(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.

(Baloo shrugs)

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--

Baloo: No.

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.
