This is the story of how I died.

But don't worry, this is a fun story,
and the truth is, it isn't even mine.

This is the story of a girl
named Rapunzel.

And it starts with the sun.

Once upon a time, a single drop
of sunlight fell from the heavens.

And from this small drop of sun
grew a magic golden flower.

It had the ability to heal
the sick and injured.

You see that old woman over there?
You might want to remember her.

She's kind of important.

Centuries passed

and a hop, skip and a boat ride away
there grew a kingdom.



The kingdom was ruled
by a beloved king and queen.

And the queen
was about to have a baby.

But she got sick.

Really sick.

She was running out of time,

and that's when people
start to look for a miracle.

Or in this case, a magic golden flower.

I told you she'd be important.

Instead of sharing the sun's gift,

this woman, Mother Gothel,
hoarded its healing power

and used it to keep herself young
for hundreds of years.

And all she had to do
was sing a special song.

Flower, gleam and glow

Let your power shine



Make the clock reverse

Bring back what once was mine

What once was mine

You get the gist. She sings to it,
she turns young. Creepy, right?

We found it!

The magic of the golden flower
healed the queen.

A healthy baby girl, a princess
was born, with beautiful golden hair.

I'll give you a hint, that's Rapunzel.

To celebrate her birth,

the king and queen
launched a flying lantern into the sky.

And for that one moment,
everything was perfect.

And then that moment ended.

Flower, gleam and glow

Let your power shine

Make the clock...

Gothel broke into the castle,
stole the child,

and just like that, gone!

The kingdom searched and searched,
but they could not find the princess.

For deep within the forest,
in a hidden tower,

Gothel raised the child as her own.

Save what has been lost

Bring back what once was mine

What once was mine

Gothel had found
her new magic flower,

but this time,
she was determined to keep it hidden.

Why can't I go outside?

The outside world is a dangerous place,

filled with horrible, selfish people.

You must stay here, where you're safe.

Do you understand, flower?

Yes, Mommy.

But the walls of that tower
could not hide everything.

Each year, on her birthday,

the king and queen released
thousands of lanterns into the sky

in hope that one day
their lost princess would return.

Well, I guess
Pascal's not hiding out here.

Gotcha!

That's 22 for me.
How about 23 out of 45?

Okay. Well, what do you want to do?

Yeah. I don't think so.
I like it in here, and so do you.

Come on, Pascal.
It's not so bad in there.

Seven a.m., the usual morning lineup

Start on the chores
And sweep till the floor's all clean

Polish and wax, do laundry
and mop and shine up

Sweep again and by then it's, like, 7:15

And so I'll read a book
Or maybe two or three

I'll add a few new paintings
to my gallery

I'll play guitar and knit
and cook and basically

Just wonder when will my life begin?

Then after lunch it's puzzles
and darts and baking

Papier-mâché, a bit of ballet and chess

Pottery and ventriloquy, candle-making

Then I'll stretch, maybe sketch
Take a climb, sew a dress

And I'll reread the books
If I have time to spare

I'll paint the walls some more
I'm sure there's room somewhere

And then I'll brush and brush
and brush and brush my hair

Stuck in the same place
I've always been

And I'll keep wondering and wondering
and wondering and wondering

When will my life begin?

Tomorrow night

the lights will appear

Just like they do

on my birthday each year

What is it like

out there where they glow

Now that I'm older

Mother might just let me go

Wow! I could get used
to a view like this.

Rider, come on!

Hold on. Yep. I'm used to it.
Guys, I want a castle.

We do this job,
you can buy your own castle.

- Hay fever?
- Yeah.

Wait! Hey, wait!

Can't you picture me in a castle
of my own? Because I certainly can.

All the things we've seen,
and it's only 8:00 in the morning!

Gentlemen, this is a very big day!

This is it! This is a very big day, Pascal.

I'm finally going to do it.
I'm going to ask her.

Rapunzel!

Let down your hair!

It's time!

I know, I know.
Come on. Don't let her see you.

