Ayesha: I tried to warn you, High Evolutionary. These Guardians are more powerful than you think.
The High Evolutionary: Or perhaps you simply overestimate your own value, High Priestess. No doubt a flaw of some type in my own design. I created you lot as merely an aesthetic experiment. Beautiful numbskulls. But your egos have run wild.
The High Evolutionary: And this one was meant to be the Warlock, the apogee of their people.
Ayesha: You removed Adam from his cocoon early, my liege. He’s still a child.
The High Evolutionary: No, there’s something wrong with him even outside all that.
Adam Warlock: Yes, there’s something wrong with me! I was stabbed, you extraordinary phallus!

Peter Quill: I don’t know. Something like that.
Mantis: What’s even the point of being born?
Peter Quill: Exactly!
Mantis: Are you about to die?
Peter Quill: I’m not fifty!
Stakar Ogord: OrgoCorp uniforms. You’re going to have to wear these to move through the Orgo without attracting attention.

The High Evolutionary: A utopia can’t have its denizens murdering one another, can it?
Baby Rocket: It can’ts.
Peter Quill: I know you don’t remember any of it. You were everything to me. And I miss you, so much. And maybe if you open yourself up to it, there’s a possibility.
Gamora: I don’t think so, Quinn.
Peter Quill: Quill.
Gamora: Quill. I don’t think so.
Peter Quill: But what I’m trying to say is…
Mantis: Peter, you know this is an open line, right?
Peter Quill: What?
Mantis: We’re listening to everything you’re saying.
Drax: And it is painful.
Peter Quill: And you’re just telling me now?!
Nebula: We were hoping it would stop on its own.

Nebula: Blue is the open line for everyone.
Mantis: Orange is for blue.
Peter Quill: What?!
Mantis: Black is for orange. Yellow is for green. Green is for red. And red is for yellow.
Drax: No. Yellow is for yellow. Green is for red. Red is for green.
Mantis: I don’t think so.
Drax: Try it then.
Mantis: [pushes the button and yells, affecting Peter] Hello! You were right.
Peter Quill: How the hell am I supposed to know all of that?
Drax: Seems intuitive.
Master Karja: I mean, you want to talk about a sweet ride? The acceleration will crush your spine. It’s got that brand-new fusalix core. You know what I’m talking about?
The Boss’s Nephew: Oh, yeah.
Master Karja: Really? Because I just made that up.

Nebula: Dammit, Mantis, why don’t you ever think?
Drax: Are we pretending to be angry again? Mantis, you a**hole!
Bletelsnort: What was your name again?
Drax: Drax the Destroyer.
Bletelsnort: Oh. That is such a lovely name.
Peter Quill: Alright. I’ll handle this one.
Peter Quill: Pure Star-Lord charm. I’m excited for you that you get to see this again for the first time.
Peter Quill: Hi, my name’s Patrick Swayze. I’ve been noticing you for quite a while, and the way that you smile to yourself when you think nobody is looking, it makes my every day a bit brighter.
Gamora: [points her weapon at Ura] We need your hand. And it’s your choice whether it’s on your body or not!
Peter Quill: What are you doing?
Gamora: She was never going to fall for that.
Peter Quill: Dude, she was totally into me, man!
Ura: I kind of thought you were a douchebag.
Peter Quill: Old you would have never done this. You had a purpose higher than yourself. A calling to help people.
Gamora: Give me a break.
Peter Quill: That’s why you left Thanos and formed the Guardians.
Gamora: Except, I didn’t form the Guardians. And I barely left Thanos.

Gamora: Whoever it was that you were in love with, it wasn’t me. It sounds more like her.
Peter Quill: Her?
Peter Quill: That’s ridiculous! Don’t even…
Nebula: Do not bring me into this.
Nebula: Don’t look at me like a lost puppy needing a soft place to lie down.
Peter Quill: I didn’t say anything! I just never noticed how black your eyes were.
Nebula: They were replaced by my father as a method of torture.
Peter Quill: He picked a pretty set.
Mantis: Drax, we should make a run for it.
Drax: Or we could fight.

Gamora: I got a plan.
Peter Quill: What is it?
Gamora: Everybody, lower your weapons, or I blow this woman’s brains out!
Peter Quill: That’s the plan?
Gamora: Let’s kill that one that looks like a carrot to show we mean business.
Peter Quill: God! Past Gamora is just mean!
Nebula: She was always like that, and yet, I was the bad guy. We are not killing anyone!
Peter Quill: We paid her to help us get in and get out. You’d think that’d mean, “Oh, I’m going to help you do it in a way that no one knows it’s happening.” But no! What she means is, “I’m going to shoot people. Threaten people’s lives!”
Gamora: Shut up!
Peter Quill: And I know you’re probably asking, why would I trust her? Well, that’s a good question. The answer is, we used to be in love. Yeah. She was my girlfriend, only she doesn’t remember it, because it wasn’t her. Because her dad threw her off a magic cliff and she died. And then I lost my temper and nearly destroyed half the universe. Then she came back, out of the past. And there she is. Everyone else who died in the past stayed dead. Not her. Why? Was it the magic cliff? I don’t know. I’m not some fricking Infinity Stone scientist. Just some dumba** Earth dude who met a girl, fell in love. That girl died. And then came back a total d**k.
Nebula: He left out some important information. But that is the gist of it.
