Who is she? She's very lovely.
King: A vision... Why, if I were young again... Queen Constantina: Yes, dear? [pause] King: Well, I'd be younger, wouldn't I? Queen Constantina: Yes, dear. Cinderella: The sweetest sounds I'll ever hear are still inside my head / The kindest words I'll ever know are waiting to be said / The most entrancing sight of all is yet for me to see / And the dearest love in all the world is waiting somewhere for me / Is waiting somewhere, somewhere for me. Cinderella: [singing] Am I making believe I see in you a man too perfect to be really true? Do I want you because you're wonderful? Or are you wonderful because I want you? Stepmother: My girls are going to be the envy of everyone at the ball. Stepmother: Beauty knows no pain, girls! Stepmother: I've always been told I've got too big a heart. Calliope, Minerva: You've got too big a heart, mother. Stepmother: Don't cling to the past Cinderella. Its not very attractive. Lionel: Are there any other young women in the house? Stepmother: [speaking in high-pitched voice] How young? Lionel: Younger than you. Cinderella: I doubt he has any idea how a girl should be treated. The Prince: Like a princess, I suppose. Cinderella: No, like a person, with kindness and respect. Cinderella: But shouldn't a man love you for who you are, in spite of everything? Stepmother: How quaint. Tell me, Cinderella, What would you say to capture the prince? Cinderella: I don't know. But whatever I'd say, we'd know in an instant we were meant for each other. Then he'd smile, and kiss my hand... Minerva: That's so romantic. Calliope: Oh, say it again, Cinderella. Stepmother: Rubbish! This isn't about love, it's about marriage. Fairy Godmother: But the world is full of zanies and fools / Who don't believe in sensible rules/ And won't believe what sensible people say / And because these daft and dewey-eyed dopes / Keep building up impossible hopes / Impossible / Things are happening everyday Queen Constantina: So many beautiful girls! He'll meet someone tonight. King: And if he doesn't? Queen Constantina: This ball will never end! Lionel: I don't think we ordered enough food. Queen Constantina:
We're just planning a little get-together, nothing fancy. Just family, a few close friends... and all the eligible young women in the kingdom.
