Nick Fury: In case you try to escape, if you so much as scratch that glass. Thirty thousand feet, straight down in a steel trap. Ant, boot.
Loki: It is an impressive cage, one not I think built for me.
Nick Fury: Built for something a lot stronger than you.
Loki: Oh I’ve heard; the mindless beast, makes play he’s still a man. How desperate are you? That you call on such lost creatures to defend you?
Nick Fury: How desperate am I? You threaten my world with war, you steal a force you can’t hope to control, you talk about peace, and you kill ’cause it’s fun. You have made me very desperate. You might not be glad that you did.
Loki: Ooo, it burns you to have come so close. To have the Tesseract, to have power. Unlimited power. And for what? A warm light for all mankind to share? And then to be reminded what real power is.
Nick Fury: Well, let me know if ‘real power’ wants a magazine or something.

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.
