The Incredible Hulk Returns (1988) (TV)
Doctor David Banner: The wrath of God in a bottle.

Donald Blake: Then you'll step back in front of the death ray.
Doctor David Banner: Life ray for me.

Thor: When the troll's upon you, you're a mighty fighter.
Doctor David Banner: You're not so bad yourself.
Thor: I know.

[David looks out his window, and sees Jack McGee]
Donald Blake: What is it?
David: Trouble.
Thor: Trouble?

Doctor David Banner: [tape-recording himself] Nearly two years of concentrated research, hard work, and the very real possibility of curing my... problem... seems at last to be here.

Doctor David Banner: [answering the phone] Main lab.
Maggie Shaw: Mr. Banion, this is the woman you love and she's lonely. And she's also a lot softer in all the right places than that Transponder of yours.
Doctor David Banner: You'll get no argument from me on that score.

Donald Blake: You are David Banner, aren't you? If you're not, I'll just apologize profusely and get out of here. I just couldn't let you zap yourself with that thing until I was sure.
Doctor David Banner: Who are you?
Donald Blake: You had a beard the last time I knew you. Harvard, ten years ago? You were the guest genius at the time, the resident Merlin and me, I was... I was in trouble a lot.
Doctor David Banner: Blake? Donald Blake?
Doctor David Banner: The one and only.

Doctor David Banner: You were in the mountains, Donald. At the altitude you reached, oxygen deprivation can easily happen, which makes one experience delusions...
Donald Blake: A hallucination? I wish. That's what I thought at first, but some time ago, back in America, I woke up... and there HE was, looking at me! He's been shadowing me around ever since, popping out like a magic rabbit from a hat! He isn't a hallucination, Bruce. He's real.

Doctor David Banner: [storming around] After the attempt at the Institute, I should've known what they'd try next. I should have known. What happened to Maggie is my fault.
Donald Blake: David, stop beating on yourself, okay? Otherwise your big green friend will return and everything will go to hell.

Donald Blake: Wait a minute, David. This thing can cure you, and you're going to fry it? David! Come on, let's do the experiment.
Doctor David Banner: The repair work to the computer is incomplete, there's just not enough time. So... for me, it's back to square one.
[Donald watches sadly as David puts the Trasnponder controls into the microwave, he turns it on and watches the controls slowly melt and catch fire]

Doctor David Banner: You know, you were there to help me, fighting alongside Thor. It kind of looks like you're becoming more heroic.
Donald Blake: Yeah, I guess there's something to learn from a big goof.

Donald Blake: Well, I think it's time to grab my Mister Big and head off...
[Blake and Banner watch Thor happily jogging alongside a woman]
Doctor David Banner: She's very attractive. He won't like that.
Donald Blake: So what else is new?

Doctor David Banner: What happened last night wasn't Thor's fault, it was yours and yours alone!
Donald Blake: David, you're not being fair to me.
Doctor David Banner: For two years now, *two years* this change of mine hasn't occurred, and do you know why? Because I've stayed away from people like you. People who start trouble and then run away. Well, you're not running away this time, Don, this time you're going to help wipe up the milk that you spilled! Do you understand?

Doctor David Banner: [speaking into the recorder as transponder is reconfiguring itself] I've turned the transponder into a kind of giant Chinese puzzle. A puzzle to which only I have the key. And that key is a mechanism located in the laser field rotator, which reverses Gamma polarity. Exposure to the rays will target the sporadic mutations within the cells of the subject - myself - and cause complete remission.

[David Banner walks outside onto the front porch, holding a pot of coffee and he waves at Maggie Shaw]
Doctor David Banner: Good morning!
Maggie Shaw: Good morning!
[David smiles as he points at a fresh pot of coffee and Maggie giggles]
Maggie Shaw: Great!

[Maggie walks into the room as David carries a tray of food]
Maggie Shaw: Uh-uh, button me!
Doctor David Banner: You got it!
[David sets down the tray and then he looks at the button of her shirt]
Doctor David Banner: Hmm.
[David blows on the side of Maggie's neck and she chuckles]
Maggie Shaw: Tickles!
Doctor David Banner: It's supposed to tickle. You smell delicious. Mmm.
[David buttons Maggie's shirt, he moves the hair away from her neck and he kisses Maggie's neck]
Doctor David Banner: You taste pretty good, too.
[Maggie turns to David and wraps her arms around him]
Maggie Shaw: Come live here with me, David. It only makes sense.
Doctor David Banner: I'm here most of the time anyway, aren't I? It's best this way for now, Maggie. Believe me.

[Thor looks around the Joshua Lambert Institute laboratory and then he looks at Donald Blake and David Banner]
Thor: Your century's version of hell, eh, Blake?
Donald Blake: Is *this* a hallucination?
[David, still shocked, shakes his head]
Thor: And this must be Banner the Warlock. All in good time.
[Thor holds out his hand, Blake gives Thor his hammer and Thor walks off to a control panel]
Thor: First things first.
Donald Blake: What're you doing?
Thor: I'm thirsty.
Donald Blake: What're you doing?
Thor: I'm *thirsty!*
[Thor grabs a console panel with his hands]
Doctor David Banner: Don't let him touch those panels, Don!
[Thor pulls a panel off a control console and a burst of sparks shoot out]
Doctor David Banner: Stop him! He'll wreck everything, Don! Make him stop!
Donald Blake: You maniac! Hold it for a second!
Thor: Drink! Is there nothing to drink in this alchemist's den?
Donald Blake: I seriously doubt it.

[after yelling at Thor, David closes his eyes and tries to calm down]
Doctor David Banner: I must not lose control.
Donald Blake: David, he - he, he's harmless!
Thor: Is he praying?
Donald Blake: I'm sending you back, give me that hammer!
Thor: *Wait!* I won't hurt him!
[Thor looks at David, who has his eyes closed and is trying to keep calm]
Thor: All right, look, you. Blake says that you are wise in many things, but if you show him how to cut the cord that Odin has spun between us...
Donald Blake: Thor, hold it!
Thor: - or if your witchcraft should harm Blake, then I lose my chance to enter Valhalla! And you have never seen anger...
[Thor stops as he sees David isn't listening, and he looks at Blake]
Thor: He is praying.

Donald Blake: David, it's okay...
[David opens his eyes and he looks at Thor]
Doctor David Banner: Go away. Leave me alone, please. You just don't understand. You don't know what could happen, *please.*
[Thor starts lightly pushing David back, slowly pushing him him into the main control area]
Thor: Go away, eh?
Donald Blake: Don't push him!
Thor: Leave you be, eh?
Donald Blake: Stop it!
Thor: Sounds more like insult than hospitality!
Donald Blake: What're you doing, you jerk?
Thor: An insult is something I can always understand!
Donald Blake: Don't push him!
[Thor grabs David by the collar and he is struggling to keep calm]
Doctor David Banner: Don't make me angry.
Thor: He's braver than I thought, Blake!
Donald Blake: Stop it, damn it!
[Thor swats David away as he faces Blake]
Thor: Leave me...
[after David collides onto a control unit and screams while he is electrocuted, Thor rushes over to pull David away and then he throws David to the floor]
Thor: [Blake goes to David and rolls him onto his back, but Blake backs away when he sees David's pupils are white and he is about to start changing into the Hulk]
Thor: Odin's beard.
Donald Blake: Good God.

