Iago: (While sneaking into the Sultan’s bathtub
and using the Sultan’s voice) Ahhhh… a bath fit for
a sultan. (Back to normal voice) Ohhhh… oils, silky, imported,
expensive oils for that coconut fresh all-over tingly feel. (Pouring
bath oils over himself) Iago, my friend, you were made for the finer
things in life. (Seeing Rasoul enter the bath chambers) AHHH!
Rasoul: (Entering the bath chambers) Fiend! What are you doing
the sultan’s royal bath?
(Cut to later in the day, Aladdin, Jasmine, Sultan, Rasoul, Abu
and Iago are standing in the Throne Room)
Sultan: Well, Iago…
Iago: (whose feathers are still messed up from the bath) I’ve
got embarrassing, flaky skin, ok?
Abu: (laughs hysterically)
Iago: (Makes a vain attempt to fix his feathers)
Aladdin: I think Sultan’s more concerned about
the breaking in part.
Iago: I… uhhh… it’s all his fault. (Pointing
at Aladdin) He said I could use the royal bath!
Aladdin: (Laughs nervously and grabs Iago) Uhhh… one moment
with the bird. (To Iago) You’d do anything to save your tail,
Iago: Hey, if you didn’t live in that moldy, old hovel, none
of this would be happening! In the good, old days, when I used to
live in the palace… I had caviar, manicures, a reclining chair
that vibrates (Imagines he is in a vibrating chair) Ohhhh!
Hakim: (Enters from Throne Room door, carrying a scroll) Your Highness!
Your Highness! A most disturbing message. (begins reading from the
scroll) “Sultan, by now you will have noticed that you are
turning to stone."
Jasmine: Father, no!
Hakim: "You have been cleverly cursed by a turn-a-man-to-stone-spell,
and only I, Abis Mahl, possess the cure."
Rasoul: The fiend!
Hakim: (Continues reading) “Turn Agrabah over to me, Abis
Mahl, Scourge of the Desert, or you will be stone by nightfall!"
Abu: Oh no!
Sultan: Cleverly cursed… but how?
Hakim: (Again continues to read) “PS: In case you are wondering,
it is your bath oils that I cleverly cursed.”
Sultan: (Lets out a sigh of relief) Well, good thing I haven’t
Iago: AHHH! I used the bath oils, it’s me! I’m turning
to stone! (Begins to cry hysterically and falls over)
Aladdin: (Feels Iago’s wing) You don’t feel like you’re
turning to stone.
Iago: (screaming) I am! I am! It’s happening, and it’s
all your fault… you and your hovel!
Aladdin: (Winks at Jasmine) Well, we could use a new statue in
Iago: (Going over to Abu and hugging him) You! You’ll miss
me, won’t you Abu? Old pal?
Abu: (Jokingly) Oh… I don’t know, maybe,
Iago: (Panicking) This is not a joke! I’m cursed, doomed,
end of the line, game over, do not pass go! (Walks angrily away
from Abu and towards where Aladdin, Jasmine, and Sultan are standing)
And, it’s all because I took the bullet for the sultan.
Aladdin: (Reaching down and ruffling Iago’s feathers) Iago,
relax, you might be molting, but you’re not turning to stone!
Abis Mahl must be bluffing.
Iago: Really? Bluffing? (Begins to smile) Bluffing
ohhh… that’s it. (Laughs hysterically) He’s bluffing…
oh, I’m not turning to stone! In fact, I never felt better
in all my life. Look what I can do! (Begins to tap dance…
suddenly, he begins to convulse, resulting with his tail turning
to stone.) NO!!!
Aladdin: (Gasps) Iago!
Iago: (Nearing tears and cradling his tail) Oh, why me? All I ever
wanted was caviar, manicures, a reclining chair that vibrates…
is that so much to ask?
Aladdin: (Rolls his eyes and rubs his lamp) Genie,
Genie: (Popping out of the lamp) Hey, what’s up guys? (Stops
talking and stares awkwardly at Iago) Ohh… Iago, trying a
new look? (Turns into a tiny, stone statue next to Iago) The sculpted
physique… kind of a daring fashion statement. (Genie’s
arms fall off) Hmm, Genie de Milo! (Pops over to Iago and picks
up his tail) Stone, masculine, yet fragile… I wouldn’t
Iago: (Lets his tail drop onto the floor and falls onto his back)
Ohhhh, the humanity!
