Funny movie quotes from Sky High – A cute movie about the insecurities of growing up and entering high school — with the added complication of being the son of superheroes. Teen angst, young love, and high school rivalries are here, in a not-too-serious movie
Layla: Now I know it’s just our first day, but I already can’t wait to graduate and start saving mankind … And womankind. And animalkind.
Will Stronghold: And the rain forest.
Layla: Of course!
Will Stronghold: [bumps into Gwen] Oh! Uh — I’m …
Gwen: Will Stronghold!
Will Stronghold: Aha, Mind Reader!
Gwen: No, name tag.
Nurse Spex (Cloris Leachman): The kids who get bit by radioactive insects or fall into a vat of toxic waste, their powers usually show up the next day. Or — they die.
Principal Powers (Linda Carter): [over the intercom] There is no smoking on school grounds. Or freezing, or bursting into flames.
Will Stronghold: [narrating] You look at them and see the defenders of the world. All I see is my dad wearing tights.
Magenta: [sitting down beside Layla] Hey, Layla, you did the history homework?
Warren Peace: What are you doing?
Magenta: It’s called sitting.
Warren Peace: No one sits here but me.
Magenta: [starts talking to Layla again] What’d you get for number four? I wasn’t sure if Tigerman was, A: bitten by a radioactive tiger, or B: bitten by a regular tiger, then exposed to radiation.
Ethan: [sitting down beside Warren] Hey. Eating at Warren’s table now? I feel extremely dangerous.
Warren Peace: Whoa. Whoa.
Zach: [sitting down on the other side Warren and pointing at Warren] This guy bothering you, Magenta?
Warren Peace: Try the other way around.
Principal Powers (Linda Carter): In a few moments, you will go through Power Placement and your own heroic journey will begin.
Will Stronghold: Power Placement?
Layla: Sounds fascist.
Ethan: Power Placement. It’s how they decide where you go.
Magenta: The hero track or the loser track.
Will Stronghold: There — there’s a loser track?
Ethan: I believe the preferred term is “Hero Support.”
[during Power Placement]
Coach Boomer (Bruce Campbell): [to Layla] You, Flower child. Let’s go.
Layla: I believe in only using my powers when the situation demands it.
Coach Boomer (Bruce Campbell): Well, you’re in luck: This is the situation, and I’m demanding it.
Layla: But to participate in this test would be to support a flawed system. I think the whole Hero-Sidekick dichotomy only serves to — ¦
Coach Boomer (Bruce Campbell): Let me get this straight. Are you refusing to show me your powers?
Layla: Well, it’s more complicated than that, I mean — ¦
Coach Boomer (Bruce Campbell): [Yells very loudly, causing all glass in the vicinity to shatter and makes everyone brace themselves] SSSSSIIIIIIIDDDDDDEEEEEEEKKKKKIIIIIIICCCCCCCKKKKKK!
[during Power Placement]
Coach Boomer (Bruce Campbell): Did I say you were next?
Zach: Name’s Zach, Coach Boomer. Try not to drop your clipboard.
[claps his hands together and opens his arms again slowly. Nothing happens]
Coach Boomer (Bruce Campbell): Any day now, superstar.
Zach: I’m doing it.
Coach Boomer (Bruce Campbell): Doing what?
Zach: I’m glowing!
Coach Boomer (Bruce Campbell): I don’t think so.
Zach: Well, it’s easier to see in a dark room, maybe we could turn off these lights, you could cup your hands around your eyes and look real close — ¦
Coach Boomer (Bruce Campbell): Sidekick!
Layla: When life gives you lemons — ¦
[Layla tries to grow a lemon, but produces an apple instead]
Will Stronghold: Make apple juice?
Josie (Kelly Preston): We can’t change who he is — ¦ not without dropping him in a vat of toxic waste.
Josie (Kelly Preston): Steve!
Steve (Kurt Russell): Where would we even find a vat of — ¦
Josie (Kelly Preston): Steve!
Steve (Kurt Russell): [stretching out his arms for a hug] William Theodore Stronghold, come here!
Will Stronghold: Wait, you’re not mad?
Steve (Kurt Russell): My boy has super-strength! How can I be mad?
[hugs Will, cracking his backbones]
Will Stronghold: [groans in pain] Ow!
Steve (Kurt Russell): Sorry.
[Will hugs Steve back]
Steve (Kurt Russell): Ow,you are strong! All right, if your mom asks, you tell her I read you the riot act and I took away your Xbox.
Will Stronghold: But I don’t have an Xbox.
Steve (Kurt Russell): Are you sure?
[Steve spins a chair to reveal a large, nicely wrapped present for Will]
Layla: What’s embarrassing him in front of the entire class going to prove? That is so unfair.
Will Stronghold: Yeah, well if life were to suddenly get fair, I doubt it would happen in high school.
Layla: Hi, Warren.
Warren Peace: Did I do or say anything last night to make you think this is okay?
Layla: Funny. No, but, seriously, you’re never gonna believe what happened. I was about to ask Will to homecoming when, wouldn’t you know it, I said I was going with you instead.
Warren Peace: I don’t remember that being the plan.
Warren Peace: So you’re asking me to the homecoming dance just to get back at Stronghold? Not because you like me or anything?
[Layla nods, Warren smiles]
Warren Peace: I’m in!
Gwen: I’m a technopath. I can control technology with my mind.
Will Stronghold: Wow. All I can do is … punch stuff.
Mr. Medulla: [passing them] Yet he’ll be the one on cereal boxes. Show me the justice in that.
Warren Peace: Did you want me to heat that up for you?
Layla: We’re not supposed to use our powers outside of school!
Warren Peace: I was just gonna stick it in the microwave.
Gwen: Well you’ve got new friends now. And I think that you need to figure out whether you hang out with us — or with those losers. Come on, let’s go.
Will Stronghold: No, forget it! I’m not going anywhere with you. Not now, and not to homecoming. Might as well just find yourself a new date, Gwen.
Gwen: You’re dumping me? Whoa whoa, let’s just get something straight, ok? You do not dump me! Not the night before the dance!
Will Stronghold: Sorry Gwen, I, ah, just did! You’re dumped!
Zach: [dancing ridiculously] Hey, you wanna dance?
Zach: [stops dancing] Me neither.
[after Zach takes the lead in the dark because he glows]
Magenta: [singing] And then all the reindeer loved him.
Layla: [after getting punched in the face by Penny] Big mistake!
[Penny backs away slightly and then Layla uses her powers to grow vines in the cafeteria; the vines then grow over Penny and her clones and pull them up in the air]
Penny: But I thought you were a sidekick.
Layla: I am a sidekick.
[Will just found out that Gwen and her mother are the same person]
Will Stronghold: Oh my God, I made out with an old lady.
Principal Powers (Linda Carter): What a waste. I can’t do anything more to help you. I’m not Wonder Woman, you know.
[walks out of the detention room, leaving Gwen/Royal Pain and the others locked inside]
Gwen: I went through puberty twice — for this?
Will Stronghold: In the end, my girlfriend became my arch enemy, my arch enemy became my best friend, and my best friend became my girlfriend. But, hey, it’s high school.
