Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Karen Gillan: Nebula
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?
[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.
Nebula : Thanos spent a long time trying to perfect me. When he worked he talked about his great plan. He even disassembled I wanted to please him. I'd ask "where would we go once this plan was complete?" His answer was always the same... "To the garden."
James Rhodes : That's cute. Thanos has a retirement plan.
James Rhodes : Whoa, whoa, whoa. This is the part where all the spikes come out with skeletons on the end of them and everything.
Nebula : What are you talking about?
James Rhodes : When you break into a place called "the temple of the Power Stone" there's gonna be a bunch of booby traps
[Nebula starts walking]
James Rhodes : Okay, alright, go ahead.
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.
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.
Drax : [Thor and Quill are arguing about leadership] You should fight one another for the honor of leadership.
Nebula : Sounds fair.
Peter Quill : It's not necessary. Okay?
Thor : It's not.
Rocket : I got some blasters unless you guys wanna use knives.
Mantis : Oh, yes. Please use knives.
Drax : Yeah, knives.
Groot : I am Groot.
Thor : [Thor and Quill both laugh] Not necessary. There should be no knifing one another. Everybody knows who's in charge.
Peter Quill : [after a few seconds of awkward silence] Me, right?
Thor : Yes, you. Of course! Of course.
Thor : Of course.
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?
