Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Robert Downey Jr.: Tony Stark, Iron Man
Tony Stark : I love you 3000.
Pepper Potts : We got really lucky.
Tony Stark : Yeah, I know.
Pepper Potts : A lot of people didn't.
Tony Stark : I can't help everybody.
Pepper Potts : It sort of seems like you can.
Tony Stark : Not if I stop. I can put a pin in it right now... and stop.
Pepper Potts : Tony, trying to get you to stop has been one of the few failures of my entire life.
Tony Stark : Everybody wants a happy ending. Right? But it doesn't always roll that way. Maybe this time. I hoping if you play this back, it's in celebration. I hope families are reunited, I hope we get it back and something like a normal version of the planet has been restored, if there ever was such a thing. God, what a world. Universe, now. If you told me ten years ago that we weren't alone, let alone, you know, to this extent, I mean, I wouldn't have been surprised, but come on, the epic forces of dark and light that have come in to play. And for better or worse, that's the reality Morgan's gonna have to find a way to grow up in. So I thought I better record a little greeting, in the case of an untimely death, on my part. I mean, not that death at any time isn't untimely. This time travel thing we're gonna try and pull off tomorrow, it's got me scratching my head about the survivability of it all. Then again that's the hero gig. Part of the journey is the end. What am I even tripping for? Everything's gonna workout exactly the way it's supposed to.
[stands up and walks forward to bend down and look Morgan in the eyes]
Tony Stark : I love you 3000.
Tony Stark : [In hologram message played after death, to daughter Morgan Stark] I love you three thousand.
Thanos : I am... inevitable.
[Thanos snaps his fingers, but nothing happens. He discovers that the gauntlet no longer has the Infinity Stones, and that Stark used his armor's nano-technology to transfer the Stones to his arm]
Tony Stark : And I... am... Iron Man!
[Stark snaps his fingers, and Thanos' army slowly fades into dust]
Tony Stark : [to his daughter] Go to bed, or I'll sell all your toys.
[sending a message to Pepper]
Tony Stark : Is this thing on? Hey, Ms. Potts. If you find this recording, don't post it on social media. It's gonna be a real tearjerker. I don't know if you're ever gonna see these. I don't even know if you're still... Oh, God, I hope so. Today's day 21? No, uh, 22. You know, if it wasn't for the existential terror of steering into the literal void of space, I'd say I'm feeling a little better today. The infection's run its course thanks to the blue meanie back there. Oh, you would love her. Very practical. Only a tiny bit sadistic. So, the fuel cells were cracked during battle and we figured out a way to reverse the iron charge, bought ourselves about 48 hours of flight time. Uh, but it's now dead in the water. 1,000 light years from the nearest 7-11. Oxygen will run out tomorrow morning... and that will be it. I know I said no more surprises, but I gotta say, I was really hoping to pull off one last one. But it looks like... well, you know what it looks like. Don't feel bad about this. I'm mean, actually, if you grovel for a couple weeks... and then move on with enormous guilt.
Tony Stark : I should probably lie down for a minute, rest my eyes. Please know, when I drift off and be like everything lately, I'm fine. I'm totally fine. I dream about you. Because it's always you.
[ends the message]
Steve Rogers : We've been hunting Thanos for three weeks now - through face scans and satellites, so far we've got nothing. Tony, you fought him...
Tony Stark : What are you talking about? I didn't fight him. No, he wiped my face with a planet while the wizard gave away the store. That's what happened, there's no fight...
Steve Rogers : Okay, did he give you any clues, any coordinates?
Tony Stark : I saw this coming a few years back, I had a vision, but I didn't want to believe it. Now it's true.
Steve Rogers : Tony, I'm going to need you to focus...
Tony Stark : I *needed* you, as in past tense. That trumps what you need. It's too late, buddy. Sorry. You know what I need? You know what I need? I need a shave. I don't believe I ever remember telling you this...
James Rhodes : Tony, Tony...
Tony Stark : What we needed was a suit of armor around the world! Remember that? Whether it impacted our precious freedoms or not, that's what we needed!
Steve Rogers : Well, that didn't work out, did it?
Tony Stark : I said we'd lose. You said, "we'll do that together too." Guess what, Cap? We *lost,* and you weren't there. But that's what we do, right? Our best work after the fact? We're the *Avengers?* Not the Prevengers, right?
James Rhodes : Okay, you made your point, Just sit down, okay?
Tony Stark : No, no, here's my biggest point, he said...
