Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

post #4767 by Martina on May 5th, 2010, last updated May 5, 2010 Transcript written by and used with the courtesey of Angela Sugden Narrator This is a story of an ordinary little boy named Charlie Bucket. He was not faster or stronger or more clever than other children. His family was not rich, or powerful, or well-connected. In fact, they barely had enough to eat. Charlie Bucket was the luckiest boy in the entire world. He just didn‟t know it yet.

Mr Bucket Evening, Buckets.

Grandpa Joe Evening.

Charlie Hi, Dad.

Mrs Bucket Soup‟s almost ready, darling. Er, don‟t suppose there‟s anything extra to put in, love. Oh well. Nothing goes better with cabbage than cabbage.

Mr Bucket Charlie… I found something I think you‟ll like.

Narrator Charlie‟s father worked at the local toothpaste factory. The hours were long, and the pay was terrible… yet occasionally there were unexpected surprises.

Charlie It‟s exactly what I need.

Grandpa Joe What is it, Charlie?

Charlie Dad found it, just the piece I needed.

Grandpa Joe What piece was it?

Charlie A head for Willy Wonka.

Grandma Josephine Well, how wonderful.

Grandpa Joe It‟s quite a likeness.

Charlie You think so?

Grandpa Joe Think so? I know so. I saw Willy Wonka with my own two eyes. I used to work for him, you know.

Charlie You did?

Grandpa Joe I did?

Grandma Josephine He did.

Grandpa George He did.

Grandma Georgina I love grapes.

Grandpa Joe Of course, I was a much younger man in those days. Willy Wonka began with a single store on Cherry Street. But the whole world wanted his candy. Mr Wonka.

Willy Wonka Yeah?

Grandpa Joe We need more Wonka bars and we‟re out of chocolate birds.

Willy Wonka Birds? Birds. Well then, we‟ll need to make some more. Here. Now open.

Grandpa Joe The man was a genius. Did you know, he invented a new way of making chocolate ice cream, so that it stays cols for hours without a freezer? You can even leave it lying in the sun on a hot day, and it won‟t go runny.

Charlie But that‟s impossible.

Grandpa Joe But Willy Wonka did it. Before long, he decided to build a proper chocolate factory. The largest chocolate factory in history. Fifty times as big as any other.

Charlie Grandpa, don‟t make it gross.

Grandma Josephine Tell him about the Indian prince. He‟d like to hear about that.

Grandpa Joe You mean Prince Pondicherry? Well, Prince Pondicherry wrote a letter to Mr Wonka and asked him to come all the way out to India and build him a colossal palace entirely out of chocolate.

Willy Wonka It will have one hundred rooms, and everything will be made of either dark or light chocolate.

Grandpa Joe

True to his word, the bricks were chocolate and the cement holding them together was chocolate. All the walls and ceilings were made of chocolate as well. So were the carpets and the pictures, and the furniture.

Prince Pondicherry It is perfect in every way.

Willy Wonka Yeah, but it won‟t last long. You better start eating right now.

Prince Pondicherry Oh, nonsense. I will not eat my palace. I intend to live in it.

Grandpa Joe But Mr Wonka was right, of course. Soon after this, there came a very hot day with a boiling sun. the prince sent and urgent telegram requesting a new palace, but Willy Wonka was facing problems of his own. All the other chocolate makers, you see, had grown jealous of Mr Wonka. They began sending in spies to steal his secret recipes. Ficklegruber started making an ice cream that would never melt. Prodnose came out with a chewing gum that never lost its flavour. Then Slugworth began making candy balloons that you could blow up to incredible sizes. The thievery got so bad that one day, without warning Mr Wonka told every single one of his workers to go home. He announced that he was closing his chocolate factory for ever.

Willy Wonka I‟m closing my chocolate factory. . . for ever. I‟m sorry.

Charlie But it didn‟t close for ever. It‟s open right now.

Mrs Bucket Ah, yes. Well, sometimes when grown-ups say „for ever‟, they mean „a very long time‟.

Grandpa George Such as, „I feel like I‟ve eaten nothing but cabbage soup for ever‟.

Mr Bucket Now, Pops.

