The Jungle Book (1967)
Bruce Reitherman: Mowgli the Man Cub
Mowgli : Oh, Baloo, I wanna stay with you.
Baloo : Certainly, you do.
Bagheera : Oh? And just how do you think he will survive?
Baloo : "How do you think he will... " What do you mean how do you think he... He's with me, ain't he? And I'll learn him all I know.
Bagheera : Oh? That shouldn't take too long.
Mowgli : [to the unconscious Baloo] Baloo, get up. Oh, please get up.
Bagheera : Mowgli, try to understand.
Mowgli : Bagheera, what's the matter with him?
Bagheera : You've got to be brave, like Baloo was.
Mowgli : You... you don't mean... Oh, no. Baloo.
Bagheera : Now, now. I know how you feel. But you must remember, Mowgli. Greater love hath no one than he who lays down his life for his friend.
[At this point, Baloo starts waking up, unbeknownst to Bagheera and Mowgli]
Bagheera : Whenever great deeds are remembered in this jungle, one name will stand above all others: our friend, Baloo the bear.
[Baloo is so moved by this that he starts crying]
Baloo : [sniffing] He's cracking 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 : I wish my mother could have heard this.
Bagheera : It's best we leave now. Come along, man-cub.
Baloo : [suddenly wide awake] Hey, don't stop now, Baggy, you're doing great! There's more, lots more!
Bagheera : [shocked and angry] Why, you big fraud! You-you-you four-flusher! I-I'm fed up!...
Mowgli : [ecstatic] Baloo! You're all right!
Baloo : Who, me? Sure I am. Never felt better.
Baloo : [singing] Now when you pick a pawpaw / Or a prickly pear / And you prick a raw paw / Well, next time, beware! / Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw / When you pick a pear try to use the claw / But you don't need to use the claw / When you pick a pear of the big pawpaw / Have I given you a clue?
Mowgli : Golly, thanks, Baloo.
Bagheera : Pawpaw, ha! Of all the silly gibberish.
Baloo : [tugging on Bagheera's tail] C'mon, Baggy, get with the beat.
Mowgli : Gee, cousin Louie, you're doing real good.
King Louie : Now here's your part of the deal, cuz. Lay the secret on me of Man's Red Fire.
Mowgli : But I don't know how to make fire.
King Louie : [singing] Now don't try to kid me, Man Cub / I made a deal with you / What I desire is Man's Red Fire / To make my dream come true / Now give me the secret, Man Cub / Come on, clue me what to do / Give me the power of Man's Red Flower / So I can be like you.
Mowgli : Where we goin', Baloo?
Baloo : Well, uh, it's uh... um... well, it's sorta new and, uh...
Mowgli : Oh, I don't care, as long as I'm with you.
Baloo : Mowgli, look, buddy, uh, there's somethin' I gotta tell ya.
Mowgli : Tell me what, Baloo?
Baloo : Oh, gee whiz. Now, how did ol' Baggy put it? Uh, uh, Mowgli... Ha! You wouldn't marry a panther, would you?
Mowgli : Gee, I don't even know what you're talking about.
Baloo : Mowgli, don't you realize that you're a human?
Mowgli : I'm not any more, Baloo. I'm a bear like you.
Baloo : Little buddy, look. Listen to me.
Mowgli : [play fighting] Come on, Baloo.
Baloo : Mowgli, stop it now. Hold still. I wanna tell you something. Now listen to me.
Mowgli : What's the matter, ol' papa bear?
Baloo : Look, Mowgli, I've been trying to tell ya, I've been trying all morning to tell ya. I've got to take you back to the man-village!
Mowgli : The man-village?
Baloo : Now look, kid, I can explain...
Mowgli : But-but you said we were partners.
Baloo : Now believe me, kid, I...
Mowgli : You're just like... like old Bagheera!
Baloo : Now just a minute! That's going too far!
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]
Kaa : [hypnotizing Mowgli and coiling him up] Please, go to sleep, sleep tight little man-cub, rest in peace... sleep... sleep...
Mowgli : Ba... Bagheera?
Bagheera : Now, it's no use arguing anymore. No more talk until morning.
Kaa : [laughs] He won't be here in the morning.
