Scott Lang: [Surrounded by police] Wait I didn't steal anything! I was returning something I stole!

Scott Lang: [Demonstrating his Ant-Man suit to his crew for the first time] Now, look. This is gonna get weird, all right? It's pretty freaky, but it's safe. There's no reason to be scared.

Luis: Oh, no no. Daddy don't get scared.

Scott Lang: Really?

Luis: Yeah.

Scott Lang: Good.

[Closes his helmet and pushes the button that shrinks him]

Kurt: [Gasps, jumps out of chair] This is the work of gypsies!

Dave: That's witchcraft!

Luis: [Keeping his cool] That's amazing. That's like some David Copperfield shit!

Dave: That's wizardry!

Kurt: Sorcery!

Luis: How'd you do that, bro?

Scott Lang: Don't freak out, look at your shoulder.

Luis: [Looks at his shoulder, starts screaming, and runs out of the room] Get if off! Get it off!

Scott Lang: I thought Daddy didn't get scared!

Cassie Lang: Are you trying to find my daddy?

Paxton: Uh, yeah I am, sweetheart. I just want your daddy to be safe.

Cassie Lang: Hope you don't catch him.

Scott Lang: My days of breaking into places and stealing shit are over! What do you need me to do?

Hank Pym: ...I want you to break into a place and steal some shit.

Scott Lang: ...makes sense.

[from trailer]

Hank Pym: Scott, I need you to be the Ant-Man.

Scott Lang: One question... Is it too late to change the name?

Sam Wilson: I know a guy.

Scott Lang: [to Hank and Hope] Don't worry, he can't see me.

Sam Wilson: I can see you!

Scott Lang: He can see me...

[scales up, and unlatches helmet]

Scott Lang: Hi, I'm Scott.

Hope Van Dyne: [shocked] Did he just say "Hi, I'm Scott."?

Scott Lang: Sorry I'm late, I was saving the world. You know how it is.

Hank Pym: It's a trial by fire, Scott... or in this case, water.

[the bathtub fills with water, and Scott jumps out]

Hank Pym: Guess you're tougher than you thought.

Yellowjacket: I'm gonna disintegrate you!

Siri: Playing "Disintegration" by the Cure

[post-credits scene: Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers are in a garage with the Winter Soldier, whose metal arm is trapped in a vice. He looks at Sam and Steve imploringly. They speak in low voices]

Sam Wilson: This would've been a lot easier a week ago.

Steve Rogers: If we call Tony...

Sam Wilson: [shakes his head] He won't believe us.

Steve Rogers: Even if he did...

Sam Wilson: Who knows if the Accords will let him help?

Steve Rogers: We're on our own.

Sam Wilson: Maybe not.


Sam Wilson: I know a guy.

[Scott shrinks himself]

Hank Pym: The world sure seems different from down here, doesn't it, Scott?

Scott Lang: Who said that?

Hank Pym: Scott?

Scott Lang: Yeah?

Hank Pym: You're full of shit.

Scott Lang: Oh yeah.

Scott Lang: [raises hand] Excuse me, Dr. Pym?

Hank Pym: You don't have to raise your hand Scott.

Scott Lang: [lowers hand] Okay. I just have one question... Who are you, who is she, what the hell is going on here, and can I go back to jail now?

[last lines]

Luis: Yeah, this dude sounds like a bad-ass, man. Like he comes up to him and he says, y'know: I'm looking for this dude who's mo' unseen, who's flashing this fresh tat, who's got, like, bomb moves, right? Who you got? She's like: Well, we got everything nowadays. We got a guy who jumps, we got a guy who swings, we got a guy who crawls up the walls, you gotta be more specific. And he's like: I'm looking for a guy who shrinks. And I'm like: Daaamn! I got all nervous, 'cause I keep mad secrets for you, bro. So I asked Ignacio: Did bad-ass tell the stupid fine writer chick, to tell you, to tell me, because I'm tight with that man that he's looking for him?

Scott Lang: And? What'd he say?

Luis: He said yes.

Scott Lang: Hey, how's your girl, man?

Luis: Ah, she left me.

Scott Lang: Oh.

Luis: And my mom died too. And my dad got deported.

