Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (2003) Script

(WHOOSHING)

ERIS: Wake up, my beauties.

Rise and shine.

It's a brand-new day, and the mortal world is at peace.

But not for long.

Just look at them.

I pull one tiny thread, and their whole world unravels into chaos.

Glorious chaos.

And what could be more perfect than this?

A noble prince, a priceless treasure, and a black-hearted thief.

Oh, this is going to be fun.

Cetus? (RUMBLING PURR)

You know what to do.

Let the games begin.

(WATER SPLASHING)

SINBAD: Gentlemen, this is what we've been waiting for.

(BARKS) The world's most valuable object is on its way to Syracuse.

It's a shame it'll never get there.

(CREW LAUGHING) (BARKING)

After today, we retire to Fiji.

(CHEERING)

PIRATE 1: Fiji! PIRATE 2: Fiji!

(ALL LAUGHING)

Kale! Aye, Captain.

Spike! (BARKS)

Let's get rich!

(GRUNTS)

(BARKING)

(YELLS, GRUNTS)

(ALL GRUNTING)

(GASPS, GRUNTS)

(SOLDIERS SHOUTING)

(ALL GRUNTING)

Did you catch that last move?

Pretty cool, huh?

I thought you overworked it.

Just a bit.

Aw, you... (GROANS)

Overworked it?

(YELLING)

(GRUNTS) (GASPS)

(GRUNTS) (SCREAMING)

Oh, and I was overworking it?

(CHUCKLES)

(GRUNTING)

Proteus.

Whoa.

This just got interesting.

How long has it been?

About a lifetime ago.

(ALL GRUNTING)

SINBAD: You still fight like an old lady.

Sinbad?

(GRUNTING) Oh. Ooh!

Sinbad.

What... What are you doing here?

(CHUCKLES) I'm working.

You? What happened to you?

Where have you been?

Hey, love to stop and catch up, but I've got things to do, places to go, stuff to steal.

(PIRATES CHUCKLING)

(WHISTLES)

Oh, yeah.

Sinbad, we need to talk.

Heard about it, read about it, never actually seen it.

The Book of Peace.

It's my job to bring it safely to Syracuse.

Really? Now, see, now, I just feel bad, because you're going to get fired.

You can't be serious.

You disappear for ten years, show up, and rob me?

I wish it wasn't you. I do.

(CHUCKLING) Really. But...

But it is me, Sinbad.

Proteus, we had a special handshake, some code words, a secret hideout.

It was fun, big fun, but, uh, we were kids.

We were friends!

You're not going to steal this. Not from me.

And what would you do with it anyway?

The Book of Peace protects all of us in the Twelve Cities.

SINBAD: Exactly.

So just imagine how much all of us will pay to get it back.

Let me say it again. A long time ago, you and I were friends.

If that ever meant anything to you, prove it now.

You're right.

That was a long time ago.

(BOTH GRUNTING)

(SWORD CLANGS)

Come on. Don't get all heroic, Proteus.

If you want the Book, you have to go through me.

(BOTH GRUNTING)

What the...

(BOTH PANTING)

(ALL YELLING)

Dear gods.

(YELLING)

(BARKING)

(CHUCKLES) Go, Spike.

I got you! I got you! (SPIKE YELPS)

Well, I see you're busy.

So, uh, stay in touch.

Wait! Wait! You're just going to run away?

Uh, yeah.

Whoa... Whoa!

Sinbad!

(GRUNTS) You! My...

My ship!

(GRUNTS)

(CETUS ROARS)

(GRUNTING)

(GROANING)

(ROARING)

(YELLS)

SINBAD: Heads up!

(YELLING)

Now... Stand by for sushi.

(RUMBLING)

(BELCHES)

BOTH: Ugh!

(GASPS)

(SCREAMING)

Give that guy a raise.

Come on! Come on, Sinbad! Let's go!

Wait. Stand your ground.

(WHISTLING) What are you doing?

SINBAD: Hey! Hey, hey!

Lobster Boy, over here!

(GRUNTS) (ROARING)

Run!

Fall back!

Grab hold!

Let's go!

(PANTING)

Come on!

(GRUNTING)

And the plan?

How about try not to get killed?

Hold on!

(GRUNTING)

Here, you'll need this. Where are you going?

Fishing!

(GRUNTS)

(SNARLING)

Left, right, left, right, left, right, left, right.

