Helena Bonham Carter: Mrs. Bucket
Mrs. Bucket : Oh well, nothing goes better with cabbage than cabbage.
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.
