Corpse Bride (2005)
The Corpse Bride: Darling... where are you going?
Victor Van Dort: *Home*!

The Corpse Bride: Get out!
Barkis Bittern: Oh, I'm leaving.
[evil laugh]
Barkis Bittern: [picking up the wine goblet] But first! A toast, to Emily. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride! Tell me, my dear, can a heart still break once it's stopped beating? Hm?

Maggot: [singing] What does that wispy little brat have that you don't have double?
Black Widow Spider: [singing] She can't hold a candle to the beauty of your smile!
The Corpse Bride: How about a pulse?
Maggot: Overrated by a mile!
Maggot, Black Widow Spider: [singing] Overvalued! Overblown! If he only knew the you that we know!
Black Widow Spider: [singing] And that silly little creature isn't wearing his ring.
Maggot: [singing] And she doesn't play piano,
Maggot, Black Widow Spider: [singing] Or dance, or sing. No she doesn't compare!
The Corpse Bride: But she still breaths air...
Maggot, Black Widow Spider: Who cares?
Maggot: Unimportant!
Maggot, Black Widow Spider: [singing] Overrated! Overblown! If only he could see how special you can be; if he only knew the you that we know.
The Corpse Bride: [singing] If I touch a burning candle, I can feel no pain. If you cut me with a knife, it's still the same. And I know her heart is beating, and I know that I am dead; yet the pain here that I feel, try and tell me it's not real, and it seems that I still have a tear to shed.
Maggot: [singing] The sole redeeming feature from that little creature is that she's alive.
Black Widow Spider: Overrated!
Maggot: Overblown!
Black Widow Spider: [singing] Everybody knows that's just a temporary state, which is cured very quickly when we meet our fate.
Maggot: Who cares?
Black Widow Spider: Unimportant!
Maggot, Black Widow Spider: [singing] Overrated! Overblown! If only he could see how special you can be; if he only knew the you that we know.
The Corpse Bride: If I touch a burning candle, I can feel no pain. In the ice or in the sun, it's all the same. Yet I feel my heart is aching; thou it doesn't beat, it's breaking; and the pain here that I feel, try and tell me it's not real. I know that I am dead; yet it seems that I still have some tears to shed.

[the Corpse Bride recognizes Lord Barkis]
The Corpse Bride: You!
Barkis Bittern: Emily?
[Lord Barkis and Emily are shocked to see each other]
The Corpse Bride: You!
Barkis Bittern: But, but I left you.
The Corpse Bride: For dead!

The Corpse Bride: Isn't the view beautiful? It takes my breath away. Well, it would if I had any.

The Corpse Bride: [about Victor's dead dog, Scraps] What a cutie.
Victor Van Dort: You should have seen him with fur.

The Corpse Bride: We need to go up. Upstairs? To visit the land of the living.
Elder Gutknecht: Land of the living? Oh, my dear.
The Corpse Bride: Please, Elder Gutknecht.
Elder Gutknecht: Now, why go up there when people are dying to get down here?
Victor Van Dort: Sir, I beg you to help. It means so much to me... us.
Elder Gutknecht: I don't know. It's just not natural.
The Corpse Bride: Please, Elder Gutknecht. Surely there must be something you can do.
Elder Gutknecht: Let me see what I can do.

The Corpse Bride: [angrily, grabbing Victor] Hopscotch!
Victor Van Dort: No, no! Victoria!

Elder Gutknecht: Just remember, when you want to come back, say "Hopscotch."
The Corpse Bride: Hopscotch?
Elder Gutknecht: That's it.

The Corpse Bride: [about Victor] He's not my boyfriend, he's my husband.

The Corpse Bride: [after chasing Victor through the forest] You may kiss the bride.

The Corpse Bride: Maybe perhaps he does belong with her.
[sarcastic tone]
The Corpse Bride: Little Miss Living, with her rosy cheeks and beating heart.

