Madagascar

Synopsis: At New York's Central Park Zoo, a lion, a zebra, a giraffe, and a hippo are best friends and stars of the show. But when one of the animals goes missing from their cage, the other three break free to look for him, only to find themselves reunited ... on a ship en route to Africa. When their vessel is hijacked, however, the friends, who have all been raised in captivity, learn first-hand what life can be like in the wild.

Surprise!

Alex. Do not interrupt me

when I'm daydreaming.

When a zebra's in the zone,

leave him alone.

Come on. Just wanted

to wish you a happy birthday.

Hey, man, thanks.

Hey, I got something

stuck in my teeth.

It's driving me crazy.

Can you help me? Please?

You came to the right place,

my friend.

Dr. Marty, D.D.S., is in the house.

Please hop on top of my sterilized

examination table, if you may.

- I don't see anything.

- It's on the left.

Oh, sorry.

OK, just don't talk

with your mouth full.

Right here. What the heck

is this doing in there?

Happy birthday!

Aw, hey, thanks, man.

You put it in behind the tooth.

You all right.

These aren't even on the shelf yet.

Here. Check it out.

- Look at that. Ooh! Look at that.

- Look at that. It's snowing.

Ten years old, huh? A decade.

Double digits. The big 1-0.

You don't like it?

- No, no, it's great.

- You hate it.

I should've gotten you the Alex

alarm clock. That's the big seller.

No, no, no.

The present's great, really.

It's just that

another year's come and gone

and I'm still doing

the same old thing.

"Stand over here. Trot over there.

Eat some grass. Walk back over here."

- I see your problem.

- I should go to law school.

You just need to break out

of that boring routine.

- How?

- Throw out the old act.

Who knows what you'll do.

Make it up as you go along.

Ad lib. Improvise. On the fly.

Boom, boom, boom.

- Really?

- You know, make it fresh.

Fresh, huh? OK.

I could do fresh.

Works for me.

Here come the people, Marty.

I love the people.

It's fun people fun time!

Let's go, Gloria!

Up and at 'em. We're open!

What day is it?

It's Friday. Field trip day.

Yes, it's field trip day.

Let's get up and go...

...in ten more minutes.

Come on!

Melman, Melman, Melman!

Melman, Melman, Melman!

Wake up! Rise and shine! It's another

fabulous morning in the Big Apple.

Let's go.

- Not for me. I'm calling in sick.

- What?

I found another brown spot

on my shoulder. Right here. See?

Right there. You see?

Melman, you know

it's all in your head. Hm?

Let's go! Come on!

Phil! Wake up, you filthy monkey.

Oh, I'm going to be fresh.

Straight out the ground.

Tasty fresh! Freshalicious.

Ziploc fresh.

Ladies and gentlemen,

children of all ages,

the Central Park Zoo

proudly presents:

Show them the cat. Who's the cat?

The king of New York City.

Alex the lion.

It's showtime.

Roar!

Gather around, people.

Big show about to start.

Check out the zebra

taking care of biz. That's right.

Just smile and wave, boys.

Smile and wave.

Kowalski, progress report.

We're 500 feet from the main sewer line.

- And the bad news?

- We've broken our last shovel.

Right.

Rico, you're on litter patrol.

We need shovels.

And find more Popsicle sticks.

We don't want to risk another cave-in.

And me, skipper?

I want you to look

cute and cuddly, private.

Today we're going to blow this dump.

Come here. Come here.

Come on, penguin.

Yeah! You don't

see that on Animal Planet.

Ha-ha.

Well, show's over, folks.

Thanks for coming.

I hope you thought it was fresh.

I'll be here all week.

In fact, I'll be here

for my whole life.

Three hundred

and sixty-five days a year,

including Christmas,

Hanukkah, Halloween, Kwanzaa.

Please don't forget

to never spay or neuter your pets.

And tip your cabbie,

because he's broke.

You, quadruped.

Sprechen sie Englisch?

I sprechen.

- What continent is this?

- Manhattan.

Hoover Dam!

We're still in New York.

Abort. Dive! Dive! Dive.

Hey. You in the tux. Wait a minute.

What are you guys doing?
