Hulk (2003)
Bruce Banner: You found me!
Betty Ross: You weren't that hard to find.
Bruce Banner: ...yes, I was.

Betty Ross: All you've given Bruce is fear. Fear of life.
Father: Fear. Perhaps, Miss Ross. And loneliness, too. Yes. I feel them both. But I have lived completely once. I was so much in love. And she so much wanted a baby. My baby. I could tell from the moment she conceived that it wasn't a son I had given her, but something else. A monster, maybe. I should have put a stop to it right then, but I was curious, and that was my downfall. And as I watched this tiny life unfold, I began to imagine the horror of it, and my curiosity was replaced with compassion. But they took away my chance to cure him. Your father threw me out. I remember that day so well. Every moment. Every sensation. Walking into the house. The feeling of the handle of the knife in my hand. I knew I was doing a father's work, fulfilling a father's mercy... but then she surprised me. It was as if she and the knife merged. You cannot imagine the unbearable finality of it. And in that one moment, I took everything that was dear to me and transformed it into nothing more than a memory.

Bruce Banner: You want to go to the review board on Monday and tell them we have developed a brand new method for exploding frogs?
Betty Ross: I think there's a market for it. I mean, what if there's a plague?
Bruce Banner: What have you had, Betty, like one beer?
Betty Ross: I'm... I'm just saying... frogs start falling from the sky... who do they come to? We'll be world renowned.

Betty Ross: [after witnessing Bruce transform, and then transform back] Oh, God. It must be the nanomeds. It must be the gamma exposure. But we've never seen any effect like this before.
Bruce Banner: No. Deeper. The gamma just unleashed what was already there.
Betty Ross: Unleashed what?
Bruce Banner: Me. It.
[He begins to writhe and growl]
Betty Ross: It's okay. It's okay. What were those animals?
Bruce Banner: My father sent them. He is my father. He wanted me to change. He wanted me to change into that mindless hulk. Why would he want that?

Betty Ross: Bruce, you were going to die. And I was standing there, helpless, knowing you were going to die!

Ross: [They have Bruce sedated at a secret army base] Suppose he gets out? Has one of his little mood swings in a populated area?
Betty Ross: Yes. I'm aware of the potential danger. I'm also aware that he saved my life.
Ross: Yeah, from a mutant French poodle. I'm indebted to him for that! He also put three men in a hospital, and Talbot's barely walking!

[as the Hulk rages around San Francisco]
Betty Ross: Dad, let me talk to him!
Ross: I know he's come there to find you! I'm not gonna let him get you!
Betty Ross: Just let me try, okay, Dad? He just needs a chance to calm down!

Dr. David Banner: How little you understand, Miss Ross. And how dangerous your ignorance has become.
Betty Ross: I'm sorry?
Dr. David Banner: Don't be sorry. My son is... unique. That's why you can't relate to him. And because he is unique, the world will not tolerate his existence. Will they? But you - you try. Don't you?


The Incredible Hulk (2008)
Betty Ross: [Betty and Bruce need to get across town in New York City] The subway is probably quickest.
Bruce Banner: Me in a metal tube, deep underground with hundreds of people in the most aggressive city in the world?
Betty Ross: Right. Let's get a cab.

Samuel Sterns: If we overshoot this by even the smallest integer, we're dealing with concentrations with extraordinary levels of toxicity.
Betty Ross: You mean it could kill him.
Samuel Sterns: Kill him? Yeah, I should say so.
Bruce Banner: You should know that there's a flip side to this, too. If we miss on the low side, if we induce me and it fails, this will be very dangerous for you.
Samuel Sterns: I've always been more curious than cautious, and that's served me pretty well.

[as they're kissing, Bruce's heart monitor on his watch rapidly raises]
Bruce Banner: We can't do this.
Betty Ross: It's okay. I want to.
Bruce Banner: No. No. I can't. I can't get too excited.

Betty Ross: [yells at taxi driver] Asshole!
Bruce Banner: You know, I know a few techniques that could help you manage that anger effectively.
Betty Ross: You zip it. We're walking.
Bruce Banner: Ok.

Betty Ross: What is it like? When it happens, what do you experience?
Bruce Banner: Remember those experiments we volunteered for at Harvard? Those induced hallucination? It's a lot like that, just a thousand times amplified. It's like someone poured a litre of acid into my brain.
Betty Ross: Do you remember anything?
Bruce Banner: Just fragments. Images. There's too much noise. I can never derive anything out of it.
Betty Ross: But then it's still YOU inside of it.
Bruce Banner: No. No, it's not.
Betty Ross: I don't know. In the cave, I really felt like it knew me. Maybe your mind is in there, it's just overcharged and can't process what's happening.
Bruce Banner: I don't want to control it. I want to get rid of it.

Rick Jones: [about Noodlehead Ned] There he goes, off on another wild Hulk chase.
Betty Ross: Why did the Hulk do it, Bruce? Why did he stop you from beaming through?
Dr. Bruce Banner: It was an accident, Betty. The Hulk just showed up at the wrong time.
Betty Ross: Then it wasn't the Hulk's fault. Oh, poor monster. I hope he never comes back.
Narrator: No one hopes it more than Bruce Banner. For as long as the monster lives, he can never tell the girl in his arms how much he loves her.
