Disney's Aladdin - Diamond Edition Poster


 PEDDLER: Oh I come from a land
   From a faraway place
   Where the caravan camels roam
   Where they cut off your ear /Where it's flat and immense
   If they don't like your face /And the heat is intense
   It's barbaric, but hey--it's home!
   When the wind's at your back
   And the sun's from the west
   And the sand in the glass is right
   Come on down,
   Stop on by
   Hop a carpet and fly
   To another Arabian night!
   Arabian nights
   Like Arabian days
   More often than not
   Are hotter than hot
   In a lot of good ways
   Arabian nights
   'Neath Arabian moons
   A fool off his guard
   Could fall and fall hard
   Out there on the dunes.
   Ah, salaam, and good evening to you, worthy friend.
   Please, please, come closer. (Camera zooms in hitting
   peddler in face) Too close. A little too close.  (Camera
   zooms back out to CU) There. Welcome to Agrabah, city of
   mystery, of enchantment, and the finest merchandise this
   side of the river Jordan, on sale today. Come on down.
   Heh, heh. Look at this. Yes. Combination hookah and
   coffeemaker. Also makes julienne fries. Will not break.
   (taps it on table) will not... (it falls apart) It broke.
   Ohh!  Look at this. (Pulls out Tupperware) I
   have never seen one of these intact before. This is the
   famous Dead Sea Tupperware. Listen. (Pries it open,
   makes raspberry sound.) Ah, still good. (Camera begins
   to pan to right.  PEDDLER hurries to catch it.)  Wait.
   Don't go.  (Stop pan.) I can see that you're only
   interested in the exceptionally rare.  I think, then, you
   would be most rewarded to consider this.  (PEDDLER
   pulls the MAGIC LAMP out from his sleeve.) Do not be
   fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many
   things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside
   that counts. (Another pan, this one slower to left.
   Again, PEDDLER rushes to catch up.) This is no ordinary
   lamp. It once changed the course of a young man's life.
   A young man who, liked this lamp, was more than what he
   seemed. The diamond in the rough. Perhaps you would like
   to hear the tale?  (PEDDLER pours shiny sand from the
   lamp into his hand.) It begins on a dark night... (PEDDLER
   throws sand into the sky, where it forms a starry
   nightscape.), where a dark man waits with a dark

(Camera tilts down to find JAFAR sitting on his horse and IAGO on his shoulder. GAZEEM comes riding up to the pair.)

[horse nickers]

JAFAR: You are late. GAZEEM: A thousand apologies, O patient one. JAFAR: You have it then? GAZEEM: I had to slit a few throats, but I got it. (Pulls out

       half of the medallion.  JAFAR reaches out for it,
       but GAZEEM yanks it back.)  Ah-ah-ahhh. The treasure.
       (IAGO squawks as he flies by and grabs the medallion.) Ow!

JAFAR: Trust me, my pungent friend. You'll get what's

       coming to you.

IAGO: What's coming to you. Awk!

(JAFAR pulls out the second half of the medallion. He connects

   them, and the insect medallion begins to glow.  Finally, it
   flies out of JAFAR's hand, scaring the horses, and is off
   towards the dunes.)

JAFAR: Quickly! Follow the trail! Faster.

(All ride off, following the glowing speck of light, until

   it reaches a large dune.  It separates into two and the
   halves plunge into the dune.  All that remains are two glowing
   points of light on the dune.  But then the dune begins to rise
    up, transforming into a giant lion's head, with the glowing
   points serving as the eyes.)

[horse neighs]

JAFAR: At last, after all my years of searching... the Cave

       of Wonders.

IAGO: Awk. Cave of wonders. GAZEEM: By Allah. JAFAR: Now, remember. Bring me the lamp. The rest of the

       treasure is yours, but the lamp is mine. [chuckles]

(GAZEEM starts to approach the lion's mouth, which forms the

   entrance to the cave.  He chuckles as he goes.)

IAGO: Awk, the lamp. Awk, the lamp. (Now that IAGO and

   JAFAR are alone, IAGO opens up in normal English.)
   Jeez, where'd ya dig this bozo up?


[echoing rumble] (JAFAR puts his finger to his lips and shushes him. GAZEEM reaches

   the cave, but is blown away by the roar of the cave's speaking.)

CAVE: Who disturbs my slumber? GAZEEM: [thief gasps] It is I, Gazeem, a humble thief. CAVE: Know this. Only one may enter here, one whose

       worth lies far within. A diamond in the rough.

(GAZEEM turns to JAFAR with a questioning look.)

JAFAR: What are you waiting for? Go on.

[beast sighing] [roaring] [screaming] (GAZEEM hesitates, then moves one foot inside the cave. With

   great apprehension, he plants his foot down.  Nothing happens.
     Relieved, he begins his trek again.  Then another roar comes.
    He turns back, but the lion's mouth slams shut and the dune
   collapses back to normal.  All that are left are JAFAR, IAGO,
    and the two separated halves of the medallion.)

JAFAR: No! CAVE: Seek thee out, the diamond in the rough.

(IAGO unburied himself from the sand, coughing as he does so.)

IAGO: [coughing] I can't believe it. I just don't believe it. We're

       never gonna get a hold of that stupid lamp. Just
       forget it. Look at this. Look at this. I'm so
       ticked off that I'm molting. (He flies up to
       JAFAR's shoulder.)

JAFAR: Patience, Iago. Patience. Gazeem was obviously

       less than worthy.

IAGO: (Extremely sarcastically) Oh, there's a big

       surprise. That's an incred... I think I'm gonna have
       a heart attack and die from not surprise. What are
       we gonna do?  We got a big problem here, a big...
       (JAFAR pinches his beak shut.)

JAFAR: Yes. Only one may enter. I must find this

       one, this... diamond in the rough.

(Cut to a rooftop, where ALADDIN rushes up to the edge, carrying

   a loaf of bread.  He almost drops it over the edge.)

GUARD: Stop! Thief! I'll have your hands for a trophy,

       street rat.

ALADDIN: (Looks back, then down, then at the bread.) All

       this for a loaf of bread? Whoa!

(He jumps off, landing on two ropes strung between buildings, with

   drying clothes on them.  He skies down them, collecting bits
   and pieces of clothing on him as he goes.  Finally, he's
   nearing the end of the rope, at a window, when a woman reaches
    out and slams the shutters closed.  ALADDIN slams into the
   shutters and falls to the street, his fall being broken by
   numerous awnings and the pile of clothes around him.  He pulls
    off the top layer of clothes and is about to enjoy his bread


GUARD 1: There he is! GUARD 2: You won't get away so easy! ALADDIN: You think that was easy?

(He looks at three women, laughing at him.)

GUARD 1: You two, over that way, and you, with me. We'll

       find him.

(ALADDIN pulls a sheet over him and wraps himself as a disguise.

   He rushes over to the women.)

ALADDIN: Morning, ladies. WOMAN 1: Getting into trouble a little early today, aren't

       we Aladdin?

ALADDIN: Trouble? No way. You're only in trouble if you

       get caught--

(A hand grabs ALADDIN's shoulder and yanks him back. It's the

   first GUARD.  ALADDIN's disguise falls off.)

ALADDIN: I'm in trouble! GUARD: ...and this time--(A screeching sound from ABU,

       then the guard's turban is pulled down over his
       eyes.  ABU dances on the GUARD's head, laughing.)

ALADDIN: Perfect timing, Abu! ABU: Hello! ALADDIN: Come on, let's get outta here!

       Gotta jump ahead of the breadline
       One swing ahead of the sword
       I steal only what I can't afford
       That's everything!

(ALADDIN battles a GUARD wielding a sword. He dodges a couple of

   swings, then pulls down the GUARD's pants.  ABU raspberries the
   GUARD, then dodges an attack.  The GUARD swings at ALADDIN,
   but destroys a barrel of fish.  As ALADDIN runs off, the GUARD
    pulls a fish over his lower body as a pair of pants.)
       One jump ahead of the lawmen
       That's all, and that's no joke
       These guys don't appreciate I'm broke!

(ALADDIN and ABU scamper up a pile of barrels, then kick one down

   on top of another GUARD.)

GUARDS: (one at a time) Riffraff! Street rat!

       Scoundrel! Take that!

ALADDIN: Just a little snack, guys!

(ALADDIN scampers to the top of a platform. The GUARDS shake the

   platform back and fro trying to knock him off.)

GUARDS: Rip him open, take it back guys! ALADDIN: I can take a hint, gotta face the facts

       You're my only friend, Abu!

WOMEN: Who?!?

(ALADDIN jumps off the platform to certain death, only to grab ABU's

   hands like an acrobat.  The pair swing into a harem.)
       Oh, it's sad Aladdin's hit the bottom
       He's become a one-man rise in crime

(ABU finds a plate full of fruit and stuffs his mouth full like a chipmunk.)

WOMAN: I'd blame parents, except he hasn't got 'em!

ALADDIN: Gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat Tell you all about it when I got the time!

(ALADDIN and ABU exit. Cut to MUSCLEMAN flexing to a crowd. The

   GUARDS rush past.  Cut to ALADDIN and ABU behind the MUSCLEMAN,
    matching his moves, until they make a mistake and are discovered.)
       One jump ahead of the slowpokes
       One skip ahead of my doom
       Next time gonna use a nom de plume.
       One jump ahead of the hitmen
       One hit ahead of the flock
       I think I'll take a stroll around the block.

(A chase sequence, in which ALADDIN and ABU, pursued by the GUARDS,

   race through a flock of sheep, hurdle a MAN sleeping on a bed of
   nails {of course one extremely large GUARD lands on him}.  ABU
    disguises himself with jewels until a SHOPKEEPER discovers him.

CROWD: Stop, thief! Vandal!

       Outrage! Scandal!

ALADDIN: Let's not be too hasty

(ALADDIN is surrounded by GUARDS in front of a door. The door opens

   and a large, ugly LADY comes out.)

LADY: Still I think he's rather tasty

(ALADDIN tumbles away, then puts his arm around a GUARD, acting

   like they're all chums.)

ALADDIN: Gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat

       Otherwise we'd get along!


(They all jump into a pile and fight. When they stop, ALADDIN and

   ABU are gone.  They are sneaking away in barrels.  They run
   across a flaming pit, followed by GUARDS who hop up and down,
   screaming in pain as they cross the rocks.  ALADDIN and ABU
   pass a SWORD SWALLOWER, then ABU goes back, pulls the sword
   out of the SWALLOWER's mouth.  ABU advances on the guards,
   who retreat in fear.)

GUARD 1: He's got a sword! GUARD 2: You idiot--we've ALL got swords!!

(ABU sets the sword down gently, then runs. ALADDIN and ABU are

   once again surrounded, with GUARDS coming from left and right.
     He jumps up and climbs a robe trick being done on the street,
    as the GUARDS all crash into each other.)

ALADDIN: One jump ahead of the hoofbeats! CROWD: Vandal! ALADDIN: One hop ahead of the hump! CROWD: Street rat! ALADDIN: One trick ahead of disaster CROWD: Scoundrel! ALADDIN: They're quick--but I'm much faster CROWD: Take that!

(The GUARDS chase ALADDIN up a staircase into a room. He grabs a

    carpet and jumps out the window)

ALADDIN: Here goes, better throw my hand in

       Wish me happy landin'
       All I gotta do is jump!

(The GUARDS follow him out the window, but they go straight down to

    the street, and land in a pile with the sign "Crazy Hakim's
   Discount Fertilizer."  ALADDIN uses the carpet as a parachute
   to land safely and out of danger. ALADDIN and ABU high-five each

ALADDIN: And now, esteemed effendi, we feast! All right!

(ALADDIN breaks the bread in two and gives half to ABU, who begins

   to eat.  But ALADDIN looks over and sees two young children
   rummaging through the garbage for food.  The GIRL sees him, then
   drops her find and tries to hide.  ALADDIN looks at them, then
   the bread, then at ABU.)

ABU: Uh-oh!

(ABU takes a big bite of his food, but ALADDIN gets up and walks

   over to the children.  The GIRL pulls her brother back.)

ALADDIN: Here, go on--take it.

(The children giggle with delight. ABU tries to swallow his bite,

   then looks guilty. He walks over to the children and offers his
    bread to them.  In delight, they pet him on the head.)

ABU: Ah, don't. Huh?

(ABU sees ALADDIN walking into the daylight, where there is a parade

   going on.ALADDIN peers over the shoulders of people.  He sees
   PRINCE ACHMED riding on a horse.)

BYSTANDER 1: On his way to the palace, I suppose. BYSTANDER 2: Another suitor for the princess.

(ALADDIN is startled as the two children come running out from the

   alley. The BOY runs out in front of the PRINCE's horse,
   startling it.)

PRINCE: Out of my way, you filthy brat!

(The PRINCE brings up his whip to attack the children, but ALADDIN

   jumps in front of them and catches the whip.)

ALADDIN: Hey, if I were as rich as you, I could afford some manners PRINCE: Oh--I teach you some manners!

(The PRINCE kicks ALADDIN into a mud puddle. The crowd laugh at him.)

ALADDIN: Look at that, Abu. It's not every day you see a

       horse with two rear ends!

