Narrator

  • [start lines] This is a tale about an unprejudiced heart, and how it changed our valley forever. There was a time not so long ago when pigs were afforded no respect, except by other pigs. They lived their whole lives in a cruel and sunless world. In those days pigs believed that the sooner they grew large and fat, the sooner they'd be taken to Pig Paradise, a place so wonderful that no pig had ever thought to come back.
  • There are many perfectly nice cats in the world, but every barrel has its bad apples, and it is well to heed the old adage, "Beware the bad cat bearing a grudge."

Farmer Arthur Hoggett

  • If I had words to make a day for you
    I'd sing you a morning golden and true
    I would make this day last for all time
    Then fill the night deep in moonshine
  • That'll do pig. That'll do.

Ferdinand the duck

  • I suppose the life of an anorexic duck doesn't amount to much in the broad scheme of things, but, pig, I'm all I've got!
  • Christmas. Christmas dinner, yeah. Dinner means death. Death means carnage! [really freaking out] Christmas means carnage! [fly away] Christmas means carnage!

Duchess the Cat

  • Oh, do forgive me for scratching you, dear. I got a bit carried away. [chuckles] It's a cat thing.
  • Oh! I haven't upset you, have I?

Dialogue

Ferdinand: Look, there's something you should know.
Babe: Yes?
Ferdinand: Humans eat ducks!
Babe: Huh? I beg your pardon?
Ferdinand: Ah, most ducks would like to forget it, but the fact is that humans like to eat plump, attractive ducks.
Babe: Ohhh, I don't think so. Not the Boss, not the Boss's wife.
Ferdinand: Oh, come on. Humans don't eat cats - why?
Babe: Well, they're...
Ferdinand: They're indispensable: they catch mice. Humans don't eat roosters - why? They make eggs with the hens and wake everyone up in the morning.
Babe: Right.
Ferdinand: I tried it with the hens: it didn't work. So I turned to crowing, and lo! I discover my gift. But no sooner do I become indispensable than they bring in a machine to do the job. Ohhhh-oh-oh, the treachery of it - a mechanical rooster!

Rex: [listen] Until your find his feet.
Puppy: But, Mom, he'll wet the bed!
Fly: [to Babe] Nonsense! If you do want to do anythin', you'll go outside won't 'ya? Good boy!

Duchess: Feeling good about tomorrow, are you?
Babe: Mm-hmm. It should be all right, I think.
Duchess: You know, I probably shouldn't say this, but I'm not sure if you realize how much the other animals are laughing at you.
Babe: Why would they do that?
Duchess: Well, they say you've forgotten that you're a pig! Isn't that silly? They say you don't even know what pigs are for.
Babe: What do you mean?
Duchess: You know, why pigs are here.
Babe: Why are any of us here?
Duchess: Well, the cows are here to be milked. The dogs are here to help the Boss's husband with the sheep. I am here to be beautiful and affectionate to the Boss.
Babe: Yes?
Duchess: The fact is that pigs don't have a purpose. Just like ducks don't have a purpose.
Babe: I don't--
Duchess: Alright, for your sake, I'll be blunt. Why do the Bosses keep ducks? To eat them. So why do the Bosses keep a pig? The fact is animals who don't have a purpose really do have a purpose. The Bosses have to eat. It's probably the most noble purpose of all when you come to think about it.
Babe: They eat ... pigs?
Duchess: Pork they call it. Or bacon. They only call them pigs when they're alive.
Babe: But I'm a sheep pig.
Duchess: [chuckles] Oh, the Boss's husband is just playing a little game with you. Believe me, sooner or later every pig gets eaten. That's the way the world works. Oh! I haven't upset you, have I?

Narrator: [after Babe has performed in the sheepdog trial] And though every single human in the stands or in the commentary boxes was at a complete loss for words, the man who in his life had uttered fewer words than any of them knew exactly what to say.
Farmer Hoggett: [to Babe - end lines] That'll do, pig. That'll do.

Rex: You and I are descended from the great sheepdogs. We carry the bloodline of the ancient Bahou. We stand for something! And today I watched in shame as all that was betrayed.
Fly: Rex, he's just a little pig.
Rex: All the greater the insult!

Narrator: Fly decided to speak very slowly. For it was a cold fact of nature that sheep were stupid and no one would ever persuade her otherwise.
Fly: [struggling] Please. Please. Would you be ... so kind as to tell me what happened?
Sheep: Quiet.
Fly: Please. Tell me what happened this morning.
Narrator: The sheep decided to speak very slowly. For it was a cold fact of nature that wolves were ignorant and nothing would convince them otherwise.
Sheep: Babe came! He saved us! The wolves killed Maa! But Babe drove the wolves away!
Fly: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you all very much!
Sheep: Pleasure... talkin'... to 'ya.

From BibleWiki


used of children generally (Matt. 11:25; 21:16; Luke 10:21; Rom. 2:20). It is used also of those who are weak in Christian faith and knowledge (1 Cor. 3:1; Heb. 5:13; 1 Pet. 2:2). In Isa. 3:4 the word "babes" refers to a succession of weak and wicked princes who reigned over Judah from the death of Josiah downward to the destruction of Jerusalem.

Figure A

A girl (as seen in Figure A) is a human being that was born with a testosterone deficiency. To many gamers, girls are a rare and elusive sight. Most males lust after girls (though some have developed an immunity) and would do anything to have a meaningful relationship with one, or at the very least, get her to post pix.

Girls use their feminine wiles to gain control over men. However, once a girl has control over a man, she'll do nothing but torture him. There is a growing concern that girls may, in fact, be controlled by some sort of cosmic entity with really high HP. It's already been proven that their constant mood swings can only be predicted with the phases of the moon.

Girls often use their healthy tan skin and bleached blonde hair as part of their evil plan to entice men. This evidence supports the theory that they are actually servants of the Wicked Day Star.

Oh, they also have magical powers.

Girl Gamers

A girl (as seen on TV!)

Some testerone deficient humans manage to escape the Wicked Day Star and venture to the safety of the indoors. These girls, safe from the harmful rays, will then discover the true meaning to life. They become gamers.

The elusive Girl Gamer is sought after by many and appreciated by all. While any gamer will tell you that there's no more attractive attribute than gaming, they are appreciated for other reasons as well.

First of all, they add diversity to gaming culture. The community is flooded with pasty geeks to whom "Compassion" is nothing more than the name of a spell in some obscure Japanese RPG they imported.
The girl gamers compensate for their testerone deficiency by creating a ridiculous surplus of estrogen. This chemical causes their brain to function abnormally, and show a sometimes frightening level of "caring" towards other "people."

Secondly, the more girl gamers there are, the more diverse the target audience is. There are far too many boy-appealing games that focus on blood and guts and badassery (see Halo or Tekken) and not enough games that focus on empathy and compassion (see Harvest Moon or Nintendogs.)

The more profitable making games that are not male-centric becomes, the more diverse our gaming selection will become. So to all the girl gamers out there, Encyclopedia Gamia salutes you!

Girls in Games

Girls also play an important role in the storytelling process.

Video games are very much a male-dominated entertainment medium. And due to the interactive nature of that medium, most gamers want their avatar to be representative of themselves. As a result, very few games feature female leads. Though there has a been a recent trend in putting female characters in video games, this trend conveniently coincides with the new graphical advancements that allow for the realistic rendering of jubblies.

Often when girls do make it into games, they are given healing powers, and used as medics. This is typically to represent the mothering nature of women. If there's a female in your party, nine times out of ten she's a healer. Either that, or she carries a big sword, wears a metal thong, and looks like a lesbian.
