(We see the palace, then we head down to the streets,
where RASOUL and a couple of other GUARDS are obviously chasing
RASOUL: Stop that ... thing!
(Now we see what the GUARDS are chasing -– MOZENRATH’S
slippery accomplice, XERXES. As he flies around a corner, he begins
to taunt the GUARDS.)
XERXES: Thing, stop thing, stop thing! (He laughs and flies off
(The GUARDS continue to chase.)
HAKIM: What is it, anyway?
RASOUL: Who cares? It's evil, it's ugly, it—
FAZAL: It bites!
(We see the backs of the GUARDS now, revealing a hole in FAZAL’S
pants. XERXES, still flying a little way off, obviously hears this.)
XERXES: I bite, I bite! Hee hee hee! (He flies off again.)
(The GUARDS continue to chase XERXES until he comes to a dead end.
XERXES comes to a halt just before he hits the wall, gasps, and
turns to see the GUARDS gaining on him. The GUARDS begin to advance
RASOUL: Good job, men. The beast is trapped.
(XERXES looks fearful; then a voice out of the darkness startles
MOZENRATH: No. You are trapped.
(RASOUL looks back over his shoulder.)
RASOUL: What? Who dares?
(We see MOZENRATH’S silhouette, which we zoom in on. After
he says his name, we see him clearly –- he is young, well
dressed and has a glove on one hand.)
MOZENRATH: I am Mozenrath, Lord of the Black Sand.
(He is holding some sand in his gloved hand, which he blows in
the direction of the GUARDS. They struggle and yell out as the sand
envelops them, but it is too strong, and soon the GUARDS all vanish.
XERXES flies over to MOZENRATH.)
XERXES: Black sand, black sand! (MOZENRATH pets him.)
MOZENRATH: Yes, Xerxes. And there’s plenty more where that
(We move to the palace, during the day. RASOUL and
all the other GUARDS are carrying barrels and setting them down
near the palace wall. They all appear to be in a trance as they
do so. From a balcony above, we hear IAGO.)
IAGO: That’s a lotta barrels. And you know they’re
filled to the brim with caviar.
(ABU joins him on the balcony, holding his nose
at the thought of caviar.)
IAGO: Don’t obsess on the fish eggs! This means the Sultan’s
throwing a party. A clam bake. A shindig. We’re gonna boogaloo
with the big-wigs tonight. (He starts heading off. ABU seems more
interested in this idea and begins to follow, both of them strutting
happily. Suddenly, IAGO stops.) Wait a minute. Nobody invited me
to this party!
||ABU: (After a moment, in his money talk) Me neither!
IAGO: Oh! Monkey, check my forehead! (He takes ABU’S paw and
places it to his forehead) I feel moral outrage coming on! Let’s
get to the bottom of this!
(On the word ‘bottom’,
IAGO slaps ABU on the back, and he falls off the balcony, screeching
as he falls. IAGO flies down and catches him before he hits the
ground, and the two of them perch on a couple of the barrels.)
(They have to scarper since RASOUL puts down another barrel where
IAGO: (To RASOUL) Didn’t invite us, eh? Bird
and money cramp the royal style! Hah! (When he doesn’t get
any response from RASOUL, IAGO flies after him) Well, you just tell
Sultan... (RASOUL continues to walk, staring straight ahead. IAGO
realizes something is wrong.) Hey. Rasoul? (He snaps a couple of
feathers together as a human would fingers -– no response.)
Anybody home? Focus. Focus. (RASOUL slaps his hands together, squashing
IAGO between them. RASOUL continues toward the palace and IAGO falls
to the ground, where ABU joins him.) He’s moody today.
(In the garden at the palace, ALADDIN and JASMINE are standing
ALADDIN: Aw, Jasmine, you’re not still mad, are ya?
JASMINE: I’m not mad, Aladdin, just ... irritated.
ALADDIN: But ... the Caliph was boring! (He imitates the Caliph)
I’ve got gold, I’ve got palaces, blah, blah, blah.
JASMINE: Be that as it may, at official dinners we do not suddenly
wow them with a fruit juggling trick.
ALADDIN: (Laughing) It was worth it just to see the Caliph with
grapes up his nose. (We see RASOUL enter and place a barrel on the
ground. He tips it up and snakes made of the black sand slither
off toward ALADDIN and JASMINE.) Blah, blah, blah, I’ve got
grapes up my nose.
JASMINE: (Beginning to laugh, then controlling herself.) Ahem. Aladdin,
that was not funny.
