Tarzan II (2005) Movie Script

It's the Zugor!
The Monster?
Hey, hey, hey!
No fair catching a ride.
Hello? What do you
think you're doing?
Whatever it is,
you sure ain't doing it too good.
Is it still coming?
Hey, wait a minute.
There's no such thing
as the Zugor.
He's nothing but
an imaginary figment.
Terk was pretending so
I could practice running for my life.
I'm too slow.
If I don't get faster,
something terrible
is gonna get me.
You're the worst ape ever.
If the Zugor ever did come down
from Dark Mountain,
- you'd be digested by now.
- I bet I could catch you.
- Could not.
- Roar!
- Missed me.
- Roar!
Missed again.
It's sad, really.
This is a prescription
for disaster.
Oh, the power to be strong
And the wisdom to be wise
All these things
will come to you in time
On this journey
that you're making
It's you who'll reach the peak
Son of Man, look to the sky
Lift your spirit
Set it free
Someday you'll
walk tall with pride
Son of Man
A man in time you'll be
Come on, you can make it.
You can make it.
You can make it.
Yay-oh, yay-oh
Son of Man, look to the sky
Watch out!
Someday you'll walk
tall and proud
Tree! Tree! Tree!
Son of Man's a man
for all to see
- Are you all right?
- Are you hurt? Let me see.
What is the matter with you?
He's only a baby.
I don't want you
playing with that one.
He's going to get
somebody hurt.
- Poor Kala. He's a menace.
- To all of us.
Nice. Almost wiped out
half the family.
It's Elephant Falls
all over again.
Ooh, I can just hear Kerchak.
"You almost killed someone."
"He's only a child.
He'll learn."
"He'll never survive
in the jungle.
He can't run,
he can't climb.
He's a danger to us all.
Now, I think I'll grunt
Hey, pal.
You know I'm kidding, right?
I wasn't making fun of you.
I was making fun of Kerchak.
Come on, time for bed.
Let's see now...
There. How's that? Comfy?
It's great, Mom.
I've got your nose.
- I've got your toes.
- Mom, stop.
I'm too big
for "nose and toes."
Uh-oh. I think one is missing.
Maybe you're hiding it in...
- Mom, stop.
Stop. No, really...
Mom, stop it.
Tarzan, what's wrong?
- Tarzan?
- I'm not a good ape.
I can't outrun the Zugor.
The Zugor?
You know there's no such thing.
That's just an old ghost story.
But if he was real,
he'd get me.
I'm too slow.
I'll tell you what.
If the Zugor ever comes for you,
I'll save you.
You can count on it.
But, then you'd be in danger
because of me.
Everyone would be better off
if I just wasn't around.
Come with me.
I want to show you something.
This tree used to stand here
all by itself.
What happened to it?
One day there was a big storm,
and the wind pulled on the tree,
until finally it blew over.
But now, look over here.
This is the strongest tree
in the jungle,
because it has many trunks,
all working together,
lifting the leaves into the sky.
And look, the trunks
are all different.
Some are thin, some thick,
- some twisted, some straight.
- That one looks fat.
It does, doesn't it?
But they all help
make the tree strong,
strong enough
to weather any storm.
Like a family.
- Like our family?
- That's right.
You need your family, Tarzan,
and your family needs you.
- Nobody needs me.
- I do.
And I always will.
Now, where is that missing toe?
Mom, I've got all my toes.
No, I don't think so.
Maybe it's here. Or here...
Mom, stop.
Look out for
the big scary teeth.
Run! Run! It's the Zugor!
Quit playing around, Tarzan.
So, what are we waiting for?
- Tarzan!
- Mom!
Where is everybody?
Mom, where are you?
I'm sorry, Kala.
He was there.
I almost had him.
And then he was... No.
There is nothing
you could have done.
I would have done anything.
I would have given my life for his.
Poor Kala. It was horrible.
He almost got her killed too.
I hate to say it, but she's
probably better off without him.
I think we all are.
Can someone tell me
where I belong
Where I should go?
Can someone show me
where I'm going wrong?
I need to know
Why do I hurt the ones I love
With everything I do?
If I can't be what they want of me
Then what am I to do?
- I can't go home
- I can't go home
- Oh, this much I know
- This much I know
It might be better
if I just disappear
- I've got to find my way
- Got to find my way
And I will survive some way
I will survive some way
If only there was a place
where I could be
Just me
If only there was a place
where I could be
Just me
- Huh?
- Look what I got. It's a little bird.
- But I'm not a bird.
- Kago, look what I got.
- A little bird.
- Huh?
Can't you see I was
enjoying myself? I ought to...