[Scott just stares in awkward silence]

Luis: [Suddenly enthused] But I got the van!

Scott Lang: [Scott breaks into a house and reaches the safe] Oh man.

Luis: What is it?

Scott Lang: Well, they weren't kidding. This safe is serious.

Luis: How serious are we talkin', Scotty?

Scott Lang: It's a Carbondale. It's from 1910. Made from the same steel as the Titanic.

Luis: Wow. Can you crack it?

Scott Lang: Well, here's the thing. It doesn't do so well in the cold. Remember what that iceberg did?

Luis: Yeah, man, it killed DiCaprio.

Dave: Killed everyone.

Kurt: Did not kill the old lady. She still throw the jewel into the oceans.

[from trailer]

Hank Pym: [to Scott] It's not about saving our world. It's about saving THEIRS.

[Scott looks at his daughter]

Scott Lang: [after going through the key hole successfully] Nailed it!

Gale: [seeing the blown up ant] That is one messed up looking dog.

[from trailer]

Hank Pym: [to Scott] Second chances don't come around all that often. I suggest you take a really close look at it. This is your chance to earn that look in your daughter's eyes, to become the hero that she already thinks you are.

Hank Pym: [Hank walks in on Scott and Hope kissing] When did this happen?

Hope Van Dyne: Nothing's happening.

Scott Lang: Whoa, hold on. Something's kind of happening.

Hank Pym: Well if that's the case, shoot me again.

Dale: Baskin-Robbins always find out.

Yellowjacket: You think you can stop the future? You're just a thief!

Scott Lang: No, I'm the Ant-Man!... I know, it wasn't my idea.

Darren Cross: All those years ago, you picked me. What did you see in me?

Hank Pym: I saw myself.

Darren Cross: Then why did you push me away?

Hank Pym: Because I saw too much of myself.

Scott Lang: I think our first move should be calling the Avengers.

Hank Pym: I spent thirty years protecting that technology from a Stark, I sure as hell don't intend to give it to another! This isn't cute technology like the Iron Man suit! This could change the techs of reality! Besides, they must already have their hands busy throwing cities out of the sky...

Scott Lang: Pick on someone your own size!

Howard Stark: [to Carson] He just kicked your ass full-size, you really wanna find out what it's like when you can't see him coming?

Frank: Long time no see, Dr. Pym. How's retirement?

Hank Pym: How's your face?

Luis: Thank you for the coffee ma'am. It's not too often that you rob a place, and then get welcomed back. Because we just robbed you!

Hope Van Dyne: You know that he was arrested for stealing a smoothie machine, right?

Luis: Two smoothie machines.

Cassie Lang: Daddy, is that you?

Scott Lang: Hi, peanut!

Luis: You know what? I was thinking of a tactic. Like when I go undercover. Like a whistling. You know what I am saying? To like blend in.

Scott Lang: No. Do not whistle. No whistling. It is not The Andy Griffith Show. No whistling.

[cut to Luis whistling]

Cassie Lang: Are you a monster?

Yellowjacket: Do I look like a monster?

Cassie Lang: [freaks out] I want my daddy!

Yellowjacket: I want him too.

Scott Lang: I love you, Cassie.

[sabotages the Yellowjacket regulator in a kamikaze move]

Hope Van Dyne: [to Scott] The suit has power, and you have to learn how to control it... and these are your greatest allies.

[Scott meets an ant]

Darren Cross: [at a function] Imagine a soldier the size of an insect, the ultimate secret weapon...

Hank Pym: [to Hope] You give godlike powers to everyone, it's gonna be chaos!

Hope Van Dyne: So how do we stop him?

Hank Pym: I know a guy...

[Hank tells Hope the truth about her mother's death and she comes to terms with it, then Scott interrupts]

Scott Lang: This is awesome. It's awesome. You know, you guys are breaking down walls, you're healing, it's important.

[Hank and Hope stare at Scott]

Scott Lang: I ruined the moment, didn't I?

Hank Pym: Yes, you did, yes.

Scott Lang: [Smiles and points at the kitchen] I'm gonna make some tea.

[from trailer]

Hank Pym: Scott, I've been watching you for a while, now. You're different. Now, don't let anyone tell you that you have nothing to offer.

