Natasha Romanoff: You're not going to put me in a prison. You're not going to put any of us in a prison. You know why?
Member of the Congress: Do enlighten us.
Natasha Romanoff: Because you need us. Yes, the world is a vulnerable place, and yes, we help make it that way. But we're also the ones best qualified to defend it. So, if you want to arrest me, arrest me. You'll know where to find me.
Steve Rogers: Attention all S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, this is Steve Rogers. You've heard a lot about me over the last few days. Some of you were even ordered to hunt me down. But I think it's time you know the truth. S.H.I.E.L.D. is not what we thought it was. It's been taken over by HYDRA. Alexander Pierce is their leader. The S.T.R.I.K.E. and insight crew are HYDRA as well. I don't know how many more, but I know they're in the building. They could be standing right next to you. They almost have what they want. Absolute control. They shot Nick Fury. And it won't end there. If you launch those helicarriers today, HYDRA will be able to kill anyone that stands in their way. Unless we stop them. I know I'm asking a lot. But the price of freedom is high. It always has been. And it's a price I'm willing to pay. And if I'm the only one, then so be it. But I'm willing to bet I'm not.
Sam Wilson: Did you write that down first, or was it off the top of your head?
Steve Rogers: We're not just taking down the carriers, Nick. We're taking down S.H.I.E.L.D.
Nick Fury: S.H.I.E.L.D. had nothing to do with this.
Steve Rogers: You gave me this mission. This is how it ends. S.H.I.E.L.D.'s been compromised. You said so yourself. HYDRA grew right under your nose and nobody noticed.
Nick Fury: Why do you think we're meeting in this cave? I noticed.
Steve Rogers: How many paid the price before you did?
Nick Fury: Look, I didn't know about Barnes.
Steve Rogers: Even if you had, would you have told me? Or would you have compartmentalised that, too? S.H.I.E.L.D., HYDRA, it all goes.
Agent Sitwell: Zola's algorithm is a program for choosing insight's targets.
Steve Rogers: What targets?
Agent Sitwell: You! A TV anchor in Cairo, the Under Secretary of Defence, a high school valedictorian in Iowa City, Bruce Banner, Stephen Strange, anyone who's a threat to HYDRA. Now, or in the future.