(The PRINCE stops and turns back to ALADDIN.)

PRINCE: You are a worthless street rat. You were born a

       street rat, you'll die a street rat, and only
       your fleas will mourn you.

(ALADDIN rushes the PRINCE, but the doors to the castle slam shut

   in his face.)

ALADDIN: I'm not worthless. And I don't have fleas. Come

       on, Abu.  Let's go home.

(ALADDIN makes the climb to his home with the view, then tucks in

   ABU for the night.)

ALADDIN: Riffraff, street rat.

       I don't buy that.
       If only they'd look closer
       Would they see a poor boy?  No siree.
       They'd find out, there's so much more to me.

(He pulls back a curtain to reveal the beautiful palace.)

       Someday, Abu, things are gonna change.  We'll be
       rich, live in a palace, and never have any problems
       at all.

(Dissolve to same shot during day. Cut to int. of SULTAN's chamber.

    The door bursts open, and PRINCE ACHMED storms in, missing the
   rear end of his pants.)

PRINCE: I've never been so insulted.

SULTAN: Oh, Prince Achmed. You're not leaving so soon, are


PRINCE: Good luck marrying her off.

SULTAN: Oh, Jasmine. Jasmine! Jasmine! (The SULTAN goes

       off into the garden looking for his daughter.  He
       finds her, but is interrupted by RAJAH, JASMINE's
       pet tiger, who blocks him off.  RAJAH has a piece
       of the PRINCE's undershorts in his mouth.The SULTAN
       grabs the cloth and yanks it out of RAJAH's mouth.)
       Confound it, Rajah!  So, this is why Prince Achmed
       stormed out!

JASMINE: Oh, father. Rajah was just playing with him,

       weren't you Rajah.  (RAJAH comes over and allows
       JASMINE to pet and hug him.)  You were just playing
       with that overdressed, self-absorbed Prince Achmed,
       weren't you?  (She cuddles with RAJAH, enjoying the
       moment, until she looks up at her angry father. )

SULTAN: Dearest, you've got to stop rejecting every suitor

       that comes to call.  The law says you...

BOTH: ...must be married to a prince.

(They walk over to a dove cage.)

SULTAN: By your next birthday. JASMINE: The law is wrong. SULTAN: You've only got three more days! JASMINE: Father, I hate being forced into this. (She takes

       a dove out of the cage and pets it.) If I do marry,
       I want it to be for love.

SULTAN: Jasmine, it's not only this law. (She hands him

       the dove, and he puts it back in the cage.) I'm not
       going to be around forever, and I just want to make
       sure you're taken care of, provided for.

JASMINE: Try to understand. I've never done a thing on my

       own. (She swirls her finger in the water of the
       pond, petting the fish.)I've never had any real
       friends. (RAJAH looks up at her and growls.)
       Except you, Rajah.  (Satisfied, he goes back to
       sleep.)  I've never even been outside the palace

SULTAN: But Jasmine, you're a princess. JASMINE: Then maybe I don't want to be a princess. (She

       splashes the water.)

SULTAN: Oooohhh! Allah forbid you should have any


(RAJAH looks up and thinks for a second. JASMINE goes to the dove

   cage and yanks open the door.  The birds fly off into freedom.
     She watches them go.  Cut to int. of SULTAN's chambers.)

SULTAN: I don't know where she gets it from. Her mother

       wasn't nearly so picky.  (A shadow falls over him.
       He looks up startled and sees JAFAR.)  Ooh, oh.
       Ah, Jafar--my most trusted advisor.  I am in
       desperate need of your wisdom.

JAFAR: My life is but to serve you, my lord. (He bows.) SULTAN: It's this suitor business. Jasmine refuses to

       choose a husband.  I'm at my wit's-end.

IAGO: (In the parrot voice) Awk! Wit's-end. SULTAN: Oh, ha ha. Have a cracker, pretty polly! (He

       pulls a cracker out from his pocket.  IAGO looks
       terrified.  Then the SULTAN stuffs it in IAGO's
       mouth.  IAGO grimaces as he tries to eat it.  JAFAR
       and the SULTAN both laugh.)

JAFAR: Your majesty certainly has a way with dumb animals.

       (IAGO glares at him.)  Now then, perhaps I can
       divine a solution to this thorny problem.

SULTAN: If anyone can help, it's you. JAFAR: Ah, but it would require the use of the mystic blue


SULTAN: Uh, my ring? But it's been in the family for


JAFAR: It is necessary to find the princess a suitor.

       (JAFAR says the word 'princess' with the accent on
       the second syllable, "cess."  He turns his staff
       with a cobra head towards the SULTAN.  The eyes of
       the staff begin to glow. The room darkens, JAFAR's
       voice slows down and deepens.  The SULTAN's eyes
       get a hypnotized look.)  Don't worry.  Everything
       will be fine.

SULTAN: Everything...will be...fine. JAFAR: The diamond. SULTAN: Here, Jafar. Whatever you need will be fine.

(The SULTAN removes his ring and hands it to JAFAR. The room returns

   to normal as JAFAR pulls back the staff.)

JAFAR: You are most gracious, my liege. Now run along and

       play with your little toys.

SULTAN: (Still hypnotized) Yes...that'll be...pretty good.

(JAFAR and IAGO exit. We follow them. When they're out of the room,

   the parrot spits out the cracker.)

IAGO: I can't take it anymore! If I gotta choke down on

       one more of those moldy, disgusting crackers...bam!

(JAFAR pulls a rope, which reveals a hidden entrance to his chambers.)

JAFAR: Calm yourself, Iago. IAGO: Then I'd grab him around the head. Whack! Whack! JAFAR: (Speaking over IAGO.) Soon, I will be sultan, not

       that addlepated twit.

IAGO: And then I stuff the crackers down his throat! Ha


(The pair pass through a door and slam it shut. Diss. to ext. gardens

   at night.  A shadowy figure walks through.  We see it is JASMINE
   in disguise.  She reaches the palace wall, then begins to climb it.
     She is tugged from behind by RAJAH.)

JASMINE: Oh, I'm sorry, Rajah. But I can't stay here and

       have my life lived for me.  I'll miss you.(She
       begins to climb again, and is helped up by RAJAH,
       who begins to whine and whimper.)  Good bye!

(She disappears over the wall. Cut to daytime on the street ALADDIN

   and ABU are up to their capers again.  They are on top of the
   awning of a fruit stand.)

ALADDIN: Okay, Abu. Go!

(ABU dips over the edge and looks at the PROPRIETOR.)

PROPRIETOR: (To passing crowd) Try this, your taste buds

           will dance and sing. (ABU grabs a melon and
           hangs there, distracting his attention.)  Hey,
           get your paws off that.

ABU: Blah blah blah! PROPRIETOR: Why, you! Get away from here, you filthy ape!

(He grabs the melon away from ABU. But in the foreground, ALADDIN

   dips down and snatches another melon from the stand.)

ABU: Bye bye!

(He zings back up. The PROPRIETOR takes the melon to the front,

   where he places it on top of a stack.  He looks confused, like
   he has just done this.)

ALADDIN: Nice goin' Abu. Breakfast is served.

(ALADDIN and ABU on the roof break open the melon and eat. We see J

   ASMINE walking through the street.)

SHOPKEEPER 1: Pretty lady, buy a pot. No finer pot in brass

           or silver.

SHOPKEEPER 2: Sugar dates, sugar dates and figs! Sugar

           dates and pistachios!

SHOPKEEPER 3: Would the lady like a necklace. A pretty

           necklace for a pretty lady.

(She is charmed by the action, but is startled by a fish thrust

   into her face.)

SHOPKEEPER 4: Fresh fish! We catch 'em, you buy 'em! JASMINE: I don't think so. (She backs away, but bumps into

       a fire eater, who is startled into swallowing his
       fire.)  Oh, excuse me.  (He gulps, then belches
       fire from his mouth.  JASMINE is disgusted.  He is
       pleased and taps his stomach.  ALADDIN sees her,
       and a strange look comes over his face.)  I'm
       really very sorry.

ALADDIN: (He's obviously deeply in love with her.) Wow!

(She pulls the hood of her cloak over her head. ABU sees him and

   jumps up on his shoulder, waving his hand in front of ALADDIN's

ABU: Uh oh. Hello? Hello?

(JASMINE stops at the fruit stand and sees a young homeless child

   reaching for a piece of fruit.  She picks one up and gives it to

JASMINE: Oh, you must be hungry. Here you go. (The

           boy runs off.)

PROPRIETOR: You'd better be able to pay for that. JASMINE: (Mystified) Pay? PROPRIETOR: No one steals from my cart! JASMINE: Oh, I'm sorry sir. I don't have any money. PROPRIETOR: Thief! JASMINE: Please, if you let me go to the palace, I can

           get some from the Sultan.

PROPRIETOR: Do you know what the penalty is for stealing?

(He takes her hand and pins it down on the table, intending to

   chop it off.)

JASMINE: No, no please!

(The sword drops, but his hand is stopped by ALADDIN's.)

ALADDIN: Thank you kind sir. I'm so glad you've found

           her. I've been looking all over for you.

JASMINE: (whispering) What are you doing? ALADDIN: (whispering back) Just play along. PROPRIETOR: You know this girl? JASMINE: Sadly, yes. She is my sister. She's a little

           crazy.  (He circles his finger around his ear.
           She is shocked.  The PROPRIETOR grabs him by
           the vest.)

PROPRIETOR: She said she knows the Sultan! ALADDIN: She thinks the monkey is the Sultan.

(ABU is picking a pocket. He hears this, then straightens up.

   JASMINE, playing along, kneels and bows to ABU.)

JASMINE: Oh, wise Sultan. How may I serve you? ABU: Well, blah blah blah blah. ALADDIN: Tragic, isn't it? (He leans forward, picking

           up another apple from the cart with his
           foot.) But, no harm done.  (Walks over to
           Jasmine.)  Now come along sis. Time to see the

JASMINE: (To a camel standing nearby) Oh, hello doctor.

           How are you?

ALADDIN: No, no, no. Not that one. (To ABU, whose

           pockets are bulging.) Come on, Sultan.

(ABU bows to the crowd and everything he's stolen from the cart falls


PROPRIETOR: Huh? What is it? (ABU picks up what he can

           carry, and the trio run off.) Come back here,
           you little thieves!

(Cut to int. of JAFAR's lab. IAGO is running on a gear in a bizarre

   contraption.  At the top of the contraption is a storm brewing.)


IAGO: (huffing and puffing) With all due respect, Your

       Rottenness, couldn't we just wait for a real storm?

JAFAR: Save your breath, Iago. Faster. (He places the

       SULTAN's ring in the contraption.)

IAGO: Yes, O mighty Evil One. [panting]

(IAGO runs faster. A lightning bolt streaks through the ring, passing

   into an hourglass below.  The sands begin to swirl.)

JAFAR: Part, sands of time. Reveal to me the one who can

       enter the cave.  (The sand in top forms the Cave of
       Wonders.  It falls through into a storm, but it
       shows ALADDIN climbing up a ladder, followed by
       JASMINE who is covered in her cloak.) Yes! Yes!
       There he is.  My diamond in the rough.

IAGO: That's him? That's the clown we've been

       waitin' for? (IAGO loses his footing and is sucked
       into the gears.)

JAFAR: Let's have the guards extend him an invitation to

       the palace, shall we?

(IAGO goes flying past and slams into the wall upside down.)

IAGO: Swell. [coughs]

(JAFAR laughs hideously, and the camera zooms in on the sandstorm with

   ALADDIN in it.  Finally, we dissolve into the real ALADDIN climbing
   to the top of the ladder, followed by JASMINE.)

[sinister laughter]

ALADDIN: Almost there.

(JASMINE climbs over the top, but trips and falls into ALADDIN's arms.

   She stands up.)

JASMINE: I want to thank you for stopping that man. ALADDIN: Uh, forget it. (He grabs a pole.) So, uh, this is

       your first time in the marketplace, huh?

(ALADDIN pole vaults to the next building, leaving JASMINE behind.)

JASMINE: Is it that obvious? ALADDIN: Well, you do kinda stand out. (He stares at her,

       still in love.  She returns the look.  But he
       realizes what he is doing, and returns to normal.)
       I mean, uh, you don't seem to know how dangerous
       Agrabah can be. (He lays a plank between the
       buildings for her to walk over, but as he is leaned
       down, she vaults over his head.  He looks back in
       surprise.  She tosses the pole to him.  Both
       ALADDIN's and ABU's eyes bulge.)

JASMINE: I'm a fast learner. ALADDIN: Right. C'mon, this way. (They go inside the roof

       of a building, dodging planks and beams as they
       go.)  Whoa.  Watch your head there.  Be careful.

JASMINE: Is this where you live? ALADDIN: Yep. Just me and Abu. Come and go as we please. JASMINE: Fabulous. ALADDIN: Well, it's not much, (he pulls back the curtain and

       exposes the palace) but it's got a great view.
       Palace looks pretty amazing, huh?

JASMINE: Oh, it's wonderful. ALADDIN: I wonder what it would be like to live there, to have servants and valets...

JASMINE: Oh, sure. People who tell you where to go and how to dress.

