Mr. Incredible Quotes in The Incredibles (2004)
Mr. Incredible Quotes:
Mr. Incredible: 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 ten minutes!
Syndrome: [watching live news footage of the Omnidroid] Huh? Huh? Oh, come on! You gotta admit, this is cool! Just like a movie: the robot will emerge dramatically, do some damage, throw some screaming people. And just when all hope is lost? Syndrome will save the day! I'll be a bigger hero than you ever were.
Mr. Incredible: You mean you killed off real heroes so that you could *pretend* to be one?
Syndrome: Oh, I'm real. Real enough to defeat *you*! And I did it without your precious gifts, your oh-so-special powers. I'll give them heroics. I'll give them the most spectacular heroics anyone's ever seen! And when I'm old and I've had my fun, I'll sell my inventions so that everyone can be superheroes. *Everyone* can be super! And when everyone's super...
Syndrome: ...*no one* will be.
Mr. Incredible: I was wrong to treat you that way. I'm sorry...
Syndrome: See? Now you respect me, because I'm a threat. That's the way it works. Turns out there are lots of people, whole countries, that want respect, and 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 Syndrome, who dodges it and traps Mr. Incredible with his zero-point energy ray]
Syndrome: Oh, ho ho! You sly dog! You got me monologuing! I can't believe it...
[In the RV, traveling to the mainland]
Dash: Are we there yet?
Mr. Incredible: We get there when we get there!
Mr. Incredible: Bomb Voyage.
Bomb Voyage: Monsieur Incroyable!
[Subtitles: Mr. Incredible...!]
Buddy: And IncrediBoy!
Bomb Voyage: [not French, but with an accent] IncrediBoy?
Buddy: Hey, hey! Aren't you curious about how I get around so fast? See? I have these rocket boots! They're made fr...
Mr. Incredible: [cuts him off] Go home, Buddy.
Mr. Incredible: Now.
Bomb Voyage: Petit mufle va!
[Subtitles: Little oaf...!]
Buddy: Can we talk?
[pulls Mr. Incredible off to the side]
Buddy: You always, always say "Be true to yourself," but you never say which part of yourself to be true to! Well, I 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, who yells in surprise]
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]
Buddy: I can fly! Can you fly?
Mr. Incredible: Fly home, Buddy. I work alone.
Bomb Voyage: Et ton tenue est complètement ridicule!
[Subtitles: And your outfit is totally ridiculous!]
Syndrome: It's finally ready! You know, I went through quite a few supers to make it worthy to fight you, but man, it wasn't good enough! After you trashed the last one, I had to make some major modifications. Sure, it was difficult, but you are worth it. I mean, after all... I am your biggest fan.
Mr. Incredible: [recognizing that last line] Buddy?
Syndrome: My name is not Buddy! And it's not Incrediboy, either. That ship has sailed. All I wanted was to help you. I only wanted to help, and what do you say to me?
Mr. Incredible: [Flashback] Fly home, Buddy. I work alone.
Syndrome: It tore me apart. But I learned an important lesson. You can't count on anyone, especially your heroes.
[Helen's plane is targeted by Syndrome's missiles]
Elastigirl: India-Golf-Niner-Niner transmitting in the blind guard, disengage, repeat, *disengage*.
[she releases anti-missile devices, begins evasive maneuvers]
Elastigirl: Disengage, repeat, *disengage*!
Mr. Incredible: No! Call off the missiles, I'll do anything!
Syndrome: Too late! Fifteen years too late...
Elastigirl: Friendlies, at two-zero miles south-southwest of your position, angels ten, track east, disengage, over! Vi! You have to put a force field around the plane!
Violet: But you said we weren't supposed to use our powers!
Elastigirl: I know what I said! Listen to what I'm saying *now*! Disengage, repeat, *disengage*!
[missiles close in]
Dash: [frightened] Mom?
