These “Lion King” quotes are memorable lines from one of Disney’s greatest masterpieces. Along with the well-constructed plot came great dialogue. These words brought the characters’ personalities to life and added humor to the script.

  1. “Let me get this straight. You know her. She knows you. But she wants to eat him. And everybody's okay with this?” Timon utters this “Lion King” quote after he meets Nala, Simba’s old friend. Nala mistook Timon for a light snack before Simba intervened.

  2. "A king's time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, Simba, the sun will set on my time here, and will rise with you as the new king."  – This “Lion King” quote comes from Mufasa, during his speech to Simba early in the movie. Unfortunately, the proud papa lion doesn’t realize that his end is closer than expected.

  3. “Well, as far as brains go, I got the lion's share. But, when it comes to brute strength... I'm afraid I'm at the shallow end of the gene pool.” Scar may have been an evil mastermind, but even he had his limits. In this “Lion King” quote, Scar reveals his strengths and weaknesses as he compares himself to Mufasa.

  4. “You mean a bunch of royal dead guys are watching us?” Even animals have their own sacred beliefs. In this “Lion King” quote, Timon summarizes Simba’s view of constellations. Simba liked to believe that his father was in the night sky, watching over him.

  5. “Slimy... yet satisfying.” When it comes to dietary habits, Timon and Pumbaa have their own special tastes. With this “Lion King” quote, Timon describes the texture of his favorite bugs. Simba learns to love them – or, at least, tolerate the taste.

  6. “Run away Simba. Run away and never return.” These are Scar’s words to Simba after he blames the young cub for Mufasa’s death. Later on in the movie, Simba repeats the same words to Scar.
