Rapunzel (Tangled): ENFJ


Dominant Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: Rapunzel wants to please Mother Gothel and refrains from leaving her tower for her entire life in order to keep her happy. She spends her entire life doing what is expected of her and trying to be a good daughter. She is kind, warm, and genuine, and inspires others to open up and be vulnerable around her. She wants to be validated and doesn’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings or disappoint them (particularly Mother Gothel). Rapunzel is very good at tapping into other people’s feelings and empathizing with them. More than once, she gets out of a sticky situation by relating emotionally. She is able to get the men in the tavern to discuss their dreams, which keeps Flynn from being captured, and she is able to convince Maximus to wait before bringing Flynn in, which she does using flattery and by appealing to his softer side.

Auxiliary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: For her entire life, Rapunzel is fixated on the lights that appear on her birthday. They’re a sign and they were meant for her. She needs to go see them. This one goal drives her, and she singularly focused on turning the dream into a reality. This deep-seated drive is the only thing strong enough to make her defy Mother Gothel. Rapunzel doesn’t tend to take things as they are, instead preferring fantastical explanations. “Something brought you here, Flynn Ryder. Call it what you will, fate, destiny-“. Rapunzel has an “Aha!” moment after seeing the sun symbol, and realizes that she’s the lost princess. She doesn’t need to have it confirmed by anybody else, she knows it.

Tertiary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: When Rapunzel escapes her tower, she is enthralled by all of the sensory experiences the world has to offer. She is torn between her desire to run and play and do and her emotional meltdown over betraying Mother Gothel. To keep herself entertained throughout the day, Rapunzel paints, cooks, knits, cleans, plays guitar, dances, climbs, sketches, makes candles, and engages in other physical activities to occupy herself. Rapunzel is good at seeing potential in her environment, and often uses it to her advantage in her adventure with Flynn. Rapunzel gets a thrill out of experiencing the world outside of her tower. “Just smell the grass, the dirt. Just like I dreamed they’d be. Just feel that summer breeze. The way it’s calling me. For like the first time ever, I’m completely free. I could go running, and racing, and dancing… and chasing, and leaping and bounding. hair flying, heart pounding and splashing and reeling. And finally feeling, now’s when my life begins.”

Inferior Introverted Thinking [Ti]: Rapunzel is able to think creatively, which allows her to get herself out of trouble. She seeks to understand what the lanterns are. In addition to all of the sensory activities she enjoys, Rapunzel also likes solving puzzles and playing chess. She spends a lot of time analyzing her emotions, and has a difficult time detaching from them in her decisions.

Note: I completely get the ESFJ argument, and I actually struggled with this typing for quite some time. Many of the Si arguments I see have to do with Rapunzel repeating activities day in and day out and taking Mother Gothel’s word for what the outside world is like. However, I don’t think this is entirely fair, given her circumstances. Rapunzel is trapped, and Mother Gothel is the only other person she has contact with. If you were trapped in a room for your entire life, you’d probably keep yourself occupied with what was available to you, and trust the woman you thought was your mother. Rapunzel isn’t truly happy with her everyday routine, though. She does it to keep herself stimulated (Se), but the entire point of the song is in the title. She asks “When will my life begin?” because she’s dissatisfied with performing the same tasks day in and day out. I don’t think her obsession with the lanterns stems from Si, but from Ni. She feels a deep connection to them that she has no way of explaining. I don’t believe that her going back and forth about whether she’s doing the right thing once she leaves is indicative of low Ne. I think that’s just her Fe. Her only real qualm is how her actions will affect Mother Gothel. I totally understand the ESFJ argument, though, and regularly bounce back and forth between the two types, so if I change my mind in the future, I’ll re-type her. Also, I see her typed as an ENFP a lot but she’s so Fe.

Hercules (Hercules): ESFP


Dominant Extroverted Sensing [Se]: Hercules always wants to leap right into things and engage. However, he doesn’t have control over his strength, and typically ends up causing damage to his environment as a result of this desire. Hercules doesn’t hesitate to leap into new situations without taking the time to properly assess what he’s up against. He tends to act before thinking things through and doesn’t usually take the time to think about how the situations he gets himself into will unfold. He just wants to dive in and take action! “I am ready. I want to get off this island. I want to see battles and monsters. Rescue some damsels. You know, heroic stuff.” Hercules enjoys his status and the attention he receives once he begins to gain fame for his heroism.

Auxiliary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Figuring out where he belongs is very important to Hercules. He is very aware of his inability to “fit in” on Earth and wants to understand who he is and where he comes from in the hope that it might help him to discover where he’s meant to be in the world. While Hercules does care very deeply for others, he initially begins his heroics as a way to prove himself in order to become a God. He doesn’t do it to defend mortals. He just wants to earn his place on Mount Olympus to get to where he’s supposed to be. When he hears about the kids who were trapped, he’s excited about it, not concerned, because he sees his shot and he intends to take it. Hercules is often caught up in his own feelings and can fail to sense the emotions and true motives of those around him. He’s willing to make a deal with Hades that will keep Meg safe, but will result in many innocent people being hurt because he loves Meg.

Tertiary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: When Phil tells Hercules to “use his head,” Hercules takes this literally, and headbutts Nessus to deal with the problem. Hercules isn’t exactly a creative thinker, and tends to approach problems in the most direct and simple way possible. When he makes the decision to do whatever it takes to get back to Mount Olympus to be with his parents and all the other gods, Hercules is very pragmatic in his approach. He needs to do something heroic, and he does, on very large scales. He defends humanity and protects it, because that is the logical way to become a hero and earn his status as a god, but no matter how much good he does, he still isn’t granted permission to return to Mount Olympus. It isn’t until he is willing to sacrifice his own life in order to save Meg that he gets the hero’s welcome he had been dreaming of. It’s easier for Hercules to discuss his thoughts and plans aloud than it is for him to verbalize his feelings.

Inferior Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Hercules knows that he’s meant to be somewhere else… he just doesn’t know where or why he feels that way so strongly. He has a very specific vision (“Go the Distance” is an explosion of Fi and Ni)”. He can see the welcome he will receive and how the crowd will cheer, and is certain that if he can go the distance, he will have everything he’s ever hoped for. He doesn’t care how long it takes and is determined to see his quest through. While Hercules is able to picture a future where he is happy and content and believes he will get there, he has a hard time figuring out how and makes several mistakes along the way, often as a result of failing to envision how events might play out before jumping in.

Note: It was a very tough call between 3w2 and 2w3, but I think he leans slightly more 2 than 3.

Hades (Hercules): ENTP


Dominant Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Hades has very good intuition and is able to sense potential threats to his plans. After meeting Hercules as an infant, he immediately returns to the Underworld to ask the fates if he will “mess up my hostile takeover bid, or what?” Hades is a master manipulator and very good at knowing how to get what he needs from people. When Hercules tries to make a deal with Hades in order to rescue Meg, he hesitates before agreeing to let Hercules take Meg’s place, because he needs time to run through all of the ways the deal could backfire and blow up in his face. “Oh, well. The son of my hated rival trapped forever in the River of Death. Hmm… is there a downside to this?” He needs time to think of the possibilities. Is there some way this could backfire? Unfortunately for Hades, he’s so eager to finally get Hercules out of his way once and for all that he agrees, unable to foresee that this act of love and selflessness would reinstate Hercules as a full-fledged God.

Auxiliary Introverted Thinking [Ti]: Although he’s a formidable villain, Hades is often able to keep things “light” through his wit and sarcastic sense of humor. He doesn’t get hung up when his main approach doesn’t work. While Hades isn’t an extraordinary planner, he i able to improvise and adjust them as necessary – if one falls through, he just simply throws another curve ball at Hercules. He sees that physical challenges aren’t working in his quest to defeat Hercules, so he decides to rework his plans by attacking him emotionally instead (Ti-Fe). Hades is skilled at debating and he can be very convincing when trying to persuade people into making a deal with him, or getting them to do whatever he wants from them. Hades doesn’t let the facts of a situation throw him off. Yes, baby Hercules is a God and Gods are immortal… so how do you kill him? Well, you just turn him mortal first! Hades always believes he can solve any problem he faces. When he learns of Pain and Panic’s failure eighteen years later, he is still confident that he can prevent Hercules from thwarting his plans.

Tertiary Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: It’s easy for Hades to tap into other people’s emotions to get them to do what he wants. He knows how to manipulate the people around him and searches for emotional weaknesses to exploit. Hades has a very bad temper and difficulty controlling his emotions. When he loses his cool, he immediately tries to regain his composure. He’s usually pretty upfront about how he feels, though he sometimes attempts to put on an act if it’s in service of his primary objective. Hades uses Hercules’s feelings for Meg to strike a deal with him – Hercules cannot interfere with Hades’ plans by playing the hero, and in exchange, Meg will not be harmed. Hades prefers making deals, using flattery (as he did with Lachesis in order to get her to reveal the future), and persuasion as his tactics instead of conquering with brute force. He sees how people can be useful to him and uses that to form his strategies. Hades also plays on Meg’s pain in order to get her to continue helping him take down Hercules.

Inferior Introverted Sensing [Si]: Hades tries to learn from the past and creates theories based on what he’s previously observed (Ne-Si). ” See, he’s gotta have a weakness, because everybody’s got a weakness, I mean for Pandora, it was the box thing, for the Trojans, hey, they bet on the wrong horse, okay?” He tries to convince Meg that Hercules isn’t any different. He’s a guy! He will hurt you eventually! They all do! Although Pain and Panic lied to him, failed in their mission, and often make mistakes (not informing him when the Fates arrived), he continues to use them to carry out important missions, though it’s unclear if this is because he’s failed to learn from the past, or because he has a certain amount of sentimental attachment to them.

