Scene 1: Opening

(DreamWorks Animation SKG with 2005 animated logo)

(In the beginning, the island of Madagascar appears in Marty's daydream. Marty yells like Tarzan and jumps out the vine. The choir penguins sing Born Free and they fly. Marty runs and jumps to the water in slow motion. Alex appears, sneaking towards Marty as almost in the middle of a dream, Alex jumps up snapping him out of his dream.)

Alex: Surprise!

Marty: (screaming, falls from treadmill and crashes into a fence) Alex! Do not interrupt me when I’m daydreaming! When a zebra’s in the zone, leave him alone.

Alex: Come on, Marty. I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday!

Marty: (Chuckles) Hey, man. Thanks!

(Alex expresses pain on the right side of his jaw)

Alex: Oh, ah! Oh! Hey um, I got s—I got something stuck in my teeth. It's driving me crazy! Can you help me out here? Please?

Marty: Ah! You came to the right place, my friend. Doctor Marty D.D.S. is in the house! Please hop on top of my sterilized examination table, if you may.

(Alex opens the mouth, but Marty can't see anything, because it's dark)

Marty: I don't see anything.

Alex: (Muffled) It's on the left.

Marty: Ow!

Alex: (Muffled) Oh, sorry.

Marty: OK, just don't talk with your mouth full. (Alex nods) Aha! Right here. What the heck is this doing in there?

Alex: Happy birthday!

Marty: Aw, hey, thanks, man. You put it in behind the tooth. You all right.

Alex: These aren't even on the shelf yet. Here! Check it out. Check it out! Look at that. Ooh! Look at that! Ooh!

Marty: Look at that. It's snowing.

Alex: 10 years old, huh? A decade. Double digits. The big 1-O! You don't like it?

Marty: No, no, it's great!

Alex: You hate it. Ugh! I should've gotten you the Alex alarm clock. That's the one. That’s the big seller.

Marty: No, no, no. The present's great, really. It's just that another year's come and gone and I'm still doing the same old thing. (imitating) "Stand over here, trot over there. Eat some grass. Walk back over here."

Alex: I see your problem.

Marty: Maybe I should go to law school.

Alex: You just need to break out of that boring routine.

Marty: How?

Alex: Throw out the old act. Get out there! Who knows what you're gonna do. Make it up as you go along. Ad lib. Improvise. On the fly. Boom, boom, boom.

Marty: Really?

Alex: You know, make it fresh.

Marty: Fresh, huh? OK. I could do fresh.

Alex: Works for me.

[Earth, Wind and Fire's Boogie Wonderland plays as the statue monkeys ring the bell at the front of the zoo ring at the zoo's opening hour. The People are coming! Alex bursts with excitement about them.]

Alex: Here come the people, Marty! Oh, I love the people! It's fun people fun time! Whoo!

(Alex hops into Gloria the Hippo's habitat and tap dances on her butt)

Alex: Let's go, Gloria! Up and at 'em! We're open!

Gloria: (yawning) What day is it?

Alex: It's Friday! Field trip day! Dadadadada! Boom! Let’s go! Come on!

Gloria: Yes, it's field trip day. Let's get up and go... (falls asleep again) in 10 more minutes.

(ricocheting off a lamppost, Alex arrives at the roof of Melman's pen. Melman is a timid giraffe with constant health problems, or so he thinks)

Alex: Come on! (sings in Conga style) Melman, Melman, Melman! Melman, Melman, Melman! Wake up! Rise and shine! It's another fabulous morning in the Big Apple. Let's go!

Melman: (scoffs) Not for me. I'm calling in sick.

Alex: What?

Melman: I found a brow-- another brown spot on my shoulder. Right here. See? Right t- Right there. You see?

Alex: Melman, you know it's all in your head. Hmm?

[Kids and adults burst through the zoo gates eager to view the animals and Alex.]

Kid: Let's go! Come on!

[As rushed parents threw away their coffee cups in the trash, Mason the chimp yawns, retrieves a newspaper, a half-empty coffee cup, and a bagel and returns to his roommate Phil, a mute chimp who doesn't speak.]

Mason: Phil! Wake up, you filthy monkey. (Mason gives Phil his coffee while he reads the newspaper and eats his bagel. Meanwhile, Marty prepares to give his audience something special for his birthday.)

Marty: Oh, I'm going to be fresh. Straight out the ground. Tasty fresh! Freshalicious. (sips some water and spits it out) Ziploc fresh.

[an eager crowd awaits outside Alex's rock as they wait for their king to emerge]

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages, the Central Park Zoo proudly presents:

Kids: (chanting) Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex!

[backstage Alex prepares himself for another day of people pleasing]

Alex: Oh! Show them the cat! Who's the cat? Whoo!

Announcer: The king of New York City.

Both: Alex the Lion!

Alex: (roars) Ahhhh!

Marty: It's showtime! (simultaneously as Alex emerges and turns on the fan blowing his mane)

[Alex emerges on his rock and lets out his signature roar.]

Alex: Roar!!!

[Crowds go wild! This is what he lived for! Meanwhile, folks gather around Marty's pen to see his act.]

Marty: Gather around, people. Big show about to start. Check out the zebra taking care of biz. That's right.

[sucking up some water, Marty performs impossibly impressive water tricks with his mouth then sprays at 3 adults. This amazes the kids and attracts photographers to take pictures of him. A series of pictures show Gloria swimming tricks and Melman's MRI and medication treatments. On another side of the zoo, the four penguin brothers who are also agents, Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private are plotting something of their mission...]

Skipper: Just smile and wave, boys. Smile and wave. Kowalski, progress report!

[Kowalski, the brains of the group, emerges from a hole dug out previously by the penguins]

Kowalski: We're only 500 feet from the main sewer line.

Skipper: And the bad news?

Kowalski: We've broken our last shovel. (shows a broken spoon)

Skipper: Right... (turns to his weapon specialist Rico) Rico, you're on litter patrol. We need shovels. And find more Popsicle sticks. We don't want to risk another cave-in. (Rico jumps in the pool)

[Private, the youngest of the group, perks up]

Private: And me, Skipper?

Skipper: I want you to look cute and cuddly, Private. Today we're gonna blow this dump.

(Rico snatches a plastic spoon from a boy eating his frozen yogurt. Marty, meanwhile at sunset, impresses his last fans by making fart noises with his arm pits.)

Marty: Yeah! You don't see that on Animal Planet! Ha-ha. (mesmerized kids are hauled away by disgusted and confused parents) Well, show's over, folks. Thanks for coming. I hope you thought it was fresh. I'll be here all week. In fact, I'll be here for my whole life. 365 days a year, including Christmas, Hanukkah, Halloween, Kwanzaa. Please don't forget to never spay or neuter your pets. (sips on his beverage) And tip your cabbie, because he's broke.

[suddenly a pair of shovels dig up from the ground and the penguin brothers emerge]

Skipper: You, quadruped. Sprechen sie Englisch?

Marty: I sprechen.

Skipper: What continent is this?

Marty: Manhattan.

Skipper: Hoover Dam! We're still in New York. Abort. Dive! Dive! Dive!

Marty: Hey, hey! You in the tux! Wait a minute! What are you guys doing?

Private: We're digging to Antarctica. (receives a slap from Skipper to silence him)

Marty: Ant-who-tica?

Skipper: Can you keep a secret, my monochromatic friend? (Marty nods and leans down to listen a little secret) Do you ever see any penguins running free around New York City? (he shakes his head for no) Of course not. We don't belong here. It's just not natural. This is all some kind of whacked-out conspiracy. We're going to the wide-open spaces of Antarctica. To the wild! (the four high five each other as Skipper slaps Private again.)

Marty: The wild? You could actually go there? That sounds great. (before he can thank them, the four have already gone down the hole) Hey, hold up! Where is this place? (Muffled) Tell me where it is! (Skipper alone emerges from the hole pushing his face)

Skipper: You didn't see anything... Right?

Marty: Yes, sir! Oh! Uh, I'm sorry. No, sir. (Skipper dives back into the hole and seals the hole entrance with Marty's cup)

Announcer: For his final appearance of the day, the king of New York City. Alex the Lion!

Alex: Roar!!!

[And the bells are ringing, because it's time to go home and close the Zoo.]

Alex: Thank you. Thank you very much. You guys are great. You're a great crowd. Give yourselves a hand, huh. Thank you. (underpants flies in his face) Oh. Thank you. Oh! Well. Thank you. Oh, that's too kind. Too kind. (sling shoots the I Heart NY undies which land on Melman's nose)

Melman: Aah! Underpants!!

Alex: (humans leave the zoo) Everybody get home safe. Hey! Check out my Website. Twenty-four hour Alex Cam. Watch me sleep.

