The following is a list of quotes from the fifth season of Steven Universe.

Stuck Together edit

Aquamarine: Say, Rose, how do I look?
Steven: Awful, small and mean!

Topaz: What was I thinking?
Aquamarine: That's the problem with you fusions. Sooner or later, you will become sentimental. [the ship rumbles, coming to a stop and a notification pops up] We're here. Look, just… unfuse, and we'll never speak of this again.

The Trial edit

Steven: [speaking to himself] I know my mom did something really bad. Whatever Homeworld has in store for me…I'm ready!

Prosecuting Zircon: Defending a rebel? Isn't that… treason? [chuckles]
Defense Zircon: I was assigned to this!
[Blue and Yellow Pearl warp in]
Yellow Pearl: All rise for the luminous Yellow Diamond! [poses]
Blue Pearl: And the lustrous Blue Diamond. [bows]
[Blue and Yellow Diamond warp in behind them and stare down at Steven]
Blue Diamond: [looking around] Where is the accused?
Yellow Diamond: [looks down at Steven] Is that Rose Quartz? Look at this hideous she's taken. Forget the trial, we should shatter just for looking like that.
Blue Diamond: No. I want to hear her make her case. I want to know what she thinks we're going to do with her. Because I want to do something worse.
[Steven gulps nervously]
Yellow Diamond: [warps in their throne chairs] Fine. Let's just get on with it, shall we?

"Eyeball" Ruby: I heard it straight from her. She said… "I'm the mighty Rose Quartz. I've got her shield and everything." And then, she threw me into space!
Steven: I tried to help you! I healed your gem!
"Eyeball" Ruby: And who else has the ability to heal Gems, other than the villainous Rose Quartz?!
Prosecuting Zircon: And there you have it. Rose Quartz did it and that's Rose Quartz. I rest my case.
Defense Zircon: Oh, she's good.

Steven: I did it!
Defense Zircon: Wha… What, what?! Stop!
Blue Diamond: No! I want to hear what she has to say.
Lars: [muffled] Get us out of here, Steven!
[Steven is elevated up to the Diamonds' height]
Yellow Pearl: State your name for the record, please.
Steven: I, um… I am Rose Quartz… and I'm guilty.
Defense Zircon: Wait! No, don't say that!
Steven: Everything you guys I did, I did. And I did it by myself. I'm sorry. I'll accept any punishment you want to give me. [points down to Lars] Just let him go! And leave the Earth alone.
Yellow Diamond: Ha! Sounds like a solid confession to me.
Blue Diamond: How? How did you do it? How did you shatter Pink Diamond?
Steven: [nervously] Um, well…I did it on Earth in front of Pink Diamond's palanquin. I was probably like "Stop!" And she was all like, "No!" So we fought -- I think. And she probably did some cool moves. I probably did some cool stuff, too, some jump-kicks and stuff. But I was most likely deeply conflicted about deciding to shatter her. Definitely crying. I probably had to use the Breaking Point to do it.
Blue Diamond: It was a sword! [covers her eyes, crying and a blue light fills the room, making everyone except Lars tear up] You… shattered her…with a sword! [starts sobbing]
Yellow Diamond: [walks up and comforts Blue; coldly to Steven] That's quite enough testimony from you! We shall take a short recess.
[Back in the Waiting Room…]
Defense Zircon: What are you saying in there?! "Maybe" this, "probably" that! Oh, what do you mean, probably?!
Steven: Look I just... I don't actually know how it happened, okay?
Defense Zircon: You don't know?!
Steven: I...
Defense Zircon: [grabs Steven by the shirt collar and picks him up] Don't tumble my rocks! Both our gems are on the line! Did you do this or not?!
Steven: It was me, alright! [Defense Zircon let's go of his shirt and drops him] Rose Quartz did it, and I've got her gem, so I'm the one who's got to pay for this.
Defense Zircon: You don't know how it happened. [Steven shakes his head] I get it. There's a reason they want you to explain how you did it.
Steven: Huh?
Defense Zircon: It's because it doesn't make sense!

Defense Zircon: Blue Diamond, for the purpose of this argument, may I present your palanquin?
Yellow Diamond: is this necessary?
Blue Diamond: Isn't it? Please, proceed. [waves up her hand, warping in her palanquin]
Defense Zircon: Now, as the records show, Pink Diamond was shattered just outside a palanquin, much like this. Witnesses said, Pink had stepped out and had only taken a few steps forward when Rose attacked her from the front. The question no one seems to be asking is… How?
Blue Diamond: I've been asking that question.

Yellow Diamond: You think you can get away, Rose? You stood your ground on that little speck called Earth. But you're on our world now.

Off Colors edit

Padparadscha: Oh my gosh, something incredible is going to happen to Lars!

Lars' Head edit

Steven: But it doesn't feel right to just leave you here.
Lars: You said yourself that everyone on this planet is out to get you. You won't be safe until you're back on Earth.
Steven: But, Lars--
Lars: Don't argue with me! You're always trying to help me. You brought me back to life. Just let me be somebody who deserved it.

Dewey Wins edit

Gemcation edit

Raising the Barn edit

Back to the Kindergarten edit

Peridot: This used to make sense to me. I thought life was generated in a kindergarten. Formless, aimless energy channeled into new, useful gems. But life doesn't start in a kindergarten. It ends here. I've gotten used to plants everywhere. Bugs and breeze and sunshine...all of that has been sucked out of this place.

Sadie Killer edit

Kevin Party edit

Lars of the Stars edit

Emerald: [on screen] It's over! I've got you now you miserable off-colors!
Lars: You'll never take us alive, Emerald!

Lars: You don't get it, do you, Steven? [starts tearing up and sniffles] It should be me. [starts crying] I'm the one that should be hanging out with the Cool Kids! She's getting back at me for everything I've done!
Connie: Do you really think Sadie is living her life just to get back at you?
Lars: Why else would she be having so much fun without me?!
Steven: Because life goes on, no matter what happens. She was so upset when she found out you'd be stuck in space, Lars. She really misses you, but, she can't stay sad forever. She started hanging out with the cool kids, she quit the Big Donut, all because she needed to do something to feel better.
Connie: And look at you! Steven said you'd be hiding in some cave on Homeworld, but you're not! You're out here fighting for freedom with all your new friends in tow! Are you doing any of this to hurt Sadie?
Lars: No! I'm doing this because I have to. [tears up] I'd never do this to hurt Sadie because-
Steven: Because!
Connie: Because!
Both: Because you're best friends!
[Lars watches them fuse into Stevonnie]
Stevonnie: And best friends wouldn't do anything to hurt each other!