ALADDIN: Ah, I don’t get it. Fighting monsters: okay. Fighting
boredom: not okay. (He turns and starts to walk off.)
JASMINE: (Chuckling) Actually, I don’t care for the monster
fighting, either. (She looks down as a couple of the sand snakes
take hold of her arms. She gasps, and is quickly enveloped by the
(Inside the palace, we see JASMINE walking with a barrel, the same
as the GUARDS. She passes a door and IAGO and ABU stick their heads
IAGO: Bingo! Princess and caviar. Come on. Don’t let on we
know about the party. (ABU chatters his agreement and follows IAGO.
IAGO flies up to JASMINE.) Whoa-ho-ho, Princess! Don’t strain
yourself with that great big barrel. Let us carry that. (He takes
the barrel from JASMINE’S hands.) Here — Abu, carry
that. (He drops it toward ABU, who catches it. IAGO flies down and
lands beside him.) What craftsmanship! What do you suppose is in
it, Abu? (ABU is almost dropping the barrel and chatters a little.
JASMINE is still standing there, staring blankly ahead. ABU puts
the barrel down and he and IAGO pull the top off. IAGO looks inside.)
Ooh, look — caviar! How nice! (To JASMINE) You’re throwin’
a party, aren’t ya? (JASMINE still stares straight ahead.)
Funny how – hey (He looks back in the barrel) That’s
not caviar, it’s just a bunch of black sand. (He takes some
out and drops it back into the barrel, then dusts his wings
off. As he does so, JASMINE whacks him. ABU meekly puts the lid
back on the barrel, JASMINE picks it up and continues on her way.
IAGO groans after sliding down the wall he hit and looks after JASMINE.)
Princess? (To ABU) Is somethin’ in the water supply? Everybody’s
so moody today. Fine! We don’t wanna go to your stupid party!
(They don’t notice ALADDIN standing behind them.)
ALADDIN: What party? (IAGO flies up to his shoulder.)
IAGO: You weren’t invited either? Whew, I feel better.
ALADDIN: Ah, Jasmine must really be mad. All because of my stupid
‘wow them with the fruit juggling’ trick.
IAGO: At least Jasmine didn’t smack you! Who needs their stinkin’
party, and their, uh – their dumb old black sand?
ALADDIN: Did you say ‘black sand’?
IAGO: Yeah. I also said Jasmine smacked me. I would think that’s
the more important point of the story.
ALADDIN: Where did Jasmine go?
(In another room in the palace, we see the lamp.
From inside come the sounds of Genie telling jokes in a German accent
to a laughing crowd.)
GENIE: (as emcee) Ladies und bergermeisers! Tonight at the Hoffrau
(sp?), one night only, it's: Der Oom-Pa-Pa Genie! (audience cheers)
(A blue hand comes out briefly, then disappears back into the lamp.)
GENIE: (as comedian) Danke shoen. I woulda been here earlier, but
I had a run in my lederhosen. (audience laughs)
(A hand then knocks on the lamp and we hear GENIE’S voice
from inside the lamp.)
GENIE: Who is it? Did someone knock? Hello?
(During this second sentence, JASMINE tips the sand out of a barrel
onto the floor, then places the barrel on the ground. When he gets
no answer, GENIE comes out of the lamp as a one-man-band, making
a lot of noise. He looks around, but the room is deserted.)
GENIE: Hello? (He sees the barrel and gasps.) A barrel! I’ve
been visited by the Barrel Fairy! Thank-you, Barrel Fairy! Thank-you,
wherever you are! Oh-ho —huh? (He looks in the barrel) Empty.
Oh, what a rip. Barrel Fairy brought me a bogus barrel? Oh, there’s
gotta be something! (He puts a hand into the barrel, then his head.)
Barrel Fairy, don't forsake me now! (He doesn’t notice the
sand on the floor. ALADDIN bursts into the room.)
(The sand grabs GENIE, pulling him into the puddle. ALADDIN takes
(The puddle of sand on the floor is moving.)
IAGO: It’s digesting? (As the puddle begins to grow again)
(The puddle seemingly releases GENIE, but like the GUARDS and JASMINE,
he merely stares straight ahead. ALADDIN looks relieved and smiles
ALADDIN: You’re okay! (No response.) Genie? Are you hurt?
(We see IAGO and ABU. We hear ALADDIN get hit and he slides past
IAGO: It’s that moody thing again! The sand does it to them!