Flynn Rider/Eugene Fitzherbert (Tangled): ESTP


Dominant Extroverted Sensing [Se]: Flynn sees opportunities everywhere and doesn’t hesitate to act on them. He enjoys adventure and has no trouble taking risks that put him in dangerous situations. He’s a thief who doesn’t think twice about stealing the tiara of the lost princess from the palace. Flynn is quick, agile, and uses his keen awareness of his environment to evade capture. When he’s being pursued by the guards and comes across Rapunzel’s tower, he climbs it without hesitation to hide out there. He improvises in the moment and gives little thought to the potential consequences. Flynn sees things for exactly what they are without reading into them. When Rapunzel says, “Something brought you here, Flynn Ryder. Call it what you will, fate, destiny…” Flynn cuts her off simply by saying “A horse.” Flynn thinks quickly in the moment, using a nearby shard of a mirror to cut Rapunzel’s hair, thus defeating Mother Gothel.

Auxiliary Introverted Thinking [Ti]: If it makes logical sense to Flynn, he does it, regardless of who gets hurt in the process. His priority is to steal the tiara without getting arrested. As he’s being chased by the guards, he uses the Slabbington brothers to give him a boost, and leaves them behind to get caught. Flynn isn’t lacking in the wit department, and uses this both in his sense of humor, and in his various schemes. He’s a rational thinker and He’s able to come up with creative solutions to his problems on the fly without planning ahead (cutting Rapunzel’s hair).

Tertiary Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: When Rapunzel attempts to extort him into taking her to see the floating lights, he tries to play on her emotions to get her to change her mind and return home. He knows how to manipulate her, and plays on her fear and her guilt in order to get her to return to her tower. Flynn pretends to be encouraging her to rebel, but he’s really trying to make her feel even worse about leaving Mother Gothel by going on and on about how Rapunzel will be “breaking her heart.” When that doesn’t work, he decides to take Rapunzel to an establishment filled with customers who are a bit rough around the edges. Flynn cares about what others think of him and invents a false identity in order to appear more impressive than he actually is (“A fake reputation is all a man has.”)

Inferior Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Flynn wants to be rich and have adventures and his entire life has been in pursuit of these two desires. Although he knows that he wants to have a lot of money and visualizes himself living in a castle, he doesn’t exactly have a solid plan to get himself there. Instead, he just steals valuable objects in order to fund his dream, but quickly abandons his ambitions in favor of a “new dream” shortly after meeting Rapunzel.


Enneagram: 7w8 3w2 8w7 Sp/Sx


Jasmine (Aladdin): ESFP


Dominant Extroverted Sensing [Se]: The palace makes Jasmine feel trapped. She wants the freedom to see what else is out there, and so she hops over the wall and leaves her life behind, throwing herself into a world she knows nothing about. When Aladdin has to come to her aid after she takes an apple without paying to feed a small child, she’s able to adapt and play along when he tries to get her out of trouble by claiming that she’s crazy. Jasmine is able to improvise in the moment, even bowing to Abu and pretending to think that a camel was her doctor in order to really sell Aladdin’s lie. Jasmine picks up on how to do things quickly. When Aladdin takes Jasmine back to where he lives, he pole vaults from one building to another. He sets down a plank for her to walk across, but by the time he’s finished, she’s already flown over his head, claiming to be a “fast learner.” She thinks quickly on her feet and is able to distract Jafar by pretending his wish for her to fall in love with him came true, giving Aladdin time to sneak up behind him. Jasmine is open to adventure and new experiences, and is delighted by the opportunity to ride on a magic carpet where she can explore new places and see new things.

Auxiliary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Jasmine refuses to have decisions made for her. She wants freedom and the ability to make her own choices in life. If she gets married, she wants it to be for love. If the law is forcing her to wed, then the law is wrong. It bothers her that she’s never been able to do anything by herself. Jasmine wants to be independent and even attempts to run away in her desire to gains some autonomy. Once Jasmine finds out who Aladdin really is, she becomes outraged by how unfair it is that they can’t be together. She doesn’t want to sacrifice her heart’s desire and wants nothing more than to live her life on her own terms without interference from anybody. She wants to be treated like a person and doesn’t hesitate to put people in their place when they treat her like an object.

Tertiary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: Although it’s difficult for Jasmine to obey rules, she understands the established system and is quite good at barking orders and making demands. When the guards take Aladdin, she reveals herself and commands them to let him go. She doesn’t hesitate to use her status as the princess to get the men to release him, and is very firm with the guards, though they take Aladdin despite her efforts. Jasmine is direct, decisive, and bold. She is frank and speaks her mind, regardless of who she’s talking to. When she finds out that the guards were acting on Jafar’s orders, she marches straight up to him and reprimands him for his actions. Jasmine is unhappy with her life in the palace, so she leaves everything behind and escapes.

Inferior Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Because Jasmine acts without giving much thought to the future, she leaves the castle with nothing but the clothes on her back, not accounting for where she will go or what she will do, especially since she doesn’t have any money. Jasmine is good at picking up on people’s deceptions and has good gut instincts. She’s able to figure out that Prince Ali is actually Aladdin and plants a trap which forces Aladdin to admit that he’s the guy she met in the marketplace. When Jasmine releases the doves, it symbolically represents her own desire to fly away from her cage, the palace (Fi-Ni).

Quotes:

Prince Achmed: I’ve never been so insulted!
Sultan: Oh, Prince Achmed. You’re not leaving so soon, are you?
Prince Achmed: Good luck marrying her off!
Sultan: Oh, Jasmine! Jasmine! Jasmine! [The sultan goes off into the garden looking for his daughter. He finds her, but is interrupted by Rajah, Jasmine’s pet tiger, who blocks him off. Rajah has a piece of the prince’s undershorts in his mouth.The sultan grabs the cloth and yanks it out of Rajah’s mouth.] Confound it, Rajah! So, this is why Prince Achmed stormed out!
Jasmine: Oh, father. Rajah was just playing with him, weren’t you Rajah? You were just playing with that overdressed, self-absorbed Prince Achmed, weren’t you?
Sultan: Dearest, you’ve got to stop rejecting every suitor that comes to call. The law says you…
Both: …must be married to a prince.
[They walk over to a dove cage.]
Sultan: By your next birthday.
Jasmine: The law is wrong.
Sultan: You’ve only got three more days!
Jasmine: Father, I hate being forced into this. [She takes a dove out of the cage and pets it.] If I do marry, I want it to be for love.
Sultan: Jasmine, it’s not only this law. [She hands him the dove, and he puts it back in the cage.] I’m not going to be around forever, and I just want to make sure you’re taken care of, provided for.
Jasmine: Try to understand. I’ve never done a thing on my own. [She swirls her finger in the water of the pond, petting the fish.] I’ve never had any real friends. (Rajah looks up at her and growls.] Except you, Rajah. [Satisfied, he goes back to
sleep.]
I’ve never even been outside the palace walls.
Sultan: But Jasmine, you’re a princess.
Jasmine: Then maybe I don’t want to be a princess.
Sultan: Oooohhh! [to Rajah] Allah forbid you should have any daughters!

[As she’s climbing the palace walls]
Jasmine: Oh, I’m sorry, Rajah. But I can’t stay here and have my life lived for me.

[In the marketplace]
Jasmine: Oh, you must be hungry. [Jasmine takes an apple off one of the stands and gives it to the little boy] Here you go. [The boy runs off.]
Proprietor: You’d better be able to pay for that.
Jasmine: Pay?
Proprietor: No one steals from my cart!
Jasmine: Oh, I’m sorry, sir. I don’t have any money.
Proprietor: Thief!
Jasmine: Please, if you let me go to the palace, I can get some from the Sultan.
Proprietor: Do you know what the penalty is for stealing?
[He takes her hand and pins it down on the table, intending to chop it off]
Jasmine: No, no, please!
[The sword drops, but his hand is stopped by Aladdin]
Aladdin: Thank you, kind sir. I’m so glad you’ve found her. I’ve been looking all over for you.
Jasmine: [whispering] What are you doing?
Aladdin: Just play along.
Proprietor: You know this girl?
Aladdin: Sadly, yes. She is my sister. She’s a little crazy.
Proprietor: She said she knows the Sultan!
Aladdin: She thinks the monkey is the Sultan.
[Abu is picking a pocket. He hears this and straightens up. Jasmine, playing along, kneels down and bows to Abu]
Jasmine: Oh, wise Sultan. How may I serve you?
Abu: Well, blah blah blah blah.
Aladdin: Tragic, isn’t it? [He leans forward, picking up another apple from the cart with his foot] But, no harm done. [He walks over to Jasmine] Now come along, sis. Time to see the doctor.
Jasmine: [to a camel standing nearby] Oh, hello, Doctor. How are you?
Aladdin: No, no, no. Not that one.

Jasmine: I want to thank you for stopping that man.
Aladdin: Uh, forget it. [He grabs a pole] So, uh, this is your first time in the marketplace, huh? [He pole vaults to the next building, leaving Jasmine behind]
Jasmine: Is it that obvious?
Aladdin: Well, you do kinda stand out. I mean, uh, you don’t seem to know how dangerous Agrabah can be. [He lays a plank between the buildings for her to walk over, but as he is leaned down, she vaults over his head. He looks back in surprise. She tosses the pole to him.]
Jasmine: I’m a fast learner.
Aladdin: Right. C’mon, this way.

Jasmine: I want to thank you for stopping that man.
Aladdin: Uh, forget it. [He grabs a pole] So, uh, this is your first time in the marketplace, huh? [He pole vaults to the next building, leaving Jasmine behind]
Jasmine: Is it that obvious?
Aladdin: Well, you do kinda stand out. I mean, uh, you don’t seem to know how dangerous Agrabah can be. [He lays a plank between the buildings for her to walk over, but as he is leaned down, she vaults over his head. He looks back in surprise. She tosses the pole to him.]
Jasmine: I’m a fast learner.
Aladdin: Right. C’mon, this way.

Jasmine: Unhand him, by order of the princess.
[The guards suddenly stop and bow, forcing Aladdin to bow as well.]
Guard: Princess Jasmine.
Aladdin: The princess?
Abu: The princess?
Guard: What are you doing outside the palace? And with this street rat?
Jasmine: That’s not your concern. Do as I command. Release him!
Guard: Well, I would, princess, but my orders come from Jafar. You’ll have to take it up with him. [The guards drag Aladdin out, bowing as they go.]
Jasmine: [angrily] Believe me, I will.

