The jungle is JUMPIN'!

Baloo[edit]

  • [after he, Bagheera, and Mowgli escape from King Louie and company] Whew! [laughs] Man, that’s what I call a swingin' party!
  • [after Bagheera tells Baloo he is taking Mowgli back to the Man Village] They'll ruin him! They'll make a man out of him!
  • [as he and Mowgli float down a river] Lemme tell you some'm, Li'l Britches: if you act like that bee acts, uh-uh. You’re working too hard. And don’t spend your time just looking around.... for something you want that can’t be found.
  • [yanks a pouty Baggie's tail as he smirks] Come on, Baggy! Get with the beat!

Bagheera[edit]

  • Many strange legends are told of these jungles of India, but none so strange as the story of a small boy named Mowgli. It all began when the silence of the jungle was broken by an unfamiliar sound. [Bagheera stopped at baby Mowgli's boat and hears him crying] It was a sound like one never heard before in this part of the jungle. It was a man-cub! Had I known how deeply I was to be involved, I would've obeyed my first impulse and walked away.
  • "Pawpaw".... Ha! Of all the silly gibberish.
  • Oh, no, it’s Baloo! That shiftless, stupid jungle bum!

Other[edit]

  • Kaa: [after Mowgli learns he has been deceived by the snake] If I never see that skinny little shrimp again, it will be too soon. [slithering away] Oh, my s-s-sacroiliac.
  • Shere Khan: [while Baloo holds his tail] Let go, you big oaf!
  • Mowgli: [angrily hitting Shere Khan's face with a stick] Take that, you big bully!
  • Akela: So be it. Now there's no time to lose. Good luck.

Dialogue[edit]

[first lines]
Narrator/Bagheera: Many strange legends are told of these jungles of India, but none so strange as the story of a small boy named Mowgli. It all began when the silence of the jungle was broken by an unfamiliar sound. [Bagheera stopped at Baby Mowgli's boat] It was a sound like one never heard before in this part of the jungle. [Bagheera looks the boat with Baby Mowgli] It was a man-cub. Had I known how deeply I was to be involved, I would have obeyed my first impulse and walked away. [Bagheera turns back on the branch, and Baby Mowgli looks at him playfully] This man-cub would have to have nourishment, and soon. It was many days travel to the nearest man-village and without a mother's care, he would soon perish. Then it occurred to me. A family of wolves I knew had been blessed with a litter of cubs. [the wolf pups playing and their mother Raksha, Bagheera is looking at them from bushes, Bagheera with Baby Mowgli watches from the bushes as the family of wolves walk into their lair and puts the baby boy right before the entrance. Baby Mowgli goes, and Bagheera pushes the peacock away just before he runs off the bushes and Baby Mowgli to make him down and hides back. Wolves come out and look at Baby Mowgli] I knew there'd be no problem with the mother, thanks to maternal instinct, but I wasn't so sure about Rama, the father. [Rama comes from the jungle, looks at the baby Man-cub, sees the smiling face of Raksha, looks at Baby Mowgli playing with the 4 wolf pups again, and smiles, too, and the "My Own Home" theme starts in the background as the wolves take Baby Mowgli into the wolf lair]

Narrator/Bagheera: 10 times, the rains had come and gone. And I often stopped by to see how Mowgli the Man-cub, was getting along. He was a favorite with all the young wolf cubs of the pack.
Mowgli: [imitates howling, Raksha and the 4 young wolf pups came out of the cave, Grey Brother and Leah playfully tackle and lick Mowgli]
Narrator/Bagheera: No Man-cub was ever happier. And yet.... I knew that someday he would have to go back to his own kind. Then, one night, the wolf pack elders met at Council Rock. Because Shere Khan, the tiger, had returned to their part of the jungle. This meeting was to change the Man-cub's entire future.
Akela: Shere Khan will surely kill the boy, and all who try to protect him. Now, are we all in agreement as to what must be done? [wolves nod] Now, it is my unpleasant duty to tell the boy's father. Rama? Come over here, please.
Rama: Yes, Akela?
Akela: The council has reached its decision. The Man-cub can no longer stay with the pack. He must leave at once.
Rama: (shocked) Leave?!
Akela: I'm sorry, Rama. There is no other way.
Rama: But.... but the Man-cub is.... well, he's like my own son! Surely, he's entitled to the protection of the pack?
Akela: But, Rama, even the strength of the pack is no match for the tiger.
Rama: But the boy cannot survive alone in the jungle.
Bagheera: Akela, perhaps I can be of help.
Akela: You, Bagheera? How?
Bagheera: I know of a Man Village where he'll be safe. Mowgli and I have taken many walks into this jungle together. I'm pretty sure that he'll go with me.
Akela: So be it. Now there's no time to lose. Good luck.

