Wenceslas: [singing] With such a handsome robe to sit in, anyone could rule Great Britain! The Emperor: [the Emperor doesn't want to be overdressed] I don't want to blind them, I just want them to blink a little. Prime Minister: The people are clamoring for you, Your Majesty. The Emperor: They're not clamoring very loud. Prime Minister: But they're our best clamorers... The Emperor: Tell them I want more clamoring. I want more clamor! The Emperor: The collar's always around the neck, the sleeves always come off the shoulders, the waist always goes around the middle! When will they invent something original? Henry Dispenser: [singing] Don't call it a crime, call it an adventure! Don't call me a cheat, call me an explorer, off on a journey, out of the rut we're in! The Emperor: Why does everyone argue with me? I'm the Emperor! Henry Dispenser: We are weavers of distinction, Your Majesty. The Emperor: Would the pants have two legs? Henry Dispenser: How many would Your Majesty like? The Emperor: Five! Then when you're walking around, you can go jumping from leg to leg to leg to leg to leg to leg to leg to leg to leg to leg... The Emperor: How do you spin a thread out of a solid diamond? Henry Dispenser: Ah! That is a family secret! The Emperor: I think this will be very good for the kingdom. It will weed out all those people who try to bluff their way through life. Prime Minister: [Prince Nino is no match for Princess Gilda] The marriage contract has already been agreed. The Emperor: They better have a lotta money. And I mean, a lotta money! Prime Minister: Unfortunately, they have. The Emperor: No, I mean a LOTTA money! And I wanna count it! The Emperor: [the tailors use strange measurements] Duke, you realize I have bigger whoopets than the Maharajah? Duke: Oh, congratulations, Your Majesty. The Emperor: Thank you. I wonder what they are. I hope it's nice. Duke: I can't see a thing. I AM unfit for my office. My wife was absolutely right! The Emperor: Blue? Red? There's only one way to settle this. I'll have to see the cloth myself. The Emperor: [the invisible cloth] Everybody'll think I'm stupid. I can't be, I'm the Emperor. The Emperor: It's diamond thread! Diamond makes a spectrum, and blue and red make... Duke: Uh... reddy-blue? Prime Minister: Uh... bluey-red? The Emperor: Blue and red make PURPLE! The Emperor: We'll have your wedding dress made out of the same material. Princess Gilda: No! The Emperor: You don't have to baloney me any more, Wenceslas. Prime Minister: Your Majesty, I take it this is one suit of clothes that will not be in the museum. The Emperor: Wrong! This suit of clothes will have a place of honor in the museum, to show that even an Emperor can be wrong. The Emperor: [the Prime Minister and the Duke admit their stupidity] But I, as Emperor, was OVERPOWERINGLY stupid... I, as Emperor, was more stupid than you all, because I was responsible for all this stupidity!
