Flash Gordon: I promise. Cross my heart and hope to...

Kala: What do you mean, "Flash Gordon approaching"?
Colonel of Battle Control Room: On a Hawkman rocket-cycle. Shall I inform His Majesty?
Kala: Imbecile! The Emperor would shoot you for interrupting his wedding with this news! Fire when Gordon's in range!

The Emperor Ming: I do.
Dale Arden: I do NOT!
