Ellie: Everything changes. That’s just a fact. They say a mammoth never forgets. Well, as I get older, I find they don’t always remember either.
Ellie: It all started with Manny, my lovable grouch of a mammoth. He’d lost his family to hunters. Heartbreak made him a loner. And then there was Sid, a big-hearted sloth, had been abandoned by his family, because he could be, let’s just say, a little annoying. And Diego, a fierce saber-tooth. He risked his life to defy his ruthless pack and was left with nowhere to go. Fate brought this unlikely trio together when they were charged with the care of a lost baby. And in returning the child to its family, they became a family themselves.
Ellie: Now, Manny thought he was the last mammoth in the Ice Age, and was convinced he’d never find love. That is, until he met me, Ellie. We felt the earth move. Nineteen tons of combined weight will do that.
Ellie: I joined the herd along with my adopted possum brothers, Crash and Eddie. The six of us had so many adventures. But every time we thought it was the end of the world, it only brought us closer together.
Eddie: [looking over the edge of the mountain] That’s a long way down.
Crash: Only if we make it to the bottom.
Crash: I was just sitting there, and I thought, “Aren’t you tired of Ellie always telling us what we can’t do?”
Eddie: Yeah. “Don’t use tar pits as a bubble bath. Don’t gargle with fire ants. Don’t scale the side of an unstable, ten thousand foot glacier.” She’s smothering us with reasonable advice.
Crash: What if we move out and get our own place?
Eddie: Ooh! You mean a bachelor den?
Crash: No, I was thinking more of a place where two single guys hang out.
Eddie: Oh, that’s way better.
Manny: It took us all spring to build that summer habitat! All spring! And you destroyed it in seconds!
Eddie: Wooh! That’s a new record. It took us like eight minutes to destroy our fall habitat.
Crash: But why did you build it right in the middle of our ice-alanche? Rookie error, dude.

Sid: Let’s work this out like a family. Manny, use your feeling words. “I feel…” Come on. “I feel…”
Manny: I feel like I’m about to crush you like a grape.
Sid: That’s good. Breakthrough!
Diego: [referring to Ellie] If it wasn’t for her protection, you two would’ve been gone long ago.
Crash: Ha! If it wasn’t for her, we’d be out there in the world a-roaming.
Eddie: Yeah! Our a-roaming skills are strong.
Manny: No, your aroma is strong. You’d never survive on your own.
Crash: Anything you can do, we can do nearly almost as well.
Ellie: Can you clean your own habitat? Can you feed yourselves?
Manny: Can you protect yourself from predators?
Crash: Oh, sure, bring those things up.
Crash: That does it! I’m done being treated like a baby. It’s time for us to move out and make our mark on the world!
Eddie: I make my mark on the world every day. I just lift my leg and do it. That tree is mine, for instance. And that tree, and that one. And that rock over there. And your pillow too!
Manny: Well, family can be difficult. We are a nutty, mixed-up herd full of loners and outcasts. And that’s just on my side.
Ellie: Right, and you don’t hear me complain about your side ever.
Manny: My side takes care of themselves. Yeah, well, Diego does. And then we both take care of Sid.
Sid: Well, maybe what scares you is that they won’t need you anymore.
Ellie: Or maybe it’s the fact that their only natural defense is to play dead.
Sid: You know, I lost my mama too. Well, technically, she moved away without leaving a forwarding address. But then I found Manny here. And then, when Diego came along, and tried to kill us, we knew we were destined to be a family.
Eddie: [to a sleeping Ellie] Goodbye, Sis. It’s time for us to make our own destiny.
Crash: And maybe even make our own lunch.
Eddie: We may never see you again.
Manny: I don’t hear anything.
Ellie: Right. It’s too quiet. Nothing’s breaking. No one’s fighting. That can only mean one thing. They’re gone! They took all their things.
Manny: They don’t have any things.
Ellie: Manny, my brothers are out there in the wild, and it’s all your fault!
Manny: What, my fault?
Sid: Well, you did challenge them to try to survive on their own. In effect, sending them to their doom.
Manny: Thanks, Sid.
Sid: Anytime, buddy. I always got your back.

Manny: If Crash and Eddie get into trouble, they’ll find their way back.
Ellie: Find their way back? The only thing worse than their survival skills is their sense of direction.
Sid: And their math skills aren’t great either.
Crash: Dude, being on our own totally rules!
Eddie: And we’ve got nothing to worry about since we’ve got nine lives.
Crash: Oh, come on. Everyone knows that’s dogs.
Eddie: Oh. Well, how many lives do we get?
Crash: I forget. It’s either four or eleven.
Crash: Destiny awaits!
Eddie: [as they crash throw some ice] Destiny hurts.
Crash: [as they’re being chased] One of us should give ourselves up so the other can get away!
Eddie: Good idea! I volunteer you!
Eddie: It always amazes me there’s a whole world down here. Right below our feet.
Crash: And a giant spider right above our heads.

Eddie: We’re going to be goners!
Crash: Yeah! And then we’ll only have three or ten more lives!
Crash: You know that whole “living on our own” thing? I’m starting to question our judgment!
Eddie: Well, this is the perfect time to do it.
Buck: Buck Wild, at your service.
Crash: Our hero!
Eddie: The legend of the Lost World!
Crash: The wizard of weasels!
Buck: The yin to my yang!
Crash: Your ways are strange and mysterious, Buck. But mostly strange.
Buck: Thanks for dropping in. Will the rest of the herd be falling from the sky too? I don’t think I can catch the mammoths. One, maybe.
Buck: This is your captain speaking. Please keep your whiskers and bottoms inside the dactyl at all times.
