    [Moana sees that Heihei has swallowed the stone, which is causing a bulge in his neck]

  • Maui: [talking about his past] I wasn't born a demi-god. I had human parents. They took one look and they decided... that they did not want me. So, they threw me into the ocean like I was nothing. Somehow, I was rescued by the Gods. They gave me the fish hook. They made me...


    Maui: ..."Maui".

    [talking normally]

    Maui: So... Back to the humans I went. I gave them everything. Islands, fire and coconuts. Heh, everything they can never get enough of.

    Maui: [solemnly] It was *never* enough.

    Maui: Nun-ya business.

    [sits down besides Tala; calmly]

    Moana: Why did we stop.

    Gramma Tala: *Maui.* When Maui stole from the mother island, darkness fell, Te Ka awoke, Monsters lurked, fishing boats stopped coming back. To protect our people, the ancient chiefs buried our past to be forgotten. Years have past and we have forgotten who we are. And now, the darkness has spread, taking our fish, draining life from island... after island!

    [Tala points a place on the island where there is a large patch of dead vegetation; Moana gasps]

    [Tala opens her abalone locket and placing a jade green stone in Moana's hand; the Heart of Te Fiti]

    Gramma Tala: ...And restore the Heart of Te Fiti! I was there that day... the Ocean had chosen you.

  • Moana: [on Maui's damaged fish hook] We can fix it.

    Maui: It was made by the Gods. You can't fix it!

    Moana: Next time, we'll be more careful. Te Ka was stuck on the barrier islands. It's lava. It can't go in the water. We can find another way around.

    Maui: I'm not going back.

    Moana: What? We still have to restore the heart.

    Maui: My hook is cracked. One more hit and it's over.

    Moana: Maui, you have to restore the heart!

    Maui: Without my hook, I am nothing.

    Moana: That's not true...

    Maui: [shouting] WITHOUT MY HOOK, I AM *NOTHING*!

    [Moana draws back in shock. Maui drops the heart into Moana's boat, and Moana picks it back up]

    Moana: We're only here 'cause you stole the heart in the first place.

    Maui: No. We're here because the ocean told you you were special and you believed it.

    Moana: [gathering resolve] I am Moana of Motonui. You will board my boat...

    Maui: Goodbye, Moana.

    Moana: ...sail across the sea...

    Maui: I'm not killing myself so you can prove something you're not.

    Moana: ...and restore the heart of Te Fiti. The ocean chose me!

    Maui: [bitterly] It chose wrong.
