F: This is the story of how I died.
Don’t worry, this is actually a very fun story and the truth is, it isn’t even mine.
This is the story of a girl named Rapunzel and it starts with the sun.

Now, once upon a time, a single drop of sunlight fell from the heavens and from this small drop of sun, grew a magic, golden flower. It had the ability to heal the sick and injured.
Oh, you see that old woman over there? You might want to remember
her. She’s kind of important.

Well, centuries passed, and a hop skip and a boat ride away there grew a kingdom. The kingdom was ruled by a beloved King and Queen.
And the Queen, (well,) she was about to have a baby. She got sick. Really, sick.
She was running out of time, and that’s when people usually start to look for a miracle. Or in this case, a magic golden flower.

Ah, I told you she’d be important. You see, instead of sharing the sun’s gift, this woman, Mother Gothel, hoarded its healing power and used it to keep herself young for hundreds of years, and all she had to do was sing a special song.
G: Flower, gleam and glow
Let your power shine
Make the clock reverse
Bring back what once was mine
What once was mine
F: All right, you get the gist. She sings to it, she turns young, creepy, right?
Guards: We’ve found it!

F: The magic of the golden flower healed the queen.
A healthy baby girl, a princess was born, with beautiful golden hair.
I’ll give you a hint: that’s Rapunzel.
To celebrate her birth, the King and Queen launched a flying lantern into the sky. And for that one moment, everything was perfect.

And then that moment ended.
G: Flower, gleam and glow
Let your power shine
Make the clock re- [gasps at cut hair]
F: Gothel broke into the castle, stole the child and just like that–

The kingdom searched and searched but they could not find the princess. For deep within the forest, in a hidden tower, Gothel raised the child as her own.
Young R:(Heal what has been hurt)
(Change the fate’s design)
Save what has been lost
Bring back what once was mine
What once was mine
F: Gothel had found her new magic flower, but this time she was determined to keep it hidden.
Young R: Why can’t I go outside?
G: The outside world is a dangerous place, filled with horrible, selfish people. You must stay here, where you’re safe. Do you understand, flower?
Young R:Yes mommy.

F: But the walls of that tower could not hide everything.
Each year, on her birthday, the King and Queen released thousands of lanterns into the sky, in hope that one day, their lost princess would return.

[Pascal flees window to hide]
R: Ha!
Hmm. Well, I guess Pascal’s not hiding out here…
[Pascal sniggers. R finds it]
R: Gotcha!
That’s twenty-two for me. How about twenty-three out of forty-five?
[Pascal frowns]
R: Okay, well, what do you wanna do?
[Pascal motions to go outside]
R: Yeah, I don’t think so. I like it in here and so do you.
[Pascal sticks out tongue]
R: Oh come on Pascal, it’s not so bad in there…
[leaves window]
Seven a.m., the usual morning lineup
Start up the chores and sweep till the floor’s all clean
Polish and wax, do laundry, and mop and shine up
Sweep again, and by then it’s, like, seven-fifteen
And so I’ll read a book or maybe two or three
I’ll add a few new paintings to my gallery
I’ll play guitar and knit and cook and basically
Just wonder when will my life begin?
[paints lights]
Then after lunch it’s puzzles and darts and baking
Papier-mache, a bit of ballet and chess
Pottery and ventriloquy, candle-making
Then I’ll stretch, maybe sketch, take a climb, sew a dress!
And I’ll re-read the books if I have time to spare
I’ll paint the walls some more, I’m sure there’s room somewhere
And then I’ll brush and brush and brush and brush my hair
Stuck in the same place I’ve always been
And I’ll keep wondering and wondering and wondering and wondering
When will my life begin?
[back to window]
Tomorrow night, the lights will appear
Just like they do on my birthday each year
What is it like out there where they glow?
Now that I’m older, Mother might just let me go…

F: Wow! I could get used to a view like this.
St: Rider! C’mon!
F: Hold on. Yup. I’m used to it. Guys I want a castle.
St: We do this job. You can buy your own castle.
[St lower F to steal crown. A guard sneezes]
F: Oh. Hay fever?
Guard: Yea.
[realizes there has been intruder] Huh?
Hey, wait. Hey, wait!
F: Can’t you picture me in a castle of my own? Coz I certainly can. All the things we’ve seen and it’s only eight in the morning (0800). Gentlemen this is a very big day!

R: This is it. This is a very big day, Pascal. Hmm-mm. I’m finally gonna do it. I’m gonna ask her.
G: [distant] Rapunzel!
[R gasps]
G: Let down your hair!
R: It’s time. [Pascal straightens up] I know, I know, come on, don’t let her see you.
G: [distant] Rapunzel, I’m not getting any younger down here.
R: Coming, mother! [pulls up G]
Hi. Welcome home, mother.
G: Uh, Rapunzel! How you manage to do that every single day without fail! It looks absolutely exhausting, darling.
R: Oh, it’s nothing.
G: Then I don’t know why it takes so long! Ergh, ho-ho-ho-ho, darling, I’m just teasing.
R: Hmm, he-he-he. Alright, so, mother, as you know, tomorrow is a very big day–
G: Rapunzel, look in that mirror. You know what I see? I see a strong, confident, beautiful young lady.
Oh look, you’re here too. Er-ha-ha-ha-ha, I’m just teasing! Stop taking everything so seriously, agh.
R: Okay, so mother, as I was saying, tomorrow–
G: Rapunzel, mother’s feeling a little run-down. Would you sing for me, dear? That’ll do.
R: Oh! Of course, mother. [setup]
[speedily] Flower, gleam and glow
Let your power shine
Make the clock reverse
G: –Wait!–
R: Bring back what once was mine
G: –Wait!–
R: Heal what has been hurt
Change the fate’s design
[G brushes hair as quickly as possible]
R: Save what has been lost
Bring back what once was mine
G: Rapunzel!
R: So, mother, earlier I was saying tomorrow’s a pretty big day and you didn’t really respond, so I’m just gonna tell you, it’s my birthday! Uh. Tada!
G: No, no, no, can’t be. I distinctly remember: your birthday was last year.
R: That’s the funny thing about birthdays–they’re kind of an annual thing! Uh.
Mother, I’m turning eighteen, and I wanted to ask, uh, what I really want for this birthday…
Actually what I really want for my birth–want for my birth–
G: Okay, Rapunzel, please, stop with the mumbling. You know how I feel about the mumbling–blah-blah-blah-blah, it’s very annoying, I’m just teasing, you’re adorable, I love you so much, darling. Agh.
[Pascal urges R]
R: Agh, I want to see the floating lights.
G: Uh-huh. What?
R: Oh. Well, I was hoping you would take me to see the floating lights.
G: Oo. You mean the stars.
R: That’s the thing.
I’ve charted stars and they’re always constant–but these–they appear every year on my birthday, mother–ONLY on my birthday. And I can’t help but feel like they’re… they’re meant for me.
I need to see them, mother, and not just from my window. In person.
I have to know what they are.
G: You want to go outside? Why, Rapunzel!
Look at you, as fragile as a flower
Still a little sapling, just a sprout
You know why we stay up in this tower
R: I know but…
G: That’s right, to keep you safe and sound, dear
Guess I always knew this day was coming
Knew that soon you’d want to leave the nest
Soon, but not yet
R: But–
G: Shh! Trust me, pet
Mother knows best
[Lights out]

