  • Rapunzel: [there's a rustle in the bushes. Rapunzel jumps on Flynn's back, terrified] Is it ruffians? Thugs? Have they come for me?

    Rapunzel: I promise.

    [Flynn looks at Rapunzel suspiciously]

    Rapunzel: And when I promise something, I never ever break that promise.

    [Flynn still looks suspicious]

    Rapunzel: EVER!

    Flynn Rider: All right, listen! I didn't want to have to do this, but you leave me no choice. Here comes the smolder.

    [Flynn puts on a pout, hoping to charm Rapunzel. She just looks at him sternly]

    Flynn Rider: This is kind of an off-day for me. This doesn't normally happen.

    [gives in]

    Flynn Rider: Fine! I'll take you to see the lanterns.

    Rapunzel: [gasps] Really?

    [She jumps in excitement, letting go of the chair Flynn is tied to. He falls on his face]

    Rapunzel: Oops.

    Flynn Rider: [weakly] You broke my smolder.

  • Flynn Rider: [Flynn looking at his 'Wanted' poster] 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!

    Flynn Rider: I'm sorry, me?

    [All swords are pointed at him, Flynn begins to dance and sing]

    Rapunzel: [crying] And you were mine.

  • Flynn Rider: The party lasted an entire week, and honestly, I don't remember most of it.

  • Rapunzel: [circling Flynn tied to a chair with her hair] So, what do you want with my hair? To cut it?

    Flynn Rider: What?

    Rapunzel: Sell it?

  • [first lines]

    Flynn Rider: 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.

  • Rapunzel: [sobbing]

    Flynn Rider: [clears throat] You know, I can't help but notice you seem a little at war with yourself here.

    Rapunzel: What?

    Flynn Rider: Now, I'm only picking up bits and pieces here, 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.

    [brushes Pascal off his shoulder]

    Rapunzel: [chuckles] You think?

    Flynn Rider: 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've just got to do it.

    Rapunzel: Break her heart?

    Flynn Rider: [plucks grape off vine] In half.

    Rapunzel: Crush her soul?

    Flynn Rider: [squeezes grape] Like a grape.

    Rapunzel: She would be heartbroken. You're right.

    Flynn Rider: I am, aren't I? Oh, bother.


    Flynn Rider: All right. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm letting you out of the deal.

    Rapunzel: [catches on to what he's trying to do] What?

    Flynn Rider: That's right, but don't thank me. Let's turn around and get you home. Here's your pan, here's your frog.

    [hands her pan and Pascal and puts arm around her]

    Flynn Rider: I get back my satchel and you get back a mother-daughter relationship based on mutual trust, and violà, we part ways as unlikely friends.

    Rapunzel: [pushes Flynn away] No. I am seeing those lanterns.

    Flynn Rider: Oh, come on! What is it going to take for me to get my satchel back?

    Rapunzel: [holds up frying pan] I will use this.

  • Vlad: [Points at wanted poster of Flynn Rider] Is this you?

    [Moves finger away to show a long nose on the poster]

    Flynn Rider: Oh, now they're just being mean.

  • Flynn Rider: Hey, Max!

    [throws him a bag of apples as he, Rapunzel, and Pascal row out to see the floating lanterns. Max gets a suspicious look on his face]

    Flynn Rider: What? I bought them!

    [Maximus starts chomping away happily at his apples]

    Flynn Rider: ... *most* of them!

    [Maximus starts and his eyes widen]

  • Flynn Rider: Ha! You should see your faces because you look -

    [crashes into a beam]

    Flynn Rider: ... ridiculous.

  • Flynn Rider: So! Hey can I ask you something? Is there any chance that I'm going to get super strength in my hand? Because I'm not gonna lie, that would be stupendous... Hey, you alright?

    Rapunzel: [turns around] Oh. Sorry yes, just... lost in thought I guess.

    Flynn Rider: [shrugs] 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?

