Apocalypse Inc. Chairman: Melvin Junko, COME ON UP!

TV Show: The Avengers
John Steed: So much for science, I'll stick to swordplay.

TV Show: The Avengers
John Steed: [there are four men lying unconscious on the floor] Do you know these gentlemen?
Aunt Hetty: What John, Paul, George and Fred? Well of course I know them. You can get up now, they're my favourite nephews. Absolutely my favourite.
Aunt Hetty: Nephews?
Aunt Hetty: Naturally. And I like to think that I am their favourite auntie.

TV Show: The Avengers
The Devil: Alright Junko, let's party!

TV Show: The Avengers
[after the chairman mutates into the devil]
The Toxic Avenger: Oh man, you are one ugly amphibian!

TV Show: The Avengers
Loki: Enough! You are, all of you are beneath me! I am a god, you dull creature, and I will not be bullied by... [Hulk flattens Loki with repeated smashes into the floor]
The Hulk: Puny god.

Movie: The Avengers
Steve Rogers: Thor, what's his play?
Thor: He has an army, called the Chitauri. They're not of Asgard or any world known. He means to lead them against your people. They will win him the Earth. In return, I suspect, for the Tesseract.
Steve Rogers: An army. From outer space.
Bruce Banner: So he's building another portal. That's what he needs Erik Selvig for.
Thor: Selvig?
Bruce Banner: He's an astrophysicist.
Thor: He's a friend.
Natasha Romanoff: Loki has them under some kind of spell. Along with one of ours.
Steve Rogers: I wanna know why Loki let us take him. He's not leading an army from here.
Bruce Banner: I don't think we should be focusing on Loki. That guy's brain is a bag full of cats. You can smell crazy on him.
Thor: Have a care how you speak! Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard and he is my brother!
Natasha Romanoff: He killed eighty people in two days.
Thor: He's adopted.

Movie: The Avengers
Loki: The Chitauri are coming. Nothing will change that. What have I to fear?
Tony Stark: The Avengers. That's what we call ourselves; we're sort of like a team. Earth's Mightiest Heroes type thing.
Loki: Yes, I've met them.
Tony Stark: Yeah, takes us a while to get any traction, I'll give you that one. But let's do a head count here: your brother the demi-god; a super soldier, a living legend who kind of lives up to the legend; a man with breath-taking anger management issues; a couple of master assassins, and YOU, big fella, you've managed to piss off every single one of them.
Loki: That was the plan.
Tony Stark: Not a great plan. When they come, and they WILL, they'll come for you.
Loki: I have an army.
Tony Stark: We have a Hulk.
Loki: I thought the beast had wandered off...
Tony Stark: You're missing the point! There's no throne, there is no version of this where you come out on top. Maybe your army comes and maybe it's too much for us but it's all on you. Because if we can't protect the Earth, you can be damned well sure we'll avenge it!

Movie: The Avengers
Tony Stark: What's the stat, Rogers?
Steve Rogers: [looks at the Helicarrier tech]It seems to be powered by some sort of electricity!
Tony Stark: ...well, you're not wrong.

Movie: The Avengers
Iron Man: [as the fight begins]Call it, Captain!
Captain America: Alright, listen up. Until we can close that portal, our priority's containment. Barton, I want you on that roof, eyes on everything. Call out patterns and strays. Stark, you got the perimeter. Anything gets more than three blocks out, you turn it back or you turn it to ash.
Hawkeye: [to Iron Man]Want to give me a lift?
Iron Man: Right. Better clench up, Legolas. [Iron Man takes Hawkeye up to the roof]
Captain America: Thor, you gotta try and bottleneck that portal. Slow 'em down. You got the lightning. Light the bastards up. [Thor swings his hammer and flies off and Captain America turns to Black Widow]
Captain America: You and me, we stay here on the ground, keep the fighting here. And Hulk? [the Hulk turns and glares at Cap]
Captain America: Smash! [Hulk grins and leaps away]

Movie: The Avengers
Steve Rogers: What's the matter, scared of a little lightning?
Loki: I'm not overly fond of what follows... [Thor appears]

Movie: The Avengers
Security Guard: Are you an alien?
Bruce Banner: What?
Security Guard: From outer space, an alien.
Bruce Banner: No.
Security Guard: Well then son, you've got a condition.