- Wait a second.
- Hey!
- Uto, that's not a bird.
- So not.
It hasn't got any feathers,
banana brain.
Is too, and I can prove it.
We'll throw it off a cliff
and when it flies,
then you'll be the banana brain.
Don't poke me.
Don't poke me!
Don't poke me! Don't poke me!
Stop! Stop!
Stop laughing!
I like it when my brother
gets hiccups.
It's hilarious.
That's it.
I'm taking you down.
- Hi, Ma.
- Hello, Mother.
My darling boys,
my little treasures,
what has Mama Gunda
told you about fighting?
- But he was poking me.
- He was calling me banana brain.
Fighting each other
makes Mama...
...very unhappy!
Do we understand Mama?
Yes, ma'am.
What is all this silliness
about a baby bird?
I'm not a bird. I'm an ape.
- An ape!
- Like you.
Can we still
throw it off a cliff?
If you are an ape,
where's your family?
How did you get here?
You must have come
through that rift.
It's the only way in.
Besides falling in.
I tripped. I was trying
to get away from the monster.
- We all were, dear.
- Monster?
It guards the rift,
just waiting.
And if it catches you,
they say it'll eat you.
They call it...
- Don't say it, Ma.
- I'm not listening.
I don't hear this.
...the Zugor.
But there's no such thing
as the...
It's coming.
The Zugor!
It's the Zugor!
Run, it's the Zugor!
My tree. Stay out.
- But you've gotta let me...
- No. Go away.
- Please!
- No.
If I stay out here
the Zugor might get me.
Boo-hoo for you.
You've got to help me.
You've got to.
Okay, my babies.
There we go, climb in.
It's been another big day
for my two little boys, hasn't it?
The Zugor scared us, Ma.
Oh, I know, dear.
- Didn't scare me.
- Did too.
- Did not.
- Did too.
Did not.
- Ma?
- Yes, dear?
- Tell us a story.
- All right.
If I tell you a story,
will you go to sleep for Mama?
Yes, ma'am.
Well, then, let's see.
All right. Once upon a time,
there was a family of three...
...oh, I don't know, three...
- Silly little froggies?
- All right, dear.
Once upon a time, there was
a family of three little frogs.
One of them
was a tiny bit dim...
- Which one?
- One was a teensy bit violent.
I like that one.
And some might say
the mama was just a tad controlling...
...but I disagree.
Do alligators eat the frogs?
Oh, no. Don't let
the froggies get eaten.
Have them fly away.
It's all right, Uto.
They don't get eaten.
But the three little frogs
were all alone
in a great big world,
hopping from pond to pond.
Just trying to find somewhere
where they'd be wanted.
But every place they went,
they were kicked out.
Maybe the frogs need
to smash some heads, Ma!
The frogs ended up
in a horrible valley,
terrorized by a monster,
with next to nothing
to eat or drink
and only pointy rocks
to sleep on!
- So...
- Huh?
...tomorrow she's gonna
find her froggies a new home.
And this time, anyone who
gets in her way is gonna feel
the terrible wrath
of Mama Frog!
Mom, I broke my pillow...
The Zugor?
I don't believe it.
- Hi, Zugor.
- Hello.
You are the Zugor, aren't you?
- No, I'm not.
- Sure you are. I saw you.
- No, you didn't.
- You scared off that rhino
so you could get this fruit.
Hey, that's mine!
Gee, thanks... for nothing!
Your fault we were being
chased in the first place.
Hey, wait up.
Go away.
Leave me alone.
- Alone?
- Yes. Alone?
Zugor Rule Number One:
Don't need anyone but yourself.
Go home.
- I can't. I ran away.
- Yeah, yeah, yeah.
And I can't go back, not until
I learn how to be a good ape.
Go play with an alligator.
Hey, maybe you could teach me?
You're the Zugor.
Teach? Me? Nah.
Wait... Nah.
How about this: Nah!
So long, goodbye.
Okay, I guess I'll be going.
Boy, I can't wait to tell
everyone who the Zugor really is.
Especially those three big apes.
Gosh, I bet we have a good laugh
when I tell them
you're the Zugor.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
You know, you could
change your mind.
That way, I'll never
tell anyone your secret.
I don't like you.
Fine. Deal. I'll help you.
And in return,
you don't tell anyone.
Right! Don't tell anyone.
You can't catch me, Zugor.
Not now, guys. Okay?
I'm not in the mood.
Hey! I said I'm not in the mood!
Okay? Now get lost!
Look, I'm sorry. Okay?
The game just wouldn't be the same
without Tarzan. You know?
I can't believe he's gone.
