The Lion King Quotes (1994)

Simba: All right, it worked.

Nala: We lost him.

Simba: I - am a genius.

Nala: Hey, genius, it was my idea.

Simba: Yeah, but I pulled it off.

Nala: With me.

Simba: Oh, yeah?

[leaps at Nala who flips Simba on his back]

Nala: Pinned ya!

Simba: Hey let me up!

[Nala does so. Simba leaps at Nala again. They tumble down a hill and Nala ends up on top of Simba again]

Nala: Pinned ya again!

Timon: [singing] Luau! / If you're hungry for a hunk of fat and juicy meat / Eat my buddy Pumbaa here, / 'Cause he is a treat / Come on down and dine / On this tasty swine/ All you hafta do is get in line. / Arrrre you achin'...

Pumbaa: Yup, yup, yup.

Timon: Forrrr some bacon?

Pumbaa: Yup, yup, yup.

Timon: He's a big pig.

Pumbaa: Yup, yup.

Timon: You can be a big pig, too. Oy!

[last lines]

Mufasa's ghost: [as Simba gazes into the night sky] Remember...

Mufasa: Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.

Young Simba: But, Dad, don't we eat the antelope?

Mufasa: Yes, Simba, but let me explain. When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connected in the great Circle of Life.

Pumbaa: What'd ya do, kid?

Simba: Something terrible. But I don't wanna talk about it.

Timon: Good. We don't wanna hear about it.

Banzai: The little majordomo bird, hippity-hop, all the way to the birdie boiler.

Zazu: Oh no, not the birdie boiler!

Timon: Look, kid. Bad things happen, and you can't do anything about it. Right?

Simba: Right.

Timon: Wrong! When the world turns its back on you, you turn your back on the world.

Shenzi: [Banzai's stomach growls] Shut up.

Banzai: I can't help it. I'm so hungry... I gotta have a wildebeest.

Shenzi: Stay put.

Banzai: Well... can't I just pick off one of the little sick ones?

Shenzi: NO! Wait for the signal from Scar.

[Scar appears on the horizon]

Shenzi: There he is. Let's go.

Simba: Everything the light touches... But what about that shadowy place?

Mufasa: That's beyond our borders. You must never go there, Simba.

Simba: But I thought a king can do whatever he wants.

Mufasa: There's more to being a king than getting your way all the time.

Simba: There's more?

Mufasa: [laughing] Simba.

Scar: You run along now, and have fun. And remember... it's our little secret.

Pumbaa: [about "Hakuna Matata"] It's our motto.

Young Simba: What's a motto?

Timon: Nothing. What's a motto with you?


[Timon and Zazu are cornered by hyenas]

Timon: Please don't eat me.

Pumbaa: Drop 'em!

Banzai: Hey! Who's the pig?

Pumbaa: Are you talkin' to me?

Timon: Uh-oh, they called him a pig.

Pumbaa: Are you talking to me?

Timon: Ya shouldn't have done that.


Timon: Now they're in for it.


Zazu: Well, as slippery as your mind is, as the King's brother you should've been first in line.

Scar: [Scar threatens to bite, Zazu retreats toward Mufasa] Well, I was first in line, until the little hairball was born.

Mufasa: That hairball is my son. And your future king.

Scar: Oh, I shall have to practice my curtsy.

Rafiki: Asante sana Squash banana, Wiwi nugu Mi mi apana.

Adult Simba: Come on, will you cut it out?

Rafiki: Can't cut it out. It will grow right back. Hehehe.

Adult Simba: Creepy little monkey. Would you stop following me! Who are you?

Rafiki: The question is, who... are you?

Adult Simba: [sighs] I thought I knew, but now I'm not so sure.

Rafiki: Well, I know who you are! Shh. Come here, it's a secret.

[Whispers, then grows louder]

Rafiki: Asante sana Squash banana, Wiwi nugu Mi mi apana!

Adult Simba: Enough already! What's that supposed to mean, anyway?

Rafiki: It means you're a baboon... and I'm not.

Adult Simba: I think you're a little confused.

Rafiki: Wrong! I'm not the one who's confused. You don't even know who you are!

Adult Simba: Oh, and I suppose you know?

Rafiki: Sure do. You're Mufasa's boy!

[Simba turns around to look at him, shocked]

Rafiki: Bye!

Young Nala: Pinned you again.

Timon: What do you want me to do, dress in drag and do the hula?

Young Simba: Hey, Uncle Scar, guess what?

Scar: I despise guessing games.

Young Simba: I'm gonna be King of Pride Rock.

Scar: Oh, goody.

Young Simba: My dad just showed me the whole kingdom. And I'm gonna rule it all. Heheh.

Scar: Yes. Well, forgive me for not leaping for joy. Bad back, you know.

[flops on his side]

Young Simba: Hey Uncle Scar, when I'm King, what'll that make you?

