Quotes from John C. Reilly's Characters

    • Drax the Destroyer:
      What if someone does something that irks me and I decide to remove his spine?
    • Rhomann Dey:
      That's... that's actually... murder. One of the worst crimes of all, so... also illegal.
    • Drax the Destroyer:
      Hmm.

    • Rhomann Dey:
      Your criminal records have also been expunged. However, I have to warn you against breaking any laws in the future.
    • Rocket Raccoon:
      Question. What if I see something that I wanna take and it belongs to someone else?
    • Rhomann Dey:
      Then you will be arrested.
    • Rocket Raccoon:
      But what if I want it more than the person who has it?
    • Rhomann Dey:
      Still illegal.
    • Rocket Raccoon:
      That doesn't follow. No, I want it more, sir. Do you understand me? What are you laughing at? What? I can't have a discussion with this gentleman?
