Simba: I told you, isn't it great here? You know maybe it will be like this forever.

Nala: It's amazing. But there's...there's something I don't understand, if you been alive all this time why haven't you come home? We really needed you.

Simba: There fine...alright, nobody needs me.

Nala: You’re the king.

Simba: Nala, Scar is the king.

Nala: Simba he's decimated the pride lands, there's no food, no water.

Simba: There's nothing I can do.

Nala: What about your mother? This is your responsibility. You need to challenge Scar.

Simba: I can't go back, ever.

Nala: Why? Because of what happened at the gorge? Scar told us that...

Simba: You wouldn't understand, none of it matters okay, Hakuna Matata.

Nala: [confused] What?

Simba: It's something, I learned out here okay. You see sometimes bad things happen and there's nothing you can do about it, so why worry?

Nala: Why worry? What happened to you? You're not the Simba I remember.

Simba: And I never will be, are you satisfied?

Nala: No, I'm disappointed.

Simba: You know, now you're starting to sound like my father.

Nala: Good, I'm glad one of us does.

Simba: [angry] You have no idea what I've been through.

Nala: I came here looking for help, I guess I made a mistake. Goodbye Simba sorry what happened to you.

Simba: Let it go.”
