Buzz LightyearEdit

  • To infinity and beyond!

XREdit

  • 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 ZurgEdit

  • 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!

Warp Darkmatter/Agent ZEdit

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

DialogueEdit

Warp Darkmatter: Now, you’re just trying to freak us out.
Buzz Lightyear: No, it’s my worst fear come true.
Warp Darkmatter: Here we go.
Buzz Lightyear: This diabolical plot can only be the work of the sworn enemy of the Galactic Alliance: Evil Emperor Zurg.
Warp Darkmatter: What plot?! You think Zurg is behind every kitten stuck up a tree!
Buzz Lightyear: The fiend. Why can't he leave kitty-cats out of his nefarious schemes?
Warp 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 Lightyear: Not today, Zurg!

Zurg: 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.
Zurg: [Enraged] My mother used to call me that!
Brain Pod #29: You know, he really, really likes that name.
Grub: Yes, he's been saving it for a very evil henchmen.
Agent Z: [Trying to placate Zurg] Agent Z, love it! Especially the whole "Z" thing!
Evil Emperor Zurg: And-and-and you know what? We'll save a fortune on monogramming!

Commander Nebula: Blast! Zurg knows the little guys keep Star Command running! That stinkin' bucket-head. He did this to cripple our operation!
Buzz Lightyear: 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.
Commander Nebula: But why? What's he gonna do with it?
Buzz Lightyear: 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!

[in the briefing room]
Commander Nebula: I don't know what Zurg's plannin' on doin' with the Uni-Mind, but I plan on beatin' him to the punch.
Buzz Lightyear: We're launching a full-scale assault on Planet Z.
X.R.: Whoa! Full-scale? Buzz, listen to your trusty partner when I say, maybe we've overlooked a little thing I like to call negotiation.
Buzz Lightyear: X.R.?
X.R.: Now follow me on this, Buzz. Two words: Time-share. How many of you love it? All right. Monday through Wednesday, admittedly, the galaxy belongs to Zurg. But, Thursday through Saturday, it's ours. We alternate Sundays. What do you think?
Commander Nebula: Sweet mother of Venus, what did you do to him?!
L.G.M #1: We, uh, fixed him.
L.G.M #2: We, uh, think.
Commander Nebula: GET THAT THING OUT OF HERE!
X.R.: What'd I say? Come on. You know the time-share idea is solid, and you're jealous.
Booster: Where are you guys goin' with the robot?
X.R.: Please. Experimental ranger.
L.G.M. #1: Uh, we were looking for you, Booster.
L.G.M. #2: Yeah. We thought you could use some help.
L.G.M. #3: [gives X.R. to Booster] Here. You'll love him.
X.R.: I am lovable.

[the Evil Emperor Zurg's new mind control ray is a success]
Evil Emperor 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?
Evil Emperor 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!

Mira Nova: I had no idea a star cruiser could pull a move like that!
Buzz Lightyear: And neither did Zurg.
Zurg: I'll make a note of it.
Mira 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.
Mira Nova: They're retreating.
Buzz Lightyear: But why?
XR: Obviously, my caustic tongue cut 'em to the quick.
Booster: I'm getting a funny energy reading.
Buzz Lightyear: Mira, check the hull.
[Mira checks the hull, sees a bomb and gasps in shock.]
Mira Nova: [worried] We've got a bomb!
XR and Booster: [alarmed] A BOMB?!
Buzz Lightyear: [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 Lightyear: 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.
Mira Nova: Okay, and you are?
XR: In serious need of some personal space.
Booster: So, Buzz, did Zurg win?
Buzz Lightyear: 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 Lightyear: As long as Zurg thinks I'm dead, he won't be looking for me, and that gives me the advantage.

Buzz Lightyear: You three take the ship, find the planets that Zurg hasn't hit yet, and supervise immediate evacuations.
Mira Nova: What about Zurg?
Buzz Lightyear: He's my problem.
Mira Nova: He's everybody's problem.
Buzz Lightyear: 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 six, subsection delta.
Buzz Lightyear: 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 Lightyear: Because nose rings are for punks, little mister!
Mira 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: Then, who's getting a nose ring? [Gasps] That's why Buzz wants to ditch us.
Buzz Lightyear: I am not getting a nose ring. Nobody's getting a nose ring; It's against the rules!
Mira Nova: Which, apparently, don't apply to you.
Buzz Lightyear: Of course they apply to me. The rules apply to everyone.
Mira Nova: Great. Then you're not facing Zurg alone, and we'll be your backup.
Buzz Lightyear: [about to explode] I want the three of you off this planet now, and that's an order.
XR and Booster: [saluting in panic] Yes, sir!
Buzz Lightyear: Ranger Nova?
Mira Nova: [begrudgingly salutes] Yes, sir.
Buzz Lightyear: Thank you.

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