    • [after Moana attempts to sail a boat for the first time and crashes it]
    • Moana: Are you gonna tell Dad?
    • Gramma Tala: I'm his mom. I don't have to tell him anything.
    • [first lines]
    • Gramma Tala: In the beginning there was only ocean until the Mother Island emerged. Te Fiti. Her heart held the greatest power ever known. It could create life itself. And Te Fiti shared it with the world. But in time, some began to seek Te Fiti's heart. They believed if they could possess it, the great power of creation would be theirs. And one day, the most daring of them all voyaged across the vast ocean to take it. He was a demi-god of the wind and sea. He was a warrior. A trickster. A shapeshifter who could change form with the power of his magical fishhook. And his name was Maui.
    • [Maui takes the Heart of Te Fiti, causing the island to crumble as he runs away]
    • Gramma Tala: But without her heart, Te Fiti began to crumble, giving birth to a terrible darkness.
    • [Maui jumps off a cliff and shapeshifts into a hawk, flying back to his boat]
    • Gramma Tala: Maui tried to escape but was confronted by another who sought the Heart. Te Ka! A demon of earth and fire. Maui was struck from the sky, never to be seen again. And his magical fishhook and the Heart of Te Fiti were lost to the sea. Where, even now, a thousand years later, Te Ka and the demons of the deep still hunt for the Heart. Hiding in a darkness that will continue to spread, chasing away our fish, draining the life from island after island until every one of us is devoured by the bloodthirsty jaws of inescapable death!
    • [one child screams in fear while another faints as Moana claps]
    • Gramma Tala: But one day, the Heart will be found by someone who will journey beyond our reef, find Maui, deliver him across the great ocean to restore Te Fiti's Heart and save us all.

    • Moana: If there's something you want to tell me, just tell me! Is there something you want to tell me?

    • Moana: It's okay. You're all right. See? There we go. Nice water. The ocean is a friend of mine.
    • [Moana puts a hand in the water. Heihei sees this and then jumps headfirst into the water, sinking completely. Alarmed, Moana ge]
    • [concerned]
    • Moana: Heihei?
    • [Heihei floats by, five feet away from the raft, his head under the water's surface with his legs sticking up in the air]
    • [Maui has just double-crossed Moana by trapping her in a cave and stealing her boat and taking an eternally clueless Heihei with]
    • [to Heihei]
    • Maui: And I'm going to love you in ma belly. Now, let's fatten you up, drumstick.
    • [Maui puts some corn and seeds in front of Heihei]
    • [Heihei pauses, and then pecks at a section of the raft floor that doesn't have any seeds or corn. Maui looks on in amazement an]
    • [tasting a bit of meat given to her]
    • Moana: Mmm! That is good pork!
    • [Pua, Moana's pet pig, gives her a "sad puppy eyes" look]
    • Moana: Oh! I didn't mean... no, I wasn't... What? They're calling me, so I gotta... Bye!

    • [starts to doze off and the ocean hits her and she wakes with a start]
    • Moana: Board my boat!
    • [addressing the ocean]
    • Moana: Um... *what*? I said help me! And wrecking my boat? Not *helping*!
    • [She kicks at the water, which recedes, causing her to fall]
    • Moana: Fish pee in you... all day!
    • Moana: I tried Gramma... I-I couldn't do it.
    • Gramma Tala: It's not your fault. I never should have put so much on your shoulders. If you are ready to go home... I will be with you.
    • [as Moana prepares to row back home, she stops]
    • Gramma Tala: Why do you hesitate?
    • Moana: I don't know.
    • Sina: Sometimes who we wish we were, what we wish we could do, is just not meant to be.
    • [singing]
    • Moana: I have crossed the horizon to find you. / I know your name. / They have stolen the heart from inside you. / But this does not define you. / This is not who you are. / You know who you are... who you truly are.
    • [to Moana]
    • Gramma Tala: Whatever just happened... blame it on the pig.
