Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Movies)

"You can keep asking, but you're not the fairest, trust me."

Though originally a fairy tale, the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is most well-known for Disney's movie, which, though the violence was toned down, still managed to creep out many children. In the movie (and the fairy tale, natch), the Wicked Queen has a magic mirror, and she's constantly asking it who the fairest is. The Queen becomes infuriated when it tells her that Snow White is. Ah, vanity. For a more updated version (and infinitely more creepy), check out Neil Gaiman's short story "Snow, Glass, and Apples." Somehow we doubt Madison would be able to understand it, though.

"Hi-ho, it's off to work you go."
"I guess that makes me Snow White."
"You must be on your way up to see Mopey."
"How's he doing, Sleazy?"

In the fairy tale "Snow White," Snow White does meet seven dwarfs. It was Walt Disney, however, who gave them names and made them sing in the 1937 classic animated film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. As they go off to their dwarven labor, they sing, "Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go!" Because work is AWESOME, you guys. It's totally fun. Especially when you've got names like Happy and Dopey and Sleepy and...are you sensing a pattern? Hence, Logan's and Veronica's fake dwarf names. But what was up with Doc, anyway?

2.11 "Donut Run"

"This is just like that time we went to Disneyland! If I have another altercation with Snow White and her disapproving dwarves, you're taking Sneezy this time."

Known in the Disney cartoon as Sneezy, Sleepy, Dopey, Bashful, Grumpy, Happy, and Doc, Snow White's little men are just some of the bright, cheerful characters populating Disneyland, "The Happiest Place on Earth." When Veronica and Keith sneak behind the gates of the Rose mansion, far from the happiest place in town, Veronica's not so worried about seven little bearded men. Instead, she likely has her own consort of criticism in mind: Neptune's own Bashful, Sleepy, Dopey, Sneezy, Grumpy, Happy, and Doc.

"What'd you score?"
"Uh, 91."
"Dude, Snow White took it and scored an 89."

Snow White is the beautiful and innocent main character from the Brothers Grimm fairy tale "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." Dick teases Cole about his "91% pure" score by suggesting that even Snow White would score lower than he did. Perhaps she harbors secrets after living alone with seven men for years.

"There must be some mistake. On my roommate request form, I specifically said I didn't want a roommate who was, uh, you know..."
"What?"
"Better looking than me. I made it very clear."
"Sorry, man. Fairest of them all, right here."

Snow White's evil stepmother had to ask the magic mirror in order to find out that she was no longer the fairest in the kingdom. Piz just needs to look in front of him... and take a look at Wallace's fair-sized ego. One can only hope that there are no evil stepmothers or ugly stepsisters out to hunt him down; otherwise, it could be a tempestuous freshman year for him.
