DialogueEdit

[first lines]
Wallace: Gee, these bank holidays. It's a problem to decide. Tell you what, Gromit lad!
[Gromit wakes up]
Wallace: Let's have a nice hot cup of tea, hm? [walks out of the room] Kettle should have boiled by now.

Wallace: No cheese, Gromit. Not a bit in the house.

Wallace: Gromit, that's it! Cheese! We'll go somewhere where there's cheese!
[Wallace looks at "Cheese Holidays" magazine, then out window]
Wallace: Everybody knows the moon is made of cheese...

Wallace: 60 seconds to blast off! Unlock the doors!

Wallace: No crackers Gromit! We've forgotten the crackers!

Wallace: [referring to "The Cooker"] Oh! Daylight robbery! They always nick your money. Flippin' machines. Come on, Gromit.

[The machine doesn't work]
Wallace: Come on, stupid...
[The machine still doesn't work]
Wallace: [stunned slightly] Oh!

[Wallace is eating the moon]
Wallace: It's like no cheese I've ever tasted. Let's try another spot.

Wallace: Oh no! Oh! The fuse! You forgot to light the fuse! Ah!
