Winnie the Pooh: It’s just too bad it’s over. I would’ve liked it to go on, for a while longer.


 

Winnie the Pooh: But what I like doing best is nothing. How do you do nothing?
Young Christopher Robin: It’s when people call out, “What are you going to do, Christopher Robin?” And you say, “Oh, nothing.” And then you go ahead and do it.
Winnie the Pooh: Ah, yes. Doing nothing often leads to the very best something.


 

Young Christopher Robin: Pooh, when I’m off not doing nothing, will you come up here sometimes?
Winnie the Pooh: Just me? Where will you be?
Young Christopher Robin: I’ll be right here.
Winnie the Pooh: But what should happen if you forget about me?
Young Christopher Robin: I won’t ever forget about you, Pooh. I promise. Not even when I’m a hundred.

Christopher Robin: Sir, your father promised these people good jobs to come home to after the war, and, well, they’d do anything for this company. I’d do anything for this company.
Giles Winslow: My father has called an emergency meeting on Monday, and we need to produce the cuts by then. It’s sink or swim.
Christopher Robin: But I promised my wife and daughter I’d take them away this weekend, sir.
Giles Winslow: I thought you’d do anything for this company.


 

Giles Winslow: Do you have dreams, Robin?
Christopher Robin: I beg your pardon, sir?
Giles Winslow: Well, I’ll let you into a little secret. Dreams don’t come for free, Robin. Nothing comes from nothing. And if this ship goes down, you need to ask yourself the question, “Am I a swimmer, or am I a sinker?” Well, which one are you, Robin?
Christopher Robin: Well, obviously I’d like to reply that I’m a swimmer, sir.
Giles Winslow: Right answer! Me too. That’s why I shall be working this weekend also. All hands on deck, and all that. This may help, a list here of names. People who can walk the plank if you, um, if we don’t come up with something. It’s all on you, Robin.

Christopher Robin: Oh, good heavens.


 

Evelyn Robin: Madeline wanted to wait for you but it got so late.
Christopher Robin: Yes, I’m sorry, I got held up at work.

Christopher Robin: Well, it can’t be helped.
Evelyn Robin: It never can.


 

Madeline Robin: Yes, so there’s no work to do this weekend. We can do whatever we want. We’ll go back to your cottage. Play where you played. We can do puzzles, board games.
Christopher Robin: Right. Um, I wanted to talk to you about that. I can’t come this weekend.
Madeline Robin: But summer will be over soon.
Christopher Robin: I have to stay for work. You and your mother will go.
Madeline Robin: I never see you.
Christopher Robin: Well, I wished I didn’t have to stay for work, but dreams don’t come for free, Madeline. You have to work for them. Nothing comes from nothing. Do you understand?
Madeline Robin: I understand.


 

[referring sending Madeline to boarding school]
Evelyn Robin: And come on, Christopher. You know she doesn’t want to go.
Christopher Robin: I went away when I was her age. It’ll prepare her for the real world. Set her up for a career. Which, well, isn’t that our responsibility to her?
[Evelyn looks down and shakes her head]
Christopher Robin: What?
Evelyn Robin: Do you even like your job?
Christopher Robin: What’s that got to do with anything?
Evelyn Robin: You’re going to hit your limit. One day you’re going to crack.
Christopher Robin: Evelyn. Look, if I work really hard now, then in the future our life will be…
Evelyn Robin: Will be what? Will be better? Worse? We don’t care, we want you. This is life, Christopher. This weekend is your life. Your life is happening now. Right in front of you. Look. Hello! Yahoo. Remember me? I’m your wife. And that’s another thing. I haven’t seen you laugh in years.
Christopher Robin: Evelyn.
Evelyn Robin: I want to see you have fun, sometimes. Be silly. I didn’t fall for you because you had your career set up.
Christopher Robin: Was it my dancing?
Evelyn Robin: Actually, yes, it was, it was dancing with you. Being held by you.
Christopher Robin: Look, don’t make this harder on me. I am sorry.


