GENERAL
Excellent, Mooska. . .
You're a hero.
Now here is your reward.

MOOSKA
Ha, ha, ha . . .

MOOSKA
Your stupid face made a perfect mask of disgust.
Ow!!
Oh -- you!!

SHEETA
Everyone -- run!!

SHEETA
Ah!

MOOSKA
? Die!!

MOOSKA
Ha, ha, ha. . .

SOLDIER
Ah -- it's coming out!!

DORA
Those fools!!

LOUIE
It's full of them. . .

DORA
Everybody -- RUN!!

LOUIE
Y -- yes!

DORA
Check the flapters!!

CHARLES
Mama -- let's fly!!

LOUIE
Hurry, let's get away!!

DORA
Be quiet.
Don't raise your voice.

DORA
Why are those two loitering behind!!
They'll end up falling.

MOOSKA
I hope you don't anger me again.

MOOSKA
Because it looks like we'll be spending some time together.
I hope they're not trying to get away.

MOOSKA
They really intend to fight me.

PAZU
A robot.

PAZU
Sheeta!!

SHEETA
Ah. . .

MOOSKA
Excellent!!
Don't you think it's the best show?
Oh!!
Look!!
The people are like garbage.

MOOSKA
What are you doing!!

MOOSKA
Shit . . .

MOOSKA
Give it back -- be a good girl.
Come on.

SHEETA
Please -- open up!!

MOOSKA
Ha, ha, ha. . .
Where do you think you're going, hm?

SHEETA
Open up!!

PAZU'S VOICE
Sheeta---

SHEETA
Pazu. . .!
PAZU!!

PAZU
Sheeta . . .

SHEETA
Pazu!!

PAZU
Sheeta!!
Sheeta!!
Sheeta!!

SHEETA
Ah, Pazu!!

PAZU
I'm coming now.
Shit. . .
Get down!!

SHEETA
Hurry, take this!!
It's Mooska -- hurry!!

SHEETA
Throw it in the ocean. . .

PAZU
Sheeta!!

MOOSKA
That stone you have is important.
I'll trade the girl's life for it.

MOOSKA
Get up!!
The game of tag is over.

MOOSKA
The old throne room is not very splendid, is it?
Come here!!

SHEETA
You say this is the throne room?
Then here is a grave.
Yours and mine.
SHEETA
The country was destroyed and a King like you survived.
What a joke!
I won't give you the stone.
You can't leave here without killing me.

SHEETA
Now, why was Laputa destroyed?
I know perfectly well.
There's a song in the valley of Gondoa:
``We need roots in the Earth;
``Let's live with the wind;
``With seeds, make fat the winter;
``With the birds, let's sing of spring.''

SHEETA
No matter how many weapons you may have,
or how many poor robots you use,
you can't live separated from the ground.

MOOSKA
Laputa will not be destroyed.
However many times, it will be reborn.

MOOSKA
The power of Laputa is the dream of the human race.
Your ears will be next.
On your knees!!
Beg for your life!
Get the stone back from the brat!!

PAZU
Wait!!
The stone is hidden.
If you shoot Sheeta, I won't return it.

SHEETA
Pazu -- don't come here, it's no use.
He's going to kill us, no matter what.

MOOSKA
Brat -- the girl's life for the stone.
Tell me where it is!
Or are you just going to scare me with that cannon?

PAZU
I want to talk with Sheeta, alone.

SHEETA
It's no use -- throw away the stone and run!!

MOOSKA
I'll wait three minutes.

SHEETA
Pazu!!

PAZU
Sheeta -- calm down.
Listen closely.
Tell me those words.
I'll say them, too.
It's in my left hand.

PAZU
I've freed Auntie and the others.

MOOSKA
It's time!!
Let's hear your answer.

PAZU AND SHEETA
Balse!!

MOOSKA
Ah. . .
My eyes. . .
My eyes!
My eyes. . .
My eyes. . .

CHARLES
Mama -- it's collapsing!!

DORA
It can't be helped -- launch!!
Hurry!!

HENRI
Quickly!!

HENRI
Mama, look!!
The bottom is falling off.

LOUIE
Sheeta was a good girl. . .

DORA
She used the word of destruction.
Those children protected Laputa from the idiots.

CHARLES
The collapse has stopped!!

LOUIE
It's the Levistone!!
What exceptional luck!

MAN
It's going up.

DORA
The tree!
It may have them!
Follow it.

LOUIE
That's crazy.

PAZU
Sheeta . . .

SHEETA
Pazu. . .
Wow. . .

PAZU
The tree roots protected us.

PAZU
We'll break the wire.
Let's go.

SHEETA
Yes.

DORA
What are you doing?
We're supposed to be going up!

HENRI
We can't like this!

LOUIE
It's Sheeta!!

VOICES
It's Sheeta!!

LOUIE
They're alive.

VOICE
It's the apprentice.

VOICES
Hey!! Yoo-hoo!!

SHEETA
Auntie!!

DORA
Safely alive, aren't you.

PAZU
Everyone's OK!!

ENGINEER
Everyone's OK but my poor, tattered ship. . .

DORA
Don't be maudlin.
We can build a pretty good ship!!
Poor thing -- pretty cruel way to get a haircut. . .

SHEETA
Auntie -- ouch!

DORA
Oh, sorry.
Isn't it pitiful?
Worrying terribly, full of these.

CHARLES
At any rate, in our spare time. . .
