Mary Poppins Returns (2018)
Mary Poppins: [singing to Georgie, Annabel, and John] Nothing's gone forever, only out of place.
Jane Banks: [to Mary Poppins] What brings you here after all this time?
Mary Poppins: Same thing that brought me the first time: I've come to look after the Banks children.
Anabel Banks: Us?
Mary Poppins: Oh yes, you, too.
Michael Banks: [after Georgie opens the door to reveal Mary Poppins's entrance; he stares partially open-mouthed] Mary...
Jane Banks: Poppins!
Mary Poppins: Close your mouth, please, Michael, we are *still* not a codfish.
[he does so, then Jane giggles briefly]
Mary Poppins: Jane Banks, still rather inclined to giggle, I see.
[she sets her carpet bag down on a small couch]
Michael Banks: Good heavens, it really is you! You seem hardly to have aged at all!
Mary Poppins: *Really*? How incredibly rude! One *never* discusses a woman's age, Michael. Would have hoped I taught you better.
Michael Banks: I'm sorry, I didn't mean...
Jane Banks: [interuppts] You came back! I thought we'd never see you again.
Michael Banks: It is wonderful to see you!
Mary Poppins: [primping herself in the mirror] Yes it 'tis, isn't it?
Mary Poppins: Everything is possible, even the impossible.
Anabel Banks: But we don't need a nanny.
John Banks: We have grown up a good deal in the past year.
Mary Poppins: [looking around the nursery room] Well, we'll have to see what can be done about that.
Balloon Lady: Of course, the grown-ups will all forget by tomorrow.
Mary Poppins: They always do.
Balloon Lady: Only one balloon left, Mary Poppins. I think it must be yours.
Mary Poppins: I suppose it must. Practically perfect in every way.
Mary Poppins: When the world turns upside down, the best thing to do is turn right along with it.
Jane Banks: [to the children] When your father and I were young, we used to imagine Mary Poppins could do all *sorts* of impossible things! Those things didn't really...
Michael Banks: Happen?
Jane Banks: No, of course not.
Michael Banks: Ridiculous.
[They say this oblivious to the fact that Mary Poppins is sliding up the bannister again behind them]
Mary Poppins: [to a dolphin, who's just popped up from the bathtub chirping eagerly] No, not yet.
Mary Poppins: Nothing. Such a useful word, isn't it? It can mean anything and everything.
Balloon Lady: [from trailer; to Michael] You've forgotten what it's like... to be a child.
Mary Poppins: [singing] Some people like to splash and play; can you imagine that? And take a seaside holiday; can you imagine that?
Georgie Banks: How'd she do that?
Jack: One thing you should know about Mary Poppins: she never explains anything.
Mary Poppins: [whispering excitedly before sinking herself into a bubble bath] Off we go!
Mary Poppins: [singing] So, perhaps we've learnt when day is done, some stuff and nonsense could be fun!
Georgie Banks: [seeing Mary Poppins catch her carpetbag and umbrella] How'd you do that?
Mary Poppins: Do what?
Mary Poppins: [after she lands in the park with the kite, which Jack and Georgie reeled in earlier] You need to be more careful when the wind rises, George; you nearly lost your kite.
[to Annabel and John]
Mary Poppins: And you two nearly lost your Georgie. He might have got away completely had I not been holding on to the other end of that string.
Mary Poppins: We're on the brink of adventure, children. Don't spoil it with too many questions.
Mary Poppins: When you change the view from where you stood, the things you view will change for good.
Jack: May I assure you, you look lovely as always!
Mary Poppins: Do you really think so? Nice to see you, Jack.
Jack: Good to see you, too, Mary Poppins.
Mr. Dawes Jr.: Once upon a time, there was a man with a wooden leg named...
Jack: There's a different point of view awaiting you if you just look up.
Jack: [as he and Georgie see Mary Poppins descending on his kite, then they reel it in] As I live and breathe...
Michael Banks: [as he gazes at the snow globe of St. Paul's Cathedral, then bringing out his and Jane's kite] I honestly can't remember why we kept most of this stuff to begin with. Why on earth did we save this old, broken thing?
Jane Banks: [snatching the kite away] Don't you remember that kite? We used to love flying that with Mother and Father.
Michael Banks: Well, it won't fly anymore. Out it goes; no looking back.
Jack: It's a good thing you've come along when you did, Mary Poppins.
Michael Banks: So you've been off filling the children's heads with stuff and nonsense?
Georgie Banks: Father, Aunt Jane, come quick! Quickly!
Michael Banks: [as he and Jane enter from upstairs] What is it, Georgie?
