6 years ago, they disappeared without a trace. Next summer, they finally resurface (taglines)

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!
  • It was always impossible, Vitaly. That's why the people loved it.
  • Your days of chasing animals are over, Dubois, because you just messed with the king!

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]
  • [from trailer, while slapping the hotel owner with his hand] You fool! How could you let them get away?!
  • Poor, poor animals. You should have never have left ze forest. Now you deal with ME!
  • Voila! Giraffe, at 12:00.
  • Well played lion... Game on!
  • So, you ran away the ze circus. What a cliche.
  • Attention! I have found the lion! He is hiding with the circus!
  • It was never about the money. It was about...ze lion.


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.

Hotel Security: Captain Dubois, I am so happy to see you! You will not believe--
Dubois: [grabbing the hotel owner and angrily slaps him with his hand] Get back, you fool! Your cheap cologne is obscuring the animal musk!
Hotel Security: Oh, my face!

Vitaly: Which one of you is leader?
[Marty points at Alex]
Vitaly: Tell your comrades there is ONE rule we do not break!
Alex: Thou shall say it, and not spray it?
Vitaly: NYET! Circus owner no allow stowaways!

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: Mort! Stop it!
Mort: [giggles]

Julien: [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]

Marty: Ta-da!
Alex: Mart? Marty?
Marty: [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?

[in an Italian prison, the Comandante and two guards walk into Dubois' cell, where Dubois seems to be asleep in bed]
Comandante: Captain Chantal Dubois, get up! You are going back to Monte Carlo under maximum security. [no response; Comandante silently orders one of the guards to uncover the sheets, revealing a bunch of pillows] What?! It's just a pillow!
Guard: That's the oldest trick in the book, Comandante! Every Bambino in-a Italy knows-a that one!
Comandante: [shoves the pillow into the arms of the guard] Maybe, but do the know about the old escape hole behind the innocent-looking poster?! [tears the poster off the wall, only to reveal that Dubois had drawn arrows, a kissing mark and the word "Stupido" on a mirror with lipstick] Or the really old "I'm-Gonna-Hide-Up-in-the-Ceiling" trick! [blindly shoots at the ceiling with his gun, plaster falls and hits him on the head]
Guard: [whistles and points to a whole under Dubois' bed]
Comandante: Of course! The secret-a tunnel under the bed! Get this thing out of the way! [the guards move the bed, revealing the "escape tunnel"] Let's go!
[as Comandante and the two guards jump into the hole, it's revealed the Dubois was really hiding in the bed as she cut a hole out with a knife]
Comandante: This tunnel is a dead end!
Guard: There's nothing but bed-springs and a mattress's stuffing down here!
[Dubois leaves the cell and slams the door]
Comandante: Was that the sound of a cell door closing?

[Gia, Stefano, Vitaly, and the circus animals look at the paper with the words "Famous Central Park Zoo Lion Missing" and the picture of Alex on it]
Gia: Alex? You are from a zoo?
[Alex and his friends look at them in shock]
Alex: Yes. Yes. But wait, there's more.
Gia: More?
Alex: Or less. There's less.
Vitaly: You were never circus?
Gloria: We... We had to say we were circus.
Melman: Or you'd never let us on the train!
Gia: After all we have been through together, you want to go live in a zoo?
Alex: Gia, I...
Vitaly: You used us.
Alex: No, no, no! I mean - I mean yes but...
Gia: Trapeze americano, you make that up, too?
Alex: It didn't exactly exist when I taught it to you.
Gia: [angry] Ohhh! Jet packs and aquatic cobras! I should've known.
Stefano: Balloons to the children of the world was not real, either?
Alex: Yeah, that's not real. But look at what we did.
Stefano: I was shot out of a cannon! I could have died!
Marty: But I thought it was your lifelong dream.
Stefano: For all I know, your name is not even Alice.
Alex: No, Stefano, but it never really was,
Stefano: I don't feel safe! [Stefano cries in Gia's arms as Vitaly looks at Alex and his friends, feeling betrayed and hurt]
Alex: Gia, I...
Gia: [heartbroken] We trusted you.
Stefano: My tears are real! You are not!
[Alex, Marty, Melman, and Gloria stand there in depression, feeling ashamed of themselves about lying to their friends and hurting their feelings]
Skipper: I can't believe you lied to all us circus folk.

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!
