When Beast really said “I love you”
this is my favorite moment in the movie. You can clearly tell that he was in love with Belle for quite some time, but this was really when he showed it. He knew that she would leave right away, and he thought that she would never come back again, and he still did it, because he loved her.
This is my one of my favorite moments in any disney movie, it’s such a blatant declaration of of love without even saying “I love you”
