Iron Man (Tony Stark) Quotes from Iron Man Movie (2008)

Tony Stark: The truth is… I am Iron Man.


Tony Stark: Iron Man. That’s kind of catchy. It’s got a nice ring to it. I mean, it’s not technically accurate. The suit’s a gold-titanium alloy, but it’s kind of evocative, the imagery, anyway.


Tony Stark: Give me a scotch. I’m starving.


Tony Stark: What’s the world coming to when a guy’s got to crash his own party?


Tony Stark: Sometimes you got to run before you can walk.


Tony Stark: I’ve been called many things. “Nostalgic” is not one of them.


Tony Stark: I came to realize that I have more to offer this world than just making things that blow up.


Tony Stark: Doesn’t it kind of defeat the whole purpose of having your own plane if it departs before you arrive?


Tony Stark: My old man had a philosophy, “Peace means having a bigger stick than the other guy.”


Tony Stark: Yeah, peace. I love peace. I’d be out of a job with peace.


Tony Stark: I shouldn’t be alive… unless it was for a reason. I’m not crazy, Pepper. I just finally know what I have to do. And I know in my heart that it’s right.


Tony Stark: It’s an imperfect world, but it’s the only one we got. I guarantee you the day weapons are no longer needed to keep the peace, I’ll start making bricks and beams for baby hospitals.


Tony Stark: There is nothing except this. There’s no art opening, no charity, nothing to sign. There’s the next mission, and nothing else.


Tony Stark: Is it better to be feared or respected? I say, is it too much to ask for both?


Tony Stark: They say that the best weapon is the one you never have to fire. I respectfully disagree. I prefer the weapon you only have 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: You’ve been called the Da Vinci of our time. What do you say to that?

Tony Stark: Absolutely ridiculous. I don’t paint.


Tony Stark: Let’s face it, this is not the worst thing you’ve caught me doing.


Tony Stark: Well, you look great, you smell great. But I could fire you if that would take the edge off.


Ramirez: I’m an airman.

Tony Stark: Well, you have actually excellent bone structure there. I’m kinda having a hard time not looking at you now. Is that weird?


Tony Stark: Yeah, I can fly.


Tony Stark: If I were Iron Man, I’d have this girlfriend who knew my true identity. She’d be a wreck. She’d always be worrying I was going to die, yet so proud of the man I’ve become. She’d be wildly conflicted, which would only make her more crazy about me…


Tony Stark: It’s funny, I thought with it being my plane and all that it would just wait for me.


Tony Stark: What’s better, winning all that money or not caring about it?


Tony Stark: It’s not a piece of equipment, I’m in it! It’s a suit! It’s ME!


Tony Stark: I’m sorry. This is the fun-vee. The hum-drum-vee is back there.


Tony Stark: Two vodka martinis, extra dry, extra olives, extra… fast.


Tony Stark: Hogan, drive. Cheeseburger first, then press conference.


Tony Stark: Sheesh o besh.

Iron Man (Tony Stark) Quotes from Iron Man 2 Movie (2010)

Tony Stark: What’s the use of having and owning a race car if you don’t drive it?


Tony Stark: You have a big gun. You are not the big gun.


Tony Stark: Dead for almost 20 years; still taking me to school.


Tony Stark: I told you I don’t wanna join your super-secret boy band.


Tony Stark: Sorry, pal, but Iron Man doesn’t have a sidekick.


Tony Stark: My bond is with the people. And I will serve this great nation at the pleasure of myself. If there’s one thing I’ve proven it’s that you can count on me to pleasure myself.


Tony Stark: I’m not a joiner, but I’ll consider secretary of defense, if you ask nice. We can amend the hours a little bit.


Tony Stark: I’m not saying I’m responsible for this country’s longest run of uninterrupted peace in 35 years! It’s not about me. It’s not about you, either. It’s about legacy, the legacy left behind for future generations. It’s not about us!


Tony Stark: She’s fluent in French, Italian, Russian, Latin. Who speaks Latin?


Senator Stern: My priority is to get the Iron Man weapon turned over to the people of the United States of America.

Tony Stark: Well, you can forget it. I am Iron Man. The suit and I are one. To turn over the Iron Man suit would be to turn over myself, which is tantamount to indentured servitude or prostitution, depending on what state you’re in. You can’t have it.


Senator Stern: Look, I’m no expert…

Tony Stark: In prostitution? Of course not, you’re a senator. Come on!


Senator Stern: I think we’re done with the point that he’s making. I don’t think there’s any reason…

Tony Stark: The point is you’re welcome, I guess.


