Beauty and the Beast

This is playing when my 12-year-old walks in.

At exactly the right time—which is 1:25, for those keeping score at home—she shrieks, "someone fetch a priest!" A moment later she adds, "you can't say no to the beauty and the beast...darling."

I stare. She notices and raises her eyebrows inquisitively. "You know this song?" I say, stupidly.

She looks confused, perhaps a bit sad at her father's early onset senility. "I love this song," she replies patiently.