    • [to Heihei]
    • Moana: Te Ka can't follow us into the water. We make it past the barrier islands... we make it to Te Fiti. None of which you understand... because you are a chicken.
    • [to Moana; about HeiHei, who is pecking at a huge rock in front of him. Pua is watching Heihei, looking concerned]
    • Villager: I am curious about that chicken eating the rock. He basically lacks an intelligence required for pretty much... everything. So can we just...
    • [blinks coyly]
    • Villager: ...Cook him?
    • Moana: Well, some of our strengths lie beneath the surface, while others...
    • [Moana sees that Heihei has swallowed the stone, which is causing a bulge in his neck]
    • Moana: ...far beneath...
    • [hopefully]
    • Moana: But, I'm pretty sure there's a lot more to HeiHei than meets the eye.
    • [HeiHei squawks; he regurgitates the rock which plops right infront of him. HeiHei pauses, and then proceeds to pecking the rock]
    • [Tamatoa is about to eat Maui]
    • Moana: Hey!
    • Tamatoa: Huh?
    • [holding up what appears to be the Heart of Te Fiti]
    • Moana: I've got something shiny for ya!
    • [Tamatoa spits Maui out; awestrucked]
    • Tamatoa: The Heart of Te Fiti!
    • [Threatening]
    • Tamatoa: You cannot run from me!
    • [Moana takes off running]
    • [Following after her; mock surprise]
    • Tamatoa: Oh, you *can* run from me! You keep surprising me!
    • [talking about his past]
    • Maui: I wasn't born a demi-god. I had human parents. They took one look and they decided... that they did not want me. So, they threw me into the ocean like I was nothing. Somehow, I was rescued by the Gods. They gave me the fish hook. They made me...
    • [exaltant]
    • Maui: ..."Maui".
    • [talking normally]
    • Maui: So... Back to the humans I went. I gave them everything. Islands, fire and coconuts. Heh, everything they can never get enough of.
    • Moana: You stole the heart... for them. Because you wanted to be loved...
    • [solemnly]
    • Maui: It was *never* enough.
    • [Moana has just discovered that she was descended from voyagers; she runs out of the cave, screaming excitedly]
    • Moana: We were voyagers! We were voyagers! We were voyagers!
    • [Before their eyes, the ocean becomes animated and stretches over to look at the two women as music plays in the background]
    • [sits down besides Tala; calmly]
    • Moana: Why did we stop.
    • Gramma Tala: *Maui.* When Maui stole from the mother island, darkness fell, Te Ka awoke, Monsters lurked, fishing boats stopped coming back. To protect our people, the ancient chiefs buried our past to be forgotten. Years have past and we have forgotten who we are. And now, the darkness has spread, taking our fish, draining life from island... after island!
    • [Tala points a place on the island where there is a large patch of dead vegetation; Moana gasps]
    • [realizing]
    • Moana: *Our* island!
    • [optimistically]
    • Gramma Tala: But one day, someone will leave our island, journey across the ocean, find Maui...
    • [Tala opens her abalone locket and placing a jade green stone in Moana's hand; the Heart of Te Fiti]
    • Gramma Tala: ...And restore the Heart of Te Fiti! I was there that day... the Ocean had chosen you.
    • [Maui is walking past HeiHei, but then doubles back and grabs him by the neck]
    • [breaking the fourth wall; in high-pitched voice]
    • Maui: Boat snack!
    • [on Maui's damaged fish hook]
    • Moana: We can fix it.
    • [shouting]
    • Maui: WITHOUT MY HOOK, I AM *NOTHING*!
    • [Moana draws back in shock. Maui drops the heart into Moana's boat, and Moana picks it back up]
    • Moana: We're only here 'cause you stole the heart in the first place.
    • Maui: No. We're here because the ocean told you you were special and you believed it.
    • [gathering resolve]
    • Moana: I am Moana of Motonui. You will board my boat...
    • Maui: Goodbye, Moana.
    • Moana: ...sail across the sea...
