Capt. Laska Quotes in Buck Rogers (1939)
Capt. Laska Quotes:
Capt. Laska: Wait! We'll take them alive and force the secret of the Hidden City from them!
Buck Rogers: We came here as envoys... seeking an alliance with you people of Saturn.
Aldar: And why do you desire such an alliance?
Buck Rogers: To escape the tyranny of a man called Killer Kane who has imposed his rule on all but a handful of us; a man who governs by brute force.
Capt. Laska: That's not true. Leader Kane is just man. He rules with the consent of all save a few revolutionaries.
Second Councilman: Revolutionaries.
Aldar: Is it true that you are revolutionaries?
Buck Rogers: Ah, in a sense I suppose we are. If it's revolutionary to protest against brutality.
Saturnian Councilman: I have heard enough. Rebels or not, I say throw them all into prison. Seven months no contact with outside planets.
Aldar: But in this age of science, we cannot hope to isolate ourselves from the rest of the universe. But we are dedicated to peace and have no patience for rebels.
Capt. Laska: I'm going to the forum to force them to sign that treaty.
Prince Tallen: You cannot bluff the men of Saturn into accepting your terms.
Capt. Laska: It's not altogether a bluff, Prince Tallen. I shall tell them that you send word asking that they surrender to save your life.
Prince Tallen: You cannot take them that message. It is not true!
Capt. Laska: Part of it is true.
[speaking to the guard]
Capt. Laska: If I'm not back within an hour, you know how to deal with our prisoner.
