Delightful Dialogue: The Witches

Helga: Real witches are very cruel, and they have a highly developed sense of smell. A real witch could smell you across the street on a pitch-black night.

Luke: She couldn't smell me. I've just had a shower.
Helga: Oh yes, she could. The cleaner you are, the more a witch can smell you.

Luke: That doesn't make sense.

Helga: Oh, yes it does. A dirty child, it is the dirt she smells. A clean child, it is the child.
Luke: Wow. I'll never have a shower again, and I'll have you for an excuse.

~ Mai Zetterling and Jasen Fisher in The Witches (1990)
