“Hail HYDRA.” — Bucky Barnes

“No. No. I didn’t have a nightmare. Oh, come on. Really? You’re gonna do the notebook thing? Why? It’s passive aggressive. Okay. Okay. I crossed a name off the list of my amends yesterday. Don’t worry. I used all your three rules. Senator Atwood. She was a HYDRA pawn for years. Helped her get into office when I was the Winter Soldier. And after HYDRA disbanded, she continued to abuse the power I gave her. All I did was give some intel to the aide to convict her. And I wasn’t involved in anything else. What was rule number two? Then why isn’t it rule number one? I didn’t hurt anybody. Remember me? I promise. You know, you’re a cynic, Doc. Of course, I completed rule number three. I am no longer the Winter Soldier. I am James Bucky Barnes… and you’re part of my efforts to make amends. Well, like I said, I didn’t have any. Are you lashing out at me, Doc? Because that’s really unprofessional, you know? When did that start? Yelling at your clients? The notebook. That’s great. All right, give me a break. I’m trying, okay? This isn’t… this is new for me. I didn’t have a moment to deal with anything, you know? I had a little… calm in Wakanda. And other than that, I just went from one fight to another for 90 years. Peace. You’re a terrible shrink. To do what?” — Bucky Barnes

“Hey! Hey! Yori, what’s goin’ on? I thought we’re getting lunch. Whoa! Hang on. Okay, sorry. Yori, you can’t keep fighting with your neighbors. Come on, let’s get some food. But Izzy. We always go to Izzy on Wednesday. Hey, what if I buy? Mm-hmm… he would like to take you out on a date. Pinochle. Yeah. I’m really sorry about him. Wow. I can’t believe you did that. It’s a dance to these things. You can’t… you gotta warm up and I haven’t danced since 1943… it feels like. What’s wrong?” — Bucky Barnes

“Okay. Not really. I, um… tried the whole online dating thing. It’s pretty crazy. A lot of weird pictures. I mean, tiger photos? Half the time I don’t even know what I’m looking at. It’s… it’s a lot. A hundred and six. I, uh… have, uh… poor circulation. Yeah. Love ’em.” — Bucky Barnes

“What are you doing? Please don’t. Uh, hit! All right. Okay. Yeah, well… I have a sister. F-4. I was. They passed away. um, D-5. Yeah, excuse me. Forgot I owed you for lunch.” — Bucky Barnes

Sam Wilson

“Like it’s someone else’s.”

“LAF? I got it. You guys fly low, drop me off, I fly up to intercept. No treaties violated. Subtle. Got it. I got eyes on a plane. Any sign of LAF? They’ve already hijacked the plane. Okay, switching to plan B. Redwing, engage. Captain Vasant? Let’s get you out of here. Redwing, get ’em off our ass! What’s up? And I assume they have a problem with that. How long I got? I just did.”

“Steve represented the best in all of us. Courageous, righteous, hopeful. And he mastered posing stoically. The world has forever been changed. A few months ago, billions of people reappeared after five years away, sending the world into turmoil. We need new heroes. A few months ago, billions of people reappeared after five years away, sending the world into turmoil. We need new heroes. Ones suited for the times we’re in. Symbols… are nothing without the women and men that give them meaning. And this thing… I don’t know if there’s ever been a greater symbol. But it’s more about the man who propped it up, and he’s gone. So, today we honor Steve’s legacy. But also, we look to the future. So, thank you, Captain America. But this belongs to you.”

“Yeah, I’ve been at home. My sister and my nephews, man. When I left, they were babies. I come back they’re little men. It’s crazy, you know? Hey, we went for 70 years without anybody carryin’ it when Steve was on ice. So, I think we’ll be all right. When Steve first told me about the shield, the first words I said were, ‘it feels like it belongs to someone else.’ That someone else is Steve. Yeah. I trust people.”

“Blue for the snapper, orange for the whitefish. What’s up? How you gonna try to read me when you know I’m the one that reads you?”

“Baby being held together by duct tape and prayers. I thought we were selling it. We grew up on this thing. It’s not just mom and dad’s name on it, Sarah. This thing is a part of our family. Well, what if we don’t have to sell it? Oh! What’s goin’ on, man? I’m tryin’ to live like you. Nah. Come on, Carlos. I’m around here more than you. I’m always reppin’ NOLA. As soon as you give my sister back that $100 dollars you borrowed. Yeah. I’ll loan you $50.”

