Klytus: Yes, you don't look well. I'm told you refused your final meal. The chef will be upset.
Flash Gordon: Tell 'em to go to hell!
Klytus: Maybe just as well. Gas works more quickly on an empty stomach. Any final requests?
Flash Gordon: Yes, let me see Dale. Right away.
Klytus: Oh, dear. How pathetic. Yes, I anticipated that.

Flash Gordon: This isn't happening, Dale. We're not here. It's just a bad dream.

Flash Gordon: Biro's hit! I'm going in after him!

[Hawkman Biro has been injured during the attack on war rocket Ajax]
Flash Gordon: Biro! You alright?

Prince Vultan: [Flash is going to suicide ram Ming's palace, Vultan turns to Flash] That must be one hell of a planet you men come from!
Flash Gordon: Not too bad.

Flash Gordon: Bail out, Vultan, before it's too late!
Prince Vultan: Flash,
[runs back to Flash]
Prince Vultan: are you crazy?
Flash Gordon: The fire's too heavy!
Flash Gordon: You know we'll never make that opening with nobody at the wheel!
Prince Vultan: Come on! You'll be blown to pieces, Flash! It's suicide!
Flash Gordon: No, a rational transaction! One life for billions!
Prince Vultan: [Vultan grabs Flash's shoulders and shouts] Come on! You'll be destroyed!
Flash Gordon: [shouts] You loony bird!
[Pushes Vultan away]
Flash Gordon: Get outta here! They need you on the ground!
Prince Vultan: [Vultan holds out his right hand] Well, good bye, Flash! It's been...!
Flash Gordon: [Flash shakes Vultan's hand] I know! For me too, Vultan!
Flash Gordon: [Vultan heads back to the ladder and starts climbing] Tell Dale

Prince Vultan: [shouts] That must be one hell of a planet you men come from!
Flash Gordon: Not too bad!

Flash Gordon: My God!
Dale Arden: What is this, a civic reception?
Flash Gordon: More like a police state.
Dr. Hans Zarkov: If it is, that could be our good luck.

Dr. Hans Zarkov: It means we'll find allies on every side. Look at them, the poor wretches are just waiting for someone to lead them in revolt.
Flash Gordon: Are you looking at me, Zarkov?
Dr. Hans Zarkov: Yes.
Dale Arden: Please, stop talking about revolts, I just want to get back home alive.

Klytus: The tributes of the Hawkmen will be first.
Dale Arden: Are we dreaming?

Prince Barin: Vultan stole it while we were burying our dead on Frigia
Prince Vultan: Liar!
Prince Barin: You are a thief!
Prince Vultan: What?
Prince Vultan: [Prince Barin draws his sword, preparing to attack Vultan]
[Vultan raises his clubbed sword]

Prince Vultan: Aargh!
Klytus: Vultan! You obey, or you sacrifice your daughter.

Zarkov: You may do so.

Dale Arden: What kind of a place is this, Flash?
Flash Gordon: Savage! It's like Earth... during prehistoric times.

Princess Aura: Are all Earth men like you?
Flash Gordon: [defiant] Most of them.

Flash Gordon: Thun, what will happen to us?
Thun: If we are lucky, a chance to fight in the Tournament of Death. But that isn't likely. Ming the Merciless will have other plans.

Flash Gordon: You can't get away with this!
Ming the Merciless: If your strength is as great as your insolence, you may survive a while... in the mines. You will be chained with Thun. Earthman and mutant of Mongo!
[laughs evilly]

Princess Aura: To a thousand other tunnels.

Flash Gordon: Ming's personality may not be magnetic, but his hideout sure is.

[evil laughter]
Flash Gordon: Great. Maybe when we're dust, we can get stuck in Ming's eye.

Thun: We've got to get back to normal size.
Flash Gordon: Outside of my Aunt Evelyn's cooking, I don't know any way to get big quickly.

Flash Gordon: It takes a magnet to catch a metal man.

