  • [chased by Razoul and his guards] All this for a loaf of bread?
  • [followed by Jasmine when she's going home with Aladdin and Abu] Almost there.
  • Abu, this is no time to panic! [gasps and sees a cliff] Start panicking!
  • [to Genie, regretfully] Genie, I can't keep this up on my own. I.....I can't wish you free.
  • [looks out at the window to see the Sultan's Agrabah palace] Someday, Abu, things are gonna change. We'll be rich, live in a palace, and never have any problems at all.

Princess Jasmine

  • [to Aladdin as Prince Ali] Just go, I mean, jump off the balcony!
  • [to Aladdin] I'm a fast learner.
  • [to Abu, when feigning insanity] Oh, my Sultan! How may I serve you?


  • [on Jafar who's laughing his head off hysterically] Oh, boy. He's cracked. He's goin' nuts! Jafar! [pounds on Jafar's turban] Hello?! JAFAR!!!! Get a grip! [Jafar grabs him toughly around the throat which causes his head's blood circulation.] Good grip.
  • [going as a flamingo, turns around and finds a real flamingo smiling in his face] Ya got a problem.... [hits the flamingo with his right stilt, and the flamingo falls into the water] Pinky?! Jerk. [laughs maniacally, removes his flamingo disguise, sneaks into the palace, and gets the lamp] Boy, Jafar's gonna be happy to see you! [mimics Jafar] Excellent work, Iago! [in his normal voice] Aw, go on! [as Jafar] No, really. I mean, dead seriously. On a scale of 1 to 10, you are an 11. [in his normal voice] Oh, Jafar, you're too kind. [flies away with the lamp] I'm embarrassed. I'm blushing.
  • [to the Sultan while shoves many crackers into his mouth as his serious payback] Puppet ruler want a cracker?


  • [after coming out of his lamp] Oy! [feels a pain in his neck] 10,000 years will give you such a crick in the neck!
  • [as one of the cheerleaders] Jafar, Jafar, he's our man, whether he can't do it.... [screams bloody murder] GREAT!!!!
  • [after transforming Aladdin into a prince] He's got the outfit. He's got the elephant. But we're not through yet! Hang on to your turban, kid! We're gonna make you a star!
  • [to the audience when he pushes up a "The End" scene to a blank white one] Made you look.


  • [eyes the giant tiger head rising from the sand] At last, after all my years of searching, the Cave of Wonders.
  • [after Aladdin has returned with Abu and Carpet] YOU!! How many times do I have to kill you, boy?!
  • I think that it's time to say goodbye to Prince Abubu.


The Cave of Wonders: Who disturbs my slumber?
Gazeem: [last words] It is I, Gazeem, a humble thief.
The Cave of Wonders: Know this. Only one may enter here. One whose worth lies far within. A diamond in the rough.
Jafar: What are you waiting for? Go on!
[Gazeem hesitates, then moves one foot inside the cave. With great apprehension, he plants his foot down. Nothing happens. Relieved, he begins his trek again. Then another roar comes. He turns back, but the lion's mouth slams shut and the dune collapses back to normal. All that are left are Jafar, Iago, and the two separated halves of the medallion]
Jafar: NO!!
The Cave of Wonders: Seek thee out, the diamond in the rough.
[Iago unburied himself from the sand, coughing as he does so]
Iago: I can't believe it! I just don't believe it! We're never gonna get ahold of that stupid lamp! Just forget it! Look at this. Look at this. I'm so ticked off that I'm molting.
Jafar: Patience, Iago, patience. Gazeem was obviously less than worthy.
Iago: Oh, there's a big surprise! That's an incredib... I think I'm gonna have a heart attack and die from that surprise! What are we gonna do? We got a big problem here, a big... Mmph!
[Jafar grabs Iago's beak to shut him up]
Jafar: Yes. Only one may enter. I must find this one, this... diamond in the rough.

