The Secret of NIMH (1982)
Justin: It's Jenner. He's at it again.
Mr. Ages: There blows an ill wind!
Justin: He's before the Grand Council now. This time he's attacking Nicodemus openly.
Mr. Ages: And the plan, no doubt.
Justin: Nothing will come of it. I'll pass.
Mr. Ages: Beware, boy, he's dangerous! He'll be the undoing of the rats of NIMH.

Mrs. Brisby: Pardon me, but I couldn't help noticing that you're limping.
Mr. Ages: That is none of your affair. Now, to what you are about to see and hear you must swear absolute secrecy.
Mrs. Brisby: Yes, I understand...
Mr. Ages: Swear it!
Mrs. Brisby: I swear.
Mr. Ages: If word were to get out, we'd have all of humanity here to-to blow the place apart.
Mrs. Brisby: Is it always this dark?
Mr. Ages: We're down three feet.

Justin: [Sneaks up behind Mr. Ages and covers his eyes] Reveal thy name.
Mr. Ages: Justin, you featherhead! Get your hands off me!

Jenner: Friends, we cannot move the Brisby home.
Mr. Ages: We-we can't just leave it here, in the mud.
Jenner: The equipment is a shambles. One day we will journey to Thorn Valley, just as Nicodemus wanted, but not now. Come, let us return to the rosebush, where we belong.

Mrs. Brisby: I went to see the Great Owl.
Mr. Ages: Owl? You say you saw the Owl?
Mrs. Brisby: Yes. He told me to ask for Nicodemus.
Mr. Ages: Yes, I know Nicodemus.
Mrs. Brisby: He lives with the rats.
Mr. Ages: More specifically, he's the leader of the rats.
Mrs. Brisby: You know him?
Mr. Ages: [abruptly] No one has ever seen the Owl! And live to tell about it.


The Secret of NIMH 2: Timmy to the Rescue (1998) (V)
10 Year Old Timmy: [Timmy runs up to Mr. Ages] Mr. Ages! Did you see it Mr. Ages? That old snake won't be hunting us for breakfast anymore.
Mr. Ages: Hmm no. I suppose he won't. Well at least I know what happened to the weather balloon I asked you to get for me.
10 Year Old Timmy: Oh, I'm sorry. I was just trying to help make the valley safe.
Mr. Ages: The valley is safe enough as long as it remains unknown to the outside world. My boy what have I've been trying to teach you all these months?
10 Year Old Timmy: Um that it's OK for guys to wear the same underwear three days in a row.
[Mr. Ages puts his hand on Timmy's shoulder]
Mr. Ages: Well that was just between us. Now what else?
[Mr. Ages and Timmy go on a walk]
10 Year Old Timmy: I've got to think things all the way through.
Mr. Ages: And if snakes go flying through the air, humans might find out about Thorn Valley. And then we might be in real danger.
10 Year Old Timmy: From who?
Mr. Ages: From NIMH.
10 Year Old Timmy: What's NIMH?
Mr. Ages: Let's hope you never find out. Your father saved us from NIMH. We wouldn't be in Thorn Valley if it weren't for him. Jonathan Brisby was a great mouse. And you're his son. You can be every bit remarkable as he was if you think things through. Always see the big picture.
[Shows Timmy a statue of Jonathan Brisby in the fountain]
10 Year Old Timmy: I'll never be you.