Genie: (To Aladdin) What’s with him?
Aladdin: Genie, it’s a curse! He’s turning to stone!
Genie: (Goes to Iago) Ahhh! Ohhh! This is serious! I’ve got
just the thing… (Pulls out a book and begins to read from
it) “So, you’re turning to stone… it is well known
that the bite of a Rock Efreet will turn a man to stone. Also birds
and other living creatures.”
Iago: (Again near tears, lying on the floor and covering his head)
I wasn’t bitten by a Rock Efreet!
Genie: (Tapping Iago on the head) It is the Efreet venom which holds
Jasmine: Abis Mahl put Rock Efreet venom in Father’s bath
(Cut to Abis Mahl’s lair)
Abis Mahl: (Talking to the Rock Efreet, which he has in a cage)
Well, you were an expensive purchase weren't you, Mr. Rock Efreet?
(Pokes Rock Efreet with a stick) Hey, I’m talking to you!
(To Haroud) Do you think we paid too much for this guy? I hate paying
Haroud: It is worth any price if we can take Agrabah without confronting
(Efreet pulls the stick out of his hand and spits chewed particles
of it onto Abis Mahl)
Abis Mahl: I do not like this Efreet. In fact, there is only one
person that I do not like more than I do not like this Efreet. (To
Haroud) Do you know who that person is?
Haroud: The Genie, sir?
Abis Mahl: No, you are wrong! For, it is… the genie! He’s
always foiling my plans! In fact, I think it is worth any price
if we can take Agrabah without confronting the genie!
Haroud: (Sarcastically) Oh, you have a very dangerous mind, sir.
I’m glad I’m on your side.
(Cut to Iago sitting on the throne steps)
Iago: (Almost crying) There's no cure for Efreet venom. I’m
done for… poor little me!
Aladdin: You’re not done for. We’ll find some way to
(Genie appears dressed as a wizard. He has a cauldron.)
Genie: (Measuring ingredients into the cauldron) An ounce of bibbidi,
a pinch of bobbidi, and a lot of boo.
Iago: (Climbing onto the side of the cauldron) What’s that
Genie: It’ll cure you! It’s asperglycerin.
Iago: Ok, drip away…
(The drip hits Iago, and the shot cuts to outside the palace where
an explosion is seen taking place. The shot then cuts back to the
Throne Room with Genie and Iago)
Genie: Oops. Nitroglycerin.
Iago: (Falls over) You jerk!
(Shot cuts to a time a few minutes later with Iago hanging tightly
on to the Sultan)
Iago: Sultan, trade the kingdom! Then Abis will give us, no, give
me the antidote! I’ll be flesh and feathers again… see!
Sultan: Iago… I… I… I’m very sorry, but
you see, I just can’t… You know, me people, my city…
ohhh… Jasmine, help me explain.
Jasmine: Iago you know we would… if we… could.
(Iago begins to cry quietly and walks away)
Genie: (Also begins to cry) Awww… Iago, don’t be sad.
(Begins to make riches appear around him) Look! Gold, jewels, caviar,
manicures… a reclining chair that vibrates!
(Iago is sitting in a chair with two beautiful girls giving him
Genie: I’ll make sure you have the best last day on earth
Iago: (Barely manages to squeak his words out) Last day on earth?
Sorry, impending doom takes all the fun out of decadent living.
(Jumps out of the chair and falls hard because of his stone tail)
Ow! (Groans) All I really want now is a longer life. (Begins walking
slowly towards the door)
Aladdin: (Determined) We’ve got until sunset.
I will find a way to save him.
(Iago continues slowly down the stairs)
(Cut to Iago sitting alone outside the palace next to a large pond)
Iago: Uhhh… stone, big deal. I’m better off as a statue,
no more monkey pestering me, no Sultan bugging me about borrowing
his bath oils… (almost crying) no more me. If I ever get out
of this, I’ll kiss that stupid monkey! (Begins to cry hysterically)
I don’t want to be stone! I wanna kiss the monkey! I want
to live! (Imagines himself as a statue in the pond) I… I can’t
let it happen! I won’t let it happen!
