Leo: Earth Mother!
Mother: Leo, it's been so long.
Leo: Earth Mother, is there a problem on the mountain?
Mother: I'm afraid so. There's less and less food growing on Mount Moon these days. There's very little left to eat. I came to take some food back. It warms my heart to see all of you doing so well. I know it's hard work protecting the jungle all by yourself, but you need to believe in yourself to lead them. Their all in your care, Leo.

Lune: I agree with you, Dad. Fighting the humans is wrong. Some of them are nice. One of them even saved my life, so they must be good.
Leo: Lune, I'm afraid Pagoola is not entirely wrong. Of course,some men have proven themselves to be kind. Then again, there are those humans who destroy the jungle, and pose a great threat to us.
Lune: Hm?
Leo: However, nothing is achieved through fighting. But if we can't trust them and don't want to fight them. Then what?
Lune: Well... we should make friends with them.
Leo: Uh?
Lune: If we were friends, we could share the world! We could play with them! Isn't that a good idea Dad?
Leo: [laughs] I just hope you get to see that world someday. A world where humans and animals can share their wisdom.