ALADDIN: It's better than here. Always scraping for food and ducking the guards.

JASMINE: You're not free to make your own choices. ALADDIN: Sometimes you feel so-- JASMINE: You're just-- BOTH: (in unison) --trapped.

(They look at each other, realizing that they're perfect for one

   another.  But ALADDIN then realizes where he is, and breaks the
   look.  He takesthe apple out of ABU's hand and rolls it down his
   arm into the hand of JASMINE.)

ALADDIN: So, where're you from? JASMINE: What does it matter? I ran away, and I am not going back.

ALADDIN: Really? (He takes a bite from the apple in his

       hand, then hands it to ABU, who has a disgusted
       look on his face.)

ABU: Why you!

(ALADDIN walks over and sits next to JASMINE.)

JASMINE: My father's forcing me to get married. ALADDIN: That's--that's awful. (ABU appears from behind the

       princess and tries to steal the apple.) Abu!

(ABU races up to a higher point, chattering and cursing as he goes.)

JASMINE: What? ALADDIN: Abu says that--uh--that's not fair. ABU: What? JASMINE: Oh did he? ALADDIN: Yeah, of course. JASMINE: And does Abu have anything else to say? ALADDIN: Well, uh, he wishes there was something he could do

       to help.

ABU: Oh, boy! JASMINE: Hmm, tell him that's very sweet.

(ALADDIN and JASMINE have been getting closer and closer, until

   ALADDIN leans in to kiss her.  He is interrupted, however,
   by the GUARDS, who have found them.)

GUARD: Here you are! ALADDIN and JASMINE: They've found me! (To each other) They're

               after you?

JASMINE: My father must have sent them-- ALADDIN: Do you trust me? JASMINE: What? ALADDIN: Do you trust me? (He extends his hand) JASMINE: Yes. (She takes it.) ALADDIN: Then jump!

(They both jump off the roof, fall and land in a pile of salt. They

   try to get away, but the exit is blocked by a GUARD.)

GUARD: We just keep running into each other, don't we,

       street rat?

(Again, the GUARD's turban is pulled down by ABU, but more guards are

   here and block the exit.  The first GUARD pulls ABU off his head and
    throws him in a vase.  Three other GUARDS grab ALADDIN.)

GUARD: It's the dungeon for you, boy. ALADDIN: Hey, get off of me! JASMINE: Let go of him. GUARD: (Not realizing she is the princess) Look what we

       have here, men--a street mouse.  (He throws her

JASMINE: (standing up and pulling off the hood of her cloak)

       Unhand him, by order of the princess.

(The GUARDS suddenly stop and bow, forcing ALADDIN to bow as well.)

GUARD: Princess Jasmine. ALADDIN: The princess? ABU: (peeking out from the vase) The princess? GUARD: What are you doing outside the palace? And with

       this street rat?

JASMINE: That's not your concern. Do as I command. Release


GUARD: Well, I would, princess, but my orders come from

       Jafar.  You'll have to take it up with him.

(The GUARDS drag ALADDIN out, bowing as they go.)

JASMINE: (getting a very pissed-off look) Believe me, I will.

(Cut to int. of palace, JAFAR emerging from his secret chambers. He

   slides the door shut carefully, but the princess comes storming
   in before he is finished.  He slams it shut, pinning IAGO inside
   the door frame.)


JAFAR: Oh, uh, princess. IAGO: Awk! Jafar, I'm stuck! JAFAR: How may I be of service to you? (He spreads out his cape, hiding the door.)

JASMINE: The guards just took a boy from the market, on your orders.

JAFAR: Your father's charged me with keeping peace in Agrabah. The boy was a criminal.

JASMINE: What was the crime?

IAGO: I can't breathe, Jafar!

JAFAR: Why, kidnapping the princess, of course.

IAGO: If you could just--(JAFAR kicks him back inside the door and it slams shut)--wow, that hurt!

JASMINE: He didn't kidnap me! I ran away! JAFAR: (Walking away as if shocked) Oh, dear! Oh, how frightfully upsetting. Had I but known.

JASMINE: What do you mean?

JAFAR: Sadly, the boy's sentence has already been carried out.

JASMINE: What sentence? JAFAR: (with a sinister tone) Death. (JASMINE gasps.) By beheading.

JASMINE: No! (She collapses to the floor.)

JAFAR: I am exceedingly sorry, princess.

JASMINE: How could you? (She runs from the room crying.)

(IAGO finally makes it out through the door. He flies up and lands on JAFAR's shoulder, coughing.)

IAGO: So, how did it go? JAFAR: I think she took it rather well. (They both get a sinister smile on their faces.)

(Diss. to JASMINE at night, crying at the edge of the fountain. RAJAH comes over to comfort her. She pets him.)

JASMINE: It's all my fault, Rajah. I didn't even know his name.

(Cut to int. of dungeon. Rats scurry by, and we descend until we see ALADDIN chained to the wall.)

ALADDIN: (to himself) She was the princess. I don't believe it. I must have sounded so stupid to her.

ABU: (from a distance) Yoo-hoo! Aladdin? Hello!

(ABU appears at the window at the top of the dungeon.)

ALADDIN: Abu! Down here! Hey, c'mon--help me outta these.

(ABU stops, then begins chattering wildly, dropping to the ground. He

    wraps a cloth around his head and makes his eyes big in an
    imitation of the princess.)

ALADDIN: Hey, she was in trouble. Ah, she was worth it.

(ABU jumps up on ALADDIN's shoulders and pulls a small set of tools

   out of his pocket, then frees ALADDIN.)

ABU: Yeah, yeah, yeah. ALADDIN: Don't worry, Abu. I'll never see her again. I'm a

       street rat, remember, and there's a law. She's
       gotta marry a prince. She deserves a prince.

(ABU finally frees ALADDIN's hands.)

ABU: Ta da! ALADDIN: (Rubbing his wrists) I'm a... I'm a fool. OLD MAN: You're only a fool if you give up, boy.

(We see an OLD MAN sitting in the corner that neither ALADDIN nor ABU

   have seen before.)

ALADDIN: Who are you? OLD MAN: A lowly prisoner, like yourself. But together,

       perhaps we can be more.

ALADDIN: I'm listening. OLD MAN: There is a cave, boy, a Cave of Wonders, filled

       with treasures beyond your wildest dreams.
       Treasure enough to impress even your princess, I'd

(Listeners will note that the OLD MAN pronounced the word

   'princess' as "prin-CESS" rather than the standard pronunciation
    of "PRIN-cess."   The OLD MAN turns his back, and IAGO sticks
   his head out of JAFAR's "old man" disguise.)

IAGO: Jafar, can you hurry it up? I'm dyin' in here. [squawking] ALADDIN: But the law says that only a prince can... OLD MAN: You've heard of the golden rule, haven't you?

       Whoever has the gold makes the rules. (He grins,
       showing a hideously bad mouth.) [wheezing laugh]

ALADDIN: So. Why would you share all of this wonderful

       treasure with me?

OLD MAN: I need a young man with strong legs and a strong

       back to go in after it.

ALADDIN: Uh, one problem. It's out there. We're in here.

(The OLD MAN walks to a wall and pushes open a hidden exit.)

OLD MAN: Uh-uh. Things aren't always what they

       seem. So... do we have a deal?

(ALADDIN looks at ABU, who shrugs his shoulders.)

ABU: Oh, I don't know.

(Cut to desert scene. We see ALADDIN leading a horse with the

   OLD MAN and ABU on it.  Diss. to cave of wonders.)

[thunder crashing]

CAVE: Who disturbs my slumber? ALADDIN: Uh, it is I, Aladdin. CAVE: Proceed. Touch nothing but the lamp.

(The cave opens up with a roar, and a staircase appears in front of


OLD MAN: Remember, boy, first fetch me the lamp, and then

       you shall have your reward.

ALADDIN: Come on, Abu. (to ABU hiding under the shoulder of

       his vest.)


(ALADDIN begins to descend the staircase. He reaches the bottom

   and enters a golden chamber filled with treasure.)

ALADDIN: Would you look at that! ABU: [whimpering] Uh oh! ALADDIN: Just a handful of this stuff would make me richer

       than the Sultan.

(ABU peeks out, sees the treasure, then bolts for it.)



(ABU stops in mid run, hovering over a rug on the floor.)

ALADDIN: Don't... touch... anything. We gotta find that lamp.

(They begin to make their way through the room when the CARPET rises

   off the floor and begins following them.  ABU gets the feeling
   they're being followed.)

ABU: Huh?

(He turns, and the CARPET lies flat on the floor. He continues, and

   the CARPET begins to follow again.  Again, ABU turns back, but the
    CARPET is rolled up and leaning against a pile of treasure. ABU
    runs to ALADDIN and tugs his pant leg.)

ABU: Aladdin! Aladdin! ALADDIN: Abu, will you knock it off?

(Again the CARPET follows, but this time, when ABU turns, the carpet

   jumps to the other side.  It reaches down with a tassel and pulls
   ABU's tail.  When ABU jumps around, CARPET again goes to the other
    side.  This time, ABU lands in a karate stance.  CARPET reaches
   down and plucks ABU's hat off, then puts it on himself.  ABU sits
   thinking for a second, until CARPET waves a tassel in front of his
    face.  ABU and CARPET both jump scared, and run away.  ABU tackles
    ALADDIN and turns his head to look at the CARPET.)


ALADDIN: Abu, what are you, crazy?

(The CARPET peeks out from behind a pile of treasure.)

ALADDIN: A magic carpet. Come on. Come on out. We're not gonna

       hurt you.

(The CARPET slowly comes out, shyly, then picks up ABU's hat and dusts

   it off.  It flies over to ALADDIN and hands the hat to ABU next to
    him.  ABU screeches, and jumps onto ALADDIN's shoulder.)


ALADDIN: Hey, take it easy, Abu. He's not gonna bite. Thanks.

(The CARPET again picks up ABU's hat and hands it to him. ABU shakes

   his fist and screeches at it.  CARPET begins to walk away, "sadly.")


ALADDIN: Hey. Wait a minute. Don't go. Maybe you can help

       us.  (CARPET looks back, excited. It then flies
       over and wraps around the pair.)  Hey! Whoa!  You
       see, we're trying to find this lamp.  (CARPET
       motions for them to follow it.)  I think he knows
       where it is.

[squeaks excitedly] [echoes]

(They pass through a long cave, until they emerge in a giant

   underground cavern.  In the centre of the room is a tall pillar,
    with a staircase going up to it.  It is surrounded by water
    with unevenly placed stones forming a bridge.  At the top of
   the pillar is a beam of light.  ALADDIN begins to cross the bridge.)

ALADDIN: [whispers] Wait here. ABU: [moaning] Oh. Huh? Oh!

(ABU sees a shrine with a golden monkey. The outstretched paws hold a

   giant ruby.  ABU is hypnotically drawn to it.   ALADDIN climbs the
    stairs quickly.  CARPET sees ABU and grabs his tail trying in vain
    to hold him back.  ALADDIN finally reaches the MAGIC LAMP.)

ALADDIN: This is it? This is what we came all the way down

       here to...  (He looks down and sees ABU break free
       of CARPET's hold and lunge toward the jewel.) Abu! No!

(ABU grabs the jewel. There is a rumbling and the room begins to


CAVE VOICE: Infidels! ABU: Uh oh! CAVE VOICE: You have touched the forbidden treasure! (ABU

              places the jewel back into the paw, but the jewel
               and the shrine melt into lava.) Now you
               will never again see the light of day!


(ALADDIN races down the steps, but they flatten into a ramp, and he

   skies down until he flies into the air.  The water has turned into
    lava.  He is falling toward it, when all of a sudden CARPET appears
   and catches him.   ABU is standing on one of the rocks of the
   bridge. He looks left and right and sees rocks exploding into lava.
   Then CARPET races over and ALADDIN grabs him, just as the last rock
    is exploding.)

ABU: Help! Help! Help! ALADDIN: Gotcha! Whoa. Carpet, let's move.

(Together, they race back through the caves dodging walls and falling

   debris.  ABU grabs ALADDIN's head and covers his eyes.)

ALADDIN: Abu! Abu, this is no time to panic. (He pulls ABU off

       his head and sees they are flying into a wall.)
       Start panicking.

[Abu panting] [thunder cracks] [roaring]

(CARPET goes into a dive, then through another cave. Finally, they

   emerge through the internal entrance.  Outside, the cave begins to
    growl and close.  CARPET and company are almost to the top when a
   boulder drops on carpet, sending it to the floor.  ALADDIN  grabs
   onto the rock wall and holds on.  He sees the OLD MAN at the top,
   within reach.)

ALADDIN: Help me out. OLD MAN: Throw me the lamp. ALADDIN: I can't hold on. Give me your hand. OLD MAN: First give me the lamp.

(ALADDIN reaches in and pulls out the MAGIC LAMP. He hands it up, a

   nd the OLD MAN raises it above his head.)

OLD MAN: [maniacal laughter] Yes! At last! [wicked laughter]

[Aladdin struggles]

(ALADDIN has climbed out with the assistance of ABU. But the OLD

    MAN kicks aside ABU and grabs ALADDIN's wrist.)