[David and Maggie sit on the front lawn, covered in a blanket and watching the fire]
Maggie Shaw: I miss Don.
Doctor David Banner: So do I. He certainly could liven up the party.
Maggie Shaw: I don't need anything livelier than this tonight. This is just fine.
Doctor David Banner: I feel the same.
[Maggie frowns as they watch the fire]
Maggie Shaw: I'll always love you.
Doctor David Banner: And I'll always love you.

[David picks up a tray and he walks off into the kitchen]
Maggie Shaw: You sound like you're protecting me from something.
Doctor David Banner: What could I possibly be protecting you from?
[Maggie sits on a chair and she looks at David in the kitchen]
Maggie Shaw: The monster in you, maybe?
[David looks at Maggie, a bit nervous]
Doctor David Banner: Monster?
Maggie Shaw: Yes. You remember, you told me once, that before we met, you'd gone through a long period of self-destructive behavior. You didn't go into any details, even though I tried *all* my feminine wiles.
Doctor David Banner: Yes, you did.
Maggie Shaw: But you called it your monster. Your Mr. Hyde.
Doctor David Banner: It's been two years since my "Mr. Hyde" has shown his ugly face. Why are you concerned now?
Maggie Shaw: You were very restless in your sleep again last night. It worries me when you're like that. I feel like I can't do anything to help yuo.
Doctor David Banner: You help me more than I can ever tell you.
Maggie Shaw: Try, please. I think I need that too this morning.
Doctor David Banner: Okay. I use you.
[Maggie looks unnerved]
Doctor David Banner: Your image. For control, I concentrate on you. As the old song goes, and I make it through.
[David walks around into the living room to join Maggie]
Doctor David Banner: It's a little like A.A., I suppose. You get through one nightmare at a time.
Maggie Shaw: Well, it was the same for me after Michael died.
[Maggie stands up and faces David]
Maggie Shaw: But I survived by losing control, by just letting loose.
Doctor David Banner: Some things, Maggie, you can't just "let loose."

[Donald Blake walks to David Banner after Zack Lambert walks away]
Donald Blake: Third degree, huh?
Doctor David Banner: Oh, it doesn't matter in a few days.
Donald Blake: And you'll step back in front of the
[whispers]
Donald Blake: death ray!
Doctor David Banner: *Life* ray for me, I hope.
[David starts to walk off and Blake walks alongside him]
Donald Blake: I hope so too, David. I really do. At the same time, I feel kind of jealous, like, uh, like a lepur, who finds another lepur to be pals with and then his pal goes and gets cured!
Doctor David Banner: Well, using your analogy and sticking with it, you're like the lepur that *causes* the disease to happen.
Donald Blake: Wait a minute. What does that mean, David?
Doctor David Banner: Don, Thor only happens when you call him up and that's the rock bottom truth of it. I have no choice. The creature in me is uncontrollable but you *control* Thor. Now there must be a reason for that, only you don't want to know what it is.
Donald Blake: Uh, ok. You might be right. But what do I do, then? A hypnotic regression to dig up an answer?
Doctor David Banner: Why don't you ask Thor?
Donald Blake: Ask Thor?
Doctor David Banner: Yeah.
[Blake thinks it over]
Donald Blake: Look, I, uh - I need to take a walk. I need some fresh air.
Doctor David Banner: In L.A.?
[Blake laughs and David hands him his keys]
Doctor David Banner: Here you go. The hammer's in the apartment. To get it, you'll need some keys.
Donald Blake: Right.


The Avengers (2012)
Steve Rogers: Doctor Banner, now might be a good time for you to get angry.
Bruce Banner: That's my secret, Captain: I'm always angry.
[Banner hulks out and punches the Leviathan]

Steve Rogers: 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.
Steve Rogers: An army. From outer space.
Bruce Banner: So he's building another portal. That's what he needs Erik Selvig for.
Thor: Selvig?
Bruce Banner: He's an astrophysicist.
Thor: He's a friend.
Natasha Romanoff: Loki has them under some kind of spell. Along with one of ours.
Steve Rogers: I wanna know why Loki let us take him. He's not leading an army from here.
Bruce Banner: 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: Have a care how you speak! Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard and he is my brother!
Natasha Romanoff: He killed eighty people in two days.
Thor: He's adopted.

Steve Rogers: Word is you can find the cube.
Bruce Banner: Is that the only word on me?
Steve Rogers: Only word I care about.

Security Guard: Are you an alien?
Bruce Banner: What?
Security Guard: From outer space, an alien.
Bruce Banner: No.
Security Guard: Well then son, you've got a condition.

Natasha Romanoff: Doctor Banner... Bruce, you gotta fight it. This is just what Loki wants. We're gonna be okay. Listen to me. We're gonna be okay, right? I swear on my life I will get you out of this! You will walk away, and never...
Bruce Banner: [snaps] YOUR LIFE...?
[Hulks out]

Bruce Banner: Should have got paid up front, Banner.
Natasha Romanoff: [comes up behind him] You know, for a man who's supposed to be avoiding stress, you picked a hell of a place to settle.
Bruce Banner: Avoiding stress isn't the secret.
Natasha Romanoff: Then, what is it? Yoga?
Bruce Banner: You brought me to the edge of the city, smart. I uh... assume the whole place is surrounded?
Natasha Romanoff: Just you and me.
Bruce Banner: And your actress buddy, is she a spy too? Do they start that young?
Natasha Romanoff: I did.
Bruce Banner: Who are you?
Natasha Romanoff: Natasha Romanoff.
Bruce Banner: Are you here to kill me, Miss Romanoff? Because that's not gonna work out for everyone.
Natasha Romanoff: No. No. Of course not. I'm here on behalf of SHIELD.
Bruce Banner: SHIELD. How did they find me?
Natasha Romanoff: We never lost you, doctor. We've kept our distance, even helped keep some other interested parties off your scent.
Bruce Banner: Why?
Natasha Romanoff: Nick Fury seems to trust you. But now I need you to come in.
Bruce Banner: What if I said no?
Natasha Romanoff: I'll persuade you.
Bruce Banner: And what if the... other guy says no?
Natasha Romanoff: You've been more than a year without an incident. I don't think you wanna break that streak.
Bruce Banner: I don't get always what I want.

