GIRL (overlapping)

I know. Drago, I don’t know if I can do this anymore. Driving….here? How did that witch know about this place? LA was just an old wives’ tale, a spook story my parents told me so I would study and take my warrior training seriously and mind my curfew and not go wandering through nasty old witch’s gardens—

DRAGON

It was your idea to rescue Rapunzel. I thought we should wait until we passed the next level, but you just had to—

I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to do that. It’s just been a hard month.

GIRL

I know. That was a pretty bad accident. Are you sure you’re okay? You—haven’t really been your best since—

DRAGON

I’m sorry if I’m too much.

GIRL

You’re not too much.

Do you know a better way?

DRAGON

GIRL & DRAGON

Take Fountain.

DRAGON

You’ve heard that one.
