Shuri: Griot. What’s my brother’s heart rate?
Ramonda: Your brother is with the ancestors.
Ramonda: [at the UN meeting] It has always been our policy to never trade vibranium under any circumstance. Not because of the dangerous potential of vibranium, but because of the dangerous potential of you.
Ramonda: [at the UN meeting] You perform civility here. But we know what you whisper in your halls of leadership and in your military facilities. “The King is dead. The Black Panther is gone. They have lost their protector. Now is our time to strike.”
Okoye: Aneka, where is your spear?
Aneka: [referring to the daggers] Shuri gave me these to try. You know, I like them better.
Okoye: Our foremothers gave us the spear because it is precise, elegant, and deadly. It will not change under my watch.
Ramonda: We mourn the loss of our king. But do not think for a second that Wakanda has lost her ability to protect our resources. We are aware of the ongoing efforts by some to find vibranium outside of Wakanda, and wish you the best of luck.
Ramonda: [referring to Griot] That thing unnerves me. I think that one day artificial intelligence is going to kill us all.
Shuri: My AI isn’t like the movies, Mother. It does exactly what I tell it to do.
Ramonda: Yeah, if only children were the same.
Ramonda: Oh, what is this?
Shuri: Exo Suits for our army. It grants the user superhuman strength, speed, and durability. But, as always, Okoye had notes.
Ramonda: What were her notes?
Shuri: She hates them.
Ramonda: What of the Black Panther? The mantle has unified our nation for centuries.
Shuri: The Black Panther is a relic, Mother. I wasn’t trying to save the mantle with the Herb, I was trying to save my brother.

Ramonda: [to Shuri] T’Challa is dead, but that doesn’t mean he is gone. When that illness took your brother from us, I had to lead a wounded nation and a broken world. But I still took time in the bush.
Ramonda: I found your brother in the breeze, pushing me gently, but firm. Like his hand on my shoulder.
Ramonda: [to Shuri] What construct does your mind create when you think of your brother? Does it offer you comfort? Or torment?
Shuri: If I sit and think about my brother for too long, it won’t be these clothes I’ll burn. It will be the world, and everyone in it.
Ramonda: Stop! Right there! Who are you? And how did you get in here?
Namor: This place is amazing. The air is pristine. And the water. My mother told stories about a place like this. A protected land with people that never have to leave, that never have to change who they were. What reason do you have to reveal your secret to the world?
Ramonda: I am not a woman who enjoys repeating herself. Who are you?
Namor: I have many names. My people call me K’uk’ulkan. But my enemies call me Namor.

Ramonda: You do not sneak into my country and tell me what is fair.
Namor: I have more soldiers than this land has blades of grass. And they have incomparable strength. I would hate to come back under different circumstances.
M’Baku: If my soldiers were present, this “fish man” would be bound before us as we speak.
Okoye: If your muscle brains were present, they would still be there choking on their fuzzy adornments.
M’Baku: You bald-headed demon…
Ramonda: Show some respect, you two.
Ramonda: M’Baku, what would you have us do?
M’Baku: We should find the fish man and kill him. If we do what he is asking for now, what is to stop him from coming back and asking for more?
Okoye: [referring to the exo suit] Is it just me, or does this keep getting uglier?
Shuri: It’s you.

Shuri: So, when are we leaving so I can see my favorite colonizer?
Everett Ross: [referring to Riri] The US needs another machine, and this kid is the only person in the world who knows how to build one. So they’re coming for her.
Shuri: A kid?
Riri: You’re Princess Shuri. What the hell are you doing here? Oh, s**t, am I getting recruited?
Riri: To be young, gifted, and Black though, right? Y’all probably don’t say that in Wakanda.
Shuri: Brilliance at a young age is not always accepted by the elders.

Shuri: You brought a spear in here?
Riri: You brought a spear in here.
Okoye: I like her.
Okoye: You can come to Wakanda, conscious or unconscious.
Riri: You need to be conscious of the way that you look. Walking round her with all that ash on your head.
Okoye: Oh, it’s funny!
Shuri: No. No.
Okoye: I told you!
Shuri: You look good.
Shuri: [to Riri] Calm down. We’ll leave, okay? And she can deal with that merman with the winged ankles who wants to kill her all by herself.
Okoye: So, the design for the machine is on that laptop?
Okoye: And you just leave it on a desk in a car garage?
Riri: I got 2065-byte encryption on that thing.
Shuri: That’s impressive. Ever locked yourself out?
Riri: Took me the whole semester to get back in. I had to build a functional quantum computer just to crack my own encryption.

Riri: I swear to God, I was doing so well! Going to class on time. I must be dumb as hell. Real dumb thinking that the Princess of Wakanda is going to show up at my doorstep, and then s**t about to pop off. I think that I’m actually going to take my chances with this merman, because at least he never brought the FBI to my garage!
Shuri: [referring to the iron armor suit] That thing can fly?
Riri: There’s an entire You Tube channel dedicated to sightings of me.
Okoye: Griot, take me to the princess, or I will drive my spear so deep into your CPU, you will not be able to process basic input for a millennia.

Valentina Allegra de Fontaine: You’re looking good.
Everett Ross: Oh. Well, I try.
Valentina Allegra de Fontaine: You put that home gym in?
Everett Ross: Yeah. Last year.
Valentina Allegra de Fontaine: Maybe I’ll drop by sometime and jump on your Peloton.
Valentina Allegra de Fontaine: Hey, Ross? You got a full tank of gas? Can you give me a ride back to Langley?
Everett Ross: It’s an eight-hour drive.
Valentina Allegra de Fontaine: Yeah. We can talk about the case. Actually, wouldn’t mind apologizing to you for a couple of things I said during our marriage.
