The Lion King

  • Geez! It's a lion! Run, Pumbaa! Move it!
  • Pumbaa, are you nuts? We're talking about a lion; Lions eat guys like us!
  • He's gonna get bigger.
  • A - huh! That's the stupidest thing I ever heard. Maybe he'll b-... Hey, I got it! What if he's on our side? You know, having a lion around might not be such a bad idea.
  • Who's the brains in this outfit?
  • My point exactly.
  • I saved you. [Pumbaa snorts] Pumbaa helped... a little.
  • Gee. He looks blue.
  • No, no, no. I mean he's depressed.
  • Nothing, he's at the top of the food chain! [laughs] The food chain! [chuckles nervously]
  • So where you from?
  • Ah, you're an outcast! That's great. So are we.
  • Good. We don't wanna hear about it.
  • No, no, no. Amateur. Lie down before you hurt yourself. It's "You got to put your past behind you."
  • Look, kid. Bad things happen, and you can't do anything about it. Right?
  • Wrong! When the world turns its back on you, you turn your back on the world.
  • Repeat after me. [clears throat] Hakuna Matata.
  • Nothing. What's a motto with you? [laughs]
  • How did you feel?
  • [clapping Pumbaa's mouth shut] Hey, Pumbaa, not in front of the kids.
  • Ah-ha, we're fresh out of zebra.
  • Nah-ah.
  • Nope. Listen kid: if you live with us, you're gonna have to eat like us.
  • This looks like a good spot to rustle up some grub.
  • A grub. What's it look like?
  • Tastes like chicken.
  • [seeing a red beetle] These are rare delicacies. [takes it and eats it] He comes with a very pleasant crunch.
  • I'm telling you, kid: this is the great life. No rules, no responsibilities... [he reaches into a hole in a log and various insects skitter out, with him holding a blue bug; he points to the rest of the insects] Ooh! The little cream-filled kind!
  • Pumbaa, I don't wonder; I know.
  • They're fireflies. Fireflies that, uh... got stuck up on that big bluish-black thing.
  • Pumbaa, with you, everything's gas.
  • Yeah?
  • You mean a bunch of royal dead guys are watching us?
  • [Trying to push Pumbaa, whose stuck under a log, while running away from a Lioness] Why do I always have to save your... Ahhh!
  • Let me get this straight. You know her. She knows you. But she wants to eat him. And everybody's okay with this? [jumps up suddenly] [yells] Did I miss something?
  • It's not gravel, it's grovel.
  • Let me get this straight. You're the king? And you never told us?
  • But with power!
  • Hey, whatever she has to say, she can say in front of us. Right, Simba?
  • It starts. You think you know a guy...
  • I tell ya, Pumbaa, this stinks!
  • Not you, THEM! Him... Her... alone.
  • [singing] I can see what's happening.
  • [singing] And they don't have a clue.
  • [singing] They'll fall in love and here's the bottom line: Our trio's down to two.
  • [singing] [sarcastic, with French accent] The sweet caress of twilight. [normal voice, but still sarcastic] There's magic everywhere. And with all this romantic atmosphere, Disaster's in the aiiiiiiir!
  • [to Nala, after she accidentally surprises him] Don't ever do that again! Carnivores, ugh!
  • I thought he was with you.
  • Gone back? What do you mean? [He looks to the tree. Rafiki has disappeared] Hey! What's going on here? Who's the monkey?
  • Who?
  • The monkey's his uncle?
  • [of the decimated Pride Rock] We're gonna fight your uncle... for this?
  • Whoa. Talk about your fixer-upper.
  • Hyenas. I hate hyenas. [whispers to Simba] So what your plan for getting past those guys?
  • Good idea. [reacts] Hey!
  • What do you want me to do, dress in drag and do the hula?!
  • [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'...
  • Forrrr some bacon?
  • He's a big pig.
  • You can be a big pig, too. Oy!
  • [fleeing the hyenas] Lemme in! Lemme in!
  • Please don't eat me!
  • Uh-oh! They called him the pig.
  • Shouldn't have done that
  • Now they're in for it!

