(Setting: the desert just outside of Agrabah,
(Farouk the merchant has a cart full of melons led by a camel,
but the camel refuses to move. Farouk tries pulling the camel forward,
to no avail. Tired, he stops for a drink of water from his canteen.
As he does this, the ground begins to shake. He looks around: there's
nothing there. As he takes another sip, something appears in front
of him, casting a huge shadow.)
(Setting: the marketplace)
Aladdin: (sigh) Some feast I'm planning
for Jasmine. All I can afford is this bag of rice.
Genie: Do not despair, mon capitan! (appears
as a chef) I, Chef Genie, will create a culinary masterpiece
for your loved one: Turkey Surprise! La petite monkey,
(Abu opens the sack of rice, and an ostrich wearing ballet
slippers, like the ones in Fantasia, jumps out.)
Genie: Merci, Babette. Over there, s’il
vous plaît. And why not put those feather dusters to
work as you go, huh? Now, ze milk!
(A cow's head pops out of the sack and moos.)
Genie: And now, the secret ingredient that makes
my Turkey Surprise: the turkey! (reaches into the sack and pulls
Iago: Watch it, mandrake!
Aladdin: (sigh) Thanks, Genie, but it's
not the same.
Iago: Ooh, if that genie touches
me, what a hit I'm gonna give 'im. Right in the schnoz.
Aladdin: I wanna do things for Jasmine on my own.
And that takes money!
Iago: Hey, Einstein! Ever hear of the sultan?
He likes you. He'll let you have all kinds of riches.
Aladdin: I don't want other people's
Iago: Ugh, the kid's delirious.
Genie: Al, stop this, you're depressing me! How
about we take your mind off your bank account with donuts? (holds
up a box of donuts)
Farouk: (pushing through the crowd) A
(A giant dorsal fin crashes through the city wall, as if a
giant shark is burrowing through the sand. It "swims"
down the street, destroying merchants' stalls, while people run
screaming in all directions. When it approaches the gang, Aladdin
and Genie jump to either side, but Abu can't get out of the way
in time, and ends up grabbing the dorsal fin and riding it.)
Abu: Aladdin! Aladdin!
Genie: (turns his hand into a phone)
Operator! Get me the fire department! (turns into a fire engine
and races after the shark, but runs into a wall) Make that
(Aladdin is flying overhead on Carpet, and sees the shark head
for the palace.)
Aladdin: (gasp) Oh no, Jasmine!
(Setting: the palace. The sultan is placing
tiles on the floor as Jasmine watches.)
Sultan: There, all done.
Jasmine: It's a lovely mosaic, Father.
Sultan: Ooh, yes yes yes, I'm quite proud of it
(The giant dorsal fin crashes through the door and enters the
room, destroying the mosaic and knocking Jasmine and Sultan to either
side. It goes out the other side of the room, with Abu still hanging
on. Aladdin enters on Carpet, following it.)
Aladdin: Sultan, are you all right?
Sultan: Yes, but if that monkey doesn't slow down,
someone's going to get hurt!
(Genie, as a trapeze artist, swings down and rescues Abu.)
Genie: Hey, we'd be big time in the big top. Alley
oop! (tosses Abu to Aladdin and Jasmine, on Carpet)
Jasmine: Aladdin, what was that
Aladdin: I don't know, but I don't think we've
seen the last of it.
(We see the fin "swimming" away from Agrabah.)
(Setting: the throne room, that evening. A group of merchants
has shown up to complain to the sultan while Rasoul watches over
them holding a giant axe. Sultan is pacing back and forth on the
balcony while Aladdin, Jasmine, Abu, and Iago watch.)
Farouk: Something must be done!
Merchant: I can't lose any more customers!
Omar: Your highness! (tries to step closer
to Sultan, but Rasoul blocks him with his axe) The monster
destroyed my stand and ate all of my wares!
Farouk: Forget his rotting fruit,
what about our lives?! What are you going to do about it?!
Sultan: Please, please! I assure you, I am exploring
all possibilities, not the least of which is—
Jasmine: A flying boat!
Sultan: Yes, a flying… what? Jasmine, this
is no time for—
Jasmine: No, look! (points out over the balcony)
(A flying ship floats into Agrabah, stopping when it reaches
the palace. We can now see the ship's captain, a tall man holding
Captain: I seek the Beast.
Iago: (whispering to Abu) Has
he tried a mirror lately?
Sultan: (under his breath)
Remarkable! (yelling) I'm afraid you have us at a
loss, Captain. (to Jasmine) Simply amazing!
Captain: I am called Murk. For twenty years I
have hunted the Seven Deserts for the Beast who swims the sands!
Sultan: It seems our interests
are mutual! What would be your price for capturing the Beast?
Murk: All I ask is a strong crew. Your gold means
nothing to me. The Beast winters in hidden caves filled with treasure.
