- Mommy Fortuna: Oh she'll kill me one day or another. But she will remember forever that *I* caught her, and *I* held her prisoner. So there's my immortality, hey?
Mommy Fortuna: The harpy's as real as you are, and just as immortal. And she was just as easy to catch, if you want to know. Unicorn: Do not boast, old woman. Your death sits in that cage, and she hears you. Mommy Fortuna: Oh, she'll kill me one day or another. But she will remember forever that I caught her, and I held her prisoner. So there's my immortality, eh? Unicorn: Let me go. And let her go too. I cannot bear to see her caged. We are two sides of the same magic... The harpy and me, we are not for you.
Unicorn: I am no longer like the others, for no unicorn was ever born who could regret, but now I do. I regret.
[the unicorn has just looked at all the "horrors" in the other cages at the carnival and discovered that they are not real; they are only illusions] Unicorn: That one is real. That is the harpy, Celaeno. Schmendrick: Yes, the old woman caught her by chance, the same way she took you. Oh, she should never have meddled with a real harpy! Or a real unicorn for that matter. Because the truth melts her magic, always.
Amalthea: Who am I? Why am I here? What is it that I'm searching for in this strange place, day after day?
- The riddle that befuddles Ruhk - "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" - is the famous unanswered riddle asked by The Mad Hatter in "Alice In Wonderland", by Lewis Carroll. Carroll wrote the riddle as nonsense; it has no answer. This has not stopped people, despite being repeatedly told that there is not, nor should there be, any answer, from trying to contrive one. Among the suggestions are, "because Edgar Allan Poe wrote on both" and "because the notes for which they are noted are not noted for being musical notes" (the second of which is very similar to a solution that Lewis Carroll himself wearily suggested when he grew tired of people asking him about it).
Christopher Lee (who supplied the voice of King Haggard) showed up for the recording sessions armed with his own copy of the book, with several places marked to indicate things that must not, in his opinion, be omitted.
The soundtrack was one of the best selling albums of 1983 in Germany.
John Vernon, James Earl Jones and John Carradine were considered voices for King Haggard.
Dustin Hoffman, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill were considered voices for Schmendrick.
