Spoken by Peggy Carter

"Faster, ladies! Come on! My grandmother has more life in her, God rest her soul. Move it!"
―Peggy Carter[src]

Spoken about Peggy Carter

Dialogue

"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."
―Peggy Carter and Steve Rogers[src]

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

―Peggy Carter to Steve Rogers[src]

Spoken about Peggy Carter

Dialogue

"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."
―Peggy Carter and Steve Rogers[src]

Captain America: Civil War

Spoken about Peggy Carter

"She's gone. In her sleep."
―A text message received by Steve Rogers[src]
"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'.""
Sharon Carter[src]

"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?"

"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."
―Peggy Carter and Edwin Jarvis[src]
"Where are you?"
"Just keep driving!"
"Could you be slightly more specific?"
"No!"(Carter leaps atop the car)
"Miss Carter!"
"Go, go!"
"Don't you want to get in?!"
Edwin Jarvis and Peggy Carter[src]
"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."

Dialogue

"So, I've got two foreign agents with no voice boxes fighting over a milk truck full of experimental implosives."
"Just another day at the office."
―Peggy Carter and Edwin Jarvis[src]
"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."
―Peggy Carter and Edwin Jarvis[src]

"...Won't be a moment."
―Peggy Carter and Edwin Jarvis[src]
"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."
Edwin Jarvis and Peggy Carter[src]

Episode 1.03: Time and Tide

Dialogue

"What brings you here?"

Episode 1.04: The Blitzkrieg Button

Dialogue

"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."
―Peggy Carter and Howard Stark[src]
"All of my inventions are in your lab."
"Then why is your mustache so sad?"
Howard Stark and Peggy Carter[src]
"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."
Howard Stark and Peggy Carter[src]

Episode 1.05: The Iron Ceiling

Dialogue

"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."
―Peggy Carter and Dottie Underwood[src]
"What would Cap say if I left his best girl behind?"
"He'd say "Do as Peggy says"."
Dum Dum Dugan and Peggy Carter[src]
"He can be thoughtless. Inconsiderate. Vain. Childish. Unreliable. Arrogant."
"You flatter him."
Edwin Jarvis and Peggy Carter[src]
"Does anyone else feel a chill going up their knickers?"
"I would if I wore knickers."
―Peggy Carter and Junior Juniper[src]
"Wahoo!"
"Stop wahooing and help!"
Dum Dum Dugan and Peggy Carter[src]
"Not bad. For a girl."
"(Smiling) I hate you all."
Ivchenko and Peggy Carter[src]
"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."
Dum Dum Dugan and Peggy Carter[src]

Dialogue

"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."
―Peggy Carter and Edwin Jarvis[src]

Spoken by Peggy Carter

"To you, I’m a stray kitten left on your doorstep to be protected. The secretary turned damsel in distress. The girl on the pedestal, transformed into some daft whore."
―Peggy Carter[src]
"And I suppose the confession portrays me as what? A patsy? A doe-eyed idiot succumbed to the charms of America’s mustachioed Casanova?"

―Peggy Carter[src]

Edwin Jarvis and Peggy Carter[src]
