- [to Donkey] There's a stack of freshly made waffles in the middle of the forest! Don't you find that a wee bit suspicious?
- Okay, I know you don't remember me, but we got married. And at the birthday party with some pigs and a puppet, the villagers and this boy kept saying "Do the roar, do the roar!" Then I punched the cake that the pigs ate, and the next thing I knew, my donkey fell in your waffle hole.
- Fiona, I know everything about you. I know you sing so beautifully that birds explode. I know that when you sign your name, you put a heart over the I. I know that when you see a shooting star, you cross your fingers on both hands, squinch up your nose, and you make a wish. I know that you don't like the covers wrapped around your feet, and I know that you sleep by candlelight because every time you close your eyes, you're afraid you're going to wake up back in that tower. But mostly importantly, Fiona. I know that the reason that you turn human every day is because you've never been kissed. Well, by me.
- [to Fiona] 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 could 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!
- [to Fiona; while disappearing since his "day" is almost over] You know what the best part of today was? I got the chance to fall in love with you all over again.
- Please eat my face last and send my hooves to my momma!
- Are my kids cute or do they make people uncomfortable?
- Quiet, ogre! You're gonna get me in trouble and I need this job. I am not going back to work for Old MacDonald! Tell me to E-I-E-I-O. "E-I-E-I-No!" That's what I said.
- Help! I'm bein' ass-napped!
- [after seeing a plate of waffles, being used as bait] Yeah! Waffles! And I thought the Waffle-Fairy was just a bedtime story!
- HAPPY OGRE DAY!!!!
- "By night one way, by day another." Blah-di-blah-di-blah!
- Nobody's smart but me!
- Get them, witches!
- [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 wanna be?
- [Cut to Pinocchio kicking Rumpel out]
- Pinocchio: NOBODY NEEDS YOUR DEALS ANYMORE, RUMPLE STINKY-PANTS!
- Donkey: Man, you are a cat-tastrophe.
- Puss in Boots: And you, are ri-donk-ulous.
- [Both laugh]
- Donkey: Why don't you just tell her what you told me? You know, about how you're her true love and you came from an alternate universe.
- Shrek: 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 going to think I'm crazy.
- Donkey: [Not listening] I'm a daddy?
- [Shrek meets the obese Puss]
- Puss: Feed me, if you dare.
- Shrek: Puss, what happened to you?! You got so fa... [Puss raises his eyebrow] fa... ncy!
- Puss: Do I know you?
- Shrek: Well, where's your hat? Where's your belt? [gasps softly] Your wee little boots?
- Puss: Boots? For a cat? [laughs dryly]
- Shrek: But you're Puss in Boots.
- Puss: Maybe once. But that is a name I have outgrown.
- Shrek: [wryly] That's not the only thing you've 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]
Villagers with torches and pitchforks form a mob and chase after Shrek.
- Mob: We must find Shrek! Shrek! Shrek! Shrek!
- Woman: Hey, get back where you came from!
- Rumpelstiltskin: You're not going to eat me?
- Shrek: I already had a big bowl of curly-toed weirdo for breakfast.
- Butterpants: Do the roar!
- Shrek: [unenthusiastically] Roar.
- Butterpants: I don't like it.
- [Last lines]
- Shrek: You know, I always thought I'd rescued you from the Dragon's Keep.
- Princess Fiona: You did.
- Shrek: No, it was you who rescued me.
- Princess Fiona: "Watch the cake.....I'll go get them.
- Shrek: "Watch the cake?" (he notices the cake had been eaten up by the 3 Little Pigs) where's the cake?"
- 1st Little Pig: We ate the cake...
- 2nd Little Pig: Ja...
- Shrek: "What?!?"
- Fergus: [Crying And Wailing]
- Shrek: "No... don't cry."
- Fiona: Shrek? Are you okay?
- - [all chanting] Shrek! Shrek! Shrek!
- - [yells]
Shrek smashes the cake with his fist.
