- Tigger: [looking at his reflection] Oh, hey, hey. Look, look, look. [gasps] What a strange-looking creature. Mmm, look at those beady little eyes, and that "purrposterous" chin, and those "rickydickorous" striped pajamas.
- Winnie the Pooh: Looks like another tigger to me.
- Tigger: Oh, no, it's not. I'm the only tigger. Watch me scare the stripes off of this imposter. [chuckles and growls at reflection; he scares himself, hides under the table] Is-Is-Is... Is he gone?
- Winnie the Pooh: All except for the tail. [Tigger tucks his tail] He's gone.
- Tigger: Yuck! Tiggers don't like honey!
- Winnie the Pooh: Where are you going, Piglet?
- Piglet: That's what I'm asking myself, where? [A gust of wind lifted Piglet into the air] W-Whoops! P-P-P-Pooh!
- Winnie the Pooh: [grabbing Piglet's scarf] And what do you think you will answer yourself?
- Piglet: No, Pooh. This house belongs to our very good friend Owl.
- Roo: Look, mama, look! A kite!
- Kanga: Oh, my goodness! It's Piglet!
- Owl: This is just a mild spring zephyr compared to the big wind of '67. Or was it, uh, '76? Oh, well, no matter. Oh, I remember the big blow well.
- Piglet: I'll remember this one, too.
- Owl: It was the year my Aunt Clara went to visit her cousin. Now, her cousin was not only gifted on the glockenspiel, but being a screech owl, also sang soprano in the London Opera.
- Winnie the Pooh: [muffled, with a honey pot in his face] Thank you, Piglet.
- Owl: For you see, her constant practicing was so unnerved my aunt, that she laid a seagull egg by mistake and licked the platter so to speak. Whoooooooo! [his dishes crash on him as his house crash to the ground]
- Christopher Robin: [looks at Owl's demolished house] What a pity. Owl, I don't think we'll ever be able to fix it.
- Eeyore: [seemed know what to do] If you ask me, and nobody has I say when a house looks like that, it's time to find another one.
- Tigger: [sitting on top of Pooh's tummy] Hello! I'm Tigger!
- Hip Hip Poohray!
- All Nooh!
