[as children, Metro Man is given stars from the teacher, while Megamind is made to stand in a corner]
Megamind: No matter what happened, I wa always the last chosen, the odd one out, the black sheep... the bad boy. Was this my destiny?... Wait. Maybe it WAS! Being bad is the one thing I'm good at! Then it hit me: if I was the bad boy, then I was going to be the baddest boy of them ALL!
[sets off a chemical explosion in the schoolhouse]
Megamind: I was destined to be a supervillain, and we were destined to be rivals! The die was cast! And so began an epic enduring lifelong career... and I LOVED IT!

Minion: [at a monitor] Death ray readying!
[a solar-powered laser starts to activate]
Megamind: Let's see if Metro Man can withstand the full concentrated power of the sun! FIRE!
[nothing happens]
Megamind: [to Minion] Fire!
Minion: [at monitor] Still warming up, sir.
Megamind: Warming up? The sun is WARMING UP?

I'm so tired of running rampant in the streets...

Megamind's Father: [last words to his son] You are destined for...
[the ship closes and takes off]
Megamind: [narrating] What? Destined for what? I didn't quite catch that last part!

Roxanne Ritchi: [looking around Megamind's lair] Is there some kind of nerdy supervillain website where you get Tesla coils and blinky dials?
Minion: Actually, most of it comes from an outlet store in...
Megamind: Don't answer her!

All men must choose between two paths. Good is the path of honour, friends and family. Evil... well, it's just cooler. Hit it!

[to Roxanne] I've been watching you, like a dingo watches a human baby...

Roxanne Ritchi: Your plans never work, you're SOOO predictable!
Megamind: You call THIS predictable?
[pulls a lever]
Roxanne Ritchi: Alligators, yeah, mm-hmm. I was thinking about it on the way over...
Megamind: Booyah!
[brings down a gauntlet of blades]
Roxanne Ritchi: Juvenile!
Megamind: So scary...
[activites a cycle of spiked boots]
Roxanne Ritchi: Seen it!
Megamind: [brings up a chainsaw] This one's kind of...
Roxanne Ritchi: Tacky!
Megamind: [frantic] What's this one do?
[unleashes a flamethrower]
Roxanne Ritchi: Garish!
[Megamind breaks down]
Roxanne Ritchi: The spider's new.
Megamind: Spider?
[sees a spider hanging in front of Roxanne]
Megamind: Uh... Yeah, the spiiiider. Even the smallest bite from... "arachnis deadlius"... will instantly paralyze...
[Roxanne blows the spider into MegaMind's eye]
Megamind: Aargh! Get it off!

Yeah, Metro City!

Metro Man

Megamind: You can scream all you wish, Miss Ritchi, I'm afraid no one can hear you!... Uh, why isn't she screaming?
Minion: Miss Ritchi, if you don't mind...

Megamind: Miss Ritchi, we meet again.
Roxanne Ritchi: Oh... it's only you!

Megamind: This will be the last you ever see of... Roxanne Ritchi! Huh?
Metro Man: Don't panic, Roxy... I'm on my way!
Roxanne Ritchi: I'm not panicking.
Megamind: [smirking] You have to find her first, Metro Man!
Roxanne Ritchi: We're at the coastline observatory!
Megamind: No, no! Don't listen to her!
