You know, my mother once told me that bad news was just good news in disguise.

Ice Age: Continental Drift is a 2012 American 3-D computer-animated adventure/comedy film directed by Steve Martino and Mike Thurmeier.

It is the fourth installment of the Ice Age series, being produced by Blue Sky Studios and distributed by 20th Century Fox, and the first sequel not to be directed by Carlos Saldanha. It was the second Ice Age that utilises Digital 3D. It is scheduled to be released in the US on July 13, 2012, three to six years after its predecessors The Meltdown and Dawn of the Dinosaurs, and ten years after the release of the original Ice Age. This was the first Ice Age film to be shot in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio. A fifth film, titled Ice Age: Collision Course, is set to be released on July 22, 2016.

When the Earth falls apart, history's greatest heroes will keep it together.(taglines)


  • [referring to Peaches] No teenager is ever up early.
  • [to Crash and Eddie] You two were supposed to be responsible uncles!
  • [as the ice shelf breaks off] Stay alive! No matter how long it takes, I WILL FIND YOU!
  • [shouting] How big is this OCEAN?!
  • [kind of dryly; to Gutt] Look, as much as I'm tempted to join a monkey, the Easter Bunny and a giant bag of pudding, I'll pass. No one is gonna stop me from getting back to my family.
  • [to Sid, Diego and Granny] No! They may look real, but they're not. They're going to destroy the ship.
  • You know, sometimes, it pays to weigh 11 TONS! [catapults Captain Gutt towards him] Bon voyage, Monkey-boy! [strikes Gutt with a log, sending him flying away]
  • Huh?! No, no. They're not real. [to Sid, Diego and Granny] They're monsters, they're sirens! Don't listen to them! [singing] Who can take the sunrise? Sprinkle it with dew…


  • Deep down I knew I wasn't abandoned.
  • We fought dinosaurs in ice age! It made no sense, but it was exciting!
  • If I don't make it, find me a wife and tell her I love her!
  • Did somebody hail a whale?


  • I don't know what's wrong with me, I can't eat, I can't sleep. I think I'm coming down with something.
  • [to Sid's family; after the log-sled ride] That was fun. Now, who should I eat first?
  • [After saving Shira] You're welcome. So, care to join our "scurvy crew"?
  • [After Granny jumps in the water, spreading oil all around and killing nearby fishes and a shark] There's your proof.


  • She's just upset, honey. [to her daughter] Peaches, it's not the end of the world.
  • Hey! Your father is the toughest, most stubborn mammoth I've ever met. He'll come back for us. [hugs Peaches] That's a promise.


  • OK, So tell me, when exactly will I be allowed to hang out with boys?
  • How could you embarrass me in front of my friends?
  • Well I wish you weren't my father!
  • Our home is gone. Where do we go now?


  • [referring to her and Sid] They think we're screw-ups and we can't do anything right.
  • Has anyone seen Precious? It's her feeding time.
  • Ha, who says old ladies can't drive?
  • [angrily] I'll bury y'all and dance on your grave!
  • [seeing the narwhals] Y'all got some ugly goldfish.
  • [Referring to Sid, to Manny] I'll push him overboard. You guys say it was an accident.
  • So long, banana breath! Thanks for the ship!

Captain Gutt[edit]

  • I need warriors, and all I have are kitty cats and bunny rabbits!
  • Grab your weapons, mates! [as his crew raises their weapons; Flynn raises a spoon] Not the spoon, Flynn! [Flynn chips off the blunt part of the spoon, making it into a dagger]
  • Oh, no! It's been a diversion! [Flynn: I know! I'm having a blast!] No, pinhead! THEY'RE STEALING MY SHIP!
  • That mammoth has taken my ship, my bounty, and now the loyalty of my crew! I will destroy him! And everything he loves!
  • Sacrificing yourself for your daughter. How touching. And predictable.
  • I don't think so. You destroyed everything I had! I'm just returning the favor.
  • Told ya, tubby! You shouldn't have messed with the master of the seas!
  • [Last words before his death] Aye, aye...


