    Dialogue between groups of characters

  • Flash: Are you OK?
    Bero: Yeah, they just winged me. Thanks to Keith H. Patton

  • Slave: Drink this.
    Dale: What is it?
    Slave: It has no name. Many brave men died to bring it here from the Galaxy of Pleasure.
    It'll make your nights with Ming more agreeable.
    Dale: Will it make me forget?
    Slave: No, but it will make you not mind remembering. Thanks to Rob
  • Guard: General Kala, Flash Gordon approaching.
    Kala: What do you mean, "Flash Gordon approaching?"
    Guard: On a hawkman rocket cycle. Shall I inform His Majesty?
    Kala: Idiot! The Emperor would shoot you for interrupting his wedding!
    Fire when Gordon's in range! Thanks to Tom Bell
  • Vultan: That must be one hell of a planet you men come from.
    Flash: Not half bad. Thanks to Adam Shaw
  • Flash: I demand to see the governor! I can hardly breath in this thing!
    Klytus: Yes, you don't look well. And I'm told you refused your final meal.
    The chef will be upset.
    Flash: Tell him to go to hell.
    Klytus: Maybe just as well, gas works more quickly on an empty stomach. Any final request?
  • Priest: Do you, Ming the Merciless, ruler of the universe,
    take this earthling, Dale Arden, to be your empress of the hour?
    Ming: Of the hour? Yes.
    Priest: Do you promise to use her as you will?
    Ming: Certainly!
    Priest: Not to blast her into space? ... Until such time as you grow weary of her?
    Ming: I do.
    Dale: I do not! Thanks to Gabriel Salgado
  • Klytus: Come forward, Barin.
    Barin: Address me as Prince Barin.
    Klytus: No longer. Princess Aura, under our persuasion, has implicated you on a charge of high treason. You're under arrest! A prison ship will be here shortly to take you away.
    Barin: You tortured Aura.
    Klytus: An interesting girl. I think she found it rather enjoyable. Thanks to Joseph E Sumrall
  • Dale: What happened?
    Flash: I don't know, but it was pretty sensational.

    Flash: Maybe I'll show you sometime.

    Flash: Up the creek. Thanks to Zuzanny
  • Flash: Any problems fellas?
    Pilot 1: A bit of clear air turbulence. Nothing serious.
    Pilot 2: But nothing you'd want to toss a third down pass through, either.
    Would you like to autograph this for my kid, Mr. Gordon?
    Flash: Glad to. What's his name?
    Pilot 2: Buzz.
  • Flash: This Ming's a psycho.
    Orb: This Ming is a psycho.
    Ming: Who said that?
    Orb: The fair-haired prisoner.
