Hoggle: You need to understand my position: I’m a coward. And Jareth scares me.
Sarah: What kind of position is that?
Hoggle: No position! That’s my point. And you wouldn’t be so brave if you’d ever smelled the Bog of Eternal Stench. It’s, it’s…
Sarah: Is that all it does, it smells?
Hoggle: Oh, believe me, that’s enough. But the worst thing is, if you so much as put a foot in the Bog of Stench, you’ll smell bad for the rest of your life. It’ll never wash off.
The Worm: ‘Ello.
Sarah: Did you say…hello?
The Worm: No, I said “‘ello,” but that’s close enough.
Jareth: You remind me of the babe.
Chorus: What babe?
Jareth: The babe with the power.
Chorus: What power?
Jareth: The power of Voo Doo.
Chorus: Who do?
Jareth: You do.
Chorus: Do what?
Jareth: Remind me of the babe!
Jareth: Just fear me, love me, do as I say, and I will be your slave.
Sarah: Through dangers untold, and heartships unnumbered, I fought my way here to the castle, beyond the Goblin City, to take back the child that you have stolen. For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great…you have no power over me.
Jareth: It’s only forever, not long at all.
Ear Knocker: You’re a wonderful conversational companion!
Mouth Knocker: You can’t talk, all you do is moan!
Ear Knocker: No good…can’t hear you.
Sarah: That’s not fair!
Jareth: You say that so often. I wonder what your basis for comparison is?
