Zootopia Best Quotes
Chief Bogo: Life isn’t some cartoon musical where you sing a little song and all your insipid dreams magically come true. So let it go.
Nick Wilde: You know you love me.
Judy Hopps: [Sarcastically] Do I know that?
Judy Hopps: Yes, yes I do!
Nick Wilde: Everyone comes to Zootopia, thinking they could be anything they want. But you can’t. You can only be what you are. Sly fox. Dumb bunny.
Judy Hopps: I am not a dumb bunny.
Nick Wilde: And that is not wet cement.
Judy Hopps: Life’s a little bit messy. We all make mistakes. No matter what type of animal you are, change starts with you.
Judy Hopps: [searching for Nick on a small stone bridge over a ditch] Nick? Nick?
[leans over the edge, finding him sitting on a lawn chair below]
Judy Hopps: Oh Nick! Night howlers aren’t wolves! They’re toxic flowers. I think someone is targeting predators on purpose and making them go savage.
Nick Wilde: [Deadpan] Wow. Isn’t that interesting.
[Nick gets up and walks under the bridge, while Judy follows him]
Judy Hopps: Wait, uh, wait – listen! I – I know you’ll never forgive me! And I don’t blame you. I wouldn’t forgive me either. I was ignorant, and… irresponsible… and small-minded. But predators shouldn’t suffer because of my mistakes. I have to fix this.
[Her voice shakes]
Judy Hopps: But I can’t do it without you.
[Nick still refuses to turn around]
Judy Hopps: [Judy begins to cry] And… and after we’re done, you can hate me, and that’ll be fine, because I was a horrible friend, and I hurt you. And you… and you can walk away knowing you were right all along. I really am just a dumb bunny.
[Everything becomes silent, until Nick replays Judy’s words with her carrot pen]
Judy Hopps: [through carrot pen, unseen] “I really am just a dumb bunny.”
Judy Hopps: [Nick holds up the pen] “I really am just a dumb bunny.”
Nick Wilde: [Nick turns around] Don’t worry, Carrots. I’ll let you erase it… in forty-eight hours.
[Judy smiles at Nick, laughing and wiping away tears]
Nick Wilde: All right, get in here.
[Judy trods, exhausted by her emotional outpouring, toward Nick. She leans her head against him, and they hug]
Nick Wilde: Okay. Oh, you bunnies, you’re so emotional. There we go, deep breath… Are you… Are you just trying to steal the pen? Is that what this is?
[Judy, laughing, playfully tries to take the pen away from Nick]
Nick Wilde: You ARE standing on my tail, though… Off… Off… Off… Off… Off…
Judy Hopps: Oh, I’m sorry…
Nick Wilde: It’s called a hustle, sweetheart.
Judy Hopps: [driving up next to Nick pushing a stroller] Hello! Hi! It’s me again.
Nick Wilde: Hey, it’s Officer Toot-toot!
Judy Hopps: [sarcastically] Ha-ha-ho, no. Actually, It’s Officer Hopps and I’m here to ask you some questions about a case.
Nick Wilde: What happened, meter lady? Did somebody steal a traffic cone? Because it wasn’t me.
[annoyed, Judy rides up and pulls up in front of Nick, blaring her siren]
Nick Wilde: Hey, Carrots, you’re gonna wake the baby. I gotta get to work.
Judy Hopps: [gets out of her car with the folder, a notepad, and a carrot pen] This is important, sir. I think your ten dollars worth of pawpsicles can wait.
Nick Wilde: Ha. I make 200 bucks a day, Fluff. 365 days a year since I was 12. And time is money. Hop along.
Judy Hopps: Please, just look at the picture.
[shows a picture of Emmitt Otterton]
Judy Hopps: You sold Mr. Otterton that pawpsicle, right? Do you know him?
Nick Wilde: I know everybody. And I also know that somewhere there’s a toy store missing its stuffed animals. So why don’t you just get back into your box?
Judy Hopps: [smile drops, then becomes serious] Fine. Then we’ll have to do this the hard way.
