OK, lead the way, Mr Big...

Didn't get the name.

- Manfred.

- Manfred? Yuck.

How about Manny the Moody Mammoth?

Or Manny the Melancholy... Manny the...

Stop following me.

OK, so you've got issues. You won't

even know I'm here. I'll just zip the lip.

Look at the cute little baby, Diego.

- Isn't it nice he'll be joining us for breaktast?

- It wouldn't be breaktast without him.

Especially since his daddy wiped out half

our pack and wears our skin to keep warm.

An eye for an eye, don't you think?

Let's show him what happens

when he messes with sabres.

Alert the troops. We attack at dawn.

And, Diego, bring me that baby alive.

If I'm gonna enjoy my revenge,

I want it to be fresh.

Phew. I'm wiped out.

- That's your shelter?

- You're a big guy. You got a lotta wood.

- I'm a little guy.

- You got half a stick.

But with my little stick and my highly

evolved brain, I shall create fire.


We'll see if brains triumph

over brawn tonight. Now, won't we?

Think I saw a spark.

Any chance I could squeeze

in there with you, Manny, ol' pal?

Isn't there someone else you can annoy?

Friends? Family? Poisonous reptiles?

My family abandoned me.

They just kinda migrated without me.

You should see what they did last year.

They woke up early and

tied my hands and feet

and they gagged me with a fieldmouse,

covered their tracks, went

through water so I'd lose their scent,

and... who needs 'em, anyway?

So what about you? You have family?

OK, you're tired. I see.

We'll talk more in the morning.

Manfred? Manfred?

Could you scooch over a drop?

Come on. Nobody falls asleep that fast.


There's Diego. Fall back.

- Where's the baby?

- I lost it over the falls.

You lost it?

- I want that baby, Diego.

- I'll get it.

You'd better, unless you want to
