The Incredibles is a 2004 American computer-animated superhero film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. It was written and directed by Brad Bird, a former director and executive consultant of The Simpsons. It stars an ensemble cast including Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson, Sarah Vowell, Spencer Fox, Jason Lee, Samuel L. Jackson and Elizabeth Peña. The film stars the Parr family, each of whom has superpowers. After the government orders superheroes to live a normal life, Bob Parr (Craig T. Nelson), who formerly went under the superhero alias "Mr. Incredible," secretly returns to being a superhero behind his family's back. At the same time, his kids come to terms with their powers while his wife becomes suspicious of his activities.

The Incredibles was originally developed as a traditionally-animated film for Warner Bros., but after the studio shut down its division for fully animated theatrical features, Bird took the story with him to Pixar, where he reunited with John Lasseter. The Incredibles is the sixth feature film from Pixar. It was presented by Disney and released by Buena Vista Distribution in North America on November 5, 2004, and in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland on November 26 of the same year. It is the first and only full-length Pixar film to feature an entirely human cast of characters.

Plot

On the night of his wedding to Elastigirl, superhero Mr. Incredible takes time to fight crime in the city of Municiberg. While he is attempting to capture the villainous Bomb Voyage during a bank robbery, Buddy Pine, an obsessed fan of Mr. Incredible hoping to become Mr. Incredible's sidekick "IncrediBoy," attempts to help. Buddy's interference almost kills him, and Mr. Incredible is forced to allow Voyage to escape in order to save him. But lawsuits filed by people saved by Mr. Incredible that night produce a public backlash against those with superpowers. These "Supers" are forced to abandon their heroic roles and adapt to a normal, regular life. Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl settle down in suburban Metroville as Bob and Helen Parr and raise a family.

Fifteen years later, their children appear to have super powers as well - the hot-headed Dash possesses super speed, while timid Violet has the ability to turn invisible and create force fields. Their toddler, Jack-Jack, has yet to show any special abilities. Dash and Violet, however, resent living in concealement, especially Dash, who vents his frustration by using his speed to play pranks on his least favorite teacher.

Bob is miserable and frustrated in his insurance job; denied his life as a Super, his only sense of accomplishment comes from authorizing payouts to injured clients. He hates his job not only because he has trouble with clients, but because of his frustrating and heartless boss, Gilbert Huph. As an outlet, he and his best friend, fellow former Super Lucius Best, aka Frozone, sneak off at night to fight petty crimes. Following one such night, he is told to see Huph. During the talk with Huph, Bob sees a man being mugged, but Huph prevents Bob from rescuing the victim. The mugger escapes and Bob is understandably furious, but Huph continues berating him. When Huph mocks the victim, Bob throws him through five walls. Bob later learns that he has lost his job when he visits Huph in the hospital. Rick Decker, an agent friend of Bob's, informs him that not only has he lost his job, but that Decker can't help him anymore as Bob is too expensive for the government. However, he offers Bob one last chance to relocate - "for old times sake" - which Bob turns down.

When Bob returns home, depressed, he discovers a mysterious message from a woman named Mirage, outlining an offer for Mr. Incredible: to stop a rogue robot, the Omnidroid 9000, on a distant island (named "Nomanisan" Island,) for a large sum of money. Bob accepts the job, and though the fight is difficult at first (as Bob is badly out of shape) he is successful and his depression is lifted. On the promise of more work from Mirage, Bob keeps up the pretense of still having his insurance job while he spends the days working himself back up into shape. Bob visits his old friend Edna Mode, who has moved on to designing for supermodels, to get his torn suit repaired. She fashions a new supersuit for Bob, but refuses to add the cape he requested, noting that capes have caused the demise of many other Supers.

Bob soon receives Mirage's next offer and returns to the island where he is attacked by a newer, improved Omnidroid. Bob realizes Buddy Pine, who is now known as Syndrome, is controlling the Omnidroid to get his revenge on Bob for having snubbed him as a sidekick years ago. Bob is forced to flee from Syndrome and the robot. While in hiding, Bob discovers the skeleton of Gazerbeam, a former Super that gives him a clue about Syndrome's plans. Bob sneaks back into the island facilities and cracks Syndrome's supercomputer, from which he discovers to his horror that numerous Supers have lost their lives to the Omnidroids, with each engagement ultimately contributing to the development of less vulnerable Omnidroids.

Meanwhile, Helen has become suspicious of Bob's activities and discovers that he has visited Edna. She finds that Edna, in creating Bob's new suit, has created new suits for each member of the Parr family, including a homing device in each suit. Helen uses this to discover Bob's location on the remote island, but its signal alerts Syndrome and Bob is captured again. Helen, a licensed pilot, procures a jet to find Bob, but finds Dash and Violet have stowed away. When Syndrome sends missiles to shoot the jet down as it nears the island, the three are able to escape using Helen's fireproof suit.

Enraged at the apparent death of his family, Bob tries to grab Syndrome but Mirage puts herself in the way. He threatens to kill Mirage if Syndrome does not release him. Syndrome calls his bluff and Bob, unable to deny his moral code, is unable to kill her. Later, Helen frees Bob from the base while Dash and Violet avoid capture by Syndrome's forces. The four reunite but are re-captured by Syndrome, who reveals that he plans to launch the final Omnidroid to Metroville using a remote control and then act as if he was saving the city in order to deceive the public and earn credibility as a superhero. After the robot is launched, Mirage turns on her boss and helps the Parrs to escape and follow on a second rocket.