Grandma Josephine The factory did close, Charlie.

Grandpa Joe And it seemed like it was going to be closed for ever. Then one day we saw smoke rising from the chimneys. The factory was back in business.

Charlie Did you get your job back?

Grandpa Joe No. No one did.

Charlie But there must be people working there.

Grandma Josephine Think about it, Charlie. Have you ever seen a single person going into that factory, or coming out of it?

Charlie No. The gates are always closed.

Grandpa Joe Exactly.

Charlie But then, who‟s running the machines?

Mrs Bucket Nobody knows, Charlie.

Mr Bucket It certainly is a mystery.

Charlie Hasn‟t someone asked Mr Wonka?

Charlie. Charlie. Charlie Good night. Good night. already packed and addressed. Grandma Josephine Night-night. It‟s a mystery and it will always be a mystery.Grandpa Joe Nobody sees him anymore. Grandpa George Night. . Grandma Georgina. and see what‟s become of that amazing factory. Mrs Bucket Come on. Charlie Night. Grandpa George Well. Charlie Night-night. That little factory of yours. dear. because you can‟t. Mr Bucket Thank you. is as close as any of us is ever going to get. Grandpa George. Mrs Bucket Chair. Grandma Georgina Nothing‟s impossible. . I‟d give anything in the world just to go in one more time. you won‟t. Grandpa Joe. Charlie. He never comes out. . The only thing that comes out of that place. I think it‟s time we let your grandparents get some sleep. no one can. Charlie. Charlie Good night. is the candy.

Grandma Josephine You have as much chance as anybody does. one of these children shall receive a special prize beyond anything you could ever imagine. that very night. in any street. for my birthday. . it‟s your birthday next week. Charlie. Charlie. in any country in the world. I. Narrator Indeed. . Willy Wonka (voice) Dear people of the world. in any shop. The kids who‟re going to find the golden tickets are the ones who can afford to buy candy bars every day. . Mrs Bucket Well. Our Charlie gets only one a year. in any town. Mrs Bucket Sleep well. Grandpa George Balderdash. Grandma Josephine . In addition. Newscaster Five golden tickets have been hidden under the ordinary wrapping paper of five ordinary Wonka bars.All Night. These five candy bars may be anywhere. Grandpa Joe Wouldn‟t it be something. the impossible had already been set in motion. He doesn‟t have a chance. Willy Wonka. but I only get one bar a year. to open a bar of candy and find a golden ticket inside? Charlie I know. .

Grandpa George Told you it‟d be a porker. . So I look and. . fat. or peanut butter. . the kid who finds the first ticket will be fat. Zehr gut. or nougat. . . . Press Woman This way. He eats so many candy bars a day that it was not possible for him not to find one. Grandpa George Mark my words. Charlie. . .Everyone has a chance. Voice on Television . how did you celebrate?

I found her a ticket. Charlie I don‟t think that was really fair. it was terrible. . ladies. Oh. Veruca Salt. Veruca Where‟s my golden ticket? I want my golden ticket! Mr Salt Well. Grandpa George She‟s even worse than the fat boy. Mr Salt Soon as my little Veruca told me she had to have one of these golden tickets. I started buying up all the Wonka bars I could lay my hands on. I just hated to see my little girl feeling unhappy like that. size and hue. My little Veruca got more and more upset each day. . Thousands of them. Can you spell that for us.Charlie Only four golden tickets left. And finally.” Three days went by and we had no luck.of every shape. things will get really crazy. please? Veruca V-E-R-U-C-A. Grandpa Joe Now that they‟ve found one. . “Morning. From now on you can stop shelling peanuts and start shelling the wrappers off these chocolate bars instead. Hundreds of thousands. So I say to my workers. I vowed I would keep up the search until I could give her what she wanted. you see. I‟m in the nut business. Veruca Daddy. She didn‟t find the ticket herself. I want another pony. gentlemen. Press Man Veruca. Voice on Television .

Grandpa Joe Ah. you‟ll still have the candy. if you don‟t get the. Mr Bucket Charlie. Not your birthday present. Mrs Bucket Here you are. well. Grandpa George Like hell.

