Prince Derek: What? You're all I ever wanted. You're beautiful!
Odette: Thank you. But what else?
Prince Derek: What else?
Odette: Is beauty all that matters to you?:
Queen Uberta: Derek, what else?
Prince Derek: [stammers; to Odette] What else is there?
[Rogers imitates a buzzer]

Rogers: What else is there?! She says, "Is beauty all that matters?", and you say, "What else is there?"!
Prince Derek: It was dumb. I know!
Rogers: You should write a book: How To Offend Women In Five Syllables Or Less.
Bromley: Your turn, Prince Derek.
Derek: I did not know what else to say.
Bromley: [cheating at chess, takes Derek's queen] You lost your queen, Derek!
Derek: That's twice in one day!
Rogers: Think, you must see something other than Odette's beauty.
Prince Derek: Of course I do, Rogers. She’s like… You know! How about… And then… Am I right? I don't know how to say it. I'll prove it to her. I'll prove my love. Checkmate!

Rothbart: [to Odette, after kidnapping her] Once you steal something, you spend your whole life fighting to keep it. But, if I marry the only heir to the throne... We'll rule your father's Kingdom together, legally. King and Queen. You know...
Odette: Never!
Rothbart: Where are you going? As soon as moonlight leaves the lake, you turn back into the swan. No matter where you are.

Rogers: The musicians are not happy.
Prince Derek: [ready for target practice] I know, but I have to practice.
Rogers: Oh, no complains here. I think, it's going to be lots of fun.
Prince Derek: [ready for target practice] The Great Animal's never gonna give her up without a fight.
Rogers: You're not still thinking she's alive?
Prince Derek: When I find the Great Animal, Rogers, I'll find Odette.
Rogers: Oh, Derek. You've looked everywhere. She's not coming back. The whole kingdom knows that.
Prince Derek: The whole kingdom's wrong! Odette's alive, and I'm gonna find her.

Odette: You're being sneaky again, Jean-Bob!
Jean-Bob: What sneaky? You deserve a nice bouquet!
Odette: And you deserve a kiss.
Jean-Bob: Well, all right! [puckers up]
Odette: You know I'm under a spell!
Jean-Bob: But my kiss would break ze spell!
Speed: Give it up, Jean-Bob.
Odette: I can only kiss the man I love, and then he...
Jean-Bob: Must make a vow of "everlasting love". I know - !
Odette: And prove it to the world!
Jean-Bob: WHAT do you think I was doing with ze flowers and ze alligators going "CHOMP CHOMP"?
Odette: Speed, make him understand.
Speed: I'm only a turtle.

Rothbart: All it takes is just one little word. Will you... marry me?
Odette: Every night you ask the same question.
Rothbart: No! No!
Odette: And every night I give you the same answer...
Rothbart: DON'T!
Odette: ...I'll die first.
Rothbart: You know... you are really starting to bug me!
Odette: I would think you'd be use to it by now.
Rothbart: THAT'S IT! Just keep pushing it! But someday I'm gonna BOIL OVER!
Odette: Go ahead then! But I'll never give you my father's kingdom!
Rothbart: I knew it. I was hoping, you would say "You'll be mine." But it looks as if you need another day to think about it.

Jean-Bob: Whenever I have to do something in a hurry, I'll always bring a turtle.

Puffin: Me name is Puffin. Lt. Puffin.
Odette: It's a pleasure, Lt. Puffin. I'm Odette. Princess Odette. [Puffin kisses her hand] And these are my best friends in the whole world: Mr. Lorenzo Trudgealong...
Speed: Friends call me Speed.
Odette: ...and Jean-Bob.
Jean-Bob: I have no friends. Only servants. And they call me "your highness".
Speed: [whispers to Puffin] Thinks he's a prince.

Queen Uberta: Oh! wonderful. Just make sure, you are here tomorrow night.
Prince Derek: Tomorrow night?
Queen Uberta: The ball...
Prince Derek: Mother, I can't. Please mother, don't do the lip thing. If I leave now, maybe, I can be back in time.
Queen Uberta: Oh! Thank you, darling.
Prince Derek: But please, mother, don't turn it into one of your beauty pageants.
Queen Uberta: Oh! No, no, no, no, no! It's just a few friends... [waits until Derek is out of earshot] ...And, their daughters... I want this to be big. Every princess must have her own introduction.
Chamberlain: But you said...
Queen Uberta: Forget what I said. Now, send for the cooks and tell the band to start rehearsing. And I want four footmen for every carriage.

Speed: I think I pulled a muscle.
Jean-Bob: I'm gonna die! I know it! I'm on a mission with a lame turtle!

Odette: [dying from Rothbart's curse] Derek... I-I feel so weak... I think...I'm...
Prince Derek: No. You'll live, Odette. The vow I made was for you.
Odette: I know. I love you, Derek. [dies]
Prince Derek: Odette? Odette! [Breaks down in grief and anger] I made the vow for her. Do you hear? THE VOW I MADE WAS FOR HER!
Rothbart: [appears behind Derek] No need to shout!
[Derek, furious, turns around and confronts Rothbart]
Prince Derek: Don't let her die.
Rothbart: Is that a threat?
Prince Derek: Don't you dare let her die!
Rothbart: [mockingly] Oh, it is a threat.
Prince Derek: You're the only one with the power! Now, do it!
Rothbart: [throws him aside] Only if you!

[Last lines]

Princess Odette: Will you love me, Derek? Until the day I die?
Prince Derek: No, Odette, much longer. Much longer.
[They kiss]