Scott Lang: We're trapped, now what do we do?

Hank Pym: Do you think that's a toy tank on my key-ring?

Hank Pym: You're throwing 247 off balance.

Scott Lang: Wait, his name is 247?

Hank Pym: He doesn't have a name, he has a number, Scott. Do you have any idea how many ants there are?

Hank Pym: You've come for more toys for the boys?

Howard Stark: I came for the suit.

Scott Lang: We need a fake security guard on the inside, somebody else to hack into the power supply, and a getaway guy.

Hank Pym: No, no, no, not those three wombats!

Luis: We're the good guys right?

Scott Lang: Yeah, we're the good guys.

Luis: Feels kinda, kinda weird, y'know.

Scott Lang: Yeah. But we're not done yet...

Hank Pym: Do not screw with the regulator. If that regulator is compromised you would go sub-atomic.

Scott Lang: What does that mean?

Hank Pym: It means that you would enter a quantum realm.

Scott Lang: What does that mean?

Hank Pym: It means that you would enter a reality where all concepts of time and space become irrelevant as you shrink for all eternity. Everything that you know, and love, gone forever.

Scott Lang: Cool. Yeah. I'm... If it ain't broke...

Cassie Lang: Mommy, is daddy a bad man? I heard some grown-ups talking. They said he was bad.

Maggie Lang: No, he's not bad. Daddy just gets confused sometimes, you know?

[first lines]

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... Through your defense lab.

[slams a vial of Pym particles on table]

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 work.

Hank Pym: I let you turned 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.

Hank Pym: Ah...

[Pym slams Carson's head into a desk]

Peggy Carter: Easy, Hank!

Hank Pym: You mention my wife again, and I'll show you ferocity.

Howard Stark: [as Carson stares at him] Don't look at me. You said it.

Hank Pym: I took on a young protégé called Darren Cross.

Scott Lang: Darren Cross. He's a big deal.

Hank Pym: But before he was a big deal he was my assistant. I thought I saw something in him, a son I never had perhaps. He was brilliant, but as we became close he began to suspect that I wasn't telling him everything. He heard rumors about what was called the Pym Particles, and he became obsessed with recreating my formula. But I wouldn't help him so he conspired against me and he voted me out of my own company.

Scott Lang: How could he do that?

Hank Pym: The board's chairman is my daughter, Hope. She was the deciding vote.

Kurt: The Ant-Man is in the building.

Dave: Baskin-Robbins don't play!

Hope Van Dyne: This bozo here got caught stealing a smoothie machine.

Luis: Two... smoothie machines.

Darren Cross: You tried to hide your suit from me, now, it's gonna blow up in your face, and destroy everyone you care about.

Hank Pym: I formally tender my resignation.

Howard Stark: We won'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.

Scott Lang: [serves a teenager customer at Baskin-Robbins] Welcome to Baskin-Robbins. Would you like to try our Mango Fruit Blast?

Ice Cream Store Customer: Uh, no thanks. Um... I will have, I'll have a burger, please.

Scott Lang: Oh, we don't, we don't make that.

Ice Cream Store Customer: Pretzel. Hot pretzel, like mustard... do you have mustard dip?

Scott Lang: It's ice cream! Baskin-Robbins.

Ice Cream Store Customer: [becoming exasperated] I'll just do, like, whatever's hot and fresh.

Scott Lang: Dude.

Dale: [to Scott from his office] Can I see you in the back, chief? Pronto.

Scott Lang: Sure thing, Dale. Darby, could you just, uh, take care of this idiot? Thanks.

Scott Lang: Scott Lang: Hank, didn't you say this was some old warehouse? Its not! You son of a bitch!

Luis: [Scott is just released from prison] Scotty! What's up, man? Dang, hey!

Scott Lang: Ha ha! Hey, man!

Luis: Hey, what's up with your eye?

Scott Lang: Oh. Well, what do you think? Peachy. It's a going-away present.

Luis: Oh, yeah. I still got my scar from a year ago!

Scott Lang: Oh, yeah.

Luis: Yeah. You know what? I'm still the only one who knocked him out.

