MOOSKA
Did you sleep well?

SHEETA
Where's Pazu?!
I want to see Pazu!!

MOOSKA
Don't you like fashionable clothes?
Don't worry about him.
His head is harder than mine.
Look -- there's something I want you to see.
Go in.

SHEETA
This. . .

MOOSKA
It has terrible destructive power.
It's a robot soldier.

MOOSKA
If this fellow hadn't come falling out of the sky,
nobody would have believed in Laputa. . .

MOOSKA
This wasn't made anywhere on the Earth's surface.
It has power almost beyond imagining.
And this body -- metallic?
Ceramic?
Our scientists still don't know for sure.

MOOSKA
Look at this. . .
Don't be afraid.
It's been inactive since we found it.
Here.
The same sign that was on the old fireplace in your home.
And on this necklace, eh. . .?

MOOSKA
This stone won't work except in your hands.
It will protect you
until the day you want to return to Laputa.
Then it will show you the way.

SHEETA
But, I don't know anything!!

SHEETA
If you want the stone, take it!!

SHEETA
Leave us alone. . .

MOOSKA
You think Laputa is kind of a "Treasure Island", don't you?
Laputa flies because of a formerly impressive scientific power.
It controlled the whole surface of the Earth
in an empire of fear!!

MOOSKA
If it's still roving the sky,
is it not a danger to peace?
I think you understand.
I'd like you to help me.
Laputa's location is in the Levistone.
You must know an incantation or something.

SHEETA
I really don't know. . .
Let me see Pazu. . .

MOOSKA
I don't like to be violent,
but that young man's fate is in your hands.
If you help us, I'll set him free,
Lusheeta Toelle Ul Laputa.

SHEETA
How do you know that . . .

MOOSKA
``Ul'' means ``King'' in Laputan.
``Toelle'' is ``True''.
You are the rightful successor of the Laputan royal family --
Queen Lusheeta.

PAZU
Ouch. . .

GUARD
Come out.

PAZU
Sheeta!

SHEETA
Pazu -- are you hurt?

PAZU
I'm OK.
But you!?
They haven't done anything terrible to you, have they?!

MOOSKA
Pazu -- I was quite mistaken about you.
Please forgive me.
I didn't know that you were fighting to protect her from pirates.

PAZU
Sheeta -- what. . .

SHEETA
Pazu -- I beg you.
Forget about Laputa.

PAZU
What!?

MOOSKA
The army will investigate Laputa in secret with Sheeta's help.
I understand how you feel,
but I'd like you to keep ``hands off'' for a while.

PAZU
Sheeta -- is this true?
But. . .

SHEETA
Forgive me for troubling you so many ways.
Thank you.
I'll never forget you, Pazu. . .

PAZU
It can't be -- Sheeta -- didn't you promise?

SHEETA
Goodbye.

PAZU
Sheeta!!
Wait, Sheeta!!

MOOSKA
If you want to be a man, too, then listen to reason!!

PAZU
SHEETA!!

MOOSKA
This is small, but it's heartfelt.
Take it and go.

MOOSKA
Please remember the words to make this stone work. . .
If you keep your promise, you'll be set free, too. . .

SHEETA
Pazu. . .

MADGE
Shoo -- Shoo!
Mama -- it's Pazu.
Pazu came back!!

OKAMI
Pazu -- I've been worried.
Nobody's seen you since yesterday.
What happened to that little girl?

PAZU
She's all right.

OKAMI
Eh?!
Pazu!!

PAZU
Let me go -- what are you doing!

DORA
Only staying for a bit, my boy.

PAZU
Get out!!
This is my house!!

DORA
Big talk for a brat who can't even protect a little girl by himself. . .

PAZU
What?

HENRI
Look at how much money he's got!!

DORA
Oh, dear -- you sold the girl for money?

PAZU
You're wrong!!
I wouldn't do a thing like that!!

DORA
I don't suppose you'll say how you got the money?

PAZU
Sheeta told me to take it!!
So, I . . .

DORA
So you grew timid, and came back shamelessly?
And you still call yourself a man!?!
Eh??

PAZU
Don't brag!!
Weren't you trying to get hold of Sheeta?!

DORA
Of course.
Pirates try to get treasure, and where's the harm!!
They're strange fellows.
Why do they keep kidnapping the girl?

DORA
Do you think they'll let the girl live?
Idiot!
She was forced to settle with them to save you!

CHARLES
You understand well, don't you, Mama?

DORA
I haven't been a woman for 50 years for appearance's sake.

DORA
Don't you see?
She saved your life.
True love, just like my young heart.
And you don't even shed a tear.
All of you -- if you marry, find a nice girl like her.

LOUIE
You mean like you, Mama?

DORA
Good -- still using the old code. . .!
They've summoned a warship.

DORA
They're leaving with the girl.
If we don't hurry, we'll lose it!
Move your asses!
Let's go!

PAZU
Are you going to go kidnap Sheeta?

HENRI
The girl is nothing -- it's the Levistone!

PAZU
But, the Levistone is useless by itself !!
If Sheeta doesn't hold that stone, it doesn't work!!

