In this 'Speechless' preview, Driver's Maya pretends she is bummed about having to go to court but internally slips into a reverie about how she's going to have to do nothing at all.

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory was a magical movie for children and adults alike. Because Gene Wilder created that land of “Pure Imagination” as Wonka — just one of his many successful roles — he earned a special spot in the hearts of all those who watched it.
On Today Wednesday, all five kids who found golden tickets in Willy Wonka the Chocolate Factory way back in 1971, reunited after 44 years. They reminisced about many things including what it was like to play Veruca Salt, the scene that took 76 takes because it involved in Oompa Loompa doing cartwheels, and of course working with a legend like Gene Wilder.
