Negative. No sign.

Wait a second. I think I got him.

You know... could put somebody's eye out

with that thing.

We airlifted out the last passengers,

Ace. We're heading out.

What about the animal cargo?!

Don't worry. It's just one little

raccoon. If I were you, I'd turn back.

If you were me, then I'd be you!

And I'd use your body to get to the top!

You can't stop me,

no matter who you are!




Hungry, fella?

That should hold you for a while.

That's okay, Spike.

There's nothing more we can do.

Look, Spike!

Do not fret, my woodland friend.

Your life is in the hands

of Ace Ventura...

...Pet Detective.

Whatever you do...

...don't look down.

Hang on!

Hang on, little buddy!

I got you!

I think I got you!

Maybe not.

You're slipping!

Don't let go!

My goodness.


That was quite a shock.

It's extremely nice to meet you.

My name is Fulton Greenwall...

...and I am looking for an Ace Ventura.

No man here...

...carries with him...

...a label.


Oh, yes.

No names. How silly of me.

He's an American.

We are all children...

...of the same life force.

Yes, of course we are.

He bends over and speaks from his rear.

Oh, him.

Right this way.

He came to us a broken man.

He had lost the will

to sustain his existence.

Yes, I heard about that unfortunate

accident with the raccoon.

It was terrible for him.

But the life force...

...once again...

...smiled upon him.

He's now... peace.

I will wait here.

I must apologize.

Quite. Well, no harm done.

Let me introduce myself.

My name is Fulton Greenwall,

and I'm here to employ your services... the retrieval of a lost animal.

Can you help us?

Your request is like your intestine.


...and dangerous.

We can pay handsomely.

I am now a child of light.

Your earthly money

holds no appeal to me.

Twenty thousand dollars.



I cannot.

For I am sorely needed... the ashram.

May I interject?

We're short of space.

And it's important for you

to use your talents.

Let me help you pack.

But I have yet to attain

omnipresent super-galactic oneness.


There it is!

You've just attained it.

I have?

Just now.

You are one!

I can see it in your eyes.

You're more one than anyone.

What about my medallion

of spiritual accomplishment?

Take mine.

This took you 80 years to achieve!

That's okay.

I don't like it anymore. Really.

In light of this personal sacrifice

you've made...

...I have no choice...

...but to take the case.


I'll tell the others.


Break it to them gently.

I've never seen them

act like that before.

Denial can be an ugly thing.

We should go, Mr. Ventura.

I've arranged a plane.

I'll meet you at the bottom.

There's still one more thing

I must do before I go.

Isn't this incredible?

It's going to be some kind of record!

"Everyone loves a Slinky

"You got to get a Slinky."

Go, Slinky, go!

Oh, man!

Can you believe it?

It was right there!

Can I do it one more time?

Forgive me, but if we don't hurry,

we might miss the plane.

Of course.

How selfish of me.

Let's do all the things

that you want to do.

Canadian moose during mating season.

And now...

...a yak.


Yes, I have one right here!

It's bulky,

but I consider it a carry-on.


Oh, I see!

If we can get back to business,

Mr. Ventura?

The Wachati are a peaceful tribe.

Since their sacred animal

has vanished...

...they believe that there is a curse

fallen on their village.

It all started some time ago when,

one night...

So, the daughter of the Wachati chief...
