  • Quotes (13)

    • The Other: The Tesseract has awakened. It is on a little world, a human world. They would wield its power, but our ally knows its workings as they never will. He is ready to lead and our force, our Chitauri, will follow. A world will be his. The universe, yours. And the humans, what can they do but burn?

    • The Other: (to Loki) You will have your war, Asgardian. If you fail, if the Tesseract is kept from us, there will be no realm, no barren moon, no crevice where he cannot find you. You think you know pain? He will make you long for something as sweet as pain.

    • Loki: I am Loki, of Asgard and I am burdened with glorious purpose.
      Selvig: Loki, brother of Thor.
      Fury: We have no quarrel with you people.
      Loki: An ant has no quarrel with a boot.

    • Stark: (to Thor) Doth mother know you wear-eth her drapes?

    • Iron Man: (Thor has just abducted Loki from the plane that the other Avengers are aboard.) And now there's that guy.
      Black Widow: Another Asgardian?
      Captain America: That guy's a friendly?
      Iron Man: Doesn't matter. If he frees Loki or kills him, the Tesseract's lost.
      Captain America: Stark, we need a plan of attack!
      Iron Man: I have a plan. Attack.

    • Rogers: (regarding Loki) This guy packs a wallop.
      Stark: Still, you are pretty spry for an older fellow. What's your thing, Pilates?
      Rogers: What?
      Stark: It's like calisthenics. You might have missed a couple of things, you know, doing time as a capsicle.

    • Captain America: I want to know why Loki let us take him. He's not leading an army from here.
      Banner: I don't think we should be focusing on Loki. That guy's brain is a bag full of cats. You could smell crazy on him.
      Thor: Have care how you speak. Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard. And he is my brother.
      Black Widow: He killed 80 people in two days.
      Thor: He's adopted.

    • Agent Maria Hill: When did you become an expert in thermonuclear astrophysics?
      Stark: Last night.

    • Factual errors:
      NAMCO Bandai, the video game company is spelled incorrectly twice in the end credits as "NAMECO Bandai". This error was corrected on the DVD and blu ray.

      There is a reserved parking sign in a scene filmed in Stuttgart that reads "Reservierten Parken". The correct German spelling would be "Reservierter Parkplatz".
