If you would like to add another quote to the page, you may first need to remove one that is already there in order to keep within the bounds of fair use of copyright material.
For reference, the length of this work is: 115 minutes.

I've removed the following quote: (Charlie is cleaning Willy Wonka's shoes and Wonka believes that Charlie does not know he is Wonka, as his head is behind a newspaper)
Willy Wonka: Wow, Wonka sales are going down.
Charlie: I know.
Willy Wonka: That Wonka must be upset. You ever met him?
Charlie: Once. I thought he was cool, but now I think he's awful. He also has a bad hair cut.
Willy Wonka (putting his paper down in anger): I do not!!!

It's not what was actually said. The IMDB has a closer version, but I don't think that's right either - it seems to be missing a few lines:

Willy Wonka: [hiding behind a newspaper while Charlie shines his shoes] Too bad about that chocolate guy. Walter... er, Waldo...

Charlie Bucket: Willy Wonka.

Willy Wonka: Right, him. Did you ever meet him? Charlie Bucket: I met him. I thought he was great at first. Then he didn't turn out that nice. And he has a funny haircut. Willy Wonka: [throwing the newspaper down] I do not!

I'm not sure what the policy is on matters like these, so I've just left it out. Was that the right decision? --82.32.56.142 22:42, 10 August 2005 (UTC)

Actually, the thing goes like this...


Willy Wonka: [hiding behind a newspaper while Charlie shines his shoes] Pity about that chocolate fellow. Wendell... or, Walter... Charlie Bucket: Willy Wonka.

Willy Wonka: That's the one. Says here in the paper his new candies aren't selling very well, but I suppose maybe he's a rotten egg who deserves it.

Charlie Bucket: Yep.

Willy Wonka: Oh really? You ever met him?

Charlie Bucket: I did. I thought he was great at first, but then he didn't turn out so nice. He also has funny hair cut.

Willy Wonka: [throwing the newspaper down] I do not!