Jungle Moon edit

Stevonnie: What? I-I'm… home?
Dr. Maheswaran: [muffled] You were told to be prepared cycles ago. [rises up from the carpet, on her phone] There will be no more excuses. Get it done. And don't expect me to look kindly upon this transgression. Embark at once.
Stevonnie: Mom? What is she talking about? [quickly rolls out of the way]
Dr. Maheswaran: [walking across the room, towards the front door] Yes, I know there's organic life on the surface, it's an invasion.
Stevonnie: [shouting] Hey, Mom! What are you talking about?!
Dr. Maheswaran: You will stick to my orders and you will destroy them!
Stevonnie: [sighs] I hate it when she ignores me.
Dr. Maheswaran: No. Hm. No. I will not repeat myself. Hm. That is simply unacceptable.
Stevonnie: Hey, Mom!
Dr. Maheswaran: [as Stevonnie climbs all the way up to her shoulder] Well, you'll have to remember, won't you? The dullness of this exchange tires me. Just land the dropships and do your pathetic job for once. Or I'll shatter you and your crew myself.
Stevonnie: [moves Dr. Maheswaran's phone away and shouts into her ear] Hey, Mom, what are you doing?!
Dr. Maheswaran: [opens her eyes with Yellow Diamond's pupils, looking down at Stevonnie] Honey, please. Give me a moment. [picks Stevonnie off her shoulders and sets them down on the floor as she is transfigured into Yellow Diamond, sits on a chair, summoning a panel with her hand, as the setting changes to the interior of a Diamond Moon Base]
Stevonnie: [sees Gem dropships flying towards a planet colony; squealing in excitement] Whoa, cool! Yellow! [jumps up to her chair] Hey, Yellow.
Yellow Diamond: Oh, you're still here.
Stevonnie: What are you doing?
Yellow Diamond: I'm commanding the dropships to colonize this planet.
Stevonnie: I wanna command a dropship!
Yellow Diamond: Well, when you have your own colony, you can command whatever you want.
Stevonnie: I want a colony! [Yellow Diamond presses buttons on the panel with four diamonds] I want one now! [screen unlocks revealing a dropship on the panel] What's this?
Yellow Diamond: I'm contacting the leader of the fleet.
Stevonnie: [amazed] Let me do it! [starts pressing buttons on the screen but Yellow Diamond grabs her arm]
Yellow Diamond: [angrily] DON'T TOUCH THAT!
Stevonnie: [irritated] Why not? You have so many worlds and I don't even have one! It's not fair! I want ONE! I want my own army! I want my own planet! I deserve it! I'm just as important as YOU!
Yellow Diamond: [angrily] Then why don't you act like it, Pink?!
[Stevonnie walks away, holding their arm, angry; approaches a window and clenches their fist; Pink Diamond is seen through their reflection and the hand punches the glass, smashing it; suddenly wakes up from the dream, falling out of the hammock on the ground]
Stevonnie: (talking through Connie) Whoa! [breathing hard] Steven, what was that? (talking through Steven) Diamonds. I'm having Diamond dreams again. But, why now? Why here? [looks up and see a mural of Yellow Diamond] No way. This is just like the Moon Base orbiting Earth. [climbs up to the control room and sees the fragment planet before from their dream] Whoa, now. That must've been a colony. Wait a second. [walks over up to the glass windows and looks the smashed glass] Pink Diamond was here. Oh! [runs over to the chair] And Yellow! [climbs onto the chair, seeing the levitated panel, wrapped in vines] That's it! I hope this thing still works. [pulls the panel towards them with a vine and activates it] That pattern… [presses the four Diamond symbols in the same pattern Yellow Diamond had done before; starts swiping through the screens] Nope. Nuh-uh. [swipes and sees a selfie of Yellow Pearl and Yellow Diamond] Yikes.