Elastigirl: *Violet*! Mayday, mayday, India-Golf-Niner-Niner is buddy spiked! Abort, abort, there are children aboard, say again, there are children aboard this plane!
Mr. Incredible: NO!
Elastigirl: [shouts] Put a field around us, *now*!
Violet: [frightened] But I've never done one that big before...!
Elastigirl: Violet, do it NOW! Abort, abort, abort!
[the missiles close in, Violet tries to create a force field but can't]
Elastigirl: Abort abort abort!
[the missiles hit; Helen envelopes the children as the plane explodes around them]
Elastigirl: This is the right hangar, but I don't see any jets.
Mr. Incredible: A jet's not fast enough.
Elastigirl: What's faster than a jet?
Dash: Hey, how about a rocket?
Elastigirl: Great. I can't fly a rocket.
Violet: You don't have to. Use the coordinates from the last launch.
Mr. Incredible: Oh, wait. I bet Syndrome's changed the password by now. How do I get into the computer?
Mirage: [Over PA system] Say please.
Frozone: Just like old times, huh Bob?
Mr. Incredible: [slapping him in the back] Just like old times.
Frozone: Ha-ha, yeah. Hurt then, too. Ow.
Mr. Incredible: I should have told you I was fired, I admit it. But I didn't want you to worry.
Elastigirl: You didn't want me to *worry*? And now we're running for our lives through some godforsaken jungle?
Mr. Incredible: [grinning happily] You keep trying to pick a fight, but I'm still just happy you're alive.
Mr. Incredible: Wait here and stay hidden. I'm going in.
Elastigirl: While what? I watch helplessly from the sidelines? I don't think so.
Mr. Incredible: I'm asking you to wait with the kids.
Elastigirl: And I'm telling you, not a chance. You're my husband, I'm with you - for better or worse.
Mr. Incredible: I have to do this alone.
Elastigirl: What is this to you? Playtime?
Mr. Incredible: No.
Elastigirl: So you can be Mr. Incredible again?
Mr. Incredible: No!
Elastigirl: Then what? What is it?
Mr. Incredible: I'm not...
Elastigirl: Not what?
Mr. Incredible: Not... I'm not strong enough.
Elastigirl: Strong enough? And this will make you stronger?
Mr. Incredible: Yes. No!
Elastigirl: That's what this is? Some sort of work out?
Mr. Incredible: [shouts] I can't lose you again!
Mr. Incredible: I can't. Not again. I'm not s-strong enough.
Elastigirl: [kisses him] If we work together, you won't have to be.
Mr. Incredible: I don't know what will happen...
Elastigirl: Hey, c'mon. We're superheroes. What could happen?
Mr. Incredible: [Everyone is trapped in Syndrome's containment unit] I'm sorry. I've been a lousy father, blind to what I have. So obsessed with being undervalued that I undervalued all of you.
[while Bob is talking, Violet frees herself using her force field]
Dash: Uh, Dad...
Elastigirl: Shh, don't interrupt.
Mr. Incredible: So... caught up in the past that I... *You* are my greatest adventure, and I almost missed it. I swear that if we get out of this safely, I will...
Violet: [At the control panel] Well, I think Dad has made some excellent progress today, but I think it's time we wind down now.
[she frees them by hitting a green button]
Mr. Incredible: [yelling to Helen as she holds up the RV] How ya doin', honey?
Elastigirl: [screaming back] Do I have to answer?
[Mirage releases Mr. Incredible from his restraints and rushes over to him]
Mirage: There isn't much time.
[Mr. Incredible grabs her by the throat]
Mr. Incredible: No, there isn't.
[He stands up and holds her in the air]
Mr. Incredible: In fact, there's no time at all.
Mirage: [choking] Please.
Mr. Incredible: Why are you here? How can you *possibly* bring me lower? What *more* can you take away from me?
Mirage: [choking] Family... survived... the crash. They're here... on the island!
Mr. Incredible: They're alive?
