TOKI: Huh? Say, why don't you take the mask off? I bet you're really handsome.
EBOSHI: Gonza, bring the stranger to me later.
I would like to thank him personally.
KOHROKU: Ah, uh, yes?
EBOSHI: I'm happy you're back. And I apologize.
KOHROKU: Ah, okay.
TOKI: Oh oh, milady. You really shouldn't tell him things like that. If you're too nice to him, he'll walk all over you.
EBOSHI: I hope you'll forgive me too, Toki. I was responsible. I should have never let it happen.
TOKI: Ah, that's all right. Milady, if you hadn't been there the wolves would have eaten everyone and we would all have to find ourselves new husbands.
EBOSHI: Get some rest, traveler. I will see you this evening.
TOKI: Wow. Hey!
You're not handsome, you're gorgeous!
RICE MAN: Here! You know they had to fight off wolves to get this rice through!
WOMAN: Just dish it out!
WOMEN 1: Is he there? There he is! Where is he?
WOMAN 2: Over there, near the back!
WOMAN 3: Toki was right. He is handsome.
WOMAN 2: Yeah, no bet.
WOMAN 4: But he's so young!
WOMAN 5: That never stopped you before!
MAN 1: Quiet out there! We lost some good men today!
MAN 2: Yeah, there's lots of gorgeous men in here, honey!
WOMAN 3: I've seen cattle that look better.
WOMAN 2: Listen stranger, why don't you come over to our place? You don't want to stay in this stinking bar.
MAN 3: Look, woman! We risked our lives to bring you the rice you're all eating tonight! So watch your mouth!
WOMAN 2: And who made the iron that paid for the rice? Huh? Tell me that.
WOMAN 3: Yeah, we're pumping those bellows while you pigs are in bed.
ASHITAKA: Actually, if it's not too much trouble, lady's, I would like to see where you work.
N 1: You would?
WOMAN 3: We'll have to work in make-up tonight!
Don't be a stranger.
WOMEN: Don't forget now! We'll be waiting.
MAN 3: It's best not to pay them any mind, you know. Lady Eboshi spoils them rotten. That's why they're like that.
ASHITAKA: Well, they say that
happy women make a happy village.
MAN 4: Happy?! Huh?! Those kind of women working here?!
MAN 1: Living like that, it's a disgrace! They defile the iron. The Lady Eboshi goes around buying the contract of every brothel girl she can find.
OLD MAN: Milady has a kind heart. That's all.
MAN 3: And you've got rice on your chin, old man.
MAN 4: Well, it's true. Everything here has turned upside down since she showed up.
MAN 2: That's right! She's not even afraid of the gods, that woman. Why you should have seen the way she dealt with Nago, am I right?
ASHITAKA: Who's Nago?
MAN 2: Who's Nago?! The gigantic boar god! He used to rule this whole forest! We couldn't even get near the mountain's with him around. Nothing to do but sit around on our backsides for months, staring at a bunch of angry boars.
MAN 1: Mmm-hmm. See, the iron in the sand under this town had all been dug out.
MAN 2: So then we tried to get at the iron under the mountain, but Nago wasn't going to stand for that.
MAN 3: The problem was, before we could dig for the iron, we had to clear away the forest. And that's what made the boar angry.
MAN 1: He's feeling no pain!
MAN 2: Then one day, Lady Eboshi came along with her warriors and her rifles.
MAN 3: Young man, what's wrong? Is something hurting your arm?
ASHITAKA: No. I was just thinking about the boar god. I was thinking of how he must have dies filled with hate.
EBOSHI: Forgive me for keeping you waiting, stranger.
That's good iron. We were running behind with tomorrow's shipment.
Let's have a rest.You may tell the others.
WOMAN: Yes, ma'am.
EBOSHI: Some think you're either a spy for the Wolf Girl or Lord Asano and his samurai. There are a lot of people out there with their eye on this iron. Why are you here, if you don't mind my asking?
ASHITAKA: I believe you'll recognize this. It shattered the bones of a giant boar. Rotted his flesh and turned him into a monster. I fought with him and for that I was cursed with this mark on my arm. And soon it will kill me.
EBOSHI: Where is it you come from? I've never seen a red elk like that before.
ASHITAKA: I have come a very long way. I can't tell you more than that.
GONZA: Answer milady's question or I'll cut you in half!
EBOSHI: What do you plan to do? What exactly are you here for?
ASHITAKA: To see with eyes unclouded by hate.
EBOSHI: Eyes unclouded? That explains it.
Come, I'll show you all my secrets.
GONZA: Is that wise, milady?
EBOSHI: Gonza, take over for me.
GONZA: Ahhh, ohhh, eugrahhhhh!
EBOSHI: This is my garden. None of the towns-people dare to come here. Follow me if you wish to learn me secret. Good evening.
LEPER WOMAN 1: We've only just finished it, milady.
EBOSHI: It's still too heavy.
LEPER WOMAN 2: Perhaps if you didn't hold it so delicately.