G: Mother knows best
Listen to your mother
R: Agh!
G: It’s a scary world out there
Mother knows best
One way or another
Something will go wrong, I swear
Ruffians, thugs, poison ivy, quicksand
Cannibals and snakes… The plague!
R: No!
G: Yes!
R: But–
G: Also large bugs
R: Agh!
G: Men with pointy teeth, and stop, no more, you’ll just upset me
Mother’s right here, mother will protect you
Darling here’s what I suggest
Skip the drama, stay with mama
Mother knows best
Ah, hahahaha…
Mother knows best
Take it from your mumsy
On your own, you won’t survive
Sloppy, underdressed, immature, clumsy
Please, they’ll eat you up alive
Gullible, naive, positively grubby
Ditzy and a bit, well, hmm vague
Plus, I believe, gettin’ kinda chubby
I’m just saying ’cause I wuv you
Mother understands, mother’s here to help you
All I have is one request
R: Yes?
G: Don’t ever ask to leave this tower again.
R: Yes, Mother.
G: Uh, I love you very much, dear.
R: I love you more.
G: I love you most. [kisses R’s forehead]
Don’t forget it, you’ll regret it
Mother knows best!

G: Rapunzel! I’ll see you in a bit, my flower.
R: I’ll be here.

F: Uh, uh… Agh! Oh no. No no no no no no no no no no, this is bad, this is very very bad, this is really bad… They just can’t get my nose right!
St: Who cares?
F: Well it’s easy for you to say! You guys look amazing.
[Boxed in]
F: Uh, all right, okay, give me a boost, and I’ll pull you up.
St: Give us the satchel first.
F: Uh? I just–I can’t believe that after all we’ve been through together, you don’t trust me? Ouch.
St: Now help us up, pretty boy.
F: Sorry, my hands are full.
St: What? Rider!
Capt: Retrieve that satchel at any cost!
Guards: Yes sir!
[Maximus neighs, the other brown horses neigh in reply. F being chased]
Capt: We got him now, Maximus!
[chase, Capt knocked off, F rides on Maximus]
F: Ya, haha! –Ooh!
[Maximus comes to adrupt halt, grunts angrily]
F: Ugh! Come on, fleabag, forward!
[Maximus stares at satchel only, to snatch satchel]
F: No!
[Maximus to snatch satchel]
F: No! Stop it, stop it! Give it to me–give me that!–
[chase. F gets hold of satchel]
F: Ha!
[branch breaks, both fall]
F: Aghhhhh! [Maximus neighs in horror]
[Maximus searches for F, F hides & discovers tower, Maximus neighs in distance, climbs it]
F: [enters tower, pants.] Alone at last.
[hit by frying pan]
R: Agh! [fearfully hides, approaches. F: no response]
[Pascal motions head]
[R moves F’s head.]
[Pascal turns brown at pointy-teeth drawing]
[R finds F’s teeth straight.]
R: Oh. [Flicks F’s hair, uncovering his face. Approaches.]
F: Huh?
[R hits F with frying pan. R pants.]

[After some unsuccessful attempts, R eventually hides F in closet, shutting it with a chair]
R: Okay, okay, okay, I’ve got a person in my closet.
I’ve got a person in my closet.
I’ve got a person in my closet! Haha! Uh!
Too weak to handle myself out there, huh, mother? Well… hmm-hmm…tell that to my frying pan–[accidentally hits herself with pan]
[discovers satchel & crown] Huh?
[R takes out crown. R hangs on forearm, Pascal shakes head]
[R uses as magnifying lens, Pascal shakes head]
[R wears crown, Pascal astonished before disapproval]
G: [distant] Rapunzel!
R: [gasps] Oh!
G: [distant] Let down your hair!
R: One moment, mother!
G: [distant] I have a big surprise!
R: Uh, I do too!
G: Oo, I bet my surprise is bigger!
R: I seriously doubt it. [pulls up mother]
G: I brought back parsnips. I’m going to make hazelnut soup for dinner, your favourite–surprise!
R: Well mother, there’s something I want to tell you.
G: Oh Rapunzel, you know I hate leaving you after a fight especially when I’ve done absolutely nothing wrong.
R: Okay, I’ve been thinking a lot about what you’ve said earlier (and)…
G: I hope you’re not still talking about the stars.
R: ‘Floating Lights’, and, yes, I’m leading up to that, and…
G: Because I really thought we dropped the issue, sweetheart.
R: No, mother, I’m just saying, you think I’m not strong enough to
handle myself out there.
G: Oh darling, I know you’re not strong enough to handle yourself out there.
R: But if you just–
G: Rapunzel, we’re done talking about this–
R: Trust me–
G: Rapunzel–
R: I know what I’m saying–[puts hand on chair]
G: Rapunzel–
R: Oh, come on–
G: Enough of the lights, Rapunzel! You are not leaving this tower!
[R lifts her hand off the chair.]
G: Ugh, great. Now I’m the bad guy.
[R sees her painting of the lights, then at her closet.]
R: All I was gonna say, mother, is that, I know what I want for my birthday now.
G: And what is that?
R: New paint. The paint made from the white shells you once brought me.
G: Well, that is a very long trip, Rapunzel. Almost three days’ time.
R: I just thought it was a better idea than… stars.
G: Ugh.
You’re sure you’ll be all right on your own?
R: I know I’m safe as long as I’m here.
G: [kisses R]
I’ll be back in three days’ time.
I love you very much, dear.
R: I love you more.
G: I love you most.
[As soon as G vanishes, R rushes back to her closet]

