Alex the Lion[edit]

  • [Marty drives a van] What are you doing? Zebras can't drive, only penguins and people can drive!
  • In order to get home, we will come up with something fresh, something brand new, something never before seen! Off the chain! Something that'll blow that circus promoter away!
  • [After defeating Dubois for the first time] Au revoir, Dubois!

Marty the Zebra[edit]

  • Forget about being part of the herd, I'm gonna be part of the flock. I'm gonna fly, baby!
  • Hi, officer! Is there a problem?

Gloria the Hippo[edit]

  • [when the boys are arguing about leadership] Enough! I'm gonna lead!
  • Me and you! WE GOT THIS!

Melman the Giraffe[edit]

  • I'm on a tightrope!
  • Let's rock!
  • [As an elder, referring to his leg] I lost all feeling in this thing years ago!

Captaine Chantel DuBois[edit]

  • [the telephone rings; DuBois is humming the tune of "Non je ne regrette rien". She picks up the phone] Hmm? Speak. Oui? A zebra? A hippo? A giraffe? A LION?!? [slams the phone; speaks to her four men] When I was seven, I strangled my first parrot, flushed by first goldfish, punched by first snake. Now, I have finally reached ze moment I have been preparing for my entire life. Ze pinnacle of my carrer. To hunt ze king of ze beasts! [shoots a dart at what is shaped like Alex's head]
  • Poor, poor animals. You should have never have left ze forest. Now you deal with ME!
  • Well played lion... Game on!
  • So, you ran away the ze circus. What a cliche.


Vitaly: [when the animals are asking to get on the train] This train is for circus animals only!
Stefano: [Reffering to his act] I've always dreamed to doing this, from the time I was a little pup. To be a human cannonball! Except, you know: A sea lion cannonball.
Gia: Ladies and gentlemen, presenting Gia, The trapeze-flying jaguar!


[the gang looks at a European coastline. Melman gargles]
Alex: What?
Melman: [takes off his snorkel] There it is, the casino.
[Alex gargles]
Marty: What?
Alex: [takes off his snorkel] I said, "Perfect, that's where we'll find the penguins."
[Marty gargles]
Gloria: [takes off her snorkel] What?
[Marty takes off his snorkel and continues gargling]
Alex: Shh! Come on, guys. Operation: Penguin Extraccion does not include levity. We can't draw attention to ourselves, We're invisible! I'm talking really, really quiet.

King Julien XIII: [when on a train; sniffs] Hey, this is not First Class.
Maurice: Definitely coach.
Mort: [scarily] La, la la... La, la la... La, la la
King Julien XIII: Mort! Stop it!
Mort: [giggles]

King Julien XIII: [to Sonya the Bear] Hey, gorgeous. Has anyone ever told you that you look like a supermodel? Albeit a fat hairy one who smells? [Sonya eats him and pulls him out by his tail] WHOA! [Sonya puts Julien on her back] You have a very furry back. I love that in a woman.

[Dubois gets cuffed by an Italian cop after high-jacking their scooters]
Italian Cop #1: You are in a big trouble!
[Dubois shoots the cop with tranquilizer, knocking him out]
Italian Cop #2: Now, you're really in a big trouble!
[Dubois tranquilizes that cop]
Italian Cop #3: Now, you're really REALLY in a big trouble!
[Dubois tranquilizes that cop]
Italian Cop #4: I'm-a new!
[Dubois tries to tranquilize that cop, but is out of darts]

Alex: Mart? Marty?
Marty: Ta-da! [singing the circus song wearing a rainbow afro and polka-dot paint] da da da da da da circus, da da da da da da Afro circus, afro circus, afro, polka dot, polka dot, polka dot afro!
Alex: Really?

Dubois: If I am goin' down, YOUR head is coming with me!
Alex: I don't think so! [whistles]
Jonesy: Oi, Let's go! [he and Frankie blast off]
Alex: You're going down, but not with my head! [the dogs pick Alex up and blast up before he lands in the penguin habitat]
Stefano: Jet pack, he pull up!
Alex:Your days of chasing animals are over, Dubois, because you just messed WITH THE KING! [throws Dubois to his caged habitat and Dubois roars in anger] This is where animals like you belong! Now sit! [Dubois gets shot in the butt with a dart] Lie down! [Dubois lies down, revealing Maurice and Mort; Mort is holding the gun]
Mort: [laughs] Naughty me!
Alex: Roll over. [Dubois rolls over off the rock] Good Dubois. Now stay!
