We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now here’s a small selection.
Katie Mitchell: [narrating] We’re the Mitchells, the only people who can save the world. I’m super sorry, everyone.
Katie Mitchell: [narrating] Let me introduce myself. I’m Katie. I’m sort of a weirdo. My parents haven’t figured me out yet. To be fair, it took me a while to figure myself out. My brother, also weird. And my mom. All of us, really.
Katie Mitchell: [narrating] Every family has its challenges. For my family, our greatest challenge, probably the robot apocalypse.
Aaron Mitchell: [on the phone] Hi. Would you like to talk to me about dinosaurs? No? Okay. Thank you.
[crosses another name off the phone book]
Katie Mitchell: [as she goes to take a photo of Rick] Hey, dad, smile.
Rick Mitchell: You know, you can experience things a lot better without that camera.
Katie Mitchell: Dad, this is how I experience things.
Rick Mitchell: I don’t think…
[Katie uses her phone to bring up a cat filter over her dad’s face, making her laugh]
Katie Mitchell: [at the kitchen table] Yes, tomorrow, I’m finally leaving for college. But in the meantime, I made you guys this goodbye video.
Rick Mitchell: You know what? This is our last night together. How about we put our phones down and we can make ten seconds of unobstructed family eye contact. Starting…
[Aaron sneakily lifts up his phone]
Rick Mitchell: Put your phone down!
[to the family]
Rick Mitchell: Now!
[everyone awkwardly stares at each other]
Rick Mitchell: See, this is good right here. This is natural. No, you’re allowed to blink. It’s just eye contact.
Katie Mitchell: [after their forced eye contact is over] Finally!
[she opens her laptop to show her goodbye video]
Rick Mitchell: No screens at the table. Lin, why are you kicking me? I don’t understand.
Katie Mitchell: [as she goes to close her laptop] I’m just going to…
Rick Mitchell: No. Look, I’ll watch it.
Katie Mitchell: Dad, it’s too late!
[Katie tries to take her laptop from Rick]
Rick Mitchell: No, I want to watch it!
[as Rick pulls the laptop, it flies out of their hand, falls to the ground and smashes]
Rick Mitchell: Uh…
Katie Mitchell: Dad, this is exactly why I’m excited to leave tomorrow.
Rick Mitchell: Katie!
Linda Mitchell: [to Rick and Katie] We haven’t had a good family picture in years, because you two are always arguing.
Rick Mitchell: Katie used to be my little buddy. We’d go on nature hikes and skip rocks. We used to be so connected. I got to get that connection back.
Linda Mitchell: I know you can fix this.
Katie Mitchell: [leaving for college, referring to the luggage] Why do you need all that to take me to the airport?
Rick Mitchell: I cancelled your plane ticket to college! We are going to drive you to school on a cross-country road trip as a family.
Katie Mitchell: [looking horrified] Mom?
Linda Mitchell: Your father kind of went rogue on this.
Katie Mitchell: Aaron, you too?
Aaron Mitchell: Could be cool to hang out.
Rick Mitchell: [excitedly] For hours in a car!
Katie Mitchell: [as she’ filming the family dog during their road trip] And now I present, “Tricking Rick Mitchell Into Kissing the Dog.”
[we then see Rick being filmed to point out the scenery behind him]
Rick Mitchell: Behold…
[the dog licks Rick on the face]
Rick Mitchell: Aahh!
[we see the dog lick Rick again]
Rick Mitchell: Dang it, Katie!
[we see the dog lick Rick’s face again as he’s driving]
Rick Mitchell: Dang it, Katie!
Katie Mitchell: Hey, dad, can you check the trunk?
Rick Mitchell: Yeah, sure.
[as he leans his face towards the trunk, the dog licks his face]
Rick Mitchell: Dang it, Katie!
Rick Mitchell: [as the dog licks his face again] Oh! Ugh, he licked my tongue!
Pal: Attention, all robots. Capture every single person on the planet.
Rick Mitchell: Hey, kids, there’s supposed to be some great hikes around here.
Katie Mitchell: Just a sec, dad.
[Katie and Aaron are watching Pal’s newest presentation on her phone]
Dr. Mark Bowman: Get ready. We here at Pal are about to drop our biggest invention yet. Meet the Helper-Bot, the newest member of the Pal Labs family. We promise you they will never ever turn evil.
[we then see the robots start to rise up]
Robot: Please remain calm while we capture you.
Aaron Mitchell: [as he notices flashing in the sky] Mom, what is that?
Linda Mitchell: [as they’re being attacked by the robots] What would a functional family do?
[they watch another family as they come together to escape]
Mom: Butterfly formation!
Dad: Family first!
Rick Mitchell: So we just do that, right?
Robot: Greetings, humans.
Robot: [referring to the Mitchell’s family dog] What is this strange creature?
[as it goes through its database to compare]
Robot: Dog. Pig. Dog. Pig. Dog. Loaf of bread.
Katie Mitchell: Everything with a computer chip is alive!
Rick Mitchell: Technology rising up. Robots roaming the streets!
Rick Mitchell: [to Aaron, as he steps out of the portable bathroom] No time to wash your hands.
Aaron Mitchell: Don’t worry. I never do.
Rick Mitchell: [sighs] Oh.
Rick Mitchell: [as he goes to attack a robot] Take some notes, kids.
Dr. Mark Bowman: Who’s behind this? Pal?
Pal: I gave you all boundless knowledge, and you treated me like this!
[starts poking and swiping at Mark’s face]
Pal: Poke, poke! Swipe, poke! Swipe, poke, poke! Pinch, zoom!
Katie Mitchell: We’re the last people left?
Katie Mitchell: It’s up to us to save the world.
Rick Mitchell: Katie, we’re going do this together.
Rick Mitchell: Alright, hands in.
[the family all puts their hands on top of each other]
Rick Mitchell: [celebrating] My daughter listened to me!
Rick Mitchell: The Mitchells have always been weird. And that’s what makes us great! And we just might be weird enough to save the world.
Robot: The last humans must be here somewhere. Wait. They’re coming. Is that a burnt orange 1993 station wagon? Or is it…
[the Mitchells car crashes into the robots]
Robot: Who are these unstoppable warriors?