(GRUNTS)

(GROWLING)

Now!

(BOTH YELLING)

Whoo!

Whoo-hoo!

(CREW CHEERING) (GRUNTS)

Oh... You okay?

Yeah. Thanks for sticking around.

Ah, just like old times.

(MEN SHOUTING) Look out!

(GRUNTING) Sinbad!

(GRUNTING)

(GRUNTING)

(BLOWING)

(GASPING)

ERIS: The day began with such promise.

And now look.

My sea monster is dead, and I still don't have the Book of Peace.

All because of you, Sinbad.

(PANTING) Uh-huh.

And you are?

Eris, the Goddess of Discord.

No doubt you've seen my likeness on the temple walls.

(CHUCKLES) You know, they don't do you justice.

Uh-huh. Now...

About my sea monster.

Right, right. Listen, I'm sorry about that.

I don't suppose a heartfelt apology would do.

(CHUCKLES WRYLY)

Heartfelt? From you?

Sinbad, you don't have a heart.

(SIGHS)

That's what I like about you.

So, I'm going to let you live.

But there's just one little thing you have to do.

Get the Book of Peace and bring it to me.

Right. Hmm. Now, see, that's a problem for me because I had my own plans for it. Uh, ransom, get rich.

You know, "me" stuff. (EXCLAIMS)

You're not thinking big enough, Sinbad.

Steal the Book for ransom, and you'll be rich enough to lounge on an island beach.

Steal the Book for me, and you can buy the beach, and the island and the world.

Hmm.

You let me live, you make me rich, I retire to paradise.

So far, I don't see a downside.

If you keep your word.

Sinbad, when a goddess gives her word, she's bound for all eternity.

All right, you're on.

I knew you'd see it my way.

So, when you've stolen the Book, follow that star beyond the horizon.

You'll find yourself in Tartarus, my Realm of Chaos.

Tartarus.

I'll see you there.

It's a date then.

So, where were we?

(CHUCKLING) Oh, yes.

You were holding your breath.

He's so cute.

And so gullible.

Cetus, well done.

(RUMBLING PURR)

(GASPS, COUGHS)

(KALE GRUNTS)

(MEN CHEERING) (BARKING)

PIRATE: Sinbad, you're alive!

Glad you made it.

Pay up. He lived.

(GROANS)

What happened down there?

(PANTING) You wouldn't believe me if I told you.

Try me.

All right, here goes.

So I meet Eris, the Goddess of Chaos.

She's got a major crush on me, and she invited me back to her place.

Ha! That's a good one!

(CREW LAUGHING) Goddess of Chaos?

Oh, I'm writing that down. (CHUCKLES)

So, that's it then? No Book. Now what do we do?

A little patience, Rat.

It's not like we don't know where it's going.

Men, all sails to Syracuse!

MAN: Right away, sir!

(CHEERING AND APPLAUSE)


For as long as I can remember, I've dreamed of this moment.

The sacred treasure that's protected us for a thousand years is now in Syracuse.

MAN 1: A toast! WOMAN: To Dymas!

MAN 2: Hear, hear! To the Book of Peace!

And to you, King Dymas and Prince Proteus.

GUARD: Make way! (CROWD GASPING)

(SWORDS UNSHEATHE)

You see? This is what happens when you use the front entrance.

Mmm-hmm.

What is he doing here?

At least he's not out robbing someone.

That's because everyone worth robbing is here.

(PANTING)

I'll bet you ten crowns you're about to put those swords down.

I'll take that bet.

PROTEUS: Guards...

Put away your swords.

I don't see you for ten years, and now twice in one day? (SCOFFS)

You're smothering me. (CHUCKLES)

I knew you'd want to thank me for saving your life... Again.

(CHUCKLES)

You probably just heard we had free food and wine.

You hear that, guys? Dinner and drinks are on the prince.

Come on. There's someone I want you to meet.

(SOFTLY) Get to work.

Weapons?

(GROWLS) (GASPS)

(BOTH CHUCKLING)

PROTEUS: Here she is. I've told her all about you.

(GASPS) (CLEARS THROAT)

Sinbad, I would like to introduce you to my fiancée, the Lady Marina, Ambassador from Thrace.

So, this is the infamous Sinbad.

I heard all about this morning.

First you tried to rob Proteus, and then you save his life.

So, which are you, a thief or a hero?

Sinbad wanted to give me an opportunity to thank...

