Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Chris Evans: Steve Rogers, Captain America
Steve Rogers : Avengers! Assemble.
Steve Rogers : Hail Hydra.
Steve Rogers : [after accidentally running into his past self] You've got to be shitting me.
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.
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.
Steve Rogers : Some people move on. But not us... Not us.
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 and Natasha Romanoff hear the Ant-Man 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 : 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.
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 reactor]
Tony Stark : Here, take this. You'll find him, if you put that on. You hide -
[collapses mid sentence]
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 : [to Natasha] I keep telling everybody they should move on. Some do, but not us.
[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!
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 : [To Natasha] I'd offer to make you dinner, but you look miserable enough already.
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!
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. And 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 : Yep, we're all kinds of stubborn.
Thanos : I'm thankful. Because now I know what I must do. I will shred this universe down to its last atom. And then with the stones you've collected for me create a new one teeming with life that knows not what it has lost but only what it has been given. A grateful universe.
Steve Rogers : Born out of blood.
Thanos : They'll never know it. Because you won't be alive to tell them.
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.
Steve Rogers : 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.
[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.
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 : 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.
Spider-Man : [being overwhelmed by Outriders] I got this. I got this. Okay, I don't got this. Help, somebody help!
Captain America : Hey, Queens. Heads up.
[throws Mjolnir toward him. Spider-Man attaches a web-line to it as it passes over. Mjolnir carries him above the battlefield, but a blast from Thanos's ship severs the line, causing him to fall, but Pepper, in her suit, catches him]
Pepper Potts : Hang on. I got you, kid.
[throws him upward where he lands on Valkyrie's steed]
Spider-Man : [to Valkyrie] Hey, nice to meet yo- OH, MY GOD!
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.
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]
Steve Rogers : [Rogers looks at his past self, who is lying face-down, unconscious] He's right. That IS America's ass.
Steve Rogers : [Sam encounters an elderly Steve Rogers sitting on a park bench] 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 Tony was telling me to get.
Sam Wilson : How'd that work out for you?
Steve Rogers : [smiles] 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...
[reaches under the bench and takes out his old Captain America shield]
Steve Rogers : Try it on.
[Sam stares a few moments in stunned silence, then slowly picks up the shield and puts it on]
Steve Rogers : How's it feel?
Sam Wilson : Like it's someone else's.
Steve Rogers : It isn't.
Sam Wilson : [deeply moved] Thank you. I'll do my best.
Steve Rogers : That's why it's yours.
Grieving Man : So I, uh... Went on a date the other day. First time in five years, you know? Sit there, dinner... I didn't know what to talk about.
Steve Rogers : What did you talk about?
Grieving Man : Same old crap, you know? How things have changed, and... my job, his job... How much we miss the Mets. Then things get quiet... He cried as they were serving the salads.
Steve Rogers : How about you?
Grieving Man : I cried... just before dessert. But I'm seeing him tomorrow, so...
Steve Rogers : That's great. You did the hardest part. You took the jump, you didn't know where you were gonna come down. And that's it. That's those little brave baby steps you gotta take. To try and become whole again. To try and find purpose. I went in the ice in '45 right after I met the love of my life. Woke up 70 years later. You got to move on. Got to move on. The world is in our hands. It's left to us guys, and we have to do something with it. Otherwise... Thanos should have killed all of us.
Hawkeye : [running with the gauntlet] Cap, what do you want me to do with this damn thing?
Captain America : Get those stones as far away as possible!
Bruce Banner : No! We need to get them back where they came from.
Iron Man : No way to get them back. Thanos destroyed the Quantum Tunnel.
Ant-Man : Hold on.
[shrinks back to normal]
Ant-Man : That wasn't our only time machine.
[sounds the horn of his van]
Captain America : Anyone see an ugly, brown van out there?
Valkyrie : Yes, but you're not gonna like where it's parked.
Iron Man : Scott, how long you need to get that thing working?
Ant-Man : [as Wasp joins him] Uh, maybe ten minutes.
Captain America : Get it started. We'll get the stones to you!
The Wasp : We're on it, Cap.
[she and Scott share a smile before shrinking and flying off]
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?
