Unless you're afraid.



The job pays two dollars.

Take it or leave it.



I'll take it.

[ Mumbling ]



I knew you were gonna be

your annoying little self, Sid.



So I rigged up

a little surprise for ya.




And so you don't get lonely--



Now, that right there is the most poisonous

spider in the whole world.



If you knock that glass over,

she's gonna be pretty angry.



'Course, it could just be

a little harmless fruit spider.



But, only one way

to find out, right?



[ Man ]

Howdy, boys.!



- Hey, Muff.

- Yeah, hey, Muff.



Where are you headed

this hour of the night?

As far away

as they could.



Come on.



Don't let me stop you.



Hey, when ya comin' back?

Tom! Tom!






[ Gagging ]



[ Coughing ]



[Joe, Ben ]

If it hadn't been for... whoever it was,

you'd have been a goner.



- Town?

- Town. Come on.



Bye, Tom.



[ Grunting ]



[ Thumping ]



[ Sighs ]

Mornin', everybody. What's for breakfast?



Well, you can start...

with this.






Couldn't I just have

some scrambled eggs?



Tom, I have a notion

to skin you alive.



Sneaking out 'til all hours!

Worrying a body to death!



Yeah. Shall I get

the switch?



I swore to your mama, my own sister,

on her deathbed that I would raise you proper.



- And you're doin' a fine job.

- No.



I know I am not doing

my duty by you.



- I'll get the switch.

- No!



I'll just be obliged

to make you work tomorrow.




Couldn't I just take a whippin'?



I have got to do something,

and I ain't got the heart to hit you.



Now sit.

Are you feeling okay, Tom?



Hi, Billy. I was havin' so much fun,

didn't even hear you comin'.



- Fun?

- Whitewashin' this here fence.



Nah. That ain't fun.

That's work.



Billy, if this was work,

would I be doin' it?



Ain't every day a boy gets

to whitewash a fence.



- Say, Tom?

- Hmm?



Let me whitewash a little?



Aunt Polly's awful particular

about this fence.



Just a little.



I'd like to help you out, Bill.

Honest Injun.



But if you were to tackle this here fence,

and anything was to happen to it--



I'll be real careful.



What'll you give me?






Oop! Oooh!

[ Groans, Coughs ]






You're back! Where'd you go?

Where've you been?



Well, I'm a traveler.



I go lots of places.



Go upriver, downriver.

No place particular.



I'm bound to pass

through here sometime.



You're the one who pulled me out

the other night.



I felt like a swim.



Come on.

I'll show you my place.



So how long

you been livin' here, Huck?



About a month.



- A month, huh?

- Uh-huh.









Last week, Aunt Polly whupped me for swipin'

a pie that was coolin' on the windowsill.



But it wasn't me.

Figured it was Sid.



- He wanted it, but I beat him to it.

- I oughta punch you in the nose.



You're welcome to try.



Maybe later.



So, when you're not stealin' food

and savin' folks from drownin'...



- what do you do all day?

- Whatever I want.



Sure are lucky.



Yep. I'm a free man.



Go wherever I want when I wanna go there,

do whatever I want when I want to do it.



It's as simple as that.



[ Snaps Fingers ]



It's good to see ya.



What's that for?



It's what friends do.



We friends?



It's up to you.



If your Aunt Polly

catches you and me...



she'll whup you

from here to St. Louis.



This has nothin' to do with her.

We was friends before. Don't you remember?



Yeah, I guess we were.



Now we're friends again.



Yeah, I guess we are.



[ Man ]

We won't do it again, will we?



- Will we? I can't hear you.

- Uh-uh.



Thomas Sawyer!



Sorry I'm late for school,

Mr. Dobbins.



Well, what's your excuse

this time?



I stopped to talk

with Huckleberry Finn.



[ Class Gasping ]



Thomas Sawyer!



That is the most

astounding confession...



I have ever had

to listen to.



- Yes, sir.

- You are not unaware...



that it is forbidden

to converse with that...



idle wastrel?



No, sir.

I-I mean, yes, sir.



- You know, of course,

that I shall have to punish you.

- Oh, no.



No, Mr. Dobbins, please.

You wouldn't make me sit with the girls.



[ Students Giggling ]



Once again,

Thomas Sawyer...



you have outsmarted yourself.

[ Chuckling ]



[ Giggling ]



Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh.



Grade seven's green book.



[ Moans ]



"A Missouri Maiden's Farewell

to Alabama. '"



"Alabama, good-bye.

I love thee well.



""For yet, for a while

do I leave thee now.



""Sad? Yes.



""Sad thoughts of thee

my heart doth swell...



""and burning recollections

from my brow.



""For I have wandered through...



