|Who said this? "All right, but I command you to lose the race."|
Pamela. Pamela was Ella's childhood friend. When Ella told her about her curse, Pamela thought it would be fun to abuse Ella... that is, until Ella punched her, and their friendship ended.
|Who said this? "Your father is not a good man, as the servants have already warned you, unless I miss my guess."|
Sir Peter. Well, even if Sir Peter IS Ella's father, he's right-- he's not a good man! He wants to send Ella off to finishing school to become a cultured young lady, but Ella doesn't want to go.
|Who said this? "Little mistress, it's hard enough to get your things ready so quick without having to do it twice."|

|Who says this? "Don't eat it, Ella. It will make you sick."|
Hattie. Hattie is a brat! She always bosses Ella around, and of course Ella has to obey. This quote takes place when Hattie, Ella, and Olive are travelling to finishing school. Hattie won't let Ella eat anything, and Ella is being forced to wait on Hattie... and rub her feet! Gross!
|Who says this? "Otemso iffibensi asura ippiri."|
Areida. Areida is from Ayortha, and she begins to teach it to Ella while they are at finishing school. Ella has just asked "Is this how they behave at finishing school?", for the girls there are all very rude. Areida replies in this quote, "Sometimes they are much worse."
|Who makes this quote? "I wonder how it can eat those things and still taste good."|

|Who said this? "Going to a ball? Like that? No, it won't do."|

|Who said this? "You see, Charmont and I have an understanding. We are secretly engaged."|

|"I shan't marry you." Who said this?|
Ella. By saying this to Char, and saving him from her curse, Ella frees herself. She winds up marrying him, because the curse is broken and they are both safe.
