Kapok: (Laughs) Speaking of feeling... (The heart shaped emblem
on Kapok's chest glows red. Kapok's head begins to rise off of
his body. Kapok stops it) ...the shackle, bring me the shackle!
(The guards hand Kapok a golden shackle. He places it around his
neck and locks it with a key.) Don't bother struggling, Fair Heart.
This is one head that's staying put!
Iago: I knew it! I've never met a good wizard!
Kapok: Ah, the bird proves to be quite the thinker.
Iago: Uh, I try. I have a pretty high IQ. As birds go, that is.
Kapok: More than I can say for our hero.
Genie: Who are you calling stupid? Just because Al fell for your
trick, came all the way out here to reattach your head... gee,
I guess that was kinda stupid.
Kapok: No body's stupid here. My brilliant logic took advantage
of Aladdin's greatest flaw: his fairness of heart. The same malady
that plagues my foolish body.
Jasmine: So it is your head that's evil!
Kapok: (Laughs) Evil is so subjective. Let's say my body rejected
its head because of its emotionlessness. Were it not for my body's
very desirable powers, I would actually quite prefer to be just
Aladdin: Yeah? I think we can fix that! (Aladdin grabs at Kapok's
shackle. Kapok throws him back with magic.) Yah!
Kapok: I pity you, Aladdin. Unlike myself, your fair heart is
dominant and clouds your thinking. Let me allow you to think more
clearly. (Kapok places his hand together. They emanate with a
red glow. As Kapok raises his hands, Aladdin's head separates
from his body.)
Aladdin: (Feeling his neck-less body) Wha? What's happening to
(Kapok waves his hands; Aladdin's head appears in Genie's hands.)
(Abu runs up Aladdin's body. He reaches his shoulders, and sighs
with relief. He realizes that Aladdin's head and neck are gone,
Genie: Al, buddy, say something!
Aladdin: It appears that my head has been separated from my body.
Genie: Al, you're okay!
Aladdin: If you mean that contrary to my appearance I am not
experiencing pain, you are correct.
Genie: Whatever. (Seeing Aladdin's body) Al, you're okay too!
(Aladdin approaches his head; he takes it from Genie and attempts
to place it back onto his body.)
Aladdin: Whoa! (His head falls into Genie's hands) A simple visual
analysis would have indicated that we cannot be so easily reassembled.
Jasmine: (To Kapok) As Princess of Agrabah, I demand you rejoin
Aladdin's head to his body.
Kapok: Now don't run away with your emotions, Princess! I've
done Aladdin a favor. A favor from which it seems you could all
Iago: What, so you can use us for a bunch of croquet balls? I
don't think so. (Kapok attempts to do the same spell, but Jasmine
dodges. He ends up knocking the head off of a statue, shattering
(Aladdin runs toward Kapok.)
Kapok: My magic can destroy you as well, Aladdin. (Blasts magic
Aladdin: My non-conceptualizing half fails to realize is that
if he ceases to be, my ambulatory capabilities will be severely
Genie: Come again?
Iago: If Al's torso gets friend, brainiac here will never walk
Genie: (Grabs Aladdin's body.) Hey buddy, your head's got a point.
It's not safe for you to be running around like a chicken with
its... uh, bad analogy. (The gang leaves on Carpet)
Kapok: Intelligent choice, Aladdin. Had you heeded your heart,
you would be a dead head. (The heart shaped emblem on Kapok's
chest glows red.) And you, Fair Heart, can stop your struggling.
I'm in control of this body now!
(Setting: Upanistan; Day)
(Aladdin's head's is resting on a barrel; he is talking to his
Aladdin: You think we should have stayed and fought, do you?
Well you can't punch your way through everything. You must approach
problems logically once in a while. I mean, you have a head, me
namely, use it. (Aladdin picks up his head and spins it in the
air.) Whoa! (He starts juggling it.)
Genie: Taught him that trick the first time we met.
Aladdin: This is not what I meant by using your head, thank you.
