Bentley: Now, the local spice plants are illegal for good reasons - eat too many, and you'll go into a fit of uncontrolled rage.
Sly: Keep that stuff away from Murray...
― Bentley and Sly, discussing the illegal spices[src]
Bentley points out the local spice plants are illegal for a good reason: eat too much and you will go into an uncontrolled rage. Sly states they should keep it away from Murray, but he then gets what the plan is. He will put some spice plants into the elephant's feed bag and when the elephant eats the plants, it will get all crazy and the satellite will have no power. The only catch here is that Sly will need to do some serious climbing as, according to Bentley, the plants only grow high up in the jungle canopy.
After Sly gathers all six spice plants, he takes them to the elephant's feed bag. Once he does so, the elephant then eats the food from its feed bag, causing it to go into an uncontrolled rage and snap out of its restraints, leaving the satellite out of order.