Your Mother and Mine edit

Garnet: Come on, everyone. Let me tell you the story of the real Rose Quartz. [Flashback story begins; narrating] It was Era 1. The Diamonds, unique in their flawlessness, sought to expand their perfection across the galaxy. And it was for this purpose that Pink Diamond chose her first colony-- the planet Earth. On Earth, every Gem was made to serve Pink Diamond, each with a role to play in her world's perfect empire. In comparison to their creator, their existence was ordinary. They were life-forms only meant to fit their mold, and no one had ever dared to think otherwise. Until, there was Rose Quartz. In stature, she was no different than any other Quartz. And for a time, she did her best to carry out her Diamond's bidding. However, she began to take notice of her strange colony and the life that existed there. Curiosity turned to appreciation… Appreciation turned to fondness… And fondness turned to love. Soon, she was unable to keep her findings secret, and she began asking her fellow Gems if they knew of the life on Earth and what they made of it. She continued to pry her fellow Kindergartners with questions so odd, that word of her eventually made its way to Pink Diamond. Rose Quartz was summoned at once.
[Pink Diamond spoke first as Rose Quartz was being summoned]
Pink Diamond: Quartz, what have you been saying down there?
Rose: My Diamond, it has come to my attention that your colony, Earth, bears life. While I know these organic life-forms serve no purpose, I ask that we leave this planet and spare their lives.
Garnet: [narrating] Pink Diamond thought for a moment, and then laughed, a wicked, empty sound.
Pink Diamond: [laughing] You wish to save these life-forms at the expense of our own? Ha! Don't be absurd. Return to your post, and I will forget your insolence.
Garnet: [narrating] And with that, Rose Quartz was dragged back to her kindergarten for duty. [A gem drags Rose away and she continues working] Only Rose could no longer stand to continue aiding in the destruction of Earth. She had no choice. She had to fight.
Rose: [stops working and jumps into the air, changing her uniform into a dress before destroying an injector, stands on the broken injector and speaks to the other Quartzes] Is this what you want-- to inject, to build?! I've seen the life that exists for itself, and it lives here! Will you destroy it, or will you join it?
Garnet: [narrating] Rose's message began to resonate to Pink Diamond's dismay. Her colony was falling apart. So, like a coward, she called for her Diamond allies, Yellow and Blue, to help. But Rose also found herself with allies, other Gems that were cast out for being wrong-- A Pearl who belonged to no one… A Bismuth who built weapons for rebels instead of towers for tyrants… An entirely new fusion, for not power, but for love… And countless others, all inspired by Rose to live for ourselves on Earth. She was our leader. And Earth was our precious home. And those who fought to save it became known as… the Crystal Gems!
Rhodonite: Unbelievable!
Rutile Twins: There were Gems like us?
Padparadscha: Fighting.
Fluorite: For… their… freedom?
Garnet: Yes, and we were fearless! [Flashback resumes; narrating] It was an impossible fight, but we fought anyway. And the more Gems who saw us, the more who joined. But Pink Diamond's forces proved too strong. Rose feared that soon she would have nothing left to protect. Rose Quartz drew her rebel blade… and shattered Pink Diamond, saving the Earth for all time from her reign of terror.
Rutile Twins: Wow! That's incredible! I don't believe it!
Lars: [to Steven] Your mom did all that? That's awesome!
Rhodonite: Wait. What about the rest? What happened after that?
Garnet: [narrating] The other Diamonds were furious. In a last-ditch attempt to wipe out the Rebellion, the Diamonds launched a direct attack against Earth. And in their fury, they used their powers to end the fighting once and for all.
Padparadscha: I predict this story won't have a happy ending.
Rutile Twins: We were all told different stories. But they all ended the same way.
Fluorite: With Rose Quartz… being… defeated.
Rhodonite: This new version of the story is even worse! So, she was great, and they beat her? What are we supposed to get out of this -- that we can never win?!
Garnet: We haven't yet, but we can, and we will. They said they annihilated Rose's rebellion, but here we are. They said they annihilated all of you on Homeworld, but here you are! They think they have us on the run, but they're the ones that are running from the truth. And the truth is we... are... everywhere!
Rhodonite: But how many more of us can there be?
Steven: Way more than you think! I was only on Homeworld for, like, an hour before I ran in to you guys. There must be Off Colors all over the place.
Garnet: Rose used to say there was something about Earth -- something that set Gems free. But it's not just Earth. Look at you. Love, freedom -- it's universal. You all prove it every moment you live as yourselves. You can show everyone.
Fluorite: We… can do that?
Lars: Not while we're floating out here like sitting ducks.

The Big Show edit

Pool Hopping edit

Garnet: I think I get it.
Steven: Hm?
Garnet: Why my future vision has been so off. I have to change the way I think about you.
Steven: What?
Garnet: I've been looking into probable futures where you act like a child. I keep expecting you to run from responsibility and to turn to me for help, but you don't do that anymore. Those futures aren't probable at all. There's nothing wrong with this timeline or my future vision. I just need to factor in that you've grown up.

Letters to Lars edit

Can't Go Back edit

Lapis: This orb is an Observation Deck. The Diamonds used these to watch activities on their colonies from afar.

Blue Diamond: But this is what you wanted.
Steven: [wakes up and gasps; turns to see Lapis is missing] Lapis? [faces forward and sees the silhouettes of Blue, Yellow, and Pink Diamond]
Blue Diamond: You begged us for a colony of your own, and now all you want to do is be rid of it. First there were too many organics. Then their cities were too difficult to dismantle, and-and now these Crystal Gems. We're tired of your excuses, Pink.
Steven: The Diamonds.
Blue Diamond: This Rose Quartz can't hurt you. You can't be swayed by a few unruly Gems. [Holds her hand up in front of Pink Diamond as she's about to speak] Enough! You must understand, you are a Diamond. Everyone on this planet is looking to you. You don't even have to do anything. Just smile and wave. Show everyone you're unfazed by this little uprising. Your Gems will fall into line, and these Crystal Gems will be no more. As long as you are there to rule, this colony will be completed.

[After Lapis flies away, Steven looks at the mural of Pink Diamond and turns to Lion]
Steven: Lion, I need you to take me to Pearl.

A Single Pale Rose edit

Steven: It better not turn out that her phone was in her pocket...or she left it on the dresser or dropped it in the toilet. Seems about as likely as putting it away in your repressed war memories.

[Steven returns from Pearl's gem after learning the truth about how Rose Quartz "shattered" Pink Diamond]
Steven: I know.
Pearl: [tearing up] I wanted to tell you for so long.
Steven: Mom was Pink Diamond.
[Garnet and Amethyst stand in shock behind Steven]

Now We're Only Falling Apart edit

Amethyst: Let me get this straight. Rose Quartz, leader of the Crystal Gems, Steven's mom, was actually Pink Diamond?!
Steven: She faked her own shattering, and reformed to be Rose all the time.
Pearl: Pink Diamond's final command to me was that no one could know, but now that Steven does, I can finally tell you all everything!
Amethyst: Phew! I mean, a pink lion, a pink sword, and now Pink Diamond?! Huh, if you told me Rose invented cotton candy, I'd believe it. Right, Garnet? Uh, Garnet?
Garnet: [shaking and slowly gets up] Rose. She... she... [struggles to stay stable and defuses into Ruby and Sapphire]
Ruby: Sapphire...
Sapphire: [betrayed with anger] SHE LIED TO US! She lied about EVERYTHING! [freezes up the floor] She held our hands, looked us right in the eyes, and told us to never question who we are as Garnet. We never questioned ourselves, or her!
Ruby: We couldn't have known!
Sapphire: No, you couldn't have known. You never know what's going on. That's what I'm for!
Ruby: Sapphire...
Sapphire: But I never looked into her, I trusted her. I let her make fools of us all! [storms over to the warp pad]
Ruby: Sapphire, wait!
Steven: Guys! [slips on the ice]
Ruby: Please…We can just stay calm and talk about this, right? Let's just, talk.
Sapphire: Talk about what? How our relationship is based on a lie? What else is there to say? [warps away to Rose's Fountain]
Pearl: Ruby, I am so sorry.
Steven: Come on, Pearl. Help me explain everything to Sapphire.
Pearl: Right.
Steven: Sit tight, Ruby. We'll go and get Sapphire.
Ruby: Okay. [starts crying]

Sapphire: [grieving with sorrow] Everything we were running from, she was right there all along…using us for her little war…smiling at us with those knowing eyes… Making me believe in a better future that I couldn't see, because it wasn't real. And now here we are, our friends, shattered, and corrupted…of course she was a Diamond. What a long road she took to torture us all like this.
Steven: It wasn't like that. You know she didn't want anyone to get hurt.
Sapphire: I don't know that! I clearly don't know anything.
Pearl: You deserve to know everything. I was given to Pink Diamond just a few thousand years before she was given the Earth. I was supposed to make her happy, I just never could.

