Guardians of the Galaxy

Spoken by Peter Quill

"Oh, I'm sorry. I don't know how this machine works."
"Hey. Take those headphones off, right now!"
―Star-Lord to the Mean Guard[src]
"I'm pretty sure the answer is "I am Groot.""
"We promised him he could stay by your side until he kills your boss. I always keep my promises, when they're to muscle-bound whack-jobs who will kill me if I don't."
"I come from Earth, a planet of outlaws: Billie the Kid, Bonnie and Clyde, John Stamos."
"We've already established that you destroying the ship that I'm on is not saving me."
―Star-Lord to Rocket Raccoon[src]
"I look around, do you know what I see? Losers! I mean like folks who have lost stuff. Their homes. Families. And we're facing a threat that could destroy us all."
―Star-Lord to the Guardians of the Galaxy[src]
"You said it yourself, bitch! We're the Guardians of the Galaxy!"
―Star-Lord to Ronan the Accuser[src]

Spoken about Peter Quill

"Peter Jason Quill, from Terra. Raised from youth by a band of mercenaries called the Ravagers, led by Yondu Udonta."
Rhomann Dey[src]


"Peter? What happened?"
"Hey, uh...uh. I.."
"Bereet! Look, I'm gonna be totally honest with you. I forgot you were here."
Bereet and Star-Lord[src]
"Fool, you should've learned!"
"I don't learn. It's one of my issues."
Gamora and Star-Lord[src]
"Hey, if it isn't Star-Prince."
"Oh right sorry, Lord. I picked this guy up a while back for petty theft, he's got a code-name."
Rhomann Dey and Star-Lord[src]
"Oh hold up, what is a raccoon?"
"What is a raccoon? It's what you are, stupid!"
Rocket Raccoon and Star-Lord[src]
"Why would you want to save the galaxy?"
"'Cause I'm one of the idiots that lives in it!"
Rocket Raccoon and Star-Lord[src]


"Peter Jason Quill. He's also known as Star-Lord."
"Who calls him that?"
"Himself, mostly. He's wanted on charges of minor assault, public intoxication and fraud."
Rhomann Dey and Garthan Saal[src]
"Well, here we are: a thief, two thugs, an assassin, and a maniac, but we're not going to stand by as evil wipes out the galaxy. I guess we're stuck together, partners."
―Star-Lord to the Guardians of the Galaxy[src]

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Spoken by Peter Quill

"Show time, A-holes!"
"Sometimes the thing you're searching for your whole life is right there by your side all along."


