He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983) s01e08 Episode Script

Song of Celice

1 [dramatic music.]
I am Adam, Prince of Eternia and defender of the secrets of Castle Grayskull.
This is Cringer, my fearless friend.
Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said, "By the power of Grayskull!" [chorus.]
He-Man I have the power! [roaring.]
Cringer became the mighty Battle Cat, and I became He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe.
Only three others share this secret: our friends the Sorceress, Man-At-Arms, and Orko.
Together we defend Castle Grayskull from the evil forces of Skeletor.
[dramatic music.]
[upbeat music.]
They're here.
[vehicles whooshing.]
Adam, you said I could do it.
Remember? Be my guest, Orko.
Pangas, Prime Minister of Tahryn, King Randor sends you this token of his esteem.
[shimmering tone.]
Uh, that's not what I wanted.
Uh, nono problem.
Got it here somewhere.
Is this what you're looking for, Orko? Oh, yeah.
[chuckles weakly.]
Oh, here you go, Your Majesty.
Thank you, my friends, and welcome to Tahryn.
- I - [creating growling.]
[crashing and rumbling.]
[dramatic music.]
By the power of [woman vocalizing.]
Are you all right, Teela? I'm fine.
Just a little shaken up.
What happened, Pangas? Yog almost awoke.
Legend says that this horrible creature called Yog lives in the caverns beneath Tahryn, and when he awakes [Celice.]
A singer must lull him back to sleep, or he will destroy Tahryn and all of Eternia.
How horrible! To live with such a threat As long as there is a singer, we are safe.
You mean your singing seems to calm Yog down? [Celice vocalizing.]
Nice trick.
What else can you do? Anything I choose.
Even stone will obey me.
Most interesting.
I may have a use for this singer.
[ominous music.]
I'd like to see the real Skeletor all wrapped up like that.
Perhaps someday, you will.
But not today.
It was her idea, Skeletor.
I have a job for you two.
[peaceful music.]
Where's Lizard Man? Touring the rock garden.
He probably fell asleep in the sun.
[warbling tone.]
Who's there? Going somewhere? Yes.
Away from you.
I think you'd better stay a while.
Nice try.
Now see if you can get me down.
[pounding and rumbling.]
[pounding and rumbling.]
[stone crashes.]
Not this time, lady.
I'll stop him.
No! Let's get who we came here for.
He-Man [dramatic music.]
For generations, my family has kept Yog asleep with our songs.
It is a marvelous talent.
It certainly is.
Teela! Trap Jaw and Evil-Lyn are [Evil-Lyn.]
Are taking the singer! Now, uh, if you'll excuse us.
Oh, and don't bother getting up.
By the power of Grayskull! [chorus.]
He-Man [chorus.]
He-Man I have the power! [chorus.]
He-Man [roaring.]
He-Man That was easy.
So far.
Let's hope we don't run into [Battle Cat roaring.]
He-Man! Oh, no.
Let the singer go! [crashing.]
He-Man [engines roaring.]
He-Man, with our singer gone, nothing can stop Yog, should he awaken.
[Yog growling.]
- [rumbling.]
- I'll be safe here.
Too bad you can't float like me, Lizzy.
Hey! [rumbling.]
If Yog awakens fully, Tahryn will be destroyed.
Teela, you and Man-At-Arms try to find and rescue Celice.
You can bet she's at Snake Mountain.
What about you, He-Man? Orko, Lizard Man, and I are going to stop Yog.
Right! Beware, He-Man.
There are more dangers than Yog in the caverns.
[foreboding music.]
[dramatic music.]
Hurry! We've got to reach Snake Mountain before Skeletor makes his next move! The fools.
I'm way ahead of them.
Delay them, Beast.
Use your telepathy to call one of the creatures you control.
Giant crawler, arise! This should bug them a little.
Father, look out! - Aah! - No, Father! Take him to Ice Island in the middle of the Lake of Fire.
[ominous music.]
How can we find Yog in this maze? The caverns run under half of Eternia.
They might even go as far as Grayskull.
Battle Cat can sniff him out.
He's hot on the trail.
Yeah, only it's the wrong trail.
[all grunting.]
- Orcs! - [Orcs grunting.]
Unfriendly Orcs.
Ugh! The worst kind.
[Orcs grunting and shouting.]
[thunder crashing.]
Welcome, Singer.
You will sing for me now.
And your song will hypnotize the Sorceress and open Castle Grayskull.
- Never.
- I think you can be persuaded.
Evil-Lyn! Persuade her.
[laughs maniacally.]
With pleasure, Skeletor.
[suspenseful music.]
[Evil-Lyn laughs maniacally.]
[dramatic music.]
The centipede will be easy to track.
I'll save you, Father, wherever you are.
