Superhero sequel directed and co-written by Patty Jenkins. Wonder Woman 1984 follows Diana Prince (Gal Gadot), who lives quietly among mortals in 1980s, an era of excess driven by the pursuit of having it all.

Diana Prince: Some days, my childhood feels so very far away. And others, I can almost see it. The magical land of my youth. Like a beautiful dream of when the whole world felt like a promise, and the lessons that lay ahead yet unseen. Looking back, I wish I’d listened. Wish I’d watched more closely, and understood. But sometimes you can’t see what you’re learning, until you come out the other side.
Antiope: [referring to athletic competition on Themyscira] I’ve seen this contest humble even the most seasoned warriors, Diana.
Young Diana: I can do it.
Antiope: Just do your best. And remember, greatness is not what you think. Pace yourself and watch.
Antiope: [after Antiope removes Diana from the competition] You took the short path. You cheated, Diana.
Young Diana: No. But that…
Antiope: That is the truth. That is the only truth, and truth is all there is.
Antiope: [to young Diana] You cannot be the winner, because you are not ready to win, and there is no shame in that. Only in knowing the truth in your heart and not accepting it. No true hero is born from lies.
Hippolyta: Your time will come, Diana.
Young Diana: When?
Hippolyta: When you’re ready. Look to the Golden Warrior Asteria. She did not become a legend out of haste. She did it through true acts of bravery. Like patience, diligence, and the courage to face the truth. One day, you’ll become all that you dream of and more. And everything will be different. This world is not yet ready for all that you will do.
Maxwell Lord: [from his TV ad] Welcome to the future. Life is good, but it can be better. And why shouldn’t it be? Everything we’ve ever dreamed about is right at our fingertips. But are you reaping the rewards? Do you have it all?

Join me today. Operators are standing by. You don’t need a pile of money, or some business degree to get started. You don’t even have to work hard for it.

Diana Prince: [as she stops thieves trying to rob a mall jewelry store] I hate guns.
Diana Prince: Diana Prince, cultural anthropology and archaeology.
Barbara Minerva: Barbara Minerva. Geology, gemology, lithology, and part-time cryptozoologist.
Diana Prince: Wow.
Barbara Minerva: I kept busy in college.
Barbara Minerva: Sorry. It’s these heels, you know. It’s stupid. I don’t know why I was going to wear heels. Scientists don’t wear heels.
Diana Prince: Sometimes we do.
Barbara Minerva: [notices Diana’s shoes] Right. Those are cool!
Diana Prince: Have a nice day.
Barbara Minerva: I like those. Animal print.
Barbara Minerva: [referring to Dreamstone] I think the technical term here is “extremely lame”. It’s citrine. A classic stone used in fakes throughout history. I can’t imagine this is worth any more than seventy-five dollars. What do you think?
Diana Prince: Fakes aren’t my forte, but let me see. Mm. Latin.
Barbara Minerva: At least it’s an antique, right?
Diana Prince: Or a purchase from a stall on the Ponte Vecchio last week. You never know.
Diana Prince: [reading from the Dreamstone] “Place upon the object held but one great wish.”
Barbara Minerva: You read Latin?
Diana Prince: Yeah. Yeah. Languages are a hobby.
Barbara Minerva: So maybe it’s like a lucky charm or something?
Diana Prince: Yeah, I guess.
Barbara Minerva: [referring to the Dreamstone granting wishes] Can you imagine?
Diana Prince: If only.
Barbara Minerva: So many things, I don’t even know what I would wish for.
Diana Prince: I do.
Diana Prince: You know, we could go and grab early dinner, and talk about exactly how lame that stone is.
Barbara Minerva: Really?
Diana Prince: Yeah, I mean, citrine? Who are they kidding, right?
Barbara Minerva: [laughs] So lame.
Diana Prince: Dorky.
Barbara Minerva: Lame.
Diana Prince: Yeah, let’s go.
Barbara Minerva: That’s like the lamest of lames.
Diana Prince: Wow. I mean, no one’s made me laugh like this in such a long time. I mean, it’s true, I don’t get out much socially.
Barbara Minerva: You don’t get out much?
