Shenzi Quotes:

  • Banzai: [In the hyenas' lair, Banzai slouches with claw marks on his rear] Man, that lousy Mufasa... I won't be able to sit for a *week!*

    Ed the Hyena: [laughs, but also tries his best to conceal it from time to time] Eh-hee-hee-hee. Heh-heheheheheheheheheh...

    Banzai: [Glares at Ed and bares his teeth with impatience] It's not funny, Ed.

    Ed the Hyena: [Cups his paws over his mouth then bursts into hysterical laughter, spitting as his tongue lofts out of his mouth] BA-HA-HA-HAAAA! HA-AH-AH-AH-AH!

    [Inhales deeply]

    Banzai: Hey, shut up!

    Ed the Hyena: AH-HA-HO! HO-HO-HO-HO!

    Banzai: [Bares his teeth] Grrrrrr...

    [as Ed continues to laugh, Banzai barks and pounces on Ed, abruptly ending his laughing. The two commence a brief fight]

    Shenzi: [Rolls her eyes and turns to the two yelping and rolling atop each other aggressively] Will you knock it off?

    Banzai: [ed appears to be chewing on Banzai's leg; Banzai sits up] Well, he started it!

    [It is now obvious that Ed is chewing his own leg repeatedly]

    Shenzi: Look at you guys! No wonder we're dangling at the bottom of the food chain!

    Banzai: [a string of drool dangles from his chin] Man, I hate dangling...

    Shenzi: [Scoffs] Yeah? You know, if it weren't for those lions, we'd be *runnin'* the joint.

    [Ed nods idiotically]

    Banzai: We've got a bone to pick with you!

    Shenzi: I'll handle this. Scar, there's no food, no water...

    Banzai: Yeah, it's dinner time, and we ain't got no stinkin' entrees.

    Scar: It's the lionesses' job to do the hunting.

    Banzai: Yeah, but they won't go hunt.

    Scar: Oh... eat Zazu.

    Zazu: Oh, you wouldn't want me. I'd be so tough and gamey and... eeww...

    Scar: Oh, Zazu, don't be ridiculous. All you need is a little garnish.

  • Scar: Ahh, my friends.

    Shenzi: Friends? I thought he said we were the enemy.

    Banzai: That's what I heard. Ed?

    Ed the Hyena: Oo-oo-ooh, he-he, he-he-he

  • Shenzi: What's the hurry? We'd love you to stick around for dinner.

    Banzai: Hey, did we order this dinner to go?

    Shenzi: No, why?

    Banzai: 'Cause THERE IT GOES!

  • Shenzi: [Banzai's stomach growls] Shut up.

    Banzai: I can't help it. I'm so hungry... I gotta have a wildebeest.

    Shenzi: Stay *put*.

    Banzai: Well... can't I just pick off one of the little sick ones?

    Shenzi: NO! Wait for the signal from Scar.

    [Scar appears on the horizon]

    Shenzi: There he is. Let's go.

  • Banzai: Oh, Scar, it's just you.

    Shenzi: We were afraid it was somebody important.

    Banzai: Yeah, you know, like Mufasa.

    Scar: I see.

    Banzai: Now that's power.

    Shenzi: Tell me about it. I just hear that name and I shudder.