[At night]
Mowgli: Bagheera.... [yawning] I’m gettin' a little sleepy. Shouldn’t we start back home?
Bagheera: Mowgli, this time, we’re not going back. I’m taking you to a Man Village.
Mowgli: But why?
Bagheera: Because Shere Khan has returned to this part of the jungle, and he has sworn to kill you.
Mowgli: Kill me? But why was he gonna wanna to do that?
Bagheera: He hates men. And Shere Khan is not going to allow you to grow up to become a man----just another hunter with a gun.
Mowgli: Aw, we’ll just explain to him that I’d never do a thing like that.
Bagheera: Nonsense. No one explains anything to Shere Khan.
Mowgli: Well, maybe so, but I’m not afraid. And not only that....
Bagheera: Now, that's enough! We'll spend the night here; things will look better in the morning.

[Bagheera and Mowgli settle down for the night on a branch of a tree.]
Mowgli: I'm not afraid, I can----I can look after myself.
[Kaa then appears from the leaves, he smacks his lips when noticing Mowgli, looks towards Bagheera to see him sleeping. He then approaches Mowgli.]
Kaa: S-ss-say now! [Mowgli looks up unimpressed, scowls at Kaa, and then sticks his tongue out at him.] What have we here? [chuckles] It's a Man-cub, a deeliss-ss-see-aws-ss-s Man-cub.
Mowgli: [angrily Pushing Kaa away.] Oh, go away and leave me alone.
Bagheera: [sleeping] That's what I should do, but I'm not. Now, now, now please go to sleep, Man-cub!
[Kaa nods his head in agreement and begins to hypnotize Mowgli.]
Kaa: Yes-ss-s, Man-cub. [singing] Please go to sleep. Please go to sleep. [sings this as tuned from "Rock-a-Bye Baby"] Sleep little Man-cub, res-ss-st in peas-ss-se.
[Kaa begins to wrap his coils around a hypnotized Mowgli.]
Kaa: S-SS-Sleep. S-SS-Sleep.
Mowgli: [moaning] Ba-Ba-Ba-Bagheer--?
[Kaa wraps his tail tightly around Mowgli's throat, choking Mowgli. Bagheera still unaware at what's happening.]
Bagheera: [sleeping] Oh, now, look, there's no use arguing anymore. Now, no more talk till morning.
[Kaa now completely has a fully hypnotized (and smiling) Mowgli wrapped around his coils.]
Kaa: [chuckles] He won't be here in the morning.
Bagheera: [glances at Mowgli and Kaa] Huh? Oh, yes, he will-- [suddenly realizes what is happening and fully wakes up] Kaa?! KAA!!!! HOLD IT, KAA!!!!
[just before Kaa is about to eat Mowgli, Bagheera angrily slaps Kaa's head onto another tree branch, and Kaa bangs his head on it. This makes Mowgli fully conscious and released from Kaa's coils.]
Kaa: Ooooh, my s-ss-sinus-ss-s! [frowns at Bagheera and moves forward to him] You have just made a s-ss-serious-ss-s mis-ss-stake, my friend. A very, stupid--
Bagheera: [laughs nervously] Now, look, Kaa, I was--
Kaa: --mis-ss-stake! Look me in the eye when I'm s-ss-speaking to you! [begins to hypnotize Bagheera]
Bagheera: Please, Kaa.... [looks Kaa in his left eye]
Kaa: BOTH eyes, if you pleas-ss-se! [hypnotizes the panther, and now Baggie is fully hypnotized and smiling] You have jus-ss-st s-ss-sealed your doom. [Mowgli, awaken from Kaa's evil spell, pushes the dastardly snake's coils with his feet that causes him to fall] Ooooh.
Mowgli: Look, Bagheera! [points at Kaa] Look. Bagheera! Wake up, Bagheera! [wakes Baggie up by smacking his both cheeks with his bare hands from Kaa's evil spell]
Bagheera: [wakes up] Uh, duh, wha--?
Kaa: [crawling away, angrily] Jus-ss-st you wait till I get you in my coils! [suddenly stops because a knot on his tail gets stuck between a couple bamboo stems]
Mowgli: [playfully] Look, Bagheera! He's got a knot on his tail.
Kaa: [mimics Mowgli, sarcastically] Hee-hee-hee-he's got a knot on his tail. [frees his tail, but that causes his whole coils to look like an accordion, then Kaa slithers away now with his bent coils] Ooooh, this-ss-s will s-ss-slow down my s-ss-slithering. [Mowgli laughs playfully]
Bagheera: [smirks] So, you could look out for yourself, can you? [then smiles] So, you wanna stay in the jungle, do ya?
Mowgli: Yes. [frowns] I wanna stay in the jungle!
Bagheera: [annoyed] D'oh! Now, for the last time.... [snaps and both half-smirks (on the right) and half-smiles (on the left)] ....GO TO SLEEP!!!! [Mowgli pouts as he tries to get some sleep] Man-cub, heh! Man-cub. [They finally go to sleep and settle down for the night]

