The Jungle Book
Movie Quote Quiz

Baloo: You better believe it.

Bagheera: This will take brains, not brawn.
Baloo: You better believe it, and I'm loaded with both.

Mowgli: Oh, Baloo, I wanna stay with you.
Baloo: Certainly, you do.
Bagheera: Oh? And just how do you think he will survive?

Bagheera: Oh? That shouldn't take too long.

Deliberate mistake: After Baloo and Bagheera escape from the monkeys, they both have a black eye. However, during their conversation by the water, between shots their black eyes vanish. [This is a Disney tradition, but still a mistake.]
