|Tony Stark:||The Circle of 8 is suddenly going more bonkers. Seems like Skadi and Skirn weren't enough for them.|
|Would you like to know why?||Nebula:|
|Nick Fury:||Hold on. Who's this?|
|Nicholas Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D., I come bearing an offer, but first, where is the one called Thane?||Nebula:|
|Star-Lord:||Um, excuse me. Nebula? Star-Lord. Remember me? Hi, S.H.I.E.L.D. people.|
|Nick Fury:||And who is this?|
|Gamora:||Peter Quill. But he likes it when you call him Star-Lord. He's one of us.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||Star-Lord's been keeping tabs on the situation, because Nebula's got Thanos' Black Order involved.|
|Your previous resistance to the Black Order has earned a small amount of respect among those who wish to destroy you. Present Thane to me now and you will save a great many lives. He has killed his father and must answer for it.||Nebula:|
|Nick Fury:||I'm going to tell you exactly what I told Corvus Glaive when he showed up offering the same deal:
Go to hell.
|I was hoping you'd say that. I would much prefer to hunt him down myself... but in the spirit of the Tribute, I thought I would ask you to submit first.
To the hunt, then!
|Maria Hill:||She's gone. Agent, we're moving Thane to a S.H.I.E.L.D. safe house. While we do that, we need to keep Nebula away from him.|
Boss - NebulaEdit
|Are you ready to die protecting Thane?||Nebula:|
|Star-Lord:||Um, let me think. Maybe. Are you looking for Thane? Because he specifically said we were supposed to not tell you where he was.
By the way, you're looking great. Ruthless pursuit of vengeance really does put a healthy flush in your cheeks.
|Thane is a fugitive and a murderer. Give him to me and perhaps you will live.||Nebula:|
|Star-Lord:||Well, about the murderer thing. I'm not sure you really have the moral high ground there.|
|Star-Lord:||Also, I'm pretty sure that Thanos has a murder or two on his record. Am I wrong about that?|
|You do not judge Thanos--Ronan and I judge the stripling who killed him. When the Mad Titan falls, chaos reigns in the wake of his passage... and I am the bringer of that chaos!||Nebula:|
|Star-Lord:||Whoa. That sounded so good. Say it again?|
|Now. Where is Thane?||Nebula:|
Boss - Ronan/NebulaEdit
|Surrender Thane to us, and then you will begin to answer for your crimes.||Ronan:|
|Emphasis on "begin." We're not done with you either way.||Nebula:|
|Star-Lord:||Which crimes are we talking about? I mean, we've been pirates and smugglers and semi-legal bodyguard types...
But I'm not sure it's a crime to protect somebody against a bunch of interstellar hit men.
And women. Sorry, Nebula.
|Thane stands accused of parricide. By defending him, you are complicit, and therefore accused as well.||Ronan:|
|Star-Lord:||Not guilty, Your Honor!|
|You are about to face what was once called a trial by ordeal. Ready yourself.||Nebula:|
|You will not turn Thane over to face his crimes?||Ronan:|
|Groot:||I AM GROOT!|
|Rocket Raccoon:||Let me translate: "You're not getting Thane. In fact, the only thing you're getting is out of here."|
|You think you have the moral high ground? You're more of a fool than I believed. Watch your back, Peter Quill. This isn't the last time we'll meet.||Nebula:|
Boss - NebulaEdit
|Queen of the Inhumans. Thanos sends his regards.||Nebula:|
|Medusa:||The regard of Thanos is something I avoid.|
|Turn over your husband's thieving brother. and Thanos will look another direction.||Nebula:|
|Medusa:||For a little while, perhaps. Until he has another pretext for invasion. I'd prefer to settle things now.|
|As you wish.||Nebula:|
|Maximus entered into an agreement. Now he has gone back on it. He endangers all of you. You will protect him still?||Nebula:|
|All this will end when you give us Maximus.||Nebula:|
|A liar, a traitor... and still you protect him.||Nebula:|
|Thanos will have his way, Medusa. He was only after Maximus at first, but if you anger him you too will be targets of his vengeance.||Nebula:|
|Medusa:||If not for this, for another reason. It makes no difference to me.|
|Not yet. But it will.||Nebula:|
|Medusa:||She's gone. Can we track her? She might lead us to Thanos.|
|Agent Coulson:||Trying... no. She slipped our surveillance.|
|Nick Fury:||Any sign of Thanos anywhere?|
|Agent Coulson:||Negative, Boss. We'll keep looking.|