  • [first lines; sees Manny, Sid and Diego] Hey, they look fluffy.
  • [the fruit from Flynn's plate is missing] Where's my booty, has anyone seen it?
  • [before Captain Gutt sings "Master of the Seas"] Oh! Captain's going to sing a shanty!
  • [panicking] They sank our battleship, what are we gonna do? We're all gonna drown!
  • And a seal and a kangaroo!
  • I know; I'm having a blast.
  • Oh, no, he's gone forever! [Captain Gutt returns with the new ship] Oh! There he is.
  • [to Manny] You remember us? We're the bad guys.
  • [last word before his defeat; to Precious] Ooh! This feels so good! Thank you, Mister Whale.


  • Don't call me kitty!
  • [Reffering to Gutt] You know you won't beat him.
  • You're pretty soft for a saber.
  • Your little bunny nose wiggles in the cutest way when you're mad!


  • Buck: [first lines of the film, riding Rudy] YEE-HAW!!!!
  • Raz: G'day, Mate.
  • Ariscratle: Stop, brother! Rise above this base desire. Be more than a rodent.
  • Louis: You never leave your friend behind.
  • Milton: [about Granny] And warn the community. She tends to wander!
  • Squint: Hit the mammoth, win a prize!
  • Milton: We just knew Sid would want to see his poor dear Granny before... her time is up.
  • Gupta: [to Captain Gutt] Should I fly the white, Captain?
  • Silas: It's a huge bounty, Mon Capitaine. 4 passengers, ripe for the taking.



Peaches: Okay, so tell me, when exactly will I be allowed to hang out with boys?
Manny: When I'm dead… plus 3 days, just to make sure I'm dead.

Diego: I'll handle this. Sid, uh... your family was wiped out by an asteroid. Sorry.
Sid: WHAT?!
Manny: Ahem! What Diego is trying to say is... they left. They only wanted to find you so you could take care of Granny.
Sid: Oh, come on! What kinda sick family would ditch their own Granny on someone? That's just crazy. That's just... that's just... my family.
Diego: Well, at least you still have Granny. Right, Buddy.
Sid: Yeah, Granny. Granny? Granny!
[Granny's gone]
Ellie: Wow. For an old girl, she moves fast.

Manny: [after catching Peaches hanging out with Ethan when she isn't allowed to] Peaches, come on, let's talk about this.
Peaches: How could you embarrass me in front of my friends?!
Manny: You deliberately went where you weren't supposed to!
Peaches: [scoffs angrily] You can't control my life!
Manny: I'm trying to protect you! That's what fathers do!
Peaches: Well… I wish you weren't my father!
[Manny is stunned and hurt by her words]
Ellie: [to Manny] She's just upset, honey. Peaches, it's not the end of the world.

Peaches: [sobbing as she watches her father drift away] Mom, this is all my fault! If I had just—
Ellie: Peaches! This is not your fault, okay? (And why would you say that?)
Peaches: What if I never see him again? And (I only blamed myself because) the last thing we did was fight!
Ellie: Hey! Your father is the toughest, most stubborn mammoth I've ever met. He'll come back for us. [hugs Peaches] That's a promise.

Sid: My mother once told me that bad news is just good news in disguise.
Diego: Was this before she abandoned you?
Sid: Yes, it was.

Gastornis bird chick: When you drink water through your trunk, does it taste like boogers?
Ellie: Uh, no. Well... sometimes. Let's move!

Manny: Just keep your eyes on the horizon!
Diego: I can't find the horizon!

