Once again, you really shouldn't mumble, 'cause it's really starting to bum me out!

Willy Wonka: [coming upon a tiny door] An important room, this. It is a chocolate factory, after all.
Mike Teavee: Then, why's the door so small?
Willy Wonka: That's to keep all the great big chocolatey flavor inside.

Try some of my grass! Please have a blade, please do, it's so delectable and so darn good looking.

I've tried it on, like, 20 Oompa Loompahs and each one ended up as a blueberry. It's just weird!

Charlie Bucket: So... if I go with you, to live in your factory, I'll never see my family again?
Willy Wonka: Yeah! Consider that a bonus!

The waterfall is most important. Mixes the chocolate. Churns it up, makes it light and frothy. By the way, no other factory in the world mixes its chocolate by waterfall, my dear children, and you can take that to the bank.

Willy Wonka: My name is Willy Wonka.
Veruca Salt: Then shouldn't you be up there?
[points to stage]
Willy Wonka: Well, I couldn't very well watch the show from up there, now, could I, little girl?

Augustus Gloop: Don't you want to know our names?
Willy Wonka: I can't see how it would matter.

Willy Wonka: What do you think about little raspberry kites?
Charlie Bucket: With licorice instead of string!
Mrs. Bucket: Boys, no business at the dinner table.
Charlie Bucket: Sorry, Mum.
Willy Wonka: I think you're onto something though, Charlie.

Mrs. Gloop: Where is my son? Where does that pipe go to?
Willy Wonka: That pipe happens to go to a room where I make the most delicious kind of strawberry-flavoured chocolate-coated fudge.
Mrs. Gloop: Then he will be made into strawberry-flavoured chocolate-coated fudge? They'll be selling him by the pound all over the world?
Willy Wonka: No, I wouldn't allow it. The taste would be terrible. Can you imagine Augustus-flavoured chocolate-coated Gloop? Ew. No one would buy it.

Mike Teavee: Just put me back in the other way.
Willy Wonka: There is no other way. It's television not telephone, it's quite different.

Uh, you really shouldn't mumble, because I can't understand a word you're saying.
