What's your favorite of Gene Wilder's many quotes as Wonka? My top 5 would be:

-"The suspense is terrible. I hope it'll last."
-"Oh if you have any questions, dial information, thank you for calling."
-"RRRRRRound the world and home again, that's the sailor's way!"
-"Little surprises around every corner but NOTHING dangerous."
-"Time is a precious thing. Never waste it."

So shines a good deed in a weary world.

Also, his ramblings while they are riding on the boat- it is so funny how everyone is getting scared or sick, while he just looks nuts. I didn't want to type the whole quote here.

"So much time, so little to do. Wait a minute, strike that, reverse it!"

"Come and live with me in peace and safety, away from all the Wangdoodles and Hornswogglers and Snozzwangers and rotten Vermicious Knids"

"Invention, my dear friends, is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation, and 2% butterscotch ripple"

"Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker"

My favorite moment in the entire movie though is Veruca's song "I want it now!" -
I want a ball
I want a party
Pink macaroons and a million balloons
And performing baboons and ...
Give it to me
Rrhh rhhh

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

I want today
I want tomorrow
I want to wear 'em like braids in my hair
And I don't want to share 'em

I want a party with room fulls of laughter
Ten thousand tons of ice cream
And if I don't get the things I am after
I'm going to scream!

I want the works
I want the whole works
Presents and prizes and sweets and surprises
Of all shapes and sizes
And now
Don't care how
I want it now
Don't care how
I want it now

Willy Wonka: This little piece of gum is a three course dinner.
Mr. Salt: Bull.
Willy Wonka: No, roast beef. But I haven't got it quite right yet.


"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. "


And the newscaster: "Four down, one to go and somewhere out there a lucky person is moving closer and closer to the most sought after prize in history. Though we cannot help but envy whoever he is, and we may feel bitter but we must remember there are more important things, many more important things. Though offhand I cannot think of what they are but I'm sure there must be something."

I actually like all of Mr. Wonka's lines. And the ones of Veruca & Violet were hilarious, too! [Big Grin]

I actually have the Pure Imagination book by the director; a very informative piece indeed (for instance, the photo of the fraudulent 5th ticket winner was that of former Nazi Martin Bormann, an in-joke that didn't quite work as they'd hoped).

I didn't know this was out. I'm going to have to waste some money buying it *again*...

one of the greatest kids movie ever. one of my favorite finds when i was younger. this and "oliver".

Willy Wonka: Try some more. The strawberries taste like strawberries, the snozzberries taste like snozzberries.
Veruca Salt: Snozzberries? Who ever heard of a snozzberry?
Willy Wonka: "We" are the music makers... and "we" are the dreamers of dreams.
