Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Chris Evans: Steve Rogers, Captain America
Steve Rogers : Avengers! Assemble.
Steve Rogers : It is America's ass.
Steve Rogers : Hail Hydra.
Steve Rogers : You know, I saw a pod of whales when I was coming in, over the bridge.
Natasha Romanoff : In the Hudson?
Steve Rogers : Fewer ships, cleaner water...
Natasha Romanoff : You know, if you're about to tell me to look on the bright side - I'm about to hit you in the head with a peanut butter sandwich.
Steve Rogers : Sorry, force of habit.
Steve Rogers : [after accidentally running into his past self] You've got to be shitting me.
Steve Rogers : We lost. All of us. We lost friends. We lost family. We lost a part of ourselves. This is the fight of our lives.
Bruce Banner : We'd be going in shorthanded, you know?
James Rhodes : Look, he's still got the Stones, so...
Carol Danvers : So, let's get them. Use them to bring everyone back.
Bruce Banner : Just like that?
Steve Rogers : Yeah, just like that.
Natasha Romanoff : Even if there's a small chance that we can undo this, I mean, we owe it to everyone who is not in this room, to try.
Bruce Banner : If we do this, how do we know it's going to end any differently than it did before?
Carol Danvers : Because before, you didn't have me.
James Rhodes : Hey, new girl? Everybody in this room is about that superhero life. And, if you don't mind my asking, where the hell have you been all this time?
Carol Danvers : There are a lot of other planets in the universe, and, unfortunately, they didn't have you guys.
Thor : [Stands up and walks to Danvers. They meet eye-to-eye. Thor summons Stormbreaker, which whizzes right past Danvers' head. She doesn't even flinch, and then smiles] I like this one.
Steve Rogers : Let's go get this son of a bitch.
Clint Barton : We can't bring her back.
Thor : I'm sorry, no offence, but you're a very earthly being, okay, and we're talking about space magic. It can seem very difficult...
Clint Barton : Yeah, look, I know I'm way outside my pay rate here, but she's still dead, isn't she? It *can't* be undone! Or, at least that's what the red floating guy had to say! Maybe you ought to go talk to him! Okay, go grab your hammer, and you find and talk to him! It was supposed to be me. Sacrificed her life for that goddamned stone, she put her life on it.
Bruce Banner : She's not coming back. We have to make it worth it. We have to.
Steve Rogers : We will
Steve Rogers : Some people move on. But not us... Not us.
[Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanoff heard that Ant-Man is calling]
Scott Lang : Hi! Uh, is anyone home? This is Scott Lang. We met a few years ago? At the airport? In Germany? I got really big.
Steve Rogers : Is this an old message?
Scott Lang : Ant-Man? Ant-Man I know you know wh - I know you know that!
Natasha Romanoff : That's the front gate.
Scott Lang : That's me. Can you buzz me in?
Steve Rogers : It's not about how much we've lost. It's about how much we have left.
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]
Steve Rogers : [to Natasha] I keep telling everybody they should move on. Some do, but not us.
Steve Rogers : [To Natasha ] I'd offer to make you dinner, but you look miserable enough already.
Sam Wilson : [after Cap travels through time to return the Infinity Stones, he reappears on a bench nearby, now an elderly man] Cap?
Steve Rogers : Hi, Sam.
Sam Wilson : So did something go wrong, or did something go right?
Steve Rogers : Well, after I put the Stones back, I thought... maybe I'll try some of that life that Tony was telling me to get.
Sam Wilson : How'd that work out for you?
Steve Rogers : It was beautiful.
Sam Wilson : I'm happy for you. Truly.
Steve Rogers : Thank you.
Sam Wilson : Only thing bumming me out is the fact that I have to live in a world without Captain America.
Steve Rogers : Oh, that reminds me...
[revels a new Captain America shield]
Steve Rogers : Try it on.
