Stuart Little 3: Call of the Wild (2005) Movie Script

Stuart, are you down there?
Yeah, Mom, I'm here.
Thank goodness.
You had me worried.
It's okay.
He's down in the basement.
- Have you finished packing yet?
- Yeah, Mom.
- Did you remember clean underpants?
- Yes.
- Well, we're leaving in...
- Five minutes.
I'll be right there.
Hey, Mr. Big Game Hunter... better take those batteries out
before you cook him.
Hey, Snowbell.
You all ready for our vacation?
You call spending the summer
in a cabin in the woods a vacation?
I call it cruel and unusual
Oh, come on.
Don't you hear the call of the wild?
Learning to live off the land,
exploring the woods.
Sleeping in the dirt,
no air conditioning, Lyme disease.
I hate to burst your bubble,
Daniel Boob, but it's dangerous there.
And the closest you've been
to the woods... the occasional whiff
of pine air freshener.
You sound just like Mom and Dad.
But I have instinctive, natural abilities.
I mean, after all,
I am somewhat like a mouse.
You're also somewhat
like a mental case.
This summer is gonna be
a real turning point.
I'm gonna prove to Mom and Dad...
...I don't need them
watching my every step.
I can take care of myself.
- I don't need to be told what to do.
- Stuart.
- It's a long drive. Did you go potty?
- Mom!
The whole neighborhood
will hear you.
I'm sure Davy Crockett's mother
asked him the very same question.
- Monty.
- Oh, man.
- I didn't believe it.
- Believe what?
Well, word in the alley is
you are going camping.
- Camping?
- Now you're gonna have to rough it...
...just like the rest of us,
Mr. Fancy Pants.
That's malicious slander.
- Well, then where are you going?
- Where? Well, to...
Where? Yes, we're going...
Oh, we're going to a fancy resort.
It's the Hartz Mountain
Resort and Spa.
Sounds nice.
It's paradise.
All-you-can-eat kibble buffet...
...whisker waxing,
pawdicure, tail grooming...
...24-hour Animal Planet.
Hey, can I come?
Can you co...? Yeah, well...
- I don't know.
- Oh, come on, can I come? Please?
Hey, it's not me, it's the Littles.
They don't exactly...
Oh, what am I trying to say here?
They don't like you.
Well, I guess I know
when I'm not wanted.
Actually, you don't.
But you're learning.
And I'll think of you
when I'm eating caviar for breakfast.
And I'll think of you when I'm...
- Like taking sardines from a kitten.
- Time to go, Snow.
Given a choice,
I'd rather be at the vet.
Come on, come on. Yes!
- Yes, yes, no, no.
- We're on our way.
We should be at the lake
in two hours, 34 minutes.
Well, I'm forgetting
about time altogether.
I have nothing
on my calendar all summer...
...but lazy days and carefree nights.
Hey, Mom, Dad?
I'm doing research
about Lake Garland.
There's a group there
called the Lake Scouts.
- That's good, son.
- I wanna join.
- That's not so good.
- But it's totally cool.
They go rock climbing,
boating, exploring.
- My, that sounds...
- Dangerous.
Oh, Mom, I'm not a baby.
I can handle it.
I don't know, Stuart.
Something could happen to you.
But I want something
to happen to me.
Stuart, sweetie, I have to put
my foot down and say...
It might do him some good.
I mean, I myself was a Lake Scout.
And a pretty darn good one too.
But he's too small.
Who will take care of him?
- Well, I will.
- Yeah.
- You mean...?
- What if I were there?
- Watching him every step of the way.
- Wait. That's not quite what l...
- Every step?
- Every step.
- And George can join too.
- No way.
I've got to get to level 38
by the end of the summer.
Now, George, it'll be a bonding
experience for us Little men.
Just testing your reflexes, dear.
And you passed.
- You'll watch him every minute?
- Every minute.
- But there are rules.
- What kind of rules?
Never wander off by yourself.
Never wander off with someone else.
No wandering, period.
Don't sit too close to the fire.
You'll burn yourself.
Don't sit too far away from the fire.
You'll catch a cold.
Insect repellent is a must.
Remember, mosquito's bite
is bacteria's delight.
I don't know why it has to be
The sky is blue and the grass is green
And I don't know why it's really true
That one plus one always equals two
I don't know so I have to guess
There may be times
When a no means yes
And maybe, just maybe
It doesn't really matter
Hey now look around
Does anybody know
What's going down
Hey now it's okay
The world keeps spinning anyway
Hey now why ask why
Low is low and high is high
Hey now just let go
It's all right if you really don't know
Yeah, and I really don't know
- It's going to need some sprucing up.
- I've seen cleaner litter boxes.
There goes my summer
with nothing to do.
Well, it is called "roughing it."
- A little too rough, if you ask me.
- You're a pioneer now, Snowbell.
- Get with the program.
- I don't like this program.
Where's the remote?
Nothing like the great outdoors, huh?
The great outdoors
should stay outdoors.
That's why they invented doors:
To keep the outdoors out.
Can't wait to become
a Lake Scout, huh, George?
Stuart, what's the cheat code
for infinite health?
Just in time. Thanks.
Come on, George,
get your head out of the game.
Look around you.
I mean, you want adventure?
You never know what you'll find
out here in the woods.
Well, hello, Diggity!
What have we here?