[he drops her, then picks her up and hugs her]
Syndrome: [after the plane is shot down] Oh, you'll get over it. I seem to recall you prefer to..."work alone."
[laughs maniacally; Mr. Incredible tries to catch him, but Mirage pushes Syndrome out of the way and is captured]
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: [chuckles] Show me.
[after a tense few moments, Mr. Incredible lets go of Mirage]
Syndrome: I knew you couldn't do it. Even when you have nothing to lose! You're weak! And I've outgrown you.
Elastigirl: Let go of me! Let go, you lousy, lying, unfaithful creep...
[Bob kisses her]
Mr. Incredible: How could I betray the perfect woman?
Elastigirl: Oh, you're referring to *me* now?
Mirage: The Omnidroid 9000 is a top-secret military fighting robot. Artificial intelligence allows it to solve any problem it's presented with, and, unfortunately...
Mr. Incredible: Let me guess. It became smart enough to wonder why it had to take orders.
Mirage: We lost control, and now it's loose in the jungle, threatening our facility. We've had to evacuate all personnel for their own safety.
Mr. Incredible: How am I going in?
Mirage: The Omnidroid's defenses necessitate an air drop from 5000 feet. Its cloaking devices make it difficult to track, but we're pretty sure it's on the southern half of the island. One more thing. Obviously, it represents a significant investment...
Mr. Incredible: You want me to shut it down without completely destroying it.
Mirage: You are Mr. Incredible.
[Mr. Incredible is loaded into a landing pod]
Mirage: I've got to warn you. It's a learning robot. Every minute 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.
Mr. Incredible: The robot's in the financial district. Which exit do I take?
Elastigirl: Traction Avenue.
Mr. Incredible: That'll take me downtown. I take Seventh, don't I?
Elastigirl: Don't take Seventh!
Mr. Incredible: Great, we missed it!
Elastigirl: You asked me how to get there and I told you. Exit at Traction!
Mr. Incredible: That'll take me downtown!
Elastigirl: It's coming up, get in the right lane! Signal!
Mr. Incredible: We don't exit at Traction!
Elastigirl: YOU'RE GONNA MISS IT!
[Mr. Incredible yanks the wheel over and careens down the exit]
[after their adventure]
Dash: Dad, that was so cool when you threw that car!
Mr. Incredible: Not as cool as you running on water!
Mr. Incredible: Is this on? I mean, can break through walls, I just can't... can't get this on...
Mr. Incredible: [after he's thrown his ex-boss through several walls] I'm fired, aren't I?
Rick Dicker: [sarcastically] Oh, you think?
Elastigirl: Now our kids are in danger?
Mr. Incredible: Well, if you suspected danger, why'd you bring them?
Elastigirl: I didn't bring them! They stowed away! And I don't think you're striking the proper tone here!
[the Incredibles crash/park their RV]
Mr. Incredible: Is everybody okay back there?
Violet: Super duper, Dad.
Dash: Let's do that again!
Mr. Incredible: I've been meaning to ask you. Of all places to settle down, why...
Mirage: A volcano? My employer is atracted to power. As am I. It's a weakness we both share.
Mr. Incredible: Seems a little... unstable.
Mirage: I prefer to think of it as misunderstood.
Mr. Incredible: Aren't we all?
Mr. Incredible: Are you doing anything later?
Elastigirl: I have a previous engagement.
Oliver Sansweet: [Mr. Incredible intercepts him on his way down and his momentum carries them both through the window of the building] Ow! I think you broke something.
Mr. Incredible: Well, with counseling, I think you'll come to forgive me.
Mr. Incredible: No, you're that kid from the fan club. Brophy... Brody... 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...
Buddy: Oh, no, no, you don't have to worry about training me! I know all your moves, your crime-fighting style, favorite catchphrases, everything! I'm your number one fan!
[Mr. Incredible ejects him from the car, and speeds off]
Mr. Incredible: Of course I have a secret identity. I don't know a single superhero who doesn't. Who wants the pressure of being super all the time?
