After learning that he is from another planet, a warrior named Goku and his friends are prompted to defend it from an onslaught of extraterrestrial enemies.
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...
Nappa: Vegeta, what does the scouter say about his power level? Vegeta: It's over NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAAND!
Vegeta: You can take control of my mind and my body, but there is one thing a Saiyan always keep... his PRIDE!
Goku: I would rather be a brainless monkey than a heartless monster. (To Frieza)
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: There's only one certainty in life. A strong man stands above and conquers all!
[Piccolo and Vegeta sit back to back on a tiny island] Piccolo: Is it over? Vegeta: Not until the fish jumps. [a fish jumps out of the water] Vegeta: It's over.
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.
Vegeta: Whenever the journalists show up, I'll just destroy them. Bulma: Vegeta, behave yourself! Vegeta: Fine.
Vegeta: I'd rather die than fuse with you! Goku: Vegeta, you're already dead!
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.
Majin Buu: [Super Buu] So, hotshot, you want to fight Majin Buu? Gohan: [smirking] Fight you? No. I want to kill you.
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!
[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?"
Vegeta: Let me ask you. Does a machine like yourself ever experience fear.
Goku: It looks like they only want me, and that's exactly who they'll get.
Goku: It would be meaningless to fight with you now. You're too scared and ashamed. Live with the shock. Keep it bottled up inside you. Silently.
Vegeta: While I was with you guys, I became more human. I didn't like that. I even have a family and started to like living on earth.
Frieza: [Frieza confronts Guru] Hello there. [Guru doesn't respond] Frieza: My, he's not much of a conversationalist. Yohoo, are you mad because I didn't knock?
Gohan: I'll do it slowly, so you can watch me better.
Vegeta: Trunks, I never hugged you as a baby... let me hug you.
Frieza: There're three things I refuse to tolerate: cowardice, bad haircuts, and millitary insurrection.
Kid Trunks: Hey Goten, did anyone ever tell you that you're stupid?
Dende: Eternal Dragon, by your name, I summon you forth, Shenron.
Goku: Sorry, I saw an opening that just screamed 'ATTACK,' so I did, ha!
Piccolo: We can't give up just because things aren't the way we want them to be.
Trunks: Father, you're so tough and proud, hard and cold like a rock. But still, deep down, your heart beats like mine does... I know you feel... I'm your son and I will always love you.
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!
Piccolo: Fool! Never believe anything the enemy tells you!
Gohan: Piccolo, can I have some help here? Piccolo: Sure just one thing. There will be no help!
Goku: Kaio-Ken! Times Ten!
Vegeta: This can't be! His beam is as strong as my Gallick Gun! Yarijobe: You did it! Gokuuuuu! Goku: Not quite. He's regaining control. He'll be off my beam soon, probably mad as a hornet, I bet. Yarijobe: Are you sure? Goku: Mmm-hmm.
Vegeta: What's wrong Frieza? Is your brain another one of your weak and under used muscles?
Vegeta: Kakkarot! Dodge this next attack, if you can!... But even if I miss you... THIS WHOLE PLANET'S GOING UP IN SMOOOOKE!
Vegeta: [understands that Captain Ginyu is now a frog] It's frog-stompin' time!
Vegeta: Let's see what you got Kakarot. Galic Gun Fire!
Goku: How can androids have babies?
Vegeta: [Looks back at Goku, who he had just knocked out] And if I don't come back before you return [Chuckle] Vegeta: Then we'll have to continue this another day. When I see you in Hell.
King Kai: Goku, what's that noise? Goku: It's my stomach, I'm hungry.
Goku: That's what you think, Captain Cocky!
Vegeta: I am the prince of all Saiyans once again!
Pan: Your real strength is your bravery.
Super Buu: So, hot - shot, you want to fight Majin Buu? Mystic Gohan: Fight you? No, I want to destroy you.
[to an android] Vegeta: If you give up now I promise to turn you into something useful, like a toaster or a washing machine.
Vegeta: [Vegeta's last thought before he dies fighting Majin Buu] Bulma, Trunks. This is for you.
Master Roshi: Now, did you boys remember to pack your toothbrushes! Krillin: Yes! Goku: Tooth... what?
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.
Frieza: [after blowing up Krillin] Pop goes the weasel!
Vegeta: ~evil laugh~... And then there was one...
Vegeta: Nappa, remind me to look into getting you dewormed again.
Kid Trunks: I think being world champion will be fun. Goten: I'll definitely tell you how it is.
Arlian King: Kill those men, they're very bad men. Nappa: We're bad? Vegeta: Well, a little.
Gohan: Well sometimes Piccolo... uh... a little on the paranoid side. Videl: I guess you were right. He does seem a little bit high strung.
Vegeta: [after killing Android 19] Too Bad! I only wish that there was a junkyard, so could give him a proper burial.
Piccolo: Not bad, for an early prototype.
[about Shenron, the Eternal Dragon] Dende: Hey! Don't piss off the god of love!
Piccolo: My ears do more than just frame my face.
Trunks: You should know, I'm much more powerful than my father.
Frieza: [a group of large Namekian warriors is about to attack Frieza] Oh my, four big brutes against little ol' me?
