Helen: Jack-Jack doesn't have any powers.
Edna: No? Well, he'll look fabulous anyway.
Edna: This is a horrible suit, darling. You can't be seen in this. I won't allow it. Fifteen years ago, maybe, but now? Feh!
Bob: Wait, what do you mean? *You* designed it.
Edna: I never look back, darling! It distracts from the now.
Edna: It will be bold! Dramatic!
Bob: Yeah. Something classic, like, like Dynaguy. Oh, he had a great look! Oh, the cape and the boots...
Edna: [throws a wadded ball of paper at Bob's head] No capes!
Bob: Isn't that my decision?
Edna: Do you remember Thunderhead? Tall, storm powers? Nice man, good with kids.
Bob: Listen, E...

Bob: Thunderhead was not the brightest bulb...
Edna: Stratogale! April 23rd, '57! Cape caught in a jet turbine!
Bob: E, you can't generalize about these things...
Edna: Metaman, express elevator! Dynaguy, snagged on takeoff! Splashdown, sucked into a vortex!
Edna: No capes!
Helen: [sobbing] Now I'm losing him! What'll I do? What'll I do?
Edna: What are you talking about?
Helen: [stops crying] Huh?
Edna: [shouts] You are Elastigirl! My God...
[swatting Helen with a newspaper]
Edna: Pull-yourself-together! "What will you do?" Is this a question? You will show him 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!
Edna: And call me when you get back, darling. I enjoy our visits.
Edna: [on Jack-Jack's suit] I cut it a little roomy for the free movement, the fabric is comfortable for sensitive skin...

Bob: Weren't you in the news? Some show in, Prayge... Prague?
Edna: Milan, darling. Milan. Supermodels. Heh! Nothing super about them... spoiled, stupid little stick figures with poofy lips who think only about themselves. Feh! I used to design for *gods*!
Edna: You need a new suit, that much is certain.
Bob: A new suit? Well, where the heck am I gonna get a new suit?
Edna: You can't! It's impossible! I'm far too busy, so ask me now before I can become sane.
Bob: Wait? You want to make me a suit?
Edna: You push too hard, darling! But I accept!
Helen: E, it's great to see you, but I gotta tell you, I've got no idea what you're talking about.
Edna: Yes, words are useless! Gobble-gobble-gobble-gobble-gobble! Too much of it, darling, too much! That is why I show you my work! That is why you are here!

Edna: This is Edna.
Helen: E? This is Helen.
Edna: Helen who?
Helen: Helen Parr. You know...
Helen: [whispers] Elastigirl.
Edna: [booming] DARLING! How are you, it's been such a long time...
Helen: [nearly dropping the phone] Yes, yes, it's been a while. Listen, there's only one person who Bob would trust to patch a super suit, and that's you, E.
Edna: Yes, yes, marvelous suit, darling, much better than those horrible pajamas he used to wear.
Edna: They're all finished, when are you coming to see?
Helen: Look, I'm calling about...
Edna: Don't make me beg, darling, I won't do it, you know!
Helen: [trying to talk over Edna] Beg? Uh, no, I'm, I'm calling about a suit, about, about Bob's suit. I'm calling about Bob's suit!

Bob: You're the best of the best, E
Edna: [Walking up stairs] Yes, I know, dahling.
Edna: 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 can disappear completely as 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.

Peter McGowan: Mercilessly. "Pete."
Edna: TV moves fast.
Edna: You are *all* going to Hell, you know!

Edna: [referring to Sam's backyard sculpture] Like it? What the hell *is* it?
Edna: Why you havin pain's in your chest?
Mel: Because I don't have a job! Because I don't have a suit to wear. Because I'm having a God-damned nervous breakdown and they didn't even leave me with a decent pair of pajamas.
Mel: God... God... God... God...
Edna: Can't you sleep?
Mel: If I could sleep would I be laying here calling God at 2:00 in the morning?

Mel: You have strength, Edna.
Edna: I have ANGER! No strength.
Edna: Come on, Mel. I haven't seen you since breakfast yesterday, and I'm gonna' be fast asleep in 15 minutes. Talk to me. What did you do today?
Mel: [with sarcasm in his tone] I took a *walk*!
Edna: Good. Where?
Mel: From the bedroom into the living room.
Edna: That's all?
Mel: Mm mm. Then I walked back into the bedroom... and once I went into the kitchen for a glass of water. I'd say that was my "high peak" of the day.
Edna: We've been robbed.
Mel: What do you mean, "robbed"?
Edna: Robbed. Robbed! What does "rob" mean? They come in, they take things out. You had 'em, now they got 'em. They used to be yours, now they're theirs. We've been robbed!
Mel: Uh, I don't understand... You mean someone walked in here and robbed us?
Edna: What do you think, they called up and made an appointment? We've been ROBBED!
Edna: If Mel could get out of New York and move to the country somewhere, he'd be one hundred percent better off.
Harry Edison: I agree with you one thousand percent!
Edna: I thought you wanted to do something, help him.
Harry Edison: We *do* want to help him!
Edna: Then help him!
Harry Edison: Not when he's sick. When he's better, we'll help him.
Mel: And as sure as you are sitting here in this room, there is a plot going on in this country today.
Edna: Against whom?
Mel: Against me!
Edna: The whole country?
Mel: Well, not against me personally. But they're after you, our kids, my family, every one of our friends. They're after the cops, hippies, the government, women's lib, the blacks, the fags, the whole military complex and even more.
Edna: Who? You mentioned everybody, there's no one left.
Mel: Oh, baby, there's someone left, all right.
Edna: Mel, who's behind the plot? Is it the kids? The addicts? The Army? The Navy? The Book-of-the-month Club? Who?
Mel: It is the human race. The deterioration of the spirit of Man. Man undermining himself, causing a self-willed, self-imposed, self-evident self-destruction! That's what it is. That's who it is.
Edna: The human race, Mel?
Edna: The human race is responsible for the unemployment?
Mel: You're surprised, aren't you?
Edna: I never would've guessed. All this time, I kept thinking it was somebody else.

Jack Carter: [not amused] Funny.
Edna: What's that gun doing in your room? Suppose I phone the police, told them there's a bloke in my hotel... who's planning to shoot somebody?
Jack Carter: You wouldn't do that.
Edna: How do you know I wouldn't?
Jack Carter: 'Cause I know you wear purple underwear.
Edna: What's that supposed to mean?
Jack Carter: Think about it.
Edna: What are you going to do?
Jack Carter: I'm going to sit in the car and whistle "Rule Britannia".

Edna: You know the name of the game, girls... control. COMPLETE... control.

Sutter: I want this bullshit stopped, and I want it stopped now. You're losing your charisma, Edna. You're too easy. It's time you put on your "fuck you" boots and start kicking!
Edna: My girls won't step out of line anymore, Sutter. I promise you that.
Sutter: OR ELSE!
Edna: Sure, I-I remember you Mr. Maxton, you play the drums the craziest!