Scene 2: Marty's 10th birthday begins

[Dusk hits the zoo, and the staff roams the zoo with a band of chefs and groomers to relax the exhausted animals of their hard work. Marty gets his hooves polished like shoes and receives a fresh patch of green grass from the chef as a birthday meal.]

Gloria: This is the life. (Gloria receives a wide variety of fruit for her meal while drying in a big towel.)

Melman: (Melman is still getting medical treatment) That's the spot. (a chef reveals a tray full of medications and vitamins to make him feel better) Oh! I'm in heaven.

[Alex seems to get the most treatment out of all the animals and receives mane grooming, nail trimming, and a full pack of steak meal which he devours in a number of seconds. And later that night, the four friends gather through a small party to celebrate Marty's 10th birthday]

Gloria: Ooh, it's Marty's birthday!

Alex: Just rip it open. Come on!

Marty: What is it? What is it?

Gloria: Come on. Open it up. What you get? What you get? What you get?

Marty: Yeah! A thermometer. Thanks. I love it, Melman. I love it. (puts it in his mouth with style)

Melman: Yeah, I wanted to give you something personal. You know, that was my first rectal thermometer.

Marty: Mother-! (Marty proceeds to gag at the thought and spits out the thermometer while licking his tongue)

Melman: I'll miss that bad boy.

Alex: Okay. Get the cake. Melman, come on.

Everyone but Marty: ♪ Hmmmm… ♪

Alex: Happy

Gloria: birth-

Melman: day

Alex: to

Gloria: you.

Alex: You

Melman: live

Gloria: in

Alex: a zoo.

Gloria: You

Melman: look

Alex: like a

Melman: mon-

Alex: key.

Melman: (holds long note) Aaaaand

Alex: you smell

Gloria: like  

Melman: one

Everyone: too!

Mason: (spits) I say!

Phil: (Smells his armpits and faints)

Marty: Aw, well, now, you guys are just embarrassing me. And yourselves.

Alex: What are you talking about? We worked on that all week.

Gloria: Let's go. Let's make a wish, babycakes.

(Marty blows out the candle shaped like a 10 then takes a big bite)

Alex: Come on. What'd you wish for?

Marty: Nope. Can't tell you that.

Alex: Come on. Tell.

Marty: No, siree. I'm telling you, it's bad luck. You want some bad luck, I'll blab it out. But if you want to be safe, I'll keep my mouth shut.

Gloria: Oh, for crying out loud, Marty. Would you just tell us? I mean, really. What could happen?

Marty: OK. I wished I could go to the wild!

Alex: The wild?! Whoa! (Alex falls over)

(Melman swallows the party tooter and chokes)

(Gloria drops her jaw and Alex thuds)

Marty: I told you it was bad luck.

(Then Gloria tries to get the tooter out of Merman's throat)

Alex: The wild? Are you nuts? That is the worst idea I've ever heard.

Melman: (coughs) It's unsanitary.

Marty: The penguins are going. So why can't I?

Alex: The penguins are psychotic.

Marty: Come on. Just imagine going back to nature. Back to your roots. Clean air, wide-open spaces!

Gloria: Well, I hear they have wide-open spaces in Connecticut.

Marty: Connecticut?

Melman: Yeah. What you got to do is you got to go over to Grand Central. Then you got to take the Metro-North train... north?

Marty: So one could take the train? Just hypothetically.

Alex: Marty, come on. What would Connecticut have to offer us?

Melman: Lyme disease.

Alex: Thank you, Melman.

Marty: No, no, really, really, I just want...

Alex: There's certainly none of this in the wild. Plus, this is a highly refined type of food thing that you do not find in the wild.

Marty: You ever thought there might be more to life than steak, Alex?

Alex: He didn't mean that, baby. No, no, no.

Marty: Doesn't it bother you guys that you don't know anything about life outside this zoo?

Melman: Nuh-uh.

Gloria: Mmm-mm.

Melman: Nope.

Alex: Well. I mean, come on. That's just one subject. You got a little, uh, you got a little schmutz right there on your... (eats his steak)

Marty: (Sighs and uses a napkin to clean his mouth) Thanks, guys. Thanks for the party. It was great. Really. (Alex spits a bone and drops it as Marty uses the treadmill)

Melman: What's eating him?

Gloria: (whispered) Maybe you should talk to him, Alex. You know, go over there and give him a little pep talk.

Alex: Hey, I already gave him a snow globe. I can't top that.

Gloria: (Sighs) Alex…

Melman: I can see where this is going. (Yawns) It is getting late. I guess I'm gonna... (snores)

Gloria: (whispered) Come on. He's your best friend.

Alex: All right, all right. OK.

Gloria: Night, Marty. (backflips into her pool)

Marty: Night, Glo.

Alex: Ahhh… What a day. I mean, just really, really I mean I tell you, it just doesn't get any better than this, you know? Ooh! It just did. Even the star's out. Not going to find a star like that in the wild.

Marty: Helicopter. (it flies away)

Alex: Marty. Buddy. Listen. Everybody has days when they think the grass might be greener somewhere else.

Marty: Alex. Look at me. I'm 10 years old. My life is half over. And I don't even know if I'm black with white stripes... or white with black stripes.

Alex: Marty. I'm thinking of a song.

Marty: Alex. Please. Not now.

Alex: Oh, yes. It's a wonderful song. I think you're familiar with it. ♪ Da da da da da! Da da da da da! Da da da da da! Da! ♪

Marty: Oh, no. Oh, no, you don't. No, no, no. I'm not listening! Lalalalalalalalalalala!

Alex: ♪ Start spreadin' the news ♪

Marty: I don't know you!

Alex: ♪ I'm leaving today! We are a great big part of it ♪

Marty: (Laughs) He's funny. Who is that?

Alex: Come on. You know you know the words. Two little words.

Marty: New York.

Both: ♪ New York! ♪

Bird: Shut up, shut up, shut up!! Hey, I'm sleeping here! We're not all nocturnal, you know!!

Marty: Hey, I'll knock your "turnal" right off, pal.

Snake: Yeah, you and what army, stripes?

Alex: You mess with him, you mess with me, Howard!

Marty: Ah ha ha ha!

Unknown Animal: You're a bigmouth lion!

Alex: See? Mr. Grumpy Stripes! We make a great team, the two of us.

Marty: We sure do. No doubt about it.

Alex: So, what are you going to do? Just go running off to the wild by yourself?

Marty: No.

Alex: Good.

Marty: You and me. Let's go.

Alex: What?

Marty: The wild. Come on. You and me together. It's a straight shot down Fifth Avenue to Grand Central. We'll grab a train, we'll head north. We can be back by morning. No one will ever know.

Alex: (Chuckles) You're joking. Right?

Marty: (Chuckles) Yeah. I'm joking. Of course I'm joking. Give me a break. Like we're going to get a train.

Alex: (Chuckles) Oh. (Sighs) Don't do that. You really had me worried there.

Marty: (Yawning) Oh, well. I guess I'll hit the sack.

Alex: Yeah, me too. I'll need to rest my voice for tomorrow. It's Seniors' Day, you know. Have to roar extra loud. Give them a little jolt! You know what I’m talking about?

Marty: Good night, Ally Al.

Alex: (Sighs and claps twice to turn on the red light and hears a bird) Oh. They forgot to turn off the ambiance again!

Marty: Don't worry. It's cool. You know, I got it. (kicks the speaker, shooing the bird away as it now turns to the sounds of the Police)

Alex: Ah. Much better. (2 hours later) Come on, now, baby. My little filet. My little filet mignon with a little fat around the edges. I like that. I like a little fat on my steak. My sweet, juicy steak. You are a rare delicacy.

[Melman poked his head in Alex's pen.]

Melman: Alex. Alex. Alex. Alex. Alex!

Alex: What? What?

Melman: You suck your thumb?

Alex: (sighs) What is it, Melman?

Melman: Okay, okay. (Sighs) You know how I have that bladder infection and I have to get up every two hours? Well, I got up to pee, um, and looked over at Marty's pen, which, you know, I usually don't do. I don't know why, but I did. And this time I looked over and...

Alex: What, Melman? What's going on?

Melman: It's Marty. He's gone.

Alex: Gone?! (Hits in his head) Agh! What do you mean, "gone"?

Melman: How long has he been working on this?? Marty! Marty!!

Gloria: He wouldn't fit down there.

Alex: (tries to look for Marty in the haystacks, noticing that he isn't there) Marty? Marty?! Marty! Marty!!

Gloria: This doesn't make any sense. Where would he go?

Alex: (in terror) Connecticut!!

