Bird: You know, this used to be a helluva good country. I can't understand what's gone wrong.
Whale: Everybody got chicken, that's what happened, man. Hey, we can't even get into a motel. You dig? They're scared, man.
Lemon: Can someone with hands help me get this helmet off?
Bird: Oh, they're not scared of you. They're scared of what you represent to 'em.
Whale: All we represent to them, man, is somebody needs a haircut.
Bird: What you represent to them is freedom.
Lemon: If you each lift one side, it'll pop off...
Whale: What the hell's wrong with freedom, man? That's what it's all about.
Bird: Oh yeah, that's right, that's what it's all about, all right. But talkin' about it and bein' it - that's two different things.
Lemon: Maybe I'll just try scrapin' my head against this tree again. Can someone with legs carry me back to the tree?
Bird: 'Course, don't ever tell anybody that they're not free 'cause then they're gonna get real busy killin' and maimin' to prove to you that they are. Oh yeah, they're gonna talk to you about individual freedom, but they see a free individual, it's gonna scare 'em.
Whale: Mmmm, well, that don't make 'em runnin' scared.
Bird: No, it makes 'em dangerous. Nik, nik, nik, nik, nik, nik, nik, nik - Swamp.
