Zathura Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the Zathura script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Jon Favreau movie based on the Chris Van Allsburg book.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Zathura. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

Zathura Script





Oh, man.



That's it.



Nice grab.



Oh, yeah.



-All right, Danny, your turn.

-What? l didn't get my full turn.



You did. l counted.

That was 25. That's what we said.



-That's not fair.

-lt's exactly fair.



Come on, Danny. Time for your turn,

then l gotta work for an hour.



You know, you're not the only one

who gets a turn.



''The only one who gets a turn.''






All right.



Keep your eye on the ball.

You got it this time. Ready?



All right, that's a good try.

lt was a bad throw. lt's a bad throw.



Sorry. My bad.



Okay. Here we go.

You can do this.



Here we go. Ready?






A deep fly ball to the right field.



Clemente back,

running on his horse real fast.



Can he get it? Can he get it?



Oh, and Milton Bradley with

his dive-and-roll catch.



-Dodgers win.

-You're such a dick.



What? lt was a great grab.









Danny, you should not be using that

kind of language with your brother.



But it's true.



Listen, kiddo,

when l was   years old--



-Six and three quarters.

-When l was   and three quarters...



...catching was hard for me too.



Well, it's not hard for Walter.



Well, Walter's    .



So? He's still better than me

at everything.



No way.

He's not better than you at piano.



l hate that stupid thing.



Someday you're gonna be

really happy l got you that piano.



You'll be at a party,

there'll be a pretty girl--



Like you and Mom?



Look, Danny...


            and Walter

are different people.



He's good at some things, you're good

at other things. That's how people are.



He beats me at everything.



Listen to me, this is important.



You're a very special kid.



That's what people say

when they can't think of anything.



You know how you always

make up games...



...and pretend to be characters?



You have an incredible imagination.



Amazing imagination.

A whole universe of an imagination.



And l use my imagination for a living,

so l know what l'm talking about.



-ls it better than Walter's?




ls my imagination better

than Walter's?



You're different than Walter.



-Don't do that.

-You wanna play catch?



-We just played catch.

-No, football catch.



l have to work for an hour.



-But it's Saturday.

-Tell me about it.



-All you ever do is work.

-Nice try.



-This is so unfair.




Bill, l am so sorry.



l'll call you back in two minutes.

ls that okay?






l have an important meeting

this afternoon.



-l've-- l really have to be ready for it.

-You're going out?



Yes, l'm going out.

Well, l'm going to a meeting.



You're gonna be at Mom's house.

She's coming to get you at  .



We go to Mom's house tomorrow.



-No, today.

-This is a four-day Dad week.



Three-day Dad week.

Four-day last week...



...four-day next week,

three-day this week.



Four-day Mom week this week.



But that's not fair.



-To whom?

-To anyone.



l have to work.



We'd have all the time

if Danny wasn't around.



Well, Danny is around.



All right, five throws.



How do l put this? Let me think.

l have to work.



Dad, l'm ready to play

''Smash Bros.''



You told him you'd play

''Smash Bros.''?



No, l didn't tell him l was gonna

play ''Smash Bros.''



-You're playing catch with Walter?

-He might if you weren't around.



You're so mean.

Everybody wants to ruin my life.



You never keep your promises.



There's only one of me, okay?



l don't like this situation either,

it sucks, is what it does...



...but this is the best l could

come up with.



So climb off my back and give me

about two inches of space, will you?



There are some days, boys,

when you gotta grow up all at once.



l need today to be

one of those days.



Wanna play Chutes and Ladders?



No, you'll cheat.






No, you cheat at board games.



But you can't even cheat at Stratego.



Trust me, you'll find a way.



Hey. Sorry about that.



Oh, no, no, it's fine.



l'm not meeting him till  :  

l can finish by then.



Walter, look what l found.



Those belong to me. Put them back.



But you never play with them.



So? They're still mine.



When did you get so mean?



l'm not mean, Danny.



l'm in fourth grade,

l have a girlfriend.



You know how Dad said

we have to grow up?



Well, this is what it looks like.



Can we please play ''Army Men''?



Copy that.



Sergeant, there is a helicopter on fire.

Let's get it.



The drawings all match

the foam mockup.



-Get back here.

-Let me hold it.



-Yes, red.

-Give me.



