The Avengers Quotes(Page 2)
[Natasha visits Loki in his cell]
Loki: There’s not many people that can sneak up on me.
Natasha Romanoff: But you figured I’d come.
Loki: After. After whatever tortures Fury can concoct, you would appear as a friend, as a balm. And I would cooperate.
Natasha Romanoff: I wanna know what you’ve done to Agent Barton.
Loki: I’d say I’ve expanded his mind.
Natasha Romanoff: And once you’ve won. Once you’re king of the mountain. What happens to his mind?
Loki: Is this love, Agent Romanoff?
Natasha Romanoff: Love is for children. I owe him a debt.
[referring to Natasha’s debt to Barton]
Loki: Tell me.
Natasha Romanoff: Before I worked for SHIELD, I uh…well, I made a name for myself. I have a very specific skillset. I didn’t care who I used it for, or on. I got on SHIELD’s radar in a bad way. Agent Barton was sent to kill me, he made a different call.
Loki: And what will you do if I vow to spare him?
Natasha Romanoff: Not let you out.
Loki: Ah, no. But I like this. Your world in the balance, and you bargain for one man?
Natasha Romanoff: Regime’s fall everyday. I tend not to weep over that, I’m Russian, or I was.
Loki: And what are you now?
Natasha Romanoff: It’s really not that complicated. I’ve got red in my ledger, I’d like to wipe it out.
Loki: Can you? Can you wipe out that much red? Drakoff’s daughter? Sao Paulo? The hospital file? Barton told me everything. Your ledger is dripping, it’s gushing red, and you think saving a man no more virtuous than yourself will change anything? This is the basest sentimentality. This is a child at prayer. Pathetic! You lie and kill in the service of liars and killers. You pretend to be separate, to have your own code, something that makes up for the horrors. But they are a part of you, and they will never go away.
Loki: I won’t barter Barton! Not until I make him kill you. Slowly, intimately, in every way he knows you fear. And then he’ll wake just long enough to see his good work, and when he screams I’ll split his skull!
[Natasha turns away from Loki]
Loki: This is my bargain, you mewling quim!
[Natasha sounds like she’s weeping]
Natasha Romanoff: You’re a monster.
Loki: Oh, no. You brought the monster.
[suddenly Natasha turns to face Loki again but with no evidence of tears]
Natasha Romanoff: So, Banner? That’s your play?
[Natasha talks into her earpiece]
Natasha Romanoff: Loki means to unleash the Hulk. Keep Banner in the lab, I’m on my way. Set the door locked.
[Natasha turns to Loki again]
Natasha Romanoff: Thank you, for your cooperation.
[she turns and walks off]
Nick Fury: What are you doing, Mr. Stark?
Tony Stark: Uh…kind of been wondering the same thing about you.
Nick Fury: You’re supposed to be locating the Tesseract.
Bruce Banner: We are, the model’s locked and we’re sweeping for the signature now. When we get a hit, we’ll have the location within half a mile.
Tony Stark: And you’ll get your cube back, no muss, no fuss. What is Phase 2?
[suddenly Steve appears with one of the weapons he’s found on the ship]
Steve Rogers: Phase 2 is SHIELD used the cube to make weapons.
Steve Rogers: Sorry, the computer was moving a little slow for me.
Nick Fury: Rogers, we gathered everything related to the Tesseract. This does not mean that we’re…
Tony Stark: I’m sorry, Nick.
[Stark moves the computer screen towards Fury which shows plans of the weapon]
Tony Stark: What were you lying?
Steve Rogers: I was wrong, Director. The world hasn’t changed a bit.
[Thor and Natasha walk into the lab as Steve, Stark and Banner are accusing Fury of lying to them]
Bruce Banner: Did you know about this?
Natasha Romanoff: You wanna think about removing yourself from this environment, doctor?
Bruce Banner: I was in Calcutta, I was pretty well removed.
Natasha Romanoff: Loki’s manipulating you.