Gloria: He wouldn't.

Melman: Oh, no! What are we going to do? We gotta-- we gotta-- I mean, we gotta-- we gotta-- we gotta call somebody!

Alex: (Gasps as he calls 911 on the phone) Hello?! Get me Missing Animals!! And hurry! We've got a lost zebra probably on the way to Connecticut by now, and we're gonna need...!!

Police: (only hears Alex roaring) Hello? Hello?

Alex: Wait a second. We can't call the people.

Police: What the...?!

Alex: (takes the phone and throws it out) They'll be really mad! It'll get Marty transferred for good. You don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Gloria: Mm-hmm. I know that's right.

Alex: We got to go after him.

Melman: Go after him?

Alex: He's not thinking straight. We gotta stop him from making the biggest mistake of his life. He's probably out there lost and cold, confused. (sadly sighs) Poor little guy.

[The Bee Gees: Stayin’ Alive]

(Alex tries to land while he grabs Melman, but he falls down)

Gloria: (bursts through the zoo wall) Melman, come on!

Melman: You know, maybe one of us should wait here in case he comes back.

Gloria: Oh, no. Not now. This is an intervention, Melman. We all got to go.

Alex: What's the fastest way to Grand Central?!

Melman: Ooh! You should take Lexington.

Gloria: Melman!!

Melman: OK. "We." We should take Lexington.

Alex: What about Park?

Melman: No, Park goes 2 ways. You can't time the lights.

Mason: I heard Tom Wolfe is speaking at Lincoln Center. (Phil does sign language) Well, of course we're going to throw poo at him.

(Marty does ice skating then falls)

Alex: I knew we should've taken Park. Are you sure this is the fastest way to Grand Central Station?

Gloria: I don't know! That's what Melman said.

Melman: Hey. Hey, you, guys. That room has some nifty little sinks you can wash up in and look! (sticks out tongue with a blue peppermint) Free mints!

Alex: This isn't a field trip, Melman! This is an urgent mission to save Marty from throwing his life away! Now, where's the train?

Melman: Ah, Here it comes. (Screaming as the train hits his head as the warning horn blares)

Gloria: What did Marty say to you? I asked you to talk to him.

Alex: I did! I did! I don't understand! He said, "Let's go." And I said, "What are you, crazy?" And he says, "I'm ten years old." And he is black with white stripes, and so then we sang and... (people screaming and running away thinking they're getting attacked)

Police Horse: What you got to do is go straight back down West 42nd.

Marty: Uh-huh.

Police Horse: It's on your left after Vanderbilt.

Marty: Okay.

Police Horse: If you hit the Chrysler Building, you've gone too far.

Marty: Uh-huh. Thanks a lot, officer.

Police Horse: Hey! Wait for the light! Freak.

Police radio: Did you say "zebra"?

Police Officer: Yeah, yeah, that's right. A zebra. Right in front of me. Can I shoot it?

Police radio: Negative.

Police Officer: Then I'm going to need some backup.

(At the subway, Alex and his gang are on inside it as Alex sees a frightened man reading his newspaper about basketball game.)

Alex: (reads a frightened man's sports paper then roars) Aw! Knicks lost again.

Melman: What are you going to do?

Conductor: Grand Central Station.

Alex: Did that just say "Grand Central Station" or "my aunt's constipation"?

Gloria: This is it.

Marty: Grand Central Station. It's grand and it's central.

Melman: Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow! (squeezes his head out of the train doors, hits the ceiling sign and destroys a man's drum set)

Alex: (more people screaming and running away) Move aside. We have an emergency here. This is an emergency situation. No need. Hey, hey. Just chill out. It's not that big of an emergency. Hey! Hey! Would you-? Hey! Aah! Ooh!

Nana: (Hitting Alex with her handbag, kicks his crotch, and sprays in his eyes) Upstairs, downstairs! How do you like that?! Yah!

Alex: Ooh! Lady, what is wrong with you?! (gets hit by her bag twice) Ow! Get a grip on yourselves, people!

Nana: (notices that lion can talk) You're a bad kitty!

Announcer: The next train to Connecticut has been…

Marty: (angrily) Dagnabbit! I missed the express! (calms himself down) Looks like I’m gonna have to take the Stamford local. Aah!

(Suddenly, Alex tackles Marty in victorious)

Alex: I got him! I've got him!

Gloria: He's got him!

Melman: He's got him! He's got him! He's got...

Nana: I got something for you! (hits Melman with her bag)

Melman: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! (crashes into a clock that reads 12:08 AM) I'm OK. I'm OK. I'm OK.

Marty: Whoa! What are you guys doing here?

Alex: Oh! I am so glad we found you.

Gloria: We were so... worried about you.

Marty: Don't worry, I'm fine, I'm fine. Look at me. I'm fine.

Alex: You're fine? Oh, he's fine. Oh, great. Hey, you hear that? Marty's fine. Ah. That's good to know. 'Cause I was just wondering, uh... (now becomes desperate, disappointed and frustrated) HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO US, MARTY?!?! I THOUGHT WE WERE YOUR FRIENDS!!!

Marty: What's the big deal?! I was coming back in the morning!!!

Alex: Don't you ever do this again!! Do you hear me?!

Gloria: Do you hear him?!

Melman: Guys? We're running out of time.

Gloria: Oh, Melman, you broke their clock?!

Alex: Do you even realize what you've put us through?! Don't you ever do this again! Don't you ever, ever do this again!!

[Grand Central Station goes dark as the Police and Firemen are called]

Gloria: Don't--Come here! (grunting and panting as she tries to remove the broken clock off Melman's head until the police came to stop them while Skipper and his agents are reading a newspaper)

Skipper: We've been ratted out, boys. (they raise their arms)

Police: Hold your fire! (points guns at the animals as firefighters use their hoses and Nana also came with a drummer)

Skipper: Cute and cuddly, boys. Cute and cuddly.

Mason: (gets caught by the police with Phil) If you have any poo, fling it now.

Marty: (Whispering) It's the Man. (Loudly) Good evening, officers!

Alex: No. No. Nope. You don't talk now. OK? You're not so good with the "putting the words together and they’re coming out good" thing. You keep it "shh"! (turns to the people) Hey! How you doing? Yeah. You know what? Everything's cool. We just, uh, had a little situation here. (The Police push an Animal Control, but he's frightened of Alex, so the Police use their shields to block the sacredly man's path) Little internal situation. Actually, my friend just went a little crazy. It happens to everybody. The city gets to us all. Just went a little cuckoo in the head.

Marty: Hey! Don't be calling me cuckoo in the head.

Alex: Just shush! I will handle this. Ooh!

Nana: (kicks Alex in between the legs) Oh, I got him!

Police: Go, go, go! (pulls Nana away) Right here, please.

Alex: Oh! Would you give a guy a break? Aw! We’re just gonna take my little friend here home and... uh, forget this ever happened. All right? No harm, no foul, right? (policemen and animal control feel shocked) Oh, no, no, no. Hey, it's cool. It's me, Alex the lion. From the zoo. Rrrr! (roars, scaring the people) Rrrr! What's the matter with them? (gets shot in the butt by a purple tranquilizer dart) Ow! Ow… (Starts to faint) Wow! Whoo! I feel really, really weird. Hey! Aw. I love you guys. (in slow motion) I love you so much...

[Sammy Davis Jr.: The Candy Man plays in Alex's dream]

News Reporter: Last night's dramatic incident in Grand Central is an example of what animal rights wackos have been shouting for years: The animals clearly don't belong in captivity. Now they are to be sent back to their natural habitat, where they will live their lives in the freedom they so clearly desire.

Alex: (sticks out his hand weakly) Hey. Little help?

Guard: (audience runs away) He's awake! He's awake, aah! (shoots more tranquilizer darts with different colors, the blue one lands in the middle of his palm revealing it to the viewers)

Woman: Do something!

Alex: Oh, man...

[Alex's The Candy Man dream plays again, but speeded up]

Alex: (his eyes glow in the dark) Ugh… Oh, my head. (Bumps his head) Oh! Ah! What the...? Wait. Where...? What...? I'm in a box! Oh, no. No, no! Not the box. Oh, no, they can't transfer me. Not me! (Whimpering) Oh, I can't breathe. I can't breathe. Darkness creeping in. I can't breathe. I can't breathe. Walls closing in around me. So alone. So alone.

Marty: (his eyes open) Alex! Alex, are you there?

Alex: Marty?

Marty: Yeah! Talk to me, buddy.

Alex: Oh, Marty! You're here!

Marty: What's going on? Are you OK?

Alex: This doesn't look good, Marty.

Gloria: (her eyes open) Alex? Marty, is that you?

