Question: When the guards appear at Shrek's door, they are all lined up and blowing their trumpets. When they are finished, one of them on the end starts playing a tune. The leader goes to him, slaps him and says, "Quiet, Reggie." Does anyone know what this refers to?

Chosen answer: The music he's playing is the main them from the seventies television serie "Hawaii Five-0". The name is just a random one.

Dr Wilson

Answer: The name "Reggie" as well as the joke comes from a Fred Astaire film "Damsel in Distress" in which a character named Reggie breaks out into jazz during fanfares repeatedly in the film.
