[Man]

Petey.



 

                   

[Man #2]

Where'd he go?



 

                   

[Man]

He must have went that-a-way.



 

                   

- [Man] Oh, Petey...

- [Owl Hooting]



 

                   

I'll wring his neck!



 

                   

[Man #2]

Petey!



 

                   

- Petey.

- [Hooting Continues]



 

                   

- [Whispering] Elliott, put me down.

- [Men Chattering, Indistinct]



 

                   

- [Man] Look around.

- [Woman] Spread out!



  

                   

They're getting closer.

We'd better hide.



  

                   

- [Knocking]

- Stop swingin' your tail.

You almost knocked me down.



  

                   

Here they come.



  

                   

- Squish down!

- [Grass Rustling]



  

                   

Petey.



  

                   

- [Whispering] No, don't!

- [Rustling]



  

                   

- [Thudding]

- [Screaming]



  

                   

Somethin' hit me!



  

                   

[Laughing Continues]



  

                   

- What somethin'?

- If I knowed what somethin',



  

                   

I wouldn't call it "somethin',"

I'd call it by its name.



  

                   

I told you not

to swing your tail.



  

                   

No, no, don't!



  

                   

- [Thudding]

[Laughing]



  

                   

Dumb polecats!



  

                   

Fightin' it out while that little snake

of a kid gets further away!



  

                   

- [Screaming]

- Now why are y'all playing in the mud...

He's gotta be around

here somewhere. Find him!



  

                   

Aw, Ma!

Why don't we...



  

                   

just go on back home

and do some eatin'?



  

                   

I'll tell ya... 'cause you

ain't gonna do no eatin'...



  

                   

until you find

that little brat!



  

                   

- [Rustling, Smacking]

- [Screaming] Who done that?



  

                   

[Laughing]



  

                   

Hey, Ma, why don't we just

get ourselves another orphan, huh?



  

                   

Because I done paid

our last $   for Pete,



  

                   

plus    cents legal fees.



  

                   

And we ain't got another

$   plus legal, that's why!



  

                   

Do ya understand? Well, here's

somethin' you will understand.



  

                   

You're gonna have to start workin'

the farm with your own two hands...



  

                   

less'n you spot

that little twerp.



  

                   

- [Muttering]

- And get me out of

this here mud hole, Merle.



  

                   

Come on. I'm stuck.

Don't just sit around in it.



  

                   

Come on.

Get me out of here.



  

                   

[Muttering]



  

                   

[Together]

Petey! Petey!



  

                   

[Ma]

Petey! Petey, Petey, Petey!



  

                   

We better stay here.

I'm tired, aren't you?



  

                   

[Speaking Gibberish]



  

                   

- Good night, Elliott.

- [Gibberish]



  

                   

[Munching,

Gulping]



  

                   

[Swallowing]



  

                   

[Gulping, Swallowing

Continue]



  

                   

Hi, Elliott.



  

                   

Oh, boy.

Those look good.



  

                   

[Humming]



  

                   

[Clicking Tongue]



  

                   

I'm starved.



  

                   

You sure changed my life.



  

                   

- I didn't think I'd ever

be happy until I met you.

- Ooh. [Clicks Tongue]



  

                   

Mm.



  

                   

Whoops. One left.

You can have it.



  

                   

- Thanks!

- [Gibberish]



  

                   

Mm. You're

a good cook, Elliott.



  

                   

- [Gibberish]

- [Laughing]



  

                   

I look in your eyes

and you whisper sweetly



  

                   

[Dragon "Singing"]



  

                   

We don't match in size

but we fit so neatly



  

                   

[Dragon "Scatting"]



  

                   

It's nice waking up

when you're close beside me



  

                   

Humming in my ear



  

                   

- [Humming]

- You're joking!



  

                   

- I can't believe it. You do?

- [Humming]



  

                   

- [Humming]

- I love you too



  

                   

[Pete] Remember the night

when you first confided



  

                   

[Elliott Humming]



  

                   

And things went so right

that we both decided



  

                   

[Elliott Humming]



  

                   

Now we're together

and life is perfect



  

                   

Don't ever disappear



  

                   

- [Humming]

- Oh, really?



  

                   

- [Humming]

- Oh, you're just saying that.



  

                   

- [Humming]

- Is it true?



  

                   

- [Humming]

- I love you too



  

                   

We're walking down

a road of our own



  

                   

Where rain can never fall

[Giggling]



  

                   

I'm glad I don't

have to be alone



  

                   

[Humming, Snorting]



  

                   

You know what to say

when I want direction



  

                   

[Elliott Humming]



  

                   

You don't turn away

when I need protection



  

                   

[Roaring]



  

                   

[Sneezing]



  

                   

Your voice is the sound

of an angel singing



  

                   

Music I wait to hear



  

                   

- [Humming, Crooning]

- Say it again!



   

                   

- [Humming, Crooning]

- And again!



   

                   

- [Crooning Continues]

- Everything seems so new!



   

                   

[Crooning]



   

                   

- I love you too

- [Crooning]



   

                   

- I love you too

- [Crooning]



   

                   

I love you too



   

                   

[Crooning]



   

                   

[Bass Crooning]



   

                   

- I love you too

- [Crooning]



   

                   

- [Chuckling]

- "Paz-a-muh-quoddy."



   

                   

Passamaquoddy.

Sounds like a nice place.



   

                   

[Mumbling Gibberish]



   

                   

Now, Elliott, we want the people

of Passamaquoddy to like us.



   

                   

- Don't we?

- [Gibberish]



   

                   

I mean, you're kind of big,

and we don't want to scare anyone.



   

                   

- Do we?

- [Growling, Clicking Tongue]



   

                   

So you better not

show yourself, understand?



   

                   

[Gasps, Sighs]



   

                   

I know how ya feel, but you'll

have to make yourself invisible.



   

                   

[Humming]



   

                   

Nope.



   

                   

- [Panting]

- Uh-uh.



   

                   

- Nope. [Giggling]

- [Gibberish]



   

                   

- Nope.

- [Moaning]



   

                   

- [Panting]

- I'm sorry, but

the whole thing has to go.



   

                   

Behave yourself, Elliott.



   

                   

[Elliott Muttering]



   

                   

[Muttering Continues]



   

                   

[Meowing]



   

                   

[Sighs]



   

                   

- Hi!

- [Clattering]



   

                   

- [Whinnying]

- [Shouting]



   

                   

I told ya

not to fool around.



   

                   

Get on the sidewalk

and stay next to me.



   

                   

[Banging]



   

                   

[Squishing]



   

                   

Look out, Elliott!



   

                   

- Oops. Clumsy, clumsy, clumsy.

- [All Laughing]



   

                   

I'm sorry, real sorry.



   

                   

I was telling my dragon

not to bump his head on the sign.



   

                   

All right, smarties.

Into your classroom.



   

                   

March, march, march

march, march!



   

                   

[Teacher]

March! March!



   

                   

March! March!



   

                   

How dare you?



   

                   

I mean, how dare you lie and try

to embarrass me in front of my students.



   

                   

- I wasn't lying.

- That's a lie on top of a lie.



   

                   

Ugh! You're not

one of my pupils.



   

                   

What school are you

playing hooky from?



   

                   

- I-I don't go to school.

- Ah! I knew it.



   

                   

That's just

what this town needs.



   

                   

- [Elliott Giggling]

- [Teacher] Another ignoramus.



   

                   

- No, Elliott.

- [Ripping]



   

                   

[All Laughing]



   

                   

You disgusting

little street urchin!



   

                   

You could be locked up for this.

Where's the sheriff?



   

                   

Gentlemen,

I propose to say...



   

                   

Passamaquoddy's

a beautiful community...



   

                   

where the sun always rises

and the sun always sets.



   

                   

- That's very deep.

- Elliott...



   

                   

It's a place of serenity

and security,



   

                   

where the unexpected

never happens.



   

                   

- Ow!

- [Elliott Grumbles, Growls]



   

                   

- It's okay, Elliott.

