And if you have a personal fave that isn't listed, definitely add it.

In 'The Lorax,' a young boy, Ted (Efron), lives in a city that is fairly generic. Everything is planned and controlled. Ted is happy enough, until he meets beautiful Audrey (Swift). Audrey's one dream in life is to finally see a real tree. Ted sets off to try and make this dream come true, though it isn't easy. Along the way, he meets Once-ler (Helms), who tells him about the Lorax: the creature who is trying to guard what's left of the world. The Lorax (DeVito) is a bad-tempered, disgruntled little creature, to be sure. He has no problems standing up for what he believes is right, even if he doesn't exactly stand tall. Can Ted help the Lorax save the last trees? Dr. Seuss' 'The Lorax' also features the voices of Rob Riggle, Betty White and Jenny Slate.

    Nothing is Going to Get Better

    Once-ler: "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better - it's not."

    Ted might not care at the beginning of 'The Lorax,' mainly because he didn't realize what was going on -- but after his enounters with the Once-ler and the Lorax, he will definitely begin to care an "awful lot."

    Furry Peanut

    Video: YouTube

    Woman: "Who invited the giant furry peanut?"
    The Lorax: "Who are you callin' a peanut? I'll go right up your nose!"
    Once-ler: "Whoa! You wouldn't hit a woman."
    The Lorax: "Dat's a woman?!"

    Danny DeVito voices the Lorax character in this movie, and, in typical DeVito fashion, he's hilarious. The Lorax is a grumpy little thing!

    You Have Been Warned

    Video: YouTube

    The Lorax (to the Once-ler): "You have been warned!" (Has trouble reaching the door handle, so Once-ler opens it for him) "Thanks."
    Once-ler: "Yeah okay."
    The Lorax: "You have been warned..."

    More great quotes and humor from the curmudgeonly Lorax. He may be gruff, but he takes his job of protecting the forest (and it's trees) very, very seriously. He's also really short...

    Guy Who Still Cares

    Video: YouTube

    Once-ler: "I didn't think anyone still cared."
    Ted: "Well that's me: The guy who still cares."

    Ted bills himself as the "guy who still cares," but does he? Does he truly understand what's happening?
