Movie Quote Quiz

Dr. Hans Zarkov: We are only interested in friendship. Why do you attack us?
The Emperor Ming: Why not? Pathetic earthlings. Hurling your bodies out into the void, without the slightest inkling of who or what is out here. If you had known anything about the true nature of the universe, anything at all, you would've hidden from it in terror.

The Emperor Ming: Klytus! Are your men on the right pills? Maybe you should execute their trainer.

Dale Arden: I'm a New York City girl. It's a little too quiet around here for me.

Klytus: No one, but no-one dies in the palace without a command from the Emperor.

Princess Aura: Look! Water is leaking from her eyes.
The Emperor Ming: It's what they call tears, it's a sign of their weakness.

Munson: Dr. Zarkov! There's no sun! It's 8:24 in the morning, and there's no sun.

Prince Vultan: Onward my brave Hawkmen! Let this be known forever as Flash Gordon's Day.

Flash Gordon: This Ming is a psycho.

Klytus: Who said that?
Ming's Floating Servant: The fair-haired prisoner.
Klytus: Who are you?
Flash Gordon: Flash Gordon. Quarterback. New York Jets.
Dale Arden: Dale Arden, Your Highness. Live and let live, that's my motto.

Hedonia: It has no name. Many brave men died to bring it here from the Galaxy of Pleasure... It will make your nights with Ming more... agreeable.
Dale Arden: Will it make me forget?
Hedonia: No, but it will make you not mind remembering.

The Emperor Ming: Did you enjoy yourselves in Sibaria? I understand you flew the doctor there last week. Klytus kindly fed me the information.
Princess Aura: Klytus? He wants me himself. His agents are always making up lies about me.

Klytus: Should we stop the torture?
The Emperor Ming: No.
Princess Aura: Father! Damn you, Father.

Kala: We're going to empty your memory as we might empty your pockets... Doctor.
Dr. Hans Zarkov: Don't empty my mind! Please, I beg you! My mind is all I have! I've spent my whole life trying to fill it.

Prince Vultan: My thanks to you, Flash.
Flash Gordon: What for?
Prince Vultan: For giving an old bird a second chance.

Flash Gordon: Where am I?
Princess Aura: Back from the dead. I've saved you.
Flash Gordon: My God! How?
Princess Aura: By magic, of course. With a kiss, because I like you.

Princess Aura: But my father has never kept a vow in his life.
Dale Arden: I can't help that, Aura. Keeping our word is one of the things that make us... better than you.

Klytus: Bring me... the bore worms.
Princess Aura: No! Not the bore worms.

The Emperor Ming: I'd much rather see you on my side, than scattered into... atoms.

Dale Arden: Flash, Flash, I love you, but we only have fourteen hours to save the Earth.

Prince Vultan: GORDON'S alive.

Prince Barin: Freeze! Yer bloody bastards.
