BETH: Dear, a man came by today, from NIMH.
FARMER FITZGIBBONS: NIMH?
BETH: Yes, you know! The National Institute of Mental Health. He was asking if we had noticed
anything strange about the rats on the farm.
Well, I said "No, nothing unusual".
FARMER FITZGIBBONS: Beth, I have to get up early.
BETH: Oh, it gave me goosebumps to hear him carry on that way! Like the rats might have some horrible disease!
FARMER FITZGIBBONS: Night, Beth...
BETH: I told him you'd call him back.
AUNTIE SHREW: What did I tell you? Moving!
MRS. BRISBY: It can't be!
AUNTIE SHREW: It certainly can! I don't suppose you've packed!
MRS. BRISBY: What about Timmy? The chill in the air could kill him!
AUNTIE SHREW: Well child, that tractor surely will. For the last time, get your children out of here before it's too late! Run! The plow is here, run! It's Moving Day! Run!
The plow is here!
Run! Run! Get out! Brisby! Go get... Timothy!
MRS. BRISBY: Please! Take the children out of here!
CYNTHIA: Mommy, we can't leave Timmy!
MRS. BRISBY: Go with Auntie Shrew.
I've got to try to stop that thing!
AUNTIE SHREW: Wait! You're out of your mind! Brisby, come back! Brisby! Hang on! Hang on! Brisby! Come on! Come on!
FARMER FITZGIBBONS: Well of all the rotten luck fuel line's cut.
MRS. BRISBY: He'll come back tomorrow... I wish Jonathan were here.
AUNTIE SHREW: Well, he's not. Stop it!
MRS. BRISBY: What am I going to do?
AUNTIE SHREW: We'll think of something. Come on, let's get out of here. The Great Owl would know what to do about this. You must go see him.
MRS. BRISBY: Oh I couldn't do that. Owls eat mice!
AUNTIE SHREW: Well my child, show a little courage! We're fighting for Timmy's life!
NICODEMUS: Jonathan, your wife, I fear is in desperate trouble. A visit to the Great Owl may indeed be profitable. Go to the Owl then, Mrs. Brisby. Go there!
JEREMY: Nice evening huh?
I told you you'd love flying.
MRS. BRISBY: I don't know how I let you talk me into this!
JEREMY: Aw, don't thank me, Mrs. Briz.
When we get to the Great Owl
he'll know just what to do about everything!
MRS. BRISBY: Owls eat mice!
JEREMY: Um... only after dark...
JEREMY: That must be the Owl's tree over there. Hello? Hello? Anybody home? Well, the place looks deserted. I guess we'd better get outta here.
GREAT OWL: Step inside my house. Come inside, or go away.
MRS. BRISBY: Timothy... remember Timothy.
GREAT OWL: Why have you come?
MRS. BRISBY: Please forgive me for disturbing you but my son's life is in great danger. The plow has come early this year and...
GREAT OWL: Move your family.
MRS. BRISBY: Yes, I would move, but Timothy has pneumonia. He can't even get out of bed.
GREAT OWL: You must move it to a place where it will be safe from the plow.
MRS. BRISBY: Please,
there must be another way.
GREAT OWL: There is no other way. I must bid you good evening, Mrs...?
MRS. BRISBY: Mrs. Brisby.
GREAT OWL: Brisby? Mrs. Jonathan Brisby?
MRS. BRISBY: Why yes! He was my husband! But, how do you know about him?
GREAT OWL: That is not important. I will say this: his name is not unknown in these woods.
MRS. BRISBY: Please sir! I'll do anything to save Timmy. Anything.
GREAT OWL: There is a way. Go to the rats.
MRS. BRISBY: But I don't know any rats!
GREAT OWL: In the rosebush.
MRS. BRISBY: Oh yes, near the farmhouse.
GREAT OWL: Go there. Ask for Nicodemus.
MRS. BRISBY: Nicodemus? But how can they help?
GREAT OWL: They must move your house to the lee of the stone.
MRS. BRISBY: No rat could move my house! It's...
GREAT OWL: They have ways!
MRS. BRISBY: I don't understand but I will do as you say.
GREAT OWL: It is night. I must go. Remember, the lee of the stone.
JEREMY: What... what did he say?
MRS. BRISBY: He said to go to the rats.
JEREMY: Rats. What rats?
MRS. BRISBY: The lee of the stone...
