Our Favorite Quotes:'If you ever feel lost, just look into the eyes of the people that you love. They'll tell you exactly who you are.' - Peter Quill (Thor: Love and Thunder) Click To Tweet
Gorr: I am Gorr, the last of your disciples. We have lost everything, my lord. The land is dry. All life is lost. But our faith in you never wavered, and now we await the promise of the eternal reward. Is this why you celebrate?
Rapu: He thinks there’s an eternal reward. No. No, sorry. There’s no eternal reward for you, dog!
Gorr: But, my lord, your empire has already ended. There’s no one left to worship you.
Rapu: There’ll be more followers to replace you. There always are.
Gorr: We have suffered, and we have starved. My daughter died in your name.
Rapu: And well you should. Suffering for your gods is your only purpose. There’s nothing for you after death. Except death.
Gorr: You are no god. I renounce you.
Rapu: The sword chose you. You are now cursed!
Gorr: Funny. It doesn’t feel like a curse. Feels like a promise. So, this is my vow. All gods will die.
Korg: Come, come, gather round. And listen to the legend of the Space Viking. AKA, the God of Thunder. AKA, Thor Odinson. Raised in the way of the warrior, Thor was taught to help win battles, fighting the good fight for those who can’t fight good. He grew, and he grew, and he grew. He was sensitive, like a smile. And his loving nature did not discriminate. He once loved a swashbuckling Passionista. Another time, he loved a Wolf Woman on a Woman Wolf. But Thor’s one true love was an Earth woman named Jane Fonda. Oh, wait. No. Jane Foster. But sadly, in the battle for love, Thor lost. In fact, he lost a lot of people in those days. His mum. His dad. And that guy. And that guy. And whoever that is. And Heimdall. And his brother. And his brother, again. And again.
Korg: Poor Thor had to watch his planet explode. And then he said, “What have I done?” It seemed that everything and everyone he loved, he lost. And so he hid his heart behind a big, fleshy bod, so it could never be broken again. But just because he was done loving, didn’t mean he was done fighting. He teamed up with the Guardians of the Galaxy and set off on some classic Thor adventures.
Korg: He got in shape. Putting in the hard yards. Turning pains into gains, and never skipping leg day. He went from Dad Bod to God Bod. But beneath his God Bod, there was still a Sad Bod just trying to get out. Because all of the bods that Thor had worn over the years couldn’t hide the pain that he was feeling on the inside. So he gave up his search for love, accepting that he was only good for one thing. Waiting in quiet contemplation for someone to say, “Thor, we need your help to win this battle.”
Rocket: Well, well, look who it is.
Thor: How are we doing, guys?
Drax: Terrible! We’re all about to die.
Rocket: You said this planet would be a relaxing holiday.
Thor: I said it was going to be like a relaxing holiday. But look at that resplendent skyscape. Three suns of Saturn. What could be more relaxing than that?
Rocket: An actual holiday!

Thor: King Yakan, tell them what happened here today. Tell of the time that Thor, and his ragtag, motley crew of misfit desperadoes, turned the tide of the battle, and etched their names in history. For the odds may be against us, but I’ll tell you this for free.
Peter Quill: Here it comes.
Thor: This ends here and now!
Thor: [as the temple is suddenly collapses behind him] Well done, everybody. We can collectively take credit for that because we worked as a team. We used our hearts and our minds to defeat the enemy with minimal loss or damage. What a classic Thor adventure!
Jane Foster: You ever see Event Horizon?
Chemo Ward Patient: No.
Jane Foster: Interstellar?
Chemo Ward Patient: No.
Jane Foster: That movie explains everything really clearly. Alright. The Einstein-Rosen Bridge folds space, so that point A and point B coexist in space and time. Like that.
Chemo Ward Patient: You just ruined your own book.
Jane Foster: Yeah, but now you understand wormholes. Watch those movies.
Jane Foster: [referring to her cancer] It’s not that serious.
Darcy Lewis: Jane, it’s Stage Four.
Jane Foster: Out of like how many stages?
Darcy Lewis: Four.
Jane Foster: That we know about.
'The goats are going to be fine. If not, we can just use them for meat! Meeting people. They're a great conversation starter.' - Thor (Thor: Love and Thunder) Click To Tweet
Darcy Lewis: You’re not getting what the universe is actually trying to tell you, so let me translate. Slow down. You need your energy to fight this thing.
Jane Foster: I’ll fight it my way, okay?
Darcy Lewis: Well, FYI, “my way” does not have to equal “alone in a lab”.
Darcy Lewis: Maybe it’s time to play the Space Viking card.
Jane Foster: It’s not a card.
Darcy Lewis: Yes, it is.
Jane Foster: There’s no card.
Darcy Lewis: There’s a card. It’s tall, it’s blond, and it’s gorgeous.
Jane Foster: It’s a handsome card.
King Valkyrie: Smell like a king, because you’re worthy. Old Spice.
King Yakan: In return for your service, please accept these gifts. As is tradition, the protectors of our world are bestowed with great beasts.
Korg: Giant goats!
'I found love. And yeah, it got taken from me, and god, that hurts. But that s**tty feeling is better than feeling empty. My hope for you is that one day, you will find something to make you feel this s**tty.' - Peter Quill Click To Tweet
King Yakan: Don’t forget the goats. Which you accepted, and now must take with you. No backsies.
Thor: Aw. They are beautiful.
Korg: Yes, they are beautiful. They also scream quite a lot.
Thor: Goats didn’t eat the remote. Don’t be ridiculous.
Rocket: Well, I ain’t digging through their crap.
Drax: I love them! They should live with us forever!
Thor: The goats are going to be fine. If not, we can just use them for meat! Meeting people. They’re a great conversation starter.
Peter Quill: [to Thor] After thousands of years of living, you don’t seem to know who the hell you are. I’ve been lost before. But then I found meaning, I found love. And yeah, it got taken from me, and god, that hurts. But that s**tty feeling is better than feeling empty. My hope for you is that one day, you will find something to make you feel this s**tty.

