-->'''Elinor''' [''repairing the tapestry'']: Merida, all this work, all the time spent preparing you, schooling you, giving you everything we never had. I ask you, what do you expect us to do?\\
'''Merida''' [''in the stables'']: Call off the gathering! Would that kill them? You're the queen. You can just tell the lords the princess is not ready for this. In fact, she might not ever be ready for this, so that's that. Good day to you. We'll expect your declarations of war in the morning.\\
'''Elinor''': I understand this must all seem unfair. Even I had reservations when I faced betrothal. But we can't just run away from who we are.\\
'''Merida''': I don't want my life to be over. I want my freedom!\\
'''Elinor''': But are you willing to pay the price your freedom will cost?\\
'''Merida''': I'm not doing any of this to hurt you.\\
'''Elinor''': If you could just try to see what I do, I do out of love.\\
'''Merida''': But it's ''my life'', it's... I'm just not ready.\\
'''Elinor''': I think you'd see, if you could just...\\
'''Merida''': I think I could make you understand if you would just...\\
'''Elinor''': Listen.\\
'''Merida''': Listen.

** The tartan (15th-16th century), kilt (18th century)[[note]]Scottish clans have been wearing kilts in the style as seen in the movie since the 16th century. Wearing the kilt was outlawed in the mid 18th century after some rebellions, and was re-legalised near the end of that century, just in time for it to be romanticised by Sir Walter Scott[[/note]] and woad warpaint (Iron Age); forks and tea (didn't make landfall in Britain till mid-17th century); Highland games (19th century, and Canadian); bagpipes (14th century); references to recently fighting both the Romans (1st-5th century), and the Vikings (8th-11th century); the carnyx (Iron Age) and bears (extinct in Scotland since the 9th-10th century at the latest) ''at the same time''.

** Fergus, who taught her, is no slouch either, he puts an arrow in each of a stuffed bear's nostrils, one between it's eyes and sticks it with various thrown axes and spears.

* MamaBear: Pun completely intended. The filmmakers specifically went for a motherly animal for Elinor to turn into. The trope comes into full effect in the climax, [[spoiler:when Elinor rips out of her restraints, and kills a supernatural bear far bigger than her own bear form, in order to protect her daughter.]]

* BadassFamily: Merida is a peerless archer, Fergus a seasoned warrior and leader, and the boys are a team of cunning ninjas. Elinor seems to be the odd one out as her strength is in communication, [[MamaBear but then...]]

** Queen Elinor gets several:
*** She gets one after an explosive argument when she realizes that the bowstring of Merida's bow has just snapped in the fireplace [[spoiler: She barely salvages the bow, though -- cue MyGodWhatHaveIDone.]]
*** She gets one as a bear when she realizes she's become one, especially when she looks at the mirror.
*** Another Bear!Elinor moment is [[spoiler: when she sees she's lashing out as a permanent, feral bear, especially near the climax, after her husband, [[CassandraTruth not realizing that the bear is his wife]], spots her and Merida and attacks her.]]
** Merida gets some of these moments too:
*** In the trailer, at the circle of standing stones, she senses Mor'du.
*** When she sees her furious mother marching towards her before [[spoiler: she torches her prized bow.]]
*** She gets another when [[BigBad Mor'du]] [[spoiler: is revealed as the eldest prince who destroyed the ancient kingdom.]]
*** Another one during this scene is when Mor'du is about to attack her.
*** When Mor'du shows up, after she [[spoiler: defends Bear Elinor from her husband.]]
*** Finally, she gets one when [[spoiler: [[CelestialDeadline the second sunrise]] begins to show up.]]
