  • Quotes

    • Prince Tuesday: I like to be in school.
      Harriet: And we like to have you, too, don't we, Daniel and Ana?
      Daniel and Ana: I'll say.
      Ana: That day when Prince Tuesday wasn't here, we were all sad.
      Prince Tuesday: I like it here, better than home.
      (Lady Elaine emerges)
      Lady Elaine: Well, then you'd better come and live with me, Tuesday.
      Prince Tuesday: Auntie Lady Elaine, you scared us.
      Lady Elaine: I just think you'd better come and live with me at the Museum-Go-Round.
      Prince Tuesday: Why?
      Lady Elaine: Well, you know yourself. Things are awfully upset at your place. I mean, if your mom and dad get a divorce, you can come to live--
      Harriet: Now, now, Lady Elaine, how could you say such a thing?
      Lady Elaine: Well, it's the truth, isn't it?
      Harriet: Nobody has said that the King and Queen are getting a divorce, have they?
      Prince Tuesday: If they do, it'll be all my fault.
      Harriet: I think we've talked about this enough. We just have to ask the King and Queen.
      Prince Tuesday: I'm afraid to.
      Harriet: Well, I'm your teacher, dear, so I can help you.
      Prince Tuesday: You mean right now?
      Harriet: Right now.
      Ana: May we go along?
      Harriet: I know you're worried about it, too, dear.
      Daniel: And so am I, Miss Cow.
      Harriet: Well, then we should all go. People shouldn't have to guess about important things.
      Lady Elaine: I'm for that.
      (she leaves)
      Harriet: Now, remember, Lady Elaine. The King and Queen and Prince Tuesday are Prince Tuesday's mother and father.
      Ana: And they always will be, no matter what.
      Prince Tuesday: They will?
      Ana: Sure. If they get a divorce, or if they don't get a divorce, they'll still be your mom and dad. Nothing changes that.
      Prince Tuesday: Oh, I didn't know that.