ALADDIN: What are you doing? OLD MAN: Giving you your reward. (JAFAR returns to his

       normal voice.) Your eternal reward. [screaming]

(He pulls out a crooked dagger and is about to stab ALADDIN, when

   ABU bites him on the wrist.  He screams, but lets go of ALADDIN,
    who falls into the cave.  OLD MAN throws ABU into the cave as
    well.  They fall.  CARPET sees this, but is pinned under a
    boulder.  It struggles to break free, then does.  It races
    up and catches ALADDIN, but he has already hit the wall several
   times, and is unconscious.  On the surface, the cave roars one
   final time, then sinks back into the sand.  JAFAR pulls off
    his disguise.) [yelling]


JAFAR: Heh heh heh! It's mine. It's all mine! I (He can't

       find it in his pocket)--- where is it?  No. NO!!

(Kiss fade to JASMINE's bedroom. She is sitting on her bed, next

   to RAJAH who looks sad. The SULTAN walks in.)

SULTAN: Jasmine? Oh, dearest. What's wrong? JASMINE: Jafar...has...done something... terrible. (She

       looks as if she's been crying.)

SULTAN: There, there, there, my child--we'll set it right.

       Now, tell me everything.

(Cut to int. of cave. ALADDIN lies unconscious on the CARPET.

   ABU tries to wake him.)

ABU: Oh, oh. Aladdin? Wake up. Aladdin.

(CARPET rises up, lifting ALADDIN up. He awakes slowly.)

ALADDIN: Oh, my head. (He looks at the entrance sealed in.)

       We're trapped.  (Angry, shaking his fists at the
       entrance) That two faced son-of-a-jackal!  (Calmer)
       Whoever he was, he's long gone with that lamp.

ABU: Aha!

(ABU pulls out the MAGIC LAMP.)

ALADDIN: Why, you hairy little thief! Looks like such a

       beat-up, worthless piece of junk.  Hey, I think
       there's something written here, but it's hard to
       make out.

(He rubs the LAMP. Suddenly smoke comes out of the hole, the

   LAMP begins to shake and glow, but ALADDIN holds onto the
   LAMP, and our wonderful friend, the GENIE comes out.)

GENIE: Aaaaahhhhh! OY! Ten-thousand years will give ya

       such a crick in the neck!  (He hangs ALADDIN on a
       nearby rock.  Then he pulls his head off and spins
       it around, yelling as he does so.  CARPET pulls a
       ALADDIN down.)  Whoa!  Does it feel good to be
       outta there! (GENIE uses the lamp end of himself as
       a microphone.) Nice to be back, ladies and
       gentlemen.  Hi, where ya from? (Sticks the mic in
       ALADDIN's face.)  What's your name?

ALADDIN: Uh, Al--uh--Aladdin. GENIE: (Says his name as if he's discovered something

       major) Aladdin! (A neon sign lights up with
       ALADDIN's name on it, circled by chase lights.  The
       sign changes to reflect the GENIE's upcoming line.)
       Hello, Aladdin.  Nice to have you on the show.  Can
       we call you 'Al?' Or maybe just 'Din?'  Or how
       bout 'Laddi?'  (GENIE disappears, then a dog
       wrapped in plaid jumps in.) Sounds like 'Here, boy!
       C'mon, Laddi!'

ALADDIN: (Shaking his head) I must have hit my head harder

       than I thought.

GENIE: (Still a dog) Do you smoke? Mind if I do? (Dog

       poofs into smoke, then back to the GENIE.  ABU
       screeches wildly.)  Oh, sorry Cheetah--hope I
       didn't singe the fur!  Hey, Rugman!  Haven't seen
       you in a few millennia!  Slap me some tassel!  Yo!
       Yeah! (CARPET flies over and high fives the GENIE.
       GENIE looks at ALADDIN.)  Say, you're a lot smaller
       than my last master. (Lifts his beer-gut.)  Either
       that or I'm gettin' bigger.  Look at me from the
       side--do I look different to you?

ALADDIN: Wait a minute! I'm--your master? GENIE: (Slaps a diploma in ALADDIN's hand and a

       mortarboard on his head.)  That's right!  He can
       be taught!! What would you wish of me, (as Arnold
       Schwarzenegger)  the ever impressive,(inside a
       cube) the long contained, (as a ventriloquist with
       a dummy) often imitated, (tosses the dummy aside)
       but never duplicated--

(He multiplies into multiple GENIES who surround him.)

DUP. GENIES: Duplicated, duplicated, duplicated,

           duplicated,  duplicated,  duplicated,
           duplicated, duplicated, duplicated.

GENIE: (Says it like a ring announcer at a boxing match.)

       Genie!  Of!  The Lamp!  (Goes into Ed
       Sullivan)  Right here direct from the lamp, right
       here for your enjoyment wish fulfillment.
       Thank you!

ALADDIN: Whoa! Wish fulfillment? GENIE: Three wishes to be exact. And ix-nay on the

       wishing for more wishes.  (Turns into a slot
       machine, arm pulls down and three GENIEs appear in
       the windows.)  That's it--three.  (Three GENIE
       caballeros come out of the slot.)  Uno, dos, tres.
       (Changes into b/w Groucho Marx.)  No
       substitutions, exchanges or refunds.  (The duck
       drops with the secret word "Refunds.'

ALADDIN: (To ABU) Now I know I'm dreaming. GENIE: (Music for "Friend Like Me" begins) Master, I don't

       think you quite realize what you've got here! So
       why don't you just ruminate, whilst I illuminate
       the possibilities.  (GENIE lights up like a
       fluorescent light)
   Well Ali Baba had them forty thieves
   Scheherazadie had a thousand tales
   But master you in luck 'cause up your sleeve
   You got a brand of magic never fails!

(GENIE produces 40 thieves who surround ALADDIN with swords.

   GENIE appears in his vest, then sticks his arms out and boxes
   the thieves into submission.)
   You got some power in your corner now
   Some heavy ammunition in your camp
   You got some punch, pizzazz, yahoo and how
   See all you gotta do is rub that lamp
   And I'll say

(Boxing ring appears, ALADDIN in the corner, being massaged

   by GENIE.  Then GENIE turns into a pile of fireworks and
   explodes.  Then GENIE appears inside lamp and grabs ALADDIN's
    hand and rubs lamp with it.)
   Mister Aladdin sir
   What will your pleasure be?
   Let me take your order, jot it down
   You ain't never had a friend like me
   No no no!

(GENIE produces a table and chairs, then writes down things on a

   note pad, like a waiter. )
   Life is your restaurant
   And I'm your maitre' d!
   C'mon whisper what it is you want
   You ain't never had a friend like me.

(GENIE appears as a plate of chicken, then returns to normal,

   but enlarges his ear to listen to ALADDIN.  Finally, he explodes
    into four duplicate GENIEs.)
   Yes sir, we pride ourselves on service
   You're the boss, the king, the shah!
   Say what you wish, it's yours!  True dish
   How about a little more Baklava?

(The GENIEs give him a shave, haircut and manicure, then ALADDIN

   appears in a comfy chair (eh?)  surrounded by the treasure
   and being fanned by women.  The GENIE appears and fills the
   screen with baklava.)
   Try some of column 'A'
   Try all of column 'B'
   I'm in the mood to help you dude
   You ain't never had a friend like me

(ALADDIN rises up on a column of food with a giant A on top,

   then jumps to another column with a B on top.  He falls off
   and is caught by a cushion held by GENIE.  He opens his mouth,
   and his tongue turns into a staircase.  A miniature GENIE
    dressed like a magician comes out.)

(The mini GENIE does a little dance with the GENIE's two giant

   hands.  At the end, they surround the mini GENIE and squish
   him into nothing.)
   Can your friends do this?
   Do your friends do that?
   Do your friends pull this out their little hat
   Can your friends go poof!
   Well looky here
   Can your friends go Abracadabra, let 'er rip
   And then make the sucker disappear?

(The GENIE pulls off his head, duplicates it, then juggles them.

   He tosses them to ALADDIN, who juggles with one hand and spins
   one of the heads on his fingertip like a basketball.  He tosses
    the heads back onto the GENIE, who proceeds to try and pull
    himself out of a hat at his base.  He spirals around and around
    until he turns into a white rabbit.  The rabbit transforms into
   a purple dragon (very reminiscent of Figment from EPCOT Center).
    The dragon breathes fire, which turns into three HAREM GIRLS,
   who dance around ALADDIN.  Just as he begins to enjoy them,
    they disappear.)
   So don't you sit there slack jawed, buggy eyed
   I'm here to answer all your midday prayers
   You got me bona fide, certified
   You got a genie for a charg? d'affairs!
   I got a powerful urge to help you out
   So what you wish I really want to know
   You got a wish that's three miles long, no doubt
   So all you gotta do is rub like so, and oh!

(GENIE imitates what he is calling ALADDIN, then turns into a

   certificate which rolls up and surrounds ALADDIN.  GENIE pulls
    a list {written in Arabic} out of ALADDIN's ear, which he uses
   to rub his behind like drying off after a shower.)
   Mister Aladdin, sir, have a wish or two or three
   I'm on the job, you big nabob
   You ain't never had a friend, never had a friend
   You ain't never had a friend, never had a friend
   You ain't never...had a... friend...!
   You ain't never had a friend like me!

(The dancing HAREM GIRLS reappear, and ALADDIN leans in to kiss one.

    She turns into the GENIE, who zaps four dancing elephants into
   existence.  To the other direction, he zaps in four dancing camels,
    and a grand finale dancing number ensues.  ABU grabs as much gold
    as he can, but the GENIE wraps everything up in a cyclone and
   zaps it away until they're all back in the cave.  GENIE has a
   neon "APPLAUSE" sign on his back. ABU turns his hat over and
   sees that is is empty.)

GENIE: So what'll it be, master? ALADDIN: You're gonna grant me any three wishes I want? GENIE: (As William F. Buckley) Ah, almost. There are a

       few provisos, a couple of quid pro quos

ALADDIN: Like? GENIE: Ah, rule number one: I can't kill anybody. (He

       slices his head off with his finger.)  So don't
       ask.  Rule two: I can't make anyone fall in love
       with anyone else.  (Head turns into a big pair of
       lips which kiss ALADDIN.)  You little punim, there.
       (Lies flat, then gets up and transforms into a
       zombie.) Rule three: I can't bring people back from
       the dead.  It's not a pretty picture, (He grabs
       ALADDIN and shakes him) I don't like doing it!  (He
       poofs back to normal.)  Other than that, you got

ALADDIN: (Looks at ABU as if plotting) Ah, provisos? You

       mean limitations?  On wishes? (To ABU) Some all
       powerful genie--can't even bring people back from
       the dead. I don't know, Abu--he probably can't even
       get us out of this cave.  Looks like we're gonna
       have to find a way out of here--

(They start to leave, but a big blue foot stomps down in front of


GENIE: Excuse me? Are you lookin' at

       me?  Did you rub my lamp? Did you wake me up, did
       you bring me here?  And all of a sudden, you're
       walkin' out on me?  (Gets madder and madder) I
       don't think so, not right now.  You're gettin' your
       wishes, so siddown!  (They all get on CARPET.
       GENIE takes the form of a stewardess, with lots of
       arms pointing out the exits.)  In case of
       emergency, the exits are here, here, here,
       here,here, here, here, here, here, here, here,
       here, anywhere!  Keep your hands and arms inside
       the carpet.  Weeee'rrrrrreee...outta here!

(The CARPET and passengers fly out of the sand in the desert and off

   into the distance.  Cut to int. of SULTAN's chamber. JAFAR is
   there with IAGO, JASMINE and the SULTAN.)

SULTAN: Jafar, this is an outrage. If it weren't for all

       your years of loyal service... . From now on,
       you are to discuss sentencing of prisoners with me,
       before they are beheaded.

JAFAR: I assure you, your highness, it won't happen again. SULTAN: Jasmine, Jafar, now let's put this whole messy business behind us. Please?

JAFAR: My most abject and humblest apologies to you as

       well, princess.  (He takes her hand to kiss it, but
       she yanks it away.)

JASMINE: At least some good will come of my being forced to

       marry.  When I am queen, I will have the
       power to get rid of you.

SULTAN: That's nice. All settled, then. Now, Jasmine,

       getting back to this suitor business, (he
       looks and sees Jasmine walking out) Jasmine?
       Jasmine!  (He runs after her.)

JAFAR: If only I had gotten that lamp! IAGO: (As JASMINE) I will have the power to get rid of

       you!  D'oh!  To think--we gotta keep kissing
       up to that chump, and his chump daughter for the
       rest of our lives...

JAFAR: No, Iago. Only until she finds a chump husband.

       Then she'll have us banished--or beheaded!

BOTH: Eeewww! IAGO: (Has an idea) Oh! Wait a minute! Wait a minute!

       Jafar?  What if you were the chump husband?

JAFAR: (He looks at IAGO in insult) What? IAGO: Okay, you marry the princess,all right? Then, uh,

       you become sultan!

JAFAR: Oh!Marry the shrew? I become sultan. The idea has


IAGO: Yes, merit! Yes! And then we drop papa-in-law and

       the little woman off a cliff!  (Dive bombs into the
       floor)  Kersplat!