I mean, wouldn't you rather...?
Little help?
Wouldrt you rather feel
the wind in your face...
...than just sit here
punching buttons all day?
No, too many bugs.
What about all the stuff
we could learn?
How to protect yourself
against wild animals.
Or how to find your way home
if you get lost in the woods.
You can't get lost in the woods
if you never go into the woods.
Boy, you've got an answer
for everything.
- Yep.
- Look at it this way:
Scouting will teach you
how to stand on your own two feet.
- Gesundheit.
- Gesundheit.
How to take care of yourself.
How to be a man.
You know, Stuart, I'm just not into
this outdoorsy stuff like you are.
I mean, what will I get
out of the Lake Scouts?
Hi. I'm Brooke.
- Hi.
- Hello.
I'm Stuart, and this is
my brother, George.
You guys gonna join
the Lake Scouts?
I am, but I don't think
George wants to.
He's trying to get to level 38
on Cyberdon Rex.
Good luck without
the unlimited ammo code.
- Unlimited?
- X-X-Y-A-B-A-B-X.
Totally cool.
So whers that
Lake Scout signup? Tomorrow?
- Is that a cat?
- Nothing gets by this one.
You better be careful with him.
- Why's that?
- The Beast.
- The Beast?
- Yeah, the Beast.
They say it can hear you
from the other side of the forest.
And when it drinks from the lake,
the water drops a foot.
They say it can smell
a drop of blood five miles away.
So you better keep
your animals inside...
...because I hear
its favorite food is cats.
See you around, Stuart. George.
Boy, she's a piece of work.
She sure is.
Does she really expect us to believe
some crazy story about a beast?
I'll tell you one thing,
if there is a beast... wouldn't stand a chance
if I ran into it.
- I'd kick him. I'd tie it in a...
- Let me know how that works out.
- Snowbell, where are you going?
- To hide.
Before that Beast gets a whiff
of USDA Prime Snowbell.
Things werert bad enough.
Now I have to worry
about being eaten?
Is there someone there?
The Beast!
All right. Take me, you monster.
- Monty?
- You should've seen your face, pal.
- It was priceless.
- Glad to be a source of amusement.
- What are you doing here?
- I stowed away in the trunk.
So this is the fancy resort?
Resort? Right.
Well, it looked much better
in the brochure.
- I can't believe you lied to me.
- I didn't lie.
I merely distorted the truth to fit
the paradoxical reality of the situation.
At least you werert lying.
Well, I'm glad you came,
but now you have to leave.
Leave? All the way
back to New York?
- How am I supposed to get there?
- There's a new thing called "walking."
Oh, man. I don't even know
why we're friends.
All we ever do is fight.
Oh, no, I don't fight.
It's beneath me.
You, you're the fighter. But...
Wait a minute. You're the fighter.
Yeah, well, living on the streets,
you gotta be a fighter.
Rats and crows, street sweepers...
Hey, you know what, old buddy?
I changed my mind.
- Really? All right.
- Mi cabin es su cabin.
You can stay right here
under the porch...
...and keep an eye on things for me.
- What kind of things?
- You know.
Things that look odd,
or scary, or beastly.
Especially anything beastly.
I can't emphasize that enough.
And I will make sure
your stay with us is comfortable.
When you get hungry,
just tap on this pipe here...
...and I'll bring you food.
- Cool.
- Monty, I'm counting on you.
You'll be my first line of defense.
Hey, what do you mean,
"first line of defense"?
No, no. I said,
"Stay inside the fence."
"The fence." Right.
Right. But there isn't any fence.
I was speaking metaphorically.
I didn't know you spoke
another language.
- Goodnight, baby.
- Mom, I'm not a baby.
Look at them sleeping.
They've got nothing to worry about.
I, on the other hand,
have to find a place to hide.
Cottontail, my fine,
fuzzy, flop-haired fellow.
How's the kids? All 50 of them?
Okay, okay.
I'll talk to you later. Cool.
Beavie! Beave, hey!
- Man, am I glad to see you.
- Don't even ask.
Come on, Beave.
I'll pay you back.
That'll be a first.
If I don't come through,
I am Beast chow.
Talk to the paw.
It's because I'm a skunk, isn't it?
I guess you'll be asking me
to stand downwind next.
I'd like to ask him now.
If you ask me, somebody
should teach that Beast a lesson.
Just once, just once, I'd like
to show that two-bit tyrant...
...the business end of my tail,
know what I'm saying?
Give him some of this.
Hey, Beast,
I was just talking about you.
You are looking beautiful tonight.
There's another beast out there
going, "Where's my baby?"
Well, never let it be said
that Reeko comes empty-handed.
Okay, now, I know it doesn't look
like much, but believe me...
...there's a party inside this bark
and your taste buds are invited.
Or you could use it
as a fake moustache.
Oh, where did the Reeko go?
I'll go look for him.
You found me.
What do you say
I pay you double next full moon?
Okay? We're cool, right?
Yo, I am so sk...
Not good. Not good.
You never heard of closing the lid?
No swimming till four hours after
eating or three hours before eating.
- And no swimming while eating.
- Mom, I know the rules. I do.
I know. I'm sorry.
Just promise me you won't take
any unnecessary risks.
I promise.
- Let's go, George.
- Have fun, boys.
Don't worry about us, dear.
The Little men are completely
at home in the forest.
