Season 1

The Bubbler

Ugh, Plagg! Get that filthy piece of Camembert out of my face!
Nino, wait! I'm sorry. My father, he's pretty stubborn. It's just best to stay out of his way.
Wow, that was a birthday lunch break to remember. Yay.
This might be the first day in my life that I actually get to do what I want for once.
Thank you. I mean, please say thank you to my father for me.
Yeah, can you believe my dad got this [scarf] for me? It's so awesome. He's been giving me the same lame pen for three years in a row.

Mr. Pigeon

Wow Alya, those are some awesome designs. I didn't know you had such mad skills.
You're super talented, Marinette. You seriously have a good chance of winning.
Where's that bird-brain Mr. Pigeon?
My pigeon radar is on high alert.
A-a-achoo! Sorry, I'm allergic to feathers.

Stormy Weather

Hey, Ice Queen, what's with all the terrorizing? Why don't you pick on someone your own temperature?
Listen, I'm feline more generous than usual today. So cool down and we'll call it quits, 'kay?
Frosty the Snowgirl's getting away [...] Do I hear a damsel in distress?
Great. So, we're about to be obliterated, but... at least we'll be dry.


Let me guess. We're all playing a game of tag and you're it?
Which life? I've got nine.
Two Ladybugs? I'm in heaven!
Ahhh... [Ladybug]'ll fall for me someday. It's just a matter of time.


These statues are amazing. One thing's slightly, off though — I'm actually taller than Ladybug.
Hey, don't mean to burst your bubble, but you know, Ladybug and me, we're a thing, you know?
Not only is that person a fake, he's a terrible fake!
Whoa! Easy, tigers! You've got the wrong cat! That thief's an impostor. I'm the real Cat Noir!
You know I'm innocent, don't you, Bugaboo?
Love me? ...You're right! She loves me! That's why she'll be able to reveal your true identity!
If you don't believe I'm the real Cat Noir, ask him about our love for each other. Have I ever lied to you, Bugaboo?
Better help the fellow out. His crush just got crushed. [...] That makes two of us.

The Pharaoh

That's crazy! What are the odds that we have the same textbook? Maybe we even go to the same school!
For one, ladies smell about a thousand times better than that cheese. And they're much better-looking.
Hiding behind an innocent bystander? You're weak, Pharaoh!
Why do I have to deal with these freaks while you get to slip calmly 'round back?
Ladybug: Because I'm the only one who can capture his akuma, and because you are the bravest one out of both of us!
Sure!... I know you don't really think that, but I'll pretend you do.

Lady Wifi

If Chloé is Ladybug like Alya said, then Lady Wifi's gonna head straight for her house!
So, what do you do when you're not Ladybug?
You're out of minutes, Lady Wifi!
Stay! I won't tell anyone who you are. Cat's honor.
That's the thing, Plagg. I wasn't thinking. I was following my heart.

The Evillustrator

I got wind that you were being blown away by a hairy situation.
Well, that guy looks pretty sketchy.
[The Evillustrator] sure has a way of illustrating his point.
Oh, this cat's got particle physics in the bag.
Whoo-hoo! I thought I was going to have to save you from that girl's claws. Get it? Claws? Hey, I haven't even introduced myself. I'm Cat Noir.
Gotta go. A superhero's work is never done. Damsels in distress, ladies in waiting... I've got a lot more saving to do. You can thank me later.
Well, well. Look what the cat dragged in!
Ladybug! This cat doesn't have nine lives!
I heard about your adventures with Cat Noir yesterday. Were you scared?


Hi Father, it's me. It's Parent's Career Day at school, remember? I was hoping that you were gonna show up. Call me back.
Exactly! You can't accuse someone without proof! We should go and defend ourselves in a Court of Law!
Something about Paris just makes you wanna dance.
I'd stick around, but then you'd see me without my mask and... you wouldn't be able to resist me.

Dark Cupid

I don't need a poem when I can tell [Ladybug] to her face... I love you.
I swore to myself that I'd tell you as soon as I saw you. Ladybug, I—I—look out!
Ladybug, I—I loathe you! You're nothing Ladybug, and nothing to me! I hate you!
I've often wondered what would happen if I used my Cataclysm on someone.
Whoa, hold up! Someone answered my poem? But I threw it away!


Chloé, seriously?
Here we go again...
Thanks, Rose!
I left Officer Jones' jacket back there! Should probably wear it in all the scenes.
Uh-uh; easier said than done, Ladybug! I tried to cut through the goo, but it's no good. Totally indestructible. So, looks like we're trapped inside the school for now. Just stay put and try to relax, guys.


Wow, Mr. D'Argencourt, I've never seen you on fire like this! That was some attack!
Seriously? How did I not see that coming?
Guys, do you only know heavy metal?
I was managing just fine by myself, you know, but it's always nice to see you.
So did I [become a knight]! What a "knight"mare!

