Christopher Robin[edit]

  • [To Pooh when he was a child] I like that too. But what I like doing best is nothing.
  • Dreams don't come for free, Madeline. You have to work for them. Nothing comes from nothing.
  • There's more to happiness than just balloons, Pooh. Look, Madeline is happy and I'm happy that she's happy.
  • [To Pooh] There's no such things as Heffalumps and Woozles.
  • [After falling in a Heffalump trap] No, I'm not a Heffalump! They're up there! And I'm down here!
  • [To Pooh] Silly old bear.

Winnie the Pooh[edit]

  • [To Young Christopher Robin] Doing nothing often leads to the very best of something.
  • [To grown up Christopher Robin] People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing everyday.
  • [To a boy on a stroller] You're not a Woozle, are you?
  • [To Madeline] Did the red balloon make you happy? Balloons make me very happy.

Tigger[edit]

  • [After singing a song at Christopher's farewell party] I sounded incredible! Tiggers are excellent singers!
  • [To Madeline, after falling off a hill near the cottage] And I'm Tigger! T-I-Double-G-Er!
  • [Singing, after being asked by Madeline about what a 'Tigger' is] The wonderful thing about Tiggers is Tiggers are wonderful things! Their tops are made out of rubber! Their bottoms are made out of springs! They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun! But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is, I'm the only one!

Eeyore[edit]

  • [Reading a poem at Christopher's farewell party] Christopher Robin is going. At least I think he is. Where? Nobody knows. But he is going. I-I mean he goes. Do we care? We do. Very much. Anyhow, we send our love. End. If anyone wants to clap, now is the time to do it.
  • [To Madeline, after Tigger sings his song] He does that a lot.
  • [When Christopher Robin is going to fight the 'Heffalump' and brings Eeyore] Of course, sacrifice the donkey.
  • [In a post-credits scene and last lines] Thank ya for noticing me.

Piglet[edit]

  • [To young Christopher at his farewell party, giving him a sack of haycorns] Christopher Robin, I made you this sack of Hundred Acre Wood haycorns. They're my very favorite snack. Wherever you may go, they'll remind you of the Hundred Acre Wood.
  • [To grown up Christopher Robin after realizing he's not a Heffalump] So glad we're all back together again!
  • [On a train with Madeline Robin, Pooh, Tigger, and Eeyore, scared] Does this world ever slow down?

Others[edit]

  • Evelyn Robin: [To Christopher] We don't care. We want you. This is life, Christopher. This weekend is your life. Your life is happening now. Right in front of you.
  • Madeline Robin: [From a note on top of a drawing of his father and Pooh] Dear Father, I never knew you could draw so well. Maybe you could hang this one next to mine. Love, Madeline.
  • Kanga: [After noticing grown up Christopher Robin] You've grown up well.
  • Roo: [To his mother, Kanga, at Christopher's farewell party] What's a "rissolution"?
  • Rabbit: [When noticing the cake young Christopher brought to his farewell party] Is it a carrot cake?
  • Owl: [At the tree where Christopher and Pooh slept at] As my Uncle Orville used to say, "Worry is the way to concern". Or is it, "Concern is the way to confussion"?

Dialogue[edit]

[Young Christopher Robin and Pooh are sitting on a log at a tree at the top of a hill]
Young Christopher Robin: Pooh, when I'm off not doing nothing, will you come up here sometimes?
Winnie the Pooh: Just me? Where will you be?
Young Christopher: [points at Pooh's head] I'll be right here.
Pooh: [concerned] But what should happen if you forget about me?
Young Christopher: I'll never forget about you, Pooh. I promise. Not even when I'm a hundred.
Pooh: How old will I be then?
Young Christopher: [smiles] Ninety-nine. Silly old bear.
Pooh: [puts his head on Christopher's shoulder] Hmm. Ninety-nine...

Christopher Robin: [after being told they have to cut to 20%] Sir, your father promised these people good jobs to come home to after the war. Well, they'd do anything for this company. I would do anything for this company.
Giles Winslow Jr.: My father has called an emergency meeting on Monday. We need to produce the cuts by then. It's sink or swim.
Robin: [disappointed] But I promised my wife and daughter that I'd take them away this weekend, sir.
Winslow Jr.: [condescendingly] And I'd thought you'd do anything for this company.

Christopher: [sits on a bench; exhuasted] What to do, what to do, what to do?
Pooh: [behind Christopher] What to do indeed.
Christopher: (Huh?) [hears the voice and turns around to see Pooh; shocked] Pooh?
Pooh: [happy] Christopher Robin!
Christopher: [even more shocked] No! No, no, no, no, no! You-you-you can't be here! (Can you?)
Pooh: Hmm.
Christopher: [still in shock] This can't be happening! It's stress.
Pooh: It's not stress.
Christopher: My God, I'm stressed.
Pooh: It's Pooh.
Christopher: I'm so exhausted. Evelyn warned me!
Pooh: I like to be warmed. Warmed and cozy.
Christopher: I've cracked. [touches Pooh's stomach]
Pooh: Oh.
Christopher: I've totally cracked!
Pooh: I don't see any cracks. [puts his paw on Christopher's cheek] A few wrinkles, maybe.

[Christopher walks into the kitchen, with items from a shelf that broke by Pooh to be on the floor]
Pooh: [disappointed] What luck.
Christopher: [shocked] Pooh!
Pooh: Your ladder is broken.
Christopher: That's not a ladder, that was a shelf!
Pooh: Well that explains why it's no good for climbing.

