Gene Wilder: Mock Turtle



  • [the Mock Turtle begins his tale] 

    Mock Turtle : Once...

    [starts moaning and wringing his hands] 

    Mock Turtle : I was once a real turtle...

    [breaks down completely] 

    Alice : [rises to leave]  Thank you for that very interesting story...

    Mock Turtle : I haven't started yet!

    The Gryphon : [half-pleading]  Stay! You may learn something!

  • Mock Turtle : When Griff and I were little, we went to school in the same sea. And the master was an old turtle; we used to call him "tortoise."

    Alice : Why would you call him tortoise if he wasn't one?

    Mock Turtle : We called him "tortoise" because he "taught us."

    The Gryphon : You ought to be ashamed of yourself! Asking a simple question like that.

  • The Gryphon : Mock, tell this young girl about yourself!

    Mock Turtle : You've come to the right person. Sit down, both of you...

    The Gryphon : No, thanks, I've heard it before...

    Mock Turtle : Sit down! It's the least you can do!
