  • GASTON
    You've been dreaming, just one dream
    Nearly all your life
    Hoping, scheming, just one theme:
    Will you be a wife?
    Will you be some he-man's property?
    Good news!
    That he-man's me!
    This equation, girl plus man
    Doesn't help just you
    On occasion, women can
    Have their uses too
    Mainly to extend the fam'ly tree
    Pumpkin, extend with me!
    GASTON
    We'll be raising sons galore
    BELLE
    Inconceivable!
    GASTON
    Each built six foot four!
    BELLE
    Unbelievable!
    GASTON
    Each stuffed with ev'ry Gaston gene!
    BELLE
    I'm not hearing this!
    GASTON
    You'll be keeping house with pride!
    BELLE
    Just incredible!
    GASTON
    Oh so gratified
    BELLE
    So unweddable!
    GASTON
    That you are a part of this idyllic scene.
    (spoken)
    Picture this: A rustic hunting lodge, my latest kill roasting over the fire, my little wife massaging my feet, while the little
    ones play on the floor with the dogs. We'll have six or seven!
    BELLE
    Dogs?
    GASTON
    No, Belle!
    Strapping boys...like me!
    BELLE
    Imagine that!
    GASTON
    I can see that we will share
    All that love implies
    We shall be a perfect pair
    Rather like my thighs
    You are face to face with destiny!
    All roads lead to...
    The best things in life are...
    All's well that ends with me!
    Escape me?
    There's no way
    Certain as "Do, Re,"
    Belle, when you marry....
    (spoken)
    So Belle, what would it be?
    Is it "yes", or is it "oh, yes"?
    BELLE
    I...I just don't deserve you!
    GASTON
    Who does? ME!
