“Well, it serves you right, spoiling people’s best dreams. Yes, I know it’s a lovely morning, but… …it was a lovely dream too. What kind of a dream? Mm-mm. Can’t tell. ‘Cause if you tell a wish, it won’t come true. And, after all… ♪ A dream is a wish ♪ Your heart makes ♪ When you’re fast asleep ♪ In dreams you will lose ♪ Your heartaches ♪ Whatever you wish for ♪ You keep ♪ Have faith ♪ In your dreams ♪ And someday ♪ Your rainbow will come smiling through ♪ No matter how your heart is grieving ♪ If you keep on believing ♪ The dream that you wish ♪ Will come true ♪. Oh, that clock. Old killjoy. I hear you. Come on, get up, you say. Time to start another day. Even he orders me around. Well, there’s one thing. They can’t order me to stop dreaming. And perhaps someday… ♪ The dreams that I wish ♪ Will come true ♪ Da dum da da dum Bum bum bum ♪ La da da da bum dum Ba dee ♪ Ba dum dum ba dum dum Ba dee ♪ La la la la la la La la ♪ Ahhh ♪” — Cinderella

“♪ No matter how your heart is grieving ♪ If you keep on believing ♪ The dream that you wish ♪ Will come true ♪. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. One at a time, please. Now, Jaq, what’s all the fuss about? Oh, a visitor. Well, she’ll need a dress… oh, that does make a difference. He’ll need a jacket and shoes… where? In a trap? Why didn’t you say so? Now, now, calm down, everybody. Oh, the poor little thing’s scared to death. Jaq, maybe you better explain things to him. Well, that’s better. Hmm. Well, let’s just slip it on for size. Uh-huh. It is a little snug. But it’ll have to do. Now, for a name. I’ve got one. Octavius. But for short, we’ll call you Gus. I’ve got to hurry. See he keeps out of trouble, Jaq. And don’t forget to warn him about the cat.” — Cinderella

“Here, kitty, kitty. Come, kitty. Come on. Lucifer! Come here! I’m sorry if Your Highness objects to an early breakfast. It’s certainly not my idea to feed you first. It’s orders. Come on. Bruno. Bruno! Dreaming again. Chasing Lucifer? Catch him this time? That’s bad. Suppose they heard you upstairs. You know the orders. So if you don’t want to lose that nice, warm bed, you’d better get rid of those dreams. Know how? Just learn to like cats. No, I mean it. Lucifer has his good points too. For one thing, he… well, sometimes he… there must be something good about him. Bruno! Oh, Bruno. Come on, now. Outside. I know it isn’t easy. But at least we should try go get along together. And that includes you, Your Majesty. Breakfast time. Everybody up. Hurry, hurry. Come on, everybody. Breakfast, breakfast. Oh, there you are. I was wondering. All right. Breakfast is served. Stop that. Go on, shoo, shoo. Shoo, shoo, shoo! Poor little Gus. Here. Help yourself.” — Cinderella

“All right, all right. I’m coming. Oh, my goodness. Morning, noon and night. Coming, coming. I’m coming. In a minute. Good morning, Drizella. Sleep well? Yes, Drizella. Good morning, Anastasia. Yes, Anastasia. Good morning, Stepmother. Yes, Stepmother. All right, Lucifer. What did you do with him? Oh, you’re not fooling anybody. We’ll just see about this. Come on. Let him go. Now the other one. Come on! Oh, poor little Gus. Oh, Lucifer, won’t you ever learn? Yes, Stepmother. You don’t think that I… but I was only trying to… but I just finished…” — Cinderella

