RAPUNZEL: [deep breath]
Okay.[opens closet, Flynn falls out]
Uh? [examines Flynn]
Hmm.

[Rapunzel pulls chair. Pascal wakes up Flynn.]

FLYNN:
Agh! Huh? Uh? [struggles] Is this hair?

RAPUNZEL:
Struggling… struggling is pointless.

FLYNN:
Huh?

RAPUNZEL:
I know why you’re here, and I’m not afraid of you.

FLYNN:
What?

RAPUNZEL:
Who are you? And how did you find me?

FLYNN:
Aha.

RAPUNZEL:
Who are you, and how did you find me?

FLYNN:
Mm-hm. I know not who you are, nor how I came to find you, but may I just say…
Hi. How ya doin’? The name’s Flynn Rider. How’s your day goin’? Huh?

RAPUNZEL:
Ugh! Who else knows my location, Flynn Rider?

FLYNN:
All right, blondie–

RAPUNZEL:
Rapunzel.

FLYNN:
Gesundheit. Here’s the deal. I was in a situation, gallivanting through the forest. I came across your tower and… ho, oh no… where is my satchel?

RAPUNZEL:
I’ve hidden it, somewhere you’ll never find it.

FLYNN:
It’s in that pot, isn’t it?

[A bang by frying pan.]

FLYNN:
Er, uh. Huh? [realizes Pascal's tongue stuck in his ear] Yike! [shakes off Pascal] Would you stop that?

RAPUNZEL:
Now it’s hidden where you’ll never find it.
So, what do you want with my hair? To cut it?

FLYNN:
What?

RAPUNZEL:
Sell it?

FLYNN:
No! Listen, the only thing I want to do with your hair is to get out of it. Literally.

RAPUNZEL:
Yi. Wait. You don’t want my hair?

FLYNN:
Why on earth would I want your hair? Look, I was being chased, I saw a tower, I climbed it, end of story.

RAPUNZEL:
You’re… telling the truth?

FLYNN:
Yes.

[Pascal distrusts]

RAPUNZEL:
I know, I need someone to take me.

[Pascal motions]

RAPUNZEL:
I think he’s telling the truth, too.

[Pascal motions]

RAPUNZEL:
(He) doesn’t have fangs, but what choice do I have?

[Flynn struggles]

RAPUNZEL:
Huh. Okay, Flynn Rider, I’m prepared to offer you a deal.

FLYNN:
Deal?

RAPUNZEL:
Look this way. [F collapses with chair] Do you know what these are?

FLYNN:
You mean the lantern thing they do for the princess?

RAPUNZEL:
Lanterns. I knew they weren’t stars.
Well, tomorrow evening they will light the night sky with these lanterns.You will act as my guide, take me to these lanterns, and return me home safely. Then, and only then, will I return your satchel to you. That is my deal.

FLYNN:
Yeah. No can do. Unfortunately, the kingdom and I aren’t exactly ’simpatico’ at the moment. So I won’t be taking you anywhere.

RAPUNZEL:
Something brought you here, Flynn Rider. Call it what you will: fate, destiny…

FLYNN:
A horse.

RAPUNZEL:
So I have made the decision to trust you.

FLYNN:
A horrible decision, really.

RAPUNZEL:
But trust me when I tell you this.

[Rapunzel tugs hair, Flynn falls forward]

FLYNN:
Ugh!

RAPUNZEL:
You can tear this tower apart brick by brick, but without my help, you will never find your precious satchel.

FLYNN:
Hmm-mm. Let me just get this straight. I take you to see the lanterns, bring you back home, and you’ll give me back my satchel?

RAPUNZEL:
I promise. And when I promise something, I never ever break that promise. Ever.

FLYNN:
All right, listen, I didn’t want to have to do this, but you leave me no choice. Here comes the ‘smoulder’.

[Rapunzel & Pascal: stern look]

This is kind of an off day for me. This doesn’t normally happen.… Fine, I’ll take you to see the lanterns!

RAPUNZEL:Really? Oops.

FLYNN:
You broke my ‘smoulder’.
