Brother Bear is a 2003 American animated musical fantasy comedy-drama film from Walt Disney Pictures about an Inupiat boy who pursues a Alaskan brown bear in revenge for a battle that he provoked in which his oldest brother is killed. He tracks down the bear and kills it, but the Spirits, angered by this needless death, change the boy into a bear himself to gain perspective.

Directed by Aaron Blaise and Robert Walker. Written by Tab Murphy, Lorne Cameron, David Hoselton, Steve Bencich and Ron J. Friedman.
Nature Calls.


Kenai: Yeah, I'll probably get like a sabertooth tiger for bravery or strength or greatness. You know, something that fits me.
Denahi: How about a mammoth for your fat head? Just make sure you get that basket tied up.
Kenai: Don't worry. No stupid bear's gonna get anywhere near this fish.
Denahi: Just tie it up.
Kenai: [under his breath] "Just tie it up."
Man: She's back! Hey, everybody! Tanana's back!
Sitka: Come on!
Child: Come on, Kenai, let's go!
Kenai: Come on, come on.
Child: Tanana's got your rock! Come on!
[Kenai quickly ties up the basket and runs off, only for the basket to fall and break]

[After Kenai recieves his totem]
Denahi: There he is.
Kenai: [moans in annoyance] Ohh.
Denahi: Ha ha! Come here, loverboy.
Kenai: Uhh. Leave me alone.
Denahi: Aw, Kenai, wait.
Kenai: Uhh.
Denahi: I'm sorry.
Kenai: What?
Denahi: Your totem: I think it's really great.
Kenai: You do?
Denahi: Yeah. And I made you something.
Kenai: [smiling] Really?
Denahi: [throws flowers on Kenai's head] Now when you skip around loving everybody, you'll smell so sweet.
[Kenai pushes the flowers back to Denahi]
Sitka: Well, isn't this nice? Instead of fighting, you're giving each other flowers.
Denahi: Yeah, isn't it lovely? He's so in touch with his totem already.
Kenai: Uhh!
Sitka: Hey, dog breath, go take care of the fish.
Denahi: Sure. Kenai loves me, he loves me not. Kenai loves me, he loves me not. Kenai loves me, he loves me not. [Kenai picks up a rock and preps to throw it at Denahi]
Sitka: [grabs Kenai's hand before he throws the rock] Kenai.
Kenai: Someday I'm gonna just-- He's just such a--
Sitka: Hey, bonehead. Just because his totem is wisdom doesn't mean he's wise. I mean, look at him.
Denahi: Kenai loves me, he loves me not. Kenai loves me, he loves me not. [accidentally steps on a dog's tail and the dog yelps and barks] Hey! Whoa!
People: Hi, Denahi.
Denahi: Oh, hi. Heh-heh. [the dog growls and bites his butt, offscreen] Aah! [Kenai and Sitka cringe] Let go!
Kenai: Yeah. I guess the spirits messed up on both of our totems.
Sitka: You know, I felt the same way when Tanana gave me mine.
Kenai: Get out of here.
Sitka: No, really. I said, "The Eagle of Guidance? What does that mean?" [chuckles] But now that I'm older, I know it's about being a leader, and keeping an eye on you two.
Kenai: I just want to get my handprint on that wall.
Sitka: Just be patient, Kenai. When you live by your totem, you will.
Kenai: Really?
Sitka: Guarantee it. [he and Kenai high-five]
Kenai: But come on, the Bear of Love? I mean a bear doesn't love anyone they don't think, they don't feel, I mean they're-- [people chatter at the fish trail] They're thieves.
Denahi: You didn't tie it off, did you?
Kenai: Uh-- [chuckles nervously]
Denahi: You should've got the totem of pinheads!
Sitka: Knock it off. We'll just make another basket.
Denahi: We? Oh, no. No. It took me 2 weeks to make that basket. You get lover-boy to do it. [Kenai scowls] He's the one that's messing things up all the time. Typical Kenai.
Kenai: [holding a spear] All right. I'll go get your basket.
Sitka: Kenai, wait. Kenai!
Denahi: [Sitka looks at him angrily] [confused] What?

