Once Upon a Forest (1993) Poster

Paige Gosney: Russell


  • 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!

  • Russell : [pushing the tiller of a reed boat]  I get to steer!

    Abigail : [pushing the tiller back]  Don't be silly, you'll sink us!

    Russell : [pushing back]  Will NOT! Give me a chance!

  • Abigail : This isn't a picnic! Here! Pack something useful!

    [Abigail tosses Russell a rope] 

    Russell : Boy, I've been working up an appetite!

  • Edgar : We're going to climb?

    Russell : We can't DIG our way up!

  • Abigail : You were right, Edgar. I was wrong. Thanks for coming to my rescue!


    Russell : What about me? I broke your fall!

    Abigail : You too, Russell!

  • Russell : Gee, & I thought meals were ALWAYS out of control at MY house!

  • Edgar : How are we gonna get anybody to help us find the herbs?

    Russell : Maybe these guys won't be so grouchy after they eat.

    Abigail : Well, we can't wait that long!

  • Russell : Wait a minute! I know how to get up there. We'll use Cornelius' Flapper-Wing-A-Ma-Thing.

    Edgar : Russell, good thinking! We'll FLY to the top of the cliff!

    Willy : You don't really mean "fly"?

    Waggs : You heard 'em, Willy. They'll flap their little paws & fly like birdies.


  • 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.

  • Russell : Good thing you're a slow climber!

  • Abigail : You'll find some more, Russell. That's never been a problem for you!

    Russell : That's true...

  • 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!

  • Cornelius : Russell, your mouth is hanging open!

    Russell : Oh, I want to fly it! PLEASE?

    Abigail : Don't be silly, you'll crash it!

    Cornelius : Correct, Abigail. It's far too delicate for Furlings.

    Abigail : Huh? I didn't mean me!

  • Russell : What's he squawking about?

    Edgar : Shhhh... someone's died.

    Russell : Oh...

  • Waggs : For all the good it'll do you, I'd like to see YOU get the lungwort! No one in Oakdale's ever been able to reach it! But I'll bet you three can!

    Russell : That's right! We've already got a plan, right, Edgar?

    Edgar : I don't know.

  • Russell : You've been leading long enough, now it's MY turn!

    Abigail : You probably don't even know where you're going!

    Russell : Maybe YOU don't know where you're going, but I do!

    [falls onto a road] 

  • Russell : I guess we wrecked the big surprise.

    Cornelius : No, you just wrecked months & months of work!

  • Russell : [whining]  Mom, they won't give me a chance for breakfast!

    Russell's Mother : [washing dishes]  Well, you'll just have to be quicker, Rollin!

    Russell : [annoyed]  I'm not Rollin, Mother! I'm Russell! RUSSELL!
