The Jungle Book (2016) Quotes
He never listens.
I think they like me.
I'm Mowgli of the Seoni, and this is my home!
NOW he can climb.
We'll try to hold them off.
I realize you weren't born a wolf, but couldn't you at least act like one?
You say you want to go to the man-village. I say, you could be a man right here.
If anything happens to that kid, I'll never forgive myself!
Relax, kid. No need to get worked up. 'kay?
I can get used to this.
Kaa : [to Mowgli] Poor, sweet little cub. What are you doing so deep in the jungle?
Mowgli : This is my home.
Kaa : Don't you know what you are? I know what you are. I know where you came from.
Mowgli : You do?
Kaa : Yesssss. Would you like to see?
I can't help but notice there's this strange odor today. What is it, this scent that I'm on? I almost... I almost think it was some kind of... man-cub.
Shift your hunting ground for a few years and everyone forgets how the law works. Well, let me remind you. A man-cub becomes man, and man is FORBIDDEN!
But the one you have to watch out for is the cuckoo bird. Do you know how the cuckoo bird survives? By preying on a mother's weakness. The cuckoo bird is too cleaver to raise its young. Instead, it sneaks its eggs into the nests of simpler birds; so, when they hatch, the mother bird is fooled. She feeds them, nurtures them... And do you know what happens to her own chicks? They starve and die from neglect, all because a mother loved a chick that wasn't her own.
Raksha : Why are you doing this? He's gone! Isn't that what you want?
Shere Khan : I want him dead. Once he gets word of what happened here, he'll come back... and I'll be waiting.
Blackbuck : Whoa! Don't forget the truce!
Bagheera : I know the law, bucks.
Many strange tales are told of this jungle, but none so strange as the tale of the cub we call Mowgli.
When I found him many years ago he was just an infant abandoned in the woods. If he was going to survive, I knew he needed a people. A people to protect him. That's why I entrusted him to the wolves.
Shere Khan : Well, I guess it's done then... unless I can draw him BACK OUT!
Raksha : Akela!
Shere Khan : Have I got your attention now? I didn't want it to be this way. I made it SO simple. All I asked for was one thing, and you DENIED me! Well, that - ends - now. Spread the word! Until I have the man-cub, these hills are my hills. You did not RESPOND to reason, so now you will know fear!
Wait wait wait wait wait I have no problem with that. I don't have any problem with that. I came up here without an invitation. It was extremely presumptuous of me. Let me interrupt myself. I just gotta say you guys are so much handsomer in person than anyone know. No one ever gets up close to you. Why? Because of the smell. The smell is rough. But it's not just oh look at me. It's I got the brains. You guys got the know-how. You got the noggin You came up with this stuff with the thumb. Come on show me. How do you do that? I can't do that. Look I scratch I rub I can grab a fish. But I was hoping and you may not be open to this at all but I was hoping and once again it's a dream but i was hoping that I might become a bandar-log myself. Gosh I wanna be like you. I am hitching my wagon to your star.
But, I was hoping - and you may not be open to this at all - but I was hoping - and once again it's a dream - but I was hoping that I might become a bandar-log myself. Gosh, I wanna be like you. I am hitching a wagon to your star!
You have never been a more endangered species than you are at this moment.
And could you keep your voice down? I'm trying to concentrate.
I would have done this myself but I'm afraid of heights.
Baloo : Hey! Hang on! Can you hang on? Can you just hang on? I climbed a mountain to see you - and I'm not a climber - just to be in your presence. For me this is a dream come true. Oh!
King Louie : Throw him off the cliff!
King Louie : No one leaves!
Baloo : I can show myself out. Thanks. B'-bye.
King Louie : You know who I am?
Mowgli : No.
King Louie : I am the King of the Bandar-log. Call me Louie.
King Louie : Just one thing we need to reach our full potential. Bring me that red flower, and we rule this jungle. I will protect you, and you will want for nothing ever again.
Mowgli : I can't!
King Louie : You can or you won't?
Mowgli : I can't!
King Louie : You will!
Kaa : Hi, little cub. Oh, no. Don't be scared. I'm not gonna hurt you.
Mowgli : I was just passing through. I don't want any trouble.
Kaa : There's no trouble. Are you alone out here? Hm, that's not good. We should never be alone.
Mowgli : I'm waiting for a friend. He should be here soon.
Kaa : I can stay with you until he gets here. Would that be all right? I'll keep you safe, just you and me, sweet thing.
King Louie : Where you goin', man-cub?
Mowgli : Stay away from me!
King Louie : You don't have anyone now. I'm your only hope. I can make it real good for you here. Where else you gonna go?
Mowgli : I'll go back to the pack! I'll go back to Akela!
King Louie : Akela? Oh. You didn't hear? Shere Khan killed him. Must've been on account of you.
Mowgli : No! You're lying!
King Louie : And YOU are a man-cub who wants to live in a jungle.
Mowgli : How do you know that?
King Louie : Kid, I got ears. My ears got ears. You wanna live here? You need a people to protect you. Only I can protect you - and I will for a price.
Mowgli : I don't have anything to give you.
King Louie : I think you DO.