  • Rapunzel: [During the 'I See The Light' number; Rapunzel sees Flynn holding two lanterns for her and approaches him] I have something for you too.

    [Rapunzel hands Flynn his satchel, Flynn looks surprised]

    Rapunzel: I should have given it to you before, but I was scared. And the thing is, I'm not scared anymore. You know what I mean?

    Flynn Rider: [Flynn gently pushes the satchel Rapunzel is holding in front of him aside and flashes a sincere smile] I'm starting to.

  • Flynn Rider: So! You're being strangely cryptic as you wrap your magic hair around my injured hand.

    Rapunzel: Sorry! Just, don't... don't freak out.

    Flynn Rider: [eyes widen in anticipation of what is about to happen]

  • Rapunzel: [after healing Flynn's hand] Please don't freak out!

    Flynn Rider: [rapid-fire] I'm not freaking out. Are you freaking out? No, I'm just very interested in your hair and the magical qualities that it possesses. How long has it been doing that, exactly?

    Rapunzel: 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.

    [She shows her lone brown lock]

    Rapunzel: A gift like that, it has to be protected. That's why Mother never let me... that's why I never left, and...

    Flynn Rider: You never left that tower. And you're still gonna go back?

    Rapunzel: No! Yes. Ugh. It's complicated. So, Eugene Fitzherbert, huh?

    Flynn Rider: Yeah, well, I'll spare you the sob story of poor orphan Eugene Fitzherbert. It's a little bit of a... It's a little bit of a downer.

    [She scoots up to him and rests her chin on her palms]

    Flynn Rider: Huh. There was this book. A book I used to read every night to all the younger kids, "The Tales of Flynnagan Rider." Swashbuckling rogue, richest man alive, not bad with the ladies, either. Not that he'd ever brag about it, of course.

    Rapunzel: Hmm. Was he a thief, too?

    Flynn Rider: 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 for a kid with nothing, I don't know. It just seemed like the better option. You can't tell anyone about this, okay? It could ruin my whole reputation.

    Rapunzel: Ah. We wouldn't want that.

    Flynn Rider: Well, a fake reputation is all a man has. Um, well I should um... I - I should get some more firewood.

    Rapunzel: Hey. For the record, I like Eugene Fitzherbert much better than Flynn Rider.

    Flynn Rider: Well, then you'd be the first. But thank you.

  • Flynn Rider: [Upon being chased by the Palace Guards, Flynn and the Stabbington Brothers reach a dead end. They are facing a cliff] All right, okay, give me a boost, and I'll pull you up.

    Stabbington Brother: [the Stabbington Brothers look at each other] Give us the satchel first.

    Flynn Rider: What? I just... I can't believe that after all we've been through together, you don't... trust me?

    [the Stabbington Brothers look at Flynn straight in the eye and crickets chirp in the background]

    Flynn Rider: Ouch.

    [Flynn hands the satchel to them]

    Stabbington Brother: [Flynn climbs up the Stabbington Brothers and reaches the top of the cliff] Now help us up, pretty boy.

    Flynn Rider: Sorry... my hands are full.

    [Flynn cockily shows them the satchel he had stolen from them while climbing up and runs off]

  • Flynn Rider: [Awakes to see Maximus staring back at him, dripping water] Well, I hope you're here to apologize.

  • Flynn Rider: Well, I've gotta say, I didn't know you had that in you back there. That was pretty impressive.

    Rapunzel: [excited] I know!


    Rapunzel: I know. So, Flynn, where are you from?

    Flynn Rider: Whoa, whoa. Sorry, blondie, I don't do backstory. However, I am becoming very interested in yours. Now, I know I'm not supposed to mention the hair.

    Rapunzel: Nope.

    Flynn Rider: Or the mother.

    Rapunzel: Unh-unh.

    Flynn Rider: Frankly, I'm too scared to ask about the frog.

    Rapunzel: Chameleon.

    Flynn Rider: Nuance. Here's my question, though. If you want to see the lanterns so badly, why haven't you gone before?

