Quotes and dialogues

BORIS: Let me tell you something, Balto. A dog cannot make this journey alone. But maybe a wolf can. Right, you two balls of fluff! Let's move! Hey! Two, three, four! TELEGRAPH OPERATOR: Nome. Stop. Cannot send more antitoxin. Stop. Weather too severe. Stop. Lost sled team only hope. Stop. Our prayers are with them. Anchorage. Stop. BALTO: Steele. Oh! STAR: Balto! NIKKI: Is that Balto? KALTAG: How did you find us? BALTO: Is anyone hurt? STEELE: Everyone is fine. STAR: Yeah, but our mushier hit his head and he didn't get up. NIKKI: And he's not movin'. BALTO: All right, follow me. I can lead you home. STEELE: We don't need your help! STAR: Maybe we should listen to him. KALTAG: How would you get us home? BALTO: Well, I marked the trail, like this. STAR: Oh! Yeah! STEELE: I'll get us back. I'm the lead dog. I'm in charge. BALTO: Then let me take back the medicine. They're getting sicker. STEELE: Touch that box and I'll tear you apart. NIKKI: Two bones says Steele takes him. KALTAG: You're on. BALTO: Steele, I'm not leaving without that medicine. STEELE: Who do you think you are? NIKKI: Hey, this is gonna be good. BALTO: Since when do you need a pedigree to help someone? Steele. Let me help you. NIKKI: Look at his eyes! KALTAG: He'll feel that tomorrow. NIKKI: I think he is feeling it now! Ouch! BALTO: I don't want to fight. NIKKI: Whoa! That can't be legal! KALTAG: Yeah! NIKKI: Hey! That stuff is fragile! STAR: What's with Steele? All Balto wants to do is help. ALL: Ah! Look! MUSHER: Oh, good boy. Mush! STEELE: Go ahead, wolf-dog! You'll never get home! I'll make sure of that. I'll show 'em. Why not this way? How about over here? Oops! Wrong way! BALTO: Oh, no. STAR: Which way, Balto, which way? Which way? BALTO: Uh, this way. KALTAG: Balto! Why are you taking us in circles? BALTO: I'm not! I mean, I don't know. It's Steele. NIKKI: Maybe we was better off with him there. BALTO: No! Come on. Mush! STAR: Balto, slow down! Wait... Uhh! NIKKI: Hey! Hey! Goin' too fast! MUSHER: Look out! KALTAG: All right! Good catch, Balto!

References

This film's sequel Balto II: Wolf Quest (2002) is also a wolf dog hybrid-themed animated film.

When Steele brings a string of sausage links by to woo Jenna, he suggests she start on one end and he on the other and that they meet in the middle and see where it goes, putting aside what he's getting at, he's clearly trying to recreates the spaghetti-eating scene from Lady and the Tramp (1955).

Boris is rarely seen flying, even when it would be helpful to do so. In the third film, Balto III: Wings of Change (2004), it's finally explained that he is a literal acrophobic bird.

The steam engine waiting at the Nenana depot is from the Alaska Railroad. Because of a storm, the Alaska Railroad was only able to send the serum from Anchorage to Nenana.

The final animated feature produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblimation animation studio, before he co-founded DreamWorks with David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg. Most of the Amblimation staff were re-located to DreamWorks Animation.
