For some odd reason, Pooh is characterized as being an absolute jerk in the newspaper comic, saying really mean things to his "friends," and generally acting in a very self-centered manner, and sometimes it's not really clear if it's out of naivete or genuine malice. This leads to a lot of out-of-character moments, and they're pretty funny.
Pooh: You take yourself too seriously, Eeyore.
Eeyore: You mean I should learn to laugh at myself?
Pooh: Excuse me, but...you're sitting in my spot.
(Panel shows that Pooh and Piglet are in a very, VERY wide open space with plenty of space for Pooh to sit)
Pooh: Happy Birthday, Eeyore! We're having a birthday party for you this afternoon!
Eeyore: Oh no! Why do you do this to me, Pooh? You know how parties depress me. All that jollity and merriment.
Pooh: We know how you feel about birthday parties, Eeyore! That's why we didn't invite you!
Eeyore: How was my birthday party I wasn't invited to yesterday?
Pooh: We had a lovely time, Eeyore!
Eeyore: I really don't understand how a sensitive person like you can have a good time at a party. I've never gone to a party in my life that didn't turn out to be boring and depressing.
Pooh: That's funny, Eeyore, the parties you don't go to are a lot of fun.
Piglet: I think brains are more important than beauty.

Pooh: Can't you do anything right?

(Pooh finishes some exercises)
Pooh: Whew! Self-improvement is sure hard work, Piglet.
Piglet: You should have picked somebody who doesn't need so much improvement.
Owl: Pooh, I'm giving a speech at the Owl's Club tonight, and I need to keep track of how long I talk.
Pooh: I've got just the thing for you, Owl.
