Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Robby Benson: 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.
[Beast dies from his injuries and blood loss]
Belle : No, No! Please. Please. Please don't leave me.
[Belle begins to sob]
Belle : I love you!
[the last rose petal falls]
[Belle is washing the Beast's wounds]
Beast : [roars] 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.
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.
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, dejected] Will you come down to dinner?
Belle : No!
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.
Beast : [dejected] 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!*
[he turns to the objects]
Beast : 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?
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!
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?
Maurice : N-nothing.
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!
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 : [yelling, while throwing and smashing more furniture] Get out!
Belle : Is anyone here?
Maurice : Belle?
Belle : Papa?
[Grabs torch and kneels down to Maurice]
Maurice : H-how did you find me?
Belle : Oh, your hands are like ice. We need to get you out of here.
Maurice : Belle, I want you to leave this place.
Belle : Who's done this to you?
Maurice : No time to explain. You must go, now.
Belle : I won't leave you.
Beast : [the Beast Enters the room and Belle drops her torch in the puddle] What are you doing here?
Maurice : RUN BELLE!
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. Wait! Take me instead.
Beast : You? 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 : 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.
Beast : Done!
[Belle kneels to the floor, sobbing]
Maurice : No Belle! I'm old, I've lived my life!
[the Beast grabs Maurice and drags him off]
Belle : Wait! Wait!
[the doors slam behind Belle]
[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!
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] Hmm. Could you read it again?
Belle : Why here?
[Belle hands him the storybook]
Belle : Why don't you read it to me?
Beast : Uhh.
[he takes the book]
Beast : Alright.
[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 : Okay.
Beast : "Twooo"?
Belle : "Two".
Beast : "Two". I knew that.
[the Beast keeps reading]
Beast : "Two households"
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.
Beast : [growling] There's a stranger here!
