The jungle is JUMPIN'!


  • [after he, Bagheera, and Mowgli escape from King Louie and company] Whew! [laughs] Man, that's what I call a swingin' party!
  • [after Bagheera tells Baloo that he is taking Mowgli back to the Man Village] Man Village? They'll ruin him! They'll make a man outta him!
  • [after Mowgli climbs on Baloo's tail and tickles him with his feet] No. No, no. No, no. Seriously? Now, you're ticklin'.
  • [as he and Mowgli float down a river] Lemme tell you some'm, Li'l Britches: if you act like that bee acts, uh-uh. You're working too hard. And don't spend your time just looking around.... for something you want that can't be found.
  • [yanks a pouty Bagheera's foot as he smirks] Come on, Baggy! Get with the beat!
  • [furiously] Are you outta your mind? I promised him that he could stay here in the jungle with me!
  • He's a dandy! [Playfully slaps Mowgli on the bottom which sends him rolling around and leaves him knocked out on the ground.]


  • "Pawpaw".... Ha! Of all the silly gibberish.
  • Oh, no, it's Baloo! That shiftless, stupid jungle bum!
  • Now, come on! Up this tree. You'll be safer up there.


  • [Bagheera: So, you can look out for yourself, can you? Heh. So, you want to stay in the jungle, do you?] Yes, I want to stay in the jungle. [Bagheera: D'oh. N-N-Now, for the last time, go to sleep!]
  • [Colonel Hathi: I say. [pokes Mowgli's nose] What happened to your trunk?] [pushes stick away] Hey! Stop that! [Colonel Hathi: [gasps and sputters in shock] A Man-Cub! Oh, this is treason! Sabotage! I'll have no Man-Cub my jungle!] [to Colonel Hathi] It's not your jungle!
  • [to King Louie] But I dunno how to make fire.
  • You told me a lie, Kaa. You said I could trust you.
  • [angrily pushes Shere Khan's paw away] You don't scare me! I won't run from anyone!
  • [to Kaa] Oh, go away and leave me alone!


  • It's like you s-said, you can't trus-s-s-t anyone!


  • Kaa: [after Mowgli learns he has been deceived by the snake] If I never see that skinny little shrimp again, it will be too soon. [slithering away] Oh, my s-ss-s-sacroiliac.
  • Shere Khan: [while Baloo holds his tail] Let go, you big oaf!
  • Mowgli: [angrily hitting Shere Khan's face with a stick] Take that, ya big bully!
  • Akela: [to Bagheera who volunteers to deliver Mowgli to the Man Village] So be it. Now, there's no time to lose. Good luck.


Bagheera: [first lines; as a narrator] Many strange legends are told of these jungles of India, but none so strange as the story of a small boy named Mowgli. It all began when the silence of the jungle was broken by an unfamiliar sound. [At the sound of a baby's cries, Bagheera stops at Baby Mowgli's boat] It was a sound that had never been heard before in this part of the jungle. [Bagheera looks at the boat with Baby Mowgli] It was a Man-Cub! If I had known how deeply I was to be involved, I would have obeyed my first impulse and walked away. [Bagheera turns back on the branch, but Baby Mowgli cries again, making him return. He looks down and Baby Mowgli looks at him playfully] This Man-Cub would have to have nourishment, and soon. It was many days' travel to the nearest Man Village, and without a mother's care, he would soon perish. Then, it occurred to me. A family of wolves I knew had been blessed with a litter of cubs. [the wolf pups play around their mother Raksha, Bagheera is looking at them from the bushes, Bagheera with Baby Mowgli watches from the bushes as the family of wolves walk into their lair and puts the baby boy right before the entrance. He goes back into the bushes and waits, but nothing happens, so he carefully sneaks back over and pushes the basket with his paw. The baby cries out in surprise and Bagheera, alarmed by this, runs away. The wolves come out and look at Baby Mowgli, and Raksha smiles down at him, who now giggles] I knew there'd be no problem with the mother, thanks to maternal instinct, but I wasn't so sure about Rama the father. [Rama comes from the jungle, sniffs suspiciously at the baby Man-Cub, sees the smiling face of Raksha, looks at Baby Mowgli playing with the wolf pups again, and smiles, too, and "My Own Home" starts in the background as the wolves take Baby Mowgli into the wolf lair. 10 years later...] 10 times the rains had come and gone, and I often stopped by to see how Mowgli the Man-Cub was getting along. He was a favorite with all the young wolf cubs of the pack. [Mowgli howls; Raksha and the four young wolves came out of the cave; Grey Brother and Leah playfully tackle and lick Mowgli] No Man-Cub was ever happier. And yet...I knew that someday, he would have to go back to his own kind. [scene switches to Council Rock on a misty, moonlit night, with howling] Then, one night, the Wolf Pack elders met at Council Rock, because Shere Khan, the tiger, had returned to their part of the jungle. This meeting had to change the Man-Cub's entire future.
Akela: Shere Khan will surely kill the boy, and all who try to protect him. Now, are we all in agreement as to what must be done? [wolves solemnly nod] Now, it is my unpleasant duty to tell the boy's father. Rama. Uh, come over here, please.
Rama: Yes, Akela?
Akela: The Council has reached its decision. The Man-Cub can no longer stay with the pack. He must leave at once.
Rama: [shocked] Leave?
Akela: I'm sorry, Rama. There is no other way.
Rama: But-- But the Man-Cub is-- Well, he's like my own son! Surely, he's entitled to the protection of the pack.
Akela: But, Rama, even the strength of the pack is no match for the tiger.
Rama: But the boy cannot survive alone in the jungle.
Bagheera: Akela, perhaps I can be of help.
Akela: You, Bagheera? How?
Bagheera: I know of a Man Village where he'll be safe. Mowgli and I have taken many walks into this jungle together, I'm sure he'll go with me.
Akela: So be it. Now, there's no time to lose. Good luck.
[scene switches to Bagheera and Mowgli at night]
Mowgli: Bagheera... [tiredly stretches] ...I’m gettin' a little sleepy. Shouldn't we start back home?
Bagheera: Mowgli, this time, we're not going back. I'm taking you to a Man Village.
Mowgli: But why?
Bagheera: Because Shere Khan has returned to this part of the jungle, and he has sworn to kill you.
Mowgli: Kill me? But why would he wanna do that?
Bagheera: He hates man, and Shere Khan is not going to allow you to grow up to become a man; just another hunter with a gun.
Mowgli: Aw, we'll just explain to him that I'd never do a thing like that.
Bagheera: Nonsense! No one explains anything to Shere Khan!
Mowgli: Well, maybe so, but I'm not afraid. And besides, I--
Bagheera: [interrupts Mowgli] Now, that's enough. We'll spend the night here. Things will look better in the morning. Man-Cub? Man-Cub! Now, come on. Up this tree. You'll be safer up there.
Mowgli: Uh, I don't want to go back to the man-village.
Bagheera: Go on. Up you go.
Mowgli: [about the tree-trunk] That limb way up there?
Bagheera: That's right. [Mowgli tries to climb the tree-trunk but can't] [chuckles] Is that all the better you can climb?
Mowgli: It's-- It's too big around! And besides, I don't have any claws!
[Bagheera helps and with some grunting, Mowgli scratches upside down a Bagheera's back, yelps, then climbs back on the Bagheera's back gets Mowgli on that limb. Bagheera helps Mowgli goes in the night on a tree branch.]
Bagheera: Now, get some sleep. We've got a long journey ahead us tomorrow.
Mowgli: Uh, I wanna stay in the jungle.
Bagheera: [chuckles, smiles] Huh? Heh, you wouldn't last one day. [he yawns and lies down to sleep]