[With Bucky nodding his approval, Sam picks up the shield and holds it like Cap would]
Steve Rogers : How does it feel?
Sam Wilson : Like it's someone else's.
Steve Rogers : It isn't.
Sam Wilson : Thank you. I'll do my best.
Steve Rogers : [Shakes Sam's hand] That's why it's yours.
Sam Wilson : [notices wedding band on Cap's ring finger] You wanna tell me about her?
Steve Rogers : [smiles] No. No, I don't think I will.
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.
Steve Rogers : Five years ago, we lost. All of us. We lost friends. We lost family. We lost 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 are going somewhere we know, that doesn't mean we should know what to expect. Be careful. Look out for each other. This is the fight of our lives. And we're going to win. Whatever it takes. Good luck.
Steve Rogers : On my way down to coordinate search-and-rescue.
[Loki shapeshifts into Captain America]
Loki : [impersonating Steve] "On my way down to coordinate search-and-rescue!"
[Loki reverts to his true form]
Loki : I mean, honestly, how do you even...
[Thor puts a gag in Loki's mouth, silencing him]
Thor : Shut. Up.
[Scott is about to re-enter the Quantum Realm]
Steve Rogers : Breakers are set. Emergency generators are on stand-by.
Bruce Banner : Good, because if we blow the grid, I don't wanna lose...
[pointing to Scott]
Bruce Banner : Tiny, here, in the 1950s.
Scott Lang : [nervous] Excuse me?
Natasha Romanoff : He's kidding. You can't say things like that.
Bruce Banner : It... it was just... a bad joke.
Natasha Romanoff : [whispers to Bruce] You were kidding, right?
Bruce Banner : [under his breath] I have no idea. We're talking about time travel here. Either, all of it is a joke or none of it is.
[to Scott, giving a thumbs-up ]
Bruce Banner : We're good!
[Carol and Bruce, wearing the Hulkbuster armor, restrain Thanos, and Thor chops off his left arm with Stormbreaker. As Steve, Rhodey and Natasha enter, Rocket turns the gauntlet over to find the Infinity Stones missing]
Rocket : Oh no...
Steve Rogers : [to Thanos] Where are they?
Carol Danvers : Answer the question.
Thanos : The universe required correction. After that, the stones served no purpose beyond temptation.
Bruce Banner : YOU MURDERED TRILLIONS!
[Banner shoves Thanos to the ground]
Thanos : You should be grateful.
Natasha Romanoff : Where are the Stones?
Thanos : Gone. Reduced to atoms.
Bruce Banner : You used them two days ago!
Thanos : I used the Stones to destroy the Stones. It nearly killed me, but the work is done. It always will be. I am... inevitable.
James Rhodes : We have to tear this place apart. He has to be lying.
Nebula : My father is many things. A liar is not one of them.
Thanos : Ah. Thank you, daughter. Perhaps I treated you too harshly...
[Thor brings Stormbreaker down, decapitating Thanos]
Rocket : What did you do?
Thor : I went for the head.
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 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.
[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 : OK, so the how works. Now we gotta figure out the when and the where. 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" for "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 talking about.
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 just drop in.
Clint Barton : Which means we have to pick our targets.
Tony Stark : Correct.
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
[gestures toward Rogers]
Thor : . It's more of an angry sludge sort of thing so, someone's gonna need to amend that and stop saying that.
[Rhodey and Barton trade looks]
Thor : 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.
[Stark looks on curiously]
Thor : Uh, you know she, she stuck her hand inside a rock this one time and, and then the Aether stuck itself inside her,
[Rogers looks on with a confused look]
Thor : 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
Thor : 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 : [Interrupts Thor] Why don't you come and sit down?
Thor : [Rhodey and Barton trade concerned looks] 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.
Rocket : Quill said he stole the Power Stone from Morag.
Bruce Banner : Is that a person?
Rocket : Morag's a planet! Quill was a planet
Scott Lang : Like a planet? Like in outer space?
