- May the hills echo with your new voice, my son.
- Boyd: [while playing Marco Polo] No fair! Louie didn't say "polo"!
- Ella: Well, he can't talk.
- Boyd: Can't talk? And he calls himself a Trumpeter Swan? I don't think so.
- Billie: Louie can't help it. Father says he's, you know, [whispering] defective.
- Boyd: Well, defect, Marco Polo is a talking game, and if you can't talk, you can't play!
- [while Ella and Billie are playing a game, Louie stands nearby]
- Ella: You've got the beat, bro. Wanna join in?
- Louie: [to himself] If only she knew how much.
- Ella: Oh, sorry.
- Billie: Now see what you did?
- Ella: Sorry. It's not my fault he's, you know, defective.
- Serena: [seeing Louie's heart-shaped cloud] It's beautiful.
- Boyd: Okay, okay, what does it say?
- Serena: It says that Louie is mine, and I am his, forever.
- Boyd: [angrily; to Louie] So you can talk now, huh? Well, let's see what you have to say without your horn!
- [Boyd attacks Louie and knocks his horn into the water]
- Louie: No! My voice!
- Boyd: Ha, ha, there goes your love call, songbird! Now get off my lake, and this time, don't come back!
- [They both fight]
- [after Sam saves Ella and Billie from a wolf, with Louie's warning]
- Father: Thank goodness you are safe, my precious daughters. When I think of what could have happened with poor Louie here unable to cry out a warning! But I'm sure you tried your best, son.
- Louie: I did try! Can't he see how hard I tried?
- Mother: Darling, that human boy, he saved the lives of our children.
- Father: He has my eternal gratitude.
- Sam: Hey, it was no problem.
