* In "The Curious Case of the Countless Clues", the SherlockHolmes {{Expy}} falls for the false clues left by the killers, while Steed remains less than convinced.
-->'''Steed''': And clumsy.\\
'''Sir Arthur Doyle''': Clumsy?\\
'''Steed''': Well look around, [[GenreSavvy they've left everything except their name and address]].
* In "Death at Bargain Prices," Emma Peel is working undercover as a department store clerk:
-->'''Steed''': I asked the chief predator where to find you and he said, "Our Mrs. Peel is in ladies' underwear." I rattled up the stairs three at a time.
* In "The Danger Makers," Emma receives a box of chocolates from a suspect in the case, and Steed treats it as if it is a bomb:
-->'''Steed''': ''(after carefully opening the box with a knife and tweezers)'' Ah, thought so.
-->'''Mrs. Peel''': Booby trapped?
-->'''Steed''': ''(gingerly removing a wrapped piece with the tweezers)'' Whatever you do, don't touch the wrapped ones.
-->'''Mrs. Peel''': Why not?
-->'''Steed''': Because I like them. ''(he pops it in his mouth as Emma slams the box shut)''

* In the current run issue 2, Steve and Tony are recruiting members for the new incarnation.
** They offer Wolverine beer (itself a RunningGag about the character in other titles).
** They offer Spider-Man money. His reaction: "Oh, thank God." while he's hugging Iron Man.
** They offer the Falcon "[[RuleOfThree I dunno... birdseed?]]"
** [[NewMutants Cannonball and Sunspot]] are chilling on a beach, insisting on retiring from heroics. The moment Cap calls, they're in.
* During ComicBook/TheKorvacSaga, the Avengers had to deal with the ObstructiveBureaucrat Henry Peter Gyrich, who revoked their special priority. Even so, they have finally located the enemy: he's in a house in Forest Hills Gardens. Now, to get there...
-->'''Iron Man:''' A good question, Wasp! With our Avengers Priority revoked, we can't use the Quinjets! And since some of us can't fly, we'll just have to wing it another way! '''AVENGERS ASSEMBLE'''... uh... on the corner, outside.
** So, all the Avengers go to the battle for the destiny of the universe... [[http://www.blastoffcomics.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/So-Many-Avengers.jpg on bus]].
* Wonder Man's first attempt as an actor was a complete disaster. Without a job, he accepted to take part in a secret production, that he's not in the liberty to talk about. Excuses, excuses: the Beast discovered his "secret production" while changing TV channels. Wonder Man works as "Mr. Muscles" in a children's TV show. He took a boy, and he fell to the ground. The TV host told he must be punished for being a DumbMuscle... with a PieInTheFace. Fortunately (for him) Captain America interrupted the TV to issue a warning about an upcoming emergency. Beast: "Jesus, Cap, do you have any idea of what have you just interrupted?"
* In a Christmas special featuring the New Avengers, the team ends up stopping an Ultron android that had been altered to also act like Santa Claus. When the team finds out about the troubled girl who did this, they resolve to give her a better Christmas. During their visit, Spidey attempts to start a speech, realizes he's horrible at speeches, then drags Cap over to do the speech instead.
** The whole special is great. Especially when "Santron" drops into the chimney, the party goes silent, except for an extremely well-timed "[[LukeCageHeroForHire Sweet Christmas.]]"
* In KellySueDeconnick's first issue of Avengers Assemble, SpiderWoman used her pheromone powers to get the Hulk to make her a sandwich. [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v255/blinkytreefrog/Avengers11.jpg Observe the magic.]]
* In the first issue of ''The Amazing Spider-Man'' following the ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan'' storyline, Spidey has an OutOfClothesExperience. Which is then broadcast over the internet. Spider-Woman concludes that she is certain Parker is back, because that kind of thing could [[ButtMonkey only happen to him]].
* One issue has most of the team sitting through an award ceremony for Captain America.... except that the they're all completely bored out of their minds. When its pointed out that Iron Man is the only one sitting attentively and showing respect... there's a closeup and snoring is coming from the suit.
* In one of the ''OriginalSin'' tie-in issues, the Avengers jump 5000 years into the future and meet up with an older and immortal Franklin Richards. He seems to be the last hero from the current era left alive and he lives on a floating island with a massive tree in the middle. After the Avengers leave, Franklin says something seemingly to himself... and then the tree [[spoiler:responds, I AM GROOT]]. Guess he wasn't the last hero after all.

[[caption-width-right:320:[[MetronomicManMashing "Puny god."]]]]
Considering how gut-bustingly witty many Creator/JossWhedon productions are, this was bound to happen. Highlights include:


[[folder: Tony Stark[=/=]Iron Man]]

