-->'''Scientist:''' ''(operating the computer in frustration)'' I will tell the computer ''exactly'' what it can do with a lifetime supply of chocolate!



* AllOrNothing: Although Charlie wins Mr. Wonka's contest by default (since the other children all "drop out"), Mr. Wonka disqualifies him on a technicality, delivering the news rather bluntly and cruelly. [[spoiler: However, he subverts it a moment later by revealing that it is one last Secret Test Of Character, which Charlie passes.]] The other children in this film leave with nothing other than the AmusingInjuries they'd brought upon themselves. (This is different than the book. Then again, the book didn't have that contract. nor in the 2005 movie)

* {{Homage}}: Many seemingly profound things that Mr. Wonka says in the movie are actually paraphrased from the works of classic writers. For instance, when he says "Is it my soul that calls upon my name?" he is referencing the line from ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'', Act II, Scene 2, where Romeo quotes, "It is my soul that calls upon my name." His statement, "The suspense is terrible. I hope it'll last," after Augustus falls in the river is almost a direct quote from OscarWilde's ''Theatre/TheImportanceOfBeingEarnest''. His statement "Across the desert lies the promised land" paraphrases Literature/TheBible itself most likely (probably Exodus).
