Quotes

Gru: Hello, Fred. FYI. Your dog has been leaving little bombs in my yard, and I do not appreciate it.

Fred McDade: Oh you know dogs... they go where they want to go.

Gru: Unless they're dead.

[laughs]

Gru: I'm joking! Although it is true. Anyway, have a good one.

Agnes: Will you read us a bedtime story?

Gru: No.

Agnes: Pretty please?

Gru: The physical appearance of the please makes no difference.

Agnes: Oh, my gosh look at that fluffy unicorn!

[Agnes looks at the unicorn with awe]

Agnes: He's so fluffy, I'm gonna die!

Dr. Nefario: We have to warn him, and FAST!

[starts driving on his moped very slowly]

Gru: We stole the Statue of Liberty...!

[the minions cheer]

Gru: ...the small one, from Las Vegas!

[the cheers stop]

Gru: I won't even mention the Eiffel Tower... also Vegas.

Young Gru: Mom, someday, I'm going to go to the moon.

Gru's Mom: I'm afraid you're too late, son. NASA isn't sending the monkeys anymore.

Agnes: Pinkie promise?

Gru: Oh yes, my pinkie promises.

Gru: [reading the book he wrote] One big unicorn, strong and free, thought he was happy as he could be. Then three little kittens came around and turned his whole life upside down. They made him laugh, they made him cry. He never should have said goodbye. And now he knows he can never part from those three little kittens that changed his heart.

Agnes: Why are you wearing your pajamas?

Vector: [sputters] These aren't pajamas! It's a warm-up suit.

Edith: What are you warming up for?

Vector: Stuff.

Margo: What sort of stuff?

Vector: Super-cool stuff you wouldn't understand.

Agnes: Like sleeping?

Vector: THEY ARE NOT PAJAMAS!

Edith: Hey, that one looks like me.

Gru: What are you talking about? These are kittens! Any relation to persons living or dead is completely coincidental.

Gru: Kyle. These are not treats. These are guests!

[to the girls]

Gru: Girls, this is Kyle, my... dog.

Agnes: Ooh, fluffy doggie!

[runs toward Kyle, who whines and runs away; griefs in disappointment]

Margo: Hello? Cookies for sale!

Gru: Go away, I'm not home!

Margo: Uh, yes, you are. I heard you.

Gru: No, you didn't. This... is a recording.

Margo: [scoffs] No, it isn't.

Gru: Yes, it is. Watch this. Leave a message. Beep!

[Edith kicks the door, causing Gru to scream in pain]

Agnes: Goodbye, recorded message.

Margo: [off-screen] Agnes, come on!

Agnes: I like him. He's nice.

Edith: He's scary.

Agnes: Like Santa.

Vector: I'm applying for a villain loan. I go by the name of Vector. It's a mathematical term, represented by an arrow with both direction and magnitude. Vector! That's me, because I commit crimes with both direction and magnituide. Oh yeah!

Gru: [Explaining why the girls can't find their book "Three Little Kittens"] That book was accidentally destroyed maliciously...

Agnes: Aw. My caterpillar never turned into a butterfly.

Edith: That's a Cheeto.

Agnes: Oh.

[eats it]

Gru: We have located a shrink ray in a secret lab. And once we take this shrink ray, we will have the capability to pull off the TRUE crime of the century!

[in a sinister tone]

Gru: We... are going to steal...

[the minions pull out their weapons]

Gru: Wait, wait! I haven't told you what it is yet.

[a rocket launcher is fired and hits one of the minions]

Gru: Hey. Dave, listen up, please!

[the hit minion walks over to Dave and punches him]

Gru: [gets on the platform as it rises up to the roof] Next, we are going to steal... pause for effect...

[the platform stops so that Gru is silhouetted against the moon]

Gru: ...THE MOON!

[Minions cheer]

Gru: And once the moon is mine, the world will give me whatever I want to get it back, and I will be the greatest villain of all time! That's what I'M talking 'bout!

Dr. Nefario: [a minion drinks from a bottle, starts floating] We've been working on this for a while now. It's an Anti-gravity serum.

[the minion floats out an open skylight]

Dr. Nefario: I meant to close that. He'll be alright, I'm sure.

Gru: Do the effects wear off?

Dr. Nefario: [looking up at some minions floating on the roof] Uh... so far, no. No, they don't.

Gru: [Sees Edith near his iron maiden] No, no! Stay away from there! It's fragile!

Margo: Aha. What about the floor?

Gru: Yes, you may touch the floor.

Margo: What about the air?

Gru: Yes, you may touch the air.

Edith: What about this?

[holds a ray gun in her hands, the laser sight aimed right at Gru]

Gru: [screams, holding a frying pan for protection] Where did you get that?

Edith: [shrugs] Found it.

[Gru takes it away from her]

Gru: Okay, rule number two: You will not bother me while I'm working. Rule number three: You will not cry, or whine, or laugh, or giggle, or sneeze or barf or fart! So no, no, no annoying sounds. All right?

Agnes: Does this count as annoying?

[lets go of Margo's hand and puckers her cheeks]

Gru: [stops Agnes] Very!

[sighs irritated]

Gru: I'll see you in six hours.

[leaves the kitchen]

Margo: Okay, don't worry. Everything is going to be fine. We're gonna be really happy here. Right?

[Gru sighs]
