    Princess Fiona: Please. I would'st look upon the face of my rescuer.

    Shrek: Oh, no, you wouldn't... tst.

    Princess Fiona: But... how will you kiss me?

    Shrek: [bangs his head] What? That wasn't in the job description!

    The Donkey: Maybe it's a perk!

    Princess Fiona: No, it's destiny! You must know how it goes! The Knight rescues the Princess, and then they share true love's first kiss...

    Princess Fiona: [as ogre] I'm UGLY! Okay?

    Donkey: Yeah! What was it, something you ate? I told Shrek those weedrats were a bad idea!

    Princess Fiona: No. it's... it's been this way as long as I can remember.

    Donkey: What d'you mean? Look, I ain't never seen you like this before!

    Princess Fiona: It only happens when the sun goes down.

    [looks at her reflection in a water barrel]

    Princess Fiona: "By night one way, by day another / Thus shall be the norm / Till you receive true love's kiss / then, take love's true form."

    Donkey: Oh, that's beautiful. I didn't know you wrote poetry.

    Princess Fiona: It's a spell! When I was a little girl, a witch cast a spell on me. Every night I become this, this horrible ugly beast! I was placed in the tower to await the day when my true love would rescue me. That's why I have to marry Lord Farquaad before the sun sets, and he sees me... like this.

    [starts sobbing]

    Donkey: All right, all right, calm down. It's not so bad. You're not that ugly... well, you are. I ain't gonna lie, you ARE ugly. But you only look like this at night, Shrek's ugly 24/7!

    Princess Fiona: But Donkey, I'm a princess! And this is not how a princess is supposed to look!

    Donkey: How about you don't marry Farquaad?

    Princess Fiona: I have to. Only the true love's kiss can break the spell.

    Donkey: Well, you're kind of an ogre. And you and Shrek, well, you got a lot in common.

    Princess Fiona: Shrek?

    Shrek: Well, they're also great in stews. Now I don't mean to brag, but I make a MEAN weedrat stew!

    [They both look over at the kingdom of Duloc]

    Princess Fiona: I guess I'll be dining a little differently tomorrow night...

    Shrek: Maybe you can come visit me in the swamp sometime... I'll cook all kinds of stuff for you: swamp toad soup, fish-eye tartar, you name it!

    Princess Fiona: I'd like that...

    [he sucks up a weedrat tail, and awkwardly laughs. She smiles back at him, and their eyes meet. In the background, a love ballad, "You Belong To Me," plays]

    Princess Fiona: Yes... Shrek?

    Shrek: I... um... I was wondering... are you... um... are you going to eat that?

    [Donkey leers at Fiona]

    Princess Fiona: ...Dead!

  • Princess Fiona: Well, when one lives alone, one has to learns these things in case there's...

    [Fiona looks at herself, and sees she is still an ogre]

    Princess Fiona: [nods] Mmmh-hmm

  • Princess Fiona: I wanted to show you before...

    Princess Fiona: Why... yes!

    The Donkey: Don't worry, princess. I used to be afraid of the dark until... No, wait. I'm still afraid of the dark.

    Shrek: Be...

    King: He-ere.

    [Shrek and Fiona bow their heads in assent]

    Queen: Harold...

    King: I'm sorry, Lillian - I just wish I could be the man that you deserve...

    Queen: [taking him in her hand] You're more that man today than you ever were - warts and all...

  • King: [Donkey sits at the table] No, no! Bad donkey! Bad! Down!

    Princess Fiona: Dad, it's alright, it's alright. He's with us. He helped rescue me from the dragon.

  • Princess Fiona: Is that glitter on your lips?

    Prince Charming: Mmm, cherry flavored. Want a taste?

  • Princess Fiona: They just want to give us their blessing.

    Shrek: Oh, great! Now I need their blessing?

    Princess Fiona: Well, if you want to be part of this family, yes.

    Shrek: Who said I want to be part of this family?

    Princess Fiona: Uh... you did? When you married me?

    Shrek: Well, there's some fine print for ya.

  • Princess Fiona: Shrek?

    Puss-in-Boots: For you, baby, I could be.

  • Queen: So, Fiona. Tell us about where you live.

    Princess Fiona: Well, Shrek owns his own land. Don't you, honey?

    Shrek: Yes. It's in an... enchanted forest, abundant in squirrels, and cute little duckies...

