Dialogue

[Young Gideon is bullying a young lamb and her friends, trying to take her tickets.]
Young Gideon: Give me your tickets right now, or I'm gonna kick your meek little sheep butt! [shoves Sharla]
Sharla: Ow! Cut it out, Gideon!
Young Gideon: Baa-Baa! [takes the tickets] What are you gonna do, cry?
[Young Judy approaches in her police costume.]
Young Judy: Hey! You heard her, cut it out!
Young Gideon: Nice costume, loser! What crazy world are you living in where you think a bunny could be a cop?
Young Judy: [unphased] Kindly return my friend's tickets!
Young Gideon: Come get 'em! But watch out, 'cause I'm a fox! And like you said in your dumb little stage play, us predators used to eat prey, and that killer instinct is still in our duh'nuh!
Travis: Uh, I'm pretty much sure it's pronounced "D-N-A".
Young Gideon: Don't tell me what I know, Travis!
Young Judy: You don't scare me, Gideon!
[Gideon shoves Judy onto the ground, knocking her police hat off her head.]
Young Gideon: You scared now?
Travis: Look at her nose twitch, she is scared!
Young Gideon: Cry, little baby bunny! Cry, cry... [Young Judy kicks him in the face, shocking everyone, Gideon feels his lips] Aw, you don't know when to quit, do you? [Young Gideon retracts his claws and slashes Young Judy's cheek leaving claw marks on it. Then he shoves her face in the dirt] I want you to remember this moment, the next time you think you'll ever be anything more than just a stupid carrot-farming dumb bunny!
[Young Gideon and Travis leave, high-fiving each other. The children rush to Judy]
Gareth: That looks bad.
Sharla: Are you okay, Judy?
Young Judy: Yeah. Yeah, I'm okay. [holds out tickets] Here you go.
Sharla: Wow! You got our tickets back!
Gareth: You're awesome, Judy!
Sharla: Yeah, that Gideon Grey doesn't know what he's talking 'bout!
Young Judy: Well, he was right about one thing: [puts her police hat back on, as determination spreads across her face] I don't know when to quit!

[Judy is with her parents as she gets ready for the train to Zootopia.]
Bonnie Hopps: We're real proud of you, Judy.
Stu Hopps: Yeah. And scared, too.
Bonnie: Yes.
Stu: Really it's a kind of a "proud-scared" combo. I mean Zootopia! It's so far away, such a big city, and--
Judy Hopps: Guys, I've been working for this my whole life!
Bonnie: We know, and we're just a little excited for you, but terrified.
Judy: The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
Stu: And also, bears. We have bears to fear, too. To say nothing about lions, and wolves--
Bonnie: Wolves?
Stu: Weasels!
Bonnie: You play cribbage with a weasel?
Stu: Yeah, and he cheats like there's no tomorrow. You know what? Pretty much all predators, and Zootopia's full of them!
Bonnie: Oh, Stu.
Stu: And foxes are the worst!
Bonnie: Actually, your father does have a point there. It's in their biology. Remember what happened with Gideon Grey?
Judy: When I was nine. Gideon Grey was a jerk who happened to be a fox. I know plenty of bunnies who are jerks.
Stu: Sure, yeah. We all do, absolutely. But just in case, we made you a little care package to take with you.
Bonnie: And I put some snacks in there.
Stu: This is fox deterrent.
Bonnie: Yeah, that's safe to have.
Stu: This is fox repellent.
Bonnie: Okay, the deterrent--
Stu: [shows Judy a fox taser] Check this out!
[The fox taser unleashes a powerful zap, surprising Stu.]
Bonnie: Oh for goodness sake! She has no need for a fox taser, Stu.
Stu: Oh come on, when is there not a need for a fox taser?
Judy: Okay, look, I will take this [shows her parents the fox repellent] to make you stop talking.
Stu: Terrific! Everyone wins!

[Judy meets two of her neighbors at her new apartment.]
Judy: Oh, hi! I’m Judy, your new neighbor!
Bucky: Yeah? Well we’re loud.
Pronk: Don’t expect us to apologize for it.

