  • Ride like the wind, Bullseye!

Buzz Lightyear

  • Woody once risked his life to save me. I couldn't call myself his friend if I weren't willing to do the same. So, who's with me?

Mr. Potato Head

  • Woody's been shelved!
  • Prepare to meet [shouts; he accidentally sticks his extra pair of shoes on his face and runs into a wall] Mr. Angry Eyes! Argh, argh!

Al McWhiggin

  • [on the phone as he starts packing] To overnight, 6 packages to Japan is how much? What? That's in yen, right? DOLLARS?'! Oh, you are deliberately takin' advantage of people in a hurry! You know that?'!


Zurg: [in video game] So, we meet again Buzz Lightyear, for the last time!
Buzz: Not today, Zurg!
[Zurg fires at Buzz, whose reflecting Zurg's attacks with a Metalic Shield, Buzz throws a shield and hits Zurg, he fires at Buzz as he jumps over. Just as Buzz is about to fire his laser, Zurg finishes him off, leaving only his lower half to remain]

[At the beginning of the movie, Rex just lost a Buzz Lightyear vs. Emperor Zurg game, right when nearly winning]
Rex: No, no, no, no.
Buzz: Oh, you almost had him.
Rex: I'm never gonna defeat Zurg!
Buzz: Sure, you will, Rex. In fact, you're a better Buzz than I am.
Rex: But look at my little arms! I can't press the fire button and jump at the same time!
[gestures those buttons]

Woody: Here's your list of things to do while I'm gone: batteries need to be changed. Toys at the bottom of the chest need to be rotated. Oh, and make sure everyone attends Mr. Spell's seminar on what to do if you or part of you is swallowed. Okay? Okay, good, okay.
Buzz: Woody, you haven't found your hat yet, have you?
Woody: No! And Andy's leaving for Cowboy Camp any minute, and I can't find it anywhere!
Buzz: Don't worry, Woody. In just a few hours, you'll be sittin' around a campfire with Andy, makin' delicious, hot schmoes.
Woody: They're called s'mores, Buzz.
Buzz: Right. Right. Of course. Has anyone found Woody's hat yet?

Andy's Mom: Andy, honey, come on! Five minutes and we're leaving.
Andy: Five minutes? Hmm...
[cut to a setup Andy has made for a quick playtime]
Andy: [as Bo Peep] Help, help, somebody help me! [as Woody] Let her go, evil Doctor Pork Chop! [as Hamm] Never! You must choose, Sheriff Woody. How shall she die? Shark? Or death by monkeys? [Andy picks up some of the "monkeys-in-a-barrel", imitating monkey; as Hamm] Choose! [as Woody] I choose Buzz Lightyear! [Andy grabs RC's remote, puts Buzz on top and speeds him towards Hamm; as Hamm] What? That's not a choice! [RC flies through the air and knocks Hamm off the Bucket O' Soldiers; as Buzz] To infinity and beyond! [Hamm falls off and coins clatter on the floor as Woody] I'll save you, Miss Peep! [as Bo Peep] My hero! [he has her kiss him as Woody] Thanks, Buzz! [as Buzz] No problem, buddy! [he links their arms] You should never tangle with the unstoppable duo of Woody and Buzz Lightyear! [Andy pulls too hard and Buzz's arm makes Woody's tear slightly at the shoulder] Oh, no!
Andy's Mom: Andy? Let's go! Molly's already in her car seat!
Andy: But Mom, Woody's arm ripped!
Andy's Mom: Oh no! Well maybe we can fix him on the way.
Andy: Nah, just leave him.
Andy's Mom: I'm sorry, honey, but you know, toys don't last forever.

[In Woody's dream, Andy came home from the cowboy camp. Woody then yells at the other toys that Andy's back. The toys ran back to their places. Andy ran up to his bedroom, riding on his stick with a horse head on. He then sees Woody]
Andy: Hey, Woody! Did you miss me? [takes Woody and plays with him] Giddyup, giddyup, giddyup, ridin' cowboy! [notices Woody's broken arm; depressed] Ohh, I forgot, you're broken. I don't wanna play with you anymore.
[In slow motion, Andy drops Woody on the cards. Woody fell through the cards and into the trash can. Woody then got scared in the trash can and the arms and hands reaches out to grab him. Woody then wails for Andy]
Woody: No, Andy, no, no, Andy, no! [now choking] Andy. Andy.
[the silhouette of Andy came and looks at Woody]
Andy: [echo] Byyyyyyyyyyyyyye, Woodyyyyyyyyy.
Woody: No, no! ANDY!
[Andy closes lid and Woody's nightmare ends. Woody wakes up, screaming, and sees his broken arm tangled around his neck]