[Orcs grunting.]
This calls for some teamwork.
Right! This should brighten things up.
[all grumbling.]
[all yelling.]
Now, Lizzy! Come and get me, cave crawlers.
[all grunting and yelling.]
Okay, He-Man.
Your turn.
Well done, team.
Now, by the time they find their way out, we'll be long gone.
Run! We can't leave you.
I said run! [rumbling.]
He-Man! Oh! [chorus.]
He-Man [rocks creaking.]
He-Man [boulder crashes.]
As I was saying, let's go find Yog.
He-Man Skeletor's will is your will, Singer.
You will do as he bids.
I will not use my songs for evil.
You have no choice.
You are in my power.
Follow me.
[ominous music.]
I built this model from a stone stolen from Grayskull.
Sing, Celice.
It works! Now for the real thing.
He-Man The centipede's tracks stop here.
Then my father must be there! [dramatic music.]
But how do I get there? [flames crackling.]
I hope this works.
Haven't got time for a hot bath.
Andaway! Whew.
Ah, keep back, you overgrown garden pest.
- Teela! - Father, hold on! I'll get you out.
Any idea how? [Teela.]
This should put that big bug on ice.
[warbling tone.]
[explosion booming.]
[boulder crashes.]
Father, you're safe.
Thanks to you.
Now to get off this island, and then to find Celice.
[thunder crashing.]
The Sorceress is in Grayskull, Celice.
You will use your siren song to hypnotize her and then sing the Jaw Bridge down.
Go! You areevil, but I cannot resist you.
[ominous music.]
[thunder crashing.]
Forgive me, Sorceress, wherever you are.
[Zoar screeching.]
[vocalizing continues.]
[dramatic music.]
[warbling tone.]
[vocalizing continues.]
[Celice vocalizing.]
Celice! Come on! [upbeat music.]
We're under Tahryn.
This has to be Yog's lair.
But he's gone.
That means he's awake.
- [Celice vocalizing.]
- Listen! [He-Man.]
Celice! You're right, Orko.
He's awake.
And he's followed her song.
Let's go! He-Man.
Come to Grayskull.
To Grayskull.
Come on.
[ominous music.]
The song has lulled the Sorceress to sleep.
You have done your job well, Singer.
Now open the Jaw Bridge.
No! She's broken my hypnotic spell! No one defies me and gets away with it.
[dramatic music.]
Come on! [zapping.]
Open Grayskull for me.
[Beast Man growling.]
You cannot stop me! Grayskull will be mine! [machinery whirring.]
[Battle Cat roaring.]
He-Man [dramatic music.]
He-Man [He-Man.]
Oh, no, you don't, rug-face.
- [chorus.]
He-Man - [He-Man grunts.]
Get out while you can, Beast Man.
[Beast Man growls.]
Lizzie, let me give you a hand.
Sorceress! Wake up, Sorceress! Wake up! [Battle Cat growling.]
Leaving so soon? Let go of me, flesh-face, or I'll [rumbling.]
- [Man-At-Arms grunts.]
- [Battle Cat growls.]
Yog! Celice! [vehicle whooshing.]
[Celice vocalizing.]
Skeletor! Skeletor isn't fighting fair.
This should even things a bit.
A zero-G bubble! I always said you were a lightweight, Skeletor.
Sleep again, Yog.
She sang Yog back to sleep, but not for long.
[Yog screeches.]
- Grayskull! - [Teela.]
Yog's out of control.
[Yog screeching.]
The old squeeze play, eh? [suspenseful music.]
- [Yog gurgling.]
- Yog! [Yog gurgling.]
[rumbling and cracking.]
[dramatic music.]
- Are you all right, Celice? - Yes.
[Lizard Man.]
He-Man! The Sorceress is under a sleep spell.
I can't wake her up.
I will wake her.
What happened, Lizard Man? [sighs.]
Things are all right now, Sorceress, thanks to the Singer of Tahryn.
Look! [zapping, vehicle whooshing.]
[suspenseful music.]
Well, looks like things are back to normal.
We'll return you to Tahryn, Celice.
To what purpose? You have hurled Yog into a bottomless pit.
I am no longer needed.
Courage and strength like yours are always needed, Celice.
Teela's right.
There's still plenty of evil on Eternia.
We could use your help against it.
I am a singer.
I've always been alone.
But now I have friends.
I will do what I can.
[Zoar screeching.]
In today's story, the beautiful voice of Celice kept the evil Yog from making all sorts of bad things happen.
Now, I can't promise that a song will make any magic for you, but I can promise that when you're feeling lonely or sad and we all do sometimes if you try singing a song or maybe whistling or maybe just smiling, you'll feel a lot better.
Try it and see.
And I'll be seeing you very soon.
Bye, now!
