Prince Tallen Quotes in Buck Rogers (1939)
Prince Tallen Quotes:
Prince Tallen: A de-gravity belt? I don't understand.
Buck Rogers: It's a device we use here on Earth. It's really an outgrowth of the old parachute.
Killer Kane: How did you get in here?
Buck Rogers: We were here when you and Prince Tallen entered the room.
Prince Tallen: It's Buck Rogers.
Killer Kane: Who is Buck Rogers?
Prince Tallen: He's the Hidden City American who came to Saturn.
Buck Rogers: Tallen, you're not gonna sign this treaty until I've had a chance to show you just why this man is called Killer Kane.
Killer Kane: Don't be a fool, Rogers. If you persist in this folly, my men will kill you.
Buck Rogers: Not until I've shown Prince Tallen just what you do with your prisoners, Kane.
Buck Rogers: See for yourself, Prince Tallen. Those steel caps they're wearing are Amnesia Helmets, an invention of Kane's 'scientists' to rob men of their minds and their will.
Prince Tallen: But, this is incredible.
Buck Rogers: Nevertheless, Tallen, it's true. Now do you know why we're fighting this man?
Prince Tallen: Who is your leader? I shall be glad to treat with him.
Killer Kane: That's a very handsome gesture, Prince Tallen. But how do you and Rogers plan to leave my city? You'll be arrested by my guards before you can leave the palace.
Prince Tallen: Someday, you must return to the planet Saturn with me and receive the thanks of my people for preventing the alliance with Kane.
Buck Rogers: I'd rather you thank me by giving your planet's support... in smashing Killer Kane's armies.
Prince Tallen: Laska took this from one of the amnesia helmets and put it in mine.
Buck Rogers: That's it. That's Kane's way of destroying the minds of his captives; forcing them to obey his commands. You can prove it by trying it on yourself.
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.
Aldar: Colonel Rogers, the people of Saturn find themselves more deeply indebted to you than ever. Words alone cannot explain our gratitude. If you can suggest a concrete means by which we can prove it, you need only command us.
Buck Rogers: I need no proof, sir, outside of your promise to support us in ridding the world of Killer Kane's outlaw army.
Prince Tallen: You already have that promise and we shall not fail you.
