Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968)
Truly Scrumptious: Is that all you do, Mr. Potts, invent things?

Truly Scrumptious: Well! I've never been...
Caracticus Potts: Spoken to that way before? Well, maybe it's about time!

Truly Scrumptious: [after Potts kisses her] Well, Mr. Potts!
Caracticus Potts: What's the matter?
Truly Scrumptious: Now you'll HAVE to marry me!
[they laugh as they head for the car]

Truly Scrumptious: Wh-what are you going to do?
Caracticus Potts: I'm going to carry you.
Truly Scrumptious: Oh... oh, dear. Must you?
Caracticus Potts: Well, unless you'd rather ride piggyback.

Truly Scrumptious: What's your name?
Jemima: I'm Jemima.
Jeremy: And I'm Jeremy.
Jemima: What's yours?
Truly Scrumptious: Truly.
Jemima: That's a very pretty name.
Truly Scrumptious: Now, where is your house?
Jeremy: Oh, we don't live in a house.
Jemima: We live in the castle on top of the hill.
Truly Scrumptious: [laughs] A castle? I didn't know there were any castles around here.
Jemima: Well, it isn't a castle exactly.
Jeremy: That's what Daddy calls it. He says King Alfred used to live there hundreds of years ago.
Truly Scrumptious: And does your Daddy know you aren't in school?
Jemima: Oh, he won't mind. He never does.
Jeremy: Anyway, he's awful busy.
Truly Scrumptious: Is he? Well, he'll have to find time to see me because I have a few things to say to him.

Truly Scrumptious: What an unusual car.
Jeremy: Daddy made it.
Truly Scrumptious: [laughs] Oh? And it actually goes?
Jemima: It's called Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
Truly Scrumptious: That's a curious name for a motorcar.
Jemima: But that's the sound it makes. Listen.

Jeremy: I'm so glad you came. It's much more fun with two grown-ups.
[laughs]
Jemima: Truly Scrumptious. You know, even if we didn't know your name, we could have guessed it.
Truly Scrumptious: Oh?
Jemima: You had to be called something lovely.
Jeremy: Like Yum-Yum!
Jemima: Or Angel Cake!
Jeremy: Or Toot Sweets!
Jemima: Yeah, Toot Sweets!
Truly Scrumptious: [laughs] Or Toot Sweets! Oh, no!

Caracticus Potts: And so, after that, Vulgaria became a free country, and all the children laughed and played in the sunshine, and they were very, very happy. And Chitty flew high over the mountains back to England, everybody safe and sound, and...
Jemima: And Daddy and Truly were married.
Jeremy: And lived happily ever after.
Jemima: Yes!
Truly Scrumptious: Is that how this story ends?
Caracticus Potts: [pauses] It's getting late. We better get back.
[Caractacus gets out to restart the car]

Caracticus Potts: Truly! Heh, I'm sorry about the children. I hope they didn't embarrass you.
Truly Scrumptious: In what way?
Caracticus Potts: Why, that silly joke about us getting married. Well, you know what kids are like.
Truly Scrumptious: Oh, yes. I understand.
Caracticus Potts: I mean, I don't think they realize how ridiculous that would be.
Truly Scrumptious: Ridiculous?
Caracticus Potts: Well, yes. I mean, you live in that big house and... your father and the factory and all. It's... it's a different world, Truly.
Truly Scrumptious: You know, if I said something like that, you'd... you'd call me a snob.
Caracticus Potts: Well, look, I-I didn't mean...
Truly Scrumptious: Goodbye!

Truly Scrumptious: [referring to helping the children] It's a beautiful dream Caractacus, but... I don't see how it's gonna help them.
[Truly looks at the children around them and Caractacus stands up]
Caracticus Potts: [confident] Do you know what we're gonna do? We're gonna get up into that castle!
Toymaker: [incredulous] It is impossible!
Caracticus Potts: [confident] Well, we'll see.
[Caractacus runs up to a large water channel and looks at the children watching]
Caracticus Potts: [loud and clear] Now, everybody listen to me! You wanna get out of here, don't you?
[the children cheer and Caractacus moves behind the water channel]
Caracticus Potts: [loud and clear] Tomorrow is Baron Bomburst's birthday, yes?
[the children boo with their thumbs down]
Caracticus Potts: [proud and confident] Well, we're gonna give him a birthday party he'll never forget!
[the children cheer and gather around as Caractacus makes the plan]

Truly Scrumptious: Don't you know where we're going?
Caracticus Potts: No, I don't but... Chitty does. I think we're in pretty good hands.

Caracticus Potts: What are they staring at?
Truly Scrumptious: I don't know. It seems to be the children.
Caracticus Potts: Well, what's the matter with them? Haven't they seen children before?
Truly Scrumptious: Haven't you noticed? There AREN'T any children. Not one.