Terk! Tarzan's alive!
- That's impossible.
- But I heard him.
He was saying,
"Don't tell anyone."
You've been in the sun too long. Take
two mangoes, call me in the morning.
I heard Tarzan's voice
coming from up on Dark Mountain.
Why didn't anyone else hear it?
I'm an elephant.
I've got 20l20 hearing.
Okay. Let's see
if we can find him.
Terk... Tarzan said
not to tell anyone.
Huh? Oh.
Whoa, whoa.
You guys have to stay here.
- Nuh-uh.
- No, we don't.
Yeah, you do. You...
You need to stay behind
and... cover for us. Yeah.
If anybody asks,
tell them we're out
picking monkey berries.
- Got it?
- Okay.
Monkey berries. Got it.
Yeah, you're very cute.
Okay? Run along, run along.
Terk was trying to teach me to be a good
ape by pretending to be a monster.
She was pretending to be you,
but you're not a monster.
You're just a Zugor who pretends...
Hey! Wait for me!
Wow. This is your home?
Where do you sleep?
This place is great.
You even have your own stream.
Now, in as few words
as possible,
what do I gotta do
to get rid of you?
Teach me how
to be a good ape.
An ape?
Kid, you're not an ape.
I am too.
Nope. I'll prove it to you.
My arm: Hair.
Your arm: No hair.
Not an ape.
But... but I gotta be.
My mom's an ape,
my friends are apes,
my whole family.
If I'm not an ape, then...
...what am I?
I don't know.
Maybe you're some form
of mutant hairless gibbon.
Or a variety of
annoying featherless bird.
A bird?
Or perhaps some rare species
of ugly fish.
- Ugly?
- Oh, yes.
Very, very, very ugly.
There. Figured you're not
an ape. That wraps it up.
Can't teach you to be
something you're not. Bye.
Whoa, wait. You still gotta
help me find out what I am.
We have a deal... Zugor.
- Zugor, thank you so...
- Hold it.
No sappy "thank you's"
will be encouraged, indulged
or even barely tolerated.
Come on. The sooner we figure out what
you are, the sooner I can be rid of you.
- Hey, Zugor.
- Huh?
Thanks anyway.
Sometimes everything
seems out of my reach
No matter how hard I try
Sometimes I feel like
nothing at all inside
When everything
that I try to hold onto
Just seems to slip away
And though I'm falling
keeps calling me back again
But I'll keep looking
I'll sink or swim
I'll keep searching
to find the real me
Who am I?
Tell me
Where do I come from?
Who am I?
Tell me
Feels like
I don't fit in at all
Sometimes I feel
like running away
And leaving it all behind
Try to find a place
where I belong
I'll keep looking
I'll find myself
I'll keep searching
to find the real me
Who am I?
Tell me
Can I ever be me?
Who am I?
Tell me
It's like
I don't fit in...
You know what, kid?
You got pluck.
I hate pluck.
Oh, it's like
I don't fit in
No, no, no
I don't fit in at all
I am the Zugor. Roar!
- Auntie Kala's sad.
- How come?
She misses Tarzan.
That's right, little one.
Don't cry, Tarzan's still...
- Monkey berries.
- Remember?
I know.
I wasn't gonna tell her.
- Tell me what?
- That Tarzan's alive.
And Terk and Tantor
went to look for him.
On Dark Mountain.
Tarzan's alive?
I'm going to look for them.
You kids stay here.
Well, today didn't
work out too good.
But we'll try again
tomorrow, right?
I'm eager, excited,
breathless with anticipation.
Enough yapping out of you.
Less yapping, more napping.
Me, here.
You, there.
Way over there.
Me Tarzan, you grouch.
Old bones.
You need a better nest.
My mom could make
a really good nest.
Yeah. My mom made
a great nest too.
- Soft.
- Warm.
She made me this nest once,
swung between two branches.
Like sleeping on air.
So when did you figure out
you were a Zugor?
That's past.
- All in the past.
- What happened?
Got old, got slow, got left behind.
Same old story. Boo-hoo. How sad for me.
A danger to the family.
I'm gonna take a look around.
Got to keep an eye out. Keep them away.
- Rule Number One.
- Can I help?
Terk, isn't Dark Mountain
where the Zugor lives?
Don't worry about that.
Zugor's just an imaginary
figment, remember?
He's not real.
Sure, you know that
and I know that,
but does he know that?
Go on. Shoo!
I do believe in Zugors! I do believe
in Zugors! I do! I do! I do!
- You got him all right, Kago.
- Hey, let me up.
Uh, Kago?
This isn't a baby bird.
- It isn't?
- No. It isn't.
