Top 50 Quotes From Anthony Mackie

- Where is he?
- I don't know. He blew right by his time stamp.
- He should be here.
Sam: Get him back.
- SMART HULK: I'm trying.
Sam: Get him the hell back.
- Hey, I said I'm trying.
- Sam.

Falcon: That's what life is, dealing with things.

Falcon: What do we do, cap?
- We fight.
- This is gonna end well.
- They're not stopping.
- Neither are we.

Falcon: Trust me. Every time something gets better for one group, it gets worse for another.

[last lines]
Sam: You're going after him.
Steve: You don't have to come...
Sam: I know. When do we start?

Bucky: [in the back seat of a VW Beetle] Can you move your seat up?
Sam: No.

Falcon: [Talking about African-Americans] We built this country, bled for it. I'm not going to let anybody tell me I can't fight for it. Not after what everybody before me went through.

[Sam hands Karli's body to medics before approaching the government officials]
Ayla: Sam, thank you so much, from all of us.
Government: Sincerely. You did your part in dealing with those terrorists. Now we'll do ours.
Sam: Are you still going forward with resetting the borders?
Prime: Our peacekeeping troops will begin relocating people soon. The terrorists only set us back a bit.
Sam: You have to stop calling them terrorists.
Government: What else would we call them?
Sam: Your peacekeeping troops carrying weapons are forcing millions of people into settlements around the world, right? What do you think those people are gonna call you? These labels, 'terrorist,' 'refugee,' thug,' they're often used to get around the question, why?
Prime: Those settlements that happened five years ago, do you think it's fair for governments to have to support them?
Sam: Yes.
Government: And the people who reappeared, only to find someone else living in their family home, they just end up homeless? Look, I get it, but you have no idea how complicated this situation is.
Sam: You know what? You're right. And that's a good thing. We finally have a common struggle now. Think about that. For once, all the people who've been begging, and I mean, literally begging for you to feel how hard any given day is. Now you know. How did it feel to be helpless? Now if you could remember what it was like to be helpless, and face a force so powerful it could erase half the planet, you would know that you're about to have the exact same impact. This isn't about easy decisions, Senator.
Government: You just don't understand.
Sam: I'm a Black man carrying the stars and stripes. What don't I understand? Every time I pick this up, I know there are millions of people out there who are gonna hate me for it. Even now, here, I feel it. The stares, the judgment. And there's nothin' I can do to change it. Yet I'm still here. No super serum, no blond hair, or blue eyes. The only power I have is that I believe we can do better. We can't demand that people step up if we don't meet them halfway. Look, you control the banks. Shit, you can move borders! You can knock down a forest with an email, you can feed a million people with a phone call. But the question is, who's in the room when you're making those decisions? Hmmm? Is it the people you're gonna impact? Or is it just more people like you?
[pause]
Sam: I mean, this girl died trying to stop you, and no one has stopped for one second to ask why. You've gotta do better, Senator. You've gotta step up. Because if you don't, the next Karli will. And you don't wanna see 2.0. People believed in her cause so much, that they helped her defy the strongest governments in the world. Why do you think that is? Look, you people have just as much power as an insane god... or a misguided teenager. The question you have to ask yourself is, 'How are you going to use it?'

Spider: [after taking down the Falcon and webbing him up] Are those carbon fiber wings?
Falcon: Is this stuff coming out of you?

Sam: The people in this town are the most welcoming people in the world. They don't care if you wear small T-shirts or if you have six toes or if your mom's your aunt.
Bucky: Okay, I get it. I mean, you know, the people are nice.
Sam: But don't flirt with my sister.
Bucky: No.
Sam: 'Cause if you do, I'll have Carlos cut you up and feed you to the fish.
Bucky: Okay

Joaquin: Anyway, all we can do now is sit tight and just chill. Sometimes, there's nothing to do until there's something to do.
Falcon: That's bizarrely wise.
Joaquin: [grins] Well, I'm a bizarrely wise man, Sam.

Secret: I'm sorry, wait. Who are you?
Sam: I'm Captain America.
Secret: I thought Captain America was on the Moon..?

Steve: We have nowhere else to go.
Natasha: Everyone we know is trying to kill us.
Sam: [takes them in] Not everyone...

Baron: You must have really looked up to Steve. But I realized something when I met him. The danger with people like him, America's Super Soldiers, is that we put them on pedestals.
Sam: Watch your step, Zemo.
Baron: They become symbols. Icons. And then we start to forget about their flaws. From there, cities fly, innocent people die, movements are formed, wars are fought.
Baron: [to Barnes] You remember that, right? As a young soldier sent to Germany to stop a mad icon. Do we want to live in a world full of people like the Red Skull?

Sam: There is no such thing as on time. You're either early or late.

Sam: [ON SPEAKERS]
- Hey, Cap, you read me?
- Cap, it's Sam.
- Can you hear me?
- On your left.

