* Call it [[AffectionateParody Affectionate]] or IndecisiveParody, the scene when Giselle has that dance with Robert is strangely moving. It becomes crushingly sad when [[spoiler:she's alone and the disguised Narissa essentially taunts her with the knowledge she's going to marry a man she no longer loves, as a way to convince her to eat an (actually poisoned) apple with the promise that she'll forget this experience and live Happily Ever After. Giselle takes a bite...]] Of course, this ''is'' a Disney movie, and everything will work out, but perhaps it's a testament to how good AmyAdams is that it's a tearjerker anyway.
** The ambiguity of [[spoiler:Narissa's]] wording and Giselle's GenreSavvy could also make it so that she [[spoiler:knows she'll fall into eternal sleep]] and it's a sort of [[spoiler:suicide]]. Which slays me even more.
** For me, it started when Robert started mouthing the chorus of "So Close" in Giselle's ear.
*** More than just mouthing...he's ''singing'' to her. When you remember his earlier statement that he didn't sing, it gets all the better.
** What really did it for me was when she watched Nancy and Robert kiss and she just looked like she was going to cry.
* After Giselle [[spoiler: eats the apple and falls asleep, Robert realizes that TrueLovesKiss is the only thing that will wake her up. He steps aside to let Edward do it (and the observant viewer will notice he was ''just'' about to move in to kiss her himself for a moment), but it still doesn't work...so both [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy Edward and Nancy tell him that]] ''[[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy he'll]]'' [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy have to do it.]] And then there's what Robert says right before kissing Giselle.]]
-->Robert: *whispering* ''Please...don't leave me.''
** [[spoiler: The look on Nancy's face is equally crushing. She knows it will work, and she knows the implications it has for their relationship. It's heartwarming in the sense that she's willing to step aside without a mote of spite or vindictiveness, but you can see her heart splintering all the while.]]