Rapunzel!
I'm not getting any younger down here!

Coming, Mother!

Hi. Welcome home, Mother.

Rapunzel, how you manage to do that

every single day without fail.

It looks absolutely exhausting, darling.

Oh, it's nothing.

Then I don't know why it takes so long.

Oh, darling, I'm just teasing.

All right.

So, Mother, as you know
tomorrow is a very big day...

Rapunzel, look in that mirror.

You know what I see?

I see a strong, confident,
beautiful young lady.

Oh, look, you're here, too.

I'm just teasing.
Stop taking everything so seriously.

Okay. So, Mother,
as I was saying, tomorrow is...

Rapunzel,
Mother's feeling a little run-down.

Would you sing for me, dear?
Then we'll talk.

Of course, Mother.

Flower, gleam and glow
Let your power shine

Make the clock reverse
Bring back what once was mine

Heal what has been hurt
Change the Fates' design

Save what has been lost
Bring back what once was mine

- Rapunzel!
- So, Mother,

earlier I was saying tomorrow
is a big day, and you didn't respond.

So, I'm just going to tell you,
it's my birthday!

- Ta-da!
- No, no, no. Can't be.

I distinctly remember.
Your birthday was last year.

That's the funny thing about birthdays.
They're kind of an annual thing.

Mother, I'm turning 18,
and I wanted to ask...

What I really want for this birthday...

Actually what I wanted
for quite a few birthdays now...

Rapunzel, please,
stop with the mumbling.

You know how I feel about
the mumbling. Blah-blah-blah-blah.

It's very annoying!
I'm just teasing. You're adorable.

I love you so much, darling.

I want to see the floating lights.

What?

I was hoping you would take me
to see the floating lights.

You mean the stars.

That's the thing.

I've charted stars,
and they're always constant.

But these, they appear every year
on my birthday, Mother.

Only on my birthday.

And I can't help but feel like
they're meant for me.

I need to see them, Mother.

And not just from my window, in person.

I have to know what they are.

You want to go outside?
Why, Rapunzel...

Look at you, as fragile as a flower

Still a little sapling, just a sprout

You know why we stay up in this tower

- I know, but...
- That's right.

To keep you safe and sound, dear

Guess I always knew
this day was coming

Knew that soon
you'd want to leave the nest

Soon but not yet

Shh!
Trust me, pet

Mother knows best

Mother knows best
Listen to your mother

It's a scary world out there

Mother knows best

One way or another
Something will go wrong

I swear

Ruffians, thugs, poison ivy, quicksand

Cannibals and snakes, the plague

- No!
- Yes.

Also large bugs
Men with pointy teeth

And stop! No more, you'll just upset me

Mother's right here
Mother will protect you

Darling, here's what I suggest

Skip the drama
Stay with Mama

Mother knows best

Mother knows best
Take it from your mumsy

On your own, you won't survive

Sloppy, underdressed
Immature, clumsy

Please, they'll eat you up alive

Gullible, naive
Positively grubby

Ditsy and a bit... Well, hmm, vague

Plus, I believe, getting kind of chubby

I'm just saying 'cause I wuv you

Mother understands
Mother's here to help you

All I have is one request

- Rapunzel?
- Yes?

Don't ever ask to leave this tower again.

Yes, Mother.

I love you very much, dear.

I love you more.

I love you most.

Don't forget it

You'll regret it

Mother knows best

Ta-ta! I'll see you in a bit, my flower!

I'll be here.

Oh, no.

This is bad. This is very, very bad.

This is really bad.

They just can't get my nose right.

Who cares?

It's easy for you to say.
You guys look amazing.

All right. Okay.
Give me a boost and I'll pull you up.

Give us the satchel first.

I can't believe that after all we've been
through together, you don't trust me?

Ouch.

Now help us up, pretty boy!

Sorry, my hands are full.

What?

Rider!

Retrieve that satchel at any cost!

Yes, sir!

We got him now, Maximus.

