MegamindEdit

  • Here's my day so far: went to jail, lost the girl of my dreams and got my butt kicked pretty good. Still, things could be a lot worse. Oh, that's right... I'm falling to my death. Guess they can't. How did it all come to this, you ask? My end starts at the beginning...the very beginning! [Shows baby Megamind] Yes, that's me. I had a fairly standard childhood. I came from, what you might call, a broken home. Literally broken. I was 8 days old and still living with my parents. How sad is that? Clearly, it was time to move on. [just before a planet is pulled into a black hole, a couple places their child in a rocket ship and make a prophecy of his future that is cut off] I didn't quite hear that last part, but it sounded important. Destined for what? [just as the rocket ship leaves, another planet that gets pulled into the hole sends off their own rocket ship, and the two collide with each other and race to Earth] I set out to find my destiny. Turns out a kid from the Glaupunkt quadrant had the exact same idea. That was the day I met Mr. Goody-Two-Shoes, and our glorious rivalry was born! [they go to Earth. Megamind sees a fancy home] Could this be what I was destined for? A dream life filled with luxury? [Metro Man's ship knocks Megamind's away from the house before he can reach it] Apparently not! Even fate picks its favourties. No big deal. A much different fate awaited me. [Megamind's ship crash-lands into a prison] Luckily, I found a lovely little place to call home, a place that taught me the differences between right and wrong. Mr. Goody-Two-Shoes, on the other hand, had life handed to him on a silver platter, the power of flight, invulnerability, and great hair. But I had something far, far greater: my amazing intellect, and knack for building objects of mayhem. [Young Megamind's invention causes many prisoners to be free, angering the warden] After a few years, and with some time off for good behavior, I was given an opportunity to better myself through learning at a strange place called "shool". It was there that I once again ran into Mr. Goody-Two-Shoes. He had already amassed a gigantic army of soft-headed groupies. He bought their affections with showmanship and extravagant gifts of deliciousness. So, I, too, would make this popp-ed corn and win over those mindless drones. [One day, he tried to do so, but horribly failed] That's when I learned a very hard lesson: good receives all the praise and adulation while evil is sent to quiet time in the corner. So fitting in wasn't really an option. While they were learning the Itsy Bitsy Spider, I learned how to dehydrate animate objects and rehydrate them at will. Somedays, it felt like it was just me and Minion against the world. No matter how hard I tried, I was always the odd man out, the last one picked, the screw-up, the black sheep, the bad boy. Was this my destiny? Wait! Maybe it was. Being bad is the one thing I'm good at. Then it hit me: if I was the bad boy, then I was going to be the baddest boy of them all! I was destined to be a supervillain, and we were destined to be rivals. The die had been cast, and so began an enduring, epic, lifelong career, and I loved it! Our battles quickly got more elaborate. He would win some, I would almost win others. He took the name: Metro Man, defender of Metrocity. I decided to pick something a little more humble: Megamind, incredibly handsome criminal genius and master of all villainy!
  • [to Roxanne, exasperated] Let's stop wasting time and call your boyfriend in tights, shall we?!
  • Warming up? The SUN is WARMING UP?!
  • [about the Defuser warming up] Oh, you've gotta be KIDDING me! Minion, if I live, I will kill you.
  • You might not want to be here in the next 2 minutes, 37 seconds. We're having the walls and ceiling removed...
  • Imagine the most horrible, terrifying, evil thing you can possibly think of... and multiply it... BY SIX!!!
  • Minion, I'm a villain without a hero. A yin with no yang! A bullfighter with no bull to fight! In other words, I have no purpose!
  • [at the Metro Man Museum] I've made a horrible mistake. I didn't mean to destroy you. I mean, I meant to destroy you, but I didn't think it would really work. I'm so tired of running rampant through the streets. What's the point of being bad when there's no good to try and stop you? I had so many evil plans in the works - the illiteracy beam, typhoon-cheese, robo-sheep... [starting to cry] Battles we will now never have. You know, I never had the chance to say goodbye. So it's good that we have this time now...you know, before I destroy the place. Nothing personal, it just brings back too many painful memories.
  • OK, Minion! You were right! I was... less right!
  • [after waiting hours for Titan to show up] This is EMBARASSING! Wholly inconsiderate, boneheaded, irresponsible, rude, unprofessional... That's what this is! Would Metro Man have kept me waiting? Of course not, he was a pro!
  • [during the final battle, we return to the opening sequence where we was falling to his death. narrating] So, this is how it ends. Normally, I'd chalk this up to my last glorious failure. [Megamind sees a fountain and activates the Defuser Gun] But not today! What can I say? Old habits die hard.
  • [mispronouncing "hello"] Ollo.
  • [narrating] Funny, I guess destiny is not the path given to us, but the path we choose for ourselves. I have to admit, being good has its perks. [The mayor pronounces Megamind defender of Metro City] You know, I like the sound of that.

