Beauty & the Beast Themed Food Ideas
LEFOU’S BREW RECIPE
The boys loved it. It’s no-sugar added frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow, topped with all-natural passion fruit-mango foam. We do a quick and easy version at home.
- 2 -12oz cans of frozen no-sugar added apple juice concentrate
- 12 oz cold water
- 3 TBSP Toasted Marshmallow Syrup
Blend ingredients quickly until combined but still nice and slushy. Serve immediately! The official version has a delicious passion fruit mango foam, but to make it easy on ourselves at home we just stick with regular whipped cream. If you wanted to make the foam you could add some passion/mango nectar to some whipped cream
Beauty & the Beast Belle Cupcakes
First, assemble your cupcake ingredients:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- ¾ cups olive oil
- ½ cup buttermilk
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375F and line a muffin tray with 12 cupcake liners. I usually like using silicone muffin liners, but I would go with an elegant princess-inspired liner for these cupcakes.
In a large bowl, beat the oil and sugar together until light and fluffy, then add in the egg, buttermilk, and vanilla. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix the remaining dry ingredients together and then incorporate into the wet batter, working out any lumps but being careful not to over mix.
Portion out the batter into the lined muffin tin, filling each liner about 3/4 full. This (along with the higher heat) will give you those dramatic domed cupcakes like they have in bakeries, instead of flat, boring cupcakes.
Bake 18-22 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean and the tops of the cupcakes spring back when tapped lightly.
Cool the cupcakes on a cooling rack as you prepare the frosting.
While the cupcakes are baking, assemble your frosting ingredients:
- 1/2 lb butter (2 sticks), room temperature
- 3-4 cups icing sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1-3 Tablespoons milk or cream
- Yellow food dye
- Red fondant
- Rose tool
In a medium-sized bowl, beat the butter and 3 cups of icing sugar. Add the vanilla and 1 tablespoon of the cream. Taste and adjust with more cream or icing sugar to achieve the desired taste and consistency.
Once you have the ideal frosting, add a few drops of yellow dye and mix in. Adjust until you have a bright yellow reminiscent of Belle’s dress. I like to add a couple drops at a time until I hit the perfect amount so that we don’t over do it.
Add the frosting to a piping bag – I like to invert my piping bag in a glass for easy filling.
Once the cupcakes are cool, snip the end off of your piping bag and start swirling on the frosting! Start in the middle of the cupcake and work your way out. Swirl back in and out, making ridges on the outer layer to echo Belle’s swoop-y dress. If you’re very confident, you can even give the outer layer a bit of a wave.
Top each cupcake with a sugar rose and serve!
- 4 medium apples (green or red)
- 2 sheets frozen puff pastry
- 1/2 cup preserves (I use apricot)
- Juice from 1 lemon
- Powdered sugar
what to do
Let puff pastry thaw as directed. 1 sheet makes 6, and you will need to make them 6 at a time or the remaining puff pastry will get too warm and sticky.
Half 2 apples and remove cores without cutting them through, then slice as thin as possible (making litte rainbows). Fill a small microwaveable bowl halfway with water and the juice from half a lemon. Place the apples in the bowl and microwave for 3 minutes. Remove and drain the water.
With a rolling pin, roll out the puff pastry sheet so it is thin and pliable, then cut into 6 strips.
In a small dish, spoon about 3 tablespoons of preserves, and add about 2 tablespoons of water. Microwave for 1 minute. Mixture should be thinned, but not watery.
Spread the mixture on each strip of puff pastry, then line the apples over the top edge, overlapping them at the middle. Sprinkle the whole strip with cinnamon, fold the pastry in half so the bottoms of the apples are covered, then roll from one side to the other. Be sure to seal the pastry to itself so the gooey stuff stays in there!
Place in a greased muffin tin, and after you make the other six (repeat steps above), place in the oven at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes or until the edges of the apples start to brown. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
- 20 chocolate sandwich cookies
- 1 small box instant cheesecake flavor pudding (3.4 oz)
- 3 tablespoons instant chocolate pudding
- 1 8oz block cream cheese, softened
- 1 8oz tub of whipped topping, thawed
- 1½ cups milk
- Mix the cheesecake pudding with milk.
- Put the pudding in the refrigerator to chill.
- Crush the chocolate cookies until there are no large pieces.