JAFAR: Iago, I love the way your foul little mind works!

(Both laugh as we cut to an oasis in the desert, where CARPET is

   coming in for a landing.)

GENIE: (Still as stewardess) Thank you for choosing Magic

       Carpet for all your travel needs.  Don't stand
       until the rug has come to a complete stop.  (As
       ALADDIN and ABU get off down the stairway formed by
       CARPET) Thank you.  Good bye, good bye!  Thank you!
       Good bye!  (Back to normal)  Well, now.  How about
       that, Mr.  doubting mustafa?

ALADDIN: Oh, you sure showed me. Now about my three wishes- GENIE: Dost mine ears deceive me? Three? You are down by

       ONE, boy!

ALADDIN: Ah, no--I never actually wished to get out of the

       cave.  You did that on your own.

(GENIE thinks for a second, then his jaw drops. He turns into a


GENIE: Well, don't I feel just sheepish? All right, you

       baaaaad boy,  but no more freebies.

ALADDIN: Fair deal. So, three wishes. I want them to be

       good.  (To GENIE) What would you wish for?

(GENIE is hanging like a hammock between two trees.)

GENIE: Me? No one's ever asked me that before. Well, in

       my case, ah, forget it.

ALADDIN: What? No, tell me. GENIE: Freedom. ALADDIN: You're a prisoner? GENIE: It's all part-and-parcel, the whole genie gig.

       (Grows gigantic, voice echoes) Phenomenal cosmic
       powers!  (Shrinks down, cramped in MAGIC LAMP.)
       Itty bitty living space

ALADDIN: Genie, that's terrible. GENIE: (Comes out of the LAMP) But, oh--to be free. Not

       have to go "Poof! What do you need? Poof! What do
       you need? Poof! What do you need?"  To be my own
       master, such a thing would be greater than all the
       magic and all the treasures in all  the world! But
       what am I talking about, here?  Let's get real
       here.  It's not gonna happen.  Genie, wake up and
       smell the hummus

ALADDIN: Why not? GENIE: The only way I get outta this is if my master

       wishes me out.  So you can guess how often that's

ALADDIN: I'll do it. I'll set you free. GENIE: (Head turns into Pinocchio's with a long nose) Uh

       huh, right.  Whoop!

ALADDIN: No, really, I promise. (He pushes the nose back in

       and GENIE's head returns to normal.) After make my
       first two wishes, I'll use my third wish to set you
       free.   (He holds out his hand)

GENIE: Well, here's hopin'. (Shakes ALADDIN's hand.)

       All right. Let's make some magic.  (Turns into a
       magician.)  So how 'bout it.  What is it you want

ALADDIN: Well, there's this girl. GENIE: Eehhh! (Like a buzzer, and GENIE's chest shows a

       heart with a cross through it.)  Wrong.  I can't
       make anybody fall in love, remember?

ALADDIN: Oh, but, Genie, she's smart and fun and... GENIE: Pretty? ALADDIN: Beautiful. She's got these eyes that just... and

       this hair. Wow. And her smile... [sighs]

GENIE: (Sitting in a Parisian cafe with ABU and CARPET.)

       Ami.  C'est l'amour.

ALADDIN: But she's the princess. To even have a chance, I'd

       have to be... Hey, can you make me a prince?

GENIE: Let's see here. (Has a "Royal Cookbook".)

       Chicken à la king? (Pulls out a chicken with a
       crown on its head)  Nope. Alaskan king crab.
       (Yanks out his finger, and we see SEBASTIAN the crab from
       "The Little Mermaid"  clamped on.)  Ow. I
       hate it when they do that. Caesar's salad? Ah! (A
       dagger comes out and tries to stab him.) Et tu,
       Brute? No. Aha. "To make a prince."  (Looks slyly at
       ALADDIN.) Is that an official wish? Say the

ALADDIN: Genie, I wish for you to make me a prince! GENIE: All right! Woof woof woof woof! (Takes on square

       shoulders and looks like Arsenio Hall. Then becomes
       a tailor/fashion designer.)  First, that fez and
       vest combo is much too third century. These
       patches--what are we trying to say--beggar?  No!
       Let's work with me here. (He takes ALADDIN's
       measurements, snaps his fingers and ALADDIN is
       outfitted in his prince costume.)  I like it, muy
       macho!  Now, still needs something.  What does it
       say to me?  It says mode of transportation.  Excuse
       me, monkey boy!  Aqui, over here!  (ABU tries to
       cover himself with CARPET, but GENIE zaps him and
       he flies over.)

ABU: Uh oh! GENIE: Here he comes, (ALADDIN and GENIE are on a game

       show set, where ALADDIN stands behind a podium with
       "AL" on it.)  And what better way to make your
       grand entrance on the streets of Agrabah, than
       riding your very own brand new camel!  Watch out,
       it spits!  (A door bearing the GENIE's head on it
       opens, where ABU is transformed into a camel.  He
       spits out the side of his mouth on cue.  But the
       GENIE's not sure.)  Mmm, not enough.  (He snaps his
       fingers and ABU turns into a fancy white horse.)
       Still not enough.  Let's see.  What do you need?
       (The GENIE snaps his fingers repeatedly, turning
       ABU into:  a duck, an ostrich, a turtle, and a '57
       Cadillac, with license plate "ABU 1."   (That one's
       a guess, I don't know cars, but judging by the tail
       fins, 'nuff said.)  Finally, he's returned to
       normal.)  Yes!!  Esalalumbo,  shimin dumbo!  Whoa!!
       (And on the keyword of the spell, Dumbo, ABU turns
       into an elephant.  CARPET struggles to get out from
       under ABU's size 46 feet.)  Talk about your trunk
       space, check this action out!

(ABU sees his reflection in a pool of water, then jumps into a tree.

    The tree naturally bends right back down to the ground, where ABU
    hangs on and looks at ALADDIN upside down.)

ALADDIN: Abu, you look good. GENIE: He's got the outfit, he's got the elephant, but

       we're not through yet.  Hang on to your turban,
       kid, cause we're gonna make you a star!

(We zoom out slowly with the oasis in the distance, as fireworks

   begin to explode outward.  Cut to a CU of a pile of toys.
   (Look for the BEAST here.)  We tilt up and see the SULTAN
   balancing them.  He carefully balances the last piece on top,
    then sits back and sighs.  JAFAR storms in, though, and the
   pile collapses.)

JAFAR: Sire, I have found a solution to the problem with

       your daughter.

IAGO: Awk! The problem with your daughter! SULTAN: Oh, really? JAFAR: (Unrolling a scroll) Right here. "If the princess

       has not chosen a husband by the appointed time,
       then the sultan shall choose for her."

SULTAN: But Jasmine hated all those suitors! (He tries to

       stuff a cracker into IAGO's mouth.  IAGO backs
       away.  The SULTAN absentmindedly pulls the cracker
       back.)  How could I choose someone she hates?
       (IAGO is relieved, but the SULTAN quickly stuffs a
       cracker in his mouth.)

JAFAR: Not to worry, my liege. There is more. If, in the

       event a suitable prince cannot be found, a princess
       must then be wed to...hmm...interesting.

SULTAN: What? Who? JAFAR: The royal vizier! Why, that would! SULTAN: Why, I thought the law says that only a prince can

       marry a princess, I'm quite sure.

JAFAR: Desperate times call for desperate measures, my

       lord.  (He pulls out the staff and hypnotizes the
       SULTAN with it.)

SULTAN: Yes...desperate measures... JAFAR: You will order the princess to marry me. SULTAN: I...will order...the spell

       breaks momentarily)...but you're so old!

JAFAR: (Holds the staff closer) The princess will marry


SULTAN: The princess will marry...(the spell is again

       broken, this time by the trumpet fanfare of "Prince
       Ali".)  What? What is that?  That music!  Ha ha ha.
       Jafar., you must come and see this!

(We see an advancing parade, led by what appears to be the GENIE in

   human form as a MAJOR.)

MARCHERS: Make way for Prince Ali! SWORDSMEN: Say hey! It's Prince Ali! MAJOR: Hey, clear the way in the old bazaar,

   Hey you, let us through, it's a bright new star,
   Oh, come, be the first on your block to meet his eye!
   Make way, here he comes,
   Ring bells, bang the drums.
   You're gonna love this guy

(The MAJOR mingles amongst different crowd members.)

   Prince Ali, fabulous he, Ali Ababwa!
   Genuflect, show some respect
   Down on one knee

(ABU the elephant marches through town, with ALADDIN (ALI) on his back.)

   Now try your best to stay calm
   Brush up your Sunday Salaam
   And come and meet his spectacular coterie.

(IAGO is dancing to the music until JAFAR glares at him. The

   MAJOR "wheelbarrows" six men up onto ABU's trunk.  They stand
   on each other's shoulders as ALI shakes hands.)
   Prince Ali, mighty is he, Ali Ababwa!
   Strong as ten regular men, definitely
   He faced the galloping hordes
   A hundred bad guys with swords
   Who sent those goons to their lords, why Prince Ali!

(The pile collapses on ALI, but a GENIE (tm) brand lightning bolt

   zaps the pile and he ends up holding them all up in an acrobatic
    wheel formation.  The GENIE turns into an old man, then a child
   and speaks the last two lines to the crowd.)

CHORUS OF MEN:(Carrying the camels) He's got 75 golden camels!

(In pops a typical parade commentator)

HARRY: Don't they look lovely, June?

CHORUS OF WOMEN: (On a float) Purple peacocks, he's got 53!

(In comes another commentator.)

JUNE: Fabulous, Harry. I love the feathers.

GENIE: (GENIE is off screen, a giant balloon gorilla proceeds down

           the parade)
   When it comes to exotic-type mammals
   Has he got a zoo I'm telling you
   It's a world-class menagerie!

(GENIE pops in as a leopard, then a goat, and speaks the last two

   lines to the two children from earlier.  We cut to a balcony,
   where three HAREM GIRLS are joined by the HAREM GENIE.)
       GIRLS: (in couterpoint)
   Prince Ali, handsome is he Ali Ababwa
       There's no question this Ali's alluring
   That physique, how can I speak
       Never ordinary, never boring
   Weak at the knee
       Everything about the man just plain impresses
   Well, get on out in that square
       He's a wonder, he's a whiz, a wonder
   Adjust your veil and prepare
       He's about to pull my heart asunder
   To gawk and grovel and stare at Prince Ali!
       And I absolutely love the way he dresses!

(JASMINE has been watching from the balcony of the palace. She

   humphs it off, then leaves.)

CHORUS: He's got 95 white Persian monkeys!

   (He's got the monkeys, let's see the monkeys!)
   And to view them, he charges no fee!
   (He's generous, so generous)
   He's got slaves, he's got servants and flunkies!
   (Proud to work for him)
   They bow to his whim, love serving him
   They're just lousy with loyalty to Ali!  Prince Ali!

(ALADDIN throws gold coins out to the people, who rush over to

   collect them.  ABU and the parade march up the steps of the
   palace and inside.  The SULTAN runs back inside to the door
   to the throne room, but JAFAR stands in front of the door.
   Suddenly, it bursts open, with ABU leading the way, and crushing
    JAFAR and IAGO behind the door.

GENIE: Prince Ali, Amorus he! Ali Ababwa!

   Heard your princess was a sight lovely to see!
   And that, good people, is why
   He got dolled up and dropped by
   With 60 elephants, llamas galore
   With his bears and lions
   A brass band and more
   With his 40 fakirs, his cooks, his bakers
   His birds that warble on key
   Make way for Prince Ali!

(More and more fanfare build up until ALADDIN flies off ABU's back

   on MAGIC CARPET and flies down to the SULTAN.  JAFAR slams the
    door shut.)

SULTAN: (Clapping) Splendid, absolutely marvelous. ALADDIN: (Takes on a deeper voice.) Ahem. Your majesty, I have

           journeyed from afar to seek your daughter's hand.

SULTAN: Prince Ali Ababwa! Of course. I'm delighted to

       meet you.  (He rushes over and shakes ALI's hand.)
       This is my royal vizier, Jafar.  He's delighted

JAFAR: (Extremely dryly) Ecstatic. I'm afraid, Prince


ALADDIN: --Ababwa! JAFAR: Whatever. You cannot just parade in here uninvited

       and expect to--

SULTAN: Allah, this is quite a remarkable device.

       (He tugs at the tassels, and they tug his
       moustache.)  I don't suppose I might...

ALADDIN: Why certainly, your majesty. Allow me.

(He helps the SULTAN up onto the CARPET, and he plops down.

   JAFAR pins the CARPET down on the floor with the staff.)

JAFAR: Sire, I must advise against this-- SULTAN: --Oh, button up, Jafar. Learn to have a little fun.

(He kicks away the staff and CARPET and SULTAN fly away. IAGO, who

   was standing on the head of the staff, falls down, repeatedly
    bopping the staff with his beak as he descends.  SULTAN and
   CARPET fly high into the ceiling, then begin a dive-bomb attack,
    flying under ABU, scaring him.  The flight continues in the
   background, while JAFAR and ALI talk in the foreground.)

