Quotes from Bob

Bob: (explaining an insurance policy loophole to an old lady) Listen closely. I'd like to help you but I can't. I'd like to say take a copy of your policy to Norma Wilcox on... Norma Wilcox, W-I-L-C-O-X... on the third floor, but I can't. (old lady scribbles details of Bob's loophole on a small notepad) I also do not advise you to fill out and file a WS2475 form with our legal department on the second floor. I would not expect someone to get back to you to resolve the matter quickly. I'd like to help, but there's nothing I can do. (old lady tries to thank him for everything, but Bob shushes her and shouts very loud) Thank you ma'm, I know you are upset. (very softly to old lady) Pretend to be upset! (old lady starts sobbing very convincingly)

Mr. Incredible: Is this on? I mean, can break through walls, I just can't... can't get this on...

Oliver Sansweet: (Mr. Incredible intercepts him on his way down and his momentum carries them both through the window of the building) Ow! I think you broke something.
Mr. Incredible: Well, with counseling, I think you'll come to forgive me.

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 finaly figured out who I am. I am your ward. IncrediBoy!
Mr. Incredible: And now, you have officially carried it too far, Buddy.
Buddy: This is because I don't have powers, isn't it? Well, not every superhero has powers, you 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.

Bob: Wait here and stay hidden. I'm going in.
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? What is it?
Bob: I'm not...
Helen: Not what?
Bob: 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 work out?
Bob: (shouts) I can't lose you again! I can't. Not again. I'm not s-strong enough.
Helen: (kisses him) If we work together, you won't have to be.
Bob: I don't know what will happen...
Helen: Hey, c'mon. We're superheroes. What could happen?

Bob: Are you saying we shouldn't help our customers?
Gilbert Huph: The law requires that I answer, No.

Gilbert Huph: (in Huph's office) You know, Bob... a company...
Bob: Is like an enormous clock.
Gilbert Huph: ...Is like an enormous cl... Yes, precisely.

Helen: 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 kinda close, don't ya think?

Bob: You need to be more... flexible.
Bob: Are you doing anything later?
Helen: I have a previous engagement.

Helen: I can't believe you don't want to go to your own son's graduation.
Bob: It's not a graduation. He's moving from the 4th grade to the 5th grade.
Helen: It's a ceremony!
Bob: It's psychotic! They keep creating new ways to celebrate mediocrity, but if someone is genuinely exceptional...

(Bob notices the little boy on the tricycle staring at him for the second day in a row)
Bob: Well, what are you waiting for?
Little Boy on Tricycle: I don't know. Something amazing, I guess.
Bob: Me too, kid.

Bob: I should have told you I was fired, I admit it. But I didn't want you to worry.
Helen: You didn't want me to worry? And now we're running for our lives through some godforsaken jungle?
Bob: (grinning happily) You keep trying to pick a fight, but I'm still just happy you're alive.

Edna: You need a new suit, that much is certain.
Bob: A new suit? Well, where the heck am I gonna get a new suit?
Edna: You can't! It's impossible! I'm far too busy, so ask me now before I again become sane.
Bob: Wait? you want to make me a suit?
Edna: You push too hard, darling! But I accept! It will be bold! Dramatic!
Bob: Yeah!
Edna: Heroic!
Bob: Yeah. Something classic - like Dynaguy. Oh, he had a great look! Oh, the cape and the boots...
Edna: (throws a wadded ball of paper at Bob's head) 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: Thunderhead was not the brightest bulb...
Edna: Stratogale! April 23rd, '57! Cape caught in a jet turbine!
Bob: E, you can't generalize about these things...
Edna: Metaman, express elevator! Dynaguy, snag on takeoff! Splashdown, sucked into a vortex! (shouts) No capes!

(the suicide jumper and his lawyer are criticizing Mr. Incredible on TV)
Bob: (lunging towards the jumper) Hey, I saved your life!
Oliver Sansweet: You didn't save my life, you ruined my death, that's what ya did!

Bob: You know I'm retired from hero work.
Edna: As am I, Robert, yet here we are.

Bob: (to Buddy) You're not affiliated with me!

Bob: Showtime.

(In the RV, traveling to the mainland)
Dash: Are we there yet?
Bob: We get there when we get there!

Helen: Now our kids are in trouble?
Bob: Well, if you suspected danger, why did you bring them?
Helen: I didn't bring them! They stowed away! And I don't think you're striking the proper tone here!

Helen: I thought you'd be back by 11.
Bob: I said I'd be back later.
Helen: I assumed you'd be back later. If you came back at all, you'd be back "later".
Bob: Well I'm back, okay?

(Mirage releases Mr. Incredible from his restraints and rushes over to him)
Mirage: There isn't much time.
(Mr. Incredible grabs her by the throat)
Mr. Incredible: No, there isn't. (He stands up and holds her in the air) In fact, there's no time at all.
Mirage: (Choking) Please.
Mr. Incredible: Why are you here? How can you possibly bring me lower? What *more* can you take away from me?
Mirage: (Choking) You're family... survived the crash. They're here... on the island.
Mr. Incredible: They're alive?

Elastigirl: Let go of me, you lousy, lying, unfaithful creep.
Mr. Incredible: How can I betray the perfect woman?
Elastigirl: Oh, you're referring to me now?