""thy flowery woods.



""Have roamed and read here

Tallapoosa's stream.



Have listened

to Tallahassee's--'"



- [ Bell Ringing ]

- [ Mr. Dobbins ] Who belongs to this peach?



Becky Thatcher,

do you belong to this peach?



You will not abandon unconsumed food

in my school. Do you hear?



- Whoa!

- [ Water Splashes ]




Hello, Huck.



Hello, yourself,

and see how you like it.



Whatcha doin' here?



Lookin' for jackasses.



Under a bridge?



- I found one, didn't I? [ Laughing ]

- [ Laughing ]



You gonna let her

do that to you?



It's 'cause she likes me.



- She pushes you off a bridge

'cause she likes you?

- Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.



I think

you're both crazy.



Hey, Huck, what you got

in the sack?



A dead cat.



Wagon run over him.

Guts come out both ends.



[ Coughs ]

What's a dead cat good for?



To cure warts with.



I got one.

How's it work?



You take your dead cat to the graveyard

on the day somebody wicked's been buried.



When the devil comes,

you heave your dead cat at him and say...



""Devil follow corpse.

Cat follow devil.



Warts follow cat.

I'm done with you.''



- That'll fetch any wart.

- Sounds right.



- So when you gonna try?

- Tonight.



Let me go with ya, Huck.



You might get scared.



I ain't scared of nothin'.



[ Wolf Howling ]



[ Huck Making

Eerie Sounds ]



Dead seems kinda lively tonight,

don't they?






[ Doc Robinson ]

Be careful.!






[ Mumbling ]



- [ Huck ] Who are they?

- [ Tom ] The two on the right ain't so bad.



The skinny one's Doc Robinson,

and the fat one's Muff Potter.



Muff wouldn't hurt a fly.

That third fellow there?



- That's Injun Joe.

- Injun Joe?



You know him?



Let's just say

I met him once...



and I ain't in a hurry

to meet him again.



They're goin' for

one of them old graves.



[ Grunting ]



[ Shovel Thumping ]



[ Doc Whispering ]

That's it. That's it.



W-Would it be all right...



if we stopped for a...

a little libation?



- What?

- I need me a drink.



No! Haul it up!

And hurry.



Yep.! C'mon, c'mon.

Pry it up. Tip it over.






One-eyed Murrell? My God!

[ Chuckles ]



Put the coffin back.

Cover up your tracks.



- Hey, not so fast.

- Get your hands off me.



- Gimme that box.

- Doc,Joe, let's talk this over like gentle--



What'd you do that for?

That's just not right.



Is it, Doc?

Come here.



- Come on, now. I got ya.

- It's a treasure map.




[ Groans ]



Murrell's treasure?

Murrell's lost treasure?



By glory, we're rich!



[ Doc ]

It's mine.!






[ Groaning ]




[ Doc Whimpering ]



[ Mumbling ]

What are you doing with that thing?



[ Doc Groaning ]



- We gotta tell the sheriff.

- I ain't tellin'nobody.



Unless you're dumber than I think you are,

you're gonna keep your mouth shut too.



But we seen a murder.



Yeah. And there's gonna be two more murders

if we squeak on Injun Joe.



Killin' us would mean less to him

than drowning a few cats.



[ Panting ]

I guess you're right. We can't tell nobody.



You're damn right.



Just to make sure

you don't change your mind...



we're gonna swear

an oath.



We'll write it down

and sign it in blood.



Our blood?



Unless you wanna go back and borrow some

from Doc Robinson.



You do it.

I ain't much good at writin'.




I lost my marble!



We've got bigger things

to worry about.



Now, would you please

write this down?



- [ Sighs ]

- I'm sorry.



Huck Finn

and Tom Sawyer...



swear they'll keep shut...



about what they seen.



May they drop down dead

if they ever tell a soul.



And rot.



And rot.



Now we sign it.



""H'' is for Huck.



""F'' for Finn.






[ Thunderclaps ]



I'm gonna kill you,

Tom Sawyer.



[ Growling ]









[ Panting ]



Bad dream?



Ow! Mother, Mother!

Tom hit me with a pillow!



[ Excited Chatting ]



[ Man ]

C'mon.! C'mon.! Right down here.



Hey, Tom.!

School's been called off.



- Why? What for?

- There's been a murder.



I didn't do it!

I swear I didn't do it!



- What happened to your face?

- I-I-I don't know, but I swear I didn't do it.



Look what I found!

It's Muff Potter's knife.



- I sold it to him last winter.

- I say lynch him. Lynch him now!



- You've gotta believe me!

- No.



-[ Injun Joe ] I saw the murder.

- [ Crowd ] Hang him up.