Charlie We‟ll share it. Mr Bucket Pop. And no good ever comes from spoiling a child like that. Mrs Bucket Now. Charlie Maybe I should wait till morning.

Violet I‟m a gum chewer. and I‟ll do what I want with it. but when I heard about these ticket things I laid off the gum. Grandma Josephine Bless you. Mr Bucket Thank you.

So it says that one kid‟s gonna get this special prize. . Mike Die! Die! Die! Mr Teavee Doesn‟t seem like they stay kids very long. That kid. Mrs Beauregarde Tell them why. what with all the technology. A retard could figure it out. this is just in. The fourth golden ticket has been found by a boy called Mike Teavee. kids these days. Mike All you had to do was track the manufacturing dates. . Violet (on TV) Because I‟m a winner. Violet. I don‟t care who those other four are.

Charlie Like summer vacation? Mr Bucket Sure. who will be the winner of the last gold. Mr Bucket We were barely making ends meet as it was. Grandpa George Well. it wasn‟t like a vacation at all. . which led to a rise in toothpaste sales. Press Man And how did it taste? Mike I don‟t know. The upswing in candy sales had led to a rise in cavities. Charlie Dad? Mr Bucket Yes. Man on TV That question is. the toothpaste factory thought they‟d give me a bit of time off.

Those pipes… suck up the chocolate. Even I‟m edible. „enjoy‟. yeah. and carry it away. And you can take that to the bank. is hot. my dear children. Willy Wonka What? Oh.Mike Then why is the door so small? Willy Wonka That‟s to keep all the great big chocolaty flavour inside. Yeah. Charlie It‟s beautiful. Just keep very calm. Mr Teavee Son. And do you like my meadow? Try some of my grass. in fact frowned upon in most societies. melted chocolate of the finest quality. Thousands of gallons an hour. Every drop of the river. Go on. all over the factory.

Willy Wonka What? Mr Teavee Mr Wonka. Mr Teavee There‟s more than two. Mrs Beauregarde There‟s two of them. Over there. I teach high-school geography. Mr Salt Oompa-Loompas? Willy Wonka Imported. They‟re Oompa-Loompas. by the waterfall. Mrs Gloop Where do they come from? Charlie Who are they? Mike Are they real people? Willy Wonka Of course they‟re real people. What is it? It‟s a little person. direct from Loompaland. and I‟m here to tell you… . Mr Teavee There‟s no such place. look over there.Veruca Daddy.

But the food they longed for the most was the cocoa bean. „Come live in my factory. oh. the bark of the bong-bong tree. so I told the chief… (Uses sign language to say. my child. I found the Oompa-Loompas. All of them beastly. Mrs Gloop Call the fire brigade! Mrs Beauregarde It‟s a wonder how that pipe is big enough. You can have all the cocoa beans you want! I will even pay your wages in cocoa beans if you wish!‟) They are such wonderful workers. I feel I must warn you. Mrs Gloop Augustus. All they‟d ever think about was cocoa beans. but not quite so beastly as the caterpillars. they are rather mischievous. I went to Loompaland looking for exotic new flavours for candy. little boy. though. oh.Willy Wonka Well. The whole place is nothing but think jungles infested by the most dangerous beasts in the entire world. and. Hornswogglers and snozzwangers and those terrible. Always making jokes. Instead. what a terrible country it is. that is not a good thing you do! Willy Wonka Hey. He‟s slowing down. An Oompa-Loompa was lucky if he found three or four cocoa beans a year. how they craved them. Mrs Gloop He‟ll drown! He can‟t swim! Save him! Augustus! No! Augustus! Augustus! Watch out! Violet There he goes. . Red beetles. then you‟ll know all about it. The cocoa bean happens to be the thing from which chocolate is made. The Oompa-Loompas ate nothing but green caterpillars. Mike He‟s gonna stick. Charlie It isn‟t big enough. But. They lived in tree houses to escape from the fierce creatures who lived below. The Oompa-Loompas kept looking for other things to mash up with the caterpillars to make them taste better. wicked whangdoodles. My chocolate must be untouched by human hands. which tasted revolting.

