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.

It's happening!

Wait up guys!

The baby is coming! The baby

is coming! I'm having a baby.

- Code blue, code blue,

- Or pink if it's a girl

Coming up baby! Coming up baby!

I'm coming, Ellie!

We got it.

- Ellie, Ellie, Where are you, Where am I?

- Manny!

I told you! It was just a kick.

Ohh right! Right, oh wow.

Ohh you really gave daddy a scare!

Daddy got silly.

Daddy fall down cliff and go,

boom, boom, boom. Silly daddy.

Sorry, folks. False alarm.

It was just a kick.

- Do you know who I want to kick?

- That's the third false alarm this week.

Allright show's over...

break it up, break it up!

Oh I see someone else

who has a bun in the oven?

I'm not pregnant!

Too bad, you'd make

a wonderful mother.

Manny I know your excited, I am too,

but your getting a little carried away.

Okay, okay, Boy, your

starting to sound like Diego.

Wait a second... Where is Diego?

My hooves are burning, baby!

They are burning!

Oh, look at this, I got to tip-Toe!

I got to tip-Toe! Eat my dust, dingo!

- Huh, can I look now?

- Easy, don't freak out the baby.

The baby is fine. It's the freaked

out daddy I'm worried about.

Ah-Uh-Uh, No peeking.

Voila! Playground for junior...

- Ohh wow!

It's amazing.

- Ohh Manny...

- I made it myself, our family.

Hey why aren't I up there?

- You can be on ours.

- You'd fit right in.

Of course it's still work in progress.

Few rough edges, here and there.

I don't believe it, your

trying to baby proof nature.

Baby proof nature?

Get outta here.

That's ridiculous.

Manny, this is the world our baby's

gonna grow up in. You can't change that.

Of course I can, I'm the

biggest thing on earth.

Okay big daddy, I can't wait to see,

how you handle the teen years.

Come on, Sid. I don't want you

touching anything. This place is for kids.

Are you a kid?

Don't answer that.

Diego, there you are.

You missed the big surprise.

- I'll check it out later.

- Okay, See ya.

You know, I think there's

something bothering, Diego.

No, I'm sure everything's fine.

You should talk to him.

Guys don't talk to guys,

about guy problems.

- We just punch each other on the shoulders.

- That's stupid!

To a girl, but for a guy, that's

like six months of therapy.

Okay, Okay I'm going.

- Hey.

- Oww!

- Why'd you do that?

- I don't know.

So listen, Ellie thinks theres

something bothering you...

Actually, I've been thinking, that soon,

it might be time for me to head out.

Okay, so I'll just tell her that

your fine. It was nothing.

Look, who are we kidding,

Manny? I'm losing my edge.

I'm not really built for

chaperoning play-Dates.

What do you talking about?

Having a family, that's huge.

And I'm happy for you, but...

- It's your adventure, not mine.

- So you don't want to be around my kid?

No, no, no, t-Thats...

your taking this the wrong way.

No go, go find some adventure.

Mr. Adventure guy!

Don't let my boring domestic life

hit you on the bottom, on your way out.

Isn't Ellie supposed to be the

one with the hormonal imbalance?

Manny, wait! No one has to leave.

- So?

- That's why guys don't talk to guys.

- Why what happened.

- Diego's leaving.

Whoa, whoa, this should be the best

time of our lives. We're having a baby.

- No, Sid. They're havin' a baby

- Yeah but, we're a herd. We're a family

Look things have changed.

Manny has other priority's now.

Face it, Sid. We had a great run,

but... now it's time to move on.

- So it's just the two of us.

- No, Sid. It's not the two of us.

Crash and Eddie, are coming with us?

Just, Crash?

Just, Eddie?

Goodbye, Sid.

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