[In a split second, there’s a parking boot attached to Nick’s stroller]
Nick Wilde: Did you just boot my stroller?
Judy Hopps: Nicholas Wilde, you are under arrest!
Nick Wilde: [scoffs] For what?
[in a patronizing tone]
Nick Wilde: Hurting your feewings?
Judy Hopps: Felony tax evasion.
[Nick’s eyes widen]
Judy Hopps: Yeeaah… 200 dollars a day, 365 days a year since you were twelve, that’s two decades, so times twenty which is… one million four hundred sixty thousand- I think, I mean I am just a dumb bunny, but we are good at multiplying. Anyway, according to your tax forms, you reported, let me see here, zero. Unfortunately, lying on a federal form is a punishable offense. Five years jail time.
Nick Wilde: Well it’s my word against yours.
[Judy pulls out her pen and plays back Nick’s confession]
Nick Wilde: [through carrot pen] “… 200 bucks a day, Fluff. 365 days a year since I was 12.”
Judy Hopps: Actually, it’s your word against yours. And if you want this pen, you’re going to cooperate with my investigation on finding that missing otter, or the only place you’ll be selling pawpsicles is the prison cafeteria.
Judy Hopps: It’s called a hustle, sweetheart.
[slight pause before hysterical laughter erupts from within the stroller and Finnick crawls out]
Finnick: She hustled you! She hustled you good! You’re a cop now, Nick! You’re gonna need one of these!
[slaps his police sticker on Nick]
Finnick: Have fun working with the fuzz!
Nick Wilde: Hey, Flash, wanna hear a joke?
Judy Hopps: NO!
[Judy growls in annoyance]
Nick Wilde: OK. What do you call a three-humped camel?
Flash: I don’t… know. What… do… you… call… a… three-humped… camel?
Nick Wilde: Pregnant!
[Nick laughs and elbows an irritated Judy. Flash’s face lights up as the joke dawns on him and he slowly laughs]
Judy Hopps: [sarcastically] Ha ha! Yes, very funny, very funny. Can we please just focus on the task?
Judy Hopps: Hurry! We gotta beat the rush hour, and…
Judy Hopps: IT’S NIGHT?
Nick Wilde: Flash is the fastest guy in there. If you need something done, he’s on it.
Judy Hopps: I hope so. We are really fighting the clock and every minute counts.
[sees the inside of the DMV]
Judy Hopps: Wait. They’re all SLOTHS? You said this was going to be quick!
Judy Hopps: [in mock surprise] Are you saying that because he’s a sloth he can’t be fast? I thought in Zootopia, anyone could be anything.
Nick Wilde: I think you said plenty.
Judy Hopps: What do you mean?
Nick Wilde: [saddened] Clearly there’s a biological component? That these predators may be reverting back to their primitive savage ways? Are you serious?
Judy Hopps: I just stated the facts of the case! I mean, its not like a bunny can go savage.
Nick Wilde: Right. But a fox could, huh?
Judy Hopps: Nick stop it! You’re not like them.
Nick Wilde: [getting angered] Oh, so there’s a them now?
Judy Hopps: You know what I mean! You’re not that kind of predator.
Nick Wilde: The kind that needs to be muzzled? The kind that makes you believe that you need to carry around fox repellent? Yeah, don’t think I didn’t notice that little item on the first time we met. So l-let me ask you a question; Are you afraid of me? You think I might-I might go savage? You think that I might try to…
Nick Wilde: EAT YOU?
[Judy jumps back and puts hand over Fox Spray]
Nick Wilde: I knew it. Just when I thought someone actually believed in me…
Judy Hopps: I thought this city would be a perfect place where everyone got along and anyone could be anything. Turns out, life’s a little bit more complicated than a slogan on a bumper sticker. Real life is messy. We all have limitations. We all make mistakes. Which means, hey, glass half full, we all have a lot in common. And the more we try to understand one another, the more exceptional each of us will be. But we have to try. So no matter what kind of person you are, I implore you: Try. Try to make the world a better place. Look inside yourself and recognize that change starts with you.
