Chris Evans: Captain America, Steve Rogers
[Steve finds Bucky strapped to a table in one of Schmidt's testing labs and quickly releases him from it]
Steve Rogers : It's me. It's Steve.
James 'Bucky' Barnes : [groggily] Steve?
Steve Rogers : Come on.
James 'Bucky' Barnes : Steve.
Steve Rogers : I thought you were dead.
James 'Bucky' Barnes : [aware of Steve's new size] I thought you were smaller.
Steve Rogers : Can I ask a question?
Abraham Erskine : Just one?
Steve Rogers : Why me?
Abraham Erskine : I suppose that's the only question that matters.
Abraham Erskine : [Displaying a wine bottle] 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.
Steve Rogers : Did it make him stronger?
Abraham Erskine : 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.
Steve Rogers : Thanks. I think.
Abraham Erskine : [Gesturing toward the wine] 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.
Steve Rogers : There's not gonna be a safe landing, but I can try and force it down.
Peggy Carter : I'll-I'll get Howard on the line. He'll know what to do.
Steve Rogers : There's not enough time. This thing's moving too fast and it's heading for New York. I gotta put her in the water.
Peggy Carter : Please don't do this. W-we have time. We can work it out.
Steve Rogers : Right now I'm in the middle of nowhere. If I wait any longer a lot of people are gonna die. Peggy, this is my choice.
Steve Rogers : [turns the plane toward earth] Peggy...
Peggy Carter : I'm here.
Steve Rogers : I'm gonna need a rain check on that dance.
Peggy Carter : All right. A week next Saturday at The Stork Club.
Steve Rogers : You've got it.
Peggy Carter : Eight o'clock on the dot. Don't you dare be late. Understood?
Steve Rogers : You know, I still don't know how to dance.
Peggy Carter : I'll show you how. Just be there.
Steve Rogers : We'll have the band play something slow.
[the ship Cap is piloting is about to crash onto an icy land in the Arctic]
Steve Rogers : I'd hate to step on your...
[the radio goes to static]
Peggy Carter : Steve? Steve?
[Colonel Phillips is nearby as a tear drops down Peggy's face]
Peggy Carter : Steve?
[Colonel Phillips walks off. Peggy is alone, silently sobbing]
Red Skull : 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?
Steve Rogers : He told me you were insane.
Red Skull : 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?
Steve Rogers : Nothing. I'm just a kid from Brooklyn.
[Steve Rogers finds himself in New York]
Nick Fury : At ease, soldier! Look, I'm sorry about that little show back there, but we thought it best to break it to you slowly.
Steve Rogers : Break what?
Nick Fury : You've been asleep, Cap. For almost 70 years.
[Steve is silent with shock]
Nick Fury : You gonna be okay?
Steve Rogers : Yeah. Yeah, I just... I had a date.
Steve Rogers : I know this neighborhood. I got beat up in that alley. And that parking lot. And behind that diner.
Steve Rogers : Dr. Erskine said that the serum wouldn't just effect my muscles, it would effect my cells. Create a protective system of regeneration and healing. Which means, um, I can't get drunk. Did you know that?
Peggy Carter : Your metabolism burns four times faster than the average person. He thought it could be one of the side effects.
Steve Rogers : You ready to follow Captain America into the jaws of death?
James 'Bucky' Barnes : Hell, no! The little guy from Brooklyn who was too dumb not to run away from a fight. I'm following him.
James 'Bucky' Barnes : But you're keeping the outfit, right?
Steve Rogers : You know what? It's kinda grown on me.
Timothy 'Dum Dum' Dugan : So, let's get this straight.
Gabe Jones : We barely got out of there alive, and you want us to go back?
Steve Rogers : Pretty much.
James Montgomery Falsworth : Sounds rather fun, actually.
Jim Morita : [burps] I'm in.
[Jacques and Gabe converse briefly in French]
Gabe Jones : [referring to himself and Jacques] We're in.
Timothy 'Dum Dum' Dugan : Hell, I'll always fight. But you gotta do one thing for me.
Steve Rogers : What's that?
Timothy 'Dum Dum' Dugan : [drinks the rest of his beer in one go] Open a tab.
[they laugh as Steve gets up to go to the bar]
Timothy 'Dum Dum' Dugan : Well, that was easy.
Steve Rogers : [after one of Steve's "Captain America" shows] What are you doing here?
Peggy Carter : Officially I'm not here at all. That was quite a performance.
Steve Rogers : Yeah, uh... I had to improvise a little bit. The crowds I'm used to are usually more, uh...
[Struggles to find a word]
Peggy Carter : I understand you're America's new hope.
Steve Rogers : Bond sales take a ten percent bump in every state I visit.
Peggy Carter : Is that Senator Brandt I hear?
Steve Rogers : At least he's got me doing this. Phillips would have had me stuck in the lab.
Peggy Carter : And these are your only two options? A lab rat or a dancing monkey? You were meant for more than this, you know?
[Steve looks like he's about to say something, then closes his mouth]
Peggy Carter : What?
