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!
  • What's he gonna think of me when he finds out?
  • 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.
  • I don't know. But if you don't tell him, you're gonna lose him, Sammy.
  • Don't worry about a thing, big guy. I got all taken care of.
  • I know this city, like the back of my paw.
  • [hearing Samson's roar] Oh, YEAH, BABY!!


  • Sam, do you see anything up there?
  • 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.
  • The green boxes.


  • [wearing a popcorn dispenser] I've got popcorn up my bum. Do 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!
  • What on earth is going on?
  • Perhaps now is a good time to improvise.
  • [last lines] 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!
  • Oh, no! Not you!


  • Touching. But then last words usually are...Finish them.
  • I am Kazar. Leader. Prophet. Choreographer. And with your help, carnivore!
  • Great Him, it's another miracle! You've delivered us a real lion! [to Blag] Blag, your luck has turned.
  • Prey has become predator! And predator has become prey! And the hoof finally trumps the claw!
  • For centuries, we've watched our brethren perish at the claw of the lion.
  • [Last words] Top of the food chain, Ma! Top of the food cha--[He trips over a stuffed koala, whose strings tie his legs together. The "I Like You" doll keeps saying "I'm so cuddly, I like you.", and the whole rock sculpture shaped like a koala's face resembling Nigel's comes down.] Uh-oh.


  • Doesn't anyone knock anymore?!
  • I am a delicacy. My flesh has fruity woodnotes!
  • You call this wild?! This is a cat! A big, fat, tame pussycat!
  • [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!


  • Dung Beetle 1: Stinky does not speak.
  • Dung Beetle 2: It rolls like a little ball.


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...!
[the music begins Lovin' You by Minnie Riperton playing]
Benny: Bridget.
Bridget: Don't stare at my spots, Benny, my eyes are up here.
[the music stops when Benny hears a crash]

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. We're covert agents. [gets hit by Camo] Ow!

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 1,000,000,000 times.

Scab and Scraw: [finding Ryan on a tree branch] Ooh, a lion cub.
Scab: We must tell Kazar.

[cut to Benny, with the dung beetles]
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! [to the dung beetles] What is goin' on here?!
Dung Beetle 1: Stinky does not speak.
Dung Beetle 2: It rolls like a little ball.
Benny: Wait, wait. You guys think I'm a...?
Dung Beetle 1: [to Benny] Achtung, Stinky!
Dung Beetle 2: Less talk, more roll.
Dung Beetle 1: Ja.
All: Roll! Roll!
Benny: What the...? [grunting] Hey!
Dung Beetle 1: Rolling the dung is good for tight buns! [chuckling, rolling away]
Benny: I'll give you something to roll about! [spins around to the ground, shuddering] 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.

Blag: Kazar, I think you'll be very pleased with what I brought you.
Kazar: What's this? Where's the other lion?
Blag: Right. Well, I was gonna tell you. There was this cliff and, uh– [Kazar huffs angrily at Blag] Why are you looking at me like that?
Kazar: That's twice you've been out of step today, Blag! [As Kazar speaks, Blag slips off the edge, but holds on] You klutz. You know we can't ascend to the top of the food chain, until we eat a lion! Well, at least there'll be enough for my ascension.
Blag: What about the rest of us?
Kazar: Step-kick, pivot-kick! [Kazar kicks Blag's face, then Blag falls down in front of Ryan, Bridget, and Larry] Ha-ha!
Blag: [twists his hoof] Ouch! I twisted a hoof!
Kazar: You work, and you work. Then they break your heart.
Blag: [off-screen] There goes my career!
Kazar: Prepare the sacrifices!

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 twice again] 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: Whatever you just did, 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!
Larry: Whoa-ah. Ugh! Uh, oh.
