Wednesday, May 29, 2013


The Factory Opens July 2005

 This is a story of an ordinary little boy named Charlie Bucket.
 He was not faster or stronger or more clever than other children.
 His family was not rich or powerful or well-connected.
In fact, they barely had enough to eat.
 Charlie Bucket was the luckiest boy in the entire world.
 He just didn't know it yet.

Grandpa Joe: The man was a genius.
Did you know he invented a new way of making chocolate ice cream
so that it stays cold for hours without a freezer?
You can even leave it lying in the sun on a hot day, and it won't go runny.
Charlie: But that's impossible.
Grandpa Joe: But Willy Wonka did it.

Charlie: But it didn't close forever. It's open right now.
Mrs. Bucket: Sometimes when grown-ups say 'forever', they mean 'a very long time'.

 Nothing's impossible, Charlie.
~Grandma Georgina

 Charlie, about Veruca: I don't think that was really fair. She didn't find the ticket herself.
 Grandpa Joe: Don't worry about it, Charlie, that man spoils his daughter.
 And no good ever comes from spoiling a child like that.

 Grandpa Joe: Read it aloud. Let's hear exactly what it says.
 Mr. Bucket: "Greetings to you, the lucky finder of this golden ticket, from Mr. Willy Wonka.
 I shake you warmly by the hand.
For now, I invite you to my factory and be my guest for one whole day."
Violet: "I, Willy Wonka, will conduct you around the factory myself showing you everything there is to see."
 Augustus: "Afterwards, when it is time to leave,
you will be escorted home by a procession of large trucks each one filled with all the chocolate you could ever eat."
Veruca: "And remember, one of you lucky 5 children will receive an extra price beyond your wildest imagination.
Now, here are your instructions." 
Mike: "On the 1st of February, you must come to the factory gates at 10 AM sharp.
  You're allowed to bring one member of your family to look after you.
Until then, Willy Wonka." 

No, we're not going.
 A woman offered me $500 for the ticket.
 I bet someone else would pay more.
We need the money more than we need the chocolate.
~Charlie Bucket

 There's plenty of money out there.
They print more every day.
 But this ticket, there's only 5 of them in the whole world and that's all there's ever going to be.
 Only a dummy would give this up for something as common as money.
 ~Grandpa George

 Violet, hug him: Mr. Wonka, I'm Violet Beauregarde.
Willy Wonka: Oh, I don't care.
Violet: Well, you should care, because I'm gonna win the special prize at the end.
 Willy Wonka: You do seem confident, and confidence is key.
Veruca: I'm Veruca Salt. It's very nice to meet you, sir. 
Willy Wonka: I always thought a verruca was a type of wart you got on the bottom of your foot.
 Augustus: I'm Augustus Gloop. I love your chocolate.
Willy Wonka: I can see that. So do I.
 I never expected to have so much in common.
[to Mike] You. You're Mike Teavee. You're the little devil who cracked the system.
 [to Charlie] And you... well, you're just lucky to be here, aren't you?

 [as they enter the chocolate room]
 Do be careful, my dear children.
Don't lose your heads.
 Don't get overexcited.
Just keep very calm. 
~Willy Wonka

 Mrs. Gloop: Where is my son? Where does that pipe go to?
 Willy Wonka: That pipe, it just so happens to lead directly to the room where I make delicious strawberry-flavored, chocolate-coated fudge.
 Mrs. Gloop: Then he will be made into strawberry-flavored, 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-flavored, chocolate-coated Gloop? Eww.
 No one would buy it.

 Charlie: Mr. Wonka, why did you decide to let people in?
 Willy Wonka: So they could see the factory, of course.
Charlie: But why now? And why only 5?

 Willy Wonka: These squirrels are specially trained to get the nuts out of shells.
 Mr. Salt: Why use squirrels? Why not use Oompa-Loompas?
Willy Wonka: Because only squirrels can get the whole walnut out almost every single time.

 Mike: Why is everything here completely pointless?
 Charlie: Candy doesn't have to have a point.
That's why it's candy.

 Willy Wonka: Are you ready to leave all this behind and come live with me at the factory?
 Charlie: Sure, of course.
I mean, it's all right if my family come to?
 Willy Wonka: Oh, my dear boy, of course they can't.
 You can't run a chocolate factory with a family hanging over you like an old dead goose.
 A chocolatier has to run free and solo. He has to follow his dreams. Gosh darn the consequences.
 Look at me, I had no family, and I'm a giant success.
Charlie: So if I go with you to the factory, I won't ever see my family again?
 Willy Wonka: Yeah, consider that a bonus.
Charlie: Then I'm not going. 
I wouldn't give up my family for anything. 
Not for all the chocolate in the world. 
Willy Wonka: Oh, I see. That's weird.
There's other candy too besides chocolate. 
Charlie: I'm sorry, Mr. Wonka. I'm staying here. 
Willy Wonka: Wow, that's weird... and unexpected...

 Willy Wonka: What makes you feel better when you feel terrible?
 Charlie: My family.
Willy Wonka: Ew.
Charlie: What do you have against my family?
 Willy Wonka: It's not just your family. It's the whole idea of...
 They always tell you what to do, what not to do, and it's not conducive to a creative atmosphere.
 Charlie: Usually they're just tying to protect you because they love you.