The Parrs arrive in Metroville to find the Omnidroid rampaging through the city, having used its ability to learn and cope with opponents to separate Syndrome from his remote control. Assisted by Frozone, the Parrs seize the remote control and take advantage of its design to destroy the Omnidroid. Rick drives them home and tells them that the government will take care of the rest, including the implied possibility of a reconsideration of the Superhero Protection Program.

They get home, where Syndrome, having discovered the Parrs' identity, is attempting to kidnap Jack-Jack so that he can bring him up as his sidekick. As Syndrome flies to his waiting jet, Jack-Jack's innate superhuman power manifests itself as the ability to shape-shift into a number of difficult-to-handle forms, causing Syndrome to drop him. Bob throws Helen into the air to safely catch Jack-Jack, then throws his new sports car at Syndrome's jet, which causes Syndrome's cape to get caught in one of his jet engines, dragging him to his death. Three months later, the Parrs have resumed their normal life, albeit more contentedly with their status quo than before. But when the city is threatened by a new villain called The Underminer, the Parrs prepare to fight together anew.

Cast

  • Craig T. Nelson as Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible: Bob possesses tremendous strength, and heightened resistance to harm. He also has enhanced senses. Syndrome's Operations Kronos Database assigned him a threat rating of 9.1, the highest of any Super Hero. His powers are similar the Marvel Comics superhero The Thing or to the DC Comics superhero Superman in his earliest days in comic books, before he gained the ability to fly and total invulnerability .
  • Holly Hunter as Helen Parr/Elastigirl/Mrs. Incredible: She has superhuman elasticity. Frequently worries for her family's safety. Her powers are similar to the Marvel Comics superhero Mister Fantastic or the DC characters Elongated Man, Elastic Lad, and Plastic Man also comparable to Stretch Armstrong.
  • Sarah Vowell as Violet Parr: She has invisibility and the creation of force fields. Frequently wishes she was "normal". Her powers are similar to the Marvel Comics superhero Invisible Woman.
  • Spencer Fox as Dash Parr: He has superhuman speed and can run on water. Is a competitive fourth grader and frequently wishes to prove that he's special. His name and powers are like the DC Comics superhero Flash or the Marvel character Quicksilver.
  • Eli Fucile and Maeve Andrews as Jack-Jack Parr: Jack-Jack is in all essence a shape-shifter, able to configure his molecules into various forms. In the film, he bursts into flames, turns into metal, and turns into a monster. Later revealed in Jack-Jack Attack (a Pixar short of The Incredibles) to also have the abilities to teleport, levitate, pass through walls, and fire optic blasts. Therefore, his powers are similar to Marvel characters Nightcrawler, Cyclops, Human Torch, Colossus, The Incredible Hulk, Kitty Pryde, among others.
  • Samuel L. Jackson as Lucius Best/Frozone: Best friend of Mr. Incredible. He can create ice and freeze objects by using the moisture in the air, similarly to the Marvel character Iceman. He never displayed the ability to cover himself in, or turn into, ice. Frequently relives the "glory days" with Mr. Incredible, though he is reluctant to take more direct action. Samuel L. Jackson was cast as the voice of Frozone because the film's writer/director wanted Frozone to have "the coolest voice".[2]
  • Jason Lee as Buddy Pine/Syndrome: Mr. Incredible's number one fan, but he grows up to hate him due to the fact that Mr. Incredible wouldn't let him become his sidekick. He serves as the main antagonist of the film. He is the 2nd Pixar antagonist to die (the first being Hopper in A Bug's Life). Syndrome's facial features in the film were designed and based on Brad Bird's.
  • Elizabeth Peña as Mirage: Assistant to Syndrome. She defects and aids the Incredibles shortly after Syndrome shows he has no compassion (when he blows up Helen's plane despite her saying Violet and Dash are on board) and a lack of concern for her life (when Mr. Incredible threatens to crush her to death immediately after she pushes Syndrome out of the way and is grabbed in his place, saving his life).
  • Brad Bird as Edna Mode: Famous designer of super-suits. A little obsessed with her work. During her forced retirement from hero work, Edna hosts modeling shows for supermodels. However, deep down, Edna has a great disdain for supermodels, citing them as "spoiled, stupid little stick figures with poofy lips who think only about themselves," when, as she says referring to supers, she used to design "for Gods!" Edna had established a "No Capes" rule in her superhero costume designs for safety reasons (Capes had been responsible for the deaths of five known Supers), which proved true in Syndrome's eventual demise.
  • Bud Luckey as Rick Dicker: a wealthy agent who's job is to clean up the Super accidents although it was costing the Government too much money and exhaustion but when Bob Parr throws his Heartless boss Gilbert Huph through five walls Rick had no choice but couldn't help Bob anymore but he did offer Bob one last chance for relocation which Bob turned down. He is last seen driving the Parrs home after defeating the Omnidroid 9000.