Pink Diamond: Could you imagine that running a colony would be this dull?
Pearl: I could imagine it, if you would like me to, my Diamond.

Pearl: Is everything alright, my Diamond? You seem troubled.
Rose: All this life that's been growing wild here on Earth…none of it will survive my invasion. We're not creating life from nothing. We're taking life, and leaving nothing behind.
Pearl: Forgive me, my Diamond. I shouldn't have brought you to such a place.
Rose: No. I needed to see this.
[scene shifts back to the fountain]
Steven: So she did want to protect Earth. She didn't realize what the colony was doing to the planet.
Sapphire: So what?! She suddenly started to care about Earth? Why did she have to rope us into all this? Why couldn't she just stop the colonization herself?
Pearl: She tried. When she told the other Diamonds she didn't want to go through with the colony, they told her to finish what she started. When she told the other Diamonds she wanted to preserve life on Earth, they created the zoo and threw a handful of humans in. She did everything she could as Pink Diamond. But her status meant nothing to Blue and Yellow. So she decided to make a stand, as someone they couldn't ignore. She was going to scare every Gem off the planet. But everything changed when she saw…your fusion.

Pearl: Before Garnet, Rose was only fighting for Earth. But Garnet changed everything. Rose wanted to fight for her, she wanted to fight for Gems! And maybe she was foolish, and maybe even...selfish, but she was-
Sapphire: Following us.
Pearl: What?
Sapphire: This whole time, we thought we were following her, but she was following us. How could she not after you swept her off her feet?

What's Your Problem edit

Sapphire: [picks up Ruby's letter to her and reads it] "Sapphire, you were right. I need some time to think. So I'm running away. Ruby." This can't be happening! [starts tearing up] Oh, Ruby! I'm so sorry! You left before I could take back all the horrible things I said to you!
Pearl: Well, Amethyst was with her. Right? Maybe she knows where she went.
[They look up and see Amethyst, laying on Steven's bed and playing a video game]
Steven: Amethyst, have you seen Ruby?
Amethyst: Yeah. I've seen her. She asked me for a pen and paper a while ago. Why?
Pearl: Because she ran away! Did you see where she went?
Amethyst: I don't know. Maybe she'll come back. It's not my job to babysit her.

The Question edit

Sapphire: Ruby! [quickly runs off the porch and approaches her] Ruby, I'm so sorry! I should have never said those awful things to you!
Ruby: [spits out the wheat grass from her mouth] Pt'ooey! Naw, you were right. [jumps off Horse Amethyst] Someone else told us we were the answer. But… I don't believe that anymore. At least, not 'til I hear it from you. [kneels down] Sapphire… Will you marry me?

Made of Honor edit

Steven: So, my Dad will finish playing the music, and then next you'll do the "I do's." And then I'll say… "I now pronounce you Garnet." And then you fuse! Everyone will cheer!
Sapphire: Everyone… who survived.
Ruby: Huh?
Sapphire: Oh, it's just… There's so many old friends who won't be able to come. All the Crystal Gems who were corrupted and bubbled in the basement.
Ruby: Maybe we could bring the bubbles up here?
Sapphire: No, no. It's not safe. We can't risk them getting out.

Bismuth: Hey everyone. Did you guys "Bis-muth" me?
[Pearl, Sapphire, Ruby and Amethyst drop their sodas simultaneously]
Peridot: Ha! I win! Also, less importantly, who are you?
Steven: I… invited Bismuth! I hope that's cool.
Sapphire: [slowly walks up to her] Bismuth. [hugs her]
Bismuth: Whoa, Sapphire!
Pearl and Ruby: Bismuth! [tackle her to the floor, and begin nuzzling her]
Sapphire: You wouldn't believe what we've all been through. I'm so sorry! We should've-
Bismuth: Look, I'm right there with you, Steven filled me in.
Peridot: So, is anyone going to introduce me?
Amethyst: Let's give 'em some space.

Reunited edit

Steven: Dearly beloved Gems, humans, lions big and small, living gourds, Onion, we are gathered here today to celebrate Ruby and Sapphire, two of my favorite people, who combine into one of my other favorite people! You all probably know her as Garnet. She's their love, given form. Now it's your turn to talk about that.
Ruby: I know this is all kind of silly, I mean, we've been together for 5,750 years.
Sapphire: And eight months.
Ruby: I used to feel like I wasn't much good, just one of me on my own. But when we're together, it feels like it's okay to just be me. So I wanna be me, with you, an-and, not even the Diamonds will come between us. And if they try, we'll beat 'em up!
Sapphire: Ruby, my future used to look like one single, obvious stream, unbending 'til the end of time. In an instant, you pulled me from that destiny and opened my eye to an explosion of infinite possible futures, streaking across space and time, altered and obliterated by the smallest force of will. [beat] What I mean is, you changed my life. And then, I changed your life. And now, we changed our lives.
Steven: Bismuth, the rings.
Amethyst: [gently bumps Bismuth] Hey, Bismuth, that's your cue.
[Bismuth, touched and crying by the vows, approaches them with the rings]
Steven: Ruby, do you take this Gem to have and to hold, on this and every other planet in the universe!?
Ruby: I DO!
Steven: And Sapphire, do you-
Sapphire: Yes.
Steven: [whispering] You didn't let me finish.
Sapphire: I'm just very excited.
Steven: Then by the power vested in me by the state of Delmarva, I now pronounce you… Garnet!