Diana Prince: No, not really. No.
Barbara Minerva: I’m sorry. I’m just surprised. Because you just seem like the kind of person who’s like always out. Like people are asking you to go out all the time, and you live out. You’re just out. Like you never get in.
Barbara Minerva: You just seem like you’d be really popular. And I would know because I’ve never been popular.
Diana Prince: You haven’t? You’re so personable. So free. I mean, honestly, I got to say that I envy that.
Barbara Minerva: What? You envy me? That doesn’t make any sense. Oh, my gosh. People think I’m weird. They avoid me, and talk behind my back when they don’t think I can hear them. I’m like, “Guys, I can hear you.”
Diana Prince: Barbara, my life hasn’t been what you probably think it has. We all have our struggles.
Barbara Minerva: Yeah, we do.
Barbara Minerva: Have you ever been in love?
Diana Prince: Yeah. A long, long time ago. You?
Barbara Minerva: So many times, yeah. All the time. Often. So what happened? Where did he go, your guy?
Diana Prince: He died. But I still think sometimes that I see him up there in the sky. He was a pilot. He was all kinds of things, but he was great. It was true.
Barbara Minerva: [after Diana knocks the drunk man away harassing Barbara] How did you…
Diana Prince: Simple self-defense. Used his own momentum against him. I’ll teach you. Honestly, it takes no power at all.
Barbara Minerva: [wishing to the Dreamstone] I do know what I’d wish for. To be like Diana. Strong. Sexy. Cool. Special.
Maxwell Lord: A pleasure, Miss Minerva.
Barbara Minerva: Oh. It’s “Doctor”, actually. Have we met before? You look familiar.
Carol: Do the thing.
Maxwell Lord: No.
Carol: Do the thing.
Maxwell Lord: [from his TV ad] Life is good, but it can be better.
Barbara Minerva: Oh, my gosh. From TV. Oh, my gosh. You’re the oil guy.
Maxwell Lord: “The oil guy.” I’ll take it.
Barbara Minerva: This is the one and only, Mr. Maxwell Lord. It’s him.
Maxwell Lord: Life is good, but it can be better.
Barbara Minerva: He’s from TV.
Diana Prince: Oh, I don’t have a TV.
Maxwell Lord: Well, I have a great relationship with Sears. I can get you a brand new TV by the end of the day. Nineteen inches. No strings attached.
Diana Prince: I’ll stick to the one I don’t have. But thank you.
Alistair: Where’s the pool, daddy?
Maxwell Lord: It’s not done yet, buddy. But it doesn’t matter. You just have to be patient. I told you the pool, the helicopter, you’ll have it all. But remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day, was it? No.
Alistair: Hasn’t it been a lot of days?
Maxwell Lord: Well, it takes time to become a great, great, number one man, like your dad is going to be.
Simon Stagg: Are you lying to your son, like you lie to everyone else?
Simon Stagg: I should have done some digging on you too, Maxwell Lorenzano. Didn’t take long to find out you’re nothing but a lowlife con man.
Maxwell Lord: I am not a con man! I am a television personality. And a respected businessman with a plan.
Simon Stagg: Come on.
Maxwell Lord: With a great plan.
Simon Stagg: Oh! “If you can dream it, you can have it.” Something like that?
Maxwell Lord: [referring to Simon] I am not a loser. He’s a loser! And don’t you ever believe a word that man said. He’s a liar, and he’s wrong. And he will rue the day he walked away from me. And you. You are going to be so proud to be my son.
Maxwell Lord: You’ll see. Everyone will.
Maxwell Lord: Dr. Minerva. You look breathtaking.
Barbara Minerva: Thank you. You know, we have to go to these sort of things for work a lot, so I’ve probably worn this dress a million times. Actually, no. I just bought this today. I never look like this. Not even close. Took me a long time to get ready.
Maxwell Lord: Biotin. You should try it. Makes you glow like a teenager. Reverses the clock. Never accept the limitations of nature.
Barbara Minerva: Yeah, no.
Maxwell Lord: Especially not a beautiful woman like you.
Handsome Man: Diana. Diana.
