And besides, what does it matter if Beba is good at some things? You're good at some other things that Beba isn't good at, I bet.
―Pumbaa to Kopa[src]

Afua's fast-growing friendship with Beba causes Kopa to go to Timon and Pumbaa for advice. The young cub tells his friends that Afua has been spending more and more time with Beba and has started comparing the cheetah cub to Kopa. In order to sort out the problem, Timon and Pumbaa tell him a story about their time in the jungle with Simba. After the story, Kopa scampers off to make amends with Afua.