Movie: The Avengers
Thor: Where is the Tesseract?
Loki: [laughs]I missed you too.
Thor: Do I look to be in a gaming mood?
Loki: Oh, you should thank me. With the Bifrost gone, how much dark energy did the Allfather have to muster to conjure you here, your precious Earth?
Thor: I thought you dead.
Loki: Did you mourn?
Thor: We all did. Our father...
Loki: YOUR father! He DID tell you my true parentage, did he not?
Thor: We were raised together, we played together, we fought together. Do you remember none of that?
Loki: I remember a shadow, living in the shade of your greatness. I remember you tossing me into an abyss, I who was and should be king!
Thor: So you take the world I love as recompense for your imagined slights? No, the Earth is under MY protection, Loki!
Loki: [laughs]And you're doing a marvelous job with that! The humans slaughter each other in droves, while you ideally threat. I mean to rule them. And why should I not?
Thor: You think yourself above them?
Loki: Well, yes.
Thor: Then you miss the truth of ruling, brother. A throne would suit you ill.
Loki: I've seen worlds you've never known about! I have grown, Odin's Son, in my exile! I have seen the true power of the Tesseract, and when I wield it...
Thor: Who showed you this power? Who controls the would-be-king?
Loki: I AM a king!
Thor: Not here! You give up the Tesseract! You give up this pointless dream!... You come home. [pause]
Loki: ...I don't have it. [Thor threatens Loki with his hammer]
Loki: You need the cube to bring me home, but I've sent it off, I know not where.
Thor: You listen well, brother. I... [Thor is knocked off the mountain by Iron Man who tackles him in mid-flight]
Loki: I'm listening.

Movie: The Avengers
[Stark suits up to chase Thor and Loki]Steve Rogers: Stark, we need a plan of attack!
Tony Stark: I have a plan: attack!

Movie: The Avengers
Tony Stark: That man is playing Galaga! Thought we wouldn't notice. But we did.

Movie: The Avengers
Steve Rogers: Big man in a suit of armour. Take that off, what are you?
Tony Stark: Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.
Steve Rogers: I know guys with none of that worth ten of you. I've seen the footage. The only thing you really fight for is yourself. You're not the guy to make the sacrifice play, to lay down on a wire and let the other guy crawl over you.
Tony Stark: I think I would just cut the wire.
Steve Rogers: Always a way out... You know, you may not be a threat, but you better stop pretending to be a hero.
Tony Stark: A hero? Like you? You're a lab rat, Rogers. Everything special about you came out of a bottle!
Steve Rogers: Put on the suit. Let's go a few rounds.

Movie: The Avengers
Loki: Kneel before me. I said, KNEEL! [Loki stamps his scepter on the ground, causing a shockwave that intimidates the crowd into silence as they all kneel before him]
Loki: Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It's the unspoken truth of humanity, that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power, for identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel.
German Old Man: [slowly rises to his feet]Not to men like you.
Loki: [smiling]There are no men like me.
German Old Man: There are *always* men like you.
Loki: Look to your elder, people. Let him be an example. [Loki aims a blast of power from his scepter at the old man when Captain America leaps in front of the intended target, deflecting the blast with his shield back at Loki, knocking him down]
Steve Rogers: You know, the last time I was in Germany and saw a man standing above everybody else, we ended up disagreeing.
Loki: The soldier. A man out of time.
Steve Rogers: I'm not the one who's out of time.

Movie: The Avengers
Faceless Pilot: Target acquired. [Fires guns at Hulk]
Faceless Pilot: Target engaged. [as Hulk leaps toward airplane]

Movie: The Avengers
Thor: Do not touch me again!
Tony Stark: Then don't take my stuff.
Thor: You have no idea what you are dealing with.
Tony Stark: Uh, Shakespeare in The Park? Doth mother know you weareth her drapes?
Thor: This is beyond you, metal man. Loki will face Asgardian justice.
Tony Stark: He gives up the Cube, he's all yours. Until then, stay out of the way, tourist.

Movie: The Avengers
Tony Stark: [about Loki killing Coulson]He made it personal.
Steve Rogers: That's not the point.
Tony Stark: That IS the point. That's Loki's point! He hit us all right where we live. Why?
Steve Rogers: To tear us apart.
Tony Stark: Yeah, divide and conquer is great, but he knows he has to take us out to win, right? THAT'S what he wants. He wants to beat us, he wants to be seen doing it. He wants an audience.
Steve Rogers: Right. I caught his act at Stuttgart.
Tony Stark: Yeah, that was just previews. This is - this is opening night. And Loki, he's a full-tilt diva, right? He wants flowers, he wants parades. He wants a monument built to the skies with his name plastered... [Stark pauses; he and Rogers look at each other knowingly]
Tony Stark: Sonofabitch!

Movie: The Avengers
Natasha Romanoff: [watching the aliens come toward them]This is just like Budapest all over again.
Clint Barton: You and I remember Budapest very differently.

