Nick Fury: "I am Iron Man." You think you're the only superhero in the world? Mr Stark, you've become part of a bigger universe. You just don't know it yet.
Tony Stark: Who the hell are you?
Nick Fury: Nick Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. I'm here to talk to you about the Avenger Initiative.
Tony Stark (to Pepper): You know, if I were Iron Man, I'd have this girlfriend who knew my true identity. She'd be a wreck, 'cause she'd always be worrying that I was going to die, yet so proud of the man I'd become. She'd be wildly conflicted, which would only make her more crazy about me.
Pepper Potts: Agent Coulson? I just wanted to say thank you very much for all of your help.
Phil Coulson: That's what we do. You'll be hearing from us.
Pepper Potts: From the Strategic Homeland...
Phil Coulson: Just call us S.H.I.E.L.D.
Phil Coulson: Here's your alibi.
Tony Stark: Okay.
Phil Coulson: You were on your yacht.
Tony Stark: Yeah.
Phil Coulson: We have port papers that put you in Avalon all night, and sworn statements from 50 of your guests.
Tony Stark: See, I was thinking maybe we should say it was just Pepper and me alone on the island.
(Tony is reading a newspaper where the main story is "Who is the Iron Man?")
Tony Stark: "Iron Man." That's kind of catchy. It's got a nice ring to it. I mean, it's not technically accurate. The suit's a gold-titanium alloy, but it's kind of evocative, the imagery, anyway.
(Tony arrives at a party...)
Woman: Hey, Tony, remember me?
Tony Stark: Sure don't. (doesn't stop walking)
Tony Stark (to Watcher Informant): You look great, Hef.
Tony Stark: Do a weather and ATC check. Start listening in on ground control.
Jarvis: Sir, there are still terabytes of calculations needed before an actual flight is...
Tony Stark: Jarvis! Sometimes you got to run before you can walk.
Pepper Potts: What do you want me to do with this?
Tony Stark: That? Destroy it. Incinerate it.
Pepper Potts: You don't want to keep it?
Tony Stark: Pepper, I've been called many things. "Nostalgic" is not one of them.
Tony Stark: I never got to say goodbye to Dad. I never got to say goodbye to my father. There's questions that I would have asked him. I would have asked him how he felt about what this company did. If he was conflicted, if he ever had doubts. Or maybe he was every inch the man we all remember from the newsreels. I saw young Americans killed by the very weapons I created to defend them and protect them. And I saw that I had become part of a system that is comfortable with zero accountability. I had my eyes opened. I came to realise that I have more to offer this world than just making things that blow up. And that is why, effective immediately, I am shutting down the weapons manufacturing division of Stark International until such a time as I can decide what the future of the company will be. What direction it should take, one that I'm comfortable with and is consistent with the highest good for this country, as well.
Phil Coulson: I'm not a reporter. I'm Agent Phil Coulson, with the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.
Pepper Potts: That's quite a mouthful.
Phil Coulson: I know. We're working on it.