[Bagheera and Mowgli settle down for the night on a branch of a tree.]
Mowgli: I'm not afraid. I-I can look after myself.
[Kaa the python then appears from the leaves, he smacks his lips when noticing Mowgli, looks towards Bagheera to see him sleeping. He then approaches Mowgli.]
Kaa: S-SS-Say, now! [Mowgli looks up unimpressed, scowls at Kaa, and then sticks his tongue out at him.] What have we here? [chuckles] It's a Man-Cub, a deeliss-ss-see-aws-ss-s Man-Cub.
Mowgli: [angrily pushing Kaa away.] Oh, go away and leave me alone.
Bagheera: [sleeping] That's just what I should do, but I'm not. Now, now, now, please go to sleep, Man-cub!
[Kaa nods his head in agreement and begins to hypnotize Mowgli.]
Kaa: [imitating Bagheera's sentence] Yes-ss-s, Man-Cub. [singing] Please go to sleep. Please go to sleep. [sings this as tuned from "Rock-a-Bye Baby"] Sleep, little Man-Cub, res-ss-st in peas-ss-se.
[Kaa begins to wrap his coils around a hypnotized Mowgli.]
Kaa: S-SS-Sleep. S-SS-Sleep.
Mowgli: [moaning] Ba-Ba-Ba-Bagheera?
[Kaa wraps his tail tightly around Mowgli's throat, choking Mowgli, himself. Bagheera is still unaware at what's happening.]
Bagheera: [sleeping] Oh, now, look, there's no use arguing anymore. Now, no more talk till morning.
[Kaa now completely has a fully hypnotized and smiling Mowgli wrapped around his coils.]
Kaa: [chuckles] He won't be here in the morning.
Bagheera: [glances at Mowgli and Kaa] Huh? Oh, yes, he will-- [suddenly realizes what is happening and fully wakes up; alarmed] KAA!!!! HOLD IT, KAA! [just before Kaa is about to eat Mowgli, Bagheera angrily slaps Kaa's head onto another tree branch, and Kaa bangs his head on it. This makes Mowgli fully conscious and released from Kaa's coils.]
Kaa: Ohhh, my sinus-ss-s! [scowls at Bagheera and moves forward to him] You have just made a s-ss-serious mistake, my friend. A very, s-ss-stupid--
Bagheera: [nervously stammering] Now, Kaa, look, I was--
Kaa: --mis-ss-stake! [Bagheera looks Kaa in his left eye as Kaa begins to hypnotize him] Look me in the eye when I'm speaking to you.
Bagheera: Please, Kaa.
Kaa: Both eyes, if you please. [hypnotizes the panther, and now Bagheera is fully hypnotized and smiling] You have just s-ss-sealed your doom. [Mowgli pushes Kaa's coils off the branch with his feet, causing the snake to comically fall from the tree] Ooooh.
Mowgli: Look, Bagheera! [points at Kaa] Look. Bagheera! Wake up, Bagheera! [smacks both his cheeks with his bare hands]
Bagheera: [wakes up] Uh, duh, wha--?
Kaa: [slithering away, angrily] Just you wait till I get you in my coils! [suddenly stops because a knot on his tail gets stuck between a couple bamboo stems]
Mowgli: [laughs playfully] Bagheera, he's got a knot on his tail.
Kaa: [mimics Mowgli, sarcastically] "Hee-hee-hee! He's got a knot on his tail." [frees his tail, but that causes his whole body to come together like an accordion, then Kaa crawls away now with his bent coils] Ooooh, this is going to slow down my s-ss-slithering. [Mowgli laughs playfully]
Bagheera: [smirks] So, you could look out for yourself, can you? Heh. So, you wanna stay in the jungle, do ya?
Mowgli: Yes. I wanna stay in the jungle!
Bagheera: [annoyed] D'oh! N-NNow, for the last time.... [snaps and both half-smirks (on the right) and half-smiles (on the left)] ....go to sleep! [Mowgli pouts as he tries to get some sleep] Man-Cub, heh! Man-Cub. Ah. [They finally go to sleep and settle down for the night]

