Samurai Jack S4E4 Script

Episode XLIII (2003)

AKU: Long ago, in a distant land, I, Aku, the shape-shifting master of darkness, unleashed an unspeakable evil.

But a foolish samurai warrior wielding a magic sword, stepped forth to oppose me.

(SWORD CLANGING)

Before the final blow was struck, I tore open a portal in time and flung him into the future, where my evil is law.

Now the fool seeks to return to the past and undo the future that is Aku.

(MOANING)

(COUGHING)

No, I will not fight you today.

(COUGHING)

Oh!

I don't feel good.

(WOLF HOWLING)

(COUGHING)


(GASPS)

JACK: Father?

Mother?

(FIRE CRACKLING)

Not too smart, is it?

Going out into a blizzard With just a funny robe and sandals?

You could catch your death out there or, worse.

The storm should pass by tomorrow.

You can rest here till then.

Here. This will give you your strength back.

Thank you.

You are very kind.

It's okay. Just be careful next time.

That weather out there is no joke.

We've been mining up here for the last five years.

We've managed to mine these three priceless stones.

One more, we can retire and leave this blasted mountain.

Will you stop with the showing off?

Pretty soon, the whole mountain's gonna know about those.

No need to worry, my friends.

Your secret is safe with me.

I owe you both my life.

What's with your hand there?

I don't know.

It will not come off.

MAN 1: You better get some rest.

MAN 2: You sure you don't need anything?

No. Thank you.

I will be fine.

Brave kid.

Not too smart, but, brave.

It is still very cold.

MAN: Help!

Help!

(WEAKLY) Help...

He-elp.

JACK: Can I help you?

Boy, am I glad to see you.

I thought I'd never get out of here.

There I was, just checking out the view, and it is beautiful, mind you, when suddenly the floor started to give way beneath me.

Luckily, this rope... (SCREAMING)

Are you okay?

I'm fine. How are you doing?

I am sorry. Must have slipped.

No problem. Don't even worry about it.

But, if you could pull me up soon, that would be good, too.

And why should I?

What's in it for me, huh?

Uh, I'll give you anything you want.

Just don't drop me, please.

Drop you? I will save you.

Huh?

Okay, so what do you want?

JACK: I do not want anything.

Except everything you've got.

I will accept nothing for only doing what is right.

You're gonna pay, or, I shall drop you.

No, do not worry. I will pull you up.

Come on. Give me some money.

Please, we must hurry before the rope breaks.

Uh, you know, never mind.

I... I think I'm just going to stay here for a while and check out the view some more.

Are you certain?

Oh, um, yeah.

JACK: Very well, if that is what you desire.

But, it's pretty stupid, if you ask me.

(SNIFFS)

(GROANS)

(COUGHING)

(GROANS)


(BARKING)

(CROWS CAWING)

(BEEPING)

I think you owe me an apology.

I said, you owe me an apology.

(BEEPING)

I'm gonna give you until the count of three.

(BEEPING)

One.

Two.

(BEEPING)

Three.

(ZAPPING)

(COUGHING)

(BREATHING HEAVILY)

(GROANS)

I feel so...

I feel...

(IN AKU'S VOICE) ...stronger!

Aah! No! No!

This cannot be happening.

Oh, yes, it can.

(GROANS)

Must keep control.

Yeah! Got to get a grip.

(GROANS)

(GRUNTS)

Need help.

The monks. I...

I've got to find those accursed monks.

(GROANING)

JACK: Must find...


(FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING)

Yes?

I am Jack.

Oh, yes.

We have been awaiting your arrival for many days.

The master was worried an ill fate had befallen you.

Please, this way.


Master Ning, I am sorry to disturb your meditation, But, Jack, he has arrived.

Ah, yes, the wandering Samurai.

We were worried about you.

We began to wonder if your quest had ended.

But, we are glad you are with us now.

Again, we extend our invitation.

We believe the pool of convergence may be of use to you.

All factors of time and existence converge here and form an inter-dimensional nexus, which we gaze into to study the infinite facets of reality.

We have never attempted a physical journey, but, with proper conditioning, you would be able to step into this crossroads and find your way home.

(GRUNTS)

You seem weary, brother Jack.

Come.

The purity of our spring will refresh you.

Come, come.

Tell us of your quest.

What is it you seek?

I...

I seek...

I seek to foil the Samurai, to destroy his dream of returning home, and to destroy all who stand in my way.

No!

(LAUGHING SINISTERLY)

Brothers, the pool!

Huh?

Ah, yes, slaughtering pathetic whelps is the perfect way to loosen up before I really

desecrate things.

(SWORD CLANGING)


Aah!

Aah!

(LAUGHING SINISTERLY)

(MONKS YELLING)

(ALL GRUNT)

(GROANING)

(SWORD CLANGING)

(YELLS)

Stop!

(LAUGHING SINISTERLY)

Huh?

(SCREAMING)

(MOANING)

Forgive me.

Be strong, my son.

You are gravely ill.

Aku's very essence is creeping through your veins, possessing your body, poisoning your mind.

It means to devour your spirit.

Please...

Help me.

I beg you.

(MONKS CHANTING)

We are doing what we can to stave the illness of the flesh, but we can only slow the sickness.

You have been infected by pure evil, which can only be purged by the light of good, the good within you.

I...

I cannot.

You must help me.

MASTER NING: I am sorry.

This is a sickness only you can truly cure.

No.

You must. You...

You worthless, wrinkled grub.

I'll have you for dinner, you worm.

I'll eat every last monk in this hole.

I'll devour you all just as I have consumed the Samurai.

(LAUGHING SINISTERLY)

JACK: Cannot fight it.

Not alone.

Cannot do it alone.

MOTHER: You are not alone, my son.

We are always with you here...

FATHER: Here in your heart...

The place we will make our stand against this evil.

But, I was not there for you.

Nonsense.

Aku's victories are not your failures.

The struggle against Aku is arduous, and none have fought more bravely than you, my son.

MOTHER: You have won many victories, rekindling hope in the hearts of those you have protected.

Each sends their blessing.

FATHER: Each blessing, a stone to fortify this land.

Your castle is strong, my son.

MOTHER: Your allies are many.

Wield what lies within and reclaim what is yours.

Break this siege of darkness.

(LIGHTNING ZAPPING)

(HEROIC INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC PLAYING)


(SINISTER LAUGHTER)

(MONSTERS YELLING)

(SCREAMING)

(SCREAMING)

(SIZZLING)

(SLURPS)

Master Ning, how can you forgive one who has raised his sword against you and defiled your sanctuary so?

Although, the pool of convergence is destroyed, the Nexus still exists.

In time, we will reconstruct the gateway.

As for you, had you not defeated the demon within, it surely would have destroyed us all.

We owe you our lives.

My son, all debts are paid.

All, but one.

I said, get off your fat tochis and get the ladder, you lazy bum.

Oh, don't yell at me.

I didn't steal the gems, eh?

(GASPS)

I... I think you better come out here.
