Fantastic Mr. Fox


Mr. Fox:
[addressing the others from atop a pile of bricks] In a way, I'm almost glad that flood interrupted us because I don't like the toast I was giving. I'm gonna start over.

[Mr. Fox switches on his radio. "Le Grand Choral" plays. He gestures as if holding a wine glass]

Mr. Fox:
When I look down this table, with the exquisite feast set before us, I see: two terrific lawyers, a skilled pediatrician, a wonderful chef, a savvy real estate agent, an excellent tailor, a crack accountant, a gifted musician, pretty good minnow fisherman, and possibly the best landscape painter working on the scene today. Maybe a few of you might even read my column from time to time, Who knows? I tend to doubt it.

[brief pause]

Mr. Fox:

[He approaches their groups as he speaks]

Mr. Fox:
Wild animals, with true natures and pure talents. Wild animals with scientific-sounding Latin names that mean something about our DNA. Wild animals each with his own strengths and weaknesses due to his or her species.

[re-ascends the brick pile]

Mr. Fox:
Anyway, I think it may very well be all the beautiful differences among us that might just give us the tiniest glimmer of a chance of saving my nephew, and letting me make it up to you for getting us into this, this crazy... whatever it is. I don't know. It's just a thought. Thank you for listening. Cheers, everyone.

[mimics draining the imaginary glass and smashing it to the floor]

Lets eat!

[All eyes turn to Kylie]

What? I was just playin' along with the bit he was doing...
