The NeverEnding Story (1984) Poster

Thomas Hill: Carl Conrad Coreander



  • Mr. Koreander : Your books are safe. While you're reading them, you get to become Tarzan or Robinson Crusoe.

    Bastian : But that's what I like about 'em.

    Mr. Koreander : Ahh, but afterwards you get to be a little boy again.

    Bastian : Wh-what do you mean?

    Mr. Koreander : Listen. Have you ever been Captain Nemo, trapped inside your submarine while the giant squid is attacking you?

    Bastian : Yes.

    Mr. Koreander : Weren't you afraid you couldn't escape?

    Bastian : But it's only a story.

    Mr. Koreander : That's what I'm talking about. The ones you read are safe.

    Bastian : And that one isn't?

  • Bastian : I know books, I have 186 of them at home.

    Mr. Koreander : Ah, comic books.

    Bastian : No, I've read Treasure Island, The Last of the Mohicans, Wizard of Oz, Lord of the Rings, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Tarzan.

    Mr. Koreander : Whoa whoa whoa, who were you running from?

    Bastian : Just some kids from school.

    Mr. Koreander : Why?

    Bastian : They wanted to throw me in the garbage.

    Mr. Koreander : Why don't you give them a good punch in the nose, hm?

  • 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-bee-bee-bee-beeps. On your way please.

  • Mr. Koreander : [Bastian enters Mr. Koreander's bookstore, where he takes refuge from the bullies]  Get out of here! I don't like kids!

    Mr. Koreander : [Bastian makes his way past the stacks of books, where he finds Mr. Koreander]  Are you still here? Did you hear what I said, boy?

    Bastian : [stammers nervously] 

    Mr. Koreander : You're hiding, aren't you? 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-bee-bee-bee-beeps. On your way!
