Favourite Snowy one-liners?

#1 · Posted: 14 Jun 2013 02:41
Hi all,
Sometimes adorable little Snowy says something from a completely different perspective than the rest of the characters (even from a dog's perspective)! He has many great one-liners, for example:

- In Tintin and the Cigars of the Pharaoh, Rastapopoulos says, "One day you'll regret you crossed my path! Just remember: my name is Rastapopoulos!" Tintin looks surprised, but Snowy says, "So what? Who cares?"
- In Tintin in America, while watching the trains, Snowy says, "Here we are like a couple of hobos watching the trains go by..." LOL!
- In Destination Moon,Tintin is looking for the plans for the experimental rocket in the dustbin. Snowy says, "We'd never hear the end of it if I rummaged in a dustbin!" (that line took me off guard and I thought it was cute, and of course a dog would be thinking that way lol.)

So, what are your favourite Snowy one-liners? :-)

I don't know about one-liners, but a scene I always liked was when, in "Blue Lotus", Tintin visits Rastapopoulos in his hotel: the two men greet each other amicably, but Snowy gives Rastapopoulos a nasty look - a hint that Rastapopoulos is not the decent man he purports to be.

I like the scene in Destination Moon where there's brown smoke billowing out of Haddock's room and Snowy says something like, "Well, that's a great start!"

I really like the bit in "Destination Moon" when Snowy says "This is it! Sensational appearance of the Thompson Twins!"

My favorite Snowy one-liner is in Tintin in the Congo when Tintin shoots multiple antelope but after 2 tries, Snowy says "Poor old Tintin! You need practice!" I don't know why I like it so much.

For me, it has to be in The Shooting Star, when Snowy and Tintin go out in their winter furs:

"I'm going to cause a sensation!"