Hey, you can't do that
to my brother.
Oh, no!
The Zugor has Terk
Leave my friend alone!
Take me instead!
- Whoa!
- You want a piece of me?
She's being eaten.
Oh, the horror!
Now, what are we
going to do with you?
I know. Let's throw her off
a cliff and see if she can fly.
Gorillas can't fly.
Oh, yeah? How do you know?
Because we are gorillas.
- So?
- And we can't fly.
Yeah, but if our bones were hollow,
and we had wings and feathers,
we'd be the biggest birds in town.
Well, what in the world?
Look, Ma, we found a gorilla.
And just where did this cute
little sweetums come from?
Hey, hey.
Enough already, lady.
I need that cheek for eating.
Oh, aren't you
just the precocious one.
Where are you from, dear?
Tell us about your family, huh?
Is there a silverback?
Forget it, lady. I'm not talking
and you can't make me.
Let's try that again.
Shall we, dear?
Now, how did you
get past the Zugor?
And where exactly did you say your
family is from?
Is it nice?
Lots of food and water?
Perhaps you could show us
the way sometime.
Terk? Are you out there
or are you all eaten?
...anybody marching
around my mountain,
soiling my soil,
messing with my stuff.
It's my stuff.
Hey! Why are you messing
with my stuff?
I made you a nest.
You made this?
- For me?
- Sure. For your old bones.
Like your mom used to make.
Try it out.
This wasn't part of the deal.
I know.
It's good.
Sleeping on air.
I don't know
what you are, Tarzan,
but you're pretty clever.
Like the other day when you did
that nifty vine thing with the rhino.
- Never seen anything like it.
- Yeah, well,
I'm not smart enough
to figure out what I am though.
I'm not strong like an elephant.
Not tall like a giraffe.
I can't fly like a bird.
Maybe I'm a nothing.
So, you're just gonna
sit here and hold onto me
until your mama comes back?
- All day long?
- Yup.
I'm gonna smash you.
Say, Uto,
how come you gotta do all
the hard work around here?
Huh? What? Hard work?
I mean, you gotta sit here with me
while lazy Kago over there
gets to have fun
beating up his rock.
I mean, I don't know,
but that just don't seem fair.
Nope, not fair at all.
Not even a little bit fair.
Say, this isn't fair.
- What?
- I said this isn't fair.
Me doing all the hard work.
You gotta do some work too,
so here, Mr Lazy.
Are you gonna take that?
- Take what?
- Uto insulted you.
- He insulted me?
- Yes.
- You insulted me?
- Yes?
No idea who you're dealing with.
Uto, stop!
- Where is she?
- Oops.
Just wait till I catch her again.
I'll... I'll...
Hey, you got a banana.
Good job.
Not really.
If I was a chimp or a baboon,
I'd just climb to the top
and get a whole bunch.
I can only get one at a time.
Still think you're a nothing, huh?
Maybe we can do
something about that.
- We can?
- Yeah, I figure,
since you're nothing,
and you're looking
to be something...
...you might as well
try being a Zugor.
A Zugor?
It's fine if you don't want to.
Feel free to say no.
After all, it can get pretty lonely.
You mean, I'd be like you?
Wow! A Zugor!
Yes! I'm a Zugor.
Rule Number One:
We don't need anyone
but ourselves.
This is our mountain. Roar!
Our mountain.
Zugor in training,
use that vine thing of yours
to round up some breakfast.
Yes, sir.
You know,
this wasn't part of the deal.
I know.
Hello? Is anyone there?
Something's got me.
It's the monster!
Goodbye cruel jungle world.
I'm doomed! Doomed!
Doomed to be a coconut head.
- Terk?
- The one and only.
- Let's get out of here.
- Whoa!
Terk? Tantor?
Tarzan! You're alive!
You're alive!
We thought you were dead,
and then Tantor...
Heard you yell, but when we got
to Dark Mountain, the Zugor...
And then those big apes...
And then I was stuck in a hole
and Terk got eaten.
Sort of.
- Wait. Those big apes are after you?
- They're probably right behind us.
Come on.
I know a great place to hide.
What a sweet reunion.
We're sorry we let her get away.
But she's an evil genius.
It's all right, boys.
Now we can follow them.
- Where, Ma?
- Past the Zugor, of course.
What are you doing here?
I told you to stay home.
We're bored of staying home.
And we like monkey berries.
We aren't looking
for monkey berries.
- But we might find some.
- All right, but stay close.
Would you move it already?
Those apes could've
thumped us by now.
Did we make it?
Yep, we'll be safe here.
Boy, I sure missed you guys.
We missed you too, pal.
