Edna "E" Mode

  • My God, you've gotten fat.
  • I never look back, darling. It distracts from the now.
  • Supermodels--ha! Nothing super about them. Spoiled, stupid little stick-figures with poofy lips who think only about themselves. Feh! I used to design for gods!
  • You can't! It's impossible! I'm far too busy, so ask me now before I again become sane.
  • No capes!
  • Well, I'm sure I don't know, darling; luck favors the prepared. I didn't know the baby's powers, so I covered the basics.
  • I cut it a little roomy for the free movement. The fabric is comfortable for sensitive skin, and it can also withstand a temperature of over one thousand degrees. Completely bulletproof, and machine-washable, darling. That's a new feature.
  • Your boy's suit I designed to withstand enormous friction without heating up or wearing out. A useful feature.
  • Your daughter's suit was tricky but I finally created a sturdy material that will disappear completely if she does.
  • Your suit can stretch as far as you can without injuring yourself, and still retain its shape. Virtually indestructible, yet it breathes like Egyptian cotton.
  • An as extra feature, each suit contains a homing device, giving you the precise global location of the wearer at the touch of a button.
  • Yes. He attempts to relive the past.
  • What are you talking about? You are Elastigirl! My God! Pull yourself together! What will you do? Is-is-is this a question?! You will show him that you remember that he is Mr. Incredible! And you will remind him, who you are! Well, you know where he is... Go! Confront the problem! Fight! Win! And call me when you get back, darling, I enjoy our visits.
  • [speaking into a voice-activated lock] Edna Mode. [several guns appear and point at Helen] And guest. [guns withdraw]
  • Yes, words are useless. Gobble, gobble, gobble. There is too much of it, darling. Too much. That is why I show you my work! That is why you are here!
  • You come in one hour, darling. I insist. Okay? Okay. Goodbye.
  • Do you remember Thunderhead? Tall, storm powers. Nice man. Good with kids.
  • Stratogale! April 23rd, '57. Cape caught in a jet turbine.

Mr. Incredible (Bob Parr)

  • Every super has a secret identity; I don't know a single one who doesn't. I mean, who wants the pressure of being super all the time?
  • No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again! Sometimes I just want it to stay saved, you know? For a little bit. I feel like the maid: "I just cleaned up this mess! Can we keep it clean for, for 10 minutes?! Please?!"
  • I've still got time. [repeatedly, during a series of crises as he heads toward his wedding]
  • [Bob is confronted with a helpless elderly client] Okay...listen closely — I'd like to help you, but I can't. I'd like to tell you to take a copy of your policy to Norma Wilcox on -- [gestures the client to write down the info] Norma Wilcox, W-I-L-C-O-X, on the 3rd floor, but I can't. I also do not advise you to fill out a WS-2574 form with our legal department on the 2nd floor. I would not expect someone to get back to you quickly to resolve the matter. I'd like to help, but there's nothing I can do. [The woman begins to thank him] Shh! [in a loud voice] I'm sorry ma'am, I know you're upset! [whispers] pretend to be upset!
  • [about Dash's graduation] It is not a graduation. He's moving from the 4th grade to the 5th grade.
  • Reliving the glory days is better than acting like they never happened!
  • It's psychotic! They keep inventing new ways to celebrate mediocrity. But when someone is genuinely exceptional--
  • Showtime [repeated line]
  • You keep trying to pick a fight, while I'm still just happy that you're alive.
  • Hey, come on. We're superheroes. What could happen? [to Helen at their wedding, shortly before onslaught of lawsuits that brought about the Superhero Ban.]
  • No, there isn't. Why are you here? How can you possibly bring me lower? What more can you take away from me? [released by Mirage]
  • How could I betray the perfect woman?
  • You are my greatest adventure, and I almost missed it. I swear I'll get us out of here.
  • Fly home Buddy, I work alone.
  • I'm sorry, Mrs. Hogenson, but our liability is spelled out in paragraph 17.

