KING TRITON: Ariel, you are confined to the palace until you understand what you've done.
ARIEL: What did we do? Tell me, Daddy...
ATTINA: Ariel, leave it alone.
ARIEL: No. We haven't done anything wrong.
All we did was listen to music.
KING TRITON: Which you know is forbidden!
ARIEL: But why? Why can't we have music?
KING TRITON: This discussion is over.
ARIEL: Just tell me!
I do not have to explain myself to you.
ARIEL: I don't understand. We love music.
KING TRITON: I will not have music in my kingdom!
ARIEL: I may not remember much about my mother, but I know she wouldn't have wanted this.
SEBASTIAN: It was an anniversary present. Your father had the music box made for your mother. Athena was more than his queen, you know. She was his best friend.
ARIEL: The family together. Music playing all the time.
NARRATOR: The palace always echoing with laughter.
SEBASTIAN: When your mother died, the whole kingdom was heartbroken. The heart that never healed was your father's.
ARIEL: It's so sad. He's forgotten what it feels like to be happy.
I have to bring this back to him.
SEBASTIAN: If you insist.
NARRATOR: So, Ariel came back home and life went on just the same as before. Well, things weren't exactly the same.
Rise and shine, it's a beautiful day.
KING TRITON: To my daughters, and to all the citizens of Atlantica, I hereby decree that music will once again ring clear from one end of my kingdom to the other! Therefore, I hereby present Atlantica's first official Court Composer.
SEBASTIAN: Thank you, Your Highness. Uh, not that we don't trust you, Your Majesty, but... Swifty, hit it, mon.
SWIFTY: Raise your right hand, fin, claw, tentacle, or whatever the case may be. Very good. Do you promise to jump, jive, wail, groove, and at all times lend a helping hand to your fellow music lovers?
KING TRITON: Um... I do?
ATTINA: Thank you, Ariel.
NARRATOR: So that's how a king and a princess brought a family back to life. And, after ten years, love and music finally returned to the kingdom of Atlantica.
