Quotes 

  • Thanos : Daughter.

    Young Gamora : Did you do it?

    Thanos : Yes.

    Young Gamora : What did it cost?

    Thanos : ...Everything.

  • Gamora : I was a child when you took me.

    Thanos : I saved you.

    Gamora : No. We were happy on my home planet.

    Thanos : You were going to bed hungry, scrounging for scraps. Your planet was on the brink of collapse. I'm the one who stopped that. You know what's happened since then? The children born have known nothing but full bellies and clear skies. It's a paradise.

    Gamora : Because you murdered half the planet.

    Thanos : A small price to pay for salvation.

    Gamora : You're insane.

    Thanos : Little one, it's a simple calculus. This universe is finite, its resources, finite. If life is left unchecked, life will cease to exist. It needs correcting.

    Gamora : You don't know that!

    Thanos : I'm the only one who knows that. At least, I'm the only one with the will to act on it.

  • Thanos : I know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right, yet to fail nonetheless. It's frightening, turns the legs to jelly. I ask you to what end? Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives all the same. And now it's here. Or should I say, I am.

  • Peter Parker : [while teleporting and beating up Thanos]  Magic. More Magic. Magic with a Kick. Mag...

    [Thanos graps Peter by the throat] 

    Thanos : Insect!

  • Thanos : [to Thor]  You should have gone for the head.

  • Loki : If you're going to Earth, you might want a guide. I do have a bit of experience in that arena.

    Thanos : Well, if you consider failure experience.

    Loki : I consider *experience* experience.

  • Thanos : The Tesseract? Or your brother's head? I assume you have a preference?

    Loki : Oh, I do. Kill away!

    [sees Thor's traumatic suffering, screaming in agony] 

    Loki : ALRIGHT, STOP!

    Thor : We don't have the Tesseract, it was destroyed on Asgard!

    [Loki reveals the Tesseract in his hands] 

    Thor : You really are the worst brother!

    Loki : I assure you, brother, the sun will shine on us again.

    Thanos : Your optimism is misplaced, Asgardian.

    Loki : Well, for one thing, I'm not Asgardian. And for another... we have a Hulk.

    [Hulk attacks Thanos] 

  • [from trailer] 

    Thanos : In time, you will know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right. Yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.

  • Thanos : [from trailer, facing off against the Avengers]  Fun isn't something one considers when balancing the universe. But this...

    [chuckles] 

    Thanos : ... does put a smile on my face.

  • Thanos : Stark.

    Tony Stark : You know me?

    Thanos : I do. You're not the only cursed with knowledge.

    Tony Stark : My only curse is you.

  • [Thanos has Gamora] 

    Peter Quill : You let her go!

    Thanos : Ah, the boyfriend.

    Peter Quill : I'd like to think of myself more as a titan-killing, long-term booty call.

  • Thanos : You have my respect, Stark. When I'm done, half of humanity will still be alive. I hope they remember you.

  • [Thor stands over a badly wounded Thanos] 

    Thor : I told you... that you would die for that.

    Thanos : [weakly]  You should've gone for the head.

    Thor : NO!

    [Thanos snaps his fingers] 

  • Thanos : You're strong... but I could snap my fingers... and you'd all cease to exist.

  • Thanos : Titan was like most planets. Too many mouths, not enough to go around. And when we faced extinction, I offered a solution.

    Dr. Stephen Strange : Genocide.

    Thanos : At random. Dispassionate, fair to rich and poor alike. They called me a mad man. And what I predicted came to pass.

    Dr. Stephen Strange : Congratulations, you're a prophet.

    Thanos : I'm a survivor.

    Dr. Stephen Strange : Who wants to murder trillions!

    Thanos : With all the six stones, I could simply snap my fingers, and they would all cease to exist. I call that... mercy.

    Dr. Stephen Strange : And then what?

    Thanos : I finally rest, and watch the sunrise on an grateful universe. The hardest choices require the strongest wills.

    Dr. Stephen Strange : I think you'll find our will equal to yours.