Scar: A monkey's uncle.

Young Simba: [laughs] You're so weird.

Scar: You have no idea.

Zazu: [singing] Nooooobody knows the trouble I've seen. / Nooooobody knows my sorrow.

Scar: Oh, Zazu, do lighten up. Sing something with a little bounce in it.

Zazu: [singing] It's a small world after all...

Scar: NO! No. Anything but that!

Zazu: [singing] I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts. / Dee-dee-dee-dee, / There they are just standing in a row.

Zazu, Scar: [Scar joins in] Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head...

Zazu: [whispering] Oh, I never had to do this with Mufasa.

Timon: Let me get this straight. You know her. She knows you. But she wants to eat him. And everybody's okay with this?

[jumps up suddenly]

Timon: [yells] Did I miss something?

Zazu: [caged while the battle rages around him] Let me out! Let me out!

Timon: [fleeing the hyenas] Lemme in! Lemme in!

Nala: Have you guys seen Simba?

Timon: I thought he was with you.

Nala: He was but now I can't find him. Where is he?

Rafiki: [chuckles] You won't find him here. The King has returned.

Nala: I don't believe it. He's gone back.

Timon: What?

[looks up and sees Rafiki has disappeared]

Timon: Hey, what's going on here? Who's the monkey?

Nala: Simba's gone back to challenge Scar.

Timon: Who?

Nala: Scar.

Pumbaa: Who's got a scar?

Nala: No, no, no. It's his uncle.

Timon: The monkey's his uncle?

Nala: No! Simba's gone back to challenge his uncle to take his place as king.

Timon, Pumbaa: Ohhh.

Timon: [of the decimated Pride Rock] We're gonna fight your uncle... for this?

Adult Simba: Yes, Timon. This is my home.

Timon: Whoa. Talk about your fixer-upper.

Rafiki: [after guiding Simba to a spot where he says will show him Mufasa] Look down there.

Adult Simba: [looks into a pool of water] That's not my father. That's just my reflection.

Rafiki: No, look harder.

[touches the water, as it ripples Simba's reflection changes to that of his father]

Rafiki: You see? He lives in you.

Mufasa's ghost: [from above] Simba. Adult Simba: Father?

Mufasa's ghost: [apears among the stars] Simba, you have forgotten me.

Adult Simba: No. How could I?

Mufasa's ghost: You have forgotten who you are and so have forgotten me. Look inside yourself, Simba. You are more than what you have become. You must take your place in the Circle of Life.

Adult Simba: [in a huff] She's wrong. I can't go back. What would it prove, anyway? You can't change the past.

[calling to the sky]

Adult Simba: You said you'd always be there for me! But you're not. It's because of me. It's my fault. It's my fault.

Scar: Ahh, so you haven't told them your little secret. Well, Simba, now's your chance to tell them. Tell them who is responsible for Mufasa's death!

Adult Simba: [pause] I am.

Sarabi: [whispering] It's not true. Tell me it's not true.

Adult Simba: It's true.

Scar: You see? He admits it. Murderer!

Adult Simba: No! It was an accident!

Scar: If it weren't for you Mufasa would still be alive. It's your fault he's dead. Do you deny it?

Adult Simba: No.

Scar: Then you're guilty.

Adult Simba: No, I'm not a murderer!

Scar: No, Simba, you're in trouble again. But this time, Daddy isn't here to save you. And now everyone knows why!

Adult Simba: Tell them the truth!

Scar: But Simba truth is in the eye of the behold...

Scar: [Simba chokes him, he whispers] All right. All right. I did it.

Adult Simba: So they can hear you!

Scar: I killed Mufasa!

Scar: Ahh, my friends.

Shenzi: Friends? I thought he said we were the enemy.

Banzai: That's what I heard. Ed?

Ed the Hyena: Oo-oo-ooh, he-he, he-he-he.

[singing] Timon: And if he falls / In love tonight / It can be assumed...

Pumbaa: His carefree days / With us are history.

Timon, Pumbaa: In short, our pal / Is doomed!

Timon: [to Nala, after she accidentally surprises him] Don't ever do that again! Carnivores, ugh!

Young Simba: Dad?

Mufasa: Hmm?

Young Simba: We're pals, right?

Mufasa: Right.

Young Simba: And we'll always be together, right?

Mufasa: Simba, let me tell you something my father told me. Look at the stars. The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars.

Young Simba: Really?

Mufasa: Yes. So whenever you feel alone, just remember that those kings will always be there to guide you. And so will I.

Sarabi: Your son's awake.

Mufasa: Before sunrise, he's your son.

Pumbaa: Hey, Timon, ever wonder what those sparkly dots are up there?

Timon: Pumbaa, I don't wonder; I know.

Pumbaa: Oh. What are they?

