- Loved the ending.
Willy Wonka: But Charlie, don't forget what happened to the man who suddenly got everything he ever wanted.
Charlie: What's that?
Willy Wonka: He lived happily ever after.
- The cast members had high praise for each other.
- At various points during the DVD Commentary, the now-grown kids sing Jack Albertson's praises.
- The young man who played Mike Teavee gave Gene Wilder all kinds of grief, but he is very dear to Wilder now.
- Wilder made it clear that despite the fury that Wonka displayed, he loved Peter Ostrum, and he still does.

Wonka: Hi, dad.
Wonka's father: All these years, and you haven't flossed.
Wonka: Not once.
- To clarify: Wonka's father Wilbur was a dentist who regarded candy of all kinds as a waste of time. On the walls of his surgery however, was every single newspaper clipping about his son since the day he left.

Are you a dummy?"
- The candy shop owner. He absolutely freaks out that Wonka's last Golden Ticket was found in, of all possible places, his corner shop. Then, when two strangers make money offers to Charlie, he gives them both a non-violent Shut UP, Hannibal.
