The Reason You Suck Speech / Marvel Cinematic Universe

Go To

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has a lot of places where someone chews out someone else. Here are several of them.


Do you really think that just because you have an idea, it belongs to you? Your father, he helped give us the atomic bomb. Now what kind of world would it be today if he was as selfish as you?
Obadiah Stane to Tony Stark, Iron Man

Justin Hammer: Hey, there he is! It's the bird man. Now you like the bird. Is that right? Is that your bird? I'm confused. You said it wasn't, but now it looks like you're best of pals. You love that bird, don't you? You know what? [To the guards] Take the bird.
Ivan Vanko: Hey!
Justin Hammer: Take his pillows, too. Both of them. And his shoes. Take his shoes. I took your stuff. How does that make you feel? You feel bad? Good. 'CAUSE THAT'S HOW I FEEL! We had a contract! I saved your life, and you give me suits! That was our deal. And you did not deliver. I don't know if you're a genius or a fraud. I don't know what you are. [Beat] Something really, really great fell into my lap. And if it hadn't, I'd be at your mercy tonight. Now I have a piece of Stark tech that I pimped out myself. And now your overpriced paperweights are gonna look like a backdrop to my demonstration. Do you dig what I'm getting at here?
Ivan Vanko: Слишком много говоришь.note 
Justin Hammer: [Sarcastic laugh] I don't know if you know this, BUT I DON'T SPEAK RUSSIAN! I'm gonna leave now. I'm gonna go to the Expo. Maybe I'll even get laid. You see these guys? They're your babysitters. They are not to be trifled with. When I get back, we're gonna renegotiate the terms of our agreement. And you're gonna make good on our arrangement because if you don't, you're gonna be exactly what you were when I found you: a dead man. You got that?

Thor: Why did you bring us back?
Odin: Do you realize what you've done? What you've started?
Thor: I was protecting my home.
Odin: You cannot even protect your friends! How can you hope to protect a kingdom? Get him to the healing room! Now!
Thor: There won't be a kingdom to protect if you're afraid to act! The Jotunns must learn to fear me, just as they once feared you.
Odin: That's pride and vanity talking, not leadership! You've forgotten everything I taught you about a warrior's patience.
Thor: While you wait, and be patient, the Nine Realms laugh at us! The old ways are done. You'd stand giving speeches while Asgard falls!
Thor: And you are an old man and a FOOL!
Odin: [Long pause, saddened] Yes. I was a fool... to think you were ready.
Loki: Father...
Odin: Heurrrgh! [Loki backs off, stunned.] Thor... Odinson... you have betrayed the express command of your king. Through your arrogance and stupidity, you have opened these peaceful realms and innocent lives to the horror and desolation of war! You are unworthy of these realms; unworthy of your title; you are unworthy... of the loved ones you have betrayed. I now take from you your power! In the name of my father, and his father before — I, Odin Allfather, cast you out!

SS Officer 1: The Führer is not accustomed to being ignored, Herr Schmidt. He funds your research because you promised him weapons.
SS Officer 2: You serve at his pleasure. He gave you this facility as a reward for your... injuries.
Johann Schmidt: A reward?! Call it what it is... exile! I no longer reflect his vision of Aryan perfection!
SS Officer 1: You think this is about appearances? Your HYDRA division has failed to produce so much as a rifle in over a year, and we have learned through local intelligence you had mounted a full-scale incursion into Norway!
SS Officer 2: The Führer feels — how does he put it? The Red Skull has been indulged long enough!
Johann Schmidt: Gentlemen, you have come to see the results of our work. Let me show you. [Shows them to his lab.] Hitler speaks of a Thousand-Year Reich, but he cannot feed his armies for a month. His troops spill their blood across every field in Europe, but still he is no closer to achieving his goals. [Pulls sheet off Tesseract-powered laser cannon.]
SS Officer 1: And I suppose you still aim to win this war through magic?
Johann Schmidt: Science. But I understand your confusion. Great power has always baffled primitive men. HYDRA is assembling an arsenal to destroy my enemies in one stroke, wherever they are, regardless of how many forces they possess, all in a matter of hours.
SS Officer 2: Your enemies?
Johann Schmidt: My weapons contain enough destructive power to decimate every hostile capital on Earth. Quite simply, gentlemen, I have harnessed the power of the gods.
SS Officer 2: Thank you, Schmidt.
Johann Schmidt: For what?
SS Officer 2: For making it clear how obviously mad you are.

