Quotes

Willy Wonka: Do you like my meadow? Try some of my grass! Please have a blade, please do, it's so delectable and so darn good looking!

Charlie Bucket: You can eat the grass?

Willy Wonka: Of course you can! Everything in this room is eatable, even *I'm* eatable! But that is called "cannibalism," my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies.

Willy Wonka: Everything in this room is eatable, even I'm eatable! But that is called "cannibalism", my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies.

Willy Wonka: [getting his shoes shined by Charlie, his face hidden behind a newspaper] Pity about that chocolate fellow, Wendle, er, Walter...

Charlie Bucket: Willy Wonka.

Willy Wonka: That's the one. Says here in the papers his new candies aren't selling very well. But, I suppose maybe he's just a rotten egg who deserves it.

Charlie Bucket: Yep.

Willy Wonka: Oh really? You ever met him?

Charlie Bucket: I did. I thought he was great at first, but then he didn't turn out so nice. He also has a funny haircut.

Willy Wonka: [coming out from behind the newspaper] I do not!

Charlie Bucket: Why are you here?

Willy Wonka: I don't feel so hot. What makes you feel better when you feel terrible?

Charlie Bucket: My family.

Willy Wonka: Ew!

Charlie Bucket: What do you have against my family?

Willy Wonka: It's not just *your* family, it's the whole idea of...

[balks]

Willy Wonka: You know, they're always telling you what to do, what not to do and it's not conducive to a creative atmosphere!

Charlie Bucket: Usually they're just trying to protect you, because they love you.

[Willy looks away]

Charlie Bucket: If you don't believe me you should ask.

Willy Wonka: Ask who? My father? Ha! No way. At least not by myself...

Charlie Bucket: You want me to go with you?

Willy Wonka: Hey! Hey, what a great idea! Yeah!

[jumps up]

Willy Wonka: And you know what? I brought transporta...

[bangs into the glass elevator and falls down]

Willy Wonka: I have to be more careful where I park this thing.

Mike Teavee: Who wants a beard?

Willy Wonka: Well, beatniks for one, folk singers, and motorbike riders. Y'know. All those hip, jazzy, super cool, neat, keen, and groovy cats. It's in the fridge, daddy-o! Are you hip to the jive? Can you dig what I'm layin' down? I knew that you could. Slide me some skin, soul brother!

Mike Teavee: Why is everything here completely pointless?

Charlie Bucket: Candy doesn't have to have a point. That's why it's candy.

Willy Wonka: Good morning, starshine... the earth says hello!

Willy Wonka: You can't run a chocolate factory with a family hanging over you like an old, dead goose. No offense.

Grandpa George: None taken. Jerk.

Veruca Salt: I'm Veruca Salt. It's very nice to meet you, sir.

[does a curtsy]

Willy Wonka: I always thought a verruca was a type of wart you got on the bottom of your foot.

[laughs]

Mr. Salt: [as the squirrels take Veruca] Where are they taking her?

Willy Wonka: Where all the other bad nuts go, to the garbage chute.

Mr. Salt: Where does the chute go?

Willy Wonka: To the incinerator. But don't worry, we only light it on Tuesdays.

Mike Teavee: Today *is* Tuesday.

Willy Wonka: [after a pause] Well, there's always a chance they decided not to light it today.

Grandpa George: There's plenty of money out there. They print more every day. But this ticket, there's only five of them in the whole world, and that's all there's ever going to be. Only a dummy would give this up for something as common as money. Are you a dummy?

Veruca Salt: Daddy, I want a squirrel. Get me one of those squirrels, I want one!

Mr. Salt: Veruca dear, you have many marvelous pets.

Veruca Salt: All I've got at home is one pony and two dogs and four cats and six bunny rabbits and two parakeets and three canaries and a green parrot and a turtle, and a silly old hamster! I WANT a SQUIRREL!

Mr. Salt: All right, pet. Daddy'll get you a squirrel just as soon as he possibly can.

Veruca Salt: But I don't want any old squirrel! I want a *trained* squirrel!

Mr. Salt: [wearily] Very well. Mr. Wonka? How much do you want for one of these squirrels? Name your price.

Willy Wonka: Oh they're not for sale. She can't have one.

Veruca Salt: Daddy!

Willy Wonka: [imitating Mr. Salt] I'm sorry, darling. Mr. Wonka's being unreasonable.

Willy Wonka: [about Violet grabbing the gum] I'd rather you didn't. There's still one or two things that are a...

Violet Beauregarde: I'm the World Record holder in chewing gum. I'm not afraid of anything!

[pops the gum in her mouth]

Mrs. Beauregarde: How is it, honey?

Violet Beauregarde: It's amazing! Tomato soup, I can feel it running down my throat!

Willy Wonka: Yeah! Spit it out.