Come on, fleabag! Forward!

No.

Stop it! Stop it!
Give it to me! Give me that!

Alone at last.

Okay. I've got a person in my closet.

I've got a person in my closet.

I've got a person in my closet!

Too weak to handle myself out there,
huh, Mother?

Well, tell that to my frying pan.

Rapunzel!

Let down your hair!

One moment, Mother!

I have a big surprise!

I do, too!

I bet my surprise is bigger!

I seriously doubt it.

I brought back parsnips. I'm going
to make hazelnut soup for dinner.

Your favourite. Surprise!

Well, Mother,
there's something I want to tell you.

Oh, Rapunzel, you know I hate
leaving you after a fight.

Especially when I've done
absolutely nothing wrong.

I've been thinking a lot
about what you said earlier.

I hope you're not still talking
about the stars.

"Floating lights,"
and, yes, I'm leading up to that.

Because I really thought
we dropped the issue, sweetheart.

No, Mother, I'm just saying,

you think I'm not strong enough
to handle myself out there.

I know you're not strong enough
to handle yourself out there.

- But if you just...
- We're done talking about this.

- Trust me! I know what I'm...
- Rapunzel.

- Oh, come on!
- Enough with the lights!

You are not leaving this tower! Ever!

Great. Now I'm the bad guy.

All I was going to say, Mother, is that...

I know what I want for my birthday now.

And what is that?

New paint.

The paint made from the white shells
you once brought me.

That is a very long trip, Rapunzel.
Almost three days' time.

I just thought it was a better idea
than the stars.

You'll be all right on your own?

I know I'm safe as long as I'm here.

I'll be back in three days' time.

I love you very much, dear.

I love you more.

I love you most.

Okay.

Is this hair?

Struggling... Struggling is pointless.

I know why you're here,
and I'm not afraid of you.

What?

Who are you?
And how did you find me?

Who are you, and how did you find me?

I know not who you are,
nor how I came to find you.

But may I just say...

Hi.

How you doing?
The name's Flynn Rider.

How's your day going?

Who else knows my location,
Flynn Rider?

- All right, blondie.
- Rapunzel.

Gesundheit. Here's the deal.

I was in a situation,
gallivanting through the forest.

I came across your tower and...

Where is my satchel?

I've hidden it.
Somewhere you'll never find it.

It's in that pot, isn't it?

Would you stop that?

Now it's hidden
where you'll never find it.

So, what do you want with my hair?
To cut it?

- What?
- Sell it?

No! Listen, the only thing
I want to do with your hair

is to get out of it, literally.

Wait. You don't want my hair?

Why on earth would I want your hair?

Look, I was being chased,
I saw a tower, I climbed it.

- End of story.
- You're telling the truth?

Yes.

I know. I need someone to take me.

I think he's telling the truth, too.

He doesn't have fangs.
But what choice do I have?

Okay, Flynn Rider,
I'm prepared to offer you a deal.

- Deal?
- Look this way.

Do you know what these are?

You mean the lantern thing
they do for the princess?

Lanterns? I knew they weren't stars.

Well, tomorrow evening,

they will light the night sky
with these lanterns.

You will act as my guide,
take me to these lanterns,

and return me home safely.

Then, and only then,
will I return your satchel to you.

That is my deal.

Yeah.

No can do.

Unfortunately the kingdom and I
aren't exactly simpatico at the moment,

so I won't be taking you anywhere.

Something brought you here,
Flynn Rider.

Call it what you will,

- fate, destiny...
- A horse.

So I have made the decision
to trust you.

A horrible decision, really.

But trust me when I tell you this.

You can tear this tower apart
brick by brick,

but without my help, you will never find
your precious satchel.

Let me get this straight.

I take you to see the lanterns,
bring you back home,

and you'll give me back my satchel?

I promise.

And when I promise something,
I never, ever break that promise.

Ever.

All right, listen.
I didn't want to have to do this,

but you leave me no choice.

Here comes the smoulder.

