"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Pilot (#1.1)" (2013)
Mike Peterson: You said if we worked hard, if we did right, we'd have a place. You said it was enough to be a man but there's better then man! There's gods... and the rest of us? What are we? They're giants... we're what they step on.
Phil Coulson: I know. I've seen giants, up close, and that privilege cost me, nearly everything. But the good ones, the real deal? They're not heroes because of what they have that we don't, it's what they do with it. You're right, Mike, it matters who you are.
Mike Peterson: I could, you know? Be a hero.
Phil Coulson: I'm counting on it.

Skye: You're in danger.
Mike Peterson: What do you mean danger?
Skye: S.H.I.E.L.D.
Mike Peterson: [Confused] Shield what? I should carry a shield?
Skye: S.H.I.E.L.D. Government. Scary men in dark suits who come after guys like you.

Skye: [Coming up to Mike in a diner] Just act natural.
Mike Peterson: What?
Skye: Just pretend that we're talking.
Mike Peterson: We *are*.
Skye: Good. 'Cause you never know who's listening.
Mike Peterson: I don't even know who's *talking*.

Debbie: You said you could keep it together. Our first subject lost it... walked into the lab with a fricking bomb.
Mike Peterson: [Indignant] I'm not like him.
Debbie: Well, tell that to your foreman in the I.C.U.
Mike Peterson: I saved you!
Debbie: You *exposed* me! You exposed the program.
[Exhales sharply]
Debbie: The people who gave me this technology... they are very serious and they do not want to be revealed. Mike Peterson needs to disappear.
Mike Peterson: [Thoughtful] You're right. I'm not him anymore. I'm someone else now.
Debbie: Oh please. You're juiced Mike. And you're losing it just like the last guy.
[sighs]
Debbie: This is a disaster.
Mike Peterson: No. It's an Origin Story.

Mike Peterson: You and me. What are we?
Ace Peterson: We're a Team.


"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Bridge (#1.10)" (2013)
Mike Peterson: Did I beat Captain America's time?
Trainer: Not even close.

Mike Peterson: Agent Coulson?
Phil Coulson: Mr. Peterson, if you could put that bulldozer back where you found it... we need you to suit up.

Mike Peterson: They tried to take it off of me at the sci-ops facility. Realized they couldn't do it without killing me.
Jemma Simmons: I'm afraid we're terribly curious. How did they stabilize the Extremis in you?
Leo Fitz: And keep you from exploding?
Jemma Simmons: Yeah.
Mike Peterson: Oh, that wasn't them. That was you two.
Leo Fitz: Come again?
Jemma Simmons: What's that?
Mike Peterson: Your gun. It somehow froze me right at the moment I was about to explode., helped my body absorb the serum, stabilize. Your weapon saved my life.
Jemma Simmons: [scoffs] Well...
Mike Peterson: All that, and it didn't leave a scar, so...
Jemma Simmons: Well, I...
Leo Fitz: Well, I should think not.
Jemma Simmons: Yeah, we couldn't have that, could we? It would be a shame if, especially if you're so, well, formed and symmetrical.
Jemma Simmons: [to Leo] Wh-when did you stop talking?
Leo Fitz: About three embarrassing sentences ago.

Mike Peterson: Agent Coulson, Agent May.
[May says nothing and turns away coldly]
Phil Coulson: Last time you saw her, you threw her into a brick wall.
Mike Peterson: Right.
[pause]
Mike Peterson: First time around, I wasn't who I wanted to be, but now I get it. Having all this it's a privilege. And training to be an agent, working with SHIELD, it's me trying to do better, trying to be better. I just need you to give me a shot.
Phil Coulson: Everyone deserves a second chance. But let me be clear: there will not be a third.

Mike Peterson: [imprisoned] We didn't get to formally meet. My name's Mike. I think we got knocked out together.
Lincoln Campbell: You're the guy with the parts. You know where we are?
Mike Peterson: No. At least they haven't killed us yet. But there are bodies out there.
Lincoln Campbell: Oh, great. You got all that hardware. Use one of those weapons and get us out of here.
Mike Peterson: Right. Because I didn't think of that.
Lincoln Campbell: At least your sarcasm still works.

Mike Peterson: [He's been found by the team in the medical ward, bandages covering a missing eye and half of one leg] It's not as bad as it looks.
Jemma Simmons: Really?
Mike Peterson: Nah. It's pretty bad.

Skye: He's a murderer.
Mike Peterson: Yes, he is. Are you?
