Shrek the Musical (2013) Script

Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...

...who lived with his parents in a bog by a tree.

It was a pretty nasty place, but he was happy because ogres like nasty.

On his birthday, the little ogre's parents sat him down to talk, just as all ogre parents had for hundreds of years before.

And wherever he went, crowds would welcome him with festive torches and hatchets and fun things like that.

But whenever the little ogre tried to join in the fun...

...his new friends would suddenly realize they had other things to do.

So the ogre did what his parents had told him to.

He found a perfectly rancid swamp, and there he stayed for many years, all alone, but very happy with how his life had turned out.

This is not appropriate for wood.

I'm gonna bail if we're in here for too long.

You know what? This bog...

This place is a dump! It's awful.

Take deep breaths, brother. He has panic attacks.

This little piggy needs some Paxil. Oh!

Look, you read Lord Farquaad's decree.

Yeah, yeah, we read it.

"All fairy-tale creatures have been banished from the Kingdom of Duloc.

All fruitcakes and freaks will be sent to a 'resettlement facility.'"

Um... it smells like butt. Yes.

She's right. It really stinks.

When I call your name, step forward.

Pinocchio, the Puppet!

I am not a puppet, I'm a real boy.

That's your patch of mud down there. Thank you very much.

Shoemaker's Elf! Yes. Right here.

Ugly Duckling! Aw! Dumped on a swamp!

What are you doing in my swamp?

Oh, gosh!

Well, we were forced to come here.

Forced? By who? Lord Farquaad!

He huffed und he puffed und he signed an eviction notice.

Oh, really?! Well, not my problem.

Now you all need to turn around and go back where you came from.

Go back? We can't go back!

Farquaad will turn us into bratwurst!

Oh! The guy's bad news.

Hey, maybe you could talking to him, huh?

Yeah, he'd listen to you!

You're big and scary.

I'm also an ogre, which means I stay on my swamp and avoid large crowds. Or haven't you read the stories?

Ha! You mean those stories that say that I'm a big, bad wolf?

Oh yeah! That's so funny! Hey...

And the ones that say I'm a wicked witch?

Or... Or the ones that say that I'm a "wooden boy."

What? I'm not a wooden boy.

I have a glandular condition.

Look here, ogre, I'm gonna spell it out for you.

We don't want us here any more than you do.

But you are the only one tough enough to stand up to that no-good flimflammer Farquaad.

Tough enough? You don't even know me!

♪ I always dreamed I'd get a happy ending

♪ It was foretold in my horoscope

♪ Can't you help us out with an "ever after"?

♪ Can't you see that you're our only hope?

No. - ♪ You're our only hope

- ♪ Hope ♪ You're our only hope

♪ H-O-P-E Hope

♪ You're our only hope

♪ Esperanza

♪ You're our only... ♪ OK, fine, I get it!

Attention, all fairy-tale things! Your welcome is officially worn out!

I'm gonna go see this Farquaad guy right now, and get you all off my land and back where you came from!

♪ Time to say goodbye Time to say farewell

♪ Time for you to fly It's been really swell!

♪ Gosh, I'm gonna cry Time to say goodbye I'll be right back.

♪ Time to say vamoose Don't get comfortable!

♪ Ogre on the loose And don't touch my...

♪ Time to say goodbye ♪ Don't die!

It's my swamp. I'm going to your house and breaking...

Whoa!

Somebody stop that donkey!

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!

Hey, how you doin'? I hear him over here!

Help a donkey out, would you?

Oh, no!

It's hideous! Oh, that's not very nice.

It's just a donkey.

Step aside, ogre, and let us at him. Why? What did he do?

I don't wanna die! I don't wanna die!

He's a talking donkey. A freak of nature.

As are you, you unsavory beast.

Hey, now, you're going the right way for a smacked bottom, you are.

Mm... By the order of Lord Farquaad, I am authorized to place you both under arrest!

Under arrest, eh?

I want to go home right now!

This is the part where you run away.

And don't come back!

Can I just say? That was incredible.

Man, they were trippin' over themselves to get away from you.

I like that. Oh, good, I'm glad.

Now, why don't you go celebrate your narrow escape with your friends.

But I don't have any friends. Now there's a shocker.

