The Lorax: [first meets Once-ler] Hey!
[Once-ler shrieks and falls backwards]
The Lorax: Did you chop down this tree?
Once-ler: Uhh... No. Who did it?ǃ [gasps] What's that? [the Lorax looks back and Once-ler drops his axe on Pipsqueak the Bar-ba-loot] I think he did it.
Lorax: [growls] Leave! Vacate the premises! Take your axe and get out!
Once-ler: And who are you? [pokes the Lorax]
Lorax: Hey, hey! I-I'm the Lorax, guardian of the forest. I speak for the trees. [The Once-ler stares at him] So, you're telling me, that you didn't see me magically appear out of that stump? With all the lightning and thunder and stuff. You didn't see any of that?
Once-ler: No, but that sounds amazing. Can I see some of that?
Lorax: Uhh, yeah, I could show you. But that's not how it works.
Once-ler: [condescending] Okay, um... Didn’t really happen. Oh, I know what you want! [pokes Lorax’s nose, He reaches into his pocket and pulls out a Marshmallow. Holds it out.] [baby talk] I’ve got one of these for the cutest little guy I ever saw. Yummy-yummy-yummy... [The Lorax stares at the marshmallow]
Lorax: How dare you! Give me that! [He grabs the marshmallow. Sniffs it. It smells good] Mmm. I'm going to eat this, but I am highly offended by it.
[He plops it into his mouth. Then makes his way over to the Once-ler’s tent-house which is being supported by stakes and ropes. Kick out a STAKE. The canvas starts to sag]
Once-ler: Whoa! What are you... Hey, Mustache! Will you stop that? [The Lorax continues circling around the tent-house pulling up stakes. He grabs his HAMMER and follows, pounding them back in.] What's your deal, man?
Lorax: [They circle faster and faster around the tent-house, He pulling up stakes and the Once-ler pounding them back in.] Time for you to go, Beanpole!
Once-ler: Pull them right out. Just going to put them right back in. We can do this all day.
[Until the Once-ler turns a corner and is about to bring his hammer down on Pipsqueak. The Lorax has placed him right where the stake would have been. The Lorax holds up his hand to stop the Once-ler]
Lorax: Stop right there! Stop it! So you would hammer one of nature's innocent creatures?
[The Lorax pats Pipsqueak on the head and he happily runs offscreen]
Once-ler: [After the Lorax accuses him of harming Pipsqueak after almost hitting him with a hammer] What? No! I would never hit this little guy. You, on the other hand, I would gladly pound you and your mustache into the ground!
[The Lorax turns to all of the watching animals]
Lorax: Behold! The intruder and his violent ways. [To Once-Ler] Shame on you. For shame!
[Once-ler drops the hammer and hides it behind his feet. Then he sees all of the animals nodding their heads in agreement. He’s had it.
Once-ler: All right, you know what? That's it! [Points at Lorax] You listen to me, you furry meatloaf. I'm going to chop down as many trees as I need. Okay? Newsflash! Not going anywhere! End of story. [He turns and enters his cottage. His sticks his tongue out and does Raspberries to the Lorax before slamming the door behind him! He sighs heavily, shaking his head]
Lorax: Then you leave me no choice. [Startled, the Once-ler turns and sees that the Lorax is somehow inside with him. He points a threatening finger at the Once-ler and speaks in a spooky voice as if he’s casting a spell] If you're not gone by the time the sun sets on this valley, all the forces of nature will be unleashed upon you and curse you until the end of your days! You have been warned. [Lorax turns to make a dramatic exit, but can’t reach the doorknob of Once-ler’s door. He hops a couple of times. Finally, the Once-ler lets him out.] Thanks.
Once-ler: Yeah, okay.
Lorax: You have been warned.
[The Lorax storms out and slams the door, leaving the Once-ler alone in his cottage.]