[During the inspection of the Jungle Patrol]
Winifred: March, march, march. My feet are killing me.
Elephant #1: [whispers] I’m putting in for a transfer to another herd.
Col. Hathi: Silence in the ranks! [he walks around the rank] Dress up that line. [Elephants raise there rears, he hits a Winifred's back, and she raise there rear] Pull it in, Winifred. [he walks back to front] Inspection, arms!
[Elephants stick their trunks out]
Hathi Jr.: [to Mowgli] Stick your nose out.
Mowgli: Like this?
Hathi Jr.: That's right.
Col. Hathi: [looking closely at a recruit’s trunk] Tsk, tsk, tsk. A dusty muzzle. [to elephant in question] Soldier, remember, in battle, that trunk can save your life. [taps trunk with cane] Take good care of it, my man.
Elephant #2: Yes, sir!
Col. Hathi: Very good. Carry on. [the next recruit has dirty tusks and is lazily chewing on some vegetation until the Colonel clears his throat in serious annoyance] Let's have a little more spit and polish on those bayonets. [taps tusk with cane]
Elephant #3: Yes, sir!
Col. Hathi: Esprit de corps! That's the way that I earned my commission in the Mahajarah's 5th Pachyderm Brigade. Back in '88, it was-- Or was it?
Winifred: [whispering to another elephant] Here it comes. The "Victoria Cross" bit again.
Col. Hathi: It was then I received the Victoria Cross, for bravery above and beyond the call of duty. [chuckles] Those were the days. Discipline! Discipline was the thing! [leans on his bamboo cane] It builds character and all that sort of thing, you know. [his cane snaps in half as he leans on it] Oh. Uh, where was I? Oh, yes. Inspection. [The next recruit is a rough-looking elephant with bent tusks and a black eye] Well, very good. [The next recruit is an elephant with a goofy-looking grin across his face] Wipe off that silly grin, soldier! This is the army. [The elephant's smile droops into a sad frown, making his tusks droop. The next recruit is focused on a fly buzzing around his face which lands on his trunk] Ahem. [swats the fly with his cane] Eyes front. [Next, the lieutenant, with a mop of hair] Tsk, tsk, tsk. Lieutenant, that haircut is not regulation. [messes the hair up] Rather on the gaudy side, don't you think? [Hathi swipes his cane across, giving the lieutenant a military-style flat-topped haircut] There. That's better. [Hathi looks to the left] And as for you-- [Realizes that he's talking to his son Hathi Jr. and looks down] Oh, there you are. [chuckles] Let's keep those heels together, shall we, son?
Junior: OK, Pop--sir!
Col. Hathi: Yes, that's better. [turns to Mowgli] Well, a new recruit, eh? [chuckles and pokes Mowgli's nose with his cane] I say, what happened to your trunk?
Mowgli: Hey! Stop that!
Col. Hathi: [gasps, sputters] A Man-Cub! [picking up Mowgli with his trunk] Oh, this is treason! Sabotage! I’ll have no Man-Cub in my jungle! [puts him down on ground]
Mowgli: It’s not your jungle!
Bagheera: Hold it. Hold it! I can explain, Hathi.
Col. Hathi: Colonel Hathi, if you please, sir.
Bagheera: Oh, yes, yes. Colonel Hathi. The Man-Cub is with me. I'm taking him back to the Man Village.
Col. Hathi: To stay?
Bagheera: You have the word of Bagheera.
Col. Hathi: Good. And remember, an elephant never forgets. [mumbling, and Mowgli crosses his arms and frowns at him] Heh. I don't know what the army's coming to these days. These young whippersnappers, who do they think they are? [clear throat; all the elephants are dosing by now, but wake up as soon as Hathi commands] Let's get on with it. Right face! [bellows] FORWARD, MARCH!
Winifred: Dear, haven't you forgotten something?
Col. Hathi: Nonsense, Winifred, old girl. An elephant never forgets.
Winfred: [about a Hathi Jr.] Well, you just forgot our son.
Col. Hathi: [stammers, he somethings realize to forgot what will happen to Junior] Uh, uh, son-- Son? [fumbles] SON?! [he turns to see Hathi Jr. playing with Mowgli] Oh, yes, yeah, yeah, quite right. Heh-heh! To the rear, march!
[Elephants turns around to lead a Colonel Hathi's way, look for Hathi Jr. still playing with Mowgli]
Hathi Jr.: [to Mowgli] When I grow up, I'm gonna be a Colonel. Just like my--
Col. Hathi: [picking up Junior with his trunk] If I told you once, I've told you a thousand times--!
Hathi Jr.: [seeing other elephants marching into Hathi's rear] Pop! Look out!
[The spectacular crash of the elephants, reused in Goliath II after Jungle Book now takes place. The lazily Elephant #3 chewing on some vegetation while stucking on a Hathi's troopers.]
Hathi Jr.: Gee, Pop. You forgot to say "halt".

