Ferngully: The Last Rainforest is a 1992 animated film that follows Zak, a young slacker working for a logging team cutting down trees in the rainforest. Little do they know that they are coming close to a magical place called FernGully, and its fairy inhabitants. Crysta, a young fairy with slight magic ability, shrinks Zak to fairy-size, and together they fight to save the home that is threatened by logging and a polluting force of destruction called Hexxus, who the loggers accidentally release from his twisted-tree prison.

There's a part of you that will always stay. Remember, Zak. Remember everything.


  • I wish... I wish the human tales were true! They're not here to protect the forest. They're cutting down trees. They're destroying the forest! And I was helping them do it. Batty was right. They're coming this way. You can't stop them! You all have to leave.
  • [as he leaves with Tony and Ralph] Guys, things have got to change.
  • [to Pips] Keep the stereo, dude.

Batty Koda[edit]

  • Humans don't feel anything. They're numb from the brain down.
  • Awesome use of the language, dude.
  • [hits a tree] Red Light! [hits a second tree] Red light again!
  • I have but one claw... but beware!
  • Delicious and nutritious, tastes just like chicken!
  • Human tales? Humans don't HAVE tails. They have big big bottoms in bad shorts! They walk around going "Hi, Helen!"
  • For a minute I thought you said you were going to Mount Warning.
  • Oh, gravity works.
  • Why do I not believe you?
  • It's Darwin's grab-bag!
  • You know, Zak, truth doesn't always win friends, but it certainly influences people. You're not half-bad for a hominid.
  • Well, alright, gummy! We're goin' to war!


  • There are worlds within worlds, Crysta. Everything in our world is connected by the delicate strands of the web of life, which is a balance between the forces of destruction and the magical forces of creation.
  • The humans have released Hexxus. Gather everyone in the circle.


  • Mmm. Delicious. A first class smoke. Mother's milk. What is this delightful thing? And how did I get out of that tree? Of course! Humans. What wonderful creatures. So clever, so helpful. I must take this human thing to... FernGully!
  • [crawls to the Leveler's engine to absorb power] HIT ME ONE TIME...HIT ME TWICE! [absorbs energy as he grows into true form; grunts and moans satisfyingly] That's rather nice.


Crysta: Are you OK?
[Zak has discovered that Crysta has shrunk him]
Zak: AAH! What happened to me?! I'm-I'm three inches tall!
Crysta: Oh... I shrank you.
Zak: You what?!
Crysta: Well, it was the most amazing thing. 'Course it's not really what the spell's supposed to do... But Magi Lune will fix you!
Zak: [Incredulous] You... you shrank me?!
Crysta: Yeah.
Batty: Catches on quick, doesn't he?
Crysta: We better buzz off. It's getting late.
Zak: Buzz off?! I'm not buzzing anywhere! Now un-shrink me, and I mean now!
Crysta: Well, I guess I could take a bash at it.
Zak: "Take a bash"?!
Crysta: Actually, I'm just sort of learning.
Zak: [Does a facepalm] Great! I've be shrank by an amateur! I don't believe this. Okay, okay, c'mon! Bash away!

[Tony and Ralph are cutting down the tree containing Hexxus; this causes the Leveler to shake violently]
Tony: What is that?
Ralph: Hey Ton', you think the Leveler can handle this baby?
Tony: Sure, the Leveler eats everything.
Ralph: Kinda like you.
Tony: [grabs Ralph] How many times a day I gotta threaten your life?

Hexxus: New orders, boys. You're going to FernGully. And I want you there by morning.
Tony: By morning?! Oh, I don't know if we can do that.
Hexxus: You'll just have to work harder, then. Double shifts. No breaks.
Tony: No breaks?!
Hexxus: And make sure you've got plenty of oil!
Tony: Roger that. We'll give it a gas.
Ralph: Hey, Ton'... you know what this means.
Tony: Yeah. [chuckles] Beaucoup overtime!
Hexxus: Oh, what a miraculous device. [chuckles] I'm really getting the hang of this! I do believe we are destined to be soulmates.

Crysta: What are the trees like where you live?
Zak: Not like this. I live in a city.
Crysta: Ci-dy?
Zak: Yeah, you know... buildings, traffic, cars, lights - a city. Most humans live in cities. There's not many trees there.
Crysta: But how can you live without trees?
Zak: Easy.
Crysta: Well, trees give life. They make the clouds, the rain, the air.
Zak: We've got air.
Batty Koda: Yeah, if you don't mind getting all your minerals in one breath. [coughs loudly]

[Zak and Crysta have just come on dry land after swimming in the grotto]
Crysta: Well, I suppose I'd better find Magi and get you un-shrunk.
Zak: There's no hurry.
Crysta: No; I promised.
Zak: Wait 'til tomorrow. Come here.
Crysta: No, I've got to tell her about you anyway. [spins around like a tornado and water flies off her and onto Zak] Wait here; I'll be back as soon as I can find her.

Batty Koda: Nobody cares about me.
Zak: I do, bat man.
Batty Koda: Are you sure?
Zak: I'm positive.
Batty Koda: Only fools are positive.
Zak: Are you sure?
Batty Koda: I'm positive- I fell for it! I should have known!

Crysta: Well, come on.
Batty Koda: My heart! [gasps] Oh my heart! I can't go on! I don't think my little wings can make it!
Crysta: Hmmm, maybe you should wait here for me.
Batty Koda: This is a fabulous idea. I really think we should fly with that, only, why don't you stay here with me?
Crysta: It's okay, really. I'll be right back.
Batty Koda: Why do I not believe you?

Crysta: [about a tree] Can't you feel it's pain?
Zak: [Confused] It's pain?
Batty: Humans can't feel anything. They're numb from the brain down.

Crysta: Ow!!
Zak: Careful!

Batty: This is the last time I save you, human!
Zak: No! No, Batty! Batty, take me back to the leveler!
Batty: Are you crazy?! That's lemming talk!
Zak: Wrong channel! [smacks Batty's wire]
Batty: O Caesar, emperor of Rome!
Batty: Well, alright, gummy! We're goin' to war!
Zak: Yes! That's it! Back to the cap, Batty! Let's go!

[After Hexxus is defeated]
Crysta: We did it, Zak. Now Hexxus can never harm FernGully again.
Zak: But humans still could. That's why I have to go back. There's a part of me that really wants to stay.
Crysta: There's a part of you that will always stay. [Gives him a seed] Remember, Zak. Remember everything.