Elastigirl (Helen Parr)

  • I think you need to be a little more...flexible.
  • Of course I have a secret identity! Can you see me in this [indicates her super-suit] at the, at the supermarket? Come on! I don't want to go shopping as Elastigirl, you know what I mean?
  • Settle down? Are you kidding? I'm at the top of my game! I'm right up there with the big dogs! Girls, come on! Leave the saving of the world to the men? I don't think so! I don't think so.
  • When you asked me if I was doing anything later, I didn't realize you'd actually forgotten. I thought it was playful banter.
  • Is this... rubble?
  • We're superheroes. What could happen? [just prior to battle]
  • Everybody calm down. Now, I'll tell you what we're not gonna do. We're not gonna panic, we're not gonna--look out!
  • We are NOT gonna die! Now, both of you will get a grip, or so help me, I'll ground you for a month! Understand?!
  • Your identity is your most precious possession. Protect it.
  • Remember the bad guys, on those shows you used to watch on Saturday mornings? Well, these guys are not like those guys. They won't exercise restraint because you're children. They will kill you if they get the chance. Do not give them that chance.
  • Island approach, India-Golf Niner-Niner checking in, VFR on top, over. Island Tower, this is India-Golf Niner-Niner, requesting vectors to the initial, over. [Helen hailing Nomanisan]
  • India-Golf Niner-Niner, transmitting in the blind guard — disengage, repeat, disengage! Disengage, repeat disengage! Friendlies at two-zero miles south-southwest of your position, angels 10, track east, over!
  • Mayday! Mayday! India-Golf Niner-Niner is buddy-spiked! Abort-abort, there are children aboard this airplane! Abort-abort-abort! Abort-abort!! [Helen desperately hails Nomanisan, explosion]
  • Shhh. It isn't your fault. It wasn't fair for me to suddenly ask so much of you. But things are different now. And doubt is a luxury we can't afford anymore, sweetie. You have more power than you realize. Don't think. And don't worry! If the time comes, you'll know what to do. It's in your blood.
  • Pig-headedness?
  • What do I think? Bob is retired! I'm retired! Our whole family is underground! You helped him resume secret hero work behind my back?!

Frozone (Lucius Best)

  • Super-ladies, they're always trying to tell you their secret identity. [whispering] Think it'll strengthen the relationship or something like that! I say, "Girl, I don't wanna know about your mild-mannered alter ego or anything like that." I mean, you tell me you're, uh, super-mega-ultra-lightning babe? That's all right with me. I'm good. I'm good.
  • To tell you the truth, I'd rather go bowling. Look - what if we actually did what our wives think we're doing? Just to shake things up.
  • I don't see anyone from the old days, Bob. Just you. And we're pushing our luck as it is.
  • Aw - now... that ain't right!
  • We look like bad guys! Incompetent bad guys!
  • I'm thirsty. I'm just getting a drink.
  • I know, I know. Freeze!
  • I wanted to go bowling!
  • Where's my super-suit?
  • He starts monologuing! He starts, like, this prepared speech about how feeble I am compared to him. How inevitable my defeat is, how the world will soon be his, yadda-yadda-yadda... Yammerin'! I mean, the guy has me on a platter, and he won't shut up!
  • YOU TELL ME WHERE MY SUIT IS, WOMAN! We are talking about the greater good!

Dash (Dashiell Parr)

  • I promise I'll slow up! I'll only be the best by a tiny bit!
  • You always say, "Do your best," but you don't really mean it. Why can't I do the best I can do?
  • She'd eat if we were having Tonyloaf!
  • We're dead! We're dead! We survived but we're dead!
  • You wanna go toward the people that tried to kill us?
  • And those guys tried to kill us! That was the best vacation ever! [sighs] I love our family.
  • Does this mean we have to move again? [after a huge explosion destroys the Parrs' house]
  • [After Elastigirl says everyone is special] Which is another way of saying nobody is.
  • Let's do that again!
  • The Dash likes.
  • How are you doing that?
  • Whatever you do, don't stop!
  • I'm alive!
  • Violet?
  • [After Violet talks about Jack-Jack being Normal] Lucky--I meant about being normal.
  • Hey, no force fields!

