Iron Man (2008)
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: [walking in on Stark's robots trying to get him out of the Iron Man suit] What is going on here?
Tony Stark: Let's face it, this is not the worst thing you've caught me doing.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Are those bullet holes?

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: You are supposed to be halfway around the world by now.
Tony Stark: How'd she take it?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Like a champ.
Tony Stark: Why are you trying to hustle me out of here?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Your flight was scheduled to leave an hour and a half ago.
Tony Stark: It's funny, I though with it being my plane and all that it would just wait for me.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Tony, I need to speak to you about a couple of things before I get you out...
Tony Stark: I mean, doesn't it kind of defeat the whole purpose of having your own plane if it departs before you arrive?

Tony Stark: What are you trying to get rid of me for? You got plans?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: As a matter of fact, I do.
Tony Stark: I don't like it when you have plans.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: I'm allowed to have plans on my birthday.
Tony Stark: It's your birthday?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Yes.
Tony Stark: I knew that. Already?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Yeah, isn't that strange? It's the same day as last year.
Tony Stark: Well, get yourself something nice for me.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: I already did.
Tony Stark: Yeah? And?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Oh, it's very nice... very tasteful. Thank you, Mr. Stark.
Tony Stark: You're welcome, Ms. Potts.

Tony Stark: Hmmm. Your eyes are red. Tears for your long lost boss?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Tears of joy. I hate job hunting.
Tony Stark: Yeah, well, vacation's over.

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Tony, you have to go to the hospital. The doctor has to look at you.
Tony Stark: I don't have to do anything. I've been in captivity for three months. There are two things I want to do. One, I want an American cheeseburger, and the other...
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: That's enough of that.
Tony Stark: It's not what you think. I want you to call for a press conference.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Call for a press conference? What on earth for?
Tony Stark: Hogan, drive. Cheeseburger first.

Agent Phil Coulson: I'm Agent Phil Coulson with the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: That's quite a mouthful.
Agent Phil Coulson: I know. We're working on it.

Tony Stark: Pepper, uh, how big are your hands?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: What?
Tony Stark: How big are your hands?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: I don't understand why...
Tony Stark: Get down here. I need you.

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: [about Stark's old arc reactor] What do you want me to do with this?
Tony Stark: That? Destroy it. Incinerate it.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: You don't want to keep it?
Tony Stark: Pepper, I've been called many things. Nostalgic is not one of them.

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: [upon seeing Stark wearing a machine around his arm] I thought you said you were done making weapons?
Tony Stark: It isn't. This is a flight stabilizer. It's completely harmless.
[Stark is blasted back by the force of the machine]
Tony Stark: I didn't expect that.

Tony Stark: Where'd you get that dress?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: It was a birthday present... from you, actually.
Tony Stark: I got great taste, don't I? You, uh, wanna dance?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Oh, no, thank you.
Tony Stark: [leading her to the dance floor] All right, come on.

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Tony, you know that I would help you with anything, but I cannot help you if you're going to start all this again.
Tony Stark: There is nothing except this. There's no art opening, no charity, nothing to sign. There's the next mission, and nothing else.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Is that so? Well, then I quit.
Tony Stark: You stood by my side all these years while I reaped the benefits of destruction. Now that I'm trying to protect the people I've put in harm's way, you're going to walk out?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: You're going to kill yourself, Tony. I'm not going to be a part of it.
Tony Stark: I shouldn't be alive... unless it was for a reason. I'm not crazy, Pepper. I just finally know what I have to do. And I know in my heart that it's right.

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: [after Stark's one night stand with Christine] I have your clothes here; they've been dry cleaned and pressed. And there's a car waiting for you outside that will take you anywhere you'd like to go.
Christine Everheart: You must be the famous Pepper Potts.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: [smiles and nods] Indeed I am.
Christine Everheart: After all these years, Tony still has you picking up the dry cleaning.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: I do anything and everything Mr. Stark requires. Including occasionally taking out the trash. Will that be all?

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Agent Coulson, I just wanted to say thank you very much for all of your help.
Agent Phil Coulson: That's what we do. You'll be hearing from us.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: From the Strategic Homeland...
Agent Phil Coulson: [interrupting] Just call us SHIELD.

[repeated line]
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Will that be all, Mr. Stark?
Tony Stark: Yes, that will be all, Miss. Potts.