Kenai: [kicking tree branches out of anger; Kenai hears a growl, and sees a bear. He throws a rock near the bear, catching its attention. He throws another rock at the bear's head]
Sitka: [offscreen] Kenai! [the bear roars angrily] Kenai! Where'd he go?
Denahi: If we're lucky, far away. Huh.
[Kenai screams, as he dangles over the edge of a glacier]
Denahi: Kenai! [he and Sitka run to him]
Kenai: Sitka, no! You got to get out of here!
Sitka: What?
Kenai: The bear! Look behind you! [the bear roars viciously]
Sitka: [alarmed] Aah!
[While the bear roars, Denahi throws a rock at the bear]
Denahi: Hey, bear, come on! [the bear turns to him] Over here! Come on, bear! Come this way!
Kenai: Uhh. [Roaring; Sitka pulls Kenai up, and runs to hold off the bear. The ice fractures, and Denahi falls in.]
Denahi: Aah!
Kenai: [running over] Denahi! Uhh! Hold on! Come on, pull!
Denahi: Uhh!
[The bear knocks Sitka over as he pants. The bear approaches Kenai and Denahi]
Kenai: [struggling to pull Denahi up] Unh!
[Sitka sees the ice begin to crack and stabs the ice with his spear, causing the ice to crack more, and the bear moans in alarm]
Kenai: [alarmed] Sitka. Sitka! [the ice breaks apart and the bear and Sitka fall in the water]
Denahi: Sitka?
[the bear comes out of the water, and walks back to the land. It roars and runs off. Kenai and Denahi jump into the water to search for Sitka]
Kenai: Come on! Sitka!
Denahi: Sitka!
Kenai: Sitka. Sitka!
Denahi: Sitka!
Kenai: Sitka, where are you?!
Denahi: [gasps in alarm] Kenai!
[Kenai finds the hood of Sitka's top floating in the water]
Kenai: [sadly] No. [desperately] Sitka! Sitka! Help us find you! Sitka! Sitka, where are you?! Sitka!

[After Sitka's funeral pyre, Kenai approaches Denahi, wielding two spears]
Kenai: Are you ready?
Denahi: For what?
Kenai: We're going after the bear. [Throws Denahi a spear, and he catches it]
Denahi: [slight pause] I know how you're feeling, but... but killing that bear is wrong. [he drops the spear]
Kenai: [dumbfounded] Wrong? Our brother is dead, and it's because of that monster.
Denahi: I don't blame the bear, Kenai.
[Kenai seems hurt at Denahi's words. Denahi turns away]
Kenai: [scowling] I see.
Denahi: [trying to grab the spear from Kenai] Killing that bear won't make you a man.
Kenai: [getting defensive] Oh, now you're trying to be wise!
Denahi: I'm trying to follow my totem, why can't you do the same?!
Kenai: [stammering] You really think love has anything to do with being a man?! A man wouldn't just sit here and do nothing.

[Denahi sees Kenai's clothes ripped, and he thinks Kenai died]
Denahi: [in thought] I don't blame the bear, Kenai.
[Denahi stands up and walks away.]
Kenai: [in thought] A man wouldn't just sit here and do nothing.

Tuke: What are they getting worked up about?
Rutt: Gee, I don't know. Maybe the goose pooped on 'em, eh?
[Both Moose laughs]
Tuke: [panicking] Oh, gee. I think they're looking over here. Let's beat it. This way. [runs to his left]
Rutt: [panicking] No, no, no, this way. [runs to his right]
[Then both banged and got each other's antlers stuck]
Tuke: Oh, thank you very much.
Rutt: J-Just stay still and--
Kenai: [runs toward them] Hey, you two!
[Both Moose gasps]
Tuke: Head down. Head down!
[Both get their heads down for cover under the tree log]
Rutt: [whispers] Oh, gee! I think they seen us! Now what?
Tuke: [whispers] Act like we're not here.
Rutt: Oh. Ah, we're not here!
Tuke: Shh! [whispers] What are you doing, eh?!
Rutt: [whispers] Will you said to--
Tuke: [whispers] Don't say anything.
Rutt: [still whispers] Okay!
Tuke: [still whispers] I said, "Don't say anything"!
Kenai: Um, excuse me.
[The startled Mooses fell back screaming]
Tuke: Please don't eat us!
Rutt: You wouldn't like us, eh. We're really gamey.
Tuke: Ya... eat hoof-for-brains over there.
Rutt: Oh nice, eh. Pine-cone breath!
Tuke: Crusty tail!
Rutt: Twig legs!
Tuke: Big nose! [Rutt gasps] ... sorry.
Rutt: You went too far that time.
Tuke: Okay, I'm sorry.
Kenai: Guys.
Tuke: Besides, yours is bigger than mine.
Kenai: [move the antlers off the side] I'm not eating anybody.
Tuke: [calmly] Oh, whew! [laughs] That's mighty decent of you, eh.
Rutt: Yeah. Hey, my name's Rutt. This my brother, Tuke.
Tuke: How's it going, bear?
Kenai: [scoffs] Don't call me that.
Tuke: Oh, sorry, [stammers] Mr. Bear?
Kenai: No! I mean, I'm not a bear. I hate bears.
Rutt: Well, gee, eh, you're one big beaver. [laughs]
Tuke: No kidding?
Kenai: [about the spirits] Do either of you know where the lights touch the earth?
Rutt: Yee...ahh... No. Uh, no. Sorry, bear, or beaver.
Kenai: I'm not a beaver. I'm a bear. No, I mean, I'm not a bear. I'm a man!
[Tuke spits out, laughs surprised]
Rutt: Excuse me?
Kenai: I was transformed into a bear, magically. I was lifted into the sky by my brother.
Tuke: Uh-huh. [turns to Rutt, fake cough] You're crazy!
Rutt: Gesundheit.
Tuke: [fake cough] No, a fruitcake!
Rutt: Are you, okay?
Tuke: [fake cough] No, that bear over there! He's crazy!
Kenai: [angrily] I am NOT crazy!
Tuke: Well, who ever said you were? We understand.
Kenai: You do?
Tuke: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Well-- Well, you see, we're not moose, either.
Rutt: We're-- We're not?
Tuke: No. Heh. We're like, uh... We're like squirrels. Yeah.
Rutt: Oh. Oh, yeah! Beauty, eh? Well, yeah, well, he... he's actually the squirrel. I'm-- I'm more of a pure-bred wolverine. Look at these cuspids. Rrrr!
Tuke: Give him a little room.
Kenai: [groans] Why am I even talking to a couple of dumb moose?
Tuke: No, we're squirrels, eh?
Rutt: Wolverine.
Kenai: I'll find it myself.
Rutt: Oh, I wouldn't go that way.
Tuke: Why not, eh?
Rutt: Uh, well, there was a reason.
Tuke: Well you brought it up.
Rutt: I'm trying to, but you're talking--
[Kenai shouts is caught in a snare, grunting and the moose watch him bounce around with the rope of the tree]
Tuke: So, you think of it yet? [leaves]
Rutt: Well, uh, no, but it's driving me nuts, too, eh? [leaves]

