What is love if it's not with you?

I know when you're alone

You feel it too

In your arms is where I long to be

'Cause being with you gives me sanity

Welcome to Rio!

Listen to me, darling

I wake up every morning

thinking about the way you feel

I wonder if you know it

And what good is the party

If you're not around?

But listen to me now

What good is love?

If it's not your love

What good is love?

Am I your baby love?

If it's not your love

Is it a crazy love?

This is a crazy party

I'm so glad I'm here with everybody

Baby, move your body

Shake it to the ground

Break it, break it,

break it down, Blu


What's a song if you

can't hear it too?

Can't imagine dancing without you

A shooting star

Ain't really nothing to see

If you're not right here

Standing next to me

Listen to me, darling

I wake up every morning

Thinking about the way you feel

I wonder if you know it

What good is the party

if you're not around?

Listen to me now

What good is love?

If it's not your love

For a bird from Minnesota,

you've got some moves.

That wasn't a move.

That was an accident.

But I accept the compliment.

It's great Rafael

could watch the kids.

Yeah, it looks like

you're stuck with me all night.

You're my one and only, Blu.

That's a good thing,

since I'm the only other one.

Hey, you lovebirds! Happy New Year!

Rafi? Where are the...

The kids are with Luiz. No worries!

Worries. Right here.

Luiz? Where are the kids?

What? I don't have any kids.

Our kids!

Oh, right. I left them with Tiny.


What? She's an excellent babysitter.

I'm a terrible babysitter!

This is gonna be awesome!

All right,

I've done all the calculations...

and each explosion

will be perfectly synced to the beat.

Unless I didn't carry the one.

Here's my vision.

Red, blue, green, yellow, yellow!


Here's my vision.

Boom! Crash! Bang! Kapow!

I don't think your parents

would like this very much.

Here we go.

Where are you going, little bird?

- Hey, what is this?

- Oh, Dad.

Guys, you know the rules.

No pyrotechnics

without adult supervision.

We asked Tiny.

That's even worse.

Sorry, Tiny.

You don't have to pay me, Senhor Blu.

Kids, next time, ask me.

But you always say "no."

No, I don't.

Dad, you're in denial.

Honey, do I always say "no"?

- Yes. I mean, no.

- Great.

Now Mom's saying it, too.

Listen, we are the last

blue Spix's Macaws left on the planet.

We have to stay safe.

Birds of blue feathers...

Have to stick together.

I smell chicken.

No, no, no!

No, no, no!

By my calculations,

that's his twenty-seventh "no" today.


- Five, four, three, two, one!

- Everybody, fly!

Happy New Year!

Oh, man. How come Dad

gets to have all the fun?

Look! It worked!

Well, this year is off

to a great start.

Amazon Expedition, day seven.

Two thousand miles from Rio...

we've reached the center

of the rainforest.

We are surrounded

by plants and animals...

struggling for survival...

as we glide effortlessly

down the river.

Effortless for you.

How pretty.

Spit it out, spit it out!

We are near the nesting grounds

of the Amazonian Wood Quail.

Odontophorus gujanensis.

Six months ago,

we rescued this little bird...

from smugglers.

It was sick, malnourished...

with a broken leg, but now...

my trusty assistant...

I mean, loving wife and colleague,

will release her...

back to her natural habitat.

It's okay.

You can go now.

Just like this.

Let me talk to her.

Go on.


Do you think she's

gonna be all right?

Give it some time.

Welcome home.

Wait a minute.

What is she saying, Tulio?
