** 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"''.

!![[The Play]] * The Finale of the Papermill Playhouse's version goes like this: [[spoiler: After Quasimodo is able to drive them for a bit and attack the others, like in the movie, he sends down BOILING LEAD down onto the attackers below. He even says this with this following line:]] --> Quasimodo: [[spoiler: ''Saints and Monsters, show your power! Help me bring this raging shower, raining flames down...to the stones...'''BELOW!''']]

* 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.

* Frollo gets another one of his own awesome moments when instead of fleeing from the cascade of molten lead Quasi is pouring down on the besiegers, he [[VillainousVallor pushes onward]] under the archway and ''hacks a hole through the rest of the double doors'' with his broadsword after his troops have only partially breached it with the battering ram they made of the timber cross-beam the Hunchback threw at them.

** He then [[BuildingSwing swings down]] from the cathedral on the bell-pull rope, freakin' ''wall-run loops'' off the south tower and into the square, over the heads of the massive crowd, landing on the gallows, ''leaps onto the flaming bier'', rips the bonds off and grabs the unconscious Esmeralda, ''tears her still burning stake off the pyre and wallops the guards with it'' as they climb onto the gallows to stop him, then swings back and scales up the hundred feet walls to stand with [[CrucifiedHeroShot her limp]] [[PietaPlagiarism in his arms]] in front of the [[BackgroundHalo great rose window]], bellowing "SANCTUARY!" as the masses cheer.
