Peter Quill: What should we do next? Something good or something bad?
Gamora: We'll follow your lead, Star-Lord
Peter Quill: A bit of both!
Rhomann Dey: Peter Jason Quill. He's also known as Star-Lord.
Nova Corps Officer: Who calls him that?
Rhomann Dey: Himself, mostly. Wanted mostly on charges of minor assault, public intoxication and fraud...
Peter Quill: Oh, I'm sorry. I don't know how this machine works...
I am surrounded by the biggest idiots in the galaxy.Gamora
Peter Quill: [about Gamora] She betrayed Ronan, he's coming for her. That's when you...
Drax the Destroyer: ...Why would I want to put my finger on his throat?
Rhomann Dey: They call themselves the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Nova Corps Officer: What a bunch of a-holes.
Rocket Raccoon: That's for if you wanna blow up moons.
Gamora: No one's blowing up moons.
Rocket Raccoon: You just wanna suck the joy out of everything.
Ain't no thing like me, except me!Rocket Raccoon
Korath the Pursuer: Star-Lord!
Peter Quill: Finally!
Gamora: And by the way... Your ship is filthy.
Peter Quill: Filthy? She has no idea. If we had a blacklight, it would look like a Jackson Pollock painting.
We are Groot!Groot
Gamora: I'm a warrior, an assassin. I don't dance.
Peter Quill: Really? Well, on my planet, we have a legend about people like you. It's called Footloose. And in it, a great hero, named Kevin Bacon, teaches an entire city full of people with sticks up their butts that, dancing, well, is the greatest thing there is.
Gamora: ...Who put the sticks up their butts?
Drax the Destroyer: [after Groot releases the 'fireflies' from his body] Where did you learn to do that?
Peter Quill: I'm pretty sure the answer is "I am Groot".
