[from trailer]
King Louie: You're the man-cub who wants to stay in the jungle.
Mowgli: How do you know that?
King Louie: Kid, I got ears. My ears got ears. Only I can protect you.

King Louie: No one leaves!

King Louie: Seize him!

King Louie: Now you are a man cub who wants to live in the jungle.
Mowgli: How do you know that?
King Louie: Kid, I got ears. You wanna live here? You need people to protect you. Only I can protect you.

King Louie: [singing] Now you might think it's ridiculous/ That me, a gigantipithicus/ Would ever dream, I'd like to team/ With the likes of you, man-cub/ But together, we'd have powers/ All the jungle's treasures, ours/ I got desire, you got the fire/ But the dream I dream takes two. So, ooh, I wanna be like you/ I wanna use that flame just the same/ You can do/ Oh, how magnificus it would be/ A gigantipithicus like me/ Could learn to do like you humans do/ Can learn to be like someone like you/ Can learn to be like someone like me.

King Louie: You know who I am?
Mowgli: No.
King Louie: I am the king of the bander log. Call me Louie.

King Louie: Akela? Oh you didn't hear. Shere Khan killed him. Must've been on account of you.
Mowgli: No! You're lying!

King Louie: Just one thing we need to reach our full potential, bring me the red flower.Then we will rule this jungle and i will protect you. And you will want for nothing ever again.