Tony Stark: Speaking of thieves, where’d you get this design? You look like you have friends in low places.


Ivan Vanko: My father is the reason you’re alive.

Tony Stark: No, the reason I’m alive is because you made a shot, and you missed.


Tony Stark: Where will you be watching the world consume me from? Oh, that’s right, a prison cell. I’ll send you a bar of soap.


Tony Stark: That tastes like coconut. And metal. Oh wow, yeah!


Tony Stark: Oh God, are you gonna steal my kidney and sell it? Could you please not do anything awful for five seconds? What did she just do to me?


Tony Stark: Yes, for the moment, I’m not dying. Thank you.


Tony Stark: Drop your socks and grab your crocs, we’re about to get wet on this ride


Tony Stark: Hey, you weren’t supposed to be listening to that. Get lost.


Pepper Potts: Have you been drinking?

Tony Stark: Chlorophyll.


Tony Stark: You! I swear to God, I’ll dismantle you! I’ll soak your motherboard, turn you into a wine rack!


Tony Stark: You sound pretty spry for a dead guy.


Tony Stark: It’s good to be back!


Tony Stark: Contrary to popular belief, I know exactly what I’m doing…


Pepper Potts: My point is; we have already awarded contracts to the wind farm people.

Tony Stark: Yeah. Don’t say “wind farm.” I’m already feeling gassy.


Tony Stark: I’m sorry. I don’t wanna get on the wrong foot. Do I look at the patch or the eye? Honest, I’m a bit hung over. I’m not sure if you’re real or if I’m having…

Nick Fury: I am very real. I’m the realest person you’re ever gonna meet.


Tony Stark: She’s right. The party’s over. Then again, the party was over for me, like, an hour and a half ago. The after party starts in fifteen minutes. And if anybody, Pepper, doesn’t like it, there’s the door.


Justin Hammer: Anthony. Is that you? Hey, pal! How ya doin’?

Tony Stark: My least favorite person on Earth, Justin Hammer.


Tony Stark: It’s a hi-tech prosthesis. That’s actually the most apt description I can make of it.


Tony Stark: I don’t care about the liberal agenda any more, it’s boring.

Iron Man (Tony Stark) Quotes from Marvel’s The Avengers Movie (2012)

Tony Stark: It’s good to meet you, Dr. Banner. Your work on anti-electron collisions is unparalleled. And I’m a huge fan of the way you lose control and turn into an enormous green rage monster.


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!


Tony Stark: Following’s not really my style.


Thor: You have no idea what you are dealing with.

Tony Stark: Uh, Shakespeare in The Park? Doth mother know you weareth her drapes?


Loki: The Chitauri are coming. Nothing will change that. What have I to fear?

Tony Stark: The Avengers. That’s what we call ourselves; we’re sort of like a team. ‘Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ type thing.


Tony Stark: What’s the stat, Rogers?

Steve Rogers: It seems to be powered by some sort of electricity!

Tony Stark: …well, you’re not wrong.


Steve Rogers: Big man in a suit of armor. Take that off, what are you?

Tony Stark: Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.


Steve Rogers: Always a way out… You know, you may not be a threat, but you better stop pretending to be a hero.

Tony Stark: A hero? Like you? You’re a lab rat, Rogers. Everything special about you came out of a bottle!


Thor: This is beyond you, metal man. Loki will face Asgardian justice.

Tony Stark: He gives up the Cube, he’s all yours. Until then, stay out of the way, tourist.


Tony Stark: The Avengers initiative was scrapped, I thought. And I didn’t even qualify.

Pepper Potts: I didn’t know that either.

Tony Stark: Apparently I’m volatile, self-obsessed, and don’t play well with others.

Pepper Potts: That I did know.


Tony Stark: I have a plan: attack!


Tony Stark: What just happened? Please tell me nobody kissed me.

Steve Rogers: We won.

Tony Stark: Alright. Hey. Alright. Good job, guys. Let’s just not come in tomorrow. Let’s just take a day. Have you ever tried shawarma? There’s a shawarma joint about two blocks from here. I don’t know what it is, but I wanna try it.


Loki: Please tell me you’re going to appeal to my humanity.

Tony Stark: Uh, actually I’m planning to threaten you.

Loki: You should have left your armor on for that.

Tony Stark: Yeah. It’s seen a bit of “mileage” and you got the “glow-stick of destiny”. Would you like a drink?

Loki: Stalling me won’t change anything.

Tony Stark: No, no no, threatening! No drink? You sure? I’m having one.


Steve Rogers: Stark, are you seeing any of this?

Tony Stark: Seeing, still working on believing.