Oh. Oh,Joe.

Thank the Lord.



You tell them now.



You tell them--

You tell them it ain't me.



Tell us

what you know.



Yeah, I passed through here

last night.



And I saw Muff and Doc Robinson,

diggin' up that there grave.



[ Crowd Mumbling ]



Then in a drunken rage,

I saw Muff stab the doc.



[ Crowd Yelling ]

String him up!



That ain't the way it happened.

I swear.



We found the map

to Murrell's treasure.



- And then Joe and Doc got to fightin'.

- Murrell's treasure.



You hear that, people?

More drunk talk from Muff Potter.



Murrell's lost treasure

is an old wives' tale.



I know the history

of this entire county...



and I'm telling you

it doesn't exist.



But I seen the map!



I say you're lyin'.



I say

there ain't no map.



- And there never was.

-[ Man ] String him up.!



Who all thinks Muff Potter's

a drunk...



a liar and a murderer,

raise your hand!



[ Shouting ]



I say hang him!



All right, folks.

Let's just hold on here. Now, hold on.



Thank you.



Now, you folks wouldn't be trying

to deny me the pleasure...



of presidin' over a trial,

now would ya?



You all right,

Mr. Potter?



After all, what would be the point

of having a new judge in town...



- if you won't let me judge anything?

- We all know he's guilty.!



- Ow! Hey!

- We all know you're an idiot, Ed Dobbins.



Listen to me,

you pointy-headed ghouls.



Muff Potter may be

the scum of the earth...



but he deserves a fair trial,

and I aim to see he gets one.



Judge, how soon can you

get this business started?



I should be able to start hearin' evidence

day after tomorrow.



Settled. Now, the rest of you good citizens,

you be on your way.



Let the law do its job.

Come on.



Let's go, Muff.



I didn't do it, Tom.

I swear. I didn't do it.



[ Children ] # There's gonna be a hanging

There's gonna be a hanging #



You wanna drop dead

and rot?



Muff s innocent, Huck.

We gotta help him.



We ain't gotta do nothin'.



You'd let him hang

for somethin' he didn't do?



It ain't no skin

off my back.



What if we could get

the map?



We could prove Muff was tellin' the truth,

and it wouldn't make us break our oath.



Only one little problem.

That map is in Injun Joe's pocket.



- Well, if you're scared--

- Why should I stick my neck out

for Muff Potter?



- 'Cause we know he didn't do it.

- So?



- So not doin' anything about it is wrong.

- Says who?



[ Sighs ]



- What if it was you in Muff s shoes?

- It ain't.



- What if it was me?

- If you was that stupid...



maybe you'd deserve

what was comin' to you.



It's not

what friends do, Huck.



I thought

we was friends.



Maybe I don't know

what you're talkin' about.



## [ Humming ]



- Hello, Tom.

- Hey, Becky.



Sorry I pushed you

in the creek yesterday.



You can push me in

if you want to.



I would.

I just don't feel like it right now.



Thank you.



What's the matter, Tom?



Oh, nothin'.



- You can tell me.

- [ Sighs ]



I won't ever tell




[ Sighs ]






This is for you.






You ever been engaged,





How do you do it?



Well, you gotta tell the person

that you love 'im.



Then what?



Well, then you're supposed

to kiss.



- Really?

- Sure.



- You first.

- I love you. There. Now you gotta say it to me.



Turn your face away.



- And you can't tell anybody ever.

- I won't.



I love you.



Well, I... guess everything's done

but the kissin' part.



[ Gasps ]






Oh, Tom, it's, it's--

What is it?



- It's your engagement ring.

- It's beautiful.



It sure is. Why, when I was engaged

to Amy Lawrence, she--



What? You mean,

I'm not the first?



Yeah. But, Becky, that was ages ago.

Two months at least.



- I hate you.

- What?



I hate you,

and I hope you die!



What'd I do?



[ Boy ]

Guys, that's Injun Joe. Run!



This here belong

to any of you?



- Hah!

- [ Gasps ]



- Uh, anybody come to see me, Sheriff?

- Muff, don't be stupid.



Nobody cares about you.

Nobody's gonna miss you when you're gone.



[ Sheriff]

Here you go.



Thank you.



[ Clears Throat ]



[ Sighs ]



Injun Joe's on the move.



What made you

come back, Huck?



I figured if you did it alone,

you'd probably splotch it up.



Yeah, probably.



[ Man Snoring ]



[ Snoring Continues ]



[ Man ]

You better watch your mouth.



[ Arguing, Fighting ]



[ Arguing, Chatting ]



[ Injun Joe ]

Some kid dropped a marble in the graveyard.



- You see this here?

