Alisha Hawthorne: Who are you talking to?
Buzz Lightyear: No one.
Alisha Hawthorne: You were narrating again.
Buzz Lightyear: I was not. Just doing the mission log.
Alisha Hawthorne: You do know no one ever listens to those.
Buzz Lightyear: I know that! Narrating helps me focus. Stay sharp.
Alisha Hawthorne: Please don’t call it the turnip.
Buzz Lightyear: But the ship looks like a root vegetable.
Alisha Hawthorne: Yes, you made that very clear at the design review.
Buzz Lightyear: Commander Hawthorne, you know how I feel about rookies. It’s the same way I feel about autopilots. “How may I assist you? Is there anything I can do, sir?” They don’t help. They just over complicate things. I’m better off just doing the job myself.
Alisha Hawthorne: Which is why I brought the rookie.
Featheringhamstan: Uh, hello.
Buzz Lightyear: [referring to the rookie, Featheringhamstan] He’s going to have sad eyes. You know I can’t deal with sad eyes.
Buzz Lightyear: Respect the suit. This suit means something. It’s not just protecting your body, it’s protecting the universe. This suit is a promise to the world, that you, and you alone, will do one thing above all. Finish the mission, no matter the cost. You will never quit, whatever the galaxy may throw your way!
Buzz Lightyear: [turns to Hawthorne, who’s playing inspirational music] Will you please turn that off!
Alisha Hawthorne: It’s just too easy.
Buzz Lightyear: You’re mocking me, aren’t you?
Alisha Hawthorne: Yeah, but in a supportive way.
Buzz Lightyear: The ship. It’s sinking!
Alisha Hawthorne: Everyone, back to the turnip!
Buzz Lightyear: Oh, so now it’s the turnip.
Featheringhamstan: Captain Lightyear, do you need my help?
Buzz Lightyear: Negative.
Featheringhamstan: Are you sure?
Buzz Lightyear: I’m Buzz Lightyear! I’m always sure!

Buzz Lightyear: [after they’re marooned] I’m court-martialing myself.
Alisha Hawthorne: No. You’re not.
Buzz Lightyear: Commander Hawthorne, I hereby relieve myself of all Space Ranger duties. This was my fault. And these people deserve better. You can throw me in the brig.
Alisha Hawthorne: Finish the mission, Buzz. That’s what we do. We’re not done until everyone gets home.
Alisha Hawthorne: Ready, Captain Lightyear?
Buzz Lightyear: Ready as I’ll ever be, Commander Hawthorne.
Alisha Hawthorne: To infinity.
Buzz Lightyear: And beyond.
Buzz Lightyear: A year of work for a four minute flight. Isn’t that something?
Airman Díaz: Sure is.
IVAN: Mission failure imminent. Please record your last words.
Buzz Lightyear: Not today, IVAN.
IVAN: If you are satisfied with this recording, speak, or select one.
Buzz Lightyear: How long was I gone?
Airman Díaz: Four years, two months, and three days.
Buzz Lightyear: What?

ERIC: Time dilation is quite simple. As you approached hyper-speed, your time slowed relative to our own. So, during your mission you aged only minutes, while the rest of us have aged years. Simply put, the faster you fly…
Buzz Lightyear: The faster I fly, the further into the future I travel.
Buzz Lightyear: So, everyone is just stuck here because of me.
Alisha Hawthorne: [referring to her fiancée] It’s funny, I never would have met her if we hadn’t been stranded.
Buzz Lightyear: You got engaged to someone you just met?
Alisha Hawthorne: Buzz, I met her three years ago.
Buzz Lightyear: Oh, right. Right.
SOX: Hello, Buzz! I am SOX. Your personal companion robot.
Buzz Lightyear: My what?
SOX: I was issued by Star Command to ease your emotional transition after your time away.
Buzz Lightyear: Oh. Well, that’s very considerate of you, robot feline. But, no thank you.
SOX: I’m afraid it’s protocol.
SOX: Sensors indicate you’ve missed four birthdays. Would you like a frosted snack kit to celebrate?
Buzz Lightyear: Negative. That would compromise my nutritional regimen.

SOX: We can talk about your feelings. I am an excellent listener.
Buzz Lightyear: No. No. Look, I’ve had a very long day? It did not go as planned.
SOX: I can provide sleep sounds if you like. I have several options. Summer night. Ocean paradise. Whale calls?
Buzz Lightyear: No, no. White noise is fine.
SOX: Very well.
Buzz Lightyear: Good night, SOX.
SOX: Good night, Buzz.
[starts making white noise sound]
SOX: My mission is to help you, and I’m not giving up on my mission.
Buzz Lightyear: Yeah? Yeah. You know what, SOX, I’m not giving up on my mission either.
Alisha Hawthorne: You don’t have to do this.
Buzz Lightyear: Commander, this is my mistake. I need to make it right.
Alisha Hawthorne: [as Buzz is watching her message] Hi, Buzz. You’re back here in a year or two, and, well, I won’t. I don’t know when it happened, but I seem to have gone and gotten very old. I always thought we’d get to be Space Rangers again. I miss being out among the stars. All the adventures. But more than any of that, I missed you.
Izzy Hawthorne: I’m going to be a Space Ranger too.
Alisha Hawthorne: [referring to Buzz] Just like him?
Izzy Hawthorne: Just like you.
Commander Burnside: Look at that! The actual Buzz Lightyear in the flesh!
Commander Burnside: Laser shield. It’ll keep all the creeters out. We’ll just tuck right in here and make do with what we’ve got.
Buzz Lightyear: Make do? No. Wait. Wait. But you don’t understand, Commander. I can still do it. I can get us out of here.
Commander Burnside: Man, it’s great you still believe that. But we’re good, Buzz.
SOX: I figured out the fuel problem.
Buzz Lightyear: What?
SOX: It was an interesting combination. Just the slightest variance, but it made all the difference.
Buzz Lightyear: SOX, how did you do this?
SOX: It took me sixty-two years, seven months, and five days.
Buzz Lightyear: Buzz Lightyear mission log. Star date, I have no idea. In possession of stable fuel formula, I plan to reach hyper-speed and this time finally finish the mission.
SOX: Who are you talking to?
Buzz Lightyear: Doesn’t matter.
Buzz Lightyear: [after SOX fires a tranq dart at a guard] Wait a minute, was that for me, in case I got out of line?
SOX: I bought you five minutes.

Buzz Lightyear: SOX, let’s break this hyper-speed barrier and get everyone home.
IVAN: Congratulations, Captain Lightyear. You have achieved hyper-speed.
Buzz Lightyear: We did it. SOX, we did it!
SOX: Congratulations, Buzz. That was utterly terrifying, and I regret having joined you.
SOX: Are we going to crash?
Buzz Lightyear: No! Well, technically, yes.
