      • (The Little Mermaid's, Grandmother goes to the Merwitch for help.)
        Merwitch: Pearls! (throws the Grandmothers payment aside) She's giving Me pearls!
        Zuzu: As your attorney, dear....
        Merwitch: (annoyed) Well what does she want!?
        Zuzu: (whispers) That's the Merqueen mother I smell a deal.
        (The Merwitch stares gleefully at the Grandmother)
        Merwitch: The last time you came to me. (smirks) How in love you were...
        Grandmother: (nostalgic) I was her age, he was all I wanted. I dreamed of dancing with him across a silver floor.
        Merwitch: (glaring at Zuzu) You made that deal! You sold her that potion at a ridiculous low price and then she was too scared to take it! (pouting) So annoying such a waste of my talent's....
        Grandmother: She took it! She has suffered, she deserves her happiness.
        (Zuzu and the Merwitch laugh hysterically)
        Zuzu: Listen Grand-Mama! No one deserves happiness, the lucky ones get it. But the Little Mermaid has been one of the unlucky ones.
        Grandmother: I will give you anything if you help her win her prince.
        Zuzu: (interested) Anything?
        Grandmother: Anything in the Kingdom.
        (Zuzu starts whispering in the Merwitch's ear. She shakes her head until he says something.)
        Merwitch: Ahh! For once you made a good suggestion. Now stand in the corner (Zuzu frowns) I'll call you!
        (Once Zuzu is far enough away the Merwitch turns to the Grandmother.)
        Merwitch: I didn't want to ask this question in front of him. He's such a gossip.
        Grandmother: (frowns) What question?
        Merwitch: Your age, the Truth.
        Grandmother: (depressed) 310 years old.
        Merwitch: Only 90 years until you die?
        Grandmother: Please help her!
        Merwitch: (eager) You'd sacrifice anything?
        Grandmother: Anything!
        Merwitch: I'll take those 90 years! That's rock bottom take it or leave it...(reconsiders) Well I suppose 50 is enough, I don't want to be unfair. After all you want to see your granddaughter live happily?
        Grandmother: (scared) My love of life it goes so quickly...
        Merwitch: (angry) Just as I thought! You were a coward about your prince, and now your selfish about hers! ZUZU!!!
        Zuzu: (hurrys back over) Did she say yes?
        Grandmother: (closes eyes) Take your fifty years!
