Captain Marvel (2019)
Samuel L. Jackson: Nick Fury
Nick Fury : We have no idea what other intergalactic threats are out there. And our one woman security force had a prior commitment on the other side of the universe. S.H.I.E.L.D. alone can't protect us. We need to find more.
Agent Coulson : More weapons?
Nick Fury : More heroes.
Agent Coulson : You think you can find others like her?
Nick Fury : We found her and we weren't even looking.
Nick Fury : You know anything about a lady blowing up a Blockbuster? Witnesses say she was dressed for laser tag.
Nick Fury : Coulson. New guy. Guess he doesn't hate me yet.
Carol Danvers : You have three names. What do people call you?
Nick Fury : Fury.
Carol Danvers : Just Fury?
Nick Fury : Yep. Not Nicholas. Not Joseph. Just Fury.
Carol Danvers : What does your mother call you then?
Nick Fury : Fury.
Carol Danvers : What do your friends call you?
Nick Fury : Fury.
Carol Danvers : Kids?
Nick Fury : If I ever have them? Fury.
Carol Danvers : [Referring to the front of the baseball cap that Fury has given her] What is it?
Nick Fury : It's a S.H.I.E.L.D. logo.
Carol Danvers : Does, uh, announcing your identity On clothing help with the covert part of your job?
Nick Fury : Said the space soldier who's wearing a rubber suit.
Nick Fury : Space invasion, big car chase... truth be told, I was ready to hang it up. 'Till I met you today.
Nick Fury : I know a renegade soldier when I see one. Never occurred to me that one might come from above.
[Vers and Fury arrive at the Records room of the Project Pegasus facility]
Nick Fury : Oh! Let me get my fingerprint out. Just let me unravel this puppy and we'll...
[Vers blasts the lock off the doors]
Nick Fury : You sat there and watched me play with tape, when all you had to do was...
Carol Danvers : I didn't want to steal your thunder.
[Fury grabs Goose]
Nick Fury : That was a close call, huh, Goosey? Huh?
[Fury laughs while Goose meows loudly]
Nick Fury : Those bad guys still in there somewhere?
[Goose suddenly scratches Fury in his left eye]
Nick Fury : Ow! Mother Flerken!
Maria Rambeau : Are you okay?
Nick Fury : Yeah. It's just a scratch.
Talos : No.
Nick Fury : You know you're glowing, right?
Carol Danvers : I'll explain it later.
[Carol opens the lunch box, revealing the Tesseract while Fury removes Goose's muzzle]
Carol Danvers : Take the Tesseract. Leave the lunch box.
Nick Fury : Me?
Carol Danvers : Yes.
Nick Fury : I'm not touching that thing.
Carol Danvers : You want me to get you an oven mitt?
[Goose suddenly reveals tentacles from his mouth and uses them to grab the Tesseract and swallow it. Fury drops Goose]
Nick Fury : Whoa!
[Surprised look on Fury and Maria's faces]
Carol Danvers : Get the Skrulls on the Quadjet and go. Take the... Flerken with you.
[Carol walks out]
Maria Rambeau : What about you?
Carol Danvers : I'll buy you some time!
[Fury looks at Goose]
Nick Fury : I'm picking you up now.
[Fury picks up Goose]
Nick Fury : I'm trusting you not to eat me.
Nick Fury : Congrats to you, Starforce lady. You're under arrest.
[Vers and Fury enter the fifth floor of the Project Pegasus facility when a cat approaches them]
Nick Fury : Hey there. How are you? Oh my goodness. Look at you. Just look at you. Aren't you the cutest looking thing? Aren't you cute? And what's your name, huh? What's your name? "Goose." Cool name for a cool cat.
Carol Danvers : Fury?
Nick Fury : Hmm?
[Fury gets up]
Nick Fury : [whispers to Goose] I'll be back.
Maria Rambeau : Can I ask you something? Do you just turn into anything you want?
Talos : Ah well, I have to see it first.
Maria Rambeau : Can you all do it?
Talos : Physiologically, yeah. But it takes practice and, um, dare I say it, talent to do it well.
Nick Fury : Can you turn into a cat?
Talos : What's a cat?
