Wilbur: I'm not hungry. I just wanted someone to play with me.
Templeton: What's that? What is... Could it be? Slops!
Sheep: Oh, joy. It seems the pig slop has brought out the rodent.
Templeton: Moldy cheese. Oh, yeah. Did I have salami last night? Yep. I guess I did.
Sheep: Oh, charming.
Cow: Disgusting creature!
Wilbur: Hi, there.
Templeton: Oh, you're a pig. You're a pig. Pig equals slop. The rat is happy.
Wilbur: My name's Wilbur. Do you have a name? Or is it just "the rat"?
Templeton: Did you say "just the rat"? For your information, pig, the rat rules. We were here long before your kind, and we'll be here long after. So, you just keep that in mind next time you feel like reducing me to "just the rat."
Wilbur: You called yourself "the rat."
Templeton: I can call me that. You can't.
Wilbur: So you don't have a name?
Templeton: Of course I do. It's Templeton.
Wilbur: Templeton? Great name!
Templeton: Oh, gee, thanks.
Wilbur: Hey! You want to play, Templeton?
Templeton: For so many reasons, no. See, I don't play. I gnaw, I spy, I eat, I hide. Me in a nutshell.
Wilbur: Couldn't you just stay and chat?
Templeton: Chat? Let me see. Gnaw, spy, eat, hide. Nope, "chat" ain't on the list.
Templeton: The rat is handsome. Tonight I dream of slop!
