The Fifth Element (1997) Script

Come, come!


Aziz. Aziz.

Aziz, light!

Aziz... light.


We start again.

"When the three planets are in eclipse... the black hole, like a door, is open.

Evil comes... spreading terror and chaos."

See the snake, Billy? The ultimate evil.

Make sure you get the snake. Yes, I've got your snakes.

I got all the snakes.

When is the snake act supposed to occur?

If this is the five... and this is the one...

every 5,000 years.

So, I've got some time then.

You bring them water.

Good boy. I'll take it to them.

Go with God. Be safe from evil.

You see here these different peoples, or symbols of people... gathering the four elements of life... water, fire, earth, air... around a fifth one.

A fifth... element.

Forgive me, Lord.

They already know too much.


How are you?

Well. You have some glasses? Of course.

I'm so glad to see you. It's the most extraordinary thing.

It's the greatest find in history.

You must be parched.

Oh, yes, yes. I'm sorry.

It's like a battle plan.

Here the good.

Here the evil.

And here, a weapon... against evil.

I'm going to be famous.

Then let us toast to your fame.

To fame.


You can't toast with water.

Billy, in my sack, the grappa.

This I don't understand.

This could be something... prehistoric.

I don't know.

But, wait.


Look, look.

They're here.

This man... this perfect being.

I know this is the key. I know it.

This divine light they talk about.

What is divine light?

Aziz, light!

Much better. Thank you.

My Lord.

Father, this is the most unbelievable thing I've ever seen.

Don't you think?

Are you German?


I know he was about to discover everything.

But, no worry.

I was there in time.

Priest... you and those before you... have served us well.

But war is coming.

Stones not safe on Earth anymore.

This... is really amazing.

The fifth element.

Take the stones.

My Lord... if you take the weapon, we'll be defenseless... when evil returns.

In 300 years... when evil returns... so shall we.

Oh, Professor.


Don't move!

I have a gun!

Please, understand. They're our friends.


Father, they've killed the Professor! They're monsters!

I'll explain everything.

You're with them? Look at me.

I am your friend.

No, Father. Billy, look at me!

Please, put... the gun down.

Billy, no!


The wall is closing!

Here is your mission:

Pass your knowledge to the next priest... as it was passed to you.

I will do as you command, but... hurry, you still have time.

Time not important.

Only life... important.

I will fulfill my mission!

You can count on me!

I will pass the knowledge until your return.

Anything yet?

Not even a temperature? The analyzers have jammed.

One shows a million degrees, the others minus 5,000.

Let's see it.

It's taking shape.

Send out a probe.

Ladies and gentlemen... the President of the Federated Territories.

On air with General Staedert in 30 seconds.

I saved this seat for you, Father.

President on the line.

We're in position.

I have to address the Supreme Council. Just the facts.

There are no results from the chemical and molecular analysis yet.

All the calibers are overshot.

We're initiating thermonucleatic imaging.

What you're saying is, you don't know what this is.

All we know is, it just keeps getting bigger.


My philosophy is shoot first and ask questions later.

I don't like uninvited guests.

All right, then.

Mr. President?

Priest Vito Cornelius, expert of astrophenomenon.

I... have a different theory to offer you, sir.

You have 20 seconds.

Imagine that this... thing is not anything that can be identified... because it prefers not to be.

Wherever there is life... it brings death... because it's evil.

Absolute evil.

One more reason to shoot first.

Evil begets evil, Mr. President.

Shooting will only make it stronger.

Probe will obtain objective in five seconds.

Growth rate is at 27%.

Your theory is interesting, but we don't have time to go into it.

Time is of no importance. Only life is important.

You're right. That's exactly what we'll do.

We'll protect the life of 200 billion of my fellow citizens.

You may fire when ready.

Up-front loading of a 120-ZR missile. Marker lights on the objective.

Its structure solidified on the surface.

I think it's anticipating the attack. That denotes intelligence.

The most... terrible intelligence imaginable.

120's loaded.

The ship is in combat formation.

Missiles are loaded.

Staedert. Yes, sir.

I have a doubt.

I don't, Mr. President.

What happened? Can you hear me?

What happened?

Did you destroy it? I'm about to.

The planet has increased diameter by 200%.

It's moving toward the ship.

What do we have that's bigger than 240?

Nothing, sir.

Staedert, do you hear me?

Get out of there.

I don't want an incident. Do you hear me?

Get out of there. Can you hear me, Staedert?

Do you understand? Listen.

That's an order.

Do you understand me? Do you hear me?

Get out of there!

Good God!

Four a day.

I'm tryin'.

To quit is my goal.

I'm up.

All right, I'm up.


Hey, dog brain, Finger here.

Hi, sweetie.

I love you too.

You haven't called me that since basic training.

I was talking to the cat.

I forgot... you prefer your cat to the real thing.

At least the cat comes back.

Still pining for that two-timing slut?

There's millions out there.

I don't want a million.

I just want one.

The perfect one.

It don't exist, Major.

Yeah, I know.


Picture of you.

How do I look? Like shit.

Must be an old picture.

Bring me your hack for a six-month overhaul.

Negative. A.S.A.P.

I don't need one.

Who sat next to you for 1,000 missions? I know how you drive.

