Clayton: Sorry for the rude welcome, but I couldn't have you making a scene when we put your furry friends in their cages.
Tarzan: Why?
Clayton: Why? For 300 pounds sterling a head. Actually, I have you to thank, old boy. Couldn't have done it without you.

Tarzan: Kerchak, forgive me.

Tarzan: But I do. I have spent time with them.
Kerchak: You may be willing to risk our safety, but I'm not.

Kerchak: Protect this family and stay away from them.
[Tarzan sulks away]

Professor Porter: Oh, perhaps not...

Jane Porter: [after being caught in a tree with Tarzan] Now, you stay away from me. Like a very good wild man.
[Tarzan doesn't listen]
Jane Porter: You stay. I'm warning you... My father won't take kind to you.
[Tarzan is inches from her face]
Jane Porter: Now, that's close ENOUGH.
[Tarzan touches her face]
Jane Porter: How dare you...
[Tarzan grabs her hand, as she tries to smack him, and he notices a tear in the tip of the finger of her glove. He stares and pulls off her glove and stares at her hand. He then puts his hand next to hers to show that he's human, too. He puts his head on her chest to hear her heartbeat. Once he hears it, he pulls her head to his chest so she can hear his heartbeat]
Jane Porter: Oh, dear. Oh, dear, oh, dear, OH, dear! Mmm. Yes, thank you.
[pulls away from Tarzan's chest]
Jane Porter: It's a lovely heartbeat. It's very nice.
Tarzan: [imitating Jane] It's very nice.
Jane Porter: [thinking as though he's talking about her hair] Oh, thank you. I can't do a thing with it in this humidity and - you do speak? And all this time I thought you were this big, wild, quiet, silent, person-thing! Hmm! And why didn't you tell me? I mean, I must say I'm rather curious of who you are. I'd love to-

Jane Porter: No, no. Jane. Tarzan. Jane.
Tarzan: [points to Jane] Jane.
Jane Porter: Exactly.

Young Tarzan: I'll be the best ape ever!

Tarzan Triumphs (1943)
Tarzan: Nazi hyena dead now.

Boy: [reading Jane's letter] I must tell you, the world is at war again.
Tarzan: Why men have to kill each other?
Boy: [reading Jane's letter] Once more, the Germans - Nazis, they call them now - are on the prowl. More ruthless than the most savage beast of the jungle.
[to Tarzan]
Boy: I bet you could kill those Nazis, Tarzan. Just like you killed Bowgat, the gorilla.
Tarzan: No. Tarzan kill Bowgat to save Jane and Boy. Why Tarzan kill Nazis? No more war talk! When Jane come home?
Boy: She said she can't come home until her mother's entirely recovered. It may be weeks. It's her duty, Tarzan.
Tarzan: Tarzan know. Read more.
Boy: [reading Jane's letter] Goodbye, my own darlings. I long for you so very, very much. More than words can say. All my love always, Jane.

Tarzan: All my love. Always. Jane.

Tarzan: [watching Zandra sleep] She still sleeps. Good.
Boy: Isn't she beautiful?
Tarzan: Boy sleep now!

Tarzan: He dead now.
Zandra: But the others!
Tarzan: Others leave Boy and Tarzan alone, Tarzan leave them alone.
Zandra: But they won't. And as long as they are here, Boy will never be safe.
Tarzan: Tarzan stay, protect Boy like Jane say.
Boy: Ah, Tarzan! You don't need to worry about me. I want you to go with Zandra and fight those Nazis!
Tarzan: No!
Boy: But Zandra saved my life!
Tarzan: Tarzan save Zandra's life. Pay back. Tarzan swim now!

Boy: Don't worry, Zandra. He'll change his mind about helping you. Sure he will! Sometimes he's like that with Jane. But she knows how to get her way!

Zandra: Pallandria was such a paradise, too. Before they came.
[Annoyed, Tarzan pulls away and leaves]
Boy: It's working! It just takes time. Can you cook?
Zandra: Yes.
Boy: C'mon!

Boy: Zandra cooked dinner for you!
Tarzan: Looks good.
[eats]
Boy: How is it?
Tarzan: Tastes good.
Zandra: I'm glad you like my cooking.
[Tarzan nods approvingly and Zandra and Boy wink at each other]
Zandra: Would you like some more?
Tarzan: More!
[Zandra leaves to get more food]
Boy: I'll bet Zandra will come over and cook for us often. After you've driven those Nazis away.
Tarzan: [stops eating] So!
Zandra: [re-enters] What's the matter?
Tarzan: Zandra try to bribe Tarzan! No!

Tarzan: Zandra! Why Zandra leave now?
Zandra: My place is in Pallandria!
Tarzan: Zandra stay here!
Zandra: No Tarzan.
Tarzan: Tarzan say yes!
Zandra: I must return to help my people!
Tarzan: Come back till Nazis go away!
Zandra: They will never go away! I must go!
Tarzan: Zandra very stubborn! Tarzan know best. Come, please.