Mowgli: [laughing, then whispers to Bagheera on Colonel Hathi] He said that an elephant never forgets. [He laughs hysterically again and stops]
Bagheera: [smirks] It's not funny. Now, let's get out of here before anything else happens.
[Bagheera and Mowgli leave]
Mowgli: Bagheera, where are we going?
Bagheera: You're going back to the Man Village right now!
Mowgli: I'm not going!
Bagheera: [losing his patience] Oh, yes, you are!
Mowgli: [grabbing hold of a tree] I'm stayin' right here!
Bagheera: You're going if I have to drag you every step of the way!
[Bagheera grabs Mowgli by the loincloth with his teeth and tries to tug him away from the tree, but Mowgli refuses to let go.]
Bagheera: [through clenched teeth] Let go, you!
Mowgli: No! You let go of me!
[Mowgli kicks Bagheera in the face. Bagheera pulls so hard that he loses his grip, and falls backward into the river. He tries to get out of the water, but accidentally hits his head on a log.]
Bagheera: [angrily] Oh, that does it! I've had it, Man-cub. For now on, you're on your own. Alone!
Mowgli: Don't worry about me.
[Bagheera leaves and Mowgli walks aimlessly for a while]
Bagheera: [still walking away] Ah. Foolish, Man-Cub.

[After the monkeys have kidnapped Mowgli]
Baloo: Bagheera! [Cut to Bagheera] [off in the distance] BAGHEERAAA!
Bagheera: [Turns around as he hears Baloo yelling his name a mile away] Well, it's happened. Took a little longer than I thought, but it's happened. [Starts running back toward Baloo, who's struggling to climb up the cliff. Bagheera reaches the cliff]
Baloo: [on the edge, screaming loudly] BAAA-GEE-RAH!!!!!!! [Baloo has screamed so loudly in Bagheera's face that the sound leaves him shaken. Baloo then realizes that Bagheera is in front of him] Oh, you heard me, huh?
Bagheera: Mowgli? Mowgli? All right, what happened? Where's Mowgli?
Baloo: They ambushed me; thousands of 'em! I jabbed with my left, then I swung with the right, and then I let--!
Bagheera: Oh, for the last time, what happened to Mowgli?
Baloo: Like I told ya; them mangy monkeys carried him off!
Bagheera: The Ancient Ruins. Oh, I hate to think about what will happen when he meets that King of theirs.

King Louie: Ha-ha! So, you're the Man-Cub? [rolls his eyes] Crazy.
Mowgli: I'm not as crazy as you are. [to the monkeys] Put me down!
[A monkey lets go of Mowgli's ankles, and Mowgli lands flat on his face.]
Mowgli: [angrily shaking a fist at the monkey] You cut that out!
King Louie: [picks up Mowgli by his loincloth] Cool it, boy, and unwind yourself. [scat-sings to himself; Mowgli furiously punches the air] Now, c'mon, let's shake, Cousin. [grabs Mowgli's hand and shakes it]
Mowgli: What do ya want me for?!
King Louie: Word has grabbed my royal ear... [opens Mowgli's mouth] Have a banana. [shoots the banana into Mowgli's mouth] ....that you wanna stay in the jungle.
Mowgli: [mouth full; impressed] Stay in the jungle? I sure do.
King Louie: Good. And ol' King Louie... [scats, then indicates himself with all of his pointy fingers] That's me. ...can fix it for you. [holds up 3 of his fingers] Have 2 bananas. [shoots the banana pair into Mowgli's mouth] Have we got a deal?
Mowgli: [mouth full of bananas] Yes, sir. I'll do a-- [swallows] I'll do anything to stay in the jungle.
King Louie: Well, then, I'll lay it on the line for you. [Begins singing "I Wan'na Be Like You"]

[Bagheera and Baloo overhear what King Louie plans to use Mowgli for]
Bagheera: Fire?!?!? So, that's what that scoundrel's after.
Baloo: I'll tear him limb from limb! I'll beat him up! I'll-- I'll-- [starts dancing to the music] Yeah. Well, man, what a beat.
Bagheera: Will you stop that silly beat business and listen? This will take brains, not brawn.
Baloo: You better believe it, and I'm loaded with both!
Bagheera: Would you listen?
Baloo: Oh, yeah, yeah. [begins sneaking off into the music]
Bagheera: Now, while you create a disturbance, I'll rescue Mowgli. Got that?
Baloo: I'm gone, man. Solid gone.
Bagheera: [alarmed] NOT YET, BALOO!

