Song: It's only forever
Not long at all.
Lost and lonely
No one can blame you
For walking away,
But too much rejection, uh huh
No love injection, no
Life can be easy
It's not always swell
Don't tell me truth hurts, little girl
'Cause it hurts like hell
But down in the underground
You'll find someone true
Down in the underground
A land serene
A crystal moon
It's only forever,
It's not long at all
Lost and lonely
(Park - Day)
(A young girl walks up wearing a medieval type dress. She speaks directly into the camera.)
Sarah: Give me the child. Through dangers untold, and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the goblin city. For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great…(pause…to herself) For my will is as strong as yours…my kingdom is great…Damn! I can never remember that line. (She pulls a book out of her pocket and opens it.) "You have no power over me." (Thunder rolls, and her dog Merlin, barks.) Oh, Merlin. (The clock in the tower begins to chime 7:00pm) Oh no, Merlin! I don't believe it! It's 7:00! Come on! Come one!
(The song resumes as Sarah races for home as it starts to rain.)
Song: No one can blame you
For walking away
But too much rejection, uh huh
No love injection, no, no
Life can be easy
It's not always swell
Don't tell me truth hurts, little girl
'Cause it hurts like hell
Hurts like hell
Hurts like hell…
(Her stepmother is standing on the porch waiting for her.)
Sarah: Oh, it's not fair!
Mother: Oh really? (pause) Don't stand there in the rain.
Sarah: All right. Come on, Merlin.
Mother: Not the dog!
Sarah: But it's pouring!
Mother: (to Merlin) Go on! Into the garage.
Sarah: Oh! Go on, Merlin. Go into the garage, go!
(Merlin goes to the garage while Sarah heads into the house with her Stepmother right behind.)
Mother: Sarah, you're an hour late.
Sarah: I said I was sorry.
Mother: Please let me finish. Your father and I go out very rarely.
Sarah: You go out every single weekend!
Mother: And I ask you to baby-sit only if it won't interfere with your plans.
Sarah: Well how do you know? You don't know what my plans are, you don't even ask me anymore.
Mother: Well, I assume you'd tell me. I'd like it if you had dates, you should have dates at your age.
Father: (coming down the stairs) We were worried about you.
Sarah: (runs up the stairs) I can't do anything right, can I?!
Mother: She treats me like a wicked stepmother in a fairy story no matter what I say.
Father: I'll talk to her.
(Toby begins to cry.)
(We can hear the music from a music box playing in the background as we pan across some of Sarah's things. Her books, some dolls. Sarah herself is sitting at her desk and she's reading out of the book 'Labyrinth'.)
Sarah: Through dangers untold…and hardships unnumbered…I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the goblin city…to take back the child that you have stolen.
(There is a knock at the door.)
Father: Sarah? Could I talk to you?
Sarah: There's nothing to talk about! You better hurry or you're gonna be late.
Father: We've fed Toby and put him to bed. We'll be back around midnight. (leaves)
Sarah: (sarcastically) You really wanted to talk to me didn't you? Practically broke down the door. (She turns to look at the shelves near her bed and notices that one of her stuffed animals is gone.) Lancelot! Someone has been in my room again. I hate that! I hate it.
(Toby is in his crib crying. Sarah runs in and sees her stuffed bear lying on the floor where Toby has thrown him.)
Sarah: I hate you! I hate you! Someone save me, someone take me away from this awful place. (The storm continues to build outside and Toby continues to cry loudly.) What do you want? Do you want a story? Huh? Ok. Once upon a time there was a beautiful young girl who's stepmother always made her stay home with the baby. And the baby was a spoiled child and he wanted everything for himself, and the young girl was practically a slave. But what no one knew was that the king of the goblins had fallen in love with the girl and he had given her certain powers. So one night, when the baby had been particularly cruel to her she asked the goblins for help.
(A lot of goblins are asleep but one of them hears her.)
Sarah: "Say your right words," the Goblin's said, " And we'll take the baby to the Goblin City and you will be free."
Sarah: But the girl knew that the king of the goblins would keep the baby in his castle forever and ever, and turn it into a goblin. So she suffered in silence until one night when she was tired from a day of housework and hurt by the harsh words of her stepmother and she could no longer stand it. (Toby continues to cry.) Oh, all right! All right! (she picks him up out of his crib) Knock it off. Come on. Stop it! Stop it! I'll say the words. No, I mustn't. I mustn't say…
Sarah: I wish…I wish…
Goblin1: She's going to say it!
Goblin2: Say what?
Goblin1: Shut up!
Goblin3: You shut up!
Goblin1: Listen! She's going to say the words!
Sarah: I can bear no longer! Goblin King! Goblin King! Wherever you may be, take this child of mine far away from me!
Goblin3: That's not it! Where'd she learn that rubbish. It doesn't even start with I wish!
Sarah: Oh, Toby, stop it! I wish I did know what to say to make the goblins take you away.
(She puts Toby back in his crib and walks to the door.)
Goblin3: "I wish the goblins would come and take you away right now." That's not hard is it?
Sarah: I wish…I wish…
Goblin: Did she say it?
Goblins: Shut up!
(Toby continues to cry as Sarah reaches the door.)
Sarah: I wish the goblins would come and take you away…(she turns off the bedroom light) right now. (The crying stops.) Toby? Toby, are you all right? Why aren't you crying? TOBY?
(Sarah walks back over to the crib and it is empty. We see several goblins popping in and out of their hiding spaces as Sarah keeps turning around and around to try and see them. There is a snowy owl that is trying to get in from the balcony. Suddenly the doors burst open and Sarah covers her face as the owl flies in. The owl morphs into Jareth, the Goblin King.)
Sarah: You're him aren't you? You're the Goblin King. (Jareth says nothing.) I want my brother back if it's all the same.
Jareth: What's said is said.
Sarah: But, I didn't mean it.
Jareth: Oh, you didn't?
Sarah: Please, where is he?
Jareth: You know very well where he is.
Sarah: Please bring him back, please.
Jareth: Sarah…go back to your room. Play with your toys and costumes…forget about the baby.
Sarah: I can't.
Jareth: I've brought you a gift. (He holds up a crystal ball.)
Sarah: What is it?
Jareth: It's a crystal, nothing more. But if you turn it this way, and look into it, it will show you your dreams. But this isn't a gift for an ordinary girl who takes care of a screaming baby. Do you want it? Then forget the baby.
Sarah: I can't. I appreciate what you're offering, but I want my brother back. He must be so scared.
Jareth: Sarah…don't defy me. (The crystal turns into a snake in his hands and he throws it at Sarah.
Sarah: Ah! (She bats it away and it falls to the floor where it turns into a goblin.)
Goblin: Hee hee!
(All the goblins pop out of their hiding places and laugh.)
(As soon as Sarah turns around to see them they go back to hiding.)
Jareth: You're no match for me, Sarah.
Sarah: I need my brother back.
(Suddenly they are standing at the edge of the Labyrinth. You can see Jareth's castle at the center, beyond the Goblin City.)
Jareth: He's there, in my castle. Do you still want to look for him?
Sarah: Is that the castle beyond the Goblin City?
Jareth: Turn back, Sarah. Turn back before it's too late.
Sarah: I can't. Don't you understand that I can't?
Jareth: What a pity.
Sarah: It doesn't look that far.
Jareth: It's further than you think, and time is short. (He waves his hand and a clock with 13 hours on it appears.) You have 13 hours in which to solve the Labyrinth before your baby brother becomes one of us, forever. Such a pity. (fades out)
Sarah: The Labyrinth. It doesn't look that hard. Well…come on feet.
