Oh brother. taglines

Gru edit

  • There's always a blind choad.
  • What, twin brother?
  • Get ready, Bratt! You're about to be blasted back to the 80s!
  • No! Kyle, stop! Kyle let go!

Dru edit

  • Face it, Gru. Villainy is in your blood!
  • ["hugging" Gru while jumping up and down] Oh, I love this guy! Look at him! But hair would make you better. [lightly punches Gru all over as Gru tries to stop him] Look at his face! Oh, he's so mad! [does an impression of Gru's face]

Bratt edit

  • [repeated line] I've been a bad boy!
  • This isn't over, Gru! You hear me? This is not over!
  • Gum one, gum all!
  • Well, now that I've got the diamond, it's payback time. Oh, it's too bad Gru won't be around to try and stop me. Oh, wait! No, it's not! I hate that tweeb! And you, Hollywood! This time, I'm canceling you! And all the losers who rejected me! [laughs evilly]

Dialogue edit

[first lines]
TV Show Host: The year was 1985, and #1 hit show on TV was…
Young Balthazar Bratt: Evil Bratt!
TV Show Host: The show starred young Balthazar Bratt as a child, prodigy and criminal mastermind bent on world domination!
Military Officer: There he is! Get him!
[Bratt kicks the military officials]
Young Bratt: I've been a bad boy!
TV Show Host: Bratt was the biggest child actor of the 1980s, striking a chord with audiences all over the world.
[Two Inuit kids cheer and high-five with Bratt dolls. Bratt, now a pre-teen, lands]
Military Officer: There he is! Get him!
TV Show Host: [as Bratt kicks the military officials] But it all came to an end in Season 3, when…
[Bratt turns to the viewers revealing that his face is covered in pimples]
Teenage Bratt: I've been a bad boy!
TV Show Host: The young star experienced an unexpected growth spurt.
Teenage Bratt: Boy? Boy?! AGGGGHHH!
[As Bratt groans in disgust, the word "CANCELED" appears]
TV Show Host: The show was canceled. Hollywood rejected him, and Bratt quickly plunged into a downward spiral, starting to actually believe he was the character he played on TV.
Teen Bratt: What are you looking at?
[Bratt shakes the camera, then punches the screen, shattering it into small pieces]
TV Show Host: Leading us all to wonder… where is he now?
[Bratt runs away, shoving people as he laughs meanly. A few years later, a ship is seen through binoculars. Bratt, now an adult, chuckles evilly as he chews gum]
Bratt: You know what, Clive? Playing a villain on TV was fun, but being one in real life is even better! Heist music!
Clive: Here it comes!
[Clive inserts a tape into the boat's radio, which plays Berlin's "Take My Breath Away"]
Bratt: D'oh! What?! Clive, what are you doing?! How is that heist music?!
Clive: Sorry! My bad.
[Clive ejects the tape, flips it over, then inserts it back, now playing Michael Jackson's "Bad"]

A.V.L. Tech: Sir, the ship has been boarded by some kinda of... monster!
Silas Ramsbottom: Wait, that’s not a monster.
[Silas zooms in on the boat, revealing Bratt]
Silas: That’s a man wearing shoulder pads! There’s only one supervillain whose fashion sense is quite that dated, Balthazar Bratt. Blast it, the Dumont Diamond is on that ship! I want every agent in the area on the scene immediately!

Lucy: We're already here! Agents Grucy are closing fast!
Gru: Yeah! Wait. What? What did you call us?
Lucy: Grucy! You know, Gru and Lucy mushed together. Try it.
Gru: Oh, I like it, but not a lot. I don't like it.

Bratt: Hello, Gru! How's your transition coming? You know, from world's worst villain to world's worst agent?
[Bratt aims a gun at Gru]
Gru: Oh, that's hilarious, you should be on TV.
[Gru smacks the gun off Bratt's hand]
Gru: Oh, that's right. You were! [pulls out his freeze ray] But then you got canceled!
[Bratt smacks the freeze ray off Gru's hand and pulls out a larger gun as he laughs. Gru smacks the gun away and then pulls out… a small water pistol?]
Gru: What about that? Huh? Ugh! Girls!
[Gru throws the water pistol at Bratt's face]

Bratt: Gru! Did you actually think I was unconscious?
Gru: What?
Bratt: It's called acting, hoser. And clearly, I've still got it!
[Bratt plays the intro to Van Halen's "Jump" on his sonic keytar, blowing Gru off of the ship]
Bratt: I've been a bad boy! [laughs]
Alpha Team Leader: Freeze! Don't move!
Bratt: Son of a Betamax!