Violet Parr

  • Normal? What do you know about "normal"? What does anyone in this family know about "normal"? We act normal, Mom; I want to be normal! The only normal one is Jack-Jack, and he's not even toilet-trained!
  • I said, shut up, you little insect!
  • Mom? Mom, w-what happened on the plane, I--I-I'm sorry, I wanted to help--I-I mean, when you asked me to, to--I'm sorry.
  • [As Dash sprints out of an exploding cave] What did you do?!
  • Well, I think Dad has made some excellent progress today, but I think it's time we wind down now.
  • I feel different. Is different okay?
  • [While invisible in front of Tony Rydinger] He looked at me.
  • [While Tony is trying to ask her out] Shh... I like movies. I'll buy the popcorn, okay?
  • Dash, remember what Mom said. Dash, run. Run!
  • We don't need to. Just use the coordinates from the last launch. [Violet advising on rockets]
  • But you said never to use--
  • It blew up!

Syndrome (Buddy Pine/Incrediboy)

  • All I wanted was to help you. I only wanted to help! And what did you say to me?! (Remembers Mr. Incredible saying, "Fly home, Buddy. I work alone."; cuts to furious-looking young Buddy staring up at a Mr. Incredible poster in a frame and then tearing it down) It tore me apart. But I learned an important lesson: you can't count on anyone, especially your heroes!
  • See? Now you respect me, because I'm a threat. That's the way it works. It turns out there are lots of people, whole countries who want respect, and they will pay through the nose to get it. How do you think I got rich? I invented weapons. And now I have a weapon that only I can defeat. And when I unleash it-- (Mr. Incredible throws a log at him. Syndrome hits him with zero-point energy) [chuckling] You sly dog! You got me monologuing! I can't believe it.
  • You, sir, truly are Mr. Incredible! You know, I was right to idolize you. I always knew you were tough, but tricking the probe by hiding under the bones of another super?! Oh, man! I'm still geeking out about it!
  • I knew you couldn't do it, even when you've got nothing to lose. You're weak, and I've outgrown you.
  • Time out!
  • What have we here? Matching uniforms? Oh, no. Elastigirl? You married Elastigirl?! [laughs, then looks at Violet and Dash] And got busy! It's a whole family of Supers! Looks like I've hit the jackpot! Oh-ho, this is just too good!
  • I'll give them heroics. I'll give them the most spectacular heroics they've ever seen! And when I'm old and I've had my fun, I'll sell my inventions so everyone can be superheroes! Everyone can be super! And when everyone's super, [laughs maniacally] no one will be.
  • Am I good enough now? Who's super now?! I'm Syndrome, your nemesis and-- [He then realizes he accidentally threw Mr. Incredible into the distance. He then says to himself] Oh, brilliant!
  • You took away my future. I'm simply returning the favor. Oh, no, don't worry, I'll be a good mentor: supportive, encouraging, everything you weren't. And in time, who knows? He might make a good sidekick.
  • [last line] This isn't the end of it! I will get your son eventually! I'll get your son! [laughs, then realizes Mr. Incredible has thrown his car at him] Oh, no! [gets knocked out of his plane and screams as he is sucked into a jet engine]
  • [in the short "Jack-Jack Attack, when lying to Kari that the S on his costume stands for "Sitter"] Originally I was going to have the initials for "babysitter," but then I would have been going around wearing a big "BS," and you can understand why I couldn't go with that!