    Donkey: What?


    Donkey: I know you ain't talking about the swamp.

    Shrek: Donkey!

    King: An ogre from a swamp. How original.

    Queen: I guess that will be a fine place to raise the children.

    King: B-b-but the whole kingdom's turned out to celebrate your marriage!

    Princess Fiona: There's just one problem - that's not my husband. I mean, look at him!

    [they both watch Charming, showing off in front of everyone]

    King: Yes, he is a bit different, but people do change for the ones they love - you'd be surprised how much I changed for your mother...

    Princess Fiona: *Change*? He's completely lost his mind!

    King: Darling, why not come down to the ball and give him another chance - I mean, you might find you like this new Shrek...

    Princess Fiona: But it's the *old* one I fell in love with, Dad - I'd give anything to have him back...

    [she reaches for her tea... ]

    King: [taking her cup] Darling, that's mine! Decaf... otherwise I'm up all night!

    [Fiona drinks the normal cup of tea]

  • Princess Fiona: You're acting like a... a...

    Shrek: Go on, say it.

    Princess Fiona: Like an ogre!

    Shrek: Well, guess what? Whether your parents like it or not, I *am* an ogre!

    [roars at the dog to shut it up]

    Shrek: And guess what, princess? That's not about to change.

    Princess Fiona: I've made changes for you, Shrek. Think about that.

    [she leaves]

    Donkey: That's real smooth, Shrek. "I'm an ogre! Arrr!"

  • King: So I suppose any grandchildren I could expect from you would be...

    Shrek: Ogres! Yes!

    Queen: Not that there's anything wrong with that. Right, Harold?

    King: Oh, no, no. Of course not! That's assuming you don't eat your own young!

    Princess Fiona: You did.

    Shrek: No. It was you who rescued me.

  • Princess Fiona: And when the smoke clears... Wait, what's this?

    Cookie: That's my chimichanga stand.

    Princess Fiona: Um, no, Cookie. We won't be needing that.

    Cookie: Trust me, Fiona. Y'all gonna be really hungry after this ambush, OK? Now go and finish your little speech.

  • [Shrek stormed out of the party and Fiona follows him outside]

    Princess Fiona: Unbelievable!

    Shrek: Tell me about it! Those villagers are...

    Princess Fiona: I'm not talking about the villagers, Shrek. I'm talking about you! Is this really how you want to remember the kids' first birthday?

    Shrek: Oh great, so this is all my fault!

    Princess Fiona: Yes! But, you know what? Let's talk about this after the party at home.

    Shrek: You mean that roadside attraction we live in? STEP RIGHT UP! SEE THE DANCING OGRE! DON'T WORRY, HE WON'T BITE! I used to be an ogre. Now, I'm just a jolly green joke!

    Princess Fiona: Okay okay, maybe you're not the ogre you used to be, but maybe that's not such a bad thing!

    Shrek: Ah, I wouldn't expect you to understand. It's not like you're a real ogre. You spent half your life in a palace.

    Princess Fiona: And the other half locked away in a tower!

    Shrek: [sigh] Look, all I want is for things to go back to the way they used to be. Back when the villagers were afraid of me and I can take a mudbath in peace. When I could do what I wanted, when I wanted to do it. Back when the world made sense!

    Princess Fiona: You mean back before you rescued me from the dragon's keep?

    Shrek: Exactly!

    Princess Fiona: [looks at Shrek in shock] Shrek. You have three beautiful children. A wife who loves you. Friends who adore you. You have everything! Why is it that the only person who can't see that is you?

    [Fiona goes back inside for the party]

    Shrek: That's just great!

    [walks away]

  • Snow White: Right! Ladies, assume the position!

    [Sleeping Beauty falls asleep, Snow White lies down in her coffin pose, and Cinderella seats herself on the floor gazing dreamily into space]

    Princess Fiona: What are you doing?

    Sleeping Beauty: [Snaps awake] Waiting to be rescued.

    [falls back asleep]

  • Queen Lillian: [smashes wall with her head]

    Princess Fiona: Mom?

    Queen Lillian: What? You didn't think you inherited your fighting skills from your father?

  • Princess Fiona: [after learning that Rapunzel is dating Prince Charming] Rapunzel! How could you?

    Rapunzel: Jealous, much?

  • Shrek: Good morning.

    Princess Fiona: Good morning. Ooh, morning breath.
