Dione: [When Kassim is shown his reflection] He's weeping
Melanthius: Extraordinary, a normal babboon wouldn't have reconised its reflection and attacked it thinking it was another babboon
Maroof: My thirst is the thirst of a thousand men!
Sinbad: Stop and drink and I promise you will go no further. Remember the last time?
Hassan: You were stripped off all your possessions.
Aboo-Seer: Because of that, I added four more eunuchs to the population.
Zenobia: Sail for Rhodes or Tripoli, captain. You'll find richer cargo there. Set sail in search of Melanthius and you'll set a course for Hell and damnation.
Hassan: Come on! Come on, come on, boys. Hey, captain, why the haste? The city will not vanish.
Aboo-Seer: It's not the city of Charak he wishes to see, but someone who dwells within.
Sinbad: After a long voyage, it is good to stretch one's legs.
Hassan: The only good thing about this port is the inn of Abu Jamil the Squint, who, for six months, I have been dreaming of his roasted sheep's eyes.
Aboo-Seer: And I the eyes of his daughter.
Sinbad: You were dreaming of more than her eyes.
Sinbad: Is there another way into the town?
Rafi: No. But if you wish to take the risk, you may enter at daybreak when the curfew is lifted. Until then, I can only offer to relieve your disappointment. My tent has wine, food, and music. My people are your servants. Please, be welcome. Come.
Farah: Let me cut the smile from her face! Let me go! Let me go!
Balsora: You will bring an eternal curse on all our heads if you draw one drop of blood from any member of the royal family.
Farah: It's only for that she hasn't murdered Kassim. As cunning as a snake, as malicious as a shark. But Rafi will never be caliph!
Zenobia: There is no one to prevent it.
Farah: Melanthius will prevent it!
Melanthius: No, no, no, no. If you study my design, you'll see there's more curve in the runners. The snow will be deep.
Hassan: But I have never seen snow, master.
Maroof: Allah be with you. All the paradise I seek is here. Who wants anything more? I shall stay behind.
[Maroof gyrates along with a belly dancer]
Melanthius: Oh, thank all the gods.
Zenobia: The gods have abandoned you! Too late, Sinbad. Kassim will never be caliph!
