Rapunzel: Who are you, and how did you find me?
Flynn Rider: [clears throat] I know not who you are, nor how I came to find you, but may I just say... Hi. How ya doin'?
Rapunzel: I've been looking out of a window for eighteen years, dreaming about what I might feel like when those lights rise in the sky. What if it's not everything I dreamed it would be?
Flynn Rider: It will be.
Rapunzel: And what if it is? What do I do then?
Flynn Rider: Well,that's the good part I guess. You get to go find a new dream.
Hook Hand Thug: Go, live your dream.
Flynn Rider: I will.
Hook Hand Thug: [Referring to Rapunzel] Your dream stinks. I was talking to her.
Rapunzel: [singing] Flower gleam and glow. Let your powers shine. Make the clock reverse. Bring back what once was mine. Heal what has been hurt. Change the fates' design. Save what has been lost. Bring back what once was mine, What once was mine...
Rapunzel: Who's that?
[the castle guards]
Flynn Rider: They don't like me.
Rapunzel: Who's that?
[the Stabbington brothers]
Flynn Rider: They don't like me either.
Rapunzel: And who's *that*?
Flynn Rider: Let's just assume for the moment that everyone in here doesn't like me!
Rapunzel: I can't believe I did this.
Rapunzel: I can't believe I did this. *I can't believe I did this!* Mother would be so furious. That's OK though, I mean what she doesn't know won't kill her. Oh my gosh. This would kill her. *This is so fun!* I, am a horrible daughter. I'm going back. *I am never going back!* I am a despicable human being. *Woo-hoo! Best. Day. Ever!*
Rapunzel: We made it.
Flynn Rider: Her hair glows!
Rapunzel: We're alive. We're alive!
Flynn Rider: I didn't see that coming.
Flynn Rider: The hair actually glows.
Flynn Rider: Why does her hair glow!
Flynn Rider: [almost in hysteria] What?
Rapunzel: It doesn't *just* glow.
Flynn Rider: [Pascal smiles at him smugly] Why is he smiling at me?
Flynn Rider: Oh... oh no... where is my satchel?
Rapunzel: [proudly] I've hidden it. Somewhere you'll never find it.
Flynn Rider: [Looks around the room for 2 seconds] It's in that pot, isn't it?
[Rapunzel hits him with her frying pan]
[looking in the mirror with Rapunzel]
Mother Gothel: Look in that mirror. I see a strong, confident, beautiful young lady.
Mother Gothel: Oh look, you're here too.
Flynn Rider: [from trailer] I didn't want to have to do this, but you leave me no choice. Here comes the smolder.
Thug: That's a lot of hair.
Flynn Rider: She's growing it out.
Rapunzel: So... Flynn. Where are you from?
Flynn Rider: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Sorry, Blondie. I don't do backstory, however I am becoming very interested in *yours.* I know I'm not supposed to ask about
[ticking off on fingers]
Flynn Rider: the hair...
- or the mother...
Flynn Rider: ...frankly, I'm too scared to ask about the frog.
Flynn Rider: Nuance!
Flynn Rider: You smell that? Take a deep breath through the nose.
[Breathes through nose]
Flynn Rider: Really let that seep in. What are you getting? Because to me, that's part man-smell, and the other part is really bad man-smell. I don't know why, but overall it just smells like the color brown. Your thoughts?
[Flynn Rider has found a wanted poster with a drawing of him on it]
Flynn Rider: They just can't get my nose right!
Flynn Rider: This is the story of how I died. Don't worry, this is actually a very fun story and the truth is, it isn't even mine. This is the story of a girl named Rapunzel.
Flynn Rider: Rapunzel?
Flynn Rider: Did I ever tell you I've got a thing for brunettes?
Flynn Rider: [Looks incredulously at his newly healed hand in disbelief and gasps in preparation for a scream]
Rapunzel: [quickly] Please don't freak out!
Flynn Rider: [Makes strange almost-freaking-out noises as a result of stopping himself from freaking out] I'm not freaking out, are you freaking out? No, I'm just very interested in your hair and the magical qualities that it possesses, how long has it been doing that, exactly?
[rocking back and forth with his hand on his face]
Flynn Rider: [after being dropped face-down on the floor] You broke my smolder!
Rapunzel: Something brought you here, Flynn Rider. Call it what you will... fate... destiny...
Flynn Rider: A horse.
