The Incredibles (2004) Poster

Sarah Vowell: Violet Parr



  • Helen : Now it's perfectly normal...

    Violet : [interrupting]  Normal? What do *you* know about normal? What does *anyone* in *this* family know about normal?

    Helen : Now wait a minute, young lady...

    Violet : We act normal, mom! I want to *be* normal! The only normal one is Jack-Jack, and he's not even toilet trained!

    [Jack-Jack blows a raspberry and bursts out laughing] 

    Dash : Lucky...

    [Violet and Helen look askance at him] 

    Dash : Uh, I meant about being normal.

  • [Helen's plane is targeted by Syndrome's missiles] 

    Elastigirl : India-Golf-Niner-Niner transmitting in the blind guard, disengage, repeat, *disengage*.

    [she releases anti-missile devices, begins evasive maneuvers] 

    Elastigirl : Disengage, repeat, *disengage*!

    Mr. Incredible : No! Call off the missiles, I'll do anything!

    Syndrome : Too late! Fifteen years too late...

    Elastigirl : Friendlies, at two-zero miles south-southwest of your position, angels ten, track east, disengage, over! Vi! You have to put a force field around the plane!

    Violet : But you said we weren't supposed to use our powers!

    Elastigirl : I know what I said! Listen to what I'm saying *now*! Disengage, repeat, *disengage*!

    [missiles close in] 

    Dash : [frightened]  Mom?

    Elastigirl : *Violet*! Mayday, mayday, India-Golf-Niner-Niner is buddy spiked! Abort, abort, there are children aboard, say again, there are children aboard this plane!

    Mr. Incredible : NO!

    Elastigirl : [shouts]  Put a field around us, *now*!

    Violet : [frightened]  But I've never done one that big before...!

    Elastigirl : Violet, do it NOW! Abort, abort, abort!

    [the missiles close in, Violet tries to create a force field but can't] 

    Elastigirl : Abort abort abort!

    [the missiles hit; Helen envelopes the children as the plane explodes around them] 

  • [Helen hands the kids two masks] 

    Elastigirl : Put these on. Your identity is your most valuable possession. Protect it. And if anything goes wrong, use your powers.

    Violet : But you said never to use...

    Elastigirl : [snaps at her]  I know what I said!


    Elastigirl : Remember the bad guys on the shows you used to watch on Saturday mornings? Well, these guys aren't like those guys. They won't exercise restraint because you are children. They *will* kill you if they get the chance. Do *not* give them that chance.

  • [Helen emerges from the restroom after changing into her superhero costume, and tosses her bag onto an apparantley empty seat] 

    Violet : Ow!

    Elastigirl : Violet!

    Violet : [becomes visible]  It's not my fault! Dash ran away and I knew I'd get blamed for it...

    Dash : [pops up]  THAT'S NOT TRUE!

    Elastigirl : Dash!

    Violet : [over him]  And I thought he'd try to sneak on the plane so I came in...

    Dash : [over her]  You said, "Something's up with Mom, we have to find out what!"

    Violet : ...And then you closed the doors before I could find him...

    Dash : ...It was YOUR idea, YOUR idea-!

    Violet : ...AND IT'S NOT MY FAULT!

    Dash : ...100 percent, all yours, all the time IDEA!

    Elastigirl : Wait a minute, wait a minute! You left Jack-Jack ALONE?

    Violet : Yes Mom, I'm completely stupid - OF COURSE we got a sitter...

    Dash : [over her]  No, we got someone, Mom! Somebody great! We wouldn't do that!

    Violet : [over him]  Do you think I'm totally irresponsible? Thanks a lot!

  • Elastigirl : This is the right hangar, but I don't see any jets.

    Mr. Incredible : A jet's not fast enough.

    Elastigirl : What's faster than a jet?

    Dash : Hey, how about a rocket?

    Elastigirl : Great. I can't fly a rocket.

    Violet : You don't have to. Use the coordinates from the last launch.

    Mr. Incredible : Oh, wait. I bet Syndrome's changed the password by now. How do I get into the computer?

    Mirage : [Over PA system]  Say please.

  • Helen : Tell me you haven't been listening to the police scanner again

    Bob : Look, I performed a public service. You act like that's a bad thing.

    Helen : It is a bad thing, Bob! Uprooting our family *again* so that you can relive the glory days is a very bad thing!

    Bob : [Defensively]  Reliving the glory days is better than pretending they never happened!

    Helen : Yes! They happened, but this; our family, is what's happening now, Bob! And you're missing this! I can't believe you don't want to go to your own son's graduation!