Timon: They're fireflies. Fireflies that, uh... got stuck up on that big bluish-black thing.

Pumbaa: Oh, gee. I always thought they were balls of gas burning billions of miles away.

Timon: Pumbaa, with you, everything's gas.

Timon: Gee. He looks blue.

Pumbaa: I'd say brownish-gold.

Timon: No, no, no. I mean he's depressed.

Pumbaa: Oh.

Zazu: Checking in with the morning report.

Mufasa: Fire away.

Zazu: Well the buzz from the bees is that the leopards are in a bit of a spot. And the baboons are going ape over this. Of course, the giraffes are acting like they're above it all... The tick birds are pecking on the elephants. I told the elephants to forget it, but they can't. The cheetahs are hard up, but I always say, cheetahs never prosper...

Mufasa: Look, Simba. Everything the light touches is our kingdom.

Young Simba: Wow.

Mufasa: A king's time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, Simba, the sun will set on my time here, and will rise with you as the new king.

Young Simba: And this'll all be mine?

Mufasa: Everything.

Young Simba: Everything the light touches...

Nala: What's happened to you? You're not the Simba I remember.

Adult Simba: You're right, I'm not. Now are you satisfied?

Nala: No, just disappointed.

Adult Simba: You know you're starting to sound like my father.

Nala: Good. At least one of us does.

Zazu: [leading Simba and Nala to the waterhole] Step lively. The sooner we get to the waterhole, the sooner we can leave.

Young Nala: [whispering to Simba] So where are we really going?

Young Simba: An elephant graveyard.

Young Nala: Wow!

Young Simba: Shhhh! Zazu.

Young Nala: Right. So how are we going to ditch the dodo?

[Simba starts whispering to her]

Zazu: Just look at you two. Little seeds of romance blossoming in the savannah. Your parents will be thrilled, what with your being betrothed and all.

Young Simba: Be-what?

Zazu: Betrothed. Intended. Affianced.

Young Nala: Meaning...?

Zazu: One day, you two are going to be married.

Young Simba: Yuck.

Young Nala: Ewww.

Young Simba: I can't marry her. She's my friend.

Young Nala: Yeah. It'd be so weird.

Zazu: Well, sorry to bust the old bubble, but you two turtledoves have no choice. It's a tradition going back generations.

Young Simba: Well, when I'm king, that'll be the first thing to go.

Zazu: Not so long as I'm around.

Young Simba: Well, in that case, you're fired.

Zazu: Hmmm... Nice try, but only the king can do that.

Young Nala: Well, he's the future king.

Young Simba: Yeah. So you have to do what I tell you.

Zazu: Not yet I don't. And with an attitude like that, I'm afraid you're shaping up to be a pretty pathetic king indeed.

Pumbaa: Your Majesty. I gravel at your feet.

[starts kissing Simba's feet]

Adult Simba: Stop that.

Timon: It's not gravel, it's grovel.

Timon: Why do I always have to save your... Ahhh!

Simba: I know what I have to do. But going back means I'll have to face my past. I've been running from it for so long.

[Rafiki hits Simba on the head with his stick]

Simba: Ow! Jeez, what was that for?

Rafiki: It doesn't matter. It's in the past.


Simba: Yeah, but it still hurts.

Rafiki: Oh yes, the past can hurt. But from the way I see it, you can either run from it, or... learn from it. [swings his stick again at Simba, who ducks out of the way]

Rafiki: Ha. You see? So what are you going to do?

Simba: First, I'm gonna take your stick.

[Simba snatches Rafiki's stick and throws it and Rafiki runs to grab it]

Rafiki: No, no, no, no, not the stick! Hey, where you going?

Simba: I'm going back!

Rafiki: Good! Go on! Get out of here!

[Rafiki begins laughing and screeching loudly]

Simba: You knew my father?

Rafiki: Correction: I know your father.

Zazu: I'm here to announce that King Mufasa's on his way. So you'd better have a good excuse for missing the ceremony this morning.

Scar: [sees the mouse scampering off] Oh, now look, Zazu, you made me lose my lunch.

Zazu: Ha! You'll lose more than that when the King gets through with you. He's as mad as a hippo with a hernia...

Scar: [approaches him menacingly] Oooh... I quiver with fear...

Mufasa: Don't turn your back on me, Scar!

Scar: Oh, no, Mufasa. Perhaps you shouldn't turn your back on me.

Mufasa: [roars, runs to stand before him] Is that a challenge?

Scar: Temper, temper. I wouldn't dream of challenging you.

Zazu: Pity! Why not?

Scar: Well, as far as brains go, I got the lion's share. But, when it comes to brute strength... I'm afraid I'm at the shallow end of the gene pool.

Zazu: [about Scar] There's one in every family sire. Two in mine, actually. And they always manage to ruin special occasions.