(ALADDIN rubs his head, then looks after GENIE in puzzlement. GENIE
steps out of the puddle and heads off. ALADDIN, IAGO and ABU follow
him at a distance.)
IAGO: What’s the sand do to them?
ALADDIN: I don’t know.
(We see GENIE disappear around a corner. The others follow him.)
IAGO: Rasoul, Jasmine, Genie. It’s like their brains have
been sucked right out of their heads.
(ALADDIN looks around a pillar, gasps, then turns back to the others.)
ALADDIN: I hope that’s not the case.
(He looks back around the pillar. We see JASMINE. GENIE joins her
and the two of them start off down the corridor.)
IAGO: Eh, I also have an ‘evil twin’ theory.
ALADDIN: Let’s find out what’s going on.
(We appear to be in the dungeon. ALADDIN, IAGO and ABU are looking
through a crack in a door. GENIE and JASMINE are just standing there,
mute as ever.)
ALADDIN: What are they doing in Jafar’s room?
(We hear MOZENRATH’S voice from inside the room.)
MOZENRATH: Our grand deception is going splendidly, my sleepy-eyed
(Outside, ALADDIN blanches and opens the door further, seeing MOZENRATH.)
ALADDIN: Ah-ha. Just as I thought. Where there’s black sand,
IAGO: So what’re you gonna do? Bust in there and stomp him?
ALADDIN: No. Jasmine may be in danger. We can’t let him know
we’re on to him.
(They hurry off as XERXES pokes his head around the door. He looks
around, but ALADDIN, IAGO and ABU are hiding behind the door and
he doesn’t see them.)
MOZENRATH: We must continue the ruse until the Sultan is captured.
(XERXES goes again and ALADDIN, IAGO and ABU breathe a sigh of relief.)
MOZENRATH: (To JASMINE) You are the one who can get close enough
to him to accomplish that. (He hands her a barrel.) Now go! Take
(ALADDIN, IAGO and ABU have been peering through the door again,
and hide behind it again as JASMINE exits.)
IAGO: Ooh, poor Sultan’s next.
ALADDIN: Not if I can help it.
(JASMINE walks down a corridor with the barrel. ALADDIN hurries
up to her.)
ALADDIN: Hey, Jas! What’s in the barrel? (He tries to take
it from her, but she pulls it away. ALADDIN looks after her, puzzled,
then catches her by the arm.) Jasmine, I really think we need to
talk — (JASMINE’S arm comes off in ALADDIN’S hand.
He gasps and holds it up – it has turned into the arm of a
MAMLUK. In fact, it was a MAMLUK all along – we see him now,
and he moans at ALADDIN. ALADDIN drops the arm on the ground in
(Setting down the barrel, the MAMLUK reattaches his arm and turns
back into an image of JASMINE. He picks up the barrel and continues
down the corridor.)
IAGO: Wow ... beauty is only skin deep.
ALADDIN: It’s not Jasmine. Mozenrath replaced her with a mamluk!
Which means the real Jasmine is trapped somewhere! ... but where?
(ABU climbs up onto his shoulder and starts chattering at him —we
see GENIE coming from behind them. IAGO notices too, and tugs on
IAGO: Al? Big blue zombie at twelve o’clock!
(ALADDIN sees him too, and ABU begins to chatter in a frightened
way. GENIE continues to advance on them, and ALADDIN, IAGO and ABU
start to back away.)
IAGO: I wanna speak to Genie — the real Genie, deep inside.
(GENIE thumps the ground, and ALADDIN gets out of the way just
ALADDIN: Iago, it’s a mamluk too! There is no Genie deep
(They scarper as GENIE punches the pillar they were standing in
front of. ALADDIN ducks behind a column, then sneaks out again brandishing
ALADDIN: ... which means I don’t have to worry about hurting
(He smashes the vase on GENIE’S back, but it just shatters
and GENIE moans.)
IAGO: (To ABU) What about him hurting us?
(ABU makes to fight. We see JASMINE walking off and hear ALADDIN.)
ALADDIN: No, Abu! Stop Jasmine!
(ALADDIN is struggling against GENIE.)
ALADDIN: Don’t let her get to Sultan! (He continues to struggle.)
IAGO: Good idea. Girls don’t hit quite so hard.
(They start to run off after JASMINE, but skid to a halt and turn
back toward ALADDIN, still struggling against a very tight GENIE
ALADDIN: Go on! Save the Sultan!
