In The Waiting Room

The Little Mermaid, Ariel had fallen in love with the Prince at first glance.

She badly wanted legs and had contacted Ursula, the Sea Witch.

Ursula's condition was that she would grant Ariel legs in exchange of her voice.
Ursula asked Ariel to wait while she went to fetch the required magic-herbs and potions.
