  • [Young Tarzan]: I'll be the best ape ever!


  • [trying to get the paper back from the Manu the baby baboon] Oh, come on, now. Enough of this. I want this paper on the count of three. One, two... Oh, look! Bananas! [as Manu is distracted, Jane swipes the paper from him and laughs] Oh, I can't believe you feel for that one. [Manu begins to cry] No, no, don't give me those crocodile tears. What would your parents have to say? [notices a troop of baboons looking at her menacingly] [nervously] Oh. You see? I told you they'd be cross. [to the other baboons] Go easy on him. Children will be children. [the baboons start chasing her]


  • [when she, Tantor, and other gorillas are at the campsite] What kind of primitive beasts are responsible for this mess?


  • [Young Tantor; sees Tarzan in the water] Piranha! It's a piranha!
  • [Young Tantor; staring at the water] Are you sure this water's sanitary? [Steps into water, then yanks foot back out] It looks questionable to me!
  • [Young Tantor] But what about bacteria?
  • [as Terk and Tarzan wrestle] It's all fun and games till someone loses an eye!
  • [after hearing Clayton's gunshot] It wasn't me, I swear.

Professor Porter[edit]

  • [Jane imitates the screams of the monkeys] Now that's theropithecus baboonus, she's very good at this.
  • [about Jane] She takes after her mother, you know. She came up with stories like that. Not about men in loincloths, of course...
  • [about Tarzan] Look at him, Jane. Moves like an ape, but looks like a man. He could be the missing link!
  • Oh, those magnificent creatures, shivering in cages... What is this world COMING TO?! [angrily hits the wall; the whole boat tips as Tantor climbs on outside] Oh, by Jove! Don't know my own strength.


  • Professor, you are here to find gorillas. Not indulge some girlish fantasy!
  • If I can teach a parrot to sing "God Save the Queen", I can certainly teach this savage a thing or two.
  • Women! Even if you hadn't grown up a savage, you'd be lost. There are no trails through a woman's heart.
  • [as Kerchak is restrained] Aah! I remember you. [taking aim] I think this one would be better off stuffed.
  • [pursuing Tarzan into the trees] Hiding, are we?! Good! I could use a challenge, because after I get rid of you, rounding up your little ape family will be all too easy!!


[Tarzan gets ready to scare Kala behind her back]
Kala: Don't even think about it.
Tarzan: How'd you know it was me?
Kala: I'm your mother. I know everything. Now, where have you been?
Tarzan: I thought you knew everything.
[Terk pounces on him]
Terk: Hey, Auntie K! You look remarkably groomed today!

Tantor: Y'know, I've been thinking lately that Tarzan might be some subspecies of elephant.
Terk: What are you, crazy? An elephant?!
Tantor: Listen to me. Think about it. He enjoys a peanut, I enjoy a peanut.
Terk: He looks nuthin' like ya!

Clayton: [clears his throat] Where are the gorillas? [Tarzan plays with his mustache] GO-REE-LUHZ!!!!
Tarzan: [imitating Clayton] GO-REE-LUHZ!!!!
Jane: Shouting won't help, Mr. Clayton. He doesn't understand English.
Clayton: Then I'll make him understand. If I can teach a parrot to sing "God save the Queen", I can certainly teach this savage a thing or two. [draws a crude gorilla on Jane's chalkboard and points to it with the chalk] Gorilla.
Tarzan: [takes the chalk and examines it] Gor-illa!
Professor Porter: [excited] Oh! Oh! He's got it!
Tarzan: Gor-illa! [proceeds to scribble wildly on the chalkboard] Gorrrrr-illllla!
Professor Porter: Oh, perhaps not...
Clayton: [grabs chalk] No! No no no no! [Tarzan grabs the chalk back]
Tarzan: [imitating Clayton] No! No no no no! [they both bicker and fight over the chalk until Jane grabs it]
Jane: Mr. Clayton, I think I'll take it from here.

Tarzan: Terk, all you have to do is get Kerchak out of the way.
Terk: What?!
Tantor: Well, I'd be happy to get Kerch--
Terk: [Grabs Tantor's trunk to shut him up] Hey! Shut your trunk, and get me outta here! [Tantor does so] Can you believe that guy? Drops us like a newborn giraffe - kerplop! - now waltzes in here and expects us to just-- [Tarzan lands in front of her]
Tarzan: Terk, I'm asking you as a friend.
Terk: [Grimacing at Tarzan's pleading face] Argh... Aah... with the face and the eyes and the... AH! All right! But don't make me do anything embarrassing. [Cut to Terk bursting out of the bushes in Jane's dress] I'M GONNA KILL HIM!!!!
Tantor: [with his trunk disguised has Professor Porter] Actually, I thought that dress was rather slimming on you.
Terk: Oh, really? I thought it was a little revealing...
[they both hear Kerchak's roar and run]

Clayton: Sorry for the rude welcome, old boy, but I couldn't have you making a scene when we put your furry friends in their cages!
Tarzan: Why?
Clayton: Why? For £300 sterling a head. Actually, I have you to thank, old boy. Couldn't have done it without you.

Tantor: I've never felt so alive!
Terk: Good! 'Cause I'm gonna kill ya!

[Kerchak is on the verge of death]
Tarzan: Kerchak, forgive me.
Kerchak: No. Forgive me, for not understanding... that you have always been one of us. Our family will look to you now.
Tarzan: No. Kerchak!
Kerchak: Take care of them... my son. Take care of them. [dies]