 

Christopher Robin: What to do, what to do, what to do?
Winnie the Pooh: What to do, indeed.
[Christopher turns and suddenly sees Pooh behind him]
Christopher Robin: Pooh?
Winnie the Pooh: Christopher Robin!
Christopher Robin: No! No, no, no, no, no! You can’t be here.
Winnie the Pooh: Hmm.
Christopher Robin: This can’t be happening. It’s stress.
Winnie the Pooh: It’s not stress.
Christopher Robin: My God, I’m stressed.
Winnie the Pooh: It’s Pooh.
Christopher Robin: I’m so exhausted. Evelyn warned me.
Winnie the Pooh: I like to be warmed. Warmed and cozy.


 

Winnie the Pooh: I’ve cracked.
[he touches Pooh]
Christopher Robin: I’ve totally cracked.
Winnie the Pooh: I don’t see any cracks. A few wrinkles maybe.

Christopher Robin: Pooh, you’re here! How are you here, Pooh?
Winnie the Pooh: Oh. Well, I went through the door through which Christopher Robin is known to appear. And now, I’m here!
Christopher Robin: But the tree I remember was behind the cottage in Sussex, not here in London.
Winnie the Pooh: I suppose it’s where it needs to be.
[referring to the tree in the park]
Christopher Robin: There’s no opening. There’s no door on the other side.
Winnie the Pooh: Oh, we must not need it anymore.
Christopher Robin: Well that’s a silly explanation.
Winnie the Pooh: Why, thank you.


 

Christopher Robin: Look, you can’t just keep saying hello to people. People can’t see you moving and talking.
Winnie the Pooh: But why?
Christopher Robin: Because, because you’re different. And people don’t like things that are different.
Winnie the Pooh: So I shouldn’t be me.
Christopher Robin: No! No, you should always be yourself.
Winnie the Pooh: Oh, this is very confusing. It may be the hunger.
Christopher Robin: You’ve just eaten!
Winnie the Pooh: Oh, that’s right. Maybe I didn’t eat enough.
Christopher Robin: Look, never mind about that. For now, just try and be a less exuberant you.
Winnie the Pooh: Ex-Pooh-berant.


 

Christopher Robin: I know, I’ve got it! How about, play nap time.
Winnie the Pooh: I love play!
Christopher Robin: Well, let’s see it.
Winnie the Pooh: Like this?
[Pooh slumps against the glass, as if he’s napping]
Christopher Robin: Well done. Now, just keep absolutely still. That’s it. Come on.


 

Winnie the Pooh: Your ladder is broken.
Christopher Robin: That’s not a ladder, that was a shelf.
Winnie the Pooh: That explains why it’s no good for climbing.


 

Christopher Robin: I haven’t got time to muck about. I should be working. Trying to find a solution. Even though I think it may be impossible.
Winnie the Pooh: People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.
Christopher Robin: No, Pooh, that’s not the… Oh, never mind.


 

Christopher Robin: Pooh, do you think you might be able to amuse yourself for a while? I have got some rather pressing work to do.
[looks out the train window]
Winnie the Pooh: House. Clouds. House. Tree. Bush. A man. Dog.
Christopher Robin: Pooh. What’re you doing?
Winnie the Pooh: Oh, I’m playing a game. It’s called “Say What You See”.
Christopher Robin: Well could you “Say What You See” a little more quietly?
Winnie the Pooh: [quietly] House. Grass. Trees. Pond. I don’t know what that is.
Christopher Robin: Pooh.
Winnie the Pooh: Well, that’s a man.
Christopher Robin: Pooh. A little bit more quietly. Please?


