- Put the chick down, Dag!
- HEY!!! [Lord of the Hoof horses stopped dancing, one goes off the stage] Have you all lost your mind?! It's daylight! The farmer's gonna be back! This is SO off limits!
- [after seeing the farmer come in after dancing with Wild Mike on stage] Uh, moo?
- [After pushing Snotty Boy off his bed] That's called boy tipping! HA-HA-HA!!!
- [After Miles kicks the farmer the third time] Will you... stop... doing... that?! [Miles: Well, unless you get him a blindfold, I'm gonna kick him.] Okay, let's go.
- Otis, a strong man stands up for himself. A stronger man stands up for others.
- I got a pulse. Wheeee!
- Freddy the Ferret: Yeah, hi. Hey, there. Having a good day? So, uh, this was Otis' idea?
- Peck the Rooster: Oh, yeah. We're like the second line of defense. We see or hear anything suspicious, and I just signal Otis with a crow. Oh, oh. And I've really been working on it. Listen. [he clears his throat, then crows weakly for much longer, then squeaks] Well, you you know, in the moment, it'll be strong. But for now, we just stand watch.
- Freddy: Yeah, watch.
- Dag the Coyote: See you around. [laughs] Get it, "round"? You're fat.
- Otis: Chicken farm!
- Pip: Oh, I get it. We can't yell "tree" or "rock", but you get to yell "chicken farm".
- Pizza Delivery Guy: Dude, I got an arm!
- Mrs. Beady: Randall, there is a cow outside.
- Mr. Beady: This is a cow farm. You're going to find cows outside.
- Otis: That's what you call boy tipping!
- Mrs. Beady: Nathan Randall the third, I am not crazy. I am medicated for a chemical imbalance. Don't you sit there and think that I am crazy.
- Ben: Grey market goods. As if I needed to say it again, the purchase of human articles from the gopher underground is strictly prohibited.
- Otis: [Otis cellphone] Hello, motto!
- [start to play the Motorola tune, Otis coyly answers]
- Gopher: Hey, Otis! [giggles] Listen, I think your Nikes are...
- Otis: [whispering] Yeah. This, really isn't the best time...
- Daisy: ["feels" her stomach] Oh, my... I think, the baby's coming!
- Otis: WHAT?!
- Daisy: [giggles] I made you jump.
- Otis: Oh, thank you. Very much. I swallowed my cud!
- Daisy: [laughs, then looks up at the stars] It's so... beautiful...
- Otis: My cud?
- Pig: [watching Daisy giving birth] Man, that looks like it hurts.
- Duke: Oh, that's very profound, "Insight Man".
- Pig: Well, excuse me for being a pig!
- Vision Freddy: Come and get it! [dings the triangle]
- [Otis and the Jersey Cows are driving recklessly in a car]
- Eddy: Put crowns on our heads, cause we are the kings! [turns on the radio, the song "You Got to Move" plays. The cows start banging their heads, Eddy honks the car horn]
- Cows: [singing] You got to MOO!
You got to MOO!
You got to MOO!
You got to MOO!
- Ben: Put the hen down, Dag!
- Dag the Coyote: Sure Ben. Whatever you say. Were just doing a little courting, that's all! You know how much we like the hens! [laughs evilly]
- Pip: [jumps on a coyote's back] Yoo hoo! [Coyote growls] You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to go right in your ear! [jumps in the coyote's ear]
- Coyote: [screams] There's a mouse in my ear, there's a mouse in my ear!
- Dag: Well, look at the hero! You thought you could come into my den! Now, why don't you lay there and watch while we eat your friends! [laughs evilly]
- Otis: Remember me? I'm Ben's kid. [threatens to punch Dag. Dag starts to quiver, and Otis does not punch him, but gets in his face] Never... come... back. [Dag whimpers while nodding his head. Otis drops Dag] Pip?
- Pip: Eh, better go with the iron.
- [Otis takes a iron golf club and whacks Dag with it. Dag goes flying out of the junkyard while howling]