Finger, I drive a cab now... not a space fighter.

Tell me. How many points you got left on your license?

Major, how many points?

At least 50.

Know what? You gotta learn to lie better.

See you tonight.

Welcome to Paradise.

Welcome to Fhloston Paradise.

It's Ruby Rhod, and I'll tell you live at five... the winner of the super green Gemini Croquette Contest!

The winner will go with me for two days to Fhloston Paradise.

Tune in to Radio Cosmos.

Don't watch all day. It'll rot your brain.

For a perfect world.

Give me the cash. Been here long?

Long enough. Give me the cash.

Is that a Z-140?

Alleviated titanium.

Neurocharged assault model.

Good thing for me it's not loaded.

It's not loaded?

You have to... push that yellow button to load it.

Take your time.

Want me to--

There you go.

Give me the cash!

That's a very dangerous gun.

Maybe you better let me hang on to this one for you.

You don't mind, do you? You sure?

No. Take it. I don't need it.

That's a nice hat.

You like it?


Please enter your license.

Yes, just a minute.

Welcome, Mr. Dallas.

Good morning.

Sleep well? Me too.

I had a horrible nightmare.

Propulsion 2-X-4.

You have five points left on your license.

Yeah, thank you for reminding me.

Have a nice day.

Why not?

You have 48 hours.

That's the time it needs to adapt itself to our living conditions.

And then? Then it will be too late.

The goal of this thing is not to fight over money or power... but to exterminate life.

All forms of life.

You're telling me there's nothing that can stop this.

There is only one thing.

The Mondoshawan have in their possession the weapon to defeat evil.

Four elements... gathered around a fifth... supreme being, the ultimate warrior... created to protect life.

Together they produce "The Light of Creation."

Able to bring life to the farthest reaches of the universe.

But, if... evil stands there...

Then what?

Then light turns to dark.

Life to death... forever.

A Mondoshawan spaceship requests permission to enter our territory.

Give it permission to enter with our warmest regards.

Thank you.

Permission to enter granted.

Show time.

We are lost.

Aknot, we are connected to Earth.

Mr. Zorg's office.

It's Aknot.

I'm so glad to hear you, Aknot.

The mission is accomplished.

You'll have what you asked for in a few hours.

Good. I'll meet you at my factory.

The attack was by two unregistered warships.

Close all borders and declare a state of general alert.

Try to contact the Mondoshawans. We owe them an explanation.

Three hundred years of waiting for nothing.

Go get some rest.


The Mondoshawan...

I am their contact.

They will come for me.

This is government business. I'll keep you informed.

The rescue team has reported from the crash site.

Any survivors?

Only one.

You call that a survivor?

A few cells still alive. More than I need.

Have you identified it?

The computer went off the charts.

Normal human beings have 40 DNA memo groups... which is enough for any species to perpetuate.

This has 200,000 memo groups.

Sounds like a freak of nature.

Yeah, can't wait to meet him.

You okay? Over here.

Excuse me.

General, I want to show you something.

This is a normal human DNA chain.

You, me, anybody, right?

Watch this.

The compositional elements of his DNA chain are like ours.

There's simply more of them, with infinite genetic knowledge.

Almost like this being was engineered.

Is there any danger?

We put it through the cellular hygiene detector.

The cell is, for lack of a better word... perfect.

Go ahead.

Mr. Perfect better be polite.

Otherwise, I turn him into cat food.

Activate it.

Tissue processing.

Ten seconds to ultraviolet protection.

This is the last phase.

The cells are bombarded by atoms which forces the body to react.

That means growing skin.


Reconstruction complete.

Remove the shield.

I told you. Perfect.

Thermal bandages.

I'd... like to take a few pictures... for the archives.

What's she saying? I don't know.

Activate the phonic detector.

Is that thing solid?

Unbreakable. Good.

If you want out... you'll have to develop those communication skills.

General alert.


Ladder on 18.

Two men with me. The rest in the main ventilation.

This way.

Lady, stay calm.

This is the police.

There's nowhere else to go.

Slowly turn around and put your hands on the floor.

Do you understand?

She doesn't.

I think we need a flying unit.

This is the police.

This is the police.

We are processing your identification.

Put your arms up and follow our instructions.

She has no file.

She dove off.

You just had an accident.

Yes, I know I just had an accident, you daffy bastard!

You have one point left on your license.

Look out!


I can't believe it. Shit.

Any survivors?


Are you okay?


Boom. Yeah, I understand "boom."

Bada boom.


Big bada boom.

Big... bada big boom.

Big boom.

Yeah, big bada boom.

Bada boom.

Big boom. Big bada boom.

You're lucky you're not dead.

This is a police control.

Please keep your hands on the wheel.

You have an unauthorized passenger in your vehicle.

We are going to arrest her.

Thank you for cooperating.

Sorry, honey.

Looks like this is your ride.

Open the door.

Do what they say.


"Please... help."

I only have one point left on my license.

I need it to get back to the garage and get the cab a six-month overhaul.

You understand?

Can you please open the passenger door?

Please... help.

I can't.

I repeat... open the passenger door.

Yeah, yeah, sure.

Why not?

Thank you for your cooperation.


Finger's going to kill me.

