Gaston: [horseback riding with LeFou; uses the telescope to see Belle] Look at her, LeFou. My future wife. Belle is the most beautiful girl in the village. That makes her the best.

Gaston: I know. Belle can be as argumentative as she is beautiful.
LeFou: Exactly! Who needs her when you've got us?
Gaston: Yes. But ever since the war I've felt like I've been missing something. And she's the only girl that gives me that sense of...
LeFou: Hmm... je ne sais quoi?
Gaston: I don't know what that means.

Maurice: Belle is not at home! She is with the...
Gaston: [grabs Maurice] You say beast one more time, I WILL FEED YOU TO THE WOLVES!

[Gaston calms down. LeFou taps his nose]
LeFou: That's it.
[Gaston turns to Maurice, smiling. Maurice recoils]
Gaston: Maurice! Please forgive me, old bean. That's no way to talk to my future father-in-law, now is it?
Maurice: Future father-in-law?
Maurice: You will *never* marry my *daughter*.
LeFou: [Beat. Then Gaston furiously punches Maurice in the face, knocking him out] I saw that coming.

Maurice: That's it. There it is.
[he snaps his finger]
Maurice: That's the tree. I'm sure of it.
[he gets off the cart]
Maurice: It-it was downed by lightening at the time. But now it's... resumed an upright position through some sort of... magic or other.
LeFou: [to Gaston] You really want to marry into this family?
Maurice: So that means that the... the castle is that - No. No, it's -
[motions falling tree with his arm]
Maurice: That way. Definitely that way.
