[Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl and Frozone sitting on a couch inside a screening room. Winston Deavor standing before them]
Winston: Let me ask you something. What is the main reason you were all forced underground?
Bob: Ignorance.
Winston: Perception. [Walks to the screen as it shows several footages] Take today, for example, with the Underminer. Difficult situation, you were faced with a lot of hard decisions.
Bob: Ugh, tell me about it.
Winston: I can't. Because I didn't see it. Neither did anyone else, so when you fight bad guys, like today, people don't see the fight or what led up to it. They see what politicians tell them to see. They see destruction, and they see you. So if we want to change people's perceptions about superheroes, we need you to share your perceptions with the world.
Helen: How do we do that?
Evelyn: With cameras.
[She clicks a button on her remote and footage of Winston appears on the screen in several images from different angles]
Winston: [from the footage] We need you to share your perceptions with the world.
Helen: [from the footage] How do we do that?
Evelyn: We embed tiny cameras, like those, into your supersuits.
[Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and Frozone looks at the mini-camera on their access card as they appear on the screen].
Helen: [impressed] Wow! So small, and the picture is outstanding!
Evelyn: Thanks. Designed 'em myself.
Winston: We've got resources, lobbyists, world wide connections, and, very important, insurance.
Bob: Insurance is key.
Winston: All we need now are the superest superheros. It means you three. Come on! Help me make all Supers legal again!
Bob: [stands up with excitement] This sounds GREAT! Let's get this goin'! What's my first assignment?
Winston: [sits down Mr. Incredible, gently] That enthusiasm is golden. Hold on to it, but to our first move, well... [turns to Helen] Elastigirl is our best play.
Bob: [surprised] Better than me? [Helen clears her throat, glaring at her husband with a strict look] I mean, she's good. She's, uh... really a credit to her, but uh... you know? You know?
Winston: With great respect, let's not test the whole "insurance will pay for everything" idea on the first go-round, okay?
[Elastigirl and Frozone chuckle softly].
Bob: W-wait a minute! You're saying what? I'm... messy?
Winston: [hands Bob a dossier] Well, Evelyn did a cost-benefit analysis, comparing all your last five years crime-fighting before going underground. Elastigirl's numbers are self-explanatory.
Bob: Well, it's not a fair comparison. "Heavyweight problems need heavyweight solutions".
Winston: Of course, we're gonna solve all kind of problems together, after the perfect launch with Elastigirl!
Evelyn: So, what do you say?
Helen: What do I say? [chuckles nervously] I... don't know.
[Bob is laying on the bed in a motel room, wearing pajamas]
Bob: [to Helen] What do you mean you "don't know"? A few hours ago, you were saying it was over and being a superhero was a fantasy. Now you get the offer of a lifetime and you don't know?
Helen: [in the bathroom, while brushing her teeth] It's not that simple, Bob. I wanna protect the kids.
Bob: So do I.
Helen: From jail, Bob!
Bob: And how do you do that? By turning down a chance to change the law that forced them to hide what they are?
Helen: [walks to the bed and lays down] They haven't decided what they are. They're still kids.
Bob: Kids with powers, which makes them Supers. Whether they decide to use those powers or not, this will benefit them.
Helen: Look, it's not a good time to be away. Dash is having trouble with homework. Vi's worried about her first date with that boy she likes, Tony. And Jack-Jack...
Bob: Jack-Jack? What's wrong with him?
Helen: Okay, nothing's wrong with Jack-Jack. But even a normal baby needs a lot of attention. I'm just not sure I can leave.
Bob: Of course, you can leave. You've got to, so that I — we can be Supers again. So our kids can have that choice.
Helen: [chuckles] So you can have that choice?
Bob: [angrily] All right, yes! So I can have that choice, and I would do a GREAT JOB! Regardless of what Deavor's pie charts say! [Sighs] But they want you. [With a deep breath] And you'll do... a great... job. Too.
Helen: [sarcastically] That was excruciating to watch. [Bob chuckles] I can't lie to you. It's nice to be wanted. Flattering, you know? But...
Bob: What's the choice? One: do this right, get well paid, we're out of the motel, and things get better for all Supers, including our kids. Or two: I find a job in two weeks or we're homeless.
Helen: [sighs] You know it's crazy, right? To help my family, I gotta leave it. To fix the law, I gotta break it.
Bob: You'll be great.
Helen: I know I will. But what about you? We have kids.
Bob: I'll watch the kids, no problem. Easy.
Helen: Easy, huh? You're adorable. Well, if there is a problem, I'll drop this thing and come right back.
Bob: You won't need to. I've got it. You go, do this thing! [Lays down] Do it so... [Under his breath] I can do it better. [Helen hits his face with a pillow]
[In Winston Deavor's office the phone is ringing. He picks it up].
Winston: Deavor here.
Helen: This is Elastigirl. I'm in.
