Templeton: This web thing is really paying off.
Farmer: Mr. Zuckerman!
Farmer: There it is, side to side, right in the same place. "Terrific."
Farmer: It was the most amazing thing! Last time we had hundreds of people. This time it's going to be thousands!
Wife: It says "terrific" just as clear as day. T-E-double-R-l-F-l-C. I mean, can you imagine a spider being able to spell that word? I don't think I could spell that word till the 10th grade.
Wife: Fifty cents.
Farmer: Do you like that one, sir?
That's going to be $1.
Farmer: Gather 'round, folks! Remember, you saw it right here at Zuckerman's. And, before you leave, don't forget to take some of our berries home with you!
Cow: So, you think this might work?
Sheep: Dare I say it? He looks "terrific."
Gussy: Look at them all!
Gander: Yeah. Smile pretty. I wish geese had teeth.
Narrator: As summer ended, so did the excitement about the web. Charlotte needed to think of something special. Special enough to change the way people saw the world, or at least one pig in the world, anyway. The truth is, Charlotte feared she would never find a word that could do all that. And she had to hurry. Time was running out for her. But once a promise is made, it needs to be kept.
Farmer: Still no web, huh?
Farmer: Nope. I haven't seen one in, I'd say, at least a month.
Farmer: Funny how you get used to all those people being around the place. Kind of quiet without them, isn't it?
Farmer: I noticed the hinge pin's busted on the damper in the smokehouse. Do you want me to order a new one?
Farmer: Suppose you better. That's a special order. We’d better get a jump on that if were gonna smoke any ham before the holidays.