Jasmine: The guards just took a boy from the market, on your orders.
Jafar: Your father’s charged me with keeping peace in Agrabah. The boy was a criminal.
Jasmine: What was his crime?
Iago: I can’t breathe, Jafar!
Jafar: Why, kidnapping the princess, of course.
Iago: If you could just- [Jafar kicks him back inside the door and it slams shut] Wow, that hurt!
Jasmine: He didn’t kidnap me! I ran away!
Jafar: [Walking away as if shocked] Oh, dear! Oh, how frightfully upsetting. Had I but known.
Jasmine: What do you mean?
Jafar: Sadly, the boy’s sentence has already been carried out.
Jasmine: What sentence?
Jafar: Death. [Jasmine gasps] By beheading.
Jasmine: No! [She collapses to the floor.]
Jafar: I am exceedingly sorry, princess.
Jasmine: How could you? [She runs from the room crying.]

Sultan: Jafar, this is an outrage. If it weren’t for all your years of loyal service… From now on, you are to discuss sentencing of prisoners with me, before they are beheaded.
Jafar: I assure you, your highness, it won’t happen again.
Sultan:Jasmine, Jafar, now let’s put this whole messy business behind us. Please?
Jafar: My most abject and humblest apologies to you as well, princess. [He takes her hand to kiss it, but she yanks it away.]
Jasmine: At least some good will come of my being forced to marry. When I am queen, I will have the power to get rid of you.

Sultan: Jasmine will like this one!
Aladdin: And I’m pretty sure I’ll like Princess Jasmine!
Jafar: Your highness, no. I must intercede on Jasmine’s behalf. [Jasmine hears this and gets mad.] This boy is no different than the others. What makes him think he is worthy of the princess?
Aladdin: Your majesty, I am Prince Ali Ababwa! [He pricks Jafar’s goatee, which springs out in all directions.] Just let her meet me. I will win your daughter!
Jasmine: How dare you! All of you, standing around deciding my future? I am not a prize to be won! [She storms out.]

Jasmine: A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I’m way up here
It’s crystal clear
That now I’m in a whole new world with you!

Jasmine: Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

Jasmine: A whole new world!
Aladdin: Don’t you dare close your eyes
Jasmine: An hundred thousand things to see
Aladdin: Hold your breath- it gets better!
Jasmine: I’m like a shooting star,
I’ve come so far
I can’t go back to where I used to be!

Jasmine: It’s all so magical.
Aladdin: Yeah.
Jasmine: It’s a shame Abu had to miss this.
Aladdin: Nah. He hates fireworks. He doesn’t really like flying either. That is… oh no!
Jasmine: [She pulls off his turban] You are the boy from the market! I knew it. Why did you lie to me?
Aladdin: Jasmine, I’m sorry.
Jasmine: Did you think I was stupid?
Aladdin: No!
Jasmine: That I wouldn’t figure it out?
Aladdin: No. I mean, I hoped you wouldn’t. No, that’s not what I meant.
Jasmine: Who are you? Tell me the truth!
Aladdin: The truth? The truth… the truth is… I sometimes dress as a commoner to escape the pressures of palace life. But I really am a prince!
Jasmine: Why didn’t you just tell me?
Aladdin: Well, you know, um… royalty going out into the city in disguise, it sounds a little strange, don’t you think?
Jasmine: Not that strange.

Jafar: It pains me to see you reduced to this, Jasmine. [He takes a bite out of the apple she is holding.] A beautiful desert bloom such as yourself should be on the arm of the most powerful man in the world. [He waves his finger and a crown appears.] What do you say, my dear? Why, with you as my queen…
[She picks up a glass of wine and throws it in his face.]
Jasmine: Never!
Jafar: I’ll teach you some respect! [She falls back as he raises his hand to slap her. Then he stops.] No, Genie, I have decided to make my final wish. I wish for Princess Jasmine to fall desperately in love with me.
GENIE: Ah, master- there are a few addendas, some quid pro quo-
Jafar: Don’t talk back to me, you stupid blue lout! You will do what I order you to do, slave!
[Jasmine looks up and sees Aladdin in the window, who makes a “Shh” motion.]
Jasmine: [Thinks for a moment, then stands and puts the crown on her head.] Jafar! I never realized how incredibly handsome you are.
[The Genie’s jaw drops.]
Jafar: That’s better. [He pulls the Genie’s jaw up like a shade.] Now, pussycat, tell me more about… myself.
Jasmine: You’re tall, well dressed…

Jafar: Go on.
Jasmine: And your beard…is so…twisted! [She has her arms around him. She pretends to twist with her finger, but she is actually motioning for Aladdin to come over. He makes his move. Iago sees him.]
Iago: Jaf–mmmmmm! [Abu grabs him and covers his mouth.]
Jafar: And the street rat?
Jasmine: What street rat? [They are about to kiss when Iago manages to knock over a bowl. Jafar turns to look, but Jasmine grabs him back and kisses him. Aladdin looks disgusted. Iago and Abu both look disgusted.]

Fa Mulan (Mulan): ISTP


Dominant Introverted Thinking [Ti]: When Mulan decides on the best solution to a problem, she just goes for it without stopping to discuss it with anyone. She analyzes her obstacles and thinks around the facts. She doesn’t need to have a conversation about it. Instead, she just isolates what her best move is and does it. She realizes that her father is in no condition to go off to war. He’ll die if he goes. So, she chops off her hair, takes his sword, and sneaks off in the middle of the night to fight in his place. She thinks quickly and creatively in stressful situations without losing her cool. Mulan is intelligent and good at defeating her enemies using her brain rather than brawn. While everyone else is fighting in expected ways, Mulan comes up with an innovative method of dealing with her opponents. She takes into account that they are outnumbered and decides to uses Mushu to light the cannon fuse. Instead of aiming at the oncoming men, she uses the cannon to cause an avalanche instead. She also sees that their way of trying to save the Emperor will take too long, so she comes up with the idea of dressing the men up as women and having them use sashes to climb the pillars. Later, she thinks fast on her feet again, pretending to be out of weapons, pulls out her fan, which Shan Yu pierces with his sword, but Mulan turns the tables on him and uses it to disarm him.

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: Taking risks doesn’t frighten Mulan. She charges into war with no combat experience whatsoever and doesn’t spend much time worrying about the potential consequences if her true identity is discovered. Despite Mushu’s warnings, Mulan bathes out in the open where any of the men could walk by and see her. She takes the chance of getting caught and ruining everything because she doesn’t want to smell bad. Mulan is great at improvising in the moment and taking action. She’s extremely resourceful, which she proved by combining her awareness of her surroundings with quick thinking, allowing her to come up with the idea of causing the avalanche to defeat the Huns. She makes bold moves during battle, and though it takes her some time to fully hone her skills, she learns to become aware of her environment and becomes adept at using whatever is available to her advantage.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: If Mulan really wants to commit to something, she doesn’t let anything stop her. She impersonates a man to fight in the war in her father’s place and she works hard to transform into a warrior. She’s able to save China due to her dedication and perseverance. When she has a goal in mind, she doesn’t stop until she achieves it, whether it’s stopping the Hun army or saving the Emperor’s life. Mulan can fail to account for how future events may unfold, which causes her to be somewhat careless. She becomes fiercely determined to climb the pillar and continues trying long after everyone else had left, not stopping until she ultimately prevails.

Inferior Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: Mulan wants to fit in and embody everything that her family expects of her, but she struggles between what she wants for herself and what her family wants her to be. Mulan puts aside who she really is and what she wants in order to please the people around her. Not being able to live up to what people expect from her is upsetting because she wants her family to be proud of her. Mulan deals with an internal conflict because while she hates the thought of disappointing her loved ones, it’s also hard for her to blend in and be like all of the other girls.

Note: I considered inferior Te, inferior Si, and inferior Fe for Mulan. She has a hard time navigating established rules and systems and functioning within them (inferior Te). It’s also difficult for her to follow traditions and remember the information she acquires, as she has to cheat by writing the correct responses for the matchmaker on her arm (inferior Si). However, for her to have inferior Si, she would need dominant Ne, which isn’t there. And she exhibits too much Fe/Ti for me to consider her using Te/Fi at all. Some people believe that the song Reflection indicates Fi, but I feel that it actually screams inferior Fe. She doesn’t want to dishonor her family, and even though she’s trying to play the part of the girl they want her to be in order to make them proud, she feels that she falls short. She is willing to be someone other than who she is if it makes them happy, it’s just that she can’t seem to actually do so despite her efforts.

Quotes:

Mulan: [Using chopsticks to balance a grain of rice]
Quiet and demure … graceful, polite, delicate, refined, poised…
[she picks up a paintbrush and makes a mark on her arm] punctual!

Fa Zu: Mulan. You should already be in town. We’re counting on you to-
Mulan: Uphold the family honor. Don’t worry, Father. I won’t let you down. Wish me luck!

Mulan: Ancestors, hear my plea,
Please don’t let me make a fool of me
And to not uproot my family tree
Keep my father standing tall.

Matchmaker: You are a disagrace! You may look like a bride, but you will never bring your family honor!

Mulan: Look at me … I will never pass for a perfect bride
Or a perfect daughter
Can it be?
I’m not meant to play this part?
Now I see
That if I were truly to be myself
I would break my family’s heart.
Who is that girl I see
Staring straight back at me
Why is my reflection someone I don’t know
Somehow I cannot hide
Who I am, though I’ve tried
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?
When will my reflection show
Who I am, inside?

Mushu: Hey, this is not a good idea. What if somebody sees you?
Mulan: Just because I look like a man doesn’t mean I have to smell like one.
Mushu: So a couple guys don’t rinse out their socks. Picky, picky, picky. Myself, I kinda like that corn-chip smell.
Mulan: [Jumps in the water] Ah.
Mushu: Okay, all right, alright, that’s enough, now c’mon, get out before you get all pruney and stuff.
Mulan: Mushu, if you’re so worried, go stand watch!
Mushu: Yeah, yeah. Stand watch, Mushu, while I blow our secret with my stupid girly habits. Hygiene.

