Eliza Thornberry[edit]

  • [narrating] I'm Eliza Thornberry, part of your average family. I've got a dad and a mom and a sister. There is Donnie. We found him. And Darwin. He found us. We travel all over the world. See, my dad hosts this nature show and my mom shoots it. And along the way, something amazing happened. I freed a warthog who was really a shaman. Shaman Mnyambo. He granted me the power to talk to animals. It's really cool... but totally secret. And that was just the beginning of my biggest adventure ever.
  • Sometimes I wish I could just tell them I talk to animals.
  • There were these three cheetah cubs I knew. Like kittens, only, only wild. We were running when we heard shots. And a man dropped out of a helicopter on a rope ladder and, grabbed the one I named Tally. I tried to save him, but they cut the ladder and... I fell. Tally was gone.
  • Stop! Wait! I’ll tell you! I know these things because... I can talk to animals.


Debbie: Donnie, this is no time for the wedgie dance!

Marianne: Eliza, I don't want you going out in the Savanna at night.
Debbie: Yeah, right. She and the monkey are always sneaking off.
Cordelia: What?!
Eliza: Debbie!
Debbie: Hey! I've covered long enough. Do you know that she once fed one of my protein bars to a Komodo dragon? And back in... wherever land that was, she rode a Siberian tiger. Oh, oh, and ask her about the time that she was dancing with a bunch of crazy dingoes.
Marianne: What?
Debbie: Oh, that is not even the half of it, Mom.
Nigel: Eliza?
Eliza: Thanks a lot, Deb.
Marianne: Nigel, I... I don't know what to do.
Cordelia: Well, I do! It is perfectly obvious that Elizabeth has no regard for her own safety. We have discussed this for years. She needs to be in a structured environment. One such as a boarding school back in London.
Debbie: Oh, hold on! She messes up, and she gets to go to boarding school?!
Nigel: Mumsy, that's rather drastic.
Cordelia: Nigel, need I remind you that it was in the confines of boarding school that you received your education not here in the wild. Surely you don't think it's civilized for a girl to play with cheetahs and chimpanzees?
Debbie: HELLO?! [jumps on the table making monkey sounds] What about me?! Do I look civilized?
Cordelia: Frankly, no. But I'm afraid it's much too late for you.
Eliza: Mom, dad, I can't leave. Tally never would've been out on the plains if it wasn't for me. It's all my fault.
Marianne: Eliza, how can it be your fault?
Eliza: But I have to go back out there!
Marianne: No! We make these rules for a reason, Eliza. And if I have to send you away to be safe, I will.
Eliza: Dad? Please.

Marianne: [going through the family albumn] We agreed when we took this job that we wouldn't split up the family. We keep the children with us on the road.
Nigel: I remember, dearest.

Sarah: That's my monogram! Who are you and why are you wearing my new blazer? [takes the hat off Darwin's head; shocked gasp] There's an ape in my uniform! Give it back! Give it back!
Jane: Did it escape from the zoo?
Eliza: Darwin, NO!
[Darwin throws a roll at Sarah in the forehead, Sarah growls angrily and picks a plate of food to throw at him, prompting him to duck, and hitting Victoria in the face]
Victoria: Food fight, everyone!
[All the girls start throwing food around to each other while Sarah chases after Darwin]
Mrs. Fairgood: [ringing her bell to stop the fight] Girls! Girls! Food is for eating! Food is for... [gets food thrown in her face]

Darwin: Where's the bathroom?
Thunder: You're standing on it!

Victoria: However did you smuggle a chimp in your suitcase?
Eliza: Darwin decided to... Oh, uh, I mean it was easy. Hiding him from Sarah, that's a different story.
Jane: Ooh! Miss Sarah Wellington thinks she's the bee's knees.

Sarah: I still can't believe you harbored a wild animal in my room and I never... [shrieks] There are peas in my bed!

Cordelia: Radcliffe, you never told me how to land!
Debbie: Grandmumsy?
Radcliffe: It’s all in the knees, Cordie!
Debbie: Colonel?
Radcliffe: You’re looking well, Deborah. Do we have a kiss for grandpapa?
Cordelia: Oh! [lands on the ground with a grunt] I knew I shouldn’t have brought the good China. [later, in the Comvee, pouring a cup of tea] Debbie, dreadful news. Your sister has run away from Lady Beatrice's.
Radcliffe: Under cover of night, with Darwin.
Debbie: Excuse me? Uh, did you say the monkey got to go to London?!
Marianne: [on radio] Debbie, are you there? Over.
Debbie: Mom, guess who's here?
Cordelia: [whispering] There's no need to alarm your parents.
Radcliffe: What your grandmama means is there's no need to have Marianne blame her... a minute earlier than necessary. Sorry.
Cordelia: [giving her husband an annoyed look; whispering] Eliza was seen boarding a train heading to the Congo. We'll take her back to London the minute she arrives.
Marianne: Debbie, who's there?
Debbie: Uh, some really cute bush babies.
Marianne: Debbie, did I just hear you call a wild animal "cute"?
Nigel: That's called sarcasm, dearest. [laughs]

