* Right after Frollo's fall into the flames and chaos, it seems that Quasimodo will follow the same fate when Esmeralda looses her grip on him, but luckily Phoebus grabs him in time and saves him. How does Quasi thank him? With a smile, and then a hug. Cue Phoebus patting Quasi's back, and smiling as well.

* [[KnightInShiningArmor Phoebus's]] [[EstablishingCharacterMoment introduction.]] Esmerelda has earned some coin through her dancing, but some thuggish guards think she is a thief. Phoebus knows she's innocent (after all, he paid for her dance). After she escapes and runs, Phoebus blocks their way with his horse so she can escape. When he notices Esmerelda dropped some of her earnings in her flight, he picks them up and gives them to a beggar woman (who happens to be Esmerelda in disguise).

Added DiffLines:

* In this version of "Bells of Notre Dame", we see the relationship between Claude Frollo (much closer to the TragicVillain he was in the book) and his brother Jehan, and near the beginning it's actually really sweet. In at least one production, they even share a hug which leads to the both hilarious and adorable image of Jehan hoisting his older brother into the air. Too bad it goes sour very quickly...

!!The Disney sequel:
* For all of its flaws the sequel does have its own genuinely heartwarming moments, like Quasimodo's relationship with Zephyr and Madellaine admitting her love for him.
** Bonus points for the MeaningfulEcho Madellaine uses to convince Quasimodo that she's on his side and wants to help: "There's more to me...", a phrase that's as true about him as it is about her.

** So while some people complain that Quasi DidNotGetTheGirl, in a way, with her devotion to her friend placing his life above her own, which come on if that isn't done out of a form love then what is, he [[FridgeLogic kind of did]] except in a way it's even better, Quasi got a life-long friend in the end.

** Plus add in this little fact as well: After rewatching it, the little girl? She was at the beginning of the movie! She knows about Quasimodo's mother's death from Frollo and is likely seeing him for the first time, afraid of them from the Feast of Fools incident. So she was the one who helped Quasimodo get over his fear and show him that they're not so bad. Even adding that she and Clopin watch him go off together, with him playing around with one of the hand puppets from the beginning of hte film rom when he told Quasimodo's story.

Added DiffLines:

* The finale "Olim" reprise is sung by a solo chorus soprano, explicitly referred to as Florika (aka Quasimodo's mother). The implication being that even a so-called "heathen" can make it into heaven through HeroicSacrifice and the power of love. TakeThat Frollo!

* Sort of a meta example, but Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menken (the songwriters of the movie) created a song that had to be cut from the movie. The song was a love song between Phoebus and Esmeralda and also gave focus to Quasi coming to terms with his ugliness and his slim chances on having Esmeralda. It was a sweet song that unfortunately had to be cut from the film. Howard Asmnan was personally heartbroken that it was cut. But now the song has been reworked in the Broadway musical version. The lyrics have been reworked to include all of the gypsies and focuses more on the tragedy that Quasi will be alone forever, but in the end, it's real sweet that such a beautiful song has been able to end up in the musical after all.