- [Astonished Mumbling]



   

                   

It seems to say,

"Welcome!"



   

                   

You-You absolute oaf.



   

                   

You-You idiot!



   

                   

- No, come, come.

- Look, it was that kid that pushed me.



   

                   

He pulled off

Miss Taylor's petticoat.



   

                   

- He walked through my cement

with his big feet.

- He scared my horse, Victoria.



   

                   

Let's get out

of here, Elliott.



   

                   

- We-Well, where is this person?

- Th-There he goes!



   

                   

- Well, detain him. Detain him.

- [Crowd Shouting]



   

                   

[Chuckling]



   

                   

- Elliott...

- Uh-oh.



   

                   

- You spoiled everything.

- [Gibberish]



   

                   

Darn you, Elliott.



   

                   

I told you to behave.



   

                   

[Sorrowful Gibberish]



   

                   

[Sighs]



   

                   

Scallops.

And some oysters.



   

                   

And...



   

                   

Oh, hello there,

little boy.



   

                   

- Hi.

- [Sniffing]



   

                   

- Hi.

- [Puzzled Gibberish]



   

                   

- Hey! Hey, you look terrible.

- Whoopee!



   

                   

Hey, your friend's...

turned green.



   

                   

- [Gibberish]

- If I didn't know any better,



   

                   

I'd say he was a dragon.



   

                   

- A drag-drag...

- [Growls]



   

                   

Dragon!



   

                   

- Elliott, didn't I tell you that...

- [Frantic Gibberish]



   

                   

- [Loud Chattering]

- [Screaming, Indistinct]



   

                   

[Gibberish]



   

                   

Oh! Gentlemen...



   

                   

A dragon, a dragon

I swear I saw a dragon



   

                   

A green and seething

fire-breathing monster is in sight



   

                   

With eyes of red a lion's head

and wings as dark as night



   

                   

Oh, he has a jaw of gleaming teeth

He's    feet in height



   

                   

It's true, it's true

Oh, what are we to do



   

                   

It's true, it's true

He'll break us all in two



   

                   

Oh, he's comin' in

His great big fin

is right against the door



   

                   

So board up all the windows



   

                   

And get down on the floor



   

                   

Has anybody seen my dad?



   

                   

Nora, please,

my child, come in.



   

                   

- Get off that street.

- What's the matter?



   

                   

- Worst thing I ever saw

in my life out on the street.

- What was it?



   

                   

- I don't want to tell you for

fear it'll scare you to death!

- Scare me.



   

                   

A dragon, a dragon

I swear I saw a dragon



   

                   

His tail lashing, he'll be

smashing every shop in town



   

                   

With scaly feet he'll crack the street

and tear the steeple down



   

                   

It's not some loony dream

I heard a scream from Sheriff Brown



   

                   

It's true, it's true

Oh, what are we to do



   

                   

- It's true, it's true

- Old Lampie's in a stew



   

                   

A dragon, a dragon

I swear there was a dragon



   

                   

You're off your hinges

All those binges put you in a haze



   

                   

You crazy fools

It's all your doggone fault

he's in a daze



   

                   

Let go of me, let go of me

and mend your wicked ways



   

                   

- [Braying]

- Aah!



   

                   

What makes you think there

ever was, there never was



   

                   

There never, never, ever was

a dragon, dragon, dragon



   

                   

Dragon, dragon

dragon, dragon, dragon



   

                   

[Grumbling,

Indistinct]



   

                   

- Now, why don't you just calm down?

- I seen his face.



   

                   

If you wanna

call it a face.



   

                   

It was this close to me.



   

                   

Why don't you

lie down, Dad? Come on.



   

                   

You know what else?

It started to smile at me.



   

                   

- Well, did you smile back?

- I didn't have time to smile.

I was too busy running.



   

                   

And you know...

And you know what else?



   

                   

There was this boy with it.



   

                   

And he wasn't afraid.



   

                   

- This boy...

- Lie down.



   

                   

[Clicking, Mumbling]



   

                   

[Gibberish]



   

                   

[Gibberish]



   

                   

[Humming]



   

                   

We're in a lot of trouble,

and it's all your fault.



   

                   

[Sighing]



   

                   

[Inhaling]



   

                   

[Exhaling]



   

                   

[Inhaling, Exhaling]



   

                   

I don't wanna play.



   

                   

You did everything wrong

is Passamaquoddy.



   

                   

Now everybody hates us.



   

                   

I don't know whether

you're good for me...



   

                   

or bad.



   

                   

[Sniffles]



   

                   

I'm sorry, Elliott.

I didn't really mean that.



   

                   

It's just

I don't know what to do,



   

                   

and I'm scared.



   

                   

[Sniffles]



   

                   

[Groans]



   

                   

Hello in there!



   

                   

[Whispering]

Get back!



   

                   

[Grumbling, Grunting]



   

                   

Hi.



   

                   

- What are you doing here?

- Oh, just playing tic-tac-toe.



   

                   

[Chuckling] Well, this isn't exactly

the best place for tic-tac-toe.



   

                   

The tide's coming in.

High water reaches this cave sometimes.



   

                   

You better

head for home.



   

                   

You're not from

Passamaquoddy, are you?



   

                   

Nope.

Just sort of... traveling.



   

                   

Where are your parents?



   

                   

Where are you staying?



   

                   

- What's your name?

- Pete.



   

                   

I'm Nora, and I have to get back

on watch, up in the lighthouse.



   

                   

There's chowder on the stove,

if you'd like some.



   

                   

Wh-What's the matter?

It's a hand, not a shark.



   

                   

You can finish that chowder...



   

                   

if you'd like.



   

                   

[Exhales, Sniffles]



   

                   

Oh, I forgot something.

Be right back.



   

                   

I forgive you, Elliott.



   

                   

- [Giggles]

- [Sighs, Chuckles]



   

                   

Stay here till I see what

it's like up in the lighthouse.



   

                   

Woo-woo-woo-woo!



   

                   

The Gogans own me,

I guess.



   

                   

They said it was against the law

for me to ever leave them.



   

                   

Where did you get

that bruise?



   

                   

Mr. Gogan. I was milking the cow,

and I missed the bucket.



   

                   

- Had he done that before?

- All the time.



   

                   

The first time I ran away,

the orphan home sent me back.



   

                   

This time,

I'll just keep running.



   

                   

Well, you'll be safe here.



   

                   

Nora, no one's ever been this nice

to me. I'll always remember it.



   

                   

Pete, why don't you

sleep here tonight?



   

                   

We'll figure out

what to do tomorrow.



   

                   

Okay?



   

                   

Wonderful.

I've got work to do. Come on.



   

                   

Are you anybody's mother?



   

                   

I'm not even anybody's wife.



   

                   

But you're gonna get

married now, aren't you?



   

                   

[Scoffs] I'm already married

to this lighthouse.



   

                   

- Who's that?

- Paul.



   

                   

- Is he part of your family?

- He almost was.



   

                   

- How can someone almost

be part of a family?

- We were going to be married.



   

                   

How come you weren't?



   

                   

Well, as far as we know,

his ship was headed for a storm.



   

                   

They were never heard from again.

That was a year ago.



   

                   

He'll come back.



   

                   

I tell myself

the same thing every day,



   

                   

standing up there

watching for ships on the horizon.



   

                   

[Sighs] Time I should be thinking of

other things, so they tell me.



   

                   

I'll have to ask

Elliott about Paul.



   

                   

He has a way

of knowing things.



   

                   

Who's Elliott?



   

                   

- My dragon.

- Dragon?



   

                   

[Gasps]

So you're the boy with the dragon.



   

                   

- Yup.

- Where is he?



   

                   

- Down in the cave.

- That's interesting.



   

                   

I've never known anyone with a dragon.

What does he look like?



   

                   

Just a plain,

ordinary dragon.



   

                   

How plain?

How ordinary?



   

                   

He has the head of a camel



   

                   

The neck

of a crocodile



   

                   

It sounds rather strange.



