Along the way, he meets three orphaned sisters to help him with his plan.  Gru adopts them, and uses them as his unknowing accomplices.  He unintentionally finds himself loving them like daughters.  When his sidekick, Dr Nefario returns them to the orphanage, Gru feels awful, even after he steals the shrink ray and the moon.