- He's got my marble.






Eh, probably a drunk.



- It ain't Muff Potter.

- [ Laughing ] It's so.



The only stumblin' he's gonna be doin'

is at the end of a rope.



- Shut up--

- [ Clears Throat ]






Yeah,Joe... partner.



[ Man ]

Come on, move.! Let's move.



Watch it. Watch it.

C'mon, hit me.



[ Grunting ]



Nice little pirogue

you got there.



Come on, Lefty.

All right, Lefty.



Get it out.

That's it, that's it.



[ Man ]

Double hold. Now, c'mon.



All right, separate apart.

Go ahead.



I guess we can use

Muff s raft.



Yeah. I doubt he'll be usin' it

anytime soon.



We better hide the raft

and camp out 'til first light.



[ Bird Squawking ]















[ Laughing ]



[ Snoring ]



He's drunk asleep.



Shouldn't be too hard

to get that map.



Yeah. Let's get it

and ""git.''



[ Snoring Continues ]



Ain't ya comin'?



One map don't need

the two of us.



I'll wait here.



[ Snoring ]



[ Twig Cracks ]



[ Gasps ]



[ Groans ]



[ Sighs ]



- [ Snoring Continues ]

- Go.



[ Snorts ]



[ Sneezes ]



[ Pots Crashing ]



Them goddamn wild boars.






[ Sighs ]



You had to sneeze.



- [ Thunderclaps ]

- Muff s raft must've washed away in the storm.



I guess we'll have to take

the long way back to Hannibal.



But I'll tell ya, your ol' aunt's gonna tar

the head off of you...



if she finds out you've been out with me

all this time.






- It's the old haunted house.

- So?



Ghosts don't come out 'til night anyways.

[ Sniffling ]



- [ Clanking ]

- Then what was that?



I don't know,

but it's gettin' closer.



Then what are we

standing here for?



[ Door Creaking ]



Tom. Tom.



- [ Creaking ]

- What was that?



They say this place

is haunted.




With rats maybe.



[ Creaking Continues ]



[ Injun Joe ]

Let's go to work.



According to Murrell's map...



it should be

right next to the fireplace.



[ Injun Joe ]

Hey, dig faster,you stinkin'hog.



I'm doin'all the work.



That's a damn lie!

I'm diggin' like a chick on the beach.



- Move over.

- Ahh!



Quit your bellyachin'

and dig.



- [ Emmett ] You sure about the fireplace?

- Ain't that what I said?



[ Emmett ] Well, if it's the right place,

he sure buried it deep.



- I'm halfway to China.

-Just keep diggin!



You see?

Right here.






I think I found somethin'.

Great snakes!



[ Screaming ]



[ Screaming ]

I gotta get outta here.!



[ Screaming Continues ]



Shut up.!



You screamin' coward.



That wasn't ghosts.

It was cobwebs.!



Now, c'mon!



[ Emmett ]

Well, no need to hit me.



[ Grunting ]

God, that's heavy!



Go ahead and knock it off.




[ Gasping ]

Good Lord.! Look at you.



You beautiful money.



Hello, Texas

and the good life.






- What?

- We'll wait.



'Til after the trial.

I've got to testify.



Make sure Muff takes the blame

for Doc's murder.



- Where're we gonna keep it in the meantime?

- Number two under the cross.



- Load up. I've got some things

to take care of in town.

- Number two under the cross.



[ Emmett Grunting ]

Look who's doin' all the durn work.



Raining like pouring pigs

on a rawhide. Well--



No more map.



No more Muff.



[ Tom ]

Number two under the cross.



- [ Huck ] If you ask me,

we're better off not knowin!

- Why?



Why? 'Cause we're pushin'our luck

messin'with Injun Joe.



It's the best way I know of

to get killed.



Yeah. They say he's the best knife fighter

on the whole Mississippi.




My pap's the best.



Taught Injun Joe

everything he knows.



Your pap knew

Injun Joe?



They met in jail.



See, my pap was always runnin'

from the law, 'cept when he was

beatin' me like a rented mule.



Anyways, he taughtJoe

how to throw a knife.



He taught me too.



[ Bell Ringing ]



[ Ringing Continues ]



Huck, you hear that?



[ Ringing Continues ]



Them's church bells.



- Nah. It ain't Sunday.

- Oh.



Them's funeral bells.



You're right.



[Joe ]

He sold it to Doug Tanner-- No, wait.



Mickey Douglas got the marble

from his cousin in St. Louis...



who traded it to Alfred Temple,

who sold it to...Johnny Miller.



No, wait. Alfred sold it to--

[ Grunting ]



-Just tell me who owned it last, boy.

- Tom Sawyer owned it last.