Judy Hopps: [Approaches reception desk where Clawhauser is munching on cereal] Excuse me… Down here… Hi.
Clawhauser: O. M. Goodness, they really did hire a bunny. Ho-whop! I gotta tell you, you’re even cuter than I thought you’d be.
Judy Hopps: Ooh, ah, you probably didn’t know, but a bunny can call another bunny ‘cute’, but when other animals do it, that’s a little…
Clawhauser: [Mortified] Hoo, I’m so sorry! Me, Benjamin Clawhauser, the guy everyone thinks is just a flabby donut-loving cop stereotyping you.
Nick Wilde: [about Bellwether] Do you think when she goes to sleep, she counts herself?
Judy Hopps: I came here to make the world a better place, but I think I broke it.
Chief Bogo: Don’t give yourself so much credit, Hopps. The world has always been broken, that’s why we need good cops. Like you.
Judy Hopps: [in a Limo with Nick, between two Polar bear thugs, whispering] What did you do, that made Mr. Big so mad at you?
Nick Wilde: [nervously] I um… I may have sold him, a very expensive wool rug. That was made from the fur, of a skunk… ‘s butt.
Judy Hopps: Oh, sweet cheese and crackers.
Judy Hopps: Tomorrow’s another day.
Pronk Oryx-Antlerson: Yeah, but it might be worse!
Judy Hopps: We are in a REALLY big hurry!
Flash: I am… on…
Judy Hopps: [hopefully] It?
Judy Hopps: [growls irritably]
Judy Hopps: Oh! You are naked!
Yax: For sure. We’re a naturalist club.
Judy Hopps: I mean, I am just a dumb bunny, but, we are good at multiplying.
Mr. Big: We may be evolved, but deep down we are still animals.
Judy Hopps: Well, he was a key witness, and I…
Chief Bogo: Two days to find the otter, or you quit. That was the deal.
[Holding out hand]
Chief Bogo: Badge.
Judy Hopps: But sir, we…
Chief Bogo: Badge!
Nick Wilde: [as Judy starts to turn in her badge] Uh… no.
Chief Bogo: What did you say, fox?
Nick Wilde: Sorry, what I said was… NO! She will not be giving you that badge.
Nick Wilde: Look, you gave her a… a… a clown vest and a three wheel joke mobile and two days to solve a case you guys haven’t cracked in two weeks? Yeah, no wonder she needed to get help from a fox. None of you guys were gonna help her, were you?
[Bogo starts to speak but Nick cuts him off]
Nick Wilde: Here’s the thing, chief. You gave her the 48 hours, so technically we still have… 10 left, to find our Mr. Otterton. And that’s exactly what we’re gonna do. So, if you’ll excuse us, we have a very big lead to follow and a case to crack. Good day.
Chief Bogo: [from trailer] It’s not about how badly you WANT something. It’s about what you are capable of!
Nick Wilde: Whatever you do, do not let go!
Judy Hopps: I’m gonna let go!
Nick Wilde: WHAT?
Nick Wilde: Flash, Flash, Hundred-Yard Dash!
Young Hopps: [Referring to Gideon Grey, with determination] Well, he was right about one thing. I don’t know when to quit!
Nick Wilde: [Counting his accomplice’s take for the day’s hustle] 39, 40, there you go! Way to work that diaper, Big Guy!
[Finnick boards his van]
Nick Wilde: No kiss bye-bye for Daddy?
Finnick: [In the driver’s seat, Finnick spits out his pacifier and glares at Nick]
[In a gruff adult voice]
Finnick: You kiss me tomorrow, I bite your face off!
[Puts on sunglasses with a sullen flick]
Nick Wilde: Never let them see that they get to you.
Bellwether: [On her guilt] It’s still my word against yours
Judy Hopps: Actually,
[holds up her carrot recorder pen, revealing its recorded Bellwether confessing]
Judy Hopps: it’s your word against yours.
