"I'll-I'll get Howard on the line. He'll know what to do." "There's not enough time. This thing's moving too fast and it's heading for New York. I gotta put her in the water." "Please don't do this. W-we have time. We can work it out."
"What is it?" "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." "You were always so dramatic. Look, you saved the world. We rather mucked it up." "You didn't. Knowing you helped found S.H.I.E.L.D. is half the reason I stayed." "The world has changed, and none of us can go back. All we can do is our best, and sometimes, the best that we can do, is to start over."
"Margaret Carter was known to most as the founder of S.H.I.E.L.D.. But I just know her as Aunt Peggy. She had a photograph in her office: Aunt Peggy standing next to JFK. As a kid that was pretty cool. But it was a lot to live up to, which is why I never told anyone we were related. I asked her once how she managed to master diplomacy and espionage at a time when no one wanted to see a woman succeed at either. And she said "Compromise where you can. Where you can't, don't. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye, and say 'No, you move'.""
"These assets are now under the protection of the Strategic Scientific Reserve. They'll be relocated and hidden out of sight, indefinitely, as will you." "Cut off one head, two more shall grow in its place." "Then I guess we'll keep cutting them off."
"It's true, I wanted to find out what kind of a man you were. You didn't use the pen. So, now I know." "Pens are also used for signatures." "You want a deal. How terribly shocking." "The US Government has recruited many German scientists."
"Kinda thing might really catch a man's eye...say, on a date?" "Well don't hold your breath. Especially with tuberculosis." "You know there's a difference between being an independent woman, and a spinster." "Is it the shoes? Clock out, pull the curtains, and sleep. Peggy's orders."
"I wonder if I might request a sick day." "What's the matter? Got a headache?" "Amongst other things. Ladies' things." "Oh, geez. Yeah, sure, take the day. Go shopping, whatever makes you feel better." "Thank you for your understanding."
"I saw him once at a U.S.O. shown in Passaic. You could eat him with a spoon." "Yes, I understand he was quite something." "Everything all right, English?" "Fine actually, if you don't count work." "Boys at the phone company giving you a hard time?" "No more than usual, it's just... During the war, I had a sense of purpose. Responsibility. Now I connect the calls, but I never get a chance to make them."
"Really?" "I'm just considering all the angles. It seems you have a lot of them." "Now that's the Peggy Carter I need." "For what?" "To clear my name." "You can't be serious." "I'll try not to be. But sometimes it just slips out."
"Keep your eyes open." "But I'm coming with you." "Mr. Jarvis... That cook with the spoons, Was she large woman? Violent?" "Well, no she was quite diminutive actually, but she had a vicious tongue and extremely long... Fingernails."
"I understand you're not happy with your meal." "You work here?" "Unfortunately, no. (Presses a fork into his side) Just to be clear, this is pressed into your brachial artery, it may be dull but I'm determined. Keep smiling. Once you start to bleed, you'll lose conciousness in fifteen seconds, you'll die in ninety unless someone comes to your aid. Now given your recent behavior, how likely do you think that is to happen? To prevent this not entirely unfortunate event from occurring, I suggest you find another place to eat. Do we understand each other?" "Yeah!" "Good. Oh, And one more thing... tip generously."
"I seem to have a habit of losing people closest to me. Perhaps "losing" is too nice a word. I get them killed." "Miss Carter..." "When Howard came to me, I was damn happy to see him. I'd been wallowing in it since the war, wondering why no one would give Agent Peggy Carter a shot. So I grabbed the chance. But I mucked it up. And now Colleen is dead... because of me."
"I don't have long so listen very carefully. I need you to dispose of Howard's car." "I beg your pardon?" "The SSR are looking into Roxxon at this very moment. That car sustained damage at the site, and it's likely to be teeming with vita radiation. Make it disappear." "Very well. Let's see, the linens come out of the wash in thirty minutes..." "Now." "Fine. I shall forego the linens."
"You're very fortunate that I ignored your instructions." "(Sarcastic) Oh, you're so right. How I managed to stay alive before I met you, I have no idea." "I can't tell if you're being arrogant... or ignorant." "Both, I imagine." "Your line of work requires support. People who care about your wellbeing, who will be there to stitch up your wounds." "If I allow people to get close to me, I'm putting them in danger." "So your solution is to remove yourself from the world you wish to protect. Where's the sense in that? There is not a man or woman, no matter how fit he or she may be, who is capable of carrying the entire world on their shoulders." "Steve was." "From what Mr. Stark has told me, Captain Rogers relied heavily on you. For courage, strategy, and moral guidance. You were his support. Your desire to help others is noble, but I doubt you'll find much success unless you allow others to help you."
"Get in." "What? I hate small spaces. What if the chain snaps and I fall to my death?" "Don't worry. I'll never reveal that Howard Stark's dead body is lying rotting in the bottom of a dumbwaiter shaft."
"What the hell do you think of me?" "I think you're a man out for his own gain no matter who you're charging. You are constantly finding holes to slither your way into in the hope of finding loose change, only to cry when you're bitten by another snake. You're a man who says "I love you" whilst looking over a woman's shoulder into the mirror. Steve Rogers dedicated his mind, his body, his life to the SSR and to this country, not to your bank account. I made the same pledge, but I'm not as good as Steve was. I forgot my pledge running around for you like a corporate spy. So thank you, Howard, for reminding me who Steve was and what I aspire to be. For all I know, you did steal your inventions."
"If you want to get to know New York--if you want to get know any place, you have to start with the people first." "I talk to people." "Real people with real jobs. Not the, uh, phony, superficial ones that pervade the city. Uh, you should start with Brooklyn first." "But I-I'd rather see the Statue of Liberty." "Oh, she'll still be there. But what she represents, the spirit of Lady Liberty, is founded is found in its people." "Wow. You sounded like Captain America just now." "That's not a bad thing."
"You sure you wanna get on that plane? Commandos could always use another good fighter. We just need to come up with a nickname for you." "Tempting, but I think it's time I put my days on the front lines behind me. Someone needs to mind the wheel back in the States. And I suppose someone needs to convince the SSR of Howard's innocence, wanker or not. I'll miss you." "Miss you, too, Peg. Wait a second. Miss you... Miss Union Jack! Whaddya think, fellas? Huh?" "Never speak again." "Okay."
"How could he possibly meet this many women?" "The Academy Awards is a very busy time... What are you doing?" "A large portion of the women on this list are well known actresses, models and socialites. Publicly established for several years. They can be disregarded." "Well, I wouldn't dismiss her." "You think Ginger Rogers is a Russian assassin?" "You should have seen her eyes when I escorted her from Mr. Stark's villa. (His voice darkens) The darkest gates to the abyss."
"Mr. Jarvis, how would you feel if we smashed that mirror with this table?" "I would feel splendid about it." "Alright, we pick it up, and then on the count of three--" "Battering ram. Ready? One... Two... Wait. What if there are people behind this mirror that we're breaking?" "Then they may get hurt, there'll be a spray of glass." "I see. One... Two... Wait! What if those hypothetical people behind the mirror have guns?" "Then we may get hurt, there'll be a spray of bullets." "I see. One... Two... Three!(The two break the mirror) No people. Everybody wins." "I've just thought of something." "We're still attached to a table." "We are still attached to a table."
"Howard... I know you loved him. I loved him, too. But this won't bring him back. Howard, you are the one person on this earth who believes in me. I cannot lose you. Steve is gone. We have to move on--all of us. As impossible as that may sound, we have to let him go."
