The Jungle Book1967
And furthermore, Mowgli seems to have man's ability to get into trouble, and your influence hasn't been exactly--
Shhh! Keep it down, you're going to wake up little buddy. Well, he's had a big day, it was a real sockaroo. You know it ain't easy learning to be like me.
Pah! A disgraceful performance. Associating with those undesirable, scatterbrained apes. Huh. I hope he learned something from that experience.
[sighs, singing in his sleep] Scooby-dooby, dooby-doo.
Ha, ha. That's my boy.
Oh, nonsense. [Baloo puts leaves under Mowgli's head.] Baloo? Get over here. I'd like to have a word with you.
A word? You going to 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 that he has a 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 looks himself in the river and sees that he, too, has a 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?
I don't know. [chuckling] Come to think of it, no panther ever asked me!
[flustered] Baloo, y-y-you've got to be serious about this--
[seriously] Oh, stop worrying, Baggy. Stop worrying, I'll take care of him.
Yes, like you did when the monkeys kidnapped him, huh?
Can a guy make one mistake?
Not in the jungle. And another thing: Sooner or later, Mowgli will meet Shere Khan.
[suddenly very shocked] The tiger? What's he got against the kid?
He hates man with a vengeance, you know that! Because he fears man's gun and man's fire.
But little Mowgli don't have those things.
Shere Khan won't wait until he does. He'll get Mowgli while he remains young and helpless. [raises a paw at Baloo] Just one swipe!
No! Well, well, what are we going to do?
[seeing that Baloo is now just as worried about Mowgli as he is] We'll 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.
[furiously] 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.
Be-because he won't listen to me!
[humbled] But I love that kid. [sniffles] I loved him like he was my own cub.
Then think of what's best for Mowgli, and not yourself.
But-- Well, can't-- Well, can I wait until morning?
It's morning now. Go on, Baloo.
[An emotional Baloo sighs and walks towards Mowgli before looking back at Bagheera with a choked-up facial expression. Bagheera understands that it's really hard for him, but he urges him with a nod.]
[sighs; he isn't sure how to tell Mowgli the difficult truth] Oh, boy. Mowgli? Mowgli. Um, it's time to get up.
[wakes up with a yawn] Oh, hi, Baloo.
Hi. Hey, rub that old sleep outta your eyes. You and me... We got a long walk ahead of us.
[not really noticing that Baloo is now looking melancholy] Swell! Gee we'll have lots of fun together!
[sadly] Sure, yeah. Yeah. All right, let's hit the trail, kid. See you around, Bagheera.
Well, good-bye Bagheera. Me and Baloo, we've got things to do.
Goodbye, man-cub. Good luck.
