Colonel Hathi: [Seeing Mowgli for the first time] Well, a new recruit, eh? Ha ha... uh say, what happened to your trunk?
Mowgli: [Much annoyed] Hey, stop that!
Colonel Hathi: [Surprised beyond belief] A mancub! This is treason!
Colonel Hathi: Sabotage! I'll have no mancub in my jungle!
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

You better believe it!

Baloo

[singing] Father's hunting in the forest / Mother's cooking in the home / I must go to fetch the water / 'Til the day that I'm grown /'Til I'm grown, 'til I'm grown / I must go to fetch the water/ 'Til the day that I'm grown / Then I will have a handsome husband / And a daughter of my own / And I'll send her to fetch the water / I'll be cooking in the home / Then I'll send her to fetch the water / I'll be cooking in the home

The Girl

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.

Bagheera: 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.
Bagheera: It was a sound like one never heard before in this part of the jungle. It was a man cub! Had I known how deeply I was to be involved, I would've obeyed my first impulse and walked away.

Mowgli: Hello. What are you doing?
Junior: Shh. Drillin'.
Mowgli: Can I do it, too?
Junior: Sure, just do what I do. But don't talk in ranks. It's against regulations.

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.

King Louie: Ha-ha, so you're the mancub? Crazy.
Mowgli: I'm not as crazy as you are, put me down.

Ha-Ha! Man that's what I call a swinging party.

Baloo

Oh no! It's Baloo, that shiftless, two bit, jungle bum.

Bagheera

Baloo: What do they call you?
Bagheera: His name is Mowgli, and I'm taking him back to the man village.
Baloo: Man village? They'll ruin him. They'll make a man out of him.

Bagheera: Now, while you create a disturbance, I'll rescue Mowgli. Got that?
Baloo: [dancing away] I'm gone, man. Solid gone.
Bagheera: Not yet, Baloo!