“Wait. So, why don’t you let me help? Right. But you tangled the house into this when you took those loans. Forgot how hard you hit. Sarah! Look, and don’t hit me again. What if you had money to fix it up, make it nice so you can charter it when you’re not out working the waters? We can take a loan and consolidate everything. It’ll take down your monthly. What? Yeah. But now you have me. All right. Either way, just let me help. I’ll set the appointment. Look, I won’t let you down. We can turn this shit around. Trust me. Always. Now, let’s get some dinner. I’m hungry.”

“Get the plates moving. Get some rice in there. Come on. I don’t play with these white folks. Look, I know you’re worried, all right? But I did the research. I ran the numbers. I know it will. And then we can renovate the kitchen. Now, you said you wanted to sell plates on the weekends, right? That’s great. You can introduce some of Grandma’s recipes and… shit. We gotta go. There’s no such thing as on time. You’re either early or late. Pick one. “

“I don’t know. Do you? Yeah! I didn’t want to say anything. You know… oh, man, it’s a dream come true, you know? Like, keeping my family’s business afloat by changin’ to a fishing and charter model. Thank you, but no, it doesn’t really work like that. There’s a tremendous amount of goodwill and because of that, people are inclined to help, which applies to the business. Sarah? Uh… I’ve been gone like several billion other people. But, if you look at our plan, I have government contracts, so, that’s proof of earnings. And I know for a face that we qualify for a SBA loan. Are you serious?”

“We’re gonna get that loan. I don’t care if I have to go to every bank in the city. That’s what life is, dealing with things. I knew that was gonna come up. Yeah, well, half the boat’s mine and so is the house. We’re not sellin’ our family’s legacy. Yep! Okay. Oh! Come on, baby. What you got for me? Come on! Come on! Shit!”

“So, this is the leader of the Flag Smashers, huh? I thought you were supposed to be monitoring them online. You’re lucky that’s all you got. He’s strong. Anything else happen outside the video? Nothin’. Look, I’ll circle back to you. Let’s keep this between me and you, okay?”

Joaquin Torres, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Disney+, Marvel Studios, Danny Ramirez

Joaquin Torres

“Sam, Torres here. Sending intel to your HUD right now. I’ll be your boots on the ground, sir. nah. Nothing yet. But I’ll keep tracking the chatter. Oh, we’re gonna need to call some people. Sam? Oh! All right, heads up! You’re about to fly into Libyan airspace. Yeah, yeah. A big problem. A big problem. Ninety seconds. Aw, shit. He’s outnumbered. Sam, we gotta fall back! We got it call it off! We gotta find another way! Whoo! Yeah!”

“You could try to reroute that to the other… well, you know, those poor techs can’t keep up with a billion returning IP addresses and your sick ass Stark-level tech. Hey, Avengers. He knows Arabic. Wait, can you say that again? Hold on a sec. Anyway, these LAF crews, man, they’re tryin’ to take advantage of all the chaos and make some money. And I get that, but there’s… oh, bam! Right there! You see these guys? They’re guys you gotta worry about. I’ve been stumbling into their manifestos and message boards. They’re called the Flag Smashers. There’s a lot worse names than that one. But basically, they think that the world was better during the Blip. Trust me, it wasn’t. Yeah. Essentially, these people, they want a world that’s unified without borders. So, you could see why a lot of people are into that. No doubt. I’ll… I’ll, uh… I’ll track the online chatter, see what they’re saying. Yeah. I do gotta ask you, though, ’cause online there’s just been a lot of stuff about Steve, actually. Um, crazy, crazy conspiracy theories. So, some people… some people, they think that he’s in a secret base on the moon looking down over us. But you didn’t, like… fly him to the moon? Oh… had to check. Oh, oh, I got you, man. All right. So, where are you off to? What are you doin’ there? Oh!”

“Do you know what we’re supposed to do? He’s getting away! Sorry. Uh… sorry. Hey, hey, hey! I don’t know jurisdiction works here, but I’mma have to place you under arrest.”

“Yeah, real nice guy. I was. I did. But you know sometimes you gotta get your hands dirty, or a broken orbital. He was. I mean, bro, they went dark as soon as it was all over. But that’s their M.O. We gotta keep our eyes and ears to the ground till they pop up again. No, man. My face was in the dirt before I knew what was happening. Why? What are you thinking? Wait. You don’t think he could be a… all right.”


“The criminal organization known as LAF is targeting Captain Vasant, one of our military liaisons. Yeah, they’re high-powered. We lost contact with Vasant’s plane just after it took off. We need you to make sure that LAF doesn’t deliver on their threat. Vasant’s plane has already entered Tunisian airspace. US military cannot be seen operating out there. First Lieutenant Torres, our intel officer, will be helping on the ground. And Sam, this has to be subtle.”