Grandpa Joe: Young lady, I think you'd better...

Violet Beauregarde: It's changing... roast beef and baked potato. Crispy skin and butter!

Mrs. Beauregarde: Keep chewin' kiddo! My little girl's gonna be the first person in the world to have a chewing gum meal!

Willy Wonka: Yeah. I'm just a little concerned about the...

Violet Beauregarde: Blueberry pie and ice cream!

Willy Wonka: That part.

Veruca Salt: [staring at Violet] What's happening to her nose?

[Violet keeps chewing and her nose starts turning purple]

Mr. Salt: You're turning blue!

Mrs. Beauregarde: Your whole nose has gone purple!

Violet Beauregarde: [touching her nose] W-What do you mean?

Mrs. Beauregarde: Violet, you're turning violet!

[to Wonka; concerned]

Mrs. Beauregarde: What's happening?

Willy Wonka: Well, I told you I hadn't quite got it right, 'cause it goes a little funny when it gets to the dessert. It's the Blueberry Pie that does it. I'm terribly sorry!

Violet Beauregarde: Mother, what's happening to me?

[continues to turn purple and starts to grow]

Grandpa Joe: She's swelling up!

Charlie Bucket: Like a blueberry!

Willy Wonka: [to Mrs. Beauregarde] I've tried it on, like, twenty Oompa-Loompas and each one ended up as a blueberry. It's just weird!

Mrs. Beauregarde: But I can't have a blueberry as a daughter. How is she supposed to compete?

Veruca Salt: You could put her in a county fair!

Mrs. Gloop: Where is my son? Where does that pipe go to?

Willy Wonka: That pipe, it just so happens to lead directly to the room where I make the most delicious kind of strawberry-flavoured chocolate-coated fudge.

Mrs. Gloop: Then he will be made into strawberry-flavoured chocolate-coated fudge? They'll be selling him by the pound all over the world?

Willy Wonka: No, I wouldn't allow it. The taste would be terrible. Can you imagine Augustus-flavoured chocolate-coated Gloop? Ew. No one would buy it.

Willy Wonka: Ew, somebody grab him.

Grandpa George: The kids who are going to find the golden tickets are the ones who can afford to buy candy bars every day! Our Charlie gets only one a year. He doesn't have a chance.

Grandma Josephine: Everyone has a chance, Charlie.

Grandpa George: Mark my words. The kid who finds the first ticket will be fat, fat, fat.

[Cuts to Augustus Gloop holding up the winning ticket]

German Reporter: Augustus!

Augustus Gloop: [as cameras flash] I'm eating the Wonka bar and I taste something that is not chocolate. Or coconut, or walnut, or peanut butter, or nougat, or butter brittle, or caramel, or sprinkles. So I look and I find the golden ticket.

Willy Wonka: You, little girl. Say something. Anything.

Narrator: This is a story of an ordinary little boy named Charlie Bucket. He was not faster, or stronger, or more clever than other children. His family was not rich or powerful or well-connected; in fact, they barely had enough to eat. Charlie Bucket was the luckiest boy in the entire world. He just didn't know it yet.

Charlie Bucket: But it didn't close forever, it's open right now.

Mrs. Bucket: Ah, yes, well sometimes, when grown ups say "forever," they mean, "a very long time."

Grandpa George: Such as, I feel like I've eaten nothing but cabbage soup forever.

Mr. Bucket: Now pops...

Grandma Josephine: The factory did close, Charlie.

Grandpa Joe: And it seemed like it was going to be closed forever. Then, one day, we saw smoke rising from the chimneys. The factory was back in business!

Charlie Bucket: Did you get your job back?

Grandpa Joe: No. No one did.

Charlie Bucket: But there must be people working there.

Grandma Josephine: Think about it, Charlie. Have you ever seen a single person going into that factory? Or coming out of it?

Charlie Bucket: No. The gates are always closed.

Grandpa Joe: Exactly.

Charlie Bucket: But then, who's running the machines?

Mrs. Bucket: Nobody knows, Charlie.

Mr. Teavee: [has just seen chocolate transported by television] So, can you send other things? Say, like, breakfast cereal?

Willy Wonka: Do you have any idea what breakfast cereal's made of? It's those little curly wooden shavings you find in pencil sharpeners.

Charlie Bucket: But could you send it by television if you wanted to?

Willy Wonka: Course I could.

Mike Teavee: What about people?

Willy Wonka: Well, why would I wanna send a person? They don't taste very good at all.

Willy Wonka: Improvisation is a parlor trick. Anyone can do it.

Willy Wonka: You, little girl. Say something. Anything.

Violet Beauregarde: Chewing gum.

Willy Wonka: Chewing gum is really gross. Chewing gum, I hate the most. See? Exactly the same.