- Combine the cheesecake pudding with crushed cookies, whipped topping and cream cheese and mix well.
- Slowly add chocolate pudding until the desired color is reached.

The Cheese Soufflé From Beauty and the Beast
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, plus more to butter a 6-cup gratin dish
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups cold whole milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
5 extra-large eggs, beaten
2 1/3 cups grated Swiss cheese, preferably Gruyere (about 6 ounces)
3 tablespoons minced fresh chive blades
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a medium sized pot over medium heat, melt the 6 tablespoons of butter and add the flour, stirring and cooking for about a minute, until it smells nutty. Add about 2 tablespoons of milk at a time, whisking to combine. At first it’ll be super thick, but just keep adding liquid and stirring. You should end up with a thick, velvety sauce. If a little thin, cook and stir it for a few minutes until it reduces, or if too thick, add a little more milk. Take the sauce off the heat and season with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust if needed.
Add the eggs, the cheese and the chives to the white sauce, and mix well to combine. Pour into the buttered dish and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the soufflé is puffy and well browned on top. Serve immediately.
Beauty and the Beast
Narrator: Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter’s night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman’s ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart. And as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form, the beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his 21st year. If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a beast?
Beast: [struggling] You… you came back.
Belle: Of course I came back. I couldn’t let them… oh, this is all my fault!
[Belle cradles the Beast’s head]
Belle: If only I had gotten here sooner.
Beast: Maybe… maybe… it’s better… it’s better this way.
Belle: [Belle tries to silence him] Don’t talk like that! You’ll be alright. We’re together now; everything’s going to be fine, you’ll see…
Beast: And at least… at least I got to see you… one last time.
[the Beast dies]
Belle: No, NO! Please. Please… Please don’t leave me.
[Belle begins to sob]
Belle: I love you!
[the last rose petal falls]
Gaston: It’s not right for a woman to read. Soon she starts getting *ideas*, and *thinking*…
Beast: I want to do something for her… but what?
Cogsworth: Well, there’s the usual things: flowers… chocolates… promises you don’t intend to keep…
Lumiere: No, no! It’s got to be more something more special than that!
Gaston: Lefou, I’m afraid I’ve been thinking…
Lefou: A dangerous pastime?
Gaston: I know!
Gaston: [rudely flipping through Belle’s book] How can you read this? There’s no pictures!
Belle: Well, some people use their imagination…
Gaston: This is the day your dreams come true.
Belle: What do you know about my dreams, Gaston?
Gaston: Plenty! Here, picture this: A rustic hunting lodge, my latest kill roasting on the fire, and my little wife massaging my feet, while the little ones play on the floor with the dogs. We’ll have six or seven.
Gaston: No, Belle! Strapping boys, like me!
Belle: Imagine that.
Gaston: And do you know who that little wife will be?
Belle: Let me think…
Gaston: You, Belle!
Belle: Gaston, I’m-I’m speechless. I really don’t know what to say.
Gaston: Say you’ll marry me!
Belle: I’m very sorry, Gaston… but… but I just don’t deserve you!
[Belle is washing the Beast’s wounds]
Beast: [roaring] AARGH! THAT HURTS!
Belle: If you’d hold still, it wouldn’t hurt as much!
Beast: Well, if you hadn’t have run away, this wouldn’t have happened!
Belle: If you hadn’t *frightened* me, I wouldn’t have run away!
[Belle folds her arms in anger]
Beast: [pause] Well *you* shouldn’t have been in the west *wing*!
Belle: Well, *you* should learn to control your temper!
Belle: [the Beast’s servants glare at him in agreement] Now, hold still. This might sting a little.
[presses cloth to wound; the beast growls in pain]
Belle: By the way, thank you… for saving my life.
Beast: [stops growling] You’re welcome.
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: [singing] Ohhh, isn’t this amazing / It’s my favorite part because, you’ll see / Here’s where she meets Prince Charming / But she won’t discover that it’s him / ‘Til chapter three.
Cogsworth: Well, Your Highness, I must say everything is going just swimmingly. I knew you had it in you, ha ha!
Beast: [sadly] I let her go.
Cogsworth: Huh, huh, huh! Yes, yes, spled-
Cogsworth: You what? How could you do that?
Beast: I had to.
Cogsworth: Yes, but, but, but but… why?
Beast: Because… I love her.
