*** ''Although'' it's clear that he's playing to the crowd in that moment (and, come on, [[BlackComedy it was quite a funny quip]]). Also consider the fact that they don't know yet about Phoebus' FaceHeelTurn and that Quasimodo is going against Frollo's orders. As far as they're concerned, they've just caught two of Frollo's closest henchmen. Now, if this was the ''novel's'' version of Clopin...

* Quasimodo passes out while hanging from Esmeralda's hand, in a universe where dangling by one's arms is apparently quite easy. So why didn't Quasi last as long as the standard Disney character in the same position? His kyphosis. The abnormal thoracic curve responsible for his hunch also reduces his chest cavity greatly (this is one of the primary health issues suffered by kyphosis patients). While Quasi does have a lot of strength and stamina after years of ringing the bells, he still cannot withstand as long periods suspended by his arms as other characters can, due to the fact that his smaller lungs cause him to asphyxiate faster.

**** Yes and no. There was, at the time, a notable difference between the priests of the Church itself, especially in areas where its influence was strong, and the barely-converted ex-pagan populace, many of whom still practiced 'Christian folk magic' based on pre-Christian beliefs.

** Earlier, upon meeting the goat, Hugo un-freezes himself and makes a kissy face at the goat.
*** Also, in the -gag- sequel, Hugo and Djali (the goat) evidently get together during the Festival of Love.

** Don't worry, he's fine. At the very end of the movie when Phoebus and Esmeralda emerge from the church, you can see him standing in the large crowd. He most likely retired or passed away peacefully (guy was at least in his late 70s during the film's events) between movies. I actually don't know if Archdeacons are allowed to retire, but he's definitely alive and well by the end.

* Evil man or not, Frollo's title of "Minister of Justice" as well as the fact that he had guards and some authority over Paris meant that he was a high-ranking official of the King of France. King who was probably elsewhere, fighting the war that Phoebus came back from at the beginning of the movie. Now, imagine how the King will react when he will learn that the population of the city rebelled against one of his officials. Odds are that, since he doesn't know the full extent of what happened, the King will think that the town rebelled against his authority (something which happened several times with towns that had walls in the Middle Ages). Let's hope Phoebus can explain everything. If not, the citizens of Paris will have a ''nasty'' surprise when the royal armies will show up to crush the supposed rebellion.

** The [[OminousLatinChanting Ominous Latin Chanting]] during Hellfire is from the Confiteor, which is [[BilingualBonus the Catholic confessional prayer]]. The lines sung by the priests at the beginning address God, Mary, the saints, and so forth. The counterpoint lines building to the main motif confess that one has sinned in thought, word, and deed. At this point, Frollo has sinned in though, which he does admit, and is presently sinning in word. The "Mea Culpa" is where [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope the song goes completely opposite from the prayer instead of diverging as it had been]]. Frollo blames Esmeralda for his past sins instead of his humanity, denies that he has actually sinned, blames God for making it that sin could taint him, declares that his lust is not sinful, and demands that, instead of admitting that he is impure, that Esmeralda should be punished, be it damnation or him having his way with her without penalty on his soul. When you add the fact that Frollo is "praying" to Mary directly, he is not only spitting in God's face, but he's essentially saying to Mary "Everything your son taught is bull, so the rules don't apply to me."

* If we buy the claim that the cathedral of Notre Dame is [[GeniusLoci genuinely sentient]], it's telling to look at both occasions where the building itself comes to live. First all the statues of Notre Dame's facade menacingly stare at Frollo when the judge is ready to throw a baby Quasimodo into a well after the mother asked for Sanctuary; secondly a gargoyle comes to life as Frollo tries to kill Quasimodo and Esmeralda on the cathedral's ground. Each time Frollo is about to cross the MoralEventHorizon: Frollo disobeys the Sanctuary rule which stipulates that all person within the cathedral shall not be harmed. The cathedral itself decides to intervene when someone is about to break the Sanctuary rule! Sanctuary is SeriousBusiness for Notre Dame!

* Unless I missed it, I didn't see anyone mention this. I was watching the movie on Creator/ABCFamily when the scene where Frollo is searching all of Paris for Esmeralda comes up. Here is how it's Fridge Brilliance if you didn't grow up in a religious house. Now depending on who tells it, the number can change, but Frollo offers twenty pieces of Silver for Esmeralda. Now think about it; Who else was offered Silver in exchange for the life of another innocent human?

Even more tellingly, the most commonly given number is 30 pieces of silver; Frollo offers ten silver to the first group, and twenty to the next.
