  • Good morning, starshine. The Earth says hello.
  • Everything in this room is eatable. Even I'm eatable. But that is called cannibalism, my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies. Enjoy.


Joe: Wouldn't it be something, Charlie, to open a bar of candy and find a Golden Ticket inside?
Charlie: I know. But I only get one bar a year. For my birthday.
Mrs. Bucket: Well, it's your birthday next week.
Josephine: You have as much chance as anybody does.
George: Balderdash. The kids who're going to find the Golden Tickets are the ones who can afford to buy candy bars every day. Our Charlie gets only one a year. He doesn't have a chance.
Josephine: Everyone has a chance, Charlie.
George: Mark my words. The kid who finds the first ticket will be fat, fat, fat!
[We cut to Augustus Gloop at the butcher shop in Germany]

Mike: [in the middle of playing a video game] DIE!! DIE!! DIE!!!!

George: There's plenty of money out there. They print more every day. But this ticket - There are only five of them in the whole world, and that's all there's ever going to be. Only a dummy would give this up for something as common as money. Are you a dummy?
Charlie: No, sir.
George: Then get that mud off your pants. [gives two thumbs up] You've got a factory to go to!
[Charlie smiles]

Charlie: Mr. Wonka, why would Augustus' name already be in the Oompa-Loompa song? Unless they-
Wonka: Improvisation is a parlor trick. Anyone can do it. [turns to Violet] You, little girl, say something. Anything.
Violet: Chewing gum.
Wonka: Chewing gum is really gross, chewing gum I hate the most. See? Exactly the same.
Mike: No, it isn't.
Wonka: Uh, you really shouldn't mumble because I can't understand a word you're saying.

Wonka: You're all quite short, aren't you?
Violet: Well, yeah, we're children.
Wonka: Well, that's no excuse, I was never as short as you.
Mike: You were once.
Wonka: Was not! Know why? Because I distinctly remember putting a hat on top of my head. Look at your short little arms. You could never reach.

Mr. Salt: [about the squirrels taking Veruca] Where are they taking her?
Wonka: Where all the other bad nuts go, to the garbage chute.
Mr. Salt: Where does the chute go?
Wonka: To the incinerator. But don't worry, we only light it on Tuesdays.
Mike: Today is Tuesday.
Wonka: Well, there's always a chance they decided not to light it today.

[Wonka, Charlie, Mike, Mr. Teevee, and Grandpa Joe are whizzing downward through the Exploding Candy Room in the Great Glass Elevator]
Mike: Why is everything here completely pointless?
Charlie: Candy doesn't have to have a point. That's why it's candy.
[Wonka smiles endearingly]
Mike: It's stupid.
[Wonka has a flashback with having a heated row with his father]
Wilbur: [speaking through Mike] Candy is a waste of time. [cut to the Wonka house] No son of mine is going to be a chocolatier!
Young Willy: [enraged] Then I'll run away, to Switzerland! Bavaria! The candy capitals of the world!
Wilbur:: Go ahead. But I won't be here when you come back.
[Young Willy leaves the house out of anger, walks through a bunch of flags, and runs into a security guard]
Security Guard: Sorry son, but we are closing for the night. [reveals that it was just a mall store called ‘Flags Of The World’. Young Willy comes back and finds out that his house is missing, as he stares at it in shock]

Wonka: Oh, thank heavens, he's completely unharmed.
Mr. Teavee: Unharmed? What are you talking about?!
Mike: [in high-pitched voice] Just put me back in the other way.
Wonka: There is no other way. It's television, not telephone. It's quite a difference.
