Business may be finally picking up again.

It's a person!!

You do it!!

Huh?

Don't keep the people down below waiting.

Yes, sir!

BOSS
Just keep calm.

PAZU
Yes, sir.

BOSS
Brake!!

PAZU
Yes, sir!!
Phew. . .

ASSAYIST
How was it?

MINER
It's no use.
The silver isn't concentrated anywhere.

ASSAYIST
Just digging is useless. . .
Shouldn't you have dug to the east?

MINER
There's only old shafts over there.

MINER
We'll just have to do it over again, won't we?

ASSAYIST
Yes. . .
Over again. . .

MINER
That's it. . .

BOSS
Put out the boiler fire.
No overtime tonight.
These are hard times -- we'll end up starving.

BOSS
Pazu -- oil that run-down engine.

PAZU
Yes, Sir.

CHARLES
It's no use, Mama.
We can't find anything in the dark.

DORA
You think we've searched thoroughly, eh?!

DORA
There's no evidence . . .
We'll start afresh when it gets light.

SHEETA
Ah!!

PAZU
Ha, ha, ha. . .
Well, how do you feel?
Wah!
Hey, wait!!
Wait, I said!!

PAZU
I'm Pazu.
I live alone in this hut.
When I'm done playing, I give them this.

SHEETA
Ha, ha, ha!

PAZU
Heh, I'm relieved.

PAZU
At any rate, you look human.
Until a little while ago, I was worried you were an angel or something.

SHEETA
Thanks for saving me.
I'm Sheeta.

PAZU
Sheeta -- that's a nice name.
I was surprised, the way you fell out of the sky.

SHEETA
I see. . .
Why do you suppose I was saved. . .?
After all, I fell out of an airship. . .

PAZU
Don't you remember?

SHEETA
No. . .

PAZU
Hm. . .

PAZU
Say, can I borrow that for a minute?

SHEETA
This?

PAZU
Yes.

SHEETA
It's been in my family for generations. . .

PAZU
A pretty stone, isn't it. . .
Just a second. . .
Hm. Ha, ha, ha!
Watch!!

SHEETA
Pazu!!

PAZU
Looks like it wasn't this stone after all, eh. . .?
Wah!

SHEETA
Pazu -- ah!!
Pazu -- hang on. . .

SHEETA
Are you OK?

PAZU
Yes -- and you?

SHEETA
Fine.
Does it hurt?

PAZU
Yes.
My head hurts from Boss's fist.

SHEETA
Ha, ha, ha. . .

PAZU
Oh, yeah -- the pot has boiled over.
Let's go in and eat!!

PAZU
You can wash your face over there.
There are towels, too.

SHEETA
Thanks!!

SHEETA
Laputa. . .

PAZU
Sheeta!!
Sheeta, ready yet. . .? That's a photograph Father took from an airship.

PAZU
"Laputa" is an island floating in the sky.

SHEETA
An island that floats in the sky?

PAZU
Yes.
And although it's said to be a legend. . .
My father saw it!!

PAZU
It's the photograph he took then.
Although Swift wrote about Laputa in "Gulliver's Travels",
that was just a story.
Father drew this from his imagination!

PAZU
There's no one living there any more.
But supposedly there's a lot of treasure there.
But nobody believed it.
Father died in Sagi, working on it.

PAZU
But, my father's not a liar.
And one day I'll prove it!
I'll discover Laputa. . .
Hm?