Mufasa: What am I going to do with him?

Zazu: He'd make a very handsome throw rug.

Mufasa: [Surprised] Zazu!

Zazu: And just think, Whenever he gets dirty you can take him out and beat him.

Zazu: What's going on?

Mufasa: A pouncing lesson.

Zazu: Oh, very good. Pouncing. Pouncing? Oh, no, Sire, you can't be serious...

[Mufasa signs for "turn around"]

Zazu: This is so humiliating.

Scar: So, your father showed you the whole kingdom, did he?

Young Simba: Everything.

Scar: He didn't show you what's beyond that rise at the northern border?

Young Simba: Well, no. He said I can't go there.

Scar: And he's absolutely right! It's far too dangerous. Only the bravest lions go there.

Young Simba: Well, I'm brave. What's out there?

Scar: No, I'm sorry, Simba, I just can't tell you.

Young Simba: Why not?

Scar: Simba, Simba, I'm only looking out for the well-being of my favorite nephew.

Young Simba: Yeah, right. I'm your only nephew.

Scar: All the more reason for me to be protective. An elephant graveyard is no place for a young prince.

Young Simba: An elephant what? Whoa!

Scar: Oops! Oh, dear, I've said too much! Well, I suppose you'd have found out sooner or later, you being so clever and all. Just promise me you'll never visit that dreadful place!

Young Simba: No problem!

Scar: There's a good lad. You run along now and have fun. And remember... its our little secret.

Young Simba: Isn't it great?

Young Nala: We could get in big trouble.

Young Simba: I know.

Young Nala: [sees an elephant skull] I wonder if its brains are still in there?

Young Simba: Hey, look, Banana Beak is scared.

Zazu: That's Mr. Banana Beak to you, Fuzzy! And right now, we are all in very real danger.

Young Simba: Danger? Hah! I walk on the wild side. I laugh in the face of danger. Ha ha ha ha!

Shenzi: Do you know what we do to kings who step out of their kingdom?

Young Simba: Puh. You can't do anything to me.

Zazu: Uhh... technically, they can. We are on their land.

Young Simba: But Zazu, you told me they're nothing but slobbering mangy stupid poachers.

Zazu: Ix-nay on the oopid-stay...

Banzai: Who're you callin' "oopid-stay?"

Zazu: Oh, my, my, my. Look at the sun. It's time to go!

Young Simba: Hey! Why don't you pick on somebody your own size?

Shenzi: Like... you?

Young Simba: Oops.

Banzai: Oh, Scar, it's just you.

Shenzi: We were afraid it was somebody important.

Banzai: Yeah, you know, like Mufasa.

Scar: I see.

Banzai: Now that's power.

Shenzi: Tell me about it. I just hear that name and I shudder.

Banzai: Mufasa!

Shenzi: Ooooh! Do it again!

Banzai: Mufasa!

Shenzi: Ooooh!

Banzai: Mufasa, Mufasa, Mufasa!

Shenzi: Ooooh!

[breaks into laughter]

Shenzi: And it tingles me!

Scar: I'm surrounded by idiots.

Banzai: Yeah, be prepared! We'll be prepared... for what?

Scar: For the death of the king!

Banzai: Why? Is he sick?

Scar: No, fool, we're going to kill him. And Simba, too.

Shenzi: Hey, great idea! Who needs a king?

Banzai, Shenzi: [singing and dancing around Ed] No king, no king, la la la la la la...

Scar: Idiots! There will be a king!

Banzai: Hey, but you said that...

Scar: I will be king. Stick with me, and you'll never go hungry again!

Banzai, Shenzi: Yeah, all right! Long live the king!

[other hyenas join in]

Banzai, Shenzi: Long live the king! Long live the king!

Scar: Now you wait here. Your father has a marvelous surprise for you.

Young Simba: Oooh. What is it?

Scar: If I told you, it wouldn't be a surprise, now would it?

Young Simba: If you tell me, I'll still act surprised.

Scar: Ho ho ho. You are such a naughty boy!

Young Simba: Come on, Uncle Scar.

Scar: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. This is just for you and your daddy. You know, a sort of... father-son... thing. Well! I'd better go get him.

Young Simba: I'll go with you.

Scar: No!

[regaining composure]

Scar: Heh heh heh. No. Just stay on this rock. You wouldn't want to end up in another mess like you did with the hyenas.

Young Simba: You know about that?

Scar: Simba, Simba, everybody knows about that.

Young Simba: Really?

Scar: Oh, yes. Lucky Daddy was there to save you, eh? Oh, and just between us, you might want to work on that little roar of yours. Hmm?

Young Simba: Oh, okay. Hey, Uncle Scar, will I like this surprise?

Scar: Simba, it's to die for!

Banzai: But we gotta finish the job.