Silas: Thank you for coming in such short notice. It is with great sadness that I must inform that as of today, I am retiring as head of the AVL.
[All the agents gasp in shock]
Lucy: Oh, no!
Silas: Your new leader is coming directly from head office, effective immediately. She is the very gifted. [under his breath] The very ambitious, Miss Valerie da Vinci. As I look out over all your faces, I am fluttered with so many memories.
Valerie da Vinci: Oh, boy, this is a snooze fest! Blah, blah, blah, we understand, you're old, look, you're fat, you're done.
Silas: Ooh! [grunts] Let me breathe in! [gets shoved into the ejection hole]
Valerie: Whew, broke a little sweat there. [chuckles] First order of business. [clears throat] Which one of you losers is Agent Gru?!

[The Minions are cheering because they want to go back to villainy]
Gru: Guys! Shh, shh, shh, shh! I don't think you heard me right! No, no, no, no, no, no, no! This does not mean that we're going back to being villains!
Minions: Awww...
Stuart: Ah? Pinyoof la komiko!
Gru: Okay, alright, I get it. Look, I know it's been a little tough lately, especially with Dr. Nefario accidentally freezing himself in carbonite.
[Dr. Nefario is completely frozen while three Minions try to break him out]
Gru: But our life of crime is over! Ugh. Mel! Mel, you're with me on this, right?
Mel: Ugh! Looka!
[Mel clicks a button and starts a slideshow; each slide shows Gru doing some villainous things and chores while the Minions cheer and boo]
Mel: MINIONS, NO LE PINYOOF! [the Minions all rouse up] Pinyoof, pinyoof, pinyoof!
Gru: Guys, listen to me! Read my lips! Leso me lipo! Pomo doro la comquit!
[The Minions laugh]
Gru: What? What did I say? [pulls out a Minions language book] It's not "comquit"? Ah, okay. Pomo doro la kumquat!
Mel: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Pulisso kumquit parado. Lury para yo.
Gru: Don't take that tone with me! We're not going back to villainy!
Mel: Uh? No pirany?
Gru: Yes! And I don't want to hear another word about it! [the Minions all blow raspberries at Gru] Look! If you guys don't stop right now, there will be consequences!
Mel: Eh? Poro es me moro!
Gru: Hey, don't say anything you're going to regret!
Mel: Ooh, no re paros! El es quita! Choperu! [he and the other Minions leave]
Gru: What, you quit? You're serious? Come on! [Bob angrily stomps on Mel's Gru hat and leaves with all the Minions... except for Dave and Jerry, who just walked into the room, unaware of what just happened] Dave! Jerry! Good news, guys! You've just been promoted! You're in charge now! Huh? Not bad!
Dave and Jerry: [whoop excitingly as they tear off their Hawaiian costumes and begin rubbing their butts together] ROOBA, ROOBA, ROOBA, ROOBA!
Gru: Oh... GEESH!