    • Maui: I'm not killing myself so you can prove something you're not.
    • Moana: ...and restore the heart of Te Fiti. The ocean chose me!
    • [bitterly]
    • Maui: It chose wrong.
    • Maui: It was made by the gods. You can't fix it!
    • Moana: Next time, we'll be more careful. Te Ka was stuck on the barrier islands. It's lava. It can't go in the water. We can find another way around.
    • Maui: I'm not going back.
    • Moana: What? We still have to restore the heart.
    • Maui: My hook is cracked. One more hit and it's over.
    • Moana: Maui, you have to restore the heart!
    • Maui: Without my hook, I am nothing.
    • Moana: That's not true...
    • [Notices a tattoo of a character with flowing hair throwing a baby into the ocean on Maui's back]

    • Maui: They show up, when I earn 'em.
    • Moana: How d'you earn that one? What's that for?
    • Maui: That, uh, man's discovery of nun-ya.
    • Moana: What's nun-ya?
    • Maui: Nun-ya business.
    • [Moana has just taken off to fight off the kakamora and retrieve the heart, taking the oar with her]
    • Maui: Hey! What am I gonna steer with?
    • [gets frustrated]
    • Maui: They're just gonna kill ya!
    • [Moana lands on the Kakamora boat. A large group of kakamora turn and look at her]
    • [smiles bravely]
    • Moana: *Coconuts.*
    • [Moana kicks the kakamoras' butt with the oar]
    • [Teaching Moana to navigate]
    • Maui: You're measuring the stars, not giving the sky a high five.
    • Gramma Tala: When I die, I'm going to come back as one of these.
    • [Manta Rays are dancing around her as she dances with the water]
    • Gramma Tala: Or I chose the wrong tattoo!
    • [a manta ray tattoo is on her back]
    • Moana: Why are you acting *weird*?
    • Gramma Tala: I'm the village crazy lady. That's my job.
    • [Gramma Tala has encouraged Moana to sneak out to the ocean on one of the boats that are lined up. Just before Moana can take ac]
    • Moana: D-Dad! I was only *looking* at the boats! I *wasn't* gonna get on them.
    • [singing]
    • Gramma Tala: I like to dance with the water. The undertow on the waves. The water is mischievous.
    • [Splashes Moana]
    • Gramma Tala: Ha! I like how it misbehaves!
    • Gramma Tala: There is nowhere you could go that I won't be with you.
    • Maui: If the current's warm you're going the right way.
    • [sticks her hand into the water]
    • Moana: It's cold. Wait, it's getting warmer...
    • [looks up and sees Maui grinning slyly]
    • Moana: Argh! That is *disgusting*! What is wrong with you?
    • Moana: Not seeing an entrance.
    • Maui: Yes, because it only appears after a human sacrifice.
    • [Moana gasps]
    • Maui: Kidding! So serious.
    • Tamatoa: Well, Tamatoa hasn't always been this glam. I was a drab little crab once. Now I know I can be happy as a clam, because I'm beautiful, baby!
    • Tamatoa: Did your granny say listen to your heart? Be who you are on the inside? I need three words to tear her argument apart. Your granny lied!
    • Tamatoa: I'd rather be shiny! Like the treasure from a sunken pirate wreck. Scrub the deck and make it look shiny! I will sparkle like a wealthy woman's neck. Chh! Just a sec. Don't ya know? Fish are dumb, dumb, dumb, they chase anything that glitters. Beginners, oh. And here they come, come, come to the brightest thing that glitters.
    • [catches fish in his mouth]
    • Tamatoa: Mmm, fish dinners! I just love free food, and you look like seafood.
    • Tamatoa: Well, well, well. Little Maui's having trouble with his look. You little semi-demi-mini god. Ouch! What a terrible performance, get the hook! Get it? You don't swing it like you used to, man! Yet I have to give you credit for my start, and your tattoos on the outside. For just like you, I made myself a work of art. I'll never hide. I can't!I'm too shiny!
