Hey, she is not some girlǃ She's a woman… in high school… and she loves trees, and I'm gonna get her one.
~ Ted to The Once-Ler
I am Ted Wiggins, and I speak for the trees. And the fact is, things aren't perfect here in Thneedville! And they're only gonna get worse unless we do something about it! Unless we change our ways, and we can start by planting this!
~ Ted Wiggins
