Movie Quote Quiz

Frollo: Captain Phoebus, arrest her.

Victor: Perhaps he's sick.
Laverne: Impossible. If twenty years of listening to you two hasn't made him sick by now, nothing will.

Hugo: Give her some slack, then reel her in. Then give her some slack.
Laverne: Knock it off, Hugo. She's a girl, not a mackerel.

Clopin: And Frollo gave the child a cruel name, a name that means "half-formed" - Quasimodo.

Frollo: The sentence for insubordination is death. Such a pity. You threw away a promising career.
Phoebus: Consider it my highest honor, sir.

Quasimodo: Is this the Court of Miracles?
Phoebus: Offhand, I'd say it's the Court of Ankle-deep Sewage. Must be the old catacombs.

Phoebus: You leave town for a couple of decades and they change everything.

Oafish Guard: All right, gypsy, where'd you get that money?
Esmeralda: For your information, I earned it.

Brutish Guard: They steal it.

Laverne: Look, he's got a friend with him.
Hugo: Yeah, maybe today wasn't a total loss, after all.
Victor: A vision of loveliness.
Hugo: The one in the dress ain't bad, either.

Clopin: Three cheers for Quasimodo.

Frollo: And look what else I've caught in my net. Captain Phoebus, back from the dead. Another "miracle", no doubt. I shall remedy that.

Factual error: During the song "A Guy Like You," one of the gargoyles trips the trapdoor on Quasimodo's miniature hangman's scaffold. Trapdoors weren't used on scaffolds until the 18th century.

Question: What war is Phoebus returning from?

Answer: That's a good question. France actually fought no wars between the Battle of Castillon in 1451, and the Italian Wars which began in 1494. Seeing as the movie takes place in 1482 it seems strange that Phoebus would have fought in any war, unless he is at least 45 years old.