Diana Prince: Excuse me. I don’t even know you. So please stop following me.
Handsome Man: I wish we had more time.
Diana Prince: Why did you say that? Don’t say that to me. You don’t even know me.
Handsome Man: Yes, I do.
[he puts his watch in her hand]
Handsome Man: I can save today. But you can save the world.
Diana Prince: [as the handsome man turns into Steve] Steve?
Steve Trevor: Diana.
Diana Prince: But how?
Steve Trevor: I don’t know.
Diana Prince: [she embraces him] Oh, my God. It’s you.
Diana Prince: I missed you.
Diana Prince: So what do you remember?
Steve Trevor: I remember taking the plane up. And then nothing, really. Nothing. But somehow, I know I’ve been someplace since then. Someplace that’s, I can’t really put words to it. But it’s good. And then I woke up here.
Steve Trevor: [referring to waking up in a futon] Well, not comfortable. And really a bit backwards if I’m being really honest with you. I mean, for a futuristic time like this. Nineteen…
Diana Prince: Eighty-four.
Steve Trevor: 1984.
Steve Trevor: [to Diana] Would you like to see my futon?
Steve Trevor: [referring to the apartment] You don’t have to tell me. The place is a mess. Cheese on demand. I spent all morning cleaning his bedroom, but he seems to me to be an engineer. Lots of pictures of himself. Not what I would do, but to each his own.
Diana Prince: Oh, so this is how you found me.
Steve Trevor: Yeah, the phone book. I guess some things are just future-proof.
Diana Prince: So you went to my apartment?
Steve Trevor: [referring to the exercise bike] Yeah, I tried to use the bike at first. I couldn’t really figure out how to get it going, so I ran over and saw you come back. And I was stunned. There you were. So I just followed you, like a creep. Diana, look at you. It’s like not one day has passed.
Diana Prince: I can’t say the same thing about you.
Steve Trevor: [looking at himself in the mirror and seeing the handsome man’s reflection] He’s got it. No, I like him.
Diana Prince: He’s great. But all I see is you.
Maxwell Lord: [after he takes the Dreamstone from Barbara] “One great wish.” I’ve been waiting. I wish to be you. The Dreamstone itself.
Steve Trevor: [after they’ve spent the night together] I’ve been eating Pop-Tarts all morning, and I’ve had about three pots of coffee. This place is amazing.
Diana Prince: This place?
Steve Trevor: Yeah. You know, if I really think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever been in a room more amazing.
Steve Trevor: Let’s just stay here.
Diana Prince: Forever.
Diana Prince: [they start kissing] Although, I should probably go and figure out how a stone brought my boyfriend back in someone else’s body.
Steve Trevor: That’s a fair point. Let’s go.
Steve Trevor: [referring to his jacket] This is dynamite. What do you think?
Diana Prince: Yeah. Yeah.
Steve Trevor: Huh? Right? I saw a couple of magazine pictures. They roll these up.
Diana Prince: I think we can do better.
Steve Trevor: [referring to his pants] Look at all the pockets in this. There are pockets here. There are pockets all over the pant. American issue bag. Adjustable. Parachute pants?
Diana Prince: Yeah…
Steve Trevor: Does everybody parachute now?
Steve Trevor: [referring to another outfit] “Too much” in a good way, or a bad way? Right?
Diana Prince: In a bad way.
Diana Prince: [referring to another outfit] Now that’s great. It’s beautiful.
Steve Trevor: Yeah. I would absolutely never wear it. I feel like a pirate.
Diana Prince: Steve.
Steve Trevor: Who would wear this?
Steve Trevor: Diana, have you seen these shoes?
Diana Prince: Let’s keep the shoes.
Steve Trevor: Let’s keep the shoes. Yes!
Diana Prince: [as they are walking through the grounds of the museum] It’s all art.
Steve Trevor: Yeah.
[Steve stops and looks at a trash can]
Diana Prince: That’s just a trash can.
Steve Trevor: It’s just a trash can. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Diana Prince: This is Steve. He’s my…
Steve Trevor: Old friend.
Diana Prince: Yeah.