[During the inspection of the Jungle Patrol]
Winifred: March, march, march. My feet are killing me.
Elephant #1: [whispers] I’m putting in for a transfer to another herd.

[After the monkeys have kidnapped Mowgli]
Baloo: Bagheera!
Bagheera: [Turns around as he hears Baloo yelling his name a mile away] Well, it's happened. Took a little longer than I thought, but it's happened. [Starts running back toward Baloo, who's struggling to climb up a cliff. Bagheera reaches the cliff]
Baloo: [scrambles up over the edge] BAGHEEERA!!!! [Baloo has screamed bloody murder in Bagheera's face which has shaken. Baloo then realizes that Bagheera is in front of him] Oh, you heard me, huh?

Bagheera: All right, what happened? Where's Mowgli?
Baloo: They ambushed me! Zillions of 'em! I jabbed with my left, then I swung with the right, and then I--!
Bagheera: Oh, for the last time, what happened to Mowgli?
Baloo: Like I told ya, them mangy monkeys carried him off!
Bagheera: The Ancient Ruins. Oh, I hate to think about what will happen when he meets the King of theirs.

King Louie: Ha-Ha! So you're the Man-cub? [rolls his eyes] Crazy.
Mowgli: I'm not as crazy as you are. [to the monkeys] Put me down!
[A monkey lets go of Mowgli's ankles, resulting in Mowgli landing flat on his face.]
Mowgli: [angrily shaking a fist] You cut that out!
King Louie: [picks up Mowgli by his loincloth] Cool it, boy, and unwind yourself. [scat-sings to himself; Mowgli furiously punches the air] Come on, let's shake, cousin. [grabs Mowgli's hand and shakes it]
Mowgli: What do you want me for?!
King Louie: Word has grabbed my royal ears... Have a banana. [shoots the banana into Mowgli's mouth] ... that you wanna stay in the jungle.
Mowgli: [mouth full of banana] Stay in the jungle? I sure do!
King Louie: Good, and ol' King Louie... [scats] ...that's me, can fix it for you. Have two bananas. [shoots the two bananas into Mowgli's mouth] Have we got a deal?
Mowgli: [mouth full of bananas] Yes, sir. I'll do... [swallows] I'll do anything to stay in the jungle.
King Louie: Well, then, I'll lay it on the line for you.

Mowgli: Bagheera, where are you going?
Bagheera: You're going back to the Man Village right now!
Mowgli: I'm not going!
Bagheera: Oh, yes, you are!
Mowgli: [grabbing hold of a tree] I'm stayin' right here!
Bagheera: You're going if I have to drag you every step of the way!
[Bagheera grabs Mowgli by the loincloth with his teeth and tries to tug him away from the tree.]
Bagheera: [grunting through his teeth] Let go, you....
Mowgli: No! You let go of me!
[Bagheera pulls too hard, loses his grip, and falls backward into the river. As he tries to get out of the water, he accidentally hits his head on a log.]
Bagheera: [angrily] Oh, that does it! I've had it, Man-cub! For now on, you're on your own.... ALONE!!!!
Mowgli: Don't worry about me.

