The Avengers

Nick Fury: Agent Romanoff, would you escort Dr. Banner back to his...

Bruce Banner: Back where? You rented my room.

Nick Fury: The cell was built...

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!

[Banner slowly gets upset as he looks at Romanoff, who gets unnerved]

Bruce Banner: You wanna know my secret, Agent Romanoff? You wanna know how I stay calm?

[Black Widow and Nick Fury have their hands down to grab their guns]

Steve Rogers: Doctor Banner... put down the scepter.

[Banner looks down and is shocked to see he's holding Loki's scepter; the computer beeps]

Tony Stark: Got it.

[Banner puts down the scepter and heads to the computer]

Bruce Banner: Sorry, kids. You don't get to see my little party trick after all.

Nick Fury: Having trouble sleeping?

Steve Rogers: I've been asleep for 70 years. I think I've had enough rest.

Nick Fury: [having discovered a security breach] 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 the hit, we'll have a signature within half a mile.

Tony Stark: Yeah, you'll get your cube back, no mas, no fuss.

[pause]

Tony Stark: What is Phase 2?

Steve Rogers: [drops a weapon on a table] Phase 2 is SHIELD uses the Cube to make weapons! 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...

Tony Stark: I'm sorry Nick, what were you lying?

[turns a monitor around showing a schematic of a rocket]

Steve Rogers: I was wrong, Director. The world hasn't changed a bit.

Nick Fury: You think you could make Loki tell us where the Tesseract is?

Thor: I do not know. Loki's mind is far afield. It's not just power he craves, it's vengeance, upon me. There's no pain would prise his need from him.

Nick Fury: A lot of guys think that. Until the pain starts.

Thor: What are you asking me to do?

Nick Fury: I'm asking, what are you prepared to do?

Thor: Loki is a prisoner.

Nick Fury: Then why do I feel like he's the only person on this boat that wants to be here?

World Security Council: Director Fury, the council has made a decision.

Nick Fury: I recognise the council has made a decision, but given that it's a stupid-ass decision, I've elected to ignore it.

World Security Council: It's a nuclear missile to take out the portal!

Nick Fury: Situated at the island of MANHATTAN!

Iron Man: [as the fight begins] Call it, Captain!

Captain America: Alright, listen up. Until we can close that portal, our priority's containment. Barton, I want you on that roof, eyes on everything. Call out patterns and strays. Stark, you got the perimeter. Anything gets more than three blocks out, you turn it back or you turn it to ash.

Hawkeye: [to Iron Man] Want to give me a lift?

Iron Man: Right. Better clench up, Legolas.

[Iron Man takes Hawkeye up to the roof]

Captain America: Thor, you gotta try and bottleneck that portal. Slow 'em down. You got the lightning. Light the bastards up.

[Thor swings his hammer and flies off and Captain America turns to Black Widow]

Captain America: You and me, we stay here on the ground, keep the fighting here. And Hulk?

[the Hulk turns and glares at Cap]

Captain America: Smash!

[Hulk grins and leaps away]

Tony Stark: Cap, pull the lever!

Steve Rogers: I need a minute here!

Tony Stark: Lever. Now!

Tony Stark: I thought we were having a moment.

Pepper Potts: I was having 12% of a moment.

Tony Stark: JARVIS, have you heard the tale of Jonah?

Jarvis: I wouldn't consider him a role model.

[Iron Man flies through a Leviathan]

Tony Stark: [about Loki killing Coulson] 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: Yeah, divide and conquer is great, 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 at Stuttgart.

Tony Stark: Yeah, that was just previews. This is - this is opening night. And Loki, he's a full-tilt diva, right? He wants flowers, he wants parades. He wants a monument built to the skies with his name plastered...

[Stark pauses; he and Rogers look at each other knowingly]

Tony Stark: Sonofabitch!