Woody: [after having met the rest of the Roundup gang in Al's apartment] Okay, I'm officially freaked out now.
Prospector: [as the Roundup gang walk over to Woody] Oh, we've waited countless years for this day! It's good to see you Woody.
Woody: Listen, I don't know what... hey! How do you know my name?
Jessie: Everyone knows your name, Woody.
[Woody pauses for a moment]
Prospector: Why you don't know who you are, do you! Bullseye?
[Bullseye turns up the lights, revealing an entire set of Woody's Roundup brands with Woody on them. Woody glances at them in amazement]

Hamm: All right. Nobody look till I get my cork back in.
Buzz: Good work, men. Two blocks down, and only 19 more to go.
Rex: What?!
Other toys: 19?!
Mr. Potato Head: Are we gonna do this all night? My parts are killing me.
Buzz: Come on, fellas! Did Woody give up when Sid had me strapped to a rocket?
Other toys: No.
Buzz: No! And did he give up when you threw him out of the back of that moving van?
Mr. Potato Head: Oh, ya had to bring that up.
Buzz: No, he didn't! We have a friend in need, and we will not rest until he's safe in Andy's room! Now let's move out!
Announcer: And that concludes our broadcast day.

Slinky: Pardon me, gentlemen, but have either of you seen a cowboy doll with a bad arm?
Blue Bomber: [politely] Why, no. I haven't.
Red Rocker: [yelling] Hey, he was talkin' to me!
Blue Bomber: No, he was talkin' to me!
Red Rocker: Why, you! I'll...!
[they both fight until the red robot's head pops up]

Buzz #2: [Rex having pushed the other toys down due to slipping, causes Buzz #2's weight to give in] What was I thinking? My anti-gravity servos
[presses the button on his utility belt, lighting it up, unaware that he's just a toy]
Buzz #2: Hang tight everyone, I'm going to let go of the wall.
[the other toys all look up at him shocked]
Slinky: Huh?
Rex: What?
Mr. Potato Head: He wouldn't!
Buzz #2: One!
Hamm: He would.
Buzz #2: Two!
Other toys: Don't do it, Buzz!
Buzz #2: Three!
[he lets go of the wall and they all land on the elevator, which is coming up the shaft]
Buzz #2: To infinity and beyond! Approaching destination. Reengaging gravity. [turns off belt; gets off the elevator into the vent] Area secure.
[the other toys moaning]
Buzz #2: It's okay, troops, the anti-gravity sickness will wear off momentarily. Now, let's move!
Mr. Potato Head: Remind me to glue his helmet shut when we get back.

[Buzz uses Mr. Potato Head's eye to see what Woody and his roundup gang are up to in Al's apartment]
Buzz: What's happening?
Mr. Potato Head: [frightened] Oh, it's horrible! They're torturing him!
Rex: [gasps] What are we gonna do, Buzz?!
Buzz: Use your head!
[he and the others use Rex as a battering ram]
Rex: But I don't wanna use my head!
[they charge at the vent and break through to the apartment]

Woody: Buzz, I can't go. I can't abandon these guys. They need me to get into this museum. Without me, they'll go back into storage. Maybe forever.
Buzz: Woody, you're not a collector's item. You're a child's plaything. You... are... A TOY!!
Woody: For how much longer? One more rip, and Andy's done with me. And what do I do then, Buzz? Huh? You tell me!
Buzz: Somewhere in that pad of stuffing is a toy who taught me that life's only worth living if you're being loved by a kid. And I traveled all this way to rescue that toy, because I believed him.
Woody: Well, you wasted your time.
Buzz: Let's go, everyone.
Slinky: What about Woody?
Buzz: He's not coming with us.
Rex: But Andy's coming home tonight.
Buzz: Then we'd better make sure we're there waiting for him.
[the other toys make their way back to the vent]
Woody: I don't have a choice, Buzz. This is my only chance.
Buzz: To do what, Woody? Watch kids from behind glass and never be loved again? Some life.

Woody: [after seeing a human boy hugging him on the set of "Woody's Roundup"] What am I doing? Buzz! Wait! Wait!
Prospector: Woody, where are you going?
Woody: You're right, Prospector. I can't stop Andy from growing up... but I wouldn't miss it for the world. [runs to the heat duct]
Prospector: No!

