Quotes:
From The Little Mermaid (1989)
Ariel: But without my voice, how can I.
Ursula: You'll have your looks. Your pretty face and don't underestimate the importance of "body language." Ha!
[singing]
Ursula: The men up there don't like a lot of blabber / They think a girl who gossips is a bore / Yes, on land it's much prefered / for ladies not to say a word / After all, dear, what is idle prattle for? / Come on, they're not all that impressed with conversation / True gentlemen avoid it when they can / But they dote and swoon and fawn / On a lady who's withdrawn / It's she who holds her tongue who gets her man.
