The Incredibles is a 2004 Academy Award-winning computer animated feature film produced by Pixar Animation Studios for Walt Disney Pictures, centering around a family of superheroes. It was written and directed by Brad Bird, previously best known for directing the 1999 animated film The Iron Giant. The Incredibles was originally developed as a traditionally-animated movie for Warner Bros., but after Warner shut down its feature animation division, Brad Bird moved to Pixar and took the story with him.

Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible

No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Sometimes I just want it to stay saved! You know?!
  • Every superhero has a secret identity. I don't know a single one who doesn't. I mean, who wants the pressure of being super all the time?
  • No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Sometimes I just want it to stay saved! You know?! For a little bit. I feel like the maid: "I just cleaned up this mess! Can we keep it clean for, for 10 minutes?! Please?!"
  • Sometimes, I think I just like the simple life, you know, relax a little and raise a family.

Helen Parr / Elastigirl

  • Of course I have a secret identity. [about her super-suit] Can you see me in this at the supermarket? Come on! Who'd wanna go shopping as Elastigirl? You know what I mean?
  • Now, I'll tell you what we're not gonna do. We're not gonna panic, we're not gonna die.

Lucius Best/Frozone

  • Super-ladies, they're always trying to tell you their secret identity. [whispers] 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-lightnin' babe? That's all right with me. I'm good. I'm good.
  • I don't see anyone from the old days, Bob. Just you. And we're pushing our luck as it is.
  • Where is my Super Suit?!

Dash Parr

  • [After a huge explosion destroys the Parrs' house] Does this mean we have to move again?

Violet Parr

  • I feel different. Is different okay?

Syndrome (Buddy Pine / IncrediBoy)

  • I knew you couldn't do it, even when you've got nothing to lose. You're weak. And I've outgrown you.
  • [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! [laughs] This is just too good!


  • [about Syndrome] He's attracted to power. So am I. It's a weakness we share.

Edna Mode

  • I never look back, darling. It distracts from the now.
  • No capes!


  • Rusty: That was totally wicked!!
  • Kari: Because leading experts say, Mozart makes babies smarter. I wish my parents played Mozart when I was asleep because half the time I don't even know what the heck anyone's talking about!
  • The Underminer: [last line] Behold: The Underminer! I am always beneath you, but nothing is beneath me! I hereby declare war against peace and happiness! Soon, all will tremble before me!


[Mr. Incredible is about to go to the scene of a tour bus robbery when Buddy enters the car]
Buddy: Cool! Ready for take-off!
Mr. Incredible: What the-- who are you?
Buddy: Well, I'm IncrediBoy!
Mr. Incredible: What? No. You're that kid from the fan club. Brophy-Br-Brody-Bu-Buddy! Buddy.
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? This isn't funny.
Buddy: You don't have to worry about training me. I know all your moves, your crime-fighting style, favorite catch phrases, and everything! I am your number #1 fan!
[Mr. Incredible ejects him from his car and drives away]

Mr. Incredible: I work alone.
Elastigirl: And I think you need to be more... [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, clown-like super villain named Bomb Voyage]
Mr. Incredible: Bomb Voyage.
Voyage: Monsieur Incroyable...! [Mr. Incredible...!]
Buddy: [offscreen] And IncrediBoy!
[he breaks through the window.]
Voyage: IncrediBoy?
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.
Buddy: What?
Mr. Incredible: Now.
Voyage: Petit naïf libe...! [Little oaf...!]
[Buddy looks at Voyage]
Buddy: Can we talk? [pulls Mr. Incredible off to the side] You always, say, "Be true to yourself.", but you never say which part of yourself to be true to! Well, I've finally figured out who I am! [walks up to Mr. Incredible] I am your ward: IncrediBoy!
Mr. Incredible: And now, you have officially gone too far, Buddy. [grabs Voyage before he can escape]
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.
Voyage: Et ton costume est complètement ridicule! [And your outfit is totally ridiculous!]
Buddy: Could you just gimme one chance? Look, I'll show you! I'll go get the police!
[Voyage has attached a bomb to Buddy's cape; Mr. Incredible notices]
Mr. Incredible: Buddy, don't!
Buddy: It'll only take a second! Really!
Mr. Incredible: No! Stop! [releases Voyage] 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.
Buddy: I can help you! You're making a mistake! [arrested and shoved into the police car] Hey!
Mr. Incredible: [to the cops] The injured jumper. You sent paramedics?
Cop: Already picked him up.
Mr. Incredible: The blast in that building was caused by Bomb Voyage, who I caught in the act of robbing the vault. Now we might be able to nab him if we set up a perimeter.
Cop: You mean he got away?
Mr. Incredible: Well, yeah. [gestures to Buddy in the car] Skippy here made sure of that.
Buddy: IncrediBoy!
Mr. Incredible: You're not affiliated with me!

[as the cops burst into the jewelry store where Bob and Lucius are, Lucius reaches for a water cooler to replenish his freezing powers]
Cop: Freeze!
Lucius: I'm thirsty.
[Lucius reaches for a cup of water]
Cop: I said "freeze"!
Lucius: I'm just getting a drink. [takes the cup and drinks]
Cop: Okay, you had your drink. Now, I want you to...
Lucius: I know, I know. Freeze. [freezes the cop]

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".

Helen: Don't even think you avoided talking about your trip to the principal's office, young man. Your father and I are still going to discuss it.
Dash: I'm not the only kid who's been sent to the office, you know.
Helen: Other kids don't have superpowers. Now, it's perfectly normal
Violet: Normal? What do you know about "normal"? What does anyone in this family know about "normal"?!
Helen: Now, look, honey!
Violet: We act normal, Mom. I wanna be normal! The only one normal is Jack-Jack, and he's not even toilet-trained!
Jack-Jack: [giggles]
Dash: Lucky. [Helen gives him an angry look] I mean, about being normal.

[Edna shows Helen the other suits she has created for the Parrs]
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 [flamethrowers throw fire at the suit without leaving burn marks], and it can also withstand a temperature of over 1,000 degrees! Completely bulletproof. [machine guns train on the suit and empty rounds into it without causing any damage] 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? He'll look fabulous anyway. [moves on to Dash's suit] Your boy's suit I designed to withstand enormous friction without heating up or wearing out. A useful feature. [moves on to Violet's] Your daughter's suit was tricky, but I finally created a sturdy material that will disappear completely as she does. [moves on to Helen's new suit] Your suit can stretch as far as you can, without injuring yourself [the suit gets stretched], and still retain its shape. Virtually indestructible. [two missiles fire at the suit, but the suit sustains no damage] 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. [hands Helen one showing the tracking location of one of the suits] Well, darling? What do you think?
Helen: What do I think?! Bob is retired! I'm retired, our family is underground! You helped my husband resume secret hero-work behind my back?!
Edna: Well, I assumed you knew, darling! Why would he keep secrets from you?
Helen: He wouldn't. Didn't-- D-Doesn't.
Edna: [sighs] Men at Robert's age are often unstable. Prone to weakness.

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: [about 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?

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 suspected 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!