[right when the Prospector is out of his box, he screws the heat duct back in place to prevent the rest of the gang's escape]
Jessie: Prospector?!
Woody: You're outta your box!
Prospector: I tried reasoning with you, Woody, but you keep forcing me to take extreme measures. [taps his axe onto the remote, turning off the TV]
Woody: Wait a minute, you turned on the TV last night, not Jessie!
Prospector: Look, we have an eternity to spend together at the museum. Let's not start by pointing fingers, shall we?
Woody: You really are Stinky Pete, aren't you?
Jessie: Prospector, this isn't fair!
Prospector: Fair? I'll tell you what's not fair: Spending a lifetime on a dime-store shelf watching every other toy be sold! Well, finally my waiting has paid off, and no hand-me-down cowboy doll is gonna mess it up for me now! [throws his box back into his display case]
Woody: Buzz! Help, Buzz! Guys!
Prospector: It's too late, Woody! That silly Buzz Lightweight can't help you.
Woody: His name is Buzz Lightyear!
Prospector: Whatever. I've always hated those upstart space toys. [climbs back into his box]

[Al has just packed up the Roundup toys, including Woody, into his suitcase to go to Japan]
Buzz: Quick, to the elevator!
[All run down the vent to the elevator. Al has just pressed the button to send the elevator up]
Buzz: Hurry, I can hear it coming.
[the toys all come to a halt as the elevator arrives up the shaft. An Emperor Zurg toy that Buzz accidentally set loose from Al's Toy Barn has arrived standing on top]
Zurg: So, we meet again, Buzz Lightyear, for the last time.
Other toys: [shocked] It's Zurg!
[Zurg draws out his blaster, which is really a nerf ball gun]
Rex: Watch out. He's got an ion blaster.

Zurg: Surrender, Buzz Lightyear. I have won!
Buzz #2: I'll never give in! You killed my father!
Zurg: No, Buzz. I am your father!
Buzz #2: NO!

[the toys are now in a pet carrier, placed onto the conveyor belt at the airport]
Alien #1: The Mystic Portal. Ooh!
Buzz: Once we go through, we just need to find that case.
[they pass through into an area with multiple conveyor belts and multiple suitcases, Mr. Potato Head gasps, as his extra pair of shoes and angry eyes fall out of his compartment; the toys then slide down at a fast rate, and tumble out of the pet carrier they've been in onto the conveyor belt below]
Slinky: [spotting a green suitcase in the distance in front of them] There's the case.
Hamm: [spotting another green suitcase on the conveyor belt below them] No, there's the case.
Buzz: You guys take that one, we'll take this one.
[Buzz and Slinky go after the suitcase spotted in the distance, whilst Hamm, Rex, Mr. Potato Head, and the Aliens go after the suitcase underneath them]

[last lines]
Buzz: You still worried?
Woody: About Andy? Nah. It'll be fun while it lasts.
Buzz: I'm proud of you, cowboy.
Woody: Besides, when it all ends, I'll have old Buzz Lightyear to keep me company. For infinity and beyond.

Flik: Isn't that exciting, Heimlich? Our first day of shooting.
Heimlich: Oh, yeah, yeah! It's so exciting!
Flik: You know, I can't believe you talked them into making A Bug's Life 2.
Heimlich: Oh, oh, yeah, I can hardly believe it also. But there's a little baby tiny thing I forgot to tell you.
Flik: What's that, Heimlich?
Heimlich: Well, it's a 2 movie, but it's not A Bug's Life 2.
Flik: What...? I don't understand. What is it then?
Director: And... action!
[Buzz chops down smash branches and Flik and Heimlich falls]

[Woody is asking the Roundup gang to come back to Andy's with him]
Woody: Bullseye, are you with me? [Bullseye licks him like a dog] Ah! Okay! Good boy. [walks toward Prospector's box] Prospector, how 'bout you?
[turns box around]
Prospector: [talking to two Barbie dolls] And so you two are absolutey identical? [laughs softly] You know, I'm sure I could get you a part in Toy Story 3. [notices the camera crew filming] I'm sorry, are we back? Oh! All right, girls. Lovely talking with you, [pushes box door open] yes, any time you'd like some tips on acting I'd be glad to chat with you. Alright, off you go, then.
[they leave]