Mulan: How ’bout a girl who’s got a brain, who always speaks her mind?

Shang: Ping! Ping, come back!
[Frantically, as Shan Yu draws nearer, his sword raised, Mulan fumbles with the match]
Mushu: Okay, you might want to light that right about now, Quickly, quickly! [Mulan is attacked by Shan Yu’s hawk and loses the match.]
Yao: C’mon, we gotta help! [The Gang of Three run toward Mulan, swinging their swords. Mulan uses Mushu to light the cannon fuse, and it shoots off toward the overhang]
Mushu: You missed! How could you miss?! He was three feet in front of you! [The cannon hits the overhang with a bang, and causes an avalanche that rains down on the Hun Army, burying in them. In fury, Shan Yu roars and hits Mulan in the side with his sword blade. She quickly runs away from the avalanche, pulling Shang with her. Khan runs toward them, and Mulan gets on and tries to give Shang a hand, but he loses his grip and is dragged into the snow.]
Mushu: [riding down the snow in a hubcap] Mulan! Mulan! Mulan? [He pulls a Hun’s head out of the snow.] Nope. Mulan! [He reaches down and pulls out Crickee.] Man, you are one lucky bug.
[Mulan and Khan break out of the snow and race toward Shang, who, unconscious, is sliding on the snow toward a cliff.]
Mulan: Shang! [She pulls him up onto the saddle.]

Shang: Ping! What’s wrong? [Mulan moves her hands to reveal blood.] He’s wounded! Get help! [Mulan sinks into unconsciousness.] Ping, hold on. Hold on.
[The doctor emerges from his tent and says something to Shang, who looks disturbed and rushes inside. He looks at Mulan, who sits up in bed, her side bandaged. Shang stares at her, recognizing her as a girl. Mulan realizes her mistake and pulls the blanket back on.]
Mulan: I can explain!
Chi Fu: So it’s true!
Mulan: Shang!
Chi Fu: [yanking Mulan out of the tent and pulling her hair out of a bun] I knew there was something wrong with you! A woman! Treacherous snake!
Mulan: My name is Mulan. I did it to save my father!
Chi Fu: High treason!
Mulan: I didn’t mean for it to go this far!
Chi Fu: Ultimate dishonor!
Mulan: It was the only way! Please, believe me!

Mulan: I should never have left home.
Mushu: Hey C’mon. You wanted to save your father’s life. Who knew you’d end up shaming him, disgracing your ancestors and losing all your friends. Y’know, you just gotta… just gotta learn to let these things go.
Mulan: Maybe I didn’t go for my father. Maybe what I really wanted was to prove that I could do things right. So that when I looked in the mirror [she picks up her helmet] I’d see someone worthwhile. But I was wrong. I see nothing.
Mushu: Hey, that’s just cause this needs a little spit, that’s all. [He spits on the helmet.] Let me shine this up for you. I can see you, lookit you, you look so pretty! The truth is, we’re both frauds. Your ancestors didn’t send me; they don’t even like me. I mean, you risked your life to help people you love. I risked your life to help myself. At least you had good intentions.
[Crickee starts to cry]
Mushu: What do you mean, you’re not lucky! You… lied to me? [Crickee nods. Mushu turns to Khan.] And what are you, a sheep?
Mulan: I’ll have to face my father sooner or later. Let’s go home
Mushu: Yeah. This ain’t gonna be pretty. But don’t you worry, okay? Things will work out. We started this thing together and that’s how we’ll finish it. I promise.
[The shadow of a hawk flies overheard, and around a bend. Shan Yu climb out of the snow and looks around. He lets out a roar. Soon he is joined by five of his soldiers. They start down the path toward the Imperial City. Mulan watches them, grabs her sword, mounts Khan and turns after the Huns.]
Mushu: Uh, home is that way.
Mulan: I have to do something.
Mushu: Did you see those Huns? They popped out of the snow! LIKE DAISIES!
Mulan: Are we in this together, or not?
Mushu: [looks guilty] Let’s go kick some Hun-ny Bunch! [He and Crickee jump on Khan, and they ride down the mountain, whooping.]

Mulan: They’ll never reach the Emperor in time. [She looks around, then at the tall pillars by the side of the palace. She whistles to them.] Hey guys! I’ve got an idea! [The Gang of Three looks at each other and then follows Mulan, dropping the statue. They all take off their equipment, and put on dresses and makeup, and they use the silk belts around their waists to climb up the pillars. Next to them, Shang takes off his cape and climbs up. Inside the palace, on a balcony, the Huns hold the Emperor. Shan Yu sticks his head in their faces.]

Shan Yu: No! [He turns to Shang, who is now conscious.] You! You took away my victory! [He is hit by a shoe.]
Mulan: No! I did. [She pulls back her hair.]
Shan Yu: The soldier from the mountain! [Abandoning Shang, he chases after Mulan, who is putting on her shoe. She slams the door shut, and he rams his fist through the wood. Mulan is joined by Mushu and Crickee, riding the feather-less hawk.]
Mushu: So what’s the plan?
Mulan: Ummmmm…
Mushu: YOU DON’T HAVE A PLAN?
Mulan: Hey, I’m making this up as I… go … [as they pass a window she notices a pile of fireworks and two men.] Mushu–
Mushu: Way ahead of you, sister! C’mon, Crickee! [They jump onto a paper kite decoration and float across to the tower. Shan Yu attacks Mulan, and she shimmies up a pole. Shan Yu cuts down the pole, and Mulan and the pole go through the wall. Mulan jumps up and grabs onto the roof and pulls herself up. She looks across to where Mushu and Crickee are gathering ammunition.]

Man: Look! On the roof!
[Mulan backs along the roof, mesuring the distance with her hands. Shan Yu crashes through the roof and raises his sword. Mulan pulls out a paper fan.]
Shan Yu: Guess you’re out of ideas. [He stabs the sword through the fan; Mulan turns it around and readies the sword.]
Mulan: Not quite. Ready, Mushu?
Mushu: [with a rocket strapped to his back] I am ready, baby! [He breaths fire on a stick and hands it to Crickee.] Light me!
[Mulan kicks Shan Yu in the face, then trips him and pins his shirt to the ground with the sword. Crickee lights the fuse, and the rocket slams Shan Yu straight into the firework tower.]
Mulan: [picking up Mushu] Get off the roof, get off the roof! [As the fireworks explode, she jumps, catches a lantern and swings down the cord, then drops onto Shang, who is running down the stairs. Shan Yu’s sword and Mushu land nearby.]

Aladdin (ESTP): Aladdin


Dominant Extroverted Sensing [Se]: Navigating his physical environment is a piece of cake for Aladdin. He’s aware of his surroundings and uses them to escape the guards who are after him. Aladdin is able to jump out of buildings and land on two pieces of rope, which he skis down. He uses a sheet he finds to disguise himself. He even catches his fallen loaf of bread without looking. When guards are coming at him from both sides, he jumps up, causing them to all crash into each other. He manages to use a carpet he finds as a parachute to jump out of a window and escape once and for all. Aladdin always remains ahead of his adversaries and is great at improvising in the moment. He successfully dodges every obstacle in his environment and uses what’s available to him to sabotage the guards who pursue him. Aladdin readily takes risks, whether it’s jumping off buildings, pole vaulting across them, or facing Jafar with no plan whatsoever. He appreciates the beauty and wonder in the world and seeing what it has to offer. He enjoys experiencing all that’s out there, and wants to show it all to Jasmine.

Auxiliary Introverted Thinking [Ti]: Aladdin is skilled when it comes to hatching plans on the fly. If one scheme doesn’t work, he simply tries something else. He’s a fast thinker and can usually spot the best solution to a problem with ease. Aladdin often utilizes his quick mind in his sense of humor. He’s able to trick the Genie into helping him without actually using a wish. When he notices that Jasmine has been caught stealing, he immediately jumps in to help by making up a story about her being his “crazy” sister to keep her from getting in trouble. Aladdin is able to deduce that Jafar is hypnotizing the sultan with his cobra staff, and he leaps into action (Se) by breaking it, thereby putting an end to Jafar’s control over him. Aladdin’s logic is internal and he has his own ideas about what’s rational. Aladdin also has a knack for finding loopholes and ways around the rules. He can’t wish for love, but he can wish to become a prince so he can marry the princess!

Tertiary Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: Although he survives by stealing food, he only does it because he needs to eat to live. Aladdin cares very much about other people, and makes sacrifices for others – even perfect strangers. After everything he went through to steal it and to evade the guards afterwards, Aladdin notices two children digging through the trash for food, and decides to give his half of the loaf to them. When he notices one of Princess Jasmine’s potential suitors getting ready to whip the same kids, Aladdin steps in and stands up for them. He’s good at understanding other people and uses his insights to get what he wants (manipulating Jafar into using his final wish to become a genie). Aladdin cares about what other people think of him and it bothers him that other people only view him as a “street rat.” When trying to make a decision, Aladdin wants to hear other people’s opinions. Genie, what would you wish for? Aladdin often struggles with morality. He thinks he needs to be someone else to win the heart of the princess, and often chooses to lie instead of just being himself. He nearly goes back on his promise to free the Genie because without the Genie, he’s just Aladdin.

Inferior Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Considering the consequences of his actions isn’t Aladdin’s strong suit. Aladdin continues to lie, even though doing so gets him into trouble. He also steals, knowing that the guards will chase and try to capture him. Aladdin believes that one day, things will change for him. He visualizes himself becoming rich, living in the palace, and never having any problems in his life – though he doesn’t actually have a plan to make that happen. He just believes it will become a reality.

Quotes:

Aladdin: Gotta keep…one jump ahead of the breadline
One swing ahead of the sword
I steal only what I can’t afford
That’s everything!

Aladdin: Gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat
Tell you all about it when I got the time!

Aladdin: One jump ahead of the slowpokes
One skip ahead of my doom
Next time gonna use a nom de plume.
One jump ahead of the hitmen
One hit ahead of the flock
I think I’ll take a stroll around the block.