Emergency! Emergency!

One point has been removed.

Yes, I know!

This is so stupid.

Assist in pursuit of yellow cab.

Unit 47, we're on the way... after we finish lunch.

Two golden menus.

I'm too old, too tired and too hungry to go chasing some hot rod.

Thank you so much.

And I'm definitely too thirsty.

Look out!

We got lucky.

If they don't chase you after a mile, they don't chase you.

Maybe two miles.

Hang on.

Look, lady...

I only speak English and bad English!

Run an ID.

I'm all for conversation, but maybe you can just shut up for a minute!

He's got a scan blocker.

Means he's a car thief. Blast him.

I don't know what you did...

but they are pissed off!

Hold on!

We're safe for a while.

You want to play soft? I'll play soft.

You want to play hard? Let's play hard.

If we get to the fog, we'll be okay.

If we make the fog.

How do they expect us to find anything in this shit?

We're just going to wait here until things quiet down if you don't mind.


You okay?


You don't need a priest, just a doctor.

Vito Cornelius.




I'm looking for a priest.

The weddings are downstairs, my son. Congratulations.

She's not my bride. She's my fare.

She's looking for Vito Cornelius.

The phone book said he lived here.

Yes, that's me, but I don't know who she is.

Nobody does. No file, no ID, nothing.

She's got a tattoo on this arm.


Fifth... element.

Finger's going to kill me.

Hey! Wake up! Who are you?

I brought the girl, remember? The redhead.

She just dropped in on me.

Started speaking a bizarre language.

It's not bizarre. It's the divine language.

It's the ancient language... spoken throughout the universe before time was time.

He's a she.

You noticed that.


It's a miracle. Miracle she's not dead.

Not a moment to lose. Wake her up.

But gently, because this woman is... mankind's most precious possession.

She is perfect.


More dignified.

Hey, lady... wake up.

I shouldn't have done that.

It was wrong to kiss you.

He said to wake you gently.

You're right.

Just thought you might remember me from the cab.


"Bada boom?"

"Big bada boom?"

Boom. Big bada boom. In the cab. Look.

I drive a cab. This is me.

Korben Dallas.

Korben. You understand?


Take it.

You can call me when you learn English.

Just kidding.

What is your name?



Leeloo Minai Lekarariba-Laminai-Tchai Ekbat De Sebat.


All that's your name?

Do you have...

a shorter name?


Korben Dallas.



Korben, Leeloo.

Leeloo, Korben.

You're sure she's a Supreme Being?

Absolutely sure.

Old friends.

Yeah, you're right.

Ask her for my gun back. What's your name?

Korben Dallas.

Thank you for your help.

You've been kind, but now the girl needs to rest.

She's been on a long trip.

I know. I was there when she landed.

Wait, wait, Father.

She said something I didn't understand.

What does "ekto gamat" mean?

"Never without my permission."

That's what I thought.

I shouldn't have kissed her.

Oh, no. I'm so sorry. I forgot your food.

How about some nice Thai food?

Yeah, yeah, hold on.

Buddy, I'm waiting all day here.

Finger. Where's the cab?

Car's running fine.

Fine. What "fine"?

I know you. "Fine" ain't in your vocabulary.

You can tell your old buddy Finger what happened.

What? You save the planet?

You dinged the fender again. That's it, right?

I was on my way to see you, and a fare fell in my lap.

One of these big fares you can't resist.

How big?

Five-nine... blue eyes... long legs, great skin.

You know? Perfect.

I see.

And this perfect fare, she got a name?


What's she doing?

Learning our history, the last 5,000 years that she missed.

She's been asleep for a while.

I know she's been through a lot, but we don't have much time.

You're right.




I'm really sorry to interrupt you, but... the case... with the stones... where is it?


Who in God's name would do such a thing?

Excuse me, sir.

The council is worried about the economy heating up.

Is it possible to fire 500,000?

I thought from a smaller company, like one of the cab companies.

Fire one million.

But 500,000--

One million.

Fine, sir.

Sorry to have disturbed you.

It's for the Supreme...


I didn't know your size, and I found you this makeup box.

You just put it like that.

Yes, there was a man with a limp... came here a month ago asking about the stones.

Said he was an art dealer.

What was his name?

I'm bad with names.

They really make her-- Perfect, I know.

What'd she say?

She says she knows exactly where they are.

My dear Aknot, how about those two planes you borrowed?

Aknot, is that you?

What an ugly face.

It doesn't suit you.

Take it off.

That's better.

Never be ashamed of who you are.

You're warriors. Be proud.

So what if the federal government scattered you to the wind.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

Your time for revenge is at hand.

The ZF-1.

It's light. The handle's adjustable for easy carrying.

Breaks down into four parts, undetectable by X-ray. Discreet.

A word on fire power:

Titanium recharger, 3,000-round clip, with bursts of 3 to 300.

With the replay button, a Zorg invention, it's even easier.

One shot... and replay sends every following shot to the same location.

And to finish the job, all the Zorg oldies but goldies.

Rocket launcher.

Arrow launcher... with exploding or poisonous heads.

Very practical.

Net launcher.

The flamethrower.

My favorite.

And for the grand finale... the new Ice Cube System.

Four full crates... delivered right on time.

