Vladimir: She certainly has a mind of her own.
Dimitri: Yeah. I hate that in a woman.

Dowager Empress Marie: You were the boy, weren't you - the servant boy who got us out? You saved her life and mine and you restored her to me. Yet you want no reward.
Dimitri: Not anymore.
Dowager Empress Marie: Why the change of mind?
Dimitri: It was more a change of heart. I must go.

Anastasia: Oh no, not me... nope! No... nobody ever told me I had to *prove* I was the grand duchess!
Dimitri: Look, I...
Anastasia: Show up, yes. Look nice, fine. But lie?
Dimitri: You don't know if it's a lie. What if it's true?

Anastasia: Do you really think I'm royalty?
Dimitri: You know I do!
Anastasia: Then stop bossing me around!

Dowager Empress Marie: You'll stop at nothing, will you?
Dimitri: I'm probably about as stubborn as you are.

Dimitri: Wanna bet?

Dimitri: Who said anything about an apology? I was just saying that...
Anastasia: Please don't talk anymore, it's only going to upset me.
Dimitri: Fine, I'll be quiet if you be quiet.
Anastasia: Alright, I'll be quiet.
Dimitri: Fine.
Anastasia: Fine.
Dimitri: Fine.
Anastasia: Fine... So you think you're gonna miss it?
Dimitri: Miss what? Your talking?
Anastasia: No! Russia.
Dimitri: Nope.
Anastasia: But it was your home.
Dimitri: It was a place I once lived. End of story.
Anastasia: Then you must plan on making Paris your true home.
Dimitri: What is it with you and homes?
Anastasia: Well for one thing it's something every normal person wants. And for another thing... it's thing where ya just...
Dimitri: What?
Anastasia: Forget it!
[grunts in frustration]

Dimitri: What are you looking for?
Anastasia: The Russian Circus. I think it's still in here.

Vladimir: [after tempting Anya to be Anastasia] I'm telling you we're walking away too soon!
Dimitri: I'm telling you I've got it all under control... ok walk a little slower...

Dimitri: I don't want your money.
Dowager Empress Marie: What do you want then?
Dimitri: Unfortunately, nothing you can give.

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

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 Impostor: Grandma, it's me, Anastasia.
[sways hips]
Dimitri: Oh, brother.

Dimitri: [after Anastasia hands him a dynamite and it's about to explode] What do they teach you in those orphanages?

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.

Dimitri: I was the boy in the palace - the one who opened the wall. She's the real thing, Vlad.
Vladimir: Then that means that our Anya has found her family. We have found the heir to the Russian throne. And you...
Dimitri: Will walk out of her life forever.
Vladimir: But...
Dimitri: Princesses don't marry kitchen boys.

[the overheated train engine and the baggage car have been separated from the rest of the train]
Dimitri: What was that?
Vladimir: I don't know, but there goes the dining car.

[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.

Dimitri: [after the Russian ballet] Please inform Her Majesty, the Dowager Empress, that I have found her granddaughter, the Grand Duchess Anastasia. She's waiting to see her just outside the door.
Sophie: I'm very sorry, young man, but the Dowager Empress, she will see no one.
Dowager Empress Marie: You may tell that impertinent young man that I have seen enough Grand Duchess Anastasias to last me a lifetime.
Sophie: You'd better go.
Dimitri: Please, let me just...
Dowager Empress Marie: [interrupting] Now if you'll excuse me, I wish to live out the remainder of my lonely life in peace.

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!

Dowager Empress Marie: [as Dimitri recklessly drives the Dowager Empress Marie's car] Ilya, slow down.
Dimitri: I'm *not* Ilya, and I *won't* slow down, NOT until you listen.
Dowager Empress Marie: You... how dare you! Stop this car immediately! STOP THIS CAR!

Dimitri: [singing] Paris holds the key to her past. / Yes, Princess, I've found / you at last. / No more pretend, / You'll be gone, / That's the end...