Bruce Banner: And you’ve been doing what exactly?
Natasha Romanoff: You didn’t come here because I bat my eyelashes at you.
Bruce Banner: Yes, and I’m not leaving because suddenly you get a little twitchy.
Bruce Banner: I’d like to know why SHIELD is using the Tesseract to build weapons of mass destruction.
Nick Fury: Because of him.
[pointing at Thor]
Nick Fury: Last year earth had a visitor from another planet who had a grudge mass that levelled a small town. We learned that not only are we not alone, but we are hopelessly, hilariously, out gunned.
Thor: My people want nothing but peace with your planet.
Nick Fury: But you’re not the only people out there, are you? And, you’re not the only threat. The world’s filling up with people who can’t be matched, they can’t be controlled.
Steve Rogers: Like you controlled the cube?
Thor: You’re work with the Tesseract is what drew Loki to it, and his allies. It is the signal to all the realms that the earth is ready for a higher form of war.
Steve Rogers: A higher form?
Nick Fury: You forced our hand. We had to come up with something.
Tony Stark: A nuclear deterrent, cause that always calms everything right down.
Nick Fury: Remind me again how you made your fortune, Stark?
Steve Rogers: I’m sure if he still made weapons, Stark would be neck deep…
Tony Stark: Wait! Wait! Hold on! How is this now about me?
Steve Rogers: I’m sorry, isn’t everything?
Thor: I thought humans were more evolved than this.
Nick Fury: Excuse me, did we come to your planet and blow stuff up?
[suddenly they all start talking over each other and arguing]
Thor: You speak of control, yet you court chaos.
Bruce Banner: It’s his M.O., isn’t it? I mean, what are we, a team? No, no, no. We’re a chemical mixture that makes chaos. We’re…we’re a time-bomb.
Nick Fury: You need to step away.
Tony Stark: Why shouldn’t they guy let off a little steam?
Steve Rogers: You know damn well why! Back off!
Tony Stark: Oh, I’m starting to want you to make me.
Steve Rogers: Yeah, big man in a suit of armor. Take that off, what are you?
Tony Stark: Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.
Steve Rogers: I know guys with none of that worth ten of you. I’ve seen the footage. The only thing you really fight for is yourself. You’re not the guy to make the sacrifice play, to lay down on a wire and let the other guy crawl over you.
Tony Stark: I think I would just cut the wire.
Steve Rogers: Always a way out. You know, you may not be a threat, but you better stop pretending to be a hero.
Tony Stark: A hero, like you? You’re a laboratory experiment, Rogers. Everything special about you came out of a bottle.
[while everyone is arguing in the lab, Barton is sneaking up on the ship with a group of soldiers]
Steve Rogers: Put on the suite, let’s go a few rounds.
[Thor laughs at them]
Thor: You people are so petty, and tiny.
Bruce Banner: Yeah, this is a tee…
Nick Fury: Agent Romanoff, would you escort Dr. Banner back to his…
Bruce Banner: Where? You’re renting my room.
Nick Fury: The cell was just…
Bruce Banner: In case you needed to kill me, but you can’t! I know, I tried. I got low, I didn’t see an end, so I put a bullet in my mouth and the other guy spit it out. So I moved on, I focused on helping other people. I was good until you dragged me back into this freak show and put everyone here at risk. You wanna know my secret, Agent Romanoff? You wanna know how I stay calm?
[everyone is now looking at Banner with suspicion, Fury unhooks his gun]
Steve Rogers: Dr. Banner, put down the scepter.
[at that same moment the computer shows a signal for locating the Tesseract]
[Banner puts down the scepter. and walks towards the computer monitor]
Bruce Banner: Sorry, kids. You don’t get to see my party trick after all.
Thor: Located the Tesseract?
Tony Stark: I can get there faster.
Steve Rogers: Look, all of us…
Thor: The Tesseract belongs on Asgard, no human is a match for it.