   

                   

He's both

a fish and a mammal



   

                   

And I hope

he'll never change



   

                   

'Cause it's not easy

to find someone who cares



   

                   

It's not easy

to find magic in pairs



   

                   

I'm glad I found him

I love him



   

                   

I won't let him

get away



   

                   

'Cause it's not easy



   

                   

You say

the head of a camel



   

                   

- The neck of a crocodile

- And the ears of a cow!



   

                   

It's clear that friends

can be different



   

                   

Yes, I understand you now



   

                   

[Together] It's not easy

to find someone who cares



   

                   

It's not easy

to find magic in pairs



   

                   

Now that you have him

Hold him



   

                   

Treasure him

from day to day



   

                   

It's so easy



   

                   

Life is lollipops

and raindrops



   

                   

With the one

you love



   

                   

Someone you can

always be with



   

                   

Argue and agree with



   

                   

Climb the highest tree with



   

                   

[Together]

It's not easy



   

                   

To share somebody's dream



   

                   

It gets easy

when you work as a team



   

                   

You've got to tend it

Fan it



   

                   

That's what

I plan to do



   

                   

Oh, I had one friend

by my side



   

                   

Now I have two



   

                   

Him and you



   

                   

Him and me



   

                   

[Together]

And it's so easy



   

                   

[Humming]



   

                   

- Good morning, sir.

- Good morning, son.



   

                   

- Nice to see you again.

- Ah. Thank you.



   

                   

Aah!



   

                   

- It's you!

- What's the matter?



   

                   

It's you.

The boy with the dragon.



   

                   

Yes, sir.



   

                   

[Screaming]



   

                   

Dad! Dad, what is it?



   

                   

- The boy with the dragon.

- I know, I know. Now, just take it easy.



   

                   

You saw it.

You saw it?



   

                   

I didn't actually see it,

but I know what it looks like.



   

                   

- But wha...

- We'll talk about it later.



   

                   

O-One thing I must know:

It isn't in the lighthouse, is it?



   

                   

- No, Elliott's down in the cave.

- Oh, Ellio...



   

                   

Elliott? Lt... It even has a name.



   

                   

There's nothing

to get upset about.



   

                   

You're right. Right, there's

nothing to get upset about.



   

                   

Nothing. No, why should I get upset?

I should be happy.



   

                   

L... I should be happy! I'll go down

to the saloon and I'll tell the boys.



   

                   

I'll say, "Boys, here it is."

And then hear the apologies. [Laughs]



   

                   

Elliott'll be happy

to do it for you, sir.



   

                   

Good boy. Good lad.



   

                   

Just you and me and Elliott.

We'll go into the saloon.



   

                   

Oh. Elliott...



   

                   

He won't... won't start

to scratch or...



   

                   

or fight, or set anything

on fire, will he?



   

                   

- Well, he's sort of...

- Sort of what?



   

                   

- Unpredictable.

- Now, don't do anything with Elliott.



   

                   

Wh-Why don't you

leave him where he is?



   

                   

- It's too dangerous

to take him into town.

- It's dangerous.



   

                   

Now, I don't want either one of you

to say a word about Elliott...



   

                   

- to anyone, do you understand,

- No. No. Yes!



   

                   

Until we've

talked this over.



   

                   

Now, let's all have breakfast. The lamp

has to be polished, the lens cleaned,



   

                   

and I want to take Pete

to buy new clothes.



   

                   

Yes, well, clean Elliott

and eat the lamp.



   

                   

I mean, we'll...

clea-clean the lamp.



   

                   

[Muttering] Elliott!

The name's Elliott. Did you hear that?



   

                   

Doc Terminus is comin'!



   

                   

Are they still after us?



   

                   

We lost 'em.



   

                   

Good.



   

                   

- Passamaquoddy ahead, ahoy!

- What?



   

                   

Pass-a-ma-quoddy ahead, ahoy!



   

                   

- Oh, no.

- Oh, yes.



   

                   

[Dog Barking]



   

                   

- [Screams] Slow down!

- My fence!



   

                   

Throw out the anchor!



   

                   

Since we all concur, gentlemen,

I suggest that we adjourn.



   

                   

[Screams]



   

                   

[Townspeople Screaming]



   

                   

- Watch Bones.

- Get him off of me! Get him off!



   

                   

I think they remember us.



   

                   

Uh-oh. I think

I remember them.



   

                   

- Just act normal.

- I am acting normal. I'm ready to run.



   

                   

- Quick, what's the name

of this town again?

- Passamaquoddy.



   

                   

- "Quassama" what?

- Passamaquoddy!



   

                   

Got it. How wonderful to see

your smiling faces again.



   

                   

All of you.



   

                   

I-I've never known

such warmth,



   

                   

such welcome,



   

                   

such loving hospitality.



   

                   

Get out, ya quack!



   

                   

And don't bring those

phony remedies here again.



   

                   

Go on back where

you belong: Jail.



   

                   

- [Booing]

- Thank you, thank you,

thank you, thank you.



   

                   

I sense enthusiasm,



   

                   

I sense loving response,



   

                   

and that's why I feel

that this is my home...



   

                   

away from home.



   

                   

I've been bringing cures

from Pilgrim Heights to Provincetown



   

                   

Treated rabid fever

down on Queen Anne Road



   

                   

Gout or gastritis

Mumps or bronchitis



   

                   

Bites and burns and blue abrasions

Got a pill for all occasions



   

                   

Little Sipowissot

was so nice to visit



   

                   

And Scraggy Neck

is lovely to recall



   

                   

I took your drug for losing weight

and now I'm a blob



   

                   

But now there's so much

more of you to love



   

                   

I wiped out impetigo

on the banks of Buttermilk



   

                   

Flu is under firm control

in Powder Hole



   

                   

Terminus potions

tablets and lotions



   

                   

Major news in modern science

Step up now and join my clients



   

                   

Spent a day in Buzzard's Bay

They couldn't keep me there



   

                   

Even turned away

from Kingdom Hall



   

                   

They probably

threw you out



   

                   

[Laughing]

They probably threw...



   

                   

My hair was gray and thanks to you

it turned into pink



   

                   

But that color.

It's so becoming.



   

                   

- Aah!

- We're gonna wash your phony

tonics right down the sink



   

                   

Wait. Listen.



   

                   

My specialties are

audiology, mycology,



   

                   

serology, teratology,

embryology, psychology, zoology...



   

                   

and any other "ology"

you can think of!



   

                   

My friends, you're not

giving me a chance!



   

                   

[Sobs] I brought all these

medicines back from Paris.



   

                   

- France.

- [Crowd] Ohh!



   

                   

Honi soit qui mal y pense:

Shamed be he who thinks evil of it.



   

                   

And that's what the medical

business is all about, folks:

People helping people.



   

                   

You should all have help.



   

                   

Gadzooks!

What have we here?



   

                   

Oh, Doctor, Doctor, Doctor.

[Panting]



   

                   

All I'm askin' for

is a miracle.



   

                   

All he wants

is a miracle, folks.



   

                   

How can I deny him? If he's willing

to pay for it, he's gonna get it.



   

                   

- Any price.

- One dollar, sir.



   

                   

[Drumroll]



   

                   

[Drumroll Ends]



   

                   

- I trust him.

- I believe in the Doc.



   

                   

I'd put my life

in his hands.



   

                   

My friends you've seen a miracle

and you'll see many more



   

                   

People will come pourin' in

from land and sea



   

                   

We'll have centers for testing

Let's start investing



   

                   

- Keep those dimes

and dollars mounting

- I'll collect



   

                   

I'll do the counting

Everyone who lives here

will be strong and healthy



   

                   

You'll be getting richer

by the day



   

                   

- Hurray!

- Hear them acclaim us

This town will be famous



   

                   

The whole wide world

will look at us and say



   

                   

It's

[Crowd]

Passamaquoddy



   

                   

I know.



   

                   

Pete, if you bring up the oil can,

we'll be ready for the night.



   

                   

Sure. Before that, I'd like

to show Elliott my new suit.



   

                   

No! No, no.

You can't bring Elliott up here.



   

                   

Government regulation    

states that...