R: [deep breath] Okay.
[opens closet, F falls out]
[examines F]
[R pulls chair. Pascal wakes up F.]
F: Agh! Huh? Uh? [struggles] Is this hair?
R: Struggling… struggling is pointless.
F: Huh?
R: I know why you’re here, and I’m not afraid of you.
F: What?
[R emerges]
R: Who are you? And how did you find me?
F: Aha.
R: Who are you, and how did you find me?
F: Mm-hm. I know not who you are, nor how I came to find you, but may
I just say…
Hi. How ya doin’? The name’s Flynn Rider. How’s your day goin’? Huh?
R: Ugh!
Who else knows my location, Flynn Rider?
F: All right, blondie–
R: Rapunzel.
F: Gesundheit. Here’s the deal.
I was in a situation, gallivanting through the forest. I came across your tower and… ho, oh no… where is my satchel?
R: I’ve hidden it, somewhere you’ll never find it.
F: It’s in that pot, isn’t it?
[A bang by frying pan.]
F: Er, uh. Huh? [realizes Pascal’s tongue stuck in his ear]
Yike! [shakes off Pascal] Would you stop that?
R: Now it’s hidden where you’ll never find it.
So, what do you want with my hair? To cut it?
F: What?
R: Sell it?
F: No! Listen, the only thing I want to do with your hair is to get
out of it. Literally.
R: Yi. Wait. You don’t want my hair?
F: Why on earth would I want your hair? Look, I was being chased, I
saw a tower, I climbed it, end of story.
R: You’re… telling the truth?
F: Yes.
[Pascal distrusts]
R: I know, I need someone to take me.
[Pascal motions]
R: I think he’s telling the truth, too.
[Pascal motions]
R: (He) doesn’t have fangs, but what choice do I have?
[F struggles]
R: Huh. Okay, Flynn Rider, I’m prepared to offer you a deal.
F: Deal?
R: Look this way.
[F collapses with chair]
R: Do you know what these are?
F: You mean the lantern thing they do for the princess?
R: Lanterns. I knew they weren’t stars.
Well, tomorrow evening they will light the night sky with these lanterns.
You will act as my guide, take me to these lanterns, and return me home safely. Then, and only then, will I return your satchel to you. That is my deal.
F: Yeah. No can do. Unfortunately, the kingdom and I aren’t exactly ‘simpatico’ at the moment. So I won’t be taking you anywhere.
[Pascal: get tough. R pulls F up]
R: Something brought you here, Flynn Rider. Call it what you will: fate, destiny…
F: A horse.
R: So I have made the decision to trust you.
F: A horrible decision, really.
R: But trust me when I tell you this.
[R tugs hair, F falls forward]
F: Ugh!
[R catches chair]
R: You can tear this tower apart brick by brick, but without my help, you will never find your precious satchel.
F: Hmm-mm. Let me just get this straight. I take you to see the lanterns, bring you back home, and you’ll give me back my satchel?
R: I promise.
[F in disbelief]
R: And when I promise something, I never ever break that promise.
[F in disbelief]
R: Ever.
[Pascal nods. F looking at Pascal, then looks at R]
F: All right, listen, I didn’t want to have to do this, but you leave me no choice. Here comes the ‘smoulder’.
[R & Pascal: stern look]
This is kind of an off day for me. This doesn’t normally happen.
… Fine, I’ll take you to see the lanterns!
R: Really?
F: You broke my ‘smoulder’.

F: You comin’, blondie?
[R on window edge]
R: Look at the world so close, and I’m halfway to it!
Look at it all so big, do I even dare?
Look at me, there at last! I just have to do it
Should I? No. Here I go…
[lands on grass]
Just smell the grass! The dirt! Just like I dreamed they’d be!
Just feel that summer breeze, the way it’s calling me
For like the first time ever, I’m completely free!
I could go running, and racing, and dancing, and chasing
And leaping, and bounding, hair flying, heart pounding
And splashing, and reeling, and finally feeling
That’s when my life begins!
[birds chirping]
I can’t believe I did this.
*I can’t believe I did this.*
I can’t believe I did this! Haha.
*Mother would be so furious.*
That’s okay! I mean, what she doesn’t know won’t kill her, right?
*Oh my gosh, this would kill her.*
This is so fun!
*I am a horrible daughter. I’m going back.*
I am never going back! Woo-hoo!
*I am a despicable human being.*
Woo-hoo! Best. Day. Ever!
F: Hmm-mm-m.
You know, I can’t help but notice you seem a little at war with yourself here.
R: [sniff] What?
F: Now, I’m only picking up bits and pieces, of course. Overprotective mother, forbidden road trip. I mean, this is serious stuff. But let me ease your conscience.
This is part of growing up. A little rebellion, a little adventure–that’s good, healthy even!
R: You think?
F: I know. You’re way over-thinking this, trust me. Does your mother deserve it? No. Would this break her heart and crush her soul? Of course. But you just got to do it.
R: ‘Break her heart?’
F: In half.
R: ‘Crush her soul?’
F: [squeezes grape] Like a grape.
R: She would be heartbroken, you’re right.
F: I am, aren’t I? Oh bother.
All right, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m letting you out of the deal.
R: What?
F: That’s right. But don’t thank me. Let’s just turn around and get you home (/find your pan)–and your frog–I get back my satchel, you get back a mother-daughter relationship based on mutual trust and voila! We part ways as unlikely friends.
R: No! I am seeing those lanterns–
F: Oh come on! What is it going to take to get my satchel back?
R: I will use this.
[Ruffling sound in nearby thicket]
R: [gasp] Is it ruffians? Thugs? Have they come for me?
[A rabbit hops out]
F: Stay calm. It can probably smell fear.
R: Oh, huh, sorry. Guess I’m just a little bit… jumpy.
F: Probably be best if we avoid ruffians and thugs, though.
R: Uh-huh, yeah, that’d probably be best.
F: [pause] Are you hungry? I know a great place for lunch.
R: Oh.
F: Oh don’t you worry. You’ll know it when you smell it.

