The Evil Bargains

Evil Bargains

Shake my hand. Come on, boys, won't you shake a poor sinner's hand?
~ Dr. Facilier bargaining with Prince Naveen and Lawrence.

(At the Red Lobster Inn, Honest John and Gideon are sitting at a table with the Coachman.) (Honest John, singing: Hi-diddle-de-dee, an actor's life for me. A high silk hat and a silver cane, a watch of gold with a diamond chain. Hi-diddle-de-dee, an actor's life for me. It's great to be a celebrity, an actor's life for me!) (He bursts into laughter. Gideon smokes his cigar.) (Honest John: And the dummy fell for it. (laughs) Hook, line, and sinker!) (Gideon eats beer out of a smoke doughnut, but hiccups.) (Honest John: And he STILL thinks we're his friends. And did Stromboli pay? Plenty!) (Honest John tosses a satchel of coins on the table. The Coachman smiles slyly.) (Honest John: That shows you how Honest John will stoop... Eh, Giddy?) (Gideon guzzles down his beer and nods. He hiccups, spilling beer.) (Honest John: Now, Coachman...what's your proposition?) (Coachman: Well...) (The Coachman's pipe glows with an eerie orange light.) (Coachman: How would you blokes like to make some REAL money?) (As he speaks, he pulls out a bag of gold coins and plops it down on the table, opening the sack.) (Honest John: Well! And who do we have to...) (He makes a slitting sound, drawing a finger across his neck.) (Coachman: No, no. NOTHING like that. You see... (He whispers to the two con men.) I'm collecting stupid little boys.) (Honest John: Stupid little boys?) (Coachman: You know, the disobedient ones who want to play hooky from school. And you see...) (He whispers into Honest John and Gideon's ears.) (Honest John: Yes.) (Coachman: And I takes 'em to Pleasure Island.) (Honest John: Ah, Pleasure Island. (He panics.) Pleasure Island?! But the law! Suppose they - !) (Coachman: No, no, there's no risk. They never come BOYS!) (The Coachman grins maliciously. Honest John and Gideon cower and hold each other tightly as the Coachman laughs with wicked glee. Then he grabs them by their collars and pulls them close.) (Coachman: Now...I've got a coach load leaving at midnight. We'll meet at the crossroads, and NO double-crossing!) (Honest John: No, sir.) (Coachman: Scout around, and any good prospects you find, bring 'em to me.) (Honest John: Yes, chief.) (Coachmen: I'll pay you well. I got plenty of gold.) (Honest John: Yes, yes.)

(Sour Kangaroo is walking into the dark forest with Rudy in her pouch.) (Rudy: Can I come out now, Mom?) (Sour Kangaroo, sternly: No, Rudy. Stay in your room.) (Rudy: But Mom...) (Sour Kangaroo: Stay inside.) (She scans the woods.) (Sour Kangaroo: Mr. Vladikoff?) (She steps in deeper and deeper, and just as she thinks all is well, Vlad leaps out from a corner with a scary snarl. Kangaroo shrieks with fright.) (Vlad: Eating, go.) (Sour Kangaroo: Yes. I realize you're busy. But I need your help. It's Horton. He's become obsessed with the clover. And he actually thinks there are little people on it.) (Vlad sniffs, and Rudy cowers in his pouch.) (Sour Kangaroo: I want that clover destroyed.) (Vlad: Sure, what a big deal this is...for you, bro.) (Sour Kangaroo: I do it myself, but being a lady, I prefer NOT to get my hands dirty. But I hear you have no problem with that.) (Vlad: No. No problem. Easy-peasy. But I will only do this for a price, in exchange for a brand-new pair...) (An evil smile crawls across his face, and he looks at the terrified Rudy with hungry eyes.) No...THIS little kangaroo.) (Rudy: Mom!) (Sour Kangaroo, sternly: Quiet, Rudy. Mom is thinking it over. Huh.) (She thinks for a moment, and then...) (Sour Kangaroo: Well, thanks, but on second thought, I think I'm going to have the Wickersham brothers take care of this for me.) (Vlad: Yeah, of course, Wickersham, I mean, they're classy operation, really, well you know... (surprised) Wait! No! You can't go to Wickersham!) (Sour Kangaroo: No, no, NO, no, the Wickershams would be perfect for this job.) (Vlad: But, they're MONKEYS! They's not scary!) (Sour Kangaroo, curtly: Uh, thanks anyway, but maybe next time.) (Vlad: Wait!) (He flies over to Kangaroo and pulls out a bone.) (Vlad, with an evil voice: Here's what I will do to precious clover: I will take it, I will crush it, and I will devour it.) (He gobbles up the bone, but chokes on it as it lodges in his throat.) (Vlad: Bigger than it looked. One second.) (He gags on the bone. Kangaroo is not impressed.) (Vlad: Holy moly.) (Finally, he coughs it up.) (Vlad: Then I regurgitate it. Then...I'm gonna devour it second time. Two - two times devoured.) (Sour Kangaroo: That's nice. But I think I'll talk to the Wickershams.) (She walks away, but...) (Vlad: Wait!) (He blocks Kangaroo's path.) (Vlad: Here is best part: I do all gracious. That's free, bro. (He licks his lips.) What do you think?) (He chuckles, and Kangaroo gives in.) (Sour Kangaroo: Deal.) (Vlad: Yes! Score! Thanking you. You won't regret.) (He flies off, laughing maniacally.)