This is kind of an off day for me.
This doesn't normally happen.

Fine! I'll take you to see the lanterns.

Really?

Oops.

You broke my smoulder.

Are you coming, blondie?

Look at the world so close
And I'm halfway to it

Look at it all so big
Do I even dare

Look at me, there at last
I just have to do it

Should I? No
Here I go

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

That's when my life begins

I can't believe I did this!

I can't believe I did this.
I can't believe I did this!

Mother would be so furious.

But that's okay. What she doesn't know
won't kill her, right?

Oh, my gosh! This would kill her.

This is so fun!

I am a horrible daughter.
I'm going back.

I am never going back!

I am a despicable human being!

Best day ever!

You know,
I can't help but notice you seem

a little at war with yourself here.

- What?
- I'm only picking up bits and pieces.

Overprotective mother,
forbidden road trip. This is serious stuff.

But let me ease your conscience.
This is part of growing up.

A little rebellion, a little adventure,
that's good. Healthy, even.

You think?

I know. You're way over-thinking this,
trust me.

Does your mother deserve it? No.

Would this break her heart
and crush her soul? Of course.

But you've got to do it.

"Break her heart"?

- In half.
-"Crush her soul"?

Like a grape.

She would be heartbroken. You're right.

I am, aren't I? Oh, bother.

All right. I can't believe I'm saying this,
but I'm letting you out of the deal.

- What?
- That's right, but don't thank me.

Let's turn around and get you home.
Here's your pan, here's your frog.

I get back my satchel,

you get back a mother-daughter
relationship based on mutual trust,

and voilà,
we part ways as unlikely friends.

No. I am seeing those lanterns.

Oh, come on! What is it going to take
for me to get my satchel back?

I will use this.

Is it ruffians? Thugs?
Have they come for me?

Stay calm. It can probably smell fear.

Sorry. Guess I'm just a little bit jumpy.

Probably be best if we avoid ruffians
and thugs, though.

Yeah, that would probably be best.

Are you hungry?
I know a great place for lunch.

Where?

Don't you worry.
You'll know it when you smell it.

A palace horse.

Where's your rider?

Rapunzel!

Rapunzel! Let down your hair!

I know it's around here somewhere.

Ah, there it is! The Snuggly Duckling.

Don't worry. Very quaint place.
Perfect for you.

Don't want you scaring and giving up
on this whole endeavour now, do we?

- Well, I do like ducklings.
- Yay!

Garcon, your finest table, please!

You smell that?
Take a deep breath through the nose.

Really let that seep in.
What are you getting?

To me, it's part man-smell and the other
part is really bad man-smell.

I don't know why, but overall it smells
like the colour brown. Your thoughts?

That's a lot of hair.

She's growing it out.
Is that blood in your moustache?

Goldie, look at all the blood
in his moustache!

Good sir, that's a lot of blood!

You don't look so good, blondie. Maybe
we should get you home, call it a day.

Probably better off.
This is a five-star joint.

If you can't handle this place, maybe
you should be back in your tower.

Is this you?

- Now they're just being mean.
- It's him, all right.

Greno, go find some guards.

That reward
is going to buy me a new hook.

- I could use the money.
- What about me? I'm broke!

Get back!

- Mine!
- Ruffians, stop!

- We can work this out!
- Leave him alone!

Gentlemen, please!

Give me back my guide! Ruffians!

Not the nose! Not the nose!

Put him down!

I don't know where I am, and I need him
to take me to see the lanterns

because I've been dreaming about them
my entire life!

Find your humanity!
Haven't any of you ever had a dream?

I had a dream once.

I'm malicious, mean and scary
My sneer could curdle dairy

And violence-wise
my hands are not the cleanest

But despite my evil look
And my temper and my hook

I've always yearned
to be a concert pianist

Can't you see me on the stage
performing Mozart

Tickling the ivories till they gleam

Yep, I'd rather be called deadly
For my killer show tune medley

Thank you!

