Buzz Lightyear edit

  • To infinity and beyond!
  • Not today, Zurg!

XR edit

  • You know, the guy's supposed to be some kind of evil genius, and best he can come up with is a ventriloquist act. What's next, evil juggling?

Evil Emperor Zurg edit

  • If you want something turned evil, turn it evil yourself. That's what Nana Zurg always used to say to me, and she was plenty evil.
  • [To Brain Pod #13] You're telling me my plan? I already know my plan, I made up the plan, its MY plan. [Enraged] What I don't know is how close you are to accomplishing my plan!
  • No! My plan! My galaxy! [Zurg's Lackey: Uni-mind wave impact in three seconds!] Curse you, Buzz Lightyear!
  • This is my most diabolical scheme yet! Assuming that the freakshow, known as my staff, CAN DO ONE THING RIGHT!
  • A delightful blend of man and machine, with just a naughty touch of lingonberry! I shall call you... Agent Z! [Agent Z: That's stupid.] MY MOTHER USED TO CALL ME THAT!
  • Your puny Star Command laser is pathetic. Let me show you a real weapon! The Zurgatronic Ion Blaster!
  • I shall destroy your Galactic Alliance. [presses his "Z" emblem and it lights up] But, first, I shall destroy you! Well, not personally. Hornets! Destroy Buzz Lightyear!
  • Prepare to die, Buzz Lightyear!

Warp Darkmatter/Agent Z edit

  • [After revealing his identity as Agent Z to Buzz] My name's DARKmatter; who's surprised here?

Dialogue edit

Darkmatter: Now, you’re just trying to freak us out.
Buzz: No, it’s my worst fear come true.
Warp: Here we go.
Buzz: This diabolical plot can only be the work of the sworn enemy of the Galactic Alliance: Evil Emperor Zurg.
Darkmatter: What plot?! You think Zurg is behind every kitten stuck up a tree!
Buzz: The fiend. Why can't he leave kitty-cats out of his nefarious schemes?
Darkmatter: All I know is, we searched half the Zeta Quadrant to find the missing LGMs, and what did we find?! A lot of nothing! There's something really bad behind me, isn't there?

Zurg: Prepare to die, Buzz Lightyear!
Buzz: Not today, Zurg!

Nebula: Buzz, meet your new partner.
Buzz: Partner?
Mira: Sir, what you did for my people, it inspired me to join.
Buzz: No.
Mira: No?
Nebula: No what?
Buzz: No partner. Too risky.
Nebula: Ohh. Look, son, I know you're still torn up about Warp, but next time you're out there...
Buzz: And Zurg aims for me? What's to keep the princess from ending up like Warp?
Nova: Okay, hello? The princess has a name!
Buzz: Yeah, I'm sorry, princess.. (Facepalms in frustration) Mira. I work alone.
Nova: So you're gonna stop Zurg all by yourself?
Buzz: That's the general plan.
Nova: But regulations clearly state--
Buzz: I know regulations! I wrote half of them! But as long as Zurg is gunning for me, anybody close to me is gonna get caught in the crossfire!
Nebula: Noted! But Buzz, there's one thing you should know!
Buzz [Confused]: What's that?
Buzz: I'm sorry, Commander. But from now on, Buzz Lightyear flies solo.

Nebula: Blast! Zurg knows the little guys keep Star Command running! That stinkin' bucket-head. He did this to cripple our operation!
Buzz: No, commander. If that's all Zurg wanted, he could have destroyed the Uni-Mind. Instead, he had his new lackey, Agent Z, steal it.
Nebula: But why? What's he gonna do with it?
Buzz: I don't know exactly, but I believe that even now, Zurg is hatching his most diabolical scheme yet.
[cut to Planet Z and Zurg]
Evil Emperor Zurg: This is my most diabolical scheme yet! Assuming that the freak-show, known as my staff, can do one thing right!
Grub: Of course, my evil Emperor, and, uh, uh, who better to give you the good news than, uh- Brain Pod 13!
Brain Pod #13: Okay, hi, uh, Mr. Evil Emperor. How are you? You look terrif- very sinister today. We believe that just as the Unimind connected all the L.G.M.s... it could hopefully allow you to reach out... and ensnare every innocent mind in the Galactic Alliance. You know, a mind slave, evil puppet kind of scenario.
Emperor Zurg: [To Brain Pod #13] You're telling me my plan? I already know my plan, I made up the plan, its MY plan. What I don't know is how close you are to accomplishing my plan!
Brain Pod #13: Yeah, kind of an outdoor voice there. Okay, naturally, the first step is to turn the Unimind from good to evil. But, um, we don't have any idea how-
Zurg: Lamebrain! If you want something turned evil... turn it evil yourself. That's what Nana Zurg always used to say to me... and she was plenty evil.
Brain Pod #13: Evil overload!
Zurg: Nana Zurg would be so proud.

