Quotes and Lines
Groot: I am Groot.
Korath the Pursuer: Star-Lord!
Peter Quill: Finally!
Gamora: It’s dangerous and illegal work, suitable only for outlaws.
Peter Quill: Well, I come from a planet of outlaws: Billy the Kid, Bonnie and Clyde, John Stamos.
Rocket Raccoon: But Quill, beating Ronan… it can’t be done. You’re asking us to die.
Peter Quill: Yeah… I guess I am.
Gamora: Quill, I have lived most of my life surrounded my enemies. I will be grateful to die among my friends.
Drax the Destroyer: You’re an honorable man, Quill. I will fight beside you. And in the end, I will see my wife and daughter.
Groot: I am Groot.
Rocket Raccoon: Aww, what the hell, I don’t got that long a lifespan anyway… Well now I’m standing. Happy? We’re all standing now. Bunch of jackasses, standing in a circle.
Groot: I am Groot.
Peter Quill: Well that’s just as fascinating as the first 89 times you told me that. What is wrong with Giving Tree here?
Rocket Raccoon: Well he don’t know talkin’ good like me and you, so his vocabulistics is limited to “I” and “am” and “Groot,” exclusively in that order.
Peter Quill: Well I tell you what, that’s gonna wear real thin, real fast, bud.
Denarian Saal: Peter Quill, this is Denarian Saal. For the record, I advised them against trusting you.
Peter Quill: They got my dick message.
Denarian Saal: Prove me wrong!
Drax the Destroyer: Finger on throat means death! … Metaphor.
Peter Quill: …Sort of.
Peter Quill: If we’re gonna work together you might wanna try trusting me a little bit.
Gamora: How much do you trust me?
Peter Quill: I have a plan.
Rocket Raccoon: You’ve got a plan? Okay, first of all, you’re copying me from when I said I had a plan.
Peter Quill: I’m not copying you, I have a plan, that’s not that unique of a thing to say.
Rocket Raccoon: And secondly, I don’t think you even have a plan.
Peter Quill: I have part of a plan.
Drax the Destroyer: What percentage of a plan do you have?
Gamora: You don’t get to ask questions after the nonsense you pulled on Knowhere!
Drax the Destroyer: I just saved Quill!
Peter Quill: We’ve already established that you destroying the ship I’m on is not saving me!
Drax the Destroyer: When did we establish that?
Peter Quill: Like three seconds ago!
Drax the Destroyer: Well I wasn’t listening then, I was thinking of something else…
Rocket Raccoon: She’s right, you don’t get an opinion… What percentage?
Peter Quill: I dunno… Twelve percent?
Rocket Raccoon: Twelve percent?
Peter Quill: That’s a fake laugh.
Rocket Raccoon: It’s real!
Peter Quill: Totally fake!
Rocket Raccoon: That is the most real, authentic, hysterical laugh of my entire life because THAT IS NOT A PLAN!
Gamora: It’s barely a concept.
Peter Quill: You’re taking their side?
Groot: I am Groot.
Rocket Raccoon: So what, “It’s better than eleven percent!” What the hell does that have to do with anything?
Peter Quill: Thank you Groot, thank you. See? Groot’s the only one of you who has a clue.
Gamora: I know who you are, Peter Quill, and I am not some starry-eyed waif here to succumb to your… your pelvic sorcery!
Drax the Destroyer: I just wanted to tell you how grateful I am that you’ve accepted me despite my blunders. It is good to once again be among friends. You, Quill, are my friend.
Peter Quill: Thanks.
Drax the Destroyer: This dumb tree is also my friend.
Drax the Destroyer: And this green whore is also…
Gamora: Oh, you must stop!
Rocket Raccoon: Fine, but I can’t promise when all of this is over I’m not going to kill every last one of you jerks.
Peter Quill: See, this is exactly why none of you have any friends!
Gamora: I am going to die surrounded by the biggest idiots in the galaxy.
Rocket Raccoon: His people are completely literal. Metaphors go over his head.
Drax the Destroyer: *Nothing* goes over my head…! My reflexes are too fast, I would catch it.
Gamora: I’m a warrior, an assassin. I don’t dance.
Peter Quill: Really? Well, on my planet, we have a legend about people like you. It’s called Footloose. And in it, a great hero, named Kevin Bacon, teaches an entire city full of people with sticks up their butts that, dancing, well, is the greatest thing there is.
Gamora: …Who put the sticks up their butts?
Rocket Raccoon: No, Groot! You’ll die! Why are you doing this? Why?
Groot: *We* are Groot.
Rocket Raccoon: That’s for if things get really hardcore. Or if you wanna blow up moons.
Gamora: No one’s blowing up moons.
Rocket Raccoon: You just wanna suck the joy out of everything.
Peter Quill: What should we do next: Something good, something bad? Bit of both?
Gamora: We’ll follow your lead, Star-Lord.
Peter Quill: A bit of both!
Gamora: I have lived most of my life surrounded by my enemies. I would be grateful to die surrounded by my friends.
