Senator Stern: Our priority here is to have you turn over the Iron Man weapon to the American people.
Tony Stark: Well, you can forget it. We're safe. America is secure. You want my property - you can't have it! But I did you a big favor.
[stands and turns to face the Senate gallery]
Tony Stark: I have successfully privatized world peace.
[He flashes the peace sign, to standing applause]

Selina Kyle: Did somebody say fish? I haven't be fed all day!
Batman: Eat floor.
[Throws Catwoman down]
Batman: High fiber.

Tony Stark: [about to jump out of a plane] Okay, give me a smooch for good luck, I might not make it back!
[Instead, Pepper kisses the "lips" of Stark's helmet and throws it out of the plane]
Pepper Potts: Go get 'em, boss!
Tony Stark: [diving after the helmet] You complete me!

It's good to be back!

Tony Stark

Why do we fall, sir? So that we might better learn to pick ourselves up.

Alfred Pennyworth

Drive sports cars, date movie stars, buy things that are not for sale... who knows, Master Wayne? You start pretending to have fun, you might even have a little by accident.

Alfred Pennyworth

What you did to Tony Stark on that racetrack... WOW!

Justin Hammer

[Stark teaches Natascha how to operate his repulsor] Nail it!

Tony Stark

Tony Stark: Contrary to popular belief, I know exactly what I'm doing...
[generates a new arc reactor, amidst a glass-splintering explosion]
Tony Stark: Oops!

This lone gunslinger act is unnecessary... you don't have to do this alone!
[the War Machine rises from a platform]

Col. James 'Rhodey' Rhodes

Alfred Pennyworth: Are you coming back to Gotham for long, sir?
Bruce Wayne: As long as it takes. I'm gonna show the people of Gotham that their city doesn't belong to the criminals and the corrupt.
Alfred Pennyworth: In the depression, your father nearly bankrupted Wayne Enterprises combating poverty. He believed his example could inspire the wealthy of Gotham to save their city.
Bruce Wayne: Did it?
Alfred Pennyworth: In a way. Their murders shocked the wealthy and the powerful into action.
Bruce Wayne: People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and I can't do that as Bruce Wayne, as a man I'm flesh and blood I can be ignored I can be destroyed but as a symbol, as a symbol I can be incorruptible, I can be everlasting.
Alfred Pennyworth: What symbol?
Bruce Wayne: Something elemental, something terrifying.
Alfred Pennyworth: I assume that as you're taking on the underworld, this symbol is a persona to protect those you care about from reprisals.
Bruce Wayne: You thinking about Rachel?
Alfred Pennyworth: Actually, sir, I was thinking about myself.

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Will that be all, Mr. Stark?
Tony Stark: Yes, that will be all, Miss. Potts.
