- If you can't say somethin' nice [pauses, both for drama and because both Thumper and the actor who played him couldn't remember his line], don't say nothin' at all.
- "Eating greens is a special treat. It makes long ears and great big feet. [to Bambi] But it sure is awful stuff to eat." [whispering] I made that last part up myself.
The Great Prince
- [to Bambi] Your mother can't be with you anymore.
- [to Bambi] It is Man. He is here again. There are many this time. We must go deep into the forest. Hurry! Follow me!
- Faline: He's kinda bashful, isn't he mama?
- Bambi's mother: [last words] Faster! Faster, Bambi! Don't look back! Keep running! Keep running!
- Friend Owl: Nearly everybody gets twitterpated in the springtime. For example, you're walking along minding your own business, you're looking neither to the left, nor to the right, when all of the sudden, you run smack into a pretty face. WHOO-WHOO! [Flower jumps into Thumper's lap in shock] You begin to get weak in the knees, your head's in a whirl! And then you feel light as feather, and before you know it you're walking on air! [mimes walking on the air] And then you know what? You're knocked for a loop! And you completely lose your head! It can happen to you, and you! [looks at Skunk] Yes, it can even happen to you.
- [Some pheasants are hiding from Man in the grass]
- Pheasant 1: [listening] Listen... he's coming!
- Pheasant 2: Ssshh!
- Pheasant 3: Be quiet.
- Pheasant 1: [Nervously] He's coming closer!
- Pheasant 2: I know.
- Pheasant 3:: Don't get excited.
- Pheasant 1: [almost terrified and horrified to death for her limits] We'd better fly!
- Pheasant 2: No!
- Pheasant 3: No, don't fly! Whatever you do, don't fly!
- Pheasant 1: He's almost here... [terrifiedfully and horrifiedfully cryiing to death] I CAN'T STAND IT ANY LONGER!
- [The other pheasants watch sadly as she flies, and is shot]