But it don't matter now

'cause now Tom's dead.



That's too bad.



I'm so sad.



Yeah, that's it.

Run, fat boy.






Tom Sawyer's hat.



They found it in the wreckage

of Muff Potter's boat.



The mighty Mississippi

claims another life.



And while there's some comfort

in knowing Tom's fate...



-he was so young,just a boy.

- Hey, that's my hat.



- And a good boy.

- It's me.



[ Laughs ]

They think I'm dead. Can you believe it?



Boy, this is the best trick that's ever been

played in the history of Hannibal ever.



They actually miss me.

What do you think of that?



- I don't know. I ain't never been missed.

- [ Becky ] I can't believe it.



I can't believe he's gone.

I wish I could see him just one more time.



- I'd tell him I love him.

- [ Gasps ]



And I'd hold him close,

and I'd kiss him...



right in front

of everybody.



- Hey, I'm still here.

- Huck!



[Judge ]

His spirit...



a bit mischievous.



We have to admit there's a little bit

ofTom Sawyer in all of us.



I know I speak for everyone

when I say...



I am going to miss you.



- [ Mourners Weeping ]

- I'm beginnin' to miss me too.



- To accept this loss--

- How long you gonna make your aunt suffer?



What are you

talkin' about?






[ Crying ]



She does look kinda sad,

doesn't she?



- [ Sobbing ]

- Aunt Polly, please don't cry.



You got all these people

bawling their eyes out for ya.



- Go home, Tom.

- [Judge ] Lord, we'd give anything...



to have Tom back with us

right now.






[ Chatting In Amazement ]



[ Woman ]

It's Tom Sawyer.!



[ Laughs ]



Tom! Tom!

Oh, Tom!



Hello, Becky.



Becky Thatcher!



Now that you're alive

again, Tom Sawyer...



you should set your mind

to being useful.



Ayoung man doesn't want

to waste his time...



foolin' folks and fallin' out

of church ceilings.



She is absolutely right.



- Come on. We're going home.

- Ow! Ow!



[ Tom ] Aunt Polly, I just fell

    feet onto a hard floor. Ow.!



I don't say it wasn't

a finejoke, Tom.



But to keep everybody suffering

while you had a good time.!



Hang you, Tom!

Can't you ever learn anything?



I've a mind to having you whitewashin'

the whole town for what you did.



Shall I get

some more soap, Mother?



I don't know why you're smilin', Sid.

You're next!






[ Clinking Noise ]



- Huck, whatcha doin'?

- I'm packing.



What for?



- It's time to move on down the river.

- Why?



Why? 'Cause it's what I do. I never stay long

in one place. I gotta keep movin'.



- What about Muff Potter?

- We tried. It didn't work out.



But the trial's tomorrow, Huck.

But, Huck--



Look! I don't leave places

'cause I want to.



I leave 'cause sooner or later

they're gonna find me and run me out.



I'm sick and tired of it, Tom.

I'm gonna beat 'em to the punch this time.



I thought we was friends, Huck.



You thought wrong.



I ain't got no friends.

I ain't got time for 'em.



But if I did have one,

I'd want him to be like you.






[ Gasps ]



[ Coughs ]



You lose something?



It-- It ain't mine.



Don't you lie to me, boy!



You know, that is my marble.

Reason I didn't recognize it...



is I lost it two, three months ago

in a graveyard.






fetch me the knife.



I said, fetch!



Give it to me.



You'd like to stick

that thing in me, wouldn't ya?



You'd like to gut me good,

wouldn't ya, boy?



Well, here's your chance.



Go ahead.



I dare you.



You didn't kill me, boy.

Big mistake!



'Cause if you tell anybody

what you know...



I sure as hell

am gonna kill you!



[ Hammering, Men Chatting ]



- Hey, Muff.

- Hi, Tom.



How you feelin'?



Not so good.



They treatin' you okay?



It's an awful thing

that's happened, Tom...



and now

I gotta swing for it.



- [ Hammering Continues ]

- [ Man ] Give her a try.



Maybe not.



I'm innocent.



I didn't do it.

I swear!



I done a lot of crazy,

drunk things in my time.



- But I never killed anyone.

You gotta believe me.

- I do, Muff.



- You do?

- Yep, I do, Muff.



How come?



Well, I know you, Muff.



I mean, sure when you get drunk,

you're awful disgusting...



and you smell too.



But I know

you wouldn't hurt a fly.



Oh... Muff, Muff,

please don't cry. Please.



You been mighty good

to me, Tom.



Better than anybody else in this town,

and I'm not gonna forget it.



I swear I'm not.



Let me shake your hand, Tom.



You'll have to come through the bars.

