Mr. Salt: What is this, Wonka? Some kind of funhouse?
Willy Wonka: Why? Having fun?
Mrs. Gloop: What a disgusting, dirty river!
Mr. Salt: Industrial waste, that. You've ruined your watershed Wonka: it's polluted.
Willy Wonka: It's chocolate.
Veruca Salt: That's chocolate?
Charlie Bucket: That's chocolate!
Mr. Salt: You sure this thing'll float, eh Wonka?
Willy Wonka: With your buoyancy, sir, rest assured.
Oompa Loompas: [singing] Oompa Loompa doopadee do/I've got another puzzle for you/Oompa loompa doopadee dee/If you are wise you'll listen to me/Gum chewing's fine when it's once in a while/It stops you from smoking and brightens your smile/But it's repulsive, revoulting, and wrong/chewing and chewing all day long/The way that a cow does/Oompa Loompa doopadee dah/Given good manners, you will go far/You will live in happiness too/Like the Oompa Loompa doopadee doo.
Veruca Salt: I want to go in! Don't you dare stop me!
Mr. Salt: I'm only trying to help you, sweetheart.
Veruca Salt: Give me that pen!
[Veruca grabs the pen from Violet]
Veruca Salt: You're always making things difficult.
Grandpa Joe: But this roof is made of glass, it'll shatter into a thousand pieces. We-We'll be cut to ribbons!
Willy Wonka: Probably.
Willy Wonka: And almost everything you'll see is eatable, edible. I mean, you can eat almost everything.
Violet Beauregarde: [while digging in a nostril] Spitting's a dirty habit.
Willy Wonka: I know a worse one.
Willy Wonka: So who can I trust to run the factory when I leave and take care of the Oompa Loopa's for me? Not a grown up. A grown up would want to do everything his own way, not mine. So that's why I decided a long time ago that I had to find a child. A very honest, loving child, to whom I could tell all my most precious candy making secrets.
Charlie Bucket: So that's why you sent out the golden tickets!
Willy Wonka: That's right. So the factory is yours, Charlie. You can move in immediately.
Grandpa Joe: And me?
Willy Wonka: Absolutely.
Charlie Bucket: But what happens to the rest...?
Willy Wonka: The whole family. I want you to bring them all.