Shenzi: Well, he's as good as dead out there anyway. And if he comes back, we'll kill him.

Banzai: [calling out to Simba] Yeah! You hear that? If you ever come back, we'll kill ya!

Scar: Mufasa's death was a terrible tragedy; but to lose Simba, who had barely begun to live... For me it is a deep personal loss. So it is with a heavy heart that I assume the throne. Yet, out of the ashes of this tragedy, we shall rise to greet the dawning of a new era... in which lion and hyena come together, in a great and glorious future!

Timon: Geez! It's a lion! Run, Pumbaa! Move it!

Pumbaa: Hey, Timon, it's just a little lion. Look at him. He's so cute and all alone! Can we keep him?

Timon: Pumbaa, are you nuts? We're talking about a lion; Lions eat guys like us!

Pumbaa: But he's so little.

Timon: He's gonna get bigger.

Pumbaa: Maybe he'll be on our side.

Timon: A - huh! That's the stupidest thing I ever heard. Maybe he'll b-... Hey, I got it! What if he's on our side? You know, having a lion around might not be such a bad idea.

Timon: Who's the brains in this outfit?

Pumbaa: Uh...

Timon: My point exactly.

Timon: Who's the brains in this outfit?

Pumbaa: Uh...

Timon: My point exactly.

Timon: I saved you.

[Pumbaa snorts]

Timon: Pumbaa helped... a little.

Timon: So where you from?

Young Simba: Who cares? I can't go back.

Timon: Ah, you're an outcast! That's great. So are we.

Timon: I'm telling you, kid: this is the great life. No rules, no responsibilities...

[he reaches into a hole in a log and various insects skitter out, with him holding a blue bug; he points to the rest of the insects]

Timon: Ooh! The little cream-filled kind!

Banzai: Hey, Boss!

Scar: Oh, what is it this time?

Banzai: We've got a bone to pick with you!

Shenzi: I'll handle this. Scar, there's no food, no water...

Banzai: Yeah, it's dinner time, and we ain't got no stinkin' entrees.

Scar: It's the lionesses' job to do the hunting.

Banzai: Yeah, but they won't go hunt.

Scar: Oh... eat Zazu.

Zazu: Oh, you wouldn't want me. I'd be so tough and gamey and... eeww...

Scar: Oh, Zazu, don't be ridiculous. All you need is a little garnish.

Banzai: I thought things were bad under Mufasa.

Scar: What did you say?

Banzai: I said Muf...

[Shenzi elbows him]

Banzai: I said, uh... Que pasa?

Scar: Good. Now get out.

Banzai: Yeah, but... we're still hungry.

Scar: Out!

Simba: Well...

Timon: Yeah?

Simba: Somebody once told me that the great kings of the past are up there, watching over us.

Pumbaa: Really?

Timon: You mean a bunch of royal dead guys are watching us?

Simba: [Nala's mother, Sarafina is giving Nala a bath] Hey, Nala.

Nala: Hi, Simba.

Simba: Come on, I just heard about this great place.

Nala: Simba, I'm kinda in the middle of a bath. Sarabi: And it's time for yours.

[grabs Simba and starts licking him]

Simba: Mom! Mom, you're messing up my mane!

[Sarabi smiles]

Simba: Ok, ok. I'm clean. Can we go now?

Nala: So where are we going? It better not be anyplace dumb.

Simba: No, it's really cool.

Sarabi: So where is this really cool place?

Simba: Oh... around the waterhole.

Nala: The waterhole? What's so great about the waterhole?

Simba: [muttering] I'll show you when we get there.

Nala: Oh... Mom, can I go with Simba?

Sarafina: Hmm, what do you think Sarabi?

Sarabi: Well...

Simba, Young Nala: [with forced grins] Please!

Sarabi: It's alright with me.

Simba: Yeah!

Nala: All right!

Sarabi: As long as Zazu goes with you.

Simba: No, not Zazu!

Timon: Lady, have you got your lions crossed!

Timon: Let me get this straight. You're the king? And you never told us?

Simba: Look, I'm still the same guy.

Timon: But with power!

Nala: Could you guys excuse us for a few minutes?

Timon: Hey, whatever she has to say, she can say in front of us. Right, Simba?

Simba: Mm... Maybe you'd better go.

Timon: It starts. You think you know a guy...

[Timon and Pumbaa leave]

Simba: Timon and Pumbaa. You learn to love 'em.

Simba: Listen, you think you can just show up and tell me how to live my life? You don't even know what I've been through!

Nala: I would if you just tell me!

Simba: Forget it!

Nala: Fine!

Rafiki: What was that?


Rafiki: The weather - Pbbbah! Very peculiar. Don't you think?

Simba: Yeah. Looks like the winds are changing.

Rafiki: Ahhh. Change is good.

Nala: What made you come back?

Simba: I finally got some sense knocked into me. And I've got the bump to prove it.