Bagheera: And furthermore, Baloo, Mowgli seems to have man's ability to get into trouble, and your influence hasn't been exactly--
Baloo: Shh! Keep it down. You're gonna wake Little Buddy.
Bagheera: Awww.
Baloo: Well, he's had a big day. It was a real sockaroo. You know, it ain't easy learnin' to be like me.
Bagheera: Puh! A disgraceful performance; Associating with those undesirable, scatterbrained apes. Huh. I hope Mowgli learned something from that experience.
Mowgli: [sighs, talks in his sleep] Scooby-dooby-dooby-doo.
Baloo: Ha-ha. That's my boy.
Bagheera: Oh, nonsense. [Baloo puts leaves under Mowgli's head.] Baloo, come over here. I'd like to have a word with you.
Baloo: A word? You gonna talk some more? [yawns] All right, what's up, Bagheera?
Bagheera: Baloo, the Man-Cub must go back to the Man Village. [Baloo eats some grapes from a tree] The jungle is not the place for him.
Baloo: I grew up in the jungle. [eats another piece of grapes] Take a look at me.
Bagheera: Yes, just look at yourself. Look at that eye. [Baloo looks himself in the river and sees that he has a black eye.]
Baloo: Yeah. It's beautiful, ain't it?
Bagheera: Frankly, you're a disreputable sight.
Baloo: Well, you don't look exactly like a basket of fruit, yourself.
Bagheera: [looks himself in the river and sees that he also has a black eye.] D'oh! [clears his throat] Baloo, you can't adopt Mowgli as your son.
Baloo: Why not?
Bagheera: How... How can I put it? [Baloo eats a handful of meat] Baloo, birds of a feather should flock together. [Baloo shrugs] You wouldn't marry a panther, would you?
Baloo: I don't know. [chuckling] Come to think of it, no panther ever asked me. [elbows Bagheera and chuckles]
Bagheera: [annoyed] Baloo, y-y-you've got to be serious about this.
Baloo: [seriously] Oh, stop worryin', Baggy. Stop worryin', I'll take care of him.
Bagheera: Yes, like you did when the monkeys kidnapped him, huh?
Baloo: Can't a guy make one mistake?
Bagheera: Not in the jungle. And another thing. Sooner or later, Mowgli will meet Shere Khan.
Baloo: [suddenly very shocked] The tiger? What's he got against the kid?
Bagheera: He hates man with a vengeance, you know that! Because he fears Man's gun and Man's fire.
Baloo: But little Mowgli don't have those things.
Bagheera: Shere Khan won't wait until he does. He'll get Mowgli while he's young and helpless. [raises a paw at Baloo] Just one swipe, and--!
Baloo: [concerned] Oh! Well-- Well, what are we gonna do?
Bagheera [seeing that Baloo is now just as worried about Mowgli as he is] We'll do what's best for the boy.
Baloo: You better believe it. You name it, and I'll do it.
Bagheera: Good. Then make Mowgli go to the Man Village.
Baloo: [angrily] Are you out of your mind?! I promised him that he could stay here in the jungle with me!
Bagheera: Well, that's just the point! As long as he remains with you, he's in danger. So, it's up to you.
Baloo: Why me?!
Bagheera: B-B-B-Because he won't listen to me!
Baloo: [humbled] But I love that kid. [sniffles] I love him like he was my own cub.
Bagheera Then think of what's best for Mowgli, and not yourself.
Baloo: But-- Well, can't-- Well, can't I wait until morning?
Bagheera: It's morning now. Go on, Baloo.
[An emotional Baloo sighs and walks towards Mowgli before looking back at Bagheera with a choked-up facial expression. Bagheera understands that it's really hard for him, but he urges him with a nod.]
Baloo: [sighs; he isn't sure how to tell Mowgli the difficult truth] Oh, boy. Mowgli? Mowgli. Um, it's time to get up.
Mowgli: [wakes up with a yawn] Oh, hi, Baloo.
Baloo: Hi. Hey, rub that old sleep outta your eyes. You and me, we got a long walk ahead of us.
Mowgli: [not really noticing that Baloo is now looking melancholy] Swell! Gee, we'll have lots of fun together!
Baloo: [sadly] Sure, yeah. Yeah. All right, let's hit the trail, kid. See ya 'round, Bagheera.
Mowgli: Well, good-bye, Bagheera. Me and Baloo, we've got things to do.
Bagheera: Goodbye, Man-Cub. And good luck.

[Mowgli and Baloo as they begin their journey to the Man Village.]
Mowgli: Yeah, man! I like being a bear. [Baloo looks worried holds a banana] Where are we going, Baloo?
Baloo: [throw a banana off the ground] Well, ah... it's a... um, well it's sort of new and the--
Mowgli: [holding a Baloo's paw] Oh, I don't care, as long as I'm with you.
[the "My Own Home" theme plays in background again]
Baloo: Mowgli, look buddy, there's something I've got to tell you.
Mowgli: [chasing a butterfly] Tell me what, Baloo?
Baloo: [confused and annoyed rubbing his head, and scratches his chest] Gee whiz. Now, how did old Baggy put? [happily realizes what will Bagheera saids] Ah, Mowgli? Ha! You wouldn't marry a panther, would you?
Mowgli: Heh-heh! Gee, I don't even know what you're talking about. [he jumps didn't catches a butterfly, misses]
Baloo: Mowgli, don't you realize that you're human?
Mowgli: [starts to playful fight a Baloo again] I'm not anymore, Baloo. I'm a bear like you!
Baloo: [nervous starts to panic] Little buddy, look, listen to me.
Mowgli: [excited playful fighting Baloo's tummy] Come on! Come on, Baloo!
Baloo: Now Mowgli, stop it now, now hold still. [grabs Mowgli's hands] I wa-- I wanna tell you something, now listen to me!
Mowgli: What's the matter, old papa bear?
Baloo: [still sadly] Look Mowgli, I've been trying to tell you, I've been trying all morning to tell you, I'VE GOT TO TAKE YOU BACK TO THE MAN VILLAGE!
Mowgli: [shocked, alarmed] THE MAN VILLAGE?!
Baloo: Now look, kid, I can explain...
Mowgli: [backs up slowly] But-But you said we were partners.
Baloo: Now believe me, kid, I--
Mowgli: You're just like... like old Bagheera!
Baloo: [angrily] Now, just a minute, that's going too far! [Mowgli runs in the opposite direction, and Baloo tries to calls him] Hey, Mowgli, where you going? Wait a minute! Stop! Wait! Wait! Listen ol' Baloo! Mowgli? Mowgli? Mowgli! [Mowgli flees away, Baloo feeling hurt and betrayed by him] Mowgli? Mowgli?!
Bagheera: [runs up to Baloo after hearing him calling for Mowgli] Now, what's happened?
Baloo: Well, you're, you're-- You're not gonna believe me, Bagheera, but look-- Now, I used the same words you did, and he ran out on me!
Bagheera: [stammering] W-Well, don't just stand there! Let's separate! W-We've got to find him! [runs off in the opposite direction]
Baloo: Oh, if anything happens to that little guy, I'll never forgive myself. I gotta find him. Mowgli! Mowgli!

