Lady Aberlin: [Sarcastically] Oh good, X, that would be more fun.

Lady Aberlin: We all make mistakes, Lady Elaine.
Lady Elaine Fairchilde: Well next time I sure will remember to knock on this tree.
X the Owl: And if I'm here, I'll probably invite you to come in.
Lady Elaine Fairchilde: Thanks, toots.

Lady Elaine Fairchilde: Okay, then.

Lady Aberlin: Why don't you try it?
X the Owl: Okay. I wish, I wish, I wish for 3,000 oranges in my tree.

X the Owl: I'm not so sure I want wishes to come true.
Lady Aberlin: Why not?
X the Owl: Well, Henrietta, you know Henrietta Pussycat, my neighbor, she said to me, "What if all your wishes would come true, X?"
Lady Aberlin: And then what did you say?
X the Owl: Well, I thought about the times when I'm angry and wished for bad things. I wished my tree would fall down and all kinds of bad things.
[singing]
X the Owl: One time I wished that my tree would fall down/ And hit someone else on the head/ I was mad all the day/ And I just couldn't say/ Why owls and people and things get that way/ I wished for some terrible thing/ I'd say/ Especially trees falling down/ But that wish certainly didn't come true/ 'Cause scary mad wishes don't make things come true/No, scary mad wishes don't make things come true.

Cornflake S. Pecially: Well, first you think about it, and then if you need help I'll be right here to help you figure it out.
X the Owl: I think that buying is alot harder than selling, Corny.
Cornflake S. Pecially: Well it takes very careful thinking.

X the Owl: There's a chapter in my new OCS course on money that has to do with work.
Ellen Paterson: Money has *a lot* to do with work.
X the Owl: Because?
Ellen Paterson: Because most people get paid money when they work.
X the Owl: Oh. Like you?

Chuck Aber: Sounds like a little of each to me.


"Mister Rogers' Neighborhood: 1183 (#4.53)" (1971)
X the Owl: Oh, Nurse Miller, well how in the world are you?

X the Owl: Oh, you get this ball and you use your wings and you try to keep it up in the air for as long as you can, and if you keep it up for three minutes, you sing "ding ding ding' like that. It's fun, but you need wings for it.
Lady Aberlin: I was thinking we could play football, but not everybody on our team has feet.
Bob Dog: Yeah, or Paw Ball. But not everybody has paws.


"Mister Rogers' Neighborhood: 1661: Love (#23.6)" (1993)
Henrietta Pussycat: Meow bear! Meow!
