Quotes

Tamina: Such a noble prince.

Prince Dastan: Such a gentle princess.

Tamina: How taken you were with my fainting act, eagerly leaping to assist the fallen beauty.

Prince Dastan: Who said you were a beauty?

Tamina: There must be a reason why you can't take your eyes off me.

Prince Dastan: You're... I... I don't trust you. And you're not my type.

Tamina: [about to die] I'm ready for this.

Prince Dastan: I'm not.

Tamina: [about the dagger as he's walking away] You don't understand what's at stake! This is a matter for the Gods, not man!

Prince Dastan: Your gods, not mine!

Tamina: [Dastan is eyeing a necklace that rests within Tamina's shirt; she notices him looking] See what you were looking for, Prince?

[last lines]

Tamina: How can I trust the man who breached the walls of my city?

Prince Dastan: Well, I'm starting to think I'm no longer the same man who breached those walls.

Tamina: That's a short time for a man to change so much.

Prince Dastan: Perhaps.

Tamina: It sounds as if you've discovered something here.

Prince Dastan: And what might that be?

Tamina: A new spiritual awareness.

Prince Dastan: Destiny.

Tamina: Yes, exactly.

Prince Dastan: I believe we make our own destiny, Princess.

Tamina: You have an unfortunate lack of curiosity.

Prince Dastan: No doubt one of my many flaws.

Tamina: Please don't mock me, Prince.

Prince Dastan: Oh, I hardly think we know each other well enough for that, Princess, but I look forward to the day that we do.

Tus: [Looking at Tamina] A rare jewel. Present her to the king for me this evening, Dastan.

Prince Dastan: Sure you really want another wife, brother?

Prince Dastan: You've eased Father's anger, Uncle.

Nizam: One day, you'll have the pleasure of being brother to the king, Dastan. As long as you remember your most important duty, you should do well.

Prince Dastan: Oh, and what's that?

Nizam: Making sure his wine glass stays full.

Prince Dastan: I've heard all these terrible stories of this place.

Sheik Amar: [laughing] The bloodthirsty slaves, murdering their masters? It's a good story; it's well told, ever-evolving, yeah but alas untrue.

Prince Dastan: But the skeletons that we saw at the...

Sheik Amar: ...I bought those from a gypsy in Bacara. Ah, I crafted our lurid reputation in order to fend off the most insidious evil that's been lurking this forsaken country of ours. Y'know what I'm talking about?

[Dastan shakes his head]

Sheik Amar: Taxes!

[spits]

Sheik Amar: Gah, these Persians! Their armies, their fortresses, their roads. Who pays for it all, eh? The small businessman! See that's why I started a little campaign, to spread some false notoriety. I spread it like a venerable disease in a Turkish harem!

Prince Dastan: As hard as it is for me to admit you were right

[he rips her necklace containing some of the sands of time off her]

Prince Dastan: I did see what I was looking for.

Sheik Amar: Did I ever tell you about the Ngbaka?

Prince Dastan: You enjoy telling me what to do.

Tamina: Only because you're so good at following orders.

Prince Dastan: Don't press your luck.

Prince Dastan: The secret guardian temple outside Alamut is a sanctuary, the one place the dagger can be hidden safely, the only way to stop this Armageddon. That's the truth, Dastan. Give me back the dagger, so that I can take it there.

Tamina: Oh. I can't do that.

[he starts walking away]

Tamina: ... I'm coming with you.

Prince Dastan: [in disbelief] You're going to help me?

Tamina: Well we can sit here and chat, or you can get on the horse.

Tamina: You know you really walk like one. Head held high, chest out, long stomping strides. The walk of a self-satisfied Persian prince. No doubt it comes from being told since birth the world is yours, and actually believing it.

Prince Dastan: I wasn't born in a palace like you! I was born in the slums of Nasaf, where I lived if I fought and I clawed for it.

Tamina: Then how did you become a prince?

Prince Dastan: The king... marched into the market one day, and he... I don't know, he... he found me. He took me in, he gave me a family, he gave me a home.

Tamina: I had no choice but to leave you. I take it your uncle didn't listen.

Prince Dastan: It wasn't Tus that killed my father, it was Nizam.

Tamina: [confused] Your uncle?

Prince Dastan: His hands were burnt. He said it happened trying to pull off the cloak that killed my father. I've gone over it and over it in my mind, he never touched the cloak, he must have handled it before. It was Nizam who poisoned it. What good does turning back a few moments of time do my uncle? None. He murdered my father for more than just a dagger. What aren't you telling me?

[produces the dagger]

Prince Dastan: You know, you've got quick hands, but so do I. If you want it back, you tell me everything. No more games, no more lies.

Prince Dastan: ...you could turn back time as far as you like.

Tamina: Yes, but it is forbidden.

Tamina: Dastan, the Sands contained within the Sand Glass are incredibly powerful. Opening the dagger while it's inside the glass breaks the seal... and destroys the Sand Glass, causing it to crack and shatter. The Sands of Time would no longer be contained, and they would carry the Gods' wrath with them once more, destroying everything in their path, and all mankind would pay for Nizam's treachery. This is all that would be left of us.

[first lines]

Tus: [voiceover] Long ago in a land far away, there once rose an empire that stretched from the steppes of China to the shores of the Mediterranean. That empire was Persia. Fierce in battle, wise in victory. Where the Persian sword went, order followed. The Persian king, Sharaman, ruled with his brother, Nizam, upon the principles of loyalty and brotherhood.

Tus: [voiceover] Moved by what he saw, the king adopted the boy Dastan into his family. A son with no royal blood and no eye on his throne. But perhaps there was something else at work that day, something beyond simple understanding. The day a boy from the unlikeliest of places became a prince of Persia.

Prince Dastan: Our invasion wasn't about weapon forges, it was about this dagger. After the battle, Tus asked for this dagger as tribute. I didn't think anything of it, but now I see. With it he could change anything, he could change the, the course of a critical moment in battle, he could foresee the blade of a rival! He wouldn't just be king, he'd be the most powerful ruler Persia has ever seen, greater even than my father. It was all about this dagger!

Sheik Amar: [Dastan is encircled by men on horses, and a knife is thrown at him but deliberately misses] Do you know where you are, Persian? And yet you enter still? In the heart of Sudan, there is a tribe of warriors known as the Ngbaka. They strike fear into the hearts of all they cross. The Ngbaka are masters of the throwing knife, wielding blades said to have been blessed by the Creator himself. Their aim is so murderously accurate, they can decapitate *three men*... with one strike.

[Dastan tries to grab the knife]

Sheik Amar: Oh I wouldn't even bother doing that if I were you, d'you know why? This... is Seso. He's an Ngbaka. I had the good fortune of saving his life which means that he is now enduringly indebted to me.

[Seso poises to throw again; Dastan notes the previous knife is positioned above his groin and quickly shakes his head]

Prince Dastan: We can't stop.

Sheik Amar: Well perhaps you can't, but we can!

Tamina: We could use your help getting to the temple.

Sheik Amar: Oh, by crossing the Hindu Kush with a storm blowing? You attract trouble like flies 'round rotting mango *and* you're insane!

Tamina: There's gold at the temple. More than ten horses can carry. Tax-free.
