In the office, after Charlie is introduced to Mr. Wilkinson, Wonka puts his hands on Charlie's shoulders. You can hear Wonka say, "You've won," but his lips don't move (at 01:35:20, but it's Wonka's chin that doesn't move since the camera cut to a shot of Charlie from behind Wonka at 01:35:18 while Wonka was saying "I had to test you Charlie" and we saw Wonka's chin moving then, just before he says "You won!" without his chin moving).
At the same time as the end credits are playing, the film shows the Wonkavator rising higher and higher.
