[recording a message using his helmet]
Tony Stark: This thing on? Hey, Miss Potts, Pep. If you find this recording, don’t post it on social media. It’s going to be a real tear-jerker. I don’t know if you’re ever going to see these. I don’t even know if you’re still… Oh, God, I hope so. Today is day twenty-one, uh, twenty-two. You know, if it wasn’t for the existensial terror of staring into the literal void of space, I’d say, I’m feeling more better today. The infection’s run its course, thanks to the blue meanie back there. You’d love her. Very practical. Only a tiny bit sadistic.
[continuing recording his message to Pepper]
Tony Stark: Some fuel cells were cracked during battle, but we figured out a way to reverse the ion charge to buy ourselves about forty-eight hours of playtime. But it’s now dead in the water. We’re a thousand lightyears from the nearest 7-Eleven. Oxygen will run out tomorrow morning, and that’ll be it. And Pep, I know I said no more surprises, but I got to say I was really hoping to pull off one last one. But it looks like, well, you know what it looks like. Don’t feel bad about this. I mean actually if you grovel for a couple weeks, and then move on with enormous guilt. I should probably lie down. I’m going to rest my eyes. Please know when I drift off, it’ll be like every night. I’m fine, totally fine. I’ll dream about you, because it’s always you.
[he turns off the recording]
[after Carol rescues Nebula and Tony from deep space and returns them to the Avengers compound]
Tony Stark: I couldn’t stop him.
Steve Rogers: Neither could I.
Tony Stark: I lost the kid.
Steve Rogers: Tony, we lost.
Steve Rogers: It’s been twenty-three days since Thanos came to Earth.
Natasha Romanoff: World governments are in pieces. The parts that are still working, are trying to take a census. And it looks like he did, he did exactly what he said he was going to do. Thanos wiped out fifty percent of all living creatures.
[referring to Thor]
Tony Stark: What’s wrong with him?
Rocket: He’s pissed. Thinks he failed. Which, of course he did, but, you know, there’s a lot of that going around, ain’t there?
Tony Stark: Honestly, at this exact second, I thought you were a Build-A-Bear.
Rocket: Maybe I am.
Steve Rogers: We’ve been hunting Thanos for three weeks now. Deep space scans, and satellites, and we got nothing. Tony, you fought him.
Tony Stark: Who told you that? I didn’t fight him. No, he wiped my face with a planet while a Bleecker Street magician gave away the stone. That’s what happened. There was no fight.
Steve Rogers: Okay. Did he give you any clues, any coordinates, anything?
Tony Stark: I saw this coming a few years back, I had a vision, but I didn’t want to believe it. Thought I was dreaming.
Steve Rogers: Tony, I’m going to need you to focus…
Tony Stark: And I needed you, as in past tense. That trumps what you need. It’s too late, buddy. Sorry.
Tony Stark: You know what I need? I need a shave. And I believe I ever remember telling you this…
James Rhodes: Tony, Tony, Tony…
Tony Stark: …why that otherwise, that what we needed was a suit of armor around the world! Remember that? Whether it impacted our precious freedoms or not, that’s what we needed.
Steve Rogers: Well, that didn’t work out, did it?
Tony Stark: I said we’d lose. You said, “We’ll do that together too.” Well, guess what, Cap? We lost, and you weren’t there. But that’s what we do, right? Our best work after the fact? We’re the Avengers? We’re the Avengers. Not the Prevengers, right?
James Rhodes: Okay, you made your point. Just sit down, okay?
Tony Stark: Okay. No, no, here’s my…
[pointing to Carol]
Tony Stark: She’s great, by the way. We need you. You’re new blood.
James Rhodes: Just sit down.
Tony Stark: Bunch of tired old wheels. I got nothing for you, Cap. I’ve got no coordinates, no clues, no strategies, no options. Zero, zip, nada. No trust, liar.
[he rips off his reactor and puts it in Steve’s hand]
Tony Stark: Here, take this. You find him and you put that on. You hide…
James Rhodes: Tony!
Tony Stark: I’m fine.
[he passes out]
[referring to Thanos]
Natasha Romanoff: He used the stones again.
Bruce Banner: Hey, hey, hey, hey. We’d be going in shorthanded, you know.
James Rhodes: But he’s still go the stones, so.
Carol Danvers: So let’s get him and use to them to bring everyone back.
Bruce Banner: Just like that?
Steve Rogers: Yeah. Just like that.
Natasha Romanoff: Even if there’s a small chance that we can undo this. I mean we owe it to everyone who’s not in this room to try.
Bruce Banner: If we do this, how do we know it’s going to end any differently than it did before?
Carol Danvers: Because before you didn’t have me.
James Rhodes: Hey, new girl, everybody in this room is about that superhero life. And if you don’t mind my asking, where the hell have you been all this time?
Carol Danvers: There are a lot of other planets in the universe, and unfortunately they didn’t have you guys
[Thor walks over to Carol, he summons stormbreaker and catches it, Carol smirks]
Thor: I like this one.
Steve Rogers: Let’s go get this son-of-a-bitch.
Rocket: Okay. Who here hasn’t been to space?
[Natasha, Steve and Rhodes put up their hands]
Rocket: You better not throw up on my ship.
[as they are going to find Thanos]
Natasha Romanoff: This is going to work, Steve.
Steve Rogers: I know it is. Because I don’t know what I’m going to do if it doesn’t.
[referring to Thanos]
Carol Danvers: No satellites, no ships, no armies, no ground defense of any kind. It’s just him.
Nebula: And that’s enough.
[referring to the Infinity Stone which are no longer on his gauntlet]
Steve Rogers: Where are they?
