Carl Fredricksen: This is crazy. I finally meet my childhood hero and he's trying to kill us. What a joke.
Dug: Hey, I know a joke! A squirrel walks up to a tree and says, "I forgot to store acorns for the winter and now I am dead." Ha! It is funny because the squirrel gets dead.
[Carl, in his once-again airborne house, suddenly hears a knock at the front door]
Carl Fredricksen: Russell?
[opens the door to find Dug on his doorstep]
Carl Fredricksen: Dug!
Dug: I was hiding under your porch because I love you. Can I stay?
Carl Fredricksen: Can you stay? Why, you're my dog, aren't you? And I'm your master!
Dug: You are my master? Oh, boy! Oh, boy!
[lunges forward and covers Carl in slobbery kisses]
Carl Fredricksen: [laughing] Good boy, Dug. You're a good boy.
Russell: That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most.
Young Ellie: [Ellie opens her Adventure Book to reveal to Carl a "Life" magazine with Charles Muntz on the cover] You know him.
Young Ellie: Charles Muntz, explorer. When I get big, I'm going where he's going,
[pulls away the magazine to reveal a map of... ]
Young Ellie: South America. It's like America, but south.
Carl Fredricksen: Hey, let's play a game. It's called "See Who Can Be Quiet the Longest".
Russell: Cool! My mom loves that game!
Russell: [reading from his scout handbook in monotone] Good afternoon. My name is Russell, and I am a Wilderness Explorer in Tribe 54, Sweatlodge 12. Are you in need of any assistance today, sir?
Carl Fredricksen: No.
Russell: I could help you cross the street.
Carl Fredricksen: No.
Russell: I could help you cross your yard.
Carl Fredricksen: No.
Russell: I could help you cross your... porch?
Carl Fredricksen: No.
Russell: Well, I gotta help you cross *something*!
Young Ellie: [to Carl] You don't talk much... I like you!
Construction Foreman Tom: This is serious. He's out to get your house!
Carl Fredricksen: Tell your boss he can *have* our house.
Construction Foreman Tom: Really?
Carl Fredricksen: When I'm dead!
[goes inside and slams the front door]
Construction Foreman Tom: I'll take that as a maybe!
Carl Fredricksen: [after his house hits a cliff and shatters a window] I am nobody's master, got it? I don't want you here
[points his cane at Dug]
Carl Fredricksen: and I don't want you here!
[points it at Kevin]
Carl Fredricksen: [addressing Russell] I'm stuck with you, but if you two don't clear out of here by the time I count to three...
Dug: Oh! A ball! Oh, boy! Oh, boy! A ball!
Carl Fredricksen: Ball?
Carl Fredricksen: You want it, boy?
Dug: Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!
Carl Fredricksen: Huh? Huh?
Dug: Yes, I do! I so ever do want the ball!
Carl Fredricksen: Go get it!
[throws the ball]
Dug: Oh, boy! Oh, boy! I will go get it and then bring it back!
Carl Fredricksen: Russell, give me some chocolate.
[grabs a piece of chocolate from Russell and throws it into the bushes, leaving Kevin to run off after it]
Russell: [Whining] I'm tired! My knee hurts!
Carl Fredricksen: Which knee?
Russell: ...My elbow hurts!
[Carl, with his house high in the air, hears a knock at the door and finds Russell on the front porch]
Russell: Hi, Mr. Fredricksen! It's me, Russell!
Carl Fredricksen: What are you doing out here, kid?
Russell: I found the snipe and I followed it under your porch, but this snipe had a long tail and looked more like a large mouse.
[Russell's Wilderness Explorers flag blows away in the wind]
Russell: Please let me in.
Carl Fredricksen: No.
[Carl goes inside and slams the door. Russell waits uncertainly a few moments]
Carl Fredricksen: [opens the door] Oh, all right. You can come...
[Russell races past Carl into the house]
Carl Fredricksen: ...in.
Dug: [to the bird Kevin] Won't you please be my prisoner, please, please, please!
Russell: [Carl and Russell find Dug in a South American desert; Russel pets him] Hey, I like dogs!