[Baloo and Bagheera overhears what King Louie plans to use Mowgli for]
Bagheera: Fire?! So, that's what that scoundrel's after.
Baloo: I'll tear him limb from limb! I'll beat him! I'll.... I'll.... [starts dancing to the music] Yeah. Well, man, what a beat.
Bagheera: Will you quit that silly beat business and listen?! This will take brains, not brawn.
Baloo: You better believe it, and I'm loaded with both!
Bagheera: Will you listen?!
Baloo: Oh, yeah, yeah. [begins sneaking off into the music]
Bagheera: Now, while you create a disturbance, I'll rescue Mowgli. Got that?
Baloo: I'm gone, man. Solid gone.
Bagheera: NOT YET, BALOO!!!!

Col. Hathi: [looking closely at a recruit’s trunk] Tsk, tsk, tsk. A dusty muzzle. [to elephant in question] Soldier, remember in battle, that trunk can save your life. [taps trunk with cane] Take good care of it, my man.
Elephant #2: Yes, sir!
Col. Hathi: Very good. Carry on.
[the next recruit has dirty tusks and is lazily chewing on some vegetation.]
Col. Hathi: [clears his throat in annoyance] Let's have a little more spit and polish on those bayonets. [taps tusk with cane]
Elephant #3: Yes, sir!
Col. Hathi: Esprit de corps! That's the way I earned my commission in the Mahajarah's 5th Pachyderm Brigade. Back in '88, it was. Or was it...?
Winifred: [whispering to another elephant] Here it comes. The "Victoria Cross" bit again.
Col. Hathi: It was then I received the Victoria Cross, for bravery above and beyond the call of duty. [chuckles] Those were the days. Discipline! Discipline was the thing! [leans on his cane] It builds character and all that sort of thing, you know--
[Hathi's cane snaps as he leans on it]
Col. Hathi: Oh! Um... Where was I? Oh, yes. Inspection.
[The next recruit is a rough-looking elephant with bent tusks and a black eye]
Col. Hathi: Very good. Carry on.
[The next recruit is an elephant with a goofy looking grin across his face]
Col. Hathi: Wipe off that silly grin, soldier! This is the army.
[The elephant's smile droops into a sad frown, making his tusks droop. The next recruit is focused on a fly buzzing around his face which lands on his trunk]
Col. Hathi: Ahem. [swats the fly with his cane] Eyes front.
[Next, the lieutenant, with a mop of hair]
Col. Hathi: Tsk, tsk, tsk. Lieutenant, that haircut is not regulation. [messes the hair up] Rather on the gaudy side, don't you think?
[Hathi swipes his cane across, giving the lieutenant a military style flat-top haircut]
Col. Hathi: There. That's better.
[Hathi looks to the left]
Col. Hathi: And as for you--
[Realises that he's talking to his son, Junior. Looks down]
Col. Hathi: Oh, there you are. [chuckles] Let's keep those heels together, shall we, son?
Junior: OK, Pop-- sir!
Col. Hathi: Yes, that's better.
[Turns to Mowgli]
Col. Hathi: Well, a new recruit, eh? [chuckles and pokes Mowgli's nose with his cane] I say, what happened to your trunk?
Mowgli: Hey! Stop that!
Col. Hathi: [gasps, sputters] A Man-cub! [picking up Mowgli with trunk] Oh, this is treason! Sabotage! I’ll have no Man-cub in my jungle! [puts him down on ground]
Mowgli: It’s not your jungle!
Bagheera: Hold it. Hold it! I can explain, Hathi.
Col. Hathi: Colonel Hathi, if you please, sir.
Bagheera: Oh, yes, yes. Colonel Hathi. The Man-cub is with me. I'm taking him back to the Man Village.
Col. Hathi: To stay?
Bagheera: You have the word of Bagheera.
Col. Hathi: Good. And remember, an elephant never forgets. [mumbling] Heh. I don't know what the army's coming to these days. These young whippersnappers, who do they think they are?

