"Silver Surfer: The Origin of the Silver Surfer: Part 3 (#1.3)" (1998)
Galactus: This planet dies so that I may live. A course of events that has occurred a billion times before.
The Silver Surfer: But it has been wrong a billion times before. This place reminds me of Zenn-La, and given the time it too might become such a refuge. But even if it did not, still would its life be sacrosanct. I MUST MAKE MY STAND!
Galactus: Your stand will destroy you.
The Silver Surfer: Better to perish for what I believe in, than endure forever as a traitor to life!
Galactus: Then so be it!

The Silver Surfer: Galactus, the time has come for us to talk.
Galactus: There is no need, my herald. I have found a planet with more life energy that I ever dared imagine. And for that reason I forgive your failure to perform your duties. For now.
The Silver Surfer: But I do not forgive you!
Galactus: Those are audacious words, Silver Surfer.
The Silver Surfer: I want my life back! I demand my soul! I pledged that I would serve you, not give up my past!
Galactus: We would discuss this another time, my Silver Surfer. For now it is your duty - no, your obligation to seek out my next source of energy!
The Silver Surfer: It is YOUR obligation to return my memories. For now and ever more!
Galactus: I said GO!

The Silver Surfer: Galactus brushed me away with as much thought as I might give a speck of dust!

The Silver Surfer: I... I seem to be making a habit of falling out of this world's sky.
Frankie Raye: Ever consider getting into a Twelve Step program for that?

The Silver Surfer: I used my Power Cosmic to heal you.
Frankie Raye: Not too shabby. How about giving some of that action to the rest of the planet?
The Silver Surfer: Now that I know who I was and who I am, that is exactly what I shall do!

The Silver Surfer: Galactus, our bargain is over. You have deceived me and I serve you no more. I will stop your carnage, even if it costs me my life!

The Silver Surfer: GALACTUS! When I agreed to become your herald it was to lead you away from sentient beings. This world is populated by men, by women who think, feel, who... who dream!

The Silver Surfer: This planet has not the time for me to argue with one who will not even deign to answer. Instead, I will have to apply the Power Cosmic more directly. Just as the power of Galactus created these engines of destruction, the power he has given me shall destroy them!

Galactus: Audacity is one thing, my Silver Surfer. But rebellion is quite another. You have accomplished something that no force in the universe ever has before.
The Silver Surfer: What is that?
Galactus: You have forced me to interrupt my repast. I do not know whether to congratulate you for this unique deed, or vaporize you.
The Silver Surfer: Do what you will, my former master. But I cannot allow you to kill any more!'
Galactus: [laughs] Former master? FORMER, you say? Can it be that I have been wrong about you, Silver Surfer? You are neither audacious nor rebellious, but simply mad!
The Silver Surfer: Perhaps I was to believe that I could make any agreement with you! But now I know the truth!
Galactus: And because of that you would attempt to destroy your creator - permit no mistake about it, your creator I am! I took away your memories because it was necessary. I knew that with them you would never be able to serve me.
The Silver Surfer: Galactus, can you not understand? I no longer care about what you've done to me. It's what you are doing to this world!

The Silver Surfer: Zenn-La, the most beautiful place in the universe. Soon I will be in the loving arms of Shalla-Bal...

The Silver Surfer: What has happened? Where is Zenn-La?
Galactus: Norrin Radd, I said that you could leave me. And I have kept my word. But never did I say you could return to Zenn-La.

The Silver Surfer: Watcher! Watcher, where is my world? Where is my home? Tell me, please.
Watcher Prime: I cannot tell you. So mighty is Galactus that he has moved Zenn-La to a place where it is hidden, even from me. Truly I am sorry.

The Silver Surfer: I will find you, Shalla-Bal! No matter how long or dangerous the way, no matter what prevail I must endure! Never will I stop searching! I swear by our love!

The Silver Surfer: I live. And... and so does the planet. You have abandoned it. Why?
Galactus: Since the dawn of time the purpose of my life has been my continued survival. To that end have I devoted all my great power. But you, Silver Surfer, in your willingness to pay the ultimate price for the well-being of others you do not even know and demonstrated a strength and courage that even the great Galactus shall never possess. Norrin Radd, we can trust each other no more. Consider this world a parting gift.
The Silver Surfer: You will release me? I can go?
Galactus: You must go. And with you take the Power Cosmic. Not as my blessing, but as my curse. The power shall be like a brand, marking its bearer for all time. Let us see those for whom the Silver Surfer has been so willing to sacrifice... can never overcome their fear and hatred of you!
The Silver Surfer: Mighty Galactus, I shall prove you wrong about the people of the universe...
Galactus: GO! You are condemned!


