Nick Fury: Is there anything we know for certain?
Selvig: Tesseract is misbehaving.

Selvig: No, it’s not funny at all. The Tesseract is not only active, she’s misbehaving.
Nick Fury: Where’s Agent Barton?
Selvig: The Hawk? Up in his nest, as usual.

Tony Stark: [to himself] Please be a secret door. Please be a secret door. Please be a secret door…
Tony Stark: [as he finds the door] Yay!
