Really Really?

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?

Donkey: Uh... [looks Shrek up and down] Really tall?

Shrek: No! I'm an ogre! You know, "Grab your torch and pitchforks!" Doesn't that bother you?

Donkey: [shakes his head happily] Nope.

Shrek: [surprised] Really?

Donkey: Really really.
