Mr Magorium[edit]

  • [Epitaph on the gravestone] Mr. Magorium, toy impresario, wonder aficionado and avid shoe wearer.
  • I fell so completely in love with these shoes, I bought enough pairs to last my whole lifetime. This is my last pair.
  • Some are important documents, others maybe doodles I never framed. I can't tell the difference.
  • Unlikely adventures require unlikely tools.
  • Light bulbs die, my sweet. I will depart.

  • All stories, even the ones we love, must eventually come to an end and when they do, it's only an opportunity for another story to begin.



Molly Mahoney: I knew it. As soon as I saw that suit.
Henry Weston: Knew what?
Molly Mahoney: You're a 'just' guy.
Henry Weston: What's a 'just' guy?
Molly Mahoney: A guy just like you. Same hair, same suit, same shoes, walks around, no matter what, you think it's all just a store, it's just a bench, it's just a tree. It's just what it is, nothing more!
Henry Weston: Alright but this [looks over his shoulder] is just a toy store.
Molly Mahoney: I'm sure to you... it is.

Mr. Magorium: [to Molly, about dying] When King Lear dies in Act V, do you know what Shakespeare has written? [Molly shakes her head] 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] 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. Magorium: I love you, too. [picks Molly up, sighs heavily] Your life is an occasion. Rise to it.

Mr. Magorium: Name the Fibonacci series from its eleventh to its sixteenth.
Henry Weston: Umm... 89, 144, 233, 377, 610?
Mr. Magorium: Perfect. Number four, do we really need it?
Henry Weston: If you like squares - you do.
Mr. Magorium: Oh, I like squares. Good. Now, the hot dog, the hot dog/bun ratio, why for the love of mustard are there never enough buns?
Henry Weston: Extra hot dogs.
Mr. Magorium: Yes, but why?
Henry Weston: In case you drop a couple.
Mr. Magorium: What kind of insufferable fool drops a hot dog?
Henry Weston: Anything can happen, sir.
Mr. Magorium: Anything can happen. How absolutely true. You're exactly the mutant I'm looking for! You're hired.

Molly Mahoney: You're here?
Henry Weston: Apparently.
Molly Mahoney: But not actually?

Mr. Magorium: 37 seconds.
Molly Mahoney: Great. Well done. Now we wait.
Mr. Magorium: No. We breathe. We pulse. We regenerate. Our hearts beat. Our minds create. Our souls ingest. 37 seconds, well used, is a lifetime.