'Cause way down deep inside
I've got a dream

He's got a dream
He's got a dream

See, I ain't as cruel and vicious
as I seem

Though I do like breaking femurs
You can count me with the dreamers

Like everybody else I've got a dream

I've got scars and lumps and bruises
Plus something here that oozes

And let's not even mention
my complexion

But despite my extra toes
And my goitre and my nose

I really want to make a love connection

Can't you see me
with a special little lady?

Rowing in a rowboat down the stream

Though I'm one disgusting blighter
I'm a lover not a fighter

'Cause way down deep inside
I've got a dream

- I've got a dream
- He's got a dream

- I've got a dream
- He's got a dream

And I know one day
romance will reign supreme

Though my face
leaves people screaming

There's a child behind it dreaming

Like everybody else, I've got a dream

Thor would like to quit and be a florist

Gunther does interior design

- Ulf is into mime
- Attila's cupcakes are sublime

Bruiser knits, Killer sews
Fang does little puppet shows

And Vladimir collects ceramic unicorns

- What about you?
- I'm sorry, me?

What's your dream?

No, no, no. Sorry, boys. I don't sing.

I have dreams like you
No, really

Just much less touchy-feely

They mainly happen
somewhere warm and sunny

On an island that I own
Tanned and rested and alone

Surrounded by enormous
piles of money

- I've got a dream
- She's got a dream

- I've got a dream
- She's got a dream

I just want to see
the floating lanterns gleam

And with every passing hour
I'm so glad I left my tower

Like all you lovely folks
I've got a dream

She's got a dream
He's got a dream

They've got a dream
We've got a dream

So our differences
ain't really that extreme

We're one big team

- Call us brutal
- Sick

- Sadistic
- And grotesquely optimistic

'Cause way down deep inside
we've got a dream

- I've got a dream
- I've got a dream

Yes, way down deep inside
I've got a dream

I found the guards!

Where's Rider? Where is he?

I know he's in here somewhere.
Find him.

Turn the place upside down
if you have to!

Go. Live your dream.

- I will.
- Your dream stinks.

I was talking to her.

Thanks for everything.

I believe
this is the man you're looking for.

You got me!

Sir, there's no sign of Rider.

Maximus!

What's he doing?

A passage! Come on, men. Let's go.

Conli! Make sure those boys
don't get away.

Play it safe

or go get the crown?

I got a dream
I got some dreams

Somebody get me a glass!

Because I just found me
a tall drink of water.

Oh, stop it, you big lug.

Where does that tunnel let out?

Knife!

I didn't know you had that in you
back there. That was pretty impressive.

I know!

I know.

So... Flynn? Where are you from?

Whoa! Sorry, blondie,
I don't do back-story.

However, I am becoming
very interested in yours.

I know I'm not supposed
to mention the hair.

- Nope.
- Or the mother.

- Uh-uh.
- I'm too scared to ask about the frog.

- Chameleon.
- Nuance.

Here's my question, though,
if you want to see the lanterns so badly

why haven't you gone before?

Well...

Flynn?

Rider?

Run. Run!

- Who's that?
- They don't like me.

- Who's that?
- They don't like me either.

Who's that?

Let's assume that everyone in here
doesn't like me.

Here.

I waited a long time for this.

Oh, mama!
I have got to get me one of these!

You should know that this
is the strangest thing I've ever done!

How about two out of three?

Flynn, look out!

You should see your faces,
because you look...

...ridiculous.

Come on, blondie! Jump!

It's no use. I can't see anything.

Hey, there's no point.
It's pitch-black down there.

This is all my fault.

She was right.
I never should have done this.

I'm so sorry, Flynn.

Eugene.

What?

My real name is Eugene Fitzherbert.

Someone might as well know.

I have magic hair
that glows when I sing.

What?

I have magic hair that glows
when I sing!

Flower gleam and glow
Let your power shine

We made it.

- Her hair glows.
- We're alive. I'm alive!

I didn't see that coming.
The hair actually glows.