Garnet: What a wonderful idea. Humans found a way to make a moment's decision last forever. I won't need future vision to know I'll always remember this.
Steven: I'm so glad. [starts tearing up]
Garnet: Oh no. I'm sorry. Don't cry.
Steven: [wipes off the tears] I guess seeing everyone together's got me really choked up. [bigger tears begin flowing out of his eyes] Wait a second. You don't think…?
Garnet: [takes off her visor, opening her third eye] Blue Diamond!
Steven: She's here?!
Garnet: And she's not alone.
[The sky darkens quickly and everyone looks up to the sky, seeing Blue and Yellow Diamond's ships approaching]
Steven: Oh, no. It's the Diamonds! [runs up to Nanefua] Nanefua, get on your Nane-phone! We've got a code blue and a code yellow!
Garnet: This is it.
[As the Diamond ships approach the beach, they fly overhead them]
Pearl: Wha- where are they going?!
Steven: If they're not here for us, they must be here for the Cluster!
Bismuth: What's the Cluster?
Steven: It's a huge earth-destroying geo-weapon that the Diamonds made out of a bajillion gem shards!

Steven: There's no reason to fight. Let me talk to her. [approaches Blue Diamond to try and reason with her] Blue Diamond, please listen to me! I didn't shatter Pink Diamond. Pink Diamond's right here. It's pretty interesting when you think about it--
Blue Diamond: ENOUGH! [hurls an energy blast at Steven, knocking him back, only for Alexandrite to catch him]
Steven: Wait!
Blue Diamond: You cannot fathom how much I've mourned, what thousands of years of grief has done to me! [unleashes her aura, de-fusing Alexandrite, making everyone fall on their knees and tear up, except Connie]

Blue Diamond: I know this sword. This is the sword THAT SHATTERED HER! [destroys the sword as Steven gasps, which made Connie fall down only to be caught by Lion] You deserve this-- all of you!
Steven: Stop, please!
Amethyst: Steven…
Pearl: What do we do?
Steven: I don't know. She won't listen, she just wants to fight!
Garnet: Blue Diamond!
Blue Diamond: Who are you supposed to be?
Garnet: I am the will of two Gems to care for each other, to protect each other from any threat, no matter how vast or how cruel. You couldn't stop me 5,750 years ago, and you can't stop me now!
Blue Diamond: It's you, that Ruby and Sapphire that disrupted my court.
Garnet: This is supposed to be MY day!
Blue Diamond: You hope to defeat me by clinging to my feet?
Garnet: I just needed to keep you from taking three steps to the right.

Lapis: Knock her off this beach!
Garnet: Now's our chance! With all our strength together, we can take her down!
Steven: That's right! This is our home, our planet, our friends and family! We are the Crystal Gems!
Blue Diamond: Pathetic! You are NOTHING!

Peridot: [after Yellow Diamond emerges from her ship and frees Blue Diamond from the wreckage] Ha! I told her off, once. I can do it again. [jumps off Bismuth's hands and runs up to her] Hey! Yellow Clod! REMEMBER ME?!
Yellow Diamond: No. [zaps and poofs Peridot to her gemstone]
Steven: Stop! [jumps off Garnet's hands and runs up to the Diamonds] Don't do this! Listen to me, I'm the one you're missing! I'm Pink Diamond!
Yellow Diamond: [shocked and angry] You! [charges towards Steven as he summons his shield]
Garnet: Steven!
[Yellow Diamond stomps her foot on Steven in fury, knocking him out unconsciously]

Lapis: What else have you got?! I've only just begun to fight! [gets zapped and poofed to her gemstone by Yellow Diamond]
Steven: [shocked gasp] Lapis!

Steven: [leaps onto Peridot's gemstone] Hang in there, Peridot. [to Lapis' gemstone] You too, Lapis. [jumps high to the Diamonds as they're sitting down]
Yellow Diamond: [through her thoughts] How miserable. I knew Pink couldn't handle her own colony. But, I gave in. And now, I'm to blame for her fate.
Steven: Ah, her thoughts are too strong!
Blue Diamond: [through her thoughts] What good will any of this do? The more I make these Gems suffer, the more I long to see you again, Pink.

Blue Diamond: This feeling, I know it!
Yellow Diamond: It must be a trick! Show yourself, foe!
Steven: I'm not your foe. Please, just listen to me!
Yellow Diamond: There!
Steven: Please, the fighting has to stop. We aren't enemies. We're family. Please listen to me. I need you to know who I am!!!
Blue Diamond: Impossible.
Yellow Diamond: This aura...
Blue Diamond: It's you! Pink!

Legs From Here to Homeworld edit

Garnet: We can't just hand Steven over to Blue Diamond, she's a shatterer!
Bismuth: She's not gonna hurt him, look at her. She really thinks he's one of them.
Amethyst: [sobbing loudly] Somebody make Blue Diamond stop!
Connie: Are you guys okay?
Pearl: It's just… [sniffles] Blue Diamond's power. She's obviously relieved that Pink Diamond wasn't shattered after all.
[Yellow Diamond tries to reactive her ship but fails]
Yellow Diamond: Hmm. How could you do this to us, Pink? Why did you let us think you were shattered? Why the strange disguise? Why are you doing a voice? Why didn't you say something at the trial?! And Blue, could you please stop crying? I can't see. [wipes her tears, splashing the Gems]
Blue Diamond: Sorry. [sets Steven down]
Steven: My mom kept it secret from everyone.
Pearl: Ahem.
Steven: Almost everyone.
Yellow Diamond: What are you talking about?
Steven: Well, apparently, Mom… Oh, geez. You don't know what a mom is. Okay, Pink Diamond took the form of Rose Quartz permanently after faking her shattering. Then, Rose Quartz gave up that form to create a new life with my dad-- me. Rose passed her gemstone and some of her powers onto me, but that's all. I-I don't have any of Pink or Rose's memories. I'm sorry.
Yellow Diamond: Hmm. I'm sure your memories are in there somewhere, Pink.
Steven: Actually, I go by "Steven."

Yellow Diamond: We can only do so much, if it was the four of us.
Blue Diamond: Oh, no. We can't let her see this!
Steven: Who? Who do we need?!
Yellow Diamond: What do you mean, "who?" White.
Pearl: [shocked] White Diamond?
Amethyst: What?!
Pearl: Steven, White Diamond isn't like us. She isn't even like them. [gestures to Blue and Yellow Diamond] You have no idea what she's capable of.

