The Other: Humans. They are not the cowering wretches we were promised. They stand. They are unruly, and therefore cannot be ruled. To challenge them is to court death.
(Thanos shows his face for the first time)
The World Security Council: I don't think you understand what you've started, letting the Avengers loose on this world. They're dangerous.
Nick Fury: They surely are, and the whole world knows it. Every world knows it.
The World Security Council: Was that the point of all this? A statement?
Nick Fury: A promise.
Steve Rogers: We won.
Tony Stark: All right, yay! Hurray. Good job, guys. Let's just not come in tomorrow. Let's just take a day. Have you ever tried shawarma? There's a shawarma joint about two blocks from here. I don't know what it is, but I want to try it.
Thor: We're not finished yet.
Tony Stark: And then shawarma after.
Steve Rogers: Is he breathing?
(Hulk roars at Tony)
Tony Stark: What the hell? What just happened? Please tell me nobody kissed me.
Steve Rogers: You need men in these buildings. There are people inside and they're going to be running right into the line of fire. You take them to the basements or through the subway. You keep them off the streets. I need a perimeter as far back as 39th.
Police Officer: Why the hell should I take orders from you? (Captain kills off couple of the Chitauri) I need men in those buildings. Lead the people down and away from the streets. We're going to set up a perimeter all the way down to 39th Street.
Natasha Romanoff: Just like Budapest all over again.
Clint Barton: You and I remember Budapest very differently.
Steve Rogers: Loki needs a power source. If we can put together a list...
Tony Stark: He made it personal.
Steve Rogers: That's not the point.
Tony Stark: That is the point. That's Loki's point. He hit us all right where we live. Why?
Steve Rogers: To tear us apart.
Tony Stark: Yeah, divide and conquer is great but he knows he has to take us out to win, right? That's what he wants. He wants to beat us, he wants to be seen doing it. He wants an audience.
Steve Rogers: Right. I caught his act in Stuttgart.
Tony Stark: Yeah, that was just previews. This is opening night. And Loki, he's a full-tilt diva, right? He wants flowers, he wants parades. He wants a monument built to the skies with his name plastered... Son of a bitch.
