[First lines]
Silas: [seeing a lab being stolen; sighs heavily] Three weeks, and we are still no closer to cracking this? [pause] Right! [referring to Gru; to Lucy] Bring him in.
Lucy: Yes, sir.
Gru: [grilling; on the phone] No, no, no! What do you mean, she’s not coming?! I have a backyard full of these little girls who are counting on a visit from a fairy princess! [a Minion accidentally hits his shin with a mace] Ah! Hurts! Ah! Stop it! [chases him off with his spatula; sighs before getting back on the phone] Listen! I don’t want a refund! I want a fairy princess... please! Please, I am begging you. [pauses] You know what? I hope that you can sleep at night, you crusher of little girls’ dreams! [hits the phone with his spatula and hangs up]
Agnes: [approaches him] Oo, oo, when is the fairy princess coming?
Gru: [in a happy singsong voice] Any minute now.
Agnes: Yay! [run off]
Gru: [to the Minions; quietly] Stall them!
[during Agnes’ birthday party]
Little Girl: [raises her hand] How come you’re so fat?
Gru: [in a bad falsetto] Because, my house is made of candy, and sometimes, I eat instead of facing my problems!
Little Girl: How come you have... [Gru cuts her off; coughs]
Gru: [in normal voice] Okay, time for cake!
[All children, except Agnes, run to the table]
Agnes: Thank you, Gru-zinkerbell. You’re the best fairy princess ever.
Gru: [smiling; in a bad falsetto] You are welcome, little girl.
Agnes: [runs off, but quickly returns; whispering] I know it’s really you, Gru. I’m just pretending for the other kids.
[Gru happily sees her running off, until he is approached by Jillian]
Jillian: Hey there, Gru, Mr. Life of the Party!
Gru: [attempts a smile] Hello, Jillian.
Jillian: So, I’m gonna go out on a limb here, but my friend Natalie is recently single, and... [Natalie falls down]
Gru: No, no, no. Get off the limb right now. No limb.
Jillian: Oh, come... she’s a riot. She sings karaoke, she has a lot of free time, looks aren’t that important to her...
Gru: No, Jill’s, that is not happening. Seriously, I’m fine.
Jillian: [calling after him] Okay, fine. Forget Natalie. How about my cousin Linda?
Gru: [passes by Margo and Edith] No.
Jillian: Oh, oh! I know someone whose husband just died... [gets sprayed by Gru's garden hose]
Gru: [dryly] I'm sorry. I did not see you there. [sprays her again] Or there. [drops the hose and walks away holding the palette, chuckling softly]
[After the party, Gru takes Kyle outside. Unbeknownst to both of them, they are being watched]
Gru: Kyle, Kyle, Kyle, no! Do not do your business on the petunias! [picks Kyle and drops him in the yard next door] There you go, those are Fred's. Go crazy. [Kyle does his business, killing the plant; chuckles sinisterly] Good boy.
Lucy: [off-screen] Mr. Gru?
Gru: [stuttering] Wha, I didn't, wha... Yes?
Lucy: [appears on-screen] Hi. Agent Lucy Wilde of the AVL. [shows her AVL ID-card, but notices she shows it upside-down] Oops. [giggles nervously, then becomes serious] Sorry. You're gonna have to come with me.
Gru: Oh, sorry. I- [suddenly takes his freeze out of his polo, then aims and fires at Lucy] Freeze ray!
[However, Lucy silently counters the beam of Gru's freeze ray with the flames of her hair dryer-shaped flamethrower, canceling eachother out]
Lucy: You know, you really should announce your weapons [takes a tube of lipstick out of her purse] after you fire them, Mr. Gru. For example, [presses a button on the tube, two barbs shoot into Gru, who drops his freeze ray when he is filled with electricity; in a happy singsong voice] Lipstick tazer! [Gru convulses, dances disco, and finally passes out due to the shock] Oh, it works so good.
