    • Witch:: I'm gonna find that man (walks up to Macaw Pierrot) and when I do, i'm gonna...
      Pierrot:: Come at Night, My Prince!
      Witch:: (in shock) WHAT DID YOU SAY!?
      Pierrot:: Come at Night, My Prince!!
      Rapunzel:: (horrified) Pierrot....
      Witch:: (turns enraged to Rapunzel)
      All Right!! All right, where is he!? Where are you hiding him!!?
      Rapunzel:: (Stands on bed)
      But mother there's no one here!
      Witch::
      Don't you lie to me, you know, you can't lie to me!! (overturns blankets on bed and finds the Silk ladder, Rapunzel was weaving, she holds it up in confusion) WHAT'S THIS!!?
      Pierrot:: I think, I Love You! Rapunzel, will you Marry Me?
      Witch:: (her worst fears confirmed)
      Ahhhhhhh!!!

    • (The Witch has her imps wall up the door to the Tower, sealing Rapunzel inside for her "Own Good")
      Rapunzel:: Let me out right now!
      Witch:: You'll be safe up there, Rapunzel! No man will be able to touch you!
      Rapunzel:: But I don't want a man, I want to be free!
      Witch:: (smiles patronizing) Oh, Sweetie, you're still young, you don't fully understand the world.
      Rapunzel:: How will I ever learn about the world, if you keep me locked up in this Tower!?
      Witch:: (gesturing to herself) I will teach you! I will teach you everything, you will ever need to know! (Casually as if it's no big deal) After all I have been around, a very, long time. Hundreds of years before, you were, ever, even born. And I learned one thing in all those years, Rapunzel.
      (Looking at the Imps, she places her hand to the side of her face, and stage whispers to Rapunzel)
      Witch:: You can't trust men! (shakes head) They'll lie to you, they'll steal what's most precious to you...
      (Rapunzel looks confused, imitates her mother's gesture and tone of voice)
      Rapunzel:: But I don't even know any men.
      Witch:: Exactly! And that's just how we're gonna keep it.

    • Prince: Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!
