(At night, Mowgli asleep, Baloo and Bagheera talk)
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 gonna wake little buddies. Yeah. 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 in sleep mumbles: Yeah... scooby-dooby, dooby-doo..
Baloo: Ha, ha. That's my boy.
Bagheera (walking to water): Oh, nonsense.
Baloo, come over here. I'd like to have a word with you.
Celeste: (in Duchess's voice) Happy dreams, my love.
Bagheera's: Baloo comes over: A word? You gonna talk some more? (he yawns) All right, what's up Bagheera?
Bagheera: Baloo, a man-cub must go back to the man-village. The jungle is not the place for him.
Baloo: I grew up in the jungle. Take a look at me.
Bagheera: Yes, just look at yourself. Look at that eye.
[They both had each one eye swollen since the fight]
Slyly: Oh, my!
Baloo (looking into water): Yeah. It's beautiful, ain't it?
Bagheera: Frankly, you're a disreputable sight.
Baloo: Why, you don't look exactly like a basket of fruit yourself.
Bagheera: D'oh! Baloo, you can't adopt Mowgli as your son.
Baloo: Why not?
Bagheera: How can I put it? Baloo, birds of a feather should flock together.
Bagheera: You wouldn't marry a panther, would you?
Baloo: I don't know. Ha ha, come to think of it, no panther ever asked me.
Bagheera: Baloo, you've got to be serious about this.
Baloo: Oh, stop worrying, Baggy, stop worrying, I'll take care of him
Bagheera: Yes, like you did when the monkeys kidnapped him, huh?
Leonard: Can that ape make one mistake?
Bagheera: Not in the jungle. And another thing, sooner or later, Mowgli will meet Shere Khan.
Babar: 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.
Slyly: But Mowgli doesn't have those things.
Bagheera: Shere Khan won't wait until he does. He'll get Mowgli while he's young and helpless. Just one swipe--
Babar: (in Baloo's voice) Well, what are we gonna do?
Celeste: We have no choice, dear.
[Sun appears from horizon. actually all the time they were talking it was slowly getting brighter. By the way, their swollen eyes were getting better throughout the conversation as well - completely healed by now]
Bagheera: We'll do what's best for him.
Baloo: You better believe it, you name it now I'll do it.
Bagheera: Good. Then make Mowgli go to the man-village.
Leonard: He has a point.
Baloo: Are you out of your mind? I promised him he could stay here in the jungle with me!
Bagheera: 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. Or Franklin or his gang.
Baloo: I love that kid. I love him like he was my own cub.
Bagheera: Then think of what's best for Mowgli and not yourself.
Baloo: Well, can't I.. Well can I wait until morning?
Bagheera: It's morning now. Go on, Baloo.
Baloo walks to Mowgli: Uh..
Mowgli in sleep: Ummmm...
Baloo gulps: Oh boy. Mowgli? Mowgli? Uh, it's time to get up.
Mowgli wakes up and stretches: Oh. Hi Baloo
Baloo: Hi. Hey, rub that sleep out of your eyes. You and me, eh, we've got a long walk ahead of us.
Mowgli: Swell! We'll have lots of fun together.
Baloo: Sure. yeah. Yeah, uh.. let's hit the trail, kid. See you around, eh, Bagheera. And Cousin Leonard, Nephew Bear and friends.
Mowgli: Well, good-bye Bagheera. Me and Baloo, we've got things to do.
Bagheera: Good-bye man-cub. And good luck.
Mowgli: Come on, Baloo. All we've got to do is...(singing) Look for the bare necssities
Some good old bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife.
I mean the bare necessities,
That's why a bear can rest at ease
With just the bare necessities of life.
I'll live here in the jungle all my life!
Yeah, man! I like being a bear.