Scar: Simba, Simba, please. Please have mercy, I beg you.

Simba: You don't deserve to live.

Scar: But, Simba, I... am... family. It's the hyenas who are the real enemy. It was their fault. It was their idea!

Simba: Why should I believe you? Everything you ever told me was a lie.

Scar: What are you going to do? You wouldn't kill your own uncle...?

Simba: No, Scar. I'm not like you.

Scar: Oh, Simba, thank you. You are truly noble. I'll make it up to you, I promise. How can I, ah, prove myself to you? Tell me anything, anything.

Simba: Run. Run away, Scar. And never return.

Scar: Yes. Of course. As you wish,

[Scar's words turn into a snarl]

Scar: your Majesty!

[throws embers in Simba's face]

Simba: Aaah!

Simba: What am I gonna do?

Scar: Run. Run away, and never return.

[Simba leaves and hyenas come out of the mist]

Scar: Kill him.

Timon: This looks like a good spot to rustle up some grub.

Simba: What's that?

Timon: A grub. What's it look like?

[Timon eats the grub]

Simba: Ewwwww, gross.

Timon: Tastes like chicken.

Simba: Man, I'm stuffed.

Pumbaa: Me, too. I ate like a pig.

Simba: Pumbaa, you are a pig.

Pumbaa: It's times like this my buddy Timon here says: you got to put your behind in your past.

Timon: No, no, no. Amateur. Lie down before you hurt yourself. It's "You got to put your past behind you."

Pumbaa: [singing] And I got down-hearted.

Timon: How did you feel?

Pumbaa: Every time that I...

Timon: [clapping Pumbaa's mouth shut] Hey, Pumbaa, not in front of the kids.

Pumbaa: [Faces the camera] Oh. Sorry.

Shenzi: What's the hurry? We'd love you to stick around for dinner.

Banzai: Yeah. We could have whatever's "lion" around.

Shenzi: Oh wait, wait, wait. I got one, I got one. Make mine a "cub" sandwich. Whatcha think?

[all laugh]

Shenzi: [Ed points]

Shenzi: What, Ed?

Banzai: Hey, did we order this dinner to go?

Shenzi: No, why?

Banzai: 'Cause there it goes!

[first lines]

Scar: [Scar catches a mouse] Life's not fair, is it? You see, I... well, I shall never be king. And you... shall never see the light of another day. Hmm-hmm-hmm, adieu.

Zazu: Didn't your mother ever tell you not to play with your food?

Shenzi: Hey. There he goes. There he goes.

Banzai: So go get him.

Shenzi: There ain't no way I'm going in there. What, you want me to come out there looking like you? Cactus-Butt?

Simba: I'm so hungry I could eat a whole zebra.

Timon: Ah-ha, we're fresh out of zebra.

Simba: Any antelope?

Timon: Nah-ah.

Simba: Hippo?

Timon: Nope. Listen kid: if you live with us, you're gonna have to eat like us.

[Watching Simba and Nala]

Timon: I tell ya, Pumbaa, this stinks!

Pumbaa: Oh, sorry.

Timon: Not you, THEM! Him... Her... alone.

Pumbaa: Kid, what's eatin' ya?

Timon: Nothing, he's at the top of the food chain!


Timon: The food chain!

[chuckles nervously]

Mufasa: [above the stampeding wildebeests] Scar! Broth-brother, help me!

Scar: [Scar puts his claws into Mufasa's paws] Long live the King.

[throws him into the stampede]

Mufasa: Aaaaah!

Scar: Nooooooooo!

Simba: Give me one good reason why I shouldn't rip you apart.

Scar: Oh, Simba, you must understand. The pressures of ruling a kingdom...

Simba: Are no longer yours. Step down, Scar.

Scar: [after forcing Simba to the edge of a cliff while a fire burns below] Now this looks familiar. Where have I seen this before? Hm, let me think. Oh, yes, I remember! This is just the way your father looked before he died. And now here's my little secret...


Scar: I killed Mufasa!

Simba: Nooooo!

Simba: [leaps back up and pounces on him] Nooo! Murderer!

Scar: I'm surrounded by idiots.

Scar: [singing] I know that your powers of retention / Are as wet as a warthog's backside / But thick as you are, / Pay attention! / My words are a matter of pride / It's clear from vacant expressions / The lights are not all on upstairs / But we're talking kings and successions / Even you can't be caught unawares!

Timon: [singing] I can see what's happening.

Pumbaa: What?

Timon: [singing] And they don't have a clue.

Pumbaa: Who?

Timon: [singing] They'll fall in love and here's the bottom line: / Our trio's down to two.

Pumbaa: Oh.

Timon: [singing]

[sarcastic, with French accent]

Timon: The sweet caress of twilight.