(INDISTINCT CHATTER) (MUSIC PLAYING)

...him.

(GOBBLING NOISILY)

RAT: Eight months on the sea with nothing but eggs and pickles...

You don't know what that can do to a man.

Oh, it's almost too easy.

There's only a handful of guards.

Forget it. Let's get back to the ship.

Just like that? But the Book is almost ours.

(SIGHS)

Oh.

What? Who is she?

An old girlfriend?

I'm afraid it's not that simple.

Let's go.

Jed, pack it up.

What? I... I just put the...

(GROANS FRUSTRATEDLY)

(CHUCKLES WICKEDLY)

Oh, this is just too easy.

Look at it this way:

Now that Sinbad's gone, your father can finally relax and enjoy the evening.

(CHUCKLES) Well, you're right about that. He's trying not to show it, but he's so proud to have the Book in Syracuse.

He's been planning this day his whole life.

And soon it will be your responsibility.

Our responsibility.

(SIGHING) It's beautiful.

It is.

My father spent years preparing it for the Book.

There are guards on every level, and if you look up to the...

Ah... (CHUCKLES SOFTLY)

You were talking about the ocean, weren't you?

I only wish I'd seen more of it.

I used to imagine sailing far beyond the Twelve Cities, discovering the world.

(CHUCKLES SOFTLY)

Oh, look at it, Proteus.

There's so much wonder.

Marina...

Our marriage was arranged many years ago.

It's always been expected of us.

But politics is not a reason to get married.

I don't want you to do this just because it's your duty.

I'm asking you for myself now.

Marina...

Will you marry me?

Proteus, I... DYMAS: There you are!

I think the delegates from Manoli are trying to give a toast.

I'm not sure. They're doing something with their knees.

Marina, I need an ambassador.

(EXHALES)

Of course, Sire.

(PEOPLE LAUGHING AND CHATTING IN DISTANCE)

(WIND WHISTLING)

(CANDLE WICK SIZZLES) Huh?

(WIND HOWLING)

(SIZZLING) Who's there?

(HISSING)

Huh?

Sinbad!

(GRUNTING)

(GROANS)

I love playing pretend.

(CHUCKLES WICKEDLY)

All the pieces are coming together.

(LOUD RUMBLING)

(PEOPLE CLAMORING)

Proteus, the Book!

(RUMBLING)

(GASPS)

(GRUNTS AND GROANS)

PROTEUS: Sinbad. Proteus!

It's about time.

Do you realize how serious this is?

Do you realize how many times I've heard that today?

You've betrayed Syracuse! Oh... Not you, too.

Stealing the Book of Peace, when you knew how much it meant to us!

Proteus, here's the way this works.

First, I actually commit a crime, and then you get to blame me for it!

Then how do you explain this?

(EXHALES)

Eris. What?

Eris. She framed me.

Sinbad, listen to yourself. Trust me, Proteus, the Book is in Tartarus.

Talk to your father. Tell him... This is beyond my father.

The ambassadors are convening now for your trial.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Trial? I didn't do it!

Look, I left the Book on your ship and that's the last I saw of it. You were there.

You know the truth.

You know me.

Do I?

I knew a kid.

Who are you now, Sinbad?

(SIGHS)

Look me in the eye and tell me.

Did you steal the Book?

No.

DYMAS: We've heard enough of your lies.

Sinbad, for the last time, give us the Book.

How many times do I have to say it?

I don't have it!

AMBASSADOR: Very well, then.

The Delegation of the Twelve Cities finds you guilty of treason, and we sentence you to die. Take him away.

Come on! This is a joke, right?

Are you... Are you people blind?

I didn't do it!

PROTEUS: Stop!

(PEOPLE GASPING)

I demand the right of substitution.

Take me in his place.

No!

Sinbad says that Eris took the Book and I believe him.

Let him go to Tartarus and recover the Book. What?

(MURMURING)

What are you doing?

You claim that Eris stole the Book. Steal it back.

You're good at that.

Hey, look. I will not be responsible for your life.

You would do the same for me. No, I wouldn't.

DYMAS: If Sinbad is allowed to leave the city, he'll never come back!

Son, listen to reason.

No, Father, you listen.

Sinbad either stole the Book, or he's telling the truth and it's in Tartarus.

Either way, he's our only hope.

But you can't...

Proteus, you realize that if Sinbad does not return, you will be put to death in his place.