Natasha Romanoff: Doctor, we're facing a potential global catastrophe.
Bruce Banner: Well, THOSE I actively try to avoid.
Natasha Romanoff: This is the Tesseract.
[she shows him a photo of the Tesseract on her cell phone]
Natasha Romanoff: It has the potential energy to wipe out the planet.
Bruce Banner: What does Fury want me to do? Swallow it?
Natasha Romanoff: Well, he wants you to find it. It's been taken. It omits a gamma signature that's too weak for us to trace. There's no one that knows gamma radiation like you do. If there was, that's where I'd be.
Bruce Banner: So Fury isn't after the monster?
Natasha Romanoff: Not that he's told me.
Bruce Banner: And he tells you everything?
Natasha Romanoff: Talk to Fury, he needs you on this.
Bruce Banner: He needs me in a cage?
Natasha Romanoff: No one's gonna put you in a...
Bruce Banner: STOP LYING TO ME!
[cringing back, Natasha quickly grabs her gun and points it at Banner]
Bruce Banner: I'm sorry, that was mean. I just wanted to see what you'd do. Why don't we do this the easy way, where you don't use that, and the other guy doesn't make a mess? Okay?
[Natasha, still wary, doesn't lower her gun]
Bruce Banner: Natasha?
Natasha Romanoff: [she lowers her gun and speaks into her earpiece to the SHIELD agents who are surrounding the building outside] Stand down. We're good here.
Bruce Banner: [Banner looks at Natasha in amusement] Just you and me?

Tony Stark: You should come by Stark Tower sometime. Top 10 floors all R&D, you'd love it... it's candyland.
Bruce Banner: Thanks, but the last time I was in New York I kind of broke... Harlem.

Natasha Romanoff: [all arguing in the lab] Are you really that dense? S.H.I.E.L.D. monitors potential threats.
Bruce Banner: Captain America is on threat watch?
Natasha Romanoff: We ALL are!
Tony Stark: [to Rogers] You're on that list? Are you above or below angry bees?
Steve Rogers: I swear, Stark, one more wisecrack out of you...
Tony Stark: Verbal threat! Threatening! I'm being threatened!

Natasha Romanoff: Gentlemen, you might want to step inside in a minute. It's going to get a little hard to breathe.
[as the Helicarrier starts to power up, Steve Rogers and Bruce Banner walk to the edge]
Steve Rogers: Is this a submarine?
Bruce Banner: Really? They want me submerged in a pressurized metal container?
[Rogers and Banner stand at the edge and they look over as the Helicarrier starts to slowly rise out of the ocean to fly]
Bruce Banner: [smiles] Oh, no, this is MUCH worse!
[Rogers hands $10 to Fury]

Tony Stark: You know, I've got a cluster of shrapnel, trying every second to crawl its way into my heart.
[Stark points at the mini-arc reactor in his chest]
Tony Stark: This stops it. This little circle of light. It's part of me now, not just armor. It's a... terrible privilege.
Bruce Banner: But you can control it.
Tony Stark: Because I learned how.
Bruce Banner: It's different.
[Banner tries to read the computer screen, but Stark slides the data aside with his finger so the two can see face-to-face]
Tony Stark: Hey, I've read all about your accident. That much gamma exposure should have killed you.
Bruce Banner: So you're saying that the Hulk... the other guy... saved my life? That's nice. It's a nice sentiment. Save it for what?
Tony Stark: I guess we'll find out.
[Banner and Stark get back to work at their respective computers]
Bruce Banner: You might not like that.
Tony Stark: You just might.

Thor: You speak of control, yet you court chaos.
Bruce Banner: It's his M.O., isn't it? I mean, what are we, a team? No, no, no. We're a chemical mixture that makes chaos. We're... we're a time-bomb.
Nick Fury: You need to step away.
Tony Stark: Why shouldn't the guy let off a little steam?
Steve Rogers: You know damn well why! Back off!
Tony Stark: Oh, I'm starting to want you to make me.

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 and Dr. Bruce Banner shake hands]
Nick Fury: Doctor, thank you for coming.
Bruce Banner: Thanks for asking nicely. So, uh... how long am I staying?
Nick Fury: Once we get our hands on the Tesseract, you're in the clear.
Bruce Banner: Where are you with that?
[Nick Fury turns to Agent Coulson to explain, while Natasha Romanoff eyes an image of Clint Barton on a computer screen]
Agent Phil Coulson: We're sweeping every wirelessly accessible camera on the planet. Cell phones, laptops. If it's connected to a satellite, it's eyes and ears for us.
Natasha Romanoff: That's still not gonna find them in time.
Bruce Banner: You have to narrow the field. How many spectrometers do you have access to?
Nick Fury: How many are there?
Bruce Banner: Call every lab you know, tell them to put the spectrometers on the roof and calibrate them for gamma rays. I'll rough out a tracking algorithm based on cluster recognition. At least we could rule out a few places. Do you have somewhere for me to work?
Nick Fury: Agent Romanoff, would you show Dr. Banner to his laboratory, please.
[Natasha nods and walks off, leading Banner down the hall]
Natasha Romanoff: You're gonna love it, Doc. We got all the toys.

Steve Rogers: Does Loki need any particular kind of power source?
Bruce Banner: He'd have to heat the cube to a hundred and twenty million Kelvin just to break through the Coulomb barrier.
Tony Stark: Unless Selvig has figured out how to stabilize the quantum tunnelling effect.
Bruce Banner: Well, if he could do that, he could achieve heavy ion fusion at any reactor on the planet.
Tony Stark: Finally, someone who speaks English.
Steve Rogers: Is that what just happened?
[Stark and Banner shake hands]
Tony Stark: It's good to meet you, Dr. Banner. Your work on anti-electron collisions is unparalleled. And I'm a huge fan of the way you lose control and turn into an enormous green rage monster.
Bruce Banner: Thanks.
Nick Fury: [to Stark] Dr. Banner is only here to track the cube. I was hoping you might join him.
Steve Rogers: Let's start with that stick of his. It may be magical, but it works an awful lot like a Hydra weapon.
Nick Fury: I don't know about that, but it is powered by the cube. And I'd like to know how Loki used it to turn two of the sharpest men I know into his personal flying monkeys.
Thor: Monkeys? I do not understand.
Steve Rogers: I do!
[Stark rolls his eyes, while Captain America looks proud of himself]
Steve Rogers: I understood that reference.

[Banner arrives in New York on a motorcycle just as the Chitauri have begun their attack]
Bruce Banner: So... this all seems horrible.
Black Widow: I've seen worse.
Bruce Banner: Sorry.
Black Widow: No, we could... use... a little worse.

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.

Natasha Romanoff: You want to think about removing yourself from this environment, Doctor?
Bruce Banner: [chuckles] I was in Calcutta, I was pretty well removed.
Natasha Romanoff: Loki is manipulating you.
Bruce Banner: And you been doing what, exactly?
Natasha Romanoff: You didn't come here because I batted my eyelashes at you.
Bruce Banner: Yes, and I'm not leaving because suddenly you get a little twitchy.

Bruce Banner: I'd like to know why SHIELD is using the Tesseract to build weapons of mass destruction.
Nick Fury: Because of him!
[points at Thor]
Thor: Me?
Nick Fury: Last year, Earth had a visit from another planet that had a grudge match that leveled a small town. We learned that only are we not alone, but we are hopelessly, hilariously outgunned.
Thor: My people want nothing but peace with your planet!
Nick Fury: But you're not the only ones out there, are you? And you're not the only threat. The world is filling up with people that can't be matched, that can't be controlled!
Steve Rogers: Like you control the cube?


