"The serum amplifies everything that is inside, so good becomes great; bad becomes worse. This is why you were chosen. Because the strong man who has known power all his life, may lose respect for that power, but a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows... compassion."
"I got beat up in that alley. And that parking lot. And behind that diner." "Did you have something against running away?" "You start running they'll never let you stop. You stand up, push back... Can't say no forever right?"
"So, let's get this straight." "We barely got out of there alive, and you want us to go back?" "Pretty much." "Sounds rather fun, actually." "Hell, I'll always fight. But you got to do one thing for me." "What's that?" "Open a tab."
"Arrogance may not be a uniquely American trait, but I must say you do it better than anyone. But there are limits to what even you can do, Captain, or did Erskine tell you otherwise?" "He told me you were insane." "Ah. He resented my genius and tried to deny me what was rightfully mine, but he gave you everything. So, what made you so special?" "Nothing. I'm just a kid from Brooklyn."
"Right now I'm in the middle of nowhere. If I wait any longer a lot of people are gonna die. Peggy... this is my choice. Peggy... " "I'm here." "I'm gonna need a rain check on that dance." "Alright. A week next Saturday at the Stork Club." "You got it." "Eight o'clock on the dot. Don't you dare be late. Understood?" "You know I still don't know how to dance." "I'll show you how. Just be there." "We'll have the band play something slow. I'd hate to step on your..." "Steve? Steve? Steve?"
―Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter using the communicators during Steve's descent into the ice[src]
"At ease, soldier!" "Who are you?" "Colonel Nick Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. You would have known us as the Strategic Scientific Reserve." "Where am I?" "46th and Broadway. I'm sorry about that little show back there, but we didn't know what your mental state might be, so we thought it best to break it to you slowly." "Break what?" "You've been asleep, Cap. For almost 70 years." "How am I alive?" "Well, to be honest with you, we don't really know. My docs say it was suspended animation. Could be Dr. Erskine's formula, the extreme cold. I don't know." "What about the war? Did we win?" "Hell, yes. Unconditional surrender. Taking down HYDRA was a big part of that. But the world hasn't changed all that much. There's still a lot of work to be done. A soldier's work. The world can still use a man like you, Cap. There's a place here for you."
"Uh... we've made some modifications to the uniform. I had a little design input." "The uniform? Aren't the stars and stripes a little... old fashioned?" "With everything that's happening, the things that are about to come to light, people might just need a little old fashioned."
"Yeah. Big man in a suit of armor. Take that off, what are you?" "Genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist." "I know guys with none of that and worth ten of you. I've seen the footage. The only thing that you really fight for is yourself. You're not the guy to make the sacrifice play. To lay down on the wire and let the other guy crawl over you." "I think I would just cut the wire." "Always a way out. You know you may not be a threat but you better stop pretending to be a hero." "A hero? Like you? Your a laboratory experiment, Rogers. Everything special about you came out of a bottle."
"Call it, Captain!" "Alright, listen up. Until we can close that portal, our priority's containment. Barton, I want you on that roof, eyes on everything. Call out patterns and strays. Stark, you got the perimeter. Anything gets more than three blocks out, you turn it back or you turn it to ash." "Want to give me a lift?" "Right. Better clench up, Legolas." "Thor, you gotta try and bottleneck that portal. Slow 'em down. You got the lightning. Light the bastards up. You and me, we stay here on the ground, keep the fighting here. And Hulk? Smash!"
"Oh this is much better, whew! Costume's a bit much. So tight. But with confidence, I can feel the righteousness surging! Hey, wanna have a rousing discussion about truth? Honor? Patriotism? God bless Ameri-"
"For as long as I can remember, I just wanted to do what was right. I guess I'm not quite sure what that is anymore. And I thought I could throw myself back in: follow orders, serve. It's just not the same."
"Attention all S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, this is Steve Rogers. You've heard a lot about me over the last few days. Some of you were even ordered to hunt me down. But I think it's time to know the truth. S.H.I.E.L.D. is not what we thought it was. It's been taken over by HYDRA. Alexander Peirce is their leader. The S.T.R.I.K.E. and Insight crew are HYDRA as well. I don't know how many more, but I know they're in the building. They could be standing right next to you. They almost have what they want: absolute control. They shot Nick Fury, and it won't end there. If you launch those Helicarriers today HYDRA will be able to kill anyone that stands in their way... unless we stop them. And I know I'm asking a lot. The price of freedom is high, it always has been. And it's a price I'm willing to pay. And if I'm the only one, then so be it. But I'm willing to bet I'm not."
