- “Daddy! What did we say? No icing anyone at my wedding!”
- ―Fru Fru to Mr. Big
Icing is a punishment that is issued by Mr. Big. It is done by dunking the icees into freezing Arctic water via a trap door under the floor of Mr. Big's home in Zootopia. It is assumed to be a method of execution.
Role in the Film
Near the middle of the film, Kevin and Raymond take Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde to Mr. Big's home after they are found inside a limo. Mr. Big, who had had some past negative encounters with Nick and after Judy had accused him of being behind Mr. Otterton's disappearance, proceeds to ice him and Judy, but his daughter, Fru Fru, enters just in time. After scolding Mr. Big, Fru Fru recognizes Judy as the bunny who saved her from a giant donut the day before.
Out of gratitude, Mr. Big spares Judy and Nick and invites them to Fru Fru's wedding.
Near the end of the film, Judy and Nick attempt to interrogate Duke Weaselton about the Night howlers, but Duke refuses to speak, so they take him to Mr. Big. The shrew threatens Duke with being iced, compelling the weasel to give Judy and Nick the information they need.
- Mr. Big's voice actor, Maurice LaMarche, does not believe that Mr. Big kills animals when he "ices" them, and instead "just dunks them until they're really sorry".