* JARVIS informed Tony that Coulson wants to meet him when Tony was just arrived outside Stark Tower.
-->"[Tell him that] I'm not in! Well, [[ExactWords I'm actually out]]."
* Tony and Pepper discussing who gets the credit for Stark Tower, Tony says Pepper can claim 12%. She gives him a flat look.
--> '''Tony''': I'm going to pay for that comment about percentages later in some subtle way, aren't I?\\
'''Pepper:''' Not gonna be that subtle.
** [[BrickJoke The payoff]]:
---> '''Tony''': I thought we were having a moment.\\
'''Pepper''': I was having 12% of a moment.
** Also, Tony's insistence that "An argument can be made for fifteen!" is as if he seriously thought it was the only solution.
** From the same scene, Tony's reaction to Pepper being on a FirstNameBasis with Coulson.
---> '''Tony''': ''Phil?'' His first name is "[[NoNameGiven Agent]]".
** And finally, the exchange where Coulson tries to hand Tony his briefing folder. Tony apparently hates being handed things, but Pepper has no problem, so she trades her wine with Coulson, then trades the folder for ''Tony's'' wine.
* Thor and Tony's [[LetsYouAndHimFight fight]], from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3qjMlvJ0UI start]]...
-->'''Thor:''' Do not touch me again.\\
'''Tony''': Then don't take my stuff.\\
'''Thor:''' [[YouHaveNoIdeaWhoYoureDealingWith You have no idea what you're dealing with]].\\
'''Tony:''' Uh... [[YourCostumeNeedsWork Shakespeare in the park]]? ''[does a Shakespearean pose]'' [[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe Doth mother know you weareth]] [[SuperheroesWearCapes her drapes]]?
** (and funnily enough, Thor seems to be caught somewhere between towering, offended indignation and vague amusement at that line)
** ...To Thor shooting Iron Man with a lightning bolt...
---> '''JARVIS''': [[AttackBackfire Power at 400% capacity]].\\
'''Tony''': [[MillionToOneChance How 'bout that]]?
*** ...To [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BydGYKnG6M finish]].
---->'''Captain America''': Hey! That's enough! Now, I don't know what you plan on doing here -\\
'''Thor''': I've come here to put an end to Loki's schemes.\\
'''Cap''': Then prove it. Put that hammer down.\\
'''Iron Man''': [[GenreSavvy Uh, yeah, no, bad call!]] [[BerserkButton He loves his-]]\\
''[Thor smacks Iron Man aside]''\\
'''Thor''': '''''[[ChewingTheScenery YOU WANT ME TO PUT THE HAMMER DOWN?!?]]'''''\\
''[Thor '''[[ExactWords puts]]''' the hammer '''[[DropTheHammer down]]''' -- [[UnstoppableForceMeetsImmovableObject right onto]] Cap's [[MadeOfIndestructium Vibranium Shield]]'']\\
'''''[[KungFuSonicBoom BOOM]]'''''\\
''[everyone gets up and looks around, bewildered at the collateral damage]''\\
'''Cap''': Are we done here?
*** Possibly the best part of that scene is Loki in the background, [[PassThePopcorn calmly sitting and watching]] his enemies beat the crap out of each other. Hell, the fact that all three of them are fighting over ''Loki'' (of all "stuff", as Tony would say) is hilarious in itself.
* Between ''Film/IronMan2'' and ''The Avengers'', Tony Stark bought the [=MetLife=] building and has made all kinds of renovations, including installing the first production-model Arc Reactor. But his favorite renovation is [[{{Egopolis}} his name on the building in giant letters.]]
--> '''Tony''': It's like Christmas, but with more... me.
* Tony entering the briefing and then getting [[InsufferableGenius utterly confused that no-one else]] [[SmugSuper has installed his high-tech holographic computers]].
--> '''Tony''': ''[covering an eye with his hand to imitate Fury's eyepatch]'' How does Fury even see these?\\
'''Maria Hill''': [[DeadpanSnarker He]] [[CaptainObvious turns]].\\
'''Tony''': Sounds ''[[BrilliantButLazy exhausting]]''!
* It wasn't his field of expertise, and so he's the only one who actually read Dr. Selvig's notes and the extraction theory papers, demonstrating both parts of InsufferableGenius:
-->'''Maria Hill''': When did you become an expert in thermonuclear astrophysics?\\
'''Tony Stark''': ''Last night''.
* Tony begins one of his signature rambling speeches by [[OneOfUs accusing one of]] the MissionControl officers of playing ''VideoGame/{{Galaga}}'' on the job. The long scene ends with [[BrickJoke one of the techies switching his screen back to the game while nobody's looking.]] Even better, [[ThrowItIn it wasn't originally in the script]], as much as you can expect from Creator/RobertDowneyJr.
** What's great about the above two examples is that it's revealed to the audience that he's secretly planting a tiny device to hack into the S.H.I.E.L.D. computers and he's basically just distracting everyone by being a wiseass.
** What really establishes this is an ad-lib is that Cap looks confused at the time. Yup, it's actually not Cap being a FishOutOfWater again, but it's really Creator/ChrisEvans genuinely confused because Robert Downey, Jr. said something that's not included in the film's script!
** A {{Creator/LEGO}} playset based on the Helicarrier interior references this: one of the stickers for the computer screens is a game of ''SpaceInvaders''.
* Tony's attempt to blow off Agent Coulson:
--> '''Coulson''': Mr. Stark, we need to talk.\\
'''Tony''': You've reached the [[MythologyGag life-model decoy]] of Tony Stark. Please leave a message.\\
'''Coulson''': This is urgent.\\
'''Tony''': Then leave it urgently.\\
''[the elevator opens, revealing Coulson]''\\
'''Tony''': ''[points at Pepper]'' [[BrickJoke Security breach! It's on you.]]
* Being playful with Bruce Banner:
--> '''Tony Stark''': You know, you should come by Stark Tower sometime, top 10 floors, all R&D. You'd love it, it's Candyland.\\
'''Bruce Banner''': Thanks, but [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk the last time I was in New York]], [[PersonOfMassDestruction I kind of broke... Harlem]].\\
'''Tony Stark''': I promise a totally stress-free work environment, no surprises... ''[[[BullyingADragon shocks him]]]''\\
'''Bruce Banner''': Ow!\\
'''Tony Stark''': Nothing?\\
'''Steve Rogers''': [[WhattheHellHero Hey! Are you nuts?]]\\
'''Tony Stark''': Jury's out. ''[to Bruce]'' You've really got a lid on it, huh? What's your secret? [[BreadMilkEggsSquick Relaxing jazz, bongo drums, huge bag of weed?]]\\
'''Steve Rogers''': Is everything a joke to you?\\
'''Tony Stark''': Funny things are.\\
'''Steve Rogers''': [[DudeNotFunny Threatening safety of everyone in this ship isn't funny!]] [towards Bruce] No offense, Doctor.
** The funniest bit about that is after he shocks him, Tony quickly looks intently at Bruce's eyes to see if there's any hint of the Hulk.
*** Even better, [[ActuallyPrettyFunny Bruce Banner himself]] cracks up.
* When Stark and Banner find out that they're both huge techno-geeks and rattle off a string of TechnoBabble to each other:
--> '''Bruce Banner''': He'd have to heat the cube to 120,000,000 Kelvin just to break through the Coulomb barrier.\\
'''Tony Stark''': Unless Selvig has figured out how to stabilize the quantum tunneling effect.\\
'''Bruce Banner''': Well, if he could do that, he could achieve heavy-ion fusion at any reactor on the planet.\\
'''Tony Stark''': Finally! Someone who speaks English.\\
'''Steve Rogers''': ''[mumbling to himself]'' Is that what just happened?\\
'''Tony Stark''': It's good to meet you, Dr. Banner. Your work on anti-electron collisions is unparalleled. (''{{beat}}'') [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers And I'm a huge fan of the way you lose control and turn into an]] [[BuffySpeak enormous green rage monster]].\\
'''Bruce''': ''[deadpan]'' ...Thanks.
* Tony's first interaction with Steve Rogers.
--> '''Tony Stark''': Still you're pretty spry for an... older fellow. What's your thing? Pilates?\\
'''Steve Rogers''': What?\\
'''Tony Stark''': It's like calisthenics. You might have missed a couple things. [[HumanPopsicle You know, doin' time as a Cap-sicle.]]
* After Thor removes Loki from the Quinjet:
--> '''Steve''': Stark, we need a plan of attack!\\
'''Tony''': [[LeeroyJenkins I have a plan: attack.]]
* Tony forgets to factor in Steve's man-out-of-time issues while trying to fix the Helicarrier's busted engine, resulting in some sarcasm from Cap:
-->'''Tony''': ''[from inside rotor]'' Okay, tell me what you see!\\
'''Steve''': ''[staring at a bewilderingly high-tech panel]'' [[MathematiciansAnswer It seems to run on some form of electricity]].\\
'''Tony''': Well, you're not wrong...
* Just before the climactic battle, Cap and Tony still [[spoiler: grieving over Coulson's death]] discuss Loki's next move:
