'Beauty and the Beast' movie quotes include some of the best lines from the newly re-released, 3D version of this Disney animated classic. 'Beauty and the Beast' was a masterpiece when it was first released in 1991, and the new version features 3D effects and an HD remaster to provide stunning visuals. This "tale as old as time" is the second Disney re-issue in recent months ('The Lion King' did quite well in theaters the second time out). The original 'Beauty and the Beast,' by the way, was the first animated movie to ever garner a Best Picture Oscar nomination. Enjoy these quotes, and if you see a favorite, vote it up!

Control Your Temper
Beasts will be beasts. Belle is certainly a brave one - the Beast's roaring doesn't seem to phase her at all. He, understandably, isn't quite sure what to make of her kindness...
Beast: (roaring) "That hurts!!"
Belle: "If you'd hold still it wouldn't hurt as much!"
Beast: "If you hadn't run away, this wouldn't have happened."
Belle: "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!"
Flowers, Chocolates and Promises
A great quote here from the ever-so-wise Cogsworth the Clock.
Beast: "I want to do something for her - but what?"
Cogsworth: "Well, there's the usual things: flowers... chocolates -- promises you don't intend to keep..."
A Little More Off the Top
The Beast is doing everything he possibly can to look attractive for Belle at the big dinner. Bows, however, aren't a great look for him...
Lumiere: (helping Beast prep for dinner with Belle) "Voila! Oh, you look so...so..."
Lumiere: "Not quite the word I was looking for, but perhaps a - little more off the top."
Cogsworth: "Your lady awaits."
Never Looked at Me That Way
Another wonderful song from 'Beauty and the Beast': "Something There." Belle is beginning to realize that beauty really is more than skin deep.
Beast: (sings) "She glanced this way, I thought I saw... And when we touched, she didn't shudder at my paw. No - it can't be! I'll just ignore... But then, she's never looked at me that way before."
