[she goes to the PALACE because she wants a HOUSE, as per her AGREEMENT with the KING]
King: I no promise you no house! And get your head lower than mine!
Deborah Kerr: Fine! Then I am leaving!
[a BUNCH of SIAMESE CHILDREN march up to her and it is TOO ADORABLE for her to RESIST]

Rita Moreno: My lover and I are both from Burma. Seriously. I am not at all Puerto Rican. I was given as a present to the king, and I don't like it here.
King: Why does she not like it here??? "Is a puzzlement"!!
[the children LEARN things, but refuse to believe in SNOW]
Deborah Kerr: Your children are adorable, but frustrating! They take after their father.

Rita Moreno: Yes, I know. Please stop singing so we can make out.
