** And this sounds like heavy YMMV as plenty of people find the Prince to be stunning. It probably has more to do with his design being more ''bland'' than it was as the Beast, not ''ugly.''

** To add to the horror, asylums in those days were often... pretty unpleasant, to put it mildly. Maurice would have been trapped there for possibly the rest of his days had Belle not proved him to be telling the truth about the Beast. And Gaston almost certainly knew this. As if his aggressive advances on Belle weren't enough, for him to convince Monsieur D'arque to commit someone who was simply a bit eccentric is needlessly cruel and malicious. Gaston is willing to stoop incredibly low in order to get what he wants. This is even {{LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the stage adaptation with the extra verse added to the end of Gaston's musical number:

-->'''Le Fou''': Just as long as you get what you want in the end

* During the "Gaston" number, the scene where he's playing chess with the other guy is supposed to be a hilarious scene of him just rage quitting due to a loss, but apparently his opponent moved his bishop as if it was a knight piece, so Gaston's anger is actually justified according to this clip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4VlCFEJsRM

** This is actually part of the Beast's CharacterDevelopment in Disney's part in their retelling of the story. In the original fairy tale, the Beast lets her go on the condition that she comes back in a week. Also, she only was allowed to leave solely because she feels homesick, unlike the Disney version where her father is actually in mortal danger (thus saving the Beast being taken over by his moral conscience since he is not setting her free at the cost of remaining cursed for eternity). While the Beast did not request that she goo back to the castle, she still had to return as she inadvertently imperiled the life of the Beast by revealing his existence to the villagers, making them decide to lynch him at Gaston's prodding (In the original, she returned to him after feeling guilty of not keeping her part of the bargain and seeing him dying of heartbreak and loneliness).

* Considering the personalities of the three main servants of the castle, the objects they have been transformed into make a lot of sense. Cogsworth is a stickler for rules and schedules, so he would become something as precise and [[ButtMonkey in need of]] [[StealthPun winding up]] as a clock. Lumiere is passionate about romance (in regards to both [[ReallyGetsAround himself]] and [[ShipperOnDeck between Belle and the Beast]]), and fire is often associated with passion, with candles especially as the centrepiece of romantic dinners. Lastly, Mrs. Potts is [[TeamMom motherly to the Beast, Belle and the other servants]], always at hand to calm and reassure those in despair or in rage. Especially in her actresses' native Britain, [[SpotOfTea what is more associated with helping to calm and relax than almost any other meal?]]

* Maurice is out in the cold for at least three or four days searching for Belle, and it's not unlikely that he was out for longer. And [=Lefou=] stands in the same spot while fall turns to winter. Think about that one a while.

** Imagine Maurice's fate of collapsing in the woods in exhaustion and hunger and freezing to death if Belle hadn't requested to see him in the magic mirror and got there in time when she did.

* Imagine the outcome for Belle in the forest with the wolfs attacking her if the Beast hadn't come when he did.
** What about when the wolves attack Maurice? Imagine his fate if he hadn't reached the castle in time when the wolves came upon him and he slammed the gate.
