Connections with previous events




Sofia: Good morning, Sir Gilliam.
Sir Gilliam: Oh. Hello, princess. The bleachers are right over there.
Sofia: I didn't come to watch, Sir Gilliam. I came to try out for the team.
Sir Gilliam: What?!

James: What will the other princes say?
Amber: They'll be too busy laughing to say anything.

Sofia: It gives me the power to talk to animals.
Minimus: Well, then, let me give you a piece of advice. If you want to win, you'll pick another horse. You see, I have short legs, small wings, I don't fly fast, I worry about everything. (shudders) Oh...
'Sofia: (chuckles) I think you're perfect, just the way you are.

Princess Hildegard: Amber, is that your sister up there?
Amber: Oh. I can't believe she's really doing it.

Sofia: I can't even make it to the finish line, and I only have one more day until the race. Amber said I should quit. I don't know what to do.
Robin: My mother had a saying. The early bird gets the worm.
Mia: What does Sofia need a worm for?
Clover: She doesn't, Mia. Hey, what Robin's trying to say is, get an early start tomorrow.

Prince Hugo: You should go back to where you belong, with the other princesses.

Amber: You were great, Sofia. I was wrong. Flying derby is a princess thing.
