Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Scarlett Johansson: Natasha Romanoff, Black Widow
Natasha Romanoff : If we don't get that stone, billions of people stay dead.
Clint Barton : Then I guess we both know who it's got to be.
Natasha Romanoff : I guess we do.
Clint Barton : I'm starting to think we mean different people here, Natasha.
Natasha Romanoff : For the last five years I've been trying to do one thing, get to right here. That's all it's been about. Bringing everybody back.
Clint Barton : Oh, don't you get all decent on me now.
Natasha Romanoff : What, you think I want to do it? I'm trying to save *your* life, you idiot.
Clint Barton : Yeah, well, I don't want you to, how's that? Natasha, you know what I've done. You know what I've become.
Natasha Romanoff : Well, I don't judge people on their worst mistakes.
Clint Barton : Maybe you should.
Natasha Romanoff : You didn't.
Clint Barton : You're a pain in my ass, you know that?
[they lean their heads together affectionately]
Clint Barton : Okay. You win.
Clint Barton : [he suddenly throws her down] Tell my family I love them.
Natasha Romanoff : [she pushes him off and tasers him] Tell them yourself.
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.
Clint Barton : You shouldn't be here.
Natasha Romanoff : Neither should you.
Clint Barton : I've got a job to do.
Natasha Romanoff : Is that what you're calling this? Killing all these people isn't going to bring your family back.
Natasha Romanoff : We found something. A chance - maybe...
Clint Barton : [voice breaking] Don't.
Natasha Romanoff : Don't what?
Clint Barton : Don't give me hope.
Natasha Romanoff : I'm sorry I couldn't give it to you sooner.
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.
Natasha Romanoff : Where have you been?
James Rhodes : Mexico. The Federales found a room full of bodies. Looks like a bunch of cartel guys - never even had a chance to get their guns out.
Natasha Romanoff : It's probably a rival gang.
James Rhodes : Except that it isn't. It's definitely Barton. What he's done here, what he's been doing, for the last few years - if you'd seen what he's left - I gotta tell you, there's a part of me that doesn't even want to find him.
Natasha Romanoff : Will you find where he goes next?
James Rhodes : Nat...
Natasha Romanoff : Please?
[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?
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.
Natasha Romanoff : Thanos did what exactly he said he was gonna do. He wiped out 50% of all living creatures.
[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.
Natasha Romanoff : [Before going for Time heist] See you in a minute.
Natasha Romanoff : Even if there's a... small chance, we owe this to everyone who's not in this room to try.
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.
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.
Natasha Romanoff : See you in a minute.
