The Lorax: So you’re telling me that you didn’t see me magically appear out of that stump. With all the thunder and lightning. You didn’t see any of that?
Once-ler: No. But, that sounds amazing. Can I see some of that?
The Lorax: Yeah, I could show you. But that’s not how it works.
Ted: The last seed?
Once-ler: It’s not about what it is. It’s about what it can become. Just like – you’re not just a boy.
Once-ler: Unless someone like you cares an awful lot, things aren’t going to get better. They’re not.
Ted: You do know that you are talking in rhyme, don’t you?
Once-ler: Now that’s a thneed! Nothing unmanly about knitting. No sir!
Once-ler: Why are you so interested in trees, anyway? Why aren’t you like other kids? Breakdancing and wearing bellbottoms and playing the Donkey Kongs?
Once-ler: It’s a girl, isn’t it?
Ted: What? No!
Once-ler: Really? Because when a guy does something stupid once, well that’s because he’s a guy. But if he does the same stupid thing twice, that’s usually to impress some girl.
The Lorax: How nice to meet someone so undeterred by things like…reality.
