Duck Dodgers: [plants his flag] I claim this planet in the name of the Earth!
[the Martian Maggot lands. Marvin the Martian leaves his ship and plants a Martian flag.]
Marvin the Martian: I claim this planet in the name of Mars! Isn't that lovely?
Duck Dodgers: Look, bud, I've got news for you. I have already claimed this bit of dirt for the Earth, and there just isn't room enough on this planet for the two of us.
Marvin the Martian: I do believe you are right. [pulls his disintegrating pistol]
Duck Dodgers: Heh! Little does he realize that I have on my disintegration-proof vest. You may fire when ready, Gridley.
[Marvin fires; Dodger is reduced to dust, but the vest is intact. Porky immediately runs out and re-atomizes Dodgers with a Re-Integrating Pistol]
Duck Dodgers: What-where-who-how- Oh, you, huh? Just when I had him going, you had to butt in! Well, get back in that spaceship!
Porky Pig: Eh, y-y-yes, sir, Your Hero ship, sir. [heads back to the ship.]
Duck Dodgers: [runs back to Marvin with his own disintegrating pistol] Ha-ha, got the drop on you with MY disintegrating pistol! And, brother, when it disintegrates, it disintegrates! [pulls the trigger, whereupon the pistol itself disintegrates.]
Duck Dodgers: Heh, well, what do you know? It disintegrated. [Marvin fires, but Dodgers gets out of the way in time and runs into the ship. Porky opens the door and gives Marvin a lit stick of dynamite]
Porky Pig: Happy b-b-birthday you think from another world you. [Porky closes the door]
Marvin the Martian: Oh, thank you. [the dynamite explodes, leaving only Marvin's helmet. Looking angry, he glares at the closed door, and still in his helmet, goes back to the Martian Maggot]
