Merida tearfully apologizes to her mother after she doesn't immediately turn human after the second sunrise. Becomes heartwarming when she actually does.
"I want you back, Mummy..."
- What really clinches it is the reprise of 'Noble Maiden Fair' being sung softly in the background.
- If you look closely, the Lords and their sons, who have so far been around solely for comic relief purposes and acted mostly like brutes, are also clearly tearing up, as are their sons. Especially when Merida whispers, "I love you..." to Elinor.
- The focus is on Merida and Elinor, but there's also a shot of Fergus just looking sadly down at the triplets. Merida's actions didn't just put Elinor in danger, they almost destroyed three small boys' futures, and tore apart the entire family. Just imagine how things almost turned out.
