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


Alex Rogan: There's no fleet, no Starfighters, no plan? One ship, you me, and that's it?
Grig: Exactly. Xur thinks you're still on Earth. Classic military strategy: surprise attack.
Alex Rogan: It'll be a slaughter!
Grig: That's the spirit!
Alex Rogan: No, MY slaughter! One ship against the whole armada?
Grig: Yes, one gunstar against the armada. I've always wanted to fight a desperate battle against incredible odds.

Centauri: Alex! Alex! You're walking away from history! History! Did Chris Columbus say he wanted to stay home? No! What if the Wright Brothers thought that only birds should fly? And did Galoka think that the Ulus were too ugly to save?
Alex Rogan: [confused] Who's Galoka?
Centauri: [realizing his mistake] Never mind.
Alex Rogan: Listen, Centauri. I'm not any of those guys, I'm a kid from a trailer park.
Centauri: If that's what you think, then that's all you'll ever be!

Alex Rogan: Otis, I just never had a chance to have a good time around here.
Otis: Things change. Always do. You'll get your chance! Important thing is, when it comes, you gotta grab it with both hands and hold on tight!

Alex Rogan: Grig, when did the hanger go up?
Grig: I told you, when Xur attacked.
Alex Rogan: And where were the Starfighters?
Grig: In the hanger.
Alex Rogan: You mean they're dead?
Grig: Death is a primitive concept; I prefer to think of them as battling evil, in another dimension!
Alex Rogan: In another dimension? How many are left?
Grig: Including youself?
Alex Rogan: Yeah!
Grig: One!

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.

Alex Rogan: [calling out] Maggie! You're never going believe this!
Maggie Gordon: [slaps him, angrily] I told you, Alex! Me and my, how did you put it, "strange sexual urges" aren't talking to you anymore!

Alex Rogan: Hey, you look like me!
Beta: Of course I do. I'm a beta unit.
Alex Rogan: What the hell is a beta unit?
Beta: A beta unit is a simuloid. An exact duplicate of you, only not as loud.

Alex Rogan: Store's closed, mister.
Centauri: I'm not here for cigarettes or bubblegum, my boy. Can you tell me the name of the person who broke the record on that game over there, and where I might find him?
Alex Rogan: Alex Rogan, and you're lookin' at him.
Centauri: Alex Rogan. [laughs]
Alex Rogan: Who are you?
Centauri: Centauri's the name. I invented Starfighter, which is why I'm here.
Alex Rogan: It is?
Centuari: It is. We have to talk about a matter of utmost importance [gestures toward the back of his seat] Step into my office.

Alex Rogan: The truth is you're scared of leaving this trailer park.
Maggie Gordon: I'm not scared of leaving this trailer park, Alex.

Beta: [grimly smiling] You owe me one, Alex.

Louis Rogan: Woo! All right! We're being invaded!

Beta: Good luck, Alex.
Alex Rogan: You too... Alex.

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?

Maggie Gordon: I love you, Alex Rogan.