- Why does her hair glow?
- Eugene!

What?

It doesn't just glow.

Why is he smiling at me?

I'll kill him. I'll kill that Rider!

We'll cut him off at the kingdom
and get back the crown. Come on!

Or...

Perhaps you want to stop
acting like wild dogs

chasing their tails
and think for a moment.

Oh, please, there's no need for that.

Well, if that's all you desire,
then be on your way.

I was going to offer you something
worth 1,000 crowns.

Would have made you
rich beyond belief,

and that wasn't even the best part.

Oh, well. C'est la vie. Enjoy your crown!

What's the best part?

It comes with revenge on Flynn Rider.

You're being strangely cryptic

as you wrap your magic hair
around my injured hand.

Sorry.

Just don't... Don't freak out.

Flower, gleam and glow

Let your power shine

Make the clock reverse

Bring back what once was mine

Heal what has been hurt

Change the Fates' design

Save what has been lost

Bring back what once was mine

What once was mine

Please don't freak out!

I'm not freaking out.
Are you freaking out?

I'm just interested in your hair
and the magical qualities it possesses.

How long has it been
doing that exactly?

Forever, I guess.

Mother says when I was a baby,
people tried to cut it.

They wanted to take it for themselves.

But once it's cut,
it turns brown and loses its power.

A gift like that, it has to be protected.

That's why Mother never let me...

That's why I never left and...

You never left that tower.

And you're still going to go back?

No! Yes.

It's complicated.

So, Eugene Fitzherbert, huh?

Ah, yeah. Well...

I'll spare you the sob story
of poor orphan Eugene Fitzherbert.

It's a little bit of a downer.

There was this book I used to read
every night to all the younger kids.

The Tales of Flynnagan Rider.

Swashbuckling rogue, richest man
alive, not bad with the ladies either.

Not that he'd ever brag about it,
of course.

Was he a thief, too?

Well, no.

He had enough money to do anything
that he wanted to do.

He could go anywhere
that he wanted to go.

And for a kid with nothing,
I don't know, I...

Just seemed like the better option.

You can't tell anyone about this, okay?

It could ruin my whole reputation.

We wouldn't want that.

A fake reputation is all a man has.

Well, I should...

I should get some more firewood.

For the record, I like Eugene Fitzherbert
much better than Flynn Rider.

Then you'd be the first. But thank you.

Well, I thought he'd never leave.

Mother?

Hello, dear.

How did you find me?

It was easy, really.

I just listened for the sound of complete
and utter betrayal and followed that.

- We're going home. Now.
- You don't understand.

I've been on this incredible journey,
and I've seen and learned so much.

I even met someone.

Yes, the wanted thief. I'm so proud.
Come on.

Mother, wait. I think...

I think he likes me.

Likes you?
Please, Rapunzel, that's demented!

This is why you never should have left

Dear, this whole romance
that you've invented

Just proves you're too naive to be here

Why would he like you?
Come on now, really

Look at you!
You think that he's impressed?

Don't be a dummy, come with Mummy

Mother...

No!

No?

Oh, I see how it is

Rapunzel knows best
Rapunzel's so mature now

Such a clever grown-up miss

Rapunzel knows best
Fine, if you're so sure now

- Go ahead, then give him this!
- How did you...

This is why he's here
Don't let him deceive you

Give it to him, watch, you'll see

I will!

Trust me, my dear
That's how fast he'll leave you

I won't say I told you so

No, Rapunzel knows best
So, if he's such a dreamboat

Go and put him to the test

Mother, wait!

If he's lying, don't come crying

Mother knows best

So, can I ask you something?

Is there any chance that I'm going to get
super strength in my hand?

Because I'm not going to lie.
That would be stupendous.

Hey, you all right?

Sorry, yes. Just lost in thought, I guess.

Here's the thing,

superhuman good looks,
I've always had them. Born with it.

But superhuman strength. Can you
imagine the possibilities of this?

Patience, boys.