James Rhodes, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Disney+, Marvel Studios, Don Cheadle

Lieutenant Rhodes

“Take a walk? Yeah. Well, you should bring ’em out to D.C. sometime. I’ll teach ’em how to fly. You know, I mean, the right way. Crazy that nobody’s gonna be carryin’ the shield. That was a different time, Sam. I see you’re gonna make me ask. Why didn’t you take up the mantle? Hmm. World’s a crazy place right now. People are… well, nobody’s stable. Allies are now enemies. Alliances are all torn apart. The world’s broken. Everybody’s just looking for somebody to fix it. It’s a new day, brother. I’ll be in touch.”

Dr. Raynor

“So, Mr. Barnes, are you still having nightmares? James, I asked you a question. Are you still having nightmares? We’ve been doing this long enough that I can tell when you’re lying. Did something happen recently? You’re a civilian now. With your history, the government needs to know that you’re not gonna… it’s a condition of your pardon. So, tell me about your most recent nightmare. You don’t talk. I write. So, rule number one, you can’t do anything illegal. Rule number two? Nobody gets hurt. It’s a big one. Come on. And what about rule number three? The whole point of making amends is to fulfill rule number three. So, you did it all right, but it didn’t help with the nightmares. Look… one day, you’re gonna have to open up and understand that some people really do want to help you and that they can be trusted. Yeah? Give me your phone. You don’t have ten phone numbers on this thing. Oh, and you’ve been ignoring the texts from Sam. Look, you’ve gotta nurture friendships. I am the only person you have called all week. That is so sad. You’re alone. You’re a hundred years old. You have no history, no family… so, now that you’ve stopped fighting, what do you want? That is utter bullshit. I was an excellent soldier, so I saw a lot of dead bodies, and I know how that can shut you down. And if you are alone, that is the quietest, most personal hell. And, James, it is very hard to escape. Look, I know that you have been through a lot, but you’ve got your mind back, you are being pardoned. I mean, these are good things. You’re free.”

Senator Atwood

“Make this go away. If Congressman Lockhart wants to speak up, silence him for good. What the hell?”

Sarah Wilson

“Yeah, all of it, baby. And we’re taking that one to the soup kitchen. So, put that one over there. That’s right! Uncle Sam, you’re back early. What’s goin’ on? You got mom’s sneaky look on your face.”

“It’ll be fine. It just needs to float enough for me to sell it. We did. And then you were off fighting Doctor Space Cape or whatever while I was holdin’ it together for five long years. Now that the world is going back to normal, this thing’s gotta go. You know the situation we’re in. This is why I prefer not to dwell on it in front of everybody. Can I talk to you?”

“Sam, the boat’s gotta go. No, let me finish. I’m doing everything I can to keep this business afloat. And every day I’m making $5, spending $10. No, don’t start with that. We made a deal before daddy died. You’re out there. I do things my way here. Do you know how hard it was for me to come to terms with the situation? Why would you dig this up? You think I didn’t try the banks? They’re in with all that big business. Don’t, Sam. I just got good with this. Maybe it is time for us to move on. To the rescue?”

“Oh, lined up perfectly. You always gotta do the most, huh? You think this is gonna work? Wait, the appointment’s in an hour. Okay. Now you’re really doing more than the most. All right, boys. I love you. Now, Mr. Liu’s gonna watch over you and no video games. Love you, bye.”

“Those guys or the guy sitting in front of you tryin’ to get a loan? I don’t get what you’re going for here. Are you trying to help us, or indict us? How can you have income if you don’t exist? Funny how things always tighten around us. Miss. I’m a widow.”

“Sam, stop! I don’t want to deal with this again. You are so out of pocket for that. Don’t forget, you joined the Air Force. You didn’t see everything mommy and daddy dealt with. I knew they weren’t gonna help us. It’s not their job. Those people don’t know who daddy was, and he was a giant. What are you trying to prove? And who you trying to prove it to? I swear, after daddy died… I never hid what I thought. You had to go on and fight armies and monsters. And I appreciate that, but you don’t get to come back here and try to right your wrongs just because you couldn’t deal with what was going on here. You don’t know what happened these last five years. I was alone with two babies and I survived. I’m the one who kept that boat from sinkin’. You gonna do me like that when you know I’m right?”

“Oh, my God, Sam. You better look at this.”

Sarah’s Son

“This too, mom? Uncle Sam! Bye. Yes, video games. Three, two, one. go, go, go!”