    Thanos : Our?

    [the Avengers appear] 

  • Thanos : How is it you know this place so well?

    Red Skull (Stonekeeper) : A lifetime ago, I too sought the stones. I even held one in my hand. But it cast me out, banished me here, guiding others to a treasure I cannot possess.

  • Thanos : Today I lost more than you could know, but now is no time to mourn. Now, is no time at all.

  • Thanos : [chokes Loki]  No resurrections this time.

  • [from trailer] 

    Thanos : When I'm done, half of humanity will still exist. Perfectly balanced, as all things should be... I hope they remember you.

  • Stonekeeper : What you seek lies in front of you. As does what you fear.

    Thanos : [on the edge of a cliff]  What's this?

    Stonekeeper : The price. The Soul Stone holds a special place among the Infinity Stones. You might say, it is a certain wisdom.

    Thanos : Tell me what it needs.

    Stonekeeper : To ensure that whoever possesses it understands its power, the stone demands a sacrifice.

    Thanos : Of what?

    Stonekeeper : In order to take the stone, you must lose that which you love. A soul for a soul.

  • Gamora : All my life I dreamed of a day, a moment, when you got what you deserved. And I was always so disappointed. But now you kill and torture and you call it mercy. The universe has judged you. You asked it for a prize and it told you no. You failed. And do you want to know why? Because you love nothing. No one.

    [Thanos sheds a tear] 

    Gamora : Really, tears?

    Red Skull (Stonekeeper) : They are not for him.

    Gamora : No. This isn't love.

    Thanos : I ignored my destiny once. I cannot do that again. Even for you. I'm sorry, Gamora.

    Gamora : NO!

  • Ebony Maw : Hear me and rejoice. You have had the privilege of being saved by the great Thanos. You may think this is suffering, no. It is salvation. The universal scale tips toward balance because of your sacrifice. Smile. For even in death, you have become children of Thanos.

    Thanos : I know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right, yet to fail none the less.

    [Picks Thor off the ground] 

    Thanos : Frightening. Turns the legs to jelly. I ask you to what end? Dread it? Run from it? Destiny arrives all the same, and now it's here. Or should I say: I am.

    Thor : You talk too much.

    Thanos : [to Loki while holding Thor by the head]  The Tesseract. Or your brother's head. I assume you have a preference.

    Loki : Oh, I do. Kill away.

    Thor : [Shrieks in pain as Thanos presses the Power stone against his head] 

    Loki : All right, stop!

    Thor : We don't have the Tesseract. It was destroyed on Asgard.

    Loki : [Presents the Tesseract to Thanos] 

    Thor : You really are the worst, brother.

    Loki : I assure you, brother... the sun will shine on us again.

    Thanos : Your optimism is misplaced, Asgardian.

    Loki : Well, for one thing, I'm not Asgardian. And for another... we have a Hulk.

    Ebony Maw : [while Hulk beats up Thanos]  Let him have his fun.

    Thanos : [Heimdall sends Hulk to Earth by summoning the bifrost]  That was a mistake

    Thor : [Thanos stabs Heimdall in the chest]  No! You're going to die for that.

    Ebony Maw : [Presenting the Tesseract to Thanos]  My humble personage bows before your grandeur. No other being has ever the might, nay the nobility, to wield not one, but two Infinity Stones. The universe, lies within your grasp.

    Thanos : There are two more stones on Earth. Find them my children, bring them to me on Titan.

    Proxima Midnight : Father, we will not fail you.

    Loki : If I might interject. If you're going to Earth, you might want a guide. I do have a bit of experience in that area.

    Thanos : If you consider failure experience.

    Loki : I consider experience experience. Almighty Thanos... I, Loki, prince of Asgard... Odinson... the rightful king of the Jotunheim... god of mischief... do hereby pledge to you... my undying fidelity.

    Thanos : [Uses the Gauntlet to stop Loki attempting to stab him in the neck]  Undying? You should chose your words more carefully.

