Quotes

Vegeta: Amazing. How do you do it Kakarot? You've always been like this, ever since the day I first met you, always ready to meet the next challenge, even if it's bigger than you are. "So, we meet at last. We have been expecting you, Kakarot. We were beginning to think you wouldn't show. Hopefully, now things will get more interesting around here." "How can this be happening? I am a super-elite... the prince of all Saiyans. and he is just a low-level, a common soldier. I am one of the greatest fighters in the universe!" It was the same on Namek. You have improved so much that it would make Recoome like you were standing still. Your power had increase so dramatically since our battle on Earth that I thought you have done it. I thought... that you have become a Super-Saiyan. It tore me apart. How could a low-class soldier accomplish so easily what I... I had struggle my whole life to achive? After 3 millennia, it is finally happened; A new Super-Saiyin has emerged, and somehow, I have become this popish witness. Then at last it happened. I too transformed. After living every moment of every day for the single purpose of surpassing you, I finally became a Super-Saiyin myself. The prince have reclaim his throne and fulfilled his destiny. But no matter how strong I became, your power still exceeded mine. At first I thought it was your loved ones, than it was your instinct to protect them that spired you on, and pushed you beyond your limits. But then I found myself with a family of my own, and my power... didn't increase at all. I used to fight for the shear of pleasure, for the thrill of the hunt, all I had the strength unmetered, I spared no one. And yet you showed mercy to every one, even your fiercest enemies, even me... Yet you never thought to kill, more for revenge. Only to test your limits, and to push us beyond them, to become the strongest you could possibly be. How can a Saiyin fight like that, and at the same time be so gentle that he wouldn't hurt a fly? It makes me angry just thinking about it. But perhaps it is my anger that has made me blind to the truth for so long. I see it now. this day has made it all too clear. Your better than me, Kakarot. You are the Best...

Vegeta: You can take control of my mind and my body, but there is one thing a Saiyan always keep... his PRIDE!

Vegeta: There's only one certainty in life. A strong man stands above and conquers all!

Goku: I would rather be a brainless monkey than a heartless monster. (To Frieza)

Dende: Eternal Dragon, by your name, I summon you forth, Shenron.

Vegeta: This doesn't concern you! This is between me and your circus clown of a father!

Goku: Circus clown. That's a new one.

[Frieza has just pulled Nail's arm off]

Frieza: Maybe you can use it as a backscratcher! Ha ha ha! A backscratcher! Where do I come up with this stuff?"

Goku: It looks like they only want me, and that's exactly who they'll get.

Frieza: There're three things I refuse to tolerate: cowardice, bad haircuts, and millitary insurrection.

Frieza: [Approaches Guru's tower] Hello, anybody home?

Nail: Yes, I'm here. Hello, friend.

Frieza: Thank you very much. I'm a visitor touring your lovely planet and I happened to come across seven Dragonballs. A man at a gift shop told me about the legend behind the balls. You know, the wish. But you need a password to activate them. Would you happen to know the password, my good man?

Nail: Not me. You should check with the chamber of commerce. They have that sort of information.

Frieza: The chamber is dead, my good man, and so are you if you don't tell me that password!

Vegeta: Let me ask you. Does a machine like yourself ever experience fear.

Vegeta: Kakarot, you're quite impressive. I never stood a chance against Buu, you're the only one who can fight him. I think I finally understand how a genius like myself can't surpass you. I thought it was because you had something to protect. I thought your drive to protect allowed you to take advantage of your capabilities... this may have been a reason, but not I too have this drive. I fought to do as I wished, because it was fun to kill my enemies and feed my pride. But he's different, he fights not to win but because he absolutely won't lose, causing him to break his limits and he really doesn't care who his opponent is. So when he didn't kill me, it was because he saw I could care for others, like I do now... Go Kakarot, you're number one!

Vegeta: Whenever the journalists show up, I'll just destroy them.

Bulma: Vegeta, behave yourself!

Vegeta: Fine.

Vegeta: ~evil laugh~... And then there was one...

Nappa: [shouts] You low-class peasant fool! I'm the second strongest Saiyan from the planet Vegeta!

Goku: Well, if your friend over there is stronger than you, I guess you're the third-strongest Saiyan now!

Majin Buu: [Super Buu] So, hotshot, you want to fight Majin Buu?

Gohan: [smirking] Fight you? No. I want to kill you.

Gohan: [gets into a fighting stance] Now I'll show you why my little brother looks up to me.

Majin Buu: [gets into his own stance, having absorbed Piccolo and Gotenks earlier] He doesn't. In fact, he wonders why you let me absorb him.

Videl: You know those people?

Gohan: Yeah. That man, wearing the orange uniform, he's my dad.

Videl: WHAT? I thought your dad was with another woman.

Gohan: Oh no! Just dead. Didn't you see that ring floating over his head?

Videl: I think I need to lie down.

[after scanning the power levels of 3 Namek warriors]

Frieza: You have the power levels of a Boy Scout troop!

[Before Vegeta's final fight with Majin Buu]

Vegeta: There is one thing I'd like to know. Tell me, will I meet that clown Kakarot in the other world?

Piccolo: I'm not going to lie to you, Vegeta, although the answer may be difficult for you to hear. This is the truth. Goku devoted his life to protecting the lives of other. Because of his selflessness, when he died, he was allowed to keep his body and travel to King Kai's Planet. You, on the other hand, have spent your life in pursuit of your own selfish desires. You've caused too much pain. When you die, you will not receive the same reward.

Vegeta: Oh well, so be it. That will be all, get out of here and hurry!
