- I'm gonna catch me a rabbit, and I'm a-gonna put him in this pot. This pot right here. Yeah-uh-yeah! Yeah-uh-yeah! That's JUST what I'm gonna do!
- Bugs Bunny: Hey, what's cooking, chief? Mmm, something smells good. What's for dinner?
- Hiawatha: Rabbit stew.
- Bugs Bunny: Rabbit? Mmm-mmm. Boy, I sure do love rabbit... RABBIT?! [jumps out of the cauldron]