"The Incredible Hulk: The Incredible Hulk (#1.1)" (1977)
Jack McGee: Forgive me, Doctor, but I am calling you a liar!
Dr. David Banner: Mr. McGee!
Dr. David Banner: [takes a deep breath, smiles]
Dr. David Banner: Mr. McGee, don't make me angry.
Dr. David Banner: [chuckles]
Dr. David Banner: You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

Dr. David Banner: [turns to Elaina in agitation]
Dr. David Banner: When the metamorphosis happens, I don't have any control over it; I don't even know what it DOES! I could have killed you.
Dr. David Banner: [gives a start of horror]
Dr. David Banner: Maybe that's why I was wounded. Maybe I tried to kill somebody last night - maybe I DID kill somebody.
Dr. Elaina Marks: Listen to me! David Banner is NOT a killer.
Dr. David Banner: We're not talking about David Banner.
Dr. Elaina Marks: Yes, we ARE!

Dr. David Banner: You know, my mother always used to tell me, "Getting angry doesn't help."
Dr. Elaina Marks: I always liked your mother.
Dr. David Banner: She always liked YOU.

Dr. David Banner: Do you think we will ever find where that strength comes from?
Dr. Elaina Marks: I don't know. But we'll certainly share a lot of donuts together, and I'll probably get fat.

Dr. David Banner: Mr McGee, your newspaper is only interested in reporting murder, rape, horoscopes, UFO's and Farrah Fawcett. I don't happen to fit into any of those categories - and I wish NOT to be interviewed.
Dr. David Banner: [walks off]
Jack McGee: All right, Dr. Banner. But I don't give up easily.

Dr. Elaina Marks: One tiny portion of a living cell. Well, I tell ya, as many times as I've seen it, it still facinates me that it would take over a half a million of those to cover the head of a pin.
Dr. David Banner: Well enjoy the view, it's all we've got.

Dr. Elaina Marks: David?
Dr. David Banner: [wincing in pain] Yeah?
Dr. Elaina Marks: When did you say you were shot?
Dr. David Banner: I don't know, sometime early this morning.
Dr. Elaina Marks: Well I'll tell you, this wound looks like it's been healing for a few days.
Dr. David Banner: I know.

Dr. David Banner: I gotta get something to drink, I'm dehydrating.

Dr. Elaina Marks: David, try to remember...
Dr. David Banner: I, ah, I remember... feeling incredibly strong... it was me... and it wasn't me.

Dr. David Banner: [recreating the conditions of his first Hulk-out] Hey wait a minute, last night was an electrical storm!
Dr. Elaina Marks: Oh brother, you really do have a Ben Franklin complex, don't you?

Dr. David Banner: All right, but I wanna make sure that that never happens again. I wanna be Dr. Banner, not Dr. Jekyll.

Dr. David Banner: I love you Elaina. I think you loved me too. Although you never said it.

Dr. David Banner: - it's the same story, over and over again...
[slams notebook in rage]
Dr. David Banner: - but WHAT is the common DENOMINATOR?
Dr. Elaina Marks: David, believe me, if I knew the answer, I'd tell you.

Dr. Elaina Marks: We'll keep on searching until we find out how to make you normal again.
Dr. David Banner: I suggest that we get our research materials together, and move to safer quarters.
Dr. Elaina Marks: Where?
Dr. David Banner: I don't know... we'll think of a place.
Dr. Elaina Marks: ...keep on searching...
Dr. David Banner: We'll think of a place.


"The Incredible Hulk: Death in the Family (#1.2)" (1977)
Denny Kayle: Ok, punk, I don't want to get angry!
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Believe me, neither do I.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: [Looking at a gravestone] That's my name.
Juliet Griffith: Griffith?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: David.
Juliet Griffith: That's my favorite name. Means 'beloved'.

Juliet Griffith: Hello, David.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: How are you feeling?
Juliet Griffith: Much better, thank you. You look a little better yourself.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well, I was pretty grubby before.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Mrs. Griffith, we are waisting time. While I stand here trying to dazzle you with biochemical trivia, your stepdaughter might be in serious trouble.

Michael: So that's how you're clothes got ripped off. You just stretched out of them. Boy, I sure wish I was you. There's some people I'd like to be mad at.
[Takes a swig from his bottle]
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Michael, you don't wish you were me. It's like having a demon inside of you.
[Michael takes a long look at his bottle]

Michael: Now you two better git!
Dr. David Bruce Banner: No we're not leaving without you. Now Julie, I think you can walk. I think you can if you want to, if you need to.
Juliet Griffith: I can't!
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well I can't carry both of you! Now you got to try.
Juliet Griffith: Look, why can't you just get mad or something and turn yourself back into that thing, then you can...
Dr. David Bruce Banner: It does'nt work that way! I can't control it!
Juliet Griffith: Well I can't control my legs either!

Juliet Griffith: You sure you won't stay?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: And have that creature turn up one night when I have a dream and become angry? No, I have to keep moving, till I can be certain this is never going to happen again.
Juliet Griffith: But David...
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Julie, the creature is wanted for murder. One that I can not prove that he or I didn't commit and you would be harboring a criminal.
Juliet Griffith: I don't care.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I do.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: I'm trying to tell you that Judy's in danger!
Denny Kayle: From weirdos like you!

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Julie, I think the whole thing is pschycological.
Juliet Griffith: Now why would I not want to walk?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I don't know. You loved your dad a lot. Maybe you feel guilty because he died and you didn't.
Juliet Griffith: Oh come on, that has nothing to do with it. I mean why would it be my legs anyway?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Guilt! People have lost things they love because of guilt! Painters have lost their eyesight. It does happen.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: [Denny hands David an envelope] What is this?
Denny Kayle: That is your severance pay you've been severed.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: [David is sinking in quick sand] Julie the branch get it down get it down for me.
Juliet Griffith: I can't walk David.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I'm not asking you to walk I'm asking you to stand.
Juliet Griffith: Oh God David I cant do it.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: [Starts hulking out] Julie JULIE!
Juliet Griffith: David don't let that happen no not that you'll make it worse.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Julie for God's sake!
Juliet Griffith: David!


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

[last lines]
Bruce Banner: [in Spanish] You're making me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

Bruce Banner: I should have killed you.
Dr. David Banner: Maybe I should have killed you.
Bruce Banner: I wish you had.

Bruce Banner: [that ominous green glow in his eyes] Talbot?
Talbot: Yeah?
Bruce Banner: You're making me angry.
Talbot: Oh, am I?
[Banner turns into the Hulk]

Talbot: You and I have never had the chance to get to know each other properly.
Bruce Banner: Well, that's because I don't want to get to know you. Properly or improperly.

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?

Bruce Banner: Listen to your father and take your medicines, okay?

Bruce Banner: I never felt better!

