The confrontation.

Ariel: "Daddy, I love him!"
Triton: "No... Have you lost your senses completely? He's a human, you're a mermaid!"
Ariel: "I don't care!"
Triton: "So help me, Ariel, I'm going to get through to you. And if this is the only way, so be it."

Destruction of the grotto.
Flotsam: "We represent someone who can help you."
Jetsam: "Someone who can make all your dreams come true."

Ariel makes a choice. Her father just pushed her too hard on this one.

Ariel: "My voice?"

Ursula, ever the shmoozer, names her price.

Ursula shakes her booty. :D

Ursula takes Ariel's voice. This is an absolutely haunting sequence.

When I was a kid I had a classmate who loved to re-enact this scene for no apparent reason in front of the class. And that classmate was a boy. Heh.

Ariel gets her legs.
Ariel surfaces with her classic hair-toss.
Ariel moves her toes in fascination. It's this kind of innocentcuriosity that I love about her.

Scuttle's scatterbrained persona.