Cranberry, right.

lt's whatever color they picked.



l worked from the chits.



Can l call you back one more time?

lt's a small domestic emergency here.



l-- l-- l know. l know.




-lt's not a problem. Okay, thanks.



-Look what he did.

-l was on the phone.



-lt was an accident.

-You're such a baby.



-l'm not a baby.

-You break all my stuff.



-You can't catch a ball...

-That's enough.



-...and nobody wants you around.

-You shut up!



l'm sorry, l'm sorry, l'm sorry.



l'm sorry, l'm sorry.



lt's     minutes to the office.



l have to run off another copy.

l'll be back.



You're gonna leave us alone

in this creepy old house?



-lt's not creepy, it's old.

-l like Mom's better.



Well, so did she, and now it's hers.



Look, this is a very special house.



The reason l'm working to fix it up

is l wanna make a home for us here.



Now, l know it's not Mom's house,

and l know it's a little creaky...



...but give it some time,

it's gonna grow on you.



Well, l don't wanna stay here alone.



Well, you're not gonna be alone.

l'm going to wake up Lisa.



-No, don't wake up Lisa.

-What, are you crazy?



She's sleeping. Let her sleep.






Lisa. Honey.



Get up.



l need to go out. l need you to

look after your two favorite people.



Come on.



l can't. l have a date tonight.



What time?



We're hooking up at, like,  .



-lt's  .




-So that's six hours from now.

-What's your point?



l need you to look after the boys.



By the way, it makes me uncomfortable

when you say ''hooking up.''



Why? lt's not like it means anything.



-Hope it doesn't.

-lt doesn't. lt's just an expression.



-Hope it is.

-lt is. God.



We never should have

rented Thirteen.



Keep your eye on them. Make sure

they don't burn down the house.

-l'm not deaf.




Dad, okay.

Where are you?



-There you are.

-l said l was sorry.



Don't. No.



-Don't do that, it's not funny.

-You'll be safe here till Dad gets back.



You're just jealous because

Dad thinks l'm smarter than you.



l didn't mean that.



Walter. No. Pull me up. Don't.



What's the matter, Danny?



Not still scared of the basement,

are you?



Walter! No, Walter!



lt's not funny! No!



Pull me up! Walter!

You're really mean.

Yeah, you would, it's for babies.



Walter, this is so cool.

Check this out.



What's Zathura?



-Will you play with me?

-Yeah, you will.



-A card came out.




''Me-- Mete--



Meor sho--



Meeor sh-- sho--''



Read this for me.



''Meteor shower.

Take evasive action.''



What's evasive action?



lt's when you get out of the way.



What exactly am l supposed to

get out of the way of, exactly?



l have no idea.

All it says is ''Take evasive a--''






lt's meteors!



Take erasive action!



Take erasive action!



Danny, in here.



Danny, hurry up. lt's safe.



Danny, come on. Hurry.



Danny, come on, hurry up.



Hurry, hurry, hurry.

Come on. Get in, get in.



This is SportsCenter¨.



SChilling deals no love--



l don't think we should play

that game anymore.



That's weird.



lt only hit the living room.



Wow, outer space.



No, that's just nighttime.



l don't know, Walter.

Night never looked so close before.






Walter, check this out.



-Tell her.

-You tell her.



You should,

she won't freak out as much.



We shouldn't really even be in here.



Dude, we're in outer space.

lt doesn't matter.



Then you wake her.









Lisa. Lisa--



-Go away.

-Lisa, you gotta get up.



What's the rule about

being in my room?



We're not allowed in

unless it's an emergency.



And what's the emergency?



There was a meteor shower

and everything got wrecked.



-We can't get back to Earth.

-Okay, shut up!



-Just look.




-Oh, no.

-What do we do?



lt's already dark?

l'm gonna be so late.



-lt's not dark.

-We're in outer space.



l saw Saturn outside.



Lisa, open up.



Shut up and listen to me.



Dad put me in charge

until he got home.



Which means you guys

need to do what l say.



Do me a favor. Go downstairs

and stay out of my face.



But it's an emergency.



-ls the house on fire?




-ls anyone hurt?

-No, but--



-Then leave.

-Lisa, please.



We're really scared. Can you just

watch what this game does?



lf this is some weird joke you guys

are trying to pull, you're dead.