Steve Rogers : [smiles] No. No, I don't think I will.
Thanos : [describing his new plan] I will shred this universe down to its last atom and then, with the stones you've collected for me, create a new one teeming with life that knows not what it has lost, but only what it has been given. A grateful universe.
Captain America : Born out of blood.
Thanos : They'll never know it. Because you won't be alive to tell them.
[Thor, Iron Man, and Cap attack Thanos as one]
Doctor Strange : [after arriving with reinforcements] Is that everyone?
Wong : What, you wanted more?
[a giant Ant-Man bursts through the rubble carrying Hulk, Rocket, and War Machine. The forces of the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Wakandan Army, Asgardians, and Ravagers stand united, ready to face Thanos and his army]
Captain America : Avengers...
Captain America : ... Assemble.
[the army charges as one toward Thanos's forces. Thanos raises his double edged sword and his army charges forward too. Both armies charge fearlessly toward one another, colliding in a battle for the ages]
Tony Stark : [after returning to Earth] I couldn't stop him.
Steve Rogers : Neither could I.
Tony Stark : I lost the kid.
Steve Rogers : Tony, *we* lost.
Tony Stark : Is, uh-?
[Pepper walks in front of him]
Tony Stark : Oh, good.
Pepper Potts : Oh, my god.
[she hugs him]
Pepper Potts : Oh, my god.
Tony Stark : [kisses her] It's alright.
Captain America : [after Captain Marvel destroys Thanos's ship] Danvers, we need an assist here.
[Captain Marvel flies down to where Spider-Man is lying, still holding the Gauntlet]
Spider-Man : Hi, I'm Peter Parker.
Captain Marvel : Hey, Peter Parker. You got something for me?
Spider-Man : [sees Thanos's forces approaching] I don't know how you're gonna get it through all that.
Scarlet Witch : [lands near him] Don't worry.
Okoye : [jumps down] She's got help.
[Pepper, Mantis, Shuri, Wasp, Gamora, and Nebula all join them as they march forward, intending to deliver the Gauntlet to the van]
Natasha Romanoff : [after Tony's refusal to help] Well, he's scared.
Steve Rogers : He's not wrong.
Scott Lang : Yeah, but, I mean, what are... what are... what are we gonna do? We need him. What, are we gonna stop?
Steve Rogers : No, I wanna do it right. We're gonna need a really big brain.
Scott Lang : Bigger than his?
Morgan Stark : Mommy told me to come and save you.
Tony Stark : Good job. I'm saved.
[to Scott and the others]
Tony Stark : I wish you were coming here to ask me something else. Anything else. I'm honestly happy to see you guys. I just... oh, and look, the table's set for six.
Steve Rogers : Tony. I get it. And I'm happy for you. I really am. But this is a second chance.
Tony Stark : I got my second chance right here, Cap. Can't roll the dice on it. If you don't talk shop, you can stay for lunch.
Steve Rogers : What are you doing here?
Tony Stark : It's the EPR Paradox. Instead of pushing Lang through time, you might've wound up pushing time through Lang. It's tricky, dangerous. Somebody could have cautioned you against it.
Steve Rogers : You did.
Tony Stark : Oh, did I? Well, thank God I'm here.
Steve Rogers : Are there any other options with the Tesseract?
Scott Lang : No, no, no, there's no other options. There's no do-overs. We're not going anywhere else. We have one particle left. Each. That's it. All right? We use that... bye-bye, you're not going home.
Steve Rogers : Yeah, well, if we don't try... then no one else is going home, either.
Tony Stark : [getting an idea] I got it. There's another way to re-take the Tesseract and acquire new particles. Little stroll down memory lane. Military installation, Garden State.
Steve Rogers : [getting it] When were they both there?
Tony Stark : They were there at a time... I have a vaguely exact idea.
Steve Rogers : How vague?
Scott Lang : What are you talking about? What are we... where are we going?
Tony Stark : I know for a fact they were there.
Scott Lang : Who's "they"? What are we doing?
Tony Stark : And I know how I know.
Scott Lang : Guys, what's the... what is it?
Steve Rogers : Well, it looks like we're improvising.
Tony Stark : Great.
Scott Lang : What are we improvising?
