Willy Wonka Quotes

Monday, August 8 by Anarch

Whether you like Johnny Depp or you're a fan of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," chances are you'll love this list of Willy Wonka quotes. Willy Wonka is a very fun, yet socially awkward and strange young man who invites several children and their families to come tour his candy-making facility. While there, Willy Wonka decides it's time for him to find a heir to his legacy. Willy Wonka quotes are some of the best lines in the entire movie and are sure to get some laughs amongst your friends. Be sure to give these a try.

  1. Heir. Some of the funniest Willy Wonka quotes are simple plays on words, like when Willy looks at the grandparents with their silver hair and says "I realized in that moment, "I must find a heir."
  2. Short. Do you remember the Willy Wonka quote from when he first meets the childen?  "You're all quite short, aren't you?" Of course, Willy says he was never as short as they were. He remembers putting his hat on his head.
  3. Gloop. After Augustus Gloop gets sucked up the chocolate chute, Willy Wonka asks, "Uh, well… sometimes only half of the little pieces find their way through. If you had to choose only one half of your son, which one would it be?" This funny Willy Wonka quote certainly throws Mrs. Gloop for a loop!
  4. Mumbler. Mike begins to rant, "You don't understand anything about science! First off, there's a difference between waves and particles! DUH! Second, the amount of power it would take to convert energy into matter would be like nine atomic bombs!" This great Willy Wonka quote is excellent for taking care of rude children. Simply declare loudly, "MUMBLER! Seriously, I can't understand a word you're saying!"
  5. Cannibal. One of the funniest Willy Wonka quotes is an aside, as Willy shows the children and parents his meadow. "Do you like my meadow? Try some of my grass! Please have a blade, please do, it's so delectable and so darn good looking!" Charlie Bucket asks, "You can eat the grass?" to which Willy Wonka replies, "Of course you can! Everything in this room is eatable, even I'm eatable! But that is called "cannibalism," my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies."
  6. Oompa Loompa. "Of course they're real people. They're Oompa Loompas," says our favorite candymaker in this great Willy Wonka quote. "Oompa Loompas?" asks Mr. Salt. "Imported. Direct from Loompaland."
  7. Soap. Grandma Georgina says, "You smell like peanuts. I love peanuts." What would be a great Willy Wonka quote to answer this? "Oh, thank you. You smell like… old people. And soap. I like it."
  8. Wake up. A great Willy Wonka quote to wake your children up to is "Good morning, starshine… the earth says hello!" Just don't let them do what the puppets did.
  9. Elevator. Willy Wonka spends a lot of time running into his glass elevator. One of the best Willy Wonka quotes is his reminder that "I've got to be more careful where I park this thing." Ever wonder if Wonder Woman had that problem with her invisible jet?
  10. Nuts. And one of the dirtiest Willy Wonka quotes has to be, "Little girl? Don't touch that squirrel's nuts! It'll make him crazy!" Oh my. Awkward to hear in a kid's movie!
