[taking his hat off and speaking into it]
Seymour S. Sassafras (Danny Kaye): They’ve never heard of Peter Cottontail! 
Sassafras’s Hat: They’ve never heard of Peter Cottontail? 

Colonel Wellington B. Bunny (Danny Kaye): [seeing a photo of Peter Cottontail while thumbing through other photos of prospective Chief Easter Bunnies] Wait! Peter Cottontail! Just a moment, now here’s a likely candidate. 
Colonel Bunny’s Assistant (Paul Frees): Well, I really don’t think Cottontail’s your man, sir. I mean, he is boastful, he has no sense of responsibility, and sometimes – sometimes, he fibs. 
Colonel Wellington B. Bunny (Danny Kaye): Oh, well, I know he’s not perfect, but he’s got *real* spunk and ingenuity. Reminds me of me when I was his age. 

Peter Cottontail (Casey Kasem): But – I-I never dreamed I’d get to be Chief Easter Bunny! 
[his ear droops]
Colonel Wellington B. Bunny (Danny Kaye): Peter, you’re telling a fib. And every time you tell a fib, your left ear droops. 
Peter Cottontail (Casey Kasem): Oh… 
[chuckles nervously]
Peter Cottontail (Casey Kasem): well, I – guess I did think about the job once or twice.

[his ear springs straight up]
Colonel Wellington B. Bunny (Danny Kaye): Peter… good heavens, Peter, my boy, you’ve got to shape up and reform if you want to be Chief Easter Bunny. 

Seymour S. Sassafras (Danny Kaye): [seeing Peter sleeping on his foot] Uh, beg pardon, Peter. 
Peter Cottontail (Casey Kasem): [awakening] Huh? 
Seymour S. Sassafras (Danny Kaye): You’re sleeping on my big toe. You really must have been tuckered out to use a big toe as a pillow. 
Peter Cottontail (Casey Kasem): Gee… I’m sorry, Mr. Sassafras. 
Seymour S. Sassafras (Danny Kaye): [chuckles] Well, that’s all right. It’s my pleasure, Peter. Rather, my big toe’s pleasure. 

Seymour S. Sassafras (Danny Kaye): I’m a peddler by trade; by trade, and by golly, by golly, by golly, I deal in magic, and moonbeams, and pretty, pretty colors. Ohhhhh, yes. I could sell you the most perfect pink, or the most blissful blue, or a simply euphoric yellow. 

Peter Cottontail (Casey Kasem): George Washington always had green eggs. Why, they were traditional at Mount Vernon, when he chopped down the uh – lime tree?
[his ear droops