Agent Phil Coulson: Mr. Stark, we need to talk.

Tony Stark: You have reached the life model decoy of Tony Stark, please leave a message.

Agent Phil Coulson: This is urgent.

Tony Stark: Then leave it urgently.


Pepper Potts: Phil! Come in.

Tony Stark: “Phil?” Uh, his first name is “Agent.”


Tony Stark: How does Fury even see these?

Maria Hill: He turns.

Tony Stark: Sounds exhausting.


Tony Stark: You know, I’ve got a cluster of shrapnel, trying every second to crawl its way into my heart. This stops it. This little circle of light. It’s part of me now, not just armour. It’s a… terrible privilege.


Steve Rogers: I swear, Stark, one more wisecrack out of you…

Tony Stark: Verbal threat! Threatening! I’m being threatened!


Tony Stark: Make a move, Reindeer Games…


Steve Rogers: Is everything a joke to you?

Tony Stark: Funny things are.


Tony Stark: An intelligence agency that fears intelligence? Historically, not awesome.


Steve Rogers: You think Fury’s hiding something?

Tony Stark: He’s a spy. Captain. He’s THE spy. His secrets have secrets.


Tony Stark: Give yourself some credit, please. Stark Tower is your baby. Give yourself… 12% of the credit.


Tony Stark: No hard feelings, Point Break. You’ve got a mean swing.

Tony Stark: I’m Tony Stark. I build neat stuff, got a great girl, occasionally save the world. So why can’t I sleep?

Tony Stark: You know what keeps going through my head? Where’s my sandwich?

Tony Stark: Wait, you’re guilt tripping me aren’t you?


Tony Stark: Please don’t tell me there’s a 12-year-old kid in the car that I’ve never met.


Colonel James Rhodes: Well, look, I gotta change it every time you hack in, Tony.

Tony Stark: It’s not the ’80s, nobody says “hack” anymore. Give me your login.

Tony Stark: That’s the thing about smart guys: we always cover our ass!


Tony Stark: I’m sorry, did I disturb your selective napping?


Tony Stark: Here’s a little Holiday greeting I’ve been wanting to send to the Mandarin. I just didn’t know how to phrase it until now. My name is Tony Stark and I’m not afraid of you.

And on the off-chance you’re a man, here’s my home address: 10880 Malibu Point, 90265. I’ll leave the door unlocked. That’s what you wanted, right?

Tony Stark: Some people say progress is a bad thing. But try having a magnet in your chest keeping you alive.


Tony Stark: You know, it’s moments like these when I realize how much of a superhero I am.


Tony Stark: You experience things and then they’re over, and you still can’t explain them. Gods, aliens, other dimensions. I’m just a man in a can. The only reason I haven’t cracked up is probably because you moved in. Which is great. I love you. I’m lucky. But honey, I can’t sleep. You go to bed, I come down here. I do what I know. I tinker. I… Threat is imminent. And I have to protect the one thing that I can’t live without. That’s you. And my suits, they’re, uh… Machines. They’re part of me.


Tony Stark: You got a minute to live. Fill it with words.


Tony Stark: A Hispanic Scott Baio? I’m sorry. Is that me?

Iron Man (Tony Stark) Quotes from Avengers: Age of Ultron Movie (2015)

Tony Stark: Oh, actually, he’s the boss. I just pay for everything, and design everything, and make everyone look cooler.

Tony Stark: Please be a secret door, please be a secret door, please be a secret door… Yay!

Tony Stark: It’s the end, the end of the path I started us on.


Tony Stark: Clint, you’ve had a tough week. We won’t hold it against ya if you can’t get it up.

Tony Stark: Avengers… time to work for a living.


Tony Stark: Look, it’s been a really long day, like, Eugene O’Neill long, so how’s about we skip to the part where you’re useful?


Tony Stark: Wait. I know that guy. From back in the day. He operates off the African coast, black market arms. There are conventions, alright? You meet people, I didn’t sell him anything.


James Rhodes: Yes! Now this is going to be a good story.

Tony Stark: Yep. If you live to tell it.

Tony Stark: How quickly can we buy this building?

Tony Stark: All right, I’ve run out of patience, Underoos!


Tony Stark: You ever been to Germany?

Peter Parker: No.

Tony Stark: Yeah, we don’t really need to start a conversation.


Tony Stark: Manchurian Candidate, you’re killing me. We’re on a truce. Put the gun down.

Tony Stark: Oh really? You two knew each other? He never mentioned that. Maybe only a thousand times. God, I hated you.


