Here are the best Minions quotes, bringing the beloved little yellow creatures back for another feature film which discusses their backstory and events prior to the Despicable Me films. The animated movie, created by Illumination Entertainment, was directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda using a screenplay by Brian Lynch. Minions opened in theaters on July 10, 2015.

In Minions, the story of Kevin, Stuart, Bob and the other minions (all voiced by Pierre Coffin) is introduced. For centuries, the minions have followed around various evil masters, including Napoleon, Dracula and even dinosaurs, but they struggle to keep a master alive. Kevin desires to find a master for life and takes Bob and Stuart with him to America to find that master.

When the minions arrive in the states, they travel to Orlando to attend Villain-Con, where they hope to find a new master, with super evil Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock) in mind. They meet with her and her husband Herb (voiced by Jon Hamm), and soon embark on a mission for her to steal the crown of Queen Elizabeth (voiced by Jennifer Saunders). To say the least, this sends the minions on an adventure of epic proportions.

Stuart: Banana!
Scarlet Overkill: Banana!
Herb Overkill: Wow, these cats are pumped!
Scarlet Overkill: Maybe I'll settle them down with a bedtime story.
Bob: Bedtime story?
Scarlet Overkill: Once upon a time, there were three little pigs. The pigs encountered a big, bad wolf who wanted the pigs to come work for her. One day, the pigs did something very stupid so the wolf huffed and puffed and she blew them off the face of the earth. The end.

While Scarlet Overkill says she is reading the minions a simple bedtime story, really what she is doing is letting them know what would happen should they not comply with her demands. This scares the minions, well, except for Bob, who falls asleep.
