DialogueEdit

[First lines of the film]
Freaky Mammal 1: Well, why not call it "The Big Chill" or "The Nippy Era"? I'm just sayin', how do we know it's an ice age?
Freaky Mammal 2: [angry] Because...of all...THE ICE!
Freaky Mammal 1: Well, things just got a little chillier.

Papa Start: [angrily] HEY! DO THE WORLD A FAVOR: [Manfred looks at him angrily] MOVE YOUR ISSUES OFF THE ROAD!
Manfred: [angry] If my trunk was that small, I wouldn't draw attention to myself, pal.
Papa Start: [panicking; breaths] Hey, g-give me a break. [breaths again] We…We've been waddlin' all day.
Manfred: Oh, go ahead. Follow the crowd. It'll be quieter when you're gone. [walks away].
Papa Start: Ehh, c'mon. If he wants to freeze to death, let him.

Carl: Look, we're gonna break your neck, so you don't feel a thing. How's that?
Manfred: Wait a minute, I thought rhinos were vegetarians.
Sid: An excellent point.
Manfred: [to Sid] Shut up.
Carl: Who says we're gonna eat him after we kill him?
Frank: Yeah, c'mon, move it.
Manfred: [darkly] You know, I don't like animals that kill for pleasure.
Carl: Save it for a mammal that cares.
Sid: I'm a mammal that cares.
Manfred: [pause] Okay, look. If either of you get across that sinkhole in front of you, you get the sloth.
Sid: That's right, you losers! You take one step and you're dead! [throws a rock which bounces off the sinkhole instead of sinking] You were bluffing, huh?
Manfred: Yeah. Yeah, that was a bluff.
[Sid quickly rushes back behind him]
Carl: Get him!

[After Manfred defeats the Brontotheres]
Sid: WHOO-HOO! We did it! We did it! What? What? [Manfred and Sid falling off, and screaming. While hanging onto Manfred's trunk] You have beautiful eyes.
Manfred: Get off my face.
Sid: Whoa? You and me. We make a great team. What do you say we head south together?
Manfred: [sarcastically] Great. Yeah! Hey! Jump on my back and relax the whole way.
Sid: Oh, Wow, really?
Manfred: No.
Sid: Wait, are you going south? The change of seasons, migration instincts. Any of this a-ringin' a bell?
Manfred: [sarcastically] I guess not. Bye.
Sid: Okay then. Thanks for the help. I can take it from here. [looks up at Carl and Frank, still at the top of the cliff]
Carl: Hey, you overgrown weasel! Wait till we get down there!
Sid: Oh-ho-ho-ho-ho. That south thing is way overrated. The heat, the crowds-who needs it? Isn’t it great? You and me, two bachelors knocking about the wild?
Manfred: No. You just want a bodyguard so you don't become somebody's side-dish.
Sid: You’re a very shrewd mammal. Okay you lead the way, Mr. Big, uh...I didn't get the name.
Manfred: Manfred.
Sid: Manfred? Yuck, man. How about Manny the Moody Mammoth? Manny the melancholy? Manny the...[gasps as Manfred, now called Manny, gives him a glare, and climbs up the tree]
Manfred: [pulls the branch with his trunk] Stop following me. [shaking him off the tree abruptly]
Sid: Okay, okay, so you’ve got issues. You won’t even know I'm here. I'll just zip the lip. When I say Mmph, I "Mmph".

Soto: Look at the cute little baby, Diego. Isn't it nice he'll be joining us for breakfast?
Diego: It wouldn't be breakfast without him.
Soto: Especially after his daddy wiped out half our pack. And wears our skin to keep warm. An eye for an eye, don't you think?
Diego: Let's show that human what happens when he messes with sabers.
Soto: Alert the troops. We attack at dawn. And Diego: bring me the baby, alive. If I'm going to enjoy my revenge, I want it to be fresh.

