Mrs. Lovett: It's Priest. Have a little Priest .
Mr. Todd: Is it really good?

Mr. Todd: Awful lot of fat.
Mrs. Lovett: Only where it sat.
Mr. Todd: Haven't you got Poet, or something like that?
Mrs. Lovett: No, you see the trouble with Poet is how do you know it's deceased? Try the Priest. Lawyer's rather nice.

Mrs. Lovett: Order something else, though, to follow, since no one should swallow it twice.

Mr. Todd: Put it on a bun, but you never know if it's going to run.