James Rhodes : Just sit down, okay? We need you, you're new blood.
Tony Stark : Bunch of tired old wheels! I got nothin' for you, Cap! I've got no coordinates, no clues, no strategies, no options! Zero, zip, nada. No trust - liar.
[rips off his reacter]
Tony Stark : Here, take this. You'll find him, if you put that on. You hide -
[collapses mid sentence]
Thor : Look, sitting there staring at that going is not going to bring everybody back. I'm the strongest avenger, okay, so this responsibility falls upon me. It's my duty.
Tony Stark : No, no, listen...
Thor : Let me! Let me do it. Let me do something good, something right.
Tony Stark : No, it's not just the fact that that glove's channeling enough energy to char a continent. I'm telling you, you're in no condition to.
[in 2012, Thor, Tony, Loki, and others are in an elevator when Hulk tries to enter]
Thor : Whoa! Whoa, whoa, whoa!
Tony Stark : What are you thinking? Maximum occupancy has been reached.
Thor : Take the stairs.
Tony Stark : Yes.
[Hulk starts raging as the doors are closing]
Tony Stark : Stop, stop!
[Hulk punches the elevator door]
Hulk : [muttering to himself] Take the stairs. Hate the stairs!
Tony Stark : [to Steve Rogers] Why the long face? Let me guess: he turned into a baby?
Tony Stark : Quantum fluctuation messes with the Planck's scale, which then triggers the Doidge proposition. Can we agree on that? In layman's terms, it means, you are not coming home.
Scott Lang : I did.
Tony Stark : No, you accidentally survived. It's an billion-in-one cosmic fluke. Now you want to pull out... what you call it?
Scott Lang : A time heist.
Tony Stark : Yeah, a time heist. Of course. Why didn't I think of this before? Oh, because it's laughable, 'cos it's pipe dream.
Tony Stark : The stones are in the past. We could go back, we could get them.
Natasha Romanoff : We can snap our own fingers. We can bring everybody back.
Tony Stark : Or screw up worse than he already has, right.
Steve Rogers : I don't believe we would.
Tony Stark : Got to say that sometimes you miss that giddy optimism. However, high hopes won't help, if there is no logical, tangible way for me to safely execute the said, time heist. I believe the most likely outcome would be our collective demise.
Scott Lang : Not if we strictly follow the rules of time travel. I mean, no talking to our past-selves, no betting on sporting events...
Tony Stark : I'm going to stop you right there, Scott. Are you seriously telling me that your plan to save the universe is based on, 'back to future?'
Scott Lang : No.
Tony Stark : Good, you got me worried there. 'cos that would be horse shit. That's not how Quantum Physics works.
Natasha Romanoff : Tony, we have to take a stand.
Tony Stark : We did stand and yet here we are.
Scott Lang : I know you got a lot on the line. Your wife, your daughter. But I lost someone very important to me. A lot of people dead and now, now... we have a chance to bring her back, bring everyone back and you're telling me...
Tony Stark : ...leave it. I can't.
Tony Stark : [walking past a drunk Thor] Move aside, there, Lebowski.
Tony Stark : [discussing the "Time Heist"] I believe the most likely outcome will be our collective demise.
Scott Lang : Not if we strictly follow the rules of time travel. That means no talking to our past selves, no betting on sporting events...
Tony Stark : I'm gonna stop you right there, Scott. Are you seriously telling me that your plan to save the universe is based on "Back to the Future?"
Scott Lang : [chuckles] ... No.
Steve Rogers : [Tony opens his car trunk, takes out Captain America's shield and gives it to Steve] Tony, I don't know...
Tony Stark : Why? He made it for you. Plus, honestly I have to get it out the garage before Morgan takes it sledding.
Steve Rogers : [accepts the shield and puts it on] Thank you, Tony.
Tony Stark : Will you keep that a little quiet? Didn't bring one for the whole team.
Tony Stark : [to Thanos] Yeah, we're all loads of stubborn.
Tony Stark : [Sits down in disbelief] Shit!
Morgan Stark : [Mimics Tony] Shit.
Tony Stark : [Gestures at Morgan to shush] What are you doing up, little miss?
Morgan Stark : [Repeats with a smile on her face] Shit.
Tony Stark : No, we don't say that. Only mommy says that. She coined it, it belongs to her.
Morgan Stark : Why are you up?
Tony Stark : Cause I got very important sh*t going on here, what do you think? No. I got, I got something on my mind.