    Bob : It's not a graduation. He is moving from the fourth grade to the fifth grade.

    Helen : It's a ceremony!

    Bob : It's psychotic! They created new ways to celebrate mediocrity, but it someone is genuinely exceptional...

    Helen : This is not about you, Bob. This is about Dash.

    Bob : You want to do something for Dash? Well, let him actually compete! Let him go out for sports!

    Helen : I will not be made the enemy here! You *know* why we can't!

    Bob : Because he'd be *GREAT*!

    Helen : [Growing in size looming over Bob]  This is not - about - YOU!

    Bob : [Notices a disturbance]  Alright, Dash. Come on out I know you're listening.

    Helen : Vi, you too, young lady.

    Bob : It's okay. Your mother and I were just having a discussion.

    Violet : A pretty loud discussion.

    Bob : Yeah, but that's okay. Because Mommy and I are always united. Against the... uh forces of...

    Helen : Pig-headedness?

    Bob : I was gonna say evil or something...

    Helen : We're sorry we woke you. Everything's alright, get back to bed... in fact

    [to Bob] 

    Helen : we should *all* be in bed.

  • Elastigirl : I think your father is in trouble.

    Violet : If you haven't noticed, Mom, we're not doin' so hot either.

  • Mr. Incredible : [Everyone is trapped in Syndrome's containment unit]  I'm sorry. I've been a lousy father, blind to what I have. So obsessed with being undervalued that I undervalued all of you.

    [while Bob is talking, Violet frees herself using her force field] 

    Dash : Uh, Dad...

    Elastigirl : Shh, don't interrupt.

    Mr. Incredible : So... caught up in the past that I... *You* are my greatest adventure, and I almost missed it. I swear that if we get out of this safely, I will...

    Violet : [At the control panel]  Well, I think Dad has made some excellent progress today, but I think it's time we wind down now.

    [she frees them by hitting a green button] 

  • Elastigirl : You're in charge until I get back, Violet.

    Dash : What?

    Violet : You heard her.

  • Violet : Mom and Dad's lives could be in jeopardy, or worse -


    Violet : their marriage.

  • Violet : Dash, remember what mom said...

    Dash : What?

    Guard 1 : Hey, stop talking!

    [Violet vanishes] 

    Guard 1 : Hold it, freeze!

    Violet : Dash, run!

    Dash : What?

    Violet : Run!

    Dash : Oh yeah!

    [Takes off at super speed] 

    Guard 2 : What the-? They're Supers!

  • [the Incredibles crash/park their RV] 

    Mr. Incredible : Is everybody okay back there?

    Violet : Super duper, Dad.

    Dash : Let's do that again!

  • Violet : You mean Dad's in trouble, or Dad is the trouble?

    Elastigirl : I mean, either he's *in* trouble, or he's *going* to be.

  • Parrot : Identification, please.

    Dash : Huh? Hey, hey Vi, c'mere, look, look it talks! There, that one.

    Parrot : Voice key incorrect.

    Violet : Voice key?

    Parrot : Voice key incorrect.

    Violet : Wait a second...

    [Parrot sounds alarm] 

    Dash : What do we do?

    Violet : Run!

    Dash : Where are we going?

    Violet : Away from here!

  • Dash : She would be eating if we were having Tony loaf.

    Violet : That's it!

    [jumps at Dash] 

    Helen : Both of you sit down!

    [Dash runs around the table, hitting Violet as he passes her, until Violet makes a force field to stop him] 

    Dash : Hey! No force fields!

    Violet : You started it!

    Helen : [grabs Dash and puts him on his seat]  You sit down!

    [grabs Violet and puts her in her seat] 

    Helen : You sit down! Violet!

    [Dash and Violet run under the table to fight, dragging Helen against the table] 

    Bob : [reading newspaper in the other room]  "Simon J. Paladino, longtime advocate of superhero rights, is missing"... Gazer Beam?...

    Helen : Bob! It's time to engage! Do something! Don't just stand there, I need you to... intervene!

    Bob : You want me to intervene?

    [picks up table] 

    Bob : Okay, I'm intervening! I'm intervening!

  • [as Helen leaves the cave, Violet runs after her] 

    Violet : Mom! Mom, what happened on the plane... I-I'm sorry, I wanted to- when you asked me to... I'm sorry...

    Helen : Shh... it isn't your fault. It wasn't fair for me to suddenly ask so much of you. But things are different now, and doubt is a luxury we can't afford anymore, sweetie. You have more power than you realize. Don't think, and don't worry. If the time comes, you'll know what to do. It's in your blood.