Aladdin: One jump ahead of the hoofbeats!
One hop ahead of the hump!
One trick ahead of disaster
They’re quick, but I’m much faster

Aladdin: Here goes, better throw my hand in
Wish me happy landin’
All I gotta do is jump!

Aladdin: Riffraff, street rat.
I don’t buy that.
If only they’d look closer
Would they see a poor boy? No siree.
They’d find out, there’s so much more to me.

Aladdin: Someday, Abu, things are gonna change. We’ll be rich, live in a palace, and never have any problems at all.

Proprietor: You’d better be able to pay for that.
Jasmine: Pay?
Proprietor: No one steals from my cart!
Jasmine: Oh, I’m sorry, sir. I don’t have any money.
Proprietor: Thief!
Jasmine: Please, if you let me go to the palace, I can get some from the Sultan.
Proprietor: Do you know what the penalty is for stealing?
[He takes her hand and pins it down on the table, intending to chop it off]
Jasmine: No, no, please!
[The sword drops, but his hand is stopped by Aladdin]
Aladdin: Thank you, kind sir. I’m so glad you’ve found her. I’ve been looking all over for you.
Jasmine: [whispering] What are you doing?
Aladdin: Just play along.
Proprietor: You know this girl?
Aladdin: Sadly, yes. She is my sister. She’s a little crazy.
Proprietor: She said she knows the Sultan!
Aladdin: She thinks the monkey is the Sultan.
[Abu is picking a pocket. He hears this and straightens up. Jasmine, playing along, kneels down and bows to Abu]
Jasmine: Oh, wise Sultan. How may I serve you?
Abu: Well, blah blah blah blah.
Aladdin: Tragic, isn’t it? [He leans forward, picking up another apple from the cart with his foot] But, no harm done. [He walks over to Jasmine] Now come along, sis. Time to see the doctor.
Jasmine: [to a camel standing nearby] Oh, hello, Doctor. How are you?
Aladdin: No, no, no. Not that one.

Jasmine: I want to thank you for stopping that man.
Aladdin: Uh, forget it. [He grabs a pole] So, uh, this is your first time in the marketplace, huh? [He pole vaults to the next building, leaving Jasmine behind]
Jasmine: Is it that obvious?
Aladdin: Well, you do kinda stand out. I mean, uh, you don’t seem to know how dangerous Agrabah can be. [He lays a plank between the buildings for her to walk over, but as he is leaned down, she vaults over his head. He looks back in surprise. She tosses the pole to him.]
Jasmine: I’m a fast learner.
Aladdin: Right. C’mon, this way.

Aladdin: Ah, provisos? You mean limitations? On wishes? Some all powerful genie – can’t even bring people back from the dead. I don’t know, Abu – he probably can’t even get us out of this cave. Looks like we’re gonna have to find a way out of here-
[They start to leave, but a big blue foot stomps down in front of them]
Genie: Excuse me? Are you lookin’ at me? Did you rub my lamp? Did you wake me up, did you bring me here? And all of a sudden, you’re walkin’ out on me? I don’t think so, not right now. You’re gettin’ your wishes, so siddown!

Genie: Thank you for choosing Magic Carpent for all your travel needs. Don’t stand until the rug has come to a complete stop. Thank you. Good bye, good bye! Thank you! Good bye! Well, now. How about that, Mr. doubting Mustafa?
Aladdin: Oh, you sure showed me. Now about my three wishes-
Genie: Dost mine ears deceive me? Three? You are down by ONE, boy!
Aladdin: Ah, no – I never actually wished to get out of the cave. You did that on your own.
Genie: Well don’t I just feel sheepish? All right, you baaaad boy, but no more freebies.
Aladdin: Fair deal. So, three wishes. I want them to be good. What would you wish for?
Genie: Me? No one’s ever asked me that before. Well, in my case, ah forget it.
Aladdin: What? No, tell me.
Genie: Freedom.
Aladdin: You’re a prisoner?
Genie: It’s all part-and-parcel, the whole genie gig. Phenomenal cosmic powers! Itty bitty living space.
Aladdin: Genie, that’s terrible.
Genie: But, oh – to be free. Not have to go “Poof! What do you need? Poof! What do you need? Poof! What do you need? To be my own master, such a thing would be greater than all the magic and all the treasures in all the world! But what am I talking about, here? Let’s get real here. It’s not gonna happen. Genie, wake up and smell the hummus.
Aladdin: Why not?
Genie: Theo only way I get outta this is if my master wishes me out. So you can guess how often that’s happened.
Aladdin: I’ll do it. I’ll set you free.
Genie: [Head turns into Pinocchio’s with a long nose] Uh-huh, right. Whoop!
Aladdin: No, really. I promise. [He pushes the nose back in and Genie’s head returns to normal] After I make my first two wishes, I’ll use my third wish to set you free. [He holds out his hand]
Genie: Well, here’s hopin’. [Shakes Aladdin’s hand] Okay! Let’s make some magic! [Turns into a magician.] So how ’bout it. What is it you want most?
Aladdin: Well, there’s this girl–
Genie: Eehhh! [Like a buzzer, and Genie’s chest shows a heart with a cross through it.] Wrong! I can’t make anybody fall in love, remember?
Aladdin: Oh, but Genie. She’s smart and fun and…
Genie: Pretty?
Aladdin: Beautiful. She’s got these eyes that just… and this hair, wow… and her smile.
Genie: [Sitting in a Parisian cafe with Abu and Carpet.] Ami. C’est l’amour.
Aladdin: But she’s the princess. To even have a chance, I’d have to be a – hey, can you make me a prince?

Genie: Tell her the… TRUTH!!!
Aladdin: No way! If Jasmine found out I was really some crummy street rat… she’d laugh at me.
Genie: A woman appreciates a man who can make her laugh! Al, all joking aside, you really oughtta be yourself.
Aladdin: Hey, that’s the last thing I want to be. Okay, I’m gonna go see her. I gotta be smooth, cool, confident. How do I look?
Genie: Like a prince.

Aladdin: I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide!

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming

Jasmine: A whole new world!
Aladdin: Don’t you dare close your eyes
Jasmine: An hundred thousand things to see
Aladdin: Hold your breath–it gets better!
Jasmine: I’m like a shooting star,
I’ve come so far
I can’t go back to where I used to be!

Aladdin: A whole new world!
Jasmine: Every turn a surprise
Aladdin: With new horizons to pursue
Jasmine: Every moment, red-letter

Aladdin: A thrilling chase
Jasmine: A wondrous place
Both: For you and me!

Jasmine: You are the boy from the market! I knew it. Why did you lie to me?
Aladdin: Jasmine, I’m sorry.
Jasmine: Did you think I was stupid?
Aladdin: No!
Jasmine: That I wouldn’t figure it out?
Aladdin: No. I mean, I hoped you wouldn’t. No, that’s not what I meant.
Jasmine: Who are you? Tell me the truth!
Aladdin: The truth? The truth… the truth is… I sometimes dress as a commoner to escape the pressures of palace life. But I really am a prince!
Jasmine: Why didn’t you just tell me?
Aladdin: Well, you know, um… royalty going out into the city in disguise, it sounds a little strange, don’t you think?
Jasmine: Not that strange.

Aladdin: Tell them the truth, Jafar! You tried to have me killed.
Jafar: What? Ridiculous nonsense, your highness. He is obviously lying. [He brings the staff close to the Sultan’s face.]
Sultan: Obviously… lying.
[Aladdin sees the staff with its glowing eyes.]
Jasmine: Father, what’s wrong with you?
Aladdin: I know what’s wrong!
[Aladdin grabs the staff and smashes it on the floor. Jafar flinches and the spell is broken for good.]
Sultan: Oh, oh, oh my!
Aladdin: Your highness, Jafar’s been controlling you with this!

Genie: Huzzah! Hail the conquering hero! [Turns into a one-man band. He sees Aladdin walk away with his head hung. He stops, scratches his head, comes up with an idea, then zooms over to Aladdin. He holds up his hands like a director scoping a picture and we look through them.] Aladdin, you’ve just won
the heart of the princess. What are you gonna do next? [Aladdin looks at him, then walks away in sadness to the bed, where he falls on it and sighs. Genie again is confused, then goes to him and pulls out a script labeled “Aladdin.”] Psst, your line is “I’m going to free the genie.” Anytime.
Aladdin: Genie… I can’t.
Genie: Sure you can. You just go “Genie, I wish you free.” [He grabs Aladdin’s head and uses him as a mock ventriloquist’s dummy. Aladdin pulls away.]
Aladdin: I’m serious. Look, I’m sorry – I really am. But they want to make me sultan – no! They want to make Prince Ali sultan. Without you, I’m just Aladdin.
Genie: Al, you won!
Aladdin: Because of you! The only reason anyone thinks I’m anything is because of you. What if they find out I’m not really a prince? What if Jasmine finds out? I’ll lose her. Genie, I can’t keep this up on my own. I can’t wish you free.
Genie: Hey, I understand. After all, you’ve lied to everyone else. Hey, I was beginning to feel left out. Now, if you’ll excuse me, master.

Genie: Al, I can’t help you – I work for senor psychopath now.
Aladdin: Hey, I’m a street rat, remember? I’ll improvise.

Jafar: Without the genie, boy, you’re nothing!
Aladdin: The genie! The genie! The genie has more power than you’ll ever have!
Jafar: What!
Aladdin: He gave you your power, he can take it away!
Genie: Al, what are you doing? Why are you bringing me into this?
Aladdin: Face it, Jafar – you’re still just second best!
Jafar: You’re right! His power does exceed my own! But not for long!
Genie: The boy is crazy. He’s a little punch drunk. One too many hits with the snake.
Jafar: Slave, I make my third wish! I wish to be an all powerful genie!
Genie: [reluctantly] All right, your wish is my command. Way to go, Al.

Jafar: Yes! Yes! The power! The absolute power!
Jasmine: What have you done?
Aladdin: Trust me!
[A black lamp appears at Jafar’s base. Jafar is busy conjuring.]
Jafar: The universe is mine to command, to control!
Aladdin: Not so fast, Jafar! Aren’t you forgetting something?
[Jafar looks down questioningly] You wanted to be a genie, you got it! And everything that goes with it! [Shackles appear on Jafar’s wrists.]
Jafar: No! No!
Iago: I’m gettin’ out of here! Come on, you’re the genie, I don’t want-
[Iago tries to fly away, but is sucked in with Jafar.]
Aladdin: Phenomenal cosmic powers! Itty bitty living space.
Genie: Al, you little genius, you!

