Second Councilman Quotes in Buck Rogers (1939)
Second Councilman Quotes:
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.
Second Councilman: Since our first contact with the people of the Earth, they have brought us nothing but trouble. Now a prince of royal blood has been stolen; his life threatened.
Second Councilman: May I who first suggested surrender now withdraw my plea. Let us abide by our treaty with the people of the Hidden City and fight Killer Kane.
Aldar: And you?
Saturnian Councilman: I too cast my vote for war.