Marty: Gloria!

Alex: You're here too!

Marty: I am loving the sound of your voice!

Gloria: What is going on?

Alex: We're all in crates.

Gloria: Oh, no! Wha...?

Melman: (opens his eyes) Oh… Sleeping just knocks me out.

Gloria: Melman!

Alex: Melman!

Marty: Is that Melman?

Gloria: Are you OK?

Melman: Yeah. No, I'm fine. (Yawning) I often doze off while I'm getting an MRI.

Alex: Melman, you're not getting an MRI.

Melman: CAT scan?

Alex: No! No CAT scan. It's a transfer. It's a zoo transfer!

Melman: Zoo transfer?! Oh, no. No, no, I can't be transferred. I have an appointment with Dr. Goldberg at 5:00.

Gloria: Melman. Melman! Calm down, Melman. Relax.

Marty: Melman. Calm down, Melman.

Melman: There are prescriptions that have to be filled. No other zoo could afford my medicine care! And I am not going HMO!

Marty: Take it easy, Melman. It's gonna be OK. We are going to be okizay.

Alex: No, Marty. We're not going to be okizay. Now because of you, we're ruined!

Marty: Because of me? I fail to see how this is my fault.

Gloria: You're kidding, right, Marty?

Alex: You! You ticked off the people. You bit the hand, Marty. You bit the hand. (mimicking) "I don't know who I am. I don't know who I am. I got to go find myself in the wild!" Oh, please.

Marty: Hey, hey. I did not ask you to come after me, did I?

Melman: He does have a point.

Alex: What?

Melman: I did say we should stay at the zoo, but you guys--

Alex: (cuts him off, as the view changes to outside of the boxes) Melman, just shut it! You’re the one who suggested this whole idea to him in the first place.

Gloria: Alex, leave Melman out of this, please.

Melman: Thank you, Gloria. Besides, Alex, it's not my fault that we were transferred.

Gloria: Melman, shut it. Does anybody feel nauseous?

Melman: I feel nauseous.

Alex: Melman, you always feel nauseous.

(Horn blares from the ship freighter as Kowalski tries to read the yellow paper from a box)

Skipper: Progress report.

Kowalski: It's an older code, Skipper. I can't make it out.

Skipper: Hmm... You, higher mammal.

Mason: Hmm?

Skipper: Can you read?

Mason: No. Phil can read, though. Phil! (Phil gets up from a pile of cans as Kowalski taps to the yellow paper quickly as Phil is making a sign language of what does it mean) Hmm... Ship to Kenya Wildlife Preserve, Africa!

Skipper: Africa? That ain't going to fly. Rico!

[Rico pulled out a paper clip, makes a shape that looks like a key and unlocks the crate. The penguins started to head to the captain's deck and knocked him out. They are now in control of the ship.]

Gloria: Guys!

Alex: I was the star in the greatest city on Earth!

Gloria: Guys, listen.

Alex: A king! Loved by my people!

Gloria: Okay look! Let's just be civil.

Alex: And you've ruined everything!

Gloria: Guys, guys! Quit it up there!

Marty: "Loved"? If the people loved you, it's only because they didn't know the real you!

Gloria: Don’t make me come up there. I'd get the whooping on both of y'all!

Alex: I thought I knew the real you! Oh wait, Marty. Your black-and-white stripes, they cancel each other out. You're nothing!

Gloria: Let's – let's just talk about it like adults. You’re so scary!

Melman: Stop it, stop it, stop it!

Gloria: Hey! Listen. You're not helping the situation!

Skipper: Status.

Private: It's no good, Skipper. I don't know the codes.

Skipper: [angrily] Don't give me excuses! Give me results!! Navigation. (Kowalski tries to investigate, but there's nothing) All right. Let me think. And shut him up! (Rico slaps the Captain)

Private: (Completes the Override code) I did it!

Skipper: (Alarm blaring) Let's get this tin can turned around!

[The boat begins to tilt slowly. The crates started to skid across the deck.]

Everyone: Aaahhh!!

[One by one, Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria plunged into the water and the currents started to wash them apart.]

Alex: Guys? Oh, no. Gloria! Melman! Marty!

Marty: Alex!

Alex: Marty?!

Marty: Alex!

Alex: Marty! No, wait. Come back, Marty! Don't go. (Night falls, and a wave bumps Alex's Crate as he falls into the mysterious Island that has a jungle and Alex feels scared and lonely and tries to call his friends) Marty? Melman? Gloria? Marty?! Melman?! Gloria?! Marty! Ah! Ooh! Ooh! Melman! Gloria! Ooh! Ooh! Ah! Ah! Hey, anyone! Hello!

(The next morning, Alex feels weary and tired of yelling and calling to his friends)

Alex: Marty, Melman, Gloria. Gloria, Melman, Marty. Marty, Gelman, Gloria. Marty, Melman. Morty, Morty, Gelman. Regis. Kelly. Matt, Katie, Al.

Melman: Hey! Whoa! Hey! Help! Whoa! Get me out of this thing. Somebody. Hello? Get me out of this thing right now! Hello? Somebody?

Alex: Melman!

Melman: Alex? Is that you?

Alex: Melman, I got you. Hang on! Hang on. I got you. Melman!

Melman: Ow…

Alex: I got you, buddy.

Melman: Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow!

Alex: Wait a sec, Melman.

Melman: Ow.

Alex: Wait right there. (Picks up the branch) Aha!

Melman: Alex, what are you doing?

Alex: Getting you out of the box. Relax.

Melman: Alex? (Gasps)

Alex: Giraffe, corner pocket! Here goes nothing!

Melman: Wait, wait, wait! No, come on! Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait!

Alex: Hold still!

Melman: Wait, Alex!

Alex: Hold still. Hold still. Hold still.

Melman: No, no, come on. Come on!

Alex: Here I come! (yelling)

Melman: Look! Look! Look! Look! It's Gloria. It's Gloria! Oh, hey, it is Gloria. Oh, my...

Alex: Gloria! (Knocking the crate door, but Gloria kicks the door and Alex flies!) Whaaa!!

Melman: (Screaming and crash, because his long crate broke into pieces)

Alex: Gloria! Ooh!

Gloria: Alrighty, boys, fun's over.

Alex: Gloria!

Gloria: Alex!

Marty: Whoa! (Hawaiian Five-O playing)

Gloria: Marty?!

Alex: Marty!

Marty: Yeah! All right! That's right! Whoo! Left! Left! Left. No, no, no, no, no, your left! Your left! Your left! Woohoo! Right here's good. I don't have anything on me. I'll have to get you later. (Dolphins chattering of saying goodbye) Ah-eheheh--to you too.

Alex: Marty! Marty!

("Chariots of Fire" playing)

Marty: Alex!

Alex: (Slow motion) Marty!

Marty: (Slow motion) Alex!

Alex: Marty!

Marty: Al!

Alex: Marty!

Marty: Alex?

Alex: (Angrily) MARTY!!!!

Marty: Oh, sugar, honey, iced tea!

Alex: Martin!!

Marty: Hey! Hold up! Hold up! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!

Alex: I'm going to kill you! You come here! Don't run away from me!

Marty: Whoa, wait! Wait, wait! Calm down! Calm down!

Gloria: Marty!

Alex: If you keep running, I'm going to just kill you more!

Melman: Marty!

Gloria: Oh, look at us. We're all here together. Safe and sound.

Melman: Yeah, here we are. Where exactly is "here"? (Everyone is surprised as they turn while they see many trees of Madagascar, but Melman knows it's...) San Diego.

Gloria: San Diego?

Melman: White sandy beaches, cleverly simulated natural environment, wide-open enclosures. I'm telling you, this could be the San Diego Zoo. Complete with fake rocks. (tapping a rock) Wow, that looks real.

Alex: San Diego? What could be worse than San Diego?

Marty: I don't know. This place is crackalacking! Oh, I could hang here. I could hang here.

Alex: I’m gonna kill you, Marty!

Marty: Take it easy! Take it easy!

Alex: I’m gonna strangle you!

Marty: Calm down. Calm down.

Alex: Then bury you, then dig you up and clone you and kill your clones!!

Marty: 20-second timeout. 20-second timeout.

Alex: And then I'm never talking to you again!!

Gloria: (picks up Alex to stop him from arguing with Marty) STOP IT!! Look. We're just going to find the people, get checked in, and have this mess straightened out.

Alex: Oh, great. This is just great. San Diego! Now I'll have to compete with Shamu and his smug little grin. I can't top that. Can't top it. I'm ruined! I'm done! I'm out of the business! It's your fault, Marty! You've ruined me!

