Top 10 Best Steven Universe Quotes

The Top Ten
1 "For a fusion to work, there needs to be balance. An imbalance can cause your fusion to lose touch with reality, see things that aren't there, and eventually fall apart." - Garnet, Mindful Education

"For a fusion to work, there needs to be balance. An imbalance can cause your fusion to lose touch with reality, see things that aren't there, and eventually fall apart. That is to say, if one of you is falling apart, your fusion will as well. To find balance, you must understand your feelings. To understand your feelings, you must see them clearly without running from them. " - Garnet, Mindful Education

2 "Hah...I know what's wrong with me. I'm not supposed to be small. And everyone's always acting like there's no problem." - Amethyst, Steven vs Amethyst

This quote is important. Amethyst knows how she is different and hates how she is smaller than the other quartz. It shows that Amethyst isn't all fun and games all the time. She has a serious side to her, even a side of self-doubt.

"Hah...I know what's wrong with me. I'm not supposed to be small. And everyone's always acting like there's no problem. You can be anything you want to be. No! I can't. Huh...I can't even be the one thing I'm supposed to be you know?"

This quote actually means a lot. In it, Amethyst expresses how suppressed she feels.

3 "I asked her about her hair, and then she asked how I colored mine. I told her, 'My appearance is just a conscious manifestation of light.' and she said, 'I know how that is.'" - Pearl, Last One Out of Beach City

"I asked her about her hair, and then she asked how I colored mine. I told her, "My appearance is just a conscious manifestation of light." and she said, "I know how that is." although, heh, I highly doubt it. Oh! And then I added, "By the way, I saved your planet, and your species, and you're welcome."

4 "Humans just lead short, boring, insignificant lives, so they make up stories to feel like they're a part of something bigger." - Pearl, Keep Beach City Weird

"Humans just lead short, boring, insignificant lives, so they make up stories to feel like they're a part of something bigger. They want to blame all the world's problems on some single enemy they can fight, instead of a complex network of interrelated forces beyond anyone's control."

You, of all people, should be grateful for that, Pearl.

5 "You know what's nice about being split up?... I get to look at you." - Ruby, Keystone Motel

One of the most romantic lines on the show.

6 "Apparently more than you, you... CLOD! "- Peridot
7 If every porkchop were perfect, we wouldn't have hotdogs! - Greg Universe, Steven Universe

Honestly, this one was just required to be my top #1 Greg quote.

8 "Earth is our home now. Isn't it worth fighting for?" - Peridot, Raising the Barn

Peridot has been really carefully developed in the series, and I appreciate that. I mean, back in season 1, nobody could even think of her saying something like that!

Peridot showed a really nice and loyal attitude there. If I were Lapis, there was NO WAY I would be able to leave after that one sentence.

Peridot has gone through so much, and I love that she has come so far.

9 "Earth… is a prison. And I got out because I’m better than this place. I only came back to finish you off. You can’t manipulate me Rose Quartz!..." - Jasper, Earthlings

"Earth… is a prison. And I got out because I'm better than this place. I only came back to finish you off. You can't manipulate me Rose Quartz!... I've been fighting since I broke free from the Earth's crust! Because of what you did to my colony, because of what you did to my planet, because of what you did to my Diamond! My Diamond... Your Diamond... Pink Diamond!"

It was Kimberly Brooks' amazing delivery that made this line especially amazing.

10 "Um... well... I-I did it on Earth, in front of Pink Diamond's palanquin." - Steven, The Trial
The Contenders
11 "Don't you raise your shield at me! I only want you to be yourself! If you can't do that I'll do it for you!" - White Diamond, Change Your Mind
12 "You're really gonna tell the Diamonds that you allowed a band of traitorous rebels to infiltrate a highly secure facility, and escape right under your careful watch?" - Pearl, That Will Be All

Let me finish: "Doesn't seem like a wise thing to do, Holly Blue. So do yourself a favor and keep your mouth shut." Pearl was going to make sure that she didn't get in trouble. I mean, she has been a criminal for over 6,000 years.