Dr. David Banner: [absorbing Hulk's energy] Sleep, Bruce, and dream forever. Struggle no more... and give me all of your power.
Bruce Banner: You think you can live with it? Take it! TAKE IT ALL!

Ross: [about Dr. David Banner] He gets released, and a month later your lab is destroyed. What a coincidence. So you're just not going to tell me where he is, are you?
Bruce Banner: How many times do I have to tell you? I'd like to help you, but I just don't know.
Ross: You know who I am, right, Banner?
Ross: You're Betty's father. You're a high-ranking general.
Ross: Let's cut the crap. I'm the guy who had your father tossed away, and a lot more like him, and I'll do the same with you if I feel so disposed. You understand?
Bruce Banner: If you had him tossed away, then why are you asking me? I don't remember! I was always told my father was dead.
Ross: Don't play with me! You were four years old when you saw it.
Bruce Banner: When I saw what?
Ross: You were right there! How could anyone forget a thing like that?
Bruce Banner: [whispers] What?
Ross: Ohh, some more repressed memories.
Bruce Banner: Just tell me.
Ross: I'm sorry, son. You're an even more screwed up mess than I thought you'd be. Until we get to the bottom of this, your lab has been declared a top secret military site and you're not going to get a security clearance to get back into it. Or any other lab that's doing anything more interesting than trying to figure out the next generation of herbal hair gel.
[He leans forward threateningly]
Ross: And one more thing: If you ever come within a thousand yards of my daughter again, I'll put you away for the rest of your natural life.


The Incredible Hulk (2008)
Bruce Banner: [in a poor Portuguese] Don't make me hungry. You wouldn't like me when I'm hungry.
Tough Guy Leader: [in Portuguese] What the hell he is talking about?

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.

Bruce Banner: Stan, I give you my word. Whatever you've heard about me, it's not true.
Stanley: Oh, I know it. I always knew it. I mean, you know how I felt about you two.
[Bruce nods]
Stanley: Have you talked to her?
Bruce Banner: No. She doesn't know that I'm here.
[pause]
Bruce Banner: She's with somebody?
Stanley: Yeah, He's a head-shrink. They say he's one of the best. But a really nice guy.
Bruce Banner: Oh... Good. That's good.
Stanley: Bruce. What can I do to help you?
Bruce Banner: I could use a bed for a few nights.
Stanley: Ah. You can have the spare room upstairs.
Bruce Banner: That'd be so great.
[pause]
Bruce Banner: There's, uh, there's one other thing...

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.

Bruce Banner: [as he jumps from the helicopter to change into The Hulk and doesn't, he continues to fall] Oh, shit!

Bruce Banner: [in Portuguese] Stop. Please. Me... angry... very bad.
Tough Guy Leader: *You* bad angry, "G"? I very bad angry.
Bruce Banner: Oh, no. You don't understand! Something very bad is about to happen here!

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.

Bruce Banner: [speaking Brazilian Portuguese while confronting bullies at work] Don't make me... hungry. You wouldn't like me when I'm... hungry.
[in English, to himself]
Bruce Banner: Uh... that's not right.


Hulk Vs. (2009) (V)
Bruce Banner: No!
Deadpool: Yes. As in, "Yes, you're going to die." BANG! Just kidding.

Thor: Bruce Banner, I know thee to be a man of honor. I know thee to be a hero. The lives at stake are not your concern, not even human, but I ask you anyway. Be that hero now.
Bruce Banner: No, I can't.

Bruce Banner: You don't know what you've done! With no one to rein the Hulk in, he'll tear down your entire world!
Loki: I find your prattling useless, mortal... just as you are now useless to ME!
[blasts Banner]

[Wolverine comes across a man at a lake crying]
Wolverine: Hey, bub, you haven't seen a big monster runnin' around here, have ya?
Bruce Banner: [backing away, agitated] No! Stay back! Get away from me!
Wolverine: Easy, crybaby, I'm not gonna... you smell toxic!
[Wolverine throws Banner into a rock]
Wolverine: Who are you?
Bruce Banner: Please, leave me alone. For your own sake, please.
[Wolverine pops two his blades on one arm, forming a vise on Banner's head]
Wolverine: Here's the deal, misty: a third claw is gonna come out unless you start talkin'!

[the Enchantress separates Bruce Banner from the Hulk]
Bruce Banner: [looking at the Hulk] No! It's impossible!

Bruce Banner: I had a nightmare... I was alone.
Betty Ross: You're not alone. You'll never be alone.
[They kiss]
Bruce Junior: [running in] Daddy, come play with me!
[Bruce starts to cry]

Hela: Bruce Banner, I will not force you to forsake the afterlife. But you must be whole!
Bruce Banner: No, I WON'T! You don't understand...!

[the Hulk grabs Thor and Loki in a deadlock]
Bruce Banner: Hulk! Let them go! I'm the one you want!
[the Hulk charges at Banner, who fuses with him]
Thor: You called him weak, Loki, but there is more strength and courage in that man than you will ever know!

Loki: Hear me, human. You have been brought to Asgard, for in all the universe, only *you* have ever brought near defeat to the Mighty Thor.
Bruce Banner: What? I couldn't.
Loki: Not thee, Bruce Banner, for you are a sad, sniveling creature. I speak of your other half. I speak... of the Hulk.
[Bruce gasps]
Loki: There is one day left of the Odinsleep. As always, the Asgardians will emerge victorious against the siege of darkness. My brother will seek peace and then... then I shall destroy him!


"The Incredible Hulk: Mystery Man (#2.15)" (1979)
Rose: I don't make a habbit of this, picking up riders. But, you look alright. Clean cut, even handsome.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Oh, thank you.
Rose: Can't live with em and can't live without em.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Beg your pardon?
Rose: Men. They're all barn snakes!

Doctor: Now, what's happened to you is not uncommon. Concussions, especially severe ones, can sometimes cause temporary amnesia.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Did ah, did I have any identification?
Doctor: No, I'm afraid not, the car burned. There is a slightly scorched duffelbag in the property department. It's probably yours.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Was there no name on it, initials, something?
Doctor: No, you're officially listed as 'John Doe'.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Everything is a blank, It's as if it's all been erased.
Doctor: I'm sure once you rested up a little bit more, the pieces will start fitting together.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: It's very frightening, Doctor, I feel as if have just been born, right here in this room when I woke up.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: I wanna thank you very much for all you've done.
Jack McGee: Aw, it's alright. Chalk it up to Jack McGee's good deed for the decade.

Jack McGee: Listen, John...
Dr. David Bruce Banner: John?
Jack McGee: Yeah well, sorry that's, eh... John Doe is the only name they had on your hospital chart.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: It's alright, It's okay, I like it. it gives me a feeling of being... solid.

Jack McGee: I was in the air force, Korea. But I never liked flying, you know what I mean?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Yeah, I know.