Black Widow: I've got red in my ledger. I'd like to wipe it out.
Loki: [mirthlessly smiles and chuckles to himself] Can you? Can you wipe out that much red? Dreykov's daughter, São Paulo, the hospital fire? Barton told me everything. Your ledger is dripping, it's gushing red... and you think saving a man no more virtuous than yourself will change anything? This is the basest sentimentality. This is a child at prayer — PATHETIC! You lie and kill in the service of liars and killers. You pretend to be separate, to have your own code... something that makes up for the horrors. But they are a part of you, and they will never go away. [slams glass, making Natascha flinch back] I won't touch Barton. Not until I make him kill you. Slowly, intimately... in every way he knows you fear. He'll wake just long enough to see his good work, and when he screams, I'll split his skull! THIS IS MY BARGAIN, YOU MEWLING QUIM!

Steve Rogers: Yeah, big man in a suit of armor. Take that off, what are you?
Tony Stark: Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.
Steve Rogers: I know guys with none of that worth ten of you. I've seen the footage. The only thing you really fight for is yourself. You're not the guy to make the sacrifice play, to lay down on a wire and let the other guy crawl over you.
Tony Stark: I think I would just cut the wire.
Steve Rogers: Always a way out. You know, you may not be a threat, but you better stop pretending to be a hero.
Tony Stark: A hero? Like you? You're a laboratory experiment, Rogers. Everything special about you came from out of a bottle.

A true story about fortune cookies. They look Chinese. They sound... Chinese. But they're actually an American invention. Which is why they're hollow, full of lies, and leave a bad taste in the mouth. [Smashes fortune cookies on the table with his fist.] My disciples just destroyed another cheap American knockoff: the Chinese Theatre. Mr. President, I know this must be getting frustrating, but this season of terror is drawing to a close. And don't worry. The 'Big One' is coming: your graduation.
The Mandarin, Iron Man 3

Loki: I really don't see what all the fuss is about...
Odin: Do you not truly feel the gravity of your crimes? Wherever you go there is war, ruin and death!
Loki: I went down to Midgard to rule the people of Earth as a benevolent God, just like you.
Odin: We are not gods. We're born, we live, we die, just as humans do.
Loki: Give or take five thousand years.
Odin: All this because Loki desires a throne...
Loki: It is my birthright!
Odin: Your birthright was to DIE! As a child, cast out on a frozen rock. If I had not taken you in, you would not be here now, to hate me.
Loki: If I'm for the axe, then for mercy's sake, just swing it. It's not that I don't like our little talks, it's just... I don't love them.
Odin: Frigga is the only reason you're still alive, and you will never see her again. You'll spend the rest of your days in the dungeons.
Loki: And what of Thor? You'll make that witless oaf King while I rot in chains?
Odin: Thor must strive to undo the damage you have done. He will bring order to the Nine Realms, and then... yes, he will be King!

Colonel Nick Fury: These new long range precision guns can eliminate a thousand hostiles a minute. The satellites can read a terrorist's DNA before he steps outside his spider hole. We're gonna neutralize a lot of threats before they even happen.
Steve Rogers: I thought the punishment usually came after the crime.
Nick Fury: We can't afford to wait that long.
Steve Rogers: Who's "we"?
Nick Fury: After New York, I convinced the World Security Council we needed a quantum surge in threat analysis. For once we're way ahead of the curve.
Steve Rogers: By holding a gun at everyone on Earth and calling it protection.
Nick Fury: [Beat] You know, I read those SSR files. "Greatest Generation"? You guys did some nasty stuff.
Steve Rogers: Yeah, we compromised. Sometimes in ways that made us not sleep so well. But we did it so the people could be free. This isn't freedom, this is fear.
Nick Fury: S.H.I.E.L.D. takes the world as it is, not as we'd like it to be. And it's getting damn near past time for you to get with that program, Cap.
Steve Rogers: Don't hold your breath.

Nick Fury: We have to assume everyone aboard those carriers is HYDRA. We have to get past them, insert these server blades. And maybe, just maybe, we can salvage what's left...
Steve Rogers: We're not salvaging anything. We're not just taking down the carriers, Nick. We're taking down S.H.I.E.L.D..
Nick Fury: S.H.I.E.L.D. had nothing to do with this.
Steve Rogers: You gave me this mission. This is how it ends. S.H.I.E.L.D.'s been compromised. You said so yourself. HYDRA grew right under your nose and nobody noticed.
Nick Fury: Why do you think we're meeting in this cave? I noticed.
Steve Rogers: How many paid the price before you did?
Nick Fury: Look, I didn't know about Barnes...
Steve Rogers: Even if you had, would you have told me? Or would you have compartmentalized that, too? S.H.I.E.L.D., HYDRA, it all goes.