Manny: I can't believe this! You slept through that storm!
Granny: Nah. I slept through the comet that killed the unicorns. [jumps into the ocean] Thanks for drawing my bath, Sidney.
Sid: Granny, grab my paw!
Granny: No way. This is my first bath in decades. [oil-rainbow stain appears around her as fish and a shark float up dead]
Diego: There's your proof.
Sid: Quick! Somebody do something! [Manny throws Sid in the water] I got you, Granny.
Granny: [fighting Sid off with her stick] Get off of me!
Sid: [as he gets her back on the ice berg] Ow, ow, ow, ow! Granny!
Granny: [to Manny and Diego] What are you peeping toms all looking at? [Manny and Diego turn around] A lady can't take a bath in peace? Eyeballing me like a rump roast.
Diego: What's the life expectancy for a female sloth?
Manny: She'll outlive us all, you know that, right? Yeah, the spiteful ones live the longest.

Captain Gutt: I hope you said goodbye, 'cause there's no way back.
Flynn: Yes there is. [Gutt sighs] Don't you remember, Captain? You can sail to Switchback Cove, and catch a current back from there. Like a steel trap this noggin is.
Capt. Gutt: [laughs] Thank you, Mister Flynn. [steps on Flynn's tail flipper]
Flynn: Ow!

Gutt: Now surrender your ship or face my fury!
Sid: Or face your furry what?!
Gutt: Not "furry", "FURY"!

Gutt: Morning, sunshine! Let me be the first to extend the Hand of Friendship.
Manny: That's your foot. [it's revealed that Gutt is standing on his hands]
Gutt: Oh, nothing goes by you, does it?

Shira: 2 sloths, a mammoth and a saber? You guys are like the start of a bad joke.
Diego: And we... saved you, so that makes you the punchline, Kitty.
Shira: [pins him down; angrily] Don't call me Kitty.
Diego: Okay, I won't… [pins her down] ...Kitty.
Granny: If they kiss, I'm gonna puke!

[Shira is alone in her prison; a rustle is heard and she growls]
Diego: Easy, kitty. [pushes a bowl of water to Shira] Water. You need it.
Shira: [pushes the bowl away] I don't need anything from you.
Diego: Fine. Die of thirst. That oughta make things more interesting.
Shira: Wait, I'll take it. [Diego pushes the bowl to her again] Thank you.
Diego: You know you have a way of saying "thank you" that sounds more like "drop dead".
Shira: It's a gift. You're pretty soft for a saber.
Diego: Excuse me? I'm not soft, okay? I happen to be remorseless assassin.
Sid: Diego-poo! Hey, I made you another coral necklace. [to Shira] He keeps losing them. Hee-hee! [skips away]
Shira: Yeah. I think I'm starting to get why you're not in a pack?
Diego: Listen, I chose to leave my pack, alright?
Shira: Way to go, warrior princess! So did I.

Gutt: I need warriors, and all I have are kitty cats and bunny rabbits!
Flynn: And a seal and a kangaroo.

Louis: [after Crash and Eddie fling themselves from trees onto the ground] Can I ask you guys something? How are you both so happy; doesn't it weigh on you that the world might be ending?
Crash: [to Eddie] Can I tell him our secret? [Eddie nods; to Louis] Come here, come here... [Louis leans closer to them] We're very, very... stupid!
Louis: [glares at Crash and Eddie quizzically] But still, you're not a teensy bit concerned about... I don't know, say, imminent death?
Crash: [grabs Louis' nose] Beep.
Louis: [sighs] I'm gonna go find Peaches.

Ethan: [after the gang escapes the collapsed tunnel] Yo, that was insane! Hey, Peach, loosen up; have some fun.
Peaches: [disgusted] Fun?! You call that fun? I'm outta here!
Steffie: Come on, do you really want to go back to hanging out with a weird molehog freak and give all of this up?
Ethan: I mean, it's bad enough that your family's half possum...
Peaches: Bad enough?! There's nothing bad about being part of my family. I like hanging by my tail and if you geniuses are normal, the species is going to end up extinct!
Katie: Yeah, well, your species is going to be extinct first.
Dumb Mammoth: Burn!
Ethan: We're the same species, genius.
Dumb Mammoth: What?! Double burn!