Flynn Rider: [from trailer] I could get used to a view like this. Yep, I'm used to it. Guys I want a castle.
Flynn Rider: [Flynn looking at his 'Wanted' poster] No... no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, this is bad, this is very very bad, this is really bad... They just can't get my nose right!
Stabbington Brother: Who cares?
Flynn Rider: Well, it's easy for you to say...
[Looking at the Stabbington Brothers' 'Wanted' poster]
Flynn Rider: [in awe] ... You guys look amazing.
Hook Hand Thug: [During the 'I've Got A Dream' number] What about you?
Flynn Rider: I'm sorry, me?
Big Nose Thug: What's your dream?
Flynn Rider: No, no no. Sorry, boys. I don't sing.
[All swords are pointed at him, Flynn begins to dance and sing]
Flynn Rider: But I know what the big question is? Did Rapunzel and I ever get married? Well I am happy to say after years and years of asking, I finally said yes.
Flynn Rider: Okay, okay. I asked her.
Rapunzel: And we're living happily ever after!
Flynn Rider: Yes we are.
Flynn Rider: [sword-fighting with Maximus] You should know that this is the strangest thing I've ever done!
[Max flicks the frying-pan from Flynn's hands]
Flynn Rider: ... How 'bout best two out of three?
Rapunzel: Too weak to handle myself out there, huh, Mother?
[starts twirling frying pan]
Rapunzel: ...tell that to my frying pa...
[accidentally hits herself with pan]
Flynn Rider: The party lasted an entire week, and honestly, I don't remember most of it.
Rapunzel: [circling Flynn tied to a chair with her hair] So, what do you want with my hair? To cut it?
Flynn Rider: What?
Rapunzel: Sell it?
Flynn Rider: No! Listen, the only thing I want to do with your hair is to get out of it... lit-er-a-lly!
Mother Gothel: Great. Now *I'm* the bad guy.
Rapunzel: So mother, earlier I was saying tomorrow is a really big day, and you didn't really respond, so I'm just gonna tell you: IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! Tada!
Mother Gothel: No no no, can't be. I distinctly remember, your birthday was last year.
Rapunzel: That's the funny thing about birthdays, they're kind of an annual thing.
Flynn Rider: Let me just get this straight, I take you to see the lanterns, bring you back home, and you'll give me back my satchel?
Rapunzel: I promise.
[Flynn gives Rapunzel an unconvinced look]
Rapunzel: And when I promise something, I never ever break that promise.
[Flynn, raising one eyebrow, is still unconvinced]
Flynn Rider: All right, listen! I didn't want to have to do this, but you leave me no choice. Here comes the smolder.
[Flynn purses his lips in the hope of charming Rapunzel. She just gives him a stern look]
Flynn Rider: This is kind of an off-day for me, this doesn't normally happen.
Vlad: [Points at wanted poster of Flynn Rider] Is this you?
[Moves finger away to show a long nose on the poster]
Flynn Rider: Oh, now they're just being mean.
Flynn Rider: [to a thug] Is that blood in your mustache?
Flynn Rider: Goldie, look at this! Look at all the blood in his mustache! Good sir, that's a lot of blood!
[Rapunzel pulls Mother Gothel up the tower]
Rapunzel: Hi. Welcome home, Mother.
Mother Gothel: Oh! Rapunzel, how you manage to do that every single day without fail, it looks absolutely exhausting, darling!
Rapunzel: Oh, it's nothing.
Mother Gothel: Then I don't know why it takes so long.
Mother Gothel: Rapunzel, please, stop with the mumbling. You know how I feel about the mumbling. Blah blah blah blah blah, it's very annoying! I'm just teasing, you're adorable. I love you so much, darling.
Rapunzel: [there's a rustle in the bushes. Rapunzel jumps on Flynn's back, terrified] Is it ruffians? Thugs? Have they come for me?
Flynn Rider: [a cute little bunny hops out of the bushes] Stay calm. It can probably smell fear.
Flynn Rider: So! Hey can I ask you something? Is there any chance that I'm going to get super strength in my hand? Because I'm not gonna lie, that would be stupendous... Hey, you alright?
Rapunzel: [turns around] Oh. Sorry yes, just... lost in thought I guess.
Flynn Rider: [shrugs] I mean because here's the thing. Superhuman good looks, I've always had them. Born with it. But superhuman strength, can you imagine the possibilities of this?
Flynn Rider: Hey, Max!