(Cut to Abis Mahl sitting in his lair, watching the time until sunset
tick away in an hourglass)
Abis Mahl: (Laughs evilly) Soon Agrabah will be under my control,
Haroud: We’ll be living a life of luxury, yes, I know.
Abis Mahl: Caviar, manicures, ohhhh… big hat! That’s
the best part! Big ol' hat!
Iago: Ahem, hello Abis Mahl, Scourge of the Desert.
Abis Mahl: Ahhh… the bird. I knew you’d be first to
kiss up to Sultan Abis Mahl! (Laughs) What did you bring me?
Iago: Well, uhhh… the Sultan isn’t turning to stone,
Abis Mahl: What?
Haroud: He says, “The Sultan isn’t…”
Abis Mahl: I heard!
Iago: (Yelling) But, I am! I’m turning to stone! May I please
have the antidote, then we can all get on with our lives, especially
Abis Mahl: (Grabbing Iago by the throat) What were
you doing the in the Sultan’s bath oils, huh? Answer me that!
Iago: (In a choked voice) Flaky skin?
Haroud: (Removing Iago from his grip) Sir, all is not lost. We
will simply trade the antidote to Iago.
Abis Mahl: (Yelling) For what? He’s a bird! He has no hat!
Haroud: Who is always foiling your plans? The only
person you do not like more than the Efreet? Blue… hmmm…
magical? (Iago tries to interrupt and Haroud covers his mouth) Don’t
Abis Mahl: (Clearly not knowing the answer) Hmmmm… uhhh…
ohhhh… a blue... magical... uhhh… fish?
Iago: The genie, Einstein! (Knocking on Abis Mahl’s forehead)
The genie! (Gasps when he realizes what he is saying) The genie?
Haroud: Our little feathered friend gets the antidote
in return for bringing us Aladdin’s genie! And, we conquer
Abis Mahl: (Giggles) Genius! I’m glad I thought of it.
Iago: (Trying to sneak away) This isn’t exactly what I had
in mind… I… uhh… (Suddenly he begins to convulse,
resulting in his wing turning to stone. He falls off the chair he
was balanced on)
Haroud: You were saying?
Iago: (Sadly) One genie, coming right up.
(Scene cuts to Aladdin and Genie standing outside a sorceress’
Aladdin: (Pleading) Please, help me! My friend is turning to stone.
Sorceress: (Comes out of doorway) He is a victim of Rock Efreet
Genie: (Whispers to Aladdin) Whoa, she’s good!
Sorceress: And only a Rock Efreet can save him.
Sorceress: The scale from a Rock Efreet, removed and powdered,
will break the spell.
Aladdin: Where can we get an Efreet scale?
Sorceress: (Digging through a treasure chest) There should be a
Rock Efreet nearby. I sold one to a man yesterday. He paid a lot
for it. (Pull out a large horn) Rock Efreet call. One blow summons
a Rock Efreet (Pulls the horn out of Aladdin’s grasp)…
for a price.
(Aladdin digs in a change purse and pulls out a coin)
Sorceress: For a bigger price.
Genie: (Who now has the head and voice of Scrooge
McDuck) Ahhh… a woman after me own heart.
(Aladdin gives her all the money in the purse, and she shoves the
Rock Efreet call into his hands. Aladdin blows it)
(Scene cuts to the Rock Efreet waking up in Abis Mahl’s lair)
(Scene cuts to Abis Mahl impatiently watching the
hour glass on his shelf. Suddenly, he hears a loud shaking noise
and realizes that the Rock Efreet has escaped!)
Abis Mahl: (Yelling) Haroud, come here! And bring the spackle!
(Scene cuts once again to Aladdin and Sorceress)
Sorceress: You shouldn’t have blown that in here! The sound
of the call drives the Efreet mad with fury! It will not relent
until it poisons its summoner with its venom.
(Suddenly, the Rock Efreet bursts through the side of the building)
Aladdin: (Backing away) Summoner?
Genie: That would be… you.
(Rock Efreet charges Aladdin, and he manages to hold it back with
a chair. The Efreet bites the chair and it turns to stone and begins
to crumble. Again he runs toward Aladdin, but Carpet swings down
just in time to pick Aladdin up and carry him safely out the door
with the Efreet right on their heels)
Aladdin: Carpet, let’s move! Genie!