Jafar (Aladdin): INTJ


Dominant Introverted Intuition [Ni]: It’s Jafar’s greatest ambition to usurp the Sultan, and he’ll do whatever it takes to make that dream a reality. He wants Agrabah to bow to him and is extraordinarily patient in his quest. Everything Jafar does is a carefully thought out piece of his overall plan of ruling the kingdom. He spends years searching for the Cave of Wonders. When he finally finds it, he sends a man in to retrieve the lamp, which is all part of his long-term vision of using the Genie to make himself all-powerful. However, when he realizes he can’t just send anyone into the cave, he remains patient until he can identify the “diamond in the rough.” He’s certain that he will get what he wants eventually and doesn’t get worked up when he faces obstacles (unlike Iago). Jafar is able to manipulate the Sultan (even when he’s not using his cobra staff to hypnotize him) and typically knows exactly what to do and say to get what he wants from him. Jafar instinctively doesn’t trust “Prince Ali” and is very skeptical about him and proves himself correct when he catches a glimpse of the lamp, allowing him to deduce that he’s actually Aladdin.

Auxiliary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: Jafar is all about seizing power and being in control. No matter how much he has, it’s never enough for him. Jafar doesn’t hesitate to take action and will do whatever he has to in order to overtake the kingdom. He doesn’t care who he has to hurt to get the lamp and gladly sacrifices whoever he has to in his quest for power. Jafar can sometimes struggle to see beyond the facts of the situation. Jasmine will have to marry a prince, and once that happens, she’ll get rid of him. It doesn’t occur to him to change the rules so that Jasmine must marry him, allowing Jafar to become sultan – that idea comes from Iago. Jafar is strategic about accomplishing his goals. Once he discovers that Aladdin is his diamond in the rough, he has him arrested in order to use him to get the lamp.

Tertiary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: The only feelings of any value to Jafar are his own. He holds everyone around him in contempt and believes himself to be superior. Jafar doesn’t discuss his personal feelings and appears to completely lack empathy. Jafar only bothers with those who can help him achieve his goals. He knows what he values (power, authority, control), and he won’t allow anything to distract him from his mission to take over the kingdom. Once he gets everything he’s ever wanted, he uses his power to control the people around him to show them who’s boss now.

Inferior Extroverted Sensing [Se]: Once Jafar finally gets a taste of the absolute power he’s always craved, he begins to act recklessly in the moment. He wants to enjoy all of the pleasures that come along with the status he worked so hard for. Although his original plan was to kill Jasmine, he changes his mind and even gives into his lustful urges by attempting to use his last wish to get her to fall in love with him. When he gives in to it, he forgets to think ahead, allowing himself to be tricked into becoming a prisoner of the lamp. His desire for authority leads him to act on impulse, which leaves him susceptible to manipulation. Both Jasmine and Aladdin are able to pick up on this and use it to their advantage to defeat him.

Note: I’m sure that some people will think I’m stereotyping. I know of some people who argue that Jafar can’t be an INTJ because of how impulsive he became once he got the lamp. I think that was just a grip experience, though. Jafar spent a very long time singularly focused on just one goal and didn’t stop until he made it a reality. Then, when the moment came and he finally got everything he ever wanted, he reveled in it, which led to his downfall. Giving in to the urges of the moment at the very end doesn’t discount everything leading up to it. Someone with higher Se would probably have a much better handle on it than Jafar does. My aunt was the only INTJ I’ve ever known in my life, and when she was in the grip of Se, it was not a pretty picture.

Note: (He shows a lot of 3 and 8, so deciding his main type was difficult and I’m not 100% confident about which actually takes precedence)


Quotes:

Jafar: At last, after all my years of searching, the cave of wonders!
Iago: Awk! Cave of wonders!
Gazeem: By Allah!
Jafar: Now, remember! Bring me the lamp. The rest of the treasure is yours, but the lamp is mine!

Iago: I can’t believe it. I just don’t believe it. We’re never gonna get a hold of that stupid lamp! Just forget it. Look at this. Look at this. I’m so ticked off that I’m molting!
Jafar: Patience, Iago. Patience. Gazeem was obviously less than worthy.
Iago: Oh, there’s a big surprise. That’s an incred–I think I’m gonna have a heart attack and die from not surprise! What’re we gonna do? We got a big problem here,a big prob-
[Jafar pinches his beak shut.]
Jafar: Yes, we do. Only one may enter. I must find this one, this… diamond in the rough.

Iago: I can’t take it anymore! If I gotta choke down on one more of those moldy, disgusting crackers… bam! Whack!
Jafar: Calm yourself, Iago.
Iago: Then I’d grab him around the head. Whack! Whack!
Jafar: Soon, I will be sultan, not that addlepated twit.
Iago: And then I stuff the crackers down his throat!

Iago: With all due respect, your rottenness, couldn’t we just wait for a real storm?
Jafar: Save your breath, Iago. Faster! [He places the Sultan’s ring in the contraption.]
Iago: Yes, o mighty evil one.
[Iago runs faster. A lightning bolt streaks through the ring, passing into an hourglass below. The sands begin to swirl.]
Jafar: Ah, sands of time– reveal to me the one who can enter the cave. [The sand in top forms the Cave of Wonders. It falls through into a storm, but it shows Aladdin climbing up a ladder, followed by Jasmine, who is covered in her cloak.] Yes, yes! There he is. My diamond in the rough!
Iago: That’s him?!?! That’s the clown we’ve been waitin’ for?
Jafar: Let’s have the guards extend him an invitation to the palace, shall we?

Sultan: Jafar, this is an outrage. If it weren’t for all your years of loyal service… From now on, you are to discuss sentencing of prisoners with me, before they are beheaded.
Jafar: I assure you, your highness, it won’t happen again.
Sultan: Jasmine, Jafar, now let’s put this whole messy business behind us. Please?
Jafar: My most abject and humblest apologies to you as well, princess.
Jasmine: At least some good will come of my being forced to
marry. When I am queen, I will have the power to get rid of you.
Sultan: That’s nice. All settled, then. Now, Jasmine, getting back to this suitor business. Jasmine? Jasmine!
Jafar: If only I had gotten that lamp!
Iago: I will have the power to get rid of you! D’oh! To think–we gotta keep kissing up to that chump, and his chump daughter for the rest of our lives…
Jafar: No, Iago. Only until she finds a chump husband. Then she’ll have us banished–or beheaded!
BOTH: Eeewww!
Iago: Oh! Wait a minute! Wait a minute! Jafar? What if you were the chump husband?
Jafar: What?
Iago: Okay, you marry the princess, all right? Then, uh, you become sultan!
Jafar: Oh! Marry the shrew? I become sultan. The idea has merit!
Iago: Yes, merit! Yes! And then we drop papa-in-law and the little woman off a cliff! Kersplat!
Jafar: Iago, I love the way your foul little mind works!

Jafar: Sire, I have found a solution to the problem with your daughter.
Iago: Awk! The problem with your daughter!
Sultan: Oh, really?
Jafar: Right here. “If the princess has not chosen a husband by the appointed time, then the sultan shall choose for her.”
Sultan: But Jasmine hated all those suitors! How could I choose someone she hates?
Jafar: Not to worry, my liege. There is more. If, in the event a suitable prince cannot be found, a princess must then be wed to… hmm… interesting.
Sultan: What? Who?
Jafar: The royal vizier! Why, that would be… me!
Sultan: Why, I thought the law says that only a prince can marry a princess, I’m quite sure.
Jafar: Desperate times call for desperate measures, my lord.
Sultan: Yes… desperate measures…
Jafar: You will order the princess to marry me.
Sultan: I… will order… the princess… to… but you’re so old!
Jafar:The princess will marry me!
Sultan: The princess will marry… What? What is that? That music! Ha ha ha. Jafar, you must come and see this!

Iago: We gotta get outta here! We gotta get– I gotta start packing, your highness. Only essentials. Travel light! Bring the guns, the weapons, the knives and how about this picture? I don’t know– I think I’m making a weird face in it. [Jafar starts to laugh wildly.] Oh, boy–he’s gone nuts. He’s cracked. [Iago flies down to him and knocks on his head.] Jafar? Jafar? Get a grip, Jafar! [Jafar grabs him around the neck] Good grip!
Jafar: Prince Ali is nothing more than that ragged urchin Aladdin. He has the lamp, Iago.
Iago: Why that miserable–
Jafar: But you are going to relieve him of it!
Iago: Me?

Genie: You know Al, I’m getting really–I don’t think you’re him. Tonight, the role of Al will be played by a tall, dark and sinister ugly man.
Jafar: I am your master now.
Genie: I was afraid of that.
Jafar: Genie, grant me my first wish. I wish to rule on high, as sultan!

Aladdin: Genie! No!
Genie: Sorry, kid–I got a new master now.
Sultan: Jafar, I order you to stop!
Jafar: There’s a new order now–my order! Finally, you will bow to me!

Jasmine: We’ll never bow to you!
Iago: Why am I not surprised?
Jafar: If you will not bow before a sultan, then you will cower before a sorcerer! Genie, my second wish–I wish to be the most powerful sorcerer in the world!

Iago: Ladies and gentlemen, a warm Agrabah welcome for Sorcerer Jafar!
Jafar: Now where were we? Ah, yes–abject humiliation! [He zaps Jasmine and the Sultan with his staff, and they both bow to him. Rajah comes running at him. He zaps Rajah, and the tiger turns into a kitty-cat.] Down, boy! Oh, princess–[lifts her chin with his staff] –there’s someone I’m dying to introduce you to.