Koda: [looking at his reflection through ice] Skinny! Fat! Skinny! Fat!
Kenai: Hey, I've got a mountain to get to. Come on, kid.
Koda: I told you before. My name's Koda. Say it with me. Ko-da!
Kenai: Are you sure your mom didn't ditch you, Ko-duh?
Koda: Hmph.

[Koda tries to tell Kenai a story]
Kenai: [interrupting] Oh it sounds great, you should save it!
Koda: You think so?
Kenai: Oh, yeah. For your friends.

Koda: Mom says the spirits make all the magical changes in the world, like how the leaves change color, or how the moon changes shape, or tadpoles change into frogs--
Kenai: Yeah, I get it. You know, for a change, maybe they could just leave things alone.
Koda: What do you mean?
Kenai: My brother's a spirit, and if it wasn't for him, I... I wouldn't be here.
Koda: You have a brother up there? What happened to him?
Kenai: He was killed by a b-- By a monster.
Koda: What's your brother's name?
Kenai: Sitka.
Koda: Thanks, Sitka. If it weren't for you, I would have never met Kenai. I always wanted a brother.

Koda: I'm sorry we're lost, OK? Even though it's pretty much your fault.
Kenai: My fault?! Ugh! That's it.
Koda: Just remember, if it weren't for me, you'd still be hanging upside down right now.
Kenai: Better than being stuck in the middle of nowhere with you and your blabbing mouth. [angrily mocking Koda] "I'm lost. I can't find my mommy. Will you take me to the salmon run?" [angrily yells at Koda] Why don't you just grow up?
Koda: Fine. I'll just go on my own, then.
Kenai: Fine. Go ahead.
Koda: Fine.
Kenai: Fine.
Koda: Fine.

Ram 1: It's go time! [locks horns with the other ram]
Ram 2: You wanna go?!
Ram 1: Yeah.
Ram 2: Well, bring it on!
Ram 1: Horns up!
Ram 2: [sees Kenai and Koda] Whoa, whoa, hold up.
Kenai: Excuse me!
Ram 2: What do you want?! [echoes] What was that? Who was that?
Ram 1: Uh, just a minute, bear. [to the sky] HEY, SHUT UP! [echoes] NO, YOU SHUT UP! [echoes]
Ram 2: [to the sky] No, you shut up! [echoes]
Ram 1: HEY, WILL YOU SHUT UP?! [echoes] JUST SHUT UP!!! [echoes]
Koda: Heh. I think their horns are screwed on too tight. [he and Kenai laugh]

Kenai: Koda, there's...something I ought to-- You know that story you told me last night?
Koda: Yeah.
Kenai: Well, I have a story to tell you.
Koda: Really? What's it about?
Kenai: Well, it's kind of about a man and kind of about a bear. But mostly, it's about a monster. A monster who did something very bad...
Phil Collins: [singing] Everywhere I turn, I hurt someone. But there's nothing I can say to change the things I've done. I'd do anything within my power, I'd give everything I've got. But the path I seek is hidden from me now.
Kenai: [on the verge of tears] Koda? I’ve done something very wrong.
Phil Collins: [singing] Brother bear, I’ve let you down.
Koda: [sounding scared] I don’t like this story.
Phil Collins: [singing] You trusted me, believed in me, and I let you down.
Kenai: [sadly and quietly] Your mother’s not coming.
[Koda looks down and up with tears in his eyes]
Koda: [crying] No... no!! [starts to run off in the snow]

Koda: Ahem. In accordance with all federal and state wildlife regulations, no fish were harmed during the making of this film.
Fish: [screams in fear while being chased by a bear] No! He's gonna eat me! [screams]
Koda: [chuckles] Cut. Cut.
Fish: Somebody help me!
Koda: Ooh! [bear belches]
