Avengers Assemble! (taglines)

Tony Stark / Iron Man[edit]

  • A hero? Like you? You're a laboratory experiment, Rogers. Everything special about you came out of a bottle.
  • 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.
  • Phil? His first name is "Agent."
  • [to Steve Rogers, about Nick Fury] He's a spy. Captain, he's the spy. His secrets have secrets.
  • An intelligence agency that fears intelligence? Historically, not awesome.
  • [trying to attract a Leviathan by popping flares from his costume] Okay, we got his attention. What was Step Two?
  • We have a Hulk.
  • [standing at Fury's command post on the Helicarrier] Raise the mizzenmast, jib the top-sails. [points to a SHIELD operator, who is briefly seen playing Galaga] That man is playing Galaga! He thought we wouldn't notice... but we did.

Steve Rogers / Captain America[edit]

  • Always a way out, You know, you may not be a threat, but you better stop pretending to be a hero.
  • When I went under, the world was at war. I wake up, they say we won. They didn't say what we lost.
  • You know, the last time I was in Germany and saw a man standing above everybody else, we ended up disagreeing.

Dr. Bruce Banner / Hulk[edit]

  • STOP LYING TO ME! [Natasha quickly draws out her gun] ... I'm sorry, that was mean. I just wanted to see what you'd do.
  • [Incorrectly assuming the Helicarrier is a submarine] Really? They want me in a submerged, pressurized metal container? [Seeing that it actually flies] Oh no, this is much worse.
  • I mean, what are we, a team? No, no, no. We're a chemical mixture that makes chaos. We're ... we're a time-bomb.
  • Sorry kids. You don't get to see my little party trick after all.
  • Puny god!!
  • That's my secret, Cap: I'm always angry.


  • You people are so petty… and tiny.
  • You speak of control, yet you court chaos.
  • We are not your enemies, Banner! Try to think!

Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow[edit]

  • (Conversing while tied to a chair) I'm in the middle of an interrogation! This moron is giving me everything!
  • Regimes fall every day. I tend not to weep over that, I'm Russian. Or I used to be.
  • Боже мой!
    • "Oh my God!" after Coulson orders her to recruit "the big guy"
  • This is LOKI. This is monsters and magic and nothing we were ever trained for.
  • I don’t see how that’s a party.

Clint Barton / Hawkeye[edit]

  • I see better from a distance.
  • I need a distraction. And an eyeball.
  • Well, if I put an arrow in Loki's eye socket, I'd sleep better I suppose.
  • You're a spy, not a soldier. Now you want to wade into a war? Why? What did Loki do to you?


  • I said …KNEEL!!!
  • I am Loki of Asgard. And I am burdened with glorious purpose.
  • In the end, you will all kneel before me.
  • Are you ever not going to fall for that? [after using his duplication ability to trick Thor into trapping himself]

Phil Coulson[edit]

  • [to Natasha] Oh, I've got Stark. You get the big guy.
  • [Cap thinks his new uniform might look too old-fashioned] With everything that's happening … the things that are about to come to light … people might just need a little old-fashioned.
  • [last words] It's okay, boss. This was never going to work if they didn't have something to …

Nick Fury[edit]

  • Until such time as the world ends, we will act as though it intends to spin on.
  • Ant… boot.
  • There was an idea – Stark knows this – called the Avengers Initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, to see if they could become something more. To fight the battles that we never could. Phil Coulson died still believing in that idea…in heroes.
  • I recognize that the Council has made a decision. But given that it is a stupid decision, I've elected to ignore it.

The Other[edit]

  • [opening narration] The Tesseract has awakened. It is on a little world … a human world. They would wield its power, but our ally knows its workings as they never will. He is ready to lead. And our force, our Chitauri, will follow. The world will be his... the universe, yours. And the humans... what can they do but burn?
  • You will have your war, Asgardian. If you fail... if the Tesseract is kept from us... there will be no realm, no barren moon, no crevice where he cannot find you. You think you know pain? He will make you long for something sweet as pain.

Galaga Guy[edit]

  • The line looks mostly intact, but it is impossible to get out there and make repairs while we're in the air.


