Flounder, hurry up!
Ariel
Flounder, don't be such a guppy.
Flounder
I'm not a guppy.
Ariel
If I become human, I'll never be with my father or sisters again.
Ursula
That's right. But you'll have your man. Life's full of tough choices, isn't it?
Ariel
You're not getting cold fins now, are you?
Ariel
I've never seen a human this close before.
Ariel
[sung] I don't know when/I don't know how/But I know something's starting right now/Watch and you'll see/Some day I'll be/Part of your world.
Ariel
[regarding King Triton, as Sebastian watches, unobserved] If only I could make him understand. I just don't see things the way he does. I just don't see how a world that makes such wonderful things could be bad. [She begins singing "Part of Your World."] Look at this stuff, isn't it neat? / Wouldn't ya think my collection's complete / Wouldn't you think I'm the girl / Girl who has everything / Look at this trove, treasures untold / How many wonders can one cavern hold? / Looking around you'd think / Sure, she's got everything / I've got gadgets and gizmos aplenty / I have whoozits and whatzis galore / You want thingamabobs? I've got twenty / But who cares? No big deal / I want more.
Ariel
All right, I'm going inside. You can just stay here and watch for sharks.