Princess Aura: You surprise me, Earth man... and please me too.
Dale Arden: Now there's a designing woman - and her designs are all for you!

Thun: Every race on Mongo is an enemy to every other race.
Prince Barin: Each man stands alone on Mongo, as you'll learn - if you survive, Earth man.

Flash Gordon: That other truck, where does it go?
Prince Barin: To the devil. It leads eventually to Ming's palace.
Flash Gordon: Heh. If we've got to go, why not go in style?

Flash Gordon: A true prince does not run from danger.
Prince Barin: You owe me satisfaction for that insult, Earth man!
Flash Gordon: Pick your time, Prince Barin. Right now we've got more pressing matters.

Aura: Is that any way to greet a girl who's come all the way from another dimension to see you?

[Flash and Aura are making out]
Steven 'Flash' Gordon: No, wait, wait. We can't do this. You're engaged.
Aura: But I'm not yet bonded.
Steven 'Flash' Gordon: Right. What happens on Earth stays on Earth.

Steven 'Flash' Gordon: Look, you can't be here, alright? I'm tired of getting shot at, tortured and nearly killed because of you.
Aura: I thought you liked me.
Steven 'Flash' Gordon: Trouble has a way of finding you and it's usually carrying a ray-gun.

Aura: My father doesn't care what happens to me. I won't even look him in the eye anymore, I can't stand him!

Prince Barin: There is a way out from here, but it's more dangerous than you know.
Flash Gordon: It can't be any worse than what we've seen, and it seems to me we haven't much choice.
King Vultan: Flash is right!
Prince Barin: As usual.
[walks off]
Prince Barin: I warned you!

Flash Gordon: I don't understand what's wrong with Barin.
Dale Arden: I do. He's jealous of you.
Flash Gordon: That's crazy! Barin's the finest, strongest, brightest man I ever knew.
Dale Arden: He thinks Princess Aura loves you.
[Zarkov nods in agreement]
Flash Gordon: But that's ridiculous. I don't love her, and if she has any feeling for me, well, it can only be infatuation.

Flash Gordon: We'll be with you, fast as this tin frying pan can travel.

Flash Gordon: Well, I'm Flash... of the Gordons.

Dr. Hans Zarkov: I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is I may have got the rift blaster working again, all we need now is a rift to test it on.
Flash Gordon: The bad news?
Dr. Hans Zarkov: We have a rift to test it on.

Flash Gordon: Hey, what'd I say? Think positively.
Dr. Hans Zarkov: Yeah, in the meantime I'll just try to forget the fact that I could be attacked by an interdimensional assassin at any moment.

Dale Arden: The game? Arena? What was that guy talking about?
Flash Gordon: I hope the Super Bowl!

Prince Barin: Redesigning this hover-tank with a Corbonite disk was smart thinking, Flash.

Flash Gordon: After the Corbonite Ray, the only thing left to throw at that creature is the kitchen sink!

"Flash Gordon: Revolution: Part 2 (#1.21)" (2008)
Steven 'Flash' Gordon: You're not worth me killing.
Ming: I find no honor in being spared by a coward.

Steven 'Flash' Gordon: You don't get to decide anymore. It's over!
Ming: No, not while I breathe! This is my planet to shape in my own image!
Steven 'Flash' Gordon: You're right about that. All the hatred and brutality that you've created is flooding back and you're gonna drown in it.

Ming: Get off my planet!

Flash Gordon: Nope. But Arboria's due West of Ming's Capital City and, we're somewhere South of that. At least we're on the right side of the river.

Dale Arden: Flash, what are they going to do to us?
Flash Gordon: Whatever they have in mind, I don't think we're going to like it.

Dr. Hans Zarkov: [while climbing Ming's giant statue] Never could stand hights...
Flash Gordon: So much for the theory of evolution. Sure thing you couldn't be descended from tree-swingers.

Dale Arden: Oh, those horrible things. I thought I was lost.