Jafar: It pains me to see you reduced to this, Jasmine. [He takes a bite out of the apple she is holding.] A beautiful desert bloom such as yourself should be on the arm of the most powerful man in the world. [He waves his finger and a crown appears.] What do you say, my dear? Why, with you as my queen…
Jasmine: Never!
Jafar: I’ll teach you some respect! [She falls back as he raises his hand to slap her. Then he stops.] No. Genie, I have decided to make my final wish. I wish for Princess Jasmine to fall desperately in love with me.
Genie: Ah, master– there are a few addendas, some quid pro quo-
Jafar: Don’t talk back to me, you stupid blue lout! You will do what I order you to do, slave!

Jafar: You little fool! You thought you could defeat the most powerful being on earth!
Iago: Squeeze him, Jafar–Squeeze him like a–awk! [Genie elbows him out of the way]
Jafar: Without the genie, boy, you’re nothing!
Aladdin: The genie! The genie! The genie has more power than you’ll ever have!
Jafar: What!!
Aladdin: He gave you your power, he can take it away!
Genie: Al, what are you doing? Why are you bringing me into this?
Aladdin: Face it, Jafar- you’re still just second best!
Jafar: You’re right! His power does exceed my own! But not for long!
[Jafar circles around the Genie.]
Genie: The boy is crazy. He’s a little punch drunk. One too many hits with the snake
Jafar: Slave, I make my third wish! I wish to be an all powerful genie!
Genie: All right, your wish is my command. Way to go, Al.

Jafar: The universe is mine to command, to control!
Aladdin:Not so fast, Jafar! Aren’t you forgetting something? You wanted to be a genie, you got it! And everything that goes with it!

Megara (Hercules): ISTP


Dominant Introverted Thinking [Ti]: Meg has a quick wit, which she frequently uses to insult those around her. She’s logical, independent, and doesn’t rely on anyone to save her. When she first meets Hercules, she believes she can deal with Nessus on her own, telling him that she’s capable of handling the situation herself. She has confidence in her ability to come up with solutions to her problems without any help. Meg prefers to remain detached and doesn’t want to grow too close to Hercules. She’s clever and comes up with several ways to manipulate Hercules (claiming that she has “weak ankles” as a segue to get Hercules to open up about his own weaknesses). Meg is cynical, snarky, and believes that it’s best to isolate herself so that nobody can hurt her.

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: It’s easy for Meg to use what is immediately available to her accomplish a task. She manipulates Hercules using her sexuality. When Hades tasks Meg with finding out his weakness, she does so by persuading him to play hooky with her and shows him a fun-filled day. Though it’s never stated, one might infer that Meg purposely tripped down the steps in order to start a conversation with Hercules about weaknesses because she was trying to get him to admit his. Meg is comfortable in risky situations and can make shortsighted decisions without considering the ramifications when presented with an opportunity (selling her soul to Hades in exchange for her boyfriend’s life). She’s quick to leap into action (hopping onto Pegasus to get Phil in order to save Hercules, even though she’s terrified of heights). She also notices the pillar about to fall and crush Hercules and is able to push him out of the way in the nick of time, saving his life.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Meg is driven by one goal – work off her debt and eventually be free from Hades forever. She experiences flashes of insight – she can tell relatively quickly that Hercules isn’t like everybody else and believes in him. Meg is good at knowing how to manipulate people and instinctively knows which buttons to push. Once Meg falls for Hercules, she becomes determined to protect him from Hades, regardless of the consequences. Meg appears to believe in universal truths about the world and humanity (everyone is petty and dishonest).

Inferior Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: Admitting her feelings doesn’t come easily for Meg. Instead, she keeps them hidden and denies the truth. Although she was working with Hades to obtain her freedom, in the end, she sacrifices herself to save Hercules. Meg is willing to make selfless choices for those she loves – she’s only a slave to Hades because she sold her soul to him in an attempt to save her boyfriend’s life. Although Meg doesn’t lead with her emotions, she is able to tap into them, as she puts on quite a performance for Hercules in order to convince him to come save the two little boys (Pain and Panic), who were supposedly trapped as a result of a rock slide.

Quotes:

Hercules: Pardon me, my good, uh… uh… sir. I’ll have to ask you to release that young –
Megara: Keep movin’, junior.
Hercules: — lady. But you… are-aren’t you… a damsel in distress?
Megara: I’m a damsel. I’m in distress. I can handle this. Have a nice day.

Megara: Megara. My friends call me Meg, or at least they would if I had any friends. So… did they give you a name along with all those rippling pectorials?
Hercules: Uh, I’m, uh, um-
Megara: Are you always this articulate?
Hercules: Hercules. My… My name is Hercules.
Megara: Hercules, huh? I think I prefer Wonderboy.
Hercules: So, uh, how-how-how’d you get mixed up with the, uh-
Megara: Pinhead with hooves? [Hercules nods] Well, you know how men are. They think “no” means “yes” and “get lost” means “take me, I’m yours”. Don’t worry, Shorty here can explain it to ya later. Well, thanks for everything, Herc. It’s been a real slice. [She starts to walk away.]
Hercules: Wait! [She stops and turns.] Um… can we give you a ride? [Pegasus snorts, whinnies and flies to a high branch.]
Megara: Uh… I don’t think your pinto likes me very much.
Hercules: Pegasus? Oh, no, don’t be silly! He’d be more than happy to- Ow. [PEGASUS has dropped an apple on Hercules’ head. He looks up and Pegasus whistles innocently.]
Megara: I’ll be alright. I’m a big, tough girl. I can tie my own sandals and everything. [She walks away again.] Bye-bye, Wonderboy.

Megara: Please! Help! Please! There’s been a terrible accident!
Hercules: Meg?
Phil: Speakin’ of disasters.
Megara: Wonderboy! Hercules, thank goodness!
Hercules: Wha-what’s wrong?
Megara: Outside of town, two little boys, they were playing in the gorge. There was this rock slide, a terrible rock slide! They’re
trapped!
Hercules: Kids? Trapped? Phil! Phil, this is great!
Megara: You’re really choked up about this, aren’t ya?

Megara: Looks like your game is over- Wonderboy’s hitting every curve you throw at him.
Hades: Oh, yeah… I wonder if maybe I haven’t been throwing the right curves at him, Meg, my sweet.
Megara: Don’t even go there.
Hades: See, he’s gotta have a weakness, because everybody’s got a weakness, I mean for Pandora, it was the box thing, for the
Trojans, hey, they bet on the wrong horse, okay? We simply need to find out Wonderboy’s.
Megara: I’ve done my part. Get your little imps-
Hades: They couldn’t handle him as a baby. I need someone who can … handle him as a man.
Megara: Hey, I’ve sworn off man-handling.
Hades: Well, you know, that’s good, because that’s what got you into this jam in the first place, isn’t it? You sold your soul to me to
save your boyfriend’s life. And how does this creep thank you? By running off with some babe. He hurt you real bad, didn’t he, Meg? Huh?
Megara: Look, I learned my lesson, okay?
Hades: Which is exactly why I got a feelin’ you’re gonna leap at my new offer. You give me the key to bringing down Wonderbreath and I give you the thing that you crave most in the entire cosmos! Your freedom.

Megara: Let’s see … what could be behind curtain number one? [She pulls the cord on the side and we see Hercules behind the curtain.]
Hercules: Meg!
Megara: It’s alright. The sea of raging hormones has ebbed.
Hercules: Gee, i-i-it’s great to see you. I-I-I missed you.
Megara: [Flopping down onto a couch] So this is what heroes do on their days off?
Hercules: Ah… I’m no hero…
Megara: Sure ya are. Everybody in Greece thinks you’re the greatest thing since they put the pocket in pita.
Hercules: I know, it’s-it’s crazy, y’know, I can’t go anywhere
without being mobbed, I mean-
Megara: Ah. You sound like you could use a day off. Think your nanny goat would go berserk if you played hooky this afternoon?
Hercules: Oh, gee. I-I don’t know. Phil’s got the rest of the day pretty much booked-
Megara: Ah, Phil-schmill. Just follow me- out the window, round the dumbbells, you lift up the back wall and we’re gone.

Hercules: I didn’t know playing hooky could be so much fun.
Megara: Yeah. Neither did I.
Hercules: Thanks, Meg.
Megara: Oh… don’t thank me just yet. Oh! [She falls into HERCULES’ arms.]
Hercules: Oops- careful.
Megara: Sorry. Weak ankles.
Hercules: Oh yeah? Well maybe you’d better sit down. [He carries her over to a bench, puts her down, then sits down beside her.]
Megara: So… uh… do you have any problems with things like this? [She stretches out her leg and holds her foot right in front of his face.]
Hercules: Uh…
Megara: Weak ankles, I mean.
Hercules: Oh. Uh, no. Not really.
Megara: [Moving closer to him] No weaknesses whatsoever? No trick knee?
Hercules: Uh…
Megara: Ruptured… disks?
Hercules: No. I’m… I’m afraid I’m uh… fit as a fiddle. [He stands.]
Megara: [sighs] Wonderboy, you are perfect.
Hercules: Thanks.

Megara: If there’s a prize for rotten judgement,
I guess I’ve already won that
No man is worth the aggravation
That’s ancient history, been there, done that

Megara: No chance no way I won’t say it, no no
It’s too cliche I won’t say I’m in love

Megara: I thought my heart had learned its lesson
It feels so good when you start out
My head is screaming “Get a grip girl
Unless you’re dying to cry your heart out

Megara: No chance no way I won’t say it, no no
This scene won’t play I won’t say I’m in love
You’re way off base I won’t say it
At least out loud I won’t say I’m in love

Hades: I’m sorry… you hear that sound? That’s the sound on your freedom fluttering out the window… forever.
Megara: I don’t care. I’m not gonna help you hurt him.
Hades: I can’t believe you’re getting so worked up about some… guy.
Megara: This one is different. He’s honest, and – and he’s sweet-
Hades: Please.
Megara: He would never do anything to hurt me.
Hades: He’s a guy!
Megara: Besides, oh Oneness, you can’t beat him. He has no weaknesses. He’s gonna —
Hades: I think he does, Meg. I truly think… he does.

