Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch says: I'm sorry...

Vision says: If you do this, they will never stop being afraid of you.

Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch says: I can't control their fear, only my own.

Steve Rogers/Captain America says: You're saying it's our fault?

Vision says: I'm saying there may be a causality. Our very strenght invites challange, challange incites conflict, and conflict... Breeds catastrophy.

Vision says: I'm saying there may be a causality. Our very strenght invites challange, challange incites conflict, and conflict... breeds catastrophy.

Vision says: I'm saying there may be a causality. Our very strength invites challange, challange incites conflict, and conflict... breeds catastrophy.

Scarlet Witch says: I looked inside your mind and I saw destruction.

The Vision says: Look again.

Max Waters says: I spent my life trying to reduce the brain to a series of electrical impulses. I failed. Human emotion... It can contain illogical conflict. Can love someone and yet hate the things that they've done. Machine can't reconcile that.

Jarvis says: Sir, the Mark VII is not ready for deployment.

Tony Stark/Iron Man says: Well then skip the spinning rims, we're on the clock!

Evelyn says: We can upload his consciousness. We can save him...

Max Waters says: Not like this... Assuming that this works, if we miss anything, a thought, a childhood memory, how would you know whom we're dealing with?

Max Waters says: Are you sure about this?

Peter Colt says: There's so much to say!

Tom Edison says: Maybe people just regard things a criminal because they envy their success.

Tom Edison says: It's quite a blow to me to see all my friends act this way--so uncivilized.

Liz Henson says: Honestly, Tom, you've done it again. Made us come here to listen to a lot of nonsense. Who do you think you are? Some kind of philosopher?

Tom Edison says: Observant, that's what I am.

Ma Ginger says: Lazy, I would say.

Nicholas says: You soothe your conscience with grand phrases, but it's a weak, contemptible man who trades in the lives of others.

Martin says: For heaven's sake, we're actors, not judges.

Nicholas says: That's exactly what we have become.

Dr. Stephen Maturin says: Jack, I fear you have burdened me with a debt I can never fully repay.

Captain Jack Aubrey says: Name a shrub after me. Something prickly and hard to eradicate.

Priest says: You've got your gun loaded?

Hicks says: Why?

Priest says: You're gonna need it.

Chaucer says: [keeping time with a stick as William and Wat dance] And one, two, and three and four and your hands should be light like a birdy on a branch. And one, two, and three and four and Wat doesn't lead. He follows like a girl.

Wat says: [looks at William]

William Thatcher says: [shrugs in agreement with Chaucer]

Wat says: [laughs a bit, then punches Chaucer in the nose]

Chaucer says: [with some bloody cotton up his nose moments later, conducting William and Wat] And one, two and twirly, twirly, twirly. One and two and you're still getting it wrong. And one, two, and three and four. You can hit me all day cause you punch like a what?

Roland says: A girl.

Monsignor Chamberlain says: Remember your vow, to go against the church is to go against god.

Priest says: No, it is JUST beginning!

Monsignor Chamberlain says: Remember 'to go with the church is to go against God'.

Priest says: Then I go against God.

Will Emerson says: to Seth: If you really want to do this with your life you have to believe that you're necessary, and you are. People want to live like this with their cars and their big fucking houses they can't even pay for - then you're necessary. The only reason people get to continue living like kings is because we've got our fingers on the scales and we're tipping in their favor. I take my hand off, well then the whole world gets really fucking fair really fucking quick and nobody actually wants that. They say they do, but they really don't. They want what we have to give but they also want to play innocent and pretend they have no idea where it actually came from; and that's more hypocrisy than I'm willing to swallow, so fuck 'em.

John Forbes Nash Jr. says: Well, I met a girl.

Charles Herman says: No! A human girl?

John Forbes Nash Jr. says: Homo sapien.

Charles Herman says: A biped?

John Forbes Nash Jr. says: Yep. And, contrary to all probabilities, she finds me attractive on a number of different levels.

Charles Herman says: "Nothing's ever for sure, it's the only sure thing I know"

Charles Herman says: Nothing's ever for sure, John. That's the only sure thing I do know.

Inspector John Acheson says: Well, He won't be dueling tonight"

Inspector John Acheson says: Well, he won't be dueling tonight.

Priest says: "save your bullets"

Priest says: Save your bullets.

Priest says: What good is that faith when it's a lie.

Priest says: Shhhh. It's a trap.

Priest says: I have questions and doubts.

Michael says: When God chose your kind as the object of His love, I was the first in all of heaven to bow down before you. My love, my hope for mankind was no less than His. But I have watched you trample that gift. I have watched you kill each other over race and greed... waging war over dust and rubble and the words in old books. And yet, in the midst of all this darkness, I see some people who will not be bowed. I see some people who will not give up, even when they know all hope is lost. Some people, who realize being lost is so close to being found. I see you, Jeep. Fifteen years old, your mother leaves. Your father withdraws from the world and you spend the next five years of your young life helping him find his way home. You love a woman who bears the child of another and you love her with no thought of yourself, even though you know she may never love you the way you love her. You, Jeep... you are the reason I still have faith.

Inspector John Acheson says: This is exactly why she chose him. To distract us.
