QUOTES FROM Zoe Saldana CHARACTERS

Gamora says: I have lived most my life surrounded by my enemies. I would be grateful to die among my friends.

Gamora says: No! I know what you're trying to do, Star-Lord! And I am not going to succumb to your... pelvic sorcery!

Gamora says: I know who you are Peter Quill, and I am not some starry-eyed waif here to succumb to your... your... pelvic sorcery.

Gamora says: What do you do with it?

Peter Quill/Star-Lord says: Do? Nothing. You listen to it. Or you dance.

Gamora says: I'm a warrior and an assassin. I do not dance.

Peter Quill/Star-Lord says: Really? Well on my planet, there's a legend about people like you. It's called... Footloose. And in it, a great hero, named Kevin Bacon, teaches an entire city full of people with sticks up their butts that dancing, is the greatest thing there is.

Gamora says: Who put the sticks up their butts?

Gamora says: Who put sticks in their butts? That's just cruel.

Gamora says: And by the way...your ship is filthy.

Peter Quill/Star-Lord says: Filthy? She has no idea. If we had a blacklight, it would look like a Jackson Pollock painting.

Gamora says: Who put sticks in their butts? That just seems cruel.

Gamora says: Quill, your ship is filthy.