And what about you, dear Aknot?

Did you bring what I asked?




This case is empty.


Empty... the opposite of full.

This case is supposed to be full!

Anyone care to explain?

The Guardians gave the stones to someone they could trust.

Who took another route.

She's supposed to contact this person... in a hotel.

And she's looking for the address.



It's Planet Fhloston, in the Angel Constellation.

We're saved.

I'm screwed.

You asked for a case. We brought one.

A case with four stones in it!

Not one or two or three, but four!

Four stones!

But what the hell am I supposed to do with an empty case?

We are warriors, not merchants.

But you can still count! Look at my fingers.

Four stones, four crates.

Zero stones, zero crates!

Pack everything up! We're out of here!

We risked our lives.

I believe a little compensation is in order.

So you are merchants after all.

Leave him one crate for the cause.

I don't like warriors.

Narrow-minded, no subtlety... and they fight for hopeless causes, honor.

Honor's killed millions of people. Hasn't saved a single one.

I'll tell you what I do like: a killer.

A dyed-in-the-wool killer, cold-blooded, clean and methodical.

A real killer picking up the ZF-1... would've asked about the red button on the bottom of the gun.

Bring me the priest.

I got everything we need to know about Fhloston Paradise... and a blueprint of the hotel.

Good work, my son. Now to find a way there.

It won't be easy. There's a charity ball tomorrow.

Flights are full, and the hotel will be guarded.

There must be a way.

I'll get it.


Not really.

Mr. Zorg would like to talk to you. Who?

Mr. Zorg.




It's nice to see you again, Father.

I remember you now.

The so-called art dealer.

I'm glad you got your memory back.

Because you'll need it.

Where are the stones?

I don't know.

If I did, I wouldn't tell someone like you.


What's wrong with me?

I try to serve life.

But you only... want to destroy it.

Father... you're so wrong.

Let me explain.

Life, which you so nobly serve, comes from destruction and chaos.

Take this empty glass.

Here it is, peaceful... boring.

But if it is... destroyed.

Look at all these little things. So busy now.

Notice how each is useful.

What a lovely ballet ensues... so full of form and color.

Now think of all those people that created them.

Technicians, engineers. People who can feed their children tonight... so those children can grow up and have children... and so on.

Thus adding to the great chain... of life.

Water. Fruit.

You see, Father, by creating a little destruction...

I'm encouraging life.

In reality, you and I are in the same business.


Where's the robot to pat you on the back?

Or the engineer?

Or their children, maybe?

There, you see how all your so-called power counts for nothing?

How your entire empire of destruction comes... crashing down... all because of one, little... cherry.

You saved my life... and in return, I'll spare yours... for now.

You're a monster, Zorg.

I know.

Torture who you have to, the President, I don't care.

Just bring me the stones.

You have one hour.

It's gobbling up all the satellites in the galaxy.

Why is it eating up all the satellites?

We're working on it.

The Mondoshawan deplore the incident but accept our apologies.

And the stones? Did you find them?

They weren't on board.


The Mondoshawan never fully trusted the human race.

They gave them to someone they do trust.

Her name is Plavalaguna. She's a diva.

She's singing at a charity ball in Fhloston Paradise.

She has the stones.

The Mondoshawans will help.

We must send someone... to get the stones.


I want this operation to be as discreet as possible.

No troops. No big operation.

I want your best man to go undercover.

I have the perfect one.

You've got a message.

Not opening it? Could be important.

Like the last two were important.

First one was from my wife telling me she's leaving.

The second was from my lawyer telling me he was leaving with my wife.

That is bad luck.

Grandfather say...

"It never rain everyday." This is good news, guaranteed.

I bet you lunch.


Come on.

"You are fired."

Oh, I'm sorry.

At least I won lunch.

Good philosophy.

See good in bad. I like.

Hello. Korben, sweetheart.

You got broken fingers? You can't punch my number?

Hi, Mom.

Seventeen messages.

Don't say your machine is broken again. They last 1,000 years.

Mr. Kim, you should go.

This'll take a minute.

You don't feed your cat a croquette, who you love more than me.

She didn't breast-feed you. I did.

Good fortune for you.

You don't have a girl. I'll never be a grandmother.

It bring you good luck!

My body's failing. Take me on this trip.

What are you talking about?

You want to make me beg?

No, all I want is an explanation.

I just got in.

I just smashed my cab. I lost my job. I got mugged.

Besides that, everything's peachy.

Thanks for asking.

Now settle down and explain this to me.

You don't know you won a trip... to Fhloston Paradise for two for ten days?

I suppose you'll just leave me on the lunar surface?

If I'd won a trip, I'd know.

I would've been notified.

They've been blaring your name out on the radio for an hour.

I'll call you back.

General, how nice to see you in the 5000 block.

Nice apartment.

You've settled into a wonderful life.

Heard you lost your job.

You heard that?

Don't worry. I'll get another job.

Don't bother. We have one for you.

"Major Dallas... you've been selected for a mission."

What mission? To save the world.

"You leave for Fhloston Paradise.

Get four stones from the diva Plavalaguna and bring them back."

Any questions?

Why me? I retired six months ago. Remember?

Three reasons.


