Bruce Banner: I should have killed you.

Father: Yeah? I should have killed you.

Bruce Banner: I wish you had. I saw her last night. Saw her face. Brown hair, brown eyes. She smiled at me. She reached down and kissed my cheek. I can almost remember her smell. It was like desert flowers.

Father: Her favorite perfume.

Bruce Banner: It was my mother, and I don't even know her name.

Father: It's alright, son. Go ahead and cry. Go ahead and cry. Cry. Crying will do you good.

Bruce Banner: Don't touch me! Maybe, once you were my father, but you're not now and you never will be.

Father: Oh, is that so? Well, I've got news for you. I didn't come here to see you. I came here to see my son. My real son. The one inside of you. You're nothing but a superficial shell, a husk of flimsy consciousness ready to be torn off at a moments notice.

Bruce Banner: You can think what you like. I don't care, just go!

Father: Now, son, listen to me. I've found a cure... for me. My cells can transform, too. Absorb enormous amounts of energy, but unlike you, they're unstable. Son, I need your strength. I gave you life, now you must give it back to me! Only a million times more radiant, more powerful!

Bruce Banner: Stop!

Father: Stop what? STOP WHAT! Think about all those men out there, in their uniforms! Barking and swallowing orders! Inflicting their petty rule over the entire globe! Think of all the harm they've done! To you, to me! To humanity! And know this, that we can make them, and their flags and their anthems and their governments disappear! In a flash, you and me!

Bruce Banner: I'd rather die!

Father: Oh, that's your answer and indeed you shall die and be reborn a hero! Of the kind that walked the Earth long before the pale religions of civilization infected humanity's soul!

Bruce Banner: DON'T!

Father: [David stops and shortly mocks Bruce in a calm manner] Stop your bawling, you weak little speck of human trash.

[David gets up from his chair, yelling]

Father: I'll go! You just watch me go!

Bruce Banner: [that ominous green glow in his eyes] Talbot?

Talbot: Yeah?

Bruce Banner: You're making me angry.

Talbot: Oh, am I?

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.

Talbot: See, I need your cells to trigger some chemical distress signals. You know, so you can turn a little green for me again, and I can carve off a piece of the real you, analyze it, patent it, make a fortune. Do you mind?

Bruce Banner: I'll never let you.

Talbot: I'm not sure you've got much of a choice.

[Talbot abuses Bruce]

Talbot: Come on, Bruce. Aren't you feeling a little angry? After all, you've only got me to play with now that Betty's dumped you and gone back to Berkeley.

Bruce Banner: You're lying!

Talbot: You know, for me this is a win-win situation. You turn green, and all these guys come in and kill you and I perform the autopsy. You don't, and I mop the floor with you, and maybe by accident go too far and break your neck. Bad science, maybe, but personally gratifying.

Father: [absorbing Hulk's energy] Sleep, Bruce, and forget 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!

Betty Ross: All you've given Bruce is fear. Fear of life.

Father: Fear. Perhaps, Miss Ross. And loneliness, too. Yes. I feel them both. But I have lived completely once. I was so much in love. And she so much wanted a baby. My baby. I could tell from the moment she conceived that it wasn't a son I had given her, but something else. A monster, maybe. I should have put a stop to it right then, but I was curious, and that was my downfall. And as I watched this tiny life unfold, I began to imagine the horror of it, and my curiosity was replaced with compassion. But they took away my chance to cure him. Your father threw me out. I remember that day so well. Every moment. Every sensation. Walking into the house. The feeling of the handle of the knife in my hand. I knew I was doing a father's work, fulfilling a father's mercy... but then she surprised me. It was as if she and the knife merged. You cannot imagine the unbearable finality of it. And in that one moment, I took everything that was dear to me and transformed it into nothing more than a memory.

Father: How little you understand, Miss Ross. And how dangerous your ignorance has become.

Betty Ross: I'm sorry?

Father: Don't be sorry. My son is... unique. That's why you can't relate to him. And because he is unique, the world will not tolerate his existence. Will they? But you - you try. Don't you?

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?

Father: And what have I done to my son, Miss Ross? Nothing. I tried to improve on the limits in myself. Myself, not him. Can you understand? To improve on nature, MY nature, knowledge of one's self. It's the only path to the truth that give men the power to go beyond God's boundaries.

Ross: [They have Bruce sedated at a secret army base] Suppose he gets out? Has one of his little mood swings in a populated area?

Betty Ross: Yes. I'm aware of the potential danger. I'm also aware that he saved my life.

Ross: Yeah, from a mutant French poodle. I'm indebted to him for that! He also put three men in a hospital, and Talbot's barely walking!

[as the Hulk rages around San Francisco]

Betty Ross: Dad, let me talk to him!

Ross: I know he's come there to find you! I'm not gonna let him get you!

Betty Ross: Just let me try, okay, Dad? He just needs a chance to calm down!

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.

Bruce Banner: You know what scares me the most ? When it happens, when it comes over me... and I totally lose control, I like it.

Bruce Banner: [From teaser trailer, voice only] Even now, I can feel it. Buried somewhere deep inside. Watching me. Waiting. But you know what scares me the most? When I can't fight it anymore, when it takes over, when I totally lose control. I like it.

Betty Ross: What happened to you last night?

Bruce Banner: I had the most vivid dream. It was like being born. Coming up for air, light hitting my face, screaming. My heartbeat was like boom, boom, boom.

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.

Ross: I'm requesting national authority command override; Angry Man is unsecure. I need everything we have at my command in order to stop his movement.

National Security Advisor: You're expecting *civilian* casualties, General?

Ross: Not if I can help it, Ma'am.

Paramilitary: [In Spanish, last lines] Take all the medicine! Quiet! Sit down! Shut up!

Bruce Banner: We need these medicines for the people who live here.

Paramilitary: Who are you to decide what the people need? These people are helping our enemies. And maybe you are too. Take all this! It is the property of the government!

Bruce Banner: You're making me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.