The only matter I do not take seriously, boy, is you. Your politics bore me; your demeanor is that of a pouty child; and apparently, you alienated my favorite daughter, Gamora. I shall honor our agreement, Kree, if you bring me the Orb. But return to me again empty-handed, and I will BATHE the starways in your blood!
Thanos to Ronan the Accuser, Guardians of the Galaxy

I'm sorry. I know you mean well. You just didn't think it through. You want to protect the world, but you don't want it to change. How is humanity saved, if it's not allowed to...evolve? With these? These puppets? There's only one path to peace: the Avengers' extinction.

Do you see the beauty of it? The inevitability? You rise, only to fall. You, Avengers, you are my meteor. My swift and terrible sword and the Earth will crack with the weight of your failure. Purge me from your computers; turn my own flesh against me. It means nothing! For when the dust settles, the only thing left will be metal.

Hank Pym: Stark.
Howard Stark: He doesn't seem happy... Hello, Hank. You're supposed to be in Moscow.
Hank Pym: I took a detour. [Takes a Pym Particle vial and puts it on the desk.] Through your defense lab.
Peggy Carter: Tell me that isn't what I think it is.
Hank Pym: That depends if you think it's a poor attempt to replicate my work. Even for this group, that takes nerve.
Mitchell Carson: You were instructed to go to Russia. May I remind you, Dr. Pym, that you're a soldier?
Hank Pym: I'm a scientist.
Howard Stark: Then act like one! The Pym Particle is the most revolutionary science ever developed, help us put it to good use.
Hank Pym: I let you turn me into your errand boy, and now you try to steal my research?
Mitchell Carson: If only you'd protected Janet with such ferocity, Dr. Pym.
[Stark closes his eyes in disgust; Pym takes a moment to control himself before he slams Carson's head into the desk.]
Peggy Carter: [Intervening] Easy, Hank!
Hank Pym: You mention my wife again, and I'll show you ferocity!
[Carson looks to Stark for support.]
Howard Stark: Don't look at me. You said it.
Hank Pym: I formally tender my resignation.
Howard Stark: We don't accept it, formally. Hank, we need you. The Pym Particle is a miracle. Please, don't let your past determine the future.
Hank Pym: As long as I am alive, nobody will ever get that formula. [Turns around and leaves.]

Clint Barton: [Sarcastic Clapping] The futurist, gentleman! The futurist is here! He sees all. He knows what's best for you, whether you like it or not.
Tony Stark: Give me a break, Barton. I had no idea they'd put you here, come on.
Clint: [Spiteful Spit] Yeah, well you knew they'd put us somewhere, Tony.
Tony: Yeah, but not some super max, floating-ocean pokey. You know, this place is for maniacs, this isn't a place for...
Clint: Criminals? Criminals, Tony. I think that's the word you're looking for. Right? That didn't use to mean me. Or Sam, or Wanda. But here we are.
Tony: 'Cause you broke the law.
Clint: Yeah.
Tony: I didn't make it. You read it, you broke it.
Clint: The law, the law, the law.
Tony: All right? You're all grown up, you got a wife and kids. I don't understand, why didn't you think about them before you chose the wrong side?
Clint: You gotta watch your back with this guy. [Angrily slams on the glass] There's a chance he's gonna break it.
Scott Lang: Hank Pym always said you never can trust a Stark.
Tony: [Baffled] Who are you?
Scott: Come on, man!

Vengeance has consumed you. It's consuming them. I am done letting it consume me. Justice will come soon enough.

The Ancient One: I've spent so many year peering through time, looking at this exact moment. But I can't see past it. I've prevented countless terrible futures and after each one there's always another, and they all lead here but never further.
Dr. Stephen Strange: You think this is where you die.
The Ancient One: You wonder what I see in your future?
Dr. Stephen Strange: No. Yes.
The Ancient One: I never saw your future, only its possibilities. You have such a capacity for goodness. You've always excelled, but not because you crave success but because of your fear of failure.
Dr. Stephen Strange: It's what made me a great doctor.
The Ancient One: It's precisely what's kept you from greatness. Arrogance and fear still keep you from learning the simplest and most significant lesson of all.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Which is?
The Ancient One: It's not about you!

