Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Quotations

Willy Wonka: Oh, you should never, never doubt what nobody is sure about.

Willy Wonka: The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last.

Mr. Turkentine: Of course you don’t know! You don’t know because only I know. If you knew and I didn’t know, then you’d be teaching me instead of me teaching you–and for a student to be teaching his teacher is presumptuous and rude. Do I make myself clear?

Willy Wonka:
There’s no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There’s no knowing where we’re rowing
Or which way the river’s flowing
Is it raining?
Is it snowing?
Is a hurricane a-blowing?
Not a speck of light is showing
So the danger must be growing
Are the fires of hell a-glowing?
Is the grisly reaper mowing?
Yes, the danger must be growing
‘Cause the rowers keep on rowing
And they’re certainly not showing
Any signs that they are slowing!

Willy Wonka: (singing) There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination. Living there, you’ll be free if you truly wish to be.

Willy Wonka: Bubbles, bubbles everywhere, and not a drop to drink… yet.

Willy Wonka: (singing) If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it. Want to change the world? There’s nothing to it.

Willy Wonka: If the good Lord had intended us to walk he wouldn’t have invented roller-skates.

Mr. Salt: Wonka! Butterscotch? Buttergin? You running something on the side here?
Willy Wonka: Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker!

Willy Wonka: Everything inside is eatable, I mean edible, I mean you can eat everything.

Violet Beauregard: What is this, some kind of freak out?

Charlie: What was that we just went through?
Wonka: Hsawaknow.
Mrs. Teevee: Is that Japanese?
Wonka: No, that’s Wonkawash spelled backwards.

Willy Wonka: Where is fancy bred, in the heart or in the head?

Willy Wonka: So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.

Mr. Salt: What is this, Wonka, some kind of funhouse?
Willy Wonka: Why, are you having fun?

Mrs. Gloop: My son! He’ll be made into marshmallows in five seconds!
Wonka: Impossible, my dear lady! That’s absurd! Unthinkable!
Mrs. Gloop: Why?!
Wonka: Because that pipe doesn’t go to the marshmallow rooom! It goes to the fudge room!
Mrs. Gloop: You terrible man!

Willy Wonka: Buttons, buttons, whose got the button?

Willy Wonka: We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of the dreams.

Willy Wonka: And Charlie, don’t forget what happened to the man who suddenly got everything he’d ever wished for.
Charlie: What happened?
Willy Wonka: He lived happily ever after.

Sam Beauregarde: Don’t talk to me about contracts, Wonka, I use them myself. They’re strictly for suckers.

Willy Wonka: So shines a good deed in a weary world.

Grandpa Joe: If she’s a lady, then I’m a Vermicious Knid!

Willy Wonka: Don’t you know what this is?
Violet Beauregarde: By gum, it’s gum!

Veruca: (singing) I want the world. I want the whole world. I want to lock it all up in my pocket. It’s my bar of chocolate. Give it to me now.

Willy: Stop, don’t, come back.