Sid: Phew! I'm wiped out.
Manny: That's your shelter?
Sid: You're a big guy. and you got a lot of wood. I'm a little guy!
Manny: You got half a stick.
Sid: But with my little stick and my evolved brain- [pokes his own eye with the stick] Ow! I shall create fire!
Manny: Fascinating...
Sid: We'll see if brains triumph over brawn tonight. [breaks the stick in half] Now, won't we?
[Cuts to rain. Sid attempts to light the fire with his stick while Manny watches from his shelter]
Manny: [sarcastically] Hey. I think I saw a spark.
Sid: [looks down, but the firewood hasn't erupted in flames. He gives up and decides to sleep with Manny] Any change I could squeeze in there with you, Manny, ol' pal?
Manny: Oh, isn't there someone else you could annoy? Friends? family? Poisonous Reptiles?
Sid: My family abandoned me. They just kind of migrated without me. You should see what they did to me last year. [adjusts Manny's trunk as his personal cot] They woke up early and tied my hands and feet and they gagged me with a field mouse, covered their tracks, went through water so I'd lose their scent, and...well, who needs 'em, anyway? [Manny drops Sid off of his trunk] So what about you? Do you have family? [shis causes Manny to remember his past. He decides to forget about it and goes back to sleep] Okay, you're tired. I see. We'll talk more in the morning. [it starts to hail, dropping a bunch on Sid's head] Ow! Ow, ow! Ow! Ow, ow! Manfred? Manfred? Could you scooch over a drop? Come on! Nobody falls asleep that fast! Manny! [then heads towards Manny, using his tail as an umbrella]

Manny: What are you doing? Just drop it on the ledge.
Sid: [puts Roshan up and starts crawling] Should we make sure they found him?
Manny: Good idea.
Sid: Oh, no, no, no! No, no, wait, wait, wait, wait! [Manny puts Sid up with his trunk and starts screaming] Don't spear me! [closes his eyes and then sees something] Oh, this is a problem.
Manny: Now, what? [looks at the empty campsite] Aww, that's perfect.

Diego: [about the humans] I told you they were gone.
Manny: Well, look who it is. Don't you have some poor defenseless animal to disembowel?
Sid: They couldn't be far. I mean, they went this way, or this way?
Diego: You don't know much about tracking, do you?
Sid: Hey, I'm a sloth. I see a tree, eat a leaf, that's my [[1]] Tracking.
Diego: You didn't miss them by much. [inspects a stick] It's still green. They headed north two hours ago.
Sid: [sticks a couple of twigs in his mouth, pretending to be Diego] "Hey, it's still green! They headed north two hours ago!"
[Roshan laughs, and flings a fish at Manny's face]
Diego: You don't need this aggravation. [fish falls off of Manny’s face] Give me the baby. I can track humans down a lot faster than you can.
Manny: And you're just a good citizen helping out, right?
Diego: I just know where the humans are going.
Manny: Glacier Pass. Everybody knows they have a settlement on the other side.
Diego: Well, unless you know how to track, you'll never reach them before the pass closes up with snow, which should be, like...tomorrow. So, you can give that baby to me or go get lost in a blizzard. It's your choice.
[Manny pick up Roshan and Diego growls. And then Sid holds Roshan in hands]
Manny: Here's your little bundle of Joy. We’re returning it to the humans.
Sid: [to Diego] Awww, the big bad tigey-wigey gets left behind. [pets Diego] Poor Tigey-Wigey!
Manny: Sid, "Tigey-Wigey" is gonna lead the way.
[Diego smirks at Sid]
Sid: Uh, uh, Manny, can I-can I-can I talk to you for a second?
Manny: [passing] No. The sooner we find the humans, the sooner I get rid of Mr. Stinky Drool-face and the baby too. [walks off]
Diego: [to Sid] You won't always have Jumbo around to protect you. And when that day comes, I suggest you watch our back...'cause I’ll be chewing on it.
Manny: [off-screen] Hey, Uber-tracker! Up front where I can see you.
Sid: [to himself] Help me.

Diego: Its nose is dry.
Sid: That means there's something wrong with it.
Diego: Someone should lick it, just in case.
Sid: I'll do it.
Manny: Hey, he's wearing one of those baby thingies.
Sid: So?
Manny: So, if he poops, where does it go?
Sid: [slight pause] Humans are disgusting.
Manny: [to Sid] Okay, you. Check for poop.
Sid: Hey, why am I the poop-checker?!?!
Manny: [right in Sid's face] Because returning the runt was your idea, because you're small and insignificant, and because I'll pummel you if you don't!
Sid: Why else?
Manny: NOW, SID!