Jack McGee: I'm, eh, kind of a hunter, and the Hulk is what I hunt. Now it's just possible that you're hunting him to, only for maybe a different reason.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Like what?
Jack McGee: Could be anything, the Hulk is rough, he's a killer, he could have hurt somebody you know, somebody you love.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Jack, I told you to stay off that leg.
Jack McGee: What is it? Forest fire?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Yeah. We can't stop now, We're gonna have to head back the other way, we can rest later.
Jack McGee: That's north, that's away from Eden. That's away from everything that were after, your memory, my story, the Hulk!


The Death of the Incredible Hulk (1990) (TV)
Jasmine: Why should I trust you?
David Banner: Because I'm on the run, just like you.

Amy Pratt: God bless you, son.
David Banner: God bless us all.

Jasmine: David, no, don't die. We can be free now.
David Banner: Jasmine... I am free.

David Banner: I can tear down a brick wall but I can also mend flesh and bone in hours, minutes.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: David, are you telling me that this creature cannot die?
David Banner: If the damage were catastrophic maybe. Maybe. But I have seen lacerations close in seconds, bullet wounds heal, I don't even have scar.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: That's incredible. It's almost... it's almost immortal.
David Banner: Incredible yes, an incredible nightmare. And I want to destroy it and be human again.

[David is at Pratt's computer as Pratt silently walks down the stairs]
Dr. Ronald Pratt: You.
[David turns to Pratt, startled]
Dr. Ronald Pratt: Who are you?
David Banner: A friend.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: Why do you come here in this way?
[David stands up]
David Banner: I have no choice.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: What is it that you want?
[David is silent]
Dr. Ronald Pratt: David. Tell me something. Something to keep me from calling security.
[Pratt's hand reaches out slowly to the security button]
David Banner: Banner!
[Pratt stops and looks at David with shocked realization]
David Banner: My name is...
Dr. Ronald Pratt: Banner. Of course! Doctor David Banner! Stanford, Princeton! Amy was right, it's a ghost.
David Banner: Much worse than that.

[David stands at Pratt's blackboard where his formula notes are written and he points at the start of the notes as he looks at Pratt, who is seated at his desk]
David Banner: I was at this far twelve years ago. I thought I knew so much.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: You were one of the pioneers.
David Banner: I was a patient. I read all of your papers on everything. Developmental growth factors, molecular genetics, cryogenics. Even then you were chasing the healing powers. But I was after the extra strength, the superhuman unexplained strength that all humans are capable of during moments of danger.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: I read all of your papers too. You were the first to use radiation.
David Banner: But I moved too fast. I experimented on myself. And...
Dr. Ronald Pratt: And now you have that strength.
David Banner: Now I have a mutation, near the rage center of my brain. And during moments of anger or fear, it secrets a hormone and I become a mutant thing, a beast until that rage ends. Now the world thinks that I'm dead, but they also think that this creature inside of me is a murderer and they may some day be right! It's not human! Maybe it's what we were before we became human. Maybe it's the worst of us. I never see it. My conscious mind stops. I can't control it.
[David points at the end of the formula written on the blackboard]
David Banner: But do you know what comes next?
[David points to himself and he walks closer to Pratt]
David Banner: Me! *I* am *your* experiment. I am the strength and the healing. I can tear down a brick wall but I can also mend bones and flesh in hours, minutes.

Dr. Ronald Pratt: I must see it, David. Study it.
David Banner: Impossible. He would destroy this place.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: What if I could contain it? Turn its strength back against it, like a force field. I could do that, I could do that here.
David Banner: I can't take that responsibility.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: I will!
David Banner: *No!* I can't let him out! You don't understand. For years, I have tried to control him. To maintain...
Dr. Ronald Pratt: David, please! There is a chance that I can *rid you* of this thing! A chance. Now isn't that what you've been chasing, all these years? But with your help, I could change the way we heal ourselves. I can save lives, David. But I must study this thing. I must see it!


"The Incredible Hulk: Married (#2.1)" (1978)
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I was involved with advanced genetic research on related deceases at the Culver-institute in California.
Dr. Carolyn Fields: At Culver? Did you work with David Banner?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Quite closely.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: I once heard a story about a man being chased by a tiger. He came to a cliff. He fell, but he grabbed a branch, and he just hung there, just out of reach of the tiger. And he looked down. You know what he saw? Another Tiger. Waiting for him to drop. And then he felt that the branch he was clinging to was coming out of the cliff by the roots. Now while all this was happening, he noticed something: he noticed, growing in a cleft bedside him, a single wild strawberry. And with his free hand he reached out and picked it. And he ate it. And he tought to himself: what a wonderfull strawberry.

Dr. Caroline Fields: At Culver? Did you work with David Banner?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Quite closely.
Dr. Caroline Fields: Why did he suddenly abandon his research on diseases such as mine?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: His wife died... and after that his work... took on other piorities.
Dr. Caroline Fields: What a shame. His work in the area of my disease was brilliant, it was pioneering.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Thank you.
Dr. Caroline Fields: David Banner was killed in a lab fire.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: About fifteen to twenty years for transporting heroin.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: You really believe you can beat Cole?
Henry 'Rocky' Welsh: Hey, if I ain't ready tonight, I ain't never gonna be ready.

Mr. Sererino: You were a medic, huh?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Yeah, that's right.
Mr. Sererino: Where?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: When I was 104 landing first devision just outside of Da Nang.
Mr. Sererino: Ever do any physical therapy?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Oh sure.
Mr. Sererino: I don't just mean rubbin' and poundin' you know, I've seen boxers crippled for life by yo-yo's who didn't know what they were doing.

Tom: Hey, about that muscle, what was it?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: What, you mean this one?
Tom: Yeah.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Trapezius.
Tom: Oh, man, that trapeze is feeling a lot better now!

Mary: I just wish Henry would give up the boxing and get a steady job. He's so good at fixing cars.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I know, I saw it.
Mary: It's amazing, really, It's seems like all he has to do is put his hands on them and they start working.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: He could probably be the first guy to open up a garage and specialize in faith healing.

Mary: Listen, I love him a lot, but have you ever seen him fight?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: No.
Mary: He may call himself Rocky, but he's only Henry.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Hey, are you ah, are you taking those bandages for a walk?


"The Incredible Hulk: Mystery Man: Part II (#2.16)" (1979)
Jack McGee: Wolves... I feel like in some Jack London novel or something.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well, they're being driven by the fire, just like we are. Only one difference...
Jack McGee: What?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Were trying to survive in their environment.
Jack McGee: We got our brains. That puts us one up on the wolves.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Are you hungry, Jack?
Jack McGee: Yeah, I am hungry, why?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well, If they're hungry, were gonna need a lot more than our brains.

Jack McGee: Service berries?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Somewhere I remembered that Indians used to mix this with their pemmican.
Jack McGee: Those little doors in your brain just keep opening, don't they?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Yes, opening... and then closing again.

Jack McGee: I always was afraid of death. I'd see pictures of death... pictures in books. Always about nine feet tall, a hooded skull and a big scythe. It scared me . So, I started to think about death as just a creaky old man on a squeaky old bike just moving along. That made it easier to think about it. Especially now.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: You're not dying, Jack.
Jack McGee: Oh no, certainly not, we cant give up hope, can we?

