[Last lines, Wilbur is still at Marahute's nest]

Wilbur: Help! Anybody! Bernard! Bianca! Where are you? Okay, that's it. I'm outta here. This is ridiculous. You can't leave me here alone. I'm gone. I am gone!

[the eggs start hatching]

Wilbur: Oh, no. Stay in those eggs! That's a direct order. Hey, you're kind of a cute little feller. Cootchie cootchie coo...

Miss Bianca: Oh, Captain. Is this a non-stop flight to Australia?

Wilbur: Well, uh, not exactly. No. I can definitely say no. We're gonna have to make connections with a bigger bird. Non-stop? Who do I look like, Charles Lindbergh?

[Joanna, with an egg in her shut mouth, shakes her head no]

McLeach: Open your mouth.

[Joanna opens her mouth, moving the egg on her tongue to the side and hiding it from McLeach's view]

McLeach: [Catches Joanna stealing his eggs] Got your hand caught in the cookie jar, didn't ya? Who do you think you're messin' with, you dumb animal? My mental facilities are twice what yours are, ya pea brain!

[Opens the box to find it empty; Joanna hides]

McLeach: Joanna. I give you platypus eggs, I give you snake eggs, why, I'll even give you eagle eggs, but you stay away from MY... The eagle's eggs! That's it! That's the boy's weak spot.

McLeach: [McLeach is sharpening several knives. Cody sits tied up in front of a map] Let's see if we can't refresh that rusty old memory of yours. Is she on Satan's Ridge?

[He throws one knife and it sticks on the map under lettering that says "Satan's Ridge"]

McLeach: Or Nightmare Canyon?

[He tosses another knife, again with perfect accuracy]

McLeach: What do you think Joanna?

[Joanna breaks an animal cracker in half]

McLeach: Yeah, that's it. Right smack dab in the middle of that Croc Falls, ZAP!

[This time the knife comes dangerously close to Cody's head]

McLeach: Am I getting warm?

Cody: I told you I don't remember!

[He starts walking towards Cody carrying a fourth knife]

McLeach: Don't realize that a bird that size is worth a fortune!

[McLeach stabs the wall]

McLeach: I'll split the money with ya fifty-fifty. You can't get a better offer than that boy.

Cody: You won't have ANY money when the rRngers get through with you!

[McLeach walks across the room growling the whole way. He kicks over a pot of boiling water]

Jake: So, um, which way are taking, uh, Suicide Trail through Nightmare Canyon, or the shortcut at Satan's Ridge?

Bernard: Su-Suicide Trail?

Jake: Good choice. More snakes, but less quicksand. Then once you cross Bloodworm Creek, you're scot free, that is until, um... Dead Dingo Pass.

Bernard: [sees that the map has nothing but landscapings] Wa-wa-wait a minute, I don't-I don't see any-any of that-that stuff on the map.

Cody: There must be a way out of here.

Krebbs: Oh, there's a way out, all right.

RedFrank: There is?

Krebbs: [to Red] Absolutely! YOU'LL go as a wallet,

[to platypus]

Krebbs: YOU'LL go as a belt, and our dear Frank...

Frank: No, no, no! I don't want to hear it!

Krebbs: Frank will go as...

Frank: I can't hear you!

[covers ears while singing nonsense; stops to see if Krebbs is done]

Krebbs: A purse.

Frank: Oh, no!

Krebbs: Oh, a lovely lady's purse.

Frank: I don't want to go as a purse! Please, please don't let him do it!

Miss Bianca: [whilst Wilbur drinks from a can of cream soda] We must leave tonight.

Wilbur: [spit takes] Tonight?

[coughs; laughs]

Wilbur: Come on. You're kiddin' me, right?

[laughs; opens his window]

Wilbur: Have ya looked outside? It's suicide out there!

[laughs; closes window]

Wilbur: Oh, no. Ohhhhhhh, no! I'm afraid your jolly little holiday will have to wait.

[laughs]

Wilbur: What a bunch of jokers!

Miss Bianca: But you don't understand. A boy needs our help. He's in trouble!

Wilbur: Boy? You mean, little kid kinda boy?

Miss Bianca: He was kidnapped!

Wilbur: Kidnapped? Oh! That-that's awful! Lockin' up a little kid. Kids should be free! Free to run wild through the house on Saturday mornings, free to have cookies and milk, and get those little white mustaches, you know?

[lividly]

Wilbur: Nobody's gonna take a kid's freedom away while I'm around! Nobody ain't! Hear me?

Miss Bianca: Does that mean you'll take us?

Wilbur: Storm or no storm, Albatross Airlines...

[salutes]

Wilbur: at your service!

McLeach: Well, Joanna what'd we get today? A dingo, a fat old razorback or a nice big... boy?

[He pauses for a moment and then kicks Joanna in the side]

McLeach: Joanna, you been out here digging holes again? Dumb lizard's always trying to bury squirrels out here.

