[DOWN IN NEW ORLEANS

(PROLOGUE) PLAYING]

The Evening Star is shining bright

So make a wish and hold on tight

There's magic in the air tonight

And anything can happen

EUDORA:

"Just at that moment,

"the ugly little frog looked up with

his sad, round eyes and pleaded,

"'Oh, please, dear princess,

"'only a kiss from you

can break this terrible spell

"'that was inflicted on me

by a wicked witch!'"

(WHISPERING)

Here comes my favorite part.

(MEWING)

"And the beautiful princess was

so moved by his desperate plea

"that she stooped down,

picked up the slippery creature,

"leaned forward, raised him to her lips,

"and kissed that little frog!

(EXCLAIMS ADORINGLY)

(GAGGING)

"Then, the frog was transformed

into a handsome prince.

"They were married and lived

happily ever after. The end."

(CHEERS)

(LAUGHING)

Read it again! Read it again!

Sorry, Charlotte.

It's time for us to be heading home.

Say "good night," Tiana.

There is no way

in this whole wide world

I would ever, ever, ever...

I mean, never kiss a frog. Yuck!

Is that so?

Well, here's your

Prince Charming, Tia.

-Come on. Kiss him.

-No.

-Kiss him!

-Stop it!

-Kiss him, kiss him, kiss him!

-I won't, I won't, I won't!

I would do it. I would kiss a frog.

I would kiss a hundred frogs

if I could marry a prince

and be a princess.

(SCREECHING)

(BOTH LAUGHING)

You girls, stop tormenting

that poor little kitty.

Poor little thing.

Mmm.

Evening, Eudora.

Daddy! Daddy!

Look at my new dress. Isn't it pretty?

Look at you.

Why, I'd expect nothing less

from the finest seamstress

in New Orleans.

Ooh! I want that dress!

-Now, sugarplum...

-I want that one!

Please, please, please, please!

Eudora, you suppose you could whip

something up like that?

Anything for my best customer.

(CHARLOTTE CHEERS)

Come along, Tiana. Your daddy

should be home from work by now.

All right now, princess,

you're getting that dress, but that's it.

No more Mr. Pushover.

Now, who wants a puppy?

CHARLOTTE:

I do! I do! He's so cute!

(TRAM BELL DINGING)

(PEOPLE CHATTERING)

(BELL DINGING)

JAMES:
Mmm.

Gumbo smells good, Tiana.

I think it's done, Daddy.

-Yeah? Are you sure?

-Mmm-hmm.

-Absolutely positive?

-Yes.

Okay, I'm about to put this spoon

in my...

Wait!

Done.

Hmm.

-What?

-Well, sweetheart,

this is the best gumbo I've ever tasted!

Come here.

Eudora, our little girl's got a gift.

Mmm-hmm. I could've told you that.

A gift this special just got to be shared.

Hey, everybody, I made gumbo!

WOMAN:

Ooh, that smells good!

MAN:
I got some hush puppies, Tiana.

Here I come!

JAMES:
You know the thing

about good food?

It brings folks together

from all walks of life.

It warms them right up

and it puts little smiles on their faces.

And when I open up

my own restaurant,

I tell you, people are going

to line up for miles around

just to get a taste of my food.

Our food.

(LAUGHS) That's right, baby. Our food.

(GASPS)

-Daddy! Look!

-Where are you going?

Charlotte's fairy tale book said

if you make a wish on the Evening Star,

it's sure to come true.

Well, you wish on that star, sweetheart.

Yes. You wish and you dream

with all your little heart.

But you remember, Tiana, that

that old star can only take you

part of the way.

You got to help it along with

some hard work of your own,

and then, yeah, you can do anything

you set your mind to.

Just promise your daddy one thing.

That you'll never, ever lose sight

of what's really important.

Okay?

See you in the morning, babycakes.

Get some sleep.

Please, please, please!