Tarzan: [murmuring in his sleep] Come here, Boy! Boy!
Zandra: Tarzan.
Tarzan: [awakens] Zandra. Tarzan dream.
Zandra: You had a terrible fall, and I gave you the jungle medicine to make you sleep. Just as you gave it to me.
Tarzan: Now Tarzan remember! Nazis! Where Boy?

Tarzan and the Jungle Boy (1968)

Tarzan: It's been done.

Myrna: Now let me tell you something, Mr. Tarzan. I was only fifteen when my dad and I covered the Alaska earthquake. It was I who found the Silk Stocking Killer in Paris, and got his exclusive story, while the entire police department was out looking for him. I can take care of myself.
Tarzan: Well that's great, because I don't want that responsibility.

Tarzan: You're a chief now, Buhara. And laws are important. But when a law is wrong, our chiefs try to change it.

[last lines]

Tarzan: Tarzan watch Boy.
Jane: I know you will. I know I shouldn't worry. I know there's no need to worry as long as you're with me. At first, I used to have so many little fears for myself, for Boy. But one by one, you've chased them all away. Wouldn't it be strange if someday I became as brave as you are?

Tarzan: [pointing] Jane. Tarzan. Tarzan. Jane.


Tarzan's Secret Treasure (1941)

Tarzan: People nowrashima. Fools!
Jane: Not all of them. But none of them have what we have.
Tarzan: Tarzan have Jane.
Jane: They'll be gone tomorrow and we'll be alone again. Wonderfully alone as we've always been. Has it seemed a long time, Tarzan?

Boy: Who? Tarzan?
Jane: Yes. He has everything any man could want. Everything.
Tarzan: [sweeps Jane into his arms] Tarzan have Jane!

Jane: How do you do, Mr. O'Doul?
O'Doul: I'm doing better, ma'am, thanks to your charming presence.
Tarzan: O'Doul good little man. Like Cheeta.
O'Doul: Ah, now don't be comparin' me with him, Mr. Tarzan. If this here heathen resembles anybody, it's me wife's second brother, Marcus V. O'Connell.

Jane: My, the water's beautiful tonight!
Tarzan: Not water. Jane!
Jane: Mr. Tarzan, as nice little Mr. O'Doul would say, 'tis blarney you're giving me.
Tarzan: Blarney?
Jane: We call it love, darling. Do you remember when we first used to swim here?

Tarzan: What man do?
Jane: Well, they shake hands, that is, if she offers him her hand. Then he bows from the hips and asks permission to call. And then if she's of age, he takes her to some parties or theater or somewhere to dine. And then, if he decides he wants her for his wife, he goes to see her father.
Tarzan: Why? What do with father?
Jane: To ask him his permission to marry his daughter.

Tarzan: Jane?

Jane Parker: What color are your eyes? Yes, I know, the color of the forest. Gray-green. I wonder what you'd look like dressed. Pretty good! You'd be a great success in London. And I believe you'd love it.
Tarzan: Love it?
Jane Parker: Or would you? Women are such fools. They'd spoil you.
Tarzan: Boy!
Jane Parker: I don't think you'd better look at me like that. You're awfully attractive. I love saying things to a man who can't understand. You don't even know what kisses are.
Tarzan: Love it!
Jane Parker: I dare say you would.

Jane Parker: Where are my boots?
[Tarzan is sitting on them so she can't leave]

Jane Parker: Alright. When you're quite finished, I'll put my boots on.
[Tarzan brushes the sole of her foot, causing her to squirm]
Jane Parker: Tarzan, you're tickling! Stop!
Tarzan: Love it?
Jane Parker: No such thing.
Tarzan: [Tarzan lets go of her foot and touches her face with the palm of his hand] Jane.
Jane Parker: [Jane touches his face with the palm of her hand] You can't get around me like that.
[Tarzan grabs her hand and compares it to his own]
Jane Parker: Yes, there's quite a difference, isn't there? You like that difference? You've never seen anyone like me before, have you?

Jane Parker: Tarzan, what am I doing here, alone with you? Perhaps I better not think too much about that. Just to be here, be happy, and I am happy. Not a bit afraid. Not a bit sorry. Oh, Tarzan, I wish I could make you understand. Perhaps I can, gradually. Come here.
[Puts her arms around Tarzan]
Jane Parker: What are we going to do about us?
Tarzan: Us?
Jane Parker: You and I?
Tarzan: You and I.

Tarzan: Baby strong. Call Elephant!
Jane: [laughs] Elephant? With a little nose like that?
Tarzan: Later call Elephant. Now call Boy!

Tarzan: Tarzan happy too.
Boy: [continues reading] Many of the soldiers in the hospital where I am working have just been brought home from Burma. And in addition to their wounds are suffering from jungle fever. Would be wonderful if you could send me some of the fever medicine which cured Boy when he was so ill, for I'm certain that it would help our soldiers, too. You'd do this for me, won't you Tarzan?
