Cecilia Tallis: You idiot... You realize that's probably the most valuable thing we own?
Robbie Turner: Not anymore it isn't.

I am very, very sorry for the terrible distress that I have caused you. I am very, very sorry...

Briony - 18 years old

[voiceover] Dearest Cecilia, the story can resume. The one I had been planning on that evening walk. I can become again the man who once crossed the surrey park at dusk, in my best suit, swaggering on the promise of life. The man who, with the clarity of passion, made love to you in the library. The story can resume. I will return. Find you, love you, marry you and live without shame.

Robbie Turner

I love you. I'll wait for you. Come back. Come back to me.

Cecilia Tallis

Mrs. Lovett: Mr. T, you didn't!
[looks into the chest and sees Pirelli's dead body. Shuts it]
Mrs. Lovett: You're barking mad! Killing a man what done no harm to ya!
Sweeney Todd: [polishing his razor] He recognized me from the old days. Tried to blackmail me. Half me earnings.
Mrs. Lovett: [relieved] Oh, well that's a different matter then. For a moment there I thought you lost your marbles.

Judge Turpin: Oh yes... such practices. The Geisha's of Japan, the concubines of Siam, the catamites of Greece, the harlots of India. I have them all here, drawings of them. Everything you've ever dreamed of doing with a woman. Would you like to see?
Anthony Hope: I think there's been some mistake.
Judge Turpin: I think not. You gandered at my ward, Johanna. You gandered at her. YES, sir, you gandered!
Anthony Hope: I meant no harm.
Judge Turpin: Your meaning is immaterial. Mark me! If I see your face again on this street, you'll rue the day you were born.

That lad is drinking me out o' house an' home.

Mrs. Lovett

Sweeney Todd: [sung to his razor] There there, my friend... /Come, let me hold you...
Mrs. Lovett: [sung] I'm your friend too, Mr. Todd... /If you only knew, Mr Todd...

Sweeney Todd: Where is Lucy? Where is my wife?
Mrs. Lovett: She poisoned herself. Arsenic from the apothecary around the corner... and he's got your daughter.
Sweeney Todd: He? Judge Turpin?

Alright! You, sir?/How about a shave?/Come and visit/Your good friend Sweeney!/You sir! Too, sir/Welcome to the grave./I will have vengenance./I will have salvation... /Who, sir? You sir!/No one's in the chair come on, come on/Sweeney's waiting/I want you bleeders./ You sir? Anybody?/Gentlemen, now don't be shy/Not one man/No, nor ten men/Nor a hundred can assuage me.

Sweeney Todd

Sweeney Todd: [holding up his razor] At last my arm is complete again!
Mrs. Lovett: [dryly] That's all very well. But what're we gonna do about him?
[points to hand of a dead body sticking out of a box across the room]

[to Sweeney] May the good Lord smile on you.