Stakar Ogord: I don't gotta listen to nothing! You betrayed the code! Ravagers don't deal in kids.
Yondu Udonta: I told you before... I didn't know what was going on!
Stakar Ogord: You didn't know, 'cause you didn't wanna know, 'cause it made you rich.
Yondu Udonta: I demand a seat at the table! I wear these flames, same as you!
Stakar Ogord: You may dress like us, but you'll never hear the Horns of Freedom when you die, Yondu. And the colors of Ogord... will never flash over your grave. [Beat] If you think I take pleasure in exiling you... You're wrong. You broke all our hearts.

Yondu Udonta: What the hell you doin', boy?!
Rocket Raccoon: I could tell by how you talked about him, this Ego is bad news. We're here to save Quill.
Yondu Udonta: For what, huh? For honor? For love?
Rocket Raccoon: No, I don't care about those things. I wanna save Quill so I can prove I'm better than him! I can lord this over him forever. [Yondu laughs scornfully.] What are you laughin' at me for?
Yondu Udonta: You can fool yourself and everyone else, but you can't fool me. I know who you are.
Rocket Raccoon: You don't know anything about me, loser.
Yondu Udonta: I know everything about you! I know you play like you're the meanest and the hardest, but actually you're the most scared of all.
Rocket Raccoon: ...Shut up!
Yondu Udonta: I know you steal batteries you don't need and you push away anyone who's willing to put up with you because just a little bit of love reminds you of how big and empty that hole inside you actually is.
Rocket Raccoon: I said shut up!
Yondu Udonta: I know them scientists what made you never gave a rat's ass about you.
Rocket Raccoon: I'm serious, dude!
Yondu Udonta: Just like my own damn parents who sold me, their own little baby, into slavery! I know who you are boy, because you're me!
Rocket Raccoon: What kind of a pair are we?

Tony Stark: Previously on "Peter Screws the Pooch", I told you to stay away from this. Instead, you hacked a multi-million dollar suit so you could sneak around behind my back doing the one thing I told you not to do.
Peter Parker: Is everyone okay?
Tony Stark: No thanks to you.
Peter Parker: "No thanks to me"!? Those weapons were out there and I tried to tell you about it, but you didn't listen! None of this would've happened if you had just listened to me! If you even cared, you'd actually be here.
[Tony emerges from the suit, much to Peter's shock]
Tony Stark: I did listen, kid. Who do you think called the FBI, huh? Do you know that I was the only one who believed in you? Everyone else said I was crazy to recruit a 14-year-old kid.
Peter Parker: I'm 15.
Tony Stark: No, this is where you zip it, alright?! The adult is talking! What if somebody had died tonight? Different story, right? Cause that's on you! And if you died... I feel like that's on me. I don't need that on my conscience.
Peter Parker: Yes, sir. I–I'm sorry.
Tony Stark: "Sorry" doesn't cut it.
Peter Parker: I understand. I just– I just wanted to be like you.
Tony Stark: And I wanted you to be better. [Beat] Okay, it's not working out. I'm gonna need the suit back.
Peter Parker: For how long?
Tony Stark: Forever.
[Peter starts to cry]
Tony Stark: Yeah, that's how it works.
Peter Parker: No, no, no, no! Please, please, please!
Tony Stark: Let's have it.
Peter Parker: You don't understand! Please, this is all I have! I'm nothing without this suit!
Tony Stark: If you're nothing without this suit, then you shouldn't have it, okay? God, I sound like my dad.
Peter Parker: ...I don't have any other clothes.
Tony Stark: Okay, we'll sort that out.

Loki: Would you say something? [Thor just stares ahead] Say something!
Thor: What would you like me to say? You faked your own death, you stole the throne, stripped Odin of his power, stranded him on Earth — to die, releasing the Goddess of Death. Have I said enough, or do you want me to go further back than the past two days?