Mine's too big.



Little hands.



But I know they'd help Muff Potter a power

iffen they could.



[ Aunt Polly ]




Tom? Tom.!



Why, Tom, it's not bedtime

for another hour.



Are you feeling all right?



You don't have a fever.



What's ailing you?



Aunt Polly...



what if you

swore an oath...



promising not

to tell somethin'...



but the something you promised not to tell

needs tellin'?






I guess you can't break

the oath.



- You'd drop dead and rot.

- Not good.



And on top of that,

someone will cut your neck with a knife.



Not good at all!



But if you don't tell,

somethin' worse will happen...



to someone

who doesn't deserve it.



Tom, for as long as I can remember,

you have been nothing but trouble to me.



Most of the time

you are selfish and irresponsible.



But you're a good boy.

You've got a good heart.



And I believe you'll know

the right thing to do.



And you'll do it.



Just follow your heart.



[ Sighs ]

Muff s a goner.



And you're sure...



beyond any shadow

of a doubt...



that this

is the implement...



upon which a transaction

resulting in purchase...



between yourself

and the accused, as vendee...



took place?



I, uh-- Could you repeat

the question, please?



[ Gallery Laughing ]



[ Lawyer ]

You're sure this is the knife...



-you sold?

- Sure, I'm sure!



- Last winter.

- Aha!



Last winter.



And, um,

is the beneficiary...



of the aforementioned transaction

present here today?



If you're askin'me about Muff Potter,

I can tell you that he--



Could you, please...



point out the owner

of this knife?



[ Chuckling ]

Are you blind? He's sittin' right there.



[ Lawyer ]

Say the name, please.



Potter! Potter!

Muff Potter!



[ Witness ]

Everyone knows it's Muff Potter.



Muff Potter!



Thanking you.



That will be all.

Take the witness.



No questions.



[ Gallery Muttering ]



So I went

on up to the cemetery.



I like to sit up there

and watch the stars.



Anyway, I saw Muff drunk.



Real drunk

and in a rage.



And he lifted the knife,

and he stuck it in the doc.



[ Gallery Murmuring ]



Over and over and over.



'Bout four times

he stuck 'im...



'til he was dead.



[ Lawyer ]

Take the witness.



- No questions.

- Mr. Aycock...



I would be obliged if you would at least

pretend to defend Mr. Potter.



[ Loud Chatting ]



- [ Gavel Banging ]

- Order.!



There will be order

in this courtroom!



You may step down.



[ Lawyer ]

Thanking you, Your Honor.



By the oaths...



of honest citizens...



whose simple word

is above suspicion...



we have fastened this crime,

this awful crime...



beyond all possibility

of question...



upon the unhappy prisoner.



Muff Potter is guilty of the murder

of Dr.Jonas Robinson.!



We rest our case... here.



- [ Man ] Well said.

- [ Woman ] That's a gift.



[ Gavel Banging ]



Counsel for the defense.



Do you have a defense?



- Indeed we do, Your Honor.!

- Good.



The defense calls to the stand

Mr. Thomas Sawyer.



Wha-- Whatcha doin'?



Thomas Sawyer,

do you solemnly swear to tell the truth...



the whole truth and nothin' but the truth,

so help you God?



[ Tom ]

I, uh--



- I, uh--

- [Judge ] Tom.



Do you swear

to tell the truth?



- It would certainly be the first time.

- Stop it!



I do.



Then have a seat, son.



Mr. Sawyer, where were you

on the twenty-eighth of this month

at the hour of midnight?



I was in the graveyard, sir.



- [ Murmuring ]

- What were you doing there?



Tryin' to get rid

of warts, sir.



[ Laughing ]



Were you close to the grave that

Muff Potter was digging up?



[ Panting ]

I-- I--






This is a waste

of time.



Thomas Sawyer wouldn't know

the truth if it kicked him in the teeth.



The boy's an outright liar!



I was there!

I saw the murder!



Doc Robinson wasn't stabbed four times.

He was stabbed three times.



He is right!

And I ain't told that to a soul!



It wasn't Muff.



Muff even tried to stop it.



But Injun Joe

took Muff s knife...



and stabbed the doc.



[ Sighs ]

It was Injun Joe.






- [ Gallery Screaming ]

- Stop right there!



[ Man ]

Go get him.! Let's go.!



[Judge ] Tom--

Don'tjust stand there. Go after him.!



All right, all right.



[ Laughing, Crying ]



- All right. He's fine.

- Tom, are you all right?



- He's fine. Sit down. Sit down.

- Oh, my darling!



- Good job. Yes, sir.

- [ Woman ] He's a brave boy.



[ Door Creaking ]






- Gonna do some diggin' without me?

