Everybody wants a happy ending. Right? But it doesn't always roll that way.
I went for the head.
As far as I'm concerned, that's America's ass.
Think about it. If you travel to the past, that past becomes your future. And your former present becomes the past, which can't now be changed by your new future!

Avengers: Endgame is a 2019 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is a sequel to Infinity War, and the 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In the film, the surviving members of the Avengers and their allies work to reverse the damage caused by Thanos in Infinity War.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. Written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

Tony Stark/Iron Man


Tony Stark: Is this thing on? Hey, Ms. Potts. Pep. If you find this recording, don't post it on social media. It's gonna be a real tearjerker. I don't know if you're ever gonna see these. I don't even know if you're still... Oh, God, I hope so. Today's day 21? No, uh, 22. You know, if it wasn't for the existential terror of steering into the literal void of space, I'd say I'm feeling a little better today. The infection's run its course thanks to the blue meanie back there. Oh, you would love her. Very practical. Only a tiny bit sadistic. So, the fuel cells were cracked during battle and we figured out a way to reverse the ion charge, bought ourselves about 48 hours of flight time. Uh, but it's now dead in the water. 1,000 light years from the nearest 7-11. Oxygen will run out tomorrow morning... and that will be it. I know I said no more surprises, but I gotta say, I was really hoping to pull off one last one. But it looks like... well, you know what it looks like. Don't feel bad about this. I'm mean, actually, if you grieve for a couple weeks... and then move on with enormous guilt. [pauses] I should probably lie down for a minute, rest my eyes. Please know, when I drift off and be like everything lately, I'm fine. I'm totally fine. I dream about you. Because it's always you.

Tony Stark: [prerecorded post-mortem message] Everybody wants a happy ending. Right? But it doesn't always roll that way. Maybe this time. I'm hoping if you play this back, it's in celebration. I hope families are reunited, I hope we get it back and something like a normal version of the planet has been restored, if there ever was such a thing. God, what a world. Universe, now. If you told me ten years ago that we weren't alone, let alone, you know, to this extent, I mean, I wouldn't have been surprised, but come on. The epic forces of dark and light that have come in to play. And for better or worse, that's the reality Morgan's gonna have to find a way to grow up in. So I thought I better record a little greeting, in the case of an untimely death, on my part. I mean, not that death at any time isn't untimely. This time travel thing we're gonna try and pull off tomorrow, it's got me scratching my head about the survivability of it all. Then again that's the hero gig. Part of the journey is the end. What am I even tripping for? Everything's gonna workout exactly the way it's supposed to. [To Morgan] I love you 3000.



Thanos: In all my years of conquest, violence, slaughter, it was never personal. But I'll tell you now, what I'm about to do to your stubborn, annoying little planet... I'm gonna enjoy it. Very, very much.

Other characters

Captain America: Avengers… assemble.


[The team attacks Thanos at his home. As Steve and Natasha enter, Rocket turns the Infinity Gauntlet over to find the Infinity Stones missing]
Rocket: Oh, no...
Captain America: [to Thanos] Where are they?
Captain Marvel: [Tightens her vise grip on Thanos' throat] Answer the question.
Thanos: The universe required correction. After that, the stones served no purpose beyond temptation.
Bruce: You murdered TRILLIONS! [shoves Thanos to the ground]
Thanos: You should be grateful. [gets punched by Bruce]
Black Widow: Where are the stones?
Thanos: Gone. Reduced to atoms.
Bruce: You used them two days ago!
Thanos: I used the stones to destroy the stones. It nearly killed me, but the work is done. It always will be. I am... inevitable.
War Machine: We have to tear this place apart. He has to be lying!
Nebula: My father is many things. A liar is not one of them.
Thanos: Ahhh. Thank you, daughter. Perhaps I treated you too harshly– [Gets decapitated by Thor]
Rocket: What? what did you do?
Thor: I went for the head.

