The Jungle Book (1967) Poster

J. Pat O'Malley: Col. Hathi the Elephant, Buzzie


  • Buzzie : Hey, Flaps, what we gonna do?

    Flaps : I don't know. What you 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.

    Buzzie : Aw, come off it. Things are right dead all over.

    Ziggy : You mean you wish they were.

    [all laugh] 

    Dizzy : [serious]  Very funny.

  • 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!

    [to Mowgli] 

    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] 

  • Buzzie : [to Flaps]  Okay, so what we gonna do?

    Flaps : I don't know, what you wanna do?

    Buzzie : Look, Flaps, first I say, "What we gonna do?" Then you say, "I don't know, what you wanna do?" Then I say, "What we gonna do?" You say, "What you wanna do?" "What we gonna do?" "What you want..." Let's do SOMETHING!

    Flaps : Okay. What you wanna do?

    Buzzie : Oh, blimey! There you go again. The same notes again!

    Ziggy : I've got it! This time, I've really got it!

    Buzzie : Now you've got it. So what we gonna do?

  • Colonel Hathi : Esprit de corps! That's the way I earned my commission in the Majarajah's Fifth Pachyderm Brigade. Back in '88 it was. Or... or was it?

    Winifred : Here it comes. The Victoria Cross bit again.

    Colonel Hathi : It was then I received the Victoria Cross for bravery above and beyond the call of duty. Ha ha! Those were the days. Discipline! Discipline was the thing! Builds character, and all that sort of thing, you know.

  • Buzzie : So what we gonna do?

    Flaps : I don't know. Hey, now don't start *that* again!

  • Colonel Hathi : [as Bagheera tries to appeal to him about searching for Mowgli]  Sorry, Bagheera, fortunes of war and all that sort of thing, you know.

    Winifred : [walking up to Hathi]  This has gone far enough! Far enough!

    [stands in Hathi's way] 

    Winifred : Now just a minute, you pompous old windbag!

    Colonel Hathi : Winifred, what are you doing out of ranks?

    Winifred : Never mind! How would you like to have our boy lost and alone in the jungle?

    Colonel Hathi : Our son?

    [close to a mumble] 

    Colonel Hathi : Alone?

    [out loud] 

    Colonel Hathi : But Winifred, old girl, that's an entirely different matter!

    Winifred : Hmph!

    Colonel Hathi : [proudly]  Different entirely.

    Winifred : That little boy is no different than our own son. Now you help find him or I'm taking over command!

    Colonel Hathi : What? A female leading my herd? Utterly preposterous!

    Junior : Pop, the man cub and I are friends. He'll get hurt if we don't find him. Please, Pop, sir, please?

    Colonel Hathi : [softening up a tinge]  Now don't you worry, son. Your father had a plan in mind all the time.

    Winifred : [smirks smugly] 


    Winifred : Sure, you did.

  • Colonel Hathi : [Seeing Mowgli for the first time]  Well, a new recruit, eh? Ha ha... uh say, what happened to your trunk?

    [Begins prodding Mowgli's nose with his twig] 

    Mowgli : [Much annoyed]  Hey, stop that!

    Colonel Hathi : [Surprised beyond belief]  A mancub! This is treason!

    [Picks Mowgli up with his trunk] 

    Colonel Hathi : Sabotage! I'll have no mancub in my jungle!

    [Puts him down] 

    Mowgli : It's not your jungle!

    Bagheera : [Running onto the scene]  Hold it! Hold it! I can explain, Hathi.

    Colonel Hathi : Colonel Hathi, if you please sir.

    Bagheera : Oh yes. Colonel Hathi. The mancub is with me. I'm taking him to the man village.

    Colonel Hathi : To stay?

    Bagheera : You have the word of Bagheera.

    Colonel Hathi : Good. And remember: an elephant never forgets!

    [Mowgli folds his arms in disgust] 

  • [Baloo is holding on to Shear Khan's tail as he's running] 

    Buzzie : [Flaps and Dizzy have just saved Mowgli]  He's safe now. You can let go, Baloo.

    Baloo : Are you kidding? There's teeth in the other end!

  • Winifred : Dear, haven't you forgotten something?

    Colonel Hathi : Nonsense, Winifred, old girl. An elephant never forgets.

    Winifred : Well, you just forgot our *son*!

  • Buzzie : [Baloo's being dragged holding on to Shere Khan's tail]  You can let go now, Baloo.

    Baloo : Are you kidding? There's teeth at the other end!

  • Flaps : [feeling Mowgli's legs]  Blimey! He's got legs like a stork, he has.

    Buzzie : Like a stork, yeah. But he ain't got no feathers, he ain't.
