Oh, it's just no use! The power of the trident is just too strong for me to overcome

[under his breath]
I bet Ursula could've done it...
What was that you said?
Nothing. I'm just saying.
[Morgana throws a potion bottle across the room]
Stop criticising me! That's all my mother ever did, was criticise me! It was always, "Ursula" this and "Ursula" that, or "Morgana, why can't you be more like your sister, URSULA!"

Hardly ever have I seen a really disappointing Disney film, and The Little Mermaid II isn't an exception. The story is beautiful, although I thought all the time that Ariel and Eric had made a mistake in not telling little Melody that her mother had originally been a mermaid. The animation was also very good.
I liked Ariel and little Melody, but Morgana and Triton were the best of the characters. I was delighted that Triton was not as strict as in the first movie, and I have always liked wicked woman characters like Morgana. But, of course, I was glad that she was finally destroyed.
In any case, I'm quite sure that H.C. Andersen would not have been very content with this sequel, because his original fairytale was meant to be very sad. I even paid attention to that neither in the first film nor in the sequel have Ariel or Melody any pains while walking on their feet - namely, Andersen tells that every step the little mermaid takes is hurting her as if she was stepping on an edge of a knife.
