  • Quotes

    • Lady Elaine Fairchild: People like you better if you win.
      Handyman Negri: Who told you that?

    • Handyman Negri: Do you always have to win everything Lady Elaine?
      Lady Elaine Fairchild: Of course!

    • Daniel Tiger: So if somebody calls, and it's the wrong number, you say you're sorry?
      Miss Paulifficate: That's right, Daniel.
      Daniel Tiger: But why do you say you're sorry if it's not your fault?
      Miss Paulifficate: Oh, you know, I really don't know! Does anyone have an idea?
      Prince Tuesday: Maybe you're sorry for yourself because you had to answer the phone, and you were playing!
      Ana Platypus: Or maybe you were wishing that somebody special would call, and then it wasn't your friend after all.

    • King Friday XIII: I should like to start a drawing contest.
      Harriet Elizabeth Cow: A drawing contest?
      King Friday XIII: Uh, yes. Do you like the idea?
      Harriet Elizabeth Cow: Well, not usually, King Friday.
      King Friday XIII: What do you mean?
      Harriet Elizabeth Cow: Because everyone has different talents and everyone's drawings are different.
      King Friday XIII: So?
      Harriet Elizabeth Cow: So, art contests are impossible to judge!

    • Mister Rogers: Do you like to draw with crayons? I do. I'm not very good at it, but that's not important. It's just the fun of doing it.