Production

Brad Bird's inspiration

Brad Bird, writer and director of the film, was inspired by his own life during the creation of The Incredibles. Brad Bird's situation during the time was very similar to that of Bob's in The Incredibles. Bird wanted to do what he loved: make films. Yet each of his films would eventually fall by the wayside at some point during their development. While this was happening, he was also trying to focus on his new family that demanded more of his time. He felt that if he focused too much on one, that he would completely fail at the other. Brad Bird stated, "Consciously, this was just a funny movie about superheroes. But I think that what was going on in my life definitely filtered into the movie."[3]

Challenges during production

Upon Disney accepting the project, Brad Bird was asked to bring in his own team for the production. He brought up a core group of people he worked with on The Iron Giant. Because of this, many 2D artists had to make the shift to 3D, including Brad Bird himself. Brad Bird wrote the script without knowing the limitations or concerns that went hand in hand with the medium of computer animation. As a result, this was to be the most complex film for Pixar yet. It was planned to be 15 minutes longer than anything else Pixar had created.

Bird's story was filled with elements that were difficult to animate with CGI at the time. Creating an all-human cast required creating new technology to animate detailed human anatomy, clothing and realistic skin and hair. Long hair had never been done by Pixar until this point. Disney was initially reluctant to make the film because of these issues, feeling a live action film would be preferable, though Pixar executive John Lasseter vetoed this. Brad Bird recalls, "Basically, I came into a wonderful studio, frightened a lot of people with how many presents I wanted for Christmas, and then got almost everything I asked for."[4]

In a 2009 interview, Up producer Jonas Rivera discussed how Bird's approach to filmmaking differed from the process previously used by Pixar:

We almost treat it like a live action movie, we build a set – say, Andy's room in Toy Story – and we get a camera, we actually 'location-scout' it, check out all the angles with the characters on the bed, or whatever, and we take that back and start building a layout based on that, and shots come and go. Whereas Bird is like, 'This is the exact shot I want, then I want this shot, and then this shot, and I don't want to see one pixel over to the right.' … There was a reason for it. The scope of The Incredibles was so big: for example, Monsters Inc had 31 sets, The Incredibles had 89, that's a lot of work. Brad was willing to sacrifice flexibility for scope.[5]

John Barry was the first choice to do the film's score, with a trailer of the film given a rerecording of Barry's theme to On Her Majesty's Secret Service. However Barry did not wish to duplicate some of earlier soundtracks[6] with the score given to Michael Giacchino.[7]

Reception

Critics

The Incredibles received near universal critical acclaim, receiving a 97% "Certified Fresh" rating at Rotten Tomatoes[8] which made the movie the fifteenth greatest action film of all time and the only one of Top 20 with more than 100 reviews.[9] Metacritic indicates The Incredibles "universal acclaim" with a 90 out of 100 rating.[10] Critic Roger Ebert awarded the film three-and-a-half stars out of four, writing that the film "alternates breakneck action with satire of suburban sitcom life" and is "another example of Pixar's mastery of popular animation." Rolling Stone gave the movie three-and-a-half stars and called the movie "one of the year's best" and said that it "doesn't ring cartoonish, it rings true."[11] Also giving the film three-and-a-half stars, People magazine found that The Incredibles "boasts a strong, entertaining story and a truckload of savvy comic touches."[12]

Eleanor Ringel Gillespie of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution was bored by the film's recurring pastiches of earlier action films, concluding, "the Pixar whizzes do what they do excellently; you just wish they were doing something else."[13] Similarly, Jessica Winter of the Village Voice criticized the film for playing as a standard summer action film, despite being released in early November. Her review, titled as "Full Metal Racket," noted that "The Incredibles announces the studio's arrival in the vast yet overcrowded Hollywood lot of eardrum-bashing, metal-crunching action sludge."

Makers of the 2005 film Fantastic Four were forced to make significant script changes and add more special effects because of similarities to the storyline of The Incredibles.[14]

Release

Despite concerns that the film would receive underwhelming results,[15] the film grossed $70,467,623 in its opening weekend from 7,600 screens at 3,933 theaters, averaging $17,917 per theater or $9,272 per screen, the highest opening weekend gross for a Pixar film. The film was also #1 in its second weekend, grossing another $50,251,359, dropping just 29 percent, and easily outgrossing new animated opener The Polar Express. The film ultimately grossed $261,441,092, the third-highest gross for a Pixar film behind Finding Nemo (336 mil.) and Up (293 mil.) and the fifth-highest grossing film of 2004.[16] Worldwide, the film grossed $631,436,092, also the third-highest gross for a Pixar film behind Finding Nemo (866 mil.) and Up (727 mil.) again, and ranking fourth for the year.[17] The film was also the second-highest grossing animated film that year behind Shrek 2.

It had its network television premiere on Thanksgiving Day 2007 on NBC sponsored by Target and its basic cable premiere on ABC Family as part of The 25 Days of Christmas in December 2007, and its second cable showing on Disney Channel as part of the No Ordinary Friday on February 1, 2008.

This was also the first Pixar film to be given a PG rating.

Top ten lists

The film appeared on many critics' top ten lists of the best films of 2004.[18]

There are also several Easter eggs in the menus[20]; the one on the main menu shows every door, button and explosion in the movie. Some of the other menus have more than one easter egg movie; which one plays appears to be a random choice. One of the eggs on the first Index menu is a short sockpuppet version of the movie.

