Bugs Bunny: [after being beaten up by Sam] Eh, what's up, Doc?
Yosemite Sam Schultz: Trying to pull a escape, 777174, eh?
Bugs Bunny: Oh, you're mistaken, Mac. You see, I'm not 777174. I'm only three and a half.
Yosemite Sam Schultz: Three and a half? Okay, so you're three and a half.
[The scene cut to Bugs, cracking rocks and wearing a prisoner uniform with the number 3½]
Bugs Bunny: Eh, my mother told me there'd be days like this.
Yosemite Sam Schultz: [laughs sadistically] You'll do 50 years, or my name ain't Sam Schultz!

[Sam, having been tricked into putting on a prison uniform and digging through his cell, finds himself in the warden's office.]
Warden: SCHULTZ!! Just what is the meaning of this?! [next scene, off-screen] I won't stand for anymore of your nonsense! Now, get out! Out! [Sam leaves]
Yosemite Sam Schultz: [mutters] I hate him!
[Next scene, Bugs is walking around with a carrot before Yosemite Sam chases him around the prison. Bugs goes up the stairs and presses the switch on the elevator and goes down while being followed by Sam]
Yosemite Sam Schultz: Come back here, you muley-headed maverick! [presses the switch, but ends up getting hanged by a rope. He rants about this failure]
Warden: [through intercom] Schultz! OFFICE!!
[Next scene, Sam opens the door to the warden's office, he peaks in with his hat taken off and gives a sheepish grin. Only to see Bugs disguised as the warden.]
Bugs Bunny: [as warden] Well, come in, Schultz. [steps closer to the warden's desk. Bugs opens a box of cigars] Have a cigar.
Yosemite Sam Schultz: [puts his hat back on and takes a cigar] Gee, caroonie caroonies. [sniffs at cigar]
Bugs Bunny: Here, pull up a chair and sit down, Schultz. [Sam pulls up an electric chair and sits down] Schultz, I've been getting some good reports about you. Oh, uh, pardon me, have a light. [Bugs pulls a breakers that turns on the electric chair causing Sam to get shocked which causes his cigar to turn into ashes and falls to the floor. Then, Bugs accidentally takes off his mustache as he removes some ashes from his cigar] Warm enough for you, Schultz?

Warden: Yes? [Sam bonks him in the head with a bat, a lump comes up and Sam bats it back down.] [next scene, off-screen] I've had all the tomfoolery I'm gonna take from you! Quiet! One more slip, you strudel-brained bonehead, and you'll be looking for another job! Now, get out! OUT! [Sam leaves with purple eyes, having had enough]

Yosemite Sam Schultz: He's gone! He's gone! I'm rid of 'im! [celebrates until...]
Warden: [enraged through intercom] SCHULTZ!!! OFFICE!!!!!
Yosemite Sam Schultz: Oh, no...
[Sometime later, Sam wears a prisoner uniform.]
Yosemite Sam Schultz: I'd like to know what dirty stool pigeon squealed on me.
[Bugs, standing on a stool nearby, twitches his eyebrows at the audience and makes pigeon sounds.]
