JIGO: So, the demon monster turned out to be a giant boar.
ASHITAKA: I followed it's trail westward, through the mountains, to where the samurai were attacking those villagers, but then.
You lost it. That's life.
See this place here? When I came here last, a few years back, this was a lovely little village. But then there must have been a flood, or a landslide, or a fire. The only sure thing is that everybody's dead. These days, there are angry ghosts all around us, dead from wars, sickness, starvation. And nobody cares. So you say you're curse? Well, so what? So's the whole damned world.
ASHITAKA: I was wrong to fight in that village. Two men are dead because of me.
JIGO: Samurai thugs. You win some, you lose some. Here,
hand me your bowl.
My point is that everybody dies, boy. Some now, some later. From brothel girl to Emperor. Hmm. I've heard them say, that the Emperor has promised an entire hill of gold to anyone who can help him live forever. Beautiful bowl. I've seen one other like it. Have you ever heard of the Emishi people? They're said to ride red elks. They also use stone arrowheads just like you. 'Course they were all wiped out five hundred years ago. Don't worry. I won't tell anyone where you're from. Anyway, I've got bigger fish to fry.
Have you ever come across anything like this before?
JIGO: Never have.
ASHITAKA: It came from the giant boar. It was inside him, and I'm sure it was this little ball of iron that killed him.
JIGO: There's a place high in the mountains far to the West of here. It's where the Spirit of the Forest dwells and it's a very dangerous place for humans. To enter there is certain death.
ASHITAKA: The Spirit of the Forest?
JIGO: I've been told the beasts there are all giants, just as they were in the dawn of time.
JIGO: See you there, my friend.
OX DRIVER 1: Come on! Move it!
DRIVERS: Hyah! Move! Hyah! Hyah! Come on! Watch the load!
OX DRIVER 2: Push him! Hyah! Ha!
The sooner we get this rice home, the sooner we eat! Let's move!
OX DRIVER 1: Coming this way! wolves!
EBOSHI: Don't let the oxen panic! Stay calm! Take up your positions!
GONZA: Keep your powder dry! Make sure you wait for them to come within range!
EBOSHI: Ready... and fire! Second round... fire!
RIFLE MAN: Fire!
GONZA: That was it? They weren't so big.
EBOSHI: They're just pups. Wait 'till you see thier mother.
OX DRIVER 1: Where are they?
EBOSHI: It's Moro! Come on...
GONZA: We killed her!
EBOSHI: You forget, she is a god. It will take more than that.
GONZA: She certainly did some damage.
EBOSHI: We'll move out now.
GONZA: But what about the men she pushed off the cliff?!
EBOSHI: They're dead. Let's get the living home.
ASHITAKA: He's still breathing. Hang on. Hug?
ASHITAKA: My name is Ashitaka!
I've traveled far from lands from the east.
Are you ancient gods and have I at last come to the realm of the Spirit of the Forest?
SAN: Go away!
KOHROKU: Yeahhhh! Help! Ahhh!
ASHITAKA: A Kodama! I never thought I would see one of them here.
KOHROKU: Ah ah ah ah ah! Yaaaaa! No, no, no!
ASHITAKA: Easy there. You don't want to make your injuries worse do you?
ASHITAKA: He's a tree spirit. He brings good luck. It's a sign this forest is healthy.
KOHROKU: But they'll lead their lord and master right to us!
ASHITAKA: Who do you mean? You mean those wolves I just saw?
KOHROKU: No, I mean a real monster! Like a huge enormous deer! Except they say it's got a human face sometimes, and then at night they say it. Ahhh! Where'd it go? Yeahhhh! Look! Re-enforcement's! We're doomed! Oh, no!
ASHITAKA: If Yakul's not afraid, then we have nothing to worry about here.
Would you be kind enough to grant us passage through your forest, little one?
KOHROKU: Oh no...
KOHROKU: Ehhh, sir. I really think we should turn around now. I wonder, did I ever mention that no humans have ever made it through these woods alive? There's a lovely little trail back across the river.