No, it's not a joke.



Here, watch this. Watch this. Here.



-Okay. So wind the key.

-All right.



-So now l'm winding the key.

-Yeah, see?



-And then push the button.

-So l push it?




-Pushing the button.



Then the number winds,

and whatever the number is, like nine.



Then your ship-- The blue ship...



...because the red ship is mine,

and l got a five.



So then it goes to nine,

which would be that thing.



-All right.

-Then the card's gonna pop out.



-The card.

-The card.



-The card!

-The card!



-The card.

-Here's the scary part.



''You're promoted to

a starship captain.



Move ahead two spaces.''






-Lisa, no, no! Lisa!

-No, wait, Lisa!



Wait, that one didn't count.

Let me go. Let me go. Here. Okay.



lt's stuck.



Maybe we have to take turns.



See? lt was my turn.




-Yeah, four.






What the heck does that mean?






Does ''cryonic'' mean ice?









l killed her.



You didn't kill her.



She's frozen in cryonic sleep.



l gotta melt her.



Are you crazy?



We can't just leave her here

like this.



Maybe we should read

the instructions.




Attention, space adventurers.



Zathura awaits.



Do you have what it takes

to navigate the galaxy?



lt's not for the faint of heart.



For once you embark

upon your journey...



...there's no turning back

until Zathura's reached.



Pieces reset

at the end of each game.



Play again and again

for different adventures.''



That's it. We gotta keep playing.



l'm not playing that thing.



Yes, we are.

lt says we go home if we win.



lt-- lt didn't say that.



Yes, it did. ''Pieces reset

at the end of each game.''



That means we go home

when we're finished.



All l know is that when we play

this game, bad things happen.



All l know is that when l played,

l got promoted.



So l'm gonna win this

and get us home.



-Wait, can we stop--?

-Don't be a baby.



l'm not a baby.



Look, eight, l'm halfway there.



What does that mean?



Means my robot's broken.



But you don't even have a robot.









That's your robot?



-At least l got one.

-Well, what does it do?



Anything l want.

Get me a juice box, beyotch.



-Don't do that.

-Why not? lt's my robot.



-You might make it mad.

-lt's   inches tall.



l'll punt it across the room.

My robot, the card says.



l never said it wasn't your robot.

You don't have to be such a jerk.



Dude, you're just jealous

l have a robot and you don't.



-Why would l want--?







Alien life form¨.



Must destroy¨.



Walter, l think he's talking

about you.



Alien life form¨.



Must destroy¨.



Danny, take your turn.



-There's no key.

-Find it.



Take it, take it. Come on, hurry.



Take your turn!



Why didn't you go?

l could have been killed.



l was scared. But it's okay,

he's gone, isn't he?



Danny, take your turn.



-Danny, give me the card.

-lt's still moving.



Hurry up, Danny.



The card.



What did the card say?















-What happened?

-lt's Lisa.



ls she okay?



Walter, do you think she's okay?



l guess. She's still in one piece.



What happened to the robot?



What are you doing?



l think it's dead.



Get up here.



Do you think the door

will hold the robot?









Yeah, once he fixes himself,

we're screwed.



He's fixing himself?



How should l know?



Looks about right.



You think she's okay?



l don't wanna be here

when she wakes up.



Where are you going?



Taking my turn.



Are you crazy?

That thing's messed up.



''You're promoted to fleet admiral.

Move ahead four spaces.''



-Okay, your turn.

-l'm not playing.



-What are you doing?

-Making mac and cheese.



There's no water, dummy,

we're in outer space.



Why are you doing that?



Because l'm hungry and l know

you're not gonna take care of me.



Don't bother, the gas won't work.



Any more advice?



You've gotta turn it up more.



Can we at least talk about this?



There's nothing to talk about,

l'm not going.



Danny, l just wanna go home,

and l can't unless you play.



Don't you wanna get home?



What's so great

about home, anyway?



What do you mean? Everything

was great until you came along.



See? You treat me

like everything's my fault.



You're the one who pushed the button

in the first place.



l just wanted to play

a game with you, Walter.



Fine, what do you want?



l want you not to be mean to me,

not ignore me...



...and l want you to treat me

like your brother.




-Do we have an understanding?






Wasn't that easy?