Cody: Uh-uh. It's a trap, and poaching's against the law.

McLeach: Trap? Now where'd you get an idea like that, boy; I think you've been down in that hole too long.

McLeach: [singing] You get a line, I'll get a pole, matey./You get a line, I'll get a pole, friend./You get a line, I'll get a pole,/We'll go fishing in a crocodile hole,/Buddy, pal o'mine.

McLeach: [pondering to himself while Joanna sneaks away his eggs in several ways] Let's see. The boy's got the eagle. I want the eagle. The boy won't give me the eagle. If I could just find the boy's weak spot, I could get him to tell me where the eagle is. But, the boy's only got one weak spot and that is the eagle. Maybe if I stuck him in a giant anthill, it'll loosen his tongue and then...

[smashes the egg box's top down on Joanna's fingers]

McLeach: I GOTCHA!

McLeach: It's all over, boy. Your bird's dead. Someone shot her. Shot her, right out of the sky. Bang!

Cody: No!

McLeach: What do you mean no? You calling me a liar? I heard it on the radio this morning, and she could have been mine if it wasn't for you. Now you better get out of here before I change my mind. G'on, git!

Bernard: Why is he letting him go?

Jake: It's gotta be a trick.

McLeach: Too bad about those eggs, eh, Joanna? They won't survive without their mother. Oh, well. Survival of the fittest, I guess.

[Cody runs off]

McLeach: Bingo.

McLeach: [faking fear] Oh, no! Not the Rangers. What'll I do? What'll I do? Don't let your ma call the Rangers, please!

Jake: Nice bluff, Miss B.

Miss BiancaJake: I wasn't bluffing. You don't know Bernard like I do. He'll never give up.

Doctor: I've already missed tea, Mr. Albatross. Don't force me to take drastic measures. You must relax.

Wilbur: Relax? I have never been more relaxed in my life! If I were any more relaxed, I'd be dead!

Doctor: I'm not convinced. 60 milligrams!

Nurse Mouse: 60 milligrams!

[Loads a syringe of tranquilizer onto a shotgun]

Wilbur: What? Are you guys crazy? You can't do this to me! I'm an American citizen, buddy!

Doctor: Better double it.

Wilbur: Double?

Nurse Mouse: Double, coming up!

[Loads a second syringe]

Wilbur: No!

Doctor: Prepare the patient for medication.

Wilbur: This can't be happening! I must be dreaming! Come on, Wilbur, wake up! Come on!

Doctor: Three degrees right!

Nurse Mouse: Three degrees right!

Doctor: Down two degrees!

Wilbur: No! Don't go down two degrees!

Nurse Mouse: Down two degrees!

Doctor: Ready...

Wilbur: No, I'm not ready!

Doctor: Aim...

Bernard: The kidnapper took the boy and Jake... and Miss Bianca.

Wilbur: Miss Bianca? Miss Bianca's in trouble? Oh, no! That's terrible! We gotta do something. I'm very disappointed in you, Bernard. Hiding under a nest while Bianca's in danger. Let me tell you something, buddy!

Bernard: Wilbur...

Wilbur: You-you-you start searchin' the desert for, and I-I-I'll scan the coastline. Yeah, that's what I'll do.

Bernard: Wilbur...

Wilbur: I'll ask the chicks on the beach to...

Bernard: Listen. There are some chicks here that need your help.

Wilbur: Really?

[Bernard sits on Marahute's eggs]

Wilbur: Oh, no! Wait a minute. I know what you're thinking, and you're wrong. Don't even- No! Don't look at me like that. You're getting no from me! No! I will not ever sit on those eggs!

[Cut to Wilbur sitting on eggs]

Bernard: [Thinking of his marriage proposal] Bianca, there's something I need to talk to you about...

Miss Bianca: [Unaware of Bernard's plan to propose, she speaks about the upcoming mission] It's all right, Bernard. I already know what you are going to say. Francois told me all about it.

Bernard: Francois? But how did he know?

Miss Bianca: It doesn't matter. I think it's a wonderful idea.

Bernard: You do? You mean, you really want to?

Miss Bianca: I don't think it's a matter of wanting, but a matter of duty.

Bernard: Du-duty? Well, I never thought of it... Well, okay, how does... next April sound?

Miss Bianca: Heavens, no! We must act immediately, tonight!

Bernard: To-tonight? But Bianca, this is so sudden, I mean... don't you at least need... a gown or something?

Miss Bianca: No, just a couple of khaki shorts and some hiking boots.

Jake: Finch, wren, scrub bird, lorikeet, freckled duck, galah, kookaburra, parrot, cockatoo, albatro...

[reacts at its size]

Jake: Alb-Albatross? It-It's a jumbo!

[turns to microphone]

Wilbur: Not long enough? Look, pal! I can land this thing on a dime!

Bernard: Uh, Wilbur, if the runway isn't long enough...

Wilbur: Listen! You can't let these radar jockeys push you around! Just leave it to me, all right?
