[Seymour recounts how he found Audrey II]

Seymour: You remember that total eclipse of the sun about a week ago?

Crystal, Ronette, Chiffon: [singing] Da-doo!

Seymour: I was walkin' in the wholesale flower district that day...

Crystal, Ronette, Chiffon: Shoop da-doo.

Seymour: And I passed by this place, where this old Chinese man...

Crystal, Ronette, Chiffon: Chang, da-doo.

Seymour: He sometimes sells me weird and exotic cuttings...

Crystal, Ronette, Chiffon: Snip, da-doo.

Seymour: 'Cause he knows, you see, that strange plants are my hobby.

Crystal, Ronette, Chiffon: Da da da da da da-doo.

Seymour: He didn't have anything unusual there that day.

Crystal, Ronette, Chiffon: Nope, da-doo.

Seymour: So, I was just about to, you know, walk on by...

Doo-Wop Street Singer: Good for you.

Seymour: When suddenly, and without warning, there was this...

Crystal, Ronette, Chiffon: ...total eclipse of the sun!

Seymour: It got very dark, and there was this strange humming sound, like something from another world.

Crystal, Ronette, Chiffon: Da-doo!

Seymour: And when the light came back, this weird plant was just sitting there...

Crystal, Ronette, Chiffon: Whoop, see-doo.

Seymour: Just, you know, stuck in, among the zinnias.

Crystal, Ronette, Chiffon: Audrey II!

Seymour: I coulda sworn it hadn't been there before, but the old Chinese man sold it to me anyways, for a dollar ninety-five.”