Jane Banks: Did something happen?
Georgie Banks: I was flying the kite, and it got caught on a nanny!
Jane Banks: Whatever are you talking about?
Georgie Banks: [taking Michael by the hand and leading him and Jane downstairs] Come, come look!
Michael Banks: Wait, where did you get that kite?
Georgie Banks: I found it in the park.
[he opens the door to reveal Mary Poppins]
Georgie Banks: *She* kept it from blowing away.
Mary Poppins: Good heavens Annabel, what have you done to your clothes? You could grow a *garden* with that much soil.
Michael Banks: [tearfully to Georgie, Annabel, and John] We're about to lose our home! Everything's fallen to pieces since your mother...
John Banks: What's a leerie?
Jack: Why, it's what we lamplighters call ourselves, of course. Leeries, trip the lights and lead the way!
Jack: You see, there's nothing to it.
Anabel Banks: Can you speak leerie, Mary Poppins?
Mary Poppins: Can I speak leerie?
Jack: Of course she can; she's Mary Poppins!
Georgie Banks: Can we do it with you?
Mary Poppins: Oh, very well then.
[Mr. Dawes, Jr. arrives at the bank]
Mr. Dawes Jr.: He has you there, Willy.
Wilkins: Uncle Dawes? What on earth are you doing here?
Mr. Dawes Jr.: A little bird told me.
[turns to the Parrot umbrella, winks and Parrot umbrella winks at him back]
Georgie Banks: What are you doing?
[Gooding and Frye gasps]
Wilkins: Well, well, if it isn't the boy who cracked the bowl. We've waited a long time for you Banks children to come and visited. So, he could pay and visit to your nursery.
Georgie Banks: But... But, those are our things.
Wilkins: Oh, not anymore, they aren't.
Georgie Banks: [sees Gilly in the box] Give Gilly back!
Ellen: [about the visiting lawyers] The wolves are at the door.
Michael Banks: What do they want?
Ellen: Well, a good thrashing, if you ask me.
Ellen: How exactly am I supposed to make breakfast when there's nothing in the larder but pickled herrings and marmalade?
Michael Banks: The groceries. I meant to go yesterday.
Ellen: Very well. Pickled herrings for breakfast and marmalade for lunch.
Mary Poppins: [seeing the mess Michael and Jane leave] My goodness, gracious, glory me. You'd think by now they'd have learned to pick up after themselves.
Anabel Banks: [glancing at the repaired bowl] John, look. Mary Poppins' scarf. It wasn't a dream after all.
John Banks: Shall we tell her?
Anabel Banks: Better not. I expect she already knows.
Mary Poppins: Georgie, this is a nursery, let me remind you, not a music hall.
Georgie Banks: Can we have another bath?
Mary Poppins: Oh, pish-posh.
Mary Poppins: [to John and Anabel] If you two are going to keep up all of this whispering, I'd like you to practice doing so as loudly as possible. It will still be bad manners, but at least then we'll all be in on the secret.
Anabel Banks: Where are we?
Jack: [tapping a glass leaf] Looks like we're in china, so to speak.
Mary Poppins: Over here, everyone. This wheel won't fix itself. Now, tread lightly; this is fine porcelain, and we don't want to chip the glaze.
Wilkins: That's Banks.
Frye: He's made it in time!
Wilkins: Not yet he hasn't. Get down there and make sure he doesn't get inside until that blasted clock strikes 12.
Frye: But, sir...
Wilkins: Now, Mr. Frye!
Michael Banks: Did you have something to do with them trying to save the house?
Mary Poppins: I never said a word. It was all the children's idea.
Michael Banks: The whole time I've been looking after them, they've been looking after me. I had it all backward.
Mary Poppins: A Banks family trait.
Michael Banks: What was I thinking?
Mary Poppins: Some people think a great deal too much. Of that I'm certain.
Jack: Say, what's with all the glum faces? Lost sixpence and found a penny?
Anabel Banks: We've made a mess of everything.
John Banks: Father's furious with us.
Georgie Banks: And we can't find our way home.
Jack: Lost? Are you, Mary Poppins?
Mary Poppins: Hopelessly.
Anabel Banks: Which way do we go, Mary Poppins?
Mary Poppins: Now, why would you ask me? The three of you are leading the way, after all.
Anabel Banks: Us?
John Banks: But we were...
Mary Poppins: Walking around in a fog.
Anabel Banks: No, we weren't. I mean, we are in a fog, but...
John Banks: We were only talking.
Mary Poppins: Yes, too focused on where you've been to pay attention to where you're going.
John Banks: But Father told us to go straight home.
Anabel Banks: He'll be furious if we're late.
