    That's Better

    Narrator: And so, onward and upward, the tired trekkers trudged on feverished footsies over perilous paths. When they finally beheld the mighty Ape Mountain, they reacted with awe.

    Expedition: Ooooooooh.

      Did Not

      Thor: Max, look. We're back at the treehouse.
      Ape: Well, I tried, but you fellas are just too smart for me.
      Max: Oh, no!
      Narrator: "Oh, no!" was right, for the exhausted ape-nappers--
      Thor: Hey! Why don't you say something constructive for a change, like, what should we do now?
      Narrator: Because I don't like you!
      Thor: Well, I hate you, you snotty son of a--!
      Narrator: I'll pretend I didn't hear that. Having some fun now, hmm?
      Max: Thor, were you fighting with the narrator?
      Thor: Well, he started it.
      Narrator: Did not.
      Thor: You did too!
      Narrator: Did not!
      Thor: You did too!
      Narrator: Did not!

        A Monkey Out Of You

        Ape: I'm hungry.
        Thor: Oh, shut up! You've been yakkin' for two days straight, and I'm getting mad enough to...
        Ape: You know, you really should work on your anger. Have you tried Brankowski's "Cage the Rage" technique?
        Max: Don't let him get to you, Thor. He's just an ape.
        Ape: That's a fine way to talk to your meal ticket. You keep that up, it's liable to affect my stage performance.
        Max: Give him a banana, Thor. Won't be long now.
        Thor: That's what you said yesterday. This trail's taking us to the middle of nowhere!
        Max: The sign at the trail head said "Shortcut to Ape River". Now, why would it say "shortcut" if it wasn't a... Wait a minute. Maybe it's a fake. A decoy trail.
        Ape: Very good, Max. Actually, the trail IS a fake. It circles Ape Mountain six times before heading right back to the treehouse.
        Thor: Ohhh! Oh, I knew we was lost!
        Max: Don't listen to him, Thor. He's just trying to trick us, lead us off the shortcut so we take twice as long on the regular trail.
        Thor: We're already taking twice as long!
        Max: Are you gonna let a monkey make a monkey out of you?
        Thor: What?
        Ape: Du-u-u-uh!
        Max: Let's go. If he tells us the shortcut leads to the treehouse, then that's exactly where it doesn't lead.

          Be My Guest

          Lyle: Ursula! God, this trail's really rough.
          N'Dugo: Drop him! You're not his donkey.  "Ursula! Ursula!" Next cliff we pass, he's history.
          Lyle: Hey, come back here.
          Max: They're not abandoning us, are they?
          Kwame: They are threatening.
          Lyle: If you don't mind, Kwame, I have a knack for getting the most out of my employees. Do you mind if I address the porters?
          Kwame: They only speak Swahili.
          Lyle: Well, I just happen to have a Swahili phrase book.
          Kwame: Be my guest.
          Lyle:  Pardon me, girls. I know you're feeling pretty hey sailor up here about now. But, if you would just let me order a bowl of fried clams, we can all have smallpox tomorrow morning.  I think our troubles are over.
          Max: Tell them I'll pay 50 zamoles a man if they'll help me capture the White Ape and bring him back alive.
          Lyle: Alive? After he...uh...well, he pulled Ursula's scrunchy off. We know that much.
          Max: 50 zamoles a man. What do you say?
          Kwame: They only speak Swahili.
          N'Dugo:  100 zamoles a man and you got a deal.
          Lyle: Hey, wait a second...
          Max: Done.
