I cannot find the salt.

It was over there a minute ago,

And then, out of nowhere,
the biggest bear you've ever seen!
_________________________________
His hide littered with the weapons
of fallen warriors.
_________________________________
His face scarred with one dead eye.
_________________________________
I drew my sword and...
_________________________________
Whoosh!

One swipe, his sword shattered.

Then "chomp"! Dad's leg was clean off.

A princess should not have weapons
in my opinion.

You'll never guess what I did today.
_________________________________
-Hm?
-I climbed the Crone's Tooth,

and drank from the Fire Falls.

You... She... Elinor?

you're reacting this way.

This year, each clan will present a suitor
to compete in the games for your hand.
_________________________________
I suppose a princess
just does what she's told?

A princess does not raise her voice.
_________________________________
Merida, this is what you've been
preparing for your whole life.
_________________________________
No, it's what you've been preparing
me for my whole life.

I won't go through with it.
You can't make me.

Mother. Suitors? Marriage?
_________________________________
Once there was an ancient kingdom...
_________________________________
Oh, Mum!
_________________________________
Ancient kingdom.
_________________________________
Its name long forgotten,
_________________________________
ruled by a wise and fair king
who was much beloved.
_________________________________
And when he grew old he divided
the kingdom among his four sons,
_________________________________
that they should be the pillars
on which the peace of the land rested.
_________________________________
But the oldest prince
wanted to rule the land for himself.
_________________________________
He followed his own path
and the kingdom fell
_________________________________
to war, and chaos and ruin.
_________________________________
That's a nice story.
_________________________________
It's not just a story, Merida.
_________________________________
Legends are lessons.
They ring with truths.
_________________________________
Och, Mum.
_________________________________
I would advise you
to make your peace with this.
_________________________________
The clans are coming
to present their suitors.
_________________________________
-It's not fair.

It's marriage.

didn't go too well, then?

giving you everything we never had.
_________________________________
I ask you, what do you expect us to do?
_________________________________
Call off the gathering.
Would that kill them?
_________________________________
You're the queen.
_________________________________
You can just tell the lords
the princess is not ready for this.
_________________________________
In fact, she might not ever be ready
for this, so that's that.
_________________________________
Good day to you. We'll expect your
declarations of war in the morning.
_________________________________
I understand this must all seem unfair.
_________________________________
Even I had reservations
when I faced betrothal.
_________________________________
But we can't just run away
from who we are.
_________________________________
I don't want my life to be over.
_________________________________
I want my freedom!
_________________________________
But are you willing to pay the price
your freedom will cost?
_________________________________
I'm not doing any of this to hurt you.
_________________________________
If you could just try to see what I do,
I do out of love.
_________________________________
But it's my life, it's... (SIGHS)

I'm just not ready.

Ugh! This is so unfair!
_________________________________
Ha! Unfair?
_________________________________
You're never there for me.
_________________________________
This whole marriage is what you want.
_________________________________
Do you ever bother
to ask what I want? No.
_________________________________
You walk around telling me what to do,
what not to do,
_________________________________
trying to make me be like you.
_________________________________
Well, I'm not going to be like you.
_________________________________
Oh, you're acting like a child.

And you're a beast.
_________________________________
-That's what you are!
-Oh, Merida.
_________________________________
-I'll never be like you.
-No, stop that!

-I'd rather die than be like you!

A spell that would change his fate.
_________________________________
And did he get what he was after?
_________________________________
(LAUGHS) Yes.

And made off with an especially

it will change my fate?

I didn't know what to think.
Oh, look at your dress.

Oh. Angus threw me. But I'm not hurt.

Well, you're home now,
so that's the end of it.

You made this for me?

Oh. Interesting flavor.

-Different?
-Mm...

Tart and, um, (GULPS) gamy.
_________________________________
Have you changed your mind at all
about the marriage and all that?
_________________________________
Oh, that's better.

Now, why don't we go
upstairs to the lords
_________________________________
and put this whole kerfuffle to rest?

Lost kingdom.

Aye, but it's true.

I know now how one selfish act
can turn the fate of a kingdom.

LORD MACGUFFIN:
Bah, it's just a legend.

Legends are lessons.
_________________________________
They ring with truths.
_________________________________
Our kingdom is young.
_________________________________
Our stories are not yet legend.
_________________________________
But in them, our bond was struck.
_________________________________
Our clans were once enemies.
_________________________________
But when invaders threatened us
from the sea,
_________________________________
you joined together to defend our lands.
_________________________________
You fought for each other.
_________________________________
You risked everything for each other.
_________________________________
Lord MacGuffin, my dad saved your life,
_________________________________
stopping an arrow
as you ran to Dingwall's aid.
_________________________________
Aye, and I'll never forget it.
_________________________________
MERIDA: And, Lord Macintosh,
_________________________________
you saved my dad
when you charged in on heavy horse
_________________________________
and held off the advance.
_________________________________
And we all know how Lord Dingwall
broke the enemy line.
_________________________________
With a mighty throw of his spear!
_________________________________
I was aiming at you, you big tumshie.
_________________________________
(ALL LAUGH)
_________________________________
The story of this kingdom
is a powerful one.
_________________________________
My dad rallied your forces
_________________________________
and you made him your king.

It was an alliance forged in bravery
and friendship
_________________________________
and it lives to this day.
_________________________________

But I've been selfish.

I tore a great rift in our kingdom.

There's no one to blame but me.
_________________________________
And I know now
that I need to amend my mistake
_________________________________
and mend our bond.
_________________________________
And so, there is the matter
of my betrothal.
_________________________________
I've decided to do what's right
_________________________________
and...

Might our young people decide

Huh?

Well, since you've obviously
made up your minds about this,
_________________________________
I have one thing to say.
_________________________________
-This is...
-A grand idea!
_________________________________
Give us our own say
in choosing our fate.
_________________________________
-What?
-Aye. Why shouldn't we choose?

But she's the princess.

I did not pick her out. It was your idea.