PAZU
Auntie -- won't you take me with you?!
I want to save Sheeta.

DORA
If you go, you'll have to take care of yourself.

PAZU
I will.
If I have the strength, I'll protect her. The treasure of Laputa is worth it! Please. . .

LOUIE
You're making her cry. . .

DORA
Shut up!!

LOUIE
Y -- yes. ..

DORA
We don't know if the girl will listen to us, do we?
We can't go there twice.

PAZU
Understood.

DORA
You'll follow orders?

PAZU
Yes!

DORA Don't take more than 40 seconds.

PAZU
All of you -- take care.

DORA
Fasten yourself onto me with this belt.
You, wait on the ship.

GENERAL
An excellent ship.
Mooska -- has the girl confessed?

MOOSKA
I need a little more time.

GENERAL
There'll be time enough in the air.
We leave at down, with the girl.

DORA
Hurry up!
It'll soon be light!

GRANDMA
Aw, that's too bad. Sheeta, I want to tell you something good.
A spell for times of trouble.

YOUNG SHEETA
A spell?

GRANDMA That's right.
Very old, secret words.
``Leete Latobarita Uruth Ariaroth Bal Netoreel.''

YOUNG SHEETA
Leete. . . La. . .?

GRANDMA It's to save us.
It is a wish -- ``Light, be reborn.''
Leete Latobarita Uruth Ariaroth Bal Netoreel.

SHEETA
Leete Latobarita Uruth Ariaroth Bal Netoreel. . .

SHEETA
Ah?!!

MOOSKA
Excellent!!
It was in an old manuscript -- this light is a holy light. . .

SHEETA
Holy light. . .?

MOOSKA
What kind of incantation is it?
Tell me those words.

GUARDS
Hey?!

GUARD
It moved!!
Yah!!
The robot -- the robot's alive.
Hello?!!

GUARDS
Save us!
It's crazy!

GUARDS
It's moving.
Put out the fire.
It's the robot!!

MOOSKA
The robot! ?

MOOSKA
Where does it think it's going?! ?

VOICE
Hurry!!

MOOSKA
Amazing!!
I see!!

SHEETA
Ah!!

MOOSKA
It's the light!!
The seal on the robot was broken by the holy light.
It has opened the way to Laputa!!
Come here!!

SHEETA
NO!!

MOOSKA
It can fly?!

DARK GLASSES
It's crazy!!

SHEETA
It's piercing the sky. . .

MOOSKA
Laputa is in the same direction as that light.
Hurry up!

GENERAL
Use the blasting powder?!
Idiot -- do you want to blow up this fort?!

GENERAL
Hm!?
Hello?
Hello??
Hey -- what's wrong!!

DARK GLASSES 1
Good.

DARK GLASSES 2
It's connected.

MOOSKA
This is Captain Mooska.
Because of the robot,
the communications circuits have been destroyed.
Take emergency action.
I'm temporarily taking command.

MOOSKA
The robot is trying to get to the girl on the East tower.
Kill it the moment it's shown itself.
Leave the fuses off the shells.
Don't hurt the girl.

GUARD
Hurry!
Hurry!

SOLDIER
Fire!

VOICES
We did it!
Forward!
Hurry!

SOLDIER 1
Ha, ha -- it's flattened.

SOLDIER 2
Amazing. . .

SOLDIER 3
Get the girl.

SOLDIER 4
Is she dead?

SOLDIER 5
Hey -- get up.

SHEETA
Ah. . .

SOLDIER 6
She's just fainted.
Hey, stand up.

SOLDIER
It -- it moved. ..

SOLDIERS
Wah!
Run!

PAZU
Ah!!

DORA
What's the matter -- looks just like a war.

PAZU
Let's go, Auntie!

DORA
Call me Captain!!
Charles, fly a little lower.

SHEETA
Stop!!
Stop, already!!

SHEETA
Please!!

LOUIE
Mama -- the Goliath is moving!

DORA
If they go, we'll end up flying right into their guns.

PAZU
There she is -- it's Sheeta.

DORA
What?
Where?!

PAZU
Straight ahead!
She's on the top of the small tower!!

DORA
The girl is brave!!
You all, cover us!!

PAZU
Sheeta!!
Sheeta, come on!!

SHEETA
Pazu!!

PAZU
Auntie, a little closer!!
Wah!

Auntie!!

It's our last chance.
Grab her as we pass!!

PAZU
Yes.

SHEETA
Pazu!!

PAZU
Great!!

DORA
Go!!

MOOSKA
Get out of the way!!
Damn!!

PAZU
Sheeta!!

MOOSKA
Shit.
What is the Goliath doing?
Ah!!

MOOSKA
A smoke screen. . .?

GENERAL
Mooska -- what happened to the robot?!

MOOSKA
The robot was destroyed.
The girl has escaped.

GENERAL
What!?
Look sharp -- put out the fires!!
Form search parties!!

MOOSKA
Don't lose the holy light.

MOOSKA
Still showing the direction of Laputa. . .
Inform the General,
and we will depart for Laputa as planned.
