That's how many adoption interviews I've had, Oh, Lewis, come on, now. You're exaggerating just to make your point. Plus, I'm gonna be 13 next year, and you know how hard it is for a teenager to get adopted. I have no future. No one wants me. That's not true, Lewis! My own mother didn't even want me.
You do not know that. Then why'd she give me up? She may not have been able to take care of you. Did you ever think of that? I am sure that she was only thinking about what was best for you. I never thought of it that way.
Maybe she wanted to keep you, but she had no choice. My real mom is the only person who's ever wanted me. What are you talking about? I have to find her, Mildred, and when I do, she'll take me back, and we'll be a family again! Lewis, you can't do that. No one knows anything about her. No one even saw her. I saw her once.

I recalibrated the headset. Now the neural circuits will connect. I've cracked the hippocampus! Now to test it out. Wait a minute, Lewis. I almost forgot what I came up here for. I know you have a lot on your plate today, but I've scheduled an interview for you this afternoon. Sweetheart, this is about being adopted, and you will be back here clean, happy and on time. I'm done with interviews, Mildred. I'm not gonna be rejected anymore. Listen, I know where your head is, but I'm telling you, you have got to get out of the past and look to the future.
I am, and this is it. This is my future. Dr Krunklehorn, I know you're very busy there at Inventco Labs, and we're just so excited to have you as a judge. It's my pleasure, Mr Willerstein.

I haven't slept in eight days! Well, then can I get you a cot or something? Nope, I've got the caffeine patch. Each patch is the equivalent of 12 cups of coffee.

The boys back at HQ haven't figured out a motive yet. And by "HQ," I mean "headquarters. You're a smart kid. That might keep you alive, for now. Just worry about your little science gizmo and leave the "perp" to me.
You're not gonna get away with it, kid with science project. Dude, you almost busted my solar system! That's the last of them. Annoying little girl, I don't have time for this. I'm on a very important Don't sass me, boy. Next up is Lewis. Lewis, tell me this thing is not gonna It's gonna work this time. I won't let you down, I promise. All right, Lewis, I trust you.
That was a figure of speech. Please don't kill anyone. Okay, stand back, everybody. This next project will knock your socks off. Seriously, you might wanna stand back a little. Have you ever forgotten something, and no matter how hard you tried, you couldn't remember it?
Well, what happens to these forgotten memories? I propose they're stored somewhere in your brain, and I built a machine that can retrieve them.
I call it the Memory Scanner. So, Lewis, how does the Memory Scanner work? First, you input the desired period of time on this keypad. Then a laser scans the cerebral cortex, where memories are stored. The retrieved memory is then displayed on this monitor. Now, I'm going back 12 years, three months and 11 days. Why that particular day? You didn't think I was paying attention, did you? Well, that was the day Let's just say, that was a very important day in my life.
It'll just take a second to get the turbines going. Coach, suck it up, okay? Let us conduct ourselves in a way that we'll all be proud of tomorrow. Okay, and we are walking in a calm, orderly fashion toward the exits. Hey, what are you doing up here? Would you quit that, please? I know you're not a pigeon.
You're blowing my cover. We're the only ones up here. That's just what they want you to think. Take this back to the science fair and fix that Memory Scanner.
Tiny the T-Rex
Get away from me! I'm a time cop from the future, should be taken very seriously. This is a coupon for a tanning salon! Okay, you got me. I'm not a cop, but I really am from the future, and there really is this Bowler Hat Guy. Here we go again. He stole a time machine, came to the science fair and ruined your project. My project didn't work because I'm no good. There is no Bowler Hat Guy, there is no time machine, and you're not from the future!
Meet The Robinsons Script - transcript from the screenplay and/or animated time travel movie
I am not crazy. Oh, yeah, Captain Time Travel? Yeah, that's what I thought. I'm just gonna go lock myself in my room and hide under the covers for a couple years. If I prove to you I'm from the future, will you go back to the science fair? Yeah, sure, whatever you say. Hey, let go of me! Let go of me! Where are we going? The future has arrived The future has arrived today The future has arrived The future has arrived today Is this proof enough for you?
I never thought that time travel could be possible in my lifetime, and here it is, right in front of me! The truth will set you free, brother. This is beyond anything I could've imagined. This means I could really change my life. Next stop, science fair, to fix your Memory Scanner. Hey, I'm not gonna fix that stupid Memory Scanner.
