The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea (2000) (V)
Ariel: We have to keep Melody away from her. Until Morgana is found Melody can't go in the sea.
Flounder: But Ariel.
Ariel: I'm sorry Flounder, but if Morgana is anything like Ursula, she will never give up. This is the only way. Melody can't know about merpeople or Atlantica or even about you, Daddy.
King Triton: Very well, Ariel, you're right.

Flounder: Now what?

Flounder: Ariel?

Flounder: You can say that again.

Flounder: Children, what did I say about playing "kick the clam" on the reef?

Flounder: Uh, kids.

Flounder: I'm sorry about Melody.

Flounder: Wild sea horses couldn't stop me.

Flounder: Ah, don't worry, Ariel. We'll find her.

Flounder: Oh, but if that old sea witch is in there, and then there's that mean little shark... and then those manta rays come, a-and then she takes those-those creepy tentacles... so suction cups stick to your face, and, and... Uh. Uh-uh. No way you're goin' in there alone.

Flounder: We're doomed.

Flounder: The name's Flounder.

Flounder: "Grrr" yourself, pipsqueak.

Flounder: Melody!

Flounder: We gotta keep trying.

Flounder: Hold on, Melody! I'm gonna bust us outta here... if it's the last thing I... do.

[Ariel shakes her head]
Scuttle: No? No, huh? Well, let me see. New seashells? No new seashells. I gotta admit, I can't put my foot on it right now, but if I just stand here long enough, I should...

Sebastian: I won't tell him. I will stay in one peace
[Ariel has possitioned herself on top of a rock watching Eric longinly]
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/ Someday I'll be/ Part of Your World

Scuttle: You see the snarfblatt dates back to pre-hysterical times when humans would sit around and stare at each other all day.
[long pause]
Scuttle: got very boring. So they invented this snarfblatt to make fine music, allow me!
