Aladdin Scene 16

Scene 16

Scene 16

  • Aladdin shows up on Jasmine's balcony, and it doesn't go great at first. He's trying to act all princely and pompous.
  • There is a glimmer of hope when Jasmine thinks she recognizes this guy. Could Prince Ali be the same boy she met in the marketplace?
  • Nope, Aladdin lies. Why would a fancy-pants prince like him go shopping?
  • Finally, the Genie has to turn into a bee and give Aladdin some adviceā€”"Bee yourself." It's punny, but it works.
  • Aladdin tells Jasmine that she's not just some prize for princes to win. She should get to pick a husband she loves. And then he jumps off the balcony.
  • Well, not quite. He steps onto Carpet. And ladies love the magic carpet.
  • Between his newfound feminism and the sheer awesomeness of Carpet, Aladdin manages to win Jasmine over. How about a magic carpet ride?
  • When Jasmine asks if it's safe, Aladdin answers, "Sure, do you trust me?" Hmm. That rings a bell.
  • So, for the second time in the movie, Jasmine decides to trust a guy she's just met and climbs aboard Carpet. They're off.
