  • [after an old man steals her tiara] You... are not a very nice old man!!
  • I'm sure that Edward is already searching for me. No doubt by morning he'll come and rescue me from this strange land. Take me home so that the two of us can share a true love's kiss.
  • [singing] We adore each filthy chore that we determine. So, friends, even though you're vermin, we're a happy working thro-ong!
  • You've been a very kind friend to me when I had none, and I would never want to make you unhappy or cause you any trouble, so... I'll go. I wish you every happiness.
  • But dreams do come true. And maybe something wonderful will happen.

Robert Philip

  • [to Morgan after giving her a book] I know it's not the fairytale book you wanted, but this is better.
  • Just because she has on a funny dress doesn't mean she's a princess.
  • Forget about "happily ever after". It doesn't exist.
  • How come people keep giving you free stuff?
  • I know how it is when someone disappoints you. It's tempting to see things the way you wish they were instead of how they are,
  • I said I don't dance. I never said I couldn't.

Prince Edward

  • Are you in league with the wicked old hag who sent my poor Giselle to this foul place… Arty?
  • (after stabbing a bus) The steel beast is dead, peasants! I set you all free.
  • Nathaniel's glad to have me near.
  • You fear you'd die without me here.

  • I'm handsome even when I sleep?
  • (after finding the television remote at a hotel he is staying at) It appears this odd little box controls the magic mirror!
  • Thank you for taking care of my bride, peasants.

Nancy Tremaine

  • I never stay the night because we both agreed that Morgan's here and you have to set some boundaries. And I thought, "I'm so lucky, he's sensitive." I didn't realize you were worried about crowd control!
  • Wow, really good reception here!

Queen Narissa

  • (After seeing Edward and Giselle together for the first time) So this is the forest rat, who thinks she can claim my throne...NEVER!!!
  • One more chance? What do you think, poison apples grow on trees? There is only one left!
  • Hello, worthless. Miss me?
  • All this nauseating talk of true love's kiss... it really does bring out the worst in me.
  • Come along, Giselle. I don't want you to miss this ending.
  • Oh my, this is a twist on our story. Why, it's the brave little princess coming to the rescue. [to Robert] I guess that makes you the damsel in distress, huh, handsome?
  • How about this? "And they all lived happily ever after." Well, at least I did.


  • Troll: That's cheating! I supposed to eat you!
  • Bus Driver: Are you crazy? Nobody stabs my bus.

Robert Philip: [cynically] Yeah, well, welcome to New York.
Giselle: [sincerely] Thank you!

Robert Philip: Would you like me to call someone for you?
Giselle: I don't think they would hear you from here.

Giselle: Now, if only I can find a place to rest my head for the night.
Robert Philip: What kind of place?
Giselle: I don't know. Maybe a nearby meadow or a hollow tree.
Robert Philip: A hollow tree?
Giselle: Or a house full of dwarves. I hear they're very hospitable.

Robert Philip: What... what about the grown-up girl bonding time with you and Morgan? About you bringing her to school.
Nancy Tremaine: What, so you can have your own grown-up girl bonding time? I don't think so!

Prince Edward: Fear not, Giselle! I will rescue you!
Pip: Yeah, but who's gonna rescue me?

Giselle: Why are you staring at me?
Robert Philip: I don't know. It's... it's like you escaped from a Hallmark card or something.

Giselle: Robert! This is Clara. She saw Edward.
Robert: Oh.
Clara: He was on the bus this morning.
Robert: Uh-huh...
Clara: He tried to kill me!
Robert: Great. Wonderful. That's great.

Giselle: [singing] How does she know you love her?
Robert: Oh no, no, no...

Robert Philip: Don't sing. It's okay, you know. Let's just walk. Can we walk?
Jamaican Man: [singing] How does she know that you love her?
Robert Philip: He knows this song, too?

Giselle: [singing] Well, does he take you out dancin' just so he can hold you close?

Giselle: [singing] Dedicate a song with words meant just for you?
Robert: And I really don't sing.

Nathaniel: Sire, do you like yourself?
Prince Edward: What's not to like?

Prince Edward: [talking to a TV] Magic Mirror, I beg you. Tell me where she is!
Mary Ilene Caselotti: [on TV] Reporting from 116th and Broadway.
Prince Edward: One hundred and sixteenth and Broadway! [hugs the TV] Thank you, Mirror!

Robert: You know what? I don't know if you're kidding or if you're being ironic, because chipmunks, they don't talk.
Giselle: Well, not here they don't.

Giselle: Is that the only word that you know? "No?"
Robert Philip: No.
Giselle: Oh, yeah.
Robert Philip: No.
Giselle: "No."
Robert Philip: No.
Giselle: "No."
Robert Philip: No. I mean, No! No.

Prince Edward: Have you any last words before I dispatch you?
Robert: You have got to be kidding me!
Prince Edward: Strange words.

Morgan Philip: And when you go out, you don't want to wear too much makeup 'cause otherwise the boys get the wrong idea. And you know how they are. They are only after one thing.
Giselle: What's that?
Morgan Philip: I don't know. Nobody will tell me.

Queen Narissa: Take my crown? Don't you think that's a bit melodramatic, dear?
Prince Edward: I don't know what "melodramatic" means. But you will be removed from the throne forever. I will see to it, Narissa.

Dragon Narissa: [in reference to killing them] Let's begin with the girl who started it all, shall we?
Robert Philip: Over my dead body.
Dragon Narissa: Alright. I'm flexible. [grabs Robert]

Robert Philip: Put me down! You're crazy!
