Into the world of the Emperor Penguins, who find their soul mates through song, a penguin is born who cannot sing. But he can tap dance something fierce!

[after Mumble has jumped off a glacier to chase a ship]
Ramón: Man, how're we gonna tell his mama he brought us all the way out here just to kill himself?
Ramón: [standing ontop of a cliff, trying to get ready to jump off]
Ramón: I can do this, I can do this... I have to trick myself.
[points at something behind him]
Ramón: Boy, look at that!
[looks at where he's pointing]
Ramón: What?
[falls off the cliff]
Leopard Seal: Come here, sausage. I take you with ketchup!
Ramón: Yeah, but first you gotta catch up!
[laughing]
Ramón: You just got to do exactly what I say!
Mumble: Okay.
Ramón: Did I say "okay"?
Mumble: No.
Ramón: No. What did I say?
Mumble: Do exactly what you say.
Ramón: EXACTLY what I say!
Néstor: Amigo, that is a good thing you do.
Ramón: She is going to be so much better off without you. She is going to find a good steady guy to comfort her...
[Raul attempts to slap Ramón, but misses]
Ramón: And love her up real good and raise a big family...
Rinaldo: Ramón. Ramón! He's hurting. He's hurting bad.
Ramón: Just a moment. I hear people wanting something... ME!
[Killer whales are menacing the adelies and Mumble perched on a buoy]
Rinaldo: They're making us appeteasers!
Ramón: They're appe-teasing us! Ha, ha, ha!
[pause]
Ramón: We're gonna die.
[to Memphis]
Mumble: It's just like... singing, with your body.
Baby Gloria: [to Mumble's unhatched egg] Is it empty?
Maurice: Honey...
Baby Gloria: Can I have it?
Maurice: Gloria!
Miss Viola: Without our heart song, we can't be truly penguin, can we?
Class: No.
Miss Viola: But, my dears, it's not something I can actually teach you. Does anybody know why? Anyone? Anyone?
Baby Gloria: You can't teach it to us, ma'am, because we have to find out heart songs all by ourselves.
Miss Viola: Well done, you.
Baby Gloria: It's the voice you hear inside, who you truly are.
Miss Viola: Yes. Thank you, Gloria. Excellent, lovely, thank you.
Memphis: Whatcha doin' there, boy?
Baby Mumble: [tap dancing] I'm happy, Pa!
Memphis: Whatcha doin' with your feet?
Baby Mumble: [looks down] They're happy, too!
Néstor: [watching Mumble as he slides down the cliff after falling] Man, this guy is so accidentally cool!
[all the Adélies jump after him]
Gloria: [to Mumble] You stubborn, hippity-hoppity fool!
Mumble: [to the leopard seal] See you fatty!
[the Amigos suddenly stop walking and slowly turn towards Mumble]
Ramón: That's cool! "See you fatty!"
[Amigos laugh]
Ramón: Did it take you a while to come up with that one? Alright, way to go tall guy.
Rinaldo: [reaching up to high-five Mumble] Gimme fin! Gimme fin!
Ramón: Big guy. Let me tell something to you. Come close. Don't be afraid. You want answers?
Mumble: Yeah.
Ramón: Thats all you need?
Mumble: Yeah.
Ramón: Nothing else?
Mumble: No.
Ramón: Then this is very easy. You go see Lovelace.
Raul, Lombardo, Néstor, Rinaldo: Yaaaah. Lovelace
Raul: Genius Ramon.
Ramón: Thank you
Raul: You are the man.
Ramón: I right now take a moment for myself. Bow down, bow down.
[All Amigos bow to him]
Raul: You the man, you the man.
Ramón: Thats enough. I feel your love.
Ramón: [to the Penguins] We sing the heart of our true friend Mumble. You are a nation of teeny weeny, pibbling pickolini, piddily diddily poof!
Baby Seymour: [singing] Don't push me 'cause I am close to the edge. I'm trying not to lose my head.
Miss Viola: Yes, I like that one. I could really get jiggy with that. Lovely.
Seymour: [singing to Gloria] Gloria, I adori ya, I'd like to see more o' ya!
Mumble: Take the fish.
Gloria: Huh?
Mumble: Take the stupid fish.
Gloria: Oh, okay.
[eats the fish]
Gloria: Thanks, Mumble.
Mumble: You're welcome.
Leopard Seal: Remember dumplings, I know where you live.
Raul: Yeah! It's called LAND, lardface!
[watching the elephant seals]
Lombardo: I don't think they are penguin eaters, are they?
