“All this for a loaf of bread? Whoa! You think that was easy? Morning, ladies. Trouble? No way. You’re only in trouble if you get caught. I’m in trouble. Perfect timing, Abu, as usual. Abu. Come on. Let’s get outta here.” — Aladdin

“♪ Gotta keep one jump Ahead of the bread line ♪ One swing ahead of the sword ♪ I steal only what I can’t afford ♪ That’s everything ♪ One jump ahead of the lawmen ♪ That’s all, and that’s no joke ♪ These guys don’t appreciate I’m broke ♪ Just a little snack, guys ♪ I can take a hint Gotta face the facts ♪ You’re my only friend, Abu ♪ Gotta eat to live Gotta steal to eat ♪ Tell you all about it When I got the time ♪ One jump ahead of the slowpokes One skip ahead of my doom ♪ Next time gonna use a nom de plume ♪ One jump ahead of the hit men One hit ahead of the flock ♪ I think I’ll take a stroll Around the block ♪ Abu ♪ Let’s not be too hasty ♪ Gotta eat to live Gotta steal to eat ♪ Otherwise we’d get along ♪ One jump ahead of the hoof beats ♪ One hop ahead of the hump ♪ One trick ahead of disaster ♪ They’re quick, but I’m much faster ♪ Here goes, better throw my hand in ♪ Wish me happy landin’ All I gotta do is jump ♪” — Aladdin

“And now, esteemed effendi, we feast. All right. Yum, yum! Uh-oh. Here. Go on. Take it. Ah, don’t. Huh? Hey! If I were as rich as you, I could afford some manners. Look at that, Abu. It’s not every day you see a horse with two rear ends. I’m not worthless. And I don’t have fleas. Come on, Abu. Let’s go home.” — Aladdin

“♪ Riffraff, street rat ♪ I don’t buy that ♪ If only they’d look closer ♪ Would they see a poor boy? ♪ No, siree ♪ They’d find out ♪ There’s so much more ♪ To me ♪ Someday, Abu, things are gonna change. We’ll be rich, live in a palace, and never have any problems at all.” — Aladdin

“Okay, Abu. Go. Goodbye. Nice going, Abu. Breakfast is served. Wow. Uh-oh. Hello? Hello? Thank you, kind sir. I’m so glad you found her. I’ve been looking all over for you. Just play along. Sadly, yes. She is my sister. She’s a little crazy. She thinks the monkey is the sultan. Tragic, isn’t it? But no harm done. Now, come along, sis. Time to go see the doctor. No, no, no. Not that one. Come on, Sultan.” — Aladdin

“Almost there. Uh, forget it. So, this is your first time in the marketplace, huh? Well, you do kind of stand out. I mean, uh, you don’t seem to know how dangerous Agrabah can be. Wow. Hey. Come on. This way. Whoa. Watch your head there. Yep. Just me and Abu. Come and go as we please. Well, it’s not much, but it’s got a great view. Wow. The palace looks pretty amazing, huh? I wonder what it would be like to live there, and have servants and valets. It’s better than here. You’re always scraping for food and ducking the guards. Sometimes you feel so… trapped. So, where are you from? Really? How come? Why, you… that’s… that’s awful. Abu! Abu says, uh, that’s not fair. What? Yeah, of course. Well, uh, he wishes there was something he could do to help. Oh, boy.” — Aladdin

“They’re after me! They’re after you? Do you trust me? Do you trust me? Then jump! Run! Go! Get out of here! Get off of me. The princess? Princess? She was the princess. I can’t believe it. I must have sounded so stupid to her. Yoo-hoo! Aladdin! Hello! Abu. Down here. Come on, help me out of these. Hey, she was in trouble. Ah, she was worth it. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Don’t worry, Abu. I’ll never see her again. I’m a street rat, remember? And there’s a law. She’s gotta marry a prince. She deserves a prince. Ta-da! I’m a fool.” — Aladdin

“Who are you? I’m listening. But the law says only a prince can… why would you share all of this wonderful treasure with me? Uh, one problem. It’s out there. We’re in here. Oh, I don’t know. Uh, it is I, Aladdin. Come on, Abu. Would you look at that! Just a handful of this stuff would make me richer than the sultan. Abu! Don’t touch anything. We gotta find that lamp. Huh? Aladdin! Abu, will you knock it off? Abu, what are you, crazy? A magic carpet. Come on. Come on out. We’re not gonna hurt you. Hey, take it easy, Abu. He’s not gonna bite. Thanks. Wait a minute. Don’t go. Maybe you can help us. Hey! Whoa! You see, we’re trying to find this lamp. I think he knows where it is.” — Aladdin