"Silver Surfer: The Origin of the Silver Surfer: Part 2 (#1.2)" (1998)
[first lines]
The Silver Surfer: Space, my home. Was ever a man as lucky as I? Who, but the Silver Surfer, can soar the cosmic currents and be one with the many wonders of the galaxies. And yet even now I feel confused and uncertain. Where do I come from? Why do I serve?

The Silver Surfer: Do they not understand? Nothing can stand in my way. These beings know that it is impossible for them to prevail. And yet they fight on. Their struggle moves me in a way I do not understand... Yet I cannot allow it to sway me.

The Silver Surfer: Time after time I have born witness to wanderers forced from their homes. Yet never does the sight cease to be a bitter one.

The Silver Surfer: Master.
Galactus: My herald. Never have I fed as well as I have since you joined me.
The Silver Surfer: Master? Often have I wondered, when did I join you? And why?
Galactus: [chuckles] Always are you questioning. Always restless. And to think, once I foolishly thought that unlike myself lesser beings could be content.
The Silver Surfer: Do I amuse you, mighty Galactus?
Galactus: It is of no consequence. All that must concern you is that I obtain the energy I need. Now go my Silver Surfer. Soon, this planet will be drained, and the great hunger will be upon me once more!

The Silver Surfer: These growth cycles should take eons, not moments to occur. Truly this is a world of impossibilities. But my speculations are pointless. Soon, this world will be no more...

The Silver Surfer: In all my service with Galactus never have I beheld such as this...
Ego the Living Planet: I am Ego, the living planet. Stay with me, Silver Surfer, and I will give you all that you desire.
The Silver Surfer: Indeed. You are a unique and powerful being. But I cannot allow even you to prevail over my master's needs.

Ego the Living Planet: Silver Surfer, I am in your debt. The nova that brought your here was caused by that being. If I had not aided in your entrapment I would have perished like that star.
The Silver Surfer: Are you not afraid you will still perish when I summon Galactus?
Ego the Living Planet: I am not without resources, as you have seen. And with Thanos gone, my mobility has returned.
[moves off]

The Silver Surfer: Thanos. I will remember the name of one who is so evil, yet has given me so much to think about...

The Silver Surfer: So many memories. Yet as swiftly as they appear they did vanish into their prison inside my own mind. I must find Galactus. For now I know that my master has stolen my past, my life, my love. Galactus, there will be reckoning! I will regain my soul!

[last lines]
The Silver Surfer: GALACTUS!
Galactus: You have failed me, my herald. But I will let it go, this time. For now I am well pleased. I have found a world with more life energy than any I have encountered before.
[laughs]

The Silver Surfer: Where... where have you taken me?
Thanos: We have entered your mind. It... it is not as I expected. Youur whole life should be here. Your accomplishments, fears, failures! Instead there is emptiness, darkness, a void.
The Silver Surfer: My life is serving Galactus. I am nothing else.
Thanos: Serving Galactus? I have no interest in how to serve anyone! I want the secret of controlling your master!
The Silver Surfer: [laughs] Do you not understand? Galactus can never be controlled. If ever being, if ever power, came together for that very purpose still would they fail!
Thanos: He cannot be invincible. He is not a god. The answer is here! It must be here!


Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)
[to Doom]
The Silver Surfer: All that you know, is at an end.

Susan Storm: Guys, we have a problem! He's here!
Reed Richards: Sue, get out of there!
Susan Storm: Why are you trying to destroy us?
The Silver Surfer: I have no choice.
Susan Storm: There's always a choice.
The Silver Surfer: Not always!

The Silver Surfer: Treasure each moment with her and tell her she's right, we do have a choice.

The Silver Surfer: [flying into Galactus] I will no longer serve. This is the end for us both.

