Yondu is Mary Poppins, Y'all
Guardians 2 is full of great lines, but one stands out above the rest, with Yondu absolutely stealing the show with the most memorable line of the film.
By the last act of the film, Peter and Yondu reconcile in a big way, truly becoming family. Peter, in fact, is proud to call Yondu his true dad as they all work to fight against his evil biological father.
The two descend into the heart of Ego’s living planet, with Yondu holding on to his glowing Yaka Arrow with one arm.
Peter looks over at Yondu’s pose and laughs, saying “You look like Mary Poppins.”
“Is he cool?” asks Yondu, earnestly.
Peter looks up at Yondu, genuine affection and warmth replacing his smirk. “Hell, yeah, he’s cool,” he replies.
And as they near the ground, one arm still holding onto the shaft of his flying arrow as it floats him through the air, Yondu proudly yells the best line of the movie.
“I’m Mary Poppins, y’all!”
The combination of humor and real warmth in this scene is, at once, touching and hilarious in a way that moviegoers won’t forget, showing Peter’s renewed connection to Yondu as his dad in the best way possible.
This is, indeed, the best moment of Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
