Loki: I am Loki of Asgard, and I am burdened with glorious purpose.
Nick Fury: We have no quarrel with your people.
Loki: An ant has no quarrel with a boot.
Nick Fury: You planning to step on us?
Loki: I come with glad tidings, of a world made free.
Nick Fury: Free from what?
Loki: Freedom. Freedom is life’s great lie. Once you accept that, in your heart, you will know peace.
Nick Fury: Yeah, you say peace. I kinda think you mean the other thing.

Tony Stark: You’re missing the point. There’s no throne. There is no version of this where you come out on top. Maybe your army comes, and maybe it’s too much for us, but it’s all on you. Because if we can’t protect the Earth, you can be damned well sure we’ll avenge it.

Loki: What have I to fear?
Tony Stark: The Avengers. It’s what we call ourselves, sort of like a team. “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” type thing.
Loki: Yes, I’ve met them.
Tony Stark: Yeah. Takes us a while to get any traction, I’ll give you that one but, let’s do a head count here: Your brother, the demi-god; a super soldier, a living legend who kind of lives up to the legend; a man with… breath-taking anger management issues; a couple of master assassins, and you, big fella, you’ve managed to piss off every single one of them.

Loki: Please tell me you’re going to try to appeal to my humanity?
Tony Stark: Actually I’m going to threaten you.
Loki: You should’ve left your armor on for that.

Loki: Your heroes are scattered, your floating fortress falls from the sky. Where is my disadvantage?
Coulson: You lack conviction.

World Security Council: Director Fury, the council has made a decision.
Nick Fury: I recognize the council has made a decision, but given that it’s a stupid-ass decision, I’ve elected to ignore it.
