    • (When Thundarr frees Ookla from being chained up in Zek's village) Zek: You're human. Why do you defend that no good, spying ape? Thundarr: Look again, little man. Ookla is a Mok, not one of the Man-Apes. (Ookla growls) Zek: I guess we made a mistake. I'm Zek, mayor of the village. Thundarr: I am called Thundarr. My friends are Ookla and the Princess Ariel. Zek: Join us for nectar, please.

    • Thundarr: The Apes came this way. They're gathering down there. What kind of place is this? Ariel: It's an ancient movie studio. Thundarr: Studio?!? What is that? Ariel: It's...well, hard to explain.

    • (As they approach the giant gorilla in the airplane) Thundarr: Make another pass. I'm going out on the wing. Ariel: Right! (Gasps) The wing?!?

    • Thundarr: Ariel! You are safe. I was worried. Ariel: You were worried?!? (Ookla approaches with the captured Simius in the magic net) Thundarr: The night is over. And the Man-Apes rule nothing. (Later) Thundarr: Simius and his apes have fled the valley. You can rebuild your city. Zek: And without walls this time thanks to you, Thundarr. (Laughs and they shake hands) Ariel: Get that! Thanks to him!? (Ookla gives her a hard nudge with his elbow and laughs as she drops on the ground) Thundarr: Shall we be going, Ariel (Helps her up) Ariel: Fine with me! Thundarr: Ariel, Ookla...RIDE! (Ride off on the horses as the sun rises)