(Outside the Labyrinth)
(A man is peeing into a pool. He's humming to himself.)
Sarah: Excuse me?
Hoggle: Oh! Excuse me. (he zips up his fly and turns to see who it is) Oh, it's you.
Sarah: Can you help me get through this Labyrinth?
Sarah: (sees the fairies flying around.) Oh, how sweet.
Hoggle: (sprays the fairies with some kind of pesticide.) 57!
Sarah: How could you?!
Sarah: (picks up the fairy.) Poor thing. (to Hoggle) You monster! Ow! (she drops the fairie) It bit me.
Hoggle: Ha! What did you expect fairies to do?
Sarah: I thought they'd do nice things…like granting wishes.
Hoggle: Shows what you know, don't it? (sprays another one) 58!
Sarah: You're horrible!
Hoggle: No, I ain't. I'm Hoggle. Who are you?
Hoggle: That's what I thought. (sprays another fairy) 59!
Sarah: Do you know where the door to the Labyrinth is?
Sarah: Well…where is it?
Hoggle: Oh, you little…(sprays a fairy) 60!
Sarah: I said where is it?
Hoggle: Where is what?
Sarah: The door!
Hoggle: What door?
Sarah: It's hopeless asking you anything.
Hoggle: Not if you ask the right questions.
Sarah: How do I get into the Labyrinth?
Hoggle: Ah! Now that's more like it. You gets in….there. (points to a door that opens) You really going in there, are you?
Sarah: Yes, I'm afraid I have to.
Hoggle: Cozy isn't it? (laughs) Now, would you go left or right?
Sarah: They both look the same to me.
Hoggle: Well, you're not going to get very far.
Sarah: Which way would you go?
Hoggle: Me? I wouldn't go either way.
Sarah: If that's all the help you're gonna me you can just leave.
Hoggle: You know your problem? You take too much for granted. Take this Labyrinth…even if you reach the center you'll never get out again.
Sarah: That's your opinion.
Hoggle: Well it's a lot better than yours.
Sarah: Thanks for nothing Howart.
Hoggle: Oh! It's Hoggle, and don't say I didn't warn you. Yeah. (He storms off and slams the doors behind him.)
(Inside the Labyrinth)
(Sarah begins walking but there are no turns or anything.)
Sarah: What do they mean "Labyrinth"? There aren't any turns or corners or anything. This just goes on and on. (pause) Maybe it doesn't. Maybe I'm just taking for granted that it does.
(She begins to run, but she still finds no turns so she stops and beats her hands against the walls in frustration.)
Sarah: Did you say Hello?
Worm: No, I said 'Ello, but that's close enough.
Sarah: You're a worm, aren't you?
Worm: Yeah, that's right.
Sarah: Do you know the way through this Labyrinth?
Worm: Me? No, I'm just a worm.
Worm: Come inside and meet the Mrs.
Sarah: No, thank you. But I have to solve this Labyrinth. There aren't any turns or openings, it just goes on and on.
Worm: It's full of openings, it's just you ain't seen 'em.
Sarah: Where are they?
Worm: There's one right in front of you.
Sarah: No, there isn't.
Worm: Come inside and have a nice cup of tea.
Sarah: But there isn't an opening.
Worm: Of course there is. Try walking through it, you'll see what I mean.
Worm: Go on, then.
Sarah: That's just a wall, there's no way through.
Worm: Things aren't always what they seem in this place, so you can't take anything for granted.
(She tries it and realizes that she can walk through the wall.)
Worm: Hey! Hang on!
Sarah: Thank you. That was incredibly helpful.
Worm: But don't go that way!
Sarah: What was that?
Worm: Don't go that way. Never go that way!
Sarah: Oh! Thanks! (Turns and goes the opposite direction into the wall.)
Worm: If she had kept on going down that way, she'd have gone straight to that castle.
(In the Labyrinth)
(Sarah can see the castle from a distance and can hear Toby crying.)
Sarah: Toby. I'm coming, Toby.
(Toby is crying.)
Goblin: Get off me.
Goblin: Get out of the way!
Goblin: What are you talking about?
Goblin: Walk, walk, walk.
Goblin: What's the matter?
(The goblins are all laughing and having a good time. Jareth comes in and begins singing.)
Jareth: You remind me of the babe.
Goblin: What babe?
Jareth: The babe with the power.
Goblin: What power?
Jareth: The power of voodoo.
Goblin: Who do?
Jareth: You do.
Goblin: Do what?
Jareth: Remind me of the babe.
Jareth: QUIET! A goblin babe. (laughs alone.) Well?
Jareth: I saw my baby, crying hard as babe could cry. What could I do? My baby's love had gone, and left my baby blue. Nobody knew what kind of magic spell to use.
Goblin: Slime and snails.
Goblin: Or a puppy dog's tail.
Goblin: Thunder or lighting.
Jareth: And baby said.
Toby: Ga ga.
Jareth: Dance magic dance. Dance magic dance. Dance magic dance. Put that baby spell on me. Jump magic jump. Jump magic jump. Jump magic jump. Put that magic jump on me.
Goblins: Slap that baby.
Goblin: Make him free!
(Sarah is walking around in the Labyrinth. She makes a mark on the sidewalk to tell her the direction she's going. When she turns her back a goblin pops up and changes her mark.)
Goblin: Hey what's going on? It's a writing on the fragging walk walk. Your mother is a fraggin' ardvark!
Jareth: (to Toby) In 9 hours and 23 minutes, you'll be mine.
Jareth: I saw my baby, trying hard as babe could try. What could I do? My baby's fun had gone, and left my baby blue. Nobody knew what kind of magic spell to use.
Goblin: Slime and snails.
Goblin: Puppy dog's tails.
Goblin: Thunder or lightening.
Jareth: Then baby said…
Jareth: Dance magic dance. Dance magic dance. Dance magic. Put that baby spell on me. Jump magic jump. Jump magic jump. Jump magic jump. Put that magic jump on me.
Goblins: Slap that baby.
Goblins: Make him free.
Jareth: Dance magic dance. Dance magic dance. Jump magic jump. Jump magic jump. Put that baby spell on me.
(Two goblins change Sarah's mark when she's not looking.)
Goblin: You got it?
Goblin: I got it.
(Sarah reaches a dead end and turns around only to see that her mark has been changed.)
Sarah: Oh no! Someone has been changing my marks. What a horrible place this is. It's not fair!
Guard 1: That's right! It's not fair.
(Sarah turns around and sees that the dead end now has two doors. Each door is guarded. There are two guards for each door. Basically two of them are upside down. They are guards 2 & 4, and guards 1 & 3 are the guards standing correctly.)
Guard 2: That's only half of it.
Sarah: This was a dead end a minute ago.
Guard 4: No, that's the dead end behind you.
(Sarah turns to look and sure enough it is now a dead end behind her.)
Sarah: It keeps changing! What am I supposed to do?
Guard 2: Try one of these doors.
Guard 4: One of them leads to the castle at the center of the Labyrinth, and the other one leads to…
Guard 1: Ba ba ba bum!
Guard 2: …certain death!
Sarah: Which one is which?
Guard 2: We can't tell you.
Sarah: Why not?
Guard 2: Uh, I uh…We don't know.
Guard 4: But they do. (looks up at the other half of the guard)
Sarah: Oh. Then I'll ask them.
Guard 3: Uh, you can't ask us….you can only ask one of us.