    Loki : [as Thanos strangles him to death]  You... will never be... a god

    Thanos : No resurrections this time.

  • Thanos : [offering a cup of pudding]  I thought you might be hungry.

    [Gamora looks at the cup for a moment, then throws it at Thanos' throne] 

    Gamora : I always hated that chair.

    Thanos : So I've been told.

  • Thor : I told you, you'd die for that.

    Thanos : You... should've gone for the head

  • Dr. Stephen Strange : Oh yeah. You're much more of a Thanos.

    Thanos : I take it the Maw's dead. This day extracts a heavy toll, still he accomplished his mission.

    Dr. Stephen Strange : You may regret that. He brought you face to face with the Master of the Mystic Arts.

    Thanos : Where do you think he brought you?

    Dr. Stephen Strange : Let me guess, your home?

    Thanos : It was, and it was beautiful. Titan was like most planets. When we faced extinction, I offered a solution.

    Dr. Stephen Strange : Genocide.

    Thanos : They called me a mad man.

    Dr. Stephen Strange : Congratulations, you're a prophet.

    Thanos : I'm a survivor.

    Dr. Stephen Strange : Who wants to murder trillions.

    Thanos : With all six stones I can simply snap my fingers and it'll all cease to exist. I call that, mercy.

    Dr. Stephen Strange : Then what?

    Thanos : I finally rest, and watch the sunrise on a grateful universe. The hardest choices require the strongest will.

    Dr. Stephen Strange : I think you'll find our will, equal, to yours.

    Thanos : Our?

    Tony Stark : [Slams giant boulder into Thanos]  Piece of cake Quill.

    Peter Quill : Yeah, if your goal was to piss him off!

    [Battle begins] 

  • Thanos : The hardest choices require the strongest will.

    Dr. Stephen Strange : You will find our will equal to your own!

  • Gamora's Mother : Shh. We're gonna be safe

    Young Gamora : [Weapons fire overhead and Gamora screams] 

    Ebony Maw : [Thanos' Chitauri army round up the Zehoborei people]  Choose a side or die. One side a revelation, the other an honour known only to a few.

    Thanos : [to a young Gamora]  What's wrong little one?

    Young Gamora : My mother. Where's my mother?

    Thanos : What's your name?

    Young Gamora : Gamora.

    Thanos : You're quite the fighter Gamora. Come, let me help you.

    [Walks Gamora away from the people being rounded up] 

    Thanos : Look.

    [Pulls out a doube edged switchblade] 

    Thanos : Pretty, isn't is?

    [Balances it on his index finger] 

    Thanos : Perfectly balanced, as all things should be. Too much to one side and the other...

    [Hands it to Gamora] 

    Thanos : Here, you try.

    Ebony Maw : [to one half of the Zehoberei people about to be slaughtered by the Chitauri]  Now go in peace and meet your maker.

    Thanos : [Gamora turns to see what the fuss is about]  Uh-uh, concentrate. There, you got it.

  • Red Skull (Stonekeeper) : Welcome Thanos, son of Alars. Gamora, daughter of Thanos.

    Thanos : You know us?

    Red Skull (Stonekeeper) : It is my curse to know all who journey here.

    Thanos : Where is the Soul Stone?

    Red Skull (Stonekeeper) : You should know it exacts a terrible price.

    Thanos : I am prepared.

    Red Skull (Stonekeeper) : We all think that at first. We are all wrong.

  • Gamora : [to Peter]  You promised. You promised!

    Thanos : [to Gamora]  Oh, daughter. You expect too much from him.

    [to Peter] 

    Thanos : She's asked, hasn't she?

    Thanos : Do it.

    [pushes Gamora forward] 

    Thanos : Do it!

    Peter Quill : [to Gamora]  I told you to go right!

    Gamora : [to Peter]  I love you, more than anything.

    Peter Quill : I love you, too.

  • Thanos : [after a brutal fight with several of the Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers, they manage to cut Thanos' cheek]  All this, just for a drop of blood.

