Iron Man  movie quotes (2008) starring Robert Downey Jr., Jeff Bridges, Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): They say the best weapon is one you never have to fire. 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.

Christine Everheart: Tony Stark! Christine Everheart, Vanity Fair magazine
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Hi, yeah okay, go.
Christine Everheart: Mr. Stark, you’ve been called the Da Vinci of our time; what do you say to that?
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Absolutely ridiculous, I don’t paint.
Christine Everheart: What do you say to your other nickname, the ‘Merchant of Death’?
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): That’s not bad.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): [toasting the military commanders to whom he’s just demonstrated a new missile system]To Peace.

Raza [terrorist leader]: You have until tomorrow to assemble my missile.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): I should be dead already … It must be for a reason … I just finally know … what I have to do …

Soldier: Is it cool if I get a picture with you?
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Yes. Yes it’s very cool. I don’t wanna see this on your Myspace page. [soldier holds up a ‘V for Victory’ sign]Please, no gang signs. [soldier puts his hand down]No, throw it up. I’m kidding.

Virginia ‘Pepper’ Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow): I thought you were finished making weapons?
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): This is a flight stabilizer and it’s perfectly harmless.
[gets blown away]

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Is it better to be feared or respected? And I’d say is it too much to ask for both?

Virginia ‘Pepper’ Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow): What’s going on here?
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Let’s face it, this is not the worst thing you’ve ever caught me doing.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): [reading the newspaper] Iron Man? That’s kinda catchy.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): No one’s allowed to talk, is that it? You’re not allowed to talk?
Military Driver: No, you intimidate them.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Good God! You’re a woman!

[after testing the suit’s capabilities]
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Yeah. I can fly.

Yinsen: [gazing at a helmet] That doesn’t look like a missile — What are you building, Stark?
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): I’m working on something big.

Jarvis: Sir, there are still terabytes of calculations still needed before an actual flight can be —
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): [interrupting] Jarvis, sometimes you’ve got to run before you can walk.

Jim Rhodes (Terrence Howard): What’s wrong with you?
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): What?
Jim Rhodes (Terrence Howard): Three hours.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): I got caught doing a piece for Vanity Fair.
Jim Rhodes (Terrence Howard): For three hours.   For three hours you got me standing here —
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Waiting on you now.   Let’s roll.

Jim Rhodes (Terrence Howard): That’s the coolest thing I’ve ever seen.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Not bad, huh?

Jim Rhodes (Terrence Howard): You sure you don’t have any tech in that area that I should know about?
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): [flying in that area in the Iron Man armor] Nope.
Soldier: Bogey spotted!
Jim Rhodes (Terrence Howard): Good, because I’m staring at one right now and it’s about to be blown to kingdom come.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): [avoiding fighter jets as Iron Man] That’s my exit.

Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges): Too bad that you had to involve Pepper in this.   I would have preferred that she lived.

Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges): Trying to rid the world of weapons, you gave it its’ best one ever!

Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges): You father, he helped give us the atomic bomb.   Now what kind of world would it be today if he was as selfish as you?

Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges): I never had a taste for this sort of thing, but I must admit, I’m deeply enjoying the suit!

Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges): Tony, we’re a weapons manufacturer.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Obi, I just, I don’t want a body count to be our only legacy.
Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges): That’s what we do.   We’re iron mongers.   We make weapons.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): It’s my name on the side of the building.
Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges): What we do keeps the world from falling into chaos.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Not based on what I saw.   We can do better.   We need to do something else.
Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges): Like what?   You want us to make baby bottles?

Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges): Weapons that will help steer the world back on course, put the balance of power back in our hands.   The right hands.

Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges): Tony, we’re a team, you understand?   There’s nothing that we can’t do if we stick together.   Like your father and I.

Virginia ‘Pepper’ Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow): You know, I, I, I don’t think I’m qualified to do this.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): No, you’re fine.   You’re the most capable, qualified, trustworthy person I’ve ever met.

Virginia ‘Pepper’ Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow): Is that the thing that’s keeping you alive?
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): It was.   It’s now an antique.   This is what will be keeping me alive for the forseeable future.

Virginia ‘Pepper’ Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow): I don’t, I actually don’t think you could tie your shoes without me.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): I can make it a week.
Virginia ‘Pepper’ Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow): Really?   What’s your social security number?

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): I don’t like it when you have plans.
Virginia ‘Pepper’ Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow): I’m allowed to have plans on my birthday.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): It’s your birthday?
Virginia ‘Pepper’ Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow): Yes.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): I knew that.   Already?
Virginia ‘Pepper’ Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow): Yeah.   Isn’t that strange? It’s the same date as last year.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Get yourself something nice from me.
Virginia ‘Pepper’ Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow): I already did.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): And?
Virginia ‘Pepper’ Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow): Oh, very nice.   Very tasteful. Thank you, Mr. Stark.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): You’re welcome, Miss Potts.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): You know what, I was naive before when they said, ‘Here’s a line, we don’t cross it, this is how we do business.’

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Being responsible, that’s a new direction for me — for the company.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): Iron Man, that’s kind of catchy, it’s got a nice ring to it.   It’s not technically accurate, you see it’s a gold-titanium alloy, but it’s kind of evocative, the imagery anyway —

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): I had my eyes opened.   I came to realize that I had more to offer this world than just making things that blow up.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.): I’m just not the hero type, clearly, with this laundry list of character defects, all the mistakes I’ve made —