Mirage

  • Hello, Mister Incredible. Yes, we know who you are. Rest assured, your secret is safe with us.
  • We have something in common. According to the government, neither of us exists.
  • Please pay attention, as this message is classified and will not be repeated. I represent a top secret division of the government, designing and testing experimental technology, and we are in need of your unique abilites.
  • The supers aren't gone, Mister Incredible. You're still here. You can still do great things. Or... you can listen to police scanners. Your choice.
  • He's attracted to power. So am I. It's a... weakness we share.
  • He's not weak, you know. Valuing life is not a weakness. And disregarding it is not strength.
  • Next time you gamble, bet your own life!
  • [before sending Mr. Incredible off against Omnidroid 08] And don't die.
  • You have 24 hours to respond. Think about it.
  • Say please.
  • Everything at the table was grown right here. How does it compare?
  • [Bob is choking her] Family...survived the crash! They're here on the island! [Bob lets go; she gasps and coughs]
  • There isn't much time.
  • He's not alone. The fat guy is still with him. They're just...talking.
  • Trust me. This is the one he's been looking for.

Others

  • Anti-Super Spokeswoman: It is time for their secret identity to become their only identity. Time for them to join us, or go away.
  • "Go save yourself!" ~ picket sign in crowd of anti-super protesters
  • Bernie (Dash's Teacher): I don't know how he does it, but before he moves, there's no tack on my stool, and after he moves, there's a tack! Coincidence? I think not!
  • Rusty: That was totally wicked!
  • Rusty: [after Bob asks him what he wants] I don't know, something amazing, I guess.
  • Henchman: [Whilst watching Omnidroid attack the city on TV] Hey, every time they run, you take a shot.
  • Rick Dicker: We've frozen all of Syndrome's assets. If he so much as sneezes, we'll be there with a hanky and a pair of handcuffs.
  • Kari: Because leading experts say, Mozart makes babies smarter. I wish my parents played Mozart when I was asleep because half the time I don't even know what the heck anyone's talking about!
  • The Underminer: Behold the Underminer! I am always beneath you, but nothing is beneath me! I hereby declare war against peace and happiness! Soon all will tremble before me!

Dialogue

[Mr. Incredible is about to go to the scene of a tour bus robbery when Buddy Pine enters the car.]
Buddy: Cool! Ready for takeoff!
Mr. Incredible: What the--? Who are you supposed to be?
Buddy: Well, I'm IncrediBoy!
Mr. Incredible: What? No. You're that kid from the fan club! Brothy--Bro--Brody--Bu--Buddy! Buddy!
Buddy: My name is IncrediBoy!
Mr. Incredible: Look, I've been nice, I've stood for photos, signed every scrap of paper you pushed at me, but this is--
Buddy: No, no, no. You don't have to worry about training me. I know all your moves, your crime fighting style, favorite catch phrases, everything! I'm your number one fan!
[Buddy is ejected from the car and the Incredibile speeds away]
Buddy: Hey! Hey, wait!

Mr. Incredible: I work alone.
Elastigirl: And I think you need to be more [she goes through rapid series of stretch-power maneuvers] flexible.
Mr. Incredible: Uh, are you doing anything later?
Elastigirl: I have a previous engagement.

[Mr. Incredible confronts a French villain called Bomb Voyage]
Mr. Incredible: Bomb Voyage.
Bomb Voyage: Monsieur Incroyable! [French for "Mr. Incredible!"]
Buddy: [showing up at the window] And IncrediBoy!
Bomb Voyage: [not French, but with an accent] "IncrediBoy"?!
Buddy: [flies up to Mr. Incredible using rocket-boots] Hey, hey! Aren't you curious about how I get around so fast? See, I have these rocket boots--
Mr. Incredible: [sternly] Go home, Buddy.
Buddy: What?
Mr. Incredible: Now.
Bomb Voyage: Petit naïf libe! [Little oaf!]
Buddy: Can we talk? [pulls Mr. Incredible off to the side] You always, always say "Be true to yourself," but you never say which part of yourself to be true to! Well, I've finally figured out who I am! I am your ward: IncrediBoy!
Mr. Incredible: And now, you have officially carried it too far, Buddy. [grabs Bomb Voyage before he can escape]
Buddy: This is because I don't have powers, isn't it?! Well, not every superhero has powers, you know. You can be super without them! I invented these. [points to his rocket boots] I can fly! Can you fly?
Mr. Incredible: Fly home, Buddy. I work alone.
Bomb Voyage: Et ton costume est complètement ridicule! [And your outfit is totally ridiculous!]

