-->'''Timothy:''' You ought to be ashamed of yourselves. A bunch of big guys like you, picking on a poor little orphan like him! Suppose you was torn away from your mother when you was just a baby. Nobody to tuck you in at nights. No warm, soft, caressing trunk to snuzzle inta. How would you like to be left out alone, in a cold, cruel, heartless world? And why? I ask ya, why?! Just because he's got those big ears, they called him a freak! A laughingstock at the circus! And when his mother tried to protect him, they threw her in the clink. And on top of that, they made him a clown! Socially, he's washed up! Oh but what's the use of talking to you cold-hearted birds? Go on ahead. Have your fun. Laugh at him! KICK HIM NOW THAT HE'S DOWN! GO ON!! ...We don't care.

** The most heartwrenching moment of the sequence is when Timothy sheds a single tear.

** The fates of unmanageable elephants back in those times and the very real possibility that Mrs. Jumbo knows this. If things hadn't worked out the way they did, these could have very easily been their last moments together.

* A minor, but important one: Timothy calls the crows out for ridiculing Dumbo, noting how Dumbo's been ostracized for his ears. During the speech, each crow sheds a tear. Being patterned after black stereotypes, they probably sympathize with Dumbo because they also know what discrimination is like.

* Before Dumbo's mother is locked away, everyone - the other elephants, the boys in the circus - laughs at and ridicule Dumbo for his ears. He's just a ''baby''. Plus the fact that he doesn't comprehend the jeering - being a baby, probably not even knowing what condescension and mocking and sadness is - and laughs along and wiggles his ears, and they laugh at him more, and just...agh.