The Lion King II: Simba's Pride

  • No worries, Simba. We're on her like stink on a warthog.
  • It's the hard truth, Pumbaa. Live with it.
  • The good news is, we found your daughter. The bad news is, we dropped a warthog on her.
  • Pumbaa, let me define BABY-SITTING!
  • I'm sorry, I wasn't listening. Did you say something, Princess?
  • That's not a king. That's a fuzzy maraca!
  • Tango-Charlie-Alpha. What's your position?
  • [speaks under his breath] Why do I bother?
  • [he and Pumbaa narrowly escape being trampled by a herd of antelope] This must be where the deer and the antelope play!
  • AHHH! Don't eat me, please! I... I never really met your tyrant, I mean, uh, Scar! Scar, oh heck of a guy. A little moody, but...
  • Kiara! Thank goodness! Oh. Hey, for once, we're not following you. This just happens to be the best smorgasbord in the Pride Lands! Bugs everywhere! But, you don't call for a reservation and... yeesh!
  • Yeesh! You need to get out more. Fun! Yee-ha!
  • No, you were going to watch her.
  • Take that, you creepy warthog! Say it, fat! Fatty fat fat.
  • Good question. Uh, let me ask you one.
  • Very hypothetically. There's this guy...
  • No. No, he's not a lion. Yeesh, definitely not a lion... and uh... uh, his daughter, um, say... vanished?
  • Boy, does she need a hobby.
  • [holding Pumbaa's tail] Don't anybody move! This things loaded... I'll let you have it!

The Lion King 1½

  • [singing along to opening of "The Lion King"] What's on the menu? It could be ceviche. It's stinky. Ooh it's Pumbaa.
  • Yes, Pumbaa. Well, enough of that. [fast forwards film with his remote]
  • I'm fast forwarding to the part where we come in.
  • Au contraire, my porcine pal. I've got the remote.
  • [fast forwarding] We're not in the beginning of the story.
  • [fast forwarding] Yeah, but they don't know that.
  • Hey, I've got an idea. Why don't we tell them our story?
  • [commenting on his home] Here we are... from Pride Rock, to the Pit of Shame.
  • [about his species] We're so low on the food chain we're underground!
  • Funny, I thought you were going in a whole different direction.
  • Oh, boy. It's the fraught fest.
  • [clapping] Bravo, Uncle Max! Way'ta sell it to the cheap seats!
  • But when they die, they become the grass, and we eat the grass, right?
  • [to Mom] He has a point.
  • [camera pans over to Timon] Well, now I'm convinced... .
  • Scream, "MOMMY!"
  • [terrified] Hy... hy... hy...
  • What's going on here? Pumbaa, are you sitting on the remote?
  • I uh, I guess I owe everyone an apology. All right so I made a teensy mistake, like we all haven't broken into song on sentry duty before uh-haha come on, let me have a show of hands! Ooook.
  • [is being hugged by his mother] Ma... . choking... . not breathing...
  • And so with my spirits high I boldy ventured off where no meerkat had dared to go before. I put my past behind me Ha! and never looked back. [sobs hysterically] Mommy, Mommy! What am I doing? Which way should I go?
  • Harpoon a tomato?
  • Perfect! Mind taking that stick of yours and drawing me a map, bub? [Rafiki smacks him over the head with his stick]
  • It's coming to me. It's either that slug I ate, or I'm having an epiphany.
  • Oh, I thought you were a "scream"
  • I'm Timon.
  • No, really.
  • It's as if you have some special power.
  • This could be the start of a beautiful...acquaintanceship.
  • Hey-ey-ey, it's the monkey!
  • Aw, who cares? It's not important.
  • [mimicking Rafikki] Look beyond what you see.
  • So, that's your special power?
  • Are you kidding? It was a gas! [starts laughing]
  • Yeah, that's probably for the best.
  • Well, that worked like a dream.
  • Sarcasm is a foreign language to you, isn't it?
  • Oh, perfect! We moved into the theater district. Get a load of these guys. Knock it off!
  • I see carnivores.
  • I am perfectly happy right here. It's remote, private, no unexpected visitors... . [the shadows of hyenas march across the wall, as the intro to "Be Prepared" plays] Something tells me that ain't the traveling company of Riverdance.
  • What this place lacks in water and shade, it makes up for with searing heat and blinding sunshine. Home, sweet home, Pumbaa!
  • Oh yes, let's.
  • Friends stick together to the end.
  • How convenient. Enter omniscient monkey, right on cue.
  • That's it. No more fortune-cookies for you!
  • The monkey was right! We found it! The perfect life!
  • He had the perfect name for it, too.
  • [sits at a rock] Such a wonderful phrase. It had this rhythm. Laduda Ladada.
  • Hmm. No, that's not it.
  • Quiet, Pumbaa. I'm trying to think.
  • Two words.
  • Six syllables.
  • Twelve letters.
  • Rhymes with... .
  • Think, think, think.
  • I forget.
  • HEY! How can you dance at a time like this? I'm DYIN' here!... . Ooh, sorry about that, pal.
  • ....Come again?
  • Who knows why fate led us to little Simba? [images of Simba scaring Timon run throughout the scene] Maybe it was my love of adventure, my innate courage, or my... . Okay! Who's in charge of the freeze-frames?
  • Anywho... . Rescuing Simba was a cinch. Then came the real scary part: [dramatic music] Parenthood.
  • (Voice very faint) Go? Go where?
  • [gets the idea] Oh, you mean go?! Then why didn't you say so?! Come on, let's go! (On the log bridge) Listen, kid, when you gotta go, you gotta go!(On a very high tree, "Jungle Boogie" plays)Young lion, get down from there!
  • I'm counting to three!
  • One! Two!(Pumbaa jumps onto Timon, making a pillow for Simba to land on)(Gasping for air) Threeeeee.
  • Wha? Again?!
  • ou know, kid, this means you'll be up again about 2 hours from now. (Location: A river leading to an 500 ft waterfall. "Jungle Boogie" plays while Simba swims peacefully. A floating camera captures Timon swimming vigurously.) Hang on, Simba! I'll save ya! (Simba goes off the waterfall; Pumbaa catches him.) (falls) YYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
  • (extremely tired) You know, I'm gonna get old walking over this thing. (Simba Pounces Timon in the Air, "Jungle Boogie" plays for a final time.) YYAAAAAAAAAAAYAYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAYAYYYYYYYAAAY!
  • (Angry with bloodshot eyes) WHAT HAVE YOU GOT AGAINST THE CONCEPT OF A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP, HUH?!
  • Sleep tight.
  • I'm out!
  • We can't let them feel the love tonight.
  • (about Simba) He's gone? Whaddaya mean he's gone?!
  • Yes please, but be a dear and skip to the part about Simba. Not that your childhood wasn't fascinating!
  • (thinks) Blah blah blah. Why is she toying with us? This crazy chick is gonna eat us!
  • You! No, no, don't say a word. I know what you're going to say. [Imitates Rafiki] Did you find Hakuna Matata? [Normal] Well, yes, I did! Thank you very much. [Laughs] And I am happy. Happy, happy, deliriously happy. [Imitates] Ho ha ha! I see. Happy, is it? So, if you're so happy, why do you look so miserable? [Normal] Miserable, you say? Why should I be miserable? Oh, I don't know. Maybe my two best pals in the world deserted me. Heh. They - they've headed off on some heroic mission... . My friends... . are gone. [Realizes] And... . my Hakuna Matata went with them!
  • Ay. Thanks. I'm glad we had this talk.
  • [singing] [from the movie] Luau! If you're hungry for a hunk of fat and juicy meet / Eat my buddy, Pumbaa, here 'cause he's a... . [Timon pauses the movie] Let's just cut to the chase, shall we?
  • Ahh... . I love the smell of Pumbaa in the morning.
  • Hey Pumbaa, what do you call a hyena with half a brain?
  • GIFTED!
  • Waaait, wait, wait, wait. Hold on a second.
  • Shenzi Marie Predatora Veldetta Jacquelina Hyena... . would you do me the honor of becoming... . my bride?
  • Shenzi Marie, please. I know what you're thinking: "We're too different." "It'll never work." "What will the children look like?"
  • Listen to me! The problems of a couple of wacky kids like us don't amount to hill of termites in this nutty circle-of-life thing. And so I ask you: If not now, when? If not me, who? I'm lonely.
  • Well, now that we're all here, it does.

