* After Phoebus refuses to burn down a brothel in the hunt for Esmeralda, Frollo has him arrested. Cue Esmeralda throwing of her disguise and starting a swordfight with the soldiers, which is of course her MOA. But then she falls and Frollo moves to stab her, only to have Phoebus catch the dagger with his body.

*** It's not just the chains that Quasimodo breaks, but the ''pillars they're bound to''. The gargoyles were right--he is stronger than stone.

* The ''entire'' choir whispering ''"Yes, you do."'' to Quasimodo as Frollo insisted that the hunchback didn't truly want to hurt him. Goosebumps-inducing.

** Then the cathedral itself gets one with all the statues looking down at Frollo, [[GodIsGood as if God is saying]] "Yeah, throw that baby down the well, you son of a bitch, and see how pissed I get."

** Then the cathedral itself gets one with all the statues looking down at Frollo, [[GodIsGood as if God is saying]] "Yeah, throw that baby down the well, you son of a bitch, and see how pissed I get."" Frollo's [[OhCrap wary and fearful expression]] as he feels the stone eyes of the statues upon him just seals the deal.
-->''"And for one time in his life of power and control, Frollo felt a twinge of fear for his immortal soul"''.

* Seriously, the fact that in a ''Disney movie'' we have the villain attempting to shank his adopted son in the back with ''a foot-long mercy dagger'' only for our hero to spin round and physically confront his foster father by grabbing his wrist at the last second. The pair struggle, Frollo pushing the stiletto inch by inch closer to Quasi's face; who is too traumatized at the assault to fight back against his guardian until... He hurls that Satanic shit bodily away and disarms him! Quasimodo then raises said weapon over his attacker's now trembling form and gives him the mother of all CallingTheOldManOut speeches. Frollo has treated him like garbage for twenty years, to the point where Quasimodo just weakly obeys his will. This is essentially when Quasimodo is saying "screw you, I'm not listening to you anymore" and finally stands up for himself (although breaking out of the cathedral and saving Esmeralda was definitely the first massive step in the right direction).

** The [[OhCrap look on Frollo's face]] as he realizes that a) he no longer has any influence over Quasimodo, who is b) less than half his age, c) strong enough to break his spine like kindling and oh yeah, d) ''really pissed off'' right now makes it even more satisfying. All Frollo can do is feebly stammer "Now - now, listen to me, Quasimodo..." Frollo really was a coward and now [[TheDogBitesBack all the abuse Frollo perpetrated on this deformed boy has come back to bite him in the ass]].

** "'STOP!' cried the Archdeacon!"



*** Considering by this point in the movie that Frollo has already condemned three people to torture and eventual death and killed an innocent woman ''on the steps of a cathedral,'' it's wise not to push [[{{God}} The Man Upstairs]] any further. That was the first and only time in his life that Frollo ever considered the morality of his own actions.



*** All the Archdeacon moments take a even more impressive gloss when you learn that in the original book Frollo ''is'' the Archdeacon, meaning that the Disney film can be said to use two characters to illustrate the internal debates that Frollo has, and therefore Frollo casting the Archdeacon down is equivalent to him discarding pretense of morality and what good might still remain in his own soul in order to enact his desires.