[Maximus searches for F, encounters G]
G: Huh!
[Maximus frustrated]
G: Uh, a Palace horse. Where’s your rider? Rapunzel.
[Maximus puzzled, G runs to tower]
G: Rapunzel, let down your hair!
[No response]
G: Rapunzel?
[climbs hidden stairway to tower]
[searches the tower for R but failed]
[finds satchel, crown, poster of F. Wields knife]

F: I know it’s around here, somewhere.
Ah, there it is, the Snuggly Duckling.
Don’t worry, very quaint place, perfect for you. Don’t want you scaring and giving up on this whole endeavour now do we?
R: Well, I do like duckling.

[opens pub door]
F: Garcon, your finest table please!
[R gasps]
F: You smell that? Take a deep breath through the nose.
[sniff] Really let that seep in.
R: Agh!
F: What are you getting? Because to me,…
R: Agh!
F: … that’s part man-smell, and the other part is really bad man-smell. I don’t know why, but overall [Pascal hides] it just smells like the color brown. Your thoughts?
[R gasps, runs with hair]
Thug: That’s a lot of hair.
F: She’s growing it out. Is that blood in your moustache? Goldie, look at this. Look at all the blood in his moustache.
That, sir, that’s a lot of blood.
Hey, you don’t look so good, blondie. Maybe we should get you a home. Call it a day.
Probably be better off. This is a five star joint after all, and if you can’t handle this place, well, maybe you should be back in your tower.
[R gasps. Pub door shuts]
Vlad: Is this you?
[F moves aside Vlad’s finger on poster]
F: Aw. Now they’re just being mean.
Hook: Ho, ho, it’s him all right. Greno, go find some guards! That reward’s going to buy me a new hook.
Attila: I could use the money.
Vlad: What about me? I’m broke.
R: Please, stop!
F: We can work this out.
R: Please, leave him alone!
F: Gentlemen, please!
R: Give me back my guide!
F: [struggles] Not the nose, not the nose, not the nose!
R: Put him down!
[Silence. Hook turns to her]
R: Whoa! Okay, I don’t know where I am, and I need him to take me to see the lanterns because I’ve been dreaming about them my entire life! Find your humanity! Haven’t any of you ever had a dream?
[Hook approaches R threateningly, but stops just in front of her]
Hook: I had a dream… once.
[swings his axe over a boy, who then plays the accordion]
Hook: I’m malicious, mean and scary
My sneer could curdle dairy
And violence-wise, my hands are not the cleanest
But despite my evil look
And my temper and my hook
I’ve always yearned to be a concert pianist
[climbs stage]
Can’tcha see me on the stage performin’ Mozart?
Tickling the ivories ’til they gleam?
Yep, I’d rather be called deadly
For my killer show-tune medley
–Thank you!
‘Cause way down deep inside I’ve got a dream
Thugs: He’s got a dream! He’s got a dream!
Hook: See, I ain’t as cruel and vicious as I seem!
Though I do like breaking femurs, you can count me with the
Like everybody else, I’ve got a dream!

[G arrives]
Big: I’ve got scars and lumps and bruises
Plus something here that oozes
And let’s not even mention my complexion
But despite my extra toes
And my goiter and my nose
I really want to make a love connection
[in a boat with Shorty]
Can’t you see me with a special little lady
Rowing in a rowboat down the stream?
Though I’m one disgusting blighter, I’m a lover, not a fighter
‘Cause way down deep inside I’ve got a dream!
[swings Shorty]
I’ve got a dream!
Thugs: He’s got a dream!
Big: I’ve got a dream!
Thugs: He’s got a dream!
And I know one day romance will reign supreme!
Though my face leaves people screaming
There’s a child behind it dreaming
Like everybody else, I’ve got a dream
Thugs: Tor would like to quit and be a florist
Gunther does interior design
Ulf is into mime, Attila’s cupcakes are sublime
Bruiser knits, Killer sews, Fang does little puppet shows
Hook: And Vladimir collects ceramic unicorns
[to F] What about you?
F: I’m sorry, me?
Big: What’s your dream?
F: No, no, no. Sorry boys, I don’t sing.
[Swords point at F]
I have dreams, like you, no, really
Just much less touchy-feely
They mainly happen somewhere warm and sunny
On an island that I own, tanned and rested and alone
Surrounded by enormous piles of money
[Thugs throw F up in the air]
R: I’ve got a dream!
Thugs: She’s got a dream!
R: I’ve got a dream!
Thugs: She’s got a dream!
R: I just want to see the floating lanterns gleam!
Thugs: Yeahh!
R: And with every passing hour
[G sees R]
R: I’m so glad I left my tower
Like all you lovely folks, I’ve got a dream
Thugs: She’s got a dream! He’s got a dream!
They’ve got a dream! We’ve got a dream!
So our diff’rences ain’t really that extreme–we’re one big team–
Call us brutal, sick
Hook: Sadistic
Big: And grotesquely optimistic
Thugs: ‘Cause way down deep inside we’ve got a dream!
Hook: I’ve got a dream!
Big: I’ve got a dream!
Thug Chorus: I’ve got a dream! I’ve got a dream! I’ve got a dream!
R: I’ve got a dream!
Thug: Whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!
All: Yes way down deep inside, I’ve got a dream!
Yeahh! [cheer]

