Gaston: Hello, Belle!
Belle: Bonjour, Gaston. [Gaston takes Belle's book] Gaston, may I have my book, please?
Gaston: [flicking through the pages of Belle's book] How can you read this? There's no pictures!
Belle: Well, some people use their imagination.
Gaston: [tossing the book aside] Belle, it's about time you got your head out of those books and paid attention to more important things. Like me.
[the Bimbettes sigh at Gaston]
Gaston: The whole town's talking about it. It's not right for a woman to read. Soon she starts getting "ideas" and "thinking"--
Belle: Gaston, you are positively primeval.
Gaston: Why, thank you, Belle!
[Belle raises her eyebrows in surprise]
Gaston: What do you say you and me take a walk over to the tavern and take a look at my trophies?
Belle: Maybe some other time.
Bimbette #1: What's wrong with her?
Bimbette #2: She's crazy!
Bimbette #3: He's gorgeous!
Belle: Please Gaston I can't, I have to get home to help my father. Goodbye.
Lefou: Ha ha ha! That crazy old loon? He needs all the help he can get!
[Gaston and Lefou laugh at Belle]
Belle: Don't talk about my father that way!
Gaston: Yeah! Don't talk about her father that way! [pounds Lefou's head]
Belle: My father's not crazy, he's a genius!
[Belle's house blows and she runs home. Gaston and Lefou continue to laugh. Gaston accidentally slaps Lefou]