The gold and jewel ransom of a thousand sultans has been pressed
into his belly. Riches such as this! (pulls a large diamond
out of his vest)
Iago: I love this town!
Murk: Half those riches will go to he who helps
me catch the Beast!
Iago: (to Aladdin) Simon
says, raise your hand!
Sultan: Indeed, Captain Murk, treasure
is no incentive to us, either! But we do need to protect our city.
For that reason, I offer my most courageous subject—
(Sultan starts to gesture toward Rasoul, but Aladdin jumps
in front of him.)
Aladdin: Aladdin's the name, but you can call
me Al. I am honored by your confidence, Sultan. I will not let you
Sultan: (confused) Uh, oh, very well.
Iago: That's my boy! (ruffles Aladdin's hair
and kisses his forehead)
Jasmine: I have a question for the captain: what
became of his last crew?
Murk: Better to ask the Beast. He is the one that
(Jasmine and Iago gasp; Aladdin looks nervous.)
(Setting: same place, the next morning.)
Murk: Prepare to cast off!
Aladdin: (to Jasmine) I guess it's time
to say goodbye…
Jasmine: Yes… Goodbye, Father, don't worry
Sultan: Jasmine! I had no idea!
Jasmine: (putting on a cape and climbing onto
the ship) You wouldn't let Aladdin risk his life for Agrabah
without me, would you?
Sultan: Well, actually…
Murk: No! I will not have it! Bad enough I sail
with a bird, a monkey, and a comedian!
Genie: (dressed as a pirate) Who, me?
Murk: I'll not be slowed by a useless woman!
Jasmine: Useless?! (takes Murk's harpoon off
him and throws it at the center of the ship's wheel, which Iago
is sitting on)
(Jasmine looks at Murk, smugly.)
Murk: (smirking) You
missed the parrot.
(Setting: the desert, later that day. Murk's ship flies over
the desert. Carpet is on lookout while Aladdin works the rigging
and Abu plays an accordion. Genie has turned his body into a mop
and is swabbing the deck. Murk sees Genie and is shocked.)
Abu: Uh oh!
Murk: So you are a genie.
Genie: What gave it away?
Murk: Magic won't save you. We all taste the same
to the Beast.
Genie: Jolly sorta guy, isn't he?
Iago: (hanging over the side of the boat)
Boy, am I seasick!
Aladdin: How can you be seasick? We're not even
Iago: Seasick, sandsick, I'm gagging and you're
killin' me with logic!
Jasmine: Maybe you just don't have what it takes to be
a hero, like my Aladdin.
Iago: Ugh, like my stomach isn't weak enough.
Jasmine: You were so brave to volunteer.
Aladdin: Well, sure, with all that treasure.
(Jasmine starts to walk away, offended.)
Aladdin: Not that I don't wanna save Agrabah!
Murk: The Beast is close!
(Aladdin and Jasmine look over the side and see the shark swimming
Murk: Ready the harpoon!
Aladdin: Yes, sir!
Murk: Not you! The girl! (hands his harpoon
(Something hits the ship.)
Murk: It is the Beast!
(The ship starts tilting to one side. Aladdin and Jasmine hang
onto the ship, but some crates onboard start sliding the other way.
One slides overboard and the shark swallows it.)
Murk: Time to conquer. (throws a harpoon at
the shark, which catches it in its teeth and chews it to pieces)
(Abu starts sliding toward the Beast.)
Aladdin: Abu! (slides after
Abu, grabbing him just before he reaches the shark)
Genie: Hope you buy those harpoons by the case!
(The shark swims away.)
Murk: Look how he laughs at us!
Iago: He's retreating! That's my luxury condo
swimming off, Captain!
Murk: Then we will use a little bait. (grabs
Abu) Here's a meal for you, Beast! (throws him overboard)
(The shark turns around and starts heading back to them.)
(Carpet is caught under one of the fallen crates and can't
Genie: Yes, sir! (turns into a fisherman)
Gonna catch me an amazing sand monkey! (casts toward Abu; a
banana is on the end of the line. When it lands in front of Abu,
the banana unpeels and a tiny Genie is inside) Just don't turn
(Abu turns around and sees the Beast right behind him.)
Genie: Told ya!
(The fisherman-Genie reels Abu in, and Jasmine catches him.)
Iago: You couldn't let him use you as bait, huh?
And they say I'm selfish.
(Abu tackles Iago.)
Murk: Come back and face me, Beast!
(The shark is swimming away again.)
Murk: I will chase you into the abyss of doom
and have your demon hide if I must feed you our souls in the bargain!
Genie: Our souls? Can he do that?
Jasmine: I don't know who's more
dangerous, the monster out there or the one running this ship.
Aladdin: (pointing) The rocks!
Genie: Whoa! Uh oh!
