The Lion King (1994)
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: Do you know what we do to kings who step out of their kingdom?
Young Simba: Puh. You can't do anything to me.
Zazu: Uhh... technically, they can. We are on their land.
Young Simba: But Zazu, you told me they're nothing but slobbering mangy stupid poachers.
Zazu: Ix-nay on the oopid-stay...
Banzai: Who're you callin' "oopid-stay?"
Zazu: Oh, my, my, my. Look at the sun. It's time to go!

Young Simba: Hey! Why don't you pick on somebody your own size?
Shenzi: Like... you?
Young Simba: Oops.

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.
Banzai: Mufasa!
Shenzi: Ooooh! Do it again!
Banzai: Mufasa!
Shenzi: Ooooh!
Banzai: Mufasa, Mufasa, Mufasa!
Shenzi: Ooooh!
[breaks into laughter]
Shenzi: And it tingles me!
Scar: I'm *surrounded* by idiots.

Banzai: Yeah, be prepared! We'll be prepared... for what?
Scar: For the death of the king!
Banzai: Why? Is he sick?
Scar: No, fool, we're going to kill him. And Simba, too.
Shenzi: Hey, great idea! Who needs a king?
Banzai, Shenzi: [singing and dancing around Ed] No king, no king, la la la la la la...
Scar: Idiots! There will *be* a king!
Banzai: Hey, but you said that...
Scar: *I* will be king. Stick with me, and you'll never go hungry again!
Banzai, Shenzi: Yeah, all right! Long live the king!
[other hyenas join in]
Banzai, Shenzi: Long live the king! Long live the king!

Banzai: But we gotta finish the job.
Shenzi: Well, he's as good as dead out there anyway. And *if* he comes back, we'll kill him.
Banzai: [calling out to Simba] Yeah! You hear that? If you ever come back, we'll kill ya!

Banzai: Hey, Boss!
Scar: Oh, what is it this time?
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.

Shenzi: What's the hurry? We'd love you to stick around for dinner.
Banzai: Yeah. We could have whatever's "lion" around.
Shenzi: Oh wait, wait, wait. I got one, I got one. Make mine a "cub" sandwich. Whatcha think?
[all laugh]
Shenzi: [Ed points]
Shenzi: What, Ed?
Banzai: Hey, did we order this dinner to go?
Shenzi: No, why?
Banzai: 'Cause THERE IT GOES!

Shenzi: Hey. There he goes. There he goes.
Banzai: So go get him.
Shenzi: There ain't no way I'm going in there. What, you want me to come out there looking like you? Cactus-Butt?

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: [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: Man, I *hate* lions!
Shenzi: [Grumbles] So pushy...
Banzai: And hairy...
Shenzi: [Smiles] Stinky...
Banzai: [Grins] And man are they...
Banzai, Shenzi: [Elongated use of the 'u'] U-GLY!
[both laugh hysterically]

Shenzi: Well, well, well, Banzai, what have we got here?
Banzai: Hmm, I don't know Shenzi uh, what do you think Ed?
Ed the Hyena: Oo ehehe, oh hahahaha
Banzai: Yeah, just what I was thinking, a trio of trespassers.
Zazu: And quite by accident let me assure you...
Shenzi: Whoa, whoa, wait wait. I know you, you're Mufasa's little stooge.
Zazu: I madame, am the king's majordomo.
Banzai: And that would make you...?
Young Simba: The future King!
Shenzi: Do you know what we do to kings who step out of their kingdom?
Young Simba: Puh, you can't do anything to me.
Zazu: Uh-uh, technically they can, we are on their land.
Young Simba: But Zazu, you told me they are nothing but slobbery, mangy stupid poachers.
Zazu: Ix-nay on the upid-stay...
Banzai: Who you callin' upid-stay?

Shenzi: What's the hurry? We'd looove you to stick around for dinner.
Banzai: Yeaaaah! We could have whatever's... "lion" around!. Get it? Lion around!
Shenzi: Oh wait, wait, wait. I got one, I got one. Make mine a "cub" sandwich. Whatcha think?

The Lion King 3 (2004) (V)
Shenzi: [Timon is singing] Oh, look, it's dinner and a show!
Banzai: And I thought beans were the only musical food!

Timon: Waaait, wait, wait, wait. Hold on a second.
Pumbaa: Uh, Timon? What are you doin'?
Timon: Shenzi Marie Predatora Veldetta Jacquelina Hyena... . would you do me the honor of becoming... . my bride?
Shenzi: I don't think so!
Timon: Shenzi Marie, please. I know what you're thinking: "We're too different." "It'll never work." "What will the children look like?"
Shenzi: Ooh, that violates so many laws of nature.
Timon: Listen to me! The problems of a couple of wacky kids like us don't amount to hill of termites in this nutty circle-of-life thing. And so I ask you: If not now, when? If not me, who? I'm lonely.
Pumbaa: Can I be your best man?
Banzai: I say we skip the wedding, and go straight to the buffet!

Shenzi: For your last meal, you're gonna eat those words.

Banzai: Look at them scramble.
Shenzi: That's just how I like them: scrambled, and a little runny.

Timon: [terrified] Hy... hy... hy...
Shenzi: Well "Hi" to you too!
Shenzi: [smacks Timon, who goes rolling down a hill and bumps into Uncle Max]
Uncle Max: This no time for horseplay Timon! You're suppose to be up there looking out for...
[sees the hyenas approaching]
Uncle Max: HYENAS!
