Bonjour! Bonjour! Bonjour! Nineties kids will never forget the first time they watched Belle walk into her poor provincial town in 18th-century France. Or her terrifying first introduction to Beast. Sacré bleu, let’s not forget Lumiere, Cogsworth, and Mrs. Pots. That’s because Beauty And The Beast has stood the test of time as an iconic animated feature that resulted in the Disney renaissance of the ’90s. Nabbing a Best Picture nomination at the 1992 Oscars, the film was composed by mastermind Alan Menken, the man behind other classics like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Mulan, and The Hunchback Of Notre Dame.

If you’re in the mood to go down memory lane we’ve rounded up the most memorable, enchanted, and hilarious quotes from Beauty And The Beast, so sit back, relax, as we proudly present…your epic Disney nostalgia. (And, uhhh, maybe block your high school social studies out and don’t think about the fact that Belle and Beast got together a decade or two before the French Revolution which probably saw them meet an unsavory death. Sacré bleu! )

“Be Our Guest” Lyrics

Be our guest

Be our guest Put our service to the test Tie your napkin ’round your neck, cherie And we provide the rest Soup du jour Hot hors d’oeuvres Why, we only live to serve Try the grey 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 Go on, unfold your menu Take a glance and then you’ll Be our guest Oui, our guest Be our guest Beef ragout Cheese souffle Pie and pudding “en flambe” 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 lift your glass You’ve won your own free pass To be out guest If you’re stressed It’s fine dining we suggest Be our guest Be our guest Be our guest


“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?” — Narrator

Mrs. Potts: What should we do, Master?

Beast: It doesn’t matter now. Just let them come.

“I’d like to thank you all for coming to my wedding. But first I’d better go in there and propose to the girl.” — Gaston

“Do I still have to sleep in the cupboard?” — Chip
