Hoggle: Y-you will?
Jareth: Prince of the Land of Stench!

Fourth Statue: Take heed, and go no further...
Fifth Statue: Beware, beware...
Sixth Statue: Soon it will be too late...

Didymus: And remember, fair maiden, should you need us...
Hoggle: Yes, should you need us, for any reason at all...
Sarah: I need you, Hoggle.
Hoggle: You do?
Sarah: [nods] I don't know why, but every now and again in my life - for no reason at all - I need you. All of you.
Hoggle: You do? Well... WHY DIDN'T YOU SAY SO?
[she spins around and sees them all in her room, including the goblins. She hugs them all, and a huge party begins]
Sarah: [after eating the peach] Hoggle, what've you done?
Hoggle: [leaves in fear] Oh, damn you, Jareth. And damn me, too.
Hoggle: This is an oubliette, labyrinth's full of 'em.
Sarah: Really. I didn't know that.
Hoggle: Oh don't act so smart. You don't even know what an oubliette is.
Sarah: Do you?
Hoggle: Yes. It's a place you put people... to forget about 'em!
Jareth: Yes, If I thought that for one second that you would betray me, I would be forced to suspend you, head first, in the Bog of Eternal Stench.
Hoggle: [falls to his knees] Oh no! Your Majesty, not the eternal stench!
Jareth: Oh, yes!
Hoggle: Them's my rightful property. It's not fair.
Sarah: No, it isn't. But that's the way it is.
Didymus: [finally entering the castle] Well, come on then!
Sarah: No! I have to face him alone.
Didymus: But why?
Sarah: Because that's the way it's done!
Didymus: Well, if that is the way it is done, then that is the way you must do it. But, should you need us...
Hoggle: Yes, should you need us...
Sarah: I'll call.
Hoggle: [sadly, after Sarah broke free from the crystal] Oh, she'll never forgive me. What have I done? I've lost my only friend. That's what I've done.
Hoggle: What did you have to go and do a thing like that for?
Sarah: Do what? You mean rescue you?
Hoggle: No! You kissed me!
Sarah: Ow! It bit me!
Hoggle: What'd you expect fairies to do?
Sarah: I thought they did nice things, like... like granting wishes.
Hoggle: Shows what *you* know, don't it?
Hoggle: You have to understand my position. I'm a coward. And Jareth scares me.
Sarah: What kind of a position is that?
Hoggle: No position! That's my point.
Sarah: [seeing a Goblin aiming his cannon at her] Whoa, Nellie, duck!
[the Goblin fires]
Hoggle: [laughs] Missed!
Hoggle: And you wouldn't be so brave if you'd ever smelled the Bog of Eternal Stench. It's, it's...
Sarah: Is that all it does, is smell?
Hoggle: Oh, believe me, that's enough! But the worst thing is, if you so much as set a foot in the Bog of Stench, you'll smell bad for the rest of your life. It'll never wash off.
Hoggle: Oh, no... Not the CLEANERS!
