    • Bone Boys: Die, die, we all pass away/But don't wear a frown 'cause it's really okay/And you might try and hide/And you might try and pray/But we all end up the remains of the day/Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
    • Bone Boys: Die, die, we all pass away/But don't wear a frown 'cause it's really okay/And you might try and hide/And you might try and pray/But we all end up the remains of the day/Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
    • Bonejangles: Well, our girl was a beauty known for miles around/When a mysterious stranger came into town./He was plenty good-lookin', but down on his cash./And our poor little baby, she fell hard and fast/When her daddy said no, she just couldn't cope/So our lovers came up with a plan to elope!
    • Bone Boys: Die, die, we all pass away/But don't wear a frown 'cause it's really okay/And you might try and hide/And you might try and pray/But we all end up the remains of the day/Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
    • [after instrumental]
    • Bonejangles: That's right. Okay. Oh, yeah. Come on, boys, pick it up. Yeah. Like it. Okay, Chancy, take it. Yeah. Yeah! That's nice. Yeah. So they conjured up a plan to meet late at night./They told not a soul, kept the whole thing tight./Now her mother's wedding dress fit like a glove./You don't need much when you're really in love./Except for a few things, or so I'm told,/Like the family jewls and a sachel of gold./Then next to the graveyard by the old oak tree,/On a dark foggy night at a quarter to three,/She was ready to go, but where was he?
    • Short Dead Cook: And then?
    • Bonejangles: She waited.
    • Mrs. PlumShort Dead Cook: And then?

    • Maudeline Everglot: It's a terrible day for a wedding.

    • Maudeline Everglot: That has led to this ominous wedding.
    • Finnis Everglot: How could our family have come to this?
    • Finnis EverglotMaudeline Everglot: To marry off our daughter to the nouveau riches?

    • Nell Van Dort: I always knew I deserved better than a fish merchant's life.
    • [disrupting the wedding]
    • Barkis Bittern: Oh, how touching. I always cry at weddings. Finally, our two young lovers are together at last. Surely now they can live happily ever after? But you forget...
    • [snatches Victoria]
    • Barkis Bittern: She's still my wife! And I'm not leaving here empty-handed!
    • [to the Everglotts and Van Dorts]
    • Barkis Bittern: Do call for me if you need my assistance...
    • [glances at Victoria]
    • Barkis Bittern: in *any way*.
    • [looking at a portrait of Victoria]
    • Barkis Bittern: Oh, my dear. Don't look at me that way. You have only to suffer this union untill death do us part. And that will come sooner than you think...
    • [holding a squirming Victoria]
    • Pastor Galswells: She is speaking in tongues, of unholy alliances! Her mind has come undone, I fear!
    • Victoria Everglot: It's not true! Let me go! Let me go!
    • The Corpse Bride: I've spent so long in the darkness, I'd almost forgotten how beautiful the moonlight is.

    • Mayhew: Begging your pardon, ma'am.
    • William Van Dort: Come on, dear.
    • Nell Van Dort: It's not me. It's my dress that's caught. Where is Victor? We might be late.
    • 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.
    • [Mayhew coughs]
    • Nell Van Dort: Mayhew! Silence that blasted coughing!
    • Maudeline Everglot: Fish merchants!
    • [to Victor]
    • Nell Van Dort: Look at the way your standing, You look like you've got rickets or something.
    • [to Finnis]
    • Maudeline Everglot: Smile, darling, smile.
    • [barely manages an extremely forced smile]

    • 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.
    • [knocks over a vase]
    • Victor Van Dort: Oh, oh, dear. I'm sorry.
    • 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.
    • [to Victor]
    • Pastor Galswells: Pay attention! Have you even remembered to bring the ring?
    • Pastor Galswells: Enough! This wedding cannot take place until he is properly prepared! Young man, learn your vows!
    • Nell Van Dort: Oh, I'm sure he'll be back shortly. He's terrified of the dark. In fact, when he was a boy, he used to wet his combinations, regularly, didn't he, William?
    • Paul The Head Waiter: Coming through, coming through. My name is Paul, the head waiter. I will be creating your wedding feast.
    • [popping out the Corpse Bride's eye]

    • [pushing the maggot back into her eye]
    • The Corpse Bride: Maggots.
    • [laughs]
    • 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.
    • 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?
    • [meeting Victoria]

    • The Corpse Bride: And I thought... I thought this was all going so well.
    • Maudeline Everglot: Finis, come to bed at once.
    • Victoria Everglot: Can the living marry the dead?
    • Pastor Galswells: What on Earth are you speaking about?
    • Victoria Everglot: Please, it's Victor. He's married to a corpse. He has a corpse bride. There must be some way to undo what's been done.
    • Pastor Galswells: I believe I know the thing to do. Come with me.
    • Maudeline Everglot: Take her to her room!
    • Victoria Everglot: No, I'm telling the truth. Victor needs my help.
    • Nell Van Dort: Oh, it's almost dawn! Where could he be?
    • Town Crier: Victor Van Dort elopes with corpse! Heartbroken bride to wed wealthy newcomer!
    • Nell Van Dort: Wealthy newcomer? It cannot be.
    • William Van Dort: Did he say corpse?
    • Nell Van Dort: Oh, don't be ridiculous. What corpse would marry our Victor?
    • [Mayhew coughs]
    • Nell Van Dort: Oh, Mayhew! Silence that blasted coughing! Mayhew, are you trying to kill us? I think he's trying to kill us!
    • Maudeline Everglot: Oh, Finis. Who invited these people? They must be from your side of the family.
    • Victoria Everglot: Did things not go according to your plan, Lord Barkis? Well, perhaps in disappointment, we are perfectly matched.
    • 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 Van Dort: Who's my good boy. Sit! Sit, Scraps. Good boy, Scraps. Roll over, roll over.
    • Maudeline Everglot: Victoria, come away from the window.
    • Maudeline Everglot: Ah, Lord Barkin. I trust the room is to your liking.
    • Barkis Bittern: Thank you. You are a most gracious hostess, which is what pains me to be the bearer of such bad news.
    • [about Victor]
    • Nell Van Dort: Mystery woman? He doesn't even know any women.
    • Barkis Bittern: So you thought.

    • The Corpse Bride: He just walked off without saying a word. Are all men like this?
    • Mrs. Plum: Well, I'm afraid none of them are very bright. They got something stuck in their heads, and you can't do a thing with them.