“What’s good, Big Sam? You know it.”


“Off to save the world again? When you gonna let me borrow the wings, man? That’s cold. Now, loan me a hot $50.”

Lemar Hoskins

Steve Rogers

“How does it feel? It isn’t.”



Georges St-Pierre

“Louie… I’m gonna kill you. Hey! Stop his flopping! He’s like a fish, right? Maybe we should gut him here. Keep going! We’re close! If we get to the border, he’s not gonna follow. Merde!”

Yori Nakajima

“Hey, hey, hey! Hey! What? It’s Mr. Nakajima. Mr. Nakajima! Unique is putting his trash into my trash. And the time has come for me to smack… that’s absurd. No, go away. I’m not in the mood today. Fine, but no talking.”

“Take a look. Nobody made it past 90 this week. So young. Such a shame. You should ask her out. Maybe to bingo or a night of pinochle? I’m game. Tomorrow night, then? Yeah. My son… he loves the red bean mochi. Um… he had a job with a consulting company. And, uh, he was working abroad and he was killed. The police said ‘wrong place, wrong time,’ but… I will never know what really happened to him. I felt it was strange. In here.”

“Hey, what are you doing here? How was the date?”

Sushi Spot

“You guys didn’t order the usual, huh? Feeling a little adventurous? Why are you sorry? Tomorrow night’s great. Just maybe not pinochle. I have a shift, but if you wanna come back here, I should be done around 10:00.”

“Well, if that’s not the most adorably old-fashioned thing anyone’s ever done. Grab a seat, I’ll be done in a few. So, have you dated much since half the fish in the sea came back? What kind of weird? You sound like my dad. Wait, how old are you? What’s up with your gloves? Hmm… let’s play a game. You like games? We keep some games around for boring shifts. I’ll go grab a couple of beers.”

“I’m reading your mind. B-8, sucker. Drink! Come on, drink. Wow, you really can drink. Do you have any siblings? Miss. Drink. Are you close with your parents? Oh, I’m sorry. Um, miss. I think it’s really sweet you’re spending time with Yori. It’s been hard for him since his son died. I think not knowing how it happened is the hardest part for him. Mmm, it really messed him up. You know how you call a guy whose wife died a widower? Or, if you’re parents die, you’re an orphan. You know, there’s no word for someone whose kids die. Because it’s the worst thing that could happen. You good.”


“What? What? Your can isn’t even half full. Why don’t we just share? You don’t gotta body me, Yori. Okay. Okay. Mr. Nakajima. It’s trash. It’s just trash. Hey, man. I’m Unique. It’s like Monique, but it’s got a ‘U’ in there for uniqueness.”

US Military

“Thanks again for coming forward with the shield, Sam. It was the right decision.”


“Did you see that? I just saw a man on the windshield.”


“Hey! You brought my wife back to me. Thank you.”

Winter Soldier flashack 1

“I mean… thank you. Oh… well, that’s done. I can’t, guys. I have to prep for tomorrow’s session. You… ooh! Shit. Please. I didn’t see anything. I didn’t see anything. I didn’t see anything.”

Winter Soldier flashack 2

“Yeah. Half hour before last call? Really?”

German Cop

“He has the money.”

German Cop 2

“You are under arrest!”


“Sorry, I keep thinking. Did you used to play for LSU? Do I know you from somewhere? I do. But where? Come on. I knew it! Falcon! Yes! Yes! Man! Oh… I always wanted to be an Avenger. That’s amazing. I’ve always wondered… how do you guys make a living? Both. I mean your financials are all over the place. Is there some kind of fund for heroes? Or did Stark pay you when he was around? My condolences, by the way. Yeah, right. But were you living off of goodwill this entire time? You have no income over the last five years. Under the old terms, sure. But these days, what, with everyone just showing up, well, things tightened up. Easy there. Look, I’m your side. After all, he’s a hero. Is there any chance, and you could say no, that I could get a selfie with your arms out? Mr. Wilson, Mrs. Wilson… Ms. Wilson. I know your family has bank with us for generations, but we cannot approve you. I’m truly sorry.”

Government Official

“Unrest, in the wake of recent events has left us vulnerable. Every day Americans feel it. While we love heroes who put their lives on the line to defend Earth, we also need a hero to defend this country. We need a real person who embodies America’s greatest values. We need someone to inspire us again, someone who can be a symbol for all of us. So, on behalf of the Department of Defense and our Commander-in-Chief, it is with great honor that we announce here today that the United States of America has a new hero. Join me in welcoming your new Captain America.”
