FLOUNDER
Hey, Ariel! There you are!

ARIEL
Just look, Flounder! The sun, the sand... isnít it the most beautiful place youíve ever seen?

FLOUNDER
I dunno, Ariel... Iím not sure we ought to be up here.

ARIEL
Donít be such a guppy!

FLOUNDER
A guppy?!? Iím as brave as you are! Iím not afraid of anythingó

ARIEL
What about sharks?

FLOUNDER
Where?!?

ARIEL
Oh, Flounder, you really are a guppy!

FLOUNDER
I am not!

ARIEL
Awww...

(gives FLOUNDER an affectionate pat on the head)

Youíll never guess what I found today. Look!

(lifts up a large silver serving fork)

Have you ever seen anything so wonderful in your entire life?

FLOUNDER
Wow! Cool! What is it?

ARIEL
I donít know... but I bet Scuttle will! Come on, Iíll race you!

FLOUNDER
Hey, wait for me!

SIDE 2

FLOUNDER
Ariel! Are you okay?

SEBASTIAN
Oh child, what have you done?

(After a moment, ARIEL sits up and stares at her new legs in wonderment. Slowly and shakily she tries to stand, sticking her arms out for balance... then falls on her rear. SCUTTLE flaps in.)

SCUTTLE
Well, look who got beached! Hiya, Ariel! Wait Ė thereís something different aboutícha. Donít tell me Ė itís your hairdo, right? Youíve been using the dinglehopper!

(ARIEL shakes her head ďno.Ē)

Nah? Hmm... I canít quite put my foot on it right nowó

SEBASTIAN
Sheís got legs, you idiot!

FLOUNDER
Ariel traded her voice to the Sea Witch to become human!

SCUTTLE
Nah, kid! Not your beautiful pipes!

(ARIEL nods. She opens her mouth, but no sound.)

SEBASTIAN
Ya see? Not a sound! What would her father say? Iíll tell ya what her fatheríd say: heíd say heís gonna kill himself a crab, thatís what heíd say!

FLOUNDER
Now sheís got three days to make Prince Eric fall in love with her. And to prove it, heís gotta kiss her!

SCUTTLE
The Prince? Well, Iíll say!
