Justin Hammer: Never mind, I... Wow. Okay. Good stuff.
(Ivan Vanko says something in Russian)

Tony Stark: I don't care about the liberal agenda any more. It's boring. Boring. I'm giving you a boring alert. You do it.
Pepper Potts: I do what?
Tony Stark: Excellent idea. I just figured this out. You run the company.
Pepper Potts: Yeah, I'm trying to run the company.
Tony Stark: Pepper, I need you to run the company. Well, stop trying to do it and do it.
Pepper Potts: You will not give me the information...
Tony Stark: I'm not asking you to try...
Pepper Potts: ...in order to...
Tony Stark: I'm asking you to physically do it. I need you to do it.
Pepper Potts: I am trying to do it!
Tony Stark: Pepper, you're not listening to me!
Pepper Potts: No, you are not listening to me.
Tony Stark: I'm trying to make you CEO. Why won't you let me?
Pepper Potts: Have you been drinking?
Tony Stark: Chlorophyll. I hereby irrevocably appoint you chairman and CEO of Stark Industries, effective immediately. Yeah, done deal. Okay? I've actually given this a fair amount of thought, believe it or not. Doing a bit of headhunting, so to speak, trying to figure out who a worthy successor would be. And then I realised it's you. It's always been you. I thought there'd be a legal issue, but actually I'm capable of appointing my successor. My successor being you.

Tony Stark: My device does not fit that description.
Senator Stern: Well... How would you describe it?
Tony Stark: I would describe it by defining it as what it is, Senator.
Senator Stern: As?
Tony Stark: It's a high-tech prosthesis. That is... That is... That's actually the most apt description I can make of it.
Tony Stark: What are you up to later?