[Inside the Avengers Compound, the heroes are conducting a time travel experiment]
Banner: Okay, here we go. Time travel test number one. Scott, fire up the uhhhh…the van thing. [Scott opens the portal]
Steve: Breakers are set, emergency generators are on standby.
Banner: Good. 'Cause if we blow the grid, I don't wanna lose tiny here in the 1950's.
Scott: Excuse me?
Natasha: He's kidding. You can't say things like that.
Banner: It was a bad joke.
Natasha: You were kidding, right?
Banner: [whispering to Romanoff] I have no idea. We're talking about time travel here. Either it's all a joke, or none of it is. [loudly and gives Scott a thumbs up] We're good! Get your helmet on, Scott. I'm gonna send you back a week, let you walk around for an hour, then bring you back in 10 seconds. Makes sense?
Scott: Perfectly not confusing.
Steve: Good luck, Scott. You got this.
Scott: You're right. I do, Captain America!
Banner: On the count of 3. 3…2…1!
[Bruce presses a button, and Scott disappears into the Quantum Tunnel. In 5 seconds, Bruce presses a button, and someone in the Ant-Man suit comes back. A teenager appears out of it]
Young Scott: Uh, guys? T-This doesn't feel right.
Steve: What is this?
Banner: What's going on?
Natasha: Who is that?
[Banner pushes another couple of buttons, trying to fix the problem]
Banner: Hold on.
Natasha: Is that Scott?
Young Scott: [irritated] Yes, it's Scott!
[Scott gets sucked in back into the quantum tunnel, and it appears to be an old man in the Ant-Man suit]
Elderly Scott: OWW! My back…!
Steve: What is this?
Banner: Can I get a little space here.
Steve: Yeah, yeah. Can you bring him back?
Banner: I'm working on it! [taps the side of the button pad, trying to pull back Scott]
[After a moment, another person appears in front of them. This time, it's a baby in the Ant-Man suit]
Steve: It's a baby.
Banner: It's Scott!
Rogers: As a baby!
Banner: He'll grow!
Rogers: [exasperated] Bring Scott back!
Banner: When I say kill the power, kill the power.
Natasha: [annoyed, she goes to kill the power] Oh, my God.
Banner: [configuring the time machine] And…kill it!
[Natasha kills the power as Banner sends baby Scott back into the Quantum Realm and retrieves Scott's present self, who is shaken from the Avengers' experiment]
Scott: Somebody peed my pants…
Romanoff: Oh, thank God.
Scott: But I don't know if it was baby-me or old-me. Or…just me-me.
Banner: Time travel! [Steve just shakes his head and walks away] What? I see this as an absolute win.

[Nebula is fitting a time travel suit onto Clint Barton]
Banner: Clint, now you're gonna feel a little discombobulated from the chronoshift, don't worry about that--
James Rhodes: Wait, wait, wait a second. Let me ask you something. If we can do this, you know…go back in time, why don't we just find baby Thanos, you know, and… [makes a gesture of strangling a baby with a rope, complete with "choking sound"]
Banner: [disgusted] First of all, that's horrible...
Rhodes: It's Thanos.
Banner: ...and secondly, time doesn't work that way. Changing the past doesn't change the future!
Scott: Look, we go back, we get the stones before Thanos gets them? Thanos doesn't have the stones. Problem solved!
Clint Barton: Bingo.
Nebula: That's not how it works.
Barton: Well, that's what I heard.
Banner: What, by who? Who told you that?
Rhodes: [counting with his fingers] Star Trek, Terminator, Timecop, Time After Time
Scott: …Quantum Leap
Rhodes: Wrinkle in Time, Somewhere in Time
Scott: Hot Tub Time Machine
Rhodes: Hot Tub Time Machine, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure - basically, any movie that deals with time travel.
Scott: Die Hard? No, that's not one.
Rhodes: This is known.
Banner: I don't know why everyone believes that, but that isn't true. Think about it. If you travel to the past, that past becomes your future. And your former present becomes the past, which can't now be changed by your new future!
Nebula: Exactly.
Scott: [confused] So Back to the Future is a bunch of bullshit?

