    • QUOTES (9)

      • Quark: Nobody could do this and survive.
        Palindrome: Not nobody, but you, Quark. You got one of the finest crews in the fleet, don't you?
        Quark: Well, they're good with garbage, but what can an emotional Transmute, a homemade robot, a Betty and her clone, and a plant do against a Gorgon's Doomsday ship?

      • Quark: I've just argued over the concept of love with a plant - and lost.

      • High Gorgon: People of Spartan, this is the High Gorgon. I command your unconditional surrender. You shall be treated with compassion, honor and patience. - You have twenty seconds before I blow you out of the galaxy.

      • High Gorgon: I suggest you take a closer look at my space ship.
        Leader of the Spartans: A ship? We see no ship. All I see is a large marooned planet.
        High Gorgon: That is my space ship!
        Leader of the Spartans : (pause) Just give us a few minutes to move our things out of the palace.

      • Andy: Commander, this is no place for a coward. Please - take - me - home.

      • Gene/Jean: (as Gene) Andy is scared to death, he drives me space bonkers.
        Andy: Spacehead, I'm a machine, I will live forever - unless this crew gets me destroyed.

      • Palindrome: Say, don't you have a mission or something?
        Quark: I'm supposed to seek out and destroy the High Gorgon's Doomsday ship.
        Palindrome: Well, that should keep you busy.
        Quark: Palindrome, it's huge, It's fast, it's powerful. What am I supposed to do, ram it with my superb garbage ship?

      • Gorgon: Is the Source dangerous?
        High Gorgon: Only if it's on your side.

      • Quark: Why do you say things like that? Out of the blue?
        Ficus: Blue? What blue?

    • NOTES (2)

      • In the Spanish language version of this episode the scene where the Bettys compare Quark to a god was removed so as not to offend Catholic viewers.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Star Wars

        The title of this episode "May the Source Be With You" is of course a reference to the 1977 film Star Wars and its oft-repeated line, "May the Force be with you."
