Tony Stark
Yinsen


They say the best weapon is one you never have to fire. I respectfully disagree. I prefer the weapon you only need to fire once. That's how Dad did it, that's how America does it, and it's worked out pretty well so far. I present to you the newest in Stark Industries' Freedom line. Find an excuse to let one of these [Jericho missiles] off the chain, and I personally guarantee you the bad guys won't even want to come out of their caves. [a Jericho launches and heads for the mountains in the distance] Ladies and gentlemen, for your consideration…[the Jericho's warheads detonate and kick up a fast-moving shock wave]…the Jericho.


Marine: Is it cool if I get a picture with you?
Tony Stark: Yes. Yes, it's very cool.
[The soldier sits next to Stark, and flashes a "peace" sign]
Tony Stark: I don't want to see this on your MySpace page. Please, no gang signs.
[The soldier lowers his hand]
Tony Stark: No, throw it up. I'm kidding. I love peace. I'd be out of a job with peace.

Tony Stark: [After seeing the gold 3-D render of his suit] A little ostentatious, don't you think?
Jarvis: [dripping with sarcasm] What was I thinking? You're usually so discreet.
Tony Stark: Tell you what. Throw a little hot-rod red in there.
Jarvis: Oh yes. That should help you keep a low profile.

Is it better to be feared or respected? I say, is it too much to ask for both?

Tony Stark: [As they're dancing] Am I making you uncomfortable?
Pepper Potts: Oh, no, I always forget to wear deodorant and dance with my boss in a room full of people I work with in a dress with no back.
Tony Stark: Well, you look great, you smell great. But I could fire you if that would take the edge off.
Pepper Potts: I honestly don't think you could tie your shoes without me.
Tony Stark: I'd make it a week.
Pepper Potts: Really. What's your social security number?
Tony Stark: [long pause] Five.
Pepper Potts: Five? Yeah, you're missing just a couple of digits there.
Tony Stark: The other eight? But I've got you for the other eight.

Jim Rhodes: [talking over phone] What the hell is that noise?
Tony Stark: I'm driving with the top down.
Jim Rhodes: Well, I need your help right now.
Tony Stark: Funny how that works, huh?
Jim Rhodes: Yeah. Speaking of funny, we got a weapons depot that was just blown up a few klicks from where you were being held.
Tony Stark: Well, I'd say that's a hot spot. Sounds... [takes a breath] like someone stepped in and did your job for you.
Jim Rhodes: Why do you sound out of breath, Tony?
Tony Stark: I'm not. I was just jogging through the canyon.
Jim Rhodes: I thought you were driving.
Tony Stark: Right, I was driving... to the canyon... where I'm going for a jog.
Jim Rhodes: You sure you don't have any tech in that area I should know about?
Tony Stark: Nope.
Jim Rhodes: Good, because we got a lock on something and we're about to blow it to kingdom come.
Tony Stark: [Two F-22 Raptors fall in position behind Stark] Whoops, there's my exit!

Jarvis: Sir, it appears his suit can fly.
Tony Stark: Duly noted. Take me to maximum altitude.
Jarvis: Sir, at 19% power, the odds of reaching that altitude ...
Tony Stark: [cutting in] I KNOW THE MATH! DO IT!!

Tony Stark: I never got to say goodbye to my father. There's questions I would've asked him. I would've asked him how he felt about what his company did, if he was conflicted, if he ever had doubts. Or maybe he was every inch of man we remember from the newsreels. I saw young Americans killed by the very weapons I created to defend them and protect them. And I saw that I had become part of a system that is comfortable with zero-accountability.
Press Reporter #1: Mr. Stark, what happened over there?
Tony Stark: I had my eyes opened. I came to realize that I had more to offer this world than just making things that blow up. And that is why, effective immediately, I am shutting down the weapons manufacturing division of Stark Industries.

Tony Stark: I just want you to reach in, and gently lift the wire out.
Pepper Potts: Is it safe?
Tony Stark: Yeah. It should be fine. It's just like Operation, just don't let it touch the socket or it'll go beep.
Pepper Potts: What do you mean operation?
Tony Stark: It's just a game. Nevermind. Just gently lift the wire, ok? Alright.
Pepper Potts: You know, I—I, uh—I don't think that I'm qualified to do that.
Tony Stark: No, no you're fine.You are the most capable qualified trustworthy person I've ever met. You'll do great. Is it too much to ask? 'Cause--
Pepper Potts: Ok, ok.
Tony Stark: —I really need your help here.
Pepper Potts: Oh. Ah. Ew, there's pus!
Tony Stark: It's not pus. It's an inorganic plasmic discharge, it's from the device, not my body.
Pepper Potts: It smells.
Tony Stark: Yeah, it does.

Christine Everheart: Mr. Stark, you've been called the Da Vinci of our time. What do you say to that?
Tony Stark: Absolutely ridiculous. I don't paint.
Christine Everheart: What do you say to your other nickname, the "Merchant of Death"?
Tony Stark: That's not bad.

Tony Stark: I don't like it when you have plans.
Pepper Potts: I'm allowed to have plans on my birthday.
Tony Stark: It's your birthday? [she nods] I knew that. ...already?
Pepper Potts: Yeah, isn't that funny? It's the same day as last year.
Tony Stark: Well, get yourself something nice from me.
Pepper Potts: I already did.
Tony Stark: And?
Pepper Potts: Oh, it was... very nice. Very tasteful. Thank you, Mr. Stark.
Tony Stark: You're welcome, Ms. Potts.

Tony Stark: [To a dying Yinsen] We gotta go. Come on, move with me. We have a plan, and we're going to stick to it.
Yinsen: This was always the plan, Stark.
Tony Stark: Come on, you're going to go see your family. Get up.
Yinsen: My family is dead Stark. And I'm going to see them now. It's okay. I want this. I want this.
Tony Stark: Thank you for saving me.
Yinsen: Don't waste it. Don't waste your life, Stark.

[AC/DC's Back in Black playing the background as the film opening song following the scene]
Tony Stark: I feel like you're driving me to court-martial, this is crazy. What did I do? I feel like you're going to pull over and snuff me. What, you're not allowed to talk? Hey. Forrest.
Male Soldier: We can talk, sir.
Tony Stark: Oh, I see. So, it's personal.
Female Soldier: No. You intimidate them.
Tony Stark: Good God, you're a woman. I honestly couldn't have called that. I mean, I'd apologize, but isn't that what we're going for here? I thought you were a soldier first.
Female Soldier: I'm an Airman.
Tony Stark: Well, you have excellent bone structure there. I'm kinda having a hard time not looking at you now. Is that weird?
[They all laugh]
Tony Stark: Come on! It's okay, laugh. Hey!

Jim Rhodes: [On the phone with Tony, after seeing the suit in action] This isn't a game. You do not send civilian equipment into my active war zone. Do you understand me? Do you understand that?
Tony Stark: It's not a piece of equipment. I'm in it, it's a suit.
Jim Rhodes: What?
Tony Stark: IT'S ME!
[screen shows the suit hanging on the bottom of a jet]

Christine Everheart: Have you ever lost an hour of sleep your whole life?
Tony Stark: I'd be prepared to lose a few with you.
