Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008) Poster

David Schwimmer: Melman



  • Melman : No, no that's not it. Listen Mototo, you'd better treat this lady like a queen. Because you, you my friend... have found the perfect woman. If I was ever so lucky to find the perfect woman, I would give her flowers every day. And not just any flowers, okay? Her favorites are orchids. White. And I would bring her breakfast every day. Six loaves of wheat bread with butter on both sides. No crusts. Just the way she likes it. I'd be her shoulder to cry on and her best friend. And I'd spend every day thinking of ways to make her laugh. She has the most... amazing laugh. That's what I would do, if I were you. But I'm not. So you do it.

    Moto Moto : Uhhh... What? Aaaanyways, where were we?

    Gloria : [sigh]  I'm huge?

  • Julien : [after Melman has announced he has only 48 hours to live]  If I, King Julien, that's my name, had only two days to live, I would do all the things I always wanted to do.

    Melman : Like what?

    Julien : I'd become a professional whistler. I'm pretty fantastic right now, but I would do it professionally.

    [Tries to whistle, but all that comes out is a long raspberry] 

    Julien : Another thing I would do is invade a neighboring country, and force my own ideology on them, even if they didn't want it.

  • Gloria : What is this place?

    Melman : San Diego. This time, I'm 40% sure.

  • Melman : [as the plane is going down]  I love you, Gloria! I always have!

    [Gloria is fast asleep; Alex and Marty stare at Melman] 

    Melman : Like you love the beach, or a good book, or the beach...

  • Melman : What, you don't have doctors here?

    Stephen : Well not any more.

    Melman : What if you catch a cold or something.

    Additional Giraffe : We go over to the dying holes, and we die.

  • Julien : Ha,ha,ha! I like laughing! It's such a nice experience!

    Melman : [Melman pokes his head in]  Whoa.

    Julien : Exuse me, this is first class. It's nothing personal, it's just that we're better than you.

  • Alex : I like to move it, move it!

    Gloria : He likes to move it, move it!

    Marty : She likes to move it, move it!

    Melman : We like to...?

    Lemurs : Move it!

  • Marty : I still think he's a show-off.

    Melman : You gotta give him credit. He is an animal.

    Marty : I don't know about you guys, but I feel like going on vacation.

    Gloria : Where are we going to go on vacation?

    Marty : I was thinking Conneticut.

  • Melman : Gloria!

    [sees Gloria and Moto Moto] 

    Melman : Gloria.

    Gloria : Melman.

    [Moto Moto turns around puckered] 

    Gloria : Melman, I... I want you to meet Moto Moto.

    Melman : Ah. Moto Moto. Yeah, nice to meet you. Well, I-I guess I...

    Gloria : It's ok, Melman. Apology accepted.

    Melman : Oh. Yeah, right, yes. That... yes. That's why I... good. Phew. Ok. That's - Well, that's it then.

    Moto Moto : You're good. We're kinda busy here, man.

  • Melman : Gloria, it wasn't the pills or the tourists, it was seeing you all these years that kept me going.

  • Gloria : [as they watch the sunset]  Beautiful, isn't it?

    Melman : Yeah.

    Marty : It's amazing.

    Alex : Guys... this is where we belong.