--> '''Tony:''' [[ItsPersonal He made it personal]].\\
'''Cap:''' That's not that point.\\
'''Tony:''' No, that ''is'' the point. That's Loki's point. He hit all of us right at where we live. Why?\\
'''Cap:''' [[WeAreStrugglingTogether To tear us apart]].\\
'''Tony:''' Yeah, divide and conquer's... great... but, he knows he has to take us out for him to win, right? [[GlorySeeker That's what he wants! He has to beat us, he has to be seen doing it]]. He needs an audience.\\
'''Cap:''' Right. [[PuttingOnTheReich We caught his act in Stuttgart]].\\
'''Tony:''' Yeah. That's just preview. This is opening night! And, Loki, he's a full-tilt diva, [[ItsAllAboutMe he wants flowers, he wants parades]], [[NotSoDifferent he wants a monument built to the sky with his name plastered]]-- \\
''[{{Beat}} with Cap [[FascinatingEyebrow raising an eyebrow pointedly]] at [[HypocriticalHumor Tony's choice of adjectives for Loki]]]''\\
'''Tony:''' [[ExplainExplainOhCrap Sonofabitch]]. ''[[[spoiler:he realizes Loki will use his own Stark Tower for summoning the Chitauri]]]''
* Tony and Loki, threatening each other.
-->'''Loki:''' I have an army.\\
'''Tony:''' We have a ''Hulk''.
* And before that:
-->'''Loki:''' Please tell me you're going to appeal to my humanity.\\
'''Tony:''' Uh, actually, I'm planning to threaten you.
** Later on:
--> '''Tony:''' Would you like a drink?\\
'''Loki:''' Stalling me won't change anything.\\
'''Tony:''' No, no, no, threatening. No drink, you sure? I'm having one.
* More CasualDangerDialog.
-->'''Tony:''' ''[to Cap]'' Tell him ''[referring to Banner, who just arrived]'' to suit up. I'm bringing the party to you.\\
''[flies from behind building chased by a Leviathan]''\\
'''Natasha''': I-I don't see how that's a party.
* The defeat of the third Leviathan also warrants a mention:
-->'''Tony:''' You ever heard of the tale of [[EatMe Jonah]]?\\
'''JARVIS:''' I wouldn't consider him a role model.
* When Loki asks for a drink, look carefully: everyone is sporting a serious face but Tony ''smirks''.
* Iron Man's idea of a post-victory celebration. [[spoiler: They do it, in the ''other'' [[TheStinger stinger,]] as everyone is exhausted from the battle, and are nodding to sleep as they try and eat their shawarma. [[http://www.themovies.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/avengerendcred522012.jpg It was shown only in US releases]].]]
-->'''Captain America''': We won.\\
'''Iron Man''': [''recovering from [[HeroicRROD RROD]]''] Alright, hey! Hooray! 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 dunno what it is, but I wanna try it.\\
'''Thor''': We're not finished yet.\\
'''Iron Man''': ...and then shawarma after?
** There's almost no way anyone would notice it on the first viewing, but Tony bounces past a shawarma joint when he crash-lands after [[spoiler:diving through a Leviathan]]. It's a blink-and-you-miss-it sort of thing, and is kind of amusing if you consider what it says about [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny Tony.]] [[spoiler:"Well, that was stupid, but at least it worked... huh, shawarma. What's shawarma? I am kind of hungry. I should try that."]]
** That whole sequence gets bonus points just for being such a brilliant parody of the {{Marvel Cinematic Universe}}'s traditional post-credits [[TheStinger stingers]]. At any movie screening, it's inevitable that at least half the audience will wait until the end of the credits to catch some mind-blowing SequelHook. Here, they wait until [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYiZeszLosE the end of the credits]]...[[spoiler: and get to see six exhausted superheroes silently eating shawarma in a bombed-out cafe as the staff tries to mop up the post-alien invasion mess]]. [[RealityEnsues Which is probably what would happen in real life]].
** Made even funnier by the fact that [[spoiler:Mark Ruffalo is obviously {{Corpsing}}]].
** There's a quick moment where Tony looks at Bruce as if to say, "How's the food?" Bruce nods and goes back to munching.
** The scene begins with Thor chewing meditatively, as if making up his mind about this strange new food, and then it ends with [[BigEater Thor taking a massive, crunchy bite of his wrap]] [[JabbaTableManners with crumbs falling all over the table]].
* Iron Man flying around a corner, popped a huge display of [[FlareGun flares]] at an oncoming Leviathan, then wondering what to do next.
-->'''Iron Man:''' Okay, we got its attention. What the hell was [[MissingStepsPlan step two?]]
* Tony as TheNicknamer.
** Iron Man to Loki: "Make a move, Reindeer Games."
*** "I don't like it." "What, RockOfAges giving up so easily?"
** Iron Man to Hawkeye: "Better clench up, [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Legolas]]."
*** And if you look closely, Hawkeye's grimace right before they take off suggests that he took Tony at his word...
** Iron Man to Thor: "No hard feelings, Film/PointBreak..."
*** If you've watched ''Point Break'', you'll know that Bodhi, the character Tony's referencing is Australian. Now consider what nationality Creator/ChrisHemsworth is? Also, said character was played by the late Creator/PatrickSwayze, who played Jed in ''Film/RedDawn 1984''. Chris Hemsworth played the same role in [[Film/RedDawn2012 the remake]].
* Accompanied by the sound of the scepter charging, Loki attempts to brainwash Tony by sticking his heart with the scepter as he did with Hawkeye and Selvig. Instead, it hits the arc reactor under his shirt with a clank. A moment of silence, and then Loki tries again, again accompanied by the sound of the scepter charging. ''Clank.''
-->'''Loki:''' ...this usually works.\\
'''Tony Stark:''' Well, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything performance issues]]. It's not uncommon. One out of five...
** Bonus points because it takes Loki a second to realize what Tony is insinuating. [[DestinationDefenestration Then he throws him through a window.]]
** This scene is cut in one trailer so that it looks like it's Tony who goes out the window and an inexplicable Steve who lands outside.
* Even during a tense moment, Tony gets in some snark:
-->'''Steve''': Big guy in a suit of armor. Take that off, what are you?\\
'''[[RhetoricalQuestionBlunder Tony]]''': [[GadgeteerGenius Genius]] [[FictionFiveHundred billionaire]] [[ThePornomancer playboy]] [[UnclePennybags philanthropist]].
** Even more funny is Black Widow's JerkassHasAPoint nod of agreement.
** And in the trailer, it's followed by Thor laughing in amusement.
* The part where Tony reactivates the turbine, but Cap is too busy with the enemy to pull the emergency lever. This results in the former being trapped in the reactivated turbine.
** Made even better by the pinball-esque sound effects that accompany his bouncing around under the turbine. And before he goes under, he says, "[[ThisIsGonnaSuck Uh-oh.]]" and then while he's bouncing around under the turbine, he says, "Help!"
* Easy to miss but when the big argument happens on the helicarrier, Tony's acting like a child more than usual:
-->'''Thor''': You treat your champions with such distrust!\\
'''Natasha Romanoff''': Are you boys really that naive? S.H.I.E.L.D. monitors potential threats.\\
'''Bruce Banner''': And ''Captain America'' is on threat watch?\\
'''Natasha Romanoff''': We all are.\\
'''Tony Stark''': ''[to Cap]'' Wait, ''you're'' on that list? Are you above or below "angry bees"?\\
'''Steve Rogers''': Stark, so help me God, you make one more wisecrack...\\
'''Tony Stark''': Threat! Verbal threat! I feel threatened!
** [[spoiler:Of course, the bit about Rogers being on threat watch becomes a FunnyAneurysm moment after ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' reveals that HYDRA has infiltrated SHIELD from Day 1, and since Rogers is HYDRA's biggest enemy, they put him on the list.]]
* During the big battle in the second half of the movie, it takes an awfully long time for Cap, Black Widow, and Hawkeye to arrive in one of the ships to help Iron Man out. Tony of course lampshades this:
-->"What, did you guys stop at a drive-thru?!"
* Tony's interactions with any of the non-SHIELD Avengers - zapping Bruce, snarking at Steve, insulting Thor's cape. Thor, Bruce, and the Captain have ''no idea'' how to deal with him, so they tend to fluctuate between offended indignation and vague amusement.
* Heck, Tony having a conversation with Loki while standing behind a bar stand is very funny given the circumstances.
* Steve and Loki's confused reaction to Iron Man's BigEntrance is this when you consider that this is probably their introduction to Music/{{ACDC}}.


