Dragon Ball: The Magic Begins (1991)
Yamcha: That was dirty! You fight dirty! You're no gentleman!
Turtle Man: Oooooh, but you're a sneaky little thief! You want to steal my magic cloud! You asked for this!

Yamcha: Someone told me your kung-fu is very nice... and he wants to challenge you! If he beats you, then he'll be famous!
Turtle Man: So someone wants to challenge me... Who is he? Tell me, who is he?
Yamcha: He'll be here very soon...
[points at a boat carrying Monkey Boy, Seetou, Jen-Jen and Piggy]
Turtle Man: Oh? He's coming now? Okay, I'll show him!

[Turtle Man goggles Seetou]
Turtle Man: [drooling] Oh, my... you're beautiful... curves in the right places... what a beautiful figure! Oh, my whole body's itching, I'm itchy, well, here, and itchy there...
[starts scratching himself]
Turtle Man: I'm itching all over for you!

[Roshi summons the Nimbus]
Son Goku: What is that?
Yamcha: You're stupid!
Son Goku: You know, do you?
Yamcha: It's his magic cloud!
Turtle Man: Right! I captured this cloud many, many centuries ago, and I imbued it with magic powers and turned it into my private car! And the magic cloud has one specialty: people who are dishonest and have an impure mind, will never be able to get on it!
Bulma: So then, you can sit on it?
Turtle Man: ME?... Of course I can! I'll show you now!
[jumps on the Nimbus]
Turtle Man: See that? I'm an honest man! My mind is pure too! That's why I'm able to get on this cloud! Right, go! Move it! Fly!
[the Nimbus throws him off]
Turtle Man: Goddamn you lazybones, how dare you make a fool out of me in front of a pretty girl!

Turtle Man: So what do you think of my magic cloud, then?
Son Goku: Not bad! It's obedient!
Turtle Man: Hmmmm. But it's not obedient with me, though... You lazybones, you're no good! Ah, you're no use! I'll give you away, to HIM!

Turtle Man: You have a Dragon Pearl?
Bulma: Yes, I have a Five-Star Pearl!
Son Goku: My granddad had one too, but the baddies stole it from him!
Pansy: My home had one too, and the baddies stole it from us!
Bulma: Now these baddies have three Pearls, and they're trying to find the other four Pearls! We heard that your kung-fu was good, and we came to ask you to help us stop the evil monsters!
Pansy: [goes on her knees] They destroyed our village! Master, please help us stop these evil people!
Turtle Man: Get up, there's no need for that! Don't you worry! That monster may have three Pearls, but they're no good unless you get all seven of them together, you know that? And without me, he'll never be able to achieve what he wants!
Bulma: Why's that?
Turtle Man: Because I have in my possession a Two-Star Dragon Pearl! Without it, how can he get what he wants, eh?
[presents it]

[Westwood tries to escape]
Turtle Man: Westwood, without my permission, you can't leave this island no matter how hard you try!

[Westwood hands over his Pearl]
Bulma: A Six-Star Pearl. Oh, thank you!
[Seetou kisses Westwood, who falls over in shock]
Turtle Man: Aah, what a useless boy! Useless youngsters! I would give my life, to have a girl kiss me!

Turtle Man: [cackles] My pretty little lady, do you want to have this Dragon Pearl?
[holds out his own Pearl]
Bulma: If you're willing to part with it, of course I'll take it!
Turtle Man: I'm gonna let you have it, but... uh... you have to do something for it!
Bulma: So what do you want?
Turtle Man: I've been living on this remote island for all my life, and I've never seen a girl as pretty as you! So I... so I... well... I want... I want to see you without any clothes on!
Oolong: How dare you, you dirty old man! How can you think of something as low as that?
Son Goku: Master, that's too much!
Turtle Man: Hey, kid, sex is human nature!

Son Goku: Magic cloud, you can go home now! When I need you I'll call you, okay?
[the Nimbus dissipates into OK letters and vanishes]
Turtle Man: Goddamn you! Goddamn you, son of a jerkball! I've treated you for so many years! When I served you, I had to toss for hours to please you! But now you jump when he tells you to jump and fly when he tells you to fly, you jerk? Why do you treat me like this? You got that, fouled-up bitch?

Son Goku: Why didn't you tell us you had a Pearl?
Oolong: My teacher told me not to tell anyone!
Turtle Man: Where is your teacher?
Oolong: Oh, he's very famous! Everybody knows him, including every dog, and even every cat, because...
Turtle Man: [knocks his head] Just say it!
Oolong: The Pig Fairy! My teacher said if I showed the Pearl, people would steal it! He said I must find you guys! That's why I used Jade to meet up with you! I think, now the time is right, so I showed the Pearl to you!

King Horn: Give me the Pearl if you wish to stay alive!
Turtle Man: Come and get it, if you can!

King Horn: Give me the Pearl, or I'll kill him!
Son Gohan: Don't give it to him, if you do we all die! Go!
Son Goku: Master, please give him the Pearl, or he'll kill Grandpa! Please!
Turtle Man: But your grandpa's right, if I give him the Dragon Pearl we'll all die anyway!

Son Gohan: [about King Horn's Dragon Pearls] I suspect they're inside his stomach...
Turtle Man: Hmm...
Son Gohan: Turtle Man, are you thinking of getting that Dragon Pearl inside his stomach, too?
Turtle Man: Right! When the seven Pearls mix, he'll explode!