- Isn't there someone in charge here?
- That would be me.
- Do you know anything about knots?
- Is that the troopmaster?
Yeah, but he hasn't
really mastered the troops yet.
Oswald, a compass
is not a weapon.
I'm Frederick Little,
and these are my sons.
- Stuart.
- Hi!
And George.
Oh, yeah.
I'm Bicklemaster Troop.
- I mean, Troopmaster Bickle.
- Hey, Dad.
- Are you gonna ask?
- Of course, Stuart.
My boys were wondering
if they could join up.
- Why, sure.
- Yes.
Yes. Per article 17
of the Lake Scout Handbook...
...everyone is welcome.
- Yeah!
Great. And how about me?
Well, there's no rule against it...
...but don't you think
you're a little too big to be a scout?
Well, I had some sort
of assistant position in mind.
But really, do I look like
I need an assistant?
Okay, I admit it.
I'm in way over my head.
- Little, you've got the job.
- Great. How about a Scout shake?
No, I meant Scout handshake.
Okay, walk it, turn and up.
There you go.
Attention, scouts.
We'll start with
the skull assessment test.
I think that would be "skill."
Okay. Well, that's different then.
The exceptional scouts
will get to wear the gold kerchief.
The intermediates receive the blue.
And for those beginning
scouts who...
- Need extra help?
- Yeah.
The red shows up better
when they get lost.
Okay, you just need
to row your canoes...
...from the dock here,
over to the shore there.
This might be a problem.
I'm looking for how well
you control your craft.
Points will be taken off
for sinking and drowning.
Give this one a try, son.
Thanks, Dad.
Ready, set, go.
- Come on!
- You can do it!
What the heck was that?
Get out of here.
I'm being attacked by a shark!
Oh, no. Oh, dear, I'm going down.
Oh, this is it.
Goodbye, Mom and Dad and George
and Snowbell and Martha...
What are you talking about, Stuart?
Yes! I made it. How was my time?
- Could have been better.
- Good try.
I would have made it.
But there was this giant fish.
It was a shark.
And it was pulling me
all around the lake.
Didrt you see it?
Maybe it was
the Loch Ness Monster.
- Or Bigfoot.
- Bigfoot doesn't swim.
- He likes to be called Sasquatch.
- Whatever.
Sasquatch doesn't swim either.
Tonight, around this Lake Scout
campfire of burning logs...
...we honor you by awarding
these kerchiefs.
- Elwin.
- Go, Elwin. Yeah.
- Brooke.
- Yeah, Brooke.
- George.
- Well done, son. Just like a Little.
- Stuart.
- Yeah?
Sorry there, Stuart.
You stay red.
- Red?
- Maybe next time.
Congratulations, scouts.
Tough day, huh, Stuart?
Yeah. Toughest one ever.
You know, son, not everyone gets
a gold kerchief their first summer.
- Did you?
- Well, Stuart...
Well, okay, I did.
But the point is that
you try your best.
And that's what we Littles do.
It's only the beginning of summer.
You'll have plenty more
Don't worry.
I'm not gonna stay red for long.
Hey, Dad...
...I really love these talks.
- Nice shot.
- Aim. Aim.
I'm not afraid to fall
I've fallen many times
They laughed when I fell down
But I have dared to climb
Not afraid to fall
I know I'll fall again
But I will win this in the end
If I get up I might fall
Back down again
So let's get up
If I get up I might
Fall back down again
But we get up anyway
If I get up I might fall
Back down again
- Get up
- C'mon
- You can do it!
- Come on, Stuart!
If I get up then I might fall
If I get up then I might fall
If I get up then I might fall
We get up anyway
There you go. That's yours.
There you go. That's yours.
And yours.
Hey, Stuart. Shark!
- I'm just kidding.
- I got this one.
Your mother wouldn't be too happy
if I let you strain your back, would she?
But everybody's supposed
to carry something.
Don't wrinkle your nose, Stuart.
These little packages
pack quite a punch.
- I guess.
- Here, a chocolate for later.
All right, listen up.
One, two, three, eyes on me.
That's not all that's on him.
Okay, now remember, scouts,
if you get lost in these woods...'re pretty much a goner.
No, no. He's joking, kids.
If you get lost,
hug a tree until we find you.
Now, everyone should
pair up with a buddy.
No scout left behind.
Hi, wanna be buddies?
Hi. Hey.
Hey, buddy, you have nothing
to worry about.
I'll be right behind you.
I'll be walking in your footprints
the whole way.
I'll be like a shadow.
Wherever you go, I'll be there.
Hey, hey, wait up. Wait for me.
All right. Tight lines, everybody.
George, try looking up.
The graphics are much better.
Great resolution.
Eyes straight ahead, scouts.
Keep up, keep up now.
Hey, guys. I can't get across.
Don't worry. I'm okay.
No problem.
I'll catch up with you
around the next bend.
Dad. George.
Oh, dear.
A little bit of water
never hurt anybody.
I can handle this.
Well, if I get lost,
I'm supposed to hug a tree.
I didn't get lost, I got left.
Okay, okay, Stuart... wanted adventure,
here's your chance.
You just have to find
your own way back.
Okay, let's see.
The sun is there,
and we came from that way... the scouts must be...
No, wait. No, if they were there...
No, they were over there.
So I should be there.