I understand.

(SIGHS)

So be it.

Sinbad has ten days to return the Book.

(SIGHS)

Release him.

(CROWD MURMURING)

(SIGHS)

Oh, and, Sinbad...

Don't be late.

(GROANS)


Hmm.

So, any idea how we actually get to Tartarus?

Tartarus?

(CHUCKLING) No, no, no.

People get killed in Tartarus.

So where are we going?

SINBAD: Fiji.

Fiji? This time of year?

Think of the beaches.

Oh, beautiful, if you like mosquitoes.

Think of the sun.

It's monsoon season.

Oh, then the women.

They're cannibals, Sinbad.

Exactly.

(GROANS) Come on, Kale.

He's your friend.

Listen to you. You sound like my mother.

Proteus will be fine. You're sure of that?

You and I both know Dymas is not going to let them execute his only son.

So we're running away? We're retiring.

We don't need another score. We've got enough.

Now, set a course for Fiji.

Gentlemen, we're heading to Fiji!

(ALL CHEERING) Fiji! Fiji!

(SPIKE BARKING)

(GRUMBLING) Kale... Book.

(GRUNTING) Proteus.

Look at all this.

I can't believe it.

Oh, but this can't be real.

It'd be far too deli...

(CLATTERING) Uh-oh.

This is more like it.

Stolen from Venezia.

(EXHALES)

From Pompeii...

And from a brothel in Syracuse.

Good guess. (GASPS)

What do you think you're doing here?

I'm here to make sure you get the Book of Peace.

Or bring back your dead body if you fail.

Really? And how are you going to pull that off?

By whatever means necessary.

Did you bring a crew? No.

You know how to get to Tartarus? Um... No.

Can you navigate on your own? Yes!

Well, good! Then I'll dump your butt in a rowboat, and you can paddle all the way back to Syracuse.

'Cause we're going to Fiji.

Fiji? Yup.

Just as I thought.

What? Sinbad, you're not a very complicated guy.

All someone has to do is imagine the most gutless course of action, and you're bound to take it.

Hey, this is not my problem.

I did not steal the Book.

You're really not going to lose any sleep over this, are you?

Not a wink. Because me, I'd be tossing and turning, knowing I'm alive...

Because I let my friend die.

(EXCLAIMS)

I'm not responsible for this mess.

And I didn't ask Proteus to put his neck on the line for me.

Look, clearly I can't appeal to your honor.

But I have other ways of convincing you.

Really?

Uh... Just how do you expect to do that?

By speaking your language.

Keep talking.

Yup, this'll do!

But not for first class.

As you can see, we're well-equipped to accommodate the most discerning of royal tastes.

(GRUNTING) We have excellent ocean views...

Luxurious living quarters, with three gourmet meals a day... pickles, eggs, and pickles.

Oh, hey, Spike, there you are.

I'd like to introduce you to your new bunkmate.

Well, actually, you're his new bunkmate, as it's actually his bunk.

(LAUGHS)

Ugh!

We do hope you have a pleasant stay aboard the Chimera.

Oh, if he starts hugging your leg, it means he likes you.

(GRUNTS) If you think...

(SPIKE BARKS)

How did she even get on the ship?

(STARTLED GRUNTS)

(MIMICS YAWNING)

Gentlemen, we have a new course.

We're going to Tartarus.

Huh? What happened to Fiji?

What? No fun? No beaches?

Rat.

Sorry, Captain.

But did you say Tartarus? That's right.

Will that be the same Tartarus from which no sailor ever returns?

The Tartarus of lost souls, where they grind your bones and pickle your spleen, and... No, Rat.

This is the nice Tartarus, with lots of beaches and drinks.

You know, with little umbrellas?

(MUTTERING IN ITALIAN)

I'm only doing this for the money.

Right.

So how do we get there?

That star's our point.

(GRUNTING)

Well...

Our little thief isn't going to run away.

(HISSES)

He thinks he's going to pay us a visit.

(SNARLING)

Hmm. Let's provide some mood music.

(SIRENS SINGING)

(MARINA GRUNTS)

Oh, come on. You look great.

(WHIMPERING)

Look lively! Jed, get the long poles!

Oh, pardon me, milady.

(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

PIRATE: Yeah, come on, come on, come on.

The Dragon's Teeth?

(RAT CLEARS THROAT)

(GRUNTS)

Indeed, signorina.

