Quotes 

  • Loki : Enough! You are, all of you are beneath me! I am a god, you dull creature, and I will not be bullied by...

    [Hulk flattens Loki with repeated smashes into the floor] 

    The Hulk : Puny god.

  • Steve Rogers : Thor, what's his play?

    Thor : He has an army, called the Chitauri. They're not of Asgard or any world known. He means to lead them against your people. They will win him the Earth. In return, I suspect, for the Tesseract.

    Steve Rogers : An army. From outer space.

    Bruce Banner : So he's building another portal. That's what he needs Erik Selvig for.

    Thor : Selvig?

    Bruce Banner : He's an astrophysicist.

    Thor : He's a friend.

    Natasha Romanoff : Loki has them under some kind of spell. Along with one of ours.

    Steve Rogers : I wanna know why Loki let us take him. He's not leading an army from here.

    Bruce Banner : I don't think we should be focusing on Loki. That guy's brain is a bag full of cats. You can smell crazy on him.

    Thor : Have a care how you speak! Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard and he is my brother!

    Natasha Romanoff : He killed eighty people in two days.

    Thor : He's adopted.

  • Security Guard : Are you an alien?

    Bruce Banner : What?

    Security Guard : From outer space, an alien.

    Bruce Banner : No.

    Security Guard : Well then son, you've got a condition.

  • Steve Rogers : Does Loki need any particular kind of power source?

    Bruce Banner : He'd have to heat the cube to a hundred and twenty million Kelvin just to break through the Coulomb barrier.

    Tony Stark : Unless Selvig has figured out how to stabilize the quantum tunnelling effect.

    Bruce Banner : Well, if he could do that, he could achieve heavy ion fusion at any reactor on the planet.

    Tony Stark : Finally, someone who speaks English.

    Steve Rogers : Is that what just happened?

    [Stark and Banner shake hands] 

    Tony Stark : It's good to meet you, Dr. Banner. Your work on anti-electron collisions is unparalleled. And I'm a huge fan of the way you lose control and turn into an enormous green rage monster.

    Bruce Banner : Thanks.

    Nick Fury : [to Stark]  Dr. Banner is only here to track the cube. I was hoping you might join him.

    Steve Rogers : Let's start with that stick of his. It may be magical, but it works an awful lot like a Hydra weapon.

    Nick Fury : I don't know about that, but it is powered by the cube. And I'd like to know how Loki used it to turn two of the sharpest men I know into his personal flying monkeys.

    Thor : Monkeys? I do not understand.

    Steve Rogers : I do!

    [Stark rolls his eyes, while Captain America looks proud of himself] 

    Steve Rogers : I understood that reference.

  • Steve Rogers : Doctor Banner, now might be a good time for you to get angry.

    Bruce Banner : That's my secret, Captain: I'm always angry.

    [Banner hulks out and punches the Leviathan] 

  • Tony Stark : You know, I've got a cluster of shrapnel, trying every second to crawl its way into my heart.

    [Stark points at the mini-arc reactor in his chest] 

    Tony Stark : This stops it. This little circle of light. It's part of me now, not just armor. It's a... terrible privilege.

    Bruce Banner : But you can control it.

    Tony Stark : Because I learned how.

    Bruce Banner : It's different.

    [Banner tries to read the computer screen, but Stark slides the data aside with his finger so the two can see face-to-face] 

    Tony Stark : Hey, I've read all about your accident. That much gamma exposure should have killed you.

    Bruce Banner : So you're saying that the Hulk... the other guy... saved my life? That's nice. It's a nice sentiment. Save it for what?

    Tony Stark : I guess we'll find out.

    [Banner and Stark get back to work at their respective computers] 

    Bruce Banner : You might not like that.

    Tony Stark : You just might.

  • Natasha Romanoff : [all arguing in the lab]  Are you really that dense? S.H.I.E.L.D. monitors potential threats.

    Bruce Banner : Captain America is on threat watch?

    Natasha Romanoff : We ALL are!

    Tony Stark : [to Rogers]  You're on that list? Are you above or below angry bees?

    Steve Rogers : I swear, Stark, one more wisecrack out of you...

    Tony Stark : Verbal threat! Threatening! I'm being threatened!

  • [Banner arrives in New York on a motorcycle just as the Chitauri have begun their attack] 

    Bruce Banner : So... this all seems horrible.

    Black Widow : I've seen worse.

    Bruce Banner : Sorry.

    Black Widow : No, we could... use... a little worse.

  • Natasha Romanoff : Gentlemen, you might want to step inside in a minute. It's going to get a little hard to breathe.

    [as the Helicarrier starts to power up, Steve Rogers and Bruce Banner walk to the edge] 

    Steve Rogers : Is this a submarine?