Say, you lost or something?

No, I'm just trying to figure out the best route to Duloc.

Oh. Duloc?

I know Duloc. You gotta let me show you the way, because I am like a GPS with fur!

I'll be fine on my own, thanks. But nobody's fine on their own!

Not when you look like we do!

Hey! Didn't you hear what they said?

Man, this place is goin' Stepford! We gotta join forces!

Otherwise they'll lock me up, and I cannot go back in a cage!

I don't know if I mentioned this or not, but I did six years in solitary for impersonating a piñata.

Oh! That was really scary.

And if that don't work, if you don't mind my saying, your breath will certainly get the job done.

Listen, little donkey, take a look at me. What am I?

Really green? No! I'm an ogre!

You know, grab your torch and pitchforks!

Doesn't that bother you? Nope.

Really? Really, really.

Oh. Damn, I like you. What's your name?

Shrek. Shrek?

Well, you know what I like about you, Shrek?

You got that whole, "I don't care what anybody thinks of me" thing.

I like that. I respect that, Shrek.

You all right.

Thelonius, I'm ready. Bring in the cookie!

Oh, gosh. Uh-oh. What's happening now?

Oh! This is scary. Oh, no!

No! It's you!

"Run, run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!"

Look what you've done to my legs! You are a monster!

I'm not the monster here, you are.

You and the rest of that fairy-tale trash poisoning my perfect world.

I know I haven't gotten them all, so tell me, where are the others?

Eat me!

No, no, no, no.

I've tried to be fair to you creatures, now my patience has reached its end.

Tell me or I'll... No!

Not the buttons! Not my gumdrop buttons!

All right then, who is hiding them?

OK, I'll tell you.

Do you know the Muffin Man?

The Muffin Man? The Muffin Man.

Yes, I know the Muffin Man who lives on Drury Lane?

Well, she's married to the Muffin Man.

The Muffin Man? The Muffin Man!

She's married to the Muffin Man.

My Lord, we have scoured the land tirelessly and have finally found the one treasure you most seek!

A pretty pony?

No, it's the Magic Mirror, sire.

Then what are you waiting for? Bring it in! And take that cookie to the swamp!

The swamp is no place for a baked good!

You're horrible! Horrible!

Boo!

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, is this not the most perfect kingdom of them all?

Ah, yes, Duloc is a wondrous land, but there's one thing you forgot.

You are not a king, My Liege, and so a kingdom this is not.

Uh, Thelonius.

You were saying?

What I mean is, you're not a king yet, but you can become one.

All you have to do is marry a princess.

Go on. So just sit back and relax, My Lord, because it's time for you to play Duloc's fastest growing date show sensation, This is Your Wife!

Yay!

Now let's meet today's eligible bachelorettes!

Bachelorette number one is a mentally abused shut-in from a kingdom far, far away.

She likes sushi and hot-tubbing anytime!

Her hobbies include cooking and cleaning for her two evil step-sisters!

- Please welcome Cinderella! I love the broom. Yeah.

Bachelorette number two is a cape-wearing girl from the land of fancy.

She may live with seven other men, but she's not easy!

Just kiss her dead, frozen lips and find out what a live wire she is!

- Come on, give it up for Snow White! She's in Tupperware.

Bachelorette number three lives in a dragon-guarded castle, surrounded by hot boiling lava!

- But don't let that cool you off.

She likes piña coladas and getting caught in the rain.

Yours for the rescuing, Princess Fiona!

So will it be bachelorette number one...

- I don't know! ...bachelorette number two, or bachelorette number three? They're all so nice. I don't know.

Boys, what do you say? One, two, three, one, three, one?

One, three, two, three... There's no four. All right, all right.

Bachelorette number three! Hm?

Lord Farquaad, you've chosen Princess Fiona!

Princess Fiona. She's perfect.

Except for that dragon and lava thing. I'll have to find someone else to go.

You know, I should probably mention this little thing about the princess that happens at night. I will make Fiona my queen, and Duloc will finally have the perfect king!

Yes, but after sunset... Silence, silence.

Captain, round up your men, summon the citizens!

Thelonius, tell the royal coiffeur I'll need my hair pressed!

We're going to get a queen!