Oh, that looks painful. Dear brother, you're becoming predictable. I trust you, you betray me, round and round in circles we go. See, Loki, life is about growth, it's about change, but you just seem to want to stay the same! I guess what I'm trying to say is, you'll always be the God of Mischief... but you could be more.
Thor to Loki, Thor: Ragnarok

Thanos: Everyone in the galaxy knows you'd sell your own brother if you thought it would add the slightest trinket to your pathetic collection. I know you have the Reality Stone, Tivan. Giving it to me will spare you a great deal of suffering. [He presses his foot on the Collector's chest.]
The Collector: I told you, I sold it! Why would I lie?
Thanos: I imagine it's like breathing for you.
The Collector: Like suicide.
Thanos: So you do understand. Not even you would surrender something so precious.
The Collector: I didn’t know what it was!
Thanos: Then you're more of a fool than I took you for. Last chance, charlatan: Where's the stone?

All my life, I dreamed of a day, a moment, when you got what you deserved. And I was always so disappointed. But now you kill and torture, and you call it mercy. The universe has judged you. You asked it for a prize and it told you no. You failed. And do you wanna know why? Because you love nothing. No one!
Gamora to Thanos, Avengers: Infinity War

Don't condescend, Hank. You're the one who's on the run from the FBI. All because you had to grow to a size that finally fit your ego.
Bill Foster to Hank Pym, Ant-Man and the Wasp

The Supreme Intelligence: You did good, ace. Thanks to you, those insidious shapeshifters will threaten our borders no more.
Carol Danvers: I used to believe your lies, but the Skrulls are just fighting for a home. You're talking about destroying them because they won't submit to your rule. And neither will I.
The Supreme Intelligence: We found you. We embraced you as our own.
Carol Danvers: You stole me! From my home, my family, my friends!
The Supreme Intelligence: It's cute how hard you try. Remember... without us... you're weak. You're flawed. Helpless. We saved you. Without us... you're only human.

Tony Stark: I saw this coming a few years back, I had a vision, but I didn't want to believe it. Now it's true.
Steve Rogers: Tony, I'm going to need you to focus...
Tony Stark: I needed you, as in past tense. That trumps what you need. It's too late, buddy. Sorry. You know what I need? You know what I need? I need a shave. I don't believe I ever remember telling you this...
James Rhodes: Tony, Tony...
Tony Stark: What we needed was a suit of armor around the world! Remember that? Whether it impacted our precious freedoms or not, that's what we needed!
Steve Rogers: Well, that didn't work out, did it?
Tony Stark: I said we'd lose. You said, "we'll do that together too." Guess what, Cap? We lost, and you weren't there. But that's what we do, right? Our best work after the fact? We're the Avengers? Not the Prevengers, right?
James Rhodes: Okay, you made your point, Just sit down, okay?
Tony Stark: No, no, here's my biggest point, he said...
James Rhodes: Just sit down, okay?
Tony Stark: (Points to Carol Danvers) We need you, you're new blood. Bunch of tired old wheels! I got nothin' for you, Cap! I've got no coordinates, no clues, no strategies, no options! Zero, zip, nada. No trust - liar!
[Rips off his arc reactor]
Tony Stark: Here, take this. You'll find him, if you put that on. You hide...
[Tony collapses mid sentence.]

Spider-Man: I know this isn't real!
Mysterio: Do you? I don't think you know what's real, Peter. You need to wake up! I mean look at yourself. You are just a scared little kid in a sweatsuit! I created Mysterio to give the world someone to believe in! I control the truth! Mysterio is the truth! If you were good enough, maybe Tony would still be alive. Deep down, you know I'm right. You made your choice. And all you had to do was step aside. And now, you hav- (gets cut off by being "shot" by "Nick Fury")
Spider-Man: Fury!
"Fury": Beck's people are trying to find anyone who could expose him. Who'd you tell?
Spider-Man: Um...
"Fury": I know you told someone. Just tell me. Who did you tell? WHO ELSE DID YOU TELL?!
Spider-Man: Uh, just Ned and MJ from my class! Maybe Ned told his girlfriend Betty, but that's it! ("Fury" starts laughing) What?
"Fury": You. Are so gullible.
Spider-Man: What?!
"Fury": I mean you're smart as a whip, just a (Beck's voice) sucker. (illusion dissipates, revealing him to be Beck)
Beck: Now all your friends have to die. It's easy to fool people when they're already fooling themselves.

Natasha: Shut up! You are an idiot. And you’re a coward. You’re a coward. And our family was never real, so there’s nothing to hold on to. We’re moving on.

Shang-Chi: She was gone and we needed you. But you chose those damn rings over us. You trained your son to be a killer. Is this what you wanted? Even if you could bring her back, what makes you think she’d want anything to do with you?