   

                   

no dragons

shall be allowed...



   

                   

on the premises of

the United States' lighthouses.



   

                   

Now, go on down and get

the oil so I can mark it up

in the log that you did that.



   

                   

Okay. Nora, first can

I bring Paul's picture down to Elliott?



   

                   

Then he can start

looking for Paul.



   

                   

All right.



   

                   

[Door Opens,

Closes]



   

                   

- Thanks, Dad.

- For what?



   

                   

- For making believe about

the dragon and going along with it.

- Making...



   

                   

It means a lot to Pete.

Sort of a family he made up.



   

                   

I'm not making believe.

I actually saw it.



   

                   

And I haven't been

the same since!



   

                   

Go to the cave; you'd see

it too, and your eyes would...



   

                   

- [Popping] pop right out!

- [Scoffs]



   

                   

I was there.

I saw nothing!



   

                   

Dad, be realistic.



   

                   

Oh, you wanna be realistic.

Let's talk about how realistic you are.



   

                   

Here you are, waiting for

someone to come back that just

ain't gonna come back, Nora.



   

                   

And if waitin' for over

a year hasn't told ya nothin',



   

                   

then you're not the one to talk

about being realistic, are you?



   

                   

Honey, I'm sorry.



   

                   

I didn't mean that.



   

                   

I'm going down

to the hardware store.



   

                   

[Humming, Panting]



   

                   

Hi, Elliott!

How do you like my new suit?



   

                   

Wow!

[Panting]



   

                   

[Gibberish]



   

                   

And new shoes too.



   

                   

Look at the way they shine!



   

                   

[Laughing]



   

                   

Nora's so nice to me,

I want us to do something for her.



   

                   

I want you to concentrate

on finding Paul for Nora.



   

                   

This is what he looks like.



   

                   

[Gibberish]



   

                   

Remember his face.

Try real hard.



   

                   

Hmm.



   

                   

[Gibberish]



   

                   

Better go now.



   

                   

- [Kissing]

- Aww.



   

                   

- See ya tomorrow.

- [Whistling]



   

                   

[Giggling]



   

                   

I've had nothing,

nothing but bad luck in this burg.



   

                   

Hey! Ooh...



   

                   

- I'm sorry, Doc.

- You see what I mean, hmm?



   

                   

Doc, I'm sorry.

I didn't mean it, Hoagy.



   

                   

- I di... Can I buy everybody a round?

- Yeah.



   

                   

Huh? Well... Hey, 'cause,

Doc, I gotta talk to you. Okay?



   

                   

- Sit down.

- May I? Thank you.



   

                   

Hey, you're a ma...

You're a man of science, ain't you?



   

                   

A man of science, yes.

Yes, I am.



   

                   

With degrees from

the Royal Medical College, London.



   

                   

- Huh?

- The Gleinen Einen Peitzen in Vienna.



   

                   

- Oh!

- And the Moulin Rouge in Paris.



   

                   

Oh. You know

anything about dragons?



   

                   

Of course I do. I see them in all

the big cities going down the streets,



   

                   

with that funny little walk, wearing

bright colors, fluttering around...



   

                   

No, no, no. I'm talkin'

about a real dragon.



   

                   

Real dragon. With fire...

fire coming out of his mouth.



   

                   

And he's got real wings.



   

                   

Uh, you need

a veterinarian. Hmm?



   

                   

- Why do you ask?

- I saw one.



   

                   

Is it sitting at the next table?

Hmm? [Chuckling]



   

                   

I tell ya, I saw a real dragon

yesterday afternoon.



   

                   

He's owned... owned

by a young boy...



   

                   

by the name of Pete.



   

                   

You are trying to tell me

that there is a dragon here...



   

                   

- In Passamacracka? Yeah.

- "Quoddy."



   

                   

- Yes.

- I told you this was a rotten town.



   

                   

Well, in my educated

opinion, sir,



   

                   

- I think you've been up

in your lighthouse too long.

- Huh?



   

                   

Wait. Wait, listen. What if what

I just told you was true?



   

                   

In my scientific opinion,

the existence of a dragon...



   

                   

would have an impact

of gigantic proportions.



   

                   

Mythology and legend would

become history and science.



   

                   

- One could really make

a quick buck with it.

- Well, I can prove it.



   

                   

I can prove it!

H-His name is Elliott.



   

                   

[Stammering] H-He's downstairs.

You could go and see him right now.



   

                   

Unfortunately,

I cannot make it right now.



   

                   

I have an appointment with a young lady

who's interested in a nursing career.



   

                   

- Oh. Oh.

- I wanna see it.



   

                   

- You wanna see it?

Well, see it you shall!

- Okay.



   

                   

I tell you

that he's in there.



   

                   

[Deep Sighing]



   

                   

[Lips Smacking]



   

                   

- Are you convinced?

- Absolutely.



   

                   

- Well, let's get outta here.

- Wait a minute.



   

                   

- Wait a minute. Wait a mi...

- I-I want to pet him.



   

                   

Huh? You wa...



   

                   

You want to pet him?



   

                   

Are you crazy?



   

                   

I know you ain't drunk.



   

                   

No matter what

you see in here,



   

                   

don't get scared.



   

                   

[Footsteps]



   

                   

Hey, I might as well

tell you straight off,



   

                   

you're gonna see

a hideous monster.



   

                   

- Oh, no.

- Oh, yes.



   

                   

And it's big.



   

                   

Fifty feet of terror!



   

                   

Claws! Claws so sharp

they could tear a man to shreds.



   

                   

- [Gulps]

- Eyes, evil eyes...



   

                   

that can see

right through ya.



   

                   

And a tail that's

so big and powerful,



   

                   

it could destroy

the hull of a frigate!



   

                   

It can wipe out

an entire crew...



   

                   

with one swish

of his tail.



   

                   

Face... Face so terrible,



   

                   

it could turn

a man to stone,



   

                   

a hero into a coward.



   

                   

A flame so hot,



   

                   

it could roast

a turkey!



   

                   

And a mouth

so terrible,



   

                   

it could devour a man and...

[Spits] spit him    leagues.



   

                   

Stay close.



   

                   

[Sputtering]



   

                   

It's g-g-g-got m-me.



   

                   

[Screams]



   

                   

[Stammering]

Look at it!



   

                   

[Screams]



   

                   

[Both Screaming]



   

                   

[Shuddering]



   

                   

Them eyes are lookin'

right through us.



   

                   

Look, don't ever let a dragon

know you're... you're afraid of him.



   

                   

- [Whimpering]

- [Mumbling]



   

                   

Stop-Stop shaking,

and-and smile.



   

                   

Can't stop shaking,

and I am smiling.



   

                   

[Stammering]

Hello. Hello. Hello, Elliott.



   

                   

[Gibberish]



   

                   

Aah! Hey,

see how smart he is?



   

                   

- [Whimpering]

- He said hello to me.



   

                   

Yeah! He likes me!



   

                   

- Y-You do somethin' so he'll like you.

- L-Like me?



   

                   

Yeah. Do somethin'

to make him like you.



   

                   

- Huh?

- You think?



   

                   

Elliott, would you...



   

                   

would you like

a little b-belt, huh?



   

                   

[Sniffing]



   

                   

[Murmuring]



   

                   

[Gulping]



   

                   

Hmm?



   

                   

[Rumbling]



   

                   

[Hissing,

Roaring]

[Humming]



   

                   

[Panting]



   

                   

Is it... Is it two parts fish oil

and three parts seawater...



   

                   

and six parts

potato squeezings,



   

                   

or is it only

two parts seawater, hmm?



   

                   

Ten parts seawater, hmm? That much.

[Chuckles] No wonder they love it.



   

                   

S-s-s-s-s-s...



   

                   

- Saw it.

- Saw what?



   

                   

El-El-El...



   

                   

Dra-Dra-Dra...



   

                   

What is an "el-el-el

dra-dra-dra," hmm?



   

                   

Dr-Dr-Dragon.

[Panting]



   

                   

I-I saw the dragon.



   

                   

L-Lampie wasn't lying.

