Caesar has forbidden you|its utterance in perpetuity.

An ape may say no to a human...

but a human may never|again say no to an ape.

Tell him you're sorry and go home|while you've still got a home to go to.

I'll put in a good word|for you with Caesar.

General Aldo, I'm... I'm sorry.

The writing you destroyed|was by Caesar's son.

I did not want you to|suffer Caesar's anger!

What do I care for Caesar's anger?

Let me give you a taste of mine!

Grab him!

Stop, Teacher!|Grab him!


Grab him.|Grab the teacher!

Grab him

Stop, Teacher!|Grab him!


Grab him.|Grab the teacher!

Stop! Stop!

We'll teach the teacher a lesson.

Throw him in the corral,|where all humans belong.

I said stop, Aldo.

He broke the law. With his own mouth,|he broke the first law.

I am the law.|What has he done?

Caesar, I was there.

Teacher only reverted|to type under provocation.

He spoke like a slave master|in the old days of our servitude..

when we were conditioned|to mechanical obedience.

He uttered a negative imperative.

Could you put that into words...

which even Caesar could understand?

Um, he said, "No, Aldo. No."

General Aldo deliberately|tore up a writing exercise...

written especially for me|by Caesar's son.

Teacher, you're old enough|to be well aware that "no"...

is the one word a human|may never say to an ape...

because apes once|heard it said to them...

a hundred times a day by humans.

Yes, I am old enough.

The schoolroom was wrecked.|- The class is ended.

The schoolroom is closed!|Now we go back to riding horses!


You and your friends...

will return to the schoolroom...

and put it back in order.

Abe, no gorilla|is to be dismissed..

until everything is back in its place.|- Yes, Caesar.

Father, since there won't be|any more school today...