Beast: [singing] She glanced this way, I thought I saw… And when we touched, she didn’t shudder at my paw. No, it can’t be; I’ll just ignore… But then, she’s never looked at me that way before…
Cogsworth: As you can see, the pseudo-façade was stripped away to reveal the minimalist Rococo design. Note the unusual inverted vaulted ceilings.
[as he, Lumiere, and Belle walk past the knights in armor, they turn their heads to follow them]
Cogsworth: This is yet another example of the late neoclassic Baroque period. And, as I always say, “If it’s not Baroque, don’t fix it!”
[notices the knights with their heads turned]
Cogsworth: As you were!
[the knights turn their heads back forward]
Beast: Oh, it’s no use. She’s so beautiful, and I’m… Well, look at me!
Mrs. Potts: Oh, must help her to see past all that.
Beast: I don’t know how.
Mrs. Potts: Well, you can start by making yourself more presentable. Straighten up. Try to act like a gentleman.
[Beast stands up straighter]
Lumiere: Ah, yes. When she comes in give her a dashing, debonair smile. Come, come, show me the smile.
[Beast gives a big, forced smile]
Mrs. Potts: But don’t frighten the poor girl!
Prince Adam: Belle… it’s me!
[Belle stares into his eyes for a minute]
Belle: [smiles] It *IS* you!
Beast: [pounds on Belle’s door yelling] I thought I told you to come down to dinner!
Belle: I’m not hungry!
Beast: [yelling to Belle] You’ll come out, or I’ll-I’ll-I’ll break down the door!
Lumiere: Master, I could be wrong, but that might not be the best way to win the girl’s affections.
Cogsworth: Please. Attempt to be a gentlemen.
Beast: But, she’s being so *difficult*!
Mrs. Potts: Gently… gently…
Beast: [calmly] Will you come down to dinner?
Beast: [points at door] Hmm?
Cogsworth: Ah-ah-ah, suave, genteel.
Beast: [suavely] It would give me great pleasure…
[tries to hold in his anger]
Beast: if you would join me for dinner.
Cogsworth: [clears throat and mutters] We say please.
Belle: No, thank you!
Beast: [yells] You can’t stay in there forever!
Belle: Yes, I can!
Beast: [yells] Fine! Then go ahead and *starve!* If she doesn’t eat with me, then she doesn’t eat at all!
[storms down through the hallway and slams the door behind him]
Mrs. Potts: Oh dear. That didn’t go very well at all, did it?
Lumiere: Ma chère mademoiselle. It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight. And now, we invite to relax, let us pull up a chair, as the dining room proudly presents… your dinner.
Gaston: [to Belle about the Beast] If I didn’t know better, I’d think you had *feelings* for this monster.
Belle: He’s no monster, Gaston… *YOU* are!
[Gaston frowns in disgust]
Chip: Do I still have to sleep in the cupboard?
Beast: Who are you? What are you doing here?
Maurice: I-I-I was lost in the woods, and-and…
Beast: You’re not WELCOME HERE!
Maurice: I-I-I’m sorry.
Beast: What’re you staring at?
Beast: So, you’ve come to stare at the BEAST, have you?
Maurice: Please, I meant no harm. I-I just need a place to stay.
Beast: I’ll give you a place to stay.
Maurice: No, no! Please! Don’t, no!
Lumiere: [trying to prepare the Beast for his dinner with Belle] Voila! Oh, you look so… so…
Beast: [fur done up in curls and bows] Stupid.
Lumiere: Not quite the word I was looking for, but perhaps a – little more off the top.
Cogsworth: [Clears throat] Your lady awaits.
Belle: [in the darkness] Who’s there? Who are you?
Beast: The master of this castle…
Belle: I’ve come for my father. Please, let him out! Can’t you see, he’s sick?
Beast: [Yelling] Then he shouldn’t have trespassed here!
Belle: But he could die! Please, I’ll do anything!
Beast: There’s nothing you can do! He’s my prisoner…
Belle: [to herself] Oh, there must be some way I can…
[to the Beast]
Belle: Wait! Take me instead.
Beast: You would take his place?
Maurice: BELLE, NO! You don’t know what you’re doing!
Belle: [to the Beast] If I did, would you let him go?
Beast: Yes. But… you must promise to stay here forever!
