Rafiki: What was that?! Ha ha, the weather! Very peculiar, don't you think?
Simba: Yeah. Looks like the winds are changing.
Rafiki: Ahh, change is good.
Simba: Yeah, but it's not easy. I know what I have to do, but going back means I'll have to face my past. I've been running from it for so long.
*Rafiki hits Simba over the head with his stave*
Simba: OW! Jeez, what was that for?!
Rafiki: It doesn't matter! It's in the past!
Simba: Yeah, but it still hurts.
Rafiki: Oh yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or... learn from it.
*Rafiki again swings the stave at Simba, who ducks it*
Rafiki: Ha ha! You see? So what are you going to do?
Simba: First, I'm gonna take your stick! *he grabs Rafiki's stave and tosses it*
Rafiki: Nononono! It's not a stick! *sees Simba running off* Hey! Where are you going?
Simba: I'm going back!
Rafiki: Good! Go on! Get out of here! *cackles and howls victoriously*

Mufasa: That's beyond our borders. You must never go there, Simba.
Simba: But I thought a king could do whatever he wants?
Mufasa: Well, there's more to being king than getting your way all the time.
Simba: There's more?
Mufasa: (chuckling) Simba...
(Mufasa and Simba walk through plains)
Mufasa: Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.
Simba: But, Dad, don't we eat the antelope?
Mufasa: Yes, Simba, but let me explain: When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass. And so, we are all connected in the great Circle of Life...
