Follow your heart and nothing is impossible.
- Thumbelina's Mother: And here, the fairy prince and princess are having a wedding.
- Thumbelina: And they live...happily ever after!
- Thumbelina's Mother: Usually, my dear.
- Thumbelina: [crawls by the picture of the prince] I...suppose it works best if two people are about...the same size.
- Thumbelina's Mother: [unsure] Yes, of course.
- Thumbelina: Well...well, that's not fair. I...I must be the only little person in the world. I wish I were big.
- Thumbelina's Mother: Oh, no, Thumbelina. No. Don't ever wish to be anything but what you are.
- Thumbelina: [not knowing that Cornelius is the prince] Tell me about the fairy court. Is there a prince?
- Prince Cornelius: Yes.
- Thumbelina: He must be terribly handsome.
- Prince Cornelius: Oh, he is.
- Thumbelina: Strong and brave.
- Prince Cornelius: None like him.
- Thumbelina: I'd love to meet the prince.
- Prince Cornelius: Oh, I'll tell him.
- Thumbelina: I wish I had wings.
- Prince Cornelius: Maybe someday you will.
- Thumbelina: Well, I must get off this lily pad, but...that's impossible.
- Jacquimo: [laughs] Nothing is impossible!
- Thumbelina: Let's be practical. This isn't the Vale of the Fairies, and Cornelius is never coming back!
- Prince Cornelius: [comes up behind her, singing] And I'll never let you fall!
- Thumbelina: [seeing him alive] You! It's you! Cornelius, you're alive!
