Centauri: The amusing thing about this is, it's all a big mistake. That particular Starfighter game was supposed to be delivered to Vegas, not some fleaspeck trailer park in the middle of tumbleweeds and tarantulas. So it must be fate, destiny, blind chance, luck even, that brings us together. And as the poet said, the rest is history.
Alex Rogan: Where are you going? Where are you taking me?
Centauri: I told you, I want to save it for a surprise. Hey, are you kind of kid who reads the last page of a mystery first? Who pesters the magician to tell you his tricks? Who sneaks downstairs to peek at his Christmas presents? Noooo, or course you're not. [singsong voice] That's why I'm not gonna tell you!
Alex Rogan: Oh, God.
Centauri: Besides, I just love surprises, don't you?


Grig: Remember, Death Blossom delivers only one massive volley at close range... theoretically.
Alex Rogan: What do you mean "theoretically"?
Grig: After all, D.B. has never been tested. It might overload the systems, blow up the ship!
Alex Rogan: What are you worried about, Grig? Theoretically, we should already be dead.
Grig: [shrugs and chortles, confirming Alex's last comment was probably true] Open Death Blossom packs, switches on.

Jane Rogan: [gestering to Alex's Gunstar ship, shocked] Alex, what is all this?
Alex Rogan: I, uh, I've been to another planet, Ma.

Lord Kril: Damage report!
Ko-dan Officer: Guidance system out. Auxiliary system out.
Lord Kril: Divert! Divert!
Ko-dan Officer: She won't answer the helm! We're locked into the moon's gravitation pull. What do we do?
Lord Kril: [his eyepiece swings over left eye] We die.

Lord Kril: Fire the meteor gun!
Xur: My dear Ko-dan friends, let us not forget. It was your own emperor who granted me command of this armada. But only I hold the secret to the Frontier. Only I know the location of the Starfighter base. And therefore, only I will give the order to fire!
Lord Kril: Forgive me, Xur.
Xur: [smirks] You are forgiven, Commander Kril. Meteor gunner, fire.

Louis Rogan: [trying to sleep, angry] What's up, Alex?
Alex Rogan: Back to sleep, Louis, or I'm telling ma about your Playboys!
Beta: You're blowing it, Alex.
Louis Rogan: [looks down from the bed, shocked] What the shit?
Beta: [imitating Alex] I said back to sleep, Louis, or I'm telling ma about your Playboys!

Maggie Gordon: Alex in space? Is this for real?
Beta: Yes! That's what I'm trying to tell you - it's ALL for real.
Maggie Gordon: Well, then don't talk, DRIVE!

Maggie Gordon: I love you so much, Alex.
Alex Rogan: I'll always love you, Maggs
Louis: [derisively] Diarrhoea!

Rylan Bursar: [disgustedly] Rrrr... E sanchay!
Centauri: E sanchay! Onee mat swella! Preeta! Preeta!
Alex Rogan: Centauri, what's going on?
Centauri: He's just saying how delighted he is that you are here, and if there's anything that he can do to make your stay more enjoyable, just give him a ring.
Alex Rogan: My stay! What are you talking about? Where are we?
Centauri: Welcome to Rylos, my boy!
Alex Rogan: Rylos! Wait a minute... you mean, you mean... like the game?
Centauri: Oh, he's quick! He's quick! He's very quick! He's speechless! So long, Alex! Have fun! May the luck of the Seven Pillars of Booloo be with you at all times. [muttering] Oh, someday these cheapskates will thank Centauri, trust me.

Rylan Bursar: Return the money, Centauri.
Centauri: Return the money! Are you delirious? Do you know how long it to invent the games? To merchandise them? To get them in the stores by Christmas?
Grig: It must be terribly embarrassing for you and I do sympathize. However...
Centauri: But I saw him fight! He could be the greatest Starfighter ever!
Alex Rogan: That was just a game, Centauri!
Centauri: A game? Well, you may have thought it was a game, but it was also a test. Aha, a test! Sent out across the universe to find those with the gift to be Starfighters. And here you are, my boy! Here you are!
Alex Rogan: Right, here I am, about to be killed!
Centauri: Killed! You don't seriously think it's dangerous, do you? Don't be silly! Trust me!

[Kril is receiving the broken Zandozan transmission]
Lord Kril: The last Starfighter...
Xur: [confidently] Is dead! The last Starfighter is dead! Nothing can stop us now! Ahead full to Rylos!

[to Alex] You still want to go? And miss all the excitement?

[to an alien] I'm sorry, it was an accident. I didn't mean to step on your, uh, whatever that is.

[to Grig] Maybe there is a Starfighter left.

[voice in video game] Greetings, Starfighter. You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the Frontier against Xur and the Kodan armada.
