Cinderella (2021): The 10 Best Quotes

While there have been countless retellings of the famous fairy tale over the years, Amazon Prime's new Cinderella takes a different approach to the story by infusing the adaptation with a more contemporary tone, which is also evident in the way that the characters speak. Rather than speaking in period-appropriate verbiage, the characters all use more modern dialogue.

This updated dialogue leads to some funny, powerful, and uplifting quotes that give the film its own unique voice. From quirky jokes to inspirational encouragement and thoughtful observations, Cinderella is filled with memorable lines that will stay with fans long after the movie ends.

10 "Kings Marry For Power, Not For Love." - King Rowan

When Prince Robert expresses his doubt about being able to find a princess with whom he can fall in love, King Rowan responds with this quote about the transactional nature of marriages within the monarchy. He is more concerned with securing strategic alliances than he is with his son's happiness.

This type of mentality is indicative of the established system that Cinderella and the other characters combat throughout the film. It is a short and snappy way to summarize the entire out-of-date ideology.

9 "Let's Not Ruin This Incredibly Magical Moment With Reason." - Fabulous Godmother

Despite their limited screentime, Fabulous Godmother is one of the best characters in 2021's Cinderella and immediately leaves a strong impression on the viewer. Understandably, Cinderella is unsure if what she is seeing is real, and expresses that they might be a figment of her imagination, which leads Fabulous Godmother to say this quote.

This quote sums up the perfect attitude for fans of fairy tales. The movie may be filled with period inaccurate songs, dialogue, and attitudes, but logic and historical accuracy should not get in the way of fans enjoying the magic of the movie.

8 "Everyone Knows Mice Are Girls And Rats Are Boys." - Cinderella

When Fabulous Godmother transforms the three mice into footmen, Cinderella is surprised to learn that her rodent friends have been males all along. The mice are the funniest characters in the movie and this quote leads to a hilarious back and forth exchange between them and Cinderella.

Jokes such as this highlight the quirky sense of humor that helps differentiate it from previous versions of the famous fairy tale. It is a funny line that helps make Cinderella an even more endearing character.

7 "Saying 'Love' And Showing Love Are Two Very Different Things." - Queen Beatrice

When King Rowan is frustrated that Prince Robert won't just marry a princess, Queen Beatrice points out that perhaps it is their loveless marriage that has convinced him to marry for love. While he insists that he does love her, she explains that he does not show it anymore as he used to when they first got together.

The expanded subplot that examines the relationship between the king and queen is one of the best changes that the movie makes from the original story. Her quote addresses the issue that a relationship can run into overtime unless intentional effort is invested into it.

6 "I Think You Look So Pretty. But Honestly, Who Cares What I Think? What Matters Is How You Feel When You Look In The Mirror." - Cinderella

As Cinderella's stepsisters are getting ready to go out, Narissa asks for affirmation about the way she looks. Cinderella encourages her by pointing out that it is her opinion of herself, not the opinion of others, that actually matters. The quote is then followed by Malvolia humorously saying to herself, "That's deep."

This quote is an excellent encapsulation of the empowered, self-confident philosophy that drives the film. This version of Cinderella is not dependent on the approval or opinion of anyone else and quotes such as this convey her inner strength.

5 "I Have Every Right To Make It Taller. I'm King." - King Rowan

While King Rowan is in the middle of expressing his anger with Prince Robert, Queen Beatrice interrupts to ask if King Rowan has actually increased the height of his throne to be taller than hers. Unashamedly, he expresses his belief that he has the right to elevate himself and his throne over everyone else, apparently including her.

The line is part of a funny exchange that helps establish the dynamic between the two characters in an entertaining one. With this one line, it is clear to the audience that King Rowan is petty and obsessed with the way he is perceived, even to the detriment of his marriage.

4 "You're Literally Not Even Going To Let Me Have A Seat At The Table?" - Princess Gwen

At the end of a tense conversation between King Rowan and Prince Robert, in which Prince Robert finally agrees to have the ball, Princess Gwen tries to join the meeting but is rebuffed. As she leaves, she points out the symbolism of being denied the opportunity to even sit in the room where the meeting is taking place.

Throughout the story, Princess Gwen proves over and over again that she is one of the smartest characters in the film, and more than deserving of the opportunity to have her voice heard. Like many of the characters in the movie, she is trying to challenge the expected norms and earn respect.

