okay. here's the EDIT: Edward Scissorhands reference. When Willy Wonka has the flashback of him opening the factory and cuttingg the red ribbon, he doesn't use normal scissors. instead, he used the scissorhands from edward. I didn't catch it at first either, then my mom pointed it out to me.
(for anyone who didn't see edward scissorhands, willys whole right hand is a giant pair of rusted scissors)
