The Avengers

Spoken about Thanos

"The Tesseract has awakened. It is on a little world, a Human world. They would wield its power, but our ally knows its workings as they never will. He is ready to lead, and our force, our Chitauri, will follow. The world will be his, the universe will be yours. And the humans, what can they do, but burn?"
The Other to Thanos[src]
"You will have your war, Asgardian. If you fail, if the Tesseract is kept from us, there will be no realm, no barren moon, no crevice where he can't find you. You think you know pain? He will make you long for something as sweet as pain."
The Other describing Thanos' wrath[src]
"Humans. They are not the cowering wretches we were promised. They stand. They are unruly, and therefore cannot be ruled. To challenge them is to court...Death."
The Other telling Thanos of Loki's failure[src]

Guardians of the Galaxy

Spoken about Thanos

"Master, you cannot! Thanos is the most powerful being in the universe!"
"Not anymore."
Korath and Ronan.[src]

Dialogue

"I only ask that you take this matter seriously."
"The only matter I do not take seriously, boy, is you. Your politics bore me. Your demeanor is that of a pouty child. And apparently, you alienated my favorite daughter, Gamora. I shall honor our agreement, Kree, if you bring me the Orb. But return to me again empty handed... And I will bathe the starways in your blood."
Ronan the Accuser and Thanos[src]
"BOY! I would reconsider your current course!"
"YOU CALL ME "BOY"?! I will unfurl one thousand years of Kree justice on Xandar AND BURN IT TO ITS CORE!! Then, Thanos, I'm coming for you!"
―Thanos and Ronan the Accuser[src]

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Spoken by Thanos

"Fine. I'll do it myself."
―Thanos retrieves the Infinity Gauntlet[src]

Avengers: Infinity War

Spoken by Thanos

"I know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right, yet to fail nonetheless. It’s frightening. Turns the legs to jelly. I ask you, to what end? Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives all the same. And now, it's here. Or should I say, I am."
―Thanos[src]
"You have my respect, Stark. When I'm done, half of humanity will still be alive. I hope they remember you."
―Thanos to Iron Man[src]
"You should have gone for the head."
―Thanos to Thor[src]

Promotional

"Fun isn't something one considers when balancing the universe. But this... does put a smile on my face."
―Thanos[src]

Spoken about Thanos

"The entire time I knew Thanos, he only ever had one goal: To wipe out half the universe. If he gets all the Infinity Stones... he can do it with the snap of his fingers, just like that."
Gamora[src]
"Thanos is coming."
Bruce Banner[src]
Promotional
"Death follows him like a shadow."
Mantis[src]

Dialogue

"What's wrong, little one?"
"My mother. Where is my mother?"
"What's your name?"
"Gamora."
"You're a great fighter, Gamora. Come. Let me help you."
―Thanos and Gamora[src]
"I hate that chair."
"So I’ve been told. Even so, I’d hope you would sit in it one day."
"I hated this room. This ship. I hated my life."
"You told me that too. Every day. For almost 20 years."
"I was a child when you took me."
"I saved you."
"No, no, we were happy on my home planet."
"Going to bed hungry. Scrounging for scraps. Your planet was on the brink of collapse. I was the one who stopped that. You know what’s happened since then? The children born have known nothing but full bellies and clear skies. It’s a paradise."
"Because you murdered half the planet!"
"A small price to pay for salvation."
"You’re insane."
"Little one, it’s a simple calculus. This universe is finite, its resources, finite… if life is left unchecked, life will cease to exist. It needs correcting."
"YOU DON’T KNOW THAT!"
"I’m the only one who knows that. At least I’m the only who has the will to act on it. For a time, you had that same will. As you fought by my side, daughter."
"I’m not your daughter. Everything I hate about myself, you taught me."
"And in doing so, made you the fiercest woman in the Galaxy."
Gamora and Thanos[src]
"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 cannot 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."
"No."
"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, Little One."
"No!"
Gamora, Thanos and Red Skull[src]
"Oh, yeah. You're much more of a Thanos."
"I take it that Maw is dead? This day extracts a heavy toll. Still, he accomplished his mission."
"You may regret that. He brought you face-to-face with a Master of the Mystic Arts."
"Where do you think he brought you?"
"Let me guess. Your home?"
"It was. And it was beautiful. Titan was like most planets. Too many mouths, not enough to go around. And when we faced extinction, I offered a solution."
"Genocide?"
"At random. Dispassionate, fair. The rich and poor alike. And they called me a madman. And what I predicted, came to pass."
"Congratulations. You're a prophet."
"I'm a survivor."
"Who wants to murder trillions."
"With all six Stones, I could simply snap my fingers. They would all cease to exist. I call that... mercy."
"And then what?"
"I finally rest. And watch the sun rise on a grateful universe. The hardest choices require the strongest wills."
Doctor Strange and Thanos[src]
"He mourns."
"What does this monster have to mourn?"
"Gamora. He took her to Vormir. He came back with the Soul Stone, she didn't."
"Okay, Quill, you gotta cool it right now, you understand? Don't, don't engage, we almost got this off!"
"Tell me she's lying. Asshole! Tell me you didn't do it."
"I had to."
"No, you didn't. No, you din't."
Mantis, Drax the Destroyer, Nebula, Iron Man, Star-Lord and Thanos[src]
"Stark."
"You know me?"
"I do. You're not the only one cursed with knowledge."
"My only curse is you."
―Thanos and Iron Man[src]
"Daughter."
"Did you do it?"
"Yes."
"What did it cost?"
"Everything."
Gamora and Thanos[src]

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
