Edgar: How are we gonna get anybody to help us find the herbs?

Waggs: Aha! NOW the truth comes out! They're just here to steal our food!

Edgar: No, we're just looking for lungwort & eyebright.

Waggs: Liar!

Edgar: It's true! We need the herbs to heal a sick badger back home!

Waggs: More lies! Why would a mole, a mouse, and a hedgehog want to help a foul-smelling, worm-eating, good-for-nothing badger?

Edgar: Michelle's none of those things. She's our friend, understand? And we've come too far to be stopped now. Step aside!

Russell: Wait a minute! I know how to get up there. We'll use Cornelius' Flapper-Wing-A-Ma-Thing.

Edgar: Russell, good thinking! We'll FLY to the top of the cliff!

Willy: You don't really mean "fly"?

Waggs: You heard 'em, Willy. They'll flap their little paws & fly like birdies.

Michelle: Uncle Cornelius, why do you look so sad?

The Furlings: Michelle!

Michelle: Of course, I am! I just had...

[yawns]

Michelle: ... a long nap!

Michelle: What's that?

Cornelius: Great Honk!

[sees the Flapper-Wing-A-Ma-Thing]

Cornelius: My Flapper-Wing-A-Ma-Thing! But how did you get it here?

Abigail: We built it.

Russell: And we flew it!

Cornelius: Marvelous! Magnificent! Stupendous! You three have changed so much these past few days, I hardly recognize you.

[happily]

Cornelius: You're no longer my Furlings. You've grown up.

Edgar's Mothers: Oh, Edgar! When we ran from the gas, I was worried sick about you! Did you forget your scarf somewhere?

Michelle: Look, Uncle Cornelius! All the mommies & daddies are coming back!

Cornelius: Not all of them, my dear. I'll never be able to replace your mummy & daddy, but I'll do my best.

[Michelle sniffles]

Michelle: I guess nothing will ever be the same again, will it, Uncle Cornelius?

Cornelius: Well, my dear, if we all work as hard to save Dapplewood as your three friends worked to save you, it will.

Abigail: Yes, daddy!

Abigail: I can hardly see him behind his papers. He must be working on an experiment.

Edgar: Good. Maybe he won't notice we're late.

Cornelius: Russell, your mouth is hanging open!

Russell: Oh, I want to fly it! PLEASE?

Abigail: Don't be silly, you'll crash it!

Cornelius: Correct, Abigail. It's far too delicate for Furlings.

Abigail: Huh? I didn't mean me!

Waggs: For all the good it'll do you, I'd like to see YOU get the lungwort! No one in Oakdale's ever been able to reach it! But I'll bet you three can!

Russell: That's right! We've already got a plan, right, Edgar?

Edgar: I don't know.

Russell: You've been leading long enough, now it's MY turn!

Abigail: You probably don't even know where you're going!

Cornelius: Russell, you are one lucky hedgehog. It's far too rare for a Furling to survive an encounter with... with...

Michelle: A monster?

Cornelius: That is a good name for it.