Carl Fredricksen: [calling out] We have your dog!
Russell: [Dug walks around Russell] Whoa.
Carl Fredricksen: I wonder who he belongs to?
Russell: Sit, boy.
Russell: Hey look, he's trained! Shake.
[Dug shakes his paw]
Russell: Uh-huh. Speak.
Dug: Hi there.
Carl Fredricksen: [He and Russell make surprised exclamations] Did that dog just say "Hi there"?
Dug: Oh, yes.
Carl Fredricksen: Whaa!
Dug: My name is Dug. I have just met you, and I love you.
[he jumps up on Carl]
Carl Fredricksen: Wha...
Dug: My master made me this collar. He is a good and smart master and he made me this collar so that I may speak. Squirrel!
[looks to distance for a few seconds]
Dug: My master is good and smart.
Carl Fredricksen: It's not possible!
Dug: Oh, it is because my master is smart!
Russell: Cool! What do these do, boy?
Russell: [Russell starts to fiddle with a dial on Dug's collar, causing him to cycle through languages and different voices] Hey would you - cuerdo con tigo - I use that collar - watashi wa hanashi ma - to talk with. I would be happy if you stop.
Carl Fredricksen: Russell, don't touch that. It could be... radioactive or something.
Dug: I am a great tracker. My pack sent me on a special mission, all by myself. Have you seen a bird? I am going to find one, and I am on the scent. I am a great tracker; did I mention that?
[Dug is suddenly attacked by Kevin, who shrieks in Dug's face after pinning him to the ground]
Dug: Hey, that is the bird! I have never seen one up close, but this is the bird. May I take your bird back to camp as my prisoner?
Carl Fredricksen: Yes, yes, take it! And on the way, learn how to bark like a real dog!
Dug: Oh, I can bark.
Dug: And this is howling.
Russell: [Kevin screeches] Can we keep him? Please, please, please?
Carl Fredricksen: No.
Russell: But it's a TALKING DOG!
Carl Fredricksen: It's just a weird trick or something. Let's get to the falls.
[Carl just saved Russell, tied to a chair, from falling to his death off Muntz' Airship, and leaves him on the porch]
Russell: But I want to help!
Carl Fredricksen: I don't want your help, I want you safe.
Alpha: Not you, you lost the Bird. Now, you must wear the cone of shame.
Dug: [wearing a cone around his head in the next scene, and hangs his head] I do not like the cone of shame.
Russell: A wilderness explorer is a friend to all, be a plant or fish or tiny mole!
Carl Fredricksen: That doesn't even rhyme!
Russell: [offended] Yeah it does.
Russell: [off screen in the jungle] Mr. Fredricksen? Am I supposed to dig the hole before or after?
Carl Fredricksen: Nyaa! None of my concern!
Russell: [after a pause] Oh... It's before!
Carl Fredricksen: Nyaa!
[covers his ears and shakes his head]
Russell: [points to Kevin] I found the snipe!
Carl Fredricksen: [amused] Oh, did you now?
Russell: Are they tall?
Carl Fredricksen: Oh, yes. They're very tall.
Russell: Do they have a lot of colors?
Carl Fredricksen: They do, indeed!
Russell: Do they like chocolate?
Carl Fredricksen: Ye... chocolate?
[he turns around and sees Kevin]
Carl Fredricksen: Gaah! What is that thing?
Carl Fredricksen: I can't tell where we are.
Russell: Oh, we're in South America, all right. It was a cinch with my Wilderness Explorer GPS.
Carl Fredricksen: GP what?
Russell: My dad gave it to me; it shows exactly where we are on the planet!
[runs to window making beeping sounds]
Russell: With this baby, we'll never be lost!
[gestures and accidentally throws the unit out the window]
Carl Fredricksen: [after throwing both a ball and chocolate into the jungle to get rid of Dug and Kevin, Carl runs with his house for a considerable distance] There. We should've gone enough. We should be rid of them now.
[looks to his left and sees Dug]
Dug: [with the ball in his mouth] Hi, Master.
[Carl turns to his right and Kevin squawks in his ear]
Carl Fredricksen: You'd better get up, Russell. Or else, the tigers will come and eat you.