Steve: Okay, so the "how" works. Now we gotta figure out the "when" and the "where." Almost all of us has had an encounter with at least one of the six Infinity Stones.
Stark: Well, I'd substitute the word "encounter" for "damn well near been killed by" one of the six Infinity Stones.
Scott: I haven't, I don't even know what the hell you're all talking about.
Banner: Regardless, we only have enough Pym Particles for one round trip each, and these Stones have been in a lot of different places throughout history.
Stark: Our history. So, not a lot of convenient spots to just drop in.
Clint: Which means we have to pick our targets.
Stark: Correct.
Steve: Let's start with the Aether. Thor, what do you know?
Natasha: [Thor is sitting on a chair with his sunglasses on] Is he asleep?
Rhodey: No. I'm pretty sure he's dead.
Thor: [wakes up] Where to start? Umm…the Aether, first, is not a stone, someone called it a stone before. It's more of a…an angry sludge thing, so…someone's gonna need to amend that. Here's an interesting story though, many years ago…my grandfather had to hide the stones from the Dark Elves, wooooh, scary beings. So Jane[an image of Jane Foster pops up on the screen] Oh, there she is. That's Jane. She's– an old flame of mine. She– she stuck her hand inside a rock this one time– and then the Aether stuck itself inside her. And she became very, very sick. So I had to take her to Asgard, which is where I'm from. And we had to try and fix her. We were dating at the time, you see. I got to introduce her to my mother…who's dead… [seeming on the verge of tears] …and, oh, you know, Jane and I aren't even dating anymore, these things happen though you know, nothing last forever… [Tony starts to push Thor back to his chair] I'm not done yet, the only thing permanent in life is impermanence.
Stark: Awesome. Eggs? Breakfast?
Thor: No. I'd like a Bloody Mary.
Rocket: Quill said he stole the Power Stone from Morag.
Scott: Is that a person?
Rocket: Morag's a planet, Quill was a person.
Scott: A planet? Like in outer space?
Rocket: [Mockingly] Oh, look: it's like a little puppy, all happy and everything. [starts petting Scott] Do you want to go to space? You want to go to space, puppy? I'll take you to space!
Nebula: Thanos found the Soul Stone on Vormir.
Natasha: [in a business-like tone] What is Vormir?
Nebula: A dominion of death, at the very center of Celestial existence. It's where... Thanos murdered my sister.
Scott: Not it.
Natasha: [lying on a paper-filled table] That Time Stone guy…
Banner: [lying down on the floor] Doctor Strange.
Natasha: Yeah, what kind of doctor was he?
Stark: Neuro stuff meets rabbit from a hat. Nice place in the Village, though.
Banner: Yeah. Sullivan Street. [Corrects himself] Hmm– Bleecker.
Natasha: Wait, he lived in New York?
Stark: [Sarcastically] No, he lived in Toronto.
Natasha: Guys, if you pick the right year, there are three Stones in New York.
Banner: [Sits up in surprise] Shut the front door!

Tony Stark: [about the 2012 version of Steve Rogers, to contemporary Rogers]Mr. Rogers, I almost forgot, that suit did nothing for your ass.
Steve Rogers: No one asked you to look, Tony.
Tony Stark: It's ridiculous.
Scott Lang: I think you look great, Cap. As far as I'm concerned, that's America's ass.

[Bruce Banner is trying to reason with the Ancient One to let him have the Time Stone]
The Ancient One: I'm sorry, I can't help you, Bruce. If I give up the Time Stone to help your Reality, I'm dooming my own.
Bruce Banner: With all due respect, I'm not sure the science really supports that.
The Ancient One: [conjures a long ray, denoting the flow of time with the Infinity Stones circling around it] The Infinity Stones create what you experience as the flow of time. Remove one stone and that flow splits. [pulls out one of the Stones, which causes a black stream indicating a point of divergence to appear] Now, this may benefit your reality, but my new one… not so much. In this new branched Reality, without our chief weapon against the forces of darkness, our world will be overrun. Millions will suffer. So tell me Doctor, can your science prevent all that?
Banner: No, but we can erase it. Because once we are done with the stones, we can return each one to its own timeline at the moment it was taken. So, chronologically, in that reality, they never left.
The Ancient One: But you are leaving out the most important part. In order to return the stones, you have to survive.
Banner: We will. I will. I promise.
The Ancient One: I can't risk this Reality on a promise. It is the duty of the Sorcerer Supreme to protect the Time Stone.
Banner: Then, why the hell did Strange give it away?
The Ancient One: [Surprised] What did you say?
Banner: Strange, he gave it away. He gave it to Thanos.
The Ancient One: Willingly?
Banner: Yes.
The Ancient One: Why?
Banner: I have no idea. Maybe he made a mistake.
The Ancient One: Or I did. [Reunites Banner's spirit with his body] Strange is meant to be the best of us.
Banner: So he must have done it for a reason.
The Ancient One: I fear you might be right. [Gives Bruce the Time Stone]
Banner: Thank you.
The Ancient One: I'm counting on you, Bruce. We all are.

