Included among the "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die", edited by Steven Schneider.
Bill, candy store owner:
All right, all right, all right, what's it going to be? A Triple Cream Cup for Christopher. A Sizzler for June Marie. And listen!
Bill, candy store owner: Wonka's got a new one today.
Children: What is it?
Bill, candy store owner: This is called a Scrumpdiddlyumptious Bar.
Wonka misquotes "The Merchant of Venice" with his line "So shines a good deed in a weary world." The actual line from William Shakespeare uses "naughty" in place of "weary".
At the same time as the end credits are playing, the film shows the Wonkavator rising higher and higher.