Carol Danvers: Answer the question.
Thanos: The universe required correction. After that, the stones served no purpose beyond temptation.
Natasha Romanoff: Where are the stones?
Thanos: Gone. Reduced to atoms.
Bruce Banner: You used them two days ago!
Thanos: I used the stones to destroy the stones. And it nearly killed me. But the work is done, it always be. I am inevitable.
James Rhodes: He has to be lying.
Nebula: My father is many things. A liar is not one of them.
Thanos: Oh. Thank you, daughter. Perhaps I treated you too harshly.
[just then Thor decapitates him with stormbreaker]
[after Thor decapitates Thanos]
Rocket: What did you do?
Thor: I went for the head.
[as Natasha is crying]
Steve Rogers: You know, I’d offer to cook you dinner, but you seem pretty miserable already.
Natasha Romanoff: Are you here to do your laundry?
Steve Rogers: And to see a friend.
Natasha Romanoff: Clearly, your friend is fine.
Steve Rogers: You know, I saw a pod of whales when I was coming up the bridge.
Natasha Romanoff: In the Hudson?
Steve Rogers: There’s fewer ships, cleaner water.
Natasha Romanoff: You know, if you’re about to tell me to look on the bright side, um, I’m about to hit you in the head with a peanut butter sandwich.
Steve Rogers: Sorry. Force of habit.
Steve Rogers: [to Natasha] You know, I keep telling everybody they should move on and grow. Some do. But not us.
Scott Lang: Oh. Hi. Hi, is anyone home? This is Scott Lang. We met a few years ago at the airport in Germany. I got really big. I had my mask on. You wouldn’t recognize me.
[to Natasha as they are watching Scott on the screen]
Steve Rogers: Is this an old message?
Scott Lang: Ant-Man. Ant-Man. I know you know that.
Natasha Romanoff: It’s the front door.
Scott Lang: I really need to talk to you guys.
Scott Lang: Have either of you guys ever studied quantum physics?
Natasha Romanoff: Only in mid-conversation.
Scott Lang: Alright. So five years ago, right before Thanos, I was in a place called the quantum realm. The quantum realm is like its own microscopic universe. To get in there, you have to be incredibly small. Hope, she’s my, she was my, she was supposed to pull me out. And then Thanos happened, and I got stuck in there.
Natasha Romanoff: Sorry. That must’ve been a long five years.
Scott Lang: Yeah, but that’s just it. It wasn’t. For me, it was five hours. See, the rules of the quantum realm aren’t like they are up here. Everything is unpredictable.
[he sees Natasha’s peanut butter sandwich]
Scott Lang: Is that anybody’s sandwich? I’m starving.
Steve Rogers: Scott, what are you talking about?
Scott Lang: So what I’m saying is, time works differently in the quantum realm. The only problem is, right now we don’t have a way to navigate it. But what if we did? I can’t stop thinking about it. What if we could somehow control the chaos, and we could navigate it? What if there was a way that we could enter the quantum realm at a certain point in time, but then exit the quantum realm at another point in time? Like before Thanos.
Steve Rogers: Wait, are you talking about a time machine?
Scott Lang: No. No, of course not. No, not a time machine. This is more like a… Yeah, like a time machine. I know, it’s crazy. It’s crazy. But I can’t stop thinking about it. There’s got to be some It’s crazy.
Natasha Romanoff: Scott, I get e-mails from a raccoon. So nothing sounds crazy anymore.
Scott Lang: So who do we talk to about this?
Tony Stark: Quantum fluctuation messes with the Planck scale, which then triggers the Deutsch proposition. Can we agree on that?
[hands Steve a drink]
Steve Rogers: Thank you.
Tony Stark: In Layman’s terms, it means you’re not coming home.
Scott Lang: I did.
Tony Stark: No. You accidentally survived. It’s a billion to one cosmic fluke. And now you want to pull a, what do you call it?
Scott Lang: A time heist?
Tony Stark: Yeah, a time heist. Of course. Why didn’t we think of this before? Oh, because it’s laughable? Because it’s a pipedream?
Steve Rogers: The stones are in the past. We could go back and we could get them.
Natasha Romanoff: We can snap our own fingers. We can bring everybody back.
Tony Stark: Or screw it up worse than he already has, right?
Steve Rogers: I don’t believe we would.
Tony Stark: Got to say this. Sometimes, I miss that giddy optimism. However, high hopes won’t help if there’s no logical, tangible, way for me to safely execute the said, time heist. I believe the most likely outcome will be our collective demise.
Scott Lang: Not if we strictly follow the rules of time travel. That means no talking to our past selves, no betting on sporting events…
Tony Stark: I’m going to stop you right there, Scott. Are you seriously telling me that your plan to save the universe is based on Back to the Future?
Scott Lang: No.
Tony Stark: Good. You had me worried there, because that’d be horseshit. That’s not how quantum physics works.
Natasha Romanoff: Tony, we have to take a stand.
Tony Stark: We did stand. And yet, here we are.
Scott Lang: I know you got a lot on the line. You got a wife, a daughter, but I lost someone very important to me. A lot of people did. And now, now, we have a chance to bring her back. To bring everyone back. And you’re telling me that you won’t even…
Tony Stark: That’s right, Scott. I won’t. Leave it. I got a kid.
Tony Stark: I wish you’d come here to ask me something else. Anything else. Honestly, I missed you guys, it was, oh, and table’s set for six.
Steve Rogers: Tony, I get it. And I’m happy for you. I really am. But this is a second chance.
Tony Stark: I got my second chance right here, Cap. I can’t roll the dice again.