[While traveling to Homeworld on Pink Diamond's ship…]
Steven: Should I have brought a gift for White Diamond? We are dropping in unexpectedly, and… I want to make a good first impression. Her help will mean everything for the Corrupted Gems.
Pearl: Steven...
Yellow Diamond: Hmph. "Good impression"? We'll be lucky if she ever speaks to us again after this.
Steven: But...
Blue Diamond: The thing is, White... can be... difficult.
Yellow Diamond: When we show up in this ship, it will be irrefutable that the last 6,000 years are now the biggest galactic embarrassment that's ever happened. And we're the ones to blame. (to Steven) If you don't want to be in a bubble for the next few millennia, I suggest you let me do the talking.

Familiar edit

Steven: Pearl!
Pearl: Steven! [runs over to Steven and hugs him] Oh, thank the stars! You're okay! What did White Diamond do? Did she hurt you?
Steven: No, she was like, "Welcome home." I don't think she understands that I'm not Pink Diamond. Where's Connie? And Garnet and Amethyst?
Pearl: They're still on the ship. [summons out his hot dog bag] I'm only here because I'm bringing your things. And they consider me one of your things.
Steven: Yeesh.
[Diamond chime plays]
Pearl: The Diamond chime -- it's Yellow.
[The door opens, revealing Yellow Pearl standing right there]
Yellow Pearl: Pink Diamond, my Diamond has requested your presence in the extraction chamber.
Pearl: Let's get you into a suit. [opens the bag]
[Steven, wearing his yellow swimsuit, Pearl, and Yellow Pearl walk through a yellow hallway]
Steven: Swim trunks don't seem very formal.
Pearl: Trust me, this will be more comfortable than jeans.

Yellow Pearl: Pink Diamond.
Steven: Please, call me Steven.
Yellow Pearl: Pink Steven.
Steven: No, just Steven.
Yellow Pearl: Just Steven.
Steven: Call me... Lasagna.
Pearl: Steven, stop. You're going to break her. [opens the extraction chamber door]
Yellow Pearl: Have a nice extraction, Pink Lasagna.
[Steven walks into the extraction chamber sauna]
Yellow Diamond: Pink.
Steven: Hi, Yellow. Cool sauna.
Yellow Diamond: It's new. Have a seat. [Steven uses his floating powers to jump up and takes a seat] So, you met with White. How was it?
Steven: All I got to say was, "Hi," and, "um," and, "I."
Yellow Diamond: Two and a half words -- that's a record.
Steven: Two and a half words isn't enough. I still need to talk to White about healing all the corrupted Gems!
Yellow Diamond: Hmm. Good luck. White never leaves her own head these days, and she never lets anyone in -- except you, I guess. It's so unfair. I have hundreds of successful crystal system colonies, but you get to see her because your one colony is a failure!
Steven: Maybe you should just… fail?
Yellow Diamond: [looks momentarily shocked, then starts laughing] Oh, Pink, you always did have quite a knack for making me laugh. You're almost worth the trouble.

Blue Pearl: [showing up] Pink Diamond, my Diamond was requested your presence.
[Steven, Pearl, and Blue Pearl walk down a blue hallway]
Steven: We barely talked about White at all. She had to rush to do a report, and I couldn't go with her. I get they're, like, busy, 'cause they're dictators and everything, but I need more time! [gasps and face-palms] I should have asked her what she was doing after the Citron thing!
Pearl: She'll be at that for a while. Yellow Diamond oversees all aspects of Gem production on every single one of her colonies. And when she's not doing that, she's off with her army, conquering the next one.
Steven: What about their days off, weekends?
Blue Pearl: My Diamond is awaiting our arrival.

Blue Pearl: [turns to Pearl] Welcome back.

Blue Diamond: You're here! Come in.
Steven: Okay! [runs and jumps into the pool, laughing] Whoo-hoo! (laughing) It's funny! I -- I live right next to the ocean, but I end up going to space to swim.
Blue Diamond: [laughs, causing the pool to shake a bit] You haven't changed. So silly. So small.
Steven: I'm not done growing. I'm not sure I can catch up to you and Yellow, though.
Blue Diamond: I'm so glad you're back... Steven.
Steven: Y-You actually said my name!
Blue Diamond: Steven. Steee-von? (chuckles) It's such a funny sounding name. You're so creative, Pink.

Steven: (sighs) This is so weird. Was this some sort of spa day or something? And what about Pink? Did she have a job here, or did she just sit in a room while they were off doing whatever?
Pearl: Before her colony, Pink used to throw massive balls.
Steven: [surprised] She was a juggler?!
Pearl: No -- Well, yes. But she would also throw parties for the other Diamonds to mark their many accomplishments. Every member of every court would show up to bask in the presence of all four Diamonds.
Steven: Even White would come?
Pearl: Oh, yes! Huh. I wonder what's even become of Pink's court.

Steven: ♫ Oh, I'll get them all together in one place / And once we're all together face-to-face / I'll show them all the error of their ways / And stop their spread of terror across space! ♫

Steven: I figured it out! Remember back when I was little and maybe kind of annoying, and I couldn't come along on adventures? You guys would still drop everything to hang out with me! That's Pink Diamond! I know I can do this! Just watch -- I'm gonna throw a huge ball, and I'm gonna invite everyone!

Together Alone edit

Pearl: The Pebbles have been working all night. What do you think?
Steven: It almost feels like home.
Garnet: Almost.

Yellow Diamond: A ball? We haven't had a ball in 6,000 years.
Blue Diamond: We haven't had Pink in 6,000 years!
Steven: Yeah! When White Diamond shows up we can tell her why we need her help on Earth!
Blue Diamond: And, this can also mark the beginning of Era 3.
Yellow Diamond: You're right, it's brilliant.
Steven: Thank you, Yellow! Thank you, Blue!
Blue Diamond: If White is going to be there everything has to be perfect! Pink, can you manage this on your own? Our Pearls can help you get started.
Blue Pearl: At your service, Pink Diamond.
Yellow Diamond: Make sure you go through all of our customs with Pink, since she has so much trouble recalling her past here on Homeworld.
Yellow Pearl: Yes, My Diamond.
Pearl: Era 3! Steven, you're already changing the world!
Steven: Yeah! Come on, party Pearls!
Yellow and Blue Pearl: We are at your command, Pink Diamond.
Steven: Just call me Steven.
Yellow and Blue Pearl: Whatever you command, Pink Diamond.

