Quotes

[last lines]

Rosaleen: Little girls, this seems to say / Never stop upon your way / Never trust a stranger friend / No-one knows how it will end / As you're pretty, so be wise / Wolves may lurk in every guise / Now as then, 'tis simple truth / Sweetest tongue has sharpest tooth.

Mother: You pay too much attention to your granny. She knows a lot but she doesn't know everything. And if there's a beast in men, it meets its match in women too.

Rosaleen: [hears wolves howl] Who's come to sing us carols, then?

Huntsman: Only my companions, darling. I love the company of wolves. Look out of the window and you'll see them.

Rosaleen: [a lock of Granny's hair singes in the fireplace] Is that all you left of her? Your kind can't stomach hair, can you? Even if the worst wolves are hairy on the inside.

Huntsman: What do you know about my kind?

Rosaleen: [takes out a knife] My Granny told me plenty!

[the huntsman restrains her]

Huntsman: Are you very much afraid?

Rosaleen: It wouldn't do me much good to be afraid, would it? My, what big eyes you have.

Huntsman: All the better to see you with.

Huntsman: They say seeing is believing, but I'd never swear to it.

Alice: [knocks on the door] They want you downstairs! You have to come out sometime; you can't sulk in there forever! Open the door! You've been at my lipstick too, haven't you? Pest!

[Rosaleen is shown tossing and turning in bed]

Alice: What makes you so different anyway, Buck-Teeth? Come on out, pest! It's not because I want you; it's because mummy wants you. Pest, pest, pest...