Tony Stark: Am I making you uncomfortable?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Oh, no, I always forget to wear deodorant and dance with my boss in a room full of people I work with in a dress with no back.
Tony Stark: Well, you look great, you smell great. But I could fire you if that would take the edge off.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: I don't think you could tie your shoes without me.
Tony Stark: I'd make it a week.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: A week, really? What's your social security number?
Tony Stark: [he pauses]
Tony Stark: Five...
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: [smiling] "Five?" You're missing just a couple of digits.
Tony Stark: Right, the other eight. Well, I have you for the other eight.

[Stark and Potts carry out an arc reactor transplant]
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Don't ever, ever, ever, ask me to do anything like that, ever again!
Tony Stark: I don't have anyone but you.

Tony Stark: [a hole in his chest] I just want you to reach in, and gently lift the wire out.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Is it safe?
Tony Stark: Yeah. It should be fine. It's just like Operation, just don't let it touch the socket.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: What do you mean, Operation?
Tony Stark: It's just a game, never mind. Just gently lift the wire, okay? All right...
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: You know, I... uh... I don't think that I'm qualified to do that.
Tony Stark: No, no. You're fine. You are the most capable, qualified, trustworthy person I've ever met, you'll do great. Is it too much to ask? 'Cause I really need your help here.

[Pepper sends Stark a gift: an arc reactor in a case]
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: [inscription] "Proof that Tony Stark has a heart."

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Obadiah, he-he's gone insane!
Iron Man: I know!
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: He-he built a suit!
Iron Man: Listen, you'd better get out of there! Just get out-!
[Iron Monger breaks up through the ground]
Iron Monger: Where do you think you're going?

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: [fumbling inside Stark's chest] Oh... ah... EWW, there's pus!
Tony Stark: It's not pus. It's an inorganic plasmic discharge. It's from the device, not my body.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: It smells!
Tony Stark: Yeah, it does.

Agent Phil Coulson: [about Obadiah] Looks like you were right, he was building a suit.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: I thought it'd be bigger...
[the Iron Monger attacks]

[Stark and Stane fight on the roof of the Stark Industries power plant]
Iron Man: [intercom] Potts.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Tony, are you okay?
Iron Man: Listen to me. We have to overload the arc reactor and blast the roof.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Well, how are you going to do that?
Iron Man: YOU're going to do it! Go to the central console, open up all the circuits. When I get clear, I'll let you know, and then you hit the master bypass button.

Iron Man: [under fire from Obadiah] Time to hit the button!
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: You told me not to...
Iron Man: JUST DO IT!
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: YOU'LL DIE!
Iron Man: PUSH IT!

[Pepper is reaching into Tony's chest cavity]
Tony Stark: Okay now, the copper wire - you got it?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Yeah, I've got it.
Tony Stark: Now pull it out, gently, and just make sure you don't touch the s...
Tony Stark: AH! - i-i-i-des!
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Sorry, I'm sorry!
Tony Stark: Don't touch the sides, that's what I was trying to tell you before. Now, just gently pull that out, and whatever you do, don't pull out the...
[Pepper pulls out the end, Tony's heart monitors go off]
Tony Stark: The magnet at the end of it. See, that was it. You just...
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: What?
Tony Stark: What I was trying to tell you - no, don't put it back in! Just put it over there, we have to hurry...
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: What's wrong?
Tony Stark: Oh, nothing, I'm just going into cardiac arrest, because you...
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: *What*? I thought you said this was safe!
Tony Stark: ...just yanked it out like a trout!

[Tony is going into cardiac arrest]
Tony Stark: We have to hurry. Take this, take this...
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Okay, okay...
Tony Stark: Now you have to take this wire and attach it to the base plate, there.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Okay... Tony?
Tony Stark: What?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Tony, it's gonna be okay.
Tony Stark: Is it?
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: It's gonna be okay. I-I am gonna make this okay.
Tony Stark: Let's hope.
[She reaches in again and hooks up the new heart machine - CLICK!]
Tony Stark: YAAA-OOOOOW...!
[normal voice]
Tony Stark: Was that so hard? That was fun, right?

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: [to Tony] You're all I have too, you know.

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: I would like a vodka martini, please.
Tony Stark: Okay.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Very dry, with olives, a lot of olives. Like, at least three olives.
Tony Stark: [to bartender] Two vodka martinis, extra dry, extra olives, extra... fast.

Tony Stark: [as Pepper is walking down the stairs] Hey. Ow,Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah.
Jarvis: It is a tight fit sir.
Tony Stark: Hey, Ah.
Jarvis: Sir the more you struggle the more this is going to hurt
Tony Stark: Be gentle. This is my first time.
Tony Stark: I designed this to come off, so... hey. I really should be able to...
Jarvis: Please, try not to move sir.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Whats going on here?
Tony Stark: [pauses] Lets face it. This is not the worst thing you've caught me doing.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Are those bullet holes?