Steve Rogers : You know for the longest time I dreamed about coming overseas and being on the front lines. Serving my country. I finally get everything I wanted, and I'm wearing tights.
Col. Chester Phillips : General Patton has said that wars are fought with weapons but are won by men.
Loud Jerk : You just don't know when to give up, do ya?
Steve Rogers : I could do this all day.
Col. Chester Phillips : Our goal is to create the greatest army in history.
Steve Rogers : I should be going with you. Look, I know you don't think I can do this...
James 'Bucky' Barnes : This isn't a back alley, Steve. It's war!
Col. Chester Phillips : But every army begins with one man.
Abraham Erskine : Five tries in five different cities. I can offer you a chance.
Col. Chester Phillips : He will be the first in a new breed of super-soldier.
Steve Rogers : Why me?
Abraham Erskine : Because a weak man knows the value of strength, of the value of power.
Steve Rogers : That wasn't so bad.
Abraham Erskine : That was penicillin.
Col. Chester Phillips : We are going to win this war because we have the best men.
Abraham Erskine : Now, Mr. Stark.
[Howard Stark engages the machine]
Col. Chester Phillips : And they will, personally, escort Adolf Hitler to the gates of Hell.
Steve Rogers : What about the others? Are you planning a rescue mission?
Col. Chester Phillips : Yeah, it's called winning the war.
Steve Rogers : But if you know where they are, why not at least...
Col. Chester Phillips : They're thirty miles behind the lines, through some of the most heavily fortified territory in Europe. We'd lose more men than we'd save, but I don't expect you to understand that because you're a chorus girl.
Steve Rogers : I think I understand just fine.
Col. Chester Phillips : Well, then understand it somewhere else.
Col. Chester Phillips : Agent Carter, coordinate with MI6. I want every allied eyeball looking for that main Hydra base.
Peggy Carter : What about us?
Col. Chester Phillips : We are gonna set a fire under Johann Schmidt's ass. What do you say, Rogers? It's your map, you think you can wipe Hydra off of it?
Steve Rogers : Yes, sir. I'll need a team.
Col. Chester Phillips : We're already putting together the best men.
Steve Rogers : With all due respect, sir, so am I.
Peggy Carter : What do you plan to do? Walk to Austria?
Steve Rogers : If that's what it takes.
Peggy Carter : You heard the Colonel, your friend is most likely dead.
Steve Rogers : You don't know that.
Peggy Carter : Even so, he's devising a strategy to take...
Steve Rogers : By the time he's done that, it could be too late! You told me you thought I was meant for more than this. Did you mean that?
Peggy Carter : Every word.
Steve Rogers : Then you gotta let me go.
Peggy Carter : I can do more than that...
Col. Chester Phillips : Johann Schmidt belongs in a bug house. He thinks he's a God and he's willing to blow half the world prove it, starting with the U.S.A.
Howard Stark : Schmidt's working with powers beyond our capabilities. He gets across the Atlantic, he will wipe out the entire eastern seaboard in an hour.
Gabe Jones : How much time we got?
Col. Chester Phillips : According to my new best friend, under twenty-four hours.
Jim Morita : Where is he now?
Col. Chester Phillips : Hydra's last base is here.
[Holds up photo]
Col. Chester Phillips : In the Alps. Five hundred feet below the surface.
Jim Morita : So what are we supposed to do? I mean, it's not like we can just knock on the front door.
Steve Rogers : Why not? That's exactly what we're gonna do.
Howard Stark : Agent Carter, if we're not in too much of a hurry, I thought we could stop off in Lucerne for a late night fondue.
Peggy Carter : Stark is the best civilian pilot I've ever seen. He's mad enough to brave this airspace, we're lucky to have him.
Steve Rogers : So are you two...? Do you...? Fondue?
Steve Rogers : Peggy, that's not what you thought it was.
Peggy Carter : I don't think anything, Captain. Not one thing. You always wanted to be a soldier and now you are. Just like all the rest.
Steve Rogers : Well, what about you and Stark? How do I know you two haven't been... fonduing?
Peggy Carter : You still don't know a bloody thing about women!
Steve Rogers : I can do this all day!
James 'Bucky' Barnes : Why are you so keen to fight? There are so many important jobs.
Steve Rogers : What am I gonna do? Collect scrap metal...
James 'Bucky' Barnes : Yes!
Steve Rogers : ...in my little red wagon.
James 'Bucky' Barnes : Why not?
Steve Rogers : I'm not gonna sit in a factory, Bucky.
James 'Bucky' Barnes : I don't...
Steve Rogers : Bucky, come on! There are men laying down their lives. I got no right to do any less than them. That's what you don't understand. This isn't about me.
James 'Bucky' Barnes : Right. Cause you got nothing to prove.
Steve Rogers : [James is dressed in his army uniform] You get your orders?
James 'Bucky' Barnes : The one-o-seventh. Sergeant James Barnes. Shipping out for England first thing tomorrow.
Steve Rogers : I should be going.
James 'Bucky' Barnes : Come on, man. My last night! Gotta get you cleaned up.
Steve Rogers : Why? Where are we going?
James 'Bucky' Barnes : The future.
