Yes, Daddy?

I know I made many mistakes with you.

It's okay.

But your love for Shrek has...

...taught me so much.

My dear boy...

...I am proud to call you my son.

And I'm proud to call you my frog...

...King dad-in-law.

Now there is a matter

of business to attend to.

The Frog King... is dead.

Put your hat back on, fool.


...please come hither.

Yeah, Dad?

This kingdom needs a new king.

You and Fiona

are next in line for the throne.


Next in line. You see, Dad,

that's why people love you.

Even on your deathbed,

you're still making jokes.

Oh, come on, Dad. An ogre as king?

I don't think that's such a good idea.

There's gotta be somebody else.


Aside from you, there is

only one remaining heir.

Really? Who is he, Dad?

His name is...

What's his name? What's his name?


His name is Arthur.


I know you'll do...

...what's right.


Dad? Dad!


Do your thing, man.

When you were young and your heart

Was an open book

You used to say live and let live

You know you did, you know you did

You know you did

But if this ever changing world

In which we live in

Makes you give in and cry

Say live and let die

Live and let die

Hey, lady

You, lady

Cursing at your life

You're a discontented mother

And a regimented wife

What does a prince

have to do to get a drink here?

Ah, Mabel!

Why they call you an ugly stepsister,

I'll never know.

Where's Doris? Taking the night off?

She's not welcome here,

and neither are you.

What do you want, Charming?

Not much. Just a chance at redemption.

And a Fuzzy Navel.

And Fuzzy Navels for all my friends!

We're not your friends.

You don't belong here.

You're absolutely right,

but, I mean, do any of us?

Do a number on his face.

Wait, wait, wait!