Thor: I have loved before. It didn’t work out. They either die a grismal death, or they dump you with a handwritten letter. I don’t know which is worse, but it’s why I keep everyone at arm’s length.
Thor: To ease the pain, why don’t you take this ship here as a parting farewell gift?
Peter Quill: Oh, you’re giving me my ship?
Thor: Yes, she’s yours. May you make as many memories with her as I have. She’s a temperamental old lass. Will serve you well in a tight pickle.
Thor: Goodbye, old friend. A human handshake, to the Asgardian shake. Into the snake that you cannot trust.
Peter Quill: You’re really dragging this out.
Thor: And finish with the classic Asgardian high one.
[the touch their index fingers together]
Peter Quill: Remember what I told you. If you ever feel lost, just look into the eyes of the people that you love. They’ll tell you exactly who you are.
Peter Quill: [as Thor tries to look into his eyes] Alright. Bye.
Thor: For what it’s worth, let’s cling to the good memories. We Asgardians say, “May you travel with the speed of Odin’s ravens. I’ll see you in Valhalla where we shall drink mead and…” They’re gone.
Korg: Alone again. Just me and you.
Sif: I want to die a warrior’s death. On the battlefield. In battle. And then I can claim my place in Valhalla.
Thor: Oh, I hate to break it to you, but for a warrior to get into Valhalla, you have to die in the battle. You survived.
Sif: Oh, s**t.
Thor: Maybe your arm is in Valhalla.
Thor: Mjolnir! It’s me, Thor. Have you seen my hammer? Mjolnir, here, boy. Mjolnir? Mjolnir.
Thor: [just as he’s about to grab it, it flies into Jane’s hand] You’re back!
'None of us know how long we have. We don't know what tomorrow holds. And Mjolnir, Mjolnir chose you. And it chose you because you're worthy. And that's something.' - Thor (Thor: Love and Thunder) Click To Tweet
Thor: Enough tomfoolery. Why don’t you take off that mask and reveal yourself? Come on.
Jane Foster: [reveals her face] Hey.
Korg: Let me tell you the legend of Thor and Jane. He was a God of Thunder, and she, a woman of science. And although they were from different worlds, somehow, it just made sense. And together they embarked on a journey of love. Thor taught Jane the way of the warrior. And Jane taught Thor the way of the people. And as time passed, their love grew deeper and deeper. And love that deep has a way of becoming magical.
Korg: Thor set his sights toward a future and all it might hold. But the more he pondered a life with Jane, the more he feared losing that life. And although Jane didn’t want to admit it, she was scared of loss as well. And so, they built walls between them. Thor got busy saving humanity. And Jane got busy doing the same. Real busy. And eventually, the space between them grew and grew until it became too wide to bear. Something had to give. And then, one night, it did give. Jane wrote a note. And Thor read that note. And their legend suddenly became myth. Or so they thought.
Thor: [as Gorr points the sword at his neck] Hey. Is that the Necrosword? That’s cool. I’ve only ever read about it in stories.
Gorr: Then you know this is going to hurt.
Thor: Pain. What is pain but a construct invented by the weak? Okay. That’s very sharp!

Jane Foster: Quite a reunion, huh?
Thor: You’re telling me.
Jane Foster: What’s it been? Like, three, four years?
Thor: Eight years, seven months, and six days.
Thor: [as Jane walks away] I suppose we both left and both got left. Now you’re leaving again.
Korg: So, that’s the ex-girlfriend, is it?
Thor: The old ex-girlfriend.
Korg: Jodie Foster.
Thor: Jane foster.
Korg: The one that got away.
Thor: The one that got away.
Korg: That means escaped.
Thor: Yeah. Yeah.
