10 Best Buzz Lightyear Quotes From The Toy Story Films – Screen Rant
The Toy Story films are filled with memorable characters, but few are as entertaining as Buzz Lightyear. The “space ranger” is introduced in the first ground-breaking Pixar film as a delusional yet heroic toy who doesn’t realize that he’s a toy. Throughout the franchise, he grew and continued to be one of the most loyal toys around.

Though the series is ended with Toy Story 4, there are plenty of great moments to look back on and a lot of Buzz Lightyear memories to revisit. From his heroics to him just being ridiculous, these are the best Buzz Lightyear quotes from the Toy Story films.
10 And There Seems To Be No Sign Of Intelligent Life Anywhere
Buzz is introduced in the first film as the big present that Andy gets at his birthday party. Though Andy is clearly excited, it becomes quite clear pretty quickly that there is something a little off about this spaceman toy.
As Buzz surveys his new surroundings, he believes he is transmitting a message back to Star Command. From atop Andy’s bed, he examines this strange planet he finds himself on before commenting that there is no intelligent life around just as Woody introduces himself.
9 So Your Inner Voice Advises You
Woody and Buzz make a great team, but they can even help each other when they are apart. In Toy Story 4, Woody talks about his inner voice directing him. Buzz takes this to mean his voice box is his inner voice.

This makes for a hilarious gag throughout the film as Buzz uses his programed catchphrases to direct him throughout their adventure. Surprisingly, the voices actually happen to give some very good advice most of the time.
8 We Have A Friend In Need, And We Will Not Rest Until He’s Safe In Andy’s Room
By Toy Story 2, Buzz has come around on accepting that he is a toy and is a happy member of Andy’s room. However, he does still have some of those space ranger tendencies and he does seem to find himself in the hero role quite often.
After Woody is stolen by a toy collector, Buzz organizes a mission to rescue him. He rallies the other toys to help him set out on the dangerous mission and it becomes clear that, despite their initial differences, Woody and Buzz are close companions now.
7 But We’re Not On My Planet, Are We?
As great of friends as they become, things started out pretty rough between Woody and Buzz in the first film. Woody saw Buzz as a toy who would replace him as Andy’s favorite and his jealousy quickly grew into resentment.
After accidentally knocking Buzz out of the window, Buzz tracks Woody down and confronts him. He calmly tells him that revenge is not something they believe in on his planet. But then he reminds Woody, they aren’t on his planet and he attacks.
6 Woody, You’re Not A Collector’s Item, You’re A Child’s Plaything. You. Are. A. Toy
One of the best aspects of the friendship between Woody and Buzz is that they can take turns being the ones who motivate the other to do what needs to be done and telling them what they need to hear.

In Toy Story 2, Woody discovers that he is a beloved collector’s item and decides to start a new life in a toy museum where he can be appreciated forever. It is Buzz that needs to talk some sense into Woody this time around and he uses Woody’s own words he told Buzz in the first film, “You. Are. A. Toy.”
5 Bonnie Will Be Okay
Toy Story 4 found Woody once again faced with a dilemma of what to do next and, once again, his friend Buzz was there to help him. While struggling with not feeling like Bonnie needs him, Woody reconnects with Bo Peep.
As they get ready to leave with Bonnie, Woody struggles with saying goodbye to Bo once more. Buzz tells his friend “She’ll be okay” then clarifies “Bonnie will be okay.” With that, Buzz says goodbye to his friend and allows him to start his new life with Bo.
4 He’s Not Lost. Not Anymore
After everything that Woody and Buzz had been through together, it makes for a bittersweet moment when they finally go their separate ways. However, it is clear that while he is sad to see his friend go, Buzz is happy that Woody has found a new purpose.
As the other toys watch as they leave Woody behind, one of them asks if Woody is a lost toy. With pride in his voice, Buzz answers “He’s not lost. Not anymore.” It is a sign of their deep friendship that Buzz just wants Woody to be happy.
Along with threatening to take Woody’s place as Andy’s favorite toy, Woody is particularly annoyed that Buzz continues to insist that he is a space ranger. He gets especially mad when Buzz announces that he can fly.

The two toys bicker back and forth, Woody saying he can’t fly and Buzz saying that he can. Finally, Buzz decides to demonstrate and amazingly (and with some luck) sort of flies. He lands back on the bed, looks at Woody, and proclaims “Can!”.
2 You Are A Sad, Strange Little Man, And You Have My Pity
Though Woody is enraged by Buzz in the beginning, Buzz seems to be simply bemused by Woody. His optimistic and heroic nature allows him to just brush off whatever insult or frustration Woody is throwing at him.
When Woody and Buzz find themselves lost together, Woody unleashes all of his anger on the spaceman. After the epic rant, Buzz simply looks at Woody and says, “You are a sad, strange little man, and you have my pity.” Never has a burn been so polite.
1 To Infinity, And Beyond!
It’s hard to even think of Buzz Lightyear and not think of his most famous catchphrase. “To infinity and beyond” is what Buzz says when he is attempting one of his epic spaceman feats, and it also comes to perfectly summarize the character.
The phrase itself is sort of nonsense and over-the-top, but it is also hopeful and bold. It also becomes a mantra for Woody and Buzz’s friendship which goes through a lot and continues, despite them being apart.