[The next day, Judy is doing her meter maid duty again. A parking meter goes off and she puts a ticket on a car. A moose is angry.]
Moose: [grunts angrily] I was 30 SECONDS OVER!
[Another parking meter expired and Judy puts a ticket on a tiny car]
Mouse: Ugh! Yeah, you're a real hero, lady.
[Another parking meter goes off and Judy puts another ticket on another car.]
Hippo kid: My mommy says she wishes you were dead.
Offscreen angry driver: Uncool, rabbit! My tax dollars pay your salary! [Judy, bummed, goes inside her car and bangs her head on the steering wheel.]
Judy: I am a real cop. I am a real cop. I am a real cop. I am a real cop.

[Judy has volunteered to find Emmit Otterton, much to Chief Bogo's annoyance.]
Chief Bogo: I will give you 48 hours.
Judy: [excited] YES!!!
Chief Bogo: That’s two days to find Emmitt Otterton.
Judy: Okay.
Chief Bogo: But! You strike out, you resign.
Judy: [enthusiasm drops] Oh. Uh... Okay. Deal.
Chief Bogo: Splendid. Clawhauser will give you the complete case file.

[Judy has tracked down Nick, believing him to be a lead in her case. She drives her meter maid cart next to him.]
Judy: Hi! Hello! It's me again.
Nick: Hey, it's Officer Toot-toot!
Judy: Ha-ha-ho. No. Actually, it's Officer Hopps, and I'm here to ask you some questions about a case.
Nick: What happened, meter maid? Did someone steal a traffic cone? It wasn't me.
[Annoyed, Judy rides up and pulls up in front of Nick, blaring her siren.]
Nick: Hey, Carrots, you're gonna wake the baby. I gotta get to work.
Judy: [gets out of her cart with the folder, a notepad, and a carrot pen] This is important, sir. I think your "$10" worth of pawpsicles can wait.
Nick: Ha! I make 200 bucks a day, Fluff. 365 days a year, since I was 12. And time is money. Hop along.
Judy: Please, just look at the picture. [shows a close up picture of Otterton] You sold Mr. Otterton that pawpsicle, right? Do you know him?
Nick: I know everybody. And I also know that somewhere, there's a toy store missing its stuffed animal. So why don't you get back to your box?
Judy: [her smile drops, then becomes serious] Fine. Then we’ll have to do this the hard way.
[In a split second, there’s a parking boot attached to Nick’s stroller.]
Nick: Did you just boot my stroller?
Judy: Nicholas Wilde, you are under arrest.
Nick: [scoffs amused] For what? [baby voice] Hurting your feewings?
Judy: [smiles slyly] Felony tax evasion. [Nick's smile fades and his eyes widen flabbergasted as Judy writes.] Yeah... $200 a day, 365 days a year since you were 12... So that's two decades, so times 20, which is... $1,460,000, I think. I mean, I am just a dumb bunny, but we are good at multiplying. Anyway, according to your tax forms, you reported, let me see here... zero! [Nick's face freezes] Unfortunately, lying on a federal form is a punishable offense. Five years jail time.
Nick: Well, it's my word against yours.
[Judy pulls out her carrot pen and plays back Nick's confession.]
Nick: [through carrot pen] "200 bucks a day, Fluff. 365 days a year, since I was 12."
Judy: Actually, it's your word against yours. And if you want this pen, you're going to help me find this poor missing otter, or the only place you'll be selling pawpsicles is the prison cafeteria. [grins] It's called a hustle, sweetheart.
[Slight pause]
Finnick: She hustled you. [opens the stroller, laughing] She hustled you good! You're a cop now, Nick! You're gonna need one of these. [slaps his police sticker on Nick's shirt. Nick frowns] Have fun working with the fuzz! [leaves still laughing]
Judy: [to Nick] Start talking.
Nick: [sighs] I don't know where he is, I only saw where he went.
Judy: Great! Let's go! [gets in her car]
Nick: [grins] It's not exactly a place for a cute little bunny.
Judy: [annoyed] Don't call me cute! Get in the car!
Nick: [smirking] Okay, you're the boss. [joins Judy]

[Judy and Nick are at the Mystic Spring Oasis, a naturalist club.]
Judy: OHHHHH! You are naked!
Yax: Huh? Oh, for sure! We're a naturalist club!
Nick: Yeah. In Zootopia, anyone can be anything. And these guys? They be naked.