[referring to himself as he’s now as Professor Hulk]
Bruce Banner: I know, it’s crazy.I’m wearing shirts now.
Scott Lang: Yeah. How? Why?
Bruce Banner: Five years ago we got our asses beat. Except it was worse for me, because I lost twice. First, Hulk lost, then Banner lost. And then, we all lost.
Natasha Romanoff: No one blamed you, Bruce.
Bruce Banner: I did. For years I’ve been treating the Hulk like he’s some kind of disease, something to get rid of. But then I started looking at him as the cure. Eighteen months in a gamma lab. I put the brains and the brawn together. And now look at me, best of both worlds.
Girl: Excuse me, Mr. Hulk?
Bruce Banner: Yes?
Girl: Can we get a photo?
Bruce Banner: One hundred percent, little person. Come on, step on up.
Bruce Banner: Do you mind?
[he passes the girl’s phone to Scott]
Scott Lang: Oh, yeah.
Bruce Banner: Thanks.
[to the kids]
Bruce Banner: Say “green”.
[they pose for Scott to take the photo]
Kids, Bruce: Green.
Bruce Banner: Did you get that?
Scott Lang: That’s good.
[to the kids after they’ve taken a photo with Bruce as Professor Hulk]
Scott Lang: You want to grab one with me? I’m Ant-Man.
[no response from the kids]
Scott Lang: They’re Hulk fans. They don’t know Ant-Man. Nobody does.
Bruce Banner: Wait, no, no. No, he wants to.
[to the kids]
Bruce Banner: You want to take a picture with him, right?
Scott Lang: He’s even saying no he doesn’t. I get it.
Bruce Banner: But come on, the kid…
Scott Lang: I don’t want it either.
Bruce Banner: But you…
Scott Lang: I don’t want a picture with them.
Bruce Banner: He’s going to feel bad.
Scott Lang: Sorry.
Bruce Banner: They’re happy to. They said they’d do it.
Scott Lang: I don’t want it anymore.
Bruce Banner: No. You’d feel bad.
Scott Lang: Take the goddamn phone.
[the girl takes her phone]
Kids: Thank you, Mr. Hulk.
Bruce Banner: No, it’s great, kids. Thank you very much. Hulk out! Bruce.
Bruce Banner: Dab.
Steve Rogers: Bruce.
Bruce Banner: Listen to your mom. She knows better.
Tony Stark: I love you tons.
Morgan Stark: I love you three thousand.
Tony Stark: Wow. Three thousand. That’s crazy.
Pepper Potts: We got really lucky.
Tony Stark: Yeah, I know.
Pepper Potts: A lot of people didn’t.
Tony Stark: No, I can’t help everybody.
Pepper Potts: It sort of seems like you can.
Tony Stark: Not if I stop. I can put a pin in it right now, and stop.
Pepper Potts: Tony, trying to get you to stop has been one of the few failures of my entire life.
Tony Stark: Something tells me I should put it in a locked box and drop it at the bottom of a lake, and go to bed.
Pepper Potts: But would you be able to rest?
[after their first botched attempt at time travel]
Scott Lang: Somebody peed my pants.
Natasha Romanoff: Oh, thank God.
Scott Lang: But I don’t know if it was baby me or old me.
[pauses as he thinks for a moment]
Scott Lang: Or, just me-me.
[Tony comes to the Avengers compound]
Tony Stark: Turns out, resentment is corrosive, and I hate it.
Steve Rogers: Me too.
Tony Stark: We got a shot at getting these stones, but I got to tell you, my priority is to bring back what we lost? I hope, yes. Keep what I found? I have to, at all costs. And maybe not die trying would be nice.
Steve Rogers: Sounds like a deal.
[they shake hands]
[Tony gets Steve’s shield from the trunk of his car]
Steve Rogers: Tony, I don’t know.
Tony Stark: Why? He made it for you. Plus, honestly I have to get it out the garage before Morgan takes it sledding.
[Steve takes the shield]
Steve Rogers: Thank you, Tony.
Tony Stark: Will you keep that a little quietly? Didn’t bring one for the whole team. We are getting the whole team, yeah?
Steve Rogers: We’re working on that right now.
[Rocket and Bruce go to see Thor in New Asgard]
Thor: Hulk, you know my friends, Miek and Korg, right?
Korg: Hey, boys!
Bruce Banner: Hey, guys. Long time no see.
Korg: Beer’s on the bucket. Feel free to log on to the wi-fi. No password, obviously.
Korg: Thor, he’s back. That kid on the TV just called me a dickhead again.
Korg: Yeah, Noobmaster69.
Thor: I’m going to fix this.
[he takes the gaming headphones from Korg]
Thor: Noobmaster. Hey, it’s Thor again. You know, the God of Thunder? Listen, buddy. If you don’t log off this game immediately, I’m going to fly home to your house, come down to that basement you’re hiding in, rip off your arms and shove them up your butt! Oh, that’s right. Yes, go cry to your father, you little weasel!
[he hands the headphones back to Korg]
Korg: Thank you, Thor.
Thor: Let me know if he bothers you again, okay?
Korg: Thank you very much. I will.
Thor: So you guys want a drink? What are we drinking? We got beer, tequila, all sorts of things.
[he takes a beer and starts drinking it]
Bruce Banner: Buddy, you alright?
Thor: Yes, I’m fine. Why, don’t I look alright?
Rocket: You look like melted ice cream.
Bruce Banner: We need your help. There might be a chance we could fix everything.
Thor: What, like the cable? Because that’s been driving me bananas for weeks.
Bruce Banner: Like Thanos.
