The World Security Council: You're running the world's greatest covert security network and you're going to leave the fate of the human race to a handful of freaks.
Nick Fury: I'm not leaving anything to anyone. We need a response team. These people may be isolated, unbalanced even but I believe with the right push they can be exactly what we need.
The World Security Council: You believe? War isn't won by sentiment, Director.
Nick Fury: No, it's won by soldiers.
Loki: I am Loki, of Asgard and I am burdened with glorious purpose.
Erik Selvig: Loki, brother of Thor.
Nick Fury: We have no quarrel with your people.
Loki: An ant has no quarrel with a boot.
Nick Fury: Are you planning to step on us?
Loki: I come with glad tidings of a world made free.
Nick Fury: Free from what?
Loki: Freedom. Freedom is life's great lie. Once you accept that, in your heart, you will know peace.
Nick Fury: Yeah, you say "peace," I kind of think you mean the other thing.
