** As mentioned on a few other pages, the musical, rather than simply having the servants be turned into walking, talking household knickknacks, instead sees them slowly and irreversibly transforming into inanimate objects (which will either kill them or leave them as humans stuck in unmoving, unfeeling forms forever). Here, then, Mrs. Potts is forced to admit to her only son that Belle may not break the curse in time. She's essentially a mother telling her child that he, herself, and all of his friends are going to die, and they're completely powerless to stop it, as they can't force the Beast to genuinely love someone. It's a quiet moment, but it stings.

** Also, Cogsworth, who was the most skeptical one from the start, was glad to see his master happy and was eager for things to back to normal. Until Beast lets her go. Later he complains to the others that he ''knew'' they shouldn't have gotten their hopes up.

* It's pretty disheatening to see Lumiere, who has been described as a lighthearted character who almost always has a smile on his face and holds onto hope the longest the curse would be broken, wonder if it ''might have been better if Belle never shown up'' after the Beast lets her go.

*** He could've just forgotten about him since Gaston treated Lefou like crap. Despite trying to help him realise Gaston had happiness and friends, Lefou was probably disgusted when he realised Gaston wanted to kill such an innocent beast, and thus Lefou learnt his mistake of being 'evil'. Then again, nobody knows if that really happened, so that can be up to the viewer's interpretation.

* This troper found the transformation scene to have one tearjerker tucked in with all the happiness and triumph: Look at Prince Adam's eyes. Ignore the deer-in-the-headlights look. Look at his eyes - or more specifically, at the very noticable bags under his eyes, even when he's got Mrs. Potts, Lumiere, and Cogsworth swept up in a big group hug. You can't write this off as Adam simply being exhausted from being dead not two seconds before: The bags are still there in the ballroom scene that follows. If that isn't the single subtlest and most heartbreaking way to tell the viewer he's been through hell and back and is very likely ''still carrying a great many mental scars from it'', this troper doesn't know what is...

* After that, the InMemoriam to [[CriticalExistenceFailure Howard Ashman]], the lyricist for the film who worked with AlanMenken for several other films of the Disney Renaissance, and who died before it was released. "To our friend Howard, who gave a mermaid her voice and a beast his soul, we will be forever grateful."

*** While the scene of Cogsworth of too embarrassed to show the fact he now has a windup key on his back and backs away so nobody can see it in the stage show is PlayedForLaughs, it's a sobering reminder of what's coming their way.