[[folder: Bruce Banner[=/=]The Incredible Hulk ]]

* Natasha tells Banner "it's only you and me" while convincing him to help SHIELD ''as'' Dr. Banner, ''not'' the Hulk. Then he scares her, '''[[SuddenlyShouting "STOP LYING TO ME!"]]'''. She [[JumpScare freaks out]] and promptly grabs her gun. Bruce only chuckles, looks obviously amused and satisfied that he's just managed to {{troll}} her. "I'm sorry, that was mean. I just wanted to see what you'd do." But she keeps holding the gun, while telling [[JustYouAndMeAndMyGuards the huge team outside]] to back off as it was a false alarm...
--> '''Banner''': [[GenreSavvy "Just you and me", huh?]]
** It's even [[RunningGag funnier]] when you remember that ''[[ConsummateProfessional Natasha]]'' [[HypocriticalHumor is the twitchy one]], just like Betty in ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk''.
* A lot of Banner's dialogue - due to an odd mix of his knowing how powerfully dangerous it is, and covering up his resignation to the fact with sarcastic wit and SelfDeprecatingHumor. Another example from his conversation with Natasha.
--> '''Natasha:''' This is the Tesseract. ''[shows him a picture of it]'' It has the potential energy to wipe out the planet.\\
'''Banner:''' What's Fury want me to do, swallow it?
** Which is even funnier when you realize that the Hulk just might be able to do that.
*** Most comics fans fell on the floor laughing at that bit, because Hulk swallowing things was a ''legitimate tactic'' ALL THE TIME.
* When Natasha initially suggests that Steve and Bruce come inside because it's "about to get hard to breathe" on the deck, Steve guesses that the carrier is submersible; Bruce wonders wryly if they really want him in a "submerged, pressurized, metal container." Cue realization as the carrier begins to lift off:
-->'''Bruce:''' ''[bewildered smirk]'' Oh, no, this is ''much'' worse.
* Loki telling off ''the Hulk'' [[BullyingADragon as if he were scolding a naughty child]]. What does the Hulk do? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWqGNITWIEc What he does best]]. [[MetronomicManMashing Smash]]. Also counts as a MomentOfAwesome.
--> '''Loki:''' ''ENOUGH!'' You are, all of you, beneath me! [[AGodAmI I am a]] ''[[AGodAmI god]]'', you dull creature! [[BullyingADragon And I will NOT be bullied by--]]\\
''[The Hulk [[ShutUpHannibal grabs Loki by the legs]] and begins MetronomicManMashing. Three smacks reduce the marble floor to gravel and Loki to a horrid, broken, senseless mess. Hulk takes a close split-second look at him, then proceeds to [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill smack him against the floor]] two more times [[DoubleTap just to be sure.]]]''\\
'''Hulk:''' [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Puny god...]]\\
''[The tone of the Hulk's voice can only be considered ''disappointment'' - he had issues to work out, and it was over so quickly. All Loki can do is lie there in his own crater with a bug-eyed and stupefied ''"What the hell just happened?"'' look on his face.]''
** Even better is the surprised squawk he gives when the Hulk grabs him and the little pained barely-audible wheeze that Loki gives as the Hulk is walking away.
** A bit of funny trivia: [[spoiler: When Creator/ClarkGregg was feeling down about just having filmed Coulson's death scene, the producers showed him an early animatic of this scene. He felt much better afterwards.]]
** In the Joss Whedon commentary, he just shuts up and lets the scene play out. He then comments that that moment is his MagnumOpus.
** Even the music is funny in this scene. It starts to play Loki's ominous-sounding theme as he begins his rant, then cuts out abruptly mid-note when Hulk grabs him.
** Incidentally, ''Banner'' wouldn't actually remember that the Hulk did this, which may explain why he chuckles in response to Black Widow whispering to him during Thor's and Loki's departure-scene: she told Bruce how Loki'd gotten so bruised up, and even ''he'' found it funny!
%%Yes, we know, your theater applauded. They all did. We don't need eight lines of "Me too!" here.
* The Hulk {{Offhand Backhand}}s Thor ''right out of the shot'' after they crash one of the Chitauri leviathans into Grand Central Station. Doubles as a BrickJoke to settling their fight on the Helicarrier earlier in the movie.
** Or the Hulk dislikes kill-stealing.
** Even better: no wind-up, no telegraphing of any kind; they stand together in one frame, and then in the very next frame, Hulk's fist is extended and Thor is out of frame.
* The Avengers rendezvous in the streets to start the counter-attack against the Chitauri. Banner arrives... on a beat-up motorcycle. And observes, so casually that he sounds almost cheerful, "So, this all seems... horrible."
** It's even funnier when you remember the LockAndLoadMontage from earlier.
* Best CPR ever: [[spoiler:The Hulk roars to ''shock'' Tony into waking up.]]
** Even better, this was apparently [[ThrowItIn ad-libbed]] by Mark Ruffalo.
** ''After'' [[spoiler: the Hulk wakes him up with a roar]], we get this:
---> '''Tony''': Please tell me nobody kissed me.
* After Loki, caged, delivers his evil speech, the group is listening to him from the security system.
--> '''Bruce:''' ''[grins]'' He really grows on you, doesn't he?