Rocket : Oh, look. It's like a little puppy, all happy and everything. Do you wanna go to space? You wanna go to space, puppy? I'll take you to space.
Nebula : Thanos found the Soul Stone on Vormir.
Natasha Romanoff : What is Vormir?
Nebula : The dominion of death, at the very center of celestial existence. it's where... Thanos murdered my sister.
Scott Lang : [Whispers] Not it.
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 : Do we know if she had family.
Steve Rogers : Yeah, us.
Thor : What?
Tony Stark : Huh?
Thor : What are you do, what are you do - ?
Tony Stark : Just asking a question.
Thor : Yeah. No, you're acting like she's dead. Why are we acting like she dead? We have the stones, right? As long as we have the stones Cap, we can bring her back. Isn't that right? So stop this sh*t, we're the Avengers. Get it together.
Clint Barton : Can't get her back.
Thor : What's, what's your-What?
Clint Barton : It can't be undone. Can't.
Thor : [Scoffs] I'm sorry, no offence but you're a very Earthy being. Ok? We're talking about space magic and can't seems very different, don't you think.
Clint Barton : Yeah look, I know that I'm way outside my-my pay grade here. But she still isn't here, isn't she
Thor : No, that's my point.
Clint Barton : It can't be undone. Or that's at least what the red floating guy had to say. Maybe you wanna go talk to him, ok? Go grab your hammer, and you go fly and you talk to him! It's supposed to be me. She sacrificed her life for that damn stone. She bet her life on it.
Bruce Banner : She's not coming back. We have to make it worth it. We have to.
Steve Rogers : We will.
Natasha Romanoff : Have any of you guys ever studied Quantum Physics?
Natasha Romanoff : Only in conversation.
Scott Lang : Alright, five years ago, right before Thanos, I was in a place called Quantum Realm. The Quantum Realm is like its own microscopic universe. To get in there, you have to be incredibly small. Hope, she is my ah... she was my ah... she was supposed to pull me out and then Thanos happened and I got stuck in there.
Natasha Romanoff : Sorry, that must have been a very long five years.
Scott Lang : It wasn't. For me, it was five hours. See, the rules of Quantum realm aren't like they are up here. Everything is unpredictable. Is that anybody's sandwich? I am starving.
Steve Rogers : Scott, what are you talking about?
Scott Lang : What I am saing is... Time works differently in the Quantum Realm. I can't stop thinking about what if we could control the chaos and we could navigate it. What if there was a way we could enter the Quantum realm at a certain point in time, but then exit the Quantum realm at another point in time, like before Thanos.
Steve Rogers : Wait, are you talking about a time machine?
Scott Lang : No, of course not, not a time machine. This is more like a... yeah, like a time machine. I know it's crazy, it's crazy but I can't stop thinking about it. There is got to be some... it's crazy.
Natasha Romanoff : Scott, I get emails from so nothing sounds crazy anymore.
Scott Lang : So, who do we talk to about this?
Carol Danvers : I'll head down for recon.
Natasha Romanoff : [Notices Steve staring at picture of Peggy] This is gonna work Steve.
Steve Rogers : I know it will, cause I don't know what I'm gonna do if it doesn't.
Carol Danvers : No satellites, no ships, no armies, no ground defenses of any kind. It's just him.
Nebula : And that's enough.
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 : 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.
Steve Rogers : [Captain America, Iron Man, Ant Man, and Professor Hulk all arrive in 2012 New York during the events of the first film] Okay, we all know our missions. Stay low, keep your eye on the ball.
Steve Rogers : [2012 savage Hulk rampages down the street smashing cars as he goes. The others all look at Professor Hulk, who hold his head in his hand out of embarrassment] Might want to smash a few things along the way.
Bruce Banner : I think it's gratuitous, but, whatever.
[Rips off his shirt and makes a half-hearted effort to smash things]
