Tarzan
Movie Quote Quiz

Jane Porter: I was saved! I was saved by a flying wild man in a loincloth.

Kerchak: You came back.
Tarzan: I came home.

Tarzan: Kerchak, forgive me.
Kerchak: No. Forgive me, for not understanding that you have always been one of us. Our family will look to you now.
Tarzan: No. Kerchak.
Kerchak: Take care of them, my son. Take care of them.

Clayton: If I can teach a parrot to sing "God Save the Queen," I can certainly teach this savage a thing or two.

Ape Boy: Hurry up, Terk.
Mungo: Last one there's a dung beetle.
Terk: Yeah, first one's gotta eat it.

Terk: What kind of primitive beasts are responsible for this mess?

Young Tarzan: I'll be the best ape ever.

Clayton: Hiding, are we? Good! I could use a challenge, because after hunting you, gathering up your little ape family will be all too easy.

Clayton: Sorry for the rude welcome, but I couldn't have you making a scene when we put your furry friends in their cages.
Tarzan: Why?
Clayton: Why? For 300 pounds sterling a head. Actually, I have you to thank, old boy. Couldn't have done it without you.

Tarzan: No matter where I go, you will always be my mother.
Kala: And you will always be in my heart.

Jane Porter: Oh, Tarzan, you have no idea what's in store for you. You're going to see the world, and all kinds of people will want to meet you. Leaders, scientists, writers.
Professor Porter: Yes, Darwin and Kipling. Queen Victoria.
Jane Porter: I haven't met her, but I hear she's awfully nice.

Professor Porter: Looks like a man but walks like an ape. He could be the missing link.
Clayton: Or our link to the gorillas.

Clayton: Ah, yes. I remember you. I think this one would be better off stuffed.

Factual error: When the humans are capturing the gorillas, Clayton fires about 15 rounds from his double rifle. This is pretty impressive, considering this is the early 1900's.

Trivia: At the beginning of the film, when baby Tarzan is blowing spit bubbles, the bubbles look a lot like Mickey Mouse. It's a long standing Disney tradition to put "hidden Mickeys" in their movies.

More trivia for Tarzan

Answer: From the picture of his parents. He knows where everything goes, and it's not too hard to work out how to put them on.

Answer: Also, he's been thoroughly educated on human customs and society by Jane, her father, and Clayton by that point. Possibly they taught him about dressing himself during their lessons, and he continued to go about wearing the loincloth out of personal preference.