It's real. It belched flame at me.



   

                   

Belched?

You saw a belching dragon?



   

                   

You sure you weren't belching yourself

in front of the mirror?



   

                   

N-Never saw anything

so horrible in my life.



   

                   

Th-Thought

I was a goner.



   

                   

There was no need

for him to do that.



   

                   

I only offered him

a sociable drink.



   

                   

Hoagy, I can't stand you

when you're drunk.



   

                   

Doc, look at me.

I'm not drunk.



   

                   

What I saw tonight

sobered me in a second.



   

                   

I swear... I swear to you,

there's a big, horrible dragon...



   

                   

up in that cave, I swear.



   

                   

I just realized,

I can't stand you when you're sober!



   

                   

Now, get out of here. Get yourself

a good, stiff drink. Out!



   

                   

I swear.

A vicious dragon.



   

                   

Out!



   

                   

Dragon.

[Humming]



   

                   

I ain't got hardly

nothin' to sell.



   

                   

So? I pulled my nets in,

and there weren't a fish in 'em.



   

                   

I just docked. There ain't nothin' out

in that ocean but water.



   

                   

It's real strange,

I'm tellin' ya.



   

                   

It's like every fish

sorta disappeared.



   

                   

Just suddenly

up and disappeared.



   

                   

There's the cause of it.

That kid Pete.



   

                   

From the day he come to town,

the fishing turned sour.



   

                   

- Don't be ridiculous.

- It's that crazy dragon talk of his.



   

                   

That kid's been nothin'

but bad luck wherever he goes.



   

                   

You're a bunch of

superstitious ding-dongs.



   

                   

You know that fishing grounds shift

from time to time.



   

                   

Elliott'll make

the fish come back.



   

                   

There he goes,

talkin' dragons again.



   

                   

Hey, kid! There ain't no room

in this town for a dragon,



   

                   

and there ain't no room in this town

for jinxes like you, neither!



   

                   

Well, if there's enough room

for a chowderhead like you,



   

                   

then there's more than

enough room for a dragon.



   

                   

There's room for everyone

in this world



   

                   

If everyone makes

some room



   

                   

Won't you move over

and share this world



   

                   

Everyone make

some room



   

                   

Even a dragon deserves a place

a wide-open space



   

                   

With no reins

No chains



   

                   

He wants to play games



   

                   

Dance with you

Give him a chance



   

                   

To sing his song



   

                   

He only wants

to belong



   

                   

There's room for everyone

in this world



   

                   

Will everyone

make some room



   

                   

Spread out while Elliott

gets uncurled



   

                   

Fly on his back

and zoom



   

                   

Rock him and ride him

and line up beside him



   

                   

You'll see how

quickly you blend



   

                   

A dragon is just

one more stranger



   

                   

In search of a friend



   

                   

There's room for everyone

in this world



   

                   

Back up

and make some room



   

                   

Let's all move over

and share this world



   

                   

Everyone make some room



   

                   

Just think how far out

the ocean goes



   

                   

The whirling wind blows

shore to shore, door to door



   

                   

Think of the valleys and mountaintops

The Earth never stops



   

                   

- So deep, so high

- With miles of sky



   

                   

We all have

part of the pie



   

                   

Welcome the dragon

while you have a chance



   

                   

Give him his moment



   

                   

To rise up and dance



   

                   

[Square Dance Music]



   

                   

There's room for everyone

in this world



   

                   

Will everyone make some room



   

                   

- Elliott!

- Love given freely

Can spare this world



   

                   

Let friendly feelings bloom



   

                   

[Together] Just give an inch

Give a yard, never flinch



   

                   

When the time comes

to offer a hand



   

                   

So let's all make sure

we give everyone somewhere to stand

[Bell Ringing]



   

                   

Why is the bell ringing?

There's no one out there.



   

                   

I'll stop it.



   

                   

- Elliott, stop it!

- [Elliott Chattering]



   

                   

The bell isn't supposed

to ring till recess!



   

                   

- Stop that!

- I'm not doing it.



   

                   

Liar. Liar, liar.



   

                   

It's the knuckle cracker

for you.



   

                   

Three for lying and three...

for whom the bell tolls. Come.



   

                   

Put your hands out.

Palms down, knuckles up.



   

                   

One. Two.



   

                   

- Three! Four!

- It doesn't hurt much, Elliott.



   

                   

- Whom are you talking to? Five, six!

- Elliott!



   

                   

- Whom?

- My dragon.



   

                   

- [Laughing]

- Your dragon, wagon.

Nothing but a network of lies!



   

                   

Three more

for your imagination!



   

                   

Seven! Eight!

And a great big nine!



   

                   

Go stand in the corner.



   

                   

[Huffs]



   

                   

Work, work, work, everyone.



   

                   

All this nonsense

about a dragon.



   

                   

[Elliott Humming]



   

                   

- No, Elliott!

- You did it! You pulled

the chair out from under me.



   

                   

- It was Elliott.

- [Gasps] That does it.



   

                   

You've had a taste

of the knuckle cracker.



   

                   

Now you'll have a dose

of the behind breaker.



   

                   

- Bend over.

[Screaming]



   

                   

No, no, Elliott.

Get out!



   

                   

[Elliott Grunting]



   

                   

- [Crowd Chattering]

- [Elliott Growling]



   

                   

No, Elliott, you're going

about this the wrong way.



   

                   

- Go back to the cave. Go on!

- [Elliott Grumbling]



   

                   

[Man]

Jehoshaphat! Would you look at that!



   

                   

- Why do I hear a bell ringing?

- School must be out.



   

                   

It's too early, stupid.



   

                   

See, I told you.

School is out.



   

                   

- Wait! What's happening?

- Pete's dragon wrecked the school!



   

                   

I told you.

I told you!



   

                   

[Man]

What's happened over there? Something

crashed right through the school.



   

                   

Look at it, I'm telling you.

It's a big hole in the side of the wall.



   

                   

And a dragon

came in through one wall...



   

                   

and went out the other wall.



   

                   

Now do you believe me?



   

                   

[Chuckling]



   

                   

- You think this kid Pete

would sell it?

- Money talks.



   

                   

First there's a dragon.

Now he tells me money talks.



   

                   

Will miracles never cease?



   

                   

Dragons, dragons, dragons.



   

                   

Dragons.

Hey, this could be

a very profitable business.



   

                   

There are so many cures

I can take a scissor

and clip him up, rip him up

is a work of art

Good morning, Miss Nora.

So, this is where you live, eh?



   

                   

At last we've seen the light.

[Chuckling]



   

                   

I tell you, you've got to have

a sense of humor these days.



   

                   

- And you must be Pete.

- Yes, sir!



   

                   

I'm Dr. Terminus,

and this is Hoagy,



   

                   

who's doing

his internship with me.



   

                   

I heard about the incident

at school yesterday.



   

                   

- I'd rather not discuss it.

- I realize you must be

disturbed about it, and, uh,



   

                   

up to here in dragons.



   

                   

You know, Pete, I have

always loved dragons.



   

                   

They're such

wonderful creatures.



   

                   

When they're not busy

destroying things, of course.



   

                   

I've had a dream since

I was your age that one day...



   

                   

I would have

my very own dragon.



   

                   

I would consider my life

to be fulfilled...



   

                   

and would be most grateful

if you would sell me your dragon.



   

                   

You wanna buy Elliott?



   

                   

Sight unseen. As is.



   

                   

We'll give him

a good home. Bless him.



   

                   

I couldn't sell him.



   

                   

Sure you could! That's what life

is all about: Buying and selling.



   

                   

- I'll give ya three dollars.

- [Whispering] Offer him four!



   

                   

I'll offer him five.

It'll make his head swim.



   

                   

Five... dollars.



   

                   

I can't sell him.

I don't own him.



   

                   

- Well, what did ya do, rent him?

- Well, who owns him?



   

                   

Well, nobody, I guess.



   

                   

He just came to me.

He only goes to those who need him.



   

                   

I need him.



   

                   

Listen, Doc, I don't know what you're

up to, but you better forget about this.



