Victor Van Dort Quotes:
Victor Van Dort: With this hand I will lift your sorrows. Your cup will never be empty, for I will be your wine. With this candle, I will light your way into darkness. With this ring, I ask you to be mine.
Victor Van Dort: I've got a... I've got a dwarf, and I'm not afraid to use him!
Victor Van Dort: I want some questions! Now!
General Bonesapart: Answers... I think you mean answers.
Victor Van Dort: Thank you, yes, answers. I need answers.
The Corpse Bride: We need to go up. Upstairs? To visit the land of the living.
Elder Gutknecht: Land of the living? Oh, my dear.
The Corpse Bride: Please, Elder Gutknecht.
Elder Gutknecht: Now, why go up there when people are dying to get down here?
Victor Van Dort: Sir, I beg you to help. It means so much to me... us.
Elder Gutknecht: I don't know. It's just not natural.
The Corpse Bride: Please, Elder Gutknecht. Surely there must be something you can do.
Elder Gutknecht: Let me see what I can do.
Victor Van Dort: [trying to practice his vows] With this hand, I will cup your...
[unconsciously holds hands before his chest in a suggestive manner, and is then horrified]
Victor Van Dort: Oh goodness, no!
The Corpse Bride: [about Victor's dead dog, Scraps] What a cutie.
Victor Van Dort: You should have seen him with fur.
Victor Van Dort: Wait. I made a promise.
The Corpse Bride: You kept your promise. You set me free. Now I can do the same for you.
Victor Van Dort: We're moving this wedding party upstairs.
Dead Woman: Upstairs? I didn't know we had an upstairs.
Skeleton boy: Sounds creepy!
Skeleton Girl: Let's go!
The Corpse Bride: [angrily, grabbing Victor] Hopscotch!
Victor Van Dort: No, no! Victoria!
Victor Van Dort: But I don't even know your name.
Maggot: [from inside the Corpse Bride's head] Well, that's a great way to start a marriage.
The Corpse Bride: [grasps head and hisses] Sshh! Shut up!
[smiles at Victor]
The Corpse Bride: It's Emily.
The Corpse Bride: [after her hand escapes her arm and dances up Victor's arm] Pardon my enthusiasm.
Victor Van Dort: [snapping her hand into place] I like your enthusiasm.
William Van Dort: You've certainly hooked a winner this time, Victor.
Nell Van Dort: Now, all you have to do is reel her in.
Victor Van Dort: I'm already reeling, Mother. Shouldn't Victoria Everglot be marrying a lord or something?
Nell Van Dort: Oh, nonsense. We're every bit of good as the Everglots. I always knew I deserved better than a fish merchant's life.
Victor Van Dort: But I've never even spoken to her.
Nell Van Dort: Well, at least we have that in our favor.
Nell Van Dort: Mayhew! Silence that blasted coughing!
Victor Van Dort: Do forgive me.
Victoria Everglot: You play beautifully.
Victor Van Dort: I-I-I do apologise, Miss Everglot. How rude of me to... Well... Excuse me.
Victoria Everglot: Mother won't let me near the piano. Music is improper for a young lady. "Too passionate", she says.
Victor Van Dort: If I may ask, Miss Everglot... where is your chaperone?
Victoria Everglot: Perhaps, in... in view of the circumstances... you could call me Victoria.
Victor Van Dort: Yes, of course. Well... Victoria...
Victoria Everglot: Yes, Victor...
Victoria Everglot: Since I was a child, I've dreamt of my wedding day. I always hoped to find someone I was deeply in love with. Someone to spend the rest of my life with. Silly, isn't it?
Victor Van Dort: Yes, silly. No. No, not at all, no.
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?
The Corpse Bride: Well, that's kind of a long story.
Bonejangles: What a story it is. A tragic tale of romance, passion and murder most foul.
The Corpse Bride: [meeting Victoria] Darling, I just wanted to meet... Darling, who's this?
Victoria Everglot: Who is she?
The Corpse Bride: I'm his wife.
Victoria Everglot: Victor?
Victor Van Dort: Victoria, wait. You don't understand. She's dead. Look!
Victor Van Dort: Tomorrow, Victoria, we are to be...
[struggles to say "married"]
Victor Van Dort: Mmmm... mmmm... mmmm...
Victoria Everglot: [small giggle] ... married.
Victor Van Dort: Yes, married.
The Corpse Bride: Darling... where are you going?
Victor Van Dort: *Home*!
Pastor Galswells: Master Van Dort, from the beginning. Again. "With this hand I will lift your sorrows. Your cup will never empty, for I will be your wine. With this candle, I will light your way in darkness. With this ring, I ask you to be mine". Let's try it again.
Victor Van Dort: Yes, yes, Sir.
Victor Van Dort: Ah, Mrs. Everglot. You look ravishing this evening. What's that, Mr. Everglot? Call you "dad"? If you insist, sir.
Victor Van Dort: Please, there's been a mistake. I'm not dead.
Victor Van Dort: Mother never approved of Scraps jumping up like this. But then again, she never approved of anything.
The Corpse Bride: Scraps... Elder Gutknecht... Are you there? Hello? Is anyone home? Hello? There you are!
Elder Gutknecht: Oh, my dear. There you are.
The Corpse Bride: I've brought my husband, Victor.
Elder Gutknecht: What's that? Husband?
Victor Van Dort: Pleasure to meet you, sir.
Elder Gutknecht: Where did I put that book? I left it here somewhere. There's the one. I have it. A Ukranian haunting spell. Just the thing for these quick trips.
The Corpse Bride: So glad you thought of this.
Victor Van Dort: Me too.
Elder Gutknecht: Now, then... Where were we?
The Corpse Bride: The Ukranian haunting spell
Elder Gutknecht: Ahh... Here we have it. Ready?
Victor Van Dort: I want very much to.
Pastor Galswells: Pay attention! Have you even remembered to bring the ring?
Victor Van Dort: The ring. Yes, of course.
[Victor drops the ring]
Pastor Galswells: Dropping the ring. This boy doesn't want to get married.
Maudeline Everglot: How disgraceful!
Victor Van Dort: Excuse me. Got it!
Victor Van Dort: Emily.
The Corpse Bride: Oh, I almost forgot. I have something for you. It's a wedding present.
Victor Van Dort: [opens the box and finds a bone] Haah. Thank you.
[Victor's present turns out to be his dead dog Scraps, who is now a dog skeleton]
Victor Van Dort: Scraps? Scraps. It's my dog, Scraps. Oh, Scraps. What a good boy?
The Corpse Bride: I knew you'd be happy to see him.
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
Victor Van Dort: [to himself] I did!
[starts hitting his head on the bar]
Victor Van Dort: Wake up wake up WAKE UP.
The Corpse Bride: It's my eye, isn't it?
[pops loose eye into skull]
Victor Van Dort: No! Your eye is uh, lovely.