LEPER MAN 1: Milady, if you make them any lighter, they'll fall apart.
EBOSHI: I trust you to figure it out. They're not for me. They're for the other women here.
LEPER WOMAN 1: Ha, that'll be something to see.
This is the latest rifle I've asked these people to design.
The one's we brought here have turned out to be too heavy. These will kill forest monsters and pierce through the thickest samurai armor.
LEPER MAN 1: You'd better watch it, young man. The Lady Eboshi wants to rule the world.
EBOSHI: I'm sorry to have to push you all so hard. I'll have wine sent down later.
LEPER MAN 1: Oohh. That would be nice.
ASHITAKA: First you steal the boar's forest from him, then transform him into a demon. Now you're making even deadlier weapons. How much more hatred and pain do you think we need?!
EBOSHI: Yes, I'm the one who shot the boar. And I'm sorry that you suffer, I truly am. That brainless pig. I'm the one he should have put a curse on, not you.
LEPER MEN: No!
EBOSHI: Does that right hand of yours wish to kill me now, Ashitaka?
ASHITAKA: If it would lift the curse, I'd let it tear you apart. But even that wouldn't end the killing now would it?
EBOSHI: No, it wouldn't. It would have to kill all of us to be at peace.
LEPER MAN 2: Milady, Osa has something to say.
OSA: Forgive me, milady. You must not make light of the boy's strength.
Young man, like you I know what rage feels like and grief and helplessness.
But you must not take your revenge out on Lady Eboshi. She's the only one who saw us as human beings. We are lepers. The world hates and fears us, but she, she took us in and washed our rotting flesh and bandaged us.
LEPER MAN 2: Osa...
OSA: Life is suffering. It is hard. The world is cursed but still you find reasons to keep living. I'm sorry. I'm not making any sense.
EBOSHI: Oh, they just keep coming back.
Every night they're out there planting trees, trying to turn the mountain into a forest again.
Stay here. Help me kill the Forest Spirit, Ashitaka.
ASHITAKA: You would do that? Kill the very heart of the forest?
EBOSHI: Without that ancient god, the animals here would be nothing but dumb beasts once more. When the forests have been cleared and the wolves wiped out, this desolate place
will be the richest land in the world. And Princess Mononoke would become human.
ASHITAKA: Princess Mononoke?
EBOSHI: Princess of the spirits of ghouls, beasts, and ancient gods. The wolves stole her soul and now she lives to kill me. The legends say the blood of the Great Forest Spirit can heal anything. Perhaps it can cure my poor lepers. Might even be able to lift your curse, Ashitaka.
LEPER MAN 1: Milady? How does the action feel to you? Better?
EBOSHI: Smooth as silk. The perfect thing for ruling the world. It's still to heavy for the girls.
LEPER MAN 1: All right.
TOKI: Well, look who's here.
ASHITAKA: Evening. All right if I work the bellows for a while?
TOKI: Well, I guess so.
ASHITAKA: Excuse me. May I try it?
WOMAN 1: Hug?
TOKI: It's okay. Might as well let him try.
WOMAN 1: But, but...
WOMAN 2: When you get tired I'll take over for you.
TOKI: Well, that won't be long.
WOMAN 1: Whoops! Better keep that kimono shut tight, girl!
I'm impressed. But you'll never keep that pace up.
ASHITAKA: It's hard work, isn't it?
TOKI: You bet. And our shifts are four days long.
ASHITAKA: You must live hard lives here.
WOMAN 3: Yep!
TOKI: I suppose. Yeah, but it sure beats working a brothel in the city, huh?
WOMAN 4: Mmm-hmm. Here we can eat as much as we want. And the men don't bother us!
WOMAN 5: Unless we want 'em to!
WOMEN: Ohhh...Ha, ha, ha!
WOMAN 1: But you can't leave tomorrow!
WOMAN 2: Can't you stay a little longer?
WOMAN 1: You can stay and work here.
ASHITAKA: Thank you all, but there's someone I have to find out there in the forest. She's here!
GUARD: The wolves are coming! It's the Wolf Princess!
MAN 1: Hurry!
ASHITAKA: Stop! No, wait! I don't want to fight you! I'm a friend!
MAN 1: Here! She's here!
MAN 2: She's on the roof.
MAN 3: Hurry, she's after Lady Eboshi!
MAN 1: Somebody cut her off.
MAN 2: She's headed for the forge!
GONZA: Keep stocking those fires! Riflemen to the stock cave! We got her right where we want her!
WOMAN: Go! Let's go! Move!
MAN 2: A weapon for every man! Everyone defends Irontown!
WOMAN: Toki, she's on the roof!
TOKI: Now don't get excited. Keep those bellows working. Whatever happens, we can't let those fires go out!
EBOSHI: Is she alone?
GONZA: Yes. She can't escape. We have her cornered. You know she means to kill you this time.
EBOSHI: We'll see about that. Come on.
GONZA: Make room for milady!
