PRINCESS FIONA: You did it! You rescued me! You're amazing. You're, you're wonderful. You're a little unorthodox I'll admit. But thy deed is great, and thine heart is pure. I am eernally in your debt. And
where would a brave knight be without his noble steed?
DONKEY: I hope you heard that. She called me a noble steed. She think I'm a steed.
PRINCESS FIONA: The battle is won. You may remove your helmet, good Sir Knight.
SHREK: Uh, no.
PRINCESS FIONA: Why not?
SHREK: I have helmet hair.
PRINCESS FIONA: Please. I would'st look upon the face of my rescuer.
SHREK: No, no, you wouldn't.
PRINCESS FIONA: But how will you kiss me?
SHREK: What? That wasn't in the job description.
DONKEY: Maybe it's a perk.
PRINCESS FIONA: No, it's destiny. Oh, you must know how it goes. A princess locked in a tower and beset by a dragon is rescued by a brave knight, and then they share true love's first kiss.
DONKEY: Hmm? With Shrek? You think. Wait. Wait. You think that Shrek is you true love?
PRINCESS FIONA: Well, yes.
DONKEY: You think Shrek is your true love!
PRINCESS FIONA: What is so funny?
SHREK: Let's just say I'm not your tipe, okay?
PRINCESS FIONA: Of course, you are. You're my rescuer. Now, Now remove your helmet.
SHREK: Look. I really don't think this is a good idea.
PRINCESS FIONA: Just take off the helmet.
SHREK: I'm not going to.
PRINCESS FIONA: Take ot off.
PRINCESS FIONA: Now!
SHREK: Okay! Easy. As you command. Your Highness.
PRINCESS FIONA: You. You're a, an ogre.
SHREK: Oh, you were expecting Prince Charming.
PRINCESS FIONA: Well, yes, actually. Oh, no. This is all wrong. You're not supposed to be an ogre.
SHREK: Princess, I was sent to rescue you by Lord Farquaad, okay? He is the one who wants to marry you.
PRINCESS FIONA: Then why didn't he come rescue me?
SHREK: Good question. You should ask him that when we get there.
PRINCESS FIONA: But I have to be rescued by my true love, not by some ogre and his, his pet.
DONKEY: So much for noble steed.
SHREK: You're not making my job any easier.
PRINCESS FIONA: I'm sorry, but your job is not my problem. You can tell Lord Farquaad that if he wants to rescue me properly, I'll be waiting for him right here.
SHREK: Hey! I'm no one's messenger boy, all right? I'm a delivery boy.
PRINCESS FIONA: You wouldn't dare. Put me down!
SHREK: Ya comin', Donkey?
DONKEY: I'm right behind ya.
PRINCESS FIONA: Put me down, or you will suffer the consequences! This is not dignified! Put me down!
DONKEY: Okay, so here's another question. Say there's a woman that digs you, right, but you don't really like her that way. How do you let her down real easy so her feelings aren't hurt, but you don't get burned to a crisp and eaten?
PRINCESS FIONA: You just tell her she's not your true love. Everyone knowest what happens when you find your. Hey! The sooner we get to DuLoc the better.
DONKEY: You're gonna love it there, Princess. It's beautiful!
PRINCESS FIONA: And what of my groom-to-be? Lord Farquaad? What's he like?
SHREK: Let me put it this way, Princess. Men of Farquaad's stature are in short supply.
DONKEY: I don't know. There are those who think little of him.
PRINCESS FIONA: Stop it. Stop it, both of you. You're just jealous you can never measure up to a great ruler like Lord Farquaad.
SHREK: Yeah, well, maybe you're right, Princess. But I'll let you do the "measuring" when you see him tomorrow.
PRINCESS FIONA: Tomorrow? It'll take that long? Shouldn't we stop to make camp?
SHREK: No, that'll take longer. We can keep going.
PRINCESS FIONA: But there's robbers in the woods.
DONKEY: Whoa! Time out, Shrek! Camping's starting to sound good.
SHREK: Hey, come on. I'm scarier than anything we're going to see in this forest.
PRINCESS FIONA: I need to find somewhere to camp now!
SHREK: Hey! Over here.
DONKEY: Shrek, we can do better than that. I don't think this is fit for a princess.
PRINCESS FIONA: No, no, it's perfect. It just needs a few homey touches.
SHREK: Homey touches? Like what?
PRINCESS FIONA: A door? Well, gentlemen, I bid thee good night.
DONKEY: You want me to read you a bedtime story? I will.
PRINCESS FIONA: I said good night!
DONKEY: Shrek, What are you doing?
SHREK: I just. You know. Oh, come on. I was just kidding.
SHREK: And, uh, that one, that's Throwback, the only ogre to ever spit over three wheat fields.
DONKEY: Right. Yeah. Hey, can you tell my future from these stars?
SHREK: The stars don't tell the future, Donkey. They tell stories. Look, there's Bloodnut, the Flatulent. You can guess what he's famous for.
DONKEY: I know you're making this up.
SHREK: No, look. There he is, and there's the group of hunters running away from his stench.
DONKEY: That ain't nothin' but a bunch of little dots.
SHREK: You know, Donkey, sometimes things are more than they appear. Hmm? Forget it.
DONKEY: Hey, Shrek, what we gonna do when we get our swamp anyway?
SHREK: Our swamp?
DONKEY: You know, when we're through rescuing the princess.
SHREK: We? Donkey, there's no "we". There's no "our". There's just me and my swamp. The first thing I'm gonna do is build a ten-foot wall arond my land.
DONKEY: You cut me deep, Shrek. You cut me real deep just now. You know what I think? I think this whole wall thing is just a way to keep somebody out.
SHREK: No, do ya think?
DONKEY: Are you hidin' something?
SHREK: Never mind, Donkey.
DONKEY: Oh, this is another one of those onion things, isn't it?
SHREK: No, this is one of those drop-it and leave-it alone things.
DONKEY: Why don't you want to talk about it?
SHREK: Why do you want to talk about it?
DONKEY: Why are you blocking?
SHREK: I'm not blocking.
DONKEY: Oh, yes, you are.
SHREK: Donkey, I'm warning you.
DONKEY: Who you trying to keep out?
SHREK: Everyone! Okay?
DONKEY: Oh, now we're gettin' somewhere.
SHREK: Oh! For the love of Pete!
DONKEY: What's your problem? What you got against the whole world anyway?
SHREK: Look, I'm not the one with the problem, okay? It's the world that seems to have a problem with me. People take one look at me and go. "Aah! Help! Run! A big, stupid, ugly ogre!" They judge me before they even know me. That's why I'm better off alone.
DONKEY: You know what? When we met, I didn't think you was just a big, stupid, ugly ogre.
SHREK: Yeah, I know.
DONKEY: So, uh, are there any donkeys up there?
SHREK: Well, there's, um, Gabby, the Small and Annoying.
DONKEY: Okay, okay, I see it now. The big shiny one, right there. That one there?
SHREK: That's the moon.
DONKEY: Oh, okay.
LORD FARQUAAD: Again, show me again. Mirror, mirror, show her to me. Show me the princess.
MAGIC MIRROR: Hmph.
LORD FARQUAAD: Ah. Perfect.