    Bruce Banner : Really? They want me submerged in a pressurized metal container?

    [Rogers and Banner stand at the edge and they look over as the Helicarrier starts to slowly rise out of the ocean to fly] 

    Bruce Banner : [smiles]  Oh, no, this is MUCH worse!

    [Rogers hands $10 to Fury] 

  • Natasha Romanoff : Doctor, we're facing a potential global catastrophe.

    Bruce Banner : Well, THOSE I actively try to avoid.

    Natasha Romanoff : This is the Tesseract.

    [she shows him a photo of the Tesseract on her cell phone] 

    Natasha Romanoff : It has the potential energy to wipe out the planet.

    Bruce Banner : What does Fury want me to do? Swallow it?

    Natasha Romanoff : Well, he wants you to find it. It's been taken. It omits a gamma signature that's too weak for us to trace. There's no one that knows gamma radiation like you do. If there was, that's where I'd be.

    Bruce Banner : So Fury isn't after the monster?

    Natasha Romanoff : Not that he's told me.

    Bruce Banner : And he tells you everything?

    Natasha Romanoff : Talk to Fury, he needs you on this.

    Bruce Banner : He needs me in a cage?

    Natasha Romanoff : No one's gonna put you in a...

    Bruce Banner : STOP LYING TO ME!

    [cringing back, Natasha quickly grabs her gun and points it at Banner] 

    Bruce Banner : I'm sorry, that was mean. I just wanted to see what you'd do. Why don't we do this the easy way, where you don't use that, and the other guy doesn't make a mess? Okay?

    [Natasha, still wary, doesn't lower her gun] 

    Bruce Banner : Natasha?

    Natasha Romanoff : [she lowers her gun and speaks into her earpiece to the SHIELD agents who are surrounding the building outside]  Stand down. We're good here.

    Bruce Banner : [Banner looks at Natasha in amusement]  Just you and me?

  • Nick Fury : [having discovered a security breach]  What are you doing, Mr Stark?

    Tony Stark : Uh, kind of been wondering the same thing about you.

    Nick Fury : You're supposed to be locating the Tesseract!

    Bruce Banner : We are! The model's locked and we're sweeping for the signature now. When we get the hit, we'll have a signature within half a mile.

    Tony Stark : Yeah, you'll get your cube back, no mas, no fuss.

    [pause] 

    Tony Stark : What is Phase 2?

    Steve Rogers : [drops a weapon on a table]  Phase 2 is SHIELD uses the Cube to make weapons! Sorry, the computer was moving a little slow for me.

    Nick Fury : Rogers, we gathered everything related to the Tesseract, this does not mean that we...

    Tony Stark : I'm sorry Nick, what were you lying?

    [turns a monitor around showing a schematic of a rocket] 

    Steve Rogers : I was wrong, Director. The world hasn't changed a bit.

  • Steve Rogers : Word is you can find the cube.

    Bruce Banner : Is that the only word on me?

    Steve Rogers : Only word I care about.

  • Tony Stark : You should come by Stark Tower sometime. Top 10 floors all R&D, you'd love it... it's candyland.

    Bruce Banner : Thanks, but the last time I was in New York I kind of broke... Harlem.

  • Thor : You speak of control, yet you court chaos.

    Bruce Banner : It's his M.O., isn't it? I mean, what are we, a team? No, no, no. We're a chemical mixture that makes chaos. We're... we're a time-bomb.

    Nick Fury : You need to step away.

    Tony Stark : Why shouldn't the guy let off a little steam?

    Steve Rogers : You know damn well why! Back off!

    Tony Stark : Oh, I'm starting to want you to make me.

  • Natasha Romanoff : You want to think about removing yourself from this environment, Doctor?

    Bruce Banner : [chuckles]  I was in Calcutta, I was pretty well removed.

    Natasha Romanoff : Loki is manipulating you.

    Bruce Banner : And you been doing what, exactly?

    Natasha Romanoff : You didn't come here because I batted my eyelashes at you.

    Bruce Banner : Yes, and I'm not leaving because suddenly you get a little twitchy.

  • Nick Fury : Agent Romanoff, would you escort Dr. Banner back to his...

    Bruce Banner : Back where? You rented my room.

    Nick Fury : The cell was built...

    Bruce Banner : In case you needed to kill me, but you can't! I know! I tried!... I got low. I didn't see an end, so I put a bullet in my mouth... and the other guy spit it out! So I moved on. I focused on helping other people. I was good, until you dragged me back into this freak show and put everyone here at risk!

    [Banner slowly gets upset as he looks at Romanoff, who gets unnerved] 

    Bruce Banner : You wanna know my secret, Agent Romanoff? You wanna know how I stay calm?