Nick Fury: We have no quarrel with your people.
Loki: An ant has no quarrel with a boot.
Nick Fury: You planning to step on us?
Loki: I come with glad tidings, of a world made free.
Nick Fury: Free from what?
Loki: Freedom. Freedom is life's great lie. Once you accept that, in your heart... [puts Eric Selvig under his control] you will know peace.
Nick Fury: Yeah, you say "peace." I kinda think you mean the other thing.

Gideon Malick: This is out of line, Director. You're dealing with forces you can't control.
Nick Fury: You ever been in a war, Councilman? In a firefight? Did you feel an overabundance of control?
Gideon Malick: You're saying that this Asgard is declaring war on our planet?
Nick Fury: Not Asgard. Loki.
World Security Council: He can't be working alone. What about the other one? His brother?
Nick Fury: Our intelligence says Thor is not a hostile. But he's worlds away. We can't depend on him to help, either. It's up to us.
Gideon Malick: Which is why you should be focusing on Phase Two. It was designed for exactly this –
Nick Fury: Phase Two isn't ready. Our enemy is. We need a response team.
Gideon Malick: The Avengers Initiative was shut down.
Nick Fury: This isn't about the Avengers.
Gideon Malick: We've seen the list. You run the world's greatest covert security network and you're gonna leave the fate of the human race to a handful of freaks?
Nick Fury: I'm not leaving anything to anyone. We need a response team. These people may be isolated, unbalanced even, but I believe with the right push, they can be exactly what we need.
World Security Council: You believe?
Gideon Malick: War isn't won by sentiment, Director.
Nick Fury: No. It's won by soldiers.

Pepper Potts: Is this about the Avengers? [Coulson looks at her]... which I know nothing about?
Tony Stark: The Avengers Initiative was scrapped, I thought. And I didn't even qualify.
Pepper: I didn't know that either.
Tony: Apparently I'm volatile, self-obsessed, and don't play well with others.
Pepper: That, I did know.

Loki: [teleporting to the front of a fleeing crowd] Kneel before me. [the crowd flees the other way; Loki teleports in that direction] I said …KNEEL!!! [slams the staff on the ground, releasing a thunderous shockwave that scares the crowd into submission] Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It is the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power. For identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel.
Old German Man: [stands up] Not to men like you.
Loki: [smirking] There are no men like me.
Old German Man: There are always men like you.
Loki: Look to your elder, people. Let him be an example!
[Loki fires a blast from his scepter at the old man, only to have Captain America leap in and deflect it back with his shield, knocking Loki down]
Captain America: You know, the last time I was in Germany and saw a man standing above everybody else, we ended up disagreeing.

[Steve Rogers, Tony Stark and Natasha Romanoff are transporting Loki in the Quinjet when they run into thunder clouds.]
Steve Rogers: What's the matter? Scared of a little lightning?
Loki: I'm not overly fond of what follows.
[Thor arrives from Asgard, wordlessly opens the door and flies away with Loki in a choke hold.]
Tony Stark: And now there's that guy.
Natasha: Another Asgardian?
Steve Rogers: That guy's a friendly?
Tony Stark: Doesn't matter. If he frees Loki or kills him, the Tesseract's lost.
Steve Rogers: Stark, we need a plan of attack!
Tony Stark: I have a plan: Attack!

[Stark confronts Thor]
Thor: Do not touch me again.
Tony Stark: Then don't take my stuff.
Thor: You have no idea what you're dealing with.
Tony Stark: Uh ... Shakespeare in the Park? Doth Mother know you wear-eth her drapes?
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... [his mask comes down] ...stay out of the way. [under his breath] Tourist.

[Rogers gets ready to go after Stark, Thor and Loki]
Natasha Romanoff: I'd sit this one out, Cap!
Steve Rogers: I don't see how I can!
Natasha Romanoff: These guys come from legend. They're basically Gods.
Steve Rogers: There's only one God, ma'am. And I'm pretty sure he doesn't dress like that! [straps on a parachute and jumps out of the Quinjet]

Loki: How desperate are you? That you call on such lost creatures to defend you?
Nick Fury: How desperate am I? You threaten my world with war, you steal a force you can't hope to control, you talk about peace, and you kill 'cause it's fun. You have made me very desperate. You might not be glad that you did.
Loki: Ooh, it burns you to come so close. To have the Tesseract, to have power, unlimited power, and for what? A warm light for all mankind to share. And then to be reminded what "real power" is.
Nick Fury: Well, let me know if "real power" wants a magazine or something.