"Ultron knows we're coming. Odds are we'll be riding into heavy fire. And that's what we signed up for. But the people of Sokovia, they didn't. So our priority is getting them out. All they want is to live their lives in peace. And that's not gonna happen today. But we can do our best to protect them. And we can get the job done. We find out what Ultron's been building, we find Romanoff, and we clear the field. Keep the fight between us. Ultron thinks we're monsters. That we're what's wrong with the world. This isn't just about beating him. It's about whether he's right."
"Baron Strucker. HYDRA's number one thug." "Technically, I'm a thug for S.H.I.E.L.D." "Well, then technically you're unemployed. Where's Loki's Scepter?" "Don't worry, I know when I'm beat. You'll mention how I cooperated, I hope." "I'll put it right under illegal human experimentation."
"The two Enhanced?" "Wanda and Pietro Maximoff. Twins. Orphaned at 10 when a shell collapsed their apartment building. Sokovia's had a rough history. It's nowhere special, but it's on the way to everywhere special." "Their abilities?" "He's got increased metabolism and improved thermal homeostasis. Her thing is neuroelectric interfacing, telekinesis, mental manipulation. He's fast and she's weird." "Well, they're gonna show up again." "Agreed. File says they volunteered for Strucker's experiments. It's nuts." "Right. What kind of monster would let a German scientist experiment on them to protect their country?" "We're not at war, Captain." "They are."
""Earth's mightiest heroes." He pulled us apart like cotton candy." "Seems like you walked away all right." "Is that a problem?" "I don't trust a guy without a dark side. Call me old-fashioned." "Well, let's just say you haven't seen it yet." "You know Ultron is trying to tear us apart, right?" "Well, I guess you'd know. Whether you'd tell us is a bit of a question." "Banner and I were doing research." "That would affect the team." "That would end the team! Isn't that the mission? Isn't that the "Why We Fight"? So we can end the fight. So we get to go home!" "Every time someone tries to win a war before it starts, innocent people die. Every time."
"Maybe I should take a page out of Barton's book. Build Pepper a farm, hope nobody blows it up." "The simple life." "You'll get there one day." "I don't know. Family, stability... The guy who wanted all that went in the ice 75 years ago. I think someone else came out." "You all right?" "I'm home."
"I’m glad you’re back at the compound, I don’t like the idea of you rattling around a mansion by yourself. We all need family. The Avengers are yours, maybe more so than mine. I’ve been on my own since I was 18. I never really fit in anywhere – even in the Army. My faith is in people, I guess. Individuals. And I’m happy to say for the most part, they haven’t let me down. Which is why I can’t let them down either. Locks can be replaced, but – maybe they shouldn’t. I know I hurt you Tony. I guess I thought – by not telling you about yourparents I was sparing you, but... I can see now I was really sparing myself. I’m sorry. Hopefully one day you can understand. I wish we agreed on the Accords, I really do. I know you were only doing what you believe in, and that’s all any of us can do, it’s all any of us should. So no matter what, I promise if you -- if you need us. If you need me, I’ll be there."
"Tony, if someone dies on your watch, you don't give up." "Who said we're giving up?" "We are if we're not taking responsibility for our actions. This document just shifts the blame." "I'm sorry, Steve, that... that is dangerously arrogant. This is the United Nations we're talking about. It's not the World Security Council. It's not S.H.I.E.L.D.. It's not HYDRA-" "No, but it's run by people with agendas and agendas change." "That's good! That's why I'm here. When I realized what my weapons were capable of in the wrong hands, I shut it down and stopped manufacturing." "Tony, you chose to do that. If we sign this, we surrender our right to chose. What if this panel sends us somewhere we don't think we should go? What if there's somewhere we need to go and they don't let us? We may not be perfect, but the safest hands are still our own." "If we don't do this now, it's gonna be done to us later."
"What happens when the shooting starts, let them kill Steve Rogers? If we are provoked. Barnes would have been eliminate in Romania if it wasn't for Rogers. There are dead people who would be alive now. Feel free to check my math."
"Captain America." "Mr. Lang." "It's an honor. I'm shaking your hand too long. Wow, this is awesome! Captain America. I know you too, your great. Jeez. Look, I wanna say, I know you know a lot of super-people so... thinks for thanking of me."
