When a storm washes a canoe bearing an infant boy ashore upon a small South Pacific island, he is at first well-received as a gift from the ...更多>
Pioi: Mahana, you ugly. Come down from that tree now. Young Tama: Am I in Heaven ? Chief Steward: Not quite. You are lucky you washed up when you did. Here, drink this. It is the juice of the noni. It will bring the blood back to your cheeks. Johnny Lingo: It's been a long time. I'm looking forward to our trade. Our people's health has benefitted enormously from the noni plant found on your island. Crazy Island Chief: Yes, the noni is a treasure. Now I hope you will not disappoint me. I need something unique for the dowry of my son's bride to be. Crazy Island Chief: [cups of noni juice are passed to Johnny Lingo and Tama, Tama spills his cup] The boy must pay for his carelessness ! Johnny Lingo: Forgive my young apprentice for his stupidity, I can assure you it was an innocent mistake. Crazy Island Chief: The gods must be appeased, the drink is an offering to them. You people might as well have spat in their faces. Young Tama: Yes, I promised I'd go back to take care of her, and I will. Johnny Lingo: Well, well... true love, something unfortunately that has escaped me. As you rightly say, a treasure more valuable than gold. Johnny Lingo: About the girl. If you truly value this girl you must wisely show it. Caring for her with stolen goods would not demonstrate true worth. No, love is a most costly commodity. The more you are willing to pay, the more valuable the prize. The question is, are you willing to pay the price ? Malio Chief: We are indeed honored by your visit and look forward to hosting the celebrated Johnny Lingo. In fact, we intend welcoming him with a feast. Chief Steward: Please accept the juice of the noni as a gift from Johnny Lingo to the people of Malio Island. A feast will be the perfect opportunity for Johnny to select a bride. Young Viane: Where have you been Tama ? We missed you on the beach. Young Natiti: He's been spending time with his new girlfriend. Young Miriama: I thought I was your girlfriend. I'm still saving my first kiss for you. Young Tama: I'd rather kiss a slimely eel than put my lips on yours Miriama. Young Miriama: [Mahana laughs] Shut up Mahana you ugly ! Why don't you ever comb your hair ? Young Viane: Because she couldn't get one through that rat's nest. Young Tama: I like her hair. It's sort of wild, yeah, wild like the sea.
