  • Listen again, Were you correct?

  • So we're saving the galaxy again.

  • We're really gonna be able to jack up prices for two time galaxy savers.

  • Jack up our price means to increase prices.

  • It is a common saying in American English.

  • The superhero says that if they save the galaxy for a second time, then the team can charge more for their services in riel life.
