The Jungle Book 1 Man Cub

Quotes Many strange legends are told of these jungles of India. But none so strange as the story of a small boy named Mowgli. It all began when the silence of the jungle was broken by an unfamiliar sound. It was a sound like one never heard before in this part of the jungle. It was a man-cub. Had I known how deeply I was to be involved, I would have obeyed my first impulse and walked away. This man-cub would have to have nourishment, and soon. It was many days travel to the nearest man-village and without a mother's care, he would soon perish. Then it occurred to me. Why, there'd be no problem with the mother, thanks to maternal instinct, but I wasn't so sure about Rama, the father. Ten times the rains have come and gone. And I often stopped by to see how Mowgli, the man-cub, was getting along. He was a favorite with all young wolf cubs of the pack. BAGHEERA: No man-cub was ever happier. And yet... I knew that someday he would have to go back to his own kind. Then one night, the wolf pack elders met at Council Rock. Because Shere Khan, the tiger, had returned to their part of the jungle. This meeting was to change the man-cub's entire future. AKELA: Shere Khan will surely kill the boy and all who try to protect him. Now, are we all in agreement as to what must be done? Now it is my unpleasant duty to tell the boy's father. Rama! Come over here, please. RAMA: Yes, Akela? AKELA: The Council has reached its decision. Man-cub can no longer stay with the pack. He must leave at once. RAMA: Leave? AKELA: I am sorry, Rama. There is no other way. RAMA: But-but the man-cub is-is like my own son. Surely he's entitled to the protection of the pack. AKELA: But Rama, even the strength of the pack is no match for the tiger.

RAMA: But the boy cannot survive alone in the jungle. BAGHEERA: Akela, perhaps I can be of help AKELA: You, Bagheera? How? BAGHEERA: I know of a man-village where he'll be safe. Mowgli and I have taken many walks into the jungle together. I'm sure he'll go with me. AKELA: So be it. Now there's no time to lose. Good luck. MOWGLI: Bagheera, I'm getting a little sleepy. Shouldn't we start back home? BAGHEERA: Mowgli, this time we're not going back. I'm taking you to a man-village. MOWGLI: But why? BAGHEERA: Because Shere Khan has returned to this part of the jungle and he has sworn to kill you. MOWGLI: Kill me? But why would he wanna do that? BAGHEERA: He hates men. And Shere Khan is not going to allow you to grow up to become a man - just another hunter with a gun. MOWGLI: Uhh, we'll just explain him that I'd never do a thing like that. BAGHEERA: Nonsense! No one explains anything to Shere Khan! MOWGLI: Well, maybe so. But I'm not afraid. And besides I ... BAGHEERA: Now that's enough. We'll spend a night here. Things will look better in the morning. Man-cub? Man-cub! Now come on, up this tree. It's safer up there. MOWGLI: Uh, I don't want to go back to the man-village. BAGHEERA: Go on. Up you go. MOWGLI: That limb way up there? BAGHEERA: Try Is that all the better you can climb? MOWGLI: It's too, it's too big around! And besides, I don't have any claws. BAGHEERA: Now, get some sleep. We've got a long journey ahead of us tomorrow. MOWGLI: Uh, I wanna stay in the jungle. BAGHEERA: Huh? heh, you wouldn't last one day. MOWGLI: I am not afraid. I can look after myself. Kaa: Ss-say now, what have we here? It's a man-cub. A delis-ci-ous man-cub. MOWGLI: Oh, go away and leave me alone. BAGHEERA: Oh, that's just what I should do, but I'm not. Now, please, go to sleep, man-cub. KAA: Yes-ss, man-cub, please go to sleep, please go to sleep, sleep little man-cub rest in piece. Sleep. ss-sleep MOWGLI: Ba..., bah... Bagheera ... BAGHEERA: Oh, no. Look, there's no use arguing anymore. Now, no more talk 'till morning. KAA chuckles: He won't be here in the morning BAGHEERA: Huh? Oh yes, he will, ... Kaa! Hold it, Kaa! KAA: Ohhh, my sinus-ss. You have just made a ss-serious mistake, my friend. A very ss-stupid BAGHEERA: Now, now, now, Kaa, I was... KAA: Mistake! Look me in the eye when I'm speaking to you. BAGHEERA: P-please, Kaa KAA: Both eyes if you please. You have just ss-sealed your doom. MOWGLI: Look, Bagheera! Heh-heh, look, Bagheera? Wake up, Bagheera. BAGHEERA comes up: Ah, duh, wha... KAA: Just you wait 'til I get you in my coils. MOWGLI:: Bagheera, he's got a knot in his tail! KAA: Hee-hee-hee. He's got a knot in his tail. Ooo! This is going to slow down my slithering. MOWGLI:: Ha-ha-ha... BAGHEERA: So you can look out for yourself, can you? So you want to stay in the jungle, do you? MOWGLI:: Yes, I want to stay in the jungle. BAGHEERA: Now for the last time, go to sleep! Man-cub, huh.. man-cub, ahh..