[[folder: Steve Rogers[=/=]Captain America]]

* Agent Coulson and Steve Rogers. Coulson is a {{Fanboy}}, Steve finds him a bit creepy.
-->'''Agent Coulson''': I watched you while you were sleeping. ''[[[ThatCameOutWrong awkward silence]]]'' I-I mean... I was present when you were unconscious from the ice.
* When Nick Fury meets with Captain America in the beginning they wind up [[SideBet betting ten dollars]] that there's [[SeenItAll nothing that can surprise Cap anymore]]. After he sees the SHIELD helicarrier take off, he heads to the bridge and wordlessly hands Fury a ten-dollar bill, which he accepts without even looking at Cap.
** Meta-example: A popular post on Tumblr said: "The first time I saw the movie, I missed the part about Steve saying nothing would surprise him, so I assumed that Steve just hands out money like old people do."
* After Thor takes Loki away from SHIELD custody, Iron Man goes after them. Not wanting to be left behind, Captain America is about to follow suit when Black Widow advises him not to do so, as both Thor and Loki are powerful beings and could be considered gods. The good captain's response?
-->'''Steve''': [[RealMenLoveJesus There's only one God, ma'am, and I'm pretty sure He doesn't dress like that]].
** Watch closely when Captain America interrupts Thor's and Iron Man's fight, and just before Thor slams his hammer on Cap's shield: he throws the shield, which rebounds off Tony's armor and ''Thor's head''. And both acting like they barely noticed that it happened.
*** When he angrily says "That's ''enough!''", the delivery of the line gives the impression that he's scolding two misbehaving children.
* Black Widow mentions Coulson's fanboying over Captain America and his trading cards. A couple scenes later, we see Cap standing there passively watching the agents work and Coulson in the middle of sheepishly asking him to autograph his cards.
--> '''Black Widow:''' There was quite the buzz over at headquarters when they found you in the ice. I thought Coulson was going to swoon. Has he asked you to sign his trading cards yet?\\
'''Cap:''' Trading cards?\\
'''Black Widow:''' They're vintage. He's very proud.
* The movie giving a delightful ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' reference during the first group debriefing:
--> '''Fury:''' I'd like to know what Loki did to turn two of the sharpest men I know into his personal [[Film/TheWizardOfOz flying monkeys]].\\
'''Thor''': [[FishOutOfWater Monkeys? I do not understand--]]\\
'''Cap''': [[FishOutOfTemporalWater I do!]] [''{{beat}}, while Cap proudly but shyly and adorkably smiles''] [[MemeticMutation I understood that reference]].[[note]]In case anyone still doesn't get it, ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'' came out in 1900, and [[Film/TheWizardOfOz the movie]] in 1939. Steve Rogers became frozen in 1945.[[/note]]
** What makes it hilarious is that Cap looks ''so damn proud'' at the fact he got the joke.
*** Even more hilarious, if easy to miss, is Tony rolling his eyes at that.
*** And made better with the setup. The preceding conversation has several similar but more recent pop culture references, which go right past Cap with a fitting "Huh?" expression on his face. It doubles as a minor moment of heartwarming when he finally catches something familiar.
* Captain America giving orders to the others, then...
--> '''Steve:''' And Hulk?\\
''[the Hulk looks over at him]''\\
'''Steve:''' [[BorrowedCatchPhrase Smash]].\\
''[Hulk grins, then '''gets to work''']''
** The brief look on Steve's face between the words "Hulk" and "Smash", as if he's trying to find the right words to describe the tactic he wants... and realizes that Hulk already knows the word.
* Captain America orders some police around to set up a perimeter and ensure the safety of the civilians. While the cop in charge asks why he should follow him, Chitauri arrive and Cap just beats all of them to the ground. [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority The cop then proceeds to relay the Captain's orders, word for word.]]
* In the trailer at the end of ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', we see Cap punching a bag so hard it bursts. In the extended version of that scene in this film, after the bag is punched, we pan down to ''six more bags'', and he puts one on the chain and starts training again. After he's done talking with Nick, he takes a bag back with him to his room.
** Made a touch funnier in that it's called a 'heavy bag' for a reason (around 100 pounds), and super-soldier Rogers is casually picking one up... with one hand... and no visible effort.
** Originally, there was a good ten minutes with Cap establishing his character. Joss realized you could cut it down to a small photo thing...and that one shot.
* Just before the big fight, as also noted on the MOA page, Cap ordering down a S.H.I.E.L.D agent while trying to commandeer a ride... with the gravitas of a true OldSoldier...
-->'''Cap:''' [[PreemptiveShutUp Son, just]] ''[[PreemptiveShutUp don't]]''.
* When Cap and Tony are arguing, Cap twice demands that Tony put on the suit so that they can go a few rounds. Then [[spoiler: a brainwashed Hawkeye hits a turbine on the S.H.I.E.L.D carrier, exploding the room the group are in and dropping them to different sections of the ship]].
-->'''Cap''': ''[[[OhCrap urgent, non threatening tone]]]'' Put on the suit.\\
'''Tony''': Yep.
* Cap, of all people, saying that JARVIS was taking too long to hack into S.H.I.E.L.D.'s mainframe is pretty hilarious.
* In Steve's own movie, we see he's not above trading barbs with his friends, but his depiction in this movie is reserved and polite, mainly because of the gravity of his Man Out of Time-ness and because he doesn't know these people. Thank God we have Tony Stark to drag out his wit.
-->'''Tony''': "Wait, when did this become about me?"
-->'''Cap''': "I'm sorry, isn't everything?"
** Later,
-->'''Tony''': "That standard control unit can reverse the polarity long enough to disengage maglev, and that should--"
-->'''Cap''': "Speak ''English''!"
-->'''Tony''': [beat] "...see that red lever?"