The film was also released on UMD for the Sony PSP and in a limited edition VHS version, and was the last Disney/Pixar film to be issued in the VHS format. All future Disney/Pixar titles beginning with Cars would only be released on DVD and Blu-ray.[citation needed]

Merchandising

Several companies released promotional products related to the movie. Dark Horse Comics released a limited series of comic books based on the movie. Kellogg's released an Incredibles-themed cereal, as well as promotional Pop Tarts and fruit snacks, all proclaiming an "Incrediberry Blast" of flavor. Furthermore, in the weeks before the movie's opening, there were also promotional tie-ins with SBC Communications (using Dash to promote the "blazing-fast speed" of its SBC Yahoo! DSL service) and McDonald's. Toy maker Hasbro produced a series of action figures and toys based on the film, although the line was not as successful as the film itself.

In Europe, Kinder chocolate eggs contained small plastic toy characters from the film.

In Belgium, car manufacturer Opel sold special The Incredibles editions of their cars.

In the United Kingdom, Telewest promoted blueyonder internet services with branding from the film, including television adverts starring characters from the film.

In all merchandising outside of the film itself, Elastigirl is referred to as Mrs. Incredible. This is due to a licensing agreement between Disney/Pixar and DC Comics, who has a character named Elasti-Girl (a member of the Doom Patrol). The DC Comics character is able to grow and shrink at will from microscopic size to thousands of feet tall.

Comics

In July 2008, it was announced that a series of comic books based on The Incredibles would be published by BOOM! Studios in collaboration with Disney Publishing by the end of the year.[21]

The first two miniseries by BOOM! were The Incredibles: Family Matters by Mark Waid and Marcio Takara, which was published from March to June 2009, and collected into a trade paperback published in July of that year. The next miniseries, The Incredibles: City of Incredibles, by Waid, Landry Walker, and artists Marcio Takara and Ramanda Kamarga, was published later that same year.

Video game

A video game based on the film was released for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, Nintendo GameCube, Game Boy Advance, PC, Apple Macintosh, and mobiles. Though based on the movie, several key scenes are altered from the original script.

A second game, The Incredibles: Rise of the Underminer, was released for PlayStation 2, GameCube, Xbox, Mac OS X, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, and Windows. Taking place immediately after the movie, the sequel focuses on Mr. Incredible and Frozone as they do battle with the megalomaniacal mole, The Underminer.

Awards

The film won the Academy Award in 2004 for Best Animated Feature (the second out of five Pixar Animation Studios feature films to do so) as well as Best Achievement in Sound Editing. It also received nominations for Best Original Screenplay (for writer/director Brad Bird) and Best Achievement in Sound, but did not win.

The film was awarded the 2005 Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form.

These and other awards place it among the most-honored animation films in recent history.[22]

  • India-Golf Niner-Niner, transmitting in the blind guard — disengage, repeat, disengage! Disengage, repeat disengage! Friendlies at two-zero miles south-southwest of your position, angels 10, track east, over!
  • Mayday! Mayday! India-Golf Niner-Niner is buddy-spiked! Abort-abort, there are children aboard this airplane! Abort-abort-abort! Abort-abort!! [Helen desperately hails Nomanisan, explosion]
  • [Violet's trying to apologize for not being able to rescue them earlier] Shhh. 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.
  • [hands Violet and Dash masks] Your identity is your most precious possession. Protect it.
  • Remember the bad guys, on those shows you used to watch on Saturday mornings? [Dash and Violet nod excitedly] Well, these guys are not like those guys. [Their faces fall] They won't exercise restraint because you're children. They will kill you if they get the chance. Do not give them that chance.
  • [just prior to battle] We're superheroes. What could happen?

Frozone

  • Super-ladies, they're always trying to tell you their secret identity. [stage whisper] 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-lightning babe? That's all right with me. I'm good. I'm good.
  • He starts monologuing! He starts, like, this prepared speech about how feeble I am compared to him. How inevitable my defeat is, how the world will soon be his, yadda-yadda-yadda...Yammerin'! I mean, the guy has me on a platter, and he won't shut up!
  • To tell you the truth, I'd rather go bowling. Look - what if we actually did what our wives think we're doing? Just to shake things up.
  • I don't see anyone from the old days, Bob. Just you. And we're pushing our luck as it is.
  • Aw - now... that ain't right!
  • We look like bad guys! Incompetent bad guys!
  • [Police officer points his gun at Bob and Lucius] Police Officer: FREEZE!
  • [Lucius gets an idea and picks up a cup and starts filling it with water]
  • Police officer: FREEZE!
  • I'm thirsty.
  • Police officer: I SAID FREEZE!
  • I'm just getting a drink.
  • [Lucius drinks the water from the cup]
  • Police Officer: All right! You've had your drink! Now, I want you to--
  • I know, I know. Freeze! [freezes the police officer]
  • I wanted to go bowling!

Dash

  • You always say, "Do your best," but you don't really mean it. Why can't I do the best I can do?
  • She'd eat if we were having Tonyloaf!
  • We're dead! We're dead! We survived but we're dead!
  • You wanna go toward the people that tried to kill us?
  • And those guys tried to kill us! That was the best vacation ever! [sighs] I love our family.
  • [after a huge explosion destroys the Parrs' house] Does this mean we have to move again?
  • Let's do that again!
  • [trying on his new super-suit] The Dash likes.
  • I'm alive! Yeee-HA! Wahoo! [Notices bad guys have spotted him] Uh oh!
  • Violet?
  • Hey, no force fields!