Movie: The Avengers
Steve Rogers: Does Loki need any particular kind of power source?
Bruce Banner: He'd have to heat the cube to a hundred and twenty million Kelvin just to break through the Coulomb barrier.
Tony Stark: Unless Selvig has figured out how to stabilize the quantum tunnelling effect.
Bruce Banner: Well, if he could do that, he could achieve heavy ion fusion at any reactor on the planet.
Tony Stark: Finally, someone who speaks English.
Steve Rogers: Is that what just happened? [Stark and Banner shake hands]
Tony Stark: It's good to meet you, Dr. Banner. Your work on anti-electron collisions is unparalleled. And I'm a huge fan of the way you lose control and turn into an enormous green rage monster.
Bruce Banner: Thanks.
Nick Fury: [to Stark]Dr. Banner is only here to track the cube. I was hoping you might join him.
Steve Rogers: Let's start with that stick of his. It may be magical, but it works an awful lot like a Hydra weapon.
Nick Fury: I don't know about that, but it is powered by the cube. And I'd like to know how Loki used it to turn two of the sharpest men I know into his personal flying monkeys.
Thor: Monkeys? I do not understand.
Steve Rogers: I do! [Stark rolls his eyes, while Captain America looks proud of himself]
Steve Rogers: I understood that reference.

Movie: The Avengers
[Captain America puts on a parachute to go follow after Thor, Loki and Iron Man]Natasha Romanoff: I'd sit this one out, Cap.
Steve Rogers: I don't see how I can.
Natasha Romanoff: These guys come from legend. They're basically gods.
Steve Rogers: There's only one God, ma'am, and I'm pretty sure he doesn't dress like that. [Captain America leaps out of the Quinjet]

Movie: The Avengers
Agent Phil Coulson: [via phone]Mr Stark, we need to talk.
Tony Stark: You have reached the life model decoy of Tony Stark, please leave a message.
Agent Phil Coulson: This is urgent.
Tony Stark: Then leave it urgently. [Coulson enters Stark's penthouse, hanging up his cellphone]
Tony Stark: Security breach.
Tony Stark: [to Pepper]That's on you.
Agent Phil Coulson: Mr Stark.
Pepper Potts: Phil! Come in.
Tony Stark: Phil? Uh, his first name is Agent.

Movie: The Avengers
Nick Fury: You think you could make Loki tell us where the Tesseract is?
Thor: I do not know. Loki's mind is far afield. It's not just power he craves, it's vengeance, upon me. There's no pain would prise his need from him.
Nick Fury: A lot of guys think that. Until the pain starts.
Thor: What are you asking me to do?
Nick Fury: I'm asking, what are you prepared to do?
Thor: Loki is a prisoner.
Nick Fury: Then why do I feel like he's the only person on this boat that wants to be here?

Movie: The Avengers
Pepper Potts: Is this about the Avengers? Which I know nothing about.
Tony Stark: The Avengers initiative was scrapped, I thought. And I didn't even qualify.
Pepper Potts: I didn't know that either.
Tony Stark: Apparently I'm volatile, self-obsessed, and don't play well with others.
Pepper Potts: That I did know.

Movie: The Avengers
Tony Stark: [regaining consciousness]What just happened? Please tell me nobody kissed me.
Steve Rogers: We won.
Tony Stark: Alright. Hey. Alright. Good job, guys. Let's just not come in tomorrow. Let's just take a day. Have you ever tried shawarma? There's a shawarma joint about two blocks from here. I don't know what it is, but I wanna try it.

Movie: The Avengers
Steve Rogers: Doctor Banner, now might be a good time for you to get angry.
Bruce Banner: That's my secret, Captain: I'm always angry. [Banner hulks out and punches the Leviathan]

Movie: The Avengers
Loki: Please tell me you're going to appeal to my humanity
Tony Stark: Uh, actually I'm planning to threaten you.
Loki: You should have left your armor on for that.
Tony Stark: Yeah. It's seen a bit of mileage and you got the glow-stick of destiny. Would you like a drink?
Loki: Stalling me won't change anything
Tony Stark: No, no no, threatening! No drink? You sure? I'm having one.

Movie: The Avengers
Waitress: [deleted scene: Cap, feeling disconnected from the world, sits at an outdoor cafe table sketching Stark Tower]Waiting on the big guy?
Steve Rogers: Ma'am?
Waitress: Iron Man. A lot of people eat here just to see him fly by.
Steve Rogers: Right. Maybe another time. [pays his tab]
Waitress: The table's yours as long as you like. Nobody's waiting on it. Plus we've got free wireless.
Steve Rogers: Radio? [she gives him a nice look over her shoulder as she walks away]
Stan Lee: [from the adjacent table]Ask for her number, you moron.
