  • Jupiter's uncle's reaction to his son convincing Jupiter to sell her eggs.
    [While hitting him repeatedly with a pillow] Your cousin is not a chicken!! You do not treat your cousin like chicken!!
  • This exchange between Caine and Jupiter: (paraphrased)
    Caine: …Your Majesty, I have more in common with a dog than I have with you.
    Jupiter: I love dogs. I've always loved dogs.
  • Jupiter telling the crew of the Aegis that she would like to change her clothes while she is alone, and conscious, for once.
  • Balem Abrasax. The character is so over the top that it's hard not to laugh at every single thing he says or does.
    Balem: I CREATE LIFE!!! …and I destroy it.
    • To quote Nathan Rabin in his article about the film:
      "With Jupiter Ascending and The Theory of Everything, Eddie Redmayne has the curious distinction of winning the most prestigious award in acting and giving the year's worst performance in the same 12-month span. When I write that Redmayne gives 2015's worst performance, I mean that partially as praise and partially as criticism: It takes a genius to get away with delivering a performance this spectacularly embarrassing and misconceived. […] His turn in Jupiter Ascending is unforgettable and utterly distinctive, but in a bizarre, nightmarish way. […] Redmayne is both the best and worst thing about Jupiter Ascending, and certainly the most wildly excessive."

  • Stinger's Pardon My Klingon.
    Stinger: Beeswax!
  • Bees having been genetically engineered to recognize royalty is a comical plot twist, to say the least.
  • GOOOO!