JAFAR: Just where did you say you were from? ALADDIN: Oh, much farther than you've traveled, I'm sure.

       (He smiles.  JAFAR does not.)

JAFAR: Try me. (IAGO lands on the staff.) SULTAN: Look out, Polly!

(They all duck in time as the CARPET whizzes centimetres over their

   heads.  CARPET returns and the SULTAN chases IAGO around the room.)

IAGO: Hey, watch it. Watch it with the dumb rug!

(The CARPET zooms underneath IAGO, who sighs, wipes his brow, and

   crashes into a pillar.  He crashes to the floor, and his head
   is circled by miniature SULTANS on CARPETS, saying "Have a cracker,
   have a cracker.  The real SULTAN begins his final approach.)

SULTAN: Out of the way, I'm coming in to land. Jafar, watch this! (He lands.)

JAFAR: Spectacular, your highness. SULTAN: Ooh, lovely. Yes, I do seem to have a knack for

       it.  (CARPET walks over to ABU dizzily, then
       collapses.  ABU catches it.)  This is a very
       impressive youth. And a prince as well.   (Whispers
       to JAFAR) If we're lucky, you won't have to marry
       Jasmine after all.

JAFAR: I don't trust him, sire. SULTAN: Nonsense. One thing I pride myself on Jafar, I'm an excellent judge of character.

IAGO: Oh, excellent judge, yeah, sure...not!!!

(JASMINE walks in quietly.)

SULTAN: Jasmine will like this one! ALADDIN: And I'm pretty sure I'll like Princess Jasmine! JAFAR: Your highness, no. I must intercede on Jasmine's

       behalf.  (JASMINE hears this and gets mad.) This
       boy is no different than the others.  What makes
       him think he is worthy of the princess?

ALADDIN: Your majesty, I am Prince Ali Ababwa! (He pricks

       JAFAR's goatee, which springs out in all
       directions.)  Just let her meet me.  I will win
       your daughter!

JASMINE: How dare you! (They all look at her surprised.)

       All of you, standing around deciding my future?  I
       am not a prize to be won!  (She storms out.)

SULTAN: Oh, dear. Don't worry, Prince Ali. Just give Jasmine time to cool down. (They exit.)

JAFAR: I think it's time to say good bye to Prince Abooboo.

(Diss to JASMINE on her balcony at night. We tilt down and find ALADDIN and company in the courtyard.)

ALADDIN: What am I going to do? Jasmine won't even let me

       talk to her.  I should have known I couldn't pull
       off this stupid prince wish.  (ABU struggles with
       his elephant paws to open a banana.  He squishes
       it, and the banana squirts into his eye.  He then
       tosses the banana peel into a heaping pile of the

GENIE: (to carpet, playing chess) So move! (CARPET does,

       knocking a black piece off the board.)  Hey.
       That's a good move.  (As Rodney Dangerfield) I
       can't believe it--I'm losing to a rug.

ALADDIN: Genie, I need help. GENIE: (as Jack Nicholson) All right, sparky, here's the

       deal.  You wanna court the little lady, you gotta
       be a straight shooter, do ya follow me?

ALADDIN: What? GENIE: (Back to normal, wearing a mortarboard. He points

       out his words on a blackboard)  Tell her

ALADDIN: No way! If Jasmine found out I was really some

       crummy street rat, she'd laugh at me. (He
       puts on his turban, which lights up as the GENIE.)

GENIE: A woman appreciates a man who can make her laugh!

       (ALADDIN pulls the chain turning off the light.
       GENIE comes out holding the real turban.)  Al, all
       joking aside, you really oughtta be yourself.

ALADDIN: Hey, that's the last thing I want to be. Okay,

       I'm gonna go see her.  I gotta be smooth, cool,
       confident.  How do I look?

GENIE: (Sadly) Like a prince.

(ALADDIN flies up to the balcony on CARPET. JASMINE is on her bed,

   sighing.  RAJAH is by her side.)

ALADDIN: (From a distance) Princess Jasmine?

(RAJAH looks up and growls.)

JASMINE: Who's there? ALADDIN: It's me--Prince Ali. Ahem--(Then he jumps to his

       deep voice) Prince Ali Ababwa.

JASMINE: I do not want to see you. ALADDIN: No, no, please princess. Give me a chance. (RAJAH

       growls and advances on him.)

JAFAR: Just leave me alone. ALADDIN: Down kitty!

(Over the edge of the balcony, CARPET is watching with GENIE below.)

GENIE: How's our beau doing?

(CARPET cuts his neck with his finger.)

ALADDIN: Good kitty, take off. Down kitty. (He takes off his turban to brush RAJAH away.)

JASMINE: (She looks at him thinking she has seen him before.) Wait, wait. Do I know you?

ALADDIN: (Quickly replaces his turban) Uh, no, no. JASMINE: You remind me of someone I met in the marketplace. ALADDIN: The marketplace? (A bee buzzes around his head.) I have servants that go to the marketplace for me. Why I even have servants who go to the marketplace for my servants, so it couldn't have been me you met.

JASMINE: (She looks disappointed.) No, I guess not.

BEE: (It's the GENIE) Enough about you, Casanova. Talk about her! She's smart, fun, the hair, the eyes. Anything--pick a feature!

ALADDIN: Um, Princess Jasmine? You're very...

BEE: Wonderful, glorious, magnificent, punctual!

ALADDIN: Punctual!

JASMINE: Punctual?

BEE: Sorry.

ALADDIN: Beautiful.

BEE: Nice recovery.

JASMINE: Hmm. I'm rich too, you know.


JASMINE: The daughter of a sultan.

ALADDIN: I know.

JASMINE: A fine prize for any prince to marry.

ALADDIN: Uh, right. Right. A prince like me.

BEE: (Buzzing in his ear) Warning! Warning!

JASMINE: Right, a prince like you. And every other stuffed shirt, swaggering, peacock I've met!

BEE: (Rear end on fire, wearing goggles and crashing) Mayday! Mayday!

JASMINE: Just go jump off a balcony! (She turns and walks away) ALADDIN: What? BEE: Stop her! Stop her! Do you want me to sting her?

ALADDIN: (Swats at bee) Buzz off!

BEE: Okay, fine. But remember--bee yourself! (BEE buzzes into his turban)

ALADDIN: Yeah, right!


ALADDIN: Uh, you're right. You aren't just some prize to be won, (He looks disappointed.) You should be free to make your own choice. (JASMINE and RAJAH look at each other in confusion.) I'll go now. (He steps up on the ledge and drops off.)


ALADDIN: (Pokes his head up from over the edge) What? What?

JASMINE: (Now she's amazed) How--how are you doing that? (She looks over the edge and sees the CARPET.)

ALADDIN: It's a magic carpet.

JASMINE: It's lovely. (CARPET takes JASMINE's hand with a tassel.)

ALADDIN: You, uh, you don't want to go for a ride, do you? We could get out of the palace, see the world.

JASMINE: Is it safe?

ALADDIN: Sure. Do you trust me?

JASMINE: (She looks at him at the saying of that all-important line) What?

ALADDIN: (Extends his hand the same as before) Do you trust me?

JASMINE: (Gets a sly grin on her face) Yes.

(She takes his hand and gets up on CARPET. It zooms into the sky,

   knocking them both into sitting positions.  The music of "A Whole
    New World" swells.  JASMINE looks back and sees RAJAH looking
   up at her questioningly.  She gasps as they fly over the palace
    wall and into the sky.)

ALADDIN: I can show you the world Shining, shimmering, splendid. Tell me princess, now when did you last Let your heart decide?

(CARPET zooms down through the town, stopping slightly to pick a flower. It gives the flower to ALADDIN, who gives it to JASMINE. She smiles.)

   I can open your eyes
   Take you wonder by wonder
   Over, sideways, and under
   On a magic carpet ride

(CARPET does as ALADDIN sings, then zooms into the clouds.)

   A whole new world!
   A new fantastic point of view
   No one to tell us no
   Or where to go
   Or say we're only dreaming

(JASMINE looks back and watches Agrabah disappear from sight. CARPET

   flies in and out of the clouds.)

JASMINE: A whole new world

   A dazzling place I never knew
   But when I'm way up here
   It's crystal clear
   That now I'm in a whole new world with you!

ALADDIN: Now I'm in a whole new world with you!

(They each catch a small cloud as CARPET continues the flight. It

   then circles a pillar of clouds, giving a swirly look to it.)

JASMINE: Unbelievable sights

   Indescribable feeling
   Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
   Through an endless diamond sky

(They join a flock of birds in the sky. One of them looks terrified

   and squawks.  CARPET does somersaults and flips, at times putting
   ALADDIN and JASMINE in free-fall, but catching them.  They then
   zoom above the clouds where a starry night awaits them.)

JASMINE: A whole new world! ALADDIN: Don't you dare close your eyes JASMINE: An hundred thousand things to see ALADDIN: Hold your breath--it gets better! JASMINE: I'm like a shooting star,

   I've come so far
   I can't go back to where I used to be!

(They zoom down over a river, apparently the Nile, for beyond the

    ship's sails are the Great Pyramids.  They wave at a worker
    sculpting the complete nose of the Sphinx.  He smiles, but
   chisels too much and breaks off the front section of the nose.)

ALADDIN: A whole new world! JASMINE: Every turn a surprise ALADDIN: With new horizons to pursue JASMINE: Every moment, red-letter

(They fly alongside wild horses running. JASMINE pets one of them.)

BOTH: I'll chase them anywhere

   There's time to spare
   Let me share this whole new world with you
   A whole new world
   That's where we'll be

(They fly through Greece, where ALADDIN grabs an apple from a

   tree and rolls it down his arm to JASMINE, who is now sure
   she is dealing with ALADDIN, not PRINCE ALI.)

ALADDIN: A thrilling chase JASMINE: A wondrous place BOTH: For you and me!

(CARPET hovers along over a lake, and we see the reflection of

   the moon in the lake.  Fireworks burst and we see the couple
   at a Chinese New Year celebration, sitting on a rooftop.)

JASMINE: It's all so magical. ALADDIN: Yeah. JASMINE: (She looks at him and decides to burst the bubble)

       It's a shame Abu had to miss this.

ALADDIN: Nah. He hates fireworks. (CARPET looks up

       realizing what is happening.)  He doesn't really
       like flying either. (And now ALADDIN realizes it)
       That is...oh no!

JASMINE: (She pulls off his turban) You are the boy from the

       market!  I knew it.  Why did you lie to me?

ALADDIN: Jasmine, I'm sorry. JASMINE: Did you think I was stupid? ALADDIN: No! JASMINE: That I wouldn't figure it out? ALADDIN: No. I mean, I hoped you wouldn't. No, that's not what I meant.

JASMINE: Who are you? Tell me the truth! ALADDIN: The truth? (He looks at CARPET who wave him on,

       giving up hope.)  The truth...the truth is...I
       sometimes dress as a commoner to escape the
       pressures of palace life.  (CARPET slumps down in
       defeat.)  But I really am a prince! (The feather on
        his turban falls down over his eyes.)

JASMINE: Why didn't you just tell me? ALADDIN: Well, you know, um...royalty going out into the

       city in disguise, it sounds a little strange,
       don't you think?

JASMINE: Not that strange.

(She flicks up the feather and cuddles with him. CARPET puts a

   tassel under his "chin" and looks mystified.  Dissolve to ext.
   of palace balcony, where ALADDIN and JASMINE return.  CARPET
   forms a set of steps and she descends.  ALADDIN then descends
    just below the balcony.)

JASMINE: Good night, my handsome prince. ALADDIN: Sleep well, princess.

(They slowly lean forward to kiss, but CARPET bumps him up and they

   kiss sooner than expected.  She walks away slowly then turns and
   looks at him. Finally she enters her room through the curtain.)

ALADDIN: Yes! (He falls back onto the CARPET, who descends to the ground.) For the first time in my life, things are starting to go right.

(He looks up at JASMINE's balcony, and four sets of hands grab him.)

ALADDIN: Hey! What? (A gag is tied around his mouth. Muffled words) Abu! Abu! (We see the elephant hanging from a net tied in a tree.)

GUARD: Hold him!

(Shackles are placed on his feet and his hands. Another GUARD ties CARPET in a knot around a tree.)

JAFAR: I'm afraid you've worn out your welcome, Prince

       Abooboo.  (Walks away.)  Make sure he's
       never found.

(A GUARD hits him in the head, and he falls unconscious. Cut to a

   cliff, where GUARDS laugh as ALADDIN's body drops into the water.
     He is conscious now, but his feet are tied to a rock.  The rock
    hits the sea bottom, then the turban lands and the lamp tumbles
   out.  He sees this and struggles to rub the lamp.  However, he
   loses consciousness and falls to the floor.  The lamp, unsettled
   by his movement, rolls down and rubs against his hands. It shakes,
   and GENIE emerges with a bath brush, rubber duckie, and shower cap)

GENIE: Never fails. Get in the bath and there's a rub at

       the lamp.  (Squeaks the duck)  Hello.  (Sees
       unconscious ALADDIN) Al?  Al!  Kid, snap out of it!
       You can't cheat on this one!  I can't help you
       unless you make a wish.  You have to say  "Genie I
       want you to save my life."  Got it?  Okay.  C'mon
       Aladdin!!  (He grabs ALADDIN by the shoulders and
       shakes him.  His head goes up, then falls.)  I'll
       take that as a yes.  (Head turns into a siren.)
       Wooga!  Wooga!  (Turns into a submarine.)  Up
       scope!  (He babbles in something that sounds like
       German.  On the surface, a giant water spout
       emerges, and lands on top of the cliff.  ALADDIN
       reawakes and coughs the water out of his lungs.)
       Don't you scare me like that!