“♪ Hi-i-i-igh ♪ Above ♪ Oh, sing, sweet nightingale ♪ Sing, sweet nightingale ♪ Hi-i-igh ♪ Oh, sing sweet nightingale ♪ Sing, sweet ♪ Nightingale ♪ Oh, sing, sweet nightingale ♪ Sing, sweet ♪ Oh, sing, sweet nightingale ♪ Sing ♪ Oh, sing, sweet nightingale ♪ Oh, sing, sweet ♪ Oh ♪ Sing ♪. Oh! Oh, Lucifer! You mean old thing. I’m just going to have to teach you a lesson. Thank you. I don’t know. He said it’s urgent. Maybe I should interrupt the, uh, music lesson. This just arrived from the palace.” — Cinderella

“That means I can go too. Well, why not? After all, I’m still a member of the family. And it says ‘By royal command, every eligible maiden is to attend.’ Oh, I will. I promise. I’m sure I can. Oh, thank you, Stepmother. Isn’t it lovely? It was my mother’s. Well, maybe it is old-fashioned, but I’ll fix that. Wait a minute. There ought to be some good ideas in here. Uh-huh. This one. I’ll have to shorten the sleeves, I’ll need a sash, a ruffle, something for a collar… oh, now what do they want? Oh, well. I guess my dress will just have to wait. All right, all right. I’m coming.” — Cinderella

“Yes? Very well. The carriage is here. I’m not going. Yes. Good night. Oh, well. What’s a royal ball? After all, I suppose it would be frightfully dull, and, and boring, and completely… …completely wonderful. It’s my… well, I never dreamed it. It’s such a surprise. Oh, how can I ever… oh, thank you so much.” — Cinderella

“Wait! Please, wait for me. Isn’t it lovely, do you like it? Do you think it will do? Oh, no. Oh, please. Please, no. Oh, no. No, it isn’t true. It’s just no use. No use at all. I can’t believe. Not anymore. There’s nothing left to believe in. Nothing. Oh, but I do. The ball? Oh, but I’m not… miracles? Magic wand? Then you must be… …a pumpkin. Oh, it’s beautiful. Oh, poor Lucifer. Another one? But, uh… oh, I wasn’t… I mean, I do, but… but don’t you think my dress… oh, it’s a beautiful dress. Did you ever see such a beautiful dress? And, look, glass slippers. Why, it’s like a dream. A wonderful dream come true. Midnight? Thank you. Oh, I understand, but… …it’s more than I ever hoped for.” — Cinderella

Oh, my goodness. It’s midnight. Goodbye. Oh, I must. Please. Please, I must. Well, I-I… oh, the prince. I haven’t met the prince. Goodbye. Goodbye.” — Cinderella

The Prince

“♪ And now I know ♪ The key to all heaven ♪ Is mine ♪ I’ll touch every star ♪ In the sky ♪ So this is the miracle ♪ That I’ve been dreaming of ♪ So this ♪ Is ♪ Love ♪ What’s the matter? Yes, so it is. But why… no, no, wait. You can’t go now. It’s only… but why? The prince? But didn’t you know… no, wait. Come back. Please come back. I don’t even know your name. How will I find you? Wait! Please wait. Wait!”

Lady Tremaine

“Well, come in, child, come in. Pick up the laundry and get on with your duties. Cinderella! Close the door, Cinderella. Come here. Hold your tongue. Now… …it seems we have time on our hands. Silence! Time for vicious practical jokes. Perhaps we can put it to better use. Now, let me see… there’s a large carpet in the main hall. Clean it! And the windows, upstairs and down. Wash them! Oh, yes. And the tapestries and the draperies. Do them again! And don’t forget the garden. 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.”

“♪ The pear-shaped toad ♪. Girls, girls. Remember, above all, self-control. Yes! Cinderella! I’ve warned you never to interrupt… I’ll read it. Well, there’s to be a ball. In honor of His Highness, the prince. And, by royal command, every eligible maiden is to attend. Yes, so it does. Well, I see no reason why you can’t go. If you get all your work done. And if you can find something suitable to wear. Of course. I said ‘if.'”

“Cinderella? When you’re through, and before you being your regular chores, I have a few little things. Yes? Oh. Why, Cinderella, you’re not ready, child. Not going? Oh, what a shame. But, of course, there will be other times.”