[Discussing how to find the Tesseract]
Steve Rogers: I'd start with that stick of [Loki's]. It may be magical, but it works a lot like a HYDRA weapon.
Nick Fury: I don't know about that, but it is powered by the Cube. And I'd like to know how Loki used it to turn two of the sharpest men I know into his personal flying monkeys.
Thor: [confused] Monkeys? I don't understand –
Steve Rogers: I do. [Stark rolls his eyes while Steve looks proud of himself] I understood that reference.

Natasha Romanoff: I've got red in my ledger, I'd like to wipe it out.
Loki: Can you? Can you wipe out that much red? Drakov's daughter, São Paulo, the hospital fire? Barton told me everything. Your ledger is dripping, it's gushing red; and you think saving a man no more virtuous than yourself will change anything?! This is the basest sentimentality. This is a child at prayer–pathetic. You lie and kill in the service of liars and killers. You pretend to be separate, to have your own code, something that makes up for the horrors…but they are a part of you, and they will never go away. [Loki slams his fist into the cage glass, snarling with fury] I won't touch Barton, not until I make him kill you. Slowly. Intimately. In every way he knows you fear. And then he'll wake just long enough to see his good work, and when he screams, I'll split his skull. This is my bargain, you mewling quim.
Natasha: [tearfully] You're a monster.
Loki: [chuckles scornfully] Oh, no. You've already brought the monster with you.
Natasha: [turns around, showing no signs of tears] So…Banner. So that's your play.
Loki: [realizing he's been tricked] What?
Natasha: [into her comm as she walks away] Loki's plan is to unleash the Hulk. Keep Banner in his lab, I'll meet you there. Send Thor as well. [to Loki] Thank you…for your cooperation.

Steve Rogers: I think Loki's trying to wind us up. This is a man who means to start a war, and if we don't stay focused, he'll succeed. We have orders, we should follow them.
Tony Stark: Following's not really my style.
Steve: And you're all about style, aren't you?
Tony: Of the people in this room, which one is A) wearing a spangly outfit, and B) not of use?

Thor: You speak of control, yet you court chaos.
Bruce Banner: That's his MO, isn't it? I mean, what are we, a team? No, no, no. We're a chemical mixture that makes chaos. We're ... we're a time-bomb.
Nick Fury: You need to step away.
Tony Stark: Why shouldn't the guy let off a little steam?
Steve: You know dang well why! Back off!
Tony: I'm starting to want you to make me.
Steve: Yeah. Big man in a suit of armor. Take that off, what are you?
Tony: Genius. Billionaire. Playboy. Philanthropist. [Natasha shrugs condescendingly, but concedes Stark's point]
Steve: I know guys with none of that worth ten of you. I've seen the footage. The only thing you really fight for is yourself. You're not the guy to make the sacrifice play, to lay down on a wire and let the other guy crawl over you.
Tony: I think I would just cut the wire.
Steve: Always a way out. You know, you may not be a threat, but you better stop pretending to be a hero.
Tony: A hero? Like you? You're a laboratory experiment, Rogers. Everything special about you came out of a bottle.
Steve: [enraged] Put on your Supersuit. Let's go a few rounds.

Phil Coulson: [Dying, holding a very large gun] You're going to lose.
Loki: Am I?
Coulson: It's in your nature.
Loki: Your heroes are scattered, your floating fortress falls from the sky. Where is my disadvantage?
Coulson: You lack conviction.
Loki: I don't think I –
[Coulson fires the weapon, blasting Loki through a wall]
Coulson: So that's what it does.

World Security Council: Director Fury, the council has made a decision.
Nick Fury: I recognize the council has made a decision, but given that it's a stupid-ass decision, I've elected to ignore it.

