  • When you guys tracked me down after responding to my ad, my first thought was: "Where did all these little tater-tots come from, and where did they find so much denim?"
  • Distinguished villains, my name is Gru! I feel like I'm talking too loud, even though our proximity doesn't require this kind of volume!
  • I'm pretty despicable. You don't want to cross me!
  • Otto, you take the stone back to the lair, and I'll distract them.
  • This kid just stole something from the worst villains in the world!
  • Is this--? Are you pulling on my legs right now? Otto, where's the stone?
  • Did you just... trade my future... FOR A PET ROCK??!! [Otto says "Yes" in Spanish] OK. Otto, where was this birthday party?
  • Alright, alright, I’m not mini. Please stop calling me that.
  • My minions will save me.
  • Minions, assemble!
  • My mom was right. You don't belong here! You're fired!
  • I'm going to find that stone. And when I get home, you all better be gone.
  • Otto, close your yapper!
  • Otto! It's Mini-Boss!
  • You found the stone! Otto, I'm so proud of you!
  • Obviously, you guys are rehired.
  • [last lines] Big Boss! I like that.

Belle BottomEdit

  • Ooh, baby, the Anti-Villain League can't catch this. Guess who stole the map?
  • You seriously think this puny, little child can be a villain?
  • Come back when you've done something evil to impress me!
  • Oh, I didn't mean to scare you. Now, where's Gru?
  • Why don't we make this a fair fight? [laughs evilly]

Master ChowEdit

  • You like picking on little guys, huh? I am a master of Kung Fu.

Wild KnucklesEdit

  • The map to the legendary Zodiac Stone. We'll become the most powerful villains in the world!


Gru: My mom was right. You don't belong her. You're fired!
[The Minions gasp in shock as one of them faints]
Gru: I'm going to find that stone. And when I get home, you all better be gone.
Otto: Mini-Boss. [speaking Minionese as if saying, "I'm sorry. How about we all go with you?"]
Gru: Otto, close your yapper!
Otto: Oh.

Gru: One day, I hope to fake my own death to escape the authorities.
Wild Knuckles: Shoot for the moon, kid. Shoot for the moon.


  • Brace yourself.
  • A villain will rise.
