What a Day in London
RATCLIFFE: Well done, Rolfe, bringing back a heathen as an example. Look at her.
She sticks out like a sore thumb.
JOHN ROLFE: Pocahontas is here as an emissary of her people. A personal guest of the king.
RATCLIFFE: The king has appointed me to lead an armada against the savages. Don't tell me you didn't know? The king wants his gold.
POCAHONTAS: There is no gold.
RATCLIFFE: Another barbarian lie. As soon as the ships are armed, I set sail to destroy the heathens and reclaim Jamestown for James.
POCAHONTAS: We must stop him! Warn your king of his lies!
JOHN ROLFE: But he wasn't lying. The parchment bore the king's seal.
Then your king's promise to meet me was the lie.
JOHN ROLFE: A king doesn't lie!
POCAHONTAS: They cannot both be true.
JOHN ROLFE: No. It's just a misunderstanding. It has to be. I can straighten this out. Come on. Are you riding or running?
JOHN ROLFE: Mrs. Jenkins!
MRS. JENKINS: Oh! oh! Oh! Gads me gracious, is that my Johnny? Euw! euw, Johnny, you need a bath. Oh, oh Johnny!
JOHN ROLFE: Look at you!
MRS. JENKINS: Oh you.
JOHN ROLFE: Mrs. Jenkins, I would like to introduce Pocahontas. Pocahontas, Mrs. Jenkins. The Jenkins have been with the Rolfes for generations. Careful, she's about to
put on some tea.
JOHN ROLFE: I'm off to see the king.
POCAHONTAS: I want to go with you.
JOHN ROLFE: Uh, Pocahontas, the conventions in England are very complex. I must go alone.
JOHN ROLFE: Now, I promise I will arrange for you to see the king. My word as a gentleman. Trust me.
POCAHONTAS: I must find a way to warn my people, to stop this.
MRS. JENKINS: Leave it to Johnny. He gave you his word as a gentleman, my dear. You can stake your life on that.
JOHN ROLFE: I didn't exactly bring the Indian chief...
KING JAMES: No, no, no I told you I would meet with the chief and no one less.
JOHN ROLFE: Sire, I gave their people your word you would meet. Are we not honour-bound.
RATCLIFFE: The King is bound to nothing when you cannot fulfil your mission. You were sent for the savage leader and yet you bring back a woman.
KING JAMES: A woman!
JOHN ROLFE: Your Highness, she is royalty... a princess. She's the daughter of a great chief who has traveled far from her homeland in the interest of peace. Meet with her Your Majesty.
RATCLIFFE: May I suggest she attend the hunt ball? Let her back to Virginia having witnessed the royal and majesty of English society.
JOHN ROLFE: Sire, she doesn't know our customs, to subject her to this kind of scruting would be
RATCLIFFE: I don't understand Rolfe. If she's not a savage, then why shouldn't she fit in?
KING JAMES: Excellent idea, Ratcliffe. Rolfe, you will bring her to the hunt ball. Prove to me she is as civilized as your claim, and I will stop my armada; if not, the armada sails.
JOHN ROLFE: But sire...
KING JAMES: It is decided!
MRS. JENKINS: How did it go?
JOHN ROLFE: A disaster! She's
invited to the hunt ball.
POCAHONTAS: I don't understand.
JOHN ROLFE: Oh, it's a trap!
Ratcliffe manipulated the King!
He's saying that if you're civilized you can fit right in, but it's the elite of British society etiquette and manners.
There's a million ways you can insult someone.
Believe, I know. And if you slip up, just once, Ratcliffe can convince the King that..
POCAHONTAS: Then I must not "slip up".
I can't learn your ways alone, but you can help me.
What must I do?