Sam: [On radio] Heads up, cap.
- German special forces, approaching from the south.
- Understood.

Scott: Ca... Captain America...
[shakes Steve's hand vigorously]
Steve: Mr. Lang.
Scott: It's an honor. I'm shaking your hand too long. Wow, this is awesome!
[turns to Wanda]
Scott: Captain America! I know you, too. You're great!
[sighs, then grips Steve's muscles]
Scott: Jeez... Uh, look, I wanna say, I know you know a lot of super-people so... thinks for thanking of me.
[Steve grins]
Scott: [to Sam] Hey, man!
Sam: What's up, Tic-Tac?
Scott: Uh, good to see you. Look, what happened last time was...
Sam: It was a great audition, but it'll...
[chuckles]
Sam: It'll never happen again.
Steve: Did he tell you what we're up against?
Scott: Something about some... psycho assassins?
Steve: We're outside the law on this one, so if you come with us, you're a wanted man.
Scott: Yeah, well, what else is new?

Falcon: [after being trapped by Spider-Man] I don't know if you've been in a fight before, but there's usually not this much talking.
Spider: All right, sorry. My bad.

Sam: I can't run in these heels!

James: I see you're gonna make me ask. Why didn't you take up the mantle?
Sam: When Steve first told me about the shield, the first words I said were, "It feels like it belongs to someone else." That someone else is Steve.

Baron: Sam, you can't hold out hope for Karli. No matter what you saw in her, she's gone. And we cannot allow that she and her acolytes become yet another faction of gods amongst real people. Super Soldiers cannot be allowed to exist.
Sam: Isn't that how gods talk?

Steve: Attention all S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, this is Steve Rogers. You've heard a lot about me over the last few days. Some of you were even ordered to hunt me down. But I think it's time to tell the truth. S.H.I.E.L.D. is not what we thought it was. It's been taken over by HYDRA. Alexander Pierce is their leader. The S.T.R.I.K.E. and Insight crew are HYDRA as well. I don't know how many more, but I know they're in the building. They could be standing right next to you. They almost have what they want. Absolute control. They shot Nick Fury. And it won't end there. If you launch those helicarriers today, HYDRA will be able to kill anyone that stands in their way. Unless we stop them. I know I'm asking a lot. But the price of freedom is high. It always has been. And it's a price I'm willing to pay. And if I'm the only one, then so be it. But I'm willing to bet I'm not.
Sam: Did you write that down first, or was it off the top of your head?

Sam: I have a feeling they might be a part of the big three.
Bucky: What big three?
Sam: Androids, aliens, and wizards.
Bucky: That's not a thing.
Sam: That's definitely a thing.
Bucky: No, it's not.
Sam: Every time we fight, we fight one of the three.
Bucky: So who are you fighting now, Gandalf?

- Sam, southwest rooftop.
Sam: Who the hell's the other guy?
- About to find out.
- Sam.
- Got him.

Sam: They cleared the bionic staring machine, and he's killed almost everyone he's met.
Bucky: I heard that.

Bucky: Your mom's name was Sarah. You used to wear newspapers in your shoes.
Steve: You can't read that in a museum.
Sam: Just like that, we're supposed to be cool?

Sam: He blew up the U.N., he killed King T'Chaka and framed you for it. Did you forget that? You think the Wakandans forgot about it? It's a rhetorical question. They didn't.

Sam: I'm sorry I didn't call. But after the Blip and the chaos, I just...
Sharon: Look, you know the whole hero thing is a joke, right? I mean, the way you gave up that shield, deep down, you must know it's all hypocrisy.
Baron: He knows. And not so deep down.

Falcon: [over the radio] Do I hear Sharon?
Bucky: Unfortunately
Sharon: Hey, Sam. I thought I'd get the band back together.
Falcon: hank you. You're risking a lot coming here.
Sharon: I hear pardons aren't all they're cracked up to be anyway.
Bucky: Depends on the therapist.

Sam: You up for a little tough love? You wanna climb out of that hell you're in. Do the work. Do it.
Bucky: I've been making amends.
Sam: No, you weren't amending, you were avenging. You were stopping all the wrongdoers you enabled as the Winter Soldier because you thought it would bring you closure. You go to these people and say "sorry" because you think it'll make you feel better, right? But you gotta make them feel better. You gotta go to them and be of service. I'm sure there's at least one person in that book who needs closure about something, and you're the only person who can give it to them.
Bucky: There'll probably be a dozen.
Sam: That's cool. Start with one.

Bucky: I got a vibranium arm. I can take them.
Sam: And I can fly. Who gives a shit?

Bucky: So what are you doing here?
Sharon: I stole Steve's shield, remember?
Sharon: [to Sam] I also took the wings for your ass so that you could save his ass from HIS ass.
[points at Zemo]
Sharon: Unlike you, I didn't have the Avengers to back me up. So... I'm off the grid in Madripoor.
Sam: Hey, don't blow that smoke at me, I was on the run too.
Sharon: Was, is - big difference.

