Memorable Monologue: Labyrinth


"Once upon a time, there was a beautiful young girl whose stepmother always made her stay home with the baby. And the baby was a spoiled child, and wanted everything to himself, and the young girl was practically a slave. But what no one knew is that the king of the goblins had fallen in love with the the girl, and he had given her certain powers. So one night, when the baby had be particularly cruel to her, she called on the goblins for help!

'Say the right words,' the goblins said, "and we'll take the baby to the castle, and you will be free!" But the girl knew, that the Goblin King would keep the baby in his castle for ever and ever and ever, and turn it into a goblin! And so the girl suffered in silence. Until one day, when she was tired from a day of housework, and she was hurt by the harsh words of her stepmother, and she could no longer stand it..."

~ Jennifer Connelly as Sarah in Labyrinth (1986)

An awesome movie, I still get a kick out of watching it. Pretty creepy scene where that monologue takes place too. My favourite bit is the MC Escher-esque stairs for the song "Within You". So awesome.