Genie: I’m on it, Al! (He pulls out a gun that shoots a rope
that latches around the Efreet)
(Scene cuts to Iago lugging the lamp out of the palace)
Iago: This walking bit is for the birds… (looks at the camera)
Not me, I mean other birds. (With remorse) Now to find…. Genie.
(Scene cuts top Aladdin and Carpet flying away from the Efreet,
which is hooked at the ankle by Genie’s rope gun. Three Genies
are doing water skiing moves as he is pulled behind by the Efreet)
Genie: Hang on, we're coming! (Is thrown into the side of the palace)
Ow. (Slides down the palace wall.)
(Iago is walking toward the genie with the lamp)
Iago: I know it’s not right to pick on a defenseless
genie, but my life depends on it. (Edges closer to Genie) In the
lamp you go.
(Scene cuts to Abu, Aladdin, and Carpet hovering in mid-air. We
see the Efreet looking for them, and Aladdin motions to Abu to keep
quiet. The Efreet suddenly crashes through the palace wall, causing
the Sultan to run from his throne.)
Sultan: What is going on out there?
(The Efreet catches sight of Aladdin, and the chase
Aladdin: That thing goes through walls like paper! (Thinks) The
Throne Room! Sultan, run for cover!
Sultan: (Runs as Aladdin comes swooping to the palace with the
Efreet right behind him) Aladdin!
(Again the Efreet goes through the wall and into the Throne Room,
but this time he gets lodged in the throne itself)
(Scene cuts to Aladdin holding the Efreet inside
a cage. He is holding a vial.)
Aladdin: All right, we’ve got powdered Efreet scale. Now,
where’s Iago? (Abu hands him a note) What’s this? (Reads
the note) “Dear Aladdin, Don’t bother trying to find
me. By the time you read this, I will be on my way to Abis Mahl’s.”
(Shocked) He’s going to trade Genie for the antidote! He’s
betraying the whole city! We’ve got to find Iago before he
reaches Abis Mahl’s! C'mon! (Aladdin and Abu jump on Carpet)
(Scene cuts to Iago lugging the lamp to Abis Mahl’s)
Iago: (Short of breath) All right, time to hand over Agrabah and
save your stinking feathers.
Aladdin’s voice in his head: You’d do anything to save
your tail, wouldn’t you?
Iago: Al? No, I’m… I’m just imagining things!
Aladdin’s voice in his head: Anything to save your tail!
Iago: Cut that out!
Aladdin’s voice in his head: Anything, wouldn’t you?
Iago: Of course I'd do anything! Anyone would! Wouldn’t they?
Nobody wants to turn to stone, you know? (Thinks and grows sad)
Nobody wants... to betray their friends. (Falls to the ground) I
can’t do it!
(A hand reaches down and picks up the lamp. The hand belongs to
Abis Mahl: Ohhh… sacrificing yourself to save your friends…
how touching! Did I say touching? I meant STUPID! (A door opens
revealing Aladdin, Abu, and Carpet trapped in a cage hanging from
the ceiling. Iago gasps)
Aladdin: (Yelling) I never thought you’d sink so low…
Iago: (Pleading) Al, I’m not! I didn’t betray you;
I only almost did!
Aladdin: Ha! Another alibi!
(Iago’s eyebrows promptly turns to stone)
Iago: (Grabbing onto Abis Mahl) The antidote; give me the antidote!
Abis Mahl: Tsk tsk tsk… I’m sorry, you see, our Efreet’s
escaped. No Efreet, no antidote.
Haroud: Thank you bringing us the genie though.
Iago: You… you… AHHH! (Iago’s beak turns to stone)
Aladdin: Iago, quick, I’ve got the antidote; take it! (He
throws the antidote out of the cage and to Iago. Iago tries to catch
it, but just as he does, his entire body except for one foot turns
to stone) Iago!
Abis Mahl: (Picks Iago up and places him on the shelf next to the
lamp) The perfect souvenir of my greatest triumph!
Aladdin: (Sadly) He’s gone… stone.
