  • Silver schmilver! As long as you're a fox!


A grey fox (left) and a young (silver-painted) red fox (right) meet in the cell.
Grey Fox: Bud, we're bustin' outta here tonight, see? Nine o'clock. You with us, ain't ya?
[the camera swiftly pans right to a young (silver-painted) red fox]
(Silver-painted) Fox: Gettin' outta here? Outta here? Oh n-n-no, I just got in here. [chuckles] I'm practically sold already. Yeah, to Mrs. Van Dough. H-he said so.
[the camera swiftly pans left to a grey fox]
Grey Fox: Say, are you nuts? Now listen, bud, they're all goin' out, see? And you with us, or... [slits the neck with his finger]
[the camera swiftly pans right again]
(Silver-painted) Fox: Huh... [clumsy slits the neck with his finger]
[the camera swiftly pans left again, then a grey fox slits the neck harder with his finger, and it swiftly pans right again]
(Silver-painted) Fox: Oh well... [slits the neck with his finger] Well, I-I'd like to go with you sure. I wanna go with you, but... t-the door is locked. Yeah, I can't get off. No key.
[the camera swiftly pans left again]
Grey Fox: No key? [chomps on his nail file harder to make a key] Nine o'clock call.
