Genie, you're free!

Aladdin is a 1992 Disney animated film which relates a version of the story of Aladdin and the magic lamp from The Book of One Thousand and One Nights.

Imagine if you had three wishes, three hopes, three dreams, and they all would come true. (Taglines)


The law is wrong. If I do marry, I want it to be for love.
  • [chased by Razoul and his guards] All this for a loaf of bread?
  • Abu, this is no time to panic! [gasps and sees a cliff] Start panicking!
  • Genie, you're free! [using his third wish to free Genie from the lamp]


  • Oh, Father! Rajah was just playing with him. Weren't you, Rajah? You were just playing with that overdressed, self-absorbed Prince Achmed, weren't you?
  • Then maybe I don't wanna be a princess any more!
  • Oh, sure. People who tell you where to go and how to dress?
  • When I am queen, I will have the power to get rid of you!
  • How dare you! All of you! Standing around deciding my future?! I am not a prize to be won!
  • Him! I choose- I choose you, Aladdin.


  • 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!


  • [after coming out of his lamp] 10,000 years will give you such a crick in the neck!
  • Jafar, Jafar, he's our man, if he can't do it: GREAT!!
  • All right, you baaaaad boy, but no more freebies.
  • [after saving Aladdin from drowning] Al, I'm gettin' kinda fond of you, kid. Not that I want to pick out curtains or anything.
  • [last lines] Made you look.


  • [having learned from the Cave of Wonders] Yes. Only one may enter. I must find this one. This Diamond in the Rough.
  • [after Aladdin has returned] YOU! How many times do I have to kill you, boy?!


  • Ahh! Salaam and good evening to you, worthy friend. Please, please, come closer. [camera hits him in the face] Too close! A little too close. [camera backs up] There. Welcome to Agrabah.
  • [holding up an oil lamp] Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts. This is no ordinary lamp! It once changed the course of a young man's life; a young man who, like this lamp, was more than what he seemed: a diamond in the rough. Perhaps you would like to hear the tale? It begins on a dark night, where a dark man waits... with a dark purpose.


[first lines]
Narrator: Ahh! Salaam and good evening to you, worthy friend. Please, please, come closer. [camera hits him in the face] Too close! A little too close. [camera backs up] There. Welcome to Agrabah, city of mystery, of enchantment. And the finest merchandise this side of the river Jordan on sale today! Come on down!

Jafar: Trust me, my pungent friend. You'll get what's coming to you.
Iago: What's coming to you. Awk!

Cave: Who disturbs my slumber?
Gazeem: It is I, Gazeem, a humble thief.
Cave: 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!
[when Gazeem tries to steal the lamp from the Cave of Wonders, the latter swallows him whole]
Jafar: No!
Cave: Seek thee out, the diamond in the rough.
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.

Guard 1: [spots Aladdin] There he is!
Guard 2: You won't get away so easy!
Aladdin: [holds up the bread] You think that was easy?
[He turns to see a group of women laughing at him]
Razoul: [to his guards] You two, over that way! And you, follow me! We'll find him!
[Aladdin walks up to the women, disguised as one of them]
Aladdin: Morning, ladies.
Woman 1: Getting into trouble a little early today, aren't we, Aladdin?
Aladdin: Trouble? No way. You're only in trouble if you get caught.
Razoul: [grabs Aladdin] GOTCHA!
Aladdin: I'm in trouble!
Razoul: And this time.
[Abu screeching]
Aladdin: Perfect timing, Abu!
Abu: Hello.
Aladdin: Come on, let's get outta here!

Sultan: [brandishes the piece of Achmed's clothing] So, this is why Prince Achmed stormed out!
Jasmine: Oh, Father! Rajah was just playing with him. Weren't you, Rajah? You were just playing with that overdressed, self-absorbed Prince Achmed, weren't you? [she and her tiger chuckle and then see the Sultan glaring at them] Ahem...
Sultan: Dearest, you've got to stop rejecting every suitor who comes to call! The law says you -
Jasmine: [choruses with him] Must be married to a prince...
Sultan: ... by your next birthday.
Jasmine: The law is wrong!
Sultan: You've only got 3 more days!
Jasmine: Father! I hate being forced into this. If I do marry...I want it to be for love.
Sultan:'s not only this law...I'm not going to be around forever, and, well, I just want to make sure you're taken care of. Provided for.
Jasmine: Please, try to understand! I've never done a thing on my own. I've never had any real friends. [Rajah looks up, growling] Except you, Rajah. [Rajah lies down again, smiling] I've never even been outside the palace walls.
Sultan: But Jasmine, you're a princess.
Jasmine: Then maybe I don't wanna be a princess any more!
Sultan: Ooooh! [to Rajah] Allah forbid you should have any daughters!
[Rajah grunts confusedly]

Aladdin: [finds the lamp] This is it? This is what we came all the way down here to...?
[he suddenly sees Abu about to snatch the ruby from the monkey idol]
Aladdin: Abu! NO!
[Abu grabs the ruby]
Cave: [echoes through the chamber] INFIDELS!
Abu: Uh-oh!
Cave: You have touched the forbidden treasure!
[Abu sheepishly tries to put the ruby back in the idol's palm, but the idol melts away]
Cave: Now you will never again see the light of DAY!!!

