Quotes from Jack Albertson's Characters

    1. Willy Wonka: Wrong sir, wrong! Under section 37B of the contract signed by him. It states quite clearly that all offers shall become null and void if, and you can read it for yourself in this photostatic copy. I the undersigned shall forfeit all rights privileges and licenses herein and herein contained et cetera et cetera... huhh fax mentis incendium gloria culpum et cetera et cetera... huhh memo bis punitor delicatum! It's all there black and white clear as crystal! You stole fizzylifting drinks! You bumped into the ceiling which now has to be washed and sterilized so you get nothing! You lose! Good day sir!
    2. Grandpa Joe: You're a crook. You're a cheat and a swindler. That's what you are! How can you do a thing like this?! Build up a little boy's hope and then smash all his dreams to pieces! You're an inhuman MONSTER!