    Rapunzel: Uh, heh, well...

    [notices stones rumbling at her feet]

    Rapunzel: Uh, Flynn?

    [the guards and Maximus come charging in]

    Rapunzel: Flynn?

    Captain of the Guard: Rider!

    Flynn Rider: Run! Run!

  • Rapunzel: [trapped in a flooding cave with Flynn] This is all my fault. She was right. I never should've done this. I'm so, I'm so sorry, Flynn.

    Flynn Rider: [sighs] Eugene.

    Rapunzel: [confused] What?

    Flynn Rider: [sheepishly] My real name is Eugene Fitzherbert. Someone might as well know.

    Rapunzel: Hmm. I have magic hair that glows when I sing.

    Flynn Rider: What?

    Rapunzel: [realizing what she's saying] I have magic hair that glows when I sing!


    Rapunzel: Flower, gleam and glow. Let your power shine.

    [the water overtakes them, and her hair glows, lighting their way out]

  • Captain of the Guard: [the guards have seized Flynn, and the dungeon doors all close shut one at a time] What is this?

    Captain of the Guard: [the Captain pounds on a dungeon door] Open up!

    Short Thug: [Shorty opens the door's window] What's the password?

    Captain of the Guard: What?

    Short Thug: Nope.

    [Shorty closes the door's window]

    Captain of the Guard: Open this door!

    Short Thug: Not even close.

    Captain of the Guard: You have three seconds! One... two... three...

    [Hook-Hand Thug captures the guards one at a time]

    Captain of the Guard: Huh?

    [One of the thugs hits the Captain from behind with a frying pan, knocking him out]

    Flynn Rider: Frying pans! Who knew, right?

  • Flynn Rider: [while in the hands of the Thugs] Not the nose, not the nose, not the nose!

    Rapunzel: [Rapunzel wraps her hair around a decorative branch, and lets go, hitting Hook Hand on the head] Put him down! 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 Hand Thug: [Hook Hand approaches Rapunzel] I had a dream once.

    Hook Hand Thug: [Hook Hand throws his axe at the wall, and the man in the corner starts playing his concertina] 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.

    Hook Hand Thug: [Hook Hand starts playing the piano] Can't you see me on the stage, performing Mozart, Tickling the ivories 'till they gleam? Yep, I'd rather be called deadly, for my killer show tune medley.

    Hook Hand Thug: Thank you!

    [He slides his hand across the piano keys]

    Hook Hand Thug: 'Cause way down deep inside I've got a dream!

    Chorus: [singing] He's got a dream, he's got a dream.

    Hook Hand Thug: See, I ain't as cruel and vicious as I seem, though I feel like breaking femurs, you can count me with the dreamers, for like everybody else, I've got a dream!

  • Hook Hand Thug: What about you?

    Flynn Rider: I'm sorry, me?

    Big Nose Thug: What's your dream?

    Flynn Rider: No, no, no. Sorry boys, I don't sing.

    Flynn Rider: [Flynn starts singing and dancing after the thugs hold swords in his face] 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.

    Rapunzel: [sings] I've got a dream,

    Chorus: [sung] She's got a dream,

    Rapunzel: [sings] I've got a dream,

    Chorus: [sung] She's got a dream,

    Rapunzel: [sings] I just want to see the floating lanterns gleam, / And with every passing hour, I'm so glad I left my tower, / Like all you lovely folks, I've got a dream.

    Chorus: She's got a dream, he's got a dream, / I've got a dream, he's got a dream, / So our differences ain't really that extreme, / We're one big team...

    Big Nose Thug: Call us brutal,

    Chorus: Say sadistic,

    Big Nose Thug: And grotesquely optimistic,

    Chorus: 'Cause way down deep inside, we've got a dream.

    Chorus: [individually] I've got a dream, I've got a dream, I've got a dream, I've got a dream,

    Chorus: Yes, way down deep inside, I've got a dream!

    [the thugs say 'Yeah!' and cheer as the song ends]
