Black Helmet Man[edit]

  • (tripping over a box) Oop! There goes my trick knee.
  • Now Loke, you shall learn the truth: I am your mother! [Rips off suit to reveal pink dress] Now Momma's gonna teach you a lesson in manners! [Han Duet shoots Black Helmet Man, saving Loke, and making Black Helmet Man fly off into space] Wait till your Father gets hooooooooome!

  •  :Black Helmet Man: Any other questions?
British Council Member: I have a question, why do we all speak in British accents when we're from outer space and there's no Britain?

(Black Helmet Man pops British Council Member's head off)

Dialogue[edit]

Loke Groundrunner: Who are you?
Oobedoob Benubi: I am Oobidoob Benubi, I have the silliest name in the galaxy.
Loke Groundrunner: What's your middle name?
Oobedoob Benubi: Scooby-dooby.
Loke Groundrunner: Oobidoob Scooby-dooby Benubi?!
Oobedoob Benubi: One and the same, and you must be... the crybaby!

Princess Bunhead: Help me, Oobedoob Benubi. Oobedoob, oobedoob, oobedooby dooby.

Loke Groundrunner: Who could've done such a thing as this?
Oobedoob Benubi: This is the work of Black Helmet Man.
Loke Groundrunner: Who?
Oobedoob Benubi: Your father -- I-I mean a man who's farther...a farther away man!
Loke Groundrunner: Whoever he is, he must be bad. I will go with you and fight!
Oobedoob Benubi: Oh, big sacrifice; everyone you know is dead! Glad you could tear yourself away!

Loke Groundrunner: I’ve got three fist fighters coming from my left.
Pilot: Copy, Stray Dog.
Loke Groundrunner: I-I don’t think I’m Stray Dog.
Pilot: Copy that, Red Rooster.
Loke Groundrunner: I-I don’t think I’m Red Rooster either.
Pilot: No problem, Nasty Butler.
Loke Groundrunner: I’m ending this transmission.

Pilot: We got company, Swollen Ostrich.
Loke Groundrunner: Oh man, it's you.
Loke Groundrunner: [Fist fighter blows pilot's ship up] Thank you.

Loke Groundrunner: I'm going to trust my feelings and use the power of the thumb.
Voice of Oobedoob Benubi: Use the instrument panel, Loke.
Loke Groundrunner: What?
Voice of Oobedoob Benubi: The instrument panel. That's what it's there for. Advanced weaponry designed to hit tiny targets.
Loke Groundrunner: Ok, ok.