All good things to those who wait.

Well, I hope you're here to apologise.

No, put me down. Stop it! No!

Let me go!

Give me him!

Stop, stop, stop!

Easy, boy. Easy! Settle down.

Easy, boy. Easy.

Easy.

That's it.

Now sit.

Sit!

- What?
- Now drop the boot.

Drop it.

You're such a good boy! Yes, you are!

You all tired from chasing this bad man
all over the place?

- Excuse me?
- Nobody appreciates you, do they?

Do they?

Oh, come on. He's a bad horse!

Oh, he's nothing but a big sweetheart.

Isn't that right...

Maximus?

You've got to be kidding me.

Look. Today is kind of
the biggest day of my life,

and the thing is,
I need you not to get him arrested.

Just for 24 hours,

and then you can chase each other
to your heart's content.

And it's also my birthday.
Just so you know.

Excuse me. Sorry.

Thank you!

It's for the lost princess.

To the boats!

Hey, Max!

What? I bought them.

Most of them.

Where are we going?

Best day of your life?
I figured you should have a decent seat.

You Okay?

I'm terrified.

Why?

I've been looking out a window
for 18 years,

dreaming about what it might feel like
when those lights rise in the sky.

What if it's not everything
that I dreamed it would be?

It will be.

And what if it is? What do I do then?

That's the good part, I guess.
You get to go find a new dream.

All those days
watching from the windows

All those years, outside looking in

All that time, never even knowing

Just how blind I've been

Now I'm here, blinking in the starlight

Now I'm here, suddenly I see

Standing here, it's, oh, so clear

I'm where I'm meant to be

And at last I see the light

And it's like the fog has lifted

And at last I see the light

And it's like the sky is new

And it's warm and real and bright

And the world has somehow shifted

All at once, everything looks different

Now that I see you

I have something for you, too.

I should have given it to you before,
but I was just scared.

And the thing is, I'm not scared
any more. You know what I mean?

I'm starting to.

All those days
chasing down a daydream

All those years, living in a blur

All that time, never truly seeing

Things the way they were

Now she's here, shining in the starlight

Now she's here, suddenly I know

If she's here, it's crystal clear

I'm where I'm meant to go

And at last I see the light

And it's like the fog has lifted

And at last I see the light

And it's like the sky is new

And it's warm and real and bright

And the world has somehow shifted

All at once, everything is different

Now that I see you

Now that I...

see you

Is everything okay?

Oh, yes.

Yes, of course. I just...

I'm sorry. Everything is fine.

There's just something
I have to take care of.

Okay.

I'll be right back.

It's all right, Pascal.

There you are!

I've been searching everywhere
for you guys since we got separated.

The sideburns are coming in nice, huh?
Got to be excited about that.

Anyhow, I just wanted to say
I shouldn't have split.

The crown is all yours. I'll miss you,
but I think it's for the best.

Holding out on us again, eh, Rider?

- What?
- We heard you found something.

Something much more valuable
than a crown.

We want her instead.

I was starting to think you ran off
with the crown and left me.

He did.

What? No. He wouldn't.

See for yourself.

Eugene?

Eugene!

A fair trade. A crown
for the girl with the magic hair.

How much do you think someone would
pay to stay young and healthy forever?

No. Please. No!

Rapunzel!

Mother?

Oh, my precious girl!

Mother.

Are you all right? Are you hurt?

- How did you...
- I was so worried about you, dear.

So I followed you.
And I saw them attack you and...

Oh, my. Let's go before they come to!

You were right, Mother.
You were right about everything.

I know, darling. I know.

Look!

The crown!

No! Wait, guys!

Let's get this over with, Rider.

Where are we going?

There. It never happened.

Now, wash up for dinner.
I'm making hazelnut soup.

I really did try, Rapunzel.
I tried to warn you what was out there.

The world is dark and selfish and cruel.

If it finds
even the slightest ray of sunshine,

it destroys it.

How did you know about her?
Tell me, now!

