Return to Halloweentown (2006 TV Movie)
Ethan Dalloway: Hey.
Marnie Piper: Hey.
Aneesa: You know, I'd really hoped you two had moved past monosyllables.
Ethan Dalloway: What you did, giving up that power...
Marnie Piper: You probably think it was stupid.
Ethan Dalloway: Stupid? I think it is amazing. Power isn't important to me.
Marnie Piper: What kind of warlock doesn't like power?
Ethan Dalloway: The mortal kind. When my dad tried to steal your family's magic, the ouncil took his powers and i renounced mine. I can't do magic, I can't fly on a broom or any other cleaning instrument. Those flowers i gave you, that was just a trick I learned from some book. I'm a mortal now, Marnie.
Ethan Dalloway: Hey, Scarlett. I, uh, think you owe my boy, Dylan, an apology.
Scarlett Sinister: Excuse me? If anything he should apologize to me. I wasted a whole month of college on that toad. Ooh. Join me in a little Sinister magic, sister?
[they try to cast a spell and there is weak zapping]
Scarlett Sinister: My magic! It's gone!
Dylan Piper: Uh, yours, your father's, your whole family's, actually.
Saphire Sinister: I don't get it.
Sage Sinister: We're mortal, dumbbell.
Scarlett Sinister: We might as well be... ugly!
Marnie Piper: So, what's up this "No Magic" rule?
Ethan Dalloway: Uh, that's new. Students used to be required to use their magic in classes.
Aneesa: But that was when Witch University was for witches only, no monsters, or mummies, or genies allowed.
Marnie Piper: When did it change?
Aneesa: Last year.
Marnie Piper: Who's the dork that did that?
Marnie Piper: Me?
Ethan Dalloway: When you opened the portal between the worlds permanently a lot of kids from Halloweentown went to college in the Mortal World.
Marnie Piper: Why would they do that?
Ethan Dalloway: Why would anyone want to go off to college? Get away from Mom and Dad. Far away from them.
Marnie Piper: A world away.
Aneesa: Witch University needed more students, so they opened enrollment to non-witches. That's how I got in, because of you!
Marnie Piper: Wow, I mean, that's great. But why no magic?
Ethan Dalloway: To level the academic playing field.
Aneesa: It wouldn't be fair if witches could use magic to do coursework and the rest of us had to do it the old-fashioned way.
Splendora Cromwell: Do you speak of this?
Marnie Piper: That's the Gift?
Splendora Cromwell: This amulet was handed down to me by my mother, and her mother before her, and so back to the Beginning Time. The Cromwell who wears this 'tis indeed gifted with a very special old power, power I would not wish upon anyone.
Marnie Piper: Okay, I totally understand. But, um, before you do that could I just borrow it real quick?
Marnie Piper: Why not?
Marnie Piper: Man, you're selfish!
Prof. Persimmon Periwinkle: It's Agent Periwinkle, of the Halloweentown Anti-Dominion League!
Silas Sinister: Preposterous!
Prof. Persimmon Periwinkle: What's preposterous is how long I've been undercover. Ten centuries!
Ethan Dalloway: That's rule Number 2. Do all the magic you want, just don't get caught.
Marnie Piper: Am I seeing what I think I'm seeing?
Ethan Dalloway: Yes, Marnie. You've spotted the elusive guy doing his own laundry.
Marnie Piper: A rare creature, indeed.
Ethan Dalloway: I have no idea what you just said, but, uh, you looked really cute saying it.
Marnie Piper: Why don't you just use your magic?
Ethan Dalloway: What magic would that be?
Marnie Piper: You know.
Ethan Dalloway: We're not talking about laundry anymore, are we?
Aneesa: [asking on why Ethan was rubbing his shoulder] Are you okay?
Ethan Dalloway: Ya I'm Fine... I just got swept off my feet last night
Ethan Dalloway: We're not talking about laundry anymore, are we?
Marnie Piper: Mom! I need you!
Gwen Cromwell Piper: [appears] I thought you'd never call.
Marnie Piper: I really messed up.
Gwen Cromwell Piper: Well, we mess up sometimes. That's how you learn. Just this wek I blew a big sale by talking to a birdbath.
Gwen Cromwell Piper: No one's seen the Sinister girls or Dylan.
Marnie Piper: Have you checked the pound?
Gwen Cromwell Piper: That is not funny.
Dylan Piper: [after being turned from a dog back into a human] Opposible thumbs. Thank you.
Gwen Cromwell Piper: Are you ok, honey?
Dylan Piper: I'm fine mom, but I think I'll just sit. And stay.
