Ever been in need of of a quick-witted comeback only to come up empty in the moment? It’s okay, we’ve all been there. And thanks to these examples of sheer awesomeness from Disney movies, we’ll never have to be there again. Without further ado, we present, Disney comebacks for any (and every) occasion.
“Dishonor on your whole family!” – Mushu, Mulan
Use this comeback when provoked, but beware: dishonor is a big deal. Don’t underestimate the power of this comeback.
“When I am queen, I will have the power to get rid of you.” – Princess Jasmine, Aladdin
This one is special. For particular use when someone has annoyed you. People don’t mess with queens. #Fact
“Ha-ha! Take a look at that you pompous windbag!” – The King, Cinderella
For this comeback, be prepared by having something really cool with you all the time, (your favorite pin or vinylmation perhaps) to bust out while shouting the above, and simultaneously becoming everyone’s hero.
“No.” – Carl, Up
Quick. Efficient. To the point. Versatile. It may be the perfect, unexpected, comeback.
“Forgive me for not leaping for joy. Bad back, you know.” – Scar, The Lion King
This one is genius. Why? Because you not only get to be sarcastic, (always a plus) but you’ll also get sympathy for mentioning the bad back.
“You’re a sad, strange little man, and you have my pity.” – Buzz Lightyear, Toy Story
Let’s be honest, this is the greatest. Use frequently and with fervor.
“_______, you are positively primeval.” – Belle, Beauty and the Beast
Insert anyone’s name in the space above and you have just become our hero.
“Here comes the smolder.” – Flynn Rider, Tangled
The smolder is an (almost) foolproof comeback for any scenario. Its power shouldn’t be underestimated. Just make sure no one happens to be holding a frying pan when you enter smolder mode.
“I understand everything…except that wig.” – Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
This comeback requires the person on the receiving end to be wearing a wig (or hair plugs, or just to be having a really bad hair day), so just consider that before going here. #WorthIt
“The word I’m searching for I can’t say, because there’s preschool toys present.” – Woody, Toy Story
Another gem. Bonus: You’ll look really classy protecting the innocence of those preschool toys.
“I knew you weren’t suited for literature.” – Gonzo, The Muppet Christmas Carol
What. a. zinger. The person you say this to will cower in shame. COWER, we say!
“Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” – Every character, Mary Poppins
We know the sound of it is really quite atrocious, but that’s the point. It’s the chameleon of comebacks– it means whatever you want and/or need it to mean! Use with abundance.
“I’m through with all of you! I’ll get even. Just wait.” – Cruella De Vil, One Hundred and One Dalmatians
Okay, so this one is decidedly creepy. We suggest only using in extreme situations or if you really want to freak someone out. Totally up to you.
“You really delight in this sadistic strain on my blood pressure, don’t you?” – Grimsby, The Little Mermaid
Another double whammy. Guaranteed to elicit pity and guilt. The person on the other end of this comeback will be putty in your hands! Muahahha! (We got a little carried away there. We apologize).
“I’ll know he’s the one when he makes me laugh.” – Minnie Mouse
Boom. Say this whenever anyone asks you why you’re still single.
“We are not a codfish.” – Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins
This makes list for two reasons: 1. The use of the royal “we” is flawless, and 2. Say this to anyone and they’ll be so bewildered that they’ll have to slowly back out of the room. #Winning
There you have it. Use any and all of these comebacks regularly and you will generally win at life. Good for you. Never again will you have nothing to say. You’re welcome.