Loki: Please tell me you're going to appeal to my humanity.
Tony Stark: Actually, I'm planning to threaten you.
Loki: You should have left your armor on for that.
Tony: Yeah, it's seen a bit of mileage and you got the, uh, Glow Stick of Destiny. Would you like a drink?
Loki: Stalling me won't change anything.
Tony: No, no, no; threatening. No drink? You sure? I'm having one. [pours a glass of whisky]
Loki: The Chitauri are coming. Nothing will change that. What have I to fear?
Tony: The Avengers. [Loki looks confused] It's what we call ourselves, sorta like a team. "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" type thing.
Loki: Yes, I've met them.
Tony: Yeah. Takes us a while to get any traction. But let's do a head count here. Your brother, the demigod; a super soldier, a living legend who kind of lives up to the legend; a man with breathtaking anger management issues and two master assassins. And you, big fella, you've managed to p*** off every single one of them.
Loki: That was the plan.
Tony: Not a great plan. When they come…and they will…they'll come for you.
Loki: I have an army.
Tony: We have a Hulk.
Loki: I thought the beast had wandered off.
Tony: You're missing the point. There is 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 sure we'll avenge it.
Loki: How will your friends have time for me. . . . when they're so busy fighting you?
[attempts to use his sceptre on Tony, but his arc reactor protects him]
Loki: [confused] This usually works.
Tony: Well, performance issues, it's not uncommon, one out of five... [Loki throws him across the room] JARVIS, anytime now!
Loki: [grabs Tony again] You will all fall before me!
Tony: Deploy! Deploy!
[Loki throws Tony out of the window, but his Mark VII armor reaches him and attaches itself to him before he hits the ground. He flies back to the penthouse.]
Tony: And there's one other person you p***ed off. His name was Phil. [blasts Loki]

[as the first wave of Chitauri streams through the portal]
Steve Rogers: Iron Man, are you seeing this?
Tony Stark: Seeing…still workin' on believing.

[Barton and Romanoff are fighting the first wave of Chitauri in New York]
Natasha Romanoff: Just like Budapest all over again!
Clint Barton: You and I remember Budapest very differently!

Captain America: What's the story upstairs?
Thor: The powers surrounding the cube is impenetrable.
Tony Stark: Thor's right, we gotta deal with these guys.
Natasha Romanoff: How do we do this?
Captain America: As a team.
Thor: I have unfinished business with Loki.
Clint Barton: Yeah? Get in line.

Bruce Banner: [arriving in New York on a motorcycle] So. This all seems…horrible.
Black Widow: I've seen worse.
Banner: Sorry.
Black Widow: No, we could use a little worse.
Captain America: Stark? We got him.
Iron Man: Banner?
Cap: Just like you said.
Iron Man: Then tell him to suit up. I'm bringing the party to you.
[Stark flies into view, chased by a Leviathan]
Natasha Romanoff: I – I don't see how that's a party.
[Stark drops low to the ground, forcing the Leviathan to crash onto the streets; Banner begins walking towards it]
Cap: Dr. Banner! Now might be a really good time for you to get angry.
Bruce Banner: That's my secret, Captain. I'm always angry. [Morphs into the Hulk and punches the Leviathan]

Iron Man: Call it, Cap.
Captain America: All right, listen up! Until we can close that portal, our priority is containment. Barton, I want you on that roof, eyes on everything. Call out patterns and strays. Stark, you got the perimeter. Anything gets more than three blocks out, you turn it back or you turn it to ash.
Hawkeye [to Stark] Can you give me a lift?
Iron Man: Right. Better clench up, Legolas. [flies Barton to the indicated rooftop]
Cap: Thor, you gotta try and bottleneck that portal. Slow 'em down. You got the lightning, light the bastards up. [Thor flies off on Mjölnir. Rogers continues speaking to Romanoff.] You and me, we stay here on the ground, keep the fighting here. And Hulk?
[Hulk turns to Cap]
Cap: [points to Chitauri] Smash.
[Hulk grins and leaps into battle]

Loki: ENOUGH! You are, all of you, beneath me! I am a GOD, you dull creature, and I will not be bullied by–
[Hulk grabs Loki and slams him into the floor five times like a rag doll, then leaves him lying face-up in the resulting crater]
Hulk: PUNY GOD. [Stomps off, leaving Loki groaning in pain]

[Iron Man gets an unorthodox idea for taking down a Leviathan]
Iron Man: JARVIS, you ever hear the tale of Jonah?
JARVIS: I wouldn't consider him a role model, sir.