Sam: So you like cats?
Steve: Sam...
Sam: What? Dude shows up dressed like a cat and you don't wanna know more?
Steve: Your suit. It's vibranium?
T'Challa: The Black Panther has been the protector of Wakanda for generations. A mantle passed from warrior to warrior. And now because your friend murdered my father, I also wear the mantle of king. So I ask you, as both warrior and king, how long do you think you can keep your friend safe from me?

Winter: [webbed down after the Falcon got rid of Spider-Man] You couldn't have done that earlier?
Falcon: [also webbed down] I hate you.

Sam: You gotta stop looking to other people to tell you who you are.

Sam: Enjoy your ride, Buck.
Bucky: No, you can't call me that.
Sam: Why not? That's what Steve called you.
Bucky: Steve knew me longer, and Steve had a plan.

Sam: Hey, Cap, how do we know the good guys from the bad guys?
Steve: If they're shooting at you, they're bad.

Joaquin: Sometimes there's nothing to do until there's something to do.
Sam: That's bizarrely wise.
Joaquin: Well, I'm a bizarrely wise man, Sam.

[about some vibrators]
Adrian: There's some complex engineering in these things.

Sam: [wearing a garish suit] I'm the only one who looks like a pimp.
Baron: Only an American would assume a fashion-forward black man looks like a pimp. You look exactly like the man you're supposed to be playing: the sophisticated, charming African rake named Conrad Mack, a.k.a. the Smiling Tiger.
Sam: He even has a bad nickname.

John: And we're pretty sure it's one of the Big Three, so...
Sam: Aliens, androids, or wizards?
John: Pretty sure.
Bucky: There's no such thing as wizards.
John: All right, then it's aliens, or androids...
Sam: Or Super Soldiers.

Sam: Trust me. Every time something gets better for one group, it gets bad for another.

Sam: Don't do that bitter, old man thing with me.
Isaiah: If you ain't bitter, you're blind.

Bucky: You call me when you have a lead, and I'll be there. Not necessarily as a team.
Sam: Nope.
Bucky: We're not that good.
Sam: Definitely not.
Bucky: We're professionals.
Sam: Definitely.
Bucky: And, uh, we're partners.
Sam: Co-workers.
Bucky: But we're also a couple of guys with a mutual friend.
Sam: Friend's now gone.
Bucky: So we're a couple of guys.
Sam: I can live with that.
Bucky: Perfect.

Bucky: So what are you doing here?
Sharon: I stole Steve's shield, remember?
[to Sam]
Sharon: I also took the wings for your ass so that you could save his ass
[Bucky's]
Sharon: from his ass
[Zemo's]
Sharon: . Unlike you, I didn't have the Avengers to back me up. So... I'm off the grid in Madripoor.
Falcon: Hey, don't blow that smoke at me. I was on the run, too.
Sharon: Was. "Is" Big difference.

Adrian: Hey, is that breast milk?
Paul: What?
Adrian: Is that breast milk?
Paul: Why would that be breast milk?
Adrian: 'Cause this is. Listen: You take this, you put it in there, and you got the real HGH. I'm talkin' about a steroid shake. I got this pregnant chick I buy it from - she real clean, too.
Paul: No...
Adrian: No, no, no, for real, she just got her tests and everything. Oh, my - You ever suck a pregnant woman titty? Oh, my god, this so good. Come on, try some.
[off no answer]
Adrian: It'll make you great, man. You already big, but you could be bigGER. You know? I'm big - I'mma be swole, though. Walk sideways through doors. You want some? We can be titty brothers.
[laughs]
Adrian: Yeah!
Paul: I'm gonna go with "No." Excuse me.

Sam: I assume you're not gonna move your seat up
Bucky: No.

Falcon: You don't have to trust Redwing. But I'm gonna go see if he's right. 'Cause I have a feeling they might be part of the Big Three.
Bucky: What big three?
Falcon: The Big Three.
Bucky: What Big Three?
Falcon: Androids, aliens and wizards.
Bucky: That's not a thing.
Falcon: That's-that's definitely a thing.
Bucky: No, it's not.
Falcon: Every time we fight, it's one of the three.
Bucky: So who are you fighting now, Gandalf?
Falcon: Ev- How do you know about Gandalf?
Bucky: I read The Hobbit. In 1937. When it first came out.
Falcon: So you see my point?
Bucky: No. I don't. There are no wizards.
Falcon: Doctor Strange.
Bucky: He is a sorcerer.
Falcon: Ah-ah.
[chuckles]
Falcon: A sorcerer is a wizard without a hat.

John: See, a milkman's job is never done. It's a big world out there, but at the end of the day all that matters is me, Evelyn, and the road.
