Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971) Poster

Denise Nickerson: Violet Beauregarde



  • Violet Beauregarde : Well, they can't be real people.

    Willy Wonka : Why, of course they're real people.

    Mr. Salt : Stuff and nonsense!

    Willy Wonka : No, Oompa Loompas.

    The Group : [turning around]  Oompa Loompas?

    Willy Wonka : From Loompaland.

    Mrs. Teevee : Loompaland? There's no such place.

    Willy Wonka : Excuse me, dear lady, but...

    Mrs. Teevee : Mr. Wonka, I am a teacher of geography.

    Willy Wonka : Oh, well, then you know all about it and what a terrible country it is. Nothing but desolate wastes and fierce beasts. And the poor little Oompa Loompas were so small and helpless, they would get gobbled up right and left. A Wangdoodle would eat ten of them for breakfast and think nothing of it. And so, I said, "Come and live with me in peace and safety, away from all the Wangdoodles, and Hornswogglers, and Snozzwangers, and rotten, Vermicious Knids."

    Mr. Salt : Snozzwangers? Vermicious Knids? What kind of rubbish is that?

    Willy Wonka : I'm sorry, but all questions *must* be submitted in writing. And so, in the greatest of secrecy, I transported the entire population of Oompa Loompas to my factory here.

    Veruca Salt : Hey, Daddy, *I* want an Oompa Loompa! I want you to get me an Oompa Loompa right away!

    Mr. Salt : All right, Veruca, all right. I'll get you one before the day is out.

    Veruca Salt : [whining]  I want an Oompa Loompa now!

    Violet Beauregarde : Can it, you nit!

  • Mrs. Gloop : What a disgusting, dirty river!

    Mr. Salt : Industrial waste, that. You've ruined your watershed Wonka: it's polluted.

    Willy Wonka : It's chocolate.

    Veruca Salt : That's chocolate?

    Charlie : That's chocolate!

    Violet Beauregarde : A chocolate river.

  • Mrs. Teevee : [as the Wonkatania starts to move]  I think I'm going to be seasick!

    Willy Wonka : [handing something to Mrs. Teevee]  Here, take these.

    Mrs. Teevee : What are they?

    Willy Wonka : Rainbow drops. Suck them and you can spit in seven different colors!

    Violet Beauregarde : [as she digs around in her nostril]  Spitting's a dirty habit.

    Willy Wonka : I know a worse one.

  • Willy Wonka : Don't you know what this is?

    Violet Beauregarde : By gum, it's gum.

    Willy Wonka : [happily, but sarcastically]  Wrong! It's the most amazing, fabulous, sensational gum in the whole world.

    Violet Beauregarde : What's so fab about it?

    Willy Wonka : This little piece of gum is a three-course dinner.

    Mr. Salt : Bull.

    Willy Wonka : No, roast beef. But I haven't got it quite right yet.

  • Veruca Salt : [after Willy gives an Everlasting Gobstopper to each of the kids]  Hey, she's got two! I want another one!

    Violet Beauregarde : [showing her Gobstopper to Veruca]  Stop squawking, you twit!

    Willy Wonka : [making it clear he's not going to stand for the girls' bickering]  Everybody has had ONE, and ONE is enough for anybody. Now come along.

  • Violet Beauregarde : What is this, a freak out?

  • Violet Beauregarde : Well, I'm a gum chewer, normally. But when I heard about these ticket things of Wonka's, I laid off the gum and switched to candy bars, instead. Now, of course, I'm right back on gum. I chew it all day, except at mealtimes when I stick it behind my ear.

    Mrs. Beauregarde : Violet...

    Violet Beauregarde : Cool it, Mother!

    [showing her gum to the audience] 

    Violet Beauregarde : Now, this little piece of gum here is one I've been chewing on for three months solid, and that's a world record. It's beaten the record held by my best friend, Miss Cornelia Prince Medal. And, WAS she mad.

    [puts the gum back in her mouth and continues chewing, then waves] 

    Violet Beauregarde : Hi, Cornelia. How are ya, sweetie?

  • Mr. Beauregarde : Violet, what are you doing now? You're blowing up!

    Violet Beauregarde : I feel funny!

    Grandpa Joe : I'm not surprised.

  • Mr. Beauregarde : [looks shocked when Violet begins swelling]  Violet, what are you doing now? You're blowing up!

    Violet Beauregarde : I feel funny.

    [her belt pops off her expanding abdomen] 

    Grandpa Joe : I'm not surprised.

    Violet Beauregarde : [continues expanding]  What's happening?

    Mr. Beauregarde : You're blowing up like a balloon!

    Willy Wonka : Like a blueberry.

    Mr. Beauregarde : Somebody, do something. Call the doctor!

    [Mike Teevee poking at Violet's expanding body] 

    Mrs. Teevee : Stick her with a pin.

    Charlie : She'll pop!

    Willy Wonka : It happens every time, they all become blueberries.

    Mr. Beauregarde : You've really done this time, haven't you, Wonka. I'll break you for this.