ALADDIN: Genie, I--uh, I-uh...(He can't think of how to say

       it, so they just hug each other.)  Thanks, Genie.

GENIE: Oh, Al. I'm gettin' kind of fond of you, kid. Not

       that I want to pick out curtains or anything.

(Cut to JASMINE in her room, humming "A Whole New World" and brushing

  her hair.  The SULTAN appears in one of the double doors,hypnotized.)

SULTAN: Jasmine!

JASMINE: Oh, father--I just had the most wonderful time. I'm so happy.

SULTAN: (Still monotone from the hypnosis) You should be, Jasmine. I have chosen a husband for you.

JASMINE: What? SULTAN: (The other door opens and reveals JAFAR.) You will wed Jafar.

(JASMINE gasps at the sight of him.)

JAFAR: You're speechless, I see. A fine quality in a wife.

JASMINE: I will never marry you. (She goes to the SULTAN) Father, I choose Prince Ali!

JAFAR: Prince Ali left!

(A quick pan finds ALADDIN standing in the doorway to the balcony.)

ALADDIN: Better check your crystal ball again, Jafar! JASMINE: Prince Ali!

(JAFAR gasps at the sight of ALADDIN.)

IAGO: How in the he--(back to parrot-ese)--uh, awk! ALADDIN: Tell them the truth, Jafar! You tried to have me killed.

JAFAR: What? (He goes to the SULTAN) Ridiculous

       nonsense, your highness.  He is obviously lying.
       (He brings the staff close to the SULTAN's face.)

SULTAN: Obviously...lying.

(ALADDIN sees the staff with its glowing eyes.)

JASMINE: Father, what's wrong with you? ALADDIN: I know!

(ALADDIN grabs the staff and smashes it on the floor. JAFAR flinchesnand the spell is broken for good.)

SULTAN: Oh, oh, oh my! ALADDIN: Your highness, Jafar's been controlling you with this! (He advances the staff)

SULTAN: What? Jafar? You, you traitor!

(The trio advances on JAFAR.)

JAFAR: Your majesty, all of this can be explained. SULTAN: Guards! Guards! IAGO: Well, that's it--we're dead, forget about it. Just dig a grave for both of us. We're dead.

(But JAFAR sees the lamp in ALADDIN's pocket. He makes a move, but is grabbed by guards.)

SULTAN: Arrest Jafar at once. JAFAR: This is not done yet, boy!

(JAFAR pulls a vial from his pocket. ALADDIN sees this and rushes

   him, but JAFAR throws the vial to the floor.  A large red cloud
   appears.  When it is gone, so is JAFAR.)

SULTAN: Find him, search everywhere! ALADDIN: Jasmine, are you all right? JASMINE: Yes.

(They lean in to kiss, but the SULTAN barges between them.)

SULTAN: Jafar, my most trusted counselor, plotting against

       me all this time.  Just horrible.  How will I ever-
       (He stops in mid sentence and looks at the pair.)
       Can it be true?  My daughter has finally chosen a
       suitor? (She nods) Ha ha!  Praise Allah!  You
       brilliant boy, I could kiss you!   I won't--I'll
       leave that to my--.  You two will be wed at once!
       Yes, yes.  And you'll be happy and prosperous, and
       then my boy, you will be sultan!

ALADDIN: Sultan? SULTAN: Yes, a fine upstanding youth like yourself, a

       person of your unimpeachable moral character is
       exactly what this kingdom needs!  (ALADDIN looks
       concerned at this.)

(Cut to int. of JAFAR's chambers. JAFAR and IAGO enter.)

IAGO: We gotta get outta here! We gotta get-- I gotta

       start packing, your highness.  Only essentials.
       (IAGO starts throwing things out of his cage.
       JAFAR smiles broadly.)  Travel light! Bring the
       guns, the weapons, the knives (Stops and takes out
       a picture of himself    and JAFAR) and how about
       this picture?  I don't know--I think I'm making a
       weird face in it. (JAFAR starts to laugh wildly.)
       Oh, boy--he's gone nuts.  He's cracked.  (IAGO
       flies down to him and knocks on his head.)  Jafar?
       Jafar?  Get a grip, Jafar! (JAFAR grabs him around
       the neck) Good grip!

JAFAR: Prince Ali is nothing more than that ragged urchin, Aladdin. He has the lamp, Iago.

IAGO: Why that miserable-- JAFAR: But you are going to relieve him of it! IAGO: Me?

(Cut to ext. of palace. ALADDIN is looking at the gardens.)

ALADDIN: Sultan? They want me to be sultan?

(GENIE comes out of lamp)

GENIE: Huzzah! Hail the conquering hero! (Turns into a

       one-man band.  He sees ALADDIN walk away with his
       head hung.  He stops, scratches his head, comes up
       with an idea, then zooms over to ALADDIN.  He holds
       up his hands like a director scoping a picture and
       we look through them.)  Aladdin, you've just won
       the heart of the princess.  What are you gonna do
       next?  (ALADDIN looks at him, then walks away in
       sadness to the bed, where he falls on it and sighs.
       GENIE again is confused, then goes to him and pulls
       out a script labeled "Aladdin." Whispering: )
       Psst, your line is "I'm going to free the genie."

ALADDIN: Genie...I can't. GENIE: Sure you can. You just go "Geeeeenie, IIIIIII wiiiiish you

       free."  (He grabs ALADDIN's head and uses
       him as a mock ventriloquist's dummy.  ALADDIN pulls away.)

ALADDIN: I'm serious. Look, I'm sorry--I really am. But

       they want to make me sultan--no!, They want to make
       Prince Ali sultan.  Without you, I-I'm just Aladdin.

GENIE: Al, you won! ALADDIN: Because of you! The only reason anyone thinks I'm

       anything is because of you.  What if they find out
       I'm not really a prince?  (Quietly)  What if
       Jasmine finds out?  I'll lose her.  Genie, I can't
       keep this up on my own.  I-I can't wish you free.

GENIE: (Sarcastically) Fine, I understand. After all,

       you've lied to everyone else.  Hey, I was beginning
       to feel left out.  Now, if you'll excuse me,
       master. (He says the last word in disgust, then
       poofs back into the lamp.)

(ABU and CARPET are watching from the window.)

ABU: Ohhh. ALADDIN: Genie, I'm really sorry. (A tongue comes out of the

       spout and raspberries him.)   Well, fine. (He slams
       a pillow on top of the LAMP.)  Then just stay in
       there!  (He looks at ABU and CARPET.)  What are you
       guys looking at? (They both leave.) Look, I--I'm
       sorry.  Wait, Abu-- wait--I'm sorry, I didn't--
       wait, c'mon.  (He sighs.)  What am I doing?
       Genie's right--I gotta tell Jasmine the truth.

JASMINE: (From a distance) Ali, oh Ali--will you come here? ALADDIN: (Putting on his turban) Well, here goes. (He walks

       into the garden.)  Jasmine?  Where are you?

(We see IAGO wearing a beak and standing on stilts next to a FLAMINGO

   in the pond.  He is imitating JASMINE's voice.)

IAGO: Ahem--In the menagerie, hurry. ALADDIN: I'm coming.

(We see ALADDIN hurry past, not noticing the birds. IAGO laughs,

   then turns back and looks into the face of a FLAMINGO, who is

FLAMINGO: D'uh! IAGO: Ya got a problem, pinky? (He sweeps the bird's

       feet out from under it. IAGO runs into the palace
       and finds the lamp under the pillow.)  Boy, Jafar's
       gonna be happy to see you!  (Stretches his face
       like JAFAR's and imitates it.)  Good work, Iago!
       (Normal) Ah, go on.  (JAFAR) No, really--on a scale
       of one to ten, you are an eleven! (Normal) Ah,
       Jafar--you're too kind.  I'm embarrassed, I'm
       blushing.  (He flies away with the lamp.)

(Cut to the palace entrance. The SULTAN is standing on top, making

   an announcement to the people.)

SULTAN: People of Agrabah, My daughter has finally chosen a


(Cut to behind the curtain, where JASMINE is peeking. ALADDIN

   appears at the bottom of the stairs.)

ALADDIN: Jasmine? JASMINE: Ali, where have you been? ALADDIN: There's something I've got to tell you. JASMINE: The whole kingdom has turned out for father's


ALADDIN: No! But Jasmine, listen to me, please! JASMINE: Good luck! (She pushes him out onto the platform

       with the SULTAN, where he overlooks the entire

SULTAN: ...Ali Ababwa! ALADDIN: Oh, boy!

(Far above, IAGO and JAFAR watch through a window.)

IAGO: Look at them, cheering that little pipsqueak. JAFAR: Let them cheer.

(He lifts the lamp and rubs it.  GENIE comes out.)

GENIE: You know Al, I'm getting (turns and sees JAFAR)

       reallyyyyyy--I don't think you're him.  (He
       descends and consults a playbill.)  Tonight, the
       role of Al will be played by a tall, dark and
       sinister ugly man.

JAFAR: I am your master now. (He throws GENIE to the

       ground and puts his foot on GENIE's face.)

GENIE: I was afraid of that. JAFAR: Genie, grant me my first wish. I wish to rule on

       high, as sultan!!!

(Cut to ext where dark clouds circle the castle. The castle shakes.

   The roof rips off and the SULTAN and ALADDIN duck.)

ALADDIN: Whoa! SULTAN: Bless my soul. What is this? What is going on?

(His turban lifts off his head. When he grabs it, his whole body

   flies up, then is stripped of all his clothing except his boxer
    shorts.  The clothing reappears on JAFAR.)

JAFAR: Heh heh heh!

SULTAN: Jafar, you vile betrayer.

IAGO: That's Sultan Vile Betrayer to you.

ALADDIN: Oh, yeah? Well, we'll just see about that! (Pulls off his own turban, but finds it empty) The lamp!

JAFAR: Finders-keepers, Abooboo.

(They both look up and see a gigantic GENIE lift the palace into the clouds.. ALADDIN whistles and CARPET flies up to greet him. They fly up near the GENIE's head.)

ALADDIN: Genie! No!

GENIE: Sorry, kid--I got a new master now. (He places the palace on top of a mountain.)

SULTAN: Jafar, I order you to stop!

JAFAR: There's a new order now--my order! Finally, you will bow to me!

(The SULTAN bows, but JASMINE does not.)

JAFAR: We'll never bow to you!

IAGO: Why am I not surprised?

JAFAR: If you will not bow before a sultan, then you will cower before a sorcerer! (To GENIE) Genie, my second wish--I wish to be the most powerful sorcerer in the world!

(GENIE extends his finger. ALADDIN tries to stop him, but he cannot,

   and another GENIE (tm) brand lightning bolt  strikes JAFAR,
    returning him to his normal look.)

IAGO: Ladies and gentlemen, a warm Agrabah welcome for

       Sorcerer Jafar!

JAFAR: Now where were we? Ah, yes--abject humiliation!

       (He zaps JASMINE and the SULTAN with his staff, and
       they both bow to him. RAJAH comes running at him.
       He zaps RAJAH, and the tiger turns into a kitty-
       cat.)  Down, boy!  Oh, princess--(lifts her chin
       with his staff)--there's someone I'm dying to
       introduce you to.

ALADDIN: (off-camera) Jafar! Get your hands off her!

(JAFAR zaps ALADDIN. CARPET flies away.)

JAFAR: Prince Ali

   Yes, it is he,
   But not as you know him.
   Read my lips and come to grips
   With reality

(JAFAR brings the two of them closer in the air.)

   Yes, meet a blast from your past
   Whose lies were too good to last
   Say hello to your precious Prince Ali!

(JAFAR zaps ALI back to ALADDIN.)

IAGO: Or should we say Aladdin? ALADDIN: Jasmine, I tried to tell you.

JAFAR: So Ali turns out to be merely Aladdin

   Just a con, need I go on?
   Take it from me
   His personality flaws
   Give me adequate cause
   To send him packing on a one-way trip
   So his prospects take a terminal dip
   His assets frozen, the venue chosen
   Is the ends of the earth, whoopeeeeeeeee!
   So looooooooooooong,

IAGO: Good bye, see ya!

JAFAR: Eeeeeeeex-Priiiiiiiince Aaaaaaaallllllliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!

(JAFAR has zapped ABU back to normal. He sends the two of them into

   a tall pillar, then launches it like a rocket, but not before
   CARPET can get in.  F2B, then we see a snowy wasteland, where
   the pillar crashes and rolls.  It finally comes to a stop.
   ALADDIN emerges, obviously very cold.)