Violet Parr

  • I said, shut up, you little insect!
  • Mom? Mom, w-what happened on the plane, I--I-I'm sorry, I wanted to help--I-I mean, when you asked me to, to--I'm sorry.
  • [As Dash sprints out of an exploding cave] What did you do?!
  • Well, I think Dad has made some excellent progress today, but I think it's time we wind down now.
  • I feel different. Is different okay?
  • [While invisible in front of Tony Rydinger] He looked at me.
  • [While Tony is trying to ask her out] Shh... I like movies. I'll buy the popcorn, okay?
  • Dash, remember what Mom said. Dash, run. Run!
  • You don't have to. Just use the coordinates from the last launch. [Violet advising on rockets]
  • But you said never to use--
  • It blew up!

Syndrome (Buddy Pine / IncrediBoy)

  • All I wanted was to help you! I only wanted to help, and what did you say to me?! (Remembers Mr. Incredible saying, "Fly home, Buddy. I work alone."; cuts to furious-looking young Buddy, staring up at a Mr. Incredible poster in a frame and then tearing it down) It tore me apart. But I learned an important lesson: You can't count on anyone. Especially your heroes! [Mr. Incredible: I'm sorry.] See? Now you respect me, because I'm a threat. That's the way it works. It turns out there are lots of people, whole countries who want respect, and they will pay through the nose to get it. How do you think I got rich? I invented weapons. And now I have a weapon that only I can defeat. And when I unleash it-- (Mr. Incredible throws a log at him. Syndrome hits him with zero-point energy) [chuckling] You sly dog! You got me monologuing! I can't believe it.
  • You, sir, truly are Mr. Incredible! You know, I was right to idolize you. I always knew you were tough, but tricking the probe by hiding under the bones of another super?! Oh, man! I'm still geeking out about it!
  • I knew you couldn't do it, even when you've got nothing to lose. You're weak. And I've outgrown you.
  • Time out!
  • [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! Oh-ho, this is just too good!
  • I'll give them heroics. I'll give them the most spectacular heroics they've ever seen! And when I'm old and I've had my fun, I'll sell my inventions so everyone can be superheroes! Everyone can be super! And when everyone's super, [laughs maniacally] no one will be.
  • Am I good enough now? Who's super now?! I'm Syndrome, your nemesis and-- [He then realizes he accidentally threw Mr. Incredible into the distance; to himself] Oh, brilliant!
  • [said while kidnapping Jack-Jack] You took away my future. I'm simply returning the favor. Oh, no, don't worry, I'll be a good mentor: supportive, encouraging, everything you weren't. And in time, who knows? He might make a good sidekick.
  • [last words] This isn't the end of it! I will get your son eventually! I'll get your son! [laughs, then realizes Mr. Incredible has thrown his car at him] Oh, no! [gets knocked out of his plane and screams as he is sucked into a jet engine]
  • [in the short "Jack-Jack Attack, when lying to Kari McKeen that the "S" on his costume stands for "Sitter"] Originally, I was going to have the initials for "babysitter," but then I would have been going around wearing a big "BS," and you can understand why I couldn't go with that!

Mirage

  • Hello, Mr. Incredible. Yes, we know who you are. Rest assured, your secret is safe with us.
  • We have something in common. According to the government, neither of us exists.
  • Please pay attention, as this message is classified and will not be repeated. I represent a top secret division of the government, designing and testing experimental technology, and we are in need of your unique abilites.
  • The supers aren't gone, Mister Incredible. You're still here. You can still do great things. Or...you can listen to police scanners. Your choice.
  • [referring to Syndrome] He's attracted to power. So am I. It's a...weakness we share.
  • [about Mr. Incredible] He's not weak, you know. Valuing life is not a weakness. And disregarding it is not strength.
  • [to Syndrome] Next time you gamble, bet your own life!
  • You have 24 hours to respond. Think about it.
  • Say please.
  • Everything at the table was grown right here. How does it compare?
  • [Bob is choking her] Family...survived the crash! They're here on the island! [Bob lets go; she gasps and coughs]
  • There isn't much time.
  • He's not alone. The fat guy is still with him. They're just...talking.
  • Trust me. This is the one he's been looking for.

Dialogue

[Mr. Incredible is about to go to the scene of a tour bus robbery when Young Buddy enters the Incredibile.]
Young Buddy: Cool! Ready for takeoff!
Mr. Incredible: What the-- who are you supposed to be?
Young Buddy: Well, I'm IncrediBoy!
Mr. Incredible: What? No. You're that kid from the fan club. Brophy-- Br-- Brody-- Bu-- BUDDY! Buddy...!
Young 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 is--
Young Buddy: No no no. You you don't have to worry about training me. I know all your moves, your crime-fighting style, favorite catch phrases, everything! I'm your #1 fan!
[Buddy is ejected from the Incredible, and the car speeds away.]
Young Buddy: Hey! Hey wait!