Ramón: I believe they are herbivores.
Raul: Huh?
Ramón: You know, kelp suckers!
Ramón: Don't be so snooty, booty!
Ramón: STOP! Lemme tell something to joo... I know size can be daunting... but don't be afraid... I love you!
Ramón: [to Mumble] We got personality, with a capital Y. Why? Because we're hot!
Gloria: Daylight deals a bad hand...
Mumble: Sing to this.
Gloria: Mumble, you're embarrassing me.
[Mumble taps his feet]
Gloria: Baby, uh-uh, it don't work
[Mumble taps his feet again]
Gloria: Baby, uh uh uh, uh-uh
[Mumble taps his feet again]
Gloria: Uh uh uh, uh
[Mumble taps his feet again]
Gloria: Uh uh uh, uh
[Mumble taps his feet again]
Gloria: Uh uh uh/So slowly...
[Mumble taps his feet along while Gloria sings]
Gloria: So slowly into hearts of those who/Need more than they get/Daylight deals a bad hand/To a penguin that has laid too many bets/The mirror stares you in the face and says/"Baby, uh-uh, it don't work!"/You say your prayers, though you don't care/You sing and you/Shake the hurt... /DANCE!
Penguins: [singing] Can anybody find me somebody to love?
Gloria: [singing] Each morning I get up, I die a little / Can barely stand on my feet.
Penguins: [singing] Take a look at yourself.
Gloria: [singing] Take a look in the mirror and cry a little / Lord, what you doing to me. / I spent all my years in believing you / I just can't get no relief, Lord. / Somebody.
Penguins: [singing] Somebody.
Gloria: [singing] Please somebody.
Penguins: [singing] Please.
Gloria: [singing] Can anybody find me somebody to love?
Penguins: [singing] She works hard.
Gloria: [singing] Everyday.
Penguins: [singing] Everyday.
Gloria: [singing] Oh I try and I try and I try. / But everybody wants to put me down. / They say, they say, I'm going crazy. / They say I got a lot of water in my brain / Got no common sense, I got nobody left to believe in.
Penguins: [singing] Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, ooh...
Miss Viola: Well there is always Mrs. Astrakhan.
Memphis: Mrs. Astrakhan?
Miss Viola: If anyone can, Mrs. Astrakhan can.
Mumble: Gloria, all my life I've wanted to say, you're so...
Gloria: Fish...
Mumble: Yeah, you're so fish.
Gloria: No.
[laughs]
Gloria: Fish!
Gloria: [points]
Lovelace: [narrating voice over] There is a wisdom brothers and sisters that stands above all others. Never, ever.
Memphis: It's okay.
Lovelace: [narrating voice over] No matter what.
Memphis: No harm done. See?
Lovelace: [narrating voice over] Drop your egg.
Mumble: [about Lovelace] I'll just appeal to his better nature.
Néstor: How you gonna do that?
Raul: Cruel and unusual punishment?
Rinaldo: Unimaginable torture?
Ramón: Imaginable torture?
Rinaldo: Your singing?
Ramón, Néstor, Raul, Lombardo: No!
[Mumble has dived off a cliff to pursue the "alien" fishing boat]
Lovelace: I'm gonna be telling your story, Happy Feet, long after you're dead and gone!
Memphis: I wouldn't do that around folks, Son.
Baby Mumble: Why not?
Memphis: Well it... it just ain't penguin, okay?
Raul: What you huggin me for?
Ramón: He told me to.
Raul: Get away.
Ramón: No, you like it!
Memphis: Remember stranger danger!
Mumble: Sure thing, pa!
Memphis: Watch out for leopard seals and them killer whales!
Norma Jean: You don't have to be beautiful, to turn me on. I just need your body, baby.
Male Penguin #1: Hello...
Norma Jean: From dusk 'til dawn.
Male Penguin #1: Is it me you're lookin' for?
Norma Jean: You don't need experience.
Male Penguin #2: Take...
Norma Jean: To turn me out.
Male Penguin #2: These broken wings.
Norma Jean: You just leave it all up to me.
Male Penguin #3: Let's talk about eggs, baby. Let's talk about you and me.
Norma Jean: Mm-mm, mm-mm. You don't have to be rich to be my pearl. Don't have to be cool to rule my world. Ain't no particular song I'm more compatible with. I just want your extra...
[turns to the huge crowd of males following her]
Norma Jean: Boys, boys! Give a chick a chance!
