- 1. I feel like you're driving me
to a court-martial.
- 2. This is crazy. What did I do?
- 3. I feel like you're going to pull over
and snuff me.
- 4. What, you're not allowed to talk?
- 5. We can talk, sir.
- 6. - Oh, I see. So it's personal?
- No, you intimidate them.
- 7. Good God, you're a woman.
I honestly... I couldn't have called that.
- 8. I mean, I'd apologize,
but isn't that what we're going for here?
- 9. - I thought of you as a soldier first.
- I'm an airman.
- 10. You have, actually,
excellent bone structure, there.
- 11. I'm kind of having a hard time
not looking at you now.
- 12. Is that weird?
Come on, it's okay, laugh.
- 13. - Sir, I have a question to ask.
- Yes, please.
- 14. Is it true you went 12 for 12
with last year's Maxim cover models?
- 15. That is an excellent question.
Yes and no.
- 16. March and I had a scheduling conflict,
- 17. but fortunately,
the Christmas cover was twins.
- 18. Anything else? You're kidding me
with the hand up, right?
- 19. - Is it cool if I take a picture with you?
- Yes. It's very cool.
- 20. All right.
- 21. I don't want to see this
on your MySpace page.
- 22. Please, no gang signs.
- 23. No, throw it up. I'm kidding.
- 24. Yeah, peace. I love peace.
I'd be out of a job with peace.
- 25. Come on. Hurry up.
Just click it. Don't change any settings.
- 26. - What's going on?
- Contact left!
- 27. What have we got?
- 28. Jimmy, stay with Stark!
- 29. - Stay down!
- 30. Son of a bitch!
- 31. - Wait, wait, wait! Give me a gun!
- Stay here!
- 32. Whoa!
- 33. Tony Stark.
- 34. Visionary. Genius.
- 35. American patriot.
- 36. Even from an early age,
- 37. the son of legendary
weapons developer Howard Stark
- 38. quickly stole the spotlight
with his brilliant and unique mind.
- 39. At age four,
he built his first circuit board.
- 40. At age six, his first engine.
- 41. And at 17, he graduated
summa cum laude from MIT.
- 42. Then, the passing of a titan.
- 43. Howard Stark's lifelong friend
and ally, Obadiah Stane,
- 44. steps in to help fill the gap
left by the legendary founder,
- 45. until, at age 21, the prodigal son returns
- 46. and is anointed the new CEO
of Stark Industries.
- 47. With the keys to the kingdom,
- 48. Tony ushers in a new era
for his father's legacy,
- 49. creating smarter weapons,
advanced robotics, satellite targeting.
- 50. Today, Tony Stark has changed
the face of the weapons industry
- 51. by ensuring freedom
and protecting America
- 52. and her interests around the globe.
- 53. As liaison to Stark Industries,
- 54. I've had the unique privilege
of serving with a real patriot.
- 55. He is my friend
and he is my great mentor.
- 56. Ladies and gentlemen, it is my honor
- 57. to present this year's Apogee Award
to Mr. Tony Stark.
- 58. Tony?
- 59. - Thank you, Colonel.
- Thanks for the save.
- 60. This is beautiful. Thank you.
Thank you all very much.
- 61. This is wonderful.
- 62. Well, I'm not Tony Stark.
- 63. But if I were Tony,
I would tell you how honored I feel
- 64. and what a joy it is
to receive this very prestigious award.
- 65. Tony, you know...
- 66. The best thing about Tony
is also the worst thing.
- 67. He's always working.
- 68. Work it! Come on!
- 69. - We should just stay till the morning.
- You are unbelievable.
- 70. - Oh, no! Did they rope you into this?
- Nobody roped me into anything!
- 71. - I'm so sorry.
- But they told me that
- 72. if I presented you with an award,
you'd be deeply honored.
- 73. Of course I'd be deeply honored.
And it's you, that's great.
- 74. - So when do we do it?
- It's right here.
- 75. - Here you go.
- There it is. That was easy.
- 76. - I'm so sorry.
- Yeah, it's okay.
- 77. Wow! Would you look at that?
That's something else.
- 78. I don't have any of those
- 79. We're gonna let it ride!
- 80. Give me a hand, will you?
Give me a little something-something.
- 81. Okay, you, too.
- 82. - I don't blow on a man's dice.
- Come on, honey bear.
- 83. There it is.
Lieutenant Colonel Rhodes rolls! And...
- 84. Two craps. Line away.
- 85. - That's what happens.
- Worse things have happened.
- 86. I think we're gonna be fine.
Color me up, William.
- 87. - This is where I exit.
- All right.
- 88. Tomorrow, don't be late.
- 89. - Yeah, you can count on it.
- I'm serious!
- 90. I know, I know.
- 91. Render unto Caesar
that which is Caesar's. There you go.
- 92. Mr. Stark! Excuse me, Mr. Stark!
- 93. Christine Everhart,
Vanity Fair magazine.
- 94. Can I ask you a couple of questions?
- 95. - She's cute.
- She's all right?
- 96. - Hi.
- 97. - Yeah. Okay, go.
- It's okay?
- 98. You've been called
the da Vinci of our time.
- 99. - What do you say to that?
- Absolutely ridiculous. I don't paint.
- 100. And what do you say
to your other nickname?
- 101. "The Merchant of Death"?
- 102. That's not bad.
- 103. - Let me guess. Berkeley?
- Brown, actually.
- 104. Well, Ms. Brown,
- 105. it's an imperfect world,
but it's the only one we've got.
- 106. I guarantee you, the day weapons are
no longer needed to keep the peace,
- 107. I'll start making bricks and beams
for baby hospitals.
- 108. Rehearse that much?
- 109. Every night in front of the mirror
- 110. - I can see that.
- I'd like to show you first-hand.
- 111. All I want is a serious answer.
- 112. Okay, here's serious.
My old man had a philosophy,
- 113. "Peace means having a bigger stick
than the other guy."
- 114. That's a great line
coming from the guy selling the sticks.
- 115. My father helped defeat the Nazis.
He worked on the Manhattan Project.
- 116. A lot of people,
including your professors at Brown,
- 117. would call that being a hero.
- 118. And a lot of people
would also call that war profiteering.
- 119. Tell me, do you plan to report
on the millions we've saved
- 120. by advancing medical technology
- 121. or kept from starvation
with our intelli-crops?
- 122. All those breakthroughs,
military funding, honey.
- 123. You ever lose an hour of sleep
your whole life?
- 124. I'd be prepared to lose a few with you.
- 125. Good morning. It's 7:00 a.m.
- 126. The weather in Malibu
is 72 degrees with scattered clouds.
- 127. The surf conditions are fair
with waist-to-shoulder high lines.
- 128. High tide will be at 10:52 a.m.
- 129. Tony?
- 130. Hey, Tony?
- 131. You are not authorized
to access this area.
- 132. - Jesus.
- That's Jarvis. He runs the house.
- 133. I've got your clothes here.
They've been dry-cleaned and pressed,
- 134. and there's a car waiting for you outside
- 135. that will take you anywhere
you'd like to go.
- 136. - You must be the famous Pepper Potts.
- Indeed I am.
- 137. After all these years, Tony still has you
picking up the dry-cleaning.
- 138. I do anything and everything
that Mr. Stark requires,
- 139. including, occasionally,
taking out the trash.
- 140. Will that be all?
- 141. Give me an exploded view.
- 142. The compression in cylinder three
appears to be low.
- 143. Log that.
- 144. - I'm gonna try again, right now.
- Please don't turn down my music.
- 145. I'll keep you posted.
- 146. You are supposed to be
halfway around the world right now.
- 147. - How'd she take it?
- Like a champ.
- 148. Why are you trying to hustle me
out of here?
- 149. Your flight was scheduled to leave
an hour and a half ago.
- 150. That's funny, I thought with it being
my plane and all,
- 151. that it would just wait for me
to get there.
- 152. Tony, I need to speak to you
about a couple things
- 153. before I get you out of the door.
- 154. Doesn't it kind of defeat the whole
purpose of having your own plane
- 155. if it departs before you arrive?
