Simba: You’re right, I’m not. Now are you satisfied?
Nala: No, just disappointed.
Simba: You know you’re starting to sound like my father.
Nala: Good. At least one of us does.
Simba: Will you cut that out?

Simba: How can I go back? I’m not who I used to be.
Zazu: Checking in with the morning report.
Mufasa: Fire away.
Zazu: Well, the buzz from the bees is that the leopards are in a bit of a spot. And the baboons are going ape over this. Of course, the giraffes are acting like they’re above it all. The tick birds are pecking on the elephants. I told the elephants to forget it, but they can’t. The cheetahs are hard up, but I always say, cheetahs never prosper.

Young Simba: Dad?
Young Simba: We’re pals, right?
Young Simba: And we’ll always be together, right?
Mufasa: Simba, let me tell you something my father told me. Look at the stars. The great kings of the past are up there, watching over us.
Young Simba: Really?
Mufasa: Yes. So whenever you feel alone, just remember that those kings will always be there to guide you. And so will I.
Rafiki: The question is, who are you?
Simba: [sighs] I thought I knew, but now I’m not so sure.

Timon: No, no, no. I mean he’s depressed.
Zazu: [about Scar] There’s one in every family, sire. Two in mine, actually. And they always manage to ruin special occasions.
Mufasa: What am I going to do with him?
Zazu: He’d make a very handsome throw rug.
Mufasa: [Surprised] Zazu!
Zazu: And just think, whenever he gets dirty, you can take him out and beat him.
