*** As Quasi's about to throw Frollo off the cathedral, we get this, which is both this and NightmareFuel:
-->'''Frollo:''' You don't want to hurt me!\\
'''Chorus:''' ''[[TheDogBitesBack Yes you do.]]''

* When Quasi thinks Esmeralda is dead, the look on his face is just so heartbreakingly ''sad''.

* When Quasi thinks Esmeralda is dead, the look on his face is just so heartbreakingly ''sad''. And then he holds her in his arms and breaks down sobbing, while an offscreen children's chorus sings the melody of "Someday," [[DarkReprise just as they did at the moment when Esmeralda first showed him compassion at the pillory wheel.]]

* While chained to the cathedral and ForcedToWatch Esmeralda's execution, Quasimodo tells the gargoyles to GetOut in song form since they're "Made of Stone" and every time he takes their suggestions he gets in trouble. They finally agree with him and turn to stone

** The entirety of "Made of Stone," for that matter is a powerfully heartbreaking song in its own right. Quasimodo has reached his DespairEventHorizon and in his sorrow over his part in the upcoming demise of Esmeralda, his only true friend, he chooses to break off ties with his sanity and with the rest of humanity, choosing to live a life void of emotion and feeling as if he too where "Made of Stone"

* Phoebus's song in the USA production, Rest and Recreation. While it starts off fine, [[https://youtu.be/7x_CgJMu19c?t=50s the interlude]] offers something different - Phoebus is still haunted by his "four years at the front", and briefly imagines all those who died at his side

The MoodWhiplash back to the merry tune afterwards doesn't help at all!

** The deleted song "In a Place of Miracles" is included in the show, but it's been reworked to be a much more bittersweet number. In the original scene, Esmeralda and Phoebus confess their love for one another, and while Quasimodo is heartbroken at first, he learns to accept their love after Phoebus and the others treat him with acceptance and kindness. In the show, he doesn't take it well at ''all'', and laments on how everyone has found their "place of miracles" except him (the DarkReprise of "Heaven's Light" is also worked into the song, making Quasi's situation even more tragic).

* When the USA production played at the Papermill Playhouse, the already gutwrenching finale was slightly altered to tie in with [[spoiler:the original ending from the novel. After Quasi removes his "ugly" makeup, he faces the audience and tells them that years later, two skeletons were found in the crypts of Paris, one of a hunchbacked man and the other of a woman cradled in his arms. After someone tried removing the remains, they crumbled into dust]].

** When Clopin and the gypsies join in, they sing about their hopes of finding a place of miracles of their own, as in a place where their kind is accepted, not scorned. Clopin himself really hammers the point home.
-->'''Clopin''': Can there be a country kinder to our race?
** The number ends with Esmeralda, Phoebus, Clopin, and the other gypsies standing side by side and hand-in-hand, while a lonely Quasi watches from above. It's just one big bittersweet image.
** And of course, what happens immediately after the song? [[spoiler:Frollo and his men invade the Court and take Esmeralda to her death]].

* [[spoiler:"Danse Mon Esmeralda" from the French rock opera version. Quasimodo goes into the catacombs to find Esmeralda's body and sings a very heartbreaking song about how much he loves her and that he will gladly stay with her body until he dies. IN the background are dancers on wires with them slowly working their way up to a light, possibly signifying that Esmeralda has gone to heaven.]]
