Other Mother[edit]

  • I thought we'd play a game!
  • I'll give you to the count of three. One... Two... THREE!
  • Coraline, how dare you disobey your mother?!
  • You know I love you.
  • Now you're going to stay here forever.


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


Coraline: I almost fell down a well yesterday, Mom.
Mother: [unconcerned] Uh-huh.
Coraline: I could've died.
Mother: That's nice.
Coraline: Hmm. So, can I go out? I think it's perfect weather for gardening.
Mother: No, Coraline. Rain makes mud. Mud makes a mess.
Coraline: But, Mom, I want stuff growing when my friends come to visit. Isn't that why we moved here?
Mother: Something like that. But then we had the accident.
Coraline: It wasn't my fault you hit that truck.
Mother: I never said it was.
Coraline: I can't believe it. You and Dad get paid to write about plants, and you hate dirt.
Mother: Coraline, I don't have time for you right now, and you still have unpacking to do. Lots of unpacking.
Coraline: [sarcastically] That sounds exciting.

Mr. Bobinsky: Hey, Caroline! [speaking Russian] 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.

Forcible: Our lives for the theatre, April!

Forcible: What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason!

Spink: In apprehension, how like a god!
Forcible: The beauty of the world!
Spink: The paragon of animals!

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]

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...
