Sara Crewe: Please sir, were you with the troops at Mafeking?
Traumatized Young Soldier: Yes, of course I was. That's where I ran away, you know.
Sara Crewe: Did you know my father, Captain Crewe?
Traumatized Young Soldier: [cutting out a paper soldier] Yes, yes of course. That's a fine-looking officer, isn't he? He ought to do well.
Sara Crewe: But where did you see my father last? Where is he now?
Traumatized Young Soldier: Where is who?
Sara Crewe: My father!
Traumatized Young Soldier: Of course one soldier more or less doesn't make any difference, you know. That's why I'm making thousands and thousands of troops for England. See? Good strong fellows who won't be afraid as I was. I was afraid. That's why I ran away, you know.
Sara Crewe: Mr. Bertie, he says he knows my father, but he won't tell.
Hubert 'Bertie' Minchin: He's living in a dream, Sara. He doesn't know what he's saying.More Movie: The Little Princess [1939] Movie: The Little Princess [1939] quotes [07/31/2008 12:07:00]
Hubert 'Bertie' Minchin: Today, my good woman, the British army is behind me.
Amanda Minchin of Minchin Seminary for Girls: Hubert, that uniform! You're not going to war?
Hubert 'Bertie' Minchin: Quite. To the very cannon's mouth, if need be!
Amanda Minchin of Minchin Seminary for Girls: But why?
Hubert 'Bertie' Minchin: Because, old girl, I'm fed to the teeth with your bullying. And your treatment of Rose and little Sara is the last straw! I prefer the less painful horrors of the battlefield.
Amanda Minchin of Minchin Seminary for Girls: Are you daring to criticize me?
Hubert 'Bertie' Minchin: Astonishing, isn't it? But it proves that I'm competent to lead my men into the very jaws of death!More Movie: The Little Princess [1939] Movie: The Little Princess [1939] quotes [07/31/2008 12:07:00]
Sara Crewe: Here she is, on the bookshelves.
Ram Dass, Lord Wickham's Indian Servant: Bookshelves.
Sara Crewe: Oh... I pretend they're bookshelves filled with beautiful sets of books.
Ram Dass, Lord Wickham's Indian Servant: Then I'd better remove her before she ruins your set of Dickens. This is your room, Miss?
Sara Crewe: Yes, it's so little and so high above everything that it's like a nest in a tree. I can lie on my soft sofa and look up at the sky through that little hole in the roof.
Ram Dass, Lord Wickham's Indian Servant: Sofa?
Sara Crewe: Well... it looks more like a sofa when it's made up, and I imagine it has warm blankets and lovely cushions to curl up on.
Ram Dass, Lord Wickham's Indian Servant: But there is a fire at night, of course?
Sara Crewe: Well... that is the hardest of all to imagine, especially at night, but it's lovely when I can.
Becky, Servant at Minchin Seminary: The cook wants you, and she's in an awful mood!
Sara Crewe: Excuse me, Ram Dass, I've got to go to the butcher's, and I'll get my ears boxed if I don't hurry!More Movie: The Little Princess [1939] Movie: The Little Princess [1939] quotes [07/31/2008 12:07:00]
Mr. Barrows: Captain Crewe is dead. He was so reported in the list this morning. Moreover, he died bankrupt. His property and his mines were confiscated by the enemy.
Amanda Minchin of Minchin Seminary for Girls: You mean to tell me that the child is penniless, and she's left on my hands with nothing?
Mr. Barrows: She's certainly left penniless, and she's certainly left on your hands. She hasn't a relative in the world that we know of.
Amanda Minchin of Minchin Seminary for Girls: I'll throw her out on the streets.
Mr. Barrows: Do you think that wise, Miss Minchin? The reputation of your school, you know. That may not sound well to the parents of some of your other pupils. The child could be made to serve as your employee until her indebtedness is paid off.More Movie: The Little Princess [1939] Movie: The Little Princess [1939] quotes [07/31/2008 12:07:00]
Sara Crewe: I thought you said you didn't have any more rooms.

Sara Crewe: Why does that make more rooms, Daddy?More Movie: The Little Princess [1939] Movie: The Little Princess [1939] quotes [07/31/2008 12:07:00]
