Bagheera:
Baloo! Over here. I like to have a word with you.

Baloo:
A word? You gonna talk some more? [yawns] All right! What's up, Bagheera?

Bagheera:
Baloo, the Man-cub must go back to the Man Village. The jungle is not the place for him.

[Baloo eats some grapes from a tree]

Baloo:
I grew up in the jungle. Take a look at me!

Bagheera:
Yes, just look at yourself! Look at that eye!

[Baloo looks himself in the river and sees his black eye.]

Baloo:
Yeah. It's beautiful, ain't it?

Bagheera:
Frankly, you're a disreputable sight.

Baloo:
Well, you don't look exactly like a basket of fruit yourself.

[Bagheera also looks himself in the river and sees his black eye.]

Bagheera:
D'oh! [clears his throat] Baloo, you can't adopt Mowgli as your son.

Baloo:
Why not?

Bagheera:
Uh.... How can I put it?

[Baloo eats a handful of grapes]

Bagheera:
Baloo, birds of a feather should flock together. You wouldn't marry a panther, would you?

Baloo:
[chuckling] I don't know. Come to think of it, no panther ever asked me!

Bagheera:
[flustered] Baloo, y-y-you've got to be serious about--

Baloo:
Oh, stop worrying, Baggy! Quit worrying! I'll take care of him.

Bagheera:
Yes, like you did when the monkeys kidnapped him?

Baloo:
Can't a guy make one mistake?

Bagheera:
Not in the jungle! And another thing: Sooner or later, Mowgli will meet Shere Khan.

Baloo:
[suddenly very serious] The tiger?! What's he got against the kid?

Bagheera:
He hates man with a vengenance. You know that! Because he fears man's gun and man's fire.

Baloo:
But little Mowgli don't have those things!

Bagheera:
And Shere Khan won't wait until he does. He'll get Mowgli while he's young and helpless. Just one swipe.

Baloo:
Oh! Well, well what are we gonna do?

Bagheera:
Well, we do what's best for the boy.

Baloo:
You better believe it. You name it, and I'll do it.

Bagheera:
Good! Then make Mowgli go to the man-village.

Baloo:
[now angry] Are you outta your mind?! I promised him he could stay here in the jungle with me!

Bagheera:
Well, that's just the point! As long as he remains with you, he's in danger! So, it's up to you.

Baloo:
Why me?!

Bagheera:
B-b-because he won't listen to me!

Baloo:
[humbled] But I love that kid. I love him like he was my own cub.

Bagheera:
Then, think of what's best for Mowgli and not yourself.

Baloo:
Well, c... Well, can't I wait until morning?

Bagheera:
It's morning now. Go on, Baloo.
