Princess Mononoke (1997)
San, The Princess Mononoke: Even if all the trees grow back, it won't be his forest anymore. The Forest Spirit is dead.
Prince Ashitaka: Never. He is life itself. He isn't dead, San. He is here with us now, telling us, it's time for both of us to live.

San, The Princess Mononoke: [seeing the humans cutting down trees] Why chop the trees down?
Moro: [about the boars] To make them angry. Which makes them stupid.

San, The Princess Mononoke: You two go on ahead. I'll stay here and deal with the human.
San's Wolf Brother: What about the elk?
San's Wolf Brother: Yes... Can we eat him?
[starts panting]
San, The Princess Mononoke: No, you may not. Go home!

San, The Princess Mononoke: [to the apes] All right, what do you want here?
San's Wolf Brother: Apes! How *dare* you show such disrespect to the wolf clan!
Ape Tribe: This is our forest. The human... Give him to us. Give us the human and go.
San's Wolf Brother: *You* go, before my *fangs* find you.
Ape Tribe: We will not go. We will eat the human. Yes... we will eat the man creature.

San, The Princess Mononoke: Ugh, I smell like a human.

Boar in Okkoto's Tribe: The Forest Spirit saved *him?* Saved the life of this loathsome runt? Why didn't he save Nago? Is he not the guardian of the forest? Why?
Moro: The Forest Spirit gives life and takes life away. Life and death are his alone. Or have you boars forgotten than?
Boar in Okkoto's Tribe: *You lie!* You must have begged the Forest Spirit to spare his life! But you did not beg for Nago, did you?
Moro: Nago was afraid to die. Now, I too, carry within my breast a poisoned human bullet. Nago fled, and the darkness took him. I remain, and contemplate my death.
San, The Princess Mononoke: Moro, please ask the Forest Spirit to save you!
Moro: I have lived long enough, San. Soon, the Great Forest Sprit will let me rest forever.
San, The Princess Mononoke: All these years, you've defended the Forest Spirit! He *must* save you!
Boar in Okkoto's Tribe: You are not fooling us! Nago was beautiful and strong! He would not have run from anything! You wolves must have eaten him!
San, The Princess Mononoke: Quiet! Watch what you say, you filthy pig!

San, The Princess Mononoke: Why did you stop me from killing her? Tell me while you're still alive!
Prince Ashitaka: I didn't want them to kill you. That's why.
San, The Princess Mononoke: I'm not afraid to die. I'd do anything to get you humans out of my forest!
Prince Ashitaka: I knew that... from the first moment I saw you.
San, The Princess Mononoke: And I'm not afraid of you! I should *kill* you for saving her!
[San turns Ashitaka around, takes out his sword, and aims it inches over his neck]
San, The Princess Mononoke: That woman is evil, and there's no one who can stop me from killing her.
Prince Ashitaka: No... Live...
San, The Princess Mononoke: That's enough! I'm not listening to you anymore!
[presses tip to throat]
Prince Ashitaka: [opening his eyes] You're... beautiful...
[San gasps, jumps back]
San's Wolf Brother: What is it, San? Want me to crunch his face off?
[all stare at Ashitaka for a moment... until a rock sails in and breaks the moment]

Moro: [about Ashitaka] You know, that boy wanted to share his life with you.
San, The Princess Mononoke: [burying her face in her fur] I hate him! I hate all humans!

San, The Princess Mononoke: [trapped in Okkoto's corruption] No! I don't wanna become a demon! Please stop, Okkoto!

San, The Princess Mononoke: Ashitaka, you mean so much to me, but I can't forgive the humans for what they've done.
Prince Ashitaka: I understand. You'll live in the forest, and I'll help rebuild Irontown.

[first lines]
San, The Princess Mononoke: Go away.

Prince Ashitaka: [Sees riflemen readying guns] It's a trap. No, wait! Princess of the wolf-gods, don't go down there! Go back to the forest! Listen to me, please, don't throw your life away!
Gonza: [Turns to Lady Eboshi] Shall I stop him?
Lady Eboshi: [Stares at wolf-girl and Ashitaka on the roof] Leave him be. Let him do as he likes.
San, The Princess Mononoke: [Wolf howls in distance, readies knife and charges down roof towards Lady Eboshi]
