Shrek: Ogres are like... Onions.
Donkey: They stink?
Shrek: Yes-No.
Donkey: They make you cry?
Shrek: Nooo!
Donkey: Oh, you put them out in the sun, they turn brown, start sprouting little hairs.
Shrek: Noooooooo!

Donkey: This is gonna be fun! We can stay up late, swap manly stories, and in the morning, I'm making waffles!

Donkey: And then one time I ate some rotten berries. Man, there were some strong gases seepin' outta my butt that day!

Donkey: You, uh... You don't entertain much, do you?
Shrek: I like my privacy.
Donkey: Y'know, me too. That's another thing we have in common. I hate it when you've got someone in your face, you try to give someone a hint and they won't leave, and then there's that big awkward silence... [big awkward silence.].

Shrek: Donkey! Two things, OK? Shut. Up.

Farquaad: The winner shall have the honor - no, no, the privilege - to go forth and rescue the lovely Princess Fiona from the fiery keep of the dragon! If, for any reason, the winner is unsuccessful, the first runner-up will take his place. And so on, and so forth. Some of you may die, but it's a sacrifice I am willing to make. Let the tournament begin!

Continuity mistake: In the scene immediately following Fiona's thrashing of Robin Hood and his Merry Men, Shrek is holding Donkey and they are staring at Fiona in disbelief. When Shrek drops Donkey and turns to follow Fiona, you can see his entire backside and it's unpierced. In the next scene, Fiona discovers an arrow in his rump that wasn't there before. (00:53:18)

Question: In a movie with talking ogres, pigs, mice, wolves, and all sorts of animals, why is everyone so surprised to find a talking donkey?

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: Who is "everyone"? The only person surprised he can talk is the one human who is processing the fairytale creatures for banishment, and this was used as a plot device to highlight a joke (between him flying and talking).

Fiona also says "it talks", after he "saves his ass."

To be fair, she was locked in a castle for the majority of her life, so she wouldn't know that donkeys would be able to talk.

And yet he wasn't the only one surprised by it; watch the scene again and Fiona was surprised, too.