Only the most foolish of captains would dare to sail a ship through this!

SINBAD: Rat, reef the fors'le.

Oh, excuse me, signorina.

(GRUNTS)

Are you sure you know what...

Yes, we've done this kind of thing before.

No, there is no other way. Look...

And, yes, you have my permission to stand there quietly and get a free lesson in sailing.

You know...

Besides, a ship is no place for a woman.

(GASPS) Jin!

Easy on the main! JIN: Aye!

(SCOFFS)

(WIND WHISTLING) (WOOD CREAKING)

Steady as she goes.

Rocks off the starboard bow!

(SIRENS SINGING SOFTLY)

(CLATTERING)

Steady.

(SINGING CONTINUES)

What is that sound?

Shh.

(TINKLING)

SIRENS: (SINGING) Sinbad...

Sinbad...

Sinbad, I...

(BARKING)

Sirens.

(SIRENS HUMMING)

Sinbad.

(GASPS) Sinbad!

Jin?

Li? (KISSING)

Come and get it, ladies!

Kale?

Come with me.

We'll speak of love.

Oh... (KISSING)

Who's bad?

Sin-bad.

Ah... Men.

(SIRENS CONTINUE SINGING)

(GRUNTS)

(SIGHING)

(ALL GRUNTING)

I saw her first! (GRUNTS)

Round the deck! Now!

Yeah... (GASPS)

Amore! Amore! Amore!

My darling. Rat!

I love you.

(GRUNTING AND GROANING)

(SPEAKING ITALIAN)

(SIREN HUMMING)

(GRUNTING)

(GROANING)

(SIREN SHRIEKING)

Spike! Get Sinbad!

(BARKING)

Ow!

(SIRENS SINGING)

(YELLS)

(GROANING)

(GRUNTS)

(GRUNTS)

(SINGING CONTINUES)

Spike, the blades!

(BARKS) (GRUNTS)

(SIRENS SCREAMING)

(SIGHS)

(COUGHING)

(GROANS AND SIGHS)

(PIRATES GROANING)

Oh, my precious.

Wake up, you idiot!

(PIRATES GROANING)

What happened?

Sinbad saved us.

RAT: No, Marina.

Marina saved us? Marina!

KALE: Marina saved us.

All right, men, snap out of it.

Let's get back to reality. We got a ship to sail.

Here's my little hero. You were so brave.

Yeah. What a good dog.

Uh...

Uh... (CLEARS THROAT)

Still think a ship's no place for a woman?

(HUFFS) Absolutely!

(WHINES)

I mean, look at my ship!

This railing was hand-carved mahogany!

And here! These moldings came all the way from Damascus!

Do you have any idea what I went through to steal these?

(SCOFFS)

That's exactly why women shouldn't drive.

Are you crazy? I saved your life!

Oh, I would've been fine.

I always am.

Right.

(MUTTERING) So ungrateful. It's just typical.

And you chipped the paint!

Right here... Look at it.

That's more than a little scratch.

(GRUNTS ANGRILY)

(SPIKE BARKS)

(SNORTS AND WHINES)

(GRUNTS ANGRILY)

(MUTTERING) The dog and the crew and that woman!

What?

Thank you! You're welcome!

No problem! Don't worry about it!

I won't! Good!

Good-bye! Bye to you!

(HUFFS)

(CREW MURMURING)

(SCOFFS)

(PANTING)

You happy now?

(PANTING)

(SCOFFS)

(BARKS AND WHINES)

(KEYS JINGLING)

(DOOR OPENING)

Proteus, come quickly.

What? There's a ship waiting in the harbor.

A crew of my most trusted officers will take you far from Syracuse.

But the ambassadors' guards? Are asleep or well-bribed.

But we must go now.

Go where?

To live the rest of my life in exile?

To live, son. I won't let them execute you for Sinbad's crime.

Neither will Sinbad.

Proteus, don't be foolish!

Sinbad has no intention of going to Tartarus.

The Sinbad you knew as a child is...

Is still in him as a man.

I've seen it.

Proteus... (SIGHS)

Go, Father.

I know what I'm doing.

(DOOR CREAKS SHUT)

(LOCK CLICKS)

(SIGHS)

KALE: All right, listen up. We're here for ten minutes.

You get lost, you get left.

(GROANS)

How did one woman do so much damage?

(WOOD BREAKING)

All right.