The Silver Surfer: [restrained in the lab] I know you are there.
Susan Storm: [appears] What's your name?
[the Surfer doesn't answer]
Susan Storm: Come on. You must have a name. I'm Susan.
[the Surfer still does not answer]
Susan Storm: You said you weren't the one trying to destroy our world. Then who is?
The Silver Surfer: The One I serve.
Susan Storm: Who do you serve?
[No response]
Susan Storm: Look, I'm trying to help you. But in order to do that, you have to tell me the truth. Please.
[the image of a ruined world appears on his stomach]
The Silver Surfer: It is known by many names. My people called it... Galactus, the devourer of worlds. It must feed on energy to survive, both thermal and organic.
Susan Storm: How could you willingly serve this thing?
The Silver Surfer: Because I must.
Susan Storm: Doesn't it bother you? All the worlds and innocent people you've helped destroy?
The Silver Surfer: My service spares my world, and the one I love.
Susan Storm: Why did you try to protect me?
The Silver Surfer: Because you remind me of her.

The Silver Surfer: My name was Norrin Radd.

Susan Storm: Why are you trying to destroy us?
The Silver Surfer: I am not the destroyer.


"The Super Hero Squad Show: Invader from the Dark Dimension! (#1.16)" (2009)
Silver Surfer: [about Iron Man] I can detect odd waves of cosmic darkness coming from our leader.
Thor: That explains the smell. Mayhap he hath a cosmic stomach ache from thine freaky cosmic food.
Silver Surfer: Sorry, Thor. My empanadas would be better if I had taste buds.

Dr. Strange: Say, we can call ourselves the Defenders.
Silver Surfer: Because we're defending. Whoa, that's deep.

Dr. Strange: Dr. Doom, I have a proposition for you. Since we helped your headquarters from Iron Menace, help us defeat him.
Dr. Doom: Really? What's in it for me?
Silver Surfer: I know. How about a plate of fungus and ragweed burgers? Yummy in the tummy.
Dr. Doom: I'll help only if you keep him from ever cooking again.

Dr. Strange: Who knows what dark powers Mordo will unleash if he senses defeat? We must be vigilant.
Hulk: We need battle cry.
Silver Surfer: The Hulkster's right. How about "Defenders, get, um, defensive"?
Valkyrie: 'Tis pretty lame.
Hulk: Hulk like. Hulk won't play without it.

Silver Surfer: This goes way beyond simple dissatisfaction with my cooking.


"Silver Surfer: Antibody (#1.8)" (1998)
The Silver Surfer: You serve Galactus? And you think that I, who have toiled for him and fought with him and suffered beyond measure because of him, would want to save the Devourer of Worlds?
Nova: As a matter of fact, I do.

The Silver Surfer: We have travelled to virtually the other end of the universe. How did you find me at such a distance?
Nova: I always find what I look for. Since I was a kid, anywhere I needed to be, bam! I've been there. That's why Galactus gave me your old job after just one interview.

Nova: Surfer, the best job I could get without a college degree is going right down the tubes, and I am responsible!
The Silver Surfer: Responsibility is not the issue now. A solution, is.

Nova: [gasps] Silverado, there's this weird looking bald guy staring at us from the middle of nowhere!
The Silver Surfer: The Watcher. His presence here shows that this is indeed a portentous event.


"The Super Hero Squad Show: The Final Battle! ('Nuff Said!) (#2.26)" (2011)
Wolverine: Your choice, bub. Sliced, diced, or julienned?
Dark Surfer: Actually, I ordered the soup. Soul stone!
[hits Wolverine with a beam of light]
Wolverine: I'm all touchy-feely! Filled with rainbows and unicorns. Crying at commercials.
Dark Surfer: Does somebody need a hug?
Wolverine: Being touchy-feely makes me angry!

Scarlet Witch: Listen. I know what it's like to be a villain. Except for the pool parties, it's a pretty bad gig. You were a hero once. Why don't you try being a hero again?
Dark Surfer: Nah. My new business cards just came in.

Thor: Fiend. I say thee goo. Open the hanger, here comes the plane.
Dark Surfer: Ugh. I hate strained peaches.
Thor: You'll eat it and like it.

Dark Surfer: So much animal emotions. As if a million fanboys suddenly saw an iconic character... redesigned!


"Silver Surfer: Second Foundation (#1.9)" (1998)
The Silver Surfer: Skrull fighting Skrull? Never did I believe I would be part of something like this!

The Silver Surfer: How ironic that I, who have been raised with a devotion to harmony and peace, am being called upon to save the fiercest savages who ever roamed trough space. And yet, can any man turn his back on another, and still call himself civilized?

The Silver Surfer: Nova, I will come back for you!
Nova: I'll bet you say that to all the girls...


"The Super Hero Squad Show: Fate of Destiny! (#2.14)" (2011)
Dark Surfer: Most definitely, the Dark Surfer rules.

