It ain't ogre– til it's ogre. (taglines)


[As Rumpelstiltskin angrily scrunches up a page from a library book about Shrek]
Pinocchio: Uh, sir? You’re gonna have to pay for that.
Rumpelstiltskin: Uh, m-m-maybe we can make a deal for it, little boy?
Pinocchio: Oh, I'm not a real boy.
Rumpelstiltskin: [looking devious] Do you want to be?
Pinocchio: [kicks him out of the library] Nobody needs your deals anymore, Grumpel Stinkypants! [closes the door]
Rumpelstiltskin: [coughs, and looks at the ripped page of the ogre family in anger] I wish that ogre was never born!

Butterpants: Do the roar.
Shrek: Uh, roar.
Butterpants: [unimpressed] I don't like it.

Fiona: Unbelievable!
Shrek: Tell me about it! Those villagers–
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?!
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? [mimicking the tour guide] "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! [throws down the party hat]
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 is not like you're a real ogre. You spent half your life in a palace.
Fiona: [solemnly] And the other half locked away in a tower.
Shrek: [sighs] Look, all I want is for things to go back to the way they used to be. Back when villagers were afraid of me, and I can take a mud bath in peace. When I could do what I wanted, when I wanted to do it. Back when the world made sense.
Fiona: [sharply] You mean back before you rescued me from the Dragon's Keep? (Like you wished it never happened?)
Shrek: Exactly!
Fiona: [widens her eyes in great shock, not believing what her husband just said to her; solemnly] Shrek, you have 3 beautiful children, a wife who loves you, friends who adore you. You have everything. Why is it the only person who can't see that is you?
[Shrek doesn't respond; Fiona heads back inside the party, but before she gets in, she glances back to Shrek who just glared at her furiously. She sadly closes the door, leaving the stubborn ogre alone]
Shrek: That's just great. [leaves]

Rumpel: So, you're not gonna eat me?
Shrek: No, thanks. I already had a big bowl of curly-toed weirdo for breakfast.

Shrek: Alright. I knew it. So what do you want?
Stiltskin: A day.
Shrek: A day?
Stiltskin: Ooh, rat's done!

Shrek: You witches are making a big mistake! I know my rights!
Pumpkin Witch: You have the right to shut your mouth! [drops a pumpkin which explodes with smoke in Shrek's face]

Stiltskin: You gave me a day from your past, a day you wouldn't even remember, a day when you were an innocent, mindless, little baby. [starts scatting "Happy Birthday"]
Shrek: [shocked] You took the day I was born.
Stiltskin: No, Shrek, you gave it to me.

Shrek: [about ogres using their noses as a horn] I didn't know we could do that.

Shrek: Donkey, get off of with me! Watch your with a pointy hooves!

Donkey: Why don't you just tell her what you told me? You know, about how you are her true love and you came from an alternate universe.
Shrek: [sarcastically] Oh, and while I'm at it, why don't I tell her that you're married to a fire breathing dragon, and you have little mutant donkey-dragon babies?
Donkey: I do?!
Shrek: You saw what happened, she's gonna think I'm crazy.
Donkey [not listening] I'm a daddy?!
Shrek: [spots the frog] You know what? If I got Fiona to kiss me once... [blows into a frog's mouth, inflating it like a balloon] Then I can do it again.

Shrek: [enters Fiona's tent] Hello? Fiona?
Puss: [green eyes are shown in the shadows of a cat condo] You should not be here, señor.
Shrek: Puss? [Puss struggles to get out of his resting place, revealing himself as now overweight with a pink bow on wrapped around the back of his neck] You have gotta be kiddin' me.
[Puss lowers down on the scratching post, slowly, then lands on his back on a pillow. He then struggles to get up, followed by facing Shrek]
Puss: Feed me, if you dare.
Shrek: Puss, what happened to you?! You got so fa... [as he goes to say "fat", Puss gives him a look] Fancy!
Puss: Do I know you?
Shrek: Well, where is your hat and your belt? [gasps softly] And your wee little boots?
Puss: Boots, for a cat? [laughs]
Shrek: But you're Puss in Boots.
Puss: Maybe once. [opens a bottle of milk] But that is a name I have outgrown.
Shrek: [under his breath] That's not the only thing you have outgrown.
Puss: Hey! I may have let myself go a little since retirement, but hanging up my sword was the best decision of my life! I have all the cream I can drink and all the mice I can chase. [a mouse runs up to his bowl and starts drinking out of it] Eh, I'll get him later. [starts drinking out of the bowl himself]
Shrek: Oh, Puss, what have I done to you? You've gone soft.
Puss: Well, I do get brushed twice a day.

