  • [first lines of the film; narrating] For as long as can be remembered, storks deliverd babies... [We see the tower called "Stork Mountain" as the storks fly out to deliver babies] From their perch on Stork Mountain. [We see clouds as a silhouette stork is flying] It was an honor and a privilege to serve. [We see a stork flying while holding a blonde-haired brown skinned baby with a white blanket] It was our duty, our core belief the driving force of our very lifeblood.
  • If anyone finds out about this I am dead meat! My hopes of becoming boss destroyed!
  • [to the penguins; as he and Tulip prepares for a battle] Put down that baby!
  • An annoying person asked me once why I want to be boss. Well, I never knew why until today. Baby delivery is our true calling. This is not just a bunch of metal and glass and whatever that giant magical crystal thing is made out of. This is the heart of what Storks were put on this earth to do. This is our mission. We pride ourselves on customer service. Well this is a family that never got the baby they asked for. Make a plan; Stick to the plan; Always deliver!


  • Tulip is fine. Orphan hurts my heart.
  • I want to see the baby.
  • You don't? [laughing with Junior] All right, you laugh when you're uncomfortable. Am I pushing your buttons?


Policeman: This is not code.
Nate: [Henry and Sarah gasps] What?!
Policeman: It's all have come down.
Junior: [Hunter opens the doors, the gasps] Hunter?
Hunter: You're fired!
Junior: But, but, but, but...
Hunter: But, but, but, but you're so idiotic. How were you not suspicious? [screen zooms out to a fake front house in front of a warehouse]

Junior: Excuse me! Orphan Tulip?
Tulip: Junior, you're talking to me?
Junior: Yes, Orphan Tulip!
Tulip: No, it's ju- Uh, it's just that you never talk to me.
Junior: Well, yeah, that's changing starting today, Orphan Tulip
Tulip: Oh, uh, Tulip is just fine, Orphan hurts my heart.

[Junior smacks into a glass pathway]
Junior: My old nemesis: glass!
Tulip: [gasps] Birds can't see glass!

Tulip: Look at the baby!
Junior: NO! Just a brief exposure to baby cuteness can ruin your life!
[both look at the baby]
Tulip, Junior: Awwww!

Hunter: Junior, I saved this company by getting out of babies and into package delivery. Monday, it'll all be yours, barring some monumental screw-up...

Junior: Storks don't deliver babies anymore! If anyone finds out about this, I am dead meat!

Hunter: Junior, you know why I built my office entirely out of glass even though birds can't see glass?
[birds fly smack into the glass]

Tulip: If this baby finds her family, then maybe I can find mine.

Junior: Put down that baby!
Penguin: Shhh!
[points out the baby is asleep, a silent fight starts]

Alpha Wolf: I'm gonna devour this thing!
[wolves start licking the baby's face lovingly; the baby giggles with delight]

Toady: [seeing white powder on the floor] Powduh? [brushes some into the air, tastes a bit of the powder] Baby Powduh!

Tulip: [singing] Baby, what are we gonna call you, baby? This is crazy! We're delivering a baby!
Junior: No, we're delivering a package. Maybe we should name it instead of calling the package. We do not name the package, OK? We make a plan, stick to the plan, Always deliver. And we get back to Storkcon, so, the board can name me boss.

Alpha Wolf: Wolf Pack, form a wolf submarine!
[the pack make themselves into a submarine... then come up for air]

[Junior, Tulip and Diamond get across a bridge and cut it so that the Wolf Pack can't get across]
Junior: Suck it, wolves!
Alpha Wolf: Wolf Pack, form a wolf bridge!
Junior: What is happening?
Tulip: The wolves are forming a suspension bridge.
Junior: How is that possible?
Tulip: I don't know.

Alpha Wolf: If you don't give us that baby, we're gonna eat you!
Beta Wolf: We're gonna eat you anyway!
Alpha Wolf: You don't say it, you make the deal and then you eat them anyway!
Beta Wolf: Got it. We're not gonna eat you!
Alpha Wolf: Well now it's too late!

Alpha Wolf: Wolf pack, form a wolf plane!
[the pack makes a plane... which falls apart in the air]

Junior: That's insane! You need to deliver her!
Hunter: We can't let it get out that we accidentally made a baby!

Hunter: [takes the baby] Don't worry, she's with penguins! There are whole documentaries about how great they are at baby-sitting!

Toady: [shows Junior a picture of a Goose on his phone] Check out my girlfriend! She's in Canada!
Junior: Yeah huh.
Toady: She migrated, she's not made up.
Junior: Okay.
Toady: [waving his phone around] Look at her, look at her! She exists, brah!
Junior: That's great.

Junior: We're not like a family, we're just a guy and girl trying to raise a baby.

Tulip: Why do you want to be boss?
Junior: I know.
Tulip: You don't? [laughing with Junior] All man, you laugh when you're uncomfortable.
Junior: [laughing] No.
Tulip: Am I pushing your buttons?
Junior: Uh, no.
Tulip: Yes I am.
Junior: Nah, no.
Tulip: [laughing] Beep, beep, Boop, boop, beep, beep...
Junior: No, those aren't even where my buttons would be if I had buttons.
Tulip: Beep, beep, boop, boop...
Junior: Nice try.
Tulip: [robotic voice] I am programming you to tell me why you want to be boss.
Junior: [robotic voice] I love robots, so this is fun.
Tulip: Beep, beep, boop, boop...
Junior: We're having a good time together.
Tulip: Why do you want to be boss, why do you want to be boss, why do you want to be boss?
Junior: BACK OFF!!!
Tulip: AAAAAAGH!!! [Junior gets Tulip back on the plane after her hat and goggles blew off]
Junior: Wow! Well, that was funny. You almost died. I guess the lesson we learned today is... don't ask me why I want to be boss, right? [chuckles] Okay, good talk.

Nate: [plays the guitar and sings "Never Forget"]
Henry: Nate, how many times I told you not play the musicians?
Sarah: Put the guitar away.
Nate: Oh, great.
Sarah & Henry: Nate, you gonna be deliver baby.
Henry: Nate, you might to stork in delivered babies
