Doctor Dolittle (1998)
Ossie Davis: Archer Dolittle
Archer Dolittle : [to Lisa and Maya, the latter of whom has resolved to give up her experiments and be more like John] ... John's always been able to talk with animals. I used to think it was a handicap, but it's not; it's a gift. Sometimes, daddies are the ones who need to change.
Maya Dolittle : Grandpa, did Daddy learn how to be bossy from you?
Archer Dolittle : He certainly didn't learn it from his mother, God rest her soul.
[John's Range-Rover drives up, with Rodney's cage strapped to the roof]
Maya Dolittle : Daddy, what's Rodney doing on the roof?
Dr. John Dolittle : I thought the fresh air would do him good.
Rodney : Lunatic! Crazy man! Psycho!
Dr. John Dolittle : [looks at Rodney murderously] ... Daddy, we still got those BB guns I used to play with when I was little?
5-Year-Old John Dolittle : She was my best friend.
Archer Dolittle : You'll make some real friends now.
Lucky : [narrating] From that day on, John Dolittle never spoke to animals again.
Archer Dolittle : Someday, you're gonna thank me for this.
Lucky : [narrating] And after a while, all he could remember was that deep down inside, there was something missing.
