Shrek: I live in a swamp! I put up signs! I'm a terrifying ogre! What do I have to do to get a little privacy?!
Shrek: [to Donkey] WHY...are you following me?
Donkey: I'll tell you why. [sings] 'Cause I'm all alone. There's no one here beside me. My problems have all gone. There's no one to deride me! But ya gotta have friends!
Shrek: Stop singing! Well, it's no wonder you don't have any friends.
Donkey: Wow! Only a true friend would be that truly honest.
Shrek: Listen, little donkey. Take a look at me, what am I?

Just like the time (Keeps talking with Shreks hand on his mouth)—and then I ate some rotten berries and I had some strong gases eeking out of my butt that day.
