Galaxy Quest (1999) Poster


Enrico Colantoni: Mathesar



  • [Trying to explain TV to the Thermians] 

    Gwen DeMarco : They're not ALL "historical documents." Surely, you don't think Gilligan's Island is a...

    [All the Thermians moan in despair] 

    Mathesar : Those poor people.

  • [Sarris forces Jason to tell Mathesar he's an actor on a TV show] 

    Jason Nesmith : I'm not a commander. There's no "National Space Exploration Administration." We don't have a ship.

    Mathesar : [looking at TV screen]  But there it is...

    Jason Nesmith : [gesturing with his fingers]  The ship is that big.

    Mathesar : But inside, I see many rooms.

    Jason Nesmith : You've seen plywood sets that look like the inside. Our beryllium sphere is... is wire with plaster around it. And our digital conveyor is... it's Christmas tree lights. It's a decoration. It's all fake. Just like me.

    Mathesar : But why...?

    Jason Nesmith : It's difficult to explain. On our planet, we, uh... we pretend to... to entertain. Mathesar, I am so sorry. God, I am so sorry.

  • Mathesar : We were hoping you could come with us. Our people have no commander.

    Commander Peter Quincy Taggart : Mathesar, I think your people have a great commander, sir.

    [salutes him] 

  • [as Jason is mooning them, looking for his shoes] 

    Mathesar : Commander, standing here in your presence is the greatest honor we could ever have hoped to achieve in our lifetimes.

    Jason Nesmith : Thanks, I really appreciate it... Could you guys look for another shoe?

  • Mathesar : We have enjoyed preparing many of your esoteric dishes. Your Monte Cristo sandwich is a current favorite among the adventurous.
