-It looks awful.
-That's because it's on you, dear.
Prince Phillip: Now, father, you're living in the past. This is the 14th century!
Merryweather: It looks awful.
Flora: That's because it's on you, dear.
Narrator: In a faraway land, long ago, there lived a King and his fair Queen. Many years they had longed for a child, and finally their wish was granted. A daughter was born, and they called her Aurora. Yes, they named her after the dawn, for she filled their lives with sunshine.

And prove that "true love" conquers all!
Maleficent: A forest of thorns shall be his tomb! Borne through the skies on a fog of doom! Now go with the curse, and serve me well! 'Round Stefan's Castle, CAST MY SPELL!
Fauna: Maleficent doesn't know anything about love, or kindness, or the joy of helping others. You know, sometimes I don't think she's really very happy.
Princess Aurora: I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream. I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam. Yet I know it's true, that visions are seldom all they seem… but if I know you, I know what you'll do: you'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream…
