It's discouraging to make a mistake, but it's humiliating when you find out you're so unimportant that nobody noticed it.

Some journeys take us far from home. Some adventures lead us to our destiny.taglines

Mr. Beaver

  • [Peter offers his hand and makes 'tch' noises] Well I'm not goin' to smell it, if that's what you want.
  • Make no mistake. Aslan is on the move.
  • [to Mrs. Beaver] Well, you never know if your next meal's going to be your last. Especially with your cooking.

Lucy Pevensie

  • Narnia! It's all in the wardrobe just like I told you!
  • [to Susan, after they are greeted by Father Christmas] I told you he was real!

Peter Pevensie

  • [to Edmund] Why can't you just do as you're told?
  • [to Edmund] You just have to make everything worse! When are you going to learn to GROW UP?!
  • [to Mr. Beaver] I think you've made a mistake. We're not heroes!
  • [in battle] For Narnia… and for Aslan!
  • [about Mr Beaver] If he tells us to hurry one more time, I'm going to turn him into a big fluffy hat.

Susan Pevensie

  • Did that bird just 'pssst' us ?
  • We're from Finchley!
  • Peter, just because some man in a red coat gives you a sword it doesn't make you a hero!
  • He's a beaver; he shouldn't be saying anything!
  • Lucy, the only wood in here is the back of the wardrobe.
  • Mum sent us away so we wouldn't get caught up in a war.
  • Thank you for your hospitality, but we really have to go.
  • These are the police.
  • We can't just let him go.

Edmund Pevensie

  • [to Peter] You think you're dad, but you're NOT!
  • [mocking Lucy] Didn't I tell you about the football field in the bathroom cupboard?
  • [when he first enters Narnia] Lucy . . . I think I believe you now.
  • [holding up his "tag"] Perhaps we've been incorrectly labeled.
  • [to Lucy] Well, what did you expect! I mean it's freezing. How do we get out of here?

Jadis The White Witch

  • Tonight, the Deep Magic will be appeased, but tomorrow, we will take Narnia forever!
  • Think about whose side you're on, Edmund. Mine... [turns him to the Fox, whom she has just turned to stone] ... or theirs?
  • If it's a war Aslan wants, it's a war he shall get.
  • I have no interest in prisoners. Kill them all.
  • (last word) Impossible!


  • Welcome Peter, son of Adam. Welcome Susan and Lucy, daughters of Eve. And welcome to you, Beavers. You have my thanks. But where is the fourth?
  • Do not cite the Deep Magic to me, Witch. I was there when it was written.
  • [after killing the Witch] It is finished.
  • To the glistening eastern sea, I give you Queen Lucy the Valiant. To the great western woods, King Edmund the Just. To the radiant southern sun, Queen Susan the Gentle. And to the clear northern skies, I give you King Peter the Magnificent. Once a king or queen of Narnia, always a king or queen of Narnia. May your wisdom grace us until the stars rain down from the heavens.


  • [attacking Edmund] Be still, stranger, or you'll never move again.
  • [After he and one of his wolves hunt down Susan and Lucy] Please don't try to run. We're tired, and we prefer to kill you quickly.
  • [to Peter] You may think you're a king, but you're going to die... [attacks him]...LIKE A DOG! (last words)

"HMHM Smart girll."


  • Mr. Tumnus: Always winter, never Christmas.
  • Father Christmas: Winter is almost over ... and things do pile up when you've been gone a hundred years!


Susan: [reading the dictionary] "Gastrovascular"... Come on, Peter. "Gastrovascular".
Peter: Is it Latin?
Susan: Yes.
Edmund: Is it Latin for "worst game ever invented"?
[Susan shuts her dictionary]
Lucy: We could play hide and seek.
Peter: [sarcastically] But we're already having so much fun.

Lucy: [holds out her hand] Pleased to meet you.
[Mr. Tumnus looks at her hand curiously]
Lucy: Oh, you shake it.
Mr. Tumnus: Why?
Lucy: I don't know.

Lucy: Winter's not all bad. There's ice skating...and snowball fights...and oh! Christmas!
Mr. Tumnus: Not here. Here it's always winter, never Christmas. It's been a long winter.

Mr. Tumnus: It's not something I have done, Lucy Pevensie. It's something I'm doing.
Lucy: What are you doing?
Mr. Tumnus: [whispers in tears] I'm kidnapping you.

[During their game of hide-and-seek, when Lucy has just returned from Narnia for the first time]
Lucy: It's all right! I'm back, I'm all right!
Edmund: Shh, he's coming!
Peter: I don't think you two have quite got the idea of this game.
Lucy: But weren't you wondering where I was?
Edmund: That's the point. That's why he was seeking you!
Susan: [coming out of her hiding place] Does this mean I win?
Peter: I don't think Lucy wants to play anymore.
Lucy: But...I've been gone for hours.

Susan: It's our sister, Lucy.
Professor Kirke: The weeping girl.
Susan: Yes, sir. She's upset.
Professor Kirke: Hence the weeping.
Peter: It's nothing. We can handle it.
Professor Kirke: Oh, I can see that.

Peter: You're not saying you believe her?
Professor Kirke: What, and you don't?
Susan: Of course not. I mean, logically, it's impossible.
Professor Kirke: What do they teach in schools these days?

[After Peter hits Edmund with a cricket ball]
Peter: Whoops! Wake up, Dolly Daydream!
Edmund: Why can't we play hide-and-seek again?
Peter: I thought you said it was a kids game.
Susan: Besides, we could all use the fresh air.
Edmund: It's not like there isn't air inside....

