Mirrormask (2005)
Valentine: I'm an important person you see. I have a tower, a wonderful tower it was, tall and grand.
Helena: Are you?
Valentine: Of course.
Helena: Where is your tower then?
Valentine: We aren't talking... We had an argument, you see.

Helena: Riddle? Riddle. So have you thought of an answer yet?
Gryphon: You can't pass. I give up, I think, no wait, wait... Fine. What's the answer?
Helena: Okay. It's a herring.
Gryphon: But a herring isn't green.
Helena: You can paint it green.
Gryphon: But a herring doesn't hang on a wall.
Helena: You can nail it to a wall.
Gryphon: But a herring doesn't whistle!
Helena: Oh, come on. I just put that in to stop it from being too obvious.

Helena: [Trying to summon Valentine's tower to stop from being consumed by shadow swarm] You know, sometimes it helps to apologize to others, even if it isn't your fault.
Valentine: I'M SORRY.

Helena: If I tell you something weird... will you think I'm crazy?
Valentine: Yes. I expect so.

Valentine: Right... this is where I stop.
Helena: Giants Orbiting?
Valentine: Sounds a bit iffy, doesn't it? I'll be here when you get back. If you get back.

Joanne: All those kids in there want to run away and join the circus.
Helena: Great, they can have my life. I want to run away and join real life.

Helena: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
Valentine: Absolutely. If we put little wheels on the bottoms of our shoes, we could just roll around everywhere...

Valentine: You're hurt. Wait here.
Helena: What about you?
Valentine: Oh, I'm a panther. I shall slip unnoticed through the darkness... like a dark, unnoticeable slippy thing.

Helena: You pathetic creep!
Valentine: Rocks and logs can bite like dogs, but words will never hurt me!

Black Queen: You need a pretty frock and a happy smile.
Helena: A smile?
Black Queen: With a smile on your face everything will seem brighter because from now on we are... what?
Helena: I don't know.
Black Queen: Tell her.
Black Queen's Guard: Uh, not at home to Mr. Grumpy, your majesty.
Black Queen: Exactly.

Helena: [during opening credits, playing with sock puppets] Ha! You may think I'm a hardhearted black sock, but underneath this dark woolly exterior is a naked pink foot.

Nurse: Listen, I don't want you tiring her out.
Helena: What do you think I'm going to do? Take her dancing?

Helena: Where's your fruit? I brought you fruit yesterday.
[looks over at other patient; leans in close to Joanne]
Helena: She didn't take it, did she? Did she?
Joanne: [looks over; chuckles] No.

Helena: She lost her teeth yesterday. I said: "If Mum were here, she'd find them. She's amazing at finding things." She said: "If your Mum could find them, she must be a miracle worker."
Joanne: They'll be staring her in the face. They always are.
Helena: They were in the fridge.

Helena: You useless, cake-hogging coward!
Valentine: I did not hog that cake!

Valentine: This place is ready to collapse into a heap of rubble. It can't be safe.
Helena: You're such a coward. It's perfectly- WAAAAHH!
[she falls through a hole in the floor]
Valentine: [looking down the hole] Coward, eh? I prefer to think of myself as... Prudent. Cautious. And unlike some people I could mention, STILL UP HERE!

Helena: I want to run away and join real life.
Joanne: Real life? You couldn't handle real life.

Helena: [of the Shadow Princess, her double in the real world, who's probably having a good time] Yeah, eating chips and snogging boys and smoking and everything!

Helena: I'm not anyone
Helena: I'm... me!

Anti-Helena: Of course, if I use the Mirrormask it may upset things a bit. But you can't run away from home without destroying somone's world.

Valentine: What did you say your name was?
Helena: Helena.
Valentine: Helena. Helen. Helen-nun-nuh... it's a bit drab, isn't it? You know, you should think about changing that. Go for something with a bit of dignity and style, mixed with a bit of romance. Something like... 'Valentine'.
Helena: Why? What's your name?
Valentine: Valentine.

Helena: [talking about the charm] What does it look like?
Prime Minister: I don't know.
Helena: Well... how big is it?
Prime Minister: I don't know.
Helena: Well... what kind of places could it be in?
Prime Minister: I don't know.
Helena: What do you know?
Prime Minister: I think I'd know it if I saw it.
Helena: Would you?
Prime Minister: I don't know... What if I have seen it and I didn't know it. What if it was the chicken!

Valentine: No no no, it's really gotta feel like it's being rejected. Grr, horrible, offensive, badly constructed book.
[flies away on book]
Helena: Right, umm... Nasty... Poorly paced book, with a soppy ending that I didn't believe in FOR ONE MINUTE!
[flies after Valentine]

Helena: It's not your dream, mom, it's mine.
Joanne: [giggles] That's the kind of thing people say in dreams.

[last lines]
Valentine: You know, I've always wanted to work in the circus.
Helena: Um, good. You'd have made a lousy waiter.
Valentine: [laughing] Yeah... What?

Helena: You are not my boyfriend, you know, even if this is my mom's dream.