Dark Surfer: I could leave you all like this, but everyone knows that just like act three always follows act two, something will come along to unfreeze you.

Dark Surfer: Add infinity to infinity, and I can scatter the six of you across time, space and reality. You'll be out of my universe forever!
[laughs evilly]


"The Super Hero Squad Show: Last Exit Before Doomsday! (#1.25)" (2010)
Iron Man: Now let me get this straight.
[hums the Super Hero Squad Show theme as he fiddles with a picture]
Ms. Marvel: This is no time for hanging pictures, Iron Man.
Silver Surfer: Like I said in the first act, the Earth will perish. We must evacuate.

Iron Man: [about Galactus] Wait a minute, this guy eats whole planets?
Silver Surfer: Of course not. He takes several bites and chews them thorougly.

Silver Surfer: Firelord! Terrax the Tamer!
Thing: Ok, now you're just making names up.


"Silver Surfer: Learning Curve: Part 2 (#1.6)" (1998)
The Silver Surfer: Mentor, you must persist. We are all so near to satisfying our greatest desires.
Mentor: After all Drax and I have gone through, nothing can stop me now!

The Silver Surfer: Have I come this far, only to strike a wall of stone?


"Fantastic Four: Doomsday (#2.13)" (1994)
Silver Surfer: Amongst the mightiest, the most imposingly savage of all Earth's creatures, I sit in peace. I dwell in safety. For food has been plentiful, and no longer do they hunger.
[looks at a lion]
Silver Surfer: Unlike the humans who call you "beast", there's no violence in your heart, no hint of avarice, no smoldering hate. Yet man, who has won dominion over all this world, is a stranger to peace, a prisoner caught in the net of his own nameless fear. And here stand I, hopelessly trapped in a world of madness, where reason is shunned while violence prevails.
[takes off on his board]
Silver Surfer: But no longer shall the Silver Surfer be part of man's insanity. Let humanity do what it will! As for me, I shall dwell amongst the beasts, or search for some semblance of freedom in the polluted skies of this mad, orbiting prison which men call Earth!

Silver Surfer: I have much to learn of the ways of human beings. It is true that you are slaves of greed and fear - and yet, there is a nobility in your hearts that cannot be denied. Perhaps one day I will understand.


"The Super Hero Squad Show: Mother of Doom! (#1.24)" (2010)
Silver Surfer: I do not trust our visitor. After all, the enemy of our friend's enemy is no friend of mine.
Iron Man: [glances at Chthon, who chuckles wickedly] I get what you mean, sort of.

Silver Surfer: Have I mentioned that I did not trust Chthon?
Iron Man: Not since the commercial.


"The Super Hero Squad Show: Soul Stone Picnic! (#2.24)" (2011)
Dark Surfer: [on cell phone with Dormammu] Hey dude, I got like, three episodes, tops, to destroy the universe.

Dark Surfer: [Dark Surfer has turned Thor into a frog] Tell me, is it easy being green?


"The Super Hero Squad Show: Oh, Brother! (#1.7)" (2010)
Silver Surfer: Banana peels! Coffee grimes, used toilet paper! Is that correct, Thor?
Thor: Mayhap thou should leave the trash-talking to me. Whatch Thor bring the hurt: zounds, knave, calls't you that a defence?

Thor: [adressing Sif] By Volstagg's jiggily girth, 'tis good to see you! Prey, what brings thee to Midgard?
Reptil: Better yet, what is Midgard?
Silver Surfer: I believe it is Earth. Or perhaps deoderant.


"The Super Hero Squad Show: When Strikes the Surfer! (#2.25)" (2011)
Dark Surfer: You know why I'm doing this?
Ms. Marvel: Because you were afraid I might break out on my own, now that I have Captain Marvel's cosmic powers?
Dark Surfer: You do know! And now I'm going to absorb that power.
Ms. Marvel: You'll regret it.
Dark Surfer: Right. That's what the Kree, the Skrulls, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Elders of the Universe and the Trans-Dimensional Space Pipefitters Union said. And you don't see them anymore. Do you?
[Ms. Marvel unleashes her cosmic power at Surfer, he absorbs her power]
Dark Surfer: Well, no regrets so far.

