Beauty and the Beast (2017) Poster

Dan Stevens: Beast



  • [last lines] 

    Prince : [dancing with her]  What? What is it?

    Belle : [smiles]  How would you feel about growing a beard?

    [He smirks and growls. They laugh] 

  • Belle : [finds the Beast reading in the garden]  What are you reading?

    Beast : [quickly closes the book]  Nothing.

    Belle : "Guinevere and Lancelot."

    Beast : [correcting her]  Well, actually..."King Arthur and the Round Table." Knights, and men, and swords and things...

    Belle : Still... It's a romance.

    Beast : Alright...

  • Belle : [to the Beast, about the library]  Have you really read every one of these books?

    Beast : [scoffs]  No, not all of them. Some of them are in Greek.

    Belle : [laughs]  Was that a joke? Are you making jokes now?

    Beast : [smirks]  Maybe.

    [He leaves, shaking his head and smiling. Belle giggles] 

  • Beast : [to Belle, opening the enchanted book]  A little gift from the Enchantress. A book that truly allows you to escape.

    [blows the dust off it and places it on the stand] 

    Belle : [fascinated]  How amazing!

    Beast : [sadly]  It was her cruelest trick of all. It was just another curse. Perhaps our world has no place for a creature like me. But it can for you.

    [He offers Belle his hand. Belle takes it and he places her hand on the book] 

    Beast : Think of the one place that you've always wanted to see. Now find it in your mind's eye and feel it in your heart.

  • [Beast frees Belle] 

    Beast : [sings]  I was the one who had it all, I was the master of my fate / I never needed anybody in my life, I learned the truth too late / I'll never shake away the pain, I close my eyes but she's still there / I let her steal into my melancholy heart, it's more than I can bear / Now I know she'll never leave me, even as she runs away / She will still torment me, calm me, hurt me, move me, come what may / Wasting in my lonely tower, waiting by an open door / I'll fool myself, she'll walk right in and be with me for evermore... / I rage against the trials of love, I curse the fading of the light / Though she's already flown so far beyond my reach, she's never out of sight / Now I know she'll never leave me, even as she fades from view / She will still inspire me, be a part of everything I do / Wasting in my lonely tower, waiting by an open door / I'll fool myself, she'll walk right in, and as the long long nights begin, I'll think of all that might have been / Waiting here for evermore...

  • Belle : [to the Beast]  I never thanked you for saving my life.

    Beast : Well, I never thanked *you* for not leaving me to be eaten by wolves.

    [Belle laughs] 

  • Belle : [hears the servants laughing in the castle]  They know how to have a good time.

    Beast : [rolls his eyes]  Yes, but when I enter the room, the laughter dies.

    Belle : Me too.

    [the Beast looks at her in surprise] 

    Belle : The villagers say that I'm a funny girl. But I'm not sure they mean it as a compliment.

    Beast : I'm sorry. Your village sounds terrible.

    Belle : [sighs]  Almost as lonely as your castle.

    Beast : [inspired]  What do you say we run away?

  • Beast : [to the magic mirror]  Show me the girl...

  • Beast : [roaring in pain as Belle cleans his wounds]  *Ow*! That hurts.

    Belle : If you held still, it wouldn't hurt as much.

    Beast : If you hadn't run away, none of this would have happened.

    Belle : Well, if you hadn't frightened me, I wouldn't have run away!

    Beast : Well, you shouldn't have been in the West Wing!

    Belle : Well, you should learn to control your temper!

    [the Beast turns away, too tired to argue. Belle finishes cleaning his wounds; he doesn't protest this time] 

    Belle : Try to get some rest.

  • Belle : [sees the Beast's silhouette in an upper part of the tower]  Who's there? Who are you?

    Beast : [angrily]  Who are *you*?

    Belle : I've come for my father!

    Beast : Your father... is a thief!

    Belle : Liar!

    Beast : He stole a rose.

    Belle : I asked for the rose. Punish ME, not him.

    Maurice : No, he means forever. Apparently, that's what happens around here when you pick a flower!

    Belle : [to the Beast]  A life sentence for a rose?

    Beast : [leaps down to her section of the tower, but remains hidden in the shadows]  I received eternal damnation for one. I'm merely locking him away. Now, do you still wish to take your father's place?

    Belle : Come into the light.

    [the Beast doesn't move. Belle grabs Lumiere and holds him up to his face. Seeing the Beast's intimidating appearance, she gasps in fear] 

    Beast : [irked]  Choose.

  • Beast : [to Belle, who is in the West Wing admiring the enchanted rose; furiously]  What are you doing here? What did you do to it?

    Belle : [frightened]  Nothing!

    Beast : Do you realize what you could have done? You could have damned us all! Get out of here! *Go*!

  • Belle : [reciting lines from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" as the Beast rests]  "Love can transpose to form and dignity. Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind..."

    Beast : [recites the rest of the line with her]  "... and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind."

    Belle : [surprised]  You know Shakespeare.

    Beast : [rolls over]  I had an expensive education.

    Belle : Actually, "Romeo and Juliet"'s my favorite play.

    Beast : [groans exasperatedly]  Ugh, why is that not a surprise?

    Belle : [taken aback]  I'm sorry?

    Beast : Well, all that heartache, and pining, and...

    [shudders and sticks out his tongue] 

    Beast : So many better things to read.

    Belle : [shocked]  Like what?

    [Cut to the Beast leading Belle into the castle library] 

    Beast : Well, there are a couple of things in here you could start with...

  • [the Beast fights Gaston back, grabs him and holds him over] 

    Gaston : Don't let me go... Please, I'll do anything. Don't hurt me, beast.

    Beast : I am *not* a beast!