[Col. Hathi and the Jungle Patrol are marching]
Bagheera: Stop! Wait a minute! HAAAALLLLLTT!!!!
[The Jungle Patrol stops abruptly stops]
Col. Hathi: Who said halt?! I give the commands around here! Now, speak up! Who was it?!
Bagheera: It was me, Colonel.
Col. Hathi: What is this, taking over command?! Highly irregular, you know!
[Shere Khan is seen spying on them]
Bagheera: Oh, Colonel, I'm sorry, but I need your help.
Col. Hathi: Oh, impossible! We're on a cross-country march!
Bagheera: But this is an emergency! I need you to find the man-cub!
Col. Hathi: Man-cub? What man-cub?
Shere Khan: How interesting
Bagheera: The one I was taking to the Man Village!
Col. Hathi: Good, that's where he belongs. Now sir, if you don't mind, we'd like to get on with the march.
Bagheera: No, no, you don't understand! He's lost. He ran away.
Shere Khan: How delightful.
Col. Hathi: Well, it serves the whippersnapper right.
Bagheera: But Shere Khan the Tiger is sure to pick up the man-cub's trail.
Col. Hathi: [luaghs] Shere Khan?! Nonsense, old boy! Shere Khan isn't within miles from here!
Shere Khan: [chuckles evilly]
Col. Hathi: Sorry, Bagheera. Fortunes of war and all that sort of thing, you know.
Winifred: [storms towards Hathi, with Junior following her] This has gone far enough! Far enough! [to Hathi] Now, just a minute, you pompous old windbag!
Col. Hathi: Winifred! What are you doing out of ranks?!
Winifred: Never mind! How would like to have our boy lost and alone in the jungle?
Col. Hathi: Our son... alone? But Winifred, old girl, this is entirely different matter!
Winifred: Hmph!
Col. Hathi: Different, entirely.
Winifred: That little boy is no different than our own son. Now, you help find him or I'm taking over command!
Col. Hathi: What?! A female leading my heard?! Utterly preposterous!
Junior: Pop, the man-cub and I are friends. He'll get hurt if we don't find him. Please, Pop, sir, please?
Col. Hathi: [softening up] Now, don't you worry, son. You father had a plan in mind all the time.
Winifred: [sarcastically] Sure you did.

Kaa: Oh, now what? I'll be right down. [gets down from the tree almost completely] Yes? Yes? Who is it?
Shere Khan: It's me. Shere Khan. I'd like a word with you if you don't mind.
Kaa: Shere Khan. What a surprise.
Shere Khan: Yes, isn't it? I just dropped by. Now, forgive me if I've interrupted anything.
Kaa: Oh,no. No. Nothing at all.
Shere Khan: I thought perhaps you were entertaining someone up there in your coils.
Kaa: Coils? Someone? Oh, no. I was just curling up for my siesta.
Shere Khan: But you were singing to someone. [squeezes Kaa's throat] Who is it, Kaa?
Kaa: [choking like mad] No.... no.... I was just.... singing.... uh.... to myself.
Shere Khan: Indeed.
Kaa: Yes.... you see, I have.... trouble with my sinuses.
Shere Khan: What a pity. [releases Kaa's neck and gently pins him to the ground]
Kaa: Oh, you have no idea. It's simply terrible. I can't eat. I can't sleep. So, I sing myself to sleep. You know, self-hypnosis? [brings his head close to Shere Khan's face] Let me show you how it works. [He uses his hypnosis technique with his eyes] "Trust in me...."
[Shere Khan, unaffected, pushes Kaa away and pins his head to the ground]
Shere Khan: Oh, no, I can't be bothered with that. I have no time for that sort of nonsense.
Kaa: Some other time, perhaps?
Shere Khan: Perhaps. But at the moment, I'm searching for a Man-cub.
Kaa: Man-cub? What Man-cub?
Shere Khan: The one who's lost. Now, where do you suppose he could be?
Kaa: Search me.
Shere Khan: That's an excellent idea. Now, I'm sure you wouldn't mind showing me your coils would you, Kaa?
Kaa: Certainly not. Nothing in there. [lowering his tail] And nothing in here. [his tail pointing to his mouth open]
Mowgli: [snoring]
Kaa: [snorting] It's my sinuses.
Shere Khan: Hmm. Indeed. And now, how about the middle?
Kaa: The middle? Oh, the middle. [lowering the middle leaving Mowgli on the tree trunk spinning around and showing Shere Khan the middle of his coils and then getting tickled] Absolutely nothing in the middle.
Shere Khan: Hmm. Really? Well, if you do just happen to see the Man-cub, you will inform me first. Understand? (scrathing Kaa's neck gently)
Kaa:I-I-I-I get the point. [spinning himself into a bow with his head on top] Cross my heart, hope to die.
Shere Khan: Good show. And now, I must continue my search for the helpless little lad.
Kaa: Oh, who does he think he's fooling. The helpless little lass... woooo he gives me the shhhhhhivers. [Kaa's shivering wakes up Mowgli] Picking on that poor, little, helpless boy. Oh yes... poor, little, helpless boy.
[Mowgli pushes the rest of Kaa off the branches and sends him falling to the ground]
Mowgli: [climbs down the tree] You told me a lie, Kaa! You said I could trust you!
Kaa: It's like you sssaid: you can't trusssst anyone! [tries to strike Mowgli, only to caught in by a knot in his tail; when he pulls it out, his body comes back like an accordion] If I don't see that man-cub again, it will be too soon. My poor sssacriliac.

