The Croods (2013) Poster


Nicolas Cage: Grug



  • Guy : Once upon a time, there was a beautiful tiger. She lived in a cave with the rest of her family. Her father and mother told her: "You may go anywhere you want, but never go near the cliff, for you could fall."

    Grug : And fall. Good story.

    Guy : But when no one was looking, she go near the cliff, for the closer she came to the edge, the more could she hear, the more could she see, the more she could feel. Finally, she stood at the very edge. She saw a light. She leaned out to touch it... and she slipped.

    Grug : And she fell.

    Guy : And she flew.

    Thunk : Where did she fly?

    Guy : Tomorrow.

    Eep : Tomorrow?

    Guy : A place with more suns in the sky than you can count.

    Thunk : It would be so bright!

    Guy : A place not like today, or yesterday. A place where things are better.

    Grug : Tomorrow isn't a place. It's-it's-it... Ugh! You can't see it!

    Guy : Oh, yes, yes it is. I've seen it. That's where I'm going.

  • Grug : What is this stuff that saves you from my punches?

    Guy : Tar.

    Grug : No!

    Guy : Please...

    Grug : I have to get back to them.

    Guy : Stop struggling!

    Grug : No!

    Guy : Grug, STOP! No one gets out of this. Believe me... I know.

    Grug : Your...

    Guy : Family. Yeah.

    Grug : Sorry.

    Guy : I was little when it happened. Last thing my parents told me was: "Don't hide. Live. Follow the sun. You'll make it to Tomorrow."

    Grug : You followed the light. My daughter is a lot like you.

    Guy : No. She's like you. She loves you, but always forgets to say it. Just like you forget to tell her.

  • Eep : Dad, I'm afraid.

    Grug : Never be afraid.

  • Grug : No more dark. No more hiding. No more caves. What's the point of all this? To follow the light. I can't change. I don't have ideas. But I have my strength. And right now, that's all you need.

    Ugga : No, we don't know what's over there. Maybe nothing! It's too risky!

    Grug : It's a chance.

    Guy : I'll take that chance.

    Grug : You know, I've wanted to throw you away ever since I met you.

    Guy : Heh. That's a joke, right?

    Grug : [jokingly]  What's a "joke"?

    [throws him over to the other cliff] 

  • Eep : [Grug hugs Eep]  This is good... what do you call this?

    Grug : I call it... a hug. Because it rhymes with Grug; but you can always change it if you don't like it.

    Eep : No,

    [Hugs Grug] 

    Eep : I like it.

  • Ugga : Mom, we're ready to leave. Mom?

    [Silence, Grug Looks Hopefully] 

    Gran : Still alive!

    Grug : It's still early.

    Gran : And You're still fat!

  • Grug : [Smears mud on Thunk's face]  Paintings are so passe. I call this a snapshot.

    [Hits Thunk on the face with a flat rock, leaving an impression of his face] 

    Thunk : Can we do that again? I think I blinked.

  • Eep : I never got to tell him.

    Ugga : Eep, if your dad were here, he would tell you to...

    Grug : [from afar]  Get out of the way!

    Thunk : Wow. You sound just like him.

  • [repeated line] 

    Grug : Release the baby!

  • Ugga : [Wearing a wig]  Honey, what's that on your head?

    Gran : It's called desperation.

    Grug : I call it a rug. Rhymes with Grug.

    [points to boulder] 

    Grug : And this is a ride. Also rhymes with Grug.

    Guy : That doesn't rhyme.

  • Grug : I guess I was just busy keeping them all alive.

    Guy : It's okay. That's what dads do.

    Grug : That's right! But we can't do that from here. We need one of your ideas. Come on, you can do it.

    Guy : Belt! Emergency Idea Generator, activate!

    [Belt hits him in the head with a rock] 

    Guy : OW! Ooh! I've got it!

  • Grug : Splitting up is a bad idea, it is much safer if we stay together

    [Notices Guy and Eep very close and separates them] 

    Grug : Except for you two. You need to be separate.

  • Grug : Don't. It could be dangerous.

    Eep : Dad, you always say that.

    Guy : Careful.

    Eep : Oh, okay.

    [Grug sighs in exasperation] 

  • Grug : I... have... an... IDEA!

  • Grug : [after Guy hands out shells so they can "call" each other]  I don't see why the kids need their own shells.

  • [repeated line] 

    Grug : Never *not* be afraid!

  • Grug : Three days is not forever!

    Eep : It is with this family.

  • Grug : [On a giant stone lever]  I call this a "Lifterator"

    Gran : I almost feel sorry for him.

    [Grug's invention fails and he is flung into the sky, struck by lightning, then the boulder rolls over him] 

    Gran : Hahaha! No I don't!

  • Grug : What were you doing up there?

    Eep : I don't know.

    Grug : What were you looking for?

    Eep : Nothing.

    Grug : Why did you go there?

    Eep : I don't know!

    Grug : Why don't you know?

  • [repeated line] 

    Grug : [counting everyone]  One, two, three, four, five...


    Grug : six.

  • Grug : We're going tooooo... That mountain. Don't ask me why, just a hunch, just feels right.

    Ugga : Grug, we've never walked that far!

    Thunk : I don't think my feet can go that far.

    Gran : I'll never live long enough to get there.

    Grug : [grinning at Gran's declare]  Lets do it!

  • Grug : [when thunk attempts to eat a large piece of popcorn]  N-no, don't eat it, it's new!

  • Guy : You're being irrational and counter-productive!

    Grug : Big words make me angry, c'mon, keep talking.

  • Grug : I, AM, A, CAVE-MAN!

  • Guy : Your call, Grug.

    Grug : Take us to Tomorrow.

  • Grug : Thunk?

    Thunk : [nervously]  Sorry, Dad.

  • Grug : [from a distance]  GET OUT OF THE WAY!

    Thunk : [to Eep]  Wow, you sound just like him.

    Grug : GET OUT OF THE WAY!

  • Grug : No, no, not cool!
