In the Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, after an Oompa Loompa takes Mike Teavee (inside his Mother's Purse) to the Taffy Pulling Room, Mrs. Teavee faints and then two Oompa Loompas drag her away. Two Questions:

  1. Why did she faint?

  2. Where did the Oompa Loompas take her?

She faints after hearing Willie Wonka's suggestion for fixing Mike's height:

WONKA: so I think we'll put him in my special taffy-pulling machine. That should do the trick.

MIKE (in the purse): I'm warning you, Mom; there's a nail file in here . . .

MRS. TEEVEE: Taffy . . .

WONKA: (to an Oompa Loompa) To the taffy-pulling room.
You'll find the boy in his mother's purse. But be extremely careful.

MIKE (in the purse): (on "You'll") If you don't let me out, I'll [smear your lipstick]*** all over everything.

MRS. TEEVEE: (losing it) T-t-taffy pull-- (as the Oompa Loompa whispers to Willy Wonka) Oh, what's he saying?

(Mike continues to protest.)***

WONKA: (to the Oompa Loompa) No, no, I won't hold you responsible.

She fainted due to Wonka's response which suggest it might not work as he say he will not hold Oompa Loompa responsible if anything goes wrong which worried her.
