Kaa Quotes in The Jungle Book (2016)
Kaa: [to Mowgli] Are you alone out here? What are you doing so deep in the jungle? Don't you know what you are?... I know what you are. I know where you came from. Poor, sweet little cub. I'll keep you clossse. Let go of your fear now... and trussst in meee...
Kaa: Hi little cub. Oh no, don't be ssscared. Are you alone out here?
Mowgli: I'm waiting for a friend.
Kaa: I can be with you until he getsss here.
Kaa: Mostly, men stay in their village, far from the dark of the jungle. But sometimes, they travel. And when they do, their caves breathe in the dark. They call it the Red Flower. Man's creation. It brings warmth and light and destruction to all that it touchesss.
Kaa: Shere Khan ended the man's life that night... but not before he was burned by the red flower's touch.
[Kaa tries to hypnotize Shere Khan just as he did to Mowgli]
Kaa: [singing] Trust in me...
[Shere Khan bats him away with his free paw]
Shere Khan: I can't be bothered with that, I have no time for that nonesense.
Kaa: Ssssssssome other time, perhaps?
Shere Khan: [Scratches Kaa's nostril with his claw] Perhaps. But at the moment I'm searching for a man-cub.
Kaa: Man-cub? What man-cub?
Shere Khan: The one who is lost. Now where do you suppose we could be?
Kaa: Search me?
[Kaa covers his mouth to stifle his gasp]
Shere Khan: That's an excellent idea. I'm sure you wouldn't mind showing me your coils, would you, Kaa?
Kaa: Ccccccertainly not.
[Shows his tail]
Kaa: Nothing here, and nothing in here.
[Points into his mouth]
Kaa: [Mowgli snores up in the treetop and Shere Khan's ears prick up at the sound; Kaa snores noisly]
Kaa: It'ssssssss my ssssinuses.
Shere Khan: Hm.
[looks up at the treetop]
Shere Khan: Indeed. And now, how about the middle?
Kaa: The middle? Oh, the middle.
[Kaa unfurls part of his midsection, twirling Mowgli around in his sleep, and brings it down for Shere Khan to inspect, which he does]
Kaa: [laughs] I-I-I assure you there's nothing in the middle.
Shere Khan: Hmm, barely. Well, if you do so happen to see the man-cub, you will inform me first.
[Scratches Kaa's chin]
Shere Khan: Understand?
Kaa: [gulps] I get the point. Cross my heart, hope to die.
Shere Khan: In good show. And now I must continue my search for the helpless little lad.
[Shere Khan wanders off, Kaa frowns]
Kaa: Oh, who does he think he's fooling. The helpless little lass... woooo he gives me the shhhhhhivers.
[Kaa's shivering wakes up Mowgli]
Kaa: Picking on that poor, little, helpless boy. Oh yes... poor, little, helpless boy.
[Mowgli pushes the rest of Kaa's coils off the branch he is on and sends him falling to the ground]
[as Kaa is about to eat Mowgli, Shere Khan pulls on his tail, which makes a doorbell sound]
Kaa: Ooh! Oh, now what? I'll be right down. Yes, yes, who is it?
Shere Khan: It's me. Shere Khan. I'd like a word with you, if you don't mind.
Kaa: Shere Khan, what a surprise.
Shere Khan: Yes, isn't it. I just dropped by. Now forgive me if I've interrupted anything.
Kaa: Oh no, no, nothing at all.
Shere Khan: [brandishing his claws] I thought perhaps that you were entertaining someone up there in your coils.
Kaa: Coils? Someone? Oh no, I was just curling up for my siesta.
Shere Khan: But you were singing to someone. Who is it, Kaa?
[Shere Khan grabs Kaa's throat with his paw]
Kaa: Ah, um, oh no, I was just singing, uh, to myself.
Shere Khan: Indeed.
Kaa: Yes... yes, you see I have... trouble with my sinuses.
Shere Khan: What a pity!
Kaa: Oh, you have no idea. It's simply terrible. I can't eat, I can't sleep, so I ssssssing myself to sleep. You know, self-hypnosis. Let me show you how it works.
[Kaa prepares to look in Shere Khan's eyes and try to hypnotize him]
Kaa: [after being hit by Bagheera] Ooh, my s-s-sinus. You have just made a s-s-s-serious mistake, my friend. A very s-s-s-stupid...
Bagheera: N-n-now, Kaa, I was...
Kaa: ...mis-s-stake. Look me in the eye when I'm speaking to you.
Bagheera: [has one eye closed to avoid being hypnotized] No, please, Kaa...
Kaa: Both eyes, if you please.
[Bagheera is fully hypnotized]
Kaa: You have just s-s-sealed your doom.
[just as Kaa is about to eat Bagheera, Mowgli pushes Kaa's body off the tree; he falls in a pile on the ground]
[Kaa has hypnotized Mowgli into a deep sleep]
Kaa: You're s-s-snoring.
Mowgli: [asleep] Sorry.
Mowgli: [mentioning Kaa] Bagheera, he's got a knot in his tail!
Kaa: [imitating Mowgli] He-he-he, he's got a knot in his tail!
Kaa: [hypnotizing Mowgli and coiling him up] Please, go to sleep, sleep tight little man-cub, rest in peace... sleep... sleep...
Mowgli: Ba... Bagheera?
Bagheera: Now, it's no use arguing anymore. No more talk until morning.
Kaa: [laughs] He won't be here in the morning.
[starts to eat Mowgli]
Bagheera: [almost asleep, but soon notices Kaa about to devour Mowgli] Huh? Oh yes, he will, I... KAA! HOLD IT, KAA!
[smacks Kaa in the face]
[after Mowgli pushes Kaa's coils off him the second and last time]
Mowgli: [angry] You told me a lie, Kaa. You said I could trust you!
Kaa: It's like YOU said: you can't trust ANYONE!
Mowgli: [to Kaa] Go away! Leave me alone!
Kaa: [trying to get Mowgli to look into his eyes] Let me look at you.
Kaa: You don't want me to look at you? Then you look at me.
Kaa: [to Mowgli] Just you wait till I get you in my coils!
Shanti: [Shanti is lost in the jungle] Who's there?
Kaa: Exssscussse me, pleassse...
[he begins hypnotizing Shanti]
Kaa: ... might I be of sssome asssissstansssce?
Kaa: Are you lossst, little one? Are you hungry? I'm ssstarved!
Kaa: Are you hungry? I'm starved.
Kaa: [hypnotizing Shanti] Exssscussse me, pleassse... might I be of sssome asssissstansssce?
