The scene in the animated classic, "Bambi", when the young friends make a childish vow. Thanks to Internet Movie Database for the quotes :)

Flower [about two birds fluttering around]: Well! What's the matter with them?

Thumper: Why are they acting that way?

Friend Owl: Why, don't you know? They're twitterpatted.

Flower, Bambi, Thumper: Twitterpatted?

Friend Owl: Yes. Nearly everybody gets twitterpatted in the springtime. For example: You're walking along, minding your own business. You're looking neither to the left, nor to the right, when all of a sudden you run smack into a pretty face. Woo-woo! You begin to get weak in the knees. Your head's in a whirl. And then you feel light as a feather, and before you know it, you're walking on air. And then you know what? You're knocked for a loop, and you completely lose your head!

Thumper: Gosh, that's awful.

Flower: Gee whiz.

Bambi: Terrible!

Friend Owl: And that ain't all. It could happen to anyone, so you'd better be careful.

[points at Bambi]

Friend Owl: It could happen to you…

[points at Thumper]

Friend Owl: … or you, or even...

[Flower looks at Owl shyly]

Friend Owl: Yes, it could even happen to you!

Thumper: Well, it's not gonna happen to me.

Bambi: Me neither.

Flower: Me neither.
