Horton Hears a Who! (2008) Poster

Jim Carrey: Horton



  • Horton : A person's a person, no matter how small.

  • Horton : I meant what I said and I said what I meant. An elephant's faithful one hundred percent.

  • The Mayor of Who-ville : I have 96 daughters and 1 son.

    Horton : [laughing]  Whoa! Busy guy.

  • Horton : This entire jungle is a house of death!

  • Horton : I meant what I said, and I said what I meant.

    Morton : [sighs]  An elephant's faithful one hundred percent.

    Horton : That's my code, my motto.

  • Councilman : This is the chairman...

    Horton : Idiot! You're finished in this town! Is that understood? Finished! You Boob!

    [brief pause while the chairman splutters] 

    Horton : I'm just joking.

    Councilman : Eh heh, good one.

    The Mayor of Who-ville : Horton, I'd like you to meet my wife, Sally.

    Sally O'Malley : You exist! This means my husband isn't crazy. Hooray!

    The Mayor of Who-ville : And these are some of my daughters, Hildy, Helga, Hula, Heidi, and Hedy.

    Hedy , Heidi , Hildy , Helga : Hi!

    The Mayor of Who-ville : And this is Miss Yelp, my loyal assistant. And this is Dr. Larue.

    Dr. Mary Lou Larue : You saved us!

    The Mayor of Who-ville : And Burt from Accounting, and Mrs. McGillicuddy. And Mr. FarFloogin of the Cloogin FarFloogins. And the old man in the bathtub.

    Sally O'Malley : Honey, let's not overwhelm the poor guy, he's never gonna remember all these names.

    Horton : Well, I'll try my best: Sally, Chairman, Hildy, Helga, Hula, Heidi, and Hedy. Miss Yelp. Dr. Larue, Burt from accounting, Mrs. McGillicuddy, Mr. FarFloogin of the Cloogin FarFloogins. And wasn't there an old guy in a shower?

    The Mayor of Who-ville : Mmm, Bathtub.

    Horton : [a bit mad he didn't remember the name]  Oh, Yeah!

  • Horton : [in imitation of cheaply dubbed anime]  I'll make monkeys out of these monkeys!

  • Horton : There's a tiny person on that speck that needs my help!

  • Morton : Horton, the kangaroo has sent Vlad!

    Horton : Vlad? Vlad, Vlad... I know two Vlads. There's the bad Vlad... And then there's bunny Vlad, the one that makes cookies!

    Morton : ...Yeah, Horton, she's sending you a bunny with cookies. I think it's safe to say it's the bad Vlad.

    Horton : Yeah, good call.

  • Horton : [thanking people]  And Morton, for being the only one who stood by me. Well not right by me; he hid in the bushes sending me good thoughts. He's small.

    Morton : Dude, you are a warrior poet.

  • Horton : We must become invisible, travel silently, for there are forces that would seek to destroy us.

  • Horton : Ahaha! To the top of Mount Nool, as fast as lightning, away I go!

  • Horton : All right, I gotta get this speck up to the top of Mount Nool A.S.A.P, whatever that means, probably 'act swiftly, awesome pachyderm'! I mean, how hard can that be?

  • Horton : This looks kinda... precarious. Well nothing to worry, obviously when they build a bridge like this they take into account that elephants will be crossing here.

  • Horton : Sorry, this is where we get off.

    [slingshots Bad Vlad off tree] 

    Horton : Cool line, usually I can't think of those things until later.

  • Horton : I will make monkeys of these monkeys, for it is their destiny!

  • Horton : [In a deep voice as he's hit with a Wickersham banana bomb]  Whoa! I can feel the diplomatic processes beginning to break down!

  • Horton : We're a club. We're a group. We can take a vote on the issues. We can be a secret society, and no one else can join, unless they wear a funny hat!

  • The Mayor of Who-ville : Listen, Horton, I've gotta go. Apparently there's a problem with a giant meatball.

    Horton : You just take care of that meatball sir and leave the freaking out to me.

  • Kangaroo : What do you think you're doing?

    Tommy : Oh, you guys with worlds are in trouble!

    Kangaroo : Have you forgotten what we've discussed?

    Horton : Oh no, I'm an elephant and elephants never forget, it's a curse really! I remember, I was on my head and you said hmm and I looked up and you said ,what are you doing?, and I said the thing about the speck, then you pulled my ears and you poked me in the forehead...

    Kangaroo : Horton!

    Horton : Well you did.

  • Horton : [looking down the canyon]  It's just a straight plummet to certain death.

  • Horton : I have to think light. I'm light as a feather. I am light as a feather.

    [a feather lands on the bridge and the plank gives way] 

    Horton : Heavy feather.

  • Horton : [over intercom]  Is everything okay down there?

    The Mayor of Who-ville : [in shock]  Uh... I don't know. You tell me. You're the one holding the speck.

  • [Horton is being roped while the people of WhoVille make noise to be heard] 

    Horton : Listen, *please*! It's the most beautiful thing ever!

    Yummo Wickersham : I don't hear nothin'.

  • Horton : Alright, I need to get this clover to the top of Mount Nool A.S.A.P.whatever that means. Probably, Act Swiftly, Awesome Pachyderm.

    [He sees a rope bridge over a deadly chasam] 

    Horton : . It's a sheer drop to certain death.