Guard 1: It's in the rules. And you should know that one of us always tells the truth, and one of us always lies. That's a rule too, he (pointing at Guard 3) always lies.
Guard 3: I do not! I tell the truth!
Guard 1: Oh what a lie!
Guard 2: (Laughs)
Guard 3: He's the liar.
Sarah: (walks over to Guard 3) All right. Answer yes or no. Would he (pointing at Guard 1) tellm e that this door leads to the castle?
Guard 3: Uh…(to Guard 4) What do you think? Really? (to Sarah) Yes.
Sarah: Then the other door leads to the castle and this door leads to certain death.
Guard 3: How do you know? He could be telling the truth.
Sarah: But then you wouldn't be. So if you said yes, the answer is no.
Guard 3: But, I could be telling the truth.
Sarah: Then he would be lying. So if you told me that he said yes, the answer would still be no.
Guard 3: Is that right?
Guard 1: I don't know. I've never understood it.
Sarah: No, it's right. I've figured it out. I could never do it before, I think I'm getting smarter. It's a piece of cake. (Walks through the door she picked and almost immediately falls through a trap door into the Helping Hand tunnel.)
(The hands catch her before she falls all the way to the bottom.
Sarah: Yuck! Help! Stop it! Help
Hands: What do you mean "Help"? We are helping. We're helping hands.
Sarah: You're hurting.
Hands: Would you like us to let go?
(They let go.)
(They catch her again.)
Hands: Well then, come on. Which way?
Sarah: Which way?
Hands: Up or down?
Hands: Come on! Come on! We haven't got all day! Well it's a big decision to make. Which way do you want to go, hmmm? Yes, which way?
Sarah: Well, since I'm pointed that way, I guess I'll go down.
Hands: She chose down. She chose down?
Sarah: Was that wrong?
Hands: Too late now. Ha ha ha.
(They let go of her and she falls down into a darkened room.)
Sarah: Ahhhh! AAH!
(Castle, Throne Room)
Jareth: She's in the Oubliette.
Jareth: Shut up. She never should have made it this far. She should have given up by now.
Goblin: She'll never give up.
Jareth: The dwarf is about to lead her back to the beginning. She'll give up when she realizes she has to start all over again. (laughs) Well, laugh.
(It's completely dark. Sarah hears some footsteps.)
Sarah: Who's there?
(He lights a candle so they can see around the room.)
Hoggle: Ya ha ha ha.
Sarah: Oh, it's you.
Hoggle: Oh, yes well… I knew you were going to get into trouble the minute I saw you so I've come to give you a hand. (sees her looking around.) Oh, you're looking around. I suppose you've noticed there ain't no doors. Only the hole. This is an Oubliette. Labyrinth's full of them.
Sarah: Oh, I didn't know that.
Hoggle: Don't act so smart. You probably don't even know what an Oubliette is.
Sarah: Do you?
Hoggle: Yes. It's a place you put people to forget about them. What you've got to do is get out of here and it just so happens that I know a short cut out of the whole Labyrinth.
Sarah: No! I'm not giving up now. I've come too far. No, I'm doing okay.
Hoggle: Of course you are. But it gets a lot worse from here on in.
Sarah: Why are you so concerned about me?
Hoggle: Uh, what? Well, I am, that's all. Nice young girl, terrible black Oubliette.
Sarah: You like jewelry, don't you?
Sarah: If you help me solve the Labyrinth, I'll give you this. (shows him her bracelet.) You like it don't you?
Hoggle: Uh…so, so…
Sarah: Oh, ok.
Hoggle: Tell you what, you give me the bracelet and I'll show you the way out of the whole Labyrinth.
Sarah: You were gonna do that anyway.
Hoggle: Yes, well that's what would make it a particularly nice gesture on your part.
Sarah: No, I'll tell you what…take me as far as you can, then I'll do it on my own.
Hoggle: What is that, anyway?
Hoggle: Oohhh. Well, I don't promise nothing, but I'll take you as far as I can, then you're on your own, right?
Hoggle: Right. (She gives him the bracelet) Cor! Plastic. Here we go. (lifts a door up from the floor and places it against a wall. He pulls out a set of keys and opens the door one way revealing a broom closet.) Ah. Da dum! Damn closet! (closes the door) Well, can't be right all the time. (locks the door and then unlocks it and opens it another way, revealing a tunnel entrance.) Ah, this is it! Come on then. (laughs) This way!
(They enter the tunnel and start walking. There are many rockfaces on the walls that are giving them false information.)
Rockface: Don't go on.
Rockface: Go back while you still can.
Rockface: This is not the way.
Rockface: Take heed, and go no further.
Rockface: Beware! Beware!
Rockface: Soon it will be too late.
Hoggle: Ignore them. They're just false alarms. You get them in the Labyrinth, especially when you're on the right track.
Rockface: Oh, no you're not.
Hoggle: Oh, shut up!
Rockface: Sorry, just doing my job.
Rockface: Beware, for the…
Hoggle: Just forget it!
Rockface: Oh, please! I haven't said it for such a long time.
Hoggle: Oh, all right. But don't expect a big reaction.
Rockface: No, no, no…of course not. (clears his throat.) Beware! For the path you take will lead to certain destruction! Thank you very much.
(A crystal ball rolls by them and they follow it.)
Sarah: Uh oh.
Jareth: (in disguise) Ah. What have we here?
Hoggle: Ah, nothing.
Jareth: Nothing? Nothing? (throws of his disguise) Nothing, tra la la.
Hoggle: Your majesty! What a nice surprise!
Jareth: Hello, Hedgewart.
Jareth: Hoggle, are you helping this girl?
Hoggle: H-h-helping? In what sense?
Jareth: In the sense that you were leading her towards the castle.
Hoggle: I was taking her back to the beginning.
Hoggle: I told her I would help her, a little trickery on my part, but actually…
Jareth: What is that plastic thing round your wrist?
Hoggle: Oh. Oh, this! Oh, my goodness. Where did this come from?
Jareth: If I thought for one second that you were betraying me, I'd be forced to suspend you head first into the bog of eternal stench!
Hoggle: No, your majesty! Not the eternal stench!
Jareth: Oh yes, Hoggle! And you, Sarah. How are you enjoying my Labyrinth?
Sarah: It's a piece of cake.
Jareth: Really? Then how about upping the stakes? (turns the clock forward a couple of hours)
Sarah: That's not fair!
Jareth: You say that so often. I wonder what your basis for comparison is. You say the Labyrinth's a piece of cake? Well, let's see how you deal with this little slice. (takes the crystal ball and throws it down the tunnel. It then turns into some type of machine that's heading right for Sarah and Hoggle. Jareth disappears.)
Hoggle: Oh, no! Not the cleaners!
(They run, Hoggle falls down but Sarah helps him up)
Sarah: Oh! You okay? Come on! Faster
(They manage to knock down a section of the tunnel and get inside. They then watch as the Cleaners go by harmlessly.)
Hoggle: Oh! The cleaners! The bog of stench! You sure got his attention. Ahh! This is what we need…a ladder. Follow me. (He begins to climb the ladder.)
Sarah: I can't trust you. You were taking me back to the beginning.
Hoggle: I wasn't. I told him that to throw him of the scent.
Sarah: How can I believe anything you say?
Hoggle: Let me put it this way. What choice have you got?
Sarah: You're right.
Hoggle: See, you've got to understand my position. I'm a coward, and Jareth scares me.
Sarah: What kind of position is that?
