Superman II (1980)
Lex Luthor: [to Zod and Company, at the half-wrecked White House] ... Hi! Lex Luthor.
[no reaction from the Super Villains]
Lex Luthor: LEX LUTHOR! Possibly you've heard the name? the Greatest Criminal Mind on Earth!
Ursa: I told you this was a puny planet.
[moves menacingly towards Luthor]
Lex Luthor: Whoa whoa whoa wait... why don't you get to know me better?
[Ursa continues moving towards Luthor]
Lex Luthor: WAIT! I can give you anything! The... the... the... the Brass Ring, unlimited freedom to maim and kill! PLUS! Lex Luthor's keen mind, Lex Luthor's savvy, Lex Luthor's school of career guidance...
[Ursa begins crushing his hand]
General Zod: We already have this without you. You cannot bargain with what you don't have.
Lex Luthor: [sucking on his thumb to numb the pain] Oh Great One, what I am bargaining with is what YOU do not have: The Son of Jor-El.
General Zod: The Son of Jor-El?
Lex Luthor: [confused] I just said that.
General Zod: Jor-El? Our jailer?
Lex Luthor: [sarcastically] No, Jor-El the BASEBALL PLAYER...
[Ursa and Non start moving menacingly towards Luthor]
Lex Luthor: Yes, Jor-El your jailer.
General Zod: The Son of Jor-El! On this planet!
Lex Luthor: Perhaps you know him better by his nom de voyage, or the name he travels under: Superman.
General Zod: So THIS is Superman! How do you know of Jor-El?
Lex Luthor: Well, Your Excellency, as I explained earlier: I'm about the best there is.
General Zod: Revenge! We will kill the son of our jailer!
Ursa: Revenge!
Lex Luthor: REVENGE! Now we're cooking!
General Zod: He flies then?
Lex Luthor: Constantly.
General Zod: He has powers as we do?
Lex Luthor: Certainly. But, oh Magnificent One, he is one, while you are three.
[Non growls]
Lex Luthor: Or four, if you count him twice!
General Zod: Come! We will bring him to his knees!
Ursa: Praying!
General Zod: Yes, to ME!
Lex Luthor: Wait!
[the Super Villains turn to face Luthor]
Lex Luthor: First you must find him... and Lex Baby is the only one who knows where he is...

General Zod: No! Who else is seeing this?
Reporter: Well, with the satellite link up just about everybody, I mean the whole planet.
General Zod: The whole planet Houston?
Reporter: Earth... The whole planet Earth.
General Zod: [pleased] You may continue.
Reporter: As the extraordinary story continues...
Ursa: [petulantly to Zod] Enough of this! If the whole planet is watching, cannot we show them something more interesting?
Army Major: Throw down your arms and surrender. This is an order!
Ursa: General Zod does not take orders. He gives them.

Ursa: You are master of all you survey.
General Zod: [bored] So I was yesterday. And the day before.

General Zod: [looking at the Presidential Seal on the floor of the Oval Office] I see you are practiced in worshiping things that fly. Good. Now, rise before Zod.
[the "President" stands up]
General Zod: Kneel before Zod.
[the "President" kneels]
General Zod: You are not the President. No one who leads so many could possibly kneel so quickly.
President: [appears from behind the other men] I'm the man they're protecting. I'm the President. I'll kneel before you, if it will save lives.
General Zod: It will, starting with your own.
Ursa: [walking towards a group of military men] What a backwards planet this must be, where the men wear the ribbons... and the jewelry!
[rips the ribbons off a general's uniform]
President: What I do now, I do for the sake of the people of Earth. But there is one man on this planet who will NEVER kneel before you.
General Zod: Who is this imbecile? Where is he?
President: I wish I knew.
[kneels]
President: Oh God.
General Zod: Zod!

Ursa: [after using heat vision on a snake] Did you see that? Did you see what I did? I have powers beyond reason here!
General Zod: We all have them, my dear.

Lex Luthor: What am I gonna do with you people, huh? I held up my end, I delivered the blue boy. What do I get from my triple threat? "Bow! Yield! Kneel!" That kind of stuff closes out a town.
General Zod: Why do you say this to me when you know I will kill you for it?
Lex Luthor: Kill me? Lex Luthor? Extinguish the greatest criminal flame of our age? Eradicate the only man on Earth with...
Ursa: Kill him!
Lex Luthor: ...Superman's address?
General Zod: Come. The three of us will crush the son of our jailer!

Ursa: Come forward. Your General wishes to speak.
General Zod: I am General Zod. Your ruler. Yes, today begins a new order. Your lands, your possessions, your very lives, will gladly be given in tribute to me, General Zod! In return for your obedience you will enjoy my generous protection. In other words you will be allowed to live.
[rips a Generals stars from his shoulder]
General Zod: So you are a General? And who is your superior?
General: I answer only to the President.
General Zod: And he will answer to me! Or all of his cities will end up like this one.

