Moana (2016) Poster

(I) (2016)

Dwayne Johnson: Maui



  • Moana : Okay, first, I am not a princess. I'm the daughter of the chief.

    Maui : Same difference.

    Moana : No.

    Maui : If you wear a dress, and have an animal sidekick, you're a princess.

  • Maui : [to Moana]  If you start singing, I'm gonna throw up.

  • Maui : [Using Heihei's beak to sign Moana's oar]  When you use a bird to write with, it's called tweeting.

  • Moana : [Notices a tattoo of a character with flowing hair throwing a baby into the ocean on Maui's back]  How do you get your tattoos?

    Maui : They show up, when I earn 'em.

    Moana : How d'you earn that one? What's that for?

    Maui : That, uh, man's discovery of nun-ya.

    Moana : What's nun-ya?

    Maui : Nun-ya business.

  • Maui : The chicken lives!

  • Maui : [lying face-down on a canoe's outrigger]  If the current's warm, you're going the right way.

    Moana : [putting her hand in the water behind him]  It's cold. Wait, it's getting warmer.

    [seeing a relieved look on his face] 

    Moana : Aah! That is disgusting! What is wrong with you?

  • Maui : Really? Blow dart in my butt cheek?

  • [Maui has just double-crossed Moana by trapping her in a cave and stealing her boat and taking an eternally clueless Heihei with him] 

    Maui : [to Heihei]  And I'm going to love you in ma belly. Now, let's fatten you up, drumstick.

    [Maui puts some corn and seeds in front of Heihei] 

    Maui : [Heihei pauses, and then pecks at a section of the raft floor that doesn't have any seeds or corn. Maui looks on in amazement and shock over Heihei's incredible stupidity] 

  • Maui : [from trailer]  Do you know who Maui is? Only the greatest demi-god of all the Pacific Islands, with his magical fish hook he slowed down the sun, pulled islands out of the sea, battled monsters! And I should know, because I'm Maui

    [to Mini Maui tattoo] 

    Maui : Hey! Let me do this please

  • Maui : All right. I'm out.

    [dives off of Boat] 

  • Maui : [talking about his past]  I wasn't born a demi-god. I had human parents. They took one look and they decided... that they did not want me. So, they threw me into the ocean like I was nothing. Somehow, I was rescued by the Gods. They gave me the fish hook. They made me...


    Maui : ..."Maui".

    [talking normally] 

    Maui : So... Back to the humans I went. I gave them everything. Islands, fire and coconuts. Heh, everything they can never get enough of.

    Moana : You stole the heart... for them. Because you wanted to be loved...

    Maui : [solemnly]  It was *never* enough.

  • Maui : [Teaching Moana to navigate]  You're measuring the stars, not giving the sky a high five.

  • [repeated line] 

    Maui : Cheeeehoooo!

  • Moana : [on Maui's damaged fish hook]  We can fix it.

    Maui : It was made by the gods. You can't fix it!

    Moana : Next time, we'll be more careful. Te Ka was stuck on the barrier islands. It's lava. It can't go in the water. We can find another way around.

    Maui : I'm not going back.

    Moana : What? We still have to restore the heart.

    Maui : My hook is cracked. One more hit and it's over.

    Moana : Maui, you have to restore the heart!

    Maui : Without my hook, I am nothing.

    Moana : That's not true...

    Maui : [shouting]  WITHOUT MY HOOK, I AM *NOTHING*!

    [Moana draws back in shock. Maui drops the heart into Moana's boat, and Moana picks it back up] 

    Moana : We're only here 'cause you stole the heart in the first place.

    Maui : No. We're here because the ocean told you you were special and you believed it.

    Moana : [gathering resolve]  I am Moana of Motonui. You will board my boat...

    Maui : Goodbye, Moana.

    Moana : ...sail across the sea...

    Maui : I'm not killing myself so you can prove something you're not.

    Moana : ...and restore the heart of Te Fiti. The ocean chose me!

    Maui : [bitterly]  It chose wrong.

  • Maui : [from trailer]  Do you who Maui is? The greatest demigod that ever lived, who stopped the sun, who pulled up islands out of the sea, and battled monsters. Do you know why I know all this? That's because *I* am Maui!

  • [Maui is walking past HeiHei, but then doubles back and grabs him by the neck] 

    Maui : [breaking the fourth wall; in high-pitched voice]  Boat snack!

  • [from trailer] 

    Maui : What's a demigod gotta do?

  • Maui : [Moana has just taken off to fight off the kakamora and retrieve the heart, taking the oar with her]  Hey! What am I gonna steer with?

    [gets frustrated] 

    Maui : They're just gonna kill ya!

    [Moana lands on the Kakamora boat. A large group of kakamora turn and look at her] 

    Moana : [smiles bravely]  *Coconuts.*

    [Moana kicks the kakamoras' butt with the oar] 

  • Maui : If the current's warm you're going the right way.

    Moana : [sticks her hand into the water]  It's cold. Wait, it's getting warmer...

    [looks up and sees Maui grinning slyly] 

    Moana : Argh! That is *disgusting*! What is wrong with you?

  • Moana : Not seeing an entrance.

    Maui : Yes, because it only appears after a human sacrifice.

    [Moana gasps] 

    Maui : Kidding! So serious.
