Babe: Pig in the City (1998) Poster

Magda Szubanski: Mrs. Esme Cordelia Hoggett



  • Mrs. Esme Cordelia Hoggett : [speaking very rapidly as the court stenographer looks on with a dumbfound expression]  Oh, well, yes, I've given myself a good, hard talking-to, let me tell you. I said to myself, "Esme, you have let yourself down, you have let Arthur down, and you have let the pig down..."

    The Narrator : The judge had never heard anyone speak so many words in such short of time.

    Mrs. Esme Cordelia Hoggett : Who'd trust you? So...

    The Narrator : Evidently, this was a woman of clear conscience and good intent.

    Mrs. Esme Cordelia Hoggett : I used to dismiss pigs, but then a pig became my husband's best friend...

    The Narrator : Besides, he grew up on a farm and had a fondness for pigs.

    Mrs. Esme Cordelia Hoggett : You can bind me in chains, but the minute I'm set free, I shall march straight back out into those ugly streets and continue to search for my Arthur's pig!

    Judge : [bangs gavel]  Case dismissed!