    [He lets him go] 

    Beast : Go.

    [Gaston walks away from him] 

    Beast : Get out!

  • Belle : [watching Gaston chase the Beast on the castle rooftop]  *No*!

    Beast : Belle?

    [He climbs up the tower and sees her] 

    Beast : *Belle*! You came back!

    Belle : I tried to stop them!

    Beast : Stay there! I'm coming!

  • Beast : [to Belle, gruffly]  You'll join me for dinner. That's not a request.

    Mrs. Potts : Gently, Master. The girl lost her father *and* her freedom in one day.

    Lumière : Yes, the poor thing is probably in there scared to death.

    Belle : [Unbeknownst to them, Belle has turned her pink gown into a rope so she can escape. The Beast knocks on her bedroom door again, softly this time; nervously]  Just a minute.

    Lumière : You see? There she is. Now remember: Be gentle.

    Mrs. Potts : Kind.

    Plumette : Mmm, charming.

    Cogsworth : Sweet!

    Lumière : And when she opens the door, give her a dashing, debonaire smile! Come, come, show me the smile!

    Cogsworth : [the Beast gives a wide smile, showing his monstrous teeth. The servants react in fright]  Oh, dear!

    Plumette : Oh, no!

    Beast : [his smile vanishes; graciously]  Will you join me for dinner?

    [He turns away and shakes his head at the servants as if to say, "This'll never work"] 

    Belle : You've taken me as your prisoner, and now you want to have dinner with me? Are you insane?

    Plumette : [the Beast becomes visibly enraged; the servants back away in fear]  Uh-oh! He's losing it!

    Cogsworth : Oh, dear!

    Beast : [pounds on Belle's door, yelling]  I told you to join me for dinner!

    Belle : And I told you no!

    Madame Garderobe : [awakens startled]  Oh, what time is it? What's happening?

    Belle : I'd *starve* before I ever ate with you!

    Beast : [roaring]  Well, be my guest! Go ahead and starve!

    [to Lumiere] 

    Beast : If she doesn't eat with me, then she doesn't eat *at all*!

    [storms off] 

    Beast : Idiots!

  • Lumière : Oh, my prince!

    Prince : Hello, old friend.

    [hugging Lumiere] 

    Lumière : It's so good to see you!

    Plumette : You saved our lives, mademoiselle.

    Chip : Belle, It's me! It's Chip!

    [he hugs Belle] 

  • [the Beast enters the dining room and sees a dinner plate on his side. He sits down and sees another plate set up across from him. He pushes away the plate in a fit of rage] 

    Beast : [roars]  *Lumiere*!

    [Lumière and Cogsworth get startled] 

    Lumière : [turns to Cogsworth]  Be calm. Let me do the talking.

    [the Beast bursts through the door] 

    Beast : You're making her dinner?

    Lumière : We thought you might appreciate the company.

    Cogsworth : Master, I just want to assure you that I had no part of this hopeless plan. Preparing her dinner, designing a gown for her, giving her a suite in the East Wing...

    Beast : You gave her a bedroom?

    Cogsworth : No, no, no! He gave her the bedroom.

    Lumière : Well, this is true. But, if this girl is the one who can break the spell, then maybe you can start by using dinner to charm her.

    [turns to Cogsworth, bonks] 

    Lumière : Good thinking, Cogsworth.

    Cogsworth : What?

    Beast : That's the most ridiculous idea, I've ever heard. Charm the prisoner.

    Lumière : But you must try, master. With every passing day, we become less human.

    Beast : She's the *daughter* of a common thief. What kind of person do you think that makes her?

    Mrs. Potts : Oh, you can't judge people by who their father is, now can you?

    [the Beast sighs] 

  • Beast : You could stay here. You could be happy.

    Belle : Can anyone be happy if they aren't free?

  • Belle : [singing]  "This is the Paris of my childhood/These were the borders of my life/In this crumbling, dusty attic/Where an artist loved his wife/Easy to remember/Harder to move on/Knowing the Paris of my childhood/Is gone"

    [she sits on the bed as the Beast walks around to the other side of the room] 

    Beast : What happened to your mother?

    Belle : It was the one story Papa could never bring himself to tell me. I knew better than to ask.

    Beast : [he looks to the chair and gasps softly]  A doctor's mask...

    [he pauses] 

    Beast : Plague.

    [flashback to a plague doctor closing his medicine case. Belle's mother lays sick on the bed behind him] 

    Plague Doctor : We have to leave. Now.

    Belle's Mother : [to Young Maurice]  Go, before it takes her too.

    [he picks up a crying infant Belle as her mother kisses the rose he left behind. Back to present, Belle clutching her crib] 

    Beast : I'm sorry I ever called your father a thief.

    Belle : [whispers]  Let's go home.

  • Beast : [breathing heavily]  You came back.

    Belle : Of course I came back. I'll never leave you again.

    Beast : I believe it's my time to leave.

    Belle : We're together now. It's gonna be fine.

    Beast : At least I got to see you one last time.

    [the last petal falls; the Beast dies] 

    Belle : No! Please, no.


    Belle : Come back. Come back. Please, don't leave me. I love you.

  • Cogsworth : Well, Master, I have had my doubts, but everything is moving like clockwork. True love really does win the day!

    Beast : I let her go.

    Cogsworth : [shocked]  You what?

    Lumière : Master, how could you do that?

    Beast : I had to.

    Cogsworth : But why?

    Mrs. Potts : Because he loves her.

    Lumière : Then why are we not human?

    Cogsworth : Because she doesn't love him. And now, it's too late.

    Plumette : [hopefully]  But she might come back.

    Beast : No. I set her free. I'm sorry I couldn't do the same for all of you. Now, go. Our time is almost past.
