Quotes

[first lines]

Queen: Slave in the magic mirror, come from the farthest space, through wind and darkness I summon thee. Speak! Let me see thy face.

Magic Mirror: What wouldst thou know, my Queen?

Queen: Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?

Magic Mirror: Famed is thy beauty, Majesty. But hold, a lovely maid I see. Rags cannot hide her gentle grace. Alas, she is more fair than thee.

Queen: Alas for her! Reveal her name.

Magic Mirror: Lips red as the rose. Hair black as ebony. Skin white as snow.

Queen: Snow White!

Grumpy: Hah! Women! A fine kettle of fish.

Queen: Magic Mirror, on the wall, who, now, is the fairest one of all?

Magic Mirror: Over the seven jewelled hills, beyond the seventh fall, in the cottage of the Seven Dwarfs, dwells Snow White, fairest of them all.

Queen: Snow White lies dead in the forest. The huntsman has brought me proof. Behold, her heart.

Magic Mirror: Snow White still lives, fairest in the land. 'Tis the heart of a pig you hold in your hand.

Queen: The heart of a pig! Then I've been tricked!

Queen: Take her far into the forest. Find some secluded glade where she can pick wildflowers.

Huntsman: Yes, Your Majesty.

Queen: And there, my faithful huntsman, you will kill her!

Huntsman: [protesting] But Your Majesty! The little princess!

Queen: [rising] Silence! You know the penalty if you fail.

Huntsman: [solemnly] Yes, Your Majesty.

Queen: But to make doubly sure you do not fail, bring back her heart in this.

Queen: Now, a formula to transform my beauty into ugliness. Change my queenly raiment to a peddler's cloak. Mummy dust, to make me old. To shroud my clothes, the black of night. To age my voice, an old hag's cackle. To whiten my hair, a scream of fright. A blast of wind to fan my hate. A thunderbolt to mix it well. Now, begin thy magic spell.

[last lines]

[Snow White has been seated upon a white horse by the Prince, and as the dwarfs crowd around, he lifts each of them up so that she may kiss them farewell on the forehead]

[Bashful is lifted up]

Snow White: Good-bye.

[she kisses Bashful, and his blush turns his face red]

Snow White: [Grumpy is hoisted up, grinning]

Snow White: Good-bye, Grumpy.

[as he is lowered down, he blows her a kiss back]

Snow White: Good-bye.

[Doc, Sneezy, and Happy are lifted up next, and she kisses them one by one]

Snow White: [Dopey is the last one lifted up, and before she kisses him, he wipes his mouth]

Snow White: Oh, Dopey.

[she takes him by the ears, and kisses him on the top of his head]

Snow White: [as the Prince leads the horse off, Snow White blows the dwarfs and animals one last kiss]

Snow White: Good-bye!

[the Prince and Snow White go to the edge of a cliff, and look out into the sky, where the setting sun transforms the clouds into a beautiful castle]

Chorus: Some day when spring is here / We'll find our love anew / And the birds will sing / And wedding bells will ring / Some day when my dreams / Come true.

[the story book from the beginning of the film reappears, with the words "... and they lived happily ever after." printed in it. The book slowly closes, as the Chorus sings and wedding bells toll]

Snow White: Supper's not quite ready. You'll just have time to wash.

Dwarfs: [in unison] Wash?

Grumpy: [scoffs] I knew there's a catch to it!

Grumpy: Angel, ha! She's a female! And all females is poison! They're full of wicked wiles!

Bashful: What are wicked wiles?

Grumpy: I don't know, but I'm agin' 'em.

Grumpy: Ask her who she is, and what she's a-doin' here!

Doc: Ah, yes. Now what are you, and who are you doin' here?

Snow White: You're Sleepy!

Sleepy: [Yawning] How'd you guess?

Happy: This is Dopey, he don't talk none.

Snow White: You mean he can't talk?

Happy: He don't know, he never tried.

Huntsman: [dropping the knife] I can't. I can't do it! Forgive me. I beg of Your Highness, forgive me.

Snow White: Why, I don't understand.

Huntsman: She's mad! Jealous of you! She'll stop at nothing!

Snow White: But, but who?

Huntsman: The Queen!

Snow White: The Queen?

Huntsman: Now, quick, child, run! Run away, hide! In the woods, anywhere! Never come back! Now go! Go! Run! Run! Hide!

