Shuri: Did he freeze?

Okoye: Like an antelope in headlights.

M'Baku: If you say one more word, I'll feed you to my children!

[Ross shuts up, beat]

M'Baku: I'm kidding. We're vegetarians.

Everett K. Ross: [after he wakes up] Is this Wakanda?

Shuri: [sarcastically] No, it's Kansas.

T'Challa: Wakanda will no longer watch from the shadows. We can not. We must not. We will work to be an example of how we, as brothers and sisters on this earth, should treat each other. Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another, as if we were one single tribe.

T'Challa: We can still heal you...

Erik Killmonger: Why, so you can lock me up? Nah. Just bury me in the ocean with my ancestors who jumped from ships, 'cause they knew death was better than bondage.

T'Challa: I did not yield! And as you can see, I am not dead! The challenge continues!

Okoye: Just remember, don't freeze when you see her.

T'Challa: Whatcha taking about? I never freeze.

King T'Chaka: [to his son] You are a good man, with a good heart. And it's hard for a good man to be a king.

Ulysses Klaue: Tell me something. What do you know about Wakanda?

Everett K. Ross: It's a Third-World country. Textiles, shepherds, cool outfits.

Ulysses Klaue: All a front. Explorers have searched for it, called it "El Dorado". They looked for it in South America, but it was in Africa the whole time. I'm the only one who's seen it, and made it out alive.

Shuri: Don't scare me like that, coloniser!

Young Oakland Kid: It's a Bugatti Spaceship.

Erik Killmonger: I've waited my whole life for this. The world's going to start over. I'MA BURN IT ALL!

T'Challa: What happens now determines what happens to the rest of the world.

Nakia: [to T'Challa] You cannot let your father's actions define your life. You get to decide what kind of king you want to be.

W'Kabi: You would kill me my love?

Okoye: For Wakanda? Without Question.

Okoye: Guns... so primitive!

Shuri: [after Everett Ross is wheeled in Wakandan facilities to be healed] Praise! Another broken white boy to fix.

Everett K. Ross: Does she speak English?

Okoye: When she wants to.

[first lines]

N'Jadaka: Tell me a story, baba.

N'Jobu: What story, my son?

N'Jadaka: About home.

N'Jobu: Millions of years ago, a meteorite made of vibranium, the strongest substance in the universe, struck the continent of Africa, affecting the plant life around it. And when the time of men came, five tribes settled on it and called it Wakanda. The tribes lived in constant war with each other, until a warrior shaman received a vision from the panther goddess Bast, who led him to the Heart-Shaped Herb, a plant that granted him superhuman strength, speed and instincts. The warrior became king and the first Black Panther, the protector of Wakanda. Four tribes agreed to live under the king's rule, but the Jabari tribe isolated themselves in the mountains. The Wakandans used vibranium to develop technology more advanced than any other nation, but as Wakanda thrived, the world around it descended further into chaos. To keep vibranium safe, the Wakandans vowed to hide in plain sight, keeping the truth of their power from the outside world.

N'Jadaka: Do we still hide, baba?

N'Jobu: Yes.

N'Jadaka: Why?

W'Kabi: Would you kill me, my love?

Okoye: For Wakanda... no question

Everett K. Ross: [to T'Challa] I have seen gods fly. I have seen men build weapons that I couldn't even imagine. I have seen aliens drop from the sky. But I have never seen anything like this. How much more are you hiding?

[Shuri drives a car and runs over someone]

Shuri: What was that?

T'Challa: Don't worry about it, you're doing fine!

Okoye: Wakanda forever!

T'Challa: My suit is good.

Shuri: Old tech. Functional, but old. "People are shooting at me - wait, let me put my helmet on!"

Erik Killmonger: Hi auntie.

Everett K. Ross: Why don't you give me the name of your supplier and I'll ask him

Ulysses Klaue: He's right outside this very moment.

T'Challa: I am not ready, baba.

King T'Chaka: Have you not spent so many years by my side, watching and learning, preparing for this day?

T'Challa: That is not what I meant. I am not ready to be without you.

King T'Chaka: A man who has not prepared his children for his own death has failed as a father.

Shuri: [about T'Challa's sandals] What are those?

Everett K. Ross: Quite the entourage, do you have a mixtape coming out?

Ulysses Klaue: Actually yeah there is, I'll send you the Sound cloud

[to his guard]

Ulysses Klaue: do you have the link?

Everett K. Ross: [T'Challa leaves a craps table] Hey, you won!

Thirsty Gambler: You know what? I'm just going to take these chips and set them over here.

T'Challa: If you weren't so stubborn, you would make a great queen.

Nakia: I would make a great queen. because I am so stubborn

Shuri: This corset is really uncomfortable, so can we all just wrap it up and go home?

N'Jobu: No tears for me, son?

Erik Killmonger: People die every day. That's just part of life around here.

Shuri: It's like riding a hover-bike.

Everett K. Ross: You have hover-bikes?

[in Oakland]

Shuri: When you said you'd bring me to California when I was a kid, I thought you meant Coachella, or Disneyland. Where are we?

T'Challa: This is the building where our uncle lived, where our father killed him.