It wasn't us! It was the old lady!

Old lady?

Wait. No! Wait!

You don't understand!
She's in trouble! Wait!

What's going on up there?

Are you all right?

I'm the lost princess.

Please speak up, Rapunzel.
You know how I hate the mumbling.

I am the lost princess. Aren't I?

Did I mumble, Mother?

Or should I even call you that?

Rapunzel, do you even hear yourself?

Why would you ask
such a ridiculous question?

It was you! It was all you!

Everything I did was to protect you.

I've spent my entire life hiding from
people who would use me for my power

when I should have been hiding
from you!

Where will you go?
He won't be there for you.

What did you do to him?

That criminal is to be hanged
for his crimes.

- No.
- Now, now, it's all right.

Listen to me.
All of this is as it should be.

No! You were wrong about the world.

And you were wrong about me!

And I will never
let you use my hair again!

You want me to be the bad guy?

Fine, now I'm the bad guy.

What's this?

Open up!

- What's the password?
- What?

- Nope.
- Open this door!

Not even close!

You have three seconds! One...

Two...

Three.

Frying pans! Who knew, right?

- Head down.
- Head down.

- Arms in.
- Arms in.

- Knees apart.
- Knees apart. Knees apart?

Why do I need
to keep my knees apart...

Max! You brought them here?

Thank you.

No, really. Thank you.

I feel maybe this whole time,

we've just been misunderstanding
one another,

and we're really just...

You're right, we should go.

Max?

Okay, Max.
Let's see how fast you can run.

Rapunzel?

Rapunzel, let down your hair!

Rapunzel,
I thought I'd never see you again.

Now look what you've done, Rapunzel.

Oh, don't worry, dear.
Our secret will die with him.

And as for us...

We are going where no one
will ever find you again.

Rapunzel, really!

Enough already! Stop fighting me!

No! I won't stop!

For every minute of the rest of my life,
I will fight!

I will never stop trying
to get away from you!

But if you let me save him,
I will go with you.

No! No, Rapunzel.

I'll never run. I'll never try to escape.

Just let me heal him
and you and I will be together,

forever, just like you want.

Everything will be the way it was.

I promise.

Just like you want.

Just let me heal him.

In case you get any ideas
about following us.

I'm so sorry.
Everything is going to be okay, though.

No, Rapunzel.

I promise. You have to trust me.
Come on. Just breathe.

I can't let you do this.

And I can't let you die.

But if you do then you will die.

Hey. It's going to be all right.

Wait.

Eugene...

No!

What have you done?
What have you done?

No, no, no. Eugene.

No! Look at me. I'm right here.
Don't go. Stay with me.

Flower, gleam and glow
Let your power shine

Make the clock reverse
Bring back what once was mine

What?

You were my new dream.

And you were mine.

Heal what has been hurt

Change the Fates' design

Save what has been lost

Bring back what once was mine

What once was mine

Rapunzel?

Eugene?

Did I ever tell you
I've got a thing for brunettes?

Well, you can imagine
what happened next.

The kingdom rejoiced,
for their lost princess had returned.

The party lasted an entire week, and
honestly I don't remember most of it.

Dreams came true all over the place.

That guy went on to become the most
famous concert pianist in the world,

if you can believe it!

And this guy?
He eventually found true love.

As for this guy, I assume he's happy.
He's never told me otherwise.

Thanks to Maximus,

crime in the kingdom
disappeared almost overnight.

As did most of the apples.

Pascal never changed.

At last Rapunzel was home.
And she finally had a real family.

She was a princess worth waiting for.

Beloved by all, she led her kingdom
with all the grace and wisdom

that her parents did before her.

And, as for me,
I started going by Eugene again,

stopped thieving
and turned it all around.

But I know what the big question is.

Did Rapunzel and I ever get married?

I'm pleased to tell you

that after years and years
of asking and asking and asking...

I finally said yes.

- Eugene.
- All right, I asked her.

And we're living happily ever after.

Yes, we are.
