The Polar Express
Movie Quote Quiz

Hero Boy: At one time most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed it fell silent for all of them. Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound. And though I've grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe.

Conductor: Sometimes seeing is believing. And sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can't see.

Conductor: One thing about trains - it doesn't matter where they're going. What matters is deciding to get on.

Continuity mistake: During the scene when the Polar Express slides across the ice and the conductor is telling the train controllers to head for the tracks, the distance between the train and the tracks keeps changing.

Question: How come the conductor and the hero girl walk on the roof of the train headed towards the front when they could have walked through it, the way they did coming back with the hero boy?
