Shrek: Ogres are like... Onions.
Donkey: They stink?

Fiona: Wait! Where are you going? The exit's over there.
Shrek: Well, I have to save my ass.
Fiona: What kind of knight are you?
Shrek: One of a kind.

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.].

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)

Trivia: Shrek took more than four years to produce. One of the reasons it took so long was that Chris Farley had been cast as the voice of Shrek, but he died in late 1997 from a drug overdose in the middle of production. His lines had to be re-recorded by Mike Myers.

Question: In theatrical trailers, when the dwarves put Snow White on Shrek's table, he says "Dead girl off the table." In the real movie, however, "girl" becomes "broad", according to the subtitles. Is there a reason why?

Susan Kirk

Chosen answer: This is most likely because "broad" isn't too nice of a word, and children of any age could watch the trailer. Parents wouldn't want their children to copy inapropriate language, obviously.

s.ounder

Answer: Broad is just a slang word meaning Woman. It was historically a bad word, but now it's not.