But-But... But you didn't even look at my special features!

Check this out. I've got extras!

OK, OK, OK. The rules are very simple.

Whoever spots a horse and cart along the road...

Punch buggy! Ow!

Fun, right?

No! What kind of insane game is that?

Haven't you ever been on a road trip? No.

Man, you need to get out more, because... Punch buggy!

Ow!

I got you. I got you with that wagon full of hay over there.

Donkey, if you do that one more time...

See, that's another reason why you need me around.

Who else is gonna fill you in on all the fun stuff you missed out on?

You may not know it, but you are one lucky ogre...

Punch buggy! Ow!

Mutton cart at three o'clock. Mother Hubbard, that hurt!

You know, you're right, that was pretty fun. Shall we play again?

No, that's OK, you win.

Maybe we should move on to I Spy, or I Went on a Picnic, or something that's not gonna put me in a body cast.

Donkey, look!

Lord Farquaad's castle. Didn't I tell you I'd find it?

It's a bit much, isn't it?

Do you think he might be compensating for something?

Oh, forget it.

Welcome to the Celebrate Duloc Festival! The show's about to begin!

Hey! Hey, you! Ogre!

Spin that barrel! Excuse me.

No, come on! Don't leave me!

No, no... No, no, no, no!

Hey, are you Lord Farquaad? Ah!

Maybe.

Does the name strike fear in your heart?

No, but that little hat does.

Who let this thing in here?

Look, I'll be out of your silky hair as soon as you give me my swamp back.

Your swamp? Yes, where you dumped those fairy-tale creatures. News flash, ogre, that oozing mud pit is actually within the province of Duloc, therefore under my jurisdiction.

Now look here, half-pint! Wait a minute.

Wait a minute.

Oh, this is too perfect. What is?

You! You're big and hulking and wonderfully expendable.

People of Duloc, we have a winner!

Congratulations, ogre.

You've won the honor of embarking on a great and noble quest!

But we're already on a quest. To get my swamp back!

Yes, and you've nearly accomplished it!

All you need to do is one more simple little task, and I'll hand over the deed to your swamp.

And what exactly is this little task?

There's just this package that I need picked up.

Miss Duloc, fill them in and show them out!

Little task, my hoof!

Rescue a princess? Fight a dragon? Man, we got jacked!

We? I don't remember inviting a donkey on this leg of the journey.

I don't get it, Shrek.

Why didn't you just make him give you your swamp back?

Ooh! Pull some of that ogre stuff on him.

You know, throttle him, lay siege to his fortress.

The whole ogre trip. For your information, there's a lot more to ogres than people think.

Hm. Example? Example. OK.

Ogres are like onions.

They stink? Yes. No!

Uh, they make you cry? No!

You leave them out in the sun, they get all brown and start sprouting little white hairs.

No! Layers. Onions have layers.

Ogres have layers.

Onions have layers. You get it? We both have layers!

Oh... You both got layers.

But you know, not everybody likes onions.

Parfaits! Everybody likes parfaits, and they have layers!

Have you ever met a person that said, "Hey, let's get some parfaits," and they be like, "Hell no, I don't like no parfaits!"

Parfaits are delicious. I don't care!

Ogres are not like parfaits!

Parfaits might be the most delicious thing on the whole damn planet.

This may turn into the longest day of my entire life.

I got the perfect remedy for that! Oh, no, I'm not interested.

Finally! The bridge to the dragon's keep. Let's go.

Um, Shrek, remember when you said ogres have layers?

Oh, aye.

Well, I got a little confession to make. Donkeys don't have layers.

We wear our fear right out there on our sleeves.

You can't tell me you're afraid of heights.

Uh, no, I'm just a bit uncomfortable about being on a rickety bridge over a boiling lake of lava!

Whoo! Wow!

That is so interesting.

Because I happen to have the perfect remedy for that.

Oh! You do?

Oh, Shrek! Was that you?

Man! You gotta warn somebody before you just crack one off!

My mouth was open and everything!

Believe me, Donkey, if it was me, you'd be dead.

It's brimstone. Yeah, right, brimstone.

Don't be talkin' it's the brimstone, I know what I smell, it wasn't no brimstone, it didn't come from no stone neither.

