[Scene 5, The Vanity with the Magic Mirror --
N: Narrator, Q2/VW: 2nd Queen/Vain Woman,
SW: Snow White, K: King, MM: Magic Mirror]
N: Now, at first, the very vain woman was not a bad mother.
Q2/VW: Snow White, you are a beautiful child.
I almost wish you were mine.
Let's have some breakfast.
SW: Gurgle. Coo.
N: But she was very insecure.
So she often asked her new husband for encouragement.
Q2/VW: My king, am I beautiful?
K: Of course you are.
How is Snow White?
Q2/VW: She is doing fine.
She is a very beautiful child.
Just like her mother.
Q2/VW: Do you miss her mother very much?
K: I'm afraid I do.
You are wonderful to take care of Snow White for us.
N: Sometimes, when she was alone,
she asked her magic mirror for encouragement.
Q2/VW: Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Who is the most beautiful woman in the world?
MM: Isn't that supposed to be,
Who is fairest of them all?Q2/VW: Yes, but we have copyright laws in this country.
So, am I the most beautiful woman in the world?
MM: Yes, my mistress, you are.
Q2/VW: When you say, "my mistress", I don't trust you.
MM: I am not lying.
Q2/VW: Thank you.
MM: But you shouldn't worry.
There are more important things than beauty.
Q2/VW: Like what?
MM: Like love.
Q2/VW: But you have to be beautiful to be loved!
MM: No, you don't.
Q2/VW: I don't believe you.
MM: I wish you would, because it's true.
Q2/VW: Oh, Snow White,
you need your diaper changed, don't you?
Here we go, a clean diaper.
Now, now, we'll have it changed in a flash.
All nice and dry.
MM: Do you see what I mean?
Q2/VW: Babies aren't very demanding.
MM: I think your willingness to change the diaper
is more important right now than beauty.
