    Victoria Everglot: [knocks over a vase]

    Victor Van Dort: Oh, oh, dear. I'm sorry.

  • Victor Van Dort: What's going on here? Where am I? Who are you?

    Pastor Galswells: Pay attention! Have you even remembered to bring the ring?

    Victor Van Dort: Who's my good boy. Sit! Sit, Scraps. Good boy, Scraps. Roll over, roll over.

  • The Corpse Bride: [to Victor] In the woods, you said your vows so perfectly

  • The Corpse Bride: It's my eye, isn't it?
