  • As all Marvel fans know, Groot is a character who's more about action than he is about talk.

  • Possessing only a handful of words in his vocabulary that can be understood by humans,

  • the tree-like superhero hasn't said much else other than "I am Groot" and "we are Groot"

  • throughout his time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

  • Of course, each line apparently has a translation.

  • "I am Groot."

  • "Whoa!"

  • "Language!"

  • "Hey!"

  • "Wow."

  • "Got some acorns on you, kid."

  • For example, James Gunn revealed that Groot's final line to Rocket Raccoon just before crumbling

  • into space dust in Avengers: Infinity War translated to, quote, "dad," because that

  • ending wasn't sad enough already.

  • And now, keeping up with what seems like a new tradition, Marvel gave Groot another intriguing

  • final line in Avengers: Endgame.

  • Directors Joe and Anthony Russo revealed what the talking tree-boy said at the very end

  • of Avengers: Endgame when they spoke in a Q&A session following a screening of the superhero

  • ensemble at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.

  • A Reddit user who was in attendance detailed the Russos' answers to nearly two dozen questions,

  • one of which regarded Groot and the final words he uttered in Endgame.

  • The last place fans saw Groot in Avengers: Endgame was aboard the spaceship Benatar,

  • watching as Star-Lord and Thor have a friendly-but-maybe-not-so-friendly squabble.

  • The two heroes exchange some jabs that they pass off as jokes before Drax the Destroyer

  • chimes in and suggests they "fight one another for the honor of leadership."

  • After the other Guardians voice their support for a knife fight, the camera then pans over

  • to Groot, who smiles and says, "I am Groot."

  • According to the Russo brothers, that line genuinely means something: it translates from

  • Groot's native language into English as, quote, "Yes, I like knives."

  • So, there you have it: the entire Guardians of the Galaxy squad wants Star-Lord and Thor

  • to settle their differences in a down-and-dirty knife fight, including little Groot.

  • "He likes to play with knives.

  • Very well.

  • We shall indulge him."

  • While Groot's final line in Avengers: Endgame isn't nearly as significant as the last word

  • he said in Avengers: Infinity War, that doesn't mean the phrase is completely without meaning

  • in its own regard.

  • Groot's last Endgame line leaves things with the Guardians of the Galaxy on a happy, silly

  • note which, in turn, establishes the tone for the next entry in the team's film trilogy.

  • Groot joining in on the banter with the rest of the gang proves that the Guardians are

  • back in good spirits after Thanos' original Decimation in 2018 and the reverse-Snap Professor

  • Hulk executed in Endgame.

  • The team may be without Gamora, who got tossed over a cliff on Vormir so her dad could get

  • a rock.

  • But they've finally reassembled and are ready to locate their missing member.

  • This last sequence for the Guardians in Endgame teases that they may go on a search for Gamora

  • in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which would probably benefit from having Thor in tow,

  • so long as he and Star-Lord can squash the beef between themas unlikely as that seems

  • at the moment.

  • "You know Thor?"

  • "Yeah, tall guy, not that good looking, needed saving."

  • It will be interesting to see how the god of thunder and the lord of dance get on in

  • the third Guardians movie.

  • Will their apparent rivalry dissipate before it gets out of hand?

  • Or will it continue to grow until they have no choice but to sharpen their knives for

  • a one-on-one fight, thus satisfying the twisted wishes of the rest of the team in the process?

  • Star-Lord may have the advantage of his sweet dance moves to shimmy and shake around the

  • hammer-wielding hero, and knowing Quill, he might even play by Butch Cassidy rules.

  • "Rules?!

  • In a knife fight?

  • No rules!"

  • "Well, if there ain't gonna be any rules, let's get the fight started.

  • Somebody count one, two, three, go."

  • "One, two, three go!"

  • On the other hand, Thor is a god who can summon literal lightning.

  • If the two were ever to really turn their verbal stabs into literal ones, Thor would

  • probably end up winning you know, as long as he goes for the head.