But I'm not there, I'm here.
Where am I?
I don't know where I am.
Hey, can anyone hear me?
A good scout should
assess the situation.
Okay, okay, Stuart, calm down.
There's nothing out there.
Before you know it...'re gonna start believing there
really is a bloodthirsty, ferocious...
Hey, is somebody here?
- Beast!
- Beast? Where? No, no, please!
Me? Yeah, that's right.
I'm the Beast, believe that.
I'm big and I'm mean,
and I'm all sorts of scary. Yeah.
Actually, you're not as scary
as I thought you'd be.
Well, that's because
I'm not in a scary mood today.
Yeah, yeah, that's it.
In fact, what the heck,
I won't even eat you today.
- You won't?
- I'll just say:
- Yeah. This, on the other hand...
- Hey, wait a minute. That's mine.
- Oh, no, no, no. It was yours.
- That's mine.
Now it's the Beast's.
Who, remember
my little friend, is me.
It's the survival of the fittest, dude.
That's the way the Beast rolls.
Yo, something stinks.
And it's not me. The Beast!
- You're not the Beast, are you?
- You're quick, kid.
- You have better pickup than my car.
- You drive a car?
That was awesome.
Man, you were running and dodging
and swinging and sliding and...
Yeah, yeah, I recall some of that.
You are, like, the ultimate.
You are so cool.
Yo, I've been called
a lot of things, but never "cool."
Oh, yeah. I mean, that Beast
had nothing on you.
Yeah, it's true.
I don't sweat that Beast none.
I mean, frankly,
if you werert there, kid... and that Beast would've had
a throw down, a serious tussle.
And then, it would have been:
Face full of stink.
"Oh, no! Please, Reeko,
don't hit me there!"
Been like, "No, Beast."
"Please, Reeko!"
- Reeko?
- That's my name, kid.
- Reeko.
- Stuart. Stuart Little.
Nice to meet you,
Stuart, Stuart Little.
Listen up. This is a beehive.
You can tell by its pale coloring
it is abandoned.
Actually, I'm afraid
you're wrong on this one too.
Nonsense, Little. Watch.
I'm not sure I can.
You really know your way
around these woods.
Nothing goes down in this forest
without me knowing about it.
- What was that?
- How would I know?
It's a man being stung in the butt
by a million bees.
Obviously, I knew that.
In the butt.
Well, I guess I gotta get going.
Yeah. Yeah, me too.
Yeah, you know, I'm busy.
I got lots of friend stuff
to take care of.
Lots of friends.
I got folks coming over
and everything. I'm busy.
- Okay, I'll see you.
- Yep, later.
- Bye.
- I'm busy. Busy, busy...
It was beautiful.
Hey, Stuart.
George, I can explain.
That was kind of cool, huh?
Yeah, I never saw
anything like it.
Come on, let's go.
They didn't miss me at all.
And what else? I replaced
several shingles on the roof...
...changed the washers
in the faucets...
...and weather-stripped the windows.
- Really? You did all that today?
- And some painting.
And as I was plastering the wall,
I could see the electrical was shot.
So I replaced the wiring too.
What happened to
"lazy days and carefree nights"?
Right after I finish the gazebo.
- Gazebo?
- I drew up the plans this afternoon.
Nothing too extravagant.
Just big enough to hold
the picnic table I built.
- Well, as long as you're having fun.
- Oh, I am.
How about you boys?
Are you having fun with the Scouts?
It's a little hard.
My natural abilities
haven't exactly kicked in yet.
Do you have new friends
who could help you?
Actually, I do.
He's the best.
And he knows everything.
Reeko? Hey, Reeko?
Where are you?
Must not be here.
Yo, Stuart, my man.
You lost again?
Because look, I am not running
a daycare service here.
- I'm not lost. I was looking for you.
- Looking for me?
No one ever looks for me.
Do I owe you money?
Look, I need to earn
the gold kerchief.
It's a Scout thing.
I thought maybe you could teach me
all that cool stuff you do.
- Like climbing and tracking and...
- What?
You want me to teach you
the ins and outs, the ups and downs?
- What I have cannot be taught.
- I'll pay you.
Cannot be taught overnight.
Yo, little man, you want me to impart
All my knowledge upon you?
Listen very carefully
Check this out
So you wanna get down
And be like me?
Well, you got a long way to go
So you wanna be down
But it's clear to me
You need to hang
With your man Reeko
I got a Ph.D. In forestology
Yo, man, the woods are my hood
You're a beginner
You don't wanna be a dinner
If you stick with me, it's all good
Listen to Reeko
No one knows all that he knows
He's the skunk with the funk
That's me
- He's got savoir faire
- Coming out my derrire
- Because Reeko's...
- Funky
- He's so classy
- Sometimes gassy, but I don't care
- Because Reeko's...
- Funky
- I'm a bad brother skunk!
- Hold your nose
Say what?
I'm just talking about Reeko
So you wanna be a big man?
Put some bump in your jump
A glide in your stride
So you gotta be cool, man
When you hear...
You better be the first to hide
I know the hot spots
Where they got good grub
Man, you better listen to me
You like insects?
I love them bugs
Yo, I mean grubs, literally
Sing, girls
Listen to Reeko
No one knows all that he knows
He's the skunk with the funk
That's me
- He's got savoir faire
- Coming out my derrire
- Because Reeko's...
