The Emoji Movie quotes bring the laughs to the film about one emoji who doesn’t seem to fit in among the other emojis who live in one boy’s phone. The animated comedy movie was directed by Tony Leondis using a screenplay he co-wrote with Eric Siegel and Mike White. The Emoji Movie opened in theaters in the United States on July 28, 2017.
In The Emoji Movie, high school freshman Alex (voiced by Jake T. Austin) receives a text from his crush, Addie (voiced by Tati Gabrielle). But when Alex tries to respond with a meh emoji, Gene (voiced by T. J. Miller) makes the wrong face.
Gene has always felt out of place in a world where he’s supposed to be a meh emoji as he’s always felt a range of emotions, well beyond meh. But when he meets Jailbreak (voiced by Anna Paris), she sees a way for Gene to fix his mistake and feel better about himself at the same time. But to do that, they need to embark on a fantastic adventure through Alex’s phone.
He’s Making the Wrong Face
Phone: We have an incoming text. We are go for meh.
Gene: Who, me?
Bomb: What’s he doing?
Dizzy Face: He’s making the wrong face!
Addie: Huh? What the heck?
As Alex responds to Addie’s text with what is meant to be a meh emoji, the emoji team inside his phone prepares to send. So when in these The Emoji Movie quotes Gene makes the wrong face, the process ends horribly bad.
We’re Number Two
Poop: Okay, son, what do we do after we go potty?
Poop Jr.: Should we wash our hands?
Poop and Poop Jr.: Ha ha ha ha ha! We’re number two!
The Poop emojis seem to thoroughly enjoy toilet humor, as evidenced by these The Emoji Moviequotes. They’re proud to be number two and, apparently, covered in poo.
Welcome to the Loser Lounge
Hi-5: Welcome to the loser lounge where the emojis who never get used hang out.
Eggplant: What’s up Hi-5?
After Gene’s screw up, he is sent to the loser lounge. As Hi-5 explains, this is where the lesser-used emojis hang out to share their boring lives.
Pretty Cool Just the Way You Are
Jailbreak: I think you’re pretty cool just the way you are.
Gene: My feelings are huge. Maybe I’m meant to have more than just one emotion.
Gene’s always struggled with having too many emotions in a world where he should only have one, meh. So when Jailbreak says she likes him the way he is in these The Emoji Movie quotes, he has newfound hope for a happy life.
We Have to Get Through This
Jailbreak: First we have to get through this…
Jailbreak: What’s Alex’s girlfriend’s name again?
Hi-5: It was Tina.
Firewall: Access denied
Hi-5: Karen… Sarah… I want to say Lupita, but that doesn’t feel right now that I’m saying it out loud.
Gene, Jailbreak and Hi-5 try their best to get through Alex’s phone’s firewall. But considering none of them know the password or the name of Alex’s girlfriend, it doesn’t go too well.
Look Who Just Sent Me a Text
Alex: Look who just sent me a text!
Alex’s Friend: Addie McAlister?
Alex: Dude, shhh, she’s right there!
Alex: What should I write?
Alex’s Friend: Be chill
Alex’s Friend: Send her an emoji.
Alex: Okay, be cool
Alex receives a text message from his crush, Addie, in these The Emoji Movie quotes. But he doesn’t know how to respond, all he knows is that he can’t screw this up.
Never Eating Another Piece of Candy Ever Again
Hi-5: Ugh, I’m never eating another piece of candy ever again.
Gene: Hi-5, don’t do it. Don’t you do it. It’s already been in there once.
Hi-5 and Gene take an unexpected turn and find themselves in the Candy Crush game on Alex’s phone in these The Emoji Movie quotes. Afterward, Hi-5 mentions that he never wants to eat candy again, well, except that one piece that he just threw up.
I’ve Got to Have Some Sort of Purpose
Gene: I’m an emoji, I’ve got to have some sort of purpose here.
Jailbreak: I’m going to help you. We need to get off the phone and find the source code.
Gene: Then I can fit in.
When Gene is feeling out of place among the other emojis in these The Emoji Movie quotes, Jailbreak comes to his side. She sees a way to help him and needs to find the source code to do that.
I’m Supposed to Be a Meh
Gene: Welcome to the world inside your phone where everyone is expected to act one way their whole life. My name is Gene and I’m supposed to be a Meh, you know, like, “Meh, who cares?” but my problem is I have more than one emotion.
Mel: Son, please tell me you weren’t just laughing right now. What if you get sent out on the phone making the wrong face?
Gene: Dad, I’ll make the right face, and then I would finally fit in.
Mary: Sweetie, you’re so handsome when you make that face. I think he’s ready now.
Glen describes what his life is like as an emoji. Like his parents, he was supposed to be a meh emoji, but he struggles to fit in as he has more than one emotion in him.
