John Carter

Tars Tarkas: Did I not tell you he could jump!

Tars Tarkas: [on Barsoom, Carter discovers due to his different bone density and planet's low gravity, he's able to jump high, after which he runs into the Tharks and their leader, Tars Tarkas]

[subtitled]

Tars Tarkas: Hello! Don't run. Don't run away.

John Carter: [Carter hides behind some rocks not understanding anything Tarkas is saying]

Tars Tarkas: [subtitled] Hello. Don't run. Don't run away.

John Carter: [Tarkas slowly walks towards Carter and Carter comes out from behind the rocks] Alright. You've got me. I surrender.

Tars Tarkas: [Tarkas points to himself] Jeddak.

John Carter: Jeddak?

Tars Tarkas: Jeddak. Tars Tarkas

John Carter: [Carter salutes as he introduces himself] Captain John Carter, Virginia.

Tars Tarkas: Vir... ginia. Virginia!

John Carter: No. My name is John Carter. I'm from Virginia.

Tars Tarkas: [subtitled] Virginia. Jump as you did before.

John Carter: [not understanding what Tarkas is saying Carter repeats the word for jump] Sak?

Tars Tarkas: [subtitled] Jump, yes?

[Tarkas mimes the motion of jumping with his hands]

Tars Tarkas: Sak.

John Carter: Sak! Yes, sir.

[Carter salutes and jumps and as he lands he grabs the weapon that Tarkas had thrown to the ground]

Tars Tarkas: [shouting to his men as Carter points the weapon at Tarkas]

[subtitled]

Tars Tarkas: Don't shoot it! Don't shoot it! Don't shoot it!

[as Tarkas lunges himself onto Carter, one of his soldiers shoots Carter in the butt, after which Tarkas takes him prisoner, straps him to one of their alien horse creatures, along with some Thark hatchlings]

John Carter: [shouting] What is this place? Where am I?

Tars Tarkas: [subtitled] Virginia. It's okay, just relax.

John Carter: Where's my damn gold?

Young Thark Warrior: [one of Tarkas' soldiers walks up to him to inform him about the eggs]

[subtitled]

Young Thark Warrior: Eighteen have not yet hatched, Jeddak.

Tars Tarkas: [subtitled] Then they are not our kind. Leave nothing for the white apes.

John Carter: [Carter watches as Tarkas' soldiers shoot the unhatched eggs] Where on earth am I?

Tars Tarkas: [subtitled] Watch. Everyone, step back. Show them, Virginia. Jump. Jump!

John Carter: [spits]

Tars Tarkas: By Issus, you will jump tomorrow, Virginia.

Tars Tarkas: [to John] You are ugly, but you are beautiful. And you fight like a Thark!

Tars Tarkas: [voiceover] Mars. So you name it and think that you know it. The red planet, no air, no life. But you do not know Mars, for its true name is Barsoom. And it is not airless, nor is it dead, but it is dying. The city of Zodanga saw to that.

Tars Tarkas: When I saw you, I believed it was a sign... that something new can come into this world.

Tars Tarkas: Zodanga, red flags. Helium, blue. Zodanga is winning the war. But I say let red men kill red men until only Tharks remain.

John Carter: That doesn't look like a fair fight.

Tars Tarkas: Zodanga never fights fair.

Tardos Mors: Dejah, ever since you were a little girl, you've always met the expectations placed on you. It's Sab's terms.

Dejah Thoris: What are they?

Tardos Mors: He will spare Helium, if you accept his hand in marriage.

Dejah Thoris: No! He is a monster! You must refuse him!

Tardos Mors: He's already on his way here.

Dejah Thoris: But all of my work! I just need a little more time!

Tardos Mors: Dejah.

Dejah Thoris: How can you...? You can't just bow down to Zodanga!

Tardos Mors: A wedding will save the city!

Dejah Thoris: Perhaps! But it could lose you Barsoom!

Tardos Mors: Dejah!

Dejah Thoris: With no one to stop Zodanga it will be the beginning of the end!

Tardos Mors: We do not... we do not have the luxury.

Dejah Thoris: [shouting] You are the Jeddak of Helium! You must find another way!

Tardos Mors: [shouting] There is no other way!

[Dejah looks away from Tardos]

Tardos Mors: If there were, I would risk anything to cease it. This is the chance we have been given. Perhaps it is the will of the Goddess.

Dejah Thoris: No. It is your will. When I was little and we would look up at the stars, and you would tell me of the heroes whose glory was written in the sky. How there was a star up there for me. Is this what you imagined would be written on it?

Tardos Mors: [before Tardos answers her Kantos enters with his men]

Kantos Kan: My Jeddak, Sab Than's Corsair approaches the city. They signal for permission to land.

Tardos Mors: Grant it.

[Dejah turns away from Tardos in disappointment and sadness]

Tardos Mors: And let us prepare ourselves for a wedding.

Tardos Mors: Dejah, ever since you were a little girl you've always met the expectations placed on you...

[Dejah gently places her hand on his]

Tardos Mors: It's Sab's terms.

Dejah Thoris: What are they?

Tardos Mors: He will spare Helium if you accept his hand in marriage.

[Places his hand upon hers but Dejah quickly takes it away]

Dejah Thoris: No. He is a monster! You must refuse him!

Tardos Mors: He's already on his way here.

Dejah Thoris: But all of my work... I just need a little more time.

Tardos Mors: Dejah.

Dejah Thoris: How can you... You can't just bow down to Zodanga!

Tardos Mors: A wedding will save the city!

Dejah Thoris: Perhaps but it could lose you Barsoom!

Tardos Mors: Dejah.

Dejah Thoris: With no one to stop Zodanga will be the beginning of the end! You are a Jeddak of Helium! You must find another way!

Tardos Mors: There is not another way!
