Balto (1995)
Steele: Let's celebrate. I know where all the bones are buried.
Jenna: I don't know, Steele. Suddenly I've lost my appetite.
Steele: Well, maybe your taste runs more toward
[short pause]
Steele: wolf.

Jenna: Steele's lying. Balto's alive. He's coming home.
[runs out the door]
Steele: [closes his eyes and nods yes] She... just needs a little time.

Balto: See this? It's the Polar Ice Caps?
Jenna: Balto, those are broken bottles, and they're not half-empty, they're all empty.
Balto: The sun, and to the north
Jenna: Oh, Balto. It's beautiful.
Balto: Yeah, Beautiful

Jenna: It's so gloomy down here.
Balto: Gloomy? You kiddin'? It's the most beautiful spot in the world. Dogs travel for years just to be right here.
Jenna: I can't see why.
Balto: That's 'cause you're looking at the bowl half empty. See, this is the polar ice caps.
[pushes a pile of broken bottles]
Jenna: Balto, those are broken bottles, and they're not half empty, they're *all* empty.
Balto: [motioning toward the grate that's overhead] The sun...
Jenna: Balto...
Balto: [continuing] ... and, to the north...
Jenna: The Northern Lights! Balto, you were right. It's beautiful.
Balto: Yeah, beautiful.

Balto: I have the keys to the city.
[disables hinges and pushes the door open; shows Jenna in]
Balto: After you.
Jenna: [noticing Balto's paws] Balto.
Balto: Big paws run in my family. At least... one side of my family.

Balto: [leading Jenna through boiler room] Stick close.
Jenna: No problem there.

Boris: [about Muk and Luk after they jump into water to save Balto] They cannot swim.
Jenna: What? Polar bears who can't *swim*?

Jenna: Are you okay?
Balto: Are you you okay?

Jenna: Steele, stop being such a glory-hound!

Balto: Jenna?
[clears throat]
Balto: Jenna?
Jenna: [looking at Rosy through the window] Balto. Oh, hi.
Balto: Hi. Look, uh... just a shot in the dark, but I was wondering if, uh... I-I don't know, maybe you'd like to go chase a few sticks by moonlight?

Jenna: It's not exactly a one-dog show, Dixie.

Jenna: [to Steele] These days I prefer my meat... cooked.

Jenna: [acting flirtatious] Gee, Steele, I have to admit, your offer is... very tempting...
[she backs him towards the boiler]
Steele: It is. Heh heh...
Jenna: But these days I prefer my meat... cooked.
[Steele realizes he is burning]

Dixie: Looks like a close race. It could even be neck and neck.
Slyvie or Sylvie: Complement her new collar before she gets whiplash.
Jenna: Is that a new collar, Dixie?
Dixie: What, this old thing? Nah. Do you think Steele will notice?
Jenna: The only way Steele notices anyone is if they're wearing a mirror.

Dixie: What's with you, Jenna? Steele's a genuine hero. But do you give him a sniff?
Slyvie or Sylvie: That's because Jenna is running with Balto.
[Dixie makes a noise of disbelief]
Slyvie or Sylvie: She was seen in the boiler room the other night with Balto. And they went in together and they left together. And I heard it all from a very reliable source, and don't bother to deny it.
Jenna: Well... then I won't.
Slyvie or Sylvie: [gasps] I'm speechless.

Jenna: You're lying.
[louder]
Jenna: Steele's lying. Balto's alive. And he's coming home.

Jenna: The sun... ice caps... Balto.

Jenna: Steele, it doesn't matter who's on the team! As long as the medicine gets through, stop being such a glory-hound!

Jenna: You're going on alone?
Balto: Won't be the first time.

Jenna: [cheering while Balto is running in the race] Go Balto!

Wild Joe: I don't get it. How could Balto hope to find Steele and his team? They were off the trail.
Jenna: Well... he's tracking them.
Morse: That mutt? Tracking a championship team in a blizzard?
[laughs; a couple others join in]
Jenna: [Steele comes in] Balto?
Jenna: Steele!
Wild Joe: You're back!
Morse: We'd given you up!
Doc: Where are the others?
Steele: [bows his head] One by one they fell. Frozen, barely alive. I pulled four onto the sled and three more on my back. I walked and I walked, but it was too late. They were...
[the other dogs gasp]
Doc: What about the medicine?
Steele: I went on, dragging the medicine alone. Suddenly that wolfdog appeared. Balto demanded I let *him* take the medicine.
[turns to Jenna]
Steele: You know he just wanted so much to be a hero in your eyes.
[turns towrd the other dogs]
Steele: He grabbed the crate, but he couldn't handle it. He didn't see the patch of ice... and the cliff.
[pulls out Jenna's bandanna]
Steele: He didn't have a chance.
[shakes his head, clucking softly]
Jenna: [gasps] My bandanna!
Steele: [gets closer to Jenna] He made me promise to take care of you, Jenna.
Jenna: You're lying.
[louder]
Jenna: Steele's lying. Balto's alive. And he's coming home.
[runs out the door]
Steele: [closes his eyes and nods yes] She... just needs a little time.