  • Tony Stark : You throw another moon at me, I'm gonna lose it.

    Thanos : Stark!

    Tony Stark : You know me?

    Thanos : You're not the only one cursed with knowledge.

    Tony Stark : My only curse is you.

  • [deleted scene] 

    Thanos : When you left me all those years ago, I allowed it. You haven't been under the impression that you escaped? Daughter, I raised you so much smarter than that.

    Gamora : I am not your daughter! You didn't raise me, you kidnapped me, orphaned me, and imprisoned me! Everything I hate about myself comes from you.

  • Thanos : You have my respect Stark. When I'm done, half of humanity will still be alive. I hope They remember you.

  • Thanos : [Thanos prevents a blow from Doctor Strange]  You're full of tricks, wizard.

  • Thanos : [to Gamora]  You're strong. Me. You're generous. Me. But I never taught you to lie. That's why you're so bad at it.

  • Thanos : Today I lost more than you could know, but now is no time to mourn. Now, is no time at all

  • [Spoiler] 

    [Tony and Peter are trying to get the gauntlet off of Thanos' hand while Mantis is controlling his mind] 

    Peter Quill : Not so strong now, huh? Where's Gamora?

    Thanos : My Gamora...

    Peter Quill : Oh, bullshit! Where is she?

    Mantis : He is in anguish.

    Peter Quill : Good.

    Mantis : He... he mourns.

    Drax : What does this MONSTER have to mourn?

    Nebula : Gamora.

    Peter Quill : [turns to Nebula in disbelief]  What?

    Nebula : He took her to Vormir. He came back with the Soul Stone... and she didn't.

    Tony Stark : Okay, Quill, you gotta cool it right now. You understand? Don't. Don't engage, we almost got this off!

    Peter Quill : Tell me she's lying.

    [Thanos doesn't answer] 

    Peter Quill : ASSHOLE! Tell me you didn't do it!

    Thanos : I... had... to.

    Peter Quill : [choking up]  No, you didn't... No, you didn't.

    [starts punching Thanos] 

    Peter Quill : NO, YOU DIDN'T!

  • [Nebula appears to fight Thanos] 

    Thanos : Well, well.

    Nebula : You should have killed me.

    Thanos : Would have been a waste of parts!

  • Thanos : [to Gamora]  You're strong. Me, the generous... me. But I never taught you to lie. That's why you're so bad at it.

  • Thanos : I know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right... yet to fail, nonetheless.

    Thanos : It's frightening. Turns the legs to jelly. But I ask you, to what end? Dread it, run from it... destiny arrives all the same. And now, it's here. Or should I say... I am.

  • Thanos : [after Scarlet Witch destroys Vision]  I understand, my child. Better than anyone.

    Scarlet Witch : [bitterly]  You could never.

    [Thano bends down and gently strokes her head] 

  • Iron Man : [after subduing Thanos]  Is he under? Don't let up.

    Mantis : Be quick. He is very strong.

    Iron Man : Parker, help. Get over here. She can't hold him much longer. Let's go.

    [they start to pull the Gauntlet off] 

    Spider-Man : We gotta open his fingers to get it off.

    Star-Lord : [flies down in front of Thanos]  I thought you'd be harder to catch. By the way, this was my plan. Not so strong now, huh? Where is Gamora?

    Thanos : [weakly]  M-My Gamora.

    Star-Lord : Oh, bullshit. Where is she?

    Mantis : He is in anguish.

    Star-Lord : Good.

    Mantis : He... he mourns.

    Drax : What does this monster have to mourn?

    Iron Man : [as Quill turns to face Thanos]  Okay, Quill, you gotta cool it right now. You understand? Don't, don't, don't engage. We almost got this off!

    Star-Lord : [to Thanos]  Tell me she's lying. Asshole, tell me you didn't do it!

    Thanos : I had to.

    Star-Lord : No, you didn't. No, you didn't.

    [whips out his blaster and starts punching Thanos] 

    Star-Lord : NO, YOU DIDN'T!

