Something wicked this way hops.(taglines)


  • [to Gromit, while holding a carrot and wearing giant rabbit ears] Er, what's up, dog?
  • It's a veritable... vegetable... paradise!
  • Just a bit of harmless brain alteration, that's all.
  • Lovely food, for rabbits, that is.
  • Still got me on the diet, eh, Gromit? Watching me shape. Ha Ha, there's a good dog.
  • I'm just crackers about cheese!
  • [at the Academy Awards of his and Gromit's movie, presented by Reese Witherspoon] Ooh! I do like a bit of Gorgonzola.
  • Veg bad...veg bad...veg bad. Say no to carrots, cabbage, and cauliflower.

Lady Campanula Tottington[edit]

  • Please, Wallace, call me "Totty".
  • Run, rabbit, run!
  • [to Victor after knocking him out with a giant carrot] Is that so? Consider yourself dumped! Humph!

Lord Victor Quartermaine[edit]

  • There's No nonsense with Victor Quartermaine. What you see is what you get. [his toupee is sucked into a rabbit hole and Lady Tottington screams]
  • [Complaining of Wallace's job] How do you intended to finish these vermin off? Crush them? [Kicks the BunnyVac 6000] Liquidize them?
  • I Want. [Silence] To. [groans quietly] To pay, please.
  • [Growls] Out of my way fool.
  • [After firing a shot to get the crowd's attention] A were-rabbit? Oh come, come now! I do believe the Vicar's been at the communion wine again.
  • [taunting Wallace in attack] C’mon! Queensberry rules! Put ‘em up you little pipsqueak. [Wallace starts shaking] Hahahaha! You’re shaking! Don’t tell me you’re a scaredy-cat as well as a scoundrel. And don’t think acting like a big girl’s blouse will get you out of it. There’s no mercy with Victor Quartermaine!
  • [Seeing Lady Tottington crying] That's right, my lovely. You can say goodbye to your fluffy lover boy.
  • [Stopping Gromit from saving Wallace] Your loyalty is moving. Sadly, you won't be.
  • [Sees Were-Rabbit with Tottington] Get your hairy mits off my future wife you big brute.
  • [Shoves a pitchfork in Lady Tottington's hair] Hmmmm, I rather like your hair pinned back...
  • [Watching the were-rabbit hop away] You can hop, but you can't hide, Pesto!
  • [Wallace falls to his death] No one beats Victor Quartermaine!

PC Mackintosh[edit]

  • [The Were-Rabbit is teetering on the roof of Tottington Hall, above a group of terrified villagers] Stand back! There may be a large rabbit dropping!
  • Hey! Give over!
  • If you ask me, this was arson! Aye, somebody "arson" [arsin'] around!

Hutch the Rabbit[edit]

  • Cheeeeeeese!
  • Ooh, I do like a bit of gorgonzola!
  • Ah, the bounce has gone from his bungee.
  • Hey, Presto! Rabbit rehabilitation!
  • Cheddar.
  • I'm inventing, mostly.
  • Charming. I'm Wallace.
  • Geronimo!
  • Your Lordship!
  • Good night, Gromit.
  • Cracking toast, Gromit.
  • I'm just crackers about cheese.
  • Monterey Jack! Wow!
  • Smashing Wensleydale!
  • Job well done, lad.
  • Lovely food. For rabbits, that is.
  • Cheese, Gromit!
  • Heehee! Lovely cheese, Gromit!
  • Don't forget the crackers.
  • [final line] Cheeeeeeese!

Reverend Clement Hedges[edit]

  • [praying] Protect and nourish the frail and the weak, O Lord. Let them grow big and strong under Thy loving care. [camera pulls back, revealing that he is talking about his vegetables] In fact, let them grow bigger and stronger than anyone else's, so that the first prize might be mine! [applies a drop of holy water] Aaaaaaa-men!
  • [holding up a pair of cucumbers like a cross] MERRRRCYYYYYYYYYY!
  • By tampering with nature, forcing vegetables to swell far beyond their natural size, we have brought a terrible judgement upon ourselves! And for our sins, a hideous creature has been sent to punish us all! Repent! Repent! Lest you, too, taste the wrath of... THE WERE-RABBIT!
  • My poor sensitive child, allow us all to share in your moment of sorrow. [begins to walk away] YEEEEEEEEAAAAAHHH! [fireworks begin to go off and jolly music plays] ON WITH THE SHOW!
  • [witnessing Victor Quartermaine caught on a weather-vane by his trousers, showing his rear end to all below] Beware the moon!
  • Destroy! Drive out the monstrosity!

Mr. Growbag[edit]

  • I never saw such cauliflower carnage! Worse than the Great Slug Blight of '32. When there were slugs the size of pigs.
  • [On the history of the Giant Vegetable Competition] That's right! Not even the Great Duck Plague of '53 stopped it.


