Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
[Schmidt admires a wooden Norse carving]
Johann Schmidt: Yggdrasil. Tree of the world. Guardian of wisdom. And fate, also.
[discovers a wooden drawer, uncovers the Tesseract]
Johann Schmidt: And the Führer digs for trinkets in the desert.

[Zola tests the Cube on a machine]
Dr. Arnim Zola: Twenty... forty... sixty... stabilizing at seventy percent.
Johann Schmidt: I have not come all this way for safety, doctor.
[switches the machine to full power]

Johann Schmidt: Captain America! How exciting! I'm a great fan of your films!

Johann Schmidt: No matter what lies Erskine told you, you see, I was his greatest success!
[Schmidt removes his face mask and reveals his face as the Red Skull to Steve and Bucky]
James 'Bucky' Barnes: [to Steve] You don't have one of those, do you?

Tower Keeper: You cannot control the power you hold. You will burn!
Johann Schmidt: I already have.
[shoots and kills the Tower Keeper, rubs his cheekbone]

Roeder: The Führer is not accustomed to being ignored, Herr Schmidt. He funds your research because you promised him weapons.
Schneider: You serve at *his* pleasure. He gave you this facility as a reward for your... injuries.
Johann Schmidt: A reward? Call it what it is... exile! I no longer reflect his vision of Aryan perfection!
Roeder: You think this is about appearances? Your HYDRA division has failed to produce so much as a rifle in over a year, and we have learned through local intelligence you had mounted a full-scale incursion into Norway!
Schneider: The Führer feels - how does he put it? - "the Red Skull has been indulged long enough"!

Johann Schmidt: Hitler speaks of a thousand year Reich, but he cannot feed his army for month. His troops spill their blood across every field in Europe. But he is still no closer to achieving his goals.
Roeder: And I suppose you still aim to end this war through magic?
Johann Schmidt: Science. But I understand your confusion. Great power has always baffled primitive men. Hydra is assembling an arsenal to destroy my enemies in one stroke. Where ever they are, regardless of how many forces they possess. All in a matter of hours.
Schneider: *Your* enemies?
Johann Schmidt: My weapons contain enough destructive power to decimate every hostile capital on Earth. Quite simply, gentlemen, I have harnessed the power of the gods.
Roeder: Thank you, Schmidt.
Johann Schmidt: For what?
Roeder: For making it clear how obviously mad you are.
Hutter: [Studying a map of Schmidt's targets] Berlin is on this map!
Johann Schmidt: So it is.
[aims cannon at the SS officers]
Hutter: You will be punished for your insolence! You will be brought before the Fuhrer himself!
[Schmidt vaporizes him and his comrades]
Johann Schmidt: [to Zola] My apologies, Doctor, but we both knew HYDRA could grow no further in Hitler's shadow. Hail HYDRA.