As a member of the Elite Special Forces Unit... you are an expert in the use of all necessary weapons and spacecraft.

Two: You're the most highly decorated member of your unit.

The third?

Of all the members of your unit, you're the only one left alive.

Check your messages?

I've had enough good news.

Might be important.

You're a winner!

You've won the Gemini Contest and a trip to Fhloston Paradise for two.

Here are your tickets.

You rigged the contest?


You couldn't be more discreet?

Old tricks are the best tricks.

Major Iceborg will accompany you as your wife.

I am not going.

Why not?

Excuse me, General.

Who is it?

Who is it?

My wife.

You remarried?

Yes... no. I just met this girl, but I'm going to marry her.

I love her, but she hates the military.

She knows the military ruined my last marriage.

She can't have anything to do with it.

If she sees you, she'll kill me.

Major-- You gotta hide somewhere.

You've gotta help me.

We'd love to, but where can we hide?

We don't have time for this.

It's just for one minute.

You have no idea how much you're helping me.

No idea-- You have no idea.

I'm going to be happily married. Major! Major!

The three of us won't fit. Sure you will.


You're on my foot.

Major! Major!

I'm really sorry to resort to this, Mr. Wallace--


We heard about your good luck and need your tickets for Fhloston.

Is this the way priests vacation?

We're on a mission.

What kind?

We have to save the world, my son.

You're gonna save the world?


Down there. Down there.

This is a police control.

This is not an exercise.

Come on, get in. For one minute, all right?

Just stay here for one minute.

This is a police control. Don't touch anything.

This is not an exercise.

Can you please spread your legs... and place your hands in the yellow circles.

What are you doing? Saving you so you can save the world.

Yeah, but I--

I think this is the door. No name, no number.

Let's see it.

Are you classified as human?

Negative. I am a meat Popsicle.

I found him.

Mr. Korben Dallas?

Sir, can you put your hands in the yellow circles, please?

Smoke you!

Wrong answer.

The police control is now terminated.

Thank you for your cooperation. Have a nice day.

We got the guy. Wasn't easy but we bagged him.

Thanks for the tip. Glad to be of help, my friend.

The guy's been arrested for uranium smuggling.

All I have to do now is go to the airport, take his place... and I'll be in Fhloston in four hours.

Don't come back without the stones.

We got Korben Dallas.


Akanit, take command.

Go to Fhloston and get the stones.

If Zorg really wants them... he'll have to negotiate.

Revenge is at hand.

Oh, I am so sorry.

I forgot about the autowash.

There's an autowash in that shower.

I'm so sorry.


Autowash, yes. Autowash, in the shower.

It's funny. I've met you twice today.

Both times you've ended up in my arms.

It's my lucky day.

Lucky day.

Did you hear something?



I'm so sorry. I don't need your help.

Want a cup of coffee? Yes, please.


Coffee's not my specialty.

But you must drink a lot of coffee being a priest.

I know. I'm not proud of what I did. I had no choice.

I'll take the mission.

Did you get them? Yeah.


"Leeloo Dallas." "Multi-pass."

"Korben David Dallas." Perfect.

I can't be your husband. I'm too old.

Now David is... in great shape. he'll protect you.

Now, please, go to the Diva, collect the stones and meet me at the temple.

Now. Yes.


Last call for Fhloston Paradise. Hurry.

The tickets.

ID, please. I'm sorry.

There. In here?

Mr. Dallas?

Congratulations on the contest.

Oh, right. Okay.

Sorry for the mess. The mess?

The garbage.

Made it!

I was afraid I wouldn't make it... so I sent David to pick up my boarding pass.

Now David must go.

Thank you. Bye.

I am Korben Dallas.

Please report infractions immediately to the spaceport.

And this is?

Leeloo Dallas. Multi-pass.


She knows it's a multi-pass.

My wife. We're newlyweds. Just met.

Bump into each other, sparks happen-- She knows.

Anyway, we're in love.

I mean, I know she's made to be strong.

She's also so fragile, so human. You know what I mean?

You want more? Yeah.

Make that two.

Where's Leeloo? On the plane with Mr. Dallas.


I didn't know what to do.

But this is not possible.

This is not possible.

You want some more?

This is all my fault.

It is my mission. I shouldn't have given it to you.

I know.

The key to the temple. Oh, no.

Prepare for our arrival. I go to face my destiny.

I don't want to go to Egypt.

Dallas? Korben Dallas?

That's me.

Just a minute, please.

It will just take one more minute.

We'll be right back.

Mr. Dallas... we really need you now.

Ruby Rhod is broadcasting live and needs to interview you.


Tell Aknot that plan A flopped. Go to plan B.

Aliens ahead. Spread out.

Backup unit, zone 18.

Ruby Rhod is the biggest radio star. It's an honor to be on his talk show.

He's so green.

I'm sure you're excited.

I'm on vacation and don't want to be bothered.

I prefer to remain anonymous.

Korben Dallas!

Here he is! The winner of the Gemini Croquette Contest.

This boy is fuelled like fire, so start melting, ladies...

'cause he is hotter than hot. He's hot, hot, hot!

The right size, the right build, the right hair, the right on.

Right on.

And he's got something to say... to those 50 billion pairs of ears out there.