Tony Stark: It’s a 100 acres with a lap pool. It’s got a screening room. There’s worse way to protect people. She’s not a US Citizen and they don’t grant visas to Weapons of Mass Destruction.

Tony Stark: You know; I’m having a hard time believing she’s someone’s aunt.

Tony Stark: I was wrong about you. The whole world was wrong about you.


Tony Stark: Boy, you know me so well. Actually, I’m nursing an electromagnetic headache. That’s what’s going on, Cap. It’s just pain. It’s discomfort. Who’s putting coffee grounds in the disposal? Am I running a Bed and Breakfast for a biker gang?

Steve Rogers: I’m not getting that shield back, am I?

Sam Wilson: That’s cold.

Tony Stark: Warmer than jail!


Tony Stark: Who else knows, anybody?

Spider-Man: Nobody.

Tony Stark: Not even your unusually attractive aunt.


Natasha Romanoff: We played this wrong.

Tony Stark: We? Boy, it must be hard to shake the whole double agent thing, huh? It sticks in the DNA.


Tony Stark: All right, we’re done. You’re gonna turn Barnes over, you’re gonna come with us, now, because it’s us, or a squad of J-SOC guys with no compunction about being impolite.

Iron Man (Tony Stark) Quotes from Avengers: Infinity War Movie (2018)

Dr. Stephen Strange: For what? Nearly blasting me into space?

Tony Stark: Who just saved your magical ass? Me.


Tony Stark: If Thanos needs all six, why don’t we just stick this one down a garbage disposal?


Dr. Stephen Strange: If we don’t do our jobs…

Tony Stark: What is your job, exactly, besides making balloon animals?


Tony Stark: I’m sorry, earth is closed today. You better pack it up and get outta here.


Tony Stark: You are one loyal piece of outerwear.


Tony Stark: That means get lost, Squidward!


Tony Stark: Piece of cake Quill.

Tony Stark: Your math is blowing my mind.


Tony Stark: Cap and I fell out hard. We’re not on speaking terms.

Iron Man (Tony Stark) Quotes from Avengers: Endgame Movie (2019)

Tony Stark: I love you 3000.


Tony Stark: I can’t help everybody.


Tony Stark: Honestly, at this exact second, I thought you were a Build-a-Bear.


Tony Stark: And I… am… Iron Man!


Tony Stark: It’s not about how much we lost. It’s about how much we have left. We’re the Avengers. We gotta finish this. You trust me?


Tony Stark: What are you talking about? I didn’t fight him. No, he wiped my face with a planet while the wizard gave away the store. That’s what happened, there’s no fight…


Tony Stark: I said we’d lose. You said, “we’ll do that together too.” Guess what, Cap? We lost, and you weren’t there. But that’s what we do, right? Our best work after the fact? We’re the Avengers? Not the Prevengers, right?


Tony Stark: I believe the most likely outcome will be our collective demise.


Tony Stark: I’m gonna stop you right there, Scott. Are you seriously telling me that your plan to save the universe is based on “Back to the Future?”


Tony Stark: You’re drifting left. One side, there, Lebowski.


Steve Rogers: Almost everyone in this room has had an encounter with at least one of the six Infinity Stones.

Tony Stark: Or, substitute the word encounter with ‘damn near been killed by’ one of the six Infinity Stones.


Steve Rogers: Well, what are we gonna do now?

Tony Stark: You know what, give me a break, Steve. I just got hit in the head with a Hulk.


Tony Stark: Quantum fluctuation messes with the Planck’s scale, which then triggers the Doidge proposition. Can we agree on that? In layman’s terms, it means, you are not coming home.


Tony Stark: No, you accidentally survived. It’s a billion-in-one cosmic fluke. Now you want to pull out… what you call it?

Scott Lang: A time heist.

Tony Stark: Yeah, a time heist. Of course. Why didn’t I think of this before? Oh, because it’s laughable, ‘cos it’s pipe dream.


Natasha Romanoff: Tony, we have to take a stand.

Tony Stark: We did stand and yet here we are.


Tony Stark: You lose this again, I’m keeping it.


Tony Stark: Ok, you heard the man. Stroke those keys, jolly green.


Scott Lang: If you do this and it doesn’t work, you’re not coming back.

Tony Stark: Thanks for the pep talk, piss-ant.


Tony Stark: I just want peace. Turns out resentment is corrosive, and I hate it.


Tony Stark: You trust me?

Steve Rogers: I do.

Tony Stark: Your call.


Tony Stark: All right, move it, Stuart Little. Things are getting dicey out here. Let’s go.