“Wait here. This is it? This is what we came all the way down here to… Abu! No! Uh-oh. Whoa! Help! Help! Help! Gotcha! Carpet, let’s move. Abu! Abu, this is no time to panic. Start panicking. Whoa! Help me out. I can’t hold on. Give me your hand. What are you doing?” — Aladdin

“Oh. Aladdin. Wake up. Aladdin. Oh! My head. We’re trapped. That two-faced son of a jackal! Whoever he was, he’s long gone with that lamp. Aha! Why, you hairy little thief. Looks like such a beat-up, worthless piece of junk. Hey, I think there’s something written here, but it’s hard to make out. Uh… uh, Aladdin. I must’ve hit my head harder than I thought. Wait a minute. I’m your master? Whoa. Wish fulfillment? Now I know I’m dreaming.” — Aladdin

“Huh? You’re gonna grant me any three wishes I want, right? Like? Hmm. Oh! Provisos? You mean limitations? On wishes? Some all-powerful genie. Can’t even bring people back from the dead. I don’t know, Abu. He probably can’t even get us out of this cave. Looks like we’re gonna have to find a way out of here.” — Aladdin

“Oh, you sure showed me. Now, about my three wishes. Ah, no. I never actually wished to get out of the cave. You did that on your own. Fair deal. So, three wishes. I want them to be good. What would you wish for? What? Come on. Tell me. You’re a prisoner? Genie, that’s terrible. Why not? I’ll do it. I’ll set you free. No, really, I promise. After I make my first two wishes, I’ll use my third wish to set you free. Well, there’s this girl. Oh, but, Genie, she’s smart and fun and… beautiful. She’s got these eyes that just… and this hair. Wow. And her smile… but she’s the princess. To even have a chance, I’d have to be… hey, can you make me a prince?” — Aladdin

“Genie, I wish for you to make me a prince. Uh-oh. Abu, you look good.” — Aladdin

Princess Jasmine and Rajah

“Oh, father. Rajah was just playing with him. Weren’t you, Rajah? You were just playing with that overdressed, self-absorbed Prince Achmed, weren’t you? The law is wrong. Father, I hate being forced into this. IF I do marry, I want it to be for love. Please try to understand. I’ve never done a thing on my own. I’ve never had an real friends. Except you, Rajah. I’ve never even been outside the palace walls. Then maybe I don’t want to be a princess anymore. Hmm?”

“Oh, I’m sorry, Rajah. But I can’t stay here and have my life lived for me. I’ll miss you. Goodbye. Oh, no. I don’t think so. Oh! Excuse me. I’m really very sorry. Oh, you must be hungry. Here you go. Pay? Oh, I’m sorry, sir. I don’t have any money. Please… if you let me go to the palace, I can get some from the sultan. No! No, please! What are you doing? O wise Sultan, how may I serve you? Oh, hello, Doctor. How are you?”

“I want to thank you for stopping that man. Is it that obvious? Hmm. I’m a fast learner. Is this where you live? That sounds fabulous. Oh, it’s wonderful. Oh, sure. People who tell you where to go and how to dress. You’re not free to make your own choices. You’re just… trapped. What does it matter? I ran away and I am not going back. My father’s forcing me to get married. What? Oh, did he? And does Abu have anything else to say? Hmm. Tell him that’s very sweet.”

“They’re after you? My father must have sent them… what? Yes… let him go. Unhand him, by order of the princess. That’s not your concern. Do as I command. Release him. Believe me, I will.”

“Jafar? The guards just took a boy from the market, on your orders. What was his crime? He didn’t kidnap me. I ran away. What do you mean? What sentence? No. How could you? It’s all my fault, Rajah. I didn’t even know his name.”

“Jafar has done something terrible. At least some good will come of my being forced to marry. When I am queen, I will have the power to get rid of you.”

Jafar and Iago

“You are late. You have it, then? Trust me, my pungent friend. You’ll get what’s coming to you. What’s coming to you. Awk! Quickly! Follow the trail. Faster. At last, after all my years of searching, the Cave of Wonders. Awk. Cave of Wonders. Now, remember. Bring me the lamp. The rest of the treasure is yours, but the lamp is mine. Awk, the lamp. Awk, the lamp. Jeez, where did you dig this bozo up? Shh. What are you waiting for? Go on. No!”

