Your Quest Ends Here: Onward Movie Quotes From Barley
I love Barley. Like, a lot. It doesn’t hurt that Chris Pratt is one of my top 3 Marvel Chrises – yeah, I know, I know… but like, how do you choose?!
So I’ll admit a little Marvel movie-loving bias here, but he really had some sweet lines and moments in Onward.
And that’s why I felt he deserves to be featured in this Onward movie quotes post.
All movie quotes are from Barley unless otherwise noted.
1. By the laws of yore, I must dub thee a man today. Kneel before me.
2. No way! It’s a wizard staff. Dad was a wizard!
3. For a spell to work, you have to speak from your heart’s fire!
4. Hearts fire! Don’t hold back!
5. My little brother has the magic gift!
6. (about Dad) There’s no top part. I definitely remember him having a top part!
7. We’ve only got twenty-four hours to bring back the rest of Dad. We’re going on a quest!
8. Barley: Come, dear brother, our destiny awaits.
Ian: Okay. I’m coming. I’m coming.

Barley: I see you’ve brought sustenance for our adventure.

10. Gather your courage men, we have arrived!
11. Hear that, Dad? He’s a smart kid, he just doesn’t know how a quest works.

16. Ian: I can’t do this.

18. (to Ian) You can do this. I believe in you.
19. What we need is a spell that creates a magical bridge you can on. If you believe the bridge is there, then it’s there.
20. Ian Lightfoot is fearless!
21. Ian: I needed that rope!
Barely: Oh— but did you?
22. You’re not running from the cops, you’re running from our mom’s boyfriend. (looks back) Okay, now you’re running from the cops.
23. Brace yourself, young Mage! I know all about magic.
24. That’s when I decided I’d never be scared again.
