Here is the scoop on the best Jungle Cruise quotes!
Don’t miss Disney’s Jungle Cruise in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access on July 30, 2021.
1. “Hello. I just wanted you to know this is a Nguni assegai. It’s been mislabeled as ‘Zulu.'” -Lily
Dr. Lily Houghton struggles to be taken seriously in the professional world simply because she is a woman. In spite of these challenges, she is incredibly smart and capable.
Lily sneaks into an office to steal an artifact she needs for her adventure, but is soon caught by other scientists. She picks up the closest weapon, a spear, to defend herself. She also notices it is mislabeled and corrects the scientists.
Not only does she prove herself by knowing about the spear, but she also uses the weapon to fight and escape!
2. “The rocks you see here in the river are sandstone, but some people just take them for granite. It’s one of my boulder attractions.”
Frank Wolff loves his boat, his cat, and puns! He is also passionate about the Amazon River, so he offers guided tours to travelers.
During his tours, he tells visitors all about the jungle and the river, but his narration includes lots of puns. The tourists grow tired of the puns, but thankfully Frank never does!
3. “How you doing, Pants?” -Frank
Frank is shocked to see Lily, a woman, wearing pants. Since the proper outfit for a lady in the early 1900’s involves a skirt, Lily defies societal norms by wearing pants.
Throughout their adventure, Frank pokes fun at Lily by simply calling her Pants. It is a surprisingly cute nickname and further established Frank and Lily’s playful relationship.
4. “My eyeballs are sweating.” -Macgregor
Macgregor is Lily’s brother and reluctant assistant on her expeditions. He also delivers some of the best Jungle Cruise quotes of the entire movie!
For their trip along the river, he packs lots of clothes and accessories and things that are not ideal for a tropical climate. After traveling in the heat and humidity, Macgregor is sweaty and miserable.
He humorously declares, “My eyeballs are sweating!”
5. “Remember, it’s only a scam if you fall for it.” -Frank
Frank makes a living off of scamming tourists, but when Lily falls for one of his plans she feels hurt. He tries comforting her by saying, “It’s only a scam if you fall for it” but she is still upset.
Frank may be a jungle expert, but he needs some help when it comes to friendship.
6. “It could be that one person’s world enough.” -Lily
Once Lily and Frank admit their feelings for each other, she tries convincing him to be with her after their adventure ends. One of the most memorable Jungle Cruise quotes is this saying about one person being “world enough.”
7. “What do you think, Muscles? Will you sacrifice your petal for her?” -Prince Joachim
Prince Joachim has Frank and Lily captive, but he is willing to let one of them have a petal from the magical tree. The prince is an enjoyable villain because he is so animated and silly.
Giving Frank a funny nickname like “Muscles” makes him less intimidating as a villain.
8. “You are the most infuriating man I’ve ever met.” -Lily
Lily reiterates that Frank is infuriating to her, but this time she is too late. Frank already sacrificed himself to save Lily, so now they can’t be together.
Grateful for his courage, Lily is still upset with him. This heartbreaking scene is made more sad when she once again calls him infuriating.
9. “You’re both my world!” -Macgregor
After Lily saves Frank and the two finally share a kiss, Macgregor joins in on the celebration. He wraps them both in a hug and says, “You’re both my world!”
This sweet moment is made better by Macgregor joining in on Lily and Frank’s embrace. He adds a sense of humor to a heartwarming scene, and audiences love it!
10. “Gentlemen, you can take your invitation, and you can shove it up your association.” -Macgregor
Only after their adventure and discovery is Lily invited to join an association of scientists. Declining the invitation on behalf of his sister, Macgregor does not hold back.
He happily tells the association exactly what he thinks of them, and even makes a pun that would make Frank proud!
Disney’s Jungle Cruise has something for everyone! With hilarious jokes, beautiful scenery, and lots of action, Jungle Cruise is an adventure the whole family will enjoy.
