Fox in Socks Cunning and Cleverness Quotes
How we cite our quotes: (Stanza.Line)
Mr. Knox. Now
come now. Come now.
You don't have to
be so dumb now… (41.1-4)
We assume Fox uses dumb as a way to signify the inability to speak and is in no way dissing Knox's intelligence. "We assume" being the key words there.
