- Bugs and Daffy inadvertently find themselves in the Himalayan Mountains, where they encounter The Abominable Snowman.
[Daffy is trying to tunnel back to Perth Amboy, but hits a blockage in the tunnel]
Daffy Duck: [popping his head out of the snow] All right, what's holding up the works? What's all the... the...
[he looks up to see what's causing the blockage: the abominable snowman's foot]
Daffy Duck: Aah!
Daffy Duck: Poor Bugs. But anyway you look at it, it's better he should suffer. After all, I was me or him, and obviously, it couldn't be me. It's a simple matter of logic. I'm not like other people. I can't stand pain. It hurts me.
Hugo the Abominable Snowman: ...rub him and pet him and squeeze him and rub him I will stroke his bill and rub his pretty feathers... Hey, wait a minute! Bunny rabbits don't have feathers and bills.
Daffy Duck: I know! I know! There goes your bunny rabbit!
Bugs Bunny: Okay, Abom. Here's your bunny rabbit.
Hugo the Abominable Snowman: Duh, bunny rabbit, George?
Daffy Duck: Bunny rabbit? Me?
Bugs Bunny: Yes, you, doc.
Daffy Duck: Ho, ho, very funny. Ha, ha, very droll. Hey, shorty! What do you consider to be the distinguishing characteristics of a rabbit?
Hugo the Abominable Snowman: Distinguishing character, uh...
Daffy Duck: Yeah, yeah! What makes a rabbit look like a rabbit?
Hugo the Abominable Snowman: Why, duh, duh, long ears!
Daffy Duck: And whom around here has long ears? Sorry to have to do this to you, bud.
Bugs Bunny: [has tied down his ears and sticks two fingers behind Daffy's head] Eh. Don't give it a second thought.
Hugo the Abominable Snowman: [grabs Daffy] Oh, boy! Just like I always wanted! My own little bunny rabbit.
Bugs Bunny: They really do make a charming couple.