Steven: Balloons everywhere! Confetti cannons too!
Amethyst: Dibs on being the confetti cannon!
Yellow Pearl: Cannons are forbidden inside palace walls. These "balloons" you're referring to, are unprecedented and therefore out of the question.

Yellow Pearl: Pink Diamond! Your subjects will do the dancing for you! Why would a Diamond want to dance?
Steven: Because dancing's fun!
Yellow Pearl: What is "fun"?
Connie: You know, it's when you do something you wanna do, just because it feels good.
Yellow Pearl: I don't think we do that here.

Blue Diamond: The Sapphire will need to enter with the other Sapphires of course, and the Ruby will need to enter with the guard.
Steven: Woah, woah, woah. Are you talking about Garnet?
Blue Diamond: Garnet? Does "that" call herself a Garnet? What would you have her do? Enter with the Demantoids, the Hessonites, the Pyropes? Pink, I'm being very generous, but you can't expect me to-
Garnet: I won't go.
Steven: Garnet?
Blue Diamond: At least the Sapphire in there has some sense.

Yellow Pearl: Everyone, behold! The daunting, beauty and elegance that is, Yellow Diamond!
Yellow Diamond: Not a bad turnout, Pink.
Steven: I appreciate your attendance, Yellow.
Blue Pearl: Ahem, everyone prepare yourselves emotionally for the overpowering elegance that is, Blue Diamond.
Blue Diamond: You're doing great.
Steven: Thank you, Blue.
White Pearl: To those in attendance of the Era 3 ball, White Diamond... has more important things to attend to.
Steven: WHAT?!
White Pearl: Therefore, I will be here to observe in her place. Welcome to Era 3.
Steven: Gra!

Yellow Diamond: (through gritted teeth) Pink, what are you doing?!
Stevonnie: I was just dancing! (sees they have fused and everybody else looks in shock)
Blue Diamond: Pink, this is completely unacceptable! Unfuse or I'll make you!
[Ruby and Sapphire fuse and become Garnet]
Garnet: You'll have to go through me!
Pearl: (gasp) And me! (Runs over to Amethyst and fuses into Opal)
Amethyst: Yeah!
[two jades quickly fuse as well]
Lemon Jade: And me! [Opal and Stevonnie look at Garnet, and she shrugs] I knew it! I knew I couldn't be the only one!
[Yellow Diamond strikes the Jade Fusion, Opal, and Garnet with her lightning powers, causing them all to poof]
Stevonnie: Opal! Garnet!
Yellow Diamond: Pink, you've gone too far even for you. [picks up Stevonnie and throws them into a dark room] Stay in here and think about what you've done!
Stevonnie: No, wait!
[Yellow Diamond closes the door, ends the episode]

Escapism edit

Stevonnie: [singing] ♫ I guess I have to face, that in this awful place, I shouldn't show a trace... of doubt. / But pulled against the grain, I feel a little pain, that I would rather do... without. / I'd rather be free-ee-ee, free-ee-ee, free... / I'd rather be free-ee-ee, free-ee-ee, free... / Free-ee-ee, free-ee-ee, free... / from here. ♫
Steven: [wakes up and looks at Connie, who's asleep] Guess we'll see what happens.

Change Your Mind edit

Steven: [wakes up and looks up at the prison tower window] Oh, right -- prison.
[Blue Diamond enters]
Blue Diamond: I cannot believe you! Making a scene like that.
Steven: We weren't trying to make a scene! We were just... [turns to see that Connie is not present] dancing?

Blue Diamond: I cannot believe you -- making a scene like that!
Steven: Whoa -- dejá blue.
Connie: We didn't mean any harm! I asked Steven to dance; he wasn't trying to cause trouble!
Blue Diamond: What do you know about this, human?
Connie: [chuckles] You think I've never been grounded before?
Blue Diamond: "Grounded?"

Steven: This isn't normal. How many times did you lock her in here? How many times did you make her cry?!
Blue Diamond: [defensive] I didn't, I... and I'm doing it again... aren't I?

Yellow Diamond: What... are you doing?
Steven: I'm taking back my friends!
Yellow Diamond: [closes her eyes as she looks up from Steven to readdress Blue; annoyed] What are you doing, Blue? Take Pink back to the tower.
Blue Diamond: She prefers to be called "Steven."
Yellow Diamond: [slams her hand so forcefully against her throne that it cracks, stands up and assumes an angered stance] What are you talking about?! You can't keep bending the rules for her, Blue! She has to set an example, and we have to set an example! If we bend the rules for her, we have to bend them for everyone!
Connie: Well, maybe you should!
Yellow Diamond: Take them back to the tower, now!
Blue Diamond: I won't.
Yellow Diamond: Then I'll do it myself.

Yellow Diamond: When we thought Pink was shattered, when she abandoned us, I alone was there for you, and you would use your power against ME?!

Yellow Diamond: You'd hurt a fellow Diamond?!
Blue Diamond: Didn't we hurt Pink?! She was suffering in silence for ages -- just like our Gems -- just like me! And I know you're suffering in silence, too!
[Yellow Diamond claps her fist and uses her lightning power on Blue, causing her to begin to destabilize and scream]
Steven: Stop! [pulls out his shield and chucks it towards Yellow Diamond's hand, disrupting her concentration] You don't have to do this!
Yellow Diamond: Yes, I do! This is what White Diamond expects of all of us. From a thin flake of mica to the deepest, hardest stone, we all must make sacrifices for the sake of our perfect empire.
Steven: Does this look perfect to you?! My dad says if every pork chop were perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs.
Yellow Diamond: And that means... what?
Steven: It means if you try and make this empire perfect -- if you just wipe away everything you see as flawed -- you lose all the things that make you happy -- like hot dogs.
Blue Diamond: Or our Pink.
Yellow Diamond: Uhh... [falls to the ground on her knees in an uncharacteristic emotional breakdown] Stop. Stop it, Blue. Stop using your power on me...!
Blue Diamond: I'm not.