 

Winnie the Pooh: Who is that?
Christopher Robin: Pooh!
Winnie the Pooh: She can’t be Pooh. I’m Pooh.
Christopher Robin: No, that’s Evelyn. My wife.
Winnie the Pooh: Oh. She looks very kind.
Christopher Robin: She is very kind.
Winnie the Pooh: And who is that?
Christopher Robin: That’s Madeline. My daughter.
Winnie the Pooh: Can she come and play with us?
Christopher Robin: No, no, she can’t come.
Winnie the Pooh: Does she not like to play?
Christopher Robin: No, no, it’s just that… Well, look, she’s working.
Winnie the Pooh: Oh, I see. Does she have a briefcase like you?
Christopher Robin: No!


 

[referring to Madeline]
Winnie the Pooh: Do you think she’d like my red balloon? It might make her happy.

[puts Pooh down at the trunk of the tree]
Christopher Robin: There, Pooh. I got you home.
Winnie the Pooh: Aren’t you coming with me?
Christopher Robin: I can’t. I’ve got to go back to London.
Winnie the Pooh: But I need your help, I’ve lost all of my friends.
Christopher Robin: Perhaps they’re back now and you can tell them all about your adventures.
Winnie the Pooh: Well I would like to do that.
Christopher Robin: Off you go then.
Winnie the Pooh: Goodbye, Christopher.
Christopher Robin: Goodbye, Pooh.
[Christopher turns to leave, Pooh steps inside the hole in the tree trunk, Christopher stops, turns and sees Pooh just standing inside the tree trunk]
Christopher Robin: What are you doing, Pooh?
Winnie the Pooh: Sometimes when I’m going somewhere and I wait, a somewhere comes to me.
Christopher Robin: Right. Well, good luck with everything.
Winnie the Pooh: I should need good luck, for I am a bear of very little brain.
Christopher Robin: Right. Well, goodbye.
Winnie the Pooh: Goodbye.


 

Winnie the Pooh: Look out, Pooh. Here I come. Pooh? Pooh! Pooh!
[as he goes through the hole in the tree, he gets stuck trying to come out the other side]
Christopher Robin: Oh. So this is what this feels like.
Winnie the Pooh: Are you stuck?
Christopher Robin: Yes, it would appear that I am stuck.
Winnie the Pooh: Happens to me all the time. Have you just eaten honey?
Christopher Robin: No, Pooh, I have not just eaten honey.


 

Christopher Robin: Oh, it’s still here. Hundred Acre Wood. Well, I didn’t expect to be here this morning. Was it always this gloomy?
Winnie the Pooh: I don’t believe so.
Christopher Robin: I wonder where they all could be.
Winnie the Pooh: Well, I was hoping you would know.
Christopher Robin: Pooh, I haven’t been here in years. How would I know?
Winnie the Pooh: But you’re Christopher Robin.
Christopher Robin: Ah, right. Yes.


 

Christopher Robin: The key is to head in just one direction to avoid getting lost, especially in all this fog.
Winnie the Pooh: I always get to where I’m going by walking away from where I have been.
Christopher Robin: Do you?
Winnie the Pooh: That’s the way I do it.


 

Christopher Robin: Pooh, are you sure we’re still heading north?
Winnie the Pooh: Let me look.
Christopher Robin: You haven’t been looking?
Winnie the Pooh: Not since I started following these footsteps.
Christopher Robin: Pooh, they’re our footsteps! Oh, we’ve just been going around in a great, big circle. What’s the matter with you? All you had to do was follow the compass!
Winnie the Pooh: But it led us to the Heffalumps and the Woozles.
Christopher Robin: There are no Heffalumps and Woozles, do you hear? Oh, I should never have trusted you with it!
Winnie the Pooh: I’m sorry. I’ll put it back in the holder of important things.
[as he steps forward, Pooh trips over Christopher’s case, which opens, and the wind blows the papers inside away]
Christopher Robin: Oh, my papers! They’re irreplaceable! I shall never remember all this! Pooh, you’re right. You are a bear of very little brain. Do you know what’ll happen if I lose one single sheet of this? Winslow will eat me for breakfast.
Winnie the Pooh: A Woozle will eat you for breakfast?
Christopher Robin: Yes, a great big Woozle will gobble me up.
Winnie the Pooh: Well, that doesn’t sound like fun.
Christopher Robin: That’s the real world for you. Oh, Pooh, there’s more to life than just balloons and honey.
Winnie the Pooh: Are you sure?


