Movie Quote Quiz

Seymour: Every household in America? Thousands of you eating... that's what you had in mind all along, isn't it?
Audrey II: No shit, Sherlock.
Seymour: We're not talking about one hungry plant here, we're talking about world conquest.
Audrey II: And I want to thank you.

Audrey: I don't believe it.
Audrey II: Believe it, baby. It talks.
Audrey: Am I dreaming this?
Audrey II: No, and you ain't in Kansas, neither.

Seymour: The Audrey Two is not a healthy girl.
Mr. Mushnik: Strictly between us - neither is the Audrey One.

Seymour: Wait for me, Audrey. This is between me and the vegetable.

Patrick Martin: Son, kid, boy are we gonna make a fortune.

Audrey: Seymour's first radio broadcast! I wanted to hear it so bad. I tried to be on time, but.
Mr. Mushnik: Don't tell me. You got tied up.
Audrey: No. Just handcuffed a little.

Audrey II: Does this look "inanimate" to you, punk? If I can move and I can talk, who's to say I can't do anything I want?

Audrey: All I ever wanted was you and a sweet little house.
Seymour: Oh Audrey, you're the most wondeful person that ever lived. We're gonna get that little house and everything's gonna be all right, you'll see.

Seymour: It's true! I chopped him up. But I didn't kill him.

Orin: I find a little giggle-gas before I begin increases my pleasure enormously.

Character mistake: Both in the movie (and stage) versions, Mushnik makes a verbal mistake. Seymour shows Mushnik his new plant (Audrey II) for the very first time, but seconds later when the plant suddenly droops, Mushnik asks Seymour, "Why is it always wilting like that?" Always? He's just seen the plant! The line should be, "Why is it wilting like that?" Some smart stage directors of the play version have wised up and changed the line.

Trivia: The original ending for this film (fully produced but then deleted) was a jaw-dropping apocalypse. For starters, Audrey II actually kills and eats both Seymour Krelborn and his bride-to-be, Audrey. The giant carnivorous plant grows to gargantuan proportions and divides into multiple monsters that go on a Godzilla-style rampage across New York City, tearing down bridges, eating whole passenger trains, climbing the Statue of Liberty, and doing battle with the military. The original ending alone cost over $5 million out of the film's $25 million budget, so it was a major undertaking. When director Frank Oz test-screened the finished film, he was stunned that audiences hated the deaths of lovable Seymour and Audrey and everything thereafter. Oz hastily reassembled his cast and crew to re-shoot a cheaper, much less gruesome happy ending, which was a hit with audiences. However, Frank Oz said that he thought the original ending was far superior and some of his best work, and he was extremely dissatisfied with the revised happy ending.

Question: Near the end of the song "I am a dentist", is Orin saying "and a success" or "and I say sit"?

Answer: He says "and a success". He's singing about his mother telling him he'd become a successful dentist.