Greno: I found the guards.
[F pulls R away]
Capt: Where’s Rider? Where is he?
I know he’s in here somewhere.
Find him, turn the place upside down if you have to!
[F: on seeing his former accomplices, gasps. Hook takes F & R to hidden
Hook: Go, live your dream.
F: I will.
Hook: Your dream stinks. I was talking to her.
R: Thanks for everything. [kisses]

Vlad: I believe this is the man you’re looking for.
Shorty: You got me.
Guard: Sir, there’s no sign of Rider.
[Neigh outside. Maximus opens pub door]
Capt: Maximus.
[Maximus sniffs, neighs at hidden tunnel]
Guard: What’s he doing?
[Capt shakes head. Maximus frustrated, opens up passage]
Capt: A passage. C’mon men, let’s go! Conli, make sure those boys don’t get away!
[Guard points at St. St hits him to floor]
St: Play it safe. We’ll go get the crown. Mmm.

Shorty: I got a dream, I got some dream, I… Oooooh, somebody get me a glass, coz I just found me a tall drink of water.
G: Oh, stop it you big lug. A-ha-ha-ha-ha. Where’s that tunnel led out?
Shorty: Knife!

F: Well, I’ve got to say, didn’t know you had that in you back there. That was pretty impressive.
R: I know! I know.
So, Flynn, where’re you from?
F: Whoo-oo! Sorry, blondie, I don’t do back-story. However I am becoming very interested in yours. Now I, I know I’m not supposed to mention the hair.
R: Nope.
F: Or the mother.
R: Ah, ah.
F: Frankly I’m too scared to ask about the frog.
R: Chameleon.
F: Nuance. Here’s my question (though,): if you want to see the lanterns so badly, why haven’t you gone before?
R: Uh. Huh, well… uh, Flynn… Flynn…
Capt: Rider!
F: Run!
[F & R run, appearing at cliff at end of tunnel. St appear.]
R: Who’s that?
F: They don’t like me.
[The palace guards appear.]
R: Who’s that?
F: They don’t like me either.
[Maximus appears.]
R: Who’s that?!
F: Let’s just assume for the moment that everyone in here doesn’t like me!
R: Here!
[R swings herself to nearby rock]
Capt: I’ve waited a long time for this.
[F smacks all guards with frying pan]
F: Oh mama, I have got to get me one of these!
[Maximus draws sword]
F: Ha!
[Maximus neighs, they duel]
F: You should know that this is the strangest thing I’ve ever done!
[Maximus flicks frying pan out of F’s hands]
F: How ’bout two out of three?
R: Flynn!
[R wraps hair around F’s hand, pulls him, Maximus astonished]
R: Flynn, look out!
F: Whoa, whoa…
R: Ngth!
[St miss F]
F: Ha! You should see your faces because you look… [hits plank] ridiculous.
[Maximus hits plank on dam to get to R]
F: Come on, blondie.
[Just before Maximus could catch her hair, R reaches ground. F & R escape to cave]
R: [just before they were closed in the cave] Aghhhhh!
[F picks up frying pan. F & R run to higher ground in cave. F dives and surfaces several times]
F: It’s no use.
I can’t see anything.
[R dives, F pulls her up]
F: Hey, there’s no point. It’s pitch-black down there.
R: This is all my fault. She was right, I never should have done this.
[sobs] I’m so… I’m so sorry, Flynn. [sobs]
F: Eugene.
R: What?
F: My real name is Eugene Fitzherbert.
Someone might as well know.
R: Hmm.
I have magic hair that glows when I sing.
F: What?
R: I have magic hair that glows when I sing! Flower gleam and glow, let your power shine…
F: [underwater, as R’s hair glows] Whoa!
[F & R swim to remove the rocks and they escape]

[Both cough after surfacing]
R: We made it.
F: Her hair glows.
R: I’m alive. I’m alive!
F: I didn’t see that coming.
R: Eugene.
F: Her hair actually glows.
R: Eugene.
F: Why does her hair glow?
R: Eugene!
F: What?
R: It doesn’t just glow.
F: Why is he [Pascal] smiling at me?

St: I’ll kill ‘im. I’ll kill that Rider!
We’ll cut him off at the kingdom, and get back the crown. C’mon!
G: Boys!
[St turn to G]
G: Perhaps you want to stop acting like wild dogs chasing their tails and think for a moment.
[G holding satchel. St draw swords]
G: Oh-ho, please, there’s no need for that.
[G tosses satchel at St. St find crown]
G: Well, if that’s all that you desire then be on your way. I was going to offer you something worth one thousand crowns, would have made you rich beyond belief and that wasn’t even the best part, hoho, oh well,
c’est la vie. Enjoy your crown.
St: What’s the best part?
G: It comes with revenge on Flynn Rider.