Barbara Minerva: Hi, old friend Steve. I’m Barbara, Diana’s new friend.
Diana Prince: [referring to Max taking the Dreamstone] Do you know where he took it?
Barbara Minerva: No, I have no idea.
Diana Prince: Then I’ll tell you what we find out. Let’s go.
Steve Trevor: I like your pants very much.
Barbara Minerva: Oh, thanks. Yeah. Call me. Or not. Whatever. But I’d be curious.
Steve Trevor: [referring to the bracelet left behind from the stone] You look like you saw a ghost.
Diana Prince: I did. There were many Gods, and they did different things for different reasons. One was making objects like this. There are universal elements in this world, and when they’re imbued into something, they can become very, very powerful. Like my Lasso of Truth. The truth is what powers it, not me. The truth is bigger than all of us.
Diana Prince: But what is this?
Steve Trevor: I don’t know. It brought me back. Love or hope, maybe?
Diana Prince: Maybe. Well, whatever it is, I can promise you this is too powerful for Maxwell Lord. We need to find this guy.
Steve Trevor: You have a plane that can fly from here to Cairo in one shot? That is amazing.
Diana Prince: Yeah, but we can’t get you on one because you don’t have a passport.
Steve Trevor: I don’t want to get on one, I want to fly one. I want to fly the plane. I want to fly this plane. Yeah?
Diana Prince: [referring to the jet they are trying steal from the Smithsonian] Can you get us up there?
Steve Trevor: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I just have to pick up speed first, and then I’ll take off. The way I fly, they will never find us.
Diana Prince: Oh, I forgot to tell you.
Steve Trevor: What?
Diana Prince: Radar. I can’t explain now, but they’ll see us anywhere, even in the dark.
Steve Trevor: Well, will they shoot at us? Well, s**t, Diana.
Diana Prince: [as they are trying to steal the jet] My father hid Themyscira from the world, and I’ve been trying to learn how he did it.
Steve Trevor: Did what?
Diana Prince: Made something invisible. But in fifty years, I’ve only done it once.
Steve Trevor: Well, now’s not a bad time to start trying. How long does it last?
Diana Prince: I don’t know. It was just a coffee cup, then I lost it.
Steve Trevor: [as he looks out the window of the jet] An invisible jet.
Diana Prince: You know, it’s the one thing. The one thing that’s always been you to me.
Steve Trevor: What?
Diana Prince: Flight. Your gift. I’ll never understand it.
Steve Trevor: It’s so easy, really. It’s wind and air, and knowing how to ride it. How to catch it. How to join with it. Yeah. It’s like anything, really.
FBI Agent: This should keep you busy for a while. Anything else I can get you? Coffee? Tea? Me?
Barbara Minerva: I don’t need anything from you, and I’m done.
FBI Agent: You’re done? Hey, you don’t have to be mean about it.
Barbara Minerva: [as she’s hitting the drunken man that was harassing her] She’s right. It’s not that hard. Yeah, I think I get it now. His body weight does do all the work. So easy. I think I could do this all night long!
Diana Prince: Max Lord, you’re putting yourself and everyone else in grave danger. I need you to give me the stone. What happened to it?
Maxwell Lord: You’re looking at it.
Barbara Minerva: I haven’t figured out exactly what the stone is, but I’ve found historical images of it.
Diana Prince: From where?
Barbara Minerva: That’s the weird thing. From everywhere.
Diana Prince: The stone has traveled the world to seemingly random and different places, but they all have one thing in common.
Steve Trevor: What?
Diana Prince: Their civilizations collapsed catastrophically, without a trace as to why.
Steve Trevor: You don’t think the stone could have, do you?
Diana Prince: I don’t know what to think, Steve. I can only hope I’m wrong.
Diana Prince: So you’re a Mayan?
Babajide: I’m a citizen of the world.
Diana Prince: It says your name is Frank.
Babajide: Yeah. Most of what I know is a past-life thing.
Diana Prince: So that’s a no.
Diana Prince: Dechalafrea Ero.
Steve Trevor: What’s that?
Diana Prince: A very bad God. The God of Lies, Dolos, Mendacius, Duke of Deception. He’s been called by many names. But if he’s the one who empowered that stone, there has to be a trick.