[Princess Jasmine stops at Farouk's fruit stand and sees a young boy reaching for fruit; she picks up an apple and hands it to him]
Princess Jasmine: You must be hungry. Here you go. [the boy runs off]
Farouk: You'd better be able to pay for that.
Princess Jasmine: [turns around] Pay?
Farouk: No one steals from my cart.
Princess Jasmine: I'm sorry, sir. I don't have any money.
Farouk: Thief!
Princess Jasmine: Please. If you let me go to the palace, I can get some from the sultan.
Farouk: Do you know what the penalty is for stealing?!
[he grabs her hand and pins it down on the table, then raises his sword]
Princess Jasmine: No! No, please!
[Aladdin stops Farouk]
Aladdin: Thank you, kind sir. I'm so glad you found her. [to Princess Jasmine] I've been looking for you.
Princess Jasmine: [quietly] What are you doing?
Aladdin: [whispers back] Just play along.
Farouk: You know this girl?
Aladdin: Sadly, yes. She is my sister. She's a little crazy.
Farouk: She said she knew the sultan.
Aladdin: She thinks the monkey is the sultan.
[Princess Jasmine, playing along, kneels and bows to Abu]
Princess Jasmine: Oh, wise Sultan, how may I serve you?
Abu: Well,... [babbles royally]
Aladdin: Tragic, isn't it? [leans forward, picking up another apple from the cart and hands it to Farouk as repayment] But no harm done. [walks over to Princess Jasmine] Now, come along, sis. Time to go see the doctor.
Princess Jasmine: [to a camel standing nearby] Oh, hello, doctor. How are you?
Aladdin: No, no, no, not that one. [to Abu, whose pockets are bulging] Come on, Sultan.
[Abu bows to the crowd until nearly everything he picked up falls out]
Farouk: Huh? What is it? [Abu picks up what he can carry, and the trio run off] Come back here, you little thieves!

[Aladdin finds the lamp in the Cave of Wonders]
Aladdin: This is it? This is what we came all the way down here to..?
[he looks down at Abu about to grab a red ruby from a monkey idol]
Aladdin: Abu! NO!
[Abu grabs the ruby]
The Cave of Wonders: INFIDELS!
Abu: Uh-oh!
The Cave of Wonders: You have touched the forbidden treasure!
[Abu tries to put the ruby back in the idol's palm, but the idol starts to melt away]
The Cave of Wonders: Now you will never again see the light of DAY!!

Jafar: [laughs after the cave closes with Aladdin trapped inside] It's mine. [removes his disguise] It's all mine! I...
[he searches his robe pockets for the lamp, but it is empty]
Jafar: Where is it? No! [falls to his knees] NO!!!

Genie: So what'll it be, master?
Aladdin: You’re gonna grant me any three wishes I want?
Genie: Ah, almost. There are a few provisos, a couple of quid pro quos.
Aladdin: Like?
Genie: Ah, rule number one: I can’t kill anybody. [slices his head off with his finger] So don’t ask. Rule number two: I can’t make anyone fall in love with anyone else. [Genie's head turns into a big pair of lips which kiss Aladdin] You little punim, there. [lies flat, then gets up and transforms into a zombie ala Peter Lorre] Rule number three: I can’t bring people back from the dead. It’s not a pretty picture. [grabs Aladdin and shakes him] I DON'T LIKE DOING IT! [poofs back to normal] Other than that, you got it!
Aladdin: Ah, provisos? You mean limitations? On wishes? [to Abu] Some all powerful genie. Can’t even bring people back from the dead. I don’t know, Abu. He probably can’t even get us out of this cave. Looks like we’re gonna have to find a way out of here.
Genie: [stomps his foot in front of them] Excuse me? Are you lookin' at me? Did you rub my lamp? Did you wake me up? Did you bring me here? And all of a sudden, you’re walkin' out on me?! I don't think so! NOT right now! YOU'RE GETTIN' YOUR WISHES, SO SIT DOWN!! (In a deleted scene, he saids The gauntlet has been thrown, the gloves are off!)
[Aladdin and Abu sit on the carpet; Genie joins them]
Genie: In case of emergency, the exits are here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, anywhere! Keep your hands and arms inside the carpet! WEEEEEEEEEEEE'RE... [they pop out of the cave and soar into the distance] ...OUTTA HERE!