"What's gonna happen to your friends?" "Whatever it is, I'll deal with it." "I don't know if I'm worth all this, Steve." "What you did all those years... It wasn't you. You didn't have a choice." "I know. But I did it."
"You remember that time we had to ride back from Rockaway Beach in the back of that freezer truck?" "Was that the time we used our train money to buy hot dogs?" "You blew 3 bucks trying to win that stuffed bear for a redhead." "What was her name again?" "Dolores. You called her Dot." "She's got to be a hundred years old by now." "So are we, pal."
"You seem a little defensive." "It's been a long day." "At ease, soldier. I'm not currently after you." "Then why are you here?" "Maybe your story is not so crazy." "Maybe." "Ross has no idea I'm here, I'd like to keep it that way. Otherwise, I got to arrest myself." "Well, that sounds like a lot of paperwork. It's good to see you, Tony." "You too, Cap."
"Now, what was the problem?" "As I said before, this device has a high-frequency, fluctuating, sub-material compression --" "Fitz, in English." "The 0-8-4 is fueled by Tesseract technology. HYDRA. World War II. Captain America. It's full of lethal amounts of Gamma Radiation."
"You need a simpler name. A more powerful name. A name like Scorch." "Scorch? Are you joking?" "Have you ever heard of Steve Rogers? No? But Captain America-- now he's on the news, on a lunch box, on a poster on the wall."
"Fury is not dead." "What?" "Yeah, HYDRA thinks they killed him, but he managed to escape from D.C." "So you just lied to my team." "Well, I don't know them. And those are Fury's direct orders. Only a select few people can know that he's alive Maria Hill, Cap, a couple of others, and now you and me."
"You want to hack the NSA? That's a bad idea, Skye. That's a terrible idea. The NSA's already got S.H.I.E.L.D. on its watch list. Why poke the bear the big, scary, waterboarding bear?" "Ohh! I thought you were a comms agent, not agent of playing video games while hiding in a bunker." "You can't goad me into..." "Can you help me convince Steve Rogers here to suit up, grab his shield, head into battle?"
"So maybe if you can learn to control this, then you could have Avengers-level powers, something like Captain America, even." "I think it best we keep in mind the unstable nature of Skye's power. If there is an Avenger equivalent, right now I'm afraid it's the Hulk." "Well, Hulk saved the world, last I checked."
"I haven't fully sequenced the formula yet, if only for the multitude of trace drugs found, but my initial list includes anabolic-androgenic steroids, a liver enzyme blocker, various metabolic enhancers, methamphetamines, what appears to be gorilla testosterone, and no lie a drop of peppermint. I think it's an ill-conceived attempt at super strength." "Other than Cap, every attempt has been ill-conceived."
"The world fears our kind of power because not everyone has it. Only billionaires can build iron suits. Only the military can make super soldiers, which can only lead to a war of its own, whereas I plan to apply a more, uh, collectivist philosophy."
"Still no word on the whereabouts of Steve Rogers after his public feud with Tony Stark and the Avengers over the controversial Sokovia Accords. Ratified by 117 countries, the Accords place the Avengers under U.N. authority and provide a framework for the registration and monitoring of all Enhanced Individuals."
"When you stepped down, you told the President you didn't want to be the face of the Agency." "For a whole host of reasons." "And you said we needed a new face. And now that Steve Rogers went AWOL, you wanted a hero." "I said the new Director should be a powered person the public could trust. And they came up with you."
"I saw my mother crushed to death under a building that you people destroyed." "In the incident?" "I was trying to pull my mother out from the rubble, watching her bleed to death, while all around me, you people were raining down hell." "So go after the big green guy or the flag-waver."
"The financial cost of the cleanup effort in Washington, D.C., New York City and Sokovia has crossed the trillion dollar mark. Critics and politicians both domestic and internationally, suggest Steve Rogers, Tony Stark and others bear some of the responsibilities for the massive destruction and mayhem."
"We've experienced a series of grave events that have had severe repercussions. I am completely sensitive to the fear and concern that creates. But at the same time, I recognize what men like Tony Stark, Steve Rogers and others have done in the face of these attacks."
"I wouldn't mind hearing from our heroes directly, as they're the ones who've seen first hand what government oversight can lead to." "I can't believe I'm about to say this, but I totally agree with you." "Yes, let's get Tony Stark in here. It's probably more difficult to get than President Ellis unfortunately." "I would take Captain America as well."
