Megamind:
Here's my day so far: went to jail, lost the girl of my dreams and got my butt kicked pretty good. Still, things could be a lot worse. Oh, that's right... I'm falling to my death. Guess they can't. How did it all come to this, you ask? My end starts at the beginning...the very beginning! [Shows baby Megamind] Yes, that's me. I had a fairly standard childhood. I came from, what you might call, a broken home. Literally broken. I was 8 days old and still living with my parents. How sad is that? Clearly, it was time to move on. [just before a planet is pulled into a black hole, a couple places their child in a rocket ship and make a prophecy of his future that is cut off] I didn't quite hear that last part, but it sounded important. Destined for what? [just as the rocket ship leaves, another planet that gets pulled into the hole sends off their own rocket ship, and the two collide with each other and race to Earth] I set out to find my destiny. Turns out a kid from the Glaupunkt quadrant had the exact same idea. That was the day I met Mr. Goody-Two-Shoes, and our glorious rivalry was born! [they go to Earth. Megamind sees a fancy home] Could this be what I was destined for? A dream life filled with luxury? [Metro Man's ship knocks Megamind's away from the house before he can reach it] Apparently not! Even fate picks its favourties. No big deal. A much different fate awaited me. [Megamind's ship crash-lands into a prison] Luckily, I found a lovely little place to call home, a place that taught me the differences between right and wrong. Mr. Goody-Two-Shoes, on the other hand, had life handed to him on a silver platter, the power of flight, invulnerability, and great hair. But I had something far, far greater: my amazing intellect, and knack for building objects of mayhem. [Young Megamind's invention causes many prisoners to be free, angering the warden] After a few years, and with some time off for good behavior, I was given an opportunity to better myself through learning at a strange place called "shool". It was there that I once again ran into Mr. Goody-Two-Shoes. He had already amassed a gigantic army of soft-headed groupies. He bought their affections with showmanship and extravagant gifts of deliciousness. So, I, too, would make this popp-ed corn and win over those mindless drones. [One day, he tried to do so, but horribly failed] That's when I learned a very hard lesson: good receives all the praise and adulation while evil is sent to quiet time in the corner. So fitting in wasn't really an option. While they were learning the Itsy Bitsy Spider, I learned how to dehydrate animate objects and rehydrate them at will. Somedays, it felt like it was just me and Minion against the world. No matter how hard I tried, I was always the odd man out, the last one picked, the screw-up, the black sheep, the bad boy. Was this my destiny? Wait! Maybe it was. Being bad is the one thing I'm good at. Then it hit me: if I was the bad boy, then I was going to be the baddest boy of them all! I was destined to be a supervillain, and we were destined to be rivals. The die had been cast, and so began an enduring, epic, lifelong career, and I loved it! Our battles quickly got more elaborate. He would win some, I would almost win others. He took the name: Metro Man, defender of Metrocity. I decided to pick something a little more humble: Megamind, incredibly handsome criminal genius and master of all villainy!

Megamind:
What on earth is that?

Minion:
It seems to be emanating from there, sir. [points to Megamind's pants]

Megamind:
[pulls out the cell phone from his back pocket and answers it] Ollo...

Minion:
It's "hello".

Megamind:
Oh. [speaking into the cell phone] Hello? [whispers to Minion] Like that? [Minion gives him a thumbs up]

Roxie:
Bernard, it's Roxanne.

Megamind:
[whispering to Minion] It's Roxanne!

Roxie:
I just want to thank you for inspiring me the other day.

Megamind:
Oh! You inspired me too.

Roxie:
Great. It's time we stood up to Megamind and show him he can't push us around.

Megamind:
Oh! Oh, really? [whispers to Minion] She's so cute!

Roxie:
I'm already hot on his trail.

Megamind:
Uh-huh, and what gives you that idea?

Minion:
Uh, sir...?

Roxie:
I just found his secret hideout! [appears on the security TV screens]

Megamind:
[shouting] How did she find my hideout?! [back onto the cell phone] Uh… how did you find his hideout?

Roxie:
This is the only building in Metro City with a fake observatory on the roof.

[Pause]

Megamind:
Okay. [to Minion] Yhere's no way she'll find the secret entrance.

Roxie:
[gasps excitedly] There's a doormat here that says "Secret Entrance"!

Megamind:
[turns around angrily] Minion!

Minion:
[nervous] I kept forgetting where it was…

Megamind:
She’ll discover all our secrets! [shoves him in a cabinet] You dimwitted creation of SCIENCE!

Roxie:
What?

Megamind:
What? Oh, no. Not you, Roxanne. No, I was just yelling at my mother's... urn. Don't do anything, I'll be right there.

Minion:
Well you seem in a very good mood tonight, sir.

Megamind:
Ha? How long is this going to take, Minion?

