A little priest.

Interprétée par Johnny Depp et Helena Bonham Carter.

(Mrs Lovett)
That’s all very well, but what are we gonna do about him ?

(Sweeney Todd)
Later on when it’s dark, we’ll take it to some secret place and bury him.

(Mrs Lovett)
Oh yeah. Of course we could do that.
I don’t ‘spose he’s got any relatives gonna come pokin’ ’round lookin’ for him.

Seems a downright shame.

(Sweeney Todd)
Shame ?

(Mrs Lovett)
Seems an awful waste.
Such a nice, plump frame.
Wot’s ‘is name has.
Had.
Has.
Nor it can’t be traced.
Bus’ness needs a lift.
Debts to be erased.
Think of it as thrift.
As a gift.
If you get my drift.

Seems an awful waste.
I mean, with the price of meat.
What it is.
When you get it.
If you get it.



(Sweeney Todd)
Ah.

(Mrs Lovett)
Good, you got it.

Take, for instance, Mrs. Mooney and her pie shop.
Bus’ness never better using only pussycats and toast.
Now a pussy’s good for maybe six or seven at the most.
And I’m sure they can’t compare as far as taste.

(Sweeney Todd)
Mrs. Lovett, what a charming notion.

(Mrs Lovett)
Well, it does seem a waste.

(Sweeney Todd)
Eminently practical.
And yet appropriate as always.

(Mrs Lovett)
Think about it.

(Sweeney Todd)
Mrs. Lovett, how I’ve lived.
Without you all these years, I’ll never know.
How delectable.
Also undetectable.

(Mrs Lovett)
Lots of other gentlemen’ll.
Soon be comin’ for a shave.
Won’t they ?
Think of.
All them.
Pies.

(Sweeney Todd)
How choice.
How.
Rare.
For what’s the sound of the world out there ?

(Mrs Lovett)
What, Mr. Todd ?
What, Mr. Todd ?
What is that sound ?

(Sweeney Todd)
Those crunching noises pervading the air.

(Mrs Lovett)
Yes, Mr. Todd.
Yes, Mr. Todd.
Yes, all around.

(Sweeney Todd)
It’s man devouring man, my dear.

(Sweeney Todd et Mrs Lovett)
And/Then who are we to deny it in here ?

(Sweeney Todd)
These are desperate times.
Mrs. Lovett, and desperate measures are called for.

(Mrs Lovett)
Here we are, now! Hot out of the oven.

(Sweeney Todd)
What is that ?

(Mrs Lovett)
It’s priest. Have a little priest.

(Sweeney Todd)
Is it really good ?

(Mrs Lovett)
Sir, it’s too good, at least.
Then again, they don’t commit sins of the flesh.
So it’s pretty fresh.

(Sweeney Todd)
Awful lot of fat.

(Mrs Lovett)
Only where it sat.

(Sweeney Todd)
Haven’t you got poet, or something like that ?

(Mrs Lovett)
No, y’see, the trouble with poet is.
‘Ow do you know it’s deceased ?
Try the priest.

Lawyer’s rather nice.

(Sweeney Todd)
If it’s for a price.

(Mrs Lovett)
Order something else, though, to follow.
Since no one should swallow it twice.

(Sweeney Todd)
Anything that’s lean ?

(Mrs Lovett)
Well, then, if you’re British and loyal.
You might enjoy Royal Marine.
Anyway, it’s clean.
Though of course, it tastes of wherever it’s been.

(Sweeney Todd)
Is that squire, on the fire ?

(Mrs Lovett)
Mercy no, sir, look closer.
You’ll notice it’s grocer.

(Sweeney Todd)
Looks thicker.
More like vicar.

(Mrs Lovett)
No, it has to be grocer.
It’s green.

(Sweeney Todd)
The history of the world, my love.

(Mrs Lovett)
Save a lot of graves.
Do a lot of relatives favors.

(Sweeney Todd)
Is those below serving those up above.

(Mrs Lovett)
Ev’rybody shaves.
So there should be plenty of flavors.

(Sweeney Todd)
How gratifying for once to know.

(Sweeney Todd et Mrs Lovett)
That those above will serve those down below.

(Sweeney Todd)
What is that ?

(Mrs Lovett)
It’s fop.
Finest in the shop.
And we have some shepherd’s pie peppered.
With actual shepherd on top.
And I’ve just begun.
Here’s the politician, so oily.
It’s served with a doily.
Have one.

(Sweeney Todd)
Put it on a bun.
Well, you never know if it’s going to run.

(Mrs Lovett)
Try the friar.
Fried, it’s drier.

(Sweeney Todd)
No, the clergy is really.
Too coarse and too mealy.

(Mrs Lovett)
Then actor.
It’s compacter.

(Sweeney Todd)
Ah but always arrives overdone.
I’ll come again when you have judge on the menu.
Have charity towards the world, my pet.

(Mrs Lovett)
Yes, yes, I know, my love.

(Sweeney Todd)
We’ll take the customers that we can get.

(Mrs Lovett)
High-born and low, my love.

(Sweeney Todd)
We’ll not discriminate great from small.
No, we’ll serve anyone.
Meaning anyone.

(Sweeney Todd et Mrs Lovett)
And to anyone.
At all.