“Remember, when you’re presented to His Highness, be sure… girls, please. After all, we did make a bargain. Didn’t we, Cinderella? And I never go back on my word. How very clever. These beads, they give it just the right touch. Don’t you think so, Drizella? Girls, girls. That’s quite enough. Hurry along now, both of you. I won’t have you upsetting yourselves. Good night. Nor I. But she certainly is… wait. There is something familiar about her. Oh.”

Drizella and Anastasia

“Cinderella! Cinderella! Cinderella! Cinderella! Cinderella! Cinderella! Huh. As if you care. Take that ironing and have it back in an hour. One hour, you hear? Well, it’s about time. Don’t forget the mending. Don’t be all day getting it done, either. Oh! Oh, Mother! Oh, Mother! Mother! Mother! You did it. You did it on purpose. Mother! Mother! Mother! Now what did you do? Oh! She put it there. A big, ugly mouse, under my teacup. Humph! Are you gonna get it.”

“♪ Ooh ♪ Sing, sweet nightingale ♪ Sing, sweet nightingale ♪ Hi-i-igh ♪ Above me ♪ Oh, sing, sweet nightingale ♪ Sing, sweet nightingale ♪ Ohhh ♪ Sing, sweet nightingale ♪ Sing, sweet nightingale ♪ Hi-i-i-igh ♪ Hi-i-igh ♪. You clumsy! You did it on purpose. It’s her fault. From the palace! Give it here. Let me have it. A ball! Oh, the prince! Why, that’s us! And I’m so eligible. Ha! Her, dancing with the prince. I’d be honored, Your Highness. Would you mind holding my broom? Mother, do you realize what you just said? Oh. ‘If.'”

“Cinderella! Cinderella! Cinderella! Cinderella! And this too, my slippers. Don’t forget… take my dress. Here, mend the buttonholes. Press my skirt and mind the ruffle. I don’t see why everybody else has nice things to wear, and I always end up in these old rags. This sash! I wouldn’t be seen dead in it. You should talk. These beads! I’m sick of looking at them. Trash. Oh, I hate this.”

“Cinderella! Mother, she can’t. Oh, no. You can’t! No, I don’t. I think she’s… oh! Why, you little thief! They’re my beads. Give them here. And, look, that’s my sash. She’s wearing my sash. She can’t! Thief! Who is she, Mother? Do we know her? Well, the prince certainly seems to. I know I’ve never seen her.”

Fairy Godmother

“Nothing, my dear? Oh, now you don’t really mean that. Nonsense, child! If you’d lost all your faith, I couldn’t be here. And here I am. Oh, come now. Dry those tears. You can’t go to the ball looking like that. Of course you are. But we’ll have to hurry, because even miracles take a little time. Mm-hmm. Watch. What in the world did I do with that magic wand? I was sure… that’s strange. I-I always… your fairy godmother? Of course. Where is that wand? I… oh! I forgot. I put it away. Now, let’s see. Hmm. I’d say the first thing you need is, um… …a pumpkin. Mm-hmm. Now, uh, the magic words. Uh… oh!”

“♪ Sala-gadoola-menchika-boo-la Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo ♪ Put ’em together and what have you got? ♪ Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo ♪ Sala-gadoola-menchika-boo-la Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo ♪ It’ll do magic, believe it or not ♪ Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo ♪ Now sala-gadoola means menchika-boolaroo ♪ But the thing-a-ma-bob that does the job ♪ Is bibbidi-bobbidi-boo ♪ Sala-gadoola-menchika-boo-la Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo ♪ Put’em together and what have you got ♪ Bibbidi-bobbidi, bibbidi-bobbidi Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo ♪ Yes, isn’t it? With an elegant coach like that, of course, we’ll simply have to have… …mice! Oh, this is really nice. Why, we’ll have a coach and four when we’re through. Just a wave of my stick and to finish the trick, bibbidi, bobbidi, boo. Gracious, what do I do? I was sure there were four. There should be one more. There you are. Bibbidi, bobbidi, boo. Serves him right, I’d say. Now, um… where were we? Oh, goodness, yes. You can’t go to the ball without, um… a horse. But tonight, for a change, you will handle the reins, and sit in the driver’s seat too. For instead of a horse, you’re the coachman, of course. Bibbidi, bobbidi, boo. That does it, I guess, except for… oh, yes! The finishing touch. And, that’s you. Yes, Bruno, that’s right, you’ll be footman tonight. Bibbidi, bobbidi, boo. Well, well, hop in, my dear. We can’t waste time. No, don’t try to thank me.”

