Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) Poster

Hayley Atwell: Peggy Carter



  • Peggy Carter : Wait!

    [she kisses Steve] 

    Peggy Carter : Go get him.

    [surprised by the kiss, Steve looks at Colonel Phillips] 

    Col. Chester Phillips : I'm not kissing you.

  • Steve Rogers : [showing his shield to Peggy]  What do you think?

    [Peggy unloads her gun into the shield] 

    Peggy Carter : [sweetly]  Yes. I think it works.

  • 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] 

  • Peggy Carter : How do you feel?

    Steve Rogers : Taller.

  • Peggy Carter : You can't give me orders!

    Steve Rogers : The hell I can't! I'm a Captain!


  • Peggy Carter : You're late.

    [hold up broken transmitter] 

    Steve Rogers : I couldn't call my ride.

  • [Steve starts yelling] 

    Peggy Carter : Shut it down!

    Abraham Erskine : Kill the reactor, Mr. Stark! Turn it off! Kill it! Kill the reactor!

    Steve Rogers : [from within the chamber]  No! Don't! I can do this!

  • Peggy Carter : You have no idea how to talk to a woman, do you?

    Steve Rogers : I think this is the longest conversation I've had with one. Women aren't exactly lining up to dance with a guy they might step on.

  • 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.

  • Peggy Carter : [to soldiers in training]  Faster, ladies! Come on! My GRANDMOTHER has more life in her, God rest her soul. MOVE IT!

  • Col. Chester Phillips : [looking over the men]  You're not REALLY thinking about picking Rogers, are you?

    Abraham Erskine : I wasn't just THINKING about it. He is a clear choice.

    Col. Chester Phillips : When you brought a ninety-pound asthmatic onto my army base, I let it slide. I thought "What the hell, maybe he'd be useful to you like a gerbil." Never thought you'd pick him.

    Peggy Carter : [to soldiers doing push-ups]  UP!

    Col. Chester Phillips : You put a needle in that kid's arm it's gonna go right through him.

    Peggy Carter : [to the soldiers doing jumping jacks]  Come on, girls!

    Col. Chester Phillips : [looking at Steve's best effort but belabored execution]  Look at that. He's makin' me cry.

    Abraham Erskine : I am looking for qualities beyond the physical.

    Col. Chester Phillips : Do you know how long it took to set up this project? Of all the groveling I had to do in front of Senator What's-his-name's committee?

    Abraham Erskine : Yes, I'm well aware of your efforts.

    Col. Chester Phillips : Then throw me a bone. Hodge passed every test we gave him. He's big, he's fast, he obeys orders - he's a soldier.

    Abraham Erskine : He's a bully.

    Col. Chester Phillips : You don't win wars with niceness, doctor. You win wars with guts.

    [the Colonel pulls the pin of a grenade and throws it among the recruits] 

    Col. Chester Phillips : GRENADE!

  • Peggy Carter : Gentlemen, I'm Agent Carter. I supervise all operations of this division.

    Gilmore Hodge : What's with the accent, Queen Victoria? Thought I was signing up for the U.S. Army.

    Peggy Carter : What's your name, soldier?

    Gilmore Hodge : Gilmore Hodge, your Majesty.

    Peggy Carter : Step forward, Hodge.

    [Hodge steps forward] 

    Peggy Carter : Put your right foot forward.

    Gilmore Hodge : Are we dancing? Cause I got a few moves I know you'll like.

    [Peggy punches him in the face] 

  • Peggy Carter : Tell me, did you truly like your friend? Did you respect him?

    Steve Rogers : [surprised]  Yes!

    Peggy Carter : Well then, stop blaming yourself! Give your friend the respect of making his own decisions!

  • 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 : 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.

  • Steve Rogers : [after Howard and Peggy steal a plane to get Steve across the front lines]  You know, you two are going to be in a lot of trouble when you land.

    Peggy Carter : And you won't?

    Steve Rogers : Where I'm goin', if anybody yells at me I can just shoot 'em.

  • 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...

  • 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!

  • Peggy Carter : Did you have something against running away?

    Steve Rogers : You start running, they'll never let you stop. You stand up, push back. Can't say no forever, right?