Sersi: He lied to us. He already knew about the emergence.
Kingo: No, he didn’t.
Ikaris: Ajak told me everything when we left Babylon.
Kingo: What?
Phastos: You were never gonna let us stop the emergence.
Ikaris: No. I only wanted to protect you from the Deviants.
Sersi: If Ajak wanted you to take her place, why did she choose me? What have you done?
Druig: He killed her.
Ikaris: I had to.
Sersi: She loved you.
Ikaris: Did she?
Sersi: She loved you.
Ikaris: Do you think it was easy to live with the truth? To know that one day all this would end? To keep on lying to you? If we gave humanity the choice, how many of them would be willing to die so that billions more could be born?
Phastos: We’re not giving them a choice. Is this why you’re willing to kill? You are so pathetic!

Green Goblin: "No more darker half" - did you REALLY think I'd let that happen? That I'd let you take away my power just because you're blind to what true power can bring you?!
Spider-Man: You don't know me.
Green Goblin: Don't I? (Aunt May prepares the serum) I saw how she trapped you. Fighting her holy moral mission. We don't need you to save us. We don't need to be fixed! These are not curses. They're gifts.
Doctor Octopus: Norman, no!
Green Goblin: Quiet, lapdog.
Spider-Man: You don't know what you're talking about.
Green Goblin: I've watched you from deep behind Norman's cowardly eyes. Struggling to have everything YOU want, while the world tries to make you choose. Gods don't have to choose. We take.

Live-Action TV

You want to talk about that "other world", as you call it? It's the real world. Here, you're just a snippet of code that Aida changed slightly so you'd stick around for Fitz. You may be part of his life here, but there, Alistair Fitz is so thick he doesn't recognise his own son's genius. He's a pathetic drunk. Even here, you're nothing without him. So do what you will; I've got nothing left to give. You'll be a disappointment to your son yet again.
Holden Radcliffe, to Alistair Fitz, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., "All the Madame's Men"

Foggy Nelson: Marci? [Sigh] Convincing my client to agree to your terms? That's your job, and I'm not going to do it for you. See, you think there are only two options: These tenants take the payout and leave, or leave without taking it. But given how long they've put up with Tully's bullshit, I think you're actually afraid that Mrs. Cardenas and her neighbors will find a way to eke by. And short of physically and very illegally forcing tenants from their rent-controlled homes, Armand Tully loses his condos. Your firm loses Tully. And that's very bad for business. You want me and my client to think that you're doing us a favor, that we have no leverage. When really, we have all of it. So you're gonna see us in court where I will absolutely dismantle you, from the top of your salon blowout to the bottom of your overpriced pumps.
Marci Stahl: You would've killed it here, Foggy Bear. You never should have left.
Foggy Nelson: You never should have signed on, Marce. You were really something, back in the day. When you had a soul.

I know who you are, Mr. Fisk. You are a wolf too. Men like you took away my family, took my ability to love and almost took my life. You will take nothing more.
—Esther Falb to Wilson Fisk after refusing his offers to buy a painting taken from her family by the Nazis, Daredevil (2015), "Reunion"

Jessica Jones: Look, you're obviously pissed off about something, but I'm pretty sure for the first time this has nothing to do with Kilgrave — he's smarter than you two.
Audrey Eastman: Kilgrave? Who's Kilgrave? Is he another one of you people? How many more are there like you?!
Jessica Jones: How many more what, private eyes?
Audrey Eastman: "Gifted". *Scoff* Stupid word. It's like... calling someone "special". You're not "special", you're retarded. You're not "gifted", you're a freak.
Jessica Jones: What have we, or the mentally challenged, ever done to you?
Audrey Eastman: You "saved the city". That's what the newspapers said. You were heroes.
Jessica Jones: Not me...
Audrey Eastman: The city was saved... But I was there. I saw what really happened... I saw my mother crushed to death under a building that you people destroyed.
Jessica Jones: ...In the Incident?
Audrey Eastman: I was trying to pull my mother out from the rubble, watching her bleed to death... [sniffs] While all around me, you people were raining down hell!
Jessica Jones: So go after the big green guy, or the flag waverI wasn't even there!
Audrey Eastman: Consider it a preventative measure for next time! [She advances towards Jessica, who immediately pulls the plastic sheet from under her, causing her to fall to the ground.]
Jessica Jones: You think you're the only ones who've lost people? You think you're the only ones with pain? You think you can take your shit and dump it on me? You don't get to do that! So you take your goddamn pain and live with it, assholes! You lost your parents? Welcome to the goddamn club! I lost mine in some random accident! Do you see me trying to kill every shitty driver?! NO! Because I don't work my shit out on other people! So keep your goddamn feelings to YOURSELF!
[Jessica comes down from her rage]
Jessica Jones: Ninety-nine. You wanted to know how many of us there are? The last time I counted, I had ninety-nine Gifted friends. In this borough alone. And now, every single one of them is going to know about the shit you tried to pull...and they hate attempted murder, they really do. The cops hate it too, you know, because it's against the law.

