Coraline is a 2009 American stop-motion 3-D horror-fantasy film based on Neil Gaiman's 2002 novel of the same name about a young girl who finds a secret door into another world, which at first seems to be a much better version of her life, but things soon turn dangerous.

Directed by Henry Selick. Written by Henry Selick (screenplay) and Neil Gaiman (book).

Coraline[edit]

  • I can't believe it. You and Dad get paid to write about plants, and you hate dirt.
  • [Singing] Oh my twitchy witchy girl, i think you are so nice, I give you bowls of porridge and I give you bowls of ice...

creeeeaam. I give you lots of kisses, I give you lots of hugs, but I never give you sandwiches with grease and worms and mung...beans.

  • EVIL WITCH!! I'M NOT SCARED!!''

Other Mother[edit]

  • Now you're going to stay here forever.
  • DON'T LEAVE ME! DON'T LEAVE ME! I WILL DIE WITHOUT YOU!
  • You dare disobey your mother?!
  • Coraline, How dare you disobey your mother?
  • I thought we'd play a game *taps fingers*

Other[edit]

  • Cat: You probably think this world is a dream come true... but you're wrong.
  • Sweet Ghost Girl: Be clever, Miss. Even if you win, she'll never let you go.
  • Octopus Toy: Yeah! I wanna hug your face!

Dialogue[edit]

Coraline: I almost fell down a well, yesterday, Mom.

Other Mother: You know I love you.
Coraline: You...(braces herself) have a very funny way of showing it.

Mr. Bobinsky: Caroline, wait! The mice asked me to give you message.
Coraline: The jumping mice?
Mr. Bobinsky: They are saying, "Do not go through little door." Do you know such a thing?
Coraline: The one behind the wallpaper? But it's all bricked up.
Mr. Bobinsky: Ah. So sorry, is nothing. Sometimes mice are little mixed up. They even get your name wrong, you know? They call you "Coraline" instead of "Caroline." Not "Caroline" at all! Maybe I work them too hard.

Wybie: The (tilts his head) Cat? Uh, okay, I'll just tell grandma (hops over Coraline's bed and heads for the exit) that you couldn't find the doll...
Coraline: You're NOT LISTENING TO ME!
Wybie: That's 'cause you're CRAZY! Aahhh! (almost gets hit with a shoe)
Coraline: You creep!
Wybie: CRAZY! (hops on motorcycle and speeds off)
Coraline: CRAZY?! YOU'RE THE JERKWAD THAT GAVE ME THE DOLL!!

Coraline: (about the Other Mother) Why does she want me?
Cat: She wants something to love, I think... something that isn't her. (pauses) Or maybe she'd just love something to eat.
Coraline: Eat? That's ridiculous, mothers don't eat... daughters.
Cat: I don't know. How do you taste? [chuckles]

Other Mother: You came and you brought vermin with you.
Coraline: No I brought a friend.
Other Mother: You know I love you.
Coraline: Well you have a very funny way of showing it.

Spink: Ready to break a leg, Miriam?
Forcible: Our lives for the theatre, April!

Forcible: What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason!
Spink: How infinite in faculty! In form and moving, how express and admirable!
Forcible: In action, like an angel!
Spink: In apprehension, how like a god!
Forcible: The beauty of the world!
Spink: The paragon of animals!

Other Mother: Now,you're going to stay here for ever.
Coraline: No....I'm....NOT! (throws cat at the other mother)
Other Mother: NO! YOU HORRIBLE CHEATING GIRL!