Steele: Okay... Nikki, Kaltag, Star. Gear up. We're heading out.
Balto: Wait a minute. Steele, I was the fastest dog out there.
Steele: You were the fastest... what? If you think any musher in their right mind would put you on their team... well, you're even more mixed up than I thought.
Jenna: Steele! It doesn't matter who's on the team! As long as the medicine gets through! Stop being such a glory hound!
Steele: You're a hundred percent right, Jenna. I - I - wasn't thinking about those children. The important thing here is to get the medicine through. And that's just what I'm gonna do.
[Aside, to Balto]
Steele: And when I get back, I'm gonna fold you five ways and leave you for a cat toy.

Musher: Let's take a look at our winner here!
[Steele stomps on Balto's foot, causing him to growl in pain, bearing his teeth]
Musher: We can't trust him. He's part wolf. He might turn on me. Nikki, Kaltag, Star!
[Steele smiles deviously at Balto, then walks away]
Jenna: Balto...
Balto: [depressed] Don't talk to me, Jenna. I might turn on you.

Jenna: [Jenna falls in the snow because she is hurt] Ahh! Clumsy.
Balto: No, you're not. You're hurt.
Jenna: I'm fine.
[Jenna gets back up but falls in the snow again]
Jenna: Ahh! Maybe I'm not so fine. You should go ahead without me.
Balto: Jenna...
Jenna: No no I'll be slowing everyone down. Rosy can't hold out much longer.
Jenna: Muk, you and Luk carry Jenna back to town on this.
[Balto gets a branch fallen off a tree]
Boris: And this time don't take tome out for a swim!
[Boris giggles]
Balto: You can make sure of that, Boris. You're gonna lead them home.
[to Jenna]
Balto: Just follow my marks.
Jenna: You're going all alone?
Balto: Won't be the first time.
Jenna: Here.
[Jenna takes off her bandana and puts it on Balto]
Jenna: Afraid it won't keep you very warm.
Balto: Yeah, it will.
[Balto and Jenna muzzle each other]
Muk: [Luk starts to cry] Well, of course Balto will come back. He's Balto isn't he?
Balto: Hey! I'm coming back, with the medicine. I promise, Jenna. Go ahead, guys. Take her home.
[Balto starts walking off but Boris stops him]
Boris: Balto, I do not like leaving you out here alone. Who's going to tell you how cold you are?
Balto: Boris.
[Balto shoves Boris to look at the others]
Balto: They need you even more then I do.
Boris: Let me tell you something, Balto. A dog cannot make this journey alone. But maybe a wolf can.

Balto: Balto: "Maybe it's because your looking at the bowl half-empty. See this it's the polar ice caps."
Jenna: Jenna: "Balto those are broken bottles and they're not half-empty they're all empty."
Balto: Balto:
[pushes bottles forward]
Balto: Balto:
[looking up]
Balto: "The sun, and to the north."
Jenna: Jenna: "Oh Balto your right it is beautiful."
Balto: Balto: "Yeah beautiful."

Jenna: Oh, Kodi, I-I don't believe you. There is a man out there who may be dying.
Kodi: We could've lost our jobs because of that man.
Jenna: You think your job is worth more than a life?

Balto: Wolf Quest (2002) (V)
Balto: Jenna.
Jenna: Balto, what are you doing here so early? Is Aleu alright?
Balto: I don't know. I was hoping she was with you. She's... kinda mad at me.
Jenna: Stay there.
[runs outside]
Jenna: Now tell me what happened.
Balto: [hops down from stack of crates] A hunter took aim at her.
Jenna: [gasps]
Balto: No, no. Don't worry. We got away. But I... finally had to tell her how humans see her.
Jenna: You mean you told her about being part...?
Balto: Yes. I should've done it sooner. I know that now. She's so angry with me. She must've run away.
Jenna: Run away?
Balto: I'm sorry, Jenna. I never thought it would turn out this way. I thought I could keep her safe.
Jenna: B-B-But she's not safe, she's running wild!
[starts to follow]
Balto: No, not you, Jenna. This is my fault, and it's something Aleu and I have to work out together. Don't worry. I'll find her.

Jenna: Aleu, honey, please don't howl like that.
Aleu: Sorry, mama. It just happens when I'm excited.

Balto: It's been a long day, Jenna. Let's go home.
Jenna: Not until a human adopts Aleu!
Balto: Face it, Jenna. She looks more like a wolf than me. No human is ever going to want her.
Jenna: That's not true! We have to keep trying.

Jenna: Come on in. They don't bite, at least not yet.

Jenna: I know that human. He'll be a good home for Dingo.

Jenna: [about the puppies] Watch out, they're teething.
Boris: No kidding!

Jenna: Each of our children have their own lives to live.

Jenna: But it's their time now. Why, I was their age when I was adopted by my girl.
Balto: But I don't think I can let them go, Jenna. Not yet.
Jenna: Balto, each of our children have their own lives to live. It's our job to love them, and then...
Boris: [in the background] LET GO!
Jenna: If we wait any longer, it will be harder for them to find homes. You know how humans have a soft spot for puppies.
Balto: Yeah. And so do I.

Jenna: What do you mean he just ran off?
Boris: I mean he's got Aleu scent, told me to tell you not to worry and away he went. He's a wolf on a mission.
Jenna: I'm going to help him look.
[as Jenna walks to the door Boris steps in front of her]
Boris: No, Jen! This is a journey for father and daughter. You must have faith in them.
Jenna: You're sure Balto as her trail?
[Boris nods]
Jenna: And you're sure Balto's alright?
Boris: Don't worry Jenna. Remember, they're are well-equipped. They are both... part... wolf.
