Oh brother. taglines


  • There's always a blind choad.
  • What, twin brother?
  • [about Bratt] Time to blast him back to the 80's!
  • No! Kyle, stop! Kyle let go!


  • 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]


  • [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)


(first lines)
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! [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! [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. [zooms in on the boat, revealing Bratt] That’s a man wearing shoulder pads! There’s only one supervillain whose fashion sense is quite that dated, Balthazar Bratt. Blast it, the Dumount 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? [aims a gun at Gru]
Gru: Oh, that's hilarious! You should be on TV! [smacks the gun off Bratt's hand] 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] Ha, ha!
Gru: [smacks the gun away and then pulls out a small water pistol] Oh-ho! What about that? Huh? Ugh, girls! [throws the water pistol at Bratt's head]

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

Silas Ramsbottom: 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 Ramsbottom: Your new leader is coming directly from head office, effective immediately. She is the very gifted. [under his breath] The very ambitious, Ms. 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 Ramsbottom: Ooh! [grunts] Let me breathe in! [gets shoved into the ejection hole]
Valerie da Vinci: 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: 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. [we see Dr. Nefario completely frozen while three Minions try to break him out] But our life of crime is over! Ugh. Mel! Mel, you're with me on this, right?
Mel: Ugh! Looka! [starts a slideshow] Bueno!
[the slide is Gru riding a tank while carrying enormous sacks of money with a happy face]
Mel: Pinyoof!
[the slide changes to Gru riding a lawnmower with a bored face]
Mel: Bueno!
[the slide changes to Gru avoiding infrared lights while stealing a golden artifact]
Mel: Pinyoof!
[the slide changes to Gru picking up Kyle's poop with a disgusted look on his face]
Mel: Bueno!
[the slide changes to Gru about to detonate a load of dynamite with a gleeful look on his face]
Mel: Pinyoof!
[the slide changes to Gru unclogging a toilet with a plunger and a disgusted face]
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] What? What did I say? [pulls out a Minions language book] It's not "comquit"? Ah, OK. 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!

Gru: [runs over to Agnes after she sells the fluffy unicorn] Agnes, what are you doing? You... 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 okay 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, but nobody curses my daughter! 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! Understand?!
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]

[After returning to the lair from stealing the Dupont Diamond from Bratt, Dru learns of Gru's true motives for said heist, and he is not happy]
Lucy: I'll get the girls and start packing and tell them the good news! ♪ Oh, getting out jobs back! Yeah! ♪ [leaves]
Gru: Yes, yes, go tell the girls. [turns to Dru, who is still scowling and sulking] Dru.
Dru: No, no way! We can't give the diamond back! [tries to yank it out of Gru's hands]
Gru: I have to!
Dru: No, you don't!
Gru: Yes, I do!
Dru: Give it!
Gru: No!
Dru: Give it!
Gru: [swipes the diamond out of Dru's grasp] No!
Dru: GIVE IT! [kicks Gru in the shin]
Gru: Ow! What is wrong with you?
Dru: What is wrong with you?
Gru: You kicked me!
Dru: You-you lied to me!
Gru: Hey, I would've told you the truth, but you're too much of a wimp to handle it! That's it, I'm outta here.
Dru: You have no right to take that! We stole it together!
Gru: Together? [scoffs] You gotta be kidding me! You did nothing but screw up the whole time! I got this in spite of you!
Dru: Oh, yeah?! Well, at least I didn't get fired from my job like a total loser!
Gru: At least I had a job! What have you accomplished that was so great? I'll tell you what - NOTHING! No wonder Dad thought you were such a failure. [Dru gasps as Gru begins to leave]
Gru: THAT'S FINE WITH ME! [leaves]
[Dru growls in anger, and then feels hurt and heartbreak]

"Lucy": Whoo-hoo! [scatting] Whoo! I will take this. [takes the diamond on Gru’s hand] You've been a bad boy, Gru. [slaps on Gru’s face] Can you get the rest of the suitcases? Come on! Girls. Let's go! [singing] Let's get physical, physical… [The girls are packing the suitcases to going home and Gru leaves; outside "Lucy" and the girls are going inside the plane; continues singing insistinctly] Change of plans, girls. [straining] Instead of going home… Eyebrows! Ow! [grunts; Lucy pulls of her face, revealing to actually be... Bratt in disguise!]
Bratt: ...We're going to Hollywood! [laughs evilly; the girls gasp in horror] Now, that's what I call acting. [chuckling] Let's go, Clive! We've got a giant robot waiting! [Clive laughs]
[At the mansion, Gru is about to leave out the door when suddenly he hears banging from the closet]
Gru: Huh? [opens the closet door and gasps] Lucy? [finds the real Lucy bound and gagged in the closet, removes the gag from her mouth] What is...
Lucy: [breaths] It's Bratt! He took the girls!
Gru : What? No! [watches the jet fly away in horror]
[Dru, drowning his misery after his argument, eats ice cream]
[Gru and Lucy approach him]
Gru: Dru! Dru!
Dru: [turns his back on him] Go away! I don't wanna talk to you.
Gru: Bratt has the girls!
Dru: [stops eating his ice cream, in shock] What?!
[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: [chortling] Hello, Hollywood! [on speaker] I'm back and bigger than ever.
Agnes: [shrieking] I'm scared! Oh my.
Celebrity: Thank you. Thank you so... Oh! [All shrieking] No! No! No, you can’t leave me here! I’m famous!
Bratt: [chortles] Clive, arm the cannons. Chew on this! [shrieking; chortling]
[all shrieking]
[pants and shrieks]
Edith: Hey, mullet head, let us outta here!
Bratt: Oh, don't worry, girls, I’ve prepare a front row seat for you.
[all gasping and shrieking]
[Agnes shrieks]
Margo: Agnes!
Bratt: Once again, I win and Gru loses! Enjoy the show, girls. (You too, little goat.)
[all gasp]
Gru: What in the heck?
Lucy: Oh! I hope the girls are OK.
Dru: Bratt! Bratt at 9:00... No! 3:00! He's on the left! [gasps] No! I’ve seen this episode! He’s gonna bubblegum the whole city and send it up into space!
Lucy: [gasps] Hurry!
[Dru gasps]

[after Dru disabled the robot, Gru, regaining consciousness, searches for Dru, only to be confronted by a furious Bratt]
Bratt: You've ruined everything! And now, it's time to die! Any last words?
Gru: You know what? I got two words for you. Dance fight! [starts dancing]
Bratt: Oh, it is on like Donkey Kong! I'm gonna enjoy this! [he and Gru dance fight]

Bratt: Game over! [laughs evilly as he searches for his keytar, only finding it gone, his evil laugh fades]
Gru: [holding Bratt's keytar] Is this what you're looking for?
Bratt: No! [gets blasted away by Gru into the bubble gum, similar to Bratt blasting away Gru in the beginning, this time playing Dire Straits' Money for Nothing] [last words] No! Curse you, Gru! [bumps an Onions billboard] Ow! Curse you!

(last lines)
Gru: No, no! You gotta be kidding me!
