JIGO: Look, there must be hundreds of them!
ARCHER: Those boars are not from this region.
They must have been traveling for months to get all the way up here.
That one's Okkoto!
JIGO: Can't be! They say he died a hundred years ago!
ARCHER: It's him all right. I know those old tusks. And it looks like he brought along his whole tribe.
JIGO: He's seen us! Let's get out of here! Come on, you cowards! Move! Quickly!
ASHITAKA: The bullet wound's gone! Yakul. The marks still there.
SAN: Finally you're awake. You know, you really should thank Yakul. He hasn't left your side this whole time.
ASHITAKA: How'd you know his name's Yakul?
SAN: He told me. And
he told me about you, about your village, your people and your forest.
The Forest Spirit brought you back to life again. He wants you to live.
ASHITAKA: I had the strangest dream. There was a golden creature.
SAN: Eat this. Chew.
OKKOTO: We are here to kill the humans and save the forest. Why are the humans here, Moro?
MORO: Humans are everywhere these days. Go back to your own mountain. Kill them there. The girl is San, my daughter.
OKKOTO: We will kill them here!
We will save this forest! What is that other human doing here?
SAN: He was shot! And then the Great Spirit healed his wound! This man is not our enemy!
OKKOTO: The Forest Spirit saved him?! Saved the life of that loathsome runt?! Why didn't he save Nago?! Is he not the Guardian of the Forest?! Why?!
MORO: The Forest Spirit gives life and takes life away. Life and death are his alone. Or have you boars forgotten that?
OKKOTO: You lie! You must have begged the Forest Spirit to spare his life! But you did not beg for Nago, did you?!
MORO: Nago was afraid to die. Now, I too carry within my breast a poison human bullet. Nago fled and the darkness took him. I remain and contemplate my death.
Mother, please ask the Forest Spirit to save you.
MORO: I have lived long enough, San. Soon the Forest Spirit will let me rest forever.
SAN: All these years you defended the Forest Spirit. He must save you!
OKKOTO: You are not fooling us. Nago was beautiful and strong. He would not have run from anything! You wolves must have eaten him!
SAN: Quiet! Watch what you say, you filthy pig!
ASHITAKA: Gods of the mountain? Please listen. Nago died far from here. And I was the one who killed him. He had become some kind of demon. One day, he attacked our village. If you want proof, look at my hand, where he touched me. I came here to beg the Forest Spirit to lift Nago's curse from me. He healed the bullet wound in my side, but the demon mark remains. First it will tear my soul apart, then it will kill me.
MORO: Okkoto. Finally a boar who will listen to reason.
SAN: No, Lord Okkoto, wait! Please, you mustn't eat him!
OKKOTO: Ah, you are Moro's human child, aren't you? I've heard of you.
SAN: You're blind.
OKKOTO: Stand back. I will not eat him.
ASHITAKA: It's all right, San. My Lord Okkoto, what I said about Nago's death was the truth.
I believe you. And I thank you for it, young one.
I am only grieved and ashamed that such a demon has come from our tribe.
ASHITAKA: Oh, mighty lord. Is there a way to lift Nago's curse from me?
OKKOTO: Leave this forest. For the next time we meet, I will have to kill you.
MORO: You can not win against the humans. Their guns will destroy you all.
OKKOTO: Look on my tribe, Moro. We grow small, and we grow stupid. We will soon be nothing but squealing game that the humans hunt for their meat.
MORO: You'd risk everything on one last battle. That's just what the humans want.
OKKOTO: I do not ask the help of the Wolf Tribe. Even if everyone of us dies, it will be a battle the humans never forget.
SAN: The Forest Spirit.
MAN 1: Come on, keep your oxen together! Hurry!
EBOSHI: Get ready now. A little bit closer. Fire!
SAMURAI 1: Ahhhhhh! My Armmm!
GONZA: Reload! Fire!
SAMURAI 2: Attack!
SAMURAI 3: Ready!
JIGO: Well, I see somebody is going to have to go play the peacemaker. Take our riflemen and hide behind the cliffs.
MONK: Yes, sir. Let's go!
JIGO: Stay there until I send for you.
Come on! Let's keep the oxen moving!
We have to get back to Irontown!
WOMAN: There they are! Coming around the path!
MONK: The hunters are ready, sir.
JIGO: Excellent. Well done, my boy. Go and spread the word. We'll be moving out presently.
MONK: Yes, sir.
EBOSHI: Greetings, Jigo.
JIGO: Well, I've got the Emperor breathing down my neck, and you're busy playing war with Lord Asano.
EBOSHI: And you would have nothing to do with Lord Asano being here, now would you?
JIGO: Of course not. Whatever made you think that?
EBOSHI: He'll call a truce if I give him half my iron.
JIGO: Is that right? Well, he's a greedy bastard, isn't he? But, all the same, you might as well let him have his iron. Listen, Eboshi. The boar's are gathering for battle. And you know what that means. You made me a promise. Now, once you get me the head of the Forest Spirit, then we can come back and destroy Lord Asano together.
WOMAN 1: Watch out, milady! There's a horseman coming! Get in!
JIGO: Well, speak of the devil. A messenger from Lord Asano.
