Akela: When you were a cub, I looked you in the eye and saw no fear. I believed that one day you would bring peace to the jungle. But you have become a man now.

Mowgli: I'm not a man! But neither am I a wolf.

Kaa: I think we can all agree, Mowgli, that you are something the jungle has never seen before.

Mowgli: [softly] Sleep now, Shere Khan. Be angry no more.

Shere Khan: [to Mowgli] My, my. How you've grown.

[from trailer, before a race with the other wolves]

Mowgli: What happens if you fail?

Baloo: You don't JOIN THE PACK!

[Mowgli is in a cage]

Bagheera: I lived in a king's palace, in a cage just like this. I bit, and I scratched, and I spent my entire life fighting. Until one day, I just stopped, and they gave me their trust. Gain their trust, and they'll let you out.

[first lines]

Kaa: [narrates] I am the jungle's eyes. I can see the past, and the future. It is I, Kaa, who witnessed the coming of man. And the jungle trying to survive. I saw chaos and darkness come to our lands. I saw the tiger, Shere Khan, killing man, and breaking the jungle's ancient law. And then, one fateful night, I saw the jungle place its hopes into the hands of a small creature, the like of which it had never seen before.

[last lines]

Kaa: [narrates] With the tiger and the hunter now gone, the future shimmered from darkness into light. Mowgli, man and wolf, both and neither, had given the jungle a voice. And for as long as he stood watch, it would speak a lasting peace.

Shere Khan: The man-cub is mine! I have already tasted its mother's blood! It is my right.

Nisha: Your right according to whose law?

Akela: The cub is spoken for, he is one of us! You will treat him as you would your own. As long as I am alive, the pack will stand by the man-cub.

Kaa: [to a silent Mowgli] Say something, or I shall get bored. And when I get bored, I get hungry!

Kaa: The whole jungle has been watching you, man-cub.

Mowgli: Why?

Kaa: Even you must know you are unusual. Not quite a wolf, not quite a man, or neither, or both...

Akela: [to Shere Khan] This cub is under the protection of the pack. Should you decide to take me, you take on the pack, all of us.

Kaa: Are you afraid of me?

Mowgli: No...

Kaa: Sometimes fear is the only intelligent response, don't you think?

Kaa: One day you will speak, and the jungle will listen. What will you say then, man-cub?

Akela: You have no right to be here, Shere Khan.

Shere Khan: I think you'll find I stay where I please.

Akela: You kill man's cattle, you poison the jungle. You're the reason man is here!

Shere Khan: But you permitted man to live among you! You pretend he is a wolf. And you know that is the one thing he will never be. He will always be a man! YOU poisoned the jungle.

Shere Khan: My, my... how you've grown.

Shere Khan: [Slaps monkey aside] And how much chaos you've brought upon the pack. So... much more... to come.