3 "I Know What It Feels Like To Not Quite Fit Into The Crate You Were Born Into." - Prince Robert

While undercover as a commoner, Prince Robert offers to help Cinderella sell her dresses if she attends the ball. When she wonders why he would be so willing to help a stranger like her, he explains that he can sympathize with her desire to break out of the box that other people want to put her in.

This line is a great representation of one of the movie's central and most important themes. Many of the characters are seeking to chase their dreams, even if that means defying the expectations that others have for them.

2 "I Don't Want A Life Stuck Waving From A Royal Box Any More Than A Life Confined To A Basement." - Cinderella

In a drastic departure from the traditional story, Prince Robert recognizes Cinderella at the ball and offers to choose her as his bride, but she rejects the opportunity to become a princess, as she knows that becoming part of the royal family would mean giving up her dream of opening her own business.

While most versions of the story depict marrying the prince and becoming a princess as the happy ending for Cinderella, this film takes a different approach and gives the character goals and ambitions that go beyond a relationship. For Cinderella, she must overcome anything that stops her from pursuing her dreams, even if that means turning down the prince.

1 "Nothing In Life Ever Stays The Same, Good Or Bad." - Fabulous Godmother

When Fabulous Godmother transforms Cinderella by using magic to give her everything she needs to go to the ball in style, they warn her that the magic will eventually wear off, necessitating her exit. She questions why the magic is not permanent, but Fab G explains that nothing in life is permanent.

The line is a surprisingly poignant observation about the nature of life and speaks directly to the film's central theme about the way that life, society, and relationships are constantly changing. Rather than fighting the changes, the movie encourages viewers to embrace change and continue chasing after their dreams.

Have a Ball With These Memorable Cinderella Quotes

Cinderella is one of our favorite animated Disney movies of all time, and while watching it again recently, we realized it’s incredibly quotable, too! Cinderella, Gus, Jaq, Lady Tremaine, the Grand Duke: they all say some pretty iconic stuff. All the characters do, in fact. As a wise Fairy Godmother once said, "Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo." It’s Cinderella quotes time!


“Well, serves you right, spoiling people’s best dreams.”

“Oh, that clock. Old killjoy.”

“Well, there's one thing: they can't order me to stop dreaming.”

“It is a little snug. But it'll have to do! Now, for a name. I've got one. Octavius. But for short, we'll call you Gus.”

“I'm sorry if your highness objects to an early breakfast. It's certainly not my idea to feed you first—it's orders.”

“So if you don't want to lose a nice, warm bed, you'd better get rid of those dreams. Know how? Just learn to like cats!”

“I know it isn't easy, but at least we should try to get along together. And that includes you, your majesty.”

“After all, I'm still a member of the family. And it says, 'By royal command, every eligible maiden is to attend.'”

“What's a royal ball? After all, I suppose it would be frightfully dull, and boring, and completely ... completely wonderful.”

“Oh, it's a beautiful dress! Did you ever see such a beautiful dress? And look! Glass slippers. Why, it's like a dream. A wonderful dream come true.”

“Thank you. Thank you so much, for everything.”

“Your Grace, please wait! May I try it on?”

“But, you see ... I have the other slipper.”

Lady Tremaine

"Now, let me see ... There's the large carpet in the main hall. Clean it! And the windows, upstairs and down. Wash them! Oh yes. And the tapestries and the draperies. Do them again! And don't forget the garden. And scrub the terrace, sweep the halls and the stairs, clean the chimneys, and of course there's the mending and the sewing and the laundry. Oh yes, and one more thing. See that Lucifer gets his bath.”

“Above all: self control.”

“Well, I see no reason why you can't go, if you get all your work done. And if you can find something suitable to wear.”

“Of course ... I said ‘If.’”

“How very clever. These beads, they give it just the right touch. Don't you think so, Drizella?”

“The glass slipper is their only clue. The Duke has been ordered to try it on every girl in the kingdom. And if one can be found whom the slipper fits, then, by the King's command, that girl shall be the Prince's bride.”

Prince Charming

“Oh no, wait, you can’t go now, it’s only – “


“New mouse in the house! Brand new! Never saw it before!”

