** Oil paint. Taking a watercolor painting aboard a ship would be kind of dumb, and all of her treasures are flotsam.

** At least one of them probably got blown off in the explosion, given that his foot was caught in the crumbling deck of the ship before the powder caught fire. Actually, I've just checked, and he has them on. However, his pants are also intact. By the time he's on the beach (Neptune knows how she dragged him a solid 10 feet onto the beach) not only is he barefoot but the bottoms of his pantlegs are completely shredded. Clearly something happened on the way. Perhaps sharp rocks or curious small sharks.

Added DiffLines:

* Just curious though, is Sebastian just being dramatic about "I'll stay in one piece" or is his fear for real?

*** Divorce? From a sea witch with magical powers that he isn't even aware of? Unlikely. If Ursula wanted to keep Eric's kingdom, she wouldn't have let things like laws and free will get in the way. And given Eric's heroic nature, I can see her tempting him with all sorts of things in order to rescue or reunite with Ariel, all printed on a nice unbreakable contract.

to:

** There is an idea on the fridge page that Ariel took them off out of curiosity. As we see later when she gains a pair of her own, she finds toes fascinating. A bit creepy perhaps, but she is a rebellious, hormonal and human-obsessed sixteen-year-old nursing her crush, so its not that unlikely that she might go for a little peek.

** The last time Triton flew off the handle and used the trident to solve his problems is what landed them all in this mess in the first place. He was probably trying not to do something rash in case he messed things up for Ariel again.




to:

** Ursula is powerful enough to transform mermaids into humans and other such things. So she's clearly got the power to magic up a contract that even the King of Atlantica can't overwrite.




to:

** And let's not forget that Ariel regularly goes up to the surface. So she at least is familiar with the changing temperature between sea and air.

to:

** We never saw the full text of the contract, so it's possible that her voice being returned was a clause. During "Kiss the Girl," Sebastian sings "And she won't say a word, until you kiss the girl!" The characters seem to be operating on the assumption that she'll get her voice back, at least.

to:

** Have Flotsam and Jetsam get her to the surface. She just didn't need to use them because Sebastian and Flounder were there.

** The second movie takes place at least thirteen years after the end of the first one, and we see Ariel using a comb to brush Melody's hair in an earlier scene. Clearly, Ariel figured things out, told Scuttle what the real name and purpose of a "dinglehopper" was, and he spread the word far and wide to every creature in the seven seas!
