- Bastian: No, not again. No, not again!
- Mr. Koreander: The video arcade is down the street. Here we just sell small rectangular objects. They're called books. They require a little effort on your part, and make no bee-beep-beeps. On your way please.
- G'mork: I am G'mork. And you, whoever you are, can have the honor of being my last victim.
Atreyu: I will not die easily. I am a warrior.
- G'mork: Foolish boy. Don't you know anything about Fantasia? It's the world of human fantasy. Every part, every creature of it, is a piece of the dreams and hopes of mankind. Therefore, it has no boundaries.
Atreyu: But why is Fantasia dying, then?
G'mork: Because people have begun to lose their hopes and forget their dreams. So the nothing grows stronger.
Atreyu: What is the nothing?
G'mork: It's the emptiness that's left. It's like a despair, destroying this world. And I have been trying to help it.
Atreyu: But why?
G'mork: Because people who have no hopes are easy to control. And whoever has control has the Power.
- Atreyu: Who are you really?
G'mork: I am the servant of the Power behind the nothing. I was sent to kill the only one who could have stopped the nothing. I lost him in the Swamps of Sadness. His name was Atreyu.
- Falcor: Never give up and good luck will find you.
- Engywook: The sphinx's eyes stay closed, until someone who does not feel his own worth tries to pass by.
- Engywook: Next is the Magic Mirror Gate. Atreyu will have to look his true self in the face.
Falcor: So? That shouldn't be so hard.
Engywook: Oh, that's what everyone thinks! But kind people find out that they are cruel. Brave men find out that they are really cowards! Confronted by their true selves, most men run away, screaming!
- Atreyu: I didn't get in touch with an earthling!
The Childlike Empress: Yes, You did. He has suffered with you. He went through everything you went through, and now he has come here with you. He is very close, listening to every word, we say.
- Bastian: MOONCHILD!
- The Childlike Empress: One grain of sand. That is all that remains of my once vast empire.
- Bastian: How many wishes do I get?
The Childlike Empress: As many as you want. And the more wishes you make, the more magnificent Fantasia will become.
- Narrator: Bastian made many other wishes, and had many amazing adventures — until he came back to the real world. But that's... another story.