Hernan "Shades" Alvarez: Do you remember me? From when I was a kid?
Mariah Dillard: No. Are you one of those that used to follow Cornell around like a puppy?
Hernan "Shades" Alvarez: Hmm. I didn't have shit. I grew up in the street. But the one name that always rang out was "Stokes." You needed a Thanksgiving turkey? "Go see Mama Mabel Stokes." School clothes? "Mama Mabel Stokes." Your old man put his hands on you? "See Mama Mabel Stokes and it would never, ever happen again."
Mariah Dillard: Your point?
Hernan "Shades" Alvarez: Your family name meant something! Harlem's Paradise meant something! Everyone from David Dinkins to Pappy Mason showed that woman love. But what does that family represent now? A washed-up gangsterling? An empty politician who'll be lucky, at this time next year, to be a greeter at the Harlem Hair Expo?
[Furious, Mariah tries to swing at Shades, but he catches her hand and locks it in a vice grip]
Mariah Dillard: You don't talk to me like that.
Hernan "Shades" Alvarez: I can talk to you any way I want! Because you've got no power to shut me up. Do you like how it feels? Being so powerless? Being pushed around by other people?
Mariah Dillard: What do you think?
Hernan "Shades" Alvarez: I think, that when you get the nerve, you're gonna be surprised. At just what you're capable of.

Claire Temple: Are you uncomfortable?
Madame Gao: What difference would it make? You will not untie me.
Claire Temple: You're right, I was just trying to be polite. I won't make that mistake again.
Madame Gao: Regret hovers about everything you do. Am I wrong?
Claire Temple: You don't know anything about me.
Madame Gao: You often find yourself fraternizing with people with gifts. Daredevil, Luke Cage, Danny Rand. You secretly hope that the thing that makes them special will rub off on you, but it hasn't, and you have failed each of them in different ways.
Claire Temple: Bullshit! I helped them all. When they were beaten up and bleeding and looking for help, they came to me.
Madame Gao: But where do they all end up? Ruined. And the only thing they have in common is you.
Claire Temple: First you wouldn't talk, now you won't shut up.
Madame Gao: You are looking for who you want to be, searching for your destiny. But it's selfish of you to involve Danny in your quest. He has greater problems to deal with. If you were going to be special, it would have already happened. The only thing that can come out of this for you is sorrow, heartbreak and pain. Sometimes the strongest thing you can do is leave. Danny would understand that.

Matt Murdock: Mr. Berkowitz, in your professional opinion, was it good for Aaron James?
Mr. Berkowitz: Our sympathies go out to the family. The whole thing... it's very unfortunate.
Matt Murdock: Were you aware the products used in your new station were hazardous to children?
Defense Attorney: Objection!
Matt Murdock: I'll rephrase. What was attractive about Endexoprene?
Mr. Berkowitz: It's strong. It's durable.
Matt Murdock: And half the price?
Mr. Berkowitz: Well, I do run a business.
Matt Murdock: Is it worth endangering people in the interest of saving money?
Mr. Berkowitz: All materials are tested. The moment those findings were made public, our company replaced that mortar in all remaining stations.
Matt Murdock: "Made public." What do you mean? Are you referring to a report released on September 29th?
Defense Attorney: Your Honor, he's asking my client to respond with unreasonable specificity.
Matt Murdock: Mr. Berkowitz, if memory serves me right, your office received an urgent delivery from the Safety Commission on June 3rd. Three months earlier. I'm curious, did that have anything to do with Endexoprene?
Mr. Berkowitz: I don't know anything about that.
Defense Attorney: Your Honor, unless Mr. Murdock can prove my client actually received these hypothetical documents, then-
Matt Murdock: It's not about whether he received them. It's whether he willfully ignored them. Your Honor, I ask that this record of delivery be admitted into evidence.
Mr. Berkowitz: [stammering] I mean, I get a lot of those.
Matt Murdock: What would you say is worse? Ignoring data in the interest of cutting costs? Or neglecting to supply the court with records that might prove you purposely put people in danger? Including- including this young man, Aaron James, who might never walk again.
Defense Attorney: Your Honor, we would like a recess.
Matt Murdock: [Scoff] No need. I'm done, and I think he is, too.
The Defenders (2017), "The H Word"

