The Best Quotes From 'The Umbrella Academy'

May 20, 2020 931 votes 78 voters25 items

The best The Umbrella Academy quotes prove this show was going to be vastly different from anything else Netflix offers. The show follows, pretty closely, the comic book series it's based on. In 1989, 43 women around the world give birth spontaneously, despite none of them showing signs of labor previously. Sir Reginald Hargreeves adopts seven of these children and turns them into a dysfunctional X-Men-esque team known as The Umbrella Academy. From poignant to funny, the show delved into what would really happen if you essentially turned young heroes into child soldiers, and the kids are all left to pick up the pieces. There are quotes about time, love, and life in The Umbrella Academy that really show why it's such a popular series.
