The Princess Diaries (2001) Poster

Anne Hathaway: Mia Thermopolis



  • Michael : Why me?

    Mia : Because you saw me when I was invisible.

  • Mia : I can't be a princess! I'm still waiting for normal body parts to arrive!

  • Mia : I can't do this, I'm a girl.

    Gym Teacher Harbula : What am I? A duck?

  • Mia : Hey Joe? Can we park a block away from school? I really don't want to cause a riot with this hearse.

    Joe : This is a non-riot hearse. And if it were a hearse there would be silence in the backseat.

  • Queen Clarisse Renaldi : Amelia, you look so... young.

    Mia : Thank you. And you look so...

    [long pause] 

    Mia : ... clean.

  • Queen Clarisse Renaldi : You are princess of Genovia.

    Mia : Me, a princess?


    Mia : Shut up!

    Queen Clarisse Renaldi : I beg your pardon, "Shut up"?

    Consulate Maitre'D : Oh, your majesty, in America, it doesn't always mean to be quiet. Here it could mean "Wow, gee whiz, golly wolly"...

  • Joe : This is between a waltz and a tango.

    Mia : It's a wango?

  • Mia : Joseph, can we eighty-six the flags please?

    Joe : No. The flags allow me to park anywhere. We keep the flags.

    Mia : Sorry, Joseph.

    Joe : You can call me, "Joe".

    Mia : "Joey"?


    Joe : [Chuckles then abruptly turns serious]  No. Joe.

  • Paolo : [removes Mia's glasses]  Do you wear contact lenses?

    Mia : Oh, I have them, but I don't really like to wear them that much.

    Paolo : [he breaks her glasses in half]  Now... you do!

    Mia : [shocked]  You broke my glasses!

    Paolo : You broke my brush.

  • Mia : [driving in the rain]  Is this punishment for driving without a licensed driver in the front seat?

    [lies down on the front seat] 

    Mia : I am invisible, and I am wet.

  • Mia : Okay... you know what? I don't feel protected. You try living for 15 years thinking that you're one person, and then in five minutes, you find out you're a princess. Just in case I wasn't enough of a freak already, let's add a tiara!

  • Mia : [voiceover]  Dear Diary, today is my first official day as Princess of Genovia. We'll land in a few hours, and I'll meet Parliament and the people before beginning my royal duties. Mom is, of course, moving to Genovia with me, and we'll continue painting - without the balloons. Lilly and Michael are planning to spend their summer vacation at our - can you believe it - palace. They're even having my Mustang brought over, which I can legally drive in two weeks. Grandma's so glad to be going home, and Joseph - well, he's watching nearby as usual. Everybody's got pre-coronation jitters, including me. Everybody that is, except Fat Louie. He's totally adapted to being a royal. I guess he was one all along.

    Joe : [voiceover]  Princess, look out the window... and welcome to Genovia.

  • Helen Thermopolis : This is getting us nowhere! Talk to me!

    Mia : I can't talk to you right now; I'm late for a meeting with my guidance counselor.

    Queen Clarisse Renaldi : I'm late for a meeting with Spain and *Portugal*!

  • Mia : Hey, Joe?

    Joe : Mm-Hmmm?

    Mia : I'm gonna turn the backseat into a dressing room so I can change into a proper outfit for Madame, OK?

    Joe : OK. And don't forget your shoes.

    Mia : Ahh, thanks.

    Joe : Strange town, San Francisco. When I purchased the pumps, they asked if I wanted them wrapped or if I was going to wear them.

  • Mia : [Responding to Lilly's insults]  Lilly! Just stop it, okay? Just because your hair sucks, get off mine!

  • Lilly : Michael, don't always think you could get a ride with us and...

    [sees Mia's new look] 

    Lilly : Oy. Who destroyed you?

    Mia : Oh. You-you think it looks that bad?

    Lilly : You look ridiculous. You should sue.

    Mia : Well um... I know it's a little straighter and shorter and...

    Lilly : Weirder!

    [Get's in limo] 

    Michael : An attractive weirder.

    Lilly : No, it's not attractive!

    Joe : Seat belts, please.

    Lilly : What I really can't understand is that you ditched me again yesterday when I really needed your help at the greenpeace petition.

    [picks up bag] 

    Lilly : These bags! You HAVE one of these bags? You know, we could hock that and feed a whole third world country!

    [Looks at Michael] 

    Lilly : Am I right?

    Michael : No.

    Joe : If there are no more passengers, I think we should close the door.

  • Helen Thermopolis : Mia, the-the three of us have to talk.

    Mia : Oh, OK. Um, is there maybe something else about me and my life that just maybe I might want to know about? Um-oh no, are you two waiting to take me on a talk show somewhere and to let me know I have a twin sister who's a duchess?

    Queen Clarisse Renaldi : You have a cousin who's a contessa. Fondly known as Bartholomew. Actually, we call him Pookie.

  • Mia : You'll never guess what Josh Bryant just asked me!

    Michael : "Can I borrow a comb"?

  • Mia : [on her green bathing suit]  Okay I look like an asparagus.

    Helen Thermopolis : But a very, very cute asparagus!

  • Mia : You know, most kids hope for a car for their 16th birthday, not a country!

  • Mia : Somebody sat on me again.

  • Mia : And then I realized how many stupid times a day I used the word "I". In fact, probably all I ever do is think about myself. And how lame is that when there's, like, 7 billion other people out there on the planet and when -

    [Grandmother clears throat] 

  • Mia : As always, this is as good as it's going to get.

  • Mia : Tell me, how does my mother, or any person for that matter, go into a parent/teacher conference and come out with a date?

  • Mia : Now, what did you want to tell me?

    Queen Clarisse Renaldi : Something that, I think, will have a very big impact upon your life.

    Mia : I already have braces.

    Queen Clarisse Renaldi : No, it's bigger than orthodontia.

  • Queen Clarisse Renaldi : So, where are you taking me?

    Mia : Well, uh, do you have any change?

    Queen Clarisse Renaldi : No. It's not appropriate for royalty to jingle.

    Mia : Okay, I'll get the change.

    [cuts to a game arcade] 

  • Mia : I don't want to rule my own country, I just want to pass the tenth grade.

  • Mia : [to her cat, Fat Louie]  You are so lucky you don't know who your parents are.

  • Helen Thermopolis : Where are you going?

    Mia : I'm going up to straighten the royal bedchamber.

  • Gym Teacher Harbula : Bobby Bad, hang up the phone.

    Bobby Bad : [on his cell phone]  Yes, Mom, I'll go to the dentist after school.

    Mia : I hate it when they move in like that.

    Gym Teacher Harbula : Mia, it's not a championship game, it's not even a *big* game, it's just gym class. Just hit the ball. I don't want to flunk you in gym class. C'mon, you can do it. Keep your eye on the ball.

  • Helen Thermopolis : That Backstreet Boy clone you've had a crush on for years?

    Mia : He's not a Backstreet Boy clone.

  • Helen Thermopolis : [comforting Mia after she's been humiliated at the beach party]  My mom always told me l couldn't cry and toId me to be a big girl. But you've been hurt, so you just cry, okay?

    Mia : It was really bad. My foot didn't even pop!