“Yes, it’s lovely, dear. Lov… good heavens, child. You can’t go in that! Now, let’s see, dear. Your size and the shade of your eyes. Mm-hmm. Something simple, but daring too. Oh, just leave it to me. What a gown this will be. Bibbidi-bobbidi. Bibbidi-bobbidi. Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo. Yes, my child. But, like all dreams, well, I’m afraid this can’t last forever. You’ll have only till midnight, and then… now, now, now, just a minute. You must understand, my dear. On the stroke of 12, the spell will be broken, and everything will be as it was before. Bless you, my child. I… goodness me! It’s getting late. Hurry up, dear. The ball can’t wait. Have a good time. Dance, be gay. Now, off you go. You’re on your way.”


“My son has been avoiding his responsibilities long enough. It’s high time he married and settled down. I am patient! But I’m not getting any younger, you know. I want to see my grandchildren before I go. No. No, you don’t know what it means to see your only child grow father, farther and father away from you. I’m… I’m lonely in this desolate old palace. I… I want to hear the pitter patter of little feet again. Let him alone? With his silly romantic ideas? Love. Bah! Just a boy meeting a girl under the right conditions. So we’re arranging the conditions. Suspect! Ha! Look, the boy’s coming home today, isn’t he? Well, what could be more natural than a ball to celebrate his return? If all the eligible maidens in my kingdom just… …happened to be there, why, he’s bound to show interest in one of them, isn’t he? Isn’t he? The moment he does… soft lights. Romantic music. All the trimmings! It can’t possibly fail. Can it? Tonight. Tonight! And see that every eligible maid is there. Understand?”

“Ah. The boy isn’t co-operating. I can’t understand it. There must be at least one who’d make a suitable mother. A suitable wife. I give up. Even I couldn’t expect the boy to… failure, eh? Ha-ha! Take a look at that you pompous windbag. Who is she? You know her? That’s one thing in her favor. The waltz. Quick, the waltz! Lights. The lights. Ha-ha! Failure, eh? Well… now for a good night’s sleep. You will stay right here. See they’re not disturbed, and when the boy proposes, notify me immediately. And remember: if anything goes wrong… ♪ La di da di la di da di La di da di ♪ La di um um um Ba bum ba do ♪ Ya dum ba dum dum dum dum ♪”

Grand Duke

“Of course, Your Majesty. But we must be patient. I understand, sire. Now, now, Your Majesty. Perhaps if we just let him alone… b-but, sire, in matters of love… but, Your Majesty, if the prince should suspect. Yes, sire. N-N-Nothing, sire. Y-Y-Yes, sire. Y-Y-Yes, sire. No, sire! Very well, sure. I shall arrange the ball for… tonight? Tonight! Oh, but sire… yes, Your Majesty. Shh. Sire. 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 predestined to be his bride. A pretty plot for fairy tales, sire. But in real life, oh, no. No! It was foredoomed to failure. No, sire. I’ve never seen her before. Oh, quite so, sire. I believe I, too… notify me immediately. Ahem. Oh, I say. Young lady. Mademoiselle. Senorita. Just a moment. Guard! Guard! Stop that coach! Close those gates!”

“Open in the name of the king. An urgent message from His Imperial Majesty.”

“The Prince!”


“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.”
