[cutting off Harry's hat with scissors]
I still don't see how you glued your hat on, Harry. I mean, I know you say you didn't, but obviously, you did.
I did *not* glue my hat to my head! The hat shrunk! The fibers fused to my hair!

personally, i hate nauseatingly cute family movies, but this movie is great! I went to see it in the theatre because i had read the book, but i thought that it wouldn't even come close to it. But you know what? I enjoyed this movie more than the novel! I thought it wouldn't be faithful to the book and that it would have turned out to be one of those typical kids' movies, but there's nothing "cute" about mrs. Trunchbull! This has got to be one of my favorite films ever and it IS the best childrens' movie ever made. I definitely recommend this movie to anyone who has his heart in the right place!