[After Edmund bats a cricket ball through a stained glass window and knocks over a suit of armour]
Peter: Well done, Ed.
Edmund: You bowled it!

[When Peter and Susan have just arrived in Narnia for the first time]
Lucy: I'm sure it's just your imagination.
Peter: I don't guess saying we're sorry would quite cover it?
Lucy: No. It wouldn't. [Hits him with a snowball] But that might!

Peter: [to Edmund] You little liar!
Edmund: You didn't believe her either!
Peter: Apologize to Lucy.
[Edmund glares]
Peter: Say you're sorry--
Edmund: All right! I'm sorry!
Lucy: That's all right. Some little children just don't know when to stop pretending.
Edmund: Very funny.

Susan: But we can't go hiking in the snow...dressed like this!
Peter: No...but I'm sure the professor wouldn't mind if we borrowed these. [Hands all of them fur coats] Besides...if you think about it logically, we're not even taking them out of the wardrobe.
[Peter hands Edmund a coat]
Edmund: But that's a girl's coat!
Peter: I know.

Peter: He says he knows the faun.
Susan: He's a beaver! He shouldn't be saying anything!

Mrs. Beaver: Look at my fur. You couldn't give me ten minutes warning?
Mr. Beaver: I would've given you a week if I thought it would've helped.

White Witch: Tell me, Edmund, are your sisters deaf?
Edmund: No.
White Witch: And your brother, is he ... unintelligent?
Edmund: Well, I think so, but Mum says ...

Mr. Beaver: "When Adam's Flesh and Adam's bone sits in Cair Paravel in throne, the evil time will be over and done".
Susan: You know, that doesn't really rhyme.
Mr. Beaver: Yeah, I know it don't, but you're kind of missing the point!

Mr Beaver: Hurry! They're after us!
Peter: What's she doing? [Mr. Beaver shrugs]
Mrs. Beaver: You'll be thanking me later. It's a long journey, and Beaver gets pretty cranky when he's hungry.
Mr. Beaver: I'm cranky now!

[The Pevensies and Beavers get lost in the tunnels]
Mrs Beaver: You should've brought a map!
Mr Beaver: There wasn't room next to the jam!

Mr Beaver: [escaping the wolves] Badger and I dug this tunnel. It leads all the way to his house.
Mrs Beaver: You told me it led to your mum's!

Mr. Beaver: You take one more step, traitor, and I'll chew you to splinters!
Fox: Relax. I'm one of the good guys.
Mr. Beaver: Yeah? Well you look an awful lot like one of the bad ones!
Fox: An unfortunate family resemblance. But we can argue breeding later. Right now we've got to move.

Fox: [to wolves] Greetings, gents. Lost something, have we?
Maugrim: Don't patronise me! I know where your allegiance lies. We're looking for some humans.
Fox: [chuckling] Humans? Here in Narnia? That's a valuable bit of information, don't you think?

White Witch: Do you know why you're here, Faun?
Mr. Tumnus: Because I ... believe ... in a free ... Narnia.
White Witch: You're here, because he [points to Edmund] ... turned you in ... for sweeties!

Mr. Beaver: Come on, hurry up!
Peter: If he tells us to hurry up one more time, I'm gonna turn him into a big, fluffy hat!
Mr. Beaver: Hurry!

Lucy: [looking at a wide river] Don't beavers build dams?
Mr. Beaver: Hey, I'm not that fast, dear..

Susan: I'm just trying to be realistic!
Peter: No, you're trying to be smart. As usual!

Mrs. Beaver: You've been sneaking second helpings, haven't you?
Mr. Beaver: Well, you never know if your next meal's going to be your last. Especially with your cooking.

Fox: Forgive me, your Majesty.
White Witch: Don't waste my time with flattery!
Fox: Not to seem rude, but I wasn't actually talking to you. (looks at Edmund)

Peter: [looking out towards Cair Paravel] Aslan, I'm not who you think I am.
Aslan: Peter Pevensie, formerly of Finchley. Beaver also mentioned that you planned on turning him into a hat. [chuckles]

Edmund: [horse rears up] Whoa, Horsie!
Horse: My name is Phillip.
Edmund: Sorry.

Gryphon: They come, your highness, in numbers and weapons far greater than our own.
General Oreius: Numbers do not win a battle.
Peter: No, but I bet they help.

Peter: Are you with me?
General Oreius: To the death!

Mr. Tumnus: [of Aslan] He's not a tame lion.
Lucy: No ... but he is good.

Professor Kirke: [walking into the room as the children fall out of the wardrobe] What were you all doing in the wardrobe?
Peter: You wouldn't believe us if we told you, sir.
Professor Kirke: [tosses cricket ball to Peter] Try me!
Aslan: "To the great western wood I give king Edmund The Just"
Peter Pevensie: "When are you gonna learn to grow up?"
Edmund Pevensie: Shut up you think your dad but your not"(stroms off)

Aslan: [walking to the side of Peter] That is Cair Paravel, Castle of the four thrones. In one of which you will sit in, as High King. [Peter looks down] You doubt the prophecie?
Peter: No, that's just it. Aslan, I'm not who you think I am.
Aslan: Peter Pevensie, formerly of Finchley. [Peter looks at him astonished] Beaver also mentioned that you planned on turning him into a hat. [Peter smiles and Aslan laughs, then looks at Peter seriously] Peter, there is a deep magic more powerful then any of us. It defines right from wrong. It over sees all our destinies. Yours, and mine.
Peter: But I couldn't reach out over my own family.
Aslan: You brought them safely this far.
Peter: Not all of them.
Aslan: Peter, I will do what I can to save your brother. But I need you to consider what I ask of you. I too want my family safe.
