- [repeated line] Let's fly!
- Natural instincts [scoffs] There's nothing natural about being thrown halfway across a room. I'll show him.
- Maybe we could find a bus schedule or something?
- Not cool, man! Scary, but not cool!
- And you know what? I hate Zamba!
- Yippie-ki-yay, monkey-man!
- BIRDS VERSUS MONKEYS!
- Hey! that's a little too far.
- [to Blu] You think too much! Flying is not what you think up here, it's what you feel in here!
- I don't know how I got up here, but I ain't never coming down!
- This is the spit!
- [last lines of the film] I LOVE YOU, RIO!
- [singing] I'm a feathery freak with a beak, a bird murderer. You think you're badder than me? I never heard of you!
- I'm not interested in your nicked knick-knacks. Your burgled baubles bore me.
- Ah love, it's such a powerful and stupid thing
- Oh pity. Now we have two useless flightless birds.
- Stop your chirping and talk to me!
- Cheese and sprinkles.
- But Fernando, I trusted you!
- That's my big brave boy.
- We're doomed.
- It's just like riding a snowmobile!
- SQUAWK, SQUAWKETY, SQUAWK, SQUAK! [gasps; covers her mouth, realizing what she said] I'm sorry, I didn't mean to curse.
- I don't understand. Sylvio was the best guard in the business.
- Besides he's got Jewel.
- Jewel: Is there anything else I need to know?
- Blu: Yes. I can't fly, I pick my beak, and once in a while I pee in the birdbath! Happy?
- Linda: You're right. It's not my fault. [She puts on her glasses and lashes out at Tulio] It's your fault…!
- Tulio: What?
- Linda: ...With your little bird talk and that whole "saves the species". Well you know what? SQUAWK, SQUAWKETY, SQUAWK, SQUAWK!!! [realizes what she said; gasps; covers her mouth] I'm sorry, I didn't mean to curse.
- Jewel: [she and Blu are running away from Nigel] Aw, this is great. I'm chained to the only bird in the world who can't fly!
- Blu: Actually, there are 40 species of flightless birds.
- Jewel: [notices a crate] Duck!
- Blu: No, ducks can fly.
- Jewel: No, duck! [Blu notices a crate]
- Blu: You see, who needs flying?
- Jewel: Birds! Birds need flying. Flying is... is freedom, and... and not having to rely on anyone. Don't you want that?
- Blu: Hmm, I don't know. Sounds a little lonely.
- Blu: Yeah, sounds great. It's not like we're just throwing ourselves off of a mountain… right?
- Rafael: Actually, that was pretty much my entire plan.
- Blu: What?!
- Rafael: Don't worry, Blu. It's in your DNA, and if our featherless friends can do it, how hard can it be?
- Man on glider: No, no, wait, wait! [screams] Mommy!
- Rafael: Fun, right?
- Blu: Yeah… fun…
- Mauro: You 2 are coming with me.
- Jewel: In your little monkey dreams. [spits on the ground]
- Blu: Yeah! [tries to spit too, but it sticks to his beak; wipes it off] That was meant for you.
- Rafael: Come on, can't we all just get along?
- Mauro: This isn't your fight, Big Nose!
- [The marmosets laugh, until one bird grabs Mauro's arm and glares at him.]
- Spoonbill: You mess with my friends, you mess with me.
- Other Birds: AND US!
- Pedro: Yeah, little King Kong! [The marmosets and birds have an intense stare-off]
- Little Green Bird: [panicky] I don't know what's going on here! [flies off]
- Pedro: [battle cry] Birds versus monkeys! [The birds charge in.]
- Linda: How do you know?
- Fernando: Because I'm... I'm the one who took them.
- Linda: You?!
- Fernando: I didn't mean to hurt anybody. I needed the money.
- Linda: But, Fernando, I trusted you!
- Fernando: I know, but– [Before he can finish, Tipa and Armando enter]
- Rafael: [flying alongside the trolley, whispering to Blu] Down here! Just tell her, "You have beautiful eyes."
- Blu: That's good, great idea! [to Jewel; confidently] I have beautiful eyes.
- Jewel: Okay...
- Jewel: Whoa, whoa, wait. Luiz... is a bulldog?
- Luiz: You got something against dogs?
- Jewel: I do when they're drooling on me.
- Luiz: It's a medical condition.
- [As she is happily flying, Jewel notices Blu walking away sadly]
- Jewel: Hey, where you going? [Blu ignores her and keeps on walking] Blu? [Blu stops walking] Blu, what's wrong?
- Blu: Nothing. Everything's perfect. You'll be off to the rain forest, I'll be back with Linda. Just like we planned.
- Jewel: I...
- Nico: [he and Pedro fly down towards them] Hey, birds! Stop yapping and start flapping! Let's go!
- Jewel: I... I... I guess I thought maybe...
- Blu: What, that you... you'd come to Minnesota? [Jewel just looks at him] Great, I guess I... I'll knit you a scarf.
- Jewel: No, that's not what I meant.
- Blu: Look, Jewel, I can't spend my life walking around following you wherever you're going.
- Jewel: Hey, it's not my fault you can't fly.
- Pedro: [to Nico as they watch Blu and Jewel] Awkward…
- Rafael: [to Blu and Jewel] Okay, okay. You know what? It's just good. Just clear the air, just be completely honest with each other.
- Blu: You want honesty? [to Rafael and Jewel] Fine, fine, I can be honest. I don't belong here. In fact, I never wanted to even come here in the first place. [stammers] And... and... and you know what? I hate samba! [Jewel and Rafael gasps, and Nico starts crying into Pedro's wing]
- Pedro: Hey! That's a little too far.
- Nico: Make the mean bird take it back!
- Blu: Yeah, I said it. Every song sounds exactly the same! [sings] "Tico, taco ya-ya-ya. Tico, taco ya-ya-ya!" [groans] I'm "tico-taco" out of here.
- Jewel: [angrily] Fine! See you around, pet! [starts flying away from Blu]
- Rafael: No, no! Wait, wait, wait! Come back! You belong together. You are Juliet to his Romeo! Sure, they both die at the end, but you get my point! Oh, young love. Always so melodramatic. [to Nico and Pedro] All right, boys. Go after her. [starts flying to Blu] Blu, come back here, come on!
- Nigel: [catches Jewel as she is flying] Going somewhere, pretty bird?
- Jewel: Oh, yeah! I was just on my way to claw your eyes out! [punches Nigel in the face; Nico and Pedro see Nigel get a hold of Jewel]
- Nigel: Temper, temper. Now come along, my dear. We're going to a parade, and everybody loves a parade! [flies away with Jewel]
- Jewel: Let go of me!
- Pedro: [as he, along with Nico, watch Nigel take Jewel by force] Hey, get back here! Ain't nobody mess with a friend of Pedro. I ain't havin' it! It's on! [starts punching the air]
- Nico: What are you... on?! Did you see the talons on that guy?!
- Pedro: "Talons"? Maybe, it's on... next time. [he and Nico turn and fly away] RALFIEEEE!
- Nico: Blu, help!
- Pedro: Help! [cut on Blu walking to Linda, while Rafael starts following him]
- Blu: Rafael, quit following me. You're going in the wrong direction. Isn't Carnaval that way?
- Rafael: I'm not going to Carnaval. No, I'm going home.
- Blu: But I thought you loved Carnaval.
- Rafael: I do, but I love my family much more, and that's a choice I made with this. [points to Blu's heart] Not with this. [points to Blu's head (or brain)]
