Spoken by Hank Pym

―Hank Pym to Scott Lang[src]
"Before Hope lost her mother, she used to look at me like I was the greatest man in the world. And now she looks at me and it's just disappointment."
―Hank Pym about Hope van Dyne[src]
"This is your chance. To earn that look in your daughter's eyes. To become the hero that she already thinks you are. It's not about saving our world, it's about saving theirs. Scott, I need you to be the Ant-Man."
―Hank Pym[src]
"You've learned about the suit, but you've yet to learn about your greatest allies, the Ants. Loyal, brave, and your partners on this job."

Spoken about Hank Pym

"You know when my mother died I didn't see him for two weeks?"
"He was in grief."
"Yeah, so was I, and I was seven. And he never came back, not in any way that counted. He just sent me off to boarding school."
Hope van Dyne and Scott Lang[src]


"He doesn't seem happy. Hello, Hank. You're supposed to be in Moscow."
"I took a detour... Through your defence lab."
"Tell me that isn't what I think it is."
"That depends if you think it's a poor attempt to replicate my work. Even for this group, that takes nerve."
"You were instructed to go to Russia. May I remind you, Doctor Pym, that you're a soldier..."
"I'm a scientist."
"Then act like one. The Pym Particle is the most revolutionary science ever developed. Help us put it to good work."
"I let you turned me into your errand boy, and now you try to steal my research?"
"If only you'd protected Janet with such ferocity, Doctor Pym."
"Easy, Hank!"
"You mention my wife again, and I'll show you ferocity."
"Don't look at me. You said it."
Hank Pym, Howard Stark, Peggy Carter and Mitchell Carson[src]
"May I remind you, Dr. Pym, that you’re a soldier..."
"I’m a scientist."
Mitchell Carson and Hank Pym[src]
"I formally tender my resignation."
"We don’t accept it. Formally. Hank, we need you. The Pym Particle is a miracle. Please, don’t let your past determine the future."
"As long as I am alive, nobody will ever get that formula."
―Hank Pym and Howard Stark[src]
"Darren, there’s a reason that I buried these secrets."
"So you finally admit it. We could’ve done this together, Hank. But you ruined that. That's why you're the past and I'm the future."
―Hank Pym and Darren Cross[src]
"I took on a young protégé called Darren Cross."
"Darren Cross. He’s a big deal."
"But before he was a big deal he was my assistant."
―Hank Pym and Scott Lang[src]
"You know, I think this regulator is holding me back."
"Do not screw with the regulator. If that regulator is compromised, you would go subatomic."
"What does that mean?"
"It means that you would enter a Quantum Realm."
"What does that mean?"
"It means that you would enter a reality where all concepts of time and space become irrelevant as you shrink for all eternity. Everything that you know and love, gone forever."
"Cool. Yeah, if it ain't broke..."
Scott Lang and Hank Pym[src]
"I knew I had to shrink between the molecules to disarm the missile, but my regulator had sustained too much damage. Your mother, she didn’t hesitate."
―Hank Pym about Janet van Dyne[src]