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Why do you want the Hulk so badly?
Jack McGee: Because the Hulk means escape, get it? It's the biggest story of the 20th century. I could win a Pulitzer for journalism. More importantly, I could get off a the Register. I could stop banging out pap for the supermarket masses. I could get my column back, write real stories. Important stories. I could be somebody!

Dr. David Bruce Banner: But the Hulk saved your life, you told me so yourself. Don't you think you should help it?
Jack McGee: Yes, but you gotta choose, that's all life is, you know, my friend, just choosing. It's you or the other guy.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: I'm Dr. David Banner, and I'm the creature.


The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction (2005) (VG)
Bruce Banner: [reading one of blonskeys personal log files] He's going insane
Samson: It's a natural consiquence of gamma radiation exposure. His mind is mutating along with his body.

Bruce Banner: There's a thin line between good and bad. I walk that line every single day. When I stray from it... people die. My name is Bruce Banner and this is me. I'm not a person anymore. I'm the Hulk. I did this to myself, all in the name of science. This is me. All that I've become. I'm a big, green time bomb. And I'm ticking...

Samson: We need a bunch of Uranium 235 from the nuclear power plant. Chances are, Blonsky knows we're coming. Thankfully, you know your way around fissionable material. Locate two fuel rods from inside the reactor and bring them safely here.
Bruce Banner: You want fries with that?
Samson: Very funny.

Samson: He must have been making these entries while he was falling apart. Take a look at this photo he attached.
Bruce Banner: Is he taking pictures of himself?
Samson: Of his deterioration. He's go to give himself a REASON to hate you.

Bruce Banner: What's happening to me?
[Bruce turns around and sees the Devil Hulk in the mirror instead of his reflection]
Devil Hulk: My darling boy, my Bruce... don't be afraid. Scientists aren't supposed to fear... evolution.

Emil Blonsky: Go ahead, Banner. Hit me. Hate me. You know you want to. Those restraints you're wearing translate your strength into nerve impulse energy. The more powerful the prisoner, the more energy he uses to restrain himself. If you become the Hulk, you'll kill yourself.
Bruce Banner: You can't break a man who's already broken, Blonsky. What if you get inside and you don't like what you find?
Emil Blonsky: I know what triggers it, you freak. I know how tough you are to the nearest decimal point. I don't need to know how to become like you...
[Blonsky's voice changes for a moment]
Emil Blonsky: I need to know how to CONTROL IT!
Bruce Banner: That voice... What are you?
Emil Blonsky: I'm Ahab and you're the big, white whale. Now open wide... and say "aah".
[Bruce is electrocuted and he screams in pain]

Dr. David Bruce Banner: So, where're you going?
Carrie Taylor: 585 Rosemont. It's supposed to be somewhere near Greenmill Hospital.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Oh good, that's where I'm going.
Carrie Taylor: The hospital?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Yeah.
Carrie Taylor: Hope it's nothing serious.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well, it's nothing to get worked up about.

Dr. Stan Rhodes: I just want you to realize the risk that you're taking. Injecting a mutant cell into your brain can have harmful and even lethal side effects.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I'm willing to take my chances.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well, have you got a name for her?
Carrie Taylor: Not yet... Oh, if she were a boy, it'd be easy: David. But a girl?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: What about Davidedette? Or Davidia? Or Davona?
Carrie Taylor: How about... not.

[David is directed to Dr. Rhodes]
Chief Nurse: Is your wife a patient of his?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: No, I am.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well, there must be some kind of mistake.
Bert: No mistake, Billy. Messed with the wrong girl. Pack a bag.

Les Creaseman: Hi there, where ya headed?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Doesn't matter.
Les Creaseman: Heh heh heh, well, you're in luck, sport, 'cause that's just where I'm going.

George: Sure you want this job, David? You look kinda beat to me.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well, I just don't want to make you guys look bad.
George: Give yourself a few more years, it won't hurt so much.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: That's reassuring.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Would you mind pulling over? I have to get out.
Les Creaseman: Oh, you mean like when you gotta go, you gotta go?

George: There's nothing you can do about it.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: There has to be. He's kidnapped her and he could hurt her.
George: Look, Jordan owns this town and damn near everyone in it, police included.


"The Incredible Hulk: Vendetta Road (#2.22)" (1979)
Cassie Floyd: Oh, that's just my husband Ray. He saved your life.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Yeah, he also blew up a gas station.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Why would anybody blow up a gas station?
Ray Floyd: I got my reasons. Ain't nobody gettin' killed, I know what I'm doing, and I don't make mistakes.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Yeah?

[Ray tells David his story about Westco's involvement in his father's death]
Dr. David Bruce Banner: You're not going to prove anything by blowing up gas stations. All you're going to do is hurt yourself and Cassie.
Ray Floyd: David, there's nothing else I can do.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Nobody, and I mean nobody, is going to believe you if you keep breaking the law. Now if what you say about Westco is true, then what you're doing is no better.

Cassie Floyd: I think I'm pregnant.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Cassie, it's one thing to threaten your own life. But it's quite something else to threaten the life of your baby.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Hey, wait a minute, you can't do that.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Don't our stumachs have any in this?
Carl Rivers: Come to think about it, mine has been talking real loud about a 10 pound steak.

Foreman: Sorry, mister. We got all the help we need. I guess I forgot to take the sign down.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Aha. I see. Well, are there any other places in town that are hiring?

Gail Collins: Oh! I can barely walk, I certainly can't attempt to hike through the hills. Ooh.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Don't you think you're overreacting for a relatively minor injury?
Gail Collins: My diagnosis is that I can't make it back to the main road. At least not yet. My name is Gail Brenshaw.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: David... Baily.
Gail Collins: And I'm a doctor. So if you want a second opinion, you'll have to find a second doctor...

Gail Collins: You know I haven't been camping since I was a little girl. My dad used to take me. We lived in Michigan. Then they discovered what an extraordinary brain was hidden under my pigtails.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well, a good brain is a gift.
Gail Collins: Maybe. It's all a game of genetic chance. Toss of the dice and you're a genius or the village clown. No mystique, no cosmic meaning. just an accident of nature.

Gail Collins: David, I've seen celular mutations and birth defects and everything that nature can do to destroy the body, but this! I know that it sounds unbelievable, but it happened!
Dr. David Bruce Banner: It's alright, it's alright.
Gail Collins: You believe me?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Yes, I do believe you Gail.
Gail Collins: Did you know it was here? Is that why you wanted me to leave?

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Yes.
Gail Collins: Who are those words of wisdome meant for? You or me?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Both of us.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Muscles. Emotions are like muscles. First you have to make them strong, because if you don't use them, delatrophy. But then when you use them, the're gonna be sore. But the more you use them, the easier it gets.

[Annette has overheard Carl]
Annette: A thousand bucks, Carl? What, you're gonna get another job?