Oh, hey, look! Oh! This'll come in handy. Hope it's fireproof.

All right, now you wait here. I'll be back in a bit.

Wait here? You mean by myself?

Unless you'd rather come slay the dragon and rescue the princess?

Uh... No, I'm good. Waiting is fine.

I'll just sit here and twiddle my hooves.

Just don't get into any trouble.

What kind of trouble can I get into? I'm just sittin' and waitin'.

Have a little faith.

Uh... Shrek?

Shrek!

Shrek, is that you?

Oh! Dragon!

Well, hello, gorgeous!

Is it dinnertime already? Ooh! I better get my recipe box.

Are you Princess Fiona? I am.

Awaiting a knight so bold as to rescue me.

Oh... Uh... That's nice. Now let's go.

But wait, Sir Knight! I have long awaited this day!

And I wouldest first like to knowest the name of my champion.

Um... Shrek. Sir Shrek!

I pray that you take this favor as a token of my gratitude.

Oh, yeah... Oh...

Thanks. So where's the door? There is no door.

What do you mean there's no door? How do we get down?

Why, the same way you got up.

The same way I... Oh, come on!

I just... All right, let's go. Now holdest on, Sir Knight.

Oh! You did it!

You're amazing, you're wonderful!

You're a little unorthodox, I'll admit, but thy deed is great, and thine heart is pure.

I am eternally in your debt. Uh...

And where would a brave knight be without his noble steed?

All right! Hope you heard that. She called me a "noble steed!"

She think I'm a steed.

Well, Sir Shrek, the battle is won. You may remove your helmet.

Uh... no. -Why not?

I... I have helmet hair.

Please, I wouldest look upon the face of my rescuer.

Oh, no, you wouldn't-est.

But how will you kiss me?

What? That wasn't in the job description.

Maybe it's a perk.

No, it's destiny. "A princess is rescued by a brave knight and then they share true love's first kiss."

With Shrek? Oh! You think that Shrek is your true love?

Wah-wah!

Oh, no. What's so funny?

Well, let's just say I'm not your type, OK?

Of course you are. You're my rescuer! Now remove your helmet.

Look, I really don't think that's a good idea.

Just take off the helmet. I'm not going to.

Take it off! No!

Now! OK! Whoa. Easy.

As you command, Your Highness.

You're an ogre.

Oh, you were expecting Prince Charming?

Well, yes, actually.

Oh, no. I'm supposed to be rescued by my true love.

Not by some ogre and his pet. Oh...

Well, so much for "noble steed." You're not supposed to be an ogre.

Princess, I was sent to rescue you by Lord Farquaad, OK?

He's the one who wants to marry you.

Then why didn't he come and rescue me?

Good question. You should ask him that when we get there tomorrow.

Tomorrow?

Oh, my gosh, it's almost sunset! So?

Oh, uh... I didn't realize it was so late. We need to make camp.

Camp? But you've just escaped!

Yes, and I found the whole ordeal quite exhausting.

I need to rest immediately.

That's unfortunate, because we're gonna keep going.

I need to find somewhere to camp right now!

Very well. There's a cave right there.

That is no place for a princess. No, it's perfect.

Well, gentlemen, I bid thee good night!

You want me to read you a bedtime story? 'Cause I will.

I said good night!

She seems nice.

"By day one way, by night another, this shall be the norm, until you find true love's first kiss and then take love's true form."

And this is what I realized, if we escaped a dragon, man, we could do anything.

Hey, I could be a steed.

Ooh! Or I could work the Crusades circuit if I wanted to.

I could even be one of those horses that pulls those wagons full of beer!

I'd have to get some hair extensions on my ankles, but I could do it.

Who do you wanna be? I don't want to be anyone.

Just for fun, though, who would you pick?

I wouldn't. Donkey... No, but if you had to.

Like, if a guy had a sword at your throat and he was like, "Look here, you can't be an ogre anymore, pick something else," then who would you pick?

I would pick that guy up and hurl him into a tree!

Man, you are no fun at all, you know it?

Is this what it's gonna be like when we finish rescuing the princess?

Us sitting around our swamp all day doing nothing?

Our swamp? Donkey, there is no "our." There's no "we."