We have guests. Mind your manners ladies,
WOMEN: Yes, ma'am. Welcome back, milady!
JIGO: Whoa! Wait, won't you even talk to the man?
MESSENGER: Lady Eboshi! Mistress of Irontown! I bring a message to you from my Lord Asano. You have fought valiantly and well. Now open your gates so that we may speak with you.
WOMAN 2: Humph! We can hear you just fine from down there!
WOMAN 1: Milady took this mountain away from the gods, the boars, and the beasts.
WOMAN 3: And now that it's worth something you want it!
WOMAN 1: Well, you won't get it!
MESSENGER: The brazen impudence! You ladies need to be taught some respect!
WOMAN 1: Respect? What's that?
WOMAN 2: We haven't had any respect since the day we were born!
WOMAN 2: You want some of our iron? Here you go!
JIGO: They are really something! They'll fight gods or samurai, it doesn't matter to them! They are an amazing bunch, your girls. They were wasted in the brothels.
EBOSHI: Impressive for a piece of paper.
JIGO: Well, you know, it's gotten me all the best hunters and trappers around. Remember, my dear lady, we're after a god, not just a beast.
EBOSHI: Girls, come here.
WOMAN 1: Yes, milady? What is it?
Do you have any idea who this paper has come from?
From the Emperor himself.
WOMAN 1: That's nice, who's he?
WOMAN 2: Is he supposed to be important?
WOMAN 1: I'm serious, who's he? Should we know?
JIGO: Yes, they're really something.
EBOSHI: Thank you.
WOMAN 1: Yes, milady.
WOMAN 2: Mmm-hmm
EBOSHI: Everyday that we cut trees and dig for iron, the forest and it's creatures grow weaker. My way, there is no loss of life, Jigo.
JIGO: Listen, you owe me and I've come to collect. When you needed riflemen, I sent them and without those riflemen you lose Irontown. Oh, I'm sorry, did that sound like a threat?
EBOSHI: Don't tell me the Emperor believes that wives tale about the Great Spirit's head granting immortality.
JIGO: I'm sure I don't know what the Emperor believes. I'm just a humble monk. I'm just trying to get by.
I keep my promises.
Anyway, we have fought the boars before, they're much easier to kill than Moro and her wolf cubs. So you can call out that shady bunch you've got hidden under the cliff, Jigo.
JIGO: So, I've been found out. Oh, just one more thing, milady. Did a stranger come through here by any chance? He's a young an riding a great big red elk.
EBOSHI: Came, and went.
WOMAN: A bad looking bunch, if you ask me.
KOHROKU: Those men are no ordinary hunters. They're killers!
WOMAN 1: Milady, at least let some of us go with you.
WOMAN 2: Yes, you can't trust these men. They're strangers.
WOMAN 3: That's right!
WOMAN 4: What if something goes wrong and we're stuck here? We can't help you!
WOMAN 5: You said yourself we're better shots than the men are.
EBOSHI: That's precisely why I want you all here in Irontown. I can deal with forest gods, it's humans I'm worried about. Once the Forest Spirit is dead, we don't know what will happen. Will Jigo be satisfied with the creatures head? Or will he be after my ironworks as well? Jigo's riflemen may turn on us, and if that happens I'll need everyone of you here to fight them. Remember, you can't trust men.
GONZA: Don't worry about her ladyship. I'll be right at her side protecting her.
WOMAN 1: That's what we're afraid of.
WOMAN 5: Even if you were a woman, you'd still be an idiot.
You know you could always jump, boy.
As soon as your strength returns, the mark will spread and destroy you.
ASHITAKA: It feels like I must have been asleep for weeks. I had a dream that San was by my side, nursing me.
MORO: I was hoping you'd cry out in your sleep. Then I would of bitten your head off to silence you.
ASHITAKA: It's a beautiful forest. Are Okkoto and the boars on the move yet?
MORO: Yes. The boars are marching. The trees cry out as they die, but you can't hear them. I lie here. I listen to the pain of the forest and feel the ache of the bullet in my chest. And I dream of the day when I will finally crunch that gun woman's head in my jaws.
ASHITAKA: Moro, why can't the humans and the forest live together? Why can't we stop this fighting now?
MORO: The humans are gathering for the final battle. The flames of their guns will burn us all.
ASHITAKA: Then what happens to San? What's your plan? Let her die with you?
MORO: Typical, selfish. You think like a human. San is my daughter. She is of the Wolf Tribe. When the forest dies, so does she.
ASHITAKA: You must set her free! She's not a wolf, she's human!
MORO: Silence, boy! How dare you speak to a god like that! I caught her human parents defiling my forest. They threw their baby at my feet as they ran away. Instead of eating her, I raised her as my own. Now my poor, ugly, beautiful daughter is neither human nor wolf. How could you help?!
ASHITAKA: I don't know. But at least we might find a way to live.
MORO: How? Will you join forces with San and fight the humans?
ASHITAKA: No. All that would do is cause more hatred.
MORO: There is nothing you can do, boy. Soon the demon mark will spread and kill you. Now leave this place at sunrise. Return, and I shall kill you.
