KAA I know what you are. I know how you got here.

BALOO Kid, that’s not a song. That’s propaganda. (About the law of the jungle)

BALOO The things I saw you do today. I’ve never seen that before. MOWGLI That was me using my tricks. It’s not the wolf way. BALOO Who cares about the elf way? That’s the Mogly way. The Baloo way.

Mogly helps the bear and the elephants with his tricks.

MOGLY I’m not afraid of you. I’m done running from you.