(The SULTAN is in the throne-room, balancing a few mechanical elephants
on top of one another and humming to himself. JASMINE appears and
SULTAN: Oh! Jasmine, you startled me. I didn’t hear you come
(JASMINE takes the lid off the barrel. Black sand comes out. We
switch back to a corridor, where GENIE is carrying ALADDIN, still
IAGO: We can’t just leave Al. (To ABU) Go on, help him!
(He pushes ABU, then CARPET comes flying down the corridor. He
sees what’s happening and flies over to ALADDIN to help by
pulling on GENIE’S wrist.)
IAGO: (Flying up to GENIE) Here’s a little trick called a
Mongolian Hair Pull! (He grabs GENIE’s hair and starts pulling.
Before he gets too far, GENIE’S entire head comes off. IAGO
is now carrying a MAMLUK head.) Aah! Gross! (He drops the head in
(GENIE’S body also turns back into the MAMLUK and ALADDIN
manages to get free.)
ALADDIN: Thanks, guys.
(He goes over to the MAMLUK, who swipes at him but misses, then
grabs ABU and starts squeezing him. He chatters, and ALADDIN taps
the MAMLUK’s shoulder.)
ALADDIN: ‘Scuse me ... you got a loose thread back there.
(Indeed, we see the loose thread in the MAMLUK’S back. ALADDIN
pulls it, and the MAMLUK falls to pieces. A hand tries to grab ABU
but he kicks it away and laughs. ALADDIN zooms past on CARPET and
picks him up by the tail.)
ALADDIN: There’s no time to lose!
(JASMINE is leading a blindfolded SULTAN somewhere.)
SULTAN: Jasmine, I really don’t understand the point of this
(We now see that she is leading him towards a pool of black sand
on the floor.)
SULTAN: And you’re so quiet. Is something troubling you?
(He cries out as he falls into the sand, but just in time ALADDIN
(He pulls the SULTAN’S wrists and the SULTAN takes off the
SULTAN: Aladdin, what’s going on?
ALADDIN: There’s no time to explain right now.
IAGO: Al, look out!
(JASMINE is running toward them. She knocks ALADDIN off CARPET.
The SULTAN cries out as he is sucked down into the sand again, but
ABU grabs his wrist, then IAGO grabs ABU and CARPET grabs IAGO.
ALADDIN and JASMINE continue to struggle. ALADDIN throws her over
his head, but she gets up and jumps at him again. ABU, IAGO and
CARPET pull the SULTAN out of the sand. He pulls himself together
for a couple of seconds before he notices ALADDIN and JASMINE.)
SULTAN: Jasmine, Aladdin, why are you fighting?
(ALADDIN and JASMINE continue to fight. Now we see MOZENRATH and
XERXES wandering down a corridor. We see MAMLUK pieces they haven’t
MOZENRATH: Agrabah’s so clean and wholesome. I’m really
loving darkening its doorstep.
XERXES: Dark door, dark door!
(MOZENRATH notices the MAMLUK pieces and gasps.)
MOZENRATH: What’s this?
XERXES: Mamluk pieces.
(IAGO is watching ALADDIN still struggling with JASMINE.)
IAGO: Go, Al, go! Remember it’s not Jasmine, it’s a
(JASMINE pushes ALADDIN over to the window and hangs him out of
it. Hanging by his feet, he sees a pool of black sand below the
window. He grabs onto the window ledge, then when JASMINE pushes
him fully out the window he simply jumps back in and pushes her
out instead. The SULTAN sees all this happening.)
SULTAN: NO! (He rushes over to the window.)
ALADDIN: Sultan, wait!
(The SULTAN looks out of the window.)
(JASMINE is hanging on the window ledge. She grabs the SULTAN,
then lets go of the ledge and they both fall. ALADDIN makes a grab
at the SULTAN as he falls.)
(The SULTAN and JASMINE both fall into the pool of black sand.)
(XERXES flies in and chuckles as he turns somersaults over the
XERXES: Black sand, black sand!
(We see ALADDIN at the window above, then he goes back into the
ALADDIN: I’m going after Sultan. Carpet. (CARPET flies over.)
Find me a chain, or a ... a rope, something. (CARPET flies off and
ALADDIN calls out after him.) Something long!
IAGO: Going after Sultan? How? Where?
ALADDIN: Into the sand.
(He looks startled as MOZENRATH enters through the throne room
MOZENRATH: Aladdin! I applaud you. Truly one for the textbooks.
Except for the end there, where you lost Sultan. Still, an ‘A’
for effort, friend. An ‘A’ for effort.
ALADDIN: Don’t call me friend.
