LOUIE
Nice, isn't she. . .

CHARLES
Do you believe it. . .?
That's the girl who's just like Mama.

DORA
Here's your valley.
Glad to be rid of such a useless pair. . .

PAZU
Auntie, please let us ride on your ship.

DORA
Call me Captain!!
You don't have the Levistone.
Why should I let you on board?

PAZU
We'll repay you.

SHEETA
I certainly want to see the real Laputa with my own eyes.

DORA
Hmph.
You're not greedy enough to ride a pirate ship. . .

LOUIE
Mama -- can she come along?

DORA
If there's any funny business, I'll throw you into the sea!!

PAZU
Yes!

LOUIE
We did it!
A live-in cook.

HENRI
A dishwasher!!

CHARLES
A potato peeler!!

ALL
Yeah!
Whew!

CHARLES
Can you make pudding?

SHEETA
Yes. . .

LOUIE
I like mincemeat pie!!

HENRI
And me. . .
Well, now, let me see. . .
I'll eat anything!!

DORA
Behave yourselves!
Really!
Still just children.

DORA
Careful!!

PAZU
It's canvas!!

PAZU
This ship is made of canvas!!

DORA
Don't damage it.

PAZU
WAH!

LOUIE
Don't loiter!!
It's cramped.

SHEETA
Wah!!

DORA
Hurry up -- this way!!
I hate shirkers!!

LOUIE
You -- this way.

PAZU
Wah!!

SHEETA
Pazu!!

DORA
He's fine.
Come on!!

LOUIE
You aren't here to play!!

PAZU
It's an amazing engine.

LOUIE
Where'd he go?
Uncle!
Uncle!!
Uncle -- hey, it's the assistant you wanted.

ENGINEER
Not so loud.
I can hear you.

LOUIE
He's worse than Mama.
Be careful.

ENGINEER
It's so cramped, my hand won't go in.

PAZU
It's this packing, isn't it. ..

ENGINEER
Your name?

PAZU
Pazu.

DORA
The Levistone pointed due east, didn't it?

SHEETA
>From the tower where I was, I could see the sun rise.
Right now is the next mowing season. . .

SHEETA
so the sunrise is a little south of true east.
The sun rose just to the left of the hills.
The Levistone light crossed the lift tip of the sun's edge.

DORA
A good reply.
How're things up there?

RADIO OPERATOR
Neither yea nor nay.

DORA
So, they're jamming the radio to hide their whereabouts, are they?!

HENRI
Mama, the Goliath's moving pretty fast!
What'll we do?

DORA
We'll be on their windward side.
If we use the trade winds. . .
20,000 feet and ride the jet stream. . .

DORA
With wind speed 10. . .
We'll do it somehow.
Everybody, listen up!!
We are setting course for Laputa.
Our ship will now commence top-speed pursuit!!

DORA
Using the wind, we should be able to make contact tomorrow!!
And I'll give 10 gold pieces to the first spotter!!

CHARLES
10 gold pieces. . .

DORA
Laputa is some sort of flying island.
There's probably enough treasure for everybody.
So!
Everybody. . .
GET TO WORK!!

ENGINEER
Now!!

DORA
Course 98. Velocity 40!!

DORA
There's nothing in that size!!
Put this on!!

DORA
Here's your post.

LOUIE
Good!!

DORA
Full meals, twice a day.
Economize on the water.

MEN
WAH!!

DORA
Fools!!
Get back to work!!

SHEETA
Come in.
Sorry, there's no dinner yet.

LOUIE
Heh, heh, heh. . .

SHEETA
It's my first airship kitchen. . .
Do you want something?

LOUIE
Well . . .

SHEETA
Yes?

LOUIE
No, no -- I have some spare time, so I thought I'd be of some help. . .

SHEETA
Well, thank you.
Would you do that washing?

LOUIE
Easy. . .
Oop!

LOUIE
Hey, you said your back hurt. . .

CHARLES
I had some spare time and thought I'd help. . .

MAN 1
Out of the way.

CHARLES
Don't shirk. ..

MAN 2
Don't get in the way.

MAN 3
Shit -- what hurt your back?

HENRI
Hey -- can I be of some help. . .!?!

ENGINEER
So, you were scared too, eh?
And they have the Goliath to help them. . .
Pretty hopeless. . .

