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?

Professor Huer: By means of a gas discovered by Professor Morgan, these two people have remained in suspended animation for five hundred years.

Buck Rogers: Five hundred years?

George 'Buddy' Wade: That makes me old enough to be my own great grandfather.

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.

George 'Buddy' Wade: I wouldn't call Dr. Huer exactly handsome, but I sure would give a lot to see his face right now.

Buck Rogers: [laughs] I bet you would, Buddy.

Capt. Laska: Wait! We'll take them alive and force the secret of the Hidden City from them!

[first lines]

Control Officer: Westmore Observatory calling dirigible Chandril. Westmore Observatory calling dirigible Chandril.

Professor Wade: Hello, Chandril. Is that Lt. Rogers speaking?

Buck Rogers: Buck Rogers to you, Professor.

George 'Buddy' Wade: [facing a blizzard] Hello, Dad. We're having a swell time.

Buck Rogers: You're not scared, are you, Buddy?

George 'Buddy' Wade: Well, I guess I was a little scared before you got above that blizzard.

Buck Rogers: Keep a secret?

George 'Buddy' Wade: Yes, sir.

Buck Rogers: So was I.

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.

Killer Kane: You may save yourself considerable discomfort by telling me where to find the entrance to the Hidden City.

Buck Rogers: What are you gonna do?

Braeden - Captain of Dirigible [Ch. 1]: Bail out before we crash!

Buck Rogers: Stop him, Mitchell. He'll freeze to death before he lands.

Mitchell [Ch. 1]: Ah, it's better than dying in here like rats.

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.

Dynamo Room Floor Guard: What, another one from Hidden City?

Kane's Pilot: One of the leaders, Buck Rogers.

Dynamo Room Floor Guard: Looks like he might have been a pretty good man when he was a man. I got just the job for him.

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.

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.

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.

Buck Rogers: What have you done with Lt. Deering?

Killer Kane: We are not here to discuss her. You are the one we are interested in. Rogers, you have been the source of considerable annoyance to me. That's all over now. You may even be of some help to us... if you place any real value on your life.

Professor Huer: If Kane has captured them, their death will be just as certain and even more brutal.

George 'Buddy' Wade: What makes you all so sure that Buck and... Buck and Wilma are dead?

Captain Rankin: You wouldn't ask that, Buddy, if you could have seen their ship.

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.

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.

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.