Judy Hopps: It’s called a hustle, sweetheart. Boom.
[flashes a triumphant grin as Chief Bogo shows up with handcuffs behind Bellwether]
Chief Bogo: [after giving everyone else their assignments] Wilde… Hopps… parking duty. Dismissed.
[sees at their incredulous reactions, then smiles]
Chief Bogo: Just kidding!
Chief Bogo: We need to address the elephant in the room. Francine?
[Cuts to an elephant police officer, looking nervous]
Chief Bogo: Happy birthday.
[the room erupts in celebration]
Nick Wilde: Tell me if this story sounds familiar: naive little hick with good grades and big ideas decides, “Hey look at me, I’m gonna move to Zootopia, where predators and prey live in harmony and sing Kumbaya!” Only to find, whoopsie: we don’t all get along. And that dream of becoming a big city cop? Double whoopsie: she’s a meter maid. And whoopsie number three-sie: no one cares about her or her dreams. And soon enough, those dreams die, and our bunny sinks into an emotional and literal squalor living in a box under a bridge, until finally, she has no choice but to go back home with that cute, fuzzy-wuzzy little tail between her legs to become… you’re from Bunnyburrow, is that what you said? So how about a carrot farmer?
[smirks, then walks away]
Nick Wilde: That sound about right?
Judy Hopps: Is that Mr. Big?
Nick Wilde: Stop talking, stop talking!
[One polar bear turns Mr. Big’s chair to reveal that he is an arctic shrew]
Judy Hopps: Huh.
Mr. Big: Ice ’em.
[the polar bears are about to ice Judy and Nick]
Fru Fru: Daddy!
[sees the polar bears about to ice Judy and Nick]
Fru Fru: What did we say? No icing anyone at my wedding!
Mr. Big: I have to, baby, Daddy has to.
Judy Hopps: Hello! I’m here to ask you some questions about a case.
Nick Wilde: Then they should’ve gotta a real cop to solve it.
Judy Hopps: You are under arrest!
Nick Wilde: [mockingly] For what? Hwurting your fweelings?
Judy Hopps: YOU are a key witness!
Nick Wilde: No, HE is.
[Judy looks where Nick is pointing but sees no one there. She turns back and sees Nick running away]
Judy Hopps: [annoyed] Hey!
[She chases after him]
Gazelle: Zootopia is a unique place. It’s a crazy, beautiful, diverse city, where we celebrate our differences. This is not the Zootopia I know. The Zootopia I know is better than this. We don’t just blindly assign blame. We don’t know why these attacks keep happening. But it is irresponsible to label all predators as savages. We cannot let fear divide us. Please, give me back the Zootopia I love.

Chief Bogo: This is priority one. Hopps: parking duty.
[the other police officers laugh]
Judy Hopps: Sir, I’m not just some token bunny.
Chief Bogo: You strike out, you resign.
Judy Hopps: Deal.
Nick Wilde: [Wilde, now a cop pulls over a speeding motorist] Flash?, Flash, Hundred-Yard Dash?
Flash: [Flash slowly rolls down the window and smiles sheepishly] Niiiiick.
Bellwether: [Cornering Judy and Nick in a pit-like exhibit in the Natural History Museum] Well, you should’ve just stayed on the carrot farm, huh. It really is too bad, I… I did like you!
Judy Hopps: What’re you going to do, kill me?
Bellwether: Oh ho ho ho, no, of course not.
[Aims the Night Howler gun at Nick]
Bellwether: He is!
Judy Hopps: [a pellet hits Nick] No! Oh, Nick!
Bellwether: [calling the ZPD] Yes, police! There’s a savage fox in the National History Museum! Officer Hopps is down! Please hurry!
Judy Hopps: No! Nick! Don’t do this! Fight it!
Bellwether: Oh, but, he can’t help it! Can he? Since preds are just biologically predisposed to be savages.