Maria Rambeau : What about a filing cabinet?
Talos : Why would I turn into a filing cabinet?
Nick Fury : A venus fly trap. I'll give you $50 right now if you turn into a venus fly trap.
[an infant Skrull shows off her high-score on pinball; 968,400]
Nick Fury : If I played the same pinball machine for six years, I'd have some high scores, too.
[Vers activates her beacon before Fury knocks on the payphone booth]
Nick Fury : Excuse me, miss. You know anything about a lady blowing a hole through the roof of that Blockbuster over there? Witness says she was dressed for laser tag.
Carol Danvers : Oh. Yeah, I think she went that way.
[Vers proceeds to walk away, but Fury stops her and shows him his I.D]
Nick Fury : Uh, I'd like to ask you some questions. Maybe give you the 411 on the late-night drop box. Could I see some identification, please?
Carol Danvers : Vers. Kree Starforce. We don't carry our identification on little cards.
Nick Fury : Vers? Starforce? How long you plan to be in town?
Carol Danvers : Oh, I'll be out of your hair as soon as I track down the Skrulls that are infiltrating your planet.
Nick Fury : Skrulls?
Carol Danvers : Shapeshifters? They can transform into any life-form down to the DNA.
[Vers notices Fury and Coulson smiling]
Carol Danvers : Oh, boy. You guys don't have any clue, do you?
[Vers proceeds to walk away]
Nick Fury : Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on. How do we know you're not one of those shapeshifters?
Carol Danvers : Congratulations, Agent Fury. You have finally asked a relevant question.
Nick Fury : No! Congratulations to you, Starforce lady. You're under arrest.
[a police officer approaches Vers to cuff her when Vers suddenly notices a Skrull sniper disguised as a human aiming at her and Fury. The Skrull fires, but Vers pushes Fury away and fires back at the sniper before running after him. Fury heads for his car and calls out Coulson]
Nick Fury : Rook! Rook, let's roll!
Carol Danvers : [Carol gives Fury his pager] I upgraded it. Range should be, a couple galaxies, at least.
[as Fury goes to take the pager, Carol pulls back her hand]
Nick Fury : What? You think I'm going to prank call you?
Carol Danvers : For emergencies only. Okay?
Nick Fury : Well, if you're ever passing back through this galaxy, be sure to give a brother a shout.
Nick Fury : Who's a good kitty huh? Huh Goose? Yes, that's right. Who's a good kitty Goose? You're a good kitty.
Talos : You know, you really shouldn't have that thing on your lap.
Nick Fury : Our little alliance with you is tenuous at best. And as long as he continues to freak you out...
[holding Goose out and watching Talos recoil]
Nick Fury : ...like that, yeah, I'm gonna keep giving him all the love and hugs that he needs, right?
Carol Danvers : Keep the Tesseract on Earth. Hidden.
Nick Fury : You sure that's what Marvel would want?
Carol Danvers : Mar-Vell.
Nick Fury : That's what I said.
Carol Danvers : It's two words. Mar. Vell.
Nick Fury : Mar-Vell. "Marvel" sounds a lot better. You know, like the Marvelettes?
[as she looks on amused, he starts singing "Please, Mr. Postman"]
Nick Fury : Not ringing any bells?
Carol Danvers : Keep singing. Maybe it'll come back to me.
Nick Fury : You look like somebody's disaffected niece.
Carol Danvers : Where's Pegasus?
Nick Fury : That's classified. Not unlike the file I started on you. But I see you've changed it up a bit since then. Grunge is a good look for you.
Carol Danvers : Did you have a rough day, Agent Fury?
Nick Fury : It was cool, you know? Had a space invasion, big car chase. Got to watch an alien autopsy. Typical 9-to-5.
Carol Danvers : So you saw one?
Nick Fury : I was never one to believe in aliens, but I can't unsee that.
Carol Danvers : Lawson's plan for the light-speed engine. I wonder why they terminated the project.
Nick Fury : [showing her a coded journal] Um, maybe because she's cuckoo.
Carol Danvers : [recognizing the language] Kree glyphs?
Nick Fury : Hmm?
Carol Danvers : Lawson is not cuckoo. She's Kree.
