Shrek: For your information, there's a lot more to ogres than you think.
Shrek: Example? Okay, umm... ogres... are like onions.
Donkey: [Sniffs onion in Shrek's hand] They stink?
Shrek: Yes- NO!
Donkey: Oh, they make you cry!
Donkey: Oh, you leave 'em out in the sun, they get all brown, start sproutin' little white hairs?
Shrek: NO! [peels an onion] Layers. Onions. Have. Layers. Ogres have layers. Onions have layers... you get it, we both have layers! [Sighs and walks off]
Donkey: [Beat] Oh, you both have laaayers... [Sniffs onion on ground and makes face] You know not everybody like onions... CAKE! Eeeeverybody likes cake. Cakes have layers!
Shrek: I don't care... what everyone likes. Ogres... are not... like cakes. [Walks off]
Donkey: [Beat] You know what everybody likes? Parfaits! Have you ever met a person, you say, "Let's get some parfait," they say, "Hell no, I don't like no parfait"? Parfaits are delicious!
Shrek: NO!! You dense, irritating, miniature beast of burden! Ogres are like onions! End of story- bye-bye!.... See you later. [Walks off]
Donkey: [beat] Parfaits may be the most delicious thing on the whole, damn planet...
Shrek: You know what? I think I preferred your humming.
