Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Synopsis: After the events of "Ice Age: The Meltdown", life begins to change for Manny and his friends: Scrat is still on the hunt to hold onto his beloved acorn, while finding a possible romance in a female sabre-toothed squirrel named Scratte. Manny and Ellie, having since become an item, are expecting a baby, which leaves Manny anxious to ensure that everything is perfect for when his baby arrives. Diego is fed up with being treated like a house-cat and ponders the notion that he is becoming too laid-back. Sid begins to wish for a family of his own, and so steals some dinosaur eggs which leads to Sid ending up in a strange underground world where his herd must rescue him, while dodging dinosaurs and facing danger left and right, and meeting up with a one-eyed weasel known as Buck who hunts dinosaurs intently.

Okay, calm down. Calm down.

I'm good at making friends.

I'll make my own herd.

That's what I'll do!

Hey! "Me amigo's. Que pasa?"

Well, at least you still got your looks.

Ohh great!

Anybody here?


Oh poor guys, I know what

it's like to feel abandoned

Don't worry,

you're not alone anymore.

There you go.

Stay here! You take care of your brother

now, momma's coming right back.

Momma's coming, baby!

I got you.

What did I just tell you kids?

Ohh, thank you, thank you,

thank you!

Bad eggs, rotten eggs. A heart

attack you almost gave me.

Ohh I'm sorry darling, it's

just that I love you so much.


I'd like to present, Eggbert,

Shelly and Yoko.

Sid, whatever you're doing.

It's a bad idea!

Shh! My kids will hear you.

They're not your kids,

Sid. Take them back.

- You're not meant to be a parent.

- Why not?

First sign:

someone else's eggs.

Second sign:
one of them

almost became an omelet.

Sid, someone must be

worried sick looking for them.

No, they were underground, in ice.

If it wasn't for me they'd be...

Egg sickles.

Sid, I know what your going through.

You're gonna have a family too someday.

You gonna meet a nice girl, with... with low

standards, no real options, or sense of smell...

- What Manny means to say is...

- No, I get it. I'll take them back.

You have your family and I'm

better off alone. By myself.

A fortress of solitude.

In the ice, for ever!

Alone, lonely loner..

- That's a lot of aloners.

- Precisely!

- Sid, wait.

- No, no, it's ok.

He'll bounce back, it's one of

the advantages of being Sid.

Why should I take you back.

I love kids.

I'm responsible, loving, nurturing.

What do you think?

I knew you would agree.

Oh oh, don't cry!

I'll find a dry place.

Let me just dry you off.