- Funky
- He's so classy
- Sometimes gassy, but yo, I don't care
- Because Reeko's...
- Funky
Being funky, hey that's my duty
Y'all move out the way
Stuart, move, man
I gotta move my booty
- Listen to Reeko
- Better listen to Reeko
No one knows all that he knows
He's the skunk with the funk
The smelly, smelly hunk
All this junk in my trunk
That's me
Thank you very much
You know, Reeko, I'm really having
a good time this summer.
- And I'm learning a lot.
- That's why you pay me.
Yeah, sure.
- Well, gotta go.
- Watch out for that.
Well, see you tomorrow, Reeko.
- Hey, Stuart.
- Yeah?
- You did good today, bro.
- Thanks, bro.
Hello. Hungry.
All right, all right.
I only have four legs.
That Monty's got some appetite.
Oh, no.
Snowbell, I'm sorry,
we're out of cat food.
Mr. Little will be back in an hour
with the groceries.
I've got to do something
about those pipes.
Hey, where you been?
I've been banging for 10 minutes.
Yes, well, there's a slight glitch
in room service.
The food won't be here
for an hour.
- Well, okay.
- I knew you'd understand.
I'll go find my own grub.
- Monty, what are you doing?
- I'm getting some grub.
- You want some?
- You can't go.
You don't know what's in that forest.
Squirrels, bunny rabbits,
a monkey or two.
No, no. There's a...
- Monkey?
- Yeah.
Cute, furry monkeys
live in the forest.
Everybody knows that.
I'll address that misconception
at a later date.
There is a Beast in that forest!
Yeah, right.
This from a guy who doesn't believe
in forest monkeys.
How could you be so selfish?
If you get ripped limb from limb,
who's gonna look out for me?
Dead cat walking.
You're looking pretty cocky
for someone in your situation.
That Beast's got nothing on me.
Guess we'll see tonight.
Boy, am I glad you're back.
I was so worried.
I thought for sure
you'd been eaten by the...
Yo, relax, powderpuff.
I'm here for Stuart. He around?
Stuart? And you know him how?
What do you mean, "how"?
What, you don't think
we could be friends?
- Reeko?
- Hey, Stuart. My man!
- Yo, I was just telling this dustmop...
- What are you doing here?
What do you mean,
what am I doing here, man?
You're embarrassed
to be seen with a skunk.
- No, I...
- Well, "No, l" what?
My parents don't exactly know
I've been sneaking off.
Oh, I get it.
Hey, listen, yo, I need a favor.
How about an advance
on the next lesson?
Could you scrounge
something up for me?
- Stuart!
- Oh, man. My parents.
I'll try to get what I can for you
right after dinner.
Look, dude, I got
better things to do...
...than to hang around under the porch
until you finish dinner.
No, I meant after you have
dinner with us.
No, no. Look, don't even tr...
For real?
And no lie?
You really want me to sit down
with your family?
Yo, and I thought you were...
I've never been invited
anywhere before.
This is big.
Mom, Dad, I want you
to meet my friend, Reeko.
A kitty cat.
Hello there, Reeko.
Glad to meet you.
Well, aren't you adorable?
Mom, I invited him for dinner.
Is that okay?
It's getting stuffy in here.
I think I'll open a window.
Thanks, Mom. Great dinner.
No. Like this.
Got it.
So, Stuart...
...where did you and Reeko meet?
- Where? Well...
- Maybe I should tell them.
Yeah, Reeko, you go ahead.
Well, it was like this.
I was just...
And then, look at him now.
Well, I guess that
just about covers it.
- Right, Stuart?
- Yep.
Yep, it sure does.
Okay, Reeko. Thanks for stopping by.
I'll see you tomorrow.
Okay, maybe I'll see you
tomorrow too.
I've got some food for you.
It's right over here.
I hope this is enough.
It'll have to do.
You know, Stu, you all right.
- Thanks.
- No, man. I really mean it.
You're the only one I ever met...
...that didn't run for the hills
the first time you saw me.
You didn't judge me,
and that goes a long way.
I tell you what,
next favor, it's on me.
Yeah. Well, keep it real, man.
I will.
Oh man, who am I kidding?
I owe the Beast way more.
That much food just doesn't
appear out of nowhere.
Slap my tail and call me stinky.
- Are you still here?
- No, I was just going off to the party.
- Party?
- Who told you about the party?
- You know what, Snowflake?
- It's Snowbell.
I'd love to get you in
but it's A list only.
- Very exclusive. You have to be cool.
- Well, I'm very good at charades.
That counts. It starts when the moon
rises in the clearing...
...just on the other side
of those trees.
No, forget it. There's a vicious,
cat-eating beast out there.
Oh, yeah. Right, right.
- You gonna believe that fairytale?
- What do you mean?
Cowbell, baby.
Did you ever see
this so-called Beast?
- No. Not exactly.
- Me either, kid. And I live out there.
Dude, you'd think I'd run across
this legendary Beast...
...once or twice, right?
- I guess.
And let me ask you, bro... you think all of the animals
would be getting together...
...getting their groove on at night,
in the woods...
...if this supposed Beast
actually existed?
Now that you mention it, that kid who
told us that story did look a little shifty.
Can I bring anything?
Just yourself. You are definitely
gonna add some flavor.
Now, remember,
tell them Reeko sent you.
