Caractacus Pott: What's wrong?
Truly Scrumptious: Now you'll have to marry me!

Lord Scrumptious: Time's up. Had your chance. Muffed it. Good morning.

Child Catcher: There are children here somewhere. I can smell them.

Truly Scrumptious: Is that all you do Mr. Potts, invent things?

Jeremy: Please, Mr. Coggins! You can't sell our lovely car to that nasty man!

Continuity mistake: Truly crashes into the pond three times: first when the kids are playing in the road and she takes them home, second on the day of the picnic when she says she has nothing else to do and will go on the picnic too, and third at the end of the film when Potts finds out he is rich. In the second of these three, when Mr. Potts carries Truly from her car in the pond, the end of the ribbons on the back of her dress gets soaked in mud, but when you see her again at the beach there is no sign of the dirt.

Trivia: Julie Andrews was the actress chosen to play the part of Truly Scrumptious. However, as revealed in "Julie Andrews: An Intimate Biography", Ms. Andrews had grown tired of being typecast in playing the same type of roles in Sound of Music and Mary Poppins. She turned down the part.