Hoggle: No position. That's my point. You wouldn't be so brave if you'd ever smelt the Bog of Eternal Stench. It's, it's, ahhh…yuck.
Sarah: Is that all it does is smell?
Hoggle: Believe me that's enough. But the worst thing is if you put so much as a foot in the Bog of Stench you'll smell bad for the rest of your life. It'll never wash off. (comes to the top of the ladder.) Ahh, here we are then. (climbs out into the Labyrinth.) You're on your own from now on.
Hoggle: That's it. I quit.
Sarah: Wait a minute. Hoggle!
Hoggle: I said I'd take you as far as I could.
Sarah: You little cheat. You nasty little cheat!
Hoggle: Now don't try to embarrass me. I've got no pride.
Sarah: Oh yeah? (She grabs his bag of jewels off his belt and holds it high where he can't get to them.)
Hoggle: But them's my jewels! (Reaching up as far as he can to try and get them back.) Oh! You give them back! Give them back! Give those back to me!
Sarah: Now, there's the castle. Which way should we try?
Hoggle: Them's my rightful property! It's not fair!
Sarah: No, it isn't. But that's the way it is.
(They turn and see a very old man walking towards them. He has a live chicken that he wears as a hat.)
Sarah: (to the old man) Excuse me, please, but can you help me?
Wiseman: Oh! A young girl.
Hat: Who? Who? Who?
Wiseman: (looks at Hoggle) And who is this?
Sarah: My friend. (Hoggle gives her a funny look.)
Wiseman: Oh. What can I do for you?
Sarah: I have to the castle at the center of the Labyrinth. Do you know the way?
Wiseman: Oh, yes. Huh. You want to go to the castle?
Hat: How that for brainpower, huh?
Wiseman: Be quiet!
Hat: Ah, nuts.
Wiseman: Sometimes the way forward is also the way back.
Hat: Aye! Will you listen to this crap!
Wiseman: Will you please be quiet!
Hat: All right.
Wiseman: All right.
Hat: All right. Sorry.
Wiseman: Quite often, young lady, it seems like we're not getting anywhere, when in fact…
Hat: We are.
Wiseman: We are.
Sarah: I'm not getting anywhere at the moment.
Hat: Ha! Join the club. (Looks down and sees that the old man has fallen asleep.) I think that's your lot. Please leave a contribution in the little box.
(Sarah reaches for Hoggle's bag of jewels.)
Hoggle: Don't you dare! Them's mine!
Sarah: Well, I guess I can spare this. (takes a ring off her finger and drops it in the box.)
Hat: Gracias Senorita.
Hoggle: You didn't have to give him that. He didn't tell you nothing. (they leave)
Hat: Well, well then. There go a couple of suckers. (snore) Ah, it's so stimulating being your hat.
(Another part of the Labyrinth)
Hoggle: Why did you say I was your friend?
Sarah: Because you are. You're not much of a friend, but you're the only one I've got. Do you hear something?
Sarah: No, that's all right.
Hoggle: Friend, huh? I like that. I ain't never been no one's friend before.
(Suddenly they hear something screaming/growling.)
Hoggle: (scared) Oh! Good-bye!
Sarah: Wait a minute! Are you my friend or not?
Hoggle: No! Hoggle ain't no one's friend. He looks after himself, like everyone. Hoggle is Hoggle's friend. (he runs off)
Sarah: Hoggle! You coward!!
Sarah: Well, I'm not afraid. Things aren't always what they seem in this place.
(She turns the corner and sees Ludo hung upside down. Some guards from the palace are making a sport of him.)
Goblin: Try this for size, you big Yeti!
Goblin: We got you now, fuzzball! (laughs)
(The Goblin Guards go after Ludo with a type of stick with a little creature on the end. The creature bites whatever it comes in contact with, which just happens to be Ludo.)
Sarah: (to herself) If I only had something to throw…
(Ludo howls and suddenly a hand sized rock appears at Sarah's feet. She sees it and picks it up.)
Goblin: Bit him on the teriyaki! Saki to him! Saki to him! (laughs)
(Sarah throws the rock and it hits one of the guards on the head and it swings his helmet around so he can't see.)
Goblin: Oh, what happened?!
Goblin: Who turned out the lights? I can't see. Ahh!!
(He runs into another goblin and hits him with the little creature who bites him.)
Goblin: Hey, why'd you bite me?
Goblin: Who bite who?
Goblin: Why'd you bite me?
Goblin: I can't see! I can't see!
(Sarah throws another rock.)
Goblin: We're under attack! Retreat!!
Goblin: Oh, my aching tushi!
(The goblins all run off and still try to get away from Sarah and they end up getting lost in the Labyrinth. As soon as they're gone Sarah goes up to Ludo and tries to help him.)
Sarah: Now stop that.
Ludo: Yarrgh!! Hmm?
Sarah: That's no way to treat someone who's helping you.
Sarah: Don't you want me to help you down?
Ludo: Ludo down.
Sarah: Ludo? Is that your name?
Sarah: Oh, you seem like such a nice beast. Well, I certainly hop you are what you seem.
Sarah: Just hang on. I'll get you down. Just a second. Uh! (Ludo falls to the ground.) Oh, I'm sorry. Oh! Ludo, are you hurt?
Ludo: Oh…ah…huh? Oh. Friend?
Sarah: That's right, Ludo. I'm Sarah.
Ludo: Sarah. Ah…oh!
Sarah: Oh, here, let me help you. You okay?
Ludo: Sarah. Sara friend. Yeah!
Sarah: No, wait. Just a second. I want to ask you something.
Sarah: Do you know the way to the castle at the center of the Labyrinth?
Sarah: You don't know either? I wonder if anyone knows how to get through this Labyrinth.
(Elsewhere in the Labyrinth)
(Hoggle is walking along all by himself.)
Hoggle: Get through the Labyrinth? Get through the Labyrinth? On thing's for sure, she'll never get through the Labyrinth. Ah…
(Back to Sarah and Ludo.)
(Sarah turns away and when she turns back there are two doors where there were none before and both of the doors have knockers. The knockers look like faces and one of them has the actual knocker hanging in it's mouth, and the other has the knocker hanging from it's ears.)
Sarah: Where did they come from?
Sarah: What do you think, Ludo? Which should choose out of these two ugly characters?
Knocker1: It's very rude to stare!
Sarah: Oh! I was just wondering which door to choose.
Knocker2: (unintelligible) (he's the one with the knocker in his mouth.)
Knocker1: Don't talk with your mouth full.
Knocker2: (muffled) I'm not talking with my mouth full!
Sarah: I can't understand you. (she takes the knocker out of his mouth.)
Knocker1: What were you saying.
Knocker2: Ah…oh…oh…it is so good to get that thing out!
Sarah: What were you saying?
Knocker2: It's no good talking to him, he's deaf as a post.
Knocker1: Mumble, mumble, mumble. You're a wonderful conversationalist.
Knocker2: You should talk, all you do is moan.
Knocker1: No good. (sniff) Can't hear you.
(Knocker2 sighs in frustration.)
Sarah: Where do these doors lead?
Knocker2: Search me, we're just the knockers.
Sarah: Oh. (she tries to open the door and can't.) How do I get through?
Knocker2: Knock, and the door will open.
(Sarah, turns to get the knocker from Ludo only to discover that he's put it in his mouth.)
Ludo: Huh…huh…(Sarah takes the knocker out of his mouth.) Ah…
Knocker2: I don't want that back in my mouth. (closes up his mouth so he won't have to take the knocker back.)
