I'm the guy who died playing the game your way, and didn't even get a gravestone as thanks for it. And you know what? That's fine by me, because now I know how the world really works. Someone has to be the garbage man for you people. And guess who just got hired. Don't thank me... just stay out of my yard, and I'll stay out of yours. Until you mess up again, of course.
Fear is the mind-killer. Overcome it before it overcomes you. Doesn't matter if you're a cop, a coach or a superhero...we all need to find the strength to be brave. With a little bravery and a half-assed plan, maybe one day you can grow up just like me. I'm Guy Gardner. And I'm a Green Lantern.
Listen up. We're the Green Lantern Corps. We're the best team in the universe. If we believe in each other, if we trust in each other, if we conquer fear... we're unstoppable. Together, we can turn all this around. But first, there's something we gotta do. Our power's gotta match our will. So together now, rings forward, and -- Recharge!
We got hurt Lanterns all over the place, Cyborg-Superman and Super-Psycho Junior missin' from their sciencells, Sinestro's band of merry men lightin' up the universe, Kyle Rayner's been kidnapped--and you buncha babies wanna cry and hold on ta stupid grudges?!
You twisted diseased maniac. Always tryin' to be the boy scout. Always tryin' to do what others think is the right thing. It's guys like you that always end up with ulcers or in a tower with a gun goin' postal. Well, Hal ol' buddy... Guy Gardner ain't got no ulcers!
Well, it's all been a little overwhelmin', Miss Grant. All the light and people. I've always dreamed of havin' a place like this to come to, but now that it's finally comin' true, I ... uh ... well ... I'm feelin' pretty damn powerful!
Don't deserve it, he says. That's what they all say. "Guy don't deserve it. Guy don't deserve nothin'. Guy's garbage." All my life they been makin' me feel like garbage. All of 'em. Lovers. Partners. Enemies. Parents. But I hung in. I took it. I showed 'em! I have nothing... 'cept what I took. 'Cept what I got by my own pain. By my own guts! By my own strength! Remember, damn it -- when you gotta do somethin', you give it everything. No doubts. No softness. No nothin'! Yeah, Sinestro. You got the experience. You got the brains. You got the control. But I got one thing you ain't got. I got your ring!
Some say I'm a loser 'cause of my anger. No, I'm a loser, 'cause throughout my whole life I've had everything taken from me. Well, bein' a hero's the only place I can let my anger out and do some good. And nobody's takin' that away.
Who the hell d'ya think you are, huh? Who the hell do you think you are!? C'mon, get up, ya stupid punk. Ya think you're the only one who got pushed around when he was a kid? Ya think you're the only one who hadda learn to watch his back? C'mon -- get up -- so I can show you how I used t'handle those creeps!
