Mr. and Mrs. Beauregarde Timeline and Summary

  • When we're introduced to Violet Beauregarde, we also briefly meet her mother, who is shushed by Violet.
  • During the factory tour, the Beauregardes don't do much until Violet decides she wants to chew the gum meal.
  • Mrs. Beauregarde weakly warns her daughter not to do anything silly.
  • After Violet chews the gum anyway, Mr. Beauregarde cheers her on.
  • When Violet starts to turn blue and inflate, the Beauregardes freak out.
  • Then they follow their daughter as the Oompa-Loompas roll her off to the Juicing Room, where they hope she'll be cured.
