Scar: Why, Simba! I'm a little surprised to see you... (threatening glance at the hyenas) alive.
Simba: Give me one reason why I shouldn't rip you apart.
Scar: Simba, you must understand. The pressures of ruling a kingdom--
Simba: --are no longer yours. Step down, Scar.
Scar: Oh, of course, I would, naturally. But there's one little problem. You see them? (indicates the large group of hyenas) They think I'm king.
Nala: (leading a group of lionesses] Well we don't. Simba's the rightful king.
Simba: The choice is yours, Scar: either step down, or fight.
Scar: Oh, must this all end in violence? I'd hate to be responsible for the death of a family member. Wouldn't you agree, Simba?
Simba: That's not going to work, Scar. I've put it behind me.
Scar: But what about your faithful subjects? Have they put it behind them?
Nala: Simba, what is he talking about?
Scar: [grins] Ah, so you haven't told them your little secret. Well, Simba, now's your chance to tell them. Tell them who is responsible for Mufasa's death!
Simba: (Pauses) I am.
Sarabi: It's not true. Tell me it's not true!
Simba: It's true.
Scar: You see, he admits it! Murderer!
Simba: No, it was an accident!
Scar: If it weren't for you, Mufasa would still be alive! It's your fault he's dead! Do you deny it?
Simba: No.
Scar: Then you're guilty!
Simba: No, I'm not a murderer!
Scar: (Backing Simba towards the edge of a cliff) Oh, Simba, you're in trouble again. But this time, Daddy isn't here to save you. And now everyone knows why!
(Simba falls off cliff, barely holding on by his front paws)
Scar: Now this looks familiar. Hmmmm, where have I seen this before? Let me think... Oh, yes, I remember! This is just the way your father looked before he died. (Grabs Simba's paws) And here's my little secret... (Whispers) I killed Mufasa.
Simba: (Leaps back onto Pride Rock, tackling Scar) NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! MURDERER!!
Scar: No, Simba, please!
Simba: Tell them the truth.
Scar: Truth? But, truth is in the eye of the behol-- (Simba begins applying pressure to Scar's neck) Alright. Alright! (Whispers) I did it.
Simba: So they can hear you.