[Thor goes quiet as his expression changes to anger]
Thor: Don’t say that name.
Korg: Um, yeah. We don’t actually say that name in here.
Thor: I know you think I’m down here wallowing in my own self-pity, waiting to be rescued and saved. But I’m fine, okay? We’re fine, aren’t we?
Korg: All good here, mate.
Thor: So whatever it is that you’re offering, we’re not into it, don’t care, couldn’t care less. Goodbye.
Bruce Banner: We need you, pal.
Rocket: There’s beer on the ship.
Thor: What kind?
Clint Barton: You shouldn’t be here.
Natasha Romanoff: Neither should you.
Clint Barton: I’ve got a job to do.
Natasha Romanoff: Is that what you’re calling this? Killing all these people isn’t going to bring your family back.
Natasha Romanoff: We found something. A chance, maybe…
Clint Barton: Don’t.
Natasha Romanoff: Don’t what?
Clint Barton: Don’t give me hope.
Natasha Romanoff: I’m sorry I couldn’t give it to you sooner.
[she takes his hand and holds it]
Bruce Banner: Clint, now you’re going to feel a little discombobulated from the chronoshift, don’t worry about it.
James Rhodes: Wait, wait a second, let me ask you something. If we can do this, you know, go back in time, why don’t we just find baby Thanos, you know, and…
[he mimes the strangling motion with his hands]
Bruce Banner: First of all, that’s horrible.
James Rhodes: It’s Thanos.
Bruce Banner: And secondly, time doesn’t work that way. Changing the past doesn’t change the future.
Scott Lang: Look, we go back, we get the stones before Thanos gets them, Thanos doesn’t have the stones. Problem solved.
Clint Barton: Bingo.
Nebula: That’s not how it works.
Clint Barton: Well, that’s what I heard.
Bruce Banner: What? By who? Who told you that?
James Rhodes: Star Trek, Terminator, TimeCop, Time After Time.
Scott Lang: Quantum Leap.
James Rhodes: A Wrinkle in Time, Somewhere in Time.
Scott Lang: Hot Tub Time Machine.
James Rhodes: Hot Tub Time Machine. Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Basically, any movie that deals with time travel.
Scott Lang: Die Hard? No, that’s not…
James Rhodes: This is known.
Bruce Banner: I don’t know why everyone believes that, but that isn’t true. Think about it, if you travel to the past, that past becomes your future. And your former present becomes the past. Which can’t now be changed by your new future.
Scott Lang: So Back to the Future’s a bunch of bullshit?
[upon seeing Thor, looking worse for wear, arriving at The Avengers compound]
Tony Stark: Drifting left. On the side there, Lebowski.
[walks over to Rocket who’s working on the time travel machine]
Tony Stark: Ratchet, how’s it going?
Rocket: It’s Rocket. Take it easy. You’re only a genius on Earth, pal.
Steve Rogers: Let’s start with the Aether. Thor, what do you know?
[they look over to Thor, who’s sitting motionless wearing sunglasses]
Natasha Romanoff: Is he asleep?
James Rhodes: No, no. I’m pretty sure he’s dead.
Thor: So Jane…
[a photo of Jane pops up on the screen]
Thor: Oh, there she is. Yeah, so Jane, she’s an old flame of mine. Uh, you know, she stuck her hand inside a rock this one time, and then the Aether stuck itself inside her. And she became very, very sick. And so I had to take her to Asgard, which is where I’m from, and we had to try and fix her. We were dating at the time, you see. I got to introduce her to my mother, who’s dead. And, um, oh, you know, Jane and I aren’t even dating anymore. So these things happen though, you know. Nothing lasts forever. The only thing that…
Tony Stark: Why don’t you come sit down.
Thor: I’m not done yet. The only thing that is permanent in life, is impermanence.
Tony Stark: Awesome. Eggs? Breakfast?
Thor: No. I’d like a Bloody Mary.
Rocket: Quill said he stole the Power Stone from Morag.
Bruce Banner: Is that a person?
Rocket: Morag’s a planet. Quill was a person.
Scott Lang: Like a planet? Like in outer space?
Rocket: Oh, look, it’s like a little puppy, all happy and everything.
[he pats Scott’s head like a puppy]
Rocket: Do you want to go to space? You want to go to space, puppy? I’ll take you to space.
[as they are all about to time travel to get the stones]
Steve Rogers: Five years ago, we lost. All of us. We lost friends. We lost family. We lost a part of ourselves. Today, we have a chance to take it all back. You know your teams, you know your missions. Get the stones, get them back. One round trip each. No mistakes. No do-overs. Most of us are going somewhere we know, that doesn’t mean we should know what to expect. Be careful. Look out for each other. This is the fight of our lives. And we’re going to win. Whatever it takes. Good luck.
Rocket: He’s pretty good at that.
Scott Lang: Right?
[Rocket and Thor travel to Asgard in 2013 to get the Reality Stone from Jane; Thor sees his mother]
Rocket: Who’s the fancy broad?
Thor: It’s my mother. She dies today.
Rocket: Oh. That’s today?
Thor: I can’t do this. I can’t do this. I shouldn’t be here. I shouldn’t have come. This was a bad idea.
Rocket: Come here.
Thor: No, no, no. I think I’m having a panic attack.
Rocket: Come here. Right here.
[as Thor is starting to panic Rocket slaps him in the face]
Rocket: You think you’re the only one who lost people? What do you think we’re doing here? I lost the only family I ever had. Quill, Groot, Drax, the chick with the antenna, all gone. Now, I get you miss your mom. But she’s gone. Really gone. And there are plenty of people who are only kind of gone, and you can help them. So is it too much to ask that you brush the crumbs out of your beard, make schmoopy talk to Pretty Pants, and when she’s not looking, suck out the Infinity Stone and help me get my family back?
