The Avengers (2012)
Loki: [as Fury tries to leave with the Tesseract ] Please don't. I still need that.
Nick Fury: This doesn't have to get any messier.
Loki: Of course it does. I've come too far anything else. I am Loki, of Asgard and I am burdened with glorious purpose.
Selvig: Loki, brother of Thor.
Nick Fury: We have no quarrel with your people.
Loki: An ant has no quarrel with a boot.
Nick Fury: Are you planning to step on us?
Loki: I come with glad tidings of a world made free.
Nick Fury: Free from what?
Loki: Freedom. Freedom is life's great lie. Once you accept that, in your heart...
[walks up to Eric Selvig and touches him with the scepter]
Loki: ...you will know peace.
Nick Fury: Yeah, you say "peace," I kind of think you mean the other thing.
Clint Barton: Sir, Director Fury is stalling. This place is about to blow and drop a hundred feet of rock on us. He means to bury us.
Nick Fury: Like the pharaohs of old.
Selvig: He's right. The portal is collapsing in on itself. We've got maybe two minutes before this goes critical.
Loki: Well, then...
[Barton shoots Fury, they leave]

Steve Rogers: You think you can hold them off?
Clint Barton: Captain, it would be my genuine pleasure.

Steve Rogers: Have you got a suit?
Clint Barton: Yeah.
Steve Rogers: Then suit up.

Natasha Romanoff: [watching the aliens come toward them] This is just like Budapest all over again.
Clint Barton: You and I remember Budapest very differently.

Thor: I have unfinished business with Loki.
Clint Barton: Yeah? Get in line.

Tony Stark: What else you got?
Clint Barton: Well, Thor's taking on a squadron down on Sixth.
Tony Stark: And he didn't invite me...

Selvig: The Tesseract is showing me so much. It's more than just knowledge, it's... truth.
Loki: I know. What did it show you, Agent Barton?
Clint Barton: My next target.
Loki: Tell me what you need.
Clint Barton: I'll need a distraction.
[Barton grabs his bow]
Clint Barton: And an eyeball.

Natasha Romanoff: Clint, you're gonna be alright.
Clint Barton: [waking up from Loki's mind control] You know that? Is that what you know? I got... I gotta go in though. I gotta flush him out.
Natasha Romanoff: You gotta level out, that's gonna take time.
Clint Barton: You don't understand. Have you ever had someone take your brain and play? Take you out and stuff something else in? You know what it's like to be unmade?
Natasha Romanoff: You know that I do.
Clint Barton: Why am I back? How'd you get him out?
Natasha Romanoff: Cognitive re-calibration. I hit you really hard in the head.
Clint Barton: Thanks.

Clint Barton: [Natasha has freed him from his restraints] Tasha, how many agents did I-?
Natasha Romanoff: Don't. Don't do that to yourself, Clint. This is Loki. This is monsters and magic and nothing we were ever trained for.
Clint Barton: Loki, he got away?
Natasha Romanoff: Yeah. Don't suppose you know where?
Clint Barton: [Shakes head] Didn't need to know. Didn't ask. He's gonna make his play soon though. Today.
Natasha Romanoff: We gotta stop him.
Clint Barton: Yeah, who's "we"?
Natasha Romanoff: [Shrugs] I don't know. Whoever's left.
Clint Barton: Well, I... if I put an arrow through Loki's eye socket, I'd sleep better, I s'pose.
Natasha Romanoff: Now you sound like you.
Clint Barton: But you don't. You're a spy, not a soldier. Now you want to wade into a war. Why? What did Loki do to you?
Natasha Romanoff: He didn't, I just...
[pauses]
Clint Barton: Natasha.
Natasha Romanoff: I've been compromised. I got red in my ledger. I'd like to wipe it out.

Nick Fury: I gave you this detail so you could keep a close eye on things.
Clint Barton: Well I see better from a distance.
Nick Fury: Are you seeing anything that might set this thing off?
Clint Barton: No one's come or gone. And Selvig's clean. No contacts, IMs. If there was any tampering, sir, it wasn't at this end.
Nick Fury: At this end?
Clint Barton: Yeah. The Cube is a doorway to the other end of space, right? Doors open up both sides.
[on cue, the Tesseract activates and opens a portal, Loki steps through]
Nick Fury: Sir, please put down the spear.

[Hawkeye is shooting arrow after arrow against the enemies, and reports to Iron Man:]
Clint Barton: Stark? Got a lot of strays sniffing your tail.
Tony Stark: Just trying to keep them off the streets.
Clint Barton: [smiles] Well, they can't bank worth a damn. Find a tight corner.
Tony Stark: I will roger that.

Janet Van Dyne: Hey, you're not supposed to have guns! Hank didn't put those in you!
Ultron: This chassis was designed by Henry Pym, and modified by Tony Stark.