Scott Lang: Well, I definitely didn't.

Scott Lang: Hey, look what I have for you.

[Hands Cassie a gift]

Cassie Lang: Can I open it now?

Paxton: Of course sweetheart, it's your birthday.

[Cassie pulls out a Hideous Rabbit]

Hideous Rabbit: You're my bestest friend!

Paxton: What is that thing?

Cassie Lang: He's so ugly! I love him! Can I go show my friends?

Hope Van Dyne: [to Scott] When you're small, energy's compressed, so you have the force of a 200-pound man behind a fist a 100th of an inch wide. You're like a bullet. You punch too hard, you kill someone, too soft, it's a love tap. In other words, you have to know how to punch.

Scott Lang: I was in prison for three years, I know how to punch.

Hope Van Dyne: Show me.

[Scott punches her hand]

Hope Van Dyne: Terrible.

Scott Lang: You wanna show me how to punch?

[lifts his hand up]

Scott Lang: Show me...

Hope Van Dyne: [punches Scott in the face, knocking him down] That's how you punch.

Hope Van Dyne: [to Scott] Alright, princess. Let's get back to work.

Hank Pym: [watching Ant-Man on the monitor] Abort, Scott! Abort now!

Scott Lang: It's okay. He can't see me.

Sam Wilson: I can see you!

Scott Lang: He can see me.

Hank Pym: [after Hope trains and punches Scott in the face] She's been looking forward to this.

Scott Lang: No kidding.

Hank Pym: Hope trained in martial arts at a difficult time.

Hope Van Dyne: Oh, by "difficult time," he means when my mother died.

Hank Pym: We lost her in a plane crash.

Hope Van Dyne: It's bad enough you won't tell me how she died, could you please stop telling me that lie? We're working here.

[to Scott]

Hope Van Dyne: Alright, princess, let's get back to work.

Scott Lang: Were you going for the hand?

Cassie Lang: Mommy's so happy you're here, she choked on her drink.

Hank Pym: That was completely irresponsible and dangerous! You jeopardized everything!

Hope Van Dyne: [Scott sets the signal decoy on the counter] You got it.

Hank Pym: Well done.

Scott Lang: Wait a minute. Did you just compliment me? He did, didn't he?

Hope Van Dyne: Kinda sounded like he did.

Hank Pym: I was good, wasn't I?

Scott Lang: Hey, how about the fact that I fought an Avenger and didn't die?

Hank Pym: The final phase of your training will be a stealth incursion.

Ant-Man: It's freezing! You couldn't make a suit with a flannel lining?

Scott Lang: [in a prison fight] You didn't even move.

Peachy: Nah.

Scott Lang: Okay, what if I come in on the left side, right? Just down here. You see this right here?

[he slugs Peachy in the face; wiping blood from his lip, Peachy grins]

Peachy: I'm gonna miss you, Scott.

Scott Lang: I'm gonna miss you, too, Peachy. Man, you guys got the weirdest goodbye rituals.

Scott Lang: Thanks for the hook-up, too. I needed a place to stay.

Luis: You wait 'till you see this couch. You're gonna be really happy. You're gonna be on your feet in no time. Watch.

Scott Lang: I hope so.

Luis: Yeah. And I gotta introduce you to some people. Some really skilled people.

Scott Lang: Not interested.

Luis: Yeah, right.

Scott Lang: No, I'm serious, man. I'm not going back. I got a daughter to take care of.

Luis: You know that jobs don't come easy for ex-cons, right?

Scott Lang: Look, man, I got a master's in electrical engineering, all right? I'm gonna be fine.

[cut to him working at Baskin Robbins]

Hope Van Dyne: Good morning, Hank.

Hank Pym: Hope. Would it kill you to call me "dad"?

Hank Pym: The process is highly volatile. If one isn't protected by a specialized helmet, it can affect the brain's chemistry. I don't think Darren realizes this, and, you know, he's not the most stable guy to begin with.

Scott Lang: So, what do you want from me?

Hank Pym: Scott, I believe that everyone deserves a shot at redemption. Do you?

Scott Lang: I do.

Hank Pym: If you can help me, I promise I can help you be with your daughter again. Now, are you ready to redeem yourself?