Rocket: Are you crying?
Thor: No. Yes! I feel like I’m losing it.
Rocket: Get it together! You can do this. You can do this! Alright?
Thor: Yes, I can.
Thor: I can do this. I can do this. I can’t do this.
[he turns and leaves as Rocket is walking the other way]
Rocket: Alright, Heartbreaker. She’s alone. This is our shot.
[he turns and sees Thor is gone]
Rocket: Thor? Thor!
[after they travel to New York City in 2012 looking at themselves as they capture Loki]
Tony Stark: Ugh, Mr. Rogers, I almost forgot that that suit did nothing for your ass.
Steve Rogers: No one asked you to look, Tony.
Tony Stark: I didn’t.
Scott Lang: I think you look great, Cap. As far as I’m concerned, that’s America’s ass.
[New York City 2012 – Steve is stuck in the elevator with Rumlow and his men]
Steve Rogers: I just got a call from the Secretary. I’m going to be running point on the scepter.
Agent Sitwell: Sir? I don’t understand.
Steve Rogers: We got word there may be an attempt to steal it.
Brock Rumlow: Sorry, Cap. I can’t give you the scepter.
Agent Sitwell: I’m going to have to call the Director.
Steve Rogers: That’s okay. Trust me.
[he leans in and whispers to Sitwell]
Steve Rogers: Hail Hydra.
Hulk: So many stairs!
[when he sees himself from 2012]
Steve Rogers: Oh, you got to be shitting me.
[into his earpiece]
2012 Steve Rogers: I have eyes on Loki. Fourteenth floor.
Steve Rogers: I’m not Loki. And I don’t want to hurt you.
[they start fighting each other]
2012 Steve Rogers: I can do this all day.
Steve Rogers: Yeah, I know. I know.
[after knocking his 2012 himself out, he checks out his butt in his uniform]
Steve Rogers: That is America’s ass.
[Bruce goes to meet The Ancient One at the Sanctum Sanctorum in New York 2012]
The Ancient One: I’m sorry. I can’t help you, Bruce. If I give up the Time Stone to help your reality, I’m dooming my own.
Bruce Banner: With all due respect, I’m not sure the science really supports that.
The Ancient One: The Infinity Stones create what you experience as the flow of time. Remove one of the stones, and that flow splits. Now this may benefit your reality, but my new one, not so much. In this new branched reality, without our chief weapon against the forces of darkness, our world will be overrun. Millions will suffer. So, tell me, doctor, can your science prevent all that?
Bruce Banner: No. But we can erase it. Because once we’re done with the stones, we can return each one into its own timeline at the moment it was taken. So, chronologically, in that reality, it never left.
The Ancient One: Yes, but you’re leaving out the most important part. In order to return the stones, you have to survive.
Bruce Banner: We will. I will. I promise.
The Ancient One: I can’t risk this reality on a promise. It’s the duty of the Sorcerer Supreme to protect the Time Stone.
Bruce Banner: Then why the hell did Strange give it away?
The Ancient One: What did you say?
Bruce Banner: Strange. He gave it away. He gave it to Thanos.
The Ancient One: Willingly?
Bruce Banner: Yes.
The Ancient One: Why?
Bruce Banner: I have no idea. Maybe he made a mistake.
The Ancient One: Or I did.
[The Ancient One reveals the Time Stone]
The Ancient One: Strange was meant to be the best of us.
Bruce Banner: So he must’ve done it for a reason.
The Ancient One: I fear you might be right.
[she gives the stone to Bruce]
Bruce Banner: Thank you.
The Ancient One: I’m counting on you, Bruce. We all are.
Thanos: The Avengers. Unruly wretches.
[back in Asgard 2013, Thor tells Frigga about his failure with Thanos]
Frigga: You’re no idiot. You’re here aren’t you? Seeking counsel from the wisest person in Asgard.
Frigga: Idiot? No. A failure? Absolutely.
Thor: That’s a little bit harsh.
Frigga: You do know what that makes you? Just like everyone else.
Thor: I’m not supposed to be like everyone else, am I?
Frigga: Everyone fails at who they’re supposed to be, Thor. The measure of a person, of a hero, is how well they succeed at being who they are.
Thor: I really missed you, mum.
[back in Asgard 2013]
Thor: I have to tell you something.
Frigga: No, son. You don’t. You’re here to repair your future, not mine.
Thor: But this is about your future.
Frigga: It’s none of my business.
[Rocket walks in on Thor and Frigga]
Rocket: Hi. You must be mom.
Rocket: I got the thing. Come on, we got to move.
Thor: I wish we had more time.
Frigga: This was a gift. And you’re going to be the man you’re meant to be.
Thor: I love you, mum.
Frigga: I love you.
Frigga: And eat a salad.
[Rhodes and Nebula are on Morag in 2014 to get the Power Stone, they see Peter singing and dancing to himself]
James Rhodes: So he’s an idiot?
[as they are about to steal the Power Stone]
James Rhodes: Woh, woh, woh, woh. This is the part where, you know, spikes come out, with skeletons on the end of them and everything…
Nebula: What are you talking about?
James Rhodes: When you break into a place called “The temple of the Power Stone”, there’s going to be a bunch of booby traps…
[Nebula ignores him and walks ahead]
James Rhodes: Okay. Alright. Go ahead.
[referring to her body]
Nebula: I wasn’t always like this.
James Rhodes: Me either. But we work with what we got, right?
