"Does wood sink in water?"

"No, no."

"It floats! It floats!"

So Sawyer learned when he experimented with placing various objects in the birdbath near our back door. I have loved having this beautiful burning bush right outside my big window. Most of its leaves have fallen now, but it made for a beautiful view for the past few weeks.

So, what movie is the above quote from?

Here are some more lines, for anyone who enjoys this scene as much as I do...
BEDEMIR:  What also floats in water?
VILLAGER #1:  Bread!
VILLAGER #2:  Apples!
VILLAGER #3:  Very small rocks!
VILLAGER #1:  Cider!
VILLAGER #2:  Great gravy!
VILLAGER #1:  Cherries!
VILLAGER #2:  Mud!
VILLAGER #3:  Churches -- churches!
VILLAGER #2:  Lead -- lead!
ARTHUR:  A duck.
CROWD:  Oooh.
BEDEMIR:  Exactly!  So, logically...,
VILLAGER #1:  If... she.. weighs the same as a duck, she's made of wood.
BEDEMIR:  And therefore--?
VILLAGER #1:  A witch!
CROWD:  A witch!
