[Tony Stark addresses a press conference]
Tony Stark: I never got to say goodbye to my father. There's questions I would've asked him. I would've asked him how he felt about what his company did, if he was conflicted, if he ever had doubts. Or maybe he was every inch of man we remember from the newsreels. I saw young Americans killed by the very weapons I created to defend them and protect them. And I saw that I had become part of a system that is comfortable with zero-accountability.
Press Reporter #1: Mr. Stark, what happened over there?
Stark: I had my eyes opened. I came to realize that I had more to offer this world than just making things that blow up. And that is why, effective immediately, I am shutting down the weapons manufacturing division of Stark Industries. [reporters become agitated]

Tony Stark: [upon seeing the new render] Hey, I like it. Fabricate it, paint it.
Jarvis: Beginning automated assembly. Estimated completion time is five hours.

Obadiah Stane: Wait, wait, the technology? [gestures towards the Arc Reactor] William, William... here is the technology! I've asked you to simply make it smaller.