[only in trailer]
Tony Stark: [about to jump out of a plane] Okay, give me a smooch for good luck, I might not make it back!
[Instead, Pepper kisses the "lips" of Stark's helmet and throws it out of the plane]
Pepper Potts: Go get 'em, boss!
Tony Stark: [diving after the helmet] You complete me!

[from trailer]
Pepper Potts: Natalie is here!
[Stark's notary enters]
Tony Stark: I want one.
Pepper Potts: No...

Tony Stark: I just want to talk to you for a minute, well, make that 30 seconds...
Pepper Potts: Okay.
[looks at her watch]
Pepper Potts: 29, 28, 27...

Tony Stark: [puts down a disgusting-looking dish]
Pepper Potts: What is that?
Tony Stark: This is your in-flight meal.
Pepper Potts: Did you just make that?
Tony Stark: Yeah. Where do you think I've been for three hours?

Pepper Potts: You know, there's only 8,011 things that I really need to talk to you about.

[looking through Natalie's resume]
Tony Stark: She's fluent in French, Italian, Russian, Latin. Who speaks Latin?
Pepper Potts: No one speaks Latin. It's a dead language.

Justin Hammer: [about Christine Everhart] She's actually doing a big spread on me for Vanity Fair. I thought I'd throw her a bone, you know. Right?
Pepper Potts: Right. Well, she did quite a spread on Tony last year.
Tony Stark: And she wrote a story as well.

Tony Stark: I need you too, that's what I'm trying to...
Pepper Potts: leave. Now.

Natalie Rushman: Well done with the new chest piece. I'm reading significantly higher output and your vitals all look promising.
Tony Stark: Yes, for the moment, I'm not dying. Thank you.
Pepper Potts: [overhears] What do you mean you're not dying? Did you just say you're dying?
Tony Stark: Is that you? No, I'm not. Not anymore.
Pepper Potts: What's going on?
Tony Stark: I was going to tell you, I didn't want you to alarm you
Pepper Potts: [interrupts] You were going to tell me? You really were dying?
Tony Stark: You didn't let me.
Pepper Potts: Why didn't you tell me that?
Tony Stark: I was going to make you an omelet and tell you.
Natalie Rushman: Hey, hey. Save it for the honeymoon. You got incoming, Tony. Looks like the fight's coming to you.
Tony Stark: Great. Pepper?
Pepper Potts: Are you okay now?
Tony Stark: I'm fine. Don't be mad, I will formally apologize...
Pepper Potts: I am mad!
Tony Stark: ...when I'm not fending off a Hammeroid attack.
Pepper Potts: Fine.
Tony Stark: We could've been in Venice.
Pepper Potts: Oh, please.

Pepper Potts: You're out of control, okay?
Iron Man: [intoxicated] I'm not out of control.
Pepper Potts: Trust me on this one.

Pepper Potts: You're not going to be happy about this.
Iron Man: Come on, you know you want to.
Pepper Potts: You just peed in the suit.
Iron Man: I know, it has a filtration system.
Pepper Potts: It's not sexy.
Iron Man: You could drink that water.

Pepper Potts: Have you been drinking?
Tony Stark: Chlorophyll.

Tony Stark: [about Natalie Rushman] Who is she?
Pepper Potts: She is from legal and she is potentially a very expensive sexual harassment lawsuit if you keep ogling her like that.

Tony Stark: How do you spell your name, Natalie?
Natalie Rushman: R-U-S-H-M-A-N.
Pepper Potts: What, are you Googling her now?
Tony Stark: I thought I was ogling her?

Pepper Potts: Tony... what're you not telling me?
Tony Stark: I don't want to go home.

Natalie Rushman: Will that be all, Mr, Stark?
Tony Stark, Pepper Potts: No...
[Pepper talking over Tony]
Pepper Potts: Yes. Yes, that will be all, Ms. Rushman.

Pepper Potts: I quit. I'm resigning. My body literally can't handle the stress. I don't know when you're going to kill yourself, or mess up the whole company...
Tony Stark: I think I did okay!

Tony Stark: I want one.
Pepper Potts: No.

Iron Man 3 (2013)
[from TV spot]
Tony Stark: [suits up] You know, it's moments like these when I realize how much of a superhero I am.
Pepper Potts: Wow!

[Tony seals Pepper in the Mark 42 armor, then she saves him from falling debris]
Pepper Potts: I got you!
Tony Stark: I got you first!

Pepper Potts: You think he'll help you... he won't.
Aldrich Killian: It's more, uh, embarrassing than that. You're here as my, uh...
Pepper Potts: Trophy.
Aldrich Killian: Yeah.