[Judy and Nick are searching a limousine for clues, when Nick finds a glass emblazoned with a "B".]
Nick: Well, now, wait a minute. Polar bear fur, Rat Pack music, fancy cup? [realizes something] I know whose car this is. We gotta go!
Judy: Why? Whose car is it?
Nick: The most feared crime boss in Tundratown. They call him Mr. Big, and he does not like me, so we gotta go!
Judy: We're not leaving, this is a crime scene!
Nick: Well, it's gonna be an even bigger crime scene if Mr. Big finds me here, [opens door] so we're leaving right now! [He turns and sees two polar bears waiting for them] Oh, gah! Raymond! And is that Kevin? Long time, no see. And speaking of no see, how about you forget you saw me? Huh? For old time's sake? [Raymond and Kevin grab Judy and Nick by their throats] That's a no.
[Judy and Nick are sitting between the two bears in a car being driven to see Mr. Big. One of the bears is looking on his smartphone at a photo of him and the other bear trapping a wolf in a headlock and chuckles to himself.]
Judy: [whispering] What did you do that made Mr. Big so mad at you?
Nick: [whispering] I, um... I may have sold him a very expensive wool rug...that was made from the fur of a skunk...'s butt.
Judy: Oh, sweet cheese and crackers.

[Mr. Big, a crime boss arctic shrew, is interrogating Nick after two polar bears brought him and Judy to his home.]
Mr. Big: [speaking in a Vito-Corleone-style voice] You come here unannounced on the day my daughter is to be married.
Nick: Well, actually, we were brought here against our will, so... [laughs nervously; Mr. Big gives him a look] Point is, I, I did not know that it was your car, and I certainly did not know about your daughter's wedding.
Mr. Big: I trusted you, Nicky. I welcomed you into my home. We broke bread together. Grandmama made you a cannoli. And how did you repay my generosity? With a rug, made from the butt of a skunk. A skunk butt rug. You disrespected me. You disrespected my Grandmama, whom I buried in that skunk butt rug. [Koslov crosses his chest in prayer.] I told you to never to show your face here again, but here you are, snooping around with this... [to Judy] What are you, a performer? What's with the costume?
Judy: Sir, I am a co-
Nick: Mime! She is a mime! This mime cannot speak! You can't speak if you're a mime.
Judy: No, I am a cop. [Nick sighs; Judy shows the Otterton picture] And I'm on the Emmitt Otterton case, and my evidence puts him in your car! So intimidate me all you want, I'm gonna find out what you did to that otter if it's the last thing I do.
Mr. Big: Then I have only one request: Say hello to Grandmama. [to the polar bears] Ice 'em!
[The polar bears grab Judy and Nick.]
Nick: Whoa, whoa, whoa! I didn't see nothing! I'm not saying nothing!
Mr. Big: And you never will.
Nick: Please!
Judy: Put me down! [the polar bears open a trap door, revealing an ice water pit and dangle Judy and Nick]
Nick: No, no, no, no, no! If you're mad at me about the rug, I've got more rugs!
Fru Fru: [enters the room] Oh, Daddy! It's time for our dance! [sees the polar bears, holding Judy and Nick above the pit; upset] Uh! What did we say? No icing anyone at my wedding!
Mr. Big: I have to baby, Daddy has to. Ice 'em! [the polar bears prepare to lower Judy and Nick]
Nick: No, no, no!
Fru Fru: Wait. Wait! [the polar bears stop again] She's the bunny that saved my life yesterday! From that giant donut!
Mr. Big: This bunny?
Fru Fru: Yeah! [waves to Judy] Hi!
Judy: Hi. I love your dress!
Fru Fru: Aw... Thank you!
Mr. Big: Hm. Put 'em down. [the polar bears close the trap door and put Judy and Nick down; to Judy] You have done me a great service. I will help you find the otter. I will take your kindness and pay it forward. [Judy leans forward and Mr. Big kisses Judy on both cheeks. Nick looks at them dumbfounded]

[Judy and Nick are trying to get away from a savage jaguar.]
Nick: [as Judy holds onto a vine] Rabbit, whatever you do, do not let go!
Judy: I’m gonna let go!
Nick: What?!

