The Incredibles

I feel different. Is different okay?

The Incredibles is a 2004 Academy Award-winning computer animated feature film produced by Pixar Animation Studios for Walt Disney Pictures, centering around a family of superheroes. It was written and directed by Brad Bird, previously best known for directing the 1999 animated film The Iron Giant. The Incredibles was originally developed as a traditionally-animated movie for Warner Bros., but after Warner shut down its feature animation division, Brad Bird moved to Pixar and took the story with him.

Bob Parr/Mr. IncredibleEdit

No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Sometimes I just want it to stay saved! You know?!
  • Every superhero has a secret identity. I don't know a single one who doesn't. I mean, who wants the pressure of being super all the time?
  • No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Sometimes I just want it to stay saved! You know?! For a little bit. I feel like the maid: "I just cleaned up this mess! Can we keep it clean for, for 10 minutes?! Please?!"
  • Sometimes, I think I just like the simple life, you know, relax a little and raise a family.

Helen Parr / ElastigirlEdit

Of course I have a secret identity! Can you see me in this at the, at the supermarket?
  • Of course I have a secret identity! [about her super-suit] Can you see me in this at the, at the supermarket? Come on! Who'd wanna go shopping as Elastigirl? You know what I mean?
  • Now, I'll tell you what we're not gonna do. We're not gonna panic, we're not gonna die.

Lucius Best/FrozoneEdit

  • Super-ladies, they're always trying to tell you their secret identity. [whispers] Think it'll strengthen the relationship or something like that. I say, "Girl, I don't wanna know about your mild-mannered alter ego or anything like that." I mean, you tell me you're, uh, super-mega-ultra-lightnin' babe? That's all right with me. I'm good. I'm good.
  • I don't see anyone from the old days, Bob. Just you. And we're pushing our luck as it is.
  • Where... is... my... Super... SUIT?!

Dash ParrEdit

  • [After a huge explosion destroys the Parrs' house] Does this mean we have to move again?

Violet ParrEdit

  • I feel different. Is different okay?

Syndrome (Buddy Pine / IncrediBoy)Edit

  • I knew you couldn't do it, even when you've got nothing to lose. You're weak. And I've outgrown you.
  • [has just caught the entire Parr family] What have we here? Matching uniforms? [sees Helen] Oh, no. Elastigirl? You married Elastigirl?! [laughs, then looks at Violet and Dash] And got busy! It's a whole family of Supers! Looks like I've hit the jackpot! [laughs] This is just too good!

MirageEdit

  • [about Syndrome] He's attracted to power. So am I. It's a weakness we share.

Edna ModeEdit

  • I never look back, darling. It distracts from the now.

OtherEdit

  • Rusty: That was totally wicked!!
  • Kari: Because leading experts say, Mozart makes babies smarter. I wish my parents played Mozart when I was asleep because half the time I don't even know what the heck anyone's talking about!
  • Underminer: [last line] Behold the Underminer! I am always beneath you, but nothing is beneath me! I hereby declare war against peace and happiness! Soon all will tremble before me!

DialogueEdit

[Mr. Incredible is about to go to the scene of a tour bus robbery when Buddy enters the car]
Buddy: Cool! Ready for take-off!
Mr. Incredible: What the-- who are you?
Buddy: Well, I'm IncrediBoy!
Mr. Incredible: What? No. You're that kid from the fan club. Brophy-Br-Brody-Bu-Buddy! Buddy.
Buddy: My name is IncrediBoy.
Mr. Incredible: Look, I've been nice, I've stood for photos, signed every scrap of paper you pushed at me, but this? This isn`t funny.
Buddy: You don't have to worry about training me. I know all your moves, your crime-fighting style, favorite catch phrases, And everything! I am your number #1 fan!
[Mr. Incredible ejects him from his car and drives away]

Mr. Incredible: I work alone.
Helen: And I think you need to be more... [goes through rapid series of stretch-power maneuvers] flexible.
Mr. Incredible: Uh, are you doing anything later?
Helen: I have a previous engagement.