[as they are about to travel to SHIELD headquarters in 1970]
Tony Stark: You trust me?
Steve Rogers: I do.
[Stan Lee’s cameo]
70’s Car Man: Hey, man! Make love, not war!
[at SHIELD headquarter in 1970 just as Tony grabbed the Space Stone, he runs into his dad]
Howard Stark: Do I know you?
Tony Stark: No, sir. I’m a visitor from MIT.
Howard Stark: Huh. MIT. Got a name?
Tony Stark: Howard.
Howard Stark: Well that’ll be easy to remember.
Tony Stark: Howard Potts.
Howard Stark: Well, I’m Howard Stark.
Tony Stark: Hi.
[as Tony goes to shake Howard’s hand he accidentally just grabs his index finger]
Howard Stark: Shake it, don’t pull it.
Tony Stark: Yeah.
Howard Stark: You look a little green around the gills there, Potts.
Tony Stark: I’m fine. Just long hours.
Howard Stark: Want to get some air?
[Tony just looks at Howard]
Howard Stark: Hello, Potts.
Tony Stark: Yeah. That would be swell.
Howard Stark: That way.
Tony Stark: Okay.
Howard Stark: Need your briefcase?
[Howard hands Tony his briefcase]
Howard Stark: You’re not one of those beatniks, are you, Potts?
[as they get into the elevator]
Tony Stark: So flowers and sauerkraut. You got a big date tonight?
Howard Stark: My wife’s expecting. And, uh, too much time in the office.
Tony Stark: Congratulations.
Howard Stark: Thanks. Hold this, will you?
[hands Tony the flowers]
Tony Stark: Yeah, sure. How far along is she?
Howard Stark: Uh, I don’t know. Uh, she’s at the point where she can’t stand the sound of my chewing. I guess I’ll be eating dinner in the pantry again.
Tony Stark: I have a little girl.
Howard Stark: A girl would be nice. Less of a chance she’d turn out exactly like me.
Tony Stark: What’d be so awful about that?
Howard Stark: Let’s just say that the greater good has rarely outweighed my own self-interests.
Tony Stark: And so, where are you at with names?
Howard Stark: Well, if it’s a boy, my wife likes Almanzo.
Tony Stark: Huh. You might want to let that stew a while, you got time.
Howard Stark: Let me ask you a question. When your kid was born, were you nervous?
Tony Stark: Wildly. Yeah.
Howard Stark: Did you feel qualified? Like you had any idea how to successfully operate that thing?
Tony Stark: I literally pieced it together as I went along. I thought about what my dad did, and, uh…
[he sees Steve in the distance giving him the thumbs up]
Howard Stark: My old man, he never met a problem he couldn’t solve with a belt.
Tony Stark: I thought my dad was tough on me. And now, looking back, I just remember the good stuff, you know? He did drop the odd pearl.
Howard Stark: Yeah? Like what?
Tony Stark: “No amount of money ever bought a second of time.”
Howard Stark: Smart guy.
Tony Stark: He did his best.
Howard Stark: Let me tell you, that kid’s not even here yet, and there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for him.
Howard Stark: Good to meet you, Potts.
[they shake hands]
Tony Stark: Yeah, Howard. Everything’s going to be alright.
[he awkwardly hugs Howard]
Tony Stark: Thank you for everything that you’ve done for this country.
[as he watches Tony walk away]
Howard Stark: Have we ever met that guy?
Jarvis: You meet a lot of people, sir.
Howard Stark: He seems very familiar. Weird beard.
[referring to the Red Skull, who’s told them that the Soul Stone can only be acquired by sacrificing someone they love]
Clint Barton: Maybe he’s making this shit up.
Natasha Romanoff: No, I don’t think so.
Clint Barton: Why, because he knows your daddy’s name?
Natasha Romanoff: I didn’t.
[as they are thinking about sacrificing themselves for the Soul Stone]
Natasha Romanoff: Whatever it takes.
Clint Barton: Whatever it takes.
Natasha Romanoff: If we don’t get that stone, billions of people stay dead.
Clint Barton: Then I guess we both know who it’s got to be.
Natasha Romanoff: I guess we do.
Clint Barton: I’m starting to think we mean different people here, Natasha.
Natasha Romanoff: For the last five years I’ve been trying to do one thing, get to right here. That’s all it’s been about. Bringing everybody back.
Clint Barton: Oh, don’t you get all decent on me now.
Natasha Romanoff: What, you think I want to do it? I’m trying to save your life, you idiot.
Clint Barton: Yeah, well, I don’t want you to, because I… Natasha, you know what I’ve done. You know what I’ve become.
Natasha Romanoff: Well, I don’t judge people on their worst mistakes.
Clint Barton: Maybe you should.
Natasha Romanoff: You didn’t.
Clint Barton: You’re a pain in my ass, you know that?
[they lean their heads together]
Clint Barton: Okay. You win.
[they start fighting]
Clint Barton: Tell my family I love them.
Natasha Romanoff: You tell them yourself.
[after finding out about Natasha’s death]
Tony Stark: Do we know if she had family?
Steve Rogers: Yeah. Us.
[referring to Natasha]
Thor: Why are we acting like she’s dead? We have the stones, right? As long as we have the stones, Cap, we can bring her back, isn’t that right? So stop this shit! We’re the Avengers, get it together.
Clint Barton: We can’t get her back.
Clint Barton: It can’t be undone. It can’t.
Thor: [chuckling] I’m sorry. No offense, but you’re a very earthly being. Okay, and we’re talking about space magic. And “can’t” seems very definitive, don’t you think?
Clint Barton: Yeah, look, I know that I’m way outside my paygrade here, but she still isn’t here, is she?