Scott Lang: Alright, just so we're clear, everyone here knows their role, right? Dave?

Dave: Wheels on the ground.

Scott Lang: Kurt?

Kurt: Eyes in the sky.

Scott Lang: Luis?

Luis: Aw, man, you know it. You know what, I get to wear a uniform, that's what's up.

Scott Lang: Luis.

Luis: I'm sorry, I mean, I'm good, I'm good. I'm just excited, and plus you're girlfriend's really hot, so you know that makes me nervous too.

[to Hope]

Luis: And you are very beautiful, ma'am.

Hank Pym: Oh, my lord.

Scott Lang: She's not my...

Luis: Hey, you know what? I was thinking of a tactic, like when I go undercover, like a whistling, you know I'm saying? To like, blend in.

Scott Lang: No, don't whistle. No whistling. It's not the Andy Griffith Show. No whistling.

Scott Lang: Maggie, I tell you this as a friend, and as the first love of my life, your fiancé is an ass-hat.

Maggie Lang: He's not an ass-hat.

Paxton: Hey, watch your language. Okay?

Scott Lang: Oh, what language? I said hat.

Scott Lang: Yeah, I don't know what you're doing grabbing me and kissing me like that. I was a little surprised myself. I have to get somewhere. I'll see you later, Hank. Really, Hope.

Hank Pym: Scott.

Scott Lang: Yeah?

Hank Pym: You're full of shit.

Scott Lang: Oh, yeah.

Darren Cross: Did you think you could stop the future with a heist?

Ant-Man: It was never just a heist!

[First Lines]

Young Pym: [walks into a S.H.I.E.L.D. Office in 1989, where Howard Stark, Peggy Carter, and Mitchell Carson are sitting] Stark!

Howard Stark: [mutters] He doesn't seem happy. Hello, Hank! You're supposed to be in Moscow.

Young Pym: I took a detour...

[slams a remade Pym Particle on the table]

Young Pym: ... through your defense lab.

Peggy Carter: Tell me that isn't what I think it is.

Young 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...

Young 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.

Young 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.

Young Pym: Ah...

[slams Carson's face into his desk, bloodying his nose]

Peggy Carter: [holds Pym back] Easy, Hank!

Young Pym: [points at Carson] You mention my wife again, and I'll show you ferocity.

Howard Stark: [to Carson after he looks at him] Don't look at me, you said it.

Young Pym: I formally tender my resignation.

Howard Stark: We don't except it. Formally. Hank, we need you. The Pym Particle is a miracle. Please. Don't let your past determine the future.

Young Pym: As long as I am alive, nobody will ever get that formula.


Mitchell Carson: We shouldn't let him leave the building.

Peggy Carter: You've already lied to him, now you want to go to war with him?

Mitchell Carson: Yes! Our scientists haven't come close to replicating his work.

Howard Stark: He just kicked your ***, full-size. You really want to find out what it's like when you can't see him coming? I've known Hank Pym for a long time, he's no security risk. Unless we make him one.

Scott Lang: Welcome to Baskin-Robbins, would you like to try our Mango Fruit Blast?

Hank Pym: [Scott is about to steal tech from the Avengers Headquarters] He's gonna lose the suit.

Hope Van Dyne: He's gonna lose his life.

Paxton: [after Scott escapes from prison] Where the heck did he go?

Gale: I have no idea, he just vanished!

Paxton: [over his walkie-talkie] Set up a five-block perimeter, now!

Darren Cross: What do you call the only man who can arm the most powerful weapon in the world?

Hank Pym: The most powerful man in the world.

Darren Cross: You proud of me yet?

Mitchell Carson: Here we go.

Hope Van Dyne: [to Cross as he's about to shoot Pym; has a gun pointed at Cross] Drop... your... gun.

Hank Pym: You need to be skillful, agile, and above all, you need to be fast. You should be able to shrink and grow on a dime. So your size always suits your needs.

Hank Pym: You can stop this, Darren. It's not too late.

Darren Cross: It's been too late for a long time now.

[his HYDRA buyers turn their guns on Pym]

Hope Van Dyne: Darren! What are you doing?

Darren Cross: He wasn't any more capable of caring for you than he was for me.

