Vitruvius Quotes in The Lego Movie (2014)
[to Lord Business]
Vitruvius: One day, a talented lass or fellow, a special one with face of yellow, will make the Piece of Resistance found from it's hiding refuge underground, and with a noble army at the helm, this Master Builder will thwart the Kragle and save the realm, and be the greatest, most interesting, most important person of all times. All this is true because it rhymes.
Vitruvius: We are entering your mind...
Vitruvius: To prove that you have the unlocked potential to be a Master Builder.
[Vitruvius and Wyldstyle make chanting noises around Emmet, followed by a big flash of light]
Emmet: [floating in space] Whoa, are we inside my brain right now? It's big. I must be smart.
Vitruvius: I'm not hearing a whole lot of activity in here.
Lucy: I don't think he's ever had an original thought... in his life.
Emmet: [chuckles] That's not true. For instance, one time I wanted a bunch of my friends over to watch TV, not unlike this TV that just showed up magically. And not everybody can fit on my one couch, and I thought to myself, well, what if there's such a thing as a bunkbed but as a couch? Introducing the double decker couch! So everyone could watch TV together and be buddies!
Lucy: That's literally the dumbest thing I ever heard.
Vitruvius: Please, Wyldstyle, let me handle this. That idea is just the worst.
Vitruvius: My fellow Master Builders. Including but not limited to Robin Hood, Mermaid Lady, Gandalf, Swamp Creature, 1980s Something Space Guy...
Vitruvius: ...The 2002 NBA All Stars and Wonder Woman. You have traveled far to be here for a moment of great import. We have learned that Lord Business plans to unleash a fully-weaponized Kragle on Taco Tuesday to end the world as we know it.
[the crowd gets restless]
Vitruvius: Please calm yourselves Green Ninja, Milhouse, Nice Vampire, Michelangelo, Michelangelo, and Cleopatra. There is yet one hope. The Special has arisen.
Gandalf: Have the young man step forward.
Vitruvius: As you wish, Dubbledore.
Gandalf: I'm Gandalf!
Dumbledore: It's pronounced Dumbledore.
Dumbledore: No, Dumbledore.
Vitruvius: I thought you said Dubbledore.
Vitruvius: Ah, we gotta write all that down 'cause I'm not gonna remember any of it, but here we go. The Special will now give an eloquent speech.
Vitruvius: Go ahead man, you got this.
Vitruvius: He's coming, cover your butts.
Emmet: Who said that?
Vitruvius: I did. I am Ghost Vitruvius. Oooooh. Emmet, you didn't let me finish earlier because I died. The reason I made up the prophecy was because I knew that whoever found the piece could become the special. Because the only thing anyone needs to be special is to believe that you can be. I know that sounds like a cat poster but it's true. Look at what you did when you believed you were special. You just need to believe it some more.
Emmet: But how could I just decide to believe that I'm special when I'm not?
Vitruvius: Because the world depends on it. Ooooohh.
Vitruvius: I liked Emmett before it was cool.
Vitruvius: Are you ready?
Emmet: Yes, I am, I think.
Vitruvius: Emmet, you had a vision.
Emmet: I did?
Vitruvius: MasterBuilders spend years training themselves to clear their minds enough to have even a fleeting glimpse of The Man Upstairs and yet, your mind is already so prodigiously empty that there is nothing in it to clear away in the first place. With proper training you could become a great MasterBuilder.
Vitruvius: My sweet Emmet, come closer. You must know something about the prophecy.
Emmet: I know. I'm doing my best but... I don't-I don't.
Vitruvius: The prophecy... I made it up.
Vitruvius: I made it up. It's not true.
Emmet: But that means I'm just... I'm not the special?
Vitruvius: You must listen. What I'm about to tell you will change the course of history...
[pause then Vitruvius is dead]
Vitruvius: These mechanical birds will get our message out. They will go to an internet cafe and e-mail the remaining Master Builders, who will meet us in the secret realm of Cloud Cuckoo Land.
[haphazardly throws the birds out of the window]
Emmet: [to Metablbeard] Who are you?
Metalbeard: The name be Metalbeard. And I'll tell you my tale of woe.
Vitruvius: Oh, great, here we go again.