I'm going to need the full set of chisels, the jack plane, and about a cord of cut wood.

All right, men, you heard the captain.

Find some logs and be quick about it.

(GROANS) Oh, for heaven's sake!

You only need a little tree sap, and she'll be as good as new.

When I want your advice, I'll... Hey, hey, hey!

Where do you think you're going?

Well, fine! At least take someone with...

LI: May I assist you, lady?

Why, thank you.

Right this way, signorina. How nice to see some men haven't forgotten a little common courtesy.

(MOCKINGLY) Common courtesy.

Not so fast. But you know she's right.

The tree sap would be perfect for... Just...

Stay with the ship. (GRUNTS)

(BIRDS CHIRPING) (SPIKE BARKING)

I already said thank you.

That's what this is all about, isn't it?

It's about repairing the ship.

If I break something, I fix it.

Um, knife, please.

Oh, yeah, like I'd give you a weapon?

Thank you, Rat.

You know, you really ought to be a little more courteous. (CHUCKLES)

Oh, great. Now I'm getting etiquette lessons from a bilge rat.

Well, she did save the ship, Captain.

Why, thank you, Luca.

And now she's helping to fix it.

Very handy, I say. And brave!

This girl wouldn't know how to fix a broken fingernail!

Honestly, you are the most boorish, pig-headed man I've ever met.

Hey, lady, I've seen the highborn boys your type hangs out with. (CHUCKLES)

And I'm the only man you've ever met.

(MARINA GRUNTS)

(GROANS) Whoa.

Mmm. (SPIKE WHIMPERING)

(MARINA CHUCKLES SOFTLY)

Oh, no. No. No.

No... (GRUNTS)

Five on Marina.

(GROANS)

You... You...

Egotistical... SINBAD: You spoiled...

Disrespectful, pretentious... Deluded...

Pompous, self-centered...

High-and-mighty... Untrustworthy, ungrateful, impossible, insufferable...

At least I'm not repressed! Repressed?

I'll show you repressed!

(GRUNTS)

(RUMBLING) (GASPS)

(BIRDS SCREECHING)

What the...

(WHOOSHING)

(QUIETLY) Put it back.

(CHUCKLES NERVOUSLY)

(RUMBLING) (GASPING AND YELLING)

(SPIKE BARKING)

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa, whoa...

(RUMBLING STOPS) Ew...

(BARKING)

Ew!

(ALL YELLING)

(RASPY GROWLING)

Run!

It's a fish! LI: It's a fish!

SINBAD: Kale!

Kale!

(LOUD THUD) Whoa!

(ROARING)

(YELLS)

Jump! (MARINA SCREAMS)

(MEN YELLING) (SPIKE BARKING)

(SINBAD YELLING)

Kale!

Got it!

(ALL YELLING) (SPIKE BARKING)

Veer off, Kale!

The star!

Hold your heading!

Rat, tie it off!

(STAMMERING) Wha... wha...

(SINBAD GRUNTS)

Ha-ha!

Wait!

(MARINA LAUGHS)

SINBAD: Yee-haw!


(GROANS)

KALE: Sinbad!

The men can't take much more.

(GROANS) I can't... (GAGS)

Take much more, either.

Cut the line!

(ALL GROANING) (GAGS)

(BELCHES)

(HICCUPS) LUCA: Oh, no, Spike!

Whoa, hold on, no... LI: No, no, no, please...

Oh, Spike! (SPIKE VOMITS)

JED: Hey, where'd he get the carrots?

(GROANS)

Whose idea was that again?

I don't know.

(CHUCKLES)

But he owes me lunch.

The Granite Gates.

Bet you never thought I'd get us this far.

(CHUCKLING) No, I didn't.

But Proteus did.

For some reason, he trusts you.

(CHUCKLES SOFTLY)

Well, what could he have been thinking?

How did you two ever meet?

(CHUCKLES) Running for my life, as usual.

A couple of angry thugs had cornered me outside the palace walls.

I was trapped.

A sword at my throat, at my chest, at my...

Pickles and eggs! (ALL GROANING)

(CLEARS THROAT)

Well, you get the idea.

And then suddenly, there was a fourth blade.

It was Proteus.

You see, he'd watched it all from his room in the palace.

He actually climbed down the castle wall to fight at my side, and, boy, did we fight.

It was like we'd rehearsed it.

We were best friends from that day forward.