F: So you’re being strangely cryptic as you wrap your magic hair around my injured hand.
R: Sorry. [sigh] Just don’t… don’t freak out.
Flower, gleam and glow
Let your power shine
Make the clock reverse
Bring back what once was mine
[Pascal: Look at your hand]
Heal what has been hurt
Change the fate’s design
Save what has been lost
Bring back what once was mine
[Pascal: This is how it works.]
What once was mine
F: [gasps in horror]
R: (Please) don’t freak out!
[F mouth wide open, R: … please.]
F: Arrrr. I’m-not-freaking-out-are-you-freaking-out-no-I’m-just-very-interested-in-your-hair-and-the-magical-qualities-that-it-posesses-how long has
it been doing that exactly?
R: Uh, forever, I guess.
Mother says when I was a baby, people tried to cut it. They wanted to take it for themselves. But, once it’s cut, it turns brown and loses its power. A gift like that, it has to be protected. That’s why mother never let me… [sigh] That’s why I never left the… hmm.
F: … You never left that tower.
[R puzzled]
And you’re still gonna go back?
R: No! Yes. Ugh! It’s complicated.
Hah. So, Eugene Fitzherbert, huh?
F: Uh, yeah. Well. I’ll spare you the sob story of poor orphan Eugene Fitzherbert, it’s a little bit of a… that’s a little bit of a downer.
[R gets close to F: I want to know more.]
F: Huh.
There was this book, a book I used to read every night to all the younger kids – ‘The Tales of Flynnigan Rider’. Swashbuckling rogue, richest man alive, not bad with the ladies, either. Not that he would to brag about it, of course.
R: Hmm. Was he a thief too?
F: Uh… well, no. Actually, he had enough money to do anything that he wanted to do. He could go anywhere that he wanted to go. And, and, and for a kid with nothing, I don’t know, I… Just seemed like a better option.
R: Hmm.
F: You can’t tell anyone about this, okay? It could ruin my whole reputation.
R: Ah. We wouldn’t want that.
F: Well, a fake reputation is all a man has.
R: Hmm, hmm, hmm–
F: Huh.
R: Hmm hmm.
F: Ahem. Well, I should, um… I, I should… I should get some more firewood.
R: Hey.
For the record, I like Eugene Fitzherbert much better than Flynn Rider.
F: Well, then you’d be the first… but thank you.
R: [smiles] Hmm.
G: Well! I thought he’d never leave!
R: Mother!
G: Hello dear.
R: But I, I, I, I don’t, uh… How did you find me?
G: Oh, it was easy really. I just listened to the sound of complete and utter betrayal and followed that.
R: [sigh] Mother…
G: We’re going home, Rapunzel. Now.
R: You, you don’t understand. I’ve been on this incredible journey and I’ve seen and learned so much.
I even met someone.
G: Yes, the wanted thief, I’m so proud. Come on, Rapunzel.
R: Mother, wait. I think…
I think he likes me.
G: Likes you? Please, Rapunzel, that’s demented.
R: But mother, I…
This is why you never should have left
[R sighs]
Dear, this whole romance that you’ve invented
Just proves you’re too naive to be here
Why would he like you? Come on now, really.
Look at you! You think that he’s impressed?
Don’t be a dummy, come with mummy
R: No!
G: No?! Oh. I see how it is.
Rapunzel knows best
Rapunzel’s so mature now
Such a clever grown-up miss
Rapunzel knows best
Fine, if you’re so sure now
Go ahead, then give him this! [satchel]
R: How did you…?
G: This [crown] is why he’s here!
Don’t let him deceive you!
Give it to him, watch, you’ll see!
R: I will!
G: Trust me, my dear
That’s how fast he’ll leave you
I won’t say I told you so!
No, Rapunzel knows best!
So if he’s such a dreamboat
Go and put him to the test
R: Mother, wait–
G: If he’s lying, don’t come crying,
‘Mother knows best’! [vanishes]
[R looks at crown]
F: So…
[R gasps]
F: Hey uh… can I ask you something? Is there any chance that I’m gonna get super strength in my hand because I’m not gonna lie. That would be stupendous.
[on seeing R] Hey, you all right?
R: Oh! Sorry, yes. Just, em, lost in thought, I guess.
F: I mean because here’s the thing. Superhuman good looks, I’ve always had them–born with it, but superhuman strength? Can you imagine the possibilities of this…?
G: [to St] Patience boys. All good things to those who wait.

[Maximus locates F]
F: Zzz.
[Sweat drops on F]
F: Uh-uh?
[Maximus angry]
F: Well, I hope you’re here to apologize.
[Maximus drags F away]
No, no, no, put me down! Let me go! Let–me–go–!
R: Release–him–
[Maximus shakes F from side to side, R pulls F away, Maximus with F’s boot, runs to confront R]
R: Whoa, whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Easy, boy, easy! Settle down! Whoa, whoa! Easy, boy, easy.
[Maximus stops]
R: That’s it.
[Pascal atop R’s head: Put down.]
R: Now sit.
[Maximus assumes sitting position]
R: Sit!
[Maximus sits like a dog]
F: What?
R: Now drop the boot.
[Maximus stops]
R: Drop it!
[Maximus drops F’s boot]
R: Aww, you are such a good boy! Yes you are. Ho-ho.
[Maximus wags tail]
R: You’re all tired from chasing the bad man all over the place?
[Maximus nods]
F: Excuse me?
R: Nobody appreciates you, do they?
[Maximus grunts]
R: Do they?
[Maximus grunts]
F: Oh come on, he’s a bad horse!
R: Oh, he’s nothing but a big sweetheart!
[Maximus neighs delightedly]
R: Isn’t that right? Maximus?
F: You’ve got to be kidding me.
[Maximus hits R]
R: Look. Today is kind of the biggest day of my life, and the thing is, I need you not to get him arrested.
[Maximus grunts]
R: Just for twenty-four hours and then you can chase each other to your heart’s content, okay?
[F sighs, stretches out his hand. Maximus turns away defiantly]
R: And it’s also my birthday. Just so you know.
[Maximus reluctantly agrees. R hears distant bells, walks away; Maximus hits F in chest]
F: Oom!
[Maximus neighs delightedly]

[R’s mouth: ‘wow’. F & Maximus get into fight, Pascal: behave, then F & Maximus simply beat each other once. R enters city but bumps into animals and people
because her hair was stuck.]
R: Oh, oh, sorry!
[F collects hair, Maximus gallops to catch up. F whistles to a group of little girls, who then braid R’s hair for her.]
R: Thank you!
[Marketplace, R buys two pieces of fruit, but runs on quickly and the two pieces of fruit falls upon the stallowner’s hands. F buys food, R sees mosaic of
the King and Queen and the lost baby princess.]
Girl: It’s for the lost princess.
[R looks closely. The princess had golden hair and green eyes like her. Dancing, and the whole day with F. F & R finally rejoin at end of dance]
Citizen:To the boats!
[F & R separate]

[F rows gondola with R and Pascal.]
F: Hey Max!
[F tosses a bag of apples at Maximus. Maximus turns his nose away]
What? I bought them.
[Maximus eats two apples]
Most of them.
[Maximus stops eating]
R: Where are we going?
F: Well, best day of your life, I figured you should have a decent seat.