There's just me and my swamp. And when I do get back, the first thing I'm going to do is build a ten-foot wall around my land.

You cut me deep, Shrek.

You cut me real deep just now.

What's your problem anyway? What you got against the whole world?

I'm not the one with the problem, OK?

It's the world who seems to have a problem with me.

You saw how that princess reacted. That's how it always is.

People take one look at me and it's all, "Help! A big, stupid, ugly ogre!"

They judge me before they even know me.

That's why I'm better off alone.

But you know what, Shrek?

When we met, I didn't think you was just a big, stupid, ugly ogre.

Yeah, I know.

So there's really no one else you'd rather be?

Mornin'.

Uh, Princess, did you by any chance eat a few of those funny little mushrooms by the stream?

Of course not.

I'm just happy that it's a new day, full of promise and fresh starts.

And the first thing I would like to do is to apologize for my behavior yesterday.

We obviously got off on the wrong foot, and I would like to make it up to you.

You would? Yes.

You did rescue me, after all.

So I've gathered a basket of berries for the trip, and I made you each... a daisy chain!

Oh, wow! Look at these! They're beautiful, Princess!

Aren't they beautiful, Shrek? Oh... Oh...

Oh! You'll grow to love them, I promise. Lead the way!

So, uh...

So, Princess, do you often frolic with rats?

And what if I do?

Oh, I don't know, Princess, germ-infested vermin, not exactly what I expected.

Well, maybe you shouldn't judge people before you get to know them.

Ouch!

So, tell me about my groom-to-be, Lord Farquaad. What's he like?

Well, um, let me put it this way, Princess, men of Farquaad's stature are in short supply.

Really? Yeah, but he is a little intimidating.

Well, he must be! And yet very good at small talk.

What are you guys doing?

What? Just saying you might want to lower your expectations a bit.

Yes, like three feet or so.

All right, all right, yuck it up. It doesn't bother me. Not today.

After a lifetime of misery, things are finally going my way.

Oh... A lifetime of misery, right. OK.

You chuckled. Huh?

When I said "lifetime of misery," you chuckled.

Did I? Yes.

Look, I'm sure it was very difficult living in a dragon-guarded tower.

It was. I'm sure.

All right, then.

Although, it must've been nice to have a roof and a cozy bed.

Which is more than I had when I left home.

You're not actually comparing yourself to what I endured?

I'm just saying you don't corner the market on unhappy childhoods.

There are things you don't know, you know.

About me. About how rough I had it!

My what? Your father, My Liege?

You mean that horrible little man who tried to keep me down my whole life?

That mal-tempered monster?

No, me either.

Congratulations, Princess. Your future awaits.

Yes, it does.

Oh, well, so much for that batch of s'nothers I was gonna make us.

S'nothers?

They're traditional ogre campfire snacks. A little bit like s'mores, but instead of marshmallow and chocolate, we use squirrel gizzards and mulch. They just melt in your mouth!

I need to sit down for a minute. No, no sitting down.

We need to get the princess to Duloc. No, wait, Shrek, I... Um...

Well, look, I may not get another chance to try one of those s'nothers.

You eat one, you may not get a chance to do anything!

Zip it, Donkey. I was just thinking that maybe Duloc could wait until morning?

Morning? Why not?

I've spent my whole life without true love. What's one more night?

All right, I'll find us some dinner. I'll get the firewood.

But if you could, I'd want to say a few things to you.

You may not get another chance.

And you two were obviously digging on each other.

An ogre. She needs to know.

Hey, where you going? To get more wood, before your fire dies.

Princess.

Princess Fiona.

Princess, where are you?

Princess, it's very spooky in here, I ain't playing no games... Oh!

No! Help! Shrek! Oh, no, no, no! It's OK!

What'd you do with the princess? Donkey, I am the princess. It's me.

In this body. Oh, my God. You ate the princess!

Can you hear me? Keep breathing! I'll get you out of there!

Donkey!

Princess?

What happened to you?

"By day one way, by night another, this shall be the norm, until you find true love's first kiss and then take love's true form."

That's beautiful. I didn't know you wrote poetry.

Donkey, it's a curse. I've had it since I was girl.

A curse? A witch cast a spell on me.

