Wallace is the main character in Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

Wallace is an inveterate inventor, creating elaborate contraptions that often do not work as intended. He is a self-proclaimed genius, evident from his exclamation when he discovers Hutch's borrowed skill, a talent for all things mechanical. Most of Wallace's inventions look not unlike the designs of W. Heath Robinson and Rube Goldberg, and Nick Park has said of Wallace that all his inventions are designed around the principle of using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.


A Grand Day Out

  • "Eh., these bank holidays, it's a problem to decide..."
  • "Tell ya what, Gromit lad. Let's have a nice hot cup of tea, eh?"
  • "No cheese, Gromit. Not a bit in the house."
  • "Gromit, that's it! Cheese! We'll go somewhere where there's cheese!"
  • "I don't know... it's like no cheese I've ever tasted..."
  • "No crackers, Gromit! We've forgotten the crackers!"
  • "No cheese, Gromit. Not a bit in the house."
  • "The fuse! You forgot to light the fuse!"
  • "Everybody knows the moon is made of cheese..."
  • (While fidgeting with the robot) "Come on, stupid- Oh!"
  • "Let's try another spot."
  • "One for the album!"

The Wrong Trousers

  • Well, this is a fine how-do-you-do, isn't it?
  • No more lodgers - more trouble than they're worth. Well all's well ends well, that's what I say.
  • It's the wrong trousers, Gromit, and they've gone wrong!
  • They're techno trousers, ex-NASA, fantastic for walkies!
  • [Feathers McGraw removes his "chicken" disguise] Good grief! It's YOU!
  • I do like a bit of gorgonzola.
  • Cracking toast, Gromit!
  • It's my turn for breakfast this morning, Gromit.
  • Well Gromit, let's see what's on the 9:05, shall we? Here she comes now. I wonder what this could be? Happy Birthday, chuck!
  • Hang in there Gromit, everything's under control. (relieving Feathers McGraw of his gun)I'll take that if you don't mind, eh? [Looks up and sees kitchen hatch approaching]
  • Tally Ho! Leave him to me; I'll get the bounder!
  • That's quite enough. You'll be hearing from my solicitor about this.
  • (Gromit's trying to rewire the trousers) Watch where you're puttin'them paws!
  • You can't go taking liberties like this; I'm a respectable citizen.
  • I'll give you what-for, you tyke!
  • This wardrobe's nearly new you know.
  • [Gromit uses two wires to make the trousers stamp up and down] My goodness, this'll ruin the woodwork. [Bottom of the wardrobe comes away] Oh! There goes me knotty pine!
  • Nice walkies? How were the techno trousers?
  • No use prevaricating about the bush.

A Close Shave

"Come over here lad - no need to feel sheepish."

"Turn it off!"

"Mice maybe?"

"We've tested this on Gromit - haven't we lad?"

"Do something, Gromit!"

"I'll look smashing in this. A bit tight here and there ..."

"The bounce has gone from his bungie."

"Oh, charming. I'm Wallace."

"Windows are our speciality."

"Oh yes, I'm inventing mostly."

"Brilliant teamwork, lads!"

"I suppose you'll have to skip the country now. A fugitive, eh. You'll be hunted down like... well, a dog."

"You're not going to turn me into dog meat."

"Steady on - single file. Single file I said!"

"Get yourselves organised down there!"

"Where did you get that from?! That's my machine! I've got patent pending on that!"


"By 'eck, I thought we were all for the can then."

"Not even Wensleydale?"

"What's wrong with Wensleydale??"

"Get off me cheese! GET OFF!"

: "Mal-what?! "Cyber-what?!"

"HUH?!, you think we should call the pest control people in?"

"Have you been peckish during the night? Only someone's been at me cheese..."

"Porridge today, Gromit. Tuesday."


"Get yourselves organised down there!"

The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

  • "I'm in the mood for food!"
  • "It's just a bit of...harmless brain alteration, that's all."
  • "Full suction!"
  • "Oh, very cheeky!"
  • "What's up, dog?" (an obvious reference to the Time Warner characters. At this moment in the film Wallace has grown bunny ears.)
  • "I'm just crackers about cheese!"
  • "Say no to carrots, cabbage, and cauliflower!"
  • "Love, Gromit! That's the biggest trap of all!"
  • Oh come on lad. Be a bit more...alluring. [Gromit starts to make the rabbit do a sexy dance to The Stripper]
  • We've created a monster!
  • "Oh, it's hopeless. I'll never fix this flippin' machine. Me mind's just a rabbity mush." (sniffles) "Oh, Gromit. I-I don't want to be a giant rabbit!"

A Matter Of The Loaf and Death

  • "Well done, lad! [Takes out burnt toast] Very well done..."
  • "Light as a feather, I'm the Bake-O'-Lite Girl."
  • "Curse that balloon."
  • Wallace: "You don't think Piella is the..."
  • "Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Gromit! There's a bomb in me pants!"
  • "Afternoon Sisters."
