DialogueEdit

[first lines]
Grand Councilwoman: Read the charges.
Gantu: [reading] Dr. Jumba Jookiba, lead scientist of Galaxy Defense Industries, you stand before this council accused of illegal genetic experimentation.
[The flying spider robot enters the headquarters]
Grand Councilwoman: How do you plead?
Jumba: Not guilty! My experiments are only theoretical, completely within legal boundaries.
Grand Councilwoman: We believe you actually created something.
Jumba: Created something?! Ha! But that would be irresponsible and unethical. I would never, ever… [Experiment 626 appears] make more than one.
[Experiment 626 growls and snarls, then bumped himself in the glass surrounding him. Everyone gasps.]
Gantu: What is that monstrosity?
Jumba: Monstrosity! What you see before you is the first of a new species. I call it Experiment 626. He is bulletproof, fireproof and can think faster than supercomputer. He can see in the dark and move objects three thousand times his size. His only instinct: To destroy everything he touches! [throws himself on his back, laughing]
Grand Councilwoman: So, it is a monster.
Jumba: Hey, just a little one.
Gantu: It is an affront to nature. It must be destroyed! [slams his fist]
Grand Councilwoman: Calm yourself, Captain Gantu. Perhaps it can be reasoned with. [turns to 626] Experiment 626, give us some sign you understand any of this. Show us that there is something inside you that is good.
[626 clears his throat, everyone is surprised.]
Stitch: MEEGA NALA KWEESTA!!!!! [translated "I want to destroy everyone"]
[Everyone gasps, the robot barfs.]
Grand Councilwoman: [surprised] So naughty.
[626 laughs]
Jumba: I didn't teach him that.
Gantu: Place that idiot scientist under arrest!
Jumba: I preferred to be called "EVIL GENIUS"! [leaves]
Grand Councilwoman: And as for that abomination, it is fiord project of a deranged mind. It has no place among us. [to Gantu] Captain Gantu, take him away.
Gantu: [cracks his knuckles] With pleasure

[In Jumba's cell after Experiment 626 has escaped]
Jumba: [chuckles] He got away?
Grand Councilwoman: I'm sure this comes as no surprise to you.
Jumba: I designed this creature for it to be unstoppable.
Grand Councilwoman: Which is precisely why you must now bring him back!
Jumba: What, me?
Grand Councilwoman: And to reward you, we are willing to trade your freedom for his capture.
Jumba: [sighs] 626 will not come easily. Maybe direct hit from plasma cannon might stun him long enough to-
Grand Councilwoman: [interrupting, exasperated] Plasma-cannon granted. Do we have a bargain, Dr. Jumba?
[Jumba grunts in agreement]
Pleakley: B-b-but it's a delicate planet! Who's going to control him?
Grand Councilwoman: You will. [leaves]
Pleakley: Very good, your highness. I, I didn’t quite- [scared] Uh, you're not joking.
Jumba: So, tell me my little one-eyed one on what poor pitiful defenseless planet, has my monstrosity been unleashed?
[Shifts to the oceans of Kauai as the opening titles begin]

[After Lilo Pelekai shows up to hula dance class late, soaking wet, Mertle Edmonds, Elena, Teresa, and Yuki slip in the puddles, one by one]
Moses Puloki: Stop, stop. Lilo, why are you all wet?
Lilo Pelekai: [first words] It's sandwich day. [Moses looks confused; she sighs] Every Thursday, I take Pudge the fish a peanut butter sandwich.
Moses: [still confused] Pudge is a fish?
Lilo: [continues] And today we were out of peanut butter! So I asked my sister what to give him, and she said a tuna sandwich! I can't give Pudge tuna! [whispers] Do you know what tuna is?
Moses: Fish?
Lilo: It's fish! If I gave Pudge tuna, I'd be an abomination! I'm late because I had to go to the store, and get peanut butter, 'cause all we have is...is...is STINKIN' TUNA!
Moses: Lilo, Lilo. Why is this so important?
Lilo: [seriously] Pudge controls the weather.
[Everyone exchanges surprised looks]
Mertle Edmonds: You're crazy.
[Lilo furiously starts jumping on Mertle, angrily punching her in the face and kicking her, then the other girls gather around screaming]
Moses: [picking up Lilo] Please! Please! Everybody calm down! [puts her down; Mertle cries] Girls... [recites "It doesn't matter" in Hawaiian] Shh. Lilo...
Lilo: I'm sorry, I'm sorry! I won't do it again!
Moses: Maybe we should call your sister.
Lilo: No! I'll be good! I want to dance. I practiced. I just want to dance. I practiced.
[Pause]
Mertle: Ooh, she bit me.
Elena, Teresa, and Yuki: Eww!

