Mrs. Which

  • The only thing faster than light is the darkness.
  • Trust nothing.

Dr. Alexander Murry

  • [from trailer] What if we are here for a reason, what if we are part of something truly divine?

Dialogue

Mrs. Whatsit: Call me Mrs. Whatsit.
Meg: [skeptically] Mrs. who?
Mrs. Whatsit: No, Mrs. Whatsit. Mrs. Who is... She's like a billion years older, and way more knowledgeable.
Dr. Kate Murry: [suspiciously] What can I do for you, Mrs... "Whatsit"?
Charles Wallace: I caught her stealing sheets. Guys, she's harmless.
Meg: You're seventeen. Come on. What do you know about harmless?
Charles Wallace: Have I ever been wrong?
Meg: One of these days, you might be, Charles Wallace.
Mrs. Whatsit: Oh, I highly doubt that. He's one of the greatest minds in recent history. He's prodigious. But of course, we can't take any credit for our talents. It's how we use them that counts.

[After Calvin has fallen off of Mrs. Whatsit's back while flying but is unhurt]
Mrs. Which: [dissappointed] Whatsit, those from Earth need more help than most. You know this... you could have prepared them better. We must help them stay focused on light when darkness is present.
Mrs. Whatsit: I mean I'm trying, but they're human. They're very limited.

[All of the cul de sac houses are folding away and the ground is turning to sand]
Charles Wallace: It's changing again.
[Meg, Charles Wallace and Calvin now see the ocean, and seagulls can be heard squawking]
Calvin: Is this still Camazotz?
Meg: They said it was a planet that owned many faces.
[Meg, Charles Wallace and Calvin turn and are surprised to see a crowded beach and begin to walk through it]
Calvin: [noticing that there is lots of food on a person's beach towel] Do you think this person would mind if I ate all their food?
Meg: Probably.
Red: HEY! I'M RIGHT HERE! I'M RIGHT HERE! HELLOOO! HELLO! FRIENDS! [walks up to them] Hello, friends. Hey. How are you guys?
Calvin: Who're you?
Red: Oh, me? I'm nobody. But you can call me Red. And you are?
Calvin: I'm Calvin. This is Meg. And this is Charles Wallace.
Red: Oh! You're Alex Murry's kids, aren't you?
Meg: You know my father?
Red: Yeah, yeah! I totally know your father. She's a great guy. I just saw him a couple minutes ago.