[Mr. Incredible confronts a French, mime-like, clown-like super villain named Bomb Voyage]
Mr. Incredible: Bomb Voyage.
Voyage: Monsieur Incroyable...! [Mr. Incredible...!]
Buddy: [offscreen] And IncrediBoy!
[Buddy himself breaks through the window.]
Voyage: IncrediBoy?
Buddy: [flies up to Mr. Incredible, using rocket boots] Hey! Hey! Aren't you curious on how I get around so fast? [shows Mr. Incredible his rocket boots] See? I have these rocket boots. And they--
Mr. Incredible: Go away, Buddy.
Buddy: What?
Mr. Incredible: I work alone.
Voyage: Petit naïf libe...! [Little oaf...!]
[Buddy looks at Voyage]
Buddy: Can we talk? [pulls Mr. Incredible off to the side] You always, say, "Be true to yourself.", but you never say which part of yourself to be true to! Well I've finally figured out who I am! [walks up to Mr. Incredible] I am your ward: IncrediBoy!
Mr. Incredible: And now, you have officially gone too far, Buddy. [grabs Voyage before he can escape]
Buddy: This is because I'd have powers, isn't it? Well, not every superhero has powers, y'know! You can be super without them! I invented these. [points to his rocket boots] I can fly! Can you fly?
Mr. Incredible: Fly home, Buddy. I work alone.
Voyage: Et ton costume est complètement ridicule! [And your outfit is totally ridiculous!]
Buddy: Could you just gimme one chance? Look, I'll show you! I'll go get the police!
[Voyage has attached a bomb to Buddy's cape; Mr. Incredible notices]
Mr. Incredible: Buddy, don't!
Buddy: It'll only take a second! Really!
Mr. Incredible: No! Stop! [releases Voyage] There's a bomb! [grabs onto Buddy's cape]

Mr. Incredible: [hands Buddy to the police] Take this one home. And make sure his mom knows what he's been doing.
Buddy: I can help you! You're making a mistake! [arrested and shoved into the police car] Hey!
Mr. Incredible: [to the cops] The injured jumper. You sent paramedics?
Cop: Already picked him up.
Mr. Incredible: The blast in that building was caused by Bomb Voyage, who I caught in the act of robbing the vault. Now we might be able to nab him if we set up a perimeter.
Cop: You mean he got away?
Mr. Incredible: Well, yeah. [gestures to Buddy in the car] Skippy here made sure of that.
Buddy: IncrediBoy!
Mr. Incredible: You're not affliated with me!

[as the cops burst into the jewelry store where Bob and Lucius are, Lucius reaches for a water cooler to replenish his freezing powers]
Cop: Freeze!
Lucius: I'm thirsty.
Cop: I said "freeze"!
Lucius: I'm just getting a drink. [takes the cup and drinks]
Cop: Okay, you had your drink. Now, I want you to...
Lucius: I know, I know. Freeze. [freezes the cop]

Bob: But that's okay, because what's important is that Mommy and I are always a team. We're always united, against, uh, uh, the forces of, uh--
Helen: Pig-headed-ness?
Bob: Uh, I was gonna say, "Evil.".

Helen: Don't even think about talking about your trip to the principal's office, young man. Your father and I are still going to discuss it.
Dash: I'm not the only kid who's been sent to the office, you know.
Helen: Other kids don't have superpowers. Now, it's perfectly normal
Violet: Normal? What do you know about "normal"? What does anyone in this family know about "normal"?!
Helen: Now, look, honey!
Violet: We act normal, Mom. I wanna be normal! The only one normal is Jack-Jack, and he's not even toilet-trained!
Jack-Jack: [giggles]
Dash: Lucky. [Helen gives him an angry look] I mean, about being normal.

[Edna shows Helen the other suits she has created for the Parrs]
Edna: I started with the baby.
Helen: Started?
Edna: Shh! Darling! Shh! I cut it a little roomy for the free movement. The fabric is comfortable for sensitive skin [flamethrowers throw fire at the suit without leaving burn marks], and it can also withstand a temperature of over 1,000 degrees! Completely bulletproof. [machine guns train on the suit and empty rounds into it without causing any damage] And machine-washable, darling. That's a new feature.
Helen: What on earth do you think the baby will be doing?!
Edna: Well, I'm sure I don't know, darling. Luck favors the prepared. I didn't know the baby's powers, so I covered the basics.
Helen: Jack-Jack doesn't have any powers.
Edna: No? He'll look fabulous anyway. [moves on to Dash's suit] Your boy's suit I designed to withstand enormous friction without heating up or wearing out. A useful feature. [moves on to Violet's] Your daughter's suit was tricky, but I finally created a sturdy material that will disappear completely as she does. [moves on to Helen's new suit] Your suit can stretch as far as you can, without injuring yourself [the suit gets stretched], and still retain its shape. Virtually indestructible. [two missiles fire at the suit, but the suit sustains no damage] Yet it breathes like Egyptian cotton. As an extra feature, each suit contains a homing device, giving you the precise global location of the wearer at the touch of a button. [hands Helen one showing the tracking location of one of the suits] Well, darling? What do you think?
Helen: What do I think?! Bob is retired! I'm retired, our family is underground! You helped my husband resume secret hero-work behind my back?!
Edna: Well, I assumed you knew, darling! Why would he keep secrets from you?
Helen: He wouldn't. Didn't-- D-Doesn't.
Edna: [sighs] Men at Robert's age are often unstable. Prone to weakness.