[Nick is finishing telling Judy his story of how he was bullied by prey junior ranger scout kids as a kid.]
Nick: I learned two things that day. One: I was never gonna let anyone see that they got to me.
Judy: And two?
Nick: If the world's only gonna see a fox as shifty and untrustworthy, there's no point trying to be anything else.
Judy: Nick, you are so much more than that. [puts her paw on Nick's arm]

[when Judy and Nick are at the Cliffside Asylum, eavesdropping a conversation between Mayor Lionheart and Dr. Madge Honey Badger]
Leodore Lionheart: Enough! I don't want excuses, doctor! I want answers!
Badger Doctor: Mayor Lionheart, please. We're doing everything we can.
Leodore Lionheart: Really? Because I've got a dozen and a half animals in here who'd gone off-the-rails crazy, and you can't tell me why! Now, I'd call that awfully far from "doing everything"!
Badger Doctor: Sir, it might be time to consider their biology.
Leodore Lionheart: What? What do you mean, biology?
Badger Doctor: The only animals going savage are predators. We cannot keep it a secret, we need to come forward!
Leodore Lionheart: [ironically] Hmmm. Great idea. Tell the public. And how do you think they're gonna feel about their mayor... [yells angrily] WHO IS A LION?! I'LL BE RUINED!!
Badger Doctor: Well, what does Chief Bogo say?
Leodore Lionheart: Chief Bogo doesn't know and we are going to keep it that way.

[Judy has just finished speaking at a press conference and has inadvertently offended Nick.]
Judy: [relieved] That went so fast, I didn't get a chance to mention you, or say anything about how we --
Nick: [upset] Oh, I think you said plenty.
Judy: What do you mean?
Nick: "Clearly there's a biological component"? "These predators may be reverting back to their primitive savage ways"? Are you serious?
Judy: I just stated the facts of the case. I mean, it's not like a bunny could go savage.
Nick: Right. But a fox could, huh?
Judy: Nick, stop it! You're not like them.
Nick: [gets angry] Oh, there's a them now?!
Judy: You know what I mean! You're not that kind of predator.
Nick: The kind that needs to be muzzled? The kind that makes you think you need to carry around fox repellent? Yeah, don't think I didn't notice that little item the first time we met! So l-let me ask you a question: are you afraid of me? [Judy stares at Nick in disbelief, her nose slightly twitching in fear.] Do you think I might go nuts? Think I might go savage? You think that I might try to...[jumps forward] EAT YOU?! [Judy instinctively jumps back and puts her hand over the Fox Repellent.] I knew it. [scoffs] Just when I thought somebody actually believed in me, huh? [He gives Judy back the application she gave him for the ZPD and leaves.] Probably best if you don't have a predator as a partner.

[Judy, her parents, and Gideon Grey watch some bunny kids running through a nearby field.]
Stu: Hey, kids! Don't you run through the Midnicampum holicithias!
[The bunny kids stop running and move away from them.]
Gideon Grey: Well now there's a $4 word, Mr. H. My family always just called them night howlers.
Judy: I'm sorry. What did you say?
Stu: Oh, Gid's talking about those flowers, Judy. I use them to keep bugs off the produce. But I don't like the little ones going near them on account of your Uncle Terry.
Bonnie: Yeah, Terry ate one whole when we were kids and went completely nuts.
Stu: He bit the dickens out of your mother.
[A realization sweeps over Judy.]
Judy: A bunny can go savage.
Bonnie: Savage? Well, that's a strong word. But it did hurt like the devil.
Stu: Well, there's a sizable divot in your arm. I'd call that savage.
Judy: Night howlers aren't wolves. They're flowers. The flowers are making the predators go savage. That's it! That's what I've been missing! [Judy races away, then turns back.] Keys! Keys! Keys! Hurry! Come on! [Stu tosses her the keys to the pickup truck and Judy jumps in.] Thank you, I love you, bye!
[Judy speeds the truck up and races toward Zootopia.]
Stu: You catch any of that, Bon?
Bonnie: Not one bit.
Gideon Grey: Oh, that makes me feel a bit better, I thought she was talking in tongues or something.