[Roshan's stomach growled]
Sid: I bet he's hungry.
Manny: How about some milk?
Sid: Ooh, I'd love some!
Diego: Not you, the baby!
Sid: Well, I ain't exactly lactating right now, pal!
Diego: You're a little low on the food chain to be mouthin' off, aren't ya...?!
Manny: ENOUGH! [echoes]

[Sid smashes the watermelon on the ground]
Diego: AAH, Sid! Now we gotta find more food!
[Manny, Sid and Diego looks at Roshan eating the melon and saw the dodos running]
Dodos: Right, more to the right! More to the right!
Manny: [sarcastically] Hey, look at that. Dinner and a show.
Dodos: Left, left, left! [screaming and falling]

[After Diego attacks Zeke in defense]
Diego: What the-?
Zeke: Go ahead, slice me! It'll be the last thing you ever do.
Diego: I'm working here you waste your fur.
Oscar: Frustrated, Diego? Tracking down helpless infants too difficult to you?
Diego: What are you two doing here?
Oscar: Soto's getting tired of waiting.
Zeke: Yeah, Yeah, He said, "Come back with the baby...OR DON'T COME BACK AT ALL!" [laughs]
Diego: Well, I have a message for Soto; Tell him I'm bringing the baby...and tell him I'm bringing...a mammoth.
Zeke: A mammoth?
Oscar: Mammoths never travel alone.
Diego: Well this one does, and I'm leading him to Half Peak.
Zeke: Mmm...Look at all that meat. LET'S GET 'EM!
Diego: Not yet! We'll need the whole pack to bring this mammoth down, get everyone ready. Now!
[The tigers leaves, Diego look around and go back down to Manfred and Sid, and went back to sleep in his spot]

[Morning arrives, Manny wakes up and feels for Roshan in his trunk, only to discover that Roshan is gone. He stomps over to the sleeping Diego who wakes up with a startle]
Manny: Where's the baby?!
Diego: You lost it?
[They look at each other and notice Sid is not there]
Both: [shouting angrily] SID!
[Scene shows Sid and Roshan in a jacuzzi like mud hot spring; using the baby as a 'chick magnet' to attract two female sloths]
Rachel: Oh, he's lovely. Positively adorable!
Jennifer: [baby-talking to Roshan] Hello, Pumpkin. Hello, little bunny baby...
Rachel: [to Sid] Where did you find him?
Sid: Ah, poor kid all alone in the wild. Sabers were closing in on him, so I just snatched him!
Rachel: Oh, so brave of you!
Sid: Yeah, well...He needed me... [wistfully] And I only wish I had one of my own, too...
Jennifer: [excited] Really?! [she calms herself down] I'm...I'm attracted that quality in a male.
Sid: Atlas, [unaware that Roshan is sinking into the mud hot spring] who wouldn't want a family, I always say?
Rachel: [gushing] You caring for a baby...
Sid: [notices that Roshan the baby is gone and pulls the muddy baby up] Yeah, well...you know... [Roshan playfully throws mud on Sid's face; they both laugh as he grabs Manny's trunk to wipe the mud off his face like a rag] Cute kid, huh? So, as I was saying ladies...uh... [realizing Manny's trunk and gasps] Oh, hey! Hi, Manny!
Manny: [taking Roshan away] What's the matter with you?
Sid: Excuse me, ladies. You just keep marinating and I’ll be right back. [gets out of mud pool and fall down and Sid get up] Sexy. [walks off]
Jennifer: He's not much to look at, but it’s so hard to find a family guy.
Rachel: Tell me about it. All the sensitive ones get eaten.
Sid: [cut scene walk over to Manny and stop] No, no, no, no, no! Manny, Manny, Manny, please, I'm begging you, I need him!
Manny: What, a good looking guy like you?
Sid: Oh, you say that but, you don't mean it.
Manny: No, seriously, look at you. Aw, those ladies, they don't stand a chance.
Sid: You have a very cruel sense of humor.
Manny: Hey, don't let me cramp your style.
Sid: [shakes Manny’s trunks] Oh, thanks, Manny, you’re a pal. You're the best.
Manny: Without Pinky. [takes back Roshan and walks off]
Sid: Manny, Manny, I need him! Fine. [humming] So, ladies, where were we?
[Shows that Sid entered the wrong mud spring, being used by the two Brontotheres]
Frank: Carl?
Carl: Easy, Frank. [they growl and Sid screams in horror]
[Cut to Manny and Roshan]
Manny: [while tossing Roshan in the air] Pretty tail walk by, suddenly he moves like a cheetah. And that tiger...Yeah, Mr. Greater Tracker. Can't even find a sloth. What am I, a wet nurse? [Roshan giggles] What are you looking at, bone bag? Look at you. You're gonna grow into a great predator, huh? I don't think so. What have you got? You got a little patch of fur. No fangs, no claws. You're folds of skin wrapped in mush. What's so threatening about you? [Roshan suddenly hugs his trunk to soften Manny for a moment] Hey, does this look like a petting zoo, huh? [Roshan pulls a nose hair out of Manny's trunk, causing him to yelp in pain, which made Roshan giggle] Okay, all right, wise guy. You can earned a time-out. [puts Roshan on the tree with his trunk, only for him to giggle some more] Oh, you think that's funny? How about this? [puts him on top of the branch] You'll be a little snack for the owls. [calms down as Roshan continues to giggle] You're a brave little squirt, I’ll give you that.
Sid: [runs and finds Diego] Thank goodness, thank goodness. [pretending that Diego is eating him] Oh, no! A tiger! Help, help!
Diego: Where's the baby?
Sid: [whispers] Oh, he's fine. Manny has him. Just put me in your mouth. Hurry up. [still pretending Diego eating him] Oh, he got me! Oh, help...!
Diego: Get away from me.
Carl: Went this way. Over here.
[Sid kicks Diego's butt, and Diego roars and run back to Sid. Carl and Frank stop running, and see Diego biting Sid's neck as he plays dead]
Frank: Oh, no, Carl! The tiger beat us to him!
Carl: [walk over to Diego and Sid] Wait a minute. [smells Sid] Ugh! He’s dead alright.
Frank: Oh, Carnivores have all the fun.
Sid: [wakes up] Oh, gosh, I hate breaking their hearts like that. Ah, but you know how it is. All right, thanks. You can put me down now.[Diego does not let go] Manny! Manny!
Manny: Guys, I thought we were in a hurry. And Diego, spit that out. You don't know where it's been.
[Diego spits Sid out]
Sid: Boy! For a second there, I actually thought you were gonna eat me!
Diego: I don't eat junk food.
Sid: Thought you were gonna...I thought you were gonna...Were you?