Why should I fix my dumb invention when you can take me to see my mom now in this ship? I could actually go back to that night and stop her from giving me up. The answer is not a time machine. You want to know what I think about this? What are you doing? I'm sorry, Wilbur, but you don't know what I've lived through. Yes, I am, 'cause you're 12, and I'm That makes me older. Well, I was born in the past, which makes me older and the boss of you!
I am so dead. I'm not allowed to look at this thing, let alone drive it! Mom and Dad are gonna kill me, and I can tell you this. It will not be done with mercy. Isn't there like a time machine repair shop - or something?
There's only two time machines in existence, and the Bowler Hat Guy has the other one! Well, somebody's gonna have to fix this. I can't fix this thing. All right, under one condition.
I fix it, you take me back to see my mom. You didn't even follow through on our last deal. How can I trust you? Well, you told me you were a time cop from the future.
So do we have a deal? I must speak with the man in charge immediately. I'll let Smith know, and I'll have your dry cleaning delivered directly to your suite.
What time is your appointment? Big hand is on the Mary is short for Oh, I love checklists. The board is ready to see you now. What am I going to say? I'm never gonna remember that. Why don't you go? You do it so much better than me. A hat without a head couldn't really pass off an invention as its own. I'm so glad I have you! Prepare to be amazed!
You have two minutes. Well, I like to call it my To call it my The sun, in my eyes. Well, then let me close the blinds. We can quibble about names at a later date. The point is, what I have here is special, unique. Yes, you must love it and buy it and mass produce it, and the best part is, it's got really comfy headphones. I wonder, could you lean forward just a little bit, please? Yes, they are quite comfortable.
What do you hope to accomplish with this? Oh, nothing of consequence.
I simply wish to crush the dreams of a poor little orphan boy! After that, it's all a little fuzzy. You mean, you haven't thought this through? Allow me to show you how it works.
First, we turn it on. So where do I sign? Doris, it's all over. All our hopes and dreams dashed, like so many pieces of a broken machiney thing. Success is still ours for the taking. We must find that boy. We'll sneak this thing into the garage. You'll have all the tools you need. What about your parents? Mom never goes in there, and Dad's on a business trip until tomorrow morning. You've got till then to fix it. Well, fine, but I'm gonna need some blueprints or something for this.
I got someone who could help us with that. Who dares to disturb my sanctuary? None may enter unless they speak the royal password. Carl, what are you talking about? We don't have a password. I made one up while you were gone. Well, then how am I supposed to know what it is?
Welcome back, little buddy. So what's up with the stolen time machine? Did you find it? Apparently not, and you managed to bust this one as well. It'll be fixed before Dad gets home. And how do you suppose that's gonna Well, that was unexpected. If my family finds out I brought you from the past, they'll bury me alive and dance on my grave. Well, yes, I am, but not the point. The point is, your hair's a dead giveaway. Why would my hair be a dead giveaway?
That is an excellent question. Where are you going? But I don't just want to sit here. Hey, ring my doorbell. No, no, no, no, ring my doorbell. Look at this door bell. That's an accidental ring.
It's in the rule book. What do you mean, don't go to the family? How can we not go to the family in this time of family crisis? By leaving the garage door unlocked, you let the time machine get stolen, and now the entire time stream could be altered!
That and someone took my bike. Look, I told you. It's gonna all work out. First, we keep Lewis in the garage, away from everybody. I show up and give him the pep talk of the century. Then he fixes the time machine. Why is it an acorn? I didn't have time to sculpt everything. Okay, now, the time machine is fixed. His confidence in inventing is restored. He goes back to the science fair, fixes his Memory Scanner, thus restoring the space-time continuum. What about taking him back to see his mom?
I just told him that to buy some time. Oh, yeah, can't see that one blowing up in your face. I got it under control. Wilbur Robinson never fails. But on the slight chance that I do I'll run the numbers.
It doesn't pertain to anything in You know, there's not necessarily And where does that leave me? Alone, rusting in a corner. What am I worried about? If this thing ever blows over, I really gotta get away from you and get some quiet time. Well, hey, there, little fella! Now, I know what you're thinking, and my clothes are not on backwards. Oh, I used to tell that one to my science students. They didn't laugh, either.
Anywho, what's your name, fruit-head? Well, say, Lewis, you haven't seen any teeth around here, have you? Been digging holes all day. Can't find them anywhere. All right, look, old man, I need to get back to the garage. Wilbur left me down there, and I wasn't supposed to leave, and these monsters There's no monsters on the porch, you ninny. Hope he ain't got rabies. Old man, I need to get to the garage!
