Timon: How convenient. Enter omniscient monkey, right on cue.

Timon: That's it. No more fortune-cookies for you.

Shenzi: For your last meal, you're gonna eat those words.

Timon: I uh, I guess I owe everyone an apology. All right so I made a teensy mistake, like we all haven't broken into song on sentry duty before uh-haha come on, let me have a show of hands! Ooook.

Continuity mistake: When Rafiki is telling Timon "It means - Look beyond what you see", there is a glitch in the shading on Rafiki's left arm just before he moves his palm upwards and gestures. It disappears before he raises his hand.

Question: Immediately before finding Simba, Timon is having quills plucked out of his back and complains "Guess bowling for porcupines wasn't the best idea, huh?" Can this be a reference to Michael Moore's 'Bowling for Columbine'? The phrases are VERY similar, but it seems unlikely Disney would make light of a shooting in a school.

Answer: No, this would be a reference to link this film with the first, as Timone and Pumba scare off the buzzards that are surrounding Simba and Pumba says "Bowling for buzzards!" Hence "Bowling for porcupines..."
