sweeney todd the demon barber on fleet street

“Minkowski’s been talking about Sondheim again”

Headcanon that one day, Eiffel made the mistake of making a Sweeney Todd reference in front of Minkowski and this leads to a five hour lecture about his work and the merits of each one and why she likes her favorite (I… honestly don’t know enough about Sondheim to be able to guess which one that would be. I feel like Gabriel would probably say Sunday in the Park with George because that’s his favorite, but idk). Eiffel maybe understands half of what she’s saying and makes a mental note to never mention the demon barber of fleet street again.

The gist of Sweeney Todd
  • Mrs Lovett: Mrs Mooney puts her neighbour's cats into her pies
  • Mrs Lovett: wouldn't do in my shop
  • Mrs Lovett: just the thought of it's enough to make you sick
  • Also Mrs Lovett: we could put people in the pies though that's fine
