Mouse Luke pours the formula into the soup that all the witches (including the grand high witch) eat, they all turn into mice and are killed by the hotel employees. Luke goes back to the grand high witch's room and puts a mail tag on a trunk full of the money that was supposed to be used to buy the sweet shops to turn children into mice. The trunk is sent to his grandmother's house. In the middle of the night, Miss Irvine comes and turns him back into a human, happy that she is now free from the grand high witch.
Revealing mistake: In the hotel meeting scene, the Grand High Witch tells the witches they can take their wigs off. When we see the newly bald witches, it is particularly obvious that only the foreground witches are ladies with bald caps - the rest of the witches are bald men. (00:30:10 - 00:31:00)
Grand High Witch: This stinking little carbuncle has had five hundred doses! Aha, we are having Instantaneous action.
Trivia: In the ending for the book, the boy stays a mouse, as opposed to the movie, where he becomes human again. Roald Dahl hated the movie ending.
