With a spot of tea, Mrs. Potts can make any situation better. She’s a caretaker, a mother, and a voice of reason all wrapped into one loving spotless teapot. We kind of want (need) a Mrs. Potts in our lives, precisely because she does all of these amazing things:
Probably Saves Maurice’s Life
“How would you like a nice spot of tea, sir?”
Understands That Hospitality Is Important
As in, run-Cogsworth-over-with-a-tea-cart important.
Boosts Belle’s Spirits
Tea. It’s a cure-all if there ever was one.
Keeps Chip In Line
She’s a mom. That’s clutch right there.
Keeps Beast In Line
“Try to be patient, sir. The girl has lost her father and her freedom all in one day.”
Way to keep it real, Mrs. Potts.
Serves Up Common Sense In Spades
Like when Lumiere says Belle and Beast will fall in love immediately after she takes her father’s place: “Oh, it’s not that easy, Lumiere. These things take time.”
Declares “Pish Posh” On Silly Rules
She’s not going to let the poor girl go hungry, after all.
Swings Along With the Best of Them
The best being freshly-pressed napkins.
Sings One of The Most Romantic Songs Ever
Belle and Beast were already primed for falling in love. But add in a Mrs. Potts solo? Game over.
Warns of Intruders
Not without saying “pardon me” first. #manners
Pours Hot Tea on Said Intruders
See? Definite cure-all.
Gives Hugs Like None Other
When your porcelain hugs look just as comforting as your human ones, you’ve got some clutch skills.