Genie: [obviously hurt] Fine. I understand. After all, you've lied to everyone else. Hey, I was just beginning to feel left out. Now, if you'll excuse me, "Master". [vanishes into his lamp]

Aladdin: Jasmine, I'm sorry I lied to you about being a prince.
Princess Jasmine: I know why you did.
Aladdin: Well, I guess this is goodbye. [Genie pokes his head around the corner shocked at what he is hearing]
Princess Jasmine: Oh, that stupid law. This isn't fair. I love you.
Genie: [wipes away a tear] Al, no problem. You still got one wish left. Just say the word and you're a prince again.
Aladdin: But what about your freedom?
Genie: Hey, it's only an eternity of servitude. This is love. [he leans down next to her] Al, you're not gonna find another girl like her in a million years. Believe me, I know. I've looked.
Aladdin: Jasmine, I do love you. But I gotta stop pretending to be something I'm not.
Princess Jasmine: I understand.
[They take one final look into each other's eyes, then Aladdin turns to the Genie]
Aladdin: Genie, I wish for your freedom.
Genie: One prince pedigree coming up. I... What?
Aladdin: [he holds the lamp up to Genie] Genie, you're free.
[A transformation scene ensues, in which the shackles fall off Genie's wrists and the lamp falls uselessly to the ground. Genie picks it up and looks at it]
Genie: [he can't believe it; laughing] I'm free. I'm free. [he hands the lamp to Aladdin] Quick, quick, wish for something outrageous. Say, "I want the Nile." Wish for the Nile. Try that.
Aladdin: Uh, I wish for the Nile.
Genie: No way. [laughs hysterically. He bounces around the balcony like a pinball] Oh, does that feel good! I'm free. I'm free at last. I'm hittin’ the road. I'm off to see the world. I'm...
[He is packing a suitcase, but looks down and sees Aladdin looking very sad]
Aladdin: Genie, I'm... I'm gonna miss you.
Genie: [smiling, with a tear in his eye] Me too, Al. No matter what anybody says, you'll always be a prince to me.
[They hug. The Sultan steps forward]
The Sultan: That's right. You've certainly proven your worth as far as I'm concerned. It's that law that's the problem.
Princess Jasmine: Father?
The Sultan: Well, am I sultan or am I sultan? From this day forth, the princess shall marry whoever she deems worthy.
Princess Jasmine: [she smiles widely and runs into Aladdin's arms] Him. I choose... I choose you, Aladdin.
Aladdin: [laughs] Call me Al.
[They are about to kiss when giant blue hands pull everybody together. Genie is decked out in a Hawaiian shirt with golf clubs and a Goofy hat]
Genie: All of you, come over here. Big group hug. Do you mind if I kiss the monkey? [he kisses Abu] Ooh, hairball. Well, I can't do any more damage around this popsicle stand. [takes off] I'm outta here! Bye-bye, you two crazy lovebirds! Hey, Rugman, Ciao, I'm history. No, I'm mythology. I don't care what I am! I'm free-hee!

About Aladdin

  • I saw something that speculates that the peddler at the beginning of 'Aladdin' is the Genie. That's true!"
  • One of the things [directors] Ron [Clements], John [Musker], and I were talking about was that, originally, when he came in to the first session, he said, “Do you want me to do kind of an ethnic voice for the Genie?” And we said, “No, no, just be yourself.” And we realized later that “being yourself” for Robin Williams is like being 98 different characters at once. [Laughs].