[Judy has found Nick under a bridge and tries to reconcile with him.]
Judy: Oh, Nick! Night howlers aren't wolves. They're toxic flowers! I think someone is targeting predators on purpose and making them go savage.
Nick: [deadpan; sarcastically] Wow. Isn't that interesting. [gets up and walks under the bridge, while Judy follows him]
Judy: Wait, listen! I... I know you'll never forgive me. And I don't blame you. I wouldn't forgive me either. [Nick stops walking, but doesn't look at her.] I was ignorant and irresponsible and small-minded. But predators shouldn't suffer because of my mistakes. I have to fix this, but I can't do it without you. [Nick still doesn't look at her.] And after we're done... you can hate me. And-- [she starts crying; voice breaking] And that'll be fine, because I was a horrible friend, and I hurt you, and you-- And you can walk away knowing that you were right all along. I really am just a dumb bunny.
[Judy continues crying, until Nick replays her words with her carrot pen.]
Judy: [through carrot pen] I really am just a dumb bunny. [rewind] I really am just a dumb bunny.
Nick: [turns around and smiles] Don't worry, Carrots. I'll let you erase it... in 48 hours. [Judy tears up with joy; she wipes away her tears and walks slowly towards Nick] All right, get in here. [Judy comes closer and leans her face on Nick's torso, still sobbing; Nick embraces her] OK. Oh, you bunnies. You're so emotional. There we go, deep breath. Are you just trying to steal the pen? Is that what this is? [Judy laughs a bit and tries to grab the pen.] You are standing on my tail though, off-off-off-off...
Judy: Oh! I'm sorry.

[after Judy and Nick have been thrown into the pit in the museum by one of Bellwether's henchmen; the suitcase with the dart gun and serum pellet knocked out of their hands]
Bellwether: Well, you should have just stayed at the carrot farm, huh? It really is too bad, I... I did like you.
Judy: What are you gonna do? Kill me?
Bellwether: [laughs] No, of course not. [aims the dart gun at Nick, evilly] He is.
[Bellwether shoots Nick with a serum pellet; he falls to the floor, writhing]
Judy: No! Oh, Nick!
Bellwether: [talking via cellphone] Yes? Police? There's a savage fox in Natural History Museum! Officer Hopps is down! Please, hurry!
Judy: No, Nick. Don't you do this, fight it.
Bellwether: Oh, but he can't help it. Can he? Since preds are just... biologically predisposed to be savages.
[Nick turns feral and attacks Judy. She tries to run away and defend herself by throwing a stuffed fawn at him. She then cowers by the wall as Nick rips the fawn to pieces with his teeth]
Bellwether: Gosh! Think of the headlines: "Hero cop killed by savage fox"!
Judy: So that's it? Prey fears predator and you stay in power?
Bellwether: Yeah. Pretty much.
Judy: It won't work!
Bellwether: Fear always works! And I'll dart every predator in Zootopia to keep it that way.
Judy: [as Nick closes in on her, growling] Oh, Nick... No...
Bellwether: Bye-bye, bunny.
[Nick locks his jaws on Judy's neck. Judy screams excruciatingly. However, after a short pause, Nick releases her and smiles]
Judy: [sticks out her tongue; theatrically] Bleh! Blood! Blood! Blood! And death!
Nick: All right, you know, you're milking it. Besides, I think we got it. [to Bellwether] I think we got it! We got it up there, thank you, Yakety-Yak! You've laid it all out beautifully!
Bellwether: [looks at the dart gun, shocked] What?
Nick: Yeah, oh, are, are you looking for the serum? [reaches into his shirt pocket and shows the real serum pellet] Well, it's right here.
Judy: What have you got in the weapon there? [Bellwether opens the dart gun's slot and discovers it is loaded with blueberries] Those are blueberries. From my family's farm!
Nick: [tastes the blueberry and blows a kiss] Mwah! They are delicious. You should try some.
Bellwether: [growls furiously, closing the gun] I framed Lionheart, I can frame you too! It's my word against yours.
Judy: Oooh! Actually... [pulls out her carrot pen and plays back Bellwether's confession]
Bellwether: [through carrot pen] "And I'll dart every predator in Zootopia to keep it that way."
Judy: It's your word against yours.
Bellwether: [her jaw drops, dumbfounded] Huh?
Judy: It's called a hustle, sweetheart. Boom.
[panicking, Bellwether tries to run, but finds herself already surrounded by Chief Bogo and the ZPD]