Shuri: [sees a condemnation notice] They're tearing it down. Good.

T'Challa: They are not tearing it down, not anymore. I bought the building. And that one... and that one.

M'Baku: Witness the strength of the Jabari... first-hand!

[picks up W'Kabi and throws him into the field surrounding the Wakandans]

T'Challa: [freezes] Nakia... hi.

[Okoye appears and saves TChalla]

Okoye: You froze.

Okoye: [to Killmonger] You are so full of hatred, you will never be a true king!

Erik Killmonger: [to T'Challa] Wassup, cuz?

T'Challa: You will destroy the world, Wakanda included!

Erik Killmonger: The world took everything away from me! Everything I ever loved! But I'ma make sure we're even. I'ma track down anyone who would even think of being loyal to you! And I'ma put their ass in the dirt, right next to Zuri!

[post-credits scene: in a small village at Wakanda, Bucky comes out of a hut. He looks around. A group of children call him "White Wolf". He approaches Shuri]

Shuri: Good morning, Sergeant Barnes.

Bucky Barnes: Bucky.

Shuri: How are you feeling?

Bucky Barnes: Good.


Bucky Barnes: Thank you.

Shuri: Come.

[Shuri starts walking away]

Shuri: Much more for you to learn.

[Bucky pauses for a moment, looking at the landscape, then follows Shuri]

T'Challa: What do you want?

Erik Killmonger: I want the throne!

Erik Killmonger: When I tell you to do something, I mean that shit.

Ramonda: My son, it is your time.

T'Challa: [on saving Ross] I will not abandon someone to die, when I have the means to save his life.

Ulysses Klaue: You... you want to go to Wakanda? They're savages!

[shows scarred brand]

Ulysses Klaue: This is what they do to people like us.

Erik Killmonger: I don't worry about no brand. Check these out. Each one is for a kill.

[shows scars on his arms]

Ulysses Klaue: You can scar yourself as much as you like. To them, you'll just be an outsider. Your crazy to think that you can just walk in there. And to think I saw you as a crazy American...

[Klaue laughs, Killmonger shoots Klaue in the head]

Erik Killmonger: Y'all sittin' up here comfortable.

Okoye: I am loyal to that throne, no matter WHO sits on it.

Nakia: It is my duty to fight for who I... for the things I love.

Ulysses Klaue: [blasts a safe and sends the money falling everywhere] I made it rain!

Everett K. Ross: [to Klaw] That is quite the entourage!

W'Kabi: You let the refugees in, you let in all their problems.

Erik Killmonger: Wassup, princess?

[attacks Shuri]

Shuri: You will never be king of Wakanda!

Nakia: [to Ross] The king is dead. Come with me if you don't want to join him!

[being interrogated by Ross]

Ulysses Klaue: I can see you!

[TChalla glares at Klaue behind a screen]

King T'Chaka: [to his brother] Did you think you were the only spy we sent to the States?

[Zuri reveals himself]

T'Challa: Baba...

[falls to his knees]

King T'Chaka: Stand up! You are a king!

[Killmonger is going to kill T'Challa]

Zuri: I had your father killed! Take me.

Erik Killmonger: I'ma take you both, Uncle James!

[kills Zuri]

T'Challa: NOOOO!

T'Challa: This ends today!

Ulysses Klaue: [sees T'Challa] You look just like your old man.

Erik Killmonger: Helluva move

Everett K. Ross: My intel reports that the chunk of vibranium you took was all that Wakanda had.

Ulysses Klaue: [laughs, then gets serious] I took that chunk of vibranium out of a MOUNTAIN of the stuff!

[Killmonger takes a Dora Milaje hostage, Okoye hesitates]

Dora Milaje: Wakanda forever!

[Killmonger cuts her throat, Okoye screams and attacks him]

N'Jobu: I observed for as long as I could. Their leaders have been assassinated. Communities flooded with drugs and weapons. They are overly policed and incarcerated. All over the planet, our people suffer because they don't have the tools to fight back. With vibranium weapons they can overthrow all countries, and Wakanda can rule them all, the right way!

Ulysses Klaue: Let's have some fun!

[opens fire on his pursuers]

W'Kabi: The world is changing. Soon there will only be the conquered and the conquerors. I'd rather be the former.

Everett K. Ross: Erik Stevens. Graduated Annapolis aged nineteen, MIT for grad school. Joined the SEALs and went straight to Afghanistan, where he wrapped up confirmed kills like it was a video game. Started calling him Killmonger. He joined a J-SOC ghost unit, now these guys are serious, they would drop off the grid so they could commit assassinations and take down governments.

Okoye: Wakanda survived for so long by only fighting when absolutely necessary.

Everett K. Ross: He

[Erik Killmonger]

Everett K. Ross: worked with our CIA to destabilize foreign governments... during election cycles.

M'Baku: Glory to Hanuman

[TChalla confronts his ancestors in the ancestral plane]

T'Challa: You were wrong - all of you were wrong - to turn your backs on the rest of the world! We let the fear of discovery stop us from doing what is right. No more! I cannot stay here with you. I cannot rest while HE sits on the throne! He is a monster of our own making! I must take the mantle back. I must! I must right these wrongs!
