View Full Version : The Wedding Vows of Ming the Merciless

Was just listening to my Flash Gordon soundtrack, which I haven't listened to in quite a bit.

Mixed in w/ the zany Queen space music are bits of dialogue from the film.

Here are the wedding vows of Ming the Merciless to the captive Earthling, Dale Arden:

Priest: Do you, Ming the Merciless, Ruler of the Universe take this Earthling, Dale Arden to be your Empress of the hour?

Ming: (pause) of the hour, Yes.

Priest: Do you promise to use her as you will?

Ming: (pause, then very slyly) Certainly!

Priest: Not to blast her into space?

Ming: (silence)

Priest: ....Until such time as you get the whim....?

Ming: I do.

Dale: I DO NOT!!

That shit is funny as hell.

And then there was the song that had the dialogue where Flash is fighting Ming's Imperial Guard, and they are getting their ass kicked, and Ming says to his General:

"Are you sure you are giving them the right pills?"


Gonna have to buy that on DVD in a few weeks. It is a shlocky classic!!