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

[Mr. Incredible confronts a French, mime-like villain named Bomb Voyage.]
Mr. Incredible: Bomb Voyage!
Bomb Voyage: Monsieur Incroyable...!
Young Buddy': [offscreen] And IncrediBoy!
[Buddy has broke through the window.]
Bomb Voyage: (English accent:) "IncrediBoy?!"
'Young 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 home, Buddy.
'Young Buddy': [quickly looks up at Mr. Incredible] What?
Mr. Incredible: Now.
Bomb Voyage: Petit naïf libe...! [Little oaf!]
[Buddy looks at Bomb Voyage]
Young Buddy: Can we talk? [pulls Mr. Incredible off to the side] You always, always say, "Be true to yourself.", but you never say which part of yourself to be true to! Well I *finally* figured out who I am! [walks up to Mr. Incredible] I am your ward: IncrediBoy!
Mr. Incredible: And now, you have officially carried it too far, Buddy. [grabs Bomb Voyage before he can escape]
Bomb Voyage: [loud grunt]
Young Buddy: This is because I don't 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.
Bomb Voyage: Et ton costume est complètement ridicule! [And your outfit is completely ridiculous!]
Young Buddy: Ju ju just gimme one chance! I-- I'll show you! I'll go get the police!
[Bomb Voyage has attached a bomb to Buddy's cape; Mr. Incredible notices]
Mr. Incredible: Buddy! No!
Young Buddy: It'll only take a second, really!
Mr. Incredible: NO! STOP! [lets Bomb Voyage go] 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.
Young Buddy: I can help you! You're making a mista-- [is shoved into a police car] Hey!
Mr. incredible: [to police officers] Now, the explosion in the bank was caused by a Bomb Voyage. Now, I think we might be able to nab him if we set up a perimeter--
Police Officer: Wait. You mean he got away?
Mr. Incredible: Uh-huh. [gestures to Buddy sitting angrily in the car] Skippy here made sure of that.
Young Buddy: IncrediBoy!
Mr. Incredible: YOU'RE NOT AFFILIATED WITH ME!

[Bob Parr arrives at the church for his wedding at the last second.]
Bob: Hey, is the night still young?
Lucius: You're very late.
Bob: How do I look? Good?
Lucius: Oh, the mask! You still got the mask.
Bob: Showtime!
Minister: Robert Parr, will you have this woman to be your lawfully-wedded wife?
Helen: [whispering] You're late. When you asked me if I was doing anything later, I didn't realize you'd actually forgotten. I thought it was playful banter.
Bob: It was playful banter.
Helen: Cutting it kind of close, don't you think?
Bob: You need to be more flexible.
Helen: I love you, but if we're gonna make this work, you gotta be more than Mr. Incredible. You know that.

Mr. Incredible: Hey, I saved your life!
Mr. Sansweet: You didn't save my life! You ruined my death! That's what you did!
Mr. Incredible: Listen, pal--
Lawyer: [restrains Mr. Incredible] My client has no further comment at this time.

Mr. Huph: PAAAAAAAAAAAARR!!! [Bob gets startled] You authorized payment on the Walker policy?!
Bob Parr: Someone broke into their house, Mr. Huph. Their policy clearly covers--
Mr Huph: I I-- I-- I don't wanna know about their coverage, Bob! Don't tell me about their coverage! Tell me how you're keeping Insuricare in the black! Tell me how that's possible, with you writing checks to every Harry Hardluck and Sally Sobstory, THAT GIVES YOU A PHONE CALL! [storms out of Bob's office in a huff]

Voice: Morning break is over. Morning break is over. [Bob's pencils drop on the floor]


[After Dash has been sent to the Principal's office]
Helen: What's this all about? Has Dash done something wrong?
Principal: Well--
Bernie "Bernard": [Pompously] He's a disruptive influence, and he openly mocks me in front of the class.
Dash: [Sullenly] He says.
Bernie: Look, I know it's you! He puts thumbtacks on my stool!
Helen: You saw him do this?
Bernie: Well, no, actually not.
Helen: Oh - then how do you know it was him?
Bernie: [Brandishing a videotape] I hid a camera! [Dash looks worried; Helen glares at Dash] And this time I got him!
[Bernie plays the tape; as he is sitting down, a barely distinguishable blur passes between Dash's desk and Bernie's seat]
Bernie: He moves! Right there! [Helen, Dash and the Principal squint at the camera, bewildered] What, you don't see it?
[Exasperated, he rewinds the tape and points at Dash, who moves imperceptibly]
Bernie: Right - right there! No; right - there! Right as I'm sitting down! I dunno! I dunno how he does it, but there's no tack on my stool before he moves, and after he moves, there's a tack! Coincidence? I think NOT!
[Helen gives an incredulous and confusing look at the principal]
Principal: [Gently] Uh, Bernie...
Bernie: Don't "Bernie" me! [Shrieking] This little rat is guilty!
Principal: [Resigned, apologetic] You and your son can go now, Mrs. Parr. I'm sorry for the trouble.
[Helen and Dash leave; once his back is turned, Dash grins triumphantly]
Bernie: You're letting him go again?! He's guilty! You can see it on his smug little face! [Throwing a tantrum] Guilty, I say! Guilty! Guilty, guilty!
[Helen closes the door, blotting out his voice]

Helen: Dash, this is the third time this year you've been sent to the office. We need to find a better outlet. A more constructive outlet.
Dash: [slyly] Maybe I could, if you'd let me go out for sports.
Helen: Honey, you know why we can't do that.
Dash: But I promise I'll slow up! I'll only be the best by a tiny bit!
Helen: Dashiell Robert Parr, you are an incredibly competitive boy. And a bit of a showoff. The last thing you need is temptations.
Dash: You always say, "Do your best," but you don't really mean it. Why can't I do the best that I can do?
Helen: Right now, honey, the world just wants us to fit in, and to fit in, we just gotta be like everybody else.
Dash: Dad always said our powers were nothing to be ashamed of. Our powers made us special.
Helen: Everyone's special, Dash.
Dash: [sullenly] Which is another way of saying no one is.

