War's a shameful thing.
Not when a noble cause is taken by those who can make a difference. You made a difference today, Virginia.
Okay. See, my name is John Carter. Virginia is where I'm from.
Where did you learn to jump that way?
I don't know. How'd you learn to fly?
Your ships cannot sail on light in Virginia?
No, professor. See, our ships sail on the seas. Endless water everywhere.
(Stares at him then begins to walk around him) Skeleton structure normal...
What are you doing?
(Continues to study him) It must be the density of your bones. (Spanks him)
Jump for me!
Enough! There will be time for playfulness later!
I want no playfulness from him. I want his help. Explain to me how you do it. If it's a skill, teach it to Helium. Name your price.
I'm not for hire. I've got a cave of gold of my own. Somewhere (Begins to walk away)
Only a madman would rave about the times of oceans!
Is that your expert's view? I'm mad?
Or a liar.
She's a good match for you, Dotar Sojat.
Don't call me that.
There are no seas on the planet.
You said planet...
(as they follow Dejah who is supposed to be taking them to the river Iss) Dotar Sojat. Carter! I do not think she leads us to the Iss.
Alright then, Sola. Just play along.
(Carter rides his lizard-horse creature closer to Dejah and suddenly grabs her rains) What do you think I'd do once I saw your city and not some river?
What do you mean?
Cloras Anthorea, they should be at our backs by now. You lead us toward Helium!
Once we reach there, you would see for yourself the virtue of our cause.
Everyone thinks their cause is virtuous, professor. (suddenly he grabs her stuff and throws her off her lizard-horse creature and he and Sola take off leaving her behind)
What are you doing? No! John Carter! You can't!
(as they pretend to leave her) I like this plan better.
Just wait. She'll come around.
(referring to the symbols they've just discovered) I don't like guessing. I need more information, I need charts, codesses.
(Carter looks at Dejah with suspicion)
Right. And where might we find those?
In the Hall of Science.
And where's that?
(Carter becomes angry, thinking that Dejah is still trying to convince him to go to Helium) Then quick! Let's just head on turn on back to Helium. (Carter grabs Dejah's arm in anger)
What do you take me for?
I take you for a man who's lost!
I won't be lost if you just tell me how to work this thing!
I will! But everything I need to understand the medallion is in Helium. I'm trying to get you back to your cave of gold. Isn't that what you want?
No, I don't believe you. We may have been born worlds apart, but I know you, John Carter. From the moment you caught me in the sky, I knew. I felt the heart of a man willing to lay down his life for others. A man willing to fight for a cause, here, on Barsoom. (Suddenly Carter kisses Dejah, but he has a flashback of his wife and daughter and pulls away from Dejah)
Don't you see? Carter, I fled to find another way. You are the other way. (suddenly they hear Sola calling out to Carter, as they leave the cave they see a tribe of Tharks, led by Matai Shang, shooting at Sola)
(as they are pursued by the Thark tribe, Carter touches Dejah's hand and has flashback to coming home after the war to find his home burned with his wife and his daughter inside)
What are you doing?
(he jumps off the lizard-horse creature) Sola, get her out of here.
I was too late once. I won't be again.
No! No! No! No! (Carter tries to force Woola to flee with the women, but Woola remains, as the Thark tribe reach him, Carter leaps in the air and onto the warriors, with each slash of his sword he flashbacks to burying his wife and daughter and placing his wife's wedding ring on his hand, then the Tharks begin to overwhelm him and Carter disappears under a pile of Thark warriors)
We do not cause the destruction of a world, Captain Carter. We simply manage it. Feed off it, if you like.
(Seeing the carvings in the temple of the Tharks) Can you read it?
It's old scripture.
What's it mean?
Don't rush me. "To those who seek the solace of eternity, may journey down the river through the sacred Gates of Iss and find everlasting peace in the bosom of Issus".
The Gates of Iss.
What if I could take you there?
What if I didn't trust you?
Then we'd be even. I can take you to the gates, to the answers that you seek. A way back to Jasoom.
Earth. So this I can to repay you from getting us out of here. Assuming that you can.
Deal. (Places his hand in front of her. Dejah looks confused)
Go on. Shake it. It's a sign of trust. (Dejah takes his thumb and gives his hand a light shake)
Toxin, derived from a puffer fish, simulates death. (Carter finds the medallion on Matai Shang's body)
You never found the medallion?
No. That's why I'm so grateful to you for bringing me one.
I... I was just bait?
No. You're far more than that. I really do need a protector. That is, if you're willing. (Ned agrees and hugs Carter)
(Carter turns to go into the mausoleum) Oh, and Ned. Take up a cause, fall in love, write a book.
(about to close the mausoleum) It's time I went home.
(he shuts the door, lays down on the body slab, and says the phrase that will return him to Barsoom) Ak Ohum Oktay Weez...
(he sees Dejah saying 'Barsoom' and smiles before repeating the word) Barsoom.