And don't mention this to Stuart.
No dis, but he's not hip like you.
I do have sort of
a subtle hipness, don't I?
Don't worry, my lips are sealed.
At least until tonight.
Where's he going?
- Big man
- Big man
Big man on the block
Hello. I am Snowbell
of the Manattan Bells.
Big man
Reeko sent me.
- On the block
- Yeah, I'm the big man
- Big man
- Big man on the block
The big man on the block
Reeko sent me.
Do you enjoy charades?
I'm the man with the biggest walk
That's it. Walk right on in.
I hope the Beast likes take out.
Have no fear, the party is here.
Name's Snowbell.
Just in from the city.
New York City.
The big man on the block
Where are you?
They probably think
I'm crashing the party.
Hey, guys, it's all right.
I'm on the A list.
- He's on the menu.
- Reeko sent me.
They were probably the caterers.
It's the Mount Everest of edibles.
Time for this cat to pig out.
Now, this is what I call
a food pyramid.
All my favorite food groups are here.
Snowbell. Oh, dear.
Pizza, donuts. Oh, yeah.
Get out of there!
Top of the world, Ma!
Hang on, Snowbell. I'm coming!
I gotta go get help.
You're making a huge mistake.
I will give you such a hairball.
You'll hack and cough for weeks.
- Rise and shine.
- Good morning, boys.
Mom, Dad.
Snowbell and I were out in the woods,
and the Beast got him.
- Nightmare.
- Nightmare.
No, no, it's real.
We gotta save him.
- Sounds like quite a dream.
- But it wasrt a dream.
Come on downstairs
and have breakfast.
- What?
- I need your help.
You don't wanna eat me.
I taste terrible.
I should know,
I lick myself every day.
Don't speak.
Your fur is so soft.
It's not like the other animals
in the forest.
Theirs is coarse with burrs.
But yours is clean and silky.
Well, I do try my best
to take care of it.
Regular tongue baths
and good grooming.
I have different plans for you.
Madam, I had no idea.
I mean, it's not that you're
entirely unattractive.
And I'm not opposed
to a summer fling, per se.
- But I just don't think it would work out.
- I don't want you.
I want your fur.
Well, thank goodness, beca...
My fur?
For a rug.
It gets cold here in the winter.
Gee, as much as I'd love to help out
with your home decorating...
...I'm rather attached to my fur.
That won't be a problem much longer.
Wait, wait. Maybe you could...
...fatten me up for a while.
Yeah, you'd have a bigger rug.
More spacious.
You're right.
- What is this?
- Eat or be eaten.
Don't you have anything in a can?
Guys, guys. We need to organize
a search party right away.
- What happened?
- It's Snowbell. He's been kidnapped.
- Now, Stuart.
- You gotta believe me!
- Who took him?
- The Beast.
- The Beast?
- Oh, yeah.
- Oh, come on.
- Watch out behind you.
- Tell them, Brooke.
- Oh, Stuart.
That was just an old campfire story.
I was just messing with you.
The Beast isn't real.
Yeah, a phony, just like Stuart.
- Can't believe he fell for that.
- Loser.
I'm telling you the truth.
Snowbell's in big trouble.
Really? Was he taken by the shark?
Sorry, Stuart.
- Now what am I gonna do?
- Just forget about it.
He'll be back
once he gets hungry.
I gotta help Snowbell.
We're all living in a world so scary
Can you find a place to hide?
You come unraveled
When the bones are rattled
In the closet of your life
Will you fit tomorrow
When the shadows come to light?
It's never fun to be the only one
To keep us safe inside
Here I come to save the world
Enter hero of the day
Who's come to save the world
Dear George, I have gone
to the other side of the lake... save Snowbell from the Beast.
Please tell Mom and Dad
not to worry.
P.S. You were a good brother.
P.P.S. If I don't come back... can have my car.
- You wanna go around the lake again?
- Sure.
Hey, guys, wait for me.
Hi, George. Want to be
my buddy on the hike today?
- Sure.
- Sweet.
Need a hand?
Thanks for the hand.
No problem.
Reeko, where are you?
Yo, hey, Stuart.
What brings you here, man?
- The Beast took Snowbell.
- I'm sorry to hear that.
Wow, he was a great guy.
Let's take a moment of silence.
Okay, done.
I'm sure we'll all miss him.
Take care now.
- We gotta save him.
- That's nuts.
- Not if we do it together.
- Yo, now you are really talking crazy.
I'm staying as far away
from the Beast as I can.
But you said
you don't sweat the Beast.
Yeah, yeah, Stuart.
I said that. Listen carefully.
I was lying.
- Lying?
- Yeah, I do that.
I'm just a skunk.
A rotten, unpopular, smelly,
freeloading skunk.
Ask anyone, they'll tell you.
I'd never fight the Beast.
That was something I just said so,
you know...'d like me.
Well, I liked you anyway.
Reeko, I'm going.
With or without you.
Then I'd say it's without me.
Stuart. Wait up, will you?
Snowbell's history, man.
There's nothing you can
do for him now.
Stu, why don't you listen to me?
Because it's my fault.
I saw him, but I didn't
get to him in time.
Dude, you werert the one who sent
him straight into the jaws of the Beast.
Sent him? Wait a minute.
What do you mean, "sent him"?
Listen, Stu...