Sid: [recovering from a lotus berry] I can wiggle my toe again! The little piggy who went to market! W-wait! I'm talking again! I had so many things trapped in me that I couldn't say... like "Hey, I'm not dead", and why does a hurricane have an eye but not an ear...?
[Manny and Granny groan as Sid babbles on and on]
Granny: I'll push him overboard. You guys say it was an accident.
Manny: I'm in. How 'bout you, Diego? Diego? [sees Diego pacing back and forth] Hey, relax, buddy! Captain Crazy and his floating petting zoo are history! C'mon, we're finally heading home!
Diego: I dunno what's wrong with me. I can't eat, can't sleep. Maybe I'm comin' down with something.
Manny: [chuckles] Ohhoho! I know what you've got... the "L word".
Sid: Yeah! Leprosy.
Manny: No, Sid, no. It's 4 letters. Starts with L, ends with E.
Sid: Aha! Lice!
Manny: No! Diego, my friend, is in love.
Sid: Oh, yeah! Love!
Diego: You mean with the pirate? No.
Sid: Oh, Shira's gotten under your skin! Come on, admit it!
Manny: A rugged saber like you...
Sid: A more rugged saber like her. [laughs]
Diego: No, no, no. You guys are dead wrong! [leaves]
Manny: [he and Sid look at each other, then burst out laughing] Denial is the clincher! You're in love, pussy cat!
Sid and Manny: Diego and Shira sitting in a tree.
Diego: Real mature, guys. Real mature.

Manny: ELLIE, PEACHES! I'M HERE! Please! She's gotta be here! [no response, Sid, Diego and Granny slump sadly; Manny closes his eyes in despair]
Peaches: [in distance] Dad!
Manny: Wait! Did you hear that?
Diego: Manny.
Manny: No, I heard something! I heard it!
[As they draw closer, a shadow is shown in the fog]
Diego: Is that—?
Manny: Peaches? THERE SHE IS!
Peaches: Dad!
Manny: We're coming, sweetie! Don't move!
Peaches: Daddy!
Manny: Peaches!
[Suddenly, Captain Gutt emerges out of the fog, holding a dagger at Peaches' neck]
Gutt: Welcome home, Daddy!
Peaches: LET GO OF ME!

Ellie: Back off.
Shira: It's okay, I'm on your side.
[Squint throws starfishes at Ellie and Shira]
Squint: I knew you were a traitor.
Shira: Your little bunny nose wiggles in the cutest way when you're mad!
Squint: WHAT?! [Squint perpares one last attack] Your nine lives are over, kitty!
[Ellie stomps on Squint]
Ellie: Silly rabbit... piracy doesn't pay.
Squint: Hey, that's not cool. Come on, now.

[Manny and Captain Gutt battle on top of the ice mass as a landmass carries them upwards]
Gutt: There's nowhere to run, Manny! [He flings the mammoth by his tusks. As the ice hunk they fight on slides towards the sea, Gutt attacks with his bone sword. Manny defends himself with a spear held in his trunk.] You know, this ocean isn't big enough for the both of us! [knocks the spear out of Manny's trunk, then swings his sword at the mammoth, barely missing his eye]
Manny: Don't worry! You won't take up much space once I flatten you! [tries to stomp on Gutt, but Gutt pushes him off. Manny charges, but Gutt jumps upwards and swings from vine overhead. Jumping down, he kicks Manny to the edge. The mammoth eyes the nearing ocean.]
Gutt: [holding a log to finish him off] Told ya, tubby! You shouldn't have messed with the Master of the Seas!
Manny: You know, sometimes, it pays to weigh 11 TONS! [leaps on the end of the ice, catapulting Gutt into the air]
Gutt: NO!
Manny: [catching the log] Bon voyage, Monkey-boy! [bats Gutt, sending him flying into the distance]

"Female ape": Oh, Captain Gutt...
Gutt: [happily] That's me!
"Female ape": Let's rule the seas together.
Gutt: Aye, aye... [a female ape revealed as a siren] Huh? [siren grabs and eats Captain Gutt... alive]
