Little Shop of Horrors (1986) Poster

Ellen Greene: Audrey



  • Audrey : Seymour's first radio broadcast! I wanted to hear it so bad. I tried to be on time, but...

    Mr. Mushnik : Don't tell me. You got tied up.

    Audrey : No. Just handcuffed a little.

  • Audrey : [of Orin's disappearance]  It wouldn't be terrible at all. It would be a miracle, not to mention the money I'd save on epsom salts and ace bandages.

  • Patrick Martin : Me and the guys at the home office have been following this plant of yours. We've come up with one incredible idea. We're very proud of it. Picture this: we take leaf cuttings, develop little Audrey IIs and sell them to florist shops across the nation. Pretty soon every household in America could have one.

    Seymour : [concerned]  Every household in America!

    Patrick Martin : For starters, kid. Why, this thing could go... worldwide!

    Seymour , Audrey : [to each other, panicked:]  *Worldwide*?

    Patrick Martin : With the right advertising, this thing could be bigger than Hula-Hoops.

    Audrey : [to Seymour, intrigued:]  Bigger than Hula-Hoops?

  • Audrey : I don't believe it.

    Audrey II : Believe it, baby. It talks.

    Audrey : Am I dreaming this?

    Audrey II : No, and you ain't in Kansas, neither.

  • Orin : Stupid woman! Christ, what a friggin' scatterbrain!

    Audrey : I'm sorry, doctor! I'm sorry, doctor!

    Orin : Falls off the motorcycle!

    Audrey : I'm clumsy, doctor! I'm clumsy, doctor!

    Orin : [kicks down the doors]  Messes my hair! Get the door open, you little slut!

    Audrey : I'm trying, doctor! I;m trying, doctor!

    Orin : Get the Vitalis! Quick, the Vitalis!

    Audrey : [feeling threatened]  I'M OUT OF IT!

    Orin : [grabs her]  WHAT!

    [Orin slaps her harshly making her cry] 

  • Seymour : [singing]  Suddenly Seymour / Is standing beside you

    Audrey : [singing]  Suddenly Seymour / Showed me I can...

    Audrey : [singing over sustain]  Yes you can...

    Patrick Martin : Excuse me! Pardon me, beg your pardon, if you two kids would stop singing for just a moment I've got something I want to discuss with you.

  • Audrey : I got a date.

    Mr. Mushnik : With that same no-goodnik? I'm telling you, Audrey, you don't need a date - you need major medical!

  • Audrey : All I ever wanted was you and a sweet little house.

    Seymour : Oh Audrey, you're the most wondeful person that ever lived. We're gonna get that little house and everything's gonna be alright, you'll see.

  • Audrey : [singing about her dream home with Seymour]  Between our frozen dinners, and our bedtime - 9:15 - we'd snuggle watching Lucy on a big, enormous, 12-inch screen!

  • Audrey : I'm sorry doctor, I'm sorry.

    Orin : Fall off the motorcycle my ass!

  • Audrey : [singing]  A matchbox of our own, a fence of real chain-link/A grill out on the patio, disposal in the sink/A washer and a dryer and an ironing machine/In a tract house that we share/Somewhere that's green

  • Audrey II : I need me some water in the worst way. Look at my branches. I'm dryin' up. I'm a *goner*, honey!

    Audrey II : [singing]  Come on and give me a drink!

    Audrey : I don't know if I should.

    Audrey II : [singing]  Hey, little lady, be nice.

    Audrey : Do you talk to Seymour like this?

    Audrey II : [singing]  Sure do. I'll take it straight.

    Audrey : Your leaves *are* dry.

    Audrey II : [singing]  Don't need no glass or no ice.

    Audrey : I'll get the can.

    Audrey II : [singing]  Don't need no twist of lime...

    Audrey : [sing-song]  Here we go!

    Audrey II : And now it's *suppertime*!

  • Audrey : [singing]  You'll wash my tender leaves/You'll smell my sweet perfume/You'll water me, and care for me/You'll see me bud and bloom/I'm feeling strangely happy now/Contented and serene/Oh, don't you see?/Finally, I'll be/Somewhere that's... green!

  • [theatrical cut] 

    Seymour : [after saving Audrey from Audrey II]  Are you okay?

    Audrey : Yes... No...

    [Audrey collapses] 

    Seymour : Audrey! Audrey!

    Audrey : [gets back up]  No, really, I'm okay.

    Seymour : I'm sorry, Audrey, I'm just so sorry. I never meant to hurt you, I never meant to hurt anyone. It's just that somehow it makes things happen - terrible things. Well, I guess I should've stopped when I found out what it lived on, but it was cute and harmless, and we started doing business and making money and you like me...

    Audrey : Seymour! Do you really think I liked you because of that?

    [Seymour goes silent] 

    Audrey : I liked you from the day I came to work here.

    Seymour : You mean you still like me, even if I wasn't famous?

    Audrey : [smiles]  I'd still love you Seymour.

    Seymour : Really?

    Audrey : Yes. All I ever wanted was you... and that sweet little house.

    Seymour : [happily]  Oh, Audrey, you're the most wonderful person that ever lived! We're gonna get that little house and everything will be okay somehow, you'll see!


    Seymour : Suddenly Seymour is standing beside you.

    Audrey : [sings]  Suddenly Seymour showed me I can!

    Audrey : Yes, you can!

  • Audrey : [singing]  I'd cook like Betty Crocker and I'd look like Donna Reed!

  • Seymour : You okay?

    Audrey : Yes... no...

    [Audrey falls to the ground. Seymour helps her up and holds her in his arms] 

    Seymour : Don't die, Audrey! Please don't die!

    Audrey : You know, the plant just said the strangest thing just now. It said Orin and Mr. Mushnik are already inside!

    Seymour : It's true. I did it. I fed them to it.

    Audrey : And that's what made it so big and strong, and you so famous?

    Seymour : I've done terrible things, Audrey, but not to you. Never to you.

    Audrey : But... I want you to, Seymour.

    Seymour : What?

    Audrey : When I die, which should be very shortly, give me to the plant, so that it will live and bring you all the wonderful things you deserve.

    Seymour : You don't know what you're saying.

    Audrey : But I do! It's the one gift I can give you. And if I'm in the plant, then I am part of the plant, so in a way... we'll always be together.

  • Audrey : [singing]  Downtown/Where the guys are drips.

    Company : Downtown!

    Audrey : Where they rip your slips.

    Company : Downtown!

    Audrey : Where relationships are no go/Down on Skid Row.

  • Seymour , Audrey : [singing]  Gee, it sure would be swell to get outta here/Bid the gutter farewell and get outta here/I'd move Heaven and Hell to get outta Skid/I'd do I don't know what to get outta Skid...

    Company : Downtown!

    Seymour , Audrey : But a hell of a lot to get outta Skid...

    Company : Downtown!

    Seymour , Audrey : People tell me there's not a way outta Skid...

    Company : Downtown!

    Seymour , Audrey : But believe me/I gotta get outta Skid...

    Seymour , Audrey , Company : ...Row!