[normal voice, but still sarcastic]

Timon: There's magic everywhere. / And with all this romantic atmosphere, / Disaster's in the aiiiiiiir!

Timon: Hyenas. I hate hyenas. So what's the plan for getting past those guys?

Simba: Live bait.

Timon: Good idea.

[realizes what he means]

Timon: HEY!

Scar: Stampede, in the gorge. Simba's down there!

Simba: Dad, Dad, come on, you gotta get up. Dad, we gotta go home.

[pulls on Mufasa's ear]

Simba: Help!

[echoes throughout the gorge]

Simba: Somebody,


Simba: anybody...


Simba: [Simba sniffs] help.

Scar: [singing] Of course, / Quid pro quo, / You're expected / To take certain duties on board / The future is littered with prizes / And though I'm the main addressee / The point that I must emphasize is...

[Leaps in front of a hyena]


[[hyena falls into a volcano]

Banzai: [In the hyenas' lair, Banzai slouches with claw marks on his rear] Man, that lousy Mufasa... I won't be able to sit for a week!

Ed: [laughs, but also tries his best to conceal it from time to time] Eh-hee-hee-hee. Heh-heheheheheheheheheh...

Banzai: [Glares at Ed and bares his teeth with impatience] It's not funny, Ed.

Ed: [Cups his paws over his mouth then bursts into hysterical laughter, spitting as his tongue lofts out of his mouth] BA-HA-HA-HAAAA! HA-AH-AH-AH-AH!

[Inhales deeply]

Banzai: Hey, shut up!


Banzai: [Bares his teeth] Grrrrrr...

[as Ed continues to laugh, Banzai barks and pounces on Ed, abruptly ending his laughing. The two commence a brief fight]

Shenzi: [Rolls her eyes and turns to the two yelping and rolling atop each other aggressively] Will you knock it off?

Banzai: [ed appears to be chewing on Banzai's leg; Banzai sits up] Well, he started it!

[It is now obvious that Ed is chewing his own leg repeatedly]

Shenzi: Look at you guys! No wonder we're dangling at the bottom of the food chain!

Banzai: [a string of drool dangles from his chin] Man, I hate dangling...

Shenzi: [Scoffs] Yeah? You know, if it weren't for those lions, we'd be runnin' the joint.

[Ed nods idiotically]

Banzai: Man, I hate lions!

Shenzi: [Grumbles] So pushy...

Banzai: And hairy...

Shenzi: [Smiles] Stinky...

Banzai: [Grins] And man are they...

Banzai, Shenzi: [Elongated use of the 'u'] U-GLY!

[both laugh hysterically]

Scar: [bellowing] Sarabiiiii!

[echoes and reechoes; we soon see Sarabi walking through the pack of hyenas, trying to snap at her; Simba looks on as Sarabi approaches]

Sarabi: Yes, Scar?

Scar: Where is your hunting party? They're not doing their job.

Sarabi: Scar, there is no food. The herds have moved on.

Scar: No! You're just not looking hard enough.

Sarabi: It's over. There is nothing left. We have only one choice. We must leave Pride Rock.

Scar: We're not going anywhere! Sarabi: Then you have sentenced us to death!

Scar: Then so be it!

Sarabi: You can't do that!

Scar: I'm the king! I can do whatever I want!

Sarabi: If you were half the king Mufasa was, you...

Scar: [knocks Sarabi unconscious] I'm ten times the king Mufasa was!

[Lightning flashes and illuminates a snarling Simba]

Scar: Mufasa! No! You're dead!

Sarabi: Mufasa?

Simba: No. It's me.

Sarabi: Simba? But how...?

Simba: It doesn't matter. I'm home.

Scar: Simba? Simba! Well, it sure is a surprise to see you...

[turns to the hyenas]

Scar: ...alive!

Shenzi: Well, well, well, Banzai, what have we got here?

Banzai: Hmm, I don't know Shenzi uh, what do you think Ed?

Ed: Oo ehehe, oh hahahaha

Banzai: Yeah, just what I was thinking, a trio of trespassers.

Zazu: And quite by accident let me assure you...

Shenzi: Whoa, whoa, wait wait. I know you, you're Mufasa's little stooge.

Zazu: I madame, am the king's majordomo.

Banzai: And that would make you...?

Simba: The future King!

Shenzi: Do you know what we do to kings who step out of their kingdom?

Simba: Puh, you can't do anything to me.

Zazu: Uh-uh, technically they can, we are on their land.

Simba: But Zazu, you told me they are nothing but slobbery, mangy stupid poachers.

Zazu: Ix-nay on the upid-stay...

Banzai: Who you callin' upid-stay?

Timon: Repeat after me.

[clears throat]

Timon: Hakuna Matata.

Simba: What?

Pumbaa: [slower] Hakuna Matata. It means "no worries".

