They're not bad. They're just born that way.


  • Once upon a time, long, long ago... well, more like 20 years ago... Belle married Beast in front of 6,000 of their closest personal friends. Big cake! Yeah, so instead of a honeymoon, Beast united all of the kingdoms and got himself elected king of the United States of Auradon. He rounded up all the villains and sidekicks... basically all the really interesting people... and he booted them off to the Isle of the Lost with a magical barrier to keep them there. This is my hood. No magic. No wi-fi. No way out. Or so I thought. Hang on, you're about to meet us. But first this happened.
  • This is our one chance to prove ourselves to our parents! To prove that we are evil and vicious and ruthless and cruel.
  • [After Jay sets off the alarm at the museum.] Way to go, Jay! Now we have to go to school tomorrow!
  • Nasty. I like that guy.
  • Love is not weak or ridiculous. It's actually really amazing.
  • The strength of evil is good as none, when stands before four hearts as one!
  • (Singing) Break the spell, we were born this way. Be yourself, forget the DNA.


  • I've chosen my first official proclamation... I've decided that the children on the Isle of the Lost be given a chance to live here in Auradon. Every time I look out to the island, I feel like they've been abandoned.
  • I feel... I feel like... like singing your name. Mal, Mal.
  • Your mother is mistress of evil and I've got the poster parents for goodness. But we're not automatically like them. We get to choose who we're gonna be.
  • I can look into your eyes, and I can tell you're not evil.


  • (Singing) The past is past. Forgive, forget. The truth is you ain’t seen nothing yet!
  • I read that they allow dogs in Auradon... Mom said they're rabid pack animals who eat boys who don't behave.
  • (Singing) They think I'm callous, a lowlife hood. I feel so useless. Misunderstood!
  • Can I go back to my game? I'm on level three.
  • I will never forget Mother's Day again.


  • Mirror, mirror on the... in my hand... where is fairy godmother's wand... stand?
  • Mirror, mirror, in my hand, who's the biggest jerk in the land?
  • My mother taught me how to apply blush before I could talk.
  • (Discussing the different types of tears.) They both have antibodies and enzymes, but an emotional tear has more protein-based hormones than a reflex tear.
  • Is my mascara smudged?


  • I don't do uniforms. Unless it's leather, you feel me?
  • You do not want to be at my house at dinner time.
  • (Describes stealing.) It's like buying whatever I want, except it's free.
  • We can do this... if we stick together.
  • Well, let's get this party started!

Fairy Godmother[edit]

  • Leave it like you found it.
  • Welcome to Auradon prep. I'm Fairy Godmother, headmistress.
  • (To Jane.) I love you. But you are on a major time-out.
  • As I always say; "don't focus on the past or you'll miss the future."
  • (To Mal about Maleficent.) You learned to love. So can she.
  • Bibbidi-bobbidi. You know it.
  • Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!


  • (To Mal) The future of the free world rests on your shoulders. Don't blow it.
  • And now you will be making your own memories... by doing exactly as I tell you.
  • People used to cower at the mention of our names! For 20 years I have searched for a way off this island. For 20 years they have robbed us from our revenge!
  • Enough! You all will regret this!

Evil Queen[edit]

  • (Mocking) I'm Snow White, the fairest of them all. Please, she's definitely had work done.
  • Evie! My little evilette in training.
  • Urgh! Smells like common folk.
  • Bring home a prince!


Beast: 16? That's far too young to be crowned king. I didn't make a good decision until I was at least 42.
Belle: Uh, you decided to marry me at 28.
Beast: Well, it was either you or a teapot. [He winks at Ben, who laughs, but Belle scoffs] Kidding.

Maleficent: You will go. You will find fairy godmother and you will bring me back her magic wand. Easy peasy.
Mal: What's in it for us?
Maleficent: Matching thrones. Hers-and-hers crowns.
Calos: Um, I think she meant us. (Points at himself, Mal, Evie and Jay.)

[As the villain kids arrive in Auradon, a huge welcome wagon has been laid out for them. The limo pulls up, and Jay and Carlos roll out, fighting over a comforter.]
Carlos: Ow! You got everything else! Why do you want whatever this is?!
Jay: Coz you want it!

[Mal and Audrey smile, but eye each other disdainfully.]
Audrey: I totally do not blame you for your mother trying to kill my parents and stuff. Oh, my mom's Aurora. Sleeping...
Mal: Beauty. Yeah, I've heard the name, you know, and I totally do not blame your grandparents for inviting everyone in the whole world... but my mother to their stupid christening.

[When the VKs break into the Museum of Cultural History to steal the Fairy Godmother's wand.]
Jay: (smirking) That's your mother's spinning wheel?
Carlos: Yeah, it's kinda dorky.
Mal: It's magic. It doesn't have to look scary.

[In Remedial Goodness 101.]
Fairy Godmother: If someone gives you a crying baby, do you a: curse it, b: lock it in a tower, c: give it a bottle, or d: carve out its heart?
(Evie raises her hand.)
Fairy Godmother: Yes, Evie.
Evie: What was the second one again?
Fairy Godmother: (Smiles, tries not to look disappointed.) Oh, ok. Anybody else?

[After Mal gives Lonnie beautiful hair.]
Lonnie: It's just... (rips the bottom her dress.) Now I'm cool!
Mal: Like ice.
Jane: (Rips the bottom her dress too before looking shocked.) What did I just do?! My mom's gonna kill me!

Mal: Coz we're rotten...
All VKs: To the core.