[After the Snap is undone, Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor approach Thanos from 2014 after his attack on the New Avengers Facility, who is fully aware of his plan's success and his fate and the Avengers' attempts to undo his plan, and has arrived at Earth]
Iron Man: What's he been doing?
Thor: Absolutely nothing.
Captain America: Where are the stones?
Iron Man: Somewhere under all this. All I know is he doesn't have them.
Captain America: So we keep it that way.
Thor: You know it's a trap, right?
Iron Man: Yeah. And I don't much care.
Thor: Good. Just as long as we are all in agreement... [Summons Mjølnir and Stormbreaker] Let's kill him properly this time.
[The three walk over to confront Thanos face-to-face]
Thanos: You could not live with your own failure. Where did that bring you? Back to me. I thought by eliminating half of life, the other half would thrive. But you've shown me that's impossible. And as long as there are those that remember what was, there will always be those that are unable to accept what can be. They will resist.
Iron Man: Yep, we're all kinds of stubborn.
Thanos: I'm thankful. Because now, I know what I must do. I will shred this universe down to its last atom - and then, with the stones you've collected for me, create a new one. Teeming with life, that knows not what it has lost, but only what it has been given. [Thor starts up Stormbreaker and Mjolnir] A grateful universe.
Captain America: Born out of blood.
Thanos: They'll never know it. Because you won't be alive to tell them. [The three fight Thanos]

[Doctor Strange has magically transported all the previously disintegrated Avengers and their allies, hundreds in all, to the battlefield to face Thanos' hordes]
Doctor Strange: Is that everyone?
Wong: What, you wanted more?
[Giant-Man emerges with Professor Hulk, War Machine, and Rocket. The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Wakandans, Asgardians, Masters of the Mystic Arts, and Ravagers take up battle positions]
Captain America: AVENGERS-! [he summons Mjolnir] ...assemble.

[In the final fight for the Nano Gauntlet with the Infinity Stones, Captain Marvel blasts at Thanos. Thanos pulls the Power Stone out of the Gauntlet and uses it in his free hand to hit Captain Marvel away. Tony looks at Strange, who simply raises one finger, reminding him that the one win over Thanos he foresaw is now at risk. Tony nods and Thanos then puts the Power Stone back into the Gauntlet, channeling the powers of the Stones. Tony attacks Thanos, pulling on the Gauntlet before Thanos punches him away, seemingly holding the Stones again]
Thanos: I am… inevitable.
[Thanos snaps his fingers, but nothing happens except a metallic clink. He finds the Stones gone. Tony has the stones on his own Gauntlet. Thanos looks wide-eyed]
Tony Stark: And I... am... Iron Man. [Snaps his fingers]
[Rocket fires at a Leviathan. Just as it devours him, it crumbles into ash. The Black Order and Thanos' army start crumbling to ash. T'Challa and Quill look around in surprise. Steve looks on in exhaustion, knowing that they won. Thanos, in horror, looks around and sees his entire army disintegrate. He looks at Steve, who just stares at him. Thanos sits down, mourns, and watches the sun before slowly being erased from existence himself]

[Last lines: Steve fails to come back immediately after returning Mjolnir and the Infinity Stones in their original places in time. In 2023, Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson see an elderly Steve sitting on the bench near them.]
Sam Wilson: Cap?
Steve: Hi, Sam.
Sam: So did something go wrong, or did something go right?
Steve: Well, after I put the stones back, I thought, maybe I'll try some of that life Tony was telling me to get.
Sam: How did that work out for you?
Steve: It was beautiful.
Sam: I'm happy for you. Truly.
Steve: Thank you.
Sam: Only thing bumming me out is the fact I have to live in a world without Captain America.
Steve: Oh. That reminds me… [Brings out his shield.] Try it on. [Sam look over to Bucky, who nods, and Sam holds Steve's shield.] How does it feel?
Sam: Like it's someone else's.
Steve: It isn't.
Sam: Thank you. I'll do my best.
Steve: That's why it's yours. [Shakes Sam's hand]
Sam: [Seeing elderly Steve's wedding ring] You wanna tell me about her?
Steve: No. No, I don't think I will.
[In 1945, Steve has time traveled back to be with Peggy Carter. They are dancing to "It's Been a Long, Long Time", and end with a kiss.]
