Fox in Socks Transformation Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Stanza.Line)

Quote #1

Knox in box. Fox in socks. (2.1-2)

Just look at Knox's face in these early pictures—so happy, so content with the ease of the game. He has no idea what's about to hit.

Quote #2

Please, sir. I don't
like this trick, sir.
My tongue isn't
quick or slick, sir. (13.1-4)

Knox reveals his lack of confidence in his skills by blaming his tongue. Yeah, it's his tongue's fault. Right…

Quote #3

Mr. Fox, sir,
I won't do it.
I can't say it.
I won't chew it. (30.1-4)

Like the Big Guy from Green Eggs and Ham, Knox doesn't find Fox's tongue twisters to his liking. But how will he know if he doesn't try them?