DORA
It's the island of Laputa, so it's no wonder.

ENGINEER
Heh, heh. . .
Certainly they're good kids, those two.. .

DORA
What do you want me to say, you stupid old man?

ENGINEER
Nothing.
But you should show more respect. . .

DORA
What!!

ENGINEER
No. . .
Hey. . .
Checkmate, isn't it?

MEN
It's good!
Yum!
Delicious.

SHEETA
Well. . .
If anyone wants seconds. . .

MAN
Um. . .

SHEETA
Yes.

VOICES
Seconds!!
Seconds!!
Seconds!!

LOUIE
Hey!!
Get up.
It's arrival time.
Take this with you -- it's cold!!

PAZU
The lookout. . .?

LOUIE
Yes . . .
Phew -- cold!!
You're up top.

PAZU
Yes.

PAZU
I'm second shift.

LOOKOUT
Thanks.

PAZU
Sheeta!!

SHEETA
Wow -- I was scared!!
Wow!!

SHEETA
Pretty. . .

PAZU
Sheeta. . .
Get in.

DORA
Can't sleep. . .

SHEETA
Yes. . .
It's warm. . .

PAZU
Sheeta, look behind.

SHEETA
Yes . . .

SHEETA
Pazu. . .

PAZU
Hm?

SHEETA
I'm scared beyond words. . .
The truth is, I don't want to go to Laputa at all.
And I hope the Goliath beats us to it.

PAZU
What?!

SHEETA
Uh-huh. . .
There are just too many strange and powerful. . .
Well . . .

PAZU
You mean that incident with the robot. . .
It was sad, wasn't it?

SHEETA
Yes. . .
And it happened because of an incantation taught to me by my grandmother. . .
I learned many other incantations, too.
To find things, and to cure illness . . .
And words I must absolutely never use.

PAZU
Words you must absolutely never use. . .?

SHEETA
Spells of destruction, spells of power. . .
She said I must know the bad words, too, but never use them.

SHEETA
When I was taught, I couldn't sleep for fear. . .
And it all had to do with the stone.
It was always hidden in the fireplace, and except at weddings, never used. . .

SHEETA
Mother, and Grandmother, and Grandmother's Grandmother -- everybody feared it!
I wish it had never existed!

PAZU
You're wrong.
Thanks to that stone, I met you.
And thanks to that stone, Laputa won't be lost.
All our progress with flying machines, and no one's seen it but my father.

PAZU
Yet, what'll we do if Laputa is really an island of terror?
It must now fall into the hands of Mooska and the others. . .
Besides. . .
If we run away now, we'll be followed forever.

SHEETA
But, I don't want to make you a pirate for my sake. . .

PAZU
I won't become a pirate.

PAZU
Even Dora understands.
I think she's really a good person. . .
When this is all over, surely she'll take you back to Gondoa . . .
I want to see it. . .
The old house where Sheeta was born, and the yaks. . .

SHEETA
Oh, Pazu. . .
PAZU
What's that!!
Underneath the ship -- hey, there!!

PAZU
It's the Goliath -- it's right below us!!

DORA
Hard to starboard!

GENERAL
Mooska -- why aren't we chasing them?
They'll get away!

MOOSKA
It's no good, in the clouds.
At any rate, they can't run far!

MOOSKA
We're on course and everything's going smoothly.

DORA
The course was more north.
Pazu -- there's no time -- listen up!!
If we don't shake off the Goliath, we're finished!
You have good eyes; I want you to stay in the lookout.

PAZU
What should I do?

DORA
That lookout post will turn into a kite.
There should be a handle inside.

PAZU
Found it!!

DORA
Turn it clockwise to hook up.
Turn the upper handle to open the wings.

DORA
When it's open, don't stretch the wire.
Remember, steer with your body!!

DORA
Is Sheeta up there?

SHEETA
Yes!!

DORA
You come back down!!

SHEETA
Why?

DORA
``WHY''??
You're a little girl!!

SHEETA
Hey, Auntie, you're a girl, too!!
Besides, I'm mountain-bred -- I have good eyes, too.

SHEETA
(Please!) Pazu thinks so, too!!

DORA
If you go up, don't use the voice tube.
There's an internal telephone.

SHEETA
Is this the phone you were talking about, Auntie?