Well, sure, I'll get you there in a jiffy. I know a shortcut. Welcome to the garage. Well, I'm completely lost. Lewis and me are looking for the garage. Lewis, will you give me a hand and time my race? Okay, Gaston, my toy train's ready for you. That's a toy train? On your mark, get set, go? Okay, Lewis, I got the blueprints. Keep those tummies tucked. This isn't the garage.
I don't think the garage is in here, either. A very grave matter, indeed. Quad Four, Alpha Omega Galaxy, needs a large cheese-and-sausage thin-crust? I'll be there in 30 minutes, or it's free. Laszlo, you stop painting my hat, or I'm telling Ma! Your mother is trying to take a nap. What is all the yelling out here? I don't want to hear any more! I'm going for a drive! She usually takes the Harley.
I think my wife Lucille's baking cookies. Bake them cookies, Lucille! Why is your dog wearing glasses?
Oh, 'cause his insurance won't pay for contacts. That's Uncle Spike, and there's Uncle Dimitri. Oh, no, Lewis, that's our butler, Lefty. Nice to meet you. Hey, Lefty, any idea how to get to the garage? We didn't ask her yet. I think you'll like her. You ask me over And over and over Have you seen My peacock-feathered hat? Taught them everything they know. We need someone on maracas. Where is your heart at? Nobody knows that Even though you've him, her, me And an army searching I've got a feeling You will be reeling When you are bad And the circus comes to town Grandpa, I think I found your teeth.
And you see me leaving Dressed up as a magician Or something like that Sarsaparilla! My teeth are back! Well, glad I could help with the teeth, but, wow, look at the time. Lewis, I told you to stay in the garage! I did, but I went up the tube, and I ran into your family, and I You met my family?
Who have you met, and what have you learnt? Bud, Fritz and Joe are brothers. Fritz is married to Petunia, and is she Tallulah and Laszlo are their children. Joe is married to Billie. Lefty is the butler. Spike and Dimitri are twins, and I don't know who they're related to. Lucille is married to Bud, and your dad, Cornelius, is their son. What does Cornelius look like? Okay, Cornelius is married to Franny, and her brothers are Gaston and Art.
Wilbur is the son of Franny and Cornelius. And nobody realised you were from the past? Thank you very much. Doris, get it off! I've got you now. No, Lewis is my stupid roommate. My name's Mike Yagoobian. People call me Goob, but today, everyone that beat me up called me "puke face" and "butterfingers" and "booger breath.
I didn't mean to Well, I was just looking for Lewis. He's always up there being dumb. Why didn't I think of that? Mr Steak, you're my only friend. Game didn't go so well, huh?
No, I fell asleep in the ninth inning, and I missed the winning catch. Then I got beat up. Afterwards, Coach took me aside and told me to let it go. Everyone will tell you to let it go and move on, but don't. Instead, let it fester and boil inside of you. Take these feelings and lock them away. Let them fuel your actions. Let hate be your ally, and you will be capable of wonderfully horrid things. Heed my words, Goob. Don't let it go.
Where is that boy? Separate and look for clues. Look what I found! Now, what did you find? That plus my stick must mean I don't even know what I'm doing. I mean, this stuff is way too advanced for me. And what if I can't fix this? Why do you keep saying that? And don't just say, "Keep moving forward. Why would his motto be "keep moving forward"? It's what he does. What's that supposed to mean? Robinson Industries, the world's leading scientific-research-and-design factory.
My dad runs the company. They mass produce his inventions. His motto, "Keep moving forward. Carl, the time machine, the travel tubes. Your dad invented the time machine? Five years ago, Dad wakes up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. He wants to build a time machine, so he starts working. We're talking scale models. Dark day at the Robinson house. Prototypes two and three, not much better. Number six, 58,and they all end the same way. But he doesn't give up.
Dude, I can't take you seriously in that hat. He keeps working and working until finally he gets it, the first working time machine. Then he keeps working and working until finally he gets it again, the second working time machine. I'm assuming that's a joke. I'm ignoring you for time reasons. This, my friend, is merely a model because, unfortunately, time machine number two is in the hands of the Bowler Hat Guy.
Now, are you ready to start working? I think that's it. I knew you could. Nice work, my friend.
Well, you know what they say! If you aren't up here in five minutes, I'm gonna come down and get you! We'd better get up there. Let's get that boy! But I want to look, too. I didn't even know you could do that.
Let's take her out for a spin.