Cobra Bubbles: [hands his contact card to Lilo] Call me next time you left here alone.
Lilo: Yep.
Cobra Bubbles: [sternly to Nani] In case you're wondering, this does not go well. [pulls the door open hard, letting the nails clatter] You have three days to change my mind.
[Cobra leaves and Nani furiously turns her head fast to Lilo. Lilo then starts screaming and Nani starts chasing her. She furiously tackles Lilo in the kitchen and Lilo angrily licks her sister's arm]
Nani Pelekai: Ew! Lilo!
[She then angrily stops and points herself to the laundry room. She furiously sets the blanket on the floor and angrily climbs up the box. Lilo quietly comes out before getting caught and brought back to the hallway while snarling.]
Nani: [grabbing Lilo's arm] Why didn't you wait at the school?! You were supposed to wait [pounds on floor] bear! Lilo?! Do you not understand?! Do you want to taken away?! [Lilo doesn't answer] Answer me!
Lilo: No!
Nani: No, you don't understand?
Lilo: No!
Nani: "No", what?
Lilo: NO!! [hits the floor, mumbling]
Nani: [frustratingly groans] You're such a pain!
Lilo: So why don't you sell me and buy a rabbit instead?!
Nani: At least a rabbit would behave better than you!
Lilo: Go ahead! Then you'll be happy! Because it'll be smarter than me, too!
Nani: And quieter!
Lilo: You'll like it, 'cause it's stinky like you! [furiously enters her bedroom and angrily slam-shuts the door]
Nani: [furiously screaming] GO TO YOUR ROOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!
Lilo: [furiously opens door] I'M ALREADY IN MY ROOM!! [angrily slam-shuts the door again]
[Both sisters scream into their pillows with the dog barks]

[Later]
Nani: Hey. I brought you some pizza, in case you were hungry.
Lilo: We’re a broken family, aren’t we?
Nani: No. Maybe a little.

[Both Nani and Lilo witnessed the green light, not realizing it was the spaceship, coming towards Earth]
Lilo: A falling star! [the ship crash lands] I call it! [pushing Nani] Get out, get out! I have to make a wish! [trying to push Nani out of her room] Can't you go any faster?!
Nani: [leaning back] Oh, no! Gravity is increasing on me!
Lilo: No, it's not!
Nani: Is too, Lilo. The same thing happened yesterday. [falls on top of Lilo]
Lilo: You rotten sister, your butt is crushing me! Why do you act so weird?! [angrily shuts the door on her sister's head]

[Nani and Lilo are at an animal shelter looking for a pet dog]
Nani: [to shelter worker] We're looking for something that can defend itself. Something that won't die, something...sturdy, you know?
Lilo: Like a lobster!
Nani: Lilo, you lolo! Do we have a lobster door? No, we have a dog door. We are getting a dog.
[626 sneaks out of the shelter, ducked from aiming plasma gun]
Jumba: [off-screen] Ha-ha! So nice to see your pretty face again!
626: Jumba?

Lilo: Hi.
626: Hoo, ha...Hi. [hugs her]
Lilo: Wow!
[Later, Lilo comes back to the lobby with 626]
Rescue Lady: Oh, yes, all our dogs are adoptable... [sees 626; alarmed] Except that one! [runs and takes 626 away from Lilo as Nani pulls Lilo away from 626]
Nani: What is that thing?!
Rescue Lady: A dog...I think, but it was dead this morning!
Nani: It was dead this morning?
Rescue Lady: We thought it was dead, it was hit by a truck!
Lilo: I like him! Come here, boy!
[626 forcefully, against the rescue lady's grip, walks himself forward to get to Lilo as she called him to her, climbing up onto Nani and Lilo's laps]
Nani: [screams and pushes 626 away from her and Lilo; she composes herself] Wouldn't you like a different dog?
Rescue Lady: [a bit breathless] We have better dogs, dear.
Lilo: Not better than him! He can talk! Say hello.
626: Hel...Hel...
Rescue Lady: Dogs can't talk, dear.
[626 narrows his eyes and bares his teeth in frustration]
Lilo: He did.
Nani: Does it have to be this dog?
[626 pants a few times before lolling his tongue out, sticking it up his nose and pulling out a big green booger, eating it, smacking his lips]
Lilo: Yes. He's good. I can tell.
Rescue Lady: [filling out paperwork at the front desk] You'll have to think of a name for him.
Lilo: His name is...Stitch.
[Standing on a chair, 626, now named Stitch, looks out the window]
Rescue Lady: That's not a real name... [Nani shakes her head quickly and waves her hand as if saying "No! Don't say that!"] ...in...Iceland. But here it's a good name. Stitch, it is. And there's a $2.00 license fee.
Lilo: I want to buy him! [whispers] Can I borrow $2?
[With a semi-irritated look, Nani takes the money from the rescue lady and hands it to Lilo. Lilo then taps the money on her shoulder and hands it back to her, handing it to the shelter worker]
Rescue Lady: [stamps the adoption papers and hands the paper to Lilo with a friendly smile] He's all yours.

