Moana (I) (2016)
Moana: Okay, first, I am not a princess. I'm the daughter of the chief.
Maui: Same difference.
Maui: If you wear a dress, and have an animal sidekick, you're a princess.
[Moana, who is covered in sparkling seashells, is snatched up by Tamatoa]
Tamatoa: [laughing] What have we here? It's a sparkly, shiny... Wait a minute.
[Tosses Moana into the air, making her lose the seashells covering her]
Tamatoa: Ugh! It's a human! What are you doing down here, in the Realm of the Mons-?
[Tamatoa's eyes are twitching differently causing Moana to constantly look back and forth between them]
Tamatoa: Just pick an eye, babe. I can't... I can't concentrate on what I'm saying if you keep... Yeah, pick one. Pick one!
Tamatoa: [Last lines, post-credits scene] Can we be real? If my name was Sebastian and I had a cool Jamaican accent, you'd totally help me. You would. You know you would.
Tamatoa: Are you just trying to get me to talk about myself? Because if you are... I will gladly do so.
Tamatoa: In *song* form!
Maui: [to Moana] If you start singing, I'm gonna throw up.
Tamatoa: [after being flipped by an escaping Moana and Maui] Hey! Hey!... Did you like the song?
[after Moana attempts to sail a boat for the first time and crashes it]
Moana: Are you gonna tell Dad?
Gramma Tala: I'm his mom. I don't have to tell him anything.
Maui: [Using Heihei's beak to sign Moana's oar] When you use a bird to write with, it's called tweeting.
Gramma Tala: In the beginning there was only ocean until the Mother Island emerged. Te Fiti. Her heart held the greatest power ever known. It could create life itself. And Te Fiti shared it with the world. But in time, some began to seek Te Fiti's heart. They believed if they could possess it, the great power of creation would be theirs. And one day, the most daring of them all voyaged across the vast ocean to take it. He was a demi-god of the wind and sea. He was a warrior. A trickster. A shapeshifter who could change form with the power of his magical fishhook. And his name was Maui.
[Maui takes the Heart of Te Fiti, causing the island to crumble as he runs away]
Gramma Tala: But without her heart, Te Fiti began to crumble, giving birth to a terrible darkness.
[Maui jumps off a cliff and shapeshifts into a hawk, flying back to his boat]
Gramma Tala: Maui tried to escape but was confronted by another who sought the Heart. Te Ka! A demon of earth and fire. Maui was struck from the sky, never to be seen again. And his magical fishhook and the Heart of Te Fiti were lost to the sea. Where, even now, a thousand years later, Te Ka and the demons of the deep still hunt for the Heart. Hiding in a darkness that will continue to spread, chasing away our fish, draining the life from island after island until every one of us is devoured by the bloodthirsty jaws of inescapable death!
[one child screams in fear while another faints as Moana claps]
Gramma Tala: But one day, the Heart will be found by someone who will journey beyond our reef, find Maui, deliver him across the great ocean to restore Te Fiti's Heart and save us all.
Moana: If there's something you want to tell me, just tell me! Is there something you want to tell me?
[Gramma Tala looks back at Moana, smirking]
Gramma Tala: Is there something you want to hear?
Tamatoa: You're a funny looking little thing aren't you.
[Tries to take Moana's necklace]
Moana: [snatches it back] Don't! That's my gramma's!
Tamatoa: [mockingly repeats] "That's my gramma's!" I ate my Gramma! And it took a week, 'cause she was absolutely humongous.
Moana: [addressing the ocean] Um... *what*? I said help me! And wrecking my boat? Not *helping*!
[She kicks at the water, which recedes, causing her to fall]
Moana: Fish pee in you... all day!
Sina: Sometimes who we wish we were, what we wish we could do, is just not meant to be.
Gramma Tala: [to Moana] Whatever just happened... blame it on the pig.
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: [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?
Moana: [singing] I have crossed the horizon to find you. / I know your name. / They have stolen the heart from inside you. / But this does not define you. / This is not who you are. / You know who you are... who you truly are.
Moana: [exhausted and collapsing at the rudder] I am Moana of Motu...
[starts to doze off and the ocean hits her and she wakes with a start]
Moana: Board my boat!
Moana: I tried Gramma... I-I couldn't do it.
Gramma Tala: It's not your fault. I never should have put so much on your shoulders. If you are ready to go home... I will be with you.