[Bob Parr arrives at the church for his wedding at the last second.]
Bob: Hey, is the night still young?
Lucius: You're very late.
Bob: How do I look? Good?
Lucius: Oh, the mask! You still got the mask.
Bob: Showtime!
Minister: Robert Parr, will you have this woman to be your lawfully-wedded wife?
Helen [whispering]: You're late. When you asked me if I was doing anything later, I didn't realize you'd actually forgotten. I thought it was playful banter.
Bob: It was playful banter.
Helen: Cutting it kind of close, don't you think?
Bob: You need to be more flexible.
Helen: I love you, but if we're gonna make this work, you gotta be more than Mr. Incredible. You know that.

Mr. Incredible: Hey, I saved your life!
Mr. Sansweet: You didn't save my life! You ruined my death, that's what you did!
Lawyer: [restrains Sansweet] My client has no further comment at this time.

Mr Huph: Pa-a-a-a-a-a-r-r-r-r-r! You authorized payment on the Walker policy?!
Bob Parr: Someone broke into their house, Mr. Huph. Their policy clearly covers--
Mr Huph: I don't wanna know about their coverage, Bob! Don't tell me about their coverage! Tell me how you're keeping Insuricare in the black. Tell me how that's possible, with you writing checks to every Harry Hardluck and Sally Sobstory that gives you a phone call!

[After Dash has been sent to the Principal's office]
Helen: What's this all about? Has Dash done something wrong?
Principal: Well--
Teacher (Bernie): [Pompously] He's a disruptive influence, and he openly mocks me in front of the class.
Dash: [Sullenly] He says.
Bernie: Look, I know it's you! He puts thumbtacks on my stool!
Helen: You saw him do this?
Bernie: Well, no, actually not.
Helen: Oh - then how do you know it was him?
Bernie: [Brandishing a videotape] I hid a camera! [Dash looks worried; Helen glares at Dash] And this time I got him!
[Bernie plays the tape; as he is sitting down, a barely distinguishable blur passes between Dash's desk and Bernie's seat]
Bernie: He moves! Right there! [Helen, Dash and the Principal squint at the camera, bewildered] What, you don't see it?
[Exasperated, he rewinds the tape and points at Dash, who moves imperceptibly]
Bernie: Right - right there! No; right - there! Right as I'm sitting down! I dunno! I dunno how he does it, but before he moves there's not a tack and after he moves there's a tack! Coincidence? I think not!
[Helen gives an incredulous and confusing look at the principal]
Principal: [Gently] Uh, Bernie...
Bernie: Don't "Bernie" me! [Shrieking] This little rat is guilty!
Principal: [Resigned, apologetic] You and your son can go now, Mrs. Parr. I'm sorry for the trouble.
[Helen and Dash leave; once his back is turned, Dash grins triumphantly]
Bernie: You're letting him go again?! He's guilty! You can see it on his smug little face! [Throwing a tantrum] Guilty, I say! Guilty! Guilty, guilty!
[Helen closes the door, blotting out his voice]

Helen: Dash, this is the third time this year you've been sent to the office. We need to find a better outlet. A more constructive outlet.
Dash: Maybe I could, if you'd let me go out for sports.
Helen: Honey, you know why we can't do that.
Dash: But I promise I'll slow up! I'll only be the best by a tiny bit!
Helen: Dashiell Robert Parr, you are an incredibly competitive boy. And a bit of a showoff. The last thing you need is temptations.
Dash: You always say, "Do your best," but you don't really mean it. Why can't I do the best that I can do?
Helen: Right now, honey, the world just wants us to fit in, and to fit in, we just gotta be like everybody else.
Dash: Dad always said our powers were nothing to be ashamed of. Our powers made us special.
Helen: Everyone's special, Dash.
Dash [sullenly]: Which is another way of saying no one is.

