A selfish prince is cursed to become a monster for the rest of his life, unless he learns to fall in love with a beautiful young woman he keeps prisoner.

What? What is it?
– Prince
How would you feel about growing a beard?
– Belle

When the Master finds out you have disobeyed his orders, he will blame *me*!
– Cogsworth
Yes, I will make sure of it, But don’t you see, this is the girl we have been waiting for! This is the one who will break the spell!
– Lumière
You know she will never love him.
– Cogsworth
A broken clock is right two times a day, mon ami. But this is not one of those times.
– Lumière

No one’s slick as Gaston, no one’s quick as Gaston / No one’s neck is incredibly thick as Gaston / For there’s no man in town half as manly / Perfect, a pure paragon / You can ask any Tom, Dick or Stanley / And they’ll tell you whose team they prefer to be on! / Who plays darts like Gaston? Who breaks hearts like Gaston? / Who’s much more than the sum of his parts like Gaston?
– LeFou
As a specimen, yes, I’m intimidating!
– Gaston
My, what a guy, that Gaston!
– LeFou

Henri? Henri!
– Clothilde
Oh, dear.
– Cogsworth
I’ve been so lonely!
– Clothilde
Turn back into a clock… Turn back into a clock.
– Cogsworth

Cogsworth, look! A beautiful girl!
– Lumière
Yes, I can see it’s a girl; I’ve lost my hands, not my eyes.
– Cogsworth
What if she is *the one*? The one who will break the spell?
– Lumière
Hello? Who said that?
– Belle

The master’s *not* as terrible as he appears!
– Mrs. Potts

What’s your name?
– Belle
That is a hairbrush.
– Cogsworth

Sacre bleu! Invaders!
– Lumière

If I didn’t know better, I’d say she even cares for him!
– Gaston
He’s not a monster, Gaston! You are!
– Belle

Have you really read every one of these books?
– Belle
No, not all of them. Some of them are in Greek.
– Beast
Was that a joke? Are you making jokes now?
– Belle
Maybe.
– Beast

And his name’s G-A-S-T… I believe there’s another T… It just occurred to me that I’m illiterate and I’ve never actually had to spell it out loud before…
– LeFou

Show me the girl…
– Beast

It’s the ones who play hard to get that are always the sweetest prey. That’s what makes Belle so appealing; she hasn’t made a fool of herself just to gain my favor. What would you call that?
– Gaston
Dignity?
– LeFou
It’s outrageously attractive, isn’t it?
– Gaston

What are you reading?
– Belle
Nothing.
– Beast
“Guinevere and Lancelot.”
– Belle
Well, actually…”King Arthur and the Round Table.” Knights, and men, and swords and things…
– Beast
Still… It’s a romance.
– Belle
Alright…
– Beast

Days in the sun, where my life has barely begun, not until my whole life is done / Will I ever leave you?
– Young Prince

How in the midst of all this sorrow can so much hope and love endure? / I was innocent and certain, Now I’m wiser but unsure…
– Belle

[singing] I want adventure in the great wide somewhere, I want it more than I can tell… And for once it might be grand to have someone understand, I want so much more than they’ve got planned!
– Belle

You are the wildest, most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen! Nobody deserves you…
– Gaston

A little gift from the Enchantress. A book that truly allows you to escape.
– Beast
How amazing!
– Belle
It was her cruelest trick of all. It was just another curse. Perhaps our world has no place for a creature like me. But it can for you.
– Beast
Think of the one place that you’ve always wanted to see. Now find it in your mind’s eye and feel it in your heart.
– Beast

[sings]I was the one who had it all, I was the master of my fate / I never needed anybody in my life, I learned the truth too late / I’ll never shake away the pain, I close my eyes but she’s still there / I let her steal into my melancholy heart, it’s more than I can bear / Now I know she’ll never leave me, even as she runs away / She will still torment me, calm me, hurt me, move me, come what may / Wasting in my lonely tower, waiting by an open door / I’ll fool myself, she’ll walk right in and be with me for evermore… / I rage against the trials of love, I curse the fading of the light / Though she’s already flown so far beyond my reach, she’s never out of sight / Now I know she’ll never leave me, even as she fades from view / She will still inspire me, be a part of everything I do / Wasting in my lonely tower, waiting by an open door / I’ll fool myself, she’ll walk right in, and as the long long nights begin, I’ll think of all that might have been / Waiting here for evermore…
– Beast

Once upon a time, in the hidden heart of France, a handsome young prince lived in a beautiful castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was selfish and unkind.
– Agathe
Master, it’s time.
– Cogsworth
He taxed the village to fill his castle with the most beautiful objects, and his parties with the most beautiful people.
– Agathe