Now every night, when the sun goes down I become this...

...this horrible, ugly beast!

All right, calm down, you're not that ugly.

OK, I'm not gonna lie, you are ugly, but you only look like this at night. Shrek's ugly 24/7.

Wait a second, that's perfect! Perfect? Donkey, if Lord Farquaad finds out I look like this, he'll never marry me!

So? So, I have to kiss my true love!

The kiss is the only thing that will break the spell and make me beautiful.

But, you know, you're kind of an ogre, and Shrek...

Well, you got a lot in common.

Shrek? Yeah, if he knew all this, I think maybe... No, wait, wait, wait, he can't know.

And you can't tell him! Not a word! No one must ever know!

Promise you won't tell. Promise! All right, all right.

I won't tell him. But you should.

Man, I know when this is all over, I'm gonna need a whole lot of serious therapy.

Princess, I...

How's it going first of all? Good?

Good for me, too. I'm OK.

I can't think about Shrek. Not now.

I'm a princess after all, and look at me!

I mean, really, who could ever love a beast so hideous and ugly?

Princess and ugly don't go together. That's why I can't stay here with Shrek.

My only chance to live happily ever after is to marry my one true love.

You don't have to tell me anything. I heard enough last night.

You heard what I said? Every word.

Especially, "Who could love such a hideous, ugly beast?"

But I thought that wouldn't matter to you.

Yeah? Well, it does!

Oh...

Right on time. Princess, I've brought you a little something.

Whoa, plastic horse.

He's plastic. He's hollow.

Princess Fiona... As promised. Now about my swamp...

Cleared out, as agreed, the deed has been put in your name.

Now step away before I change my mind.

Forgive me, Princess, for startling you.

I am Lord Farquaad. Lord Farquaad.

Forgive me, for I was just saying a short...

Hm?

...farewell. Oh!

That is so sweet, but you don't have to waste good manners on the ogre.

It's not like it has feelings.

No, you're right, it doesn't.

Princess Fiona, beautiful, fair, flawless Fiona.

I ask your hand in marriage.

Will you be the perfect bride for the perfect groom?

Lord Farquaad, I accept. Nothing would make me...

Excellent! I'll start the plans, for tomorrow we wed!

No! I mean, why wait?

Let's get married today. Before sunset.

Oh. Anxious, are we? You're right. The sooner the better.

There's so much to do! Captain, ride ahead. Tell them it's a Code Red!

We'll be married by sunset!

Oh, man, there's nothing like a good night's sleep. Oh!

What did I miss? Fare thee well, ogre.

Shrek! Shrek, what are you doing? You're letting her get away!

Look, there's something you don't know! I talked to her last night and...

Yeah, I know you talked to her last night.

You two are great pals, aren't you? So why don't you follow her home?

But Shrek, I want to go home with you. Hey, I told you already, I live alone! My swamp, me! Nobody else, understand?!

Just when you think life can't get any worse, you get evicted from a swamp!

Yeah, I really thought that ogre was gonna help us.

He still might! Maybe if we all close our eyes and clap really hard!

Oh, grow up. I won't grow up!

You're 34 and need a shave.

Oh, yeah!

Am I wrong? Where to now?

Forty miles north, they said. There's landfill with our names on it.

Landfill? Are you kidding me?

What's next, a dunghill? A septic tank?

How low do we need to go, people?

It's time to do what we should've done a long time ago!

We got to stand up to Farquaad ourselves!

Yeah, Gingy's right!

We need to get off our fluffy butts and do something!

Wait a minute!

Now, look, maybe that ogre wasn't the answer, but something better will come along, and we have to wait for it, because that is what fairy-tale creatures do.

We wait for miracles. We wish upon stars!

Why, my cricket always told me... Oh, forget that cricket!

If he was so smart, he would've seen that windshield coming!

No, no! We just need to lay low until this all blows over.

None of this would've happened if I were a real boy!

To Duloc!

Come on, you guys! That's right!

Whoo! Come on! Ha-ha!

Whoo!

Donkey? What are you doing?

Oh, I would think you of all people would recognize a wall when you saw one!

Well, yeah. But the wall is supposed to go around my swamp, not through it.

