Horton the Elephant[edit]

[repeated line] I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. An elephant's faithful 100%.

Peter Lorre fish[edit]

Well, now I've seen everything!

Dialogue[edit]

Maysie: My gracious!
Narrator: Gasped Maysie.
Maysie: I've seen you before.
Narrator: Poor Horton looked up with his face white as chalk.
He started to speak, but before he could talk,
There rang out the noisiest ear-splitting squeaks
From the egg that he sat on for 51 weeks.
Horton: My egg!
Narrator: Horton gasped.
Horton: My egg! Why, it's hatching!
