Wait!
– Peggy Carter
Go get him.
– Peggy Carter
I’m not kissing you.
– Col. Chester Phillips

Can I ask a question?
– Steve Rogers
Just one?
– Abraham Erskine
Why me?
– Steve Rogers
I suppose that’s the only question that matters.
– Abraham Erskine
This is from Augsburg, my city. So many people forget that the first country the Nazis invaded was their own. You know, after the last war, they… My people struggled. They… they felt weak… they felt small. Then Hitler comes along with the marching, and the big show, and the flags, and the, and the… and he… he hears of me, and my work, and he finds me, and he says “You.” He says “You will make us strong.” Well, I am not interested. So he sends the head of Hydra, his research division, a brilliant scientist by the name of Johann Schmidt. Now Schmidt is a member of the inner circle and he is ambitious. He and Hitler share a passion for occult power and Teutonic myth. Hitler uses his fantasies to inspire his followers, but for Schmidt, it is not fantasy. For him, it is real. He has become convinced that there is a great power hidden in the earth, left here by the gods, waiting to be seized by a superior man. So when he hears about my formula and what it can do, he cannot resist. Schmidt must become that superior man.
– Abraham Erskine
Did it make him stronger?
– Steve Rogers
Yeah, but… there were other… effects. The serum was not ready. But more important, the man. The serum amplifies everything that is inside, so good becomes great; bad becomes worse. This is why you were chosen. Because the strong man who has known power all his life, may lose respect for that power, but a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows… compassion.
– Abraham Erskine
Thanks. I think.
– Steve Rogers
Get it, get it. Whatever happens tomorrow, you must promise me one thing. That you will stay who you are, not a perfect soldier, but a good man.
– Abraham Erskine

It’s me. It’s Steve.
– Steve Rogers
Steve?
– James ‘Bucky’ Barnes
Come on.
– Steve Rogers
Steve.
– James ‘Bucky’ Barnes
I thought you were dead.
– Steve Rogers
I thought you were smaller.
– James ‘Bucky’ Barnes

Do you want to kill Nazis?
– Abraham Erskine
Is this a test?
– Steve Rogers
Yes.
– Abraham Erskine
I don’t want to kill anyone. I don’t like bullies; I don’t care where they’re from.
– Steve Rogers

What do you think?
– Steve Rogers
Yes. I think it works.
– Peggy Carter

You can’t give me orders!
– Peggy Carter
The hell I can’t! I’m a Captain!
– Steve Rogers

How do you feel?
– Peggy Carter
Taller.
– Steve Rogers

Wait. You know what you’re doing?
– Timothy ‘Dum Dum’ Dugan
Yeah. I knocked out Adolf Hitler over 200 times.
– Steve Rogers

No matter what lies Erskine told you, you see, I was his greatest success!
– Johann Schmidt
You don’t have one of those, do you?
– James ‘Bucky’ Barnes

Arrogance may not be a uniquely American trait, but I must say, you do it better than anyone. But there are limits to what even you can do, Captain, or did Erskine tell you otherwise?
– Red Skull
He told me you were insane.
– Steve Rogers
Ah. He resented my genius and tried to deny me what was rightfully mine, but he gave you everything. So, what made you so special?
– Red Skull
Nothing. I’m just a kid from Brooklyn.
– Steve Rogers

Fondue is just cheese and bread, my friend.
– Howard Stark

I know this neighborhood. I got beat up in that alley. And that parking lot. And behind that diner.

That wasn’t so bad.
– Steve Rogers
That was penicillin.
– Abraham Erskine

What happened to you?
– James ‘Bucky’ Barnes
I joined the Army.
– Steve Rogers

The moment you think you know what’s going on in a woman’s head is the moment your goose is well and truly cooked .

Go get him! I can swim.
– Boy at Dock

Base. Get me a line to the Colonel! I don’t care what time it is! This one’s waited long enough.
– SHIELD Lieutenant

Where are we going?
– Steve Rogers
The future.
– James ‘Bucky’ Barnes

You could have the power of the gods! Yet you wear a flag on your chest and think you fight a battle of nations! I have seen the future, Captain! There are no flags!
– Red Skull
Not my future!
– Captain America

Did it hurt?
– James ‘Bucky’ Barnes
A little.
– Steve Rogers
Is this permanent?
– James ‘Bucky’ Barnes
So far.
– Steve Rogers

You’re late.
– Peggy Carter
I couldn’t call my ride.
– Steve Rogers

I had some ideas about the uniform.
– Steve Rogers
Whatever you want, pal.
– Howard Stark