[As Mowgli tearfully mourns Baloo]
Bagheera: Mowgli, try to understand.
Mowgli: Bagheera, what’s the matter with him?
Bagheera: You’ve got to be brave, like Baloo was.
Mowgli: Y-you don’t mean.... Oh, no. Baloo.
Bagheera: Now, now. I know how you feel. But you must remember, Mowgli: "Greater love hath no one than he who lays down his life for his friend." [As the panther speaks, Baloo opens his eyes.] When great deeds are remembered in this jungle, one name will stand above all others: our friend, Baloo the Bear.
Baloo: [sniffling] He’s cracking me up.
Bagheera: The memory of Baloo’s sacrifice and bravery will forever be engraved on our saddened hearts.
Baloo: Beautiful.
Bagheera: This spot where Baloo fell will always be a hallowed place in the jungle, for there lies one of nature’s noblest creatures.
Baloo: [still sniffling] I wish my mother could have heard this.
Bagheera: It’s best we leave now. Come along, man-cub.
Baloo: ...Hey, don't stop now, Baggie, you're doing great! There's more! Lots more!
Bagheera: [sees Baloo still alive and explodes] WHY, YOU.... BIG.... FRAUD!!!! You, you-you-you 4-flusher, you! I'm fed up!
Mowgli: Baloo. you're all right. (happily)
Baloo: Who, me? Sure, I am. Never felt.... better.
Vultures: [laughing happily]
Mowgli: You sure had us worried.
Baloo: Aw, I was just taking 5. Y'know, playin' it cool. Eh, but he was too easy.
Mowgli: C'mon, Baloo. Let's go home.
Dizzy: It's going to be a bit dull without that little bloke, isn't it?
Buzzie: Yeah. So what are we gonna do?
Flaps: I dunno--Hey, now don't start that again!

Bagheera: Baloo! Over here. I like to have a word with you.
Baloo: A word? You gonna talk some more? [yawns] All right! What's up, Bagheera?
Bagheera: Baloo, the Man-cub must go back to the Man Village. The jungle is not the place for him.
[Baloo eats some grapes from a tree]
Baloo: I grew up in the jungle. Take a look at me!
Bagheera: Yes, just look at yourself! Look at that eye!
[Baloo looks himself in the river and sees his black eye.]
Baloo: Yeah. It's beautiful, ain't it?
Bagheera: Frankly, you're a disreputable sight.
Baloo: Well, you don't look exactly like a basket of fruit yourself.
[Bagheera also looks himself in the river and sees his black eye.]
Bagheera: D'oh! [clears his throat] Baloo, you can't adopt Mowgli as your son.
Baloo: Why not?
Bagheera: Uh.... How can I put it?
[Baloo eats a handful of grapes]
Bagheera: Baloo, birds of a feather should flock together. You wouldn't marry a panther, would you?
Baloo: [chuckling] I don't know. Come to think of it, no panther ever asked me!
Bagheera: [flustered] Baloo, y-y-you've got to be serious about—-
Baloo: Oh, stop worrying, Baggy! Quit worrying! I'll take care of him.
Bagheera: Yes, like you did when the monkeys kidnapped him?
Baloo: Can't a guy make one mistake?
Bagheera: Not in the jungle! And another thing: Sooner or later, Mowgli will meet Shere Khan.
Baloo: [suddenly very serious] Huh? The tiger?! What's he got against the kid?
Bagheera: He hates man with a vengenance. You know that! Because he fears man's gun and man's fire.
Baloo: But little Mowgli don't have those things!
Bagheera: And Shere Khan won't wait until he does. He'll get Mowgli while he's young and helpless. Just one swipe.
Baloo: Oh! Well, well what are we gonna do?
Bagheera: Well, we do what's best for the boy.
Baloo: You better believe it. You name it, and I'll do it.
Bagheera: Good! Then make Mowgli go to the man-village.
Baloo: [now angry] Are you outta your mind?! I promised him he could stay here in the jungle with me!
Bagheera: Well, that's just the point! As long as he remains with you, he's in danger! So, it's up to you.
Baloo: Why me?!
Bagheera: B-b-because he won't listen to me!
Baloo: [humbled] But I love that kid. I love him like he was my own cub.
Bagheera: Then, think of what's best for Mowgli and not yourself.
Baloo: Well, c... Well, can't I wait until morning?
Bagheera: It's morning now. Go on, Baloo.