Helen: Dash got sent to the office again.
Bob: [distracted] Good, good.
Helen: No, Bob, that's bad.
Bob: What?
Helen: [slowly] Dash got sent to the office again.
Bob: What? What for?
Dash: Nothing!
Helen: He put a tack on the teacher's chair, *during* class.
Dash: Nobody saw me. You could barely even see it on the tape.
Bob: They had a tape, and you still got away with it? Whoa! You must've been bookin'! How fast do you think you were going?

[Dash jumps 3 times in chair]

Helen: Bob, we are not encouraging this!

[Bob Parr and Lucius Best, in ski masks, are rescuing people from a burning building.]
Bob: Can't you put this out?
Lucius: I can't lay down a layer thick enough. It's evaporating too fast!
Bob: Well, what's that mean?!
Lucius: It means it's hot, and I'm dehydrated, Bob!
Bob: You're out of ice?! You can't run out of ice! I thought you could use the water in the air!
Lucius: There is no water in this air! What's your excuse, run out of muscle?!
Bob: I can't just go smashing through walls! The building's getting weaker by the second, it's gonna come down on top of us!
Lucius: I WANTED TO GO BOWLING!

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.".

Mr. Huph: Sit down, Bob. [Bob sits down, and Mr. Huph fixes one of his pencils to get back in line with the other pencils]
Mr. Huph: I'm not happy, Bob. Not... happy. [gets off of his chair] Ask me why.
Bob Parr: Okay. Why?
Mr. Huph: "Why" what? Be specific, Bob.
Bob Parr: Why are you unhappy?
Mr. Huph: Your customers make me unhappy.
Bob Parr: What? You've gotten complaints?
Mr. Huph: Complaints I can handle. What I *can't* handle is your customers' inexplicable knowledge of lnsuricare's inner workings! They're experts! EXPERTS, Bob! Exploiting every loophole, dodging every obstacle! They're penetrating the bureaucracy!
Bob Parr: Did I do something illegal?
Mr. Huph: [reluctantly] No.
Bob Parr: Are you saying we shouldn't help our customers?
Mr. Huph: [frustrated sigh] The law requires that I answer, "No.".
Bob Parr: We're supposed to help people!
Mr. Huph: We're supposed to help OUR people! Starting with our stockholders, Bob! Who's helping *them* out, huh?! [sighs, regaining control] You know, Bob... [straightens a document on the front of his desk] a company--
Bob Parr: [finishing Mr. Huph's sentence] --Is like an enormous clock.
Mr. Huph: --Is like an enormous cl-- yes! Precisely! It only works if all the little cogs mesh together! Now, a clock needs to be cleaned, well-lubricated, and wound tight. The best clocks have jewel movements, cogs that fit, that cooperate by design. [chuckles] Forgive me if I'm being metaphorical, Bob. You know what I mean by cooperative cogs? [Bob sees man being mugged out of window] Bob? Bob? [Grabs Bob by the chin] Look at me when I'm talking to you, Parr!
Bob Parr: That man out there. He needs help!
Mr. Huph: Do not change the subject, Bob! We're discussing your actions!
Bob Parr: HE is getting MUGGED!
Mr. Huph: Well, let's hope we don't cover him!
Bob Parr: I'll be right back. [starts to leave]
Mr. Huph: Stop right now, or YOU'RE FIRED! [Bob stops, and Mr. Huph smiles evilly] Close the door. [Bob hesitantly closes door] Get over here, *now*. [Bob releases his hand from the now-crushed door knob, and stands before Mr. Huph] I'm not happy, Bob. Not happy. [Bob sees the mugger run off]
Bob Parr: [sternly, through his teeth] He got away.
Mr. Huph: Good thing, too. Heh! You were this close to losing your j-- AAAGH!
[Bob strangles Mr. Huph and throws him through 5 offices, also breaking half of the metal Insuricare logo. Everyone stares at him, astonished, through the holes in the walls.]
Bob Parr: Uh-oh.

Bob Parr: What are you waiting for?
Boy on tricycle: I don't know, something amazing, I guess.
Bob Parr: Me too, kid.

Violet Parr: Normal? What do you know about "normal"? What does anyone in this family know about "normal"? We act normal, Mom; I want to be normal! The only normal one is Jack-Jack, and he's not even toilet-trained!
Dash Parr: Lucky--I meant about being normal.

Mirage: I've got to warn you, it's a learning robot. Every moment you spend fighting it only increases its knowledge of how to beat you.
Mr. Incredible: Shut it down, do it quickly, don't destroy it.
Mirage: And don't die.
Mr. Incredible: Great. Thanks.

Edna: No capes.
Bob: Isn't that my decision?
Edna: Do you remember Thunderhead? Tall, storm powers? Nice man, good with kids.
Bob: Listen, E--
Edna: November 15th of '58! All was well, another day saved, when his cape snagged on a missile fin.
Bob: [chuckles] Thunderhead was not the brightest bulb —
Edna: Stratogale! April 23rd, '57! Cape caught in a jet turbine!
Bob: E, you can't generalize about--
Edna: [rapidfire] Metaman: express elevator! Dynaguy: snag on takeoff! Splashdown: sucked into a vortex! No capes!! [calmer] Now do not worry, your new suit will be ready before your next assignment.
Bob: You know I'm retired from hero work.
Edna: As am I, Robert, yet here we are.