[Sid and Roshan are having a fight]
Manny: Don't make me reach back there!
Sid: Yeah, well, he started it!
Manny: I don't care who started it, I'll finish it!

Manny: [passes a Stonehenge-like structure] Modern architecture. It'll never last.

Sid: Hi, Manny. Hi, Diego.
[Manny, Diego and Roshan watches Sid get his head stuck in a hole in the wall]
Manny and Diego: Hey, Sid.
[The gang come across Scrat who is trying to bury his acorn]
Manny: You're lost, aren't 'cha?
Diego: No. I know exactly where we are.
Manny: Ask him directions.
Scrat: [notices them] Huh?
Diego: I don't need directions!
Manny: Fine. Then, I'll ask him. [to Scrat] Hey, buddy, have you seen any humans go by here?
Scrat: [shakes his head] Uh-uh. Hmm... [holds up his finger as if having an idea, a game of charades]
Sid: Oh, I love this game! I love it! Okay, okay. 3 words. 1st word. [Scrat steps his foot] Uh, "stomp"! [Scrat angrily jumps around] No, no! "Stamp", "stamp"!
Manny: Let me try. [Scrat puts his acorn over his back] Uh... "pack"!
Sid: Good one, Manny. [Scrat nods, then pretends to be a saber-toothed tiger] "Pack of..." long teeth and claws. [Diego looks at his claws] Pack of wolves. Pack of...
Manny: Uh, pack of bears? Pack of fleas!
[Scrat angrily points at Diego, meaning "Pack of tigers"]
Sid: Pack of whiskers, pack of noses.
Manny: Pachyderm.
Sid: Pack of flies! Pack of troubles! Pack of wallops! [Diego flicks Scrat into the mountain slope, screaming] Pack of birds! Pack of flying fish!