LILO: "Oh,good.My dog found the chain saw!"



[Stitch grabs Jumba's plasma gun, but Jumba plugs it with a carrot]
Jumba: You shouldn't play with guns.
Stitch: [giving it to him] Oh, okay.
Jumba: Thank you. [hears the gun beeping, realizes it's overloading and throws it back to Stitch] Oh, uh, I just remembered, it's your birthday! Happy birthday!
Stitch: [throws it to him] Err, Merry Christmas!
Jumba: [throws it back] It's not Christmas!
Stitch: [throws it back] Happy Hanukah!
[As Jumba and Stitch play hot potato with the overloading gun, Pleakley grabs Lilo and runs out of the house]
Jumba: [in background, overlapped by Lilo] It's not Hanukah!
Lilo: We're leaving Stitch?!
Pleakley: Trust me, this is not gonna end well!
[Back to Jumba and Stitch]
Jumba: 1 potato!
Stitch: 2 potato!
Jumba: 3 potato!
Stitch: 4!
Jumba: 5 potato!
Stitch: 6 potato!
Jumba: 7 potato, more!
Stitch: My...!
Jumba: Mother...!
Stitch: Told...!
Jumba: Me...!
Stitch: You...!
Jumba: Are...!
Stitch: It.
Jumba: Oh! I win.
[The gun explodes, destroying Lilo's house. One of flying objects from explosion hits Pleakley.]

[after Lilo's house was destroyed]
Lilo: [to Cobra] One of them had a giant eye in the middle of his face.
Nani: [enters the scene] Oh, Lilo.
[Cobra angrily puts Lilo in his car and shuts the car door.]
Nani: [pleading] Please, don't do this.
Cobra Bubbles: You know I have no choice.
Nani: NO! You're not taking her! I'm the only one who understands her! You take that away, she won't stand a chance!
Cobra Bubbles: You're making this harder than it needs to be!
Nani: You don't know what you're doing! She needs me!
Cobra Bubbles: [furiously points at her destroyed house] IS THIS WHAT SHE NEEDS?!?! It seems clear to me that you need her a lot more than she needs you!
[As Cobra about to leave with Lilo, she gets out of his car to look for Stitch.]
Cobra Bubbles: Lilo?! LILO!!
Nani: Lilo!
[Stitch looks a Lilo's family portrait. Lilo then enters the tropic woods, where Stitch surprises her. He hands her portrait to her.]
Lilo: [quietly] You've ruined everything.
[Stitch then reveals his true alien form.]
Lilo: You're one of them? [shoves Stitch away from her] [quietly] Get out of here, Stitch.
[She and Stitch then suddenly gets captured by Gantu.]
Gantu: [enters the scene] Surprise! [cackles his evil laugh] And here I thought you'd be difficult to catch. Ho-ho-ho. Silly me.
Nani: [searching for Lilo] Lilo? Lilo? [gets passed by Gantu, gasps in horror]
[Gantu heads to his ship and puts Lilo and Stitch in his traveling glass capsule.]
Gantu: There you go, all buckled up for the trip. [puts his capsule on the back of his ship] And, look, I even caught you a little snack.
[Gantu gets on his ship and starts his engine.]
Nani: [gasps] NO, STOP!!! [gets blown down to the ground]
[Stitch gets himself out of Gantu's capsule. Gantu's ship then takes off to the sky, leaving Stitch falling to the ground.]
Nani: Lilo...