The Mime

My dad's flaking, isn't he? Let me guess; something came up?
Nice ride, but if I were you, I would have at least made it a convertible.
But we're the cat-and-bug team, remember?
[The Mime] sure brings a whole new meaning to "silent but deadly".
A shoe box? Great. There better be some explosive boots in there or something.
Such a shame. I could have been your date in the play tonight, just you and me.

Princess Fragrance

Oh! Are you okay? Nothing broken?
P-U! Could we get a little fresh air in here?
Can we open the windows? This fish smell is even too much for a cat.
♫ Give me your miraculous! ♫

Ladybug & Cat Noir (Origins - Part 1)

I just wanna go to school like everybody else. What's so wrong with that? Please don't tell my father about all this.
It's not dangerous, Father. I'm always stuck in here by myself. Why can't I go out and make friends just like everybody else?
My dad's pranking me, right? Wait, he couldn't be; he has no sense of humor.
But I'm stuck here! I'm not even allowed to go to school! What good is a superhero who's imprisoned in his own house?
I bet you're the partner my kwami told me about. I'm... Cat Noir. Yeah, Cat Noir. And you?
Camembert cheese. Fantastic. All [Plagg] eats is Camembert, which means I'm gonna smell like stinky old cheese.

Stoneheart (Origins - Part 2)

You don't get it Plagg, I've had enough of being shut up at home by my dad. I want to meet people and make friends! Go to a normal school like everyone else!
I've known Chloé ever since I was a little kid. I know she's not perfect, but I can't throw her under the bus. She's like my only friend.
M'Lady, have I ever told you you turn my world upside down?
No. [Roger]'s wrong, because without you, [Chloé]'d no longer be here. And because without us, they won't make it, and we'll prove that to 'em. Trust me on this. Okay?
Wow. Whoever she is beneath that mask, I love that girl.
Hey. I just wanted you to know that I was only trying to take the chewing gum off your seat. I swear. I've never been to school before. I've never had friends. It's all sort of... new to me.
Whatever. [Marinette]'s just a friend. Oh... a friend!


You're cool too, dude; trust me! Or you wouldn't be my best bud!
Sorry about that. How could we make it up to you? Any ideas, Nino? How about we all check out the...zoo today?
But first I wanted to take this opportunity to... tell you that I love you, Marinette.
Thanks. I've always wanted to smell like... Ocean Summer Breeze?
Well, I know of some other animals that'll soon be extinct — the cat and the ladybug!

Simon Says

We've got to get to my house, now! My father's in danger!
I couldn't keep him away. He's coming. He's got company. [...] Close off all exits! They're coming from every direction! Do as I say! Engage the self-defense system; we need total lockdown!
You're in danger, like everyone else. So stop pretending you're above us all and do what I tell you to!
Can I put on my clothes first?
My mother on her 17th birthday. She was pretty, huh? She's got your eyes.
Prefer Ladybug? Can't say I blame you.
Is [the ring] the only thing you've never noticed about me?


I think we've been like... digitized or something.
I'm gonna see if there's a way out down there. Don't go anywhere; could be dangerous.
It's my first live concert, ever! It's amazing!

Guitar Villain

Hey, Jagged! C'mon! Why don't you try to rock my world?
Huh, wow! The bug mastered the dragon!
I... wanted to ask if... I could get [my album cover]... autographed?

Kung Food

Alya called me. She said you needed someone who speaks Chinese? Well, here I am! Translator at your service.
Cheng Shifu isn't just a chef, Marinette — he's an artist! He told me he was gonna put flowers in his Celestial Soup. He said he improvises on fateful things that come his way. The flowers he mentioned must be the ones you gave him!
Japanese people make sushi, Chloé. Cheng Shifu is Chinese!
Mmm. It might taste good, but it's totally indestructible. Looks like we're trapped inside.
Seafood? This scampi happening. Let's see if you can carry a tuna!
I think the electricity between us short-circuited the elevator.
Nice work, M'Lady. Shall we go and find the head chef?


We? That was practically all you. You're amazing, Marinette. I guess you wouldn't even need me. I'm so lame compared to you.
I heard Miss Video Game Champion really took down the final boss.
Go on, Marinette. You're a hundred times better than me. You belong on the team. Win the tournament for the school. I know you can do it.


It's no big deal, Chloé! As long as we're all in the same photo, right?
This isn't gym class, you know, Chlo'.
Cataclysm! Huh? What? My Miraculous! It's gone!
My powers might be gone, but I can't just stand by and do nothing! [...] Who invented these [platform shoes]?
If you want your faces back, then listen up. Have you ever heard of safety in numbers?
These shoes are killer on the feet, M'Lady.
'Course it is [me]. Can't you tell by my swagger? Am I still the cat's meow or what?