R: Hmm.
F: You okay?
R: I’m terrified.
F: Why?
R: I’ve been looking out a window for eighteen years, dreaming about what it might feel like when those lights rise in the sky.
What if it’s not everything I dreamed it would be?
F: It will be.
R: Hmm.
And what if it is? What do I do then?
F: Well, that’s the good part I guess. You get to go find a new dream.
R: Hmm.
[palace, … launch lanterns]
R: All those days watching from the windows
All those years outside looking in
All that time never even knowing
Just how blind I’ve been
Now I’m here, blinking in the starlight
Now I’m here, suddenly I see
Standing here, it’s all so clear
I’m where I’m meant to be
And at last I see the light
And it’s like the fog has lifted
And at last I see the light
And it’s like the sky is new
And it’s warm and real and bright
And the world has somehow shifted
All at once everything looks different
Now that I see you
[F holding two lanterns. R sits]
R: Hmm.
I have something for you, too.
[takes out F’s satchel]
I should have given it to you before, but I was just scared. And the thing is, I’m not scared anymore. You know what I mean?
F: [refuses to take the satchel] I’m starting to.
[R smiles. Both launch their lanterns.]
F: All those days chasing down a daydream
All those years living in a blur
All that time never truly seeing
Things the way they were
Now she’s here, shining in the starlight
Now she’s here, suddenly I know
If she’s here, it’s crystal clear
I’m where I meant to go
[F & R break into song]
F, R: And at last, I see the light
F: And it’s like the fog has lifted
F, R: And at last, I see the light
R: And it’s like the sky is new
F, R: And it’s warm and real and bright
And the world has somehow shifted
All at once, everything is different
Now that I see you
[Pascal blushes]
F, R: Now that I see you.
[F was about to kiss R when he sees his former accomplices at nearby shore]
R: Is everything okay?
F: Huh?
Oh, yes, uh, huh. Yes, of course. I just…
[rows R to shore]
I’m sorry, everything is fine. There’s just something I have to take care of.
R: Okay.
F: I’ll be right back.
[F walks away with satchel]
R: It’s all right, Pascal.

F: Ah, there you are. Huh. I’ve been searching everywhere for you guys since we got separated. Hey, the sideburns just coming in nice, huh? Gotta be excited about that.
Hmm-mm. Anyhow, just wanted to say, I shouldn’t have split, the crown is all yours, I’ll miss ya, but I think it’s for the… best.
[F bumps into St (non-speaking)]
St: Holding out on us again, eh, Rider?
F: What?
St: We heard you found somethin’. Somethin’ much more valuable than a crown.
We want her, instead.
[R sees a shadow]
R: Uh. I was starting to think you ran off with the crown and left me.
[R sees the shadow split into two: St.]
St: He did.
R: What? No, he wouldn’t.
St: See for yourself.
[R sees F on yacht, sailing away]
R: Eugene. [close-up on him sailing]
St: Fair trade, a crown for the girl with the magic hair?
[R turns around]
St: How much do you think someone would pay to stay young and healthy
[St takes bag to catch her]
R: No, please–no! No!
[R’s hair gets caught in log of wood. Beating sounds.]
G: Rapunzel!
R: Mother?
[R finds G, who brought down St]
G: Oh, my precious girl.
R: Mother.
G: Are you all right? Are you hurt?
R: Mother, how did you–
G: I was so worried about you dear. So I followed you. And I saw them attack you and–oh my, let’s go, let’s go before they come too.
[R saw F in distance. Tears well up. Then to mother: open arms.]
R: [sobs] You were right, mum. You were right about everything.
G: I know, darling. I know.

[yacht with F hits kingdom pier]
Guard: Look!
The crown.
F: Rapunzel. Rapunzel!
[apprehended by guards]
No, no, no, no, wait, wait, wait, guys, guys!
[Maximus sees F apprehended]
F: –Rapunzel!
[Maximus sees foggy shore on the other side. Blank scene.]

Capt: Let’s get this over with, Rider.
F: Where are we going?
[Capt: stern look]
F: [hand on his neck] Oh.

G: There. It never happened. Now, wash up for dinner. I’m making hazelnut soup.
[R head low]
G: Huh. I really did try, Rapunzel. I tried to warn you what was out there. The world is dark and selfish and cruel. If it finds even the slightest ray of sunshine, it destroys it.
[R finds sunburst on flag embedded in her bedroom wall murals]
R: [realizes she was the lost princess] Agh! [knocks her dressing

F: [knocks down the two guards beside him, apprehends St] How did you know about her? Tell me, now!
St: It wasn’t us. It was the old lady.
F: Old lady… [apprehended by guards again] Agh! Wait! No! Wait! You don’t understand, she’s in trouble! Wait!

G: Rapunzel? [climbs stairs]
Rapunzel, what’s going on up there?
[R gasps]
G: Are you all right?
R: I’m the lost princess.
G: Oh, please speak up Rapunzel. You know how I hate the mumbling.
R: I am the lost princess! Aren’t I?
Did I mumble, Mother? Or should I even call you that?
G: Oh Rapunzel, did you even hear yourself? Why would you ask such a ridiculous question?
R: It was you! It was all you!
G: Everything that I did was to protect… you.
R: [pushes away G] Ugh!
G: Rapunzel!
R: [descends stairs] I’ve spent my entire life hiding from people who would use me for my power…
G: Rapunzel!
R: … but I should have been hiding… from you!
G: Where will you go?
— He won’t be there for you.
R: What did you do to him?
G:— That criminal is to be hanged for his crimes.
R: [gasps] No.
G: Now, Now. It’s all right. Listen to me. Everything is as it should be. [to pat R’s hair]
R: [apprehends G’s hand] No!
You were wrong about the world.
And you were wrong about me.
And I will never let you use my hair again!
G: Errgh…!
[mirror shatters, G pants, R walks away]
G: You want me to be the bad guy? Fine. Now I’m the bad guy…