[Nick growls and chases Judy]
Bellwether: Gosh, think of the headline: “Hero cop killed by savage fox!”
Judy Hopps: So that’s it. Prey fears predator and you stay in power?
Bellwether: Yeah. Pretty much.
Judy Hopps: It won’t work!
Bellwether: Fear always works, and I’ll dart every predator in Zootopia, to keep it that way.
Chief Bogo: There are some new recruits with us I should introduce. But I’m not going to because, I don’t care.
Young Nick: [Undergoing Junior Ranger Scout initiation by flashlight] I – Nicholas Wilde – promise to be brave, loyal, helpful, and trustworthy!
Junior Ranger Scout 1: Even though… you’re a fox?
Young Nick: [his smile fades] What?
[Flashlight goes out and Nick is tackled to the ground]
Young Nick: No! NO! What did I do wrong, you guys? Help! Please, what did I do wrong? What did I do?
[a muzzle is forced onto him]
Young Nick: NO!
Junior Ranger Scout 1: You thought we could ever trust a fox without a muzzle? You’re even dumber than you look!
[Nick rushes outside and hides behind the steps of the building]
Junior Ranger Scout 2: [from inside] Aww, is he gonna cry?
[Nick struggles to remove the muzzle, finally succeeding and throwing it away from him, struggling to hold back his tears]
Judy Hopps: And… two?
Nick Wilde: That if the world’s only going to see a fox as shifty and untrustworthy, there’s no point in being anything else.
Judy Hopps: [places her paw on Nick’s arm] Nick, you are so much more than that.
Nick Wilde: [shrinks away] Boy, we’ve got some traffic down there, we should check the jam-cams!
[holds up cell and asks someone to check the jam-cams]
Judy Hopps: Nick, I’m glad you told me.
Nick Wilde: Jam-cams…
Judy Hopps: Seriously.
Nick Wilde: No, no, wait.
[grabs Judy’s arm and turns her around]
Nick Wilde: There are traffic cameras located all around the city…
[Nick starts stroking Assistant Mayor Bellwether’s hair]
Nick Wilde: [whispers] So… fluffy
Judy Hopps: [whispers] Hey, stop that!
Nick Wilde: Sheep never let me get this close…
Judy Hopps: You can’t just touch a sheep’s wool…
[Nick continues stroking Bellwether’s hair]
Gazelle: [Bogo is in his office, using the Dancing with Gazelle app] Wow, you are one hot dancer, Chief Bogo.
Clawhauser: [Clawhauser storms in] Chief Bogo!
Chief Bogo: Not now!
Clawhauser: Wait, is that Gazelle?
Chief Bogo: [dismissing] No!
Gazelle: [from the app] I’m Gazelle, and you are one hot dancer.
Clawhauser: You have the app too?
Clawhauser: Aww, Chief!
Chief Bogo: Clawhauser! Can’t you see I’m working on the missing mammal cases?
Clawhauser: Oh, oh, oh, yes, of course, about that sir. Officer Hopps just called – she found all of them.
Gazelle: Wow, I’m impressed!
Bellwether: There! Traffic cams for the whole city. Well this is so exciting, actually. I mean, you know, I never get to do anything this important.
Judy Hopps: But you’re the assistant mayor of Zootopia.
Bellwether: Oh, I’m more of a glorified secretary. I think Mayor Lionheart just wanted the sheep vote. But he did give me that nice mug.
[the mug, which has pens and pencils in it, says “World’s Greatest Dad”, but the word Dad is crossed out with “Assistant Mayor” written above it]
Bellwether: Feels good to be appreciated.
Clawhauser: [while Judy is trying to radio for reinforcements to the ZPD, Clawhauser is showing his Dancing with Gazelle app to a wolf convict] Are you familiar with Gazelle, greatest singer of our lifetime, angel with horns? Huh. Okay, hold on, keep watching.
[shows his phone with a tiger dancer with Clawhauser’s face]
Clawhauser: Who’s that beside her? Who is it?