   

                   

- He's not for sale.

- Nora, go paint your lighthouse.



   

                   

Pete, my boy,

you're conversant with Elliott.



   

                   

Now, talk to him.

Tell him how much I need him.



   

                   

Deliver Elliott to me

and the fiver is yours,



   

                   

plus a bottle of my medicine

that's guaranteed to bring on

puberty two years ahead of time,



   

                   

and that's better than a dragon, hmm?

[Chuckling]



   

                   

- Doc, maybe you should

talk to Elliott yourself.

- Mm-hmm.



   

                   

Wh-Where is he?

Does he speak English?



   

                   

Down the beach.



   

                   

- Where?

- Right there, by the water.



   

                   

- Right. I still don't see...

- That's because he's invisible today.



   

                   

[Laughing]



   

                   

They know they're sitting

on a gold mine.



   

                   

Well, they've had their chance

to make a few dollars.



   

                   

That dragon doesn't belong to anybody.

He's fair game, and he's gonna be ours!



   

                   

We'll bind him up, grind him up

Lock him up, chop him up



   

                   

Can't you hear

that jingle-jangle sound



   

                   

- Oh yeah

- [Cackling]



   

                   

It's money, money, money

by the pound



   

                   

- [Horn Blowing]

- Ahh!



   

                   

[Laughing]



   

                   

Uh! Ah-ah-ah!



   

                   

[Laughing]



   

                   

Fog! Fog!



   

                   

- Where's the fog?

- There's not much fog.



   

                   

We were just using the horn

to chase off a few buzzards.



   

                   

Few buzzards. Nora,

how many times must l...



   

                   

Oh, started already, huh?



   

                   

Look, if you're

gonna whitewash, son,



   

                   

let your brush

go up and down, up...



   

                   

that's a boy...

and down.



   

                   

- Up and down. Up and down.

- That's right.

- This is fun.



   

                   

If it's so much fun, I'm gonna leave

it to you and Nora to finish up...



   

                   

while I go in and take

a nice little nap.



   

                   

This is the best time

I've ever had in my whole life.



   

                   

- It is?

- Yeah.



   

                   

Tell him, Nora.



   

                   

Pete, Lampie and I

have talked it over.



   

                   

- We feel the time has come

for you to stop running.

- Yes, it's true.



   

                   

If it's all right with you,

we'd like you to live here with us.



   

                   

Oh, Nora, Lampie, do you mean this

could be my real home?



   

                   

- It certainly does.

- And Elliott too?



   

                   

- Well, l...

- Sure, and Elliott too.



   

                   

But Elliott has to live

in the cave.



   

                   

All right, he will.



   

                   

- Oh.

- [Lampie Chuckling]



   

                   

No, no, no!

Not on me! Not on me!



   

                   

On the side of the building,

please, huh?



   

                   

- Now up... Up and down.

- And down. Up and down.



   

                   

You know what?



   

                   

It's a brazzle

dazzle day



   

                   

So throw off the past

and everything in it



   

                   

That's the brazzle

dazzle way



   

                   

Enjoying your time

from minute to minute



   

                   

- Running through the sand

without your shoes on

- Shoes on



   

                   

Making sure that you

don't keep your blues on



   

                   

- Finding a boat we can cruise on

- [Whistling]



   

                   

It's a brazzle

dazzle day



   

                   

When you think of love

and never of sorrow



   

                   

That's the brazzle

dazzle way



   

                   

- To do your work now

- And take off tomorrow



   

                   

Flying through the air

You don't need wings on



   

                   

- Wings on

- Wings on



   

                   

Climb right up and feel the thrill

it brings on



   

                   

[All]

Rock with the wind as it sings on



   

                   

Ride higher and higher



   

                   

And glide above the clouds



   

                   

Free



   

                   

No one to catch us

or slow us



   

                   

Even the birds

are below us



   

                   

It's a brazzle dazzle day



   

                   

A lifetime of joy

in just a few hours



   

                   

All our brazzle dazzle years

have just begun



   

                   

We'll follow the sun

and replay

[Breathing On Glass]



   

                   

When your job becomes a frolic

you'll become a "brazz-a-holic"



   

                   

[All]

Ride higher and higher

This brazzle dazzle day



   

                   

Come on. Come on.



   

                   

Whoa, boy. Say, have you seen

anything of a mean, fresh kid...



   

                   

'bout yea big?



   

                   

Answers to the name of Pete.



   

                   

Half of the kids in this town

answer to the name of Pete.



   

                   

Other half don't answer.



   

                   

- Let me break his bones, Pa!

- Just a minute!



   

                   

This particular Pete,

he's always talkin'...



   

                   

to his big, hokey-pokey,

uh, whatchamacallit, uh...



   

                   

- Dragon.

- Dragon?



   

                   

Merle, this here's

the place.



   

                   

Come on, Willie.



   

                   

It would be unethical of me

to leave my patient at a time like this.



   

                   

It's important.

About the dragon.



   

                   

Put your foot on there.



   

                   

Now, don't move, stay tense,

or that weight will fall,



   

                   

that clamp will break your jaw,

tear your gums apart

and go through your cheek.



   

                   

- Tense. Tense!

- [Whimpering]



   

                   

[Whimpering]



   

                   

See that wagonload of worms? They're

lookin' for the kid and the dragon.



   

                   

I knew there'd be competition.

Come on.



   

                   

[Lampie]

Careful as you bring 'em aside.



   

                   

I got one!

I got one!



   

                   

Ugh! It's ugly!



   

                   

Well! If it ain't

our own little Petey!



   

                   

- [Cackling]

- The Gogans!



   

                   

Well, you look so nice and clean,

and those new clothes.



   

                   

I guess all those good manners

I taught you done paid off.



   

                   

Who's that pretty lady

you're with, little Pete?



   

                   

- Yeah. Introduce us.

- Yeah. Introduce us.



   

                   

I'm Nora, and Pete

is staying with me.



   

                   

Why, boys, I believe she's tryin'

to break up our happy little family.



   

                   

Elliott went to look for Paul.

I wish he were here.



   

                   

Don't worry. They won't get you.

Come on, Dad.



   

                   

I guess we're gonna

take him back now, miss,



   

                   

to his own home, sweet home.



   

                   

- Come on, Pete.

- You won't be taking him anywhere!



   

                   

Okay, lady. We're gonna take him

whether you like it or not.



   

                   

- Right, boys?

- Right, Pa.



   

                   

Willie, you grab onto Pete,

You grab Pete.

I wanna hold her.



   

                   

- I wanna hold her!

- Well, I'm gonna hold her!



   

                   

[Squabbling]



   

                   

All right!



   

                   

I'll settle this.



   

                   

You two grab the brat.



   

                   

I'll hold her.



   

                   

Lf'n you think you're gonna hold her

It's downright dangerous,

getting all wet like this.



    

                   

We done had

our bath in May!



    

                   

Ahh-ahh-ahh...



    

                   

- [Sneezing]

Oh, Doc, I got

[Groaning, Panting]

I got this terrible ache in my back!



    

                   

Good. What's rightfully yours

is rightfully yours.



    

                   

Now, you want Pete, right?



    

                   

- Right!

- Right!

- Right!



    

                   

I want... the dragon.



    

                   

- The dragon?

- The dragon?

- [Laughing]



    

                   

W-W-Wait a minute.



    

                   

Now I got

a stitch in my side.



    

                   

You really want

the dragon?



    

                   

Very much. Mm-hmm.



    

                   

Well, then, what are you willing

to give for it?



    

                   

The help you need

getting Pete.



    

                   

I'll need the same kind

of help getting the dragon.



    

                   

[Cackling]



    

                   

[Laughing]



    

                   

N-Now I think the pain's

in my head!



    

                   

- Have we got a deal?

- Sure.



    

                   

We scratch your back,

you scratch ours.



    

                   

The boathouse,

sunset, hmm?



    

                   

Uh, Doc.



    

                   

What you gonna do

with a dragon?



    

                   

Oh, maybe put him on a ranch,

breed him. Hmm?



