Bagheera:
And furthermore, Mowgli seems to have man's ability to get into trouble, and your influence hasn't been exactly--

Baloo:
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.

Bagheera:
Pah! A disgraceful performance. Associating with those undesirable, scatterbrained apes. Huh. I hope he learned something from that experience.

Mowgli:
[sighs, singing in his sleep] Scooby-dooby, dooby-doo.

Baloo:
Ha, ha. That's my boy.

Bagheera:
Oh, nonsense. [Baloo puts leaves under Mowgli's head.] Baloo? Get over here. I'd like to have a word with you.

Baloo:
A word? You going to 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 that he has a 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 looks himself in the river and sees that he, too, has a 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] Baloo, birds of a feather should flock together. You wouldn't marry a panther, would you?

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

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

Baloo:
[seriously] Oh, stop worrying, Baggy. Stop worrying, I'll take care of him.

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

Baloo:
Can a guy make one mistake?

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

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

Bagheera:
He hates man with a vengeance, you know that! Because he fears man's gun and man's fire.

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

Bagheera:
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!

Baloo:
No! Well, well, what are we going to do?

Bagheera:
[seeing that Baloo is now just as worried about Mowgli as he is] We'll 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:
[furiously] 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:
Be-because he won't listen to me!

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

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

Baloo:
But-- Well, can't-- Well, can I wait until morning?

Bagheera:
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.]

Baloo:
[sighs; he isn't sure how to tell Mowgli the difficult truth] Oh, boy. Mowgli? Mowgli. Um, it's time to get up.

Mowgli:
[wakes up with a yawn] Oh, hi, Baloo.

Baloo:
Hi. Hey, rub that old sleep outta your eyes. You and me... We got a long walk ahead of us.

Mowgli:
[not really noticing that Baloo is now looking melancholy] Swell! Gee we'll have lots of fun together!

Baloo:
[sadly] Sure, yeah. Yeah. All right, let's hit the trail, kid. See you around, Bagheera.

Mowgli:
Well, good-bye Bagheera. Me and Baloo, we've got things to do.

Bagheera:
Goodbye, man-cub. Good luck.