(A couple of the GUARDS grab ALADDIN. He struggles against them.)
ALADDIN: Let go!
MOZENRATH: Easy now, muscles. Don’t make them use force.
(XERXES flies in through the window.)
XERXES: Sultan captured!
MOZENRATH: Excellent, Xerxes.
ALADDIN: You — what have you done with them?
MOZENRATH: You’re about to find out. First-hand.
(He is holding a lump of black sand in his hand. ALADDIN struggles
against the GUARDS and MOZENRATH blows the sand toward ALADDIN as
IAGO and ABU look on, looking very worried. The sand forms a puddle
below ALADDIN. MOZENRATH turns on his heel and exits; XERXES chuckles
at ALADDIN, then follows. We see IAGO and ABU still hiding behind
a pillar, still watching.)
MOZENRATH: Getting in was the easy part. Your so-called guards
were more like escorts. (MOZENRATH is now seated on the throne.)
In fact, (he yawns) now that I’ve won, there’s no need
to keep up appearances.
(He snaps his fingers and the GUARDS revert to their original MAMLUK
form. MOZENRATH steps down off the throne and goes over to a window.)
MOZENRATH: The deception is over. Agrabah is mine to rule. I’ve
made prisoners of the royal family. Princess Jasmine of course made
for such a delightful victim. When she was swallowed by the sand,
she gave out the most ... blood-curdling scream. (He laughs.) She’s
ALADDIN: You made one mistake, Mozenrath.
MOZENRATH: Really? A mistake? What would that be, tell me puh-leeze.
ALADDIN: You saved me for last!
(He struggles free of the MAMLUKS, but before he gets very far,
MOZENRATH zaps him, lifting him into the air. We see MOZENRATH as
ALADDIN might from above.)
MOZENRATH: I meant to. You’re so much fun to gloat to.
XERXES: Gloat, gloat!
||MOZENRATH: Well, it’s time for good-bye, Aladdin.
MOZENRATH: Assure the Sultan that my mamluks love the royal decor.
Oh, and my fond regards to the princess.
XERXES: Fond regards, fond regards! (He blows a kiss.)
(MOZENRATH snaps his fingers and ALADDIN falls into the pool. He
MOZENRATH: Xerxes, you punctuated my moment beautifully.
(We see IAGO and ABU again.)
IAGO: Al? I'll miss his two-fisted antics. (ABU crosses his arms.)
What? What can I do?
(CARPET flies back in through the window with a length of rope,
which he ties around a column. He takes the other end and flies
right into the black sand.)
ABU: All right, Carpet!
IAGO: Hah. Well, I was just gonna do that. I swear!
(We now find ourselves in a strange land full of the black sand.
As the camera moves, we see SULTAN, JASMINE and the GUARDS up over
their ankles in the sand.)
JASMINE: Where is this place? It’s so strange.
(RASOUL tries to free his leg, but with no success.)
RASOUL: Some royal guardsman I am. Tricked by a flying, simpleton
JASMINE: It couldn’t be helped. Who knew Mozenrath was up
(One of the puddles begins to boil and GENIE emerges dressed in
GENIE: Here’s the plan: we get out the same way we got in!
JASMINE: Did you see anything?
GENIE: Goop. Tons of it.
SULTAN: My kingdom, my people ... under Mozenrath’s evil rule.
GENIE: Don’t worry — there’s hope while Al’s
out there stopping mamluks!
(A large bubble appears. It bursts, and ALADDIN appears, stuck
in the goop.)
ALADDIN: How do we get outta here?
HAKIM: So much for our hope.
GENIE: Don’t worry. There’s still Carpet, Abu and Iago!
(Another bubble. CARPET pops out of this one.)
GENIE: Oh, let’s face it: we’re doomed.
(CARPET reaches down and pulls out the rope. GENIE grins and kisses
GENIE: I think that I shall never hug a friend I love more than
(He hugs CARPET, but gets stuck to him with some of the goop.)
GENIE: Ah ... a little help?
(We see the puddle of black sand on the throne room floor and hear
IAGO: I don’t like this. What if they don’t come back?
You’re gonna have to save the day.
IAGO: Coward. Al would do it for you.
(They duck back behind the pillar as XERXES flies in to inspect
XERXES: What this, what this? Rope.
(IAGO pushes ABU out from behind the pillar.)
IAGO: Get him!
(XERXES sniffs the puddle.)
XERXES: Mozenra—(He is cut short as ABU tackles him.)
