Pumbaa: What’d ya do, kid?
Young Simba: Something terrible. But I don’t wanna talk about it.
Timon: Good. We don’t wanna hear about it.
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.

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?
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 connnected in the great Circle of Life.
Timon: Look, kid. Bad things happen, and you can’t do anything about it. Right?
Young 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.
Young Simba: Everything the light touches… But what about that shadowy place?
Mufasa: That’s beyond our borders. You must never go there, Simba.
Young 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.
Young Simba: There’s more?
Mufasa: [laughing] Simba.
Young Simba: All right, it worked.
Young Nala: We lost him.
Young Simba: I – am a genius.
Young Nala: Hey, genius, it was my idea.
Young Simba: Yeah, but *I* pulled it off.
Young Nala: With *me*.
Young Simba: Oh, yeah?
[leaps at Nala who flips Simba on his back]
Young Nala: Pinned ya!
Young 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]
Young Nala: Pinned ya again!
Young Simba: I’m so hungry I could eat a whole zebra.
Timon: Ah-ha, we’re fresh out of zebra.
Young Simba: Any antelope?
Young Simba: Hippo?
Timon: Nope. Listen kid: if you live with us, you’re gonna have to eat like us.
Tricked into thinking he killed his father, a guilt ridden lion cub flees into exile and abandons his identity as the future King.