Tony Stark: We got a shot at getting these stones, but I gotta tell you my priorities. Bring back what we lost, I hope, yes. Keep what I found, I have to, at all costs. And maybe not die trying would be nice.


Ant-Man: You promise me you won’t die?

Tony Stark: We’re only giving me a mild cardiac dysrhythmia.

Ant-Man: That doesn’t sound mild.


Natasha Romanoff: That Time Stone guy.

Bruce Banner: Doctor Strange.

Natasha Romanoff: Yeah, what… what kind of doctor was he?

Tony Stark: Ear/nose/throat meets rabbit-from-hat.


Steve Rogers: What are you doing here?

Tony Stark: It’s the EPR Paradox. Instead of pushing Lang through time, you might’ve wound up pushing time through Lang. It’s tricky, dangerous. Somebody could have cautioned you against it.

Steve Rogers: You did.

Tony Stark: Oh, did I? Well, thank God I’m here.

Interesting Facts about Iron Man Movies

Now it’s time for some fun and interesting facts about Iron Man 1-3 movies. Ready? Here we go!

  1. Robert Downey Jr. in a Tuxedo – In the first Iron Man movie, both Kevin Feige (producer) and Jon Favreau (director) really wanted actor Robert Downey Jr. to get a shot for the role of Tony Stark. They liked his talent as an actor, but also what he went through in real life, something that can mirror in the movie’s role as well. Now, actors with years of experience skip the part of screen test, but Downey was so eager to get the part, that he showed up for a screen test wearing a tuxedo, just as if he was the real Tony Stark. He was able to impress the executives of Marvel and was signed for a measly amount of $2.5 million, which is nothing in Hollywood terms. It is estimated that for his part in The Avengers, he got $50 million.
  2. Other Candidates for the Role of Tony Stark – Robert Downey Jr. wasn’t the first choice for the part of Tony Stark. Before him, other actors were considered, such as Tom Cruise, Nicolas Cage, Patrick Dempsey, and Colin Farrel. As stated in above, Feige and Favreau really believed in Downey Jr. who eventually got the part, and rightfully so if you ask me.
  3. Iron Man 1 Is Improvised – Well, not all of it. You see, the script for the first movie was never really finished, so Downey and the director used to improvise before shooting. Downey really wanted to get jokes and humour into the movie, and so he improvised with the encouragement from the director. So there you have it. You don’t always need a good script to make a good movie, you need talented actors and funny people to make it work and earn millions of dollars.
  4. Actual Photos of Downey Jr. and Mickey Rourke – During Iron Man 2 movie, news clipping shown in the movie show Ivan Vanko and Tony Stark when they were young. In fact, most of these are actual photos of the two actors as they came to fame during the 1980s.
  5. Visiting a Real Russian Prison – In order to prepare as best as possible for the role of Ivan Vanko, actor Mickey Rourke decided to visit Butyrka Prison in Moscow to study the Russian culture and do some research. He said that everyone was really nice to him and he enjoyed his time there. Good thing it wasn’t behind closed bars…
  6. The Iron Man and Captain America Connection – In Iron Man 2 movie, Tony Stark creates a new arc reactor with something that reminds and resembles the shield of Captain America. This same shield was also seen in the first Iron Man movie, lying on Tony Stark’s office desk. This is of course one of many easter eggs seen in Marvel movies, and the reason for it, is to reference Captain America who was one of the founding members of The Avengers along with Iron Man.
  7. Not Filming the End – Robert Downey Jr. injured his ankle during filming of Iron Man 3 movie, and because of that, did not film the end of the movie. However, instead of postponing shooting until he heals, it was decided to use a CGI version of Downey Jr, by super-imposing his face using facial-capture filming onto a body double.
  8. A Female Villain – Director Shane Black wanted that the villain in the Iron Man 3 movie will be played by actress Rebecca Hall, but was turned down. The reason? The people at Marvel didn’t believe that her role as a villain will sell toys. Still, merchandise equals money, and it’s important for some people high above (wink).
  9. Here’s Some More Money – The original budget of Iron Man 3 movie was set to $140 million. However, after the huge success of The Avengers 2012 movie, both Marvel Studios and Disney updated the budget of Iron Man 3 and set it to $200 million, so director Shane Black will make the best possible movie according to his vision.
  10. The Child Returns – During Iron Man 3 movie, Tony Stark tells a young child wearing glasses that he loved him in the 1983 movie A Christmas Story. In that movie, Peter Billingsley is playing the role of the boy Ralphie. Why is that important? Because that same boy, but not a boy anymore, was an executive producer on the first Iron Man movie, and he even had a small part in that movie as well.
