Grant Ward: Why was I pulled out of Paris?

Maria Hill: That, you’ll have to ask agent Coulson.

Grant Ward: Yeah. I’m clearance level six. I know that… Agent Coulson was killed in action before the battle of New York. Got the full report.

Phil Coulson: Welcome to level seven. Sorry… that corner was really dark, and I couldn’t help myself. I think there’s a bulb out.