Hope Van Dyne: This is not who you are. It's the particles altering your brain chemistry.

Darren Cross: [HYDRA is about to shoot Pym; lunges in front of them] Wait! Wait, wait, wait, wait. You're right. I have to be the one to do it.

[turns his gun on Pym]

Hope Van Dyne: [elbows a HYDRA buyer and grabs his gun, pointing it at Cross as the HYDRA buyers turn their guns on her]

Mitchell Carson: Here we go.

Hope Van Dyne: [to Cross] Drop... your... gun.

Darren Cross: You know, I came to the house the other night to kill him. But you were there!

Hope Van Dyne: You're sick and I can help you, just put the gun - down.

Darren Cross: I wasn't ready to kill you then. But I think I am now!


Darren Cross: You picked the wrong side, Hope!

Scott Lang: [smashes through his "prison" and knocks down all the HYDRA buyers]

Mitchell Carson: Long time no see, Dr. Pym. How's retirement?

Hank Pym: How's your face?

Luis: Hey, if the job goes bad, you know I got your back, right?

Scott Lang: Don't worry. It's not gonna happen.

Luis: [snickering with Dave as Scott leaves] I love it when he gets cocky.

Hank Pym: [mid-credits scene] There's something I want to show you. I realized you can't destroy power. All you can do is make sure that it's in the right hands.

[unveiling the Wasp suit]

Hank Pym: This is an advanced prototype that your mother and I worked on together. She never got to use it. But now I realize that we were... we were working on it for you. Maybe it's time we finished it.

Hope Van Dyne: [smiling to herself] It's about damn time.

Paxton: Get out of that van!

Luis: What?

Paxton: Get out of that van!

Luis: It's too loud, there's a tank. I can't hear you!

Dave: Looks like Pym's getting arrested.

Kurt: Scott, we have problem.

Scott Lang: Problem? What's the problem?

Kurt: [Dave gets out of the van] Dave! Dave, that's not part of plan!

Hank Pym: [talking to Paxton and Gale] Listen to me. If I don't get into this building, people will die.

Gale: That's awfully dramatic.

Paxton: [their squad car peels out, siren blaring] Are you kidding me?

Kurt: Problem solved.

Sam Wilson: [after losing a fight to Scott] It's really important to me that Cap never finds out about this.

Hank Pym: Your mother convinced me to let her join me on my... missions. They called her the Wasp. She was born to it. And there's not a day that goes by that I don't regret having said yes. It was 1987. Separatists had hijacked a Soviet missile silo in Kursk and launched an ICBM at the United States. The only way to the internal mechanics was through solid titanium. I knew I had to shrink between the molecules to disarm the missile. But my regulator has sustained too much damage. Your mother, she didn't hesitate. She turned off her regulator and went subatomic to deactivate the bomb. And she was gone. Your mom died a hero. And I spent the next ten years trying to learn all I could about the quantum realm.

Hope Van Dyne: [crying] You were trying to bring her back.

Hank Pym: But all I learned was we know nothing.

Hope Van Dyne: It's not your fault. She made her choice. But why didn't you tell me that sooner?

Hank Pym: I was trying to protect you. I lost your mother. I didn't mean to lose you, too.

Scott Lang: Sir, I'm sorry I stole the suit. I don't even wanna know why you have it.

Hank Pym: Maggie was right about you.

Scott Lang: How do you know about...

Hank Pym: No wonder she's trying to keep you away from Cassie. The moment things get hard, you turn right back to crime. The way I see it, you have a choice. You can either spend the rest of your life in prison, or go back to your cell and await further instructions.

Scott Lang: I don't understand.

Hank Pym: No, I don't expect you to. But you don't have many options right now, and quite frankly, neither do I. Why do you think I let you steal that suit in the first place?

Scott Lang: What?

[flashback showing Hank setting things in motion]

Hank Pym: Second chances don't come around all that much. So next time you think you might see one, I suggest you take a real close look at it.

Scott Lang: [after his boss learns about his criminal record] Dale, look, it wasn't a violent crime. I mean, I'm a good worker.