[last lines]
Victor Van Dort: Wait. I made a promise.
The Corpse Bride: You kept your promise. You set me free. Now I can do the same for you.

The Corpse Bride: I was a bride. My dreams were taken from me. But now - now I've stolen them from someone else. I love you, Victor, but you are not mine.

Victor Van Dort: But I don't even know your name.
Maggot: [from inside the Corpse Bride's head] Well, that's a great way to start a marriage.
The Corpse Bride: [grasps head and hisses] Sshh! Shut up!
[smiles at Victor]
The Corpse Bride: It's Emily.

The Corpse Bride: ...I'm sure he has a perfectly good reason... for taking so long...
Maggot: Oh, I am sure he does. Why don't you go ask him?
The Corpse Bride: All right, I will!
Maggot: After all, he couldn't get far - with those cold feet...

The Corpse Bride: [to Maggot] Go chew on someone else's ear a while.

The Corpse Bride: I've spent so long in the darkness, I'd almost forgotten how beautiful the moonlight is.

The Corpse Bride: [after her hand escapes her arm and dances up Victor's arm] Pardon my enthusiasm.
Victor Van Dort: [snapping her hand into place] I like your enthusiasm.

Paul The Head Waiter: Coming through, coming through. My name is Paul, the head waiter. I will be creating your wedding feast.
Maggot: [popping out the Corpse Bride's eye] Wedding feast, I'm salivating.
The Corpse Bride: [pushing the maggot back into her eye] Maggots.
[laughs]

Victor Van Dort: What's going on here? Where am I? Who are you?
The Corpse Bride: Well, that's kind of a long story.
Bonejangles: What a story it is. A tragic tale of romance, passion and murder most foul.

The Corpse Bride: Scraps... Elder Gutknecht... Are you there? Hello? Is anyone home? Hello? There you are!
Elder Gutknecht: Oh, my dear. There you are.
The Corpse Bride: I've brought my husband, Victor.
Elder Gutknecht: What's that? Husband?
Victor Van Dort: Pleasure to meet you, sir.

Elder Gutknecht: Where did I put that book? I left it here somewhere. There's the one. I have it. A Ukranian haunting spell. Just the thing for these quick trips.
The Corpse Bride: So glad you thought of this.
Victor Van Dort: Me too.
Elder Gutknecht: Now, then... Where were we?
The Corpse Bride: The Ukranian haunting spell
Elder Gutknecht: Ahh... Here we have it. Ready?

The Corpse Bride: [meeting Victoria] Darling, I just wanted to meet... Darling, who's this?
Victoria Everglot: Who is she?
The Corpse Bride: I'm his wife.
Victoria Everglot: Victor?
Victor Van Dort: Victoria, wait. You don't understand. She's dead. Look!

The Corpse Bride: And I thought... I thought this was all going so well.

The Corpse Bride: I do.

Victor: Look, I am terribly sorry about what's happened to you and I would like to help. But I really need to get home.
The Corpse Bride: This is your home now.

Victor Van Dort: Emily.
The Corpse Bride: Oh, I almost forgot. I have something for you. It's a wedding present.
Victor Van Dort: [opens the box and finds a bone] Haah. Thank you.
[Victor's present turns out to be his dead dog Scraps, who is now a dog skeleton]
Victor Van Dort: Scraps? Scraps. It's my dog, Scraps. Oh, Scraps. What a good boy?
The Corpse Bride: I knew you'd be happy to see him.
Victor Van Dort: Who's my good boy. Sit! Sit, Scraps. Good boy, Scraps. Roll over, roll over.

The Corpse Bride: [to Victor] In the woods, you said your vows so perfectly
Victor Van Dort: [to himself] I did!
[starts hitting his head on the bar]
Victor Van Dort: Wake up wake up WAKE UP.

The Corpse Bride: It's my eye, isn't it?
[pops loose eye into skull]
Victor Van Dort: No! Your eye is uh, lovely.