Pepper Potts: ...and all your distractions?
Tony Stark: Uh, I'm going to shave them down a bit...
[taps earpiece]
Tony Stark: Jarvis. Hey.

Tony Stark: You know what to do.
Jarvis: The Clean Slate Protocol, sir?
Tony Stark: Screw it, it's Christmas! Yes, yes!
[One by one the suits explode]
Tony Stark: [embraces Pepper] OK so far? You like it?
Pepper Potts: [crying] It'll do.

Tony Stark: See what happens when you hang out with my ex-girlfriends?
Pepper Potts: You are such a jerk!

Pepper Potts: I'm taking a shower.
Tony Stark: Okay.
Pepper Potts: And you're gonna join me.
Tony Stark: Better.

[Tony tries to embrace Pepper]
Pepper Potts: Don't!
Tony Stark: It's okay...
Pepper Potts: I'm hot, I'll hurt you!
Tony Stark: [touches Pepper] No, you won't. See? Not hot.
Pepper Potts: Am I going to be okay?
Tony Stark: No. You're in a relationship with me, nothing will ever be okay. But I had this twenty years ago when I was drunk, I can sort it out. I fix stuff.

[Pepper uses a repulsor on Killian]
Tony Stark: Honey?
Pepper Potts: Oh my god... that was really violent...

Pepper Potts: Who's the hot mess now?
[a call-back to Tony's early statement to Pepper that he was a "piping hot mess."]
Tony Stark: That's debatable. But you look great like this, the repulsor and the sports bra...
Pepper Potts: I think I understand why you don't want to give up the suits. What have I got to complain about now?
Tony Stark: Well, it's me. You'll find something.

[after being frightened by Tony's suit]
Pepper Potts: I'm sleeping downstairs! Tinker with that!

The Avengers (2012)
Pepper Potts: Is this about the Avengers? Which I know nothing about.
Tony Stark: The Avengers initiative was scrapped, I thought. And I didn't even qualify.
Pepper Potts: I didn't know that either.
Tony Stark: Apparently I'm volatile, self-obsessed, and don't play well with others.
Pepper Potts: That I did know.

Pepper Potts: Levels are holding steady... I think.
Tony Stark: Of course they are, I was directly involved. Which brings me to my next question: how does it feel to be a genius?
Pepper Potts: Well, ha, I really wouldn't know now, would I?
Tony Stark: What do you mean? All this came from you.
Pepper Potts: No. All this came from that.
[Points to the energy in his chest plate]
Tony Stark: Give yourself some credit, please. Stark Tower is your baby. Give yourself... 12% of the credit.
Pepper Potts: Twelve percent?
Tony Stark: An argument can be made for fifteen.
Pepper Potts: Twelve percent for my baby?
Tony Stark: Well, I did do all the heavy lifting. Literally, I lifted the heavy things. And sorry, but the security snafu? That was on you.
Pepper Potts: Oooooh.
Tony Stark: My private elevator...
Pepper Potts: You mean OUR elevator?
Tony Stark: ...was teeming with sweaty workmen. I'm going to pay for that comment about percentages in some subtle way later, aren't I?
Pepper Potts: Not gonna be that subtle.
Tony Stark: I'll tell you what. Next building's gonna say 'Potts' on the tower.
Pepper Potts: On the lease.
Tony Stark: ...Call your mom, can you bunk over?

Agent Phil Coulson: [via phone] Mr Stark, we need to talk.
Tony Stark: You have reached the life model decoy of Tony Stark, please leave a message.
Agent Phil Coulson: This is urgent.
Tony Stark: Then leave it urgently.
[Coulson enters Stark's penthouse, hanging up his cellphone]
Tony Stark: Security breach.
Tony Stark: [to Pepper] That's on you.
Agent Phil Coulson: Mr Stark.
Pepper Potts: Phil! Come in.
Tony Stark: "Phil?" Uh, his first name is "Agent."

Tony Stark: I thought we were having a moment.
Pepper Potts: I was having 12% of a moment.

