Anastasia: It's Anya.
Dimitri: Anya.

[grunts in frustration]

Dimitri: What are you looking for?

Anastasia: [singing] I never cared for Stroganoff!
Vladimir: [singing] She said that like a Romanov!

Anastasia: [singing] And I recall his yellow cat!
Vladimir: [singing to Dimitri] I don't believe we told her that...

Dowager Empress Marie: You're a very good actress, best yet in fact. But I've had enough.
[starts to walk away]
Anastasia: Peppermint?
Dowager Empress Marie: Oil for my hands.
Anastasia: Yes... I spilled a bottle. The carpet was soaked and it forever smelled of peppermint - like you. I used to lie on that rug and oh how I missed you while you were away...

Dowager Empress Marie: [looking through her memory box] Oh look! The drawing you gave me! Remember?
Anastasia: Oh yeah... Olga made me so mad; she said it looked like a pig riding a donkey!
[laughs]
Anastasia: She was right.
Dowager Empress Marie: [nostalgically] Ah, your laughter. Once again, I hear my Nicky, your dear father.

[ceremoniously places tiara on Anastasia's head]

Dimitri: [after making a deal with Anya] May I present... Her Royal Highness, the Grand Duchess Anastasia.
Anastasia: Pooka, we are going to Paris!

Dimitri: No, the dog is not going.
Anastasia: I say he's going.
Dimitri: I'm allergic to dogs.
Bartok: [after hearing Dimitri and Anya argue] Anastasia? Yeah, just one problem there, fella. Anastasia's dead. All the Romanovs are dead. They're dead. Dead, dead, dead. Am I right, my friend?
[to the "relic"]
Bartok: I mean, how could that be Ana... WAAGHH!
[clinging to the "relic"]
Bartok: YEEUUGHH!
Bartok: [hanging upside down] Oh, come on! Am I supposed to believe that thing woke up after all these years, just because some guy claims she's a Romanov?
Bartok: OK, OK, I get the message! Enough already with the glowing and the smoke people!
Bartok: [moves away] If that thing's come back to life, that must mean... Anastasia's ALIVE!
Dimitri: Just leave the dog.
Anastasia: I am not leaving the dog!
Bartok: And that's her!

Anastasia: One ticket to Paris, please.
Ticket Agent: Exit visa.
Anastasia: Exit visa?
Ticket Agent: No exit visa, NO TICKET!

Anastasia: [imitating Comrade Phlegmenkoff after leaving the orphanage] "Be grateful, Anya." I *am* grateful - grateful to get away!

Anastasia: [seeing something crash behind a speeding train after she just pulled Dimitri back inside] And to think that could have been you.
Dimitri: If we live through this, remind me to thank you.

Rasputin: [sneering] Long Live the Romanovs!
Anastasia: All right! I couldn't have said it better myself!
[tackles him]

[Anya and Dimitri have been arguing on the train - Vlad enters the compartment]
Anastasia: Oh, thank goodness it's you!
[points to Dimitri]
Anastasia: Will you please remove him from my sight?
Vladimir: [to Dimitri] What have you done to her?
Dimitri: Me? It's *her*!
Anastasia: HA!
[leaves]
Vladimir: Oh! An unspoken attraction!
Dimitri: *Attraction*? To that skinny little brat? Have you lost your mind?
Vladimir: I was only asking a simple question...
Dimitri: Attraction... ridiculous!

[Dimitri and Anya are waltzing]
Dimitri: That, uh, that dress looks really good on you.
Anastasia: Do you think so?
Dimitri: Yeah. I mean, it looked nice on the hanger but it's even better on you. Y-you, you should wear it!
Anastasia: I *am* wearing it!
Dimitri: Oh, oh yes, I was just, um, trying to give you a... a...
Anastasia: Complement?
Dimitri: Yeah.
Vladimir: [singing] It's one, two, three/ And suddenly/ I see it at a glance/ She's radiant/ And confidant/ And born to take this chance/ I taught her well/ I planned it all/ I just forgot/ Romance/ Vlad, how could you do this?/ How will we get through this?/ I never should have let them/ Dance!
Anastasia: I feel a little... dizzy.
Dimitri: Kind of... light-headed?
Anastasia: Yeah...
Dimitri: Me too. Probably from all the spinning.
[they stop dancing]
Dimitri: Maybe we should stop.
Anastasia: [quietly] We *have* stopped.
Dimitri: Anya, I...
Anastasia: Yes?
[they lean in... ]

[Dimitri is going to announce Anya to the Dowager; Anya stops him]
Anastasia: Dimitri?
Dimitri: Yes?
Anastasia: [a bit nervous] Look, we've been through a lot together...
Dimitri: [getting excited] Uh-huh?
Anastasia: [very nervously] And... I just wanted to...
Dimitri: [very excitedly] Yes?
Anastasia: Well...
[looses her nerve]
Anastasia: thank you, I guess. Yes. Thank you for everything.
[both turn away from each other. Dimitri turns back]
Dimitri: Anya, I...
Anastasia: [quickly turns to face him, excited] Yes?
Dimitri: [nervous] I... I'm, um...
Anastasia: [very excited] Ye-es?
Dimitri: [also loses his nerve] I want to wish you good luck, I guess.
Anastasia: [disappointed] Oh.

Anastasia: [voiceover, during a shot of Anya's farewell letter] Dear Grandmama, wish me luck. We'll be together in Paris again soon.

Anastasia: [after Dimitri is kicked out of the Dowager Empress Marie's private balcony at the Russian ballet] It was all a lie, wasn't it?
Dimitri: No, no...
Anastasia: You used me? I was just part of your con to get her money?
Dimitri: No, no, no, no - look, it may have started out that way, but everything's different now, because you really are Anastasia. You are!
Anastasia: Stop it! From the very beginning, you lied! And I not only believed you, I actually...
[grunts]
Dimitri: Anya, listen, when you spoke about the hidden door in the wall, and about the little boy, listen to me, that was...
Anastasia: NO! I don't want to hear about anything that I said or remembered, you just leave me alone!
[slaps Dimitri, then storms away]
Dimitri: [hollers after her] Anya, please, you have to know the truth!

Anastasia: [singing] Yes, let this be a sign, / Let this road be mine, / Let it lead me to my past, / And bring me home - at last!

Anastasia: [after waking up, flailing her arm and smacking Dimitri in the nose] Oh, sorry. I thought you were someone el - oh, it's you. Well, that's okay, then.

Young Anastasia: [the music box begins to play] It plays our lullaby!
Dowager Empress Marie: You can play it at night before you go to sleep, and pretend it's me singing!

Dowager Empress Marie: [Anastasia is trying to get onto the train] Hold on to my hand!
Young Anastasia: [Sobbing] Don't let go!
Dowager Empress Marie: [Anastasia's hand slips, she screams] Anastasia!
[Anastasia hits the ground and loses consciousness]
Dowager Empress Marie: ANASTASIA!

Dowager Empress Marie: [after showing Anastasia the music box; singing] On the wind, 'cross the sea, / Hear this song and remember...
Dowager Empress Marie, Young Anastasia: [singing together] Soon you'll be home with me / Once upon a December.
