He's coming.

I love you.

Jessie!

Oh, I missed you.

More!

Again!

What will you do with me now, sir?

Find a priest, take our vows

and live happily ever after.

But what of your mother?

You know how she feels

about mixed marriages.

By sunset

we will be man and wife,

and the Queen, bless her soul,

will be out of my life.

- He's coming! He's coming!

Let's go.

Everybody!

Stand back. Make way.

I am the Prince.

We are here

on the Queen's business.

We have orders

to arrest your peasant girl.

Over my dead body.

Do not draw that sword

unless you intend to use it, sir.

I think he means it.

Sir, a word in private.

We're mere soldiers

working on the Queen's business.

Can't you try to see things...

No, don't!

Unhand her!

- My prince!

- Jessie!

- I love you!

- I love you!

- My prince!

- Jessie!

William!

Queen, the queen!

Stop picking on those soldiers

and get away from that peasant girl.

Hit the ground, you scummy toads.

I love her, Mother.

I will always love her.

Be still, my son.

She's only after the royal jewels.

You know she's not our type.

Now, come home with me

and we'll discuss it over some mutton.

Give her the gift.

- Well, my little sweetie pie.

- I don't want your gold or your jewels.

Get out of the way.

No? Then how about gold and jewels?

Jessie, let us make this

a symbol of our eternal love.

Then I will wear it forever.

You have cursed my gift!

It's not me, darling.

It's the work of Spretzle.

Brilliant. Simply brilliant.

Frozen forever.

That little curse was nothing,

my queenie. Nothing, no, nothing.

Mother, I have never

asked you for anything.

But I beseech you,

take my life and spare hers.

All right,

since you're such a romantic.

A thousand years,

or until she meets a true love

from another land.

Only then can the cursed necklace

be removed.

No!

Is it a deal?

Yes, but you have cursed your kingdom

for 1,000 years.

And that is the legend

of Hauptmann-Koenig's

enchanted peasant girl.

Of course, nobody

really believes the legend.

Now, if you'll step this way,

I'll show you our famous collection

of umbrellas through history.

Is it true

the statue's going on tour?

Yes.

"Nobody really believes

the legend"?

My great, great,

great, great, great,

great, great, great...

Do you mind? Thank you.

Great, great grandfather

was never wrong:

And very soon, my darling,

you will be alive and belong to his

great, great, great, great,

great, great, great,

great grandson.

That's me.

See you, Mom.

Jason, your breakfast.

You have to eat

before you start a new job.

Thanks, Mom.

- Did I keep you up last night?

- You work too hard.

Well, all right.

So, marry a rich girl, and I'll retire.

- So, find me a rich girl.

- All right. I will. So, go.

Don't be late.

I'll be waiting up for you.

Mrs. Williamson!

Mrs. Williamson!

- What happened?

- I'm married!

- Oh, I don't believe it.

- Thank you!

- Thank you!

- Well, thank you.

He's the most beautiful man

I have ever met.

Oh, wonderful.

Come in. You'll tell me.

- Is he rich?

- Yes.

- Does he have a Gold Card?

- Yes, he does.

- Does he have car?

Does he have a condo?

- Yes.

Maybe I'm crazy

but I'm no fool

I know where I stand

All of your reasons

and all your rules

Don't stop me again

Because a lie's a lie

and a fact's a fact

You can try

but you can't change that

I've got something

to make you see

And that something is me

You better wake up

Because my time is coming

And I'm running all the way

Wake up!

My engine's humming

Running down the road to paradise

Wake up!

No time for sleeping

Going to drive all night

Wake up!

And start believing

Racing through the darkness

to the light

Make me an offer

I can't refuse

Near my back to the wall

Fold me a bed

with those concrete shoes

It don't matter at all

Through the fire, on the ice

I've been knocked down

once or twice

I've got something

left to prove

Going to prove it to you

You better wake up

'Cause my time is coming

And I'm running all the way

Wake up!

And start believing

Racing through

Racing through the night

Wake up!

- Oh, thank you.

- Hold it.

Start believing

Ooh, you better wake up

Wake up!

I like to get candids.

Come with me.

Yeah, it might just be

your ID badge,

but I try to capture

the essence of every Prince employee.

Here, sign this.

I'm Andy Ackerman, Security.

I don't miss much.

Hi, I'm Jason Williamson.

I guess you're wondering what

I'm doing with a steering wheel, right?

Steering wheel?

Oh, that.

No, I assumed it was a key chain.

No. No, I just don't want

my jeep stolen.

You don't have to worry about that

with me around here.

- Isn't that hair spray?

- Yeah. Well, I sort of

flunked Mace class.

Oh.

You blind one instructor,

- they make you wait six months.

- Yeah.

Oh, here. Don't lose this baby.

You can charge anything in the store

with it. 10 percent off, too.

- Come with me. I'll help you check in.

- Thanks.

I'm supposed to report

to a Mr. James.

- Do you know...

- Oh, boy. Yeah.

Has the shipment arrived

from Hauptmann-Koenig yet?

- It's coming in this afternoon.

- Not good enough.

- I want it this morning.

- That's impossible, sir.

Nothing is impossible.

"Impossible" is a dirty, dirty word.

- Dust.

- Pardon me?

I smell dust.

Dust your counter.

Make a showplace

of the workplace.

"Make a showplace

of the workplace."

I want a major employee turnout

at the airport tonight.

This whole event

has to go off without a hitch,

otherwise, heads will roll.

He's not kidding.

That's him right there.

Mr. James, I'm so sorry.

It was an accident. It will

never happen again, I promise.

- Excuse me, Mr. James?

- Not now.

An accident?

You destroy a mannequin

during store hours

and you call it an accident?

- Mr. James.

- Not now!

What do you do, Albert?

I work for Mr. Montrose, sir.

On the Hauptmann-Koenig

presentation?

- Mr. James.

- Not now!

Do you realize

how important that presentation is?

The cream of Philadelphia society

is going to be here.

The eyes of the entire city

will be on that presentation

and on this store and on me.

- Do you understand?

- Yes.

- And have you learned your lesson?

- Yes, sir.

Good. You're fired.

For best effect,

deplore neglect, demand respect.

"Deplore neglect,

demand respect."

Now.

I'm Jason Williamson.

I think I'm supposed to report

to you. I'm the new trainee.

Ah.

Well, lucky you.

It seems we have an opening

on Mr. Montrose's staff.

Just because Hauptmann-Koenig is drab

does not mean that we have to be.

I'm going to breathe some life

into this presentation.

Remember, the password is pizzazz!

Stop! Wait!

Do you remember Miss Diana Ross

in the movie Mahogany?

Yeah.

Give me cheekbones,

or give me death!

Five, six, seven, eight.

Mr. James is coming!

Mr. James is coming!

Scatter, children! Scatter!

Bring down the curtains!

Montrose. Montrose!

I need to talk to you.

The Wizard's not here.

Go away. Go away.
