Labyrinth Speech

January 19, 2012
Love sucks. As if we haven’t been in the same place. Maybe that’s why I love this scene even more as years go on. So here it is, the final scene between The Goblin King and Sarah in Labyrinth.
: Sarah, beware. I have been generous up ‘til now. I can be cruel.
: Generous? What have you done that’s generous?
: Everything! Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken. I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for you! I am exhausted from living up to your expectations of me. Isn’t that generous?
Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City. For my will is as strong as yours, and my king…
Stop! Wait. Look Sarah. Look what I’m offering you. Your dreams.
: And my kingdom as great.
I ask for so little. Just let me rule you and you can have everything that you want.
Sarah: Kingdom as great. Damn! I can never remember that line.
Jareth: Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave.
Sarah: You have no power over me.
