I was just watching the Hunchback of Notre Dam, and Frollo is all "choose me or choose fire" or whatever, and she spits in his face. Who does that when someone is about to burn you? No one. You suck it up and kiss the bastard, and then escape and stab him in the back later. But you don't choose the fire.
Do you like that movie btw? My mom says the songs aren't as catchy, but I like it.
