The Thief of Bagdad (1940)
[At the pool]
Princess: Who are you?
Ahmad: Your slave.
Princess: Where have you come from?
Ahmad: From the other side of time, to find you.
Princess: How long have you been searching?
Ahmad: Since time began.
Princess: Now that you've found me, how long will you stay?
Ahmad: To the end of time.
Princess: For me, there can be no more beauty in the world, than yours.
Ahmad: For me, there can be no more pleasure in the world, than to please you.
Abu: I am Abu the thief, son of Abu the thief, grandson of Abu the thief.
Halima: Take my hand.
Ahmad: There is no need. My dog sees for me. He gives me more than he can ever receive - like all dogs.
Astrologer: But she loves the blind man.
Jaffar: Do you call the lisping of two children in the garden love? Love she has yet to learn and I have yet to teach her.
Jaffar: Forget Ahmad. He's no longer blind. For a man with eyes the world is full of women. Only I am cursed, that I can see only you.
Genie: You're a clever little man little master of the universe, but mortals are weak and frail. If their stomach speaks, they forget their brain. If their brain speaks, they forget their heart. And if their heart speaks
Genie: ... they forget everything.
Old Man: Now out of my way, you masters of a thousand fleas. Allah be with you, but I doubt it.
Ahmad: Oh ye, who Allah gave the gift of sight to fill your eyes with beauty and delight, spare me a thought to whom your wondrous world Is but a city of eternal night. Alms for the love of Allah.
Ahmad: Are men only to be ruled by fear?
Jaffar: Men are evil. Hatred behind their eyes, lies on their lips, betrayal in their hearts. You will learn one day, Great King, that there are three things that men respect: the lash that descends, the yoke that breaks, and the sword that slays. By the power and terror of these you may conquer the earth.
Princess: You don't look wicked. Are you a good djinni?
Ahmad: Not too good. Very good djinni are just as tiresome as very good men.
Abu: Where are we now ?
Genie: Above the roof... of the world
Abu: Has the world got a roof ?
Genie: Of course. Supported by seven pillars, and the seven pillars are set on the shoulders of a genie whose strength is beyond thought, and the genie stands on an eagle, and the eagle on a bull, and the bull on a fish, and the fish swims in the sea of eternity...
Jaffar: Why do you close your eyes? There's little time left to see him.