[At ZNN with Fabienne Growley and Peter Moosebridge]
Fabienne Growley: [she and Peter Moosebridge are smiling triumphantly] Former Mayor Dawn Bellwether is behind bars today [there's a scene with news reporters taking pictures of an angry Bellwether in an orange jumpsuit, going to jail] guilty of masterminding the savage attacks that have plaqued Zootopia of late.
Peter Moosebridge: Her predecessor, Leodore Lionheart, denies any knowledge of her plot claiming he was just trying to protect the city.
Leodore Lionheart: [being interviewed] Did I falsely imprison those animals? Well, yes. Yes, I did. It was a classic "doing the wrong thing for the right reason" kind of a deal.
Fabienne Growley: In related news, doctors say the night howler antidote is proving effective in rehabilitating the afflicted predators.
[the scene changes to Emmitt Otterton being awaken, cured from his savageness. His wife looks at him]
Mrs. Otterton: Emmitt? Oh, Emmitt! [she hugs him very deeply in relief. She turns to Judy, who is back in her police uniform and her leg is healed] Thank you. [Judy smiles, happy to serve]

Chief Bogo: All right, all right, enough. Shut it! [the officers sit] We have some new recruits with us this morning, including our first fox. [Nick is seen sitting next to Judy on the same chair she's standing on] Who cares?
Nick: Ha! You should have your own line of inspirational greeting cards, sir!
Chief Bogo: Shut your mouth, Wilde! [Judy and the officers snicker, and Bogo takes out his glasses and files] Assignments: Officers Grizzoli, Fangmeyer, Delgato; Tundratown SWAT. [they stand and leave] Snarlov, Higgins, Wolfard; undercover. [Snarlov puts on a green cap, Higgins puts on a fake mustache, and Wolfard puts on a sheep costume and they leave.] Hopps, Wilde... parking duty. Dismissed. [Judy and Nick look at the chief shocked. Then Bogo smiles] Just kidding! [seriously] We have reports of a street racer tearing up Savannah Central. Find him, shut him down.

[Judy and Nick are on their first patrol.]
Nick: So, are all rabbits bad drivers, or is it just you?
[Judy slams playfully on the brakes, making Nick lurch forward]
Judy: [deadpan, slyly] Oops. Sorry.
[Nick pulls off a pawpsicle that got stuck to his face from the impact]
Nick: [chuckles] Sly bunny.
Judy: Dumb fox!
Nick: You know you love me.
Judy: Do I know that? [smiles warmly] Yes. Yes, I do.

[last lines, before end credits; The light changes to green and before they can move, a red car with tinted windows zooms past them. They take notice and smile at each other. Nick puts on his shades and turns on the siren. Judy hits the pedal and they chase after the car. They manage to pull over the speeding motorist, and walk up to the car.]
Judy: Sir, you were going 115 miles per hour, I hope you have a good explanation.
[The window rolls down revealing Flash, looking at them nervously, and Judy is shocked.]
Nick: [surprised, removes his shades] Flash, Flash, Hundred-Yard-Dash!
Flash: [slowly smiles sheepishly] Nick!
