Mantis Quotes in Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Mantis: [on Thanos] Death follows him like a shadow.
Mantis: [they stand outside a ship run aground in a desert after Masters Bear and Croc ran in] We gotta get in there.
Crane: But Master Shifu said...
Mantis: You're seriously afraid? Even Master Chicken's going in, and he's a *chicken*!
Crane: [Crane is flying, with Mantis on his hat] Wings of surveillance!
Mantis: Why do you do that?
Crane: Do what?
Mantis: Just 'cause you say "wings of" before something, it doesn't mean that you're doing a special move. It's like me saying "antenna of power!" or "thorax of... making sandwiches!"
Crane: Wings of disagreement.
Crane: Master, what are we going to do?
Shifu: *You* are going to find out where Kai is. Follow the trail of those jade creatures but do not engage For with every foe he faces Kai becomes stronger.

Shifu: No. It is because you can fly. Go

[everyone except Tigress laughs]
Po: What is that noise you're making? Laughter? I never heard of it! Work hard, panda, and maybe someday, you will have ears like mine.
[he holds two bowls over his head to look like Shifu's ears]
Tigress: Shifu loved Tai Lung like he had never loved anyone before... or since. And now, he has a chance to make things right. To train the true Dragon Warrior. And he's stuck with you. A big, fat, panda, who treats it like a joke.
[Po makes a sudden funny face]
Tigress: Oh that is it!
[she lunges at Po]
Mantis: Wait, my fault! I accidentally tweaked his facial nerve!
[Po falls to the ground revealing a lot of needles in his back]
Mantis: And may... have also stopped his heart.
Tigress: [seeing Po bounce down the palace steps] If he's smart, he won't come back up those steps.

Mantis: He's not gonna quit bouncing, I'll tell you that.

Oogway: [Raising Po's arm with his stick] The universe has brought us the Dragon Warrior!
Tigress, Crane, Monkey, Mantis, Viper: What?
Mr. Ping: WHAT?
Po: Ow! I thought you said acupuncture would make me feel *better*!

Mantis: Fur! I was gonna say fur.
Po: Sure you were.
Mantis: Who am I to judge a warrior based on his size, I mean, look at me!
Viper: [as they're fighting Tai Lung on a rope bridge] Monkey!
[Monkey gives the rope to Mantis and charges into battle]
Mantis: What was I thinking?
Mantis: You know, guys, I never expected to die like this. I thought I'd meet a nice girl, settle down, and then she'd eat my head.
Mantis: I didn't have any problems with my dad. Maybe it's 'cause Mom ate his head before I was born...
Mantis: Fear the bug!
Mantis: [spotting the Wolf Boss] Isn't that the guy who hammered you in the face?
Po: I hate that guy.
Mantis: Looks like this is the final chapter.
Swan: Depends on what book you're reading.
Mantis: It's beautiful.
Drax: It is. And so are you.
Drax: On the inside.
Mantis: When I touch someone I can feel their feelings.
[touches Quill's hand]
Mantis: You feel... love!
Peter Quill: Yeah, I guess - Yeah, I feel a general unselfish love for everyone.
Mantis: No. *Sexual* love...
Peter Quill: No. No, I don't.
Mantis: [points at Gamora] ... for her!
Peter Quill: No!
[Drax begins laughing hysterically]
Drax: She just told everyone you deepest, darkest secret!
[Drax continues laughing]
Peter Quill: Dude! Come on! I think you're reacting a little bit!
Drax: You must be so embarrassed!
[continues cracking up]
Drax: Do me! Do me! Do me!

Drax: [still laughing] You must be so embarrassed!
Drax: Do me! Do me, do me!
[Mantis touches Drax and she starts laughing hysterically]
Mantis: I've never felt such humor!
[Drax and Mantis are laughing and pointing at Peter]
Peter Quill: So unbelievably uncool.
[Mantis walks over to Gamora to touch her]
Gamora: Touch me, and the only thing you're gonna feel is a broken jaw.
Mantis: [sees Rocket] I love that scruffy dog, he's so cute I'm gonna die!
[Rocket snarls at Mantis]
