Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Paul Rudd: Scott Lang, Ant-Man
Rocket : Quill said he stole the Power Stone from Morag.
Bruce Banner : Is that a person?
Rocket : Morag's a planet, Quill was a person.
Scott Lang : A planet? Like in outer space?
Rocket : Oh, look, it's like a little puppy, all happy and everything. Do you want to go to space, puppy? I'll take you to outer space!
James Rhodes : If we can do this; you know, go back in time; why don't we just find baby Thanos, you know, and...
Hulk : Okay, first of all, that's horrible.
James Rhodes : It's Thanos!
Hulk : And secondly, time doesn't work that way. Changing the past doesn't change the future.
Scott Lang : We go back, we get the stones before Thanos gets them, Thanos doesn't have the stones! Problem solved!
Clint Barton : Bingo
Nebula : That's not how it works!
Clint Barton : Well that's what I heard.
Hulk : Who told you that?
James Rhodes : Star Trek, Terminator, Timecop, Time After Time...
Scott Lang : Quantum Leap?
James Rhodes : A Wrinkle in Time, Somewhere in Time...
Scott Lang : Hot Tub Time Machine?
James Rhodes : Hot Tub Time Machine, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, basically any movie that deals with time travel!
Scott Lang : Die Hard? No, that's not one...
James Rhodes : Look, this is known!
Hulk : I don't know why everyone believes that, but that isn't true. Think about it. If you go into the past, that past becomes your future, and your former present becomes the past, which can't now be changed by your new future!
Nebula : Exactly!
Scott Lang : So, Back to the Future's a bunch of bullshit?
[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.
[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!
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 : 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 : 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.
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.
Scott Lang : Guys... I think it worked.
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?
Scott Lang : [pointing to the Guardian's spaceship after it just landed] It's awesome.
Nebula : [talking to James Rhodes on radio] Rhodey, careful on re-entry. There's an idiot on the landing zone.
Scott Lang : [Rhodes suddenly lands very closely to Scott with a loud thump, shocking him] Oh, God!
James Rhodes : What's up, regular-sized man?
Scott Lang : [to a boy on a bike] Hey kid, what the hell happened here?