CHARLES
Wow. . .

PAZU
Yes -- we'll try.
Let us up!!

DORA
Go!!

SHEETA
I can't see it. . .

PAZU
They've dived into the clouds.

DORA
Don't be careless.
They may not be in front of us.

PAZU
Yes!!

SHEETA
Yah!!

PAZU
Hang on tight!!

DORA
What's wrong!!
PAZU
It's turbulence -- we're OK!!

PAZU
Just a little stirred up!!
Yes!!
I'll continue the watch.
Scared?

SHEETA
Yes.

PAZU
I've gotten the hang of it now.
It's a little stormy.
Sheeta, get the string out of my bag.

SHEETA
Yes.

PAZU
Tie us together with it.. .

SHEETA
Sure!!

LOUIE
The barometer is falling rapidly, Mama. . .

DORA
Unlucky, eh?
What a time to get stormy.
How long until sunrise?

CHARLES
One hour!!

PAZU
Dawn. . .

SHEETA
Pazu, it's strange, the sunrise is coming from the side. . .

PAZU
I see!!
We must be going north, not east!
Bridge!!

DORA
Eh!?
Go north, you say!?

CHARLES
The compass is pointing north!!

DORA
The wind has changed.
We're off course!

SHEETA
Look -- there!!

DORA
What's the matter -- the Goliath?!

PAZU
The clouds.
They're huge. . .

DORA
The clouds! ?

SHEETA
They're coming this way!!

PAZU
It's a sky castle. . .

DORA
THAT'S a low pressure center!!
The ship won't stand the wind.
Full power!
Due north!

PAZU
It's coming closer!

DORA
All right!
We're trying!
PAZU
WAH!!

CHARLES
The rudder won't move!!

DORA
Always the damn power -- what's the problem!!

ENGINEER
Dora -- the engine will burn up.

DORA
I don't want to hear any complaints!
Just do it!!

DORA
Get out of the clouds!!

PAZU
Sheeta -- the ocean!!

SHEETA
Eh??

DORA
The Dragon's Nest!!

PAZU
The Dragon's Nest!?
This. . .?

PAZU
The wind there is blowing in the wrong direction, just like Father said.

DORA
It's a wall of wind!

CHARLES
Mama, we can't get out!

DORA
We'll be sucked in.
The wind just won't quit!

PAZU
Bridge!! Laputa is in there!!

DORA
What!?

PAZU
Father saw Laputa in the Dragon's Nest!!

DORA
You're crazy!!
If we go in, we'll be shaken to pieces!!

SHEETA
Pazu -- there!!

PAZU
Ah!!

DORA
At a damn busy time like this!!

PAZU
Let's go, Auntie!!
It's the way Father took, and he came back!

DORA
ALL RIGHT!!
Into the Dragon's Nest!!

PAZU
Ah!!

GENERAL
Yeah, we did it!!

MAN
Our ship is in danger, too.
We must retreat.

MOOSKA
No!
Carry on.

MAN
Hunh?!

MOOSKA
The light always indicates the center of the whirling clouds.
Laputa is inside the storm.
Steady as she goes.
There is certainly an entrance.

PAZU
Hang on, Sheeta!!

SHEETA
Yes!!

PAZU
(Father!)

PAZU
Sheeta. . . Sheeta!
Are you OK?

PAZU
Look. . .

SHEETA
Laputa . . .?

PAZU
Yes.
Oh -- sorry!!

SHEETA
Wait. . .
Still pretty tightly knotted.
My hands are shaking.. .

PAZU
We did it!!

BOTH
WAH!!
Ha, ha, ha . . .

PAZU
There are birds. . .

SHEETA
What do you suppose happened to everyone. . .?

PAZU
It's coming to meet you, Sheeta. . .

SHEETA
But I don't have the Levistone . . .

PAZU
A knife will free us. . .

PAZU
What are you doing!!

SHEETA
Wait!
Please, don't break that.
Without that, we can't go back.

SHEETA
Ah!!

SHEETA
It's a Hitaki nest!!

PAZU
For this . . .! ?

SHEETA
Oh, good, the eggs aren't broken . . .

PAZU
Not afraid, are they. . .

SHEETA
Let's follow.

PAZU
Do you know the words?

SHEETA
Don't worry about that!