Russell: There are no Tigers in South America. Zoology.
Dog: [to Carl and Russell after Muntz accepts them] I like you temporarily!
Charles Muntz: You know, Carl... these people who pass through here, they all tell pretty good stories.
[Muntz walks to a row of human skulls on a shelf, each wearing a flight helmet]
Charles Muntz: A "surveyor" making a map.
[knocks over the first skull with his cane]
Charles Muntz: A "botanist" cataloguing plants.
[knocks over the second skull]
Charles Muntz: An old man taking his house to Paradise Falls.
[lifts and drops the third skull, which rolls across the floor and stops at Carl's feet]
Charles Muntz: That's the best one yet. I can't wait to hear how it ends.
Dug: I will stop the dogs!
[jumps in front of a pack of dogs]
Dug: Stop, you dogs!
[Pack of dogs runs past Dug. Alpha grabs Dug by the neck and throws him out of the way, which breaks the cone around his head]
Alpha: [Through a communicator on Beta's collar] This is Alpha calling Dug. Come in, Dug.
Dug: Hi Alpha. Hey, your voice sounds funny.
Alpha: I know, I know! Have you seen the bird?
Dug: Why, yes. The bird is my prisoner now.
Gamma: Yeah, right!
[Kevin hisses at the screen]
Alpha: Impossible! Where are you?
Dug: I am here with the bird, and I will bring it back, and then you will like me. Oh, gotta go.
[Russell appears on the screen]
Russell: Hey Dug! Who you talking to?
Alpha: [the screen goes black] No, wait, wait!
Beta: What's Dug doing?
Gamma: Why's he with that small mailman?
Beta: Where are they?
[Alpha locates Dug on GPS]
Dug: There he is, come on!
[they all dart into the jungle]
Charles Muntz: Any last words Fredricksen? Come on, spit it out!
[Carl spits out his dentures]
Russell: [to Carl, about Kevin] This was her favorite candy bar. Because you sent her away, there's more for you.
Russell: Hey look, buildings! That building's so close, I can almost touch it!
Russell: [In Carl's thought] Wow! This is great! You should try this, Mr. Fredricksen! Look, there's a bus stop that could take me home two blocks away! Heyy, I can see your house from here!
Carl Fredricksen: [pulling on rope] Don't jerk around so much, kid -
[let's go, shocked]
Carl Fredricksen: [back in reality] Well, that's not gonna work.
Beta: Chocolate, I smell chocolate!
Gamma: I'm getting prunes and denture cream! Who are they?
Beta: Oh, man, Master will not be pleased. We better tell him someone took the bird. Right, Alpha?
Alpha: [in a squeaky voice] No. Soon enough the bird will be ours yet again. Find the scent, my compadres, and you too shall have much rewardings from Master for the toil factor you wage.
Beta: Hey, Alpha, I think there's something wrong with your collar. You must have bumped it.
Gamma: Yeah, your voice sounds funny!
[they both laugh]
Alpha: Beta! Gamma!
[they both stop laughing]
Alpha: Mayhaps you desire to - SQUIRREL!
[All of them turn their attention to a nearby tree; slight pause, Gamma whimpers]
Alpha: Mayhaps you desire to challenge the ranking that I have been asigned by my strength and cunning...
Beta: No, no, no. But maybe Dug would. You might wanna ask him.
Gamma: Yeah. I wonder if he's found the bird on his very special mission.
Alpha: Do not mention Dug to me at this time. His fool's errand will keep him most occupied. Most occupied, indeed. Ha ha ha! Do you not agree with that which I am saying to you now?
Beta: Sure, but the second Master finds out you sent Dug out by himself, none of us will get a treat.
[He and Gamma whine]
Alpha: [lunges and growls at them] You are wise, my trusted lieutenant.
Russell: Where are you keeping Kevin? Let me go!
Beta: Scream all you want, small mailman.
Alpha: None of your mailman friends can hear you.
Russell: I'll unleash all my Wilderness Explorer training!
Dug: Oh, please, oh, please, oh, please be my prisoner!
