Queen of Hearts: “The Mad Hatter is the only one who can kill those hostile towards Alice.” // Only you can become Alice’s strength, Hatter.

Mad Hatter: Ridiculous. Why do I have to kill for someone I don’t even know? // I don’t even know who I am.

Queen of Hearts: You will listen to my orders, whether you like it or not.


Queen of Hearts: In Wonderland, it is only your time that is accurate. // If you ever want to stop it moving, then come to me anytime, Hatter. // I’m counting on you.

Mad Hatter: I’ll / make / that kid / cry one day!

Alice: What are you doing?

Mad Hatter: Alice…

Alice: Is it really the time for you to be relaxing and having tea? // You’re going to / kill the White Rabbit, aren’t you?


Duchess: You don’t need to go to this trouble.

sfx bubble: bow

Box: Will the question be answered?