Sarah: I want to knock.
Knocker1: Doesn't want his ring back in his mouth, eh? Can't say I blame him.
(Sarah figures out a way to get him to open his mouth. She plugs his nose so he can't breathe and after a minute his mouth pops open so he can take a breath and she sticks the ring back in his mouth.)
Sarah: Sorry. (she knocks and the door opens.)
Knocker2: (muffled) That's all right, I'm used to it.
Sarah: Come on Ludo.
(The go through the door and it slams shut behind them. They are in a forest.)
Ludo: Huh? Oooh…
(All the Goblins are lounging around the throne room. Toby is sitting on Jareth's lap and he burps.)
Jareth: You're welcome.
(Toby starts to cry.)
Jareth: He's a lively little chap. I think I'll call him Jareth. He's got my eyes.
(The Goblins all laugh.)
Ludo: Ludo scared.
Sarah: Oh, give me your hand. Come on. Imagine a big thing like you being scared.
Sarah: (lets go of Ludo's hand and walks a few steps in front of him.) See, Ludo, there's nothing to be afraid of.
(Ludo falls through a trap door and disappears.)
Sarah: Ludo? Ludo? Ludo, where are you? Ludo!
(Hoggle is still walking.)
Sarah: (os) Hoggle, help!
Hoggle: I'm coming, Sarah!
(He turns back the way he was coming from and sees Jareth.)
Jareth: Well, if it isn't you. And where are you going?
Hoggle: Uh, well, the little lady give me the slip, but I just hears her now. So I was about to lead her back to the beginning like you told me.
Jareth: I see. For one moment, I thought you were running to help her. But, uh, no, not after my warnings, that would be stupid.
Hoggle: You bet it would! Me? Help her? After your warnings? (laughs)
Jareth: Oh, dear. Poor Hoghead.
Jareth: I've just noticed your lovely jewels are missing.
Hoggle: Uh, oh, yes, so they are. My lovely jewels, missing.
Sarah: (os) Ludo!
Hoggle: I'd better find them. But first, I'm off to take the lady to the beginning of the Labyrinth.
Jareth: Wait! I've got a much better plan. Give her this. (tosses Hoggle a peach.)
Hoggle: W…what is it?
Jareth: It's a present.
Hoggle: Will it hurt her?
Jareth: Now, why the concern?
Hoggle: I won't do nothing to harm her.
Jareth: Come, Hogbrain! I'm surprised at you, losing your head over a girl.
Hoggle: I ain't lost my head.
Jareth: You don't think a young girl could like a repulsive little scab like you, do you?
Hoggle: Well, she said we was…
Jareth: What? Bosom companions? Friends?
Hoggle: Ahh…don't matter.
Jareth: You'll give her that, Hoggle, or I'll dip you straight first into the Bog of Eternal Stench!
Hoggle: Yes, right. (starts to leave, but stops as Jareth continues talking.)
Jareth: And, Hoggle, if she ever kisses you, I'll turn you into a prince.
Hoggle: You…you will?
Jareth: Prince of the Land of Stench. (laughs)
Sarah: Ludo? (looks around) Ludo? (She looks around as she hears some noises.) What's going on?
Firey: Yah! (laughs) Yahoo!
Sarah: What do you want?
Firey: We're out to have a good time.
Firey: That's right!
Don't have no problems…
Ain't got no suitcase…
Ain't got no clothes to worry about…
Ain't got no real estate…
Or jewelry or gold mines to hang me up…
I just throw in my hand…
Throw in his hand…
With the chilliest bunch in the land…
They don't look like much…
But they're sure chilly chilly…
They're positively glow glow huh!
Chilly down with fire…
Think small with fire!
Don't lose your head…
When things get wild…
Chilly down, Chilly down with fire.
Hey, I'm a wild child!
Walk tall with fire…
Whoo! Walk tall!
Good times, Bad food.
(A Firey takes his eyes out and rolls them.)
(They all laugh)
So when things get too rough
Your skin is dragging on the ground
And even down looks up
Down look up
We can show you a good time
Show you a good time
And we don't charge nothin'
Nothin' at all
Just strut your nasty stuff
Wiggle in the middle, yeah
Get down talking, by god
Chilly down with
Think small with fire
Bad Hep with fire
Hey listen up!
When your things get fire, chilly down, chilly down
Shake your pretty little head.
Tap your pretty little feet.
Good times, bad food.
Come on, come on.
(They grab at Sarah's head trying to take it off.)
Sarah: Oh! Oh!
Firey: Hey! Her head don't come off!
Sarah: Of course it doesn't!
Firey: She's right, it's stuck on.
Firey: Where're you going with a head like that?
Firey: I know what we can do. Take of her head!
Firey: Yeah, let's take her apart!
(They continue to try and take her head off. Sarah retaliates by taking off all of their heads and throwing them in different directions.)
Firey: Hey, lady, that's his head. (she takes his head off and throws it) Hey! That's my head!
Firey: That's a friend of mine! What are you doing?
(Sarah runs for it.)
Firey: Hey lady! It's against the rules to throw other people's heads.
Firey: You're only allowed to throw your own head.
Firey: That's right!
Firey: Where's the referee?
Firey: Now we take your head off!
Firey: Stop her somebody!
Firey: Come back, little lady. Lady!
Sarah: Leave me alone!
(Sarah is backed up against a wall.)
Firey: We get a free throw!
Firey: Don't you want us to take your head off?
(Suddenly a rope is thrown down.)
Firey: You can look like us!
(Sarah grabs the rope and starts to climb.)
Sarah: Leave me alone!
Firey: Take of your head!
Firey: An ear! Take off your ear!
Firey: The games not over!
Hoggle: Shoo! Go away!
(Sarah makes it to the top.)
Sarah: Hoggle. You've come to help me. (She grabs him in a hug, and then kisses his cheek.)
Hoggle: No! Don't kiss me! Don't kiss me!
Sarah: Aaaaaahhh! Hoggle! Hold on!
(They fall through a hole and end up just above the Bog of Stench.)
Hoggle: No! Ooh!
Sarah: Oh, my god!
Sarah: Uh, what is it?
Hoggle: The Bog of Eternal Stench. Uh!
Sarah: I've never smelt anything like it. It's like…like…
Hoggle: It doesn't matter what it's like. It's the Bog of Eternal Stench. (Suddenly the stones under their feet begin to give way.) Help!
Sarah: Hold on!
Hoggle: What did you have to go and do a thing like that for?
Sarah: Do what? You mean rescue you?
Hoggle: What? No! You kissed me!
Sarah: Aaah! AAH!
Hoggle: Oh, my gosh.
Sarah: Don't pretend to be so hard. I know you came back to help me, and I know you're my friend.
Hoggle: Did not! Am not! I've just come to get me property back. Oh, and, uh…give you, uh…
Sarah: Give me what?
Hoggle: Oh! Aaahh!
Sarah: Oh! Hoggle! Aaaah!(The stones give way fully, and they fall to the ground just beside the Bog. Ludo is there already.)
Sarah: Where's Hoggle?
(Muffled shouting can be heard. They both look around.)
Hoggle: Get off of me!
(Ludo gets up.)
Sarah: Oh, here! Hoggle. It's okay. This is Ludo. He's a friend, too.
Hoggle: A what?
Sarah: Oh, you're right.
Hoggle: Oh, my god! Oh! Uh…(Covers his mouth.)
(Sarah looks around and spots a bridge.)
Sarah: There's a bridge. Come on.