[Col. Hathi and the Jungle Patrol are marching]
Bagheera: Stop! Wait a minute. [bellows] HA-A-A-A-A-A-A-LT!
[The Jungle Patrol abruptly stops]
Col. Hathi: Oh! Oh! Who said, "Halt!"? I give the commands around here. Now, speak up. Who was it?
Bagheera: Oh, it was me, Colonel.
Col. Hathi: What do you mean, sir? Taking over my command? Highly irregular, you know.
Bagheera: Oh, Colonel, I'm sorry, but, but I need your help.
[Shere Khan is seen spying on them]
Col. Hathi: Oh, absolutely impossible! We're on a cross-country march!
Bagheera: But it's an emergency, Colonel. The Man-Cub must be found.
Col. Hathi: Man-Cub? What Man-Cub?
Shere Khan: [cocks his left ear while eavesdropping their private chat from afar] How interesting.
Bagheera: The one who I was taking to the Man Village.
Col. Hathi: Good. That's where he belongs. Now, sir, if you don't mind, we'd like to get on with the march.
Bagheera: No, no-no, you-you don't understand, Hathi. He is lost. He ran away.
Shere Khan: How delightful.
Col. Hathi: Well, it serves the whippersnapper right.
Bagheera: But, but Shere Khan, the Tiger, he's sure to pick up the Man-Cub's trail.
[Shere Khan nods his head, agreeing with Bagheera.]
Col. Hathi: [laughs] Shere Khan. Nonsense, old boy. Shere Khan isn't within miles from here. [Shere Khan shakes his head in disagreement, and chuckles evilly, as if saying "That's what you think."] Oh, sorry, Bagheera. Fortunes of war, and all that sort of thing, you know.
Winifred: [angrily storms towards Hathi, with Hathi Jr. following her] This has gone far enough. Far enough! [to Hathi] Now, just a minute, you pompous old windbag!
Col. Hathi: Winifred! What are you doing out of ranks?
Winifred: Never mind. [indicating Hathi Jr.] How would you like to have our boy lost and alone in the jungle?
Col. Hathi: Our son? Alone? But, Winifred, old girl, that's an entirely different matter!
Winifred: Huh!
Col. Hathi: Different, entirely.
Winifred: That little boy is no different than our own son. Now, you help find him, or I'm taking over command!
Col. Hathi: WHAT?! A female leading my herd?! Utterly preposterous!
Hathi Jr.: Pop, the Man-Cub and I are friends. He'll get hurt if we don't find him. Please, Pop, sir? Please?
Col. Hathi: [smiles] Now, don't you worry, Son. Your father had a plan in mind all the time.
Winifred: [scoffs; sarcastically] Sure you did.
Col. Hathi: [gets shocked at Winifred's sarcasm, but regains composure, and clears throat] Troopers! Company, left face! [the elephants turn around in a military fashion] Volunteers for a special mission will step one pace forward. [the elephants step back; Elephant #3 is still chewing, but stops and backs up; Hathi sees the elephants and chuckles] That's what I like to see; Devotion to duty. Now, you volunteers will find the lost Man-Cub.
Bagheera: Oh, thank you, Colonel. Now, there's no time to lose.
Col. Hathi: Yes, yes. [to Bulger] Uh, Bugler, when the Man-Cub is sighted, you will sound your trumpet three times.
Bugler Elephant: Yes, sir. [trumpets loudly, but Hathi abruptly stops him.]
Col. Hathi: Shh! Not now, soldier.
Bugler Elephant: [nasally] Sorry, sir.
Col. Hathi: [to Lieutenant] Lieutenant, our strategy shall be the element of surprise. [whispers] You will take one squad, and cover the right flank.
Lieutenant: [whispers] Yes, sir.
Col. Hathi: [whispers] And I shall take the other squad on the left flank. Very well. [bellows] COMPANY-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y... [bellow echoes] FORWARD, MARCH!
Shere Khan: Element of surprise? Ho. I say. [chortles] And now, for my rendezvous with the little lost Man-Cub.

[Kaa has Mowgli wrapped in his coils as Shere Khan pulls Kaa’s tail like ringing a doorbell]
Kaa: Oh, now what? I'll be right down. [gets down from the tree almost completely] Yes? Yes? Who is it?
Shere Khan: It's me, Shere Khan. Uh, I'd like a word with you, if you don't mind.
Kaa: Shere Khan. What a surprise.
Shere Khan: Yes, isn't it? I just dropped by. Uh, forgive me if I've interrupted anything.
Kaa: Oh, no, no. Nothing at all.
Shere Khan: [his claws pop out from his paw, and he drums on the ground with them] I thought perhaps that you were entertaining someone up there in your coils.
Kaa: Coils? Someone? Oh, no. I was just curling up for my siesta.
Shere Khan: But you were singing to someone. [grabs hold of Kaa's throat] Who is it, Kaa?
Kaa: [choking like mad] Uh, who? [coughs] Oh, no. No. I was just...singing to myself.
Shere Khan: Indeed.
Kaa: Yes. You see, I have... [gulps] ...trouble with my sssinuses.
Shere Khan: What a pity. [releases Kaa's neck and gently pins him to the ground]
Kaa: Oh, you have no idea. It's simply terrible. I can't eat. I can't sssleep. So, I sssing myself to sleep. You know, self-hypnosis? [smiles deviously, brings his head close to Shere Khan's face] Let me show you how it works. [He uses his hypnosis technique with his eyes] ♪ Tru-u-u-ust in me-- ♪
[Shere Khan pushes Kaa away and pins his head to the ground, unaffected]
Shere Khan: Oh, no, I can't be bothered with that. I have no time for that sort of nonsense.
Kaa: SS-S-Some other time? Perhaps?
Shere Khan: Perhaps. But at the moment, I'm searching for a Man-Cub.
Kaa: Man-Cub? What Man-Cub?
Shere Khan: The one who's lost. Now, where do you suppose he could be?
Kaa: Search me. [He closes his mouth for telling Shere Khan to search Mowgli on his tentacles]
Shere Khan: That's an excellent idea. [chuckles] I'm sure that you wouldn't mind showing me your coils, would you, Kaa?
Kaa: Certainly not. [lowers his tail] Nothing here...and nothing in here. [his tail pointing to his mouth open, and Shere Khan hears Mowgli snoring. Alarmed, he starts snorting and coughs.] My sinuses.
Shere Khan: Hmm. Indeed. And now, how about the middle?
Kaa: The middle? Oh, the middle. [lowering the middle leaving Mowgli on the tree trunk spinning around and showing Shere Khan the middle of his coils and then getting tickled] Absolutely nothing in the middle.
Shere Khan: Hmm. Really? Well, if you do just happen to see the Man-Cub, you will inform me first. Understand? [scratching Kaa's neck gently]
Kaa: [gulps] I get the point. [spinning himself into a bow with his head on top] Cross my heart, hope to die.
Shere Khan: Good show. And now, I must continue my search for the helpless little lad. [leaves]
Kaa: Ooh, who does he think he's fooling? "The helpless little lad." Ooooh, he gives me the sh-sh-sh-shivers. [Kaa's shivering unintentionally wakes up Mowgli] Picking on that poor, little, helpless boy. [sighs, but smiles] Oh, yes. Poor, little, helpless boy. [Mowgli pushes the rest of Kaa off the branches and sends him falling comically to the ground yet again, in the same exact manner] Ooh!
Mowgli: [climbs down the tree] You told me a lie, Kaa! You said that I could trust you!
Kaa: It's like you said; you can't trust anyone! [tries to strike Mowgli, only to again be caught in by a knot in his tail; when he pulls it out, his body comes back like an accordion] If I never see that s-ss-skinny little shrimp again, it will be too s-s-s-soon. Ooh, my s-s-s-sacroiliac.