Snow White: I'm awfully sorry. I didn't mean to frighten you. But you don't know what I've been through. And all because I was afraid. I'm so ashamed of the fuss I made.

Snow White: [seeing a chair] Oh!

[the animals scurry away as Snow White sits in the chair]

Snow White: What a cute little chair.

[the animals peek out from their hiding places]

Snow White: Why, there's seven little chairs. Must be seven little children. And from the look of this table, seven untidy little children.

Snow White: [Waking up] Oh, dear! I wonder if the children are.

[Sees the dwarves peeking from the edge of the bed]

Snow White: Oh!

[the dwarves hide, then peek again]

Snow White: Why. Why, you're little men.

[the dwarfs look at each other, then reveal their whole faces before Snow White]

Snow White: How do you do?

[the dwarfs look at each other again, but don't answer]

Snow White: I said, how do you do?

Grumpy: How do ya do, what?

Snow White: Oh, you can talk. I'm so glad.

Doc: Shh! Not so loud. You'll wake her up.

Grumpy: Ah, let her wake up! She don't belong here nohow!

Doc: Step up to the tub, 'tain't no disgrace / Just pull up your sleeves and get 'em in place / Then scoop up the water and rub it on your face / And go "Bl-bl-bl, bl-bl-bl, bl-bl-bl!"

Grumpy: A fine bunch of water lilies you turned out to be. I'd like to see anybody make me wash, if I didn't wanna.

Queen: But wait! There may be an antidote. Nothing must be overlooked.

[flips through the book she was reading earlier till she finds the antidote]

Queen: Ah, hear this! "The Victim of the Sleeping Death can be revived only by Love's First Kiss." "Love's First Kiss."

[slamming the book closed]

Queen: Bah! No fear of that. The dwarfs will think she's dead. She'll be buried alive!

[Cackles as she puts the poisoned apple into a basket filled with other apples and leaves by a trapdoor in the cellar floor]

Queen: Buried alive!

[cackles again]

Queen: All alone, my pet?

Snow White: Why, why, yes, I am, but.

Queen: Then the little men are not here?

Snow White: No, they're not, but.

Queen: Mmm, mm-hmm.

[Sniffing]

Queen: Baking pies?

Snow White: Yes, gooseberry pie.

Queen: It's apple pies that make the menfolks' mouths water.

[presenting the poisoned apple to Snow White]

Queen: Pies made from apples like these.

Snow White: Oh, they do look delicious.

Queen: Yes, but wait till you taste one, dearie. Like to try one, hm? Go on. Go on, have a bite.

Queen: And because you've been so good to poor old Granny, I'll share a secret with you. This is no ordinary apple, it's a magic wishing apple.

Snow White: A wishing apple?

Queen: Yes! One bite, and all your dreams will come true.

Snow White: Really?

Queen: Yes, girlie. Now, make a wish, and take a bite.

Snow White: Oh, I feel strange.

[Starts gasping for air]

Queen: [to herself] Her breath will still. Her blood congeal.

[Snow White drops onto the floor]

Queen: [Cackling] Now I'll be fairest in the land!

Grumpy: [During "Someday My Prince Will Come"] Ha! Mush.

Doc: The, uh, Princess will sleep in our beds upstairs.

Snow White: But, where will you sleep?

Doc: Oh, we'll be quite comfortable down here, in, uh, in, uh.

Grumpy: In a pig's eye!

Doc: In a pig's eye. Sty. No! No! I mean we'll be comfortable, won't we, men?

Happy: I'd like to dance and tap my feet / But they won't keep in rhythm. / You see, I washed 'em both today / And I can't do nothin' with 'em.

Bashful: I chased a polecat up a tree / Way out upon a limb / And when he got the best of me / I got the worst of him.

Grumpy: Now, I'm warnin' ya. Don't let nobody or nothin' in the house.

Snow White: Why, Grumpy, you do care.

[Kisses the reluctant Grumpy in the head]

Queen: [Passes the skeleton of a prisoner reaching for a pitcher] Thirsty? Have a drink!

[Kicks the pitcher; the skeleton crumbles and a spider skitters out]

Queen: Dip the apple in the brew. Let the Sleeping Death seep through.

[the poison on the apple forms a skull]

Queen: Look! On the skin! The symbol of what lies within. Now, turn red, to tempt Snow White, to make her hunger for a bite.

