Ward: So Director Fury faked your death to motivate the Avengers? Hill: The death of a comrade is a particularly effective motivator. Coulson: It wasn't that big of stretch, I stopped breathing for 40 seconds Hill: That time gets longer each time you tell it. Coulson: You get shanked by the Asgardian Mussolini and you can tell it your way.
Hill: For that you will have to ask Agent Coulson. Ward: I'm clearance level 6, I know that Coulson died before the battle of New York, Coulson: [steps out of shadow] Welcome to level 7. Sorry, that corner was really dark, I couldn't help myself. I think there's a bulb out.