[While Mal is making cookies containing a love spell.]
Lonnie: It could use some chips.
Jay: Chips?
Mal: And those are?
Lonnie: Chocolate chips. Just the most important food group. Wait, didn't your moms ever make you guys chocolate chip cookies? Like, when you were feeling sad, and they're fresh from the oven, with a big old glass of milk, and she just makes you laugh and puts everything into perspective and... why are you all looking at me like that?
(The VKs look both thoughtful and downcast.)
Mal: It's just different where we're from.
Lonnie: Yeah, I know. I just, you know, I thought... even villains love their kids.
(Again the VK's expressions remain disheartened.)
Lonnie: Oh... how awful.

Jay: Are you feeling kinda weird about this? I mean... it's not so bad here, you know.
Mal: Are you insane?! Long live evil! You're mean! You're awful! You're bad news! Snap out of it!
Jay: Thanks, Mal. I needed that.

[Mal thinks Ben is drowning and dives in to save him, only to nearly drown herself and Ben to save her.]
Mal: Ben! Ugh! You scared me!
Ben: You can't swim?
Mal: No!
Ben: You live on an island!
Mal: Yeah, with a barrier around it, remember? Ugh!
Ben: (touched) And you still tried to save me?
Mal: Yeah! And do you thank me?! No! All I get is soaking wet!

Mal: I don't know what love feels like.
Ben: Maybe I can teach you.

Evie: M, what d'you think are parents are gonna do if we don't pull this off?
Mal: I think they'll be... quietly disappointed in us, but ultimately... proud of us for doing our best.
Carlos: Really?
Mal: No, I think we are definitely goners.

Queen Leah: Hello.
Mal: Hi.
Queen Leah: Have we met?
Mal: No, I don't think so. I'm new. I'm sorta like a Transfer student.
Queen Leah: Ah.
Audrey: Grammy!
Queen Leah: Oh, Audrey! Give Grammy a kiss, dear.
Mal: "Grammy"?
Audrey: Sleeping Beauty's mother. (Mal nods nervously.) Grammy, I don't think you want to be talking to this girl. Unless you feel like taking another hundred-year nap.
Queen Leah: What? (Mal looks at her awkwardly.) You?! How are you here? And how have you stayed so young?
Ben: Queen Leah, it's ok. Maleficent is still on the island. This is her daughter, Mal. Don't you remember my proclamation to give the new generation a chance?
Queen Leah: A chance to what, Ben? Destroy us? You remember? The poison apples? And the spells? Spells... (To Mal.) My daughter was raised by fairies because of your mother's curse. (Mal looks at her, obviously ashamed.) So her first words, her first steps, I missed it all!
(She looks close to tears and so does Mal, who takes an apologetic step towards her.)
Mal: I'm so sor...
Chad: Go away! Stay away from her!
Ben: Don't do this, Chad.
Chad: What?! They were raised by their parents, Ben. What do you think villains teach their kids, huh? Kindness? Fair play? No way! Ok? (To Mal.) You stole another girl's boyfriend! (To Jay.) You enjoy hurting people! (To Evie.) And you! You're nothing but a gold digger and a cheater.
Evie: Mirror, mirror in my hand, who's the biggest jerk in the land?

[Mal feels guilty about bewitching Ben, so has given him a snack filled with anti-love potion.]
Mal: Do you feel ok?
Ben: You bet.
Mal: Would you say that you're still in... that... that you have very strong feelings for me?
Ben: I'm not sure. I mean, let's give the anti-love potion a few minutes to take effect.
Mal: Yeah... ok. (Looks at him in shock, Ben laughs.) What?! You knew?!
Ben: That you spelled me? Yeah, I knew.
Mal: (Anxiously) I can explain myself!
Ben: No, look, it's fine. I mean, you had a crush on me. I was with Audrey. You didn't trust that it could happen on its own. Am I right?
Mal: (Hastily) Yes! You're so right. So, then, how long have you known?
Ben: Since our first date. Your spell washed away in the Enchanted Lake.
Mal: So what, you've just been... faking it since then?
(Ben kisses her hand and speaks sincerely.)
Ben: I haven't been faking anything. (Mal looks both touched and surprised.)

[Mal has taken the wand off Jane after she tried to use magic on herself to make herself beautiful.]
Ben: Mal, give me the wand.
Mal: (Nervously) Stand back.
Ben: It's ok.
Mal: (Distressed) Ben, I said stand back!
Audrey: I told you so!
Carlos: (To Mal anxiously) Let's go.
Jay: (Uneasily) Revenge time.
Ben: You really wanna do this?
Mal: We have no choice, Ben! Our parents...
Ben: Your parents made their choice. Now you make yours.
(For a long time Mal looks awkwardly around the room at the Aurodonians.)
Mal: (Quietly) I think I wanna be good.
Ben: You are good!
Mal: How do you know that?!
Ben: Because... because I'm listening to my heart.
Mal: I wanna listen to my heart, too. And it is telling me that we are not our parents. (To Jay.) I mean, stealing things doesn't make you happy. Tourney and victory pizza with the team makes you happy. (To Carlos.) And you, scratching dude's belly makes you happy. Who would've thought? And Evie... you do not have to play dumb to get a guy. You are so smart. And I don't want to take over the world with evil. It doesn't make me happy. I want to go to school... and be with Ben. (Tearfully.) Because Ben makes me really happy. Us being friends makes me really happy. Not destroying things. I choose good, you guys.
(She holds out her fist to begin a group fist-bump. There is pause before another fist joins Mal's revealing to be Jay's.)
Jay: I choose good too.
Evie: (Joins in.) I choose good.
Carlos: Wait, just to be clear... we don't have to worry about how really mad are parents are gonna be? (Laughs.) Coz they're gonna be really, really mad!
Ben: Your parents can't reach you here.
Carlos: Ok, then. Good. (Puts his fist with the other VKs and is soon joined by Ben's.)
