"I know exactly what that feels like! I had to watch her die!"
"...Over the millions and millions of years of my existence, I have made many mistakes Peter. But you are not one of them. Please give me the chance to be the father that she would have wanted me to be. There is so much that I need to teach you about this planet and the light within. They are part of you Peter."
"What do you mean?"
"Give me your hands son. Here, hold them like that. Now, close your eyes and concentrate. Think of the brain in the centre of this planet. YES! YES!"

"That's disgusting.
It was beautiful. You earthers have hang-ups."
"Yes, Drax, I got a penis."
"And it's not half bad.