[In Paris, a luxury car stops outside the museum. A guard opens the door and a giant chubby man squeezes out of the car. The doors burst open as the man enters]
Museum Director: Monsieur Pompeux!
[The museum director kisses Pompeux's cheeks]
Museum Director: So, what do we owe the presence of the world's foremost gem expert?
Pompeux: The chief of police sent me. He was censored that during the recent heist attempt, the Dumont Diamond was replaced with a phony.
[The museum director and his friends gasp. Pompeux enters a room where the Dumont Diamond sits on a pedestal surrounded by lasers. Pompeux snaps his fingers causing the lasers to turn off, examines the diamond with a jewelers loop, sniffs it with his nose, then licks it with his tongue.]
Pompeux: Ooh-la-la! You have been duped!
Museum Director: What?! We have?
Pompeux: Yes. By me!
[Darts fire from the loop, knocking out 5 guards]
Museum Director: What? What is…?
[A rubber mask of Pompeux's head gets tossed into the museum director's face. He removes it then gasps]
Museum Director: Oh, no! Help!
[Just as the museum director runs, a 6th dart strikes his butt and he collapses on the floor. The costume of Pomepeux's body starts to shake as Bratt gets out of it.]
Bratt: [laughing evilly]
[Bratt hits play on a portable cassette player which Take on Me by A-ha plays. A grappling hook fires from the player, crashing through a glass dome in the ceiling, then pops into a disco ball. Bratt attaches the player to his belt, then laughs as he grabs the diamond.]
Bratt: I've been a bad boy! Or should I say, Je suis un mauvais garçon!
[Bratt laughs as he disappears]

Gru: [runs over to Agnes after she sells the fluffy unicorn] Agnes, what are you doing? You sold your unicorn?
Agnes: Well, I just wanted to help since you don't have a job. I got 2 whole dollars for it!
Dave and Jerry: Aww...

Gru: Wait, what? It's true? You never told me I had a brother, and you told me that Dad died of disappointment when I was born!
Gru's Mom: Yeah. That was the agreement.
Gru: "Agreement"? What are you talking about?
Gru's Mom: [sighs] Shortly after you and your brother were born, your father and I divorced. We each took one son to raise on our own and promised never to see each other again. Obviously, I got second pick.
Gru: I have a brother.

Dru: [notices Lucy and dances with her] You must be the beautiful wife.
Lucy: Beautiful? Oh! [Dru twirls her around and catches her] [laughs] Stop it! [tugs Dru's scarf] Sweet talker.
Dru: [then wraps his arm around Gru, with the other still holding Lucy] How is my brother finding a wife like you when he is so bald? [rubs Gru's head] I'm joking!

Dru: So, brother, how are things going for you career-wise?
Gru: [laughs nervously] Great. So, so great... crushing it...

[Edith and Agnes are at the Tipsy Unicorn tavern. Agnes discovers a real unicorn's horn]
Scar-Faced Man: I'm telling you I saw one once. With my own EYE! "[On 'eye', he bends down toward Agnes' face]
Agnes: [waving her arms to halt the man] Wait, wait, wait. You saw a for-real live UNICORN?! What did it look like? What do you think?[gasps] Did you pet it? Did it smell like candy? Was it… fluffyyyyyyy?!
Scar-Faced Man: It was so fluffy, I though I was going to die!

Lucy: So... what did you guys do today?
Gru and Dru: [lying] Nothing!

Margo: Um...
Lucy: What?
Margo: It's OK to tell them "no" sometimes, too. You know? Moms need to be tough.
Lucy: Right. Tough. I can totally do that! Still figuring out this mom thing. [imitates a pirate captain] Getting my sea legs, matey.
Margo: My mom and dad.

[Dru's doorbell rings. Lucy answers it]
Lucy: Hello? [sees Niko] Oh, hi.
Niko: Hello, mother of Margo. I am Niko. I present you with pig to confirm my engagement to your daughter.
[The pig squeals]
Lucy: [laughs] Hey, what now?
Margo: What's going on? Go on.
Lucy: Uh, remember Little Boots?
Niko: Hello, my schmoopsie-poo. [tries to kiss Margo]
Margo: Whoa! Hey!
Lucy: He seems to think you're engaged. [laughs]
Margo: What? [as Niko kisses her hand] We're not engaged.