Marty: Come on, Alex. Do you honestly think I intended all of this to happen? You want me to say that I'm sorry? Is that what you want? OK, I'm...

Alex: Shh!

Marty: He just shushed me.

Gloria: Marty, you've got to be just a little bit more und--

Alex : (cuts her off) Shush!

Gloria: Don't you shush me!

Alex: Do you hear that? Don't you hear that? (the others realize he's trying to listen to the music as they run into the jungle)

Marty: I hear it now.

Gloria: Where there's music, there's people.

Alex: We’ll go to the head honcho.

Melman: A sidewalk would be nice.

Gloria: Yeah, what a dump.

Alex: They should call it the San Di-lame-o Zoo. First they tell you, "Hey, we got this great open plan thing. Let animals run wild." Next thing you know, it’s flowers in your hair, everybody's hugging everybody!

Marty: This place kind of grows on you. This way, guys! Come on!

Alex: (gets hit by a branch) Ow! Ooh! (screams then cries in his hands) Aah! (his foot hits a rock) Oh, oh! Aah! (his foot pricks a thorn) Aah! What the...? (jumps through spider webs) Oh! Aah! Ew! Ew! (sputters as he tries to get the webs off himself then knocks down a tree on himself) Oh, no! Aah!!

[Gloria, Melman and Marty arrive at the part, they could see shadows from the giant leaves.]

Gloria: OK, let's make a good impression on the people. Smiles, everyone. Let's get it together. Is that the best you can do, Melman?

Melman: Oh, I'm not smiling. It's gas.

Gloria: Okay. Well, great. Let's make gas look good.

[Gloria opened up the leaves and they saw a huge small group of strange furry creatures, who are the lemurs.]

Marty: Wow!

Gloria: It's not people. It's animals.

Melman: California animals. Dude.

Marty: This is like a Puffy party!

King Julien: (singing) I like to move it, move it I like to move it, move it Ya like to

Lemurs: Move it!

King Julien: I like to move it, move it I like to move it, move it I like to move it, move it Ya like to

Lemurs: Move it!

King Julien: I like to move it, move it You like to move it, move it She like to move it, move it He like to

Lemurs: Move it!

King Julien: All girls all over the world Original King Julien 'pon yer case, man I love how all the girls that love to move their body When ya move your body, ya do Move it nice and sweet and sassy, all right

Gloria: What kind of zoo is this?

Melman: I just saw 26 blatant health code violations.

Marty: I'm loving San Diego. This place is off the chizain.

Melman: 27!

King Julien: Woman, physically fit, physically fit, physically, physically, physically fit Woman Physically fit, Physically fit...

Marty: We should've brought chips and dip!

Gloria: Wait. Where's Alex? [pulls Marty away] What happened to him? He was right behind us. Wasn't he right behind us?

Marty: I don't know where he's at, but he's missing one heck of a party.

Lemur: The foosa! The foosa! The foosa are attacking! Run for your lives! (Screaming)

Fossa: Foosa hungry. Fossa eat.

Alex: Ech! I hate spiderwebs. Yeah, thanks a lot, guys. Thanks for waiting up. Really appreciate it.

[Alex pulled away the leaves to see the Fossa.]

Alex: Hey. Hi. We just got in from New York, and we're looking for a supervisor. Because we've been sitting on that beach there for hours, and nobody's even bothered to show up. I don't know if things are… Yeah, I don't know how things are normally run around here....

[Marty, Gloria and Melman froze then they saw a spider crawling on his back. Gloria picked up a stick to whack it.[

Alex:...but there's been some sort of major screw-up, which is cool. If you could point us towards the administrative offices, we'll just uh...(before he can finish, he notices the spider crawling on his back)

Spider: Well, howdy-do.

Alex: [screaming, then roaring in slow motion by scaring the Fossa away] Spider! Spider! Spider on my back!

King Julien: Maurice, did you see that?

Maurice: He scared the fossa away.

(Alex screaming in horror as Gloria uses a stick to hit him, but the spider has finally escaped!)

Melman: Come on, Gloria. Get him.

Spider: Get it! Get it! Get it! Get it!

Melman: That's it! Catch it, Gloria! Smack it! Get it, get it! Whip it! Whip it good! Where'd it go?

Mort: King Julien, what are they? WHAT ARE THEY?!?!

King Julien: They are aliens. Savage aliens from the savage future.

Maurice: They've come to kill us. And take our women. And our precious metals.

(Lemurs gasp. Mort starts sobbing while lands on Julien's feet.)

King Julien: Get up, Mort. Do not be near the king's feet, OK? Shh! We're hiding. Be quiet, everyone. Including me. Shh! Who's making that noise? Oh, it's me again.

Melman: There it is! Get it! Come on, Gloria!

Alex: Stop it! Stop it! That's enough! Enough with the stick.

Melman: You got it. I think you got it. I think she got it.

Alex: Is it still on me? I hate spiders.

Gloria: It's OK. It's gone.

Mort: They are savages. Tonight we die. (grabs Julien's foot)

King Julien: The feet. I told you... I told you to... I told every... Didn't I tell him about the feet?

Maurice: He did tell you about the feet.

Mort: E-he.

King Julien: Wait. I have a plan.

Maurice: Really?

King Julien: I have devised a cunning test to see whether these are savage killers.

[They just push Mort out of the hiding place as the Zoo animals stare. Mort starts to become scared as he shakes in fear.]

Marty: Hi there.

Alex: Ahem! You let me handle it. (Whispering) Alex handles it. Marty does nothing.

[Alex walks up to a whimpering Mort]

Alex: [kindly] Hi there! (Mort starts crying and bursting into tears) Oh, jeez. Oh. Oh, sorry.

Melman: Oh, Alex, what'd you do?

Alex: Oh Shh! Shh! Shh! No, no, no. Stop. Stop. Shh! It's OK. It's OK. I'm just a silly... Just a silly lion. (Mort starts screaming while crying louder) Oh, jeez!

Marty: Aw, Alex!

Gloria: Oh, you poor little baby. Did that big mean lion scare you?

Mort: Mm-hmm…[muttering]

Gloria: He did? He's a big, bad old puddy tat, isn't he? Come on. Mama'll hold you. Aww, look at you.

Melman: They are cute from a reasonable distance.

Gloria: Aren't you the sweetest little thing. I just want to dunk him in my coffee.

King Julien: They are just a bunch of pansies.

Maurice: I don't know. There's still something about that one with the crazy hairdo that I find suspicious.

King Julien: Nonsense, Maurice. Come on, everybody! Let's go and meet the pansies!

[All the lemurs come out of their hiding places to meet them.]

Maurice: Presenting your royal highness, our illustrious King Julien XIII, self-proclaimed lord of the lemurs, et cetera, et cetera. Hooray, everybody.

Marty: He's got style.

Alex: What is he, like, king of the guinea pigs?

Melman: I think it's a squirrel.

King Julien: Welcome, giant pansies! Please feel free to bask in my glow!

Alex: Definitely a squirrel.

Melman: Yep. Squirrel

King Julien: We thank you with enormous gratitude for chasing away the foosa.

Gloria: The "whossa"?

King Julien: The foosa. They're always annoying us by trespassing, interrupting our parties and ripping our limbs off.

Alex: Yeah, sounds good. Look. We're just uh, we’re just trying to find out where the people are, so if you could uh...

Maurice: Oh, my. What big teeth you have. Man!

King Julian: Shame on you, Maurice! Can you not see that you have insulted the freak?! Ha-ha. You must tell me, who the heck are you?

Alex: I'm Alex. The Alex. And this is Gloria, Marty and Melman.

Maurice: And just where are you giants from, hmm?

Alex: We're from New York and uh we...

King Julien: All hail the New York giants!

Lemurs: New York giants! (Cheering)

Alex: Is there some sort of inbreeding program? Well, I say we just got to ask these bozos where the people are.

King Julien: Excuse me. We bozos have the people, of course.

Alex: Whoa!

Melman: Hey, the bozos have the people!

Alex: Oh, well, great. Good. Phew. Heh.

King Julien: They're up there.

[Julien shows Alex and the gang a Skeleton who's stuck with a parachute!]

King Julien: Don't you love the people? Not a very lively bunch, though.

Alex: Oh. Wow. So do you have any live people?

King Julien: Uh… No. Uh, only dead ones.

Maurice: I mean, if we had a lot of live people here, it wouldn't be called the wild, would it?

Marty: The wild?

Alex: Whoa. Hold up there a second, fuzzbucket. You mean, like uh, like, the "live in a mud hut, wipe yourself with a leaf" type wild?

King Julien: Who wipes? [Laughing]

Gloria: Oy vey.

King Julien: Oy vey!

