Quotes from the Movie Captain America: The First Avenger

Dr. Abraham Erskine. I represent the Strategic Scientific Reserve.

Erskine

Queens. 73rd Street and Utopia Parkway. Before that, Germany. This troubles you?

Erskine

Where are you from, Mr. Rogers? Is it New Haven? Or Paramus? Five exams in five different cities.

Erskine

No, It's not the exams I'm interested in. It's the five tries. But you didn't answer my question. Do you want to kill Nazis?

Erskine

Well, there are already so many big men fighting this war. Maybe what we need now is a little guy. I can offer you a chance. Only a chance.

Erskine

I suppose that is the only question that matters. [Displaying a bottle of schnapps] This is from Augsburg, my city. So many people forget that the first country the Nazis invaded was their own. You know, after the last war, my people struggled. they felt weak... they felt small. And then Hitler comes along with the marching, and the big show, and the flags, and the, and the... and he hears of me, and my work, and he finds me, and he says "You. You will make us strong." Well, I am not interested. So he sends the head of Hydra, his research division, a brilliant scientist by the name of Johann Schmidt. Now Schmidt is a member of the inner circle and he is ambitious. He and Hitler share a passion for occult power and Teutonic myth. Hitler uses his fantasies to inspire his followers. But for Schmidt, it is not fantasy. For him, it is real. He has become convinced there is a great power hidden in the earth, left here by the gods, waiting to be seized by a superior man. So when he hears about my formula and what it can do, he cannot resist. Schmidt must become that superior man.

Abraham Erskine

Yeah, but... there were other effects. The serum was not ready. But more important, the man. The serum amplifies everything inside, so good becomes great; bad becomes worse. This is why you were chosen. Because the strong man who has known power all his life, may lose respect for that power, but a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows... compassion.

Erskine

Get it, get it. Whatever happens tomorrow, you must promise me one thing. You will stay who you are, not a perfect soldier, but a good man.

Erskine

No no, wait wait, What Am I doing? No, You have procedure tomorrow. No fluids.

Erskine

I don't want to kill anyone. I don't like bullies. I don't care where they're from.

Rogers

There's not gonna be a safe landing. But I can try and force it down.

Rogers

There's not enough time. This thing's moving too fast and it's heading for New York. I got to put her in the water.

Rogers

Right now I'm in the middle of nowhere. If I wait any longer, a lot of people are gonna die. Peggy, this is my choice. [he puts his clock with her picture on one of the controls as he steers the ship down to the ice below] Peggy?

Rogers

We'll have the band play something slow. I'd hate to step on your-

Rogers

At ease, soldier! Look, I'm sorry about that little show back there, but we thought it best to break it to you slowly.