Puss: Come on, Donkey, ¡¡vamonos!!
Donkey: Man, you are a cat-tastrophe!!
Puss: And you, are ri-donkey-lous!!
[Beat; then both laugh]

Shrek: Stop! Where are you going?!
Fiona: To save my friends!
Shrek: How, by getting yourself killed?!
Fiona: If that is what it takes!
Shrek: Puss, say something!
Fiona: [suspiciously] Puss?!
Puss: Eh, let me explain.
Fiona: So that's how you knew so much about me.
Shrek: Fiona, wait! [jumping in front of her] Kiss me!
Fiona: What?!
Shrek: It's the only way to save your friends, Fiona!
Fiona: Get out of my way, honey! [walks past him]
Shrek: You used to believe that a single kiss could solve everything!
[Fiona turns around and reluctantly kisses him. However, when they are done kissing, nothing happens, to Shrek is confusion. Fiona, indifferent, wipes her mouth]
Shrek: [doesn't believe this] I don't understand. [frustrated] This doesn't make any sense! True love's kiss was supposed to fix everything!
Fiona: Yeah, well, you know what? That's what they told me too. True love didn't get me out of that tower. I did! I saved myself! Don't you get it?! It's all just a big fairy tale!
Shrek: [pleading] Fiona, don't say that, it does exist!
Fiona: And how would you know?! Did you grow up locked away in a dragon's keep?! [voice cracked] Did you live all alone in a miserable tower?! Did you cry yourself to sleep every night waiting true love that NEVER CAME?!
Shrek: [shocked] But... I'm your true love.
Fiona: Then where were you when I needed you?
[Shrek, stunned and full of guilt, can not bring himself to answer. Fiona turns around and leaves]
Donkey: Maybe you kissed her... wrong?
Shrek: No. The kiss didn't work... because Fiona doesn't love me.

Shrek: What are you-- Bad Donkey! Mustn't! I said don't! Don't! No! GET AWAY FROM IT!!!!! You did.

Puss: It seems that we are safe.
Donkey: Yeah, it looks a lot less pitchforky and torchy out there. Let's go.
Shrek: [bitterly] Oh, what's the point? The kiss didn't work. It's over.
Donkey: Look, Shrek, I know things might seem a little bleak right now, but things always work themselves out in the end. You'll see. Well, I'll bet by this time tomorrow-
Shrek: [angrily] Hey, don't you understand?! There is no tomorrow, there's no day after that, and there's no day after that, day after that! My life was perfect, and I'm never gonna get it back!
Donkey: Well, if your life was so perfect, then why did you sign it all the way to Rumpelstiltskin in the first place?
Shrek: Because I didn't know what I had until it was gone, alright?! [sighs, deeply remorseful now] I didn't know what I had...

Shrek: Donkey! [as Donkey opens his real eyes] (I'm not listening to eyeballs noses and) I hate to pull you away from your adoring public, but I’m not getting anywhere with Fiona.

Shrek: Stiltskin!
[Rumpelstiltskin jumped up and looked back, seeing Shrek wander through the aisle]
Shrek: I hear you're looking for me.
Rumpelstiltskin: All right! Finally! [calls out and looks around] Who turned him in? Who gets the deal of a lifetime?
Shrek: I do.
[He took the 'deal of a lifetime' contract out of Rumpelstiltskin's hand]
Rumpelstiltskin: What?! But--
Shrek: If I'm turning myself in, I get the deal of a lifetime.
[He plucked a feather from Fifi and dipped in the magic ink jar]
Shrek: That means you have to give me anything I want.
[The scared villain leaped onto the table, stopping him signing it]
Rumpelstiltskin: No, no, no! Only true love's kiss can break your contract! So if you thought you were just gonna [mimicks walking] doot-doot-doot in here and get your life back--
Shrek: I'm not here to get my life back.
Rumpelstiltskin: [with a glare] Then what DO you want?

Rumpelstiltskin: I don't know. Not much of a storybook ending. [mockingly] The noble Shrek turns himself in to save a bunch of filthy ogres.
[The witches shackles Shrek with chains]
Shrek: All that matters is that they're free, and Fiona is safe.
Stiltskin: Awww, I bet Fiona would be really touched to hear that, but, hey, I guess you can tell her yourself. [He and the cackling witches turned to reveal Fiona, shackled as well, struggling to get out]
Shrek: Fiona!
[Both ogres rushed to each other, but the weight of the shackles and chains held them back. They tried breaking free from them to no avail, and Rumpelstiltskin only cackled maniacally as he watched the two ogres struggle to reach each other in failed attempts to his pure wicked amusement]
Shrek: Stiltskin, we had a deal! You agreed to free all ogres!
Rumpelstiltskin: [uncaring tone] Oh, yeah. [slyly] But Fiona isn't all ogre, is she?

He gave a smug, evil smirk. Shrek's face faltered as he looked over at Fiona worryingly.

Stiltskin: By day, one way, by night, another. Blardy, blardy, blar. Ha ha!
[He skipped merrily out of the room in triumph]
Rumpelstiltskin: [triumphantly] Nobody's smart but me!
[He and the laughing witches left the room, closing the doors and leaving the two prisoners alone. Shrek gave a solemn sad look]
Fiona: That was a really brave thing you did, Shrek. Thank you.
Shrek: [sullenly] No, you were right. I wasn't there for you, and not just at the dragon's keep, but... everyday since.
Fiona: [smiles softly] Well, you're here now.

[During the main event]
Donkey: ♪ Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall. All you've got to do is call. ♪ [Rumpelstiltskin and the witches hear and spot him on top of the new hanging chandelier ball] ♪ And I'll be there. Yeah, yeah, yeah! ♪
Shrek: Donkey?
Donkey: And Puss!
Puss: [descends down the chandelier ball's rope, now wearing his boots, belt, hat and cape] In Boots!

[last lines]
Shrek: You know, I always thought I rescued you from the Dragon's Keep.
Fiona: You did.
Shrek: No. It was you that rescued me.
[Fiona beams, before the two share a kiss]