Gazelle: [from the app] Wow, you are one hot dancer, Benjamin Clawhauser.
Clawhauser: [laughs] It’s me!
Clawhauser: Do you think it was real? It looks so real! It’s not, it’s just a new app.
[Turns to his radio]
Clawhauser: Hold on a second.
Gideon Grey: Give me your tickets right now, or I’m gonna kick your meek little sheep butt!
[shoves a lamb and takes her tickets]
Sharla: Ow! Cut it out, Gideon!
Gideon Grey: Baa-Baa! What are you gonna do, cry?
Young Hopps: [Young Hopps approaches in her police costume] Hey! You heard her, cut it out!
Gideon Grey: Nice costume, loser! What crazy world are you living in where you think a bunny could be a cop?
Young Hopps: [unphased] Kindly return my friend’s tickets!
Gideon Grey: Come get ’em! But watch out, ’cause I’m a fox! And like you said in your dumb little stage play, us predators used to eat prey, and that killer instinct is still in our duh’nuh!
Travis: Uh, I’m pretty sure it’s pronounced D-N-A.
Gideon Grey: Don’t tell me what I already know, Travis!
Bellwether: Think of it. 90% of the population united against a common enemy. We’ll be unstoppable!
Bonnie Hopps: Of course, it is okay to have dreams.
Stu Hopps: Just as long as you don’t believe too much in them.
Gazelle: [from a Zootopia billboard] I’m Gazelle. Welcome to Zootopia.
Judy Hopps: Wait, wait, wait!
Judy Hopps: Oh, no!
Priscilla: Yes… Flash?
Flash: What… do…
Judy Hopps: No!
Flash: …You call… a…
Judy Hopps: A three humped camel? Pregnant! Okay, great, we got it!
Flash: Three… humped…
Judy Hopps: Please, just…
[Rolls her eyes in exasperation]
Judy Hopps: Ughhh…
Bellwether: I framed Lionheart; I can frame you too!
Young Hopps: It may seem impossible to small minds
[she briefly directs her attention away from the audience and right at Gideon]
Young Hopps: I’m looking at you, Gideon Grey – but just 211 miles away stands the great city of Zootopia where our ancestors first joined together in peace and declared that anyone can be ANYTHING!
Young Hopps: [voiceover] Fear. Treachery. Bloodlust. Thousands of years ago, these were the forces that ruled our world. A world where pray were scared of predators. And predators had an uncontrollable, biological urge to maim and maul and…
[acting in a talent show, a small animal in a tiger costume attacks Young Hopps]
Young Hopps: [throws red confetti into the air as if it’s coming out of her body] Blood! Blood! Blood!
[she falls down, continuing to throw red confetti and then squeezes ketchup into the air, which lands on her]
Young Hopps: And death.
Nick Wilde: Okay, press conference 101. You wanna look smart? Answer their question with your own question, and then answer that question. Like this: ‘Excuse me, Officer Hopps. What can you tell us about the case?’
Nick Wilde: [turing] ‘Well, was this a tough case? Yes, yes it was.’ You see?
Gazelle: [Last Lines] Good evening Zootopia! Come on everybody, put your paws up!
Stu Hopps: You want to talk about making the world a better place, no better way to do it than becoming a carrot farmer.
Bonnie Hopps: Yes! Your dad, me, your 275 brothers and sisters, we’re changing the world.
Stu Hopps: Yeah.
Bonnie Hopps: One carrot at a time.
Stu Hopps: Amen to that.
Duke Weaselton: [to Mr. Big] You dirty rat, why are you helping her? She’s a cop!
Nick Wilde: [Stroking Bellwether’s fur] So fluffy!
Stu Hopps: Judy, you ever wonder how your mom and me got to be so darn happy?
Young Hopps: Nope.
Stu Hopps: Well, we gave up on our dreams, and we settled. Right, Bon?
Bonnie Hopps: Oh, yes. That’s right, Stu, we settled hard.
Chief Bogo: Shut your tiny mouth now, young lady.
