The clip The Factory's Mystery from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) with Freddie Highmore, Helena Bonham Carter
But it didn't close forever. It's open right now.
Yes, well, sometimes when grownups say "forever," they mean "a very long time. "
Such as, "I feel like I've eaten nothing but cabbage soup forever. "
The factory did close, Charlie.
And it seemed like it was going to be closed forever.
Then one day we saw smoke rising from the chimneys.
The factory was back in business.
Did you get your job back?
No one did.
But there must be people working there.
Think about it, Charlie. Have you ever seen a single person...
...going into that factory or coming out of it?
No. The gates are always closed.
But then, who's running the machines?
Nobody knows, Charlie.
It certainly is a mystery.
Hasn't someone asked Mr. Wonka?
Nobody sees him anymore. He never comes out.
The only thing that comes out of that place is the candy...
...already packed and addressed.
I'd give anything in the world just to go in one more time...
...and see what's become of that amazing factory.
Well, you won't, because you can't. No one can.
It's a mystery, and it will always be a mystery.
That little factory of yours, Charlie, is as close as any of us is ever going to get.
