Gamora: I'm a warrior and an assassin. I do not dance.
Peter Quill: Really? On my planet, there's 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... It's the greatest thing there is.
Gamora: Who put the sticks up their butts?
Peter Quill: What? No, that's just a...
Gamora: That is cruel.
Rocket: I have a plan! I have a plan!
Drax: Cease your yammering and relieve us from this irksome confinement.
Peter Quill: Yeah, I'll have to agree with the walking thesaurus on that one.

Peter Quill: It's just a metaphor, dude.
Rocket: His people are completely literal. Metaphors are gonna go over his head.
Drax: Nothing goes over my head. My reflexes are too fast. I would catch it.
Gamora: I'm gonna die surrounded by the biggest idiots in the galaxy.
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: Well, he don't know talking good like me and you. So his vocabulistics is limited to "I" and "am" and "Groot." Exclusively in that order.
Peter Quill: I tell you what, that's gonna wear real thin, real fast.
Rhomann Dey: Hey! If it isn't Star-Prince.
Peter Quill: Star-Lord.
Rhomann Dey: Oh, sorry. "Lord." I picked this guy up a while back for petty theft. He's got a code name.
Peter Quill: Come on, man. It's a... It's an outlaw name.
Rhomann Dey: Just relax, pal. It's cool to have a code name. It's not that weird.