"You're really gonna tell the Diamonds that you allowed a band of traitorous rebels to infiltrate a highly secure facility, and escape right under your careful watch? Doesn't seem like a wise thing to do, Holly Blue. So do yourself a favor, and keep your mouth shut. That will be all."

13 "I don't know what Topaz would do if she didn't have Topaz. I've always wanted to tell me how I'm helping me through this, but there's always someone between us!" - Topaz, Stuck Together

"I don't know what Topaz would do if she didn't have Topaz. I've always wanted to tell me how I'm helping me through this, but there's always someone between us! They're always sending me on these miserable missions. I'm always pretending I'm fine with it. I have to pretend I'm fine. But you two -- you're so honest and open... so I wanna help you guys. What do you need?"

14 Sadie...? Do you ever get lonely... even when you're around people...? - Lars Barriga, Island Adventure

This quote is very important to me. I think it perfectly, if not very closely, resembles what it feels like to suffer from depression, as I do. Sometimes, you want to be completely alone, but not want to feel lonely. Lars is a character that I can greatly relate to, not just in terms of mental health, but also in terms of being an overall teenager with struggles.

Lars is basically every one of us.

15 Sleep is a curse, and yet a curse I need to live -Steven Universe, Steven Universe, Chille Tid
16 "Everyone calm down. Look. We can all see her. She's right there! She just can't reform because... she has this... baby around her." - Pearl, Three Gems and a Baby

"Everyone calm down. Look. We can all see her. She's right there! She just can't reform because... she has this... baby around her. Rose, I know you're in there. I can let you out. We'll be... together... again. I can't. I can't! She wanted this so much. I just... don't... understand... why! Everything should grow, and everything should change, and isn't it so great how it comes so naturally to humans? Well, it's not natural for us! It's not natural for me."

17 I don’t need you to respect me, I respect me. I don’t need you to love me, I love me. But I want you to know you could know me if you change your mind. - Steven Universe, Change Your Mind

"I don't need you to respect me, I respect me. I don't need you to love me, I love me. But I want you to know you could know me if you change your mind." - Steven Universe, Change Your Mind

This is the most beautiful quote ever and really shows self-love completely. It made me cry when I heard it.

18 "The rhythm has her!..." - Steven, Arcade Mania
19 Imma win a airplane! - Amethyst, Arcade Mania
20 Marry Me, Yellow - Blue Diamond
21 "Lars... I'm afraid right now. I thought if I turned myself in, it'd fix everything, but... I don't want to do this, Lars. I've been to space before, but not like this." - Steven, Stuck Together

"Lars... I'm afraid right now. I thought if I turned myself in, it'd fix everything, but... I don't want to do this, Lars. I've been to space before, but not like this. They're taking me straight to their terrible leaders that want to destroy Earth and destroy me for something I never even did. I just wanted to save everyone, but I couldn't even do that because, look - you're still here."

I love that Steven and Lars just gained a deeper understanding of each other from this quote.

22 "Stevonnie, listen to me. You are not two people. And you are not one person. You are an experience! Make sure you're a good experience. Now... Go!... Have!... Fun!" - Garnet, Alone Together
23 "You’re the one good thing that came out of this mess, I always thought you were proud of that." - Pearl, On the Run

This made me cry. I love that they did an episode around this.

One of the best quotes from Pearl.

24 If I'm not back in an hour, call the police. - Greg, keystone motel
25 Everything I ever did, I did for her. Now she’s gone, but I’m still here. Sometimes, I wonder if she can see me through your eyes. What would she think of me now? - Pearl, Rose’s Scabbard

I don't understand why this quote didn't get more votes. Sure, there are many amazing quotes in SU, but this one... This scene always makes me cry. Rose's Scabbard is one of my favorite episodes, if not my favorite.

I dunno, Pearl's my favorite character. Seeing her so desperate, sad, and lonely... Rose was her whole world, and she left, leaving Pearl with no purpose in life, lost and full of questions. This scene also shows Pearl's incredible development during the series. If we compare this scene to the end of the cartoon, where Pearl is finally happy and has found herself... I dunno, I just love Rose's Scabbard.
