    • TRIVIA (7)

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Pumbaa: Are you sure you did the right thing and returned the money, Timon?
        Timon: Of course I did, Pumbaa. That's why they gave me such a big reward.
        Pumbaa: But this looks like exactly $1,290,000 worth of stuff.
        Timon: Isn't that ironic? That was the exact amount of the reward!

      • Pumbaa: Wait a minute!
        Timon: Which is probably the amount of time we have left to live.

      • Pumbaa: He's gonna hurt us, Timon! You've got to do something!
        Timon: What do you want me to do? Dress in drag and do the hula?
        Pumbaa: I don't think that would work in this kind of situation, Timon.


      • Quint: You, Santa Claus, want to give me, Criminal Quint, Christmas presents?
        Timon: (dressed as Santa Claus) Oh yes, I've checked my list twice, and you've been an extra good criminal this year. Therefore, you deserve a lot of presents.
        Quint: But it's the middle of June!
        Timon: Is it? (looks at a calendar) Oh, you're right! It is! Well then, I guess I'll have to take these presents back then. Can't be giving them away early.

      • Quint: (referring to a plunger) What is it?
        Timon: (in a tall uniform) It is a toilet plunger. You know, to steal all that money people throw down the drain. And it can be yours for the low low introductory this-week-only price of uh...$1,290,000.
        Pumbaa: ...in unmarked bills. (Timon kicks him) I mean, not in unmarked bills! (Timon kicks him again) Ow! I mean, I didn't say anything!
        Timon: Uh...my stomach can talk?

      • Timon: (reading a newspaper article) "Criminal Quint, the most wanted criminal east of Alcatraz, has stolen a suitcase full of money?"
        Pumbaa: We'd better go right to the police, tell them what happened, and say to them everything we know! That would be the right thing to do.
        Timon: What gives you that idea?
        Pumbaa: Diddn't you read the rest of the article?
        Timon: (reading) "If you know anything about this, please go right to the police and tell them what happened and say to them everything you know. That would be the right thing to do." Pumbaa, we can't go to the police.
        Pumbaa: Why not?
        Timon: We found the money, right? Then we gave it back to Criminal Quint, correct? That makes us accompaniasts!
        Pumbaa: It does?
        Timon: Yes, it does! And that means we'll have to go to jail and call each other Butch and wear those stripy jail clothes!
        Pumbaa: Stripes make me look pudgy! And don't call me Butch.

      • Pumbaa: Timon, aren't you glad we got $1?
        Timon: Well, of course I am, Pumbaa. See my big glad smile? Eeeee!

      • Criminal Quint: So long, suckers!...I mean, citizens.

      • Pumbaa: Say, what's all that?
        Timon: This? It's really nothing. I mean, it's certainly not a bunch of money, that's for sure.
        Pumbaa: Gee, it looked to me like exactly $1,290,000 in unmarked bills.
