"You know who I am, yes?" "You're Drax, The Destroyer." "And you know why they call me this." "You slayed dozens of Ronan's minions." "Ronan murdered my wife, Hovat, and my daughter, Kamaria. He slaughtered them where they stood. And he laughed! Her life is not yours to take. He killed my family, I shall kill one of his in return."
"I just wanted to tell you how grateful I am that you've accepted me despite my blunders. It is good to once again be among friends. You, Quill, are my friend. Thanks. This dumb tree is also my friend.[Groot grunts] And this green whore is also... Oh, you must stop!"
"There are two types of beings in the universe. Those who dance, and those who do not." "I get it, yes. I'm a dancer, Gamora is not." "You just need to find a woman who is pathetic, like you." "Thanks, buddy."
"How did you get to this weird dumb planet?" "Ego found me in a larva state. Orphaned on my home world. He raised me by hand and kept me as his own." "So you're a pet?" "I suppose." "People usually want cute pets. Why would he go on such a hideous one?" "I am hideous?" "You are horrifying to look at. But that's a good thing." "Oh?" "When you're ugly and someone loves you, you know they love you for who you are. Beautiful people never know who to trust." "Well, then I am certainly grateful to be ugly!" "Those pools, they remind me of when I took my daughter to the forgotten reaches of my homeworld. She was like you." "Disgusting?" "Innocent"
"I first met my beloved at a war rally, everyone in the village flailed about dancing except one woman, my Hovat. I knew immediately she was the one for me. The most melodic song in the world could be playing, she wouldn't even tap her foot, wouldn't move a muscle, one might assume she was dead. "That does sound pretty hot."