Buzzy: [yawns] Hey, Flaps. What we gonna do?
Flaps: I don't know. What'cha wanna do?
Ziggy: I've got it! Let's flap over to the east side of the jungle. They've always got a bit of action, a bit of a swingin' scene, all right!
Buzzy: Aw, come off it. Things are right dead all over.
Ziggy: You mean that you wish they were! [They all laugh, except for Dizzy]
Dizzy: Very funny.
Buzzy: OK. So, what we gonna do?
Flaps: I don’t know. What'cha wanna do?
Buzzy: Look, Flaps. First I say, "What we gonna do?" Then you say, "I don't know. What'cha wanna do?" Then I say, "What we gonna do?" Then you say, "What'cha wanna do?" "What we gonna do? What you want..." Let's do something!
Flaps: Okay. What'cha wanna do?
Buzzy: [annoyed] Oh, blimey. There you go again, the same notes again!
Ziggy: I've got it! This time, I've really got it!
Buzzy: So, you got it. So, what we gonna do?
Dizzy: [spots Mowgli approaching] Hold it, lads. Look. Look what's coming our way.
Flaps: Hey, what in the world is that?
Ziggy: What a crazy-looking bunch of bones.
Dizzy: Yeah, and they're all walking about by themselves. [they all laugh]
Buzzy: So, what are we gonna do?
Flaps: I don't know. Hey, now, don't start that again!
Ziggy: [Pushing the others off the tree] C'mon, lads. C'mon. Let's have some fun with this little fella. This Little Bloke, eh?

Shere Khan: [applauds] Bravo. Bravo. An extraordinary performance. [evilly] And thank you for detaining my victim.
Flaps: Uh, d-don't mention it... [gulps] ...Your Highness.
Shere Khan: [chuckles] Boo!
[the Vultures get scared of Shere Khan]
Dizzy: Let's get out of here!
Buzzy: Give me room! Gangway! [to Mowgli] Run, friend! Run!
Mowgli: Run? Why should I run?
Shere Khan: Why should you run? Could it be possible that you don't know who I am?
Mowgli: I know you, all right. You're Shere Khan.
Shere Khan: Precisely. [pops his claws out of his right paw] Then you should also know that everyone runs from Shere Khan. [pokes Mowgli's chin with his right paw]
Mowgli: [angrily pushes Shere Khan's paw away] You don't scare me! I won't run from anyone!
Shere Khan: Ah, you have spirit for one so small. And such spirit is deserving of a sporting chance. Now, I'm going to close my eyes, and count to 10. It makes the chase more interesting...for me. 1... [Mowgli looks for something to defend himself with as Shere Khan continues counting]...2... [Mowgli spots something and goes over to retrieve it.] ...3... [As Mowgli picks up a stick, Shere Khan begins to suspect something.] ...4... [Mowgli prepares to defend himself] You're trying my patience. [counts faster just as Baloo arrives] 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10!
[Shere Khan leaps at Mowgli with a loud roar, Mowgli loses all of his nerve at the sight of this fearsome creature; Shere Khan almost catches Mowgli until Baloo grabs him by the tail]
Baloo: Run, Mowgli, run!
Shere Khan: Let go, you big oaf!
Baloo: [scared] Ooh! Take it easy! Take it-- Ooh! H-Hold it! Hold it! Whoa! Slow down! [Shere Khan tries to bite him] Whoa! Yeow! Whoa! Slow! Easy, now! Ooh! Whoa, whoa, easy!
Buzzy: He's got a tiger by the tail, he has.
Dizzy: And he'd better hang on, too.
[Baloo hides beside a tree, but Shere Khan bites him in the butt]
Baloo: [screams in agony] YEOW!!!!
Mowgli: [hits Shere Khan with a thick twig in retaliation] Take that, you big bully!
Flaps: Let 'im have it again, kid! Hit 'im again, kid! Go on!
Mowgli: [starts to flee as Shere Khan chases him, but Baloo grabs Shere Khan's tail] Baloo, help me!
Baloo: [he hangs over a tree branch, shocked, and turns around to Shere Khan chase at Mowgli] OOHH! [stammers] Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh! [as he runs, Shere Khan roars, and Baloo gets a bumpy slide on the ground] Somebody do something with that kid.
Ziggy: Come on, lads!