    • Tamatoa: Watch me dazzle like a diamond in the rough. Strut my stuff, my stuff is so shiny! Send your armies, but they'll never be enough! My shell's too tough. Maui, man! You can try, try, try, but you can't expect a demigod to beat a decapod. Look it up! You will die, die, die! Now it's time for me to take apart your aching heart.
    • Tamatoa: Far from the ones who abandoned you chasing the love of these humans who made you feel wanted. You tried to be tough, but your armor's just not hard enough!
    • Tamatoa: Maui! Now it's time to kick your hiney! Ever seen someone so shiny? Soak it in, cause it's the last you'll ever see. C'est la vie, mon amie. I'm so shiny! Now I'll eat you, so prepare your final plea, just for me. You'll never be quite as shiny. You wish you were nice and shiny!
    • Maui: Okay, okay. I see what's happening here. You're face to face with greatness, and it's strange. You don't even know how to feel. It adorable! Well, it's nice to see that humans never change. Open your eyes, let's begin. Yes, it's really me, it's Maui, breathe it in. I know it's a lot, the hair, the bod, when staring at a demigod!
    • Maui: What can I say except you're welcome! For the tides, the sun, the skies. Hey, it's okay, it's okay, you're welcome! I'm just an ordinary demi-guy!
    • Maui: Hey! What has two thumbs and pulled up the sky, when you were waddling ye high? This guy! When the nights got cold, who stole you fire from down below? You're looking at him, yo! Oh! Also I lassoed the sun. You're welcome. To stretch your days and bring you fun. Also I harnessed the breeze. You're welcome! To fill your sails and shake your trees!
    • Maui: So what can I say except you're welcome! For the islands I pulled from the sea! There's no need to pray, it's okay, you're welcome! I guess it's just my way of being me! You're welcome! You're welcome!
    • Maui: Well, come to think of it. Kid, honestly, I could go on and on. I could explain every natural phenomenon. The tide, the grass, the ground? Oh, that was Maui just messing around! I killed an eel, I buried its guts. Sprouted a tree, now you got coconuts! What's the lesson, what is the takeaway? Don't mess with Maui when he's on the breakaway! And the tapestry here on my skin, is a map of the victories I win. Look where I've been, I make everything happen! Look at that mini-me Maui ta-tickety-tappin! Hahahahahaha hey!
    • Maui: Well, anyway, let me say you're welcome for the wonderful world you know! Hey, it's okay, it's okay, you're welcome! Well come to think of it I gotta go! Hey, it's your day to say you're welcome, cause I'm gonna need that boat. I'm sailing away, away, you're welcome. Cause Maui can do anything but float! You're welcome! You're welcome! And thank you!
    • Maui: I'm nothing without my hook!
    • Maui: Stay out of it or you're sleeping in my armpit.
    • Maui: Kakamora.
    • Moana: Kaka-what?
    • Maui: The ocean doesn't help you. You help yourself!
    • Maui: You want to get to Te Fiti? You got to go through a whole ocean of bad. No to mention Te Ka, lava monster. Ever defeat a lava monster?
    • Moana: No. Have you?
    • Maui: First, we get my hook.
    • Moana: Then, save the world! Deal?
    • Maui: Deal.
    • Moana: Teach me to sail. My job is to deliver Maui across the great ocean. I should - I should be sailing.
    • Maui: It's call Wayfinding, Princess. It's not just sails and knots, It's seeing where you're going in your mind. Knowing where you are, by knowing where you've been.
    • Maui: The ocean's straight up pooky dooks!
    • Maui: Don't, it's my grandma's.
    • Tamatoa: "That's my grandma." I ate my grandma! And it took a week cause she was absolutely humongous.
    • Tamatoa: Why are you here ?
    • Moana: Cause you're amazing! And we mortals have heard the tale of the crab. Who became a legend! And I got to know how you being so - crabulous!
    • Maui: Hey, it's okay - it's okay. We're dead soon.