[[folder: Thor]]

* Bruce Banner and Thor get a one-two punch of CMOF at their strategy meeting;
-->'''Banner''': I don't think we should be focused on Loki; that guy's brain is a bag of cats. You can ''smell'' crazy on him.\\
'''Thor''': Have a care how you speak. Loki may be beyond reason, [[ThickerThanWater but he is of Asgard, and he is my brother]].\\
'''Black Widow''': He killed eighty people in two days.\\
'''Thor''': ...[[LameComeback He's adopted.]]
* When everyone is arguing in the Helicarrier, Thor jumps in with this gem:
-->'''Thor:''' You people are so ''petty''... and tiny.
** What really sells it is the grin on his face as he says it. Everyone else is about to reach breaking point, and here's Thor beaming like he's a kid watching a puppet show.
* Thor starts talking about this creature from another of the nine realms (bilgesnips) to Coulson. "You don't have those?"
** That and his ''imitation'' of their "big antlers".
* A subtle one towards the very end of the movie.[[spoiler: The nuke has just been launched at Manhattan, and Cap and Thor are the last two Avengers still fighting in the streets. The soundtrack is playing this dramatic, tragic orchestral piece. Cap gets hit, he falls down, the foot soldiers are still coming... And then Thor completely destroys their advance by flattening them with a car. The music stops. And it doesn't restart again until the scene cuts to Black Widow on the roof.]]
* While fighting with Iron Man in the forest, Thor delivers a headbutt that send Iron Man flying. And the suit's helmet is dented. Yep, Thor's skull is stronger than Tony Stark's armor.


[[folder: Loki]]
* Thor's confrontation with Loki gets interrupted by Tony:
--> '''Thor''': Listen well, brother. I-- ''[is promptly tackled offscreen by Iron Man]''\\
'''Loki''': [[DeadpanSnarker I'm listening]].
** Adding even more to the humor of the moment, Loki then [[PassThePopcorn casually settles down on his rock like he's a member of the audience to watch the show]].
* Before that, Thor asks an obvious question. Loki's "um, ''[[CaptainObvious duh]]''" expression is priceless.
--> '''Thor''': You think yourself above them?\\
'''Loki''': [[BluntYes Well, yes.]]
* After Cap and Iron Man have loaded Loki onto a Quinjet, it suddenly starts to storm...
--> '''Cap''': What's the matter? Scared of a little lightning?\\
'''Loki''': [[ThisIsGonnaSuck I'm not overly fond of]] [[{{Film/Thor}} what follows]].
** Cue Cap and Tony looking at each other, confused.
* Loki, in response to [[spoiler: getting the tar beat out of him and watching his entire plan crumble into dust in the span of hours. Not to mention an ''angry'' roster of Avengers glaring at him as he lies on the floor.]]
-->'''Loki:''' [[GracefulLoser If it's all the same to you]], [[INeedAFreakingDrink I'll have that drink]] [[BrickJoke now.]]
** If you pay attention to the blocking, you'll note that [[spoiler:the Avengers come up behind him through the open wall, meaning Loki was apparently heading toward the bar already.]]
** Closer examination will reveal a quick smirk on Tony's face after Loki mentions taking him up on the offer.
* Loki's line after he manages to [[spoiler: trap Thor in the cell that Loki himself had occupied and was originally meant to contain the Hulk]] by using one of his illusions.
-->'''Loki''': Are you ever ''not'' going to [[ContinuityNod fall for that]]?
** Loki's probably been doing stuff like that since he was a toddler. Thor ''still'' fell for it. The best part is that [[MythologyGag Loki did this very same trick in the first Avengers comic book]]. [[http://sphotos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/318987_440556326002379_2086010269_n.jpg See it for yourself]].
* Loki rolling his eyes and looking very irritated every time Thor is mentioned. He also does this when they lock him in the steel container.