Buzzie: Run, friend, run!
Mowgli: Run? Why should I run?
Shere Khan: Why should you run? Could it be possible that you don't know who I am?
Mowgli: I know you all right. You're Shere Khan.
Shere Khan: Precisely! And you should also know that everyone runs from Shere Khan.
Mowgli : You don't scare me! I don't run from anyone!
Shere Khan: Ah, you have spirit for one so small. And such spirit is deserving of a sporting chance. Now, I'm going to close my eyes and count to ten. It makes the chase more interesting...for me. One...
[Music intensifies as Mowgli looks for something to defend himself with as Shere Khan continues counting]
Shere Khan: 2...
[Mowgli spots something and goes over to retrieve it.]
Shere Khan: 3...
[As Mowgli picks up a stick, Shere Khan begins to suspect something.]
Shere Khan: 4...
[Mowgli prepares to defend himself]
Shere Khan: You're trying my patience. [counts faster] 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10!!!!
[Shere Khan leaps at Mowgli with a loud roar, Mowgli loses all of his nerve at the sight of this fearsome creature; Shere Khan almost catches Mowgli until Baloo grabs him by the tail]
Baloo: Run, Mowgli, run!

Buzzy: [yawns] Hey, Flaps, what we gonna do?
Flaps: I dunno. What'cha wanna do?
Ziggy: I've got it! Let's flap over to the east side of the jungle. They've always got a bit of action, a bit of a swingin' scene, all right.
Buzzy: Aw, come off it. Things are right dead all over.
Ziggy: You mean you wish they were. [They all laugh, except for Dizzy]
Dizzy: Very funny.
Buzzy: OK. So, what we gonna do?
Flaps: I dunno. What'cha wanna do?
Buzzy: Look, Flaps. First I say, "What we gonna do?" Then you say, "I don't know. What'cha wanna do?" Then I say, "What we gonna do?" Then you say, "What'cha wanna do?" "What we gonna do? What you want..." Let's do SOMETHING!!!
Flaps: OK. What'cha wanna do? [Buzzie sighs]
Buzzy: There you go again. The same notes again!
Ziggy: [Snaps his fingers] I've got it! This time, I really got it!
Buzzy: OK, you got it. So what are we gonna do?
Dizzy: [spots Mowgli] Hold it, lads. Look! Look what's coming our way.
Flaps: Hey, what in the world is that?
Buzzie: So what are we gonna do?
Flaps: I dunno--Hey, now, don't start that again!
Ziggy: C'mon. C'mon! Let's get acquainted with this little blokey!

[as Baloo has Shere Khan by the tail]
Buzzy: He's got a tiger by the tail, he has!
Dizzy: He better hold on, too!

[Flaps and Dizzy have just saved Mowgli]
Buzzy: He's safe now! You can let go, Baloo!
Baloo: Are you kiddin'?! There's teeth in the other end!
[Mowgli sees Shanti the Girl for the first time]
Mowgli: What's that?
Bagheera: Oh, it's the man-village.
Mowgli: No. I mean that.
Baloo: Forget about those. They ain't nothin' but trouble.
Mowgli: In a minute. I've never seen one before.
Baloo: So you've seen one. So, let's go.
Mowgli: I'll be right back. I want a better look.
Baloo: Mowgli, wait a minute.
Bagheera: Ah, Baloo. Let him have a better look.

[as Shanti drops her pot of water]
Baloo: She did that on purpose!
Bagheera: Obviously.

[After Mowgli, lured by Shanti the Girl, enters the Man Village for the first time]
Baloo: He’s hooked.
Bagheera: Ah, it was inevitable, Baloo. The boy couldn’t help himself. It was bound to happen. Mowgli is where he belongs now.
Baloo: Yeah. I guess you’re right. But I still think that he’d have made one swell bear.

[Last lines]
Baloo: Well, come on, Baggy-buddy, let's get back to where we belong! And get with the beat! [singing] Look for the Bare Necessities, the simple Bare Necessities!
Bagheera: [singing] Forget about your worries and your strife!
Both: [singing] I mean the Bare Necessities are Mother Nature's recipes that bring the Bare Necessities of life!
