Spaceballs script
Spaceballs (1987)
Synopsis: In a distant galaxy, planet Spaceball has depleted its air supply, leaving its citizens reliant on a product called "Perri-Air." In desperation, Spaceball's leader President Skroob (Mel Brooks) orders the evil Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis) to kidnap Princess Vespa (Daphne Zuniga) of oxygen-rich Druidia and hold her hostage in exchange for air. But help arrives for the Princess in the form of renegade space pilot Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) and his half-man, half-dog partner, Barf (John Candy).

Once upon a time warp. . . .

In a galaxy very, very, very, very, far away, there lived a ruthless

race of beings known as . . . Spaceballs.

Chapter Eleven

The evil leaders of Planet Spaceball, having foolishly spuandered

their precious atmosphere, have devised a secret plan to take every

breath of air away from their peace-loving neighbor, Planet Druidia.

Today is Princess Vespa's wedding day. Unbeknownest to the princess,

but knowest to us, danger lurks in the stars above. . .

EXT. SPACEBALL 1 - SPACE SPACEBALL 1 passes by at a slow speed. It

takes the ship about two minutes to pass. At the end of the ship is

a bumper sticker that says, "WE BRAKE FOR NOBODY."

INT. SPACEBALL 1 - SPACE SANDURZ is standing in the front of the

ship.

RICO Colonel Sandurz.

SANDURZ What is it, Sergeant Rico?

RICO You told me to let you know the moment Planet Druidia was in

sight, sir.

SANDURZ So.

RICO Planet Druidia is in sight, sir.

SANDURZ You're really a Spaceball. You know that, don't you?

RICO Thanks, sir.

SANDURZ Have you notified Lord Helmet?

RICO Yes, sir. I took the liberty. He's on his way.

VOICE (O.S.) Make way for Dark Helmet.

SANDURZ All rise in the presence of Dark Helmet.

A door opens revealing DARK HELMET, he resembles Darth Vader,

walking toward camera. He stops in front of camera, and is having

trouble breathing with the mask down.

HELMET (pulls mask up) I can't breathe in this thing.

SANDURZ We're approaching Planet Druidia, sir.

HELMET Good. I'll call Spaceball City, and notify President Skroob

immediately.

RICO I already called him, sir. He knows everything.

HELMET What? You went over my helmet?

RICO Well, not exactly over it, sir. More on the side. I'll always

call you first. It'll never happen again. Never, ever!

HELMET (puts on Schwartz ring)

RICO Oh shit! No, no, no, no, no, please, no, no, please, no, not

that. (covers his neck)

HELMET (pulls mask down) Yes. That. (shoots a green ray at Rico's

crouch)

RICO Whaoooooooo! Owwwwwwwwww!

GUARDS take him away. HELMET Sandurz.

SANDURZ (covers his crouch) Sir?

HELMET I don't see Planet Druidia. Where is it?

SANDURZ We don't have visual contact yet, sir, but we have it on the

radar screen. Shall I punch it up for you?

HELMET Na, nevermind. I'll do it myself.

HELMET and SANDURZ walk to the radar screen. HELMET stops in front

of the coffee maker.

SANDURZ Very good, sir. HELMET What's the matter with this thing?

What's all that churning and bubbling? You call that a radar screen.

SANDURZ No, sir. We call it, "Mr. Coffee." (points at

label, "Mr. Coffee") Care for some?

HELMET Yes! I always have coffee when I watch radar. You know that.

SANDURZ Of course I do, sir. HELMET Everybody knows that.

EVERYBODY (covers their crouch) Of course we do, sir.

HELMET (takes coffee) Now that I have my coffee, I'm ready to watch

radar. Where is it?

SANDURZ (points to label "Mr. Radar") Right here, sir.

HELMET Switch to teleview.

RADAR changes to a picture of Planet Druidia.

HELMET There it is, Planet Druidia, and underneath the air shield,

ten thousand years of fresh air. We must get through that air

shield.

SANDURZ We will, sir. Once we kidnap the princess, we will force her

father, King Roland, to give us the combination to the air shield.

Thereby destroying Planet Druidia and saving Planet Spaceballs.

HELMET Everybody got that. Good! When will the princess be married?
