* [[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)

* 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.

** Even earlier during the Topsy Turvy song, Quasimodo accidentally tumbles into Esmeralda's tent. Though at first she sounds annoyed, due to having accidentally torn down the curtain that had been covering her, she quickly becomes concerned if he's OK since he fell to the floor. He simply attempts to leave the room, but she insists on checking if he's OK, eventually seeing his face (which she assumes is a mask), and only reacting with relief that he isn't hurt before warning Quasimodo to be more careful.

* During "Top of the World" Esmeralda looks down at Paris from Notre Dame's highest tower, but quickly steps back from the edge of the balcony because of her fear of heights. Quasimodo then proceeds to show her tricks and to balance on the balustrades, even joking a bit by pretending to stumble. At first, Esmeralda is scared for him, but he manages to put her at ease to the point that she even sits on the balustrade while stretching out her arms. It shows how caring Quasimodo is and that he is actually pretty in tune with other peoples emotions despite having almost never interacted with anyone besides Frollo.

** Just before that, when some of the people are attacking Quasi. Phoebus looks at the attackers disgusted and asks Frollo if he should step in and put a stop to it.

* The scene with the Archdeacon stopping Frollo from drowning Quasimodo. First off, the way he handled the situation by telling him that God had just seen him murder an innocent woman and will pay the price with his eternal soul is a [[Awesome/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Crowning Moment of Awesome]]. Second, it shows what a compassionate man he is in contrast to Frollo, caring for a stranger and her infant. Plus, it looked like he was going to bury her body instead of leaving it on the steps.