Metro ManEdit

  • All right, put your hands in the air!
  • Yeah, Metro City!
  • Although getting a whole museum is super-cool, is super-cool, you want to know what the greatest honour you've given me is? Do you really want to know? Really? I'll tell you. The greatest honour you've given me is letting me serve you, the helpless people of Metro City.
  • I started to realise, despite all my powers, each and every citizen of Metro City had something I didn't: a choice. Ever since I can remember, I've always had to be what this city wanted me to be. What about what I wanted to do? Then it suddenly hit me - I do have a choice! I can be whatever I wanna be! No one said that this hero thing had to be a lifetime gig. But you can't just quit either. That's when I got the brilliant idea... to fake my death.
  • [to Megamind] You know, little buddy, there's a yin for every yang. If there's bad, good will rise up against it. It's taken me a long time to find my calling. Now it's about time you find yours.
  • [to Megamind] Way to go, little buddy. I knew you had it in you...

Roxanne RitchiEdit

  • [Megamind, who is disguised as Bernard, starts to cry] Bernard... I-I didn't know you... had... feelings. Are you okay?
  • [looking around, while being held captive in Megamind's lair] Is there some kind of nerdy super-villain website where you get Tesla coils and blinky dials?
  • [her eulogy for Metro Man] He was always there for us. Dependable. Perhaps we took him for granted. You know, maybe, we never really know how good we have it until it's gone. We miss you, Metro Man. I miss you. And I have just one question for Megamind: Are you happy now? This is Roxanne Ritchi, reporting from a city without a hero.
  • Megamind... I don't even know if you're listening, but if you are, you can't give up! The Megamind I know would never run from a fight, even if he knew he had no chance of winning! It was your best quality. You need to be that guy right now! This city needs you! I need you.

Hal Stewart/TightenEdit

  • [after Megamind breaks into his apartment room] Is this a robbery? Because the lady across the hall has way better stuff than me!
  • [about teaming up with Megamind] I even drew up some new costume designs, see? [holds out pieces of paper] You'd be the brain so you'd get a little brain, wearing glasses on your costume, or something. And since I'm the cool one, I'd have, like, two tanks swordfighting...
  • [beating up Megamind] This is for stealing my girlfriend! This one's for Space-Dad making a fool out of me! And Megamind, this one's for Space-Stepmom! YOU LIED TO HER!
  • Consider yourselves under new management!
  • You should stop comparing me to Metro Man!!!
  • Hey, Metro-losers. This is Metro Tower. They say it's supposed to be a symbol of our city's strength, but for me, it's a reminder of the day this woman ferociously ripped out my heart! And I hate reminders!
  • You're so naive, Roxy. You see the good in everyone, even when it's not there. You're living a fantasy. There is no Easter Bunny, there is no Tooth Fairy, and there is no Queen of England! This is the real world, and you need to wake up!
  • [last lines] I'm bad! I'm bad! That's right. Yeah!

MinionEdit

  • I'm calling it: The Black Mambaaaaaaaa!