Annette: You're already doing double shift here. Tell him, David.
Carl Molino: You don't have to yell, Annette. I'm looking right at you.
Annette: Well, it's just not worth killing yourself over.
Carl Molino: Yes it is. It is.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Don't let her bother you. She was born to give advice.

Mandy: I just wanted to help him. Is that so terrible.

Carol Abrams: David, you're terrific. You really know how to handle people without getting angry.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Oh, are you saying you kissed me because I didn't bodily throw you out of the arcade?
Carol Abrams: No. I kissed you because you helped me study for my diagnostic exam. I aced it!
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Oh, not bad for a first year intern, Doctor. Actually, all I did was check the answers in your textbook.
Carol Abrams: No, David, that's not quite true. Most of the answers you corrected you didn't even have to look in the book. You knew.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I told you, I had several years in the medical corps.

Carol Abrams: You're an intelligent, articulate man. And you should not be working in this arcade.

Dell Frye: This, the machine, I need it first.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I don't understand.
Dell Frye: [holds up his arm] This, the arthritis. It cures things, remember? My bullet wound, healed in a day.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: No, we can't risk it.

Holly Cooper: Arizona is a big state.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Not big enough.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well I don't remember much about anything that happened after I was hit.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Were they injured?
Nancy: Oh just their pride I'd say. They sure high-tailed it outta there in a hurry.

Clint: Listen, buddy, you want me to rearrange your face or something?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I have no doubts that you could do that. But it seems to me there's an awful lot of people around here, and someone's bound to call the police. Then you're gonna have more trouble on your hands than just me. Now is it worth it?
Clint: Not for her it ain't.

Nancy: A million and a half dollars?
Callahan: Yeah, right in the trunk.
Nancy: [to David] I guess that kind of does explain things.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Yeah.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: When does Callahan arrive?
Mechanic: Whenever he gets here.

Bobby: Ok. Maybe you should get a new shirt that fits.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Yeah, well I, did the best I could under the circumstances.

Mrs. Dennison: Having foster kids isn't much different than having your own. I'm exhausted.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I can understand that.

Mike: It's just like he says, money is better than anybody's help.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well, Taylor George is going nowhere but down. He's going to take you with him. Don't you remember what Oscar said? He was the one who went to prison while his 'main man' got off scot-free. Now believe me, Taylor George, one of these days, is going to start collecting his IOUs.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: You do.
Raymond: Special duty, chaperoning you and Miss Karen Mitchell.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Aha.

Jim: What's to stop me from picking up these jewels and then eh, blowing you away?

Dr. David Bruce Banner: I'm a human being, and I've fallen down.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Sir? Sir, I need your help.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Listen, there's a boy back there being beaten.
Middle-aged Man: I know.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well, then call the police.

Thomas Logan: Well, see a doctor.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: They can't help me.
Thomas Logan: Look, in case you haven't noticed, you're not a horse. It could be very dangerous.

Kim Kelly: The swelling's almost gone. You're one fast healer!
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well, I erm, I'm a miracle of modern medicine.

Thomas Logan: You possess a powerful force.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: No, it possesses me! And I can't control it. It even happens in my sleep!

David Banner: Honest.
Thomas Logan: Say "Honest, Indian," and I'll deck you.


"The Incredible Hulk: Jake (#3.6)" (1979)
Jake White: He's my kid brother. He goes where I go and that is what keeps him out of trouble. And he's a decent kid and I'm glad of that, cause if he wasn't my brother, I'd want him for my friend.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Jake, have you ever said that to Leon?
Jake White: Between two grown men, some things don't need saying.

Jake White: For a band aid and aspirin man you sure know a lot of them 50 dollar words.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I'll tell you what I do know: Your putting a 100.000 dollar bounty on your own life.

Jake White: Hey partner, haven't you ever hung in there, even when every body else tells you it's a lost cause?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Yeah.
Jake White: Yeah, for folks like us, losing a fight ain't near as bad as hiding from it.

Jake White: I saw a doctor just last week.

Maj. Ned Talbot: You'd better be. This is B.I.G. Big!

Dr. David Bruce Banner: You've no right to call yourself a hunter, Sutton. A real hunter plays a fair game. You're a coward. You're afraid of a fair game. you only care about winning. That's all you want out of life, isn't it, Sutton, to win?

Dr. David Bruce Banner: Oh now don't tell me, it cures the plague?

Babalo: The power of the Loa casts evil on you, non believer!
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Is that your power, violence? Is that the curse of the spirits? Because if it is, we have nothing to fear. Because he bought his power as you can buy his power, in a magic store!

Louie: What kind of magic are you gonna use against the Babalao? He's so powerful.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Well, there's all kinds of powers, Louie. I'm going to try the power of reason. Let's hope it works, huh?

"The Incredible Hulk: Killer Instinct (#2.8)" (1978)
Dr. Byron Stewart: You're not a reporter are you?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: No! No, but I did read all your earlier books. I was very impressed: The seeds of aggression lie deep in the subconscious mind. Aggressive behavior is nothing more than an acting out of those subconscious thoughts.
Dr. Byron Stewart: That's very good. But of course others have said much the same thing: Waldheim, Marshall, Banner.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Ah yes, but Banner was talking about strength, not aggression. The ability to find a well of hidden strength at a moment of crisis.
Dr. Byron Stewart: Perhaps Dr. Banner failed to see that the source of that hidden well is the same for both things.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Perhaps.

Dr. Byron Stewart: We call it the Coliseum. Every Sunday they come out here and gear themselves to hit another human being as hard as they possibly can. And 75,000 people come here to cheer them on. All out aggression. except that when the whistle blows, they turn it off just like that.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Anger and control in the same moment.
Dr. Byron Stewart: Exactly. We all have it in us, David, to varying degrees. When we need to be angry, or tough or aggressive, we somehow reach into our subconscious and come up with just the right amount and then shut the rest off, hopefully. But if we don't, if we cross over that line, isn't that what abnormally aggressive behavior is all about? We go to bring up just that one bucket full of anger, and suddenly you can't seem to stop there. Do you know what I mean?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Oh yes, I know exactly what you mean, doctor.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: John, you have lost the ability to distinguish between anger you have felt in the past and the present. Between what is real and what is not.
John Tobey: Shut up! I told ya, I don't want to hear this.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I'm trying to tell this to you as a friend.
John Tobey: I got all the friends I need. 75.000 of them. Every Sunday. 75,000 friends yelling Tobey, Tobey Tobey!


"The Incredible Hulk: Another Path (#2.6)" (1978)
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Li Sung, I have a great need for this kind of control.
Li Sung: I think I understand.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: My wife Carolyn and I, we were trying to reverse my disease. We were almost succesful, but ah... she died. I've tried to control it many times.
Li Sung: Using your technology?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Yes.
Li Sung: Perhaps you should try mine.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Perhaps I should.
Li Sung: Good. Good, we'll travel together. Talk about life, death and Dizzy Gillespie.

Li Sung: David. You are as curious as ever.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I was a little more worried than I was curious. Are you alright?