Helen: Dash got sent to the office again.
Bob [distracted]: Good, good.
Helen: No, Bob, that's bad.
Bob: What?
Helen [slowly]: Dash got sent to the office again.
Bob: What?! What for?!
Dash: Nothing.
Helen: He put a tack on the teacher's chair-during class.
Dash: Nobody saw me. You could barely even see it on the tape.
Bob: They had a tape, and you still got away with it? Whoa! You must've been booking! How fast do you think you were going?
Dash: [jumps three times in chair]
Helen: Bob, we are not encouraging this!

[Bob Parr and Lucius Best, in ski masks, are rescuing people from a burning building.]
Bob: Can't you put this out?
Lucius: I can't lay down a layer thick enough. It's evaporating too fast!
Bob: Well, what's that mean?!
Lucius: It means it's hot, and I'm dehydrated, Bob!
Bob: You're out of ice?! You can't run out of ice! I thought you could use the water in the air!
Lucius: There is no water in this air! What's your excuse, run out of muscle?!
Bob: I can't just go smashing through walls! The building's getting weaker by the second, it's gonna come down on top of us!
Lucius: I wanted to go bowling!

[After a shouting match]
Bob: But that's okay, because what's important is that Mommy and I are always a team. We're always united, against, uh, uh, the forces of, uh--
Helen: Pig-headed-ness?
Bob: Uh, I was gonna say "evil."

[Bob Parr's boss feels that he's approving too many insurance claims.]
Mr Huph: I'm not happy, Bob. Not. Happy. Ask me why.
Bob Parr: Okay. Why?
Mr Huph: Why what? Be specific, Bob.
Bob Parr: Why are you unhappy?
Mr Huph: Your customers make me unhappy.
Bob Parr: What, you've gotten complaints?
Mr Huph: Complaints I can handle. What I can't handle is your customers' inexplicable knowledge of lnsuricare's inner workings! These people are experts! Experts, Bob! Exploiting every loophole, dodging every obstacle! They're penetrating the bureaucracy!
Bob Parr: Did I do something illegal?
Mr. Huph: [reluctantly] No.
Bob Parr: Are you saying we shouldn't help our customers?
Mr. Huph: The law requires that I answer no.
Bob Parr: We're supposed to help people.
Mr. Huph: We're supposed to help our people! Starting with our stockholders, Bob! Who's helping them out, huh?! [sighs, regaining control] You know, Bob, a company--
Bob Parr: --is like an enormous clock.
Mr. Huph: --is like an enormous cl--Yes! Precisely! It only works if all the little cogs mesh together! Now, a clock needs to be cleaned, well-lubricated, and wound tight. The best clocks have jewel movements, cogs that fit, cooperate by design. [chuckles] Forgive me if I'm being metaphorical, Bob. You know what I mean by cooperative cogs? [Bob sees man being mugged out of window] Bob? Bob? [Grabs Bob by the chin] Look at me when I'm talking to you, Parr!
Bob Parr: That man out there. He needs help!
Mr. Huph: Do not change the subject! We are discussing your actions!
Bob Parr: He is getting mugged!
Mr. Huph: Well, let's hope we don't cover him!
Bob Parr: I'll be right back. [Starts to leave]
Mr. Huph: Stop right now, or you're fired! [Bob stops] Close the door. [Bob hesitantly closes door] Get over here. [Bob releases his hand from the now-crushed door knob, and stands before Mr. Huph] Now. I'm not happy, Bob. Not happy. [Sees the mugger run off]
Bob Parr: [Stirnley through his teeth] He got away.
Mr. Huph: Good thing, too. You were this close to losing your j--aaagh!
[Bob strangles Mr. Huph and throws him through four offices, also breaking half of the metal Insuricare logo. Everyone stares at him, astonished, through the holes in the walls.]
Bob Parr: Uh-oh.