[[folder: Nick Fury]]

* The way ComicBook/NickFury said this to SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} is unintentionally hilarious: "''Sir'', put down the spear." That's right, [[BadassNormal Nick]] [[SeenItAll Fury]] called the god of mischief as "''Sir''".
* NickFury (dis)regarding the [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness World Security Council]] [[NukeEm decision]] on the crisis:
-->'''Fury:''' I recognize that the council has made a decision, but given that it's a ''[[WhatWereYouThinking stupid-ass]]'' decision, [[SophisticatedAsHell I've elected to ignore it]].
* Fury shutting down Thor:
-->'''Thor:''' I thought humans were more evolved than this.\\
'''Fury:''' ''Excuse'' me? Do we come to ''your'' planet and blow stuff up?
* After shooting down one plane, Fury turns to see the second one taking off. No longer armed with a rocket launcher, he pulls out his sidearm and momentarily levels it at the retreating jet.
* This bit of dialogue.
-->'''Fury:''' Bring the carrier about to a 1-8-0 heading south. Take us to the water.\\
'''Helmsman:''' We're flying blind. Navigation's recalibrating after the engine failure.\\
'''Fury:''' Is the sun coming up?\\
'''Helmsman:''' ...Yes sir.\\
'''Fury:''' Then put it on the ''left''!
* In the first scene of the movie, Loki arrives and compares the humans to be ants under his boot. Later, when Loki is captured, Fury is explaining to him the cage function, and BrickJoke is expected:
--> '''Fury:''' ''[pointing to Loki]'' Ant, ''[pointing to control pad]'' Boot.
** In the same scene, after Loki's cutting little speech about how frustrating it must be to have been so close to the unlimited power of the tesseract, "and then to be reminded what ''real'' power is.":
---> '''Fury:''' Well, let me know if "real power" wants a magazine or something.


[[folder: Natasha Romanov / Black Widow]]

* Natasha's opening scene where she is tied to a chair, dangled over a trapdoor, and about to be questioned by way of a pair of pliers to the face. Then someone's phone rings.
-->'''Thug 1''': Da? ''[{{beat}}, in Russian]'' It's for her.\\
''[he looks confused as he hands the phone to his boss]''\\
'''Corrupt Russian official''': ''[spouts angry Russian]''--\\
'''Coulson''': You are at 114 Salinski Plaza, 3rd floor. We have an F-22 exactly 8 miles out. Put the woman on the phone or [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill I will blow up the block before you can make the lobby.]]\\
''[Corrupt Russian official shakily holds phone to Natasha's ear]''
-->'''Coulson''': We need you to come in.\\
'''Natasha''': Are you kidding? I'm working. \\
'''Coulson''': This takes precedence.\\
'''Natasha''': I'm in the middle of an interrogation, this ''moron'' is [[JustBetweenYouAndMe giving me everything]].\\
''[cut to bewildered Corrupt Russian official]''
-->'''Corrupt Russian Official''': I don't... [[OhCrap give her everything]]...? ''[he looks at Widow, and she does a pitying little 'Yeah, you have' nod]''\\
'''Natasha''': You cannot pull me out of this right now. \\
'''Coulson''': Tasha... [[ItsPersonal Barton's been compromised]].\\
'''Natasha''': ''[who, it must be noted, [[WithMyHandsTied is still bound to a reasonably sturdy chair at this point]]]'' ...Let me put you on hold.\\
''[Cue her going into ActionGirl mode, [[ImprovisedWeapon using AND shattering said chair,]] beating the hell out of the three guys while [[SeenItAll Coulson waits patiently, listening calmly to the sounds of violence as though it's hold music.]] Then she collects her heels and saunters off.)''
** What sells it is the switch in her tone. How she was really playing up the part of a panicked captive, then Coulson calls and she's ''annoyed''; it's like breaking character while shooting a scene. The Russians' bewildered expressions while wondering what the heck is going on is the icing on the cake.
** Which is followed by her muttering, ''боже мой'' (''bozhe moi'', "Oh my God") when told by Coulson to recruit Bruce Banner.
* Some CasualDangerDialog:
--> '''Black Widow''': ''[fighting off Chitauri soldiers at range alongside {{Hawkeye}}]'' It's just like [[NoodleIncident Budapest]] all over again!\\
'''Hawkeye''': You and I remember Budapest ''very'' differently.
** Which gets funnier on a rewatch - when Tony gets information from Coulson on the other prospective Avengers, you see a video clip of things like the Hulk rampaging and Thor's business out in New Mexico, and a brief clip of Clint and Natasha taking cover behind some rubble and firing at off-screen enemies. Didn't seem to be all that different!
* Cap and Natasha are discussing the fastest way to get the top of the tower. Natasha says nervously, "This will be fun," once they work out that that she has to bounce off Cap's shield in order hijack one of the Chitauri gliders.
** This is followed by another hilarious moment as Loki takes up pursuit on his glider. When Natasha realizes he's back there, her reaction is more annoyed and exasperated than frightened.
---> '''Natasha''': Oh. You.
*** And to boot, the Chitauri she's riding ''looks back too'', wondering why [[BadBoss Loki]] is shooting at him.
* A surprisingly light moment when Natasha is interrogating Loki:
--> '''Black Widow''': Regimes fall every day. I tend not to weep over that, I'm Russian. Or, I ''was''.
* When Iron Man brings "the party" to the rest of the Avengers (in the form of the Leviathan), Natasha makes this golden comment:
-->'''Natasha''': [[DeadpanSnarker I-I don't see how that's a party.]]

[[folder: ...and Everyone Else]]

* Agent Coulson even gets a Funny Moment [[spoiler:while dying]] via his BFG.
-->'''Coulson''': ...[[BrickJoke So that's what it does.]]
* Banner's conversation with the janitor:
--> Son, you got a condition.
** Made even funnier when he asks him if he's an alien, as he's played by [[HeyItsThatGuy Harry Dean Stanton]] who played a similar role (mechanic, but still) in ''Film/{{Alien}}''.
** When the janitor describes the Hulk as "Big and green and buck-ass nude".
* During the final fight Hawkeye fires an arrow at Loki, who catches it and makes an 'oh, ''please''' expression. [[spoiler: The arrow promptly explodes.]]
* Stan Lee makes a cameo at the end, saying, "Superheroes? In New York? Gimme a break..."
* A Joint Strike Fighter pilot tries to get the Hulk's attention.
-->'''Pilot''': Target engaged. ''[fires Gatling gun]''\\
''[Hulk gets hit, turns, and jumps toward the Jet]''\\
'''Pilot''': ''[[[OhCrap look of terror]]]'' Target angry. Target angry!


