"What is this, Wonka, some kind of funhouse?" "Why, having fun?"
When Wonka leads everyone to the Chocolate room.
Wonka: You can't get out backwards. You gotta go forwards to go back. Trust me. Charlie: Hey, the room is getting smaller! Mrs. Teevee: No it's not, he's getting bigger! Veruca's dad: He's at it again. Violet: Where's the chocolate? Grandpa Joe: I doubt there is any chocolate. Veruca's dad: I doubt any of us are gonna get out of here alive.
"I've just decided to switch our Friday schedule to Monday, which means that the test we take each Friday on what we've learned during the week will now take place on Monday before we've learned it. But since today is Tuesday, it doesn't matter in the slightest."
Pretty much everything the teacher says, really. Ahem:
Teacher: Well, I can't figure out just two! So let's pretend you opened 200! Now, if you opened 200 Wonka bars, apart from being dreadfully sick, you would have used up 20% of the 1000 Wonka bars, which is 15% half over again, 10%...

Veruca: Hey, daddy, I want an Oompa Loompa. I want an Oompa Loompa right away!
Veruca's Dad: Alright, sweetheart. We'll buy one as soon as we get home, okay?
Veruca: No, I want an Oompa Loompa now!
Violet: Can it, you nit!
Veruca: *Silent, then grumpily takes another bite out of her candy*
This exchange between Charlie and Grandpa Joe:
Charlie: (about Veruca) Why doesn't she listen to Mr. Wonka, Grandpa?
Grandpa Joe: Because, Charlie, she's a nitwit.'''
In the audio commentary, Paris Themmen (Mike Teevee) goes to some effort to draw attention to this Brick Joke that no one ever seems to notice (Violet calls Veruca a nit and a twit before Joe calls her a nitwit), only to completely miss the punchline because people were talking about Denise's (Violet's) blueberry costume, instead.
Grandpa Joe's thoughts on Veruca during the arrival of the boat.
