    Help needed with a Winnie the Pooh quote

    I am helping my daughter try to find one of our favorite Winnie the Pooh quotes. It is for a school project that she got yesterday and is due tomorrow. The quote as we remember it is,

    "And that", said Pooh, "is that."

    I've been skimming the two story books and the two poetry books and haven't found anything yet. I'm afraid that it might be one of those quotes that really isn't correct, but something that we've mangled over the years and just think it is a quote because we've repeated it so much.

    I've also tried googling it, but the words are so common that I'm not finding it there.

    If anyone remembers the quote and can point me in the right direction of which book and which story/poem it is, I would highly appreciate it. Thanks.

    Could it be this? From Winnie the Pooh (chapter 8)

    Pooh sat down, dug his feet into the ground, and pushed hard against Christopher Robin's back, and Christopher Robin pushed hard against his, and pulled and pulled at his boot until he had got it on.
    "And that's that," said Pooh. "What do we do next?"
    "We are all going on an Expedition," said Christopher Robin, as he got up and brushed himself. "Thank you, Pooh."
    "Going on an Expotition?" said Pooh eagerly. "I don't think I've ever been on one of those. Where are we going to on this Expotition?"
    "Expedition, silly old Bear. It's got an 'x' in it."
    "Oh!" said Pooh. "I know." But he didn't really.
    "We're going to discover the North Pole."
    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.

    I saw that burntbrat, but I don't think that is it. Thanks for checking.

    Could it be the last line here veej?
    Winnie-the-Pooh Quotes and Ponderings: Page 15
    Us Two

    Wherever I am, there's always Pooh,
    There's always Pooh and Me.
    Whatever I do, he wants to do,
    "Where are you going today?" says Pooh:
    "Well, that's very odd 'cos I was too.
    Let's go together," says Pooh, says he.
    "Let's go together," says Pooh.

    "What's twice eleven?" I said to Pooh,
    ("Twice what?" said Pooh to Me.)
    "I think it ought to be twenty-two."
    "Just what I think myself," said Pooh.
    "It wasn't an easy sum to do,
    But that's what it is," said Pooh, said he.
    "That's what it is," said Pooh.

    "Let's look for dragons," I said to Pooh.
    "Yes, let's," said Pooh to Me.
    We crossed the river and found a few -
    "Yes, those are dragons all right," said Pooh.
    "As soon as I saw their beaks I knew.
    That's what they are," said Pooh, said he.
    "That's what they are," said Pooh.

    "Let's frighten the dragons." I said to Pooh.
    "That's right," said Pooh to Me.
    "I'm not afraid," I said to Pooh,
    And I held his paw and I shouted , "Shoo!
    Silly old dragons!" - and off they flew.
    "I wasn't afraid," said Pooh, said he,
    "I'm never afraid with you."

    So wherever I am, there's always Pooh,
    There's always Pooh and Me.
    "What would I do?" I said to Pooh,
    "If it wasn't for you," and Pooh said: "True,
    It isn't much fun for One, but Two
    Can stick together," says Pooh, says he.
    "That's how it is," says Pooh.

    Unk, that just might be it. It appears that we did mangle it over the years.