[Further into the journey, Diego walked a distance from the group, looking for where to travel next. But as he reached a snowy hill, he spotted the human tribe, not far away. Surprised to see them there, Diego turned back and saw Manfred approaching. Diego looked around, trying to find a way to lead them away from the humans. He spotted a dark cave nearby and thought of plan]
Diego: Hey! Great news! I found a shortcut.
Manny: What do you mean "shortcut"?
Diego: I mean faster than the long way around.
Manny: Ow! I know what a short cut is!
Diego: Look, either we slip through there and beat the humans to Glacier Pass, or we take the long way and miss them.
Manny: Through there? What do you take me for?
Diego: This time tomorrow, you could be a free mammoth. Or a nanny. Personally, I never get tired of peekaboo.
Sid: Hey, guys. Guys, check this out. [groans with neck icicles]
Manny: Sid, the tiger found a shortcut.
Sid: [looked up at the mountain as if they will have to climb] No thanks. I choose life.
Diego: [glaring at him where he stands so Sid almost runs into him when turning] Then I suggest you take the shortcut.
Sid: [becoming suspicious] Are you threatening me?
Diego: MOVE, SLOTH! [echoes and an ice shelf above them starts to crumble]
Sid: [patting Diego's head] Way to go, tiger!
Manny: Quick, inside!
[They rush in the cave and some rocks fall and block the entrance]
Manny: Okay, I vote shortcut.

Diego: [to Manny and Sid as they walk through the icy cave] Come on, guys. Stick together. It is easy to get lost in here.
Sid: [ignoring Diego and focusing on the ice formations, he hits his nose really hard on a slab of ice; sticks out tongue] Uugh... [falls to the ground, unconscious. Unbeknownst to he, his tongue, which had flopped out of his mouth when knocked himself out, had stuck to the ice floor. A few seconds later, he feels woozy and tries to get up but his tongue is stuck] Ugh. [realizing, he tries to pull it off; gets free, stands up and looks around for his friends] Uh, guys? [screams looking at a fish] Heh-heh, a fish. [screams again after he looks at the dinosaur, he then looks at his frozen ancestors and looks at a big spaceship]
Roshan: [looking at the spaceship and makes a Spock hand figure] Ba.
Manny: [to Sid] Will you keep up please?!? It's hard enough to keep a track of one baby.
[Then to their surprise, Roshan slides on the ice before waving to them]
Manny, Sid and Diego: AAAH!
Roshan: WHEE!
[The group then slides on the ice to catch the baby with crazy situations]
Sid: [catching up with Roshan] Woo-hoo! Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo! Gotcha! [successfully grabs Roshan, only for Sid to fall into the hole as the baby continues sliding on the ice]
[Then Sid, Diego, and Manny crashed into each other while sliding]
Sid: [grabbing onto Manny] Captain, iceberg ahead!
[They slid up to the giant ice, which is about to break]
Diego: Oh, no.
[The ice breaks and lands on the slide, giving the group more rides. Then Roshan was lifted in the air as he finished sliding. Then we see Scrat, who was stuffing his acorn on the ice wall, only for him to scream at the incoming group and tried to pull his acorn out. Then Sid crashed onto the ice wall where Scrat is, followed by Diego. Manny has just saved the baby and survived icy slides...then crashes into the ice wall]
Diego: WHOA! WOO! Yeah! Who's up for Round 2?! [Manny and Sid angrily stare at him] Oh. T-T-Tell the kid to be more careful.
[Scrat also came out of snow and wipe it off. Scrat looking for his acorn and laughing, and hit in the head with an acorns drawing and faints]

