Once Upon a Forest (1993) Poster

Elisabeth Moss: Michelle


  • Michelle : [speaking really fast]  Guess what? You'll never guess what, I'll betcha! Uncle Cornelius said I could go with you on your ramble today, but I'll betcha he's forgotten all about it, & I'll never, EVER get to see what the big surprise is!

    [inhales deeply] 

    Michelle : What took you so long?

    Abigail : My dad!

    Edgar : My mother!

    Russell : No breakfast!

  • Michelle : Uncle Cornelius, your mouth is hanging open!

  • Edgar : [tapping a road with his foot]  This ground isn't normal. It's hard.

    Michelle : [sniffing the road]  And it smells kind of funny!

  • Michelle : Uncle Cornelius, why do you look so sad?

    Cornelius : My goodness!

    The Furlings : Michelle!

    Cornelius : Oh, Michelle! You're all right!

    Michelle : Of course, I am! I just had...


    Michelle : ... a long nap!

  • Michelle : What's that?

    Cornelius : Great Honk!

    [sees the Flapper-Wing-A-Ma-Thing] 

    Cornelius : My Flapper-Wing-A-Ma-Thing! But how did you get it here?

    Abigail : We built it.

    Russell : And we flew it!

    Cornelius : Marvelous! Magnificent! Stupendous! You three have changed so much these past few days, I hardly recognize you.


    Cornelius : You're no longer my Furlings. You've grown up.

  • Michelle : Look, Uncle Cornelius! All the mommies & daddies are coming back!

    Cornelius : Not all of them, my dear. I'll never be able to replace your mummy & daddy, but I'll do my best.

    [Michelle sniffles] 

    Michelle : I guess nothing will ever be the same again, will it, Uncle Cornelius?

    Cornelius : Well, my dear, if we all work as hard to save Dapplewood as your three friends worked to save you, it will.

  • Cornelius : Well, Furlings, there are times when we must learn to accept... setbacks.

    Michelle : Looks like one of those times, doesn't it?

  • Abigail : I can hardly see him behind his papers. He must be working on an experiment.

    Edgar : Good. Maybe he won't notice we're late.

    Michelle : I bet he's working on the big surprise, I'll betcha!

    Russell : Oh, I LOVE surprises! Let's have a look!

  • Edgar : Come on, we'd better hurry!

    Michelle : If Uncle Cornelius asks, tell him it isn't MY fault you're late!

  • Michelle : Uncle Cornelius, what's "ru-rumertism"?

    Cornelius : Rheumatism, Michelle.

    [his back snaps] 

  • Cornelius : Russell, you are one lucky hedgehog. It's far too rare for a Furling to survive an encounter with... with...

    Michelle : A monster?

    Cornelius : That is a good name for it.

  • Cornelius : Oh dear heavens, not here.

    Michelle : What happened? Where is everyone? MOMMY! DADDY!

    Cornelius : Michelle!

    [to Furlings] 

    Cornelius : We must stop her! It's not safe!
