--->'''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? Because '''you need us'''. Yes, the world is a vulnerable place and yes, we helped make it that way. But we're also the ones best qualified to defend it.

** Steve uses this again when he's on the run, wearing a hoodie and thick-rimmed glasses with thick lenses. An Apple employee gives him a querying stare, but it turns out he just recognized that they own the same kind of glasses.

* MrExposition:
** [[spoiler: Zola]] only appears to explain how [[spoiler: HYDRA has infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. and manipulated world events to its own ends]]. After Cap and Black Widow learn all this, [[spoiler: Zola]] [[TakingYouWithMe orders a missile strike against them and himself]].
** Besides serving as Pierce’s NumberTwo, Sitwell’s other major purpose is [[spoiler: explaining Project Insight to the heroes.]]


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Despite [[spoiler: HYDRA’s deep infiltration of S.H.I.E.L.D.]], it does nothing to stop Captain America from being revived in the present, nor does it have any apparent plan of eliminating or even containing him, [[spoiler: even though Cap is responsible for defeating HYDRA the first time]].


Added DiffLines:

* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler: Zola]] orders a missile strike on the bunker that stores his [[BrainUpload computer brain]], because this will eliminate Captain America and Black Widow as well.


Added DiffLines:

* WrongGenreSavvy: [[spoiler: Sitwell]] assumes Captain America is too much TheCape to engage in a HighAltitudeInterrogation. But that’s why Cap brought [[TheLancer Black Widow]].

* ArtisticLicensePharmacology: [[spoiler: Nick Fury fakes his death with "tetrodotoxin d", claiming it lowers the heart rate to 1 beat per minute. Real tetrodotoxin has the opposite effect -- it's a stimulant and thus ''increases'' your heart rate (while also paralyzing your diaphragm, making you unable to breathe).]]

** Earlier, throughout the first half of the film, Pierce is played as a CoolOldGuy ReasonableAuthorityFigure who's willing to turn a blind eye to the MilitaryMaverick antics of the likes of Steve, and to a lesser extent, his old friend Nick Fury, and his opposition to Steve seems to be rooted in his correct belief that Steve knows more about [[spoiler: Fury's apparent death]] than he's letting on. Later, it seems he's about to become a victim of HYDRA's infiltration when [[spoiler:the Winter Soldier]] turns up at his house at night, and he stares him down while [[NervesOfSteel telling his housekeeper, who's out of his sight-line, that she can go without even a tremor in his voice]]. Pierce then calmly segues into [[spoiler:giving the Winter Soldier his new orders, and when the housekeeper comes back because she forgot her phone and sees both, Pierce [[HeKnowsTooMuch remarks upon the intrusion and casually shoots her dead]].]]

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: It's somewhat difficult to put a finger on exactly how The Winter Soldier thinks with regards to morality, but "blue and orange" is the best way. He's not so much a person as he is a weapon with a human body and brain -- almost all traces of humanity have been destroyed by Hydra's brain wipes. He thinks only in the context of completing his assigned mission (like a machine programmed to do a task), so the idea that what he's doing is wrong might not ever cross his mind. [[spoiler:Alexander Pierce]] does tell him that his work has been "a gift to mankind," so if he ''does'' have anything resembling a moral conscience, [[ObliviouslyEvil it might be telling him that he's actually doing the right thing]] -- especially since the trailers made it seem like [[spoiler: Pierce]] was saying it as part of a motivational speech to Steve.

** In the trailer, after Steve finishes taking down everyone in the elevator fight, he's shown saying, "Damn, right!" before kicking his shield back into his hands. [[spoiler: In the actual film, Steve's line is instead, "It kind of ''feels'' personal," after Rumlow told him otherwise right before his final attack.]]

* ActorAllusion:
** [[Creator/SamuelLJackson Nick Fury]] uses an advanced metal-cutter that operates like a [[Franchise/StarWars lightsaber]].
** Black Widow's quip, "I'm sorry, did I step on your moment?" to [[spoiler:Alexander Pierce]] seems to have been [[Film/PulpFiction borrowed]] from [[Creator/SamuelLJackson her superior]].
** The epitaph on [[spoiler:Nick Fury's]] headstone
is trivia inscribed with [[spoiler:the Bible verse [[Film/PulpFiction Ezekiel 25:17]]]].
** Steve replies to a joking jab at his [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld age]] by Natasha[[note]]"Hey fellas, either one of you know where the Smithsonian is? I'm here to pick up a fossil."[[/note]] with a sarcastic [[Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld "That's hilarious."]]
** One of the targets is [[Film/FantasticFour2005 the Baxter Building]]. Good thing the [[Creator/ChrisEvans Human Torch]] was busy playing at Cap.
** Pierce's refrigerator prominently features a jar of Newman's Own Spaghetti Sauce. Creator/PaulNewman
and goes Creator/RobertRedford were famous co-stars and friends, collaborating in several film classics such as ''Film/ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid'' and ''Film/TheSting''.
** One of the books on Steve's shelf is ''Film/AllThePresidentsMen.'' Robert Redford starred

movie version.
** The Watergate Hotel is visible outside Pierce's office. Again, Robert Redford starred in the movie version of the ''All the President's Men'', about the Watergate scandal.
** Robert Redford being cast as [[spoiler:the antagonist]] is an ironic allusion to him portraying the protagonist in ''Film/ThreeDaysOfTheCondor'', a film which has undisputed influence on ''Captain America: The Winter Soldier''.
** Steven Culp plays a unnamed government official, likely a member of Congress, during a congressional hearing at the end of the film. He played fictional Speaker of the House Jeff Haffley on ''Series/TheWestWing''; perhaps they're even the same character.
** Pierce mentions that his father served in the 101st Airborne. Robert Redford played a soldier in the 82nd Airborne in ''Film/ABridgeTooFar'', which was about a battle that included the 101st.
** Steve states wryly that if he weren't a soldier, he could take up "Ultimate Fighting." In the BatmanColdOpen, Steve fights a character played by long-time UsefulNotes/UltimateFightingChampionship welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.

* RedShirtArmy: S.H.I.E.L.D. agents valiantly try to fight back during the climax, but are easily mowed down by the [[spoiler:Insight and STRIKE]] crews, and the Winter Soldier.
** Some loyal pilot even says, "We're Captain America's only air support." Guess who gets killed next?
