Alice's Sister: Alice. Will you kindly pay attention to your history lesson?
Alice: I'm sorry, but how can one possibly pay attention to a book with no pictures in it?
Alice's Sister: My dear child, there are a great many good books in this world without pictures.
Alice: In this world, perhaps, but in my world, the books would be nothing but pictures.
Alice's Sister: Your world? Huh! What nonsense.
Alice: [getting inspiration] Nonsense?
Alice's Sister: Once more, from the beginning.
Alice: [to her cat] That's it, Dinah. If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrariwise, what it is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be it would. You see? [Dinah meows] In my world, you wouldn't say "meow." You'd say, "Yes, Miss Alice." [Dinah meows] Oh, but you would. You'd be just like people, Dinah. And all the other animals too.

Alice: Oh, Dinah. It's just a rabbit with a waistcoat-- and a watch!
Rabbit: Oh, my fur and whiskers! I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!
Alice: Now this is curious. What could a rabbit possibly be late for? [running after him] Please, sir!
Rabbit: I'm late, I'm late. For a very important date. No time to say hello. Goodbye. I'm late, I'm late, I'm late.

Alice: "Drink Me". Hm, better look first. For if one drinks much from a bottle marked "Poison", it's almost certain to disagree with one sooner or later.
Doorknobː Beg your pardon?
Aliceː I was just giving myself some good advice. But... [drinks from the "Drink Me" bottle] Mmm... tastes like, uh, cherry tart. [shrinks, takes another sip] Custard. [shrinks down again, takes another drink] Pineapple. [shrinks down so much, bottle is too big] Roast turkey - [finally aware of the potion's effect] Goodness!  What did I do?!
Doorknob: You almost went out like a candle!
Alice:  But look! I'm just the right size!
[She's about to open the door, but the Doorknob pulls away.]
Doorknob: No use. I forgot to tell you. I'm locked!
Alice: Oh no!
Doorknob: But of course, you've got the key, so-
Alice: What key?
Doorknob: Now, don't tell me you've left it up there?!
[A key magically appears on the table Alice can no longer reach.]
Alice: Oh dear!