Russell: Dug, stop bothering Kevin!
Dug: That man there says I should take the bird...
[Kevin squacks at Dug]
Dug: ... and I love that man there like he is my master.
Carl Fredricksen: I am not your master!
Dug: I am warning you once again, bird!
Russell: Hey! Quit it!
Dug: I am jumping on you now, bird!
Carl Fredricksen: Russell, at this rate we'll never get to the falls!
Dug: Here, bird!
Carl Fredricksen: [to Russell] Now, we're gonna walk to the falls quickly and quietly with no rap music or flashdancing.
Carl Fredricksen: We have three days, at best, before the helium leaks out of those balloons. And if we're not at the falls when that happens...
Russell: [behind Carl, obviously distracted, looking down] Sand.
Carl Fredricksen: ...we're not getting to the falls.
Russell: I found sand!
Carl Fredricksen: [looks up at his house, through a window, to where a picture of old Ellie hangs on the wall] Don't you worry, Ellie. We'll get our house over there.
Russell: I've never been in a floating house before.
[Russell sees a picture of Ellie and laughs]
Russell: Goggles. Look at this stuff. Wow! You're going on a trip?
[Russell picks up a picture of Paradise Falls and reads from it]
Russell: "Paradise Falls, a land lost in time." You're going to South America, Mr. Fredricksen?
[Carl grabs the picture from Russell]
Carl Fredricksen: Don't touch that! You'll soil it.
Russell: You know, most people take a plane, but you're smart because you'll have all your TV and clocks and stuff.
Carl Fredricksen: [Having arrived above Paradise Falls in South America, miles from where they took off] Don't worry, I'll get you down, find a Bus Stop.
[cuts off the strings to some of the balloons, allowing the house to descend down]
Russell: Whoa, that's s gonna be like a billion transfers to get back to my house...
Russell: The wilderness must be explored! CA-CA! RAAWWRR!
Dug: [With Kevin up on the roof of Carl's house, calling out] The Bird is calling to her babies.
Russell: So, Kevin's a Girl?
Charles Muntz: [on board his Spirit of Adventure airship] Does anyone know WHERE THEY ARE?
[Russell is suddenly dragged across the large window by a garden hose. Muntz stares while his eye twitches]
Carl Fredricksen: [George and A.J. walk up to Carl's door and A.J. knocks on it. Carl opens the door] Morning, gentlemen.
Nurse George: Good morning, Mr. Fredricksen. You ready to go?
Carl Fredricksen: [chuckles] Ready as I'll ever be. Would you do me a favor and take this?
[hands A.J. a suitcase]
Carl Fredricksen: I'll meet you at the van in just a minute. I, uh, wanna say one last goodbye to the old place.
Nurse George: Sure. Take all the time you need, sir.
[Carl slams his door shut]
Nurse AJ: That's typical. He's probably going to the bathroom for the 80th time.
[they start walking to their van]
Nurse George: [sees the mess of helium canisters on Carl's lawn and scoffs] You think he'd take better care of his house.
[a large shadow begins to loom up behind them. Many balloons emerge from beneath a tarp and lift Carl's house off of the ground. Both scream. Carl's house hits their van. Its alarm goes off]
Carl Fredricksen: Ah, ha ha ha! So long, boys! I'll send you a postcard from Paradise Falls!
Alpha: [In squeaky voice] Master, dinner is ready.
Charles Muntz: Oh, yes, broken collar? It's that loose wire again.
[fixes the collar]
Charles Muntz: There you go, big fella.
Alpha: [In deep, intimidating voice] Thank you, Master.
Russell: [Nervously] I liked his other voice better.
[Dug manage to outsmart Alpha]
Dog: Oh my Gosh! Alpha wears the Cone of Shame!
[Alpha struggles to get his head unstuck from Between the Steering Wheel. He also damaged his Collar while doing so]
Alpha: [Squeaky Voice] Not yet you fool! Get this thing off me!
[Alpha sits, the Other Dogs then do the same]
Dog: Yes Alpha!
Dug: Hey, I'm not Alpha. He is. Oh!
