  • Quotes

    • Susan: Reed, you agreed to take a break.
      Reed: What? I am taking a break. Only 49% of my attention is on the lab. The other 51% is enjoying my morning here with you.

    • (the FF are defending the Baxter Building against Giganto)
      Johnny: Whoa, whoa, whoa, big guy! I got all my stuff in there!
      Ben: Yeah, you wouldn't want Giganto here to smash all your toy cars.
      Johnny: Models. They're model cars, Ben. My toys are in storage.

    • Reed: Hold it off. I'll be right back.
      Susan: Let me guess, you're getting something from your lab.
      Reed: What do you expect? I have a really great lab.

    • (to Giganto)
      Johnny: Step away from the building. No monsters allowed. Not including Ben.

    • Ben: How come we always get the giant monsters?
      Reed: I could talk to Doom, maybe he could send us a giant robot.
      Ben: Sure, that'd be a nice change.

    • Reed: But I brought my plasma flashlight.
      Johnny: Phone call for Mr. N. Erd.
      Ben: It's all right, buddy. We can use your flashlight later.

    • Reed: As long as the Mole Man thinks we are prisoners, he'll ignore us. And we need to know how he's controlling Giganto.
      Susan: Uh, we're not really calling that thing "Giganto," are we?

    • Ben: Any more bright ideas?
      Reed: Well, we could try and have them imprint on you. It's not ideal, but at least you wouldn't have them destroy the surface world.
      Ben: Well, I might have them destroy Johnny.
      Johnny: I heard that.

    • Reed: Amazing to think that such a creature could live undisturbed for what must have been millennia.
      Mole Man: Must you prattle on?
      Ben: Hey, only we get to say stuff like that.