[Christopher and Pooh are on a train to Sussex to take Pooh back to the Hundred Acre Wood. Christopher is doing his work.]
Christopher: [after being distracted by Pooh asking about his briefcase] Pooh, do you think you might be able to amuse yourself for a while? I have got some rather pressing work to do.
Pooh: [looks at the window] House… clouds… house… tree… bush… a man… dog…
Christopher: [distracted] Pooh, what're you doing?
Pooh: Oh, I'm playing a game. It's called, "Say What You See".
Christopher: Well, could you "say what you see" a little more quietly?
Pooh: [looks at the window, whispering] House… grass… trees… pond… I don't know what that is. Well, that's a man.
Christopher: [distracted] Pooh, little bit more quietly, please.

[Christopher and Pooh are at the 100 Acre Wood, looking for Pooh's friends. Christopher Robin gave Pooh a compass from his service in WWII, staying in one direction, until Christopher notices the "Heffalumps and Woozles" sign they just passed.]
Christopher: Isn't this the same sign? Pooh, are you sure we're still heading north?
Pooh: Let me look. [Looks at the compass]
Christopher: You haven't been looking?
Pooh: Not since I started following these footsteps.
Christopher: [drops his briefcase in frustration] Pooh, they're our footsteps! Oh, we've just been going around in a great, big circle! What's the matter with you? All you had to do was follow the compass!
Pooh: But it led us to the Heffalumps and the Woozles.
Christopher: There are no Heffalumps and Woozles, do you hear?! Oh, I should never have trusted you with it!
Pooh: [disappointed] I'm sorry. I'll put it back in the holder of important... [trips on Christopher's briefcase accidentally opening it] ...Things.

[The papers start to fly out of the briefcase from the wind]

Christopher: Oh, my papers!! They're irreplaceable! I shall never remember all of this! [He begins to pick up the papers and becomes angry] Oh, Pooh, you're right. You are a bear of very little brain! Do you know what will happen if lose one single sheet of this? Winslow will eat me for breakfast!
Pooh: A Woozle will eat you for breakfast?
Christopher: [Annoyed] Yes! A great big Woozle will gobble me up!
Pooh: Well, that doesn't sound like fun.
Christopher: And that's the real world for you! Oh, Pooh, there's more to life than just balloons and honey.
Pooh: Are you sure?
Christopher: Silly bear. I don't know why you came back. I'm not a child anymore. I'm an adult with adult responsibilities.
Pooh: But you're Christopher Robin.
Christopher: No. I'm not how you remember me. [Begins to walk away]
Pooh: [Sad] I'm sorry. You're right. You should let me go... for a fish in the sea.
Christopher: [Confused] "A fish in the sea"? No, "Efficiency"! [turns around and Pooh is gone] Pooh, Pooh, Winnie the Pooh!? I haven't got time for this. POOH! Pooh, where are you?! Oh, where have you gone? Silly bear, didn't mean to frighten you. Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, anyone!? (What have I done?) There's no such thing as Heffalumps and Woozles! Ooh, not real, not real, not real! [keeps saying that until he falls in the hole] OH, NO! NO, I'M NOT A HEFFALUMP! THEY'RE UP THERE AND I'M DOWN HERE! POOH! SOMEBODY, HELP!!! [now it starts to rain] Oh, perfect! [tries to get up but is still trapped]
[The next morning he falls asleep and has nightmares of what the characters said to him.]

[Christopher is at the tree where he and Pooh talked last time years ago. Christopher sits next to Pooh.]
Christopher: Hello, Pooh.
Pooh: [Calm] Hello, Christopher Robin.
Christopher: I'm so sorry, Pooh. I'm so terribly sorry. I... I should never have shouted at you.
Pooh: Well, I am a bear of very little brain.
Christopher: No, Pooh. You are, I think, a bear of a very big heart. You'll be happy to hear that everyone's safe and sound. I saved them from a Heffalump which was, in fact, well, me… and Owl's weather vane.
Pooh: I'm sorry I wasn't there, but I am rather glad that I was here. Waiting for you.
Christopher: Thank you for waiting for me, Pooh.
Pooh: It's always a sunny day when Christopher Robin comes to play.
Christopher: I'm not so sure about that. I'm not who I used to be.
Pooh: Of course you are. You're our friend. Look at how you saved everybody today. You are our hero.
Christopher: I'm not a hero, Pooh. I'm lost.
Pooh: But I found you, didn't I? [he and Christopher embrace each other]

Madeline Robin: [scared] You-you-you-you're talking!
Pooh: Me? No, I'm not talking. Oh, well I am now, I suppose.
Madeline: Wait. I recognize you. You're the bear in my father's drawings. (Though, I... didn't get your name.)
Pooh: [smiling] Winnie the Pooh. "Pooh" for short.

[Madeline, Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet are on a train to London]
Pooh: And the game is called, "Say What You See". You first, Piglet.
Piglet: [scared] Panic… worry… catastrophe…
Tigger: [excited] Speed… danger… recklessness! Hoo-hoo-hoo!
Eeyore: [gloomy] Disgrace… shame… humiliation…
Pooh: Well, that's one way to play it.

[Last lines]
Pooh: [After Christopher Robin gives him a jar of honey] Christopher Robin, what day is it?
Christopher: It's today.
Pooh: Oh. My favorite day.
Christopher: Mine too, Pooh. Mine too.
Pooh: Yesterday, when it was tomorrow, it was too much day for me.
Christopher: [smiling] Silly old bear.
