"HULK STRONGEST ONE THERE IS!"
"Bah! If puny god is all that makes ground shake, Hulk will climb to top of mountain - and make god stop!"
—Hulk, Incredible Hulk 202
"Even now, I can feel it. Buried somewhere deep inside. Watching me. Waiting. But you know what scares me the most? When I can't fight it anymore, when it takes over, when I totally lose control..."
"My son is...unique. And because he is unique, the world will not tolerate his existence."
— David Banner, Hulk 2003
"I've been alone for a long time. Not because I want to be, but because until I solve this problem, I have to be."
— Bruce Banner, The Incredible Hulk 2008 trailer
Tony Stark: It's good to meet you, Doctor Banner. Your work on anti-electron collisions is unparalleled - and I'm a huge fan of the way you lose control and turn into an enormous green rage-monster.
Loki: I am a GOD, you dull creature, and I will not be bullied by -
(five seconds of utterly one-sided asskicking)
Hulk: ...Puny god.

Janitor: So, which one is it? Are you a big guy that gets all little, or a little guy that, uh, sometimes blows up large?
Bruce: You know - I'm not even sure.

"There you are, Banner. Weak. Soft. You let the old man scream at you. You let the pretty girl walk away. You hide in your work. And what kind of work is that? You're a genius. You could do anything. But you make bombs. Don't seem to get it, do you? Look at you. Playing the hero. Risking your life to save some stupid kid. But if you're so smart ... why didn't you just stop the countdown from the bunker? And as gamma radiation seeps into every cell in your body ... you scream. For hours. And what's running through your head all that time? Same thing as always. Daddy beating Bruce. Daddy killing mommy. And little Bruce finally hitting back ... and killing daddy. Stupid kid. Buzzing around like an insect ... but you can't shut him up. Can't ever let yourself go. Until now. Of course, you'll hate yourself tomorrow. But you don't have to. You can just hate the Hulk. That's why you made me, isn't it?"