Memphis: [appearing on the crest of a hill] Well, since my baby left me I found a new place to dwell. It's down at the end of Lonely Street at Heartbreak Hotel. And I said, I'm feelin' so lonely, baby. I'm feelin' so lonely.
Norma Jean, Memphis: I'm feelin' so lonely...
Norma Jean: ...I could die.
Memphis: You don't have to be rich to be my girl.
Norma Jean: Don't have to be cool to rule my world.
Memphis: You rule my world.
Norma Jean: You're the particular song I'm compatible with.
Memphis: I just want your...
Norma Jean, Memphis: ...extra time... and your kiss.
Seymour: [Gloria is singing "Somebody To Love"] Hey! I'm somebody!
Memphis: You bet you will. The word triumph starts with "try" and ends with...?
Young Mumble: umph?
Memphis: That's right, a great big UMPH!
Miss Viola: Good morning class.
Class: Good morning, Miss Viola.
Miss Viola: Right, well, today we will begin with the most important lesson you will ever learn at penguin elementary. Does anyone know what that is? Anyone? Anyone? Someone? Seymour?
Baby Seymour: Fishing?
Miss Viola: No. Mumble?
Baby Mumble: Don't eat yellow snow?
Miss Viola: No. That's not it. No.
Baby Gloria: It's our heart song, Miss.
Miss Viola: Thank you, Gloria. Yes, yes.
Mumble: Excuse me. What is this place?
Zoo Penguin: You're in heaven, Dave. Penguin heaven.
Mumble: Is it anywhere near Emperor Land?
Zoo Penguin: It's wherever you want it to be. Try the water, Dave. It's really real.
Ramón: You know, chica chica boom boom boom boom boom.
Mumble: You are not interested in chicas?
Raul: You kidding?
Ramón: Without us, the chicas got no boom!
[laughs]
[last lines]
Lovelace: [narrating voice over] Is equal to the love you make. Oh baby, right on.
Seymour: It's like a jungle sometimes, it makes me wonder how I keep from goin' under!
Lovelace: [narrating voice over] Enraged by their indifference, he followed them long after they were gone from his sight. He ventured further than any of us had gone before, beyond all hope of return. Swept up by the great currents, he was carried endlessly, across vast oceans, to worlds unknown.
Baby Gloria: Mumble, Mumble.
Memphis: You okay?
Baby Mumble: Freezing. Freezing.
Memphis: Oh, you'll get used to it.
Penguins: What's the matter with you?
Gloria: Mumble?
Mumble: Yeah?
Gloria: It's better you just...
Mumble: Yeah, I know.

Gloria: [singing] And says, "Baby, it don't work".
Penguins: [singing] You say your prayers though you don't care.
Gloria: [singing] You sing and you shake the hurt.
Penguins: [singing] Dance! Mumble!
Gloria: [singing] Boogie Wonderland!
Penguins: [singing] Dance! Dance! Dance! Mumble!
Gloria: [singing] Boogie Wonderland!
[talking to humans]
Mumble: I'm speaking plain penguin!
Ramón: [after hearing Mumble singing] Yeah, I heard an animal once do that, but then they rolled him over and he was dead.
Lovelace: [narrating Memphis and Norma Jean] His Mom and Dad met in the usual way, the song became love, and love became the egg.
UN Delagate: I do not want to live in a world without Penguins!
Penguins: [singing] Find me somebody to love.
Gloria: [singing] Oh, baby find me.
Penguins: [singing] Find me somebody to love.
Gloria: Come on, put your flippers up in the air now.
Penguins: [singing] Find me somebody to love. Find me somebody to love. Find me somebody to love. Find me somebody to love. Find me somebody to love.
Gloria: I'm searching high and low. I'm searching the high and low. Yes, there somebody out there who needs to find me.
[singing]
Gloria: Somebody. Anybody.
Gloria: [holding Mumble's flipper during "I Wish"] I love my lover! I love my lover!
Gloria: [singing] All the love in the world can't be gone. All the need to be loved can't be wrong.
[spoken]
Gloria: So, which way, twinkletoes?
Gloria: Ah-ah, baby. They're sayin'
[pause]
Gloria: Mumble!
Ramón: Go see Lovelace.
Raul: He got the answer to everything.
Lombardo: Everything.
Mumble: Really?
Ramón: Ask him, he never wrong. But first, you're gonna need a pebble.
Mrs. Astrakhan: What are you doing?
Baby Mumble: I'm being spontan-you-us!
Memphis: ...Well that's different.