[starts to eat Mowgli]
Bagheera : [almost asleep, but soon notices Kaa about to devour Mowgli] Huh? Oh yes, he will, I... KAA! HOLD IT, KAA!
[smacks Kaa in the face]
Baloo : Now, look. It's like this, little britches. All you gotta do is...
Baloo : [singing] Look for the bare necessities / The simple bare necessities / Forget about your worries and your strife / I mean the bare necessities / Are Mother Nature's recipies / That bring the bare necessities of life / Wherever I wander / Wherever I roam / I couldn't be fonder / Of my big home / The bees are buzzin' in the tree / To make some honey just for me / When you look under the rocks and plants / And take a glance at the fancy ants / Then maybe try a few...
Mowgli : You eat ants?
Baloo : You better believe it. And you're gonna *love* the way they tickle.
Mowgli : [sees the girl] Look. What's that?
Bagheera : Oh, it's the man-village.
Mowgli : No, no. I mean that.
Baloo : Forget about those, they ain't nothing 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 : Oh, Baloo. Let him have a better look.
Bagheera : 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.
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]
Mowgli : [to King Louie] What do you want me for?
King Louie : Word has grabbed my royal ear... Have a banana.
[he pops a banana neatly out of its skin and into Mowgli's mouth]
King Louie : ... that you want to stay in the jungle.
Mowgli : [his mouth full of banana] Stay in the jungle? I sure do.
King Louie : Good, and ol' King Louie...
King Louie : Ba-ba-do-bay-boo-boo-doo-doo...
King Louie : ... that's me, can fix it for you.
[he takes two bananas]
King Louie : Have two bananas.
[like the first one, he pops these two out of their skins and into Mowgli's mouth]
King Louie : Have we got a deal?
Mowgli : [his mouth full of banana] Yes, sir, I'll do...
[he swallows them]
Mowgli : I'll do anything to stay in the jungle.
King Louie : Well, then, I'll lay it on the line for you.
[he starts singing "I Wanna Be Like You"]
Bagheera : [to Baloo while Mowgli sleeps after they save him from King Louie] Mowgli seems to have man's ability to get into trouble, and your influence hasn't been exactly...
Baloo : Shh!
Baloo : Keep it down! You're gonna wake little buddy. He's had a big day. It was a sockeroo. You know, it ain't easy learning to be like me.
Bagheera : [scoffs] A disgraceful performance! Associating with those undesirable scatterbrain apes? I hope Mowgli learned something from that experience.
Mowgli : [in his sleep] Scooby-dooby, dooby-doo...
Baloo : [laughs] That's my boy.
Bagheera : Oh, nonsense.
Baloo : [scatting] Well, it's a doo-bah-dee-doo, yes, it's a doo-bah-dee-doo, I mean a doo-bee, doo-bee, doo-bee, doo-bee, doo-bee-dee-doo. And with...
Baloo : Well, now. Ha ha! What have we here?
Baloo : Hmmm. Say, what a funny little bit of a...
Mowgli : [slaps Baloo in the nose] Go away!
Baloo : Oh, boy! I've seen everything in these woods. Ooh, what have I run on? What a pretty thing this is.
Mowgli : Leave me alone.
Baloo : Well, now. That's pretty big talk, little britches.
Mowgli : I'm big enough.
[starts slugging Baloo]
Baloo : Tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk. Pitiful. Hey, kid. You need help, and ol' Baloo's gonna learn ya to fight like a bear.
Mowgli : Bagheera, where are we going?
Bagheera : You're going back to the man-village right now.
Mowgli : I'm not going.
Bagheera : Oh, yes, you are.
Mowgli : [grabbing a hold of a small tree by a river] I'm staying right here.
Bagheera : You're going if I have to drag you every step of the way.
[He grabs a hold of Mowgli's loincloth around his middle in his teeth and tries to tug him off to get him to let go of the tree]
Bagheera : [through his teeth] Let go, you!
Mowgli : *You* let go of *me*!
[as Bagheera pulls harder, he accidentally lets go and falls into the river. As he climbs out of the river, he hits head against a fallen log]
Bagheera : [furious] Oh, that does it! I've had it, man-cub! From now on, you're on your own... ALONE!
Mowgli : Don't worry about me.