(ABU and XERXES struggle. Out on the balcony, MOZENRATH hears this
and starts to turn around. IAGO flies over and perches himself on
IAGO: Mozenrath! Bubby. Can we talk? (ABU and XERXES continue to
struggle.) You seem like a guy who’s goin’ places. A
real Renaissance wizard. I could, you know, be your sidekick. That
freaky eel doesn’t do anything for your image, trust me! What
you need is a parrot!
(ABU is still struggling with XERXES. This time, MOZENRATH hears
MOZENRATH: What was that?
IAGO: (Desperately trying to get MOZENRATH’S attention back)
Ah, I’ve got great sidekick credentials! You ever hear of
Jafar? You know, ah, tall guy, kinda snaky ...
MOZENRATH: Get out of my way!
(He hurries back into the throne room. When ABU sees him, he screeches
and releases XERXES, who smacks him one with his tail and flies
off. MOZENRATH goes over to the pool of black sand on the floor
and kneels down by it.)
MOZENRATH: Ah, some people don’t know when to give up.
(A large blue hand comes out of the sand and flicks MOZENRATH,
sending him sprawling across the floor and crashing into a pillar.
GENIE: And some people just don’t know when to shut up!
(He pulls the rope out of the sand and an elevator comes out. The
door opens to reveal GENIE, dressed as a lift boy, ALADDIN, SULTAN,
JASMINE and the GUARDS.)
GENIE: Next floor: evil wizards, wacky slug fest and happy endings.
Everybody off. (EVERYBODY exits the elevator at a run.)
(The MAMLUKS look around. ALADDIN tackles one, CARPET trips up
another, RASOUL fights yet another, pushing him over FAZAL. ALADDIN
struggles with one, throwing it over his head and causing his arms
to completely fall off.)
ALADDIN: Yeuch, I’m never getting used to this.
MOZENRATH: This isn’t over yet, simps!
(GENIE materializes with a mirror, admiring a wig he’s wearing.)
GENIE: Hey, handsome ...
(MOZENRATH zaps them, but GENIE whacks the magic back towards MOZENRATH
with the mirror, who very quickly gets up and starts running the
MOZENRATH: No! (He runs, dives, and the magic breaks a hole in
the palace tower instead.)
(GENIE is sitting in a referee’s chair, watching the action.)
GENIE: Game point!
(MOZENRATH is dangling out the window, his gloved hand holding
the ledge. ALADDIN comes over to the window and offers MOZENRATH
ALADDIN: Take my hand.
(MOZENRATH grasps his wrist and pulls himself up a little.)
MOZENRATH: I’d much rather take your life!
(He falls — ALADDIN catches hold of his glove, which comes
off, revealing a skeletal hand beneath. MOZENRATH, having fallen
a little way and having caught onto another ledge with his good
hand, stares at it in horror a moment.)
MOZENRATH: No ... (He can’t hold on any longer and falls.)
ALADDIN!! (He yells as he falls, but something catches him before
he hits the pool of sand at the bottom of the tower. He looks up.
XERXES is holding him up by his cape.) Yes! Xerxes! Good toady!
(But he’s too heavy, and the cape rips. MOZENRATH falls into
the sand. XERXES spits the piece of cape out and looks up angrily.)
XERXES: Hmph. We’ll return, Aladdin! We’ll return! Don’t
think we won’t! We will return! (A safe falls on him, sending
him into the pool as well. GENIE and ALADDIN are at the window above.)
GENIE: I had a spare safe lying around. What was I to do with it?
(Later, IAGO is relaxing in the palace.)
IAGO: Boy, am I glad that's over.
(He hears footsteps and looks around. GENIE comes in the door with
a barrel on his back. He is staring straight ahead. IAGO begins
to back away from him.)
IAGO: That stinkin’ eel wasn’t kidding. They did return
with more of that black sand! (He flops onto a cushion. ABU is on
the other side. ABU turns and moans at IAGO, acting like GENIE too.)
AAH! The monkey’s a mamluk! Let me outta here! (He zooms out
the window where ALADDIN and JASMINE are standing. They shrug at
each other and inside we see GENIE and ABU shaking hands.)
ALADDIN: Hey, guys.
JASMINE: What’s with Iago?
GENIE: Beats me. (ABU shrugs.) But he’s gonna miss the Sultan’s
(ALADDIN and JASMINE smile at each other; GENIE takes the lid off
GENIE: Oh, well. More caviar for us, eh?
(Monkey-chatter from ABU at this.)
