Jillian: "Are you sure?"
Agnes: "Yes, he just told me."

Like to Go On a Date?Gru: "Hello Lucy, this is Gru. I know up to know our relationship has been strictly professional and you're leaving for Australia and all but, okay, here is the question. Would you like to… to go out on a date?"
Minion: "Uh, no"
Gru: "Okay, that's not helping. All right, here we go, for real this time. I can do this!" [to telephone] "Gah, I hate you!"
Gru practices what he'd say on the phone to ask Lucy out on a date. When it comes time for the real thing however he finds burning the phone with a flamethrower as an easier alternative. This however creates more problems, mainly in the crew of firefighting Minions that appear to put out the flames.