Maurice: Oy vey, everybody!

Lemurs: Oy vey!

Alex: Could you excuse me for a moment? (runs back to the shore, crying) Get me out of here! We got to get out of here!! Help!!!

Gloria: (catches Alex as he's about to dive in the ocean) Alex! What are you doing?!

Alex: I'm swimming back to New York!!

Marty: Yeah, baby! We are in the wild!

Alex: I know my chances are slim, but I have to try!

Gloria: You can't swim!

Alex: I said my chances are slim!!

Melman: Aah!! Nature!!! It's all over me! Get it off! I can't see! I can't see! I can see! Aah! [dunks his head in the sand]

Gloria: Ok, look. There's obviously just been a little mistake. I’m sure the people didn't dump us here on purpose. As soon as they realize what happened, they'll come looking for us, right?

Melman: [Muffled] Yeah, right.

Marty: ♪Born free! [Babbling] I don’t know the words But we’re born free!♪♪

Gloria: You know something? I bet they're already on their way. (puts down Alex as he inhales)

[In the meantime, the boat sails to Antarctica for 2501 Miles South by the Penguins on an important mission.]

Skipper: Well, boys, it's gonna be ice-cold sushi for breakfast. (All give a high-5!) Rico. (Rico uses the wine with foam as a toast of their victory! Meanwhile in Madagascar island...)

Melman: Well, since I'm doomed to die on this forsaken island, I, Melman Mankiewicz, being of sound mind and unsound body, have divided my estate equally among the three of you. Oh… Sorry, Alex.

Marty: Hey! A latrine. Nice work, Melman. Outdoor plumbing.

Alex: No, it's not a latrine. It's a grave! You sent Melman to his grave! Are you happy?

Marty: Aw, come on. This isn't the end. This is a whole new beginning. This could be the best that's ever happened to us.

Alex: No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. This is not the best thing that's ever happened to us!

Melman: Yeah! You abused the power of the birthday wish and brought this bad luck on all of us. So why'd you tell your wish? You're not supposed to do that.

Marty: Wait a minute. I didn't wanna tell you. Remember? You guys made me tell you.

Melman: Oh, OK.

Marty: Besides, this isn't bad luck. This is good luck. Look around. There's no fences, no schedule. This place is beautiful. Baby, we were born…

Alex: OK. OK. I've had enough of this. This is your side of the island, and this is our side of the island. That is the bad side, where you can prance and skip like a magical pixie horse and do whatever the heck you wanna do all day long. And this, this is the good side for those who love New York and care about going home.

Marty: Come on.

Alex: No, no. Back! Back! Back! Back!

Gloria: You know what? This isn't good.

Marty: OK! You all have your side, and I'll have mine. And if you need me, I'll be over here, on the fun side of the island, having a good old time! A gay old time! A yay old time! A Yabba-dabba-doo old time!

Alex: That’s not the fun side, this is the fun side! This is the fun side, where we'll have a great time surviving until we go home. Whoo! I love this side. This side's the best. That side stinks! You're on the Jersey side of this cesspool!!

Marty: Wilma!!!

Melman: Well, now what do we do?

Alex: Don't worry, Melman. I have a plan to get us rescued.

[At nightfall, Alex builds a statue that looks like the Statue of Liberty]

Alex: Can't wait to see the look on Marty's face when he sees this. Ooh. Just look at him. He's helpless without us. Shut up, Spalding!

Gloria: I've been standing here for hours, man. How long do I have to pose like this?

Alex: She is finito. I defy any rescue boat within a million miles to miss this baby. When the moment is right, we will ignite the beacon of liberty and be rescued from this awful nightmare! What do you think? Pretty cool, huh? How's the liberty fire going, Melman?

Melman: Great. Idiot.

Alex: I heard that!

Melman: Ugh. Why can't we just borrow some of Marty's fire?

Alex: That's wildfire! We're not using wildfire on the Lady Liberty. Now, rub, Melman.

Melman: I've been doing... I can't. I can't. I can't do it. I ju... I can't do it! Fire. Fire. Fire! Fire! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!! Ah. Oh, my... Ah! Oh! Fire!!

Alex: Not yet! No, no! No!

Melman: Fire!

Alex: No, no! No! Not yet!

Gloria: Melman, hold still! Jump! Alex, jump! Don't worry, cats always land on their... Face? Man, what kind of cat are you?

Alex: You maniac!! You burned it up! Darn you! Darn you all to heck!

Melman: Can we go to the fun side now?

[Meanwhile in the jungle, the lemurs have gathered at an old airplane.]

Maurice: Everybody, calm down. Come on. Into your chairs. Yes. Everybody please, calm down. Let go of his tail. Separate those two, would you, please? You over here, and you over there. Everybody, Shhh... Calm down, people, OK? Ugh. Now, presenting your royal highness, the illustrious blah, blah, blah. You know, et cetera, et cetera. Hooray. Let's go.

King Julien: Now, everybody, we all have great curiosity about our guests, the New York giants. Yes, Willie?

Willie: I like them.

Mort: I like them. I like them. I liked them first. Before I even met them I liked them.

King Julien: Yes, yes.

Mort: When I saw them, I liked them right away. You hate them compared to how much I like them.

King Julien: Oh, shut up. You're so annoying!

Mort: Hee-hee-hee.

King Julien: Now, for as long as we can remember, we have been attacked and eaten by the dreaded fossa.

Lemur: The fossa! The fossa are attacking! AAAHHH!!! AAHHH!!

[Everyone all screamed and panic.]

Lemur: (Holds a book that says "To Serve Lemur") It's a cookbook! IT'S A COOKBOOK!!!!!

King Julien: Alright! Please. Please. Maurice.

Maurice: Shh! Quiet!! Come on, y'all. They're not attacking us this very instant.

(All lemurs sigh in relief)

King Julien: So my genius plan is this: We will make the New York giants our friends and keep them close. Then, with Mr. Alex protecting us, we will be safe and never have to worry about the dreaded fossa ever again!

[Everyone all agrees.]

King Julien: I thought of that! I thought of that! Yes! Me! I did.

Maurice: Hold on, hold on, everybody. Hold on. I'm just thinking now. I mean, does anyone wonder why the fossa were so scared of Mr. Alex? I mean, maybe we should be scared too. What if Mr. Alex is even worse than the fossa?! (Lemurs gasp in shock) I'm telling you, that dude just gives me the heebiedabajeebies!

King Julien: Maurice, you did not raise your hand. Therefore, your heinous comment will be stricken from the record. (Chameleon uses the typewriter) Does anyone else have the heebie-jeebies? No? Good. So shut up. When the New York giants wake up, we will make sure that they wake up in paradise. Ha-ha-ha-ha! Now, who would like a cookie?

(All lemurs cheering for a cookie. And in the meantime, Alex makes the sign of "Help!" for waiting the boat. And Marty tries to cheer up Alex for an apology)

Marty: Yo, Al. Melman and Gloria are over there having a good time. There's room on the fun side for one more.

Alex: No, thanks.

Marty: Look, I've been thinking. Maybe if you gave this place a chance, I don't know, you might even enjoy yourself.

Alex: Marty, I'm tired. I'm hungry. I just want to go home.

Marty: Could you just give it a chance? Think about it. It really isn't the fun side without you.

Melman: Shh. Shh. It's him.

Marty: Who is it?

Alex: It's the pizza man. Who the heck do you think it is?

Marty: Yes? Can I help you?

Alex: Can I come to the fun side?

Marty: Beg your pardon?

Alex: You know, I've been kind of a jerk, Marty. But I've been thinking about what you said, and I'm sorry.

Marty: Welcome to Casa del Wild! Take a load off. Hey, hey, wipe your feet.

Gloria: Alex!

Marty: Mi casa is su casa.

Alex: Very impressive.

Marty: Hey, have a drink. It's on the house.

Alex: (Drinks the water, but it's salad and he spits it!) This is seawater.

Marty: Oh, you don't swallow it. It's just temporary till the plumbing's done. Hey, y'all look hungry. How would you like some of nature's goodness?

Gloria: You have food?

Marty: The Fun Side Special, coming up. Seaweed on a stick.

Alex: Seaweed?

Marty: On a stick. Don't love it till you try it.

Melman: That's unbelievable!

Gloria: Mmm… So good.

Marty: Well, thanks. It does kind of hit the spot, doesn't it? (Alex coughs of eating seaweed, because he wants steak.) Well, maybe it could use a little lemon.

Alex: No, it's great. It's really great. Doesn't get any better than this?

Marty: Oh, but it does. Check this out.

Gloria: Wow! Would you look at that.

Alex: It's like billions and billions of helicopters.