Hoggle: Watch it! You step in this stuff and you'll stink forever.
(They begin to start across the bridge but Sir Didymus stops them.)
Didymus: Stop! Stop I say!
Sarah: We have to get across.
Didymus: Without my permission, no one may cross.
Sarah: I don't have much time.
Hoggle: We've got to get out of this stench.
Ludo: Smell bad!
Didymus: Stench? Of what speaketh thou?
Sarah: The smell.
Didymus: I smell nothing. I live by my sense of smell. (Takes a good sniff.) The air is sweet and fragrant. (back to the matter at hand) And no one may pass without my permission!
Ludo: Smell Bad!
Hoggle: Oh, get out of my way!
Didymus: (stepping in front of Hoggle) I'm sworn to do my duty!
Sarah: Let us get across.
Didymus: Hold! (points his spear at them) I don't want to hurt you!
(Hoggle quickly darts around Didymus and keeps on running.)
Sarah: Hoggle! What are you doing?
(Ludo picks up Didymus by picking up his spear.)
Didymus: Let go of my staff! Yah! Ha ha!
(Didymus climbs up onto Ludo.)
Didymus: All right then, I can conquer this mountain.
(Ludo growls and tries to get Didymus off of him.)
Didymus: Whoa! Thou must do better than that.
(Every time Ludo tries to grab him, Didymus ducks out of the way.)
Didymus: Give up! Ha ha! Enough!
Didymus: Never have I met my match in battle. Yet this noble knight has fought me to a standstill.
Sarah: Are you all right, Ludo?
Didymus: Sir, Ludo. I, Sir Didymus, yield to thee. Come, let us be brother's henceforth, and fight for the right as one!
(Ludo helps Didymus down.)
Didymus: Thank you very much.
Ludo: Ludo get brother.
Didymus: Well met, Sir Ludo.
Sarah: Good. Come on.
(Sarah tries to cross the bridge again, but Didymus once again gets in her path.)
Didymus: You forget my sacred vow, my lady. I cannot let you pass.
Sarah: But you just said that Ludo is your brother.
Didymus: I must defend my oath to the death.
Ludo: The smell!
Sarah: Let's handle this logically. What exactly have you sworn?
Didymus: I have sworn with my life's blood that no one shall pass without my permission.
Sarah: Well, may we have your permission?
Didymus: Well, I , uh…yes.
Sarah: Thank you, noble sir.
Didymus: My lady.
(Sarah walks past him and begins to cross the bridge. It creaks and groans as she crosses.)
Didymus: Have no fear. This bridge has lasted for 1,000 years.
(He taps the bridge with his staff and it begins to crumble to pieces.)
(Sarah grabs onto a tree branch that's over head, and hangs on for dear life as the bridge crumbles under her feet.)
Didymus: It seemed solid enough.
Didymus: Fair maiden, I will save thee…somehow.
(Hoggle comes back around the corner as Ludo begins to howl.)
Didymus: Canst thou sit and howl when yon maiden needs our help?
(Ludo continues to howl as a very large boulder rolls into the Bog and settles just under Sarah's feet. She gently lets go of the tree branch and stands on the boulder. More rocks pop up from within the bog and form a sort of rock bridge.)
Sarah: That's incredible, Ludo.
Didymus: Canst thou summon up the very rocks?
Ludo: Sure! Rocks friends.
(Hoggle holds his nose as he helps Sarah across the new 'bridge'.)
Hoggle: Oh dear.
Sarah: Thanks Hoggle!
(Ludo begins walking to the other side of the Bog.)
Didymus: Sir Ludo, wait for me! (he turns and calls to his dog) Oh, Ambrosias. It's all right Ambrosias. (The dog is hiding behind a rock and doesn't want to come out.) You can come out now. Come on. (he comes out) That a boy! My loyal steed. Steady. (He hops up into the saddle) Up! Forward. Ah, steady! Steady boy! Come on, Ambrosias. Just close you eyes and go!
(They quickly go over the rock bridge.)
Sarah: Let's get out of here.
Didymus: (to Hoggle) Excuse us.
(Hoggle reaches out to drop the peach into the Bog of Stench.)
Jareth: (os) I wouldn't do that if I were you.
Hoggle: I can't give it to her.
Didymus: Well, come on then. We should reach the castle well before day.
(Jareth sits on his throne and holds Toby in his lap. He's looking at Sara through a sort of crystal ball.)
Jareth: Look, Sarah. Is this what you're trying to find? So much trouble over such a little thing, but not for long. (to Toby) She'll soon forget all about you, my fine fellow. Just as soon as Hoggle gives her my present.
(Someone's stomach can be heard growling.)
Didymus: Is that my stomach or yours, Ambrosias?
Sarah: Yeah. Well, we can't stop now. (starts looking around) Maybe we can find some berries. (The others, minus Hoggle, continue on ahead.)
Hoggle: Uh, Sarah.
Hoggle: Here. (he thrusts the peach into her hand.)
Sarah: Hoggle! Oh, thank you! You're a lifesaver. (she takes a bite) This tastes strange.
Sarah: Hoggle, what have you done?
Hoggle: Oh, damn you, Jareth! And damn me too! (he runs off.)
Sarah: (sits down.) Everything's dancing.
(Jareth sits in a window of his castle. He holds several crystal balls in his hand. He takes each of them and blows them towards the forest. They float away like they're bubbles.)
(Sarah is still sitting down, feeling the effects of the peach. The crystal balls float by and in one of them she sees a dancer doll. Then it changes and the doll is her. )
(Didymus, Ambrosias, and Ludo have reached the edge of the forest and can see the castle.)
Didymus: Yea, verily! Whoa, Ambrosias! Whoa! (he stops) The castle doth lie yonder, my lady. (pause) My lady? (he turns and realizes Sara isn't there) My lady? My lady? (he spots the crystal balls float by.)
(Sarah is now dressed in a very beautiful ball gown. She looks very lovely. People wearing masks are dancing all around her. She spots Jareth and tries to make her way over to him. He sings.)
Jareth: (sings) There's such a sad love,
Deep in your eyes
A kind of pale jewel
Opened and closed within your eyes
I'll place the sky,
Within your eyes
There's such a fooled heart
Beating so fast
In search of new dreams
A love that will last
Within your heart
I'll place the moon
Within your heart
As the pain sweeps through
Makes no sense for you
Every thrill has gone
Wasn't too much fun at all
But I'll be there for you
As the world falls down
It's falling down
Falling in love
I'll paint you mornings of gold
I'll spin you Valentine evenings
Though we're strangers till now
We're choosing a path
Between the stars
I'll lay my love
Between the stars
(Sarah finally reaches Jareth and they begin to dance.)
As the pain sweeps through
Makes no sense for you
Every thrill has gone
Wasn't too much fun at all
But I'll be there for you
As the world falls down
As the world falls down
Falling in love
(Sarah realizes she's in a fantasy dream. She escapes Jared and takes a char and smashes one of the mirrored walls. It's like a vacuum, and everyone flies every which way.)
(Hoggle sits in front of a fire, all by himself.)
Hoggle: Oh, she'll never forgive me. What have I done? I've lost my only friend, that's what I've done.
(Elsewhere in the Junkyard)
(Sarah lands in the junkyard.)
Sarah: What was I doing? (she looks at the peach and sees a worm crawling out of it.) Oooh! (She throws the peach away, and then goes to get up.)
Junk Lady: Ow! Get off my back! Why don't you look where you're going, young woman, hmm?
Sarah: I was looking…
Junk Lady: Huh? Where were you going?