The Lion King & The Iron Giant

The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar

  • "Don't worry, ladies. Me and Pumbaa have everything under control."
  • "Zuri! You hit the jackpot!"
  • "It's worse than that, Pumbaa. It sounds like work."
  • "Work? Danger? Definitely not. Have you forgotten our problem-free philosophy? It means no worries . . ."
  • "Congratulations, Bunga! We always knew you had it in you!"

Television

Timon & Pumbaa

  • Pumbaa, we're trapped in a crate!
  • Poppycock!
  • Oh, crud! Now we definitely can't eat him!
  • I got it! We'll call you Speedy! Speedy the Snail! How do you like that juxtaposition? Giving a snail, a noticeably slow creature, the name, Speedy, huh?
  • Like who? We're in a box! It's not like we're in France where snails are considered a delicacy.
  • Oh, no-no-no-no-no! He is with us!
  • We're in France, where snails are considered a delicacy.
  • I want a snail! Raw! And by that, I mean uncooked, meaning still alive!
  • Yes. With cute little gumdrop eyes and a swirly, curly-cue shell.
  • [nervously] I am a human.
  • Hey! You're the Pumbaa de Milo!
  • This is no time for comedy, Pumbaa! Our bestest new pal, Speedy, is still in life-threatening danger!
  • [sarcastically] What do you want me to do, dress in drag and do the hula?
  • Of course I did, Pumbaa. That's why they gave me such a big reward.
  • Isn't it ironic? That was the exact amount of the reward! [a police siren is heard] Uh-oh!
  • [as Pumbaa gets angry at Timon for not finding gold] Pumbaa, there's just one thing that frightens me more than mummy beetles and curses.
  • [loses it] An angry warthog! [Timon screams as the screen goes black]
  • [confused at two Pumbaas] Pumbaa, if you're Pumbaa, then what Pumbaa is that Pumbaa?
  • [furiously, picks the fox up by the scruff] Wait just a minute! You mean to tell me that this was just a stupid game of tag?! [the fox smiles and quickly nods]
  • Uh oh.
  • He called him a pig.
  • Shouldn't have done that.