“I can’t believe it. I just don’t believe it. We’re never gonna get a hold of that stupid lamp. Just forget it. Look at this. I’m so ticked off that I’m molting. Patience, Iago. Patience. Gazeem was obviously less than worthy. Oh, there’s a big surprise. I think I’m gonna have a heart attack and die from that surprise. What are we gonna do? We got a big problem here, a big… yes. Only one may enter. I must find this one, this… diamond in the rough.”

“My life is but to serve you, my lord. Awk. Wit’s end! Your Majesty certainly has a way with dumb animals. Now, then, perhaps I can divine a solution to this thorny problem. But I would require the use of the mystic blue diamond. It is necessary to find the princess a suitor. Don’t worry. Everything will be fine. The diamond. You are most gracious, my liege. Now, run along and play with your little toys, hmm? I can’t take it anymore! If I gotta choke down on one more of those moldy, disgusting crackers… bam! Whack! Calm yourself, Iago. Then I’d grab him around the head. Whack! Soon I will be sultan, not that addlepated twit. And then I stuff the crackers down his throat. Ha, ha!”

“With all due respect, Your Rottenness, couldn’t we just wait for a real storm? Save your breath, Iago. Faster. Yes O mighty evil one. Part, sands of time. Reveal to me the one who can enter the cave. Yes! Yes! There he is. My diamond in the rough. That’s him? That’s the clown we’ve been waitin’ for? Let’s have the guards extend him an invitation to the palace, shall we? Swell.”

“Oh, Princess. Awk! Jafar, I’m stuck. How many I be of service to you? Your father has charged me with keeping peace in Agrabah. The boy was a criminal. I can’t breathe, Jafar. Why, kidnapping the princess, of course. If you could just… aah! That hurt! Oh, dear. Oh, how frightfully upsetting. Had I but known… sadly, the boy’s sentence has aleady been carried out. Death. By beheading. I am exceedingly sorry, Princess. So, how did it go? I think she took it rather well.”

“You’re only a fool if you give up, boy. A lowly prisoner, like yourself. But together, perhaps we can be more. There is a cave, boy, a Cave of Wonders, filled with treasures beyond your wildest dreams. Treasure enough to impress even your princess, I’d wager. Jafar, can you hurry up? I’m dying in here. You’ve heard of the golden rule, haven’t you? Whoever has the gold makes the rules. I need a young pair of legs and a strong back to go in after it. Uh-uh. Things aren’t always what they seem. So, do we have a deal? Remember, boy, first fetch me the lamp, and then you shall have your reward.”

“Throw me the lamp. First give me the lamp. Yes! At last! Giving you your reward. Your eternal reward. It’s mine. It’s all mine. I… where is it? No. No! I assure you, Your Highness, it won’t happen again. My most abject and humblest apologies to you as well, Princess.”

“If only I had gotten that lamp. ‘I will have the power to get rid of you.’ To think we gotta keep kissing up to that chump and his chump daughter for the rest of our lives… no, Iago. Only until she finds a chump husband. Then she’ll have us banished. Or beheaded. Eww! Oh. Wait a minute. Jafar. What if you were the chump husband? What? Okay, you marry the princess, all right? And, uh, then you become the sultan. Oh. Marry the shrew. I become the sultan. The idea has merit. Yes, merit. Yes. And then we drop papa-in-law and the little woman off a cliff. Yaaah! Kersplat! I love the way your foul little mind works.”

“Sire, I’ve found a solution to the problem with your daughter. Awk. The problem with your daughter. Right here. ‘If the princess has not chosen a husband by the appointed time, then the sultan shall choose for her.’ Not to worry, my liege. There is more. ‘If in the event a suitable prince cannot be found…’ “

Genie, Disney+, Walt Disney Pictures, Silver Screen Partners IV, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Robin Williams


“Aaaaahhhhh! Oy! 10,000 years will give you such a crick in the neck. Hang on a second. Whoa! Whoa! Does it feel good to be outta there. I’m telling you, nice to be back, ladies and gentlemen. Hi. Where you from? What’s your name? Aladdin. Hello, Aladdin. Nice to have you on the show. Can we call you Al? Or maybe just Din? How about Laddie? Sounds like, ‘here boy. C’mon, laddie.’ Do you smoke? Mind if I do? Oh, sorry, Cheeta. Hope I didn’t singe the fur. Yo, Rugman. Haven’t seen you in a few millennia. Give me some tassel. Yeah. Yo, yo. Say, you’re a lot smaller than my last master. Either that or I’m gettin’ bigger. Look at me from the side. Do I look different to you? That’s right. He can be taught. What would you wish of me? The ever impressive, the long contained, the often imitated, but never duplicated… duplicated, duplicated… Genie of the Lamp! Right here direct from the lamp, right here for your very much wish fulfillment. Thank you. Three wishes, to be exact. And ixnay on the wishing for more wishes. That’s it. Three. Uno, dos, tres. No substitutions, exchanges or refunds.”

