Steve Rogers: Why me?
Dr. Abraham Erskine: I suppose that is the only question that matters.

[to Steve]
Dr. Abraham Erskine: So many people forget that the first country that the Nazi's invaded was their own. You know, after the last war people struggled. They...they felt weak. They felt small. And then Hitler comes along with the marching and the big show and the flags and the...and the...
[he waves his hand]
Dr. Abraham Erskine: And he...he hears of me, my work and he finds me. And he says, you...he says you will us strong. Well, I am not interested. So he sends the head of Hydra, his research division. A brilliant scientist by the name of Johann Schmidt. Now, Schmidt is a member of the inner circle and he's ambitious. He and Hitler share a passion for a cult power and Teutonic myth. Hitler uses his fantasies to inspire his followers. But for Schmidt it is not fantasy. For him, it is real. He has become convinced that there is a great power in the earth, left there by the Gods, waiting to be seized by a superior man. So when he hears about my formula and what it can do, he cannot resist.

[flashback of how Schmidt takes Erskine's formula and injects himself with it]
Dr. Abraham Erskine: Schmidt must become that superior man.
Steve Rogers: Did it make him stronger?
Dr. Abraham Erskine: Yeah. But, there were other effects. The serum was not ready. But more important, the man. The serum amplifies everything that is inside. So, good becomes great. Bad becomes worse. This is why you were chosen. Because a strong man, who has known power all his life, will lose respect for that power. But a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows compassion.
Steve Rogers: Thanks. I think.

Dr. Abraham Erskine: Whatever happens tomorrow, you must promise me one thing. That you will stay who you are. Not a perfect soldier, but a good man.
[Steve holds up his glass to toast]
Steve Rogers: To the little guys.
[just as Steve's about to drink from his glass]
Dr. Abraham Erskine: No! No! Wait! Wait! What I am doing? No! You have a procedure tomorrow. No fluids.
[he pours the contents of Steve's glass into his own]
Steve Rogers: All right. We'll drink it after.
Dr. Abraham Erskine: No! I don't have procedure tomorrow. Drink it after! Drink it now!

[whilst driving through Brooklyn]
Steve Rogers: I know this neighborhood. I got beat up in that alley. And that parking lot. And behind that diner.
Peggy Carter: Did you have something against running away?
Steve Rogers: You start running they'll never let you stop. You stand up, push back. Can't say no forever, right?
Peggy Carter: I know a little of what that's like. To have every door shut in your face.
Steve Rogers: I guess I just don't why you'd wanna join the army if you're a beautiful dame. Or a beautiful...a woman. An agent, not a dame! You are beautiful, but...
Peggy Carter: You have no idea how to talk to a woman, do you?
Steve Rogers: This is the longers conversation I've had with one. Women aren't exactly lining up to dance with a guy they might step on.
Peggy Carter: You must have danced?
Steve Rogers: Well, asking a woman to dance always seems so terrifying. And the past few year just didn't seem to matter that much. Figured I'd wait.
Peggy Carter: For what?
Steve Rogers: The right partner.

[to the small group gathered to watch Steve being prepared to become a super-solider]
Dr. Abraham Erskine: Ladies and gentlemen, today we take not another step towards annihilation, but the first step on the path to peace. We begin with a series of micro injections into the subjects major muscle groups. The serum infusion will cause immediate cellular change. And then to stimulate growth, the subject will be saturated with vita rays.

[as he receives the first injection to begin the procedure to change him to a super-soldier]
Steve Rogers: That wasn't so bad.
Abraham Erskine: That was penicillin.

[knocking on the capsule that they've locked Steven in for the procedure to change him]
Abraham Erskine: Steven, can you hear me?
Steve Rogers: It's probably too late to go to the bathroom, right?

[as Steve is screaming in pain as he is receiving the vita rays]
Peggy Carter: Shut it down!
[Erskine knocks frantically on the capsule]
Abraham Erskine: Steven!
Peggy Carter: Shut it down!
Abraham Erskine: Kill the reactor, Mr. Stark! Kill the reactor!
Steve Rogers: No! Don't! I can do this!

[after being transformed into a super-soldier]
Peggy Carter: How do you feel?
Steve Rogers: Taller.
Peggy Carter: You look taller.

[as he captures Kruger]
Steve Rogers: Who the hell are you?
Heinz Kruger: The first of many. Cut off one head, two more shall take its place. Heil Hitler!
[he pops a fake tooth loose and swallows it, he starts to foam at the mouth and then die]

Roeder: And I suppose you still aim to end this war through magic?
Johann Schmidt: Science. But I understand your confusion. Great power has always baffled primitive men. Hydra is assembling an arsenal to destroy my enemies in one stroke. Where ever they are, regardless of how many forces they possess. All in a matter of hours.
Roeder: Your enemies?
Johann Schmidt: My weapons contain enough destructive power to decimate every hostile capital on earth. Quite simply, gentlemen, I have harnessed the power of the Gods.

[referring to the amount of blood samples taken from him]
Steve Rogers: I think you got enough.

Steve Rogers: Sir, if you're going after Schmidt, I want in.
Col. Chester Phillips: You're an experiment. You're going to Alamogordo.
Steve Rogers: The serum worked.
Col. Chester Phillips: I asked for an army and all I got was you. You are not enough.

Senator Brandt: Son, do you wanna serve your country on the most important battle field of the war?
Steve Rogers: Sir, that's all I want.
Senator Brandt: Then, congratulations. You just got promoted.

[backstage as Steve is getting dressed in super-hero costume]
Steve Rogers: I don't know if I can do this.
Brandt's Aide: Nothing to it. Sell off a few bonds, bonds buy bullets, bullets kills Nazi's. Bing bang boom. You're an American hero.

Steve Rogers: What are you doin' here?
Peggy Carter: Officially I'm not here at all. That was quite a performance.
Steve Rogers: Yeah. Uh...I had to improvise a little bit. Crowds I'm used to are usually more uh...
Captain America Movie Quotes Peggy Carter: But I understand you Americans knew hope?
Steve Rogers: Bond sales take a ten percent bump in every state I visit.
Peggy Carter: Is that Senator Brandt I hear?
Steve Rogers: At least he's got me doin' this. Phillips would have had be stuck in lab.
Peggy Carter: And these are your only two options? A lab rat or a dancing monkey? You were meant for more than this, you know?
[Steve goes to respond but hesitates]
Peggy Carter: What?
Steve Rogers: You know for the longest time I dreamed about coming overseas and be on the front lines. Serving my country. I finally get everything I wanted, and I'm wearing tights.

Peggy Carter: Schmidt sent out a force to Rosano. Two hundred men went up against him and less than fifty returned. Your audience contained what was left of the one-oh-seventh. The rest were killed or captured.

Peggy Carter: What?
