Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium (2007)
Molly Mahoney: Mr. Magorian, I asked the big book for a lollipop and I got a lemur!
Mr. Edward Magorium: A lemur? We don't even carry lemurs! I'm not even sure I know what a lemur is! Wait, is that that small primate-looking thing?

Mr. Edward Magorium: I've hired an accountant.
Molly Mahoney: A what?
Mr. Edward Magorium: An accountant. According to the word, it must be a cross between a counter and a mutant and that may be precisely what we need.

Mr. Edward Magorium: [to Molly, about dying] When King Lear dies in Act V, do you know what Shakespeare has written? He's written "He dies." That's all, nothing more. No fanfare, no metaphor, no brilliant final words. The culmination of the most influential work of dramatic literature is "He dies." It takes Shakespeare, a genius, to come up with "He dies." And yet every time I read those two words, I find myself overwhelmed with dysphoria. And I know it's only natural to be sad, but not because of the words "He dies." but because of the life we saw prior to the words.
[pause, walks over to Molly]
Mr. Edward Magorium: I've lived all five of my acts, Mahoney, and I am not asking you to be happy that I must go. I'm only asking that you turn the page, continue reading... and let the next story begin. And if anyone asks what became of me, you relate my life in all its wonder, and end it with a simple and modest "He died."
Molly Mahoney: [starting to sob] I love you.
Mr. Edward Magorium: I love you, too.
[picks Molly up, sighs heavily]
Mr. Edward Magorium: Your life is an occasion. Rise to it.

Molly Mahoney: Are you dying?
Mr. Edward Magorium: Light bulbs die, my sweet. I will depart.

Molly Mahoney: Mutant, When you look at me, what do you see?
Henry Weston: Really pretty eyes?
[Chuckles]
Molly Mahoney: [laughs] No... I mean... like, do you see a sparkle?
Henry Weston: You mean now, like a glitter... on your face?
Molly Mahoney: No, like a sparkle.
Henry Weston: What kind of sparkle?
Molly Mahoney: Like, something reflective of something bigger that's trying to get out. You know what? Never mind.
Henry Weston: It might not be so much of a sparkle... maybe a twinkle?
Molly Mahoney: Forget it.
Henry Weston: A glint?
Molly Mahoney: It's ok.
Henry Weston: Ah... you've got that thing that you do with your hands...
Molly Mahoney: That's a quirk.
Henry Weston: A quirk's not a sparkle?
Molly Mahoney: uh uh.
Henry Weston: Oh...
Molly Mahoney: Yeah...
