Nos Vulpes vulpes

Vos Canis lupis

Mr. Fox on a motorcycle with Ash, Kris, and Kylie speaking to a wolf off on a distant ridge.

Mr. Fox: Where did you come from? What are you doing here? [to the others] I don’t think he speaks English or Latin. [to the wolf] Pensez-vous que l’hiver sera rude? [to the others] I’m asking if he thinks we’re in for a hard winter. [to the wolf] I have a phobia of wolves.

Through all this, the wolf has not responded.

Mr. Fox: What a beautiful creature. [to the others] Wish him luck boys.

Mr Fox raises his paw. The wolf mirrors the gesture in solidarity.
