Alexei Shostakov: I only ever loved you girls. I did my best to make sure you would succeed to achieve your fullest potential, and everything worked out.

Natasha Romanoff: Everything worked out?

Alexei Shostakov: Yes. For you, yes. We accomplished our mission in Ohio. Yelena, you went on to become the greatest child assassin the world has ever known. No one can match your efficiency, your ruthlessness. And Natasha, not just a spy, not just toppling regimes, destroying empires from within, but an Avenger. You both have killed so many people. Your ledgers must be dripping, just gushing red. I couldn’t be more proud of you.