Sarah: I don't remember.
Junk Lady: You can't look where you're going if you don't know where you're going.
Sarah: I was searching for something.
Junk Lady: Well, look here. Hmmm? (She holds up Lancelot)
Sarah: Lancelot? (she takes him) Thank you.
Junk Lady: That's what you were looking for, wasn't it, my dear?
Sarah: Yes, I forgot.
Junk Lady: Now, why don't you come in here and see if there's anything else you'd like, hmm?
(She leads Sarah over to a curtain, and then pulls the curtain back. It's Sarah's room. Sarah goes and throws herself on the bed.)
Sarah: It was just a dream. I dreamed it all, Lancelot. But it was so real. Let's go see if Daddy's back, okay?
(She goes and opens her bedroom door, and jumps back as the Junk Lady walks in.)
Junk Lady: Better to stay in here, dear. There's nothing you want out there. No, oh no. (pulls something from inside her coat) Oh, what have we got here. (she holds out Lancelot.)
(Sarah takes him, and goes to sit down at the vanity. The Junk Lady goes around the room and starts handing things to Sarah, who just sits there with a bewildered look on her face.)
Junk Lady: Your little bunny rabbit! You like your little bunny rabbit. Yes, yes, yes. Oh, and there's Betsy Boo. Yes, yes, yes. What else have we got? (she looks around and then holds up a pencil box) What's this? Let's have a look. It's a pencil box. Got lots of pencils in it! (she reaches down and holds up a pair of slippers) Here's your panda slippers. You like your panda slippers. You never wanted them thrown away, did you? Now then, what else? Oh, it's little horsie. You love little horsie, don't you? And look at this! You got a printing game, you have. Here's a treasure. (Sarah turns to look at her and she holds out a lipstick.) You'll want that, won't you, my dear? Go on, put it on. Make yourself up…and here's old Flopsie. You'll want her. (By now Sarah has so much stuff piled onto her back she's beginning to look like a junklady too.) Oh, yes. Charlie Bear. There's Charlie Bear for you, hmmm?
Sarah: There was something I was looking for.
Junk Lady: Ah, don't talk nonsense. Everything in the world you've ever cared about is all right here. Here's your little toy candy shop.
Sarah: (she reaches out and picks up a copy of 'Labyrinth' and begins reading from it) "Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the goblin city to take back the child that you have stolen."
Junk Lady: What's the matter, my dear? Don't you like your toys?
Sarah: It's all junk
Junk Lady: Huh? Well, what about this? (she holds up a very pretty music box) This is not junk! Hmmm?
Sarah: Yes it is! I have to save Toby!
(Sarah throws off all of the toys and dolls that the junk lady has piled on her. All of a sudden the walls of the room begin to cave in on them selves. Sarah can hear Didymus shouting as she tries to climb out of the room.)
Didymus: (os) My lady! (barks) Are you all right?
Ludo: (os) Sarah?
Didymus: My lady!
(They help Sarah climb out of the room, and now they are all back in the junkyard.)
Didymus: Fair Maiden, thank goodness. Thou art safe at last.
Sarah: Where are we?
Ludo: Sarah back.
Didymus: My lady, look! We're almost there. The gates to the Goblin City.
Sarah: Ludo, Sir Didymus, let's go quickly. We don't have much time.
Didymus: Ambrosious, forward!
(Hoggle watches them head for the gates from afar.)
Hoggle: Oh, no!
Didymus: Open the door!
Sarah: Shh! Sir Didymus, we must go quietly.
Didymus: (barks) Open up! Open up right now!
Sarah: You'll wake the guard. Quiet!
Didymus: Well, let them all wake up!
Didymus: (He goes over to the guard and shouts in his ear as he sleeps.) I shall fight you all to the death. (barks) (The guard continues to sleep.)
Sarah: Please, Sir Didymus, for my sake, hush!
Didymus: But of course. For thee, anything. I'm not a coward?
Didymus: Then I shall fight anyone, anywhere, anyplace, anytime! (Sarah hushes him by placing a finger on his nose.)
Sarah: We all know. Now hush. Now, quietly. (They begin to make their way into the city.)
Didymus: Ambrosias, be quiet now. (pause) I don't see why we have to be so quiet, it's only a Goblin City.
Sarah: I smell trouble.
(Suddenly the doors in front of them slam shut. They are trapped. The doors in front of them close together to form a large metal guard. It is a machine. It wields an ax in one hand and is about 10 feet tall. Ludo growls at it.)
Sarah: Come on Ludo! (The doors behind them slam shut and spikes pop up. They are trapped.) Oh no!(Ludo growls again.) What is that?
Giant: Who goes? (Didymus barks at him) Who goes? (Didymus barks again and Ludo growls at him.) Who goes?
(The giant swings his ax and they all duck.)
Sarah: Watch out!
(Ambrosias freaks out.)
Didymus: Will you come here! Ambrosias, come here right now! Please come. You're embarrassing me.
Sarah: Oh, Ludo. (She spots Hoggle who is running along the wall towards the Giant.) Hoggle!
(Hoggle jumps onto the Giants head and pulls off part of the helmet.)
(Since it's a machine, the drivers seat is in the heat of the Giant. A goblin sits there working the controls.)
Hoggle: (as the ax swings again.) Look out! (to Goblin) Get out of there! (he tosses him out) Bombs away!
Goblin: (yells as he falls) That wasn't very nice.
(Ludo growls at him and the goblin runs away.)
Hoggle: My turn now. (he climbs into the drivers seat, but he can't work the controls) How do you drive this?
(The ax is continually swinging back and forth.)
Sarah: Drop the ax!
Hoggle: I'm trying:
Didymus: (to Ambrosias) Come here at once! (whistles)
Hoggle: Oh, where's reverse? Ahhhh! (The controls start to smoke.)
Sarah: Get out of there, Hoggle!
Hoggle: Abandon Ship! (he jumps just as the giant blows up)
Sarah: Hoggle! Oh, Hoggle, are you all right?
Hoggle: I'm not asking to be forgiven. I ain't ashamed of myself. Jareth made me give you that peach. I don't care what you think. I told you I was a coward, and I ain't interested in being friends.
Sarah: I forgive you, Hoggle.
Hoggle: (surprised) You…you do?
Didymus: And I commend you. Rarely have I seen such courage. You are valiant, Sir Hoggle.
Hoggle: Huh? I am?
Ludo: Hoggle and Ludo friends.
Hoggle: We are?
Sarah: Here are your things, Hoggle. Thanks for your help.
Hoggle: Well, what are we waiting for. Let's go get that rat who calls himself Jareth.
Didymus: Ambrosias, it's safe now. Nothing to be afraid of.
(Jareth and the other goblins are lounging around the throne room. The head of the guard runs into the room, out of breath.)
Guard: Your Highness! Your Highness! Your Highness, the girl! The girl who ate the peach and forgot everything!
Jareth: What of her?
Guard: She, the monster, Sir Didymus, and the dwarf, they made it through the gate and they're on their way to the castle!
Jareth: What! Stop her! Call out the guards! (to goblin) Take the baby and hide it.
Jareth: She must be stopped! Do something! Come on, move! Move!
Sarah: I think we're going to make it!
Hoggle: Oh, piece of cake!
(All of a sudden they are surrounded by Goblins.)
Goblin: Company halt! Lancers, ready! Cannon, fire! Charge! Charge! Charge!
Sarah: Oh, run!
Didymus: Ambrosias, turn about!
