Labyrinth (1986)
Jareth: I ask for so little. Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave.

Jareth: And Hoggle, if she ever kisses you, I'll turn you into a prince.
Hoggle: Y-you will?
Jareth: Prince of the Land of Stench!
[laughs]

Jareth: You have thirteen hours in which to solve the labyrinth, before your baby brother becomes one of us... forever.

Jareth: Ah, what have we here?
Hoggle: Oh, uh, nothin'.
Jareth: [removing his disguise at the last second] Nothing? Nothing? NOTHING? Nothing, tra la la?

Jareth: I've brought you a gift.
Sarah: What is it?
Jareth: It's a crystal. Nothing more. But if you turn it this way and look into it, it will show you your dreams. But this is not a gift for an ordinary girl who takes care of a screaming baby.

Jareth: You remind me of the babe.
Goblin: What babe?
Jareth: The babe with the power.
Goblin: What power?
Jareth: The power of voodoo.
Goblin: Who do?
Jareth: You do.
Goblin: Do what?
Jareth: Remind me of the babe.

Jareth: Everything I've done, I've done for you. I move the stars for no one.

Jareth: Your eyes can be so cruel, just as I can be so cruel.

Jareth: Sarah, go back to your room. Play with your toys and your costumes. Forget about the baby.

Sarah: Give me the child.
Jareth: Sarah, beware. I have been generous up 'til now. I can be cruel.
Sarah: Generous? What have you done that's generous?
Jareth: *Everything*! Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken. I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for *you*! I am exhausted from living up to your expectations. Isn't that generous?

Jareth: Higgle...
Hoggle: Hoggle!
Jareth: Yes, If I thought that for one second that you would betray me, I would be forced to suspend you, head first, in the Bog of Eternal Stench.
Hoggle: [falls to his knees] Oh no! Your Majesty, not the eternal stench!
Jareth: Oh, yes!

Jareth: [to Toby] In 9 hours and 23 minutes... you'll be mine.

Jareth: Hello, Hedgewart.
Sarah: Hogwart.
Hoggle: Hog-gle!

Sarah: That's not fair!
Jareth: You say that so often, I wonder what your basis for comparison is?

Sarah: You're him, aren't you? You're the Goblin King! I want my brother back, please, if it's all the same.
Jareth: What's said is said.
Sarah: But, I didn't mean it.
Jareth: Oh, you didn't?

Jareth: Tell me Sarah, what do you think of my labyrinth?

Jareth: Turn back, Sarah. Turn back before it's too late.
Sarah: I can't. Don't you understand I can't?
Jareth: What a pity.

Jareth: So, the Labyrinth is a piece of cake, is it? Well, let's see how you deal with this little slice...

Jareth: How you turn my world, you precious thing.

Jareth: It's only forever, not long at all.

Jareth: Well? Laugh.

Jareth: [the Owl flies away] You remind me of the babe.
Goblin: What babe?
Jareth: The babe with the power.
Goblin: What power?
Jareth: The power of voodoo.
Goblin: Who do?
Jareth: You do.
Goblin: Do what?
Jareth: Remind me of the babe...
[End titles]
Jareth: Daddy, daddy, get me out of here. Heard about a place to stay. I, I'm underground. Nothing ever hurts again. Heard about a place to stay. Daddy, get me out of here. Where nothing ever hurts again. Daddy, daddy, get me out of here. I, I'm underground. Sister, sister, please take me down. I, I'm underground. Daddy, daddy, get me out of here. No one can blame you for walking away. Too much rejection. No love injection. Life can't be easy. It's not always swell. Don't tell me truth hurts, little girl, 'cause it hurts like hell, but down in the underground you'll find someone true.Down in the underground; a land serene; a crystal moon. Ah... It's only forever. Not long at all. Lost and lonely. That's underground. Underground. Daddy, daddy, get me out of here. Heard about a place to stay. I, I'm underground. Nothing ever hurts again.

Wanna live underground. Wanna live underground. Wanna live underground. Wanna live underground. Wanna live underground...

Jareth: She's in the oubliette.
[goblins laugh]
Jareth: Shut up! She should not have gotten as far as the oubliette; she should've given up by now.
Goblin: She'll never give up.
Jareth: Will she? The dwarf's about to lead her back to the beginning. She'll soon give up when she realizes she has to start all over again. Ha ha ha... well? laugh!
[goblins laugh]

Guard: Your Highness! Your Highness! Your Highness, the girl! The girl who ate the peach and forgot everything!
Jareth: What of her?
Guard: She, the monster, Sir Didymus, and the dwarf, they made it through the gate and they're on their way to the castle!
Jareth: What? Stop her! Call out the guards!
[to goblin]
Jareth: Take the baby and hide it.
Goblin: Guards!
Jareth: She must be stopped! Do something! Come on, move! Move!

Sarah: Through dangers untold. And hardships unnumbered. I have fought my way here to the castle; beyond the goblin city, to take back the child that you have stolen. My will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom as great...
Jareth: Stop! Look what I'm offering you. Your dreams.
Sarah: My kingdom as great... my kingdom as great... damn, I can never remember that line.
Jareth: I ask for so little. Just fear me. Love me. Do as I ask, and I shall be your slave.
Sarah: You have no power over me!
[echoes]
Sarah: [the clock chimes 13:00 at that moment. Defeated, Jareth sends Sarah and Toby back to the real world where the clock finishes chiming midnight]
