{Dissolve to the rain at night, washing over the cleansed Pride Rock. Thunder crashes as the camera pans down the rock face; Rafiki gestures to Simba to take his place as King. Before he starts up the slope, Simba turns aside to Timon and Pumbaa, who bow formally to him as the "King of Pride Rock" music plays.}

Simba:

{embracing them} I couldn't have done it without you guys.

{He starts the march up the promontory.}

Pumbaa:

{proudly, but not a little wistfully} That's our boy.

Timon:

{on the verge of tears} Ohh... I promised myself I wasn't gonna cry. {He breaks down in sobs}

{Simba roars at the tip of the promontory; Timon and Pumbaa look up at him flush with pride as the rest of the pride roars back (off-screen). Uncle Max smiles broadly. Ma beams. The meerkats and Pumbaa all share a look.}

"Hey, I don't remember it raining when we were there." Sora pointed out.

"Hmm. Weird." Simba said simply.

Ma:

{impressed} You've really come a long way, Timon. Did you find what you were looking for?

Timon:

I found a place that was beyond my wildest dreams. But... it still wasn't home. {takes Ma's hand} Let's go home, Ma.

{The camera dissolves to the rotating sweep that introduced the Jungle setting; Timon is now showing it off to Ma.}

Ma:

{awestruck} Ohhh!

Timon:

Welcome to our new home... a predator-free environment.

Ma:

I gotta hand it to you. Timon. This place has everything!

Timon:

Well, now that we're all here, it does.

{Timon and Ma climb up on Pumbaa's snout as "Hakuna Matata" begins playing. Wipe to the inner jungle, where Uncle Max is leading a group of meerkats in a session of tai-chi.}

Uncle Max:

{slowly, demonstrating his movements; the meerkats all copy him} Crane... spreads its wings... Turns, with dainty hands...

"Wow, Timon, you really came through in this movie." Nala said, smiling.

{Cut to meerkats arrayed along the edge of a pool, arms all upraised; one by one they dive into the water as they sing.}

Meerkats:

Digga tunnah,
Dig, dig a tunnah
Never gonna dig another tunnah
Digga tunnah,
Dig, digga tunnah
Never more the hyena come!

{A chorus line of butterfly wings are swept out of the way; Timon dances and cavorts with a Carmen Miranda-esque hat of colorful bugs}

Meerkats:

Sing the praises of brave Timon
Bravest meerkat we've ever known

{Uncle Max relaxes in the vine hammock with a drink, while bugs fall all around. Meerkats and Pumbaa take turns on the trampoline.}

Meerkats:

Never dreamed he'd help Simba shine

Pumbaa:

Proved it's cool to hang out with swine!

Sora chuckled to himself. His friends stared at him.

{A line of meerkats fish for bugs under a log}

Meerkats:

Accidentally saved the day

Timon:

{posing next to Ma} Planned it so it would look that way!

Meerkats:

And brought us out of the dirt and sand
Led his family to the promised land

{Timon and Ma, perched on Pumbaa's head, dive over a series of waterfalls. The meerkats all swim in the pools at the bottom, singing; Pumbaa with the two meerkats on his head rise out of the water, balanced on Simba's belly as he comes to the surface.}

Meerkats:

Sing the praises of brave Timon
Bravest meerkat we've ever known!

{The camera pulls back to show the whole meerkat clan enjoying Hakuna Matata: doing the conga, tossing a giant grub around like a medicine ball, hanggliding, and so on.}

Timon:

{narrating as the camera continues to truck out, ending with the silhouettes and the theater seats} Well, that's it. The big wrap-up, the happy ending, the grand finale.

Pumbaa:

{whimpering} It's over already?

Timon:

Well, Pumbaa. That's the thing about endings. They come at the end.

Pumbaa:

{brightening} Ooh, can we watch it again?

Timon:

Pumbaa, we just saw it. Maybe tomorrow.

Ma:

{entering in silhouette} Hey, what are you guys doing? {gasps as she sees the screen} You didn't tell me you were watching the movie! I wanna watch too!

Timon:

Ma, we just finished. Show's over.

