Barbie as The Princess and the Pauper (2004 Video)
Singing Princess Anneliese: All my life I've always wanted/To have one day just for me/Nothing to do and for once nowhere I need to be/With no lessons, lords, or lunches/Or to-do list in the was/No one to say when to eat or read or leave or stay/That would be the day
Singing Erika: All my life I've always wanted/To have one day for myself/Not waking up with a pile of work on every shelf/With no hems in need of pressing/And no sleeves in disarray/No wedding gown with a thousand stitches to crochet /And no debt to pay
Singing Princess Anneliese: What would it be like to be
Singing Princess Anneliese: What would it be like to be
Singing Erika: Free
Singing Princess Anneliese: Free/Free to try crazy thing
Singing Erika: Free from endless IOU's
Singing Princess Anneliese: Free to fly
Singing Erika: Free to sing
Singing Princess Anneliese: And marry whom I choose/You would think that I'm so lucky/That I have so many things/I'm realizing that every present comes with strings
Singing Princess Anneliese: Though I know I have so little/My determination's strong/People will gather around the world to hear my song
Midas: Can I come along?
Singing Princess Anneliese: NOw I fear I'll never be...
Singing Erika: Soon I'll forever be...
Singing Princess Anneliese: I'll remain forever royal.
Singing Erika: I will pay my parents' debt.
Singing Princess Anneliese: But I'll never stop believing.
Singing Erika: She can never stop my schemes.
Madam Carp: What do you think I'm running here? A cabaret?
Erika: [mumbilng] I would've said a debtor's prison.
Madam Carp: Keep laughing. You'll be working for me for another 37 years.
Erika: But I've already paid off more than half.
Madam Carp: But there's the interest, isn't there? Your parents should've thought of that before they borrowed so much.
Erika: They did it to feed me.
Madam Carp: [casually] Their mistake.
Singing Dominic: [singing to Erika] I'll be yours/Together we shall always be as one/If you love me for me.
Singing Erika: [singing for Dominick] Once a lass met a lad/"You're a gentle one said she/In my heart, I'd be glad, if you loved me for me/You say your love is true/And I hope that it will be.
Singing Dominic: [continuing the song with her] I'd be sure, if I knew, that you loved me for me.
Singing Erika: [singing to Wolfie] There is not one hair of you that I would rearrange/I love you the way you are and that will never change! That will never change...
Preminger: [Looking at himself in a mirror] Is that really me, in there? Looking at me, out here? Lucky me.
Nick: Hey! I happen to know you got a five of hearts.
Nack: What do you mean you know?
Nick: I saw it.
Nack: You mean you cheated!
Nick: Yeah! Uh, I mean, no.
Princess Anneliese: Julian! Perfect timing. I classified this as iron pyrite. Pretty, but not considered valuable. Commonly known as fool's gold.
Julian: Well done, Your Highness.
Princess Anneliese: Your Highness? Why the sudden formality? It's just me.
Preminger: [to Julian] Why don't you stick to your books, schoolboy? Wouldn't that be fun?
Madam Carp: Here again?
Erika: Madame Carp!
[Madame Carp takes the tin can and steals the money]
Erika: Wait! I earned that.
Madam Carp: And you owe me. Did you really think you could make a living as a singer? Get back to work, girl, or there'll be trouble.
Princess Anneliese: I command you to unlock this door!
Nick: Yes, Your Highness.
Nack: [mocking Nick] Yes, Your Highness. We're in charge, you bonehead.
Nick: Right. I knew that.
Serafina: Well, that certainly wasn't called for!
Herve: Oh, are you okay?
Serafina: No, I am not okay. My mistress is inside with two hooligans and I've got dirt, dirt on my bum! Who are you?
Serafina: Nice to meet you, Herve. I'm Serafina.
Director: Take 37. And action.
[Stand-in cat flies through the wood that breaks and lands inside the cottage]
Director: Okay. Let's bring in Serafina.
Serafina: Uh, can you get my agent on the phone?
Julian: No nagging, bragging, sweating, fretting, slipping, tripping, slurping, burping, twittering or frittering allowed. Stay present, stay pleasant, stay proud.
Queen Genevieve: I'm so sorry, my darling, but as you know, it is vital you marry King Dominick. It is the only way to take care of our people.
Princess Anneliese: I know. It's my duty.
Queen Genevieve: Oh, and look, another engagement gift.
Barbie: Long ago and far away in a village high on a mountaintop, something amazing was occurring. At the very same moment, two identical baby girls were born. One, a baby princess. The King and Queen were overjoyed. Princess Anneliese would have only the finest. The second baby girl was named Erika. Her parents loved her every bit as much as the King and Queen loved the Princess, but they worried. They were so poor. How would they be able to care for their little daughter? Many years passed. The Princess learned her royal duties, while Erika worked long and hard as a seamstress for the spiteful Madame Carp. With lives so different, it wasn't surprising that the Princess and the Pauper never met. But fate decreed they would.
Barbie: It all started at a royal mine, when the miners informed the Queen the gold had run out. The widowed Queen was shocked. The kingdom was now bankrupt. How was she going to take care of her people? If only she could call on her trusted advisor, Preminger. But he was away on a long journey. She needed to do something quickly to save the kingdom. But what? And then it struck her. Nearby lived a rich, young king who was seeking a wife.
Director: Stand-in cat is ready. Serafina stunt test, take 1. And action
[Stand-in cat flies way up high past the roof top]
Serafina: Oh, dear.
Director: Quiet on the set, please. And action.
[stand-in cat flies up but only lands at the outside wall of the cottage]
Serafina: Uh... Are you quite sure this is a good idea?
Preminger: Looking for something, Julian?
Julian: How can you be king?
[Nick and Nack stuff Julian in a bag]
Preminger: You're the tutor. You're supposed to have all the answers.
Preminger: Is that something on her desk, Your Majesty?
[hands letter to Queen Genevieve]
Queen Genevieve: Oh, a letter for me?
[reads letter. Shocked]
Queen Genevieve: It says she's run away, so she won't have to marry King Dominick! Oh!
Preminger: Well, this is dreadful.
Queen Genevieve: We have to find her. She could be hurt.
Preminger: Well, I'll send out search parties at once, Your Majesty. I'm sure she couldn't have gotten far.
Queen Genevieve: Preminger, what would I do without you?
