- 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!
