We’re dead! We’re dead! We survived but we’re dead!
– Dash

Are we there yet?
– Dash
We get there when we get there!
– Mr. Incredible

My God, you’ve gotten fat.
– Edna

Honey?
– Lucius
What?
– Honey
Where’s my super suit?
– Lucius
What?
– Honey
WHERE – IS – MY – SUPER SUIT?
– Lucius
I, uh, put it away!
– Honey
*Where*?
– Lucius
*Why* do you *need* to know?
– Honey
I need it!
– Lucius
Uh-uh! Don’t you think about running off doing no derring-do! We’ve been planning this dinner for two months!
– Honey
The public is in danger!
– Lucius
My evening’s in danger!
– Honey
YOU TELL ME WHERE MY SUIT IS, WOMAN! We are talking about the greater good!
– Lucius
‘Greater good?’ I am your wife! I’m the greatest *good* you are ever gonna get!
– Honey

This is a horrible suit, darling. You can’t be seen in this. I won’t allow it. Fifteen years ago, maybe, but now? Feh!
– Edna
Wait, what do you mean? *You* designed it.
– Bob
I never look back, darling! It distracts from the now.
– Edna

I didn’t know the baby’s powers so I covered the basics.
– Edna
Jack-Jack doesn’t have any powers.
– Helen
No? Well, he’ll look fabulous anyway.
– Edna

I cut it a little roomy for the free movement, the fabric is comfortable for sensitive skin…
– Edna
And it can also withstand a temperature of over 1000 degrees. Completely bulletproof…
– Edna
And machine washable, darling. That’s a new feature.
– Edna

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 ten minutes!
– Mr. Incredible

It will be bold! Dramatic!
– Edna
Yeah!
– Bob
Heroic!
– Edna
Yeah. Something classic, like, like Dynaguy. Oh, he had a great look! Oh, the cape and the boots…
– Bob
No capes!
– Edna
Isn’t that my decision?
– Bob
Do you remember Thunderhead? Tall, storm powers? Nice man, good with kids.
– Edna
Listen, E…
– Bob
November 15th of ’58! All was well, another day saved, when… his cape snagged on a missile fin!
– Edna
Thunderhead was not the brightest bulb…
– Bob
Stratogale! April 23rd, ’57! Cape caught in a jet turbine!
– Edna
E, you can’t generalize about these things…
– Bob
Metaman, express elevator! Dynaguy, snagged on takeoff! Splashdown, sucked into a vortex!
– Edna
No capes!
– Edna

Weren’t you in the news? Some show in, Prayge… Prague?
– Bob
Milan, darling. Milan. Supermodels. Heh! Nothing super about them… spoiled, stupid little stick figures with poofy lips who think only about themselves. Feh! I used to design for *gods*!
– Edna

E, it’s great to see you, but I gotta tell you, I’ve got no idea what you’re talking about.
– Helen
Yes, words are useless! Gobble-gobble-gobble-gobble-gobble! Too much of it, darling, too much! That is why I show you my work! That is why you are here!
– Edna

I was wrong to treat you that way. I’m sorry…
– Mr. Incredible
See? Now you respect me, because I’m a threat. That’s the way it works. Turns out there are lots of people, whole countries, that want respect, and 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…
– Syndrome
Oh, ho ho! You sly dog! You got me monologuing! I can’t believe it…
– Syndrome

What on earth do you think the baby will be doing?
– Helen
Well, I am sure I don’t know, darling. Luck favors the prepared.
– Edna

Superladies? They’re always trying to tell you their secret identity… 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… S-Super, Mega, Ultra Lightning Babe, that’s alright with me. I’m good… I’m good.
– Lucius