Thor: No, that’s my point.
Clint Barton: It can’t be undone. Or that’s at least what the great floating guy had to say. Maybe you want to go talk to him? Okay? Go grab your hammer, and you go fly and you talk to him!
[referring to Natasha]
Clint Barton: It was supposed to be me. She sacrificed her life for that goddamned stone. She bet her life on it.
[Bruce picks up a bench and throws it across the water in anger]
Bruce Banner: She’s not coming back. We have to make it worth it. We have to.
Steve Rogers: We will.
[after Tony makes a new gauntlet and they have places all the stones on it]
Rocket: Alright. The glove’s ready. Question is, who’s going to snap their freaking fingers?
Thor: I’ll do it.
Tony Stark: Excuse me?
Thor: It’s okay.
Tony Stark: No, no, no, no.
Scott Lang: Stop. Stop. Slow down.
Steve Rogers: Thor, just wait. We haven’t decided who’s going to put that on yet.
Thor: I’m sorry. What, were you just sitting around waiting for the right opportunity?
Scott Lang: We should at least discuss it.
Thor: Look, us sitting here staring at that thing is not going to bring everybody back. I’m the strongest Avenger, okay? So this responsibility falls upon me. It’s my duty.
Tony Stark: Normally, yes. It’s not about that.
Thor: It’s not that, it’s, stop it! Just let me. Just let me do it. Just let me do something good. Something right.
Tony Stark: No, it’s not just the fact that that glove is channeling enough energy to light up a continent, I’m telling you, you’re in no condition.
Thor: What do you think is coursing through my veins right now?
James Rhodes: Cheez Whiz?
Tony Stark: Yeah.
Bruce Banner: Lightning won’t help you, pal. It’s got to be me.
Bruce Banner: You saw what those stones did to Thanos. It almost killed him. None of you could survive.
Tony Stark: How do we know you will?
Bruce Banner: I don’t. But the radiation’s mostly gamma. It’s like I was meant for this.
Tony Stark: Good to go, yeah?
Bruce Banner: Let’s do it.
Tony Stark: And remember, everyone Thanos snapped away five years ago, we’re just bringing them back to now, today. Don’t change anything from the last five years.
Bruce Banner: Got it.
[as Tony, Steve and Thor approach Thanos]
Thanos: You could not live with your own failure. Where did that bring you? Back to me. I thought by eliminating half of life, the other half would thrive. But you’ve shown me, that’s impossible. And as long as there are those that remember what was, there will always be those that are unable to accept what can be. They will resist.
Tony Stark: Yep. We’re all kinds of stubborn.
Thanos: I’m thankful. Because now I know what I must do. I will shred this universe down to its last atom. And then, with the stones you’ve collected for me, create a new one. Teeming with life, but knows not what it has lost, but only what it has been given. A grateful universe.
Steve Rogers: Born out of blood.
Thanos: They’ll never know it. Because you won’t be alive to tell them.
[after he sees Steve uses Mjolnir to help him fight Thanos]
Thor: I knew it!
[as Steve is fighting with Thanos and his army he hears Sam’s voice through his earpiece]
Sam Wilson: Cap, you hear me? Cap, it’s Sam. Can you hear me? On your left.
[Steve turns to see Black Panther, Okoye and Shuri emerging from a portal, then Sam flies in to join them]
[after Strange arrives with his sorcerers, the other restored Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Ravagers, the armies of Asgard and Wakanda]
Stephen Strange: Is that everyone?
Wong: What, you wanted more?
Steve Rogers: Avengers, assemble.
[to Steve, who is using stormbreaker as they are fighting with Thanos and his army]
Thor: No, no. Give me that.
[Steve throws stormbreaker to Thor]
Thor: You have the little one.
[he throws Mjolnir to Steve]
[after everyone is brought back from being dusted]
Peter Parker: Holy cow. You will not believe what’s been going on. Do you remember when we were in space, and I got all dusty? I must’ve passed out, because I woke up, and you were gone. But Doctor Strange was there, right? He was like, “It’s been five years. Come on, they need us!” And then he started doing the yellow sparkly thing that he does all the time…
[Tony embraces him tearfully]
Peter Parker: What are you doing? This is nice.
Peter Quill: Gamora? I thought I lost you.
[Peter goes to touch her face, she grabs his hand, kicks him, headbutts him, knocking him down]
2014 Gamora: Don’t touch me!
Peter Quill: You missed the first time, then you got them both the second time.
2014 Gamora: This is the one? Seriously?
Nebula: The choices were him, or a tree.
Tony Stark: You said one out of fourteen million, we win, yeah? Tell me this is it.
Stephen Strange: If I tell you what happens, it won’t happen.
Tony Stark: You better be right.
Wanda Maximoff: You took everything from me.
Thanos: I don’t even know who you are.
Wanda Maximoff: You will.
[Peter is lying in a ditch holding on tightly to the gauntlet with the stones]
Peter Parker: Hi. I’m Peter Parker.
Carol Danvers: Hey, Peter Parker. You got something for me?
Peter Parker: I don’t know how you’re going to get through all that.
Wanda Maximoff: Don’t worry.
Okoye: She’s got help.
[Pepper in her Iron Man suits appears, along with Mantis, Gamora, Valkyrie, Nebula, Hope and Shuri]
Thanos: I am inevitable.
[he snaps his fingers and nothing happens, realizes the stones are not on the gauntlet]
Tony Stark: And I am Iron Man.