Megara: Hercules! Look out! [She pushes him out of the way, but the pillar falls on her instead.]
Hercules: Meg! NO! What’s happening?
Megara: H-Hades’ deal is broken. He promised I wouldn’t get hurt.
Hercules: Meg. Why- why did you… you didn’t have to-
Megara: Oh, people always do crazy things… when they’re in love.
Hercules: Oh… Meg. Meg, I- I…
Megara: Are you… always this articulate? You- you haven’t got much time. You can still stop Hades.

Genie (Aladdin): ENFP


Dominant Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: The Genie’s brain is a parade of ideas and possibilities. One thought leads him to an idea, which leads him to another, and so on, which can make it a challenge to keep up with him. When he first emerges from the lamp and introduces himself to Aladdin, he goes through a series of nicknames for him, such as Al, Din, and Laddi). When he says “Laddi” he automatically think of a Scottish dog. The Genie talks extremely fast because of how quickly his mind jumps from one thought to the next. He’s very creative and enjoys designing Aladdin’s prince outfit. He thinks that Aladdin needs a mode of transportation, and instantly decided to transform Abu into another kind of animal to get the job done, turning him into a camel, a white horse, an ostrich, and several others animals (and even a car) before deciding to turn him into an elephant. The Genie’s ability to think of connections quickly allows him to come up with impressions or props that highlight whatever he says in the moment. His brain moves so quickly that he doesn’t even need time to think about what he’s going to do next.

Auxiliary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: The only thing the Genie really wants is to be free. He wants to be his own master and doesn’t want to follow anyone else’s orders. He won’t kill anybody, force people to fall in love, or bring anyone back to life, though we don’t know for certain if he physically can’t or chooses not to for moral reasons. Genie values honestly and repeatedly encourages Aladdin to tell Jasmine the truth. He wants Aladdin to just try being himself. Although the Genie wants to be free more than anything else in the world, he is willing to sacrifice his freedom to allow Jasmine and Aladdin to be together because he cares about Aladdin’s happiness and is extremely loyal to him. Even though Aladdin technically needs to make a wish for Genie to do anything, he saves Aladdin’s life while he’s underwater anyway, even though no wish was actually made. He’s very hurt when Aladdin tells him he can’t follow through on his promise to wish him free. He’s upset that he lied to him, just like he lied to everyone else. The Genie doesn’t like serving others. He doesn’t want to spend his life asking what other people need – he wants to meet his own needs!

Tertiary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: Although the Genie is fun-loving and compassionate, he does have a firm set of rules that he adheres to. He takes his numerous brainstorms and brings his ideas to life. Although he’s creative, his logic is more grounded. He’s unable to see a way out of their predicament because he has to work for Jafar now. He has the lamp and those are the rules, so what can they possibly do to save themselves? It’s Aladdin’s ability to generate solutions on the spot that saves them from Jafar. He’s also unable to see where Aladdin is going (manipulating Jafar into wishing to become a Genie himself, so they can trap him in the lamp) and doesn’t understand why Aladdin is bringing him into things. It’s harder for the Genie to see beyond the facts of the situation, making it more difficult for him to work around them.

Inferior Introverted Sensing [Si]: Genie sometimes compares the past to the present and doesn’t believe that Aladdin will actually wish him free because nobody’s ever done it before, so that means nobody ever will. One of the first things he says after seeing Aladdin is that he’s “a lot shorter than his last master.” He hates the same old routine of getting out of the lamp, meeting a new master, granting three wishes, and repeating the cycle. He wants to explore the world! He wants to charter his own path! He’s very good at making references and doing impressions, which he typically busts out for comedic purposes. Even though he was very excited about having his freedom, he didn’t stop to think about how he would miss Aladdin when it was actually time for him to go, which made him briefly sentimental before he reverted to his optimistic, cheerful self and took off.

Enneagram: 7w6 9w1 2w1 Sx/So

Quotes:

Genie: Hello, Aladdin. Nice to have you on the show. Can we call you ‘Al?’ Or maybe just ‘Din?’ Or how bout ‘Laddi?’ [Genie disappears, then a dog wrapped in plaid jumps in.] Sounds like ‘Here, boy! C’mon, Laddi!’

Aladdin: Fair deal. So, three wishes. I want them to be good. What would you wish for?
Genie: Me? No one’s ever asked me that before. Well, in my case… Ah, forget it.
Aladdin: What? No, tell me.
Genie: Freedom.
Aladdin: You’re a prisoner?
Genie: It’s all part-and-parcel, the whole genie gig. Phenomenal cosmic powers! Itty bitty living space.
Aladdin: Genie, that’s terrible.
Genie: But, oh – to be free! Not have to go “Poof! What do you need? Poof! What do you need? Poof! What do you need?” To be my own master, such a thing would be greater than all the magic and all the treasures in all the world! But what am I talking about here? Let’s get real here. It’s not gonna happen. Genie, wake up and smell the hummus.
Aladdin: Why not?
Genie: The only way I get outta this is if my master wishes me out. So you can guess how often that’s happened.
Aladdin: I’ll do it. I’ll set you free.
Genie: [Head turns into Pinocchio’s with a long nose] Uh huh. Right. Whoop!
Aladdin: No, really. I promise. [He pushes the nose back in and Genie’s head returns to normal] After I make my first two wishes, I’ll use my third wish to set you free. [He holds out his hand.]
Genie: Well, here’s hopin! [Shakes Aladdin’s hand] Okay. Let’s make some magic!

Genie: Here he comes, [Aladdin and Genie are on a game show set, where ALADDIN stands behind a podium with “AL” on it.] And what better way to make your grand entrance on the streets of Agrabah, than riding your very own brand new camel! Watch out, it spits! [A door bearing the Genie’s head on it opens, where ABU is transformed into a camel. He spits out the side of his mouth on cue. But the Genie’s not sure.] Mmm, not enough. [He snaps his fingers and Abu turns into a fancy white horse.] Still not enough. Let’s see. What do you need?
[The Genie snaps his fingers repeatedly, turning Abu into: a duck, an ostrich, a turtle, and a Cadillac, with license plate “ABU 1.” Finally, he’s returned to normal.] Yes! Esalalumbo, shimin dumbo! Whoa!! [Abu turns into an elephant.] Talk about your trunk space, check this action out!

Aladdin: Genie, I need help.
Genie: [as Jack Nicholson] All right, sparky, here’s the deal. You wanna court the little lady, you gotta be a straight shooter, do ya follow me?
Aladdin: What?
Genie: [Back to normal, wearing a mortarboard. He points out his words on a blackboard] Tell her the…TRUTH!!!
Aladdin: No way! If Jasmine found out I was really some crummy street rat, she’d laugh at me.
Genie: A woman appreciates a man who can make her laugh! Al, all joking aside, you really oughtta be yourself.
Aladdin: Hey, that’s the last thing I want to be. Okay, I’m gonna go see her. I gotta be smooth, cool, confident. How do I look?
Genie: Like a prince.

Genie: Al? Al! Kid, snap out of it! You can’t cheat on this one! I can’t help you unless you make a wish. You have to say “Genie, I want you to save my life.” Got it? Okay? C’mon, Aladdin! [He grabs Aladdin by the shoulders and shakes him. His head goes up, then falls.] I’ll take that as a yes. [Genie’s head turns into a siren.] Wooga! Wooga! [He turns into a submarine.] Up scope! [On the surface, a giant water spout emerges and lands on top of the cliff. Aladdin reawakes and coughs the water out of his lungs.] Don’t scare me like that!
Aladdin: Genie, I–uh, I-uh… [They hug.] Thanks, Genie.
Genie: Oh, Al. I’m gettin’ kind of fond of you, kid. Not that I want to pick out curtains or anything.

Genie: [After Aladdin tells him he can’t wish him free.] Hey, I understand. After all, you’ve lied to everyone else. Hey, I was beginning to feel left out. Now, if you’ll excuse me, master.

Jafar: Without the genie, boy, you’re nothing!
Aladdin: The genie! The genie! The genie has more power than you’ll ever have!
Jafar: What!
Aladdin: He gave you your power, he can take it away!
Genie: Al, what are you doing? Why are you bringing me into this?
Aladdin: Face it, Jafar – you’re still just second best!
Jafar: You’re right! His power does exceed my own! But not for long!
Genie: The boy is crazy. He’s a little punch drunk. One too many hits with the snake.
Jafar: Slave, I make my third wish! I wish to be an all powerful genie!
Genie: [reluctantly] All right, your wish is my command. Way to go, Al.

Aladdin: Jasmine, I’m sorry I lied to you about being a prince.
Jasmine: I know why you did.
Aladdin: Well, I guess…this… is goodbye? [GENIE pokes his head around the corner shocked at what he is hearing.]
Jasmine: Oh, that stupid law. This isn’t fair… I love you.
Genie: [Wipes away a tear] Al, no problem. You’ve still
got one wish left. Just say the word and you’re a prince again.
Aladdin: But Genie, what about your freedom?
Genie: Hey, it’s only an eternity of servitude. This is love. [He leans down next to her.] Al, you’re not gonna find another girl like her in a million years. Believe me, I know. I’ve looked.

Genie: Heh, heh! I’m free. I’m free. [He hands the lamp to Aladdin.] Quick, quick, wish for something outrageous. Say “I want the Nile.” Wish for the Nile. Try that!
Aladdin: I wish for the Nile.
Genie: No way! [Laughs hysterically. He bounces around the balcony like a pinball.] Oh does that feel good! I’m free! I’m free at last! I’m hittin’ the road. I’m off to see the world! I- [He’s packing a suitcase, but looks down and notices that Aladdin looks sad. He also looks sad, realizing that this means he has to leave Aladdin]
Aladdin: Genie, I’m – I’m gonna miss you.
Genie: Me too, Al. No matter what anybody says, you’ll always be a prince to me.

Genie: Oh, all of ya. Come over here. Big group hug! Mind if I kiss the monkey? [He kisses Abu.] Ooh, hairball! Well, I can’t do any more damage around this popsicle stand. I’m outta here! Bye, bye, you two crazy lovebirds. Hey, Rugman, ciao! I’m history! No, I’m mythology! No, I don’t care what I am – I’m free!
