Sterling Holloway Quotes:

Amos Mouse: [Voiceover] It was shortly thereafter that Ben took up kite flying. To the framework of his largest kite he fastened a small box, for it was his idea that I become the world's first flying reporter. I was so enthralled by the spectacle spread below that I failed to notice a sharp, pointed wire fixed to the kite just above my head. I was the victim of a plot!


[singing]
Pokie: I had two trusty pistols, had me two leather holsters hangin' by my side. I had a two-gaited pony till the day matrimony took my bridle and gave me a bride...
[someone throws a knife at Pokie, pinning his hat to the wall beside him]
Pokie: That's all, folks.


Tigger: [looking at his reflection] Oh, hey, hey. Look, look, look.
[gasps]
Tigger: What a strange-looking creature. Mmm, look at those beady little eyes, and that "purrposterous" chin, and those "rickydickorous" striped pyjamas.
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]
Tigger: [Tigger growls at reflection; he scares himself, hides under the table]
Tigger: Is-Is-Is... Is he gone?
Winnie the Pooh: All except the tail.
[Tigger tucks his tail]
Winnie the Pooh: He's gone.
