Spirited Away
Movie Quote Quiz

Zeniba: The protective seal on my gold charm is gone.
Chihiro: You mean that little black slug? I think I killed in when I stepped on it.
Zeniba: HA HA HA! My sister put that there so she could control Haku... and you killed it! HA HA HA! But it's strange... only love can remove a seal.

Chihiro: I finally get a bouquet and it's a goodbye present. That's depressing.

Chihiro: Where is Haku... You better get here before I forget what my parents look like. I hope Dad hasn't gotten too fat.

Chihiro: Guys, don't take that food! We're gonna get in trouble.
Chihiro's Father: Don't worry, you've got Daddy with you. He's got credit cards and cash.

Lin: What's going on here?
Kamaji: Something you wouldn't recognize. It's called love.

Zeniba: Now, try to remember as much as you can about your old life.
Chihiro: For some reason, I can remember Haku... from a long time ago... but I thought I never met him before.
Zeniba: Oh, that's a wonderful place to start! Once you meet someone, you never really forget them.

Zeniba: I'm sorry my sister turned you parents into pigs, but there's nothing I can do. Its just the way things are. You'll have to help your parents and Haku by yourself. Use what you remember about them.
Chihiro: What? Can't you please give me more help than that? It feels like I met Haku, but it was a long time ago.
Zeniba: That's a good start! Once you've met someone you never really forget them. It just takes a while for your memories to return.

Chihiro: I'm see-through.

Yubaba: Oh, my baby! Are you all right? Are you emotionally tramautized?

Chihiro: There must be some mistake! None of these pigs are my parents.

Zeniba: Once you do something, you never forget. Even if you can't remember.

Aogaeru: Welcome the rich man, he's hard for you to miss. His butt keeps getting bigger, so there's plenty there to kiss.

Chihiro: You don't remember your name?
Haku: No, but for some reason I remember yours.

Lin: Sen! I'm sorry I called you a dope before... I take it back.

Zeniba: Where did you learn how to spin, No-Face?

Door Knocker: Aren't you even going to knock? You're the most pathetic little girl I've ever seen.

Continuity mistake: After Chihiro pulls the rope to let the water pour onto the large stink spirit, she falls in the tub, and then it goes to a view of the water pouring on the spirit, however the rope isn't in the shot, yet should be visibly dangling down. (00:59:35)

Trivia: The idea of having the bath house workers clean the river spirit came from an experience Hayao Miyazaki had when he was younger, where he helped clean a polluted river and one of the items removed from it was a bicycle.

Question: Due to the Audi having a left side steering wheel, Chihiro's father being brown haired and overweight (rare in Japan), Chihiro having a whiny nature, her confusion of work responsibility, and her parents eating food with gluttonous abandon (all stereotypical American characteristics), could Chihiro have been the product of a Japanese-Anglo American mixed marriage? It would explain that the reason for her exposure to the spirit world is to broaden her Japanese heritage via work ethic, gratitude, maintaining calmness, understanding hierarchy, and belief in the existence of iconic yōkai.
