Movie & Vocabulary: The Bride of Gingy @ Scared Shrekless

Since the entry "Technology: How to Use Your Galaxy SII? (Updated 6th Dec, 2011)", some readers find it really funny and want to learn the words in it, so as a request, I'm going to do a detail explanation of the scary story called "The Bride of Gingy" from Shrek, more precisely, from a spin-off of Shrek, a 21 min movie called Scared Shrekless (2010)! This clip is so funny that I have watched over 20 times and I'm still laughing! And, it has lots of English to learn!

Buckle up, everybody. The quicker I scare the wits out of you lot, the sooner I can be home, cozy in my bed. Unless anyone else thinks they've got what it takes.

Oh! Oh! Pick me, pick me! I have a scary story!

This isn't the one about you getting trapped in the petting zoo again, is it?

- 'Cause that's not scary.
- Actually...If you look at it from my perspective...

Hey, guess what, Pinocchio, no one cares! Get ready to send these jokers home, Shrek, 'cause I've got a doozy...and it's all true!

It was a dark and stormy night...


My girlfriend kicked me out.

I don't know, something about me being too into myself. Blah, blah, blah, yack, yack, yack.

You? But you are so adorable.

I know! That's what I keep telling her! I need a good woman, Muffin Man.

Ah. I can help you, Gingy.

- How about this one?
- Aw, I dunno.

- You like her, huh?
- Nope. Weird hair.

- How about this one?
- Too skinny.

No! Don't like it!

Okay. Well, how about this one?

Yes! That's it!


She's perfect. The girl of my dreams.

Wait! More sugar.

But that is not the recipe.

Trust me, Muffin Man, this girl's gotta be real sweet. I want someone who will love me forever.

I must warn you, Gingy. No one has ever made cookies with this much sugar. You are tampering with forces far beyond your comprehension!

Just put her in the oven!

Ah ha ha ha ha!
Ah ha ha ha...
Ha ha ha ha!

Hey. I get a little privacy?

- Huh?
- Take a hike.

Oh, oui.

Oh, my gosh, I'm in love! A cookie angel. Wow! And you're hot too! Hello? Hello? Oh... I guess it didn't work.

Ha ha! Gingy, is it you? The one I was made for?

Oh, we'll be together forever.


♪ I can't see me loving nobody but you for all my life ♪
♪ When you're with me baby, the skies'll be blue for all my life ♪
♪ Me and you and you and me no matter how they toss the dice ♪
♪ It had to be the only one for me is you and you for me ♪
♪ So happy together ♪

- Are ya happy, Gingy?
- You bet! The time since I met you has been the best...7 and a 1/2 minutes of my life.

Good! Because this is only the beginning. I'm going to love you and hold you and feed you and dress you and cling to you...
- Yeah...

Hang on to you and smother you with my love.

- Yeah...
- Forever and ever and ever and ever and ever...
- You know, it's gettin' a little stuffy in here.

You know, I might go get some air.

Oh, no, you don't.

Oh, no...
Not without your umbrella.

- Come on!
- Here, let me get that.

Wait for me!

Sugar, could you just do me one small, little teensy favor?


Could you leave me alone for like 30 seconds?

Anything but that.

You know, I forgot my gumdrop buttons.

Yeah! Could you run over there and get 'em for me, please?

Sure, I can. I'll be right back.

♪ Gingy, Gingy ♪

Run, run, run, as fast as you can if you wanna remain a gingerbread man!


- Oh, Gingy.
- Whaa...

I don't understand.

- I thought you were happy!
- Oh, well...

It's all my fault. I should have tried harder!

No, no, no! Don't try harder!

Maybe I'm not pretty enough. I can be pretty... really pretty! The girl of your dreams.
- Aah!




Let go, Gingy! Fall with me...so we can be together forever!

Here's a thought...You let go!

Together! Together fore...

Boy, what a night! I'm so glad that is over with! Oh! Oh, well. Nothing lasts forever.
- In sports...

Together forever.

Together forever. Together forever. Together forever.

What a nice surprise!

Together forever. Together forever. Together forever. Together forever.

- Hey... So what's up?
- Together forever.

I think we both may have said some things I might regret.

- Together forever!
- Gosh, your eye is pretty!

Look, I know you're upset, so... Aah!

Why don't we just sit down...and discuss this?

Then... they ate me!

Wee, wee, wee, wee, wee, wee!

They're gonna do that all the way home. I... I gotta go. They're my ride.

Wait a minute.

If they ate you, how is it that you're still here?

Did you not say this was a true story?

Um...You made it up, didn't ya?

I... hey, look! Lord Farquaad's ghost! Aah! Doody heads!