What's a Zorgon?



l don't think it's bad. Just visitors.






Maybe they're friendly.



They're not friendly!



The fireplace. Hide in the fireplace.






Told you l didn't wanna go.

You're the one who made me spin.



There's nothing else we could do.



-Are you crazy?

-Got any better ideas?




What the heck does that mean?



How am l supposed to know?






lt didn't work.



We'll figure it out later.














''Rest on standing AstroTurf.''




-Rest on standing AstroTurf.



-Let me read it.

-No, l know how to read.



-l know how to read.

-Let me read it. God.



What stranded astronaut?



l guess there's gonna be some

stranded astronaut or some--



Did you lock the door?



l don't know.



Which one of you spun me?



-Who was it?




Don't be so quick

to sell out your brother, kid.



He's all you got.



Looks like you got a pretty serious

Zorgon problem.



Yeah, what do we do?







They'll just explode

the whole house.



We're gonna hide the house.



Turn off all the lights

and electrical appliances.




-Yes, you. Go. Do it.






You. Come on,

kill that flame on the stove.






Burning gas. That's probably what

brought them in the first place.



Okay. Now get the pilot light

on the furnace.



What's a pilot light?



ln the basement.

Little blue flame under the big heater.



Blow it out like a candle. Like this:



Walter, the astronaut guy

is wrecking Dad's couch.



Come on.



That's Dad's nap couch.



You wanna help me

get this out of here?



Hit it.



Hit it.



-What's happening?

-Come on.



Take it.



Follow it.



Follow it.



There you go.



That's it.






They're big, gnarly lizards.



Cold-blooded heatseekers.



And the tiniest spark of warmth

will bring them in like moths.



Flying all around the galaxy...



...looking for anything

they could find to burn up.



Why don't they just burn up

their own planet?



Oh, they already did.



That's not even the worst of it.



The real problem

is their ravenous appetite.



They never stop eating.



What do they eat?




-That's good.



Dude, you're meat.



Are you doing this

to keep Zorgons away?






l'm doing this because l've been

eating paste out of a tube for     years.



-This totally sucks.




He's eating all our food.



So? Lupe just went shopping.



How long do you think

we're gonna be out here?



lt could be weeks. Then what?



l don't know.



What about air? How long is it gonna

last before he breathes it all up?



-l guess.

-l'm gonna say something.



No, wait. Walter. Walter.



Dude, that's our food.



Yep. And you're running low

on supplies.



Yeah, l know. You're eating it all.



Well, as l recall, the card said,

''Rescue stranded astronaut.''



Looks to me like l'm the only one

that's doing any rescuing...


            l don't think a couple Dagwood

sandwiches is too much to ask for.



Dog, you're eating it all.



l passed through a time sphincter

to get here.



You realize how difficult that is?



What's a time sphincter?



A wormhole, about yay big:



You squeeze through there...



...and tell me you're not

hungry enough to eat a carpet shark.



Sounds like you got a long trip

ahead of you.



Oh, you telling me to leave?



Well, l mean, once you get

finished eating, yeah.



Oh, l hate to break it to you,

but that's not your call.



He spun me, so it's up to him.



Well, l'm fleet admiral,

and l'm telling you to hit the road.



l apologize, sir. l didn't-- l didn't

realize you were a fleet admiral.



ln fact, l....



l'm a fleet admiral too.



lt's just a card, bug nuts.



Well, he wants you to leave too.



That true, Danny?

You want me to split?



-Of course he does.

-Hey, mouthpiece...



...let him answer, all right?

l need to hear it from the big guy.






Danny, tell him

you want him to leave.



Well, he did help out a little.



Help? He burned our couch

and now he's eating all our food.



You call that helping?



You know what?



l'm just gonna go.

l feel like a third wheel anyways.



l mean, you guys are such a tight,

unified team here.



You're doing great too. l gotta tell you,

the house looks fantastic.



So l'll just get out of your hair...



...and let you guys whomp

some more Zorgon butt without me.






Whose brother are you,

his or mine?



You can stay.



Orders are orders.



Come on, admiral, your turn.



-l'm sorry.

-Shut up.



l think he can help.



Okay. Why haven't

you guys started yet?



We're waiting for you.



Okay, well, l'm here,

so turn that clockwise--



-Yeah, l know how to play the game.




