Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: [in a bar] Reload...
[finishes his drink]
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: Reload...
[someone enters the bar and walks toward Ross]
Tony Stark: The smell of stale beer... and defeat. You know, I hate to say "I told you so," but that Super-Soldier project *WAS* put on ice for a reason. I've always felt that hardware was much more reliable.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: Stark.
Tony Stark: General.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: You always wear such nice suits.
Tony Stark: Touché. I hear you have an unusual problem.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: You should talk!
Tony Stark: You should listen. What if I told you we were putting a team together?
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: Who's "we"?
[Stark looks silently at Ross]
Bruce Banner: [as he jumps from the helicopter to change into The Hulk and doesn't, he continues to fall] Oh, shit!
[During the fight between The Hulk and The Abomination]
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: [Referring to the machine gun on the helicopter] Use that thing, soldier. Give him some help!
Helicopter Soldier: Which one?
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: Help the green one, dammit! Which one do you think? Cut the other one in half!
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: You did the right thing, calling us. Leonard, I need to know where they're going. She'll be in incredible danger as long as she's with him.
Leonard: From who? He protected her. You almost killed her.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: I give you my word, her safety is my main concern at this point.
Leonard: You know, it's a point of professional pride for me that I can tell when somebody's lying. And you are.
Leonard: I don't know where he's going. I know she'll help him if she can.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: Then she's aiding a fugitive. And I can't help either one of them.
Leonard: I used to wonder why she never talked about you. Now I know.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: [to himself] Where does she meet these guys?
Major Kathleen 'Kat' Sparr: Are you telling me you can make more like him?
Samuel Sterns: No! Not yet. I sorted out a few pieces, but it's not like I can put together the same Humpty Dumpty if that's what you're asking. He was a freak accident! The goal is to it better!
Major Kathleen 'Kat' Sparr: So Banner's the only...
[Blonsky knocks her out from behind]
Emil Blonsky: She's an annoying bitch.
Samuel Sterns: Why are you always hitting people?
[cocks gun, points it at Sterns]
Samuel Sterns: Now what possibly could I have done to deserve such aggression?
Emil Blonsky: It's not what you've done. It's what you're gonna do. I want what you got out of Banner. I want that.
Samuel Sterns: You look like you've got a little something in you already, don't you?
Emil Blonsky: I want more. You've seen what he becomes, right?
Samuel Sterns: I have. And it's beautiful. Godlike.
Emil Blonsky: Well, I want that. I need that. Make me that.
Samuel Sterns: I don't know what you've got inside you already. The mix could be an abomination.
[Blonsky grabs Sterns and lifts him up]
Samuel Sterns: I didn't say I was unwilling. I just need informed consent. And you've given it.
Betty Ross: What is it like? When it happens, what do you experience?
Bruce Banner: Remember those experiments we volunteered for at Harvard? Those induced hallucination? It's a lot like that, just a thousand times amplified. It's like someone poured a litre of acid into my brain.
Betty Ross: Do you remember anything?
Bruce Banner: Just fragments. Images. There's too much noise. I can never derive anything out of it.
Betty Ross: But then it's still YOU inside of it.
Bruce Banner: No. No, it's not.
Betty Ross: I don't know. In the cave, I really felt like it knew me. Maybe your mind is in there, it's just overcharged and can't process what's happening.
Bruce Banner: I don't want to control it. I want to get rid of it.
Emil Blonsky: Forgive me, sir? Doesn't anybody want to talk about what went down in there? 'Cause... He didn't lose us. And he was not alone sir. We had him. And then something hit us... Something BIG hit us! It threw a forklift truck like it was a SOFTBALL! It was the most powerful thing I've ever seen.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: Well, it's gone.
Emil Blonsky: Well, if Banner knows what it is, I'm gonna track him down, I'm gonna put my foot on his throat, and I'm gonna...
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: That was Banner. IT was Banner.