    Iron Man : [lunging onto Star-Lord]  Quill! Hey, stop! Hey, stop, stop!

    Spider-Man : [pulling the Gauntlet free]  It's coming, it's coming, it's coming! I got it! I got it!

    [Thanos opens his and pulls the Gauntlet back on. He then blasts the heroes back. He throws Mantis off his shoulders] 

    Spider-Man : Oh, God.

    [he leaps up and catches Mantis. He uses his spider-legs to cushion their fall] 

  • Doctor Strange : [after Thanos describes the downfall of Titan]  Congratulations, you're a prophet.

    Thanos : I'm a survivor.

    Doctor Strange : Who wants to murder trillions.

    Thanos : With all six stones, I could simply snap my fingers. They would all cease to exist. I call that mercy.

    Doctor Strange : And then what?

    Doctor Strange : I think you'll find our will equal to yours.

    Thanos : Our?

    [Iron Man drops a column on him from above] 

    Iron Man : Piece of cake, Quill.

    Star-Lord : Yeah, if your goal was to piss him off.

  • Spider-Man : [attacking Thanos through a series of portals]  Magic! More magic! Magic with a kick! Magic with a...

    [Thanos grabs him and slams him to the ground] 

    Thanos : Insect!

    [throws him into Doctor Strange] 

  • Thor : [after Loki reveals the Tesseract]  You really are the worst brother.

    Loki : [approaches Thanos]  I assure you, brother, the sun will shine on us again.

    Thanos : [chuckles]  Your optimism is misplaced, Asgardian.

    Loki : Well for one thing, I'm not Asgardian. And for another... we have a Hulk.

    [Hulk charges forward and slams into Thanos while Loki drops the Tesseract and pulls Thor out of the way. Hulk then begins punching Thanos rapidly, then grabs his neck and drives him into the wall. Cull Obsidian starts to step forward, but Ebony Maw stops him] 

    Ebony Maw : Let him have his fun.

    [Thanos grabs Hulk's wrists and peels them away. He then lands a blow to Hulk's neck, causing him to cry out in pain. Hulk tries to strike back, but Thanos blocks his blows. He then delivers a series of powerful punches, dazing Hulk. Thanos lifts Hulk over his head and slams him to the floor. Thor tries to attack Thanos, but Thanos slaps him back. Ebony Maw telekinetically restrains Thor with metal] 

    Heimdall : [lifting his sword]  All-fathers, let the dark magic flow through me one last time.

    [lifts his arm and the power of the Bifrost flows through him. He casts the power around the Hulk, lifting him off the ground and teleporting him away and safe from harm. Thanos approaches Heimdall] 

    Thanos : That was a mistake.

    [plunges a blade through Heimdall's chest, killing him] 

    Thor : NO! You're going to die for that!

    [Ebony Maw telekinetically muffles Thor] 

    Ebony Maw : Shh.

  • Star-Lord : [after Thanos captures Gamora]  Let her go, Grimace!

    Gamora : Peter...

    Star-Lord : I told you to go right.

    Gamora : Now? Really?

    Star-Lord : [to Thanos]  You let her go!

    Thanos : Ah, the boyfriend.

    Star-Lord : Like to think of myself more as a Titan-killing, long-term booty call. Let. Her. Go.

    Gamora : Peter.

    Star-Lord : I'm gonna blow that chin right off your face.

    [Quill hesitates] 

    Gamora : You promised. You promised.

    [he reluctantly aims his blaster at her] 

    Thanos : Oh, daughter. You expect too much from him.

    [turns to Quill] 

    Thanos : She's asked, hasn't she? Do it.

    [He shoves Gamora directly in front of him] 

    Thanos : Do it!

    Star-Lord : [to Gamora]  I told you to go right...

    Gamora : I love you more than anything.

    Star-Lord : I love you too.

    [both of them close their eyes and Quill pulls the trigger, but only bubbles come out, courtesy of the Reality Stone] 

    Thanos : I like you.

    [teleports away with Gamora]
