Belle (Beauty and the Beast)

Belle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' animated feature film Beauty and the Beast (1991). Originally voiced by American actress and singer Paige O'Hara, Belle is the non-conforming daughter of an inventor who yearns to abandon her predictable village life in return for adventure. When her father Maurice is imprisoned by a cold-hearted beast, Belle offers him her own freedom in exchange for her father's, and eventually learns to love the Beast despite his unsightly outward appearance.

She was one of the few Disney princesses who wasn't looking for a prince- merely adventure- although she did get one in the end!

"Bonjour" [Belle] Little town it's a quiet village. Everyday like the one before. Little town full of little people, waking up to say. [Man #1] Bonjour! [Man #2] Bonjour! [Woman #1] Bonjour! [Man #3] Bonjour! [Man #4] Bonjour! [Belle] There goes the baker with his tray like always. The same old bread and rolls to sell. Every morning just the same since the morning that we came, To this poor provincial town. [Baker] Good Morning Belle! [Belle] G'morning Monsieur! [Baker] Where you off to? [Belle] The book shop... I just finished the most wonderful story, About a beanstalk and an ogre and an... [Baker] That's nice. Marie! The baguettes! Hurry up! [Group of Women] Look there she goes that girl is strange no question. Dazed and distracted, can't you tell? [Woman #1] Never part of any crowd. [Man #3] Cuz her heads up on some cloud. [Villagers] No denying she's a funny girl that Belle. [Man #1] Bonjour! [Woman #1] Good day! [Man #1] How is your family? [Woman #1] Bonjour! [Man #4] Good day! [Woman #1] How is your wife?

[Book Shop Clerk] Well if you like it all that much, it's yours. [Belle] But sir! [Book Shop Clerk] I insist. [Belle] Well thank you! Thank you very much! [Group Of Men] Look there she goes that girl is so peculiar. I wonder if she's feeling well. [Group Of Women] With a dreamy far off look. [Group Of Men] And her nose stuck in a book. [Villigers] What a puzzle to the rest of us, is Belle. [Belle] Oh! Isn't this amazing? It's my favorite because you'll see. Here's where she meets Prince Charming. But she won't discover that it's him till chapter three. [Woman #3] Now It's no wonder that her name means beauty, her looks have got no parallel. [Man #1] But behind that fair facade, I'm afraid she's rather odd. Very different from the rest of us. [Villigers] She's nothing like the rest of us. Yes different from the rest of us is Belle. [Lafue] Wow! You didn't miss a shot Gaston! You're the greatest hunter in the whole world. [Gaston] I know. [Lafue] No beast alive stands a chance against you. And no girl for that matter.

[Gaston] The most beautiful girl in town. That makes her the best! And don't I deserve the best!? [Lafue] Well of course, I mean you do, I mean... [Gaston] Right from the moment when I met her, saw her, I said she's gorgeous and I fell...Here in town, there is only she, who is as beautiful as me. So I'm making plans to woo and marry Belle. [Gaston Groupies] Look there he goes, isn't he dreamy? Monsieur Gaston, oh he's so cute! Be still my heart, I'm hardly breathing. He's such a tall, dark, strong and handsome brute. [Woman #1] Bonjour! [Gaston] Pardon [Belle] Good day [Woman #2] Mais oui! [Woman #3] You call this bacon? [Woman #4] What lovely grapes! [Man #1] Some cheese [Woman #5] Ten yards! [Man #1] one pound [Gaston] 'scuse me! [Cheese Merchant] I'll get the knife [Gaston] Please let me through! [Woman #6] This bread - [Woman #7] Those fish - [Woman #6] it's stale! [Woman #7] they smell! [Men] Madame's mistaken. [Women] Well, maybe so [Townsfolk] Good morning! Oh, good morning! [Belle] There must be more than this provincial life! [Gaston] Just watch, I'm going to make Belle my wife! [Townsfolk] Look there she goes The girl is strange but special A most peculiar mad'moiselle!

"Something There" Belle: There's something sweet And almost kind But he was mean and he was coarse and unrefined But now he's dear, and so unsure I wonder why I didn't see it there before Mme. De La Grande Bouche: Come along dearie. Let's get you off those wet things. Beast: 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 Belle, I have something to show you. But first, you have to close your eyes. It's a surprise! Belle: May I open them? Beast: Alright, alright. Now! Belle: I can't believe it! I've never seen so many books in my whole life! Beast: You like it? Belle: It's wonderful! Beast: It's yours! Belle: New and a bit alarming Who'd have ever thought that this could be? True that he's no Prince Charming But there's something in him that I simply didn't see Belle: Oh, this is one of my favorites! It's "King Arthur." Have you ever read it? Beast: No. Belle: You don't know what you're missing. I'd love to read this again. can read this first. Beast: No, that's alright Belle: No, really, you read it Beast: Oh, No, you... Belle: No, you Beast: No! I can't... Belle: You never learn to read? Beast: Only a little, and long ago Belle: Well, it just so happens that this is the perfect book to read aloud. Come here, sit by me Lumiere: Well, who'd have thought? Mrs Potts: Well, bless my soul Cogsworth: Well, who'd have known? Mrs Potts: Well, who indeed? Lumiere: And who'd have guessed they'd come together on their own? Mrs Potts: It's so peculiar. Wait and see Lumiere and Cogsworth: We'll wait and see All three: A few days more There may be something there that wasn't there before Cogsworth: Perhaps there's something there That wasn't there before Chip: What? Mrs Potts: There may be something there that wasn't there before Chip: What's there, Mama? Mrs Potts: Ssh. I'll tell you when you're older. Come along now. Let's give them some privacy... Chip: Mama? Mrs Potts: Yes, Chip Chip: Will I ever get to be a boy again? Mrs Potts: I hope so Chip: When will I know? Mrs Potts: Soon. If it's to be. It will be very soon now. Come along, son. Belle: Knowing now, that this was indeed the legendary sword called "Excalibur," Arthur tried to pull it from the stone. He tried once to no avail. He tried a second time, but still, he could not pull it out. Then, for the third time, Arthur drew forth the sword... Beast: So that must mean he's the king! Belle: Wait and see Beast: I never knew books could do that Belle: Do what? Beast: Take me away from this place, make me forget for a little while Belle: Forget? Beast: Who I...What I am... Belle: We have something in common, you know Beast: What is that? Belle: In the town where I come from, the people think I'm odd Beast: You? Belle: So, I know how it feels to be...different. And I know how lonely that can be For the third time, Arthur drew forth the sword, and there arose from the people a great shout. Arthur is king. Beast: I told you so...
