Sweeney Todd: Noooooo! Would no one have mercy on her?

Mrs Lovett: So it’s you. Benjamin Barker.

Sweeney Todd: Where’s Lucy? Where’s my wife?

Mrs Lovett: She poisoned herself, arsenic from the apothecary round the corner, I tried to stop her, but she wouldn’t listen to me, and he’s got your daughter.

Sweeney Todd: He? Judge Turpin?

Mrs Lovett: Adopted her like his own.

Sweeney Todd: 15 years sweating, and living hell, for a false charge. 15 years dreaming I might come home to a wife and child.

Mrs Lovett: Well, I can’t say the years have been particularly kind to you, Mr. Barker.

Sweeney Todd: No, not Barker. That man is dead. It’s Todd now. Sweeney Todd… and he will have his revenge.
