** "I still don't understand how you glued your hat on, Harry. I mean, I know you say you didn't, but obviously, you ''did''."

** To clarify, in-context it's ''not'' meant to be funny, because of the reason she even has a red hair ribbon in the first place: Matilda accidentally left the ribbon behind at the Trunchbull's house after "haunting" her; the Trunchbull is trying to figure out which student she should ''punish''. But, because of her delivery, the line becomes unintentionally hysterical.

** Also, this bit after Zinnia manages to get the hat off:
--> '''Harry:''' From now on, this family does exactly what I say [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment WHEN EXACTLY WHEN I SAY IT!]]

** That scene gets its own song in the musical. The music as he finishes the cake is the CrowningMoment of a [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome very good song.]]

* Also from the musical, before Bruce starts eating the cake:
--> '''Miss Honey:''' Headmistress, he'll be sick!
--> '''Miss Trunchbull:''' He should have thought of that before he made a ''pact'' with ''Satan'' and decided to '''steal my cake'''!

* From the musical, we have Agatha Trunchball's little... digression in the middle of 'The Smell of Rebellion'. Up till this point she's been singing about how she intends to weed out rebellious students from the school, and then suddenly she starts singing this. Full warning, it MakesJustasMuchSenseinContext.

--> Miss Trunchbull: Imagine a world with no children/ Close your eyes and just dream./ Imagine... come on, try it, the peace and the quiet/ a bubbling stream/ Now imagine a woods with a cottage,/ and inside that cottage we find/ a dwarf called Zeke, a carnival freak/ who can fold paper hats with his mind, and he says/ Don't let them steal your horses, no!/ Don't let them throw them away, no!/ If you find your way through, they'll be waiting for you/ singing... neigh! Neiiigh!

* At a cast reunion, the now-grown child actors [[http://www.buzzfeed.com/leonoraepstein/watch-matilda-cast-members-reenact-scenes-as-grown-ups re-enacted famous scenes from the film]], including the cake-eating and pigtail-toss scenes. It's as hysterical as it sounds.
