Shrek

Synopsis: Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek (Mike Myers) whose precious solitude is suddenly shattered by an invasion of annoying fairy tale characters. They were all banished from their kingdom by the evil Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow). Determined to save their home -- not to mention his -- Shrek cuts a deal with Farquaad and sets out to rescue Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) to be Farquaad's bride. Rescuing the Princess may be small compared to her deep, dark secret.

OLD WOMAN:

Well, I've got a talking donkey.

HEAD GUARD:

Right. Well, that's good for ten shillings,

if you can prove it.

OLD WOMAN:

Oh, go ahead, little fella.

Donkey just looks up at her.

HEAD GUARD:

Well?

OLD WOMAN:

Oh, oh, he's just...he's just a little

nervous. He's really quite a chatterbox.

Talk, you boneheaded dolt...

HEAD GUARD:

That's it. I've heard enough. Guards!

OLD WOMAN:

No, no, he talks! He does. (pretends

to be Donkey) I can talk. I love to

talk. I'm the talkingest damn thing

you ever saw.

HEAD GUARD:

Get her out of my sight.

OLD WOMAN:

No, no! I swear! Oh! He can talk!

The guards grab the old woman and she struggles with them. One

of her legs flies out and kicks Tinkerbell out of Peter Pan's

hands, and her cage drops on Donkey's head. He gets sprinkled

with fairy dust and he's able to fly.

DONKEY:

Hey! I can fly!