Debbie: Uh, uh, uh. Don't go in there.
Eliza: [opens the Comvee door, seeing her grandparents sleeping] What are they doing here?!
Debbie: Taking you back to England. Not that you deserve to go.
Eliza: Well, I'm not going back. I came back to find Tally and that's what I'm going to do. [opens up a laptop] Just need Dad's help.
Debbie: [growls] What is wrong with you?! You finally get a chance to escape our rolling jail, and instead you come back like some freaky-homing pigeon. You ruined the family name and wrecked my chance of ever getting out of this place. I don't know about you, but I am not gonna slow dance at my prom with some purple-butt baboon. [closes the laptop]
Eliza: Debbie, leave me alone! I'm going to find Mom and Dad, and you're not going to stop me.
Debbie: Oh, yes, I am!

Marianne: Both of my daughters are missing?!
Cordelia: [through radio] But the good news is, the chimpanzee turned up in England. But never mind that now. Debbie left a note. [reads note] "Don’t freak." That’s Deborah talking, not I. [continues reading] "Took the Congo-com to find Donnie, who followed Eliza. She’s going to some valley. Later. Debbie."
Marianne: My children are in the jungle, alone?

Debbie: [brushing her hair] Here I am driving around this sweaty jungle, looking for my ungrateful sister when I could be sitting in front of the A/C watching part two of "Before They Were Teens." [sniffs] Ew, who smells? 'Cause it's completely overpowering my vanilla-ginger body splash.

Debbie: Eliza?! Donnie! I have had enough of this! [scoffs] I am not in the mood! Oh, great. I'm turning into mom.

Tally: Eliza, we have to get out of here!
Eliza: What do you mean?
Sloan: [opens the door and enters] Hello, Eliza.
Eliza: Sloan. This cheetah cub, where-- where did you get him?
Sloan: I picked him up on the Savanna.
Eliza: You bought him?
Sloan: [chuckles] No. I picked him up... right off the ground.
Bree: I told Sloan he shouldn't cut that rope ladder!
Eliza: [gasps in shock and angry] It was you!
Sloan: Yes. Thank you so much for returning my knife to me.

Darwin: What's going on? I don't like the way that man is looking at us.
Tally: Eliza, I saw them with fire sticks and then there was a loud sound.
Eliza: Explosives? Oh, we've got to get out of here!
Tally: I'll help.
Eliza: Go, Tally, go. That's it.
Darwin: Yes, that's it. Get the cheetah involved again. If we hadn't gone out looking for them that night we wouldn't be in this mess!
Eliza: Don't you blame Tally.
Darwin: Oh, I'm not. Tally didn't sneak out without permission, Tally didn't run away from boarding school, Tally didn't trust those awful people who clearly don't like animals!
Eliza: I thought they were like me!
Darwin: When are you going to see that no one's like you? What more do you need? The shaman gave you a gift. Use it!
Eliza: Darwin, please!
Darwin: You know what I think? You don't know WHAT to do with your powers!
Eliza: [irritated] DARWIN, for once in your life, just be QUIET!

Debbie: You expect me to believe that a couple of years ago you freed a warthog but was really a magic man who made it so you could talk to animals but you had to keep it a secret or else there'd be some tornado thing and you would lose your powers?
Eliza: Well... yeah.
Debbie: I knew it! That's why you're always sneaking out all the time with Darwin! Oh, and I have a few things to say to that monkey. Tell him that I don't appreciate it when he leaves pizza crusts under the seat cushions. Go ahead, tell him.
Eliza: Debbie, I broke the rule! I told about my powers, so I lost them.
Debbie: Oh my gosh. You did that, for me?
Eliza: [nods yes] I can't talk to Darwin anymore. And the last thing I said to him was really mean. Now I-I can't even tell him I'm sorry.

Eliza: It's a trap. They're all going to die and I can't even warn them.
Debbie: But can't you, like, make elephant noises or something?
Eliza: Debbie, I can't talk to them! How can I help them? You don't understand. Shaman Mnyambo told me in a dream that he gave me my gift for a reason. It doesn’t matter now. I lost it.
Debbie: Okay, enough with the "poor me, I lost my magic powers" bit. Are you just going to sit there?
Eliza: What am I supposed to do? I'm just an ordinary girl now.
Debbie: You? Eliza, ever since you were a little kid you dragged home birds with broken wings and creepy toads and stuff. You didn't have special powers then. You just cared. Trust me, you were never ordinary.

Sloan: You will regret this!
Eliza: I DON'T CARE! What you're doing is AWFUL!
Sloan: And what you're doing is STUPID! Shame you won't be here to help me carry out the ivory. [throws Eliza into the river]

Debbie: I don't know how I'm going to keep this secret of yours.
Eliza: Well, you have to. I kind of agreed to a condition when I got my powers back.
Debbie: Uh-huh.
Eliza: You can never tell anyone my secret...because, if you do...
Debbie: Yeah?
Eliza: You'll turn into a baboon. [runs off]
Debbie: [shocked] A BABOON?! [shouting] I am not going to spend the rest of my life with a big purple BUTT!
