"The Wonderful World of Disney" Cinderella (TV Episode 1997) Poster

Bernadette Peters: Cinderella's Stepmother



  • Lionel : You know, I honestly wish there was something between us.

    Stepmother : Really?

    Lionel : Yes. A continent.

    [walks away] 

  • Stepmother : Beauty knows no pain, girls!

  • Cinderella : Why? Why is this so hard for you to imagine?

    Stepmother : Because you're common, Cinderella. Your mother was common and so are you. Only you can wash your face and put on a clean dress, but underneath, you'll still be common. But a prince would even consider taking you for his bride? Why, it's laughable!

    Cinderella : My father.

    Stepmother : Your father was weak. He spoiled you rotten, he filled your head with silly thoughts and dreams that'll never come true. Never. Now, clean this place up. It's a sty.

  • Lionel : The Prince is Giving A Ball. His royal highness Christopher Rupert son of her majesty Queen Constantina Charlotte Hermantrude Guenivere Mazie.

    Stepmother : Mazie?

    Lionel : Mazie. Marguerite Anne is giving a ball.

  • Stepmother : My girls are going to be the envy of everyone at the ball.

  • Stepmother : I've always been told I've got too big a heart.

    Calliope , Minerva : You've got too big a heart, Mother.

  • Stepmother : Don't cling to the past Cinderella. It's not very attractive.

  • Lionel : Are there any other young women in the house?

    Stepmother : [speaking in high-pitched voice]  How young?

    Lionel : Younger than you.

  • Stepmother : [singing]  Falling in love with love is falling for make-believe/Falling in love with love is playing the fool/Caring too much is such a juvenile fancy/Learning to trust is just for children in school/I fell in love with love one night when the moon was full/I was unwise with eyes unable to see/I fell in love with love with love everlasting/And love fell out with me!

  • Cinderella : But shouldn't a man love you for who you are, in spite of everything?

    Stepmother : How quaint. Tell me, Cinderella, What would you say to capture the prince?

    Cinderella : I don't know. But whatever I'd say, we'd know in an instant we were meant for each other. Then he'd smile, and kiss my hand.

    Minerva : That's so romantic.

    Calliope : Oh, say it again, Cinderella.

    Stepmother : Rubbish! This isn't about love, it's about marriage.

  • Stepmother : NOOOO!

    Lionel : Quiet, woman.
