* It may seem a bit out of character for Frollo to include "forgiveness" in Quasimodo's religious alphabet, but as Victor pointed out in the previous scene: It's better to beg forgiveness than to ask permission. It's likely Frollo didn't include it at all, and after [[FreudianSlip accidentally saying "Festival"]], Quasimodo was both trying to divert Frollo from what he had said and ask forgiveness for saying it.

* The opening musical number "The Bells Of Notre Dame" starts with a line sayings its the story of a monster. While it seems to be referring to the mysterious bell ringer, it quickly becomes obvious that Frollo is the real monster in the story.

to:

* When Frollo smashes the insect nest as an euphemism for his solution to the "Gypsy problem", he uses the stone tablet upside down and leaves it that to attend the Festival. Not only is it indicative of Frollo's [[KnightTemplar twisted sense of justice]], but also disregard for the laws since its done in the Palace of Justice.

** Green eyes also symbolize magic or "witchcraft" in Esmeralda's case.

** Green eyes also symbolize magic or "witchcraft" in Esmeralda's case."witchcraft," which fits with Frollo's view of her.



* When Quasimodo [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy gives up Esmeralda]], he shows what many churches call "[[TheFourLoves Agape]]", or unconditional love. This truly underscores his CharacterDevelopment, from a childlike worship of her which manifests in the form of an innocent EntitledToHaveYou complex, to truly respecting and understanding her.

** What's also shown in this is that Quasimodo is strong enough to shake the entire cathederal, making the bells ring.

* The climax gets Fridge-[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] when you realize [[spoiler: it mirrors the prologue. In the beginning, Frollo tries to drown baby Quasimodo and justifies this by saying "This is an ''unholy demon''." In the climax, he also declares Esmeralda an "unholy demon".]]

Both he and Esmeralda were condemned by Frollo to die, but were [[BigDamnHeroes rescued]].]]

** Unwittingly, this makes for an In-Universe RedHerring for Quasimodo: he wouldn't suspect being related to gypsies, given he doesn't have their dark skin and deep black hair.

* Remember when Quasimodo dropped a large rock at a ladder during the soldiers’ attempted raid on the cathedral? When the ladder broke, two soldiers fell down. How likely is it that those two soldiers died from the fall?

** The book itself described Quasimodo as being incredibly strong from ringing the bells for years.



* Frollo saw nothing wrong with drowning a baby, but he also didn't stop to think that a dead thing in the well would ''poison'' anyone who drank from it. If the Archdeacon hadn't caught him, not only would he have killed an infant, he probably would have killed half the people that drank from the well -- which would have been a lot of people going into the cathedral, seeing as the two are next to each other. Not only is Frollo a douche, he's an idiot.
** He was probably just going to hold Quasimodo under the water until he drowned and then bury him behind the church or something. Okay, that really isn't any better.
** This is long before germ theory or any real idea of how disease and sickness spread. Bad odors, sin, or witchcraft were more likely to be thought of as the culprit than anything else. Frollo likely would have said that it was because of the Roma and/or that everyone that sickened deserved it because they were sinful.
** ^^Right. At the time, no one considered germs or corpses the source of sickness, they associated illness with miasmas (or bad smells) or witchcraft. If everyone suddenly got sick, Frollo absolutely could have blame dit on the Roma-germ theory wasn't popularized by John Snow (not the GoT character, the epidemiologist) for centuries in New York.

* [[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming Quasimodo's mother didn't just try to save him]]- she ''[[MamaBear did]]''. Think about it- why was the Archdeacon there so fast and so conveniently in the middle of the night? Simple. [[{{Tearjerker}} Because he was woken up by Quasi's mother pounding on the door outside, begging for sanctuary.]]

* ''Assuming'' the gargoyles are figments of Quasimodo's imagination, Laverne may be LeaningOnTheFourthWall by pointing out that if 20 years of talking with Victor and Hugo hasn't made him sick by now nothing will. Anyone else in Quasimodo's position would've lost their sanity between the isolation, and Frollo's condescension and strict rules. But as Laverne points out, he's still a pretty sound mind despite his loneliness.

Added DiffLines:

* Adhering to the movie's moral about looking beneath the surface, Quasimodo and Phoebus' rocky friendship does bring it home. Instead of treating Quasimodo with pity just because he looks pitiful, he and Phoebus have a VitriolicBestBuds dynamic going on, as though they were equals. That's because they ''are'' equals, despite their different appearances.
