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. 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— Wilbur: Who have you met, and what have you learned?
Bud, Fritz, and Joe are brothers. Fritz is married to Petunia, and is she? Tallulah and Lazslo 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. Bud is married to Lucille, and Cornelius is their son.
Wilbur is the son of Franny and Cornelius. And no one realized that you were from the past? Hold your applause, thank you very much. I mean, this stuff is way too advanced for me. And what if I can't fix this, what are we gonna do?
Why do you keep saying that? And don't just say "keep moving forward". It's my dad's motto. Why would his motto be "keep moving forward"? It's what he does. What's that supposed to mean? That is an excellent question. 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". What's going on, why aren't you seizing the boy?!? I'm just not sure how well this plan was thought through.
And so it begins. Surely that is not the best you can do. Your skills are strong, but not strong enough. Your words do not threaten me, brother.

Now the real battle begins. Your meatballs are useless against me. Then perhaps it's time for spicy Italian sausage. Is dinner like this every night? Yesterday we had meatloaf. You are now under my control. I am now under your control. Don't repeat everything I say. I won't repeat everything you say. Uh, did you just say "excellent" because I said "excellent"? What if Louis Armstrong said, "I can't"? You think he'd have walked on the moon? Dear, Louis Armstrong was a singer. Why are you doing this to me?
I never did anything to you! Let's see if this rings a bell - Father of the future, inventor extraordinaire, "Keep moving forward"? That's not me, that's Wilbur's dad!
Lewis' eyes go wide in realisation] Are you saying that Oh, Give the boy a prize! You grow up to be the founder of this wrenched time So I planned to destroy your destiny! Easy-peasy, rice and cheesy!
So, if I'm Wilbur's dad Uh, if I'm Wilbur's dad I bet you're glad to see me! That's for not locking the garage door! You gotta admit, this'll be a great story to tell me someday! Lewis, you have to fix the Time Machine! No, no, I—I can't! So they must be coming from there.
You might be able to stop them if you destroy those tubes. For some reason they aren't using the green tubes. I don't remember where they go, but they should be safe for you to use.
Here ya go Lewis. Use my blueprint and find the pieces, you'll be able to stop those awful hats. Oh and don't forget to look for batteries too.

You've got to be able to power your invention. If you don't then you could be in big trouble. That travel tube over there should take you to Franny in the Music Room. Good luck Lewis, we'll be rooting for you! Lewis enters the Music Room. Well this is the Music Room alright. Now, I wonder where Franny is? I'm sure that giant bowler hat didn't used to be there. Not a good sign. I bet little Doris is hiding out inside that giant Doris.
In which case, I should probably make my way up to the top floor. It's the middle of the day and no one is working. Thanks for rescuing me. I'm worried about my frogs, Lewis.

