1. Never Meet Your Heroes'There's always going to be weather. Some people forget the one thing they can control, the choices they make in the face of it.' - Derek Bishop (Hawkeye) Click To Tweet
Derek Bishop:  You shouldn’t eavesdrop.
Young Kate: Then how would I know what you’re saying when I’m not there?
Derek Bishop: I don’t know how to argue with that.
Young Kate: Mommy said things don’t just fall from the sky.
Derek Bishop: Well, yeah. But there’s always going to be weather. Some people forget the one thing they can control, the choices they make in the face of it.
Young Kate: What would you do in a hurricane?
Derek Bishop: I would do what I always do. Protect you.
Young Kate: [at Derek’s funeral, after the Chitauri attack in New York, MQM] I need to protect us.
Eleanor Bishop: Kate, that’s my job. Okay? Whatever you need, I’m here for you.
Young Kate: I need a bow and arrow.
Lila Barton: [as they’re watching Rogers: The Musical, MQM] Dad? Did you turn your hearing aid off?
Clint Barton: No, honey, I know what happens. I was there. You know who wasn’t there? Is that guy. Ant-Man.
Lila Barton: You look pretty cool though. That’s a plus.
Clint Barton: [referring to Rogers: The Musical] This whole thing is a bit ridiculous, isn’t it?
Lila Barton: A lot ridiculous.
2. Hide and Seek
Clint Barton: So, where did you learn to fight like that?
Kate Bishop: I started taking martial arts when I was five.
Clint Barton: Wow. So, like a year ago?
Kate Bishop: [to Clint] Look, just so you know, I’m not some total noob, right? I know I was a little overwhelmed, but I really held my own with those douchebags.
Kate Bishop: You know, some people have actually called me the world’s greatest archer.
Clint Barton: Yeah? Are you one of those people?
Kate Bishop: Well, one of them is. Yes.
Clint Barton: That’s wonderful. Yeah.
Clint Barton: Nice place for a kid.
Kate Bishop: Yeah, I inherited it.
Clint Barton: What are you, eighteen?
Kate Bishop: I’m twenty-two.
Clint Barton: Yeah, same thing.
Clint Barton: So, what all did you do in this suit?
Kate Bishop: I beat some guys up. Saved the dog. Some light B and E.
Clint Barton: Jesus. A twenty-two year-old vigilante.
Young Maya: [signing] Are dragons real?
William Lopez: Maybe they are. But dragons live in a different world.
Young Maya: [signing] What if they learned to come into our world?
William Lopez: Well, that would make them stronger.
William Lopez: [to young Maya] You have to learn to jump between two worlds. Just by watching.
William Lopez: [after he’s mortally stabbed by Ronin, signing] Please, just go.
Maya Lopez: [signing] I won’t leave you.
William Lopez: [signing] I’m already gone. Fly away from here, little dragon.
Kate Bishop: Seems like you’re mad at me. Look, I know it doesn’t look like that right now, but you’d be lost without me, you realize that?
Clint Barton: I was about to clear your name from the suit, until you decided to crash through the skylight.
Kazi: [referring to Maya] She asked what you’re doing here, Clint Barton.
Clint Barton: Riding a unicorn.
Kate Bishop: Learning about trust.
4. Partners, Am I Right?'Life is short. You never know what you're going to get.' - Jack Duquesne (Hawkeye) Click To Tweet
Eleanor Bishop: What the hell is going on? And why is there an Avenger in my dining room?
Jack Duquesne: Oh, my God. You’re Archer.
Kate Bishop: Hawkeye.
Clint Barton: Clint.
Kate Bishop: It’s the branding issue, I’m telling you.
Clint Barton: Yeah, sure.
Kate Bishop: He’s my partner.
Clint Barton: We’re not partners.
Kate Bishop: Well, we’re friends-slash-partners.
Clint Barton: I wouldn’t really describe us as friends.
Kate Bishop: You’ll never get anything out of him. See, CB-One has trouble opening up.
Clint Barton: Nobody calls me CB-One.
Kate Bishop: I’m just trying it out for a second. Probably some early childhood thing. He thinks he doesn’t tell me much, but he ends up telling me all of it.
Clint Barton: I virtually tell her nothing.
Kate Bishop: But, yeah, I think it’s because I’m generally just pretty chill. You know, I’m not like, “Oh, my God. Hawkeye!”
Clint Barton: Definitely not chill.
Eleanor Bishop: So Kate is helping you with an Avengers level threat?
Clint Barton: Well, not exactly.
Eleanor Bishop: But you are working together?
Clint Barton: Yes. Sounds weird, because it is.
5. Ronin'Sometimes the paths we're on, they wind around in ways that we never would have expected. All you can do is keep moving forward. Even on days when honestly, it all just kind of feels like s**t.' - Eleanor Bishop (Hawkeye) Click To Tweet
Sonya: [referring to Ana, a former Black Widow] I don’t think she was brainwashed.
Ana: What? You thought I was some rich pervert’s prisoner?
Yelena: Well, yeah, kind of.
Sonya: Wait, this is your house? How can you afford all of this?
Ana: By doing the thing we’re all best at. Killing for money.
Ana: So, how many widows have you helped?
Yelena: Many. Many. Yeah, it’s hard work. It’s hard finding them. It’s hard watching them wake. But it’s so worth it. And when we’ve cleared up all of this mess, we will make good lives for ourselves.
Yelena: [after she comes back from the Blip] Ana, I was in there for five seconds, I come out, and I’ve lost five years of my life. Please.
Ana: I’m sorry, Yelena. I was just trying to help you.
Yelena: I know. Thank you. Yeah. I need to find Natasha. Can you help me find Natasha? I need to tell her I’m okay.
'We are defined by what we do. Not by nice words.' - Yelena (Hawkeye) Click To Tweet
Eleanor Bishop: Are you okay? And why are you wearing your archery suit?
Kate Bishop: I’m okay.
Eleanor Bishop: Does this have to do with Clint Barton?
Kate Bishop: Mom, no. Clint protected me. And you’ll be glad to know he then told me to come home and stay away from him.
Eleanor Bishop: We’ve had a good relationship, haven’t we, Wilson?
Wilson Fisk: Yes.
Eleanor Bishop: I’ve never asked questions, I’ve always done what was told.
Wilson Fisk: What I’d expect when there’s a debt, and your husband owed a small fortune.
Eleanor Bishop: Which I have repaid tenfold by now.
Wilson Fisk: All the while doing pretty well for yourself.
Eleanor Bishop: I handled Armand like you asked. My fiancé is taking the fall for Sloan. But my daughter, my daughter is home now, and she’s getting too close. And that’s where I draw the line.
Wilson Fisk: There are no lines in this business.
Eleanor Bishop: And that is why I have to leave this business.
Wilson Fisk: Eleanor, don’t be rash.
Clint Barton: Your mom needs our help. That video, Kate, it’s not good. The Kingpin will not take this lightly. He is going to react, and he’s going to do it in a big way.
Kate Bishop: Clint, this is my mess to clean up. You should go home, you should be with your family. You can still make it in time for Christmas.
Clint Barton: Kate, you’re my partner. Your mess is my mess. I’m not going anywhere until this is finished.
Kazi: [translating for Maya] “I’ve realized no matter what I do, I can’t bring my father back. Finding whoever killed him, that won’t change anything.”
Wilson Fisk: He would’ve wanted you to move on. He always wanted the best for you. I only wish that he could be here now to see you and all of your accomplishments.
