    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In the first scene at Goldilocks's house, when her parents are sitting on the porch and her father is reading the newspaper out loud to her mother, her mother is sewing a needlepoint that says, "My life is a TAPESTRY." Carole King, who is playing Goldilocks's mother, is a successful singer-songwriter whose breakthrough album, released in 1971, was called Tapestry. There is also a song on the album with the same title, but the first line is "My life has been a tapestry."

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Goldilocks: If there's any ghosts living here, I'm not afraid of you! Or maybe it's just invisible people.

      • (Papa Bear has finished building a peculiar-looking ladder.)
        Papa Bear: Well, there we go!
        Mama Bear: What is it?
        Papa Bear: Well, it's a roof climber. Come over here and try it.
        Mama Bear: Me?
        Papa Bear: Yeah!
        Mama Bear: Why don't you try it?
        Papa Bear: 'Cause you're not as heavy.
        Mama Bear: You made it, now you try it.
        Papa Bear: Oh, alright!
        (Papa Bear starts to climb it, but it breaks in two.)
        Papa Bear: Well! I'll have to get back to this later. Right now, I've got more important things to do!

      • (Goldilocks goes into her secret place where her treasures are, and picks up her doll.)
        Goldilocks: Clara, have you been guarding my treasure? What do you mean you fell asleep? Dolls don't fall asleep! Wait a minute, where's my...?
        (She takes out a treasure box, and takes out a small piece of leather.)
        Goldilocks: Here it is, my piece of leather. (to her doll) We have to be very careful. There are highwaymen and robbers around. In fact, they may be close by. Shh!
        (She looks around for a minute and then turns back to her doll.)
        Goldilocks: No, no, they're gone. But that's alright, because I'm here to protect you. What do you mean? Didn't I save you from those pirates yesterday? Well, that's why I have all this treasure, my treasure! But now, I'm on a special mission for the king. I'm kind of a spy. Don't you know what a spy is? A spy is a person who, well, spies all over the place.
        (a sound is heard)
        Goldilocks: Shh! Be quiet. (short pause) I think they're using some sort of secret code. I'd better go out and explore the area.
        (She puts her doll into a special hanger.)
        Goldilocks: You stay here and guard the fort. Okay, bye!
        (She leaves.)
