Go To



** Jasmine is also incredibly quick on the uptake when Aladdin jumps in to help her in the marketplace. She quickly realises what he's doing and plays along enough to convince the baffled street vendor. She even improvises talking to a random camel like it's her doctor.
** Although he didn't realise it, Aladdin retroactively saved the street vendor from a very nasty fate. Imagine what would have happened if he'd gone through with the punishment and then discovered he'd ''cut off the hand of the princess''.




to:

* Jasmine is able to distract Jafar to help Aladdin get the lamp simply by fooling him into thinking Genie's wish to make her love him worked. She's even willing to kiss him to preserve the ruse. Sadly Jafar sees Aladdin's reaction in her crown through sheer bad luck.



to:

* Abu saving Aladdin right before Jafar can [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness plunge a dagger into him as "thanks" for recovering the lamp]], and managing to steal the lamp right from under Jafar's nose even as he tosses the monkey back into the collapsing Cave of Wonders.

** Even more awesome if you know what happens later. Not only does the prince get humiliated by Rajah and sent hom packing, but the very "street rat" he'd insulted earlier ends up marrying princess Jasmine instead.

Added DiffLines:

* After Jafar takes over and enslaves both the Sultan and Jasmine, he tries to have her marry him. Jasmine's response? Grab a glass of wine and [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu throw it directly into Jafar's face]]. Most powerful being on the Earth as he may be, Jasmine will ''not'' submit to him.


* The Regina Belle and Peabo Bryson version of "A Whole New World" won three major awards in 1993: the Academy Award for Best Original Song, a Grammy Award for Song of the Year, and a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song. In addition, the song is the first and so far only song from a Disney animated film to top the Billboard Hot 100. It also spent 6 weeks atop Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, and one week at #1 on Billboard's Mainstream Top 40 chart.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JR2Qqh-yHEU Jafar after he wishes to be the most powerful sorcerer in the world.]] He effortlessly humiliates the characters while singing his VillainSong, a [[DarkReprise mocking reprise]] of a previous song that praised the hero. The scene ends with some of the most [[EvilLaugh psychotic laughter ever recorded.]]

But that's because Pat Carroll may have ''actually been insane at the time''. Or, you know, on something. We're still not sure...[[/note]]


* Carpet being the best wingman ever and giving Aladdin that extra push for his BigDamnKiss with Jasmine. One wonders if they would've spent the whole night just looking into each others eyes if he hadn't.

* While on the rooftop watching fireworks, Jasmine finally gets Aladdin to confess his identity by tripping himup with a question about Abu. Just Carpet's "facepalm" cements it. She just caught him off guard and he fell right into her trap.

* The hero gets his own Moment of Awesome in the rematch, however - even though Jafar is just as powerful and seemingly just as unbeatable the second time around - by [[DidYouJustScamCthulhu tricking him into wishing for]] ''[[DidYouJustScamCthulhu even more power]]''... which comes with some rather significant drawbacks.