Construction Foreman Tom: Hey! 'Morning, Mr. Fredricksen. Need any help there?
Carl Fredricksen: No. Yes. Tell your boss over there that you boys are ruining our house.
Construction Foreman Tom: Well, just to let you know, my boss would be happy to take this old place off your hands, and for double his last offer! What do you say to that?
[Carl blows Tom's hat off with his leaf blower]
Construction Foreman Tom: Uh, I take that as a no, then.
Carl Fredricksen: I believe I made my position to your boss quite clear.
Construction Foreman Tom: You poured prune juice in his gas tank.
Carl Fredricksen: [snickers] Oh, yeah, that was good.
Construction Worker Steve: [directing a large construction vehicle backing up] Okay, keep her coming. Keep coming. And stop. Stop. Stop!
[it starts to run over Carl's mailbox]
Carl Fredricksen: [watching from his doorway] Why... Hey! Hey you!
[Steve sees him and runs to the mailbox]
Carl Fredricksen: What do you... What do you think you're doing?
[he shuffles quickly to his mailbox]
Construction Worker Steve: I am so sorry, sir.
[he attempts to fix Carl's mailbox]
Carl Fredricksen: Don't touch that!
Construction Worker Steve: [they fight for control of the mailbox] No, no, no. Let me take care of that for you.
Carl Fredricksen: Get away from our mailbox!
Construction Worker Steve: Hey. Sir, I...
Carl Fredricksen: I don't want you to touch it!
[he clubs Steve on the head with his cane. Blood is drawn. Carl retreats into his house, ashamed]
[Muntz had just taken Kevin, and set Carl's House on Fire, which popped some of the balloons and left it floating only inches to the ground]
Russell: You gave away Kevin. You just... gave her away.
Carl Fredricksen: This is none of my concern.
[Turns around, Furious after what happened]
Carl Fredricksen: I DIDN'T ASK FOR ANY OF THIS.
Dug: Master, it's alright.
Carl Fredricksen: I AM NOT YOUR MASTER! AND YOU DIDN'T SHOW UP, NONE OF THIS WOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED. BAD DOG! BAD DOG! Now whether you assist me or not, I am going to Paradise Falls, if it kills me.
Russell: Oh! Mr. Fredricksen! If we happen to get separated, use the wilderness explorer call: "CA - CA! RAWRRR!"
Newsreel Announcer: [after the National Explorer's Society accuses Muntz of fabricating the "Monster of Paradise Falls" skeleton] The organization strips Muntz of his membership.
[a patch is ripped off Muntz's jacket]
Newsreel Announcer: Humiliated, Muntz vows a return to Paradise Falls and promises to capture the beast alive!
Charles Muntz: [speaking to a large audience outside in the newsreel] I promise to capture the beast alive, and I will not come back until I do!
Newsreel Announcer: Movietown News presents, "Spotlight on Adventure." What you are now witnessing is footage never before seen by civilized humanity: a lost world in South America. Lurking in the shadow of majestic Paradise Falls, it sports plants and animals undiscovered by science. Who would dare set foot on this inhospitable summit? Why, our subject today, Charles Muntz!
Carl Fredricksen: [to a contractor trying to get Carl to move out] You in the suit! Yes, you! Take a bath, hippie!
Police Officer Edith: [after Carl gets back from the courtroom, at night] Sorry, Mr. Fredricksen. You don't seem like a public menace to me. Take this.
[she hands him a Shady Oaks Retirement Village brochure]
Police Officer Edith: The guys from Shady Oaks will be by to pick you up in the morning, okay?
Dug: I can smell you!
Carl Fredricksen: [confused] What? You can, smell us?
Dug: I can smell you!
Russell: [when Carl realizes that the "person" he's talking to is actually a rock, laughing] You were talking to a rock.
Russell: [Distracting the Dogs on the planes after having managed to finally climb up the hose onto Carl's Porch of his house floating around Muntz' Airship] Hey look, Squirrel!
[Beta, Gamma and Omega all crash into each other, destroying their planes as they activate their parachutes]
Gamma: [Slowly descending] I hate Squirrels!
