Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
[about Thor's hammer, Mjölnir]
Clint Barton: [drunk] "Whosoever, be he worthy, shall have the power", whatever man! It's a trick!
Thor: It is more than that, my friend!

Clint Barton: [to Wanda] Doesn't matter what you did, or what you were. If you go out there, you fight, and you fight to kill. Stay in here, you're good, I'll send your brother to come find you. But if you step out that door, you are an Avenger.

Laura: I see you with the Avengers, and, well...
Clint Barton: You don't think they need me?
Laura: Actually, I think they do. They're gods, and they need someone to keep them down to Earth.

Clint Barton: The city is flying and we're fighting an army of robots. And I have a bow and arrow. Nothing makes sense.

Tony Stark: [Clint is introducing the Avengers to his wife] This is an agent of some kind.
Clint Barton: Gentlemen, this is Laura.
Laura: [smiles] I know all your names
[Clint and Laura's kids come into view]
Clint Barton: Oh, Incoming. Hi sweetheart. Hey buddy!
[hugs kids]
Clint Barton: How are you guys doin'? Look at your face! Oh my goodness!
Tony Stark: These are... smaller agents.
Lila Barton: Did you bring antie-Nat?
Natasha Romanoff: Well why don't you hug her and find out!

Clint Barton: [takes out Wanda] Already tried the mind-control thing, not a fan!

Pietro Maximoff: [speeding off with Wanda] Keep up, old man!
Clint Barton: [Draws his bow and points it at Pietro's back] Nobody would know. Nobody. "The last I saw him, Ultron was sitting on him. Uh... yeah, he'll be missed. That quick little bastard. I miss him already..."
[Jogs after them]

Steve Rogers: [Ultron blasts Cap] Well, he's definitely unhappy. I'm gonna try to keep him that way.
Clint Barton: You're not a match for him, Cap.
Steve Rogers: Thanks, Barton.

Clint Barton: Hey. Hey, you okay?
Wanda Maximoff: This is all our fault.
Clint Barton: Hey, look at me. It's your fault, it's everyone's fault, who cares. Are you up for this? Are you? Look, I just need to know cause the city is flying. Ok, look, the city is flying, we're fighting an army of robots, and I have a bow and arrow. None of this makes sense. But I'm going back out there cause it's my job. Ok, and I can't do my job and babysit. Doesn't matter what you did, or what you were. If you go out there, you fight and you fight to kill. Stay in here, you're good. I'll send your brother to come find you. But if you step out that door, you are an Avenger. All right, good chat.

Tony Stark: All deference to the Man Who Wouldn't Be King, but it's rigged.
Clint Barton: You bet your ass!
Maria Hill: Steve, he said a bad language word!
Steve Rogers: [to Tony] Did you tell everyone about that?

Clint Barton: [Laura checks Clint's wound from Quicksilver] See you're worried for nothing. Can't even feel the difference, can you?
Laura: If they're sleeping here, some of them are gonna have to double up.
Clint Barton: [laughs] Yeah, that's not gonna sell.
Laura: What about Nat and Dr. Banner? How long has that been going on?
Clint Barton: Has what?
Laura: [laughs] You are so cute.
Clint Barton: Nat and... and Banner?
Laura: I'll explain when you're older. Hawkeye.
Clint Barton: Oh. Okay.

Clint Barton: Gentleman, this is Laura.
Laura: I know all your names.
[All look at her awkwardly]
Clint Barton: Ooh, incoming.
[Clint's son and daughter run in]
Lila Barton: Dad!
Clint Barton: [Clint picks up his daughter] I see her!
Clint Barton: [Kissing the top his son's head] Hey, buddy! How you guys doing? Ooh...
Thor: These are... smaller agents.
Clint Barton: Look at your face! Oh, my goodness!

Lila Barton: Did you bring Auntie Nat?
Natasha Romanoff: Why don't you hug her and find out?
[Lila rushes towards Natasha who picks her up in her arms]
Steve Rogers: Sorry for barging in on you.
Tony Stark: Yeah, we would have called ahead, but we were busy having no idea that you existed.
Clint Barton: Yeah, well Fury helped me set this up when I joined. He kept it off SHIELD's files, I'd like to keep it that way. I figure it's a good place to lay low.
Laura: Honey. Ah, I missed you.
Natasha Romanoff: [Touching Laura's pregnant stomach] How's little Natasha, huh?
Laura: She's... Nathaniel.
Natasha Romanoff: [Natasha bends towards Laura's stomach] Traitor.

Announcer: [the Avengers are in the process of infiltrating a HYDRA base in Sovokia] Report to your stations immediately. This is not a drill. We are under attack. We are under attack.
Tony Stark: [Tony hits the shield around the base] Shit!
Steve Rogers: Language! Jarvis, what's the view from upstairs?
Jarvis: The central building is protected by some kind of energy shield. Strucker's technology is well beyond any other Hydra base we've taken.
Thor: Loki's scepter must be here. Strucker couldn't mount this defense without it. At long last.
Natasha Romanoff: [Natasha knocks out some soldiers] At long last is lasting a little long, boys.
Clint Barton: [as some soldiers shoot at Clint] Yeah. I think we lost the element of surprise.
Tony Stark: Wait a second. No one else is going to deal with the fact that Cap just said "language?"
Steve Rogers: I know.
Steve Rogers: [Steve throws his bike at some soldiers driving up in their truck] It just slipped out.


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.


Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Clint Barton: The futurist is here, gentlemen! He sees all. He knows what's best for you, whether you like it or not.

Clint Barton: [about Stark] You gotta watch your back with this guy!
[pounds the window in a rage]
Clint Barton: There's a chance he's gonna break it!

Clint Barton: [about to fire an arrow with Ant-Man on it] Buckled in?
Ant-Man: Yeah. No, I'm good. I'm good Arrow Guy. Let's go, let's go!


Thor (2011)
Clint Barton: Do you want me to take him down, or would you rather send in more guys for him to beat up?

Clint Barton: You better call it Coulson, 'cause I'm starting to root for this guy.


"The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes: Emperor Stark (#2.19)" (2012)
Steve Rogers: You okay, soldier?
Clint Barton: No. Not until I have Purple Man's head on my wall! Even if we have to go through Stark to do it!


"Iron Man: The Wedding of Iron Man (#1.13)" (1994)
Tony Stark: When the bug came in contact with the Armory monitor, it must have affected the rate of electrical conductivity.
Clint Barton: Right. Can I send away for the brochure to explain what you just said?


"The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes: Masters of Evil (#1.14)" (2010)
Clint Barton: You know, I'm not so sure I want to be part of a team I have to rescue every week.


"The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes: The Ultron Imperative (#1.23)" (2011)
[Ultron deploys laser cannons from his shoulders]
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.
Clint Barton: That's just perfect. What did Hulk contribute? Your bad attitude?


"The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes: The Casket of Ancient Winters (#1.20)" (2011)
