Quill's mother (letter to Quill): Peter, I know these last few months have been hard for you. But I'm going to a better place. And I will be okay. And I will always be with you. You are the light of my life. My precious son. My little Star-Lord. Love, Mom.
Rhomann Dey: Your criminal records have also been expunged. However, I have to warn you against breaking any laws in the future.
Rocket: Question. What if I see something that I want to take, and it belongs to someone else?
Rhomann Dey: You will be arrested.
Rocket: But what if I want it more than the person who has it?
Rhomann Dey: It's still illegal.
Rocket: That doesn't follow. No, I want it more, sir. Do you understand? What are you laughing at? Why? I can't have a discussion with this gentleman?
Drax: What if someone does something irksome and I decide to remove his spine?
Rhomann Dey: That's... That's actually murder. It's one of the worst crimes of all. So... also illegal.
(Groot makes a barrier from himself around the Guardians)
Rocket: No, Groot! You can't. You'll die. Why are you doing this? Why?
Groot: We are Groot.
Drax: I want you all to know that I am grateful for your acceptance after my blunders. It is pleasing to once again have... friends. You, Quill, are my friend.
Peter Quill: Thanks.
Drax: This dumb tree, he is my friend.
Drax: And this green whore, she, too...
Gamora: Oh, you must stop!
Drax: I can barely see.
(Groot sends light spores in the air)
Drax: When did you learn to do that?
Peter Quill: Pretty sure the answer is "I am Groot."
Rhomann Dey: He says that he's an "a-hole." But he's not, and I'm quoting him, here, "100% a dick."
Nova Prime: Do you believe him?
Rhomann Dey: I don't know that I believe anyone is 100% a dick, ma'am.
Rocket: There's one more thing we need to complete the plan. That guy's eye.
Peter Quill: No! No, we don't. No, we don't need that guy's eye.
Rocket: No, seriously, I need it! It's important to me.
Rocket: Quill, stopping Ronan, it's impossible. You're asking us to die.
Peter Quill: Yeah, I guess I am.
Gamora: Quill. I have lived most my life surrounded by my enemies. I will be grateful to die among my friends.
Drax: You are an honorable man, Quill. I will fight beside you. And in the end, I will see my wife and daughter again.
Groot: I am Groot.
Rocket: Oh, what the hell. I don't got that long a lifespan, anyway.
Peter Quill: I look around at us. You know what I see? Losers. I mean, like, folks who have lost stuff. And we have. Man, we have. All of us. Our homes, our families, normal lives. And, usually, life takes more than it gives. But not today. Today, it's given us something. It has given us a chance.
Drax: To do what?
Peter Quill: To give a shit. For once. Not run away.
