Captain America: The First Avenger

Spoken by Johann Schmidt

"The Tesseract was the jewel of Odin's treasure room. It's not something one buries. But I think it is close, yes?"
―Johann Schmidt[src]
"Great power has always baffled primitive men. HYDRA is assembling an arsenal to destroy my enemies in one stroke, wherever they are, regardless of how many forces they possess, all in a matter of hours."
―Johann Schmidt[src]
"My weapons contain enough destructive power to decimate every hostile capital on Earth. Quite simply, gentlemen, I have harnessed the power of the gods."
―Johann Schmidt[src]

Spoken about Johann Schmidt

"Now Schmidt is a member of the inner circle and he is ambitious. He and Hitler share a passion for occult power and Teutonic myth. Hitler uses his fantasies to inspire his followers, but for Schmidt, it is not fantasy. For him, it is real."
Abraham Erskine to Steve Rogers[src]
"He thinks that he is a god and he is willing to blow up half the world to prove it."
Chester Phillips[src]

Dialogue

"You could have the power of the gods! Yet you wear a flag on your chest and think you fight a battle of nations! I have seen the future Captain! There are no flags!"
"Not in my future!"
―Red Skull and Captain America[src]

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Avengers: Infinity War

Dialogue

"Welcome Thanos, son of Alars. Gamora, daughter of Thanos."
"You know us?"
"It is my curse to know all who journey here."
"Where is the Soul Stone?"
"You should know, it extracts a terrible price."
"I am prepared."
"We all think that at first. We are all wrong."
―Red Skull and Thanos[src]
"How is it you know this place so well?"
"A lifetime ago, I too sought the stones. I even held one in my hand. But it cast me out, banished me here, guiding others to a treasure I can not possess."
Thanos and Red Skull[src]
"What you seek lies in front of you. As does what you fear."
"What's this?"
"The price. Soul holds a special place among the Infinity Stones. You might say, it is a certain wisdom."
"Tell me what it needs."
"To ensure that whoever possesses it, understands its power. The stone demands a sacrifice."
"Of what?"
"In order to take the stone, you must lose that which you love. A soul for a soul."
Red Skull, Gamora and Thanos[src]
"All my life I dreamed of a day, a moment, when you got what you deserved. And I was always so disappointed. But now, you kill and torture and you call it mercy. The universe has judged you. You asked it for a prize and it told you no. You failed. And do you wanna know why? Because you love nothing. No one. Really, tears?"
"They are not for him."
"No. This isn't love."
"I ignored my destiny once, I can not do that again. Even for you. I'm sorry Gamora."
"No!"
Gamora, Red Skull and Thanos[src]