Loki: [groaning in defeat as he sees the assembled Avengers] If it's all the same to you...I'll have that drink now.

Gideon Malick: Where are the Avengers?
Nick Fury: I'm not currently tracking their whereabouts. I'd say they've earned a leave of absence.
World Security Council: And the Tesseract?
Nick Fury: The Tessaract is where it belongs...out of our reach.
Gideon Malick: That's not your call, Director.
Nick Fury: I didn't make it. I just didn't argue with the god that did.
Gideon Malick: So you've let him take it, and the war criminal Loki, who should be answering for his crimes?
Nick Fury: Oh, I think he will be.
World Security Council: I don't think you understand what you've started, letting the Avengers loose on this world. They're dangerous.
Nick Fury: They sure are. And the world knows it. Every world knows it.
Gideon Malick: Was that the point of all this? A statement?
Nick Fury: A promise.

[last lines; the Avengers have parted ways … for now]
Maria Hill: Sir, how does it work now? They've gone their separate ways, some … pretty extremely far. We get into a situation like this again, what happens then?
Nick Fury: They'll come back.
Hill: You really sure about that?
Fury: I am.
Hill: Why?
Fury: Because we'll need them to.

[mid-credits scene: The Other briefs his master on what happened with Loki and the Avengers]
The Other: Humans. They are not the cowering wretches we were promised. They stand. They are unruly and therefore cannot be ruled. [his master rises before the Other kneels] To challenge them … is to court death.
[The Other's master turns, and smiles evilly, revealing himself as Thanos]


  • Avengers Assemble!
  • Some assembly required.
  • Every team needs a Captain.
  • Throw down the hammer.

About The Avengers (2012 film)[edit]