Jasmine: Aladdin...(He throws his head to her) ...guys, try to
get along. We've got to think of something. (Aladdin's body makes
a pantomime laughing gesture)
Aladdin: I fear my body is all fight and no contemplation. (His
body seems offended) Oh, there's more to you than that?
Jasmine: (Aladdin hands her a flower) Uh... thank you.
Aladdin: How droll. A tangible representation of the heart's
Iago: Romance? You mean romance? Why can't you just say it?
Genie: Ah, he's a lover and a fighter!
Jasmine: (Puts Aladdin's head down onto a barrel) Look, there's
nothing wrong with romance. (Aladdin is holding on to her arm)
At the right time and place. (Aladdin backs away.)
Aladdin: If you say so...
Jasmine: What do you mean?
Aladdin: Frankly, I am not engrossed by such idle pastimes as
Jasmine: (Gasps) But... all the times we've strolled under the
moonlight or when you've remarked on my beauty...
Aladdin: Please. You're confusing me with him. We're quite dissimilar.
Genie: Excuse us. (Leads Jasmine away.)
Aladdin: Though I do admire your cranial line. For sheer functionality,
Genie: Don't let him mess with your head, Princess. He's not
Jasmine: (Sits down on some stairs) I know, I know. It's the
brain talking; it's the brain talking.
(Abu climbs up the barrel)
Aladdin: Abu, old friend. I'm sure it's difficult to see me this
way. (Abu nods) Well, worry not. You'll grow accustomed, and it'll
be just like old times. (Abu chatters excitedly) Except with less
eating and more reading. (Abu sighs) Food for thought. We'll make
you smart as a chimpanzee. (Abu glares at Aladdin and heads toward
Jasmine: Okay, here's the plan. Kapok is the only one capable
of rejoining Aladdin's head and body. As long as Kapok's head
dominates the kind-hearted body, he will not reverse the spell.
Genie: Which means head's got to go.
Aladdin: An excellent display of logical thought. However, I
have decided to remain as you see me. (The gang gasps) True, it
means sacrificing that on the go lifestyle, but the benefits are
many. No more body odor, for instance. But most of all, I no longer
have to think with my heart. (His body scratches his nose and
makes a questioning gesture.) You want to know who will scratch
my nose? Smart guy, I would gladly be a free-floating mental gel
if I could.
Jasmine: Aladdin, how can you say that?
Aladdin: Neurotransmitters, millions of tiny ones in the brain
which relay messages to the mouth.
Jasmine: That's not what I meant.
Genie: Talk, talk, talk. (Picks up Aladdin's head.) You're coming
with us, gabby.
(Setting: The Palace of Upanistan)
(Jasmine, Abu, Iago, and Carpet are sneaking down a hallway.)
Jasmine: You okay?
(Genie's body turns the corner; Aladdin's head is on his shoulders.)
Aladdin: At least I'm no longer at the mercy of my misdirected
body's whims. (Genie's body gives him bunny ears) I saw that.
Genie: (Comes around the corner; his head is on Aladdin's body)
My bod's got some mileage, but it's got power in a pinch. And
I can keep an eye on you. (Aladdin's body flicks Genie in the
back of the head.) D'oh!
(Jasmines shushes everyone; the guards walk past, a musician
with them. Jasmine and the others sneak to Kapok's balcony.)
(Setting: Kapok's Throne room)
Musician: But what is my crime? I am but a musician.
Kapok: Exactly. Music serves no logical purpose. It only perpetuates
emotion and feeling. I sentence you to cut down 400 trees from
our local forest from which you will craft 1200 lutes.
Musician: But you said music served no logical purpose.
Kapok: It doesn't. (Takes the musician's lute) But it makes excellent
firewood. (Throws the lute into a fire) To the dungeons with him!
Genie: (Aladdin is ready to attack) Easy, fella. Don't go doing
anything ration... whoa! (Aladdin jumps off the balcony, knocking
Genie's head off of him. Aladdin's body swings off of a chandelier
and slides down a tapestry.)
Kapok: (Turning around, with a smile) Ah, company. (The heart
shaped emblem flashes red) Look, Fair Heart, it's your friend.