Scar: Why! If it isn't my big brother descending from on high to mingle with the commoners.

Mufasa: Sarabi and I didn't see you at the presentation of Simba.

Scar: That was today? Oh, I feel simply awful.

Timon: [seeing a red beetle] These are rare delicacies.

[takes it and eats it]

Timon: He comes with a very pleasant crunch.

Pumbaa: [through a mouthful of grub and worms; to Simba] You'll learn to love 'em!

Zazu: As the king's brother you should have been first in line.

Mufasa: Well I was first in line. Until the little hairball was born.

Mufasa: That hairball is my son and you're future king.

Scar: [Begins walking away] Oh, I shall practice my curtsey

Mufasa: Don't turn your back on me, Scar.

Scar: Oh, no Mufasa. Perhaps you shouldn't turn your back on me

Mufasa: [Roars angrily and runs in front of Scar's path] Is that a challenge?

Scar: Temper temper. I wouldn't dream of challenging you.

Zazu: Pity. Why not?

Scar: Well as far as brains go I got the lion's share but when it comes to brute strength. I'm afraid I'm at the shallow end of the gene pool

Rafiki: Look down there.

[Slowly Simba walks to the edge of the watering hole and peers inside. His reflection stares back at him]

Simba: That's not my father. That's just my reflection.

Rafiki: No. Look harder.

[Rafiki touches the water which causes waves that change Simba's reflection into Mufasa]

Rafiki: You see? He lives in you.

Mufasa's Ghost: [From above] Simba.

Simba: Father?

Mufasa's Ghost: [He appears in the sky as a group of stars] Simba, you have forgotten me.

Simba: No. How could I?

Mufasa's Ghost: You have forgotten who you are and so have forgotten me. Look inside yourself Simba. You are more than what you have become. You must take your place in the Circle of life.

Simba: How can I go back? I'm not who I used to be.

Mufasa's Ghost: [Now fully formed in the sky] Remember who you are. You are my son and the one true king. Remember who you are.

Simba: [Mufasa's ghost begins to disappear] No! Please! Don't leave me!

Mufasa's Ghost: Remember.

Simba: Father!

Mufasa's Ghost: Remember.

Simba: Don't leave me.

Mufasa's Ghost: Remember.

Rafiki: [singing] Asante sana Squash banana, wewe nugu mimi hapana.

Simba: Come on. Will you cut it out?

Rafiki: Can't cut it out. It grow right back!

Simba: Creepy little monkey. Will you stop following me? Who are you?

Rafiki: The question is who are you?

Simba: I thought I knew. Now I'm not so sure.

Rafiki: Well, I know who you are. Ssh, come here. It's a secret.

[starts singing in Simba's ear]

Rafiki: Asante sana Squash banana, wewe nugu mimi hapana

Simba: Enough already! What is that supposed to mean anyway?

Rafiki: It means you're a baboon and I'm not.

Simba: I think you're a little confused.

Rafiki: Wrong! I'm not the one who's confused. You don't even know who you are!

Simba: Oh and I suppose you know?

Rafiki: Sure do. You're Mufasa's boy!

[Simba looks at Rafiki]

Rafiki: Bye!

Simba: [Rafiki runs off and Simba chases him] Hey wait!

Simba: [Catching up] You knew my father?

Rafiki: Correction. I know you're father.

Simba: I hate to tell you this but he died. A long time ago.

Rafiki: Nope! wrong again! He's alive and I will show him to you! You follow old Rafiki. He knows the way!

Simba: You said you'd always be there for me! But you're not and it's because of me. It's my fault. It's my fault.

Zazu: [about Scar] There's one in every family sire. Two in mine actually.

Mufasa: What am I going to do with him?

Zazu: He'd make a very handsome throw rug.

Mufasa: Zazu!

Zazu: And just think. Whenever he gets dirty you can take him out and beat him!

Mufasa: Simba, I'm very disappointed in you.

Simba: I know.

Mufasa: You could have been killed! You deliberately disobeyed me! And what's worse, you put Nala in danger!

Simba: I was just trying to be brave like you.

Mufasa: Simba, I'm only brave when I have to be. Being brave doesn't mean you go looking for trouble.

Simba: But you're not scared of anything.

Mufasa: I was today.

Simba: You were?

Mufasa: Yes. I thought I might lose you.

Simba: Whoah. I guess even kings get scared, huh?

Mufasa: Mmm-hmm.

Simba: But you know what?

Mufasa: What?

Simba: I bet those hyenas were even scareder.

Mufasa: [laughs] That's 'cause nobody messes with your dad! Come here, you!

Simba: [laughing] No, no!

[Mufasa and Simba have a little wrestling match]

[slurping up a worm]

Pumbaa: Slimy yet satisfying.

Timon: Well, Simba, if it’s important to you, we’re with you ‘til the end.