Oompa-Loompas Sing Augustus Gloop. that all seemed rather rehearsed. Against a luscious bit if fudge? Willy Wonka Bravo! Well done! Aren‟t they delightful? Aren‟t they charming? Mr Salt I do say. So greedy. dear children. It is quite a special occasion of course. This greedy brute. Veruca What are they doing? Willy Wonka Why. Slowly wheels go round and round. Augustus Gloop will not be harmed. I believe they‟re going to treat us to a little song. so big and vile. They haven‟t had a fresh audience in many a moon. Augustus Gloop. greedy nincompoop. To sent him shooting up the pipe!‟ But don‟t. For who could hate or bear a grudge. poppycock. He will be altered quite a bit. Is loved by people everywhere. of course.Mr Teavee I think he has. foul and infantile. Augustus Gloop. The Oompa-Loompas. we must admit. And cogs begin to grind and pound. Augustus Gloop will not be harmed. this louse‟s ear. . be alarmed. Charlie Look. Mr Salt He‟s blocked the whole pipe. The great big. Mike Like they knew it was gonna happen. Willy Wonka Oh. Although. „Come on!‟ we cried „the time is ripe.

Mike No. They‟ll be selling him by the pound all over the world? Willy Wonka No. Violet Chewing gum. Mrs Gloop Then he will be made into strawberry flavoured. it just so happens to lead directly to the room where I make the most delicious kind of strawberry flavoured. I want you to take Mrs Gloop up to the fudge room. You. unless. Anything. it isn‟t. chocolate-coated fudge. . Anyone can do it. The taste would be terrible. I wouldn‟t allow it. little girl. okay? Help her find her son. Take a long stick and start poking around in the big chocolate-mixing barrel. chocolate-coated fudge. okay? Charlie Mr Wonka? Willy Wonka Huh? Charlie Why would Augustus‟ name already be in the Oompa-Loompa song.Mrs Gloop Where is my son? Where does that pipe go to? Willy Wonka That pipe. . No-one would buy it.? Willy Wonka Improvisation is a parlour trick. See? Exactly the same. Willy Wonka Chewing gum is really gross. Chewing gum I hate the most. Say something. chocolate coated Gloop? Ooh. . Can you imagine Augustusflavoured.

It‟ll do you good. churns it up. no other factory in the world. You look starved to death. Mrs Beauregarde You don‟t say. Violet What‟s so funny? Willy Wonka I think it‟s from all those doggone cocoa beans. Charlie Are the Oompa-Loompas really joking? Grandpa Joe Of course they‟re joking. . Because I can‟t understand a word you‟re saying. . on with the tour. by the way. That boy will be fine. Charlie It‟s great. Willy Wonka That‟s because it‟s mixed by waterfall. makes it light and frothy. aren‟t you? Violet . Try some of this. Now. The waterfall is most important. Veruca You already said that. Onward! Here.Willy Wonka Er. by the way. Willy Wonka You‟re all quite short. you really shouldn‟t mumble. Oh. Willy Wonka All aboard. did you guys know that chocolate contains a property that triggers the release of endorphins? Gives one the feeling of being in love. Mixes the chocolate. Hey.

Do I? Narrator In fact. Then we have all this. Terrance. Mike You were once. Look at your short little arms. Willy Wonka . let‟s see what the damage is this year. Wilbur Wonka. Ought to be called „cavities on a stick‟. chocolate. . wouldn‟t they? Lollipops. . I was never as short as you. And who‟s that under the sheet? Little Willy Wonka. do I. You could never reach. Willy Wonka Well. Willy Wonka hadn‟t thought about his childhood for years. All this. Narrator Willy Wonka was the son of the city‟s most famous dentist.Well. You know. yeah. Know why? Because I distinctly remember putting a hat on top of my head. Charlie Do you even remember what it was like being a kid? Willy Wonka Oh. Wilbur Wonka Now. . . I was reading in a very important medical journal that some children are allergic to chocolate. Willy Wonka Was not. . Children Trick or treat! Trick or treat! Trick or treat! Woman Who do we have here? Ruthie. Veronica. . that‟s no excuse. They‟d get stuck in your braces. Makes their noses itch. We‟re children. just last week. boy. shall we? Caramels.