House of Mouse

  • Waiter, there's a fly in my friend's soup! I want one too! Hey, Simba, what did you get in your soup?
  • Excuse me. Did anyone order a blue-butt baboon? Because I ain't eatin' it.
  • Ooh hoo ha! Older than Rafiki! Ha ha ha! [Gets clubbed on the head by Rafiki]
  • He he he! [Gets clubbed on the head by the Wicked Queen]

The Lion Guard

  • "Yeah! And in Bunga's case, he's a stinky little honey badger!"
  • "Dinner is served!"
  • "Whoa, whoa, whoa. Not so fast, kids."
  • "All right, all right. Everybody back in line. No more freebies."
  • "Come on, kid, er, I mean, Your Sage-iness.
  • "You're too kind."
  • "You said it, Pumbaa. He's even given the Lion Guard advice. Anybody remember a little thing called the dam?"
  • "Bunga! The bird said a snake bit you on the bottom."
  • "But he's not! He's fine. So let's celebrate!"
  • "You're right, Pumbaa. It is. Friends don't let friend eat alone!"
  • "Not this girl cheetah! Not today! You're eating with us, and I'm not taking no for an answer."
  • "Good, good. Oh, wow. You are so soft. Do you know how soft you are?"
  • "Come on, Pumbaa. The Utamu grubs only come out once a year. And this year, we're gonna get 'em."
  • "Keep him? No. No more kids. We already raised a lion, remember? Besides, he's a honey badger. He can fend for himself! So long, kid. Thanks for the grub!"
  • "Can we? The little Bunga got us the most delicious grubs in the Pride Lands! How can we not? C'mon, Bunga! From now on, you're with us!"
  • "Eh, Bunga. Utamu grubs are great. But that's not why we celebrate."
  • "Besides, this year . . . We got the Utamu!"
  • "Why? Why? Oh, cruel savanna, to take both of our babies in the same day!"
  • "See? Barely inside and we're already lost!"
  • "Sorry I lost it back there, Kion."
  • "And just let them into your heart, you know, just enough, and . . . and then . . ."
  • "And to think . . . you were worried that we'd never find them."


Video Games

Kingdom Hearts II

  • "Hey, why the long face, Simba? You gotta lighten up and live a little!"
  • "Lemme guess. The past, right?'
  • "Would you look how he's grown, Pumbaa. Why, when I rescued the little guy, he was only this big."
  • "Help! Simba! Heeelp!'
  • "Hey! What's goin' on here!?"
  • "Why am I not surprised?"
  • "Why doesn't Nala like Hakuna Matata? It's a wonderful phrase that means no worries, no cares! Live for today!"
  • "So, you're returning to the Pride Lands... You can prepare for your journey here. Whatever you do, don't get hurt."
  • "Wait a minute. We're gonna fight your uncle for THIS?"
  • "'Scuse me! Pardon me! Comin' through!"
  • "If Scar's alone, I'm sure Simba can handle it, but who knows what he has planned? Please, Sora. Go make sure Simba's all right."
  • "Hey, what's with the light show?"
  • "Whaddaya mean, "Guess so"!? What if he forgets to tell the carnivores who we are? One look at you, and you're a pig roast."
  • "We know your dad was a great king, and all. But now it's your turn. Remember what I taught ya. "You gotta put the past behind you." It's time to go out there and show everybody things are gonna be just fine!"
  • "Great! Now we're going to have to babysit!"
  • "He seemed troubled by a lot of things when we lived at the oasis. He's gotten so huge, but the most important part of him never grew up."
  • "Hey, I know! He's at the oasis. It's our favorite hangout!"
  • "Oh, no you won't! Simba'll smell you coming a mile away. And if he's smart, he'll run for the hills!"
  • "If you're looking for Simba, he probably went to the oasis. It's quiet there, and the perfect place for thinking."
  • "Simba! Come quick! There's a bazillion ghosts of Scar haunting the Pride Lands! Everybody but Nala high-tailed it out of there. And now she needs your help."
  • "It looks like something's riding on top of that monster! It couldn't be controlling it, could it?"