- 156. Larry called. He's got another buyer
for the Jackson Pollock in the wings.
- 157. Do you want it? Yes or no.
- 158. Is it a good representation
of his spring period?
- 159. No. The Springs was actually
the neighborhood in East Hampton
- 160. where he lived and worked,
- 161. - not "spring" like the season.
- 162. I think it's a fair example.
I think it's incredibly overpriced.
- 163. I need it. Buy it. Store it.
- 164. Okay.
The MIT commencement speech...
- 165. Is in June. Please, don't harangue me
about stuff that's way, way, down...
- 166. They're haranguing me,
so I'm gonna say yes.
- 167. Deflect it and absorb it.
Don't transmit it back to me.
- 168. I need you to sign this
before you get on the plane.
- 169. What are you trying to get rid of me for?
What, you got plans?
- 170. - As a matter of fact, I do.
- I don't like it when you have plans.
- 171. I'm allowed to have plans
on my birthday.
- 172. - It's your birthday?
- 173. I knew that. Already?
- 174. Yeah. Isn't that strange?
It's the same day as last year.
- 175. - Get yourself something nice from me.
- I already did.
- 176. - And?
- It was very nice.
- 177. - Yeah.
- Very tasteful. Thank you, Mr. Stark.
- 178. You're welcome, Miss Potts.
- 179. Okay.
- 180. You're good.
I thought I lost you back there.
- 181. You did, sir.
I had to cut across Mulholland.
- 182. I got you. I got you.
- 183. What's wrong with you?
- 184. - What?
- Three hours.
- 185. I got caught doing a piece
for Vanity Fair.
- 186. For three hours. For three hours
you got me standing here.
- 187. Waiting on you now. Let's go. Come on.
- 188. Wheels up! Rock and roll!
- 189. - What you reading, platypus?
- 190. Come on, sour patch. Don't be mad.
- 191. I told you, I'm not mad.
I'm indifferent, okay?
- 192. - I said I was sorry.
- Good morning, Mr. Stark.
- 193. You don't need to apologize to me.
I'm your man.
- 194. Hi. I told him I was sorry, but he...
- 195. - I'm just indifferent right now.
- Hot towel?
- 196. You don't respect yourself,
- 197. - so I know you don't respect me.
- I respect you.
- 198. I'm just your babysitter.
- 199. So, when you need
your diaper changed... Thank you.
- 200. Let me know
and I'll get you a bottle, okay?
- 201. Hey! Heat up the sake, will you?
- 202. - Thanks for reminding me.
- No, I'm not talking...
- 203. We're not drinking.
We're working right now.
- 204. - You can't have sashimi without sake.
- You are constitutionally
- 205. incapable of being responsible.
- 206. It would be irresponsible not to drink.
I'm just talking about a nightcap.
- 207. Hot sake?
- 208. - Yes, two, please.
- No. I'm not drinking. I don't want any.
- 209. That's what I'm talking about.
- 210. When I get up in the morning
and I'm putting on my uniform,
- 211. you know what I recognize?
- 212. I see in that mirror that every person
that's got this uniform on got my back!
- 213. Hey, you know what?
I'm not like you. I'm not cut out...
- 214. No, no. You don't have to be like me!
But you're more than what you are.
- 215. Can you excuse me if
I'm a bit distracted here?
- 216. No! You can't be distracted right now!
Listen to me!
- 217. General.
- 218. Welcome, Mr. Stark. We look forward
to your weapons presentation.
- 219. Thanks.
- 220. Is it better to be feared or respected?
- 221. I say, is it too much to ask for both?
- 222. With that in mind,
I humbly present the crown jewel
- 223. of Stark Industries' Freedom Line.
- 224. It's the first missile system
- 225. to incorporate our proprietary
- 226. They say the best weapon
is one you never have to fire.
- 227. I respectfully disagree.
- 228. I prefer the weapon
you only have to fire once.
- 229. That's how Dad did it.
That's how America does it.
- 230. And it's worked out pretty well so far.
- 231. Find an excuse
- 232. to let one of these off the chain,
and I personally guarantee you
- 233. the bad guys won't even want
to come out of their caves.
- 234. For your consideration, the Jericho.
- 235. I'll be throwing one of these in
- 236. with every purchase
of 500 million or more.
- 237. To peace!
- 238. - Tony.
- Obie, what are you doing up?
- 239. I couldn't sleep till I found out
how it went. How'd it go?
- 240. It went great. Looks like it's gonna be
an early Christmas.
- 241. Hey! Way to go, my boy!
I'll see you tomorrow, yeah?
- 242. Why aren't you wearing those pajamas
I got you?
- 243. Good night, Tony.
- 244. - Hey, Tony.
- I'm sorry, this is the "fun-vee."
- 245. The "hum-drum-vee" is back there.
- 246. - Nice job.
- See you back at base.
- 247. I wouldn't do that if I were you.
- 248. What the hell did you do to me?
- 249. What I did?
- 250. What I did is to save your life.
- 251. I removed all the shrapnel I could,
but there's a lot left,
- 252. and it's headed into your atrial septum.
- 253. Here, want to see?
- 254. I have a souvenir. Take a look.
- 255. I've seen many wounds like that
in my village.
- 256. We call them the walking dead
- 257. because it takes about a week
for the barbs to reach the vital organs.
- 258. - What is this?
- That is an electromagnet,
- 259. hooked up to a car battery,
- 260. and it's keeping the shrapnel
from entering your heart.
- 261. That's right. Smile.
- 262. We met once, you know,
at a technical conference in Bern.
- 263. - I don't remember.
- No, you wouldn't.
- 264. If I had been that drunk,
I wouldn't have been able to stand,
- 265. much less give a lecture
on integrated circuits.
- 266. Where are we?
- 267. Come on, stand up. Stand up!
- 268. Just do as I do.
- 269. Come on, put your hands up.
- 270. Those are my guns.
How did they get my guns?
- 271. Do you understand me? Do as I do.
- 272. He says, "Welcome, Tony Stark,
the most famous mass murderer
- 273. "in the history of America."
- 274. He is honored.
- 275. He wants you to build the missile.
- 276. The Jericho missile
that you demonstrated.
- 277. This one.
- 278. I refuse.
- 279. Tony!
- 280. He wants to know what you think.
- 281. I think you got a lot of my weapons.
- 282. He says they have everything you need
to build the Jericho missile.
- 283. He wants you to make
the list of materials.
- 284. He says for you
to start working immediately,
- 285. and when you're done,
he will set you free.
- 286. - No, he won't.
- No, he won't.
- 287. I'm sure they're looking for you, Stark.
- 288. But they will never find you
in these mountains.
- 289. Look, what you just saw,
- 290. that is your legacy, Stark.
- 291. Your life's work,
in the hands of those murderers.
- 292. Is that how you want to go out?
- 293. Is this the last act of defiance
of the great Tony Stark?
- 294. Or are you going to
do something about it?
- 295. Why should I do anything?
They're going to kill me, you, either way.
- 296. And if they don't,
I'll probably be dead in a week.
- 297. Well, then,
- 298. this is a very important week for you,
- 299. If this is going to be my work station,
I want it well-lit. I want these up.
- 300. I need welding gear.
I don't care if it's acetylene or propane.
- 301. I need a soldering station. I need
helmets. I'm gonna need goggles.
- 302. I would like a smelting cup.
I need two sets of precision tools.
- 303. - How many languages do you speak?
- A lot.
- 304. But apparently,
not enough for this place.
- 305. They speak Arabic, Urdu,
- 306. Dari, Pashto, Mongolian,
- 307. - Who are these people?
- They are your loyal customers, sir.
- 308. They call themselves the Ten Rings.
- 309. You know, we might be more productive
- 310. if you include me
in the planning process.
- 311. Okay, we don't need this.
- 312. What is that?
- 313. That's palladium, 0.15 grams.
- 314. We need at least 1.6, so why don't
you go break down the other 11?
- 315. Careful.
Careful, we only get one shot at this.
- 316. Relax. I have steady hands.
- 317. Why do you think you're still alive?
- 318. - What do I call you?
- My name is Yinsen.
- 319. Yinsen. Nice to meet you.
