Gerda: “I don’t skate anymore.”
Kai: “Why not?”
Gerda: “I don’t like winter.”

In a remote, northern hotel.

Kai: “Why is it that Gerda hates winter so much?”
Grandmother: “It took her mother’s life. And her father’s joy. All in one night.”

Kai to Gerda: “There you are: winter’s finished.”

Two strangers will fall in love.

Grandmother: “Haven’t you seen the way he and Gerda look at each other? He’s a nice young man.”

Romance warms the air . . .

But an ice terror awaits.

Gerda: “Who are the people that have disappeared?”
Grandmother: “Young men abducted.”
Gerda: “By whom?”
Grandmother: “The Snow Queen.”

Uncle: “He’s a foolish, selfish boy.”
Gerda: “You don’t know him at all.”

She will seduce you.

Snow Queen: “How old are you?”
Kai: “Eighteen.”
Snow Queen: “You’ve got lovely eyes.”

Her kiss will enthrall you . . .

And she will take you to a place

Snow Queen: “How fast would you like to go?”
Kai: “As fast as you can go!”

Beyond our world.

Kai: “Where am I?”
Snow Queen: “You’re home.”
Kai: “I can’t stay here.”
Snow Queen: “Well, then I suppose you’ll die.”

Now, the quest for true love.

Gerda: “I must find him.”
Grandmother: “Why is he worth it?”
Gerda: “Because he made me want to live again.”

Will take you to a world beyond your imagination.

Gerda: “Do you know the way to Lapland?”
Reindeer: “Like the back of my anthers.”

Old Lady: “If she doesn’t fall in love, summer will come to an end.”

Little Robber Girl: “There’s heat in this broach. That’s what she fears, you know.”
Gerda: “What who fears?”
Little Robber Girl: “The one who’s got your man.”