[Stark turns to leave but Steve stops him]
Steve Rogers: You’re not going alone!
Tony Stark: You gonna stop me?
Steve Rogers: Put on the suit, let’s find out.
Tony Stark: I’m not afraid to hit an old man.
Steve Rogers: Put on the suit.
[at that moment Banner who’s looking at the monitor notices something about the Tesseract]
Bruce Banner: Oh, my God!
[Barton shoots an explosive arrow at the ship blowing up one of the engines, everyone is thrown in every direction]
Steve Rogers: Put on the suit!
Tony Stark: Yep!
[Steve helps Stark up and out of the lab]
[after the blast from the bomb, Natasha is trapped under a pile of rubble and next to her is Banner who is struggling with morphing into the Hulk]
Natasha Romanoff: Doctor? Bruce, you gotta fight it. This is just what Loki wants. We’re gonna be okay. Listen to me.
[Banner tries to stop the transformation]
Natasha Romanoff: We’re gonna be okay. Right? I swear on my life I will get you out of this, you will walk away, and never…
[Banner failing to stop his transformation into the Hulk shouts at Natasha]
Bruce Banner: Your life?
[Banner suddenly starts transforming into the Hulk and gives Natasha one last knowing look]
Natasha Romanoff: Bruce.
[Natasha struggles free of the rubble and takes off with the Hulk chasing after her]
[Steve finds one of the damaged engines and calls to Stark]
Steve Rogers: Stark, I’m here!
[Stark flies in his Iron Man suit and gets close to the damage engine]
Tony Stark: Good. See what we got.
[as he looks at the damaged engine]
Tony Stark: I gotta get this super conducting cooling system back online before I can access the rotors and work on dislodging the debris.
[Stark looks over at Steve]
Tony Stark: I need you to get to that engine control panel and tell me which relays are in overload position.
[Steve gets himself to the control panel and opens it up]
Tony Stark: What’s it look like in there?
Steve Rogers: It seems to run on some form of electricity.
Tony Stark: Well, you’re not wrong.
[as Natasha is still running from the Hulk, he corners her and is about to hit her when Thor comes plowing through and grabs the Hulk and they start fighting]
Thor: We’re not your enemies, Banner! Try to think!
[suddenly Hulk punches Thor sending him flying across the ship]
[referring to the damaged engine]
Steve Rogers: The relays are intact. What’s our next move?
Tony Stark: Even if I clear the rotors, this thing won’t re-engage without a jump. I’m gonna have to get in there and push.
Steve Rogers: Well if that thing gets up to speed, you’ll get shredded!
Tony Stark: Then stay in the control unit and reverse polarity long enough to disengage mag…
Steve Rogers: Speak English!
Tony Stark: See that red lever? It’ll slow the rotors down long enough for me to get out. Stand by it, wait for my word.
[Steve jumps towards the red lever]
[as they are fighting with Loki’s soldiers on the ship]
Agent Maria Hill: Sir, the Hulk will tear this place apart!
Nick Fury: Get his attention.
[as the Hulk and Thor are battling it out one of the SHIELD pilots tries to shoot the Hulk from his jet outside the ship, the Hulk leaps out and lands on the jet’s nose, tears it apart and finally plummets to earth]
[after Barton uses the computer to shut down the remaining engine]
Nick Fury: It’s Barton, he took our systems. He’s headed for the detention lab. Does anybody copy?
Natasha Romanoff: This is Agent Romanoff. I copy.
[to Thor as he gets tricked by Loki’s body double power thinking he’s escaping the cell and instead he ends up in the cell]
Loki: Are you ever not going to fall for that?
[to Thor as he tries to use his hammer to break the glass cell]
Loki: The humans think us immortal. Should we test that?
[as Loki is about to open the whole in the middle of the glass cell, Coulson suddenly appears and threatens Loki with a Phase 2 weapon prototype]
Agent Phil Coulson: Move away, please.
