Ariel says: Flounder, hurry up!

Ariel says: Flounder, don't be such a guppy.

Flounder says: I'm not a guppy.

Ariel says: If I become human, I'll never be with my father or sisters again.

Ursula says: That's right. But you'll have your man. Life's full of tough choices, isn't it?

Ariel says: You're not getting cold fins now, are you?

Ariel says: I've never seen a human this close before.

Ariel says: [sung] I don't know when/I don't know how/But I know something's starting right now/Watch and you'll see/Some day I'll be/Part of your world.

Ariel says: [regarding King Triton, as Sebastian watches, unobserved] If only I could make him understand. I just don't see things the way he does. I just don't see how a world that makes such wonderful things could be bad. [She begins singing "Part of Your World."] Look at this stuff, isn't it neat? / Wouldn't ya think my collection's complete / Wouldn't you think I'm the girl / Girl who has everything / Look at this trove, treasures untold / How many wonders can one cavern hold? / Looking around you'd think / Sure, she's got everything / I've got gadgets and gizmos aplenty / I have whoozits and whatzis galore / You want thingamabobs? I've got twenty / But who cares? No big deal / I want more.

Ariel says: All right, I'm going inside. You can just stay here and watch for sharks.

Flounder says: Okay. Yeah, you go. I'll just stay and... What? Sharks? Ariel!

Scuttle says: I haven't seen this in years, this is *wonderful*!

Ariel says: What is it?

Scuttle says: A banded, bulbous snarfblatt.

Ariel says: Ohhh.

Jessie the Cowgirl says: This isn't a family it's a prison, you're a liar and a bully and I'd rather rot in this dumpster than go back!

Barbie says: Jessie's right! Authority should derive from the consent of the governed, not from the threat of force!

Barbie says: hi im tour guide barbie

Barbie says: I'm Tour Guide Barbie!

Sebastian says: Ariel what have you, how could you what is all this?

Ariel says: It's just my collection

Ariel says: It's just my collection.

Sebastian says: Oh (laughs) I see your collection, hmm. IF YOUR FATHER KNEW ABOUT THIS PLACE HE'D

Sebastian says: Oh (laughs) I see your collection, hmm. IF YOUR FATHER KNEW ABOUT THIS PLACE HE'D...

Flounder says: (interrupts Sebastian) You're not going to tell him are you?

Ariel says: Oh please Sebastian he would never understand

Ariel says: Oh please Sebastian he would never understand.

Sebastian says: Ariel, you're under a lot of pressure down here Come with me I'll take you home and et you something warm to drink

Sebastian says: Ariel, you're under a lot of pressure down here Come with me I'll take you home and et you something warm to drink.

Ariel says: What do you suppose? (swims out of grotto)

Sebastian says: Ariel? Ariel!

Ariel says: "Daddy, they are not barbarians!"

Ariel says: Daddy, they are not barbarians!

Ariel says: Daddy, I love him!

Ken says: Hi, I'm Ken.

Barbie says: Barbie...

Flounder says: I...I'm not sure we should be here Ariel.

Ariel says: Oh don't be a guppy

Ariel says: Oh don't be a guppy.

Barbie says: "Have we met before?"

Barbie says: Have we met before?

Ken says: "No, I would have remembered."

Ken says: No, I would have remembered.

Ariel says: (last lines) I love you, Daddy?.

Ariel says: [last lines] I love you, Daddy.

Barbie says: And this is the Buzz Lightyear aisle. Back in 1995, short-sighted retailers did not order enough dolls to meet demand.
