When Blu, a domesticated macaw from small-town Minnesota, meets the fiercely independent Jewel, he takes off on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro with the bird of his dreams.
When Nigel is recruiting the Marmosets for help, he threatens three monkeys after he tosses the main one in the sky. One monkey has his hands over his eyes, another over his ears, and another over his mouth. (See, Hear, Speak No Evil).
Blu: You're standing on my throat!
Jewel: Oh, you're an American!
Blu: Thanks. I need my throat for talking. So, thank you.
Jewel: You look like me!
Blu: Oh, hi. Hi. My name is Blu. You know, like the cheese with the mold on it, that smells really bad.
Blu: That's stupid! ...
When Fernando is carrying the birds to the smugglers safe house, Jewels rips off a hole in the cloth the cage is covered with to see where they are taken. She is situated at the front part of the cage and Blue is at the rear end - closer to the door. They pretend they are dead and lay still on the cage floor. When they come in, Fernando puts the cage down on the desk still covered with the cloth with the hole (Jewels had ripped) facing Marcel - the lead smuggler. Marcel stands up, goes around his desk and pulls the cloth off of the cage, facing the cage at the side with the door. He sees the "dead" birds and in this frame Jewels is next to the door of the cage - the birds switched places.
The initial set of credits is accompanied by a reprise of "Real in Rio" from the main cast. It is then followed by a scene of a featherless Nigel being photographed by Mauro.
