Hero Boy: It says...
Conductor: It's nothing I need to know.


Hero Boy: Well, the wind blew it out of my hand. (Shows hero girl his ticket) You can have my ticket!
Conductor: (Shocks himself) These tickets are not transferable! (Gives back the hero boy his ticket) Young lady, you're just gonna have to come along with me!
Know-It-All: You know what's gonna happen now? He's gonna throw her off the train. He's gonna probably throw her right off the rear platform. It's standard procedure. That way, she won't get sucked down under the wheels. They may slow the train down a little bit, but they're never gonna stop it.
Hero Boy: Stop it? That's it! I have to stop the train again.
Know-It-All: No, please, don't do that again.

Hero Girl: It says "lead." Like "lead balloon."
Conductor: I believe it also is pronounced "lead." As in "leader," "leadership." "Lead the way." Follow you anywhere, ma'am.

Hero Girl: It's everything I dreamed it would be.
Billy: Could all this be nothing but a dream?
Hero Boy: No.

Hobo: Is there something I can do for you?
Hero Boy: 'm looking for a girl.
Hobo: A gir...? [Starts laughing] Ain't we all?

Hobo: We gotta make the engine before we hit Flat Top Tunnel.
Hero Boy: How come?
Hobo: So many questions. There is but one inch of clearance between the roof of this rattler and the roof of Flat Top Tunnel. Savvy?

Hobo: What exactly is your persuasion on the big man? Since you brought him up.
Hero Boy: Well, I... I want to believe. But...
Hobo: But you don't wanna be bamboozled. You don't wanna be led down the primrose path. You don't wanna be conned or duped, have the wool pulled over your eyes. Hoodwinked. You don't wanna be taken for a ride, railroaded.

Know-It-All: "Lean." Whatever that's supposed to mean.
Conductor: "Lean" is spelled with four letters. I believe I punched five.
Know-It-All: Hey, are you saying I don't know how to...? Oh, 'm sorry. It says "learn." My mistake.
Conductor: Lesson learned.

Know-It-All: Do you know what kind of train this is?
Hero Girl: Of Course. It's a magic train.
Know-It-All: I know it's a magic train. Actually, it's a Baldwin 2-8-4 S3-class steam locomotive built in 1931 at the Baldwin Locomotive Works. It weighs 456,100 pounds and...

Santa: I see you've made some new friends.
Billy: Yes, sir. I sure have.
Santa: That's a lucky lad. There's no greater gift than friendship.

Santa: What was that you said?
Hero Boy: - I believe. I believe that this is yours. [hands bell to Santa]

Sarah: He said Santa would have to fly faster than the speed of light to get to everyone's house in one night. And to hold everyone's presents his sled would have to be bigger than an ocean liner.
Father: Your brother said that? He was just kidding you. He knows there's a Santa.
Sarah: He said he wasn't sure. He wasn't sure if Santa was for real.

Steamer: I make that herd to be at least a hundred thousand, maybe even a million. It's gonna be hours before they clear this track.
Smokey: A tough nut to crack.
Conductor: We are in some serious jelly.
Steamer: And a jam.
Smokey: Tight spot.
Steamer: Up a creek.
Smokey: Up a tree.
Steamer: in the grass.

When everyone comes home
With all this Christmas cheer
It's hard to be alone
Putting up the Christmas tree
With friends who come around
It's so much fun
When Christmas comes to town

It's a magic carpet on a rail
It never takes a rest
Flying through the mountains and the snow
You can ride for free and join the fun
If you just say yes
'Cause that's the way things happen on the Polar Express
Whoo, whoo, the whistle blows
That's the sound of her singing
Ding, ding, the bell will ring
Golly, look at her go
You wonder if you'll get there soon
Anybody's guess
'Cause that's the way things happen on the Polar Express
When we get there
We'll scream, "Yay!"
We'll arrive with
A bang, bang, bang
Boom, boom, boom
Laughing all the way
