Ant-Man (2015)
[from trailer]
Hank Pym: Scott, I've been watching you for a while, now. You're different. Now, don't let anyone tell you that you have nothing to offer.

[from trailer]
Hank Pym: [to Scott] Second chances don't come around all that often. I suggest you take a really close look at it. This is your chance to earn that look in your daughter's eyes, to become the hero that she already thinks you are.

[from trailer]
Hank Pym: [to Scott] It's not about saving our world. It's about saving THEIRS.

Hope Van Dyne: So how do we stop him?
Hank Pym: I know a guy...

Scott Lang: My days of breaking into places and stealing shit are over! What do you need me to do?
Hank Pym: ...I want you to break into a place and steal some shit.
Scott Lang: ...makes sense.

[Scott shrinks himself]
Hank Pym: The world sure seems different from down here, doesn't it, Scott?
Scott Lang: Who said that?

Hank Pym: It's a trial by fire, Scott... or in this case, water.
[the bathtub fills with water, and Scott jumps out]
Hank Pym: Guess you're tougher than you thought.

Scott Lang: We're trapped, now what do we do?
Hank Pym: Do you think that's a toy tank on my key-ring?

Hank Pym: You've come for more toys for the boys?
Howard Stark: I came for the suit.

Hank Pym: Scott?
Scott Lang: Yeah?
Hank Pym: You're full of shit.
Scott Lang: Oh yeah.

Scott Lang: [raises hand] Excuse me, Dr. Pym?
Hank Pym: You don't have to raise your hand Scott.
Scott Lang: [lowers hand] Okay. I just have one question... Who are you, who is she, what the hell is going on here, and can I go back to jail now?

Hank Pym: I took on a young protégé called Darren Cross.
Scott Lang: Darren Cross. He's a big deal.
Hank Pym: But before he was a big deal he was my assistant. I thought I saw something in him, a son I never had perhaps. He was brilliant, but as we became close he began to suspect that I wasn't telling him everything. He heard rumors about what was called the Pym Particles, and he became obsessed with recreating my formula. But I wouldn't help him so he conspired against me and he voted me out of my own company.
Scott Lang: How could he do that?
Hank Pym: The board's chairman is my daughter, Hope. She was the deciding vote.

Scott Lang: I think our first move should be calling the Avengers.
Hank Pym: I spent thirty years protecting that technology from a Stark, I sure as hell don't intend to give it to another! This isn't cute technology like the Iron Man suit! This could change the techs of reality! Besides, they must already have their hands busy throwing cities out of the sky...

[Hank tells Hope the truth about her mother's death and she comes to terms with it, then Scott interrupts]

[Hank and Hope stare at Scott]
Scott Lang: I ruined the moment, didn't I?
Hank Pym: Yes, you did, yes.
Scott Lang: [Smiles and points at the kitchen] I'm gonna make some tea.

Darren Cross: All those years ago, you picked me. What did you see in me?
Hank Pym: I saw myself.
Darren Cross: Then why did you push me away?
Hank Pym: Because I saw too much of myself.

[first lines]
Hank Pym: Stark!
Howard Stark: He doesn't seem happy. Hello, Hank. You're supposed to be in Moscow.
Hank Pym: I took a detour... Through your defense lab.
[slams a vial of Pym particles on table]
Peggy Carter: Tell me that isn't what I think it is.
Hank Pym: That depends if you think it's a poor attempt to replicate my work. Even for this group, that takes nerve.
Mitchell Carson: You were instructed to go to Russia. May I remind you, Dr. Pym, that you're a soldier...
Hank Pym: I'm a scientist.
Howard Stark: Then act like one. The Pym Particle is the most revolutionary science ever developed. Help us put it to good work.
Hank Pym: I let you turned me into your errand boy, and now you try to steal my research?
Mitchell Carson: If only you'd protected Janet with such ferocity, Dr. Pym.
Hank Pym: Ah...
[Pym slams Carson's head into a desk]
Peggy Carter: Easy, Hank!
Hank Pym: You mention my wife again, and I'll show you ferocity.
Howard Stark: [as Carson stares at him] Don't look at me. You said it.

Hank Pym: I formally tender my resignation.

Hank Pym: As long as I am alive, nobody will ever get that formula.

Hank Pym: [Hank walks in on Scott and Hope kissing] When did this happen?
Hope Van Dyne: Nothing's happening.
Scott Lang: Whoa, hold on. Something's kind of happening.
Hank Pym: Well if that's the case, shoot me again.

Frank: Long time no see, Dr. Pym. How's retirement?
Hank Pym: How's your face?

Hank Pym: You're throwing 247 off balance.
Scott Lang: Wait, his name is 247?
Hank Pym: He doesn't have a name, he has a number, Scott. Do you have any idea how many ants there are?

Hank Pym: Do not screw with the regulator. If that regulator is compromised you would go sub-atomic.
Scott Lang: What does that mean?
Hank Pym: It means that you would enter a quantum realm.
Scott Lang: What does that mean?
Hank Pym: It means that you would enter a reality where all concepts of time and space become irrelevant as you shrink for all eternity. Everything that you know, and love, gone forever.
Scott Lang: Cool. Yeah. I'm... If it ain't broke...

Scott Lang: We need a fake security guard on the inside, somebody else to hack into the power supply, and a getaway guy.
Hank Pym: No, no, no, not those three wombats!


Ultimate Avengers II (2006) (V)
General Nick Fury: This one needs a clear head in the lead, Captain. You're carrying too much baggage. Widow, you'll be in command.

Hank Pym: I'm not going back to being a 2-inch superhero.

Janet Pym: [Black Widow offers her a gun] Oh, don't tempt me.

Hank Pym: [dying, last words] See? I told... I told you I could be the man you always wanted me to be.
Janet Pym: You are, Hank. You are.

Dr. Henry 'Hank' Pym: I got a hot read here...
Hawkeye: [shots are fired at them outside the building] Guess we got the right address.

Dr. Henry 'Hank' Pym: Has the premier been informed?

Dr. Henry 'Hank' Pym: Famous? Hm. Maybe it's time to talk prime-time.

[chuckling]

"The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes: Come the Conqueror (#1.18)" (2011)
Hank Pym: [about one of Kang's ships] This is of similar design to portions of Kang's time chair. Iron Man and I theorised that Kang's equipment must have some kind of temporal stasis device. Something that allows it to remain in this era, like an anchor. If we destroy that anchor, the ship would theoretically return to it's own time.
Janet Van Dyne: [sighs] I'm gonna blast it now.

Steve Rogers: Find Kang. You're the only one of us who can do it, Tony.
Tony Stark: I hate him. You know, when he's right.
Hank Pym: That's how the rest of us feel about you.

Steve Rogers: Science fiction.

Hank Pym: You are now.