Barbara Minerva: What do lies have to do with granting wishes? It seems more like a Dreamstone to me.
Steve Trevor: Wishes with a trick. The Monkey’s Paw. Beware what you wish for. It grants your wish, but takes your most valued possession. Diana, your powers.
Barbara Minerva: What’s more precious than what you wish for?
Diana Prince: How do we stop this?
Babajide: The legend said it can only be stopped by destroying the stone itself, or give back what was given. My people couldn’t do the first thing, and refused to do the second. Now the culture’s destroyed. Wiped from the face of the Earth.
Steve Trevor: No one renounced their wish?
Diana Prince: But the stone is already destroyed.
Barbara Minerva: What? When?
Diana Prince: [referring to Max] Maybe it’s him. He’s become it somehow.
Steve Trevor: But how would that happen?
Barbara Minerva: I mean, if he wished for… No, that’s crazy. No.
Steve Trevor: If we destroy it, if we destroy him, all the wishes go back.
Barbara Minerva: What are you talking about? No. I’m not going to be a part of that. No.
Steve Trevor: Or if everyone renounces their wish.
Barbara Minerva: No, there has to be a better way.
Diana Prince: We don’t know enough. We just don’t know enough. But what we do know is that we need to stop him before he grants any more.
Steve Trevor: Stopping him might not be enough, Diana. Wishes have been made.
Maxwell Lord: Remember when I told you that I would be number one? Do you remember? Your dad? Well, I’m inches away. Huh? I know it’s hard. I know. But listen, I also know what you wish for, and I wish for it too. Do you hear that? I wish for it too.
Alistair: I just wish I could be with you.
Maxwell Lord: No! You don’t use your one wish like that, Alistair. You don’t wish for something that you already have. You wish for greatness, for success. That’s why I’m doing all of this. Don’t you see that my greatness is your greatness? Huh?
Alistair: Then I wish for your greatness.
Maxwell Lord: Wait a minute. Have I asked for your wish before?
White House Staffer: Yesterday. A Porsche.
Maxwell Lord: What is it with you aides and Porsches?
Maxwell Lord: How’s traffic?
Driver: Huh? Terrible.
Maxwell Lord: Don’t you wish it wasn’t? And that everywhere you went parted like the great Red Sea?
Driver: Of course I wish that. Sadly, ain’t going to happen.
Steve Trevor: Diana, I know it’s been hard.
Diana Prince: You don’t know. You don’t.
Steve Trevor: But we… It can’t go on like this.
Diana Prince: I can’t talk about this.
Steve Trevor: We have to talk about it.
Diana Prince: Steve, I can’t talk about this!
Diana Prince: I give everything I have, every day. And I’m happy to. But this one thing. You’re all that I’ve wanted for so long. You’re the only joy I’ve had, or even asked for.
Steve Trevor: I am so sorry, but that’s crazy. There’s a world out there full of so many better guys, for one. I mean, how about this guy? How about him?
Diana Prince: I don’t want him. I want you.
Diana Prince: Why, for once, can’t I just have this one thing, Steve? This one thing.
Steve Trevor: I’m not sure we have a choice.
Diana Prince: Well, I do have a choice. And I can’t give you up. I can’t. So I won’t. So we need to stop him, so we can figure that out. There has to be another way. Has to.
Diana Prince: [as Steve asks about the armor of Asteria] Her name was Asteria. She was our greatest warrior. When mankind enslaved the Amazons, my mother freed us. But someone had to stay behind to hold back the tide of men so the others could escape to Themyscira. My people gave up all of their armor to make her one suit strong enough to take on the whole world. And Asteria sacrificed herself for a better day for others.
Steve Trevor: That’s incredible.
Diana Prince: When I came here, I searched for her. But all I could find was her armor.
Diana Prince: [referring going to the White House] Steve, I’m going. You need to stay.
Steve Trevor: No. No. Listen to me. You’re getting weaker, Diana. What if you fall?
Diana Prince: I won’t.
Steve Trevor: You might. We don’t know that. There has to be another way in.