[Lucy hears a knock at the door]
Lucy: Ugh, here we go. Niko... [gasps]
[Niko is standing next to an angry woman carrying a baby. It is his mother]
Niko's mother: You... refuse my son's engagement pig?
Lucy: What?
Niko's mother: May you and your daughter die a slow death and be buried with onions!
[She spits at Margo. The baby does the same. Margo gasps in fright and hides behind Lucy, holding her hand. Lucy gets angry]
Lucy: Alright, lady, that's it! Nobody, nobody curses my daughter! You got it? [Margo is surprised by how Lucy is defending her] Because if you mess with Margo, you mess with me! And I promise you, you do not wanna mess with me! Do you understand me?!
Niko's mother: Yes, yes.
Lucy: [calmly] Good. [angrily] Now, get! [Niko's mother takes her son's hand and they hurry off. Lucy then turns to Margo, thinking she's still upset with her] Look, Margo, I think we just need to--
[Margo hugs her tightly. Lucy is startled at first, but hugs her too]

[At the mansion, Gru is about to leave out the door when suddenly he hears banging from the closet]
Gru: Huh?
[Gru opens the closet door and gasps]
Gru: Lucy?
[Gru finds the real Lucy bound and gagged in the closet then removes the gag from her mouth]
Gru: What is...?
Lucy: [breaths] It's Bratt! He took the girls!
Gru: What?! No!
[Through a window, the jet flies off. Gru watches in horror. Dru, drowning his misery after his argument, eats ice cream as Gru and Lucy approach him]
Gru: Dru! Dru!
[Dru turns away from him]
Dru: Go away! I don't wanna talk to you.
Gru: (No, listen!) Bratt has the girls!
[Dru stops eating his ice cream, then gasps in shock. In the sky, Gru flies the rocket jet with Dru and Lucy]
Gru: Listen, brother, about what I just said...
Dru: No, I'm the one.
Gru: I shouldn't have... [sighs] I'm sorry.
Dru: Oh, I'm sorry, too, Gru.

Bratt: [laughing] Hello, Hollywood! [on speaker] I'm back and bigger than ever.
[The girls and Lucky are inside the robot's chest]
Agnes: [shrieking] I'm scared!
Celebrity: Thank you. Thank you so... Oh!
[The celebrity spots the robot as the people flee]
Celebrity: No! No! No, you can’t leave me here! I’m famous!
Bratt: [laughs] Clive, arm the cannons.
[Gum launchers appear on the robot's shoulder pads]
Bratt: Chew on this!
[As gum launches from the launchers, they become bubbles, covering the city. People scream and run around in panic. The robot steps over a woman, who screams]
Edith: Hey, mullet-head, let us outta here!
Bratt: Oh, don't worry, girls, I’ve prepare a front row seat for you.
[Bratt flips a switch, and a panel opens on the robot's chest. The girls scream as they and Lucky slide on the robot's hand. The robot drops the girls and Lucky on the ledge of a tall building. Agnes screams as she hangs on for dear life]
Margo: Agnes!
[Margo and Edith help her up]
Bratt: Once again, I win and Gru loses! Enjoy the show, girls.
[As the robot walks off, the girls gape at the gum. The rocket jet arrives]
Gru: What in the heck?
Lucy: Oh! I hope the girls are OK!
Dru: Bratt! Bratt at 9 o'clock! No, 3 o'clock! He's on the left!
[The robot is nearby]
Dru: [gasps] No, I’ve seen this episode! He’s gonna bubblegum the whole city and send it up into space!
Lucy: [gasps] Hurry!
[Dru yelps]

[After Dru disabled the robot, Gru, regaining consciousness, gapes]
Gru: DRU!!!!
[Gru runs over to the wreckage]
Gru: Hold on! I'm coming!
[Gru looks up to see Bratt]
Bratt: You've ruined everything! And now, it's time to die! Any last words, Gru?
Gru: You know what? I got two words for you. Dance fight!
[Gru starts dancing as "Into the Groove" by Madonna plays]
Bratt: Oh, it is on like Donkey Kong! I'm gonna enjoy this!
[Bratt and Gru start to dance fight]

Bratt: Game over!
[Bratt laughs evilly as he tries to reach for his keytar, causing his evil laugh to fade]
Gru: [holding Bratt's keytar] Is this what you're looking for?
Bratt: No!
[Gru blasts Bratt into the bubblegum playing Dire Straits' Money for Nothing]
Bratt: No!
[Gru drops the keytar and walks off]
Bratt: Curse you, Gru!
[Bratt bumps into an Onions billboard]
Bratt: [last words] Ow! Curse you!

[After Agnes called Lucy "mom"]
Lucy: I'm a mom. I'm a mom!
[Lucy gets excited as she runs off]
