[the monkeys have taken Mowgli away and have tricked Baloo into falling off a cliff]
Baloo: [hollering] Bagheera! BAGHEERA!
[far away, Bagheera hears Baloo’s echoing holler and Bagheera starts back]
Bagheera: Well, it's happened. It took a little longer than I thought, but it's happened.
[Baloo struggles up the cliff while Bagheera returns to the cliff where Baloo fell, just as Baloo climbs back up]
Baloo: [hollering right in Bagheera’s ear] BAGHEERA!
[his echoing holler startles and stuns Bagheera, who glares at him]
Baloo: Oh, you heard me, huh?
Bagheera: Mowgli? Mowgli!
[he turns to Baloo]
Bagheera: All right, what's happened? Where's Mowgli?
Baloo: They ambushed me, thousands of 'em!
[he strikes several fighting poses as he says:]
Baloo: I jabbed with my left, then I swung with a right, and then I…
Bagheera: [exasperated] Oh, for the last time, what happened to Mowgli?
Baloo: Like I told ya, them mangy monkeys carried him off!
Bagheera: The ancient ruins? Oh, I hate to think what will happen when he meets that king of theirs.
