: Nephew? I didn't know you had a nephew. How old is he? Fritz
: Will we meet him? Clara
: Is he really your nephew or does he just call you uncle like we do?
: No. No! The spell will be broken if he slays the mouse king. Clara
: And wins the hand of a fair young maiden. Uncle Drosselmeier
: Precisely. Clara

: This is all like a dream come true. The Land of the Dolls is so beautiful and everyone's so kind. I've known some of you all my life. And to think we could all be together forever. Nutcracker
: Then you'll stay. Clara, what is it? Clara
: Oh, I want to. I want to stay with you, I do. But. Nutcracker
: But? But what? Clara
: Oh, I don't know, I'm so confused. It's just, well, the Land of the Dolls is where you all belong. But I want to grow up. There's a million things I want to do; people to meet, worlds to explore. I've always wanted to dance in the ballet. Nutcracker, I do love you, but I can't stay in the Land of the Dolls forever.
