Dialogue

Stork: (Landing on a cloud carrying a sack, places the sack down on the cloud and sitts down.) Oh, my my! Now let me see. Must be right around here somewhere... I hope. (Sack begins to fall through cloud.) Oh, watch it there. (Pulls sack back up onto cloud then pulls out a map and begins humming "Rock-a-bye Baby.") ...on the tree to-op. (Pulls sack back up onto the cloud again.) Where are we here? Oh here! (singing) Highway 61, four miles to the gas station, turn left. La da dee dah dah dee... (train whisle sounds) Ah! That must be it! Well, little fella, let's get going.

Timothy Q. Mouse: So, you like to pick on little guys, huh? Well, why don't you pick on me?!
Elephant Matriarch: [backs away in fear] No!

Timothy Q. Mouse: All we gotta do is build an act! Make ya a star! A headliner! Dumbo the great!
[fanfare plays as Dumbo hoists Timothy with his trunk]
Timothy Q. Mouse: Uh-oh. The great what?
[faltering fanfare as Dumbo lowers his trunk]

Timothy Q. Mouse: I am the voice of your subconscious mind. Your inspiration. Now, concentrate!
Ringmaster: [loud snore]
Timothy Q. Mouse: Remember? Your pyramid of elephants are standing in the ring, waitin' for a climax!
Ringmaster: [in his sleep] Climax...
Timothy Q. Mouse: You are now getting that climax.
Ringmaster: Climax...
Timothy Q. Mouse: How's the reception? Comin' through okay?
Ringmaster: [snore]
Timothy Q. Mouse: Good. Suddenly, from the sidelines, comes your climax.
Ringmaster: Climax...
Timothy Q. Mouse: Gallopin' across the arena.
Ringmaster: Arena...
Timothy Q. Mouse: He jumps from a springboard, to a platform. At the very pinnacle of your pyramid, he waves a flag, for a glorious finish!
Ringmaster: Finish...
Timothy Q. Mouse: And who is your climax? The little elephant with the big ears! The world's mightiest midget mastodon! DUMBO!!!
Ringmaster: [snore] What?
Timothy Q. Mouse: Dumbo...
Ringmaster: Dumbo...
Timothy Q. Mouse: [softer] Dumbo.
Ringmaster: Dumbo.
Timothy Q. Mouse: [almost inaudible] Dumbo.
Ringmaster: [awake] Dumbo! I got it! I got it!

[in the elephant car, all the elephants were bandaged]
Elephant Matriarch: Oh, I never thought I'd live to see the Big Top fall.
Elephant 1: Because of that Dumbo, I never can show my face there, again.
Giddy: Oh, look at my beautiful tail!
Elephant Matriarch: I'll just spank the daylights out of him! [groans]
Elephant 2: Oh, that won't be necessary, deary. They fixed him, good.
Elephant Matriarch: What do you mean?
Elephant 1: What did they do?
Giddy: Did they beat him?
Elephant 1: What is it, darling?
Giddy: Tell us.
Elephant Matriarch: Come, I demand to know!
Elephant 2: Oh, well, they've gone and made him....oh, dear, I just can't say it.
Elephant Matriarch: Out with it!
Elephant 2: Made him a clown.
Giddy: A clown?
Elephant 3: No.
Elephant 2: Yes.
Elephant Matriarch: Oh, the shame of it. Let us take the solemm vow. From now on, he is no longer an elephant.

Timothy Q. Mouse: [To Dumbo] Remember, you come of a proud race. Why, you're a... a pachyderm, and pachyderms don't cry.

Timothy Q. Mouse: [completely drunk while looking at the bubbles] Balloonies. [he notices a bubble with his reflection] Hiya, George! [he hugs the bubble]

[Jim Crow wakes Timothy in a tree]
Timothy Q. Mouse: Oh, those pink elephants.
Jim Crow: Oh! Pink elephans!
[other crows laugh]
Timothy Q. Mouse: What's so funny? What are you boys doin' down here, anyway?
Jim Crow: What are we doin' down here?! Well, hear him talk!

Jim Crow: Now, look here, Brother Rat...
Timothy Q. Mouse: "BROTHER RAT"?! Now listen! I ain't your brother and I ain't no rat!
Jim Crow: And I suppose you and no elephant ain't up in no tree either!

Timothy Q. Mouse: But I wonder how we ever got up in that tree, anyway. Now, let's see. Elephants can't climb trees, can they? Nah, nah, that's ridiculous. Could've jump up. Mm-mmm, it's too high.
Jim Crow: Hey there, son! Maybe y'all flew up!
Timothy Q. Mouse: Maybe we flew up. Yeah, maybe we— That's it! Dumbo! You flew! Boy, am I stupid! Why didn't I think of this before?! Your ears, just look at 'em, Dumbo! Why, they're perfect wings! The very things that held ya down are gonna carry you up and up and up! I can see it all now: "Dumbo! The ninth wonder of the univoise! The world's only flyin' elephant!"

Timothy Q. Mouse: [as Dumbo falls off the platform after the "magic" feather falls off] Dumbo! C'mon, fly! Open them ears! The magic feather was just a gag! You can fly! Honest, you can! Hurry, open them up! HURRY!
[at the last moment, Dumbo opens his ears and soars over the crowd]
Timothy Q. Mouse: Whee! We did it! We did it!