 

Christopher Robin: Silly bear. I don’t know why you came back. I’m not a child anymore. I’m an adult, with adult responsibilities.
Winnie the Pooh: But you’re Christopher Robin.
Christopher Robin: No. I’m not how you remember me.
Winnie the Pooh: I’m sorry. You’re right. You should let me go for a fish in the sea.
Christopher Robin: “A fish in the sea?” No, efficiency!
[he turns and sees Pooh has disappeared]
Christopher Robin: Pooh? Pooh? Winnie the Pooh? I haven’t got time for this.
[he starts running around to look for Pooh]
Christopher Robin: Pooh! Pooh, where are you? Oh, where have you gone, you silly bear? I didn’t mean to frighten you. Pooh!


 

Christopher Robin: Hello, Eeyore.
Eeyore: Hello, Heffalump.
Christopher Robin: I’m not a Heffalump. I’m Christopher Robin. Do you remember, I used to try and cheer you up?
Eeyore: I don’t remember being cheery.
Christopher Robin: What were you doing in the water?
Eeyore: Just an average Windsday morning for me. Woke up. Windy. Wind blew me into the river. It must know I can’t swim.


 

Eeyore: There’s that sound again. It’s your fellow Heffalumps, calling you home.
Christopher Robin: Come on, Eeyore. Let’s get to the bottom of this.
Eeyore: I’m already at the bottom.


 

Christopher Robin: Tigger, it’s Christopher Robin.
Tigger: Huh?
Christopher Robin: Oh, Tigger, just look. Just look closely.
Tigger: He’s giant. Huge! He’s a massive beast. And he smells a little funny.
Rabbit: Don’t look him in the eye. He has hair everywhere!
Eeyore: Even in his ears.
Rabbit: Such troubled eyes.
Roo: His nose is huge!
Kanga: He’s hideous.
Christopher Robin: Well, that’s a bit harsh.
Owl: Well, he’s clearly a Heffalump.
Christopher Robin: No, no, the Heffalump was just your old weather vane, Owl.


 

Christopher Robin: Hello, Pooh.
Winnie the Pooh: Hello, Christopher Robin.
Christopher Robin: I’m so sorry, Pooh. I’m so terribly sorry. I should never have shouted at you.
Winnie the Pooh: Well, I am a bear of very little brain.
Christopher Robin: No, Pooh. You are, I think, a bear of very big heart.


 

Christopher Robin: Thank you for waiting for me, Pooh.
Winnie the Pooh: It’s always a sunny day when Christopher Robin comes to play.


 

Christopher Robin: I’m not who I used to be.
Winnie the Pooh: Of course you are. You’re our friend. Look at how you saved everybody today. You are our hero.
Christopher Robin: I’m not a hero, Pooh. I’m lost.
Winnie the Pooh: But I found you. Didn’t I?
[Pooh leans in and hugs Christopher]


 

[Piglet wakes Pooh, who’s fallen asleep next to Christopher]
Winnie the Pooh: Good morning, Piglet.
Christopher Robin: Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!
Winnie the Pooh: What is it?
Christopher Robin: It’s tomorrow!
Winnie the Pooh: It’s usually today.
Christopher Robin: Well, yes, of course it’s today. But that means I slept here, and I’m meant to be in the office in…
[he look at his watch and sees it’s not working]
Christopher Robin: Oh, blast! How did I let this happen?


 

Piglet: Pooh, are you sure we need to go to Lon Don?
Winnie the Pooh: Oh, yes, Piglet. Christopher Robin always comes to save us. Now, it’s our turn to save him.
Eeyore: We’re probably too late. I’d say they’ve eaten him already.