- 320. Nice to meet you, too.
- 321. That doesn't look like a Jericho missile.
- 322. That's because
it's a miniaturized arc reactor.
- 323. I got a big one
powering my factory at home.
- 324. It should keep the shrapnel
out of my heart.
- 325. But what could it generate?
- 326. If my math is right, and it always is,
three gigajoules per second.
- 327. That could run your heart
for 50 lifetimes.
- 328. Yeah. Or something big for 15 minutes.
- 329. - This is our ticket out of here.
- What is it?
- 330. Flatten them out and look.
- 331. Oh, wow.
- 332. Impressive.
- 333. Good.
- 334. Good roll. Good roll.
- 335. You still haven't told me
where you're from.
- 336. I'm from a small town called Gulmira.
- 337. - It's actually a nice place.
- Got a family?
- 338. Yes, and I will see them
when I leave here.
- 339. And you, Stark?
- 340. - No.
- 341. So you're a man who has everything
- 342. and nothing.
- 343. Relax.
- 344. The bow and arrow
- 345. once was the pinnacle
of weapons technology.
- 346. It allowed the great Genghis Khan
- 347. to rule from the Pacific to the Ukraine.
- 348. An empire twice the size
of Alexander the Great
- 349. and four times
the size of the Roman Empire.
- 350. But today,
- 351. whoever holds the latest Stark weapons
- 352. rules these lands.
- 353. And soon,
- 354. it will be my turn.
- 355. What does he want?
- 356. What do you want? A delivery date?
- 357. I need him.
- 358. Good assistant.
- 359. You have till tomorrow
to assemble my missile.
- 360. Okay? Can you move?
- 361. Okay, say it again.
- 362. 41 steps straight ahead. Then 16 steps,
- 363. that's from the door,
fork right, 33 steps, turn right.
- 364. Yinsen! Yinsen! Stark!
- 365. Say something.
Say something back to him.
- 366. - He's speaking Hungarian. I don't...
- Then speak Hungarian.
- 367. - Okay. I know.
- What do you know?
- 368. - How'd that work?
- Oh, my goodness.
- 369. - It worked all right.
- That's what I do.
- 370. - Let me finish this.
- Initialize the power sequence.
- 371. Okay.
- 372. - Now!
- Tell me. Tell me.
- 373. Function 11.
Tell me when you see a progress bar.
- 374. - It should be up right now.
- 375. Talk to me. Tell me when you see it.
- 376. - I have it.
- Press Control "I".
- 377. - "I." Got it.
- "I."Enter."I" and "Enter."
- 378. Come over here and button me up.
- 379. Okay. All right.
- 380. Every other hex bolt.
- 381. - They're coming!
- Nothing pretty, just get it done.
- 382. - Just get it done.
- They're coming.
- 383. Make sure the checkpoints are clear
before you follow me out, okay?
- 384. We need more time.
- 385. Hey,
- 386. - I'm gonna go buy you some time.
- Stick to the plan!
- 387. Stick to the plan!
- 388. Yinsen!
- 389. - Yinsen!
- Watch out!
- 390. Stark.
- 391. Come on. We got to go.
- 392. Move for me, come on. We got a plan.
We're gonna stick to it.
- 393. This was always the plan, Stark.
- 394. Come on, you're gonna go
see your family. Get up.
- 395. My family is dead.
- 396. I'm going to see them now, Stark.
- 397. It's okay.
- 398. I want this. I want this.
- 399. Thank you for saving me.
- 400. Don't waste it. Don't waste your life.
- 401. My turn.
- 402. Not bad.
- 403. Hey!
- 404. How was the "fun-vee"?
- 405. Next time, you ride with me, okay?
- 406. Watch it, coming up here.
- 407. Are you kidding me with this?
Get rid of them.
- 408. Your eyes are red.
A few tears for your long-lost boss?
- 409. - Tears of joy. I hate job hunting.
- Yeah, vacation's over.
- 410. Where to, sir?
- 411. - Take us to the hospital, please, Happy.
- 412. No? Tony, you have to
- 413. - go to the hospital.
- No is a complete answer.
- 414. - The doctor has to look at you.
- I don't have to do anything.
- 415. I've been in captivity for three months.
- 416. There are two things I want to do.
I want an American cheeseburger,
- 417. - and the other...
- That's enough of that.
- 418. is not what you think. I want you
to call for a press conference now.
- 419. - Call for a press conference?
- 420. - What on earth for?
- Hogan, drive. Cheeseburger first.
- 421. Look at this!
- 422. Tony.
- 423. - We were going to meet at the hospital.
- No, I'm fine.
- 424. Look at you!
- 425. - You had to have a burger, yeah?
- Well, come on.
- 426. - You get me one of those?
- There's only one left. I need it.
- 427. Hey, look who's here! Yeah!
- 428. - Miss Potts?
- 429. Can I speak to you for a moment?
- 430. I'm not part of the press conference,
but it's about to begin right now.
- 431. I'm not a reporter.
- 432. I'm agent Phil Coulson,
- 433. with the Strategic Homeland
- 434. and Logistics Division.
- 435. - That's quite a mouthful.
- I know. We're working on it.
- 436. You know, we've been approached
already by the DOD, the FBI, the CIA...
- 437. We're a separate division
with a more specific focus.
- 438. We need to debrief Mr. Stark
about the circumstances of his escape.
- 439. - I'll put something in the book, shall I?
- Thank you.
- 440. Hey, would it be all right
if everyone sat down?
- 441. Why don't you just sit down?
That way you can see me, and I can...
- 442. A little less formal and...
- 443. - What's up with the love-in?
- Don't look at me.
- 444. I don't know what he's up to.
- 445. - Good to see you.
- Good to see you.
- 446. I never got to say goodbye to Dad.
- 447. I never got to say goodbye to my father.
- 448. There's questions
that I would have asked him.
- 449. I would have asked him how he felt
about what this company did.
- 450. If he was conflicted,
if he ever had doubts.
- 451. Or maybe he was every inch the man
we all remember from the newsreels.
- 452. I saw young Americans killed
- 453. by the very weapons I created
to defend them and protect them.
- 454. And I saw
- 455. that I had become part of a system that
is comfortable with zero accountability.
- 456. - Mr. Stark!
- Hey, Ben.
- 457. What happened over there?
- 458. I had my eyes opened.
I came to realize that I have more
- 459. to offer this world
than just making things that blow up.
- 460. And that is why, effective immediately,
I am shutting down
- 461. the weapons manufacturing division
of Stark International
- 462. until such a time as I can decide
what the future of the company will be.
- 463. I think we're gonna be selling
a lot of newspapers.
- 464. What direction it should take,
one that I'm comfortable with
- 465. and is consistent with the highest good
for this country, as well.
- 466. What we should take away from this
is that Tony's back!
- 467. And he's healthier than ever.
- 468. We're going to have
a little internal discussion
- 469. and we'll get back to you
with the follow-up.
- 470. - Where is he?
- He's inside.
- 471. Well, that... That went well.
- 472. Did I just paint a target
on the back of my head?
- 473. Your head? What about my head?
- 474. What do you think the over-under on
the stock drop is gonna be tomorrow?
- 475. - Optimistically, 40 points.
- At minimum.
- 476. Yep.
- 477. Tony, we're a weapons manufacturer.
- 478. Obie, I just don't want a body count
to be our only legacy.
- 479. That's what we do. We're iron mongers.
We make weapons.
- 480. It's my name on the side of the building.
- 481. And what we do
keeps the world from falling into chaos.
- 482. Not based on what I saw.
- 483. We're not doing a good enough job.
- 484. We can do better.
We're gonna do something else.
- 485. Like what?
You want us to make baby bottles?
- 486. I think we should take another look
into arc reactor technology.
- 487. Come on.
The arc reactor, that's a publicity stunt!
- 488. Tony, come on. We built that thing
to shut the hippies up!
- 489. - It works.
- Yeah, as a science project.
- 490. The arc was never cost effective.
We knew that before we built it.
- 491. Arc reactor technology,
that's a dead end, right?
- 492. Maybe.