(GASPING)

(WHISPERS) So...

How are we going to get down?

I... I don't know.

What? I don't know yet.

I'm thinking about it, all right?

You scaled a thousand-foot tower of ice, and you don't know how to get down?

Of all the ungrateful... (GRUNTS)

Look, if you'd rather take your chances on your own, that can be arranged. Shh.

All right.

(SCREECHING)

So, what do we have to work with?

Um... Ropes?

Uh... No.

Uh, grappling hooks?

Yeah... No.

Your swords?

(GRUNTS SOFTLY)

Hey, I've got this.

Oh, great.

He can pick his teeth when he's done with us.

(INHALES DEEPLY)

Sinbad?

(EXHALES)

Thank you for coming after me.

Well, you...

You're welcome.

This life suits you.

(CHUCKLES) Yeah.

I wasn't made for dry land.

(CHUCKLES)

And you?

Is it the shore or the sea?

I've always loved the sea.

I even dreamed of a life on it.

But it wasn't meant to be.

I have responsibilities in Syracuse.

You really have to give it up?

Yes.

(SIGHS)

(GASPS SOFTLY)

You know, I've traveled the world, seen things no other man has seen...

But nothing, nothing compares to the open sea.

And is this what you always wanted?

(CHUCKLES) Not really.

When we were young, Proteus and I used to talk about joining the Royal Navy and serving Syracuse side by side.

But as we got older, our lives began to change.

He's a prince, and I'm... Well.

(CHUCKLES)

I was never jealous of him, though.

Until one morning, a ship came into harbor, A ship with his future on it.

It was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen.

(SOFTLY) What was on the ship?

You.

Proteus met you at the dock.

I jumped on the first outbound ship and never looked back.

Until now.

(DISTANT WHOOSHING)

We're dead.

(STAMMERING) It just ends, Captain!

It's the edge of the world!

Pay up. It's flat.

(COINS CLINKING)

Well, that's it. Time to go home.

Nuh-uh-uh.

The captain hasn't given his orders yet.

(SIGHS)

Follow that star beyond the horizon.

Beyond the horizon.

(WIND WHOOSHING)

(FLAGS FLUTTERING)

Sinbad?

Men! All hands to your posts!

Free all sheets! Wait for my command!

What?

Now! Go! Go! Go! Sinbad, how are we gonna pull this off?

Just trust me.

Rat! Rig the main yard to the fors'le!

But that would stop us dead! Just do it!

Aye, aye, Captain.

(GRUNTS)

Whoa!

Slack to all sheets!

LUCA: Aye, aye, Cap'n!

SINBAD: Cut the fore and main trusses!

Move! Move! Move!

LUCA: I got it. I got it. I got it.

Aft yard astern! But that's...

Crazy, I know! Now hurry!

(GRUNTING)

Here, grab it! Go!

Swing the fors'le to port!

Ease the aft! Full hoist to forward sails!

MARINA: Aye, aye, Captain.

LUCA: Come on!

Pull!

(GRUNTING)

(WIND WHOOSHING)

All hands amidships!

And pray to the gods.

We may be meeting them soon.

I'm coming with you.

And don't tell me the Realm of Chaos is no place for a woman.

Make yourself at home.

(CHUCKLES NERVOUSLY)

Thank you. Uh...

Nice place you got here.

Like it?

I'm planning on doing the whole world this way.

Wow, that's a good plan.

Well, I see you're busy, so listen, we'll just take the Book of Peace and get of your way.

(CHUCKLES) What makes you think I have it?

Uh, well, you framed me for the theft, so they would execute me.

You? Yeah.

No.

Proteus!

You knew he would take my place.

(CHUCKLES)

What a clever little man you are.

You thought I'd run.

Then Proteus would die, and Syracuse would be...

Left without the next rightful king, and tumble into glorious chaos.

You humans are so predictable.

Proteus couldn't help being ever so noble, and you couldn't help betraying him.

But I didn't betray Proteus! I didn't run away.

Oh, but you did betray him.

You stole his only love.

Look at her, Sinbad. (GRUNTS)

He's not even in his grave yet, and you're moving in on his girl.

Face it, your heart is as black as mine.

You're wrong about him! He knows I'm not!

You don't know what's in his heart.

Oh, yes, I do.

And more importantly, so does he.

In your heart, you know that Proteus is going to die because he saw something in you that just isn't there.

