Mother Gothel: Great. Now *I'm* the bad guy.
[looking in the mirror with Rapunzel]
Mother Gothel: Look in that mirror. I see a strong, confident, beautiful young lady.
Mother Gothel: Oh look, you're here too.
Mother Gothel: Skip the drama, stay with Mama!
Mother Gothel: I'm just teasing!
[Rapunzel pulls Mother Gothel up the tower]
Rapunzel: Hi. Welcome home, Mother.
Mother Gothel: Oh! Rapunzel, how you manage to do that every single day without fail, it looks absolutely exhausting, darling!
Rapunzel: Oh, it's nothing.
Mother Gothel: Then I don't know why it takes so long.
Mother Gothel: [singing] ... The *Plague!*
Rapunzel: [shocked] No!
Mother Gothel: [gleefully] Yes!
Rapunzel: So mother, earlier I was saying tomorrow is a really big day, and you didn't really respond, so I'm just gonna tell you: IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! Tada!
Mother Gothel: No no no, can't be. I distinctly remember, your birthday was last year.
Rapunzel: That's the funny thing about birthdays, they're kind of an annual thing.
Mother Gothel: Rapunzel, please, stop with the mumbling. You know how I feel about the mumbling. Blah blah blah blah blah, it's very annoying! I'm just teasing, you're adorable. I love you so much, darling.
Mother Gothel: [singing] Mother knows best./Take it from your mumsy./On your own you won't survive./Sloppy, underdressed,/Immature, clumsy,/Please!/They'll eat you up alive!
Mother Gothel: [Rapunzel has just locked Flynn in her closet] Rapunzel! Let down your hair!
Rapunzel: One moment, Mother!
Mother Gothel: I have a big surprise!
Rapunzel: Uh... I do too!
Mother Gothel: Ooh, I'll bet my surprise is bigger!
Rapunzel: [to herself] I seriously doubt it.
Rapunzel: Mother Gothel: Rapunzel? Rapunzel, what's going on up there? Are you alright?
Rapunzel: I'm the lost princess.
Mother Gothel: Mother Gothel: Oh, please speak up Rapunzel. You know how I hate the mumbling.
Rapunzel: Rapunzel: I am the lost princess, aren't I?... Did I mumble, Mother? Or should I even call you that?
Mother Gothel: Mother Gothel: Oh Rapunzel, did you even hear yourself? Why would ask such a ridiculous question?
Rapunzel: Rapunzel: It was you! It was all you!
Mother Gothel: Everything that I did was to protect... YOU.
[Rapunzel pushes past her]
Mother Gothel: Rapunzel.
Rapunzel: [walking down the stairs] I've spent my entire life hiding from people who would use me for my powers?
Mother Gothel: Rapunzel!
Rapunzel: Rapunzel: I should have been hiding... from YOU!
Mother Gothel: Mother Gothel: Where would you go?
[Cut to Flynn struggling with the guards]
Mother Gothel: Mother Gothel:
Mother Gothel: He won't be there for you.
Rapunzel: What did you do to him?
Mother Gothel: Mother Gothel: That criminal is to be hanged for his crimes.
Mother Gothel: Now, Now. It's alright. Listen to me. Everything is as it should be.
[tries to touch her but Rapunzel grabs her wrist]
Rapunzel: No! You were wrong about the world. And you were wrong about me! AND I WILL NEVER LET YOU USE MY HAIR AGAIN!
[Gothel breaks free of Rapunzels grip only to cause a nearby mirror to fall and smash. Rapunzel then turns to leave]
Mother Gothel: You want me to be the bad guy? Fine.
[Advances toward Rapunzel threateningly]
Mother Gothel: Now I'm the bad guy...
Rapunzel: [about Flynn] I think he likes me.
Mother Gothel: Likes you? Please, Rapunzel, that's demented!/ This is why you never should have left!/Dear, this whole romance that you've invented / Just proves you're too naive to be here./Why would he like you? Come on now, really./Look at you-you think that he's impressed?/Don't be a dummy, come with mummy./Mother...
Rapunzel: [retorts] No!
Mother Gothel: No? Oh. I see how it is. Rapunzel knows best; Rapunzel's so mature now./Such a clever grown-up miss./Rapunzel knows best. Fine, if you're so sure now,/Go ahead and give him this, huh?
[hands Rapunzel the satchel with the crown inside]
Rapunzel: How did you...
Mother Gothel: *This* is why he's here! Don't let him deceive you!/Give it to him, watch, you'll see!/Trust me, my dear, that's how fast he'll leave you./I won't say I told you so!/No, Rapunzel knows best!/Well, if he's such a dreamboat,/Go and put him to the test!/If he's lying, don't come crying/Mother... knows best!
Rapunzel: I met someone.
Mother Gothel: Yes. The wanted thief, I'm so proud.
