Dialogue edit

Cale: [to Tek, after escaping from Po and Firrakash] I've gotta be scarce for a while.
Korso: [slides into the seat next to Cale] You don't know the half of it.
Cale: Are you still bothering people? Hey, go away!
Korso: [to Tek] Great job with the kid, Tek. He's a charmer.

Preed: [sarcastically, as Akima is examining Cale] Such motherly concern for the subject.
Cale: Why am I naked?
Preed: You positively glow with maternal warmth Akima - it's very touching. I must have you.
Akima: In your dreams.
Preed: Akrennians don't dream, remember?
Akima: They don't bathe much either.

Cale: I'm the guy with the map here and this is big medicine, right?
Akima: Big medicine? Let me see. [as she looks at the map in the palm of his hand] This is really it. This can save us?
Cale: [softly speaking] Yeah! [out loud] Yeah, I guess so.
Akima: Do you know what this means?
Cale: [slightly embarrassed due to being naked] I'm really wanting those pants right about now.

[Preed is trying to shoot a cricket but keeps missing]
Gune: Preed! Preed! Aren't you supposed to be watching for the Drej?
Preed: [not paying attention] Yes, Caveman. Drej bad, we good. Now go look at something shiny for a while.
Gune: I think you'd better look again!
[Preed looks up from the gun and sees Drej]
Gune and Preed: [shout] DREJ!

Akima: What exactly are we looking for?
Cale: This ship's gonna help save mankind!
Akima: What exactly are we looking for?
Cale: Not a clue.

Preed: [catching Cale and Akima spying on Korso] Well, look what I found. Two little birdies, itchy to fly!
Korso: How long were they standing there?
Akima: Long enough.
Cale: You lied. Everything you said, everything you told me...?
Korso: Not everything. Your father hid his ship, then the Drej killed him. All because he couldn't face the truth!
Cale: [angrily] Yeah?! What is the truth?!
Korso: That the human race is outta gas! It’s circlin' the drain! It’s finished! The only thing that matters is grabbin' whatcha can before somebody else beats ya to it.
Cale: No! I don't believe that!
Korso: Then you're even more like your father than I thought - a fool.

[Gune has been injured by a bomb]
Stith: Gune, are you all right?
Gune: I'm...all right...for business. [chokes] I'll just take a little...nap, since I'm so...very sleepy. [seemingly dies, but a short time later he is seen in the ship, battling the Drej] I've finished my nap!

[last lines]
Akima: What are you going to call it?
Cale: I think I'm gonna call it... 'Bob'.
Akima: Bob?
Cale: You don't like Bob?
Akima: You can't call a planet 'Bob'!
Cale: Oh, so now you're the boss. You're the king of Bob.
Akima: Well, no, but...
Cale: What?
Akima: Can't we just call it 'Earth'?
Cale: Well, no one said you had to live on Bob.
Akima: [laughing as she leans in to kiss Cale] I'm... never... calling it that.
[Cale and Akima wave to Stith and Gune as they fly by and wave as they depart]

[first lines]
Sam Tucker: [narrating]
Once in a great while mankind unlocks a secret so profound that our future is altered forever. Fire, electricity, splitting the atom... At the dawn of the 31st century we unlocked another. It had the potential to change humanity's role in the universe. We called it the "Titan Project" and it was a testament to the limitless power of the human imagination. Perhaps that is what the Drej feared most, for it brought them down upon us without warning and without mercy. Cale, that day, the day that the Drej descended from the sky, the only thing that mattered was keeping you safe.

Preed: [attempting to pass himself and Stith off as slave traders and Korso as a slave so they can rescue Akima; Stith is holding on to Korso]
[Stith peeks around the corner while still holding onto the rope around Korso]
Stith: Ah. All right. I’ll take out the guard.
Preed: [takes the rope from Stith] Easy, big girl. This requires cunning and deception. [getting the guard's attention] Hello.
Slave Trader Guard: Ah.
Preed: Uh, I'm an Akrennian trader. I wonder if we might sneak a peek at the new shipment before they go on the market.
Slave Trader Guard: You're not allowed.
Preed: Traditionally, no. You're absolutely right. But you see, I need a new slave rather badly.
[slaps Korso]
Preed: Stop fidgeting, worm! [he kicks Korso and Korso gives him a dirty look] And I can't wait till auction. I have to be on the shuttle. I have an appointment to have my ear shaved. It has to be booked months in advance. You see my problem.
Slave Trader Guard: Hmm. You're lying. [points gun at them] He's not a slave, and you're not traders.
Preed: But...
Slave Trader Guard: [pointing to Korso] He doesn't carry himself like a slave. Look at the way he stands. Probably ex-military.
Preed: How...
Slave Trader Guard: Akrennian traders always threaten before they ask a favor. It's tradition.
[to Stith]
Slave Trader Guard: And your robes are made out of bedspreads.
[Stith gets a feeling that they’ve been exposed as frauds]
Preed: Ah. Just out of curiosity, did we have a plan "B"?
[Stith knocks the guard out]
Preed: Hmm. An intelligent guard. Didn't see that one coming.
[Preed tazes the guard and continues on his way]

Sam Tucker: [During his posthumous holographic message which Cale activated on the Titan] Cale. If this message has been activated, then I have died before finding you. I hope you can forgive me for breaking my promise to see you again. What I wouldn't give to see you now. I can't change the past, Cale, but I hope I can give you a future. This ship has the power to create a planet, to create a new home. Your ring would have activated the transformation sequence, but the Titan's power cells were drained in the escape. They are unable to fuel the transformation. It is up to you to restore their power. After that, the procedure is simple.
