The Jungle Book (1967)
George Sanders: Shere Khan the Tiger
[Kaa tries to hypnotize Shere Khan just as he did to Mowgli]
Kaa : [singing] Trust in me...
[Shere Khan bats him away with his free paw]
Shere Khan : I can't be bothered with that, I have no time for that nonsense.
Kaa : Ssssssssome other time, perhaps?
Shere Khan : [Scratches Kaa's nostril with his claw] 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?
[Kaa covers his mouth to stifle his gasp]
Shere Khan : That's an excellent idea. I'm sure you wouldn't mind showing me your coils, would you, Kaa?
Kaa : Ccccccertainly not.
[Shows his tail]
Kaa : Nothing here, and nothing in here.
[Points into his mouth]
Kaa : [Mowgli snores up in the treetop and Shere Khan's ears prick up at the sound; Kaa snores noisly]
Kaa : It'ssssssss my ssssinuses.
Shere Khan : Hm.
[looks up at the treetop]
Shere Khan : Indeed. And now, how about the middle?
Kaa : The middle? Oh, the middle.
[Kaa unfurls part of his midsection, twirling Mowgli around in his sleep, and brings it down for Shere Khan to inspect, which he does]
Kaa : [laughs] I-I-I assure you there's nothing in the middle.
Shere Khan : Hmm, barely. Well, if you do so happen to see the man-cub, you will inform me first.
[Scratches Kaa's chin]
Shere Khan : Understand?
Kaa : [gulps] I get the point. Cross my heart, hope to die.
Shere Khan : In good show. And now I must continue my search for the helpless little lad.
[Shere Khan wanders off, Kaa frowns]
Kaa : Oh, who does he think he's fooling. The helpless little lad... woooo he gives me the shhhhhhivers.
[Kaa's shivering wakes up Mowgli]
Kaa : Picking on that poor, little, helpless boy. Oh yes... poor, little, helpless boy.
[Mowgli pushes the rest of Kaa's coils off the branch he is on and sends him falling to the ground]
Shere Khan : Bravo, Bravo. An extraordinary performance. And thank you for detaining my victim.
Flaps : D-don't mention it...
Flaps : ...Your Highness.
Shere Khan : [laughs] Boo!
[Vultures flee up to their tree]
Dizzy : Let's get out of here!
Buzzie : Gimme room, gangway!
Buzzie : Run, friend, run!
Mowgli : Run? Why should I run?
Shere Khan : Why should you run? Is it possible that you don't know who I am?
Mowgli : I know you alright. You're Shere Khan.
Shere Khan : Precisely. And you should know that everyone runs from Shere Khan.
Mowgli : 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 ten. It makes the chase more interesting... for me. One...
[Music gets tenser as Mowgli looks for something to defend himself with as Shere Khan continues counting]
Shere Khan : ...two...
[Mowgli spots something and goes over to retrieve it]
Shere Khan : ...three...
[as Mowgli picks up a stick, Shere Khan begins to suspect something]
Shere Khan : ...four...
[Mowgli prepares to defend himself]
Shere Khan : You're trying my patience. Five, six, seven, eight, nine, TEN!
[Shere Khan leaps at Mowgli with a loud roar, Mowgli loses all of his nerve at the sight of this fearsome creature]
[as Kaa is about to eat Mowgli, Shere Khan pulls on his tail, which makes a doorbell sound]
Kaa : Ooh! Oh, now what? I'll be right down. Yes, yes, who is it?
Shere Khan : It's me. Shere Khan. 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. Now forgive me if I've interrupted anything.
Kaa : Oh no, no, nothing at all.
Shere Khan : [brandishing his claws] 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. Who is it, Kaa?
[Shere Khan grabs Kaa's throat with his paw]
Kaa : Ah, um, oh no, I was just singing, uh, to myself.
Shere Khan : Indeed.
Kaa : Yes... yes, you see I have... trouble with my sinuses.
Shere Khan : What a pity!
Kaa : Oh, you have no idea. It's simply terrible. I can't eat, I can't sleep, so I ssssssing myself to sleep. You know, self-hypnosis. Let me show you how it works.
[Kaa prepares to look in Shere Khan's eyes and try to hypnotize him]
[Shere Khan is calmly stalking a deer just as Colonel Hathi and the other elephants frighten off his would-be prey with their noise]
Elephants : Hut, two, three, four. Hut, two, three, four.
Shere Khan : What beastly luck! Confound that ridiculous Colonel Hathi!
[Shere Khan watches Colonel Hathi and the other elephants look for Mowgli while tearing down a bunch of trees]
Shere Khan : Element of surprise? Ho! I say. And now for my rendez-vous with the lost man-cub.