Have you seen them? I haven't seen them since just before those hats started to attack. Could you please let them know it's safe to come back to the Music Room? Hey, this looks like the Time Reversal Lab. I could definitely invent something amazing in here. He enters the room. This is not good. I've got to move quickly and then get back to the Time Machine.
Just as I planned. Now to the Time Machine. This floor has to be where that army of bowler hats has come from. I better check it out. Hey, is that Uncle Joe? Hey Uncle Joe, wait up! Cool, the Rocket Boots Laboratory! These will definitely come in handy! That looks like Uncle Art's ship over there. How many of these little Dorises are there? I can't think of that now. I have to get to the Time Machine and wipe them out. I made it to the lab! Hey there you are. I want to help Carl.
We're gonna have to do this the hard way. Mom's going to send me to miltary school. Lewis contacts him from Cornelius's lab. Can you hear me? Carl just patched me into the intercom system. Now, it's super important that you listen to me. In a minute, Carl is going to remotely release the door locks to the top floor. Inside there four generators that power a forcefield protecting the giant Doris on top of the building.
You must destroy those generators. Little Doris has her strongest armies around them, so be careful. Just after the whole Time Travel adventure has succeeded in setting right what once went wrong, Cornelius Robinson, Lewis' future self, arrives home just in time to see the time machines missing and Lewis standing with the rest of the family.
Well, he's home early. Because you can totally crack the hippocampus with a TV screen, a fan, a vacuum cleaner, a bottle of Mountain Dew and a Discman. Oh, and really comfy headphones. Parodied during a food fight between Franny and her brother, where they talk like characters in a badly dubbed Martial Arts Movie and their lip movements don't match what they're saying.
The truth is a lot more sinister: Uh, what do you hope to accomplish with this? Oh, nothing of consequence, I simply wish to Uh, after that, it's You mean you haven't thought this through? Frankie the Frog, B. Now, my slave, seize the boy! Bring him to me. Did you not hear what I said, you idiot? Grab the boy and bring him! Well, it's just that there's a million people over there, and I have little arms. I'm just not so sure how well this plan was thought through Now, go get that boy!
Why aren't you seizing the boy? I have a big head Ugh, stupid, stupid, stupid! It Runs in the Family: And it runs in about four different actual families. Averted with Goob, whose evolution into a villain is only due to his constant dwelling on a painful event and subsequent refusal to keep doing what he loves, implied to be baseball.
Played somewhat straight with the gym teacher, but even he acknowledges Lewis' achievement in the end. Played straight when Goob loses the game by missing his catch and his teammates beat him up, calling him names. Later averted by older Goob's schoolmates, who are nice to him and invite him to "hang out".
Unfortunately, by that time, he has spent so much time pitying himself that he's become too bitter to notice when people are genuinely nice to him.
It's implied that Bowler Hat Guy will be Ret Gone from existence when he saves his younger self from dropping the baseball and thus turning evil. The way he leaves Wilbur without saying goodbye implies that he knows this and doesn't want to make a fuss about it. While "Keep Moving Forward" is clearly the moral here, it's not exactly clear if that's always a good idea.
Bowler Hat Guy does this after he offers to take Lewis back to find his mom if he repairs the Memory Scanner. Bowler Hat Guy's entire motivation for his time-traveling villainy is to ruin Lewis' life and his future as genius inventor Cornelius Robinson. At one point, the city skyline of is match-cut to a city skyline prior to the Bowler Hat Guy's attempt to present the Memory Scanner at the InventCo offices. Discussed, where Carl, before sending Lewis back in time, asks him to invent him with a more muscular design.
And it actually comes through. As mentioned above, the writers' time travel logic makes no sense when you think about it. It'd work out a lot better if the Dinosaur didn't show up again when the family said goodbye to Lewis. The very first scene has Lewis as an infant being left at Mildred's orphanage by his mother. Towards the end of the film, the sunny, idealistic Utopian society transforms suddenly into a bleak, polluted world controlled by evil hats.
From optimistic future to zombie apocalypse in five minutes and then back again, and not all at once either -- in a sweeping movement. Lewis meets up with his future self toward the end of the movie. Named by the Adaptation: In the book, the protagonist was unnamed. Well, it's a long and pitiful story, about a young boy with a dream, a dream of winning a Little League championship If I hadn't fallen asleep, I would have caught the ball, and we would have won!
It was then that I realized it wasn't my fault Never Trust a Trailer: This trailer made it seem like the film is about two intelligent inventors trying to create the greatest invention ever. Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Wilbur forgets to close the garage door, and allows Bowler Hat Guy to steal one of the time machines: Wilbur, make sure you shut that door tight, or else the alarm won't engage.
I went to your house, snuck in the garage, and stole the time machine. All thanks to that pointy-haired little kid who forgot to lock the garage door. Even Carl, the robot butler, makes reference to this incident earlier in the film: What do you mean don't go to the family? How can we not go to the family is this type 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!
No Celebrities Were Harmed: When Doris pulls herself down over the eyes of one of the Robinson Industries lab assistants, his face resembles Stan Laurel's. No New Fashions in the Future: We have flying cars and robot buddies and bubblevators, but all the cool kids wear T-shirts, jeans and Converse All-Stars. Well, a few of the characters do wear Jetsons-like jumpsuits. Cousin Tallulah is a fashion designer, which explains her skyscraper hat.
Nobody Here but Us Birds Lewis: Will you quit that, please? I know you're not a pigeon! Not once but three times, when Wilbur is asked a question, he replies with "That is an excellent question! On a fourth occasion he actually follows it up with an answer. Obsessed Are the Listmakers: Bowler Hat Guy loves checklists and is often seen ticking off items in his, such as "Steal time machine", "Ruin science fair", and "Get that [comic book swearing symbols] boy".
Only Known by Their Nickname: A lot of minor characters have similar character models and even a few main character models are reused with Art's appearing in Midtown University and Franny's model also serving as Lewis' mother. Lewis props the tyrannosaur's jaws open with a shovel. It is kinda strange that his future wife almost adopted him. When she realized the truth she became pretty squicked out about it herself too.
Pick Your Human Half: I think we all know what side Carl and the super-intelligent DOR are on. One of the more surprising ones of the last decade — Bowler Hat Guy is really Mike Yagoobian, the somewhat nice, low energy, short, slightly chubby kid Lewis shared a room with at the orphanage.
Bowler Hat Guy since he never let one childhood trauma go and thus kept a child-like mentality.
Red Eyes, Take Warning: The first time she controlled a human, Doris' eye went from green to red. Bizarrely, an in-universe example. Near the end, Lewis is about to be attacked by the evil robot hat Doris — who was angry at being locked up as a failed invention after she turned out to be renegade. Suddenly, Lewis glares at Doris and says, "I am never going to invent you.
That's right, weaponized Retcon. Wilbur is also temporarily Ret Goned. It's implied that this will happen to Bowler Hat Guy, as by stopping his younger self from dropping the fateful baseball, the evil version of himself will be erased from existence. There are Insta-Buildings in the future, skyscrapers that go from ground level to completion in literally a few seconds. Ridiculously Successful Future Self: Founder of the future, inventor extraordinaire Cornelius Robinson Wilbur's father Cornelius Robinson is a brilliant inventor and industrialist who practically built the entire Utopian world of the future single-handedly.
Both the singing frog and T. The Pooh mention is pretty Hilarious in Hindsightas the directors of this went on to do the Pooh film. Goob's baseball team is called the Dinos, a Shout-Out to William Joyce's book Dinosaur Bob, which is about a dinosaur who plays baseball. In the ballpark where Goob's game is being held, there is a poster of Disney's "The Jungle Book" in the background. Art reminisces about an adventure to "the black moon of Qward". Apparently all you need to calm down Sinestro is some good meatball pizza.
When Bowler Hat Guy uses the time machine to fetch a dinosaur, it's a Tyrannosaurus rex. The Story That Never Was: Lewis Robinson discovers the far future is an ugly dystopia where humanity is a Slave Race to mechanized overlords. Strange Minds Think Alike: Happens to Bowler Hat Guy. If the CEO of a large company, a talking frog, and a T-Rex all ask you if your plan was well thought outmaybe you need to improve on your villain skills.