Dark Surfer: My old friends. I don't know whether to destroy you separately or all at once. So I'm going to do both.
[replicates himself into separate Soul Stone versions]
Dark Surfer: This is going to make the Big Bang look like a burp!
Iron Man: Come on, Squaddies. You know what to do. Uh, can I say it now?
Hulk, Wolverine, Scarlet Witch, Falcon, Thor: Say it!
Iron Man: All right, Super Hero Squad, to save the entire universe, it's time to Hero Up!


"Silver Surfer: Return to Zenn-La (#1.12)" (1998)
The Silver Surfer: Still is it dificult for me to accept that I'm back on Zenn-La.
Shalla-Bal: Do you want to test us, Norrin Radd? To make certain we are who we seem? I can tell you every moment you and I have spent together, since we were twelve and met at the Masters knee.

The Silver Surfer: What have I done? Ego is not evil, merely misguided. I must help the planet live!


"Silver Surfer: The Origin of the Silver Surfer: Part 1 (#1.1)" (1998)
The Silver Surfer: Master, I am ready to serve.
Galactus: Then go, my Silver Surfer. The space waves beckon. And the great hunger is upon me once more.
The Silver Surfer: To me, my board!

The Silver Surfer: [regards Zenn-La] What of this planet, Master?
Galactus: I gave a promise once to an honorable man. That planet is not for such as we.


"Silver Surfer: The End of Eternity (#1.13)" (1998)
The Silver Surfer: The universe needs me. I will not allow it to die!


"The Super Hero Squad Show: Hulk Talk Smack! (#1.4)" (2009)
Silver Surfer: Surfing on water. Truly an odd sensation.


"Silver Surfer: The Planet of Dr. Moreau (#1.4)" (1998)
The Silver Surfer: It is a basic precept of Zenn-La that even with the highest technology, simplicity is best.


"The Super Hero Squad Show: This Forest Green! (#1.10)" (2009)
Silver Surfer: You seem sad. Is it that clown?
Falcon: [sighs] I'm the weakest guy here, Surfer. Wolvie craters the pavement, then he walks it off. I get my feathers ruffled, and I almost don't make it.
Silver Surfer: Almost only counts in horseshoes and supernovas. Your speed factor is unparalled.
Falcon: Quicksilver's faster.
Silver Surfer: After Quicksilver though.
Falcon: Whizzer, Maccari, Northstar...


"The Super Hero Squad Show: Deadly Is the Black Widow's Bite! (#1.13)" (2009)
Hulk: [notices Thor, Falcon and Iron Man looking romantically at Black Widow] Hey, why everybody looking at girl like that?
Silver Surfer: My comrades behave like they've never seen a female of their species.
Black Widow: I'm used to it, darling. Happens all the time. I suppose it is something like, how you say, my super power.


"The Super Hero Squad Show: Alienating with the Surfer! (#2.8)" (2011)
Ronan the Accuser: Your little disintegrator sword is useless against my Universal Weapon.
Silver Surfer: Do not talk smack about my Infinity Sword, it is superior!


"The Super Hero Squad Show: Stranger from a Savage Land! (#1.18)" (2009)
Silver Surfer: Iron Man, I got your secret text message. Is this the fleeing suspect you would like me to intercept?
Iron Man: Nice secrecy, Surfer. I was kinda hoping to surprise him.


"Silver Surfer: Learning Curve: Part 1 (#1.5)" (1998)
The Silver Surfer: I have been apart of too much tragedy, Pip, to turn away from what may be another's plight.
Pip de Troll: Just my luck: out on the town with an interstellar Samaritan.


"Fantastic Four: The Silver Surfer & the Coming of Galactus: Part 2 (#1.6)" (1994)

Dark Surfer: [sighs] I just told you. Not my fault you weren't listening.


"Silver Surfer: Radical Justice (#1.10)" (1998)
The Silver Surfer: How can I ask you to forgive me, when I cannot forgive myself?


"The Super Hero Squad Show: O, Captain, My Captain! (#1.11)" (2009)
Silver Surfer: [tangled up in elastic straps] Wolverine, I am having much difficulty wearing these suspenders!
Wolverine: Maybe it's 'cause that takes pants...
Silver Surfer: Pants! That is it!
[begins panting heavily like a dog]
Silver Surfer: I feel them working already!


"Silver Surfer: The Forever War (#1.11)" (1998)
Adam Warlock: Which side are you on, Kree or freedom?
The Silver Surfer: I am the Silver Surfer and I am not here to fight. This is not my battle.
Adam Warlock: Look around you, doesn't it make your blood pound? They are all our battles!