Mary Poppins: Not much to be done about that now, is there?
Mary Poppins: You have guests, cousin. You might at least greet them at the door.
Cousin Topsy: And how am I to do that, please, when I am down here, up on the ceiling?
Mary Poppins: We need you to fix this bowl, dear.
Cousin Topsy: No, no, no, no, no. It is as I have told to you, second Wednesday of the month, when everything is turning turtle.
Anabel Banks: Turning turtle? What exactly does that mean?
Cousin Topsy: It means my whole world goes flippity-flop like a turtle on his back. And I don't know my up from my down, my east from my west, my topsy from my bottomsy.
Mary Poppins: Yes, I think we've all grasped the concept.
Cousin Topsy: Good. That's quick for you.
Ellen: Michael, your briefcase! Blimey, he'd leave his head on the breakfast table if it weren't screwed on.
Mary Poppins: Here, Ellen. I'll take the briefcase. The children and I are heading that way on an errand. We'll stop by the bank afterwards.
Jack: I'll give you a lift. My rounds are done.
Mary Poppins: Wonderful.
Jack: [leading them to his bicycle] All aboard, everyone. Come on.
Anabel Banks: On the bicycle? But there are five of us. We can't all fit.
John Banks: The weight on those wheels alone. Mary Poppins, how much do you weigh?
Jack: [her eyes widen in shock] Never you mind about that. It's all a question of balance.
Mary Poppins: You were having a nice sort of nightmare, I must say.
Georgie Banks: You were right, Mary Poppins! A cover is not the book. We thought they were nice, but they were mean!
Mary Poppins: Whatever are you talking about?
Georgie Banks: They tried to take Gillie!
Mary Poppins: No, Gillie is right here, sleeping, as you should be.
Georgie Banks: But it was all real! They stole all our things and the wolf said we were never going to see our home again!
Mary Poppins: That is absurd.
John Banks: But I had a nightmare like that, too.
Anabel Banks: So did I. It seemed awfully real.
Georgie Banks: I don't want to lose our home.
Wolf: Hurry, hurry! Only a few seats left! Get tickets while you can for the one-night only, and only...
Wolf: Mary Poppins! What an honor it is to have you join us this evening.
Mary Poppins: Thank you.
Wolf: And who is this I see? Why, it's John, Anabel, and Georgie Banks!
John Banks: You know us?
Wolf: Of course. Everyone knows the Banks children.
Badger: We've all been watching you in the nursery for years.
Weasel: It's so good to finally meet you.
Wolf: Hurry along, now. Get yourselves some peanuts and candy floss and go right on in.
Georgie Banks: May we, Mary Poppins?
Mary Poppins: Yes.
Georgie Banks: [hurrying away with Anabel and John] Come on! Let's get candy floss!
Mary Poppins: Just keep away from the edge of the bowl.
Anabel Banks: Mother always had us take our baths in the evening.
Mary Poppins: Well, in my experience, Anabel, the perfect time of day to have a bath is when one needs a wash. Georgie, you will go first.
John Banks: [stopping Georgie as he moves forward] We are perfectly capable of drawing our own baths.
Mary Poppins: How very helpful, John. In that case, you may turn off the tap.
[he moves to do so]
Mary Poppins: But not quite yet. Still need to put in the bubbles.
John Banks: But I don't like soap bubbles.
Mary Poppins: Well, then you shall have to try to avoid them at all costs.
John Banks: She's a tough nut, isn't she?
Anabel Banks: Can you please get the door? I've got the plumbers here.
Ellen: That was quick work, wasn't it?
[handing a mop and towels to Georgie]
Ellen: Here, Georgie. Take them.
[the knocking on the front door continues]
Ellen: Yes, I'm coming! Blimey.
Gooding: [as she opens the door] Ah! Good morning, mum.
Ellen: They don't look much like plumbers to me.
Anabel Banks: I meant on the phone.
Gooding: We are not plumbers, we are lawyers.
Ellen: Lawyers? And here's me hoping you might prove useful.
Jack: Bucks and mares, cubs and does, welcome to our show of shows! 'Tis my great honor to introduce this evening's renowned guest: the one... the only... Mar - y Poppins!
[During the song "The Cover is Not The Book"]
Penguin #1: [about one of Uncle Gutenburg's stories] Mary Poppins, could you give us an example?
Mary Poppins: Certainly!
[Mary Poppins "plants" a kiss on the penguin's bill with her finger]
Penguin #1: [lovestrickened] Mm!
[the penguin wiggles his eyebrows coyily at Mary Poppins as the Royal Doulton Hall audience laughs]