Belle: [pause] Come into the light…
[the Beast steps in the castle light to reveal himself; Belle gasps and turns away]
Maurice: No, Belle! I WON’T LET YOU DO THIS!
[Belle looks at him, then rises]
Belle: You have my word…
[Belle kneels to the floor, sobbing]
Beast: [upon catching Belle in the forbidden west wing] Why did you come here?
Belle: I’m-I’m sorry.
Beast: I warned you never to COME HERE!
Belle: I didn’t mean any harm.
Beast: [yells] Do you realize what you could have done?
[throws a table]
Belle: [cowering] Please… stop…
Beast: Get out!
Belle: [dashes out of the room] No!
Beast: GET OUT!
Cogsworth: Enchanted? Ha-ha ha-ha! Who said anything about the castle being enchanted? Ha-ha-ha…
Cogsworth: It was you, wasn’t it?
Cogsworth: Couldn’t keep quiet, could we? Just had to invite him to stay, didn’t we?
Cogsworth: ‘Serve him tea. Sit in the master’s chair. Pet the pooch!’
Lumiere: I was trying to be hospitable.
Gaston: [singing] I use antlers in all of my decorating!
Gaston: I’d like to thank you all for coming to my wedding. But first I’d better go in there and uh, propose to the girl!
[chuckles as the men at his “wedding” laugh while the Bimbettes sob]
[giving Beast advice on how to impress Belle]
Lumiere: Impress her with your rapier wit.
Mrs. Potts: But be gentle.
Lumiere: Shower her with compliments.
Mrs. Potts: But be sincere.
Lumiere: And above all…
Mrs. Potts, Lumiere: You must control your temper!
Beast: [growling softly] What?
Lumiere: Since the girl is going to be with us for quite some time, I was just thinking – you might want to offer her a more comfortable room.
Beast: [growls, then walks past]
Lumiere: Then again, maybe not!
Cogsworth: [singing] Well, perhaps there’s something there that wasn’t there before.
Mrs. Potts: [singing] There may be something there that wasn’t there before.
Chip: *What’s* there, Mama?
Mrs. Potts: Shh. I’ll tell you when you’re older.
Belle: Gaston, you are positively primeval!
Gaston: Why, thank you, Belle! What would you say if you and I took a walk over to the tavern and took a look at my trophies?
Belle: [smiles] Maybe some other time…
Villagers: [singing] We don’t like what we don’t understand, in fact it scares us, and this monster is mysterious at least…
Gaston: [egging the Beast] COME ON OUT AND *FIGHT*!
Gaston: Were you in love with her, Beast? Did you honestly think she’d want you, when she had someone like *me?*
Monsieur D’Arque: I don’t usually leave the asylum in the middle of the night, but he said you’d make it worth my while.
[Gaston presents him with a bag of money]
Monsieur D’Arque: Ah, I’m listening.
Gaston: It’s like this: I’ve got my heart set on marrying Belle, but she needs a little… persuasion.
Lefou: [chuckles] Turned him down flat.
[Gaston hits him]
Gaston: Everyone knows her father’s a lunatic. He was in here tonight, raving about a *beast* in a *castle*.
Monsieur D’Arque: Maurice is harmless.
Gaston: The point is, Belle would do *anything* to keep him from being locked up.
Lefou: Yeah, even marry *him*.
[points at Gaston; ducks when Gaston tries to hit him again]
Monsieur D’Arque: So you want me to throw her father into the asylum unless she agrees to marry you?
[Lefou nods eagerly]
Monsieur D’Arque: Oh, that is despicable.
Monsieur D’Arque: I love it!
Chip: Mama, there’s a *girl* in the castle!
Mrs. Potts: Now Chip, I’ll not have you making up such wild stories.
Chip: Really, mama, I *saw* her!
Mrs. Potts: Not another word, into the tub.
Chip: [Mrs. Potts lifts Chip into the tub] But… What?
Featherduster: A girl! I saw a girl in the castle!
Featherduster: [Chip emerges from the water in the tub]
Chip: See? I told ya.
Gaston: [singing] Here in town there’s only she, who is beautiful as me! So I’m making plans to woo and marry Belle!
Gaston, Lefou: No one plots like Gaston.
Gaston: Takes cheap shots like Gaston.
Lefou: Plans to persecute harmless crackpots like Gaston!
Beast: I’ll show you to your room.
Belle: My room? But I thought…
Beast: [impatiently] Do you wanna stay in the tower?