Ursa: [watching an Army helicopter] Look. They need machines to fly.
General Zod: What bravery. Be nice to them, my dear. Blow them a kiss.

General Zod: This "super-man" is nothing of the kind; I've discovered his weakness.
Ursa: Yes?
General Zod: He cares. He actually cares for these Earth people.
Ursa: Like pets?
General Zod: I suppose.
Ursa: Sentimental idiot!

General Zod: Son of Jor-El. We were beginning to think you were a coward.
Superman: I'm not a coward, Zod.
Ursa: Let him prove it!
General Zod: Possibly not. It is extremely likely you are merely a fool. Like father, like son.
Superman: Somehow, I just can't hear you, Zod.
General Zod: [Using his heat vision, he breaks off the entire side of a nearby building and catches it with both hands] Then die, as you deserve to!
[He throws it at Superman, who uses his own heat vision to blow the huge projectile apart]

Ursa: [after their carnage on the moon] Strange, I tore those metal fibers like paper. And what HE did... was amazing! Something is happening...
General Zod: Yes, to all of us. The closer we come to an atmosphere with only one sun, a yellow sun, the more our molecular density gives us unlimited powers.
Ursa: [pointing to Earth] They come from there, a place called Houston.
General Zod: Then we will go there to rule. FINALLY, to rule.
[turning to Ursa]
General Zod: And you, will shall everything you wish.
Ursa: Men! To kill!
General Zod: And I will lead!

Ursa: What an undemanding male this Superman must be.
Lois Lane: Yeah, and you could use a tuck here and there yourself, sister.

Willie: Please, Mister.
Ursa: He's a General.
Willie: Please, Mister General! Please let my daddy down!

Ursa: If he cares so much for these humans...
[grabs Lois]
Ursa: ... why not take his favorite?

J.J.: Hey sweet thing, set them buns down here!
Ursa: [she sits and holds out her arm] Let's just hold hands.
J.J.: [he takes her hand] Let me know if this tickles.
[she throws him, breaking the table]
J.J.: I think my arm's broken.
Boog: Girl or no girl, you're gonna spit teeth. Get up!
[Zod flings him through the bar wall into the dirt road, right in front of Willie and the Sheriff]

Ursa: [on the moon] You. What kind of a creature are you?
Astronaut: Just a man.
Ursa: A man?

General Zod: No one may leave without my permis -
[spots Willie escaping on horseback]
General Zod: I said no one leaves!
[at Zod's direction, Non hurls a projectile, obliterating Willie and his horse]
Woman: He was only a boy!
Ursa: Who will never become a man!


Superman (1978)
[first scene: General Zod and his minions are on trial. Jor-El states the accusations]
Jor-El: This is no fantasy, no careless product of wild imagination. No, my good friends. These indictments I have brought you today, specific charges listed herein against the individuals - their acts of treason, their ultimate aim of sedition... These are matters of undeniable fact. I ask you now to pronounce judgement on those accused...
[Jor-El approaches the accused and indicates Non]
Jor-El: On this... this mindless aberration, whose only means of expression are wanton violence and destruction.
[Jor-El indicates Ursa]
Jor-El: On the woman Ursa, whose perversions and unreasoning hatred of all mankind have threatened even the children of the planet Krypton.
[Jor-El indicates Zod]
Jor-El: Finally, General Zod - once trusted by this council, charged with maintaining the defense of the planet Krypton itself. Chief architect of this intended revolution, and author of this insidious plot to establish a new order amongst us - with himself as absolute ruler.
[pause]
Jor-El: You have heard the evidence. The decision of the council will now be made.
[all members of the Council announce "Guilty!"]
General Zod: The vote must be unanimous, Jor-El. It has therefore now become your decision. You alone will condemn us, if you wish, and you alone will be held responsible by me.
[pause]
General Zod: Join us.
[wordlessly, Jor-El turns and walks off]
General Zod: You have been known to disagree with the council before. Yours could become an important voice in the new order, second only to my own! I offer you a chance for greatness, Jor-El! Take it! Join us!
[Jor-El doesn't even look back]
Jor-El: [DELETED LINE, mostly to himself] I've seen the likes of your new order, too many times before. And I know only too much about what you call "greatness".
General Zod: You *will* bow down before me, Jor-El! I swear it! No matter if it takes an eternity, YOU *WILL* BOW DOWN BEFORE ME! *BOTH YOU AND, ONE DAY, YOUR HEIRS!*
Ursa: [All three criminals are imprisoned within the Phantom Zone] Forgive me...!
General Zod: I shall return...!
