versatility

CharlottesWebBenjamin wanted to watch Charlotte’s Web (the animated version from the early 1970s) for Friday-night dinner and a movie. Many of the book’s greatest lines are preserved in the script. Here’s one of my favorites:

“I didn’t know you could lay eggs,” said Wilbur in amazement.

“Oh, sure,” said the spider. “I’m versatile.”

“What does ‘versatile’ mean — full of eggs?” asked Wilbur.