- 493. Am I right? We haven't had
a breakthrough in that in what?
- 494. - Thirty years.
- That's what they say.
- 495. Could you have a lousier poker face?
Just tell me, who told you?
- 496. - Never mind who told me. Show me.
- It's Rhodey or Pepper.
- 497. - I want to see it.
- Okay, Rhodey.
- 498. - Okay.
- 499. It works.
- 500. Listen to me, Tony. We're a team.
Do you understand?
- 501. There's nothing we can't do
if we stick together,
- 502. like your father and I.
- 503. I'm sorry I didn't give you
a heads-up, okay?
- 504. - But if I had...
- 505. Tony, no more of this
"ready, fire, aim" business.
- 506. - You understand me?
- That was Dad's line.
- 507. You gotta let me handle this.
- 508. We're gonna have to play
a whole different kind of ball now.
- 509. We're going to have
to take a lot of heat.
- 510. I want you to promise me
that you're gonna lay low.
- 511. Stark Industries!
- 512. I've got one recommendation!
- 513. Sell, sell, sell!
- 514. Abandon ship!
- 515. Does the Hindenburg ring any bells?
- 516. Let me show you the new
Stark Industries business plan!
- 517. Look, that's a weapons company
that doesn't make weapons!
- 518. Pepper. How big are your hands?
- 519. - What?
- How big are your hands?
- 520. - I don't understand why...
- Get down here. I need you.
- 521. Hey.
- 522. Let's see them. Show me your hands.
- 523. Let's see them.
- 524. Oh, wow. They are small.
Very petite, indeed.
- 525. I just need your help for a sec.
- 526. Oh, my God, is that the thing
that's keeping you alive?
- 527. It was. It is now an antique.
- 528. This is what will be keeping me alive
for the foreseeable future.
- 529. I'm swapping it up for an upgraded unit,
and I just ran into a little speed bump.
- 530. - Speed bump, what does that mean?
- It's nothing. It's just a little snag.
- 531. There's an exposed wire
under this device.
- 532. And it's contacting the socket wall
and causing a little bit of a short.
- 533. It's fine.
- 534. - What do you want me to do?
- Put that on the table over there.
- 535. - That is irrelevant.
- Oh, my God!
- 536. I want you to reach in, and you're just
gonna gently lift the wire out.
- 537. - Is it safe?
- Yeah, it should be fine.
- 538. It's like Operation.
You just don't let it touch
- 539. the socket wall or it goes "beep."
- 540. - What do you mean, "Operation"?
- It's just a game, never mind.
- 541. - Just gently lift the wire. Okay? Great.
- 542. You know, I don't think
that I'm qualified to do this.
- 543. No, you're fine.
You're the most capable, qualified,
- 544. trustworthy person I've ever met.
You're gonna do great.
- 545. Is it too much of a problem to ask?
- 546. - Okay, okay.
- I really need your help here.
- 547. Okay.
- 548. Oh, there's pus!
- 549. It's not pus. It's an inorganic
plasmic discharge from the device,
- 550. - not from my body.
- It smells!
- 551. Yeah, it does.
- 552. The copper wire.
The copper wire, you got it?
- 553. - Okay, I got it! I got it!
- Okay, you got it?
- 554. Now, don't let it touch the sides
when you're coming out!
- 555. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
- 556. That's what
I was trying to tell you before.
- 557. Okay, now make sure
that when you pull it out, you don't...
- 558. There's a magnet at the end of it!
That was it. You just pulled it out.
- 559. - Oh, God!
- Okay, I was not expecting...
- 560. - Don't put it back in! Don't put it back in!
- Okay, what do I do?
- 561. What's wrong?
- 562. Nothing,
I'm just going into cardiac arrest
- 563. 'cause you yanked it out like a trout...
- 564. - What? You said it was safe!
- We gotta hurry. Take this. Take this.
- 565. - You gotta switch it out really quick.
- Okay. Okay.
- 566. - Tony? It's going to be okay.
- 567. - Is it?
- It's gonna be okay.
- 568. - I'm gonna make this okay.
- Let's hope.
- 569. Okay, you're gonna attach that
to the base plate. Make sure you...
- 570. Was that so hard? That was fun, right?
Here, I got it. I got it. Here.
- 571. Nice.
- 572. - Are you okay?
- Yeah, I feel great.
- 573. You okay?
- 574. Don't ever, ever, ever,
- 575. ever ask me to do
anything like that ever again.
- 576. I don't have anyone but you.
- 577. Anyway...
- 578. - What do you want me to do with this?
- 579. Destroy it.
- 580. Incinerate it.
- 581. You don't want to keep it?
- 582. Pepper, I've been called many things.
"Nostalgic" is not one of them.
- 583. - Will that be all, Mr. Stark?
- That will be all, Miss Potts.
- 584. Hey, Butterfingers, come here.
- 585. What's all this stuff
doing on top of my desk?
- 586. That's my phone,
that's a picture of me and my dad.
- 587. Right there. In the garbage.
All that stuff.
- 588. The future of air combat.
Is it manned or unmanned?
- 589. I'll tell you, in my experience,
- 590. no unmanned aerial vehicle
will ever trump a pilot's instinct,
- 591. his insight,
- 592. that ability to look
into a situation beyond the obvious
- 593. and discern its outcome,
or a pilot's judgment.
- 594. Colonel?
Why not a pilot without the plane?
- 595. Look who fell out of the sky.
Mr. Tony Stark.
- 596. - Hello, sir.
- Speaking of manned or unmanned,
- 597. you gotta get him to tell you
about the time he guessed wrong
- 598. at spring break.
Just remember that, spring break, 1987.
- 599. - That lovely lady you woke up with.
- Don't do that!
- 600. - What was his name?
- Don't do that.
- 601. - Was it Ivan?
- Don't do that.
- 602. They'll believe it. Don't do that.
- 603. - Okay.
- Don't do that.
- 604. - Pleasure meeting you.
- Give us a couple minutes, you guys.
- 605. - I'm surprised.
- 606. I swear, I didn't expect to see you
walking around so soon.
- 607. I'm doing a little better than walking.
- 608. - Really?
- 609. Rhodey, I'm working on something big.
- 610. I came to talk to you.
I want you to be a part of it.
- 611. You're about to make a whole
lot of people around here real happy,
- 612. 'cause that little stunt
at the press conference,
- 613. that was a doozy.
- 614. This is not for the military. I'm not...
- 615. What? You're a humanitarian now
- 616. - I need you to listen to me.
- 617. What you need is time
to get your mind right.
- 618. - I'm serious.
- 619. It's nice seeing you, Tony.
- 620. Thanks.
- 621. - Jarvis, you up?
- For you, sir, always.
- 622. I'd like to open a new project file,
index as Mark Two.
- 623. Shall I store this on
the Stark Industries Central Database?
- 624. Actually, I don't know
who to trust right now.
- 625. Till further notice, why don't we just
keep everything on my private server?
- 626. Working on a secret project,
are we, sir?
- 627. I don't want this winding up
in the wrong hands.
- 628. Maybe in mine,
it can actually do some good.
- 629. Next. Up.
- 630. Not in the boot, Dummy. Right here.
You got me?
- 631. Stay put. Nice.
- 632. You're of no benefit at all.
Move down to the toe. I got this.
- 633. Okay, I'm sorry, am I in your way?
- 634. Up.
- 635. Screw it. Don't even move.
- 636. You are a tragedy.
- 637. Okay, let's do this right.
- 638. Start mark, half a meter,
and back and center.
- 639. Dummy, look alive.
You're on standby for fire safety.
- 640. You, roll it.
- 641. Okay. Activate hand controls.
- 642. We're gonna start off nice and easy.
- 643. We're gonna see if
10% thrust capacity achieves lift.
- 644. And three,
- 645. two,
- 646. one.
- 647. Up two. All right, set that.
- 648. I've been buzzing you.
Did you hear the intercom?
- 649. Yeah, everything's... What?
- 650. - Obadiah's upstairs.
- 651. - What would you like me to tell him?
- Great. I'll be right up.
- 652. Okay.
- 653. I thought you said
you were done making weapons.
- 654. It is.
