The Battle of Waikiki

TONY: And there it is, 'Iolani Palace.
The only royal palace in the United States.
JEANNIE: Oh! It's beautiful, master.
It says, "The cornerstone was laid," um, "December 31st, 1879.
The palace is a monument to the era of Hawaiian monarchy.
" How about that? [BANGING.]
Roger, what are you doing? Are you gonna eat that thing or are you gonna beat it to death? I'm trying to get it open.
I wonder how many Hawaiians starved to death waiting for their breakfast.
Well, it says in this book that King Kamehameha could open a coconut with just two fingers.
Two fingers? Oh, you can't believe everything you read.
He must have been a very powerful man.
Oh, yeah.
He was a great man.
"Kamehameha Nui was the most" I thought we were talking about King Kamehameha.
Oh, yeah.
Well, uh, Nui means "the great" in Hawaiian.
It says here, "Over 200 years ago, "he defended these islands against the invaders and drove them over the Pali.
" I sure would have liked to have met him.
I did say I wish I could have met him, didn't I? Yes, master.
You did say that.
Kamehameha Nui.
Hello, sir.
Uh I can't tell you what a pleasure it is to meet you.
Yes, well.

ROGER: Can you really break open a coconut? Just put it away.
Can you imagine what a thrill this is gonna be for him? But if he could break this open Just Just forget it, will you? He has a chance to see what civilization has done for his country.

Uh Uh, Your Majesty Look.
Gods are angry, make rain fall up.

It's a strong union.
Pardon me, sir.
What are you doing? Must make gods happy.
Make rain dance.
Who? Me? Takes three to make rain dance.
Come! Well, it takes two to tango.
Come! What are we gonna do? We're gonna do a little rain dance.
ROGER: I've never done the rain dance before.
I've never done any kind of dance before.
Humor him.
Right when he's starting to dance.
The gods approve.
ROGER: It worked.
It worked.
Oh, Major Healey Oh.
Major Nelson.
Come here.
Yes, sir.
Hello, Dr.
Would you mind telling me what you were doing in that fountain? Oh, just your average Hawaiian rain dance, sir.
Did you say you were doing a rain dance? Uh, yes, sir.
One of our Hawaiian friends was teaching us some of the chants of the island.
Once it's raining, there's no sense hanging around.
Very good seeing you, sir.
Come on, Roge.
They made it rain? [SHOUTING.]
I did it! I did it! I made it rain! I made it rain? [MOUTHS.]
I don't know.
He's not out in front.
He's not out back either.
Oh, I never thought I'd be playing nursemaid to a king.
Boy, think of all those beautiful girls on the beach.
Roger, will you forget about the beautiful girls.
We got important things to do Forget the beautiful girls on the beach? Why did you have to send for him? I didn't send for him.
Jeannie Now, don't start Why don't we call the police, and they'll send out an alarm When they find him, you can explain who he is.
You do it.
All right, okay.
I wish he didn't have such a terrible temper.
Roger, that's why we're trying to find him.
That's why we're trying Oh.
I've been looking everywhere for you.
It worked.
It worked.
What worked, sir? Your rain dance.
Why, it's the most amazing thing that ever happened to me.
Look at me.
Uh, what's One moment the sun was shining, and then I went [CHANTING IN HAWAIIAN.]
It was incredible.
Why? Where is he? Where can we find him? Whe-where's who, sir? That native fellow you were dancing with.
The rainmaker.
Don't you realize if he went to Washington with us, have you any idea what it would mean? It would certainly shake up the boys in meteorology.
Well, I think so.
Predicting the weather is one thing, but making the weather? Why, we're just beginning to experiment.
Of course, you'd have to do it with a straight face.
A straight face? Especially when they point out to you that here in the tropics, it can be sun shining one minute and pouring down rain the next.
Could it have been a coincidence? It's a great practical joke, sir.
I can see the expression on the scientist's face, and the generals are standing around watching this guy [CHANTING IN HAWAIIAN.]
I didn't know the general had that sense of humor.
He hasn't.
And this is gonna be a very expensive joke.
Flying this guy to Washington.
Much too expensive.
I I don't know what I could have been thinking of.
I Oh, gentlemen, will you, uh, please do me a favor? Uh, forget Forget I ever mentioned it.
Please, I'm Must get out of here.
It was a good idea.
Wait, please [SIGHS.]
Oh, you're beautiful.
You know, you don't need a genie.
Hey, listen, let's find Jeannie and get Get the king.
Come on.
All right, Roger you go that way.
I'll go this way.
Wait a minute.
Maybe we better forget about the whole thing.
We can't let our king run around loose.
Wait a minute.
Which way was I supposed to go again? Roger! Don't tell me, don't tell me.
I think we have found him again.
Progress, phooey! Oh! Oh, no! [SHOUTING.]
Come here, Roger.
Come on, come on.
Are you all right, sir? Oh, yeah.
Whoa! Oh.
We thought we had lost you.

Do you know these are delicious with salt? Salt already.
You mean you let him out of your sight? Why, yes, master.
You told me not to interfere.
Why don't we put in for a transfer? Maybe Maybe to submarine service.
Well It's nothing to worry about.
He's probably forgotten all about it.
The invasion idea.
I do not think so.
Good war canoe.
I take.
Uh, anything you say, chief.
You want to rent one? I need 1000 war canoes.
Yeah, sure.

TONY: Boy, I'd like another rib.
Mine's a little rare.
Why don't we go Jeannie, what are you doing here? This is my first luau.
Oh, really? Oh, you'll love it.
There's a lot of great food and good music.
She can't stay.
You'll hate it.
The music's bad and the food's bad.
Oh, I'm going to stay.
No, you're not.
Now, listen here Have fun.
TONY: Oh, wait a minute, Je Uh See those two? They are the chiefs.

I wish you wouldn't go back yet, sir.
I'd I'd like another chance to show you.
