Tomb of the Unknown Hulk 
- Stan Lee: [Narrates] Hi, this is Stan Lee. When we think of the sun we think of beaches and fun outdoors. But sometimes there are giant storms on the sun. Storms that hurl waves of radiation towards the helpless Earth. Right now this radiation is encircling America's most powerful army base where a dangerous experiment is now in progress.
- Rio: [Tasting soup] Oh, no! This is much too bland! A little curry, some chili rojo.

- Hulk: Nothing can stop Hulk!
- [Bruce is faking being shot with a paralysis beam to explain his Hulk caused disappearance]
- Betty Ross: [examining a statue straight Bruce] He's paralyzed, just like the rest of the men were.
- Rick Jones: He sure is. It ought to be wearing off pretty soon though.

- Rick Jones: Relax. I told you, it was an accident.
- Bruce Banner: Do you understand now why I worry about you? And Betty? And everybody close to me?
