Thor: Oh, yes. Promptly.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Great. Allow me to help you.

[after credits][Pangborn senses someone in his workshop] Jonathan Pangborn: Can I help you?
Baron Mordo: They carried you into Kamar-Taj on a stretcher. Look at you now, Pangborn.
Jonathan Pangborn: Mordo. So what can I do for you, man?
Baron Mordo: I've been away for many months now and I've had a revelation. The true purpose of a sorcerer is to twist things out of their proper shape. Stealing power. Perverting nature. Like you.
Jonathan Pangborn: I've stolen nothing. This is my power. Mine.
Baron Mordo: Power has a purpose. [Pangborn picks up a crowbar and tries to attack Mordo, who strips him of his powers and restores his paralysis]
Jonathan Pangborn: Why are you doing this?
Baron Mordo: Because I see, at long last, what's wrong with the world. Too many sorcerers.

[Strange is experimenting with time manipulation using the Eye of Agamotto] Baron Mordo: [bursting in]Stop! Tampering with continuum probabilities is forbidden!
Dr. Stephen Strange: I-I-I was just doing exactly what it said in the book!
Wong: And what did the book say about the dangers of performing that ritual?
Dr. Stephen Strange: I don't know, I hadn't gotten to that part yet.
Baron Mordo: Temporal manipulations can create branches in time. Unstable dimensional openings. Spatial paradoxes! Time loops! You wanna get stuck reliving the same moment over and over forever or never having existed at all?
Dr. Stephen Strange: They really should put the warnings before this spell.

Dr. Stephen Strange: Wong. Just Wong? Like Adele? Or Aristotle. Drake. Bono... Eminem.

[from trailer] The Ancient One: [to Dr Strange]You're a man looking at the world through a keyhole. You've spent your life trying to widen it. Your work saved the lives of thousands. What if I told you that reality is one of many?

Movie: Doctor Strange
Wong: While heroes like the Avengers protect the world from physical dangers, we sorcerers safeguard it against more mystical threats.

Movie: Doctor Strange
The Ancient One: You're a man looking at the world through a keyhole. You've spent your whole life trying to widen that keyhole... to see more, to know more. And now, on hearing that it can be widened, in ways you can't imagine, you reject the possibility.
Dr. Stephen Strange: No, I reject it because I do not believe in fairy tales about chakras or energy or the power of belief. There is *no* such thing as spirit! We are made of matter and nothing more. You're just another tiny, momentary speck within an indifferent universe.

Movie: Doctor Strange
The Ancient One: [as Doctor Strange is being moved through various dimemsions of the Multiverse]You think you know how the world works? You think that this material universe is all there is? What is real? What mysteries lie beyond the reach of your senses? At the root of existence, mind and matter meet. Thoughts shape reality. This universe is only one of an infinite number. Worlds without end. Some benevolent and life giving. Others filled with malice and hunger. Dark places where powers older than time lie ravenous... and waiting. Who are you in this vast multiverse, Mr. Strange?

Dr. Stephen Strange: What did you just do to me?
The Ancient One: I pushed your astral form out of your physical form.

The Ancient One: It's just tea... with a little honey.
Dr. Stephen Strange: What just happened?
The Ancient One: For a moment, you entered the astral dimension.
Dr. Stephen Strange: The what?
The Ancient One: A place where the soul exists apart from the body.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Why are you doing this to me?
The Ancient One: To show you just how much you don't know. Open your *eye*. [She touches Strange's forehead and blasts him into an odyssey across dimensions]