Tony Stark : I got, I got something on my mind.
Morgan Stark : Was it juice pops?
Tony Stark : Sure it was. That's extortion, that's the word. What kind do you want? Great minds think alike. Juice pops, exactly was on my mind.
Steve Rogers : Almost everyone in this room has had an encounter with at least one of the six Infinity Stones.
Tony Stark : Or, substitute the word encounter with 'damn near been killed by' one of the six Infinity Stones.
Scott Lang : I haven't. I don't even know what the hell you're all taking about now.
Bruce Banner : Regardless, we only have enough Pym Particles for one round trip each, and these stones have been in a lot of different places throughout history.
Tony Stark : Our history. So, not a lot of convenient spots to drop in.
Clint Barton : Which means we've got to pick our targets.
Tony Stark : Correct.
[Steve Rogers, Tony Stark and Scott Lang find out about find the six infinity stones]
Steve Rogers : Well, what are we gonna do now?
Tony Stark : You know what, give me a break, Steve. I just got hit in the head with a Hulk.
Scott Lang : You said that we had one shot. This! This was our shot. We shot it, it's shot! Six stones or nothing! Six stones or nothing.
Tony Stark : You're repeating yourself, you know that? You're repeating yourself.
Scott Lang : You're repeating yourself! You're repeating yourself!
Steve Rogers : So, let's start with the Aether. Thor, what do you know?
Natasha Romanoff : Is he asleep?
James Rhodes : No. I'm pretty sure he's dead.
Thor : Ah, where to start? Um, the Aether. Firstly, not a stone. Someone called it a stone before... it's more of an angry sludge sort of thing so, someone's gonna need to amend that and stop saying that. Here's an interesting story though about the Aether: my grandfather, many years ago, had to hide the stone from the Dark Elves. Scary beings. So Jane, actually, actually, actually Jane is a, is a old flame of mine. Uh, you know she, she stuck her hand inside a rock this one time and, and then the Aether stuck itself inside her, and she became very, very sick and so I had to take her to Asgard which is where I'm from, and we had to try and fix her. We were dating at the time. See I got to, I got to introduce her to my mother who's dead. And um, oh you know and Jane and I aren't even dating anymore so...
[Hulk gestures for Stark to cut off Thor]
Thor : these things happen though you know. Nothing lasts forever. The only thing that...
Tony Stark : Why don't you come and sit down?
Thor : I'm not done. The only thing that is permanent in life is impermanence.
Tony Stark : Eggs? Breakfast?
Thor : No. I'd like a Bloody Mary.
Steve Rogers : Alright. We have a plan. Six stones, three teams, one shot. Five years ago we lost. All of us. We lost friends. We lost family. We a part of ourselves. Today we have a chance to take it all back. You know your teams, you know your missions. Get the stones, get them back. One round trip each, no mistakes, no do overs. Most of us going somewhere we know, that doesn't mean we should know what to expect. Be careful. Lookout for each other. This is the fight of our lives and we're gonna win. Whatever it takes. Good luck.
Rocket : He's pretty good at that.
Scott Lang : Right.
Tony Stark : Ok, you heard the man. Stroke those keys, jolly green.
Bruce Banner : Tractors engaged.
Tony Stark : [hugging 1970 Howard Stark] Thank you, for everything... you've done for this country.
Thanos : You could not live with your own failure. Where did that bring you? Back to me. I thought by eliminating half of life, the other half would thrive, but you have shown me... that's impossible. As long as there are those that remember what was, there will always be those, that are unable to accept what can be. They will resist.
Tony Stark : Yeah, we're all loads of stubborn.
Thanos : I'm thankful. Because now I know what I must do. I will shred this universe down to it's last atom and then, with the stones you've collected for me, create a new one. It is not what is lost but only what it is been given... a grateful universe.
Steve Rogers : Born out of blood.
Thanos : They'll never know. Because you won't be alive to tell them.
Tony Stark : [to Steve, handing him back his shield] You lose this again, I'm keeping it.
Tony Stark : What's he been doing?
Thor : Absolutely nothing.
Steve Rogers : Where are the stones?
Tony Stark : Somewhere under all this. All I know is he doesn't have them.
Steve Rogers : So we keep it that way.
Thor : You know it's a trap right?
Tony Stark : Yeah, I don't much care.
Thor : Good. Just as long as we're all in agreement
[Summons Mjolnir and Stormbreaker]
Thor : Let's kill him properly this time.
