Mr. Turkentine: I’ve just decided to switch our Friday schedule to Monday, which means that the test we take each Friday on what we learned during the week will now take place on Monday before we’ve learned it. But since today is Tuesday, it doesn’t matter in the slightest.
Willy Wonka: No other factory in the world mixes its chocolate by waterfall.
Willy Wonka: Next time, try to open your mouth a little wider when you speak.
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?
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?
Mrs. Teevee: Is that Japanese?
Wonka: No, that’s Wonkawash spelled backwards.
