Funny: Charlotte's Web
  • When trying to find a new word for Charlotte's web.
    Lamb: How about "Pig Supreme"?
    Charlotte: No good. It sounds like a rich dessert.
    Goose: How about terrific, terrific, terrific?
    Charlotte: Cut that down to one terrific and it will do nicely. I think terrific might impress Zuckerman.
    Wilbur: But Charlotte, I'm not terrific.
    Charlotte: You're terrific as far as I am concerned. Does anybody know how to spell it?
    Charlotte: What kind of an acrobat do you think I am? It would take me all night to write a word like that into my web.
    Ram: I would advise you not to consult geese in matters of spelling. The word is spelled T-E-R-R-I-F-I-C.
    Goose: (annoyed) I still think it's prettier spelled T double-E double-R double-I double-R...
    Charlotte: Please! Let me spell it my way.
  • Wilbur attempts to make a web by tying a fairly short piece of string on his tail and jumping off a mound.
  • Henry Fussy putting Wilbur down just for him to run into things in the house.