...I can explain.
And I thought you were my friend.
Why would you do that?
It's complicated.
The Beast is a cruel,
heartless monster.
She doesn't care about
anybody but herself.
Then you two must have
a lot in common.
Stu, slow down.
Slow down and think
about what you're doing.
It's too risky, man.
When it comes to friends,
sometimes you gotta take a risk.
- Kid's got a point.
- What y'all looking at?
Any of you wanna join him?
I didn't think so.
- Come on.
- You can do it.
- Come on.
- You can do it.
- Pull!
- Pull!
- Bee.
- Bee! Bee!
Man, Elwin. You rock.
Come on, scouts.
Time to scrub the toilets.
Who's excited?
Hold it.
And what do you have
to say about this?
Scouts do not litter.
Remember, take only memories,
leave only footprints.
That's really high.
Hey, you up there.
Can't we talk this over?
You don't have to kill me.
I'll be a good rug.
I'll just lie real flat.
- I won't move a muscle all winter.
- Pathetic.
- Little high, Little low.
- Little hey, Little ho.
Honey, please.
Not in front of the scouts.
Diminishes my authority.
- Be careful. You'll lose that.
- Hey, where's Stuart?
I thought he was with you.
Now, sweetie, I'm sure
he's perfectly safe.
- Stuart!
- Stuart!
- Stuart, are you here? Stuart!
- Stuart, where are you?
I'd know that sound anywhere.
Snowbell, are you all right?
- Snowbell?
- I'm so delirious, I'm hearing voices.
Great, now I'm hallucinating.
Snowbell, step through the loop.
Well, at least I conjured up
a mirage with a plan.
- Am I glad to see you.
- You look like my friend Stuart.
Only much braver
and better-Iooking.
- I will call you Larry.
- Snap out of it.
Stuart? It is you.
What are you doing here?
And what have you done
with Larry? Larry! Larry!
Come on, we gotta get out of here.
- Son, are you in there?
- Stuart!
- Stuart!
- I can't find him.
Stuart, where are you?
Stuart, honey.
- I haven't seen him.
- Oh, no.
- Stuart's gone into the forest alone.
- Listen up.
We gotta take this search party
to the other side of the lake.
Now, now, hold on a second.
Isn't this a bit much?
If you ask me, I'd say your boy is
just looking for a little attention.
What's that supposed to mean?
First, we had the shark
in the lake story.
Now, it's a beast in the woods story.
What's next here? Sasquatch?
Let's get one thing straight.
If my son says
there's a beast out there...
...then, by golly,
there's a beast out there.
Yeah. My brother's not a liar.
- What about "no scout left behind"?
- Yeah. She's right.
- Come on, Stuart's one of us.
- Okay, all right.
Well, I guess it'll give me a chance
to try out my new GPS.
Why am I seeing killer robots
in lava fields?
Okay, listen.
Scouts, my boy is lost in the woods.
We're wasting time.
You there, you go with Mr. Little.
This group, come with me.
Fan out and cover as much
ground as possible.
- I love it when she does that. Let's go.
- Come on.
The Beast is sleeping out there.
- She must've left.
- And I say good riddance.
What a nut job.
Do you know what she wanted
to do with my fur?
I'm reporting her to PETA.
I don't think so.
I need you here.
He really ties the cave together.
Let him go or I'll let you have it.
- I'm shaking.
- I warned you.
Packs quite a punch.
Great form, top-notch execution,
but too much splash upon entry.
Overall, I give a 9.5.
- Let's get out of here.
- I'm right behind you.
Stuart wasrt making it up.
Well, you know, that might not
have been an animal roar at all.
It could easily have been
some kind of avalanche.
Does that look like an avalanche?
- He's a goner.
- Poor Stuart.
- Poor guy.
- He's a goner.
Stuart, buddy, you were my first
real friend, and I did you wrong.
Is that Reeko actually thinking
about someone else for a change?
Yeah. Yeah, Stuart had
the right idea.
I should've had the courage to
stand up to the Beast a long time ago.
Maybe none of it would've happened.
I know there isn't one of y'all here...
...that I haven't begged, borrowed
or mooched from.
Rabbit, that thing with your carrots,
I didn't know you needed them to see.
And, Beaver, about the overbite jokes,
I'm sorry.
But, guys, look, maybe together
we have a chance.
I don't know about y'all, but I'm sick
and tired of living in fear of that Beast.
It's time that we got together
and we did something, y'all.
Who's with me here?
- Sounds good, but...
- You know, it's just too risky.
This little dude once told me
that when it comes to friends...
...sometimes you got to take a risk.
I'm gonna go save my friend.
With or without y'all.
- Don't go!
- You'll never be able... fight the Beast yourself.
The Beast is catching up.
Snowbell, I got a plan...
...but I can't do it without you.
I don't know how much
I got left in me.
- Is your heart still beating?
- A little.
Good. Because we need to start
pulling roots, leaves and branches.
We're landscaping?
Forgive me if I'm not overwhelmed
with confidence.
We give up. You win.
Oh, come on.
Don't give up the chase just yet.
- I was having such fun.
- We can't run anymore.
It's true. Look at me.
I'm in no condition for this.
- A trap?
- Oh, no.
But not clever enough.
All right, lady, don't make me
get tough with...
So I'm trying to decide.
Should I eat you in one bite,
or should I knock you around first?
