Drosselmeyer: [from teaser trailer] It's Christmas Eve. A time of mystery, expectations, who knows what might happen?
Drosselmeyer: [to Clara; from trailer] Your mother was the cleverest inventor I ever knew.
Mr. Stahlbaum: [from trailer] This time has been difficult for all of us, but when Christmas comes, we must do our best to enjoy it.
Philip: [sees Clara looking at the bridge to the Fourth Realm] Halt!
[points his sword at her]
Philip: Who goes there?
Clara: [startled] It's just me!
Philip: [misunderstands] State your purpose, Justme.
Clara: No, my name's Clara. And I must cross this bridge.
Philip: Impossible. Nobody crosses the bridge to the Fourth Realm without a direct order from the regents.
Clara: [confused] Fourth Realm? Where am I?
Philip: [puts away his sword] You're in the Christmas Tree Forest. But THAT is the Fourth Realm, which is currently at war with the other three realms.
Clara: [alarmed] WAR?
Philip: That is correct, Miss Clara Justme.
Clara: [frustrated] No, my name isn't 'Clara Justme'. It's Stahlbaum. Clara Stahlbaum.
Philip: [surprised] Stahlbaum? Are you a relation to Marie Stahlbaum?
Clara: [nods] She's my mother.
Philip: [kneels] Forgive me, Your Majesty! I didn't recognize you, Princess Clara.
Clara: [surprised and amused] Princess?
Philip: [gets back up] Captain Philip Hoffman. At your service, Your Majesty.
Mother Ginger: [from trailer] I've been expecting you.
Drosselmeyer: [to his party guests] Ladies and gentlemen, my favorite part of Christmas. My favorite part of this evening. I present to you: your gifts!
Shiver: [shows Clara Marie's old throne room] This is your mother's throne, Your Grace.
Sugar Plum: Have you come to save us, Clara?
[the regents look disappointed]
Clara: I'm sorry. I didn't even now this place existed before today. You see, I was looking for a Christmas present from my godfather.
Hawthorne: [delighted] Oh, I love Christmas!
[to Sugar Plum and Shiver; lost]
Hawthorne: What's Christmas?
Clara: Then I ran into this homeless mouse.
Shiver: [concerned] Mouse?
Clara: And that's when I met the captain.
Philip: [enters the throne room] We barely escaped Mother Ginger. And the Mouse King.
Sugar Plum: [gasps] You met Mother Ginger? Oh my dear Clara, you're lucky to be alive!
Hawthorne: You must promise never to go back to the Land of Amusements, Clara.
Sugar Plum: [frustrated] Hawthorne!
Shiver: [also frustrated] Its title has been restricted.
Hawthorne: Oh, of course. I meant the Fourth Realm.
[to Sugar Plum and Shiver]
Hawthorne: Apologies. I'm just so upset.
Hawthorne: Forget I ever mentioned the Land of Amusements.
[Sugar Plum and Shiver silence him]
Sugar Plum: [to Clara] The ballet tells the story of the Four Realms. How your mother discovered our world.
Shiver: [to Clara, as she's attempting to escape the tower] My dear, that doesn't look very secure.
Hawthorne: [worried] You can't!
Hawthorne: It's not gonna work.
Clara: It's just the laws of physics.
Philip: Do those laws ALWAYS work?
[under her breath]
Clara: As far as I know.