Pop it, D-man.



Quiver, ladies. He's going to set the world on fire.

Right here from five to seven.

You'll know everything there is to know about the D-man.

His dreams... his desires... his most intimates of intimates.

And from what I'm looking at, intimate is his middle name.

So tell me, my man... you nervous in the service?

Not really.

Freeze those knees 'cause Korben's in the place and he's on the case.

Yesterday's frog will be tomorrow's Prince... of Fhloston Paradise!

The hotel of a thousand and one follies and lollies.

A magic fountain flowing with nonstop wine, women and... hootchie-kootchie-koo... all night long.

All night long All night

Start licking stamps, girls, because he'll have you writing home to Mama.

Here from five to seven, I'll be your voice, your tongue.

On the trail of the sexiest man of the year: D-man, your man...

my man.

End of transmission.

See you tomorrow at five.

How was it?

It was just absolutely green.

Green like what?

Crystal green.

Any kind of green you want... tree green, emerald, pond green.

Korben, sweetheart, what was that? It was bad! It had nothing!

No fire! No energy! I have a show to run here.

It must pop, pop, pop!

So tomorrow, from five to seven... please act like you have more than a two-word vocabulary.

It must be green! Okay? Okay?

Can I talk to you for a second? Just talk to you?

I didn't come here to play Pumba on the radio.

Tomorrow, from five to seven, you'll give yourself a hand.


Super green.

Dallas? Korben Dallas?

That's me.

I only have one Korben Dallas on my list, and he's checked in.

That's impossible. I am Korben Dallas.

Sorry, sir. Boarding is finished.

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait!

I need to talk to someone!

I don't believe this!

This is not an exercise. This is a police control.

I'm sorry. I'm calm.

There's been a mistake. There's been a mistake.

To make your flight short... flight attendants are switching on the sleep regulator... which will regulate your sleeping during the flight.

Thank you.


You speak English. Yes. I learn.


We are not on vacation.

I'm on an important mission. I work for some important people.

If I hadn't come to get you, you'd be in trouble.



But you, no trouble.

Me, Fifth Element.

Supreme Being.

Me protect you.


Sweet dreams, Mr. Dallas.

Sleep regulator operative in zone one.

Thank you.

Are you operative?

Zone two?

Everything's ready, Captain.


Assume your individual position.

But I want all positions!

Mr. Rhod--

Parasites in landing gear.

Ground, copy?

Got it. Front gear.

Hey, man, give me some heat, man!

We need some heat here! Get some heat!

Some heat over here, man!

Good shit, man. Put the heat over here!

Thank you! Thank you very much!

Come, come. Give me this. Give me this.

Take that.

Mr. Rhod!

You can call me Ruby.

Fueled and ready to go.

I'll buy you one.

Taken off already?

I'm not on the plane.


The real Dallas took my place.

I don't understand.

Are you making fun of me?

No, no, no! I swear! I swear!

I never felt this way before with a human.


I've tried everything. There's no way to get on the plane.

Ground is clear.

Ready for liftoff?


Not there. No, please, not there. Please, not there.

Power pressure? Primed.

Protection? Confirmed.

Power increase.

Ten seconds.

I am... a little... disappointed.


If there is one thing I do not like...

3... it is to be...

2... disappointed.


Sorry, it will never happen again.

I know.


Landing gear secure. Checklist for light speed.

We're finally getting something.

It's sending radio wavelengths.

What does it want with radio waves?

Maybe it wants to make a call.

Zorg's office.

I told you I did not want to be disturbed.

You don't want to be disturbed except if it's Mr. Shadow... and Mr. Shadow's on the line.

It's Shadow again.

Zorg here.

Am I disturbing you?

No, no, I was just--

Where are you?

Not far now.


Good, good.

How are the stones?

Fine. Fine. Just fine.

I'll have the four stones you asked for any time now... but it wasn't easy.

My costs have tripled.

Money is of no... importance.

I... want... the stones.

The stones... will be here.

I'll see to it personally.

I will be among you... soon.

We lost it.

We lost the signal.


We've begun our descent toward Fhloston Paradise.

The local time is 3:20 p.m.

Auto-temperature is currently 85 degrees Fahrenheit.

We hope you enjoyed your flight and hope to see you again soon.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to paradise.

Excuse me, dear. Excuse me. Excuse me, please.

Parasites in the main ventilation.

Again? I'll get it.

Have we arrived yet?

Oh, good.

We have twelve swimming pools and two on the rooftop.

All the restaurants are between levels two and ten.

The planet Fhloston has 400 beaches, all accessible until 5 p.m... then the airship goes higher... to offer you a better view.

Is the Diva here?

Not yet.

Any tickets left for the opera?

You have a seat reserved, front row... next to Ruby Rhod!

He's so talented. I love him. He's so sexy.

He has your ticket, and he'll be here in 20 minutes.

Where can I get something to wear?

Enjoy your evening, Mr. Dallas. Thank you.

You miserable bastard, I never should've pushed you out.

I was in labor for days, and this is how you repay me?

I should've gotten a robot.

Come on, Ma.

I should be there, not you. I need a tan.

I need a cocktail.

Get the case in.

Hello, Ms. Diva. I'm Fog.

Welcome to the-- I'm security.