[Tony snaps his fingers, we see Thanos’s army and Thanos slowly fading into dust]
[seeing how badly wounded Tony is after he’s snapped his fingers to destroy Thanos and his army]
Peter Parker: Mr. Stark? Hey. Mr. Stark? Can you hear me? It’s Peter. We won. Mr. Stark. We won, Mr. Stark. We won. You did it, sir. You did it. I’m sorry.
[he breaks down crying]
[to a fatally wounded Tony]
Pepper Potts: Tony. Look at me. We’re going to be okay. You can rest now.
[she cries as Tony dies]
[Tony’s hologram message played at his funeral]
Tony Stark: Everybody wants a happy ending, right? But it doesn’t always roll that way. Maybe this time. I’m hoping if you play this back, it’s in celebration. I hope families are reunited, I hope we get it back, and something like a normal version of the planet has been restored. If there ever was such a thing. God, what a world. Universe, now. If you told me ten years ago that we weren’t alone, let alone, you know, to this extent, I mean, I wouldn’t have been surprised. But come on, who knew? That epic forces of darkness and light that have come into play. And, for better or worse, that’s the reality Morgan’s going to have to find a way to grow up in. So I found the time and I recorded a little greeting, in the case of an untimely death. On my part. I mean, not that death at any time isn’t untimely. This time travel thing that we’re going to try and pull off tomorrow, it’s got me scratching my head about the survivability of it. Then again, that’s the hero gig. Part of the journey is the end. What am I even tripping for? Everything’s going to work out exactly the way it’s supposed to.
Tony Stark: I love you three thousand.
[referring to Natasha; at Tony’s funeral]
Clint Barton: You know, I wish there was a way that I could let her know. That we won. We did it.
Wanda Maximoff: She knows.
[referring to Natasha and Vision]
Wanda Maximoff: They both do.
[at Tony’s funeral]
Happy Hogan: How you doing, Squirt?
Morgan Stark: Good.
Happy Hogan: You good?
Morgan Stark: Mm-hmm.
Happy Hogan: Okay. You hungry?
Morgan Stark: Mm-hmm.
Happy Hogan: What do you want?
Morgan Stark: Cheeseburgers.
Happy Hogan: You know, your dad liked cheeseburgers.
Morgan Stark: Mm-hmm.
Happy Hogan: I’m going to get you all the cheeseburgers you want.
Morgan Stark: Okay.
[after making Valkyrie the ruler of New Asgard]
Thor: It’s time for me to be who I am rather than who I’m supposed to be. But you, you’re a leader. That’s who you are.
Valkyrie: You know, I’d make a lot of changes around here.
Thor: I’m counting on it, Your Majesty.
[they shake hands]
Valkyrie: What will you do?
Thor: I’m not sure. For the first time in a thousand years, I have no path. I do have a ride though.
Rocket: Move it or lose it, hairbag.
[as he enters the ship]
Thor: Well, here we are. Tree! Good to see you. Well, The Asgardians of the Galaxy back together again. Well, where to first?
Peter Quill: Just so you know, this is my ship still. I’m in charge.
Thor: I know. I know. Of course, you are. Of course.
Peter Quill: See, you say of course, but then you touch the map. And it makes you think that maybe you didn’t realize I was in charge.
Thor: Quail, that’s your own insecurities in there. Okay?
Peter Quill: Quail?
Thor: I’m merely trying to be of service. An assistant.
Peter Quill: Quill.
Thor: That’s what I said.
Drax: You should fight one another for the honor of leadership.
Nebula: Sounds fair.
Peter Quill: It’s not necessary.
Thor: It’s not.
Peter Quill: Okay?
Rocket: I got some blasters, unless you guys want to use knives.
Mantis: Oh, yes. Please, use knives.
Drax: Yeah, knives.
Groot: I am Groot.
[Thor and Peter laugh]
Peter Quill: Not necessary.
Thor: Not necessary. There shall be no knifing one another. Everybody knows who’s in charge.
Peter Quill: Me. Right?
Thor: [laughing] Yes, you. Of course! Of course. Of course.
[as Steve is about to time travel back to return the Infinity Stones]
Steve Rogers: Don’t do anything stupid until I get back.
Bucky Barnes: How can I? You’re taking all the stupid with you.
[they embrace each other]
Bucky Barnes: I’m going to miss you, Buddy.
Steve Rogers: It’s going to be okay, Buck.
[after Steve fails to come back from returning the Infinity Stones, Bucky and Sam see an elderly Steve sat on the bench near them]
Sam Wilson: Cap?
Steve Rogers: Hi, Sam.
Sam Wilson: So did something go wrong, or did something go right?
Steve Rogers: Well, after I put the stones back, I thought, maybe I’ll try some of that life Tony was telling me to get.
Sam Wilson: How did that work out for you?
Steve Rogers: It was beautiful.
Sam Wilson: I’m happy for you. Truly.
Steve Rogers: Thank you.
Sam Wilson: Only thing bumming me out is the fact I have to live in a world without Captain America.
Steve Rogers: Oh. That reminds me…
[Steve brings out his shield]
Steve Rogers: Try it on.
[Sam look over to Bucky, who nods his head]
[as Sam holds Steve’s shield]
Steve Rogers: How does it feel?
Sam Wilson: Like it’s someone else’s.
Steve Rogers: It isn’t.
Sam Wilson: Thank you. I’ll do my best.
Steve Rogers: That’s why it’s yours.
[Steve shakes Sam’s hand]
[last lines; after seeing elderly Steve’s wedding ring]
Sam Wilson: You want to tell me about her?
Steve Rogers: No. No, I don’t think I will.
[we then see Steve had time traveled back to be with Peggy, they are dancing to an old song, as they are dancing they kiss]