ALADDIN: Abu? Abuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

(He looks back at a shivering pile of

       snow.)  Oh, this is all my fault--I should have
       freed the genie when I had the chance.  (He digs
       out ABU and crads him inside his vest.)  Abu!
       Are you okay?  I'm sorry, Abu--I made a mess of
       everything, somehow.  I gotta go back and set
       things right.  (He starts to walk through the snow,
       and he eventuallysteps on a frozen CARPET.)
       Carpet!  (He looks up and sees CARPET is pinned by
       the pillar.  He tugs to try and free CARPET.  He
       can't do it, so he begins to remove snow from the
       base of the pillar.)   Abu, start digging!  That's
       it!  (Finally, enough snow has been removed, and
       the pillar begins to roll.  ALADDIN runs away,
       looks back, then slides into place.  The pillar
       rolls over him, and when it is gone, ALADDIN and
       ABU are left sitting in the patch of snow made by
       the window of the pillar.)  Yeah!  All right!  (He
       looks up at his turban, made out of scared ABU.
       CARPET shakes off the snow and rushes over to pick
       them up.)  Now, back to Agrabah!  Let's go!

(We cut back to ext. long shot of Agrabah, shrouded in red clouds. Cut to int. and slow zoom of throne room. IAGO has the SULTAN tied up like a marionette, and JASMINE is chained next to the throne.)

IAGO: Puppet ruler want a cracker? Here's your cracker. Shove 'em all right down your throat. Here, have lots!

(JAFAR pulls the chain, and JASMINE walks up to him holding an apple.)

JASMINE: Stop it, Jafar, Leave him alone!

(IAGO stops for a second, then continues.)

JAFAR: It pains me to see you reduced to this, Jasmine. (He takes a bite out of the apple she is holding.) A beautiful desert bloom such as yourself should be on the arm of the most powerful man in the world. (He waves his finger and a crown appears.) What do you say, my dear? Why, with you as my queen...

(She picks up a glass of wine and throws it in his face.)


JAFAR: I'll teach you some respect! (She falls back as he raises his hand to slap her. Then he stops.) Hmm, Genie, I have decided to make my final wish. I wish for Princess Jasmine to fall desperately in love with me.

(We see ALADDIN race back into town.)

GENIE: (Again as Buckley) Ah, master-- there are a few addendas, some quid pro quo-

JAFAR: Don't talk back to me, you stupid blue lout! You will do what I order you to do, slave!

(JASMINE looks up and sees ALADDIN in the window, motioning her to play along.)

JASMINE: (She stands and puts the crown on her head.) Jafar! I never realized how incredibly handsome you are.

(The GENIE's jaw drops.)

JAFAR: That's better. (He pulls the GENIE's jaw up like a shade.) Now, pussycat, tell me more about...myself.

JASMINE: You're tall, well dressed...

(JAFAR walks over to her. ALADDIN jumps down with ABU and GENIE sees them.)

GENIE: Al! Al, little buddy! ALADDIN: Shh! GENIE: (Literally zips his mouth shut, then unzips it.)

       Al, I can't help you--I work for senor psychopath,
       now.  (His head turns into JAFAR's, then back.)

ALADDIN: Hey--I'm a street rat, remember? (He rezips GENIE's mouth.) I'll improvise.

(He slides down a pile of coins and hides close to JAFAR and JASMINE. JAFAR's back is to ALADDIN.)

JAFAR: Go on.

JASMINE: And your so...twisted! (She has her

       arms around him.  She pretends to twist with her
       finger, but she is actually motioning for ALADDIN
       to come over.  He makes his move.  IAGO sees him.)

IAGO: Jaf--mmmmmm! (ABU grabs him and covers his mouth.) JAFAR: And the street rat? JASMINE: What street rat?

(They are about to kiss when IAGO manages to knock over a bowl. JAFAR

   turns to look, but JASMINE grabs him back and kisses him.  ALADDIN
    looks disgusted.  IAGO and ABU both look disgusted.)

ABU AND IAGO: Yuck! JAFAR: That was--(he sees ALADDIN's reflection in her

       crown.) You!!  How many times do I have
       to kill you, boy?
(He zaps ALADDIN.  JASMINE rushes him, and he throws her to the
   ground.  ALADDIN rushes and grabs the staff.)

ALADDIN: Get the lamp!

(JASMINE runs to it. JAFAR, however, shakes off ALADDIN, then zaps her into an hourglass.)

JAFAR: No! Ah, ah, ah, princess--Your time is up!

(Sand begins to fall from the top onto her.)

ALADDIN: Jasmine!

IAGO: Oh, nice shot, Jaf-- (he is knocked out by ABU.)

(ABU rushes for the lamp.)

JAFAR: Don't toy with me! (He's zapped into a toy monkey. ALADDIN: Abu!

(CARPET rushes in.)

JAFAR: Things are unraveling fast, now boy. (CARPET is

       zapped and unravels.  ALADDIN again rushes for the
       lamp.)  Get the point?  (His path is blocked by
       large swords sticking in the floor.  JAFAR grabs
       the lamp and laughs hideously. ALADDIN pulls a
       sword out of the floor.) I'm just getting warmed
       up!  (He breathes a ring of fire around ALADDIN.)

ALADDIN: Are you afraid to fight me yourself, you cowardly snake!?

JAFAR: A snake, am I? Perhaps you'd like to see how...

       snake-like I can be!  (He smiles broadly, and we
       see a snake's tongue come out from behind his
       teeth.  He then turns into a giant cobra, and the
       ring of fire around ALADDIN becomes part of the
       snake encircling ALADDIN.  The snake JAFAR makes
       moves on ALADDIN, and on the third try, ALADDIN
       swings the sword and hits JAFAR.  Cut to GENIE
       cheerleaders wearing 'A' sweaters.)

GENIE: Rickem, rockem, rackem, rake--stick that sword into that snake!

JAFAR: You stay out of thissss!

(GENIE waving a tiny pennant with a 'J' on it.)

GENIE: (Weakly) Jafar, Jafar, he's our man--if he can't do it, GREAT!

(ALADDIN uses the distraction to make a break for the hourglass where JASMINE is trapped. However, JAFAR sees this and blocks the path. ALADDIN is thrown away, and he loses his sword.)

JASMINE: Aladdin!

(ALADDIN jumps on a large gem and slides across the floor, grabbing

   the sword on his way.  He turns a corner, but the pursuing snake
   cannot, and the front half of JAFAR crashes through a wall and
   hangs outside the palace.  ALADDIN jumps up on the snake's back
    and stabs it.  JAFAR screams in agony.  ALADDIN again tries to
    free the princess.)

ALADDIN: Jasmine, Hang on!

(He is about to hit the glass with his sword when JAFAR grabs him.)

JAFAR: (laughs hideously) You little fool! You thought you could defeat the most powerful being on earth!

IAGO: (with GENIE coming up behind him) Squeeze him, Jafar--Squeeze him like a--awk! (GENIE elbows him out of the way)

JAFAR: Without the genie, boy, you're nothing!

ALADDIN: (Has an idea) The genie! The genie! The genie has more power than you'll ever have!

JAFAR: What!?

ALADDIN: He gave you your power, he can take it away!

GENIE: Al, what are you doing? Why are you bringing me into this?

ALADDIN: Face it, Jafar--you're still just second best!

JAFAR: You're right! His power does exceed my own! But not for long!

(JAFAR circles around the GENIE.)

GENIE: The boy is crazy. He's a little punch drunk. One too many hits with the snake. (His hand turns into a snake and he hits his head with it.)

JAFAR: Slave, I make my third wish! I wish to be an all-powerful genie!

GENIE: (Reluctantly) All right, your wish is my command. Way to go, Al.

(GENIE zaps JAFAR with the last GENIE (tm) brand lightning bolt.

   JAFAR's snake form dissipates and he turns into a genie.  We
    see JASMINE's raised hand disappear under the sand. ALADDIN
   runs over and finally smashes the glass. Sand and princess
    pour out.)

JAFAR: Yes! Yes! The power! The absolute power!

JASMINE: (to ALADDIN) What have you done?

ALADDIN: Trust me!

(A black lamp appears at JAFAR's base. JAFAR is busy conjuring.)

JAFAR: The universe is mine to command, to control!

ALADDIN: Not so fast, Jafar! Aren't you forgetting something?

(JAFAR looks down questioningly) JAFAR: Huh?

ALADDIN: You wanted to be a genie, you got it!

(Shackles appear on JAFAR's wrists.)

JAFAR: What!?

ALADDIN: And everything that goes with it!

JAFAR: No! NO!!!

IAGO: I'm gettin' out of here! Come on,

ALADDIN: Phenomenal cosmic powers!

(IAGO tries to fly away, but is sucked in with JAFAR.)

IAGO: You're the genie, I don't want--

ALADDIN: Itty bitty living space.

GENIE: Al, you little genius, you!

(ABU turns back to normal, the CARPET re-ravels, JASMINE, the SULTAN

   and RAJAH are standing together.  RAJAH jumps up into the arms of
    the SULTAN, then they are all transformed.  The SULTAN is crushed
    because of the weight of the new RAJAH.  The palace reappears
    where it used to be in the city.  ALADDIN is left holding the
   new lamp.)

JAFAR: (Both from inside the lamp.) Get your blasted beak out of my face!

IAGO: Oh, shut up, you moron! JAFAR: Don't tell me to shut up! GENIE: Allow me. (He takes the lamp and goes to the

       balcony.  He is now wearing a baseball cap.  He
       winds up as if to throw the lamp, but opens his
       palm flat and flicks it out into the desert
       with his finger.) Ten- thousand years in a cave of
       wonders ought to chill him out!

(JAFAR and IAGO continue to argue as they fade out. JASMINE walks over to ALADDIN. They hold hands, but both look sad.)

ALADDIN: Jasmine, I'm sorry I lied to you about being a prince.

JASMINE: I know why you did. ALADDIN: Well, I guess...this... is goodbye? (GENIE pokes

       his head around the corner shocked at what he is

JASMINE: Oh, that stupid law. This isn't fair--I love you. GENIE: (Wipes away a tear) Al, no problem. You've still got one wish left. Just say the word and you're a prince again.

ALADDIN: But Genie, what about your freedom?

GENIE: Hey, it's only an eternity of servitude. This is love. (He leans down next to her.) Al, you're not gonna find another girl like her in a million years. Believe me, I know. I've looked.

ALADDIN: Jasmine, I do love you, but I've got to stop pretending to be something I'm not.

JASMINE: I understand.

(They take one final look into each other's eyes, then ALADDIN turns to the GENIE.)

ALADDIN: Genie, I wish for your freedom.

GENIE: One bona fide prince pedigree coming up. I--what?

ALADDIN: (He holds the lamp up to GENIE.) Genie, you're free!

(A transformation scene ensues, in which the shackles fall off

   GENIE's wrist and the lamp falls uselessly to the ground.
    GENIE picks it up and looks at it.)

GENIE: (He can't believe it.) Heh, heh! I'm free. I'm

       free.  (He hands the lamp to ALADDIN.)  Quick,
       quick, wish for something outrageous.  Say  "I want
       the Nile."   Wish for the Nile.  Try that!

ALADDIN: I wish for the Nile. GENIE: No way!! (Laughs hysterically. He bounces around

       the balcony like a pinball.)  Oh does that feel
       good!  I'm free!  I'm free at last!  I'm hittin'
       the road.  I'm off to see the world!  I--

(He is packing a suitcase, but looks down and sees ALADDIN looking very sad.)

ALADDIN: Genie, I'm--I'm gonna miss you. GENIE: Me too, Al. No matter what anybody says, you'll always be a prince to me.

(They hug. The SULTAN steps forward.)

SULTAN: That's right. You've certainly proven your worth as far as I'm concerned. It's that law that's the problem.

JASMINE: Father?

SULTAN: Well, am I sultan or am I sultan? From this day forth, the princess shall marry whomever she deems worthy.

JASMINE: (She smiles widely and runs into ALADDIN's arms.) Him! I choose... I choose you, Aladdin.

ALADDIN: Ha, ha. Call me Al.

(They are about to kiss when giant blue hands pull everybody together. GENIE is decked out in a Hawaiian shirt with golf clubs and a Goofy hat.)

GENIE: Oh, all of ya. Come over here. Big group hug!

       Mind if I kiss the monkey?  (He kisses ABU.)  Ooh,
       hairball!  Well, I can't do any more damage around
       this popsicle stand.  I'm outta here!  Bye, bye,
       you two crazy lovebirds.  Hey, Rugman: ciao!  I'm
       history!   No, I'm mythology!  No, I don't care
       what I am--I'm free!

(The GENIE flies up into the blue sky leaving a trail of sparkles behind him. They cut (a jump cut to make matters worse to fireworks exploding over a nightscape. We tilt down and see ALADDIN and JASMINE flying on CARPET.)

ALADDIN: A whole new world JASMINE: A whole new life BOTH: (with off-camera chorus) For you and me! MEN'S CHORUS: A whole new world!

(They fly off into the moonlight, and after they have disappeared, the moon turns and reveals the GENIE's laughing face. Suddenly the film is grabbed "off the projector", the GENIE lifts it up and looks at the audience.)

GENIE: Made ya look!

(Drops the film back to normal, with the normal moon. Fade to black. The End.)