(Venom swings through the city in search of Spider-Man, but Sandman knocks him down with a hammer.) (Sandman: End of the line, Spider-Man.) (Sandman pulls back his fist. Venom bares his fangs, roaring, then hops onto a wall.) (Venom: I want him dead too, Flint. That's why I've been looking for ya.) (He slithers closer to Sandman as he speaks.) (Venom: Oh, yeah. I know all about you, like the fact that Spider-Man...won't let you help your poor daughter. It's just doesn't seem right to me. Look. I wanna kill the spider. YOU wanna kill the spider. Together, he doesn't stand a chance. Interested?) (Sandman: Yeah.)
~ Venom making a deal with Sandman to kill Spider-Man and take his revenge.
I know what you're thinking right now. Of all the ways you'd like to kill me. But that would require you out-thinking me. And no-one, nothing, is smarter than the Krang! (tickles Shredder with one of his tentacles) I'm sorry, did I get a little tentacle mucus in your eyes, Shredder? (puts him down) (Shredder: So you know my name. Why am I here?) Because you and your buddy Dr Stockman found something of mine. The teleportation device. (Shredder: The teleport was supposed to break me out of prison.) But it is capable of so much more. That device is part of a machine called the Arc Capacitator. Years ago, I launched the Arc Capacitator to Earth's dimension. But upon entering your atmosphere, it broke apart into three pieces. You and Stockman have one piece. Another is in a museum in New York. The third is in the Brazilian rainforest. Collect the other two pieces. Dr Stockman should be inventive enough to reassemble the Arc Capacitator. It will open a portal through which I can bring my war machine, the Technodrome, to Earth. Together, we can bring the people of your planet to their knees. (Shredder: I'm interested. I will help you take down planet Earth if you help me with my problem. Four brothers will try to stop me. Turtles.) I'm aware of your past. Take this. (holds out a purple mutagen vial, and Shredder takes it.) It will solve all your problems with those pests. I'll see you on the other side. (another portal opens, taking Shredder through, then vanishes.)
~ Krang bargaining with Shredder.
(In Gaston's tavern, Gaston and Lefou are sitting at a table with Monsieur D'Arque.) (Monsieur D'Arque: I don't usually leave the asylum in the middle of the night, but he said you'd make it worth my while.) (Gaston tosses a bag of coins on the table. D'Arque scratches his chin with one.) (Monsieur D'Arque: Ah...I'm listening.) It's like this: I got my heart set on marrying Belle, but she needs a little...persuasion. (Lefou [chuckles]: Turned him down flat!) (Gaston slams a beer mug on his head.) Everyone knows her father's a lunatic. He was in here tonight, raving about a beast in a castle. (Monsieur D'Arque: Maurice is harmless.) The point is, Belle would do anything to keep him from being locked up. (Lefou, pulling the mug off his nose: Yeah, even marry HIM.) (Gaston glares at LeFou and raises his arm to swat him, and LeFou ducks back under the bear mug.) (Monsieur D'Arque: So you want me to throw her father into the asylum unless she agrees to marry you?) (Gaston smiles maliciously and LeFou nods.) (Monsieur D'Arque: Oh, that is despicable. (He laughs with evil glee.) I LOVE IT!)
~ Gaston bargaining with Monsieur D'Arque that he'll lock Belle's father in the asylum unless she marries him.
(Sneaking around the Snuggly Duckling, Mother Gothel hears coughing and pulls out her knife. She walks closer and closer to the trapdoor, where the Stabbington Brothers, soaking wet, pop out. Gothel backs behind a rock.) (Stabbington Brother: I'll kill him. I'll KILL that Rider!) (Gothel hears this and steps out of hiding.) (Stabbington Brother: We'll turn him over to the kingdom, get back the crown... Come on!) (A voice rings out.) (Mother Gothel: Or...) (The brothers turn around. It's Gothel, standing over them with the satchel.) (Mother Gothel: Perhaps you want to stop acting like wild dogs chasing their tails and think for a moment?) (She holds up the bag.) (The Stabbington Brothers pull out their swords. Gothel chuckles.) (Mother Gothel: Please, there's no need for that.) (She tosses them the satchel and they fight over it, pulling out the crown. They laugh maliciously.) (Mother Gothel: Well, if that's all you desire, then be on your way. I WAS going to offer you something worth one THOUSAND crowns, would have made you rich beyond belief, and that wasn't even the best part. Oh, well, ce la vie. Enjoy your crown.) (She steps away, and then...) (Stabbington Brother: What's the BEST part?) (Mother Gothel, holding up Flynn Rider's reward poster: It comes with revenge on Flynn Rider.) (As soon as they hear this, the brothers smile evilly.

