Korben Dallas: [Leans down and kisses Leeloo. Leeloo swipes his gun and holds it to his head]
Korben Dallas: You're right, you're right, I shouldn't have done that. I'm sorry.
Leeloo: Senno ecto gammat!
Korben Dallas: I'm sorry, I'm sorry!
Leeloo: ecto gammat!
Korben Dallas: [In a later scene] When she woke up, she said a bunch a stuff. I didn't understand any of it but... what does 'ecto gammat' mean?
Priest Vito Cornelius: Uh... never again, without my permission.
Korben Dallas: That's what I thought.

President Lindberg: [phone call from President to Korben Dallas] Major Dallas, I first would like to salute a warrior, you are a shining example of this Army's might, in the name of the Federation and it's territory...
Korben Dallas: Mr. President, Mr. President, any idea when you gonna be getting to the point?
President Lindberg: O.K. There's a ball of fire, it's 1200 miles in diameter headin straight for Earth, and we have no idea how to stop it. THAT's the problem.

Leeloo: Hi.
Korben Dallas: Oh, so you speak English now.
Leeloo: Yes. I learned.

Korben Dallas: [shoves a bag into Ruby's hands] You guard this with your life, or you're gonna look like this guy here! You green?
DJ Ruby Rhod: G-green.
[cut to the President's office, where every word is being heard over the radio, transmitted galaxy-wide on Ruby's radio show]
Korben Dallas: Super green?
DJ Ruby Rhod: Super green.
President Lindberg: Is that your idea of a discreet operation?
General Munro: Don't-don't worry, sir. I know my man. He'll calm things down.
[cut back to Fhloston, as three Mangalores go down in an explosion of gunfire, and Korben charges out a door, guns blazing]

Fhloston Hostess: We have twelve swimming pools, and two on the rooftop. All the restaurants are between level two and level ten. The planet Fhloston has 400 beaches, all accessible until 5 PM. Then, the airship goes higher, to offer you a better view with your dinner.
Korben Dallas: Is the Diva here yet?
Fhloston Hostess: Not yet.
Korben Dallas: Are there any tickets left for this opera? I'm a really big fan...
Fhloston Hostess: You have a seat reserved, front row, next to RU-BY RHOD! He's so talented, don't you think? I just love him... he's so sexy...

Korben Dallas: Leeloo... how do we open these stones?
Leeloo: Wind blows... Fire Burns... Water Falls...

Korben Dallas: How many are in there?
Fog: I-I-I-don't...
Korben Dallas: Let's count.
[looks around the corner and counts the Mangalors in the room; draws back quickly]
Korben Dallas: Seven on the left, five on the right.
[turns the corner again and fires six shots in rapid succession]
Korben Dallas: Four on the left, two on the right.

Mr. Kim: You got a message.
Korben Dallas: Yeah
Mr. Kim: You're not gonna open it? It might be important.
Korben Dallas: Yeah, like the last two I got were important. The first one was from my wife, telling me she was leaving. The second was from my lawyer, telling me he was leaving... with my wife.
Mr. Kim: Ah, that's bad luck. Grandfather say it not rain everyday. This is good news, guaranteed. I bet your lunch.
Korben Dallas: Okay, you're on.
Mr. Kim: Come on...
[Reads]
Mr. Kim: You are fired. Oh.
Korben Dallas: Well, at least I won lunch.
Mr. Kim: Good philosophy, see good in bad, I like.

DJ Ruby Rhod: What was that honey? It was BAD! It had no fire, no energy, no nothing! So tomorrow from 5 to 7 will you PLEASE act like you have more than a two word vocabulary. It must be green.
Korben Dallas: Can I talk to you for a second?
[Throws Ruby up against a wall]
Korben Dallas: I didn't come here to play Pumbaa on the radio. So tomorrow from 5 to 7 your gonna give yourself a hand, green?
DJ Ruby Rhod: Supergreen.

Korben Dallas: What's your name?
Leeloo: Leeloo Minai Lekarariba-Laminai-Tchai Ekbat De Sebat.
Korben Dallas: Good. That... that whole thing's your name, huh? Do you have, uh... a shorter name?
Leeloo: Leeloo.

DJ Ruby Rhod: We'll find out everything there is to know about the D man: his dreams, his desires, his most intimates of intimates, and from what I'm looking at, "intimate" is the stud muffin's middle name. So tell me my man, are you nervous in the service?
Korben Dallas: Mmm... not really.

Korben Dallas: Whoa, lady, I only speak two languages, English and bad English.
[Leeloo continues to talk in divine language]
Korben Dallas: Now, don't get me wrong, I'm all for conversation, but maybe you could just shut up for a moment?