    [Black Widow and Nick Fury have their hands down to grab their guns] 

    Steve Rogers : Doctor Banner... put down the scepter.

    [Banner looks down and is shocked to see he's holding Loki's scepter; the computer beeps] 

    Tony Stark : Got it.

    [Banner puts down the scepter and heads to the computer] 

    Bruce Banner : Sorry, kids. You don't get to see my little party trick after all.

  • Natasha Romanoff : Doctor Banner... Bruce, you gotta fight it. This is just what Loki wants. We're gonna be okay. Listen to me. We're gonna be okay, right? I swear on my life I will get you out of this! You will walk away, and never...

    Bruce Banner : [snaps]  YOUR LIFE...?

    [Hulks out] 

  • Bruce Banner : Should have got paid up front, Banner.

    Natasha Romanoff : [comes up behind him]  You know, for a man who's supposed to be avoiding stress, you picked a hell of a place to settle.

    Bruce Banner : Avoiding stress isn't the secret.

    Natasha Romanoff : Then, what is it? Yoga?

    Bruce Banner : You brought me to the edge of the city, smart. I uh... assume the whole place is surrounded?

    Natasha Romanoff : Just you and me.

    Bruce Banner : And your actress buddy, is she a spy too? Do they start that young?

    Natasha Romanoff : I did.

    Bruce Banner : Who are you?

    Natasha Romanoff : Natasha Romanoff.

    Bruce Banner : Are you here to kill me, Miss Romanoff? Because that's not gonna work out for everyone.

    Natasha Romanoff : No. No. Of course not. I'm here on behalf of SHIELD.

    Bruce Banner : SHIELD. How did they find me?

    Natasha Romanoff : We never lost you, doctor. We've kept our distance, even helped keep some other interested parties off your scent.

    Bruce Banner : Why?

    Natasha Romanoff : Nick Fury seems to trust you. But now I need you to come in.

    Bruce Banner : What if I said no?

    Natasha Romanoff : I'll persuade you.

    Bruce Banner : And what if the... other guy says no?

    Natasha Romanoff : You've been more than a year without an incident. I don't think you wanna break that streak.

    Bruce Banner : I don't get always what I want.

  • Bruce Banner : I'd like to know why SHIELD is using the Tesseract to build weapons of mass destruction.

    Nick Fury : Because of him!

    [points at Thor] 

    Thor : Me?

    Nick Fury : Last year, Earth had a visit from another planet that had a grudge match that leveled a small town. We learned that only are we not alone, but we are hopelessly, hilariously outgunned.

    Thor : My people want nothing but peace with your planet!

    Nick Fury : But you're not the only ones out there, are you? And you're not the only threat. The world is filling up with people that can't be matched, that can't be controlled!

    Steve Rogers : Like you control the cube?

  • [Nick Fury and Dr. Bruce Banner shake hands] 

    Nick Fury : Doctor, thank you for coming.

    Bruce Banner : Thanks for asking nicely. So, uh... how long am I staying?

    Nick Fury : Once we get our hands on the Tesseract, you're in the clear.

    Bruce Banner : Where are you with that?

    [Nick Fury turns to Agent Coulson to explain, while Natasha Romanoff eyes an image of Clint Barton on a computer screen] 

    Agent Phil Coulson : We're sweeping every wirelessly accessible camera on the planet. Cell phones, laptops. If it's connected to a satellite, it's eyes and ears for us.

    Natasha Romanoff : That's still not gonna find them in time.

    Bruce Banner : You have to narrow the field. How many spectrometers do you have access to?

    Nick Fury : How many are there?

    Bruce Banner : Call every lab you know, tell them to put the spectrometers on the roof and calibrate them for gamma rays. I'll rough out a tracking algorithm based on cluster recognition. At least we could rule out a few places. Do you have somewhere for me to work?

    Nick Fury : Agent Romanoff, would you show Dr. Banner to his laboratory, please.

    [Natasha nods and walks off, leading Banner down the hall] 

    Natasha Romanoff : You're gonna love it, Doc. We got all the toys.

  • Maria Hill : Thor, what's his play?

    Thor : He has an army, called the Chitauri. They're not of Asgard or any world known. He means to lead them against your people. They will win him the Earth. In return, I suspect, for the Tesseract.

    Maria Hill : An army. From outer space.

    Natasha Romanoff : So he's building another portal. That's what he needs Erik Selvig for.

    Thor : Selvig?

    Natasha Romanoff : He's an astrophysicist.

    Bruce Banner : I don't think we should be focusing on Loki. That guy's brain is a bag full of cats. You can smell crazy on him.

    Thor : Take care how you speak. Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard. And he is my brother.

    Natasha Romanoff : He killed eighty people in two days.

    Thor : ...He's adopted.