You know how we cats
like to play with our food.
Yo, Beast.
Back it up.
- You came.
- That's right, little man.
Yo, Beast, you wanna eat them...'re gonna have to go
through me first.
Ridiculous. You're so small.
- How could you possibly stop me?
- He's got backup.
- I'm with Reeko.
- Me too.
- Me too.
- You're not so scary now, are you?
- Yeah, look at you.
- Come on, everybody.
What's the matter, kitty cat?
Scared of a little old skunk?
You wouldn't.
Talk to the butt.
Squirrel, go. Beave, go.
- Here, kitty, kitty.
- You need to pack that.
- Hey, stink face.
- I can smell you, can you smell me?
Hey, Beast. I'm over here.
Hey, Beast. I'm over here.
Look at Stuart.
Your decorating days are done.
Yeah, you did it!
- Where's Stuart?
- He was here a second ago.
- I just saw him.
- Where is he?
Need a hand?
- Stuart.
- Stuart.
- Stuart.
- Hey, over here.
- Stuart! Wow, awesome.
- Nice!
Stuart, honey,
get away from the Beast.
Oh, Mom, she can't
hurt anyone now.
Or ever again,
thanks to my man, Stuart.
Ranger One inbound to the zoo.
We got a stinker here.
We're gonna have
to dart it and shave it.
This one needs a bath.
Congratulations, son.
You've earned that gold kerchief.
You've made me troud
to be your poopmaster.
- Hey, little guy.
- All right!
Can I be your buddy next summer?
And I'd like to apologize
for ever doubting Stuart.
- He's quite extraordinary.
- That's our boy.
- No, that's our little man.
- Oh, Mom.
- Monty, is that you?
- Yep, in the flesh.
I thought the Beast got you.
Where have you been all summer?
Just over the hill.
It was everything
you said it would be.
- What are you talking about?
- The Hartz Mountain Resort and Spa.
Awesome. Massage, food,
pampering. It was heaven.
- Lf it was so good, why'd you leave?
- Well, it closed for the season.
Well, gotta go hide.
Hope I still fit.
I'm gonna miss you, George.
- You won't forget me, will you?
- No way.
Here, I want you to have this.
And if you need any help,
I know all the shortcuts to every level.
You can call me at this number
or text message me at this one.
And that's my email address,
my website... user name and password.
Well, I only have one thing for you.
So you out of here, huh?
I just wanted to thank you
for everything.
This summer turned out
even better than I hoped.
- Reeko, coming tonight?
- Can't start without you.
Looks like you got a few friends
to keep you company.
Yeah. Funny thing, though.
I always thought they didn't want me
around because I was a skunk.
Well, you know, it turns out they didn't
want me around because I was a jerk.
But all that's changed,
thanks to you, little man.
Glad I could help.
- Stuart, time to go.
- Come on, honey.
Yeah, okay. I'll be right there.
Yo, you take care.
You too.
Hey, Stuart.
I'm gonna miss you, bro.
I'm gonna miss you too.
So you wanna get down
And be like me
Well, you got a long way to go
So you wanna be down
But it's clear to me
You need to hang
With your man Reeko
I got a Ph.D. In forestology
Yo, man, the woods are my hood
You're a beginner
You don't wanna be a dinner
If you stick with me it's all good
Listen to Reeko
No one know all that he knows
He's the skunk with the funk
That's me
- He's got savoir faire
- Coming out my derrire
- Because Reeko's...
- Funky
- He's so classy
- Sometimes gassy, but I don't care
- Because Reeko's...
- Funky
- I'm a bad brother skunk!
- Hold your nose
Say what?
I'm just talking about Reeko
So you wanna be a big man?
Put some bump in your jump
A glide in your stride
So you gotta be cool, man
When you hear...
You better be the first to hide
I know the hot spots
Where they got good grub
Man, you better listen to me
You like insects?
I love them bugs
Yo, I mean grubs, literally
Sing girls
Listen to Reeko
No one knows all that he knows
He's the skunk with the funk
That's me
- He's got savoir faire
- Coming out my derrire
- Because Reeko's...
- Funky
- He's so classy
- Sometimes gassy, but yo, I don't care
- Because Reeko's...
- Funky
Being funky, hey that's my duty
Y'all move out the way
Stuart, move, man
I gotta move my booty
Watch me
Watch out for the tail, now
Just watch me
Just make it skunky
Can I take it to the bridge?
Can I take it to the bridge?
Stuart, you are so square
Come on, girls
Listen to Reeko
No one knows all that he knows
Don't suppose that your nose knows
More than Reeko, the pro's nose
- So just listen to Reeko
- Better listen to Reeko
No one knows all that he knows
He's the skunk with the funk
He's a smelly, smelly hunk
All this junk in my trunk
That's me
Thank you very much
If your head keeps spinning
Because someone else is winning
And you lost
In a game of chance
Where every time you make
A little decision
It's like nuclear fission
Life explodes right in your lap
Now's the time to stop
Look around
Get both feet on the ground
Dig the view
Take your foot off the gas
You're moving way too fast
You don't need to worry
Slow down, hey what's the hurry?
Take your time, baby
Just relax
And don't look back
Forget about tomorrow
Right now is where it's at
And don't you know
That you are right on track
And time is only borrowed
And you know wherever
You are
Is where it's at
