Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Rules and Order Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Chapter.Paragraph)

Quote #7

"But don't go in! Whatever you do, don't go into THE NUT ROOM! If you go in, you'll disturb the squirrels!" (24.2)

In this case, Mr. Wonka is more urgent than polite, so we know that whatever happens when one disturbs the squirrels can't be good.

Quote #8

"Just a minute now! Listen to me! I want everybody to be very careful in this room. There is dangerous stuff around in here and you must not tamper with it." (25.59)

We've noticed – and maybe you have, too – that Mr. Wonka seems to be growing more impatient and frustrated each time he has to tell the tour not to touch things in his factory. After everything that's happened so far, we can understand why.

Quote #9

Mr. Wonka handed each of them a pair of dark glasses and said, "Put these on quick! And don't take them off in here whatever you do! This light could blind you!" (26.1)

Yikes. This sounds just plain dangerous. It's interesting that a place so wonderful has so many of its own kinds of hazards.