No. You want to bet?

I'll tell you what. Let's play a game.

And if you win, I'll give you the Book of Peace.

(RUMBLING)

There it is, noble hero.

(RUMBLING) (GRUNTS)

ERIS: Not so fast.

My game has rules, Sinbad.

I'll ask you a question.

One simple question.

If you answer truthfully, the Book is yours.

Give me your word.

You still don't trust me?

Uh... no.

(SIGHS) Isn't it a pity we live in such skeptical times?

Oh, all right.

You have my word, as a Goddess.

Fair enough?

Ask your question.

Excellent.

Now, we all know what happens if you get the Book of Peace.

You return it to Syracuse and save Proteus.

But if you don't get the Book, you have a choice to make.

Either sail to paradise with the woman of your dreams, or return to Syracuse to die.

You're either a thief or a hero.

So, here's my question, Sinbad.

If you don't get the Book, will you go back to die?

(WIND WHISTLES)

I will go back.

(RUMBLING)

You're lying.

(BOTH GRUNT)

(CHUCKLING WICKEDLY)

(GRUNTS)

(GRUNTS)

(INHALES)

(SIGHS)

I'm sorry, Marina.

Eris is right about me.

No, she's not. You answered her question.

You told the truth.

It wasn't the truth.

It was me trying to pass myself off as someone I'm not.

Sinbad, I've seen who you are!

You don't need to pretend!

Eris trapped you!

Why should you or Proteus or anyone have to die?

Marina... No! You need to escape.

Get as far away as you can.

I'll go back. I'll explain everything.

No, Marina. (SOBS)

I can't watch you die!

I love you.


But could you love a man who would run away?

I did my best.

It wasn't enough.

No.

You came back anyway.

How could I do anything else... my friend?

(PANICKED CRIES)

Eris, I don't understand.

Don't play coy with me.

Maybe you can fool these people, but I know who you are.

You're a selfish, unprincipled liar!

Wait a minute.

I didn't lie.

I came back.

That's why you're here.

This was all part of your test.

I told the truth.

And wasn't there something about being "bound for all eternity"?

(CROWD GASPS)

(GRUNTS)

(SIGHS)

(CROWD EXCLAIMS)

Well, well, well.

This has got to be a little embarrassing for you, Eris.

(CHUCKLES SOFTLY)

Don't push your luck, Sinbad.

You're cute, but not that cute.

And lucky for you, I've got places to go, things to destroy, stuff to steal.

Ta.

Uh, whoa, hey.

How much you got on you?

I offer you the gratitude of the Twelve Cities, and the apology of a king.

(CHUCKLES)

No, really. How much?

Sinbad.

(CHUCKLES SOFTLY)

(APPLAUDING)

Come on. This is going to be a heck of a party.

Everyone's going to want to hear about the voyage.

Fair winds, calm seas.

Nothing much to tell.

(CHUCKLES)

What's the matter? No fun if you're actually invited?

No, it's just, uh...

There's a hammock in Fiji with my name on it.

Good sailing, Sinbad.

You're going to be king someday.

Just another uneventful day in Syracuse.

(CHUCKLES SOFTLY)

You know, I stood here with a woman once.

She looked over the ocean and wished she could sail beyond the horizon.

She saw... such wonder.

And what happened to this woman?

She got her chance.

She sailed the seas, and she fell in love.

(SIGHS)

Proteus, I...

Marina, follow your heart.

Mine is here in Syracuse.

Yours...

Yours is sailing with the next tide.

(SIGHING) Oh, Proteus.

(SEAGULLS CAWING)

Captain?

Hmm?

We're ready to sail.

All right, Kale.

Take us out.

Aye, aye, Captain.

Cast off!

(CREW SHOUTING)

(WHIMPERING)

Oh... Rat!

RAT: What?

(CHUCKLING)

MARINA: Excuse me, Captain.

You need to replace these rig joints pretty soon.

The mizzen ropes need the support.

These joints were from the Jasmine Sea.

That's halfway around the world.

Then we'd better get started.

Well, you know, that means going through the Hydra's lair.

Mmm-hmm. The Minotaur's haven.

Mmm-hmm. The Cyclops' den.

Mmm-hmm. Under the Swansea Bridge.

Mmm-hmm. Through the China Seas.

That's a very long voyage.

And it's very, very dangerous.

Don't worry.

I'll protect you.
