Iron Man (2008) Poster


Jeff Bridges: Obadiah Stane



  • Obadiah Stane : How ironic, Tony! Trying to rid the world of weapons, you gave it its best one ever! And now, I'm going to kill you with it!

  • William Ginter Riva : Mr. Stane. Sir, we've explored what you've asked us and it seems as though there's a little hiccup. Actually, um...

    Obadiah Stane : A hiccup?

    William Ginter Riva : Yes, to power the suit... sir, the technology doesn't actually exist. So it...

    Obadiah Stane : Wait, wait, the technology?

    [puts an arm around him] 

    Obadiah Stane : William...

    [points at the giant arc reactor] 

    Obadiah Stane : Here is the technology. I've asked you to simply make it smaller.

    William Ginter Riva : All right, sir, that's what we're trying to do, but... honestly, it's impossible.

    Obadiah Stane : [shouting]  Tony Stark was able to build this in a cave! With a box of scraps!

    William Ginter Riva : Well, I'm sorry. I'm not Tony Stark.

  • Iron Monger : You had a great idea, Tony, but my suit is more advanced in every way!

    Iron Man : How'd you solve the icing problem?

    Iron Monger : Icing problem?

    [his suit begins to fail] 

    Iron Man : Might want to look into it.

    [He raps his fist on Iron Monger's frozen helmet as his suit fails and plummets to the ground] 

  • Obadiah Stane : [to Stark]  When I ordered the hit on you, I was worried that I was killing the golden goose. But, you see, it was just fate that you survived it, leaving one last golden egg to give. You really think that just because you have an idea, it belongs to you? Your father, he helped give us the atomic bomb. Now what kind of world would it be today if he was as selfish as you?

  • Obadiah Stane : I've never really had a taste for this kind of thing, but I must admit I'm deeply enjoying the suit!

  • Raza : [a side of his face scarred]  Compliments of Tony Stark.

    Obadiah Stane : If you'd killed him when you were supposed to, you'd still have a face.

  • Obadiah Stane : Shame you had to bring Pepper into this. I would have preferred she live...

  • [after paralyzing Raza with a sonic device] 

    Obadiah Stane : Technology. That's always been your Achilles heel in this part of the world. Don't worry, it'll only last for fifteen minutes.

    [pats Raza on the head and walks out of the tent] 

    Obadiah Stane : That's the least of your problems.

  • Obadiah Stane : [discussing the company's future with Tony]  We're iron mongers, we make weapons.

  • [Tony suggests doing something different besides manufacturing weapons] 

    Obadiah Stane : Like what? Make baby bottles?

  • Obadiah Stane : You ripped out my targeting system... Hold still, you little prick!

  • Tony Stark : Why aren't you wearing those pajamas I got you?

    Obadiah Stane : Good night, Tony...

  • Obadiah Stane : For thirty years, I've been holding you up! I built this company up from nothing! Nothing's gonna stand in my way - least of all, *you*!

  • Rhodey : As liaison to Stark Industries, I have a unique privilege of serving with a real patriot. He is my friend, and he is my great mentor. Ladies and gentlemen, it is my honor to present this year's Apogee Award to Mr. Tony Stark!

    [crowd applauds] 

    Rhodey : Tony?

    [Stark is not present, so Stane approaches the stage] 

    Obadiah Stane : [accepting the award]  Thank you, Colonel. This is beautiful. Thank you all very much. This is wonderful. Well, I'm not Tony Stark.


    Obadiah Stane : But if I were Tony, I would tell you how honored I feel, and what a joy it is to receive this very prestigious award. Tony, you know, the best thing about Tony is also the worst thing - he's always working.

    [cuts to Stark playing craps in a casino] 

  • [the Iron Monger lifts a car with a family in it] 

    Iron Monger : I love this suit!

    Iron Man : Put 'em down!

    Iron Monger : Collateral damage, Tony!

  • [Iron Man is launched into the sky by Iron Monger's missile, but instead of crashing, he activates his flight repulsors and hovers] 

    Iron Monger : Impressive! You've upgraded your armor! I've made some upgrades of my own...

    [activates jets and starts to fly too] 

    Jarvis : Sir, it appears his suit can fly.

    Iron Man : Duly noted.

  • Tony Stark : How'd it go?

    [Stark sees a pizza box on the table] 

    Tony Stark : Oh, that bad, huh?

    Obadiah Stane : Just because I brought pizza back from New York doesn't mean it went bad.

  • [Iron Monger breaks out of the building] 

    Iron Monger : Where do you think you're going?

    [aims a blaster at Pepper] 

    Iron Monger : Your services are no longer required.

  • Iron Monger : I love this suit!

  • Obadiah Stane : [staring at the Mark I armour]  So that's how he did it...

    Raza : Tony Stark has created the ultimate weapon: a masterpiece of death. A man with a dozen of these could rule all of Asia.

  • Virginia 'Pepper' Potts : Obadiah, he-he's gone insane!

    Iron Man : I know!

    Virginia 'Pepper' Potts : He-he built a suit!

    Iron Man : Listen, you'd better get out of there! Just get out-!

    [Iron Monger breaks up through the ground] 

    Iron Monger : Where do you think you're going?

  • Obadiah Stane : [holding Tony's arc reactor]  A new generation of weapons... with this at its heart.
