Quotes / Dude, Not Funny!


Laugh and laugh 'til all the chameleons turn black
Laugh and laugh 'til you're told 'Please don't come back'

Di: Ahhmmm, this is a murder scene.

Elsa: Hans, I need to know why.
Hans: [confused] Why what?
Elsa: [exasperated] Please don't make me say it.
Hans: Oh, you mean why I did what I did last year? I always read stories when I was younger of kingdoms that had been taken over by great powerful forces. I liked to believe I was one of them and one day I would take over a kingdom like the stories I read as a child. I just wasn't good enough. But a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. No kingdom was ever taken by peaceful force, right?
Elsa: [shocked and angered at Hans' response] How dare you...
[Hans stares at her defiantly, hiding his fear of Elsa's response to his joke.]
Elsa: Is this your form a joke, Hans? Because it's sick; like you! I should've ordered for your execution the second you left Arendelle!
Hans: Then why didn't you?
Elsa: Because I have a conscience! [Hans flinches at her response] Those kingdoms you read about may have been taken over by powerful forces, but what the books didn't tell you is that the kingdoms surrendered because they were afraid. And you know what happens to kingdoms run by fear, and fear alone, Hans? They fall apart! The people rebel and the kingdom falls into anarchy. And those kingdoms seldom survive after they've fallen. And you know what kind of kingdom Arendelle would be if you had won Hans? One that was falling to the rebellious people and anarchy. You wouldn't have been a good ruler, Hans; you would've been a dictator that wouldn't even survive his first year on the throne! You would be dead and Arendelle would fall to pieces only to be remembered in the stupid books that you read! Successful kingdoms aren't run by fear, they're run by loving and fair rulers; both of which you're not! You're cruel, you're greedy, and you don't care about anyone but yourself. I was willing to give you a chance because I'm a firm believer in that everyone deserves a second chance; but you just blew yours. After the war is over, I'm sending you back to the Southern Isles for good. And believe me when I say, Westergard, that you will die as a disgraced prince in exile. That I will ensure.

When you laugh about people who feel so very lonely
Their only desire is to die
Well, I'm afraid
It doesn't make me smile