[throws him a bag of apples as he, Rapunzel, and Pascal row out to see the floating lanterns. Max gets a suspicious look on his face]
Flynn Rider: What? I bought them!
[Maximus starts chomping away happily at his apples]
Flynn Rider: ... *most* of them!
[Maximus starts and his eyes widen]
Hook Hand Thug: Head down.
Flynn Rider: Head down.
Hook Hand Thug: Arms in.
Flynn Rider: Arms in.
Hook Hand Thug: Knees apart.
Flynn Rider: Knees apart... Knees apart?
Mother Gothel: [Rapunzel has just locked Flynn in her closet] Rapunzel! Let down your hair!
Rapunzel: One moment, Mother!
Mother Gothel: I have a big surprise!
Rapunzel: Uh... I do too!
Mother Gothel: Ooh, I'll bet my surprise is bigger!
Rapunzel: [to herself] I seriously doubt it.
Flynn Rider: Ha! You should see your faces because you look -
[crashes into a beam]
Flynn Rider: ... ridiculous.
Flynn Rider: [Referring to Pascal] Why is he smiling at me?
Short Thug: [about Mother Gothel] Whoaaaa! Somebody get me a glass! 'Cuz I just found me a tall drink of water.
Flynn Rider: So! You're being strangely cryptic as you wrap your magic hair around my injured hand.
Rapunzel: Sorry! Just, don't... don't freak out.
Flynn Rider: [eyes widen in anticipation of what is about to happen]
Flynn Rider: [clears throat] You know, I can't help but notice you seem a little at war with yourself here.
Flynn Rider: Now, I'm only picking up bits and pieces here, of course. Overprotective mother, forbidden road trip. I mean, this is serious stuff. But let me ease your conscience. This is part of growing up. A little rebellion, a little adventure, that's good. Healthy, even.
[brushes Pascal off his shoulder]
Rapunzel: [chuckles] You think?
Flynn Rider: I know. You're way over thinking this, trust me. Does your mother deserve it? No. Would this break her heart and crush her soul? Of course. But you've just got to do it.
Rapunzel: "Break her heart"?
Flynn Rider: [plucks grape off vine] In half.
Rapunzel: "Crush her soul"?
Flynn Rider: [squeezes grape] Like a grape.
Rapunzel: She would be heartbroken. You're right.
Flynn Rider: I am, aren't I? Oh, bother.
Flynn Rider: All right. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm letting you out of the deal.
Flynn Rider: That's right, but don't thank me. Let's turn around and get you home. Here's your pan, here's your frog.
[hands her pan and Pascal and puts arm around her]
Flynn Rider: I get back my satchel and you get back a mother-daughter relationship based on mutual trust, and violà, we part ways as unlikely friends.
Rapunzel: [pushes Flynn away] No. I am seeing those lanterns.
Flynn Rider: Oh, come on! What is it going to take for me to get my satchel back?
Rapunzel: [holds up frying pan] I will use this.
Mother Gothel: [singing] Mother knows best./Take it from your mumsy./On your own you won't survive./Sloppy, underdressed,/Immature, clumsy,/Please!/They'll eat you up alive!
Rapunzel: [Sung] I could go running/ and racing/ and dancing/ and chasing/ and leaping/ and bounding/ hair flying/ heart pounding/ and splashing/ and reeling/ and finally feeling/ now's when my life begins!
Rapunzel: [During the 'I See The Light' number; Rapunzel sees Flynn holding two lanterns for her and approaches him] I have something for you too.
[Rapunzel hands Flynn his satchel, Flynn looks surprised]
Rapunzel: I should have given it to you before, but I was scared. And the thing is, I'm not scared anymore. You know what I mean?
Flynn Rider: [Flynn gently pushes the satchel Rapunzel is holding in front of him aside and flashes a sincere smile] I'm starting to.
Rapunzel: [about Flynn] I think he likes me.
Mother Gothel: Likes you? Please, Rapunzel, that's demented!/ This is why you never should have left!/Dear, this whole romance that you've invented / Just proves you're too naive to be here./Why would he like you? Come on now, really./Look at you-you think that he's impressed?/Don't be a dummy, come with mummy./Mother...
Rapunzel: [retorts] No!
Mother Gothel: No? Oh. I see how it is. Rapunzel knows best; Rapunzel's so mature now./Such a clever grown-up miss./Rapunzel knows best. Fine, if you're so sure now,/Go ahead and give him this, huh?
