Transcript[edit | edit source]
Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Woody find a dark corridor in a air vent.
Sora: "It looked like this?"
Sora: "Here goes."
Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Woody walk into the dark corridor.
--- Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Woody run within the dark portal towards a suspended and unconscious Buzz.
Young Xehanort appears between Buzz and Sora and the others.
Woody: "What do you want with my friend?"
Young Xehanort: "Look... Such tremendous darkness. All because he was ripped away form the boy who cares about him most."
Woody: "Does that mean...we'll all be like Buzz...if we don't...find Andy?"
Sora: "Wrong! Distance doesn't matter. Andy's part of their hearts, just like my friends are part of mine. You can't rip that apart!"
Donald and Goofy nod in agreement. Woody remembers Andy's name on his shoe and notices the same handwriting on Buzz's shoe.
Young Xehanort: "What? "Your friends are your power"? Ah... How very true. But if the light of friendship is a form of power...the darkness of being alone is a power...even greater. Darkness is the heart's true nature."
Woody: "Whatever you're talking about, I don't care. Put Buzz back the way he was, then get lost!"
Young Xehanort: "Or else what, toy?"
Woody: "Yeah, I am a toy. And a friend. My guess is no one's ever loved you before. Because you know nothing about hearts and love."
Sora: "There are hearts all around us, trying to connect. Your "loneliness" only made Woody and Buzz's connection stronger. That's the heart's true nature—to never, ever let go. Wherever they are, Andy and the other toys haven't let go either."
Woody: "Yeah! You can't keep us from Andy. We're going home no matter what. And taking Buzz!"
Sora: "Xehanort, you're so caught up in finding the shadows, you forgot about the light that cast them."
The darkness dissipates and casts a light that frees Buzz from the darkness surrounding him.
Young Xehanort: "No!"
Sora, Donald, and Goofy charge towards Young Xehanort, who summons his Keyblade to hold them back.
Sora: "Woody, now!"
Woody jumps above them and uses his pull-string to swing up to Buzz, bringing him to the ground.
Woody (pull-string recordinglo;p): "Giddy-up partner! We gotta get this wagon train a-movin'!"
Buzz: "Woody... Wait, how did I get here?"
Woody: "Oh, I don't know. Maybe somebody switched you into "dark and stormy" mode."
Buzz: "But I don't have a—"
Buzz understands Woody's meaning. Woody helps him get up.
Buzz: "Thank you, Woody."
Woody: "Good to have ya back, Buzz."
Donald: "Hey, hurry up!"
Goofy: "We can't hold him much longer!"
Sora: "Don't give up, guys!"
Young Xehanort strikes Sora, Donald, and Goofy, sending them flying back.
Young Xehanort: "So, even empty puppets can be given strong hearts. I am going to have to remember that."
Buzz: "Remember this—our hearts will always be connected to Andy's. No matter what you do!"
Woody: "And that's something you'll never understand, because you're hollower than any toy."
Young Xehanort: "But now I know a heart can be placed in the vessel of our choosing. For that, let me give you a parting gift to play with."
Sora charges towards Young Xehanort. Young Xehanort disappears.
Young Xehanort: "Find the hearts joined to yours."
The darkness begins to gather in one spot, creating the King of Toys Heartless.
Sora: "Here goes!"