Nick Fury : Well, she's dead.
Carol Danvers : What?
Nick Fury : Crashed the Asis aircraft doing an unauthorized test flight. Took a pilot down with her. That's why security here is so unfriendly. They're covering up a billion-dollar mistake.
Carol Danvers : [to Talos and Soren] I'll help you find a home. Finish what Mar-Vell started.
Monica Rambeau (11 Years Old) : They can stay here with us. Can't they, mom?
Maria Rambeau : They won't be safe here, baby. Auntie Carol's right. They need their own home.
Carol Danvers : I'll be back before you know it.
Monica Rambeau (11 Years Old) : Maybe I could fly up and meet you halfway?
Nick Fury : Ah, only if you learn to glow like your Auntie Carol.
Monica Rambeau (11 Years Old) : Or maybe I'll build a spaceship. You don't know.
Carol Danvers : He doesn't.
[she laughs as he looks at her indignantly]
Carol Danvers : This is gonna get a little awkward, but I gotta ask.
Nick Fury : You think I'm one of those green things.
Carol Danvers : Can't be too careful.
Nick Fury : You are looking at 100% red-blooded Earth man.
Carol Danvers : I'm afraid I'm gonna need proof.
Nick Fury : We talking cheek swab or urine sample?
Carol Danvers : No. The DNA would match.
Nick Fury : Want my AOL password?
Carol Danvers : Skrulls can only sim recent memories of their host bodies.
Nick Fury : Oh, ho. You wanna get personal.
Carol Danvers : Where were you born?
Nick Fury : Huntsville, Alabama. But technically, I don't remember that part.
Carol Danvers : Name of your first pet?
Nick Fury : Mr. Snoofers.
Carol Danvers : Mr. Snoofers?
Nick Fury : That's what I said. Do I pass?
Carol Danvers : Not yet. First job?
Nick Fury : Solider. Straight out of high school. Left the ranks of a full bird colonel.
Carol Danvers : Then?
Nick Fury : Spy.
Carol Danvers : Where?
Nick Fury : It was the Cold War. We were everywhere. Uh, Belfast. Bucharest. Belgrade. Budapest. I like the Bs. I can make 'em rhyme.
Carol Danvers : Now?
Nick Fury : Been riding a desk for the past six years trying to figure out where our future enemies are coming from.
Nick Fury : The Skrulls sim alien races to infiltrate and take over planets. And you're a Kree? A race of noble warriors?
Carol Danvers : Heroes. Noble warrior heroes.
Nick Fury : So, um, what do Skrulls want with Dr. Lawson?
Carol Danvers : They believe that she developed a light-speed engine at Pegasus.
Nick Fury : Light-speed engine? Gotta admit, that's not the craziest thing I've heard today.
Carol Danvers : Well, it's still early.
Nick Fury : And you, what do you want?
Carol Danvers : To stop the Skrulls before they become unstoppable.
Keller : You say this thing looked like Coulson?
Nick Fury : Mm. Talked like him, too.
Keller : And the woman said that there were more?
Nick Fury : The word she used was "infiltration."
Keller : You believe her?
Nick Fury : Not 'til I saw this.
Keller : What's your plan?
Nick Fury : I'll find Blockbuster girl. I got word on a motorcycle thief that fits her description. If she can tell us why these lizards are here... maybe she can tell us how to kick 'em to the curb.
Keller : Good. Do it alone, though. We can't trust anyone. Not even our own men.
Talos : I know I don't deserve your trust, but you were our only lead. We discovered that your energy signature matched Mar-Vell's core. Now we know why. If only you knew the importance of it to me. I just need your help decoding the coordinates to Mar-Vell's lab.
Carol Danvers : Those weren't coordinates. They're state vectors.
Nick Fury : For orbital positioning and velocity.
Maria Rambeau : You didn't find her lab on Earth 'cause it's not on Earth.
Carol Danvers : That was the location on the date of the crash six years ago. If we track its course, we'll find it in orbit right now.
Maria Rambeau : It's just basic physics.
Talos : In orbit?
[to another Skrull]
Talos : Was that so difficult to figure out? I mean, you're my science guy, right?
