Sebastian: I hope that you appreciate what I go through for you, young lady! Now, we got to make a plan to get that boy to kiss you. Tomorrow, when he takes you for that ride, you gotta look your best! You gotta bat your eyes, like this.

Sebastian: You gotta pucker up your lips, like this…

Sebastian: You are hopeless, child. You know that. Completely hopeless.