(Outside the amusement park, which is now closed, Fred, Velma, and Daphne are searching for Shaggy and Scooby-Doo.) (Fred: Shaggy! Scooby! Huh. Guess they're not here, either.) (Daphne: This place is deserted.) (Daphne turns around, but Velma grabs her shoulder. She turns around.) (Velma: Not quite. Look!) (She points to Krudsky's tent, which is bathed in an eerie green light, shaking, and releasing a powerful gust of wind. The three friends peek inside and notice Krudsky levitating in front of a huge mirror, laughing wickedly.) (Krudsky: Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the most dreadful goblin of all?) (A dark, menacing image appears in the mirror. It's the Goblin King in all his glory - glowing red eyes and all.) (Goblin King: What wizard DARE disturb the great Goblin King?) (Fred, Velma, and Daphne gasp at the scary sight.) (Krudsky: Greetings, Your Royal Awfulness. The Amazing Krudsky, at your service.) (He takes off his hat and bows, but the Goblin King is not happy.) (Goblin King: Foolish mortal! To what's purpose do you summon the ruler of the Goblin Hordes?) (Krudsky: Say hello to my little fairy friend.) (The evil magician pulls out the imprisoned Fairy Princess Willow and holds her up. The mighty goblin gasps.) (Goblin King: Fairy Princess Willow?!) (Daphne, with a gasp: Jeepers! A real-life fairy! Maybe Krudsky's magic is real after all!) (Velma: But that's imp-possible! Rational mind...shutting down.) (She topples over like a tree and faints; Fred catches her. The Goblin King glares at Krudsky, his eyes burning like torches.) (Goblin King: What loathsome trickery is this?) (Krudsky: No tricks. Only a trade. Meet me at the clock tower, midnight-ish. THEN I shall release her to you in return for your Goblin Scepter.) (Goblin King, enraged: Most foul and wicked wizard! You tempt powers beyond your grasp! (he growls) You shall regret this.) (With a whirl of black, the Goblin King vanishes. Krudsky laughs maniacally.) (Krudsky: Soon, all the powers of Halloween shall be MINE! And then I'll show that scruffy slacker, and his mangy mutt Scooby-Doo, a magic trick they'll NEVER forget.) (With a wicked laugh, he flies out of the tent with Willow in tow.)

(Harry enters the chamber where Max is being held and cancels his sedation shot) Harry Osborn: Psst. I'm gonna get you out of here, alright? But we don't have much time. Electro/Max Dillon: Who are you? Harry Osborn: I'm Harry Osborn. I want to make you a deal. Electro/Max Dillon: I should kill you. Harry Osborn: Come on. Think bigger, Max. I'm not the one you want, you want Spider-Man. And I can give him to you. But I need something first. I need you to get me into OsCorp. Electro/Max Dillon: Get you in? You own it. Harry Osborn: Uh...not anymore. OsCorp betrayed us both, so I can't get in there without you and you can't get out of here without me. (Dr. Ashley Kafka: What's happening?) (Ravencroft Guard: Someone pulled an alarm in the ISO unit.) (Dr. Ashley Kafka: Get a containment team in there now.) Electro/Max Dillon : You can't possibly know what I want. Harry Osborn: You submitted a design for the grid and they stole it, and now you want it back. You just wanna take what's yours. Electro/Max DillonMax Dillon: How? Harry Osborn: It is all within the city, Max, and it's right at your fingertips. Once you shut down the grid, Spider-Man will come to you, and I want you to make him bleed! (a team of guards rush towards the chamber) (Ravencroft Guard: Break it! Break it! (they break the windows) Harry Osborn: Max, we don't have much time! (the team of guards run down the chamber) (Ravencroft Guard: Go, go, go, go!) Electro/Max Dillon: Give me one reason why I should I trust you? Harry Osborn: Because I need you! Electro/Max Dillon: You need me? Harry Osborn: Yes, I need you. You are my only chance that I have at surviving. Electro/Max Dillon: You need me? Harry Osborn: Yes, I need you! I need you, please! Please, I need you! (the guards rush into the chamber and grab hold of Harry and try to drag him away) Please! I know what it's like to be thrown away! Please, Max! I need you! I need you! (at that moment Electro/Max uses his electric power to escape his bondage and to take down the guards, then uses his power to electrocute Kafka and straps him in the same bondage that was holding him ready to be tested on) Electro/Max Dillon: You want to be my friend? Harry Osborn: I thought we were already friends. Electro/Max Dillon: I had a friend once. It didn't work out. Harry Osborn: Me neither. Electro/Max Dillon: Then let's go catch a spider.