[Jeice and Burter fly around Goku, who dodges so fast it isn't noticeable] Jeice: I've had enough of this game of cat and mouse! Let's show him what the Ginyu Force is really about! [They land] Jeice: We've had enough of this, ya coward. Now make a move! [Goku punches him, his nose starts bleeding] Burter: Jeice, are you all right? Is it bleeding? Jeice, be careful or you'll stain your gloves. Jeice: Burter, just shut up!
Vegeta: You thought I was bad with a tail, huh? [shouts] Vegeta: Well, strap yourself in!
Piccolo: [Talking to his split form] Hey, make a mental note - tails grow back
Raditz: [to a wounded Piccolo] Why so blue, green man? Is it because you're powerless to help your friend, or 'cause you're just plain ugly?
Vegeta: Kakarot! Stop poking me in the eye you idiot! Goku: It's not my fault, you keep poking me in the mouth! Vegeta: Shut up Kakarot! [Attempting to de-fuse]
Vegeta: What went wrong? You had me!
SSJ3 Goku: If I can't do it, then who else can! Exploding Dragon Fist!
Majin Buu: Buu turn you into candy.
Goku: Wow how cute. Is he yours Yamcha? Yamcha: Huh! He's not my kid. Goku: [Trunks cries] Okay! Okay! You know? Come to think of it he does look a little bit like Vegeta.
Yarijobe: Think again. There's no way you're leaving the kid here.
King Cold: I'm proud that I have taught you all the necessary skills in life. Use them well.
King Kai: He is the destroyer of worlds. To anger him is to jeopardize the universe.
Cell: I have yet to show you, young warrior, what I'm truly capable of.
Trunks: As long as I have the power to destroy you Cell, I'm willing to sacrifice everything.
Goku: What did that Shin say to you? He wasn't rude was he? Do you want me to set him straight for you? I bet if I told him you were once the Guardian of Earth he'd have a little more respect! Piccolo: No! Don't do that! Please! Don't do anything! Please don't!
Cell: Silly Piccolo. My secrets will not be unlocked so easily.
Majin Buu: [Super Buu] This Majin Buu will wait one hour, then I will kill you all...
Vegeta: No! My only target is Kakarot! I couldn't care less about your quarrel with the Kai! Bibidi: What? By every fiber in your body I command you Vegeta! Kill the Kai! Vegeta: NO! You may have taken over my mind and my body, but there's one thing a Saiyan always keeps: his PRIDE!
King Kai: I'm the King. When you get to be King, you're not supposed to have to do all the work.
Piccolo: Even with the energy you took from me, my power is still far greater than your own.
Goku: Why don't you come to Other World with me? Krillin: What? No way! I'm married now bro! This is the good wife! Right babe? Android 18: [blushing] Goon.
Tournament Announcer: Is uh, # 18 your real name?
Garlic Jr.: Everything will be sucked into the dead zone including you! All be locked away in total darkness for the rest of eternity, just as my father was!
Vegeta: Don't remind me. I'm mad enough to hurt somebody and pounding you just might be the therapy I need.
Sorcerer: I wish for you to unlock this oracle and release Tapion the brave from it. Shenron: That will be a piece of cake!
Android 17: Tell me, are all you Saiyans so full of yourselves? Is this how you hide your incompetence? We androids will always be superior to your kind.
Goku: Hi, Hercule. Hercule: Hey, how are you? Pan: Don't forget me, grandpa. Hercule: How's my little girl? So have you come to cheer grandpa on? Goku: No, silly, we're all entering the tournament. Hercule: [stammers] Goku: Don't worry, Hercule. If one of us makes it to the finals, we'll let you keep your title. Okay?
Goku: I can go one step farther if I wanted to.
Pan: [Pan's ice cream cone fell to the ground. Pan begins to cry] Waaaahhhh! He killed my ice cream cone! [crying continues] Goku: Whew! Goodness gracioius!
Cell: Perhaps these miserable humans would appreciate a light show.
Gohan: Piccolo! You big jerk! I take back all the nice things I said about you!
Krillin: Hey hun! I've got a great idea, let's trade! Yo take my spot and I'll fight Hercule!
Krillin: Piccolo, err Kami, that is um?
Android 17: [clapping] A beautiful speech, I can see it now, you truly are a prince with the royal blood of a Saiyan.
Gôku: Ally to good! Nightmare to you!
Tien: Piccolo just gave Cell everything he had and it didn't even phase him.
Cell: Now that we have the vermin out of the way. You're next Piccolo.
[after scanning the power levels of 3 Namek warriors] Frieza: You have the power levels of a Boy Scout troop!
Piccolo: I've never had real feelings about anyone before... Grr... I don't like it!
Vegeta: Strength is the only thing that means anything to me!
Frieza: [Frieza has just ripped Nail's arm off] Oh my, that has got to hurt.
[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! [Piccolo flies away]
Vegeta: Are you ready now to witness a power not seen for thousands of years?
Cell: [During the Kamehameha struggle between Gohan and Perfect Cell] This must be hard on you with all those wounds Gohan. I bet this makes them *burn*!
Kid Trunks: SO, what are you going to buy with your winnings? Goten: I dont know. Toys, I guess. Kid Trunks: Your such a toddler. Goten: What about you? Kid Trunks: I'm not sure what I'm going to buy. Goten: Yea, I guess when your family is the richest in the world, there arnt many toys that you dont have.
[about Gohan] Master Roshi: Has he seen... Oh, I don't know the full moon? Goku: No we go to bed pretty early, why? Bulma, Krillin, Master Roshi: No reason.