Queen: [offering the apple to the raven] Have a bite?

[the raven flaps wildly, trying to escape]

Queen: [laughing] It's not for you, it's for Snow White. When she breaks the tender peel, to taste the apple in my hand, her breath will still, her blood congeal, then I'll be fairest in the land!

Snow White: [to the pidgeons] Want to know a secret? Promise not to tell?

[singing]

Snow White: We are standing by a wishing well / Make a wish into the well / That's all you have to do / And if you hear it echoing / Your wish will soon come true.

Doc: Why, the whole place is clean.

Grumpy: There's dirty work afoot.

Sneezy: [raising his hand and pointing to the sink] Hey, someone stole our dishes!

Happy: They ain't stole. They're hid in the cupboard.

Bashful: My cup's been washed. Sugar's gone.

Happy: Something's cooking. Smells good.

Grumpy: [shoving Happy and Dopey away] Don't touch that, you fools! Might be poison.

[the kettle spews steam at the three of them and the lid rattles]

Grumpy: See? It's witch's brew.

Grumpy: Ya crazy fool! Fine time ya picked to sneeze!

Sneezy: I couldn't help it. I can't tell. When you gotta, you gotta.

Snow White: [to the Seven Dwarfs] Please don't send me away. If you do, she'll kill me.

Dwarfs: Kill you?

Happy: Who will?

Sneezy: Yes, who?

Snow White: My stepmother, the queen.

Dwarfs: The Queen!

Bashful: She's wicked!

Happy: She's bad!

Sneezy: She's mighty mean!

Grumpy: She's an old witch! And I'm warnin' ya, if that queen finds her here, she'll swoop down and wreak her vengeance on us!

Snow White: But she doesn't know where I am.

Grumpy: She don't, eh? She knows everything. She's full of black magic! She can even make herself invisible. Pfft! Might be in this room right now!

Grumpy: [watching the Dwarfs washing themselves] Next thing you know, she'll be tyin' your beards up in pink ribbons and smellin' ya up with that stuff called, uh perfume.

Snow White: [to the Seven Dwarfs] If you let me stay, I'll keep house for you. I'll wash and sew and sweep and cook.

Dwarfs: Cook?

Doc: Uh, can you make dapple lumplings? Er, lumple dapplings?

GrumpySleepy: Apple dumplings.

Doc: Yes, crapple dumpkins.

Snow White: Yes, and plum pudding and gooseberry pie.

Dwarfs: Gooseberry pie? Hooray! She stays!

Snow White: Once there was a princess.

Doc: Was this princess you?

Snow White: And she fell in love.

Sneezy: Was it hard to do?

Snow White: It was very easy/anyone could see/that the Prince was charming/the only one for me.

Doc: Was he strong and handsome?

Sneezy: Was he big and tall?

Snow White: There's nobody like him/anywhere at all.

Bashful: Did he say he loved ya?

Happy: Did he steal a kiss?

Snow White: [sung] He was so romantic/I could not resist.

Snow White: I know. We'll clean the house and surprise them. Then, maybe they'll let me stay.

Snow White: [to the Dwarfs] That was fun.

Magic Mirror: Prepare to be amazed beyond all expectations. After all it is what I do.

Snow White: I'm wishing.

Snow White's Echo: I'm wishing.

Bashful: [about Snow White] She's beautiful. Just like a angel!

Grumpy: [the animals are trying to get their attention] They ain't acting this way for nothing!

Sleepy: [Yawning] Maybe the old Queen's, uh, got Snow White.

Dwarfs: [In shock] The Queen! Snow White!

Grumpy: The Queen will kill her! We, we gotta save her!

Doc: Yes! Yes! We, we gotta save her!

Sneezy: She'll kill her!

Happy: What'll we do?

Doc: Yeah, yes, wha-what'll we do?

Grumpy: [Takes charge] Come on!

[leaps onto the back of the nearest deer and rides off]

Doc: [as Dopey hesitantly sneaks up to their room where Snow White is sleeping] Don't be afraid. We're right behind you.

Dwarfs: [chorusing] Yes, we're right behind you.

Dwarfs: [all sniff in unison] Ahh, soup! Hooray!

Snow White: [seeing the Dwarfs' cottage for the first time] Oh, it's adorable! Just like a doll's house.
