all great The Little Mermaid quotes
Triton: I'm really looking forward to this performance, Sebastian.
Sebastian: Your Majesty. This will be the finest concert I have ever conducted. Your daughters, they will be spectacular!
Triton: Yes, and especially my little Ariel.
Sebastian: Yes, yes. She has the most beautiful voice. Hmm?
Sebastian: If only she'd show up for rehearsals once in a while.
Ariel: All right, I'm going inside. You can just stay here and watch for sharks.
Flounder: Okay. Yeah, you go. I'll just stay and What? Sharks? Ariel!
Scuttle: [Looking throught the wrong end of a telescope, shouting as if Ariel was far away] Whoa! Mermaid off the port bow! Ariel! How you doin', kid?
[Ariel pulls down the telescope]
Scuttle: Whoa, what a swim.
Triton: I just don't know what we're going to do with you, young lady.
Ariel: Daddy, I'm sorry, I just forgot, I.
Triton: As a result of your careless behavior.
Sebastian: Careless and reckless behavior!
Triton: The entire celebration was, er.
Sebastian: Well, it was ruined! That's all, completely destroyed! This concert was to be the pinnacle of my distinguished career. Now thanks to you, I am the laughingstock of the entire kingdom!
Flounder: But it wasn't her fault! Ah well first, ahh, this shark chased us yeah yeah! And we tried to but we couldn't and then grr and and we whoa! Ah, and then we were safe. But then this seagull came, and it was this is this, and that is that, and.
[Flounder gasps and hides in Ariel’s hair as she gives him a dirty look]
Triton: What? Oh you went up to the surface again, didn't you? Didn't you?
Ariel: Nothing happened.
Triton: Ariel, How many times must we go through this? You could've been seen by one of those barbarians by by one of those humans!
Ariel: Daddy, they're not barbarians!
Triton: They're dangerous; do you think I would want to see my youngest daughter snared by some fish eater's hook?
Ariel: I'm sixteen years old. I'm not a child anymore.
Triton: Don't you take that tone of voice with me, young lady. As long as you live under my ocean, you'll obey my rules!
Ariel: But if you would just listen.
Triton: Not another word! And I am never, never to hear of you going to the surface again. Is that clear?
[Ariel leaves, crying]
Ursula: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. I can't stand it! It's too easy! The child is in love with a human. And not just any human. A prince!
Ursula: Her daddy'll love that. King Triton's headstrong, lovesick girl would make a charming addition to my little garden.
Triton: Sebastian, I'm concerned about Ariel. Have you noticed she's been acting peculiar lately?
Sebastian: Oh! Uh, peculiar?
Triton: You know, mooning about, daydreaming, singing to herself. You haven't noticed, hmm?
Sebastian: Oh, well I.
Triton: I know you've been keeping something from me.
Sebastian: Keeping something?
Triton: About Ariel?
Sebastian: [Stops his knees from shaking] Ariel?
Triton: In love? Hmm?
Sebastian: I tried to stop her, sir! She wouldn't listen! I told her to stay away from humans! They are bad! They are trouble! They are.
Triton: Humans? What about humans?
Sebastian: Who said anything about humans?
Triton: I consider myself a reasonable merman. I set certain rules, and I expect those rules to be obeyed.
Ariel: But Daddy!
Triton: Is it true you rescued a human from drowning?
Ariel: Daddy, I had to.
Triton: Contact between the human world and the mer world is strictly forbidden. Ariel, you know that! Everyone knows that.
Ariel: He would have died.
Triton: One less human to worry about!
Ariel: You don't even know him.
Triton: Know him? I don't have to know him, they're all the same! Spineless, savage, harpooning fish eaters, incapable of any feeling of.
Ariel: Daddy, I love him!
Triton: No! Have you lost your senses completely? He's a human, you're a mermaid!
Ariel: I don't care.
Triton: So help me, Ariel, I am going to get through to you; and if this is the only way, so be it!
Ursula: Come in. Come in, my child. We mustn't lurk in doorways. It's rude. One might question your upbringing.
Ursula: Well, angelfish, the solution to your problem is simple. The only way to get what you want is to become a human yourself.
Ariel: Can you do that?
Ursula: My dear, sweet child. That's what I do. It's what I live for, to help unfortunate merfolk, like yourself, poor souls with no one else to turn to.