(Before they can do anything about it, the ship hits a rock
formation and stops.)
Murk: Bring the boat around! We cannot lose the
Genie: I don't think that's gonna be a problem.
(The shark is headed back toward the stranded ship.)
Murk: Better hold on, boy. He looks hungry.
Iago: That's it. We're seafood.
Aladdin: Genie, we've got to lift the ship!
Genie: You've got it! Here's one they loved down
at the auto club!
(Genie goes under the boat, turns into a jack
and raises it up. The boat is now free of the rocks.)
(The Beast comes up behind Genie and swallows him whole.)
Aladdin: Genie. Genie! No.
(The Beast swims away.)
Murk: We all taste the same to the Beast.
(Genie shoots up from under the sand.)
Genie: Yuck! (jumps into a bucket and starts
scrubbing himself with soap) Oh, ever been inside one of those?
It's like a flea market in there. That thing eats anything! (drops
an anchor, a safe, and a clay pot on the deck)
Jasmine: (hugging Genie) And Murk keeps
sending it customers.
Aladdin: Maybe this wasn't such a good idea.
(The ground starts to rumble.)
Abu: Uh oh…
(The shark jumps completely over the ship, showing the gold
and jewels pressed into its belly. Some of it falls down into the
ship as it passes overhead.)
Aladdin: (picking up a ruby) I never
dreamed! There's so much! The Beast was covered with treasure!
Genie: (turns his head into an old-fashioned
calculator) The jeweled ransom of a thousand sultans, minus
taxes, comes to a total of… Wow! His love handles alone could
Iago: Forget the condo, I'll buy a palace! (to
Jasmine) Uh, you'll give me a good price, right?
Murk: The Beast is headed south. We must move
Jasmine: That's wonderful! If the Beast is headed
south then Agrabah is safe! We can go home!
Aladdin: But Jasmine, the treasure!
Jasmine: My father has enough for us.
Aladdin: Those riches belong to the sultan! I
have to make my own!
Murk: What is it to be, boy? The girl or the gold?
Aladdin: I don't have to choose. Just one more day, Jasmine.
Murk: Twenty years, at most. (walks away)
Jasmine: He tried to feed Abu to the Beast. He
cares about nothing but the treasure. And you're becoming just like
(Setting: the ship, that night. Murk drops anchor and the boat
stops. He goes into the room where Jasmine is sleeping with Carpet
as her blanket. Carpet wakes up as he approaches, but Murk grabs
him and locks him in a chest.)
Jasmine: (groggily) Huh?
Uh, what's going on?
Murk: (pulling a small pouch out of his vest)
Nothing personal, Princess, but I am too close to catching
the Beast to risk losing my crew.
Jasmine: But Aladdin's staying—
(Murk throws the pouch at Jasmine; a gas comes out of it that
knocks Jasmine unconscious.)
Murk: (carrying Jasmine away) I have
seen men like your Aladdin. His eye may be on the treasure, but
it is his heart that does the thinking.
(Murk lowers the sleeping Jasmine over the side
of the boat and leaves her in the middle of the desert.)
Murk: Sleep well, Princess. (throws a bottle
of water onto the sand next to Jasmine)
(The ship leaves, and we can see the Beast approaching Jasmine
from a distance.)
(Setting: the ship, the next morning. Aladdin, Abu, and Iago
are asleep in a hammock in another room on the ship. There's a knocking
sound from outside that wakes them up.)
Aladdin: What's goin' on?
(The door bursts open and the chest containing
Carpet flies inside. Genie emerges from his lamp wearing his nightclothes.)
Genie: I think it's trying to tell us something.
What is it, Trunky? Timmy's stuck in the well again? (he zaps
the lock and Carpet flies out)
Aladdin: Carpet? What are…
(gasps) Where's Jasmine?
(Murk is steering the ship; Aladdin approaches him.)
Murk: The storm is getting worse. Secure the—
Aladdin: Where's Jasmine?
Murk: I put her on a trade route. A caravan will
pick her up. (Aladdin walks away) Where are you going?
What about the jewels?
Aladdin: Some things are worth more than treasure.
(climbs on Carpet with the others; they fly away)
(Setting: the desert. The wind is blowing fiercely and there
is thunder and lightning. Jasmine trudges through the desert.)
Jasmine: (sarcastically) Aladdin can't
save Agrabah without me. Look, I can throw a harpoon…
(Jasmine takes shelter from the wind behind some large rocks.
The ground starts to rumble. Jasmine gasps as she sees the Beast
(The others are flying towards where Jasmine was left, fighting
against the wind.)
Genie: Come on, rug-man! When the going gets tough,
the woven get goin'!
(Carpet can't fly against the wind any longer, and everyone
is thrown to the ground.)
Iago: Well, he went.
Aladdin: We'll have to go on foot. Carpet can't
fight this wind.
