Season 1

I went back and paid for them.

—"Gem Glow"

All that matters is that Steven is happy.

—"Gem Glow"

Pay attention to these petals, Steven. The petals' dance seems improvised, but it is being calculated in real time based on the physical properties of this planet. With hard work, and dedication, you can master the magical properties of your gem and perform your own dance!

—"Gem Glow"

Some of us are trying to protect humanity.

—"Laser Light Cannon"

Don't touch those, their shards are deadly!

—"Cheeseburger Backpack"

Oh, Amethyst, there you are. Care to explain what one of my swords was doing in your room?
Amethyst: Having a "sword party."
Oh, please, you took it!

—"Together Breakfast"

These shards have a powerful partial consciousness that has been harnessed by gems throughout history in order to create semi-sentient drone soldiers with the capacity to follow basic orders. Gems once created an army of these drones, but found their obedience waned as the shards overdeveloped inside their uniforms and turned on their commanders. You see, any shard inside any sort of container could become a monster!


Fryman: You were great, Frybo. The kids today just didn't understand. Now, they never will.
Weren't people scared of it before it attacked them?


Steven: Pearl, I think our work here is done.
Put your clothes on, Steven.


This just goes to show that you should always listen to me, and never listen to Amethyst.
Amethyst: That's fair.

—"Cat Fingers"

Let's set up a playdate! I'll write up an invitation and work out a schedule. Oh! We'll have to find out her favorite kind of tea.

—"Bubble Buddies"

I misunderstood the point of this ride.

—"Serious Steven"

Steven, what have I told you about touching magical artifacts?!

—"Serious Steven"

We want to stop all wrestling everywhere! Are you going to let us destroy all wrestling? Eheheh.

—"Tiger Millionaire"

Humans find such fascinating ways to waste their time.

—"Arcade Mania"

Is water just hydrogen and oxygen "mashed together"?

—"Giant Woman"

Amethyst: Well, I'm going with not Pearl.
Well, that's perfect, because I don't want to go with grammatically incorrect people anyway.

—"Giant Woman"

You have to feel like your own self! Sweet and considerate, and only occasionally obnoxious!

—"So Many Birthdays"

I can't leave you guys alone for a second.

—"Steven the Sword Fighter"

Nana Gunga: Hit Amethyst into the air as hard as you can!
With pleasure.

—"Beach Party"

There are... different ways of being strong.

—"Coach Steven"

Steven: I guess I'm just too tough to cry.
Just today you were crying about snakes.
Steven: They don't have any arms!

—"An Indirect Kiss"


—"An Indirect Kiss"

Ugh... I hate fighting me!

—"Ocean Gem"

'UUU Space Travel?' What is this?

—"Space Race"

This will be perfectly fine, just a pop over to the nearest star system. I'll give him back in 50 years.

—"Space Race"

I'm so sorry... I almost got us killed..!

—"Space Race"

Humans just lead short, boring, insignificant lives, so they make up stories to feel like they're a part of something bigger. They want to blame all the world's problems on some single enemy they can fight, instead of a complex network of interrelated forces beyond anyone's control.

—"Keep Beach City Weird"

Why does it have to be dinner? We get all the energy we need from our gems, and while our human constructs are capable of eating, I find it very uncomfortable.

—"Fusion Cuisine"

Let go of my spear, you little twerps. I'll destroy you!

—"Watermelon Steven"

I like to watch you sleep sometimes. And by sometimes, I mean often.

—"Lion 3: Straight to Video"

Oh, Steven, you're supposed to sneeze into your antecubital fossa.

—"Warp Tour"

Pearl: Oh, how do I put this? All Gems aren't necessarily...good.
Amethyst: All those monsters we fight used to be just like us! Right, Pearl?
Pearl: Yes. But they've become corrupted and broken. We have to take care of them, subdue them, contain them. It's the best we can do for them, for now. If we don't, then...

—"Ocean Gem"

I hope you can forgive me. You're the one good thing that came out of this mess, I always thought you were proud of that.

—"On the Run"

Stop... coming... here... you... STUPID... BALLS!

—"Marble Madness"

No! Rose didn't have a lion!

—"Rose's Scabbard"

Everything I ever did, I did for her. And now she's gone. But I'm still here.

—"Rose's Scabbard"

I can't believe my flipping eyes!

—"The Message"

Season 2

That could have gone...a lot worse.

—"Full Disclosure"

You always say you'll be the crocodile, but you never commit!

—"Full Disclosure"

I don't understand your human relationships. So, um...goodbye!

—"Full Disclosure"


—"Say Uncle"


—"Say Uncle"

That's not my baby!

—"Say Uncle"

Greg: Aw jeez, what time is it?

—"Story for Steven"

Steven: You have to help me take down all the shirts and stop Buck from making more!
Have the shirts come to life and possessed the bodies of their wearers?!

—"Shirt Club"

Are the shirts destroying the wearer's will to continue on in this mortal coil, thereby shutting down Beach City?!

—"Shirt Club"

Do you understand that cartoon show?



—"Sworn to the Sword"

Rose made me I was everything.

—"Sworn to the Sword"

Her fingers were too fast for us!

—"Keeping it Together"

Listen, Mr. Universe. Rose may find you charming, but that's only because you're human. You're a novelty, at best.

—"We Need to Talk"

Amethyst: I think this one's my favorite.
...I think he's her favorite too.

—"We Need to Talk"

I don't get tired; I get results.

—"Chille Tid"

No! No, no, no, no! We just needed a reason to fuse! I just wanted to share a few more victories with you!

—"Cry for Help"

I am a gem of many talents. A dedication to fact is just one of them.

—"Historical Friction"

Oh, what's 200 years between friends?

—"Historical Friction"

Please! Tell me! How can I make you forgive me!?

—"Friend Ship"

But it's true! No matter how hard I try to be strong like you... I'm just a Pearl... I'm useless on my own... I need someone to tell me what to do... When we fuse, I can feel what it's like to be you..! Confident and secure and complete... You're perfect... You're the perfect relationship... You're always together... I just—I wanted to be a part of that...

—"Friend Ship"