There‟s no knowing where they‟re going. Stop the boat. . Wilbur Wonka Really? But why take a chance? Charlie Mr Wonka? Mr Wonka? We‟re headed for a tunnel. Willy Wonka For your information. We‟re passing some very important rooms here. Switch on the lights! People. whipped cream isn‟t whipped cream at all unless it‟s been whipped with whips. . Mrs Beauregarde What do you use hair cream for? Willy Wonka To lock in moisture. Willy Wonka Oh. I could try a piece. Veruca That doesn‟t make sense. Full speed ahead. . everyone. scoot. Okay?

Look. I‟ve just been informed that the incinerator‟s broken. Well.every need? Who turned her into such a brat? Who are the culprits? Who did that? The guilty ones.

son. One day it occurred to me. and he comes out looking this tall? Same basic principle. if television can break up a photograph into millions and millions of tiny little pieces and send it whizzing through the air. the amount of power it would take to convert energy in matter would be like nine atomic bombs. This light could burn your eyeballs right out of your skulls. Bring in the chocolate! It‟s gotta be real big. We‟re closing for the night. Duh! Second. I shall now send a bar of chocolate from one end of the room. all ready to be eaten? Oprah Winfrey (TV) I‟m not gonna touch it. send a real bar of chocolate through the television. Guard Sorry. Okey-dokey. by television. . Mike I wanna pick a room. Charlie It‟s gone! Willie Wonka . . to the other. do we? This is the testing room for my very latest and greatest invention: Television Chocolate. now.Wilbur Wonka Go ahead. You don‟t understand anything about science. Mr Teavee Sounds impossible. „cos you know how on TV you can film a regular-size man. And we certainly don‟t want that. . then reassemble it on the other end. Hey. First off. . Willie Wonka Mumbler! Seriously. Mike It is impossible. Why can‟t I do the same thing with chocolate? Why can‟t I. . Here. Willie Wonka Go ahead. Put these on quick. and don‟t take them off whatever you do. I‟m not going in that direction. But I won‟t be here when you come back. there‟s a difference between waves and particles. . I cannot understand a single word you‟re saying.

Now. like.” And you simply reach out. breakfast cereal? Willie Wonka Do you have any idea what breakfast cereal‟s made of? It‟s those little curly wooden shavings you find in pencil sharpeners.

Come on! Watch the screen. “Wonka‟s chocolates are the best in the world. Willie Wonka So imagine. Go on. Come on. It‟ll be delicious. You take it. that bar of chocolate is now rushing through the air above our heads in a million tiny little pieces. Just reach out and grab it. ah. and a voice will say. Take it. Go on. Charlie But could you send it by television if you wanted to? . It‟s just gotten a little smaller on the journey. Willie Wonka Eat it. you‟re sitting at home watching television and suddenly a commercial will flash onto the screen. Willie Wonka Scaredy-cat. that‟s all. Charlie It‟s great. It‟s the same bar.Told you. If you don‟t believe us. Mike It‟s just a picture on a screen. Here it comes.

Mike. which one would it be? Mr Teavee What kind of a question is that? . sometimes only half the little pieces find their way through. he doesn‟t. Willie Wonka Let‟s go check the television. why would I want to send a person? They don‟t taste very good at all. little boy. Willie Wonka Hay. Mr Teavee Calm down. see what we get. He has no idea. I think Mr Wonka knows what he‟s talking about. If you had to choose only one half of your son.Willie Wonka Of course I could. It‟s the most important invention in the history of the world. But I‟m not. Mike Don‟t you realise what you‟ve invented? It‟s a teleporter. Don‟t push my button. but he‟s an idiot. Mr Teavee What do you mean? Willie Wonka Well. I sure hope no part of him gets left behind. And all you think about is chocolate. Mike No. Mike What about people? Willie Wonka Well. You think he‟s a genius. Mr Teavee He‟s gone.

He can no longer understand. Try every channel. Regarding little Mike Teavee. Mr Teavee Unharmed? What are you talking about? Mike Just put me back in the other way. It keeps imagination dead.