Lady Tottington: [over the phone] I have the most terrible rabbit problem. The competition is only days away. You simply have to do something.
Wallace: Certainly, M'am [to Gromit] I think we're about to go up in the world, lad. [back to the phone] Just stay right where you are, Your Ladyship, and we'll be there in an- [hits the control panel and gets dragged up through the ceiling] Ahhhh!
Tottington: In an hour? I can't wait an hour. I have a major infestation.

Tottington: Victor, hadn’t we agreed: no more thoughtless killing.
Victor: Quite right, my dear. So I've thought this through very carefully. [aims gun at a rabbit, who puts his paws up] It's off to bunny heaven for you, big-ears!

[Quartermaine's hairpiece has been sucked up into the Bun-Vac 6000.]
Lord Victor Quartermaine: I want... [lowers voice] toupeé, please.
Wallace: Oh, Grand. We take check or cash.
Victor: TOUPEÉ, you idiot! My hair is in in your machine!
Wallace: Oh, no, it's only rabbits in there. The hare, I think you'll find, is a much larger mammal.
Victor: Oh, out of my way, you! [retrieves his toupeé; to Lady Tottington] I'm sorry, my dear. [the toupeé is actually a black bunny] But I refuse to suffer any more humiliation at the hands of these blundering nitwits. I therefore bid you good day!

Reverend Clement Hedges: Hello? Is anybody there?
[The Were-Rabbit lets out an enormous belch.]
Rev. Hedges: Mrs. Mulch?

Mr. Growbag: I never saw such cauliflower carnage! Worse than the Great Slug Blight of '32. When there were slugs the size of pigs.
Mrs. Mulch: Growbag's right! The slugs are back!
PC Macintosh: [surveying the damage left by the Were-Rabbit] Look, this flippin' vegetable competition causes nothing but trouble every year.
Man 1: Here we go.
Macintosh: [surveying the damage left by the Were-Rabbit] If you ask me-
Man 2: Get on with you!
Macintosh: No, I'll tell ya. If you ask me, this was arson.
[The townspeople gasp.]
Man 3: Arson?
Macintosh: Aye. Someone arsin' around! That's right! One of you lot! A man!

Victor: [in the forest] I know your little secret, Pesto! I know exactly what's going on!
Wallace: Your Lordship?
Victor: Oh, yes. You think you can pilfer my filly, don't you? You think you can con an innocent woman out of her fortune?
Wallace: Who, me?
Victor: Well, I got here first! I've spent a lot of time reeling in that fluffy-headed bunny-lover, and I'm not about to let some puddle-headed peasant poach her from me! Comprendez?

Clement Hedges: The beast lurks within all of us, my child. [thunderclap] The side of us that emerges at night as the moon rises into the sky! The side that savagely rips the leaves off any innocent cabbage...!
Victor: Oh, spare me the sermon, Vicar! Just tell me how I kill him! Er, I mean 'it'.
Clement: To kill such a creature would require nerves of steel, and...[pause]... a bullet. [thunderclap]
Victor: A bullet? [thunderclap]
Hedges: A bullet! [thunderclap]
Victor: A bull-? [louder thunderclap] Ooh! [closes window to blot out noise] What KIND of bullet?
Hedges: A bullet... of pure... gold! [opens his cabinet to show the gold bullets]
Victor: [amused] Gold?
Hedges: Yes... 24 'karot'! [giggles]
Victor: [unamused] Oh. Get out of my way. [takes the bullets] Silly old fool.
Hedges: [as Victor walks out the door] Beware! Beware the beast within!

Wallace: Oh, it's hopeless! I'll never fix this flippin' machine. Me mind's just a rabbit-y mush. Oh, Gromit! I don't wanna be a giant rabbit! [sobbing]
Hutch the Rabbit: Aww, the bounce is gone from his bungee.

Reverend Clement Hedges: [at the fair] Ah, Mr. Growbag. I have a hunch this will be a night to remember.
Mr Growbag: [looks at his back] I just have a hunch.

[Everyone thinks Victor's a hero]
Civilian 1: Please, sir... [holds up vegetable] kiss my baby!
Victor: Another time, perhaps.
Civilian 2: [holds up vegetable] Kiss my potato!
Victor: Not now.
Mr. Growbag: Kiss my artichoke! [holds up his vegetable]
Victor: Look, just-
Tottington: Victor.
Victor: Campanula!
Tottington: Victor, I have to know. Did it suffer?
Victor: Of course not, my dear. [sotto] Not yet, anyway.

Victor: [whispering] Listen, I don't want to cause any panic, but the beast isn't actually dead yet.
Mactinosh: [speaking through megaphone] THE BEAST ISN'T ACTUALLY DEAD YET?! [everyone turns around and hear what he said, all shocked] Oops!
