@Marina T. Koyama There are a couple things that I (respectfully) disagree with about your thesis.

In regards to the lack of emotion over the realization that Lucy’s death was on his hands: the man let himself get executed by a child whilst he held closely his dead wife’s body. His willingness to die wasn’t due to the fact that he was distraught over Mrs. Lovetts; if he knew he’d die without her, he would have spared her the fate of being thrown in a fire, maybe even said “What’s done is done” and either stayed there (potentially begrudgingly, and using Lovetts as more of a symbiotic partner of sorts- she can bask in his presence, he can use her for revenue and even as a means of lining up victims for him to release his aggression upon-), left to go brood by himself, or potentially even end his own life.

He picked the latter, but not before exacting revenge on Lovetts for her betrayal (or rather, let someone else end it so it want by his own hand). And the fact that he rushed to her aid was more for the fact that they’d just murdered a judge and his assistant, the scream came from the basement (where several bodies had been dumped) and they’d already been harassed for the stench (dead bodies) coming from their business; it was more of a “We might have just been found out…” senses are tingling, not for feelings towards her.

We do see anguish and despair that he (outwardly) expresses in the scenes when he finds out about Lucy’s rape and alleged suicide, and as he laments in “Epiphany” over how his “Lucy lies in ashes, and I’ll never see my girl again.” From there, it’s more of a cold, hardened man who’s outward appears calm, while internally he is a shaken bottle of emotions (mostly rage). He hardened himself to exact the only goal he figured he had left.

In this scene, he even uses titles like “My pet” for Mrs. Lovetts. Their relationship was essentially a Joker/Harley one, with his heart lying in ashes for the loss of Lucy and for Johanna’s imprisonment in the hands of the man who ruined his life. Mrs. Lovetts was just a useful instrument on his road to revenge, and essentially what was leftover for a consolation prize after his wife and child were gone.

(Edit: I am so sorry…I just got excited typing and discussing the psychology behind the movie that I didn’t realize how much I’d typed 😂)

Lovett: "Now let's see here...We've got Tinker!"
Todd: "Something...pinker."
Lovett: "How about Tailor?"
Todd: "Something paler..."
Lovett: "Maybe Butler?"
Todd: "Something subtler."
Lovett: "Perhaps some Potter?"
Todd: "Something...Hotter!"

I HAVE SO MANY THOUGHTS.

"Such a nice, plump frame what's-his-name has [contemplating] had? [reaffirming] has."
Whoa, getting a tad Hamlet on us there. He ain't the quintessence of dust just yet.

"When you get it. If you get it."
"Ah..."
"Good, you got it."
I pictured more motion here, but the stiff delivery is chilling. Helena is a gift to humanity.

"Mrs. Lovett, how I've lived without you all these years, I'll never know!"
Said I to myself, listening to By the Sea

That first waltz is everything.

How she says "missa" instead of "mister" makes me so happy. I know it's just Lovett's accent, but it's borderline gleeful and I live for it.

"Who are we to deny it in here?"
PERFECTION.

"Awful lot of fat."
How doth it feel to be roasted by a barber? (All the secondary characters can answer this question.)

Question for discussion: how do you know a poet's deceased? Asking for a friend.

That little R roll in "British and loyal" is hilarious! It's a wonderful display of Lovett's subtle humor and mockery, all while talking about baking people into pies. Love her.

"It's green!"
My brain: Audrey??

"Save a lot of graves, do a lot of relatives favors."
I JUST NOTICED THIS LINE AND I'M LAUGHING TOO HARD, SEND HELP

She's so excited over "plenty of flavors" even though it's murder and corpse desecration and cannibalism. In that order.

"That those above will serve those down below!"
Wonderful pun and wonderful voices. I'm in awe.

"Shepherd's pie peppered with actual shepherd on top."
Pffft. I aspire to this lyrical and rhyming prowess.

Hot take on politics, damn.

"And to anyone at all!"
saddens for a moment before remembering I've got the song on repeat

“It’s man devouring man my dear and who are we to deny it in here” one of the best lines of the entire film, genius

Soap

Right

Holly

I get shivers at that bit, it’s the best part! X

Maria Fox

You have Steven Sondheim to thank for that. The whole film is based on his play.

Koy Goddess

Indeed.

"At last! My arm is complete again" ?

That is called “canibalism”, my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies.