The Puppeteer

Excuse me, sir, there's a... uh... cat loose on the train!
Breaking and entering are grounds for a serious time-out.
Don't let her make me a puppet! You know I like to be in command!
Good. And Ladybug, FYI, you can pull my heartstrings any day!


It's not gonna be easy to find someone we can't see.
Why didn't you listen to Chloé? She was only trying to help.
Never! Not with a fake like you! Ladybug and I are a team.
Sorry, but I don't take any orders from a mere copycat.
'Course. We're a team, aren't we?


[My father] hides stuff behind the painting of Mom?
Hawk Moth? What's this monster doing in a book about superheroes?
Looks like we have a new partner.
Excuse me, but it wasn't really quite a date, per se. I mean— what I meant was it could've become one, right? No need to get bent out of shape!
Ugh, that stubbornness, it's so... so... irresistible!
If [my father] finds out [his book]'s missing, I'll have something worse than Hawk Moth to deal with.

Season 2

The Collector

I hardly know anything about you, Father.
I can't wait to know more, M'Lady-tective.
I'm always ready for you, M'Lady!

Prime Queen

Wanna hear a secret? I love Chouquettes.
Don't listen to her. Bugaboo's just a spot jealous.
Why don't we get some ice cream? I know the purr-fect place!
I know how we can prove our feelings. Pucker up!

The Dark Owl

Don't try this at home. Okay, kids?
Oh, darn! We're done!
By the way, say "hi" to Hawk Moth for us. Hope he enjoys his new toys!
See that? Reading comic books can actually save lives!
Feline going to the movies?


Aw, don't be such a baby, Plagg!
Let's go splish-splash, mega-baby.
I have a great voice, you know? I'll meow you a serenade one of these days.
I loved playing with cars when I was a kid, too.
I hear your ice cream's the best in Paris, André.


It's not cool to play with people's feelings.
I get it, Ladybug. Your friendship means everything to me. You can keep the rose; it goes with your costume.
Perhaps Ladybug'll love me someday. I mean, like I love her. I have to believe. In the meantime, her friendship is the best gift of all.


Hey! Don't eat that ice cream or things'll get catastrophic!
Well, sneaky fox, think you'll be as sneaky as a cat?
Welcome to our team! If you need any cool superhero tips, you know where to come!
I have a feeling working with you is gonna be a lot of fun!
Good job! You're a fast learner.
Don't worry. Sometimes it's even more absurd than this!
Looking forward to fighting villains with you again, Rena Rouge!


You live near here. Can I hide out at your place?
I'm so sorry I got you in this crazy mess, Marinette. Plus, now everyone thinks you're my girlfriend!
How can anything bad happen...with my Marinette lucky charm?
This is the first time I've ever come to the movies with a friend.
Stop! I'm the one you wanted. Leave them alone!
I can't [transform], Plagg! Not in the open like this! I'm sure Ladybug has a plan. I trust her!
I just knew I could count on you, M'Lad— um, Ladybug.
Don't worry, "Adrien", I won't let [Gorizilla] touch a hair on your head!
This is Cat Noir Express Deliveries. Did you order a giant beast, M'Lady?
If you can manage to stop running after me screaming, I'm sure we can be good friends!


Sorry to disappoint, but I'm the only one to stick to M'Lady!
I already know who you are[, Ladybug. ...] You're the girl of my dreams.
Are you lying[, Marinette]?
I'm glad to have you as one of my fans[, Marinette].


You’re a public health hazard!
You’re right M’Lady. Our powers may be all screwed up, but we still make a great team.


A Christmas Special

Check it out, Nathalie. Do you think [my father]'ll like all the decorations?
[My father]'s still only thinking of himself. I just want this terrible day to be over and done with. I hate Christmas!
I'm a sad, lonely kitty; won't anyone take pity?
It's my first Christmas without my mom, sir.
Put this [hat] on. The friend who gave it to me would want you to have it.
I've always dreamed of being your Santa Claus, M'Lady.
Merry Christmas, Mom.

Miraculous Secrets

Ladybug as seen by Adrien

I have to write something more... smart? But I can't make jokes, [Ladybug] doesn't like that, which makes no sense because my puns are on point. I find them to be extremely funny!
Nobody can know who I really am, not even the one I love.
Maybe it's best that I tell [Ladybug] nothing, then, for now, at least. But I'll find something, and someday, I'll tell her the truth.

Adrien's Double Life

I sometimes model for [my father], posing for his advertising campaigns. I don't hate it, but I won't make a career out of it. Actually, I mostly do it to make my father happy. Ever since Mom disappeared, he hasn't been the same. So, I try to be there for him.

Miraculous Adventures

Issue 2

You've chosen the Cat Noir express, which comes with a free delivery of paw blows on supervillains' behinds. Thank you for your trust!
Oh no! You've ruined that delicious ice cream! Honestly, who would want to taste a chocolate and sardine cone?!
Couldn't you have conjured up a rubber dinghy, at the very least?