[The group moved on, Manny, Sid, Diego and Roshan reaching a vast cave filled with paintings done by humans of various animals]
Sid: [showing the baby cave painting] Look, look. Tigers. Eesh! [Roshan whimpers] No, it's okay, it's okay. Look, the tigers are just playing tag with an antelope. [pauses] With their teeth.
Diego: Come on, Sid, let's play tag. You’re it.
Sid: [giggles] Sure. okay, okay, okay, where's are the sloths? You never see any sloths. Have you ever noticed? Oh! Look, Manny, a mammoth!
Manny: [sarcastically] Ooh, somebody pinch me.
Sid: Hey, hey, this fat one looks just like you! Aw, he's got a family. [Manny suddenly stops and looks at the paintings of the mammoths] Oh, and he's happy. Look, he playing with his kid. See, Manny? That's your problem. That's what mammoths are supposed to do.
Diego: Sid.
Sid: Find a she-mammoth, have little baby mammoths...
Diego: Sid.
Sid: What?
Diego: Shut up.
Sid: But... [notices Manny discovering his past] Oh.
[As Manny stared at the drawings, the still images began to move in his mind, coming alive. He remembered playing happily in a lush meadow with his wife and his child, romping in the sunshine, until a horde of humans ran out of the woods, waving their spears fiercely. Manny faced off against the hunters, trying to hold them back with his imposing tusks. Behind him, his family ran to find shelter. Then Manny heard a deep, terrified scream. He wheeled around and saw that his mate and child were trapped against a rock wall by humans aiming spears at them. Before Manny could move, another group of humans dropped heavy rocks from atop the rock wall. Bellowing in anguish, Manny saw his family being crushed by the rocks. His cries shook the landscape, echoing off the rocks all around. Back in the present, the mammoth shook his head, clearing the devastating memory from his mind. He breathed heavily, trying to regain control of his run-away emotions. Sid and Diego stared at Manny with worried eyes. Then they turned back to the painting, clearing their throats uncomfortably. Manfred kept staring at the cave drawings. He gazed at the sketch of the father mammoth cradling his young child in his trunk. Slowly, Manny raised his own trunk toward the illustration. Before he could reach it, Roshan's tiny hand touched the drawing gently. He was standing on his feet, propped up against the cave wall. Surprised, Manny pulled back his trunk. He blinked at the little human boy. Roshan stroked the picture of the baby mammoth with his fingers, glancing back at the mammoth as though he was connecting the two in his mind. Then Roshan stumbled toward Manny, who caught the baby with his trunk. He slowly lifted Roshan off the ground. He curled his trunk, hugging Roshan close, nuzzling his cheek against the baby's head. Sid sniffled, wiping a glob of snot from his nose with his paw onto Diego. Manny swooped Roshan onto his back and walked out of the cave without a word. Sid followed. Diego took one last look at the painting of the mammoth family and let out a sad sigh, then sauntered out of the cave after the others]

Manny: Well, would you look at that. The tiger actually did it. There's Half Peak, next stop, Glacier Pass. How could I ever have doubted you?
Sid: Did you hear that, little fella? You are almost home. [stops as he noticed his feet] My feet are sweating.
Diego: Do we need a news flash every time your body does something?
Manny: He's doing it for attention, just ignore him.
Sid: Seriously. My feet are really hot. Ow, ow, ow, ow!
[A rumbling sound behind him follows him]
Manny: Tell me that was your stomach.
Diego: Shh.
Sid: I’m sure it was just thunder. From underground?
[Then the geyser from the volcano blasted out of the snow]
Manny, Sid & Diego: RUN!
[The trio run away]
Sid: [running faster] Come on, keep up with me!
Manny: I would if you’re moving?!
[Sid lays down. Then Diego leaps over a river of lava]
Sid: Wow, I wish I could jump like that.
Manny: Wish granted! [kicks Sid in his rear, sending him flying in the air. Sid slides and bumps into a bark wall]
Diego: Come on, move faster!
Manny: Have you noticed the river of lava?! [jumps and Diego tries to jump but can't make it across causing Manny to realize that he can't make it and gives Roshan to Sid] Hold Pinky!
[Manny pushes Diego and Sid to safety, but the ledge beneath Manny gives way and he falls]
Sid: MANNY! [Then Manny is launched by a geyser back onto the higher ground] Manny! Manny, Manny, Manny! You okay?! Come on, come on, say something. Anything!
Manny: You're standing on my trunk.
Sid: What? What? I can't hear you.
Manny: You're standing on my trunk.
Sid: [lets go of the trunk as Manny gasps for air] Oh, you're okay! You're okay!
Diego: Why did you do that? You could've died, trying to save me.
Manny: That's what you do in a herd; you look out for each other.
Diego: [smiles] Well, thanks.
Sid: I don't about you, guys, but we're the weirdest herd I have ever seen.

Zeke: Ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo! I can't wait to get my claws on that mammoth!
Soto: No one touches the mammoth until I get that baby.
[Pauses]
Zeke: First I'm gonna slice its hindquarters in sections. I'll put the white meat in one pile, and the dark meat in another.
Lenny: Hey, knock it off! I'm starving.
Zeke: Next, the shoulders. Occasionally tough, but extremely juicy.
Lenny: I told you to knock it off!
Soto: Save your energy! Mammoths don't go down easy. There is only one way to do it. First you have to force it into a corner. Cut off his retreat, and when you three have it trapped, I'll go for the throat.
[Lenny gulps by the throats. Soto, Zeke and Oscar smiles]