[hands Rapunzel the satchel with the crown inside]
Rapunzel: How did you...
Mother Gothel: *This* is why he's here! Don't let him deceive you!/Give it to him, watch, you'll see!/Trust me, my dear, that's how fast he'll leave you./I won't say I told you so!/No, Rapunzel knows best!/Well, if he's such a dreamboat,/Go and put him to the test!/If he's lying, don't come crying/Mother... knows best!
Rapunzel: [to the group of thugs] Have some humanity. Haven't any of you ever had a dream?
Hook Hand Thug: [approaching her menacingly, then knowingly] I had a dream, once.
Flynn Rider: [Upon being chased by the Palace Guards, Flynn and the Stabbington Brothers reach a dead end. They are facing a cliff] All right, okay, give me a boost, and I'll pull you up.
Stabbington Brother: [the Stabbington Brothers look at each other] Give us the satchel first.
Flynn Rider: What? I just... I can't believe that after all we've been through together, you don't... trust me?
[the Stabbington Brothers look at Flynn straight in the eye and crickets chirp in the background]
Flynn Rider: Ouch.
[Flynn hands the satchel to them]
Stabbington Brother: [Flynn climbs up the Stabbington Brothers and reaches the top of the cliff] Now help us up, pretty boy.
Flynn Rider: Sorry... my hands are full.
[Flynn cockily shows them the satchel he had stolen from them while climbing up and runs off]
Flynn Rider: [after enlightening Rapunzel on his past] You can't tell anyone about this, okay? It could ruin my whole reputation.
Rapunzel: Ah, we wouldn't want that.
Flynn Rider: Well, a fake reputation is all a man has.
Rapunzel: Mother Gothel: Rapunzel? Rapunzel, what's going on up there? Are you alright?
Rapunzel: I'm the lost princess.
Mother Gothel: Mother Gothel: Oh, please speak up Rapunzel. You know how I hate the mumbling.
Rapunzel: Rapunzel: I am the lost princess, aren't I?... Did I mumble, Mother? Or should I even call you that?
Mother Gothel: Mother Gothel: Oh Rapunzel, did you even hear yourself? Why would ask such a ridiculous question?
Rapunzel: Rapunzel: It was you! It was all you!
Mother Gothel: Everything that I did was to protect... YOU.
[Rapunzel pushes past her]
Mother Gothel: Rapunzel.
Rapunzel: [walking down the stairs] I've spent my entire life hiding from people who would use me for my powers?
Mother Gothel: Rapunzel!
Rapunzel: Rapunzel: I should have been hiding... from YOU!
Mother Gothel: Mother Gothel: Where would you go?
[Cut to Flynn struggling with the guards]
Mother Gothel: Mother Gothel:
Mother Gothel: He won't be there for you.
Rapunzel: What did you do to him?
Mother Gothel: Mother Gothel: That criminal is to be hanged for his crimes.
Mother Gothel: Now, Now. It's alright. Listen to me. Everything is as it should be.
[tries to touch her but Rapunzel grabs her wrist]
Rapunzel: No! You were wrong about the world. And you were wrong about me! AND I WILL NEVER LET YOU USE MY HAIR AGAIN!
[Gothel breaks free of Rapunzels grip only to cause a nearby mirror to fall and smash. Rapunzel then turns to leave]
Mother Gothel: You want me to be the bad guy? Fine.
[Advances toward Rapunzel threateningly]
Mother Gothel: Now I'm the bad guy...
Flynn Rider: [Awakes to see Maximus staring back at him, dripping water] Well, I hope you're here to apologize.
Flynn Rider: Well, I've gotta say, I didn't know you had that in you back there. That was pretty impressive.
Rapunzel: [excited] I know!
Rapunzel: I know. So, Flynn, where are you from?
Flynn Rider: Whoa, whoa. Sorry, blondie, I don't do backstory. However, I am becoming very interested in yours. Now, I know I'm not supposed to mention the hair.
Flynn Rider: Or the mother.
Flynn Rider: Frankly, I'm too scared to ask about the frog.
Flynn Rider: Nuance. Here's my question, though. If you want to see the lanterns so badly, why haven't you gone before?
Rapunzel: Uh, heh, well...
[notices stones rumbling at her feet]
Rapunzel: Uh, Flynn?
[the guards and Maximus come charging in]
Captain of the Guard: Rider!
Flynn Rider: Run! Run!