Vision: I spoke with Norm.
Wanda: Oh?
Vision: I unearthed the man's suppressed personality and I spoke to him free of your oversight. He was in pain, Wanda.
Wanda: Vision... -Listen, can we just...
Vision: What? Watch TV? Turn in for the night so that you can change everything over again? No, Wanda. You can't control me the way you do them.
Wanda: Can't I? I'm going to bed.
Vision: No! We're not done here. What is the "Maximoff Anomaly"?
Wanda: The what?
Vision: I have to believe that this, whatever this is, was subconscious at first and that you only recently became aware of it.
Wanda: Aware of what?
Vision: Norm has a family, Wanda. He has a family, and he can't reach them. Because you won't let him reach them!
Wanda: I don't know what you're talking about!
Vision: Stop lying to me!
Wanda: This, all of this is for us. So let me handle it.
Vision: What is outside of Westview?
Wanda: You don't wanna know, I promise you.
Vision: You don't get to make that choice for me, Wanda!
Wanda: You've never talked to me like this before.
Vision: Before what? Before what? I can't remember my life before Westview. I don't know who I am! I'm scared!
Wanda: You are my husband. You are Tommy and Billy's father. Isn't that enough?
Vision: Wanda, why are there no other children in Westview?
Wanda: Oh, God! There are! Just stop it!
Vision:No. No. The playground stands empty every morning I walk to work. Why? Tell me why?
Wanda: Do you really think that I am controlling everything? That I am somehow in charge of everybody in Westview? I'm walking their dogs, mowing their lawns, getting them to dentist appointments on time? I mean, I... I don't know how any of this started in the first place.
Vision: Wanda, what you're doing here, it's wrong.
Wanda: I...
Vision: It is wrong.
Vision to Wanda Maximoff', WandaVision''

John Walker: All right. That’s it. Let’s go. I’m now ordering you to turn him over.
Sam Wilson: Hey, slow your roll. Shield or no shield, the only thing you’re runnin’ in here is your mouth. Now, I had Karli and you overstepped. He’s actually proven himself useful today.
Sam Wilson to John Walker, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier''

You conniving, craven pathetic worm. You did this. I hope you know you deserve to be alone, and you always will be.
Lady Sif to Loki, Loki (2021)

Kate Bishop: Are you okay?
Eleanor: I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry, baby. We're gonna put all this behind us. You'll see. Okay? It will all go back to normal.
Kate Bishop: It's never been normal, Mom. I think part of me has always known that.
Eleanor: Honey, this was just an unfortunate arrangement. And it's over.
Kate Bishop: Killing Armand? Hiring an assassin to kill Clint? Framing your own fiancé? That's an unfortunate arrangement?
Eleanor: Yes, sweetie. That's how the world works. I've protected you from it. You may not have known what was going on, but I did it for you. I know what it's like to have nothing. And you can't handle it.
Kate Bishop: How do you know what I can handle?
Eleanor: Because I know you. And I know that you think that you can live life without consequences, just like your father. But someone has to clean things up. Someone has to take responsibility.
Kate Bishop:You're right.
Kate Bishop to Eleanor, Hawkeye (2021)

Western Animation

Strange Supreme: You... You can stop this. Please... Fix this.
Uatu: The same way you "fixed" Christine?
Strange Supreme: I was wrong. I-
Uatu: You were warned.
Strange Supreme: I know. But the world! The world shouldn't pay for my arrogance. I read about you. Sensed your presence. You're a god. You can undo this.
Uatu: I'm not a god, and neither are you.
Strange Supreme: Then punish me. Not the world, not Christine.
Uatu: Honestly, if I could fix this, if I could punish you instead, I would. But I can't interfere. You, more than anyone else, should understand that meddling with time and events only leads to more destruction.
Stephen Strange: No... NOOOOOO!!!!! I didn't mean for this to happen!