It is around your half. See? That's your half, this is my half.

Your half? Yes, my half.

I helped rescue the princess, I did half the work, I get half the booty.

Back off. No, you back off.

Stubborn jackass! Smelly ogre!

This is my swamp!

There you go, "My, my, my! Me, me, me!" Well, guess what?

Now it's my turn, so you just shut up and pay attention.

You are mean to me.

You insult me and you do not appreciate anything I do.

You're always pushing me around or pushing me away!

You're so wrapped up in layers, onion boy, you're afraid of your own feelings!

Well, if I treated you so badly, why did you come back?

Because that's what friends do, they forgive each other!

Go away!

There you are doing it again! Just like you did to Fiona!

All she ever did was like you. Maybe even love you!

Love me? She said I was ugly!

A hideous creature! I heard the two of you talking!

She wasn't talking about you! She was talking about hersel...

...someone else.

She wasn't talking about me? Well then, who was she talking about?

No, sir. I ain't saying nothing.

You don't wanna listen to me, right? Right?

Donkey! No.

OK, look, I'm sorry, all right?

I'm sorry.

I guess I am just a big, stupid, ugly ogre.

Can you forgive me?

Hey, that's what friends are for, right?

Right.

Friends? Oh! Friends!

So, what did Fiona say about me?

What are you asking me for? Why don't you just go ask her?

Donkey! The wedding!

We'll never make it in time! I know someone who can help!


People of Duloc, we gather here today to bear witness to the union of our new king and queen.

And as the warm glow of this setting sun lifts our heads, so too does the...

Excuse me. Could we just skip to the "I do's"?

What? Uh, yeah. Go on, go on.

Right, well then, do you, Lord Farquaad, take Princess Fiona?

I do. And do you...

I do. Yes, I thought you might.

Well, then, by the power vested in me...

Stop the wedding! Shrek?

What does he want? Really, it's rude enough being alive when no one wants you, but showing up uninvited to a wedding?

Fiona, I need to talk to you. Oh, now you want to talk?

Well, it's a little late for that, so if you'll excuse me...

But you can't marry him! And why not?

Because he's just marrying you so he can be king.

That is outrageous!

Fiona, don't listen to him. He's not your true love.

And what do you know about true love?

Well... I...

Um...

Oh... Oh...

Aw...

Well, this is precious. Huh? Hm?

The ogre has fallen in love with the princess. Oh, good Lord.

Mm! Guards, take this abomination out of my sight!

No!

I mean...

Let's hear what the monster has to say. It might be worth a laugh.

Oh, you are awful.

Well, you heard her, ogre. Express yourself. Hm?

With as few grunts as possible.

Right. OK.

We've taken your abuse for the last time, Farquaad!

Well, no more! It ends today!

Power to the piggies! We demand our homes back!

And our rightful place in Duloc! Right, guys?

Yeah! How dare you freaks interrupt my wedding?

Freaks, huh?

Well, I guess it takes one to know one.

What? Be prepared to have your mind blown.

Hi-ho! Daddy! Oh, Daddy.

I suppose my invitation was lost in the mail?

Well, maybe if you hadn't abandoned me in the woods!

Abandoned you? You were 28 and living in my basement!

Loser.

People of Duloc, your leader is a half ling!

No! No, no, no. Don't listen to him.

Just like all of us. Not a freak! Not a freak!

I'm a big, tall, giant man with a kingdom!

Stop the wedding! Whoa!

Fiona?

I wanted to show you before.

Well, uh...

...that explains a lot.

Ew. Ew, ah!

Ugh! Ugh! It's disgusting! Guards! Guards! Guards!

All this hocus-pocus alters nothing!

This marriage is binding and that makes me king! See? Ha-ha!

As for you, my wife, I'll have you locked back in that tower for the rest of your days.

No, actually, you won't.

What are you doing, you insolent beast? I'll see you drawn and quartered!

I am king! I will have order!

Nobody move! I got a dragon here, and I'm not afraid to use it!

I'm a donkey on the edge!

Fiona, I love you. Really?

Really, really.

I love you, too.

Aw! Yay!

"By day one way, by night another, this shall be the norm, until you find true love's first kiss and then take love's true form... then take love's true form."
