frog prince:The myth or belief, based on the fairy tale of the frog transformed into a prince by the kiss of a beautiful princess , that a kiss can turn uglyness into beauty and transform a plain man into the right man , or into a beautiful, or loving , or caring lover .
(1) Taylor (Mark Harmon) and Veronica (Madeleine Stowe) in Worth Winning (1989):
-- Taylor: ' Veronica , it is not real life , it is a fairy tale. Come on! Did you ever read The Frog Prince? In that one he's staying a frog until she kisses him and brings him back to life .'
-- Veronica : ' Yeah, well I kissed a lot of frogs and I haven't met a prince yet .'
-- Taylor: ' You're kissing the wrong frogs. It's hard to find the right person. It's a search, a process. I don't think it's supposed to be easy .'
--Veronica: ' You know , some say you have to kiss a frog twice .'
(2) Grifter Myra Langtry (Annette Bening) to Roy Dillon (John Cusack) in The Grifters (1990): ' I had ten good years with Cole and I want them back . I gotta have a partner . I looked and I looked and believe me, brother , I kissed a lot of fucking frogs and you're my prince .'