Flash Gordon: All we need now is the monster of the mines!
Princess Aura: How could you know of Teesack?
Flash Gordon: Hey look, I was just trying to be funny.
Thun: There's nothing funny about Teesack.

Prince Barin: [laughs] We meet again, Aura. And I gave you fair warning to never cross my path again, Earthling.
Flash Gordon: [struggling with the vines of by a Constrictor plant] If I had known you'd use these funny... little plants to do your dirty work I... might have tried harder to avoid you, Barin.
Prince Barin: I need nothing to do my work, man or plant.

Flash Gordon: I love tapes about the old west. cowboys, indians. It was a rugged time to live. It was a time when men were men, and horses were horses. Depending on how many legs you had.

Prince Barin: How soon can you be airborne?
Flash Gordon: In about three shakes of a dragon's tail. Right, Gremlin?

Flash Gordon: Ninja, 'hopeless' is not part of my vocabulary.

Flash Gordon: Thun, are you ok?
Thun: Good and angry!

"Flash Gordon: Chapter Thirteen: Castaways in Tropica (#1.13)" (1979)
Dr. Hans Zarkov: We are out of fuel. But, that's impossible.
Flash Gordon: Not if one of those lasers of Ming's scored a hit when we were making our exit.
Dale Arden: I eh, think we passed the last service station a few miles back.

Flash Gordon: [to Dale and Dr. Zarkov] You two start tying draperies, whatever you can find, into a rope.
Dale Arden: What about you?
Flash Gordon: [about to leave via the balcony] Oh, I'm going to rescue a Queen.

Dr. Hans Zarkov: Strange, if I didn't know better, I'd swear this water was running up hill.
Flash Gordon: Even for Mongo that would be strange!

Queen Desira: Rock Termites! They're impossible to stop. They eat anything in their path, even solid rock.
Flash Gordon: Lets hope they're bad swimmers. Into the water, everyone.

Flash Gordon: Don't be scared.
Dale Arden: With you, Flash? Never.

Dale Arden: I'm afraid we're at the end of our rope. We've run out of trees.

Flash Gordon: I didn't know you had a heart.

Flash Gordon: Gift or no gift, I wouldn't trust Ming as far as I could throw the planet Pluto.

Flash Gordon: So much for the computerized Ming. Even his memory bank was a sore loser!

Morlag: Are we having fun yet?
Flash Gordon: We will in a minute. Hold onto your scales. There's a place down in the moon I once used for piloting practice. Corkscrew Canyon.

Morlag: [Flash weaves through the canyon causing Ming's chasing ships to explode against its walls] Can I look now?

Dale Arden: [after landing in the north polar region of Mongo] I'm glad our clothes are insulated.
Flash Gordon: Yeah, this isn't exactly Palm Springs.

Dale Arden: Of course not, you grow your own fur coat.

Dale Arden: That little man, Professor Jellis, was able to topple over that huge idol? How? Where did he get the strength?
Flash Gordon: Sometimes a man finds strength within himself he didn't know was there. Professor Jellis saw his chance and found the power to balance his books.
Dr. Hans Zarkov: With a little to spare.

Queen Fria: What?
Flash Gordon: Sorry. It's an inside joke.

Queen Fria: Your Earth must be a wondrous planet to have produced such a man as yourself. I like you, Flash Gordon.
Flash Gordon: I like you too, Fria.
Queen Fria: I know the Earth woman Dale Arden means much to you, but... if the time should ever come, there will also be a place for you in Frigia. Near the throne...

Flash Gordon: A way out of here. And I know how to get it.
Dale Arden: I'll bet it's got something to do with Azura.

Queen Azura: Gor-Don, you live!

Flash Gordon: They had someone with them?
Baylin: Yes, they took someone.
Flash Gordon: They took someone?

Rankol: Not so, however. The tendons behind the eye, those are some of the most sensitive in the entire human body.
