    • Jamie: (Lifts a barrel) Vicki this weighs a ton, would you give me a hand?
      Vicki: Give you a hand. (Claps hands)
      Jamie: Thanks.
      Harriet: Hi.
      Jamie: Oh, hi Harriet. How's your bird?
      Harriet: I've been losing my voice trying to teach Waldo to talk. I think he's defective.
      Jamie: Maybe Vicki can find out why he won't talk. She can understand animals.
      Vicki: I'm a "nuts and bolts" Doctor Doolittle.
      Harriet: What do you mean she can understand animals? That's ridiculous.
      Jamie: Just trust me. Make him say somethng, go ahead.
      Harriet: Waldo, say something.
      Waldo: (Squawks twice)
      Harriet: Come on you fraud, say something.
      Waldo: (Squawks twice)
      Harriet: Open that beak and say something!
      Waldo: (Squawks twice loudly)
      Harriet: See that's all he says! (Squawks twice) If you can understand animals, what does that mean?
      Vicki: It means, "But Harriet, But Harriet". He can't get in a word edgewise.
      Jamie: Just like the rest of us.
      Harriet: You mean he'll talk if I just shut up?
      Waldo: (Squawks) Works for me, works for me!
      Harriet: Vicki, you're a genius!
      Jamie: Yeah and I figured a way to use Vicki's talents and make some money. You're lookin' at Doctor Vicki Doolittle, the world's greatest animal psychologist!
      Vicki: (In Waldo's voice) Works for me, works for me!

    • Harriet: (After Vicki blows the leaves away) That was so weird! I just got caught in a leaf storm.
      Jamie: Well, weird attracts weird. Who's your feathered friend Harriet?
      Harriet: Oh, well this is my new parrot Waldo.
      Jamie: Does he talk?
      Harriet: Well, he hasn't said anything yet. Waldo want a cracker?
      Waldo: (Squawks)
      Harriet: Waldo want some birdseed?
      Waldo: (Squawks twice)
      Harriet: Dumb bird!
      Jamie: If he's so dumb, then why'd you buy him?
      Harriet: Because we're color coordinated!
      Jamie: (To Vicki) How are we going to tell them apart?
      Vicki: The quiet one has feathers.
