** It's also possible that she feared the other gypsies might resent her as Frollo was persecuting them to get to her. And again they might not suspect Phoebus's HeelFaceTurn to be genuine, and thus kill him as an attempt to get back at Frollo. Quasimodo was the only one she knew who would definitely help her. ** And she might not have wanted to risk the possibility of Phoebus turning back heel and revealing the Court of Miracles to Frollo as a deal.

Added DiffLines:
** I assumed the reason Frollo didn't want him to go out in public was fear of them finding out ''why'' he's in the cathedral in the first place. Think about it: no one knows that Frollo visits him personally. Anyone just knows that he visits the church. But if Quasi was outside he might mention Frollo as his master. Thus people might find out Frollo's sin of murdering the child's mother, or worse - assume he's Frollo's illegitimate son. But of course it'd be impossible to keep him completely secret forever. People in the church might catch a glimpse or hear gossip, thus starting the legend.

** I always assumed she died from hitting her head off the stone. She's bound to have been holding onto the baby pretty tight, so it'd take a strong blow to separate them.

** If I recall correctly, she fell backwards, head-first, into the stone. More than likely it fractured her skull and she died from the brain hemorrhage.

* How does a single kick to the face kill Quasimodo's mother?

** Good question. I haven't seen the movie in ''decades'', but here's what I suspect: it was a slip of the tongue; she wasn't intentionally trying to call Quasimodo a 'creature'. Remember, she's living in an era where anyone outside what's considered 'normal' is considered not-human/a freak. To them, Quasi was this malformed freak created by Satan/a freak who deserved his deformity, an inhuman monster, and that was the idea for deformed people at the time. No doubt this would've been ingrained in her mind growing up. So here she is, standing over one such person, in the heat of the moment trying to defend him and out slips 'creature'. It was an honest mistake on her part.

* One thing that's bothered me as far as continuity goes (and it probably would be just chalked up to ContinuityError), but when Phoebus escapes from Frollo's guards, he's struck in the shoulder with an arrow. Now, as he's riding down the bridge, he's struck from behind, yet later when Esmeralda and another gypsy bring him to the Cathedral for hiding and she tends to his wound, he's wounded in the front. Wut?

** As noted in his song, Frollo ultimately hates everyone so that he can better feel 'superior' to them. He's the kind of man who needs someone to oppress, if it wasn't gypsies it would be some other unpopular underclass.

** She couldn't be at all certain that the gypsies at the Court of Miracles would take kindly to Phoebus; they would see him as one of 'Frollo's men' who was responsible for their persecution. Just her word that he had done a heel-face turn likely wouldn't be enough to convince them to trust him, they might well suspect him of being a spy and be reluctant to take care of him. Given the friendship she had established with Quasimodo, she relied on him to do her a favour and look after him.