“So, what’ll it be, master? Ah, almost. There are a few provisos, a couple of quid pro quos. Ah, rule number one, I can’t kill anybody. So don’t ask. Rule number two. I can’t make anybody fall in love with anybody else. You little ponem there. Rule number three. I can’t bring people back from the dead. It’s not a pretty picture. I don’t like doing it. Other than that, you got it. Excuse me. Are you lookin’ at me? Did you rub my lamp? Did you wake me up? Did you bring me here? And all of a sudden you’re walking out on me? I don’t think so, not right now. You’re gettin’ your wishes, so sit down! In case of emergency, the exits are here, here, here, here, anywhere. Keep your hands and arms inside the carpet. We’re… outta here!”

“Thank you for choosing Magic Carpet for all your travel needs. Don’t stand until the rug has come to a complete stop. Thank you. Goodbye now. Good-bye. Thank you. Well, how about that, Mr. Doubting Mustafa? Dost mine ears deceive me? Three? You are down by one, boy. Well, I feel sheepish. All right, you bad boy, but no more freebies. Me? No one’s ever asked me that before. Well, in my case… ah, forget it. No, I can’t. I… freedom. It’s all part and parcel of the whole genie gig. Phenomenal cosmic powers… itty bitty living space. But, oh, to be free… not have to go, ‘poof. What do you need? Poof. What do you need? Poof. What do you need?’ To be my own master. Such a thing would be greater than all the magic and all the treasures in all the world. But what am I talking about? Let’s get real here. It’s not gonna happen. Genie, wake up and smell the hummus. The only way I get outta this is if my master wishes me out. So you can guess how often that’s happened. Uh-huh, yeah, right. Well, here’s hopin’. All right. Let’s make some magic. So how ’bout it? What is it you want most? Wrong. I can’t make anybody fall in love, remember? Pretty? Ami. C’est l’amour.”

“Let’s see here. Chicken a la king? Nope. Alaskan king crab. Ow. I hate it when they do that. Caesar salad. Ah! Et tu, Brute? No. Aha. ‘To make a prince.’ Is that an official wish? Say the magic words. All right. Yo, yo! Woof! Woof! First, that fez-and-vest combo is much too third century. These patches. What are we trying to say, beggar? No. Let’s work with me here. Ooh. I like it. Muy macho. Now, it still needs something. What does it say to me? It says mode of transportation. Excuse me, monkey boy. Aqui. Over here. Here he comes. What better way to make your entrance on the streets of Agrabah than riding your very own, brand-new camel? Watch out. They spit. Mmm. Not enough. Still not enough. Let’s see. What do you need? Yes! Esalalumbo shimin Dumbo. Whoa! Talk about your trunk space. Check this action out. He’s got the outfit. He’s got the elephant. But we’re not through yet. Hang on to your turban, kid. We’re gonna make you a star.”

Sultan, Disney+, Walt Disney Pictures, Silver Screen Partners IV, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Douglas Seale

The Sultan

“Oh, Prince Achmed. You’re not leaving so soon, are you? Oh! Jasmine. Jasmine! Jasmine! Confound it, Rajah. So, this is why Prince Achmed stormed out. Dearest, you’ve got to stop rejecting every suitor who comes to call. The law says you must be married to a prince by your next birthday. You’ve only got three more days. Jasmine, it’s not only this law. I’m not going to be around forever, and, well, I… I just want to make sure you’re taken care of. Provided for. But, Jasmine, you’re a princess. Oooh! I… I… Allah forbid you should have any daughters.”

“I don’t know where she gets it from. Her mother wasn’t nearly so picky. Oh! Ah, Jafar. My most trusted advisor. I am in desperate need of your wisdom. It’s this suitor business. Jasmine refuses to choose a husband. I’m at my wit’s end. Oh! Have a cracker, pretty Polly. If anyone can help, it’s you. Oh. Uh, my ring? But it’s been in the family for years. Everything will be fine. Here, Jafar. Whatever you need will be fine. Yes. That will be pretty good.”