Sarah: Quick! This way!
(Sarah, Hoggle, and Ludo go one way. Sir Didymus goes another way.)
Didymus: Charge! (Ambrosias runs the other way.) No, not that way! You're going the wrong way! The battle's behind us! Ambrosias, can we please talk about this? Sit!
Sarah: Careful. (she looks around trying to avoid the goblins) Ok. Through here. Ok, come on guys.
Didymus: Ambrosias, turn around this second or I will never feed you again. (Ambrosias screeches to a halt.) That's better. (they turn around only to find themselves surrounded by goblins, Ambrosias growls) Don't worry. I think we've got them surrounded.
(Another part of the city)
Sarah: Didymus? Where's Didymus?
Goblin: Fire! (he shoots the cannon) I hit something, yes? (looks around) No?
Sarah: We've got to find Didymus. Down this way.
(He and Didymus face off, preparing to charge each other.)
Didymus: (growls) Charge! (laughs) Tallyho! (Ambrosias bucks and throws him off, and then slinks into a house and shuts the door.) Ambrosias, you coward! Oh! Ambrosias!!
(Goblin House - Outside)
(Sarah and the others, minus Didymus, run up.)
Sarah: Oh! Quick, in here!
(Sarah and Hoggle run in, but the door is too small for Ludo.)
Hoggle: Oh, how's Ludo going to get in?
(Ludo simply rips open the wall to get in. He walks in and then closes the wall behind him.)
Goblin: You in there, you're surrounded!
(Goblins start trying to get in through the windows, but Hoggle and Sarah fight them off. Ludo climbs up and throws the thatch roof off of the house and looks down at the goblins surrounding them.)
Ludo: Huh? Surrounded?
Sarah: Get out! (to Goblin) Ludo! Call the rocks!!
(Ludo begins to do just that, but he turns and spots a Goblin trying to climb in through the roof.)
Ludo: Huh? (he knocks the goblin off the roof.)
(Ludo begins to howl.)
(The Goblin's begin to try coming in through the window.)
Goblin: Take that!
Sarah: Ah! Hungry! (she smashes some food into the Goblin's face.) Great! (he falls out of the window) Ludo!!
Didymus: Ambrosias, unlock this door! (he hears a noise behind him, and turns to find all of the guards with their spears pointed at him.) Huh? So, had enough have you? All right, then, throw down your weapons, and I'll see that you're well treated.
(Ludo howls again.)
(As Didymus stands surrounded suddenly the gates open up and a flood of rocks come in and level his opponents.)
Didymus: Next time, surrender!
(As Ludo continues to howl, rocks roll throughout the city. They go after the Goblins, until soon the way is clear for our good guys to get to the castle.)
Hoggle: Let's go!
(They head out of the house.)
(He aims a cannon at them, and fires.)
Sarah: Whoa, nellie! Duck!
Hoggle: Ha ha, missed!
Sarah: Ok, come on!
Goblin: (fires again) Fire! (But the cannon backfires) Hey, I just fired you.
Sarah: This way!
Goblin: Now we have you!
(They get pummled by rocks.)
Hoggle: And now you don't!
(Sounds of gunfire)
Goblin: Hey, no problem.
Sarah: Sir Didymus!
Didymus: Coming! Hi-ho, Silver!
(They make their way up into the castle.)
Didymus: Whoa, boy! Whoa, big fella!
Sarah: This way!
Didymus: Whoa! Steady boy! Ah, yes, up you go. Up, up! Come on.
Sarah: No, he must have gone that way.
Hoggle: Well then, come on!
Sarah: No, I have to go on alone.
Didymus: But why?
Hoggle: Yes, why?
Sarah: Because that's the way it's done.
Didymus: Well, if that is the way it is done, then that is the way you must do it. But should you need us…
Hoggle: Yes, should you need us…
Sarah: I'll call. Thank you, all of you. (she runs up the stairs)
(Sarah walks into a doorway and we see that there are stairs all over the place. And all of the stairs go in different directions. She walks up, down, backwards, forwards to catch up with Toby, who is crawling all over the place, chasing one of Jareth's crystal balls. Jareth watches and sings from afar.)
Jareth: (song) How you've turned my world, you precious thing
You starve and near exhaust me
Everything I've done, I've done for you
I move the stars for no one
You've fun so long
You've run so far,
Your eyes can be so cruel
Just as I can be so cruel
Though I do believe in you.
Jareth: (song, cont.) Yes, I do.
Live without your sunlight
Love without your heartbeat.
I can't live within you.
Sarah: Toby! (she finally spots him sitting on a ledge. She looks down at him from a staircase above. She jumps to reach him, but when she lands, everything has changed. Toby is nowhere around. She looks up and Jareth walks towards her.)
Sarah: Give me the child.
Jareth: Sarah, beware. I have been generous up til now, but I can be cruel.
Sarah: Generous? What have you done that's generous?
Jareth: Everything! Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken, I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down and I have done it all for you! I'm exhausted from living up to your expectations of me. Isn't that generous?
Sarah: Through dangers untold, and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City. For my will is as strong as yours, and my…
Jareth: Stop! Wait! Look, Sarah. Look at what I'm offering you. Your dreams.
Sarah: And kingdom is great.
Jareth: I ask for so little. Just let me rule you, and you can have everything that you want.
Sarah: (trying to remember the next line) Kingdom is great…damn! I can never remember that line.
Jareth: Just fear me, love me, do as I say, and I will be your slave.
Sarah: My kingdom is great…my kingdom is great…(she remembers, and looks up at Jareth) You have no power over me. You have no power over me!
(The clock chimes. Her time in the Labyrinth is over. Jareth throws up his hands in regret as the Labyrinth world collapses around them. As the final chime of the clock sounds Sarah finds herself in her own house. Jareth has turned into an owl again and he flies out the window. Sarah calls out for Toby as she runs up the stairs.)
Sarah: Toby. Toby! Toby? (she walks into her parents room) Toby? (she spots him lightly dozing in the crib.) Here you are. (She picks up Lancelot off the bed and gives it to Toby.) I'd like Lancelot to belong to you now. (She turns off the light and goes out into the hallway, leaving the door ajar.)
(Sarah sits at her vanity putting things away. The sound of a door opening can be heard, and suddenly we hear Sarah's father call up to her from downstairs.)
Father: (os) We're home. Sarah? Are you home?
Sarah: (she turns away from the vanity to yell towards the bedroom door.) Yeah! Yes, I'm home. (she turns back and sees Ludo in the mirror.)
Ludo: Good-bye, Sarah.
(She turns to look over her shoulder but he's not there. She turns back to the mirror and Ludo turns into Didymus.)
Didymus: And remember, fair maiden, should you need us…
(Didymus turns into Hoggle.)
Hoggle: Yes, should you need us…for any reason at all…
Sarah: I need you, Hoggle.
Hoggle: (hopeful) You…you do?
Sarah: I don't know why, but every now and again in my life, for no reason at all, I need you. All of you.
Hoggle: Oh, you do? Well, why didn't you say so?
(All of a sudden all of the creatures from the Labyrinth are in Sarah's bedroom. She hops up from the vanity and goes to hug them all. Music plays and there are streamers everywhere. She runs over and hugs Hoggle, then she gets up to hug Ludo.)
(She then hugs Didymus. A Firey on her bookshelf starts laughing.)
Didymus: I say, does anyone want to play a game of Scrabble?
(Jareth, as the owl, watches all of this from outside, before finally flying off.)
Jareth: (Reprise of 'Underground')
