Removing a dead link. That link in ''Hunchback'' now leads to an Unavailable screen.
** The above page quote, of course, refers to the Disney version of ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame''. The context of the quotation ([[spoiler:trying to justify burning down a house with a family trapped inside]]. Scene viewable [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRwhaRrEJng#t=3m6s here.]]) is not the only example; Frollo [[spoiler:whipping the previous captain of the guard in front of the next one, apparently to show what happens to captains who disappoint Frollo]], is likely also an example of this.
