Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)
Meryl Streep: Mrs. Fox
Mrs. Fox : I'm going to lose my temper now.
Mr. Fox : When?
Mrs. Fox : Right now.
Mr. Fox : Well, when...
[Mrs Fox slashes his face]
Mr. Fox : OW!
Mr. Fox : Twelve fox years ago, you made a promise to me, while we were caged inside that fox trap, that if we survived, you would never steal another chicken, turkey, goose, duck, or a squab - whatever they are, and I believed you. Why? Why did you lie to me?
Mr. Fox : Because I'm a wild animal.
Mrs. Fox : You are also a husband and a father.
Mr. Fox : I'm trying to tell you the truth about myself.
Mrs. Fox : I don't care about the truth about yourself. This story is too predictable.
Mr. Fox : Predictable? Really? What happens in the end?
Mrs. Fox : In the end, we all die. Unless you change.
Ash : [Mr. Fox has just lost his tail in the shooting] It'll grow back, won't it?
Kylie : Tails don't grow back.
Ash : Tails don't grow back?
Kylie : Uh-uh. 'Cept for lizards.
Mr. Fox : Tails don't grow back. I'm gonna be tail-less for the rest of my life.
Ash : Well, anyway, it's not half as bad as double pneumonia, right? I mean his dad's got one foot in the grave and three feet on a banana peel. That's a lot worse than just a...
Kristofferson : [ricochets an acorn around the room, which lands in the teacup he is holding] Excuse me, everyone. I'm gonna go meditate for half an hour.
Mrs. Fox : [to Ash] You have got twenty-nine minutes to come up with a proper apology.
Ash : Me? ME have an apology? He gets a bandit hat? He just got here, and he gets a bandit hat? Where's MY bandit hat? Why didn't I get shot at? It's because, you... you... you think I'm no good at anything! Well, maybe you're right, thanks.
[stomps away angrily and slams door upon exit]
Kylie : [to Mr. Fox] Told ya not to bring him.
Mrs. Fox : [sees her husband, Kris and Kylie sneaking through the kitchen] Another book party?
Mr. Fox : [surprised] Oh! I didn't see you sitting in the dark over there.
Mr. Fox : Yeah! No actually, there's a fire. I just got the call; they said maybe it's arson. I've got to interview the marshal and see if it's...
Mrs. Fox : [turns on the light] Kylie, is he telling the truth?
Kylie : I... I don't want to be put into the middle of this!
Mr. Fox : Thanks, Kylie.
Mrs. Fox : Why is he wearing that bandit hat?
[points at Kris, wearing a bandit hat]
Mr. Fox : His ears were cold. He's not with us.
Mr. Fox : Go back to bed.
[Kris leaves and closes the door]
Mrs. Fox : If what I think is happening, IS happening... it better not be.
Mr. Fox : Wake up, everybody, they're digging us out!
Mrs. Fox : They'll kill the children!
Mr. Fox : Over my dead body they will!
Mrs. Fox : That's what I'm saying, you'd be dead too in that scenario!
Mr. Fox : Well, I'm arguing against that!
Mrs. Fox : What are you talking about?
Mr. Fox : WHY ARE YOU YELLING AT ME?
Kylie : STOP, STOP, STOP! You say one thing, she says another, and it all changes back again!
Mr. Fox : [to his wife] Badger's right. These farmers aren't gonna quit until they catch me. I shouldn't have lied to your face. I shouldn't have fallen off the wagon and started stealing chickens on the sly. I shouldn't have driven these farmers so far and cussed with their heads. I enjoyed it, but I shouldn't have done it. But now there's only one way out of this. Maybe if I hand myself over and let them kill me, stuff me, and hang me over their mantelpiece...
Mrs. Fox : You'll do no such thing.
Mr. Fox : Darling, maybe they'll let everyone else live.
Mrs. Fox : [in tears] Oh, why did you have to get us into this, Foxy?
Mr. Fox : I don't know, but I have a possible theory. I think I have this thing where I need everybody to think I'm the greatest, the quote-unquote Fantastic Mr. Fox. And if people aren't knocked out and dazzled and slightly intimidated by me, I don't feel good about myself. Foxes traditionally like to court danger, hunt prey, and outsmart predators, and that's what I'm good at. I think at the end of the day, I'm just...
Mrs. Fox : I know, we're wild animals.
Mr. Fox : Hmm. I guess we always were. I promise you, if I had all this to do over again, I'd have never let you down. It was always more fun when we did it together, anyway.
