Simba: I'm going to be King of Pride Rock.
Scar: Oh, wonderful.
Simba: My dad just showed me the whole kingdom. And I'm going to rule it all. Heheh.

Zazu: Checking in with the morning report.
Mufasa: Fire away.
Zazu: Well the buzz from the bees is that the leopards are in a bit of a spot. And the baboons are going ape over this. Of course, the giraffes are acting like they're above it all... The tick birds are pecking on the elephants. I told the elephants to forget it, but they can't. The cheetahs are hard up, but I always say, cheetahs never prosper...
 

Zazu: Checking in with the morning report.
Mufasa: Tell me what's happening.
Zazu: Well the gossip from the bees is that the leopards are having difficulties. And the baboons are going crazy over this. Of course, the giraffes are acting like they're too important to be botherered with it... The tick birds are picking on (tormenting) the elephants. I told the elephants to forget it, but they can't. The cheetahs don't have much money, but I always say, cheaters never prosper...*

*Of course, all of these are double meanings. Bees make a buzzing sound, leopards have spots, elephants have long memories, etc.