- No,Joe. I was, uh--



I was just gettin' these tools together in case

you come back. Oh, am I glad to see ya!



I don't think

you're glad to see me.



I think you was gonna go

to number two under the cross...



and get the treasure

for yourself!.



[ Yells ]



I wouldn't cheat ya!



That's right.



You wouldn't cheat me 'cause you're

smart enough to know if you ever did--



[ Groans ]



I just might have

to kill you.



[ Aunt Polly ] Injun Joe's far, far away

from here. Believe me, Tom.



And Mary's taking

the flowers as usual.



I'll need you and Sid to carry the jam.

Tom, mind you don't eat any on the way there.



- I ain't goin'.

- You're not going to the picnic?



- Shut your head, Sid.

- Tom, now I know you're scared and rightly so.



But right now you're a glittering hero,

and the whole town'll be wantin' to see you.



It's not your place to be worrying

about that Injun Joe.



I hear a detective came up from St. Louis.

They say he found a clue.



Yeah, well, you can't

hang a clue for murder.



Did you hear that?



- What?

- I thought I heard somethin'.



- Where?

- Maybe...



at the front door.



Well, go see, Sid.



[ Sid ]

One moment, please.!



Oh, Tom, there's an Indian gentleman

to see you.



[ Laughing ]



Tom! Wha--

Tom! Sid!



[ Sighs ]



[ Leaves Rustling ]



[ Gasps ]



[ Panting ]



- [ Screams ]

- Shh.



You scared?



You should be.



Huck, what are you doin'?



- Remember this?

- Yeah. But, Huck--



According to this, you should be dead

and rottin' right about now.



I had to help Muff.



Not helpin' him

would've been wrong.



I know, but--

You swore an oath, Tom.



Don't that mean anything

to ya?



Yeah, of course it does.



It's just--



It just felt like

the right thing to do.



- Huck, it was the right thing to do.

- No!



You swore an oath, Tom.

You swore!



What was I supposed to do, huh?



Just lay back and let Muff Potter swing?

You tell me, Huck!



You know you ain't never been in more trouble

than you are right now!



- Injun Joe's gonna kill you.

- You think I don't know that?



Just don't expect me to stick around

and save your little neck this time.



I don't.




'Cause I ain't goin' to.



Then why'd

ya come back?



I don't know.



To tell you

to be careful.



I've been

to your funeral once.



I ain't goin'again.



[ Sighs ]



Huck! Hey, Huck!



Muff Potter's my friend.



When a friend's in trouble,

you can't run away.



If you go to the crossroads

and you listen to the wind...



it'll tell you all the important

things that are gonna happen

to ya in the next twelve months.



Now,you may be wantin'to tell,

you may be wantin'to fuss--



[ Girls Laughing ]



- [ Gasps ]

- Hmm?



Come back here.

I'm gonna get you!



[ Aunt Polly ]

Tom, don't--Sid, now don't--



[ Tom ]

Come back here! I'm not done with you yet!



I sow hemp seed:

and he who is to be my husband...



let him come

and harrow it.



Look into the mirror,

and you shall see the form of your husband.



[ Girls Giggling ]



[ Man ]

Come and get some pie, gals.



[ Tom ] Come on, Sid.! Come here.

Got another spider for ya.!



[ Sid ]




Hey, Becky.



Oh, no!



- What? What'd I do?

- We're gonna be married.



- Huh?

- You needn't look so disappointed.



I don't like it

any better than you do!



[ Sighs ]



[ Muff]

Every one of'em was dead.



And every one of'em...

was smilin!



[ Children Gasp ]



Well, I run out of stories.



- How 'bout we go look at the cave?

- [ Cheering ]



Come on, boys and girls.

Let's go look at that cave!



[Judge ]

Everybody stay together. No wandering off!.



So he said, ""Me?'"in a silly voice.

So I said--



- Hello, sir.

- This truly is a wondrous place.



- God's own cathedral, Your Honor.

- Well put, Mr. Potter.



[Judge ]

Be careful, Rebecca.



- I will.

- You children stay to the forechambers.



[ Muff]

You heard thejudge. Now, listen to him.



""Be careful, Rebecca.

Stay close to the forechamber, Rebecca.''



I'll go where I please.



I dare ya.



# Ring around the rosie

Pocket full of posies #



#Ashes, ashes

We all fall down ##



It's beautiful.



I've been here a million times.

Satan's Cathedral.



Well, I'll find a cavern you haven't been to,

and I'll name it myself!.



[ Whispering, Mimicking Becky ]

I'll name it myself.



- [ Muff] Come on, move it. Come on.

- [ Child ] I'm here.



- Stragglers, move on. That's it.