[Loki moves away from the switch]
Agent Phil Coulson: You like this? We started working on the prototype after you sent The Destroyer. Even I don’t know what it does. Do you wanna find out?
[just as he’s about to use the weapon suddenly Loki stabs Coulson from behind]
[Loki hits the button and opens the whole in the cell and drops Thor out of the ship trapped in the glass cage, just as the cage is about to hit the ground he uses his hammer to break free through the glass and leap free]
[after dropping Thor to earth, Loki turns to leave but Coulson stops him]
Agent Phil Coulson: You’re gonna lose.
Loki: Am I?
Agent Phil Coulson: It’s in your nature.
Loki: You’re heroes are scattered, your floating fortress falls from the sky. Where is my disadvantage?
Agent Phil Coulson: Your lack conviction.
Loki: I don’t think I…
[suddenly shoots Loki through the wall with the Phase 2 weapon which blasts out fire]
Agent Phil Coulson: So that’s what it does.
[as Stark is trying to get the engine started up]
Tony Stark: Cap, need a lever.
[Steve, who had been fighting with Loki’s soldiers is now hanging from the edge of the ship hanging on to a wire ]
Steve Rogers: I need a minute here!
Tony Stark: Lever! Now!
[Steve drags himself back on the ship but Loki’s soldiers start shooting at him, Stark then gets dragged out of the engine just as Steve manages to pull the red lever]
[as Loki escapes the ship via a jet, Fury finds Coulson gravely wounded]
Agent Phil Coulson: I’m sorry, boss. They got rabbited.
Nick Fury: Just stay awake. Eyes on me.
Agent Phil Coulson: No, I’m clockin’ out here.
Nick Fury: Not an option.
Agent Phil Coulson: It’s okay, boss. This was never gonna work if they didn’t have something to…
[Coulson dies before he can finish the sentence]
[after Coulson dies, Fury gathers the remaining Avengers in the ship’s meeting room]
Nick Fury: These were in Phil Coulson’s jacket. Guess he never did get you to sign them.
[he throws Coulson’s Captain America trading cards on the table towards Steve]
Nick Fury: We’re dead in the air up here. Our communications, location of the cube, Banner, Thor. I got nothing for you. Lost my one good eye. Maybe I had that coming.
[he pauses for a moment]
Nick Fury: Yes, we were going to build an arsenal with the Tesseract. I never put all my chips on that number though, because I was playing something even riskier. There was an idea, Stark knows this, called The Avengers Initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, see if they could become something more. See if they could work together when we needed them to, to fight the battles that we never could. Phil Coulson died still believing in that idea, in heroes.
[Stark gets up and walks off]
Nick Fury: Well, it’s an old fashioned notion.
[Banner now in his human form, wakes up naked in a pile of rubble in an abandoned building]
Security Guard: You fell out of the sky.
Bruce Banner: Did I hurt anybody?
Security Guard: There’s nobody around here to get hurt. You did scare the hell out of some pigeons though.
Bruce Banner: Lucky.
Security Guard: Or just good aim. You were awake when you fell.
Bruce Banner: You saw?
Security Guard: The whole thing, right through the ceiling. Big and green and buck ass nude. Here…
[he throws Banner a pair of trousers]
Security Guard: I didn’t think those would fit you until you shrunk down to a regular size fella.
Bruce Banner: Thank you.
[Banner put on the trousers]
Security Guard: Are you an alien?
Bruce Banner: What?
Security Guard: From outer space, an alien?
Bruce Banner: No.
Security Guard: Well then, son, you’ve got a condition.
[after Natasha has won her fight with Barton, she’s strapped him down so that he can shake off Loki’s mind control]
Natasha Romanoff: Clint, You’re gonna be alright.
Clint Barton: You know that? Is that what you know? I got…I gotta go in though. I gotta flush him out.
Natasha Romanoff: We don’t have that long, it’s gonna take time.
Clint Barton: I don’t understand. Have you ever had someone take your brain and play? Pull you out and send something else in? Do you know what it’s like to be unmade?