Steven: Hey, White, I know I was in there with you for a second, but I barely got to talk to you at all. There are so many Gems that are hurting right now. Even Blue and Yellow are hurting. You should hear what they have to say. [to Blue and Yellow; whispers] This is it.
Yellow Diamond: [struggling] We… W-we… We need to talk! About us. I've conquered so many worlds for the sake of the empire. I do everything you ask, and I do it all perfectly. But your very high standards put us all under a lot of pressure. A Gem could crack under so much pressure. We Diamonds may be hard, but we're also brittle.
Blue Diamond: [steps forward] White, we used to be close. Don't you remember? When Pink would make us laugh -- all those silly things she did for no reason. There was a reason. She wanted us to be happy together. But we weren't, and we're still not. I know my purpose isn't to be happy, but I find it harder and harder to enforce your rules when they make me miserable. When they make us all miserable.

Steven: [grabs Pearl's gem] Come on, Pearl. Dance with me! [twirls around and fuses with Pearl to form Rainbow Quartz 2.0]
Rainbow Quartz 2.0: Well, what do you know? It's Rainbow 2.0! Now, this is a fine mess we're in. (gasps) That won't do. (blows raspberry) Rainbow Quartz powers, activate! Ah, yes. Now that's two stones, with one bird.
[Steven and new reformed Pearl unfuse]
Amethyst: Wow! Nice form, Pearl.
Pearl: Oh, [chuckles] thank you. I'm particularly excited about the jacket. Aah! Steven! We fused!
Connie: Are you guys okay?
Steven: Almost. [looks down at Ruby and Sapphire's gems in his hands] Garnet, we're up against a giant robot. We need your help. Please come out. I'm here! I love you! [hugs them tightly as he begins to glow and starts fusing, to form Sunstone]

Sunstone: Awwwwwwwwwww yeah! You better step off! Chillax, my dudes. Your rockin' pal Sunstone is holdin' it down.
Pearl: Wow!
Amethyst: Holy...
Connie: All right!
Peridot: Unbelievable!
Sunstone: Oh, you better believe it.
Peridot: Okay!
Connie: Sunstone, what are we gonna do? White Diamond's never going to listen, and she's never going to let us leave.
Sunstone: If she won't listen, we'll make her listen.
Amethyst: And how are we gonna do that?
Sunstone: I know she's in there. We'll bust into her head and change her mind.
Everyone: Right!
Sunstone: Let's take that bully down! [to the viewers] But remember kids: if you ever have to deal with a bully, be sure to tell an adult. [yanks Pearl and Amethyst onto their shoulders and sprints towards the giant pink foot of the ship] Ally-oop! [summons her suction cups] Kids, don't try this at home. Ha! Bungacowa!

Garnet: We need to be bigger.
Steven: Then let's fuse… All four of us. It's the only way we're gonna get up to her head.
Amethyst: I'm in!
Pearl: I'm in, too.
Garnet: Then it's decided. It's time to form Obsidian.
[Connie, Bismuth, Peridot, and Lapis back away to give some space for the Crystal Gems to perform their fusion dance; Obsidian is formed by letting out a big loud cry for battle]
Peridot: [amazed] They're HU-U-U-U-GE!!

Steven: You're wrong! I'm not my mom!
White Diamond: But don't you know things about her that you couldn't possibly know?
Steven: I-I've just been connecting with her. My powers, they-they help me to connect to others. I'm not her. I'm just feeling her feelings.
White Diamond: Isn't it obvious? Even though you've embedded yourself in that human child, your light can't help shining through!

Connie: Don't listen to her Steven! She's just trying to mess with you!

White Diamond: What is this?! Where is Pink?
Pink Steven: She's gone.
White Diamond: What did you say? Answer me!
Pink Steven: [shouting] She's GO-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-NE!!!!!!

White Diamond: Agh! Don't you raise your shield at me! I only want you to be yourself! If you can't do that, I'll do it FOR YOU!!!

Connie: Steven! [rushes to Steven and hugs him] Are you back together? Are you you?
Steven: Yeah. Yeah! I’m me! I’ve always been me.
White Diamond: NO! You are Pink Diamond! That is Pink Diamond's gem! You do not look like this! You do not sound like this! You are not half-human! You're just... acting like a child!
Steven: I am a child. What's your excuse?
White Diamond: [starts blushing, and notices the Gems under her control doing the same] What's happening? What is this? What's wrong with them? They're turning... pink! I don't understand, I'm in control, I-- [gasps] Something's wrong! With ME! No!

White Diamond: What is this? I feel... ridiculous. Yellow, Blue...
Yellow Diamond: [gasps] She's off-color...
White Diamond: This can't be happening. I can't have a flaw, I'm supposed to be flawless! If I'm not perfect then... who am I? If you're not Pink, then... who are you? Who is anyone?
Steven: You know, if you just let everyone be whoever they are, maybe you could let yourself be whoever you are too.
White Diamond: But I'm not supposed to be like this! I'm supposed to know better, I'm supposed to be better, I'm supposed to make everything better!
Steven: You can. But first, you're gonna have to leave your own head.

Padparadscha: I predict our long journey through space will soon be over.
Lars: Welcome home, guys.
Rhodonite: We finally made it! Earth! No more running, no more hiding! No more Diamond Authority! [they notice the Diamonds, who have heard everything] Well, we're cracked.

Sadie: Lars? It's really you!
Lars: Sadie?
Rhodonite: There she is! It's her!
Padparadscha: We're about to see Sadie-- in person!
Lars: Hey.
Padparadscha: [gasps in excitement] Lars isn't going to know what to say!
Rhodonite: Shh! Give 'em a moment!
Sadie: Lars…look at you! You're… You're a space pirate!
Lars: Look at you! You're a rock star!
Sadie: [Laughs] Well… [Laughs]
[They both laugh]
Lars: I think it suits us!
Sadie: Yeah. Me, too!

Steven: [singing] ♫ I don’t need you to respect me, I respect me. / I don’t need you to love me, I love me. / But I want you to know you could know me, / If you change your mi-i-i-i-i-i-ind, / If you change your mi-i-i-i-i-i-ind, / If you change your mi-i-i-i-i-i-ind, / Change your mi-i-i-i-i-i-ind. ♫