    

                   

Big stud fees.



    

                   

Ahoy. Ahoy. Here.



    

                   

How would you like to make

the fishing good again?



    

                   

- How do we do that?

- Catch that dragon!



    

                   

Set a trap for him, throw a net

over him, drag him away.



    

                   

Good-bye, Elliott.

Hello, fish. Hmm?



    

                   

Sunset, the boathouse.

Spread the word, hmm?



    

                   

[Fishermen Murmuring

In Agreement]



    

                   

Get back!

Get back!



    

                   

Dr. Terminus! Here's that

Good! Put it

[Ma]

Now you just remember our bargain!



    

                   

Okay, I want separate trip lines

on the primary tarp,



    

                   

the secondary net

and on the tertiary.



    

                   

- T-Tertiary?

- What's that?



    

                   

Dragon medicine.

[Cackling]



    

                   

- Okay, fix it.

- We've done it!



    

                   

Don't signal

till you're re...



    

                   

- [Men Shouting]

- Get this net up off of me!



    

                   

Will you get this... Will you

get this net up! Up! Up!



    

                   

Now, I've gotta go

and get that kid.



    

                   

You rehearse this and make it run

like clockwork or else.



    

                   

Elliott!



    

                   

Oh, Elliott, you were terrific

the way you saved us from the Gogans.



    

                   

- [Laughing]

- What?



    

                   

[Gibberish]



    

                   

Do you mean it?



    

                   

[Clicking Tongue]



    

                   

Wow! That's great.



    

                   

You're the most wonderful dragon

in the whole world.



    

                   

[Soft Growling,

Clicking Tongue]



    

                   

Wait till I tell Nora!



    

                   

[Humming]



    

                   

Nora! Nora! Good news!



    

                   

Elliott found Paul,

and he's on his way home!



    

                   

- Pete...

- I wouldn't say anything

like that if I were you.



    

                   

But it's true.

Elliott said.



    

                   

Please.



    

                   

There's been enough talk

about Paul,



    

                   

and Elliott too.



    

                   

[Sighing]

Both of us have to be...



    

                   

realistic.



    

                   

Paul's ship went down.

He's not coming back.



    

                   

And I have to adjust

my life to it.



    

                   

You have to make

a big adjustment too.



    

                   

You have us now.



    

                   

You don't have to make believe

your only friend is a dragon.



    

                   

But I'm not making believe.



    

                   

That's what I mean

by "realistic."



    

                   

There are no dragons.



    

                   

Except for Elliott.

He's real.



    

                   

Lampie, you've seen him,

haven't you?



    

                   

Well, l...



    

                   

I thought I saw him.



    

                   

Wait till Paul gets here. Then you'll

know how realistic Elliott is.



    

                   

Okay.



    

                   

Until that time, let's try

not to talk about it.



    

                   

How about filling

the reserve oil can?



    

                   

Sure.



    

                   

Well, at least one of us

is entitled to have illusions.



    

                   

[Thunderclap]



    

                   

[Wind Howling]



    

                   

Pete! Pete, it's Elliott!



    

                   

- What's the matter?

- Elliott's in Passapaka... Pakadaka...



    

                   

He's in town, and he's

tearing the place apart.



    

                   

- You've gotta do something.

- Oh, no!



    

                   

[Laughing]



    

                   

We should be

in the channel.



    

                   

We should've made

Passamaquoddy Light by now.



    

                   

I know the light keepers

personally.



    

                   

- He's in there! Come on!

- Elliott! Elliott!



    

                   

Did I say the primary

was really the tertiary?



    

                   

[Men Shouting]



    

                   

Never!



    

                   

- Where's Elliott?

- Nowhere!



    

                   

Your hokey-pokey dragon's

out helping Santa Claus pull his sled!



    

                   

- Boys!

- Let me go!



    

                   

Now you're never

gonna get away again!



    

                   

We're gonna put chains

on you when you're workin'!



    

                   

- And when you're not workin'.

- And when you're sleepin'!



    

                   

Okay, okay. Tear him to pieces

in your own time.



    

                   

Right now he is

the bait for the trap.



    

                   

Take him in there where that thing can

see him when he comes through the door.



    

                   

He'll head straight for Pete.

We spring the trap.



    

                   

After the tertiary net drops on him,

I'll give you the signal,



    

                   

and you fire the harpoon

right into the middle.



    

                   

- No! No!

- Yes! Yes! Got it?



    

                   

Got it!



    

                   

But what I don't got is,

h-h-how you gonna get that monster,



    

                   

that hideous beast, that nightmare

sent by the devil, to come here?



    

                   

Easy. We get someone he knows

to bring him here.



    

                   

Well, who'd be crazy enough

to do that?



    

                   

No! No!



    

                   

He knows you.

He trusts you.



    

                   

He scares me!

He hates me!



    

                   

Hoagy.



    

                   

We are all on this earth

for a purpose,



    

                   

and the time

for your purpose is now.



    

                   

I know that inside this pale, frail,

pathetic shell of a man...



    

                   

there is a Vesuvius

ready to erupt.



    

                   

Now, I've known you,

man and beast,



    

                   

since, since you

were nothing.



    

                   

But now, Hoagy, now,

you're still nothing,



    

                   

but you could be

something!



    

                   

You can be a somebody.



    

                   

A legend, Hoagy. A legend in

your own lifetime, not a joke!



    

                   

The moment's here, Hoagy.



    

                   

Grab it. Grab it!



    

                   

Today the jester.

Tomorrow the king!



    

                   

- No!

- Get out!



    

                   

[Whimpering]



    

                   

[Elliott Snoring]



    

                   

E-Elliott.



    

                   

C-Can you come out here

for a second? Please?



    

                   

[Snoring]



    

                   

[Gasping]



    

                   

[Snoring]



    

                   

[Snoring]



    

                   

Wake up.



    

                   

W-W-Wake up!



    

                   

[Snarling]



    

                   

D-D-Don't get n-n-nervous!



    

                   

I'm a friend.



    

                   

[Groaning, Snorting]



    

                   

Don't roast me!



    

                   

[Snarling]

Boo!



    

                   

- Ahh!

- [Laughing]



    

                   

H-Hon... Honest.



    

                   

L-l-I-I-I got a m-mess...



    

                   

m-m-m-message about P-P-Pete!



    

                   

- T-The G-G-Gogans...

- [Snarling]



    

                   

Got P-P-P-Pete!



    

                   

- [Bellowing]

- Ahh!



    

                   

[Snarling, Roaring]



    

                   

Aaah!



    

                   

Follow me!



    

                   

[Thunderclap]



    

                   

There's a reef between us

and the channel.



    

                   

Dad, I can't find Pete.



    

                   

- Can you get it lit?

- I have to put in a dry wick.



    

                   

Battle stations!



    

                   

[Hoagy] I told you!

I told you, Elliott! There he is!



    

                   

Look out, Elliott!

It's a trap!



    

                   

Aaah! Get him!

He's right here!



    

                   

Drop everything!



    

                   

Drop everything!



    

                   

[Men Shouting]



    

                   

[Elliott Bellowing]



    

                   

Elliott, over here!



    

                   

[Hoagy] Get me out of here!

Elliott, don't step on me!



    

                   

- Am I seeing what I think I'm seeing?

- It's beginnin' to look like a...



    

                   

- Dragon!

- Don't say that!



    

                   

I've got it!

We've done it! Out!



    

                   

We've got it!

We've got it!



    

                   

- Hoagy!

- [Elliott Growling]



    

                   

Please!

Please, let me out!



    

                   

- Doc, please!

- Get out of there! Get out of there!



    

                   

- Doc, get me out!

Get me out! Get me out!

- Okay. Okay!



    

                   

[Growling]



    

                   

- [Growling]

- [Men Shouting]



    

                   

Help, Elliott, help!



    

                   

Man this harpoon. Take this.

[Chuckling]



    

                   

Light the fuse.



    

                   

No, no!

Don't shoot Elliott!