Bob Parr: What are you waiting for?
Boy on tricycle: I don't know, something amazing, I guess.
Bob Parr: Me too, kid.

Mirage: I've got to warn you, it's a learning robot. Every moment you spend fighting it only increases its knowledge of how to beat you.
Mr. Incredible: Shut it down, do it quickly, don't destroy it.
Mirage: And don't die.
Mr. Incredible: Great. Thanks.

Edna: No capes.
Bob: Isn't that my decision?
Edna: Do you remember Thunderhead? Tall, storm powers? Nice man, good with kids.
Bob: Listen, E--
Edna: November 15th of '58! All was well, another day saved, when his cape snagged on a missile.
Bob: [chuckles] Thunderhead was not the brightest bulb —
Edna: Stratogale! April 23rd, '57! Cape caught in a jet turbine!
Bob: E, you can't generalize about--
Edna: [rapidfire] Metaman: express elevator! Dynaguy: snag on takeoff! Splashdown: sucked into a vortex! No capes!! [calmer] Now do not worry, your new suit will be ready before your next assignment.
Bob: You know I'm retired from hero work.
Edna: As am I, Robert, yet here we are.

Helen: There's plenty of leftovers you can reheat, make sure Dash does his homework, and both of you get to bed on time. I should be back tonight, late, you can be in charge that long, can't you?
Violet: Yeah, but why am I in charge, again?
Helen: Nothing. Just a little trouble with Daddy.
Violet: You mean Dad's in trouble, or Dad is the trouble?
Helen: I mean he's either in trouble, or he's going to be.

[Helen emerges from her plane's restroom after changing into her superhero costume, and tosses her bag onto a supposedly empty seat. It lands on an invisible Violet.]
Violet: Ow!
Helen: [furious] Violet?!
Violet: [becomes visible] It's not my fault! Dash ran away and I knew I'd get blamed for it...
Dash: [pops up] THAT'S NOT TRUE!
Helen: Dash?!
Violet: [over Dash] ... And I thought he'd try to sneak on the plane so I came in...
Dash: [over Violet] You said, "Something's up with Mom, we have to find out what!"
Violet: ... And then you closed the doors before I could find him...
Dash: ... It was YOUR idea, YOUR idea!...
Violet: ... AND IT'S NOT MY FAULT!
Dash: ...100%, all-yours, all-the-time IDEA!
Helen: Wait a minute, wait a minute - you left Jack-Jack alone?!
Violet: [sarcastic] Yes Mom, I'm completely stupid. Of course we got a sitter!...
Dash: [over Violet] No, we got someone, Mom! Somebody great! We wouldn't do that!
Violet: [over Dash] Do you think I'm totally irresponsible?! Thanks a lot!

Mr. Incredible: Release me. Now!
Syndrome: Or what?
Mr. Incredible: I'll crush her.
Syndrome: That sounds a little dark for you. Eh, go ahead.
Mr. Incredible: It'll be easy, like breaking a toothpick.
Syndrome: Heh, show me. [Bob eventually lets go] I knew you couldn't do it. Even when you have nothing to lose. You are weak! And I've outgrown you!

Helen: I think your father is in trouble.
Violet: In case you didn't notice, Mom, we're not doing so hot either.
Helen: I'm going to look for him. And that means you're in charge until I get back, Violet.
Dash: What?!
Violet: You heard her.
Helen: [hands them masks] Put these on. Your identity is your most valuable possession. Protect it. And if anything goes wrong, use your powers.
Violet: But you said never to use--
Helen: I know what I said! [sighs] Remember the bad guys on those shows you used to watch on Saturday mornings? Well, these guys are not like those guys. They won't exercise restraint because you're children. They will kill you if they get the chance. Do not give them that chance.
Violet: Mom?
Helen: Vi, I'm counting on you.
Violet: There's something I--
Helen: I'm counting on you. Be strong. Dash, if anything goes wrong, I want you to run as fast as you can.
Dash [excited]: As fast as I can?!
Helen: As fast as you can. Stay hidden. Keep each other safe. I'll be back by morning. [hugs them both and runs off]

Violet: What do you think is going on around here? You think we're on vacation or something? Mom and Dad's lives could be in jeopardy! Or worse... their marriage!
Dash: Their marriage?! So, the bad guys are trying to wreck Mom and Dad's marriage.
Violet: Oh, forget it. You're so immature.