Tony Stark: You're good on this end. The rest is up to you.
Pepper Potts: [on the other line] You disconnected the transition lines? Are we off the grid?
Tony Stark: Stark Tower is about to become a beacon of self-sustaining clean energy.
Pepper Potts: Wow. So maybe our reactor takes over and it actually works?
Tony Stark: I assume. Light her up.
[as Iron Man flies to the Stark Tower building, the power is switched on and the Stark sign lights up]
Pepper Potts: How does it look?
Tony Stark: Like Christmas, but with more... *me.*

Pepper Potts: What is all of this?
Tony Stark: This is, uh...
[Different profiles appears in holographic form floating in the air in front of Stark and Pepper]
Tony Stark: This.
[Screens appear of Captain America in action, the Hulk roaring as he attacks the Army at Culver University, and another is of Loki and the Tesseract, to which Stark and Pepper look on in awe]
Pepper Potts: I'm going to take the jet to D.C. tonight.
Tony Stark: Tomorrow.
Pepper Potts: You've got homework. You've got a lot of homework.

Pepper Potts: Come on in. We're celebrating.
Tony Stark: Which is why he can't stay.
[flashes Coulson phony smile]
Agent Phil Coulson: We need you to look this over as soon as possible.
Tony Stark: I don't like being handed things...
Pepper Potts: [cuts Tony off] That's fine, because I love to be handed things.
[Pepper exchanges her champagne glass for Coulson's tablet]
Pepper Potts: So, let's trade.
[She takes Tony's champagne and gives him the tablet]
Pepper Potts: Thank you.
Tony Stark: [to Coulson] Official consulting hours are between 8 and 5 every other Thursday.

Maria Hill: Thor, what's his play?
Thor: He has an army, called the Chitauri. They're not of Asgard or any world known. He means to lead them against your people. They will win him the Earth. In return, I suspect, for the Tesseract.
Maria Hill: An army. From outer space.
Pepper Potts: So he's building another portal. That's what he needs Erik Selvig for.
Thor: Selvig?
Pepper Potts: He's an astrophysicist.
Thor: He's a friend.
Bruce Banner: Loki has them under some kind of spell. Along with one of ours.
Maria Hill: I wanna know why Loki let us take him. He's not leading an army from here.
Pepper Potts: I don't think we should be focusing on Loki. That guy's brain is a bag full of cats. You can smell crazy on him.
Thor: Take care how you speak. Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard. And he is my brother.
Bruce Banner: He killed eighty people in two days.
Thor: He's adopted.

"Iron Man: Armored Adventures: Whiplash (#1.5)" (2009)
Tony Stark: [in his Iron Man suit, having just saved Pepper from danger] You're gonna be okay now, Pep... per... man... Whoever you are.
Pepper Potts: Thanks... Tony.
Tony Stark: Tony! I think you have me confused with someone else.
Pepper Potts: Relax. I know it's you. I'm not stupid. My dad is a professional investigator, remember? And besides, no one can go to the bathroom as much as Tony Stark does.
Tony Stark: [opening his mask so she can see his face] How long have you known?
Pepper Potts: I didn't! Oh, man, but I do now! I can't believe you are really Iron Man! And I can't believe you fell for that. I thought maybe you were, I tried to ask you, but... wow! Ooh, we're flying. This so awesome!
Tony Stark: You stink, Pepper. I'll take you to Rhodey's house, I'll meet you there. But when all this is over, I'll have to wipe your memory.
Pepper Potts: Really?
Tony Stark: No. But I'm thinking about dropping you.

Pepper Potts: I can't believe you nerds didn't tell me! Didn't you trust me? I'm crazy trustworthy. I could have totally helped you fight crime weeks ago. Oh! Woah, we should be fighting crime right now!
Tony Stark: Pepper! Shh.
Pepper Potts: Sorry. But seriously, why didn't you tell me?
Tony Stark: I tried to tell you a million times. But you won't stop talking long enough to let me!
Pepper Potts: Ugh... wha... oh... Seriously?

Pepper Potts: Yay Team Iron Man!

"Iron Man: The Mandarin's Revenge/The Mandarin's Death Ray/No One Escapes the Mandarin (#1.4)" (1966)
[first lines]
Iron Man: An emergency call on my built-in radio transceiver...
Pepper Potts: Calling Iron Man. This is Pepper Potts, calling Iron Man: Mr Stark is urgently needed in his factory. You must locate him at once! That is all.
Iron Man: It shouldn't be too difficult for me to find Tony Stark, considering I AM him under this iron exterior. I wonder if Pepper suspects that her playboy boss and Iron Man are one and the same...

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: What have you gotten yourself into?

Tony Stark: Pepper, I know. Can you arrange it?

Tony Stark: My life's work, everything I built! Countless lives RUINED by my inventions! I HAVE TO DESTROY THEM!
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: You can't do this alone! It's too much!
Tony Stark: I don't have a choice. Make sure Obie does what I told him. He'll need convincing. Look, I-I have to go on a... business trip.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: What trip? There's nothing on your calendar.
Tony Stark: Just came up.