Gwen Cromwell Piper: Ok. Just don't roll over. Not yet.
Marnie Piper: They could cast another spell on Dylan, even as we speak!
Ethan Dalloway: And what? Make him do more math? He loves math!
Splendora Cromwell: You must be of my family. I put an enchantment of protection on this room and everything that is in it. Only a Cromwell would be allowed inside.
Marnie Piper: I am a Cromwell.
Splendora Cromwell: Indeed? How is it we have never met?
Marnie Piper: I'm from the future.
Splendora Cromwell: Oh, indeed? That would explain the clothes.
Marnie Piper: Well, we can't all have a royal dresser!
Splendora Cromwell: Do you understand what this great power is?
Marnie Piper: No, not exactly.
Splendora Cromwell: Mark this- in this amulet is the power of absolute control. With it, I can will anyone to do anything. I can control hearts and minds.
Splendora: 'Tis truly sad when a few people force their views on everyone else.
Splendora: Those seven witches call themselves The Dominion for a reason. They want to use me and my Gift.
Marnie Piper: Dylan! Where'd you find him?
Silas Sinister: We had help.
Ethan Dalloway: Marnie, I'm sorry.
Marnie Piper: You're working with them?
Ethan Dalloway: No!
Silas Sinister: Oh, yes he was! He just didn't know it. Ethan found your brother, and we found Ethan.
Prof. Persimmon Periwinkle: You are all hereby stripped of your magic powers and are under arrest for treason!
Marnie Piper: My resident advisor's a genie?
Aneesa: The first to be accepted to Witch University. My parents are very proud.
Dr. Lwaxana Goodwyn: When this school was first established, and enchantment was placed on the campus. All spells cast at Witch University become permanent at midnight on Halloween.
Marnie Piper: You mean 'permanent, permanent'?
Dr. Lwaxana Goodwyn: Indeed. And for many years it was a fine deterrent. Until we had a small mishap.
Marnie Piper: How small?
Dr. Lwaxana Goodwyn: A simple, magical housecleaning lesson went horribly wrong. Half the freshman class had to be sent home as teacups.
Ethan Dalloway: So, uh, you wanna just zap this stuff clean and go get a cup of coffee with me?
Ethan Dalloway: Chancellor really needs to get a cell phone.
Marnie Piper: [Marnie goes to hung Dylan] Just don't lick my face.
Gwen Cromwell Piper: Ethan Dalloway?
Marnie Piper: Yep. He's mortal now.
Gwen Cromwell Piper: I knew there was something I liked about that kid.
Silas Sinister: And now a reading of the prophecy; "And it shall come to pass, at the close of the first millennium, at the rise of the Halloween Moon, a Cromwell of Great Power will embrace The Gift." Marine Piper is the Cromwell of the prophecy, the one we have waited for.
Splendora: This power can tempt even a good witch to dark deeds.
Silas Sinister: Queen Cromwell, grace us with a display of your power. Use your Gift!
Marnie Piper: I can't believe I'm really going to Witch University. I wonder how I'll be transported there. Maybe they'll send a train of black carriages driven by headless horsemen. Or, ooh, maybe they'll send a flotilla of Spanish galleons to carry us across a misty lake.
[walks through portal]
Dylan Piper: Or maybe they'll just send Benny.
Marnie Piper: I'm cleaning high school out of my closet. Well, actually, it's cleaning itself out. I'm just helping it make decisions.
Marnie Piper: Man this is the perfect time to go to Witch University!
Marnie Piper: I can't believe my mother sent my brother to baby-sit me.
Aneesa: Wow, that's quite a vocabulary you guys got there. I can hardly keep up!
Marnie Piper: I've got History of the World, Magic and Mortal, um, Magic Themes Using Classic Literature. You know, pretty normal college classes.
Marnie Piper: Befuddled.
Dylan Piper: I vote for flummoxed.
Marnie Piper: Flummoxed it is. Prof. Periwinkle is most definitely flummoxed.
Dylan Piper: She's a dead ringer for Grandma.
Prof. Persimmon Periwinkle: Oh fiddlesticks.
[stops books from falling]
Prof. Persimmon Periwinkle: That'll be our little secret.
Dr. Grogg: How do I open it?
Marnie Piper: Use a key?
Dr. Grogg: Where is it?
Marnie Piper: Don't look at me!
Young Troll: Sorry, Marnie, but it didn't look good.
Aneesa: Yeah, the whole earth-shaking, beam of light thing.
Young Troll: The box landed right in your hand.
Dr. Lwaxana Goodwyn: Marnie! You're young, you're a witch! Have a little fun!