[Violet creates a force-field "bubble" protecting herself and Dash from gunfire.]
Dash: How are you doing that?!
Violet: I don't know!
Dash: Whatever you do, don't stop!

Lucius: Honey?
Honey: What?
Lucious: Where's my super-suit?
Honey: What?!
Lucius: Where is my super-suit?!
Honey: I, uh, put it away!
[Helicopter crashes]
Lucius: Where?!
Honey: Why do you need to know?!
[Lucius runs through the house apartment looking for his suit.]
Lucius: I need it!
Honey: Nuh-uh! Don't you think about runnin' off and doin' no darin'-do! We've been plannin' this dinner for two months!
Lucius: The public is in danger!
Honey: My evening's in danger!
Lucius: You tell me where my suit is, woman! We are talking about the greater good!
Honey: "Greater good"?! I am your wife! I'm the greatest good you are ever gonna get!

Dash: Are we there yet?
Bob: We'll get there when we get there!

Helen: Great. Now our kids are in danger. I was afraid this would happen.
Bob: Well, if you thought there was going to be danger, why'd you bring them?
Helen: I didn't bring them! They stowed away! And I don't think you're striking the proper tone here!

Bob: Wait here and stay hidden. I'm going in. [To fight the Omnidroid]
Helen: While what, I watch helplessly from the sidelines? I don't think so.
Bob: I'm asking you to wait with the kids.
Helen: And I'm telling you, not a chance! You're my husband, I'm with you. "For better or worse."
Bob: I have to do this alone.
Helen: What is this to you? Playtime?
Bob: No.
Helen: So you can be Mr. Incredible again?
Bob: No!
Helen: Then what?
Bob: I'm not...I'm not strong enough.
Helen: "Strong enough", and this will make you stronger?
Bob: Yes. No!
Helen: That's what this is, some sort of workout?!
Bob: [shakes her violently] I can't lose you again!! [pause] I can't, not again. I'm not strong enough.
Helen: [Kisses him passionately] If we work together, you won't have to be.
Bob: I don't know what will happen.
Helen: Hey, we're superheroes. What could happen?
[The Omnidroid attacks them]

Violet: [referring to a supersuit that Dash grabbed from Helen] What makes you think it's special?
Dash: I don't know, but why'd Mom try to hide it?

Jack-Jack Attack

short feature with The Incredibles DVD
[Last-minute babysitter Kari turns to Jack-Jack in his highchair.]
Kari: [in baby talk] Now who's ready for some neurological stimulation?

[Syndrome, in costume, arrives at the Parr home.]
Syndrome: Is this the Parr residence?
Kari: [Manically] Yes! I'm Kari, the babysitter!!
Syndrome: Well... hello, Kari.
Kari: You're my replacement, I'm so glad you've come! What does the "S" stand for?
Syndrome: For… s-s-s… sitter! Yeah, sitter. Heh. Originally, I was gonna have initials for "baby sitter", but then I would have been going around wearing a big "B.S.", and [laughing] you understand why I couldn't go with that.
[Cut to Agent Dicker's interrogation of Kari.]
Dicker: And you believed him.
Kari: The baby was exploding! You even seen an exploding baby before, Mr. Dicker?! What's that?
Dicker: Did you tell anybody about this? Your parents?
Kari: Oh, they thought I was being funny. But you believe me, don't you, Mr. Dicker?
Dicker: Sure do, kid.
