However, none of Timon's ideas work, so Pumbaa suggests that he and Timon use the jeep so that they carry a fake bag of bugs which have firecrackers inside to distract the Guinea fowl while Sharla and the other warthogs leave the hut with the real bag of bugs.
Although Sharla banished Pumbaa from the group, they still have romantic feelings for each other. When Pumbaa and Timon show up to the hut, they tell each other that they have never forgotten one another.