[Having had a good read of Ellie's book she made many years ago, Carl finally starts to have a Change of Heart]
Carl Fredricksen: [Walking outside] Russell?
[Still mad at Carl, Russell takes some of the Balloons from his Roof, ties them around his waste, and takes Carl's Leaf Blower]
Carl Fredricksen: Russell, what are you doing?
Russell: I'm Gonna help Kevin, even if you won't.
[Russell starts up the Leaf Blower and disappears into the Clouds]
Carl Fredricksen: Russell, No!
[Muntz' Dogs arrive back at his airship, wet after they failed to stop Carl, Russell, and Kevin from getting away]
Charles Muntz: You lost them?
Beta: They were no match, too fast, they outsmarted us.
Gamma: Yeah, Dug helped them get away.
Charles Muntz: Wait a minute, Dug?
[Knowing all his Dog's have a Tracking Device on his Collar, Muntz locates Dug on GPS. The scene changes to show Dug with his Collar flashing, sniffing the air at night, with Carl and Russell taking Kevin back to her babies]
Dug: Oh boy, my Pack isn't following us. Boy are they dumb.
Carl Fredricksen: So you want to assist an old person?
Russell: Yep! Then I will be a Senior Wilderness Explorer!
Carl Fredricksen: [looks around furtively, then leans in close] Have you ever heard of a Snipe?
Carl Fredricksen: Bird. Beady eyes. Every night it sneaks in my yard and gobbles my poor azaleas. I'm elderly and infirm. I can't catch it. If only someone could help me...
Russell: Me! Me! I'll do it!
Carl Fredricksen: Oh, I don't know. It's awfully crafty. You'd have to clap your hands three times to lure it in.
Russell: I'll find it, Mr. Fredricksen!
Carl Fredricksen: I think its burrow is two blocks down. If you go past...
Russell: Two blocks down! Got it!
[Russell runs off down the street, calling out and clapping his hands]
Russell: Sniiiipe! Here, Snipey, Snipey...
Carl Fredricksen: [smirks] Bring it back here when you find it!
Charles Muntz: [Muntz notices that Russell is hanging by Carl's garden hose high in the air. He speaks into his intercom] Gray leader? Take down the house.
Russell: [still hanging on the hose] AAAAh!
[he sees three planes drop out of the blimp]
[the planes swoop in. Three dogs are piloting them]
Beta: Gray Leader, checking in.
Gamma: Gray Two, checking in.
Omega: Gray Three, checking in.
Beta: [they approach Carl's house] Target sighted.
[he chomps down on a squeaky bone. The plane fires projectiles]
[as Carl holds onto the hose to his house, preventing it from drifting away without him and Russell in it, he urges Russell to climb up the hose and onto the porch]
Carl Fredricksen: Once you get to the Porch, find a rope, and pull me up. Got it?
[Russell strains as he tries to climb up the hose off screen, which is hard work]
Carl Fredricksen: Are you on the Porch yet?
[the scene changes to show that Russell has barely made it up an inch]
Russell: [Giving up and Exhausted] I can't do it.
Carl Fredricksen: That's it? I came all this way just to end up on the Wrong Side of this Rock Pile?
Carl Fredricksen: [Depressed] Now what am I gonna do?
Russell: I can assist you to the Falls. We could walk you house over.
Carl Fredricksen: Well, that could work.
Russell: Then when we get there, will you sign my badge?
[Carl ties ropes hanging from the house round his and Russell's waste in the Next Scene as they start to walk]
Carl Fredricksen: You've been camping before, haven't you?
Russell: Well, never outside.
Carl Fredricksen: Well, why didn't you ask your dad how to build a tent?
Russell: I don't think he wants to talk about this stuff.
Carl Fredricksen: Why don't you try him sometime? Maybe he'll surprise you.
Russell: Well, he's away a lot. I don't see him much.
Carl Fredricksen: He's got to be home sometime.
Russell: Well, I called, but... Phyllis told me I bug him too much.
Carl Fredricksen: Phyllis? You call your own mother by her first name?
Russell: Phyllis isn't my mom.
Carl Fredricksen: [sheepish] Oh.