Beast: Then follow me…
Lumiere: Be… our… guest, be our guest, put our service to the test / Tie your napkin round your waist, cheri, and let us provide the rest / Soup du jour? Hors d’oeuvres? Why, we only live to serve / Try the gray stuff, it’s delicious! Don’t believe me? Ask the dishes! / They can sing, they can dance, after all, Miss, this is France / And a dinner here is never second best / Come on, unfold our menu, / Take a glance and then you / will be our guest / Oui, our guest, Be our guest!
Lumiere: [Chorus joins in] Beef ragoune, cheese soufflé, pie and pudding en flambé / We’ll prepare and serve with flair, a culinary cabaret / You’re alone and you’re scared, but the banquet’s all prepared / No one’s gloomy or complaining, while the flatware’s entertaining / We tell jokes, I do tricks, with my fellow candlesticks / And it’s all in perfect taste, that you can bet! / Come on and fill your glass / You’ve won your own free pass / To be our guest / If you’re stressed, it’s fine dining we suggest! Be our guest, be our guest, be our guest!
Lumiere: Life is so unnerving, for a servant who’s not serving / He’s not whole, without a soul, to wait upon! Ah, those good old days when we were useful… suddenly those good old days are gone / Ten years we’ve been rusting, needing so much more than dusting / Needing exercise, a chance to use our skill! / Most days, we just lay around the castle / Flabby fat and lazy, then you walked in and oops-a-daisy!
Mrs. Potts: It’s a guest! It’s a guest! Sakes alive and I’ll be blessed! / Wine’s been poured, and thank the Lord I’ve had the napkins freshly pressed / With dessert, she’ll want tea, and my dear, that’s fine with me / While the cups do their soft-shoeing I’ll be bubbling, I’ll be brewing / I’ll get warm, piping hot… Heaven’s sakes, is that a spot? / Clean it up! We want the company impressed! / We’ve got a lot to do! / Is it one lump or two? / For our guest! She’s our guest!
Chorus: Be our guest! Be our guest! Our command is your request! / It’s been ten years since we had anybody here, and we’re obsessed! / With your meal, with your ease, yes indeed, we aim to please / While the candlelight’s still glowing, let us help you, we’ll keep going…
Lumiere, Chorus, Mrs. Potts: Course by course! One by one! / Till you shout “Enough! I’m done!” / And we send you off to sleep as you digest! / Tonight, you’ll prop your feet up / But for now let’s eat up / Be our guest! Be our guest! Be our guest! Please be our guest!
Beast: You will join me for dinner…
Beast: That’s not a request!
Featherduster: [to Lumiere] I’ve been burnt by you before!
Cogsworth: [shakes Lumiere’s hand in truce] Well, Lumiere, old friend. Shall we let bygones be bygones?
Lumiere: Of course, mon ami. I told you she would break the spell!
Cogsworth: I beg your pardon, old friend, but I believe *I* told *you*.
Lumiere: No, you didn’t. *I* told *you*!
Cogsworth: You most certainly did not, you pompous, paraffin-headed peabrain!
Lumiere: En garde, you… you overgrown pocket watch!
Gaston: Take whatever booty you can find, but remember: the Beast is mine!
Lefou: So, how did it go?
Gaston: [grabs Lefou] I’ll have Belle for my wife! Make no mistake about *that*!
[throws Lefou in the mud]
Lefou: [to the pig] Touchy!
[the pig oinks]
[Gaston and the Beast are battling on the tower]
Gaston: It’s over, Beast! BELLE IS *MINE*!
[the Beast strikes at Gaston, grabs him and holds him over the edge]
Gaston: Let me go! Let me go, please! Don’t hurt me! I’ll do anything! Anything!
[after a tense moment, the Beast drags Gaston away from the edge]
Beast: Get out!
Cogsworth: [Maurice has opened his door to peek inside] Sir, close that at once! Do you mind?
Villagers: [singing] Raise the flag, sing the song, here we come, we’re fifty strong, and fifty Frenchmen can’t be wrong… Let’s kill the Beast!
Villagers: [singing:] It’s know no wonder that her name means beauty / her looks have got no parallel / But behind that fair façade / I’m afraid she’s rather odd / Very different from the rest of us / She’s nothing like the rest of us / Yes, different from the rest of us is Belle.
