Baroness Kessler: My latest work: “The Devil: History and Myth” - a kind of biography. It will be published next year.
Dean Corso: Why the devil?
Baroness Kessler: I saw him one day. I was fifteen years old, and I saw him as plain as I see you now: cutaway, top hat, cane. Very elegant, very handsome. It was love at first sight.
Dean Corso: 300 years ago, that would get you burned at the stake.
Baroness Kessler: 300 years ago I wouldn’t have said it!
Lovett: All this running and shouting about what’s happened?
Todd: I had him.
Mrs.Lovett: I know the Sailor busted in i saw them both runnin down the street and i said to myself…
Todd: No I had him! His throat was there beneath my hand. I had swear I had him!
His throat was there and now he’ll never come again.
Mrs. Lovett: Easy now, hush love hush
I keep telling you -
Mrs.Lovett:What’s your rush?
Todd: Why do I wait?
You told me to wait -
Now he’ll never come again.
There’s a hole in the world like a great black pit
And it’s filled with people who are filled with shit
And the vermin of the world inhabit it.
But not for long…
They all deserve to die.
Tell you why, Mrs. Lovett, tell you why.
Because in all of the whole human race
Mrs Lovett, there are two kinds of men and only two
There’s the one they put in his proper place
And the one with his foot in the other one’s face
Look at me, Mrs Lovett, look at you.
Now we all deserve to die
Even you Mrs. Lovett…even I
Because the lives of the wicked should be made brief
For the rest of us death will be a relief
We all deserve to die.
And I’ll never see Johanna
No I’ll never hold my girl to me - finished!
(shouted) Alright! You sir, you sir, how about a shave?
Come and visit your good friend Sweeney.
You sir, you sir? Welcome to the grave.
I will have vengenance.
I will have salvation.
(shouted) Who sir, you sir?
No one in the chair, come on! Come on!
Sweeney’s waiting. I want you bleeders.
You sir - anybody.
Gentlemen don’t be shy!
Not one man, no, no ten men.
Not a hundred can assuage me -
I will have you!
And I will get him back even as he gloats
In the meantime I’ll practice on less honorable throats.
And my Lucy lies in ashes
And I’ll never see my girl again.
But the work waits!
I’m alive at last!
And I’m full of joy!
