Cruella de Vil: From the very beginning I realized I saw the world differently than everyone else. That didn’t sit well with some people. But I wasn’t for everyone. I guess they were always scared that I’d be a psycho. But a new day brings new opportunities. And I was ready to make a statement.


Cruella de Vil: It’s a world of opportunity. And I was meant for more in this life.


Cruella de Vil: I want to make art. And I want to make trouble.


Baroness: Let me give you some advice. You can’t care about anyone else. Everyone else is an obstacle. If you care what an obstacle wants or feels, you’re dead. If I’d cared about anyone or thing, I might have died. You have the talent. Whether you have the killer instinct is the big question.
Cruella de Vil: I hope I do.


Cruella de Vil: I guess you must hate her.
Baroness: She has made it me or her, and I choose me.


Baroness: [referring to the dress designs] That’s foolish. Unhinged. Well, you’re fired.


Baroness: [as Cruella gasps] Why are you speaking?
Cruella de Vil: I think you nicked me.


Cruella de Vil: [referring to the Baroness] She thought she owned everyone. But there’s something about poetic justice that’s just so poetic.


Cruella de Vil: Do you have a light?
[takes the match offered and lights up her dress which transforms into a red dress]


Baroness: Get her.
George: This doesn’t have to be a scene.
Cruella de Vil: It really, really does.


Cruella de Vil: I’d like to remind you all that I’m doing this in heels.
Baroness: What was your name?
Cruella de Vil: Cruella.


Cruella de Vil: I want to make trouble. You in?
Artie: I do love trouble.


Anita: You have a bit of an extreme side.
Cruella de Vil: Yes, darling. And what fun that is!


Baroness: She stole my dogs.


Cruella de Vil: How does the saying go? I am woman. Hear me roar.


Cruella de Vil: I’m just getting started, darling.


Cruella de Vil: The thing is, I was born brilliant. Born bad. And a little bit mad.


Cruella de Vil: I’m Cruella.


Cruella de Vil: Alright, we should put on some music or something. Lighten the mood.


Cruella de Vil: Don’t worry, there’s lots more bad things coming.
