“I'll give them heroics. I'll give them the most spectacular heroics that anyone has even seen! And when I'm old and I've had my fun, I'll sell my inventions, so that everyone can be my slaves, everyone can be special! And when everyone's special... (chuckles evilly)... no one will be. After I kill everyone, Brendam will be MINE! (laughs maniacal) YES! All mine! Indeed ALL MINE! See you when I come back!”
—Peabody explaining his evil plan to the Guardians of Brendam.
“Stop, Carlos. You will not take over Brendam. We will defeat you.”
“You know, Bernard, these people who come here, they all tell pretty good stories. A surveyor making a map...a botanist cataloging plants...an old man taking his house to Brendam...now that's the best one yet. I can't wait to hear how it ends.”
“Yeah, you can't kill me. Instead, I will punish you by making you do chores around the Guardians' house.”
“You can't do that!”
—Bernard and Peabody, during the start of the final showdown
