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:|
|Thane, son of Thanos, present yourself for judgment!||Ronan:|
|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 - RonanEdit
|Karnak:||What is your errand here, Ronan?|
|Maximus the Mad is accused of causing war between Thanos and the people of Earth.
Furthermore, he is accused of reneging on his agreement with Thanos and thereby creating the conditions for that war to begin.
|Tony Stark:||Reneging on--|
|Turn your Test Subject Army over to Thanos, as you agreed, and that charge will be expunged.||Ronan:|
|Tony Stark:||I knew it. I knew it! You people didn't believe me, but I knew we couldn't trust that guy. I mean, where was Thanos--or anyone but an Inhuman--going to get that much Terrigen to work with?|
|Gorgon:||Nobody trusted him, Stark. But it was his word against Thanos'.|
|Tony Stark:||Well, now we know. Hope it's not too late.|
|Surrender him, let his army stand down, and we will have no further quarrel.||Ronan:|
|Karnak:||As satisfying as I would find it to be rid of Maximus, he's family. The royals of Attilan will administer their own justice, Ronan.|
|Yield, Maximus, and your ordeal will end.||Ronan:|
|Still you protect him?||Ronan:|
|Karnak:||No. We protect Earth... from you.|
|I withdraw... but the accusation against Maximus stands. Have a care lest you be accused yourselves, for interfering.||Ronan:|
|Tony Stark:||Maximus sure did make us look like Mayberry RFD, didn't he? We've been had. Ronan has a lot of negative personal qualities, but he doesn't lie.|
|Medusa:||No. He doesn't. Maximus has run to Thanos, begging for his life. I cannot decipher the words, but the nature of his emotions is clear.|
|Nick Fury:||Where are they?|
|Medusa:||I don't know. They are moving, growing more distant...|
|Nick Fury:||Uh uh. We are not going to harbor the mastermind of this new Test Subject army and then just let him walk away. Coulson. Find them.|
|Agent Coulson:||Roger that, Boss.|
