* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXSX84eVUCs The bathing scene is arguably the funniest scene in the entire movie]]--to go into great(er) detail about it: Mulan decides to finally bathe herself (quite possibly her first time bathing since starting boot camp), her (paraphrased) reasoning being, "Just because I'm ''pretending'' to be a man, that doesn't mean I have to ''smell'' like one." Mushu tries but fails to talk her out of it, as he's worried that someone might see Mulan and discover that "Ping" is actually a woman. Mulan's not worried at first, but Mushu's eventually proven right when Ling, Yao and Chien-Po get the same idea as Mulan and come to bathe in that same pond (Mushu even exclaims to Cri-Kee, "There's couple of things I KNOW they're bound to notice," before rushing off to save Mulan). Some other things that happen:
** As Ling, Yao and Chien-Po are coming into the pond, Mulan's sinking as far down into the water as she can while maintaining her male disguise and making a hasty exit--she even uses a lily pad to cover her girly bits while trying to get away from the three guys, who're guilelessly trying to befriend "Ping" with a little good-natured water fight (which counts as a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}} since the three do feel bad about how they treated Mulan before and want to be friends with her).
** There's also the part where Yao's standing naked as he declares himself King of the Rock--Mulan's face as she realizes what she's averting her gaze from is priceless. Also funny because, even if they don't show any nudity, it's still pretty risqué for Disney, because we're presumably supposed to imagine Yao standing there with his hands on his hips.