Aladdin: [hanging from the entrance of the Cave of Wonders] Help me out!
Jafar: Throw me the lamp!
Aladdin: I can't hold on! Give me your hand!
Jafar: First give me the lamp!
[Aladdin does so]
Jafar: [laughs triumphantly] Yes! At last!
[he grabs Aladdin's wrist]
Aladdin: What are you doing?
Jafar: Giving you your reward, your eternal reward!
[he pulls out a dagger and is about to stab Aladdin; Abu bites his arm, forcing him to drop the dagger; Jafar then throws Aladdin and Abu back down the Cave, after the entrance to the Cave of Wonders is sealed, Jafar, thinking that he has the lamp, laughs]
Jafar: It's mine. [removes his disguise] It's all mine! [looks into his robe] I-- [takes a closer look] Where is it? [pats down his empty robe] No! [falls to his knees] NO!!!

Aladdin: [after learning Genie's rules] Provisos? You mean, limitations on wishes? Some all-powerful genie. He can't even bring people back from the dead. I don't know, Abu. He probably can't even get us outta this cave. Looks like we're gonna hafta find a way outta here.
[Genie stomps his foot loudly in front of the duo]
Genie: Excuse me?! [scoffs in annoyance] 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!!!
[Aladdin and Abu sit on the carpet; Genie joins them]
Genie: In case of emergency, [points in different directions with many arms] the exits are here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here,... ANYWHERE! [retracts his extra arms] Keep your hands and arms inside the carpet! WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE'RE...!!!
[the carpet takes off and pops out of the cave]
Genie: ...OUTTA HERE!!!

[Genie and Carpet are playing Chess]
Genie: So move!
[Carpet takes his queen and knocks Genie's off the board]
Genie: Hey! That's a good move. [imitates Rodney Dangerfield] I can't believe it! I'm losing to a rug!

Genie: [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!

Aladdin: [to Genie, regretfully] Genie, I can't keep this up on my own. I.....I can't wish you free.
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]

Genie: [comes out of the lamp after Jafar has rubbed it] Y'know, Al, I'm getting really...! [spots Jafar] I don't think you're him. [reads from a script and looks at Jafar through opera glasses] Tonight the part of Al will be played by a tall, dark and sinister ugly man.
[Jafar throws Genie to the ground, and steps on his face]
Jafar: I am your master now!
Genie: I was afraid of that.
Jafar: Genie, grant me my first wish. I wish to rule on high as Sultan!

Jafar: I'm just getting warmed up! [spits fire]
Aladdin: Are you afraid to fight me yourself, you cowardly snake?!
Jafar: [emerges through the flames] A snake, am I? Perhaps you'd like to see how SSSSNAKE-LIKE I CAN BE! [with these words, Jafar transforms into a giant cobra]

Jafar: You little fool. You thought you could defeat the most powerful being on Earth?!
Iago: Squeeze him, Jafar. Squeeze him like a…
Jafar: Without the Genie, boy, you're nothing!
Aladdin: [looks down at Genie] The Genie. The Genie! [to Jafar] The Genie has more power than you'll ever have!
Jafar: What?!
Aladdin: He gave you your power! He can take it away!
Genie: Al, what are you doing? Why are you bringing me into this?
Aladdin: Face it, Jafar! You're still just second-best!
Jafar: [gasps] You're right! His power does exceed my own. [slithers toward Genie] But not for long.
Genie: The boy's crazy. He's a little punch-drunk. One too many hits with a snake.

Jafar: [after becoming a genie] The universe is mine to command! TO CONTROL!!
Aladdin: Not so fast, Jafar! Aren't you forgetting something?!
Jafar: Huh?
Aladdin: You wanted to be a genie? You got it!
Jafar: WHAT?!
Aladdin: [sucks the evil genie into a black lamp] And everything that goes with it!
Jafar: NO! NO!!
Iago: I'm gettin' outta here!
Aladdin: Phenomenal cosmic powers!
Iago: [Jafar grabs him] Come on! You're the genie! I don't wanna be... [gets trapped in the lamp with Jafar]
Aladdin: Itty-bitty living space.
Genie: Al! You little genius, you!

Aladdin: Jasmine, I'm sorry I lied to you about being a prince.
Jasmine: I know why you did.
Aladdin: Well, I guess... this is... goodbye?
Jasmine: Oh, that stupid law. This isn't fair. I love you.
Genie: Al, no problem. You still got one wish left! Just say the word, and you're a prince again.
Aladdin: But, Genie, what about your freedom?
Genie: Hey, it's only an eternity of servitude. [pushes Aladdin and Jasmine closer together] This is love. Al, you're never going to find another girl like her in a million years. Believe me, I know: I've looked.

Genie: I'm free... I'm free. [to Aladdin] Quick, QUICK! Wish for something outrageous, say 'I-I want the Nile'! Wish for the Nile, try that.
Aladdin: Uh... I wish for the Nile.
Genie: NO WAY! [points and laughs] OH, does this feel good! Oh! I'm free! I'm free at last! [starts packing a suitcase] I'm hitting the road! I'm off to see the world! I'm- [Looks at Aladdin who smiles sadly and looks down]

Aladdin: Genie, I'm gonna miss you.
Genie: [tearfully] Me, too, Al. No matter what anybody says... you'll always be a prince to me. [He and Aladdin hug]
Sultan: That's right. You have certainly proven your worth as far as I'm concerned! It's that law that's the problem...
Jasmine: Father...?
Sultan: Well, am I Sultan or am I Sultan? From this day forth, the princess shall marry whoever she deems worthy.
Jasmine: Him! I choose- I choose you, Aladdin.
Aladdin: Heh. Call me "Al."


About Aladdin[edit]

  • 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].