- 655. This is a flight stabilizer.
It's completely harmless.
- 656. I didn't expect that.
- 657. How'd it go?
- 658. It went that bad, huh?
- 659. Just because I brought pizza
back from New York
- 660. - doesn't mean it went bad.
- Sure doesn't. Oh, boy.
- 661. It would have gone better
if you were there.
- 662. You told me to lay low.
That's what I've been doing.
- 663. - I lay low, and you take care of all...
- Hey, come on. In public. The press.
- 664. - This was a board of directors meeting.
- This was a board of directors meeting?
- 665. The board is claiming
you have posttraumatic stress.
- 666. They're filing an injunction.
- 667. - A what?
- They want to lock you out.
- 668. Why, 'cause the stocks
dipped 40 points?
- 669. We knew that was gonna happen.
- 670. - Fifty-six and a half.
- It doesn't matter.
- 671. We own the controlling interest
in the company.
- 672. Tony, the board has rights, too.
- 673. They're making the case
that you and your new direction
- 674. - isn't in the company's best interest.
- I'm being responsible!
- 675. That's a new direction for me,
for the company.
- 676. I mean, me on the company's behalf
being responsible for the way that...
- 677. This is great.
- 678. - Oh, come on. Tony. Tony.
- I'll be in the shop.
- 679. Hey, hey! Hey, Tony. Listen.
- 680. I'm trying to turn this thing around,
but you gotta give me something.
- 681. Something to pitch them.
- 682. Let me have the engineers analyze that.
You know, draw up some specs.
- 683. - No. No, absolutely not.
- It'll give me a bone to throw the boys
- 684. - in New York!
- This one stays with me.
- 685. - That's it, Obie. Forget it.
- All right, well, this stays with me, then.
- 686. Go on, here, you can have a piece.
- 687. - Take two.
- Thank you.
- 688. You mind if I come down there
and see what you're doing?
- 689. Good night, Obie.
- 690. Day 11, test 37, configuration 2.0.
For lack of a better option,
- 691. Dummy is still on fire safety.
If you douse me again,
- 692. and I'm not on fire,
I'm donating you to a city college.
- 693. All right, nice and easy.
- 694. Seriously, just gonna start off
with 1% thrust capacity.
- 695. And three, two, one.
- 696. Okay.
- 697. Please don't follow me around
with it, either,
- 698. 'cause I feel like I'm gonna
catch on fire spontaneously.
- 699. Just stand down!
If something happens, then come in.
- 700. And again, let's bring it up to 2.5.
- 701. Three, two, one.
- 702. Okay, this is where I don't want to be!
- 703. Not the car, not the car!
- 704. Table!
- 705. Could be worse! Could be worse!
We're fine! Okay.
- 706. No!
- 707. Yeah, I can fly.
- 708. - Jarvis, are you there?
- At your service, sir.
- 709. - Engage Heads Up Display.
- 710. Import all preferences
from home interface.
- 711. Will do, sir.
- 712. All right, what do you say?
- 713. I have indeed been uploaded, sir.
We're online and ready.
- 714. Can we start the virtual walk-around?
- 715. Importing preferences
and calibrating virtual environment.
- 716. Do a check on control surfaces.
- 717. As you wish.
- 718. Test complete. Preparing to
power down and begin diagnostics.
- 719. Yeah. Tell you what.
Do a weather and ATC check.
- 720. Start listening in on ground control.
- 721. Sir, there are still terabytes
- 722. of calculations needed
before an actual flight is...
- 723. Jarvis! Sometimes you got to run
before you can walk.
- 724. Ready? In three, two, one.
- 725. Handles like a dream.
- 726. All right, let's see what
this thing can do.
- 727. What's SR-71's record?
- 728. The altitude record for fixed wing flight
is 85,000 feet, sir.
- 729. Records are made to be broken!
- 730. Sir, there is a potentially fatal
buildup of ice occurring.
- 731. Keep going!
- 732. Higher!
- 733. We iced up, Jarvis!
Deploy flaps! Jarvis!
- 734. Come on, we got to break the ice!
- 735. Kill power.
- 736. Notes. Main transducer feels sluggish
at plus 40 altitude.
- 737. Hull pressurization is problematic.
I'm thinking icing is the probable factor.
- 738. A very astute observation, sir.
- 739. Perhaps, if you intend
to visit other planets,
- 740. we should improve the exosystems.
- 741. Connect to the sys. Co.
Have it reconfigure the shell metals.
- 742. Use the gold titanium alloy from
the seraphim tactical satellite.
- 743. That should ensure a fuselage integrity
while maintaining power-to-weight ratio.
- 744. - Got it?
- 745. Shall I render
using proposed specifications?
- 746. Thrill me.
- 747. Tonight's red-hot red carpet is right
here at the Disney Concert Hall,
- 748. where Tony Stark's third annual benefit
for the Firefighter's Family Fund
- 749. has become the place to be
for L.A.'s high society.
- 750. Jarvis, we get an invite for that?
- 751. I have no record of an invitation, sir.
- 752. hasn't been seen in public...
- 753. since his bizarre and highly
controversial press conference.
- 754. Some claim he's suffering
from posttraumatic stress
- 755. and has been bedridden for weeks.
Whatever the case may be,
- 756. no one expects an appearance
from him tonight.
- 757. The render is complete.
- 758. A little ostentatious, don't you think?
- 759. What was I thinking?
You're usually so discreet.
- 760. Tell you what.
Throw a little hot-rod red in there.
- 761. Yes, that should help you
keep a low profile.
- 762. The render is complete.
- 763. Hey, I like it. Fabricate it. Paint it.
- 764. Commencing automated assembly.
- 765. Estimated completion time is five hours.
- 766. Don't wait up for me, honey.
- 767. Weapons manufacturing is only
one small part of what Stark Industries
- 768. is all about, and our partnership
with the fire and rescue community...
- 769. - Hey, Tony, remember me?
- Sure don't.
- 770. You look great, Hef.
- 771. We're going to have a great quarter.
- 772. What's the world coming to when
a guy's got to crash his own party?
- 773. Look at you. Hey, what a surprise.
- 774. I'll see you inside.
- 775. Hey. Listen, take it slow, all right?
- 776. I think I got the board
right where we want them.
- 777. You got it. Just cabin fever.
I'll just be a minute.
- 778. - Give me a Scotch. I'm starving.
- Mr. Stark?
- 779. - Yeah?
- Agent Coulson.
- 780. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
The guy from the...
- 781. Strategic Homeland Intervention,
Enforcement and Logistics Division.
- 782. God, you need a new name for that.
- 783. Yeah, I hear that a lot.
- 784. Listen, I know this must be a trying time
for you, but we need to debrief you.
- 785. There's still
a lot of unanswered questions,
- 786. and time can be a factor
with these things.
- 787. Let's just put something on the books.
- 788. How about the 24th at 7:00 p.m.
at Stark Industries?
- 789. Tell you what.
You got it. You're absolutely right.
- 790. Well, I'm going to go to my assistant,
and we'll make a date.
- 791. You look fantastic!
I didn't recognize you.
- 792. - What are you doing here?
- Just avoiding government agents.
- 793. - Are you by yourself?
- Yes. Where'd you get that dress?
- 794. - Oh, it was a birthday present.
- That's great.
- 795. - From you, actually.
- Well, I got great taste.
- 796. Yes.
- 797. - You want to dance?
- Oh, no.
- 798. - All right, come on.
- Thank you. No.
- 799. Am I making you uncomfortable?
- 800. No. No. I always forget to wear
deodorant and dance with my boss
- 801. in front of everyone that I work with
in a dress with no back.
- 802. - You look great and you smell great.
- Oh, God.
- 803. But I could fire you if that would
take the edge off.
- 804. I actually don't think that
you could tie your shoes without me.
- 805. - I'd make it a week. Sure.
- 806. What's your Social Security number?
- 807. - Five.
- 808. - Right.
- 809. You're missing just
a couple of digits there.
- 810. The other eight?
So I got you for the other eight.
- 811. - How about a little air?
- Yes, I need some air.
- 812. - That was totally weird.
- Totally harmless.