Marty: It's a shooting star. Make a wish. Quick!

Alex: Ooh! How about a thick, juicy steak?

Marty: You know what, Alex? I promise you I'm going to find you a steak tomorrow if it kills me.

Alex: Thanks, Marty.

Melman: (Yawns) It is getting late. I guess I'm gonna... (Snores)

Gloria: I think I'm gonna hit the sack too. Sweet dreams, everyone.

(The dream appears many steaks that Alex wants them, when he grabs on of the steaks and licks it up)

Marty: Alex. (Alex accidentally licks Marty as the others are shocked) What are you doing?

Alex: 27, 28, 29, 30. Hmm. 30. 30 black and only 29 white. Looks like you're black with white stripes after all. Dilemma solved. Good night. (Pretends to sleep with his eyes open)

[From the trees, Julien and Maurice looked below at the sleeping group.]

King Julien: You see, Maurice, Mr. Alex was grooming his friend. He is clearly a tender, loving thing. How can you have the heebie-jeebies for Mr. Alex? Look at him. He's so cute and plushy.

Maurice: I don't think he was grooming him, Julien. Look more like he was tasting him to me.

King Julien: Suit yourself, no matter. I don't care. Soon we will put my excellent plan to action. All we have to do is wait until they are deep in their sleep... [a long pause] How long is this going to take?! (Alex and his gang thought there are lemurs, but they see nothing. So they have to go to sleep again.)

[In Antarctica, the penguins stand at the cold breeze, finding Antarctica to be inhospitable. Private turns to his brothers.]

Private: Well, this sucks.

[Cut to black of the next morning]

King Julien: Wake up, Mr. Alex. Wake up, Mr. Alex. Rise and shining. Wakey-waking, Mr. Alex! (Loudly) WAKE UP!! ALEX!!! (Alex muffled gasp) You suck your thumb?

Alex: AAH!

Everyone but Alex: AAH!

Everyone: AAAAHH!!

[Shocked, the zoo animals get up.]

Alex: Where are we? What the heck is going on?

King Julien: Take it easy.

Alex: What is this?

Melman: Who built a forest?

King Julien: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Don't be alarmed, giant freaks! While you were asleep, we simply took you to our little corner of heaven. Welcome to Madagascar.

Marty: Mada-who-ah?

Gloria: What?

King Julien: No, not who-hah. Ascar.

[The zoo animals stare from the open view of Madagascar.]

Alex: Marty. It's...

Marty: It's just like my mural back at the zoo.

Gloria: Oh, no, fella, that is the real deal right there.

King Julien: Look at that, that's not a bad view.

Alex: I mean, that's the thing that you were always looking at, but it's actually there. I mean, that's like the real version of your...

Marty: Hey, how about once around the park? Let's get our blood pumping, get those lungs breathing all this fresh air! Who's with me?!

Alex: Ah, naw. I really, I don't think I could... You're it!

Marty: Hey! Want to play around? Ho! Hey!

Alex: Ha-ha! Oof!

Marty: Got you there! Ha-ha!

Alex: Come here! Ha-ha-ha!

Marty: You’re it!

Alex: (Chuckles) Hey, hey, hey!

Marty: Hey, stop that! Hey, you’re crazy!

Alex: OK, Marty, I'm it. I'm it. I'm it. You win. (Groans in exhaustion)

Marty: Come on, Alex, get in the groove.

Alex: I haven't eaten in two days. My blood sugar's real low. I just don't have the energy.

Marty: I don't think that's your problem. First of all, that's not how you run in the wild. Let's go, man. Put the rubber to the road! You just have to let out that inner lion. Now, who's the cat?

Alex: Marty, I really don't...

Marty: You are, that's who. Come on! Here we go! That's it. Now let's build up some steam! You the cat. You the cat. You the cat. You the cat. You the cat. Whoo! Whoo!

Alex: Alright. Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? Who's the cat? (His eyes changed of being crazy) I'M THE CAT!! (Zooms against Marty) Surprise!

Marty: Yahhh!! (Crashes with Alex)

Alex: Hoo! You're it! You're it! Can't juke the cat. Cat's too quick! Whoo! I feel like a mile-high pastrami on rye on the fly from the deli in the sky! Roar! Let's go wild!

Marty: Now you're talking!

(Alex and Marty are now doing the Tarzan Yell as they enter to the wild party.)

Alex: Whoo! Man! I feel, ha-ha-ha-ha, different! Noogie, noogie, noogie. Noogie, noogie, noogie! Whoo! Kind of charged up or something. Hoo!

Gloria: Ah, Marty, Marty, Marty! Like you said, baby.

Alex: It's Crackalacking. Ain't that right, Melman? Whoo!

Melman: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. I'm in heaven.

King Julien: You see, Maurice, Alex is now our friend and the fossas are nowhere to be seen. It could be said that my plan is working in a very good working kind of way.

Alex: Yeah!

Marty: Alex. You got to try some of this.

(Alex spits the pineapple to King Julien)

Alex: I feel good. Feel like a king again!

King Julien: (Throws the pineapple to Maurice) King?

Marty: Yeah! You should see his act. Come on, Alex, why don't you show him some of your act?

Alex: (Chuckles) Oh. No, I really don't think I could... OK.

[Moments later....]

Marty: Ladies and gentlemen, primates of all ages. The wild proudly presents: The king!

Marty & Alex: Alex the lion!

Alex: (roars) Ahhhh!

Marty: E flat, fellas.

(Fanfare playing)

Marty: Yeah! The king is in the house!

King Julien: See, if he is the king, then where is his crown? I've got a crown. Got a very nice one! And it's here on my head! Look at it! Have I got it on?

[From the rocks, the fossa approached ready to eat the lemurs again, but they are surprised of seeing Alex.]

Marty: Do the roar, man. Do the roar! [Alex no longer use his normal roar, so instead, he uses the real roar]

[Frightened, the fossa ran away again.]

Marty: Wow. I've never heard that one before. Yeah! Go wild, man! Come on! Break out the wave!

[Lemurs cheer. Since Alex hasn't eaten for along time, he thought the lemurs look like steaks to him. His claws show up and he bit Marty on the butt as Marty screams. Everyone became shocked.]

Marty: Excuse me. You're biting my butt!

Alex: No, I'm not.

Marty: Yes, you are.

Alex: (Spits)

Gloria: Alex, what did you do?

Marty: You just bit me in the butt!

Alex: No. I didn't. Did I?

Melman: You kind of did.

Marty: He just bit me on the butt. What the heck is wrong with you?

Alex: I... Oh! Uh...

Marty: Why'd you bite me?

Maurice: [coming out of the crowd] Man, it's because you are his dinner.

Marty: What!?

Gloria: Excuse me?

Melman: That's dumb.

King Julien: Come, come, Maurice. What is a simple bite on the buttocks among friends? Here, give me a nibble.

Maurice: [pushing Julien away] The party is over, Julien. Your brilliant plan has failed.

Marty: What are you talking about?

Maurice: Your friend here is what we call a deluxe-model hunting and eating machine. And he eats steak... which is you.

Gloria: Get out of here.

[Julien thinks for a moment.]

King Julien: Okey-dokey, Maurice, I admit it. The plan failed. All is lost! We're all doomed! The fossas will come back and gobble us with their mouths! Because... we are all steak.

Mort: I'm steak! Me, me, me, me, me, me, me!

Maurice: Mr. Alex cannot stay here. He belongs with his own kind [Alex's eyes dilate and sees everyone becoming steak once again for his hunger] on the fossa side of the island.

King Julien: By the power vested in me, by the law of the jungle, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah... Be gone!!

Marty: What? Come on, do I look like a steak to you?

Alex: Yeah!

Marty: See, I told you I don't look like a... Wait, wait, ...What did you say?

Alex: Oh, yeah!

[The lemurs and the zoo animals get scared.]

Mort: He's going savage....

King Julien: Run for your lives!!

[Everyone ran away.]

Gloria: Marty, run!

Marty: Aah!!

(The Fanfare of National Geographic plays as Alex is preparing to eat Marty once again, but Maurice throws a coconut to stop Alex!)

King Julien: A bullseye. Excellent shot, Maurice.

Maurice: Thank you.

Alex: Marty? I'm so sorry, Marty. What is wrong with me?! Ow. Oh, no. What have I done? It's true. I'm a monster. I got to get out of here.

("What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong plays as Alex and his gang are going separate ways)

Marty: What have I done? This is a nightmare! And it's all my fault. Now, because of me, we've lost Alex.

Melman: Well, what are we going to do?

Gloria: We'll find a way to help him. That's what we'll do.

Melman: Oh! OK.

