Netflix’s The Mitchells vs. the Machines utterly surprised and delighted us when it dropped at the end of last month, and we haven’t stopped thinking about it.

The feel-good animated movie helps us remember the true meaning of family with the help of vibrant animation and a robot apocalypse, and it’s super funny too. If it’s also been on your mind, keep reading for our favorite quotes from the film to try as your next Instagram caption.

For that shot of you and your group, together but not exactly organized:

“Look out, robots, because we’re brave, we are hungry for action and we’re strapped in for success. And we have no idea what we’re doing.”
