  • QUOTES (15)

    • Dormouse: I have an important announcement. A new tea has just come on the market! You ever get that guilty feeling, huh? Maybe abandoned the wife and kids and left them without a crumb to split between them? Or maybe you killed someone: relative or a neighbor…and it's left that niggling feeling in the pit of your stomach? That's growing little by little into a dull, throbbing pain gnawing away at you, undermining your confidence and making you feel sick and worthless…and fearful? Well, fear no longer! Because Clear Conscience has finally arrived!

    • Alice: What is the Stone of Wonderland?
      Hatter: It's a big deal. It was mined by the ancient knights to power the Looking Glass, the door that connects our world to yours.
      Alice: Knights?
      Hatter: They were wiped out a long time ago by the Queen. She took the Looking Glass and, of course, the Stone. How did Jack get hold of it?

    • Duck: How does the little crocodile improve his shining tail?
      Hatter: He pours water of the Nile on every golden scale.

    • Alice: I have a little money. But I understand you don't use that here.
      Hatter: Pieces of paper? Pointless.
      Alice: Then why would you help me?
      Hatter: Do I need a reason to help a pretty girl in a very wet dress?

    • Jack: So, tonight.
      Alice: Ten o'clock. My mother is so looking forward to it.
      Jack: Good for your mum. I am too. What have you told her about me?
      Alice: Just that your leg kicks need work.
      Jack: That's true.

    • Ratty: She's Alice! Tell him who you are.
      Hatter: Wow. Really? Whoo. (laughs) Ratty here thinks you're Alice...of legend.
      Alice: Who?
      Hatter: The last, um, the last time a girl called Alice came here from your world, she brought down the whole house of cards. Oh, yeah. Made quite an impression. Although, it was 150 years ago. It can't be the same girl. Oysters don't even live that long.

    • Alice: Look, this place, where...what is it?
      Hatter: Oh! Wonderland.
      Alice: That's a story in a kid's book.
      Hatter: Does this look like a kid's story to you?
      Alice: No.
      Hatter: It's changed a lot since then.

    • Dodo: You know what rankles most about blood-sucking carpetbaggers like you, Hatter? Your gall. You think you can play both sides of the court and come away with two trophies. I haven't seen daylight for three years, and Owl here has forgotten what a vegetable tastes like.
      Owl: I remember kumquat. Is that a vegetable?
      Dodo: While we risk our lives trying to bring freedom to ungrateful leeches like you, you swan about living the good life.
      Hatter: Stop your crowing. You know I'm on your side.
      Dodo: I'm sure you say that to all your enemies.
      Hatter: I do what's necessary. I kiss what butts need kissing so your machine stays oiled.

    • Alice: Where are we?
      Hatter: The Great Library. There's 5,000 years of history hidden here: art, literature, law. Rescued when the Queen of Hearts seized power. She'd like nothing more than to see this burnt to nothin'.
      Alice: Who are those poor people?
      Hatter: Refugees. Those who don't want to be a part of the Queen's world of instant gratification. We give them shelter and try feed them the best we can, but it is dangerous. If the Queen found out, they wouldn't stand a chance.
      Alice: Why does she want to destroy all of this?
      Hatter: Wisdom is her biggest threat. She controls people with a quick fix.

    • Hatter: Pink nectar. Filled with the thrill of human excitement. Fifty oysters were drained of every last drop of hullabaloo so that you, Ratty, can taste what it feels like to win, just once. Warning, don't take it on an empty stomach and only one tiny little drop at a time, otherwise the experience might burst your shriveled up little heart. Got it?
      Ratty: Got it.
      Hatter: Good. Go.

    • Hatter: And you wanna to put your faith in him?
      Alice: Yes, he might be nuts, and a hundred and fifty years old, and dressed like a car crash, but he's a survivor.
      Charlie: And I'm not deaf. Just Alice, I will be honored to escort you, your goods, and …vassal, to my sacred kingdom.
      Hatter: Did he just call me a vassal?

    • Hatter: You know why they call me Hatter?
      Alice: Because you wear a hat?
      Hatter: No, because I'm always there when they pass the hat. So to speak. Philanthropy, generosity, I mean you can call it what you will. It's who I am. And right now, looking at you there, there's nothing I want more than to help you find…
      Alice: Jack.
      Hatter: Jack, and return you both to your charming world of children's stories.
      Alice: I don't believe you.
      Hatter: I know what you're thinking. If I'm the frying pan, then that out there is the fire. I'll be square with ya, I know people who like to help your kind. And if every once and a while I scratch their back…
      Alice: They'll scratch yours.
      Hatter: Precisely. Lots of scratching.

    • Hatter: I acted impetuously.
      Alice: No, selfishly. You acted selfishly.
      Hatter: Whatever word you wanna use. Let me make it up to you.

    • Alice: Look, I have a bad record with liking guys...
      Hatter: There's a shock.

    • Hatter: He's mad as a box of frogs.