[[folder: Others]]

* Never mind box office rankings, ''Film/TheAvengers'' [[http://www.uproxx.com/gammasquad/2012/08/chinese-bootleg-avengers-subtitles/#page/1 may well become the next]] "[[Franchise/StarWars Backstroke Of]] [[BlindIdiotTranslation The]] [[MemeticMutation West]]"!
* HilariousOuttakes are out. [[spoiler:Bruce Banner [[GirlyRun running like a girl]]!]]
** CobieSmulders' ChewingTheScenery [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGhz5o2cWKc rant]], which also voices the entire fandom.
*** Doubling the amusement is that the extras don't even react. Only one looks up, shrugs, then gets back to work. Then the clip ends with her glaring maniacally at the camera.
** Chris Hemsworth [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkcht60wZvw fumbling to catch his hammer]] ''in slow-mo!'' This also features [[FunnyBackgroundEvent Chris Evans punching out invisible aliens like a crazy person.]]
*** This person captured it in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNvxFN4ji5A real time.]]
** Tom Hiddleston does a [[Literature/HarryPotter Severus Snape]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnr2kt_5lxI impression]].
** The OverlyLongGag of Mark Ruffalo [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=427odqGUbBE struggling to reset a prop]], while Robert Downey, Jr. heckles "Look out, actor on set!"
** The OverlyLongGag of Chris Evans failing to put on a parachute.
** The cast is filming the big argument scene, yet Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemwsworth clearly are just chatting friendly-like. Eventually Joss Whedon walks in and yells "STOP FIGHTING!"
** SamuelLJackson gets a moment to utter [[ActorAllusion his damn near]] [[PrecisionFStrike infamous favorite word]], and then we cut to Clark Gregg talking into his walkie talkie, "[[Film/PulpFiction I said what,]] [[BeamMeUpScotty motherfucker.]]"
** Tom Hiddleston lying in his own crater, attempting to make a wheezing noise [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iNII3eBmAY but only succeeding in making himself laugh.]]
** Jeremy Renner on his perch, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGF05ApsVHk talking about how he feels like Captain Kirk]]. "Hello? Is this ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}''?"
** Robert Downey, Jr. sassing his own AI. "JARVIS, don't ever talk to me when I'm off-camera."
** Clark Gregg decides to [[LampshadeHanging hang a lampshade]] on the accidental HoYay between Coulson and Steve [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0pMF_mQqfg so he reaches out and caresses his cheek]] during the plane scene. Chris Evans completely breaks down in laughter and Gregg admits he did it for the gag reel.
** In contrast, the ones where Robert Downey, Jr. slaps and pinches Mark Ruffalo on the ass (outtakes of the scene where Tony is poking Banner in the side with a pointy thing) are funny because Ruffalo manages to maintain the same reaction as the one Banner shows in the movie.
** Chris Evans' stunt double's incredibly epic fall when he attempts to swing from a tree branch and land in the forest clearing.
** The outtakes end on the shot of the Avengers staring at the oncoming Leviathan...and then Mark Ruffalo goes, [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere "DUDES, YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN!"]] and scurries off into the distance. Chris Evans bursts into a huge grin, Hemsworth gives his deep laugh, and Scarlett turns to watch him run right before the screen goes black. ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnIGdFk9R7Y Priceless]].'' He ''skips'' at the end too.
* In the Director's commentary,
** Whedon makes a long speech about how Captain America is [[HumbleHero a man of the people]] during his confrontation with Loki and the importance of having the {{muggles}} standing up one by one so he doesn't look like a hypocrite on account of being a SuperSoldier. Then Iron Man makes his [[BigEntrance big "Shoot to Thrill" entrance]].
-->'''Whedon''': Tony Stark, ''not'' a man of the people; he's [[ItsAllAboutMe a man of Tony Stark]].
** His commentary when Hawkeye shoots an arrow that hacks into the Helicarrier's computer.
--->'''Whedon:''' Yeah, it's a [[TrickArrow virus arrow]]. What? That could totally happen.
** Whedon admitting that Iron Man knocking Thor out of frame is a cheap joke, and then stating that he's going to do it four more times before the movie is over.
** Same thing with Hawkeye firing an arrow without looking and still hitting his target perfectly.
** Pointing out a [[http://i1100.photobucket.com/albums/g412/barretxiii/ScreenShot2014-03-19at11132PM_zps5ae8675f.png shot]] of Chris Evans' [[LanternJawOfJustice jaw]], claiming it as the reason he's a superhero while Whedon isn't.
** Whedon's comment about Harry Dean Stanton's cameo.
--->'''Whedon''': And now the Hulk has fallen into a Coen Brothers movie.
** Noting his tendency for WorldOfSnark, hence why he added some of the "Coulson is a fanboy" humor.
--->'''Whedon''': Everyone in this movie is a dry wit. It's like a desert of wit.
* The reveal that all the food Tony kept pulling out of nowhere was real--Downey kept getting snacky and hid snacks all over the set to compensate.
** Someone on tumblr outright calls him a squirrel for some added amusement.
* In a [[TearJerker mostly depressing]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pov4qMSfg9w deleted scene]] where Captain America discovers the fate of his WWII companions, the Creator/StanLee cameo suddenly brings it all back to hilarity.
-->'''Stan Lee:''' ''(regarding the waitress)'' [[ShipperOnDeck Ask for her number, ya moron!]]
** Also this exchange:
---> '''Waitress''': Also we've got free wireless.\\
'''Steve Rogers''': [[FishOutOfTemporalWater Radio?]] [[note]]try "wireless internet access."[[/note]]
* During the "Assembling a Universe" special, Clark Gregg talks about meeting with Whedon before filming, and having Whedon tell him that is character is basically TheHeart of the Avengers, and that his role is very important to the plot of the film. Gregg was flattered...until he [[OhCrap realizes]] that it's [[AnyoneCanDie Joss]] [[SacrificialLion Whedon]] telling him this.
