* In the USA production of "Someday", Esmeralda, who had spent the whole musical being TheDeterminator, and had just refused Frollo's deal to spare her, [[TearsOfFear breaks down]] when the imminence of her death begins to sink in. Phoebus [[CooldownHug comforts her]] and they sing the rest of the song in each other's arms.

*** Worse still, Phoebus is so appalled that he insists he be granted permission to stop this spectacle, and Frollo snidely refuses so that Quasi "is taught a lesson".

* In the USA production, the death of ''Frollo'', of all people, is actually quite tragic, due to him being a much more sympathetic and fatherly character. After Quasimodo hurls him to his death, he stares at his master's (offstage) body on the ground and quietly states "There lies...all that I have ever loved..." before breaking down completely.

* Quasimodo's flogging in the 1997 version is extremely upsetting, as unlike the other versions, he ''doesn't'' deserve it. While in the other movies he genuinely attempt to kidnap Esmeralda, the only reason he was present at the scene here is because he saw Frollo pay two men to kidnap her, and was fighting them off - the soldiers happened to appear just as he had sent them packing and assumed that he was the culprit, completely ignoring Gringoire when he told them that Quasimodo wasn't at fault.

* In the 1939 film, Esmeralda is pardoned, but Quasimodo sees her kissing with Gringoire, and he asks the gargoyles why isn't he made of stone.

** To drive the knife in further, Frollo appears, and is ecstatic that he and Quasi are free from the [[NeverMyFault "spell of Esmeralda."]] Quasi, grief-stricken, [[TheDogBitesBack attacks his former master]] and drops him from the Notre Dame steeples. While this is going on the gargoyles (or the GreekChorus) echo Frollo's words [[IronicEcho "The wicked shall be punished"]].

*** It gets worse if you choose to look at Quasimodo's asking Frollo "Loved? What do you know of love? Who have you ever loved?" as one last desperate attempt to hear that somebody, ''anybody'' loves him, namely from the only person he's known and the only person he loves left in his life. Frollo's denial of this serves as the straw that breaks the camel's back for Quasimodo.