Turtle Man: Magic cloud!
[the Nimbus appears in the sky and Roshi leaps on it]
Turtle Man: [jumps on the cloud] Magic cloud, now I order you to take me to the four corners of the world and find me pretty girls! Hah! Come on!... Hey, lazybones, don't wanna move, do ya? GO!
[the Nimbus takes off... sweeping the Turtle Man out from under it]
Turtle Man: You idiot! I'll get you for this!

Turtle Man: But then, why'd Westwood tell me one of you wanted to fight me?
Son Goku, Bulma, Oolong, Pansy: WESTWOOD?

[Piggy disguises himself as Seetou]
Oolong: Darling...
Turtle Man: So, have you made a decision yet?
Oolong: [seductively] Oh, yes I have...
Turtle Man: Oh...?
Oolong: Come here!
[Roshi lets out a whoop and starts to dance with Seetou]

Turtle Man: JESUS! How dare you blow up my house like that!

[a turtle shell is seen floating on the water]
Pansy: Master!
Bulma: Master!
Oolong: Master, you're still alive!
Turtle Man: [wading out of the ocean, half-naked] Are you kidding? Nobody can get rid of ME that easily!... But still, my house is destroyed, and my Dragon Pearl stolen! These people will not get away with this!

Son Goku: Westwood, why are you following us?
Yamcha: Don't forget, one of those Dragon Pearls you lost belonged to me in the first place. I have a right to look for it too, you know!
Turtle Man: Good! You're welcome to join our group!

Turtle Man: So, then, every one of us here all have a relationship with a Dragon Pearl, is that right?
[everyone agrees]
Son Goku: [to Piggy] Hey, you don't!
Oolong: Uh... you're right! I don't have a Dragon Pearl, I've no relationship with it...

Turtle Man: Now we own the last Pearl that monster needs... let's go get him!

Turtle Man: Turtle shot!

Goku: We'll go...
[looking at Roshi]

Bulma: Yeah, it's called staying alive!
Master Roshi: Quick, grab the bomb and throw it out of the house!
Launch: Why is there a clock on the floor?
Bulma: That's no clock, it's a highly explosive bomb!
Launch: [holding the bomb] This house was spick and span when I left it. I don't appreciate things being left out.

Master Roshi: Who are you?
General Blue: [laughs] Someone you should fear, old man!
Master Roshi: You're not scary. You're sick!
General Blue: On the contrary. I've never felt better.

Krillin: I understand you're upset, but there's one thing you must know: I love you!
Bulma: [hits him on the head] Ugh!
Master Roshi: [holds his bloody nose] Boy, you've got some nerve for pulling a stunt like that!
Krillin: [in guilt] Forgive me, master, I was just only trying to help Yamcha.

Master Roshi: And I loved every minute of it.

Puar: No more fighting sounds fine with me.

Master Roshi: [thinking to himself] I knew there was something fishy about this...
[looks at the mermaid's skimpy top]
Master Roshi: [thinking] I guess i can still try with her human half...
Master Roshi: Well, I'm like a turtle and you're part fish, so what do you say you and me go inside and learn more about our species?
[smack! the mermaid hits him and dives into the water]

Mrs. Briefs: Now wasn't there a martial arts tournament a long time ago?

Oolong: Oh, you just had to get him started.

Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' (2015)
[English dub, After Frieza destroyed the earth]
Master Roshi: No. How could anyone be that evil?

Piccolo: No. That heartless tyrant. He couldn't just die, he took the whole planet with him.

Tien: It's not fair. He took everything.
Master Roshi: The Dragon Balls were destroyed as well, so we can't even summon Shenron. There's no way we can reverse when Frieza's done.

Goku: That do-over thing?
Whis: "Temperol Do-over." You actually paid attention for once.

Master Roshi: That's not true!

Chichi: You think I would allow something so perverse?
[throws Master Roshi out]

"Dragon Ball: The Legend of a Dragon (#2.5)" (2002)
Master Roshi: The legend, as I was told, goes something like this: In the beginning, there was only one Dragon Ball. It was huge, I mean REALLY huge. It had to be - it held all of the mystical energies of the universe. An ancient tribe discovered it, and was inspired by its magnificent power. They built a shrine around it, and protected the orb by placing it in the mouth of a giant dragon statue, said to be its eternal guardian. You should have seen the detail on this thing. It was INCREDIBLE: scales made of ruby, teeth of pearl... Speaking of pearl, they say there was this one native girl...
Master Roshi: Yes, well... The tribe enjoyed years of prosperity, until one day: evil paid a visit to the village in the form of a band of thieves. These agents of darkness stormed the temple in an attempt to steal the Dragon Ball for their own selfish gain. They were shocked to discover the true power of the Ball. To ensure such an attack never happened again, the Dragon Ball was divided into seven smaller orbs, and scattered across the globe. Separately, the Dragon Balls were useless, but when all seven were united, then a single voice could summon the Eternal Dragon for one wish, and one wish only. Some wishes were pure, but others were tainted by blind ambition. This led to pain and suffering, as an unjust few wished for power and dominion over mankind. But, as the story goes, there will one day come a hero who will use the Dragon Balls for goodness, and bring peace and unity to the world once more.

Master Roshi: Yup. That's right.
Krillin: What in the world was he thinking?
Bulma: He's obviously not thinking!
Oolong: You can say that again.

Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest (1990)
Master Roshi: You know there's one thing I did like about Dr. Wheelo... He thought I was the strongest fighter in the world.
