Buck Rogers: What's this about a Kane squadron?
Wilma Deering: A Kane squadron? Buck, I don't understand.
Buck Rogers: You don't understand? I just got a message from here that you've sighted another Kane squadron.
Wilma Deering: But I didn't...
George 'Buddy' Wade: I did that, Buck. I, uh... I knew Wilma would want to congratulate you, but she couldn't because was on duty. So, I sorta fixed things up.
Buck Rogers: Well, from now on, you can be my official fixer, Buddy.
George 'Buddy' Wade: Well, I guess the first thing an official fixer should know is when he's not wanted.
Buck Rogers: Yeah.
Voiceover: From somewhere in the skies above us come, from time to time, flaming discs and weird phenomena. What are they? Whence have they come?
Buck Rogers: I don't understand, sir. Who is this man called Killer Kane?
Professor Huer: He is the result of the stupidity of the men of your century. You failed to stamp out lawlessness and in the end the criminal became stronger than the law. Racketeers you called them. Today, they rule the world as cruelly as they ruled their gangs in your day.
Killer Kane: And you are the men I made counsellors of Earth? I would be better served by this Buck Rogers who walked through your men as if they were children.
Capt. Laska: Wait! We'll take them alive and force the secret of the Hidden City from them!
Control Officer: Westmore Observatory calling dirigible Chandril. Westmore Observatory calling dirigible Chandril.
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.
Killer Kane: You may save yourself considerable discomfort by telling me where to find the entrance to the Hidden City.
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.
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.
Wilma Deering: Did they say Buddy Wade was in the palace?
Cell Guard [Ch. 10]: Yes, and it won't be long before all your friends are out of our way forever.
Wilma Deering: I didn't think even Killer Kane would make war on children.
Cell Guard [Ch. 10]: The Leader Kane makes war on anyone who defies him and he shows no mercy.
Professor Huer: If Kane has captured them, their death will be just as certain and even more brutal.
Killer Kane: [to Buck Rogers who is wearing an amnesia helmet] Polish my boot.
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.
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.
Buck Rogers: Gentlemen, you're dealing with the vilest type of crime known to man: kidnapping. Why, we've fought it on Earth for centuries. Men capable of such a crime are without honor. They're words are worthless. And Killer Kane is the foulest of the lot.
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.
