Here's a gag for the bit where Aladdin is helping Abanazer find the entrance to the cave.
ALADDIN. "Hey Uncle Abanazer. My feet are killing me. How far have we walked?"
ABANAZER "About thirteen miles my boy."
ALADDIN. "Thirteen! That's an unlucky number."
ABANAZER. "Oh very well! Fourteen miles!
ALADDIN (to audience). There, I said it was unlucky. Now we've walked another mile......."!
