Owl: I didn't sneeze.
Eeyore: Oh, you did, Owl.

Pooh: Well, you can't know it without something haven't been sneezed.
Owl: As I was saying, first: issue a reward...
Pooh: [to Eeyore] He's doing it again. You must be catching a cold.
Eeyore: [gloomily] I'll probably catch it too.
Owl: [frustrated] No, no, no! I'm not catching a cold! The word is issue, not ah-choo! And ah-choo isn't even a word! It's just some sort of sneezy sound, like Ah-choo!.

Owl: Oh!

Owl: [Flies out of the pit to Piglet] Yes, Piglet. Through a dark wood fraught with peril, on a mission of life or death. It is a task of great complexity, but I have full confidence that you shall return victorious and rescue us from the abyss. Go forth, Piglet, and we shall await your return, for weeks if necessary.
[Flies back down, as everyone looks astonished]

Owl: What?
Rabbit: I can't believe... how wonderful that speech was!
Pooh: I can't, either.
Eeyore: Moved me to tears.

Tigger: Tigger Two? I thought the Backson got you. As soon as we get out of here, we're gonna show that Backson what Tiggers are made of, aren't we?

Tigger: What's Donkey Boy saying?
Eeyore: [releasing the root] I said, "Ouch."
[realizing he's released the root, he and the others fall into the gorge]

Eeyore: It isn't mine. Then again, few things are.

Eeyore: Not much of a house. Just right for not much of a donkey.

Eeyore: End of the road... nothing to do... and no hope of things getting better. Sounds like Saturday night at my house.

[repeated line]

Eeyore: My favorite size.

Eeyore: Tigger, I'd be happy to tell you my secret for winning at Poohsticks.
Tigger: [eagerly] Uh, you would?
Eeyore: It's very easy. You just have to let your stick drop in a twitchy sort of way.

[twitches, then bounces]
Tigger: Hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!
[we hear a crash]
Eeyore: Bounced again.

Eeyore: [as he floats in the river] Don't pay any attention to me. Nobody ever does.

Pooh: Fishing?
Eeyore: Wrong.
Roo: Going for a sail?
Eeyore: Wrong again.

Pooh: No.
Eeyore: Neither can I.
Pooh: Oh. Well, many happy returns of the day, Eeyore.
Eeyore: Thank you, Pooh. But we can't all, and some of us don't.
Pooh: Can't all what?
Eeyore: No gaiety, no song and dance, no "Here We Go 'Round the Mulberry Bush". But don't worry about me, Pooh. Go and enjoy yourself. I'll stay here and be miserable, with no presents, no cake, no candles.
Pooh: Eeyore, wait right here.


The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977)

Winnie the Pooh: Good morning, Christopher Robin.
Christopher Robin: Oh, good morning, Winnie the Pooh.

Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968)
Eeyore: W-O-L, that spells owl.
Owl: Bless my soul, so it does.

Chistopher Robin: [Looks at Owl's demolished house] What a pity. Owl, I don't think we'll ever be able to fix it.
Eeyore: If you ask me, when a house looks like that, it's time to find another one.
Chistopher Robin: That's a very good idea, Eeyore.
Eeyore: Might take a day or two, but I'll find a new one.

Narrator: So the Hundred Acre Wood got floodier and floodier. But the water couldn't come up to Christopher Robin's house, so that's where everyone was gathered. It was a time of great excitement, but in the midst of all the excitement, Eeyore stubbornly stuck to his task of house hunting for Owl.
Eeyore: There's one. Cozy cottage. Nice location.
[House sinks]