  • The Avengers, which last week enjoyed the biggest North American opening in history, recasts 9/11 in the Bush years' dominant movie mode, namely the comic book superhero spectacular – albeit with a heavy dose of irony and added stereoscopic depth. But more fundamentally, The Avengers demonstrates how completely 9/11 has been superseded by another catastrophe, namely the financial meltdown of September 2008. To the extent that the movie has any sort of social content (or any content), it offers a flattering view of America's best as a group of eccentric individualists bamboozled into saving the world (economy) by the unflappable Samuel L Jackson's black dude of mystery. But even this Obama-iste reading is a bit of a stretch.
    The medium is the message. Hollywood felt threatened by 9/11 in 2001 but impervious to financial disaster in 2008. Three days after Lehman Brothers went bust, DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg assured investors that movies were "recession-proof". Of course, the industry did not allow for the simultaneous erosion of the DVD market and the public's discretionary income. The Avengers has less to do with the terror of falling buildings than falling grosses. The palliative for that goes by the name 3D. Bombs away: The Avengers is 9/11 as you've never seen it!
  • So the Chitauri were Al-Qaeda? O.K., good to know.
    A suspicion I had during Iron Man 3 was confirmed during Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The Marvel Cinematic Universe (by which we mean the movies starring Marvel comic-book characters that aren't distributed by Sony or 20th Century Fox) has decided to go back and reposition the big battle from Marvel’s The Avengers as its 9/11.
    On the one hand, this is a “no duh” observation—at the end of The Avengers, New York was blown to smithereens. But the tenor in which Joss Whedon shot and cut the lengthy third act sequence was so zippy and fun that it seemed as if Marvel was “taking back” the iconography of New York’s destruction, from both the terrorists and real life. The key image from Avengers is an adulatory 360-degree swoop of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes assembled in full flex before the sturdy columns of Grand Central. It is not “Falling Man.”
  • Much like the once wide-eyed Captain, I felt a little manipulated. Had I known those whiz-bang scenes from The Avengers were supposed to have more heft, I may have approached them differently as I was strapping that feed bag of popcorn to my face. I would have looked for more pathos in the Hulk flinging Loki around like a rag doll and muttering “puny God.” Perhaps it was less of a laugh line and more of a comment about fundamentalist religion’s unsuitability with liberty-loving New York. Which means I don't even want to think about that shawarma gag!
  • Q: How did you pitch “Avengers” to them in that e-mail?
A: I was like, I don’t know if I want to make an “Avengers” movie, so I’ll give you some ideas about where I think you might go with it. If it’s about the origin of a team that doesn’t make sense together, and they really don’t, then you have to use the “Dirty Dozen” model, which is an hour and 40 minutes of training and 20 minutes of Nazi-killing. So I laid out my ideas, the biggest one being, I think it’s a war movie. That’s the only way you can make these people feel like they might lose. You can’t just create six exact matches but slightly bigger, six Abominations – you can’t do that. What you can do is put them through so much that you get that feeling of, I don’t know what’s going to happen to them – they might not all come back from this. And I felt it even more strongly when I watched “Black Hawk Down.” I was like, O.K., that’s the movie I want to make. My first memo was 3 or 4 pages, and from that, they started to get excited about what I was saying and I started to get excited about what I was saying. I was like, Oh, this actually sounds fun. These people are broken. I can write about these people. They’re tortured and strange.
  • Q: On some level, you just want to see famous actors playing these characters you’ve so dearly for so long.
A: You want to see Captain America and Tony Stark not like each other, articulately. Writing them was where I started. They represent two polar opposites and I’m basically Tony and I wish I was Steve [Rogers, Cap’s alter ego]. I believe everything that Steve says, but at the end of the day, I’m more like Tony, without the brilliance and the billions.
  • Q: We saw a lot of art before, but is there one sequence that you’re really proud of or really excited to work on?
A: I’m not sure there’s any one particular sequence that I would say, “Well yeah, nailed that!” For me, honestly my favorite moments are the scenes where I have two of the characters, where I get to pair up two characters you might not expect to see together, and see them go at each other. Whether they are getting along or not, there’s always friction. And those scenes are probably not why everybody might rush to the theater, but they are the most fun when you really get to explore it with the actors and the space. That’s the stuff that I feel the proudest about. The action is not small and some of the gags we’ve come up with are enormous and delightful and I’m proud of them and excited by them, because I like to live in that world too. But when you are in those quieter moments, that’s when I am just in heaven.
  • Q: I would think Bruce Banner and The Hulk is the toughest part, because we have scene two other movies with two other actors playing him. Chris [Hemsworth], Chris [Evans], and Robert [Downey Jr.] have already been playing the characters. We know their characters. How have you been working on that and trying to develop your own Bruce Banner with Mark?
  • A: Well I had a very clear conception of what I wanted Bruce Banner to be and part of that was Mark Ruffalo. I was like, “I want somebody who just opens himself to an audience, who can’t help it, and who just takes you along everywhere he goes.” The other was Bill Bixby. That’s something that Mark and I both talked about. I felt that the performances in the other movies were very internal. And the movies themselves led to that, because they were all about Bruce Banner. The TV show was, “I have a problem and I help other people and I live with that problem.” So that’s sort of the way I wanted to approach it and the way… Mark and I spent a lot of time at the very beginning talking about rage, how it feels, how it manifests, what causes it, what it feels like afterwards—the nuts and bolts of the emotion itself. But in terms of the character, it was very clear that we wanted to have somebody who had gotten past where he was in those movies, so that when you meet him he is somebody who has internalized what went on in those movies to the extent that he’s someone you like and are interested in. If you’ve seen those movies, this would be a natural next step. If you haven’t, you’ll get the guy. You’ll get why he’s a good guy.
  • Q: How much of that polish was you prepping for The Avengers and specifically the Steve Rogers character? Were you building something in there that was going to lead into this?
A: I didn’t like sneak any particular Avengers easter eggs in. But I did spend a lot of time with the character, which for me was important, because Steve’s perspective in this world is very much, as much as anybody’s if not more, the audience’s. He is looking at this world with fresh eyes and he is not impressed. His feeling of disconnection is something that’s going to be laced throughout the film. It’s a film about lonely people, because I’m making it, and my pony only does one trick. He’s a classic man out of time in the very literal sense and so to have worked on his 40s incarnation, even a little bit, was a nice introduction to this and kept be grounded in his perspective.
