However, there were a few times when my mind goes into "autopilot mode" where I'd just do the standard OG spiel and I'd start spieling about how we just discovered the secret bathing pool of the Indian elephants, and we have just passed the plane crash heading into the hippo pool. When that happens, it does snap me out of autopilot mode and trying to not make myself look dumb, I continue onwards with my elephant spiel in the hippo pool, continue the rest of the normal spiel, and then do the hippo spiel as soon as we pull out of the temple, and then comment how I'm still learning the difference between hippos and elephants. I know my zebras because they're black and white, and not large gray matters.
And then when we do pull up to the unload dock, there are a bunch of great lines I loved using:-"Now I'm going to leave you with some words of advice my father once told me on my 18th birthday . . . Son, take off that pink dress, you're embarassing the family, get out." (originally, 'pack your bags and get out, the free ride's over')-"Please make sure you leave the same way you came on, pushing and shoving the family infront of you, it's payback, and the Disney way. If you came in the front, go out the front, if you came in the back, go out the back, DO NOT CROSS THE CENTER CRATES! Crossing those crates is a FIRE HAZARD! You cross those crates, you will then trip and hurt yourself, I will then have to laugh at you, and then I will then get fired for that, so please don't cross over those crates, it's hazardous to my health."-"Go out with (insert name here), someone please go out with (name). He hasn't had a date in over 3 years and isn't quite the same anymore. He used to enjoy long walks on Pygmy beach, hanging out with Chief Namee, skinny dipping in the hippo pool, and reading romantic novels cuddled up with a gorilla."-(Skipper Joe exit spiel, the day is not complete unless you have done this spiel once in you shift)"Please do not cross over our crates, folks, head out the back door, it's got 30% less calories and full of anti-oxidents, and here at the Jungle Cruise, we would like to prevent any oxidents from happening because we're really big on safety, also Hostess products, rotisserie chicken, the magenta crayon in the 64 Crayola box, the one with the built in sharpener, Peeps!, Taco Bell, and anything grilled at the Goooooooooooooooooooooooooolden Coral, but mostly safety. So have a magical magical magical magical day . . . and pie. Nothing's more magical than a slice of warm dutch apple pie with a scoop of french vanilla ice cream. Delish!"
