Sonic: [voice over] I’m Sonic. A little ball of super energy, in an extremely handsome package. On my planet, people were always after my powers. So I came to yours. It gets a little lonely, but that’s okay. I am living my best life on earth.
Sonic: [voice over] And in order to save my planet, I have to come to yours.
[as he lands on earth]
Sonic: Where am I? What year is it? Is The Rock president?
Sonic: [voice over] This is my power, and I’m using it to protect my friends.
Sonic: I got to go fast.
Commander Walters: Twenty minutes ago, an energy surge knocked out power across the entire Pacific Northwest. This needs someone who can figure exactly what we’re dealing with.
Military Personnel: You’re not suggesting who I think you’re suggesting?
Commander Walters: We have no choice.
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: Are you in charge here?
Major Bennington: Yes, I am.
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: No!
Major Bennington: My…
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: Wrong!
Major Bennington: Name…
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: I’m in charge! Allow me to clarify. In a sequentially ranked hierarchy, based on level of critical importance, the disparity between us is too vast to quantify. Agent Stone.
Agent Stone: The doctor thinks you’re basic.
Major Bennington: Listen, pal, I don’t know if you realize…
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: I’m sorry, major, what was your name?
Major Bennington: Bennin…
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: Nobody cares!
[after Tom catches Sonic hiding inside his garage]
Sonic: Uh, meow?
Tom Wachowski: Ahh!!!
[Tom shoots at Sonic with a tranq gun]
Sonic: Ah, come on…
[Sonic passes out]
Tom Wachowski: [to Sonic] Why are you hiding out in my garage?
Tom Wachowski: Okay, pal, I want answers.
Sonic: Basically, it looks like I’m going to have to take your planet.
Sonic: They’re coming for me! If they steal my power, it could conquer the universe. You have to help me!
Tom Wachowski: No, I don’t.
Sonic: Please. It’s life or death. The entire military is after me!
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: Good morning, my rural chum.
Tom Wachowski: Mr…?
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: Dr. Ivo Robotnik.
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: [to Tom] I’m going to give you five seconds to tell me where it is.
[comes out of his hiding place]
Sonic: Wait! Don’t hurt him!
[Robotnik screams in terror and Tom punches him]
Sonic: Is that all you got?!
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: No, but thank you for asking.
[as they go on the run]
Sonic: Road trip! Whoop-whoop!
Tom Wachowski: This can’t be happening to me.
Sonic: Oh, my God. Stop the car right now!
Tom Wachowski: What? What?!
[reads from the billboard they are passing]
Sonic: “The World’s Largest Rubberband Ball!” We got to see it!
Tom Wachowski: No, this is not some fun family road trip.
[Tom look at the passenger seat, Sonic has already left and comes back with some rubber balls]
Sonic: Ah, you’re right. It was lame. Gift shop was cool though.
[screams as his assistant shows up behind him whilst he was dancing]
Agent Stone: I just thought you might like a latte with steamed Austrian goat milk.
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: Of course I want a latte. I love the way you make them!
[to Stone; referring to Sonic]
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: Whatever this creature is, our job is to secure it, neutralize it, see what makes it tick.
[referring to Sonic]
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: Whatever this creature is, I’m going to uncover the source of its power.
Sonic: Look at this. I took nine million steps today.
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: How are you not dead?
Sonic: I have no idea!
[Sonic is hiding in his bag]
Tom Wachowski: Stay in there and be quiet.
[as Tom is waiting for the elevator]
Sonic: How much longer? I can’t breathe in here.
Business Woman: Do you have your child in that bag?
Tom Wachowski: No. I mean, yes, it’s a child, but it’s not mine.
Business Man: It’s not your child?
[everyone waiting for the elevator takes a step back from Tom]
Sonic: Smells like body spray and an old ham sandwich.
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: Why would you throw your life away for this silly little alien?
Tom Wachowski: He’s my friend.
Sonic: So, you’re supposed to be Tom’s best friend that he won’t shut up about.
[we see he’s looking at Tom’s dog]
Sonic: Well, I don’t see the appeal.
[the dog starts licking Sonic’s face]
Sonic: That is very gross.