Emil Blonsky: You have to explain that statement, sir.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: No I don't. You've done a good job. Pack up and get our men on a plane. We're going home.
Bruce Banner: Stan, I give you my word. Whatever you've heard about me, it's not true.
Stanley: Oh, I know it. I always knew it. I mean, you know how I felt about you two.
Stanley: Have you talked to her?
Bruce Banner: No. She doesn't know that I'm here.
Bruce Banner: She's with somebody?
Stanley: Yeah, He's a head-shrink. They say he's one of the best. But a really nice guy.
Bruce Banner: Oh... Good. That's good.
Stanley: Bruce. What can I do to help you?
Bruce Banner: I could use a bed for a few nights.
Stanley: Ah. You can have the spare room upstairs.
Bruce Banner: That'd be so great.
Bruce Banner: There's, uh, there's one other thing...
Samuel Sterns: [to Blonsky] WHY are you always hitting people?
The Incredible Hulk: Leave me alone.
The Incredible Hulk: Betty.
Abomination: Give me a REAL fight!
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: You must realize that what I'm about to tell you is very sensitive, both to me and to the Army. You know that we have a Bio-Force Department, and that we had a bio-force enhancement research project developed during World War II...
Emil Blonsky: A Super-Soldier.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: A simplification, but yes. We decided to dust it off, and give it another go, aiming to create the better soldier. Banner's work was very early-phase. It wasn't even weapons application, he thought he was working on radiation resistance. I would never have told him what it was really for, but he was so sure about what he was doing he tested it on himself. And something went very wrong... or it went very right.
Samuel Sterns: [nervously, in front of a mutating Blonsky] ... This is what I was trying to explain... I don't know what you've been ladling into yourself... Let's assume you don't understand a word I'm saying... but if you'll just get back on the table... I can... fix this...
[with a laugh, Blonsky shoves him aside]
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: As far as I'm concerned, that man's whole body is property of the U.S. army.
Emil Blonsky: Is that it? Is that all you've got?
Emil Blonsky: I've had missions go wrong, and seen good people go down, all because someone didn't tell them what they were walking into. I moved on because that's the job, and that's what we do. But this... this is a whole new level of weird, and I don't think I want to step away from it. Sir, if you're going to take another crack at him, I want in. And with respect, sir, you'll need a team that's prepared and ready to fight, because if that thing shows up again... you're going to have a lot of professional tough guys pissing in their pants, sir.
Abomination: [to the Hulk] You don't deserve this power. Now watch her DIE!
[Blonsky is antagonizing the Hulk]
Emil Blonsky: [haughtily; to the Hulk] Well... Is that it?
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: [through a walkie-talkie] Blonsky, pull back now!
[Blonsky bad-temperedly pulls the earpiece out of his ear and throws it away]
Emil Blonsky: Is that all you've got?
The Incredible Hulk: [growls] Grrr...
[the Hulk kicks Blonsky like a soccerball; Blonsky slams into a tree and falls down to the ground, not moving]
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: How old are you, Blonsky, forty-five?
Emil Blonsky: Thirty-nine.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: That takes a toll, doesn't it?
Emil Blonsky: Yes, it does.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: So get out of the trenches. You should be a Colonel by now, with your record.
Emil Blonsky: No, sir, I'm a fighter, and I'll be one for as long as I can. Mind you, if I took what I had now, and put it in a body that I had ten years ago, that would be someone I wouldn't want to fight
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: [thoughtfully] I think I can arrange something like that...
Samuel Sterns: If we overshoot this by even the smallest integer, we're dealing with concentrations with extraordinary levels of toxicity.
Betty Ross: You mean it could kill him.
Samuel Sterns: Kill him? Yeah, I should say so.
Bruce Banner: You should know that there's a flip side to this, too. If we miss on the low side, if we induce me and it fails, this will be very dangerous for you.
Samuel Sterns: I've always been more curious than cautious, and that's served me pretty well.
Samuel Sterns: You didn't send me much to work with. So I had to concentrate it and make more.
