Quotes

Bugs Bunny: [bitter] Yeah, the turtle always wins. How does he do it? I can't understand it. It's against the laws of nature. Why, it just ain't in the cards. A turtle beating me, a rabbit! A natural speed merchant! Why, I'm in the pink. Yeah, I'm an athlete. I've got an athlete's physi-que. Sure! I've got an athlete's legs. Certainly! I even got athlete's foot. How does that moron do it? I'll find out his secret if is the last thing I ever do! And I will, too.

[Bugs is at Cecil's door, disguised as an old man]

Cecil Turtle: Hello, old timer.

Bugs Bunny: Hello, Johnny. Tell me, Johnny. How come you always beat that rabbit?

Cecil Turtle: Clean living, friend. Clean living.

Bugs Bunny: That ain't the way I heard it, Johnny. The way I heard it, you have a secret way of winning. What is it, huh?

Cecil Turtle: Well, I'll tell you. The secret is modern design. You know, streamlining. Yup, we turtles are built for racing.

[Bugs types on a typewriter hidden on his beard]

Cecil Turtle: [Pulls out a blueprint of his shell] You can see for yourself, we got an airflow chassis. Yes siree, Pop. An airflow chassis.

[Taps his shell]

Cecil Turtle: Now take rabbits. They're built all wrong for racing.

[Bugs types some more]

Cecil Turtle: Those ridiculous ears. Tsk, tsk, tsk. Wind resistance, son. Just wind resistance

[Bugs types some more, then Cecil resets the typewriter for him; He closes the door, then comes back out again]

Cecil Turtle: Another thing: rabbits aren't very bright, either.

[Closes door]

Bugs Bunny: Oh, that little so-and-so!

Mrs. Turtle: Who was it, Cece?

Cecil Turtle: Well, sweetie face, it was that rabbit again. I think he's about ready for another race.