[During the snowstorm at night]
Manny: Guys, we gotta get this kid outta the wind! How much further?
Diego: 3 miles.
Manny: I'm beat. We'll get there in the morning.
[Manny and Diego to see Sid is drawing the sloths with a chalk of ice]
Diego: What are you doing?
Sid: I'm putting sloths on the map.
[Pauses]
Manny: Hey, why don't you make it realistic and draw him lying down?
Diego: And make him rounder. [Manny drew a round body on the sloth] Perfect.
Sid: [sarcastically] Ah-ha! I forgot how to laugh! [colors his body and notices that he can create fire] I'm a genius! [kisses the chalk]
[Next scene, we see a perfect fireplace Sid made]
Sid: From now on, you'll have to refer to me as "Sid, Lord of the Flame"!
Manny: [sarcastically] Hey, Lord of the Flame, your tail's on fire.
[Noticing this, Sid runs around in circles, screaming. Diego grabs Sid and pulls him back into a small pile of snow, extinguishing the fire]
Sid: [sighs in relief] Thank you. From now on I'm gonna call you Diego-
Diego: Lord of "Touch Me and You're Dead". [Sid gasps in fright] Nah, I'm just kiddin', you little knucklehead! [grabs Sid and gives him noogies as he says it]
Manny: Hey, lovebirds. Look at this.
[Roshan start walking]
Sid: I don't believe it. [Diego and Manny smiles] Come here, you little biped. Come here, you little wormy-worm. Come to Uncle Sid. [Roshan walks over to Diego] No, no, no, no, no, no. This way. This way.
Diego: No, no, no. No, go to him. Go to him. [Roshan hugs him] Um...Okay. Good job. Um...keep practicing.
Sid: Look at that. A little guy is growing up.
[Roshan sneezes and yawns]
Manny: All right, come on. Sleep time, Lumpy.
Sid: Look at that big pushover. You know, Diego, I've never had a friend who would risk his life for me.
Diego: Yeah, Manny's...is a good guy.
Sid: Yeah, he is. Well, good night.

Sid: [Licks and clean Roshan] Alright, let's get you all cleaned up. I mean what's your daddy gonna say when we go back smudgy and stinky like this? Okay. Let me just clean that up. That looks good. A little bit here.
Manny: You clean up, nice little fella.
Sid: I think he started to look like me. Hey, Diego, what do you say.
Diego: [pause] Maybe we shouldn't do this.
Sid: Why not?
Diego: Because if we save him, he'll grow up to be a hunter, and who do you think he'll hunt?
Sid: Maybe because we save him he won't hunt us. [Roshan poke in Sid's nose] Ow!
Diego: Yeah, maybe he'll grow fur and a long skinny neck and call you mama!
Manny: [concerned about Diego's behavior] What's your problem?
Diego: Nothing. Let's go. I’m freezing my tail off.
[Soto watches Diego, Manny, and Sid walk. Diego stops walking and then looks up at Soto and tigers. He look down]
Manny: Hey, Diego, you've frozen back there.
Diego: [pause] Get down!
Sid: Huh?
Manny: What?
Diego: Shh! Get down and follow me.
Sid: Hey, hey, what's going on?
Diego: At the bottom of Half Peak...there's an ambush waiting for you.
Sid: What?
Manny: What do you mean ambush? [beat] You set us up.
Diego: It was my job! I was suppose to get the baby, but then...
Manny: You brought us home for dinner!
Sid: That's it, you're out of the herd!
Diego: I'm sorry.
Manny: [pushes Diego against the wall with his tusk] No you're not. Not yet.
Diego: Listen, I can help you.
Manny: Stay close Sid, We can fight our way out of here.
Diego: You can't, the pack's too strong. You have to trust me.
Manny: Trust you?! Why in the world would we trust you?!
Diego: Because I'm your only chance.

Diego: [to his fellow Sabers] Hello, ladies.
Oscar: Hey, look who finally decided to show up.
Soto: Diego. I was beginning to worry about you.
Diego: No need to worry about. In about two minutes you'll be satisfying your taste for revenge.
Soto: Very nice.
Zeke: [spotting Sid] I see the sloth! And he's got the baby!
Soto: Don't give away your positions until you see the mammoth. He's the one we have to surprise.
Diego: You wanna maul something, don't you, Zeke?
Zeke: [whining anxiously] I wanna maul!
Diego: Then what are you waiting for?
[The tigers chase him]
Soto: No, I said wait for the mammoth!
[Diego nods with a shrug. Soto growls, and follows him]