“We like you. Cinderelly likes you too.”

“Did you ever see a cat-cat?”

“Lucify not funny. Lucify mean.”


“Take it easy, cluck-cluck.”

“Surprised, surprised, very surprised.”

“Happy birthday!”

Grand Duke

“But, Your Majesty! If the prince should suspect?”

“Well, if I may say so, Your Majesty, I did try to warn you, but you, sire, are incurably romantic. No doubt you saw the whole pretty picture in detail. The young Prince bowing to the assembly. Suddenly, he stops. He looks up. For, lo, there she stands. The girl of his dreams. Who she is or whence she came, he knows not. Nor does he care. But his heart tells him that here, here is the maid predestined to be his bride. A pretty plot for fairy tales, sire, but in real life. Oh no, no. It was foredoomed to failure.”

“Your Majesty, I see no point in beating about the bush. I regret to inform you, sire, that the young lady has disappeared, leaving behind only this glass slipper.”

“The Prince, sire, swears he'll marry none but the girl who fits this slipper.”

“My orders were ‘Every maiden.’ Come, my child.”

The King

“My son has been avoiding his responsibilities long enough. It's high time he married and settled down.”

“I am patient!”

“I'm not getting any younger, you know. I want to see my grandchildren before I go.”

“I want to hear the pitter-patter of little feet again.”

“Love. Ha! Just a matter of a boy meeting a girl under the right conditions.”

“Soft lights, romantic music, all the trimmings! It can't possibly fail!”

“And see that every eligible maid is there!”

“I can't understand it. There must be at least one who'd make a suitable mother!”

“You will stay right here. See they're not disturbed. And when the boy proposes, notify me immediately.”

Fairy Godmother

“If you'd lost all your faith, I couldn't be here. And here I am!”

“You can't go to the ball looking like that!”

“But we have to hurry, because even miracles take a little time.”

“I'd say the first thing you need is ... a pumpkin.”

“You can't go to the ball without a horse.”

“But instead of a horse, well a coachman of course!”

“Bruno, that's right! You'll be footman tonight. Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!”

“Just leave it to me, what a gown this will be!”

“But like all dreams, I'm afraid this won't last forever.”

“On the stroke of twelve, the spell will be broken, and everything will be as it was before.”


“Well, it's about time. Don't forget the mending! Don't be all day getting it done, either.”

“She put it there! A big, ugly mouse! Under my teacup.”

“And I'm so eligible.”

“I'd be honored, Your Highness. Would you mind holding my broom?”

“I don't see why everybody else seems to have such nice things to wear, and I always end up in these old rags! This sash! I wouldn't be seen dead in it.”

“I knew it was my slipper. Exactly my size. I always wear the same size.”

“Well, it may be a trifle snug today. You know how it is, dancing all night.”


"Take that ironing and have it back in an hour! One hour, you hear?"

"Why, that's my slipper!"


“Although he was a kind and devoted father, and gave his beloved child every luxury and comfort, still he felt she needed a mother's care. And so, he married again, choosing for his second wife, a woman of good family, with two daughters just Cinderella's age, by name: Anastasia and Drizella.”

“It was upon the untimely death of this good man, however, that this stepmother's true nature was revealed. Cold, cruel, and bitterly jealous of Cinderella's charm and beauty, she was grimly determined to forward the interests of her own two awkward daughters.”

"Once upon a time, in a faraway land, there was a tiny kingdom. peaceful, prosperous, and rich in romance and tradition. Here, in a stately chateau, there lived a widowed gentleman, and his little daughter Cinderella.”

“Thus, as time went by, the chateau fell into disrepair, for the family fortunes were squandered upon the vain and selfish stepsisters, while Cinderella was abused, humiliated, and finally forced to become a servant in her own house.”

“And yet, through it all, Cinderella remained ever gentle and kind, for with each dawn she found new hope that someday, her dreams of happiness would come true.”

Reading all these quotes just reminded us what an incredible movie Cinderella is! Time to put on our glass slippers and gostream Cinderella now on Disney+!

Cinderella Quotes

When we first met, i had no idea you would be so important to me

Men go shopping to buy what they need. Women go shopping to find out what they want

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work

Having you in my life made everything better

Money may not buy happiness, but it's better to cry in a Lamborghini

The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why
