It's the most beautiful sight I've ever seen!
JUSTIN: Reveal thy name!
MR. AGES: Justin, you featherhead! Get your hands off me!
JUSTIN: Ok, ok, just a joke! I didn't mean any harm. The meeting's already in progress.
MR. AGES: What's this all about?
JUSTIN: Who, may I ask?
MR. AGES: Yes, yes, she can be trusted. This is no stranger. My dear,
may I present Justin, the Captain of the Guard.
Justin, Mrs. Brisby.
JUSTIN: Not... Mrs. Jonathan Brisby!
MR. AGES: Yes, the same.
JUSTIN: It is an honor and a privilege, milady.
MR. AGES: If we could dispense with the formalities...?
MRS. BRISBY: How beautiful...
MRS. BRISBY: Oh! Er... the lights! They're quite lovely.
JUSTIN: Yes, they are. We've had electricity for four years now.
MR. AGES: Five.
MRS. BRISBY: Jonathan often spoke of electricity.
JUSTIN: But you see, our shame is that we're stealing it from Farmer Fitzgibbons.
MRS. BRISBY: Stealing?
MR. AGES: All of that is going to change.
JUSTIN: He means we're working on a Plan.
I mean, that we have a Plan and this stealing will stop.
Now... Oh yes. Why did you send for me?
JUSTIN: It's Jenner. He's at it again.
MR. AGES: Hm. There blows an ill wind.
JUSTIN: He's before the Council now. This time he's attacking Nicodemus openly.
MR. AGES: And the Plan, no doubt.
JUSTIN: Nothing will come of it. It'll pass.
MR. AGES: Beware, boy, he's dangerous.
Jenner will be the undoing of the Rats of NIMH.
MRS. BRISBY: I'm sorry to come here at such a bad time. I suppose...
sweet lady, you are welcome here.
We tend to take ourselves a bit too seriously.
JENNER: The Plan is nothing but folly! A doddering old fool's fantasy! Nicodemus would have us destroy this colony only to lead us to starvation in some wilderness!
JUSTIN: Ahem. Good ol' Jenner.
MR. AGES: Wait. Listen.
COUNCILMAN 1: Moving to Thorn Valley is a good plan!
JENNER: Fie! We have everything we need right here!
COUNCILMAN 2: You mean we steal everything we need.
JUSTIN: Well come on, you suspicious old goat!
COUNCILMAN 3: If we stay here, humans are bound to discover us. They'd destroy us on the spot!
COUNCILMAN 1: I agree!
COUNCILMAN 2: He's right. We'll be killed.
JENNER: Not if we got them first!
COUNCILMAN 3: He means war!
RAT 2: We'd be outnumbered.
There are too many of them.
JENNER: Hear me! The Thorn Valley Plan is the aspiration of idiots and dreamers! We... We were just talking about you.
JUSTIN: That's refreshing, Jenner Usually you're screaming about us.
JENNER: Who is that?
You know the rules: there are no visitors allowed here.
JUSTIN: May I present Mrs. Jonathan Brisby.
SULLIVAN: Jonathan Brisby is dead!
JENNER: She's not one of us. What's the meaning of this?
RAT 2: Send her away.
RAT 3: Let's get back to business!
MR. AGES: Wait, wait! She has been to see the Great Owl! He has told her that we could move the Brisby home to safety.
JUSTIN: Her home was Jonathan's home.
SULLIVAN: We have urgent problems of our own. Let the lower creatures fend for themselves!
COUNCIL PRESIDENT: Order, order!
JENNER: Wait, my friend. I smell an opportunity.
JENNER: Manoeuvers of this nature are dangerous. Accidents could happen...
COUNCIL PRESIDENT: Jenner?
JENNER: I'll explain later.
JENNER: Mrs. Brisby! A thousand pardons, my dear! Forgive the ill temper of my colleague. It would be an honor to assist Jonathan's widow in any way. We are but your humble servants.
MRS. BRISBY: Thank-you.
RAT 4: I second the motion.
RAT 5: Hear hear!
COUNCIL PRESIDENT: Motion has been moved and seconded. Those in favor make a show of hands.
MR. AGES: He's up to something... Take Mrs. Brisby to the library. We'll approach Nicodemus when the meeting's over.
COUNCIL PRESIDENT: Motion carried.
JEREMY: Ok now, wait a minute this isn't what you think.
AUNTIE SHREW: You don't understand what I'm doing here! Think you can come snooping about looting and pilfering, just when everyone's away?
JEREMY: Well uh... Let me explain about... Oh! What a lovely hat you're wearing!
AUNTIE SHREW: Don't you sweettalk me! I know you're in league with those awful rats!
JEREMY: Rats? Um... what rats?
AUNTIE SHREW: Hoodlums, the lot of you!
JEREMY: Um... why did you say rats?
AUNTIE SHREW: You think the world owes you a living, right?
AUNTIE SHREW: Wrong!
JEREMY: Wrong! Look, nice lady, you're making a mistake!
AUNTIE SHREW: The sooner you delinquents learn that you must earn your own way...
JEREMY: Wait! Wait, can't we uh... Can't we talk this over?
AUNTIE SHREW: ...the sooner, the better.
JEREMY: You can't leave me like this! There's a ca... There's a ca... He's a very big... and he might... and he might... mlfffp!
AUNTIE SHREW: Good! Good riddance! Teresa! Martin! That's the least you deserve.
AUNTIE SHREW: There you are! Keep an eye on this hooligan.
Make sure he doesn't get away until I can fetch help.
And as for you, you black buzzard. I wouldn't try anything! I shall return!
MARTIN: Well, I guess we'd better untie him.
TERESA: But Martin...
MARTIN: Hey, Mom helped a crow in the field the day before yesterday...
CYNTHIA: He's trying to talk!
TERESA: He looks like a loony.
MARTIN: He even took her to see the the Great Owl!
MARTIN: This could be the same crow!
JEREMY: That's me all... Whew! I am the crow. Untie me quick, I can't stand it!
TERESA: What are you doing here?
JEREMY: Oh, it's a good question, but don't ask. The legs... the legs!
CYNTHIA: Aw, the poor turkey fell down.
JEREMY: I'm not a turkey! Your mother...
TERESA: Where's our mother!
MARTIN: You big buzzard, where's our mother?
TERESA: What have you done with her?
MARTIN: You'd better tell me or I'll tie you back up again!
JEREMY: The rosebush! To see the rats!