Jumba: [after he captures Stitch] Ha-ha! Now all your washing is up!
Pleakley: [angrily shows his ID] You're under arrest! Read him his rights.
Jumba: Listen carefully... [starts laughing while beating up Stitch]
Pleakley: Hello? Galactic command? Experiment 626 is in custody. We'll wait right here. [hangs up]
[Nani gets up and sees Jumba and Pleakley.]
Pleakley: [whispers to Jumba] Don't interact with her.
[Nani then slowly walks to them.]
Nani: Where's Lilo?
Jumba: Who? [Pleakley angrily slaps him] What?
Nani: Lilo. My sister.
Jumba: Eh, sorry. We do not know anyone by this, uh--
Nani: Lilo! She's a little girl, this big! She has black hair and brown eyes and she hangs around with that THING!
Jumba: We know her.
Nani: Bring her back.
Pleakley: Oh, we can't do that. Uh-uh. That would be a misuse of Galactic resources.
Jumba: See, problem is... We're just here for him.
Nani: [sadly] So, she's gone?
Pleakley: Look at the bright side. You won't have to yell at anyone anymore.
[Nani then sadly kneels to the ground and starts weeping.]
Jumba: Come.
[Stitch, Jumba and Pleakley turns to leave. But Stitch stops and walks back to Nani to comfort her.]
Stitch: Ohana.
Nani: What?
Jumba: [snatches Stitch] Hey, get away from her.
Nani: [pulls Stitch back from Jumba] No! What did you say?
Stitch: "Ohana" means family. Family means nobody...
Nani: Nobody gets left behind.
Stitch: Or forgotten. Yeah. [pause] Hey! [speaks alien]
Jumba: WHHHHHAAAATTTT?!?!? [grabs Stitch] After all you put me through, you expect me to help you just like that?! JUST LIKE THAT?!?!?
Stitch: Ih.
Jumba: Fine. [releases Stitch from his arrest]
Pleakley: Fine? You're doing what he says?
Jumba: Uh, he's very persuasive.
Pleakley: Persuasive?! What exactly are we doing?
Jumba: A rescue.
Nani: [delightfully] So, we're gonna get Lilo?
Stitch: Ih.

Lilo: Don't leave me, okay?
Stitch: Okay. Okay. [sees the truck, determined] Okay.

David: So, you're from outer space, huh? I heard the surfing's choice.
[Stitch then gets captured by one of intergalactic guards.]
Intergalactic Guard: We have 626.
Grand Councilwoman: Take him to my ship.
Lilo: [angrily] Leave him alone.
Cobra Bubbles: [holds Lilo back] Hold on.
Gantu: Grand Councilwoman, let me explain.
Grand Councilwoman: SILENCE! I am retiring you, Captain Gantu!
[Gantu feels shocked.]
Pleakley: Actually, credit for the capture goes to...
Grand Councilwoman: Goes to me. You'll be lucky if you end up on a Fluff Trog farm after we sort this thing out.
Jumba: Uh, I think I should-
Grand Councilwoman: You?! You're the cause of all this! If it wasn't for Experiment 626, none of this-
Stitch: [interrupting] Stitch.
Grand Councilwoman: What?
Stitch: My name is Stitch.
Grand Councilwoman: Stitch, then. If it wasn't for Stitch- [realizes what just happened, turns back to Stitch]
Stitch: Does Stitch have to go in the ship?
Grand Councilwoman: [shocked, hesitant] Yes.
Stitch: Can Stitch say goodbye?
Grand Councilwoman: Yes.
Stitch: Thank you. [walks over to Nani and Lilo]
Grand Councilwoman: [looks at Nani and Lilo] Who are you?
Stitch: This is my family. I found it all on my own. It's little and broken, but still good. Yeah. Still good.

Cobra Bubbles: [whispering] Lilo. Didn't you find that thing at a shelter?
Lilo: [takes out the adoption paper, and runs up to Grand Councilwoman] Hey! [Grand Councilwoman turns to her] Three days ago, I bought Stitch at the shelter. I paid two dollars for him. See this stamp? I own him. If you take him, you're stealing.
Cobra Bubbles: Aliens are all about rules.
Grand Councilwoman: You look familiar.
Cobra Bubbles: CIA. Roswell. 1973.
Grand Councilwoman: [remembers] Ah, yes. You had hair then. Take note of this [releases Stitch from his arrest] This creature has been sentenced to life in exile, a sentence that shall be henceforth served out here... On Earth... And as caretaker of the alien life-form, Stitch, this family is now under the official protection of the United Galactic Federation. We'll be checking in now and then.
Cobra Bubbles: I was afraid you were going to say that. This won't be easy to explain back at headquarters.
Grand Councilwoman: I know what you mean. [to her intergalactic guards] Don't let those two get on my ship. [leaves]

Gantu: Little savage! Get off my ship!
