    1. Sweeney Todd: There's a hole in the world, like a great black pit. And the vermin of the world inhabit it. And it's morals aren't worth what a pig could spit. And it goes by the name of London. On top of the hole sits the privileged few, making mock of the vermin in the lower zoo. Turning beauty into filth and greed. I too, have sailed the world and seen it's wonders. For the cruelty of men is as wondrous as Peru. But there's no place like London.