Genie: Good call. (Carpet is plastered to
Genie's face by the wind)
Aladdin: Jasmine! Jasmine!
(Jasmine has climbed to the top of the rock and is waving to get
Aladdin: She's over there! (they run over
to the base of the rock) Jasmine, I'm sorry. I wasn't thinking!
Jasmine: Not now, Aladdin, just get up here!
Aladdin: I have to say this: you're my treas—
Genie: Al, listen to the little lady.
(Genie turns Aladdin's head; he sees the shark swimming toward
them. Genie pulls the others out of the way just before it gets
to them, and it crashes into the rock. He places them at the top
of the rock with Jasmine. Aladdin and Jasmine hug.)
Aladdin: I don't know how long we'll be safe here.
(There's a crashing sound and the rock starts to shake.)
Iago: Not long enough!
(The shark is beating the rock with its tail to try to knock
them down. Suddenly, a harpoon strikes the Beast in its tail, and
it sinks down into the sand. Murk's boat pulls up to the rock and
Murk: No crew abandons Murk.
Jasmine: Who abandoned who, Captain?
Aladdin: Now is not the time, Princess.
(They all climb back onto the ship. We can see the Beast swimming
away; it's still alive.)
Aladdin: Thank you, Captain.
Murk: Deserters. If I did not need you I would
let the Beast have his meal.
(Something hits the boat, knocking Aladdin and Jasmine off
Aladdin: Everyone stay calm!
Iago: Ever notice how that suggestion
(Some time passes and they don't hear anything else.)
Jasmine: Is it gone?
Murk: Doubtful. It has not yet
(The shark suddenly jumps up halfway onto the boat, snapping
its jaws at the crew. Aladdin and Jasmine fall off the opposite
side of the boat. Abu starts sliding towards the Beast's jaws, but
Iago swoops down and saves him.)
Genie: (as a football player)
Time to book, rug-man! (jumps over the side of the boat, holding
Carpet like a football)
Aladdin: We have to make it to the cliffs!
Genie: Good call, Coach!
(The shark slips back down under the sand. Aladdin and his
friends start to climb to the top of some nearby cliffs.)
Aladdin: Wait! Where's Murk?
(Murk is standing on the sand below the cliffs. He picks up
a broken harpoon off the ground as the Beast swims toward him. Aladdin
sees Murk, who is grinning like a madman, preparing to stab the
approaching shark. Aladdin jumps back down to the ground.)
Iago: Are you dinghy?
Aladdin: We have to draw it away from Murk! (starts
jumping around, trying to get the shark's attention)
Iago: Case closed.
(The others come down off the cliff and start jumping, too.)
Aladdin: Hey! Hey, over here! Come on! Over here!
Genie: Here beastie beastie beastie! Here beastie!
(The Beast passes by Murk and swims toward the others. Everyone
stops jumping except for Aladdin.)
Genie: This would really be a good time for a
Aladdin: Keep stomping!
Jasmine: Beast! Over here!
(The shark leaps out of the sand towards them.)
Aladdin: Okay… jump!
(They jump to either side and the shark hits the side of the
cliff. It lies on the sand, unmoving.)
Jasmine: Do you think it's dead?
Genie: (turns into a doctor and examines it
with a stethoscope) Nah. Give him two Asprin and call Jacques
Cousteau in the morning.
(Setting: Agrabah, at night. The Beast is tied up in front
of the palace, and a crowd has gathered to come see it.)
Iago: Look at that gold! Time to call my broker!
(Abu chatters excitedly and claps his hands.)
Iago: Hey, what are you drooling about? You were
Iago: No way does bait get a part of the treasure.
(Abu tackles Iago and they start fighting.)
Sultan: Well, Captain, you must be pleased that
your long hunt is finally over.
Murk: Yes. Chasing the Beast was my life.
Sultan: Sounds like it was quite exciting.
(Murk nods, smiling.)
Sultan: But, what are you going to do with your
Murk: I… I don't know.
Jasmine: I hope you're happy. It's a wonder no
one was killed! But the treasure is yours, you got what you wanted.
Murk: (sigh) Did I?
(Setting: the palace, the next morning. Rasoul is walking along
the palace wall when he sees the Beast is gone.)
Rasoul: The Beast has escaped! The Beast has escaped!
(Setting: later that day. Murk is preparing to leave.)
Jasmine: But do you think Agrabah is in any danger?
Murk: The Beast had no taste for
being captured. He'll head home. I can head him off if I go north.
Are you with me, boy?
Aladdin: Not this time, Captain.
Murk: Thinking with your heart.
(Murk's ship flies away.)
Genie: I think he forgot this. (holds up the
Aladdin: He cut the ropes himself!
Iago: It's a double cross! He wants all the gold!
Aladdin: Nah, I think Murk just realized some
things are worth more than treasure.