- 813. It was totally not harmless, by the way.
- 814. We're dancing. No one's even watching.
- 815. Everybody who I work with...
No, you know why?
- 816. I think you lost objectivity. I think
they just... People... We just danced.
- 817. No, it was not just a dance. You don't
understand because you're you.
- 818. And everybody knows
exactly who you are
- 819. and how you are with girls
and all of that, which is completely fine.
- 820. But, you know, then me, you're my boss,
- 821. - and I'm dancing with you.
- I don't think it was taken that way.
- 822. Because it makes me look like
the one who's trying to...
- 823. - I just think you're overstating it.
- You know, and we're here,
- 824. and then I'm wearing this ridiculous
- 825. dress, and then we were dancing
like that and...
- 826. - I would like a drink, please.
- Got it, okay.
- 827. - I would like a vodka martini, please.
- 828. Very dry with olives, a lot of olives.
Like, at least three olives.
- 829. Two vodka martinis, extra dry,
extra olives, extra fast.
- 830. Make one of them dirty, will you?
- 831. Wow. Tony Stark.
- 832. - Oh, hey.
- Fancy seeing you here.
- 833. - Carrie.
- 834. That's right.
- 835. You have a lot of nerve
showing up here tonight.
- 836. Can I at least get a reaction from you?
- 837. Panic. I would say panic is my reaction.
- 838. 'Cause I was referring
to your company's
- 839. involvement in this latest atrocity.
- 840. Yeah. They just put my name on the
invitation. I don't know what to tell you.
- 841. I actually almost bought it,
hook, line and sinker.
- 842. I was out of town for a couple months,
in case you didn't hear.
- 843. Is this what you call accountability?
- 844. It's a town called Gulmira. Heard of it?
- 845. - When were these taken?
- 846. - I didn't approve any shipment.
- Well, your company did.
- 847. Well, I'm not my company.
- 848. - Please, do you mind?
- Have you seen these pictures?
- 849. - What's going on in Gulmira?
- Tony, Tony.
- 850. - You can't afford to be this naive.
- You know what? I was naive before,
- 851. when they said,
"Here's the line. We don't cross it.
- 852. "This is how we do business."
- 853. If we're double-dealing under the table...
- 854. Tony, your picture, please!
- 855. Let's take a picture. Come on.
- 856. Tony. Who do you think locked you out?
- 857. I was the one who filed
the injunction against you.
- 858. It was the only way I could protect you.
- 859. No. No.
- 860. The 15-mile hike to the outskirts
of Gulmira can only be described
- 861. as a descent into hell,
into a modern day Heart of Darkness.
- 862. Simple farmers and herders
from peaceful villages
- 863. have been driven from their homes,
- 864. displaced from their lands by warlords
emboldened by a new-found power.
- 865. Villagers have been forced to take
shelter in whatever crude dwellings
- 866. they can find in the ruins
of other villages,
- 867. or here in the remnants
of an old Soviet smelting plant.
- 868. Recent violence has been attributed
to a group of foreign fighters
- 869. referred to by locals as the Ten Rings.
- 870. As you can see, these men are
heavily armed and on a mission.
- 871. A mission that could prove fatal
to anyone who stands in their way.
- 872. With no political will
or international pressure,
- 873. there's very little hope
for these refugees.
- 874. Around me, a woman begging for news
on her husband,
- 875. who was kidnapped by insurgents,
- 876. either forced to join their militia...
- 877. Desperate refugees clutch
- 878. holding them up to anyone
who will stop.
- 879. A child's simple question,
"Where are my mother and father?"
- 880. There's very little hope
for these refugees,
- 881. refugees who can only wonder who,
if anyone, will help.
- 882. He's all yours.
- 883. What the hell was that?
Were we cleared to go in there?
- 884. No, they were using human shields.
We never got the green light.
- 885. Put me through to State.
They're going to be all over this.
- 886. Get those monitors up!
- 887. We got a bogey!
- 888. - Wasn't Air Force!
- We got the CIA on the line?
- 889. I've got Langley on the line.
They want to know if it's us.
- 890. No, it definitely is not us, sir!
- 891. - It wasn't Navy.
- Wasn't Marines.
- 892. I need answers!
Can I please get eyes on target?
- 893. - Negative, negative.
- Cannot identify.
- 894. Get me Colonel Rhodes from
Weapons Development down here now!
- 895. We ran an ID check
- 896. with all known databases.
We have nothing.
- 897. Any high altitude surveillance
in the region?
- 898. We got an AWAC
and a Global Hawk in the area.
- 899. So this thing just appeared
out of nowhere?
- 900. How come it didn't show up
on the radar?
- 901. Got a minimal radar cross-section, sir.
- 902. - Is it stealth?
- No, sir, it's tiny.
- 903. We think it's an unmanned
- 904. Colonel, what are we dealing with here?
- 905. - Let me make a call.
- Sergeant, clear a hole.
- 906. - Hello?
- 907. - Who's this?
- It's Rhodes.
- 908. - Sorry, hello?
- I said it's Rhodes.
- 909. - Speak up, please.
- What in the hell is that noise?
- 910. - Oh, yeah, I'm driving with the top down.
- Yeah, well, I need your help right now.
- 911. It's funny how that works, huh?
- 912. Yeah. Speaking of funny, we've got a
weapons depot that was just blown up
- 913. a few clicks from where
you were being held captive.
- 914. Well, that's a hot spot.
- 915. Sounds like someone stepped in
and did your job for you, huh?
- 916. Why do you sound out of breath, Tony?
- 917. I'm not, I was just jogging in the canyon.
- 918. - I thought you were driving.
- Right, I was driving
- 919. to the canyon, where I'm going to jog.
- 920. You sure you don't have any tech
in that area I should know about?
- 921. - Nope!
- Bogey spotted!
- 922. - Whiplash, come in hot.
- Okay, good, 'cause I'm staring at one
- 923. right now, and it's about to be blown
to kingdom come.
- 924. That's my exit.
- 925. Ballroom, this is Whiplash One.
I've got the bogey in my sights.
- 926. Whiplash One, what is it?
- 927. I've got no idea.
- 928. - You have radio contact?
- Non responsive, sir.
- 929. Then you are clear to engage.
- 930. Hit it.
- 931. That bogey just went supersonic.
I got a lock!
- 932. - Inbound missile.
- 933. Wait a second. Bogey deployed flares!
- 934. Deploy flaps!
- 935. Holy!
- 936. That thing just jumped off the radar, sir.
- 937. The sat visual has been lost.
- 938. No way that's a UAV.
- 939. What is it?
- 940. I can't see anything.
- 941. Whatever it was, it just bought the farm.
- 942. I think bogey's been handled, sir.
- 943. - Hello?
- Hi, Rhodey, it's me.
- 944. - It's who?
- I'm sorry, it is me.
- 945. You asked.
What you were asking about is me.
- 946. No, see, this isn't a game.
- 947. You do not send civilian equipment
into my active war zone.
- 948. - You understand that?
- This is not a piece of equipment.
- 949. I'm in it. It's a suit. It's me!
- 950. Rhodey, you got anything for me?
- 951. - Mark your position and return to base.
- Roger that, Ballroom.
- 952. On your belly!
- 953. It looks like a man!
- 954. Shake him off! Roll! Roll!
- 955. I'm hit! I'm hit!
- 956. It's confirmed. He has been hit.
- 957. Punch out! Punch out!
- 958. Whiplash One down.
- 959. Whiplash Two, do you see a chute?
- 960. Negative! No chute, no chute!
- 961. My chute's jammed!
- 962. Sir, I've got a visual on the bogey.
- 963. Whiplash Two, reengage.
If you get a clear shot, you take it.
- 964. Major, we don't even know
what we're shooting at.
- 965. - Call off the Raptors.
- That thing just took out an F-22
- 966. inside a legal no fly zone!
- 967. Whiplash Two,
if you have a clear shot, take it!
- 968. You've been reengaged.
Execute evasive maneuver.
- 969. Keep going!
- 970. Good chute! Good chute!
- 971. - Tony, you still there?
- Hey, thanks.