Sid: [To Soto, Zeke, Oscar and Lenny] Sorry, fellas, it got a little frostbite! [leaves]
Soto: GRRRR! Get him!
[Sid runs away laughing and the tigers run after him but suddenly confronted by Manny]
Manny: Surprise! [throws the log at tigers]
Diego: Okay. Follow me. We'll pick up Sid and get outta here while we can.
Soto: Come on, Diego. Let's bring this mammoth down.
Sid: [finds Roshan in the tree] There he is. [Roshan plays "Where's the Baby?"] That's right. Where’s the baby! [sees Zeke creeping up to them] Oh! [as Zeke jumps, Sid grabs Roshan while screaming. But Zeke is now stuck in the tree. Sid smirked with an idea, and jumps on Zeke 3 times] Survival of the fittest! I don't think so. Yeah! [Roshan gives Sid high-five]
[The tigers move closer to Manny, but Diego steps in to face the tigers]
Soto: What are you doing?!
Diego: Leave...the mammoth...alone.
Soto: [last words] Fine, I'll take you down first.
[Soto and Diego began to fight violently until Diego was knocked down. Soto was about to charge at Manny, but Diego sacrificed himself by leaping in front of Manny, causing Soto to claw at Diego, who laid on the snow. Then Sid and Roshan came back to see the fight. Roshan cries at the wounded Diego in horror, which made Soto see them. Sid covers Roshan's mouth as Soto was about to get the baby. But Manny intervened by knocking Soto with his tusks, causing Soto to hit against the wall, and above him were the giant icicles were moving and began to fall on Soto, killing him off-screen. Manny glared at Lenny and Oscar with a threatening gruff, causing the tigers to leave in terror]
Sid: We did it!
[Manny, Sid and Roshan approach Diego]
Diego: We were...some team, huh?
Manny: "Were"? Come on, we're still a team.
Diego: I'm sorry I set you up.
Sid: Ah, you know me, I'm too lazy to hold a runt. [puts Roshan down next to Diego]
[Roshan cries worryingly]
Diego: Hey, knock it off, squirt. You gotta be strong. You have to take care of Manny and Sid. Especially Sid.
Sid: Come on, You can lick this. You're a tiger! Look, I'll carry you. Come on, what do you say? Come on, Diego, come on. Tell him he's gonna be okay, Manny.
Diego: Listen, you have to leave me here. If those humans get through the glares pass, you'll never catch them.
Manny: You didn't have to do that.
Diego: That's what you do in a herd. [passes out]

[Last lines, after returning Roshan to his father, Roshan hugs Sid]
Sid: Don't forget about us, okay?
Manny: [picks up Roshan one last time] We won't forget about you.
[Roshan smiled and hugs Manny before returning to his father. Roshan's father gives the necklace to Manny as a token of their friendship, before they parted their ways]
Sid: [sniffs] Goodbye. Goodbye. Goodbye.
Manny: Sid...
Sid: Bye. Bye. [Roshan plays "Where's the Baby?"] That's right. Where's the baby?
Manny: Come on, Sid, let's head south.
[Manny stops as he sees Diego, fully recovered, walking slowly up to them. He smiles as Roshan was reunited with his father. Roshan smiled as he sees Diego alive and well. He plays "Where's the Baby?" one last time, and so did Diego, until Roshan is out of site]
Sid: Bye. [sniffs]
Diego: Save your breath, Sid. You know humans can't talk.
Sid: [sees Diego alive] Diego? You're okay!
Diego: Nine lives, baby!
Sid: Yay! You're okay, you're okay! [hits Diego] I could kiss ya! [kisses Diego and gets a few of his fur out of his mouth] Yuck, yuck, ptoo!
Manny: Welcome back, partner. Want a lift?
Diego: No thanks. I gotta save whatever dignity I've got left.
Sid: You're hanging out with us now, buddy. Dignity's got nothing to do with it. [to Manny] But I'll take that lift.
Manny: Yeah, climb aboard.
Sid: [climbs on Manny] Yeah! Mush! Or not mush. Either way. [Manny begins to walk, Diego went after them, as "Send Me on My Way" plays again] This is gonna be the best migration ever! I'll tell ya, I'll show you my favorite watering holes. I turn brown when the fungus in my fur dries out.
Manny: Sounds very attractive.
Sid: You know, this whole ice age thing is getting old. You know what I could go for? Global warming.
Manny: Oy.
Diego: Keep dreamin'.
Sid: No, really.
[Manny, Sid and Diego walk into the sunset]