Gloria: Come on, we are New Yorkers, right?

Marty: Yeah.

Gloria: We're tough. We're gritty.

Marty: Yeah!

Gloria: We're adaptable!

Marty: Yeah!!

Gloria: And we are not going to lay down like a bunch of Melmans!

Melman: No, we're not. Oh. Gloria.

Gloria: That was not me, OK? That was the boat. The boat!

Marty: The boat? The boat's come back for us! Come on, guys, we got to flag it down.

[Marty Melman and Gloria race to the beach where they saw the boat,]

Marty:: There it is!

Melman: Hey, over here!

Gloria: Over here!

Marty: Over here! Over here! Yo! Yo! Yo!

Gloria: Melman, give me a lift. Hurry up! Lift me up!

Marty: Help! Help! Help!

Melman: Oh, my neck. My neck. My neck. You guys. Over here!

Gloria: Over here! Melman! Steady. This way!

Marty: Over here!

Melman: You have no idea how much this hurts.

Marty: Hey, boat! We're over here!

Gloria: Look! It's turning! It's coming back! It's coming back! It's coming back!

Melman: Yes! This way! Come on! Come on, baby! WHOO!! Yes, you guys!

Marty: You guys flag down that boat. I’ll go get Alex.

Gloria: [stopping Marty] Whoa! Hold on there. You cannot go back there by yourself.

Marty: Aw, come on. I know Alex. He hears we're rescued, he'll snap right out of it.

Melman: The people are coming. They can help us.

Gloria: Melman's right. The people will know what to do. Now, come on. We got to flag down that boat.

[The penguins land on the beach.]

Skipper: Now, this is more like it.

Gloria: You?! Oh, ma... Where are the people?

Skipper: We killed them and ate their livers. [Gloria looks shocked] Got you, didn't I? Just kidding, doll, the people are fine. They're on a slow lifeboat to China. Hey, I know you two. Where's that psychotic lion and our monochromatic friend?

Melman: Marty? He's right...[they realized Marty was gone] Where did he go? He was right behind us.

Gloria: (groans) He went back for Alex. He's going to get himself killed!

Skipper: Well, boys, our monochromatic friend's in danger. Looks like we have a job to do. Captain's log: Embarking into hostile environment. Kowalski. We'll need to win hearts and the minds of the natives. Rico. We'll need special tactical equipment. We're gonna face extreme peril. Private probably won't survive.

Marty: Alex! Come out, Alex! The boat's here! We can go home!

Zoo Patrons: Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex!

Marty: Alex! Alex.

Alex: Marty?

Marty: Snap out of it, Alex. The boat came back. We can get out of here. We can go back to civilization, and everything will be just like it used to be.

Alex: Stay back. Please. I'm a monster.

Marty: Alex, you're no monster. You're my friend. We're a team. You and me, remember?

[Alex tried to attack Marty but the zebra scuttle back away from the crazed lion.]

Alex: I don't want to hurt you.

Marty: Alex. I ain't leaving without you. Alex? I'm thinking of a song. It's a wonderful song. I'm sure you're familiar with it. ♪ Start spreadin' the news I'm leaving today We are a great big part of it ♪ Come on, you know the words. Two little words. Please don't make me sing this by myself. You really don't want to hear me sing this by myself.

[The fossa appeared from above the rocks]

Marty: Uh, Alex? Could you come out here for a minute? Hey, Alex, a l-l-little help. AAH!!! HELP ME!!! ALEX!! HEEEELLLPPP!!!!!!! Help me!! Anybody, help me!! Somebody!! (The Foosas are using salt on Marty's Butt) Ah! HEEEELLLPPP!!!!!!!

(As the Fossa made a dog pile to eat Marty, Melman is swinging on a vine while doing a Tarzan Yell to save Marty.)

Marty: Melman?

Melman: That's right, baby. (Both crash into the rock)

Gloria: Run!

Marty: What's the plan?

Gloria: This is the plan!

Fossa: Fossa hungry. Fossa eat.

Marty: This is the plan?!

Skipper: Fossa halt!

Fossa: Huh? (Skipper fires the gun of the red light) Ooh. Fossa aaahh. Fossa ooh. Fossa aaahh.

Private: Come and get it!

Fossa: Fossa-Huh?

Gloria: Take that!

Fossa: Fossa ow!

Private: There's too many of them, Skipper.

Skipper: It's been a real pleasure serving with you boys.

(Just then, they hear Alex roaring for preparing to trick the Fossa)

Marty: Alex?

Alex: That's my kill! Mine. Alex hungry. Alex eat. (Unleashes his claws) Psst! It's showtime. Thanks for not giving up on me, Marty.

Marty: Man, you almost gave me a heart attack. You can't just come sneak up on me. Just because you're a lion... (Muffled) Let go of me. Let go of me.

Alex: Shh! We're getting out of here. Guys, just go with me on this. Like I said, it's showtime. Rrr! Mine! My kill! Rrahh! They're all mine! (Roars as his gang start to scream)

Gloria: Aah! It's the king of the beasts! Oh, no! Aah!

Marty: Don't eat me, Mr. Lion!

Melman: He's scary!

Alex: Fear me! Savagery beyond comprehension!

Marty: I am far too young to die!

Melman: You're a monster! A monster, I say!

Alex: And, you!

Fossa: Me?!

Gloria: Oh, you want some of this? (Grunts) You better run for your lives!

Marty: Somebody call a cop!

Melman: He's psychotic!

Alex: This is my territory!! Understand?! I never, ever want to see you on my turf again! [Roaring to scare all Fossas] Boo.

Marty: Yeah! You the cat!

Gloria: Got my boy back!

King Julien: Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! I did it! Give me some love! The plan worked! The plan worked! I'm very clever! I'm the one, baby! Come on. Time to robot! I am very clever king. I am super genius. I am robot king of the monkey things. Compute, compute.

Alex: So, what's for lunch?

Skipper: Close those eyes.

Alex: Why do I have to close my eyes?

Skipper: Do it.

Alex: Yeah. They're closed.

Skipper: Tighter.

Alex: Yes, sir.

Skipper: No peeking.

Alex: Alright. They're closed.

Skipper: Rico.

Rico: Hai.

Skipper: Open that hatch.

Alex: Aah…

Skipper: Fire in the hole. Now chew. Chew like you mean it. Savor it.

Alex: Mmm… Mmm.

Marty: And?

Gloria: Well?

Melman: Pretty good, right?

King Julien: There's always Plan B.

Mort: Ha-ha-ha.

Alex: Mmm. Mmm! This is better than steak! I love it. I love it!

Skipper: The kitty loves the fishy.

Marty: Well, I propose a toast. Now, he may be a pain in the butt at times... And trust me, I know. But this cat proved to me without a doubt that his heart is bigger than his stomach. To Alex.

Everyone: To Alex!

King Julien: Enough! Stop it!

Marty: Well, what do you guys think? Should we head back to New York?

Alex: I don't know, Marty. I mean, this is your dream. You sure you want to leave?

Marty: I don't care where we are. As long as we're together, it doesn't matter to me.

Alex: Well, in that case... Yo. Rico. I'll take 300 orders to go.

Rico: Hai.

King Julien: Yes, yes. But before you leave, I have an announcement to make. So shut up, everyone, please. Thank you. After much deep and profound brain things inside my head, I have decided to thank you for bringing peace to our home. And to make you feel good, I'm gonna give you this lovely parting gift.

Alex: No, I couldn't. Really, I can't take your crown.

King Julien: That's OK, I've got a bigger crown. It's got a gecko on it. Look at him shake. Go, Stevie, go!

Alex: Bye, little fuzzbuckets!

Gloria: Thanks for everything!

Marty: Bye!

Alex: So long!

King Julien: Okay, bye-bye, now.

Marty: Arrivederci.

King Julien: Bye-bye.

Maurice: Toodle-oo!

Mort: Bye! Goodbye!

King Julien: See you later, crocodile. Maurice, my arm is tired. Wave it for me. Faster, you naughty little monkey!

Alex: You know, by the time we get to New York, it’s gonna be the middle of winter. So I was just thinking, why rush? Maybe we could make a few side stops along the way?

Marty: Maybe Paris.

Gloria: Ooh! You just read my mind.

Alex: I was thinking Spain.

Marty: Yeah. Run with the bulls.

Gloria: What about Fiji?

Melman: Ooh! Canada. Can we? Cheap meds. Eh?

Alex: You know, I wouldn't even mind coming back here sometime.

Melman: Yeah, I could do that.

Gloria: You could say that again.

Private: Skipper, don't you think we should tell them that the boat's out of gas?

Skipper: Nah. Just smile and wave, boys. Smile and wave.