DialogueEdit

Megamind: Any chance you could give me the time? I don't want to be late for the opening of the Metro Man Museum.
Warden: [looks down at watch] Oh no. Looks like you're gonna miss it, by several thousand years.

Roxanne: Happy Metro Man Day, Metro City. It's a beautiful day in beautiful downtown, where we're here to honour a beautiful man, Metro Man. His heart is an ocean that's inside a bigger ocean. For years, he's been watching us with his super-vision, saving us with his super-strength and caring for us with his super-heart. Now it's our turn to give something back. This is Roxanne Ritchi, reporting live from the dedication of the Metro Man Museum. [gestures to Hal to stop filming]
Hal: Wow. OK, the stuff they make you read on-air, that's un-freaking-believable. It's crazy.
Roxanne: I wrote that piece myself, Hal.
Hal: What I was trying to say was, I can't believe that in our modern society, they let, like, actual art get onto the news.
Roxanne: Nice save, Hal.

Megamind: [on a video screen; threatening Metro Man] This is a day you and Metrocity shall not soon forget!
Metro Man: It's pronounced METRO CITY!
Megamind: Oh, potato, tomato, potato, tomato...
Metro Man: We all know how this ends: with YOU behind bars!
Megamind: [sarcastically] Oh, I'm shaking in my custom, baby seal leather boots! [serious again] YOU will leave Metrocity! Or this will be the last you ever hear of... Roxanne Ritchi! [presses a button to show a captive Roxanne on a seperate screen] Huh?
Metro Man: [whispers dramatically] Roxanne! Don't panic, Roxy... I'm on my way!
Roxanne: Yeah, I'm not panicking.
Megamind: [smirking] In order to stop me, you need to find me first, Metro Man!
Roxanne: We're at the abandoned observatory!
Metro Man: Ah-ha!
Megamind: No, we're not! Don't listen to her! She's crazy!

Roxanne: You're SOOO predictable!
Megamind: Predictable? Predictable? Oh, you call THIS predictable?! [pulls a lever that opens up an alligator pool beneath Roxanne]
Roxanne: Alligators, yes. Mm-hmm. I was thinking about it on the way over...
Megamind: [pulls another lever that reveals a hidden gun] What's this? Boom! In your face!
Roxanne: Cliché!
Megamind: No! Look! Watch! [brings down a gauntlet of blades]
Roxanne: Juvenile!
Megamind: Shock and awe! [brings up a chainsaw]
Roxanne: Tacky!
Megamind: Oh, it's so scary! [unleashes a cycle of spiked boots]
Roxanne: Seen it!
Megamind: [frantic] What's this one do?! [unleashes a flamethrower]
Roxanne: Garish! [Megamind breaks down] Okay, the spider's new.
Megamind: Spider? [He sees a spider hanging in front of Roxanne. Minion just shrugs.] Uh... Yes! The... the spiiiider. Even the smallest bite from... "arachnus deathicus"... will instantly paralyze... [Roxanne blows the spider into Megamind's eye.] Aargh! Get it off!
Roxanne: Give it up, Megamind. Your plans never work!

Hal: [to Roxanne] I'd be watching you, like a dingo watches a human baby...
Roxanne: Mmm.
Hal: Okay, that sounded a little weird.
Roxanne: A little bit.

Megamind: OK. There's no way she'll find the secret entrance.
Roxanne: [gasps excitedly] There's a doormat here that says "Secret Entrance"!
Megamind: [turns around angrily] Minion!
Minion: I kept forgetting where it was.

[Megamind extracts Metro Man's DNA, hoping to create a new superhero to fight]
Minion: Sir, I think this is a bad idea...
Megamind: Yes! It's a very wickedly bad idea for the greater good of bad!
Minion: But I'm saying it's the kind of bad that-- Okay, you might think it's good from your bad perception, but from a good perception... it's just plain bad.
Megamind: Oh, you don't know what's good for bad!