"There are two types of beings in the universe. Those who dance, and those who do not."
"I get it, yes. I'm a dancer, Gamora is not."
"You just need to find a woman who is pathetic, like you."
"Thanks, buddy."
Drax the Destroyer and Star-Lord[src]
"Is that a rifle?"
"You don't know what a rifle looks like?"
"It's just... swords were your thing and guns were mine, but... I guess we're both doing guns now. I just didn't know that."
―Star-Lord and Gamora[src]
"Does anyone got any tape out there? I wanna put some tape over the death button."
"Nobody has any tape!"
"Not a single person has tape?!
"You have an Atomic Bomb in your bag. If anyone's gonna have tape, it's you!"
"I have to do everything!"
Rocket Raccoon and Star-Lord[src]
"After all these years, I've found you."
"And who the hell are you?"
"I'm your dad, Peter."
Ego and Peter Quill[src]
"Show time, a-holes! it will be here any minute."
"And it will be its last."
"I thought your thing was a sword?"
"We've been hired to stop an inter-dimensional beast from feeding on those batteries and I'm going to stop it with a sword?"
"It's just... swords were your thing and guns were mine, but... I guess we're both doing guns now. I just didn't know that."
"Drax, why aren't you wearing one of Rocket's Aero-Rigs?"
"It hurts."
"I have sensitive nipples."
"Wa-ha-ha-ha! My nipples hurt! Oh, goodness me!"
"What about him, what's he doing?"
"I'm finishing this so we can listen to tunes while we work."
"How is that important?"
"Blame Quill, he's the one who loves music so much!"
"No, I actually agree with Drax on this, that's hardly important right now."
"Oh, ok, sure Quill"
"No, seriously, I side with Drax."
"I understand that, your being very serious right now."
"I can clearly see you winking!"
"Dam, I'm using my left eye?"
"I am Groot."
"They were not looking at you funny. Oh, well that's intense."
"Groot, get out of the way your going to get hurt! Oh, hi!"
"No, no! Spit it out! Come on! That's disgusting!"
"The beast's hide is too thick to be pierced from the outside! I must cut through it from the inside."
"What? No, Drax! Drax!"
"What's he doing?!"
"He said that the skin is to thick to be pierced on the outside so..."
"That doesn't make any sense!"
"I tried telling him that!"
"Skin has the same level of thickness on the inside as it is on the outside!"
"I realize that!"
"There's a cut on its neck! Rocket, get it to look up!".
"Alright, you giant sea monkey, up here! Whoa, watch it Quill!"
"Yes! I have single-handily vanquished the beast! What?"
Guardians of the Galaxy[src]
"I created what I imagined biological life to be like. Down to the most minute detail. "
"Did you make a penis?"
"What is wrong with you?"
"If he's a planet, how could he make a baby with your mother? He would smush her."
"I don't need to hear how my parents..."
"Why? My father would tell the story of impregnating my mother every winter solstice."
"That's disgusting."
"It was beautiful. You earthers have hang-ups."
"Yes, Drax, I got a penis."
"Thank you."
"And it's not half bad."
―Ego, Drax the Destroyer, Star-Lord and Gamora[src]
"Death will remain a stranger to both of us, as long as the light burns within the planet."
"I'm immortal?"
"Yes. As long as the light exists."
"Like, I could use the light to build cool things, like how you made this whole planet?"
"Well, it might take a few million years of practice before you get really good at it, but yes."
"Well, get ready for a 800-foot statue of Pac-Man with Skeletor and Heather Locklear..."
"Whatever you want."
"I'm gonna make some weird shit."
Ego and Star-Lord[src]
"What's that?"
"It's a Zune; everybody on Earth listens to it nowadays. It has over three hundred songs on it."
"Three hundred? Here, Rocket grabbed the pieces and reassembled it. I think Yondu would want you to have it."
"Thanks Captain."
Star-Lord and Kraglin[src]
"You people have issues."
"Well of course I have issues, that's my freaking father!"
Rocket Raccoon and Star-Lord[src]
"You put your turd in my bed, I shave you!"
"It won't be my turd. It'll be one of Drax's."
"Haha! Yes! I have famously huge turds!"
"Can we put the bickering on hold until we survive this massive space battle?"
Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Drax the Destroyer and Gamora[src]
"The metal's to thick! For the bomb to work, we'll need to place it on Ego's core. And our fat butts aren't going to fit in those tiny holes!"
"That's a terrible idea."
"Which is the only kind of idea we have left."
"Unbelevable. "Rocket, do this, Rocket do that"."
"What a day."
Rocket Raccoon and Star-Lord[src]
"Hey, your making him nervous!"
"Shut up and give me some tape! Does anyone got any tape out there? I wanna put some tape over the death button."
"I don't have any tape, let me check! Yo Yondu, do you have any tape? Gamora, do you have any tape? Hey, ahh, never mind! Drax, do you have any tape? Yeah, Scotch Tape would work! Then why would you ask me if scotch tape would work if you didn't have any? Nobody has any tape!"
"Not a single person has tape?!"
"Did you ask Nebula?"
"Are you sure?"
"Well I asked Yondu and she was sitting right next to him!"
"I knew you were lying! You have priceless batteries and an Atomic Bomb in your bag. If anyone's gonna have tape, it's you!"
"That's exactly the point! I have to do everything!"
"You are wasting a lot of time here!"
"We're all gonna die..."
Rocket Raccoon, Groot and Star-Lord[src]
"You said you loved my mother."
"And that I did. My river lily who knew all the words to every song that came over the radio. I returned to Earth to see her three times. And I knew if I returned a fourth, well, I'd... I'd never leave. The Expansion... the reason for my very existence would be over. So, I did what I had to do. But... it broke my heart to put that tumour in her head."
"Now, now, all right, I know that sounds bad... Who... in the hell... do you think you are?"
"You killed my mother!"
"I tried so hard to find the form... that best suited you... and this is the thanks I get? You really need to grow up. I wanted to do this together... but I suppose you'll have to learn by spending the next thousand years as a battery!"
Star-Lord and Ego[src]
