Quotes from the Movie Cinderella

Once upon a time in a faraway land, there was a tiny kingdom, peaceful, prosperous, and rich in romance and tradition. Here in a stately chateau, there lived a widowed gentleman and his little daughter, Cinderella. Although he was a kind and devoted father, and gave his beloved child every luxury and comfort, still he felt she needed a mother's care. And so he married again, choosing for his second wife a woman of good family with two daughters just Cinderella's age, by name, Anastasia and Drizella. It was upon the untimely death of this good man, however, that the stepmother's true nature was revealed. Cold, cruel, and bitterly jealous of Cinderella's charm and beauty, she was grimly determined to forward the interests of her own two awkward daughters. Thus, as time went by, the chateau fell into disrepair, for the family fortunes were squandered upon the vain and selfish stepsisters while Cinderella was abused, humiliated, and finally forced to become a servant in her own house. And yet, through it all, Cinderella remained ever gentle and kind, for with each dawn she found new hope that someday her dreams of happiness would come true.

Time for vicious practical jokes. Perhaps we can put it to better use. Now let me see... There's the large carpet in the main hall; clean it! And the windows, upstairs and down; wash them! Oh yes, and the tapestries and the draperies-

Lady Tremaine

Do them again! And don't forget the garden. Then scrub the terrace, sweep the halls and the stairs, clean the chimneys. And of course there's the mending and the sewing and the laundry... Oh yes, and one more thing. See that Lucifer gets his bath.

Lady Tremaine

Oh, everyone's talking about it. The whole kingdom. Oh, hurry now. He'll be here any minute.

Lady Tremaine

For that girl. The one who lost her slipper at the ball last night. They say he's madly in love with her.

Lady Tremaine

I'd be honored, Your Highness. [holds out her flute] Would you mind holding my broom?

Anastasia

Mother, I don't see why everybody else seems to have such nice things to wear, and I always end up in these old rags. This sash! Why, I wouldn't be seen dead in it!

Anastasia

Yes, my child, but like all dreams, well, I'm afraid this can't last forever. You have only until midnight, and-

Fairy Godmother

Oh, now, just a minute. You must understand, my dear: On the stroke of tweleve, the spell will be broken, and everything will be as it was before.

Fairy Godmother

Yes, it's lovely, dear, lov... [actually sees it] Good heavens, child! You can't go in that!

Fairy Godmother

Well, if I may say so, Your Majesty, I did try to warn you; but you, Sire, are incurably romantic. No doubt you saw the whole pretty picture in detail. The young prince bowing to the assembly. Suddenly he stops. He looks up. For, lo, there she stands. The girl of his dreams. Who she is or whence she came, he knows not, nor does he care for his heart tells him that here, here is the maid he is predestined to be his bride. A pretty plot for fairy tales, Sire. But in real life... oh, no. No, it was foredoomed to failure.

Grand Duke

You'll try this on every maid in my kingdom. And, if the shoe fits... bring her in!

The King

You are the only ladies of the household I hope- [catches himself] II presume.

Grand Duke