Minion:
Just a few alterations, sir, and I will be done with your most terrifying cape yet! I’m calling it the Black Mambaaaaa…!

Megamind:
Black Mamba. Perfect! Ooh, gosh, I am running late. I have to go.

Minion:
What? Where are you going, sir? We have our debut battle with Titan tomorrow morning. We haven't even tested your big battle suit yet!

Megamind:
You attend to the details, Minion. I have to... run a quick errand.

Minion:
[suspicious] You don't run errands. What's going on here?

Megamind:
What?

Minion:
Oh, wait a minute! [sniffs Megamind suspiciously] Are you wearing "Jean Paul Gaultier's Pour Homme"?

Megamind:
It's just my natural musk. Now, where the car keys? Ah!

Minion:
[grabs them] Ah ah-ah-ah! This is about Ms. Ritchi, isn't it? You're going on a date with her!

Megamind:
What? [laughs] No, my main man! Get out of town!

Minion:
Oh, this is bad… this is bad! You've fallen in love with her!

Megamind:
You are forgetting your place, Minion. Now give me the keys! [groans]

Minion:
[stretches the arm in which his hand is holding the car key, scoffs] What happens when Roxanne finds out who you really are?

Megamind:
She'll never find out! That's the point of "lying". [pushes a button on Minion’s robotic body which makes his stretched arm fall, grabs the keys] Honestly, if I didn't know any better, I'd think this was your first day of being evil.

Minion:
No! [turns the car invisible] This has gone far enough! [drops the keys in his fishbowl head]

Megamind:
Oh, that was really grown up!

Minion:
Sir, sir, please. It's for your own good.

Megamind:
Oh, what do you know?!

Minion:
I may not know much, but I do know this - the bad guy doesn't get the girl!

Megamind:
Well, maybe I don't want to be the bad guy anymore!

[Minion screams in absolute shock at what Megamind has just said]

Megamind:
[looks around sheepishly] You heard me?!

Minion:
[whispers in disgust] Who are you...?

Megamind:
Now, give me the keys!

Minion:
No! [turns the car visible] My sole purpose in life is to look after you!

Megamind:
Well, I don't need you to look after me!

Minion:
[visibly hurt] What are you...? What are you saying, you don't... need me?

Megamind:
Let me make it clear. Code - I don't need you!

Minion:
You know what, you know what?! [ejects the keys out his fishbowl head; they land on the car and Megamind picks them up] Code - I'll just pack my thing and go! [puts fish food in a lunchbox]

Megamind:
Code - fine!

Minion:
Code - fine back! [gets on his scooter and begins to leave] Well, good luck on your date!

Megamind:
I will!

Minion:
That doesn't even make any sense!

Megamind:
I know!

Megamind:
Were you even planning to show up? [notices all the items Hal "has"] What's this? Where did you get all this stuff?

Titan:
[whispers] It doesn't belong to me.

Megamind:
You stole it!?

Titan:
Pretty cool, right?

Megamind:
No, no, no, no! You're a hero!

Titan:
Being a hero is for losers. It's work, work, work, 24/7, and for what? I only took the gig to get the girl and it turns out Roxanne doesn't want anything to with me.

Megamind:
Roxanne Ritchi?

Titan:
Yeah, Roxanne Ritchi. I saw her having dinner and making googly eyes at some intellectual dweeb.

Megamind:
Oh…

Titan:
Who needs all that noise? That's why I think we... should team up.

Megamind:
You... Wait, what?

Titan:
With my power and your... big-headedness, we could rule the city!

Megamind:
You want to team up?!

Titan:
Yeah, I even drew up new costume designs. See?

Megamind:
Costume designs?

Titan:
You'd be the brains, so you get a little brain wearing glasses on your costume or something, and since I'm the cool one, I'd have, like, 2 tanks sword fighting–

[Megamind backs off in absolute disbelief]

Megamind:
I can't believe you. All your gifts, all your powers, and you... you squander them for your own personal gain!

Titan:
Yes!

Megamind:
No! I'm the villain, you're the good guy! I do something bad and you come and get me! That's why I created you!

Titan:
Yeah, right. You're nuts! Space Dad told me–

Megamind:
Look, I'm your Space Dad! [transforms into Hal's Space Dad in front of him] You should be more like Metro Man.

Titan:
Ah! You tricked me?

Megamind:
Oh, don't like that, huh? Well there's more! [transforms into Bernard as he slowly backs up into his giant robot battle suit] I'm also the "intellectual dweeb" dating Roxanne.

Titan:
No.

Megamind:
...And we were smooching up a storm! [makes kissing noises as he closes his giant robot battle suit]

Titan:
[enraged] When I get my hands on you, I'm gonna–

Megamind:
Yes, yes. I know. "...Bring me to justice." Oh, god. How'd I miss this? [Titan attacks him] And the hero strikes the first blow, but evil returns with a backhand!