- [ Boy ] Good-bye, Muff.




[ Clears Throat ]



- Yeah, that's the last of'em.

- Looks like that about does it.



- [ Chuckles ]

- Here, I don't mind if I do.



I don't mind if you do, either.

[ Laughing ]



Excuse me,Judge.

I was wondering if you'd seen Tom.



He was with my Rebecca. They were chasing

each other around in the back of the cave.



I'm assuming they came out

with everybody else.



What is it, Sheriff?

What's wrong?



I was out makin' my rounds,

and I seen the tavern door open.



So I went on inside, and there he was,

lying there deader than a mackerel.



Emmett. Big ol' knife hole

in his back.



[ Sheriff] Ain't but one man

throw a knife like that.



Look at this one. This one's beautiful too.

I'll name this one.



We call it

Aladdin's Palace.






[ Echoing ]




[ Tom ]










- Hello!

- Hello!



- Hello!

- Hello!



[ Echoing ]




- Hello! Hello!

- [ Rocks Landsliding ]



- Hello! Hello!

- No. No, Becky, stop!



- Stop, Becky, stop!

- Don't tell me what to do!



[ Echoing ]

Tell me what to do.






[ Rocks Landsliding ]



[Judge ] Gentlemen, my daughter Rebecca

and Tom Sawyer are both lost in the caves.



And Injun Joe has come back

to take his revenge on Tom.



Now, be on your guard.

Injun Joe has already killed twice.



The sheriff and I believe that

he will not hesitate to kill again.



Judge? Judge.




I'd like to help ya.



All right, Muff.

Let's go!



[ Shouting ]



This way.



What's this cavern

called, Tom?



I don't know.



[ Both Gasping ]



It's just rock.



- [ Muff]Judge.!

- [ Man ] Any luck?



Over here,Judge.



- What is it, Muff?

- There's been a cave-in.



There are other ways out.

Okay? N-Now--



[Judge ]




I, I think we're gonna be

stuck here forever.



Don't worry, Becky.

I'm gonna get you outta here. I promise.



[ Rock Falling ]



Run, Becky, run!



- Hah!

- [ Becky Screams ]



[ Ripping Sound ]



This way! This way!



Through here.

Through here. Go! Go!



Hurry, hurry!

Go! Go!



[ Tom ]

Becky.! Go, go.



- [ Tom ] Hurry up.

- [ Becky ] Tom.!



[ Becky ]







- [ Panting ]

- [ Tom ] I think we lost him.



[ Whimpering ]



[ Screaming ]



[ Tom ]

It's One-eyed Murrell.



He must've been hiding here

when the army came to get him.



Looks like he got lost

and slowly... died.



Come on.



Please be careful.



- This way, Becky.

- Not so loud, Tom. He'll hear us.



- [ Tom ] Number two under the cross.!

- What are you talking about?



Becky, look!



Go on.

I'm right behind you.



Tom, come on.



Find your father.

Bring him back.



- It's dangerous.

- Hurry!



[ Gasps ]



Looks like I got it all.!

The treasure... and you.!



[ Screams ]






I know you.






You're Pap Finn's boy.









Your daddy was the best knife fighter

on the Mississippi.



Did he teach you?



He taught me.






Then let's see what you got, river trash.

[ Laughing ]



- I ain't river trash!

- Come on!



[ Grunts ]



You got guts, boy!



And in a minute,

they're gonna be on the ground.



Let's see you hit this!






[ Screaming ]



So, why'd

you come back, Huck?



When a friend's in trouble,

you don't run away.



I guess Injun Joe

got his treasure.



No, no, he didn't.



The chest-- I couldn't lift it.

It was too heavy.



I had to dump out

all the coins.



[ Muff]

Here comes our hero.! There he is.!



Gimme your hand.



[ People Laughing, Cheering ]



It's all right.

Come on out.



- Bring 'em over here.

- [ Laughing ] You're a good boy!



Three cheers. Three cheers

for the richest boys in Hannibal.



Hip, hip, hooray! Hip, hip, hooray!

Hip, hip, hooray!



Thank you,Judge.

Thank you.



Young man,

what's to become of you?



Have you begun to think

about your future?



No, ma'am.

I never really much had a future.



Well, you've got one now.

And you best begin!



[ Woman ]

You are indeed our hero, Tom.!



You're a hero, Tom.

You made the front page.!



- Congratulations.

- So proud.



Fine boy, Tom.

Mighty nice.



Hannibal's proud

of our fine young man.



[ Laughing ]



Huck! Hey, Huck!



Hey, who are you?

Well, I think one of us

has lost his mind.



Widow Douglas

I'd take her to the church social.



Church social?
