Mrs. Frankenstein: When you lose someone you love, they never really leave you. They just move into a special place in your heart. He’ll always be there, Victor.

Mrs. Frankenstein: I know. If we could bring him back, we would.
“What you can do in stop motion is that there is purity to the emotion. The black and white also added to that for me. If the studio had said to me, ‘Well, you can do the movie but only in color,’ I wouldn’t have done it because it was that important to me to impart that emotional stripping away of things so that you get that simplicity and the strength of what it’s about.”
- Tim Burton