    

                   

[Ma Screaming,

Shouting]



    

                   

[Pa]

Get him back! Get him back!



    

                   

The other.



    

                   

- [Pa] Pick him up!

- [Ma] Take him outside!



    

                   

[Hoagy]

Get out of the way!



    

                   

- [Whimpering]

- [Screaming]



    

                   

He's going!

Let me get a bead on him!



    

                   

- Elliott, save me!

- [Ma] Don't let him get away again!

Get him outta here!



    

                   

- Hands...

- Elliott, don't let 'em take me!



    

                   

[Growling]



    

                   

[Roaring]



    

                   

[Stammering]

Wait! Wait!



    

                   

[Ma Shouting]



    

                   

- [Muttering]

- [Gogans Whimpering]



    

                   

Huh? Pete!



    

                   

- Thanks, Elliott.

- [Muttering]



    

                   

You just listen to me!

That there boy belongs to me!



    

                   

I paid fifty dollars for him,

plus legals, and I got a bill

of sale right here to prove it.



    

                   

[Snarling]



    

                   

- Boo.

- [Screaming]



    

                   

[Ma]

Merle, help! Don't just stand there!



    

                   

Come on! Get me outta here!

Get me outta here!



    

                   

[Ma]

You clucks!



    

                   

[Elliott Laughing]



    

                   

- [Grunting, Groaning]

- [Ma] Let him keep the brat!



    

                   

[Roaring]



    

                   

[Ma]

Come on! Get in the wagon!



    

                   

[Shouting]



    

                   

[Ma]

Wait! Wait for us!



    

                   

[Elliott Howling]



    

                   

Daaah-ah-ah!



    

                   

Aaah-hoo-hoo-hoo!

[Screaming]



    

                   

Aaah! Doh!



    

                   

Hoagy, get me down!



    

                   

We've gotta do something!

That dragon's gonna get away!



    

                   

[Snarling]



    

                   

[Screaming]

He's gonna eat us up!



    

                   

[Growling]



    

                   

Oh!



    

                   

[Whimpering]



    

                   

[Wagon Crashing]



    

                   

...in the street.

Quite a storm here.



    

                   

Wait a minute.

Watch those stairs.



    

                   

- [Gasping]

- [Electricity Crackling]



    

                   

Oh, look!



    

                   

Th-Th-There really

is a dragon!



    

                   

Yes, and he saved us!



    

                   

- Dragon!

- A dragon! A real dragon!



    

                   

- Attaboy, Elliott.

- [Muttering]



    

                   

[Clicking Tongue]



    

                   

That ship's headed

for the reef!



    

                   

Go down and sound

the foghorn!



    

                   

[Foghorn Blowing]



    

                   

Elliott, quick! Quick!



    

                   

[Foghorn Blowing]



    

                   

[Ship Creaking]



    

                   

Nora, let me have the light

so I can see what I'm doing.



    

                   

[Foghorn Blowing]



    

                   

Come on, Elliott.

You can do it.



    

                   

- [Foghorn Blowing]

- I got it!



    

                   

Come on, Elliott.



    

                   

- [Foghorn Blowing]

- Come on, Elliott!



    

                   

[Panting]



    

                   

[Pete]

Hurry!



    

                   

What's the matter?



    

                   

Everything is wet in here,

that's what's the matter!



    

                   

- Don't worry, Lampie. Elliott came.

- Elliott?



    

                   

That's all I need is

a dragon in here. Ah!



    

                   

Get him outta here!



    

                   

[Muttering]



    

                   

Start your burner, Elliott.

Light the wick.



    

                   

[Gibberish]



    

                   

- [Clicking Tongue]

- All right, Elliott. Go ahead. Light it.



    

                   

[Pete]

Now, Elliott! Now!



    

                   

All right.

Where's the fire?



    

                   

- [Groaning]

- What's the matter?



    

                   

[Gibberish, Sputtering]



    

                   

- He's all squished up in the stairs.

- [Foghorn Blowing]



    

                   

- [Foghorn Blowing]

- [Elliott Blowing]



    

                   

- El-Elliott?

- [Gibberish]



    

                   

He's real.

He's really real.



    

                   

[Muttering,

Clicking Tongue]



    

                   

- Of course he is.

He's gonna light the wick.

- Can he do it?



    

                   

Can he? He can throw a flame clear

across to Bar Harbor...



    

                   

if he can get

his own burner goin'!



    

                   

[Gasping]



    

                   

- Come on, Elliott!

- [Whining]

- Go on!



    

                   

[Lampie]

Blow, Elliott!



    

                   

[Drawing A Deep Breath]



    

                   

- Wow! [Panting]

- [Pete] Elliott, you did it!



    

                   

[Gibberish,

Clicking Tongue]



    

                   

Look there!



    

                   

That means the harbor

is dead ahead, Captain!



    

                   

Hard right rudder!



    

                   

Elliott, I could give you

a great big kiss.



    

                   

[Shuddering]



    

                   

A dragon, a dragon

You bet we saw a dragon



    

                   

So big and brave, he came to

save a village in distress



    

                   

He kept the ship from crashing

when he heard the S.O.S.



    

                   

He faced a group of villains

and he fought them with success



    

                   

He's great

He's great



    

                   

- A chum

- A pal

- A mate



    

                   

A dragon, a dragon

We're proud to love a dragon



    

                   

Before he came to fight the storm

the night was dark and dim



    

                   

Now everyone in town is safe again

because of him



    

                   

He filled the ocean full of fish

He packed it to the brim



    

                   

We want it known

that he's our very own



    

                   

Nora! Nora!



    

                   

Paul!



    

                   

Gather around, everyone. I'm going

to have a few appropriate words to say.



    

                   

Gather around. Come on.

Closer, closer.



    

                   

There you are, yes.

It's nice to see you.



    

                   

Ladies...

Ladies and gentlemen,



    

                   

Pete, I want you to thank

Elliott the dragon...



    

                   

for the council here

and all the townspeople.



    

                   

- You do that?

- Well, he's right here.



    

                   

He'd appreciate it

if you'd thank him yourself.



    

                   

- [Laughter]

- You mean I can talk right to him, huh?



    

                   

Go right to the main source.

That was my campaign...



    

                   

- No, he's over here.

- Oh! Oh, over that side.



    

                   

So, uh, on behalf of...



    

                   

[Laughter]



    

                   

[Muttering]

Thank you.



    

                   

It's a brazzle dazzle day



    

                   

- So throw off the past

and everything in it

- [Elliott Clicking Tongue]



    

                   

That's the brazzle

dazzle way



    

                   

Enjoying your time

from minute to minute



    

                   

Hi!



    

                   

Oh, Elliott,

you're the greatest.



    

                   

You've made everybody happy,

especially me.



    

                   

I'm very proud of you.



    

                   

[Muttering]



    

                   

We've got a real family now

and a place to live.



    

                   

[Clearing Throat]



    

                   

[Gibberish]



    

                   

You've gotta go?

When will you be back?



    

                   

[Gulping, Muttering,

Sniffling]



    

                   

You... You won't be back?



    

                   

[Muttering]



    

                   

But why?



    

                   

Did I do something wrong?



    

                   

[Muttering]



    

                   

[Snarling]



    

                   

There's another kid

in trouble?



    

                   

[Muttering,

Growling]



    

                   

[Soft Roar]



    

                   

Well, if anyone can get him

out of it, you can.



    

                   

- Ohh...

- [Giggling]



    

                   

[Muttering]



    

                   

I won't see you again,

will I?



    

                   

Ever.



    

                   

[Sniffling, Whimpering]



    

                   

[Sniffling]



    

                   

What are you sniffing for?



    

                   

[Gasping, Sneezing]



    

                   

[Laughing]



    

                   

[Chuckling]



    

                   

Now, remember,

don't scare people.



    

                   

[Gibberish]



    

                   

Good-bye, Elliott.

Good-bye.



    

                   

[Gibberish]



    

                   

- It is a dragon!

- [Pete, Lampie, Nora] It's Elliott!



    

                   

[Pete] And remember,

you're supposed to be invisible!