Belle: [from deleted scene]
[Belle is reading Romeo and Juliet to the Beast]
Belle: “And there never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo…”
Beast: [smiling] Hmmm. Could you read it again?
Belle: Why here?
[Belle hands him the storybook]
Belle: Why don’t you read it to me?
[he takes the book]
[he flips through the pages and tries to read but stutters]
Beast: [sighs] I can’t…
Belle: [softly] You mean, you never learned?
Beast: I learned… a little. It’s just been… so long.
Belle: Well, here, I’ll help you.
[Belle takes back the book and sets it on the table; she flips through the pages]
Belle: Let’s start here.
Beast: “Two…” I knew that…
[the Beast keeps reading]
Beast: “Two households…”
Beast: [growling] There’s a stranger here!
Villagers: [singing] It’s a pity and a sin / she doesn’t quite fit in / ’cause she really is a funny girl / a beauty but a funny girl / she really is a funny girl… that Belle!
Mrs. Potts: Pardon me, Master…
Beast: Leave me in peace.
Mrs. Potts: But sir, the castle is under attack!
Villagers: [singing outside and trying to knock the door down] Kill the Beast! Kill the Beast!
Lumiere: [All the objects are trying to hold the door closed] This isn’t working.
Featherduster: Oh Lumiere. We must do *something*.
Lumiere: Wait, I know!
Villagers: [Still singing outside] Kill the Beast! Kill the Beast!
Mrs. Potts: What should we do, Master?
Beast: It doesn’t matter now. Just let them come.
Additional Voice: [singing] I need 6 eggs.
Additional Voice: That’s too expensive!
Lefou: [singing] Gaston is the best, and the rest is all dr-ips!
[accidentally splashes a mug of beer on Gaston standing right behind him; Gaston punches him back]
Maurice: [to his machine] I’m… I’m about ready to give up on this hunk of junk.
Belle: You always say that!
Maurice: I mean it this time! I’ll never get this boneheaded contraption to work!
Belle: Yes you will, and you’ll win first prize at the fair tomorrow.
Belle: And become a world famous inventor.
Maurice: You really believe that?
Belle: I always have.
Maurice: Well, what are we waiting for? I’ll have this thing fixed in no time!
Beast: [to Belle] This castle is your home now, so you can go anywhere you like, *except* the West Wing.
Belle: What’s in the West…
Beast: IT’S FORBIDDEN!
Belle: My father’s not crazy and I can prove it!
[to the magic mirror]
Belle: Show me the Beast!
[the Beast appears in the mirror]
Female Townsperson: Is it dangerous?
Belle: Oh no, he’d never hurt anyone. Please, I know he looks vicious, but he’s really kind and gentle. He’s my friend.
Gaston: [before proposing to Belle at her house] Lefou, now when Belle and I come out that door…
Lefou: Oh, I know! I know! I STRIKE UP THE BAND!
[Lefou starts composing the wedding band and they play]
Gaston: [Gaston quickly shoves a trumpet on Lefou’s head] NOT YET!
Cogsworth: [Beast has released Belle, meaning there’s no-one to break the spell] Now, it’s too late.
Monsieur D’Arque: I don’t usually leave the asylum in the middle of the night… But, he said you’d make it worth my while.
[Gaston throws a bag of coins on the table]
Monsieur D’Arque: I’m listening.
Beast: I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU TO COME DOWN TO DINNER!
Belle: I’M NOT HUNGRY!
Beast: YOU COME OUT, OR I’LL… I’LL BREAK DOWN THE DOOR!!!
Lumiere: Uh, Master, I could be wrong, but that may not be the best way to win the girl’s affections.
Cogsworth: Please! Attempt to be a gentleman.
Beast: [through clenched teeth] But she is being so difficult!
Mrs. Potts: Gently, gently.
Beast: [to Belle] Will you come down to dinner?
Beast: [to the objects] Hmm?
Cogsworth: Suave. Genteel.
Beast: [back to Belle, with forced calm] It would give me great pleasure, if you would join me for dinner.
Cogsworth: And we say please.
Belle: NO THANK YOU!
Beast: YOU CAN’T STAY IN THERE FOREVER!
Belle: YES, I CAN!!
Beast: FINE!! THEN GO AHEAD AND STAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARVE!!!!! [to the objects] If she doesn’t eat with me, then she doesn’t eat at all!