Maxwell Lord: What do you wish for?
POTUS: What is there to wish for but more?
Maxwell Lord: [to POTUS] And you know what I’d like? I would want all of your power, influence, authority. All the respect you command, and the command everyone must respect. I mean, what else is there?
Maxwell Lord: [as Diana ties him up with her Lasso] Well, aren’t you resourceful?
Diana Prince: Come with me before you do any more damage, Max.
Maxwell Lord: No. I don’t think so. Remove this woman, please, permanently.
Barbara Minerva: [to Diana] I can’t let you stop Max. You’re not the only one with something to lose. Turns out wishing to be like you came with some surprises.
Maxwell Lord: Oh, how sweet. Defending your love. Huh? What do you wish for? Do you want to be a real boy?
Steve Trevor: No. Just not to be handcuffed to you, but now I am.
Diana Prince: [as they’re fighting] Listen. You have no idea what you’re dealing with. I’m not what you think. You can’t possibly understand, or handle…
Barbara Minerva: Oh, I can’t possibly understand? Oh, dumb little old me. Dumb little, poor little nothing, nobody me. I couldn’t possibly handle it.
Diana Prince: No, Barbara. That’s not what I’m saying.
Barbara Minerva: Well, I’m handling it beautifully. And I’m not giving it back!
Barbara Minerva: [after she helps Max escape] You’ve always had everything, while people like me have had nothing. Well, now it’s my turn. And you are not taking it from me. Ever!
Diana Prince: But what is it costing you?
Barbara Minerva: What is it costing me?
Diana Prince: If it’s the Monkey’s Paw, it takes as much as it gives. Yes, you’re strong, but what did you lose, Barbara? Where’s your warmth, your joy, your humanity? You’re attacking innocent men, Barbara. Look at yourself.
Barbara Minerva: Forget about me. What is it costing you?
Barbara Minerva: [to Diana] Yeah. That’s right. Get used to it. If you go after Max Lord, or hurt him in any way, I will destroy you.
Steve Trevor: Diana, listen to me. I had a great life.
Diana Prince: Steve.
Steve Trevor: And you only made it better. But you know what you need to do. The world needs you.
Diana Prince: I’ll never love again.
Steve Trevor: I pray that isn’t true. There’s a wonderful, big world out there. This crazy new world. And I am so happy I got to see it. But it deserves you.
Diana Prince: [crying] I can’t say goodbye. I can’t say goodbye.
Steve Trevor: You don’t have to. I’m already gone.
Steve Trevor: [as Diana walks away from him] I’ll always love you, Diana, no matter where I am.
Diana Prince: I love you. I renounce my wish.
Steve Trevor: [as Diana is flying and remembers Steve’s words] It’s easy. It’s only wind and air, and how to ride it. How to catch it.
Maxwell Lord: You made a wish too, huh? They’re a b**ch, aren’t they? Make you pay a price, but I’ve never been one for rules. Luckily, I have a way to reverse it. The answer is always more.
Barbara Minerva: But you only get one wish.
Maxwell Lord: But I, my dear, grant the wishes. So I take what I want in return. There’s nothing in this world someone doesn’t have. I’ll rebuild my health, wish by wish, organ by organ, if I have to. I’ll be invincible.
Maxwell Lord: Tell me, what do you want? I’m feeling generous.
Barbara Minerva: I don’t want to be like anyone anymore. I want to be number one. An apex predator, like nothing there’s ever been before.
Maxwell Lord: I like the way you think. Go on.
Maxwell Lord: [using the nation’s satellite system to broadcast globally] Citizens of the world, allow me to introduce myself. I am Max Lord, and I’m here to change your life. All you have to do is make a wish. Anything you want. Anything you dream of, you can have it. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. So just look into my eyes, and make a wish. Anything you dream of, have it.
Maxwell Lord: [as people across the world are making wishes] Take it. It’s all yours. It’s all yours for the taking! And I take your health, and your strength. Give her your rage, and your prowess. And I take your power. I take your life force. Yes. Yes! That’s right. You’re doing great! It’s all yours.
Alistair: I wish you were here, daddy. I wish you’d come back. Daddy, please!
