Watership Down (1978)
Hazel: Where are you going?
Fiver: Away, to the hills.
Hazel: By yourself, alone? You'll die!
Fiver: You're closer to death than I am.

Bigwig: Hazel? It is Hazel, isn't it?
Hazel: It is.
Bigwig: What are you doing here?
Hazel: [Motioning to Fiver] We want to see the chief rabbit, Bigwig.
Bigwig: We? You mean he wants to see him too?
Hazel: Yes.
Fiver: I must.
Bigwig: What on earth for?
Fiver: Well, I...
Holly: Bigwig? What do they want?
Bigwig: They want to see the chief rabbit.
Holly: What for?
Fiver: Well, I...
Holly: Send them away.
Bigwig: I'll take care of it, Holly.
[Turns back to Hazel]
Hazel: Look, Bigwig, when have I EVER asked to see the chief rabbit?
Bigwig: [Thinks over, hesitating] All right, all right. Wait here.
[Goes into warren, speaks to Chief Rabbit for a moment, comes back up]
Bigwig: Come along then. Though I'll probably get my ears chewed off for this...

Hazel: [to the cat] You look hungry! Rats getting too clever, I suppose?

Pipkin: [while all are digging in the rain] What's happening back home, I wonder? Think, when we lived in our own burrows? Dry, soft, warm bodies...
Dandelion: [to Hazel] Look, we can't go on like this.
Silver: It keeps getting worse and worse wherever we go. Where ARE we going?
Hazel: It won't be much longer, then we can all rest.
Silver: How MUCH longer?
Pipkin: We never should have left.
Blackberry: Suppose Fiver's all wrong?
Pipkin: We want to go back and find out.
Hazel: Go back? After all we've been through?
Bigwig: And probably get killed for wounding Captain Holly? An Owsla officer? Talk sense, for Frith's sake!

Dandelion: [looking at the countryside from Watership Down] O Frith on the hills! He made it all for us!
Hazel: Frith may have made it, but Fiver found it.

Hazel: Lord Frith, I know you've looked after us well, and it's wrong to ask even more of you. But my people are in terrible danger, and so I would like to make a bargain with you. My life in return for theirs.
Frith: There is not a day or night that a doe offers her life for her kittens, or some honest captain of Owsla, his life for his chief. But there is no bargain: what is, is what must be.

Fiver: There's something very queer about the warren this evening...
Hazel: Is it dangerous?
Fiver: It's not exactly danger, it's... oh, I don't know. Something oppressive... like thunder.

Hazel: [mourning the supposedly-dead Bigwig] My heart has joined the Thousand, for my friend stopped running today.

Black Rabbit: Hazel... Hazel... you know me, don't you?
Hazel: I don't know.
[the apparition reveals himself to be the Black Rabbit, and Hazel gasps]
Hazel: Yes, my lord. I know you.
Black Rabbit: I've come to ask if you'd like to join my Owsla. We shall be glad to have you, and I know you'd like it. You've been feeling tired, haven't you? If you're ready, we might go along now.
[Hazel looks at all the younger rabbits of Watership Down]
Black Rabbit: You needn't worry about them. They'll be all right, and thousands like them. If you come along now, I'll show you what I mean.

Hazel: Are you hurt?
Kehaar: Kaah kaah!
Hazel: If he's hurt, maybe we ought to help him.
Bigwig: A bird? What for?
Hazel: We - help - you.
Kehaar: Piss off!

Hazel: [Bigwig is being strangled in a snare] Bigwig! Listen, you're in a snare! A snare! And what did they tell you in Owsla? Think!
[Hazel tries to chew the wire loose]
Bigwig: [gurgles] No good biting wire...

Hazel: We'll fill in the holes good and deep. They'll have to dig us out, and they can't stay out in the open for long without attracting elil.
Blackavar: You don't know the Efrafans. They'll never give up.

Black Rabbit: Hazel? You know me, don't you?
Hazel: I don't.
[the visitor reveals himself as The Black Rabbit]
Hazel: Oh, yes, my Lord... I know you.
Black Rabbit: I've come to ask if you would like to join my Owsla. We shall be glad to have you, and I know you'd like it. You've been feeling tired, haven't you? If you're ready, we might go along now.
[Hazel pauses to look back at his rabbits]
Black Rabbit: You needn't worry about them. They'll be alright, and thousands like them. If you'll come along, I'll show you what I mean.
[Hazel lies down and dies]

Hazel: [to Cowslip] Rabbits will always need tricks!

Hazel: [while running to the farm to save his rabbits from Woundwort] Lord Frith, I know you've looked after us well and it's wrong to ask even more of you, but my people are in terrible danger! So I would like to make a bargain with you... my life in return for theirs.
Frith: There is not a day or night that a doe offers her life for her kittens or some honest captain of Owsla his life for his Chief, but there is no bargain. What is is what must be.

Hazel: [Holly is trying to stop them from leaving the warren] Go... now... or we'll kill you!
Holly: It's you who'll be killed!
[He attackks Hazel]

Bigwig: [They're being chased by a dog at the stream's edge] Come on! What d'you think will happen when he picks up our scent? Those that can swim swim. The others... will have to make out the best they can.
Hazel: That's not good enough! We all got into this together, we'll all get out of it together!

Dandelion: If we meet again, Hazel-rah, we'll have the making of the best story ever!
Hazel: And you'll be the one to tell it!