Welcome to the--


Can I talk to you? Sure. Yeah.

What's your name? Fog.

Ms. Plavalaguna is glad that you are here.

She'll give you what you've come to get after the concert.

Stay here.

You're listening to Radio Cosmos. It is 5 p.m.

Helm to 108.

Helm 108!

Helm to 108.

Time to join Ruby Rhod... and Korben Dallas, the lucky winner... of the Gemini Croquette contest.

Coming at you live from Fhloston...


Ruby Rhod at your service with Korben and the manager of this hotel... and Miss Gemini Croquette in person... and 8,000 other lucksters here... to enjoy the privilege of the unique concert of Miss Plavalaguna!

Now we enter what must be... the most beautiful concert hall of all the universe!

A perfect replica of an old opera house... but who cares?

To my right, a row of ministers, more sinisters than ministers.

To my left, Baby Ray, star of stage and screen.

He's not going to get much out of this concert. He's stone-deaf!

To who?

And here we have Roy Von Baker, king of laser ball.

The Emperor of Kodar Japhet and his lovely daughter.

"I love to sing," she recently confessed to me.

By the way, I have a recording of her talented voice.

I'll play the rest after the concert. Now it's time... for Korben to say the word of the day.

Tell me, my man, you happy here in the big world?


And now... champagne!

Commercial! Commercial!

Break for 30 seconds.

Show time.

I have a ship in trouble requesting permission to dock.

Put him in the docking garage. Inform security.

Permission granted for one hour. More than I need.

Champagne for the Diva.

I'll take it.

I found it.

Get her!

It was an ambush.

If it's war they want... it's war they'll get!

Bravo! Bravo!

Bravo! Bravo!

My compliments, little lady.

Thank you for doing the dirty work.

I couldn't have done a better job myself.

Hand over the stones.

Nobody move! I'm taking over the ship!

Hands up!

I know this music.

Let's change the beat.

I think we're being attacked.

They're everywhere.

I see one of them. They're warriors, and they're ugly.

They got big teeth, and they got big foreheads, and they stink.


The government sent me to help you.

If somebody hears this, come and get me.

I'm in the first row.

You must give her the stones.


The Fifth Element.

The Supreme Being sent to Earth to save the universe.


But she's more fragile than she seems.

She needs your help... and your love... or... she will die.

Stay with me.


If you want something done... do it yourself.

Come on, honey. You can't die.

Wake up! Where are the stones?

Where are the stones?

The stones.

They're not here.

The stones, where are they?

In me.


Oh, my God, Korben.

Korben, another one coming.

I think we should go. One minute. One minute.

Hey, you!

I said you.

I'm not with him. Where's the other?

I said, "one minute."

Ruby, hold this gun.

What do you want me to do?

Come on.

Put your hand on it.

What do I do? If he moves, squeeze the trigger.

I don't feel right.

I don't feel right. The stones are "in me."

I got a headache. This ain't me.


Think he'll be okay?

Oh, my God, Korben. Another one coming.

Shit. Three coming.

You guard this with your life... or you'll look like him. You green?


Super green?

Is that your idea of a discreet operation?

Don't worry. I know my man. He'll calm things down.

Move! Move!

Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

Ladies and gentlemen... this is amazing.

Let me do it.

Oh, my God.

Korben Dallas, my man, is in trouble.

The gun!

Give me the gun.

I'm going to go... and try to see if I can see something a little closer.

Yes, the gun. Yeah.

Thanks, Ray.

Don't shoot! Don't shoot! I'm not armed!

Get up!

You've got the wrong guy! Don't shoot!

I'm not armed.

Oh, my God.

I'm on vacation.

Don't shoot me, please. I'm on a vacation.

I won a... contest.

Gemini Croquette's to...

Fhloston Paradise.


Wait a minute.

Get down!

He's trying to say something.


Sorry, my man.

Where are you?

Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

They're coming. They're coming.

Don't move.

What you doing?

Count to ten.

Was that a bomb? Shut up and count!

3! 4! 5!


7, 8...



I am... very disappointed.

Korben, what are you looking for?

Control room.

This is it. I'll be here.

Let's go.

Quiet! Quiet!

You in charge?

How many are out there?

I don't know. Let's count.

Seven on the left. Five on the right.

Four on the right. Two on the left.

Find the leader. They won't fight without the leader.

One more shot and we start killing hostages.

That's the leader.

Send someone to negotiate.

I've never negotiated.

You mind if I try?

We're sending somebody to negotiate.

Anybody else want to negotiate?

Where did he learn to negotiate like that?

I wonder.

Where's Ruby?

I thought he was dead.


It was nothing, really. Just a helping hand.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is Ruby Rhod... still alive.

What's wrong with you?

It hurt!

I realize that you must be pretty mad at me... but I'm fighting for a noble cause.

Yes, you're trying to save the world. I remember.

Right now, I'm trying to save Leeloo.

Leeloo's in trouble?

When is Leeloo not in trouble?

Where's that? The Diva's suite.

Hang on.

Here, come on.

How do you get yourself into these positions?

Come on.

I'm here. It's all right. Everything's okay now.


I got the stones. Just take it easy, all right?

My man, my man, what's this thing with all these numbers?