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, and can also withstand a temperature of over 1000 degrees. Completely bulletproof. 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? Well, he'll look fabulous anyway.

Your boy's suit I designed to withstand enormous friction without heating up or wearing out. A useful feature. Your daughter's suit was tricky. But I finally created a sturdy material that will disappear completely as she does. Your suit can stretch as far as you can, without injuring yourself, and still retain its shape. Virtually indestructible...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. Well, darling? What do you think?


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: [referring 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?

[Helen emerges from her plane's restroom after changing into her superhero costume, and tosses her bag onto a supposedly empty seat. It lands on an invisible Violet.]
Violet: Ow!
Helen: [furious] 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!
Helen: Dash?!
Violet: [over Dash] ...And I thought he'd try to sneak on the plane so I came in...
Dash: [over Violet] 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%, all-yours, all-the-time IDEA!
Helen: Wait a minute, wait a minute - you left Jack-Jack alone?!
Violet: [sarcastically] Yes, Mom, I'm completely stupid. Of course we got a sitter!...
Dash: [over Violet] No, we got someone, Mom! Somebody great! We wouldn't do that!
Violet: [over Dash] Do you think I'm totally irresponsible?! Thanks a lot!

[Mr. Incredible grabs Mirage after Syndrome lets the plane carrying his family blow up.]
Mr. Incredible: Release me. Now!
Syndrome: Or what?
Mr. Incredible: I'll crush her.
Syndrome: That sounds a little dark for you. Eh, go ahead.
[Mirage stares at him in shock.]
Mr. Incredible: It'll be easy, like breaking a toothpick.
Syndrome: Heh, show me. [Bob eventually lets go] I knew you couldn't do it. Even when you have nothing to lose. You are weak! And I've outgrown you!

Helen: I think your father is in trouble.
Violet: In case you didn't notice, Mom, we're not doing so hot either.
Helen: I'm going to look for him. And that means you're in charge until I get back, Violet.
Dash: What?!
Violet: [smugly] You heard her.
Helen: [hands them masks] Put these on. Your identity is your most valuable possession. Protect it. And if anything goes wrong, use your powers.
Violet: [confused] But you said never to use--
Helen: I know what I said! [sighs] Remember the bad guys on those shows you used to watch on Saturday mornings? [Dash and Violet nod excitedly] Well, these guys are not like those guys. [Their faces fall.] They won't exercise restraint because you're children. They will kill you if they get the chance. Do not give them that chance.
Violet: Mom?
Helen: Vi, I'm counting on you.
Violet: There's something I--
Helen: I'm counting on you. Be strong. Dash, if anything goes wrong, I want you to run as fast as you can.
Dash: [excited] As fast as I can?!
Helen: As fast as you can. Stay hidden. Keep each other safe. I'll be back by morning. [hugs them both and runs off]

Violet: What do you think is going on around here? You think we're on vacation or something? Mom and Dad's lives could be in jeopardy! Or worse...their marriage!
Dash: Their marriage?! So, the bad guys are trying to wreck Mom and Dad's marriage.
Violet: Oh, forget it. You're so immature.

[Violet creates a force-field "bubble" protecting herself and Dash from gunfire.]
Dash: How are you doing that?!
Violet: I don't know!
Dash: Whatever you do, don't stop! [starts running, causing the bubble to move with them]

Lucius: [Has just noticed the Omni-Droid rampaging through the city with a military helicopter chasing and shooting at it, but the bullets from it are not destroying the Omni-Droid, and is looking for his suit]Honey?
Honey: What?
Lucious: Where's my super-suit?
Honey: What?!
Lucius: WHERE-IS-MY-SUPER-SUIT?!
Honey: I, uh, put it away!
[Helicopter crashes litterally and blows up in Lucius' face]
Lucius: Where?!
Honey: Why do you need to know?!
[Lucius runs through the house apartment looking for his suit.]
Lucius: I need it!
Honey: Nuh-uh! Don't you think about runnin' off and doin' no derring-do! We've been plannin' this dinner for two months!
Lucius: The public is in danger!
Honey: My evening's in danger!
Lucius: YOU TELL ME WHERE MY SUIT IS, WOMAN! WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE GREATER GOOD!
Honey: "Greater good"?! I am your wife! I'm the greatest good you are ever gonna get!

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 thought there was going to be 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!

Bob: Wait here and stay hidden. I'm going in (to fight the Omnidroid).
Helen: While what, I watch helplessly from the sidelines? I don't think so.
Bob: I'm asking you to wait with the kids.
Helen: And I'm telling you, not a chance! You're my husband, I'm with you. "For better or worse."
Bob: I have to do this alone.
Helen: What is this to you? Playtime?
Bob: No.
Helen: So you can be Mr. Incredible again?
Bob: No!
Helen: Then what?
Bob: I'm not... I'm not strong enough!
Helen: "Strong enough"? And this will make you stronger?!
Bob: Yes-- No!
Helen: That's what this is, some sort of workout?!
Bob: [shakes her violently] I can't lose you again!! [pause] I can't. Not again. I'm not... strong enough.
Helen: [kisses him passionately] If we work together, you won't have to be.
Bob: I don't know what will happen.
Helen: Hey, we're superheroes. What could happen?

Kari: Won't that be fun?

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… sitter! Yeah, sitter. Heh. Originally, I was gonna have initials for "baby sitter", but then I would have been going around wearing a big "B.S.", and [laughing] you understand why I couldn't go with that.