- 972. Oh, my God, you crazy son of a bitch.
- 973. You owe me a plane.
You know that, right?
- 974. Yeah, well, technically, he hit me.
- 975. Now are you going to come by
and see what I'm working on?
- 976. No, no, no, no, no, no,
the less I know, the better.
- 977. Now, what am I supposed
to tell the press?
- 978. Training exercise.
Isn't that the usual BS?
- 979. It's not that simple.
- 980. An unfortunate training exercise
- 981. involving an F-22 Raptor
- 982. I am pleased to report
that the pilot was not injured.
- 983. As for the unexpected turn of events
on the ground in Gulmira,
- 984. it is still unclear
who or what intervened,
- 985. but I can assure you that the United
States government was not involved.
- 986. Hey!
- 987. It is a tight fit, sir.
- 988. Sir, the more you struggle,
the more this is going to hurt.
- 989. Be gentle. This is my first time.
- 990. I designed this to come off, so... Hey.
- 991. - I really should be able to...
- Please, try not to move, sir.
- 992. What's going on here?
- 993. Let's face it. This is not the worst
thing you've caught me doing.
- 994. Are those bullet holes?
- 995. Welcome.
- 996. Compliments of Tony Stark.
- 997. If you'd killed him when you were
supposed to, you'd still have a face.
- 998. You paid us trinkets to kill a prince.
- 999. Show me the weapon.
- 1000. Come. Leave your guards outside.
- 1001. His escape bore unexpected fruit.
- 1002. So this is how he did it.
- 1003. This is only a first, crude effort.
- 1004. Stark has perfected his design.
- 1005. He has made a masterpiece of death.
- 1006. A man with a dozen of these
can rule all of Asia.
- 1007. And you dream of Stark's throne.
- 1008. We have a common enemy.
- 1009. If we are still in business,
- 1010. I will give you these designs
- 1011. as a gift.
- 1012. And in turn,
- 1013. I hope you'll repay me with
a gift of iron soldiers.
- 1014. Technology.
- 1015. It's always been your Achilles' heel
in this part of the world.
- 1016. Don't worry. It'll only last for 15 minutes.
- 1017. That's the least of your problems.
- 1018. Crate up the armor and the rest of it.
- 1019. All right, let's finish up here.
- 1020. Set up Sector 16
underneath the arc reactor,
- 1021. and I'm going to want this data masked.
Recruit our top engineers.
- 1022. I want a prototype right away.
- 1023. Hey. You busy?
You mind if I send you on an errand?
- 1024. I need you to go to my office.
- 1025. You're going to hack into the mainframe
and you're going to retrieve all
- 1026. the recent shipping manifests.
This is a lock chip.
- 1027. This'll get you in.
- 1028. It's probably under Executive Files.
- 1029. If not, they put it on a ghost drive,
in which case you need
- 1030. to look for the lowest numeric heading.
- 1031. And what do you plan to do with
this information if I bring it back here?
- 1032. Same drill.
- 1033. They've been dealing under the table,
and I'm going to stop them.
- 1034. I'm going to find my weapons
and destroy them.
- 1035. Tony,
- 1036. you know that
I would help you with anything,
- 1037. but I cannot help you if
you're going to start all of this again.
- 1038. There is nothing except this.
There's no art opening.
- 1039. There is no benefit.
There is nothing to sign.
- 1040. There is the next mission
and nothing else.
- 1041. Is that so?
- 1042. Well, then, I quit.
- 1043. You stood by my side all these years
- 1044. while I reaped
the benefits of destruction.
- 1045. And now that I'm trying
to protect the people
- 1046. that I put in harm's way,
you're going to walk out?
- 1047. You're going to kill yourself, Tony.
I'm not going to be a part of it.
- 1048. I shouldn't be alive,
- 1049. unless it was for a reason.
- 1050. I'm not crazy, Pepper.
- 1051. I just finally know what I have to do.
- 1052. And I know in my heart that it's right.
- 1053. You're all I have, too, you know.
- 1054. Sector 16?
What are you up to, Obadiah?
- 1055. You did not tell us that the target you
paid us to kill was the great Tony Stark.
- 1056. - As you can see, Obadiah Stane...
- Oh, my God.
- 1057. your deception and lies
will cost you dearly.
- 1058. The price to kill Tony Stark
has just gone up.
- 1059. So, what are we going to do about this?
- 1060. I know what you're going through,
- 1061. Tony. He always gets the good stuff,
- 1062. I was so happy when he came home.
- 1063. It was like we got him back
from the dead.
- 1064. Now I realize,
- 1065. well, Tony never really did
come home, did he?
- 1066. He left a part of himself in that cave.
- 1067. Breaks my heart.
- 1068. Well, he's a complicated person.
- 1069. He's been through a lot.
I think he'll be all right.
- 1070. You are a very rare woman.
- 1071. Tony doesn't know how lucky he is.
- 1072. Thank you. Thanks.
- 1073. I'd better get back there.
- 1074. Is that today's paper?
- 1075. Yes.
- 1076. Do you mind?
- 1077. - Not at all.
- 1078. Of course.
- 1079. Take care.
- 1080. Ms. Potts? We had an appointment.
Did you forget about our appointment?
- 1081. Nope, right now. Come with me.
- 1082. - Right now?
- We're going to have it right now.
- 1083. - Yeah, walk with me.
- 1084. I'm going to give you the meeting
of your life. Your office.
- 1085. Yeah, we've been working
our best to do it.
- 1086. Absolutely, we're...
I'm going to have to call you back.
- 1087. Mr. Stane? Sir, we've explored
- 1088. what you've asked us, and it seems
as though there's a little hiccup.
- 1089. - Actually...
- A hiccup?
- 1090. Yes, to power the suit, sir,
the technology actually doesn't exist.
- 1091. - So it's...
- Wait, wait, wait. The technology?
- 1092. William, here is the technology.
I've asked you to simply make it smaller.
- 1093. Okay, sir, and that's what we're trying
to do, but honestly, it's impossible.
- 1094. Tony Stark was able to build this
in a cave! With a box of scraps!
- 1095. Well, I'm sorry. I'm not Tony Stark.
- 1096. Tony?
- 1097. Tony, are you there? Hello?
- 1098. Breathe.
- 1099. Easy, easy.
- 1100. You remember this one, right?
- 1101. It's a shame the government
didn't approve it.
- 1102. There's so many applications
for causing short-term paralysis.
- 1103. Tony.
- 1104. When I ordered the hit on you,
- 1105. I worried that I was
- 1106. killing the golden goose.
- 1107. But, you see, it was just
- 1108. fate that you survived that.
- 1109. You had one last golden egg to give.
- 1110. Do you really think that just because
you have an idea, it belongs to you?
- 1111. Your father, he helped give us
the atomic bomb.
- 1112. Now, what kind of world would it be
today if he was as selfish as you?
- 1113. Oh, it's beautiful.
- 1114. Tony, this is your Ninth Symphony.
- 1115. What a masterpiece. Look at that.
- 1116. This is your legacy.
- 1117. A new generation of weapons
with this at its heart.
- 1118. Weapons that will help steer the world
back on course,
- 1119. put the balance of power in our hands.
- 1120. The right hands.
- 1121. I wish you could've seen my prototype.
- 1122. It's not as...
- 1123. Well, not as conservative as yours.
- 1124. Too bad you had to involve Pepper
- 1125. I would have preferred that she lived.
- 1126. What do you mean,
he paid to have Tony killed?
- 1127. Pepper, slow down.
Why would Obadiah...
- 1128. Okay, where's Tony now?
- 1129. I don't know.
He's not answering his phone.
- 1130. Please go over there
and make sure everything's okay.
- 1131. Thank you, Rhodey. I know a shortcut.
- 1132. Good boy.
- 1133. Tony?
- 1134. Tony?
- 1135. Tony?
- 1136. Tony?
- 1137. Tony!
- 1138. Tony! You okay?
- 1139. - Where's Pepper?
- She's fine. She's with five agents.
- 1140. They're about to arrest Obadiah.
- 1141. That's not going to be enough.
- 1142. Section 16. Section 16. There it is.
- 1143. My key's not working.
