- This could be the start of a beautiful... acquaintanceship.
- To find Hakuna Matata, you must look beyond what you see.
- Timon: [about Simba] He's gone? Whaddaya mean he's gone?!
- Nala: It's just like the baboon said. The king has returned. [Timon and Pumbaa stare at her blankly] [sighs] You guys want me to go over it again?
- Timon: Yes please, but be a dear and skip to the part about Simba. Not that your childhood wasn't fascinating!
- Nala: Okay. Look, Simba's the rightful king, but after he disappeared, Scar proclaimed himself the king and formed an alliance with the hyenas...
- [As Nala talks, Timon and Pumbaa stop listening.]
- Pumbaa: [thinks] Poor Simba. The treachery! The villainy! The sheer indescribable horror!
- Timon: [thinks] Blah blah blah. Why is she toying with us? This crazy chick is gonna eat us!
- Nala: ...So Simba has to go back to challenge his uncle and reclaim his place as king! [Timon and Pumbaa stare blankly at her.] Ohh, don't you get it?! Simba needs us! Now!
- [at the end of the film]
- Timon: Well, that's it. The big wrap-up. The happy ending. The grand finale.
- Pumbaa: It's over already?
- Timon: Well, Pumbaa, that's the thing about endings. They come at the end.
- Pumbaa: Oh, can we watch it again?
- Timon: Pumbaa, we just saw it. Maybe tomorrow.
- Ma: [enters] Hey, what're you guys doin'? [notices the film and gasps] You didn't tell me you were watching the movie! I wanna watch, too!
- Timon: Ma! We just finished! Show's over!
- Ma: Well, you're just gonna hafta rewind it. [runs the film back]
- Timon: Ma!
- Ma: Uncle Max! We're gonna watch the movie!
- Timon: Oh, no!
- Max: [enters with popcorn] Hey, I brought extra butter!
- Simba: [enters] Hey, you guys are watching the movie?
- Rafiki: [enters with laughter] Any story worth telling is worth telling twice!
- [many a Disney character enters the theater]
- Timon: What the--?
- Snow White: Oh, excuse me.
- Dwarves: [one by one, save for Grumpy] Excuse me.
- Grumpy: Get outta the way.
- Timon: Who is this crowd? Hey! Down in front!
- [Stitch bounces repeatedly from one character to another]
- Goofy: Gawrsh!
- Stitch: Aloha!
- [Peter Pan crows like a rooster]
- Timon: Watch it!
- [he gets stuck in between two characters, then approaches Pumbaa]
- Timon: Okay, buddy. You win.
- Pumbaa: Sure you don't mind?
- Timon: Hakuna matata.

- Pumbaa: Timon, I still don't do so well in crowds.
