Quotes from the Movie Captain America: The First Avenger

General Patton has said that wars are fought with weapons, but they are won by men. We are going to win this war because we have the best men. And because they are going to get better. Much better. The Strategic Scientific Reserve is an Allied effort made up of the best minds in the free world. Our goal is to create the best army in history. But every army starts with one man. At the end of this week, we will choose that man. He will be the first in a new breed of super-soldier. And they will personally escort Adolf Hitler to the gates of Hell.

Col. Chester Phillips

You don't win wars with niceness, Doctor. [he takes a grenade and pulls the pin] You win wars with guts. [tosses it to where the candidates are training] Grenade!

Col. Chester Phillips

Well if it isn't the Star-Spangled Man With A Plan. What is your plan today?

Col. Chester Phillips

You and I are gonna have a conversation later that you won't enjoy.

Phillips

I can spell. I have signed more of these condolence letters today than I would care to count. But the name does sound familiar. I'm sorry.

Phillips

They're 30 miles behind the lines through some of the most heavily fortified territory in Europe. We'd lose more men than we'd save. But I don't expect you to understand that because you're a chorus girl.

Phillips

Well then, understand it somewhere else. If I read the posters correctly, you got someplace to be in 30 minutes.

Phillips

Tomorrow, HYDRA will stand master of the world, borne to victory on the wings of the Valkyrie. Our enemies' weapons will be powerless against us. If they shoot down one plane, hundreds more will rain fire upon them! If they cut off one head, two more shall take its place. Hail HYDRA.

Johann Schmidt/Red Skull

Gentlemen, you have come to see the results of our work. Let me show you. [shows them to his lab] Hitler speaks of a 1,000-year Reich, but he cannot feed his armies for a month. His troops spill their blood across every field in Europe, but still he is no closer to achieving his goals.

Johann Schmidt/Red Skull

Science. But I understand your confusion. Great power has always baffled primitive men. HYDRA is assembling an arsenal to destroy my enemies in one stroke, wherever they are, regardless of how many forces they possess, all in a matter of hours.

Schmidt

My weapons contain enough destructive power to decimate every hostile capital on Earth. Quite simply, gentlemen, I have harnessed the power of the gods.

Schmidt

My apologies, Doctor, but we both knew HYDRA could grow no further in Hitler's shadow. Hail HYDRA.

Schmidt

Arrogance may not be a uniquely American trait, but I must say, you do it better than anyone. But there are limits to what even you can do, Captain? Or did Erskine tell you otherwise?

Johann Schmidt

He resented my genius and tried to deny me what was rightfully mine. But he gave you everything. So, what made you so special?

Johann Schmidt

Of course you can, of course. But, unfortunately, I am on a tight schedule.

Johann Schmidt