It's not opening the door.
- 1144. Oh, wow! What's that?
It's, like, a little device?
- 1145. It's, like, a thing that's going
to pick the lock?
- 1146. You might want to take
a few steps back.
- 1147. That's the coolest thing I've ever seen.
- 1148. Not bad, huh? Let's do it.
- 1149. You need me to do anything else?
- 1150. Keep the skies clear.
- 1151. Damn!
- 1152. Next time, baby.
- 1153. Looks like you were right.
He was building a suit.
- 1154. I thought it'd be bigger.
- 1155. How do you think the Mark One
chest piece is going to hold up?
- 1156. The suit's at 48% power and falling, sir.
- 1157. That chest piece
was never designed for sustained flight.
- 1158. Keep me posted.
- 1159. Pepper!
- 1160. - Tony! Tony, are you okay?
- I'm fine. How are...
- 1161. - Obadiah, he's gone insane!
- I know.
- 1162. - Listen, you'd better get out of there.
- He built a suit.
- 1163. Get out of there right now!
- 1164. Where do you think you're going?
- 1165. Your services are no longer required.
- 1166. Stane!
- 1167. I love this suit!
- 1168. - Put them down!
- Collateral damage, Tony.
- 1169. Divert power to chest RT.
- 1170. Power reduced to 19%.
- 1171. Lady!
- 1172. No, no, no, no, no, no!
- 1173. For 30 years, I've been holding you up!
- 1174. I built this company from nothing!
- 1175. Nothing is going to stand in my way.
- 1176. Least of all you!
- 1177. Impressive!
You've upgraded your armor!
- 1178. I've made some upgrades of my own!
- 1179. Sir, it appears that his suit can fly.
- 1180. Duly noted.
Take me to maximum altitude.
- 1181. With only 15% power,
the odds of reaching that...
- 1182. I know the math! Do it!
- 1183. Sir, you're not going to believe this.
That thing is back.
- 1184. Get me Major Allen. Scramble the jets!
- 1185. Not necessary, people.
Just a training exercise.
- 1186. Yes, sir.
- 1187. - Thirteen percent power, sir.
- 1188. - Eleven percent.
- Keep going!
- 1189. - Seven percent power.
- Just leave it on the screen!
- 1190. Stop telling me!
- 1191. You had a great idea, Tony, but my
suit is more advanced in every way!
- 1192. How'd you solve the icing problem?
- 1193. Icing problem?
- 1194. Might want to look into it.
- 1195. Two percent.
- 1196. We are now running
on emergency backup power.
- 1197. - Potts!
- Tony! Oh, my God, are you okay?
- 1198. I'm almost out of power. I've got to get
out of this thing. I'll be right there.
- 1199. Nice try!
- 1200. - Weapons status?
- Repulsors offline. Missiles offline.
- 1201. Flares!
- 1202. Very clever, Tony.
- 1203. - Potts?
- 1204. This isn't working.
- 1205. We're going to have to overload
the reactor and blast the roof.
- 1206. - Well, how are you going to do that?
- You're going to do it.
- 1207. Go to the central console,
open up all the circuits.
- 1208. When I get clear of the roof,
I'll let you know.
- 1209. You're going to hit
the master bypass button.
- 1210. It's going to fry everything up here.
- 1211. Okay. I'm going in now.
- 1212. Make sure you wait till I clear the roof.
I'll buy you some time.
- 1213. This looks important!
- 1214. I never had a taste for this sort of thing,
- 1215. but I must admit,
I'm deeply enjoying the suit!
- 1216. You finally outdid yourself, Tony!
- 1217. You'd have made your father proud!
- 1218. It's ready, Tony! Get off the roof!
- 1219. Tony!
- 1220. How ironic, Tony!
- 1221. Trying to rid the world of weapons,
you gave it its best one ever!
- 1222. - Pepper!
- And now I'm going to kill you with it!
- 1223. - You ripped out my targeting system!
- Time to hit the button!
- 1224. - You told me not to!
- Hold still, you little prick!
- 1225. - Just do it!
- You'll die!
- 1226. Push it!
- 1227. Tony!
- 1228. You've all received the official
statement of what occurred
- 1229. at Stark Industries last night.
- 1230. There have been unconfirmed reports
that a robotic prototype malfunctioned
- 1231. and caused damage to the arc reactor.
- 1232. Fortunately, a member
of Tony Stark's personal security staff...
- 1233. "Iron Man." That's kind of catchy.
It's got a nice ring to it.
- 1234. I mean, it's not technically accurate.
The suit's a gold-titanium alloy,
- 1235. but it's kind of evocative,
the imagery, anyway.
- 1236. Here's your alibi.
- 1237. Okay.
- 1238. - You were on your yacht.
- 1239. We have port papers that put you
in Avalon all night,
- 1240. and sworn statements
from 50 of your guests.
- 1241. See, I was thinking maybe we should
say it was just Pepper and me
- 1242. alone on the island.
- 1243. - That's what happened.
- All right.
- 1244. Just read it, word for word.
- 1245. There's nothing about Stane here.
- 1246. That's being handled. He's on vacation.
- 1247. Small aircraft have
such a poor safety record.
- 1248. But what about the whole cover story
that it's a bodyguard?
- 1249. He's my... I mean, is that...
That's kind of flimsy, don't you think?
- 1250. This isn't my first rodeo, Mr. Stark.
- 1251. Just stick to the official statement,
and soon, this will all be behind you.
- 1252. You've got 90 seconds.
- 1253. Agent Coulson?
- 1254. I just wanted to say thank you very much
for all of your help.
- 1255. That's what we do.
You'll be hearing from us.
- 1256. - From the Strategic Homeland...
- Just call us S.H.I.E.L.D.
- 1257. Right.
- 1258. - Let's get this show on the road.
- You know, it's actually not that bad.
- 1259. Even I don't think I'm Iron Man.
- 1260. - You're not Iron Man.
- Am so.
- 1261. - You're not.
- All right, suit yourself.
- 1262. You know, if I were Iron Man, I'd have
this girlfriend who knew my true identity.
- 1263. She'd be a wreck, 'cause she'd always
be worrying that I was going to die,
- 1264. yet so proud of the man I'd become.
- 1265. She'd be wildly conflicted,
which would only make her more
- 1266. crazy about me.
- 1267. Tell me you never think about that night.
- 1268. - What night?
- You know.
- 1269. Are you talking about the night that
we danced and went up on the roof,
- 1270. and then you went downstairs
to get me a drink,
- 1271. and you left me there, by myself?
- 1272. Is that the night you're talking about?
- 1273. Thought so.
- 1274. - Will that be all, Mr. Stark?
- Yes, that will be all, Miss Potts.
- 1275. And now, Mr. Stark has
prepared a statement.
- 1276. He will not be taking any questions.
- 1277. Been a while since I was in front of you.
I figure I'll stick to the cards this time.
- 1278. There's been speculation that I was
involved in the events that occurred
- 1279. on the freeway and the rooftop...
- 1280. I'm sorry, Mr. Stark, but do you
honestly expect us to believe that
- 1281. that was a bodyguard
in a suit that conveniently appeared,
- 1282. - despite the fact that you...
- I know that it's confusing.
- 1283. It is one thing to question the official
story, and another thing entirely
- 1284. to make wild accusations,
or insinuate that I'm a superhero.
- 1285. I never said you were a superhero.
- 1286. Didn't? Well, good, because that would
be outlandish and fantastic.
- 1287. I'm just not the hero type. Clearly.
- 1288. With this laundry list
of character defects,
- 1289. all the mistakes I've made,
- 1290. - largely public.
- Just stick to the cards, man.
- 1291. Yeah, okay. Yeah.
- 1292. The truth is
- 1293. I am Iron Man.
- 1294. Jarvis!
- 1295. Welcome home, sir.
- 1296. "I am Iron Man." You think you're
the only superhero in the world?
- 1297. Mr. Stark, you've become part
of a bigger universe.
- 1298. You just don't know it yet.
- 1299. Who the hell are you?
- 1300. Nick Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
- 1301. I'm here to talk to you
about the Avenger Initiative.
