Quotes:
From Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)
Dr. Wonka: [knowing his son wants to be a chocolatier] Candy is a waste of time. No son of mine is going to be a chocolatier.
Little Willy Wonka: Then I'll run away! To Switzerland! Bavaria! The candy capitals of the world!
Dr. Wonka: Go ahead. But I won't be here when you come back.