If it was a bomb... the alarms would go off because all these hotels have bomb detectors.

This is a type "A" alert.

For security reasons, the hotel must be evacuated.

Proceed calmly to the lifeboats...

Stay calm!

...located in the main hallways.

Stay calm!

You know how to stop this, right?

Two minutes to complete evacuation.

Get back!

Evacuation! Evacuation!

Sorry, you can't stay here. There's a bomb in the hotel.

I know.

I don't want to die.

Please, my son.

Get in.

One minute to total evacuation.

This one.

45 seconds.

Get her strapped in.

You know how to fly this?

Like driving a cab.

How will we get out the door?

15 seconds.


9, 8...




For the honor.

Hold on.

Like driving a cab.

It is now 7 p.m., time for the news.

See you tomorrow for a new adventure.

End of transmission.

That's the best show I ever did.

Major Dallas has the five elements on board... and the priest is guiding them to the temple.

We're saved.

The Diva said I should take care of you.

Humans act so strange.

What do you mean?

Everything you created... is used to destroy.

We call it human nature.

You learn that on your screen?

I'm not finished yet. I'm up to "V."

"V" is good.

Some good words in "V."

Like what?



"Very beautiful."

Oh, of course, Munro!

Mr. President?

Now what?

We have a problem.

It's advancing?

It's not only advancing, it's moving at incredible speed.

And do you have any idea where it's heading?

Korben, there's a general on the phone.

I'll give you the President.

Major Dallas, I first would like to salute a warrior.

You're a shining example of this army.

In the name of the Federation--

Any idea when you'll get to the point?

A ball of fire 1,200 miles in diameter heading straight for earth... and we have no idea how to stop it. That's the problem.

How much time do we have?

If its speed remains constant, in an hour and 57 minutes.

I'll call you back in two hours.


They just landed in the desert.

Good job, David.

Put her in the center. Where? Here?

You got it figured out, Father?

This one should be fire.

You know how this works? Theoretically.

The four stones should go around.

The Fifth Element should be in the middle... and then the weapon against evil should work.

You've never seen this work?

Give me that.

Every weapon has a manual. I'm sure this has one too.

That's it. That's it.

Match up the symbols. Go! Go!


My man, what you doing?

What? What you doing?

Trying to keep you in the D.J. business.



What happens?

So, now, we have to open them.

And you know how to do that. Right?



Leeloo, honey, wake up.

You have to help us.

How do you open the stones?

Wind blows.

Fire burns.

Yes, I know all that. But how do you open these stones?



What does it mean?

I think that--

Maybe it's a charade.

A game or something.

If we don't get these stones open in five minutes, we're dead.

Dead? Yes, dead.

Too late.

We've lost contact with them.

Three minutes.

I think mine is broken.

Why I gotta get the broke one?

We're never gonna make it.

It moved.

Show me what you did. Nothing.

Shut up, shut up!

Show me what you did, step-by-step.

I was standing here. Quickly.

I put my hands on the top like this, and I said...

"We're not going to make it."

And that's it?

Korben, my man.


She said, "Wind blows."

Everyone take a stone.

Water for water. Fire for fire. Earth for Earth. Go!


Open the other one.

Korben, my man, I have no fire.

I have no matches. Do you have any?

I stopped smoking. Father, you smoke?

Got some matches? We need some fire.

We're going to die.

Don't breathe.


One minute.

Let's go, Leeloo.

Wake up. Wake up. It's time for you to work now.

Protect life... until death.

Listen to me!

Listen to me.

Listen, I know you're very tired.

I'll take you on vacation. A real vacation, just you and me.

But if you don't do something right now... we'll all die.

What's the use of saving life when you see what you do with it?

It'll enter the atmosphere in 40 seconds.

You're right. You're right.

There are some things... very nice things worth saving; beautiful things.

Beautiful things.

Like love?

Yes, love. That's good. That's good.

That's a good example. Love is worth saving.

I don't know love.

I don't know love.

I was built to protect, not love.

So there's no use for me other than this.

You're wrong. You're wrong. You're wrong.

I need you.

I need you, very much.


Because... because...

Tell her, Korben.

Tell me.


Why you need me?


Tell me.

Tell me. Because I--

Because I love you.

I love you.





6, 5...

4, 3...



Scanner imaging has confirmed the dark planet dead.

The planet seems to have stopped at 62 miles from impact.

What's wrong? What you screaming for?

Every five minutes it's a bomb or something.

I'm leaving.

Mr. President.

Let me introduce Professor Mactilburgh who runs the center.

It's an honor, Mr. President.

Where are my two heroes?

They were so tired from their ordeal, we put them in the reactor.

I have 19 meetings after this.

Let me see if they're revived.

Thank you.

We go live in one minute.

They're... not ready.

They need... five more minutes.

You have 20 seconds.

No, ma'am, I tried. No, ma'am.

Who's that?

Some woman. Claims to be Korben's mother.

Give it here.

Mrs. Dallas, this is the President.

On behalf of the Federation--

That doesn't even sound like him.

The President's an idiot. You don't sound like an idiot.

If you don't want to talk to your mother... just avoid me as usual.

I'll throw myself in traffic. I'll Saran Wrap myself to the bed.