That's why we came to bring you home.
- Not coming home.
- You're not?
Nope. I'm a Zugor now.
A Zugor?
What does that mean?
Means I don't need anybody
but myself.
- Anybody?
- Anybody.
Well, what about your mom?
She's better off without me.
And I can't go back.
I'm a Zugor now.
Well, who is this
Zugor monster anyways?
I told you, he's not a monster.
- There is no monster.
- No monster?
What do you mean, no monster?
Well, I mean there's no monster...
- Bigger or scarier...
- Hey!
Looky what I found.
Put me down. Put me down!
What the?
Why? Who?
- Zugor...
- You said you wouldn't tell anybody.
- You promised.
- Zugor, I'm sorry.
- I didn't mean to...
- You're the Zugor?
All this time, my poor boys and I
have been stuck in that
rotten valley because of you?
I ought to...
- Leave him alone!
- Out of the way, twerp.
You know what, boys?
I think this place could use
a little... remodelling.
Good. Good.
Hey, Kago, look at this.
It's bouncy, bouncy, bounce...
You see? It's not nice
to fool Mama Gunda.
- Zugor?
- This is your fault.
I'm sorry. I needed
to help my friends and I...
So that's where
all of you are from.
How lovely.
Thanks to blabbermouth here,
we know where to find
our new home.
They squeezed it out of me.
Come on, boys. Let's go
take over the neighbourhood.
And this time,
no one gets in our way.
There it is.
Dark Mountain.
Zugor, where are you?
First rule...
Zugor, come on.
We need your help.
- Tarzan, we're gonna warn Kerchak.
- Wait. We're coming with you.
No offence, Tarzan,
but you'll just slow us down.
- Let's go, Tant.
- They won't make it in time.
You're the one
who knows this mountain.
No. I never should have let you in.
I thought you were my friend
and you betrayed me.
It was the first rule,
and I broke it.
Zugor, please.
I know I messed everything up,
but you've got to help.
It's my family.
Then go. Go!
You don't need me!
And I don't need you!
Boo-hoo for me.
- I think I know which way to go.
- Yeah, me too.
- It's that way.
- Come on, guys. I know a shortcut.
- Tarzan!
- No!
Let's never speak of this again.
Come on!
Slow, down.
Don't get too far ahead.
- I won't.
- Huh?
Hey, look Ma, a baby.
Well, for goodness sakes.
Can I play with it?
- Can I?
- Put him down.
Says who?
- Back off.
- Yeah!
You can't do that to my brother.
- Mom, are you okay?
- Tarzan!
Oh, goody.
- Leave him alone!
- Let's see if he can fly.
- Zugor?
- Tarzan!
But, what are you?
I did it!
I finally figured out
what you are!
- A Tarzan!
- A Tarzan?
Yes. Remember how you
saved us from that rhino?
And made that great hammock?
And got those bananas?
You do things no one else can.
Kid, you're a Tarzan.
Now, go get 'em.
- Hey!
- Huh?
It's him.
Get out of here,
you ratty old thing.
You hit every branch
when you fell out of the ugly tree.
Well, you're so bony, I bet
the vultures wouldn't even want you.
Hey, the hippo called.
He wants his body back.
Hold on, little ones.
Auntie Kala.
Auntie Kala!
Come on. Climb up.
Put a cork in it,
you scraggly old sloth.
You big blob of swamp gas.
Lizard lips!
- Slug snot!
- Bat barf!
You have beautiful eyes!
This is creepy. What is he?
Where is he?
What was that?
Uto, wait for me!
Auntie Kala, hang on!
- Mom!
- Kala!
Yes! Way to go, Tarzan!
I thought I'd lost you.
I'm sorry I left, Mom.
But I didn't want to hurt you.
Hurt me?
Tarzan, you saved me.
- Mama! Help!
- He's after us.
He's everywhere!
Hello, boys.
He thinks I have beautiful eyes.
Wait a second.
Aren't we gonna thump somebody?
- Yeah.
- No, dears.
- That's all over now.
- But, Ma!
How many times do I have
to tell you no fighting?
No more fighting with anyone.
Yes, ma'am.
The timeless mystery of love.
Okay, wait,
I think I've got it.
You thought you were a nothing,
but you're really a something,
which makes you an anything?
- No, Mom.
- What was it again?
It doesn't matter.
You were right before.
What I am...
is part of this family.
Tarzan, I am so proud of you.
- Zugor!
- Tarzan.
- I came to say goodbye.
- Already?
Well, you know.
They need me.
- I'll be up to visit you soon.
- You better.
And, Zugor...
Thanks for everything.
No. Thank you.