Capt: What’s this? Open up!
Shorty: What’s the password?
Capt: What?
Shorty: Nope.
Capt: Open this door!
Shorty: Not even close!
Capt: You have three seconds.
[guard on left hooked away]
Capt: Two…
[guard on right whisked away]
Capt: Three…
[Capt turns around to see F, gasps. Attila hits Capt with frying pan.]
F: Frying pans! Who knew, right?
[3 bangs behind, chase, Ulf mimes to mislead, Vlad scares guards]

[F pants]
Hook: Head down.
F: Head down.
Hook: Arms in.
F: Arms in.
Hook: Knees apart.
F: Knees apart. Knees apart?
[Vlad jumps]
F: Why– why do I need to keep my knees apart–
[F sent into air]
F: Arrghhhh…!
[F saddles on Max just neatly.]
F: Oh.
[Maximus neighs]
F: Max.
You brought them here?
[Maximus neighs]
F: Thank you.
[Maximus smiles, motions to go]
F: No really. Thank you. Uh. I feel maybe this whole time we’ve just been misunderstanding one another, and we’re really just–huh—
[Maximus frustrated]
F: –Yeah, you’re right, we should go.
[escape scene]
F: Max…
Max! Waaahhh…
[Maximus neighs]
F: Okay Max, let’s see how fast you can run.
[Maximus neighs in reply. They reach the tower.]
F: Rapunzel? Rapunzel, let down your hair!
[attempts to climb on his own when R’s hair falls from window. F climbs it.]
Rapunzel, I thought I’d never see you again. Huh? [for R was
chained and gagged.]
R: [gagged] Mm-mm, mm-mm!
[F is stabbed by G, wrenches]
R: Mm-mm! Mm…
G: Now look what you’ve done, Rapunzel.
[F struggles]
R: Mm…
G: Oh, don’t worry, dear. Our secret will die with him.
[F struggles]
R: Mm-mm, mm…
G: And as for us, hmm! We are going where no one would ever find you
R: Mm-mm!
[Pascal bites a piece of G’s dress, G shakes it off]
G: Rapunzel really! Enough already! Stop fighting me!
R: No! I won’t stop. For every minute of the rest of my life I will
fight! I will never stop trying to get away from you! [catches breath]
But, if you let me save him, I will go with you.
F: [struggling] No! No, Rapunzel!
[Pascal reawakens]
R: I’ll never run, I’ll never try to escape. Just let me heal him, and you and I will be together. Forever, just like you want. Everything will be the way it was. I promise.
[Pascal: Huh?]
R: Just like you want.
[catches breath] Just let me heal him.
[G approves, chains F]
G: In case you get any ideas about following us. [leaves F to R]
R: Eu–Eugene!
[F coughs, wrenches]
R: Oh, I’m so sorry. Everything is gonna be okay–
F: No, Rapunzel–
R: I promise you. You have to trust me–
F: No–
R: Come on. Just breathe–
F: I can’t let you do this.
R: But I can’t let you die.
F: [cough] But if you do this, …
R: Shh, shh, shh…
F: … then you…
R: … shh, shh…
F: … will die.
R: Hey. It’s gonna be all right.
[F forces a smile. R is about to sing the incantation]
F: Rapunzel, wait… [approaches R, slices off Rapunzel’s hair with a broken shard of mirror]
R: [hair turns dark brown from cut ends to roots] Eugene, (what…?)
G: No!
[R’s golden hair turns dark brown quickly along its length.]
G: [tries to wrap herself around remaining golden hair] No, no, no… [hand ages] no! What have you done? What have you done? [hair turns white] No!
[Pascal pulls a length of hair, tripping G who falls from the tower. R
stretches her hands as if to stop it from happening.]
G: Arghhh!
[G and her dress turns to dust before her cloak hits the ground. R
returns to F.]
R: [catches breath] No, no, no, no, no, Eugene.
[F coughs]
R: Oh. Look at me, look at me, I’m right here, don’t go, stay with me, Eugene–flower gleam and glow, let your power shine, make the clock reverse, bring back what once was mine–
F: –Rapunzel.
R: What?
F: You were my new dream.
R: [sobs] And you were mine.
[F breathes his last. Tears well up in R’s eyes.]
R: Heal what has been hurt. Change the fate’s design. Save what has been lost. Bring back what once was mine. What once was mine.
[R sobbing, a tear falls on F’s cheek and revives him]
F: Rapunzel.
R: [gasps] Eugene.
F: Did I ever tell you I’ve got a thing for brunettes?
R: [gasps] Eugene!
[R embraces F, then kisses him]

[royal family reunion, F pulled into embrace]
F: Whoa!
[King, Queen, R and F hugging]
F: Well, you could imagine what happened next.

The kingdom rejoiced, for the lost princess had now returned. The party lasted an entire week, and honestly I don’t remember much of it.
[Hook plays the piano]
F: Dreams came true all over the place. That guy went on to become the most famous concert pianist in the world, if you can believe it.
[Big was hit by Hook’s hook. His helmet ended up on a woman’s head]
F: And this guy? Well, he eventually found true love.
[Ulf miming]
F: As for this guy, well, I assume he’s happy. He’s never told me otherwise.
[Guards raise frying pans to Maximus.]
F: Thanks to Maximus, crime in the kingdom disappeared almost overnight…
[A guard hurriedly presents a green apple to Maximus]
F: … as did most of the apples.
[Pascal changing colour]
F: Pascal–never changed.
[R picks up Pascal]
F: At last, Rapunzel was home and she finally had a real family. She was a Princess worth waiting for. Beloved by all, she led her kingdom with all the grace and wisdom that her parents did before her.
And as for me, well, I started going by Eugene again. Stopped thieving and basically turned it all around, but I know what the big question is, hah.
Did Rapunzel and I ever get married? Well I am pleased to tell you that after years and years of asking, and asking, and asking, I finally said yes.
R: Eugene.
F: All right, I asked her.
R: And we’re living happily ever after.
F: Yes we are.
[Shorty raised by lanterns, nodding.]

The end???? Huh!???!?!?!?!?