ASHITAKA: The current is too swift for us to get across. And your friend's injuries are very bad. If we don't get him back soon he doesn't have a chance.
Hey, little fellow, are you showing us the way or just getting us more lost?
KOHROKU: Please sir! I'm really pretty sure they're not trying to help us get home! Oh, my God! There's thousands of them!
ASHITAKA: Look at that. That must be their mother. A fine old tree. Oh, this place is magical. The tracks of those wolves and the girl with them. This place must be where the four of them live.
KOHROKU: Sir, I think maybe we took a wrong turn somewhere.
This is a place for gods and demons.
ASHITAKA: I think we're safe. We'll rest a bit. More tracks? Whatever made these... made them recently. Augghh!
KOHROKU: Sir! What's going on? Are you all right?! Ah, sir, what just happened there? You went white as a sheet all of a sudden. I warned you about this place.
ASHITAKA: Here. Did you see anything just then?
KOHROKU: Like what?
ASHITAKA: Forget it. Hang on just a little longer. You're almost home.
RIFLE MAN: I failed her.
ASHITAKA: It's gone. Whatever it was. That's strange. Suddenly he doesn't feel heavy at all.
KOHROKU: My arm it, it doesn't hurt! It's healed! Ack! No, it's still broken!
KOHROKU: Ya-ha! Sir, you were right! We made it back home just like you said!
ASHITAKA: It's a fortress.
KOHROKU: It's Lady Eboshi's Irontown. We make iron her from the ore in the sand. Hey there! Look! It's me!
BOATMAN 1: Look, there!
Someone's come out of the woods!
BOATMAN 2: Is it the Wolf Girl?
KOHROKU: Look, it's me! Kohroku, the Ox Driver!
VILLAGERS: It's Kohroku! Kohroku's alive! He's alive! Let's go see!
WARRIOR 1: It's true! Kohroku is still alive!
WARRIOR 2: Let's go see!
GONZA: Quiet! Stop that noise! I'm trying to tally these accounts here, so shut up!
VILLAGER: But haven't you heard? Kohroku's come back from the dead!
MAN 1: There they are!
MAN 2: There he is!
MAN 3: That's it.
MAN 1: This is unbelievable!
MAN 2: Where are the others, Kohroku?
MAN 3: Yes, is my son with you?
I'm afraid we're the only ones who made it.
ASHITAKA: Be careful with him.
WOMAN: It's never the guards that die.
GONZA: Stand aside!
MAN 1: That man in the weird costume, sir. Who do you think he could be?
GONZA: He's obviously an outsider.
KOHROKU: Augh! Listen to me, everyone! This stranger saved our lives! He carried the rifleman all the way back! You should be grateful to him! Augh! Hey, watch the arm! Ahh!
GONZA: Ah, hold it right there! I'm very grateful to you for bringing these men back to us, stranger. But something doesn't smell right. You got back here almost as fast as we did. And through the Forbidden Forest! On top of that, you did it with two badly injured men! And you...
GONZA: And you want me to believe that you.
TOKI: Kohroku! You're alive!
KOHROKU: Toki, my love!
TOKI: Huh? That's just great! How are you ever going to drive the oxen now all banged up and mangled?!
KOHROKU: But, my little flower.
TOKI: You scared me half to death! Don't you little flower me! I wish the wolves had eaten you! Then maybe I could have found a real husband!
KOHROKU: Sweetness, can we discuss this later?
GONZA: Toki, save your sweet nothing for some other time.
TOKI: And as for you, Gonza! A fine captain of the guard you are! Always strutting and throwing your weight around once the dangers over! You never do a lick of work around here!
GONZA: That's unfair and untrue.
TOKI: Thanks, stranger. My husband's an idiot but I'm glad he's back safe and sound.
ASHITAKA: That's a relief. I was starting to think I've done something wrong by bringing him back home.