Maxwell Lord: [on TV] All you have to do is wish for it.
Alistair: I’m still here, daddy. Daddy, please!
Diana Prince: [as Barbara’s changed into Cheetah] Barbara, what did you do?
Barbara Minerva: You renounced your wish.
Diana Prince: I had to. And so do you. Nothing good is born from lies, Barbara. We’re wasting precious time.
Barbara Minerva: Even now, patronizing me.
Diana Prince: Barbara, I know you’re in there. Please. Please, renounce your wish. It’s over. Please! Renounce your wish.
Barbara Minerva: Never!
Diana Prince: Then I’m so sorry.
[she pulls Barbara underwater and a loose wire electrocutes her]
Diana Prince: Why are you doing this? Don’t you have enough?
Maxwell Lord: Why not more? Why not wish for more?
Diana Prince: But they don’t know what you’re taking from them.
Maxwell Lord: We want what we want! Just like you did! So make a wish.
Maxwell Lord: It’s too late, Diana. They already heard me. Already wished! And those that haven’t yet, oh, they will!
Maxwell Lord: Poor Diana. Why be such a hero? You could have kept your pilot, and your powers, if only you’d join me. Want to reconsider? I’m a forgiving man! You want him back? Just say the word. You can have it all! You just have to want it!
Diana Prince: I’ve never wanted anything more. But he’s gone, and that’s the truth. And everything has a price. One I’m not willing to pay. Not anymore.
Diana Prince: This world was a beautiful place just as it was. And you cannot have it all. You can only have the truth. And the truth is enough. The truth is beautiful. So look at this world, and look at what your wish is costing it. You must be the hero. Only you can save the day. Renounce your wish if you want to save this world.
Maxwell Lord: Why would I, when it’s finally my turn? The world belongs to me! You can’t stop me. No one can!
Diana Prince: I wasn’t talking to you. I was talking to everyone else.
[we see she’s using her Lasso to communicate with the world]
Diana Prince: [as she’s communicating to the world] Because you’re not the only one who has suffered. Who wants more. Who wants them back. Who doesn’t want to be afraid anymore. Or alone. Or frightened. Or powerless. Because you’re not the only one who imagined a world where everything was different. Better. Finally. A world where they were loved and seen, and appreciated. Finally.
Diana Prince: But what is it costing you? Do you see the truth?
Maxwell Lord: Wait. My son! I can see my son!
Diana Prince: Save him, Max.
Maxwell Lord: I have to save my son.
Maxwell Lord: My Alistair. I renounce my wish!
Alistair: I’m so glad I wished you’d come. I knew it would work.
Maxwell Lord: No. That is not why I’m back. No. I’ve been lying to you. I’m not a great guy. In fact, I’m a pretty messed up, loser guy. And I made terrible mistakes. But you, you don’t ever have to make a wish for me to love you. I’m here because I love you. I just wish and I pray that, one day, I’ll be able to make you proud enough that you’ll be able to forgive me. And love me. Because I’m nothing to be proud of, Alistair.
Alistair: I don’t need you to make me proud. I already love you, daddy. You’re my dad.
Handsome Man: [sometime later, Diana sees the handsome man whose body Steve possessed] So beautiful. Sorry. Just talking to myself.
Diana Prince: It’s alright.
Handsome Man: [referring to the snow] It’s just that, it’s wonderful. It’s so many things.
Diana Prince: Yeah. I know what you mean.
Diana Prince: [as she sees he’s wearing one of the outfits that Steve tried on] I like your outfit.
Handsome Man: Thanks. You know, my friends, they kind of tease me about it. But it works, right?
Diana Prince: You look great.
Handsome Man: Thank you. You just made my day.
Grateful Parent: [mid-credits, after a mysterious woman catches a pillar] Excuse me. Please, you have to let me thank you, Miss…
Grateful Parent: Asteria. Wow. That’s a beautiful name.
Asteria: It’s from my culture.
Grateful Parent: I can’t thank you enough. I mean, you saved my daughter. How did you do that?
Asteria: It’s just a simple shift of weight. Takes practice. But I’ve been doing this a long time.