[as Moana prepares to row back home, she stops]
Gramma Tala: Why do you hesitate?
Moana: I don't know.
Villager: [to Moana; about HeiHei, who is pecking at a huge rock in front of him. Pua is watching Heihei, looking concerned] I am curious about that chicken eating the rock. He basically lacks an intelligence required for pretty much... everything. So can we just...
Villager: ...Cook him?
Moana: Well, some of our strengths lie beneath the surface, while others...
[Moana sees that Heihei has swallowed the stone, which is causing a bulge in his neck]
Moana: ...far beneath...
Moana: But, I'm pretty sure there's a lot more to HeiHei than meets the eye.
[HeiHei squawks; he regurgitates the rock which plops right infront of him. HeiHei pauses, and then proceeds to pecking the rock, which he was doing earlier. Pua looks away, obviously disturbed]
[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
[Moana has found that her pet rooster, Heihei, has stowed away on her boat. Heihei looks around to see that he surrounded by water, with no land in sight. He screams in fright]
[Moana puts a coconut shell on his head to stop him from screaming, he stops screaming. She lifts the shell again and Heihei continues to scream by the sight of the sea, only for Moana to put the coconut shell back on his head]
Moana: [slowly lifting the shell from Heihei's head] It's okay. You're all right. See? There we go. Nice water. The ocean is a friend of mine.
[Moana puts a hand in the water. Heihei sees this and then jumps headfirst into the water, sinking completely. Alarmed, Moana gets down over the edge of the raft, looking around]
Moana: [concerned] Heihei?
[Heihei floats by, five feet away from the raft, his head under the water's surface with his legs sticking up in the air]
Moana: [to Heihei] Te Ka can't follow us into the water. We make it past the barrier islands... we make it to Te Fiti. None of which you understand... because you are a chicken.
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: 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.
Moana: [Tamatoa is about to eat Maui] Hey!
Moana: [holding up what appears to be the Heart of Te Fiti] I've got something shiny for ya!
Tamatoa: [Tamatoa spits Maui out; awestrucked] The Heart of Te Fiti!
Tamatoa: You cannot run from me!
[Moana takes off running]
Tamatoa: [Following after her; mock surprise] Oh, you *can* run from me! You keep surprising me!
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.
Gramma Tala: When I die, I'm going to come back as one of these.
[Manta Rays are dancing around her as she dances with the water]
Gramma Tala: Or I chose the wrong tattoo!
[a manta ray tattoo is on her back]
Moana: Why are you acting *weird*?
Gramma Tala: I'm the village crazy lady. That's my job.
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!
Moana: [tasting a bit of meat given to her] Mmm! That is good pork!
[Pua, Moana's pet pig, gives her a "sad puppy eyes" look]
Moana: Oh! I didn't mean... no, I wasn't... What? They're calling me, so I gotta... Bye!
[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!
Moana: [Moana has just discovered that she was descended from voyagers; she runs out of the cave, screaming excitedly] We were voyagers! We were voyagers! We were voyagers!
[sits down besides Tala; calmly]
Moana: Why did we stop.
Gramma Tala: *Maui.* When Maui stole from the mother island, darkness fell, Te Ka awoke, Monsters lurked, fishing boats stopped coming back. To protect our people, the ancient chiefs buried our past to be forgotten. Years have past and we have forgotten who we are. And now, the darkness has spread, taking our fish, draining life from island... after island!
[Tala points a place on the island where there is a large patch of dead vegetation; Moana gasps]
Moana: [realizing] *Our* island!
Gramma Tala: [optimistically] But one day, someone will leave our island, journey across the ocean, find Maui...
[Tala opens her abalone locket and placing a jade green stone in Moana's hand; the Heart of Te Fiti]
Gramma Tala: ...And restore the Heart of Te Fiti! I was there that day... the Ocean had chosen you.
[Before their eyes, the ocean becomes animated and stretches over to look at the two women as music plays in the background]
Gramma Tala: [singing] I like to dance with the water. The undertow on the waves. The water is mischievous.
Gramma Tala: Ha! I like how it misbehaves!
Gramma Tala: There is nowhere you could go that I won't be with you.
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?
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: [Gramma Tala has encouraged Moana to sneak out to the ocean on one of the boats that are lined up. Just before Moana can take action, Chief Tui catches Moana peeking at the boats from the bushes with Gramma] D-Dad! I was only *looking* at the boats! I *wasn't* gonna get on them.