Abis Mahl: (With a flourish) And, now, with your Genie out of the
way, taking Agrabah will be easy as… as… uhhh…
round with slices there… very easy!
(Iago begins to hop toward the lamp, and Abu quietly cheers)
Aladdin: (As a distraction) Ok, fine, go ahead and laugh you big,
dumb hyena because once I get my hands on you…
Abis Mahl: (Mocking) But, you can’t! You’re in a cage,
and you don’t have the genie!
(Just then, Iago knocks the lamp off the table, and the Genie springs
Genie: (Also mocking) Oh, yes he does! (Picks up Abis Mahl and
flies him up next to Aladdin’s cage) For the record, Al, the
bird didn’t betray you; he only almost did.
Aladdin: All right Iago!
Haroud: (To Genie) Not so fast! Drop him, or I smash the bird!
Genie: Oh, all right. (Drops Abis Mahl hard onto the floor below)
Abis Mahl: (A little tipsy from the fall) Excellent idea…
drop him, or I smash the bird… (Grabs Iago from Haroud)
Genie: Not so fast! One false move, and I blow the Horn of Unpleasantness!
(Pulls out the Rock Efreet call) The undead become mine to command,
and you'll be torn limb from limb by their bony fingers! Impressive,
Abis Mahl: Wow, where’d you get that? Let me see!
Genie: (Obviously lying) I picked it up at the Unpleasant Boutique…
quite a bargain.
Haroud: Sir, don’t! It’s a trick! (Genie zaps his mouth
so he can no longer talk)
Genie: Here… (Gives the horn to Abis Mahl and snatches Iago
away) Leggo my Iago!
Abis Mahl: Ohhh… Horn of Unpleasantness…
I like the horn!
Genie: (To Iago) How are you holding up, buddy? (Iago can’t
answer. Genie then zaps Aladdin’s cage door open.)
Abis Mahl: (To himself) Abis Mahl, Master of the Undead! I like
the sound of that. (Gives Haroud, who is trying to speak, a shove)
Oh, shut up! (Blows the Rock Efreet call)
Genie: (Tried to pry the antidote from Iago’s stone grasp)
You’ve got a grip on this!
(The Rock Efreet suddenly bursts through the wall of the lair. Iago
goes flying through the air and lands in Haroud’s hands. His
mouth is not able to work again. Aladdin and Abu fly on Carpet down
to him to get Iago back. Abis Mahl is being chased by the Rock Efreet)
Abis Mahl: No! Get away! (Abis Mahl is bitten by the Rock Efreet)
Ow! (His nose suddenly turns to stone) My nose… I’m
petrified… Haroud, the antidote!
(Aladdin and Haroud are fighting over Iago)
Aladdin: Give him to me!
Haroud: Ah, ah, ah...
(Abis Mahl runs up behind them, causing Haroud to lose his grip
on Iago, who goes flying through the air.)
Abis Mahl: Don't smash that bird!
(Iago is caught by Carpet just before he hits the ground. Genie
transforms into a baseball umpire.)
Abis Mahl: (Running after Carpet) Give me the bottle! I’m
turning to stone! (Abu sticks out his tongue at him. Abis Mahl catches
Carpet, and Iago goes flying through the air to be caught by Genie)
Genie: (ducking out of Haroud's way) Think fast! (Abis Mahl then
runs into him)
Abis Mahl: Give me that! (Again Iago flies through the air, this
time to be caught by Aladdin.)
Aladdin: (Holding Iago carefully) Iago, you were going to sacrifice
yourself for Agrabah. I’m sorry I doubted you.
(The sun is almost set as Aladdin pulls the vial from Iago’s
grasp and pours it onto him. In a moment, Iago is back to his normal
self. He and Abu hug.)
Iago: Thanks; get off.
(Abis Mahl picks up the vial. Nothing is left)
Iago: (To Abu) Don’t ask me to explain this. (He kisses Abu
on the forehead.)
Aladdin: All right! Iago’s back!
Genie: Whoa! And acting strange!
(Abis Mahl is still looking at the empty vial)
Abis Mahl: No! (He sees the Efreet and runs after it) Your scales!
Give me your scales!
(Everyone breaks into laughter)
Abis Mahl: (Still running) Give me your scales!
