Movie Script I 电影对白一：
Victor: Really it shouldn't be all that difficult. It's just a few simple vows. With this hand, I
will take your wife, oh, no. With this hand, I will cup your……oh, goodness, no. With this……with this candle, I will……I will……I will set your mother on fire. Oh, it's no use. With this hand, I will lift your sorrows. Your cup will never empty, for I will be your wine. Ah, Mrs. Everglot you look lavishing this evening. What's that, Mr. Everglot? Call you Dad? If you insist, sir. With this candle, I will light your way in darkness. With this ring, I ask you to be mine.
Emily: I do. You may kiss the bride.
Movie Script II 电影对白二：
Emily: With this hand, I will lift your sorrows. Your cup will never empty, for I will be……I will be……Your cup will never empty, for I will be……
Victor: I will be your wine.
Corpse 1: She's havinga second thought.
Emily: I can't.
Victor: What's wrong?
Emily: This is wrong. I was a bride. My dreams were taken from me. But now, now I've stolen them from someone else. I love you, Victor. But you are not mine.
Barkis: Oh, how touching! I always cry at weddings. The young lovers together at last. Surely now they can live happily ever after. But you forget, she's still my wife. I will not leave here empty-handed!
Barkis: Uhh, Emily?
Barkis: But, but……I left you.
Emily: Left me dead.
Barkis: This woman is obviously delusional. Sorry to cut it short, but we must be on our way.
Victor: Take you hands off her.
Barkis: Do I have to kill you too?
Corpse 2: Victor, catch! Sorry.
Corpse 3: I say, play it fair, sir.
Barkis: Too shame, my dear.
Emily: Get out!
Barkis: Oh, I'm leaving. But first a toast to Emily, always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Tell me, my dear, can a heart still break when it stops beating?
Maggot: Let me have him, let me have him, don't let him……
Corpse 4: Wait, we must abide by their rules. We are amongst the livings.
Barkis: Well said.
Maggot: Not any more.
Corpse 5: Yes, you're right. He's all yours.
Corpse 2: New arrival.
Victoria: Oh, Victor, I never thought I'd see you again.
Victor: Wait. I made the promise.
Emily: You kept your promise. You set me free. Now I can do the same for you.
