Some journeys take us far from home. Some adventures lead us to our destiny.taglines


  • Welcome Peter, son of Adam. Welcome Susan and Lucy, daughters of Eve. And welcome to you, Beavers. You have my thanks. But where is the fourth?
  • If the witch understood the true meaning of sacrifice, she might have interpreted the Deep Magic differently, for when a willing victim who has committed no treachery, dies in a traitor’s stead, the stone table will crack and even death itself will turn backwards.
  • Do not recite the Deep Magic to me, Witch! I was there when it was written.
  • To the glistening Eastern sea, I give you Queen Lucy, the Valiant. To the great Western Wood, King Edmund the Just. To the radiant Southern sun, Queen Susan, the Gentle; and to the clear Northern sky I give you King Peter, the Magnificent. Once a king or queen of Narnia, always a king or queen. May your wisdom grace us 'til the stars rain down from the heavens.

Lucy Pevensie[edit]

  • Narnia! It's all in the wardrobe just like I told you!
  • [To Edmund] That's alright, some little children just don't know when to stop pretending.

Peter Pevensie[edit]

  • [to Mr. Beaver] I think you've made a mistake. We're not heroes!

Susan Pevensie[edit]

  • Peter, just because some man in a red coat gives you a sword it doesn't make you a hero!

Edmund Pevensie[edit]

  • [mocking Lucy] Find any new countries in the cupboard lately?
  • [After Susan throws a snowball at him, which hits him in the shoulder] Ow! Stop it!

Mr. Tumnus[edit]

  • Always winter, never Christmas.


Lucy: [holds out her hand] Pleased to meet you.
[Mr. Tumnus looks at her hand curiously]
Lucy: Oh, you shake it.
Mr. Tumnus: Why?
Lucy: I…I don't know. People do that when they meet each other.

Edmund: Why can't we play hide-and-seek again?
Peter: I thought you said it was a kids' game.
Susan: Besides, we could all use the fresh air.
Edmund: It's not like there isn't air inside....

White Witch: Tell me, Edmund. Are your sisters deaf?
Edmund: No.
White Witch: And your brother. Is he unintelligent?
Edmund: Well, I think so. But Mum says...
White Witch: [gets up from her throne, furious] Then HOW DARE YOU COME ALONE?!
Edmund: I tried!
White Witch: Edmund, I asked so little of you.
Edmund: They just don't listen to me!

Mr. Beaver: "When Adam's Flesh and Adam's bone sits in Cair Paravel in throne, the evil time will be over and done."
Susan: You know, that doesn't really rhyme.
Mr. Beaver: Yeah, I know it don't, but you're kind of missing the point!

Edmund: Well, I believe you.
Lucy: You do?
Edmund: Yeah, of course. Didn't I tell you about the football field in the bathroom cupboard?
Peter: Oh, will you just stop. You just have to make everything worse, don't you?
Edmund: It's just a joke.
Peter: When are you gonna learn to grow up?
Edmund: SHUT UP! YOU THINK YOU'RE DAD, BUT YOU'RE NOT! [Edmund runs out of the room]
Susan: Well, that was nicely handled. [Susan leaves the room as well]

Susan: Do you think we'll need jam?
Peter: Only if the Witch serves toast!

Mrs. Beaver: You've been sneaking second helpings, haven't you?
Mr. Beaver: Well, you never know if your next meal's going to be your last. Especially with your cooking.

Aslan: That is Cair Paravel, Castle of the four thrones. In one of which you will sit, as High King. [Peter looks down] You doubt the prophecy?
Peter: No, that's just it. Aslan, I'm not who you think I am.
Aslan: Peter Pevensie, formerly of Finchley. Beaver also mentioned that you planned on turning him into a hat. [chuckles] Peter, there is a deep magic more powerful than any of us. It defines right from wrong. It over sees all our destinies. Yours, and mine.
Peter: But I couldn't reach out over my own family.
Aslan: You brought them safely this far.
Peter: Not all of them.
Aslan: Peter, I will do what I can to save your brother. But I need you to consider what I ask of you. I, too, want my family safe.

[The children step outside, they hear rustles from the bushes. Mr. Beaver approaches.]
Lucy: It's a beaver.
Peter: [Holds out his hand, approaching Mr. Beaver and clicking his tongue] Here, boy. Come here.
Mr. Beaver: [stares at it then sits upright] Well, I ain't gonna smell it, if that's what you want!
