The Jungle Book1967
Baloo! Over here. I like to have a word with you.
A word? You gonna talk some more? [yawns] All right! What's up, 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]
I grew up in the jungle. Take a look at me!
Yes, just look at yourself! Look at that eye!
[Baloo looks himself in the river and sees his black eye.]
Yeah. It's beautiful, ain't it?
Frankly, you're a disreputable sight.
Well, you don't look exactly like a basket of fruit yourself.
[Bagheera also looks himself in the river and sees his black eye.]
D'oh! [clears his throat] Baloo, you can't adopt Mowgli as your son.
Uh.... How can I put it?
[Baloo eats a handful of grapes]
Baloo, birds of a feather should flock together. You wouldn't marry a panther, would you?
[chuckling] I don't know. Come to think of it, no panther ever asked me!
[flustered] Baloo, y-y-you've got to be serious about--
Oh, stop worrying, Baggy! Quit worrying! I'll take care of him.
Yes, like you did when the monkeys kidnapped him?
Can't a guy make one mistake?
Not in the jungle! And another thing: Sooner or later, Mowgli will meet Shere Khan.
[suddenly very serious] The tiger?! What's he got against the kid?
He hates man with a vengenance. You know that! Because he fears man's gun and man's fire.
But little Mowgli don't have those things!
And Shere Khan won't wait until he does. He'll get Mowgli while he's young and helpless. Just one swipe.
Oh! Well, well what are we gonna do?
Well, we do what's best for the boy.
You better believe it. You name it, and I'll do it.
Good! Then make Mowgli go to the man-village.
[now angry] Are you outta your mind?! I promised him he could stay here in the jungle with me!
Well, that's just the point! As long as he remains with you, he's in danger! So, it's up to you.
B-b-because he won't listen to me!
[humbled] But I love that kid. I love him like he was my own cub.
Then, think of what's best for Mowgli and not yourself.
Well, c... Well, can't I wait until morning?
It's morning now. Go on, Baloo.