“Jasmine? Oh, dearest. What’s wrong? There, there, my dear. We’ll set it right. Now, tell me everything. Jafar, this is an outrage. If it weren’t for all your years of loyal service… from now on, you are to discuss sentencing of prisoners with me, before they are beheaded. Jasmine… Jafar. Let’s put this whole messy business behind us. Please. There, now. That’s nice. All settled, then. Now, Jasmine, getting back to this suitor business… Jasmine? Jasmine!”

“Oh, really? But Jasmine hated all those suitors. How could I choose someone she hates?”


“A thousand apologies, O patient one. I had to slit a few throats, but I got it. Ah-ah-ahhh. The treasure. Ow! By Allah. It is I, Gazeem, a humble thief.”

The Cave of Wonders

“Who disturbs my slumber? Know this. Only one may enter here, one whose worth lies far within. A diamond in the rough. Seek thee out the diamond in the rough.”

“Who disturbs my slumber? Proceed. Touch nothing but the lamp. Infidels! You have touched the forbidden treasure! Now you will never again see the light of day!”

Palace Guard

“Stop! Thief! I’ll have your hands for a trophy, street rat. There he is! You won’t get away so easy! You two, over that way, and you, follow me. We’ll find him. Gotcha. And this time… Riffraff. Street rat. Rip him open Take it back, guys. There he is. Wrong. Get him! He’s got a sword! You idiots. We’ve all got swords. Vandal! Street rat! Scoundrel! Yuck! Oy!”

“Here you are. We just keep running into each other, don’t we, street rat? Get this thing off of me! It’s the dungeon for you, boy. Looky here, men. A street mouse. Princess Jasmine. What are you doing outside the palace? And with this street rat. I would, Princess, except my orders come from Jafar. You’ll have to take it up with him.”

Prince Ahmed

“Out of my way, you filthy brats! Oh. I’ll teach you some manners. You are a worthless street rat. You were born a street rat, you’ll die a street rat, and only your fleas will mourn you.”

“I’ve never been so insulted. Good luck marrying her off.”


“♪ Oh, I come from a land From a faraway place Where the caravan camels roam ♪ Where it’s flat and immense and the heat is intense ♪ It’s barbaric, but hey, it’s home ♪ When the wind’s from the east And the sun’s from the west ♪ And the sand in the glass is right ♪ Come on down, stop on by Hop a carpet and fly ♪ To another Arabian night ♪ Arabian nights ♪ Like Arabian days ♪ More often than not Are hotter than hot ♪ In a lot of good ways ♪ Arabian nights ♪ ‘Neath Arabian moons ♪ A fool off his guard Could fall and all hard ♪ Out there on the dunes ♪”

“Ah, salaam and good evening to you, worthy friend. Please, please, come closer. Too close. A little too close. There. Welcome to Agrabah, city of mystery, of enchantment, and the finest merchandise this side of the River Jordan, on sale today. Come on down. Look at this. Yes. Combination hookah and coffeemaker. Also makes julienne fries. Will not break. Will not… it broke. Ohh! Look at this. I have never seen one of these intact before. This is the famous Dead See Tupperware. Listen. Ah, still good. Wait. Don’t go.”

“I can see that you’re only interested in the exceptionally rare. I think, then, you would be most rewarded to consider this. Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts. This is no ordinary lamp. It once changed the course of a young man’s life. A young man who, like this lamp, was more than what he seemed. A diamond in the rough. Perhaps you would like to hear the tale? It begins on a dark night, where a dark man waits with a dark purpose.”

“Getting into trouble a little early today, aren’t we, Aladdin? Scoundrel. Take that. Who? Oh, it’s sad Aladdin’s hit the bottom. He’s become a one-man rise in crime. I’d blame parents except he hasn’t got ’em. Stop, thief. Vandal. Scandal. Still I think he’s rather tasty.”

“On his way to the palace, I suppose. Another suitor for the princess.”

“Try this. Your taste buds will dance and sing. Get your paws off that. Why, you… get away from here, you cursed, filthy ape! Pretty lady, buy a pot. No finer pot in brass or silver. Sugar dates. Sugar dates and figs. Sugar dates and pistachios. Would the lady like a necklace? A pretty necklace for a pretty lady. Fresh fish! We catch ’em, you buy ’em!”

“You’d better be able to pay for that. No one steals from my cart. Thief! Do you know what the penalty is for stealing? You, uh, know this girl? She said she knew the sultan. Huh? What? Come back here, you little thieves!”