Ma:

Well, you're just gonna have to rewind it! {She grabs Pumbaa's big remote and begins rewinding.}

Timon:

{pained} Ma!

Ma:

{calling offscreen} Uncle Max! We're gonna watch the movie!

Timon:

{despairing} Oh, no!

"How come you didn't want to watch it again?" Kovu asked Timon.

"Too many painful memories." Timon sighed.

Uncle Max:

{entering, carrying a box of popcorn} Hey, I brought extra butter.

Simba:

{entering, walking along the seatbacks} Hey, you guys are watching the movie?

Rafiki:

{swinging in on vines} Hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo! Any story worth telling is worth telling twice.

{The silhouette of Mickey Mouse walks in and sits down.}

"Hey, it's the king!" Sora exclaimed.

Timon:

What the...

{Snow White comes in, followed by the Dwarfs.}

Snow White:

Oh, excuse me...

"It's Snow White and the seven dwarfs!" Sora exclaimed again.

Happy:

'Scuse me.

Sneezy:

'Scuse me.

Doc:

'Scuse me.

Sleepy:

'Scuse me.

Bashful:

'Scuse me.

Grumpy:

Get outta the way.

Timon:

Who is this crowd?

{The Genie flies in and sits down in the middle, followed by Aladdin and Jasmine on the flying carpet; Belle, the Beast, Mrs. Potts and Chip,

"Oh my god, it's Genie, Aladdin, Jasmine, Carpet, Belle, the beast, Mrs. Potts, and Chip!" Sora pointed out.

Lady and the Tramp, and the Hippo from "Fantasia" are also seated in this row.}

Timon:

Hey, down in front!

{In another row, Goofy, the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, and Donald Duck are sitting; Stitch crawls down the wall and jumps from head to head until he gets to a vacant seat.

Stitch:

Oho!

Goofy:

Gawrsh!

Stitch:

Aloha!

Donald Duck:

{unintelligible squawking; he makes fists at Stitch}

"Ohmigod! Donald, Goofy, that's you!" Sora pointed to the screen. "Along with the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, and Stitch!"

"Ah-yuck. Yep!"

{In still another row, Quasimodo and Pocahontas sit at opposite ends of the row; Peter Pan flies in, followed by Tinker Bell, and imitates a rooster's crow. The Lost Boys all pile in, shouting. Switch to Timon's row, where he's holding two large bodies apart to keep them from squashing him.}

"Man, I'm seeing a lot of people I recognize here!" Sora gaped at the screen. "There's Peter Pan, the Lost Boys, Tinker Bell, Quasimodo..."

Timon:

Watch it! {straining} Unnnh!

{Timon's row has Terk, Dumbo, Brer Bear, Mowgli, Baloo, the three gargoyles, and the three fairy godmothers from "Sleeping Beauty"; Terk and Victor the gargoyle squeeze together, and Timon squirts out from between them like a watermelon seed. He lands next to Pumbaa as the movie, still rewinding, nears the beginning.}

"Oh...my god. Is that Terk, Dumbo, the three gargoyles, and the three good fairies?" Sora gasped.

"Ok, Sora, we get it!" Kovu snapped. "You see a lot of people you recognize! We don't need a grand tour!"

"Kovu, give it a rest." Simba said calmly.

Timon:

{resigned} Okay, buddy. You win.

Pumbaa:

Sure you don't mind?

Timon:

{sincere} Hakuna Matata.

Somebody:

Shh.

Somebody:

Sorry.

Pumbaa:

Uh. Timon... {the screen goes black} I still don't do so well in crowds.

"Let me guess- Pumbaa farted right after that." Vitani smirked.

"Yep. He did." Simba nodded.

"How big does the crowd have to be in order for him to...?" Sora asked.

"At least thirty people."

Sora sighed in relief.

"Well, this has been fun." Kiara commented. Kovu nodded in agreement.

"Yeah. I wanna do this again sometime." Sora remarked.

THE END

I wasn't quite sure how to end this, but oh well. Anyway, I'm writing a companion fic to this called A Goofy DVD. It's in my profile. Check it out!
