A whole new breed of tourist.(taglines)


  • Please just go back to the boat. I gotta find my son.
  • Ryan! Are you staying with me?
  • You are a squirrel and she is...
  • Over my dead body!
  • Benny, we need to have that truck followed.


  • Well, that settles it, then. My mother definitely drank pool water when she was pregnant with me.
  • Don't worry about a thing, big guy. I got all taken care of.
  • I know this city, like the back of my paw.


  • How do we steer? Who knows how to steer? None of us. We're animals. Great!
  • [to Nigel] You need a good sports bra.
  • I'm from New York City, for Pete's sake.


  • Dad, thanks for the technical help, but if you really wanted me to roar like you, you'd take me to the wild.
  • [to his father] I just want you to know I'm sorry you didn't have a father like the one I have.


  • [wearing a popcorn dispenser] I've got popcorn up my bum. Does I look trashy in this?
  • It's fine - it's just leaves, and vines, and aaaah what's this? Oh, that's my foot.
  • [as a pack of dogs run away] Go on, you mutts! Stupid dogs, we could've taken you. [the pack of dogs return] Take you to a... to a disco.
  • [to a wildebeest] Terribly sorry to bother you, but, um, do you speak koala? Sprechen Sie koala?
  • Permission to go down with the ship, sir? Hang on, stuff that - everyone off the ship!
  • As that famous koala once said, "We will fight them... with... peaches."
  • Here I come! Hey! [lands hard on the fence] Who put that bar there?
  • Do we not have the Party Hats of Death? I've got mine!
  • Perhaps now is a good time to improvise.
  • All right, everybody, exit in an orderly fa... All right, single file! Keep it sit! Ow! I seem to do a lot of falling and screaming in this adventure.
  • Ready? Stand back... as the Great Me attacks the lion over 73 times my size!


  • Touching. But then last words usually are...Finish them.
  • I am Kazar. Leader. Prophet. Choreographer.


  • My flesh has fruity woodnotes!
  • [sarcastically] Run for your lives, everyone, it's a lion with big moral issues. [walks into a tree] Ouch! And I had enough of you too! Thanks a lot for wrecking my day!


Bridget: Benny, please tell me we're not in a dangerous jungle with an 8-inch squirrel protecting us?
Benny: Actually, I'm nine inches. But other than that, yes.
Bridget: So that means...
Nigel: We are going to die! [screaming]
[Larry, Bridget and Nigel begin freaking out and running around in circles.]

[talking about a sewer system]
Samson: Appears to be a human bathing area.
Nigel: You mean humans don't lick themselves clean? Disgusting!

Benny: Hey, watch where you goin', you, big, big...! [stammering]
[Minnie Riperton: Lovin' You]
Benny: Bridget.
Bridget: Don't stare at my spots, Benny, my eyes are up here.
[crashing, music stopping]

Blag: [to Kazar] And for the record, I've always hated your choreography. It's so... '80s.

Samson: Who are you?
Camo: Our names aren't important.
Cloak: I'm Cloak, he's Camo.

Samson: Those boxes are bad news. Stay away.

[repeated line]
Talking Koala Bear Doll: I'm so cuddly, I like you.

Benny: [after being confronted by a pack of wildebeest] Don't panic, I'm in charge here.
Bridget: That's why we're panicking!

[first lines]
Samson: So there I was, face to face with the biggest, meanest leopard on the Savannah and...
Ryan: You roared so loud, his spots flew off. Dad, I've heard that story a billion times.

Benny: Mm, what? Wha...? Wha...? Whoa. Wait! What? What? Wait! Wait, wait, wait, wait! Hey! Hey! Hey! Ow! Ow! Ow! Hey! Ow! Get off me! What is goin' on here?!
Dung Bugs: Stinky does not speak. It rolls like a little ball.
Benny: Wait, wait. You guys think I'm a...?
Dung Bugs: Achtung, Stinky! Less talk, more roll. Ja. Roll! Roll!
Benny: What the...? [grunts] Hey!
Dung Bug: Rolling the dung is good for tight buns! [chuckles]
Benny: I'll give you something to roll about! [shudders] It's a good thing Bridget didn't see that!

[Benny walks up to Hamir]
Hamir: Oh, Benny, I am needing until Friday before I pay you back.
Benny: No, no, it's Ryan. He's in one of those green boxes, and they took it away. We got to find him.
Hamir: That is not good, not good at all. [pigeons are dancing behind him trying to tell him something] Ah! I know, I know! I am telling him you crazy pigeons! [sighs]

Kazar: Step, kick, pivot, kick, walk, walk, walk! Aaaahhh! Why do we even bother rehearsing? [snorts at Blag] Mmmmm. Mmm-mm. A good chorus line is so hard to put together.

Nigel: If you don't give us ice creams pretty quick, you're gonna walk the plank, sir.

Nigel: I am not a doll.
Monkey #1: Cushy Tushy!
Nigel: Aaahhh! Leave my butt alone!

Stan: You done running your mouth yet, Carmine? Huh? Are you? Huh? Huh? Huh? [turns to Samson and his friends] I apologize, he never got over being flushed down the toilet. [hits Carmine 2 more times] Huh?
Carmine: Yeah.

Nigel: Ooh. Does anyone have any eucalyptus wipes?

Larry: Oh, oh, I know; he's sulking because he lives in his father's shadow, and he roars like a school girl.
Samson: Thanks, Larry.
Larry: You betcha.

Hyrax: Aaahh! Doesn't anyone ever knock anymore?
Samson: Hey, where's my son? Did he come through here?
Hyrax: Yeah, now that I think about it, he did come through here. [turns to toilet] Hello? Come out of there, baby lion, your dad's here! Well, what do you know, it's a whole pride of lions down here!

Samson: Do what you did just then - but the opposite!
Larry: But I don't know my opposites!

Samon: I'm improvised. Now jump!
Bridget: Down there?
Samson: Yes!
Bridget: Whoa!
Nigel: Waaah!
Samson: We're leaving, Larry! Whoa!