Natasha Romanoff: You know that I do.
Clint Barton: Why am I back? How did you get him out?
Natasha Romanoff: Cognitive recalibration I hit you really hard in the head.
Clint Barton: Thanks.
[Natasha frees his hands from the restraints]
Clint Barton: Tasha, how many agents?
Natasha Romanoff: Don’t. Don’t do that to yourself, Clint. This is Loki. This is monsters and magic and nothing we were ever trained for.
Clint Barton: Loki, he got away?
Natasha Romanoff: Yeah. I don’t suppose you know where?
Clint Barton: I didn’t need to know. I didn’t ask. He’s gonna make his play soon though. Today.
Natasha Romanoff: We gotta stop him.
Clint Barton: Yeah? Who’s we?
Natasha Romanoff: I don’t know. Who’s ever left.
Clint Barton: Well, if I put an arrow in Loki’s eye socket, I’d sleep better I suppose.
Natasha Romanoff: Now you sound like you.
Clint Barton: But you don’t. You’re a spy, not a soldier. Now you want to wade into a war. Why? What did Loki do to you?
Natasha Romanoff: He didn’t, I just…
Clint Barton: Natasha.
Natasha Romanoff: I’ve been compromised. I got red in my ledger, I’d like to wipe it out.
[referring to Coulson]
Steve Rogers: Was he married?
Tony Stark: No. He was a uh…cellist, I think.
Steve Rogers: I’m sorry. He seemed like a good man.
Tony Stark: He was an idiot.
Steve Rogers: Why? For believing?
Tony Stark: For taking on Loki alone.
Steve Rogers: He was doing his job.
Tony Stark: He was out of his league. He should have waited. He should have…
Steve Rogers: Sometimes there isn’t a way out, Tony.
Tony Stark: Right. How did that work for him?
Steve Rogers: Is this the first time you’ve lost a soldier?
Tony Stark: We are not soldiers! I’m not marching to Fury’s fife.
Steve Rogers: Neither am I. He’s got the same blood on his hands that Loki does, but right now we gotta put that behind us and get this done. Now Loki needs a power source, if we can put together a list…
Tony Stark: He made it personal.
Steve Rogers: That’s not the point.
Tony Stark: That is the point. That’s Loki’s point. He hit us all right where we live. Why?
Steve Rogers: To tear us apart.
Tony Stark: He had to conquer his greed, but he knows he has to take us out to win, right? That’s what he wants. He wants to beat us, he wants to be seen doing it. He wants an audience.
Steve Rogers: Right. I caught his act in Stuttgart.
Tony Stark: Yeah. That’s just previews, this is…this is opening night. And Loki, he’s a full-tail diva. He wants flowers, he wants parades, he wants a monument built to the skies with his name plastered!
[suddenly Stark realizes that Loki wants to use Stark Towers]
Tony Stark: Son of a bitch.
Steve Rogers: Time to go.
Natasha Romanoff: Go where?
Steve Rogers: I’ll tell you on the way. Can you fly one of those jets?
[Barton walks into the room]
Clint Barton: I can.
[Steve looks at Natasha and she nods her head to confirm Barton’s on their side]
Steve Rogers: You got a suit?
Clint Barton: Yeah.
Steve Rogers: Then suit up.
[as Steve, Barton and Natasha walk onto the jet]
Young Shield Pilot: You guys aren’t authorized to be in here.
Steve Rogers: Son, just don’t.
Agent Maria Hill: Sir.
Nick Fury: Agent Hill?
Agent Maria Hill: Those cards, they were in Coulson’s locker, not in his jacket.
Nick Fury: They needed the push.
[he watches as Stark flies off in his Iron Man suit and the jet that Steve, Barton and Natasha have boarded sets off]
Nick Fury: They found it. Get our communications back up, whatever you have to do. I want eyes on everything.
Agent Maria Hill: Yes, sir.