Hang on a second.

Something's wrong.






l was ahead of you.



Somebody must have

kicked the board?



No, nobody kicked the board.



-You cheated.

-No, l didn't.



You cheated.

l knew you were gonna cheat.



-''Cheater's'' a strong word.

-l didn't cheat.



-l didn't cheat!

-Guys, guys. Please.



Bring it down. lndoor voices.

Now, did you move the piece?



Maybe l moved the piece

by an accident.



Okay. lt was an accident.



How can you move a piece

by accident?



lt's stuck to the game.

lt's impossible. You cheated.



No, no, no, let's not use that word.

No, stop saying ''cheated.''



-You cheated! Cheater!

-l didn't cheat!



Come on. Okay?

Now, where did you move from?



l was right here.



No, you weren't.

You were back there.






Okay. Here, careful.




-Okay, it's fixed.



-You're such a baby.

-l'm not a baby.



Slow down. Slow down.



-l'm not a baby.

-You're a baby.



Nobody is a baby here.



-l am not a baby!

-You're a little baby!



l'm not a baby!



Jeez, it won't stop! Please.



Okay, let's play the game.






Won't stop spinning.



-What's wrong with it?

-You broke it.



Oh, look, there's the card.

See? lt fixed itself.



''Caught cheating.

Automatic ejection''?



-Does it mean me?

-Well, you did move the piece.



He's the one who cheated.






Hang on, Walter!



l'll save you.






Wait a minute! l got an idea!



l'm gonna swing

this lamp up to you...



...and you grab it,

and l'll pull you down.



l can't hang on any longer!



Don't worry, l'll get another lamp.



Stand back.









Oh, no.



You okay?



Are you okay?



Get away from me.






Don't talk to me till we get home.



That look cool from down here?



Because up there it was--

lt was pretty intense.



My heart's pumping pretty good.

That was fun.



Can you just play so l can get the heck

out of here and get away from you?



-l told him l was sorry.




Okay, you know what

we need to do?



We need to get

our heads right, okay?



Pull it together. As a team.



The three of us.



You're up, big man. Bring us home.



l got you, buddy. l promise.



-What's it say?

-He can't read.



''Lose map of galaxy.

Go back two spaces.''



l'm freezing my ass off.



Forty degrees? Those savages.



Yes. Nine.



-Good roll.

-Good roll?



-Nine's a great roll.

-l meant great.



lt's gold.



That's gotta be the best card

in the whole game.



l'm almost to the end, look.

A few more and l win.



l hope you win.

l don't care who wins.



-Because you never win at anything.




That's why he cheats,

he can never win.



-No, l don't.

-Yeah, you do.



And you almost got me killed.



-lt wasn't my fault.

-lt's not your fault?



How is it not your fault?

This is all your fault.



Everything's your fault.



lt's your fault Mom and Dad

got divorced.




-You suck.






l get my wish now, don't l?






Don't do it.



Don't do what?



Don't wish what you're thinking.



You don't know what l'm thinking.



Yeah, well, l can tell it ain't good.



Listen. No matter how good an idea

seems like when you're angry...


            never is. You gotta trust me

on this one, Walter.



What'd you wish for?



-l can't tell you.

-Tell me.



You know the rules about wishing.

lf l told you, it won't--



Tell me what you wished for.



Get off me.









The card worked.



Yeah. lt worked, congratulations.



We're stuck in space now forever.



Leave him alone.



What did you wish for?




-You wished for a football?



Signed by Brett Favre.



Why'd you wish for a football?



You could have

just wished the game over.



You could have wished us

out of here.



l was under a lot of pressure.

He was yelling at me.



Why were you yelling at him?



Okay, guys.



Here's the thing.



l've played this game before.



Okay? l played it

with my own brother     years ago.



-You're a player?

-Yeah. Just like you guys.



We were fighting a lot back then.



And when the game started,

it got even worse.



Every time we spun, we got madder

and madder at one another.



And then l landed on the star space.



The same one

that Walter just landed on.



Well, l was so mad at him,

that when the star passed...



...l made my wish.



What'd you wish for?



l wished that my brother

had never been born.



Oh, my God.



Soon as l did it, l felt horrible.



l thought, you know,

if l could spin again...



...maybe l-- l could land on another
