"It must be very uncomfortable for the dormouse..."

No room-No room


"I didn't know it was your table.."

Your hair wants cutting


"You should learn not to make personal remarks..."

Why is a raven like a writing desk?


"Come, we shall have some fun now..."

Do you mean you think you could find out the answer to it?


"I do. At least-at least I mean what I say..."

Not the same thing a bit. Why, you might just as well say that "I see what I eat" is the same thing as "I eat what I see."


You might as well say that "I like what I get."...

It's the same thing with you. (Long Pause) What day of the month is it?


"The fourth"

Two days wrong! I told you butter wouldn't suit the works.


"It was the best butter."

Yes, but some crumbs must have gotten in as well. You should not have put it in with the bread knife.


"What a funny watch!..."

Why should it? Does your watch tell what year it is?


"Of course not..."

Which is just the case with mine.


"I don't quite understand you."

The Dormouse is asleep again.


"Of course of course..."

Have you guessed the riddle yet?



I haven't the slightest idea.


"I think you might do something better..."

If you knew time as well as I do, you wouldn't talk about wasting it, it's /him/.


"I don't know what you mean."

Of course you don't. I dare say you never even spoke to Time.


"Perhaps not..."

Ah! That accounts for it. He won't stand for beating. Now if you only kept on good terms with him, he'd do almost anything you liked with the clocks. For instance, suppose it were nine o'clock in the morning, just Time to begin lessons, you'd only have to whisper a hint to Time, and round goes the clock in a twinkling. Half-past one! Time for dinner.