[Zurg's new mind control ray is a success]
Zurg: Another planet and it's mine! I'm not the man who knows the man! I am the man!
Brain Pod #29: Uh, about that raise, sir?
Zurg: Please. Once I enslave the universe, I won't need the likes of you. It'll be all Zurg, all the time! 24/7! Zurgie heaven!

Zurg: You see, I used the Uni-Mind to link your fellow rangers to my evil. And that's just the beginning. Soon, the entire Galactic Alliance will be under my control. [laughs evilly]
XR: You know, as a robot, I'm not susceptible to mind control, so, this really isn't an issue for me.
Mira Nova: Yeah, it'll be your issue when they rip you apart, and sell you for scrap!

Nova: I had no idea a star cruiser could pull a move like that!
Buzz: And neither did Zurg.
Zurg: I'll make a note of it.
Nova: We're surrounded!
XR: You know, the guy's supposed to be some kind of evil genius, and the best he can come up with is a ventriloquist act. What's next? Evil juggling?
Zurg: Farewell, Lightyear.
Nova: They're retreating.
Buzz: But why?
XR: Obviously, my caustic tongue cut 'em to the quick.
Booster: I'm getting a funny energy reading.
Buzz: Mira, check the hull.
[Mira checks the hull, sees a bomb and gasps in shock.]
Nova: [worried] We've got a bomb!
XR and Booster: [alarmed] A bomb?!
Buzz: [smirks] Perfect.
Zurg: At last. For too long, Lightyear has hounded me. [Buzz's ship explodes] But no more. [evilly laughs, thinking Buzz is dead]
Buzz: Buzz Lightyear mission log. By launching the Alpha One at the precise moment of detonation, Zurg believes us to be destroyed. I feel I must pause for a moment of silence in honor of my ship.
XR: Oh, please, Buzz, it was just a hunk of metal.
Nova: Okay, and you are?
XR: In serious need of some personal space.
Booster: So, Buzz, did Zurg win?
Buzz: Not a chance, Booster. I've got Zurg right where I want him.
XR: Yeah? Well, wherever he is, I'll bet he's got legroom.
Buzz: As long as Zurg thinks I'm dead, he won't be looking for me, and that gives me the advantage.

Buzz: You three take the ship, find the planets that Zurg hasn't hit yet, and supervise immediate evacuations.
Nova: What about Zurg?
Buzz: He's my problem.
Nova: He's everybody's problem.
Buzz: Mira, there's only one way for me to finish this mission: Alone.
Booster: But Buzz, that's against the rules. In the Star Command Mission Manual, it clearly states that no ranger is to go into action without backup. I think it's section 6, subsection delta.
Buzz: Actually, it's Section 6, Sub-section Gamma.
XR: He's right, big guy, Sub-section Delta's the dress code. Incidentally, why can't we have nose rings?
Buzz: Because nose rings are for punks, little mister!
Nova: Well, if you can take on Zurg alone, I don't see why XR can't get a nose ring.
XR: I was just asking a question, I'm not the one getting a nose ring.
Booster [panicking]: Then, who's getting a nose ring? [Gasps] That's why Buzz wants to ditch us.
Buzz (Angry): I'm not getting a nose ring! Nobody's getting a nose ring!! It's against the rules!
Mira Nova: Which apparently, the rules don't apply to you.
Buzz (Angry): Of course, they apply to me! The rules apply to everyone!
Nova: Great! Then you're not facing Zurg alone, and we'll be your backup.
Lightyear (Angry): [Finally growls incredibly livid and about to explode in savagely of rage] Arrgh! I want the three of you off this planet now, and that's an order!
XR and Booster: [saluting] YES, SIR!!! (They run back to the Alpha-1 While XR and Booster follow orders, Mira still refuses to listen to Buzz and glares at him.)
Lightyear (Angry): (Raises an eyebrow) Ranger Nova?
Nova: [furiously salutes] Yes, sir! [storms off]
Buzz (Angry): Thank you.

[Booster lands on Warp Darkmatter after being ejected from the Alpha 1]
Warp Darkmatter: Aren't you the janitor?
Booster: Yep!
Darkmatter: Oh, this is gonna be great for my rep.