[Flaps and Ziggy have just saved Mowgli]
Buzzy: He's safe now! [laughs] You can let go, Baloo.
Baloo: Are you kiddin'? There's teeth on the other end.

Shere Khan: I’ll kill you for this.
Mowgli: [Flaps and Buzzy are holding him] Let go! Baloo needs help!
[suddenly, a thunderclap is heard and lightning strikes a tree, splitting it in half and catches fire]
Buzzy: Fire! That's the only thing that Ol' Stripes is afraid of.
Flaps: You get the fire, we'll do the rest.

Buzzy, Dizzy, Flaps & Ziggy: CHARGE!!
[Buzzy, Dizzy, Flaps & Ziggy hover Shere Khan and laugh]
Shere Khan: Stay out of this, you mangy fools!
Buzzy: Yeah, yeah! [ducks during Shere Khan's attack] Missed me a mile, he did! [vultures laughs, Mowgli try to get the fire branch, Flaps pulls a Shere Khan's whiskers] Yeah, pull his blinkin' whiskers!
Flaps: He's a bloomin' pussycat is!
[Mowgli takes a burning branch and ties it to Shere Khan's tail]
Dizzy: Look behind you, chum.
[Shere Khan gasps, he panic runs away, getting burnt by the fire on every step, and flees away]
Buzzy: Well, that was the last of him.
[they vultures laughs]
Ziggy: Old stripes took off like a flaming comet, idiot.
Buzzy: Well, come on, let's go congratulate our friend.
Dizzy: [approaching] Hold it, Fellas. Now's not the time for it. Look.
[Mowgli comes to Baloo, who is lying without signs of life]
Mowgli: Baloo? Baloo, get up. Oh please, get up. Oh.

[Mowgli and Bagheera think Baloo has died at the paws of Shere Khan]
Bagheera: Mowgli, try to understand.
Mowgli: Bagheera, what's the matter with him?
Bagheera: You've got to be brave, like Baloo was.
Mowgli: Y-You don't mean--? Oh, no. Baloo.
Bagheera: Now, now. I know how you feel. But you must remember, Mowgli: [quotes John 15:13 from the Holy Bible] "Greater love hath no one than he who lays down his life for his friend." [As the panther speaks, Baloo opens his eyes, alive and well.] When great deeds are remembered in this jungle, one name will stand above all others; our friend Baloo the Bear.
Baloo: [sniffling] He's crackin’ me up.
Bagheera: The memory of Baloo's sacrifice and bravery will forever be engraved on our saddened hearts.
Baloo: Beautiful.
Bagheera: This spot where Baloo fell will always be a hallowed place in the jungle, for there lies one of nature's noblest creatures.
Baloo: [still sniffling] I wish that my mother could've heard this.
Bagheera: It's best we leave now. Come along, Man-Cub.
Baloo: Hey, don't stop now, Baggy, you're doin' great! There's more! Lots more!
Bagheera: [sees Baloo still alive and is furious] WHY, YOU.... BIG.... FRAUD!!!! You.... You-You-You four-flusher! I-I am fed up!
Mowgli: [hugs Baloo] Baloo! You're all right!
Baloo: Who, me? Sure, I am! Never felt... better.
[Vultures laugh happily]
Mowgli: [laughs in relief] You sure had us worried.
Baloo: Aw, I was just takin' 5. Y'know, like, playin' it cool. Heh! Yeah, but he was too easy.
Mowgli: Good ol' Papa Bear!
Dizzy: It's going to be a bit dull without that Little Bloke, isn't it?
Buzzie: Yeah. So, what are we gonna do?
Flaps: I don't know. Hey, now don't start that again!

[Dissolve to Baloo, Mowgli and Bagheera walking]
Baloo: Hey Baggy, too bad you missed the action. You should have seen how I made a sucker out ol' stripes with that left up in his face. [fists Bagheera's face] Boom, boom, I was giving him wham! [to Mowgli] You know some, we're good sparring partners.
Mowgli: [laugh happily] You better believe it!
Baloo: Yes, sir! Nothing that nobody is ever gonna come between us again.

[Mowgli sees the girl from the Man Village for the first time]
Mowgli: Look. What's that?
Bagheera: Oh, it's the Man Village.
Mowgli: No, no. I mean that.
Baloo: Forget about those. They ain't nothin’ but trouble.
Mowgli: Just a minute. I've never seen one before.
Baloo: So you've seen one. So let's go.
Mowgli: I'll be right back. I want a better look.
Baloo: Mowgli, wait a minute!
Bagheera: Ah, Baloo. Let him have a better look.

[Shanti drops her pot of water purposefully, pretending to do it by accident, and it rolls towards Mowgli]
Baloo: She did that on purpose!
Bagheera: [smiling] Obviously.

Baloo: [concerned] Mowgli. Come back. Come back!
Bagheera: [encouragingly] Go on. Go on.

[Last lines; After Mowgli, falling in love with Shanti, enters the Man Village for the first time]
Baloo: [stunned] He's hooked.
Bagheera: [smiles] Ah, it was inevitable, Baloo. The boy couldn't help himself. It was bound to happen. Mowgli is where he belongs now.
Baloo: [resigned] Yeah. I guess you're right. [smiles] But I still think that he'd have made one swell bear. [inhales] Well, c'mon, Baggy, buddy. Let's get back to where we belong, and get with the beat. [singing] ♪ Look for the Bare Necessities, the simple Bare Necessities. ♪
Bagheera: [singing] ♪ Forget about your worries and your strife. ♪
Both: [singing] ♪ I mean the Bare Necessities! Ol' Mother Nature's recipes, that bring the Bare Necessities of life. ♪
