The Lord of Darkness: Oh, Mother Night! Fold your dark arms about me. Protect me in your black embrace. I sit alone, an impotent exile, whilst this form, this presence, returns to torment me!
Blix: Black as midnight, black as pitch, blacker than the foulest witch.
Princess Lily: You are nothing but an animal!
The Lord of Darkness: [laughs] We are all animals m'lady.
Oona: What care I for human hearts? Soft and spiritless as porridge! A faerie's heart beats fierce and free!
The Lord of Darkness: I require the solace of the shadows and the dark of the night. Sunshine is my destroyer.
The Lord of Darkness: You think you have won! What is light without dark? What are you without me? I am a part of you all. You can never defeat me. We are brothers eternal!
The Lord of Darkness: Every wolf suffers fleas. 'Tis easy enough to scratch!
Princess Lily: I hear a throat begging to be cut!
The Lord of Darkness: Are you so eager to see blood flow?
Princess Lily: As eager as you are to drink it!
Princess Lily: Are you afraid to kiss me, Jack?
Jack: I'm afraid you'll break my heart.
Princess Lily: Then still your heart, for you are dear to me as life itself.
The Lord of Darkness: The dreams of youth are the regrets of maturity.
[playing with the unicorn's horn]
Blix: Higher, higher, burning fire, making music like a choir!
Princess Lily: This place holds more magic for me than any palace in the world.
Blix: May be innocent, may be sweet... ain't half as nice as rotting meat.
Blix: Magic horn is mine, mine, mine! Now all creatures will love the night, and worship goblins as divine.
Blunder: You shouldn't talk like that, Blix.
Blix: Why not? I've got the power now.
Blunder: [spits] Plenty big puff!
Pox: [to Blix] You only got the shot in 'cause the Princess was there! Wrong! 'Twas Beauty led the Beast to bay!
Blunder: She was so sweet, I could eat her brains like jam!
Pox: I could suck her bones...
Blix: Enough! Better hurry. Dark Lord, he don't like to wait.
Honeythorn Gump: Love you say? Well love is another matter.
[the goblins spy on the unicorns]
Blunder: [pointing] Look! Ugly one-horned mule!
Blix: Mortal world turned to ice... Here be goblin paradise!
Jack: How do you know my name?
[cranes head away in annoyance from Oona, who is buzzing around his head]
Jack: Stop it! Go away!
Honeythorn Gump: I know everything, Jack. Yet I do not understand what has happened today. Suppose you tell me, Jack? You know these woods as well as any elf. Did you not see something odd today, any strange spirits? Did nothing untoward happen?
Jack: I took Lily to see the unicorn...
Honeythorn Gump: [In outrage] You did WHAT?
[the other elves chatter noisily]
Honeythorn Gump: SILENCE!
Meg Mucklebones: What a fine fat boy you are, Jack!
Jack: You don't really mean to eat me, do you, ma'am?
Meg Mucklebones: Oh, indeed I do!
Jack: That would be a shame because someone as fair and lovely as yourself, Miss Meg, deserves far better than scrawny me. Don't you think?
Meg Mucklebones: Think me fair, do you, Jack?
Jack: All the heavenly angels must envy your beauty.
Meg Mucklebones: [cackles] What a fine meal you'll make, be the rest of you as sweet as your tongue!
