Lucille La Verne Quotes:

Queen: Dip the apple in the brew. Let the Sleeping Death seep through.
[the poison on the apple forms a skull]
Queen: Look! On the skin! The symbol of what lies within. Now, turn red, to tempt Snow White, to make her hunger for a bite.
Queen: [offering the apple to the raven] Have a bite?
[the raven flaps wildly, trying to escape]
Queen: [laughing] It's not for you, it's for Snow White. When she breaks the tender peel, to taste the apple in my hand, her breath will still, her blood congeal, then I'll be fairest in the land!


Queen: But wait! There may be an antidote. Nothing must be overlooked.
[Reads]
Queen: Ah, here it is! "The Victim of the Sleeping Death can be revived only by Love's First Kiss." "Love's First Kiss." Bah! No fear of that. The dwarves will think she's dead. She'll be buried alive!
[Cackles]
Queen: Buried alive!


Queen: All alone, my pet?
Snow White: Why... why, yes, I am, but...
Queen: The... the little men are not here?
Snow White: No, they're not, but...
Queen: [Sniffing] Mm-hmm. Baking pies?
Snow White: Yes, gooseberry pie.
Queen: It's apple pies that make the menfolks' mouths water. Pies made from apples like these.
Snow White: Oh, they do look delicious.
Queen: Yes, but wait 'til you taste one, dearie. Like to try one? Go on. Go on, have a bite.