Hal: What's going on?
Megamind: [disguised as Jor-El] Easy, my child.
Hal: Who are you?
Megamind: I sent you to this planet to teach you about justice, honor, and nobility. I am your father.
Hal: So, you're, like, my Space Dad?
Megamind: Yeah. I'm like your Space Dad.
Hal: [sees Minion, who is dressed in mother clothes] And, you are what?
Minion: I'm your Space Stepmom. I've had some work done recently.
Hal: Is this some kind of dream?
Megamind: This is a dream come true. You've been blessed with unfathomable powers.
Hal: What kind of power?
Megamind: Unfathomable. It's, uh, without fathom.
Hal: Whoa.

Giant Megamind head: You dare challenge Megamind?!
Tighten: This town isn't big enough for two supervillains!
Giant Megamind head: Oh, you're a villain all right! Just not a SUPER one!
Tighten: Oh yeah? What's the difference?
Megamind: PRESENTATION!
[Cue fantastic over-the-top lightshow]

Tighten: This is the last time you make a fool out of me!
Megamind: I made you a hero! You did the "fool" thing all by yourself!

Megamind: Over here, old friend. In case you haven't noticed, you've fallen right into my trap.
Metroman: You can't trap justice. It's an idea! A belief!
Megamind: Well, even the most heartfelt belief can be corroded over time!
Metroman: Justice is a noncorrosive metal!
Megamind: But metals can be melted by the heat of revahnge!
Metroman: It's "revenge", and it's best served cold!
Megamind: But it could be easily reheated, in the microwave of evil!
Metroman: Well, I think your warranty is about to expire!
Megamind: Maybe I've got an extended warranty!
Metroman: Warranties are invalid if you don't use the product for its intended purpose!
Roxanne: [groans] Girls, girls! You're both pretty! Can I go home now?

Man in crowd: I love you, Metroman!
Metroman: And I love you, random citizen!

Minion: [sniffs Megamind suspiciously] Are you wearing Jean Paul Gaultier's Pour Homme?
Megamind: It's just my natural musk!

Megamind: [gives present as 'space dad'] Hal, I think you're ready for this.
Hal: [pulls out small costume] Do I have a son?
Megamind: No. You make me laugh. It stretches. It's for you.
Hal: Hey, what's the T stand for?
Megamind: Tighten.
Hal: Tighten? What's that supposed to mean?
Megamind: It was the only name I could trademark.
Hal: Oh.
Megamind: Do you have someone special in your life, Hal?
Hal: No, not yet. But, there's this really, really good-looking one I've got my eye on currently.
Megamind: That's very good. Romance is very inspiring.
Hal: That's what I hear.
Megamind: All you have to do is save her and she'll be yours.
Minion: Who wants churros?
Megamind: I do!
Hal: I do, yeah.
Megamind: Churros all the way around.
Hal: Thanks, Space Stepmom.
Megamind: On the count of three, unsheathe your churro. One, two, three!
All three: To Titan!
Megamind: Tomorrow, you will fight Megamind, and the city will know your name!

Megamind: [sheepishly] Titan's turned evil.
Roxanne: [sarcastic] Congratulations. Another one of your genius plans has backfired on you.

[Roxanne's walking in the rain after discovering Megamind was Bernard]
Megamind: I can explain! ...What about everything you just said? About judging a book by its cover?
Roxanne: Well, let's take a look at the contents then, shall we? You destroyed Metro Man, you took over the city, and then, you actually got me to care about you! Why are you so evil? Tricking me? What could you possibly hope to gain? [Megamind looks up at her sadly] Wait a minute. I don't believe this. Do you really think that I would ever be with you?
Megamind: [quietly] No...

[After defeating Tighten]
Minion: We've had a lot of adventures together, you and I...
Megamind: Yes, Minion, we have.
Minion: I mean, most of them ended in horrible failure, but we won today, didn't we, sir?
Megamind: Yes, Minion. We did it, thanks to you.
Minion: Code: We're The Good Guys Now.
Megamind: Code: I Guess We Are.
