That night, Baloo and Bagheera chat while Mowgli sleeps. Bagheera convinces Baloo that with the tiger Shere Khan on the prowl, it's best if Mowgli goes to the man-village. When Baloo tries taking Mowgli home, Mowgli gets mad at his "betrayal" and runs away. Baloo next finds Mowgli in the midst of an attack by Shere Khan. Baloo tries to hold him off, but is supposedly killed. Shere Khan eventually runs off when Mowgli ties a fiery branch to his tail. Everyone is sad about Baloo, and Bagheera gives a soliloquoy on how much Baloo meant to him. But Baloo is well and alive, and he, Baggy, and Mowgli head on back home. But Mowgli meets a girl from the village named Shanti and follows her. Baloo is sad to see him go, but Baggy convinces him it's best. And so, the two happily head on back to the jungle.