 

Winnie the Pooh: You must be a Madeline.
[Madeline screams upon seeing Pooh, Piglet and Eeyore]
Eeyore: Oh! Danger!
Winnie the Pooh: I’m ever so sorry.
Piglet: We’re sorry. We didn’t mean to interrupt your games.
Madeline Robin: You’re talking.
Winnie the Pooh: Me? No, I’m not talking. Oh, well, I am now, I suppose.
Madeline Robin: Wait. I recognize you. You’re the bear in my father’s drawings.
Winnie the Pooh: Winnie the Pooh. Pooh for short. This is Piglet. Eeyore.
Tigger: Wait for me!
Eeyore: Oh, dear.
Tigger: And I’m Tigger, T-I-double Guh-Er!
Madeline Robin: What’s a Tigger?
Tigger: Well, I’m glad you asked.
Eeyore: Please, not the song.
[Tigger starts singing]


 

Winnie the Pooh: And the game is called, “Say What You See.” You first, Piglet.
Piglet: Panic. Worry. Catastrophe.
Tigger: Speed! Danger! Recklessness!
Eeyore: Disgrace. Shame. Humiliation.
Winnie the Pooh: Well, that’s one way to play it.


 

Winnie the Pooh: Doing nothing often leads to the very best something.
Madeline Robin: What? Who told you that?
Winnie the Pooh: Christopher Robin.
Madeline Robin: That doesn’t sound like father.
Winnie the Pooh: He also said that your happiness means the world to him.


 

[after seeing his reflection in the cab mirror]
Tigger: Hey, what the…? There’s a Tigger looking right at me. But I’m the only one!
Piglet: What are you doing?
Madeline Robin: Tigger, be quiet.
Tigger: I just saw the most preposterous imposterator.


 

Piglet: Careful! We don’t want to fly out!
Tigger: We just need a leap of faith!


 

Evelyn Robin: Is that a donkey talking?
Christopher Robin: Yes, well, it’s Eeyore. Eeyore, this is Evelyn, my wife.
Eeyore: Hello, Evelyn My Wife.
Evelyn Robin: Hello, talking donkey. How are you doing today?
Eeyore: Don’t get me started.


 

Christopher Robin: Thank God we found you. Are you alright?
Madeline Robin: I lost your papers. I’m sorry.
Christopher Robin: Madeline, darling, that doesn’t matter. You’re safe. That’s all that’s important, not my papers.
Madeline Robin: But your work is so important. I thought that maybe if I brought you your papers that you wouldn’t send me away, and then we could all be together. I saved a little bit.
Christopher Robin: Sweetheart, I was wrong about work. I was wrong about everything, and I’m so sorry. I’ve been a father of very little brain. I lost myself, Maddy. And I almost lost you. My most precious love. And I don’t want you to go away. You don’t have to go to boarding school. You can stay here with us, and I’ll never let you go.
[they embrace each other]
Christopher Robin: And I’ll read you a bedtime story every night.
Madeline Robin: I’d like that. Though maybe I’ll choose from now on.
Christopher Robin: Alright.


 

Eeyore: Well, another disastrous expotition.
Evelyn Robin: I don’t know about that, Eeyore. It all depends on how you look at things.


 

Old Man Winslow: Congratulations, Robin. I’d like you to start on this immediately.
Christopher Robin: Thank you very much, sir. I look forward to it. But first, I’m going to be doing nothing for a while with my family.
Old Man Winslow: Because when you do nothing it leads to the very best of a something. Did I get that right?
Christopher Robin: Close enough, sir.


 

[referring to Eeyore]
Giles Winslow: That donkey was staring at me.
Old Man Winslow: A donkey staring at you? Clearly, it’s you who’ve lost your marbles.


 

[last lines]
Winnie the Pooh: Christopher Robin, what day is it?
Christopher Robin: It’s today.
Winnie the Pooh: Oh, my favorite day.
Christopher Robin: Mine too, Pooh. Mine too.
Winnie the Pooh: Yesterday, when it was tomorrow, it was too much day for me.
Christopher Robin: Silly old bear.
[Christopher puts his arm around Pooh and they stare at the sunset]
