(Vegeta saves Gohan from Frieza's attack)
Krillin: I couldn't even follow that attack. It was almost instantaneous.
Vegeta: Yep, just gonna stand here and keep bein' awesome.
Piccolo: There's nothing we can do against that kind of power.
Vegeta: Uh, hello? Awesome. Right here.
Gohan: We're all gonna die!
Vegeta: You know what? All of you better duck. Because I'm about to turn left, and I don't wanna smack you with my dick.
Frieza: Oh look at you, Vegeta, you're really going to fight me? Well, not really fight, more like flailing angrily.
Vegeta: Make your jokes while you can, Frieza! because I can now see the peak of your power! While I'm only beginning to tap into mine!
Frieza: I feel like we been here before. Have we been here before?
Vegeta: You see I've have finally realized the legend!
Frieza: Oh my God! This is happening again!
Vegeta: That's right! You're not dealing with the average Saiyan warrior anymore, Frieza! I, Vegeta, have finally become...The Legendary Super Saiyan!
Frieza: OK, seriously. First off, Super Saiyan, what is that? What even is that? I'll tell you what it is. It's just some stupid legend passed by your filthy monkey ancestors around a camp fire like it was their own dung! Let me tell you Vegeta, I don't deal in legends, I deal in facts. And here's a fact: by the end of this, you are going to be crying like a little...bitch!
Vegeta: Bitch, you just jealous of my Super Saiyan swagger!
Frieza: Oh for f**k's sake.

Vegeta: Yes! I have him on the ropes! All he can do is dodge me!
Frieza: (Thinking to himself) God, Zarbon's dead. Dodoria's dead. the Ginyus are dead, this has been one giant mess! It's just like the jockstrap incident and only now I don't have Ginyu around to dig the holes.
Frieza: So are we done playing children's games, Vegeta, or do I have to tickle you? Eh? Eh? Cuchie coo? Cuchie-Cuchie Cuchie coo?
Vegeta: Stop it or I'm gonna blow you up! We'll see how you stand up to everything I've got! Take my Super Saiyan WRATH! (Fires a huge energy blast)
Frieza: (Thinking to himself) Oh, and I should probably send the Ginyus' families something. Perhaps some wine? A gift basket? (Kicks Vegeta's blast toward outer space) Or maybe gift baskets with wine.
Vegeta: (stunned) W-what? How-How is that? Gah!
Frieza: See? It's like I told you, Vegeta. Like a bitch.
Vegeta: (holding back tears, voice cracking) Sh-shut up!
Frieza: Oh my god, you actually are crying.
Vegeta: (hoarsely) I'm not cryin'! Not!
Frieza: Honestly, now I just feel bad. Usually I just blow up whatever's in my way but with you, I've gotten kind of attached. It's sort of like putting down Old Space Yeller.
Krillin: (off-screen) How is that a thing?!

Goku: So are you that "Freezer" guy?
Frieza: I am Lord Frieza, yes.
Goku: Awesome! I'mma deck you in the schnoz.
(Frieza drops Vegeta)
Vegeta: Ow.
Frieza: I'm sorry, that's a new one. Uh, who are you excatly?
Goku: I'm Goku. I'm insane. From Earth.
Frieza: (blank stare)
Vegeta: He means "Saiyan".
Frieza: Oh between you and the Namekian I think I've lost my touch at genocide.
Goku: (To Vegeta) What's wrong Vegeta? Did Freezer do this to you?
Frieza: Oh look! He's all concerned. I'm impressed Vegeta! You managed to make a friend.
Vegeta: (Weakily) Hate you. Hate you both.
Frieza: Unfortunately, Vegeta and I were having a disagreement. He wanted himself to live and well, I didn't.
Goku: Why do you want to die?
Frieza: No! I-I meant I want him to die--
Goku: Is it cause you look weird?
Frieza: WHAT!?
Goku: Oh you know you got that big head, those weird lips and that tail. (Frieza gets angry and fires a beam at Goku and Goku deflects it) And you don't have ears.
Frieza: Ok no! (Fires multiple beams at Goku and Goku deflects them all)
Goku: And to top it all off, you're really kind of a jerk.
Frieza: And apparently this is now happening. (To Vegeta) Vegeta! Explain! (Vegeta laughs) What are you--
Vegeta: You see Frieza? You aren't dealing with the average Saiyan warrior anymore.
Frieza: (Angrily) Oh my God!
Vegeta: He has risen above and become a legend, the legend that you fear. He's become a Super Sai-(Frieza fires a beam at Vegeta) YAN! (Gets hit and falls down)
Goku: (Gasps) Vegeta!
Frieza: No, seriously you have no idea how old that got.