Dale: No, it wasn't a violent crime. It was a cool crime. I'll tell you what, though. This will be totally off the books, off the records, but, uh, if you want to grab one of those, uh, Mango Fruit Blasts on your way out the door, I'll just pretend I didn't see it.

Luis: That's Kurt. He was Folsom for five years. He's a wizard on that laptop.

Kurt: Nice meet you.

Scott Lang: Yeah, nice to meet you, too. Who are you?

Dave: Dave. Nice work on the Vista job.

Kurt: Vista job, yes. No, no. I have heard of this robbery.

Scott Lang: Well, technically, I didn't rob them. Robbery involves threat. I hate violence. I burgled them. I'm a cat buglar.

Dave: You mean you're a pussy.

Scott Lang: Yeah.

Hope Van Dyne: [Scott gets into her car's passenger seat] Oh, god.

Scott Lang: You gotta lock your doors. I mean, really, there's some weird folks in this neighborhood.

Hope Van Dyne: Do you think this is a joke? Do you have any idea what he's asking you to risk? You have a daughter.

Scott Lang: I'm doing this for her.

Hope Van Dyne: You know when my mother died, I didn't see him for two weeks.

Scott Lang: He was in grief.

Hope Van Dyne: Yeah, so was I, and I was seven. And he never came back. Not in any way that counted. He just sent me off to boarding school. You know, I thought, with all that's at stake, just maybe we might have a chance of making peace. But even now, he still wants to shut me out.

Scott Lang: He doesn't want to shut you out. He trusts you.

Hope Van Dyne: Then why are you here?

Scott Lang: It proves that he loves you. Hope, look at me. I'm expendable. That's why I'm here. You must have realized that by now. I mean, it's why I'm in the suit and you're not. He'd rather lose this fight than lose you.

Luis: Okay. I was at a wine tasting with my cousin Ernesto, which was mainly reds, and you know I don't love reds man, you know? But there was a rosé that saved the day, it was delightful. And he tells me about this girl Emily that we used to kick it with, it was actually the first pair of boobs that I ever touched.

Scott Lang: It's the wrong details. It's wrong... It has nothing to do with the story. Go!

Luis: So, uh, he tells me that she's working as a housekeeper now, right? And she's dating this dude Carlos who's a shot caller from across the bay and she tells him about the dude that she's cleaning for. Right? That he's, like, this big-shot CEO that is all retired now but he's loaded. And so, Carlos and Ernesto are on the same softball team and they get to talking, right? And here comes the good part. Carlos says: "Yo, man. This guy's got a big-ass safe just sitting in the basement, just chillin'." Of course Ernesto comes to me cause he knows I've got mad thieving skills. Of course I ask him: "Did Emily tell Carlos to tell you to get to me what kind of safe it was? And he says: "Nah, dog. All she said is that it's, like, super legit, and whatever's in it has gotta be good!

Scott Lang: What?

Kurt: Old man have safe.

Luis: And he's gone for a week.

Scott Lang: Alright. There's an old man, he's got a safe, and he's gone for a week. Let's just work with that.

Luis: Y'know what I'm sayin'?

Hank Pym: Darren. How the hell did you get in here?

Yellowjacket: You left the front door open, Hank. It's official. You're old.

Hope Van Dyne: [Referring to a napping Luis, Dave and Kurt] I gave them each half a Xanax and Hank explained the science of the suit to them. Fell right asleep.

Hope Van Dyne: Are you sure they can handle this?

Luis: Oh we can handle it, we're professionals.

Hank Pym: You'll forgive us if we're not instilled with confidence.

Dave: Wait, everybody. Just kick back and relax a little bit, man. We know our business. We broke into this spooky-ass house, didn't we?

Hank Pym: I let you.

Dave: Well, one could say that I let you let me.

Yellowjacket: You tried to hide your technology from me, and now it's gonna blow up in your face.

[Pym punches Cross in the face]

Yellowjacket: Wow. Wow! I mean, I saw the punch coming a mile away but I just figured it'd be all pathetic and weak.

Hank Pym: Well you figured wrong.

Paxton: Freeze!

Dave: Okay, wait a minute, wait a minute! there was a black guy that looked exactly like me who attacked us and put us in the back of this disgusting van.