Helen: There's plenty of leftovers you can reheat, make sure Dash does his homework, and both of you get to bed on time. I should be back tonight, late. You can be in charge that long, can't you?
Violet: Yeah, but why am I in charge, again?
Helen: Nothing. Just a little trouble with Daddy.
Violet: You mean Dad's in trouble, or Dad is the trouble?
Helen: I mean he's either in trouble, or he's going to be.

Violet: [about to a supersuit that Dash grabbed from Helen] What makes you think it's special?
Dash: I don't know, but why'd Mom try to hide it?

Dash: Are we there yet?
Bob: We'll get there when we get there!

Helen: Great. Now our kids are in danger?! I was afraid this would happen.
Bob: Well, if you suspected danger, why'd you bring them?
Helen: I didn't bring them! They stowed away! And I don't think you're striking the proper tone here!

Jack-Jack AttackEdit

short feature with The Incredibles DVD
[Last-minute babysitter Kari turns to Jack-Jack in his highchair.]
Kari: [in baby talk] Now who's ready for some neurological stimulation?

[Kari tries to relax Jack-Jack from using his magical powers and plays flashcards.]
Kari: We're gonna calm things down a bit, and look at flashcards.
[Jack-Jack chews on the card and Kari pulls it out of his mouth.]
Kari: Won't that be fun?
[Jack-Jack chuckles happily.]
[Kari shows a flashcard with a triangle on it.]
Kari: [in baby talk] Triangle!
[Jack-Jack makes a triangle with his hand and baby sounds.]
Kari: Good.
[Kari shows a flashcard with a house on it.]
Kari: House!
[Jack-Jack makes a triangle with his hand and baby sounds.]
Jack-Jack: [in baby talk] Da-da!
Kari: Good.
[Kari shows a flashcard with a campfire on it.]
Kari: Campfire.
[Jack-Jack explodes into flame.]

[Syndrome, in costume, arrives at the Parr home]
Kari: [nervously answers the door] Yes?
Syndrome: Is this the, uh, Parr's residence?
Kari: [manically] Yes! I'm Kari, the babysitter.
Syndrome: [disturbed] Well... hello, Kari.
Kari: You're my replacement, thank heavens you've come! [notices Syndrome's costume] What does the "S" stand for?
Syndrome: For s-s-s-s-sitter! Yeah, sitter. Originally, I was gonna have initials for "baby sitter", but then I would have been going around wearing a big "B.S.", and [laughs] you could understand why I couldn't go with that.
[Cut to Agent Dicker's interrogation of Kari.]
Dicker: And you believed him.
Kari: The baby was exploding! You ever sat an exploding baby before, Mr. Dicker?! [Dicker gets out a device] What's that?
Dicker: Did you tell anybody about this? Your parents?
Kari: Oh, they thought I was being funny. But you believe me, don't you, Mr. Dicker?
Dicker: Sure do, kid.
Kari: Y'know, sometimes I wish I could forget the whole thing.
Dicker: You will, kid. [a suction-cup from the device suddenly attaches itself to Kari's head, wiping her memory] You will.

About The IncrediblesEdit

  • The thing is, our goal wasn't to reproduce reality. We didn't want it to look real, we wanted it to feel real. We wanted to have very stylized characters that were designy and fun to look at, but we wanted to move them through space convincingly, so Bob feels heavy when he moves, and there's a feeling of real physics when Helen stretches, even though it's physically impossible to do. If you look at a lot of animated movies, they don't pay attention to how things move through space. If you move something 10 pounds through space and then stop suddenly, there's a little overshoot. When you transfer weight from one leg to another, there's a certain way that it happens. Again, we're doing unrealistic stuff all the way through the film, but we're trying to pay attention to real physics when we do the unreal stuff so you believe it. We had a number of people come up to us and say "Five minutes into the movie I forgot I was watching an animated film." I don't think the film looks realistic, I don't think it looks remotely realistic. But it feels realistic.
