- Pardon me?
- (singing) I got a day named after me, February 2.
That's the day that I decide what the weather's gonna do.
- Think of a snowstorm as a Kingdom of the Winter Clouds. And the king of all winter, is Father Winter himself.
- (singing) The happiness of being me is not what it's cracked up to be. It's lonely being one of a kind.
- Greetings, Snow Gypsies! Salutations, Sleet Sisters! Hail, Hail Fellow!
- (after defeating Kubla Kraus) I guess this counts as a house. Uh-oh! (Klangstumper enters, then lets Jack pet him) I guess I have a horse, too! Look! Gold! Enough for 100 bags! Now there's just one more thing I need.
- Oh... time. Give me time, Jack. A century or two to think it over.
- Very well. You have until the first stroke of spring. If, in that time you have obtained the necessary items needed to make a life: a house to warm you, a horse to bear you, a bag of gold to sustain you, and a wife, to make it all worth the while, then you will be truly human, and may remain so, with my blessing, forever.
- (after Jack asks how he knows if Spring is coming early) I look to a little groundhog.
- Elisa: You certainly are clumsy on ice.
- Jack Frost: Me? Clumsy on ice?!?
- Dummy: Hello.
- Elisa: Well, hello, little fella!
- Dummy: And how is the New Year's bride?
- Elisa: I'm not a New Year's bride, silly!
- Kubla Kraus: That's what YOU think!!!!
- Kubla Krause: Blast you! [Jack throws Dummy back to him, to Dummy] Who you like best? Me or Frost?
- Dummy: Oh, you, Kubla! He's got cold fingers. Let's get him!
- Jack, Snip, Holly, Elisa, Mama, Papa: It's just what I always wanted, it's perfectly right.
It's just what I always wanted, a Christmas delight!
